While visiting his home in Urubamba, Peru, for some much-needed dentistry, Santa Barbaran Craig Harris (seated) caught up with a copy of The Santa Barbara Independent and tried to get a few Q’eros interested in some hometown journalism. An inveterate trekker, Craig spent five days circumnavigating Ausangate in the Peruvian Andes. The 46-mile trip led him through the town of Tinque, where he got acclimated to the rarefied atmosphere at 13,000 feet and up, which apparently had everyone puking, from the donkeys toting loads to the hikers from afar. Our unofficial correspondent from far-flung places is already back on the road, this time to West Papua, where he’s been documenting the struggle for independence. Travel safely, Craig.

Endorsements at a Glance


n this interim-year election for mayor and City Council — which takes place Tuesday, November 5 — voters cast their ballots by mail or walk them in. If you live in the City of Santa Barbara and haven’t yet received a ballot, call the City Clerk at 564-5309. Voters can deposit their ballots at City Hall ( Anacapa St.) during the week before the election, and City Hall will stay open on Saturday, November 2, to receive drop-off ballots 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. On Election Day, ballots can be dropped off 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. at City Hall, Calvary Baptist Church ( W. Islay St.), Franklin Neighborhood Center ( E. Montecito St.), and Grace Lutheran Church ( State St.). Postmarks are not accepted. Details at Bottom line: Cast your ballot!


Helene Schneider

Under Mayor Helene Schneider’s guidance, Santa Barbara’s City Council has worked as a highly functioning body, even with its members’ strong personal and political differences. In this time of political shutdown, it is a gift that Santa Barbara has a government that works — and that is in no small part due to Mayor Helene Schneider.


Harwood “Bendy” White

We are happy to endorse Bendy White — who seems built into the very DNA of City Hall, given his length of service on numerous boards and commissions. In the pursuit of new housing that’s affordable to people other than millionaires, he has already played a quiet leadership role in striking compromises. It’s an exceedingly delicate balancing act — one that Bendy White clearly gets.

Gregg Hart

Gregg Hart, a spokesperson for the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments, will bring to the council an obvious intelligence and sunny congeniality — and he knows traffic and transportation issues. With the caveat that Hart should recuse himself from council votes regarding the freeway, given his City Council tenure 10 years ago and his time on the Planning Commission before that, we know Gregg Hart’s qualified.

David Landecker

David Landecker has more than redeemed himself since resigning from City Council after being caught shoplifting 22 years ago. An effective and inventive executive director for Neighborhood Clinics and the Environmental Defense Center, he brings a lifetime of experience with nonprofits and private business alike. If he can keep his bull-in-the-chinashop proclivities on a short leash, we’re confident David Landecker can make a valuable contribution.


The Independent Endorses

OCTOBER 17-24, 2013




CAUTIOUS BUT HOPEFUL: School District Boardmember Ed Heron said he’d like to see the Charter School renewed as long as administrators address a number of concerns voiced by district staff.

Mixed Report Card

Racial and Fiscal Concerns Emerge at S.B. Charter School



ensions ran noticeably deep for the second time this month at the Santa Barbara Unified School District’s board meeting Tuesday evening. Deliberations over the district’s upcoming decision whether or not to grant a renewal for Santa Barbara Charter School (SBCS) rallied dozens of parents and faculty from the petite K- school located on the Goleta Valley Junior High School campus. Facing an arguably unforgiving staff report — which recommended boardmembers approve the charter but with certain conditions — Charter School administrators and parents challenged the district’s findings that the school’s education program and financial projections are “unsound” and “[do] not meet the likelihood for future success.” The report’s critical language reflects state education code, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Emilio Handall explained to a wary crowd. Handall wrote the report and told audience members — many wearing bright green buttons that said “Ask Me About Santa Barbara Charter School”— that the process is required by state law. Directives for Charter School presented by district staff included the following: creating fiscal projection, Professional Learning, and Common Core State Standards transition plans; coming up with descriptions of how to accommodate students at varying achievement levels; and taking action to better balance the school’s racial composition. The school’s Director of Operations Dave Weisman said the renewal process has been “about as different as we could have imagined” from past years, claiming the district’s report uses selective data to misrepresent the school as a whole and reaches “erroneous conclusions.” He said he wanted the district to grant the charter without the conditions. 12


Debate about the school’s overwhelmingly white campus and low test scores consumed much of the meeting’s public comment portion and subsequent input from trustees. Several concerned parents — a few mentioned their Hispanic background — took to the podium to commend Charter School administrators, who also tag-team as part-time teachers, for their dedication to a “holistic education” and using outside-the-box instructional methods with certain students. Boardmembers acknowledged overwhelming praise from parents in person and via numerous emails, but they also pointed to the fact that the school’s ethnic and racial makeup is close to a mirror opposite of K- students in the rest of the district. The report found 18 percent of Charter School students — 234 students are currently enrolled — are Hispanic, while in the entire district roughly 70 percent of elementary school students are Hispanic. The report calls for a 10 percent growth of Latino students enrolled each year for the next five years, which equates to 27.9 percent of Latino students enrolled by the 2018-2019 school year. In response to recent emails she had received, Board President Monique Limón said, “I’m not clear on why having two or eight more Latino students in a school is so upsetting to families.” After several crowd members vocally opposed the claim, she clarified, “Not all families.” Charter School attorney Jennifer McQuarrie — who joined Weisman and Director of Education Bev Abrams at the podium — later noted that the district’s requirement of a certain racial makeup at the school could be interpreted as an illegal quota system. Boardmember Ed Heron also expressed concern about the report’s demographic target, because although the school’s racial composition should seek to match that of the district’s, he said new students, who get

in via a lottery system, are admitted on a “pure gamble.” In terms of test scores, while comparing Charter School to three other traditional schools — which had similar demographics where white students are the majority group — the report indicated Monroe, Roosevelt, and Washington students outperformed Charter School students by 67-87 points on Academic Performance Index (API) tests. Weisman countered that the school’s score of 844 is well above the benchmark for an academically sound program and has improved by 47 points in the past two years. Analysis of test scores found that all of three of the aforementioned schools outperformed Charter School in English/language arts and in math. For English/language arts, 76.3 percent of Charter School students passed the STAR (Standardized Testing and Reporting) test, while between 86.4 and 90.2 percent of students at Monroe, Roosevelt, and Washington passed. In math, 70.1 percent of Charter School students passed compared to 89.9 and 91.3 percent at the other schools. Limón continued to emphasize that the charter renewal process is not intended to be an “I gotcha,” but an opportunity to look for ways to improve the school while respecting its independent governance model. In concluding comments, Weisman said: “When we read [the report], it felt like an ‘I gotcha’ moment.” Described as “difficult” but a step toward “moving forward” by the end of the two-hour discussion, Tuesday’s meeting marks the fourth time the 20-year-old-school has endured the renewal process. Within the next few weeks, Charter School administration is expected to address the conditions outlined by the district, and the boardmembers will conclude with a verdict on November 12. ■

News of the Week

Carlos Ruano (pictured), a Montecito church employee on trial last month for allegedly molesting his step-granddaughter, pleaded guilty 10/18 to felony false imprisonment. His trial had ended in a hung jury, 9-3 in favor of guilt. Based on the evidence and the wishes of the girl and her family, the District Attorney’s Office said it opted for the new false imprisonment charge instead of starting the process of a retrial. As part of his sentence, Ruano will receive credit for time served — 397 days in County Jail — so will not face additional time behind bars. However, he is currently under an Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) hold, and ICE agents will have two days after the last day of Ruano’s sentence to pick him up. Pending any action by ICE, Ruano, 67, also faces three years of felony probation and will be prohibited from contacting the victim and her family.

Undersheriff Jim Peterson, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office second-in-command since March 2011, abruptly retired from his post last week after more than 30 years of service with the department. Peterson was responsible for many of the department’s day-to-day operations and acted in Sheriff Bill Brown’s stead when he was out of town. Peterson, who said he was leaving for “personal reasons,” gave Brown his notice on 10/14, notified staff via email on 10/15, and was gone by 10/16. “His announcement came as a surprise to many in the Sheriff’s Office,” said Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. Chief Deputy of Law Enforcement Operations Don Patterson will act as undersheriff until a permanent replacement is found, she said. District Attorney Joyce Dudley was appointed to the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), Gov. Jerry Brown’s office announced 10/15. Dudley was the only elected official and district attorney appointed to the commission, which was created in 1959 to set selection and training standards for state law enforcement. The governor appoints 15 commissioners — who meet three times a year for a day and a half — for three-year overlapping terms. They provide advice and direction to POST’s 130 staff members. UCSB is already gearing up for the Halloween weekend in neighboring Isla Vista, and it announced last week parking restrictions on campus during the four-day bash. From 10/31 to 11/3, the campus will be closed to public parking between 5 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. the following day. To park on school grounds during these times,


The City of Santa Barbara’s proposed gang injunction was the topic du jour at the fourth meeting of the Pro-Youth Movement, an organization founded to seek alternatives to a punitive approach to juvenile crime. The meeting’s participants — a healthy mix of nonprofit representatives, activists, and concerned citizens numbering about 50 — discussed their questions about an order which, if approved by a judge, would limit the civil rights of Eastside and Westside gang members, namely their ability to associate with each other. The city first filed for an injunction in March 2011. According to activist Nayra Pacheco, a public-records request revealed that the city had already spent $481,000 pursuing the legal apparatus as of August 2012, over a year ago. Meeting participants wondered if there would be more opportunity for community input, how the legal process will unfold, and how it is determined who a gang member is. Cathy Murillo, the only city councilmember who opposes the injunction and a cofounder of the Pro-Youth Movement, was unsure whether juveniles would be named on the final list. The matter is expected to be heard in Superior Court by Judge Colleen Sterne sometime after the new year. According to Christy Haynes, a veteran youth worker specializing in violence prevention who is now the lead organizer of Pro-Youth Movement, the city administrator and city attorney were invited to the forum along with representatives of all the area law enforcement agencies (albeit without much advance notice), but nobody attended the — Brandon Fastman forum to defend the injunction.

cars must display a valid Reserved, “A,” “B,” “RS,” Annual Night & Weekend Parking Permit, or special-event permit. In addition, El Colegio Road may be closed. All other roads leading to I.V. will have checkpoints in place, and proof of residency will be required to enter.

CITY Santa Barbara city administrators have chosen Rebecca Bjork to serve as the interim public works director after current director Christine Andersen retires on 11/1. Bjork — who has served as the city’s Water Resources Manager since 2007 — will oversee Santa Barbara’s transportation system, water and wastewater facilities, and government-owned buildings and fleet. A recruitment effort has begun to permanently fill the seat, with an appointment expected by February 2014. Santa Barbara’s Braille Institute held a grand opening 10/24 for two new centers, both of which will be at the organization’s property on De la Vina Street. One of the additions, called the Low Vision Wellness Center, allows clients to meet with staff members one-on-one to gain mobility skills and tips for getting around their homes and public places. The second center, called Connection Pointe, teaches those who are visually impaired how to use iPads and closed-circuit TVs and take advantage of features like Braille displays, bigger fonts, and audiobooks. For more information, visit brailleinstitute .org/santabarbara.

GOLETA Developers and Goleta officials broke ground 10/16 for the city’s next big project: Hollister Village (artist’s rendering next column), an apartment complex-meets-retail-hub that spent several years working its way through the approval process while being championed by area business leaders and criticized by residents concerned about clogged roads and reduced mountain views. The project, located on Hollister Avenue across from the Camino Real Marketplace and expected to open in 2015, will offer 266 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments alongside a shopping center that could house a drugstore, grocery store, and restaurants. “We’re

so happy you’re coming into the neighborhood,” said Tony Vallejo, the chair of the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Kristen Miller, the chamber’s president, echoed that sentiment, lauding the project for being “right in the heart of our city, right where we employ people.” A move to streamline billing for customers of the Goleta Water District has instead led to lots of confusion, as glitches with integrating old data into new computer software is resulting in bill deliveries being about a month behind and, for some of those who’ve recently moved into the area, no bills at all. Though the new system, run by Global Water Resources and implemented 11 months ago, has already enlisted about a quarter of the district’s 16,700 ratepayers into electronic bill processing — thereby saving lots of paper and associated delivery costs — assistant manager David Matson admitted, “There are problems …. In this modern age, we’ve all experienced these glitches, but the bad software is leaving all of us frustrated and our customers inconvenienced.” Global Water Resources has about 90 more days to fix the problem, said Matson. It took $40 million and nearly a decade of work, but on 10/19, the Goleta Sanitary District officially dove into a new, healthier era for the wastewater that it treats, as the facility — located between the Santa Barbara Aiport and Highway 217 and serving most of the Goleta Valley as well as UCSB — is now able to provide full secondary treatment, which is an upgraded level of sewage scrubbing. The project, which started in 2004 but was completed more than a year ahead of schedule, was the end result of a legal quest begun in 2002 by Heal the Ocean, whose director Hillary Hauser cont’d page 14

Jail Taxi Hits the Skids

Funding for the Free Ride Service Is Drying Up




Gang Injunction, What’s Your Function?

or most people, the jail ride program goes unseen, occurring only in the dark of night. Peter Marin, one of its leaders, wants to bring it to light. Since Marin’s organization, the Committee for Social Justice (CSJ), took over the program a few years ago, a confluence of factors — an increased jail population, a consequentially busier jail staff, and tough economic times — have conspired to bring major change. The ride service provides Santa Barbara County Jail inmates who are released late at night or early in the morning with a free taxi to the Salvation Army, the Rescue Mission, the downtown transit center, St. Athanasius Orthodox Church in Isla Vista, or to Carpinteria. As it stands now, CSJ reimburses the cab company — RockStar Transportation — through its relatively small cache of private donations. But as the number of people getting rides is increasing at the same time that one of CSJ’s main donors is demanding that the government shoulder the ride costs, the program is in jeopardy, Marin said.

Markowitz Kidnapper Released


News of theWeek

Jesse Rugge (pictured), convicted on charges of aggravated kidnapping in connection with the killing of 15-year-old Nicholas Markowitz 13 years ago, was released from Chino prison after serving 11 years of a life sentence. The state parole board voted to release Rugge over the objections of Governor Jerry Brown, Santa Barbara prosecutors, and Susan Markowitz, the victim’s mother. Rugge was one of five young men arrested and convicted for the shooting masterminded by Jesse James Hollywood, a small-time San Fernando Valley pot dealer who ordered the kidnapping after Markowitz’s older brother ripped him off in a drug deal. Prosecutors alleged that Rugge was more intimately involved in the killing but could never prove it. Susan Markowitz reminded the 12 parole board officers that Rugge had initially told investigators that he had bound her son’s wrists with duct tape and had helped bury him after he’d been shot in the face at a location near Lizard’s Mouth. But those admissions were ruled inadmissible by Judge William Gordon because the investigator had suggested Rugge could face the death penalty if he didn’t confess. Rugge has never repeated those admissions, and during his trial he testified that he had left the group after they’d arrived at Lizard’s Mouth and had no idea that a murder was in the making. Speaking to the parole boardmembers, Rugge said he took responsibility for Markowitz’s death because his role in the kidnapping precipitated the chain of events that led to the murder. Ron Zonen, who prosecuted Rugge and the other four defendants, termed the admission “shallow and cynical,” and he objected that Rugge has never really acknowledged the depth of his involvement. According to state prison records, Rugge — now 33 — had been a model prisoner, had taken numerous classes, completed his GED, and participated in AA meetings. Rugge had come up for release several times prior, but he had always been turned down. Hollywood was convicted of ordering Markowitz killed and was sentenced to life. Ryan Hoyt, the actual triggerman, was sentenced to death. One of Hoyt’s attorneys was disbarred for professional misconduct shortly after his conviction. Whether Hoyt received competent representation will be the subject of lengthy appeals. — Nick Welsh

COUNTY The Santa Barbara County Trails Council has been awarded a $15,000 grant by the California Coastal Conservancy to improve the visitor experience along a 22-mile length of the Gaviota Coast. The grant will be used to develop maps designed to foster broad community knowledge of coastal recreation opportunities on one of the largest stretches of undeveloped coastline remaining in Southern California. The maps will be distributed through a community outreach campaign supported by a coalition of nature-focused nonprofit organizations including Los Padres Forest Association and the Wilderness Youth Project.

New Sober-Only Rules Spark More Questions Than Answers


ver since the Casa Esperanza Homeless Center announced it would no longer accept inebriated clients — and that it was excluding non-shelter residents from its free lunch program and afternoon drop-in center — the $64,000 question has been: “Where would all these people go?” The short answer, according to shelter director Mike Foley, is: “We don’t know.” For Santa Barbara City Councilmember Grant House, that wasn’t good enough: “Where are these people going, and what are we going to do when they get there?” Santa Barbara City Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss stated there’s been a 50 percent reduction in the number of calls for service in the lower Milpas Street neighborhood since the Casa began implementing the major policy changes IN NEED: Members of Santa Barbara’s homeless this summer, suggesting that perhaps community line up outside Casa Esperanza. many of the people drawn by the lure of free food and a convenient place to hang — stated he’d stayed at the shelter at various have left town.

A 30-minute drive for a lifetime of comfort

STATE Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a measure that allows specially trained nurses, physicians’ assistants, and certified midwives to perform early aspiration abortions within the first trimester of a woman’s pregnancy. Currently, only about half of the state’s 58 counties have abortion facilities, and the law greatly increases the number of available legal health-care providers to perform the procedure. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson strongly supported the measure and cited safety and expanded access for women in rural areas. The law will go into effect 1/1/14. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson’s bill increasing protections for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in the workplace was signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown. The law, effective 1/1/14, will better protect workers from retaliatory termination and discrimination and will require that employers help victims by changing their work numbers, moving their desks, or creating an office safety plan. The bill earned support of businesses, as well as a San Diego teacher fired after her abusive ex-husband came to her school. The Legal Aid Society found that almost half of California’s workplace victims reported being fired or worrying about being fired.

Boom Times for Squid Fishery

F Though rare, the ashy storm petrel (pictured) — a small gray seabird that lives on the Channel Islands and other offshore zones of the California coast — isn’t rare enough to warrant the federal protection of the Endangered Species Act. That’s what the U.S. Fish & Wildlife determined last week, denying for the second time the Center for Biological Diversity’s request that the bird be listed as either endangered or threatened. The center’s first attempt to list the petrel in 2007 was denied in 2009; the center sued to force the feds to reconsider their decision, but this latest decision reconfirmed Fish & Wildlife’s opinion that the bird is not in imminent danger of extinction. The center disagreed with the decision, citing multiple potential threats to the species, including rising sea levels, island predators, and light pollution from oil rigs and boats. ■

BY M AT T K E T T M A N N or the fourth year in a row — and with the fastest time ever since modern regulations began in 2005 — California’s squidfishing fleet (pictured) hit its annual limit early, with the more than 100 permitted boats landing about 118,000 tons of the slimy species known as Doryteuthis opalescens by October 18, nearly six months before the season ends on March 31, 2014. Much of that haul came from boats working the Channel Islands and Gaviota Coast with bright lights at night, when it’s easiest to snag the squid as they spawn near the shoreline. From there, the Southern California boats deliver their loads to processing centers in Ventura, Port Hueneme, and San Pedro, which then freeze the squid and ship most of them to China. Together with the squid fishers up north in the Monterey Bay, the industry rakes in about $70 million annually. “They’re the most valuable fishery in the state of California,” said Diane Pleschner-Steele, the Buellton-based director of the California Wetfish Producers Association, which represents commercial fishermen who catch squid, mackerel, sardine, and anchovy.“This was an unusual year. They were spawning way early and every-

where at the same time,” she explained, noting that her association’s research revealed more young squid in August than they usually see in the peak winter season. “It’s a phenomenon we haven’t seen before.” Another twist this year was that the fishermen and processing centers were enlisted to help track the catch, filing reports daily so that the California Department of Fish and Wildlife would know how much fish was being harvested and wouldn’t shut the season early, as had been done in years past. “We were able to help the department and also maximize the value of the fishery,” said Pleschner-Steele, whose association spearheaded the unique relationship and one day hopes for electronic tracking. “It’s an uncommon partnership.” But as much as squid fishermen relish these good years, they know the slow ones are only around the corner, as these “wetfish” species — so named because they were historically processed and put into cans while still wet — come in cycles. “Each resource has its ebbs and flows of abundance,” said Pleschner-Steele, “so you gotta make hay when the sun shines.” Next year’s season kicks off on April 1, 2014. ■ TYLER HAYDEN

winter and for women traveling alone and for the mentally ill — that it’s time for the government entities, who, aside from a onetime contribution made by Supervisor Doreen Farr in 2011, have never allocated money for the program, to step up to the plate. Last week, Marin submitted a proposal through the Central Coast Collaborative on Homelessness (CH). Jeff Shaffer, the group’s coordinator, said CH can work to get government eyes on the funding need, although by when remains unclear. Using the $12,000/year figure, Marin is asking that the county contribute $6,000 a year, supplemented by $3,000 from City of Santa Barbara and $1,500 each from Goleta and Carpinteria. A system to monitor who truly needs the taxi services would further reduce costs and could keep CSJ going for a while, Marin said, noting that CSJ has been in talks with the Sheriff ’s Department about such a system. Changing the release hours would be tricky, Sheriff Bill Brown said, requiring a change in how courts order releases, and it could be “complicated” to reformat the jail’s operational structure.“There are a lot of moving parts to this,” he added. “It’s trying to make sure we don’t create more of a problem than we are trying to solve.” Brown added that there isn’t any state or federal grant money that could cover such a program

and that pooling inmates’ commissary funds to pay for the program would leech money from the commissary-funded substance-abuse treatment program. But by the time the new North County jail is built — projected for 2018 — he wants to have solutions in place, Brown said. Goleta Mayor Roger Aceves said that the program is “critical” and that the City Council would “certainly consider it and see if there is funding available.” County Supervisor Salud Carbajal seconded that call for examination and said several questions need to be answered. “Is more funding the solution?” he asked. “Is it really rearranging our policy of release?” Steve Lavagnino, the county’s th District supervisor, said that taxpayers might balk at being asked to pay for released inmates’ transportation, but that the sum wasn’t exorbitant and the inmates’ safety is important. In the meantime, Salinas said the jail is in talks to partner with Lights On, an Orange County–based Catholic organization that would park an RV outside the jail several nights a week, offering releasees coffee, company, and shelter until the buses come in the morning. While he lauded the possibility of Lights On, Marin said he’s focusing his efforts on keeping the ride program afloat: “We’re the only game in town, and we need money. The rest is just pie■ in-the-sky stuff.”

Flying the Flag

OPEN SESAME: Mayor Helene Schneider officially opens the SBPD’s first drop-in center.


BY T Y L E R H AY D E N lanked by an elementary school and a corner-store hangout popular with Eastside gang members, the Franklin Neighborhood Center on Montecito Street is now home to the city police department’s freshly minted Community Policing Office. An informal drop-in center staffed by a rotating mix of officers — many of them Spanish-speaking — the space is meant to engender a sense of trust and access sometimes lost in the intimidating atmosphere of police headquarters. The one-year pilot program, explained Sgt. Riley Harwood, was hatched in partnership with the city’s Parks & Recreation Department, which offered the $10,000-a-year property for free. Its three rooms — complete with leather

couches, coffee and snacks, and artwork created by Franklin Elementary School students — have already been visited by area residents voicing concerns and asking for advice about driver’s licenses, their children, and interactions with gangs, Officer Adrian Gutierrez said. Taking pains to note the center is not a police substation — meaning no one will be booked or interviewed at the location — Harwood said if all goes well with the Eastside office, the department may look to the Westside for another space. Right now, Gutierrez is holding court at the center and making announcements about its opening on Radio Bronco. Chief Cam Sanchez said he’ll be scheduling office hours for walk-in ■ visitors, as well.

A Vote for Frank and Lesley


ity Council, by nature and definition, is a nonpartisan body that, for the most part, performs pretty mundane tasks like keeping the lights turned on, the water running, and the streets safe and clean, as well as acting as a responsible steward of the treasury. The work isn’t always particularly glamorous, but it is satisfying in that we have the opportunity to represent individuals who live and work in our community and help them with issues in their day-to-day lives. Political party, ethnicity, gender, or any other type of prejudicial divide should never drive this type of service, nor should this office be seen as a requisite or convenient stepping stone to an ambitious political career. It is ad hoc; you work for the citizens of this community, period. Our current City Council represents a broad spectrum of political affiliation and ideological diversity, yet this council passed the General Plan Update, which took many years, debates, compromises, and dollars to ratify. A few of the challengers for council seats want to reopen this process, as they are not satisfied that this plan fits their particular ideology or vision. The council, with due credit to the mayor’s ability to referee, passed this plan 7-0, hardly a partisan result. Our current public-employee contracts involved sacrifice on the part of our bargaining units, but the results reflect the times and are fair and more sustainable. The future has promise, and the trends are positive, yet budgetary caution needs to remain the watchword into the foreseeable future. Please join me and vote for Frank Hotchkiss and Lesley Wiscomb for City Council. — Randy Rowse, Councilmember, City of Santa Barbara

hile I am strongly in favor of “ObamaCare,” I also strongly feel that the system under which Californians are to enroll is a sham. I have been trying to enroll every day since the opening of registration (October 1) and have been unable to do so. I have spoken to at least six online helpers; each says that everything is working, and none understand why I’m having a problem. And no one has gotten back to me with a way of fixing it either. We all agree I am properly registered, but when I choose a plan that is being offered and try to enroll, I am told (in bright red letters) that I “can’t enroll right now, try again later.” At least we could be told the truth as to what is going on. Something is rotten in the State of California. — Paul Jacobs and Barbara Logen, Goleta

Rescind TCA Now Open letter to Michael Black, Director, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA): he Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians have applied for Fee to Trust for the Camp  property and a Tribal Land Consolidation and Acquisition Area (TCA). The BIA approved the latter in June without considering the consequences to all who live in the Santa Ynez Valley. A 19-year resident and property and business owner in the valley, I now find my property and home are included within an arbitrarily designated TCA. The Chumash, in their attempt to process fee land into trust, have designated about 11,500 acres of land as TCA to circumvent more complete scrutiny as required by federal law and to avoid environmental assessment, which is also required by the National Environmental Policy Act. This TCA has created a cloud on all the property within its boundary. No notice, to my knowledge, was given to any interested parties regarding ecology, wildlife, and habitat. Disjointed and unfettered development devoid of county, state, or federal standards or regulations is unthinkable. The loss of county and state taxes must also be considered. We, the affected people, do not believe that this process (or lack of process) by the BIA afforded any scrutiny of the impacts occurring now or in the future. I believe this was in complete error and could lead to irreparable harm cont’d p. 21 to the valley’s Land Use Plan

Christopher Marvin, drummer turned artist, dies at . Born in Los Angeles in , Christopher was the only son of actor Lee Marvin. He spent most of his life in the Cotati area where he followed his passion for music. As a Grammy Award winning drummer, he collaborated with over  bands before moving to Santa Barbara in . His love of the Pacific Ocean and his dogs led him to his creation of beach glass

After his first heart attack in September, , my father told us often “I’ve had a good life.” Roy’s unflinching acceptance of

what lay before him during a year of few ups and mostly downs, his matter-of-factease made his quick, and mostly painless departure easier on those of us who love him. It seems now a final, gracious act from a man who always prided himself on manners and comportment. Born a ‘southern gentleman’ in Dawson Creek, Kentucky, on November , , the second child to Nora Lee Shepard and Roy Newman Campbell, Roy Ardel Campbell spent his childhood in Hopkinsville. He was then known as ‘Buck,’ while big sister (by two years) Emma Loudean Campbell, went by ‘Beanie’ her whole life. The economic hardships of the Great Depression forced father Roy Campbell, a teacher by trade, to leave his young family for almost two years in the early s for menial employment in Colorado. The family reunited in  and stayed in Kentucky until , when dire economic circumstance again forced a move by the whole family to Detroit, then a thriving manufacturing region. Young Roy was a restless kid who found no benefit to school, at one point dropping out and hanging as a ‘Barracuda,’ as his Hot

Rod gang called themselves. Roy enlisted in  in newly named military branch, the United States Air Force (formerly part of the U.S. Army, and called the United States Army Air Forces). It was a transformative experience for my dad -- he said the service “straightened me out” -- and Roy ran our household with a military precision and order; established wake up times, bedtimes, proper table manners, military corners on the crisply made-up beds. I remember a two year period during the tumult of the Viet Nam war I was obliged to address my dad as ‘Sir,’ perhaps an attempt to drill some sense into me. Although Roy’s branch of the service took to the air, his primary enlisted duty was as a swimming instructor / life guard – a ‘paddlefoot’ -- teaching pilots water safety. This cushy position kept him tanned and fit during his six years at Texas air bases in Lackland, Sheppard, and Laughlin. Observing “she was the prettiest one in the steno-pool,” Roy promptly married Madeline Grace Williams in . Until her death in , I don’t think Roy and Madeline spent more than three or four days apart. Staff Sergeant Campbell left the service in , and son Randy was born the same year; daughter Sande arrived three years later. In the ethnic, working class neighborhoods of Detroit, brand and job loyalty had been handed down for generations. Roy spent a couple years on the floor in manufacturing at Dodge-Chrysler, but had higher aspirations. Roy left a “good job” and moved to General Motors, where he stayed a happy Man in the Grey Flannel Suit for the next -some years. In , GM sent a wave of folks, the Campbell family included, to Goleta,

California, to work at the (now vanished) Defense Research Facility. Projects of which my father was a proud team member (as a buyer and purchasing agent) include the Lunar Landing Module for the Apollo program, the “Fastest Gun in the West” an antecedent to the modern day particle colliders, and the Swan, a marine research vessel based in the Santa Barbara Harbor, of the same build and capacity as Jacques Cousteau’s famous Calypso. After the kids were grown gone, Roy and Madeline took full advantage of traveling the world via her part-time job as a travel agent. They loved the ease and comfort of cruise ships -- all the more handy as first my mother, then father, became dependent on wheel chairs – and took dozens of trips to Hawaii, Central America, and most of Europe. As the years and failing health slowed Roy and Madeline down, they were fortunate to receive care and comfort from their daughter Sande, who spent most of the past  years assisting her parents. Sande’s stepson Beau Justin Hobbs also spent a bit less than two years aiding both Roy and Madeline. In this last difficult year, Roy’s grandson Eddie Ardell Hobbs has been an invaluable aide and companion to Roy and Sande, as they faced continuing health challenges. Roy also enjoyed his every Sunday visits (and martinis) from long time friends Dan and Kathy Massara. Roy Ardell Campbell was pre-deceased by his mother Nora, father Roy, sister Loudean. He is survived by grandsons Eddie, Beau Justin, and Shenandoah Hobbs, granddaughters Nora and Emma Campbell, daughter-in-law Jan Campbell, son Randy, and daughter Sande. No services are planned.

Less Drive-In, More Walk/Bike


t the Goleta Planning Commission meeting October 14, the most frequent objection to McDonald’s new drive-in was the effect it would have on Hollister/ Storke traffic. We should support better walking and biking at that entry to the Camino Real Marketplace; walking into McDonald’s and having a personal encounter with the staff is a healthier alternative to sitting in a car. There are nearby alternatives for drive-in service for those who need or want such service. In the TED talk “The Walkable City,” Jeff Speck presents persuasively on the mess we have gotten ourselves into by designing cities and suburbs dependent on automobile transportation. As Goleta works to improve the walk-ability and bikeability of Old Town, it should do the same for the Marketplace and the shopping center across the street. And a bike/walk bridge over the  is needed, if funding could be found, not another McDonald’s drive-in. — Linda Hill, Goleta

Oil a Bust


anta Maria Energy (SME) has promised 100 highpaying local jobs and $3 million in county tax revenue if its proposal to drill 100 new wells in Santa Maria using cyclic steam extraction is approved. But if oil drilling is so good at generating jobs and tax revenues, why is it that Kern County, which produces more oil than anywhere in California, is one of the poorest counties in the state? Houses in Kern County are worth $100,000 less on

average than houses in Santa Maria, and tax revenues are lower per person than in Santa Barbara County. Kern has a 24 percent higher unemployment rate than the California average, and it ranks 49th lowest out of 58 counties in the state in per capita income. Also, at least partly due to pollution caused by the oil drilling, one in five Kern County youngsters has asthma. Additionally, Kern County has three times the rate of asthma hospitalizations as Santa Barbara County. Oil counties are often poor because when oil companies are done degrading the land, property values decline, which reduces tax revenues. Also, the “new jobs” are for engineers and computer experts who come in from other states or countries. The fracking industry promised jobs in Pennsylvania, and where the “fracking boom” occurred, employment rates did not rise — they fell or only rose negligibly. The SME project would not bring prosperity; it would bring poverty. County supervisors: Reject it entirely. — Max Golding, S.B.

his year’s race for the Santa Barbara City

Council is all about the number four. It is a contest between the council’s rival camps to secure a solid four-vote majority for the next two years. Currently, four of the seven councilmembers are registered Democrats (although that body is technically nonpartisan), which gives the council a slightly left-leaning tilt. In this year’s election, three seats are up for grabs, and 10 candidates are running. Two council incumbents are seeking reelection: Harwood “Bendy” White, a moderate liberal, and Frank Hotchkiss, a dedicated conservative. The third seat is currently held by Grant House, an outspoken liberal, who cannot run again according to the term-limit rules. (The conventional wisdom holds that incumbents are all but impossible to unseat, though, historically, that has not always been borne out.) This leaves the eight remaining candidates vying for that seat. And that poses the distinct possibility of a directional shift. Or not. It all depends. In many ways, this year’s race is a mess. Even with a scorecard, it’s hard to determine who’s who and what’s what. Of the 10 council candidates, four are registered Democrats, five are decline-to-state candidates (a significant jump from previous years), and only one — Hotchkiss — is registered Republican. And while all the candidates raise pretty much all the same issues — aggressive panhandlers, gang violence, economic sustainability, affordable housing, residential density, and traffic — they differ significantly in emphasis and approach. Should City Hall hire more cops to deal with the homeless or try something else? Is the proposed gang injunction necessary? Are new revenue sources needed? And will new zoning rules that allow greater residential density make a dent in housing affordability or destroy Santa Barbara’s historic charm and architectural character? As a general rule,“liberals” support increased housing densities as a tool to increase affordable-housing opportunities, for both rental units and for-sale units. Conservatives tend to believe such efforts can work only for rental housing but will otherwise undermine neighborhood character. Liberals tend to push harder for transportation alternatives; conservatives are more wed to the inevitability and necessity of the automobile. Conservatives tend to argue more cops are needed; liberals counter more services should be provided and less punitive approaches taken. Liberals contend that City Hall needs new revenue streams; conservatives, that we should make do with what we have. What follows is an attempt to help make some sense of this all-important race, where only a handful of votes could make all the difference.


There have been far more candidates’ forums than usual this year but conspicuously fewer people showed up. Increasingly, candidates have been forced to take to the airwaves to get the word out, which makes running for office that much more expensive a proposition. Maybe the Youth Council forum (pictured) offers a new direction; by offering free pizza and snacks — not to mention extra school credit — it drew 140 high school kids, by far the biggest turnout this year.



Frank Hotchkiss — booming, succinct, and direct — is one of two Republicans on the council (the other being Dale Francisco). He has been outspoken against many environmental issues such as climate change, alternative transportation, and plastic bags. A practicing Buddhist and real-estate agent, Hotchkiss speaks in bold blacks and whites, assiduously avoiding the pitfalls of wonky detail. By contrast, Councilmember Bendy White — a Democrat by party affiliation and a moderate by temperament — is so sensitive to the nuance of an issue that he sometimes sounds as if he’s arguing with himself when soliloquizing from the dais. White is an avid “smartgrowther,” pushing hard for the increased residential densities and relaxed parking requirements — in hopes of promoting what’s known as small affordable housing, housing that Hotchkiss insists will create nothing but congestion and other nightmares of big-city blight.

City Council Election FOR DUMMIES

over the general plan, White played a key behind-the-scenes role negotiating a compromise just bearable to both sides to garner the five-vote supermajority needed to pass. Both White and Hotchkiss, it turns out, have been budget hawks when it’s come to employee pensions, and both were willing to go to the mat with the politically influential Police Officers Association (POA) over increased employee contributions. Four years ago, the POA endorsed Hotchkiss and not White; this time around, the union did just the opposite. Even if White wasn’t on their side, the union explained, at least he’d meet with them. Hotchkiss, they complained, was not accessible. Public safety is the impact point where law and order and fiscal restraint collide. And it illuminates how differently the two incumbents operate. Both agree that the number of homeless people congregating throughout downtown is a problem. White sees the issue more as a manifestation of the world economy and its recent collapse and the ever-shredding safety net; Hotchkiss sees it more as a case of people behaving badly. Where White sees a need to offer more help — while insisting City Hall is already doing far more than its fair share — Hotchkiss argues Santa Barbara is literally killing the homeless with compassion and that city police need to show “stiffer spine” in going after aggressive panhandlers. Hotchkiss argues that City Hall needs to expand the size of the police force by five or six more cops, in addition to the four additional positions recently approved. White notes that each additional cop costs the city $150,000 a year in salary and benefits and adds to the burden of Santa Barbara’s underfunded retirement system. Instead, he supports an incremental expansion of the city’s “restorative policing effort”— which relies on non-sworn, hourly civilian outreach workers supervised by three police officers. On the proposed gang injunction, White has been a supporter but acknowledged the lack of public input on the matter has caused alienation within certain sectors of the political community. Hotchkiss has no second thoughts and staunchly defends the injunction, arguing that to back off now would be to “abandon” the lower Eastside and Westside to gang violence. As Hotchkiss sees his job, it’s to set general policy and not sweat the details. And as general policy, he’s against new taxes. He believes City Hall must make do with what it has, pointing out the new efficiencies city administrators were forced to discover by the recession when they cut 81 positions — and $8 million — from the budget. By contrast, White worries about the city’s grossly underfunded infrastructure, the seismically

loggerheads with Caltrans over key details of this plan, Hart’s employment has given rise to allegations of conflict of interest from opposing candidates on both sides of the aisle. Hart has said he’d seek guidance from the state’s Fair Political Practices Commission but that he would not unilaterally recuse himself from such deliberations. Hart has argued that the city’s bargaining posture is self-destructive and that City Hall could achieve more by working cooperatively. In terms of dollars and endorsements, the next most serious contender is David Landecker. He served on the council for less than two years 22 years ago, when he was forced to


GREGG HART, DAVID LANDECKER, AND MEGAN DIAZ ALLEY Gregg Hart, the first Democrat to throw his hat in the ring, has already served two terms on city council — 1995-2003 — and prior to that on the city’s planning commission and on the California Coastal Commission, all of which gives him a serious leg up when it comes to actual experience. The 53-year-old Hart has been known as a moderate Democrat and a skillful player. Although he never got along well with slow-growthers and preservationists, Hart pushed hard for Measure B, which secured for the city — via bed-tax revenues — $2 million a year to keep the city’s creeks and waterfront clean. This time around, Hart has been a more progressive candidate. He’s frustrated by the way the council’s conservative faction limited affordable-housing opportunities in the general plan, terming the document “emasculated.” The new plan, he charged, doesn’t go nearly far enough, and he vowed to reopen that process if elected.“I’m on the side of trying to do more for people who need help,” he declared. Hart grew up in Santa Barbara, the son of the city’s library director, and he remembers a time when middle-class families could find an economic toehold here. He takes exception to those who argue that increased densities will destroy Santa Barbara’s character. Many such developments have been built over the years without drawing much notice at all, he believes. Today Hart works for the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments as public information officer and is working to win approval for Caltrans’s freeway-widening and HOV-lane plan. Given that City Hall is now at serious CONT’D

unsafe police headquarters that will cost at least $50 million to fix or replace, and the network of pipes that hold the city together. In the meantime, White takes satisfaction bird-dogging pet projects that have yet to take flight, like the methane cogeneration electrical plant designed to convert the nutrient-rich fumes generated by the city’s sewage-treatment plant into electricity. And, as he points out to all the slow-growth preservationists angry about his smart-growth agenda, White takes pride in the fact that the new general plan effectively reduces the maximum building height from 60 feet to 45 feet except in exceptional circumstances.“We got something Santa Barbara scale,” he said. When Southern California Edison quietly notified City Hall it would no longer provide the massive Christmas tree traditionally planted by the Arlington Theatre, Hotchkiss quietly notified Santa Barbara’s media. In the ensuing hullabaloo, SoCal Edison saw fit to change its mind. Likewise, Hotchkiss takes credit for promoting the cruise ships now stopping in Santa Barbara 22 times a year. Yes, Mexico’s bloody drug wars hurt that country’s tourist trade, but Hotchkiss made it clear he thought Santa Barbara should roll out the welcome mats for the big ships. Likewise, Hotchkiss takes credit for Cabrillo Boulevard no longer being a place where homeless people in their RVs can camp with impunity. It’s true City Hall was already pushing in that direction, but it’s easy to get distracted.“We just kept the pressure on,” he said.

resign after he got caught switching price tags at Home Improvement Center. Since then, Landecker put in serious time in the nonprofit world, running the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics and later the Environmental Defense Center, where his chief function was fundraising. Through it, Landecker remained up to his eyeballs in local politics. “It’s where you can actually make a difference,” he said.“It’s not abstract or remote.” To the extent Landecker has an agenda he’s passionate about, it’s to maximize the amount of rental housing that gets developed and to ensure that what’s on the ground now is not converted to condos. “Most people just don’t have the $100,000 needed to make a down payment in this town,” he said. Like Hart, Landecker faulted the current council for embracing the proposed gang injunction without vetting it first. This, he said, strained relations with a community that’s already alienated from government, and the benefits — in crime prevention — could be achieved by means that already exist.“It just wasn’t worth it,” he said. Among the challenges Landecker has to overcome is his personality. Even friends and admirers say he can be brash and needlessly step on toes.“I know there’s something about my voice and countenance that comes across as arrogant,” Landecker conceded.“But sometimes, it’s not really there. I’m not a hard guy to work with; I just want to see results.” Of all the Dems, Megan Diaz Alley is the most outspokenly populist progressive in the pack. At age 34, she represents the activist enthusiasm of the Community Environmental Council (CEC) — where she worked for three and a half years — and the Environmental Defense Center, where her husband currently works. But Diaz Alley is also hoping to represent Santa Bar-

bara’s renters, Latinos, and young families struggling to economically survive, whom she refers to as the “underserved and underrepresented.” She’s served just one year on the Parks & Recreation Commission, and at candidates’ forums, she speaks haltingly and has yet to find her stride. But knocking on the doors of prospective voters, Diaz Alley comes across direct, clear, and confident. Diaz Alley grew up in Crown Point, Indiana, the only child of second- and third-generation immigrants from Mexico. She studied journalism and worked a gig doing TV news in the Midwest before moving to Los Angeles to work for Warner Brothers on several TV shows. In 2008, she moved to Lompoc to work for the wild-horse recovery program Return to Freedom. She then landed a job with the CEC doing outreach and education. Until she moved to the Eastside six years ago, she commuted by bus from Lompoc to Santa Barbara. She rides her bike to work and, with her husband, has two dogs. While with the CEC, Diaz Alley testified in front of the City Council on behalf of a plastic-bag ban — just passed — bike lanes, and going “Fossil Free by ’.” She worked on a campaign to stop Venoco’s slant-drilling plans in Carpinteria and to secure the urban-limit line — beyond which development could take place only with the voters’ consent — in Buellton and Goleta. Two years ago, the CEC hit hard times, and Diaz Alley got laid off. Incidentally, the day she found out, she bumped into Mayor Helene Schneider, who — asking about her plans — suggested she consider a run for council. (The mayor, however, has not endorsed her in this election.) In Santa Barbara’s everperseverating dialectic about growth and development, Diaz Alley says she would be a strong voice for working families.“We have a real identity crisis in this city,” she said.“Are we going to allow some growth and opportunity or are we going to shut the door in the name of preservation?”

do battle against slow-growthers — could Lesley Wiscomb, a former-WallStreet-trader-turned-landscapearchitect, be considered a “conservative.” In fact, prominent local Democrats expressed interest early on in backing Wiscomb — chair of the Parks & Recreation Commission — but backed off when she disclosed she was not a registered member of their party. Wiscomb described herself as a lifelong decline-to-state and is guarded about divulging details about her political inclinations. Born in Minnesota, Wiscomb grew up in Boston, the daughter of an insurance company executive. After college, she began work on Wall Street for 17 years, first as a corporate bond analyst and then as a trader. There were no women “on the deck” at that time, and Wiscomb credits a supportive boss for easing her way. She would mentor other women who came after. In 1990, Wiscomb switched gears, earning a degree in landscape architecture. Five years ago she and her husband, Scott Wiscomb, moved permanently to Santa Barbara, building a new home on the Mesa. Since then, she’s quietly jumped into Santa Barbara civic life feetfirst, serving on the board of Santa Barbara Beautiful and as chair of the Master Gardeners of S.B. County, as well as becoming chair of the Parks & Rec Commission, where she earned high marks as a hardworking, apolitical problem solver. Wiscomb got into the race after planning commissioner and former mayor Sheila Lodge twisted her arm. Lodge, once a bastion of the Santa Barbara liberal slowgrowth community, joined forces about five years ago with conservative councilmember Dale Francisco and his political mentor and collaborator Jim Westby, a retired General Motors executive, and all three are strongly backing Wiscomb’s bid.

she said. She’s willing to see how the experimental program included in the new general plan plays out. She noted that the Cottage Hospital workforce-housing development near St. Francis Hospital turned out far better than she — and many of the neighbors concerned about density — had thought it would.“Is that too dense for me?” she asked. “As a designer, probably.” Jason Nelson is a self-described “American Patriot” who served in Afghanistan with the Army Reserve for the better part of 10 months. Nelson figures if he could sit down and talk turkey with the tribal warlords of Afghanistan, then certainly he can do the same in Santa Barbara. Endowed with boundless energy and a playful sense of humor, Nelson set out to knock on at least 10,000 doors before all the ballots are cast. What he’s heard along the way has confirmed his own feelings that something needs to be done about homeless vagrants. For starters, Nelson says Santa Barbara needs more cops. A lot more. At a press conference held when the Police Officers Association announced their endorsement, Nelson said 20 additional sworn officers were needed. Later, he explained he asked for 20 in hopes of getting 10. If cops cost $150,000 a year, either number would constitute a big chunk of change. That money, he said, could be obtained by cutting redundancies and middle management. He does not support asking the voters to approve more taxes. That the council considered hiring a polling firm to explore the matter, he derided as “laziness and a lack of executive leadership.” He claimed a survey that he conducted informally indicated that 70 percent of the respondents opposed any such increase. Nelson has been outspoken in his criticism of Santa Barbara Police Chief Cam Sanchez, expressing dismay that he was not held accountable when a mid-level manager was caught embezzling more than $600,000. Likewise, he argued that the emergency communication center should not be moved into the Granada Garage, as is planned, but that the city could save money by contracting out such dispatch services with the County of Santa Barbara. (Police spokesperson Riley Harwood suggested that such a transfer might entail a significant loss in service levels for a vital function and would probably not save much money.) On another police matter, Nelson said he opposed the proposed gang injunction on “constitutional grounds.” After his service, he moved around the country a bit and then settled in Santa Barbara in 2004 to be close to his older brother. He worked at the Four Seasons and Trader Joe’s and took classes at S.B. City College. He was a volunteer intern with KZSB Radio general manager Les Carroll and, while at the station, met former Chamber of Commerce director Steve Cushman, who had a weekly radio show. When Cushman ran for mayor four years ago, Nelson joined the campaign as a coordinator. He had no prior experience. Cush-

man lost after being savaged as a communist by the Texas billionaire then bankrolling Dale Francisco’s campaign. The attack has soured Nelson’s feelings about Francisco’s political advisor Jim Westby. Nelson said he was approached by Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss — also backed by Westby — to bow out. He declined to do so. Although much of Nelson’s support comes from the conservative end of the political spectrum, Nelson said,“I don’t believe my policies are liberal or conservative. How is public safety liberal or conservative?”


By all reckoning, Michael Jordan ought to be a shoo-in. Not only does he have great name recognition — okay, he’s not the guy who runs Santa Barbara’s most famous basketball camp — but he’s currently the chair of the city Planning Commission. For years, that was the surefire path to the City Council. But Jordan is an engaging contrarian who defies any categorization. Jordan looks at recent city councils, and he sees “mature retired people” or “very young people out to save the world.” He’s decidedly neither. What he doesn’t see are people like himself: working fathers and middle-of-the-road, middle-aged homeowners with kids still at home.“I think that’s a dynamic that needs to be addressed,” he said. There’s another key difference.“I am by nature a pessimist,” he explained.“But I work really hard to make sure my predictions don’t come true.” Jordan grew up in San Pedro in the house his father built. He graduated from Cal State Chico, then he and his wife moved to Japan for 10 years, where he worked at American naval bases as a recreational director. They moved to Santa Barbara in 1993. The recession was raging, there were no rec jobs to be had, so Jordan sold insurance. Despite his affable grumpiness, Jordan was a joiner. He joined the Lodging & Restaurant Association, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Downtown Organization, where he emerged an energetic worker bee. As such, he landed a spot on the city’s Creeks Advisory Committee, formed to oversee the disposition of $2 million in bed taxes collected from tourists frequenting the city’s hotels and motels. At first, he was just looking out for the tourist dollar.“Before long, I got hit by the bug,” he recalled. The committee was just getting off the ground; Jordan was there to help define the mission. He started caring about creeks.“It’s one of the better examples of a tax being levied and used for the purposes the voters approved,” he said. Based on that experience, Jordan — another decline-to-state candidate — was

And about five years ago, he was appointed to the city’s Planning Commission. At that time, there were endless meetings about the general plan update, in which Santa Barbara’s rival factions debated growth and preservation. The Planning Commission would ultimately adopt a plan far more aggressive in terms of affordable housing and increased densities than the one approved by the City Council.“It took too long, and it cost too much,” Jordan said.“But in the end, the general plan is exactly what it should be.” The experimental program adopted by the council — increased densities in a limited area until 250 housing units are built or eight years lapse — is okay by Jordan, with one major caveat. “We have no measure of what’s success or failure,” he objected.“When we get to the end, we’ll have to have the same arguments all over again.” On the campaign trail, Jordan advocates for the creation of a third-party ombudsperson to help people get through the development review process. It makes no sense, he said, to have the same people causing the problem decide whether the complaints are valid. To meet the city’s unfunded infrastructure needs — $250 million worth — he said new revenue streams will be necessary, most likely a parcel tax capable of generating $70 million a year. For that to pass, he said, City Hall needs to persuade voters it’s spending their money wisely. But Jordan’s campaign got a slow start raising funds. He wasn’t aggressive enough pigeonholing donors. By the time the first reporting figures were disclosed, the front-

runners had collected four times what he’d generated. He’d never catch up.


MATTHEW HUNTER KRAMER AND CRUZITO HERRERA CRUZ Both of these candidates have raised so little money that they have failed to trigger campaign-finance reporting requirements and have been excluded from several candidate forums because of it. An accountant by trade and freelance social service provider, Cruzito Herrera Cruz comes across on the campaign trail as a mix between Aztec poet and jailhouse lawyer. He frequently cites city code out to the sixth decimal point and knows enough bureaucratic acronyms to induce temporary dyslexia. But his main point is that City Hall needs to do more — invest more — in its youth. (The $729,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds to 52 organizations should be increased to at least $2 million, he says.) At age 40, Cruz says he knows firsthand the inside of county jail and understands “my mom’s suffering.” He opposes the proposed gang injunction, arguing, “We can’t be policing our way out of a societal problem.” More neighborhood outreach and more social services provided are what’s needed, he believes.

MATTHEW HUNTER KRAMER: No fundraising reported.

Matthew Hunter Kramer, the son of a Top Gun naval aviator and grandson of the former owner of the Casmalia toxic waste site, said he was prompted to run after a mentally ill homeless man approached his 4-year old daughter in their front yard on two occasions within two weeks.

Interview with Author

James Cla≠ey

“I had a lot of medical issues that got in the way of my education. I always wanted to go back; schooling is very important,” said Khari Thompson while she got a head start on some English classwork at Chase Palm Park. Thompson is a student at the Schott Center and is currently working toward her high school diploma.

Melissa Stever and her daughter Alina Stever-Murray enjoy the sand and sun at East Beach after a day of playing at the park. “I love that there are so many parks and recreation areas for children; this is a blessed place,” said Stever, who lived in Santa Barbara for 14 years before moving to Mexico, where she lives now.

arpinteria writer James Claffey has a new collection of short fiction, Blood a Cold Blue. Claffey, orginally from County Westmeath, Ireland, lives on an avocado ranch with his wife, writer and artist Maureen Foley; their daughter, Maisie; and occasionally, his son, Simon. The stories in Blood a Cold Blue are very short. Talk a little about writing the short-short story. Short fiction requires a discipline and great deal of care, and it’s this focused, tightly woven writing that I try to produce. I begin with an image, or a specific memory, and let my imagination lead me to a natural conclusion. I see the writing of the short fiction story as putting together a cryptic crossword puzzle, making sure a thematic resonance exists, and that same thematic, structural resonance should be present in the short prose piece. That focus on image and imagination occasionally led me to feel I was reading a prose poem. When does a prose poem become a short-short story, and vice-versa? I’m not sure there’s a cut-and-dried answer to this, except in the case of short prose that might not necessarily contain a traditional story arc and instead has more of an elusive narrative thread. If you read Lydia Davis’s work, the Man Booker International prize committee said her work had “the brevity and precision of poetry.” That quote might create the litmus test for the prose/poetry conundrum. My wife says many of my pieces are prose poems, and I don’t disagree, but in the end I hope the writing succeeds and is what matters, not so much its categorization. There’s a kind of hard-boiled sensibility married to an avant-garde flair in these stories. Where does that come from? Chicago writer Ben Tanzer says the stories contain “rhythm


billion pounds

and rot,” and this I ascribe to growing up in Ireland. Our patterns of speech, the way we write, sing, tell stories, are infused musicality and rhythm — a fingerprint, if you will. My writing bears my Irish accent more than my reading, partly because I’ve been here for over 20 years, but the speech patterns are still there in my performances. The sense of hardboiledness you reference is a by-product of growing up o an island in economically on t tough times and in a culture w where the dark underbelly o of life is celebrated. We Irish re revel in the macabre and bruta tal aspects of life! Whenever so someone tells an awful story, I’l I’ll generally trump theirs with a worse one. So, it’s no surprise I blend b rhythmic language and su surreal imagery. Conventional wisdom has it that only novels really sell, that a collection of stories, even by a famous author, is unlikely to do much in the market. Was that a concern for you at all? Steven Elliott, creator of The Rumpus, said recently, “What I learned from Richard Hugo, which is probably different from what he was trying to teach me, and different from what I’ve always thought before: There is no reader. There should be images in every piece of writing that only the author understands. Don’t write to communicate; use the telephone instead.” I’m not a conventional writer, and I embrace my writing for what it is — now, more than ever. You write for the pleasure of writing. That’s right: not for an audience, not for an imagined reader, and my stories contain images and ideas I seed there without revealing the reason. To paraphrase bell hooks, I write to transgress, and as opposed to a few years ago when I tried to write to please workshop colleagues, professors, and prospective agents and editors, I write for writing’s sake. Blood a Cold Blue is available at area bookstores and on

Fashion by Rachel Cabakoff

Samantha Hutchinson


it h cooler temperatures creeping around the corner, it’s time to start pulling out those wooly coats — or, in our case, light jackets. To help with what to wear during Santa Barbara’s mild winters, fashion and lifestyle connoisseur Samantha Hutchinson has some great tips on her blog Could I Have That? ( Hutchinson fell into the fashion blogging arena in 2009. After studying art history and humanities at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, she returned to Santa Barbara and started Could I Have That? The project began as a virtual diary — a place where Hutchinson could write about what she loved at the moment. However, once she began receiving feedback from her posts, she started developing an editorial calendar and working with clothing brands. From there, Could I Have That? grew into a full-fledged blog about anything and everything — from fashion to lifestyle to beauty and more — all managed by Hutchinson from her abode. Gaining most of her inspiration from various websites, such as Pinterest and street-style blogs, Hutchinson also finds ideas from her life — whether she’s traveling, exploring Santa Barbara, or entertaining her friends at her house. Some key pieces Hutchinson saw frequenting the runways of New York Fashion Week and making an appearance in the L.A. fashion scene are hints of red, funky sneakers with leopard prints, cowboy-esque boots, mock turtlenecks, and masculine-inspired pieces. “It’s kind of tough [for Santa Barbara] when we don’t have seasons, but I would say definitely shades of green … Whites are even big this season,” Hutchinson said.“A really good blazer is always good to have in this town, and then a good sort of oversize cashmere wrap that you could put around almost like a chunky scarf, and chunky knits are always good. Knitwear is Santa Barbara’s number one.” Hutchinson’s blog incorporates pieces from a high- to lowend price range so there is something for everyone.“It’s just all about what you love, and it’s okay if you love a necklace from Forever  and you have Chanel shoes,” she said.“I think that’s kind of the era we’re living in nowadays, with fashion especially — mixing the high and low — formulating your own personal style and finding things that you love and making it work.” The fact that Hutchinson’s hobby turned into a career is something she never expected.“I think what I love most is the fact that I get to live in Santa Barbara and have this kind of relaxed lifestyle, but then still have a hand in the fashion industry, which really, five years ago, you couldn’t be a part of it unless you were in New York or L.A.,” Hutchinson said. Hutchinson recommends checking out the following shops:


What’s In for the Autumn/Winter Season in S.B.— and the Nation

, rs, RS S R e E E y Y Y A A a L L L

According to au courant fashion magazines, websites, and the latest ready-to-wear fabrics and styles seen on the runways of New York, Milan, Paris, and L.A., the autumn/ winter trends include layering, prints, and bold color. Here is a list of what’s hot for this cool season.

Hats: Anything and everything from fedoras to baseball caps to knitted hats — especially beanies — are all up for grabs.

Prints: Leopard, plaid, and pinstripe patterns abound, giving those daring enough the chance to bring those styles out again. Menswear-inspired prints also make the cut with houndstooth and herringbone patterns.

Colors: Color blocking was a popular trend on this year’s runway, all while incorporating style such as militaryinspired greens with maroon, navy, and white. Reds are also a must-have for this season, whether it’s a bold blazer or a pair of heels. Shoes: The mid-bootie (pictured above) is the go-to option, from one outfit to the next, during the cooler months.

Sweaters: Turtlenecks. (Did I really just write turtleneck?) Whether we like it or not, they are making their return yet again, but this time with a sophisticated edge. So give it a shot. Otherwise, the classic knits and comfy, warm sweaters are the way to go; pair with jeans, a cute scarf, or some chunky jewelry, and there you go. For more information on this year’s fashion dos and don’ts, visit: • Kakoon, 116 E. Yanonali St., 698-7569, • • Dressed & Ready, 1253 Coast Village Rd., 565-1253, • • Jenni Kayne, 525 San Ysidro Rd., Montecito, 309-0550, • • Chapala & Parker, 350 Chapala St., 962-1115, • • Lovebird Boutique & Jewelry Bar, 7 E. De la Guerra St., 568-3800; • 535 State St., 560-8800;



Last month, Montecito welcomed L.A.-based designer Jenni Kayne with the opening of her new store just in time for fall. Although her designs can be a tad pricey, her collection features staple pieces that are laid-back yet chic — perfect for this slowly approaching cool weather. Kayne launched her line in 2003 at the age of 19, and since then, she has expanded her stores throughout the U.S. and overseas — spreading her latest fashion inspirations through clothing, shoes, and a kids and home-décor line. Inspired by the easygoing California lifestyle, the brand features high-quality garments that are simple and comfortable to wear. Be sure to take a peek at her funky patterned shoes, especially her D’Orsay flats (pictured). Kayne’s store is at 525 San Ysidro Road, Montecito.

Happy Amnesia-versary


hen it comes to celebrating wedding anniversaries, there are two distinct types of wife: the needy ones who demand hearts, flowers, and other manufactured, predictable demonstrations of affection just so they can feel appropriately, annually adulated. And there are the more evolved, laissez-faire ladies who reject clichéd notions of romance and not only prefer but even inspire frequent, spontaneous acts of tenderness from their un-put-upon partners. And I’m totally that first one. But I’m not proud of it. You see, I have a kind and generous husband who regularly, spontaneously, exuberantly fills my gas tank (absolutely not a euphemism), rubs my back, and fills my gas tank (yeah, that time was a euphemism). He’s creative and patient and funny and smart, handsome, hardworking, and pretty much perfect in every way. Except he has acute flipping amnesia about our anniversary. He’s lived through 19 of them now (only because I have lousy aim), and it’s the same every year: I wait for him to mention that it’s coming up; he doesn’t; I finally remind him; he is surprised; the day comes; he does nothing; I confess that I was hoping for some small acknowledgement of our enduring … you know … love linkage; he gulps and says he’s sorry; I huff around for several days telling myself that gas-tank skills are nothing to sniff at. But it bothers me. It does. The guy remembers to regularly change the furnace filter and clear the rain gutters. But he can’t — or is it won’t? — remember to honor the day we promised to, well, honor one another. It’s a blind spot on his brain, and apparently it’s a common affliction. “He forgot our anniversary this by Starshine year for the second year in a row,” a friend confessed about her husband. “The worst part was that when I brought it up, he’d forgotten that he email: forgot last year!” Why do we care so much? What does it matter if our hairier halves make a fuss over us on some arbitrary day of the year? It’s just that the longer you’re together, the more unnecessary grand gestures start to seem. Time — and endurance — are more compelling proof of our devotion than a Hallmark card or dinner reservation could ever be. But I want to believe that even if we don’t make opportunities to demonstrate our adoration, we’ll at least take opportunities to do so. “To me, it’s important because it’s the birthday of our marriage,” says my friend. To her husband, it’s just “a day that will result in a pissed-off wife if it’s mishandled.” And therein lies the problem: If we can’t make them care … is it really worthwhile to make them act like they care? Here’s how this goes down in my head: I don’t want him to do it purely out of obligation … then again, why does he see it as an obligation rather than a fortuitous excuse to make me dopey-grinned? … Fine, then if it’s such a big deal, why don’t I shower him with hearts and flowers? … Because he sees no value in them whatsoever, and look at that: We’re right back where we started. Next year is our 20th anniversary, and I still hold out hope that he’ll take the hint — and by “hint” I mean publishing a national column that people will almost certainly cut out of their local newspapers and mail to him anonymously, and by people I mean me. I just have a feeling this is going to be the year he finally comes through with a babysitter (my mom may be free, but ask a month ahead of time), spa weekend at a fancy hotel (watch Groupon for deals), and box of dark-chocolatecovered salted caramels approximately the size of my head. Call me a dreamer.

Gridiron Glory



The Author Celebrates the Golden Anniversary of His CIF-Winning High School Football Team by John Zant layers on the Bishop Diego High football


team might be getting together in 2063, the 50thanniversary year of their current season. The exhilaration of winning a CIF championship — or the memories of games well played, win or lose — lasts a long, long time. I saw it three years ago, when a couple dozen Santa Barbara Dons gathered to reminisce about their triumph in 1960. I experienced it last weekend, when I joined 30 teammates to celebrate St. Francis High’s back-to-back championship seasons in 1963 and ’64. St. Francis, known as “the little school on the hill,” had an enrollment of 380 boys who lived in La Cañada and the surrounding foothill communities. From an early age, we aspired to play for the Golden Knights, the varsity football team coached by Jack Friedman, a legendary taskmaster. Several of his teams had fallen just short of CIF glory. In 1963, we had the talent to succeed, and we applied ourselves with a spiritual fervor, much to the delight of our Franciscan teachers. It was not easy. We had to bounce back from a loss and beat Bishop Amat for the league crown. Second-place teams did not qualify for the play-offs. Our first play-off game was postponed for a day of grieving after the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22. Victories over West Covina, Claremont, and Santa Ana Valley sent us into the Class AAA championship game against La Mirada in the L.A. Coliseum. It was the first game of a double-header — Loyola and El Rancho played for the AAAA crown — and almost 25,000 fans were in attendance. We drove the length of the field in the final quarter and won, 7-0. The 1964 team followed us with a perfect 13-0 season and another CIF title. The school welcomed us back last Friday to share our experiences with the 2013 Golden Knights. Tom Verti, a starter on both championship squads who later was a threeyear letterman at the University of Washington, summed up our feelings when he said,“The best times I ever had were right here at St. Francis.” We met the players in a shiny field house, a far cry from the dark dungeon — the remnant of an ancient country club — that served as our locker room. The school has been upgraded to serve 675 students with an array of educational programs, but there still is a lot of pride in the football teams. Fr. Tony Marti, the president of St. Francis, recently drew a 15-yard penalty CHAMPION QUARTERBACK: Coley when he berated an Candaele led the Carpinteria official on the sideWarriors to three consecutive CIF line. The next week, championships in the late 1980s. he found yellow flags all around the

campus and on his desk. Thankfully, after we spoke to the Golden Knights, they went out and defeated Cathedral, 31-21, to raise their record to 7-0. They are ranked No.  in the CIF Western Division, but they are long shots to go all the way in the play-offs. They still have to face Mission League opponents Serra and Chaminade, teams ranked No.  and No. . Bishop Diego, also 7-0, plays in the Tri-Valley League, another league of extraordinary teams. The Cardinals, top-ranked in the CIF Northwest Division, take the field against No.  Oak Park on Saturday night, October 26, at La Playa Stadium. Oak Park is coming off a victory over Nordhoff, the defending CIF champion. Carpinteria, which holds the No.  spot, travels to Ojai on Friday night to face Nordhoff. Meanwhile, the Dos Pueblos Chargers, after back-toback victories over Santa Barbara and San Marcos, are gunning for the Channel League championship. They are the league’s only ranked team — No.  in the Western Division — heading into this Friday night’s home game against Ventura. Despite the increase in divisions and play-off berths, a CIF football championship remains a cherished achievement. That’s why people remember them 50 years later. SBCC, 6-0, is one of two undefeated community college football teams in the Southland. The Vaqueros scored their latest victory on a safety in the final minutes at Antelope Valley, 18-16. CANDAELE ALWAYS BURNING: Like all great champions, Coley Candaele attributes his success to the people around

him. “I was so fortunate to play with a great group of guys, and my parents and coaches taught me well,” said Candaele, who quarterbacked the Carpinteria Warriors to three — that’s right, three — CIF titles in 1987, 1988, and 1989. He also was one of the nation’s top middle-distance runners, winning the state 1,600-meter title in 1990. He may be the best schoolboy athlete I’ve ever seen. Lompoc High’s Napoleon Kaufman was a dazzling running back and a state sprint champion, but Candaele’s quarterback-miler combination was unique. Candaele added to his legacy as Carpinteria’s football coach. In 2002, he led the Warriors to another CIF crown, capping a 14-0 season. Vista Murrieta, a new school in Riverside County, recruited him to get its athletic program off the ground. Candaele has guided its football teams into four CIF finals — winning the Inland title in 2011 — and also brought four CIF track-and-field team titles to Murrieta. Candaele will be inducted into the Carpinteria High School Athletic Hall of Fame on Friday, November 8, during halftime of the Warriors’ football game against Oak Park. He will be occupied by a Vista Murrieta game that night, but he will appear at the November 9 banquet honoring the inductees at the Carpinteria Boys & Girls Club. The last time the Hall of Fame added members was in 2010. The new class also includes former basketball stars Kevin Purcell

Barbara surfing prodigy who at age 19 is one of the world’s top 10 women competing in the professional tour, tried her feet at running last Sunday. She finished the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco in a respectable time of 1 hour and 42 minutes. Joan Benoit, the first woman to win an Olympic marathon, recognized her athleticism and suggested Peterson might become a serious runner.“I said,‘That’s an honor, but you’re crazy!’” Lakey reported — which will make her fans happy.“We need you in a bikini cuttin’ waves!” one of her Facebook followers wrote. Peterson is on a break from competition until March. That will allow her to kick back with her friends and have fun riding the winter surf at the Rincon. These are some of her favorite times, she said, after spending seven months with a surfboard and laptop in tow, traveling all over the globe and sending out Facebook messages and tweets to her thousands of followers. As exciting and spectacular as her life has been — as documented in the movie Zero to  — Peterson said it can be a grind. Besides surfing, she is active in environmental and philanthropic causes. This poised young woman will be the inspirational speaker at the 12th annual Celebration Luncheon of Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara, to be held on Thursday, November 7, at the Bacara Resort & Spa.

hank the seasons, fall is here! I know it’s a rarity in this town, but I am a fall guy. The air turning crisp; the smells of hearth and roasted hen filling the air; the short, sweet days turning into long, savory nights — fall is about slowing down and making the very best of what you have. Braises, roasts, stews, and ciders all welcome you home with a common guarantee: Someone took a very long time to show that you were missed. And no sunset or fallen leaf is as beautiful as that. It is with this inspiration that I choose the cider car as my first cheers to autumn. The cider car is my idea of a wonderful welcome home: Meyer lemon — a sweet and bright citrus — paired FALL INSPIRED: Just a whiff of the Cider Car, a spin on the traditional Sidecar, will get you in the seasonal with homemade spirit ...

Grind up a little cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, and add it to granulated sugar for a savory-sweet rim. Or do what I do, and mix a half-ounce Meyer-lemon juice with a half-ounce cider simple syrup (make your cider syrup by simmering two cups cider and one cup sugar for 20 minutes), 3 ounces applejack brandy, and two drops cider vinegar; pour into a snifter. Mix ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and sugar with hot water and pour into a coffee mug. Rest the snifter on top to warm. (A stemless wine glass and coffee cup also work.) When you lift the snifter off the coffee cup, the aromas of spiced sugar will warn your palate that it’s time to pay attention: This one’s going to be good!

orn and raised in Hawai‘i, Kimberly Goodland (yes, that is her real last name — although she says she does get called “Kimberly Goleta” from time to time), who has lived in the 805 for more than 30 years, has never quite gotten used to the weather here … or surfing with a wet suit. Fortunately, she’s figured out a most delicious — and effective — way to warm her bones: homemade chai tea, made from a recipe that she’s spent the past 20 years tweaking and perfecting and finally took to market six months ago as — what else? — Goodland Chai. For years, friends had been MY, OH MY, THAT’S GOOD CHAI: telling her the tea was so good Kimberly Goodland’s (pictured top) that she ought to sell it, but, delicious Goodland Chai is organic, Goodland said, thanks to an authentic, and guaranteed to warm you up this fall. increasing awareness of and appreciation for slow food and organic, small-batch products, there couldn’t be a better time than right now to bring her brew to the masses. And, with sweater season upon us and crispy leaves underfoot, what could possibly sound better than a warm mug of chai, awash in the spices that call to mind harvest, the holidays, a houseful of family, and a bellyful of food, all that’s wonderful and cozy about this wonderful and cozy time of year? Oh, it’s kept her up at night on more than one occasion — most notably, perhaps, the first time she made it, with a friend for a Christmas Eve party, when it turned out so well she couldn’t stop drinking it — but the hurdles of launching a business are no match for the glowing reviews her chai regularly receives. Isabella Gourmet Foods, Isla Vista Food Co-op, Santa Barbara Gift Baskets, and Goodland Kitchen have already picked up the organic mix (and it’s now the house chai at Goodland Kitchen), so you can take some home and brew up a big pot for yourself. But, Goodland said, “The best compliment of my life was at the SOL Food Festival, when four women in saris approached me, tried it, and said, ‘Thanks for keeping it authentic!’” For info, visit —Shannon Kelley

SILLY LOVE: Jack Stewart plays Pete and Kate Kadow dances the role of Kate in State Street Ballet’s Taming of the Shrew.

“She was made for this role,” Sund said, pointing out that in addition to her lively spirit, Kadow shares a first name with her character. Inspired by female movie stars like Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, and Rosalind Russell, Sund set his version of the story in midcentury America. The score features 1950s pop music and hula alongside Stravinsky and Ravel. Designer Christina A. Giannini is hard at work on costumes that will evoke the era of sock hops and soda fountains, and while Sund relies on the cast for their strong classical ballet technique, he’s also introducing elements of jazz and free-form dancing, athletic sequences, and highly demanding lifts, especially for the leads. For a production like this, the cast’s acting ability is just as important as the technical requirements — it’s a funny, irreverent play, and Sund aims to evoke laughs. For these young lovers and dance partners, Taming of the Shrew is far from a misogynistic story about the need to subdue unruly women.“I feel powerful in my role,” Kadow



rom the Cole Porter musical Kiss Me, Kate to 1999’s teen cult classic  Things I Hate About You, Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew has been remade in so many genres and set in so many eras, even those who’ve never heard of the play are familiar with its story. The farcical tale centers on the wooing of Katherine (Kate) — the hottempered “shrew” in question — by the nobleman Petruchio, who eventually “tames” Kate’s feisty nature. It’s not exactly a politically correct tale for modern audiences, which is why choreographer Robert Sund has done some adapting of his own. This Saturday, State Street Ballet (SSB) will unveil Sund’s version of the play at the Granada Theatre. For Sund, Taming of the Shrew is a comical take on the battle of the sexes and a chance for both male and female leads to flex their power. Interestingly, the dancers chosen to play the two lead roles, Kate Kadow and Jack Stewart, are a real-life couple. In rehearsal at SSB’s studios last week, they worked on the grand pas de deux at the end of the ballet, when Petruchio has finally won Kate’s affection. As Stewart supported Kadow in a slow pirouette, they gazed into each other’s eyes and smiled. Minutes later, as the duet came to an end, Kadow lost her balance and slumped awkwardly to the floor. The two burst into giggles. “I feel really comfortable dancing with Jack,” explained Kadow, for whom this production marks the first time she’ll dance the lead role in a full, two-act ballet.

Discovered via Bandcamp and quickly signed to a major label (Columbia), Cults’ debut didn’t seem to stand a chance. But then something strange happened: Cults the album worked, thanks to an earwormy blend of hooky guitars and sombersweet ’60s girl-group melodies. While sophomore effort Static doesn’t veer too far from the original formula, it also really doesn’t pack the punch of its predecessor. In its first incarnation, Cults was all about blending bummer lyrics with Madeline Follin’s upbeat, sing-songy deliveries. Here, the orchestrations stay relatively cheery, but the morose deliveries and Static-y production tricks suck the life right out of the thing. It’s a shame, too, because there’s a wellspring of goodness lurking beneath the fuzzy surface. (See late-album highlight “We’ve Got It.”) Ultimately, though, Static suffers from trying to complicate Cults beyond its simple, catchy trappings. — AC



MIKKE ‘‘NICK’ MIKE NICKK’ NNICHOLS ICHOLS TALKS LIONS, ELEPHANTS & GIANTS For most photographers, there are few grails holier than National Geographic. The 12-decade-old magazine publishes some of the most consistently striking wildlife photography on the planet, and the chance to shoot for them is, to say it simply, a game changer in the photog world. For Mike “Nick” Nichols, a longtime Nat Geo contributor and photo editor at large, the magazine has opened a world of opportunity. For one, Nichols has spent nearly 20 years observing, studying, and capturing African elephants for them. The fruits of his labors can currently be seen in Earth to Sky: Among Africa’s Elephants, A Species in Crisis, a new book that Nichols will bring to Santa Barbara this weekend as part of a talk titled Lions, Elephants & Giants: Trials, Tragedies, Triumphs. Though he spent two decades in Central Africa, Nichols said the first 15 were mostly chase. “The first 15 years I was in Africa, I only saw elephants that were afraid of me because they were shot wherever I was working.” The book, he says, comes at a crucial time, as ivory poaching is threatening to kill off the last elephants sooner than we think. “It’s not one of these cry-wolf moments that you’ll find in conservation efforts where we say something is going to go extinct,” Nichols emphasized. “There’s so much money in China right now that every elephant in Africa has a bounty on its head.” Along with the book, Sunday’s event will find Nichols discussing (and showing photos from) his two-year stint in the Serengeti with a family of lions and his recent project involving a giant California Sequoia. “We’re celebrating my career right now, so it’s kind of strange,” Nichols said. “I started off as a photojournalist not a wildlife photographer. I see what I’m doing as speaking for those who don’t have a voice.” Mike “Nick” Nichols speaks at the Marjorie Luke Theatre on Sunday, October 27, at 7 p.m. Visit for tickets. — AC

AN OFFICER AND A SOPRANO: Megan Silberstein vamps while Ben Offringa salutes in The Pirates of Penzance.

Call of Duty The Pirates of Penzance. At Westmont’s Porter Theatre on Friday, October 18. Playing through October 27. Reviewed by Charles Donelan


he operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan are ordinarily left to specialists, mostly light-opera groups who work their way through the repertoire over a period of years. While the benefits of such an “experts only” approach are apparent, it tends to inhibit experimentation and limit audience appeal to the already converted. With this new version of The Pirates of Penzance, Westmont’s John Blondell and his marvelous cast and production team have shed nearly all the weight of precedent and created something as light, bright, and pleasing as one of the many helium-filled balloons that float across the stage in Danila Korogodsky’s brilliant scenography. Mak Manson would appear to have been waiting all his performing life to play Richard, the Pirate King, and he does so with gusto and wit. As Frederic, the pirates’ apprentice, Ben Offringa brings the right touch of absurdity to his character’s dutiful responses to some truly outrageous reversals of fortune. In the crucial role of Mabel, Megan Silberstein is radiant, singing the bravura passages in a rich, clear soprano while never losing the thread of her character’s place in the plot. Paige Tautz makes a great and forceful Ruth, and Connor James Bush gets some of the night’s biggest laughs as Major General Stanley. The show’s single biggest triumph, however, has to be the wonderfully complex yet always entertaining and graceful choreography contributed by Victoria Finlayson. It’s consistently inventive, and the large cast has a ball with it, alternately prancing, marching, prowling, and parading around the theater until the audience is whipped into a properly Victorian frenzy. As the finale has it, “with all their faults, they love their Queen.” ■

merican playwright William Inge’s pen was sharp and heart searching when he snowbound eight Americans in a small-town Midwest café in the middle of the night. What better no-place and nether-time to strip away the defenses that disguise conflicts within every American. Great casting and smart technical support make Bus Stop a winning season-opening production for the SBCC Theatre Group. A 1950s café with actual falling snow by scenic designer Patricia L. Frank and a surround-sound blizzard with mournful harmonica accents by sound designer Ben Crop magically persuade us that yes, Toto, I’ve a feeling we are in Kansas. The most complex and volatile relationship is between a young rodeo cowboy (Pacomio Sun) and the pretty saloon singer (Shannon Sullivan) that he has strong-armed onto the bus, to force her into marriage back home in Montana. Surprisingly, this is Sun’s first leading role onstage, turning out a naïve and conflicted cowboy that seems to have materialized inexplicably from the iconic film Oklahoma! The overall narrative arc depends decisively on the magnetism between these two, and Sun and Sullivan navigate the shifting polarities well. Chelsea Carpenter is absolutely winning as the bookish high school waitress. Bernard Webber as the former philosophy professor seems to capture Inge’s own existential crises regarding the value of knowledge and the authenticity of love. Leslie Gangl Howe and Robert Demetriou play marriage-bored midlifers wandering into the gray world of what-ifs. Sid Zagri, as the sheriff, must lay down the law against a boy who represents his own unredeemed past, while Raymond Wallenthin excels as the drifting ranch hand, at once the kindest and most lonely figure in this detour from belonging. ■

NEW STEPS: Silk Road’s Cristina Pato plays the gaita, and Colin Jacobsen joins on violin.

Silk Road Ensemble Plays for Whole Planet by Charles Donelan


o just forget about Yo-Yo Ma for a moment, and imagine a new kind of musical ensemble: smaller than an orchestra but bigger than a rock band and kitted out with the soul of a string quartet, the rhythm section of a jazz band, and a few more-familiar-sounding but hard-to-place exotic instruments. Now add 11 of the most happening, up-to-the-minute players in the known world and a constantly evolving repertoire of brilliant, genredefying new music, and you are beginning to get close to what the Silk Road Ensemble has to offer. Okay, now add Yo-Yo Ma back in — not as a player for this particular performance but as the original musical mentor, practical patron, and spiritual leader of the project. Good, now you’re nearly ready for what’s coming to UCSB’s Campbell Hall on October 24. The current edition of the Silk Road Ensemble has a new CD, A Playlist Without Borders, and a new DVD, The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma: Live From Tanglewood, both released just last month by Sony Masterworks. They also have the momentum of a project that has exceeded some very high expectations. Like a musical big bang, the Silk Road Project has spun off multiple other outstanding ensembles, including several headquartered in Brooklyn. In the last decade, it has become the musical shot heard literally around the world. How did this happen? I spoke last week with violist Nicholas Cords, who has performed with the Silk Road Ensemble almost from the beginning. He talked about the group and the music, as well as the impact of the project on the contemporary music scene.



So you will be appearing without Yo-Yo Ma this time but with a great and interesting group of players. Why is that? Short answer: Yo-Yo has a lot to do. Longer answer: He wants to share responsibility with the group, and his approach as a leader is emblematic of that. Everybody in the Ensemble is capable of carrying the torch, but greatness comes in the letting go. You are in a couple of groups, including Brooklyn Rider and The Knights, which spawned out of the Silk Road Project. What can you say about the way that Silk Road has influenced the music scene? It has been a fantastic incubator, and I think that’s because of the layers of history embedded in great music. We came together for the Silk Road Project in the spirit of mutual education and with goals of sharing and communicating what we knew with other great musicians who knew different stuff. And once we got that process going, the question became, what can a musician do to create something that is good for society? Because that’s not just Yo-Yo Ma’s thing; it’s what we are all trying to do. Like Cristina Pato, who has a new jazz release on her own and who runs a great music festival in Galicia, Spain. Or look at [cellist] Mike Block, who has spun out a kind of empire of the alternative for himself. We have come up with a different kind of engine with this organization, and we’ve redefined what an artist can do. There’s no longer one answer to that question. How did your 2004 trip to Iran influence what you are doing? The trip to Iran was really the turning point, especially for Colin [Jacobsen, of Brooklyn Rider and The Knights]. He had never really written original music before that, but he saw in Kayhan [Kalhor] a model of the performer/composer that he could relate to. We began referring to ourselves as “the brotherhood of strings.” In Santa Barbara, we’ll be playing a piece he wrote about our visit there, “Atashgah,” which is about a Zoroastrian fire temple that’s more than 2,000 years old.

RAZZLE-DAZZLE: Ira Glass joined forces with Monica Bill Barnes (right) and Anna Bass for a beguiling blend of radio and dance.

Pure Magic One Radio Host, Two Dancers, presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures. At the Granada Theatre, Saturday, October 19. Reviewed by Elizabeth Schwyzer


s the host of NPR’s This American Life, Ira Glass is accustomed to exposure — at least of a certain kind. Yet as interviewer, compiler, and narrator of the program’s stories, Glass is a master of drawing the humor and pathos from others’ lives while avoiding the spotlight himself. In his current collaboration with modern dance duo Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass, Glass is more visible. It’s not just the fact that he appears live on stage, or the fact that he actually dances (and he does, and it’s gloriously goofy). The real excitement is in personal revelations: He performed magic shows as a kid; his wife sometimes accuses him of behaving like Mr. Spock. There are many reasons this show works so beautifully. After 10 years of collaboration, Barnes and Bass are masters of evoking character and emotion through dance, plastic facial expressions, physical comedy, and subtle body language — all silent art forms. Glass, of course, is a consummate deejay of the spoken word, mixing narration, quotation, music, and sound effects into stories. Together, these three produce a perfect — and perfectly unexpected — union. As might be expected, Glass organizes the

evening into three acts, basing himself at a lectern and using a tablet to bring in sound clips (he even precedes each tap of the screen with an overhead flourish — a nod to his magic days). Sometimes, he speaks as the dancers dance; sometimes he gives the stage over to them. In one memorable segment, Glass recounts consulting with a lawyer over whether he could air this sound bite from writer David Rakoff: “You can suck a mile of cock; it does not make you Oscar Wilde. I know; I’ve tried.”As if in response, Barnes and Bass come out in prim cable-knit sweaters and plaid skirts, then engage in sexually charged exchanges with an invisible conversant, backed by James Brown’s “Sex Machine.” At the heart of the show are reflections on love and the nature of partnership — that curious blend of affection, competition, desire, and loss. As poet Donald Hall reads poems written about his wife’s death, Barnes and Bass stand in trench coats on a tabletop, shuffling forward and back in a slow, lonely standoff. Out of this unexpected union of dance and radio comes a show that, like the work of its collaborators, blends moments of delight and hilarity with glimpses of the soft underbelly of human experience. It’s magic.

Dance as Recreation Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures. At the Granada Theatre, Wednesday, October 16. Reviewed by Elizabeth Schwyzer


hen children swing on the monkey bars, we call it “play.” When a pianist makes music, we use the same word. And when Bill T. Jones stages a dance, it’s a highly refined form of the very same thing. On Wednesday night, October 16, at the Granada, UCSB Arts & Lectures presented the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in Play and Play, an evening of dance set to live music. Across three works spanning 1977-2000, two qualities remained consistent: a playful spirit and a sense of freshness. The program opened with the newest work, “Spent Days Out Yonder,” set to the sprightly andante movement of a Mozart string quartet. Accompanied by the Los Angeles–based Calder Quartet, dancers in flowing pants moved across the stage in loose processions, alternating between suggestions of laxness (wobbly knees, flopping arms) and moments of sublime, controlled fluidity. In the arresting final passage, all nine dancers formed a tableau, shifting slowly off stage as the strings drew out one last, soaring note. “Continuous Replay” began with a burst of strings and movement: Stark naked, Erick Montes Chavero exploded onstage, leapt about

wildly, and disappeared just as fast. Eventually, he reemerged and began a series of minimal gestures: a turn of the head, the lifting of a fist, a wide-armed lunge. Over time, the structure of dance emerged — a steady accumulation of gestures, dancers, costumes, and sounds. In its original incarnation as “Hand Dance,” this was a solo for Zane, who was fascinated by the minimalist dance experiments of the early 1970s. In its current manifestation, it’s a masterpiece of theme and variation. Set to a Mendelssohn octet, “D-Man in the Waters” is the most exuberant, celebratory work on this program and a showcase for the company’s remarkable athleticism. Dedicated to the memory of a company dancer who battled AIDS, the work is a rousing affirmation of the power of community. Army fatigues suggest a battle, but the dancers belie that theme as they spring joyously into each other’s arms and join in happy communal gestures, including a tummy slide across the stage. Despite its darker passages — or maybe because of them — it’s in “D-Man” that the “play” reaches its pinnacle. How else can one respond to death, Jones seems to be asking, than with life, in all its ecstasy? ocTobEr 24, 2013

FUTURE’S SO BRIGHT Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos Reflects on Gossamer by Aly Comingore


t’s been a wild year and a half for Passion Pit. In July 2012, the band returned to the fold with Gossamer, the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s breakout hit Manners. Like its predecessor, the album was filled with sweeping, hyper-electronic rock ballads and ecstatic synths. The arrangements were sparkly and bold but juxtaposed with pained lyrics about troubled families, troubled loves, and troubled pasts. It didn’t take long for critics to herald Gossamer, both for its production and its subject matter. Popular radio and Billboard chart topping followed soon after. But as stories of the record’s lengthy making began to surface, so too did the tales of frontman Michael Angelakos’s ongoing struggles, which included grappling with a debilitating bipolar disorder and suicidal thoughts. In the many months since, Angelakos has sought treatment, returned to touring, and, eventually, married the fiancée for whom Gossamer was penned. “She’s one of these humans that deserves to be written about in a really wonderful way,” Angelakos told Interview last year. “I just hope that I did that and her justice.” He’s also become a vocal advocate for the open discussion of mental-health issues.“I’ve kept so much inside that I’ve literally lost it,” he told Pitchfork. “I wish more people would get help when they feel like they need it — and not just to look to medicine, but to the support of others.” This Saturday, Passion Pit headlines a show at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The concert is one of the last stops on the band’s nearly two-year tour in support of Gossamer. It also marks their first stop in town since 2010. I recently chatted with Angelakos about wrapping things up, what comes next, and his newfound outlook on life.

You guys are in the final month of tour for this record. Have you reflected on the experience? I think so, on some level. This was our first foray into alternative radio. We did a lot of really crazy things. We played to massive crowds and sold out shows that we never thought we could have. For me, I didn’t think this record was ever going to happen, but it did, and all of these wonderful things happened along the way. We’re really grateful, and we’re just trying to enjoy it as much as possible.

Have your feelings about the business changed? In terms of the industry, a lot has changed even in the last two years. I definitely have opinions about how I think things should be run just because I see bands getting screwed over and I see terrible bands getting way too much assistance. It’s a weird time, but I think the important thing to do is stay positive and be as honest with yourself

as possible. If I was ever in a position where I had to compromise, I probably wouldn’t be talking to you right now. It completely defeats the purpose.

What crosses your mind when you think about going home? The word sleep immediately pops up. [Laughs.] But I’m never not working. If it’s not tour, it’s another project, and that’s just the way I am no matter what. I’m the kind of person who will probably never retire. I love being busy and having lots of things to do. I kind of go crazy if I have time off, but I am booking my honeymoon, finally.



Does it excite you to start thinking about a new Passion Pit album? Oh, of course. But the label isn’t

pushing it. It’s kind of like, if you want to do it, then do it. I feel like some people don’t get it. I handed in Gossamer when it was done. [The label] was checking in early on, but I explained that it just doesn’t work that way. I’m very lucky to work with people that respect my space and know that I need time to compress and make sure that with all the other projects going on, Passion Pit stays Passion Pit. It’s very much a singular vision, and that takes a lot of concentration and a specific headspace. I have to be careful about when I execute it and how I execute it.

After a year and a half, does Gossamer still resonate with you? I mean, now all I hear are so many

situations where I could have rearranged the song and just made it so much better, and it bothers me to the nth degree. After a certain point, the songs become dead and lifeless; playing it over and over again becomes torture. From a production standpoint, I think down the line, people will start to understand how really strange this record is, and that’s one thing I wouldn’t change about it. Looking back on it, I’m proud of the fact that I did certain things, but touring everyday … it’s maddening. Now I’m to the point where I’m trying to stop beating myself up over it and start thinking about what can I do in a preventative sense to make sure I never have to come across this again. And I will inevitably, but you know — that’s kind of my story. Passion Pit plays the Santa Barbara Bowl (1122 N. Milpas St.) on Saturday, October 26, at 7 p.m., with The Joy Formidable.

ou’d be hard-pressed to find better jazz than a performance of the San Francisco Jazz Collective (pictured above). Bigger than a combo, smaller than a big band, the swing is just right. The four-piece rhythm section and four horns sport royal pedigrees and gold-standard abilities, but more, the SFJAZZ Collective (SFJC) was born as an act of homage and maintains a measure of egoless-ness readily evident in both arrangements and the restraint of its soloists. The integrity of the project has stayed intact more than 10 years, despite personnel turnover, proving the soundness of the founding idea. That idea is the annual honoring of a modern jazz master with new arrangements of essential tunes and new tunes inspired by the master. The 10th-anniversary tour, however, is an exception, a retrospect that pulls charts from past years, honoring Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Ornette Coleman, Chick Corea, Horace Silver, and Thelonious Monk. Fancy time signatures and gorgeous horn choruses painted the performance as a whole. Shorter’s “Armageddon” featured extended alto-sax work by Miguel Zenón and a window into the brilliance of vibraphone wonder Warren Wolf, whose pressure-cooker intensity blew a mallet from his hand mid-solo, to the delight of the audience. Bassist Matt Penman’s “Frosted Evils” put trumpeter Avishai Cohen in chatty dialogue with Zenón, but Cohen really stretched out on the hard-bop intro to Ornette Coleman’s “When Will the Blues Leave.” You might expect a larger ensemble like this to go dizzy in its rotation of soloists, but the SFJC gives extended essays to only one or two players per song, keeping the program fresh with anticipation, as new voices are revealed ■ gradually.

n the recently released From Here to Now to You, Jack Johnson (pictured) returns to his songwriting roots, so what more perfect way to conclude his world tour than to return to the place where it all began? On Sunday night, Johnson’s nearly two-hour-long show found the singer reiterating his love for Santa Barbara and his love of entertaining. What separated this tour from past outings was all in the tickets; fans applied for a raffle months in advance, and only a few hundred were selected to go, making those in attendance all the more appreciative. Johnson opened up the show in solo mode, swathed in a single spotlight for “Do You Remember.” He played a little bit of old and plenty of new and was sure to hit on favorites like “Girl I Wanna Lay You Down,” bringing it back to his days at UCSB. He appeared especially comfortable, too, often pausing in between songs to crack a joke or tell a story. Backed by a series of beachy projections, Johnson launched into “Bubble Toes,” incorporating bits and pieces of Steve Miller’s “The Joker” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Crosstown Traffic.” Later, bassist Merlo Podlewski surprised with a short rap sesh during “Staple It Together.” But the show hit its climax when Johnson invited opener Bahamas back onstage to perform with him and longtime friend Paula Fuga, who sang and whistled her “Country Road” and Johnson’s “Turn Your Love.” Johnson, Fuga, and the crew came up to the very front of the stage and concluded the show with an acoustic rendition of “Better Together,” delivered quietly, accented by a hushed audience sing-along and capped off with an affectionately familiar “See you guys real soon.” ■



SARONG SONG: Thom Yorke (right) and Flea donned skirts and busted some serious dance moves during Atoms for Peace’s Thursday-night show at the Santa Barbara Bowl.

To the Beat of Their Own Drums Atoms for Peace. At the Santa Barbara Bowl, Thursday, October 17. Reviewed by Aly Comingore


’ve always argued that when you get to a certain age, or a certain level of fame, you simply stop giving a fuck what anyone thinks. In recent years, I’ve continually cited my grandma as a prime example of this phenomenon, and as of Thursday, I officially added Thom Yorke and Flea to my list. At the helm of Atoms for Peace, the Radiohead frontman and the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist chose to keep things simple, which, in their minds, meant matching floor-length skirts and black shirts. But no matter — the heart of the performance was all in the “dance moves,” which amounted to a series of spaz-outs (Thom) and twirls (Flea) that often threatened to overshadow the actual music. Lu ck y for u s , though, Atoms for Peace’s live set lives up to both its principals (the lineup was rounded out by drummer Joey Wa r o n k e r, p e r cussionist Mauro Refosco, and multiinstrumentalist Nigel Godrich) and its recorded count e r p a r t s . D r aw ing heavily on the world-music influences Yorke so often cites, Thursday’s set included heaps of steel drums, sitar-inspired guitar tones, and naturalistic samples. Early on, “Ingenue” smartly paired Yorke’s piano with a flurry of drums and cajón; later, “Dropped”

melded Caribbean percussion with an onslaught of industrial-strength synths. For Yorke fans, the night proved the secondbest thing to seeing Radiohead in the flesh. The cuts from Yorke’s solo effort, The Eraser, were peppered throughout the show. The whole production was backed by an epic and dazzling display of lights and projections. “Paperbag Writer” even made an appearance. And save for the few peculiar speak-sing breakdowns (“Rabbit in Your Headlights”), the singer’s voice was as haunting and malleable as ever. In recent years, half of the fun of catching Yorke live has become watching him move. (Seriously. There are whole YouTube channels devoted to the spectacle.) And, personally speaking, it’s hard to imagine a better foil to his flailing limbs and worm-like body rolls than Flea’s springloaded stage presence. Musically, the highlight of the night came with “Amok,” which found the band layering guitars on top of guitars to stunning effect. But my favorite moment took place during the long, jammy breakdown of “Feeling Pulled Apart by Horses,” whereby Flea and Yorke dabbled in jazz, laid the funk on thick, and danced around like sugar-high kids in a candy store. Simply put, it was as unabashed, unpretentious, and ridiculous-looking as cerebral art-rock gets. ocTobEr 24, 2013

ACLU’s FALL COMMUNITY FORUM “Privacy – government surveillance of American citizens”

Discussions of the US Government’s surveillance of citizens by electronic and other means. Legal, Constitutional, Moral, and Civil Rights Issues

Speaker: Hector Villagra Executive Director of the Southern California ACLU Audience question and answer period. For information, call 805-729-5776 | TRAVELING MEN: Stephen Dorff (left) and Emile Hirsch play brothers on the run in The Motel Life. The film screens this Monday, October 28, at Isla Vista Theater.

Screenwriter Noah Harpster Talks The Motel Life by Aly Comingore


n the cinematic reimagining of Willy Vlautin’s novel The Motel Life, Stephen Dorff and Emile Hirsch portray Jerry Lee and Frank, two working-class brothers who hole up in a Reno Motel after one is involved in a tragic hit-and-run. The story, adapted for the screen by friends Micah Fitzerman-Blue and UCSB alum Noah Harpster, is a troubling and eye-opening tale about grief, guilt, and family loyalty, punctuated by strong performances and a highly stylized blending of live action and animation, which removes Frank’s dreams of grandeur from the stark reality of the mess he’s in. This Monday, October 28, Harpster returns to his alma mater for a screening and post-film Q&A at Isla Vista Theater as part of the Magic Lantern Film Series. In a recent interview, I chatted with the screenwriter about the book, the movie, and the appeal of film’s tragic losers.

How/when did you come across Willy’s novel? What initially attracted you to the story? I just looked back in my emails, and I first mentioned the book to Micah almost exactly six years ago. I’d picked up the book because I saw Willy Vlautin’s name on it. He has a pretty great band called Richmond Fontaine. I read it on a flight, and that was it. I found Willy via the Internet, and we started talking. I told him his book was like Raymond Carver had written Of Mice and Men. I’m surprised he didn’t hang up on me. Willy is a badass. I recently visited him in Portland, and he took me on a drunken late-night tour of Powell’s — running me up and down the stairs, taking me through all of his favorite books. It was a night I will not forget. In your experience, how did adapting a text compare to writing an original screenplay? Did you feel an added pressure to do the novel justice? What’s great about adapting is that you have something to fall back on when you feel like you’re getting lost. You can go back to the source. You don’t get that luxury if you are writing something original. And, yes, if the material you are adapting is good, which it hopefully is, then there is always an added pressure to do the work justice. I kind of like that. I come from a theater background, and that’s how it works in the theater. If it’s not working, it’s because you haven’t found it yet, not because the play sucks. Unless we all agree that the play sucks — then the play probably sucks. Can you tell me a bit about the casting? How did Emile and Stephen get involved? The directors

really led that charge. They went after Emile. He read the script and was onboard from there. Then they read a lot of actors for Jerry Lee, but Stephen came out on top. They both are so good in the movie, I think. Do you have a brother? If so, how did that relationship help inform writing for Frank and Jerry? I don’t have a brother, but luckily Willy’s book does a great job with this. There wasn’t a ton of work that Micah and I had to do when it came to translating the brother relationship. Willy always says that in writing the novel, he set out to write a book about brothers who never fight. That’s pretty telling, so we just tried to build on that. I feel like the tragic loser is such a quintessential character in modern American film. As a student (or an adult), were there any films/characters that you recall fitting that description and especially resonating with you? Hmmm. Well, I would say I don’t care much for losers just because they’re losers … but I have a lot of love for a loser with conviction. A loser who refuses to stay down. Some of my favorite movies are The Big Lebowski, Harold and Maude, High Fidelity, Rushmore, Raising Arizona, and Stand by Me … so maybe you’re on to me. What do you hope people take away from The Motel Life? Even if you weren’t dealt one … perspective and forgiveness can provide a damn good life. What’s next? Our next project is called I’m Proud of You. It’s based on the memoir of a journalist named Tim Madigan, whose life was falling apart and then had it put back together by Mister Rogers. Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine) are directing. I’m Proud of You (like The Motel Life) has been a labor of love for us, and I feel incredibly lucky that it’s happening. We got to go to Pittsburgh and meet everyone from the Fred Rogers world. It was special trip to say the least.

Queen for a Bloody Night Carrie. Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore star in a film written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lawrence D. Cohen, based on the novel by Stephen King, and directed by Kimberly Peirce. Reviewed by Josef Woodard


n any even semi-faithful remake of the revenge-of-thebullied horror classic Carrie, barring some perversely sanitized model, there will be blood. And director Kimberly (Boys Don’t Cry) Peirce gives us plenty of the stuff — of the human, pig, and biblical varieties — in her spooky-cool remake of director Brian De Palma’s 1976 cinematic vivification of the Stephen King novel. But wait, there’s more, including a cunning mix of fidelity to the King source and the De Palma film we know, love, and love to cringe at; artistic touches of this director’s own devising; and some sobering contemporary-life connections involving bullying in the social-media and post-Columbine age. Did we mention Julianne Moore? Moore, no stranger to the bloody, half-pulpy turf of arty horror flicks (who can forget her brainy dinner scene in Hannibal?), gives us a scarily fine and troubled performance, playing a disturbed, man-hating über-fundamentalist Christian giving birth to Carrie in an archetypal haunted house. Fast-forward to the soul-testing purgatory of high school, and the stage is set for some righteous vengeance and supernatural powers, especially come prom time. Carrie’s Carrie, star-material teen Chloë Grace Moretz, is something extra special to behold, particularly considering the high-caliber precedent laid down by the awesome Sissy Spacek in the original. Moretz summons up a wicked

You gotta love her, even during — or especially during — her orgiastic prom revenge. A lesson learned: Be careful whom you bully, kids. There are chilling moments of the more real-worldly kind attached, by historical association, with the 2013 version and not the 1976 model, such as the pernicious power of smart-phone sadism as a tool of bullying and the tragic list of school shootings in the past several years. In the wake of such data, we can take comfort in the supernatural hyperbole and the darkly funny winks of horror-film kitsch in-jokes, reminding us that the new Carrie is, after ■ all, just a movie — with fake blood to spare.

The Fifth Estate. Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Brühl, and Laura Linney star in a film written by Josh Singer, based on the books Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website by Daniel DomscheitBerg and WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy by David Leigh and Luke Harding, and directed by Bill Condon.



Reviewed by D.J. Palladino VIRTUAL DECEPTION: Benedict Cumberbatch (left) plays WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate alongside Daniel Brühl. is simply overwhelming, lost in philosophical issues about technology. The Fifth Estate also manages to squander a great cast. Iceman Benedict Cumberbatch is perfect as Assange in a twitchy British method performance, but Brühl’s heroworshipping turned to disaffection seems obvious. The subplot with Laura Linney and Stanley Tucci as American intel officers feels like an intrusion from another movie. Condon’s ultimate problem is his helpless two-sides-toevery-story liberalism, a hand-wringing narrative scheme that can’t make up its own mind, let alone ours. This tale lends itself to moral paradoxes galore, no doubt, but what’s interesting are the people involved. Condon wants to explore the viability of the Internet and thus resorts to whirling graphics and baffling problems. We mere humans are in the middle of that story and far more worried about ■ how it all might end.

oward the end of this dithering pseudo-investigation of WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange, our true protagonist Daniel (played dully by the usually brilliant Daniel Brühl) asks Guardian editor Nick Davies (David Thewlis) where they ought to begin to further usher in this media revolution, this whistle-blowing Internet. “At the beginning,” replies Davies. “Every good story begins at the beginning.” This is the most compelling way we know that no real journalist took part in the production of this preachy, unresolved film. Most writers know that most great stories begin in the humanizing middle, from The Odyssey to In Cold Blood. Bill (Gods and Monsters, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) Condon pretentiously begins his film about Julian Assange’s disruptions of a Swiss bank, an African election, and the American diplomatic and military establishments with an overblown historical montage of every news forum from Hammurabi to Cronkite and beyond, though he begins his narrative in media res, with the first truly troubling encounter Daniel has with Julian. When we eventually revisit the scene, though, Condon doesn’t let anything interesting happen; we haven’t learned much, and the whole mood of the film

Escape Plan (115 mins.; R: violence, language throughout)

Just as we might take a strange fascination in the charming bathtub-side paintings of former president George W. Bush, we have a particular and renewed interest in the special subspecies of “action-flick acting” by our state’s former fearless leader, Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger. On some levels, it may still be hard to believe he was a highly paid actor or a head of state, but that’s part of the fun in keeping tabs on the man, who teams up with another muscle-bound, English-challenged screen hero, Sylvester Stallone, in Escape Plan, a middling but oddly entertaining prison flick. Rest assured: Schwarzenegger is not lapsing into girlie-man roles, at least this time out. He plays a tough guy in a bleak situation, a prisoner in a higher-thanhigh-security escape-proof dungeon for criminals in need of being “disappeared.” At the center of the plot is Stallone’s character, whose job it is to test the security of prisons by breaking out of them. Asking us to accept Stallone as an intelligent mastermind, rather than just a determined lunkhead, strains credulity and inspires muffled laughter, even among the film’s creators. There is a funny scene in which Stallone spews some detailed scientific data at the prison table, and Schwarzenegger mugs, “You don’t look that smart.” Stallone retorts, “You don’t, either.” True, that. In terms of its place in the genre of prison-escape cinema, Escape Plan isn’t exactly on par with Robert Bresson’s ascetic masterpiece A Man Escaped, and yet it does appeal by virtue of its attention to the necessarily minute details. Beyond such minutiae intrigue, the film supplies us with a few of those tasty, Austrianaccented Arnold-ian zingers we so love to hear, as when he tells Sly, “You fight like a vegetarian,” or kisses off foes in a ludicrous shoot-out finale, “Have a lovely day, assholes.” It’s good to have him not mincing words among the citizenry and on the big screen again.

sexuality, brief drug use)

A young man’s unrealistic expectations make it impossible for him to form a real relationship — even when his dream girl comes along. What makes Don Jon one of the more inventive quirks of the season is that it is both frank and explicit, while also being one of the more artistically individualistic rite-of-passage movies in recent memory.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF OCTOBER  ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): “I’m greedy,” says painter David Hockney,“but I’m not greedy for money — I think that can be a burden — I’m greedy for an exciting life.” According to my analysis, Aries, the cosmos is now giving you the go-ahead to cultivate Hockney’s style of greed. As you head out in quest of adventure, here’s an important piece of advice to keep in mind. Make sure you formulate an intention to seek out thrills that educate and inspire you rather than those that scare you and damage you. It’s up to you which kind you attract.

beauty of the Italian city. “When I went to Venice,” testified French novelist Marcel Proust, “my dream became my address.” American author Truman Capote chimed in that “Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs at one go.” I bring this up, Cancerian, because even if you don’t make a pilgrimage to Venice, I expect that you will soon have the chance, metaphorically speaking, to consume an entire box of chocolate liqueurs at one go. Take your sweet time. Nibble slowly. Assume that each bite will offer a distinct new epiphany.



(Apr. 20 - May 20): French philosopher Simone Weil described the following scene: “Two prisoners in adjoining cells communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication.” This muted type of conversation is a useful metaphor for the current state of one of your important alliances, Taurus. That which separates you also connects you. But I’m wondering if it’s time to create a more direct link. Is it possible to bore a hole through the barrier between you so you can create a more intimate exchange?

(July 23 - Aug. 22): Do you have any interest in reworking — even revolutionizing — your relationship with the past? If so, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to do so. Cosmic forces will be on your side if you attempt any of the following actions: () Forgive yourself for your former failures and missteps. () Make atonement to anyone whom you hurt out of ignorance. () Reinterpret your life story to account for the ways that more recent events have changed the meaning of what happened long ago. () Resolve old business as thoroughly as you can. () Feel grateful for everyone who helped make you who you are today.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Scorpios are obsessive, brooding, suspicious, demanding, and secretive, right? That’s what traditional astrologers say, isn’t it? Well, no, actually. I think that’s a misleading assessment. It’s true that some Scorpios are dominated by the qualities I named. But my research shows that those types of Scorpios are generally not attracted to reading my horoscopes. My Scorpios tend instead to be passionately focused, deeply thoughtful, smartly discerning, intensely committed to excellence, and devoted to understanding the complex truth. These are all assets that are especially important to draw on right now. The world has an extraordinarily urgent need for the talents of you evolved Scorpios.

(May 21 - June 20): “I had tended to view waiting as mere passivity,” says author Sue Monk Kidd in her memoir. “When I looked it up in my dictionary, however, I found that the words ‘passive’ and ‘passion’ come from the same Latin root, pati, which means ‘to endure.’ Waiting is thus both passive and passionate. It’s a vibrant, contemplative work … It involves listening to disinherited voices within, facing the wounded holes in the soul, the denied and undiscovered, the places one lives falsely.” This is excellent counsel for you, Gemini. Are you devoted enough to refrain from leaping into action for now? Are you strong enough to bide your time?





(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Don’t you wish your friends and loved ones would just somehow figure out what you want without you having to actually say it? Wouldn’t it be great if they were telepathic or could read your body language

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): “If you’re in pitch blackness, all you can do is sit tight until your eyes get used to the dark.” That helpful advice appears in Norwegian Wood, a novel by Haruki Murakami. Now I’m passing it on to you, just in time for your cruise through the deepest, darkest phase of your cycle. When you first arrive, you may feel blind and dumb. Your surroundings might seem impenetrable and your next move unfathomable. But don’t worry. Refrain from drawing any conclusions whatsoever. Cultivate an empty mind and an innocent heart. Sooner or later, you will be able gather the clues you need to take wise action.

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Right now you have a genius for escaping, for dodging, for eluding. That could be expressed relatively negatively or relatively positively. So for instance, I don’t recommend that you abscond from boring but crucial responsibilities. You shouldn’t ignore or stonewall people whose alliances with you are important to keep healthy. On the other hand, I encourage you to fly, fly away from onerous obligations that give you little in return. I will applaud your decision to blow off limitations that are enforced by neurotic habits, and I will celebrate your departure from energy-draining situations that manipulate your emotions.


(June 21 - July 22): “Venice is to the man-made world what the Grand Canyon is to the natural one,” said travel writer Thomas Swick in an article praising the awe-inciting

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): “As a bee seeks nectar from all kinds of flowers, seek teachings everywhere,” advises the Tibetan Buddhist holy text known as the Dzogchen Tantra. That’s your assignment, Virgo. Be a student 24 hours a day, seven days a week — yes, even while you’re sleeping. (Maybe you could go to school in your dreams.) Regard every experience as an opportunity to learn something new and unexpected. Be ready to rejoice in all the revelations, both subtle and dramatic, that will nudge you to adjust your theories and change your mind.


so well that they would surmise your secret thoughts? Here’s a news bulletin: IT AIN’T GOING TO HAPPEN! EVER! That’s why I recommend that you refrain from resenting people for not being mind readers, and instead simply tell them point-blank what you’re dreaming about and yearning for. They may or may not be able to help you reach fulfillment, but at least they will be in possession of the precise information they need to make an informed decision.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): In 2008, writer Andrew Kessler hung out with scientists at NASA’s mission control as they looked for water on the planet Mars. Three years later, he published a book about his experiences, Martian Summer: Robot Arms, Cowboy Spacemen, and My  Days with the Phoenix Mars Mission. To promote sales, he opened a new bookstore that was filled with copies of just one book: his own. I suggest that you come up with a comparable plan to promote your own product, service, brand, or personality. The time is right to summon extra chutzpah as you expand your scope.

ing weeks might be a good time. Have you fantasized about getting involved in an organization that will help save the world even as it feeds your dreams to become the person you want to be? Do it! Would you consider hatching a benevolent conspiracy that will serve as an antidote to an evil conspiracy? Now is the time. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you have more power than usual to build alliances. Your specialties between now and December 1 will be to mobilize group energy and round up supporters and translate high ideals into practical actions.

Homework: Imagine you get three wishes on one condition: They can’t benefit you directly, but have to be wished on someone else’s behalf.

Wine of the Week


HammerSky Vineyards Estate Grown Zinfandel 2008




october 24, 2013

Zin is California’s de facto state grape in part because it grows most anywhere, including the many hot corners, where the varietal has gained a traditional reputation for being super‑ripe, juicy beyond measure, and often flabby. A growing wave of producers in slightly cooler climates, such as Templeton Gap producers like HammerSky on Paso Robles Westside, are focused on returning acidity and balance to zin, and this 2008 bottling is a solid example of the grape’s true potential. But being slightly lighter doesn’t mean that HammerSky — which also boasts an inn on their property — skimps on flavors, with prune, black licorice, earth, and even sanguine meaty touches here. This zin is an intriguing, multifaceted experience. See

f fter breaking the news on July 30, 2012, that Daily Grind was going to open a second South Coast location, the Restaurant Guy is happy to report that the popular espresso, juice, and deli brand has opened at  De la Vina Street, in the former longtime home of Taco Bell. The original Daily Grind was born on December 4, 1995, at  De la Vina Street. Yolanda and Jesus Gonzalez, along with Yolanda’s brother Louis Cubilla, purchased the upper De la Vina property last year, gutted it, and rebuilt it from the ground up. The new Daily Grind is open 5:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. every day, including Thanksgiving and Christmas.

FIREHOUSE SUBS TO OPEN: With 600+ restau-

rants in 35 states, Firehouse Subs is adding a new location at  Seville Road in Isla Vista. For more information, visit Thanks to reader Joe for the tip. MAGGIE’S CLOSES: For 29 years,  State Street

was the home of State & A Bar and Grill. It appears that the follow-up act, Maggie’s restaurant, which opened in August 2012, survived just 14 months. After receiving a tip, I called Maggie’s restaurant and heard the following message: “Hello. We’re sorry to inform you that Maggie’s is officially closed.”

TAKENOYA CLOSES: Reader Bob let me know that Takenoya at  Calle Real in Goleta has closed. Bob says a handwritten note is taped to the front door indicating that they are sorry to be closing and that it appears to be sudden. I called Takenoya, which opened in March 2005, and confirmed that they are no longer in business. A GREEK GOOD-BYE: This just in from the recently-closed Greek House Café at  West Haley Street: “John, I wish to thank you, santabarbara. com, and all my customers for a great 7 years at the Greek House Café. After many years in the restaurant business, it was time for me to take a break and work on other projects that I also enjoy. I sold my shop to another party. I will be developing my catering company ( to offer more services such as road catering and full coordinating for weddings and all events. I also have some other projects that I am working on. As a native of S.B. and UCSB alum, I really enjoyed all my customers and friends I have met all around the county, with fond memories; everyone was fantastic. For those who crave one of my Greek gyros, go visit my lifelong (Greek) friend John at McKenzie Market; he makes a really good one. Well upward and onward, still here in S.B. MORE All the best, Stan.” FOOD



FRESHLY GROUND: The Daily Grind has opened the doors to its new digs on upper De la Vina Street.

CHOWDER FESTIVAL: Now in its fourth year, Chowder Fest, presented by Food & Home magazine, has quickly become a mainstay on Santa Barbara’s festival circuit. Held at the Montecito Country Club on October 27, noon - 3:00 p.m., Santa Barbara Chowder Fest attracts dozens of restaurants competing for “Chowder Champ,” judged both by a professional panel and festival attendees. Enjoy an afternoon of fine wine, great beer, and a host of other treats apart from award-winning clam or “creative” chowder. Live music, auction items, and the opportunity to win a raffle for 52 bottles of wine round out this event. Tickets can be purchased online for $65 at santabarbara JILL’S PLACE UPDATE: This just in from reader Meg at Jill’s Place,  Santa Barbara Street: “Hi, John! Thanks for letting your readers know about the fire at Jill’s Place on May 10, 2013. I know the owner, Jill Shalhoob, and I am excited to share good news with you. Although the damage was fairly extensive, Jill is currently working with the city to rebuild and even to add improvements to what was already a local favorite. I’ll keep you updated on the grand reopening. The updates will be posted at JillsPlaceRestaurant.”


on Mission


has reported that McDonald’s in Camino Real Marketplace will be getting a drive-through, after the Goleta Planning Commission approved the addition. I live right near that McDonald’s and know that the roadway in front of the eatery is one of the busiest intersections in Goleta. The article says they are redesigning that area to ease traffic concerns and make it more pedestrian friendly. Hopefully it works, because it gets really jammed up there every day.
