They contend that local gang members, acting as agents for the Mexican Maﬁa, have been extorting taxes from drug dealers and that when dealers balk, they’re either killed or seriously beaten. “In the past two years, Santa Barbara has seen a signiﬁcant increase in the Mexican Maﬁa and Sureno prison gang inﬂuence on local street gangs,” they argued, citing the increased incidence of graﬃti of the Maya CITY HALL SOLILOQUY: Brandon Morse, Tea Party Republican, took number , which signiﬁes the 18 minutes to say a gang injunction would depress property values, kill 13th letter of the alphabet — the business on State Street, and chase tourists away from Santa Barbara. letter “M”— which stands for the Mexican Maﬁa.

LAW & DISORDER
Sheriff’s deputies arrested 43-year-old Nellie Palacios on 1/2 for animal cruelty and burglary after she allegedly choked and then fatally stabbed her ex-boyfriend’s cat and attempted to steal paintings from his house. When authorities arrived at the home, they found Palacios in the backyard and the cat dead inside a doghouse, under which they found the knife she allegedly used, covered with blood and fur. Paintings and other household items were found in Palacios’s car. Palacios told officers that the cat attacked her and that she was defending herself. She was treated at a nearby hospital for scratches and then booked into Santa Barbara County Jail at $50,000 bail. Last Sunday, Sheriff’s deputies cited four men for trespassing — two of them also for possessing fighting birds — after they found 20-30 people allegedly engaging in activity consistent with rooster fighting, otherwise known as cockfighting, near the Santa Maria Airport. Deputies and County Animal Control personnel recovered 19 roosters, two of which had to be euthanized because of their injuries. Deputies also found metal spurs, twine, tape, scales, and transportation boxes. The case has been forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office.

A Santa Barbara man accused of raping his wife and sexually assaulting his 15-year-old stepdaughter has been charged with two more counts of child molestation in a 2012 Long Beach case. Richard Box (pictured), 69, appeared in court Friday morning. He was released on his own recognizance Christmas Day after posting $2 million bail. While Box’s defense attorney Steve Balash had petitioned the court a week prior to have Box’s bail reduced to $100,000 — arguing a $2 million bail figure was tantamount to no bail at all — he explained that a number of Box’s friends put up the cash to have him released. “Money talks,” he said. Prosecutor Paula Waldman claims Box molested a 13-yearold girl on two occasions in 2012 at a Long Beach apartment complex he owned at the time. She explained Long Beach authorities have given the Santa Barbara DA’s Office jurisdictional permission to prosecute the case. With the new charges, Box faces a maximum of 19 years and four months in prison if convicted. He’s pleaded not guilty to all charges. The mother of 22-year-old Simon Chavez, a Santa Barbara City College student killed last January in a hit-and-run accident on Highway
A woman who pleaded guilty Friday to stealing more than $500,000 from an elderly man with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease will be sentenced to three years of felony probation and has been ordered to pay full restitution. Rosemary Baugh (pictured), 57, was charged with financial elder abuse and perjury, and faces 11 years and eight months in prison if she doesn’t comply with the terms of her plea deal. Prosecutor Brian Cota explained after Friday’s hearing that while the probation sentence may seem somewhat lenient (considering the circumstances of the crime and the amount of money involved), the victim’s family and the District Attorney’s Office unanimously agreed it made legal and financial sense because a good portion of the stolen money is recoverable, lengthy and costly civil cases will be avoided, Baugh suffers from mental health problems, and the victim would likely not want to see her imprisoned. “Notwithstanding those issues,” Cota said, “this would have been a prison case.” Baugh was arrested November 27 after an investigation by the police department’s Property Crimes Unit discovered she had taken a small fortune from the 80-year-old victim over the course of more than two years. Baugh became his caretaker following the death of his only local relative in 2011, but she soon started using his money to buy a mobile home, shop online, make multiple purchases per day from QVC and the Home Shopping Network, and pay for psychic services. When out-of-town relatives recently visited the victim, they found him malnourished and living in squalor. As part of her plea deal, Baugh agreed to relinquish ownership of the mobile home — worth approximately $250,000 — back to the victim and his family and vacate it within 30 days. Cota said Baugh had given her daughter $100,000 to purchase property in Texas and that those funds are in the process of being returned as well. Baugh must also provide a civil court attorney the full accounting of how she spent and gave away the money. If Baugh violates the terms of her probation or fails to meet the requirements stipulated in the plea deal, Cota said, she will be sent to prison. During her time as his caretaker, Baugh had married the victim — whose name The Santa Barbara Independent has decided not to publish out of consideration for him and his relatives — as a way to squeeze more money from him. In court, she agreed she would annul the marriage and drop a number of civil suits she had filed against the victim and his family when they tried to end the marriage themselves. “Although [the civil cases] were not meritorious,” Cota explained, “they would have taken time and money to resolve.” Baugh also pleaded guilty to perjury for stating in court documents that she and — Tyler Hayden the victim lived as husband and wife for the last 32 years.
101, has been awarded a $30,000 settlement in a wrongful-death lawsuit against the driver, Lau Van Huynh. (Huynh has already been charged and sentenced in criminal court for Chavez’s death.) The lawsuit also accuses Absolute Cab Company and one of its drivers of negligence for dropping off an extremely intoxicated Chavez before his destination and not making sure he arrived home safely. That portion of the complaint — potentially worth a much larger sum in damages — will be heard in the coming months. A lawyer representing the 18-year-old daughter of Brian Tacadena has filed a $10 million wrongful-death claim against the City of Santa Barbara and its police department. Tacadena was shot and killed last September on De la Vina Street after he reportedly strode with a knife toward an officer and refused to drop the weapon. The claim comes a few weeks after the District Attorney’s Office released a lengthy report that called the shooting a “justifiable homicide.” Attorney James SegallGutierrez called for a third party to investigate the incident and said that while the report stated Tacadena was hit by only one bullet — the DA’s Office said five total shots were fired — the family saw multiple gunshot wounds when they viewed Tacadena’s body. City administrators have 45 days to respond to the claim, and SegallGutierrez said he will file in federal court if the city does not respond.

CITY The Chapala Street Bridge over Santa Barbara’s Mission Creek will reopen on 1/14 after a massive retrofit project that began last June. The new bridge — the old one was removed — will meet current standards for earthquake safety and vehicle loads, and will come with new sidewalks, lighting, and landscaping, plus paving and striping across the Yanonali Street intersection. A federal grant covered most of the $3.2 million cost; the city picked up the rest. With the January 1 retirement of longtime Assistant City Administrator Marcelo Lopez, City Hall is temporarily reorganizing many of its executive duties to fill the void until a replacement is found. Assistant City Administrator Paul Casey (who also serves as Community Development Director) will oversee the Community Development, Finance, Parks and Recreation, Library, and Airport departments.

Report Examines High Cost of Jailing Mentally Ill
BY K E L S E Y B R U G G E R
Sheriff ’s report to address jail overcrowding stated in 2008 that “[County Jail] has become the County’s de facto ‘mental institution.’” Last month, a report completed by CLUE (Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice) reiterated that statement and argued that holding mentally ill inmates in County Jail is not only inhumane but also more expensive than moving them to treatment facilities. CLUE is a collection of faith communities that has focused its eﬀorts in the past three years on the mentally ill population that circulates through the “revolving door” of courtrooms, emergency rooms, and jail cells. CLUE representative Maureen Earls and former public defender Nick Beeson argue that if the conservatively estimated 150 mentally ill people who are in custody for low-level oﬀenses (charged with nondangerous, minor crimes like petty theft or drinking in public) were moved to facilities like El Carrillo Studios or the New Faulding Hotel, the county would save $2.9 million each year. It costs $44,500 to incarcerate an inmate in County Jail each year. According to the report, that ﬁgure does not include an additional $4,000 for mental treatment and another $4,000 for medical services. Including those additional costs, the county spends $19,000 more to incarcerate mentally ill people than it would to treat people with mental-health issues in stabilizing houses, which range from Psychiatric Health Facility units to step-down facilities to standalone treatment centers. In their four months of research — funded by the Santa Barbara Foundation — Earls and Beeson interviewed dozens of law enforcement personnel, mental-health treatment providers, and Housing Authority staﬀ and found that few people agree that low-risk mentally ill individuals belong in jail. “It’s just one of those untenable situations. We need to have options that are not jail-based,” Beeson said, explaining he hopes to bring to light previous studies — conducted by the Blue Ribbon Commission, the Grand Jury, and the County CEO between 2008 and 2011 — that demonstrated that moving those inmates out of jail would be beneﬁcial for both tax dollars and the mentally ill population. But those studies failed to materialize into real change.
Last month, the Sheriﬀ ’s department all but secured a $38.9 million grant — in addition to $80 million set aside to build the jail — to fund an additional wing (with 228 beds) dedicated to a recidivism-reducing program in the proposed North County jail, which is expected to be operating by 2018. The county will match that grant with $3.9 million from strategic reserves. Though this additional money increases the jail’s capacity to deal with mentally ill inmates, the problem, as Beeson sees it, is “if you build it, they will come.” He’d prefer the North County jail be scaled down and that money saved from removing the 150 inmates be diverted to build facilities on county-owned property. That’s where low-income housing expert Frank Thompson comes in. He contributed to the CLUE report and explained that the county owns hundreds of acres of land and that a proper linkage between health care, mental health, the courts, and nonproﬁts could halt the revolving door and improve lives. “It’s a tall order,” he admitted. Thompson explained that AB forced county jails across the state to absorb prison inmates, which is all the more reason to look for alternative solutions. He added that the annual cost for each inmate at the North County jail would likely be much greater than the annual $45,000 for each inmate at the current jail. “To do the right thing is actually cheaper,” Beeson said, adding that any cost to keep mentally ill patients out of jail would be worth it. Getting all of the moving parts working in unison will evidently not happen overnight. The good news is that more people with mental illnesses are eligible for Medi-Cal under the Aﬀordable Care Act. According to Public Health Director Dr. Takashi Wada, there are roughly 30,000 people in the county who have some form of mental illness and are now eligible for Medi-Cal. Further, all health insurance is now required to cover mental health and substance abuse equal to that of other medical treatment. The CLUE report calls for an independent analysis to do a more thorough evaluation and comparison of the costs of treating low-risk people in jail as opposed to in outside facilities. Earls and Beeson will soon meet with Wada, county staﬀ, and Sheriﬀ ’s Oﬃce personnel to discuss this further, and the issue is expected to go before the Board of Supervisors sometime in the next couple of months.

Permaculture, biodynamic farming, and cob structures are just a few examples of what Goleta could allow if an ordinance recently proposed to the city gets off the ground. While the document is still in the earliest of stages — it is being examined by city staff, and if they give it the go-ahead, it would then move on to the City Council and then possibly the city’s ordinance committee — its author, Ben Werner, and many of its supporters are both positive it will happen and confident it will be great for the Good Land. “As a culture, we need to learn to become indigenous again,” Werner said. “The ordinance is a very pragmatic aspect of how we can go about doing that.” Werner’s vision, titled the “Sustainable Living Research Ordinance,” would make room for research projects with elements that may not be allowed in existing codes, such as the aforementioned permaculture (wholly sustainable farming), biodynamic farming (compost instead of chemicals), and cob (a fireproof material made of mud and straw). Such projects would involve partnerships between the developers and research institutions, like UCSB or Cal Poly, whose students and faculty would study the various elements’ effectiveness. Werner (pictured above in his yurt) said each project would require ongoing community support and that elements of projects deemed unsuccessful would be replaced with standard-code features. Meg West, the chair of the city’s Planning Commission and one of the proposal’s many proponents, said that Werner’s ideas could make Goleta more hospitable to agriculture, business, and the environment, and that the ordinance would be “restrictive enough to prevent exploitation, but not so restrictive that legitimate projects are saddled with unnecessary burdens.” West added that the ordinance could function well either as a type of conditional-use permit or as a part of the city’s zoning code, currently being reworked. (Goleta Mayor Michael Bennett and Community Environmental Council CEO Dave Davis are also fans.) Werner, who lives in Santa Barbara and whose electricvehicle business is headquartered in Goleta, said the ordinance could be a good landuse middle ground between “developing for near-term profit or trying to preserve it — Lyz Hoffman from ourselves.”
news briefs cont’d between Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) and Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc. so that the department can hire temporary psychiatric nurses and medical coders. The agreement between ADMHS and Maxim for July 2013 – June 2014 was originally for $100,000, but was increased to $350,000, as the department expects more services will be necessary. The nurses will help with ADMHS’s staffing shortage, and the coders will help ensure that services are coded properly for Medicare billing. The supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday for the county to move forward with a previously discussed formula that the state will use to redirect funds formerly set aside for Public Health to other state needs, as part of California’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). To allow for ACA in California, the governor’s 2013-14 budget, among other things, created a new Medi-Cal benefit package and ordered the counties to return $300 million to the state they will no longer need to cover the indigent. The supervisors approved a “set percentage” formula that will pay back $2.3 million this fiscal year and $7.3 million in 2014-15. Public Health expects to net about $4.3 million in cost avoidance and new Medi-Cal enrollment

in 2014-15, which would leave a nearly $3 million budget gap. The county is currently in negotiations to contract out its clinical lab services, which could cover a good chunk of the gap. UCSB’s Faculty Club will start undergoing its first renovation this summer — and with $1 million in donations from local philanthropist Betty Elings Wells to help. Wells — an area real estate investor who, with her former husband Virgil Elings, gave $12.5 million to the university for its California NanoSystems Institute and has also contributed to Elings Park — joined the Faculty Women’s Club in the 1960s and has twice served as its president. The upgraded building, scheduled for completion in late 2015, will double the size of the original and cost $17.6 million. Goleta-based Deckers Outdoor Corporation will be getting a new 800,000-square-foot distribution center in Moreno Valley later this year, according to a company spokesperson. The shoe company currently operates distribution centers in Camarillo, Irvine, and Ventura, the latter two of which will close when the Moreno Valley building opens. Employees at the two centers will be offered jobs at the new facility. The company’s new, 192,000-square-foot headquarters in Goleta is expected to be completed in February.

Gang Injunction cont’d from p. 10
Santa Barbara City College also took oﬀense to Francisco’s lack of attention, stating,“It’s insulting,” adding “I took time out of work to be here.” In sharp contrast, no one from the public had anything at all to say about City Hall’s plans to oﬃcially declare the beginning of a drought this March, assuming predictions for a dryer-than-average winter hold true. With Lake Cachuma at only 42 percent capacity — and rainfall 65 percent below normal — the ﬁrst stage of a drought declaration would trigger only voluntary reductions in water consumption. About half the city’s water use is attributed to outdoor irrigation. If that doesn’t yield results, a Stage II drought will be declared about six months later, meaning higher water rates will be charged for higher rates of water consumption. Only with the declaration of a Stage III alert would City Hall impose water use restrictions as happened during the late 1980s. While the City of Santa Barbara has adequate water supplies to meet normal demand through the rest of the year, Councilmember White — who served on the Water Commission during the last drought — said he had “the hair-on-the back-of-the-neck sense that something’s not right.” He expressed alarm that the natural variations in Santa Barbara’s weather patterns could be “accelerating” and asked city water planners to move with urgency to ensure the city’s long-mothballed desalination plant still had the necessary permits needed to pass muster with the Coastal Commission.

that targets only “the baddest of the bad.” Fueling the opponents’ ire is the fact that the council approved the injunction without ever having held any public hearings. Matters involving litigation are exempt from the state’s open-government laws and allow closeddoor government deliberations. Although the council did hold one after-the-fact hearing — another vent-fest — that did little to assuage critics. The only councilmember to go on record against the injunction thus far has been Cathy Murillo, but she was elected after the plan was hatched. During the recent election campaign, candidate Gregg Hart spoke out against the injunction. His election presumably gives Murillo at least one ally. While that’s not enough for the council to rescind the injunction, it achieves the two-vote threshold needed for any councilmember to place an issue of public interest on the agenda. Hart did not speak during Tuesday’s discussion. No councilmember did. By law, if councilmembers were to engage with those who spoke during public comment, they’d be violating state open-government codes limiting such back-and-forth to agendized items. Perhaps loudest in his silence was Councilmember Dale Francisco, who made little eﬀort to disguise the fact he was reading a book — on how to save the United States from economic collapse — during long stretches of the public commentary. Even when he was blistered by one speaker for doing so, Francisco did not look up, nor did he stop reading. A student advisor from
Road Maintenance Proposal Punted The fate of the deferred-maintenance ordinance proposed by 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam (pictured) was unanimously delayed to February, as the supervisors on Tuesday requested that county staff further analyze the proposal and compare what it would mean for the county’s finances if it becomes law versus if it doesn’t. The supervisors could have adopted the ordinance or placed it on the June ballot, but instead decided they needed more information before choosing between those two options. Adam, who moved forward with his plan after he failed to garner enough support to tackle the county’s deferred-maintenance backlog — estimated at $250 million for county roads, $30 million for county buildings, and $20 million for parks — at the June budget talks, said, “We have to do our annual maintenance. We have to stop ignoring the maintenance.” If Adam’s ordinance were to be either adopted by the county or approved by the voters, it would require the department heads of Public Works, Parks, and General Services to inform the CEO every year on how best to maintain the infrastructure’s current conditions. The CEO would have to likewise inform the supervisors, who would have to make sure those conditions are upheld or improved. The board would be prohibited from incurring debt to ease the backlog. Although Adam’s colleagues congratulated him on getting nearly 16,000 valid signatures for the proposal to be eligible for consideration — 13,201 were required — they also said they needed some questions answered before making a decision. Third District Supervisor Doreen Farr expressed concerns with how the baseline quality will be measured and whether the no-debt stipulation would simply shift debt to other services. Several supervisors have previously argued against prioritizing deferred maintenance, stressing the need to balance that with other services and hesitating to eat into the county’s $29 million rainy-day fund to help solve the problem. The board will receive the analysis, and also consider possible ballot language, at its February 4 — Lyz Hoffman meeting.

formed and beat up and is undergoing so much pressure that even the large areas we set aside are failing to maintain the tortoise populations that once lived there. So how can we think of habitat in diﬀerent ways in order to promote recovery for the species that live there? Given the red-hot politics that surround endangered species, there must be risk to admit habitat conservation isn’t working. No one wants to admit that a program
POLITICS OF PLACE: After the Grizzly by environmental historian Peter Alagona (pictured) looks at the evolution of the Endangered Species Act, as well as where it needs to go from here.
UCSB Professor Peter Alagona’s Book Examines Four Decades of the Endangered Species Act
BY M AT T K E T T M A N N n December 28, 2013, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) turned 40 years old, and contemporary supporters of the bipartisan measure signed by President Richard Nixon in 1973 credit the law with recovering 31 species from the brink of extinction and further protecting another 2,000-plus or so plants and animals from what may have been utter doom. But what seemed like a great idea 40 years ago has also turned into one of the country’s most divisive pieces of legislation, quite often pitting landowners and business interests against the will of environmentalists and the public at large — and sometimes pitting environmentalists against that very same public when protecting species comes at the expense of regional economies. Altogether, the ESA now sits at the core of America’s philosophical divide, which — in admittedly simplistic, extreme terms — ponders this question: Do we protect the Earth at all costs with greater resulting hassles for humankind, or do we enable humankind to thrive at every possible turn, at the expense of the Earth and the rest of its inhabitants? One of the foremost authorities on how this situation came to be is UCSB’s Peter Alagona, an environmental historian who teaches the popular intro class to environmental studies, among other undergrad and upper division courses. Having become fascinated with the plight of endangered species as a kid — and exploring that interest at Northwestern, UCSB, UCLA, Harvard, and Stanford — Alagona has been researching the evolution of the ESA for the better part of a decade. In May 2013, he published his ﬁrst book, After the Grizzly: Endangered Species and the Politics of Place in California, focusing on the individual sagas of the Delta smelt, desert tortoise, San Joaquin kit fox, and California condor to evaluate the successes and failures of the ESA, 40 years in. Though Alagona’s book examines the myriad and complicated issues in depth, his conclusion is crystal clear: “The take-home message is that the Endangered Species Act has done a really good job of preventing extinctions, but it’s done a really poor job promoting the recovery of species that are on the list.” He answered a lot more of my questions during a couple of conversations last year, and what follows is an edited version of our talks.

they initiated isn’t working, and we do need a lot more habitat conservation in the old way of setting land aside, but there is no amount of land that you could do that would be enough. We shouldn’t turn all of our wilderness over to the mining companies, but we need to think of conservation as involving the entire landscape, including places where people live and work — not just parks you visit once a year. Aldo Leopold used to think about this idea of how to better conserve or improve habitats that are close to where we produce commodities. We need more of that, not less protected areas. But that could mean changing the priorities of some of these groups. Some are already doing it, like the Nature Conservancy, but they’ve gotten some ﬂack for using grazing as a grassland management tool. But that could keep weeds at bay and restore native grasses. This requires a little reorientation toward thinking of habitat not just as how we want to see it, which is often as parks and preserves, but thinking of habitat in the way that these species see it, which is resources to be used. Where do private landowners fit into the mix? When I go around and talk to farmers and ranchers, which I do a lot, they see themselves as land managers, and they say that they really love wildlife and always have and that they consider themselves conservationists. But there needs to be a balance for them. If you actually gave them clear incentives, like money or tax breaks, they would manage their land for conservation because they respond to the market. And they will be happy to, because they like the wildlife. One criticism that economists have of the ESA is that the beneﬁts of species conservation accrue to society but the costs are borne by a relatively small population of individuals. So let’s have the political will to meet that head-on, to incentivize the kinds of actions that people in society say they want. It’s a matter of putting your money where your mouth is. I don’t have a lot of faith in that happening anytime soon, at least from Washington. But at the state level, these things can work. Where does Santa Barbara fit into the endangered-species picture? Santa Barbara is at the heart of this, but it is really a
SCORECARD: The ESA prevented the extinction of creatures like the California condor, but has it helped species move away from the brink?
So it’s the 40th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act. How’s it going? The ESA has deﬁnitely done a lot of good, but
overall, the results to date are mixed. Of the around 1,500 species that have ever been listed as “endangered” in the United States, less than 2 percent have been removed from the list because they were recovered, but less than one percent have been removed from the list because they went extinct. So if the ESA is doing pretty well at preventing extinction and poorly at promoting recoveries, the question is: How can we actually recover more species instead of having them in a permanent purgatory? You don’t think that the popular practice of preserving habitat always works? On a very basic level, it’s true: If there
is no habitat, there can be no wild members of a species. But the logic then becomes,“Let’s just draw lines on a map, set areas aside, and hopefully that will solve all of our problems.” The truth is that it is much more complicated than that. Although preserving habitat has done a lot of good, it’s not the panacea that it’s often promoted as. One example is in the Mojave Desert, where we created wilderness for the desert tortoise. The idea was that if we just back oﬀ, we’ll be able to save the species. But the desert has been trans-
Southern California thing. From Santa Barbara to the Mexican border is really the country’s hot spot for biodiversity. There are so many endemic species and so many diﬀerent kinds of landscapes and so much growth and so many people. Southern California is really ground zero for the whole endangered-species issue, the place where a lot of policy innovations have been developed.
You argue that these innovations are really key to recovering more species but that the law makes it tough to try them out. At the time the ESA was created, it was geared toward
transparency and deliberate procedures for decision-making. It’s good at that, but what it doesn’t do very well is provide for experimentation and ﬂexibility. Those two things, ﬂexibility and stepwise, transparent decision-making, are kind of hard to gel. That’s a real challenge. But we could improve the ESA to promote more learningby-doing, more of what conservation biologists call “adaptive management.” You develop a hypothesis, and then you try it out. You don’t do it willy-nilly, because you don’t want to drive the species to extinction in the process, but you do it, and that guides your next hypothesis. It could be used without jeopardizing populations.
Peter Alagona will discuss his research on the Endangered Species Act as part of the Culture and Nature series at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History on February 6 at 7 p.m. See peter alagona.com. january 9, 2014

On Thursday, January , , our beautiful Roxan left this earthly life. Roxan grew up in Grants Pass, Oregon and Santa Barbara, California. She was a force to be reckoned with; fierce and determined, yet so sweet and fragile. Roxy was a deep soul who loved with her entire being. Many of us were blessed to have her in our lives; she has been an amazing mother, daughter, wife, sister, aunt, cousin, niece, and friend to so many. Our lives have all been forever changed by her and we will each carry her with us always. Many of us called Roxy our beauty… “Beauty is but eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.” Kahlil Gibran Roxy leaves behind her beloved son Joshua, her husband Joey, her mother Jane (Banick,) her sister Jennie (Scott and Ellie), her brother Josh (Chandra and Hunter), and many, many dear family and friends. “And when the earth has claimed your limbs then you shall truly dance… (KG). A Celebration of Roxan’s Life is scheduled for Saturday, January in Santa Barbara
Barbara Benning Hollister died at her home of years on December , at exactly : p.m. She left us peacefully in her sleep from heart failure. She was born on October , in Waverly, Kansas to Helen Marion Lindsey and Dr. Henry Millard Benning. She soon moved with her family and baby brother, Fritz, to Allegan, MI where her sister Julie was born. In her father enlisted in the Army Medical Corps and moved the family to Santa Barbara Hoff Army Hospital, a war facility for wounded soldiers. Babs, as she was known to her family and friends, attended Peabody Elementary, La Cumbre Junior High, Santa Barbara High and UCSB (Riviera Campus). In high school she cheered on the Dons football program,
met an upper classman on the team, Wilson Kenneth Jennings, and solidified lifelong friendships with her classmates which continued until her death. They held monthly luncheons at Café del Sol and called themselves “the Class of .” At college she was an honor student and an avid fan of the Gauchos, a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority and honored as “the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.” In she married Ken Jennings, and together they had four children: Bill, Matt, Sara and Joe. In Ken joined the Project Hope and the family lived abroad for a few years in Jakarta, Indonesia and Trujillo, Peru. Babs traveled the very long distance to Jakarta from California with four small children and an enormous box of medical books for Ken, with no complaints, as always. In , Babs remarried to J.J. Hollister. They were married at their Arroyo Hondo Ranch, then made their home on Cielito Lane, where they remained for the past years. J.J. brought three young children to their life together from his previous marriage to Virginia Castagnola: Scott, George and Cate. This made a total of seven children for Babs to take care of which she loved! She was a lifelong member of the Junior League and her Class of monthly luncheon group. In addition, she was a member of the SB Tennis Club, Goleta Athletic Club and SB Community Church. More recently, she loved playing Dimes monthly with her friends from the Pescatore Club. She was also a life member of the Farm Bureau and Calavo. She was an avid reader throughout her life and a great enthusiast of classical music, often attending the Music Academy Summer programs. Nothing much could distract our Babs from her beloved Dodgers, and when baseball season was finished, the San Fran-
cisco ers and Stanford football filled the gap. The National League was her greatest passion. Babs was an accomplished backpacker in her day, both in the Sierras and Wind River Range of Wyoming. She was co-owner of a wilderness cabin at Pistol Creek Ranch on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. She enjoyed many a summer fly fishing and hiking the rugged trails. She and J.J. frequently vacationed in Mexico. She was also an expert scuba diver and explored the sunken ships and reefs of Truk Lagoon and other underwater South Pacific sites, as well as extensive diving off of Santa Cruz Island, traveling there on their boat,“The Bonito.” From - she and J.J. lived on the Arroyo Hondo ranch in an historic Ortega adobe. For many years she managed the Long Horn Cattle operation of her sisterin-law, Cinny H. Nagel, while she tended her own acre avocado orchard. Among the many challenges were avoiding the numerous rattlesnakes, (well protected by her handy Derringer pistol) and occasional marauding black bears after an easy snack of harvested avocados, sitting in bins. Her gentle and loving spirit will be missed by her devoted family and friends. She is survived by her loving husband of years, J.J. Hollister III, her brother, Fritz Benning (Linnea), her sister, Julie Allen (Steve Johnson), her children, Bill Jennings (Sue), Matt Jennings, Sara Pelton, Joe Jennings (Trish), her three step-children, Scott Hollister (Kaaren), George Hollister (Cathy), Cate Wallenfels (Mike), her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Private services will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to the Arroyo Hondo Preserve and Hospice of Santa Barbara.
Doris Jansma of Santa Barbara died on -- at the age of . She was born in Indiana; she and her husband, Dolph, retired to Santa Barbara in . Doris resided at Valle Verde since . Known for her hospitality and volunteering at hospitals, churches and schools, she also loved to sing, sketch and paint, was a voracious reader, and loved to walk the beaches. Doris is survived by her daughters and nephew, Arianna Jansma, Anna Laura Jansma and Matt Clugston, of Santa Barbara, and her daughter and niece, Debbi Frank and Lindsey Carter, of Escondido.

enjoyed Mayor Schneider’s answers and admire her views expressed in the online article“The S.B. Questionnaire: Helene Schneider”[12/30/13,independent .com/helene]. I was surprised to see somewhat negative comments. This questionnaire is based on one made famous by Marcel Proust. I miss the days of print newspaper when “letters to the editor” were chosen by the editors to represent diﬀering views on the issue and were often entertaining and enlightening after the purely negative, misinformed, and poorly written submissions were ﬁltered out. They would also vet the letter and require the author to provide their real name, which in and of itself would preclude much of the hateful rants and uninformed responses that make up too much of today’s online discussions and comments. — Hugh Margerum, S.B. (from online comments)
No Water, No Mo’?
ith no rain in sight and reservoirs so low, why do we see no action by local water districts to control water use? Los Angeles has been operating on a droughtwatch basis for over a year, yet here we still see unlimited lawn watering and no warnings about the fact we’re in a serious drought. We should have implemented mandatory water rationing a year ago; there is no excuse for not beginning it now. While many people have voluntarily reduced their water usage, put in gray-water plumbing, and set up water-harvesting systems (which yield nothing if there is no rain!), there are still pockets of high usage like some Montecito estates that haven’t really been addressed. Nobody should have the right to waste water on things like huge lawns during this crisis. So we ask our city and county oﬃcials: What are you planning to do to protect Santa Barbara? — Linda and Larry Buzzell-Saltzman, S.B.
Pining for County Control
hanks for Lyz Hoﬀman’s recap of Goleta’s poor planning [News, “Good Land for Development,” 1/2/14, independent.com/goodland]. Our Good Land City Council jams more and more projects into the Los Angeles–like Storke/Hollister intersection but makes no attempt to match development with infrastructure. Exhibit A: What happened to the pedestrian-bike bridge? I requested a Freedom of Information Act request to the council that unearthed the following ineptitude: “… we have been unable to locate any documents” regarding funds set aside for this ped-bike bridge by the Camino Real Marketplace traﬃc mitigation fees. So, where is the money? Additionally, the last time the bridge was discussed, on April 5, 2004, one citizen recommended the project to be tabled — and so it was — apparently ad inﬁnitum. Meanwhile, crossing conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians get increasingly hazardous with each coﬀerlining project. Again, where is the alternative transportation planning? Talk is cheap. The Goleta council’s negligence reﬂects poorly on its overall competence and warrants a Grand Jury investigation. Lois Capps and former supervisor Gail Marshall, two politicians truly concerned about alternative transportation, actually had state grants for the ped-bike bridge. Our city’s Drive-Through Council allowed these grants to lapse — arguably because they were too busy approving developments. Sigh. One almost pines for the good old days of county control. — Dan Wesolowski, Goleta
For the Record
¶ Regarding “Good Land for Development” [News, 1/2/14, independent.com/goodland], in November, the City Council decided to postpone making a ﬁnal decision on the McDonald’s drive-through until a future date.

Twerking into 2014
SPLITSVILLE: I see where tech investor Tim
Draper wants to split California six ways, lumping Santa Barbara County in with (gasp!) L.A. As William Bendix used to say in his The Life of Riley series, “What a revoltin’ development this is.” Who wants to be part of a place that has sheriﬀ ’s deputies who routinely beat up people, is jammed with corrupt and/or brainless politicians, and writes zoning laws in disappearing ink? Then again, Draper’s six-states-out-of-one plan could have coupled us with (horrors!) Bakersﬁeld, which at least is far enough away to be ignored. Speaking of which, one of my New Year’s resolutions is not to slam Bakersﬁeld and its air-pollution problems, which rival those of Beijing. Draper does have a point though. He argues that the average Californian is sorely unrepresented in the U.S. Senate. Our Founding Fathers, in their (ahem) wisdom, decreed that all states get two senators each, regardless of population. Why? It’s complicated. They were trying to hammer together a nation. Result: A resident of Wyoming, with its 582,658 population, has vastly more political power than a Californian, whose clout is watered down among 38 million-plus Golden Staters. They also gave us the Electoral College, a political version of baseball’s inﬁeld ﬂy rule, which only the court can understand. But under Draper’s plan, we’d get 10 more senators, evening up things, in a way. But Demo-
crats worry that the way Draper drew the lines, most would be Republicans. Don’t worry: It’s DOA. SCHADENFREUDE: The last days of 2013 pro-
vided us with supreme political poetic justice. The Mormons of Utah, having shipped money and misinformation south to help pass anti-gay marriage Proposition in 2008, are shocked, shocked, that a federal judge and appeals courts have ruled that Utah’s own holy ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. But on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court, acting on an appeal from Utah, temporarily blocked samesex marriage there and sent the case back to an appeals court for more consideration. This leaves the estimated 1,000 people who have already taken out marriage licenses in some state of suspended animation. To be, or not to be? The Supremes, by the way, previously put the kibosh on Prop. . All of which raises the question of why nine unelected judges, appointed to the federal bench for life and who meet in secret and decide key issues on narrow 5-4 votes, are ruling on whether other people can get married. TY WARNER GOING TO JAIL? The Beanie Baby
billionaire is due to be sentenced on January 15 for tax evasion, but will he be tossed behind bars? He’s promised to pay more than $16 million in back taxes and interest and a $53 million penalty but still faces up to 57 months in the

ALL HAIL LA SANTA CECILIA ¡VIVA EL ARTE! BRINGS GRAMMY NOMINEES INTO THE CLASSROOM
hether or not you’re a parent, you’ve proba-
bly lamented the dissolution of arts education programs in our public schools. Some have even gone so far as to say that the nation’s art-annihilating budget cuts are signaling the “end of the American Dream.” In the wake of these changes, after-school programs and nonproﬁt organizations have popped up by the dozens, attempting to ﬁll the void by oﬀering students everything from musical instruction to pottery classes to dance and yoga, often at little to no cost. Still, few area advocates have succeeded in bringing art back into the classroom quite the way ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! has. Started in 2005 as a collaboration between UCSB Arts & Lectures, the Marjorie Luke Theatre, Guadalupe Cultural Arts & Education Center, and Isla Vista Youth Projects, ¡Viva el Arte! aims to reach out to Santa Barbara’s Latino communities with free public performances and outreach programs. Last year alone, the organization connected with more than 17,000 children and adults in the greater Santa Barbara County area. And this week, they bring Los Angeles act La Santa Cecilia to town for a three-day mini-tour that includes performances at Isla Vista School, Guadalupe City Hall, and Santa Barbara Junior High. As for the talent, the timing couldn’t be any better. After nearly seven years of cutting its teeth in and around L.A., La Santa Cecilia is ﬁnally reaping the beneﬁts of all its hard work.

DUNES: A scene from the dance ﬁlm Upon a Fallen Sea.
Things seem to be looking up for Ninette Paloma — and not just her students. The mastermind and head instructor behind the Santa Barbara Centre for Aerial Arts has been making some pretty big leaps in the last few years, leaps that have included moving into a larger studio, expanding her exquisite aerial dance company, and now, creating the ﬁrst Contemporary Floor to Air Festival, which takes place throughout Santa Barbara this February. The concept is simple enough: eight aerial dance companies from all over the globe; ﬁve days of workshops at S.B. Centre for Aerial Arts’ home base; three “soirées” for dancers; and one gala public performance, slated to take place at the Lobero Theatre on March 1. Whether or not you’ve caught Paloma and her dancers in action — using suspended-in-air apparatus like trapeze, fabrics, lyra, corde lisse, and tightwire — Floor to Air’s grand ﬁnale will be a must-see. Just be sure to keep your eyes on the sky. At various locations, Sunday, February 23 - Sunday, March 2. Call 284-8785 or visit sbaerial.com. — AC and ES

Santa Barbara’s Psychedelic Summer may have come and gone, but that’s not stopping UCSB’s Associated Students Program Board from getting in on the action. This month, the organization brings psych rockers of Montreal to campus in support of the band’s latest, 12th album, Lousy with Sylvianbriar. Carrying on in the grand tradition of other greats from Athens, Georgia, like R.E.M. and The B-s, of Montreal makes music that’s as bizarrely amorphous as it is unconventionally infectious. On Lousy, twangy spaghetti-western guitars bump and grind against heady synths, dreamy pop melodies, and, in one speciﬁc instance, a little nod to Nico-era The Velvet Underground. In similar fashion, frontman Kevin Barnes’s lyrics continue to fall delightfully left of center; he’s ﬂamboyantly over-the-top one moment and hilariously tongue-in-cheek the next, calling to mind
J A Z Z
some glammed-out love child of Donovan, Dylan, and Prince. What’s best? With more than a decade of touring behind them, of Montreal’s live show has morphed into an event that’s just as colorful, outrageous, and richly textured as the source material.

A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN AT RUBICON THEATRE
A FREE Community Screening. Experience The Granada’s New Digital Projection System
Eugene O’Neill’s dark vision of New England family life remains at the heart of the American theater tradition. Despite near-constant revision of the dysfunctional family drama genre by such talented followers as Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Edward Albee, and Tracy Letts, O’Neill continues to own the sense that while it’s possible to go home again, it’s dead certain that if you do, you will regret it. Jenny Sullivan will direct Rubicon’s March production of A Moon for the Misbegotten, and Joseph Fuqua will play the leading role of James Tyrone Jr., the grieving eldest son of the drug- and alcohol-devastated Tyrone clan. He’s got to deal with the house in Connecticut where his mother died and get back to New York before it kills him, too. See it and you’ll know where the insanity of August: Osage County comes from, theatrically speaking. At Rubicon Theatre March 12 - April 6. Call 667-2900 or visit rubicontheatre.org. — CD

ALICE AYCOCK DRAWINGS: SOME STORIES ARE WORTH REPEATING AT UCSB’S ART, DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE MUSEUM
IMAGES FROM NEAR AND FAR: (LEFT) “Tri Fin at Augustine” by Hank Pitcher. (ABOVE) “Rock, Paper, Scissors (India ’07)” by Alice Aycock. (BELOW) Detail from Thatcher Hillegas’s mural at S.B. Art Foundry.
This large two-part exhibition documents the extraordinary achievements of Alice Aycock, a proliﬁc public sculptor and a key ﬁgure in the transition from conceptualism to feminism in American art of the latter 20th century. Drawings, plans, and photographs of Aycock’s work from 1971-1984 will be on view at UCSB’s Art, Design & Architecture Museum, while the years from 1984 to the present, during which Aycock’s drawing practice was augmented by computer graphics, will be presented at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA). In a clever move that will maximize the impact and the educational value of the Aycock show, SBMA simultaneously mounts a complementary exhibit devoted to another major feminist and conceptualist — Michelle Stuart: Drawn From Nature. The coordination of these three important exhibitions represents collaborative programming at the highest level, and the work will be stunning in every way.

LA SANTA CECILIA
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
“New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation.” – NPR
The Grammy-nominated musician and his band, Orleans Avenue, know how to rile up a crowd with their infectious, highoctane blend of tight funk, jazz-rock and slinky R&B – or, as they like to call it, “supafunkrock.”
BAILAMOS: “There’s a big desire amongst us to just experiment,” says La Santa Cecilia frontwoman La Marisoul, who mixes traditional Mexican music with powerhouse jazz and soul vocal deliveries.
own stories,” Marisoul recalls,“and we just kind of came together. We started playing open mikes, coﬀee shops, fundraisers — wherever people would let us play we would play — and it just grew from there.” As evidenced by their songs, La Santa Cecilia’s members come from a broad range of musical backgrounds; traditional Mexican folklóricos and boleros mix and meld with blues, jazz, punk, ska, Afro-Latin, and soul, creating a sound that calls to mind a female-fronted Ozomatli for the next generation. “There’s a big desire amongst us to just experiment,” says Marisoul,“to mix around the genres and not be in one box or another.” Take Treinta Días, an album that operates far outside the proverbial “Latin music” pigeonhole. Named for the 30-day struggles to make rent that band members faced over the years, Treinta plays out like an unabashed celebration of life, loss, and growing up in Los Angeles. Unrequited love is at the center of “Losing Game,” a song that ﬁnds Marisoul’s soulful, Alice Russell–style vocals tangoing with guest vocalist Elvis Costello’s low-registered speak-sing. On album closer “Ice el Hielo,” the singer tackles her real-life struggles with immigration and identity, set to the tune of a somber bossa-nova-inspired guitar line. “We never got together to promote our political ideas. We got together to write music and to celebrate what you can do with music,” Marisoul says of the song. “That said, there are deﬁnitely some things that we grew up with and that we’re aware of.‘El Hielo’ was deﬁnitely written with intention. We’re talking about immigration. We’re talking about the country. Some of us were brought here when we were young. Some of us were born here, but we can all identify with being immigrants, or coming from that experience. We all grew up knowing about La Migra.” In many ways, “El Hielo” is a prime example of both what La Santa Cecilia does best and why they’re so well equipped to act as musical ambassadors to a younger generation. Born of working-class parents, they picked up instruments young, forged their own path, and, through a great deal of hard work and persistence, are now capable of sustaining themselves through their art. “From elementary school to high school, you’re taught that you can do whatever you want if you work hard, if you study,” says Marisoul.“It’s not ’til later that you realize how many of your peers or your friends or your cousins aren’t allowed those same opportunities, because of not having proper documentation.” “That’s one of the big reasons we started the band — to give back and contribute to music in some way, to return what it gave to us in our lives,” adds Ramírez. “It’s really important to us to not just drive around and play at the House of Blues. We want to go into schools, teach kids, show them what we do, and what music means to us and what we’ve been able to accomplish with it.” ■

Adventures with Enzo
Upon arriving in the U.S. from their native France years ago, Sonia and Laurent Colasse saw how hard it was for their older children to adapt to the English language. It was easy for their youngest kid, however. So Sonia decided to pen The Adventures of Enzo, which has grown into a series of 12 books aimed at teaching basic English, French, and Italian to kids ages 3-7.
above: Alex Hoskins waits for a burger at On the Alley at the harbor with her dad, Mark Hoskins. Five-year-old Alex and her family came to Santa Barbara for the day from Ventura to get away from the wind and so that Alex could wheel around town on her Heelys, which she got for Christmas. left: “We like to vacation in our hometown!” said Mary Mathias while she and her husband enjoyed ice cream cones at the harbor. “We’re making the most of my last day of holiday vacation,” added her husband, Eckart. The Mathiases met 45 years ago while attending UCSB. After spending 17 years in Maryland, they are happy to be home again in Santa Barbara.
Guinea Pig & Bunny Care
Although they have a porcine reference in their name, guinea pigs have no relation to oinkers. Rather, they are domesticated rodents, and their size, fluff, and pleasant personality make them lovely pets. While guinea pigs are low maintenance, they do have certain needs that must be met. As such, BUNS is holding a class to teach first-time owners the basics of handling and caring for the timid critters. The first hour focuses on feeding and upkeep; the last half hour is devoted to training techniques and games to play with your pet(s). Knowing proper guinea pig care allows the cavies to feel safe and thus bond with you, their owner. Then, when they see you coming, they will give a wee whistle of delight. The event, which is sponsored by BUNS, is also open to folks with bunnies. Saturday, January 11, 1-2:30 p.m., Humane Society Education Building, 5399 Overpass Road, Goleta. Free to Goleta residents; suggested donations for others: $5 (individual); $10 (family). Ages 6+. For more information, call 708-1418 or visit bunssb.org/classes-events. — Michelle Drown
How have the books been received by the public? My experiences at book-signings show that the public approves. The children adore the drawings and the stories; the adults find my words adorable, but foreign languages scare them away. The adults are usually afraid to read the stories in another language, afraid to pronounce the words incorrectly. That’s why it’s important to include a CD, which is what we are preparing. What do you hope for this series? I want this series to be found in the hand of every child of this world. I’d like schools to use them as a tool to learn new languages and hope that The Adventures of Enzo continue the trip with other stories. See soloinfinity.com.

For some, reading not only comes easy but also is a pleasurable experience; for others, it requires mental exertion and can even be arduous and frustrating. In an effort to make reading a joy for all adults, the S.B. Public Library offers a oneon-one literacy program and is currently in need of tutors. Becoming a tutor requires taking a nine-hour, two-session course to learn techniques for helping folks improve not only their reading skills but also their spelling and writing abilities. To qualify as a mentor, you must be age 18 or older, read and speak English proficiently, complete the tutorial workshop, and be available two to four hours per week. Part one of the course takes place Saturday, January 11, and part two is Saturday, January 25, both 1-5:30 p.m. Meet in the Townley Room at the S.B. Central Library (40 E. Anapamu St.).

Why is it important to introduce children to new languages at a young age? In my opinion, young children learn new languages easier than adults. s. Our experience has confirmed it. We are French, and when my two older children arrived in the U.S. at the ages of 7 and 11, we saw their difficulty in learning the new language. Our son Enzo went to a Montessori preschool for two years, where both French and English were spoken each day. Enzo is naturally bilingual. It’s important that children learn to communicate with their friends and to share their different cultures.

Airport Aides Saving Species
arilyn Fox (pictured) eyed the casually dressed young man as he attempted to walk down the up escalator in the Santa Barbara Airport’s terminal building. She has often witnessed this behavior from arriving (and some departing) passengers moving to and coming from the upper level, and she still is baﬄed why some people take such perverse pleasure in going against the escalators. “Some of them just love to do it, and they’re very determined,” the Goleta grandmother commented. “It’s hilarious to watch, but I do worry that someone might fall and hurt themselves.” To her knowledge, no one has fallen yet. I asked how often she sees people challenging the escalators. “Oh, probably 10 times a shift,” she replied. This is a partial estimate, since Fox patrols the terminal looking for visitors who need information or assistance only once a week for three hours. She is a certiﬁed ambassador for the Santa Barbara Municipal Airport, one of a cadre of about 15 volunteers trained to greet and direct visitors in and around the airport’s terminals, answering questions and collecting feedback for airport administration. This is something this retired travel agent relishes doing, is good at, and has done since the ﬁrst group of Airport Ambassadors donned their navy blazers in 2010. Another veteran ambassador is Sally Coye, who has lived in the Santa Barbara area for less than four years but took to the program like the former ﬂight attendant she is. Coye’s introduction to the airport was a tour hosted by the Newcomers Club, which led to her recruitment by Hazel Johns, assistant airport director. “She told me I’d be a natural for the position,” said Coye, who wanted to help her new community in some meaningful way. Because they see how visitors use the terminal, the ambassadors also provide practical suggestions about what could be improved. The airlines’ ticketing and baggage check-in counters in the new, $72 million complex, for example, have name signs readable only from the front. Some volunteers have suggested that horizontal name signs above the counter spaces would help direct passengers approaching the terminal’s counter from the sides. Santa Barbara airport is one of the few U.S. airports to have the services of a volunteer corps of guides-cum-greeters, according to Fox. “I’ve traveled widely,” she said, “and only Phoenix airport has anything similar [to the ambassadors]. They call them ‘helpers.’ ” If you are interested in becoming an airport — Vic Cox ambassador, call 967-7111.

UCSB Men’s Team Starts the Season with Eyes on Becoming NCAA Champs This Year PAUL WELLMAN PHOTOS
by John Zant
he college men’s volleyball season commenced last weekend with Harvard striving to be known as the UCSB of the East. By virtue of winning a three-set mini-match against the Gauchos, Harvard played for the championship of the UCSB Asics Invitational against top-ranked Long Beach State. The ers took the Crimson down in four sets. UCSB took third place with a convincing sweep of UC San Diego (25-23, 25-11, 25-16). It was a promising start for the Gauchos, who will be pounding balls soon in the Mountain Paciﬁc Sports Federation (MPSF), a conference that comprises teams from the Pac-, Big West, and Mountain West, and more often than not produces the national champion. UCSB has been runner-up four times in the NCAA Finals — most recently in 2011 when Ohio State won a ﬁve-set thriller — and the Gauchos hope the day will come when they can trash the perpetual trophy as the best program never to win the crown. The MPSF is loaded with athletes culled from the beaches and high school gyms of Southern California, where volleyball is a year-round sport. Harvard snagged a few in building its program. Consider the position of setter, the quarterback of the team. UCSB’s best player may be setter Jonah Seif, but three other MPSF setters are preseason All-Americans: USC’s Micah Christenson, Long Beach’s Connor Olbright, and Pepperdine’s Matt West. Christenson is the setter for the U.S. men’s national team. The best thing about Seif is that he’s the youngest, just a sophomore, and also the tallest, at 68. While his primary function is to set up the Gauchos’s attackers — he had the fourth highest assist total in the nation as a freshman last year — Seif can hit the ball with authority when the opportunity presents itself, and he can do damage defensively as a blocker. He displayed a wicked serve against UC San Diego, scoring points on four aces. “I like setting our hitters,” Seif said, “but it feels good to score on a block or a serve. It’s those points that really separate you in rally scoring.” Seif was a natural 511 setter when he HOMEBOY HUDDLE: started playing volleyball in high school. “I expected to grow a little more, but I didn’t think 68” he said. Among the schools recruiting him out of Thousand Oaks was Harvard (he had a 4.33 GPA). He wanted to stay in California “but not L.A.” Santa Barbara was a perfect ﬁt. Nine other schools came here last weekend for the 50th annual Asics Invitational (formerly known as the UCSB/ Elephant Bar Collegiate Invitational). They were divided into two pools of ﬁve, and the Gauchos came out with a signature win against Stanford in pool play.“They’re a good team, and we just put the ball on them,” Seif said. They hammered Harvard 25-11 in the ﬁrst set, but the Crimson came back to win the next two. “Our guys can play, but they need to improve in certain areas,” UCSB’s sixth-year coach Rick McLaughlin said.“We need to work on the thinking of the game from play to play. We do that and we’ll be okay.” Receiving all-tournament honors for the Gauchos were Ryan Thompson, a 69 senior middle blocker from Costa Mesa, and Matt Hanley, a 64 senior hitter from Malibu. Hanley, who had 10 kills against UCSD, is a transfer from

UCLA with a strong volleyball pedigree. His father, John Hanley, was a Santa Barbara High teammate of Karch Kiraly and an accomplished beach player, and his mother, Linda (Robertson) Hanley, played on the beach at the Atlanta Olympics. Jake Staahl, Evan Licht, and Austin Kingi combined their skills for 17 kills against UCSD’s Tritons. Thompson and Seif each received credit for seven blocks. Long Beach State senior hitter Dalton Ammerman was named tournament MVP. The Gauchos will not play the ers until February 14. They will play 24 MPSF matches in all, trying to earn the right to host the pivotal conference playoﬀs in late April that will determine the NCAA tournament participants. UCSB will host ﬁve matches during the rest of this month — Friday, January 10, against Concordia; January 17, the MPSF opener against Paciﬁc; January 18, Stanford; and two matches against Hawai‘i, January 30 and 31. The home court is Robertson Gym, which has a spring-loaded ﬂoor the players adore.“This is the best gym,” Seif said.“The ﬂoor is
ROSE BOWL SPOILS: Michigan State rewarded football coach Mark Dantonio with a lucrative new contract after the Spartans’ 24-20 victory over Stanford in the Rose Bowl. The late Duﬀy Daugherty, a wise and witty Michigan State coach in the ’50s and ’60s, brought his greatest team to Pasadena in 1966, and it suﬀered a shocking 14-12 defeat to UCLA. Daugherty retired in Santa Barbara, and many former players attended his 1987 funeral at the Old Mission. I’ll never forget Daugherty’s retelling of the aftermath of the 1966 Rose Bowl: “After we lost to UCLA, I caught the ﬂu and had to go to bed. Here comes this telegram saying,‘The Board of Trustees wishes you a speedy recovery by a vote of 4 to 3.’ ” NFL WILL MAKE HIM JOHNNY CASH ... OR JOHNNY CONCUSSION: I got tired of hearing bowl-game announc-
ers pointing out that every talented underclassman from Johnny Manziel to a 300-pound lineman I’ve never heard of is “almost certainly playing his last college game.” Hooray for Brett Hundley, the UCLA quarterback who will be sticking around.

NICE PIPES: Organist, scholar, and former UCSB professor James Welch returns to campus this Friday, January 10, for a concert in celebration of the school’s Flentrop organ, which turns 40 this year.
hen you order a new car with “all the bells and whistles,” recognized or not, you’re tearing a page from pipe-organ history. Mighty theater organs like the Arlington Theatre’s Wonder Morton — great symphonic machines built during the silent-movie era — not only blow 10 thousand pipes but also shake and whirl a host of special eﬀects like sleigh bells and train whistles. With the early-music revival of the mid-20th century, and its hunger for “authentic” instruments and styles, a lean, neo-baroque sensibility prevailed in the pipe-organ world, accompanied by a retreat from the electronic advantages of modern engineering and entertainment-culture excesses. It comes as no surprise, then, that when designs were considered for a UCSB campus pipe organ to be installed in the late 1960s, the academic currents of the time prevailed, and a mechanicalaction organ made by Dutch manufacturer Flentrop was chosen. “These organs were built — are built — in the old style, the way that organs were always built before electricity,“ said organist and scholar James Welch by phone last week. Rather than using electronic servos or pneumatics to control the air ﬂow into the pipes, so-called
“tracker” organs put the player solidly in touch with the valves. “The trackers are connecting rods that go between the keys and the valves that let the air into the pipes,” Welch explained.“It’s an organ that if Bach were to walk in himself and sit down, he’d say,‘Oh yeah, sure, this is what I know.’ ” UC Berkeley organist Lawrence Moe gave the instrument its inaugural recital in 1972. Meanwhile, Welch was pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in organ performance from Stanford University. In 1977, he was oﬀered an adjunct professor gig at UCSB, a position he held for 16 years. During his tenure, Welch performed at least 25 recitals on the Flentrop organ and sponsored regular recitals by his students. But Welch’s departure in 1993 marked the suspension of active life for the Flentrop. No one knew the instrument so well, and few have known it since. With a dwindling of music-department interest and funds (and no Sunday service to keep its bellows regularly inspired), the instrument has languished half its life largely unused. But on Friday night, Welch returns to the keys, stops, and trackers of the formidable Flentrop — his ﬁrst recital on the instrument since 1997 — for a

LOOKING BACK, FORGING AHEAD
ast January, Santa Barbara Dance Theater (SBDT) gave its ﬁrst performance under new director Christopher Pilaﬁan. Titled A Leap of Faith, that evening-length production showcased a sleek company of four dancers in a series of Pilafian’s solos, duets, trios, and quartets. One year later, as the company prepares for its latest production, Pilafian finds himself reflecting on the growth of the past year, the deeper traditions that inform his work, and the future he’s living into. “Contemporary dance has to stay experimental, so I’m cognizant of the need to move forward and try new things,” he PASSING TIME: Dancers Christina Sanchez explained last week. “At the same time, as (left) and Tracy R.

GETTING TO KNOW DUB THOMPSON
Agoura Rockers Get Weird at Isla Vista Theater WARD ROBINSON
by Aly Comingore
eet Dub Thompson. The Agoura Hills–based brainchild of longtime friends Evan Laﬀer and Matt Pulos makes the kind of oddly cacophonous, noisy groove rock that music purists love to hate. There’s a hint of Can, a touch of The Zombies, and an undeniable Captain Beefheart vibe running through the band’s soon-to-bereleased debut: an eight-track oﬀering ﬁlled with oﬀ-kilter pop experiments that boast titles like “Epicondyles” (a vampy, fuzzed-out musing on personal discontentment) and “Pterodactyls” (about the ﬂying dinosaurs, of course). It also stands to mention that both Laﬀer and Pulos are just 19 years old. This Friday, Dub Thompson makes its return to Santa Barbara for an extra-special show as part of the Magic Lantern ﬁlm series. I spoke with Laﬀer and Pulos about band names, their parents’ record collections, and recording with Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado. How did you guys meet? GOOD: Dub Thompson’s Evan Laffer (left) and Evan: We met in middle school. We weren’t Matt Pulos plug it at Isla Vista Theater this Friday, close friends, though. In high school we had January 10, in support of their as-yet-unreleased debut. PE together and kind of just started talking about music. bought a lot of canned food, ate oﬀ of children’s plates. But Matt: I heard he played drums. Evan: Yeah. And I knew he played guitar. At some point we recorded a bunch of songs. We had no idea if it was an we hung out and played them at the same time. We were 14. LP or a record or that anybody would ever want to buy it. What were you listening to at 14 years old? Evan: Talking Heads. Pretty much only Talking Heads. And They Might Be Giants.
Were there other bands before Dub Thompson? Evan: We had a lot of names. Matt: A lot of fuckin’ names. Evan: Our ﬁrst band was called Hot Father. Then we were The Mint Condition, then Nuevo Faves. Matt: They were all horrible. Evan: For a while we were known as The Wolf Thompson Band, which was amazing. We played at our high school; that was how we were introduced. Wolf Thompson was the name of the dean of our middle school. He was a 64 walking slab of meat who made me cry when I was 11. He made a really great name for a band. Outside of the high-school gig, were you guys playing shows? Matt: There were no shows. Evan: We had a really out-there repertoire. For most of high school, we were really into Can and The Zombies. Liking Can was our excuse to not record anything and just jam and jam and jam. Matt: We totally did the Can thing where we would just jam until songs happened. Evan: Even some songs on the new record came out of writing like that. Can you tell me a bit about recording the album? I know you guys worked with Rado from Foxygen. Matt: Yeah. We went to this tiny house that Rado was renting in Bloomington, Indiana, and slept on the ﬂoor. It was very primitive, really. There was no silverware. We
How do you describe Dub Thompson’s sound? Evan: Oh god. The one thing we’ve been saying a lot lately is that it’s kind of impressionistic rock music. It’s very formless, lots of broad strokes of — Matt: It’s like liquid punk, or something. Evan: I like liquid punk. Matt: But we can’t really describe it. It’s very listenable, but it’s not really catchy. That doesn’t mean it’s not sexy, though. It’s very sexy. I feel like Calabasas/Westlake/Agoura Hills has a pretty rough track record as far as music is concerned. Matt: [Laughs.] Foxygen is number one. Evan: Followed closely by Hoobastank. Matt: Linkin Park, Incubus, The Neighbourhood — we’re following in that tradition. What’s next for Dub Thompson? Evan: The next record is going to be immensely diﬀerent. Matt: And way better. Evan: But as a band, we’re trying to tap into something juicier and more directly weird. Our friend Jackie is kind of the prime scholar on Dub Thompson at the moment. She said,“If you listen to Foxygen, it sounds sweet, but they hate you. With Dub Thompson it sounds really awful, but they love you.” Dub Thompson plays at Isla Vista Theater (960 Embarcadero del Norte) on Friday, January 10, at 9:30 p.m. with The Trashberries.

NEW FDA A PPROVED W EIGHT LOSS DRUG, Q SYMIA !
obody making scads of money needs to listen to critics. Who cares if Adam Sandler ﬁlms are stupid as long as kids keep shelling out for popcorn and tickets? Horror ﬁlms, which have always been exploitative and inventive, are no exception. How many limbs should Saw saw? How Insidious does it get before it’s just tedious? “All the way to the bank” is a franchise-maker’s smug reply, and this franchise began as a gold mine. The ﬁrst Paranormal Activity cost $15,000 to make, according to Box Oﬃce Mojo, and earned $100 million. Of course, there will be sequels, though tight producers who spend no money on stars, sets, or special eﬀects are only making 10 times their investment on more recent ﬁlms. This one is a spin-oﬀ (Paranormal Activity is due later this year), and though it promised a refreshingly diverse approach to its rehashing of the Blair Witch found-footage horror shtick, it ultimately goes to familiar ground for a dumb conclusion. The director’s sheer laziness has turned the experience of waiting for novel thrills into the more mundane shock of having our collective pocket picked. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones actually oﬀers a brilliant premise. Set gloriously in the nearby city of Oxnard in a middle-class Latino apartment house, the ﬁlm oﬀers a wide-open opportunity to employ Mexican-American folkways, superstitions, and esoterica to create a story that plays for a largely ignored Hispanic audience, as well as to curious gringos. And for the ﬁrst half hour, that vein is pulsing with possibilities. The apartment house below belongs to a bruja. Strange noises draw some recent high school grads with a camera to explore its dark secrets. Instead of pursuing this diverse thread, though, the ﬁlm starts stealing from a dozen other movies and then ends in the same damn place the all other Paranormal movies do — literally. Maybe people making tons of money don’t have to listen to critics, but they ought to reward their faithful. Director Christopher Landon includes a number of novelties and twists, like a Simon toy that channels demons. But it turns out he only had a hook and didn’t respect his audience enough to see it through to good movie pleasure. As my scary-moviegoing friend Glenn Leopold put it, “We’re the marked ones, the audience.” How long shamelessly lazy ﬁlmmakers ■ can rip oﬀ their fans should not be a smug point of pride.

Three strong-willed sisters converge on their childhood home following a family crisis. Meryl Streep, Juliette Lewis, and Julia Roberts star. Riviera Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (105 mins.; PG-13: sequences of violence and intense action, brief strong language)
As a young CIA analyst, Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) discovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy. Camino Real/ Paseo Nuevo (starts Thu., Jan. 16)
The Legend of Hercules (100 mins.; PG-13: sequences of intense combat action and violence, some sensuality)

SCREENINGS ✯ 12 Years a Slave (134 mins.; R: violence/ cruelty, some nudity, brief sexuality)
Set in the antebellum U.S., 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 performance of Chiwetel Ejiofor. (JW) Sun., Jan. 12, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai
Fruitvale Station (85 mins.; R: some vio-
vasive language, some sexual content, brief violence)
David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) writes and directs this drama about a 1970s con man and his partner, who are forced into working for a loose-cannon FBI agent. Russell’s latest ﬁlm takes its place in the ranks of conning-the-conner cinema lorded over by greats like The Grifters and Catch Me If You Can in which wits and kitsch prevail even as violence lurks around every corner. (JW) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo
✯ Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (119 mins.; PG-13: crude humor,
San Diego newsman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) travels to New York for a job at the ﬁrst 24-hour news channel. Rather than the mere condescending tweak of 1970s local news, Anchorman actually tries to score satiric points. Of course, the whole movie’s ﬂocked with jokes calibrated for stoner-quality quoting, too. (DJP) Fairview/Metro 4
✯ Frozen (108 mins.; PG: some action, mild rude humor) Anna and Kristoﬀ unite on an epic journey to ﬁnd Anna’s sister Elsa and rescue their kingdom from an endless winter. Besides its long-overdue bow to feminist hopes, Frozen strikes a nice balance between expectation and surprise; we’re on safe (if frigid) terrain, but the plot keeps you guessing. (DJP) Fairview (2-D)/Fiesta 5 (2-D)
Grudge Match (113 mins.; PG-13: sportsaction violence, sexual content, language)
Two aging boxing rivals (Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone) are coaxed out of retirement to ﬁght one ﬁnal match. Fiesta 5
✯ Her (126 mins.; R: language, sexual content, brief graphic nudity) Joaquin Phoenix stars as a lonely writer who develops an unusual relationship with an operating system designed to meet his every need.

Games II is smoother and deeper-feeling. (DJP) Fiesta 5
✯ Inside Lleywn Davis (105 mins.; R: language, including some sexual references)
A young singer makes his way through the Greenwich Village folk scene over the course of a week in 1961. Joel and Ethan Coen write and direct. Tucked into the folds of this deceptively low-key tale are understated, enriching storytelling turns on the Coens’ part. (JW) Plaza de Oro
✯ Nebraska (115 mins.; R: some language)
An elderly, hard-drinking dad travels from Montana to Nebraska to reconnect with his estranged son and claim a million-dollar sweepstakes prize. Director and Nebraska boy Alexander Payne (Sideways, About Schmidt) comes home and delivers another peculiar but ultimately touching doozy of a ﬁlm. Fiesta 5
A journalist picks up a story about an older woman searching for her son, who was taken from her decades ago after she was forced into a convent. Steve Coogan abandons his smart hipster shtick to play reporter Martin Sixsmith, and the results are surprisingly moving. Plaza de Oro
Saving Mr. Banks (125 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements including some unsettling images)
Author P.L. Travers reﬂects on her life while Walt Disney begins production on the ﬁlm adaptation of her novel Mary Poppins. Spoonfuls of sugar, salt, and historically charged artistic in-ﬁghting make Saving Mr. Banks an intriguing, if overly slick, operation. (JW) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
A daydreamer and everyman is sent on a real-world adventure of epic proportions after discovering his job is in jeopardy. Ben Stiller directs and stars. Walking with Dinosaurs (87 mins.; PG: creature action and peril, mild rude humor)

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JANUARY ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): You can blame it on the coming full moon. You can blame it on the gorgeous storm or the epic dream or the haunting song or the suﬀering you’re struggling to vanquish. All I ask is that you don’t blame it on the alcohol. Okay? If you’re going to do wild and brave and unexpected things, make sure they are rooted in your vigorous response to primal rhythms, not in a drunken surrender to weakness or ignorance. I’m all for you losing your oppressive self-control, but not the healthy kind of self-control.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): When is the last time you did an experiment? I’m not talking about scientiﬁc tests and trials that take place in a laboratory. I’m referring to reallife experiments, like when you try out an unfamiliar experience to see if it appeals to you … or when you instigate a change in your routine to attract unpredictable blessings into your sphere. Now would be an excellent time to expose yourself to a few what-ifs like that. You’re overdue to have your eyes opened, your limits stretched, and your mind blown.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): To help take the edge oﬀ the darkness you have been wrestling with, I oﬀer you these lines from a poem by Kay Ryan: “The day misspent, / the love misplaced, / has inside it / the seed of redemption. / Nothing is exempt / from resurrection.” In other words, Gemini, whatever has disappeared from your life will probably return later in a new form. The wrong turns you made may lead you to a fresh possibility. Is that what you want? Or would you prefer that the lost things stay lost, the dead things stay dead? Make a decision soon.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22): “Human beings are often unable to receive because we do not know what to ask for,” says the writer Malidoma Somé in his book Of Water and Spirit. “We are sometimes unable to get what we need because we do not know what we want.” With that in mind, Can-
cerian, hear my two pleas: ﬁrst, that in the next six weeks, you will work diligently to identify the goodies you want most; and second, that you will cultivate your capacity to receive the goodies you want most by reﬁning your skill at asking for them.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Julia Morgan (1872-1957) was the ﬁrst woman licensed as an architect in California. She designed over 700 buildings in the course of her brilliant career, and thrived both ﬁnancially and artistically. One key to her success was her humility. “Don’t ever turn down a job because it’s beneath you,” she advised. That’s a helpful message for you to hear, Leo. It applies to the work-related opportunities you may be invited to take on, as well as the tasks that your friends, associates, and loved ones ask you to consider. You can’t possibly know ahead of time how important it might ultimately be to apply yourself conscientiously to a seemingly small assignment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): One of Beethoven’s music teachers said, “As a composer, he is hopeless.” When Thomas Edison was a kid, a teacher told him he was “too stupid to learn anything.” Walt Disney worked at a newspaper when he was young, but his editor ﬁred him because “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” I’m sure there was a person like that in your past — someone who disparaged and discouraged you. But I’m happy to report that 2014 will be the best year ever for neutralizing and overcoming that naysayer’s curse. If you have not yet launched your holy crusade, begin now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): As a child, French philosopher and writer Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) loved math. But his father, who homeschooled him, forced him to forego math and concentrate on studying the humanities. Blaise rebelled. When he was 12 years old, he locked himself in his room for days and immersed himself in mathematical investigations. When he emerged, he had ﬁgured
out on his own some of Euclid’s fundamental theorems about geometry. Eventually, he became a noted mathematician. I see the coming weeks as prime time to do something like the young Pascal did: Seal yourself away from other people’s opinions about who you’re supposed to be, and explore the themes that will be crucial for the person you are becoming.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): In 1609, Dutch sea explorer Henry Hudson sailed to America and came upon what we now call Coney Island. Back then it was a barren spit of sand whose main inhabitants were rabbits. But it was eventually turned into a dazzling resort — an “extravagant playground,” according to the documentary ﬁlm Coney Island. By the early 20th century, there were three sprawling amusement parks packed into its two square miles of land, plus “a forest of glittering electric towers, historical displays, freak shows, a simulated trip to the moon, the largest herd of elephants in the world, and panoramas showing the Creation, the End of the World, and Hell.” I mention this, Scorpio, because 2014 could feature your very own Henry Hudson moment: a time when you will discover virgin territory that will ultimately become an extravagant playground.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): “If men had wings and bore black feathers, few of them would be clever enough to be crows,” said 19th-century social reformer Henry Ward Beecher. That might be an accurate assessment for most people, but I don’t think it will be true for you Sagittarians in the foreseeable future. Your animal intelligence will be working even better than usual. Your instinctual inclinations are likely to serve as reliable guides to wise action. Trust what your body tells you! You will deﬁnitely be clever enough to be a crow.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Can you guess what combination of colors makes the most vivid visual impact? Psychologists say it’s black on yellow. Together they arrest the eye.

They command attention. They activate a readiness to respond. According to my reading of the astrological omens, this is the eﬀect you can and should have in the coming weeks. It’s time for you to draw the best kind of attention to yourself. You have a right and a duty to galvanize people with the power of your presence. Whether you actually wear yellow clothes with black highlights is optional as long as you cultivate a similar potency.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): I’m guessing that in a metaphorical sense, you’ve been swallowed by a whale. Now you’re biding your time in the beast’s belly. Here’s my prediction: You will be like the Biblical Jonah, who underwent a more literal version of your experience. The whale eventually expelled him, allowing him to return to his life safe and sound — and your story will have the same outcome. What should you do in the meantime? Here’s the advice that Dan Albergotti gives in his poem “Things to Do in the Belly of the Whale.” “Count the ribs,” he says. “Look up for blue sky through the spout. Make small ﬁres with the broken hulls of ﬁshing boats. Practice smoke signals. Call old friends. Organize your calendar. Dream of the beach. Review each of your life’s ten million choices. Find the evidence of those before you. Listen for the sound of your heart. Be thankful that you are here, swallowed with all hope, where you can rest and wait.”
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): How do you like your tests? Short, intense, and dramatic? Or leisurely, drawn-out, and lowpressure? Here’s another question: Do you prefer to pick out the tests you take, making sure they’re good ﬁts for the precise lessons you want to master? Or do you ﬁnd it more exciting and adventurous to let fate determine what unpredictable tests get sent your way? Ruminate about these matters, Pisces. You’re due for a nice big test sometime soon, and it’s in your interest to help shape and deﬁne how everything unfolds. Homework: Imagine that one of your heroes comes to you and says, “Teach me the most important things you know.” What do you say? FreeWillAstrology.com.

Narrow Gate Vineyards “Dunamis” 2008 The volcanic soils found on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada are showing great promise for distinctive wines, and this lively grenache (57%)‑syrah (31%)‑mourvèdre (12%) blend from a 13‑acre biodynamic vineyard and family‑run winery outside of Placerville is corroborating evidence. Balancing each of the GSM components with grace, the Dunamis opens on the nose with dark red fruit and peppery spice (the syrah), then gives way to tart cherry and tobacco on the tongue (the mourvèdre), all the while making your mouth water with bright acidity (the grenache). The name, which is Greek for “power,” is a nod to the explosive origins of the mineral‑rich rhyolite soils as well as a bow to the Holy Spirit of the Christian tradition, for the owners wear their religion on the label, including the biblically referencing name Narrow Gate.
