The Earth is the Bottom of the Sky Friday, November 15, 5:30 – 7:30 pm Inspired by the work featured in John Divola: As Far As I Could Get and Totally 80s: Gifts to the Permanent Collection, explore the limits of excess, mark making in the void, velvet painting, pop-up abandoned architecture, and the “As Far As You Can Get” gallery game. Enjoy “The Running Dog”—the evening’s signature cocktail with grapefruit juice, vodka, and a smoky salt rim, and rediscover appetizers that deconstruct and reconstruct signature dishes of superstar chefs from the 80s. Listen to and relive 80s iconic tunes replayed, remixed, and reimagined as “Hardly Recognizable Covers” amidst beautiful, desolate, thought-provoking art.

Includes hors d’ouevres, wines, and signature cocktails

There are many cool adjectives to describe The Indy’s new Calendar and Listings editor, Terry Ortega. Broadway fanatic. Deadpan joker. I Love Lucy fan (her Lucy Halloween costume rocked). Fashion Institute (FIDM) alum. Muralist. Before she joined our team in early October, Terry worked for a travel agency, with perks that included trips to Peru, Venezuela, Guatemala, and parts of Europe. She has been all over the world, but this fourth-generation Santa Barbaran and mom of two knows that her hometown, with its great beaches and “old-time community,” is world-class in its own way. “It’s still a small town — that’s what I love about it.”

Sheriff’s detectives arrested three men on 11/10 on charges of murder and conspiracy for a September assault of a homeless man who never regained consciousness from his injuries. Roman Romero, 18, Jonathan Andrade, 20, and Carlos Medina, 44 — all area residents who often went to Granny’s Field behind the Turnpike Shopping Center, where the alleged assault took place — were booked into County Jail, each on $1 million bail. Richard Alden Boden, 51, was found unconscious in the field on 9/16. Boden, who was also known to frequent the site, was taken to the hospital but never regained consciousness after weeks of treatment.

All Is Not Well

DRILL, BABY, DRILL: Santa Maria resident Walt Mankins argued before the supervisors Tuesday in support of Santa Maria Energy’s 110 proposed new wells.

Enviros Successfully Challenge Oil-Drilling Project

T

BY LY Z H O F F M A N

oday, we’re here to talk about a number of things,” said Nathan Alley, an attorney for the Environmental Defense Center. From jobs and taxes to oil leaks and environmental disasters, including the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara and the recent typhoon in the Philippines, supporters and opponents of Santa Maria Energy’s proposed 110 new oil wells did talk of many things Tuesday, all in their efforts to convince the Board of Supervisors to reject or uphold an appeal of the project’s permitted greenhouse gas emissions. But after nearly six hours of impassioned comments from 110 members of the public, pointed arguments from representatives for the Environmental Defense Center and Santa Maria Energy, and heated deliberation among themselves, the supervisors voted 3-2 to require Santa Maria Energy to further reduce its greenhouse gas emissions — down to 10,000 metric tons per year from the previously approved 62,000, at an estimated annual cost to the company of $500,000. “We are very disappointed that the Board of Supervisors chose to not follow the recommendation of their staff, and we need to analyze this decision further because we have to live in the real world of economics,” said Bob Poole, Santa Maria Energy’s public and government affairs manager, after the vote. “The project has to work for us, or we can’t do it.” The company, Poole added, has 30 days to decide if it wants to sue the county over the decision. Tuesday’s meeting wasn’t so much a question of if the project, proposed in 2009, would become reality, but how much it would cost the company and the environment. The EDC’s appeal asked that the 110 new cyclic steam injection wells — there are 26 pilot wells on site — be held to a more stringent standard than approved 10

THE INDEPENDENT

by the county’s Planning Commission, on a 3-2 vote, in September. While the commissioners had voted to hold Santa Maria Energy to a 29 percent greenhouse-gas emissions threshold — meaning the 136 wells’ projected yearly emissions of 88,000 metric tons would be reduced to about 62,000 — the supervisors’ decision will nail the company to a far stricter flat limit of 10,000 metric tons per year. That 10,000-ton figure was one of the requests of the EDC’s appeal. The law firm had maintained that the 29 percent figure is unprecedented and lower than the long-standing 10,000-metric-tons-per-year threshold the county has borrowed from other jurisdictions since the passage in 2006 of California’s Global Warming Solutions Act (AB ). Under the law, which aims to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, such energy projects are to be held to at least a 15.3 percent emissions threshold, although local jurisdictions can be stricter. The 136 total wells, projected to produce 3,300 barrels per day, would sit on 32 acres of the company’s Orcutt Oil Field property and would come with two steam generators — the main emissions contributors — as well as an oil pipeline and a water pipeline that would transfer 300,000 gallons daily of recycled wastewater from the Laguna County Sanitation District. The steam would be injected into the porous diatomaceous earth, thinning the oil and releasing it from the pores. It’s not fracking, Santa Maria Energy officials have said, because it doesn’t break the rock. The EDC’s appeal claimed that the company could negate its emissions entirely, for about $1 a barrel. But Poole has called that claim unfair given the company’s 7.5 percent return-oninvestment — Apple makes 20 percent, he said — or about $7.50 per barrel. Nonetheless, Alley said he was pleased with the decision: “We are

november 14, 2013

satisfied with what happened today,” he said. “We’re satisfied that the status quo has been maintained. Ten thousand metric tons is a heck of a lot better than 50,000 or 60,000 metric tons.” The 3-2 vote — Supervisors Steve Lavagnino, who gave an impassioned speech, and Peter Adam, who made a failed motion to ease the threshold to the state’s prescribed 15.3 percent, voted no — means that if the project’s emissions exceed 10,000 metric tons per year, Santa Maria Energy will have to employ on-site mitigation measures or buy reduction credits, which county staff said cost anywhere from $2-$8 per metric ton, or the aforementioned estimated $500,000 a year. That amount could fluctuate year to year based on the quantity of emissions the company produces and how the credits market varies. In what one of the public commenters said seemed like a “civil war between North and South County,” Santa Barbara County residents — from climate-change deniers and science teachers to Santa Maria Energy employees and millennials concerned about the planet they’ll inherit, and for many seniors, the one they’ll leave behind — argued to the supervisors the project’s benefits and drawbacks. Proponents of the project, many of whom wore yellow in line with the company’s honeycomb logo, invoked jobs (50-75 permanent full-time positions, according to Santa Maria Energy officials), as well as property-tax revenues ($3 million a year) for the county’s general fund and schools, and a yearly economic spurt ($170 million) for the county. Opponents of the project, however, cited concerns about what could go wrong in the wake of what could go right. They worried about everything from oil seeps — a subject the supervisors looked at earlier in their meeting — and the detriments to farmland and cont’d page 17 

Santa Barbara police have linked a series of crimes — drug dealing, grand theft, robbery, and felony assault — that have occurred downtown in recent weeks to Andrew Holmberg, 22, Charles Taylor, 25, and Justin Moore (pictured), 30. Holmberg and Taylor are booked in County Jail on a slew of felony charges, and authorities are currently looking for Moore. The incidents they were reportedly involved in include the 9/19 theft of a BMW from a Paseo Nuevo parking lot; the beating of a homeless man on State Street on 9/26; multiple and ongoing drug deals at De la Guerra Plaza involving psilocybin, LSD, marijuana, and ecstasy; an assault and theft on 10/11 and 10/12 that left the victim with a broken jaw and eye socket; the assault of a 59-year-old man in De la Guerra Plaza on 10/12; and another beating of a homeless man on Anacapa Street on 10/15. At around 5:30 p.m. on 11/11, a woman pushing a stroller with a 20-month-old infant inside across Cathedral Oaks Road at Santa Marguerita Drive was hit and killed by an 18-yearold motorist. The woman, who was not the child’s mother and whose name has not been released, was declared dead at the scene; the infant remains in critical condition. The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident and has not released any additional information. A long-stewing project to install pedestrian safety devices along the crosswalk at the historically dangerous intersection — blinking lights, curb extensions, and a median curb — will be put out to bid in December, with construction expected to start later in the winter. The council is scheduled to hear an update on the project at its 12/17 meeting.

Final Election Results

SO HAPPY TOGETHER: City Councilmember Cathy Murillo and election winner Gregg Hart shared a moment last week.

With the final tabulation in for last week’s Santa Barbara City Council election, firsttime candidate Megan Diaz Alley — the most outspokenly progressive of all the 10 candidates — improved her showing, coming in fifth rather than sixth. While Alley managed to eke out a 17-vote advantage over Lesley Wiscomb, another first-time challenger, it was still nowhere near enough to place her in the winning circle. The top three candidates remain unchanged: incumbent Bendy White with 8,884 votes, former councilmember Gregg Hart with 7,829, and incumbent Frank Hotchkiss with 6,570. Liberal challengers David Landecker and Alley came in fourth and fifth with 5,642 and 5,489, respectively, followed closely by Wiscomb and Jason Nelson with 5,472 and 5,274 votes. Democrats gathered last Thursday night to celebrate and lick their wounds simultaneously. The celebrating was for maintaining the four-to-three edge they currently enjoy on the council, the latter for blowing their chance to defeat the more conservative Hotchkiss. Four Democrats ran for three open seats, thus splitting the vote. Mayor Helene Schneider posted the most lopsided reelection win in recent history by beating challenger Wayne Scoles 73 percent to 26 percent. With no defining issues or clear slates of candidates, turnout was a lackluster 38 percent, with 4,700 of the 17,659 votes cast turned in the last two days of the election. That’s typically a time dominated by — Nick Welsh Democratic Party operatives.

The Santa Barbara Airport began repaving one of its three runways on 11/12, removing the current surface, filling cracks, and laying down new asphalt along the 4,184-foot airstrip. The $1.74 million project was awarded to Granite Construction, and work is expected to finish by January 2014. The financially beleaguered Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics just won a federal grant of $812,500 to open a new clinic in the City of Goleta, where low-income health-care consumers are currently not served. After the first year, the grant — issued by the Department of Health and Human Services — will fund the clinic to the tune of $650,000 a year. According to a press statement from Congressmember Lois Capps’s office, it’s estimated the new clinic will serve 19,000 people a year.

PERPETUALLY PERSISTENT: The veterans court may have seemed an obvious thing, but had recently retired judge George Eskin taken no for an answer, it never would have happened.

Judge Eskin’s Last Hurrah

Veterans Court Holds First Graduation

A

BY N I C K W E L S H lthough Judge George Eskin officially hung up his black robes nearly a month ago, last Friday’s event — the first graduation of Santa Barbara’s budding veterans court program — may have been the proudest moment of his 10-year tenure on the criminal bench. Looking at the ceremony strictly by the numbers, it was an exceedingly modest affair. Five men who’d served in the armed services and subsequently got themselves in trouble had managed to stay clean and sober, attend therapy, and stare their demons in the eye for about a year each. For so doing, the criminal charges against them were either dropped outright or reduced. The four graduates — one could not attend — stood at the front of the main hall at the Veterans Memorial Building along Cabrillo Boulevard. Celebrating with them — and bearing witness to their success — was not just Judge Eskin, who got the veterans diversion court off the ground, but a veritable who’s who of Santa Barbara’s political class. There was Eskin’s wife, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, District Attorney Joyce Dudley, Judge Jean Dandona, three county supervisors, three Santa Barbara city councilmembers, Goleta’s mayor, the Public Defender, representatives from a host of other elected officials’ offices, and a handful of city cops, many in white gloves and their dress blues, bursting with pomp and solemnity. The rhetoric of the event, as one speaker put it, was all about “compassion not condemnation, rehabilitation not retribution.” As group hugs go, it doesn’t get more high-octane than this. Veterans courts, like drug courts and other diversion programs, are not particularly new or even novel. There are at least 200 throughout the country, including one in Santa Maria that is about two and a half years old. What distinguishes veterans courts from other diversion programs is that there are actually resources — money and programs — available to help

returning servicemen and women struggling with mental health and substance-abuse issues. The threat of criminal prosecution is brought to bear to induce vets to avail themselves of the help they might not otherwise seek. But even so, Santa Barbara’s court personnel — facing sustained budget woes — have been hard-pressed to take on unwieldy new programs requiring the active collaboration between a wide array of agencies with conflicting missions in the face of chronic shortfalls. Getting all these parties — prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation officers, mentalhealth caseworkers, law enforcement, and the Veterans Administration — on the same page was Judge Eskin. He never served, having blown his knee out in high school playing football. But his father served as a lieutenant colonel in the Army during World War II and was stationed in Europe. His uncle was part of the D-Day invasion of Omaha Beach.“This is my way of trying to pay back,” Eskin said. It took a lot of stubbornness on his part to do so, recalled prosecuting attorney Michael Carrozzo. “I can’t tell you how many times I heard him told,‘No, it can’t be done,’ ” said Carrozzo, who served as the District Attorney’s point person in the program. “And he’d say, ‘We’re going to do it anyway.’” It was Eskin who interviewed judges who presided over successful veterans courts elsewhere in the country. It was Eskin who brought in experts in the special care required by combat vets. And it was Eskin who shoehorned Carrozzo — who served four years as a judge advocate general as an Army captain at Ft. Irwin — to get involved. Eskin is quick to heap praise on Carrozzo for making the program work. Carrozzo functions as the point person and gatekeeper who weeds out vets who got into trouble well before their years of service from those whose service contributed to their problems with the law.“I never deployed, but I know what some of the consequences of deployment are,” Carrozzo said.

Development Near Freeway to Be Curbed New residential development within 250 feet of Highway 101 will be significantly restricted for the indefinite future if a new ordinance proposed by planners at Santa Barbara City Hall is adopted. This Tuesday, the City Council’s ordinance committee voted 3-0 to initiate the process of enacting such an ordinance. Driving the issue is concern by the state Air Resources Board that the exhaust particulates EXPLAIN YOURSELF: Councilmember Frank generated by diesel trucks can cause Hotchkiss questioned the proposed ordinance. more than 10 additional cancers per 1 million residents. The state board has recommended a 500-foot buffer, as has the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District. City planners insist that higher threshold was based on emissions generated from much wider freeways that get far more diesel truck traffic than Highway 101. The new rules will not apply to parcels of land buffered by sound walls or to industrial or commercial development. City planners estimate that 90 parcels could be affected. Remodels will be exempted if the new building footprint is less than 50 percent bigger than the existing structure. And if developers install filtration systems — or plant broad leafy trees that absorb the diesel particulates — city planners will consider their applications. The new ordinance is designed only as an interim measure and will be abandoned if and when new diesel exhaust regulations curb carcinogenic emissions. “We’re saying there’s a line in the sand, but we just don’t know where it is?” asked Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss. The line, he was told, was 10 new cancer cases per 1 million residents. — Nick Welsh

news briefs cont’d the restaurant from the apartments across the street. The project still has many hurdles to clear — including a second DRB meeting on 12/10 — before it can become a reality. Vintners threw understandable fits when the county scheduled two public feedback meetings on updated winery rules in the middle of the wine grape harvest, but the decision to move one of the meetings to 11/20 seems to have benefited all. The gap in time allowed county planners to tweak the draft in substantial ways, incorporating elements of what was said at the last meeting by both vintners and neighbors concerned about the wine industry’s growth in the Santa Ynez Valley. Among other changes, the planners eliminated one of the four tiers, adjusted minimum acreages and visitor numbers to more accurately accommodate winery needs, created a brand-new section focused solely on winemaker dinners, and reworked the hours allowed for special events, with separate regulations for wineries located in the “inner rural” neighborhoods versus those in fully rural areas. Area politicians marked Veterans Day 2013 by celebrating the opening of the Purple Heart Trail along Highway 101 in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, Assemblymember Das Williams, and Supervisor Salud Carbajal met Ventura County Supervisor Kathy Long and Commander Michael Cook, of Chapter 750 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, at Carpinteria’s Rincon Beach Park, where they unveiled signs to be posted along the route. This new stretch, which makes the trail continuous from Monterey through Ventura County, joins a national collection of trails honoring those who received the award.

News of theWeek

EDUCATION Hundreds of UCSB faculty and staff rallied last week for the second time to oppose University of California’s recent restructuring of its health-care options. The approaching changes terminate Anthem plans and an existing Health Net HMO Plan and establishes UC Care, a threetiered PPO plan and a Blue Shield Saving Plan. UCSB employees are angry because UC Care’s Tier 1 program is essentially not an option for them because UC Care was created with the idea to utilize UC medical centers, which UCSB does not have. Further, UC officials say they have been unable to strike a deal with Sansum Clinic and Cottage Health System. “Our interest in this is to insist that the UC Office of the President take conditions in Santa Barbara into account,” said Nelson Lichtenstein, president of the UCSB faculty association. Read more at independent.com/news. Army brass announced late last week that UCSB’s ROTC program will be spared for the time being, along with the officer training programs at 13 other schools across the country. The UCSB program, which dates back to 1947, was slated to be cut as of September 2015 in response to budget concerns. Campus administrators reacted with quiet — and not so quiet — outrage at the suddenness with which the cuts were announced as well as the cuts themselves. In response to the political backlash, military brass has reconsidered and is placing the UCSB program — as well as the other 12 — on probation instead. “We don’t know exactly what that means now and what we’ll have to do to get off of it, but probation is better than closure,” commented Lt. Col. Greg Davis, commander of the campus ROTC program. Davis said 65 students are currently enrolled in the ROTC program, which graduates about 10-12 commissioned cont’d page 15  officers a year.

Last Week’s Showdowns Got Silly, Then Serious

N

BY N I C K W E L S H

o, this was not the latest socially engineered alternative transportation scheme to be inflicted on unsuspecting motorists by utopian anti-car crusaders at City Hall. Rather, it was a showdown between City Administrator Jim Armstrong and his assistant Marcelo López as part of a United Way fundraiser that took place last Thursday in the Public Works yard by Garden and Ortega streets. López showed up theatrically late, draped in a gaudy Oakland Raiders robe and wearing a black beret as the Rocky theme song blared over a PA system. López, who vowed to make short shrift of his giggling boss, peeled off his robe to reveal the tuxedo shirt and monogrammed scarf he was wearing underneath. “I was issued a formal challenge,” López said, explaining his choice of formal wear. López got off to a fast lead in his Big Wheel–type contraption, but lost control in the second lap, allowing Armstrong to come from behind and win easily. Armstrong explained afterward he banked on López making a “rookie” mistake that would allow him to win. On a less lighthearted note, Armstrong sent a letter to Caltrans district director Tim Gubbins last week demanding to know if and when he would address concerns expressed by the City Planning Commission about the Highway  widening project and highoccupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in a three-page letter it sent to Gubbins on September 16. Caltrans district spokesperson Jim Shivers said that the Planning Commission would be sent a copy of the letter currently being worked on by statewide Caltrans director Malcolm Dougherty. Shivers said he could not say when that letter would be released. The Planning Commission expressed serious reservations about the adequacy of the draft environmental impact report Caltrans prepared for the $500 million expansion project, objecting that the document failed

to detail the increased congestion the freeway expansion would exacerbate at interchanges between Mission and Las Positas and on the city streets in that area as well. The commissioners also insisted Caltrans needed to incorporate the widening of the railroad bridge by the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge as part of the project definition if Caltrans wanted City Hall to sign off on the permits. Without that bridge widening, city traffic engineers have expressed alarm that southbound traffic on Cabrillo Boulevard will back up to an unacceptable degree. Caltrans — and officials with the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments — have insisted that the bridgewidening work will get done but have refused thus far to include it into the official project description, explaining that to do so would cause more delay. Shivers said Caltrans officials will be meeting this week with city and county officials on the proposed project, as well as with representatives of Common Sense , which represents Montecitans intent on preserving the existing left-lane on- and off-ramps by the Cabrillo-Hot Springs interchange. This summer, Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider went to Sacramento with a Common Sense  delegation, threatening to withhold support if these changes weren’t made. Last week, Goleta Mayor Roger Aceves went to Sacramento — accompanied by S.B. Chamber of Commerce executive Ken Oplinger — urging Caltrans to proceed with the freeway widening posthaste and to resist further delays. Shivers said that Caltrans would meet this week with Common Sense  representatives to hash out reports detailing accidents and collisions taking place at the debated interchange. Caltrans insists the left-turn off-ramps are inherently unsafe because they defy driver expectation. Common Sense  insists that few of the accidents taking place near the Cabrillo off-ramp had anything to do with it ■ being a left-lane exit.

Hot Springs Deal Finalized

It took more than a year and a half of legal and logistical wrangling, but the deal to save Hot Springs Canyon above Montecito for public use is finally done. On Friday, November 15, the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County will pass the deed for 422 acres of the 462-acre property to the U.S. Forest Service, which will manage the property as part of the contiguous Los Padres National Forest. The Land Trust will retain ownership of the remaining 40 acres, as they were “unsuccessful in negotiating a water well agreement on terms that would be acceptable to the Montecito Water District,” according to the trust’s director Michael Feeney, who had to spend about $60,000 in unexpected legal costs to get to this point. “Who would have thought it would be so challenging to buy and donate a key piece of land to the American people?” he later said in a prepared statement. The Land Trust had launched a fundraising campaign in 2011 to buy the 462 acres from the property’s longtime owners — the McCaslin Family — for $7.9 million. Zoning in the area would have allowed the development of six homes, as well as a private resort and spa. “Historically, we have not wanted nor intended to be in the land-ownership business,” Feeney said of the remaining 40 acres. The most notable exception is the Arroyo Hondo Preserve on the Gaviota Coast, which the trust manages solely. The other properties it owns, the Coronado Butterfly Preserve in Goleta, and part of the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve, are managed jointly by a number of agencies. The eagerly awaited Hot Springs deal will be celebrated during a ceremony next Friday, at which Land Trust President Warren Miller, Los Padres National Forest Supervisor Peggy Hernandez, Santa Barbara County Supervisor Salud Carbajal, and Montecito Trails Foundation President Bobbi King will be present among those who contributed to the fundraising campaign. “The story does not end here,” Feeney said in his statement, explaining that as new property owners of an area popular with hikers, the Land Trust is looking to raise $100,000 and create an annual revenue stream for trail maintenance, creek protection, fire prevention, and other management tasks. — Tyler Hayden and Matt Kettmann

Santa Barbara City College received national recognition this week as Prof. Manou Eskandari, chair of its Political Science department, was named Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Eskandari, the only professor in California to receive the award, will head to Washington, D.C., to accept the honor. “It’s another feather in the cap for the college,” Eskandari said, adding he would like to receive the award for City College, not just for himself. Eskandari is a big believer in SBCC — both of his children attended — because of the “high level of education in a relaxed atmosphere.” During his 20 years there, he founded the Middle East Studies program and brought a chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor society for two-year colleges, to the campus. Anxieties surrounding the renewal process of Santa Barbara Charter School were all but quelled at Tuesday’s school board meeting. After considerable tension plagued the two October meetings, ongoing discussion between district officials and charter school directors is “making great progress,” Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Emilio Handall said in an update. Conditions outlined in district staff’s recommendations included better financial projections, a Common Core transition plan, examining the school’s admission process, and balancing its ethnic demographics. Per these discussions, both sides agreed to postpone the vote until the next board meeting on 12/10. County public health administrators are advocating to get e-cigarettes off of school campuses. Dawn Dunn, who runs the county tobacco-prevention program, brought Hookah Pens to Tuesday’s Santa Barbara school board meeting to show boardmembers that the bright colored gadgets look like flashy pens. “Students have these on campuses … They’re not harmless,” she said. Dunn added that the products are

relatively odorless, are difficult to identify, and can be used to vaporize other substances. Like normal cigarettes, e-cigarettes can be purchased over the counter by anyone 18 years old or older. Boardmembers will discuss adding e-cigarettes to their antitobacco policy at their December meeting. PAU L WELLM AN FI LE PHOTO

Though Santa Barbara school district administrators hoped to distribute more than 1,000 iPads (pictured) before winter break, the oneto-one pilot program will now likely begin in January. Logistics including installing additional access points and requesting agreements with parents still need to be put in place. Students at the four schools chosen to participate — Washington, Adams, and Franklin elementary schools and La Cuesta High School — will have three options: lease a tablet for $20/month for 3 years, provide their own tablet, or use one purchased by the district. Recent surveys found that Washington was the only school in which a majority of parents indicated they wanted their student to use a district-purchased tablet. A few of the boardmembers expressed concern over the discrepancy because Washington has a higher-income population. ■

health to the overall effect the emissions would have on climate change. According to the federal Environmental Protection Agency, 62,000 metric tons per year — the figure approved by the Planning Commission — is the equivalent to the emissions from 12,900 cars. Ten thousand metric tons equals just over 2,000 cars. “There’s certainly no doubt in my mind that global warming is real and has been accelerated by human activity, particularly the burning of fossil fuels,” said rd District Supervisor Doreen Farr, who voted in favor of the stricter threshold. Farr noted that she has visited the proposed site and understood the economic incentives, but that greenhouse-gas emissions’ environmental toll required the county to “pick up the pace.” First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal and nd District Supervisor Janet Wolf, who each voted for the 10,000-metric-tons figure, both stressed the need for the county to “balance” its economic interests with its environmental concerns. In arguing the case for Santa Maria Energy, Beth Marino, the company’s vice president of legal and corporate affairs, said imposing the 10,000-tons-per-year threshold would make Santa Barbara County seem inhospitable to business. “We live in this community, and we take our responsibilities seriously,” she said, referring to the berms surrounding the facility and its live monitoring system and environmental protections. “No single project can be held solely responsible for climate change,” she said. On Wednesday morning, Poole expanded on his previous statement, highlighting the vote’s effect on the project. “We do know that the rate and number of jobs created will be impacted, the amount of taxes paid will be reduced, and the amount of supports for worthy community causes will also be reduced,” he said. Joining Adam in voting against the stricter limit was Lavagnino, visibly tweaked by the EDC for not reaching out to him. “I didn’t get a phone call; I didn’t get an email; I didn’t get a

contact from anybody at the EDC,” he said. “They just felt like, ‘It doesn’t matter. We’ve got our votes. We’ve got this thing in the bag. We’re not going to talk,’” Lavagnino continued, saying he believes in climate change. “I think we do need alternative energy. But how many wind projects have been brought before us? How many solar projects? How many wave technology projects? “You’re not hurting an oil company today. You’re hurting a community,” he went on, noting several of the nonprofits that Santa Maria Energy contributes to. Lavagnino also admitted that he has “softened considerably” on social issues like programs for the homeless and mentally ill, but that those services require funding that revenue from the project could generate. And forcing the company, Lavagnino said, to spend $500,000 a year on reduction credits — which don’t have to be purchased from California companies and aren’t currently available in-county — isn’t right. “Don’t cost this county millions of dollars so we can go plant trees in another state,” he said. Tuesday’s vote didn’t set an official county standard, but it could make the case for the 10,000-ton mark stronger for future projects. For instance, before the supervisors dealt with Santa Maria Energy, they discussed 85 emergency 15-foot-long seep cans recently installed by Pacific Coast Energy Company, an oil company whose own 96 cyclic steam injection wells — approved in 2006 — sit right next door to Santa Maria Energy’s proposed wells at the Orcutt Oil Field. According to the county, steam injection is believed to exacerbate the occurrence of naturally occurring seeps, and although Pacific Coast Energy Company has since taken action to prevent 90 percent of new leaks, some supervisors questioned if Santa Maria Energy’s new wells could seep, too. Buried under that discussion was Pacific Coast Energy Company’s recent application for 96 more steam injection wells. ■

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s a Dog …

DRAWING A LINE IN THE SKY: The good

guys clearly won at Tuesday night’s marathon showdown over the biggest oil development project to hit Santa Barbara County in eons. What wasn’t nearly so clear was who the bad guys were. When it was over, I almost felt sorry for Santa Maria Energy, which has made the most convincing case imaginable that it’s not really a big bad oil company at all, but “just folks.” Corporate vice president Beth Marino came across so down-home, so real, and so refreshingly un-slick that I wanted to reach through my TV set and give her a hug. And the company’s logo — which featured an amber sun-infused honeycomb — got my warm-andfuzzies tingling. But like many an oil company trying to do business in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria Energy found itself undone by fatally bad timing. First, it should be noted that nobody is stopping Santa Maria Energy from pumping up to 3,000 barrels of oil a day out of the 110 new oil wells it’s gotten approval to sink on an already industrialized patch of land near Orcutt. It can and it will. (For details, read Lyz Hoffman’s news article on page 10.) The only dispute was how much air pollution — specifically greenhouse gases — the project should be allowed to emit without doing anything about it. The project will generate about 87,000 metric tons of such gases a year. That’s a lot. Santa Maria Energy is proposing to mitigate and to offset about 25,000 tons

worth. It should be noted that’s twice as much as the company is legally required to under California’s 2006 climate-change law AB 32. But the glass-is-half-empty crowd was hardly impressed, pointing out that the proposed project would have the same effect on the county’s air as 17,000 additional cars on the road. Led by the Environmental Defense Center, a coalition of environmental groups insisted that Santa Maria Energy had to do more. They pointed out that the county’s line-in-the-sand threshold for greenhouse gas emissions has traditionally been 10,000 metric tons a year. That’s not just what Santa Barbara has used, they noted; it’s what San Luis Obispo County and the Bay Area air pollution control district have insisted upon, as well. Not since Venoco put its ill-fated oil initiative on the Carpinteria ballot a month before the BP oil disaster exploded in the Gulf of Mexico a few years ago has any oil company been afflicted with such disastrous timing as Santa Maria Energy. There probably is no “good” time to seek special dispensation to dump 62,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases into our air basin. But now is about the worst. Greenhouse gases don’t make people cough and wheeze as do pollutants like diesel particulates or ozone precursors; instead they fuel climate rage, euphemistically referred to these days as “climate change.” The wholesale violence just inflicted by Über Storm Haiyan on the people of the Philippines makes it a whole lot harder to pretend climate change

is some hoax perpetrated by the Chicken Littles and eco-hysterics out there. It’s true the Philippines have always served as the trailer park of the South Pacific, constantly getting laid to waste by one typhoon or another. But this one is bigger and faster — with speeds clocking in as fast as 230 miles an hour — than anything in recorded history. As the oceans absorb more heat, the meteorologists tell us, the frequency and ferocity of such storms will only increase. The biggest reason an engaging slob like New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie is considered presidential material is his heroic response to last year’s Hurricane Sandy — yet another celebrity über storm.Yes, nature has always been prone to volatile mood swings. But now it’s positively bipolar and very much off its meds. Nor did it help Santa Maria Energy’s case that the hundreds of scientists making up the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change just released yet another report detail-

ing how dire the situation has grown. Since the 1880s, the planet’s temperature has risen about 1.5 degrees because there’s more greenhouse gas in the atmosphere than any time in the past 800,000 years. If the global thermometer rises by 2.7-8.1 degrees, we’re looking at a sea-level rise of 10-32 inches. Since 2011, the United States has experienced 25 extreme weather events that cost $1 billion or more each. The drought in Russia wiped out one-quarter of its 2012 grain harvest. And according to a think tank commissioned

by the German government, extreme weather killed 530,000 people worldwide last year. Supervisor Steve Lavagnino’s passionate soliloquy on behalf of Santa Maria — so desperate, so eloquent, so raw — was undeniably one of the most compelling speeches I’ve ever seen in the supervisors’ chambers. But when I heard it will only cost the company an extra 60 cents a barrel to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions down to the 10,000-ton threshold, I suddenly became a lot less mesmerized. The total price tag tossed around at the supervisors’ meeting was half-a-million bucks a year. That sounds like a big number. But not nearly as big as the $110 million a year in revenues that Santa Maria Energy could generate at maximum production so long as oil sells for $100 a barrel. When the vote finally came down to require Santa Maria Energy to do more, I still wanted to give Beth Marino a hug. She seemed like a nice person. Her project can still go forward, creating much-needed jobs and generating muchneeded tax revenues. But sadly, climate change is not a figment of anybody’s imagination. To give Santa Maria Energy a pollution break in this context would have been insanity and would have set an insane precedent for subsequent energy proposals. The supervisors needed to draw a line in the sand by drawing a line in the sky. Like I say, there were no bad guys. Maybe there were no good guys either. Maybe this once, we all won. — Nick Welsh

Nicholas Carl Reich // – //

Nick Reich was born in Chicago, IL to George and Helen Reich on Feb. , . He passed away on Oct. ,  after a twoyear battle with cancer of the esophagus. Nick and his sister, Toni, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated from Tennyson High School in Hayward in  and served in the US Army during the Vietnam War as a medical corpsman, delivering babies and tending the wounded at Ft. Huachuca, AZ. Nick was known for his love of animals, his extensive collection of popular music, and his love of reading, particularly the works of Stephen King. In , he married Lynn Beach and they had one daughter, Heather. In , Nick moved to Santa Barbara to enter the men’s residential recovery program at the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission. Nick credits this program with saving his life, and through it he renewed his faith in Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Nick celebrated over  years of sobriety from his alcohol addiction. After graduating from the program, Nick worked at the Rescue Mission for a number of years as the night security guard. The Rescue Mission was his home and his family for almost  years. In , Nick was diagnosed with cancer. His sister, Toni Percival, and her husband, Frank, cared for him through his surgery and treatments until

August  when he relocated to Mokelumne Hill in northern California, a town he quickly grew to love. He was also happy to be closer to his wife, Lynn, daughter, Heather McCoy, sonin-law Shilo McCoy, and two granddaughters, Chloe and Madylin McCoy. Nick’s death came less than a year after the passing of his mother, Helen Reich Williams. His father, George, passed away in . Nick is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Memorial services in Santa Barbara will be held at Christ the King Episcopal Church,  Hollister Ave., on Saturday, November  at : pm.

Katherine devoted her time to raising her three children, John, Thomas, and Holly. She returned to teaching at All Saints-by-theSea Parish School and taught first grade at the Isla Vista School for  years. Katherine was a lifelong learner who held a passion for music, literature, and the arts. She sang in the All Saints church choir and the Santa Barbara Opera Chorus. Throughout her life, Katherine gave selflessly to her family, friends, and students. She is survived by her husband R. Deming Isaacson, three children John, Thomas, Holly, four grandchildren Anton, Ibbie, Katherine, Candice, her mother Rosemary R. Laughlin, and siblings Herbert Laughlin Jr., Margaret (Peggy) C.

Herbert William Fredlund, , was born in Alhambra, California, on August , . His family moved to Santa Barbara where he attended McKinnley Elementary, Santa Barbara Junior High, and Santa Barbara High Schools. While in school he excelled in instrumental music and it was music that he made his life’s work. When he was  the United States went to war and he joined the Coast Guard. He was put into the band and was transferred to San Francisco. During a rehearsal he was asked if he could play piano for the women’s choir and he fell in love with the lead soprano even though she couldn’t keep the beat. When he told her that, she smacked him, and that was that. They met in April, were

engaged in August, and Herb and Dorothy Lillian Selina were married in October of . In November, Herb set to sea with the Coast Guard where he was clerk to the ship’s Chaplain on a Hospital vessel. He played piano for services. He was a natural sailor and spent his time on the ship while not working walking the decks and hanging over the edge. He was never seasick in his life and from that time loved being on the water. After his war time service Herb collected his wife and new daughter, Nancy Jean, from Bristol, CT, and returned to Santa Barbara. He returned to college on the G.I. Bill and graduated from the Riviera campus of Santa Barbara College which later became the University of California, Santa Barbara. While in Santa Barbara they lived at Hoff Heights where, second daughter, Ann Elizabeth was born. He began teaching in Calistoga, California, where son, Herbert William, Jr., was born; then Barstow, California, where daughter, Meredith Selina, was born; San Bernardino; and returned to Santa Barbara where son, James Brewster, was born. He taught at La Cumbre Jr. High School for  years, retiring in . While the family was in Barstow, Herb commuted to Redlands University, where he earned his Master’s Degree in clarinet performance. Teaching music was Herb’s job and he did it with grace and fun. He had so much to say about being a music teacher that he wrote a book about the experience. But, first and foremost, Herb was a musician and there was not an instrument he could not play within a few hours. He was much in demand as a pianist and played with many ensembles on clarinet and sax. He was offered a job with the Johnny Carson band but turned it down because he didn’t think it would last and he had  children to support. For years he played every Saturday night at the Cabrillo Recreation Center dances with “Joe, and the Kilowatts” dance band. Herb was a man of many talents. He was a visual artist as well as a musician and he was a gifted writer. He had many passions one of which was sailing and being on the ocean. He was the proud owner of several boats and spent most of his leisure

time on the water with his family. He had the true Viking mentality and would sail off into the horizon, not returning until he just happened to return. He was very active and rode his bicycle every morning well into his ’s. He loved the out of doors and he loved any kind of travel. He made it his goal to take his children to every State and he would plan cross country trips accordingly. He was active with both his sons in the Boy Scouts and was part of the leadership of Boy Scout Troop  where he participated in all the activities. After his retirement from teaching he became increasingly involved in the local chapter of the American Federation of Music where he served as VicePresident for many years and as President for a few months before retiring. Herb is survived by four of his five children; Nancy Jean McCradie from Green Valley Lake, and Santa Barbara, California, Herbert William Fredlund, Jr., of Orcutt, California; Meredith Selina Sedgwick of Santa Barbara, California; and James Brewster Fredlund of Buckeye, Arizona. Preceding him is his wife of  years, Dorothy Lillian Fredlund, who passed on in , and his daughter, Ann Elizabeth Staffeld of Seattle, Washington, who passed on in . Herb is also survived by his  grandchildren, and  great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on November ,  at : at the Goleta location of Welch-Ryce-Haider;  Ward Drive; Santa Barbara, CA .

ork Millner, my writing mentor whom I adored,

passed away on August 13. I say “my” writing mentor because I felt a close connection to him, but clearly he was not just mine. His memorial service last month was a testament to that. Dozens of friends, family members, colleagues, and former writing students all came to pay tribute to him. Cork touched each of us in different ways, but it was clear we shared a gratitude for having had him in our lives. The day of the service couldn’t have been more spectacular. The sun rose with aplomb, casting a blaze of color across Santa Barbara’s morning sky, like the richness that Cork’s charm and colorful personality had added to our lives. As we gathered inside the cemetery’s intimate chapel, we were wrapped in Cork’s favorite Celtic harp music, then reminded by Reverend Miriam Lindbeck, Cork’s longtime friend and former writing student, of all the things we loved about him. Cork was “old-school stoic,” strong and private, yet sensitive and open. He loved fine wine, fine cars, and fine writing. He was appreciative of humor — especially his own, which was wry and occasionally acerbic. He was dapper, confident, hardworking, and fiercely proud of his family and his military service, which included 850 aircraft-carrier landings. And then, of course, there was his name. Cork came from humble beginnings in Kansas. He was born Clayton Linville Millner, but when he was a young boy his father dubbed him a “real corker.” The name stuck, and the rest is history … with a few twists and turns along the way. After attending Kansas State University, he joined the Naval Air Cadet program, where he worked his way up to lieutenant commander. For 22 years he was known as “Corky,” a Navy pilot with some of the steadiest hands around. When he later launched his writing career and became a wine aficionado, he simply went by Cork, the perfect name for a self-proclaimed wine snob. Then, after

receiving his master’s degree in dramatic arts from UCSB, he began teaching and writing. Like many, I feel a tremendous loss with Cork’s passing, but I’m filled with gratitude, too. Because of Cork Millner, I am a professional writer and an author. Cork believed in me and championed my work, even when I doubted it myself. If it hadn’t been for Cork’s red pen filled with love, support, and generosity, I’d still be dreaming about being a writer instead of actually becoming one. Feeling nostalgic, I pored through piles of manuscripts Cork had edited for me, smiling at the comments he had scrawled in the margins with his red pen. Sometimes it was just a word or two like “clever lead” or “powerful imagery.” Sometimes it was a full page. One of his most meaningful comments, written when I was just starting out, simply said,“You write in pictures.” It forever changed the way I thought about my writing. I am certain that the hundreds, if not thousands, of writers who took Cork’s classes or workshops at Santa Barbara City College or the Santa Barbara Writers Conference during his more than 30 years of teaching were inspired by Cork and the encouragement he wrote in red in the margins of their manuscripts. After the throat-catching “Taps” during his Military Honors and the presentation of the flag to his family, as a final homage, I placed a red pen in his memorial plot in the Sunrise Urn Garden. My note to him simply said, “Cork, The love and generosity that filled your red pen will never be forgotten.” Two fellow writers, Kaye Walters and Nancy MacMillan, similarly moved, added small cards with covers of their recently published books, thanking him for his support. Afterward, a group of us hugged, cried, laughed, took pictures, then joined his family for a wake at his beloved polo fields in Carpinteria, where we all popped the cork for Cork. Here’s to you, Cork Millner, for making a profound difference in all of our lives.

he Biltmore is a dreamy destination for many couples, but I’ll bet most of them aren’t in their nineties, as my parents are. This year marks their 75th wedding anniversary! My parents, Joe and Theresa Cicinelli, made Santa Barbara their home a little over one year ago. My husband and I urged them to move here sooner, but Dad was determined to stay in Palm Desert as long as he could play golf. His bad hip ended his passion at the age of 95, and they made the move. My brother and I picked the Biltmore for a romantic, two-day getaway for them. They married on November 12, 1938 — still in love. — Gianna Cicinelli Fields, S.B.

9-1-1 Uh-Oh

C

alling 9-1-1 is not what it used to be. A while ago I had difficulty breathing, so I dialed 9-1-1, and American Medical Response (AMR) arrived along with the fire trucks. As I have Medicare Part A but not Part B, which covers emergency response, I later received a bill from AMR for $1,550. When I was unable to pay this bill, AMR sold it to a collection agency in Texas for pennies on the dollar. The agency has been hounding me for a slightly smaller payment, but it’s still nothing I can afford. I think 9-1-1 calls should be exempt from this kind of bundling and that AMR should let me pay this bill at what

it sold for. I cannot write off this bill as a tax loss; I am 87 years old with no income except SSI. Perhaps President Obama could make a slight change in the Affordable Care Act to correct this. As a footnote: I learned at the hospital that I had bronchitis and wouldn’t have to stay overnight. I was wearing pajamas, socks, a dressing gown, but no shoes or hat. I had $10 in my wallet. Considering the rain earlier, my bronchitis, and the freeway overpass to reconnoiter, maybe $10 would get me close to my home, three miles away? The cab driver, after I explained, was nice enough to take me all the way. I have often wondered, though, if I hadn’t had the $10, whether Part B would include not just to the hospital but — John Winfield, S.B. also the fro.

The ’60s Revisited

I’M REVISITING THEM, TOO: Gerry DeWitt’s

long-running The Sixties Revisited radio show had a theme that went: “It’s the same old song, but with a different meaning since you’ve been gone …” From 1976 to 2001, Gerry’s show aired on local airwaves, first on KTYD, with the Four Tops’ 1965 Motown theme providing bittersweet memories of wonderful music and turbulent times. “The show lasted two-and-a-half times as long as the ’60s did,” Gerry reminded me when we talked the other day. He’s collecting copies of those shows and sent me one featuring Walter Cronkite’s sounds of the 1960s, including what Gerry terms Cronkite’s “heart-wrenching collage of the sounds of that weekend in November” when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The 50th anniversary of the November 22, 1963, day of infamy looms next week, bringing a “potpourri of pain” for those doomed to remember those horrific events “and the psychological impact they would have on a generation whose youthful ideals were shattered in the course of a few short seconds,” Gerry said. ELECTION, SMELECKSHUN: Someday they’ll have an election, and no one will come. Look, all you had to do to vote in last week’s Santa Barbara City Council election was put a couple of marks on the ballot the city mailed you, sign your name, and stick it in the mail. But only 38.3

percent of city voters managed to find time or interest to do that. An election with no issues? Maybe, but the voting could have a lot to do with who’s going to battle for Congress when Representative Lois Capps decides to retire to the Upper Eastside. But she shows no sign of leaving the lunatic asylum that’s the House of unRepresentatives, and when I saw her last week, she said she’s running in 2014. It can’t be a lot of fun for Capps, a moderate Democrat outnumbered by Republicans, Tea Partyers, and other assorted types, many of whom seem to hate the government they were elected to be a part of. Only in America can you base a political movement on being against health care for the very people you represent. Crazy as our nation’s Capitol is, a good many Santa Barbarans, restless as only political types can be, appear anxious to sit in the House, despite its cellar-dwelling polls. Three councilmembers, including one who was just elected, seem anxious to pounce on the seat when Lois Capps retires. Term limits, both on the City Council and State Legislature, have created an endless game of musical chairs. Mayor Helene Schneider, who raised over $115,000 against weak opposition and surely has bucks left over, has long been seen as itching to move up. Having been reelected last week, she’ll be termed out in four years. What then? A run at Congress? As a fellow Democrat, she’d never challenge Capps. Standing in her way is st Dis-

trict Supervisor Salud Carbajal, long considered Capps’s heir apparent, with close contacts with fellow Democrats in Washington, D.C. If Salud gets Capps’s vacated seat, then political observers (where would we be without them?) see Schneider vying for his vacant supervisorial chair. Gregg Hart ran a gangbuster campaign to get elected to the council last week, spending more than $120,000, a new record and perhaps has some left over for future electoral adventures. Hart, who served two council terms (19962003), looks to some like a guy with a yen for the mayor’s gavel or a seat in the Legislature or Congress. Cracked ex-councilmember (1982-1993) Gerry DeWitt about last week’s election: “We replaced a bald, middle-aged, union-backed councilman who supported high-density development and bulb-outs whose initials are GH with another bald, middle-aged, union-backed candidate who supports high-density development and bulb-outs whose initials are GH. All that money and time, for what?” Translation: Grant House was termed out, replaced by Gregg Hart. (The peeple have spoke.) Forecast: clouds with a chance of “smartgrowth” density storms and freeway hail. Hart and Schneider sharply disagree on freeway plans, and the mayor didn’t endorse him. Some also speculate that former councilmember Das Williams, an ambitious Democrat, might be interested in a shot at Congress when he’s

CALLING ALL CRUISES: S.B. Channelkeeper continues to test the wake behind cruise ships for evidence of unwanted dumping — as seen below in the vial held by Jenna Driscoll. The organization’s Ben Pitterle (right) also radios each captain to remind them they have entered the voluntary no-dumping zone, which extends 12 miles from the City of Santa Barbara. “I really believe this is effective,” said Pitterle, “because we are present.”

THE

cruise-shiP Question

Is There Anything Bad About Boosting Visits to Santa Barbara?

E

arly one October morning, hours before the sun and most of California had risen, a small boat with a few bundled, coffeesipping souls onboard skipped across invisible swells into the blank horizon. Above in the pitch-black sky, the stars shone so brightly that they didn’t twinkle, proving a brilliant contrast to the earthly streetlights of Santa Barbara, which glowed a muted yellow. But the most magical illumination suddenly came into view a few miles away on the surface of the sea, at first looking like a castle made of diamonds, but eventually emerging as the floating skyscraper that it was. The Sapphire Princess, one of the many cruise ships that now visit Santa Barbara every year, was the early-morning target for the crew of the R/V Channelkeeper, the research vessel owned and operated by Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, a clean-water advocacy organization. The goal was to remind the Sapphire’s bridge that they’d breached the City of Santa Barbara’s 12-mile boundary and entered the zone where all cruise ship captains promise to not dump any waste. The city’s Waterfront Department set new precedent by demanding that cruise-ship captains sign that agreement — which is much stricter than the threemile no-dumping zone demanded by state law — but the only group making sure that the ships adhere to the contract so far has been Channelkeeper, which quietly started testing the wake of the ships a few years back, recently added a thermal camera to its expanding toolkit, and is now focused on making its presence even more known.

“Sapphire Princess, Sapphire Princess, Sapphire Princess. This is R/V Channelkeeper,” beckoned Ben Pitterle, marine program director, into the radio. “We’d like to welcome you to the Santa Barbara Channel, and politely remind you that you have entered the voluntary no-discharge zone.” “Yes, we are 100 percent aware,” replied the Sapphire’s captain immediately and pleasantly.“All of our discharges are closed and our incinerators are off.” As the ship — a temporary vacation home for more than 2,600 people and 1,100 crew members, along with the 160,000 or so gallons of sewage generated each day — began picking up speed toward the coastline, the R/V Channelkeeper crew followed closely behind, stopping sporadically to dip empty vials into the ship’s wake and collect seawater that would be analyzed for any evidence of dumping. No one actually expects the Sapphire or other ships to violate the agreement — the conse-

quences of being banned from Santa Barbara and enduring the ensuing marketing nightmare would be severe — and Pitterle readily admits that finding such a violation is close to impossible. “Track a cruise ship’s discharge in the middle of the night in the middle of the ocean?” asked Pitterle, as his colleagues Penny Owens and Jenna Driscoll worked on getting more samples.“It’s not an easy thing to do.” That’s why now, as cruise ships’ presence skyrocketed to 22 visits in 2013 with nearly 30 already planned for 2014, Channelkeeper is shifting to become a visible and vocal watchdog of these floating cities, all the while balancing the overwhelming sentiment that the ships are a perfectly timed blessing for all types of commerce throughout downtown Santa Barbara and beyond.“The point is not to drive away cruise ships or the business that comes from them,” said Pitterle. “It’s more so that they know people do care about the ocean here and that we’re watching them.” As such, Channelkeeper finds itself on the front lines of what’s quickly become one of Santa Barbara’s most talked-about developments in recent years. Right now, with a rather stunning degree of unanimity for a region rarely tepid about civic debates, the increased presence of cruise ships is getting a nearly universal thumbs-up. The enhanced tourism is good for business, in part because the Waterfront Department has handled its scheduling so strategically, restricting visits to the “shoulder seasons” of spring and fall and on otherwise slower weekdays. And even though cruise-ship visitors don’t stay in hotels, often don’t eat in town (because meals tend to be free onboard), and spend less than the average tourist, the region’s tourism boosters

ALL GOOD ALL THE TIME?

So if the rise of cruise ships in Santa Barbara is like the goose that lays the golden eggs on steroids, what in the world should anyone be concerned about? Plenty, according to Kira Redmond, who, before becoming the executive director of Santa Barbara Channelkeeper in 2004, worked for Bluewater Network to tighten environmental regulations on cruise ships at both the state and federal level. That was a major cause in the 1990s, due to whistle-blower cases against some of the major cruise lines for dumping their oil and wastewater illegally, and Redmond was eventually successful in getting California to pass stricter regulations than the rest of the country. But problems didn’t disappear overnight, and, in 2002, Carnival’s Crystal Harmony was found to be dumping 36,000 gallons of treated bilge, treated sewage, and gray water into the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, despite the captain signing a declaration, much like Santa Barbara’s, promising not to. It wasn’t technically illegal, but sanctuary officials barred the ship

Cruise Captain Contract Here is the wording of the “Environmental Declaration” that all cruise ship captains must sign if they would like to land passengers in Santa Barbara:

I declare that no discharge of garbage, treated sewage or grey water (TSG) effluent, nor any conventional sewage or grey water shall occur within twelve nautical miles from the City of Santa Barbara. l also declare that the ship’s incinerator will not be used within such limits. I further declare that should any such discharge of garbage, sewage or grey water occur, or should the incinerator be operated within said limit, whether intentional or accidental, I will notify Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol at (805) 564-5530 within 24 hours as to the nature, volume, time, duration and location of the discharge or incinerator operation. from ever returning and won’t be letting any Carnival ship return until 2017. When Redmond was hired by Channelkeeper in 2004, the cruise ships had just started coming to Santa Barbara, but the issue was already a topic of interest for the nonprofit’s supporters.“That was my expertise, so I looked into it,” said Redmond, who applauded the city for making the captains sign a declaration, but explained, “There was no one monitoring, so the Waterfront Department is never going to know if there was a violation unless the cruise ship company tells on itself, which is where Channelkeeper came in.” Currently, Channelkeeper does not receive any money from the city for their efforts, though everyone asked thought that was an interesting proposition. It wouldn’t be unlike the City of Goleta paying the organization to monitor its creeks or the County of Santa Barbara funding the beach bacteria counts, except that the city’s been sued by Channelkeeper in recent years, so the bad blood lingers a bit. That said, the Waterfront Department readily shares the schedules with Channelkeeper as well as additional info, like coordinates and radio channels. Said Pitterle,“We view the city and, from what they’ve told us, they view us as partners.” To date, Channelkeeper hasn’t caught any ships violating the agreement, and the Waterfront Department has also ensured that anything questionable gets evaluated. For instance, when a plume of smoke was visible atop one of the cruise ships a couple of months ago, the Air Pollution Control District was called to investigate. “The technician went onto the ship, into the engine room, met with the engineer, looked at all the gauges, and found the emissions to be in compliance,” said Kronman, who also had someone from the county’s Public Health Department check out a possible virus on another ship, a completely different type of environmental issue that also turned out to be a false alarm.“We take this stuff very seriously,” said Kronman. Altogether, Redmond believes that the industry as a whole has greatly improved their environmental record over the past decade. “No question about it,” she said. “At first it was more greenwashing, but they have actually done quite a bit to improve their environmental performance.” In agreement is David Pelkin, director of public affairs for the Cruise Lines International Association, who explained in an email that many of the industry’s practices, from their advanced wastewater-treatment systems to the gas scrubbers they use to fight air emissions, are actually “more protective” than what’s required by law.“The industry has a vested interest in protecting the global ocean environment not only because it is the responsible thing to do, but also because clean oceans

and beaches are essential to the cruise experience,” said Pelkin. Nonetheless, disasters happen — see: recent and repeated headlines about 2012’s Costa Concordia crash off the coast of Italy — and environmental violations do still occur, according to Friends of the Earth, which publishes an eco-report card on the cruise industry every year. In 2013, the cruise ships coming to Santa Barbara in 2014 posted a pretty mixed record: Princess Cruises scored a B overall, with an A for water-quality compliance and a B− in both sewage treatment and air-pollution reduction; Celebrity scored a C+, with an A for sewage and D for air pollution; and Crystal got Fs across the board. A fourth liner coming in 2014, the comparably small and ultra-luxury Azamara Quest, is not tracked. Despite the advancements in recent years, it seems that there may still be room for improvement, at least according to Friends of the Earth, which actually took over Bluewater Network after Redmond left. “We are not outright opposed to these cruise ships coming here, but we do want to ensure that they are not having an increased impact on the channel,” said Redmond. “We want to be sure that we are present and watching, and we’re thinking and hoping that has a deterrent effect. Ideally,” she continued,“we would detect anything illicit that might happen if it did. I don’t think it will, and I hope it won’t, but we need to be out there making sure and doing the best job we can to do that.”

AESTHETIC ALARM?

With business booming and the environmental concerns being cared for, the only lingering concern that may one day arise over cruise ships could be the aesthetics of having such beastly boats dominate the views of our shoreline. Though thoroughly pleased with the present state of affairs, Mayor Helene Schneider appreciates that could develop as an issue in the years to come, explaining, “If there was one there all the time, it would get a little tiring to see such a huge ship in the channel.” It would probably be a much more pressing concern if Santa Barbara’s harbor was like its sister city, Kotor, Montenegro — where the mayor witnessed cruise ships pull right up to the dock, essentially dropping a 12-story building in town.“That shocks you,” said Schneider. Like everyone else’s, her concerns revolve around more practical issues, like occasional cruise-related traffic on Cabrillo Boulevard and the potential for accidental spills. “The Santa Barbara Channel is a unique, special, and very biologically important place,” said the mayor. “The last thing we want to do is spoil it.”

Genghis Khan Although Genghis Khan died in 1227, his name is well remembered — either as a brutal conqueror or a revered figure. What he is universally credited with, however, is the massive expansion of the Mongol empire, which came to encompass much of Eurasia. In an ode to the nomads of the region, Australian adventurer Tim Cope retraced Khan’s 6,000mile trek on horseback from Mongolia to Hungary. It was a three-year endeavor that took him across wolf-infested plateaus, the bone-chilling Eurasian steppe, and blistering deserts. Santa Barbarans can hear firsthand about his experience when Cope comes to town with his multimedia presentation of his harrowing expedition, On the Trail of Genghis Khan: An Epic Journey Through the Land of the Nomads. Monday, November 18, 8 p.m., UCSB’s Campbell Hall. Cost: $15 (general), $10 (students). For more information, call 893-3535 or visit artsandlectures.sa.ucsb.edu. — Michelle Drown

or as long as I can remember, I’ve been an amateur photographer. As most any photographer will tell you, photography is about opportunity. Given the opportunity to snap a unique photo, you take it because it may not come again. Saturday night, October 5, 2013, gave me just such an opportunity. It was a moonless, clear night; I thought it a perfect evening to attempt long-exposure shots of the starry sky. A friend and I headed to the Santa Ynez Valley — the closest and darkest place I know — at about 11 p.m. We found a spot on lower Stagecoach Road; it was dark and very quiet. In retrospect, it was probably a little too quiet. I wasted little time setting up and was soon shooting the brilliant night sky. I paid no attention to the sound at first, but I soon came to realize that there was something moving around near my truck. Thinking a skunk or raccoon was responsible for it, I grabbed my flashlight and poked around to identify the culprit. I saw nothing, and the sound had now gone, so I returned to my camera. Then I heard it again … and again. Each attempt to find the source of the noise yielded nothing. By now I’d taken five or six photos without success. As the shutter clicked closed from a 47-second exposure, the rustling returned. This time, it seemed to be made by something sizable, and it was coming from the field next to my truck. My friend and I were concerned; now we needed to identify the source of the sound and rule out any danger — human or otherwise. I happened to have my Colt .32-caliber handgun locked in my

toolbox; I thought it prudent to have it available should I need it. With flashlight and gun in hand, I slowly made my way across the field; I did not chamber a round. About a third of the way across, my flashlight shone upon something glowing green directly in front of me. “Eyeshine, something’s watching us,” I thought. As I quietly called to my friend, one glowing eye suddenly became two; I could see the eyes blink slowly several times. I continued forward and could now make out almondshaped eyes. I was almost sure of what I was seeing; not certain, however, I continued. Then with one step it all became clear — the face belonging to the eyes came into view. I was standing 20 feet from a full-grown mountain lion. Just then my friend said, “My god that’s a big [expletive] cat!” and I heard a low guttural growl. Heart pounding, I replied, “I know, back up — we’re leaving now!” I slowly backed away, keeping my eyes, gun, and flashlight trained on those green eyes. Then the eyes slowly rose from an apparent crouching position. They hung ominously in the dark and then vanished in the abyss that surrounded my light. Fearing curiosity might make the cat return, I hastily tossed my equipment into my truck. We were gone in what was probably the longest five minutes of my life. We drove in utter silence until we both suddenly burst out with our excited thoughts on what had just happened. We still relive some part of the encounter every time we talk, and one thing of which we are both certain; we will carry this experience with us forever.

Santa Barbara’s shoreline might not have been the toughest chore of the day. Try standing on a street corner and clapping for five hours during the Select Staffing Santa Barbara International Veterans Marathon and Half Marathon. “It’s hard on the hands,” said Tina Nelson, a volunteer course monitor for the fourth consecutive year. She and Laura Gowdy, who has worked all five marathons, watched the runners stream along Modoc Road at the intersection of Calle de los Amigos last Saturday. They applauded, rang a cowbell, and offered verbal encouragement. “Looking great, ladies.” “Good job, guys.” “Doing awesome!” Both women are runners themselves.“You know it means a lot for them to hear from volunteers and spectators,” Nelson said.

players were running and diving to the floor, into the scorer’s table, and into the stands, desperate to keep the ball in play. The Gaucho women’s team took No. -ranked Hawai‘i to the limit in a five-set thriller. A key blow was struck by Hawai‘i junior Sarah Mendoza, a Santa Barbara High grad, whose serve at 11-10 in the fifth set eluded the Gauchos. The Rainbow Wahine prevailed, 15-12, ending UCSB’s eight-match winning streak. First-year coach Nicole Lantagne Welch’s Gauchos still are second in the Big West, a match ahead of Hawai‘i and one behind 21st-ranked Cal State Northridge, where they will play Saturday (Nov. 16). … Meanwhile, at Harder Stadium, a crowd of 12,805 turned out to see if the UCSB men’s soccer team could extend its unbeaten streak to 11 games at the close of the regular season. That they did, with late goals by Goffin Boyoko and Charlie Miller for a 2-0 victory over Cal Poly. The Gauchos, already assured of an NCAA berth on the basis of their record, will host a Big West Tournament semifinal match on Friday night (Nov. 15). UCSB reaped nine all-conference citations this week, including Coach of the Year (Tim Vom Steeg) and Freshman of the Year (Ismaila Jome). … Another exciting show was the screening of a five-year-old video from the Beijing Olympics. It’s always amazing to watch Jason Lezak overtake the French world-record holder in the final strokes and lead the U.S. to victory in the 4×100 freestyle relay. Lezak’s split of 46.06 seconds remains the fastest a human has ever been timed. The 1999 graduate of UCSB, who earned four gold medals in three Olympics, received the Distinguished Alumni Award on Saturday.“I couldn’t have done it without my UCSB experience,” Lezak said. He recalled how he butted heads with Gaucho coach Gregg Wilson and was dismissed from the team.“It made me stronger,” said Lezak, who devised his own plan to regain the trust of the coach.“I changed my attitude.” For more sports, including a weekly highlight schedule, see independent.com/sports.

LIFE OF PIE: For Brian Foehl, nothing but the best will do at the French Press, and that goes for the pie, too!

FRENCH PRESS’S BAKERY PROGRAM Is as Fine as the Coffee

W

by Shannon Kelley

hen it comes to the kitchen, the cliché is that there are two kinds of people: home cooks and chefs on the one hand, bakers and patisseries on the other. You’re either sweet or you’re savory — and, either way, you probably have a few things to say about the folks on the other side of the oven. “Savory is free-flowing, like jazz; you can do whatever,” says Bryan Foehl, who runs the months-old bakery program at the French Press. “But approaching pastry, you’re like, whoa, I really have to measure that.” Equal parts improvisational and willing to follow the rules, Foehl is the rare breed who’s comfortable with both: When studying at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa, Foehl says, “A chef said, ‘No good chef knows both; it’s one or the other,’ and that was a defining moment; I was like, ‘You watch me!’ I like both, but some chefs are like, ‘I don’t do that!’ As if it’s a drug, like,‘No, I don’t touch the stuff.’” After returning to his native S.B. after culinary school, Foehl began working as a private chef. Then, around three years ago, he launched Rebellion Pies & Pastries, a wordof-mouth pie-delivery service that wrapped its goodies in rubber-stamped brown paper à la UPS and did well … during the holidays. The rest of the year, however, Foehl had some free time on his hands — time he often spent hanging out at the French Press’s flagship State Street location. He and Todd Stewart, husband-half of the duo that has Santa Barbara hopped up on its meticulously tended joe (and ruined for the likes of anything else forever), got to talking about pie and coffee.“The whole diner thing,” Foehl says.“Twin Peaks kept coming up. You know,‘This is a damn good cup of coffee’— and piece of pie!” While the conversations and David Lynch–memorializing ensued, Stewart and his wife, Julia Mayer, were busily

building out the space for the French Press’s second spot on the corner of Anacapa and Cota, complete with a commercial kitchen. That’s where Foehl now cranks out delicious baked goods that might well have that long-ago naysayer eating his words. Or a second piece of pie. Foehl’s roster of treats is built around the basics — scones, cookies, pies, buckles,“pop-tarts” (hand pies filled with his homemade preserves that cannot officially be called Pop-Tarts) — often served with an intriguingly mouthwatering twist. For instance, the day I interviewed him, he’d introduced a brand-new creation: the saltedcaramel apple pie. His tinkerings might skew classic (see: chocolate chip cookies, blueberry scones), winkingly lowbrow (see: Funfetti cookies, pop-tarts), or sophisticated and current (see: pink peppercorn, salt, and strawberry pie). “We’re not doing anything crazy, but we’re spending a lot of time developing the recipes, playing with the flavor profiles, making sure it’s up to a specific standard, like what goes on with their coffee,” he says, indicating Stewart and Mayer, whose contribution to the way Santa Barbarans now caffeinate cannot be overstated. Foehl intends to soon implement what he dubs “Phase Two” of this glorious experiment — Paleo and vegan goodies — and is taking orders for holiday pies now. Pickings include French Apple, Cran-Apple, Salted-Caramel Apple (tell him I sent you), Pumpkin, Pecan, and Blackbird (blackberry pie with dark chocolate). For best effect, present to your family with a practiced poker face as you say, “Why yes, I do bake.” And try not to chuckle when they declare,“This is a damn good piece of pie.”

fter the sudden salacious shuttering of Anchor Woodfire Kitchen this past September, after less than 10 months in business, one of Santa Barbara’s most expensive — and drool-worthy, with its custom smoker and wood-fire grill — kitchens lay empty. In fact, that kitchen may have been the catnip partly responsible for luring up-and-coming L.A. chef Ricardo Zarate to Babylon. (It certainly had something to do with the super-quick turnaround; Zarate says they’re only doing minimal remodeling of the interior.) Of course, calling Zarate — a 2011 Food & Wine Best New Chef and two-time semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef, West Award — an L.A. chef is not entirely accurate, despite the fact he’s earned those accolades while helming Los Angeles restaurants Mo-Chica, Picca, and Paiche. The Lima, Peru–born Zarate is passionate about his native country’s cuisine, and at the Blue Tavern, which he told me over the phone last week he’s hoping to open next Monday, November 18 (you might want to call to confirm; these things are known to change), he intends to fuse “what I think of as California cuisine and Peruvian spices and flavors” using local ingredients — and sneak in a little education while he’s at it. “People aren’t really familiar with what is Peruvian cuisine,” he says. “It’s 500 years old and brings in the Spanish influence; then we had Africans and Europeans, French and Italians, Chinese and Japanese. And you have to have fresh ingredients.” His international perspective will be in evidence in dishes like the beet, tomato, and burrata salad tossed in a huacatay-pesto dressing, or seafood risotto with tomato-aji panca and salsa verde. Lomo saltado will be made over as a homemade tagliatelle with beef, tomato-onion stew, and pecorino, while that wood-burning oven will crank out Peruvian-inspired pizzas, seafood, and meat. The bar program, conceived by Deysi Alvarez, will also incorporate nods to South America, replacing the bourbon in the Old Fashioned with mescal, for example, which will be offered alongside plenty of fresh margaritas and mojitos. As enthusiastic as he is about food, though, Zarate seems equally excited about Santa Barbara. “I went there once and said, ‘This is the place I want to retire,’ so when I saw the opportunity, I thought it would be perfect. It’s a good way to become a part of the community. Santa Barbara is so beautiful, it has such beautiful ingredients, and the response is very warm so far. I love the city, and I’m really excited about the food we’re bringing to Santa Barbara.” — SK

Foxygen drummer Shaun Fleming is no stranger to turn-of-the-century influencers; he’s spent the better part of 2013 channeling greats like John Densmore, Ringo Starr, and Charlie Watts to help bring Foxygen’s We Are the st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic to life. On My Friend Fish, Fleming’s full-length debut as Diane Coffee, the New York-by-way-of-SoCal twentysomething continues his exploration of oldschool sounds, mixing and mashing everything from bedroom-eyes R&B (“All the Young Girls”) to glammy rock-outs (“That Stupid Girl Who Runs a Lot”). What we end up with is a bombastic record that manages to reimagine sock-hop doo-wop (“Green,” “When It’s Known”) just as easily as it explores Baptist gospel euphoria (“Hymn”). Disjointed as it can feel at times, Fish successfully gets one point across loud and clear: Fleming’s voice is a force to be reckoned with. That he spent his younger years dabbling in voice-over work seems to be worth mentioning here, as Fleming switches vocal gears like most of us change shoes. What’s more impressive: They all seem to fit perfectly. — AC

POWER tk OF TWO: Quasi is Janet tkktk Weiss (left) and Sam Coomes.

With the music industry being what it is today, an average band’s shelf life maxes out somewhere around five years. If you make it to 10, you’ve achieved the almost-unheard-of. And if you cross the 15-year mark, you’ve basically reached Herculean status. This year, Portland duo Quasi celebrates its 20-year anniversary, and believe us when we say that their accomplishment is nothing short of heroic. The brainchild of ex-hubbie and wife Sam Coomes and Janet Weiss (that’s right, they got divorced and still kept it together), Quasi makes the kind of clever, funloving indie rock that often gets associated with their more-famous contemporaries like The Hold Steady, The Mountain Goats, and Pavement. (It’s worth mentioning that Weiss spent a stint in Stephen Malkmus’s other band, The Jicks.) Last month, Quasi celebrated another milestone: the release of double album Mole City, the pair’s first recording since the departure of bassist Joanna Bolme in 2011. “It’s easier to communicate, to sense quickly what’s working and what isn’t when it’s just Janet and myself,” said Coomes. “That was especially helpful while working on such a larger-scale project.” At 24 songs in length, Mole City is an eccentric and eclectic offering that zigs and zags between Americana-indebted bar rock-outs and spacey sound experiments. “We were going for a double album from the start, to try and challenge ourselves a little, to do something we hadn’t done yet,” Coomes explained. “It definitely changes the process, knowing you’re working on a larger canvas.” Sonically, Quasi’s canvas gets the collage treatment here; moments of Big Star ’70s-rock grandeur mash up against synth-filled instrumentals and Flaming Lips–esque freak folk. “Putting this record together was a little like a puzzle,” said Coomes. “You just sit down and start putting the pieces together — when it works, you get a good feeling; when it doesn’t, you just don’t.” Quasi plays SOhO Restaurant & Music Club ( State St.) on Thursday, November 14, at 9 p.m. Call 962-7776 or visit clubmercy.com for info. — AC

THE PAINTER OF MODERN HISTORY Delacroix and the Matter of Finish at SBMA

all it Antiques Roadshow syndrome — people who believe they own unauthenticated masterpieces approach curators at major museums all the time in the hope that someone with some authority will finally recognize the real value of what they have. While the vast majority of such incidents are false alarms, this case was different. When the descendants of a distinguished Swiss family now living in Montecito contacted Eik Kahng, the chief curator at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, to let her know that they had a painting in their home that they believed to be by 19th-century French master Eugène Delacroix, she was interested enough to ask for some image files. What she saw on her computer screen surprised her.“Most families don’t normally have a painting of a dead guy in a bed,” she told me, giving the subject of the picture in question, “The Last Words of Marcus Aurelius,” its most blunt possible construction. As she looked over the rest of the items in the estate known as the Van Asch van Wyck Trust, Kahng DOWNHILL FROM HERE: In “The Last Words of Marcus Aurelius,” Eugène Delacroix used a was struck by the relative coherence famously dark moment in Roman history to comment on the perilous state of affairs in France of what she saw. after the death of Napoleon Bonaparte.

France but which cannot be lent out because they cannot be transported. Beyond the many lessons to be learned here about the relations between a painter and his students, a painter and the critics, and a painter and his country, there are extraordinary viewing experiences waiting in every direction. The late (1856) oil sketch of “Winter: Juno and Aeolus” is a tour de force of dynamic contrast and gestural brushstrokes. Its companion piece “Spring: Orpheus and Eurydice,” on loan from the Musée Fabre in Montpellier, is equally extravagant in expression, offering ample evidence of why Delacroix was so influential throughout the impressionist and postimpressionist periods. “The Disciples at Emmaus” from 1853, with its bright reds and radically disparate dark and light passages, fuses great painting techniques from artists as different as Rubens, Caravaggio, and even Vermeer. Yet highest praise should be reserved for the recently discovered painting, which does appear to be a genuine Delacroix. The story it tells, of the great emperor and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius on his deathbed, commending his dissolute son Commodus to the assembled wise men of Rome, comprises a fantastic allegory of all the big questions that preoccupied Delacroix’s France in the mid-19th century. An age of wisdom has nearly breathed its last, and the beginning of a period of devastating self-indulgence hastens its end in the form of the shallow, unfeeling son, who, draped in red and showing off his hairless youthful chest, stands for everything his father abhors. Yet Marcus Aurelius must commend him nevertheless, both because he is his fleshand-blood relation, and also because the issue of so many matchlessly intelligent plans for the betterment of mankind has been the same — something unintended and much worse than what brought it into existence. Like the France in which it was painted, the picture represents a proof of Karl Marx’s famous saying about how history repeats itself: “the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.” In Delacroix’s magnificent allegory, the discipline of painting rises to the intellectual level of the novel or the symphony, becoming an essential element in the creation of a modern sense of history.

n “The Hollow Men,” T. S.

The problem is — or at least one of the problems is — that Jack doesn’t always sound so mournful about it. His whimpering, which now and again rises to the level of a scream, revolves around not the loss he feels in their absence, but rather the strange ambivalence he felt when they were still around. Playwright Shawn artfully taps into the myriad of ways that contemporary society licenses, perhaps even encourages, resentment and its uglier, more feral German cousin, schadenfreude. The performances in this Designated Mourner are uniformly spectacular. Shawn’s distinctively digressive manner demands the utmost focus from actors and, under the skillful direction of Maurice Lord, Harwell and company deliver the goods. The play’s many cerebral epiphanies bubble and burst with astonishing vigor. It’s the end of the world as we know it, and it feels fine. ■

Top Girls, presented by UCSB Department of Theater and Dance. At UCSB’s Performing Arts Theater, Saturday, November 9. Shows through November 16. Reviewed by Joseph Miller

O

ne good reason to stage Top Girls, Caryl Churchill’s masterpiece from the Reagan/Thatcher era, is to discover how little the rhetoric has changed 30 years after the supposed Conservative Revolution. The government-suspect, anti-labor, greed-is-good, do-for-yourself arguments in Girls’ third act can be found in nearly identical form on Fox News today. Equally enduring is our cultural ambivalence toward the female executive, esteemed as the apotheosis of women’s lib on the one hand, and stereotyped on the other as the ruthless shrew who seems to have purged all nurture from her nature. Top Girls explores this tension within and between a dozen or so female characters, but none more than Marlene (Marley Frank), an executive within a women’s employment agency. Churchill’s unusual structuring of the work includes a fantasy first act where Marlene, on the verge of promotion, shares a table with strong, persecuted women from history in what begins as a celebration but devolves into frightening disclosures as layer upon layer of pain is penetrated by drink. Marlene’s torn heart simmers throughout the rest of the play, boiling over with a terrible revelation in the final act. The brilliance of this production and the solid performances by seven undergraduate women owe much to the sure direction of Anne Torsiglieri, who knows Top Girls well, having performed the show on Broadway. An impressive variety of convincing dialects adds to the color. Portrayals of strong-headed girls by Dani Hernandez, Mariah Goolsby, and Zurian Zarate underscore the knotty question: At what ■ age and under what form do even women value strength in women?

After so many crops, musical and otherwise, what nutrients could possibly be left in this well-ploughed soil?

When Carrie fails to recognize the onset of puberty in the form of menstruation, most of the girls make fun of her, while only her gym teacher, Ms. Huggins (Nastassja Huggins), steps in to defend the traumatized girl. In subsequent developments, the empathetic Sue Snell (Katherine Bottoms) becomes Carrie’s sole advocate among the students, while mean girl Chris Hargensen (Taylor Courtney) spirals further and further into a devious spitefulness. The whole thing comes to a head when Sue convinces her boyfriend Tommy (Julian Comeau) that taking Carrie to the prom instead of her will alleviate the situation, rather than leading to the inevitable catastrophe. As Carrie White, Santa Barbara High student Julia Kupiec delivers a fullbodied performance that’s subtle, dramatically powerful, and poignant. Her duets with her mother, Margaret White (Deborah Bertling), are nearly operatic in their emotional depth and complexity. Overall, the production is impressive, and the result is excellent musical theater and a new triumph for Out of the Box.

any Americans confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day, and only register at some level that these two holidays have something to do with men and women in uniform. The more thoughtful might read a book or watch a TV special. Actor and playwright Casey Caldwell has raised the thoughtfulness bar much higher. The artistic director of Ratatat Theater Group interviewed nearly two dozen area veterans and then carefully meshed their words with a skeletal edit of Shakespeare’s Henry V. The result is Happy Few, a full-body immersion into the passions and vagaries of war as experienced through the hearts and shattered nerves of those who know it best. This Friday-evening performance, on Veterans Day weekend, at the Santa Barbara Veterans Memorial building, was certainly the most meaningful observance of the holiday that I have ever known. In accord with Ratatat’s vision of theater as a community encounter, Caldwell and five other actors have been taking Happy Few to various locations about town. Critics have long been divided regarding Shakespeare’s intent in Henry V — a play which follows the buildup, the conflict, and the aftermath of the Battle of Agincourt (1415) — some reading an antiwar message, others seeing a vindication of national sovereignty. One of the remarkable things about Caldwell’s creation is its transcendence of politics, its refusal to put the messy, bloody business of warfare into a tidy package. Happy Few doesn’t pretend to do your thinking for you. Instead, it gives audiences an existential encounter with the raw emotions and candid reflections of veterans who are compelled to wrestle with their memories. And like war itself, that inner battle for meaning can be a ■ matter of life or death. november 14, 2013

ANDREW BIRD’S HANDS OF GLORY CAMERON WITTIG

Pop Music’s Violin Maestro Goes Solo at UCSB by Aly Comingore

I

’m always into alternative ways of performing and places that aren’t on the rock ’n’ roll schedule,” says Andrew Bird. The acclaimed violinist is speaking specifically about a recent show near Joshua Tree, California. Dubbed “The Quietest Show on Earth,” the event paired Bird with singer/songwriter Tift Merritt, a camera crew, and 10 lucky contest winners for an intimate concert in celebration and support of America’s national parks. “It entailed doing a three-mile hike through the desert with 10 strangers from all across the country,” recalls Bird. “I got to chat with all these folks, and then we finished the hike and played a show. It was really cool.” Fans of Bird’s music will know that he is no stranger to the takeaway show format. In his 17-plus years of professional music making, the singer, songwriter, violinist, and avid whistler has played just about everywhere — from the roof of Queen Elizabeth Hall to the streets of London. On Thursday, November 21, Bird will land at UCSB’s Campbell Hall for an intimate solo performance with openers The Handsome Family. We recently caught up with Bird from his new home in Los Angeles to discuss nature, architecture, and his first West Coast Christmas. STRING THEORY: Newly minted West Coaster Andrew The Joshua Tree show is just one of many Bird heads to UCSB on November 21. performances you’ve done in nature. Do you feel like location informs your songwriting? Oh yeah, totally. It first hit me when I start to feel like you’re making it sound like a way more started writing songs when I was 18. My folks bought a farm in western Illinois when I was 12, and I started going out there and writing songs on the front porch of their farm. What was significant about it was, on that porch, you could see a weather system come into the valley.You could watch it approach you for 30 or 40 minutes and then rain on you and go on its way. It does something to your sense of time and space that calibrates your brain in a good way for music, I think. When you’re in an urban environment and always looking only two or three feet in front of you, you’re going to hear different kinds of music. That dawned on me a long time ago.

How does your barn studio space fit into that paradigm? Well, it’s a barn, so you’re committed to that

kind of structure. The biggest thing in any space that I live or work in is the higher the ceilings, the more hope you have. And the better it sounds, I think. If you’ve ever seen those old soundstages from Columbia Records or Capitol Records, you never see the ceiling. I always think of that shot of Sinatra with the RCA microphone. There’s just something about vocals in a high-ceiling space. It makes you sing out; it makes you do that echolocation thing where you have to fill the room. I’ve also written music in little boxy apartments in Chicago and that tends to lead to a more intimate vocal. But I’m more a fan of pushing it out, of feeling the space.

I want to talk about the songwriting blog you wrote for the New York Times . Did you come to them with the idea, or did they approach you? They approached me about it.

Holsapple, had the idea of doing this Measure for Measure thing, and I guess I was on his list. I don’t write that much, and the writing I do goes into my songs, but when I’m asked to write, I actually enjoy it. I like having assignments.

After two decades of music making, it must be difficult to break down your process. It is, and you

deliberate process than it really is because suddenly you’re working in the realm of journalism. That’s sometimes the disconnect with the discipline of journalism and the discipline of music; sometimes journalists assume that it’s as deliberate as what they’re doing. That’s where the most miscommunication happens. But then I started writing about it, and I’m like,“Oh, yeah. That’s what happens when you try to write about it.” There are times where I asked myself, “Is this silly? Is this healthy? Am I demystifying all this stuff?” But in the end, you have to work harder to really demystify it. And I was learning something from the whole process, so … That’s another thing that I use to gauge whatever I’m doing, whether it’s playing in the desert or whatever. If I’m learning from it, it’s worth doing.

You’re bringing your Gezelligheid show to the West Coast for the first time this year. Are you worried that 85-degree weather is going to wreck the vibe? Good question! That dawned on me

after I booked it. The whole point [of those shows] was to combat the darkness and the cold of Chicago, and I never really expected it to go on the road. But I think we all need some communal warmth during the holidays. It’s a rough time of the year wherever you are, or it can be, so I’m counting on that.

Have you given any thought to the next record? Yes, but it will be a while. I’ve got some things that I still haven’t nailed on a record that I’d like to nail, mostly regarding vocals. It’s a good feeling that after 10 records, I still don’t feel like I’ve quite got it right.

Hump Night Diane Coffee. At Muddy Waters Café, Saturday, November 9. Reviewed by Aly Comingore

N

ever mind for a second that Diane CofSTAR POWER: fee mastermind Shaun Fleming has spent Diane Coffee laid the theatrics on thick the better part of the last year behind the during Saturday’s kit for psych-rock auteurs Foxygen. Taken on his headlining set at own merits, the SoCal native and his new band Muddy Waters. of music-making buddies are already worthy headliners. Truth be told, the few that were in attendance on Saturday night at Muddy Waters saw three groups that are surely destined for bigger and better sooner, rather than later. Opening act Gothic Tropic made a strong return showing, dishing up an eclectic and ear-wormy mix of garage rock, post punk, and world music–indebted rhythms that cautiously vacillated between chaos and control. Occupying the night’s middle slot, Portland’s Aan gave audience members a set that was about as sonically tight as one gets; guitars and drums started, stopped, and seemed to turn on a dime before sputtering forth in new directions, and frontman Bud Wilson Jr.’s high and nuanced vocals rang out strong and confident. Still, the night belonged to Diane Coffee, and it didn’t take long for Fleming to drive that point home. At the helm of his newly minted band (seriously, they’ve been playing together for less than a month), Fleming looked like a man possessed, flailing his limbs and whipping his hair as he belted through cuts off Diane’s newly released debut. (The spaghetti western–conjuring “Tale of a Dead Dog” was a hands-down highlight.) Still, the theatrics only heightened what was easily one of the best-sounding sets to come out of Muddy in ages. Whether it was the band, the mix, or a magical combination thereof, Fleming’s jaw-dropping vocal range hit every cue that was asked of it and then some. That he’s got another gig waiting in the wings may simply mean that Fleming has even more talent up his sleeves — and we can’t wait to see what he busts out ■ next.

Wu-Tang Forever GZA. At Velvet Jones, Friday, November 8. Reviewed by Jake Blair

W

hen GZA, of the Wu-Tang Clan, took the stage at Velvet Jones on Friday night, he didn’t waste much time posturing. All told, the beginning of his set was pretty lackluster — understandable given the distractedness of the crowd and the technical issues being dealt with by DJ Symphony. But as the set wore on, the music built, and the crowd started delivering the lyrics of Wu-Tang classics and cuts from GZA’s critically acclaimed Liquid Swords with a rising ferocity. It all eventually came to a head when GZA asked the age of a Wu-Tang-shirt-adorned member of the pit, prompting the following exchange: “How old are you?” “19.” “19? How long you been listenin’ to the Wu?” “Like, five years.” “Since you were 14? This man wasn’t even born when we made this music, and he knows it by heart. That touches me.” A “family photo” was taken from the stage, with GZA posing against a wall of fans, and then a call went out into the crowd: “Who here knows the lyrics to ‘Triumph?’” The evening ended with one of the Wu’s signature ballads, a tribute to GZA’s fallen comrade and cousin ODB, as the microphone was passed among a handful of the dozen-or-so fans brought up to the stage. GZA stayed afterward and signed hats and shirts, took pictures, and generally talked story with a fan base who have had to discover his music on their own. It’s the type of intimacy that only happens when an artist and an audience know each other, helped tremendously by the fact that the now 47-year-old GZA clearly knows himself. ■

 DELIVERY

W

hen Dickens hits the big screen, you naturally get a lot of plot for your money, which can be a mixed blessing. Ultimately, the substantial and often involving aspects of director Mike Newell’s adaptation of Great Expectations tends to get bogged down by the knotty entanglements of a grand and complicated tale, crammed in not always graceful ways into a twohour time frame. Even so, the new Newell version of Great Expectations, the seventh screen adaptation to date, is — thanks to David Nicholls’s screenplay and attention to period detail — a faithfully Dickensian encounter. It serves as a fine young person’s guide to the classic, especially compared to the modernized Alfonso Cuarón number from 1998, with Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow. Pity and savor our hero Pip (played by Jeremy Irvine and his younger brother, Toby), a poor young blacksmith in training swept up into the lavish and evil scheme of his landed gentrification in London. Lurking in the margins of our young and naïve hero’s fate are the machinations of heavily backstoried adult manipulators Miss Havisham and Abel Magwitch, the convict who would be hero. At the core is Pip’s unquenchable love for the pale, lovely, and emotionally cool Estella (Holliday Grainger), whose affections may or may not be won in the purposefully vague finale here. Alas, the plots thicken, and sweeten, and thicken some more. In this film, some of the more pleasurable parts are on the supportive sidelines, principally in the form of Hel-

ena Bonham Carter, brandishing her deliciously sinister side as Miss Havisham, and Ralph Fiennes as believably scraggly and noble Magwitch. With their raggedy and game character-actor powers, Carter and Fiennes gruffly outshine the solid but young leads in a story where the starkly contrasting milieus of social stations, morals, and manners play critical roles. For all its worthy and working strategies, though, things fall short in the latest Great Expectations, and expectations are short-sold. Locations and production values are true to the period, but the musical score is all distracting modern movie lip gloss, amid other compromising factors. This BBC-funded film too often feels like its dramatic dimensions narrow down to the cozy and glossy qualities of BBC television miniseries, packed into a too-small and too-smug box. ■

Loki Thrills Thor: The Dark World. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, and Natalie Portman star in a film written by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus and directed by Alan Taylor. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino

 BRO-DOWN: Thor: The Dark World stars Chris Hemsworth (left) and Tom Hiddleston as siblings/nemeses Thor and Loki opposite Natalie Portman as the hammer-wielding hunk’s mortal honey. What you can’t deny about this cornball feast is that it spans time and space without a lot of cosmic lingering. Walking out of the theater, you’ll be shocked to realize the epic took a mere two hours. Of course, in a pitched battle like this you can’t rule out even the most insignificant players, so keep your eyes fixed on the seemingly crazy. And don’t walk out of said theater too fast either; the credits offer two stingers, one points the way toward a new comic franchise, another includes an escaped space monster. Sure, it may be junk food, but the ■ portions are enormous!

N

ew Thor director Alan Taylor made his bones creating truly great television like The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones. And based on this venture, he clearly knows how to turn a big unwieldy film around fast, from funny to tragic and back again; he’s light on his superhero feet. Like The Avengers, titanic reversals seem to be the new way to make a tentpole Marvel movie feel like the splashy pulp art of a comic book. (Computer graphics and auteur directors don’t work — remember the Hulk films?) When the master of slurpy expostulation Kenneth Branagh directed the first Thor installment, he turned most people off with his speechifying immortals echoing in the halls of Asgard. It was a mythic-scale warrior world somehow made boring, even though it was ruled by Anthony Hopkins and Rene Russo. If anything, this sequel wallows deeper in sci-fi fantasy realms, yet the net effect is kind of awesome. The whole thing is presented on an immense scale, but there are still neat and unexpected turns, begot mostly by evil bro Loki (played with consummate smarmy grace by Tom Hiddleston). Somewhere on a darkling plane ruled by darkling elves, Thor (the hunky Chris Hemsworth) and Loki hack away at each other brutally and then … surprise! Good people do die in this film, but resurrections happen, too, this being fanboy fantasy.

Houseless (69 mins.; NR: sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, some suggestive content)

Houseless presents us with a view from Isla Vista’s Anisq’Oyo Park and a documentary look at a half-dozen men — mostly in late middle age — who, the filmmakers report, have drifted into semi-permanent residence under the stars and the influence there. Most prominently, as anyone from Isla Vista can tell you ought to be the case, is Pirate, whose real name is Raymond Lucero, widely reported to have died over the summer, though there has been no official recording of the fact. Sometimes naïve documentaries cut in several directions at once. Houseless is a good example of a film that manages to patronize its topic while making the documentarians and the students pictured seem heartless. In one scene, a group of young men taunt Pirate in the cruelest fashion while he appears to be performing a drunken shtick. Other correspondents seem just callous; a young Bible thumper, some female passersby, and a foot-patrol officer offer nothing more noble than condescending words. One Isla Vista collective feeds the men fruit salad, which seems nice. To be fair, some interviewing takes place, and the stories ought to move audiences, but the connection between the student population and the homeless does not seem as enlightened as the film wants us to believe at first. Some of it seems awful and intrusive. In one scene, a homeless man is filmed having a heart attack. The interviewers clearly call for an ambulance, but he’s photographed clutching his chest alone on the ground. The poor, the Bible unpityingly says, we will always have with us. This film seems to add to that notion, for our edification. (DJP) Thu., Nov. 14, 5pm, Santa Barbara Hillel, 781 Embarcadero Del Mar

PREMIERES The Best Man Holiday (129 mins.; R: language, sexual content, brief nudity)

The Hunger Games (142 mins.; PG-13: intense violent thematic material and disturbing images, all involving teens)

Set in a future world where the ruling powers send 24 teens to fight to the death, a young woman volunteers to take her sister’s place in the battle. Suzanne Collins’s brilliant novel clearly indicts government that fosters economic injustice with media controls. Unfortunately, the movie version is a somewhat less complex moral mirror.

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

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

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

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

Who Killed Vincent Chin? (87 mins.; NR)

language)

A sailor’s ship collides with a shipping container, forcing him to fight for his life in the open ocean. Robert Redford stars. Redford handles every obstacle flung his way with a quiet and steady competence that feels more heroic than anything we’ve seen Marvel’s The Avengers do to date. (KS) Metro 4

✯ Blue Is the Warmest Color (179 mins.; NC-17: explicit sexual content)

Adèle’s life is changed when she meets a blue-haired young woman who teaches her to assert herself and understand desire. In the end, what makes this one of the year’s best films is its unique and personalized spin on the ageless challenge of a convincing love story, whatever the gender particulars or polarities. (JW) Plaza de Oro

✯ Captain Phillips (134 mins.; PG-13: sustained intense sequences of menace, some violence with bloody images, substance use)

Tom Hanks stars as real-life ship captain Richard Phillips, who was manning the U.S.-flagged MV Maersk Alabama when it was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. Hanks summons up a kind of modest mastery here, armed with believability and vulnerability in the lead role of the captain in crisis. (JW) Camino Real/Metro 4

✯ Ender’s Game (114 mins.; PG-13: some violence, sci-fi action, thematic material)

The International Military trains a young soldier to lead Earth’s army in a battle against aliens. This big-screen adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s famed novel has a wonderfully complicated plot, and it makes you think. It just doesn’t leave you feeling comforted about our future. (DJP) Camino Real/Metro 4

Free Birds (91 mins.; PG: some action/peril, rude humor)

Two turkeys from different neighborhoods travel back in time to try and get their species off America’s holiday menu. Fairview (2-D)/Fiesta 5 (2-D and 3-D)

✯ Gravity (90 mins.; PG-13: intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images, brief strong language) A medical engineer (Sandra Bullock) and an astronaut (George Clooney) struggle to survive after an accident leaves them floating in space. Gravity is a beautifully realized, spare, yet genuinely spacious film, teeming with references to modern science and modern existential angst. (JW) Camino Real (2- D and 3-D)/Fiesta 5 (3-D)

This 1987 documentary recounts the murder of Vincent Chin, an automotive engineer who was mistakenly identified as Japanese and slain by a co-worker who blamed him for the competitive nature of the Japanese auto industry. Wed., Nov. 20, 6pm, UCSB’s MultiCultural Center

NOW SHOWING ✯ 12 Years a Slave (134 mins.; R: violence/ cruelty, some nudity, brief sexuality)

Set in antebellum America, a free black man from New York is abducted and sold into slavery. This film is a coolly and beautifully crafted piece of work, given a special intensity through the lead perfor-

Three sixty-somethings travel to Vegas to throw their last remaining single friend a bachelor party. Playing only in the field of safe assumptions, this septuagenarian pub crawl hedges all its bets by never going near anything terrifying or outrageous. (DJP) Fairview/Fiesta 5 november 14, 2013

LIBRA

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): There’s something resembling a big red snake slithering around in your mind these days. I don’t mean that literally, of course. I’m talking about a big red imaginary snake. But it’s still quite potent. While it’s not poisonous, neither is it a pure embodiment of sweetness and light. Whether it ends up having a disorienting or benevolent influence on your life all depends on how you handle your relationship with it. I suggest you treat it with respect but also let it know that you’re the boss. Give it guidelines and a clear mandate so that it serves your noble ambitions and not your chaotic desires. If you do that, your big red snake will heal and uplift you.

can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life,” he added. The coming days are likely to bring you none of the former kind of experiences and several of the latter, Cancerian. It’s a numinous time in your long-term cycle: a phase when you’re likely to encounter beauty that enchants you and mysteries that titillate your sense of wonder for a long time. In other words, the eternal is coming to visit you in very concrete ways. How do you like your epiphanies? Hot and wild? Cool and soaring? Comical and lyrical? Hot and soaring and comical and wild and cool and lyrical?

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): You’re not being swept along in a flood of meaningless distractions and irrelevant information and trivial wishes, right? I’m hoping that you have a sixth sense about which few stimuli are useful and meaningful to you, and which thousands of stimuli are not. But if you are experiencing a bit of trouble staying well-grounded in the midst of the frenzied babble, now would be a good time to take strenuous action. The universe will conspire to help you become extra stable and secure if you resolve to eliminate as much nonsense from your life as you can.

ward, American author Edward Bellamy wrote a passage that I suspect applies to you right now: “It is under what may be called unnatural, in the sense of extraordinary, circumstances that people behave most naturally, for the reason that such circumstances banish artificiality.” Think of the relief and release that await you, Capricorn: an end to pretending, a dissolution of deception, the fall of fakery. As you weave your way through extraordinary circumstances, you will be moved to act with brave authenticity. Take full advantage.

LEO

SCORPIO

(July 23 - Aug. 22): There’s a new genre of erotic literature: dinosaur porn. E-books like In the Velociraptor’s Nest and Ravished by the Triceratops tell tall tales about encounters between people and prehistoric reptiles. I don’t recommend you read this stuff, though. While I do believe that now is a good time to add new twists to your sexual repertoire and explore the frontiers of pleasure, I think you should remain rooted in the real world, even in your fantasy life. It’s also important to be safe as you experiment. You really don’t want to explore the frontiers of pleasure with cold-blooded beasts. Either travel alone or else round up a warm-blooded compassion specialist who has a few skills in the arts of intimacy.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Sweetness is good. Sweetness is desirable. To be healthy, you need to give and receive sweetness on a regular basis. But you can’t flourish on sweetness alone. In fact, too much of it may be oppressive or numbing. I’m speaking both literally and metaphorically: To be balanced you need all of the other tastes, including saltiness, sourness, bitterness, and savoriness. From what I understand, you are headed into a phase when you’ll thrive on more bitterness and savoriness than usual. To get an idea of what I mean, meditate on what the emotional equivalents might be for bitter tastes like coffee, beer, and olives, and for savory tastes like mushrooms, cheese, spinach, and green tea.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): “I have your back” is an American expression that could also be rendered as “I’m right behind you, ready to help and defend you” or “I’m ready to support you whenever you’ve got a problem.” Is there anyone in the world who feels that way about you? If not, now would be an excellent time to work on getting such an ally. Cosmic conditions are ripe for bringing greater levels of assistance and collaboration into your life. And if you already do have confederates of that caliber, I suggest you take this opportunity to deepen your symbiotic connection even further.

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): The saxifrage is a small plant with white flowers. It grows best in subarctic regions and cooler parts of the Northern Hemisphere. The word “saxifrage” is derived from the Latin word saxifraga, whose literal meaning is “stone-breaker.” Indeed, the plant does often appear in the clefts of stones and boulders. In his poem “A Sort of a Song,” William Carlos Williams celebrates its strength: “Saxifrage is my flower that splits the rocks.” I nominate this darling little dynamo to be your metaphorical power object of the week, Virgo. May it inspire you to crack through blocks and barriers with subtle force.

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): When you procrastinate, you avoid doing an important task. Instead, you goof off, doing something fun or simply puttering around wasting time. But what if there were a higher form of procrastination? What if you could avoid an important task by doing other tasks that were somewhat less important but still quite valuable? Here’s what that might look like for you right now: You could postpone your search for the key to everything by throwing yourself into a project that will give you the key to one small part of everything.

(Apr. 20 - May 20): In my astrological opinion, almost nothing can keep you from getting the love you need in the coming days. Here’s the only potential problem: You might have a mistaken or incomplete understanding about the love you need, and that could interfere with you recognizing and welcoming the real thing. So here’s my prescription: Keep an open mind about the true nature of the love that you actually need most, and stay alert for the perhaps unexpected ways it might make itself available.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): “People fall so in love with their pain, they can’t leave it behind,” asserts novelist Chuck Palahniuk. Your assignment, Gemini, is to work your ass off to fall out of love with your pain. As if you were talking to a child, explain to your subconscious mind that the suffering it has gotten so accustomed to has outlived its usefulness. Tell your deep self that you no longer want the ancient ache to be a cornerstone of your identity. To aid the banishment, I recommend that you conduct a ritual of severing. Tie one side of a ribbon to a symbol of your pain and tie the other side around your waist. Then cut the ribbon in half and bury the symbol in the dirt.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): “You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again,” said painter Joan Miró.“You

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Over a hundred countries around the world celebrate a holiday called Independence Day, memorializing a time when they broke away from another nation and formed a separate state. I encourage you to create your own personal version of this festival. It could commemorate a breakthrough moment in the past when you escaped an oppressive situation, a turning point when you achieved a higher level of autonomy, or a taboo-busting transition when you started expressing your own thoughts and making your own decisions with more authority. By the way, a fresh opportunity to take this kind of action is available to you. Any day now might be a good time to declare a new Independence Day. Homework: At what moment in your life were you closest to being perfectly content? Re-create the conditions that prevailed then. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

Beer of the Week To Øl Black Maria Ale This take on the American black IPA craze is crafted by “gypsy” brewers in Copenhagen, Denmark, where they borrow the equipment of existing beer factories to focus on special and small bottlings. Not quite as overly malted as the New World versions, the 750 ml Black Maria is chocolate‑laced and grapefruit‑tinged with very present yeastiness and pronounced hoppiness, offering an intense, bitter, and wholly unique ale experience. Available at Bin 2860 in Los Olivos. See bin2860.com and to-ol.dk.

THRU NOVEMBER 30

in James Beard Contest

T

he James Beard Foundation put up $10,000 as prize money for its Taste America Challenge, which ran September 1 - October 31. Participating restaurants throughout the country were asked to come up with a dish that best reflects their local food scene as well as select a local charity to compete for. Restaurant Julienne ( E. Canon Perdido St.) represented Santa Barbara and won first place, securing $10,000 for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. Run entirely through Instagram, this contest asked diners to “vote” by dining at participating restaurants, taking pictures of their meals and uploading them with the hash tag #JBFTasteAmerica followed by a hash tag of their city. At the end of the two months, the city with the most uploads and hash tags wins. Julienne was Santa Barbara’s only participating restaurant and held a second-place spot on the vote sheet for most of the eight weeks, trailing only Chicago (which had 11 restaurants competing for #Chicago). At times, Julienne trailed by as little as seven votes and at other times by as many as 32 votes. With three days to go in the competition, Julienne needed 15 votes to overtake Chicago. They got 40 and finished in first place, securing a $10,000 donation for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. One dollar from every bouillabaisse sold during this competition was also donated to the James Beard Foundation to fund their educational programs. “When the competition first started, we didn’t think that there was any chance we would be able to compete with the restaurants in the big-city markets,” says Chef Justin West. “We only have 40 seats, and Santa Barbara doesn’t have the diner volume that a big city has. There were nights that we only served five bouillabaisses. We just made sure we got them all to vote. That was the goal every night … get a vote from every bouillabaisse that goes out.”

PALOMA OPENS IN GOLETA: Rudy’s Restaurant at  Calle Real, Goleta, has completed the transformation to Paloma Restaurant and Tequila Bar. Rudy Alvaro, owner of Rudy’s, is also the owner of Paloma. The eatery has a new chef, a new menu serving authentic Mexican cuisine, and a new, large front dining patio. Paloma offers sit-down table service in the evenings

and walk-up ordering during the lunch hour. For more information, call 681-0766 or visit palomagoleta.com.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Proposes to Protect the Vandenberg monkeyflower as Endangered and Designate Critical Habitat On October 29, 2013, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) published a proposed rule in the Federal Register to protect the Vandenberg monkeyflower as endangered and a proposal to designate approximately 5,785 acres of critical habitat for the species under the Endangered Species Act. The Vandenberg monkeyflower is a small annual herb with one to several yellow flowers on purple-tinted stems. The plant is only known to occur at nine locations on Burton Mesa, a distinct geographic region located in western Santa Barbara County. Of the approximately 5,785 acres proposed for critical habitat that are essential to the conservation of the species, 4,674 acres are on state lands within the Burton Mesa Ecological Reserve and La Purisima Mission State Historical Park that account for 84 percent of the area proposed. The remaining areas proposed for critical habitat consist of 796 acres on private lands, 38 acres on local agency lands, and 277 acres on Federal Department of Justice lands at the Lompoc Penitentiary. The primary threat to Vandenberg monkeyflower and its habitat is the continued invasion of nonnative plant species, which are occurring within or adjacent to all locations where the species is found. Comments on the proposed rule will be accepted through December 30, 2013. Comments may be submitted electronically at the Federal eRulemaking Portal: www. regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments to Docket Numbers FWS–R8–ES–2013–0078 and FWS–R8–ES–2013–0049. Comments can also be sent by U.S. mail or hand-delivery to: Public Comments Processing, Attn: FWS–R8–ES–20130078 and FWS–R8–ES–2013–0049; Division of Policy and Directives Management; U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; 4401 N. Fairfax Drive, MS 2042-PDM, Arlington, VA 22203. Requests for a public hearing must be submitted in writing by December 13, 2013, to the Ventura Fish and Wildlife Office, 2493 Portola Road, Suite B, Ventura, CA 93003. The Service is preparing a draft economic analysis of the proposed critical habitat that will be made available for public review and comment at a later date.
