Since the early days of The Santa Barbara Independent, Kevin McKiernan’s words and photographs have given our town firsthand reports and compassionate insights on trouble spots around the globe. His reporting from places like Cuba, Northern Ireland, Turkey, El Salvador, China, and, most recently, Syria have helped to keep us from falling into complacency. The Pulitzernominated photographer and filmmaker told us this week’s story arose from his first visit to Myanmar, but he’d “seen the movie before” — the one where the U.S. offers arms, training, or intel to a militarydominated government in trade for promises to respect human rights. “How many times have we seen that Faustian bargain?” he asked.

Fukushima Stirs Diablo Fears State Demands More Seismic Studies
BY N I C K W E L S H erhaps a little prematurely, Santa Barbara commemorated the third anniversary of Japan’s now infamous and still-unfolding disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants, when a massive wave generated by this weekend’s storms slapped Moby Dick Restaurant, smashing the pier’s outer railings and shattering the establishment’s windows. It was hardly the one-two punch of a 9.0 earthquake followed by massive tsunami that laid waste to Japan’s once proud nuclear industry, but it was suﬃcient for those inclined to ask challenging questions about the safety of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant to ask them a little louder. On Monday night, a crowd of about 150 well-heeled anti-nuclear activists thronged the University Club to hear Dr. Jerry Brown of the World Business Academy deliver the alarming bullet points of a new public-health report suggesting that radiation escaping from Diablo Canyon is to blame for elevated cancer risks in San Luis Obispo County — where its two nuclear reactors are located — as well as Santa Barbara’s North County. With one breath, the report — authored by anti-nuclear activist and public-health expert Joseph Mangano of Ocean City, New Jersey — blamed Diablo Canyon for a dramatic spike in melanoma rates in San Luis Obispo as well as less dramatic increases in breast cancer, thyroid cancer, infant mortality, and child and adolescent cancer deaths. Mangano suggested that the operation of the nuclear power plant contributed to an additional 738 San Luis Obispo residents being diagnosed with cancer. But in the next breath, Mangano conditioned his conclusions, stating that the public health data “suggest a probable link” between elevated cancer rates with the federally permitted radiation emissions coming oﬀ the Diablo Canyon reactors. Not surprisingly, no one from Paciﬁc Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), which operates Diablo Canyon, was on hand for a rebuttal. 10
march 6, 2014
Company spokesperson Blair Jones took pains not to mask his evident disdain. “Given Mr. Mangano’s history of discredited reports due to poor science,” he wrote,“PG&E is not giving this report any consideration.” The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) — an industry-sponsored think tank and media center — has been verbally crossing swords with Mangano since 2005 and dismisses him as a fearmonger and his claims as “junk science.” The NEI claimed that Mangano’s ﬁndings have been rebutted by the health departments of eight states and two counties in which similar reports have been issued. Even among longtime anti–Diablo Canyon activists, there are doubts about the soundness of Mangano’s research. “He’s a very nice man and very dedicated,” said one high-proﬁle activist who declined to be identiﬁed. “That’s all I’m willing to say.” Health oﬃcials with San Luis Obispo County are reportedly investigating many of Mangano’s claims, but said it was too soon to render any verdict. Organizers at the event were not daunted by such criticisms, suggesting they were both predictable and unconstructive. Brown — whose organization sponsored the study — said he learned the painful way that those in positions of authority were not to be trusted. He’d been told by a dentist as a young boy that a certain procedure would be painless, only to experience excruciating agonies. He said he’s spent 41 years ﬁghting against Diablo Canyon and that he’s not about to give up now. Dr. Stephen Hosea asked the crowd for a moment of silence to be “lovingly present” for those exposed to Fukushima’s nuclear radiation. And a Buddhist monk chanted for nearly 10 minutes and vowed to walk from Santa Barbara to the gates of Diablo Canyon. Far less theatrical in nature — but no doubt much more troubling to PG&E — was a sharply worded letter sent by California Public Utility Commission (PUC) President Michael Peevey to PG&E President Christopher Johns on February 25, bluntly demanding new scientiﬁc
information and studies regarding the seismic safety of Diablo Canyon, now California’s only operating nuclear power facility. Without this information, Peevey warned Johns, the PUC would not approve the rate increase necessary for PG&E to recoup the $80 million estimated it will cost to get its operating license at Diablo Canyon extended another 20 years. That license does not expire until 2024 and 2025. Animating Peevey’s letter were discoveries in recent years of a new fault line just oﬀ the coast from Diablo Canyon and what that might mean. Scientists with the United States Geological Survey have questioned whether the plant is built to safely withstand the maximum ground acceleration that might be delivered should two oﬀshore fault lines be connected. And two years ago, the resident inspector assigned to Diablo Canyon by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) raised similar doubts whether the nuclear facility was capable of safely shutting down in the event of a major seismic event. The inspector’s supervisor concluded that the plant was built to withstand far more seismic shock than any of the nearby fault lines are capable of delivering. Likewise, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission gave the plant a clean bill of seismic health a year ago. The NRC’s opinion was rendered just as PG&E was seeking a Coastal Commission permit to do high-energy sonar tests to better deﬁne the seismic issues surrounding the plant. Ultimately, the Coastal Commission denied the permit, arguing the risk to surrounding sea mammals was too great. Critics of PG&E and the NRC argued that it was premature to declare that the plant could be deemed seismically up to snuﬀ without this information. Although the PUC has no authority over the plant’s relicensing, it does have authority over what rates utility companies can charge customers and what costs can be recouped. Peevey put PG&E on notice that he would use that leverage to exact ■ this information.

Shortly after a citizen called the Harbor Patrol at 7:30 a.m. on 3/4 to report the Double Dolphin — a popular tourist catamaran that moors at Sea Landing — adrift in the marina, officials found 21-year-old Phillip Everett Conway (pictured) asleep on board. Police say Conway loosed the 50-foot boat’s mooring lines sometime during the night, broke into a padlocked cabinet that houses its navigation and guidance systems, and smashed around $3,000 worth of equipment. Conway, who is homeless and had recently been apprehended for another boat theft, was arrested on theft and vandalism charges and is being held in County Jail on $500,000 bail. Judge Clifford Anderson sentenced 25-year-old Kate Hatrey Walters on 3/3 to four years of probation for a DUI collision last May that left her 3-year-old son with a broken neck. He’s since made a full recovery and now lives with his father. Walters, who was also ordered to a residential treatment facility and has been in jail since the incident, faced a maximum sentence of 10 years and 8 months in prison. Prosecutors had declined to offer Walters any kind of plea deal and argued against probation. Read more at independent.com/news.
CITY Stormy weather and a contract dispute between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the company that dredges the Santa Barbara Harbor have conspired to build up a mountain of silt at the harbor’s mouth, preventing big boats from entering or leaving the marina and putting smaller vessels on high alert. The scheduled dredging, which was supposed to take place last fall, will instead happen later this week, harbor officials said. More than $160,000 was doled out by the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation to a wide variety of performing arts organizations in 2013, with the funds coming both from private donors and from $1 per ticket sold. The Bowl’s Education Outreach Committee selected the recipients, including Cameron Tummel Rhythm Instruction, Boxtales Theatre Company, Santa Barbara Dance Institute, Girls Rock, Music!, Notes for Notes, Dos Pueblos High School Band Boosters, San Marcos High School Band Boosters, Everybody Dance Now!, the Santa Barbara Children’s Chorus, and Michael Katz Storytelling.

By a vote of 9-0, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against longtime Vandenberg Air Force Base peace protestor Dennis Apel (pictured), upholding the right of base brass to limit where, when, and if he could engage in free-speech activities on base property even if located outside Vandenberg’s enclosed area. The Department of Defense petitioned the Supreme Court to examine the issue after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled base commanders lacked the requisite legal authority to ban Apel from demonstrating on a public road just outside the Vandenberg base entrance on the technical grounds that the Air Force shared an easement with the County of Santa Barbara for the stretch of road in question and did not control the property outright. In a decision written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court rejected the Ninth Circuit Court’s reasoning. “I was really disappointed,” Apel said. “I didn’t expect to win but I didn’t expect it to be 9 to 0 either.” Apel, who has been arrested 15 times for protesting in front of the base, said he doesn’t intend to stop now. Apel was barred from protesting even in the site designated by Vandenberg for such activities after he was found guilty of vandalism for spraying a syringe of his own blood on the Vandenberg entrance sign at the onset of the Iraq war. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Sonia Sotomayor wrote a joint opinion concurring with Roberts, but the two suggested the real constitutional question posed by Apel was one of free speech. They stated that the government’s ability to limit free speech on military property that’s open to the public might be open to constitutional review. Apel said he now intends to file a First Amendment claim with the Ninth Circuit Court, challenging his trespassing conviction. “We always argued this was a free-speech issue,” he said. “Now we will.” Although the Ninth Circuit declined to comment on the free-speech aspects of his previous legal motions, Apel expressed confidence it would do so now. — Nick Welsh
that maintenance crews had both repaired and replaced the affected water lines. “It should be open by this weekend,” said Shivers on 3/4. But he also reminded that the rest stops are set for another series of shutdowns this spring due to a “major construction job” that includes extensive plumbing remodels of two restrooms and the development of a new crew building as well as miscellaneous electrical, carpentry, tile, irrigation, and landscaping work. The supervisors voted 3-2 to approve the Van Wingerden Greenhouses project next to 3883 Foothill Road in Carpinteria. The Van Wingerdens requested to keep all 386,600 square feet of their flower greenhouses, but asked the board to amend zoning rules and remove the property’s view corridor designation, which would have limited the square footage to 148,703. Because part of the greenhouses was previously constructed without permits, the family will have to pay a fine. Concerns were raised about the greenhouses’ contribution to light pollution, but blackout screens will be required. The supervisors voted to award $681,857 in Coastal Resource Enhancement Fund (CREF) grants across 12 projects: Andrée Clark Bird Refuge/Zoo Wetlands, Maritime Museum’s Wall Upgrade, Sea Center’s Coastal Immersion Zone, Santa Cruz Island Habitat Restoration, Goleta Slough Hydrologic Modeling Study, Explore Tide Pools with Care Interpretative Signs, Ellwood Mesa Coastal Trail and Habitat Restoration, Rancho Guacamole Fish Passage Restoration, Jalama Beach Restroom Replacements, Cabrillo High School Aquarium, Dunes Center’s Heritage Exhibit, and Pelagic Bird Care Equipment Purchase. cont’d page 12

Storm Hits, Drought Persists
Wet Weather Wreaks Considerable Havoc
BY N I C K W E L S H , WITH I N D E P E N D E N T S TA F F
hough this weekend’s rains delivered a solid eight to nine inches in the Santa Ynez Mountains, South Coast water managers remain extremely concerned about persistent drought conditions. “To grasp the magnitude of the hole we’re in,” said Santa Barbara City water czar Josh Haggmark,“the recent storms dumped just over eight inches at Gibraltar and brought us up to the third driest year on record with 10.4 inches.” Two additional storms of similar magnitude, he said, would be required to achieve just average rainfall. “Looking ahead at the forecast,” he went on, “there is no major rain in the future, which has me very concerned this may be it for the year.” The good news, said Haggmark, is that the rains deposited about 1,400 acre-feet — roughly one-twelfth of the city’s annual demand — into Gibraltar Reservoir. Lake Cachuma saw a rise of 700 acre-feet. But perhaps the biggest impact of the recent storms has yet to be felt. By providing the South Coast with a solid drenching, backyard landscapers will no longer feel the urgency to water their plants. “Their outdoor irrigation system should be shut oﬀ for the next couple weeks,” Haggmark said. For Montecito, the picture is grimmer. There, Water District manager Tom Mosby had been hoping the rains would drop 600 acre-feet into Montecito’s reservoir, Jameson Lake. Instead, Mosby said, it got just 144 acre-feet. Last week, the Montecito district enacted a water rationing. Many eyes were trained on the Goleta Slough, which had not been opened to the Paciﬁc Ocean for about a year and came perilously close to ﬂooding the Santa Barbara Airport on Friday. The previous program of opening the slough’s mouth to stop stagnation hit bureaucratic snags in March 2013 when federal oﬃcials would no longer sign oﬀ on the practice without further assessment of steelhead trout populations. But county oﬃcials applied for and received an
emergency permit to open the slough this week, and at around 11:45 a.m. on Friday, a backhoe busted through the sand and the waters started ﬂowing out to the ocean. The next day at nearby Goleta Beach, a strong storm surge combined with a 5.6-foot high tide inﬂicted signiﬁcant damage to the area. Along with flooding, several large sailboats were beached at the park. Most of the windows at the Beachside Bar Café that surround the outside eating area were broken by waves, and one of its employees was knocked down and carried out to sea by a rogue wave. He suﬀered a dislocated shoulder in the incident but was back at work two days later. Over at Moby Dick Restaurant on Stearns Wharf, an especially tall wave broke through the popular eatery’s windows during breakfast time, sending wet patrons screaming and scrambling. No one was seriously hurt. The Gaviota Pier was suﬃciently battered by 10- to 15-foot waves that a large portion of it was destroyed in the storm. State Park Ranger Dustin Patterson estimated that about one-quarter of the historic structure had been demolished. It now ends at the location of the boat hoist, often used to launch ﬁshing and Hollister Ranch surf boats. In other water-related news, Haggmark reported that a snafu in the bidding process has held up plans to get started on revamping the city’s reclaimed-water system, which at 25 years old has been barely limping along. Because that system does not produce treated sewage water that conforms to federal waterquality standards, Haggmark and others have been forced to combine about 500 acre-feet of potable drinking water into the mix to create 800 acre-feet of reclaimed water annually. That water is then spread on playing ﬁelds and parks. Haggmark said if the city did not redo the bidding process, it might be vulnerable to a legal challenge. By starting over, he said, the process will be delayed by two months. Even so, he insisted, the revamped system should still be ■ up and operating by next year. march 6, 2014

COME SEE WHAT’S NEW!
Santa Barbara County–owned facilities are being ushered into a more energyefficient future, as the Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 this week to adopt a plan that would see its buildings produce as much energy as they consume, in line with upcoming state and federal standards. Under the Zero Net Energy Resolution, all new county-owned buildings designed after 2025 would strive to be energy neutral. For existing buildings, half of their square footage would aim to meet that requirement by 2025 and fully so by 2035. According to county staff, buildings eat up a significant amount of energy, thanks to computers, air conditioning, heating, light, hot water, and ventilation. Santa Barbara County spent $4 million on its facilities in fiscal year 2012-13, said Greg Chanis with the General Services Department, and getting buildings to a point where their energy output equals their energy input could mean turning to solar panels and wind turbines. How these projects would be paid for remains the biggest question. Although no concrete projects were discussed at the meeting, to install solar panels at 15 locations would cost just shy of $1 million, with the panels — which last at least 25 years — paying for themselves in energy savings within about 10 years. Chanis acknowledged the “competing needs” for funding but said energy efficiency is “a compelling argument.” Whether the planned North County Jail could be more energy efficient was a question asked by several supervisors. Although staff said that the jail’s funding likely has little wiggle room and that solar panels aren’t currently included in the design, planners are working to ensure that the jail meets LEED-certification requirements. Some supervisors also asked that the resolution’s target dates be reexamined in the future and possibly pushed up. Staff also pointed to other environmentally friendly measures recently taken by the county, including the installation of two 5,000-piece solar panel centers and purchasing four electric Nissan — Lyz Hoffman LEAFs for its motor pool fleet.
news briefs cont’d GOLETA The State Controller’s Office has joined the Department of Finance to demand that the City of Goleta turn over more than $18 million in former Redevelopment Agency (RDA) funds. In a 2/13 letter to the city, the Controller’s Office said it reviewed asset transfers made by the RDA to the city between January 2011 and January 2012 and found that $18 million worth wasn’t allowed. The city is using the money to pay for the San Jose Creek project. An injunction prevents the state from taking the money until a judge makes a ruling later this year.

The battle over what’s best for Goleta Beach — some want to keep the rock revetments in place, others want to remove them — got a head start Tuesday, courtesy of Supervisor Peter Adam’s (pictured) long-stewing issues with one of the project’s EIR consultants and the attention drawn to the park after last weekend’s heavy storm. The board will hear the issue on 3/18. The beach reopened on Wednesday; the Coastal Commission on Tuesday authorized that walking paths be cut down to the beach from the park. As of deadline, the pier remains closed. The beach remains closed because of the storm, but county staff received authorization from the Coastal Commission to cut walking paths down to the beach from the park. The damaged pier also remains closed.
The Goleta City Council this week explored the creation of a community garden, after Councilmember Jim Farr requested that the idea be examined at a meeting in February. Whether there will be several gardens or just one — Armitos Park in Old Town was suggested — will be one of the focuses of a Parks and Recreation Commission study; other variables include whether the garden would offer communal space or individual plots and what types of plants would be grown.
ENVIRONMENT Last weekend’s storm caused significant damage to the ladder on Santa Barbara Island’s landing pier, so the southernmost slice of the Channel Islands National Park will be closed to the public until a new ladder can be constructed and installed, which is expected to take at least one month. There was also damage on Santa Cruz Island, where some flooding in Scorpion Valley is causing about a week of repairs to restrooms there. Meanwhile, the park released an economic report that showed the 250,000 Channel Islands visitors spent nearly $14 million in nearby communities, supporting 178 jobs in the region. Nationwide, the report showed that $14.7 billion was directly spent by 283 million National Park-goers in communities within 60 miles of a park, thereby supporting 243,000 jobs. A judge has dismissed the lawsuit filed to keep the “no otter zone” intact in Southern California waters, deciding that any challenge to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife’s authority to eliminate the zone — which the federal agency did in 2012 — should have been filed within six years of the associated policy’s creation in 1987. The lawsuit ultimately sought more protections for fishermen who will be impacted by the southward spread of the sea otter, which is likely to decimate shellfish populations and their commercial fisheries in the decades to come. ■

Gang Rape at UCSB
he ripple eﬀects of the violent gang rape of a 19-year-old female student on UCSB’s campus have been felt for over a week. Following the brutal February 23 attack, UCSB police strengthened security, national media spread the story, and university CARE (Campus Advocacy Resources & Education) oﬃces saw an increase in both walk-ins and calls. UCSB police say they are looking for “upwards of at least three suspects” and have released sketches of two of them, both Asian males in their early twenties and strangers to the victim. One was described as tall and thin, the other short with a medium build. According to Sheriﬀ ’s oﬃcials, the woman was last seen walking alone between midnight and 12:30 a.m. near Embarcadero del Mar and Segovia Road. She attempted to ﬁght oﬀ her attackers at the scene — authorities are not disclosing the exact campus location — and returned to her Isla Vista residence before notifying police. In response to the high-proﬁle case, the UCSB Police Department announced it will be recruiting ﬁve new oﬃcers to augment its 29-person force. And the university, according to Chancellor Henry Yang, will also add lights and cameras to the west end of campus and increase its number of student Community Service Oﬃcers (CSOs). Last weekend, a Santa Barbara City College student was sexually assaulted on the block of Del Playa Drive at 1 a.m. on February 22. The suspect — described as a thin, 56 male with brown eyes and dark hair — allegedly took the victim behind a vehicle and assaulted her after he met her outside of a party. No one has been arrested, and the investigation is ongoing. On January 18, an 18-year-old UCSB student was allegedly raped by three black males around 1:20 a.m. at the block of Sabado Tarde. The suspects — an unidentiﬁed 15-yearold, 22-year-old Casey Avila, and 18-year-old Charles Dunbar — were arrested and charged with forcible rape and aiding and abetting each other in the act. Avila and Dunbar are behind bars on $250,000 bail and are scheduled to appear in court on March 20. If convicted, they face up to nine years in prison. UCSB oﬃcials said there were four reported rapes on campus in 2010, one in 2011, and four in 2012. In Isla Vista, there were 15 rapes and seven sexual battery reports in 2012, and 17 rapes and six sexual battery reports in 2013, according to records from the Sheriﬀ ’s Oﬃce.
Data indicates only 15 percent of sexual assaults in the area occur between two people who know each other, according to Elsa Granados from the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center. Seventeen to 20 percent of the nearly 700 victims the center sees each year are UCSB or SBCC students. Of the 59 sexual assault cases reported to law enforcement last year, 41 percent involved alcohol. While these cases and others are investigated and prosecuted, the Central Coast carries the distinction of leading the way in quick turnaround for evidence evaluation. About a year ago, a program called Rapid DNA Service (RADS) was implemented, which allows three additional swabs to be collected from highyield areas on a victim and sent via FedEx to the crime lab. RADS boasts machines that can run up to 24 samples at once, a much faster process than opening a highly detailed rape kit. Located in Goleta, the state crime lab covers Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties and became the second one in California to implement RADS. District Attorney Joyce Dudley called the program “a watershed moment” in her 20 years in law enforcement. Recently, 1,900 untested rape kits were found in Alameda County, prompting its District Attorney to work with state legislators to propose a bill that would call for rape kits to be submitted to crime labs within ﬁve days. It will be heard in the Legislative Assembly Public Safety committee next week. Though a backlog of unidentiﬁed suspects is not an issue in Santa Barbara, the fact that there are untested rape kits in other jurisdictions means DNA samples are not being uploaded into the Combined DNA Index System (known as CODIS), the national database used to match proﬁles with evidence already collected and uploaded. So far in 2014, Santa Barbara nurses have given 26 exams — eight were university students — and there have been ﬁve CODIS hits from samples collected last year. While added enforcement helps, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson said UCSB’s police increase is merely a Band-Aid, arguing that the university needs at least another 30 oﬃcers and that it should take better responsibility for violent sexual behavior that occurs in Isla Vista. UCSB sophomore and Take Back the Night cochair Tara Atrian concurred, explaining campus resources should be better publicized. Further, she noted Isla Vista’s party reputation is problematic because it often wrongly excuses violent sexual behavior. ■

Monarch Mystery PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTO

he low number of monarch butterﬂies to land in Goleta’s Ellwood groves this year isn’t really the story, said biologist Dan Meade. “The story is that it was an unusual weather year.” According to Meade and other oﬃcials who study the insect, the drought could be a key contributor to the small ﬁgures. With the butterﬂy season now behind us, data provided by Meade, who is working with the City of Goleta on its plan to keep the butterﬂy habitat healthy, show that the highest number to ﬂock to Ellwood this season was just over 10,000, and only 3,800 in the popular main BYE-BYE, BUTTERFLY: Is this year’s dry weather grove.

Road Maintenance DOA?
BY LY Z H O F F M A N upervisor Peter Adam’s ballot initiative to prioritize funding for the upkeep of county-owned roads, buildings, and parks took a wallop this week from County Auditor-Controller Bob Geis, whose ﬁscal impact statement on the measure said it could spell doom for county ﬁnances — and possibly be infeasible. The extra $18 million-$21 million annually that Public Works has said would be needed to preserve the condition of the aforementioned facilities would — without new revenue —“result in a major reallocation of county resources away from services they currently support,” including public safety and health and human services. Further, Geis wrote, funding for such programs is prescribed by law, meaning that “it may not be possible for the Board of Supervisors to fund the requirements of the ordinance.” To be put before voters on June 3, Adam’s maintenance ordinance — which happened to draw the title of Measure M from the elections oﬃce, which Adam called “divinely fortuitous nomenclature”— would require the supervisors to hold the facilities to their existing levels or better, so as not to add the costs to the county’s $300 million-and-growing deferred maintenance backlog. Debt couldn’t be used to foot the bill, unless voters give their okay.
Geis’s statement, submitted to the elections oﬃce on February 28, said how the supervisors deal with the ordinance, if passed, would depend on how they decide to measure the standards, how they can balance the required funding against other needs, and “the extent to which the ordinance is valid under state law.” (County counsel will submit an impartial legal analysis for the ballot on March 10.) Finding other sources of revenue would be the key to minimizing the ordinance’s eﬀects on money for other services. Voter-approved parcel taxes, general-obligation bonds, and infrastructure improvement bonds could work, Geis wrote. Increasing the county’s hotel bed tax — the supervisors recently re-ﬂoated the idea to increase its 10 percent tax to 12, to match other area cities’ rates — could also work, Geis said, but to restrict the tax to infrastructure would require a two-thirds approval by the public. “The board is still going to be in charge of where the money comes from,” Adam said. “What the initiative can do is tell them to do something. What the initiative can’t do is tell them how to do it.” With Supervisor Doreen Farr, Supervisor Salud Carbajal, who has called the measure the “anti-public safety net initiative,” will be authoring an argument against the measure for the ballot. ■ march 6, 2014

Conrad “Connie” Gigstead –
Conrad “Connie” Gigstead, of Santa Barbara, passed away unexpectedly on February , . Born in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, in . During WW he served in the Army Air Force, flying dangerous missions “over the hump” from India to China and back. After completing his military service he returned to Milwaukee, WI, and attended Marquette University where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. After earning his degree, Connie hired on with AC Sparkplug, later AC Delco, as part of the Missile and Space Flight Guidance Systems Program. He and his teams played a key role in the development of inertial guidance systems for many of the early NASA programs. He was exceptionally proud of his role as Flight Test Director at Cape Canaveral, FL, during the heyday of space flight. He retired from Delco, General Motors in after years of service with a final position of Field Service Director at the Santa Barbara facility. An avid golfer, Connie won the Wisconsin High School Golf Championship in and went on to play for his college team. Connie loved fishing, hunting and in later years traveling the western United States. His greatest passion was as a lifelong “Packer Backer”, cheering on his beloved Green Bay Packers through both thick and thin years. Conrad is survived by his wife, Lois; son Dan and his wife, Lauri; his grandsons Christopher and
wife Jaime; Andrew and his wife, Nikki; and his great grandchildren, Riley, Kaleigh, Lily and Finnley. He was proud to be a part of Lois’s family including her sons Dave Sokolowski and wife Patty, Steven Sokolowski and wife Dawn and grandchildren Savana and Steven. Conrad was predeceased by his first wife, Hazel, and their son Keith Gigstead. As he requested, there will be no service or memorial. Choosing rather that all his friends and family remember him through all the countless stories and tall tales for which he was famous. In keeping with his “a life well lived is its own reward” philosophy, he wished everyone to live well every day and start each meal with dessert in case you don’t make it to the end of the meal. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to: Santa Barbara Humane Society, Overpass Road, Santa Barbara, CA , Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara, PO Box , Santa Barbara, CA or a charity of your choice.

land and Hawaii. He attended San Marcos High School and the Santa Barbara City College Culinary Arts Program. He went on to work at several local restaurants, with his favorites being Casa De Sevilla and the El Encanto. He also worked for several years at the Bottoms Family Art Galleries. While his primary passion was working with anything to do with art and that world, and hailing from one of Santa Barbara’s most artistic families, he unfortunately had to have a fallback position in what he considered the real world. He “toiled” for many years from - in various companies in the medical device industry and created many friendships in this field. Many who worked with him quickly saw his genuine, pure friendliness and were quick to bond with him for a lifetime. Greg spent most of his vacations chasing the warm sunshine and visiting friends in Kauai. He also enjoyed traveling with friends and family to Europe and Central America. Throughout his life, Greg dedicated much of time to giving back to his community including delivering meals to those in need through Meals on Wheels. Greg surrounded himself with people and things of great beauty. He had a lifelong love of fine dining, whether it be out in restaurants or cooking at home for friends, and he maintained an obsession with after dinner cookies when eating at home. An avid gardener, Greg had a special talent for growing orchids, and he kept a varied selection of succulents as well. Greg’s love of sunshine, art, food and art (yes he really loved art that much) was surpassed only by the love he had for his friends and family. He had many lifelong friends and was militant in remembering milestone events about all of them. A birthday was never missed and one could set their watch by his timely, uniquely Greg, Christmas cards. He would be the first at the bedside of a friend in need, be it in illness or to be the first to hold a new baby. From a wild, rambunctious youth to a gentle, comforting, peace loving man, Greg’s loving spirit will be missed by anyone who was lucky enough to be considered his friend. Greg was preceded in death by both of his parents and his brother Jeff. He is survived by his sister Kathy Cook and her husband, John, his niece Danielle Drewisch, his uncle Bud Bottoms, and numerous cousins. Many thanks to all who cared for Greg in the last few months, especially his doctors, the staff and nurses at the Cancer Center and his very own private nurse, Diane Johnson, who made his final vision a reality.
A private celebration of life will be held by the family on March th. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Surfrider Foundation or the Pacific Pride Foundation.
Richard John Magenheimer, M.D., Capt. USN // – //
My dearest husband, “Dad,” “Daddy,”“Papa,” brother, friend, and colleague, Richard John Magenheimer passed away on February at Serenity House, surrounded by friends and family members. Richard was born on July , , to John and Daisy Magenheimer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He graduated from Marquette University Medical School in , prepared with his classical Jesuit education, to make a difference in the world. Richard served years in the active and reserve US Navy as a flight surgeon, retiring at the rank of Captain. He completed his residency at the Naval Medical Center in Oakland, and began his Ophthalmology practice of years at Sansum Medical Clinic in . Married the past years, Richard and Pam spent blessed times together enjoying family, road trips in the “red” car, biking, skiing,Yoga, and traveling. The highlights of each week were Breakfast with The Boys talking over the golden years in medicine, and The EARLY Morning Bible Study—a small group who met for years. His greatest joy was quietly making a difference in the lives of his family, friends and patients. Active in his community, Richard held leadership positions at Life Network Medical, Young Life, Rotary and was a member of Santa Barbara Community Church. A -year volunteer for Meals on Wheels, Richard drove the winding Eastside roads in his favorite Miata, the license plate of which read “DT :.” When asked the significance thereof, he delighted in quoting the verse, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart.” A generous man of dignity and honor, Richard searched for the Glory of God in his life. He often shared his testimony as expressed
in his favorite poem, “The Hound Of Heaven,” which was his quiet way of honoring the glory of the Lord and his pursuit of Christ. A heartfelt “Thank you” and deep appreciation go to all the doctors who helped in Richard’s battle against Parkinson’s disease. We give thanks to the Serenity House staff who provided excellent care that went far beyond duty as they tended to his soul as much as to his body. We extend deepest gratitude to Pam’s sister, Elizabeth Robbins, our Earth Angel who cared for us all and was always by our side. Richard is survived by his loving wife, Pam, and children Kim (Natika), Kimberly (Tony), and Mary Jo (Richard), Dan (Lynn), Jen and their mother, Joan; brothers Art (Ann), Tom; sisters-in-law Elizabeth and Jane, brother-in-law Thomas (Robin); and wondrous grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren who will miss his guidance and gentle direction. As Richard wished, his ashes will be scattered during the summer at Mammoth in the mountains he loved. We will keep him in our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Parkinson’s Association Santa Barbara (PASB), Serenity House, and Santa Barbara YoungLife.

Barry Spacks 1931 – 2014
in the Santa Barbara poetry room. As Chryss Yost has said, he was a creative force we couldn’t just talk around but had to acknowledge as central, not only to poetry but with excursions to the other arts. In doing so, we were like the blind men describing that other elephant in the old fable. One of us — it could be myself — touches and hears the trunk and exclaims: “A Poet!” Correct! This revelation has come to every Santa Barbaran who cares about poetry, even before Barry became our ﬁrst poet laureate. Slogging through the May 1966 issue of Poetry magazine, my spirits were suddenly lifted by two bright and sparkling pieces by someone at MIT, whose name I had just read on a letter of recommendation to UCSB: Barry Spacks. One of those spirited poems parodied what he had written seriously, and it was mischievous (this MIT Spacks was the Poet), being titled “Recommendations”:
This is a good fellow who knows what he may do? He is most excited, he is walking the walls of himself on tiptoe. Give him a prize.
BY J O H N R I D L A N D ’m tempted to think of Barry Spacks as the elephant
The Elephant in the Arts Room poetry and literature at MIT while his ﬁrst wife, Patricia Meyer Spacks, taught literature at Wellesley. The second half was measured out in the cooler ambiance of Santa Barbara, ﬁrst in the English Department at UCSB, and later in the College of Creative Studies, until December 2013, when he began to feel exhausted by his ﬁnal illness. In 1989, he won a UCSB Distinguished Teaching Award and was always very highly rated in student evaluations for his enthusiasm and knowledge, as Teddy Macker’s online Independent article attests. The elephant’s fourth leg is Tibetan Buddhism, which I believe Kimberley Snow had been practicing for some time before Barry. For six years, they were based in a Tibetan Buddhist community in Northern California. In what may be his most widely known poem of recent years, “Within Another Life,” he speculates on several transmigrations a soul might make after death — becoming a boulder, a pane of glass, a door — and expresses a ﬁnal hope for his own:
And if a knotted, twisted rope from long self-clenching and complexity, oh love, unbind, unbraid me then, until I flow again like windswept hair.

These critical after a great deal of correspondence, I booked him for the fourth Poetry, regretting its slow pace: issue of my magazine, The Little Square Review. In my “note” skills were always available to anyone whose poems he was asked there, I wrote: to assess, in numberless formal and informal poetry workshops So maybe, say in ten thousand years, and private sessions in person or online.

o here we (the United States) are, on the brink of getting ourselves involved in yet another war. Russia is stepping into Ukraine, so John Kerry is going to go over there and stick our nose into it. How do “progressives,” or Democrats, possibly think this administration is less pro-war than other administrations? (And lest we forget, one of Obama’s promises before getting elected was to step up the U.S.’s military role in Afghanistan.) And how do the supposedly patriotic or conservative Republicans consider themselves patriotic with their pro-war agenda when that great patriot George Washington said — at his farewell address —“Beware of foreign entanglements”? The U.S. boycotted the 1980 Olympics because the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, but the U.S. ended up invading this same country. Meanwhile, people wonder why it isn’t safe for U.S. citizens to travel to many places abroad. — Bill Clausen, Solvang
Service with a Smile
have a ton of respect for servers and 100 percent agree that they deserve to receive tips! Exceptional service brings exceptional rewards. Perhaps the people the writer of “Don’t Skip the Tip” [Letters, 2/20/14] waited on could tell that their request for separate checks was a “pain in the butt” or that you “loathed” it. You’re in the service industry. Service with a smile, remember? Your job is to give people a great restaurant experience, whether that is prompt service, a friendly attitude, menu recommendations, or even separate checks. As for being taxed on your sales, it is typical to withhold tax on 6-8 percent of sales on restaurants with 10 or more servers (I looked it up on Google). Since you say 15-20 percent is what you expect people to tip, should I assume you declare the additional 10-12 percent you receive on your tax return? I didn’t think so. Statistically, the IRS estimates that 85 percent of cash tips are not declared. Do you keep an honest daily tip record or report 100 percent of your tips to your employer as the IRS requires?
It is a shame when a server who gives great service is not rewarded with a great tip; it really is. But please realize that a tip is not “required.” I certainly hope you aren’t too bitter with the occasional 13 percent tip. If it is happening a lot, maybe you should look a little closer within.

ast month, some weeks after I vis-
ited Myanmar, state security forces and Buddhist vigilantes massacred at least 48 ethnic Rohingya Muslims, mostly women and children, according to human rights reports. Witnesses said the mass killings took place in the Rakhine state in western Myanmar — the country also known as Burma — in one of the many areas that are largely oﬀ-limits to journalists and humanitarian workers. Rakhine is the troubled place where in 2012 Buddhist mobs killed more than 200 Muslims and burned thousands of homes. Despite government controls, journalists managed to report that the mobs, assisted by police, had driven more than 100,000 Rohingya into militarized camps. They remain there today, forbidden to marry or to have more than two children without permission or to travel beyond the police and army checkpoints. Immediately after the massacre, the UN called on Myanmar to investigate. But as with prior atrocities, the government denied responsibility for the killings. According to the Associated Press, on February 27 Myanmar’s government expelled the humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders after the organization reported that it had treated two dozen Rohingya Muslims, victims of violence committed by Buddhist mobs. The government denied the attacks. I never thought the word Buddhist would be used as an adjective to modify the noun terror. All that changed last summer, when I saw the serene image of a Buddhist monk on the cover of the Asian edition of Time magazine. The story appeared a few months after President Barack Obama’s historic visit to Myanmar, which was intended to note the end of 50 years of brutal military rule and the beginning
MYANMAR A K A BURMA of a “transition to democracy.” In reality, growing sectarian violence in the country may yet derail that transition, as it may slow down the stampede of Western corporations hungry to share in this, the last frontier market in Asia. Next to the portrait of the monk in his ﬂowing, maroon-colored robes was the headline “THE FACE OF BUDDHIST TERROR.” Buddhists compose about 90 percent of the population in Myanmar; Muslims account for only about 4 percent. The country has some 135 ethnic groups and a long history of tribal and religious conﬂict. Founded as a democratic nation in 1948, Burma fell to a military coup in 1962, remaining a dictatorship until
under house arrest in her lakeside home and in the notorious Insein prison. The loosening of military control prompted the lifting of international sanctions, but it was followed by a rash of sectarian violence between Buddhists and Muslims. Last fall I ﬂew to Burma, the storied home of thousands of golden pagodas and ancient temples. The country was renamed Myanmar by the junta in 1989, but it is still called Burma by many Western nations. I’d reported from China and Vietnam, but somehow I hadn’t realized that this country was as big as Texas, the largest landmass in mainland Southeast Asia.
in the foreign policy column. And I watched with interest, following the visit, when the President lifted punishing economic sanctions, which had isolated Burma as a police state for decades. Now I wondered how these events would impact the beleaguered Rohingya, the people the UN calls one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. Would their sorry tale play a part, however small, in Obama’s legacy? Or would the Rohingya, these stateless people whose citizenship was revoked when the Burmese generals rewrote the national constitution in 1982, remain a sideshow in a larger picture: the Administration’s attempt to refocus attention from the Middle East toward the China-dominated Paciﬁc, a gambit some have dubbed Obama’s “Asian Pivot”?

I certainly didn’t understand what could be at stake for my own country politically — what forging this new alliance might mean for President Obama, whose legacy will be colored, fairly or unfairly, by failures in Afghanistan and Iraq. I guessed that Obama sorely needed a win
It was a humid 93 degrees the morning I landed in Yangon, the city many still call Rangoon (the military changed the name in 1989). Before my trip, Bill Davis, the lead investigator for Physicians for Human Rights, had told me about a Rohingya businessperson called Karim (not his real name), who had moved to Yangon before travel restrictions were imposed. Davis told me that dozens of Muslims had been massacred and 13,000 displaced by mob violence in Meiktila, a town in the center of the country. The mayhem had apparently been triggered by an argument between a Muslim merchant and a Buddhist customer over gold prices. Much of the town had been burnt by Buddhists, who reportedly set ﬁre to the corpses of their victims as police stood idly by. According to Davis, the crowds shouted “Kill the Kalars!” — a racial epithet commonly used against foreigners, despite the fact that many of the victims were from families who had lived in CONT’D >>> march 6, 2014
2-DAY ANTIQUES BUYING EVENT IN SANTA BARBARA
COVER STORY militias were proﬁting from drug production in Burma’s Golden Triangle, a principal supplier of heroin to the U.S. During my visit last fall, China completed an oil and gas pipeline from the Bay of Bengal across Burma’s Rakhine state and onward to the Chinese frontier, a distance of more than 1,000 miles. This followed Beijing’s construction of a new railroad from the Chinese border to ports on the Rakhine coast. This was now the fastest way for Chinese products to reach the Indian Ocean. Not to be outdone, a number of American companies had already announced investments in Myanmar, including Coca-Cola, General Electric, and Ford, which was opening its ﬁrst franchise dealership in Yangon. But the biggest bonanza could be the anticipated inﬂux of post-junta tourists looking for resorts, and many developers were eying properties on the Bay of Bengal. The value of real estate, Rohingya and otherwise, was going up.
The Chinese economy is booming! As a result, the market for Chinese antiques is red hot. Prices for many Chinese antiques have grown substantially. So now is the perfect time to get the best value out of your Chinese antiques!

the area for generations. Davis suggested that his contact might be able to take me to see the rubble of the central mosque and school. Karim was supposed to meet me at the airport, but the roads were choked with the usual autos, pickups, tuk-tuks, and trishaws. He advised me by phone to take the airport van. An hour later, I walked into the lobby of the Queen’s Park Hotel, a reminder of the British colonial period, which ended after Burma declared independence in 1947. We met in the hotel restaurant where Karim, a well-dressed man in his mid-thirties, selected a table out of earshot of other customers. The breakfast buﬀet was winding down, and the waiters were removing platters of Burmese delicacies: mango with dried eel and ﬁsh bought fresh on the docks only a few blocks from the hotel. Karim began by apologizing that he could not take me to Meiktila. It was just too dangerous. He was willing to help, but only with background information. “I have three little girls,” he said, his voice trailing oﬀ. I knew Myanmar was experiencing the longest-running civil war in the world, a dubious distinction at best. The Burmese army, one of the largest in the world, was now in its sixth decade of ﬁghting ethnic groups, none of them Muslim, on the China and Thai borders. I knew that Burma’s border territories were rich in oil, gas, and precious gems (90 percent of the world’s rubies and the best jade come from here) and that the Burmese military shared in the riches. There was also credible evidence that government-aligned
The Rohingyas are a small ethnic minority with their own culture and language, scattered throughout a half-dozen countries from Saudi Arabia to Malaysia. The largest concentration — some 1.2 million — are found in Burma, mostly in the Rakhine state, which lies directly south of Bangladesh on the Bay of Bengal. This is where tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims were conﬁned “for their own protection” after the attacks of 2012. Sittwe is virtually inaccessible by road, cut oﬀ by an inland mountain range, splitting western Myanmar from the rest of the country. Rakhine was an independent country until 1784, and, in its glory days, European travelers called the coastal kingdom the “Venice of the East.” Despite the fact that today Rohingyas outnumber Buddhists in some areas, ethnic Rakhines still think of themselves as a separate, monolithic people, something similar to the Basques in Spain. I ﬂew by prop plane to Sittwe, Karim’s birthplace and the Rakhine capital. It’s an island city of almost 200,000, surrounded by rivers that ﬂow into the bay. Sittwe is the spot where the British landed in 1825 during the ﬁrst Anglo-Burmese War, and, despite a sizeable Muslim population, it is considered the birthplace of “political Buddhism.” Here in a British security prison in 1939, the monk Sayadaw U Ottama, a famous leader of the Burmese independence movement and practitioner of Theravāda, the oldest surviving form of Buddhism, died on hunger strike. And here in 2007, Sittwe monks launched the “Saﬀron Revolution,” an uprising against the military government that quickly spread throughout the country but was brutally repressed.

Tens of thousands managed to ﬂee the country. When I tried to get into Aung Mingalar, I was turned back at a police checkpoint. The next day I hired a ﬁxer who got me into one of the camps not far from the ocean. There I met Noor Ali, a Rohingya man in his mid-thirties who was wearing a torn white T-shirt. Ali took me to a makeshift cemetery and showed me a large mound of fresh dirt. It was a mass grave. The day before, Ali told me through an interpreter that the police had come at night in a big truck.

WIRATHU Buddhism and nationalism have been intertwined in Burma for more than a century. It is a good guess that George Orwell, the writer who ﬁrst came to Burma as a British police oﬃcer in the 1920s, witnessed monks taking part in demonstrations against the occupation. And here, almost a century later, was Ashin Wirathu, the radical Burmese monk, notorious leader of the “” political movement, the anti-Muslim crusade widely condemned for spreadIn 2003, Ashin Wirathu, the radical ing hate speech.

Armarni Sein Hlaing is part of a group that tries to promote peace between Buddhists and Muslims. She says the military wants to use sectarian discord in Burma to retain power. Behind Armarni is a photo of Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s famous dissident and Nobel laureate. Suu Kyi, who is revered in Washington, D.C., for human rights advocacy, has remained silent about the ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Myanmar.
THE BUDDHIST PEACEMAKER The ﬁrst thing that grabs your attention in her tidy middle class house in Mandalay is the large photo of Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s famous dissident and Nobel laureate. The home belongs to Armarni Sein Hlaing, a peace activist who, as a student in the ’80s and ’90s, was brieﬂy detained in demonstrations against the military junta and once “spent a month hiding in the jungle” after her college friends were arrested. She told me that in order for Suu Kyi to run for the presidency in 2015 — a development that might convince many skeptics that Myanmar was on a real path to democracy — the military would have to agree to amend the constitution, which states that a candidate’s family must have been born in Burma. Suu Kyi’s husband and children were born in England. Such a change, Armarni guessed, was unlikely. Today, Armarni and her husband are members of the once-outlawed National League for Democracy, which was represented in the historic election of 2012 when Suu Kyi was elected a member of Parliament. Like Suu Kyi, Armarni and her husband, who is a maritime engineer, are Theravāda Buddhists. They are part of a group called Myitta, which tries to promote harmony between Buddhists and Muslims. Myitta means “empathy” in Burmese. Armarni said she welcomed the democratic reforms, especially the new press freedoms, but she said the violence against Muslims was orchestrated,“a deliberate attempt by the government to sway the outcome” of the coming elections. The Myitta movement was raising issues I hadn’t heard before, which seemed a hopeful sign.“It is the government that is trying to divert attention 26

to distract us from the real issues at hand,” she said. “There is no reason for the Buddhists and the Muslims to ﬁght — we were all born here and are like brothers and sisters,” she added. But “someone is pulling the strings — there is a puppet master.”
On my last day in Myanmar, ﬁve bombs exploded in Yangon. In one of the blasts, a 43-year-old American tourist in the Traders Hotel suﬀered multiple injuries. The government blamed Karen guerrillas, one of an alphabet soup of rebel groups in the resourcerich north, which have been ﬁghting the Burmese army for almost 60 years. A Yangon newspaper, perhaps testing the limits of the new press freedoms, blamed the Burmese secret police, claiming government eﬀorts to instill fear in the long run-up to the 2015 elections. Given the conspiracy theories swirling in the country, that guess was as good as any. This was the end of the Buddhist Lent, the religious holiday known as Thadingyut that falls each year when the rains begin to retreat. This year Thadingyut overlapped with Eid alAdha, the worldwide Islamic feast that honors the sacriﬁce attributed to the patriarch Abraham. I got a taste of both, ﬁrst by walking in the annual festival of lights that celebrates Thadingyut. Then Karim picked me up and brought me to the Muslim quarter, where lines of poor people had queued up to receive the traditional donations of lamb. After that we went to the family home of Kyaw Min, a well-known Rohingya politician who had been elected as a member of the Myanmar Parliament in 1990. In 2006 Kyaw was arrested by the secret police on charges his Rohingya advocacy was giving Myanmar a “bad name” abroad. Then the police rounded up the rest of the family, Kyaw’s wife

I used to live on a sailboat in the ’80s, and I bought this a couple years ago to go diving at the islands with my kids, but it didn’t last long,” said Remy Saragosa (pictured left).

For more than half a decade, folks have gathered in Santa Barbara for the International Women’s Festival to discuss femme-focused topics. The festival “celebrates the accomplishments and nurtures the dreams of women in an interactive, multi-cultural, and multitracked program and expo focusing on the critical areas of women’s lives Kelly LeBrock — personal, professional, philanthropic, and planet,” reads the group’s website. This year’s theme is tech (how women juggle the changing landscape of technology), talk (how women use the art of conversation in our personal and professional lives), and trade (how women find balance with the constant demands of professional or philanthropic responsibilities). Guest speakers include actress/activist Kelly LeBrock, TV personality Rona Barrett, and CEO of Global Futurist Dr. Mary O’Hara-Devereaux. The fest is Friday-Sunday, March 7-9, at Earl Warren Showgrounds, 3400 Calle Real. For tickets and information, call the showgrounds at 687-0766 or visit womensfestivals.org. — Michelle Drown
Santa Barbara is nearly synonymous with volleyball, having cultivated beachplaying legends such as Karch Kiraly and Todd Rogers, to name just two. This April, budding spikers can start their careers by signing up for Volleyball Starts Here, a youth league for ages 7-15. Sign-ups have begun for the league, which runs April 8 - May 31 at Girsh Park in Goleta. The eight-week session is sponsored by the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL), which has mentored more than 100,000 children on the sport, according to its website. “One of the things that separates the USYVL from many other youth sports programs is the level of encouragement and ‘fun’ factor that we bring to the kids,” said Randy Sapoznik, executive director of the USYVL. The cost is $150 per kid, but there are discounts for families signing up two children or more. The price includes a volleyball, uniform, and individual medals.

The long war that caused this destruction may be over, but in the town of Imperi, Sierra Leone, the past is a powerful presence that infects every moment of the present. This is the backdrop for Ishmael Beah’s novel, Radiance of Tomorrow. Ishmael Beah Though a work of ﬁction, the story is tethered tightly to the reality of what is happening today in African countries, where war, crippling corruption, and foreign competition for valuable natural resources or geopolitical advantage are facts of life. Beah manages to describe the consequences of neo-colonialism without once mentioning the term. Beah’s characters — Bockarie and Benjamin, Pa Moiwa and Mama Kadie, the man-child Colonel and the former child soldier Ernest — are not remarkable individually, but as an ensemble, their struggle to rebuild their lives after years of war and dislocation, after surviving the temporary permanence of refugee camps, the turpitude of the paramount chief and the local authorities, and the immorality of a foreign mining company that is untouchable and unaccountable, is a moving testament to the will of people to use whatever agency they can muster to create a better future for their children — even against An Evening staggering odds. with Ismael Beah takes The strength of Beah’s writing place Monday, March 10, at lies in his compassion for people 8 p.m. at Campbell Hall. $15 and places.

he Santa Barbara Doll Club Show boasts quite a history. For the past ﬁve decades, the annual fair, sale, appraisal, and repair event has been posting up inside the Earl Warren Showgrounds to host collectors, enthusiasts, and casual doll lovers from all over the country. This Saturday, March 8, the event celebrates its 52nd year in conjunction with another important birthday: the 90th anniversary of Madame Alexander. Doll-savvy folk can recognize Alexander’s handiwork a mile away; her creations range in size from 8- to 16-inch ﬁgurines; all have sweetly cherubic features and are crafted with a painstaking eye for detail. Their clothes are works of art: tiny, multi-piece ensembles that replicate native garb from countries around the world, or storybook characters, or the ornate gowns of the ﬁrst wives of the United States. I recently met with S.B. collector Kay Chambers, whose love for Madame Alexander was evident from the moment I stepped foot in her home. With a modest 40-doll collection to her name, Chambers admitted that she didn’t start collecting until much later in life.“When [toy store owner] Mrs. Kernohan died in 2003, I bought four of them at her family’s garage sale,” Chambers recalled.“We spent hours talking to her daughter, and after that I just started looking.” Spurred by her experience at the Kernohans’ and her longstanding love of Alexander’s work, she began her hunt for more second-hand collectibles. As we talked, she pointed to each doll — an Eliza Doolittle, a Princess Josephine — explaining the story behind its arrival, as well as the condition it arrived in. “New, they retail for over $100, and I’m not rich, so when I realized we could buy them for $15 or $25 and repair them to make them look like new, I started buying them like crazy,” she explained. Chambers’s desire to “rescue” and restore the dolls is a large part of what makes her collection so special. Growing up in a middle-class home, she always admired her friends’ Madame Alexander dolls from afar. And now, as a grandmother of two, she’s happy to share her dolls — and their history — with a new generation.“I have two grandkids, 3 and 6, and they play with them and they enjoy them a lot. We take them out of the display cabinet one at a time and each one gets a ‘wow.’ ” Chambers’s collection of Madame Alexander dolls will appear as part of the 52nd annual S.B. Doll Club Show, Saturday, March 8, Warren Hall, Earl Warren Showgrounds. For more info, call 733-1261 or visit earl — Aly Comingore warren.com.

The End of the Season CIF Finals Elude Two High School Basketball Teams
by John Zant ne day short of
March, one game short of a trip to the CIF ﬁnals, the varsity boys’ basketball teams of Santa Barbara High and Laguna Blanca School arrived at the conclusions to their 2013-14 seasons. Their old and wise head coaches — 70-year-old Santa Barbara natives David Bregante and Sal Rodriguez — were grateful for these teams. In all their years of living and breathing basketball, this was one of the sweetest. THE BEGINNING: Their
Best-selling Author of A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier PAUL WELLMAN
An Evening with
HOOP LEADERS: Basketball coaches David Bregante (left) from S.B. High and Sal Rodriguez from Laguna Blanca were teammates at SBCC, where their lifelong friendship was solidified.
parallel paths began in 196061, when Bregante, a slightly built Santa Barbara High senior, played his ﬁrst season of basketball.“I wasn’t very good,” he said.“Sal was a great player.” Rodriguez was a dynamic junior guard at San Marcos, the new school across town. The Royals went all the way to the CIF Division II championship game. “I’ll never forget it,” Rodriguez said.“We lost by 11 to Bell Gardens.” He later realized how special that year was. San Marcos has made only one other appearance in the ﬁnals. Bregante went to SBCC and started to develop as a basketball player. Rodriguez also became a Vaquero, and they were teammates in the season ending in 1963. It was the beginning of a lifelong friendship.
WESTMONT AND U.S. WARRIORS: Bregante got a job after his stint at SBCC, but he kept playing basketball in the city recreation leagues. He caught the eye of Westmont College coach Tom Byron, who recruited him to join the Warriors. In the 1967-68 season, Bregante was one of the nation’s leading scorers with an average of 23.6 points per game. Rodriguez went to Fresno State, where he ended his playing career to concentrate on getting his degree. He was drafted into the army in 1968 and spent a year in Vietnam. CAREER DECISIONS: Rodriguez went to work at the Goleta Boys Club in 1970. He put his basketball
knowledge to work, coaching future prep and college players. One of them was Ben Howland.“I used to kick his butt one-on-one, but when he was 15 and I was 30, I couldn’t beat him,” Rodriguez said.“I told him he’d never catch up with all the wins I had.” When Howland was head coach at UCLA, Rodriguez brought him back several times for Boys & Girls Club fundraisers. Bregante, meanwhile, was an assistant coach at Westmont while working toward a teaching credential. In March 1973, after Byron died from cancer, the Warriors rallied to reach the NAIA National Championships, where Bregante experienced a painfully unforgettable moment: “We lost to Guilford College on a last-second shot by World B. Free.” Bregante spent the next several decades teaching at Santa Barbara Junior High and Rio Mesa High. He was content to coach at the 9th-grade and junior-varsity levels. FATHERS AND SONS: Basketball always was the
topic whenever Bregante and Rodriguez got together. They joined forces with the late John Ward in coach-
ing their sons — Joseph Bregante, Bo Rodriguez, and Johnny Ward — on a Boys Club team that included future NBA guard Julyan Stone. “We were the Three Musketeers,” the elder Bregante said. Johnny Ward has succeeded his father as coach at Carpinteria High, and this past season, Joseph and Bo were assistant coaches to their fathers at Santa Barbara and Laguna Blanca. A BLESSED SEASON: Neither Bregante nor Rodri-
guez planned to become varsity basketball coaches at retirement age. They were needed.“I felt bad for the kids there,” said Bregante, who agreed three seasons ago to coach a Santa Barbara team that had won only two games in the previous year. Rodriguez had earlier taken the Laguna Blanca job at the request of a friend whose son was on the team.“Our main philosophy is that the kids gotta have fun,” Bregante said. “They enjoy up-tempo basketball, running up and down the court. If they share the ball and play hard, good things happen.” It happened for both their teams this year. Rodriguez ﬁrst had to persuade some parents at Laguna Blanca, an academically oriented private school, to let their sons play basketball.“We have a chance to do something great,” he told them. After taking some licks against much bigger schools, the Owls won the Condor League championship and put together three CIF play-oﬀ victories before losing to top-seeded Trinity Classical Academy, 49-38, in Valencia last Friday.“They were a hungry team from losing in the ﬁnals a year ago,” Rodriguez said.“Every time they made a basket, the place went crazy.” Bregante’s Dons had a sensational year, ﬁnishing with a 25-3 record. They went unbeaten in the Channel League and scored 92 points in their ﬁrst play-oﬀ game. But while they could run away from most teams, they did not have much brawn. In Friday’s semiﬁnal at Oak Park, their ﬁnesse lost out to a physically imposing team, 64-57. Bregante was sad to see it end for the senior players (Jack Baker, Noah Burke, Isaiah Tapia, and David Trujillo) who had energized the Santa Barbara program. “I love these kids and hate to see them go,” he said. “I thank the Lord I got to coach them, with my son helping me. It was a blessing.” For more sports, including a weekly highlight schedule, see independent.com/sports.

SIPS WITH SMILES: Winemaker Danny Miles runs the show at Oreana Winery, which was only the second tasting room ever opened in the Funk Zone. Said Miles,“We want wine to be approachable.”

ometimes it feels like a stretch even calling Santa Barbara’s wine trail “urban,” but placing Summerland Winery under that title just feels silly. Save for the steady roar of the , sleepy beach towns don’t get much cuter than these steep hillsides full of postcard-ready cottages, so it’s probably more apt to categorize this tasting room as the lone stop on the “Quaint-SeasideHamlet Wine Trail.” But small-town modesty never stopped the Summerland crew from making high-minded wines, particularly their line of well-heralded and widely sold pinot noirs.

f you weren’t following Santa Barbara’s wine scene a decade ago, you may take for granted how revolutionary Oreana Winery was when it opened its doors on the corner of Anacapa and Yanonali streets back in 2005. Not only was it just the third wine-production facility in town and second in the emerging Funk Zone neighborhood, but the winery — which was actually ﬁrst founded as the cooperative Cellar — also put an unprecedented emphasis on fun, cultivating an environment of live music and loud parties that made the world of wine much more of a social scene and less of a stodgy and studious pursuit. Today, in a Funk Zone jam-packed with places that now do a lot of the same, it’s easy to wonder whether any of it would even exist had Oreana not swung the gates wide open. Nine years later, the winery’s winning formula remains intact. “We don’t want to be a stuﬀy tasting room,” said Danny Miles. A Santa Ynez native who started working in wine before he could legally drink, Miles signed on with Oreana back in 2006 and became head winemaker three years ago.“We want wine to be approachable. We want it to be fun.” He’s never liked tasting rooms when the servers try to impress their customers with superior wine wisdom, but Oreana’s front-line employees also happen to be more knowledgeable than most. “They all work during harvest,” said Miles, who is now the face of the winery since founder Christian Garvin moved on to his Avelina project, which was brieﬂy across the street before moving north last month. “They’re immersed in it daily.” That’s the beneﬁt of having the tasting room connected to the production facility, a rarity in the urban wine scene, and customers get the extra education, as well. “Almost every day during harvest, we bring people back here to do punch-downs,” said Miles, explaining that he also has tasting-room visitors run the pH numbers and sugar levels for the fermenting wines.
Those wines change a lot, too; Miles shops the by-ton fruit market every harvest rather than holding onto acreage contracts, a strategy that saves money, requires ﬂexibility, and makes for exciting oﬀerings each vintage. (He does, however, always use some grapes from the Oreana Vineyard in Santa Margarita, which is owned by the winery’s main investor.) That means you’ll ﬁnd wines from Lodi and Amador counties at Oreana, which produces between 3,500 and 5,000 cases a year, mostly in the $18 to $25 range, much cheaper than a lot of the countywide competition.“We want to represent and promote Santa Barbara County,” said Miles,“but as prices become unaﬀordable, it gets tough.” The annual mix of grapes challenges the Oreana team to be creative with what they buy.“We do a lot of wild blends,” said Miles, including current releases of the Petite Merlot (a powerful 50-50 blend of petite verdot and merlot), and the Barely Legal rosé from verdelho and zinfandel grapes.“I don’t think there’s a winery anywhere in the world that’s done a verdelho-zinfandel blend,” admitted Miles, who also oversees Oreana’s massproduced brands, Mission Point, Project Happiness, and Question Mark, which account for about 90,000 cases per year, sold at Trader Joe’s and other chains. As for the Funk Zone itself, Miles is more shocked than anyone at how much it’s grown. “It’s unbelievable,” he said.“We started with two wine barrels and a plank of wood with an old cash register,” he recalled.“We were happy when two people walked in.” These days, especially on weekends or during one of the many nonproﬁt fundraisers that Oreana hosts, the place is packed with people who manage to sip wine and smile at the same time. — MK

10 CITY HALL GALLERY: De La Guerra Plaza • 735 Anacapa Street Pursuit of Passion: Early Santa Barbara Women Artists: 6pm: Remarks by Mayor Helene Schneider This exhibition celebrates the adventurous and talented (but often unrewarded) early women artists of Santa Barbara. From the late 1800s to the early 1900s women gravitated to Santa Barbara where there was already an established art school, the Santa Barbara Community School of the Arts. Without the support of patrons or the arts establishment, and despite the social constraints of their era, they pursued making art with a passion and found ways to stay in the community and continue to work. 11 MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART SANTA BARBARA

YO YO MA TEAMS UP WITH KATHRYN STOTT BETTER TOGETHER: Cellist Yo-Yo Ma returns to town with longtime collaborator and pianist Kathryn Stott.
or cellist Yo-Yo Ma, variety and change are as natural as breathing. The Silk Road Ensemble, The Goat Rodeo Sessions, Obrigado Brazil, and his work with Bobby McFerrin demonstrate an eagerness to acknowledge and embrace divergent musical expressions. In his lecture last year titled A Life in Music, Ma philosophized on the musician’s experience of constancy and change: how, for example, Bach’s notes stay the same, but the aging pianist hears a diﬀerent cadence decade by decade. One thing that has not changed for the world-famous cellist, however, is his longstanding collaboration with English pianist Kathryn Stott, who will appear in concert with Ma on Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m. at the Granada Theatre. (A free, open-to-the-public Master Class with Yo-Yo Ma will take place Friday, March 14, at 10am-noon at the Lobero Theatre.) Stott recently spoke with us from her Yorkshire home. For tickets, call 893-3535 or visit artsandlectures.sa.ucsb.edu.
COMING OUR WAY
Of course, everyone wants to know what it is like to collaborate with Yo-Yo Ma. First of all, it’s a wonderful experience. We’ve been playing together for almost 30 years, so it’s a very long-standing collaboration. For that reason, we try to bring a lot to each other. You know, we don’t play together every week, so a lot has happened to both of us in the meantime. Since the last tour, we’ve been working with other people; we’ve been to diﬀerent countries. So I suppose when we get together, we try and be fresh and bring some sparkle to the other person. But, you know, he’s a very generous musician. He’s an amazing cellist apart from anything else — but he’s a wonderful musician and a wonderful collaborator. I think that’s an important point to make. So you still learn new things from one another? We’re looking for new things all the time. We have our own lives away from each other and diﬀerent interests. I think the last time we played some of these pieces was maybe October or November. So in the

Actually, that was through Yo-Yo. He was the ﬁrst of us to go to Argentina. I remember very distinctly him calling me at home and saying that he had been performing there, and somebody had taken him to a tango club, and he’d been introduced to the music of Piazzolla. He said to me that we have to play some of this music. I reallyy wasn’t very familiar with it.

TOM BROSSEAU GRASS PUNKS
NECTAR: Like many great folk musicians who came before him, Tom Brosseau occupies a zone that is at once simple and prolific. With 10 albums under his belt stretching back to 2002, the North Dakota singer, songwriter, and storyteller is, first and foremost, a wordsmith, capable of weaving stream-of-consciousness lyrics into perfectly encapsulated little moments of song. On Grass Punks, Brosseau kicks things off by exploring the tricky task of dating in the digital age. On “Cradle Your Device,” the troubadour’s thin voice plays against a delicate steel-string guitar line, gaining strength and momentum as he goes. As we reach song’s end, lines like “I long for you to hold me in your arms / But instead you cradle your device” come across sounding both vulnerable and resigned in their frustration. Throughout the rest of the album, Brosseau manages turns that are equally impressive; “Today Is a Bright New Day” follows Brosseau as he tries to convince himself it’s all going to be all right. Later, “Green Shampoo” provides a poignant instrumental exercise featuring nothing but the singer and his guitar. Stripped-down as ever, Grass Punks ﬁnds Brosseau conjuring a wellspring of feeling and ﬁnding beauty (and sadness) in the everyday and in between. Tom Brosseau plays in Lompoc on Saturday, March 8, at 8 p.m. Visit tombrosseau.com for info. — Aly Comingore
HEALING THROUGH ART Since 2009, Cybil Gilbertson has been curating NECTAR, a quarterly salon where dancers, writers, musicians, and visual artists present work on a given theme. It’s more than a performance; it’s an educational and inspirational community event. This Saturday, Yoga Soup will host the 15th installment of NECTAR, centered on the concept of healing. In keeping with NECTAR’s tradition of contributing funds to a nonproﬁt whose work echoes the theme of the show, a portion of the proceeds will go to Santa Barbara Street Medicine. Among those taking part are modern dance artists Meredith Cabaniss and Susan Shaberman, physical theater collaborative ArtBark, and visual artists Dylan and Friends. From accounts of literal illness and recovery to more abstract meditations on wounding and healing, the evening promises to go deep. Catch NECTAR: The Art of Healing on Saturday, March 8, at 7 p.m. at Yoga Soup ( Parker Wy.). Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Learn more at sbnectar.com. — Elizabeth Schwyzer

et’s face it: Being an artist is often less about choice and more about obsession. In fact, obsession itself is deeply involved in the notion of art. Think of Jasper Johns and the American ﬂag, Marcel Duchamp and chess, Magritte and his bowler hat; all artists who repeated materi- LAYER IT ON: Dorothy Churchillals, themes, and motifs, Johnson’s “Country Meets Mid-Century over and over, again and Modern” is just one of the intricately again. layered paintings hanging as part of “The willingness to The Arts Fund Gallery’s ongoing group risk excess on behalf of show, Obsession. one’s obsessions is what distinguishes artists from entertainers and what makes some artists adventurers on behalf of us all,” John Updike once said. But sometimes repetition and obsession are both the visual preoccupation of the art and essential to the process. Nancy Giﬀord, an artist herself, has curated an exhibit titled Obsession at the Arts Fund of Santa Barbara, on view now through April 5. The group show features work where repetition, obsession, and meditation are key elements to the artist’s process, sometimes obvious in the resulting artwork and sometimes not. In “Country Meets Mid-Century Modern,” a four-paneled work by artist Dorothy Churchill-Johnson, the viewer encounters a kaleidoscopic vision of fabrics and patterns in three dimensions. While the fabrics in ChurchillJohnson’s works feel as if they could suck you in and swallow you whole, her hyperrealistic painting and drawing skills bond the real and the abstract, creating a vertiginous experience that’s obsessed with surface and its rendering. The three paintings are like ingenious surrealistic mousetraps, each a multipaneled canvas depiction of fabric endlessly folding in upon itself in a hardedged realistic style. Artist David Cooley’s pool paintings and compulsively executed signature spikes — perfect brush tips of impasto paint — create an endlessly spiraling sense of chaos that is decorative, textural, optical, and sculptural all at once. Meanwhile, Rafael Gaete seems to be channeling a big-bang-style hybrid of Kandinsky, Miro, and Calder; his hundreds of amoeba-like ﬁgures render thoughts of the exploding cosmos as they escape our grasp. It’s impossible not to experience a mind meld with artistic obsession when viewing Susan Venable’s copper-woven sculptures. These pieces have a meditative and healing sense of process — namely braiding and weaving — that contrasts and collides with the nature of the artist’s materials — metallic frames with extruding sharp copper wires. The wires stick out from the metal frame like hair from a crazy mattress, and examining them up close provides insight into the truly obsessive nature of her process. Elsewhere in Obsession, artist David Diamant seems obsessed with airplanes, ﬂying bodies, and smiling oriental dragons. His hallucinogenic and ﬁnely wrought fanatical drawings printed on metal plates warrant your meticulous attention as you stare into their miasma of comic-book frenzy and action. His “ Moodheads” represents an extraterrestrial panoply of imagination with its depiction of a Star Wars–like lounge of characters. Christopher Rupp’s two playful yellow and green dogs are an on-site installation, painstakingly built out of pills — yes, pills — over the course of two days. Glued one by one to the gallery wall, one can only imagine and perhaps hope that those pills contain an analgesic for some of the obsessions raised by Rupp’s exhibit. The artist whose work seems most emblematic of obsession in execution and content is Staﬀord Taylor, whose pen-and-ink drawings depict tiny cosmologies that partake in Jungian imagery and notions. One 6�×7� work titled “I Love You So Much I Want to Throw Up” features three slug-like ﬁgures wrapped in a tight embrace. It’s drawn in thick and thin black ink lines that almost seem to breathe. The intimacy in size and detail and fanciful sense of reality in his “Coastline of the Manifestery” reminds the viewer of some of the larger drawings of imaginary worlds in Michelle Stuart’s recent show at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art In all, Giﬀord and the Arts Fund have provided viewers with a fascinating collection of artists and the opportunity to journey into the compelling nature of artistic obsession.

UNTITLED IV BY RUTH MARKOFSKY
Todd Thomas Stars in Opera Santa Barbara’s Latest Production
by Tom Jacobs
ike a lot of us, Todd Thomas is trying to watch his weight. He’s doing a lot of juicing and working out at the gym. But at the same time, he’s worrying a bit that he doesn’t look fat enough. A contradiction? Not at all. The celebrated baritone is playing the title role in Opera Santa Barbara’s production of Falstaff, which opens on Friday night at the Granada Theatre. Inhabiting the role convincingly requires rotundness, but you have to be in reasonably good shape in order to have the stamina to sing it.

Untitled IV by Ruth Markofsky is about place and family – the kind we’re born into, and the kind that we build, sometimes haphazardly. At the center of the story is Ruth, a Boston native who has settled in Joshua Tree to build her famously expansive sculptures and raise her young son. In a moment of personal and creative crisis, Ruth summons an eclectic group of characters to grapple with questions about motherhood and loss, adoption and addiction – and the consequences, real or imagined, of putting plastic in the dishwasher.

It makes for quite a house party, especially considering that Ruth hasn’t ﬁnished “Untitled IV” and it’s due to be unveiled in the early light of dawn the following day. Tatlock’s canny mix of satire, drama, and magical realism is a good match for director Risa Brainin, who gets some excellent performances out of this extremely able cast. Some subplots, like the one involving a drug deal gone slightly awry, don’t completely pay oﬀ, but overall the show oﬀers a good way to dramatize and externalize the various pressures that Ruth carries around every day in her head. The chemistry between Finlayson, Torsiglieri, and Redd is exciting to watch, and the action never ﬂags, even when old business becomes the emotional focus. The play was not oﬃcially ﬁnished when we got a glimpse, so this is oﬃcially not a review, but by all means, if you are interested in what a woman must go through in order to be both a mother and an artist, get out to the Hatlen and check out this show. It plays through March 8. ■

LAUGHTER BEHIND THE SCENES Noises Off Puts What’s Backstage Out Front at SBCC
A film about the
by Charles Donelan
he premise alone is remarkable: A not-so-talented, deeply dysfunctional theater company sets out to tour with a dumb sex farce called Nothing On. In Act One, we witness one hilariously ineffectual dress rehearsal through which we get to meet the cast and learn about some of their personal issues. Lloyd (Jay Carlander), the director, is the womanizer at the center of a love triangle involving the stage manager, Poppy (Jenna Scanlon), and the APPETIZING: Ann Dusenberry ingénue, Brooke (Janina Mason). serves up a platter of fish in Freddy (Raymond Wallenthin) and the wild Michael Frayn farce Belinda (Polly Firestone Walker) Noises Off. are both actors, although he is easily frightened and distractible. Theatre Group at SBCC regulars Jon Koons, Ann Dusenberry, and Ed Lee play other key members of the cast and crew for the show-within-the-show. The whole thing revolves — quite literally in this case, as the entire set is mounted on a carousel — around a reversal of the setting in Act Two, which takes place backstage during a matinee performance of Nothing On. In that act, what begins as a tense last 15 minutes until curtain rapidly escalates into a wickedly slapstick free-for-all. Act Three picks up the show again, 10 weeks later, and from the regular vantage point. By this time, the cast is over it, and much of the dialogue for Nothing On gets ad-libbed to cover mistakes. I spoke with Rick Mokler at the Garvin last week about the experience of directing Michael Frayn’s modern comic masterpiece.
Noises Off is a very funny show. Are you having a good time working on it? It’s a mixture of fun and pure hell. The second half of Act Two is the single most diﬃcult thing I’ve ever done as a director.
That’s the part when everyone is horsing around backstage while the show is supposedly going on the other side. Those must be difficult cues to remember since they are played through a wall. Deﬁnitely. The scene has to be completely memorized by every actor or
it won’t work. And to begin with, we didn’t even have the wall! For the beginning of the rehearsal process, the actors were walking on tape — that’s all the set they had.
How long did it take to get it all down? It took much longer to stage Act Two than it took to do both the other acts put together. We worked for over 16 hours just on that. In terms of the time in preparation it demands, that scene compares very directly to a diﬃcult dance number in a musical.

What other shows that you’ve done would you compare it to? It kind of reminds me of when we did The Buddy Holly Story. That show had all live music, and we were doing it before we had wireless microphones and pickups, so the whole thing depended on a bunch of cords. If you started to roll a platform to change the scene and any one of those cords pulled loose, there goes your sound. It made me very nervous to watch, and I feel the same way about Noises Oﬀ — I’m sitting up here watching and thinking that at any moment the whole thing could go oﬀ the rails.
What’s your biggest hope for this production? That nobody in the audience will even notice how complicated it was to create. We worked hard to make it happen, but I hope that once everyone is onstage, it plays easy, loose, and funny.

FINDING AN INNER EAST
Charles Lloyd Returns to the Lobero with Sangam D. DARR

here is a poem by Walt Whitman in which the poet’s elastic identity migrates around the globe with the tides of humanity, from ancient Asia to modern America, only to end up facing west from California’s shore. With Manifest Destiny exhausted, the restless seeker can turn nowhere except within himself: “But where is what I started for so long ago? / And why is it yet unfound?” The poem anticipated many seekers of the 20th century THREE’S COMPANY: Sangam finds Indian tabla master Zakir Hussain who turned west to ﬁnd an (left) and drummer Eric Harland (right) joining forces with jazz pioneer inner east, but few people Charles Lloyd (center).

ince fall, the art of esoteric moviegoing has improved vastly around these parts. You know what kinda movies I mean — ﬁlms. They’re the art-house celluloid enigmatic wonders that stretch in an unbroken line from Jean Luc Godard’s Alphaville to Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac: the kind that for generations Santa Barbarans have complained that Metropolitan Theatres (the company with a de facto movie monopoly in S.B.) just won’t book with any regularity. “I have to drive to L.A. to see the movies I want to see,” whines the perennial bleary-eyed bohemian with a copy of Cahiers du Cinéma tucked ﬁrmly under his arm. Well, not really, or at least not any more, thanks to a happy coalition between the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and the folks at the Metropolitan Theatres Corporation. So far, the historical concord has been sterling, serving up ﬁlms that otherwise no one might have known about, from the dark Israeli comedy Big Bad Wolves to the brilliantly unforgettable documentary about Indonesian political murders in the 1960s, The Act of Killing (my personal pick for best ﬁlm of 2013, no matter what Oscar declared). This week is no exception in the unexpected but indispensable viewing department, as the series known humbly as Showcase screens the second half of Generation War, a two-part big-screen presentation of a German ﬁlm of historical import. Not unlike a cross between Downton Abbey and Band of Brothers, this incredibly engaging melodrama tracks the lives of ﬁve young people in Berlin — two Nazi soldiers, a nurse, an entertainer, and a young Jew — about to participate in the horrors of World War II. David Denby of the New Yorker calls it “confounding — silly and tragic, physically alive and morally obtuse.” And the best part is that, thanks to the Showcase series, you can judge for yourself at the Plaza de Oro Theatre on Wednesday nights. “It’s something we always wanted to do,” said Roger Durling, the decadelong head of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, whose genius at programming was always clear.“We just ﬁnally went to the Corwins [the family that owns the Metropolitan theater chain] and proposed the whole thing, and they said yes.” As for Metropolitan, the corporation has long argued that they work hard to balance proﬁt motive against chance-taking and have frequently acknowledged that this town, with all of its colleges and proximity to the movie business, has more sophisticated tastes than the chain’s other stores.“Financially it doesn’t make any sense for them to book a ﬁlm that won’t draw an audience for more than one night,” said Durling. So for Wednesday nights only, Durling and the festival books the ﬁlm, takes the risk, and then takes the house (read: any money made at the box oﬃce). The Corwins take home proﬁts from popcorn and Cokes (which normally exceeds box-oﬃce take-in by a factor of ﬁve or six times). Durling is well situated due to his personal relations with small studios and, he readily admits, a captive audience. The rest is programming skill, and Durling has thus far managed to keep Wednesdays booked with ﬁlms he’s seen, either at studio screenings or at other ﬁlm festivals. So far, the biggest hits were The Grand Beauty, an Italian Oscar winner, and Muscle Shoals, a documentary about the soul music label. “We had to bring both of them back for second screenings,” Durling said. His only regret is that a few ﬁlms, like The Act of Killing, didn’t draw bigger crowds. Nothing has ﬂopped disastrously, though, which is great news for a theater that’s only open one night a week.“So far it’s been great,” said Durling.“It was always a long-term, time-and-place plan.” So tell your cinephile friends: It’s weird Wednesday movie night from now on. The Showcase film series screens a new movie every Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m at Plaza de Oro Theatre (371 S. Hitchcock Wy.). For a complete listing of films, visit sbiff.org/the-showcase.

Non-Stop (106 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of action and violence, some language, sensuality, drug references)
Under normal circumstances, a ﬁlm like Non-Stop, whose title fairly well indicates its energy and tension level and whose shamelessly sentimental asides lighten the action/suspense load, would be one of those movies that inspire extra-weepy and extra-nerve-jangle responses in the comfort of an airplane seat. But, alas, you won’t be seeing this one on your in-ﬂight movie menu anytime soon: Non-Stop is all about criminal and terrorist threats and actions going bump during an international ﬂight. Of course, post-/, there is a built-in extra layer of angst attached to the scenario laid out here about an air marshal (Liam Neeson) caught in a diabolical plot by unknown parties/passengers using the real-time but anonymous medium of texts in an air-bound game of cat and mouse. Yes, there are texting-savvy snakes on the plane! When Neeson appeared on The Daily Show recently, Jon Stewart — who obviously hadn’t seen the ﬁlm — made a fumbling faux pas about the plot details of Non-Stop, saying that there were daughters in the mix. It is getting confusing keeping Neeson’s new screen life/job jag in the action-ﬂick genre, between the Takens and other ﬁlms capitalizing on the hulkingyet-calm actor’s steely resolve and softspotted heart. Those qualities are nicely exploited again in Non-Stop, and could-be love interest Julianne Moore has taken due notice of them. In the end, it’s all a bit pulpy, but Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra (also behind the Neeson-starring thriller Unknown) shrewdly takes advantage of the claustrophobic quarters, creating an eﬀective pressure-cooker situation and capitalizes on a smartphone-era relevancy in which “texting while ﬂying” takes on new meaning. Not coming soon to an inﬂight screen near you. (JW) Camino Real/Metro 4

Love, Your Family march 6, 2014
a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF MARCH ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Are you between jobs? Between romantic partners? Between secure foundations and clear mandates and reasons to get up each morning? Probably at least one of the above. Foggy whirlwinds may be your intimate companions. Being up-in-the-air could be your customary vantage point. During your stay in this weird vacationland, please abstain from making conclusions about its implications for your value as a human being. Remember these words from author Terry Braverman: “It is important to detach our sense of self-worth from transitional circumstances and maintain perspective on who we are by enhancing our sense of ‘self-mirth.’” Whimsy and levity can be your salvation, Aries. Lucky ﬂux should be your mantra.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): The renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma once came to the home of computer pioneer Steve Jobs and performed a private concert. Jobs was deeply touched and told Ma,“Your playing is the best argument I’ve ever heard for the existence of God, because I don’t really believe a human alone can do this.” Judging from the current astrological omens, Taurus, I’m guessing you will soon experience an equivalent phenomenon: a transcendent expression of love or beauty that moves you to suspect that magic is afoot. Even if you are an atheist, you are likely to feel the primal shiver that comes from having a close brush with enchantment.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): In my dream, I was leading a pep rally for a stadium full of Geminis.“Your intensity brings you great pleasure,” I told them over the public address system. “You seek the company of people who love you to be inspired. You must be appreciated for your enthusiasm, never shamed. Your drive for excellence doesn’t stress you out; it relaxes you. I hereby give you license to laugh even louder and sing even stronger and think even smarter.” By now the crowd was cheering, and I was Homework: What were the circumstances in which you were most dangerously alive?

bellowing. “It’s not cool to be cool,” I exulted. “It’s cool to be burning with a white-hot lust for life. You are rising to the next octave. You are playing harder than you have ever played.”
CANCER (June 21 - July 22): “My old paintings no longer interest me,” said the proliﬁc artist Pablo Picasso when he was 79 years old. “I’m much more curious about those I haven’t done yet.” I realize it might be controversial for me to suggest that you adopt a similar perspective, Cancerian. After all, you are renowned for being a connoisseur of old stories and past glories. One of your specialties is to keep memories alive and vibrant by feeding them with your generous love. To be clear, I don’t mean that you should apologize for or repress those aptitudes. But for now — say, the next three weeks — I invite you to turn your attention toward the exciting things you haven’t done yet.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): I recommend that you sleep with a special someone whose dreams you’d like to blend with yours. And when I say “sleep with,” I mean it literally; it’s not a euphemism for “having sex with.” To be clear: Making love with this person is ﬁne if that’s what you both want. But my main point is that you will draw unexpected beneﬁts from lying next to this companion as you both wander through the dreamtime. Being in your altered states together will give you inspiration you can’t get any other way. You won’t be sharing information on a conscious level, but that’s exactly the purpose: to be transformed together by what’s ﬂowing back and forth between your deeper minds.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): “One chord is ﬁne,” said rock musician Lou Reed about his no-frills approach to writing songs. “Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz.” I recommend his perspective to you in the coming weeks, Virgo. Your detail-oriented apprecia-
tion of life’s complexity is one of your ﬁnest qualities, but every once in a while — like now — you can thrive by stripping down to the basics. This will be especially true about your approach to intimate relationships. For the time being, just assume that cultivating simplicity will generate the blessings you need most.
the realm of a soul itch — a prickly tickle that is hard to diagnose, let alone treat. I’m guessing that there may be just one eﬀective cure: Become as still and quiet and empty as you possibly can, and then invite your Future Self to scratch it for you.
(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): The world is awash in bright, shiny nonsense. Every day we wade through a glare of misinformation and lazy delusions and irrelevant data. It can be hard to locate the few speciﬁc insights and ideas that are actually useful and stimulating. That’s the bad news, Capricorn. Here’s the good news: You now have an enhanced ability to ferret out nuggets of data that can actually empower you. You are a magnet for the invigorating truths you really need most.
(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): You Librans haven’t received enough gifts, goodies, and compliments lately. For reasons I can’t discern, you have been deprived of your rightful share. It’s not fair! What can you do to rectify this imbalance in the cosmic ledger? How can you enhance your ability to attract the treats you deserve? It’s important that we solve this riddle, since you are entering a phase when your wants and needs will expand and deepen. Here’s what I can oﬀer: I hereby authorize you to do whatever it takes to entice everyone into showering you with bounties, boons, and bonuses. To jumpstart this process, shower yourself with bounties, boons, and bonuses.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): “The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing,” wrote the Roman philosopher Marcus Aurelius more than 1,800 years ago. Is that true for you, Scorpio? Do you experience more strenuous struggle and grunting exertion than frisky exuberance? Even if that’s usually the case, I’m guessing that in the coming weeks your default mode should be more akin to dancing than wrestling. The cosmos has decided to grant you a grace period — on one condition, that is: You must agree to experiment more freely and have more fun than you normally allow yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): For the itch you are experiencing, neither chamomile nor aloe vera will bring you relief. Nor would over-the-counter medications like calamine lotion. No, Sagittarius. Your itch isn’t caused by something as tangible as a rash or hives and can’t be soothed by any obvious healing agent. It is, shall we say, more in
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): If you come up with an original invention, apply for a patent immediately. If you think of a bright idea, put it to work as soon as possible. If you ﬁgure out crucial clues that everyone else seems blind to, dispel the general ignorance as quickly as you can. This is a perfect moment for radical pragmatism carried out with expeditious savvy. It’s not a time when you should naively hope for the best with dreamy nonchalance. For the sake of your mental health and for the good of your extended family, be crisp, direct, and forceful.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): In the 1997 ﬁlm Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, the lead character announces that “‘Danger’ is my middle name.” Ever since, real people in the U.K. have been legally making “Danger” their middle name with surprising regularity. I think it would be smart fun for you Pisceans to add an innovative element to your identity in the coming days, maybe even a new middle name. But I recommend that you go in a diﬀerent direction than “Danger.” A more suitable name might be “Changer,” to indicate you’re ready to eagerly embrace change. Or how about “Ranger,” to express a heightened desire to rove and gallivant?

WINE GUIDE Wine of the Week Deep Sea White Hawk Vineyard Syrah 2011
From the seagulls and seaspray to passing boats and pier‑to‑peak views, there are plenty of distractions when perched above the Pacific Ocean at the Deep Sea tasting room on Stearns Wharf. So it’s a good thing that this syrah is such an attention‑hogging powerhouse, its inky color, bacon‑laced aromas, fleshy fruit flavors, pronounced oak toast, and nearly 16% alcohol content bringing your mind squarely back to what’s in your glass. It may not inspire serenades from the cool‑climate syrah crowd, which tends to groove more on herbal essences than dark berries, but if you’re into lush, rich, even thick red wines, this is your animal. Still not sure where you fit on the syrah spectrum? Just mention this writeup and receive two‑for‑one glasses of this syrah at the Deep Sea tasting room until April 1. See deepseawines.com.

THAI GOODBYE: Neighboring Thai restaurants are relocating from the De la Vina Street area to downtown and uptown Santa Barbara. Bangkok Palace at De la Vina Street hopes to open in April near De la Guerra and Chapala streets. TAP Thai at De la Vina Street is moving to State Street, the former home of Brummis. RUMOR MACHINE: Word on the street is that the owners of The Lark restaurant at Anacapa Street are considering purchasing Bay Roadhouse Bar & Grill at State Street and transforming it to a wine-garden concept. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call. THREE PICKLES SUSHI: Reader Bob tells me that, during the evening, Three Pickles Subs and Sandwiches at East Canon Perdido Street transforms into a sushi bar, hosted by Chef Ryoji. For more information call 965-1015. ARTISANS’ MARKET: A local artisans’ market is
coming to the parking lot near the Goleta Outback Steakhouse at Calle Real. The weekly open-air event will be 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. every Saturday, beginning March 8. RESTAURANT OPENINGS: Here

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 855‑ 880‑6845 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. NATIONWIDEPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 2720‑009093‑F00. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 855‑ 880‑6845 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.

My name is Gorda, but unlike the name implies, I’m not a fatty, but I am a big girl - approximately 100 lbs., with a Big Heart! I’m a 5 year old Boxer & Pit Bull Mix. I love to get my belly rubbed and will thank you with a BIG... no HUGE, kiss. Play ball? Sure! I’ve been at the Humane Society for three years! While everyone here loves me and I am a favorite, I’ve been here way too long. I need a home! I come with some GREAT perks! Because I’m so special, I have a Sponsor who is offering to my new owner upon my adoption, eight one-on-one training sessions with Nathan Woods, Dog Trainer and Owner of Santa Barbara Pet Services. Nathan specializes in training Boxers & Bull Dogs and their owners. My Sponsor will add another 8 sessions paid in full upon request. In addition, although I am a healthy girl, I know even basic Veterinary Care can be expensive. My Sponsor is also offering to pay for my basic vet services from Adobe Pet Clinic up to $500/year for 5 years that includes Immunizations, Annual Wellness Exam, and Teeth Cleaning.
