MY EIGHTH (OR SEVENTH) FIESTA GUIDE This is my eighth Fiesta Guide I’ve worked on — well, make that the seventh, since last year’s live events were sadly canceled. This issue is my favorite one yet, because it proves how resilient Santa Barbara can be in the face of this pandemic, but also because my amazing and beautiful mama, Mary, is on the cover. Who knew that this stoic and unsure little cowgirl would grow up to be a powerful and strong matriarch and the best mother to my sisters, Nancy and Kathy, and me? As an eighth-generation native myself, Fiesta was always an important part of my family’s life, and we’re excited to have at least some of the music, dance, food, and spirit of this annual celebration back. It feels like Old Spanish Days, even with modifications, is coming home. My hope is that we celebrate in a way that’s safe — wear your Fiesta-themed masks! — and be appreciative of our city, our neighbors, and all the visitors who come to experience Santa Barbara’s Fiesta spirit! —Terry Ortega

Caring About Healthcare

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

S.B. Police arrested a 14-year-old suspect on 7/31 in connection with the gunshots fired on 7/30 near Anacapa and East Cota streets. Authorities responded to a North Milpas Street address to serve search and arrest warrants at the suspect’s residence, ordering the juvenile to surrender over loudspeaker. The suspect initially failed to comply but eventually exited the residence and was arrested and booked into Juvenile Hall in Santa Maria for attempted murder, participation in a criminal street gang, and discharging a firearm in commission of a felony.

‘PLAYING IT SAFE’: Old Spanish Days VP David Bolton said that Public Health had been giving advice but not mandating a closure, while La Presidenta Stephanie Petlow said it came down to committee members asking, “What would you do for your family?”

Old Spanish Days Officials Announce Flurry of Cancellations on Eve of Festivities

bare five hours after Old Spanish Days closed its press conference on Tuesday afternoon to announce Fiesta would continue, except with masks and social distancing in place, El Segundo Vice Presidente David Bolton sent quick emails stating Wednesday night’s Fiesta Pequeña would not be open to the public and that the courthouse Noches de Ronda were canceled. Tardes de Ronda and Flor y Canto are also canceled. Bolton cited a decision by Old Spanish Days officials to “play things safe” and that

Public Health had been giving advice but not mandating a closure. Stephanie Petlow, La Presidenta for Fiesta this year, said the rationale had been the same they took in canceling Mercado De la Guerra last week: the very large crowds and a concern for the health and safety of the community. It came down to committee members asking, “What would you do for your family?” and that even one case as a result of Fiesta would be too many, she said. Ticketed and private events like Celebración de los Dignatarios at the Santa Barbara Zoo and the Horsemen’s Rendezvous at the Carriage and Western Art Museum

would continue, as the number of guests could be controlled, Petlow said. The same thought kept the open-air rodeo in place. The arts and crafts show is currently a go and is where some mercado vendors will be able to set up their wares. Fiesta Pequeña rehearsals took place as scheduled on Tuesday evening, as many driving by the colorful event noted. Bolton said they were indeed rehearsing for Wednesday’s performance, which would be taped—and again asking for the public to stay away. The footage will be released at an as-yet-unknown n time.

CORONAVIRUS

S

anta Barbara County Public Health Officer Dr. Henning Ansorg announced Tuesday that masks will be required indoors in all publicly accessible spaces —regardless of vaccination status—throughout Santa Barbara County. The new mandate goes into effect Friday, August 6, at 5 p.m. This new mask mandate comes as county health officers continue to track a dramatic increase in Delta cases. At an internal county briefing Monday, Ansorg noted that 85 percent of all active COVID cases involve the Delta variant. Citing these numbers, Ansorg stressed the extent to which the Delta was a “game changer.” The Delta variant packs 1,000 times the viral load as the initial COVID virus that struck the United States. Even people who’ve already been vaccinated carry this enhanced viral load, meaning they can function as

potent spreaders even though they have few if any symptoms. Typically, people who’ve been vaccinated do not experience nearly as severe symptoms as people who have not been vaccinated. That being said, one-seventh of the individuals hospitalized currently were vaccinated against COVID. The rest were not vaccinated at all, underscoring the extent to which the unvaccinated are functioning as kindling in this latest surge. Before most Fiesta events were canceled, some supervisors, such as Das Williams, reportedly expressed concern about large numbers of visitors thronging to Santa Barbara from elsewhere in the state. California currently ranks as third highest of 50 states in new COVID cases. It remains to be seen how the new mandate will be enforced. —Nick Welsh

S.B. Police arrested a transient man 7/28 for allegedly brandishing a knife and threatening a family on State Street near the S.B. Museum of Art. Suspect Robert J. Tobarro, 58, allegedly verbally threatened a young boy in the family, and when the boy’s father tried to intervene, Tobarro pulled out a knife. Tobarro was arrested and booked in County Jail for making criminal threats, child endangerment, and brandishing a weapon. He is being held on $100,000 bail. Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte’s daughter Kirsten Perotte, 38, was arrested 8/3 on nearly a dozen charges, including assault, sexual battery, kidnapping, stalking, and robbery. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Perotte had assaulted two people, one of whom she’d been dating, at a residence in Goleta. Lt. Robert Minter stated the sensitivity of the domestic violence charge and applicable law precluded more information being given; Perotte is held on $500,000 bail. Mayor Perotte stated, “Like a lot of other families, we have challenges, and we’ve been trying to work through it. We love her very much, and we hope, because this is a family matter, that you’ll respect our privacy at this time.”

OUTDOORS Los Padres National Forest officials announced plans to remove and replace two concrete low-water road crossings on Davy Brown Creek and Munch Creek along Sunset Valley Road in the Sisquoc River watershed. The existing concrete crossings will be replaced with channel-spanning bridges. According to the U.S. Forest Service, the concrete crossings are in poor condition and functioning improperly due to high water-flow events. Construction will begin this week and is estimated to be completed by 3/30/2022. During this time, Nira, Davy Brown, the Catway OHV Trail, and the campgrounds accessed from Sunset Valley Road will be temporarily closed.

Her opponent, Harmon, was first appointed to the council two years ago to fill a vacancy and then elected without opposition; she has emerged as the council’s most outspoken progressive. Most recently, Harmon beat out County Supervisor Das Williams — a political veteran — in a polite but fierce campaign to secure Governor Gavin Newsom’s appointment to the Coastal Commission. If elected, Johnson said all her energies would be focused on the needs of downtown. On the issues, Harmon has touted her support for a just-cause eviction ordinance. Johnson has indicated more interest in finding common ground between landlords and tenants and working to find compromise. Two other candidates have taken out papers for the same District 6 seat: electrician Jason Carlton and disc jockey Zachary —Nick Welsh Pike.

The average payment is $4,846. By contrast, the state has been relatively sluggish in dispensing its $14 million pot of emergency rental gold for the same purposes. While United Way of S.B. County and president/CEO Steve Ortiz have been processing 60 claims a week, the county has managed 10. Ortiz said the United Way learned the art of how to process emergency aid applications during the Thomas Fire. With the advent of COVID, he said the scale of claims processing jumped from the hundreds to the thousands. Ortiz said his agency has served as the portal to get $27 million in emergency funds to needy families. Other agencies, he said, hire third-party contractors to do the job. Relative efficiencies aside, Ortiz said, the need still exceeds the assistance. The 1,333 households helped—the vast majority making less than 50 percent of the area median income — already pales in comparison to the 6,558 households that have turned in applications. Although more federal dollars are on the horizon—as many as $20 million later this month—United Way is not in a position to accept new applications. In the meantime, the state is most definitely still accepting new applications. The state fund has approximately $4 million as yet unspoken for (apply at housing.ca.gov). —Nick Welsh

No Confidence? SBCC to Vote

Dementia Education & Support by Alzheimer’s Association

EDUCATION

anta Barbara City College’s Academic Senate is moving forward with a vote of no confidence against five out of seven of the school’s Board of Trustees members, in a political move that has been in the works for the better part of the summer. The faculty representatives made the decision in a 13-2 vote, with Tricia Mautone abstaining, after a lengthy discussion in a meeting on Tuesday that stretched over four hours. Every argument was considered in what senate President Raeanne Napoleon said was “probably the most important vote at Academic Senate at SBCC. “A vote of no confidence shouldn’t be rushed. It should be ironclad,” Napoleon said. “We have a huge responsibility in front of us today.” The move is likely to put pressure on the trustees, who are scheduled to vote again on Thursday on a vaccine mandate. It was a last-ditch effort by the senate and members of the faculty who felt some board members are disconnected from the campus community. “I’m worried about divisiveness,” Napoleon said. “And I’m worried about a greater divide. We want an effective board

l

that works for the campus community, not for the greater community.” The motion specifically mentions trustees Veronica Gallardo, Peter Haslund, Kate Parker, Robert Miller, and Marsha Croninger, and excludes trustees Jonathan Abboud and Anna Everett from the no confidence vote. Attached to the vote will be a “writ of particulars,” a list of grievances and reasons behind the decision. Two members of the senate voted against the measure, Kathy O’Connor and Russel Granger, though neither were there for the entire duration of the meeting; their votes were made by Mautone, according to their wishes. Granger, who represents the technologies division, spoke on the vote before he signed off. The Automotive Technology program has been holding in-person classes for a year without a mandate, and he said he didn’t see the need to push for one now. Napoleon will draft the resolution and inform interim Superintendent/President Helen Benjamin and the Board of Trustees before its scheduled meeting on August 3. —Ryan P. Cruz

ee Moldaver, for more than 30 years Santa Barbara’s most ubiquitous community activist and by far its most mysterious, died July 28 at a Santa Barbara acute-care facility while recovering from a particularly difficult gastrointestinal infection that laid him up in the intensive care unit for more than six weeks. He was 71. In recent years, Moldaver had been most active with the Santa Barbara Chapter of the Audubon Society; before that he’d been a prominent public face of the Citizens Planning Association, the Trust for Public Land, the Gaviota Coast Conservancy, and the Public Education Foundation, to name just a few of his endeavors. In the will he’d been preparing at the time of his death, Moldaver had named 16 community organizations he wished to leave money to. In his apartment, there were hats of more than 100 organizations with which he’d worked. For decades, Moldaver would show up regularly at Board of Supervisors meetings and City Council sessions to weigh in on

CALL FOR ACTION: School boardmembers Kate Ford (left) and Laura Capps issued a letter Tuesday calling for a vaccine mandate for SBUSD teachers and staff.

S.B. Schools Mandate COVID Vaccine?

I

f an emergency measure now being pushed by two members of the Santa Barbara Unified School Board and Superintendent Hilda Maldonado prove persuasive, all teachers and district employees will have to show proof of vaccination — or submit to regular testing for COVID — when schools open August 17. Boardmembers Laura Capps and Kate Ford issued an op-ed call to action to this end Tuesday. Also signing the media notice — though not the op-ed — was Maldonado. Capps and Ford noted that only 65 percent of district teachers and staff have said they were vaccinated; that information was confirmed either by self-reporting or by confidentially showing proof of vaccination cards to district nurses. “That percentage is far from where we should be,” Ford and Capps declared, “especially for staff members who are interacting with young children who can’t yet be vaccinated. Full vaccination provides the safety our schools need.” To that end, the school board is holding an emergency meeting this Thursday, August 5, at 2 p.m. to vote on a vaccine requirement. If it passes, the measure would be effective immediately.

“Our kids have lost too much already,” Capps and Ford wrote. “We owe it to them to and our school staff to beat this pandemic once and for all.” Polio, they noted, once disabled 35,000 people a year, paralyzing 15,000. That disease was wiped out, they added, in 1979 “not by herd immunity but by a successful vaccination mandate.” How this plays with the unions representing teachers and other district employees has yet to be seen. Calls to the new head of the teachers’ union went unreturned by deadline, but Paul Rooney, head of the California School Employees Association Chapter 37, was dubious in the extreme. Rooney made it clear his union has yet to take any position, but he personally thought such mandates were oppressive and without scientific foundation. “It’s a violation of people’s inalienable rights,” he stated. “And it’s misleading as to what the research actually shows. But people watch too much TV and are fed too many lies.” Rooney said. He described COVID as an infection on par with the flu, adding that he himself had not had a flu shot since 1967. —Nick Welsh

CORONAVIRUS

EF Internationals’ COVID Cases Double

T

he EF International Language Campus has a confirmed outbreak of 46 students with COVID-19, nearly twice the number when the outbreak was first announced. The school had 25 confirmed cases as of July 22. EF has not closed its campus, but the Santa Barbara Public Health Department is reportedly working with school leadership to mitigate the situation. EF spokesperson Jill Reilly said, “The infected individuals have been in isolation, and close contacts have been quarantining per public health guidelines.” According to Jackie Ruiz, public information officer for county Public Health, only a small number of students testing positive were living with host families. EF host families are required to be fully vaccinated.

EF has 515 foreign students enrolled at the Santa Barbara campus. Other sources confirmed 50 percent of EF students are fully vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine and only 100 of the students are living with host families. These sources state the positive cases are quarantined at the Tropicana Gardens in Isla Vista. All EF students not living with host families are also housed in the Tropicana, which EF typically rents during the summer. The Public Health Department’s outbreak investigation is ongoing. EF stated that free testing will remain available for the entire campus community while administrators work with Public Health to retrain their staff and implement new COVID-19 guidelines. —Lily Mae Lazarus INDEPENDENT.COM

CANNABIS

Grower Pleads to Bribery, Tax Evasion

T

he issue of cannabis reeks of contention in Santa Barbara County, most recently in the announcement last Thursday of five finalists for a storefront in Orcutt. The previous round ended in a lawsuit brought by NHC Orcutt 405. The owner of the property where that cannabis shop was proposed is Helios Dayspring, who has pleaded out to felony charges of bribery of a county supervisor and tax evasion. In that case, federal Public Corruption prosecutors say Dayspring paid $32,000 for positive votes and advocacy on cannabis regulations to Adam Hill, Third District supervisor for San Luis Obispo, who died by suicide on August 6, 2020. The filing also outlines Dayspring’s unsuccessful attempt to bribe the mayor of Grover Beach, where one of his dispensaries is located. Dayspring owns numerous cannabis grow parcels in San Luis and Santa Barbara counties. He has seven in the Tepusquet area, most of them in EDRNs, or Existing Development Rural Neighborhoods, that were deleted from the cannabis rolls by S.B. County supervisors as of August 2020. He’d received notices of violation for expanding the cannabis footprint on two of the properties.

Randy Fox, attorney for NHC Orcutt 405, argued for its application in Superior Court on July 23, but Judge Colleen Sterne ruled against them. Fox didn’t think they’d appeal the decision. Brittany Heaton, the principal cannabis analyst for the county, said Dayspring’s felony conviction would not be part of the storefront’s background check as he was only the property owner. As a limited liability company, NHC Orcutt 405 is listed by the California Secretary of State’s office at 998 Huston Street in Grover Beach, the same address as the Natural Healing Center owned by Helios Dayspring. If he were an applicant, said Heaton, the felony conviction would be a disqualifying factor. Another likely disqualifying factor: Dayspring lowballed his income to the IRS by about $5.2 million in 2018 alone. The loss to the federal treasury was $3,438,793 for 2014-2018, according to Dayspring’s plea deal, which also cited tax evasion in S.L.O. and S.B. counties. Dayspring could face up to 13 years in federal prison, which includes reductions for his cooperation, acceptance of responsibility, and agreement to pay his taxes. —Jean Yamamura

by Tyler Hayden he video begins with Rob Dayton introducing himself to the Believer’s Edge congregation as the City of Santa Barbara’s senior transportation planner and a founding member of their all-male Christian ministry. It’s 2014 and the group, operating with a self-described “calling and destiny” to “influence” local government, businesses, media, and education, had accomplished much to be proud of in its seven years of service, Dayton says. With trademark enthusiasm, he walks the crowd through a PowerPoint presentation of his “Life Mastery” program before inviting Steve Wagner, at the time Goleta’s director of Public Works, to the stage to talk about his Christian beliefs and professional ambitions. A few months earlier, then-Police Chief Cam Sanchez had spoken to the congregation about how Jesus had figured prominently in his law enforcement career. Once Wagner hands the mic back, Dayton grows serious. “Guys,” he says, lowering his voice, “what I’d like to see is a city takeover. … Give me 50 men and we can take back Santa Barbara.” He commends Muslims for not hiding their intent to conquer the globe; Christians, he says, shouldn’t be ashamed of their same goal. “We have been given a kingdom to manage,” he intones, “and this is about taking over the world.” “I want us to start by taking this region, this coastal plane,” Dayton continues, his energy rising. “I want it to be known internationally that the City of Santa Barbara is alive with God.” That this is where people go to be healed in Jesus’s name, where the church makes the economy work, where there isn’t homelessness or drug addiction because residents are so blessed. “That’s my vision,” Dayton says. “Do you want to be part of that, guys? C’mon!” The video and more recent statements and actions by Santa Barbara’s longtime transportation chief — including allegedly providing a secularized version of his “Life Mastery” curriculum to city staff — were the subject of an inquiry made this spring by three members of City Council concerned about Dayton’s involvement with Believer’s Edge and whether it blurred the line between his personal religiosity and his duties as a public official. That inquiry caused Dayton, who earns approximately $190,000 a year and has been on paid leave since May, to file a complaint with the city’s Human Resources department that alleges he is being discriminated against and that he has been passed over for prior promotions because of his Christian convictions. This Tuesday, the council met in closed session with city attorneys to discuss Dayton’s complaint, as well as the threat of a lawsuit. Dayton, City Hall sources say, is demanding a $500,000 payment to avoid litigation, though that number could not be independently verified. Because of the legal and political sensitivities involved, no one with knowledge of the matter has been willing to speak about it on the record. As the name “Believer’s Edge” enters the public discourse, with lingering questions over City Council candidate Barrett Reed’s past involvement with the ministry, cofounder John Mullen answered questions from the Independent this week about its guiding principles and the impact it has had on the Santa Barbara community. Believer’s Edge came together in Rob Dayton 2007 when Dayton, Mullen — a former developer and healthcare industry executive — and several members of Calvary Chapel created an offshoot group from across a dozen area churches who wanted to part-

Ever Been Bit by a Dead Dog?

DON’T ASK, DON’T YELL: Five minutes ago, I wasn’t competent to drop the phrase “viral load”

into a sentence. But in the intervening 300 seconds, naturally, I have become an instant expert. To the extent that the so-called Delta variant —which first arrived on the world’s doorstep in December 2020—has emerged as the COVID equivalent of “the fast zombie” it’s because of its viral load. It’s COVID on steroids. On meth. And in a really bad mood. Based on recent studies—a phrase that should always elicit deep skepticism—it turns out that a person infected with the Delta variant has generated 1,260 times more COVID virus in their body than someone infected with the very first COVID strain that showed up. And that’s about 10 times more than the Alpha variant, which until recently was the one kicking our ass. Perhaps people are confused by the term “variant.” It suggests a gentle gradation of threat levels, akin to having your dog get in a fight with a racoon instead of a possum, or perhaps even a skunk. Not even close. Imagine driving your car into a wall at 20 miles an hour. You might walk away. How about at 200 miles an hour? Or 2,000? What we don’t know, admittedly, is a whole lot. But based on preliminary research, the Delta variant is 50 percent more contagious than the other kind; and based on a study from Scotland, if you get it, your chances of getting hospitalized are twice as high. All

this, we are told, makes it twice as transmissible as the other variants.

The Big Wow here is that even if you have been vaccinated, you can still be infected and pack just as much “viral load” as someone who has not. Even if we stood dutifully in line to get our two shots, we can still be the unwitting suicide bomber out there, clueless about what we have in our backpacks. So, yes, that means face masks. Let me say it nicely: Please. Let me say it not so nicely: Shut up. I had a conversation this week with a man who for the past 11 years has led a union representing 750 school district employees. Mandated vaccinations and masks, he told me, did absolutely no good and were a violation of our inalienable rights. This was all part and parcel, he explained, of the Marxist regime running the show. A UCSB professor, always impeccably polite, has taken to testifying at Board of Supervisors and City Council meetings, explaining how the whole COVID thing is part of a government plot to make people dependent upon handouts. Such conspiratorial thinking is the last refuge for people who can’t face the reality of chaos and disorder. To them, I point out that 85 percent of the COVID patients admitted have the fast-zombie variant. To them, I’d also add, one of seven patients had been vaccinated. And the numbers are going up. On July 1 — a couple of weeks after Joe Biden and Gavin Newsom declared “Mission accomplished” — Santa Barbara reported nine new COVID cases. At that time, we had only 57 active cases countywide, 10 of

whom were sick enough to be hospitalized. Four of those were in the ICU. As of August 3, we had 430 active cases, 31 of whom were hospitalized. And five of those were in the ICU. The vampire was not dead. It was only sleeping. Anyone who watches bad horror movies would have known better. In this context, the stake we need to put through the vampire’s heart—imperfect as it admittedly is— is the vaccination. Maybe Cottage Hospital will need to restart its fabulously successful drive-through clinic by Patterson and Hollister, a model of brisk efficiency coupled with warm compassion.  Of the 114,091 total pokes in the arm administered by Cottage Health practitioners, almost 100,000 took place at this clinic. All the pokees waited the requisite 15 minutes for adverse effects, making congenial small talk with the 643 volunteers mobilized into action to make this all happen. Not one of the vaccinated experienced the dreaded anaphylactic shock that sometimes occurs. Two patients —just two— exhibited mild reactions and were taken to the ER for evalu-

ation. Both were released. Get the stake. When you have vampires

to kill, you can’t afford the luxury of worrying about splinters. And based on Cottage’s

experience, there were no splinters. In the meantime, of course, we have the Fiesta debacle, sad, stupid, and, in hindsight, utterly predictable. Recent events have dem-

onstrated that no, in fact, the show doesn’t need to go on. Like everyone else, I have been

beyond desperate to get outside and crack a few dozen cascarón eggs over the heads of loved ones and total strangers. But with no parades and no mercados, there could be no cascarones. Let’s face it; a Fiesta without cas-

carones is like Easter without Easter eggs, Thanksgiving without the turkey, and Halloween without trick-or-treaters.

In hindsight, the lack of public discussion by politicians, public health officials, and the media about holding so vast a super-spreader celebration—however truncated and amputated—has been appalling. The public messaging from Old Spanish Days, the group organizing Fiesta, hasn’t been much better. OSD hosted a press conference on the Mission steps this Tuesday at high noon to affirm the show was still going on while imploring the community to behave safely. Then after 5 p.m. that same day, an email quietly squeaked out stating that the public was being disinvited from Fiesta Pequeña and that the Noches de la Ronda —held in the Sunken Gardens—were deep-sixed. By dribs and drabs, it would soon emerge that the afternoon events in the Sunken Gardens were also being scrubbed. County Public Health officials had quietly suggested it would not be advisable to hold these events in the current context on county property. Even more quietly, the folks at OSD decided to agree. Clearly, it’s the right call. But what took us so long to get there? And if you crack an egg, wear a mask.

Gassing Off

Facebook readers sparred over the city banning natural gas in new construction. Daniela Schiller Johnson I’m surprised the vote was unanimous. They aren’t suggesting folks have solar arrays, and with the known fact that SCE can turn off the power anytime the wind blows, for fire protection, I guess the council doesn’t appreciate cooking on a gas stove. Building code upgrades are necessary for fire abatement and safety, but as the price of home building skyrockets, the freedom to personalize your home should weigh in a bit. • Karen Adams Thrasher I’m sure SoCal Edison is thrilled. Get on the “bandwagon,” Santa Barbara! Too bad about dinner when electric providers turn off your power because wind gusts might start a fire (because they haven’t properly maintained their “infrastructure”). Electrical power might only be off for a few hours … or a few days. Fortunately for me, I won’t be buying a new home. • Michael Chiacos I know everyone is worried about PSPS power shutoffs but the City of S.B. has NEVER had a PSPS event. They happen more in rural wind-prone areas and all the utilities are spending billions on hardening to reduce the frequency of PSPSs. Gretchen Hackett Brinser It’s not just no stovetop cooking during a power outage. Also no oven and no hot water, so no showers or baths. • Chris Story I’d agree with this if the electrical grid was solid and electricity was more reasonable. That’s just not the case. This isn’t fair to force people to do this. • Price Cusolito People are going to be pissed when they see their electric bill after running their dryer. • Dan Rhodes I wonder how many of those who voted for this have fully battery backed up solar? I know I can’t afford this and so am at the mercy of our decrepit and dangerous power grid. My bill alone has gone up 50 percent in the last year with no change in use. If I didn’t have gas on outage days, I’d be using propane or even naphtha in my camp stove. Also, cooking on electric sucks which is why very few professional kitchens use it. • Katie Davis I LOVE my induction cooktop. Kids who grow up in homes with gas stoves are 40 percent more likely to have asthma. Cheaper to use

new heat pump for water, heat, and air, and all new homes have to have solar — this is the right move!

Olympics Ahoy

L

oved the Avery Brundage piece [in the Angry Poodle Barbecue on July 22]. Those of us who were aspiring Olympic sailing athletes grew to hate the guy. I was involved in two Olympic sailing campaigns, starting in 1976 and ending in the fiasco of 1980, when my partner and I were first in the U.S. in the Flying Dutchman class only to have President Carter cancel U.S. participation in the 1980 games. So much for my Olympic dreams. Throughout our campaigns, we would travel all around the country and to the World Championship in Kiel, Germany. Virtually all of our major competitors, primarily in Europe, were either members of their respective military and or were completely supported by their countries. This was a huge advantage as moving a sailboat, even one as small as a Flying Dutchman, was expensive. In the U.S., thanks to Brundage’s legacy, we had to fend for ourselves like the “True Olympians” he envisioned. Thanks, Avery. —Richard Brough Rogers, S.B.

obituaries Joyce Lorraine Trevillian 9/10/1931 - 7/27/2021

Joyce Lorraine Trevillian died peacefully on July 27, 2021 at her home in Santa Barbara, just a bit shy of her 90th birthday. Born on September 10, 1931 to Gerald and Lottie Mae Morris in Ventura, CA, Joyce loved being the older sister to her two brothers, Gary and Richard Morris. Partnered with Gary, she cultivated a love of music and dancing, as the two won several local dance competitions. After graduating from Carpinteria High School, the draw to perform led her to attend The Playhouse School of Theater Arts in Pasadena. While she never professionally performed, she enjoyed few things as much as a well done musical, and made sure to expose her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the arts. Joyce was blessed with three daughters, and worked hard to raise them as strong, independent women. Leading by example, she established her own property management company in 1985. Known affectionately as “Mrs. T” by her employees, she ran Kamunity Properties with the help of her daughters until the day she passed. Joyce loved animals, and while she only ever had dogs as pets, her love of all creatures was demonstrated by her life size statues of jungle animals at her home. She was also a generous patron of the Santa Barbara Zoo and was honored to name one of the snow leopards many years ago. Her generosity knew no bounds, and she donated funds to many local school, theater, and sports programs. She was a lover of all sports, and would spend many hours watching whatever was on ESPN. Like her father before her, Joyce had Dodger blue running through her veins. She followed the Dodger baseball season closely and would often attend games at Dodger Stadium to eat 16

a Dodger Dog, boo an umpire, and cheer on her beloved team. Despite her many interests, nothing brought Joyce more joy than her family and enriching their lives any way she could. By sharing her love of travel and taking them on trips to such places as Tahoe, Hawaii , Alaska, and Arizona, she created a lifetime of fond memories. A true matriarch, her happiness was deeply rooted in the happiness of her loved ones. Her family will miss their “Great” dearly, especially her strength, kindness, and most of all, her love. She is survived by her daughters Sheila Brotherton (Paul), Victoria Trevillian, and Sheri Gardner, as well as grandchildren Brandon Smith (Deirdre), Shannon Beaudette (Brandon), Tori Shyrock (Tyler), Jessica Self (Hunter), Justin Gardner (Tessa), and Austin Herrick, Her 12 great-grandchildren Callie, Carter, Lauren, Tobin, Eli, Tessa, Cailyn, Zachary, Sawyer, Ava, Elise, and Bo will miss their “Joyce the Great.” A private service will be held at Welch-Ryce-Haider Funeral Chapel.

Orlando Fedaleo

8/29/1921 - 5/9/2021

Orlando Fedaleo of Santa Barbara, peacefully passed away May 9, 2021 just shy of his 100th birthday at Vista Del Monte. He was born in Cranston, Rhode Island August 29, 1921, the second child of John and Fannie Fedaleo. The family moved to southeast Los Angeles, where he grew up. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps in August 1942 and proudly served until May 1946 in the V-12 Program, as a 90-mm gun crew member. Following his service, he attended Santa Barbara Teachers College (UCSB) earning his teaching credential in industrial arts and a Counseling Credential. In 1949, he married the love of his life, Ruby Bishop, who he met on a blind date. They had 68 years of life together. His first teaching job took the young couple to Bakersfield, where their family grew with the birth of two daughters. In 1957 they returned toSanta Barbara, where he taught at Santa Barbara Junior High for 20 years. Dad was a kind, sweet man that believed in the simplicity of living a life with those you love, always finding the positive in everyone. He believed that “being true to yourself” was very important and said he couldn’t remember a time he wasn’t true himself. Things he enjoyed were: his mother’s homemade ravioli, fishing, ballroom dancing and traveling. He loved his vegetable

garden and grew fabulous roses. Everyone raved about his dynamite chocolate chip cookies. If you couldn’t find him he was surf fishing at Hendry’s Beach. In 2016, they moved to Vista Del Monte Retirement Community. His family would especially like to thank Abraham, Ya-Ping, Ernesto, Tony, Charmian and the staff for their compassionate and professional care of our father. Special thanks to his Hospice nurse Andy. Orlando is survived by daughters Debra Fedaleo and Jan Gabe (Sean), grandchildren Lea Caldwell (Ryan), Jamie Gabe and Christopher Gabe, sister Marie Twibell (Bill). He will be interred next to his wife at Calvary Cemetery in Santa Barbara. A memorial will be held on Friday, August 27 at 11:00am at Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Santa Barbara Junior High in Orlando Fedaleo’s name.

Kenneth Arthur Hunt 7/21/1958 - 7/20/2020

Countless people, many of them strangers, will wonder where he went, the man with the kind blue eyes who ushered them to safety, took time to listen to their stories of heartbreak and loss, gave them cigarettes, socks, a sandwich, bought them a bus ticket, sat with them for hours on the beach providing consolation and support, joking and cheering people up, telling someone they had a beautiful smile or patting their dog. The outreach workers and police officers will wonder also, he often consulted with them or called them to notify them of a young girl on the streets, a homeless person who was in trouble, or of a dealer who was doing transactions in front of the grocery store where shoppers were exiting with their children. The Mental Wellness center, the place he volunteered before COVID shut it down, will feel his absence, that nice guy who fought his own demons sharing whatever he

had with the less fortunate. He may have been anonymous but his care and concern for others was not – although he would never say so, his kindness made a difference in so many lives he touched, especially the most vulnerable. He is much beloved by his family and friends. He will be terribly missed.

Patricia (Patty) Tompkins 2/7/1943 - 7/25/2021

On Sunday July 25, 2021, Patricia (Patty) Tompkins mother of four children, passed away at the age of 78 at Serenity house in Santa Barbara, California.

Patty was preceded in death by her father, William, and her mother Helen as well both of her stepparents.

At Christmas he surprised everyone with silly gifts and always arrived with armloads of food and prepared a spread like no other when he was the chef. He woke at the crack of dawn to send recipes and random gifts to perplexed family and fiends and made everyone laugh with his memories of good times growing up and wonderful times spent on Cape Cod with extended family. He enjoyed spending time with his dear friends in Santa Barbara, CA, Massachusetts, and Maine. He

rior, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a fundraiser for the needy, and a dear friend passed peacefully with her two daughters and husband by her side. She left us with lasting and valuable lessons such as to always lead with your heart and to show limitless compassion for others. She taught us to never just identify a problem that causes suffering and then not do something about it. She taught us, as well, that it’s perfectly all right to get angry but to always channel that anger constructively. Fittingly, she labeled her personal crusade against cancer “Tara Says F#%^ Cancer” or “#TSFC.” Tara was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer at age 40, nearly nine years ago. Cancer caught her by complete surprise. After all, practically no one her age gets diagnosed with cancer, especially stage four colon cancer and right out of the blue. She was told back then that she had six months to live, but with two very young daughters and a husband, that was just not acceptable to her, so she resolved to fight it with all her might, and she was mighty. She built a network of doctors, herbalists, nutritionists, and the TSFC Warrior Team to attack cancer from all sides. She received more than 100 chemotherapy treatments and kept the disease at bay for more than eight of those years. It was never enough, though, to just fight cancer, practice law, and be there for her family. Tara did so much more. As part of her post-diagnosis journey, she helped many others cope with cancer. She wrote a blog about her war on cancer that was rich with information on how to beat it and how to avoid it. “Get a colonoscopy,” she urged everyone around her. “Don’t wait.” She was always ready and willing to provide guidance to people one on one in our community and elsewhere who were battling cancer at its various stages. She also told their stories online and raised money for them. She used her high intellect and boundless energy to make sense of it all and fight to win. And win she did, for much longer than predicted. She told me more than once that being diagnosed with stage four cancer helped her identify what she should be doing with her time. Of course, she would spend as much quality time with her family and her friends as she could, but she would also fight for causes that she believed in. And there were many. Her commitment and energy for those causes was as infectious as it was limitless, and she was always recruiting. Notably, Tara spearheaded the successful effort to fight the City of Santa Barbara’s proposed gang injunction. In fact, it was the first gang injunction to be defeated in the nation. Her fight against it began in the spring of 2011 and a year or so after her diagnosis. She was personally responsible for recruiting the pro bono attorneys who, 18

Tara was one of the founders, along with attorney Jody Kaufman and Dianna Van Wingerden, of the nonprofit Santa Barbara Teen Legal Clinic. The Teen Legal Clinic has three main programs, including pro bono legal representation for youth for certain legal issues such as immigration and academic expulsion/ suspension proceedings. Tara believed that by educating and empowering youth, Santa Barbara would be a better place. At the heart of this was Tara’s commitment to Restorative Justice. The recently renamed Tara Haaland-Ford Restorative Justice Project aims to bring restorative justice to Santa Barbara’s juvenile and adult criminal justice systems as well as to our schools. The Tara Haaland-Ford Restorative Justice Project seeks to repair the harm of a crime by bringing victims, offenders, and community members together to decide the consequences of the crime committed. The larger effect of the restorative justice process can be transformational. Last summer, in furtherance of the teen clinic’s educational program, Tara taught the Street Law curriculum at the Santa Barbara and Ventura colleges of law. Most recently, the clinic gave Zoom presentations on immigration, specifically DACA, and LGBTQ+ legal rights. Their upcoming September presentation will be on restorative justice. Tara was a standout member of the Santa Barbara bar. In recognition of that, she was awarded both the Legal Community Appreciation Award and the Richard Abbe Humanitarian Award by the Santa Barbara County Bar Association. She was also given the Heroes of Justice Award by the Santa Barbara Legal Aid Foundation. She served as Secretary of the Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention Commission, a judge in Teen Court, President of the Barristers’ Club of Santa Barbara, a member of the Board of Directors and Santa Barbara Bar Association, and she was a founding member and on the Board of Santa Barbara Defenders (Santa Barbara’s private criminal defense bar association). Tara also, somehow, found time to devote to the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Washington Elementary School. In fact, she was its president (2015-2016), and under her leadership, she conceptualized and helped create the Gwendolyn Strong memorial bench. She also helped change Washington’s annual Jog-a-Thon fundraiser to an all-inclusive Move-a-Thon. In 2018, immediately after the Montecito mudslides, along with five other Washington School moms — Cara Chirappa, Linda Meyer, Holly Parker, Anna Stump, and Laura Zoltan — and then joined by a Marymount mom, Jennifer Harris, Tara founded Santa Barbara Support Network. The organization’s mission was to support the immediate needs of families impacted by the mudslides, who had lost loved ones, homes, belongings, and so many other parts of their lives. While there were many organizations helping during our community’s time of need, the Support Network founders knew their organization would be more effective in making COURTESY PHOTOS

along with a deputy public defender, represented the original 30 or so named defendants who were subject to the proposed injunction. To support the effort further, she established a consulting relationship with the Southern California ACLU. She served as the group’s liaison to community groups interested in fighting the injunction. She reached out to donors and obtained thousands of dollars in funding for expert witnesses and costs. She organized and appeared at several public forums having to do with the proposed injunction. She connected with local progressive politicians, including our current mayor, Cathy Murillo, who was one of only two city councilmembers who voted against the injunction. After Judge Colleen Sterne rejected the city’s call for the injunction, in July 2014, the ACLU said they were going to issue a press release about the gang injunction’s defeat. Tara said, “I hope they say that this was a group of local defense attorneys who worked pro bono from start to finish. It is kinda like a fairy tale.”

She is survived by her son Mark Gambetta (Kim), daughter Sharon Brown (Mike), grandchildren Megan, Evan, Grace Gambetta, Paige and Abby Brown, sister Betty Colwell (Tom). A second generation Santa Barbaran, Jackie was born January 9, 1935, to Sheriff John Ross and Lydia (Scudelari) Ross. Jackie graduated from Santa Barbara Catholic High School in 1952 and married Frank Gambetta, her high school sweetheart, on September 17, 1955. Frank and Jackie were married 63 years until his passing in 2018. Jackie worked part time while the kids were in school; weekends were spent either at the motocross track or at Lake Nacimiento. Some of her fondest memories were spending time on the lake with family and friends. Grandma Cutie (as her grandkids called her) was a true gem. She loved nothing more than spending time with her grandkids. Always with a smile on her face, Jackie was quick with a one liner and never passed up a chance for an adventure. In her later years she enjoyed playing golf and bridge where she met lifelong friends. Jackie and Frank enjoyed cruising the world together, having embarked on over 25 cruises. Her favorite part was when they would sail away and play “What a Wonderful World”. If there ever comes a day When we can’t be together Keep me in your heart I’ll stay there forever The family would like to thank her wonderful caregivers, Silvia, Nancy and Sonia and her physical therapist Anna Maria.

He and his wife Charlene owned and operated Harrington Electric, an electrical contracting company, from 1979 through 1997.

DESFILE ON FILM and BULL ON THE WALL

T

he Santa Barbara Historical Museum continues to adapt

and support Old Spanish Days through imaginative exhibits that take full advantage of both the museum’s extensive collection of Fiesta memorabilia and the deep knowledge around this tradition of the Santa Barbara community. The latest version of its ongoing Project Fiesta! can be seen through August 28, and it employs a battery of new high-tech projectors to create an immersive experience of the famed El Desfile de Histórico. Larger-than-life colorful footage of the equestrian parade dances across both walls of the main gallery, giving those who miss the pageantry of the event, which had to be canceled again this year, a chance to relive some of its former glory. The innovative use of projectors and video also addresses the museum’s ongoing commitment to sustainable, low-waste exhibition installations, as it takes the place of multiple largeprinted wall texts. Those are reserved for the entrance to the show and for the labels that identify the fascinating tableau that has been assembled down the center of the room. Here you will find carriages, costumes, and even a pair of majestic life-size model horses, by Charles Donelan all the better to display the intricate leather and silver work of some classic Fiesta parade tack. The carriages come courtesy of the Santa Barbara Carriage and Western Art Museum, a longtime supporter of the Desfile, and the horses were loaned by the area’s Equine Assistance and Evacuation Team, who use the scale models to train volunteers. Inspiration for much of the fabulous Fiesta attire on display derives from Richard Henry Dana’s thrilling account of the De la Guerra wedding in Two Years Before the Mast. Items on display range from a reimagined white DLG wedding dress to an embossed leather jacket and a tiny toreador’s suit lavished with embroidery from its collar to its tight mid-calf cuffs. The overall impression of gaiety and expressive license tends to overcome any too-particular concerns about authenticity. For the Historical Museum, Project Fiesta! is only one of the impressive things accomplished during the pandemic quarantine. The permanent collection has been reinstalled, with wider walkways, a great section on the Flying A Studios, and plenty of previously unseen artifacts. Deputy Director Dacia Harwood explained that the quarantine had been a remarkably fertile period for the museum in terms of collecting, as people were going through their belongings and sending materials of historical importance more frequently than ever before during this time. In the museum’s middle gallery, a substantial show of images associated with the Mission is on display under the title “Queen of the Hill.” Finally, don’t leave without paying respects to Ed Borein’s steer. This magnificent fellow was in the first Fiesta parade in 1924. Was it Borein himself who performed taxidermy on his head? Ask the staff when you visit the Santa Barbara Historical Museum for Fiesta Project! 2021.

omen and girls are a

driving force behind this year’s Old Spanish Days Fiesta celebration, as it emerges this year, a little different because of the pandemic and changing safety guidelines. La Presidenta Stephanie Petlow has served Old Spanish Days in a host of capacities for 20 years. Petlow’s daughter Michelle began her Fiesta dancing career in 1990. The pandemic has challenged Petlow and the Old Spanish Days board of directors to react quickly and nimbly to ever-evolving conditions. Concerning this year’s special approach to Fiesta, Petlow says that producing a safe event containing the much-loved traditions was the challenge. “We went from planning a COVID Fiesta to a hybrid Fiesta once the restrictions were lifted.” The board of directors will continue to pivot in order “to put on the best celebration for our community and visitors.” Petlow also wants to bring reverence and history to her work as La Presidenta as this year’s theme — “Honoring Our Generations’’ — reflects this sensibility. “We are all where we are because of those who came before,” Petlow said. This year’s Spirit of Fiesta, 16-year-old Ysabella Yturralde, a junior at San Marcos High School, began dancing with the Linda Vega studio when she was 5 and knows that she will be a role model for young dancers who aspire to one day dance on the Mission steps.

Patricia Oreña as Saint Barbara

La Presidenta Stephanie Petlow flamenca spirit moves Yturralde as nothing else can. She loves designing her own elaborate costumes. An added bonus for Yturralde is how she and this year’s Junior Spirit, 9-year-old Savannah Hoover, have bonded. Both girls only have brothers and were eager to cultivate a sweet sisterhood. Like Yturralde, Hoover —a 3rd grader at Hollister School and student of Zermeño Dance Academy — began dancing at a young age. Hoover says that having an opportunity to bring joy to the audience is what most excites her about her role as Junior Spirit. She’s looking forward to fulfilling one of her dreams, which is to dance flamenco on the stone steps of the Old Mission. “I love flamenco,” Hoover says, “because it’s dramatic and allows me to express myself.” This year’s Saint Barbara has deep ties to Santa Barbara and Fiesta. Patricia Oreña traces her lineage to several of Santa Barbara’s founding families, names that include Pena, Calderon, Lugo, and De la Guerra. Oreña attended Wilson Ele-

mentary School and La Cumbre Junior High, graduated from Santa Barbara High, and then earned a degree at UCSB. She has many fond memories of Fiesta’s past, gathering with family to celebrate the highlight of every Santa Barbara summer. Representing Saint Barbara on behalf of the Native Daughters of the Golden West is a high honor for Oreña, and she plans to be very active this year, attending as many events as she can. Seeing young people carry on the Fiesta tradition is one thing she’s looking forward to and believes in, as does Petlow, honoring the generations who came before. La Presidenta Petlow sums it up beautifully by saying, “The spirit of Fiesta is all about coming together as a community …

Spirits of Fiesta Ysabella Yturralde and Savannah Hoover something we have all looked forward to for many months now.” Tradition and community. Past and present. For Petlow, Yturralde, Hoover, and Oreña, there is a recognition of being part of a lineage and a long line of women—mature and youthful — who have carried on, and will continue to carry on, the Fiesta spirit. n

ook at little Mary Marga-

ret Dominguez, sitting on that pony in 1942! When I asked how this photo shoot came to be, my mother told me that a man would walk his horse up and down the streets of Santa Barbara during Fiesta, asking families if they wanted their picture taken. Not only that, but he provided the costumes and horse and would take what, in this case, is one of my favorite photos ever. My mom lived on Santa Barbara Street when this picture was taken, but she would go on to live on Montecito, Cota, and De la Vina streets until my grandparents bought a home in San Roque. A seventh-generation Santa Barbaran, Mary attended Lincoln Elementary, S.B. Junior High, and S.B. High School. She married my

father, Jess Ortega, had three girls, and enjoyed a rewarding career at Planned Parenthood. While growing up here, Fiesta was my mom’s favorite time of year. Her mother, a k a my nana, had flamenco dresses made for my mom and her sister every year. As I grew up, I found that Fiesta also personified summer for my sisters and me. We’d go to La Placita at De la Guerra Plaza, eat raspadas (snow cones), and then go to the fair in the parking lot at SBCC—because along with the carnival rides, they had pony rides. Only now does it occur to me that maybe I got my equestrian skills from that cute little girl on the pony. —TO

hoot for the moon. The phrase is used often, but very few people have actually tried it. Today’s billionaires are spending fortunes breaking Earth’s atmosphere, and though Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster made it to space, even his vehicle never touched rubber to the moon’s dusty surface. July 31 marked the 50th anniversary of the Lunar Rover’s first deployment on the moon, manned by Commander David Scott and lunar-module pilot Jim Irwin on the historic Apollo 15 mission. But the rover’s 238,900mile journey began ever further back, years before, and in our own backyard at Delco, a former General Motors defense research laboratory in Goleta. The 17-month project cost nearly $38 million, and in that short time, the team of engineers designed, tested, and built four 460-pound, battery-powered, foldable Lunar Roving Vehicles. Three of them made trips to the moon, while one was kept on Earth for spare parts. The Apollo program was front and center of the era’s Space Race and the focus of the world’s attention. The American effort was headed by GM engineers Sam Romano and Ferenc Pavlics, whose contributions changed the direction of the lunar missions, allowing astronauts to explore the moon’s surface and collect samples in a way that wouldn’t have been possible before the rovers. Romano’s son, Tim Romano, remembers the fervor and energy of the Apollo program during the late ’60s and early ’70s. “It was a very dynamic time,” he said. “We’d watch the launches and landings with the backdrop of the Vietnam War.” While some men headed to the moon, Romano said, other “young kids” were at war. Tim was around 11 years old at the time his father was working on the project, a prime age for looking up at the stars and dreaming big. He remembers the whole development team gathering at the family’s Rancho San Antonio home to celebrate successful missions. “We had huge parties,” he said. “It was mayhem.” To this day, the Apollo rovers are the only vehicles to be driven on the moon. That is, until 2023, when NASA’s Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover (VIPER) will revitalize lunar exploration and make its first trek. The early ’70s lunar rover resembled an off-road

buggy, with woven-mesh metal tires specifically designed to resist sinking in the soft lunar soil. The tires worked perfectly; the soil was harder than expected and the treads left tracks only a half-inch deep. Delco’s former location is now a business park in Goleta, and in the middle of the park stands a memorial to the lunar rover project, complete with a set of tracks made by those innovative treads. The memorial was built in 2015, and Sam Romano’s daughter Laurie was instrumental in its design and completion. Kalie Grubb, a project manager with Arcadia Studios, helped Laurie with the landscape architecture. “She had a special connection to Delco,” Grubb said. “Her family had one of the wheels of the rover in their possession, so we were able to take measurements and get a feel for how we wanted to design the monument.”

SUNDAY DRIVE: Ferenc Pavlics and Sam Romano test a prototype of the Lunar Rover Vehicle.

Sam passed away while Laurie and Grubb were working on the project, “so it took on an even more significant meaning,” Grubb said. Laurie died of cancer last year. “The finished product is a testament to Laurie’s determination to see her vision realized on a project she dedicated many years to,” Grubb said. Tim Romano still works in town at Raytheon as an engineer, just like his dad — though he makes infrared sensors instead of moon buggies. He passes the memorial on his way to and from work, and on some days he stops by on his lunch break to remember the magic of the “moon days.” It is a special place for him, and his family, a bunch of “Cal Poly engineers,” he said, and the legacy of those who shot for the moon and made it. n

From Olive Oil to Skin Care C COURTESY

indy Makela, the matriarch of the Makela clan and their family business, is, as she puts it, “about as local as local can be.” Her husband, Craig Makela, can trace his family roots through 10 generations of Santa Barbarans, and the Goleta olive oil ranch on which the family currently resides was originally part of a Spanish land grant. Following in the footsteps of Craig’s greatgreat-grandfather John Goux — who grew Santa NEW VENTURE: The Makela family — from left to right, Craig and Cindy Makela and their son, Barbara’s first olive orchard Chad — has created an olive-oil-based collec— the Makela family tion of skin care products. founded the Santa Barbara Olive Company 30 years ago. They currently operate an olive business called California Coast Naturals and are now embarking on a new venture, Oleavicin, an olive-oil-based collection of skin care products designed to target shingles, cold sores, and bug bites. Their son, Chad, is helping lead the charge. “He grew up in this industry,” Cindy said. “I mean, he was literally doing trade shows in a car seat.” “We work really well together as a team,” she continued. “Of course, we have our ups and by Holly Rusch downs like any normal family would, but the three of us seem to have a pretty good dynamic and know whose lane is whose.” One challenge the family faced together came in 2009, when an employee at the Santa Barbara Olive Co. embezzled more than $500,000, forcing the Makelas into debt before eventually selling the company. The experience offered a lesson Cindy says she still lives by: “Get up every morning and just show up,” she said. “Just show up, even if you don’t know what you’re going to do once you get there, even if you don’t know how you’re going to solve your problems. Just show up, and Wednesday will become Thursday, and Thursday will become Friday, and things will move on.” Their new Oleavicin line of all-natural, FDA-approved salves and gels — which you can buy online and at Walmart stores all over the U.S. — are made from the same olives that have been in the family for decades and were created by searching for solutions to family medical issues. When son Craig developed a lingering cold sore in college, Cindy discovered that the leaves of the olive plant could be used as an herbal remedy. And when Cindy came down with shingles, she used another home treatment made with olive leaves. “So we said, ‘Oh, here we go again. The olives keep following us around,’ ” she laughed. The family’s history and knowledge of the business doesn’t go unappreciated in their community. “We’ve kind of become like grandma and grandpa mentors to all kinds of people,” Cindy said. She’s also a captain at the Humane Society and cares for a proverbial farm’s worth of pets: cats, chickens — one of which escaped and was subsequently captured during our interview — and a 105-year-old tortoise. “Every day is kind of an adventure,” she said. “That’s how all three of us look at it. We’ll take the plunge, and we’ll just try … we’re not afraid to fail. And if you’re not afraid to fail, then you have a really good chance of succeeding.” n

everal Olympic athletes have come out of Dos Pueblos High School — Doug Partie in men’s volleyball (1988 and ’92); Chris Segesman in men’s water polo (2004); Kiley Neushul, Sami Hill (2016), and Jamie Neushul (2021) in women’s water polo; and Stamatia Scarvelis, representing Greece, in the women’s hammer throw (2021). DP graduates Frankie Hill (Class of ’90) and Mike Santarossa (’93) had the dedication and skills that might have put them into the Olympics, if their activity had received the recognition it does today. They were skateboarders. Skateboarding has made its debut as an Olympic sport in Tokyo, part of a push by the powers-that-be to modernize the Games. During NBC’s featured telecasts of last week’s street competition, the athletes were leaping and grinding their boards down handrails over flights of stairs — something Hill was doing three decades ago on rails at the DP campus and UCSB. “I was trying to find the one thing I could do that no one else could,” said Hill. “I went down 14 stairs when nobody else did 10.” Hill said, “I’m very proud and happy it’s evolved to become a big sport, but I feel a little sad that skaters

Old-School Skateboarders Have Mixed Feelings About Sport’s Olympic Debut by John Zant

today can’t have that feeling of originality. It was all about being different. I used to get clothes out of the free box in Isla Vista and dress up in really bizarre getups.” The rebel mindset that prevailed among skateboarders of their era conjures mixed emotions about joining the Olympic mainstream. “We were outcasts,” Santarossa said. “I was one of four or five kids that rode skateboards in high school. Purists don’t see skateboarding as a sport but as an artistic lifestyle, a creative outlet. But there’s always been a competitive aspect.” Hill and Santarossa both were sponsored by Santa Barbara–based Powell Peralta Skateboards. “I was the first skateboarder to go pro just for making videos,” Hill said. “I always got nervous in contests, and Powell took me out of them.” Santarossa performed on tours in Europe, Japan, and Australia. But as waves of younger practitioners arrived on the scene, Santarossa said, “I couldn’t see continuing to throw myself down the hill.” Hill, 50, lives in Ventura and said he still hops on his skateboard a few times a month. Santarossa, 46, has returned to the sport in a fulfilling way. The Goleta

resident started giving lessons to youngsters and founded the Triumph Skateboarding Club. “When I help a kid get over the fear of dropping in a quarter-pipe, the joy I see is better than I felt doing my own,” he said. The kids can now harbor Olympic dreams, but that’s not Santarossa’s selling point. “If you’re doing it to get into the Olympics, it’s the wrong reason,” he said. “Skateboarding is about fun. [U.S. star] Nyjah Huston works hard, but he loves skateboarding because it’s fun to him.” Huston tried some nearly impossible tricks in the Tokyo street competition and finished out of the medals. Japan’s amazing Yuto Horigome was the winner, America’s Jagger Eaton took the bronze, and all of the competitors seemed to be enjoying themselves. “The enthusiasm of young skateboarders is pretty contagious,” observed Jim Fitzpatrick, a longtime skateboarding promoter who was a vice president of USA Skateboarding. “It’s as if they’re collaborating rather than competing.” Skateboarders had to overcome their own reluctance to become part of the Olympics, Fitzpatrick said. “It’s the epitome of an organized event. [Legendary skater] Tony Alva said, ‘The Olympics need skateboarding more than we need the Olympics.’ ” A more significant development is the proliferation of public skate parks. There are more than 4,000 such installations in the country, Fitzpatrick said, including Santa Barbara’s and Goleta’s. Leaders of the Carpinteria Skate Foundation are currently raising funds to build a skate park that has been approved for their community. DOWN TO THE WIRE: Santa Barbara’s three-time Olympic volleyball champion Karch Kiraly has been on a mission to bring the U.S. women’s indoor team its first gold medal. It’s boom or bust this week at Tokyo. Despite losing two starters to injury, Kiraly coached the women to a comeback victory over Italy to finish at the top of their group. They need to get through two more matches to play for the gold in one of the final Olympic events at 9:30 p.m. Saturday (Pacific Time). In water polo, the U.S. women hope to play for their third consecutive gold medal on Friday night. After suffering a rare loss to Hungary in group play, they thrashed the ROC (Russian Olympic Committee) 18-5, with Santa Barbara’s Paige Hauschild and Jamie Neushul both scoring goals.

Ranch to Table

Elizabeth Poett’s Agrarian Life Featured Weekly on Magnolia Network BY MATT KETTMANN

“Things were going really well,” said Poett, the seventh generation of the famed De la Guerra family to call the 14,000-acre ranch between Gaviota and Lompoc home. “I was busy.” But then, after four years of steadily growing her business, it stopped raining. “We really had to focus on our mother cows, which are born and raised and live on the ranch their entire lives — those are our genetics,” explained Poett, who is the daughter of this newspaper’s editor in chief and co-owner, Marianne Partridge. “We couldn’t keep extra cattle on the ranch. There just wasn’t enough space for me to be raising more animals.” She kept selling in Santa Barbara but had to cut out the entire L.A. market. Poett had alternatives up her sleeve, realizing that customers wanted to learn about life on the ranch, from how everything was grown to how it was prepared. “People who go to the farmers’ market are some of the most knowledgeable people about food,” she said, but even they needed more. “Everybody at the market was always wanting to come and see the ranch. People were yearning for a connection.” Instead of just delivering the ranch to others, she started inviting people up to Rancho San Julian for hands-on workshops and home-cooked meals. In 2017, Poett launched a company called The Ranch Table, building a website, recipe collection, and social media following to amplify the in-person gatherings. “My life has always been hosting,” said Poett. “Melding these worlds together was my dream. It is so inspiring to watch other people click, because we’ve all clicked at different times of our lives about food. This is what I want to share.”

The pandemic threw a temporary hitch in those experiences but also presented Poett with a new way to inspire those clicks: Starting this Friday, August 6, Poett and her family are the stars of Ranch to Table, a new six-episode television series produced by the Magnolia Network for the Discovery+ streaming service. “It’s been a whirlwind project that has been in the works for a really long time,” said Poett, explaining that, truth be told, the show was envisioned before the pandemic ever began. “I am still in shock that it’s going forward.” The pilot episode, which has been on the network for a couple of months now, features her telling the story of her family, of how she met Austin at a branding, and of what daily life is like, all while teaching us in a casual manner how to make Santa Maria–style tri-tip, fire-roasted salsa, and a blackberry-apple galette. “I am not a professional chef; I didn’t go to culinary school,” said Poett of how she became the star of what’s technically a cooking show. “I am just a rancher who loves food, loves to cook, and loves talking to people who grow food.” Magnolia is the lifestyle brand developed by Chip and Joanna Gaines, best-selling authors and former stars of the HGTV show Fixer Upper. “Yes, it’s a show about food, but it’s also a show about life on the ranch,” said Joanna in a promotional show about Ranch to Table. “It shows her as a mother, as a wife. It weaves in and out of her full story. It’s not just her at the island cooking three to four meals. It’s the intersection of food and the ranch and her family.” For Chip, the show reminds him of visiting his granddad’s ranch every summer as a child. He explained, “When you think about a woman like her and a family like theirs, from generation to generation over all the years, the stories that she tells and the things that that land has been through over what now equates to centuries is really spectacular.” That’s true. Jose De la Guerra took over the ranch back in 1837, and his descendants have been working it ever since. Jim Poett, Elizabeth’s father, grew up in Los Angeles, where his mother taught school, but would spend weekends up on the property and then attended nearby Midland School. He always wanted to live there, so when Marianne became pregnant with Elizabeth, they plotted a return to the ranch. “He bought cows the day after I was born. He still has the sales slip,” said Poett of her dad’s initial investment. “My poor mother was still in the hospital.” A few years later, Poett was “one of the first, if not the first, certified organic beef producer in California,”

recalled his daughter, whose childhood memories involve countless trips to butcher shops, including the old City Market in downtown Santa Barbara and Lazy Acres, which also bought Rancho San Julian beef way back when. But he eventually wanted to focus more on growing the herd and tightening their genetics, so he got out of the finished beef business. Elizabeth, meanwhile, left California for college and then worked in New York City and Los Angeles. “I went out and did things in the world, which was really important for me,” she said. “Then, slowly but surely, I started coming back here more and more.” When she did return, she wanted to showcase the ranch’s meat again and use the entire animal as much as possible. (I once bought a cow heart from her at the market — different story for another time.) “I always thought our final product was amazing, and that’s what we were always focusing on when we were thinking about our cows,” she said. “I wanted to be able to provide beef and cut out the middle man.”

FOOD & DRINK

rior to the drought that kicked off nearly a decade ago, Elizabeth Poett was building a beef empire. Every week, often with her two tiny kids in tow, she was selling Rancho San Julian meats — raised by her father, Jim Poett; and her husband, Austin Campbell — at three farmers’ markets in Santa Barbara as well as the big one in Santa Monica while supplying butcher shops across Los Angeles.

GENERATIONS OF HISTORY: Elizabeth Poett is the seventh generation of the De la Guerra family to tend to the land at Rancho San Julian, which is now the subject of a television series produced by Chip and Joanna Gaines.

It wasn’t, and still isn’t, easy. “It came with a million challenges,” she said of breaking into the markets in 2008. “Just getting the meat to the market was a lot. There’s just not infrastructure in California to really do small products like this.” But she persevered and built the Rancho San Julian brand, which remains a hot commodity at the farmers’ market. Now, Poett can thank TV for spreading her family story, which she doesn’t see as particularly unique in the grand scheme of America. “This is a real community and a lot of America are these small communities that are growing food,” she said of what she wants viewers to take from the series. “That was my hope: that people can see this and be inspired.”

Out of that relationship came Walson Holland, first crafted in a warehouse winery in Oxnard, but now based in a facility on Ojai’s Bryant Street that they fixed up last summer. Walson Holland produces about 800 cases of wine per year, sourced from Santa Barbara County vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills, Alisos Canyon, Happy Canyon, Ballard Canyon, and Santa Ynez Valley appellations as well as from Slide Hill Vineyard in the Edna Valley.   Here’s a sneak peak of the first release. Duvarita Vineyard Chardonnay 2019: Just two bar-

rels were made of this wine — one in fresh oak, one in neutral — and its blend of buttercream, sea salt, nectarine, and herb expertly show this unique vineyard, which sits just west of the Sta. Rita Hills near La Purisima Mission. “I really love that vineyard,” said Holland. “You get that tropical citrus but also that salinity and minerality hangs in there too.” Melange Blanc 2018: This blend of 40 percent grenache blanc and 20 percent each viognier, marsanne, and roussanne is quite tightly woven, especially considering the grapes came from the warmer McGinley Vineyard in Happy Canyon. “It’s kind of surprising that the whites do really well out there,” said Holland, who made sure to turn the roussanne clusters during the season to ensure even ripening.   Slide Hill Vineyard Grenache 2018: Though not included in the four-pack, this powerful bottling is super ripe with caramelized black fruit flavors, a bit more extracted than Holland’s preferred style. “It’s kind of a beast,” he admitted. Melange Rouge 2018: This blend of 54 percent syrah, 25 percent grenache, 9 percent graciano, 6 percent petite sirah, and 6 percent viognier hails from six vineyards, from Enda Valley to Happy Canyon. It’s savory, peppery, and pleasantly rugged.  Duvarita Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019: Holland included 100 percent of the stems in this wholecluster fermentation, which is very popular in New Zealand. “That’s tricky for your first time,” he said of that choice, which can impart strong herbal character to a wine. “There was a lot of spicy jalapeño during fermentation for a while, but the fruit came and I feel like it’s integrated nicely.”

winemaking. Antonio Riva built a winery on what’s now Old Creek Ranch more than 100 years ago, and, in the 1980s, Adam Tolmach planted a vineyard at The Ojai Vineyard, where he’s now growing fascinating hybrid grapes to deal with the region’s pesty Pierce’s disease. A smattering of vineyards popped up in the ensuing years — Roll Ranch getting the most attention, thanks largely to Tolmach — as well as homey wineries such as Casa Barranca and Boccali. Things got even more serious with the 2016 opening of Topa Mountain Winery, whose comfortable outdoor spread and solid wines put Ojai on the map as a true tasting destination.  The latest brand to join the fray is Walson Holland, a partnership between winemaker Benjamin Holland and vineyard owners Lisa Wallmark and Jonas Svensson, an entrepreneur and investor in various ventures originally from Sweden. (“Walson” combines the couple’s last names.) With plans to deliver the inaugural wines in the fall — a pinot noir, chardonnay, white Rhône, and red Rhône blend — the brand is now taking sign-ups for its allocation list, which will grant access to an annual release.  Holland’s path to the cellar starts in his home state of Georgia, which he left in 2004 to hit up South Lake Tahoe for a ski season. He wound up staying for eight years, working as a bartender in Heavenly Village and then helping a friend’s dad run a higher-end restaurant in Reno. That’s where he learned to build a wine list, began being certified by the Court of Master Sommeliers, and decided to embark on a life of wine.     His first stop was at the legendary pinot noir producer Kosta Browne in Sebastopol in 2016, and then he headed down to New Zealand, working on pinot noir and aromatic whites at Amisfield in Central Otago. The next year, Holland moved south with his daughter and wife, who now works as an oncology nurse at Kaiser in Ventura. He worked for a year with Sine Qua Non, the Oak View–based cult brand founded by Manfred and Elaine Krankl that makes some of the most sought-after wines on the planet. He continues to use what he learned at Sine Qua Non in the cellar today — not necessarily the style of Krankl’s notoriously powerful and brawny wines, “but how thoughtful, meticulous, and clean his process is,” said Holland.   Along the way, Holland met Svensson, who’d planted about an acre of grapes on his Ojai property. They started making a red field blend (from the vineyard’s syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, and carignan) and rosé (from the sangiovese, nebbiolo, and sauvignon blanc) together under the Walson Farms name and selling it in Ojai shops such as Point de Chêne and the restaurants Ojai Rôtie and Nocciola.

SONZAI:

JAPANTOWN SANTA BARBARA The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation hosted an online premiere screening and Q&A on Friday, July 30, with the filmmakers of Sonzai: Japantown Santa Barbara, a documentary exploring the cultural and archaeological history of the thriving Japanese American community that lived on Canon Perdido Street in pre-war Santa Barbara. The film tells the story of Nihonmachi — a densely populated strip where the El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic park now stands, which in the 1920s held boardinghouses, bathhouses, cleaners, restaurants, pool halls, and grocery stores. The district was also home to more than 500 Japanese Americans in the area prior to WWII, when nearly all of its inhabitants were removed and taken to internment camps. Sonzai filmmakers Barre Fong and Koji Ozawa interview researchers who analyzed artifacts found in an archeological dig that took place prior to El Presidio being rebuilt in the 1960s, along with members of the Nihonmachi community who describe their experiences before and after Pearl Harbor, in the documentary that was shown as part of the 12th Annual Asian American Film Series. —Ryan P. Cruz

INDY CONVENIENCE STORE WOMAN BOOK CLUB BY SAYAKA MURATA Convenience Store Woman, best-selling Japanese author Sayaka Murata’s first novel to be translated into English, is a compact and adept examination of social pressures in Japan that also resonates deeply across cultures and language. Murata’s protagonist, Keiko Furukura, is a social misfit who finds herself reborn at age 18 when she begins working at the Hiiromachi Station Smile Mart convenience store. With the help of corporate training manuals (and lots of copying others), she masters the social demands of her controlled environment and passes for a “normal person” with a perfectly timed “Irasshaimase!” (Welcome!) or “Hai!” (Yes!). Now 36, and unburdened with the desire to move up, or move on, Keiko is in a sublime stasis, the single constant in the living organism of the 24-hour convenience store that casts off coworkers, managers, and customers like so many dead cells. As she proudly describes, “I feel like I’m as

much a part of the store as the magazine racks or the coffee machine.” The serenity of Keiko’s synthetic environment is threatened when her younger sister has a baby and the pressure on her to be more ambitious or to settle down and marry increases. Things are further complicated when Shirahara, a young “freeter” (slacker), takes a job at the store and eventually inserts himself in her life. While walking through these pages in Keiko’s shoes, readers are guaranteed not only a deeper understanding of “konbini” (convenience store) culture but also a humorous and critical look at modern Japanese society in a way that is pertinent to each of our experiences. At once pathetic and enviable, Keiko becomes an indelible hero for social outcasts everywhere through her quiet refusal to acquiesce to the pressures around her. —Devon Cahill, Santa Barbara Public Library

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Filmmaker Federico Fellini had an

unexpected definition of happiness. He said it was “being able to speak the truth without hurting anyone.” I suspect you will have abundant access to that kind of happiness in the coming weeks, Aries. I’ll go even further: You will have extra power to speak the truth in ways that heal and uplift people. My advice to you, therefore, is to celebrate and indulge your ability. Be bold in expressing the fullness of what’s interesting to you.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “Look for a long time at what pleases

you, and longer still at what pains you,” wrote the novelist Colette. What?! Was she making a perverse joke? That’s wicked advice, and I hope you adopt it only on rare occasions. In fact, the exact opposite is the healthy way to live — especially for you in the coming weeks. Look at what pains you, yes. Don’t lose sight of what your problems and wounds are. But please, for the sake of your dreams, for the benefit of your spiritual and psychological health, look longer at what pleases you, energizes you, and inspires you.

initially feel unsettling. I urge you to welcome these revelations with gratitude. They will help you tune in to the nuances of what it means to be radically authentic. They will boost your confidence in the rightness of the path you’ve chosen for yourself. I’m hoping they may even show you which of your fears are irrelevant. Be hungry for these extraordinary teachings.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The next two months will be a pro-

pitious time for you and your intimate allies to grow closer by harnessing the power of your imaginations. I urge you to be inventive in dreaming up ways to educate and entertain each other. Seek frisky adventures together that will delight you. Here’s a poem by Vyacheslav Ivanov that I hope will stimulate you: “We are two flames in a midnight forest. We are two meteors that fly at night, a two-pointed arrow of one fate. We are two steeds whose bridle is held by one hand. We are two eyes of a single gaze, two quivering wings of one dream, two-voiced lips of single mysteries. We are two arms of a single cross.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo spiritual author Don Miguel

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you deepen your affection for

butterflies and hummingbirds, I will love it. If you decide you want the dragonfly or bumblebee or lark to be your spirit creature, I will approve. You almost always benefit from cultivating relationships with swift, nimble, and lively influences — and that’s especially true these days. So give yourself full permission to experiment with the superpower of playful curiosity. You’re most likely to thrive when you’re zipping around in quest of zesty ripples and sprightly rhythms.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Life is showing you truths about

what you are not, what you don’t need, and what you shouldn’t strive for. That’s auspicious, although it may

Ruiz urges us not to take anything personally. He says that if someone treats us disrespectfully, it’s almost certainly because they are suffering from psychological wounds that make them act in vulgar, insensitive ways. Their attacks have little to do with what’s true about us. I agree with him and will add this important caveat. Even if you refrain from taking such abuses personally, it doesn’t mean you should tolerate them. It doesn’t mean you should keep that person in your life or allow them to bully you in the future. I suspect these are important themes for you to contemplate right now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “People who feel deeply, live

deeply, and love deeply are destined to suffer deeply,” writes poet Juansen Dizon. To that romanticized,

WEEK OF AUGUST 5

juvenile nonsense, I say: NO! WRONG! People who feel and live and love deeply are more emotionally intelligent than folks who live on the surface — and are therefore less fragile. The deep ones are likely to be psychologically adept; they have skills at liberating themselves from the smothering crush of their problems. The deep ones also have access to rich spiritual resources that ensure their suffering is a source of transformative teaching — and rarely a cause of defeat. Have you guessed that I’m describing you as you will be in the coming weeks?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Professor of psychology Ethan

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Poet Ezra Pound wrote a letter to novel-

ist James Joyce that included the following passage: “You are fucking with my head, and so far I’ve been enjoying it. Where is the crime?” I bring this up, Capricorn, because I believe the coming weeks will be prime time for you to engage with interesting souls who fuck with your head in enjoyable ways. You need a friendly jolt or two: a series of galvanizing prods; dialogues that catalyze you to try new ways of thinking and seeing; lively exchanges that inspire you to experiment.

AQUARIUS

Kross tells us there can be healthy, creative forms of envy. “Just as hunger tells us we need to eat,” he writes, “the feeling of envy could show us what is missing from our lives that really matters to us.” The trick is to not interpret envy as a negative emotion, but to see it as useful information that shows us what we want. In my astrological opinion, that’s a valuable practice for you to deploy in the coming days. So pay close attention to the twinges of envy that pop into your awareness. Harness that volatile stuff to motivate yourself as you make plans to get the very experience or reward you envy.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Blogger Mandukhai Munkhbaatar

SAGITTARIUS

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I gave my readers homework, asking

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Poet Walt Whitman bragged that

he was “large.” He said, “I contain multitudes.” One critic compared him to “a whole continent with its waters, with its trees, with its animals.” Responding to Whitman, Sagittarian poet Gertrud Kolmar uttered an equally grandiose boast. “I too am a continent,” she wrote. “I contain mountains never-reached, scrubland unpenetrated, pond bay, river-delta, saltlicking coast-tongue.” That’s how I’m imagining you these days, dear Sagittarius: as unexplored territory; as frontier land teeming with undiscovered mysteries. I love how expansive you are as you open your mind and heart to new self-definitions. I love how you’re willing to risk being unknowable for a while as you wander out in the direction of the future.

offers advice on the arts of intimate communion. “Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face,” she tells us. “Do not fall in love with the idea of being in love.” She also wants you to know that it’s best for your long-term health and happiness if you don’t seek cozy involvement with a person who is afraid of your madness, or with someone who, after you fight, disappears and refuses to talk. I approve of all these suggestions. Any others you would add? It’s a favorable phase to get clearer about the qualities of people you want and don’t want as your allies.

PISCES them to answer the question, “What is your favorite rule to break?” In response, Laura Grolla sent these thoughts: “My favorite rule to break is an unwritten one: that we must all stress and strive for excellence. I have come up with a stress-busting mantra, ‘It is OK to be OK.’ In my OKness, I have discovered the subtle frontier of contentment, which is vast and largely unexplored. OKness allows me not to compete for attention, but rather to pay attention to others. I love OKness for the humor and deep, renewing sleep it has generated. Best of all, OKness allows me to be happily aging rather than anxiously hot.” I bring this to your attention, Pisces, because I think the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to investigate and embody the relaxing mysteries of OKness.
