The Independent welcomes back Lyz Hoffman to the newsroom. After completing two internships at the paper and studying English and professional editing at UCSB, Hoffman headed to Northwestern U’s Medill School of Journalism last year. “I loved the variety of stuff I got to do [as an intern],” she said. “I loved the freedom.” Now, she’s thrilled to be back in town working at The Indy. An avid reader, vegetarian, dog lover, and Breaking Bad enthusiast from the Sacramento area, Hoffman immediately dove into the challenging world of county and court reporting in the couple weeks she’s been back. “I’m happy to take it on,” she said. While covering global health issues and taking courses in Chicago, Hoffman learned an invaluable lesson: The West Coast — and especially Santa Barbara — is hard to beat.

‘Tough Love’ for Homeless Shelter



DAY OF REPRIMANDING: Casa Esperanza’s director Mike Foley got an earful on Tuesday from the Board of Supervisors, though they did approve changes to their legal agreement with the homeless shelter, which has hit tough financial times.

Supes Vent as Casa Esperanza Cuts Services



irectors of Santa Barbara’s financially troubled Casa Esperanza homeless shelter didn’t just get a harsh dose of “tough love” from the county supervisors on Tuesday, they got seriously spanked. Even so, the supervisors unanimously approved changes to the shelter’s 60-year covenant with the County of Santa Barbara, which will allow the cashstrapped Casa to cut costly services without putting at risk the shelter’s $500,000 interest-free, no-payback loan from the county. But before that vote, the supervisors expressed frustration at getting such late notification of Casa Esperanza’s dire circumstances and took exception to shelter supporters who said they felt “abandoned” by elected officials, like Supervisor Salud Carbajal, who stepped off the organization’s board. (Carbajal resigned to avoid a conflict of interest for serving on a board that receives county funding, explaining that could be “a little awkward.”) Likewise, the supervisors bristled at the suggestion of some Casa supporters — like June Sochel of the Gildea Foundation — that the city and county governments needed to redouble their efforts on behalf of the homeless and for the shelter. A surprised Supervisor Steve Lavagnino was expecting “a mea culpa, if you will” from Casa advocates, but explained, “Instead, what I heard was we need to step up.” Carbajal added, “I hate to break it to you, but county government is never going to do everything, and it’s never going to do enough.” 10


For Casa director Mike Foley, Tuesday’s verbal shellacking was salt in an already raw wound. Over the past several months, he and his board have been rewriting the shelter’s core mission, and the cuts have been exceptionally painful. Not only has Casa Esperanza eliminated its drop-in day center — effective this Tuesday — but it cut its satellite food program in Isla Vista. More fundamentally, the Casa is now pursuing a new policy of requiring its residents to stay sober while there, which hasn’t always been the case. Many wonder where the non-sober will go this winter when the Casa begins operating at its maximum capacity of 200 people a night, but the changed policy may open new funding opportunities. The question is whether the shelter — begun in 1999 by a coalition of business, government, and religious leaders — can stay afloat until that happens. In the past five years, the shelter has borrowed nearly $2.2 million to maintain the current level of operations, and this year’s budget is nearly $2 million less than it was two years ago. The shelter is in the midst of an emergency $300,000 fundraising drive, which Foley said has generated $192,000 with two weeks to go. All was not strictly dollars and cents on Tuesday. Linda Miller, who’s stayed at Casa in the past, predicted a spike in aggressive panhandling, illegal camping, and dumpster diving due to the cuts.“It’s appalling anyone has to do without food,” she said. Another homeless woman complained that the waiting list for subsidized housing was six years long, lamenting,“Six years is a long time to be on the streets.” And many

september 19, 2013

others urged the supervisors to remember most of the homeless were women and children, not the people panhandling on street corners. Foley is hoping to sell the Casa property to an undisclosed third-party nonprofit, which in turn will lease property back to the shelter. The proceeds would help pay off much of the shelter’s accrued debt. County auditor Bob Geis expressed skepticism at this plan, and the supervisors worried that such a sale would leave their $500,000 loan unsecured and uncollateralized. But the point was moot, because the loan was made with the clear expectation that the money would never be paid back and that no interest would ever be charged. In exchange, the shelter was supposed to provide a range of shelter services — including the drop-in day center — through 2059.“We’ve already lost our $500,000,” said Geis. “That’s the story. It is what it is.” In the end, the supervisors voted to change the Casa’s covenant language to allow the elimination of the drop-in center over the next 46 years. This leaves intact the interest-free and forgivable provisions of the $500,000, which, in turn, will facilitate the eventual sale of the property. Supervisors Lavagnino and Peter Adam were skeptical Casa Esperanza could be saved, saying “good luck” to Foley and his supporters. Supervisor Doreen Farr lamented the loss of the program, terming the damage inflicted to the safety net “huge.”And while Supervisor Carbajal was clearly frustrated, he understood there was no choice. “Who are we fooling?” he asked. “We can’t provide this service for the community.”

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

Alleged heroin dealer Edgar Cordova, 28, and his girlfriend Alicia Marie Robles, 22, were arrested last week after a two-month investigation. Santa Barbara police, after seeing that Cordova had gone to the liquor store, searched their home on the 100 block of Nogal Drive and found Robles climbing out the bathroom window. Inside were 18 grams of heroin, a scale, and packing materials. Both were booked with $30,000 bails; Cordova, whom police believe to be part of a Santa Barbara gang, was also booked on a no-bail warrant for violating his “post-release community supervision” guidelines, related to an earlier burglary conviction. The Santa Barbara City Council mulled over a possible settlement deal involving a woman suing the police department after having her arm broken by two officers in 2011 after she was stopped for allegedly driving under the influence. The woman, Britteny Cotledge, was stopped after hitting a parked car after leaving a party on the Westside. Police claim she resisted arrest, and when two officers grabbed her by each of her arms — twisting them up behind her back — one of her arms broke. Cotledge sued, claiming excessive force was deployed. The council discussed the case behind closed doors and issued no report on what course of action it will take. The Sheriff’s Office has developed a new lead in a previously stone-cold murder case that has stumped investigators for over 30 years. Known as the Original Night Stalker case (not to be confused with 1980s serial killer Richard Ramirez), the unidentified serial killer is believed to be responsible for several murders and numerous rapes across the state in the 1970s and 1980s, including two double homicides in Goleta. Recent studies have led investigators to believe that the Original Night Stalker may have stopped in Goleta to work as a painter during the construction of Long’s Drugs (now CVS Pharmacy at 5875 Calle Real) in 1979. The Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone who has any information about employees who worked at the site in Goleta in 1979 to call 681-4150. Following a yearlong investigation, Sheriff’s Office drug detectives arrested an alleged methamphetamine dealer in Summerland last week. Upon recently returning from Mexico, Alejandro Jaimes Lopez, 30, was located in Lookout Park, where detectives found approximately two pounds of methamphetamine in his car. Detectives later found an additional ounce of the drug — hidden in an Irish Spring soap box — in Lopez’s car parked at a Montecito home, where he had been working as a landscaper for an elderly couple. Unbeknown to them, Lopez had been allegedly burying drugs in their yard. He was booked on $250,000 bail. Lanie Tyrone Richardson, the man charged in the “car surfing” tragedy that killed one woman and injured another last June, pleaded no contest on 9/12 to felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, misdemeanor driving on a suspended license for a prior DUI conviction, and inflicting great bodily injury to the surviving victim, Lindsay Keebler. His original charge of second-degree murder — for the


CITY Marcelo Lopez, who’s been Santa Barbara City Hall’s second-in-command for many years, announced that he will be retiring at the end of the year, closing out an 18-year stint with the city and a 38-year career as a government employee. Known for his dapper style, frank opinions, and quick wit, Lopez emerged in recent years as the city’s de facto point person with news media. When City Hall opted to conduct its own elections several years ago — rather than pay county elections officers to do so — Lopez supervised the transition. Likewise, he’s played a key role with the South Coast Task Force on Youth Gangs. With Lopez’s resignation, that brings to three the number of high-ranking administrative retirements announced at City Hall in the past two months. Public Works Director Christine Andersen and City Attorney Steve Wiley announced their departures earlier. “We’re drop-

To celebrate the naming of the Santa Barbara Airport’s terminal in honor of John T. Rickard (above), elected officials, community members, and his family gathered to remember the late mayor’s lasting contributions to the city on Monday. A Santa Barbara native, influential two-term mayor, and respected judge, Rickard is best remembered for his ability to annex the city’s airport property and his commitment to stop oil drilling from developing off the city’s coastline. Those who lobbied for the terminal to hold Rickard’s name — including The Santa Barbara Independent’s Editor in Chief Marianne Partridge — spoke at the dedication ceremony and emphasized his “foresight,” “persistence,” and “stewardship” as a longtime public servant. The Santa Barbara City Council received an update this week on the long-simmering lawsuit filed by the owners of the Green Well medical marijuana dispensary, formerly located on Milpas Street. The owners claim they were shut down without due compensation after having gone through the city’s review process and having been granted all the necessary city permits. cont’d page 12  The dispensary was closed

Help for I.V. Homeless

Isla Vista’s homeless community can be hopeful, after the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously this Tuesday to build the Pescadero Lofts Affordable Housing Project at 761 Camino Pescadero. In addition to offering a place for some of the mostly student community’s homeless and low-income residents to live, explained John Polanskey of the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Barbara, the 33-unit complex will offer an array of on-site services, from mental-health support, health screenings, and drug testing to workshops on computer skills, résumé writing, and financial literacy. Polanskey added that he hopes to get neighboring fraternities and sororities to volunteer their help. In March, the county agreed to sell the property — designated for affordable housing by the now-defunct Redevelopment Agency, which purchased it in 2010 — to the Housing Authority, which will keep it affordable for 55 years. So that the project could qualify for construction tax credits, the Housing Authority partnered with Union Bank and the nonprofit Surf Development Company. Construction is expected to cost just shy of $9.8 million. Two loans from the county — one for $2.9 million and the other for $1.6 million — will supplement a $1.5 million loan from Union Bank and $3.7 million in tax credits to pay for construction, which Polanskey said will start in November and take about a year. Prospective tenants — homeless individuals are the first priority, then low-income — will be notified next summer when the application process opens, and they can turn to Legal Aid and the libraries to access the online applications. “We do have a large and chronic homeless population there,” said Supervisor Doreen Farr, whose district includes Isla Vista. “It will be really nice to have a location where we can assist them.” The board also approved two affordable one-bedroom units for the St. George Del Playa Apartments on the corner of Del Playa Drive and El Embarcadero Road in Isla Vista. Occupancy for those — Lyz Hoffman units is projected for January.


Wind Gains Speed Feasibility of Turbines in the Santa Barbara Channel to Be Studied


A settlement to end the squabble over the late heiress Huguette Clark’s will looks highly unlikely, and jury selection for the trial was set to begin this week, barring the slim chance that the 60 attorneys, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, and 19 of Clark’s relatives come to a last-minute compromise. The debate revolves around the validity of Clark’s second will, which left her 23-acre, $100 million estate on East Cabrillo Boulevard in Santa Barbara to the Bellosguardo Art Foundation, a charity formed to turn the sprawling hilltop estate into a public art museum. Other beneficiaries include Clark’s multimillionaire private nurse, a doctor, a hospital, a goddaughter, her attorney, her accountant, and several other employees. That will specifically states that none of her money should go to her relatives, who are descended from the first marriage of her father, the copper-baronturned-U.S.-politician William A. Clark. The trial is expected to last several weeks.

hen the cash-strapped Spanish company Acciona Energy announced it was scrapping its plans to develop a wind farm near Lompoc, it looked as if any hopes for wind energy in Santa Barbara County were dead in the water. Now, it sounds as though one day — albeit far off into the future — wind turbines could be floating on the water. John Reed, a UCSB-trained engineer who returned to the South Coast five years ago to work for Clipper Windpower — the nowdefunct Carpinteria-based manufacturer of wind turbines — has a vision that includes 103 6-megawatt turbines harvesting wind in the Santa Barbara Channel and providing for onethird of State Senate District ’s energy needs. But Reed can also do math. The project, he calculates, will cost $3.7 billion. He shared that figure on an August afternoon with Gary Kravetz, a business consultant who provides free business mentoring through the organization SCORE. The two were meeting at a State Street coffee shop with a couple of other potential business partners. Upon hearing that number, Kravetz did not spit out his coffee or make any other detectable reaction. Instead, he calmly asked Reed to break down his ambitions into discrete steps. This Socratic approach led to the conclusion that Reed needs to fundraise for expenses like airplane tickets, so he can meet the people he needs in order to raise funds for a demonstration project. However far Reed gets, there’s no denying that the Santa Barbara Channel is hands down one of the most ideal spots on the California coast for harvesting wind energy. Around the Channel Islands, wind continually blows at or well above the seven meters per second that makes a site harvest-worthy. There is no template for offshore wind development on the West Coast of the United States, let alone in the channel, but unrelated to Reed, a group of UCSB graduate students, along with Santa Barbara-based Infinity Wind Power and the Community Environmental Council, will

spend the year studying the feasibility of farming wind in the channel. According to Luke Feinberg, a master’s student in the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, he and his peers working on the CalWind project have three goals: to conduct a stakeholder analysis, to outline the permitting pathway for obtaining permission to build wind turbines offshore, and to complete a GIS spatial analysis. The last refers to the fact that the nearshore area is shared by marine protected areas, shipping lanes, fishermen, and Vandenberg Air Force Base, for starters. Nobody has yet mapped exactly how the area is divvied up and where space for turbines could be carved out. While “you can get stronger and more consistent wind offshore,” according to Megan Birney, who worked at the CEC when interviewed but has since left, “there are several barriers.” Along with the questions of where to run transmission lines, migratory bird patterns, fishing interests, and the military presence, the continental shelf off the Central Coast drops off so sharply and the water depth increases so quickly that it would be impractical to anchor turbines into the ocean floor. Any potential turbines would need to float. A 2009 study published in the journal Renewable Energy concluded that between 52.8 and 64.9 gigawatts of power — several times over California’s current total usage — could be generated from floating turbines off the California coast. A more practical estimate for the area, said Birney, is about 10 percent of the county’s usage according to a 2006 report. Whether Santa Barbarans will ever see turbines pinwheeling on the horizon will depend on whether they want to.

COUNTY County supervisors were informed this week that the state plans to cut $2.3 million in funding to the Public Health Department next year and $7.3 million in the ensuing years in anticipation of additional revenues promised by the federal Affordable Care Act. With these reductions, the department’s director, Dr. Takashi Wada, expects shortfalls of $3 million until the act goes into effect. When it does, savings of about $300 million are expected statewide, so the early cuts are the state’s attempt at “realignment.” In Santa Barbara County, about 95,000 residents not currently insured will be mandated to find enrollment in either a private health-care plan, one of the two insurance exchanges the act authorizes, or the expanded Medi-Cal programs. County governments throughout the state have argued that the “realignment” should take place one year after the Affordable Care Act goes into effect rather than before. Wada is working on a plan to determine which programs will be trimmed or cut, and will present that plan in January. In a sign of the times, supervisors on 9/17 voted to amend the contract between the District

With Santa Barbara County CEO Chandra Wallar’s (above) contract expiring in October — the supervisors didn’t renew it after Wallar secretly tried and failed to win the position of Orange County CEO earlier this year — the board’s search for her replacement is in full swing. Supervisor Salud Carbajal said the board has a second set of interviews planned for Friday, 9/20. Also, County Counsel Dennis Marshall said he is retiring at the end of the year after working for the county since 2008. He didn’t have any details on the search for his successor. The Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 — Supervisor Janet Wolf voted no — on 9/17 to amend the contract with Aramark Correctional Services, implementing an immediate 2.34 percent increase in the cost of inmate and staff meals at the County Jail and allowing the sheriff to approve such increases until the contract expires in 2019. The 2013-14 fiscal year had budgeted for a 3 percent increase; the 2.34 percent saves more than $8,000. Supervisor Salud Carbajal didn’t like that staff meals cost

Eighteen people were arrested early Friday morning after they were caught allegedly smuggling more than 3,000 pounds of marijuana from a panga boat at Arroyo Quemada near Tajiguas Creek Beach. Members of the California National Guard first observed three vehicles dropping several people at the beach parking lot where they waited under a tree and in nearby brush just after midnight. About an hour later, according to a court filing, the sergeant observed a panga boat with two passengers approach the shoreline. The waiting suspects then ran down the beach, unloaded plastic wrapped bundles from the boat, and carried the bundles back to a waiting pickup truck that had returned to the lot. The suspects ran in different directions and hid in nearby bushes once a slew of officials responded to the scene, including those from the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and California Highway Patrol. Fourteen of the scattered suspects were arrested on the spot. HSI agents later stopped a truck in Camarillo believed to be associated with the incident. The vehicle’s occupants fled the truck on foot and escaped. Marijuana bales and other evidence were found in the truck that linked it to the smugglers. Later that morning, four additional suspects hiding near Arroyo Quemada beach were also arrested. ICE identified the two panga passengers to be Alejandro Cortez-Garcia and Carlos Cortez-De La Cruz. Manton Pine, Rafael Garcia, Juan Carlos Godinez, Josh Jimenez, and Jesus Lopez were also found hiding nearby and are believed to have assisted in unloading the boat. According to ICE spokesperson Lori K. Haley, only seven individuals have been formally charged with aiding and abetting the possession with intent to distribute marijuana. In the past year, there have been 10 panga events in Santa Barbara County — two of which involved human smuggling — totaling 15 apprehensions and 9,735 pounds of seized marijuana, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security. — Kelsey Brugger





Vigil for Man Killed by Cop Two weeks after 46-year-old Brian Tacadena was shot and killed by a Santa Barbara police officer, friends, family, and dozens of community members gathered Sunday evening at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens (pictured above) to remember Tacadena and speak out against police brutality. “We need understanding,” said Frank Tacadena to the crowd, still visibly saddened by his cousin’s sudden death. “My cousin got murdered walking down the street. We have no answers. The police have given us no details …. It’s been two weeks and we don’t know anything.” Sgt. Riley Harwood said no further details could be released due to the ongoing investigation, which will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office once complete. The process could take several months. The vigil and rally was organized by community activist Martin Leyva, who called for the establishment of a police oversight committee of civilians with subpoena powers to generate dialogue and increase transparency in police policy. The pro-youth Latino coalition PODER (People Organizing for the Defense and Equal Rights of S.B. Youth) also called for increased accountability for Santa Barbara’s police department, referring to the Tacadena shooting as an “unfortunate part of a growing trend.” Said one representative, “As a community, we declare our dissatisfaction with the transparency in the internal audit process involved with the Police Department.” After the speeches, Tacadena’s aunt Kathryn said her nephew had a “troubled life” but was “good-hearted” and had a “beautiful smile.” He had spent the last several years in the San Jose area but had returned to Santa Barbara on the day of his death to visit his 17-year-old daughter and other family members. He was shot by a police officer on the evening of September 1 while walking with a knife at the corner of Victoria and De la Vina streets. While holding tea candles, the gathering of about 50 people — including members of the Ventura-based chapter of the Brown Berets — peacefully marched down Figueroa Street holding signs criticizing police brutality, stopped in front of the Police Department to chant, and then retuned to the courthouse lawn for a moment of silence. — Kelsey Brugger

three times as much as inmates’, saying, “When we all eat the same, it reminds us whether it’s good or not.” A yearly report made to the county’s Board of Supervisors on 9/17 on the countywide syringe exchange program showed a decrease from 30 percent to 12 percent between 2000-2012 in the number of HIV/AIDS infections with injection drug use as a risk factor. The program — run by the Pacific Pride Foundation at its Santa Maria office and paid for with private money — swaps used syringes for clean ones and provides clients with STD testing and referrals for drug abuse and mental-health counseling. Last year, the program provided 73,053 clean needles for 74,740 contaminated ones.

STATE A bill that would ban all lead ammunition for hunting statewide by 2019 — making California the first state to do so — has passed the State Legislature and is sitting on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk. The bill, officially known as AB 711 and cosponsored by Assemblymember Das Williams of Santa Barbara, would phase in the use of non-lead bullets for all hunting by July 1, 2019. Since 2008, lead ammunition has been illegal in the condor ranges in Central and Southern California, but its presence still seems to be harming the endangered species. In 1991, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service banned lead ammunition in the hunting of waterfowl nationwide, making way for more than a dozen

lead-free ammunition types available across 35 calibers and 51 rifle-cartridge designations. Jerry Payne, the owner of Far West Gun & Supply on State Street, said that because most ammunition available now has a lead base, this bill’s passage would be “pretty dramatic,” explaining that “nontoxic ammunition, for lack of a better name, is relatively new.” Both conservationists and scientists have called for the ban to protect the health of both wildlife and humans. Two bills passed by the State Legislature — which still have to be signed into law by the governor — are making the Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District (MTD) breathe a sigh of relief over regaining federal funding. One of the bills, AB 1222, would exempt transit agencies’ transit workers from the state’s pension reform act through the end of next year or until the state settles its fight for the law in court. The other bill, SB 13, would make some technical changes to the pension law, including a permanent exemption for transit workers who have pensions under the federal Taft-Hartley Act. Bus riders got caught in the middle when the Teamsters, which represents MTD drivers, objected to the new state pension reform act — stating that it interfered with its collective bargaining rights — and the federal Department of Labor delayed transit funds until the dispute was resolved. MTD has been concerned about the how the cuts would curtail impact services and has been accepting public feedback on emergency plans.

WORDS TO SPARE: The leader of a nonprofit called Palabra, J.P. Herrada has plenty to say about youth, gangs, law enforcement, and the justice system.



Is there a program you modeled yourself after? When we started, no. The model we

You invite suspicion because you are sometimes at the scene of a crime as fast as law enforcement. We all got calls when

J.P. Herrada Talks Gang Intervention



n public forums, J.P. Herrada can come off as hotheaded and impatient. In more informal settings, he’s friendly and loquacious. A gifted gabber who can charm money from the pockets of philanthropists, Herrada is also a two-striker who got into trouble for selling meth and moving weapons, so he has the street experience to connect with the young people he wants to help. Today, Herrada is the head of a nonprofit called Palabra that was founded by a retired IBM executive named Fernand Sarrat after the 2007 murder of 15-year-old Angel Linares. Armed with personal wealth and beholden to nobody, Sarrat didn’t hesitate to rock the boat in Santa Barbara’s nonprofit community. When Herrada first volunteered for what at the time was called the Collaborative Community Foundation, Sarrat found a counterpart who also wasn’t afraid to speak his mind. Herrada is not trusted by law enforcement, but in the world of gang intervention, fairytale definitions of heroes and villains are of little use. As one of his funders said, “The nature of the model that J.P. is leading, is the guys on the street have to be connected enough to have credibility with gang members.” While Herrada says he is curbing violence by mediating gang conflicts and mentoring youth, police aren’t sure he’s not the enemy. Since his Eastside organizer was arrested earlier this summer on drug-related charges, he’s been laying low. But he stopped by The Santa Barbara Independent offices for a wide-ranging discussion that addressed the work of Palabra, the City of Santa Barbara’s proposed gang injunction, his own decision to join a gang, and why, as he put it, “It’s hard to be an angel when you’re living in hell.” What does Palabra mean? Palabra is a creed

that we all live by in my community. It translates to “word.” If I went to you for a favor, I had your word. Our community has gotten away from that.

were going after was the way the gangs mediate conflict. I can honestly tell you there’s good things about it and bad things about it. There are lines you don’t cross. Most of these kids seem to understand how the gang works, so we wanted to organize in a way where people felt like they had a role to fill. We teach kids, you already have all the skills you need to survive in the world; you just need to tweak them to where you’re doing something positive for your community that’s going to have a much longer impact. Once you empower them in that way, then you can see the whole neighborhood start to shift.

Why can’t you say to kids, law enforcement isn’t perfect, but let’s put that to the side and focus on ourselves? The adult

should know better; the adult should handle himself differently; the adult is in a position to incarcerate you, to set you up, to really make your life hell. And you want me to tell a kid, yeah it’s his fault, but try to be different. It doesn’t work, because you are teaching these kids that right is right and if you commit a crime, you have to do your time. That’s why I’m saying it’s very important for us to admit there are certain officers out there who shouldn’t be holding a badge. We would be asking the kids to be bigger men than the adults. It just doesn’t work that way. There are certain kids that are so full of anger, they say, “Fuck that. Why should I act in a certain manner when I know I’m not even in the wrong?”

from the outside reasonably asks why we’d have to meet in secret. That’s been one of our biggest problems. It’s been difficult to show transparency to the whole community. Some of your kids have been involved in crimes. Most notably, one of your employees, Ray Macias, was arraigned last week for collecting drug taxes and is accused of leading a criminal organization. That makes some people think you must be a criminal. We are dealing with kids that

are high risk. We’re not going to be able to save everybody. Some of these kids are getting services from CADA [Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse], some of these kids are getting services from the CAC [Community Action Commission], some of these kids are getting services from Teen Corps and other

‘My responsibility and my loyalty are to

my community. Whenever I’m dealing with any of these kids and their families, I’m not going to screw them.’ — J.P. Herrada The other problem we found was that when we tried to network with each other, to clean up our own house, we’re not afforded the same rights as everybody else. Every time we got together we had to do it in secret because if we made it public, [police would show up to the meetings and] you’re looking at gang enhancements, you’re looking at conspiracy charges, you’re looking at young individuals being targeted. The way law enforcement sees it, we can’t possibly be getting together because we want to change anything. We must be getting together to commit criminal activity. Anyone looking in

organizations. But when they commit a criminal act, all of a sudden the fact that those kids are going through those programs two or three times a year, doesn’t matter. All [the authorities] see is they are part of Palabra. Whenever those kids do something positive, everybody seems to take credit. With Raymond, they didn’t find anything in his house. The only reason Raymond is facing these charges is because of conversations he had with certain individuals in the community. As far as his case goes, that’s all I’m going to say about that until it’s done.

incidents were happening in the community. We weren’t getting a call at 10 at night and then waiting until eight in the morning to call people up. We were out there in the middle of the night mediating. There were two or three incidents where one of the guys from our program was a victim, and when he gave a statement to law enforcement, they were upset that he wasn’t able to give them more information. Then all of a sudden he goes from being a victim to being a suspect. My responsibility and my loyalty are to my community. Whenever I’m dealing with any of these kids or their families, I’m not going to screw them. With some of the kids that have been lost — either killed or that are incarcerated — I still see the families. I’ve never told anybody, “Don’t rat, don’t talk to the cops.” That’s not my place. At the end of the day, the major thing we tell them is that you’re a big boy now. You’re a man. So you need to make a decision that is going to affect your family in the best way possible, and you need to ride with consequences. That’s why we have that misunderstanding with law enforcement. They feel I should be telling kids to cooperate with them. Some kids choose to get jumped out of gangs. Some just gradually move away. What does Palabra advocate? I got schooled

by a lot of older individuals that helped me and guided me through that whole process. There were a couple times when I talked to the older homies and said, “I want out. This isn’t for me. Everything is changing.” The homies would take me aside and say, there’s other options than getting jumped out. You don’t want to be separated from your own community. Nowadays, there is nobody in the neighborhood that you can call an older homie. Most of them are locked up. There’s nobody there to guide the kids on different options than getting jumped out or becoming a rat. When you stop gangbanging because you have kids and you’re working all the time, there’s a couple of weeks when people are like, “Yo homie, you’re not kicking it, you’re not around.” But when you’re constantly working, you’re already down the road. They don’t come after you. They don’t do all this shit that law enforcement claims. You have a lot of these individuals who have moved on from that lifestyle. They have different priorities now.

ANGELS AND DEMONS: J.P. Herrada (in glasses) is surrounded by law enforcement at a

May 14 City Council hearing on a proposed gang injunction. His Eastside coordinator Raymond Macias, arrested on June 6, stands against the wall behind him.

but you’re not here making decisions anymore. You move on; there’s nothing wrong with that. With the gang injunction however, you’re taking a lot of these guys who have already moved on and you’re putting them right back in the neighborhood and putting them back at the front of the line, and you’re willing to prosecute them for shit that they haven’t even done yet. Now you’re making the neighborhoods aware of “Oh yeah, we forgot about so-and-so. What’s up now?” You just reminded individuals that I’m out here. You’re putting me in a spot where I wasn’t gangbanging anymore, but thank you law enforcement. You brought me right back into the lifestyle. There’s a debate about whether kids choose to join gangs or whether they are obliged. For me personally, I did make

a choice to get jumped into a gang because I liked the violence. I came from a violent home. If I was getting my ass kicked at home, I wanted to be in a place where I could pass that asswhooping to somebody else. Also I had a younger brother that was taken away from us by Child Welfare. He was taken away when he was 2 or 3 years old. I was living in the projects in Goleta at the time. Somebody made a complaint that [our parents] were abusing us. Child Protective Services came one day and knocked on the door. I was 7 or 8 years old. I looked through the peephole and didn’t answer, so the cops left. When they came back, they kicked in the door. I hid my brothers and sisters in the closet and threw clothes on them. I could hear the cops saying, “Come here, we have candy.” One of my little sisters ran out of the closet, and that’s how they found us. They came after my little brother for whom I was caring at the time, and they took him. When they took him, the cop gave me his card and said, “When your parents come home, tell them to call us.” I remember sitting home and thinking, I’m going to get my ass beat because I let them take my brother. I remember just sitting there in the living room looking at the door off its hinges. … That incident brought a lot of hate toward the cops. After that, I would always see that cop. He would always say,“Where’s your brother at?

Oh, you haven’t seen him?” He would always talk shit like that. For me, it was like fuck these fools. So whenever cops came around the neighborhood, I would scratch their cars, slash their tires. For me, it was like it’s me against you now. It was only so long before I saw the older homies and it was like, I’m down, and I got kicked in. The gang was the natural choice for me to make. Looking back as an adult, I can say that was a very stupid mistake. But it was a choice that I made. So now I have to continue with the bad choice I made and make the best of it. I can see both sides, but a lot of people saying these things are adults. They’re not putting themselves in the mind of a 14-year-old. They’re thinking, it’s obvious. Well, it’s obvious to you now. It wasn’t then. That’s why I think we forget that at the end of the day, they’re kids who are going to make mistakes, especially angry kids. It’s frustrating because on one hand, they’re willing to punish them as adults, gang members, the worst pieces of shit, and then with the same breath, they’ll say they are wannabes, they’re idiots, they’re insignificant. It’s like, dude, you can’t have one or the other. If people looked at these kids the way they look at their own kids — that’s the way that I do things — I look at a lot of these kids as if they were my own personal kids. Before we end this interview, what do you want people to know about Palabra? I

want a lot of those people that believe what we are doing is illegal to contact me and volunteer with us. As long as they’re not cops, they are more than welcome to come through our programs and interact with a lot of the kids. I think most people genuinely care about the community, and if they really knew what the kids go through, they would be the best advocates to change the system. We’re never going to be able to incarcerate our way out of this. Growing up, I thought I was going crazy. I thought I was going fucking crazy. I would say, dude, people cannot not be aware of what’s going on in this community. That’s why I thought everybody was racist until I met some white people, and they just didn’t know.

Clare Georgina Nisbet

// – //

Clare was born in Glasgow Scotland, and was the second of three daughters born to Roger and Mary Nisbet. For the first ten years of her life Clare lived in Glasgow surrounded by her sisters Lynn and Julie, her grandparents who lived in the same neighborhood, and a posse of friends. Clare moved to Santa Barbara in , and attended Santa Barbara Middle School where she made friends who became soul mates, and developed a love of biking that stayed with her throughout her life. She became a true Santa Barbara girl – swimming in the ocean, playing varsity water polo, graduating from Santa Barbara High School, and completing a degree in English Literature from UC Santa Barbara. Her first job out of college was with the Santa Barbara Independent where she spent several happy years before setting out on an adventure to live in Argentina with her partner, now husband, Paul Rivas. Having almost no Spanish when she arrived, Clare studied at the University of Buenos Aires and became fluent in the language. This achievement greatly enriched the support and understanding that she could provide to her future patients. Clare and Paul explored South America with curiosity, energy, and enthusiasm. The culmination of their years in South

America was a remarkable overland journey from Buenos Aires to Nicaragua. She captured in her blogs, Chronicles of Falling off the Map, and The Big Schlep, the wonder, exhilaration, despair, gratitude, and sheer joy of exploration of her years in South America. On returning to Santa Barbara she threw herself with typical enthusiasm and determination into preparing for a nursing career. For the first time in her life, Clare had a vocation and one that needed all of her gifts – compassion, judgment, strength, intelligence, and an ability to help people find happiness and laughter even in their darkest hour. Clare completed her preparatory science courses at Santa Barbara City College while working for Planned Parenthood, and then was admitted to the nursing program at Columbia University. On graduating from Columbia and qualifying as an RN, she returned to Santa Barbara, with an intense desire to be a hospital nurse. Following a few months of employment at the County Jail and Casa Esparanza, she was thrilled to be appointed to a nursing position in Adult Oncology at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Clare found a home in the caring community of Ward C and both patients and staff became like a second family. She was so grateful for the opportunity to support, and receive support from, this remarkable group of people. Clare is remembered by friends and family for her wonderful, spontaneous sense of humor, her unconditional generosity, her refusal to accept from herself anything but her best, and her ability to understand and share the suffering of others. She loved the ocean and there will be a celebration of her life at Goleta Beach on Saturday, September st, starting at PM, and with an appreciation of Clare at PM. All are welcome to join us in celebrating this short but extraordinary life.

9/28/53 - 9/7/13 A Life Well Lived

I miss you so much. I am heartbroken that you are gone. Anyone who knew you, loved you. You had qualities all of us wanted, but few of us possessed. You lived your life with joy and laughter and love for your family and your friends. You loved your work. Being a mediator suited you perfectly. You felt it was a calling, not a career. You wanted to help people work through what was often one of the most difficult times of their lives. People who came to you in times of trouble felt like you really heard them, understood them, and wanted to help them. At the end of the day, you made most people’s lives better. Not a lot of us can say that. There were sides to you that most people didn’t know. You loved to surf. You loved music and to play the guitar (you even took weekly lessons). You liked Pinot Noir wine, and would often wander to a neighbor’s house with a bottle to share. You wore dress shirts on Sunday, just because it was Sunday. You were always reading a spiritual book. You would snack on cheese and dark chocolate. You watched political T.V. every night. You loved to play basketball. There were things you never got to do, but always wanted to do. You wanted to surf in Fiji. You wanted to take a Missions trip. You wanted to travel to Israel and visit the Holy Land. You wanted to see your children get married and have families of their own. Kevin, you had a life cut short, but a life well lived. Not many people can say that. From all of us who were blessed enough to have known you, thank you for sharing yourself. We are enriched beyond measure. Love you always, Jocelyn

All Growl but No Bark


really smart once told me that the massive freeway-widening project now envisioned by Caltrans wouldn’t be necessary if area employers instead figured out how to stagger the times employees showed up for work. And you wouldn’t have to tinker with the schedules of all that many people, he added, to avoid rush-hour gridlock. Given that he served on the board of the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) — Caltrans’s alter ego in the world of local government — the comment carried weight. I was interrupted by that thought last Wednesday as I was trying to keep score in a game of full-body contact ping-pong pitting Scott Eades of Caltrans against Santa Barbara’s mayor, Helene Schneider. At issue were key elements that Schneider and City Hall are insisting must be added to the $500 million freeway-widening plans now on the drawing boards. Or else. Eades, naturally, sees it otherwise, and as state bureaucrats go, you don’t get more impressive. In person, Eades radiates a calm just-the-factsma’am impartiality. And armed with a laptop, the man is devastatingly persuasive. But even on a bad day, Schneider knows the freeway project down to the last asterisk of the last appendix of the plan’s draft environmental impact report. And last Wednesday was anything but a bad day for the mayor, who appeared to have inhaled three cans of whup-ass just prior to the confab, which was held before the Chamber of Commerce’s Government Relations Committee. In this match-up, I’m still not sure who was the

irresistible force and who was the immovable object; I just know Schneider kicked butt. All parties involved insist the freeway widening is absolutely essential. Without it, Caltrans says the morning peak-hour gridlock will spread to six long hours. With it, Caltrans says 917 driver hours a day will be saved. But the project will take 15 years to build and cost about $550 million. Where that money will come from is far from clear. But if and when the project is built, you can be sure there will be precious little left to spend on anything else. Very understandably, Caltrans — and SBCAG — desperately want to avoid anything that will drive up costs. Time is money; delays are deadly. Equally understandably, Schneider and City Hall want the project done right and are threatening to hold up the project to ensure that it is. It turns out the level of service at the Cabrillo interchange will get worse, not better, under Caltrans’s current plans. To fix this problem, the Union Pacific Bridge by the bird refuge needs to be rebuilt to accommodate a few more lanes of traffic. Otherwise traffic will back up along Cabrillo Boulevard about 800 feet west of Los Patos. Caltrans and SBCAG don’t deny any of this. But to include this bridge work in the project now, they insist, will hold things up. And besides, there’s not enough money to pay for the freeway widening as is. City Hall, they say, should pursue the matter separately. Around City Hall, that argument has no wings at all. Back in 1997, promises were made that the Union Pacific Bridge would be widened as part of the previous phase of freeway

improvements. It never happened. As a result, Schneider is playing a highstakes game of chicken with Caltrans. Include the bridge, or City Hall will deny the permits Caltrans needed to build the project. All of this, it should be noted, is vastly complicated by political intrigue. Schneider’s political pit bull and campaign manager — Jeremy Lindaman — just happens to represent Common Sense 101, a group of very wealthy and politically connected Montecitans who are absolutely and irrevocably dedicated to retaining the left-hand exit ramps at the Cabrillo-Hot Springs interchange for a host of reasons. (Because of them, Malcolm Dougherty, the Pope of Caltrans, issued the decree in a visit to Santa Barbara this May that he would never — under any condition — allow the left-lane ramps to be retained, citing inherent safety issues.) When Schneider eventually runs for county supervisor or Congress, the support of such well-heeled Montecitans will prove vital. Schneider already went to bat for these folks in a huge way, making their case at a meeting with the governor’s office this summer. That meeting allegedly got the left-lane ramps put “back on the table.” (Since that meeting, Caltrans has disclosed that only 13 accidents over the past 10 years can be attributed to the left-hand ramps for southbound drivers at the Cabrillo interchange; of those, six occurred when freeway construction was underway. Despite the infrequency of such accidents, Caltrans insists left-hand ramps need to be phased out.) Conversely, it’s worth noting that

Experience, Accomplishments, Judgment Let’s Work Together for a Better Santa Barbara

City Council candidate Gregg Hart happens

to work for SBCAG by day and in that capacity is moving heaven and earth to get the freeway widening underway without any further delays. If he’s elected, it’s impossible to imagine Hart going toe-to-toe with Caltrans or his employers at SBCAG, as Schneider is now doing. As a legal matter, Santa Barbara City Attorney Steve Wiley has said Hart has no conflict of interest. The smell test, however, remains another matter, and politically, the issue has clearly put Hart and Schneider — both moderate liberal Democrats — at loggerheads. Machiavellian scheming aside, it’s worth noting that all seven members of the city’s planning commission agree with Schneider and have just dropped a densely worded two-page letter bomb on Caltrans, demanding that the railroad bridge be included in the freeway-widening project and that the draft environmental analysis be recirculated to reflect that change. Likewise backing Schneider’s play — to the hilt — is city transportation planning czar Rob Dayton, community development boss Paul Casey, and City Administrator Jim Armstrong. In other words, they’re all in. It’s actually vastly more complicated. But in an oversimplified nutshell, I’d say if Caltrans doesn’t figure out a way to blink pretty soon, then maybe area employers will need to take a much closer look at recalibrating the work schedules of their employees. A really smart guy once told me that might do the trick. — Nick Welsh

Opinions letters


Visions of Syria


Open Letter to Representative Lois Capps: e are writing to request that you consider voting against the use of missiles against Syria. It is time for the United States government to stop the cycle of nation-bombing whenever a country does something that is considered illegal or immoral. The use of chemical weapons is despicable, and its use should be prohibited. However, the investigation and penalty should come from the United Nations — it is their responsibility to act in such matters. Though the United States has the largest military in the world, it is not responsible for acting as a global police force. Let’s focus on the many problems facing our country, support and enable the UN in its role, and get out of the business of nation-bombing. Surely our founding fathers did not conceive our country with this role in mind. Please have the courage to stand up to the Obama administration and support the wishes of your constituency and encourage other politicians to use their moral guide and political power to vote — Daniel Seidenberg, President, against the launching of missiles into Syria. and Mary K. Johnston, Vice President, Santa Barbara Chapter, Veterans for Peace



he president of Russia has written an op-ed article for the New York Times! Will Obama send a reply to Pravda? Putin had several valid points and stated correctly the rule of international law: Any attack on another country may only be made with the sanction of the Security Council or in self-defense (which the U.S. concedes is not at issue). Putin omitted any explanation of how the Syrians came to make their proposal to surrender their chemical weapons arsenal and sign the gas treaty. Their offer was, of course, a direct response to Obama’s threat to strike Syria. The UN and Congress may not

believe that Obama will hit Syria regardless of their objections. But Assad and Putin believed him. Now we have to decide whether the Syrian offer is merely a delaying tactic. The former constitutional law professor from Chicago may make some constitutional law history. — Gary Sadler, Santa Rosa

the city decided to make all of Canon Perdido a 90-minute zone? I have lived and worked in Santa Barbara my entire life, and it only gets harder and more dangerous for locals to find a spot to park. Wednesday and Thursday street cleaning is enough to drive someone mad. Wednesday there is literally one block to park on at Ortega. Thursday we get a whole two blocks. Three blocks for residents and commuters to share? Santa Barbara needs to start treating its locals with more respect and stop worrying about tourism influx and moneymaking. We used to be a very close-knit town, not a miniature Los Angeles that insists on making people that have supported it for years have to walk 15-plus minutes to try to survive in an already expensive city. — Kyle Calderon, S.B.

Bowels of Compassion


n the writings of the New Testament, “compassion” means: “To be moved as to one’s bowels, hence to be moved with compassion, have compassion (for the bowels were thought to be the seat of love and pity).” In the ideal world of religion, compassion is lauded as a trait that mankind should strive for. In Congress, those who would clamor for a more Christian nation with Christian values remain adversarial to the very concept of taking care of those who live in poverty every day. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is currently being hung up in Congress like a piñata. Led by Tea Party Rep. Eric Cantor, Republicans and some Democrats are lining up to see how many whacks they can take at a proven assistance method that is this

nation’s most important anti-hunger program. In 2012, food stamps helped almost 47 million low-income Americans per month afford a nutritionally adequate diet. Plus, the Department of Agriculture estimates that $5 in food assistance produces $9.20 in local and state economic activity. These federal dollars go directly to farmers, small businesses, and grocers, and their employees. Nearly 72 percent of SNAP participants are in families with children; more than one-quarter of participants are in households with seniors or people with disabilities. And SNAP is colorblind, with 49 percent of its participants being white to 26 percent African American and 20 percent Hispanic. The proposed 2014 federal budget of over one trillion dollars has a razor-thin slice of one percent for agriculture and food while the military is to receive 57 percent of the pie. When countries with more abbreviated resources can feed their populations, the Congress of the richest country in the world in terms of resources should not feign economic hardship. — Jeffrey Moualim, Santa Ynez

letters cont’d from p. 25 rupt our country and wreck our health-care system, and a pro-Muslim president who won’t face the threat of radical Islam and uses the IRS, the EPA, and other branches of the government to silence anyone that disagrees with him and to advance his radical agenda? On the home front, Americans are suffering, our economy is in tatters, and the rule of law and our moral code is being ignored. And worst of all, race is being used to divide and conquer. Simply stated, America is in decline and our leaders, with the aid of a dishonest, corrupt media, are responsible. Where are the honest, pro-American, caring leaders today? I only see a handful. I pray they show up for the sake of our children and grandchildren. — Diana Thorn, Carpinteria

First Vote for Hill


he online Voice by Randy Haslam [“Do We Really Want Hillary or Another Bush Presidency in ?”] is little more than a hit-and-run piece against Hillary Rodham Clinton’s candidacy. She will be the best-prepared candidate for president we have ever had and certainly one of the smartest, yet electing her as the first female president will not be easy, even with such credentials, because of tactics like this, which are simply desperate attempts to undermine her chances. Electing a female to this office will be a bigger hurdle than the election of a president of color in 2008. Gender discrimination not only widely exists in all of business and society today (as does racial discrimination), but it is not yet as universally eschewed and opposed as is racial discrimination. Hillary winning the presidency in 2016, which she will most certainly do if she chooses to run, will do much to assist in the important battle for gender equality and advance the cause of women everywhere. — Rob Egenolf, S.B.

Philippine MILF vs. MNLF


he beaches of Santa Barbara are being pounded by air strikes, mortars, and artillery — S.B. beach in Zamboanga, Philippines, that is. This is the result of decades of frustration and recent unwise decisions by the mayor of Zamboanga, Philippines. When the government failed to act upon a signed peace agreement, protesters asked for a permit to demonstrate peacefully. Unlike the two cities that permitted the protests and had peaceful demonstrations, Zamboanga refused permission and got an armed insurrection. Nur Misuari has worked for an independent homeland for Mindanao’s Muslim population for more than 40 years. In 1996 the government signed an agreement with his Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF). Then, the Philippine government began negotiating with another group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). There is evidence that the government donated money to form the MILF. The government has spent seven years studying the 1996 agreement, and a new president has decided to negotiate with the MILF, a group it helped create. Both sides have made mistakes. The government has not kept its agreement; the MNLF needs to unite Moro groups under one agenda — a challenge if, indeed, the government is behind the MILF. The MNLF’s greatest mistake though is their taking of civilian hostages as human shields, a war crime.

on the beat

Hell or High Water


It was April 1960. I’d just moved here and found an apartment at the beach end of Linden Avenue in Carpinteria. I soon moved on to Goleta with my wife and year-old son, little realizing that I’d been right in the path of a (gasp!) potential tsunami. The apartment building is still there and still in the path of possible high water, according to a study just published by the U.S. Geological Survey. Researchers say a 9.1-level earthquake in Alaska would send punishing waves down the California coast. For one thing, the simulation showed that homes in certain areas of Carpinteria lower than 14 feet above sea level would likely be inundated, according to Julie Jeakle, Carpinteria emergency services coordinator. There are lots of variables however, she said. On the good side, scientists say a tsunami like this is only likely to occur every several hundred years. But it could be tomorrow, couldn’t it? Who can predict earthquakes? Meanwhile, Carpinteria is going through the process of becoming what’s known as a “tsunami city,” following guidelines that include evacuation routes and warning systems, Jeakle said. UCSB and the City of Santa Barbara are already tsunami cities, she said. All this is not news to tri-counties emergency preparedness folks who huddled recently to evaluate the new study, which pretty much reit-

erated a 2009 study. But it was a stern reminder and a warning to the rest of us. In case of an emergency, we’d get warnings from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Jeakle assured me. If I were still living at the foot of Linden Avenue, the water level at what Carpinteria calls “The World’s Safest Beach” would start rising fairly rapidly and I’d risk wet feet, or worse. Under the study’s scenario, the first waves from Alaska would hit Crescent City, in the far north of California, in as little as four hours after the quake, according to the L.A. Times. Waves would hit San Diego about two hours later. We’re in the soggy middle, sort of. There’d be major flooding in Long Beach and parts of Orange County, and an estimated 750,000 people would have to evacuate those coastal areas. Boats in marinas along the California coast would be damaged, sewage would foul the beaches, and an estimated 8,000 people would become homeless. Cost of the disaster could hit $8 billion. It’s not hard to see Santa Barbara’s crosstown freeway being gummed up. (Maybe we should have let state highway officials put it up on steel stilts the way they wanted back in the 1950s.) Remember the Santa Barbara blue line controversy back in 2007? Bruce Caron proposed painting an artistic 1,000-foot line downtown depicting how high the water would rise if Greenland suffered a meltdown due to climate change.

EARLY WARNER: Bruce Caron, in 2007, proposed a blue line in downtown Santa Barbara showing the expected high-water mark due to global warming.

The City Council okay’d the plan, but developers freaked. What about real estate values for sub–blue line properties? Then there was the $12,000 cost. Amid all this furor, Caron withdrew his application. The City Council, seeing the writing on the wall, killed the plan. And now, tsunami or not, I don’t predict the council emerging from City Hall with dripping paint brushes. Take a look at the study maps yourself at

PLAYING WITH FIRE: The Flaming Lips bring their famously over-the-top stage show to the Santa Barbara Bowl just in time for Halloween weekend.


s we close the book on summer, art lovers can rejoice in all that fall has to offer for fans of all disciplines. First up, our seasonal arts listings, where The Independent’s arts editors roll out everything this fall has to offer, including a spectacular close to the Santa Barbara Bowl season, a strong start to the 2013-2014 UCSB Arts & Lectures calendar, and a refreshingly out-there theater lineup that includes at least one show in a funeral home. We’ll also get a peek inside next week’s Santa Barbara Flamenco Arts Festival, which is fast becoming the destination for world-class and up-and-coming flamenco artists from around the globe. The 2013 installment brings bold new moves from artistic director Vibiana Pizano, including the U.S. debut of Spaniard Jesús Carmona, who comes to the Granada Theatre on September 28. Prepare yourselves: It’s going to be a wild ride. CAMERON WITTIG


Atoms for Peace





Whether he’s writing music, directing films, dabbling in experimental art, or floating above a sea of fans in a gigantic plastic ball, The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne knows how to make a scene. At 52 years young, the playfully eccentric frontman has practically become a household name. And the musical outfit he calls home? Well, they just might be the biggest psych-rock act of their time. Since forming in 1983, the Lips have pioneered the experimental space-rock movement with their signature hodgepodge of weirdly romantic lyrics, beautifully baroque arrangements, and delightfully over-the-top stage sets. (See the aforementioned gigantic plastic ball.) More importantly, though, the Flaming Lips have paved the way for myriad modern psych lovers, like critical darlings MGMT, Animal Collective, and our current faves, Tame Impala, who will play opening act for the Lips this fall. To call this an epic double feature might just be the biggest understatement of the season. Friday, November 1, at 6 p.m. Call 962-7411 or visit — AC

A Spanish Affair








A NATURAL PROGRESSION: Under the guidance of artistic director Vibiana Pizano, the Santa Barbara Flamenco Arts Festival has grown stronger than ever. This year, the fest brings Spanish star Jesús Carmona y Compañía (above) in Cuna Negra & Blanca.


ince its inception 13 years ago, Santa Barbara’s Flamenco Arts Festival has evolved into what can only be described today as a coveted destination for the world’s finest flamenco artists. In the beginning, founder and artistic director Vibiana Pizano made talent-scouting trips to Spain in hopes of attracting rising flamenco stars to her budding event in the relatively unknown city of Santa Barbara. Today, Pizano has them knocking at her door. With flamenco festivals now popular all over the world — Google “flamenco festivals” and pages unfold — how has Santa Barbara become a bull’s-eye on the map for master performers? A distressed Spanish economy may have inspired its dancers to look abroad for opportunity. And word has clearly spread to overseas flamenco circles that Santa Barbara, despite its size, offers big-city cultural arts sensibilities, with a large, enthusiastic audience that will likely pack a house when “Flamenco” is on the marquee. But the festival’s success is also a product of Pizano’s unwavering resolve to invite only true, awe-inspiring talent, often on the cusp of unattainability. This year, that comes in the form of 28-year-old Jesús Carmona and his company, making their U.S. premiere at the Granada Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 28. Carmona, who has become one of Spain’s hottest young flamenco stars, has never set foot on United States soil.“I imagine Santa Barbara is a beautiful place with the beach and all its Spanish roots,” Carmona said, speaking in Spanish.“It makes me so happy to hear that there are so many flamenco schools maintaining and growing that passion for flamenco. I’m thrilled that our U.S. premiere, and my first time in the United States, will be in Santa Barbara.” A former principal “lead” dancer of the Spanish National Ballet, Carmona is on everyone’s radar these days as the one to watch in the flamenco world. Last year, he premiered his company’s first production, Cuna Negra & Blanca (Black & White Crib) at Spain’s most prestigious flamenco festival, la Bienal, in the beautiful city of Sevilla, and shortly thereafter in Jerez de la Frontera. Both cities are in the southern region of Andalucía, considered the birthplace of the flamenco arts. Both performances received rare and thunderous standing ovations from what can safely be described as the world’s most erudite flamenco audiences.

“Standing ovations are very rare in Spain,” said Timo Nuñez, the highly acclaimed American dancer who began his flamenco training in Santa Barbara and has performed at many festivals here and in Spain. He was particularly impressed by the audience’s reaction at la Bienal. “The Spaniards see so much of this all the time, so they are very picky, very critical. They are not going to stand up unless they feel like these people really deserve it.” For Carmona, who grew up in Barcelona but is now based in Madrid, that grand affirmation was life-changing. “It was a very important moment in my professional life, to be received and approved by Sevilla and its public and critics at the world’s most important flamenco festival,” he said.“It was so incredibly thrilling and emotional for me. And it has opened many doors.” Including those to the Granada Theatre. Each year, Pizano and her fellow boardmembers, John Haro, and her father, Alberto Pizano, along with an advisory committee, consider dozens of portfolios, proposals, and solicitations from artists all over Spain. “The hardest part is having to turn down so many wonderful artists,” she said. What stood out about Carmona? “It was his personality, his energy on stage, that just really shines,” Vibiana Pizano said.“He’s so powerful and has such a special stage presence. He has just embarked on his own solo career and is receiving all these amazing reviews from critics all over. He is a rising star in the flamenco world, and in future years, the Festival can claim early recognition of an artist who was on the cusp of flamenco stardom.” “Over the years, we have slowly become recognized by Spain as a major flamenco festival, and it allows us to attract the best,” she said.“We have people on the lookout there for us now who know what Santa Barbara offers.” And it is also true that the festival has had a great impact on young flamenco dancers in Santa Barbara. Nuñez, who was recently heralded as America’s No.  Flamenco Dancer on the popular television show, So You Think You Can Dance, said the Flamenco Arts Festival’s first event 13 years ago is what inspired him to pursue a flamenco career. Flamenco studios along the central coast encourage their students to attend the festival, including the workshops that are always offered by the visiting artists. Linda Vega, the flamenco dancer and teacher who runs a large studio and youth

performing company, Flamenco Santa Barbara, said, “There are a lot of flamenco festivals out there, but this one is really a little gem. Vibiana and her organization have really strived to bring us the very best of the best, and it’s a privilege for us to have someone like Carmona come right into our community. We need this level of top-notch flamenco to inspire us, encourage us, to really see what we’re striving for.” When Carmona left the top ranks of the Spanish National Ballet last year to embark on a solo flamenco career, he took a great artistic risk, starting his own company and choreographing his own production (Cuna Negra & Blanca) described as a study of the extremes of human nature. According to Carmona, Cuna Negra & Blanca “is not a love story, nor is it a tragedy with an ultimate happy or unhappy resolution. It is, rather, a study of human nature and of the emotions that all humans struggle with, expressed through dance and music. It is a study of pessimism and optimism, a journey, a breaking through the void or emptiness of life (black) into the fullness or plentitude of life (white).” The challenge for Carmona is to capture this duality of emotions on stage and transfer them to the audience. Carmona believes these facets are part and parcel of human existence, from cradle (cuna) to grave, and hopefully, most people learn to put them in their proper perspective, including the Santa Barbara audience. “I truly hope the public enjoys this and is able to feel all of the array of emotions, and that they leave content having seen a high-quality show done with much love and dedication,” Carmona said.“We’re going to give it all on the Granada stage, and we just hope it’s well-received.”

ENHANCING MOBILITY WITH BIONIC TECHNOLOGY a presentation by Amanda Boxtel Honored Humanitarian, International Speaker, Test Pilot for Ekso Bionics e-LEGS, Adaptive Sports Advocate and Visionary


ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY FAIR 2:00 – 5:00pm An exhibition of technology to assist people with disabilities • Free admission


AT THE McDERMOTT-CROCKETT & ASSOCIATES MORTUARY Wallace Shawn may be familiar to moviegoers as an actor, but the audience for his work as a playwright has thus far been relatively small, often deliberately so. The 2000 New York City production of The Designated Mourner was performed in an empty office space rather than a theater, and the seating each night was capped at just over 20 attendees. That may be just as well, because the message that Shawn sends in this play is about as far from the comforting reassurance of big commercial theater as you can get. In this three-person production, a man, his wife, and her father, all of them

liberal intellectual artist-types, struggle to survive in an unnamed country that’s being torn apart by an insurrection of the poor and unemployed and the vicious totalitarian dictatorship that seeks to suppress it. What makes this nasty social scenario even more threatening is the fact that the play’s timeframe is the near future, and its setting might as well be these United States.

SMOOTH AS: Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble brings its contemporary classical repertoire to UCSB in October.


Arts & Lectures mainstay Yo-Yo Ma won’t arrive until March 13, when he and pianist Kathryn Stott will give a recital at the Granada Theatre, but he’s sending his best advance crew for a concert on October 24 in the form of the Silk Road Ensemble. Ma founded this organization nearly 15 years ago, and in that decade-and-a-half, it has blossomed into contemporary classical music’s most fertile seedbed for new groups, new music, and new ideas. Those who have enjoyed fantastic recent concerts in Santa Barbara by Brooklyn Rider, The Knights, or Kayhan Kalhor are indebted to the Silk Road Project, where those musicians and that music were nurtured for years. Seeing the current version of the Silk Road Ensemble in Campbell Hall is sure to be another preview of many next big things. Thursday, October 24, 8 p.m. Call 893-3535 or visit — CD

WALL SPACE GALLERY NO NAME GAME: Heidi Lender’s “Pink” (pictured) is just one of the works on display as part of Anonymous, the all-Lender show currently on display at wall space gallery.

You haven’t really funked with the Funk Zone until you’ve stopped in at wall space, the Santa Babara outpost of photography curator extraordinaire Crista Dix. Dix specializes in exhibiting fine-art photography that pushes the medium across all kinds of boundaries — often into assemblage, but also toward abstraction, narrative, and critical/aesthetic documentary. Shows in this compact second-floor space rotate through on a monthly basis, and there’s usually some kind of great interactive event with the artist. Through September 29, Heidi Lender holds the space with delightfully witty and enigmatic surrealism of her latest show, which is called Anonymous, and features works in which the artist appears without showing her face. On Friday, September 13, Lender arrived

with an update called Travels with Adele, in which she documents her recent crosscountry car trip, and in which she reveals what in Anonymous remained concealed. In October, the team of Kim Kauffman and Victoria Mara Heilweil take over with non representational, an array of intriguing abstractions crafted from scanned objects. This heady show demands to be seen by anyone interested in the future of photography. In November, Lori Vrba’s anthology brings wall space home to the American South, where she lives and works, and in December, Harvard engineering researcher John Chervinsky proposes a few theorems in Studio Physics, his name for the mind-bending images he creates in still life. — CD

Called Give a Dog a Home, the “ReTail” shop’s purpose is to “connect potential adopters with shelter dogs, outside traditional shelter environments and business hours,” said S.B. County Animal Services volunteer Lee Heller. The open, sunny space is a friendly place to interact with pooches that are ready for adoption; volunteers are on hand to answer questions about each doggie.

e see water in abundance every day — in swimming pools, showers, pouring out of the kitchen faucet unchecked. But for many people around the world, access to water is anything but a certainty; in fact, as many as one out of every six people in the world do not have access to clean water. Many charities have been created to help the victims of this water crisis; one of them, Hands  Others (HO), was created by three Santa Barbara teens and has grown into a nationwide organization dedicated to “changing the world one person, one family, one village at a time.” HO began in 2008, after the then 15-year-old cofounder Spencer Dusebout took a life-changing trip to Belize. “[I] witnessed poverty at such a grand scale there, and it was really hard for us to come back to Santa Barbara and live in the Santa Barbara life and reconcile what we’d seen in Belize,” Dusebout said. “We had this really strong feeling that we had to do something to give back, to help others, because we have so much here, and that’s what really put everything in motion.” After working to fundraise for other charities, Dusebout and his cofounders, Scott Schurmer and Jack Davies, realized that there were very few youthdriven organizations in existence at the time and decided to form their own, focusing on raising awareness among their peers. “It was really important to us to get as many of our friends involved as possible and really create a thing with young people,” Dusebout said. “We wanted to be a very inclusive organization, and allow others to come alongside us and help us …That’s kind of the theme of HO.” Five years after its founding, the nonprofit organization has grown to include more than 500 participants and 15 corporate sponsors dedicated to solving the world’s water crisis, one water filter at a time. Their website states that “[HO’s] current goal is to help more than two million people in 500

villages around the world by 2015.” Already, they have brought aid to families in need in 10 countries around the world and are constantly expanding their organization to fund their projects and install water filters in impoverished villages, ensuring its inhabitants a safe, clean supply of water. HO’s latest accomplishment is a Vision Trip to Honduras, where 20 youth leaders from HO chapters in five different cities are working to assess the water situation in villages and install delicate water filters, providing sustainable access to clean water for the residents. In addition, the youth are provided with a unique and life-changing opportunity to connect with underprivileged families and experience the true extent of the water crisis in person. Dusebout described the Vision Quests as a chance to help members to “really see what HO’s about and what we’re doing,” as well as providing team building for the participating teens. Another Vision Trip has already set out for Haiti, and future Trips will send youth to Indonesia as well as back to Honduras and Haiti. HO is also increasing its efforts to get area high school students involved in their program; although hundreds of teenagers already help with fundraising, participating in Walk  Water events, and embarking on Vision Trips, HO is planning to reach out to a wider range of teens by starting HO clubs at the schools. This will allow HO youth to raise awareness among their peers and become more involved in HO events — Savannah Stelzer and fundraisers.

My Paris Sixteen-Year-Old Kid Finds Safety and Culture in S.B.


by Glenn Petersen

ifty years ago, when I first came to Santa Barbara, there was a popular folk tune, “Raspberries, Strawberries,” that proclaimed, “A young man goes to Paris, as every young man should.” Santa Barbara was, a half-century ago, my Paris. I came back to town recently to remember it, and was rewarded with what feels like almost total recall of those sweet old days. I first arrived in Santa Barbara scared, cold, tired, broke, and hungry, after driving down the Pacific Coast Highway as fast my Vespa would carry me from an Oakland home where I no longer felt safe. It was fall, it was cold along the coast, and I had no idea where I was heading. Signs for the Natural History Museum drew me in off the highway, and as I wound through the streets and began to experience the sun’s warmth, I found myself ready to stop and dismount for a while. I pounded the streets by day, looking for work, and spent the nights on Chapala Street, first at the Salvation Army and then sleeping in the backs of station wagons in the adjacent used car lots. Jobs for a 16-year-old high-school dropout were in short supply even then, and having no money, I was growing desperate. But the town’s ambience, its warmth, and the openness of the people I was meeting kept me hopeful. Finally, I walked into the old Copper Coffee Pot, on State Street near Figueroa, just as young Andy Birk, the owner’s son, was firing a busboy. He handed me an apron, and I went to work. An advance on my pay and a dollar-anight room in the Virginia Hotel got me stabilized ’til I found a spot in a scruffy old rooming house that could have served as a movie set, the whimsically named Hotel de France on the corner of Anapamu and Chapala streets. On the night of John Kennedy’s

assassination I wandered across the street to watch the news on the television in Alex Heiland’s workingman’s tavern, the Canteen. I behaved maturely enough to convince folks there I was a whole lot older than I was, and the Canteen soon became my hangout. I felt at home there, and between the Copper Coffee Pot, Hotel de France, and that marginally seedy bar, I sunk roots into Santa Barbara. But my bigger, more enveloping memories, and the reason I’m writing this, have much more to do with the small-scale, and probably overlooked and underappreciated, cultural center Santa Barbara was in those days. Or so it was for me. The town has long been a tourist destination, of course, but the

down Anapamu and lived right across the street. Who could have asked for a lovelier garden? The Arlington Theatre worked magic in the evenings; I still recall my bafflement the first time I sat down in there. I’d entered after the lights had already dimmed, and I spent much of the movie trying to figure out whether I was indoors or outside. I always did feel like I was sitting beneath the stars in a village plaza, almost like the wanderings of time and space in a Woody Allen movie. But it was in the library that my cultural education took off. I like to think the Don Quixote murals are the source

FOND MEMORIES: Glenn Petersen may be an anthropology professor at New York’s Baruch College now, but S.B. will always have a place in his heart.

Ernest Hemingway said, ‘If you are lucky enough

to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you … .’ That is precisely how I feel about my time in Santa Barbara.

quarter I haunted there was largely bounded by Micheltorena and De la Guerra streets, Santa Barbara and Chapala streets. In those days this was largely a business and residential area, full of working people, and not so many of the visitors and brokers who fill the streets today. I spent time up on the hills and on the beach, at impromptu wine festivals in the canyons, and on raucous rowboat rides along the shore, but the cradle of my life there was in that stretch of Anapamu that is still adorned by the courthouse, the library, and the art museum. The courthouse grounds served as my yard, especially when I moved a few blocks

of the life-long joy I’ve found in tilting at windmills. My roommate Don McPherson and I borrowed an endless flow of art books and records. My earliest exposure to schools of art, classical music, and the theater of the absurd, especially a recording of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, came through the public library, and I trace my love of culture back to it. Obviously, my mind and soul provided fertile soil, and I would have eventually found my way to at least some of these anyway, I’m sure. But in that charmed time and place, they fashioned a deeply rooted garden that has never gone out of bloom, never

ceased to feed and nurture me. Santa Barbara was the gardener of my spirit. Ernest Hemingway said,“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” That is precisely how I feel about my time in Santa Barbara. I lived in a wonderful mix of a working community and vibrant culture. I found freedom and knowledge and learned to chart a course in life. I gained strength and competence there, and learned to see the world through discerning eyes. It was a feast, and it has stayed with me for the rest of my life. The final verse of “Raspberries, Strawberries” concludes,“An old man returns to Paris, as every old man must. He finds the winter winds blow cold. His dreams have turned to dust.” But the dreams that grew 50 years ago in Santa Barbara never failed me, and it pleased me endlessly to return and find that my Paris remains there by the sea, still thriving, still shining in the sun.

West Coast Roundup From Seattle Soccer Madness to S.B.’s Power Players


by John Zant

f UCSB’s Harder Stadium is “Soccer Heaven,” what do you call Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, where a crowd of 55,107 turned out last Friday for a Major League Soccer (MLS) match between the Seattle Sounders and Real Salt Lake? The San Francisco 49ers might call it “Football Hell,” because they were smacked down by the Seattle Seahawks in their NFL showdown at CenturyLink on Sunday. While the soccer crowd comprised most of the dedicated Sounders fans in the northwest city, there are thousands more passionate Seahawks supporters than the 68,338 who occupied every seat for the NFL game. One of the loudest cheers at the MLS match erupted when the video screen spotlighted Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, a guest spectator who was wearing a Sounders jersey. Still, the level of enthusiasm for pro soccer in Seattle reaches celestial heights. Before a big match, a European atmosphere blankets the city. A signature tradition is the “March to the Match.” Wearing the Sounders’ blue and green colors and waving flags, several thousand fans congregate near Pioneer Square, and, led by a 50-piece band, they swarm down Occidental Avenue five blocks to the stadium. During the full 90 minutes of the match, at least 70 percent of the spectators are standing. They must yell,“Up in front!” at those who dare attempt to seat themselves. The most demonstrative fans, known as Emerald City Supporters, fill the south end of the stadium. They chant, sing, pump their arms in unison, and wave flags and banners throughout the match. It was the seventh time the Sounders drew a crowd exceeding 50,000 for an MLS match, and their 2-0 victory over Real Salt Lake made them 7-0 on such occasions. After starting the season slowly, Seattle assumed the league’s best record (15-8-6) ahead of Salt Lake (14-9-4). Obafemi Martins, an international forward from Nigeria, and homegrown midfielder Lamar Neagle scored the goals at the south end in the first half. National team stars Clint Dempsey and Eddie Johnson took the field for the Sounders in the second half. They were not asked to play the full 90, because three days earlier, they had played in the U.S.’s 2-0 victory over Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, that clinched a berth in next year’s World Cup in Brazil. Meanwhile, back home in “Soccer Heaven”— college division — the UCSB men secured a much-needed 2-1 victory over the Pennsylvania Quakers in double overtime Sunday.

Book Ends Café Is Cranking Out Seriously Delicious Food by Shannon Kelley

t’s not often that I take a bite of something that literally makes me squeal. But, sinking my teeth into a sandwich of super-lemony, marinated, smashed chickpea salad, topped with slices of avocado and fresh market arugula, all loaded onto whole-grain bread that’d been slicked with tahini-harissa dressing, I do exactly that. (I’m not proud of the whole squealing-with-my-mouth-full thing, but I do feel it’s worth mentioning. Also worth mentioning: I didn’t even realize the damn thing was vegan until half of it was gone. That’s how good it was.) I procured the magical sandwich in question at Book Ends Café on the day of its two-month anniversary. The tuckedaway spot, located on the terrace upstairs from Antioch University, is beginning to generate some buzz, and with good reason. Husband-and-wife owners Dominic Shiach and Carmen Deforest have put together a sophisticated, tempting, and well-edited menu that has something for everyone. Yes, carnivores: Lest the above ode to that vegan delight leave you wary, fear not—the five-hour brisket banh mi (with jalapeño vinaigrette and smoked aioli) will have you squealing, too. There’s a similarly tricked-out chicken salad (studded with fresh peas and tossed in a yogurt chive-and-parsley dressing) and ham sandwiches (with Niman Ranch ham; in fact, all the meats are organic: “I’m not going to serve something I wouldn’t feed my kid,” says Deforest), as well as a pickled beet number with feta, kalamata olives, and smoked aioli. Freshbaked quiche, a rotating selection of creative, market-driven salads, and a handful of locally made specialties like McConnell’s ice cream and Silver Fork Bakery brownies round out the goods. And alongside Book Ends’ house-made granola, much to Shiach’s delight, Renaud’s croissants are now on offer for breakfast, which is rather a coup: “We had to prove we knew what we were doing before he’d agree,” says Shiach. He and Deforest do, clearly, know what they’re doing, although this is the first foray into the world of restaurateurism for either one. Just as their sandwiches are a little more interesting than you’d expect, so are their backgrounds: hers in fashion PR and his in film and television. (“You do a lot of business in restaurants in those fields,” he points out.) Eventually, though, Shiach grew disillusioned with the film industry,

He,“a Scot raised in London, from a whiskey family,” and she, a native of Palm Springs, cultivated their foodie-ism while living in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, but it was their time in the Scottish Highlands, where, they agree, there was hardly a restaurant to be found, when Deforest began to cook. (“A matter of necessity,” she says.) After having their son, the couple decided to move back to California, and they wrote a business plan for a restaurant; a friend of a friend put them in touch with the president of Antioch, whose mouth watered. And, although it was not originally the plan for Deforest to be womanning the kitchen, it takes only a bite to show she’s right at home in it. Besides, they say, this relatively modest breakfast-and-lunch operation is a great way for them to get their sea legs. Speaking of the sea, one can see it from the terrace, a spot most Barbarinos likely never knew was there — or available for the public to take advantage of. The huge outdoor eating area is warm and casual, the kind of place that generates regulars, of which Antioch staff makes up a sizeable constituency. Pointing to a woman across the large patio, Deforest says, “She’s a professor — she brings us eggs from her chickens; we trade her for lunch!” Turns out, another professor provides them with the kale used in the tabbouleh salad, and still another brings them herbs and carrots. (The rest is straight from the Farmers Market, which, on Saturdays, is right next door.) Students no doubt appreciate the Green Star coffee, also local. And another professor, walking out with a waxy bag and a big smile that can only mean one thing, is all about the baked goods.“We call him the cookie monster,” says Shiach.“He’s here every day.” Passing me on his way out, I swear I heard him squeal.

two great reasons to go. First, the crew is participating in the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America Local Dish Challenge, a fundraiser for the foundation’s educational programs, which focus on the country’s food system. Participating restaurants select one dish — Julienne’s is bouillabaisse — and diners are encouraged to post a pic of it along with the hashtags #JBFTasteamerica, #SantaBarbara, and #JulienneSB to Instagram. The city with the most Instagram uploads will earn a donation of $10,000 for a charity of the participating restaurants’ choosing (Julienne has selected the Foodbank Santa Barbara County). But since Julienne is S.B.’s only participant, we’d better get eating! Fortunately, their bouillabaisse is #freakingdelicious. Then, on Monday, September 30, the restaurant’s doing a fundraising dinner, also for the Foodbank. And when Julienne says fundraiser, they mean it: 100 percent of food sales will go to support the Foodbank. And the menu looks 100 percent delicious. Check it: first course: Steamed mussels with lamb sausage, lentils, fennel, and saffron broth; paired with Tatomer riesling. second course: Frisée, apples, spiced pecans, goat cheese, and cider vinaigrette; paired with a Saumur rosé from Château de Brézé. third course: Duck confit, butternut squash, beets, arugula, pine nuts, and duck sauce; paired with Tyler Pinot Noir. fourth course: Chocolate mousse with whipped cream, raspberries, and shortbread; paired with Domaine La Tour Vieille Banyuls. Cost is $60 per person and $90 with wine.

KCHEN Project’s Pop-Up Dinners Were Meant to Be


PERFECT PAIRING: Emily ometimes, incredible things Nordee and Kevin Harris’s happen at Joe’s. (Given the locale, talents come together as I should add that by “incredible,” I the KCHEN Project, where do not — in this instance — mean gourmet grub meets “extremely drunken”; nope, I’m writing of speakeasy style. a fated hookup … And by “fated hookup,” I do not mean “random sex.”) One night in March, two groups of friends collided in the bar and got to talking. Two of the friends — from separate posses — realized they were both ex-pats from the culinary world and that they shared a similar vision for what they hoped to do next. And when the buzz receded, they actually did it, and the KCHEN (pronounced, as one might guess,“kitchen”) Project was born. The two in question are Kevin Clark Harris and Emily Nordee, and between their backgrounds, they really do have every corner of the culinary industry covered. (Also, their initials combined to lend their business its name. See? Fate!) Harris is quite literally of heirloom stock — or, more accurately, seed: His family, and family business Hart’s Seeds, is one of the oldest farming families in the country. He attended culinary school in his native Connecticut and then worked the kitchens of the Chowder Pot and Bricco Trattoria before relocating to Big Sky country and working as the chef at the acclaimed Papoose Creek Lodge and Firehole Ranch in Montana. On a whim in 2008, he took a vacation to Santa Barbara, and the rest, as they say, is history. In town, he scored a gig as the head sous chef at Square One, then went on to be chef de cuisine at the Wine Cask, and executive chef at Spiritland Bistro. As for Nordee, after earning her degree in nutritional science with a culinary management concentration and wine marketing and viticulture from Cal Poly, she, a SoCal native, earned her stripes in New York. Situated primarily on the business side of things — marketing, PR, business development, and events — she worked on huge national and international campaigns including the James Beard Foundation’s awards, Bon Appétit magazine’s Wine & Spirits Focus, and Campari U.S.A.’s “Year of the Negroni.” But eventually, the siren song of the California lifestyle became irresistible, and she decided Santa Barbara would be a good place to land. With the seed money they banked as part of their Kickstarter campaign, as KCHEN, their vision is to serve delicious, local, and seasonal food and to create a sense of community around it. They do private catering and offer “Go-Bags” on order — idiot-proof, prepackaged kits that set you up with everything you need for a gourmet BBQ or picnic. But most significantly, KCHEN is the latest addition to S.B.’s pop-up dining scene, serving up impressive fare at one or two themed dinner parties a week, held at everchanging, hush-hush locations around town, that smoothly allow both Nordee and Harris to showcase their talents. Ultimately, they’re interested in a brick-and-mortar operation, but for now,“This is a great way to see what the people in Upcoming events include Breakfast for Dinner: It’s a Santa Barbara want, for Pajama Jammy Jam on September 25 and us to dip our toes in the 26 and Hoe Down Showdown: A Country water,” says Nordee.“We’re Style BBQ on October 2.

No Sleep but Big Smiles for Pioneering Vintner Kathy Joseph


by Matt Kettman

t’s nearing lunchtime in Lompoc’s Wine Ghetto, but the half-dozen people hustling around the bins, forklifts, and barrels inside the warehouse winery have already been awake for nearly 11 hours. They rose a little past the witching hour to begin another nighttime of picking grapes beneath floodlights in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills, and now, as the sweet stench of fermentation emanates from the recently plucked loads of pinot noir, they’re ensuring that juice will once again result in one of California’s most consistently stellar wines. This is full-tilt harvest at Fiddlehead Cellars, which Kathy Joseph founded a quarter-century ago to focus on pinot noir and sauvignon blanc, then very much “underdog varietals” in the West Coast wine game. Despite the lack of sleep and this being the 32nd vintage of her career — which started with a degree at UC Davis followed by a few years in Napa, Sonoma, and Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where she still buys some pinot — Joseph is beaming with childlike joy, a wide smile permanently posted across her face.“Every vintage is new for me,” she explains, hoses spraying and a mechanical punch-down tool humming behind her.“It’s just so exciting.” A sparkplug of a vintner whose early wines were actually purchased by the White House, Joseph was one of the first to champion the potential of pinot noir in the Sta. Rita Hills and sauvignon blanc in Happy Canyon, long before either Santa Barbara County region was its own appellation. “I wanted to be part of making that happen,” explained Joseph, who appreciated how the east-west orientation of the Santa Ynez Valley allows for cooler climate grapes like pinot to thrive near Lompoc while heat-loving grapes like sauv blanc excel to the east near Figueroa Mountain. In 1996, Joseph upped the ante by buying an old flower farm at the 7.28-mile marker on Santa Rosa Road — before, she said, vineyards there were a “happening thing”— planted 100 acres of pinot noir, and christened the property Fiddlestix Vineyard. Today, Joseph uses about 15 percent of the fruit and sells the rest to 14 other wineries, which tend to bottle Fiddlestix as one of their top-end offerings.“Fiddlestix is always perfect, even in

weird vintages,” said Joseph of her pride and joy.“There is not a bad block.” As a vineyard owner, it makes sense that Joseph is hands-on when it comes to the vines. (As she said, “There isn’t a pick day when I’m not sorting fruit.”) But she also has a reputation for being more meticulous than most other winemakers even in the Happy Canyon and Willamette Valley vineyards that she sources from, toting color-coded maps of each property and often telling her crews to stop picking midway through a block if she notices something out of whack.“That means I pick what’s right,” said Joseph, “and I can make great wine out of that.” Though there is occasional variation, each vintage usually results in three different sauvignon blancs: the Happy Canyon blend, to show regional balance; the stainless steel–aged Goosebury, to show off freshness; and the French oak–aged Hunnysuckle, to reveal a bit more opulence. There is a variety of pinots, both from Fiddlestix (, Doyle, and Lollapalooza) and from the Willamette Valley (Alloro and Oldsville Reserve), as well as the sparkling  Bubbles and the fast-selling Pink Fiddle, a rosé of pinot noir. Each of the wines find a perfect partner during a lunch of fennel-roasted pork, tomato-bread salad, saucy green beans, and berry-filled shortcakes prepared — as is usual during harvest season at Fiddlehead — by Lompoc-based chef Sissy Gil, who joins the weary but joyous crew around the table in the parking lot. These communal times are what keep Joseph excited about her work year in and year out and what she invests her money in, alongside top-of-the-line equipment.“I don’t need some fancy château,” explained Joseph, whose biggest structure on the Fiddlestix property is an old wooden barn. As for the long nights during harvest? “I’m a really good catnapper,” said Joseph, with yet another grin.

BY DESIGN: Learn from the master when graphic artist Michael Schwab delivers a lecture on September 25 at the Balboa Building.




Since its inception in 2009, the Mission Poetry Series has held readings at the Mission Renewal Center, featuring the work of emerging and established poets. This month, the series is moving over to Granada Books, the city’s newest independent bookstore, which opened at  State Street in June. September Voices: Three Poets for the Autumn Equinox kicks off on Saturday, September 21, at 1 p.m. with refreshments, complimentary broadsides, and readings from three regional writers. Among those featured are poets Emma Trelles and Michael McLaughlin (pictured left). A former resident of Florida, Trelles now lives in Santa Barbara. Many of her poems drip with the cloying heat of the south, while others turn their focus to internal landscapes: A mind needs a place to set its teeth, and grace arrives in fixing the toilet, in water smoothing the pre-dawn fears of possible cysts, faulty seatbelts, the radio loop of reasons I’m needed and belong nowhere.

FOREVER EVOLVING Michael Schwab Talks Heroes, Graphic Arts Design nerds, take note. This Wednesday, acclaimed illustrator and graphic artist Michael Schwab will swing through town for a public discussion and career retrospective. Schwab’s talk, titled Creating the Hero: The Evolution of a Style, finds the artist looking back and exploring the legendary people, projects, and encounters that helped define his career. While the subject matter may be skewed toward the more artistically inclined, Schwab’s history and work are most definitely made for mass consumption. Over the course of his 30-year career, he’s designed posters and logos for Apple, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Wells Fargo, Robert Mondavi, and the National Park Service, and worked with everyone from Rolling Stone to Levi’s. Schwab’s talk takes place September 25, at 6 p.m. in the Balboa Building ( State St.) and is sponsored by the S.B. chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts.

he inspiration for Noises Off, Michael Frayn’s 1982 comedy about a ragtag theater company’s desperate attempts to stay together long enough to finish a tour, famously came from watching a play from backstage. Frayn was in the wings while Lynn Redgrave, among others, performed one of his earlier shows, a farce called The Two of Us, when it hit him — this angle is even funnier than the one the audience sees. Proceeding from that insight, he created what has proved to be one of the most durable and popular comedies in the modern repertoire. On Friday, September 20, the show kicks off a run at Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre that will last nearly until Halloween — ending on October 27, to be exact. What makes this production special? First off, there’s the outstanding cast, which includes such mainstays of the Circle Bar B barn as William York Hyde (who has also designed and built an ingenious set), Susie Couch, George Coe, and Tiffany Story. The show’s director, Miller James, will play the director in the play, and if that’s not already confusing enough, MAKE SOME NOISE: Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre presents Michael Frayn’s play within a play Noises Off starting this Friday, September 20. he will alternate in the role with another CBB regular, Joseph Beck.

It may be a cliché, but thirty-something libertine Pete Doherty, like a fine wine, just gets better with age. So Babyshambles’ third studio album, Sequel to the Prequel, prudently produced and mixed by the returning Stephen Street and arriving six years on the heels of the strident Shotter’s Nation, finds Doherty and company in less of a shambles and more of a solid groove. Maybe the years between albums spent on his solo projects, modeling, and acting proved therapeutic for Doherty, ’cause he’s returned with one hell of a great record. Then, maybe Drew McConnell and Mick Whitnall pitching in on songwriting helped, too. Opening track “Fireman” draws on elements of The Fall, elsewhere the sublime “Fall From Grace” lifts licks from Dylan’s “I Want You” as Doherty liltingly croons: “Can we go someplace where they know my face / Gather round now, bear witness to my fall from grace.” This variegated disc also features the Libertinesworthy rocker “Maybelline,” and the old-school ’70s dancehall funk of “Dr. No.” Of particular note is lead guitarist Whitnall’s gorgeous playing on the zoologically trippy “Penguins.” All this and Damien Hirst artwork on the cover? The verdict: genius.

In addition to publishing a novel and three poetry collections, McLaughlin has extensive experience teaching writing to incarcerated youth and adults. In a paean to the inmates he teaches, McLaughlin writes: Sonny Kurt Enrique Jaime Animal Dixon Dave, Kurt Woody/Neihart Lamb You wouldn’t’ve kept coming if you’d hated it Now you know Poetry’s no scam. Also featured this month is the work of the late poet and memoirist Kurt Brown (center), founder of the Aspen Writers’ Conference. Brown lived in Santa Barbara with his wife, poet Laure-Anne Bosselaar, and died unexpectedly last June after complications from surgery. Mission Poetry Series cofounder Paul Fericano spoke of Brown as “the real deal in the poetry world; a rare breed who often promoted poetry, period, above his own work.” Among Brown’s recent poems is “Present Tense,” which ends with a vision made all the more poignant by his passing: But isn’t that what childhood is all about, a pre-verbal idyll without time before the snake of language slithered in and hissed you are dying, you will die, you have died.

IN A FLASH: DNA cofounders Derren (left) and Ana Ohanian pose inside DNA Imagery’s Gutierrez Street studio.


Derren and Ana Ohanian Are Breathing New Life into S.B.’s Art Scene by Rachel Cabakoff


ou’ve probably seen their logo around town — an impossibleto-miss hot pink ice cream cone with an eyeball on top. The weirdly flashy insignia is meant to represent “eye candy,” and it belongs to DNA Imagery, a full-service design and lifestyle brand born in downtown Santa Barbara. Over the past six and a half years, DNA has carved out a neat little niche for itself, offering everything from photo and video production to web and graphic design to app development and event planning. Newlyweds and founders Derren and Ana Ohanian both attended Santa Barbara High School but didn’t meet until 2006, two years after graduation. College wasn’t really in the plans for either Derren or Ana, they explained last month from DNA’s Gutierrez Street headquarters. Instead, the pair dove headfirst into what interested them most: photography. They bought a Sony Cyber-shot and joined the Photoshop craze, offering to shoot for free around town to build up their clientele. But the prospect of being young entrepreneurs in an affluent community posed problems from the start. “It was very intimidating,” Derren said. “I didn’t know how to do taxes. I didn’t go to college. I’m all self-taught. It really came down to a personal will and determination.” Still, the clients slowly started rolling in. Derren recalls a Jill Johnson fashion show at EOS Lounge as the catalyst for DNA’s first round of success. After that, he says, he and Ana started photographing events once a week, posting their snaps online for partygoers to peruse the next day. “We would get paid $50 bucks for the night. I would shoot there for hours and then go home

SWEET FILTER: Earlier this year, DNA launched Photo Candy, a mobile app that allows users to manipulate photos using multiple filters, effects, and settings. and edit for hours,” Derren said. “I didn’t have to do that, we didn’t have to do that, but we were passionate about it.” And their attention to detail showed. Working off the slogan “Love, passion, photos,” the pair started making their presence known among Santa Barbara’s active nightlife scene. “It went from absolutely nothing to shooting six night clubs in Santa Barbara,” Derren said. “We had 500,000 hits coming to our website every month.”

DNA’s new motto became, “Work hard, party harder.” But the site quickly became the opposite of DNA’s original vision; instead of promoting creativity, the Ohanians were promoting a party scene, and they wanted out. “I felt like we kind of lost our core essence and what my soul was screaming at me to do. I looked back on everything and thought,‘What is the message that we’re putting out here to the masses?’” Derren said.

They got out of Santa Barbara and moved to Ana’s hometown in the Philippines, and after some time to clear their minds and restructure their vision, they returned to the West Coast. But why back to Santa Barbara? “It’s an inspiring situation in itself, the people and the connections we had here. We knew how important and wonderful the community is in Santa Barbara, and we wanted to stay,” Ana said.“I knew that if we were going to stay here, that I wanted to do something positive.” In 2011, the couple moved back, bought a gallery space, and started to rebrand. The first step was a new slogan: “Don’t hate, create.” Next up: growing DNA’s scope. Upon returning, the Ohanians started to recruit friends and artists who offered services like screen printing and iPhone app development under the DNA umbrella. (The company’s first app, Photo Candy, allows users to edit and manipulate pictures on their mobile devices.) They also added another branch to DNA’s company, The DNA Life, which encourages creativity by showcasing artists, fashion, music, and photography from around the world through events and promotion. “We want to focus on just building this lifestyle brand, getting people to be more creative, and to think outside of the box,” Derren said. They’ve amped up their presence in S.B., too. In addition to art openings at the DNA Studio, you can now find DNA at the Downtown Organization’s monthly st Thursday art walks. They’ve also paired up with Youth Interactive, a Santa Barbara–based nonprofit that aids students by teaching them about technology, entrepreneurship, and working in the arts. “Something that Ana and I are passionate about is that we want to instill in the youth that there are other options out there where you can actually invest in yourself right now,” said Derren.

Violinist Paul Huang Opens the 2013-2014 Camerata Pacifica Season by Tom Jacobs


amerata Pacifica, the area’s premier chamber music ensemble, begins its 24th season on Friday, and its programming is as adventuresome as ever. Alongside masterworks by Mozart and Beethoven are numerous works from recent decades, plus several world premieres. Rather than Bach, we’ll hear Auerbach. If you’re looking through the season-opening program and thinking, “I have no idea what any of this will sound like,” don’t feel bad. Neither did one of the principal performers. “I knew [American composer] John Harbison’s name, but I was not familiar with his music at all,” admitted violinist Paul Huang. “But I’m finding it very interesting. I gather he was very much influenced by Stravinsky, and I do find similarities.” Friday’s concerts (at 1 and 7:30 p.m. in Hahn Hall) feature two works Harbison wrote in the 1980s. That makes them older than Huang, who was born in 1990, but has already established himself as a major artist. “He sounds like a wire filament: lithe but with a metallic bite,” the New York Times wrote when he made his New York recital debut late last year. His connection to Camerata was through cellist Ani Aznavoorian, who recommended him to artistic director Adrian Spence. (He’s also friends with several of the group’s other principals.) And Huang didn’t hesitate to accept the invitation. “Eighty percent of my season consists of concertos and recital dates,” he said. “I grab every chance RISING STAR: Violinist Paul Huang is sure to that I get to play chamber music. Playing it allows me make a big impression in his debut with Camerata to develop and grow musically. It’s really the pinnacle Pacifica on Friday, September 20. of music-making.” A native of Taiwan and resident of New York City, Huang grew up surrounded by music. “My parents are tones featuring that music! So it’s a place to start. I explain great music lovers,” he said.“Every room in our house back to them it’s a baroque piece written for a string ensemble in Taiwan has a CD player!

HIS NAME IS MAC by Charles Donelan



Dr. John Takes the Stage at the Granada

is real name is still Mac Rebennack. More than 40 years after inventing “Dr. John, the Night Tripper” as a persona for his initial solo recordings and outrageous, mystical stage act, this New Orleans legend keeps a clear distinction between the persona and the accomplished musician and record producer behind it, although both characters share a GRIS GRIS MAN: Mac penchant for hip patois. Witness Rebennack, a k a Dr. John, the Rebennack’s outgoing voicemail king of New Orleans music, will message, which urges callers to be mixing a deep gumbo at the “make it sweet” because “Mac don’t Granada on Friday. want to hear nothin’ beat.” On Friday, September 20, Rebennack will take the stage at the Granada Theatre as Dr. John for an evening of musical gumbo, that idiosyncratic, infectious blend of zydeco, boogie-woogie, rock ’n’ roll, pop, and jazz that has made him a national treasure. His 2012 album, Locked Down (produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach), has been acclaimed as one of the best of his career, and, as always, Dr. John doesn’t go anywhere without a stellar band. I caught up with the gravel-voiced Rebennack by phone last week, and he set me straight on a number of key issues, from the meaning of the expression “locked down” to the origin of his Dr. John persona.

Could you define the expression “locked down”? It’s a lot of things. When you don’t need any more, and you’ve got everything in place, then anything is possible, and “locked down” is one way of saying that’s where you are at. When it’s locked down, it’s all good. Like with this band I am bringing to Santa Barbara; I’ve got Sarah Morrow leading the group, and it’s locked down, because she’s a killer. You’ve made a lot of great records, both in your career and recently. Do you enjoy going into the studio? Yeah, I always have a good time in studios because I have been a record producer since day one. I’ve recorded so many places — in New Orleans, but also in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, London — and I’m comfortable just about anywhere I can set up with a good room and a mixing board. When you started in New Orleans, you were making rock ’n’ roll records under your own name, but when you came out to Los Angeles, you created the persona of Dr. John. How did that come about? I had gotten the offer to produce my own record, but the group that I was leading had a singer at the time that was not me, and the executives at the record label kept talking about how we should sound, especially in terms of the vocal style.“It should sound like Curtis Mayfield” they would say, or “What about a Staple Singers sound?” So finally I was like, “like something?” Why would I want to record an album that was like something that was already out? And I decided that I was not doing that. At the time I had a conga player in the band, Mo Pedido, he was from Cuba, and we were close. We were in the studio with ATCO Records, and the group recording right before us was Sonny and Cher. Anyway, Mo and I were listening to them, and they were big at the time, and Mo said to me, “Listen to Sonny, or Bob Dylan — you don’t have to put some singer out front. It’s your music; you should sing it yourself.” And he was right. My voice out front was the right move, and the Dr. John thing was a way of saying that’s what I had decided to do.

Is there anything you would like to say to people in Santa Barbara about the upcoming show? Anybody who can get there, they

should know that it’s going to be a free-and-easy type of scene. I like to see people get rowdy.

a&e | POP, ROCK & JAZZ PREVIEW DOG DAYS: Philly’s Dr. Dog will release its eighth studio album on October 1 and play the Santa Barbara Bowl on September 26.

Behind the Music Sneak a Peek at Dr. Dog’s B-Room


MUSIC CON FERENCE & FESTIVAL over 50 bands at 6 venues 3 days & speakers

by Aly Comingore


hough lead songwriters Toby Leaman and Scott McMicken have been collaborating on songs for more than 20 years, Dr. Dog may just now be coming into its own. Since adding drummer Eric Slick and multiinstrumentalist Dimitri Manos in 2012, the band has toured extensively. Next month, they’ll release their eighth studio album, B-Room, the first output from the band’s all-new, handmade home studio. It’s also the most collaborative record Dr. Dog has made yet. Talking to Leaman from his Philadelphia home last week, he explained that B-Room is the product of a new approach that included writing in the studio, arranging as a group, and, for Leaman, learning to let go. “We were trying to use the band as part of the process this time,” he said. “We’ve been recording for so long, so there aren’t a lot of strange sonic things that we haven’t already messed around with. To us, the novel thing was really using the band and trying to find out how badass we can get and how strong we can be together.” On a sonic level, Leaman said, the album doesn’t stretch too far from Dr. Dog’s established vibe. The band is still chasing its inspirations, a combination of ’60s rock and pop icons ranging from the Beatles to the Beach Boys and ’90s lo-fi heroes like Pavement. But in place of the frenzied feel of past records, B-Room promises to be simpler, cleaner, and more pared down. “I feel like, more than any of our other records, this one just moves more,” said Leaman. “It sounds less schizophrenic. When everyone’s playing and everyone’s thinking about what everyone else is doing, it sort of leads you to playing simpler and more complementary things and not feeling like you’re doing a lot of the heavy lifting on your own.” Since forming the band in 1999, Leaman and childhood friend McMicken have in many ways carried Dr. Dog’s torch. They’ve seen the band through multiple lineup changes; written, arranged, and engineered most of the band’s records; and often acted as Dr. Dog’s in-house coproducers. “That’s kind of how we’ve always worked,” said Leaman.“We’re not the kind of band that gets a budget for a record and starts asking, ‘Oh, where are we gonna record? Who are we gonna get to produce it? What is it gonna sound like?’ The only decision we make is ‘When are we starting?’” For this go-round, that also meant building a new home studio, which the band designed and constructed from the ground up.“We put the control room in, and we built the tracking room, and we did it all to our own specs,” said Leaman. “We all grew up doing home recording, and I believe that’s when you do your best work — when you’re not uncomfortable and you’re not feeling like you’re invading somebody else’s space or wasting somebody else’s time.” In fact, even the album’s title stems from the new recording space. In addition to a main studio, Dr. Dog’s new home contains a “B room,” where the majority of the record’s vocals were recorded, mostly to a  A-track tape machine that the band has been using for close to a decade. “We did [most of the vocals] by ourselves in the B room, late night, with nobody around,” said Leaman. With less than a month until the album’s release, and a massive tour alongside The Lumineers on the horizon, Leaman can’t help but get excited about playing new songs in new venues (and being on the receiving end of catered meals). He’s also gained a newfound perspective on Dr. Dog’s still-evolving dynamic. “Why Scott and I have always worked well together is because we just like what the other person does so much,” he said.“For the past 20 years, we’ve been writing next to each other and influencing each other in a way that isn’t just hearing someone else’s song and copying it. It’s like a little ladder, and each little rung is getting us somewhere new.” Dr. Dog plays the Santa Barbara Bowl (1122 N. Milpas St.) with The Lumineers on Thursday, September 26, at 6:30 p.m. Call 962-7411 or visit for tickets and info.

No Age Digs Deep and Gets Hands-On for An Object by Aly Comingore

PART OF THE PROCESS: For their fourth release, No Age (from left: Dean Spunt and Randy Randall ) constructed an album that’s got the band’s fingerprints all over it — literally.


Dean is using a bunch of new stuff on this record — bass guitar, contact mikes. How did not having him on the drums affect the way you approached the songs? It was a huge way of changing up the way we wrote. It kind of pulled my feet out from underneath me. I was so used to looking over at him on the kit; it took a head nod and a blink and a twitch, and the song would just come. Then it was different. He’d be on bass with these contact mikes, and I didn’t know what sound was going to come out. So I’d wait and hear. It was like changing dance partners; you kind of start knowing how to do it, but it’s slightly different in a way where you can’t trust your same instincts. It was good, though. It really kept me on my toes. Can you talk a bit about putting the record together? The idea of manhandling 10,000 individual covers came from Dean. It was a part, I believe, of his inspiration for really attacking this record as a whole concept, meaning that it had to be constructed and seen through in a handmade way to the furthest extent possible. In the beginning, I was kind of resistant if not completely against this whole idea. I couldn’t think of anything I wanted less than to sit in a room and fold 10,000 record sleeves. But as we talked more and more, I understood where he was coming from. … There’s something kind of perverse now that the record’s out and people have been bringing it to us to sign. It’s a funny feeling, like someone is bringing something from your yard sale back to you. You get to look at it and go, “Oh, I remember this one! It’s stamped here, and we did it on this day.” You sort of want to see them all and ask for them back, but you’re also really happy to let them go. No Age plays Wednesday, September 25, 8 p.m., Ojai Rancho Inn (615 W. Ojai Ave.). Preshow starts at 4 p.m. Tickets: 646-1434 or

[ ]

You guys scrapped a whole round of recordings in the process of making this record. What happened? We started writing in the beginning of 2012, and we were having conflicting feelings about some of the songs. They all kind of felt like older songs, and, despite our best effort to pull out of them what we did like, we sort of had to call bullshit on ourselves. We were kind of hesitant about it, but we drove out to Texas and started recording with Tim Kerr at this awesome studio in Austin. We weren’t 100 percent sold on the songs, but we had the time booked, and we really wanted to work with Tim, so we went in hoping he would help us in more of a producer type of role. That was our hope, but the whole thing ended up to be pretty ill-fated because our hearts weren’t in it. We were questioning everything every step of the way. So we came back and started recording

songs in October/November 2012 and basically went for three months, and all that stuff became An Object.

who. what. now.

f there were ever a band that embodied the do-it-yourself ethos, it would be No Age. Even before the making of this year’s hand-packaged album, the Los Angeles duo was operating on a strict diet of DIY. It all (mostly) began in Downtown L.A.’s The Smell, a small, disheveled club known for its not-forprofit, all-ages credo. There, alongside acts like Abe Vigoda, Pocahaunted, and Mika Miko, guitarist Randy Randall and drummer Dean Spunt amassed a fervent fan base behind their reverbed-out sound experiments and gloriously fuzzy rock anthems. In the years since, No Age has carried the torch for The Smell’s tight-knit scene, singing its praises — and instilling its ethics — even as they climbed to the majors. Nowadays, No Age sits comfortably atop the roster of music’s biggest indie label: Sub Pop Records. They’ve been touted by Pitchfork, performed alongside actress Chloë Sevigny, and scored a film for haute couture fashion label Rodarte. Last month, No Age unveiled An Object, the band’s fourth studio album and first since 2010’s Everything in Between. For this go-round, Randall and Spunt started a record, scrapped a record, and ultimately switched up their instruments to make an album that pushes the boundaries of No Age’s back catalog. They also put the whole thing together themselves — all 10,000 copies of it. I recently caught up with Randall to discuss the process, the problems, and the conceptual idea behind An Object.

EAST MEETS WEST: New Jersey’s Real Estate (from left: Alex Bleeker, Martin Courtney, and Matt Mondanile ) head to Cali for a string of tour dates this week. They play SOhO Restaurant & Music Club on September 25.

Prime Real Estate by Aly Comingore JERSEY BOYS: Few bands capture a vibe quite the way Real Estate does. Since forming in 2009, the New Jersey trio-turned-quintet has capitalized on their suburban home base and crafted tunes and tones that speak directly to the highs and lows of life amid the sprawl. In turn, the band has gifted us with two shimmering LPs: 2009’s Real Estate and 2011’s Days. Both albums offer no shortage of vintage surf rock–inspired hooks, shimmering lo-fi guitar tones, and sweetly nostalgic lyrics, all delivered with a genuine reverence for the people and the streets that inspired them. This week, Real Estate heads west for a set at the famed Big Sur music gathering known as Woodsist Fest. En route to and from, the guys will play a handful of SoCal venues, including our own SOhO Restaurant & Music Club on September 25. With them, they will bring new material off their forthcoming (and much anticipated) third album. “We just finished mixing it, and it sounds done to me,” said Martin Courtney last week from his New Jersey home. Recorded in Chicago with an asyet-unnamed producer, the album stands to further ingratiate Real Estate to the indie-rock masses. Both their debut and Days earned the coveted “Best New Music” title from Pitchfork, and in discussing the inspiration for LP #3, Courtney asserted that the record will continue to explore the sounds that have marked the band’s past outputs. “There’s an ideal sound in my mind that we’re trying to achieve that’s pretty specific to us,” he said. “Production-wise, there are definitely some touchstones: late-’70s, really dead drum sounds are one of my favorite things. Other than that, I’ve been listening to a lot of Nick Drake — especially the full band arrangements on Pink Moon and stuff. I got pretty into a lot of mid-’70s singer/ songwriter-type people, even Joni Mitchell and Tim Hardin.” And while Courtney is hesitant to disclose too much about the record, he’s more than happy to talk about the band’s upcoming journey out west — and their big return to Woodsist. “We’re really lucky to have gotten to play in Big Sur for the past three years in a row. We get to look forward to it almost like a tradition at this point,” he said.“The first time I ever went out to California, I was 15 or 16, and it was really special. And it’s still really special, but now we’ve got all our friends out there that we get to see.” Real Estate plays SOhO Restaurant & Music Club ( State St.) on Wednesday, September 25, at 8 p.m. Call 962-7776 or visit for tickets and info. GET YOUR VOTE ON: Today’s the day! From now through Thursday, September 26, at midnight, log on to and cast your vote for your favorite Santa Barbara band.

In other words, Austenland, for all of its creative powers and incidental screen treats, fails to rise to the level of Jane Austen, or even the intellectual cottage industry of Jane Austen obsession.

Camino Real/ Paseo Nuevo

Thanks for Sharing (112 mins.;

Keri Russell is a fascinating actress on the American scene, an amalgam of character traits, including the pretty but natural allAmerican woman, a quirky yet traditional figure with self-determination and potential for eccentricities. As such, Russell seems ideally cast — and ultimately saves the day — in the strange, sometimes frustrating, and sometimes bemusing Austenland, based on Shannon Hale’s 2007 novel and directed by Jerusha (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) Hess. Russell plays a thirtysomething who has long been a hopeless Jane Austen addict (you know the type, or maybe you are one … or maybe I am one, in some small degree). We follow this hopelessly antiquarian fetishist on an “alternative holiday” vision quest, to the British “Austenland,” which the matronly über-Lady of the operation (Jane Seymour) describes as “the world’s only immersive Austen experience.” Here, modernity is disinvited and guests are flung back to the Regency period and to the manners and manipulations of well-dressed Brits populating such Austen classics as Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. If the puzzle pieces of Austenland’s conceptual structure worked more effectively than they do, there would be more fluid interchange between the paradoxes built into the story. The cat-and-mouse game playing of Austen’s social milieus could extend into the theme of acting versus authentic emotions and the idea of an obsession with antique things as a refuge from contemporary life abrasions. We get a taste of these syntheses but not enough to stave off the feeling that these charac-

After the great success of The Conjuring, which was sheer genius and a surprise blockbuster, comes this sequel to James Wan’s rather disappointing horror film, the first “chapter” of Insidious. It turns out the use of novelistic terminology isn’t far from apt, since this outing writes over the seeming unanswered questions of the first film, like who’s playing the goddamned piano and what was that creepy bearded guy in the second-story window all about? In a way, the nifty wraparound of this added plot makes the first film make more sense and somehow improves it. But neither of the Insidious films are nearly as scary or clever as Conjuring. Wan’s method, post-Saw, is the wholesale theft of ideas from previous masters, and this one owes tons of gimmicks to Spielberg’s Poltergeist, even the friendly but woo-woo medium (Lin Shaye) looks like her counterpart in the earlier epic venture into the spirit world. The director’s instincts are clearly improving, though; with a mixture of bungling humor, titillating little scares, and big ghost payoffs, the whole film feels nicely modulated and hard to predict. What Wan does that really reveals a level of growing Hollywood professionalism is end this story with a satisfying (though vaguely suspicious) group hug and then moving on to another bump in the night. It’s a trick that screams “The End Is Not Near!” It’s nice to know that terror awaits us in the future. (DJP) Camino Real/Metro 4

✯ Elysium (109 mins.; R: strong bloody violence, language throughout)

Battle of the Year (109 mins.; PG-13: language, rude behavior)

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) 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 African-American butler working in the White House at numerous significant points throughout the 20th century. Ambitious in its scope, and an important film in its subject matter, The Butler is a rousing success on many fronts, even if its truth cred is wanting. (JW) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo 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. There’s a lot less to Riddick than most sci-fi offerings — and that’s a good thing. These are the voyages of a manly, sneaky guy trying to make his way home through a merciless universe. (DJP) Fairview/Fiesta 5

✯ 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. Short Term  is a small movie that manages to explore the edge of hard truths and exhilarating artifice through terrific acting and a great script. (DJP) Metro 4

(90 mins.; PG-13: some strong language, sexual material)

We’re the Millers (110 mins.; R: crude

Morgan Neville directs this documentary about the life and struggles of pop-music backup singers. Touches of genius dot this delight-packed documentary concerning the fate of those nearly invisible, often indispensable voices behind the stars. (DJP) Metro 4

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

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)

[ ]

Arlington/Camino Real/Metro 4

Rush (123 mins.; R: sexual content, nudity,

who. what. now.


sexual content, pervasive language, drug material, brief graphic nudity)

✯ 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.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER  ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): “If Taylor Swift is going to have six breakups a year,” observed comedian Bill Maher, “she needs to write a new song entitled ‘Maybe It’s Me.’” He was referring to Swift’s habit of using her romantic misadventures to stimulate her lyric-writing creativity. With that as your prompt, Aries, I’ll ask you to do some soulsearching about your own intimacy issues. How have you contributed to the problems you’ve had in getting the love and care you want? What unconscious behavior or conditioned responses have undermined your romantic satisfaction, and what could you do to transform them? The next eight weeks will be prime time to revolutionize your approach to relationships.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Philosopher Alan Watts used to talk about how the whole world is wiggling all the time. Clouds, trees, sky, water, human beings: Everything’s constantly shimmying and jiggling and waggling. One of our problems, Watts said, is that we’re “always trying to straighten things out.”We feel nagging urges to deny or cover up or eliminate the wiggling.“Be orderly,” we command reality. “Be neat and composed and predictable.” But reality never obeys. It’s forever doing what it does best: flickering and fluctuating and flowing. In accordance with astrological omens, Taurus, I encourage you to rebel against any natural tendencies you might have to fight the eternal wiggle. Instead, celebrate it. Rejoice in it. Align yourself with it.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Author Elaine Scarry defines “the basic impulse underlying education” as follows: the “willingness to continually revise one’s own location in order to place oneself in the path of beauty.” Consider making this your modus operandi in the coming weeks, Gemini. Always be on the lookout for signs that beauty is near. Do research to find out where beauty might be hiding and where beauty is ripening. Learn all you can about what Homework: Unleash an outrageous boast about how you’re going to pull off a certain feat that you’ve previously lacked the chutzpah to attempt. Testify at

kinds of conditions attract beauty, and then create those conditions. Finally, hang around people who are often surrounded by beauty. This approach will be an excellent way to further your education.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): “Life is either always a tightrope or a feather bed. Give me the tightrope.” So declared writer Edith Wharton. But she was an Aquarius, and more temperamentally suited to the tightrope. Many of you Cancerians, on the other hand, prefer to emphasize the feather-bed mode. I suspect that in the next nine months, however, you will be willing and even eager to spend more time on the tightrope than is customary for you. To get primed for the excitement, I suggest you revel in some intense feather-bed action in the coming weeks. Charge up your internal batteries with an extra-special deluxe regimen of sweet self-care.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Half of a truth is better than no truth at all, right? Wrong! If you latch on to the partially accurate story, you may stop looking for the rest of the story. And then you’re liable to make a premature decision based on insufficient data. The better alternative is to reject the partially accurate story and be willing to wait around in the dark until the complete revelation comes. That may be uncomfortable for a while. But when the full truth finally straggles in, you will be very glad you didn’t jump to unripe conclusions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): A Chinese entrepreneur named Nin Nan dreamed up a unique way to generate capital: He sold dead mosquitoes online for a dollar apiece, advertising them as useful for scientific research and decoration. Within two days, he received 10,000 orders. Let’s make him your patron saint and role model for the next few weeks, Virgo. May he inspire you to come up with novel ways to stimulate your cash flow. The planetary omens suggest that your originality is more likely than usual to generate concrete rewards.



(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): “The most important thing is to find out what the most important thing is,” wrote Shunryu Suzuki in his book Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind. That’s your assignment for the next three weeks. Do whatever it takes to find out beyond any doubt what the most important thing is. Meditate naked an hour a day. Go on long walks in the wildest places you know. Convene intense conversations about yourself with the people who know you best. Create and sign a contract with yourself in which you vow to identify the experience you want more than any other experience on earth. No waffling allowed, Libra. What is the single most important thing?

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Have you been getting enough? I doubt it. I think you should sneak a peek into the hiding place where your insatiable cravings are stored. If you’re brave enough, also take a look at your impossible demands and your unruly obsessions and your suppressed miracles. Please note: I’m not suggesting that you immediately unleash them all; I don’t mean you should impulsively instigate an adventure that could possibly quench your ravenous yearnings. But I do believe you will benefit from becoming better acquainted with them. You could develop a more honest relationship, which would ultimately make them more trustworthy.



(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Sometime in the next nine months you may feel moved to embark on an adventure that will transform the way you understand reality. Maybe you will choose to make a pilgrimage to a sacred sanctuary or wander further away from your familiar comforts than you ever have before. Right now is an excellent time to brainstorm about the possibilities. If you don’t feel ready to actually begin your quest, at least formulate a master plan for the magic moment when you will be ripe.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Don’t tape your thumbs to your hands and stalk around pretending to be a dinosaur. Don’t poke three holes in a large plastic garbage bag and wear it as a tunic while imagining that you are a feudal serf in a postapocalyptic, sci-fi dystopia. Don’t use a felt-tip marker to draw corporate logos on your face to show everyone what brands of consumer goods you love. To be clear: I would love you to be extravagantly creative. I hope you will use your imagination in novel ways as you have fun playing with experimental scenarios. But please exercise a modicum of discernment as you wander way outside the box. Be at least 20 percent practical.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): In the indigenous culture of Hawai‘i, “mana” refers to a spiritual power that may abide in people, objects, and natural locations. You can acquire more of it by acting with integrity and excellence, but you might lose some of it if your actions are careless or unfocused. For instance, a healer who does a mediocre job of curing her patients could lose the mana that made her a healer in the first place. I believe that similar principles hold true for non-Hawaiians. All of us have an evershifting relationship with the primal life force. What’s the current state of your own personal supply, Sagittarius? It’s time to make sure you’re taking full advantage of the mana you have been blessed with. Your motto: “Use it or lose it.”

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): “Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic,” says the poet Marty McConnell. That’s good advice, Pisces — not just in regard to your intimate relationships, but about all your other alliances, too. If you’re seeking a friend or consultant or business partner or jogging companion or new pet, show a preference for those creatures who look at you like maybe you are magic. You always need to be appreciated for the sweet mystery and catalytic mojo you bring to your partnerships, but you especially need that acknowledgment now.

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.
