PADDLING FOR POTTER Our longtime senior editor Matt Kettmann stepped away from his laptop this past weekend to join the 20th anniversary of the Friendship Paddle, this time raising money and support for his close friend, the popular plein air artist Chris Potter, who is fighting a rare and aggressive cancer. It was Matt’s second time on the paddle—the first was in 2016, to support longtime Indy writer Ethan Stewart, who is doing well and was also out there this weekend.
TABLE of CONTENTS
How’d the day go? Sunday was like a dream, almost lake-like conditions and warm water, in between a rough Saturday swell and the weird rainbows and rains of Monday morning. That made paddling relatively easy and kept everyone in positive spirits. There was a brief shark situation that forced a few people out of the water, but then that was quickly forgotten.

SEPTEMBER 22, 2022
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Goleta, it’s the much-reviled Revenue Neutrality Deal that voters effectively ratified back when they voted for cityhood. It actually mandated the County of Santa Barbara to eat up an outsized slice of Goleta city’s sales tax revenues. Right now, Goleta charges a sales tax of 7.75 percent. Of that, the county — and other special districts — collect the 7 percent, and Goleta gets the remaining .75. Measure B must pass if the City of Goleta is going to keep roads paved, build new bike paths, expand homeless services, and critically, build a much-needed new fire station on the west end of town.
Endorsements So far
City Council District 1: Luz Reyes-Martín

City Council District 2: James Kyriaco
the only councilmember to vote against the sales tax, and he actually wrote the ballot argument against it. If Goleta residents had to make do with less, he argued, so too should local government. We don’t agree.

Check our daily website at Independent.com for continuing information on other candidate races, city measures, and state propositions. As always, the Independent only endorses in races that we have researched carefully. In this, our first installment, we are focusing on the Lompoc mayoral race and the City of Goleta.Thank you

City of Goleta
ome, famously, was not built in a day. The City of Goleta has been at it for 20 years now, after years of languishing in the hands of Santa Barbara county government. Back then, such jokes as “What’s the difference between Goleta and a bowl of yogurt? Yogurt has culture” were plentiful. This joke, by the way, was told by a former county supervisor who actually represented part of the Goleta Valley. Since 2002, when Goleta voted to incorporate as a city, its government has effectively built a panoply of services residents would reasonably expect from any competent municipal entity. But more importantly, it has begun to offer the Goodland’s 55,000 residents an existential center of gravity where grievances can be heard and some semblance of collective self-determination can take place. This year’s ballot offers two highly competitive races between qualified candidates all richly steeped in government experience. With three Latinx candidates who are fluent in Spanish, it’s also the most diverse group Goleta has ever seen, thanks in great part to the city switching to district elections. Also on the ballot are two measures, one of which, Measure B, is the most critical decision Goleta voters will have to decide this year. The other is a no-brainer on the subject of flavored tobacco vapes. Of course, every origin story has a snake in the grass. In

his race is a classic matchup between a candidate from the old school and one from the new era. Incumbent Roger Aceves, a 16-year city councilman, a former Santa Barbara city cop, and the first Spanish-speaking Latino to hold elected office in Goleta, is running against the first Latina — Luz ReyesMartín, a young mom who served eight years on the Goleta Union School Board. Nominally, both are Democrats, though Aceves — whose family dates back to the founding of Santa Barbara — sometimes casts himself as the curmudgeonly voice of more conservative opposition. Both are dedicated to the communities they serve. Both are formidable. Ultimately, we concluded, Reyes-Martín brings more of what’s needed in the years ahead for the City of Goleta. A child of Mexican immigrants, she grew up in Downey, attended Stanford and USC, and earned two master’s degrees — one in land-use planning and public administration. She and her husband have lived in Goleta where they are raising their young child, for 10 years. During that time, Reyes-Martín spent three years with the City of Goleta working with emergency services and the parks, another six as communications director for City College, and now works in a leadership role at Planned Parenthood. Within the local Democratic Party, she’s long been regarded as a rising star. No surprise. She has an open, friendly manner and speaks her mind but strives for cooperation. On the school board, she radiated an ease and civility during stressful public events. Politically, she’s both book-smart and street-smart, a genuine policy wonk with a shrewd sense of opportunity and of strategy: a pragmatic progressive. Reyes-Martín opted to sit out Measure B, the proposed sales tax increase, deferring to the will of the voters rather than staking out any position. We wish she had been bolder. But Aceves — always refreshingly candid — was
ncumbent James Kyriaco can honestly say he has moved the needle to expand child care opportunities in Goleta. Long before other politicians “discovered” that the lack of affordable quality childcare posed a palpable danger to mothers, children, families, and workplaces across America, James Kyriaco had been beating that drum ever since he was first elected four years ago . It was an effective political move, but so what? It is a desperately needed service and one that only he seems laser-focused on. Perhaps one of the wonkiest of elected officials on the South Coast, Kyriaco went über-granular, pushing obscure zoning ordinances that rewarded developers by including childcare facilities in their projects. He pushed legislation to relieve day care providers of some of the onerous development costs and mitigation fees that can price them — or their families — out of the market. When elected officials actually try to do what they say they’re going to do, and then deliver the goods, you endorse them. How could we not? Kyriaco qualifies as a progressive middle-of-the-roader. He grew up in Santa Barbara and cut his teeth working on the political campaigns of such elected officials as Brian Barnwell, Roger Horton and Susan Rose, also progressive middle-of-the-roaders. On the council, he’s been an ardent advocate for the one percent sales tax increase; as proponents point out, that’s a 50-cent surcharge on a $50 dinner. Running against Kyriaco is Sam Ramirez, whom Kyriaco appointed to the Goleta Planning Commission a year and a half ago. Both Kyriaco and Ramirez are card-carrying Democrats. Kyriaco snagged the endorsement of the local party. Having served eight years on the city council of his hometown, Delano, Ramirez clearly has political chops. But even with his time with SEIU Local 620 — and working at Santa Barbara City Hall for the City Clerk — his depth of Goleta experience doesn’t match that of Kyriaco’s. Ramirez opposes the proposed sales tax increase, saying Goleta has not exhausted all efforts to negotiate a new deal with the county. We don’t buy it. Goleta has, in fact, worked hard to strike a better deal. Given the overwhelming need for massively expensive infrastructure and capital improvement projects, now is the time to act, not some day over the rainbow.
Measure B: Yes
f approved, Measure B won’t take effect until 2024. Exempt from the new tax will be gas, prescription medications, grocery food, and rent. Without the $42 million worth of road maintenance work, road quality will continue to deteriorate to the point it will cost $78 million 10 years from now. Goleta’s sales tax rate is currently the lowest among Santa Barbara cities. It’s one percent lower than Santa Barbara’s and Santa Maria’s. Given the large influx of out-of-town shoppers who visit Goleta’s Calle Real Shopping Center — home to Costco and Home Depot — it’s estimated that 44 percent of the higher taxes will be paid from non-city residents. Four of the five Goleta City councilmembers are supporting Measure B. The one-cent bump in the city’s sales tax will allow the city to totally bypass the Revenue Sharing Deal with the county. The council has put together a wish list for the funds, should Measure B prevail. The biggest chunk — $3.3 million a year — would go to road maintenance, with $1.9 million going to childcare and affordable housing, $600,000 to homeless programs, and $800,000 to creek restoration and watershed. Without Measure B funds, it will be a cold day in hell before the community center gets the rehab it desperately needs.
Measure C: Yes
f Measure C is approved, Goleta would effectively ban the sale of flavored tobacco products in retail outlets. Those who sell vape products would be liable for administrative penalties up to $250. This measure mirrors a statewide ballot initiative — Prop. 31 — that seeks to do the same thing, though not quite as strictly. Despite protests by the tobacco industry that minors are already legally prohibited from buying such products, evidence abounds that flavored
tobacco products provide an inviting pathway to tobacco addiction. Tobacco manufacturers intentionally target minors with candy-flavored products. Anything that makes it more difficult to get tobacco products in anyone’s hands — and lungs — is a step in the right direction.
City of Lompoc Mayor: Jenelle Osborne C ITY OF LOMPO C
or those with a taste for self-destructive right-wing anarchism, the mayoral candidacy of Lompoc’s Jim Mosby will come as a welcome breath of fresh air. For everyone else, Mosby’s bull-in-a-china-shop, pokethe-bear style of government — all anti-taxes, anti-regulation, and let-the-free-market-run-amok — is not an exercise in nos-
talgia to be indulged in. While incumbent Jenelle Osborne — a Texas transplant who runs an accounting firm — is not nearly so colorful or confrontational, she has brought a degree of competence and collegiality to City Hall, seeking consensus out when possible. Since Mosby — a former city councilmember — lost to Osborne in his last mayoral bid four years ago, Lompoc has been able to creep back from the precipice of financial ruin on which it was so precariously perched. When Mosby served on the council, he held uncommon sway. During those years, new taxes were violently rebuffed even if it meant losing one-third of the sworn officers serving on Lompoc’s police department. Ironically, the Mosby regime was all about defunding the police — if from a right-wing perspective — long before any Minneapolis cops put their knees on George Floyd’s neck. Mosby’s idea of urban revitalization was to allow an unlimited number of cannabis dispensaries to open and then charge them absolutely no taxes for the privilege. The theory was to allow the cannabis industry to secure a toehold without government interference and then flourish. Currently, there are 14 dispensaries, more than the number of 7-Elevens. But in practice, this large number has helped to drive down the price of cannabis below the threshold required for economic survival. Residents of Lompoc had to overcome the passionate opposition of Mosby and his confederates on the council to finally get a cannabis tax on the ballot, where it passed overwhelmingly. Ron Fink, a moderate Republican and longtime Lompoc columnist, has written critically of Mosby’s approach. In response, Mosby had designed a custom-made bumper stinker featuring a pile of cow manure accompanied by the headline, “Fink Happens.” In the post-Mosby world, however, Lompoc is finding its way. New businesses are opening up and new industries being courted. A new wind is blowing through town. Please cast your vote for Jenelle Osborne. And lest you forget, “Mosby Happens.” n

Expert Punches Holes in Cantin Debris Flow Report
SANTA BAR BAR A MTD
COURTS & CRIME
Three forensic expert sources have now disputed the claim made by a former UCSB anthropologist that she positively identified the remains of missing 17-year-old Montecito debris flow victim Jack Cantin.
skeletonized, they can stay skeletonized for decades, centuries, or even much, much longer.” It was not clear from Kurin’s analysis how she determined the bones had been buried for only two to three years, Pilloud said. In addition, for an age-of-death estimate, Kurin used an unfused epiphysis — the expanded end of bones in animals that becomes fixed to the shaft when full growth is attained—to provide a range of 16-19 years. “However, typically, only a maximum age can be estimated with this information,” Pilloud said, “as individuals under 16 could also have an unfused epiphysis.” Moreover, Kurin fails to offer sound reasoning to explain how she knows the bones are of human origin, Pilloud said. The toe bone and unfused epiphysis could have hypothetically come from another mammal. “The report correctly describes how histological analysis can differentiate human from nonhuman bone,” Pilloud said of the method that studies the microscopic anatomy of biological tissues. “But it appears no histological analysis was done on these remains.” The earlier DNA testing, conducted by a genome sequencing laboratory in Santa Cruz, found no evidence to substantiate Kurin’s claim that the bone fragments were human. In fact, the lab said, it was more likely they came from a cow. Pilloud lastly wondered about Kurin’s qualifications to carry out such an investigation, given her professional background in bioarchaeology, the study of skeletal remains in historical contexts. Forensic anthropologists, meanwhile, work with modern cases that fall within the scope of law enforcement inquiries. “There are several ways to demonstrate expertise and qualifications within forensic anthropology—through publication record,

by Tyler Hayden ormer UCSB assistant professor Dr. Danielle Kurin was acting far beyond her expertise when she declared the remains of missing Montecito debris flow victim Jack Cantin had been found, and she conducted analyses “that did not seem to be based in scientific methods,” a leading forensic anthropologist opined this week. The techniques Kurin used to determine the remains’ antiquity and origin were often “confusing” and “unclear,” and portions of her published findings were outright “disingenuous,” said Dr. Marin Pilloud with the University of Reno, Nevada, who reviewed a report prepared by Kurin in the case at the request of the Independent, which obtained the 31-page document through a public records request. “The report does not broadly follow best practices within the field, and it is difficult to understand how these conclusions are being made,” Pilloud said. The comments by Pilloud, who regularly consults on forensic casework and coauthored the book Ethics and Professionalism in Forensic Anthropology, mark the third direct challenge to Kurin’s findings. DNA testing on the eight small bone fragments Kurin submitted last summer failed to confirm they belonged to 17-year-old Cantin, and a separate outside expert determined they had been in the ground far longer than the few years since the 2018 debris flow. Multiple attempts to reach Kurin directly were unsuccessful. Her attorney, Dave Scher, based in Washington, D.C., said Monday he would provide a written statement on Kurin’s behalf, but he did not do so by press time. Cantin’s mother, Kim, remains convinced of Kurin’s conclusions and is in a protracted dispute with the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office over possession of the bone fragments. She has claimed the department is unfairly denying her the ability to declare her son deceased and officially bury him. Kim’s attorney, Barry Cappello, did not return a request for comment for this story. Digging into the specifics of Kurin’s report, Pilloud noted that Kurin estimated the stature of the person the remains allegedly belonged to based on metatarsal (foot) measurements. “Yet no metatarsal bone was recovered,” Pilloud said. “Instead, a pedal phalanx (toe bone) is noted as being recovered, and as far as I know, there are no methods to estimate stature from a toe bone, and none are cited in the report.” “The antiquity of the remains is also slightly confusing,” Pilloud continued. “When remains are skeletonized, it can be difficult to provide a maximum age, as once bones are
board certification, or even membership in professional organizations,” said Pilloud. “I am unfamiliar with any such publications by Dr. Kurin. Further, she is not a board-certified forensic anthropologist, nor am I aware of her involvement in professional organizations such as the Society of Forensic Anthropologists or the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.” Concerns have been raised since the beginning of the case over how and when Kurin notified the Santa Barbara County Coroner’s Bureau of her discovery, as well as the manner in which she publicly announced through the media alongside a grieving Kim Cantin that the teen’s remains had finally been unearthed after three long years of searching. Email exchanges between Kurin and the Coroner’s Bureau obtained by the Independent also reveal Kurin falsely claimed to investigators that her work had been peerreviewed by a colleague with a doctorate and a professorship at Washington State University. In reality, that individual was a graduate student and adjunct instructor on whose PhD committee Kurin sat. At the time last summer, Kurin was applying for tenure at UCSB, which she was granted. However, in January, as pointed questions started being asked about her role in the Cantin investigation, she abruptly resigned her position. Kurin, the daughter of noted cultural anthropologist Richard Kurin, the Smithsonian Institution’s Distinguished Scholar and Ambassador-at-Large, has previously been accused of misconduct. In 2016, she was placed on a three-year administrative leave from UCSB after an investigation found she had retaliated against students who reported her partner at the time for sexual harassment.
A false alarm call that there was an active shooter on the loose at Bishop Diego High School in Santa Barbara was one of five hoax calls made 9/14 involving California schools. The FBI is investigating these calls as part of a possible coordinated action, but no such determination has been made. S.B. Police spokesperson Sgt. Ethan Ragsdale said nearly 100 law enforcement officers were immediately dispatched to Bishop Diego when the 9-1-1 call came in shortly before 1 p.m., alerting dispatchers that an active shooting was taking place. It took law enforcement about half an hour to inspect the school’s interior and exterior to determine that no active shooter was, in fact, present.

In the latest, perhaps last, and certainly most shocking decision amid a career of traditionbucking moves, Yvon Chouinard (above) is donating his ownership of Patagonia to fund environmental causes. The decision to move his family’s estimated $3 billion in ownership value to the Patagonia Holding Trust and the Holdfast Collective was announced by the company to employees and in the New York Times on 9/14. The company itself will remain a for-profit entity, but each year’s dividends — estimated at $100 million annually — will further empower efforts to save the planet from climate change.

CITY While not quite the Treasure of the Sierra Madre, the healthy spike in city revenues — bed taxes and sales taxes combined — have many in City Hall salivating on where the unexpected revenues might best be spent. Bed taxes collected in the month of August ($3.59 million) came in nearly 20 percent higher than budgeted, and sales tax revenues for the fiscal year 2022 ($28.5 million) are 22.7 higher than anticipated. The higher-than-expected bed taxes reflect the enduring strength of tourist demand for hotel beds and the high rates currently being charged. The real action at the City Council is now shifting to the Finance Committee, which is charge of allocating the unexpected inflow. n

SEPTEMBER 22, 2022
by Ryan P. Cruz early three years after intentionally swerving his Chevy Camaro into oncoming traffic at nearly 120 miles per hour in October 2019— smashing head-on into another vehicle and killing 34-year-old Rebecca Vanessa Goss Bley and her two children — John Dungan was sentenced to three consecutive terms of 15 years to life by Judge Thomas Adams in Santa Barbara on Monday. Dungan was found guilty of three felony counts of second-degree murder on August 2, following an emotionally charged trial that recounted the events leading up to and following the fatal collision on October 25, 2019. The prosecution team — led by deputy district attorneys Megan Chanda and Stephen Wagner — originally sought three counts of first-degree murder and built a case that a suicidal and homicidal Dungan purposely plowed his car into Bley’s Chevy Volt, ejecting her from the vehicle and killing the two children trapped inside. Max Gleason, Bley’s husband and father to 2-year-old Lucienne Bley Gleason and 4-month-old Desmond Bley Gleason, was not present for the sentencing, but many family members were in the gallery. Several members of the Gleason family spoke to the court, providing tearful tributes to the three victims and asking that Judge Adams follow the Probation Department’s pre-sentencing report recommendation of three consecutive sentences. “In that single incident, my whole family was erased,” said Max Gleason, in comments read by family members. His mother, Niki Gleason, said the idea of “lumping their lives together” as a concurrent sentence would be hurtful, and his sister, Callie Gleason, said that Dungan’s actions were representative of “young men across the country killing without regard.” Kevin Gleason — Max’s father and grandfather to Lu and Des, as the family called them — fought through tears during
his powerful testimony. “John Dungan is a coward,” he said. “A coward blames the world and everyone in it for their shortcomings. My hope is that he spends the rest of his life in prison.” The prosecution closed by reminding the court of the evidence brought forward during the seven-week trial: Dungan was by all accounts a mentally troubled individual, who was found guilty of stalking an ex-girlfriend months before the incident. After that, he was found in possession of numerous rifles and thousands of rounds of ammo, and he was placed on a GPS-monitoring program. Minutes before crashing on Highway 154, Dungan removed the ankle monitor and threw it into the bushes on the side of the road. Then, when approaching Cold Spring Canyon Bridge, he veered into the opposite lane— gas pedal to the floor — and removed his seatbelt, intent on killing himself and whoever he happened to hit. Deputy District Attorney Wagner said these actions displayed “aggravation and callous disregard,” and that Dungan “never once asked about the victims.” Dungan sat quietly through the comments, eyes locked on the judge’s bench. He spoke for the first time in the entire trial, reading from a folded handwritten note in a deep, hollow, and hoarse voice. He described “coming back from the brink of death” to a waking nightmare and said, “God gave me a second chance,” pausing several times to collect himself. “If there was anything I could do to bring them back, I would,” he said. Judge Adams read the pre-sentencing report, detailing its findings that Dungan’s actions were intentional and that he “posed a danger to the safety of the community” if released. His ruling followed the recommendations of the report, sentencing Dungan to 15 years to life for each of the three counts, to be served consecutively. He will n serve 45 years to life.

ince the Supreme Court opened up the rights of U.S. citizens to obtain concealed weapons permits on June 22, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff ’s Office has received 125 new applications. Of those, three have been denied and the rest are still awaiting final determination. In June, the Supreme Court voted to abolish the “good cause” clause, used by local governments to limit concealed weapons permits only to those who show a good cause for such protection. Judges and jewelry store salespeople fit the profile. In Santa Barbara, Sheriff Bill Brown was notably stingy in issuing such permits; in other jurisdictions, they are more freely disseminated. To apply for a license in Santa Barbara, applicants must submit a Department of Justice background check, a three-page autobiography, and three personal references attesting to one’s good moral character, as well as undergo 16 hours of training and four hours of testing by a psychologist located in Ventura County.
CITY OF BIRMINGHAM SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, Music Director Sheku Kanneh-Mason, cello Under the Supreme Court ruling, Sheriff Brown has 90 days to process application. Given the high volume of applications and staffing shortages, Brown’s department may struggle to meet the court-imposed deadlines. Applicants can also submit applications to the Lompoc and Santa Maria Police chiefs. Prior to June 22, the Sheriff ’s Office had issued 93 concealed weapons permits. —Nick Welsh

Mandated Makeover for Parklets
tate Street’s hodgepodge of parklets will soon get a more uniform look as Santa Barbara hammers out a permanent plan for the downtown promenade. The City Council voted Tuesday to enact design standards for the 44 outdoor spaces, mandating that—for the next two to five years of this “interim” period — new and existing structures must be stained or painted a dark hue that conforms with the historic district’s approved color palette. Prohibited will be enclosures or barriers that exceed 48 inches, and they must not be made of solid material, instead offering visibility through rails or slats. Also not allowed will be turf, carpet, or faux grass; neon or flashing lights; plastic, vinyl, or white-colored furniture; advertising, logos, or promotional materials; or mounted screens or projectors. The council also decreed as part of the interim ordinance that both new and existing parklets need to allow sufficient underside clearance for cleaning and stormwater flow.

ing, enacted a rent structure for the parklets conducting commercial activity in the public right of way. The fees will be based on square-foot usage and is expected to generate around $800,000 a year in revenue, a little more than enough to cover the city’s cost of maintaining and cleaning associated areas. Until the State Street Master Plan is finalized, all parades will keep clear of State Street, the council said. Fire and police officials said the alternatives that have been used thus far—including Cabrillo, Anacapa, Santa Barbara, and Chapala streets—are, from a public safety perspective, actually preferable given their wider thoroughfares and better visibility. Representing opposite ends of the enthusiasm spectrum on the council were Kristen Sneddon and Randy Rowse, who cordially disagreed on the success of the State Street promenade thus far and where it ought to head. “What we’ve created so far is magic,” she said. “The community has made clear again and again that they want the promenade to continue.” Rowse, who fretted over parklet roofs potentially causing a safety hazard in a high-wind event, as well as amplified music blaring to and from individual frontages, accused the council of engaging in “circular conversations” over the interim plan. He suggested more discussion take place before the ordinance was passed and more thought should be given to reopening certain State Street blocks with few to no parklets to car traffic. “A lot of people want their Santa Barbara back,” he said. —Tyler Hayden

COACH: Jack Trigueiro at courtside during his tennis team’s run of 10 CIF championships
record over 14 seasons, winning five Channel League championships. He coached three future NBA players — Victor Bartolome, Jamaal Keith Wilkes, and Don Ford. Wilkes and Ford played on the 1970 team that went undefeated until the CIF semifinals. Trigueiro’s tennis teams achieved unparalleled success from 1965-1995. They won 31 league titles, including 30 in a row, and 10 CIF championships, including a streak of eight from 1988-1995. Two Dons tennis players, his son Tim Trigueiro and Mike Falberg, won junior titles at the U.S. Open. “Tennis is not a team sport, but he had us playing for each other,” Tim Trigueiro said. “My father taught me how to be a man.” Bartolome was a skinny 6'11" center on the Dons basketball teams in 196466. “Coach Trigueiro made me believe in myself,” he said. “He did what was necessary to get the most out of us and build up the strength we’d need later in life.” Bartolome grew to seven feet at Oregon State and went on to play professionally for eight years with the Golden State Warriors and overseas. He worked as an account analyst at UCSB and stayed in touch with Trigueiro. “He’d finish our conversations by saying, ‘I love you, man.’ ” Trigueiro is survived by his wife, Sharon, and sons Tim and Rick.

Efforts to resuscitate Chermak — arrested in Isla Vista on March 5 for burglary and possession of stolen property—were unsuccessful.

Of the IST inmates in county jail,

one has been awaiting transfer since December 2021. Chermak had reportedly been in county jail seven months awaiting treatment. In response to protracted treatment shortages in state psychiatric hospitals, jail officials had launched a competency restoration program of their own inside county jail. That program has 10 patients. Competency—not to be confused with sanity — indicates an ability to assist with one’s own defense. Those deemed IST cannot. The waiting list for IST inmates to get into the Jail Based Competency Treatment Program is typically two weeks to two months, said Zick. By contrast, it typically takes three months to a year to get placed in a state hospital. Zick added that the jail-based program gets faster results. Competency, she said, is typically restored in the jail-based program in 51 days. In state hospitals, she said, the average is 90 days. Santa Barbara judges like Brian Hill have noted in past interviews that many of the inmates found IST have been neither tried nor convicted, yet they have spent more time inside county jail awaiting restoration of their competency than they would have had they served out the sentence for the crimes for which they’d been charged. This, said Hill in a previous interview, constituted a significant civil rights issue. —Nick Welsh

39-Rental-Unit Mixed-Use Project Praised for ‘Poetic’ Use of Space
by Ryan P. Cruz hile three- and four-story mixeduse developments in a Spanish Mediterranean style seem to dominate the most recent attempts at tackling housing in Santa Barbara, one project stands out as doing it “the right way” — at least according to the Historic Landmarks Commission, which gave a glowing review last Wednesday, September 14, to the proposed 39-unit adaptive reuse project on the corner of Chapala and Ortega streets. The project sits at the site of the former Volkswagen dealership, at a property with a deep family connection spanning more than 70 years. The Van Wyk family opened the dealership in the ’50s, and it was operated by family members well into the ’90s. The family still owns the property, and enlisted architect Tom Meaney to design a pedestrianfriendly development that would perfectly fit the character of downtown Santa Barbara. Tom Meaney is the grandson of founder A.C. Van Wyk and the son of Greta Van Wyk and Jack Meaney; the late Garry Van Wyk ran the dealership for decades. At first glance, the proposed design fits the mold of a string of similar mixed-use housing developments making their way through the city’s review boards: three to four stories tall, with the ever-present elements of white stucco, sandstone, and red-tile roofs. But Meaney — who has a background in both architecture and fine art and was driven even more by the fact that this project is a family operation — took it a step further, incorporating new ideas and details into a visually striking take on Santa Barbara’s classic architectural style. “I think it’s absolutely beautiful,” said Commissioner Cass Enberg, who praised Meaney’s team for addressing development priorities such as adaptive reuse of existing structures, creating four buildings spread throughout the space instead of one big mass, and adding walkable paseo and arcade spaces. “It’s just quintessential Santa Barbara,” she said. The words “romantic,” poetic,” and “artis-
tic” were used to describe the corner property’s proposed layout, which includes a reimagining of the existing service bay — a space Meaney said is unique to the property and will be reused as a “cool, industrial loftlike space” — and variations that break up the mass into several structures surrounding a central courtyard. “Mr. Meaney, I consider you to be a modern master, having a firm grasp on the language of Santa Barbara’s architecture, and this is a great example of that work,” said Commissioner Robert Ooley. Both Ensberg and Ooley went as far as to say the design had potential to become a “future historical landmark.” In a city that typically picks apart new developments in drawn-out back-and-forth battles, the Chapala Street project is an example of how planners and city boards can work together to achieve a common goal — even in the strict El Pueblo Viejo Landmark District. While the project received a height exemption, the designers chose to space out the units, offering 39 rentals spread over 30,000 square feet and an additional 5,000 square feet of commercial space. They were also able to provide 27 parking spaces, despite the zoning code not requiring residential parking in the area. Commission Chair Anthony Grumbine called the project “the best building” on Chapala Street. “And I do not take that lightly,” he said. “I just want to hold this up as an example of a building that got a height exception, broke the height limit, and did a great job getting straight through.” The project design was unanimously approved and will return for a final hearing, though the only directions given to Meaney were to address noise mitigation, balcony materials, and detailing on wrought-iron and tile design. Finally, the commission gave a rare green light on creative freedom and encouraged Meaney to feel free to add “even more of a personal touch” to the project. “Have your thumbprint on there, your personal impact,” Commissioner Ensberg said.

CONT’D COU RTESY DMHA A
The Future of Linden Avenue Three Developments Set Stage for New Chapter on Carp’s Main Strip by Ryan P. Cruz arpinteria’s small-town identity may be going through some big changes soon, with three big-thinking developments slated to reshape the look and feel of the main strip on Linden Avenue. In a community typically resistant to change — full of residents not shy about voicing their displeasure with new developments — Carpinteria’s city leadership is learning how to adjust with the times and find ways to modernize the city in a way that keeps the sleepy-beach-town authenticity but doesn’t leave it lost in the past.
THE SURFLINER INN
COU RTESY SU R FLI N ER I N N
In what seems to be the greatest example of the fervor against new developments in Carpinteria, the hotly contested Surfliner Inn has struggled for years to win over the city’s residents. The proposed hotel has gone through countless redesigns, proposals, and adjustments since it was first kicked around City Hall in 2016. The center of the controversy lies in the fact that the 30-to-39-room hotel would be built on city-owned land, on two parking lot parcels on the corner of Linden Avenue and the railroad tracks.
Rendering of the Surfliner Inn
Hearing that the hotel would be built on what is considered by city residents to be “community space” raised the eyebrows of many locals, who crowded public hearings and criticized the idea of public land being used for commercial purposes. In November 2020, a group called the Coalition Against the Railroad Hotel, led by locals Judy Mulford and Marla Daily, penned a letter to the city council, worrying that the project had “grown in size” to the point of overtaking the corridor south of the railroad tracks and a portion of a community garden adjacent to the property. “This is the people’s property,” Mulford said. The same letter alleges numerous “violations to Carpinteria’s General Plan,” citing that the land was acquired for public use and should remain that way. Since then, the opposition to the project has grown stronger, despite several attempts by the developers to work with the city’s residents, reduce the size of the project, and even adjust plans to keep the community garden untouched. The development team is headed by a group of local families — led by Andy Morris, Matt and Jim Taylor, Whit Hollis, and Jack and Jeff Theimer — who were handpicked because of their connection to the community and willingness to create something more than just a money grab. Each family has experience with hospitality and real estate, with the Theimer family being known for developing Storke Ranch in Goleta, Ennisbrook in Montecito, and Beaver Creek in Colorado. The Surfliner, they contend, is a local venture and will
be a step toward sustainable tourism, based around the community and walkable areas, as opposed to out-of-town developers dropping in and creating a big-city tourist trap. Despite attempts to extend an olive branch to the opposition to Rendering of 700 Linden Avenue no avail, the developers have won 64 spaces, then 48. Eventually, the final approved plans over city staff and leadership who say Carpinteria needs to included a 20-space parking lot. adjust to growing trends up and down the coast. “I cannot make those findings for a modification.

If it fails, the project returns to the regular city review process for approval.

700 LINDEN AVENUE (FORMERLY AUSTIN’S HARDWARE) Much further along the development pipeline, and by contrast more widely accepted than the Surfliner Inn, is the 700 Linden Avenue project — a full city block of adaptive reuse retail and commercial space that will house a hodgepodge of eateries, coffee shops, markets, and a rooftop bar. The project is fully approved through Carpinteria’s Planning Commission and Architectural Review Board, where it received near unanimous approval despite concerns over the size of the development and parking modifications granted due to the “public benefit” provided by the project. The only member of either board to vote against the project was Planning Commission Chair Jane Benefield, who was concerned that the board was being too generous with its concessions because they were all in favor of the development. The project was initially required to provide
Right across the street from 700 Linden is the former site of the Palms Restaurant. Originally built as an 18-room hotel when it was constructed in 1912, the current owners from the Miramar Group are looking to bring back the hospitality aspect with a proposed 17-room hotel/bar/restaurant. The project — which was designed by architect Kevin Moore, who serves as chair of Santa Barbara’s Architectural Board of Review — was scheduled for its first conceptual review with the Carpinteria Planning Commission earlier this month, but the hearing was postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date. Early designs show a ground-level lobby and reception area with a bar and restaurant, along with six rooms facing the surrounding street. The upper level would include the additional 11 rooms.

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

PAT BAGLEY, THE SALT L AKE TRIBUNE
Military Aid Essential
’m grateful to our Congressmember Salud Carbajal for supporting military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. I urge him to continue to support both. I grew up in Santa Barbara but have spent the last six years living in Ukraine. Russia’s invasion forced my family to relocate — and we were the fortunate ones. My wife’s family is from Mariupol. While I grew up celebrating my childhood birthday parties at Goleta Beach, my wife spent her childhood enjoying the beaches around Mariupol. The difference is that while I can still return to bring my little son to Thousand Steps to explore the tidepools, the beaches in Mariupol are now a mined wasteland, my wife’s childhood home is a pile of rubble, and many of her friends and family are dead. The military aid that the United States provides is essential in preventing the mass death and war crimes that occurred in Mariupol and other cities from becoming the horrific reality for millions of other Ukrainians. Negotiations can only succeed when both sides are ready to come to the table. Sadly, Putin is not yet ready to negotiate. Pressing Ukraine to negotiate in lieu of providing military assistance is to ask them to make one-sided concessions to an evil dictator who is bent on their destruction. If Santa Barbara were being destroyed, would we really ask our military to stand back and tell our government to negotiate with Putin in the hopes that he would voluntarily withdraw?

Fossil-Free Diablo Power
overnor Gavin Newsom and the California Legislature deserve kudos for the decision to keep Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant operational for another five years past its originally scheduled closure in 2025. It is undoubtedly the case that, when the new closure date is closer in another five years or so, this vital, environmentally friendly component of California’s comprehensive energy delivery system
will again remain open. It is probable that Diablo Canyon will now keep providing fossil-free energy for decades. Anyone who considers himself or herself an environmentalist should support retention of Diablo Canyon Power Plant. As reported in the recent Independent article, it currently provides about 11 percent of the state’s total electricity. Moreover, Diablo Canyon currently provides about 17 percent of the state’s zero-carbon electricity. How it would be possible — now and for decades — to increase California’s zero-carbon electricity production fundamentally and simultaneously to eliminate 17 percent of existing zero-carbon electricity is an open question. Now is the time to expand, not diminish, use of nuclear energy. Retention of Diablo Canyon Power Plant is part of the answer to a reduced fossil-fuel future.

Fighting Back with Votes
uring the January 6 hearings, we’ve heard from former members of the Trump administration and Republican state officials about how Trump and his allies worked together to try and overthrow our democracy because the 2020 presidential election didn’t go their way. Now, they’re working to make sure all of our elections go their way in the future, whether we vote for them or not. Already, Trumpers in office have changed state laws to weaken our freedom to vote and threatened Republican election administrators who won’t go along with them. Now, they’re running candidates for key election administration offices, from secretary of state to county clerk. Should they win their elections this fall, these officials won’t hesitate to overturn future elections if they or their MAGA allies lose. This completely undermines the tenets of our democracy. The only way we’re going to protect our elections is to fight back and make our voices heard. We have to cast our ballots in the upcoming midterm elections. It’s up to us to hold election deniers accountable at the polls and elect democracy defenders up and down the ballot on November 8.

obituaries Kenneth Orrin Minor 7/24/1938 - 9/6/2022
Kenneth O. Minor passed away peacefully, at home with his family on September 6, 2022. He lived a full life, following Jesus and loving others. He led by example and shared life lessons. In his last days, he told us this story: “Write the word ‘kitchen’,” Lloyd Orton said to 15 year old Ken Minor. And these four words changed the course of Ken’s life. “How many times in your life can you recollect four words having such impact?” Ken would ask his friends. Mr. Orton, a man from church, was so impressed by Ken’s block print, popular among architects, that he went on to ask Ken to draw up some plans for a house. And although Ken ultimately failed at this project, he later became a successful architect, designing for over 40 years, providing architectural and planning services in many different types of work, from small additions and remodels to major commercial projects. Orton later got Ken his very first job, as a draftsman. When one of Ken’s friends commented on the importance of seeing potential and investing in a teenager’s life, Ken nodded and said, “That’s my point.” Ken went on to marry the one love of his life, Loretta, and they had a gentle and kind marriage of 63 years. Together, they navigated through life, leaning on each other and trusting God. Loretta supported Ken while he attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo from 1959 to 1963. But over the years, his career was more than successful. This wasn’t how Ken measured the worth of a man, though. He believed in being kind to strangers, loving his family well, investing in the lives of others, often those that society had written off. He would see the potential in another, nurture and encourage it until that person would come to know and believe in their own strengths and worthiness. In turn, those friends would walk away a more complete person. After his career in architecture, Ken focused on his hobby of woodworking and boat making. As a boatwright, he was precise and exacting, turning humble pieces of wood into a beautiful masterpiece. He saw the potential. His beautiful wooden sailboat, Morning Song, started as an idea in 1989 and eventually launched at the Santa Barbara Harbor in 2016, surrounded by family and friends from all over the 18

Ken was known all over town and was loved and respected for his quiet, contemplative presence, thoughtfulness, and great kindness. As a young dad, his smile was often under wraps, closed mouth and quiet. When he became Gramps, his smile opened up and often ended with a laugh. Toward the end of his life, that big toothy smile and deep hearty chuckle had been given freely and easily to his family and many friends. After his diagnosis, Ken decided he wasn’t going to “fight cancer”. Anyone who knew his true character, knew he wasn’t one for a fight. Instead, he lived with cancer, savoring time with those he loved. And in the end he even learned to “two-step” to maneuver about. After 84 years of life, he finally learned to dance. Ken modeled godliness for his family, showing us that everyone is important and worthy of love, attention and care. He lived every aspect of his life unto the Lord and he was humble in his successes, giving glory to God the Father. He made sacrifices so his daughters, Donna and Teresa, could have music lessons and go to summer camp. He made time for his grandkids, Joshua, Jacob, Jessica, Harrison and Christine, and their projects. He always saved some bacon or turkey for his good dog, Charlie. He taught us to love God, love others and love nature. He is survived by his loving wife, Loretta and his two daughters and their families: Daughter Donna and son-in-law Gregory Venzor Grandson Joshua and his wife Colleen Venzor, baby due January 2023 (great grandbaby) Grandson Jacob and his wife Fatima Venzor Granddaughter Christine Venzor Daughter Teresa and son-in-law David Thornburgh Granddaughter Jessica and her husband Stephen Ramirez, son Riley Fox (great grandson) Grandson Harrison and his wife Linda Thornburgh, son Felix Luna (great grandson) We’ll be gathering at Coast Community Church on Saturday, September 24, for one last “Coffee at Renaud’s” followed by a brief service of praise and worship to the God who now holds our beloved.

Max Leslie Chase Weiss 8/12/1933 - 8/22/2022
On August 22, 2022, Max Leslie Chase Weiss, retired mathematics professor at University of California Santa Barbara and former provost of the College of Creative Studies, died suddenly of natural causes in his home in Goleta. Prof. Weiss was born in Salt Lake City on August 12, 1933 to Simon and Clarissa (née Chase) Weiss. He grew up in Utah and was admitted to Yale University in 1951, receiving a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and philosophy in 1955. He earned a master’s degree in mathematics at Cornell University in 1958 and went on to teach mathematics at Reed College in Portland, Oregon for two years. The University of Washington awarded him a PhD degree in mathematics in 1962. After teaching a year at the university he received a National Science Fellowship which allowed him to do research for a year at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey. In 1964 he joined the mathematics faculty at UCSB. In 1967 he became a member of the founding faculty for the College of Creative Studies at the university. He served as associate provost of the college 197177 and 1983-84 and was provost from 1984 to 1989. He enriched the college and UCSB by developing projects like the Young Scholars Program and the Prize Competition for gifted high school students. Heart disease prompted him to take early retirement in 1991. Max was married to Patricia Friedmann in 1954 and they had three children, Karen, Karl, and Frieda. After this marriage ended, he married Karen Knudsen in 1971. To this union were born three children, Erik (died in infancy), Ellen, and Dan. Survivors are his wife Karen, Karen Miller (A.J.), Karl Weiss (Irene), Frieda Weiss (Dale White), Ellen Weiss, Dan Weiss, and his grandchildren: Andrew Miller, Brooke Miller, Alanna White, Marinda White, and Rowan Weiss. Max took great joy in teaching, especially in the College of Creative Studies, advising his PhD students, and mentoring young mathematically talented children. He enjoyed computer programming and, in his retirement, worked for Bartz Technology in that capacity. He loved word play, music, science, crossword puzzles, and his family. He is also known for running a marathon, composing for the piano, singing, developing a
profound philosophy about reality, reading fun books aloud with his wife, and goofing around with his kids. He had a caring heart, a generous spirit, and a creative sense of humor. One of his many wise/Weiss sayings was, “I wanted to be somebody else, but I needed to be me.” Friends who wish to honor Max’s memory are invited to donate to Common Cause, ACLU, or the Southern Poverty Law Center. No services are planned.
Jagmohan Tulsidas Hiranandani 8/29/2022
On the evening of August 29, 2022, with family by his side, Jagmohan Tulsidas Hiranandani (aka Jack Hira), passed away peacefully at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital from complications of multiple myeloma cancer. Jack was 74 years old. He was preceded in death by his parents, Tulsidas and Devi Hiranandani, and a sister Mira Khilnani. Jack is survived by his beloved wife of 48 years Susan, son Daniel (fiancée Shaunah), daughter Jennifer (Justin), granddaughters Hailey, Laila, and Paisley Stuler, brothers Dhanraj, Shyam, Jagdish, sister Renu, their respective spouses, many nieces, nephews and extended family in the U.S. and India. Jack was born in Benares, India (Varanasi) the fourth child of six. At age five his family moved to Bombay (Mumbai) where he grew up and attended school. After studying commerce in college, he left India for Hong Kong in 1969 and joined a custom tailoring company, Taj Mahal. After working in Hong Kong for 10 months, Jack came to the U. S. and traveled throughout the country taking orders for men’s suits and shirts. Less than two years later (in 1972) he decided to open his own business with his best friend, Hiro Nasta, and Fashion Tailors was begun in Santa Barbara. Leading into a retail store, Fashion Tailors and Imports, opened downtown in December 1973. In 1973 Jack unexpectedly met Susan Bailey at a local grocery store. After becoming friends, they were inseparable. Married in 1974, they began an extraordinary journey together. He was a jack-of-all trades and an entrepreneur, and throughout life his curiosity led to many interests. A few achievements were opening several retail stores (including Me ‘n’ You), plus wholesale, manufacturing and import
businesses. Jack then went into real estate (licensed in 1987), construction, and property management. He was forever an optimist. To him there were no obstacles, only opportunities. Their daughter Jennifer Devi was born in 1982, and son Daniel Bailey completed the family in 1986. The children were Jack’s pride and joy. He never missed a chance to attend Jennifer’s musical performances or Daniel’s baseball games, or learn how to use a new tech device. In 2007 he welcomed Justin Stuler into the family as a new son-in-law, and was blessed over the years with three precious granddaughters. Last year he happily met his future daughter-in-law, Shaunah Stolaroff, and was looking forward to their wedding next year. Jack was a people person, taking a genuine interest in anyone he met. Family and food (it will bring us together) were very important. Taking time to connect—along with offering enough to eat—was his true generous nature. Encouraging others with Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds—plus Action—was a lifelong motto he excelled at. Since 2014, attending the Santa Barbara Vedanta Temple was an important connection to his upbringing. Traveling, hiking, taking long walks at Shoreline Park, studying economics and reading were a few of his other passions. The family gratefully thanks Dr. Alan Rosenblum for his considerate care of Jack, Dr. Robert Wright, Laura Cadwell, the incredible nurses at Cottage Hospital’s Infusion Suite—”Jack’s Angels”—and the doctors and nurses who attended to him during his final days. Jack will remain in our hearts forever. McDermott-Crockett Mortuary handled the cremation. A memorial service will begin at 2:30pm on Saturday, September 24th at the Vedanta Temple, 927 Ladera Ln, Montecito, CA 93108. A celebration of life will be held in October and details will be shared on www.jackhira.com. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite charity in Jack’s memory.

obituaries Ken Kuencer
1/22/1952 - 8/14/2022
Ken Kuencer passed away peacefully and suddenly on August 14, 2022 in Aspendell, CA. Family and friends are saddened by the loss of this kind and patient man who was loved by so many. He was born in Long Beach, CA in 1952 and spent over 20 years in Santa Barbara, CA before retiring to the small mountain community of Aspendell, west of Bishop in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. He loved the ocean and was an avid sailor during his years in Long Beach and Santa Barbara. Ken lived a simple life and followed his passion for the outdoors. The Eastern Sierras had been his refuge since childhood and there were many hiking, camping, backpacking and off-roading adventures that provided good memories for many. Ken leaves behind his 3 children Heather Flom (Brian), Chris Owen (Debbie) and Serenity Nichols (Nathan), 8 grandchildren Breanna Owen, Kevyn Crocker, Spencer Owen, Kayla Owen, Macy Graham (Hayden), Kirstyn Owen, Austyn Nichols and Deegan Nichols, greatgrandchild Isabella Owen, sister Jan Wagener (Bob), nephew Jeremy Bucko (Beth), niece Kristin McLean (John), father Walt Kuencer, dear cousins and many friends. His mother Lois Kuencer and grandson Cody Flom passed before him. As a licensed Land Surveyor at Penfield & Smith (P&S) in Santa Barbara, Ken was responsible for numerous topographic and boundary surveys throughout the county during his career. His work was essential for many construction projects at local ranches, estates and urban properties and although his work accomplishments were impressive, the impact he had on the lives around him was far more important. He provided mentorship and support to many colleagues and the number of lifelong friends Ken accumulated speaks to his legacy. Aspendell brought Ken 20 great years of “retirement” life and few outside his Eastern Sierra friends and neighbors were aware of his meaningful contributions to the community. He was a welcomed and respected voice of reason and humble community pillar. He served as the Fire Chief of Aspendell’s volunteer fire department for several years, performed water quality testing and record keeping for the Aspendell Mutual Water Company, and participated in the community fire committee that supported the reorganization of the fire department as its own nonprofit organization facilitating further funding, growth and capacity to serve neighboring subdivisions that previously had no fire protection. Subsequently, he effectively became an

Ken was also one’s ideal neighbor who on his daily walks kept an eye open for any problems that might arise like a downed tree, a broken water line or the mischief of a hungry bear. He was a welcome sight when walking his Weimaraner dogs and would always cheerfully wave and say hello with a friendly smile. Ken was genuinely loved and respected by those he encountered and will be deeply missed and remembered. *A memorial service will be held in Goleta, in January 2023.

Robert George Alexiades
5/6/1932 - 11/11/2021
George Alexiades, 89, of Santa Barbara CA, passed away on November 11, 2021 in the care of hospice while surrounded by his loving family. George was born on May 6, 1932, in Maroussi, a suburb of Athens, Greece to Theodore Constantine and Theodora (Christodoulu) Alexiades. George grew up in Greece with his sisters, Angeliki and Mary, during the Second World War before immigrating to the United States with his family in 1948 and settling in New York City. He was drafted into the Army in 1950, serving 2 years active duty in The Korean War. He was Honorably Discharged with the rank of Staff Sergeant. George then studied theater, attending The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. He eventually made his way to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. He then became a regular dancer at the Intersection Folk Dance Coffee House in Los Angeles, later joining the Hellenic Dancers and performing regularly at special events. With the encouragement from friends and family, George opened The Plaka in Santa Barbara in 1970. The Plaka quickly grew from a small Greek taverna where people would gather to folk dance, to becoming a culturally authentic Greek meeting place where you came to eat, drink, dance, and be entertained by belly dancers and George’s famous Table Dance. And sometimes plate breaking, OPA!! After 2 decades, George decided to close the Plaka and follow his passion for travel and adventure. He climbed Mount Whitney, Mount Everest base camp and Mount Kilimanjaro. He was a cycling enthusiast and would often ride his bicycle from Santa Barbara to Malibu. When he wasn’t adventuring, he loved to spend his days gardening, working out at the gym and enjoying time with his friends and family. He was a great friend, a loving father and an adoring grandfather. George is survived by his three children Theodore, Alexis and George II, and grandchildren, Abigail, Anna, Zoe & Weston. We miss you deeply. A celebration of George’s life will be held in October in Santa Barbara. If you were a friend of George’s and would like to attend, please email CelebrateGeorgeAlexiades@gmail.com for details.

Brian Ellis Daily 1957-2022
A Water Baby
BY M A R L A D A I LY rian Ellis Daily was born on June 26,
1957, in Allison Park, Pennsylvania, the third child behind his siblings, Marla and Gordon. Two years later, the family moved to Santa Barbara where his father, a research psychologist, had been transferred. Unbeknownst to the family, the house they rented sight unseen at 226 East Mountain Drive was the central hub of Bobby Hyde’s Mountain Drive Bohemian community. In 1963, the Daily family moved to a home they bought on Middle Road. Less than a year later, the Coyote Fire burned through the Mountain Drive community, and their Middle Road house served for weeks as the evacuation hub for the Mountain Drive–rs, with families, friends, children, and several dozen cats, dogs, and horses spread out over the property. At age 7, Brian delighted in being the morning doughnut passer-outer. With the move to Middle Road, Brian began surfing at Hammond’s and attended Montecito Union followed by Laguna Blanca. When it came time for high school—and with her elder daughter at UCSB—the now-divorced Natalie Daily decided her sons should be bicultural and bilingual, so in 1968 she packed her children and a AAA road map into her blue 1965 Mustang and drove to Guadalajara, Mexico, where she rented a house and enrolled the boys in summer school. This routine continued until the summer of 1973 when she kept on driving—to San Jose, Costa Rica. Natalie had learned of an incredible, private high school called Country Day, run by the finest teachers imported from the U.S. and financed by the American criminal financier Robert Vesco to educate his children. Gordon and Brian were enrolled as soon as they arrived. Two years later, Natalie and Gordon returned to Santa Barbara, but Brian chose to stay and live with a local family. At school he assembled and sold Italian submarine sandwiches to the students at lunchtime to finance his weekend bus tickets in search of surf spots. Costa Rica’s “pura vida” was infused into his veins. Water-baby through and through, after graduation from Country Day, Brian returned to Santa Barbara and built his first dive boat, Tamarindo. Tamarindo was lost in the Potato Patch between Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz Islands when his heavy load of urchins shifted. By incredible circumstance, a UCSB researcher was at Fraser Point, saw the boat flip over, summoned help from Just Love anchored in Forney’s Cove, and Brian was rescued. Next came Brian’s Wilson dive boat Ysleña. After years of service, he towed the boat north to dive near Fort Bragg. With Brian underwater gathering urchins, the boat dragged anchor, his air hose wrapped around the propeller, and Ysleña went on the rocks. Brian swam to safety, and the vessel was salvaged. Brian moved on to purchase Deborah Ann, an aft-cabin Radon. He sold the vessel when an opportunity came up to buy his most recent dive boat, Jan Marie. In October 1987, a friend asked Brian if he would “sit in” for him on a dive to San Nicolas Island—his wife was expected to give birth. Always one to help a friend, Brian agreed. While returning from the island in heavy seas, Bounty’s load shifted and the vessel sank midway between San Nicolas and Santa Cruz islands with three divers aboard. One mayday went out at 6 p.m. It was picked up by the Vail & Vickers crew aboard Vaquero II while on a cattle run down

the back side of Santa Cruz Island—then silence. The crew relayed the mayday to the U.S. Coast Guard, who later informed the family it was dark and too late to initiate a search. The following Halloween morning, with private aircraft arranged by Brian’s siblings from Channel Islands Aviation, Aspen Helicopters, and fish-spotter pilot Johan Huelman, two of the three Bounty divers were spotted treading water in heavy seas just before noon the following day. Brian had tied a bright hotpink swordfish buoy on a long rope to his ankle, which led to their discovery. Green dye packets were thrown from the spotter plane, the location was relayed to a Coast Guard helicopter, and within the hour, the two survivors were lifted from the water. The third diver was never found. Through binoculars, Brian’s siblings anxiously watched from separate circling planes as the helicopter lifted two men out of the heavy seas in a hoist. When Brian’s blonde hair reflected in the midday sun, we knew—Brian had survived. The Coast Guard said it was an unprecedented rescue 16 hours after a mayday. It was in 1988 that Brian bought his first of several parcels on the Osa Peninsula in Cabo Mata Palo, Costa Rica, home to the premier surf spot Backwash Bay. Thus Encanta La Vida was born. Spanish for “enchanted life,” it literally translates to “loving life.” Brian began building his dream—a relaxed jungle adventure lodge that was home to monkeys and macaws, coatis and sloths, with a front yard expanse of exceptional surf. For more than 30 years, Brian shared his love of the jungle and his simple Costa Rican way of life—Pura Vida. Ten months after being diagnosed with metastasized spinal melanoma, Brian died on August 23, 2022, at his home in Carpinteria. He was predeceased in death by his son, Tyler (1995-2015). He leaves behind his siblings, Marla and Gordon, and an incredible community of best and beloved friends: Kirk, Katie, Yorleney, Steven, Timmy, Larry, Pat, Maire, Danny, Karen, Shane, Pierre, Carlos, Marco, Harry, Laura, Bill, Cory, and many others. A paddle-out and fishermen’s parade of boats, followed by a gathering at the n Carriage Museum, is being planned.
Born in Santa Barbara to Ramon Zarate and Teresa Angel, Ramon was the 3rd of 8 children. As a 2nd generation true native of Santa Barbara, he attended Franklin Elementary, Santa Barbara Junior High and graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1970. Shortly afterward he joined the Local Painters and Allied Trades Union where he was a loyal member of the union and served as president for a time. He was an active union painter for over 40 years. In 1973 he married Patricia Thompson and they had 2 daughters, Reyna and Tracy. Ramon (aka: Ray, Angel, Cardine, High Booty, and Poppy) was a dedicated family man, an avid fisherman and a lover of old cars. He spent much of his life fishing for the “Big One” in many destinations but loved Lake Cachuma (he rarely missed a trout derby) and the Santa Barbara Waterfront above all. Upon his retirement from the union in the 2000’s he fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning a bait shop on Stearns Wharf which he named ANGEL’S BAIT AND TACKLE and built his dream home in Mexico. Ramon was always restoring or buying and selling classic cars and rarely owned less than 5 vehicles at a time. He was a classic just like his cars; animated, funny and full of life. He loved life, people and was known by many. But the greatest joy in life were his loving daughters, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Sadly and surprisingly he was taken from us too soon due to health complications from a kidney transplant earlier this year. He passed away at the home of his sister Martha Angel surrounded by family and loved ones. A special thank you to Martha and her family for providing her home in those final days, Pueblo Del Rey for funeral arrangements, Visiting Nurses for assistance and most specially for round the clock care by his devoted daughters and eldest granddaughter. It was an amazing expression of love. Ramon was preceded in death by his parents; Ramon Zarate and Teresa Angel and brothers; Pantaleon and Alphonso. He is survived
by his 2 daughters; Reyna Sorenson Angel (Bobby) and Tracy Alvaro Angel (Rudy), exwife Patricia Angel. Grandchildren; Ciela Angel (Marco), Paloma, Izabella, Santino & Serena. Great grandchildren; Amarina and Isaiah. Siblings; Clara, Luis, Robert, Jesus and Martha and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Santa Barbara will never be quite the same without you Ray! He was a legend and legends live on forever. Services will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows Church – 21 East Sola St. Rosary Service Tuesday, September 27, 2022 7:00 pm Funeral Mass Wednesday September 28, 2022 at 10:00 am Burial at Calvary Cemetery and Reception following at the Veteran’s Hall 112 W. Cabrillo Blvd. all are welcome! In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Neal Taylor Center at Lake Cachuma
Richard J Avila Jr
6/30/1962 - 9/3/2022
Richard was born & raised in Santa Barbara, the eldest child of Richard Sr. & Barbara Avila. He attended SBHS, where he met his high school sweetheart and future wife Irma Gonzalez they were married on December 24th, 1988. He battled Leukemia for two long years.

When I came in to try the delicious Super Cucas Week Burrito, it was during a wave of unusually high temps. The humidity was thick, rain was in the forecast, and a gray apocalyptic feeling hung in the air. Ducking into Super Cucas on Micheltorena with the familiar side porch teeming with locals fresh off work and in for their favorite Mexican fare, I was instantly comforted. Even more so when I took a bite of their massive burrito special filled with rice, beans, onions, cilantro, and carne asada. The tender carne asada is my favorite, but you can choose from any of their mouth-watering meat options, including pastor, pollo, or carnitas. Whatever you choose, I definitely recommend slathering this beautiful creation in their perfectly balanced salsa verde. As I continued to indulge, a tropical drizzle began to fall. Was the humidity breaking? Although I can’t predict the weather, of this I am certain: A Super Cucas burrito is sure to satisfy. The tasty taqueria opened in 1991 and now has three Santa Barbara locations. Winner of the Indy’s Best of Santa Barbara® Burrito year in and year out, Cucas remains a nourishing constant in a changing world. —Rebecca Horrigan
EL ZARAPE MEXICAN FOOD:
BREAKFAST PASILLA BURRITO (THE #7)
Available during normal hours. 626 W. Micheltorena St., (805) 962-4028; and 2030 Cliff Drive, Ste. 1A, (805) 966-3863; supercucasrestaurant.com
Full disclosure: I have eaten more El Zarape breakfast burritos than any other to-go item in Santa Barbara, only partially because I live on the Westside. Usually, I opt for the straightforward egg, rice, and beans, so this Burrito Week variation is kind of like trading in your Hyundai for a Lexus. Gone are the plebeian — if deliciously filling — rice and beans, replaced by potatoes that would delight as home fries all on their own. But the #7 burrito has more than just starch ballast on its wellplancha-ed tortilla. It stars pasilla chiles, grilled, but still giving that good green crunch. Then there’s a heaping helping of avocado, offering lots of nutty creaminess, and a healthy melt of cheese guaranteed to goo into strings. Egg also gets grilled and woven into the mix; El Zarape always serves its burritos portioned so you get a bit of every ingredient in each pleasing bite. Owner Raul Gil and his team won a Foodie Award way back in 2016 and have been open for two decades, so their well-loved local joint isn’t the trendiest or prettiest spot. But if you want to kick off your day with a sigh of contentment, start here. And while all the salsas are stellar, the kicky green tomatillo matches the color and flavor profile of the #7 best. —George Yatchisin

SANTA BARBARA FOOD CONNECTION: BIRRIA BURRITO
Santa Barbara Food Connection is now open where the old Dave’s Dogs was located near the top of Milpas Street’s commercial corridor. Joe Silva started the Connection as a food truck and ran it for six strong years before moving into a brick-and-mortar location this summer. He now serves authentic Mexican cuisine as well as bacon burgers and fully loaded fries. The Birria Burrito came with the stewed meat’s traditional partner of consommé — which is the birria broth — as well as freshly fried chips and salsa. Silva wraps up his deliciously tender birria with a hefty amount of fried cheese plus rice, beans, cilantro, and onion into a tortilla that’s crisped on the griddle. The key to pairing the burrito’s light crunchiness is dipping it into the warm consommé, squeezing fresh lime wedge, and dolloping on some salsa de aguacate. Enjoy it with one of the ice-cold aguas frescas that Santa Barbara Food Connection regularly sells. —Xavier Pereyra

HOME PLATE GRILL TRAINWRECK & G-TOWN BREAKFAST BURRITOS

REBECC A HORRIGAN
O T I R BUR
Hidden behind a 7-Eleven in the western Goleta neighborhood of El Encanto Heights, the Home Plate Grill is an elemental American diner. The kitchen’s sizzling griddle is not hidden from the smattering of tables and booths, nor are the extra napkin dispensers, shelves of condiments, and bulletin board of community flyers. There’s a sports twist too, with live games and/or highlight reels flickering on the TVs as ’90s rock music provides the soundtrack. The formula feels perfectly functional as the restaurant approaches its seventh year in business. A former construction professional, Ken Johnston opened the restaurant in 2016 to be close to his brother, Rusty Johnston. Back in 2008, Rusty and his wife, Amanda, renovated The Falls, a longtime dive bar in the same strip mall, into the Roundin’ Third Sports Bar. But then Rusty died right after Ken opened Home Plate, leaving Amanda to run the bar. Home Plate always participates in both Burger Week and Burrito Week, and this year’s two breakfast burritos are the Trainwreck — a peppery, creamy mix of eggs, bacon, sausage gravy, tater tots, and cheddar cheese that goes great with their orange salsa — and the G-Town, an avocado- and meat-forward combo of eggs, tri-tip, Italian sausage, Ortega chilis, grilled jalapeños, and cheddar cheese. “That one’s more for hangovers,” Ken told me, pointing to the Trainwreck, and then aimed at the G-Town. “And that one’s more spicy.” Loaded with proteins, carbs, big flavors, and complex textures, they’d both work for hangovers, or just for starting your day deliciously, with no need for lunch. —Matt Kettmann
Available 8 a.m.-2 p.m. daily. 7398 Calle Real, Ste. C, Goleta; (805) 845-3323; homeplategoleta.com
(PLUS MEAT OPTIONS)
It isn’t every day you take a first bite that effectively arrests all of your senses at once — rarer still to indulge in a burrito that manages to capitalize on that first-bite feel with every subsequent offering. Enter: Los Agaves’ Garden Burrito. The beloved Santa Barbara establishment (with locations on De la Vina, Milpas, and in Goleta) has turned out another noteworthy, tortilla-wrapped delicacy that deserves the highest praise from herbivores like myself. As its name suggests, the Garden Burrito is full of veggies that walk the fine line between taste and texture. Grilled zucchini, green and red bell peppers, and carrots, all perfectly prepared, lend this burrito the utmost flavor with a subtle crunch to boot. Add pinto beans and Monterey Jack cheese to this melty medley and witness a burrito that is truly and transcendentally greater than the sum of its parts. For those who can’t be without meat, Los Agaves’ al pastor, chicken, or carnitas burritos should satisfy your carnivorous cravings. Pro tip: Pair your burrito with a bottled Coke and Los Agaves’ legendary salsa bar for a superior dining experience at a Santa Barbara restaurant that importantly prioritizes quality food and service. This Burrito Week, one thing is unmistakably clear: Los Agaves understood the assignment. —Don Brubaker
FOXTAIL KITCHEN & BAR: FALAFEL BURRITO
Available 11 a.m.-5 p.m. for dine-in only, at the 600 N. Milpas St., 2911 De la Vina St., and 7024 Market Place Dr. in Goleta locations; los-agaves.com
Nestled between the Palace Café and Rascal’s on Cota Street, Foxtail Kitchen sits on one of the hippest little side streets in Santa Barbara, just around the corner yet worlds away from the hustle and bustle of State Street. When you step into Foxtail Kitchen, you know you’re in a locals’ joint, with twinkling lights, wood-paneled walls, and friendly bartenders. While they specialize in Mediterranean fare, there’s something for everyone on the menu, from the Make N Bacon burger to a variety of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free items. The only vegan selection on our roster of Burrito Week entries made my mouth water before I even arrived. I’ve had Foxtail’s falafels before, and knew I was in for a non-traditional treat. Savory falafel balls coalesce with tahini sauce (tahini, tomato, cucumber, and lemon juice), hummus, romaine lettuce, and cucumber, all wrapped up in a super-sized pita that’s grilled for a touch of extra crunch. Served with extra tahini and super-spicy habibi sauce on the side, the falafel burrito is a vegan delight that will satisfy the hungriest of palates. —Sarah Sinclair

MAT T KET TMANN
DOWNTOWN OW LIVE
It’s no surprise that the chicken and al pastor burritos are the most popular specialties served at the original Los Arroyos Restaurant on Figueroa Street — so much so that they’re known simply as the Runaway. Chef/founder Tony Arroyo prepares the classical Mexican meal-in-one with a perfect mixture of grilled chicken or grilled pork, paired with brown beans, rice, Jack cheese, onions, cilantro, and guacamole. Be sure to accompany your burrito with at least one of the three salsas, made fresh daily: a mild pico gallo, the smooth avocado, or the spicier quemada. I would also recommend ordering one of their great salads. The Mama Ensalada is my favorite, full of seasonal veggies and refreshing flavors. It goes great with either of the burritos. It’s always a joy to eat at Los Arroyos. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the kitchen crew turns out an amazing variety of dishes quickly and beautifully presented. But this is Burrito Week, so take a friend, order one of each—chicken and al pastor — and share. Whether you eat inside the pleasant, tiled dining room, or al fresco at the outside parklet, you will leave happy and satisfied. —Marianne Partridge

At Yona Redz, the line goes out the door and down to the corner on busy nights.Expect no different during Burrito Week, when they’re serving an outstanding Birria des Res burrito from 5 p.m. until closing — or earlier, if they run out. The popular restaurant is on the State Street Promenade block anchored by Joe’s Café on one end and Hana Kitchen on the other. On a breezy September afternoon, the flowers and leaves from a tree overhead drifted down onto a savory example of what slowcooking can do for a cut of beef shoulder. In this secret family recipe from his mother’s mother, owner Jonathan Estrada would only admit to guajillo chiles, California chiles (aka Anaheim chiles), “and some spices” as making up the deep-red broth where the beef simmers for hours. Peruano beans, Spanish rice, melty cheese, leaves of cilantro, and crunchy onions are tucked into the burrito, all wrapped in a tortilla, saffron-colored from being dipped in the broth. If you order consommé on the side for another few bucks, you’ll get a helping of the broth the meat was braised in for dipping. Out of this world. The restaurant also has vegetarian options if you really must skip the brisket, as well as what looks to be a cheese-lovers’ menu of tacos, and even ramen. Only the Birria des Res is part of the Burrito Week deal, though they do serve Birria de Chivo on the weekend. —Jean Yamamura

AL PASTOR BURRITO
RYAN P. CRUZ
o t i r r u B r o t s a P Al Sitting outside on Taqueria Santa Barbara’s curbside patio on State Street, watching people shuffle down the red-bricked sidewalk on a sunny afternoon, their signature marinated pork al pastor burrito somehow tastes even better than usual. Ever since the family-owned restaurant opened its doors across the street from The Granada Theatre in 2020, it’s been one of my go-to spots when my al pastor craving kicks into high gear. The spit-roasted, spicy bits of freshly sliced pork stuffed inside a warm tortilla alongside beans, rice, cheese, cilantro, and onions comes with your choice of homemade salsas, but the must-try is their smoky, sweet, and silky pineapple-based salsa. Its slightly sweet but subtly spicy bite and creamy texture is a perfect contrast to the deep all pastor marinade, and a testament to the fact that pineapple and pork belong together forever. Grab a burrito and a beverage — they serve beers, wine in a can, specialty cocktails, and aguas frescas — any day from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. —Ryan P. Cruz

NACHO BURRITO Eating Padaro Beach Grill’s Nacho Burrito, I was confused. Not by the burrito itself — as a tasty, tortilla-wrapped composition of homemade chili, crushed tortilla chips, sour cream, cheese, avocado, and cabbage, it made all the sense in the world. No, I was confused that the concept of a nacho burrito like the other categories of the handheld meal — breakfast, California, veggie, bean and cheese, etc. — hasn’t caught on as a more common menu item. The only other place that has one, at least that I can think of, is Taco Bell, and to say Padaro Beach Grill’s version is better is a criminal understatement. When asked if they would consider keeping it on their menu after Burrito Week ends (it’s that good), Padaro manager Javier said with a shrug and smile they’d see how popular it proved. So for all of us, go get one. Get two and save the other for dinner. Just don’t make us go to Taco Bell. —Tyler Hayden

he time has arrived that many birders anticipate for long months: fall migration. There are a number of reasons the season is regarded with such fondness. With so many birds on the move, the diversity of what can be seen is huge. It’s also a time to brush up on skills. Many of the vireos, sparrows, and warblers passing though are look-alikes, so you really have to be alert as to which features are crucial for identification, for views are often brief. Lastly, the odds of finding something truly rare are much greater than at any other time of year, and this possibility drives many a birder to check likely spots.
an irresistible snack to migrating birds. For one reason or another, most of these rows of trees have been removed in Santa Barbara County. A few years ago, another non-native, the Tipuana tree, widely planted as a shade tree in parking lots, was found to be attracting large numbers of birds because of a pest, the Tipu psyllid, which was infesting the leaves. Indeed, one of the local hotspots attracting birders is the parking lot of a Goleta business park. The reigning monarch of bird-attracting trees, however, is the red gum eucalyptus (that’s right, another non-native). Many of these trees are infested with a psyllid that exudes a protective white sugary substance known as a lerp. Birds go crazy for these lerps. Birders tend to have a by Hugh Ranson, Member of the Santa Barbara Audubon Society language all their own, and the phrase “lerpy euc” is a Finding a rarity is like looking for a needle recent addition to the lexicon. So once you’ve found a lerpy euc full of in a haystack, but over the years, birders have learned a few tricks that at least help warblers, tanagers, and vireos, how do you narrow down which corner of the haystack go about sorting through them to look for a to look in.

The other two greenish-yellow warblers common in lerpy eucs are the Wilson’s and yellow warblers. It’s a good idea to learn the features of these three before making efforts to find the rarer birds.

had different physical appearances. They tolerated each other, but villagers were not allowed to cross the creek without first getting the other tribe’s permission. Most modern California history books start with Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo cruising up the coast under the Spanish flag. In fact, Santa Barbara historian Walker Tompkins calls the day Cabrillo anchored off Los Dos Pueblos the “day history began” for the future rancho. But for the Chumash, it was really the beginning of the end. Learn a little more about the locals who called this unique location their home for generations before that fateful day. The story is titled “Dos Pueblos Chumash,” which can be read in full at independent .com/GoletaHistory and at GoletaHistory .com.
Two Distinct Populations at the Mouth of a Storied Creek by Tom Modugno area Dos Pueblos because there were two Chumash villages right next to each other. They were called Mikiw and Kuyamu, and they were here long before any Europeans came along and gave them a generic name. But the reality is that these two neighboring villages were anything but generic, and they were very different from each other. There was just a small stream between them, but despite their proximity, they spoke two different dialects, had different cultures, and the residents even
Author Tom Modugno has been dedicated to bringing Goleta’s past to life through an impressive collection of images since 2013, and his Goleta History column makes its debut this week, starting appropriately with the Chumash, who were the first to live along the South Coast.

Original Owners Selling the Brewhouse MARIA YAPUR/THE BREWHOUSE
Tiger restaurants, Clayton comes from a longtime orchid-growing family and now rents out his five acres of Carpinteria land as storage to fishermen and others. A part-time real estate agent, Danely worked in tile and stone construction prior to his job at the Coral Casino, but he started in restaurants when he was just 12 years old, working for Rick’s Pizza on the Mesa, Mesa Café, and Cliff & Co. “I’ve been in restaurants my whole life,” said Danely. “It’s something I feel really good about and love doing.” He dreamed of one day opening a taqueria in New Zealand, until he realized that the Brewhouse ownership seemed to be losing interest. He approached Johnson in December, and they started to negotiate. Danely and Clayton expect to take hold of the license soon, although escrow isn’t expected to close CHEERS TO PETE: Co-owner Pete Johnson (right) joined The Brewhouse as the brewmaster soon after it was opened in 1998. He’ll be toasting longtime customers and employees during Oktoberfest next month. until next month. They’d like to start cleaning fter nearly a quarter-century of brewing beers, servup the outdoor spaces right away ing burgers, and showcasing bands, the original and then may close briefly during January’s slow season owners of the Brewhouse are selling their beloved to do indoor renovations. But they won’t close during the restaurant and brewery on West Montecito Street in transition — in fact, they ordered the full NFL package Santa Barbara. The new owners — both longtime custom- for the season and may even bring back Monday Night ers raised on the Mesa, one a current employee — plan to Football specials. “We want to make hay while the sun bring renewed energy and much-needed investment to shines,” said Danely. the establishment, which is the oldest brewery in town.
A Goodbye Oktoberfest Being Planned as TRANSITION TIME Longtime manager Maria Yapur, who first worked Popular Brewpub Changes Hands there 19 years ago and has been there for 11 years by Matt Kettmann
“It’s going to be a different life suddenly to not be thinking about the Brewhouse constantly,” said current co-owner Pete Johnson, who joined as the restaurant’s brewmaster soon after Gary Jacobson and Barbara Long founded it in 1998. “I’m 67 and I’m the youngest of the three of us. The place could use a little more support. Hopefully the new guys are gonna keep it pretty much the same, keep it a cool place, and fix up a few things that have been neglected for a while.” Buying the brewpub are Grant Danely and Joal Clayton, who both grew up just miles away and have been going to the restaurant since it opened. “Our goal is just to refresh it and keep it going for another 24 years,” said Danely, who started working at the Brewhouse more than a year ago after being let go from his Coral Casino bartending job during COVID. “Hopefully we’ll be in our seventies then and just give it to somebody else.” The grandson of the founder of Santa Barbara’s Jolly
straight, said that the sale comes after a tumultuous period for the restaurant. The troubles began in April 2017 with a fire that shut down operations for a couple of months, then came the Thomas Fire that December, followed by the debris flow in January, and the pandemic in 2020. “It’s gotten to the point where we don’t really have money in the bank to fix things,” she said. “It’s getting harder and harder.” Yapur confirmed that the Brewhouse remains a busy place, even as the nearby Funk Zone and multiple breweries lure away some of the younger crowds. “We’re still the only brewery that has a full bar and kitchen,” she said. When asked why the Brewhouse became so popular years ago, Johnson couldn’t exactly say. “None of us really knew what we were doing — we were just having fun,” said the former rocket scientist for NASA whose home-brewing hobby turned into his second act. “Maybe that was part of it. We were having fun, and so was everyone else.” The food cooked by co-owner Jacobson, who developed the restaurant after being a chef at the Brewhouse Grill on State Street, was an early calling card. “That’s what
put us on the map: The food was really good,” said Johnson. “I didn’t have to figure out what kind of beer would draw people in. We already had a full house.” On a personal note, the first food and drink article that I ever wrote more than 20 years ago was about the Brewhouse. I was a regular in those post-college days, often feasting on macadamia-nut-crusted halibut and gorgonzola salad while others devoured filet mignon enchiladas and stroganoff. I interviewed Johnson soon after he started brewing beer and wrote about how co-owner “Barb” Long would hit the stage with her guitar to sing some tunes. “You called us ‘The Hub of Hip,’ ” recalled Johnson. He believes the transition to new ownership should be “fairly seamless,” especially on the brewing side, as Casey Smith, who’s handled the day-to-day brewing for years now, is staying on board. “There will be no drop-off in quality,” said Johnson. “It will probably get better if he gets me out of the way.” If anything, Danely wants to increase distribution of the Brewhouse’s beers to off-site locations, perhaps even the Santa Barbara Bowl.
AN OKTOBERFEST GOODBYE The original owners aren’t going out with a whimper. They’re hosting one last Oktoberfest on October 7 and 8, expecting numerous former employees to make appearances in a grand goodbye. “We’re going out on a high note and see if we can get some gemütlichkeit going,” said Johnson. “It’s a German word that doesn’t have any direct translation, but it means a feeling of happiness and good times and coziness. It’s a key part of Oktoberfest in Germany. Nobody here has any idea of that word, but they’re all experiencing gemütlichkeit.” The annual Oktoberfest celebration — complete with tuba bands, schnitzel, bratwurst, and lederhosen — is one of the restaurant’s crowning achievements, even though other establishments around Santa Barbara now host their own. “We were the original,” said Yapur of the tradition that started about 20 years ago. Aside from sprucing things up and focusing on expanding beer distribution, Danely, who spent recent days making chili as a prep cook in the kitchen, plans to keep everything the same, including the staff. He and Clayton have some money set aside for improvements, but not tons, and they’d welcome an equity partner. No matter what, they intend to reinvest the next four years of profits right back into the business. “It’s the oldest brewery in town,” he said. “We’re just breathing life into the place.” Regardless of how much stays the same, this sale represents real change for Yapur. “It’s the end of an era for all of us,” she said. “Let’s have one last big hooray for Oktoberfest and go out with a bang.” Johnson thinks he is ready for retirement. “Who knows?” he pondered with a tinge of reluctance. “I’ll probably wake up in the middle of the night after closing the deal and wish I still owned the Brewhouse.” At least he can still enjoy it as a customer, right? “I get free beer for life as part of the deal,” he replied with a chuckle. It didn’t sound like he was joking. Enjoy Oktoberfest at the Brewhouse (229 W. Montecito St.;  884-4664; sbbrewhouse.com) on October 7 and 8, or just come say goodbye to the original owners while n enjoying specials all month.

ISHI GLINSKY: UPON A JAGGED MAZE ISHI GLINSKY’S CONTEMPORARY-INDIGENOUS ART OPENS AD&A MUSEUM SEASON JOSEF WOODARD PHOTOS
Other series are colored by ulterior expressive motives, often craftily deploying found objects. Seemingly innocent baskets are made from oxidized rebar wire in chainlink loops (nodding to incarceration and being “fenced in”) and ceremonial necklaces made from shards of ceramic plates from thrift stores. Seemingly colorful and cheery wall-relief sculptures enlist cartoon figures we know and love—Snoopy, Bugs Bunny—in tragi-comic setups. Upon a Jagged Maze closes on an eyesoothing grace note, relatively speaking. The museum’s back gallery hosts three large, warmly painted and semi-abstract canvases, in which rippling and interlacing patterns pay homage to the ancient Native American arts of basketry and weaving. Glinsky mixes traditional painting methods with spray painting, adding a sheen of mystique and contemporary patina to the gestural palette. In effect, the back room conjures up a sensuous and congenial last impression, in a generally fascinating and thought-provocative exhibition. —Josef Woodard
SUZANNE VEGA Brings N.Y.C. Slices to the Lobero Her name is Suzanne. She lives on the ground floor of important singer-songwriters calling N.Y.C. home. Pardon the “Luka” paraphrase: Vega’s classic song remains one of the most instantly recognizable and quotable in her songbook. The song is also one of the calling cards, along with another legendary New York story song from the same album (1987’s Solitude Standing), “Tom’s Diner,” on veteran songstress Vega’s new album An Evening of New York Songs and Stories. Next Wednesday, September 28, Vega will steer her current tour through the Lobero Theatre for an evening of songs and stories—mostly about her hometown of New York—in the heart of Santa Barbara. Vega, who studied literature at Barnard and started out in folk clubs in Greenwich Village, had her dramatic rise into public consciousness and a wholly original niche of the singer-songwriter scene beginning with her debut album in 1985. A creatively restless soul, she ventured into more experimental territory on her 1992 album 99.9F°, gamely accepting the implicit songwriter challenge of turning a thermometer reading into a quirky hook. Vega’s newly released album was recorded in a landmark New York venue, Carlyle’s, in 2019, before the city infamously fell victim to one of the most perilous attacks of the

irst impressions, subtle and otherwise, matter when it comes to the delicate art of museum exhibition design. In the case of Ishi Glinsky: Upon a Jagged Maze, the dynamic opening exhibition of the new season for UCSB’s Art, Architecture and Design Museum (museum.ucsb.edu), the immediate impact is multifold, subtle and otherwise. Entering the museum’s foyer gallery, we are greeted by the awesome sight of “Coral vs. King Snake,” a monumental, iconic sculpture towering just over 10 feet tall, takes the form of a punky black leather jacket, festooned with patches celebrating Native American issues and calls to radical action, including AIM (American Indian Movement) and the “Coral vs. King Snake” by Ishi Glinksy logo for the organization Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.

COVID-19 virus in America. The city also proudly faced off the scourge and set a paradigm for recovery (for a time). Fittingly, Vega’s N.Y.C. songs — usually embedded with minimalist storytelling — address the romanticism, resiliency, paranoia, edginess, and complexities of life in the Big Apple. One of the lesser-known but special songs on the new album addresses the mythic phenom of Suzanne Vega an aspiring small-town-based artist going Gotham with big dreams, in the form of “New York Is My Destination.” The artist in question is Southern gothic novelist Carson McCullers, the subject of Vega’s 2016 one-woman play Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers. Full-circle timeline trivia: The first version of the play was created while Vega was a humble, aspiring student at Barnard. Without a doubt, Suzanne Vega—born in Santa Monica but a New Yorker from toddlerhood—has thoroughly celebrated and been celebrated in and far beyond her destination home. —JW
“Ridin’ Crawdad” by Glenda Stevens If the notion of a western-themed fine art show at a storied thoroughbred horse ranch makes you kick up your heels in delight, you won’t want to miss the uniquely charming SLOPOKE, September 23-25. Held at Flag Is Up Farms — the 100-acre Solvang horse ranch owned and operated by Monty “the real life horse whisper” Roberts and his equine sculptor and equestrian wife, Pat Roberts — in an open-sided but roofed 30,000-square-foot riding arena with white museum-like walls set up in an open floor plan with led lighting for the art , this museum-quality art show is the brainchild of Tom Burgher, a former Central Coast art gallery owner. “We’re going to spotlight 37 artists from all over the western half of the country,” said Burgher. “The furthest away is from Duluth, Minnesota.” Artists from Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Idaho, Minnesota, Louisiana, Montana, and California are featured in the juried show, judged by California artist Michael Obermeyer, who is also the featured guest artist. Obermeyer, whom Burgher described as “beloved by other art historians as perhaps the best plein air painter in the United States,” serves as the President of the prestigious California Art Club, and his paintings can be found in the U.S. Air Force Historical Art Collection at the Smithsonian Institute and the Pentagon.

Harlem Shuffle by Colson Whitehead
Register at independent.com/ indybookclub
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Even when your courage has a touch of foolhardiness, even when your quest for adventure makes you a bit reckless, you can be resourceful enough to avoid dicey consequences. Maybe more than any other sign of the zodiac, you periodically outfox karma. But in the coming weeks, I will nevertheless counsel you not to barge into situations where rash boldness might lead to wrong moves. Please do not flirt with escapades that could turn into chancy gambles. At least for the foreseeable future, I hope you will be prudent and cagey in your quest for interesting and educational fun.
(Apr. 20-May 20): In 1946, medical professionals in the U.K. established the Common Cold Unit. Its goal was to discover practical treatments for the familiar viral infection known as the cold. Over the next 43 years, until it was shut down, the agency produced just one useful innovation: zinc gluconate lozenges. This treatment reduces the severity and length of a cold if taken within 24 hours of onset. So the results of all that research were modest, but they were also much better than nothing. During the coming weeks, you may experience comparable phenomena, Taurus: less spectacular outcomes than you might wish, but still very worthwhile.
(May 21-June 20): Here’s a scenario that could be both an invigorating metaphor and a literal event. Put on rollerblades. Get out onto a long flat surface. Build up a comfortable speed. Fill your lungs with the elixir of life. Praise the sun and the wind. Sing your favorite songs. Swing your arms all the way forward and all the way back. Forward: power. Backward: power. Glide and coast and flow with sheer joy. Cruise along with confidence in the instinctive skill of your beautiful body. Evaporate thoughts. Free yourself of every concern and every idea. Keep rambling until you feel spacious and vast.
(June 21-July 22): I’m getting a psychic vision of you cuddled up in your warm bed, surrounded by stuffed animals and wrapped in soft, thick blankets with images of bunnies and dolphins on them. Your headphones are on, and the songs pouring into your cozy awareness are silky-smooth tonics that rouse sweet memories of all the times you felt most wanted and most at home in the world. I think I see a cup of hot chocolate on your bedstand, too, and your favorite dessert. Got all that, fellow Cancerian? In the coming days and nights, I suggest you enjoy an abundance of experiences akin to what I’ve described here.
(July 23-Aug. 22): For 15 years, Leo cartoonist Gary Larson created The Far Side, a hilarious comic strip featuring intelligent talking animals. It was syndicated in more than 1,900 newspapers. But like all of us, he has had failures, too. In one of his books, Larson describes the most disappointing event in his life. He was eating a meal in the same dining area as a famous cartoonist he admired, Charles Addams, creator of The Addams Family. Larson felt a strong urge to go over and introduce himself to Addams. But he was too shy and tongue-tied to do so. Don’t be like Larson in the coming weeks, dear Leo. Reach out and connect with receptive people you’d love to communicate with. Make the first move in contacting someone who could be important to you in the future. Be bold in seeking new links and affiliations. Always be respectful, of course.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Love your mistakes and foibles,” Virgo astrologer William Sebrans advises his fellow Virgos. “They aren’t going away. And it’s your calling in life — some would say a superpower — to home in on them and finesse them. Why? Because you may be able to fix them or at least improve them with panache — for
your benefit and the welfare of those you love.” While this counsel is always relevant for you, dear Virgo, it will be especially so in the coming weeks.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Tips for making the most of the next three weeks: (1) Be proud as you teeter charismatically on the fence. Relish the power that comes from being in between. (2) Act as vividly congenial and staunchly beautiful as you dare. (3) Experiment with making artful arrangements of pretty much everything you are part of. (4) Flatter others sincerely. Use praise as one of your secret powers. (5) Cultivate an open-minded skepticism that blends discernment and curiosity. (6) Plot and scheme in behalf of harmony, but never kiss ass.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Poet Mary Oliver wrote, “There is within each of us a self that is neither a child, nor a servant of the hours. It is a third self, occasional in some of us, tyrant in others. This self is out of love with the ordinary; it is out of love with time. It has a hunger for eternity.” During the coming weeks, Scorpio, I will be cheering for the ascendancy of that self in you. More than usual, you need to commune with fantastic truths and transcendent joys. To be in maximum alignment with the good fortune that life has prepared for you, you must give your loving attention to the highest and noblest visions of your personal destiny that you can imagine.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Tips to get the most out of the next three weeks: (1) Use your imagination to make everything seem fascinating and wonderful. (2) When you give advice to others, be sure to listen to it yourself. (3) Move away from having a rigid conception of yourself and move toward having a fluid fantasy about yourself. (4) Be the first to laugh at and correct your own mistakes. (It’ll give you the credibility to make even better mistakes in the future.) (5) Inspire other people to love being themselves and not want to be like you.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn poet William Stafford wrote, “Saying things you do not have to say weakens your talk. Hearing things you do not need to hear dulls your hearing.” Those ideas are always true, of course, but I think it’s especially crucial that you heed them in the coming weeks. In my oracular opinion, you need to build your personal power right now. An important way to do that is by being discriminating about what you take in and put out. For best results, speak your truths as often and as clearly as possible. And do all you can to avoid exposing yourself to trivial and delusional “truths” that are really just opinions or misinformation.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are an extra-authentic Aquarius if people say that you get yourself into the weirdest, most interesting trouble they’ve ever seen. You are an ultragenuine Aquarius if people follow the twists and pivots of your life as they would a soap opera. And I suspect you will fulfill these potentials to the max in the coming weeks. The upcoming chapter of your life story might be as entertaining as any you have had in years. Luckily, imminent events are also likely to bring you soulful lessons that make you wiser and wilder. I’m excited to see what happens!
(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In a poem to a lover, Pablo Neruda wrote, “At night I dream that you and I are two plants that grew together, roots entwined.” I suspect you Pisceans could have similar deepening and interweaving experiences sometime soon — not only with a lover but with any treasured person or animal you long to be even closer to than you already are. Now is a time to seek more robust and resilient intimacy.

CONSTRUCTION CDBG CONSTRUCTION EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES Each year the City of Santa Barbara utilizes CDBG/HOME funds for local construction projects that benefit the community, including public facilities, infrastructure improvements and decent housing availability. Section 3 Business Concerns, Small and Minority Owned and Women Businesses are encouraged to submit bids for CDBG construction projects. Background: Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, as amended, (“Section 3”) requires that economic opportunities generated by certain U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) financial assistance for housing and community development programs are, to the greatest extent feasible, directed to low and very low‑income persons. The priority of assistance should be to those who are recipients of government assistance for housing, and business concerns which provide economic opportunities to low and very low‑income persons. The Section 3 program was created to ensure that persons living in communities where HUD assisted programs are funded could economically benefit from the resources being provided. This would improve the overall socioeconomic condition of not only the community, but also offer opportunities to the low and very low‑income residents who reside within the neighborhoods. Additionally, the City of Santa Barbara is required to take affirmative action to contract with small and minority‑owned firms and women business enterprises and utilize small and minority‑owned firms and women business enterprises for purchasing materials and supplies for CDBG construction projects. Inquire Today: If you would like to see if your business would qualify as a Section 3 Business Concern or you are a small and minority owned or women business who would like to be notified of upcoming CDBG/HOME contracting opportunities please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the interest list or visit https://hudapps.hud.gov/
