While avid football fans may not be as prevalent as surfers or winos in S.B., NFL diehards do exist. Three of them — (from right) Tonea Songer, Mark Hermann, and Remzi Gokmen — can be found in The Santa Barbara Independent’s sales offices. Although Songer, a New Orleans Saints fan, was born into a family of football enthusiasts, she recalled, “Watching football for me was an acquired taste. Kind of like wine,” but she plans to head to Hollister Brewing Company to watch weekly games. Hermann, a devoted San Francisco 49ers fan, prefers to watch the fate of his team — regardless of how tragic — at home, “uninterrupted.” Ohio native and Cleveland Browns fan Gokmen loves following the sport because as the days get shorter, win or lose, “at least you have football.”

Deputies Plead Not Guilty

A preliminary hearing date was set for two custody deputies who pleaded not guilty Friday to assault charges. Robert Kirsch (pictured, right), 30, and Christopher Johnson (pictured, left), 28, are accused of assault by public officers in the alleged beating of an inmate awaiting trial for murder and sex crimes. Bill Hadden, Kirsch’s attorney, stated, “It’s our contention that both deputies did nothing wrong,” and he said he looks forward to disproving the charges in court. The alleged assault of Charles Alonzo Owens took place on June 17. He was given medical attention immediately, then he was taken to a hospital for further examination eight days later after complaining of upper torso pain. The Public Defender’s office filed a complaint with the Sheriff’s Office on June 18, triggering a twomonth investigation, after which the Sheriff turned over his findings to the District Attorney. Kirsch and Johnson’s next appearance in court — Brandon Fastman will be October 8.

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

Santa Barbara police arrested a 17-year-old gang member in the near-fatal shooting of an 18-year-old gang member on Wentworth Avenue last March. Following five months of investigation, authorities arrested the male suspect on charges of attempted murder and participation in a criminal street gang. The two teens belong to different cliques of the same gang, and “the issue at hand involved a conflict within the gang,” said police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood. At the time of his most recent arrest, the suspect was already serving time at Santa Barbara County Juvenile Hall for an unrelated crime, and the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office has expressed its intent to prosecute him as an adult for the March shooting.

Cop Kills Man Holding Knife Eyewitness Describes Incident; Suspect Had Extensive Criminal History



Santa Barbara police officer shot and killed 46-year-old Brian Phillip Tacadena after a confrontation near the intersection of De la Vina and Victoria streets Sunday night. According to officials, Tacadena advanced on the officer with a “large, fixed-blade” knife and refused to follow commands to stop and drop the weapon. Although the S.B. Police Department (SBPD) has released few details about what led up to the shooting or why Tacadena was armed and walking through the Westside neighborhood, The Santa Barbara Independent spoke to several residents in the area who shed some light on how the incident unfolded. Greg Slater — who lives in the apartment building at  De la Vina — said he watched the confrontation take place from his upstairs window. He said he first looked outside after hearing the buzzer of a police car and then saw an officer standing about 20 feet away from a man who was holding a six-inch knife by his side. “The cop told him to stop and drop the knife,” Slater recalled. “He turned around and started walking toward the officer. The officer told him again to stop and drop the knife or he would shoot. Then the guy said,‘Yeah, I know,’ and just kept walking toward him.” Slater said he then heard about four gunshots and that the whole event took a matter of seconds.“It looked to me like suicide by cop,” he added. Slater described Tacadena as large, six feet tall, with a beard and wearing a baseball cap. He said he thought Tacadena was white, or possibly Latino, but that it was hard to tell because it was dark outside. “It looked justified to me,” 10


Slater said of the fatal shooting.“It looked like it was textbook. I mean, the guy was a threat — he didn’t put his weapon down.” Slater’s next-door neighbor, Dennis Burke, got out of bed around 11:30 p.m. when he heard a police car pull up outside his apartment. He also recalled hearing an officer repeatedly yell,“Drop the knife!” followed by several gunshots.“It happened so quick it was unbelievable,” he said.“He looked like he could have been a dangerous guy,” Burke added. “I heard the officer calling out to somebody further down on Victoria,” Burke also said. “I don’t know if this individual had been involved in an incident further down the street — I’d really like to know what that guy had been doing.” He said a police officer knocked on nearby doors about 10 or 15 minutes after the shooting to ask apartment residents to recall what they had seen or heard. Victoria Street resident Marian Sorensen said she heard gunshots down the street as well. She asked, “Why didn’t they taser him?” She also expressed frustration because her young son saw Tacadena’s uncovered body on the sidewalk before it was removed. “Why didn’t they cover the body right away?” she wondered. Other residents down both streets said they heard anywhere between four to eight gunshots just before midnight and that approximately a dozen police cruisers descended on the intersection in a matter of minutes. They added that officials cordoned off a two-block radius around the scene until the next morning. As of Tuesday evening, flowers and a few notes from Tacadena’s friends and family members had been placed next to a utility pole at the intersection. Citing the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation, officials have released little informa-

september 5, 2013

tion about Tacadena’s life or lifestyle; however, Sheriff ’s Office spokesperson Kelly Hoover said in an email, “Tacadena has an extensive booking history at the Santa Barbara County Jail dating from 1986 to 2005.” Records indicate Tacadena had been arrested at least two dozen times over the years for felony charges involving weapons, battery, and drugs. City Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood said that the agency has launched an inquiry into the shooting and that he couldn’t yet release the name of the officer involved, how many shots were fired, or how many times Tacadena was hit. He said the District Attorney’s Office may also compile its own report. When asked about the protocol of an officer using a gun in such a situation, Harwood explained: “Basically, if an officer is threatened with what would amount to a lethal force — some type of force that would likely cause death or serious bodily injury — then the officer can counter that with lethal force. That is what our training dictates. “If you think of the types of equipment that an officer has on their person, typically the firearm is the only lethal weapon that they have,” he added, “Typically, an officer would not consider using a taser on a suspect with a knife.” According to other sources, academy training teaches that if a knife-wielding suspect is 20 feet away, he or she could potentially charge the officer in a matter of seconds. The last time a suspect was shot and killed by an SBPD officer was during Fiesta in 2007, said Harwood. In March 2005, a man suspected to be high on methamphetamine was shot and killed after he charged officers with a ■ knife.

Retired Santa Barbara County Fire Department employee Robert Perez (above) was arraigned on 9/3 on seven felony charges for grand theft of approximately $114,000 and six counts of filing false income tax returns between 2007 and 2012. Before retiring this spring, Perez served as the insurance administrator of Santa Barbara County Firefighters Local 2046, said Adam Estabrook, the union’s president. The union discovered the alleged criminal activity while conducting an audit this March, Estabrook said, and then reported the issue to the Sheriff’s Office. Perez failed to qualify to receive a public defender but made a plea to the court, saying, “Had I felt like fleeing, I would have fled prior to standing here”; he turned himself in on Friday. Perez was released on his own recognizance by Santa Barbara Judge Thomas Adams and ordered to return to court 9/17. Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office personnel along with members of the California National Guard removed more than 4,000 illegal marijuana plants growing on private land along Santa Rosa Road between Lompoc and Buellton. The plants, which had a street value of around $12 million, were discovered by the landowner when he spotted people trespassing on his property and found they had diverted livestock water to grow the cannabis crop. No one was arrested during the 8/29 eradication, and the case is under investigation. A 21-year-old Santa Barbara gang member — Jesus Campos Soto — was arrested on 8/27 and charged with gun, drug, and gangrelated crimes. He’s being held in County Jail on $100,000 bail. Members of S.B. Police Department’s Criminal Impact and Gang Suppression


For the past 40 years, Reeve Woolpert has been so relentless a tree-hugger that he all but sweats splinters. But this Tuesday, Woolpert found himself joining hands with longtime political arch-rivals, conservative agitators Andy Caldwell and Joe Armendariz, to lobby the Board of Supervisors on behalf of a high-end, eight-unit subdivision slated for the land known as the “White Hole” located behind Lillie and Greenwell avenues in Summerland. For Woolpert, it was a “pinch me” moment. “I’ve never been on the same side of any issue as Andy Caldwell,” he told the supervisors with evident amazement. But Woolpert and other Summerland residents sat down with developer and hardcharging polo padrone Pat Nesbitt — of Embassy Suites fame and fortune — and his attorney Steve Amerikaner to hash out a settlement. “The changes are sufficient and acceptable to the community,” he proclaimed. (Caldwell was more enthusiastic, calling the settlement “a darn good deal” that will provide the county with much-needed tax revenues.) Although the subdivision approval dates back to 1993, Nesbitt found himself in hot water with zoning officials for illegally grading 13 feet off the top of a knoll area, giving what had been a rolling, uneven landscape a uniform flattop. Zoning officials say anything more than two feet constitutes a violation. Nesbitt, famous among environmentalists for his creativity and determination in bending zoning ordinances past the breaking point, has emphatically denied any wrongdoing. But when his plans — which required a lot-line adjustment and map modification — were shot down this spring by the Planning Commission, the man famous for his aggressive style of play on the polo field, where he’s known as the “Maroon Harpoon,” was forced to switch tactics. He agreed to trim down the developed space, increasing the amount of open space by 1.76 acres. In addition, Nesbitt agreed to a native plant restoration program in which a host of nonnative weeds will be eradicated. To help restore some undulation to the hillside, he agreed to build a large berm where the decapitated knoll used to be, and — Nick Welsh install three massive sandstone boulders.

teams went to Soto’s house in the 700 block of Wentworth Avenue to conduct a probation search. Soto wasn’t home, but officers looked through his room and found clothes bearing gang insignia as well as a .38 caliber revolver hidden under the bed. Around an hour later, police spotted Soto walking with a group of friends along Loma Alta Drive and made contact. He reportedly refused to comply with their orders and resisted being placed in handcuffs. Once in custody, the officers discovered a bindle of meth hidden in the seat of his pants. Authorities on 9/3 released the name of a man found dead in the Mission Creek Slough last week. James Wesley Naylor, 55, was spotted by a transient at around 7:30 a.m. on 8/30, and it appeared he had been in the water for at least one to three days, said police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood. Naylor, also believed to be homeless, was removed from the slough, and the case was handed over to the Coroner’s Office for an autopsy and toxicology report. Authorities so far do not suspect foul play, said Harwood.

CITY While the number of registered Santa Barbara City voters has increased slightly in the past 10 years — by about 500 — the number of registered Republicans has dropped by about 2,800, the number of registered Democrats has increased by about 2,000, and the number of voters who declined to state party affiliation increased by about 2,500. Within city limits, there were 23,386 registered Democrats as of this spring, 9,414 Republicans, and 10,643 declined-to-states. These shifts mirror similar changes — though with notable variation — in party registration taking place throughout the state, in which Republican numbers have dropped by about 100,000, Democrats have inched up slightly, and declined-to-states increased by 5 percent. These numbers will be of strategic significance in the coming months as 10 City Council candidates — and two mayorals — try to connect with enough voters to land a

berth come the November election. Three council seats are up for grabs with two incumbents seeking to hold on for second terms, leaving one open slot. Worried about how the state’s Public Employees Pension Reform Act will affect bargaining rights, the Santa Barbara MTD, represented by Teamsters Union Local 186, has put forth an Emergency Service Reduction Plan to deal with possible cuts to services. According to the MTD, the law could mean cuts to its federal funding and a consequentially tightened budget. Effects could be felt by customers in the form of decreased services as early as January. The MTD is seeking public input on the plan, hosting a meeting on September 10 at 6 p.m. at 550 Olive Street. Additional comments can be sent to

COUNTY Winemakers, business owners, workers, and residents who live amid the Santa Ynez Valley’s burgeoning wine country showed up at St. Mark’s church in Los Olivos to get a rundown and offer feedback on the county’s first stab at revising the rules for getting future wineries permitted. Of the 17 public speakers, a little more than half spoke in favor of less-onerous restrictions for the wine business while the rest issued concerns about how the current and likely continued proliferation of wineries, tasting rooms, and special events are putting a cramp on their rural lifestyles. The tension that had existed in previous meetings between winemakers and the concerned neighbors was apparent, but it seemed somewhat tempered from the past. On the other end of the spectrum were folks like Bob Field, who said that while he appreciated the county’s progress, he felt that when it came to the two main neighborhood issues (whether wineries with tasting rooms/special events should exist in the valley’s more residential areas and why the wine-tasting public should be discouraged to drive on substandard rural roads), the draft concept “fails to resolve either issue.” cont’d page 12

Strange Bedfellows Indeed

PRICEY FIX: Sheriff’s Helicopter 308, seen here fighting the Lookout Fire on October 17, 2012, went way over its expected repair costs.

Helicopter Repairs Threaten to Break the Bank


BY N I C K W E L S H anta Barbara County supervisors coughed up a collective fur ball this Tuesday when they were notified that the bill to fix one of the Sheriff ’s department’s five helicopters weighed in more than twice what was originally estimated. The final repair invoice for Helicopter  was $320,000; the initial estimate had been $143,000. Although there was enough money in the helicopter repair fund that the supervisors had approved earlier this summer, the expenditure will drain most of what’s left in the account with 10 months still left in the fiscal year. None of the supervisors were happy with the news, but Peter Adam peppered the sheriff ’s chief fiscal officer Douglas Martin with such a barrage of critical questions that Sheriff Bill Brown felt compelled to come to Martin’s rescue. What would happen if the county refused to pay the bill, Adam asked; and wasn’t it a “charade” if the supervisors were expected to merely “rubber stamp” every cost overrun any county department head submitted for payment? Looking stern and a bit peeved, Brown stated helicopters are inherently expensive to maintain, but that they provide an essential service in times of fire or when emergency rescues are needed. He and Martin expressed surprise of their own that the bill was so high and that the repairs took so long; the “bird”— as Martin referred to it — was in the shop for six months. Compounding matters, the departmental maintenance technician who would normally have done much of the work was out on leave due to a family tragedy. As a result, the repairs were farmed out to a private company in Van Nuys. Adam — who is supporting Brown’s opponent in next year’s sheriff ’s election, Sergeant Sandra Brown — questioned whether the department really needed five helicopters.

“Could we get by with less?” he demanded. Brown explained that one of the helicopters is specially equipped with twin engines, allowing it to fly missions in the Santa Barbara Channel. Two are needed for search and rescue and firefighting functions, he explained, but they each need backups because helicopters are grounded for repairs every 100 hours they’re in the air. With law enforcement officers taken off the streets of Santa Maria to escort prisoners to the County Jail, Adam questioned whether the department could afford a specialty helicopter capable of island rescues. Brown said the helicopter budget “has no bearing on what we’re doing in Santa Maria.” When Adam demanded just how many such rescues had actually been done with the Sheriff ’s department fleet, Supervisor Salud Carbajal — chairing the meeting — cut him off. That line of inquiry, Carbajal insisted, was more appropriate for a longer — and later — discussion on how the Sheriff ’s fleet is actually deployed. Whether that meeting ever takes place has yet to be seen. Adam also expressed concern about price “creep.” Supervisor Doreen Farr chimed in, “It’s more than a creep,” she said, suggesting the supervisors will have to choose between what they want and what they can afford. She noted with some alarm that on occasion only one of the department’s five “birds” have been airworthy. Supervisor Steve Lavagnino acknowledged helicopters provided a vital service, but he repeatedly asked why the supervisors weren’t notified sooner that the repair bill for Copter  had mushroomed so dramatically. “Were we on break?” he asked more than once. Finance officer Martin said he kept county executive Chandra Wallar apprised at all times. “It was as much as a surprise to us as it was to everyone ■ else,” he said.

After 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam voiced his faith that the State of California understands Santa Barbara’s needs for additional jail space at Tuesday’s board meeting, liberal 1st District Supervisor Salud Carbajal quipped at his conservative colleague, “It’s great to see your confidence in the state government. It’s very refreshing.” With a federal court breathing down California’s neck to remove 9,600 inmates from its prison system, however, it’s hard to ignore that the burden of overcrowding is shifting to county jails. This week, Governor Jerry Brown (backed by Assembly Speaker John Perez) and Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg unveiled competing plans to reduce the state prison population. The governor’s plan would shift the prisoners to privately run facilities — some of them out of state — and cost $315 million the first year and $415 million each of the following two years. Most importantly for those concerned about public safety, the governor’s plan would keep inmates from being released early. Steinberg’s plan calls for a $200 million annual expenditure on rehabilitation and mental health services in order to shrink the prison population. It is contingent on the agreement of inmates’ lawyers and a three-judge panel to offer a three-year delay in enforcing its order to release prisoners. While Santa Barbara’s Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson is all-in on Steinberg’s plan, Assemblymember Das Williams said he’d like to see both sides talk. He said his two priorities are that no prisoners are released early — especially because most nonviolent nonsexual offenders are already out — and that it is cost effective. He said the governor’s proposal is strong on the former and Steinberg’s is strong on the latter. Steinberg’s bill, said Jackson, “does not release a single prisoner early. It puts money into programs that are focused in the community that are known to improve public safety by incentivizing counties to … address the needs of people to become trained for employment, deal with substance abuse, mental health issues, and life skills, which have been proven in the past to reduce the recidivism rate.” Jackson and Williams both agree that the lawsuit that provoked the population-reduction orders are stealing money from schools. “Every dollar that is spent on this is a theft from our educational system, our health-care system, and everything else we hold dear,” said Williams. If Jerry Brown’s plan were to gain legislative approval, the state would spend more on — Brandon Fastman prisons than on higher education this fiscal year.

news briefs cont’d The supervisors approved spending $25,000 to get outside legal advice on the county’s options with regard to the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians’ intention to annex 1,400 acres of noncontiguous land to their reservation. These efforts have been the subject of intense community concern, particularly in the Santa Ynez Valley, and have been opposed by the county supervisors. Initially, the supes had been asked to approve a $150,000 contract for outside legal advice, but that amount included the possibility of litigation services. The fees were dropped because some supervisors felt uncomfortable including litigation in the quiver of options. The board has insisted that if the tribe wishes to pursue housing and economic development schemes on land off the reservation, it needs to follow the same development review process required of all county residents. Santa Barbara County’s Health Department estimates there are 25,000 county residents who are eligible for health insurance once the federal Affordable Care Act — also known as Obamacare — kicks in January 1, 2014. To this end, the department just accepted a federal grant of $233,000 to sign as many new enrollees up as possible. That money will pay for eight new contractors — bilingual, computer literate, and preferably veterans — to sign up those eligible for any of the new Health Insurance Exchanges still to be worked out at the state level. In addition, they will sign up individuals eligible for expanded Medi-Cal, estimated to be 6,000. County Health is not the only entity signing new enrollees up; nonprofits like the United Way have received funding to do the same. The Rincon Septic to Sewer Conversion Project finally broke ground on 8/30 when homeowners, elected officials, and community members gathered at the Rincon community

gates to celebrate the start of construction on a project 15 years in the making. In the late 1990s, surfers started complaining of infections and rashes caused by septic system runoff, and a 1998 study confirmed that 20 percent of the bacterial pollution in the lagoon that feeds into Rincon waters was from human fecal material. That discovery prompted a collaborative effort by Heal the Ocean, Carpinteria Sanitary District, and various stakeholders to tackle the contentious environmental issue. Construction on the system is scheduled to finish in 2014. The Rincon Palms Hotel (planned for the corner of Storke Rd. and Hollister Ave.) remains in flux. After hours of debate among councilmembers, concerned citizens, and developers — all of whom had varying opinions on the proposed hotel’s amenities, design, and impact on mountain views and traffic — the Goleta City Council voted 4-1 on 9/3 to continue its discussion on the project on 10/1. The original iteration of the hotel approved in 2008 was for a 112-room building with a free-standing restaurant but was later revised to be a 149-room hotel with a 5,440-square-foot conference center instead of a restaurant. Councilmembers and residents took issue with both proposals, prompting the council to suggest that the developers find a compromise.

She was visiting the Parent Resource Center (PRC), an educational multimedia library for parents of students with learning disabilities.

headquartered in the basement, and Superintendent David Cash envisions a technology learning center for parents. For possibly the final time, Academic Performance Index scores were released for K-12 schools. Overall, numbers dipped slightly for all South Coast districts save for Carpinteria Unified, which saw a rise from 791 to 808 — 800 being the threshold of proficiency on a scale that tops out at 1,000. The Open Alternative School saw a notable jump of 40 points from 771 to 811. Franklin Elementary School continued a five-year surge with a 27-point jump this year. Adelante Charter School also increased its score by 27 points. The API, however, is based on standardized tests that will be scrapped with the implementation of the new Common Core State Standards.

PEOPLE Wild horse advocate Neda DeMayo — the founder of Return to Freedom, a horse sanctuary in Lompoc — joined forces with actress Wendie Malick and Arizona Congressmember Raul Grijalva in Reno on 9/4 to call attention to what they say are problems with the Bureau of Land Management’s wild horse roundup program. In July, the bureau announced that it will remove 1,300 wild horses in western states. The activists say that rounding up the horses and housing them costs taxpayers too much money. They asked that the bureau heed the advice of the National Academy of Sciences, which recommends fertility control over roundups.


Marge Cafarelli, developer of the Alma del Pueblo (which translates to “Soul of the City”) condos now going up at the corner of Chapala and Victoria streets, has filed an appeal to nullify the preliminary approval granted two weeks ago allowing Metropolitan Theatres to proceed with the 33-unit apartment complex — dubbed the Arlington Village — it hopes to build right next to the Arlington Theatre. Cafarelli complained DEVELOPER FIGHTS DEVELOPMENT: the rental development violates city Marge Cafarelli, standing in what zoning and aesthetic guidelines when will become the Santa Barbara Public it comes to traffic, both vehicular and Market, has taken issue with apartments pedestrian, because all traffic would planned for the adjacent property. come in and out via an entrance on Chapala Street. When the Arlington Theatre books large shows requiring large equipment buses, she charged, the lot would be jammed, creating traffic havoc not just for the renters but for people moving into her condos as well. Likewise, Cafarelli objected the Arlington Village design failed to include adequate paseos for pedestrians, and she expressed concern that such foot traffic could clog the one existing paseo. Detlev Peikert, architect for Metro’s rental project, expressed surprise that the appeal was filed, but said he’s already developed plans to include an additional entryway into the village via Sola Street that he’s hopeful will address Cafarelli’s concerns. He noted that Metropolitan Theatres books only 10 major events a year in which buses would become an issue and that a traffic management plan had been crafted to maintain an acceptable flow of vehicles. Even so, Peikert acknowledged, city planners had concerns of their own about the traffic plan — finding it, he said, “less than ideal” — but deemed it acceptable nonetheless. Though Cafarelli’s appeal of the Historic Landmarks Commission’s preliminary approval forced some changes, Peikert said of the new design, “At the end of the day, it’s better for us.” Peikert has drawn up plans to build a new three-story structure standing 40 feet high with 33 rental units and two commercial storefronts. Cafarelli is currently marketing her 37 condos — built where Safeway and later Vons used to operate — for $850,000 to $2.6 million apiece. Five of the units are reserved for middle-income earners, meaning couples who make less than $90,000 a year.

Though her plan was to become the first person to swim around Anacapa Island, unexpected and overpowering ocean currents forced Lynn Kubasek (pictured) to rethink her goal and set a different record on 8/31. The 55-year-old water quality specialist from Laguna Beach — who’s been a marathon swimmer since 2009 — became the first homo sapien to swim from Anacapa Island to Santa Cruz Island, a six-mile journey that took her just over five hours to complete. (Two others have gone from island to island but in the other direction.) Braving jellyfish stings and strong currents that lengthened the swim by two or so hours, Kubasek made landfall at around 4 p.m. and etched her name into the record books of the Santa Barbara Channel Swimming Association, where she sits on the board. “I was ecstatic,” she said, remembering the gulls and garibaldis that greeted her near Santa Cruz. ■ sEPTEmbEr 5, 2013

Is Your Marriage in Crisis? From Marriage Tune-up to Last Chance Intensive Therapy



angry poodle barbecue

Twenty Feet from Dogdom

DO THE TIME, DO THE CRIME: I celebrated Labor Day, as usual, by working. In America’s

bulging pantheon of meaningless holidays, Labor Day remains the undisputed king. Even Hallmark Cards has yet to figure out how to exploit the event — which in reality signifies the sad end of summer fun. I swung by the traditional Labor Day barbecue held the by local Democratic Party at Oak Park to check out the speechifying, but I couldn’t hang. The food, it turns out, was catered, so there was no sizzle of burned animal flesh to tickle my olfactory senses. And who ever heard of a smoke-free barbecue? Instead, I held a worker solidarity rally of my own and invited the usual coalition of me, myself, and I.“We” spent the time constructively, I might add, trying to parse the lines of demarcation distinguishing a mere “super yacht” from the more exalted “mega yacht” and that even more extravagant “giga yacht.” Such things are important to know. Notorious railroad robber baron Jay Gould famously boasted that he could “hire half the working class to kill the other half.” To the extent anyone alive can make the same boast, it will be an owner of such luxury craft. I don’t know for sure if they’re accepting job applications, but they’re already here. Late Friday night, our man Rick Caruso — whose vast empty promises regarding the remodel of the Miramar Hotel are big enough to house all the homeless — chugged his 216-foot yacht, the Invictus, past the Santa Barbara coastline this weekend on his way to


Newport Beach. There, it turns out, his boat — a cross between a Viking Cruise Ship and a naval destroyer — has caused quite a stir. Initial

reports suggested Caruso’s boat was so ostentatiously over-the-top that it boggled the senses of even Orange County, where excess in the name of bad taste has always been considered a virtue. Upon closer inspection, however, it may be Newport Beach’s real concern was that the Invictus is actually too small. To qualify as a certified giga yacht, a luxury craft these days has to be at least 220 feet long. By that measurement, Rick’s boat may not cut the mustard. No such question mark hovers over Russian gazillionaire Roman Abramovich, who happened to chug his 377-foot yacht, Luna, through the channel this weekend, as well. For the record, Luna has not one but two helipads, two swimming pools, and its very own medical center. While that exceeds the capacity of my salivary glands to produce spit, it pales in comparison to the world’s biggest yacht, the 590-foot (two football fields) Azzam, which comes with twin pools, twin helipads, its own mini sub, a missile defense system, bulletproof glass in the bedroom, and a laser system designed to disarm and deactivate any encroaching paparazzi. To be fair, Santa Barbara News-Press owner Wendy McCaw has been discretely cruising around the Mediterranean in her yacht, the Calixe, for years. But maybe if what you’re sporting is only 193 feet in length, discretion is demanded. Wendy was aboard the Calixe,


if I recall, when the immortal meltdown that’s since consumed her paper was first triggered seven years ago. I mention McCaw not to kick any dead horses, but because the sad fate of the union drive by News-Press reporters illustrates just how egregiously little protection is afforded American workers seeking to organize. In 2007, McCaw fired nine employees then on the frontlines of the union effort at her paper. Although two administrative judges with the National Labor Relations Board would find McCaw guilty of wholesale unfair labor practices — spying, intimidating, and firing pro-union employees — there were no penalties. McCaw ignored orders to reinstate the illegally fired workers — who sought union protection only after McCaw disciplined three reporters for violating rules that did not then exist — and took her case to the D.C. Court of Appeals. Deploying logic so circular that it would induce whiplash in even the demonically possessed girl from The Exorcist, a panel of three judges dismissed the charges against McCaw and upheld her absolute right, as the owner and publisher, to do as she pleased. In their ruling, released several months ago, the judges concluded that because the union agitators wanted to restore ethics to the newsroom — which the judges insisted lay outside the scope of collective bargaining — the fired reporters and editors were not covered by any of the usual protections that federal law pretends to offer. Federal labor law was written to give workers the cover needed to get to the

bargaining table with their employers. If it turns out their demands are ridiculous, the bargaining table is where that determination is to be made. But by their actions, McCaw — and the judges — cut the legs off the bargaining table before anyone could sit down at it. That’s not just eliminating the middleman; that’s shooting him in cold blood. To the extent the workers’ “ethics” demand actually intruded on McCaw’s right to dictate the content of her newspaper, the judges made a Mount Kilimanjaro out of what barely qualified as a molehill. In actual practice, the NewsPress workers were asking only that reporters be allowed to have their bylines deleted from news articles they felt had been edited to reflect the political biases of McCaw. This proviso exists in various papers throughout the country, and to date, the sky has not fallen. Although the union effort is still twitching at the News-Press, it’s the sort of spastic muscle movement one associates with dogs just run over by Mack trucks. I mention all this because union membership is now down to an all-time low, 11 percent. And as union membership has declined, the chasm in income inequality has grown exponentially. Coincidence? I strongly doubt it. This, I understand, is America, where one person’s ceiling is someone else’s floor. But no one will be confusing my plastic, tar-encrusted kayak with a giga yacht anytime soon, no matter how hard they squint. — Nick Welsh

Not by These Alexanders


have learned from your newspaper of a lawsuit by “Alexander’s family” against Cottage Hospital alleging it is responsible for the death of my daughter Carmen [News, “Cottage Sued over FleshEating Bacteria Death,” 8/29/13, cottagesuednecrotizingfasciitis]. The suit was initiated by Vadim Hsu, her former husband and father of their three children, whose surnames are Hsu. My daughter Angela and I strongly protest the use of the Alexander name, which implies that we are complicit in this lamentable affair. We are deeply saddened that my grandchildren must again confront the details of their mother’s dreadful demise and the inevitable publicity. The doctors did all in their powers to save Carmen’s life.

— John Alexander, S.B.

Lifelong Learning


would like to add the following to On the Beat’s comments about the Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) [“Merci! What a Woman,” 8/29/13, mercedeseichholzremembered]: The state has not cut off funds for community college avocational and enrichment classes; the governor and certain legislators have proposed this but not implemented it. The state’s defined priorities for the community college system do not include avocational and enrichment adult ed courses; transfer preparation, career and technical education, and basic skills are the priorities. And CLL tuition fees range from $3-$10 per hour, with the vast majority at $5. Tuition assistance awards are available each term. — Andrew Harper, Executive Director, SBCC CLL

Heck No!


read “Hell Yeah for Heli Tours” [Living, 8/23/13,] with dismay. I can’t think of a more environmentally unfriendly way to get to know our area. The number of helicopter flights has already dramatically increased due to the new hospital helipad — at least 10 in the last three days. I feel as if an airport has annexed the town.

You can go for a hike on any number of trails and get a terrific, almost aerial-like view of the whole region from Camino Cielo.You can see dolphins from walking and biking trails along our bluffs or, better yet, paddle a kayak! No aviation fuel required. No thwack, thwack, thwack against — Michelle Rainville, S.B. eardrums involved.

emailed Cat Neushul’s August 25 Eye on Isla Vista online column,“Improvements Needed” [independent .com/improvementsneeded], to a few friends, and one reminded me of the UC Regents’ Trow Report, issued after the burning of the bank in 1970, which said: “If there is one thread running through all of our deliberations and recommendations, it is that the University can no longer ignore, if it ever could, the conditions under which the bulk of its students live and spend the greater part of their time while at the University.” Though we admire UCSB for its green efforts, the university only measures what it controls, not what it may be “responsible for” in a broader, and messier, context. — Carmen Lodise, Isla Vista

Dick Tidd was a mentor. Though an electrical contractor by trade, Dick was always teaching what he knew. Dozens of electrical contractors in the Tri-Counties got their start and gained confidence in their trade at

the side of Dick Tidd. Young people learned to water ski, high school linemen at Bishop Diego perfected their football technique with coaching from Mr. Tidd…. And during his three year battle with esophageal cancer, his family learned valuable lessons of living in the moment, maintaining faith, treasuring family and friends, and handling the dying process with grace and love. Dick was born in Santa Barbara in , and comforted by his faith and surrounded by his loving family, Dick left this earthly realm on Friday, August th at the age of . Raised locally by his parents, Harlow and Olive Tidd, with his brothers Roger and Bill, he attended SBHS and SBCC and worked at Jedlicka’s Saddlery, then joined the US Navy where he learned the basics of the electrical trade which would be his career for the next  years. After an honorable discharge from the service, he first joined Murphy Electric, then Craviotto Electric and eventually became a partner and then owner, of Wall Electrical Contractors, Inc. During his active lifetime as one of Santa Barbara’s most gifted tradesmen, he also rode horses as a member of the Los Padres Trail Riders, was a champion barrel racer, bowled in leagues and regularly played golf, usually walking the course with his bag over his shoulder even as recently as this past year. He was a gardener and his annual fruit and vegetable gardens fed his family and the neighborhood. He recently received the gift of a garden provided by The Dream Foundation and local volunteers, and the family believes that was one of the milestones that allowed him to peacefully transition to his next chapter of life, knowing that his family would have food to eat… A popular and well-liked businessman, his engaging smile and twinkling eyes revealed his soft, generous heart. Dick was the father and devoted patriarch

to five families. He has been married to Sara, his love, for  years. His children are Sharadi Nobbe, Trisha Childs, Dale Tidd, Bobby Kendrick and Danny Kendrick. He has  grandchildren and also  great-grandchildren. A memorial mass will be held at St. Raphael Catholic Church,  Hollister Ave in Goleta, on Monday, Sept. th, at : PM.

Dianne Burnham Hall, -J , 

Dianne Burnham Hall, , of Santa Barbara was welcomed Home by the Lord on July , . She died peacefully, in her sleep. She was born to Royal Clifford Burnham and Evelyn Tulen Burnham in Chautauqua, NY in . After graduating from high school at , she went on to earn a BA in Education from what is now SUNY Buffalo with dual certification in early childhood and orthopedically handicapped education. She began her teaching career in New York in , the same year in which she met her

future husband Stafford. Their marriage in  was followed by the birth of their son Andrew in . The new family moved to Hollywood later that same year, and to Santa Barbara in . From  to , she was a kindergarten teacher, supervisor of grades K- and curriculum director for grades K- at Christian School of Santa Barbara, leaving in  to begin a second career as a private tutor. For almost  years thereafter, generations of Santa Barbara students found the same cheerful, encouraging, motivating, friend and teacher whether at PM on a Friday night or AM on a Monday morning. Dianne lived her life firmly in the present and although she was old enough to have seen Peter, Paul, and Mary while they were still playing coffeehouses (she did), she was just as comfortable listening to Katy Perry. She taught much more than math. She was till the last a bright, intellectually curious woman who couldn’t wait for the morning to see what had happened during the night. Her bedside reading always included more than  books, from Brad Thor to Steven Pinker. She enjoyed politics, theology, cooking (especially baking), orchids, and generally making sure everyone was doing what they were supposed to be doing. Dianne is survived by her husband Stafford and son Andrew and was predeceased by her parents and her sister Elaine. While at her request there will be no funeral or memorial service, the family will be at home on Sunday, September  from - PM to receive visitors. Due in part to the unexpected nature of her passing and to assist with medical expenses, contributions may be made if desired to the Dianne B. Hall Memorial Fund in care of any Wells Fargo Bank branch office (account ending –). The familywould like to thank Welch-Ryce-Haider for their assistance in a difficult time.

Let’s just run the darn freeway at grade about where the present one is, build old-fashioned entrance and exit ramps and a few underpasses, and proclaim victory, cooler heads suggested. And so it was that in November 1991, the remaining signal was yanked out at Anacapa Street at a “Last Light Ceremony,” with Mayor Lodge presiding, a four-piece STOP AND SHAVE: Back in the 1950s, traffic on and across Highway band playing, and weary 101 was light; but by the ’90s, the wait at the infamous Santa residents cheering. Barbara stoplights was long enough to shave or sort your mail. The whole darn episode took 40 years and cost $58 million. Thankfully, it’s only in our fantasy spin wreckage (if it hasn’t already) on its way from that we have to ride on steel stilts, down in a Seattle to Newport Harbor, where it’s not exactly depressing trench, out in the water, or up on the welcome.

ment, of sorts: a depressed freeway, tucked down below and out of sight, its roaring racket muffled. People hated it. For one thing, what about our high water table? If it had been built, we might be taking our imagined scenic drive splashing though a dark, ugly tunnel while lovely Santa Barbara basked above in the sun — or fog. I remember all the sketches of the “freeway in a trench.” And the cost to dig it and keep pumping the water out? Critics howled that one accident down there could mean clogging the whole thing, with survivors climbing the walls to get out. Meanwhile, all sorts of bizarre alternatives to running traffic through town emerged. One was to take all that noisy, polluting traffic out to sea, via a causeway, circumventing the town altogether, out past Stearns Wharf and the breakwater. As you can imagine, that fantasy didn’t hold water. Think of the boats crashing into it, the winter waves cascading over cars. And, horrors, think of the hazard to cruise ships now making regular port calls here? (For news of obscenely expensive mega-yachts, see below.) Some suggested routing Highway  up along Camino Cielo, along the Santa Ynez Mountains. That idea died a quick death. By this time, in the 1980s, various Caltrans district engineers had come and gone. As the cliché goes, something had to be done. And it was.

Audited. Verified. Proven.

UP OR DOWN? Hey, let’s go for a fantasy ride along Santa Barbara’s Crosstown Freeway. But wait, how come we’re going up? Climbing this bridge-like thing standing on steel stilts? That’s because it’s a darn elevated freeway, offering great views of the town, mountains, and Santa Barbara Channel. But it’s ugly, rusting, and cuts the town in half. So what goes? Well, during a 40-year battle to get rid of those old stoplights standing like sentinels along Highway , a blasted elevated freeway was what Sacramento was demanding. Santa Barbarans, being the cussed folks we are when our backs are against the wall and the Huns are attacking, fought back. We dug in our heels for years, while drivers on Highway  cursed at red lights at Santa Barbara, Anacapa, State, and Chapala streets, the only holdup between San Francisco and L.A. Traffic, light in 1960, got worse and worse. And Santa Barbarans fumed while facing up to an eight-minute delay just trying to get onto the freeway or across it. Sitting in their cars, they drank coffee, fixed their hair and made up their faces, shaved, read the paper, played board games, meditated, pondered divorce, the state of the world, and mankind, and, for all I know, had sex. Mayor Sheila Lodge sorted her mail. The pall of pollution was shocking. The City Council debated, committees were formed, and studies were launched, disputed, and filed away. Finally, there seemed an agree-

cover story


his football season at Bishop

Diego High School is one big carpe diem. Two years ago, the Cardinals had a strong sophomore class and went 11-2. Last year, they rode a school-record 12 wins into the CIF Northwest Division semifinals before suffering a defeat. Now they have 23 seniors on their roster with the ultimate goal of going all the way to a CIF championship. Tom Crawford takes nothing for granted. Bishop’s head coach of 14 years learned the necessity of thorough preparation during the 17 years he practiced law in Los Angeles, primarily as a defense attorney. A stint as a volunteer assistant coach at Birmingham High encouraged him to switch careers. When Bishop Diego offered him a full-time job, he took it despite a substantial pay cut. Crawford serves as dean of men and teaches classes in government at the 300-student coed school. His football coaching staff includes Bishop alumni Ralph Molina (Class of ’), a Santa Barbara Police lieutenant who moonlights as the team’s defensive coordinator; Steve Robles (Class of ’), a retired police officer; and Matt Capritto (Class of ), who teaches history and social studies at the school. The ever-expanding football season made for a short summer. Bishop’s varsity players reported for practice on August 5. Three weeks later, they can finally start looking forward to a game. This is the story of the Cardinals’ week of practice leading up to their season opener last Friday night, August 30, against the Santa Maria Saints.

MONDAY, AUGUST 26 Rap music booms out of a loudspeaker as the players punt, pass, and kick the ball around before the official start of practice. Coach Crawford arrives on the scene. When he first heard the lyrics to the blaring songs, he says, “I told the kids that the English department just committed suicide.” At 3:30 p.m., the speaker is turned off, and

the Cardinals organize themselves into rows and spend 10 minutes stretching and loosening up their limbs.“The Monday practice is important to get everybody on the same page,” Crawford says. “We introduce the week’s opponent in terms of schemes. We correct things that need fixing. Friday seems a long way off to a teenager, but we’ve got a lot to work on. Now, excuse me, I’m gonna yell at them.” At 3:40, Crawford positions 11 players in the Santa Maria’s defensive formation and outlines the blocking assignments of his offense. “[Crawford’s] offensive mind is amazing,” says Molina, who has two sons on this year’s team. “He brought us a college-type offense. At first, I thought, we’ve got to simplify that. But he’s so intelligent and teaches the game so well.” At 3:50, the Cardinals perform quickness and agility drills. Robles nudges the running backs with a homemade prod — a piece of PVC pipe with a boxing glove taped at the end. The practice continues for three hours in orderly 10- or 15-minute segments, punctuated by whistles and shouts. Managers place bottles of water and Gatorade around the field, and the players are allowed to take drinks whenever they’re thirsty, as long as they don’t linger at it. “Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go,” Crawford shouts. “You can drink while you’re running.” The afternoon temperature, in the 70s, is not too taxing. There is a round of technique drills by position. Robles sends the running backs through a chute that resembles a compact car wash. Instead of big brushes, the players are buffeted by six spring-loaded dummies, three on each side. Ron Heller works with the tight ends. He played that position in the NFL, earning a Super Bowl ring with the San Francisco ers. Heller joined the Bishop family by marrying a graduate of the school and sending his daughters there. “These kids have it made,” Capritto says of the caring supervision that’s devoted to the team. On the other hand, it’s a lot of hard work

for everybody.“Football is different,” Capritto says.“In basketball and baseball, you’re always playing games. We’ve put in hundreds of practices. The kids give up a lot to be out here. So many things are pulling them in different directions.”

TUESDAY, AUGUST 27 The players start every day (game days excepted) at 7 a.m. in the school’s weight room. There is a sign on the wall: “Did you work out today? Your opponent did.” They head for today’s practice at 6:30 p.m. at Santa Barbara City College’s La Playa Stadium, the field where they play their home games under a rental agreement. It has a durable carpet of artificial turf and stadium lights for night games. The evening includes a tackling drill for 10 minutes, the Cardinals’ only full contact in practice all week.“We’ve stepped back from it, partly because of the sensitivity to concussions,” Crawford says.“If it was a problem [in last week’s scrimmage] against Hueneme, we’d tackle every day this week. This is such a veteran group, we haven’t needed that.” It’s another long day for Crawford. He attended a Tri-Valley League coaches’ meeting in Oxnard Monday night and didn’t get home until 11 p.m.“I’m beat,” he says. But he does not let his players know it.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28 The Cardinals return to their school field for practice. It also serves as the baseball diamond and soccer pitch, and the grass is threadbare in patches. There is a single soccer goal, and attached to it is a banner advertising the football team’s lofty ranking by Cal-Hi Sports in 2012. Thomas Lash, a senior linebacker, says the attention they receive in the classroom keeps their priorities from getting out of whack.“We don’t slack off in class,” says Lash, who takes a history course from Capritto.“The coaches always know how you’re doing.” cont’d

THURSDAY, AUGUST 29 The temperature soars to 94 degrees, the hottest day of the year in Santa Barbara. It’s also Mass day at Bishop Diego, and all the male students must wear ties. Fortunately, at the daybefore-game football practice, the players can wear shorts instead of full gear. They linger in the shade outside the weight room before it’s time to take the field. As Braniff pulls on his jersey, a red stocking falls out. “It’s my sister’s,” he says.“It must have been in the wash.” His practice gear is laundered at cont’d p. 29 ˘ home every night. Others PAUL WELLMAN

Joe Salcedo, a 66 270-pound tackle, is being recruited by Division I colleges because of his physical attributes, but he hits the books, too. “Three of our five offensive linemen have four-point GPAs,” he says. Joe Stevenson’s grade average is 4.4. The

58, 240-pound guard wants to study engineering in college and expects this will be his last football season.“Our coaches prepare us well,” he says.“It gets tiresome, but you have to push through it. Hopefully we’ll go to the championship and leave on a good note. We’re capable of doing it as long as we stay focused and play hard.” “We can’t get ahead of ourselves,” says center Jack Braniff. “We have to treat the Santa Maria game like we haven’t proved anything this year,” Stevenson says. This practice is not perfect. Crawford grimaces when offense fumbles a pitchout. They don’t have to hear that they messed up. A minute later, he shouts,“Why are you walking back to the huddle, gentlemen?” There is blown coverage in a seven-onseven drill.“Defense, drop and give me 10 [pushups],” Molina growls.“You want to know why? Nobody’s talking. Pick up the pace, or you’ll do 300 after practice.” Capritto chimes in,“Why aren’t you running, Peter? You’re jogging. You can’t do that.” The practice goes on for more than three hours. Finally, at 6:47 p.m., Crawford announces,“Circle up. Let’s go.” The players shed their helmets and pads as they stretch their limbs. Then they gather around the coaches to hear the last word of the day.“You know it’s true: This week has been shabby,” Crawford says.“Clean it up. You’ve got to communicate and learn to do things right under pressure. It all comes down to how we handle the stuff we can control.” John Samson, a lineman known as “Cowboy,” says a prayer: “Dear God, thank you for this day. Help us in school and home. Bless us Friday. Amen.”


PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT: Agility drills are part of the regimen at Bishop Diego High’s three-hour football practices. 26

S.B. FOOTBALLER GETS PRESIDENTIAL HONOR Otto Stowe and 1973 Miami Dolphins Get Nod from Obama waiting 41 years for the moment, and when it arrived on August 20, they were instructed,“Tall guys get

in back.” “We all bent down,” Otto Stowe said, but he could not fool anybody. The 62 wide receiver was one of the taller members of the team that put together a matchless 17-0 record, capped by a 14-7 victory over the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl VII in 1973. So Stowe went to the top of the three-level riser in the East Room of the White House. Then Barack Obama entered the room with Don Shula, the team’s coach in that perfect season, and the Dolphins received a public tribute from the president of the United States. “It’s something I’ve always dreamed of,” said Stowe, a longtime Goleta resident, who made the trip to the nation’s capital with his wife, Judie Stowe. During the players’ private meetand-greet with the president before the ceremony, Stowe told him he was born in Chicago and grew up in Springfield, Illinois. Obama’s response: “Hey, you’re my homey.” Stowe was one of 31 players at the ceremony. Three teammates refused to attend for political reasons, even though team owner Stephen Ross, a staunch Republican, paid for the trip and expressed gratitude to the president. White House invitations have become commonplace for sports champions — UCSB’s 2006 soccer team was welcomed by President George W. Bush — but at the time of Miami’s success, Richard Nixon occupied the oval office, and the Watergate scandal was brewing. Also, Stowe pointed out,“Nixon was an ardent Redskins fan.” As a football team, the Dolphins were a conservative bunch, which is why current NFL fans may not have heard of Otto Stowe or even Paul Warfield, their Hall of Fame receiver. “Paul was totally awesome, but our game wasn’t throwing the football,” Stowe said.“It was pounding the line with Larry Csonka [a battering-ram fullback] and Mercury Morris. We threw 10 or 12 passes a game.” Stowe was drafted out of Iowa State in 1971. Miami went to the Super Bowl in his rookie year but lost to the Dallas Cowboys.“The next year, [Shula] was hollering in our ears,” he said. “If he didn’t like the way we practiced, he’d make us do three a day. After the eighth game, we knew we had a chance to make history.” Warfield took Stowe under his wing.“He didn’t just think of himself,” Stowe said.“Shula told him he’d have to teach me.” It paid off when Warfield was hurt and couldn’t play in the 11th game of the perfect season. In his place, Stowe caught six passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns in Miami’s 31-10 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cowboys traded for Stowe the next year and installed him as a starter. He was their leading receiver after seven games when an

He played one more year with the Denver Broncos. He spent the next several seasons on coaching staffs at Iowa State and Washington State. Then he looked to take care of some unfinished business — getting a college degree. That brought him to UCSB. “Otto wanted a school without a football team so he wouldn’t be distracted,” said Judie. She and Otto went to the same high school in Springfield and have been married more than 40 years — the last 35 in the Santa Barbara area since Stowe earned his BA in ergonomics and health studies. Stowe, 64, has emerged from pro football in better shape than most former players. He attributes his fitness to his diet — he was been a vegetarian since 1978 — and his practice of yoga.“I’d like to see more athletes get alternative, homeopathic care,” he said. He had his share of football injuries, including concussions.“It’s impossible not to get one,” he said. But he was not a plaintiff in the lawsuit that resulted last week in the NFL’s agreeing to pay $765 million to compensate brain-injured former players and support research into treatment and prevention. Could he imagine himself playing in the NFL today? “I couldn’t imagine myself out there when I was out there,” Stowe said.“I thought I’d be a basketball player. I was a center in high school because I was the only guy who could dunk. But I wasn’t tall enough to play center in college.” So he played football, and he stood tall with the Miami Dolphins in the White House. He wore an Obama/Martin Luther King button on his lapel. Even while being recognized for his part in making football history, Otto Stowe realized that a much more profound moment in history — the 50th anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech — would be celebrated a few days later. — JZ cont’d

S.B.’s Sean Simms Creates Winning Teams Online Simms’s summer reading was quite extensive, but it did not include classics, thrillers, mysteries, or romances. Those do not help him decide whom to pick on the teams he has entered into five different fantasy football leagues this fall. “I tend to make good picks,” Simms said.“I do a lot of reading and watch a lot of football. I looked at every NFL preseason game. I read the news on and corroborate it on team web pages. I always FANTASYLAND: After a career as a tight do my fact checking. end that started at Santa Barbara High I want to know who’s and ended in the NFL Europe, Sean injured and who’s Simms now puts together tough teams for going to be injured.” Fantasy Football leagues. “I had to stay C.J. Spiller of the involved somehow in football,” he said. Buffalo Bills was one of the highest-rated running backs. “His coach was quoted as saying,‘We’re going to run him until he throws up.’ ” Simms said last week.“But Spiller was just excused indefinitely from the team to deal with family issues.” Days later, Spiller returned home to his team, putting him back on the board for Simms’s remaining drafts. Simms spent a good part of his life in the reality of football. The 1992 graduate of Santa Barbara High was a tight end for the Dons and Nevada, Reno. The Dallas Cowboys signed him as a free agent, and he spent a year and a half on their practice squad. Then he played in NFL Europe in Scotland. When he returned home at the conclusion of his playing career in 1999, Simms said,“I had to stay involved somehow in football.” He works as a guest services agent at Paseo Nuevo when he isn’t checking the latest NFL news. The top priority in selecting a fantasy team, Simms said, is the running backs. Adrian Peterson of the Vikings is the likely choice of any fantasy player who lands a No.  pick. Simms identified several rookies who might prove valuable — Eddie Lacy of Green Bay, Montee Ball of Denver, and Giovani Bernard of Cincinnati. Zach Sudfeld, an undrafted tight end out of Nevada, may be the next player to rise in New England’s system. Aaron Hernandez, charged with murder, did not work out too well.“The tight end is the most evolved position in the NFL,” Simms said. He had his eye on another undrafted Patriot, wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins. Simms is a fan of the San Francisco ers “because my parents were always going for the Rams.” He asserted that fantasy football does not detract from one’s loyalty to a team.“It helps you get involved and understand the game better,” he said. He might bench a player on his fantasy team the week he is playing against the Niners. Simms brands most of his fantasy teams with the name Double-S Machine. He’s entered three leagues through and one each through and They are each composed of 10 to 14 teams. As of Monday this week, four drafts were completed. The last would take place Wednesday night on the eve of the season opener. Game day finds Simms in a room with lots of TVs — Mel’s Lounge is a favorite spot — pulling for the Niners and every player that has become his personal choice. — JZ

Carter and Gabe Molina alternate taking the snaps, bringing in the plays from Crawford. “It keeps each quarterback fresh,” says Carter. He shoots a nifty shovel pass to Gonzalez for a 49-yard score. Molina connects with Murillo on a 33-yard TD pass, and Bishop leads at halftime, 34-0. In the SBCC locker room, Crawford tells the team they won’t run up the score by throwing the ball.

“Bikes are just such an easy form of transportation; it attracts all kinds of people,” said Josh Vanasse. “Working for a bike shop, I often wonder if I’m as crazy as some of the people that come in,” said Pete Albrecht.” “He fixed a luggage cart today,” Vanasse said. Albrecht laughed: “That’s one of my favorite parts of working [here], meeting all the awesome people in the community.” The two guys work for Cranky’s Bikes on State Street and will happily tune up your twowheeled pedal pusher in between fixing luggage carts, strollers, and whatever else happens to come in off of Santa Barbara’s streets.

{ QUIZ }



ow that the dog days of summer are waning, campus life has become a hot topic for the school district. Nearly 60 high school students gathered at Santa Barbara High School at the end of August to participate in Academy of Healing Arts’ newest initiative: Peace Builders. The name of AHA!’s — a 14-year-old, S.B.based nonprofit dedicated to bettering the lives of area teens — pilot program sums up its mission: cultivating a peaceful community, increasing connections, and reducing hatred on campus. The two-day event brought together two SBHS assistant principals, Elise Simmons and Gabe Sandoval, counselor Martha Acevedo, two outreach coordinators for the district, 15 AHA! staff, and AHA! cofounders and directors Jennifer Freed and Rendy Freedman. Participants sought to build “Peace-Q”— intelligence based on compassion and inclusion — through interactive games, small group discussions, short blocks of instruction, and inspirational talks. Freed asked the students: “What can you actually do to be a Peace Builder between now and September?” Student responses included being friendly, making eye contact, coolly approaching bullies, and sitting with students who eat lunch alone. “I’ve always wanted to help other people who are bullied. Peace Builders kind of gives me the resources to do that,” Lily, an SBHS sophomore, said. During one of the sessions, each person shared one word they never wanted to be called again, and then a positive word that they wanted to hear more often. Another session included talks from AHA! staff about the history of the “n-word” and excessive use of the word “gay” at school and around town. One of AHA!’s co-facilitators, SBCC psychology student LeAndra Harris, 23, started with the youth program after feeling isolated and culture-shocked after she moved to Santa Barbara from the Bay Area when she was 16. “I never felt black until I moved here,” she recalled. Her grandmother persuaded her to join the program that she first assumed to

be “a bunch of hippie people holding hands.” But AHA! jump-started her own healing and allowed her to come to appreciate Santa Barbara, she said. “What I love about AHA! is that it’s straight up,” she said. “Love yourself. Be concerned with you first before you comment on somebody else.” Seven years after her first meeting, Harris said she’s excited and kind of shocked because the high school kids today are so receptive to the initiative. “It’s evolved into an amazing program,” she said. Peace Builders also advocates for what is increasingly called Restorative Approaches, a fairly new discipline model that shies away from black-and-white consequences like detention and suspension and instead emphasizes personal responsibility, discussion, and repair. The goal is to first prevent offenses and then to teach offenders to resolve conflict, self-reflect, and make amends, which according to AHA!, reduces future offenses. “Bullies are not happy people. They need help, too,” Freed said. Supported by Superintendent David Cash, Restorative Approaches will be implemented at SBHS, Goleta Valley Junior High, La Cumbre Junior High, and La Colina Junior High this school year after it piloted last year at Santa Barbara Junior High. “It’s very important to me. We have a real deep commitment for change by our staff,” Cash said. “Our goal is to keep kids in school.” AHA! recruited a range of SBHS students recognized by school staff as natural leaders for Peace Builders. Students received either a $100 stipend or community-service hours for participating in the two-day event. Meeting will continue throughout the school year at lunchtime on the third Thursday of each month as a club open to all students. “Honestly, I feel like we can sit here for however long and discuss the things we can do … but I don’t think anything will change if we’re not willing to make the effort,” said Michelle, a high school senior. “Change starts — Kelsey Brugger with us first.”

ITCHY SCRATCHY: Mosquitoes have plagued Earth for 100 million years.

am writing this from a dusty campsite in a remote corner of Northern California. Despite dousing myself in DEET last night and donning my Don’t Judge Me I’m Camping long johns (which protected every inch of skin from mosquitoes), I’ve just located a large red welt on my left arm that is begging to be scratched. How did those little buggers get through my well-planned layers of defense? Anyone who has seen the movie Jurassic Park knows that mosquitoes have plagued our planet for 100 million years, and over that period, they’ve become very good at ruthlessly pursuing blood meals. As a public-health physician, I get lots of questions about mosquitoes and the dangers of West Nile Virus. WNV is transmitted to humans through mosquito bites and has gained infamy in recent years for some well-publicized cases where the infected person developed progressive neurological disease and eventually died. The fact that there is no treatment and no vaccine adds to public alarm when one of these cases occurs. But the truth is these cases are incredibly rare. During the past five years, our county has had only had one case of WNV, and it was not fatal. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only one in five people who are infected will develop symptoms, which are usually minor (fever, headache, fatigue); only about one percent of infected people will develop serious illness. Hopefully, these statistics will help to relieve worry, although they won’t relieve the annoying welts you’ll get from our ever-present, ever-biting mosquito population. For that, you’ll need to take some preventive measures. First, mosquito-proof your home. Eliminate standing water in gutters, pool covers, pet water dishes, and bird baths on a regular basis. Next, make sure all open windows and doors have solid, hole-free screens in place. Mosquitoes are weak flyers, so placing a large fan on your patio can also help keep them at bay. The peak hours for mosquito bites are from dusk to dawn, so covering legs and arms with protective clothing is wise. On a full moon, they are 500 times more active, according to the American Mosquito Control Association. Which repellent I recommend depends on your personal preference. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon, eucalyptus, and para-menthane-diol products will provide longer-lasting protection. Spraying clothing with an EPA-registered repellent creates an additional barrier. Citronella candles, despite excellent marketing, only have a very mild anti-mosquito effect. But what if you still get bites, despite faithfully following all of the above advice? Scientists have studied more than 350 odor compounds produced by human skin and drawn some helpful conclusions about what smells attract these insects. It turns out that mosquitoes, like my German uncle, love the smells of beer, Limburger cheese, and pretty perfume. The Limburger cheese research helped explain why they are so drawn to stinky feet (which smell like the cheese — yuck!). They are also drawn to pregnant women, who emit a higher amount of carbon dioxide from their breath, and to people with blood type O. According to research, the insects can smell your blood type before they bite. To dispel some myths, the following things do not deter mosquitoes: eating garlic, vitamin B12, bananas, or mystical campfire dances (sorry, kids). The limited research on back-porch bug zappers suggests they aren’t very effective, either. Although I don’t plan on having Limburger cheese and beer for dinner, I expect I’ll probably get a few more bites just sitting around the campfire tonight. It’s a reminder that mosquitoes still outrank me on the evolutionary food chain, and I’m okay with that. After all, it’s a great excuse to sport my tie-dyed long johns and ■ frumpy camping hat. I’ll take it.

What’s For


Food Sovereignty Week Comes to Santa Barbara


by Lucas Ryden

ur food system is under heavy fire. Decades of scientific research and investigative journalism have come together in a wave of protest against the ways in which food is produced, distributed, and consumed in the United States. At the heart of this debate is the issue of “food sovereignty,” an umbrella term that seeks to answer a profoundly complicated and timely question: Who decides what we eat? This question is the focus of Food Sovereignty Week, a series of public events organized by the Orfalea Foundation and Share Our Strength that will take place September 9-15 in Santa Barbara. Highlights include a free screening of the documentary A Place at the Table on Tuesday, September 10, followed by a discussion titled The Future of Hunger with celebrated author Jan Poppendieck on September 12. The events conclude with the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s second annual Table of Life Gala on Sunday, September 15. Although each event explores different issues through different perspectives, they share a common premise that public policies in the United States have failed to create an equitable food system that fosters both environmental and human health. “Food Sovereignty Week is an opportunity for concerned people and organizations to come together and learn about progress in the areas of hunger alleviation, food literacy, and food system reform,” says Lois Mitchell, president of the Orfalea Foundation and one of the chief organizers of the events. “It’s all connected. When people understand how food affects their health, their communities, and their children’s ability to learn, they strive to make better choices.” Mitchell says Food Sovereignty Week developed organically, starting with a desire to bring author and sociologist Jan Poppendieck to Santa Barbara. Poppendi-

eck is also featured in A Place at the Table, so the Orfalea Foundation decided a screening of the film would be an engaging way to build momentum for her discussion. The timing of these two events coincided perfectly with the Foodbank’s annual Table of Life Gala, and suddenly Food Sovereignty Week was born. “The screening of A Place at the Table provides some context for and promotes the work of Jan Poppendieck,” says Erin Weber, special events coordinator for the Orfalea Foundation.“Those two events are either low or nocost events, and their purpose is to raise awareness for how we arrived at our current circumstances and what we can do to change them.” The week will conclude with the Table of Life Gala, which provides fundraising avenues for donors to contribute to the issues addressed at the first two events. According to Mitchell, philanthropy performs a pivotal role in many cases like this, where social-benefit programs have been veritably abandoned or avoided by the public sector. All proceeds from the Gala will support the Foodbank’s Feed the Future program to advance nutritional health and food literacy for children of all ages.


A Place At the Table screens for free

September 10, 7 p.m., at Marjorie Luke Theatre. On September 12, The Future of Hunger: An Evening with Jan Poppendieck takes place at the same time and place (tickets are $5 online and $10 at the door).

n Santa Barbara, there’s a fundraiser as old as Beyoncé and Natalie Portman. That’s Taste of the Town, heading into its 32nd year for the event this September 8, as it keeps raising money for the Arthritis Foundation. If you ask honorary cochair Tina Takaya from Opal Restaurant what makes this, of all the noble Santa Barbara fundraisers, special, she says, “It’s the very first one. We’ve had 32 years to shore it up. For instance, this year I got them to change to really good Dine deliwine glasses.

The event isn’t over until the last Ca’ Dario sage sizzles in butter alongside one of its ravioli. There will also be more room this year, too, as the usual Connoisseurs’ Circle gala meal will happen two days before on September 6, and not concurrent with the main tasting. “Every year we get more efficient, more … fun,” Takaya says. “People felt they ended up at the tail end of the main event after the Connoisseurs’ Circle meal, so we pushed it back this year.” That meal will feature the cooking of Chef Patrice Martineau from El Encanto and crazy goodies like a sea urchin canapé and an appetizer that runs as follows: marinated tartar of hamachi, baked sweet pepper, minted hummus, Mojave raisin, and Greek yogurt. Does it even begin to matter what the main is after that? Takaya and her husband, Richard Yates, have been cochairs for seven years now because, she says, “This event always felt like an important one. Arthritis hits almost everyone [actually, one in five adults] and lots of children, too. But if they get the help they need, it’s easier for them. It’s very inspiring working with all the people at the Arthritis Foundation. They’re a joy to be around.” — George Yatchisin

MECCA: A pilgrimage to The French Laundry is a delicious, once-in-a-lifetime must.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream My Trip to The French Laundry


ourmets (not mere, trendy foodies) dream of Thomas Keller’s French Laundry the obsessive way the starstruck dream of George Clooney or Marion Cotillard, except all the gourmets need to attain their dream is to be quick on Open Table or the phone, at exactly 10 a.m. two months prior to the day they care to dine … and to be able to pay $270 per person, for nine courses and service, with tax and alcohol additional. But you don’t quibble cost with Keller (I can’t say for Clooney or Cotillard), for you’re in for the culinary experience of your life. And sure, that’s what everyone says. But that’s because everyone is treated intensely well at this Napa Valley landmark to cuisine. If you ask to keep your menus, you’re told they’ll be ready when you leave, in an embossed folder that will wow the designer in you. If you ask to peek into the kitchen, you’ll get the chance, and meet a sous chef (especially if you’re leaving around midnight). And the crazy professional wait staff — even the person who seems to be bussing knows everything about each dish — will never clink one plate unpleasantly when clearing or lay on the faux chummy, but will help you to perfect wine pairings (via iPad), and make clever jokes, like when explaining one dish and ending,“and that’s Pommes Maxim’s, basically the most magnificent potato chip you’ll ever eat.” The Laundry manages magnificent regularly, making each ingredient taste more than you ever knew it could. I skipped the Hen Egg Ravioli with a heavy snow of black winter truffle (for a $75 supplement) and didn’t regret it a bit, instead receiving a revelatory “Salade de Légumes Vertes” in which you couldn’t quite tell if you had a preserved green tomato or Persian cucumber on your fork until you tasted it, as they were cut in the exact same scoop. It’s food you have to consider, but it is truly considerable. Much of the produce comes from the large garden carefully attended across Yountville’s Washington Street from the restaurant, so it couldn’t get much more local. Not that local is the only goal — putting the absolute best on the plate is. So, there are Island Creek Oysters from Massachusetts in the “Oysters and Pearls,” a Snake River Farms charcoal-grilled “Calotte de Bœuf,” and a ORDER 13-14 SEASON TICKETS TODAY! sautéed fillet of Mediterranean turbot.

Each taste is essential, from the classic salmon tartare cornet with sweet red onion crème fraîche “IMPOSSIBLE Kolo LP — has there ever been more elegant finger food? — to the “Grilled Cheese” cheese course, an at best inch-wide sandwich that’s 90 percent Cabot clothbound cheddar and a mere 10 percent, yet still identifiably there, bread. At meal’s end it becomes clear why a woman exiting when we arrived quipped to her dinner-mate,“Quick, let’s leave before they give us another course.” You get to opt for one of two desserts (how does “Dark Treacle,” Devil’s Food, Valrhona Chocolate “Marquise,” Lyle’s Golden Syrup and Marshall Farms Burnt Honey Ice Cream sound?), and you’ve had a cheese course and palate cleanser, but then there’s a gorgeous wooden box opening offering you six different house-made (but of course) chocolate truffles like espresso stout (“Take as many as you want”), tins of shortbreads (the meal extends for days this way), saran-wrapped caramels, light and dark, plus the old signature dessert “Coffee and Doughnuts,” dropped off gratis, the dough fried crisp yet so moist and delicate inside, the coffee actually cappuccino semifreddo frozen beneath steamed milk. There’s nothing precious or cute about these mignardises, as the menu bills them. Nothing is frivolous. Nothing is mere grace note or garnish. Every single thing on a dish, every last course is entrée, if often no more than a bite. It’s a meal that says,“Pay the heck attention” and teaches you how and why to do so. No wonder the meal is so expensive, for it allows you to stop the clock, to — George Yatchisin give pleasure its full and timeless due.

SIPS AND SMILES: Sean Larkins opened Vino Divino in 2004.



Join us at SOhO to sample a silly, extravagant number of outstanding local wines... Saturday, September 21st, 2013, from noon to 3 PM.

Obscure Regions and Varietals at

Vino Divino


ine is a profoundly humbling hobby. Just when you think you’ve found the latest bang-for-buck regions (like cabernet franc from Chinon in France’s Loire Valley) or swerved ahead of the curve on forgotten varietals (like pelaverga from northern Italy), something new smacks the smug grin o your face, reminding that the world of wine is an ever-evolving yet millennia-old industry you’ll never fully tame. Last month, my regional wake-up came in the form of a vibrant roussanne from Savoie in the French Alps, while the varietal revelation was delivered from Paso Robles in a lush but limber grape called marselan, a hybrid between grenache and cabernet sauvignon. The former, from nursery-turned-winery Domaine Jean Vullien, and latter, from Benjamin and Nadine Spencer’s “microâ€? label Leojami, were just some of what’s on the shelves at Vino Divino, the small but amply stocked wine shop on De la Vina Street that Sean and Gabby Larkins opened in 2004. We also indulged in a Crozes-Hermitage syrah from David Reynaud’s Domaine Les Bruyères in the northern RhĂ´ne, just to complete a trio that would satisfy anyone who geeks out on the mysterious mix of history and happenstance that leads to any given bottle. For nearly a decade, these sorts of discoveries have been available daily at Vino Divino, but loyal customers really pack it in for the Friday-evening tastings, which are scheduled sporadically but always feature ďŹ ve or more wines to try. That enthusiastic sharing of knowledge is in part what prompted Larkins to open his shop after many years of working for others in the wine business, from retail jobs (his ďŹ rst was at Wine Time on State Street) to brokering (where he was occasionally forced to sell wines he didn’t like) to working tasting rooms.“Out of all the jobs I had,â€? Larkins told me between sips, “this was the most fun, the shop.â€? Today, Vino Divino stocks 400 to 600 bottlings from about 300 producers, with a wide variance in pricing.“People see us as a mom-and-pop shop and think it’s only expensive stu,â€? said Larkins.“But I sell a lot of stu that’s $6.99 and $7.99.â€? To help his customers ďŹ nd the best deals, he runs an extensive website and publishes a newsletter, which drives sales, especially of the geekier stu. Here are some more notes on the three wines we tried. Domaine Jean Vullien’s Chignin-Bergeron: Though roussanne

is known for being very dense and oily, the higher, colder climate of the French Alps must pack in the acid because this is much lighter on its feet than usual but with lots of avor layers that keep unfolding in the glass. “This roussanne is clean — more refreshing than normal,â€? agreed Larkins, who sells this one for $20. Leojami’s RÆd Red: RZB Vineyard, located in the breezy Templeton Gap area, is focused on “international and experimentalâ€? varieties, and its one-acre patch of marselan is the only known planting of the grenache-cab hybrid in the United States. The wine packs in the dense jammy fruits of the cab but lightens up with the juicier elements of the grenache.“This is a geeky wine, but it’s totally for everybody,â€? said Larkins, who oers this for $18. Domaine Les Bruyères’s Crozes-Hermitage: Though respected as a grape grower in the northern RhĂ´ne Valley since 1955, the Reynaud family didn’t start making their own wine until 2003 when then 28-year-old David — grandson of founder Georges Reynaud — jumped in, turning the whole process biodynamic two years later. The wine, which sells at Vino Divino for $32, brings healthy doses of eucalyptus and menthol, oering up a slice of one of the world’s greatest wine regions for a relatively modest price tag.

Operatic ESCAPES


work to date. Rather than vesting things in a crisp pop package, tracks on Unrest bring several styles to the table. “Satellite Call” is vocally layered and ethereal; “Brave,” cowritten with fun.’s Jack Antonoff, uses a synth-based drum beat as its anchor; and “Hercules” mixes elements of electronica and staccato piano to great effect. Despite the various up-tempo tracks, Unrest is wrapped in melancholy that speaks to the tumult in the singer’s life recently. In the past year, Bareilles separated from her longtime boyfriend, moved from L.A. to New York City, and split with her band, who has been with her since the beginning of her career. For fans, the result of the upheaval will be on display — for better or worse — when Bareilles takes the stage at the Santa Barbara Bowl this week. For the first time, the singer will be a solo act.“I’m gonna bring my guitars and my ukulele, and essentially it’s just me on stage,” she said.“I’ve never done it, which is why I’m facing a big fear … it’s very raw.” Bareilles coheadlines the Brave Enough tour with OneRepublic at the Santa Barbara Bowl this Tuesday, September 10, at 7 p.m. For tickets and more information, call 962-7411 or — Michelle Drown visit



t’s been a really introspective year for me. A lot of heartbreak and heartache, but I feel a lot of expansion,” said singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles in a recent radio interview with New York’s . WPLJ. It just takes one listen to her latest record, The Blessed Unrest, to hear the truth of that statement; it’s a raw and deeply personal album that sits with — and reflects upon — loss, love, and courage. A native Californian, Bareilles rose to fame in 2007 with the release of her single “Love Song,” which hit number one on the Billboard Pop  chart. Since then, the piano-pounding musician has garnered three Grammy nominations and amassed a devoted fan base with her pop sensibilities and stunning vocal range. With Unrest, Bareilles explores new territory both lyrically and sonically.“For a while there I got really excited about the juxtaposition of saying something that was really sort of dark and sassy and pointed,” Bareilles told Billboard magazine. “Like ‘Love Song’ or [her other hit single] ‘King of Anything’ they are basically telling someone off, but you wrap it up in a sunny-sounding song. That to me was interesting, and I was playing a lot with that [on previous records]. More recently I’ve gotten a little more direct.” This straightforward approach sees Bareilles creating some of her most dynamic



BEST-KEPT SECRETS Art Show to Benefit Gaviota Coast

Art and environmental preservation will go hand in hand when Save Naples, Gaviota Coastal Conservancy, and the Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment (SCAPE) come together for September’s st Thursday at Casa de la Guerra.

Pure Bathing Culture follows up last year’s selftitled debut EP with its full-length debut, Moon Tides, a swooning album that aims high and falls slightly short. It’s evident that a lot of work was put into the LP to sculpt its lethargic temperament, but the songs seep from one to the next without real variance or notable exceptions. Sarah Versprille’s voice hones the likeness of Kate Bush or Victoria Legrand, and Daniel Hindman’s elastic guitars emulate Real Estate, which together makes for a sound that seems to stretch time. The problem is simply that Moon Tides feels like a hassle-free album; any perceived conflict would create an interesting narrative, but PBC chooses to stay in a diluted comfort zone. At its best, the band’s soothing nature works in creating pretty, atmospheric soundscapes. But at its worst it can feel overbearing, kind of like being waterboarded with Sleepytime tea. — Emerson Malone

Radvanovsky stovsky and Sondra IN HD: Dmitri Hvoro Verdi. by e tor va era’s Il Tro perform in the Met Op There’s something incredibly luxurious about stepping out of the hot sun and into the Music Academy’s Hahn Hall for one of the Metropolitan Opera’s HD programs, and this week you will have three chances to do so in a row. On Saturday, September 7, at 2 p.m., the opera will be David McVicar’s April 2011 production of Giuseppe Verdi’s Il Trovatore, and, in addition to four world-class singers in the leading roles, it’s got everything one could ask for in an opera — mysterious gypsy women, infants switched at birth, kidnapping, self-poisoning, hidden identities, and of course some of the repertoire’s most memorable music. On Sunday, September 8, prepare to do it again with the greatest operatic gypsy woman ever, George Bizet’s Carmen. Elina Garanca and Roberto Alagna star in the Met’s production, which was praised as “gripping and brilliant” when it premiered in 2010. Finally, for those lucky enough to have Monday afternoon, September 9, free, a most decadent treat awaits — Puccini’s Turandot, in Franco Zeffirelli’s extravagant 2009 production and featuring Maria Guleghina as Turandot, Marina Poplavskaya as Liu, Marcello Giordani as Calaf, and Samuel Ramey as Timur. There’s no aria in all of music more thrilling than the legendary tenor solo “Nessun dorma,” and you haven’t really heard it until you’ve experienced it as part of the flow of the complete work. This mini-festival of greatest hits hints at the greatness to come in the 2013-14 season of the Met Live in HD, which resumes at the Music Academy’s Hahn Hall on Saturday, October 5, at 9:55 a.m. with Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. Tickets for this week’s Best of the Met screenings, as well as subscriptions for the 2013-14 Live in HD season, are available now at or by calling 969-8787. — Charles Donelan

Where Am I? Abstract Landscape, featuring Cynthia Martin, John Baran, and Kenneth Ober. At MichaelKate. Shows through September 29. Reviewed by Charles Donelan


9 thAnnual GVAA Art Festival at Stow House Saturday Sept. 14 11AM to 5PM

Gary Forssell

bstract paintings and landscapes tend to be thought of as opposites — except by painters, who know better. Many abstract paintings derive their compositional logic from the conventions of traditional landscape painting, and many landscapes borrow their most pungent effects from the gestural vocabulary of abstraction. Abstract Landscape is a powerful three-artist show that challenges the conventional abstract/representational divide with wit, clarity, and ravishing displays of color. Although Cynthia Martin, John Baran, and Kenneth Ober take different routes, each of these painters has arrived at an innovative place where the practices of painterly abstraction meet a revisionist approach to the idea of the landscape. As John Baran is also a highly trained landscape architect, one might expect his work to be the most grounded, but in fact that is almost exactly wrong. It’s not that Baran’s paintings are not informed by his work and scholarship; it’s that for him, the leap to painting is something that occurred at 30,000 feet, as he gazed out of an airliner window en route from New York to Santa Barbara. To his credit, Baran has so thoroughly transformed this point of departure through the process of painting that the end result offers no obvious visual reference to his bird’s-eye vision. What his paintings do offer are: washes, streaks, smears, and even the occasional firm line, all animated by a sophisticated nonrepresentational palette. Baran cites the polymath artist/designer Isamu Noguchi as an important influence, and it’s easy to detect the inspiration of that modernist master in this man’s contemporary vision. In Ken Ober’s sensuous canvases, painstaking analysis of the subtle interaction of colors meets a truly heroic level of commitment to each individual mark. These shimmering visions of nature immerse, rather than orient, the viewer in the landscape. Ober has three major series represented in this show — Grasslands, Seascapes, and Starscapes — and all of them benefit from the impressive way this artist builds giant images out of tiny strokes of the auto detailing tool he uses instead of a conventional brush. His big “Grassland # Great Plains” makes a thrilling statement in the MichaelKate space. It’s like someone threw open a barn door onto another green world. Cynthia Martin’s work reflects her belief that good art should, in addition to being extravagantly beautiful, make some kind of point. Her large paintings of sunlit clouds include an ingenious second element: bright sidebars made up of the same colors she used to paint the clouds, but arrayed as a vertical stack of geometric stripes and finished with the glossy surface of a custom car paint job. Martin, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley before it was as fully developed as it is today, is responding to her understanding of the fact that these brilliantly colorful sunset cloud formations indicate the presence in our atmosphere of various pollutants. Like the diptych pictures themselves, her art’s point has two parts. One is that the natural world is evanescent — no two sunsets are ever exactly the same. The other is that these ominous post-industrial clouds have occurred as a result of the human tendency to extract so-called natural resources in ways that may contradict the very idea of nature. Martin’s elegant, yet challenging images combine aesthetics and environmental awareness in a ■ way that provokes a most welcome feeling of wonder.

Naked Shakes Take Hatlen Theater

ROYALTY BETRAYED: Duncan (Michael Morgan, center) grants Macbeth ( Jeff Mills, center right) the title Thane of Cawdor in front of the king’s soldiers.

by Charles Donelan


t 6 p.m. on a Monday in late August, not all the students at UCSB are headed to the dorms or to the dining commons. On the big stage inside the school’s Hatlen Theater, the 16 undergraduates who make up this year’s Naked Shakes program are warming up, and it’s not your usual stretching and vocal exercises. Instead, these actors, who are wearing all black, right up to the stretchy black hoods on their heads, are handling six-foot wooden staffs. Theater faculty member Jeff Mills leads the routine, calling out strike targets — “shoulder, leg, shoulder, flank, flank, head, groin”— and when he moves to a big drum downstage right and begins pounding out a rhythm, the students pair off and fight, their staffs smacking together in rough synchronization. As they stop to catch their breath after the first round, choreographer

Christina McCarthy offers this note: “Aim for those strike points! I’m seeing sticks aimed at other sticks, but that’s not it. When you swing for the head, swing for the head, not the other staff.” Is this a training program for ninjas? No, the rehearsal is for director Irwin Appel’s new production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and Jeff Mills, in addition to teaching stage combat, will play the title role. He will be joined by Michael Morgan, the theater department’s professor of speech, who will play Duncan, and by the 13 women and three men of Naked Shakes, a summer-long immersion in one of Shakespeare’s plays that Professor Appel, the director of the UCSB BFA Actor Training Program, has been leading since 2006. Stripped of all but the most essential props and costumes (hence the “Naked” part), these productions focus on presenting the energy and action of Shakespeare’s language in its most raw, vibrant, and exciting form. In previous years the program has mounted its outstanding productions of Shakespeare classics The Merchant of Venice, Measure for Measure, and Romeo and Juliet in the relative intimacy of UCSB’s Performing Arts Theater, but this season the show moves to the larger, proscenium-style Hatlen across the way. In part, the switch to a bigger stage reflects Appel’s desire to accommodate the boldly expressive movement of fight sequences such as the one I witnessed in rehearsal, but underlying that logistical consideration is a deeper sense that in this season Naked Shakes will move a big step closer to the core of the UCSB Theater season. In the spring of 2014, Appel will return to the Hatlen with a production of Equivocation, a contemporary work by playwright Bill Cain that explores the Gunpowder Plot, an unsuccessful insurrection against James I, and its impact on the composition of you guessed it AT LEFT : Macbeth — Shakespeare’s Macbeth. lifts Lady Macbeth This one-two punch of Shake( Madelyn Robinson) , speare and his world aims straight his “dearest partner for the heads of incoming UCSB of greatness.” first-year students, as Macbeth, ABOVE : Macbeth is which will be performed over surrounded by spirits. two weekends — Friday-Sunday,

September 6-8, and Saturday-Sunday, October 5-6 — is a required part of the university’s Freshman Experience program.“We want to turn this whole incoming class on to the ways that we as a department think about Shakespeare,” Appel told me, “so we’re going into the Hatlen, which gives us the looming darkness of a medieval castle, and we’re taking with us the spirit of anarchy that we enjoy in stuff like Breaking Bad.” “We’re big fans of Breaking Bad around here,” added Jeff Mills. The choice to use faculty actors alongside the students in this Macbeth represents both a departure from previous seasons of Naked Shakes, which relied on all-student casts, and a continuation of the trend toward faculty collaboration onstage that can be traced back to Risa Brainin’s Launch Pad program, in which faculty members Appel and Anne Torsiglieri have appeared. Michael Morgan, whose performance as the father in Jeff Mills’s production of Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice was one of the spring 2013 theater season’s highlights, praised the student cast of Macbeth, saying that he loved “the adrenaline rush of being onstage with them,” adding with a laugh that “sometimes, to be ready for rehearsal at 6, I need a nap.” For Jeff Mills, the player/coach role harkens back to his work with Boxtales, the movement-forward Santa Barbara theater group in which he has worked with Michael Andrews, Matt Tavianini, and scores of other talented Santa Barbarans. For dedicated theatergoers, one of the great pleasures of this production will be to observe another impressive instance of stylistic cross-pollination, as Mills brings the acrobatics of Boxtales into contact with the speech act–centered classical stage universe created by Irwin Appel. But what about Macbeth? In case you were homesick that month of 10th-grade English, it’s the one with the witches who influence a man and his wife to conspire to kill the king. There’s blood, guts, ghosts, and plenty of overwhelmingly beautiful poetry. Traveling in and out of darkness, the play traces a man’s journey toward ultimate nothingness, and it revels in the intensity of his perception of what he has lost. Macbeth will be at UCSB’s Hatlen Theater Friday-Sunday, September 6-8, at 7 p.m., and on Saturday, September 7, at 2 p.m. Admission for this weekend’s performances is free. Macbeth will return Saturday-Sunday, October 5-6. For more information, visit www.theaterdance or call 893-7221.

How to Relate to the Spiritual Teacher with Dharma teacher Bart Mendel

A genuine teacher is essential to the spiritual path. Since the introduction of Buddhism to the West, misconceptions abound regarding the student- teacher relationship. Buddhism provides a clear progression of how to relate to the teacher, from elder, to spiritual friend, to guru. This class will explore how to take this journey with honesty & openness, without abdicating our own intelligence.

Sept 12, 19, 26, (no class Oct 3) then Oct 10, 17, and 24

7-9 pm

Appreciated by students for his humor and insight, Bart Mendel brings a unique perspective to his teaching through mixing the Dharma with worldly challenges. Bart founded Bodhi Path Santa Barbara where he was resident teacher for over 10 years.

e are young. And so are the nights — as in Most Nights, fun.’s summer tour. Okay, so technically the record’s middle-aged at this point. But the tour will be young at heart when it makes its stop at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Saturday, September 7. Look at the band’s accolades: Their songs have been featured in countless commercials. They won two Grammys this year. They were the first rock band to have a song (“We Are Young”) enter the Billboard Hot  chart at the top spot in over a decade. (The last band to do so was Nickelback with “How You Remind Me” back in 2001.) Not bad for a band that had to lower the case of their “f” and add a period to their name because a Scandinavian death metal band already had snagged “Fun.” Aside from having a name that’s fodder for terrible puns, fun. aims to live up to their moniker — especially during shows. Guitarist Jack Antonoff says they intend to maintain elements of intimacy and showmanship for their packed arena crowds. “There’s a saying that when we play in the club, we try to bring the arena show, and when we’re in the arena, we AUTO-TUNE IN: Genre crossers fun.

Unfortunately, the problems started immediately with Jason Bonham (son of late Zeppelin drummer John) opening with “Rock and Roll,” the last song Robert Plant played at the bowl last June, making everything feel bass-ackwards. Besides, Bonham’s band, even with its DNA privileges, is still a tribute band, with all the mental disharmonies accompanying such ventures.

SUNSHINE DAY: Labor Day found Jason Mraz onstage at the Bowl for a late-afternoon set to benefit Life Rolls On.


he Santa Barbara Bowl welcomed Jason Mraz on a scorching Labor Day for an early show as part of his Tour Is a Four Letter Word outing. The late afternoon set list paired well with the long weekend, as well as the night’s do-good message. Nonprofit Life Rolls On (LRO) was the beneficiary of Monday’s concert supporting spinal-cord-injury research and quality-of-life support. Founder Jesse Billauer and Mraz worked closely together and put the show on to honor the 17th anniversary of Billauer’s surfing accident, which happened when he was 17 years old. Mraz’s band proved to be a solid pop/jazz ensemble that included a saxophonist, a trumpet player, and a bassist, all of whom contributed notable solos throughout the show. Mraz also reworked some numbers, including inserting quick vibrato phrases into “Only Human” and “Live High.” Later,“The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)” got mashed up with Harry Belafonte’s “Day-O” song, successfully injecting the show with a necessary dose of reggae. The laid-back vibes carried over to “You and I Both,” which Mraz used as a bridge to his cover of Bob Marley’s “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.” A variety of guests were welcomed up to the mike, too, including drummer Michael “Leroy” Bram, percussionist Toca Rivera, and budding singer Cody Lovaas. Together, the crew sang “Rescue,” which Mraz dedicated to all of the volunteers of LRO.

ans of the artfully romantic, atmospheric cinematic baths that are Wong Kar-wai’s best films — especially the dreamy, fragmented, and über-sensuous In the Mood for Love — may have a head-scratching disconnect moment upon hearing that his latest, The Grandmaster, is a martial arts film. Has he gone over to the dark, B-movie side? Not exactly, and on more than one count. Principally, the famed Hong Kong–based director, with no small help from poetic cinematographer Philippe Le Sourd, brings his signature style to this mini-epic tale of previously segregated north and south Chinese Kung Fu schools coming together and entering general, westernworld attention from before WWII through the early 1950s. From the earliest fight scene, in slo-mo in the rain, through to the train platform fight scene late in the film, we get the sense that Wong’s interest in “action” movie dynamics is more related to dance and cinematic kinetics than pugilistic “action movie” chops. On another count, the very world of Kung Fu, in its essential, historic form, is much more about “precision” and a “code of conduct” than the cheesier, bone-crunching and drive-in theater-ready flicks suggest. Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Wong’s recurring hero of choice, is again in fine, coolly magnetic form as the martial arts guru Ip Man, from the southern “Wing Chun” school of Kung Fu, who fights the female Gong Er (the calmly stunning Zhang Ziyi) — a k a “ Hands” — the offspring of a northern grandmaster.

I KNOW KUNG FU: Tony Leung Chiu Wai is martial arts guru Ip Man in The Grandmaster. Wong’s expertise in sublimated sexual dynamics beneath lustrous surfaces warms up a few scenes between our fated protagonists. The Grandmaster tells the tale of Ip Man’s travails and triumphs, from the late ’30s through the punishing era of Japanese occupation, and then his politically alienated life in Hong Kong as Communist China cuts its ties there. But there is a grander underlying story afoot here, about the transition from the older order of Chinese life, the rude awakening and tragedies of modern warfare imposed by the Japanese, and fleeting glimpses of life beyond the ’50s. As memorable as many of its parts are, the film’s whole feels a bit confused. Nonetheless, Wong once again demonstrates that “romanticism” doesn’t have to be a dirty or ■ cheapening word at the movies.

Voicing Concerns In a World… . Lake Bell, Fred Melamed, and Demetri Martin star in a film written and directed by Bell. Reviewed by Josef Woodard


n a world where booming, authoritative male voices lord over the industry of voice-over, one movie at least dares to imagine the tale of an intrepid female making her way into that testosterone-fueled world. Welcome to In a World… and meet Carol Solomon, the accent-virtuoso, freelance voice coach, and aspiring voiceover professional, the daughter of a veteran in the select A-team world of movie trailer talkers. These are the kinds of hidden-inplain-sight voices heard by millions in coming attractions, but actually seen and identified in the flesh by only a nerdy few. Clearly, our protagonist character — and its real-life creator, Lake Bell — has a keen gift for finding voices and making others’ voices her own. She voyeuristically records ambient discussions around her and is suddenly in the running for a coveted movie-trailer gig, challenging her male counterparts, including her father (Fred Melamed) and a narcissistic voiceover stud (Ken Marino). In In a World…, part of the pleasure is being guided into a niche dimension of the media universe seldom dealt with in a feature film, and catching sight and sound — especially sound, in a film so sound- and voice-obsessed — of said subculture. But another treat here is the sense of discovery in the ever-discovery-hungry world of indie film. Is Lake Bell an auteur in the making? An actress on small and large screens, slowly making her way into the realm of the publicly recognizable, she suddenly bumps up a few notches in a single bound with her witty In a World…, winner of the

SUNDANCE STUNNER: Comedian Demetri Martin is Louis in the winner of Sundance’s Best Screenplay Award, In a World… . Best Screenplay Award at this year’s Sundance Festival. Bell wrote, directed, and stars in (oh, and produced) the film, and makes a strong impression in all three modes. Her dazzling filmmaking debut was, in indie-style, made on the cheap and on the quick, with a game cast — some of which have graced hipper modern television fare, like a ’stache-free Nick Offerman, from Parks and Recreation; TV and Woody Allen film vet Melamed; even Eva Longoria and Cameron Diaz show up. It all comes across with a fresh comic zing, while subtly imparting a message about the importance of redressing a male-dominated field and, ■ trying, to quote the Heart song, to “even it up.”

SOMEBODY’S WATCHING ME: Eric Bana is a barrister serving in a high-profile terrorism case in Closed Circuit.

Closed Circuit (96 mins.; R: language, brief violence)

[ ]

Paranoia as a suspense device is clearly still viable, as this political thriller amply illustrates. The best scenes of the movie include our main protagonists, two special barristers serving in a high-level terrorist trial (played by the great Rebecca Hall and the formidable Eric Bana), as they walk unprotected around London. Everywhere they go people stare at them. In one great scene, a couple stops and asks Hall’s character to take a picture of them with their smart phone, turning a contemporary annoyance into a full-bodied threat. Besides the live menace, there are lenses pointed at them everywhere, and since the enemy might be within the state itself, our heroes soon realize they cannot win. It’s just like real life. This is simultaneously Closed Circuit’s great strength and weakness. It’s not that a happy ending is impossible — no spoilers supplied here — but it is hard to tweak victory from the devastating depth of conspiracy surrounding. Contrarily, the whole movie feels consequential and full of consequence. Director John Crowley, who brought the under-rated A Behanding in Spokane to Broadway, keeps the players interestingly separate just before he draws the whole thing fairly taut. (The violence is sudden and satisfying, too.) But there are only a few places to go with such a dark world view. You may view bank cameras differently for a while. Then again, you may also feel that the last scenes aren’t quite earned by the script. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

Getaway (90 mins.; PG-13: intense action, violence and mayhem throughout, some rude gestures, language)

Because Spring Breakers was such a bizarre great film, the oddity of Disney girl Selena Gomez starring in it just seemed part of the spectrum of weird stuff found therein. 56

The following films are playing in Santa Barbara FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, THROUGH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12. Descriptions followed by initials — DJP (D.J. Palladino), JW (Josef Woodard) — have been taken from our critics’ reviews, which can be read in full at The symbol ✯ indicates the film is recommended. In this film, however, we plainly see how terrible she is, particularly as former child star trying to pass as a grown-up. Cinematically, she still reads as a kid. Gomez shows almost no charisma here, and there is neither any interesting innocence nor any nymphet guilty pleasures involved watching her be bad — both poles of enjoyment ought to be in any B-movie, which this clearly is, despite the presence of stars. Getaway is one long car chase. And, boy, is it tiresome. It feels like this movie was somehow influenced by Nicolas Refn’s gripping film, Drive, but it doesn’t have the nerve to go for some richer allegorical meanings. Instead, its mediocre twists keep hinting that some kind of life lesson is involved in the story of a former race driver (Ethan Hawke) whose wife is snatched. In order to save her, he must follow the complicated directions of a disembodied voice, played by the bearded close-up shot lips of Jon Voight. The long car-smashing, cop-bashing run around the Bulgarian city of Sofia begins to run out of suspenseful gas after about half an hour, leaving viewers with an hour of yearning for an interesting pit stop. That, and an ejector seat to get rid of Gomez. (DJP) Fairview/ Metro 4

PREMIERES The Family (90 mins.; R: violence, language, brief sexuality)

A mafia boss (Robert De Niro) and his family are relocated to France by the witness protection program but blow their cover when they try to do things their way. Camino Real/ Paseo Nuevo (starts Thu., Sep. 12)

Insidious: Chapter 2 (105 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of terror and violence, thematic elements)

A family tries to uncover a mysterious and long-kept secret about their ties to the spirit world. Camino Real (opens Thu., Sep. 12)

Riddick (119 mins.; R: strong violence, language, some sexual content/nudity)

Left for dead on a barren planet, Riddick (Vin Diesel) finds himself face-to-face with a race of alien predators. Arlington/ Camino Real (starts Thu., Sep. 12)

Short Term 12 (96 mins.; R: language, brief sexuality)

A young supervisor of a foster-care facility fights for her at-risk teens with the help of her coworker and boyfriend. Plaza de Oro

SCREENINGS Field of Dreams (107 mins.; PG: language, sexual references)

An Iowa farmer (Kevin Costner) hears voices that command him to build a baseball diamond in his corn fields. Sat., Sept. 7, 7pm, Plaza Playhouse Theater, 4916 Carpinteria Ave.

✯ Much Ado About Nothing (109 mins.; PG-13: some sexuality, brief drug use)

Sat., Sept. 7 and Sun., Sept. 8, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

sequences of fantasy violence and action, some suggestive content)

A young orphan learns that she descends from a long line of warriors who protect the planet from demons. The performers are a little too beautiful and the story is more than twice-told, yet somehow Zwart manages to create a Tween Gothic that gets beneath your skin. (DJP) Camino Real

One Direction: This Is Us (92 mins.; PG: mild language)

This documentary offers a behind-thescenes look at the lives of Niall, Zayn, Liam, Louis, and Harry that follows the boys from their humble beginnings to playing London’s  Arena. Directed by Morgan Spurlock. Camino Real (3- D and 2-D)/ Fiesta 5 (3-D and 2-D)

Planes (92 mins.; PG: some mild action, rude humor)

A small crop-dusting plane with a big fear of heights dreams of competing in a prestigious aerial race. Fairview (2-D)/ Fiesta 5 (2-D)

✯ The Spectacular Now

NOW SHOWING Blue Jasmine (98 mins.; PG-13: mature thematic material, language, sexual content)

A woman in crisis (Cate Blanchett) heads to San Francisco, where she reconnects with her estranged sister. Woody Allen writes and directs. It’s hard to know what to make of the uneven, sometimes thinseeming Blue Jasmine, but Blanchett’s performance makes it worth seeing. (JW) Paseo Nuevo/ Riviera

✯ Elysium (109 mins.; R: strong bloody violence, language throughout) In the future, the wealthy live on a manmade space station, while the rest of the population resides on barren Earth. Neill Blomkamp’s second film takes place in the same thematic universe as his surprising debut, District . It’s science fiction in a terrifyingly “realistic” vein. It’s both weird and formulaic, not to mention a happy ending to a summer of mediocre blockbusters. (DJP) Fairview/

(95 mins.; R: alcohol use, language, some sexuality, all involving teens)

A party-boy high schooler has a change of heart — and lifestyle — when he meets an atypical “nice girl.” It’s not necessarily a profound film, or even a very unusual take on the high school romance coming-ofage melodrama, but it is exquisitely executed — and that counts for a lot. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

✯ This Is the End (107 mins.; R: teen drug and alcohol use, language, including some brief sexual references) Seth Rogen, as cowriter, star, and project maker, takes the Apatow formula to a logical endgame, in a sometimes wickedly funny and sometimes creepy tale of selfabsorbed Hollywood bad boys faced with the arrival of the Biblical End Times. (JW) Camino Real/ Metro 4

✯ The Way Way Back (103 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements, language, some sexual content, brief drug material)

A man and the daughter he found on his doorstep face new challenges when her birth mother resurfaces. Camino Real/

Fourteen-year-old Duncan befriends the manager of a local water park during a particularly troublesome summer break. This refreshingly smart and subtle number is blissfully off to the left of the summerfilm formula, with its blend of comingof-age angles, family dysfunction, and emotional/existential riptides. (JW)

brief strong language)

Ashton Kutcher portrays Steve Jobs in this historical drama about a high school dropout who turns into one of our generations most revered and successful entrepreneurs. Kutcher deserves considerable praise for the tough job of not only inhabiting this role, but also enlivening a film with such a crappy script. (DJP) Fiesta 5 Lee Daniels’ The Butler (132 mins.; PG-13: some violence and disturbing images, language, sexual material, thematic elements, smoking)

Forest Whitaker stars as an AfricanAmerican butler working in the White House at numerous significant points throughout the 20th century. Ambitious in its scope, and an important film its subject matter, The Butler is a rousing success on many fronts, even if its truth cred is wanting. (JW) Fairview/

Audited. Verified. Proven.

Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) delivers a new take on the classic Shakespeare comedy. Not only do the actors do justice to the text (a prose-y play dotted with witty exchanges); they actually commit it to brilliant black-and-white cinema. The whole experience is high-and-low delicious. (DJP)

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (130 mins.; PG-13: intense

A career pot dealer (Ed Helms) fabricates a fake family to help him move a large marijuana shipment from Mexico to the U.S. Camino Real/ Metro 4

✯ The World’s End (109 mins.; R: pervasive language, including sexual references) Five friends reunite to relive their most debaucherous pub crawl from 20 years prior. In the process, they become the lone hope for the survival of the human race. Director Edgar Wright’s finale to his Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy sates our appetite for the satirical over-the-topness, while also providing a refreshing, saltier, and zanier end to this summer’s crop of decent rite-of-passage films.

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): “No regrets? Really?” asks author Richard Power. “I have regrets. They are sacred to me. They inform my character. They bear witness to my evolution. Glimpses of lost love and treasure are held inside of them; like small beautiful creatures suspended in amber.” I think you can see where this horoscope is going, Aries. I’m going to suggest you do what Powers advises: “Do not avoid your regrets. Embrace them. Listen to their stories. Hold them to your heart when you want to remember the price you paid to become who you truly are.” (Find more by Richard Power here: tinyurl .com/RichardPower.)

(June 21 - July 22): The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land. It’s the foundation of the most politically powerful nation on the planet. And yet when it originally went into effect in 1789, it was only 4,543 words long — about three times the length of this horoscope column. The Bill of Rights, enacted in 1791, added a mere 462 words. By contrast, India’s Constitution is 117,000 words, more than 20 times longer. If you create a new master plan for yourself in the coming months, Cancerian — as I hope you will — a compact version like America’s will be exactly right. You need diamond-like lucidity, not sprawling guesswork.



(Apr. 20 - May 20): says that the newly coined word “orgasnom” is what you call the ecstatic feelings you have as you eat especially delectable food. It’s derived, of course, from the word “orgasm.” According to my reading of the astrological omens, you are in an excellent position to have a number of orgasmic-like breakthroughs in the coming week. Orgasnoms are certainly among them, but also orgasaurals, orgasights, and orgasversations — in other words, deep thrills resulting from blissful sounds, rapturous visions, and exciting conversations. I won’t be surprised if you also experience several other kinds of beautiful delirium.

(July 23 - Aug. 22): There are two scientific terms for tickling. “Knismesis” refers to a soft, feathery touch that may be mildly pleasurable. It can be used to display adoring tenderness. The heavier, deeper kind of tickling is called “gargalesis.” If playfully applied to sensitive parts of the anatomy, it can provoke fun and laughter. Given the current planetary alignments, Leo, I conclude that both of these will be rich metaphors for you in the coming days. I suggest that you be extra alert for opportunities to symbolically tickle and be tickled. (P.S. Here’s a useful allegory: If you do the knismesis thing beneath the snout of a great white shark, you can hypnotize it.)



(May 21 - June 20): If you were about to run in a longdistance race, you wouldn’t eat a dozen doughnuts. Right? If you were planning to leave your native land and spend a year living in Ethiopia, you wouldn’t immerse yourself in learning how to speak Chinese in the month before you departed. Right? In that spirit, I hope you’ll be smart about the preparations you make in the coming weeks. This will be a time to prime yourself for the adventures in self-expression that will bloom in late September and the month of October. What is it you want to create at that time? What would you like to show the world about yourself?

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): In his “Song of the Open Road,” Walt Whitman wrote some lyrics that I hope will provide you with just the right spark. Even if you’re not embarking on a literal journey along a big wide highway, my guess is that you are at least going to do the metaphorical equivalent. “Henceforth I ask not good-fortune — I myself am good-fortune,” said Uncle Walt. “Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing. Strong and content, I travel the open road.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Mystical poet St. John of the Cross (1542-1591) was one of Spain’s greatest writers. But not all

of his work came easily. When he was 35, a rival religious group imprisoned him for his mildly heretical ideas. He spent the next nine months in a ten-foot by six-foot jail cell, where he was starved, beaten, and tortured. It was there that he composed his most renowned poem, “Spiritual Canticle.” Does that provide you with any inspiration, Libra? I’ll make a wild guess and speculate that maybe you’re in a tough situation yourself right now. It’s not even one percent as tough as St. John’s, though. If he could squeeze some brilliance out of his predicament, you can, too.

a bit. I rarely exhort you to don an animal costume and dance with the fairy folk in the woods, and I think the last time I suggested that you fall in love with an alien, angel, or deity was . . . never. So what’s my problem? Don’t you feel taboo urges and illicit impulses now and then? Isn’t it true that like everyone else, you periodically need to slip away from your habitual grooves and tamper with the conventional wisdom? Of course you do. Which is why I hereby repeal my excessive caution. Get out there, Capricorn, and be as uninhibited as you dare.


(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Germany’s Ostwall Museum displayed a conceptual installation by the artist Martin Kippenberger. Valued at $1.1 million, it was called “When It Starts Dripping from the Ceiling.” Part of it was composed of a rubber tub that was painted to appear as if it had once held dirty rainwater. One night while the museum was closed, a new janitor came in to tidy up the premises. While performing her tasks, she scrubbed the rubber tub until it was “clean,” thereby damaging the art. Let this be a cautionary tale, Aquarius. It’s important for you to appreciate and learn from the messy stuff in your life — even admire its artistry — and not just assume it all needs to be scoured and disinfected.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): The American naturalist John Burroughs (1837-1921) traveled widely and wrote 23 books. “I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think,” he testified,“all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” Let’s make that longing for abundance serve as your rallying cry during the next two weeks, Scorpio. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you have a cosmic mandate to push to the limits — and sometimes beyond — as you satisfy your quest to be, see, and do everything you love to be, see, and do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Punk icon Henry Rollins did an interview with Marilyn Manson, rock and roll’s master of the grotesque. It’s on Youtube. The comments section beneath the video are rife with spite and bile directed toward Manson, driving one fan to defend her hero. “I love Marilyn Manson so much that I could puke rainbows,” she testified. I think you will need to tap into that kind of love in the coming days, Sagittarius: fierce, intense, and devotional, and yet also playful, funny, and exhilarating. You don’t necessarily have to puke rainbows, however. Maybe you could merely spit them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): If you want to know a secret, I talk less crazy to you Capricorns than I do to the other signs. I tone down my wild-eyed, goddess-drunk shape-shifting

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): In her novel White Oleander, Janet Fitch suggests that beauty is something to be used, “like a hammer or a key.” That’s your assignment, Pisces. Find practical ways to make your beauty work for you. For example, invoke it to help you win friends and influence people. Put it into action to drum up new opportunities and hunt down provocative invitations. And don’t tell me you possess insufficient beauty to accomplish these things.

Wine of the Week Chehalem Winery Ridgecrest Vineyards Pinot Noir 2010 When it comes to reflecting the delicate, subdued suppleness of French Burgundies but with a distinctively New World shine, it’s hard to compete with cold northwest corner of Oregon, where wineries such as Chehalem have been perfecting the terroir of the Willamette Valley for more than 30 years. This pinot, from Harry Peterson‑Nedry’s pioneering vineyard of Ribbon Ridge near the town of Newberg, is a ponderous lesson in how to pack a rainbow of flavor into a red wine that’s utterly lean and racy. These wines aren’t exactly perfect for aficionados fo dense fruit bombs, but the ideal chance to see where you fit into that specturm occurs on September 11 at the Ebell in Los Angeles, where 65 Oregon vintners, including Chehalem, will be introducing themselves to Southern California as part of the Pinot in the City event.

The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or

encumbrances, to satisfy the obligation secured by said Deed of Trust with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. All right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN BELOW MENTIONED DEED OF TRUST Executed by: THOMAS W SIMS AND CATHERINE SIMS Recorded on 10/29/2009 as Instrument No. 2009‑0065579 of Official Records, in the office of the County Recorder of SANTA BARBARA County, California Date of Sale: 09/12/2013 at 01:00PM Place of Sale: At the main entrance to the County Courthouse, 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 3558 MODOC ROAD 39, SANTA BARBARA, CA 93105‑4543 APN# 049‑ 430‑39‑00 The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Sale is $567,625.07.

If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to the return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks

involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (949) 236‑5599 or visit this Internet Web site, using the file number assigned to this case 2200‑002936‑F00. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
