Sex and Violence RALLY FOR ROE: In response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, nearly 600 people who believe in the right to an abortion streamed onto the Santa Barbara courthouse lawn for a Friday afternoon rally.
Anti-Abortion Ruling Sets Loose Protests and Planning for Women’s Health Care by Jean Yamamura, with Jun Starkey Photos by Ingrid Bostrom
ex and violence combined at the Supreme Court when abortion and guns were the focus of two decisions this past week: one telling states to decide how to regulate abortion, and the other telling states to keep their hands off guns in public. The same day, June 24, nearly 600 people who believe in the right to an abortion streamed onto the Santa Barbara courthouse lawn with passing cars honking support during a Friday afternoon rally. One young woman, who stood stockstill among the crowd shouting, “I AM SO ANGRY,” echoed the feelings heard nationwide from hundreds of thousands of protesters. Over at Santa Barbara’s Girls Inc., young people were gathered for summer activities, skills development, and camaraderie, all with the aim of fulfilling the program’s goal to make girls strong, smart, and bold. Program Director Jen Faust said the teens among them were well aware of what was up that day: “Young women, teens, they’ve lived with these rights all these years, and they’re asking, ‘What’s the next thing that’s going to be taken from us?’ ” They were talking about how to get to a position where they could become a Supreme Court justice, said Faust: “We’re trying to raise hope, keep them safe and healthy, and give them the skills to speak up for themselves, to build a society that stands up for girls and young women.” According to the Guttmacher Institute, which researches reproductive health policy, 26 states are likely to impose or have imposed abortion bans, joining countries such as Iraq, Sierra Leone, Egypt, and the Philippines where women’s reproductive rights do not exist. The backlash against the Supreme Court’s decision is having some unintended consequences. For young women thinking about scholarships and colleges, media outlets like Teen Vogue are warning them to look before they jump.
Free tuition may be offered at universities in Texas, for instance, but it’s also a state with one of the most repressive laws in the nation, banning abortion after conception; women’s health clinics, which can dispense contraceptives, are struggling to stay open across Texas. In his decision, Alito cited a long history of laws against abortion, among them the onetime Chief Justice of the King’s Bench, Englishman Matthew Hale, who called abortion a “great crime” when of a moving child in the womb. Many critics have raised the fact that the Massachusetts witch trials of the late 17th century were modeled after Hale’s 1662 sentencing of two elderly widows to death for witchcraft, and it was Hale who ruled that husbands could legally rape their wives. Yet Alito’s claim that abortion was prohibited from the “earliest days of common law to 1973” was not so cut and dried, said Patricia Cohen, an emerita professor of history at UC Santa Barbara. While he opined that laws outlawing abortion in the 19th century came out of an overwhelming concern for fetal personhood, Cohen said the public outrage was more due to the deaths of many young women killed during botched abortions, deaths that were much publicized by newspapers in the late 1800s. In the states passing subsequent laws that made abortion illegal, Cohen pointed out that in the few times a person was charged, juries often failed to convict or handed down light sentences; those who were convicted served for months, not years. “It wasn’t seen as great or wonderful,” Cohen said. “It was never a right. It was just off the radar.” “Today’s ruling is the first time the Supreme Court has taken away previously established rights covering millions of Americans,” said Santa Barbara County Supervisor and attorney Joan Hartmann. “And the courts won’t stop here,” she warned. “Clarence Thomas added a concurrent opinion that other major

precedents establishing rights to basic things like birth control (Griswold) and marriage equality (Obergefell) are on the table for dismantling. This ruling is about asserting who has control over your future — and it is especially meant to control and punish women, people of color, poor people, and other marginalized communities.” Among the least visible individuals in the fallout from the Dobbs v. Jackson decision are transgender men who retain their uterus and ovaries. Attorney Kristin Flickinger, who heads Pacific Pride Foundation, noted, “Up to 30 percent of trans men have unintended pregnancies.” She also pointed out that Thomas’s opinion directly contradicts Alito, who limited his ruling to abortion. “It’s very clear. This is not a standalone judgment,” Flickinger said. “Roe and Casey are part of a line of decisions that guarantee rights based on the privacy doctrine, penumbral rights, because the word ‘privacy’ is not in the Constitution, and when you take one of these building blocks out of this legacy, the others can fall very easily.” Legal scholars will be dissecting Dobbs for decades to come, but in the immediate now, for California, as many as 1.3 million women could seek abortion care coming from a neighboring state such as Arizona, which bans abortion after 15 weeks. One state away, Idaho will make it a felony after six weeks, and Utah may include abortion through medication as a felony, with a $10,000 fine and up to 15 years in prison. Mifepristone — known as RU 486 — a medication that can end a pregnancy up to 70 days after conception, was recently authorized to be prescribed through telemedicine by the Food and Drug Administration. Jenna Tosh, who leads the tri counties’ branch of Planned Parenthood, cautioned that the drug was not so easily obtained; in Santa Barbara, for instance, the clinic dispenses it only after an in-person visit. As well, 19 states
and the Supremes require a clinician to be in the room when the medication is taken, the Guttmacher Institute found; two states have prohibited it after a certain number of weeks. Getting an abortion in any case has never been a simple process, especially for women who lack funds or support. Laury Oaks, head of the Feminist Studies Department at UC Santa Barbara, said, “There are barriers like travel, childcare, taking time off of work. And they just keep going higher and higher.” Pathways for care, however, are forming “by people doing this work for a long time who know how to do it,” according to Oaks, though plans are made quietly given the violence that abortion provokes in opponents. Underground Railroad–type networks have organized to quickly move women from their home states to clinics elsewhere. California is adding a constitutional amendment for abortion rights to the fall ballot, $200 million in funding for access to reproductive health care, and a dozen bills in the Legislature are already headed for Governor Newsom’s desk. Monique Limón, Santa Barbara’s state senator, said the bills all had a great chance of being passed. “[They] will move us from relying on the federal government to ensuring that our states have these protections in place,” she said, especially when “bordering states may not be providing care and may leave a lot of people without vital services.” “Abortion is still safe and legal in California,” reminded Supervisor Hartmann, who said she was “deeply saddened and mad as hell” over Alito’s decision. “We must ensure that California will continue to be a beacon of hope for pregnant people in need of basic health care, including safe abortion care ... for the thousands of people who will need to come here because they had these rights stripped away with this reprehensible ruling.” n
Supremes Expand Gun Rights in Aftermath of Uvalde and Buffalo by Nick Welsh hen Santa Barbara Sheriff Bill Brown was asked about last week’s Supreme Court ruling that gives gun owners new and expanded rights to carry concealed weapons, his thoughts turned to a road-rage incident that took place in 2005. It started out, he said, with the typical exchange of salutary F-bombs between two motorists on Highway 101 near Buellton. It concluded in a deadly climax. When the dust settled, Wayne Shaw, a 49-yearold painting contractor from the Santa Ynez Valley, lay dead on the ground, and Louis Arthur Calvin, a 46-year-old card dealer who had just moved to the Valley from Las Vegas, was sentenced to more than 30 years behind bars. Calvin, it turns out, had a concealed weapons permit issued by the state of Nevada. Shaw — said to have a hair-trigger temper with what he considered bad drivers — reportedly had at least one vodka tonic too many. When Calvin pulled over into the parking lot of a Buellton shopping center, Shaw reportedly followed. More F-bombs ensued. According to one witness, Shaw got out and punched Calvin in the face through his open window. But Calvin just happened to have a loaded .22 caliber derringer. He pulled it out and shot Shaw in the neck. Shaw would not survive the single blast. “It’s an awesome responsibility to carry a firearm in public,” Brown commented. “People might not be as trained as they should be and get into situations where they become overconfident.” Instead of driving away or calling the police as he could have, Brown said, Calvin opted to stand his ground against an intoxicated aggressor. Aside from the obvious casualties — Shaw and Calvin — Brown said, the shooting visited lasting devastation upon the two men’s families. Although Calvin had multiple concealed weapons permits at the time, Brown noted, he did not have one issued by Santa Barbara County. Therefore, it was not legal. The issuance of such permits is part of Brown’s job. And he has a reputation for being relatively stingy in issuing them, compared to most of the other 57 sheriffs in California. Currently, there are 95 such permits in Santa Barbara County. (Typically, they’re held by judges, retired cops, reserve law enforcement
officers, hospital personnel authorized to transport opioids, private investigators, jewelry salespeople, gun shop owners, and ranchers.) In Fresno, by contrast, there are closer to 15,000; in Kern County, there are 6,000. According to estimates from Brown’s office, he issues about five new permits and rejects seven to 10 applications each year. “Not a lot,” he said. To issue such a permit, state law — until the court’s ruling last week — required Brown to declare the applicants to be of “good moral character, and demonstrate a serious and credible threat of violence against them or their immediate family.” What constitutes a “credible threat” and “good cause” is totally up to the sheriff of each county. Court watchers have described last week’s ruling as the most significant expansion of rights to gun owners since the court’s landmark ruling in 2008 that determined people were constitutionally entitled to arm themselves — acting as individuals in their own homes — for purposes of self-protection. Until 2008, the right to bear arms had been rooted exclusively in the constitutional context of maintaining “a well-regulated militia.” Last week’s ruling expands the scope of that 2008 ruling, now giving citizens — for the first time — the right to arm themselves outside of their homes for purposes of self-protection. By a 6-3 majority, the Supreme Court ruled that otherwise lawabiding applicants no longer have to demonstrate “good cause” or “special needs.” Justice Clarence Thomas, writing the majority opinion, stated, “We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need.” This opinion involved a New York State law that, for more than 100 years, required the demonstration of “good cause.” Seven states with combined populations of 84 million people, including California, regulate the dispensation of concealed weapons permits in this fashion. “Obviously, we are going to comply with the Supreme Court ruling,” Sheriff Brown stated. “There’s an old adage,” he said, “that things are never as good or as bad as you think they’re going to be. It’s going to be a mixed bag.” By that, Brown stated, it was certain that more people would qualify for concealed weapons permits in Santa CONT’D ON PAGE 15

Thousands Flock to Summer Solstice Photos by Ingrid Bostrom
anta Barbara’s Summer Solstice celebration returned in full force after a two-year pandemic pause with an updated parade route that brought a new, refreshing feel to tourists and locals packed along Santa Barbara Street on Saturday and to the thousands who flocked to Alameda Park for the weekend festivities. This year’s solstice celebration — which had the theme of “Shine” — featured a full-fledged return with a six-week workshop leading up to the event, complete with creative floats, brightly costumed dancers, and performers of all varieties preparing for the all new parade route. Many spectators enjoyed the new location, an adjustment made to accommodate the new dining parklets that have turned State Street into a car-free pedestrian promenade, and thousands packed picnic chairs and blankets along Santa Barbara Street, where the parade took on a different backdrop with the mountains, the Santa Barbara Courthouse, the S.B. Historical Museum, and the Presidio all along the way. For a full gallery of Ingrid Bostrom’s photos of some of the weekend’s brightest moments, see —Ryan P. Cruz independent.com.
NEWS BRIEFS COMMUNITY EMM A SPEN C ER
Artist Miguel Rodriguez (pictured) has installed a new mural titled “Los Voladores de Papantla” and three renovated murals at Eastside Neighborhood Park. A blessing ceremony was held on 6/22, “designed to open up the space” and act as a “ceremonial way of welcoming people to the space,” said Ricardo Venegas, Parks and Recreation community center director. Rodriguez incorporated different elements of symbols from a diverse group of Indigenous cultures, such as Chumash, Aztec, Maya, Yaqui, and Totonac. Rodriguez said the redesign took roughly three months with help from individuals completing community service hours.

The City Council affirmed this week that the State Street pedestrian promenade isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. But it also set in motion efforts to ensure parklets are clean, portable, and conform to city codes and aesthetics. An ad hoc committee will study the pedestrian-cyclist relationship along the downtown corridor as well as future parade routes.
BUSINESS The 29-acre former QAD campus was reportedly sold for an estimated $104 million to the University of California in a deal finalized last week, according to a deed filed with the county assessor’s office. QAD, a software company that vacated the campus when its operations went to a “virtual-first model,” had put the property on the market in May. The two buildings situated at the end of Innovation Place in Summerland include more than 122,000 square feet of fully operational office space. UCSB has not provided official comment on the sale.
COURTS & CRIME Billionaire landlord and sometime S.B. resident Geoffrey Palmer tentatively settled a class-action lawsuit alleging massive security deposit fraud by agreeing to pay $12.5 million to 19,000 of his former tenants. Palmer reportedly owns 15,000 apartments throughout the L.A. area. He was accused of violating the state’s security deposit return law on a wholesale basis, failing to provide tenants with a written accouxnting of deductions drawn and in other instances of double billing. Assuming the settlement is approved in court by a judge on 7/18, tenants are expected to receive about $500-$600 apiece.

Proposed Ban on New Hotels Falls
Locally Owned and Operated
hree weeks ago, on June 7, Santa Barbara City Council first discussed an urgency ordinance that would temporarily ban new hotels — at least while the city tackled the pressing issue of proving it could meet the stateGOLETA allocation of 8,000 units for the next housing element cycle — and voted Ave 5757 Hollister 5-2 to move forward, directing city staff to return with a final draft on June 28. But when council returned for final approval on Tuesday, the ordinance failed on a 4-3 vote failing to get five votes needed to pass an emergency order. Councilmembers Oscar Gutierrez, Kristen Sneddon, Eric Friedman, and Meagan Harmon supported the ordinance, but it ultimately failed when Councilmember Mike Jordan joined Mayor Randy Rowse and Councilmember Alejandra Gutierrez in opposition.

he Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors heard a report Tuesday about the county’s Emergency Alert and Warning Systems, and why information does not always reach the public effectively. Emergency alerts are sent after collaboration between different authorities, typically the Sheriff ’s Department and local fire departments. This often takes time for all parties to properly assess the situation, according to Kelly Hubbard, director of the Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management (OEM). In an emergency, the public is alerted through news broadcasts, social media, the county call center, and first responders knocking on doors in possible evacuation areas.

Councilmembers voting against the ordinance said it would be mostly symbolic, since it would exclude hotels that had already submitted applications; there are currently more than 700 hotel rooms from at least 21 different hotel projects in the city development pipeline. Councilmember Alejandra Gutierrez said she understood the urgency of the housing crisis but felt that the ordinance was too rushed for her to be comfortable moving forward. “I don’t think you’re looking at the forest through the trees here,” said Councilmember Oscar Gutierrez, who voted in support of the hotel ban to offset a severe housing need in the city. “We’re already in a bad place when it comes to housing; just wait a few more months.”
government, has resulted in the most confusion among residents, while ReadySBC alerts, Nixle, and local or private alert systems seem to be most effective. Hubbard noted that ReadySBC alerts, which residents must subscribe to individually, are the clearest in communication. WEA warnings are delivered through cell towers that have differing coverage and signal strengths. Depending on the individual’s provider, a message may or may not be received. This explains why, during this month’s Bridge Fire, some residents fairly close to the area reported not receiving any alerts. During the Bridge Fire earlier this month, Hubbard reported: 905 ReadySBC alerts were sent, with a 76 percent success rate. Through door-knocking, 257 homes were alerted with a 55 percent success rate. The rate of success for WEA is unknown, though OEM received 17 complaints from people who did not receive an alert.

NEWS BRIEFS CONT’D FROM P. 9 COURTS & CRIME S.B. County faces possible sanctions over notices sent to Montecito homeowners over right-ofway encroachments on East Mountain Drive. On 6/22, 11 properties near the Hot Springs trailhead received letters advising them to remove the illegal impediments to public parking or face hundreds of dollars in daily fines and fees. The county was already under an injunction not to take any action within a half mile of the trailhead, a 5/6 ruling that Judge Thomas Anderle upheld on 6/28. Anderle wrote he was also inclined to find the county in contempt, potentially putting them on the hook for the opposition’s attorney fees; that argument will be heard on 6/27.
The second week of the triple-murder trial of John Dungan, 31, continued 6/27, with the prosecution calling on two witnesses. Sober living clinician Dr. Courtney Tracy testified that she decided to call the authorities upon seeing an alarming note from her client Dungan that said, “I am too sensitive for this reality,” fearing for the safety of him and others around him. The prosecution also called Ricardo Flores, Dungan’s friend since high school, and displayed a series of text messages in which Dungan asked his friend to relay some messages to other former classmates. When Flores refused, Dungan sent one last text saying, “Have a nice life Ricardo. Thanks for being a good friend.” Dungan’s attorney argued that “dramatic, over-the-top” messages and notes were normal for Dungan. The trial continues 6/30. CONT’D ON PAGE 12

Following an investigation by S.B.

Macklin has denied all charges and pleaded not guilty during an arraignment on 6/17. Macklin could face as many as 20 years in prison, as his arson charge carries a threeto five-year enhancement due to injuries sustained by two firefighters, though an initial charge of causing a fire during a state emergency was dropped.

GREENLIGHT FOR RED FLAG: Rep. Salud Carbajal’s provision to fund “red flag” laws is part of the bipartisan gun safety package signed into law by President Joe Biden over the weekend.
n what was a rare pinch-me moment for Congressmember Salud Carbajal, President Joe Biden signed into law a compromise gun control package measure—the first one to pass in the past 30 years—that included “red flag” language inspired by a 2014 mass shooting in Isla Vista that Carbajal initially introduced in the House earlier this year. “I thank God the stars were aligned and all the parts came together,” Carbajal exclaimed. “It’s not a panacea, but it’s going to save lives.” Specifically, the bill signed by the president sets aside $750 million to defray costs incurred by state and local governments for implementing what’s alternately known as Gun Violence Restraining Order or an Extreme Risk Restraining Order, or ERPO for short. This measure allows family members, law enforcement officers, co-workers, and teachers to petition the court to temporarily seize the firearms of individuals judicially determined to pose a serious potential risk. “$750 million!” exclaimed Carbajal. “That’s a quarter less than a billion. That can do a lot of good.” The price tag for the total package of reforms signed by Biden is $13 billion. Of that, the most goes to enhanced mental health funding and increased schoolhouse security and fortification against mass shooters. Many states have already adopted red flag law rulings, but their utility remains a mixed bag, mostly because so few people—and law enforcement agencies—are aware of their existence or how to utilize them. Carbajal says the funding will help states that have such laws better implement them and entice states that don’t by reducing costs. The measure contains no orders or mandates, 12

he stressed. California adopted its first red flag law—sponsored by then Assemblymember Das Williams and State Senator HannahBeth Jackson—in response to Elliot Rodger’s May 2014 rampage through Isla Vista that left seven people dead. Gun violence experts at the University of California Davis estimate red flag laws have prevented 58 mass shootings since then by getting firearms out of the hands of potentially violent individuals. Santa Barbara County has been among the most aggressive of California’s 58 counties in deploying the law. In the first year, Santa Barbara pursued 20 gun-violence restraining orders. By 2020, that number had jumped to 851. County Sheriff Bill Brown said the law offered a balance approach to temporarily disarm individuals who posed a potential risk to themselves or others without having to make the case they required to be placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold. Like Carbajal, Brown stressed the measure was “not a cure-all,” noting that his deputies had, in fact, conducted a welfare check on Rodger shortly before his killing spree but were impressed by his demeanor. “There are people out there who can be chameleon-like in affect,” Brown stated, “and convince people that everything’s all right.” Carbajal was quick to state the gun violence bill signed into law—however historic — still leaves much to be desired. Among other things, he said, assault weapons should be banned outright, and large ammo clips should be strictly regulated. “It’s not perfect,” he said, “but I hope we don’t have to wait another 30 years for the next one.” —Nick Welsh

Sheriff’s Office and Behavioral Wellness Get Biggest Chunks of County’s $1.4B Budget
NOMINATE NEW FRONTIERS! Best Health Food/Nutrition Store Best Gourmet Grocer Best Salad Bar CELL PLAN: According to budget documents, part of the Sheriff’s Office’s $182.2 million budget will go toward a remodel on the Main Jail. by Ryan P. Cruz f the recently approved $1.41 billion budget is any indication of the county’s priorities, then law enforcement and mental health are top dogs in Santa Barbara County, where the Sheriff ’s Office and Behavioral Wellness (BeWell) have accounted for a combined $346 million in allocated funds for 2022-23 fiscal year. The departments make up two of the top three on the county’s list of big budget items, with the Sheriff ’s Office allocated $182.2 million this year, and $163.9 million earmarked for BeWell; Public Works is the second highest with $166 million. BeWell’s budget grew by nearly $16 million—in keeping with a statewide trend of increased funding for mental health and recovery programs. “Yes, we are absolutely glad about the increased focus on the value of mental health and wellbeing,” said Toni Navarro, BeWell’s new director, who was hired at the end of 2021. “However, the significant challenge is the severe behavioral health workforce shortage that has ballooned in the past two years.” Counties all across the state are experiencing a similar shortage, she said. Despite the worker shortage — and a recent data breach that led to at least 600 personal records being compromised—BeWell has expanded its services and exceeded many of the goals set for 2021-2022. A recent success has been the collaboration with the Sheriff ’s Office and other emergency services to form “co-response” teams that handled 43 percent of more than 5,000 mental health crisis calls last year. The county is hoping to expand the co-response service hours from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. The Santa Barbara Sheriff ’s Office has seen some successes of its own. The Northern Branch Jail opened in Santa Maria, and Sheriff Brown has spearheaded Project Opioid to fight the growing fentanyl epidemic. But its budget has also grown exponen-
tially. When Sheriff Bill Brown first took over in 2007, the entire departmental budget was a modest $80 million. Now the cost of custodial operations alone has surpassed $80 million. The Sheriff ’s Office has also experienced staff shortages leading to overtime pay going $6 million over budget as the remaining deputies are forced to take on extra shifts, and custody staff is now split between two operating facilities. The jails have also struggled with COVID19 outbreaks. A staff that is stretched thin also may have contributed to the department’s struggle to enforce public health mandates in 2021, where at least 108 unvaccinated patrol deputies refused to submit to weekly tests. The department most recently failed to meet its goal of having at least 30 percent of law enforcement deputies—and 85 percent of custody deputies — attend at least one advanced Crisis Intervention Training course. So far, 10.5 percent of 286 patrol deputies have attended, and none of the county’s 271 custody deputies have attended any training. Now, with things opening up and a new $182.2 million operating budget, the Sheriff ’s Office is looking to catch up on a few things that got lost in the shuffle. According to budget documents, the county has plans to begin a remodel on the Main Jail—which has fallen into disrepair with several units unusable—and outfit all patrol deputies with bodycams. Additional plans include working with the Community Corrections Partnership to hire for the new position of “Discharge Planning Coordinator” to rethink how to handle the jail population. Overall the county’s $1.41 budget is $60 million more than the previous year and was unanimously adopted by the County Board of Supervisors on June 14.

ith Santa Barbara County COVID cases up 35 percent from what they were two weeks ago—but hospitalizations down 15 percent—it might seem premature to host an hour-long after-the-fact dissection of how the county Emergency Operation Management Office of Emergency Management fared during the pandemic. Based on a state-mandated “After-Action Report” prepared by a private consultant and presented to the county supervisors on June 28, the short answer is this: The dedication and professionalism of county staff—2,200 employees who chipped in one way or the other—cannot be overstated. The public outreach effort—with no fewer than 98 press briefings—came in for serious praise, too. Likewise for the county’s early focus on economic recovery and chasing after state and federal emergency funding. The consultants found the county’s basic command structure kept shifting and reorganizing throughout the duration of the crisis, leading to confusion, duplication of effort, and inefficiencies. The biggest problem identified, however, was employee burnout, which took a serious mentalhealth toll on those affected and under-
mined the response effectiveness. The consultant noted that Santa Barbara has gone through several protracted emergency response fire drills in recent years—the 2015 Refugio Oil Spill and the 43-day long Thomas Fire and 1/9 Debris Flow disaster. As devastating as they were, they paled in comparison to COVID. For the Office of Emergency Services, the pandemic was an all-consuming event for 443 days, during which more than 500,000 hours of staff time was expended. During the Thomas Fire/Debris Flow, it was only 18,904 hours. The county supervisors allotted an hour to hash out the details of the report, but the consultants raced through their presentation to allow time for questions. Strikingly, there were exceedingly few, and not one member of the public showed up to comment. This report was focused more on the challenges and lessons learned by the Department of Emergency Services Office of Emergency Management. The Department of Public Health will release the results of its “After Event” analysis sometime this fall. —Nick Welsh
Food Distribution Sites in Santa Barbara
t’s estimated that between 10 million and 15 million people experience food insecurity in America, with about 6 million of those being children. Between 2016 and 2019, the Cottage Hospital Center for Population Health estimated that 21 percent of the adult population of Santa Barbara was food insecure. Nationally and locally, several sites and organizations have worked to offer food, meals, and produce to this population of Santa Barbara. Groups like the People’s Pantry or Isla Vista Community Fridge have physical containers out in public where food can be taken by anyone who needs it.
For anyone under 18, the organization No Kid Hungry has also created a text prompt which can provide the closest site giving out free meals. Text “FOOD” to 304304, and provide an address when the automatic response asks for one. The program will then send the address of the closest sites providing meals for people under 18. The Food Bank of Santa Barbara County also has lists at foodbanksbc.org/preparedfood/ in English and Spanish for food sites in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Isla Vista, Santa Maria, Carpinteria, Lompoc, Solvang, Buellton, and Guadalupe. —Jun Starkey

Barbara County. But he didn’t anticipate a deluge. “We will still continue to do background checks; we won’t be issuing licenses willy-nilly,” he said. “I don’t expect a huge increase in the numbers, but it’s possible that some problems and issues will come up as a result somewhere.” Justice Thomas cited studies that purport to show there’s no discernable difference in the level of gun violence between communities with the more restrictive “may-issue” laws just struck down and the less restrictive “shall issue” rules still allowed. Justice Stephen Breyer, who wrote the dissenting opinion, countered with a raft of other studies that claim to show a 10.6 percent higher homicide rate associated in areas with the more permissive requirements for concealed carry permits and a 29 percent higher rate of workplace homicides. But more broadly, Breyer argued, it’s all about gun ownership rates. For states with high gun ownership rates, he cited studies showing cops are three times more likely to get shot in the line of duty and four times more likely to shoot someone fatally. Justice Samuel Alito, who sided with Thomas, was dubious. In his concurring opinion, Alito asked, “Will a person bent on carrying out a mass shooting be stopped if he knows that it is illegal to carry a handgun outside the home?” But even with the new ruling in effect, Brown said local authorities will still be allowed to use the “moral character” clause to screen concealed weapons permit applicants. Translated into plain English, Brown said, this involves a criminal background check to screen out applicants who’ve been convicted of crimes. If they don’t reside in Santa Barbara County, Santa Barbara must be their place of business. Applicants are required to submit three letters of reference, undergo a generalized background check, and subject themselves for a psychological screening. “They have to go to the department’s psychologist to be interviewed,” Brown said. In Sacramento, Governor Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta wasted no time denouncing the decision, and State Senator Anthony Portantino, a Democrat from Glendale, introduced a new bill that would expand the scope of such background checks as well as expanding the definition of “sensitive spaces.” The Thomas ruling recognizes sensitive spaces as being off-limits. Already, the list includes government office buildings, schools, and picket lines. It will likely expand to include movie theaters, shopping malls, sporting arenas, and churches, among other venues.

SUPREMES EXPAND GUN RIGHTS CONT’D FROM P. 7
Sheriff Bill Brown
In addition, Sheriff Brown said he expects to see private businesses weighing in as they do in states with more liberal concealed weapons policies, posting signs out front declaring their retail spaces gun-free zones. State Senator Monique Limón and Assemblymember Steve Bennett—who represent Santa Barbara in the statehouse—both expressed support for the Portantino measure. It’s no accident, Limón said, that California has the strictest gun regulations in the nation and one of the lowest rates of gun violence. The legislature’s window of opportunity, however, is exceedingly tight. “If we’re to succeed, this has to be done by August 31,” she said. Twelve bills are currently making their way through California’s legislature to address gun violence. It remains uncertain what impact—if any—the Supreme Court ruling could have on the constitutionality of these efforts. In his opinion, Justice Thomas ruled that government is no longer permitted to balance the relative risk and benefits — known as a “means-end” test — of gun legislation. For a bill to pass constitutional muster, it must be historically rooted in the time that the Second Amendment was passed — 1791 — or the 14th Amendment—in 1868. That, in fact, is now the sole determining criteria. “The government must justify its regulation by demonstrating that it is consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation,” declared Thomas. In his dissent, Justice Breyer argued that the historical record on any abiding social concern is inherently complex and contradictory. Lower court justices, he argued, will find their resources sorely strained ferreting out the historical facts and weighing the evidence. He himself amassed 700 years’ worth of historical cases to demonstrate what he contended was clear evidence that “proper cause” restrictions meet Thomas’s new standard. Thomas and the majority were not persuaded. Breyer also questioned to what extent laws based in the past could possibly contemplate regulations for guns that can now be manufactured by 3-D printers. Santa Barbara’s Sheriff Brown said gun safety defies simple “cookie-cutter solutions.” Different communities, he said have different demographics, different population densities, and different safety challenges. Santa Barbara County, he noted, is the fourth lowest in the nation when it comes to gun deaths. “We’re still one of the safest places in the country,” he said. “For the past 15 years, I stuck to the policy I did because it was in the best interest of the county and the residents who n lived here.” JUNE 30, 2022

Ebby’s Organic Farm Pushed Out?
Goleta Farmers Claim New Property Owner Overcharged for Water, Causing Thousands in Losses by Jun Starkey Goleta family farm is downsizing after 15 years, giving up about eight acres after a new property owner began charging thousands of dollars a month for water. The farm, Ebby’s Organic Farm — named after farmer Mike Iniguez’s eldest daughter — has sold produce at the Goleta and Santa Barbara Farmers Markets, the Isla Vista Co-Op, and donated produce to organizations that provide free food, like Food not Bombs Isla Vista, Veggie Rescue, and the Isla Vista Community Fridge. Ebby’s Organic Farm was originally composed of one five-acre plot on 236 Armas Canyon Road, which Iniguez has leased for 40 years, and another plot of about eight acres on 295 Ellwood Canyon Road, which he and his niece Lorena have been leasing for about 15 years. In late March of this year, the farm received a $2,400 water bill from the Ellwood Canyon property. Normally, Mike and Lorena said they pay about $450 a month for water in the summer months, when they are using the most water. The farm budgets about $4,000 a year total for water.
“When I got that bill, I knew I had to go,” Mike said.

PeriPheral Neuropathy aNd diabetes WarNiNG! Santa Barbara, CA - Diabetes along with age, smoking, exposure to chemotherapy, post surgical and motor vehicle accidents are all risk factors for peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes is the largest cohort, making up nearly 60% of all peripheral neuropathy cases. Among diabetics, up to 50% have measurable evidence of peripheral neuropathy but no symptoms. Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is the most common long term complication of Diabetes. This can progress from sensory complications to leg/foot ulcers and ultimately gangrene and amputation. Nerve fibers affected with neuropathy include large nerve fibers which are principally associated with numbness and small nerve fibers seen with pain and burning symptoms.
In order to effectively treat your neuropathy, three factors must be determined. 1. What is the underlying cause? 2. How much nerve damage has been sustained?* 3. How much treatment will your condition require? Don’t Hesitate to Act Now! We can objectively measure the severity of deficit in both small and large nerve fibers prior to start of care.
The main problem is that your doctor has told you to just live with the problem or try the drugs which you don’t like taking because they make you feel uncomfortable. There is now a facility right here in Santa Barbara that offers you new hope without taking those endless drugs with serious side effects. (see the special neuropathy severity consultation at the end of this article).
Nearly 60% of Peripheral Neuropahty patients are Diabetics. ref: The foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy. June 2018
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems.
The treatment to increase blood flow utilizes electronic cell signaling delivering modulating energy wavelengths at both low and middle frequencies. The signaling improves cell-to-cell communication among small nerve fibers.
This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which will cause the nerves to begin to slowly degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow.
The cell signaling therapy is like watering a tree. The treatment will allow the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding water to a tree and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper.
As you can see in Figure 1, as the blood vessels that surround the nerves become diseased they shrivel up which causes the nerves to not receive the nutrients to continue to survive. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause you to have balance problems, pain, numbness, tingling, burning, and many additional symptoms.
The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. Large nerve fiber = numbness • Small nerve fiber = pain

obituaries E. Pia Woolverton
Mark Roger Chapman
2/10/1933 - 3/28/2022
10/17/1949 - 6/20/2022
Pia was born in Lucerne, Switzerland on February 10, 1933 attending schools there and finishing with a degree in administration at the age of 18. Finding life in Switzerland too provincial for her tastes, she boarded the Queen Elizabeth bound for New York, arriving on December 27, 1952, and took a job at Swiss Air in the Public Relations department. In 1954, she headed to the west coast, driving cross country and landing in Los Angeles. There she worked at the regional Swiss Air office for a time until leaving to become the administrative assistant to Paul Helms, the founder of Helms Bakery. Starting in the mid 70’s, she worked as the administrative assistant to the director of the Huntington Library and Art Gallery in San Marino, initiating their early fundraising efforts which made possible an enormous refurbishment of the institution. When she moved to Santa Barbara in 1989, she began working with the Trust for Historic Preservation, helping to organize their fundraising, resulting in the restoration of the Presidio buildings as they stand today. She also worked with the Mental Health Association and was a longtime supporter of the Natural History Museum. An avid traveler, who visited all the continents except Antarctica, Pia made an extended visit throughout China in 1986 to participate in a study of the Silk Road, for which she wrote a presentation. She returned again in the 1990’s to visit the many friends she made during the first trip. She passed away on March 28, 2022 at her home and in her sleep and is survived by her son Peter, two grandchildren, Marcella and Nico, and two great grandchildren, Arthur and Rhys. 18

Mark Roger Chapman passed away peacefully at home with his wife by his side on the morning of June 20, 2022. Mark was born on October 17, 1949, in North Hollywood, the third child born to Roger and Cornelia Chapman. His family moved to Santa Barbara in 1954 and so began his lifelong love of the Santa Barbara area. A graduate of San Marcos high school, he then attended a year of college in Hawaii. In his early years if he wasn’t in school, he could always be found at the beach surfing. Mark’s family made regular trips to England in the summer to visit his mother’s family, and as a result, his interest and love of the greater world developed. During the course of his life Mark traveled to many countries including Africa, Western Europe and Central America, just to name a few. He was a lover of music, especially ” southern rock and the British Invasion “. Live concerts were one of his great joys. He attended, among others, a Beatles concert, many Rolling Stones, Elton John, and Faces shows. He was always happy to entertain everyone with his stories, interesting adventures, and quick wit. For a period of time Mark owned a surf shop on Mason Street and developed a body surfing tool which sadly came before its time. His main livelihood was driving. He drove big rigs and heavy equipment for the Santa Barbara transfer station, but his real pride was his many years of employment with the Santa Barbara trolley

Traditional Family Values?
ou ask me about traditional family values, like the Bible says? I’ll tell you. A 14-year-old girl in South Sudan has a baby. The baby is too big, her pelvis is too small; she has horrible post-partum bleeding. One in 10 women die in childbirth in her world. I cannot control the bleeding. I ask her husband if we can send her for a hysterectomy to save her life. Men are the decision-makers in this society. Her husband has eight wives. He purchased the girl for 30 heads of cattle two years ago. He tells me that without her uterus, she is of no value to him and just another mouth to feed in a time where food is scarce. Let her die. So she dies. You ask me about traditional family values, like the Bible says? I’ll tell you. A 16-year-old girl in the Middle East comes to the ER with her father for lower abdominal pain. I want to do a pregnancy test. It is a very conservative Muslim community. One of the nurses pulls me aside. He tells me not to do the pregnancy test. If it is positive, the unmarried adolescent girl will be killed by her family for the shame she had brought. Pregnancy without marriage. Her chances of survival are better if we do not know her pregnancy status. He tells me that she will find someone in secret to handle her symptoms if they are pregnancy related. We do not test her for pregnancy. Does she have an ectopic pregnancy? We don’t know. She maybe survives. You ask me about traditional family values, like the Bible says? I’ll tell you. A 23-year-old woman is date-raped in Georgia. She was drugged and does not know if a condom was used. She knows the man and does not want to press criminal charges. I respect her wishes. I test her and treat her for sexually transmitted infections and prescribe for her “Plan B” to prevent pregnancy. The pharmacist calls me and says he will not fill her prescription because his Christian faith prevents him from doing so. Freedom of religion. I call in the prescription to another pharmacy, which agrees to fill it. She survives. It is not my place to tell a woman whether or not she should have an abortion. I am only a physician. It is, however, my responsibility to instruct her where she can go to get a safe abortion, if that is
her decision for whatever the moral, psychological, emotional, social, clinical, or private none-of-mybusiness complex reasons that have brought her to this choice as an option. Let’s keep church out of health care. Let’s keep church out of government. Be cautious, my countrymen, about romanticizing traditional family values, like the Bible says. It is far safer for our daughters, girlfriends, wives, friends, mothers, and neighbors to practice good, evidencebased medicine and allow safe options. The Supreme Court is not opening the door for states to prevent abortion. It is allowing states to criminalize safe abortions. I stand with Planned Parenthood. I have seen traditional, family, Bible values. And I choose health and safety.

Yes to State Standards
s a sometime contributor to the Independent, I was terribly disappointed to review reactions to Roe online — all the opinions were negative. Can any reasonable person believe these are the only opinions in our community? I for one applaud the reversal. I believe late-term abortions are wrong. I believe this is not just an issue of a woman’s right to her body. There are, of course, exceptions, but when decisions lead to pregnancy, there are consequences; it becomes a matter of the woman’s body and a child’s life. I believe federalism has been undermined too often by federal overreach, and states should be free to set their standards. I doubt much will change in California, and for that I mourn the unnecessary death of thousands of unborn children. But we have gone way too far in our nation making too many choices into inalienable rights. My hat is off to SCOTUS and the wisdom of our founders to insist on checks to the tyranny of the majority. —Jim Mannoia, Carpinteria

obituaries Bill Shields
7/21/1930 - 6/18/2022
On June 18, 2022, Bill Shields, beloved teacher, coach, husband, father, grandfather and friend passed away at the age of 92 years old. Bill was born July 21, 1930 in Newport, New York. In 1935, his family journeyed west looking for a better life. They settled in Pasadena, California. Bill did not have a lot of success as a Pasadena High School basketball player, so he decided he wanted to try amateur boxing. He was trained by the legendary blind boxing coach, Canto Robledo, in Robeledo’s backyard gym in Pasadena. During Bill’s boxing tenure, he competed in both lightweight and welterweight division tournaments. Bill won weight division championships in 4 tournaments. He was a finalist in every boxing tournament he entered! Bill was also awarded the Golden Gloves of Pasadena. During the Korean War, he was drafted into the Army in 1951. He served in General Ridgway’s Honor Guard, stationed in Tokyo, Japan. While there, he continued his boxing career as a member of the Army’s boxing team. When Bill returned from Japan, he used his GI Bill, graduated from UCSB in 1957 and earned a Master’s Degree from USC in 1962. (Bill was a lifelong Trojan fan. Fight On!). He was hired by the Goleta School District in 1957, where he taught 6th grade at Cathedral Oaks, drove the school bus and developed a boys 20

and girls after school athletic program. He went on to teach at Foothill, Kellogg, Hollister and La Patera Elementary Schools. He organized the Valley Elementary League, where boys and girls teams, coached by fellow teachers and parents, competed against one another on Saturday mornings in Goleta. Bill’s school won championships in flag football, basketball, softball, volleyball and track. After 19 years, when the Valley League was no longer needed, Bill organized and coached noon leagues at Hollister and La Patera schools. What was unique was that these teams were all co-ed. He was truly a visionary coach by promoting girls to participate in competitive sports 15 years before the implementation of Title IX. His young athletes remember his love of sports and his caring attitude toward athletes and students of every ability level. Sportsmanship, fair play and citizenship were emphasized in his classrooms and on the field and court. Bill always said one of the highlights of his life was marrying his fellow teacher at Foothill Elementary School, Diana Grassfield. They enjoyed a marriage of laughs and good times for 40 years before her untimely death in 2006. Bill was recognized for his coaching and teaching by being inducted into the Santa Barbara Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002. He was also proud of the 3 PTA Honorary Awards presented to him by three different schools. His lifelong enjoyment of participating in competitive sports led him to play on various championship city and Goleta Boys Club basketball and softball teams. He played

tennis into his late eighties. As Bill always said “All in all, it was a pretty good run.“ Bill is survived by his son, Greg Shields of San Diego, Jennifer Frederic (Peter) of Paso Robles, his cherished granddaughters, Vanessa Shields, Jayne Bruno-Ramsay, Carolyn Bruno, Ann Bruno and his bonus grandsons, Jon Frederic and Michael Frederic. A special thank you to Esmeralda Bravo, Bill’s amazing caregiver of the last 3 year. Even when his memories were robbed by Alzheimer’s disease, he knew she was his friend and a “good gal”. Esmeralda, you will always be an honorary Shields. From Greg and Jenny: Our father was a visionary when it came to flag football. He truly believed that children should not be playing tackle football until they were more mature physically and mentally. He adhered to the belief that children should learn the fundamentals of football, to fall in love and respect the sport. He didn’t support children being burdened with the apprehension of the “next big hit”. In lieu of a memorial service, we have established the Bill Shields Scholarship Fund with Santa Barbara Friday Night Lights Youth Flag Football. His legacy will live on for generations on and off the field. If possible, please make a donation to his scholarship so that the children of Santa Barbara can continue his dedication and passion for the game. Thank you. gofund.me/f4da3826
3/14/1926 - 5/27/2022
Catherine Fox, 96, of Santa Barbara, CA, passed away Friday, May 27, 2022, at Serenity House in Santa Barbara. Catherine, the daughter of Anton and Anna (Wert) Duppong, was born in Glen Ullin, ND on March 14, 1926. She grew up with six sisters and four brothers on the family farm just outside of Glen Ullin. After graduation at age 16, Catherine taught grades 1-8 in a one room school house for a year before moving to Bismarck, ND where she began working at the North Dakota State Capitol Building. It was there she met John Charles Fox, a World War II U.S. Army veteran who had returned to Bismarck in 1945 after completing four years of distinguished service in the battlefields of Europe. John and Catherine married on November 25, 1946 and made their home in Bismarck, where they raised three children. They enjoyed 37 wonderful years together before John’s passing in 1983. Catherine’s dedication to hard work was evident in her accomplished professional career. She served as Secretary to the Director of the Motor Carrier Division of the Public Service Commission, from 1956 to 1965. From 1965 to 1968, she held the position of Assistant to the Executive Secretary of the North Dakota Education Association. In 1968, Catherine was appointed Deputy Clerk of the North Dakota Supreme Court, a position she held until her retirement in 1985. After retirement, Catherine relocated to Santa Barbara, CA
to be closer to family. Catherine especially loved the time spent with her children and grandchildren, all of whom were uniquely precious to her. She also enjoyed playing cards with her large circle of friends including bridge with the Queen of Hearts, and canasta with her special group of friends. Her needlepoint canvas pieces are fine works of art enjoyed by many. Cross country trips visiting with her siblings were always on the schedule. Catherine was an active member of the Town & Country Women’s Club. Catherine was friendly, kind and gracious to everyone she met and her bright smile warmed the hearts of all those around her. She meant so much to so many: a devoted wife and mother, an adoring grandmother, a loving sister, a dedicated colleague, and a supportive friend. Her elegant charm, caring nature, energetic spirit, and clever wit will be deeply missed but will live on in the memories and hearts of everyone who was lucky enough to have known and loved her. We can truly say the world is a better place because she was here. Catherine is survived by her children Joan (Robert) Bricher and Charles (Cheryl) Fox; grandchildren John (Kate) Bricher, Beau Bricher, Thomas (Fabio) Fox, Cassandra (Jon) Langerud, and Jenna (Don) Anderson; sister Esther Karch; and eight great-grandchildren: Adora, Phineas, Rhys and Ezra Bricher; Daisy, Ole, Maggie and Luci Langerud. She was preceded in death by her husband John; son Thomas Patrick Fox; parents Anton and Anna; sisters Emma Braun, Sr. Yvonne Duppong, Eva Schirado, Helene Duppong, Teresa Clark, and Mary Graeme; and brothers Carl, Albert, Clarence and Edwin Duppong. Catherine will rest with Tom at the Goleta Cemetery in Santa Barbara, CA. Memorial and celebration events will be announced at a later date.

eighties. He had a life long love of the water, whether he was playing in the creeks of Virginia as a young boy, lifeguarding at Virginia Beach, swimming in the warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico at his Eugene “Gene” Marshall Cage, 89, passed away peacefully in the early morning of May 23, 2022 after a day spent surrounded by his family. Gene was born on August 17, 1932, in Lynchburg, Virginia and spent his childhood in South Boston, VA. While attending college, at age 19, he was deployed to the demilitarized zone during the Korean War and quickly rose to the rank of staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, before being honorably discharged as the war was ending nearly two years later. Upon his return, Gene worked in Virginia Beach for the summer where he met college student, and future wife, Mary Fleming. Charmed by her charisma and great sense of humor, Gene followed Mary to her hometown of Madison, Wisconsin where he returned to college and completed his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Wisconsin. After starting their lives together in Madison, Gene and Mary pursued careers in the government. Gene joined the Department of Justice which took their family on a journey to Kansas, Illinois, Michigan, Florida, and California before he and Mary eventually retired to Phoenix, Arizona and took extended trips to Santa Barbara, CA to be near family. Gene enjoyed running,
Florida home, or taking an early morning run along the Pacific Coast. He passed this passion on to his kids and grandkids; teaching them all to swim at an early age and fostering a love of the ocean and marine life. Gene was also known for telling a funny story; sometimes laughing so hard he could barely finish the punch line! Gene is predeceased by his wife of 53 years, Mary Fleming Cage. He is survived by his son Michael Cage and wife Lynne of Santa Barbara, his daughter Catherine Cage of Arroyo Grande, CA, his grandchildren Kelsie and John Michael Cage, his sister-in-law Barbara Cage of Halifax, VA as well as many nieces and nephews. Per Gene’s wishes, a private memorial and celebration of life will be held at the National Memorial Cemetery in Cave Creek, Arizona at a future date. The family would like to thank the team at Oak Cottage who helped care for Gene in his later years. In lieu of flowers, donations in remembrance of Gene may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, California Central Coast Chapter.
Sieglinde (Linda) Marschall of Santa Barbara passed away on June 21, 2022, as a result of end-stage Alzheimer’s disease. She was 86 years old. Sieglinde grew up in Remscheid, Germany, where her father played contrabass in the symphony orchestra and her mother taught piano. She met her future husband, Ekkehard Marschall, while still in high school. After graduation she studied chemistry at a small college in Isny, near Lake Constance, and then worked as a chemical technician in Hannover for several years while Ekkehard finished his Doctor of Engineering degree. Sieglinde and Ekkehard married in Hannover and had two children, Jochen and Anne, born two years apart. In 1969, Ekkehard was offered a position in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UC Santa Barbara, and the family moved to Isla Vista, first to an apartment and then into a house on Trigo Road, where they lived until 1986, when a final move took them to the sunnier climate of upper Turnpike and a larger yard for gardening. When the kids were young, Sieglinde volunteered at Isla Vista Elementary School, and then as the kids got older, she worked for a series of aircraft companies at Santa Barbara Airport including Tracor Aviation, Lucas Aviation, and Santa Barbara Aerospace. In retirement, she volunteered for many years at the Goleta Valley Public Library and spent many hours knitting and donating beanies for newborns. Sieglinde loved classical
music, working in the garden, and was an accomplished basket weaver. She was a kind, gentle person and a great mother and wife. Sieglinde is survived by her husband of 61 years, Ekkehard; her son Jochen (Michelle) and daughter Anne; her grandchildren Sarah (Kyle) and Evan; and her younger sister Bärbel. The family thanks the staff of the Compass Rose Memory Care unit at Mariposa for taking such good care of Sieglinde during the last two years, and Central Coast Hospice for their compassion and guidance during her final days.

Madeline Dahm Prioritizes Life in the Work/Life Balance
GARAGE FREEDOM: After battling breast cancer at 24 years old, Madeline Dahm makes sure that surfing and playing guitar are as important as work in her life.
or many people, it takes the majority of their lives to
realize that work isn’t what it’s all about. Science writer Madeline “Maddy” Dahm got her wake-up call early, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 24. A freelance science writer juggling multiple projects at the time, Dahm said she was very stressed out even prior to the diagnosis. “I basically had to quit all my jobs right away and transition fully into treatment, chemotherapy, radiation, mastectomy, and the whole nine yards of treatment.” When she was well enough to get ready to rebuild her life and begin looking for work again, her priorities were firmly in place. “I know that I need to be passionate about what I do; that’s really important to me,” she thought. “But also, I’m not going to waste really too much more of my life time that I have.”
Science Writer, Musician, and Surfer Aims for Symmetry Reflecting on a “normal work week,” Dahm said, “you get pretty burnt out by the weekend, and then you’re like, ‘Okay, I’ll do this stuff I love during the weekend.’ But by the time you get there, you don’t really have that much motivation anymore. You just kind of want to chill.” Rather than put the things she loves — which include surfing and playing with her band, Queentide — on the back burner, Dahm decided to only commit to a four-day work week this time around. “Having that one extra day a week enabled me to take time to go to doctor’s appointments and all these follow-up things that I had to do.”
Now 27 and healthy by all indications, Dahm continues to limit her work time in favor of flexibility. “Surfing and music are always kind of wiggling their way into my everyday experience in Santa Barbara,” she laughed. “I’m kind of constantly running in between surfing and work, and I love being able to just kind of bolt off and also work remotely for a while.” With an in-demand skill set — making scientific concepts understandable to the general public — having flexibility in her work doesn’t mean it’s not interesting and meaningful. A UCSB graduate who studied physical geography with an emphasis in hydrology, Dahm spent a portion of the COVID lockdown time working as a writer for CIMMYT (cimmyt .org), the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, in Mexico City. Her work there revolved around plant genetics and research, agronomy research, and “really fascinating conservation agriculture techniques intended for use for the global south.” Now living back in Santa Barbara, Dahm had multiple job opportunities and parlayed her experience into working as a science writer for a large agriculture food systems research company in town. Prioritizing the work-life balance is still key, she says. Her boyfriend was with her in Mexico, but now he’s at UC Santa Cruz finishing up his studies, and a flexible job allows her to visit him for weeks at a time. Her workspace reflects this balance as well: She and her housemates have set up a creative coworking space/band practice spot/surfboard storage unit — all within the confines of their garage.

ven prior to the pandemic, Amy
Fitzgerald Tripp and her husband always had a workspace in their home. “We both are designers and went to art school, so we’ve always had a love for having a space to work and make things,” said Tripp. “It really went into daily use when the pandemic started.” A Santa Barbara–based architect for the past 15 years, Tripp has worked on a variety of projects, including The Biltmore, San Ysidro Ranch, and high-end retail stores for brands like Fendi, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton. She was on maternity leave after having her first child last year when she was recruited to work for the Housing & Hospitality division of Page (pagethink .com), a full-service design, architecture, and engineering firm with projects and offices around the world. She works primarily remotely from her home office, with what she describes as a hybrid childcare system setup. Mondays through Wednesdays, their daughter goes to a small home daycare, which Tripp said they feel very fortunate to have found. “We really wanted our daughter to have the experience of interacting with other kids, especially since she’s getting older —eight months old—and moving around more.” Then on Thursdays and Fridays, her daughter is at home with a nanny to help during Tripp’s work hours.

hen the pandemic sent everyone
During the course of his full-time remote work, there’s been a lot of change in staff, and he also changed teams, moving from Amazon Personalization to Amazon Music. He said he’s found that working remotely with people he knew before the pandemic is easier than trying to get to know new colleagues virtually. At this point, the future of his physical office location is up in the air. “There’s a desire from Amazon for people to be in the office a bit more, once or twice a week, or something like that, but a lot of that’s being left up to individual teams and organizations to figure out what works best for them,” said Bordofsky. Amazon Engineer Adapts to His current team, for example, is split between Los Angeles and Irvine, so Working from Home even if he did move back, he’s not sure which location he’d move to. “The general guidance has been “It’s been really nice for me, especially at that I think they want us to be close enough the beginning of the pandemic,” said Bor- to our offices to be able to go in on a day’s dofsky. “It was really nice just to live with notice or something like that,” he said. “But other people at the time when, on a day I haven’t seen too much about the actual where I didn’t leave my apartment to go enforcement or the encouragement of that. grocery shopping, I sometimes wouldn’t see We’re all still virtual, pretty much.” another person’s face other than for team Eventually, he would like to be on a team lunches or things like that.” He gets along where they are all located in roughly the well with the family, and having the dogs same area and can go into the office once around is also good company. or twice a week. “I like being in the office a His work team mostly communicates little bit in terms of just working with people; through Slack or on calls with larger groups. it makes it easier.

he headquarters of QAD — a 28-acre hilltop
in Summerland, with shimmering views of the Pacific — is one of the most visually spectacular workplaces in Santa Barbara County, perhaps only rivaled by UCSB and SBCC, but without the parking problems. Yet, despite the dreamy locale, employees “voted with their feet not to come back to the office,” said QAD Chief People Officer Laura Stepp. In a move that punctuates how permanently the pandemic has disrupted the way we work, the QAD campus is now for sale, with the software company’s approximately 150 local employees working primarily from home. QAD was founded by UCSB grad Pamela M. Lop-
headquarters is in Summerland, we are very global by nature; we were used to being on phone calls with people all around the world to make things happen. In that sense, going virtual for COVID was a smallish step. The thing that changed was that we used to operate around localized offices as kind of hubs; now we really went distributed. Once we went through that door, it wasn’t going to be simple to come back.
How does this apply to other companies? I think all companies are considering one of two choices. One is you really bring people back, you expect them to be there or set up deadlines and mandates, and you really pull them back. You’re seeing some of the news covering that. Or you go other direction, and you say, ‘You know Q&A with the Summerland-Based the what, we’re going to operate as remote first,’ and then figure out how to build in collaboCompany’s Chief People Officer ration and in-person engagement around ker in 1979, after her future husband, Karl, asked her to that. help find manufacturing software for his leather sanWe went with the second strategy, for a couple of dal company (that became Deckers, another success good reasons.

Stepp — who graciously spoke the expense of a large, beautiful facility when no one’s to me on the phone from Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, in it. It doesn’t make any financial sense.

Coming out of talking about how we’re going to operate our business.

But the offices were open for quite some How does that work for QAD?

We also did some allowances and stipends to support our employees surveys, of course, that were global. Although our who are now permanently potentially working from
home, etc.? All those things take a different shape in different geographies. So it’s quite complex.
There’s this whole cohort of kids (class of 2020-21) who are in their first real jobs. They’ve never really worked in an office or never met their co-workers in the way that most people do. Is there anything you’re doing at QAD to address that culture? You’re pointing to an issue that’s probably on my mind the most. We’re all aware that you learn a lot from working alongside others. What’s interesting is this generation is also the kids who have gone through school virtually, and even before COVID hit, from an entertainment perspective, or a bonding perspective, these kids lived in more of a digital online world than their parents certainly did. So I’m kind of watchful and curious about it. I’ve done some reading that would say that actually the kids find it less of an issue than the older generation does; they’re used to operating this way with each other. So they find the gap’s not as far. Now, that being said, the truth is that in a virtual world, in order to sit next to somebody or learn from somebody, you have to make an appointment. You have to be on a call shadowing; you have to set up a meeting to be a part of that. So I wouldn’t say we’ve developed a full strategy yet. But absolutely, we’ve been thinking about ways to facilitate mentoring. With the move toward virtual first, will you have an office? Although we’re moving out of our big fancy HQ facility, we are going to select and secure a smaller-scale local space primarily for collaboration. One of the concepts we’re using is rethinking the office as a place that you go to. The office is a place where groups get together to do periodic collaboration, whether it be planning, training, or maybe it’s just a couple days a quarter where your team gets together to bond. There’s lots of reasons why now you can intentionally get together. But that means we redesign our spaces for that purpose, rather than to come sit at a desk. We’re in the middle of reshaping
our office strategy so that we have different versions of the offices. Santa Barbara will shift because what we have right now is very much a come-sit-in-your-office complex. The new space will be one that’s designed around collaborative meetings and engagements. We haven’t given up completely on a local space to bring people together.
Come see one of the most exceptional displays of minerals and gems ever presented in our region.
I would imagine that virtual workplaces will be a very robust topic for your HR colleagues everywhere. I’ve been in HR now 25, going on 30 years, and I think it’s a grand experiment, right? Some of us have picked the left fork in the road. And some of us picked the right fork in the road. They both have pros and cons. They both have their difficulties, and we’ll see how the world shapes up. But I think people will self-select into the work environments that they prefer. We’re all competing for talent. We’re making bets on which work environment we think will attract our particular workforces. I think it’s just a once-in-a-lifetime experience and none of us know the answer. Speaking of talent, for Santa Barbara, do you become open to hiring people all over the place? Virtual first, not just for Santa Barbara, but for all of our locations around the globe, very much opens up where you can hire talent. So for example, we have space in Mexico City, but we’re building an engineering team down there, and we’re really hiring them wherever we find them. If you’re gonna go virtual first, you want to take advantage of one of the big pros, which is that your potential talent market for hiring is much larger. In the war for talent, which is definitely what we’re in, there’s not enough people to do the jobs. This is a definite advantage. We do find people will specifically pursue job opportunities with us because of our election to go virtual, for sure. But we’ve also had people who have said, “I really like to be in the office at least three or four days a week with other people. So it’s not for me,” and they’ve just opted out. We’ve absolutely seen that happen in our recruiting process, which is kind of interesting. Back to the grand experiment.

COLLEGE SUCCESS: Students at UCSB, Westmont, and other Santa Barbara colleges are embracing impactful majors.
ranslating academic pursuits into workplace
success is not always a straight path, but Santa Barbara’s college students seem to be on the right track.
Data Literacy is Key According to research from MIT Sloan School of Management titled Five Traits of the Workforce of the Future, “Data-driven companies enjoy increased revenue, improved customer service, best-in-class operating efficiencies, and improved profitability.” While Biology, Economics, and Computer Science remain the top majors for fall 2022 applicants of all types (first year/transfer students) at UC Santa Barbara, according to spokesperson Kiki Reyes, the field of Statistics and Data Science is on the upswing. While noting that increases can be large in small programs whose numbers fluctuate, the university provided the following stats: The top three majors for Fall 2022 applicants (first year/transfer students combined) that have seen an increase over the past 10 years: Statistics and Data Science (1,199 percent increase), Physical Geography (1,100 percent increase), and History of Public Policy and Law (778 percent increase).
Healthcare Growth Continues “Employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 16 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 2.6 million new jobs. Healthcare occupations are projected to add more jobs than any of the other occupational groups,” according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Note: This category includes much more than just doctors and nurses. Athletic trainers, dieticians, medical transcriptionists, veterinarians, pharmacists, and other occupations all fall under the healthcare umbrella. 30
JUNE 30, 2022
Westmont College graduates are on track to be part of this trend. According to spokesperson Scott Craig, “for the class of 2020, more than 13 percent of first-year students focused their studies on biology, chemistry, and pre-health fields, including pre-med, pre-dental, pre-vet, and pre-nursing.”
Advances in Social and Environmental Equity
Last month, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a $108.6 million program as part of a $250 million investment to address longstanding equity challenges in higher education and workforce participation, stating, “This essential collaboration will help bridge equity gaps and provide more resources to help our students achieve their career goals right in their own communities.” The study of Poverty, Inequity and Social Justice has also made its way into UC Santa Barbara’s offerings as a minor, where students explore the subject in both a historical and global context. In addition, at the graduate school level, a new master’s program in environmental data science recently wrapped up its first year, with an aim of preparing scientists for the new wave of data-driven research and environmental problem solving.

own), one thing stands out: Our workforce, our workplaces, and the way we work are moving forward and evolving in ways both large and small. The last two pandemic-filled years have forced businesses of every size to adapt to a fundamental upheaval in the way people work. With a forced timeout from some of the busyness of life, it has also been a time for people to reflect upon what matters most to them. In response to a recent online survey about “the way we work,” when they were asked “What do you value most about your job?” Independent readers ranked “interesting work,” “my colleagues,” and “challenging work” as their highest categories. In our reader survey, flexibility as a positive job value ranked behind creativity, and “the way it contributes to society/to the greater good.” But when Independent readers were asked about what they disliked about their jobs, they told a different story. “Money” and “lack of flexibility” were the top dislikes, followed by “lack of vacation,” “colleagues,” “boredom,” and “don’t feel valued.” A large-scale PwC 2022 Global Workforce Hopes and Fears Survey of 52,195 workers across 44 countries and territories also found that meaning matters to employees. When considering a change in work environment, the most important factors identified were: I am fairly rewarded financially (71 percent); I find my job fulfilling (69 percent); I can truly be myself (66 percent); My team cares about my well-being (60 percent); and I can be creative/innovative in my job (60 percent). On the local employer side, finding affordable housing for employees loomed large as a challenge. For example, “Over the years, a large portion of my staff have had to travel from Lompoc, Santa Maria, or Ventura because they could not afford to live in Santa Barbara,” said a participant, a sentiment echoed by several others. Recruitment and finding employees with the right skill set were also top survey answers to a question about challenges. When asked what they valued most about their employees, “competence” was the overwhelming winner, with 56 percent of employers surveyed choosing that over any other n qualities.

Brooks graduate, a veteran, and an F.B.I. employee walk into a daily newspaper and don’t leave for 51 years. Their name is Rafael Maldonado and that’s no joke. Rafael caught the camera bug in junior high and at 14, he got an Ansco film-developing kit from the owner of the dime store where he worked. A bathroom at his home soon became a darkroom where he developed rolls of film from the family Brownie camera, but it was a Nikorex 35mm his mom purchased with the family credit card that sealed the deal.
Rafael Maldonado Documented Santa Barbara for 51 Years by Paul Wellman In 1965, Rafael moved to Santa Barbara to attend Brooks Institute of Photography, but 13 months into his education, he was drafted by the Army. He served two years as a photographer, first in Oklahoma, then in Germany, shooting for NATO and Stars and Stripes. After he was discharged, Rafael really wanted to work at a Jacksonville paper, but they said he was overqualified and that he should try the FBI, who hired him immediately as a darkroom printer. Rafael’s iconic beard got an early start due to a skin condition that gave him a rare pass on shaving, though he did fear meeting J. Edgar Hoover in the halls to test that exception. It was there that he met his wife of 53 years, Maria, who was working on another floor in the ID department. Upon returning to Santa Barbara in 1970, the G.I. Bill helped Rafael buy a home in Isla Vista and a student loan allowed him to complete his Brooks education. He
picked up the part-time job at the Santa Barbara NewsPress that had been put on hold when he was drafted, which became a full-time gig once he graduated. A photographer covers a lot of ground at a daily paper: breaking news, parades, protests, celebrities, politics, sports. History is constantly being made, and Raf probably has a few million images to prove it. One particularly memorable moment came in the ’80s when Rafael, waiting near the Reagan Ranch for a scheduled arrival of Marine One, took a casual snap of a plane flying overhead. Back at the paper, he learned that a person had been taken into custody for flying in restricted airspace. Checking his contact sheet, he saw he had the culprit. By the next morning, the photo he submitted to the Associated Press had been republished all over the country. Rafael also took a first place award for a photo of a surfer being rescued from the rocky shores of Isla Vista. The image channeled Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, capturing the last second before a rescuer’s reaching hand made contact with the stranded youth. Fellow Santa Barbara news photographer Len Wood interned at the News-Press in 1976 and eventually rose to the rank of photo editor. He recalled Rafael as being “very influential” and showing him the ropes. Wood also remembered Maldonado being “completely different than anyone in the field because he always had interesting hobbies going on and stories that had zero to do with journalism. Most photojournalists get consumed with the job with photos coming first and everything else coming second.” And it’s true. Rafael was into video and illustrations. He was a marathoner until an injury made him swap his running shoes for swim trunks. He brewed beer and sold brewing supplies out of his home, and when he moved to Solvang, he started making wine. With so many other interests, it is ironic that he would become the one of the longest-serving photographers at the paper. Rafael embraced technology all along the way and says that “digital” is the best thing that could have happened to photography. Instead of worrying about the chemical hazards or mishaps during development, you can concentrate on what’s really important, like “the light and the moment,” he said. “And that’s, to me, where the picture happens.” After years of toting around two or three big cameras, Rafael welcomed the lightweight iPhone into his quiver. He always had a full-sized body and long lens at the ready, but for day to day images like food assignments or head shots, he preferred the phone. After 51 years, Rafael said it was strange to walk out the door of the News-Press for the last time, but the next chapter is going to be spent in Hawai‘i, where he will live close to his son and grandchild. He’ll still be snapping pics but mainly of the family or snorkeling with a GoPro. But there are parts of his career he’ll miss, he admitted. “The best thrill you can get in this job is, at the end of the day, you’re getting into your car and you say, ‘You know, this was a good day. I did okay today.’ Then you go home and enjoy the family.” n

He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another (wo) man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is my protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me ... whenever ... wherever — in case I need him. And I expect I will — as I always have. He is just my dog. —Gene Hill
y wife and I first saw MacGyver in August of 2013 when he was four weeks old. This was the guy I was looking for. We named him “MacGyver” because he was a Red-Tri Australian Shepherd and I had high hopes that he would solve many puzzles in his future as a K9 search and rescue (SAR) team member. We started training immediately, and MacGyver was a natural. He quickly learned the game of hide and seek and had an over-the-top play and prey drive. He soon became an important member of our pack. MacGyver even loved loading into a helicopter with the blades rotating. He was my perfect boy! After almost three years of training, MacGyver became “Mission Ready” in air scent and human remains detection. We started searching when needed in our county and throughout the state. It was exciting and a joy to watch MacGyver’s intensity when working and humbling when he would look at me for direction. After the January 9 Debris Flow, MacGyver and I responded to Montecito. Our assignment was to clear the backyards of the homes, and we searched in the areas east of Olive Mill Road and along Randall Road. After we cleared our section, I noticed that there was a
huge debris pile in Montecito Creek that was dammed up at a resident’s bridge. I asked a fire captain if anyone had searched it. He said no and then inquired about MacGyver’s ability. I answered by saying “Hey, man, his name is MacGyver.” MacGyver didn’t hesitate and soon gave me his human remains alert towards the up-stream portion of the pile. I called another K9 team over. Their dog alerted at the same location. We informed the fire captain of a possible find, and the next day a deceased 25-year-old female was unearthed. I was very proud of my boy. After two weeks, all but two of the missing residents were located. MacGyver and I continued to search Montecito regularly for the next two years, following up on any clue. Away from search and rescue, MacGyver was also very active. We walked, hiked, and backpacked together regularly, often sharing a single-person tent. Great fun! MacGyver loved playing in the snow while we took yearly cross-country ski trips. Together with my wife, we did camper trips. In 2018, we drove to the Arctic Ocean via the Canadian Northern Territories, and we put our paws in the Arctic Ocean. Last August we started a three-month camper road trip to eastern Canada and the Maritime Provinces. Two months in, MacGyver started showing signs of something wrong. After a veterinary visit in Maine, we realized that MacGyver was seriously ill. We decided to drive home immediately. MacGyver was diagnosed with lymphoma, and the prognosis was not good. After chemotherapy, however, MacGyver went into remission. Except for losing a few whiskers, you would never know he was ill. We had many good days. But then the cancer came back. Emergency chemo was tried but failed. MacGyver developed respiratory distress and we decided to let him travel the Rainbow Bridge to join our first SAR K9, Kody, and those other special creatures. We are grateful to everyone at Advanced Veterinary Specialists for their kind and compassionate care. MacGyver made a difference in my life, my family’s life, and others. He was my partner, our hero, our handsome boy, and we will forever miss him. MacGyver was truly a gift from God. I am reminded of something Dr. Seuss wrote many years ago: “Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.” With a heavy heart, now it is time to say, “MacGyver, Free Dog.” n

here was much to like early on in our dinner
JUNE 30, 2022
BACK TO THE HOTEL Oliver’s quickly caught a committed clientele, who continue to enjoy many of Riker’s original menu concepts today. But the pandemic pause set the chef looking for a new challenge, which arose with the chance to reenvision Finch & Fork. “I’m able to do whatever I want creatively,” said Riker, who was ready to cook meat again. “That’s made it really appealing.” The May reopening coincided with a complete refresh of the restaurant’s interior as well. Gone are the wood beams, brown leathers, and Andalusian-adjacent themes of the original decor, which cast somewhat of a big-city-hotelmeets-cigar-lounge vibe. (I liked that, personally.) Now, it’s all soft tones, light wood, and bright light, more bistro spa than steakhouse. The sunny atmosphere certainly matches much of Riker’s cuisine, particularly the many salads and fresh seafood apps and entrees. (“This is the best poke I’ve ever had, and that includes Hawai‘i,” was my wife’s endorsement.) But there’s plenty of heavier options on the menu too, including my pork chop, a short rib pappardelle, buttermilk fried chicken, and a New York strip. “That’s my mindset: We can be very inclusive of all different types of diners,” said Riker, who sees these early days, when staffing remains an issue for all restaurants, as just a glimpse of what’s to come. “Right now, we’re at the ground floor. Our aim is to evolve and take it from there in different ways without getting overly stuffy and white-tablecloth-y. We don’t want to be the place where you only come on special occasions. We’d love to have people come all the time. Come sit at the bar and have tuna poke, or come celebrate your anniversary and go all out.” Riker plans to make Finch & Fork a mandatory check-in for those seeking the frontiers of taste as well. “We will focus on familiar flavors, but do them in my version,” said Riker. “And every once in a while, I’ll throw something a little bit more for culinarians.” Just like that tangerine gem marigold, which will keep me coming back.

Dutch Garden Opening Soon? Dutch Garden is shooting for a July 2022 reopening under new ownership at 4203 State Street, though there is no hard date set. I stopped by this week and noticed that the paper covering the windows for the last few years has finally come down, the interior lights were on, and that tables and chairs have been added to the patio. A lighting system has been installed under the brand-new sign on the roof.

SONGS IN THE KEY OF SAFETY FIRST THE BOWL’S COVID COMPLIANCE TEAM ROCKS ON COURTESY PHOTOS
L I F E PAGE 43
TOTALLY ’80S PROM NIGHT From left: Donna Reeves, Shelley Rickard, and Carrie Offutt are three of the volunteers for the Santa Barbara Bowl’s COVID Compliance Team.
he 2022 Santa Barbara Bowl event season is in full summer swing, albeit with a few new protocols for those entering the popular outdoor venue. In our current pandemic-influenced world, concert-goers are familiar with showing proof of vaccinations or a negative COVID test result to Sansum Clinic staffers on arrival. But few are aware of the amazing efforts going on behind the scenes to keep us safe. Starting at 7 a.m. the day of a performance (and occasionally a day or two before), a jovial team of four volunteers administer COVID tests to about a hundred people who work in various capacities at the Bowl: security, food preparation staff, unions, trucking companies, and others. The team members talk and laugh with workers while they await results, usually about 10 minutes. “We are the first line of defense,” says COVID Compliance Director Maria Long, who created the testing system at the Bowl’s request in 2021. “It’s all Jackson Browne’s fault,” she laughs, explaining that in 2021, as he was preparing for his band’s first show after lockdown, Browne wanted to help. “He wanted to provide masks for everyone attending and wanted everyone who worked at the Bowl to be COVID-negative and compliant. He didn’t want anyone to get sick and bring it on tour. It was such a beautiful opportunity. The whole industry flipped its head,
going forward during really dark times.” Long earned an official COVID Compliance Certificate and trained three other volunteers—Donna Reeves, Shelley Rickard, and Carrie Offutt—to administer tests and screen for symptoms for the Jackson Browne show and subsequent events for the remainder of the season. Now in their second Bowl season, the team is a well-oiled machine. “We all get along,” says Long, who adds that all four members share a contagious sense of humor that entertains workers as they await results. “It’s a recipe for joy! Who would have thought COVID tests could do that?” The COVID testing team is the latest project in Maria Long’s extensive history of nonprofit service, with roots dating back to childhood. She grew up in Marin County, the only child of a psychiatrist and a social worker/journalist. Her father died when she was just 3 years old, and her mother took a job at Child Welfare Services for the County of Marin. “I was raised to be of service. It was demonstrated to me; it wasn’t expected of me.” Tragedy struck again when her mother died of cancer when Long was 16. She became a ward of the court and lived with three different foster families before becoming a legal adult. “It was a really, really rich childhood and at the same time quite painful.” Long says these early experiences laid the foundation

for who she is today, emphasizing that “we’re products of our environment.” She became a volunteer at Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Marin, “because I could relate so well to foster kids.” She also worked in the hotel and fashion industries during a time that coincided with the Bay Area music scene heyday of the ’70s, with regular concerts featuring the Grateful Dead, Santana, and other legendary groups rocking the local stages and parks. In 1998, Long moved to Santa Barbara to open a bikini store on State Street. Customers complained about body image, and Long decided she’d be better equipped to help them as a psychologist. She earned a master’s in clinical psychology at Antioch University and has devoted her career to service ever since, working for nonprofits CADA, CASA, and Doctors Without Walls. Today, she is the Director of Development and Community Awareness at Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics. She also produces and hosts a KZSB talk show, Community Matters. At the Bowl, Long’s volunteer COVID testing project has allowed her to marry her three main passions: music, medicine, and humanitarian assistance efforts. “It’s a labor of love,” she says. “We love the Bowl and music, and when it’s joyous, it’s amazing.” —Cheryl Crabtree
An impressive amount of creative energy flows through the teeny-tiny town of Los Alamos (pop. 1,275), some of which will be on view at the Los Alamos Theatre Group’s new production of Milo Sampson 1946, a Musical. The show, which runs from July 1-17 at the Depot Mall (515 Bell St.), is a passion project for writer/director Jeffrey Bloom, a Hollywood expat who has been putting on plays in the town since 2018, alongside his producer wife, Carole Bloom. Settling in Los Alamos 10 years ago, Jeffrey said he met so many interesting people and “larger-than-life personalities, I figured we could probably put a theater group together here.” The first show, The Chesterfield Women, was a benefit for Los Alamos Senior Center and featured detective Milo Sampson, who shows up again this summer. The six shows (Milo is the seventh) have been a labor of love, benefitting different nonprofits. This year the proceeds go to Summer in the Park, a free day camp that provides food and recreation for local kids, many of whom are the children of agricultural workers. Jeffrey writes the book and lyrics, and Connie Rohde and Lee Stanchfield write the music and coach the singers. The first show they did one song, and now they’re up to 10, Jeffrey laughs.“The music is getting better and better. And the singers are getting better.
MILO SAMPSON 1946, A MUSICAL It’s really an exciting process to watch what happens with a group of people that care and knock themselves out.” The cast includes Darcy Aviles, Doug Clark, Diane Lindquist, Jason Mergenov, Marisa Matela, Shelby Sim, Mike Terry, and Debbie Ulrick. The 1940s-style murder mystery also boasts a stalwart volunteer tech crew, including Dan Thompson, who owns the Depot Mall and has created a“nice little theater”as a home for the group. “It’s fun, but we take it really seriously, and everybody works hard for a long time,” said Jeffrey. “The money all goes to good causes, and lots of people in this town are really happy about it. It’s such an unusual thing to have theater in town; it’s the size of a grapefruit, but it’s pretty spectacular.” See latgstore.square.site. —Leslie Dinaberg
Joystix Put on your dancing shoes, and don’t forget the leg warmers! Joystix & DJ Darla Bea present a blast from the past with Totally ’80s Prom Night on Friday, July 1. What a fun way to get the Fourth of July holiday weekend festivities started. “It’s going to be like a totally fun night for sure—so dust off your dancing shoes and get Footloose with us on a Friday night!” said DJ Darla Bea, in her most Valley Girl voice.“I’ve been wanting to collaborate with Joystix again and have done plenty of ’80s-themed nights before, but this will be an actual Prom Night complete with corsages and less awkward dance moments.” Joystix — one of whom’s Bill & Ted–style “most excellent” guitarists is John Roshell, Indy columnist Starshine Roshell’s husband—is known for new-wave deep cuts and ’80s rock tracks. The band also features Dolan Ingraham on guitar, Jeff Sullivan on drums, George Pendergast on drums, Chris Yasko on vocals and bass, and Carrie Hutchinson on vocals and keytar. Joystix recently rocked UCSB’s“All Gaucho Reunion,” with Bea as the accompanying deejay.

he “soul of California” comes to the Uptown Lounge Patio on Friday July 1, when an all-star group of musicians gathers for La Alma De California, featuring Ricardo Sanchez — one of the founding members of San Diego’s top Chicano folk group Los Alacranes — on vocals, guitar, rinquinto, and accordion.

Rounding out the group is Juan Zaragoza on guitar. The multi-instrumentalist is the founder and leader of Santa Barbara’s Mariachi Las Olas, as well as an ethnomusicologist. He will anchor the
show with his knowledge and dedication to the sounds of Modern Mexico. This special event is free, and begins at 5:30 p.m. at Uptown Lounge, 3126 State St., uptownlounge805.com. —Leslie Dinaberg
MARIANNA VICTORIA MASHEK, IN PURSUIT OF BEAUTY
on’t worry about the heat; come dip your toe in watercolors. Local artist Marianna Victoria Mashek is displaying her vibrant watercolor paintings at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club (2375 Foothill Rd.) from July 2-August 30. Her exhibition, In Pursuit of Beauty, can be viewed daily between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., with a special artist reception on Friday, July 8, from 4:30-6 p.m. Mashek is a Santa Barbara native who graduated from Santa Barbara High and continued her education at UCSB and Antioch. Later, she worked for the Santa Barbara Arts Council, Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, and Santa Barbara City College. Mashek’s artwork is a delicate exploration of “lyrical storytelling and auspicious accidents.” Her work mostly centers around a combination of observations of nature, her travels, the intricacies of love, and her own imagination. Her vision is for her artwork to “inspire others to delight in beauty, love, and their own dreams.” See 2ndfridaysart.com. — Koss Klobucher

Leo Kottke In Pursuit of Beauty is on view at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club through the end of August.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny WEEK OF JUNE 30
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): In her poem “Two Skins,” Bahamanian writer Lynn Sweeting writes, “There is a moment in every snake’s life when she wears two skins: one you can see, about to be shed, one you cannot see, the skin under the skin, waiting.” I suspect you now have metaphorical resemblances to a snake on the verge of molting, Aries. Congratulations on your imminent rebirth! Here’s a tip: The snake’s old skin doesn’t always just fall away; she may need to take aggressive action to tear it open and strip it off, like by rubbing her head against a rock. Be ready to perform a comparable task.
(Apr. 20-May 20): “Imagine a world 300 years from now,” writes Japanese novelist Minae Mizumura, “a world in which not only the best-educated people but also the brightest minds and the deepest souls express themselves only in English. Imagine the world subjected to the tyranny of a singular ‘Logos.’ What a narrow, pitiful, and horrid world that would be!” Even though I am primarily an English speaker, I agree with her. I don’t want a world purged of diversity. Don’t want a monolithic culture. Don’t want everyone to think and speak the same. I hope you share my passion for multiplicity, Taurus—especially these days. In my astrological opinion, you’ll thrive if you immerse yourself in a celebratory riot of variety. I hope you will seek out influences you’re not usually exposed to.
(May 21-June 20): Imagine you’re not a person, but a medley of four magical ingredients. What would they be? A Gemini baker named Jasmine says, “ripe persimmons, green hills after a rain, a sparkling new Viking Black Glass Oven, and a prize-winning show horse.” A Gemini social worker named Amarantha says she would be made of “Florence and the Machine’s song ‘Sky Full of Song,’ a grove of birch trees, a blue cashmere knee-length sweater, and three black cats sleeping in the sun.” A Gemini delivery driver named Altoona says, “freshly harvested cannabis buds, a bird-loving wetlands at twilight, Rebecca Solnit’s book Hope in the Darkness, and the Haleakalā shield volcano in Maui.” And now, Gemini, what about you? Identify your medley of four magical ingredients. The time is right to reimagine the poetry of YOU.
(June 21-July 22): Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard believes there’s only one way to find a sense of meaning, and that is to fill your life to the bursting point; to be in love with your experience; to celebrate the flow of events wherever it takes you. When you do that, Godard says, you have no need or urge to ask questions like “Why am I here?” or “What is my purpose?” The richness of your story is the ultimate response to every enigma. As I contemplate these ideas, I say: wow! That’s an intensely vibrant way to live. Personally, I’m not able to sustain it all the time. But I think most of us would benefit from such an approach for brief periods now and then. And I believe you have just entered one of those phases.
(July 23-Aug. 22): I asked Leo readers to provide their insights about the topic “How to Be a Leo.” Here are responses that line up with your current astrological omens. (1) People should try to understand you’re only bossing them around for their benefit. —Harlow Hunt. (2) Be alert for the intense shadows you may cast with your intense brightness. Consider the possibility that even if they seem iffy or dicey, they have value and even blessings to offer. —Cannarius Kansen. (3) Never break your own heart. Never apologize for showering yourself with kindness and adoration. —Amy Clear. (4) At the moment of orgasm, scream out your own name. —Bethany Grace.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s your birthright as a Virgo to become a master of capitalizing on difficulties. You have great potential to detect opportunities coalescing in the midst of trouble. You can develop a knack for spotting the order that’s hiding in the chaos. Now is a time when you should
wield these skills with artistry, my dear—both for your own benefit and for the betterment of everyone whose lives you touch.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): One of my heroes died in 2021: the magnificent Libran author bell hooks (who didn’t capitalize her name). She was the most imaginative and independentminded activist I knew. ’Til her last day, she articulated one-of-a-kind truths about social justice; she maintained her uncompromising originality. But it wasn’t easy. She wrote, “No insurgent intellectual, no dissenting critical voice in this society escapes the pressure to conform. We are all vulnerable. We can all be had, co-opted, bought. There is no special grace that rescues any of us. There is only a constant struggle.” I bring this to your attention, Libra, because I suspect the coming weeks will require your strenuous efforts to remain true to your high standards and unique vision of reality.
Join us in reading July’s book of the month! JUNE’S THEME:
CRIME, THRILLER, SUSPENSE
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You now have the power to make yourself even more beautiful than you already are. You are extraordinarily open to beautifying influences, and there will be an abundance of beautifying influences coming your way. I trust you understand I’m not referring to the kinds of beauty that are worshiped by conventional wisdom. Rather, I mean the elegance, allure, charm, and grace that you behold in old trees and gorgeous architecture and enchanting music and people with soulful idiosyncrasies. P.S.: The coming weeks will also be a favorable time to redefine the meaning of beauty for yourself.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s the Season for Expressing Your Love—and for expanding and deepening the ways you express your love. I invite you to speak the following quotes to the right person: (1) “Your head is a living forest full of songbirds.” —E. E. Cummings. (2) “Lovers continuously reach each other’s boundaries.” —Rainer Maria Rilke. (3) “You’re my favorite unfolding story.” —Ann Patchett. (4) “My lifetime listens to yours.” —Muriel Rukeyser.
J ULY ’S READ:
The Test by Sylvain Neuvel independent.com/indybookclub
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the coming weeks, make sure you do NOT fit this description articulated by Capricorn novelist Haruki Murakami: “You’re seeking something, but at the same time, you are running away for all you’re worth.” If there is any goal about which you feel conflicted like that, dear Capricorn, now is a good time to clear away your confusion. If you are in some sense undercutting yourself, perhaps unconsciously, now is the time to expose your inner saboteur and seek the necessary healing. July will be Self-Unification Month.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A Tweeter named Luxuryblkwomen articulates one of her ongoing goals: “bridging the gap between me and my ideal self, one day at a time.” I’d love it if you would adopt a similar aspiration in the coming months. You’re going to be exceptionally skilled at all types of bridge-building, including the kind that connects you to the hero you’ll be in the future. I mean, you are already a hero in my eyes, but I know you will ultimately become an even more fulfilled and refined version of your best self. Now is a favorable time to do the holy work of forging stronger links to that star-to-be.
(Feb. 19-March 20): A blogger named Lissar suggests that the cherry blossom is an apt symbol for you Pisceans. She describes you as “transient, lissome, blooming, lovely, fragile yet memorable and recurring, in tune with nature.” Lissar says you “mystify yet charm,” and that your “presence is a balm, yet awe-inspiring and moving.” Of course, like all of us, you also have your share of less graceful qualities. And that’s not a bad thing! We’re all here to learn the art of growing into our ripe selves. It’s part of the fun of being alive. But I suspect that in the coming weeks, you will be an extra close match for Lissar’s description. You are at the peak of your power to delight and beguile us.

El período de revisión pública comienza el viernes 1 de Julio de 2022 y finalizará el lunes 1 de Agosto de 2022 a las 12:00 p.m. Se alienta a todas las personas interesadas a enviar comentarios por escrito a la Ciudad de Goleta ATTN: Planificación y Revisión Ambiental, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117, a la atención de Laura Bridley, Planificadora de Contratos (Lbridley@cityofgoleta.org) y Teresa Lopes (TLopes@cityofgoleta.org) para el Departamento de Obras Públicas. Todos los comentarios deben recibirse a más tardar el lunes 1 de Agosto de 2022 a las 12:00 p.m. Sitio del proyecto: El sitio del proyecto está ubicado junto al arroyo San Jose desde Calle Real en el norte hasta Armitos Avenue (segmento norte), y desde Kellogg Avenue a lo largo del lado oeste y cruzando bajo la ruta estatal (SR) 217, para conectar con el camino de bicicleta del arroyo de Atascadero / Sendero Obern/ Ruta de la costa (segmento sur). El segmento norte está ubicado en la ciudad y se construiría principalmente dentro del derecho de paso existente de la ciudad y se cruzaría bajo los derechos de paso de UPRR y Caltrans. El segmento sur del proyecto está ubicado en la ciudad, la zona costera y el condado de Santa Bárbara, y se construiría principalmente dentro del derecho de paso existente de Caltrans. La adquisición parcial del derecho de paso ocurriría en todo el sitio del proyecto, en APN 071-035-CA, APN 071-090-048, APN 071090-047, APN 071-090-074, APN 071-090-083, APN 071-010-010, APN 071-090-082, APN 069-160-013, APN 071-200-011 y APN 071-140-055. Descripción del Proyecto: Segmento Norte: El segmento norte del proyecto construiría un camino multipropósito pavimentado de aproximadamente 2,400 pies de largo y de 10 a 14 pies de ancho. La profundidad de excavación para el proyecto sería de aproximadamente 8 pies para 15 muros de contención requeridos con cimientos de muros de pilotes soldados en ciertas áreas que tendrían hasta 40 pies de profundidad. El proyecto construiría secciones de senderos tanto en el lado norte como en el lado sur de la Calle Real uniéndose a la acera existente y los carriles para bicicletas Clase II. Las mejoras en la Calle Real incluyen la reconstrucción de un segmento de la acera existente en el lado norte de la Calle Real en el enlace del camino multipropósito e incluyen muros de contención y barreras de concreto. La parte del proyecto que se une al lado sur de la Calle Real se ubicaría entre la Calle Real y el derecho de paso de Caltrans en el US 101. Dentro de este segmento, se anticipa que la barandilla existente, unida a la Calle existente Real Bridge, tendría que extenderse hacia el oeste dentro de los límites del proyecto.

Segmento Sur: El segmento sur del proyecto construiría un camino de usos múltiples de aproximadamente 1 milla de largo y de 8 a 12 pies de ancho. Se construiría un puente para bicicletas/peatones en el extremo norte del proyecto para brindar acceso desde South Kellogg Avenue sobre el canal del arroyo de San Jose. El puente tendría aproximadamente 350 pies de largo y 12 pies de ancho para acomodar un carril de 5 pies en cada dirección y una barandilla de eslabones de cadena en cada lado. Se construiría una barrera de concreto de 2 pies y un carril para bicicletas/peatones para separar el camino de usos múltiples de la SR 217. En el extremo sur del sitio del proyecto, se construiría una alcantarilla para brindar acceso debajo de las\ SR 217, un mínimo de 40 pies al norte del extremo del puente de la SR 217, antes de conectar el proyecto con el carril para bicicletas Clase I Atascadero Creek existente (Sendero Obern/Ruta de la costa).

LOCATION: Goleta City Hall, 130 Cremona Drive, Goleta, CA, 93117 and Teleconference Meeting; this meeting will be held in person and via Zoom (with detailed instructions for participation included on the posted agenda). PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION: The site is located at 35 Ellwood Station Road (APN 079-210-066) in the Inland Area of the City of Goleta. The site has a General Commercial (CG) General Plan Land Use and Zoning Designation. The applicant has requested the approval of the following project components under the CUP application: 1. Conversion of an existing 190 sf storage and restroom building into a restroom building. The restroom is proposed to be connected to the existing Goleta West Sanitary District sewer system in Ellwood Station Road and the Goleta Water District water supply on-site. 2. Provision of 170 uncovered storage spaces for boats and RVs, totaling 60,341 square feet (1.39 acres) of the site. 3. Provision of 13 uncovered contractor storage areas for materials and equipment, totaling 18,423 square feet (0.42 acres) of the site. These spaces are proposed at the westerly portion of the site. 4. The existing septic system serving existing single-room restroom is proposed to be abandoned in-place. 5. Provision of 3-visitor parking spaces, inclusive of one accessible space, adjacent to the rehabilitated restroom building. 6. Two existing underground pit structures formerly used to convey materials in the prior use of the site are proposed to be curbed to protect from traffic and covered with waterproof concrete roof to prevent ponding. The two structures will also be fenced for safety. 7. A 20-feet wide by 1,210 feet long landscaped bioswale is proposed along the southern property line to capture and partially treat storm water. 8. Other proposed improvements include 8-foot-high security fencing with landscape screening, decorative landscaping at the property entrance, an entrance gate, driveway, and a stepped concrete stem wall of approximately 8-feet in height. The site will be accessed by monitored keypad with time lock to prevent use outside of business hours from 7AM to 6PM. Further, the site will have security cameras every 200 feet around the perimeter, which will be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Security lighting will be on motion sensors to discourage unwanted visitors. 9. Frontage improvements are proposed such as sidewalk, curb, and gutter, and drainage improvements for storm water to connect to existing drainage improvements along Ellwood Station and pursuant to the City’s standards. 10. The outdoor storage areas will not include any individual utilities (e.g., water, electricity) and no storage of hazardous materials above the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standard quantities would be allowed. 11. No new habitable structures are proposed as a part of the project and the project does not include any full-time employees. The site will be unstaffed. The site will be visited weekly by maintenance personnel who will conduct landscape maintenance, inspection of rental stalls and any debris cleanup required. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: A Notice of Exemption (NOE) has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq., CEQA), the regulations promulgated thereunder (14 California Code of Regulations, §§ 15000, et seq., CEQA Guidelines), and the City’s Environmental Review Guidelines. The City of Goleta is acting as the Lead Agency. The NOE is appropriate pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §15332 due to the project being within the City of Goleta limits on a 4.9-acre site and is substantially surrounded by existing urbanized uses. The existing parcel is and/or will be served by all required utilities and public services. The new development conforms to the policies of the City of Goleta General Plan, and the regulations of Title 17, the Goleta Zoning Ordinance, within the City of Goleta Municipal Code. CORTESE LIST: The Project site is not listed on the EnviroStor online database of hazardous site records maintained by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control TSC in coordination with the California State Water Resources Control Board consistent with Government Code § 65962.5 (the “Cortese list”). PUBLIC COMMENT: Interested persons are encouraged to provide public comments during the public hearing in person or virtually through the Zoom webinar, by following the instructions listed on the Planning Commission meeting agenda.

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY FOR A DRAFT MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION June 30, 2022 SAN JOSE CREEK MULTIPURPOSE PATH PROJECT located along San Jose Creek from Calle Real to Atascadero Creek Bicycle Path Public Right of Way and Multiple APN’s NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Goleta has completed a Draft Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS-MND) for the San Jose Creek Multipurpose Path Project, described below, and invites comments on the adequacy and completeness of the environmental analysis described in the Draft IS-MND. The public review period commences on Friday July 1, 2022 and will conclude on Monday August 1, 2022 at 12:00 P.M. All interested persons are encouraged to submit written comments to the City of Goleta ATTN: Planning and Environmental Review, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117, to the attention of Laura Bridley, Contract Planner (Lbridley@cityofgoleta.org) and Teresa Lopes (TLopes@cityofgoleta.org) for the Public Works Department. All comments must be received no later than Monday, August 1, 2022 at 12:00 P.M. Project Location: The project site is located adjacent to the west side of San Jose Creek from Calle Real to Armitos Avenue (northern segment), and from Kellogg Avenue south of Hollister Avenue crossing over the San Jose Creek channel and extend along the west side of SR 217 before crossing under State Route (SR) 217, to connect with the existing Atascadero Creek Bikeway/Obern Trail/Coast Route on the east side of SR 217 (southern segment). The northern segment will cross under Calle Real, US 101 and the UPRR bridge over San Jose Creek and is located in the City, and would be constructed primarily within the existing City right-of-way and cross into UPRR and Caltrans rights-of-way. The southern segment of the project is located in the City, coastal zone and the County of Santa Barbara, and would be constructed primarily within the existing Caltrans right-of-way. Partial right-of-way acquisition would occur throughout the project site, at APN 071-035-CA, APN 071-090-048, APN 071-090-047, APN 071-090-074, APN 071-090-083, APN 071-010-010, APN 071090-082, APN 069-160-013, APN 071-200-011, and APN 071-140-055. Project Description: Northern Segment: The northern segment of the project would construct a paved multipurpose path approximately 2,400 feet in length and ranging from 10 to 14 feet in width. There are 15 sections of retaining walls proposed throughout the northern segment. Excavation depth for the project would be approximately 8 feet at spread footing wall foundations to up to 40 feet at retaining wall locations with soldier pile wall foundations. The project would construct sections of path on both the north side and south side of Calle Real tying into the existing sidewalk and Class II bicycle lanes. The improvements at Calle Real include the reconstruction of a segment of the existing sidewalk on the north side of Calle Real at the multipurpose path tie-in and include retaining walls and concrete barriers. The portion of the project tying into the south side of Calle Real would be located between the Calle Real and the Caltrans right-of-way at US 101. Within this segment, it is anticipated that the existing guard rail, attached to the existing Calle Real Bridge, would need to be extended west within the project limits. In coordination with UPRR, additional railroad ties would be added to close any gaps between the existing railroad ties, creating a solid deck above the proposed multipurpose path. Southern Segment: The southern segment of the project would construct a multipurpose path approximately 1 mile in length and ranging from 8 to 12 feet in width. A bicycle/pedestrian bridge would be constructed at the north end of the project to provide access from South Kellogg Avenue over the San Jose Creek channel. The bridge would be approximately 350 feet long and 12 feet wide to accommodate a 5-foot-lane in each direction and chain link railing on each side. A 2-foot concrete barrier and bicycle/pedestrian rail would be constructed to separate the multipurpose path from SR 217. At the south end of the project site, a box culvert would be constructed to provide access under SR 217, a minimum of 39 feet north of the SR 217 end of bridge, before connecting the project to the existing Class I Atascadero Creek Bikeway (Obern Trail/Coast Route). The box culvert would have a minimum 8-foot vertical clearance and 14-foot width, with a length of approximately 144 feet. The cast-in-drilled-hole pile and driven steel pipe pile foundations for the bridge and the culvert, respectively, would be approximately 50 feet in depth. Work would be outside the top of bank and the active channel of San Jose Creek. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: The proposed Draft IS-MND has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (Public Resources Code, §§ 21000 et seq.), the regulations promulgated thereunder (14 Cal. Code of Regulations, §§ 15000, et seq.), and the City’s Environmental Review Guidelines. The City of Goleta is acting as the Lead Agency in coordination with Caltrans who is acting as a Responsible Agency for this project. The Draft IS-MND identifies and discusses potential impacts, mitigation measures, monitoring requirements, and residual impacts for identified environmental issue areas. No significant and unavoidable impacts are identified as resulting from the project. Potentially significant but mitigable effects on the environment are anticipated in the following areas: aesthetics, biological resources, geology/soils, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, noise, wildfire, and mandatory findings of significance.
