THE SAGE OF SACRAMENTO
Jerry Roberts and his Capitol Letters column are back, and here at The Santa Barbara Independent, we’re very glad to have this time-honored Sage of Sacramento on board again. A former political writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, then managing editor, Jerry taps into his sources from the first Jerry Brown regime (to say nothing of Willie Brown’s era as assembly speaker) and the 2014 Jerry Brown incarnation. With Brown seeking reelection, this should be a fun year. As Roberts points out, if Brown wins, he’ll be the first person elected governor four times, and the oldest in California history (but still making news).

by KELSEY BRUGGER, TYLER HAYDEN, LYZ HOFFMAN, MATT KETTMANN, and NICK WELSH, with INDEPENDENT STAFF DORMANT: The dredger sits idle while
the Harbor Patrol (background) makes sure no boats get stuck.
Imperfect Storm Seals Harbor Because of a protracted contract dispute between the Army Corps of Engineers and a private dredge contractor, AIS Construction, the City of Santa Barbara’s harbor found itself effectively walled in this week by the unusually large sand deposits left by powerful storm surges. Only the flattest hulled vessels — used by lobster, crab, and urchin harvesters — could get out. The rest — larger fishing boats, Coast Guard ships, fishing and diving charter boats, whale-watching tour boats, and sai l boats — were stranded. One tour ship, the Double
Dolphin, had to be hauled in by the Harbor Patrol when it got stranded on a sand dune. Waterfront officials canceled a cruise ship scheduled to stop in Santa Barbara on Wednesday. For the first time in many decades, the harbor did not get dredged this November, creating a significant buildup of sand. City officials had communicated their anxiety that this might happen in advance, but to no avail. Because of air-quality issues, the dredger must be powered by electricity rather than oil or gas. AIS is the only contractor capable
of doing the job. When the three-year contract came due this fall, AIS insisted it be paid substantially more the first year than the other two. The Army Corps balked. In the end, Army Corps spokesperson Jay Field said federal taxpayers were saved $250,000 from the original bid. AIS will dredge 300,000 cubic yards of sand a year for $2 million for three years. Because of the buildup, there’s an estimated 315,000 cubic yards now. Field said AIS will “work around the clock” to get the harbor open. — Nick Welsh
Shaken, Rattled, and Roiled Homeless Shelter Directors Laid Off, Volunteer CEO Steps In
BY N I C K W E L S H ast Thursday proved especially hellacious for Casa Esperanza, Santa Barbara’s long-embattled homeless shelter on Cacique Street. At 5:30 in the evening, a herd of Santa Barbara police oﬃcers and detectives arrested a Casa guest wanted by Honolulu police for seconddegree murder. Robert Ryan RoedigerGeauque, 32, was arrested quietly and without incident as he watched TV in the shelter’s lounge. Far more emotionally diﬃcult — at least for Casa’s management — was the highdrama announcement made earlier in the day to terminate longtime executive director Mike Foley and his second-in-command Imelda Loza in response to chronic ﬁnancial woes. Foley and Loza were notiﬁed of their layoﬀs Thursday, and by Friday they had emptied their oﬃces. Passionate, articulate, and at times outspoken, Foley had worked nine years for Casa, where he’s been its most public face with fundraisers, government oﬃcials, and ever-vocal neighborhood 10

critics. Loza, in charge of day-to-day operations, had worked for Casa eight years. Together, their terminations will save the cash-strapped shelter nearly $200,000 a year in salaries and beneﬁts, said Episcopalian minister — and Casa board chair — Mark Asman. Although Casa Esperanza had successfully generated $700,000 in the past six months as part of a desperate fundraising drive, Asman said the layoﬀs were decided upon when the board found out six weeks ago that workers’ comp costs were $30,000 higher than anticipated and that about $90,000 in expected grants would not materialize. Asman described the decision to lay oﬀ Foley and Loza as “extremely diﬃcult,” terming their contributions as “stellar.” Making it possible, Asman said, was the willingness of new boardmember Bob Bogle, who runs an Atlantabased commercial real estate enterprise from his South Coast home, to step into the void. Bogle, who has volunteered at Casa the past two years, is now volunteering to work full-time as the shelter’s executive until its ﬁnances are stabi-
lized. Asman said that the cuts will enable Casa — which provides a maximum of 200 beds a night in winter months — to make it through this ﬁscal year and into the next. Foley and the Casa board have spent the past two years trying to put out ﬁres. Neighborhood critics with the Milpas Community Association complained the shelter had become an attractive nuisance and violated the terms of its conditional-use permit with City Hall. Although city planners thought otherwise, the shelter was brought up short for not dealing more aggressively with street people hanging around — though not staying there — to take advantage of the free-lunch outreach program. In response, the shelter, its critics, and ancillary stakeholders engaged in a lengthy mediation program that, though private, was said to be quite intense. Behind the scenes, Foley and the Casa board found themselves scrambling to deal with $2 million in loans they had borrowed to enable the cont’d page 12 shelter to survive the reces-

News of the Week
A UCSB student was arrested by campus police 3/6 after he rushed the court during a UC Santa Barbara–Hawai‘i basketball game and yelled in the face of University of Hawai‘i’s head coach (pictured). After being shoved away by two Hawai‘i players and an assistant coach, the fan — who hasn’t been identified — ran back into the stands before officials quickly ushered him out of The Thunderdome. The incident made national news and prompted an apology from UCSB athletics department spokesperson Bill Mahoney. “This one person’s selfish act does not represent the passionate atmosphere our students display,” he said. A life-threatening stabbing sparked a period of disorder in Isla Vista on Saturday night. Eighteen-year-old Kuriyan Summers-Dickinson (pictured) of Lompoc was charged with assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly stabbed a 20-year-old Rhode Island resident — visiting his brother for the weekend — in the stomach on Del Playa Drive. A crowd of more than 1,000 who were chanting and throwing bottles gathered at the scene, authorities said, and deputies used pepper spray and batons to push back resisting individuals before closing the street. Kincaid Orosco, accused of hitting and killing 59-year-old Shuguang Lui in Goleta last November, pleaded not guilty to charges related to the incident. The 18-year-old faces charges of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, felony sale or transportation of marijuana, felony possession of marijuana for sale, and unsafe operation of a motor vehicle with great bodily injury, which is an infraction. If found guilty of the vehicular manslaughter charge, Orosco could be sentenced to one year in County Jail. If convicted of the drug charges, Orosco would face up to four years in prison.
An anti-abortion ministry known for its aggressive and controversial outreach work is pursuing criminal charges against a UC Santa Barbara professor who allegedly stole one of its banners, assaulted one of its members, and then helped destroy the banner during a confrontation on campus last Tuesday. The UCSB Police Department is investigating the incident. Read more at independent.com.

Minding Millions Budget Talks Focus on Jail Funding and Maintenance Measure
In concert with its seemingly nonstop rise in popularity and sales, Sonos will soon expand its Santa Barbara presence in a big way. The private company — which has dominated the wireless speaker market since it started here in 2002, boasted $535 million in revenue last year, and even ran a Super Bowl ad in February — recently leased more than 100,000 square feet of new space along the downtown corridor and in the Funk Zone. Over the coming months, Sonos will move into the two-story, 22,000-square-foot building at 614 Chapala Street; the three-story, 28,000-square-foot building at 419 State Street; the three-story, 47,000-square-foot building at 25 East Mason Street (pictured); and sign a new lease at some of its current offices on Salsipuedes Street. Sonos remains headquartered on De la Guerra Street, with additional offices on Garden and State streets, as well as international facilities in China, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. The Chapala Street property has been occupied for 10 years by Samy’s Camera, which is looking for a new home, perhaps at 1117 State Street between CVS and Anthropologie. The building sold about four months ago, boosting the property tax, and the camera store is reportedly unable to pay the related higher rent rate. Global facilities director Ingvar Meijers said Sonos intends to turn the sprawling Chapala Street location into an urban campus and the company’s global headquarters, expanding another 6,000 square feet into 600 Chapala Street. The company will largely transition out of its De la Guerra Street by October but maintain the property’s front building. All of the new spaces will need renovation work, Meijers said, some of it major. The 419 State Street space, formerly occupied by Territory Ahead, will be used for software development and customer service, while the Mason Street location — known as the Bekins building and sold to a new owner for $21.5 million last week — will be for research and development in wireless hi-fi systems. Sonos currently employs about 270 people in town, a number that could reach 500 in just a few years, said Meijers, predicting that even more space will be needed by 2016. Meijers said that the dollar amount of these leases is “significant” and that Santa Barbara has presented some rental challenges other places don’t. “We’re focusing on spaces that are 25,000 square feet or bigger, but there’s a short list of places like that in town,” he said. After examining other locations in Goleta, Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara at large, Sonos decided to stick in central S.B. because, as Meijers explained, “We — Tyler Hayden appreciate the downtown vibe.”
called the reductions “sad news” and the result of the company’s shifting priorities to product development, engineering, and customer care. Wahl said the laid-off employees are being encouraged to apply for new jobs that will be created by the shift. Changes are afoot at Mission & State, a nonprofit news website covering Santa Barbara County that launched in June 2013 with a focus on long-form, multimedia journalism. Its executive editor, Joe Donnelly, is stepping down, and Josh Molina — who previously worked for the Santa Barbara News-Press and the Daily Sound — has been hired as a staff reporter. Donnelly said he decided to leave because his wife is about to give birth to their first child and because he felt his salary was over-burdening Mission & State’s budget. The Harbor Heights Manor apartment complex next to SBCC’s campus sold this week for $33 million, the largest sale on the South Coast since the Tropicana Gardens in Isla Vista sold for $64.5 million in 2010. Harbor Heights, which went from the Schulte family to an undisclosed buyer, had not been sold since it was built in 1971.
COUNTY After more than a year of meetings and often heated discussions, the county’s planning team unveiled a new draft of its wine ordinance, which, if passed as is, would establish a threetier system of permitting based on whether an applicant wants to build a winery without a tasting room (minimum two acres of grapes planted), one with a tasting room (20-acre minimum parcel with at least 10 acres planted in grapes), or one with a tasting room and special events (40-acre minimum, 20 acres in grapes). The county is now taking public comments on the draft until 4/4, and more details can be found at sbcountyplanning.org. The supervisors delayed a decision about whether to approve a contract to outsource Public Health’s laboratory services to Pacific Diagnostic Laboratories, voting to take up the discussion at the upcoming budget hearings. The contract — up to $400,000 and through June 2017 — would replace the services performed at Santa Maria and Santa Barbara labs and help save Public Health, which is set to lose $7.3 million in state funds due to projected cont’d page 12 health-care-act revenues,

sion. Partially in response to mounting ﬁnancial pressures, boardmembers began to question the nature of Casa’s core mission. From its start in 1999, the Casa had been set up to provide shelter and service to anyone in need, no matter how unwilling they might be to seek help. But for clients trying to get clean and sober, the presence of openly intoxicated individuals proved destabilizing. Likewise, the inability to provide a quiet space for the mentally ill segregated from the population at large posed another problem. Last March, the board announced it would adopt a sober-only policy — a dramatic change — and that the free-lunch program would be eliminated. Many homeless activists worried the new policy would put countless people on the streets without access to shelter, but those fears have not been borne out, at least not in the adjacent lower Milpas neighborhood. In the meantime, Casa managed to secure housing oﬀering 14 beds — away from the din — to those on the streets struggling with mental-health problems. The shift, according to recent statistics, seems to have worked. Last week, Casa was
nearly full with a census of 192 guests. About 20 percent of those applying for shelter are turned away for open intoxication, less than the 30-40 percent initially projected. Even so, the shelter has reported a one percent increase in the number of bed-nights spent there, indicating that those who get in stay and stay longer. Shelter staﬀ described a 70 percent reduction in “incidents” and infractions they report. And the Santa Barbara police records suggest the number of calls for service from December to March 1 dropped from 110 last year to 82. As to why that might be, police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood said, “I can’t put my ﬁnger on anything other than speculation,” but characterized it as a “signiﬁcant change.” Foley said he would do anything he could to help the board and the new shelter director succeed. In the meantime, he ﬁnds himself in the unaccustomed position of having time on his hands. “Hey, I’m watching my 7-year-old son play second base,” he said.“So how bad can ■ it be?”

The decision by the Board of Supervisors to allow the construction of two mansions on the Gaviota Coast was appealed to the California Coastal Commission at the end of last month by a number of environmentally minded parties. Last week, two of those groups, the Gaviota Coast Conservancy and the Surfrider Foundation, also filed suit against the County of Santa Barbara for certifying the environmental report. Attorney Marc Chytilo said he believes the Coastal Commission may consider the appeal as soon as its 4/9 meeting.

ENVIRONMENT The County Planning Commission heard a proposal for 56 new oil and gas wells on a property in Garey (just outside Santa Maria), which would employ cyclic steam injection. The project’s emissions are just under 10,000 metric tons per year, a standard the supervisors used last fall to limit the emissions of Santa Maria Energy’s 136 cyclic steam injection wells. Expected to produce 1,600 barrels of oil daily, the proposed operation by Bakersfield-based PetroRock LLC has raised some eyebrows among neighbors and environmentalists; county staff has said all issues can be mitigated.

EDUCATION Adelante Charter School parents and students showed up in full force to Tuesday’s board meeting to kick off the charter renewal process. Four years ago, the county’s only Spanish-English immersion school — then known as César Chávez Charter School — nearly shut down but was able to say open with a new charter, new instructional model, and collaboration with district administrators and boardmember liaison Ed Heron. During Tuesday’s hearing, several supporters spoke of the school’s success. At the next meeting, boardmembers will dissect the 68-page petition for charter renewal, as well as staff’s recommendations, before voting on the charter renewal on April 22. Santa Barbara City College officials announced good news for the second year in
Pay Raise for Teachers
For the first time in five years, teachers in the Santa Barbara Unified District will receive a pay raise. Teachers — and classified staff — will see a 2 percent increase retroactively effective from July 1 of last year, and a one percent increase effective March 1. Teachers who have worked for the district for five years earned $51,202 last year, so the hike translates to a little more than $1,500 this year. The moderate pay hike follows a sea of changes for Santa Barbara teachers. Beginning last fall, the start of the new professional learning communities program — which eliminated department chairs and reorganized teacher collaboration by course and grade level — changed the nature of teachers’ work. The implementation of the newfangled discipline model dubbed restorative approaches — which will roll out to additional schools next fall — also expanded the scope of teachers’ responsibilities. As with teachers across California, area educators will continue to prepare for Common Core State Standards and are expected more and more to incorporate technology into the classroom. “For me, this raise is really more of an appreciation for the value of our teachers,” said boardmember Monique Limón. Moving forward, the conversation between teachers’ union representatives and district administrators will continue. At Tuesday’s meeting, the board voted to reopen negotiations between district administrators and union representatives, which will include talk about health and welfare benefits, hours and conditions, class sizes, and more. Teachers (like all district employees) have seen a steady increase in their healthinsurance costs over the past several years. For the 2013-2014 school year, there was a 10.5 percent increase in health-care costs, and in the past, costs have gone up by as — Kelsey Brugger much as 25 percent.

Approximately half of the UCSB student body opted to receive an unlicensed meningitis vaccine called Bexsero during a free twoweek clinic that ended 3/7. More students are expected to receive the shot as several student groups made arrangements to receive the vaccine in the next few weeks, said UCSB spokesperson Andrea Estrada. No additional cases have been reported since four students were diagnosed with the bacterial infection in November. A second shot will be offered in late April.

Second District Supervisor Janet Wolf (pictured opening her new campaign office) recently received a $40,000 donation from the political committee for Service Employees International Union (SEIU), bringing her total campaign war chest to more than $150,000; her $92,000 in donations last year were mostly relatively small amounts from individual donors as well as $7,000 from Supervisor Salud Carbajal. Wolf’s challenger Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves raised $106,000 in 2013, including $4,000 from Pacific Petroleum in Santa Maria, $2,000 from the president of Santa Maria Energy, and $5,100 from the Towbes Group. Several county officials up for reelection — most notably 5th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino and District Attorney Joyce Dudley — will be unchallenged in the June 3 primary; the filing deadline was 3/7. The 2nd District supervisor race will remain between incumbent Janet Wolf and Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves, and the Sheriff’s contest will pit Bill Brown against challenger Sandra Brown. State Assemblymember Das Williams will face two challengers, and Congressmember Lois Capps will square off against two fellow Democrats, five Republicans, and one declineto-state. ■

Six Degrees of California
Silicon Valley Tycoon Fronts Ballot Measure to Create a Sextet of States
ired of plotting and chasing after local elected oďŹƒces while waiting around for Lois to retire from Congress already? Then sign on to the â€œDivision of California into Six States Initiative,â€? and before you know it, you could be Governor, Attorney General, or even a U.S. Senator from West California! That, at least, is the parochial political promise held out by Tim Draper, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist and sponsor of a proposed fall ballot measure that would whack the Golden State into six modest-sized members of the Union. Californiaâ€™s secretary of state has given Draper the go-ahead to gather the 807,615 signatures he needs by midsummer to put his constitutional amendment before voters in November. The high-tech guru, who helped invent digital marketing for Yahoo and other online pioneers, expects to put $750,000 of his fortune into the eďŹ€ort. During a recent national media blitz, he insisted voters would endorse his plan as a serious bid to bring accountability and eďŹƒciency to a sprawling and perplexing government. â€œThe Internet has disrupted a lot of industries, and it has changed a lot of things, and I think that it might be not a bad idea to have six fresh states that can respond well to this new world we live in,â€? he said in an interview with Time. The initiative calls for the reorganization of Californiaâ€™s 163,696 square miles and 38 million people into six states, from north to south:
â€œJeďŹ€ersonâ€? would include northernmost rural counties. ďż˝ â€œNorth Californiaâ€? would hold greater Sacramento, Marin, and Sonoma counties. ďż˝ â€œSilicon Valleyâ€? would enclose, well, Silicon Valley: the Bay Area, down to Monterey County. ďż˝ â€œCentral Californiaâ€? would contain the Central Valley. ďż˝ â€œWest Californiaâ€? would be us: S.B., S.L.O., and Ventura counties plus, um, L.A. ďż˝ â€œSouth Californiaâ€? would consist of San Diego and Orange County. ďż˝
â€œPeopleâ€™s identity might be an issue,â€? Draper acknowledged. â€œBut once they get over that, I think theyâ€™re going to start thinking, â€˜what would my state look like? And what could be better? And how should it be governed?â€™ And then itâ€™s just a matter of doing crowdsourcing on what the ďŹ‚agâ€™s going to look like and what the state bird is and what the state constitution looks like.â€? We can see The Indy headline already: â€œRed-Throated Loon or Blue-Footed Booby: Helene, Salud Clash over New State Bird.â€?
MONTE WOLVERTON /CAGLECARTO ONS.COM
Memo to: Salud, Das, Helene, and Dale Re: Your political future
To be sure, Draperâ€™s plan is all but certain to suďŹ€er the same sad fate of all the scores of other break-up-the-state bids since California entered the union in 1850: â€œOur roads are not passable, hardly jackassable,â€? for example, was a key slogan of a 1941 campaign, mounted by residents of rural northern counties to create the original state of JeďŹ€erson, which World War II derailed. As a political matter, the initiative requires not only a majority vote in California but also approval from both houses of Congress. That would represent a considerable challenge: For starters, each new state would send its own pair of senators to Washington, increasing the size of that body from 100 to 120 while scrambling its ideological and partisan makeup in unknowable ways; itâ€™s hard to imagine incumbents approving such change as a priority. As a policy matter, the initiative is better termed the Lawyers Relief Act of ď˜şď˜šď›œď˜ź, given the exquisitely complex arguments it would spin oďŹ€ over matters like population, taxation, and water, for starters, all but ensuring a decades-deep quagmire of litigation. At 1,985 words, the proposal is deceptively simple; the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst issued a report on some of its implications and, at 5,013 words, barely scratched the surface. Among other ďŹ ndings, the analyst projected wide wealth discrepancies among the six new states. Silicon Valley would be by far the richest, with a per capita income of $63,288 and Central the poorest, at $33,150 (West California checks in third, at $44,900). These calculations, along with other sizable diďŹ€erences estimated about school ďŹ nance, tax burdens, welfare caseloads, and prison populations, are fueling widespread commentary, debate, and in some cases, outrage in the political community and among academics, business leaders, and legal scholars. Draper insists his proposal is only a framework to begin making the radical, political, and economic changes needed in California, which he calls â€œungovernableâ€? because each state would have the power and opportunity to design its own operating structure. Hereâ€™s a suggestion: Letâ€™s boot L.A. out of West California. If six states are good, seven will be even better. â–

A Celebration of Life for our mother, Anne Beckwith Johnson (–) will be held on Saturday March th, : PM at the Unitarian Church, Santa Barbara Street. A reception with family will follow in the Parish Hall.
On February th Robert Wendell Reynolds passed away peacefully, with his daughter Wendy and close friend Mary Ann Kestner at his side. Wendell, as family and friends knew him, was born March , in Lorenzo, Nebraska, to parents Robert and Lois Reynolds. He married Bonita ‘Bonnie’ Carole Myers on June , , having two daughters and a son. Wendell worked in many fields including the railroad, lumber mills and service in the US Navy. In the family moved to Santa Barbara, California where he went to school, later working with NASA in micro engineering. In Wendell and Bonnie started a business called Bondell Awards & Trophies, which contin-
ued until shortly before his death, five days shy of age . Wendell was a master engraver and not only loved his work but treated everyone coming into his shop as a friend. His amazing optimism and humor-filled inspiration radiated well beyond the sphere of his business, making him a role model and hero for many in his community. Preceding him in death were his wife Bonnie, daughter Pamela, son Steven, one brother and a sister. Surviving are his daughter Wendy Reynolds-Cohn and husband Michael Cohn of Albuquerque, NM, brother Donald
Reynolds of Eagle Point, Oregon, grandchildren Waylon Shipman and Leah Blanyer, as well as many nieces and nephews and four great granddaughters. A memorial celebrating Wendell’s life will be announced and held in the coming months. For details email peterlackner@mac. com. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of the Robert Wendell Reynolds family to: ARC of Santa Barbara, Cathedral Oaks Rd., Santa Barbara, California .

Opinions A BUCKET OF WARM SPIT: For the record,
I’m done with nice. How about fear for a change? How about some cold-blooded retaliation worthy of Kevin Spacey’s character in the overwrought House of Cards? I’m speaking of course about our exceedingly nice Congressmember Lois Capps, in what promises to be her umpteenth reelection campaign against a ﬁeld of seven no-name, no-hope, why-even-bother candidates. Capps has run for Congress so many times now my abacus has run out of beads. And every single time, nice emerges as the dominant campaign subtext. Capps herself is quick to play the “nice” card, having her aides remind us how often she’s won the Nicest Member of Congress award. On the ﬂip side, there are the multitude of surprised losers she’s consigned to the dustbin of history. Every single one launched their campaign against Capps by praising her — wordfor-word — as “a very nice person.” And Capps actually is nice. Maybe that’s the problem. Republican Congressmember Doug LaMalfa, a right-wing, homophobic nut-job
representing a district in California’s farm belt, introduced a bill that would allow the Santa Ynez Chumash to take 1,400 acres of farmland now on the county tax rolls and annex it into the tribe’s sovereign nation; that’s called poaching. If someone poaches on your turf, you’re not supposed to let them get away with it. Capps needs to get mad, and she needs to get even. Instead, we get some namby-pamby pseudo-statement about how she’ll oppose the measure if and

Getting Your Dog On
when it gets to the ﬂoor for a vote. Maybe Capps needs to take that stethoscope she used to wear around her neck back when she was a school nurse and wrap it around LaMalfa’s until his eyes pop out. Certainly that’s what Capps’s opponent Chris Mitchum — star of many C-minus chopsocky sex-n-violence exploitation movies — would do. (Mitchum, we are to believe, was forced into accepting such lowly rolls only because Hollywood’s militantly sanctimonious PC liberal elite black-balled him after he appeared in a movie, Big Jake, with right-wing warmonger John Wayne. Somehow, Bruce Dern’s career never suﬀered even though he also appeared onscreen with the legendary Mr. Wayne. But then, maybe Dern was eventually forgiven because his character wound up killing Wayne’s character in The Cowboys. ) Look, if the Chumash want to build their housing elsewhere so they can maximize the hotel and gambling opportunities provided on their limited reservation acreage, I totally get it. It’s a nice scheme. And who among us doesn’t want to make more money? But why should we county taxpayers subsidize them by giving up all the property taxes now collected on this property? Are we supposed to cut mental-health services so the casino can more proﬁtably bring Engelbert Humperdinck to the South Coast? And do we really want to put housing on land now zoned for agriculture without any say-so over so massive a land-use change? You don’t have to be a racist to ask, “What’s in it for me?”
though admittedly some of those posing the question undeniably are. LaMalfa may not be a household name in Santa Barbara, but elsewhere he personiﬁes the adage that “Extremism in pursuit of opportunism is no vice.” When he’s not busy shamelessly feathering his own nest, LaMalfa takes care of his own. In the face of foreign olive oil imports competing with domestic producers — some of whom live in his district — LaMalfa has suggested the imports be subjected to new labeling requirements, replacing the words “extra virgin” with “extra rancid.” When it comes to out-ofcontrol government spending, he is — as is often the case — a screaming hypocrite. LaMalfa owns major agricultural operations, which currently beneﬁt from federal farm subsidies to the tune of $5 million a year. That, in his book, qualiﬁes as a “hand up.” Food stamps, by contrast, qualify as a “handout,” and consistent with this thinking, LaMalfa has voted to cut Food Stamps by $40 billion over the next 10 years. Maybe if Capps weren’t so bleeding nice, she might introduce a bill to disqualify any member of Congress from receiving farm subsidies while in oﬃce. Obviously, it wouldn’t pass, but it would deﬁnitely send a message. Likewise, Capps needs to take a legislative ball-peen hammer to the kneecaps of fellow Dem John Garamendi — who represents Contra Costa County in Congress — for intruding in the aﬀairs of her district, as well. Garamendi has been humping Vandenberg Air Force Base’s legs
so hard on behalf of Exxon and Sunset Energy that all the generals have bruised femur bones. The Holy Grail in this case is permission to open up the air-force base to a slant-drilling operation on behalf of Sunset, whose principal, Bob Nunn, has donated $13,000 to Garamendi over the years. In years past, air-force brass has refused to even consider such a thing, citing incompatibilities with its national defense mission. But with military cuts looming, their opinions could change. Capps, for the record, has opposed any and all new drilling in the channel. Nunn has sought to address that with a tour de force of double talk. Although the oil in question will be sucked out of oﬀshore reserves, that word — “offshore” — should never be used, he said, because oil reserves are located under the ﬂoor of the ocean. Technically, that’s the ground. And besides, the drilling rigs would be onshore, too. Because Nunn’s family has extensive agricultural interests, I’d suggest Capps convene a Congressional ﬁshing expedition to investigate any farm subsidies the Nunns may have improperly received. Or as a senior member of the Energy & Commerce Committee, she could convene a special hearing to explore the fracking potential of the subsurface mineral rights at Garamendi’s personal residence. But what do we get instead? A press release announcing that Capps has formed a bipartisan committee to promote the cut-flower industry. How nice. — Nick Welsh

Diablo’s in the Details
ast week’s article “Fukushima Stirs Diablo Fears” [independent.com/fears] contained quotes that epidemiologist Joseph Mangano’s report on radiation was “junk science” and fearmongering. It failed to say that numerous independent nuclear industry experts and physicians reviewed and endorsed the report, and that Mangano has published over 30 articles on radiation and health in peer-review scientiﬁc and medical journals. Santa Barbara’s own Dr. Stephen Hosea observed, “The data contained in [Mangano’s] report support a remarkable predisposition of persons living within a 15-mile radius of Diablo Canyon nuclear plant to have a signiﬁcantly increased incidence of various cancers, including thyroid, breast, and melanoma.” — Jerry B.

any dharma students wondered in dismay at the provocative words on the cover for an otherwise good piece of journalism that tells a story that needs to be told [independent.com/burma]. The choice to bring religion into it just provokes the issue rather than clarifying it. Just as Bin Laden had little to do with the truth of Islam, this has little to do with the truth of Buddhism. Like Bin Laden, the man on the cover is an egocentric individual with distorted, toxic views. Under the banner of a religion, he struts his harmful views to the discredit of his religion, and to human dignity, human rights, and — Vidya Gauci, S.B. global understanding.

Oil prices are rising, and interest in fracking is increasing. Despite the risks, fracking continues in 10 counties, including ours. Gov.

Goleta’s Shore Evermore
magine going to Goleta Beach Park and ﬁnding no beach. Studies prove that seawalls cause beaches to disappear, and the unpermitted one at the west end of Goleta Beach must be removed to preserve the beach; otherwise, future generations will have no beach — only waves sloshing against the rocks. Engineers’ new plans would remove the illegal seawall and expand the park by one acre, protect the restaurant with a permitted rock seawall and 250 feet of cobble berm, relocate parking spaces in danger, and move the bike path and the sewer line. Adding a cobble berm would help protect the park from erosion without scouring the beach. Park facilities can be relocated and lawns can be replanted, but the beach is irreplaceable. Residents should encourage the county to remove the harmful seawall in order to save this critical community beach. It makes sense and will end years of debate.

Let the Hedge Wars Begin
Ukraine; what about the hedge wars brewing along quiet Santa Barbara streets? The city is pondering whether to let frontyard shrubs be twice as high as the existing ordinance allows — which it ignores anyway. Look, I survived the Goleta water wars of the 1970s and a few years ago escaped the simmering Riviera hedge wars. I’ve seen these leafy battles pit neighbor against neighbor. I know families who haven’t spoken for decades. And woe to the innocent homeowner who buys into one of these combat zones. Forget about going next door for a cup of sugar. You can close escrow on a hillside charmer with a gorgeous ocean view, look out the picture window, and notice the guy downslope planting one those fast-growing hedges that all too soon will block the whole darn Santa Barbara Channel. Some cities have passed view-protection laws, but not Santa Barbara. Too nasty to mess with, I guess. Some hedges hit way over 10 feet. In a worstcase scenario, it means going to court. You pay the downslope owner for a view corridor running with the title. Don’t laugh. It happens. A sunset view is likely to cost you big bucks when you negotiate for a home. Then the guynext-door’s hedge goes up. In Bakersﬁeld, this probably wouldn’t matter, but here it does. The existing ordinance — which the city in all its wisdom and desire to opt out of controversies decided six years ago not to enforce — sets a

front-yard hedge limit of three-and-a-half feet. The new proposal would allow seven-and-ahalf feet. I’m not clear about who’s pushing this, except that in the feedback I’m hearing, there’s a certain xenophobic ring. Some people apparently don’t want others to see their house, or them in or around it. Could be dangerous, you know. And they don’t want to see those driving or walking by, either. I can understand the desire for privacy, though — certainly a fading commodity in a society where drones can skim over your swimming pool or hot tub and snap photos (not that a hedge would stop that). In our desire for the beneﬁts of urban living, we give up a lot. We hear and see our neighbors, but if we’re lucky we can enjoy them and
become friends. Here on our ﬂatland street in San Roque, no one has a front-yard hedge, but mountain vistas are still spectacular. No sidewalks, either. Neighbor kids play in the street, and I enjoy seeing them. A boy down the block plays drums once in a while, and Ed across the fence toots his trombone melodiously. But so far, no garage bands or spite hedges.

Luckily for preschoolers at the Storyteller Children’s Center, De la Vina Street, they get classes, meals, and TLC, and their parents get counseling to help start a new life. And to assure that little ones still have that TLC, Storyteller just announced that donations have allowed it to buy the property — a permanent home for homeless child

modations, showers, and communications overnight. Imagine having to account for every penny spent and securing funding authorization simultaneously. Imagine having to work with law enforcement to evacuate 47,000 city residents without looting or incident. Imagine coordinating with Public Works to shift water from one reservoir to another so there’s enough water pressure to ﬁght ﬁre. Imagine doing all this simultaneously, and you get the idea. There are endless hours of planning and preparation before a major ﬁre even ignites.“Pat’s best work may be all the stuﬀ he does when nothing is happening,” said UCSB political science assistant professor Sarah Anderson, who helped instigate the Bren School wildﬁre program. With 20 percent of the population moving over the past 20 years into previously uninhabited ﬁre country, the wildﬁre symposium addresses a dangerous reality Santa Barbara has been grappling with for decades. The onslaught of extreme weather changes poses the questions more pointedly — California used to have a distinct “ﬁre season”; now it lasts all 12 months. In the month of January alone — traditionally one of the wettest months — California ﬁre
agencies have reported 450 ﬁres. Among the many experts who spoke at the event was a tree-ring expert from Arizona State University, Tom Swetnam. McElroy was blown away: “He shows slides of giant trees, and by looking at the rings, he can say,‘Here’s the year Jesus was born, and here’s the time of the Reformation,’” McElroy explained. Swetnam’s research transcends the obvious realm of “Cool!” and “Wow!” and penetrates the plane of “Holy Shit!” But not in a good way. The tree rings show — coupled with soil core analysis — the intensity and frequency of droughts and ﬁres throughout the Western United States over the past 2,000 years. The punch line is that in the past 100 years, ﬁre fuels have accumulated to an unprecedented degree because of aggressive ﬁre suppression eﬀorts. Making matters more combustible, Swetnam warned, over the past 25 years, springtime temperatures have reached record heights. Even more dire, research suggests that if greenhouse gas emissions continue at current rates, by 2050, the average drought in the American West will be as bad as the worst droughts of the past 1,000 years. McElroy’s takeaway? “Forests change,” he said.“It used to be we were all grasslands and oak woodlands. Now we’re surrounded by a dense chaparral belt,” which is more likely than trees to burn, and it burns hotter, bigger, and faster and spreads farther. Chaparral is also signiﬁcantly less susceptible to ﬁre-prevention treatment regimes. Given the central role McElroy played ﬁghting the Tea Fire, the Gap Fire, and the Jesusita Fire — which claimed 300 homes combined, 21,000 acres, and cost $50 million — none of this qualiﬁes as revelation. These are issues for which the department has already initiated programs that have been going

for some time. Still, McElroy revels in really smart people examining the same problems he confronts and hearing what they have to say.“I just love that a university of this stature would bring experts from all over the country to look at what we do on the ground from 30,000 feet up,” he gushed.“It would be foolish for me not to try to learn from them all.” Other ﬁre chiefs had a diﬀerent reaction. County Fire Chief Michael Dyer, a major political force in his own right and someone with whom McElroy enjoys exceptionally cordial relations, objected that the series’ organizers failed to invite the area ﬁre chiefs, who — he acerbically noted — might have some valuable experience and insights to share. It seemed a legitimate beef. McElroy’s response? “I just invited myself,” he said with a mix between a shrug and a laugh. But he took it one step further; McElroy invited others in his ﬁeld to attend.
And they came. As a result, at some lectures, the front row of seats was entirely occupied by ﬁreﬁghters — all wearing their uniforms. It was classic McElroy.

explained. His parents met in Avalon on Catalina Island in 1951, where McElroy’s father — his family worked for the Wrigleys, who owned the island — spent much of his early boyhood. Politically, McElroy’s father was a Kennedy Democrat and his mother a Goldwater Republican. Normally, such a combination might produce sparks. That it didn’t might be because the McElroy family was experiencing its own “question authority” moment. When McElroy’s younger brother Matthew was born with Down’s syndrome 52 years ago, the doctors strongly advised his parents not to bring him home. He would “ruin” the family, they said. That was the medical orthodoxy of the time. Back then, a doctor’s word was second only to God’s. Even so, the McElroy family rebelled. They brought Matthew home and circled the wagons with clannish ferocity. “My parents taught me certain slurs were never to be ignored,” McElroy would write later. “Woe to anyone who crossed the McElroy brothers and sister over Matthew.” McElroy’s mother would publicly confront bestselling author Leon Uris because he used the term “Mongoloid”— then a common term for people with Down’s syndrome — in his book Ireland: A Terrible Beauty. Uris would later send McElroy’s mother a written apology, deleted the word from the book’s later editions, and sent Matthew an autographed copy. Matthew, a phenomenally accurate shooter on the basketball court, would go on to participate in the very ﬁrst Special Olympics, and appear in ads for the event with the L.A. Lakers. McElroy cites this as a deﬁning moment in his development both politically and personally. The lessons learned, he said, were all about “compassion, resilience, and loyalty.” It also taught him, he said, to respond to underdogs with kindness. In 1971 — a year after the Isla Vista bank burning — he enrolled at UCSB, majoring in anthropology. Mostly, he wallowed in all the music. As a student, McElroy performed poorly and dropped out after
the ﬁrst year. He held a variety of jobs but wound up working at an oil reﬁnery near Long Beach, where he got his ﬁrst taste of union politics.“If you wanted to do anything there, you had to be union,” he recalled. “I mean, it was union union.” But when his older coworkers found out McElroy had dropped out of university, they gave him no peace.“They got mad at me,” he recalled.“It was like I had this opportunity that I wasn’t taking. It made no sense to them.” McElroy got the message. He went back to UCSB and ﬁnished his degree in 1977. There he met Bonnie Kerwin — then a student and now his wife and mother of their three kids — who is well-known for her work with the Starr King Parent-Child Workshop.
When McElroy became a ﬁreﬁghter, the departments were in the process of changing from top-down, militaristic, chain-of-command operations. The younger ﬁreﬁghters bristled at such rigidity, and the public demanded departments capable of conducting two-way conversations. In this context, McElroy was golden. He was young, good-looking, and ridiculously poised and professional in front of TV cameras. Reporters didn’t make McElroy nervous; he liked talking to them — and he was good at it. He was also able to work well with politicians. Early in his ﬁreﬁghting career, he volunteered on Tom Rogers’s campaign when he successfully ran for City Council. McElroy became a close friend of Rogers — a charismatic, moderate Democratic with an environmental bent — until Rogers’s life was prematurely ended by Lou Gehrig’s disease. Rogers was the ﬁrst of many candidates the newly formed ﬁreﬁghters’ union endorsed, a union McElroy was instrumental in forming. When he ﬁrst joined the department, city ﬁreﬁghters were represented by a trade association unaﬃliated with any other labor organizations. McElroy quickly set about to change that, replacing the association with a bona ﬁde union,
C ST OV OR ER Y
the International Association of Fire Fighters, Local . Though he technically served only one term as president, ident, it was largely McElroy’s union until he was promoted to management. McElroy’s good relations with politicians proved to be essential in growing the power of the union. When Local endorsed a candidate, it usually made a sizable ﬁnancial contribution, but best of all, it sent squads of burly good-looking ﬁreﬁghters to walk precincts and knock on doors. On political matters, McElroy worked intimately with Police Oﬃcers Association representative Sergeant Mike McGrew. McGrew’s father, Warner McGrew, was one of the ﬁre chiefs McElroy worked for over the years. Over time, McElroy and the chief’s son would team up to create the Pat-n-Mike show, the now legendary guns-and-hoses (police and ﬁre) political coalition. To the extent possible, the police and ﬁre unions sought to coordinate their endorsements to maximize their impact. Even today — with the unions’ collective reputations diminished by public resentment over their members’ high retirement beneﬁts — the two unions’ endorsements remain among the most inﬂuential any candidate can get. “It was huge,” recalled Mayor Schneider of the ﬁrst ﬁreﬁghters’ endorsement she received in 2003. It was her very ﬁrst race. She was running for the City Council as part of a progressive, social-justice slate. Schneider was working for Planned Parenthood at the time. She ﬁrst met McElroy when he responded to a possible bomb threat.“He was being Pat McElroy,” she said. In that race, Schneider was the only crossover candidate who won support from both public safety and the social-justice camps.“For me, it was a really big deal,” she said.
Wet On Red
Former ﬁre chief McGrew described ﬁghting ﬁres as “putting the wet stuﬀ on the red stuﬀ.” That hasn’t changed since McElroy ﬁrst joined the department. What has changed is how the wet stuﬀ gets there. Some of this is technical. Eight high-tech “ﬂame sniﬀers,” for example, are planned for installation on top of Edison power poles around Mission Canyon — at a cost of $20,000 each — to help detect ﬁres when they’re still small. Thanks to a Homeland Security grant, the Santa Barbara County Fire Department now has a helicopter equipped with a video camera so ﬁreﬁghters on the ground better know what to expect as they arrive to the scene of a ﬁre. Night-vision goggles allow helicopters to drop retardant and water in the dark, still a relatively new development for Santa Barbara County. Cell phones, the Internet, and social media all provide vastly faster avenues of communication between ﬁre departments and their crew, not to mention the ﬁeld commanders and the public. McElroy brings 30 years of relationships working with other ﬁrst responders throughout the state. When they show up in Santa Barbara to help, they don’t necessarily know where to tread lightly. They have to be told, and personal connections matter. In ﬁres, they matter a lot. “When the ﬂames are ﬂying and you’re stuck on the side of a hill, things can get pretty tense and pretty intense,” said County Fire Chief Dyer. “The bottom line is that I trust Pat, and Pat trusts me.” McElroy oﬀers more than good connections — he has impeccable experience. He has served at high levels with the incident command teams in major disasters throughout the state and nation. Typically, McElroy served as liaison oﬃcer, a fancy title for herding cats. If help from a utility company was needed, it would be McElroy’s job to connect with the right person. And fast. During Hurricane Katrina, McElroy was dispatched to Mississippi, where he worked alongside Herb McElwee, the former chief of the Montecito Fire Department.“Herb had this magical ability to get along with people,” he recalled. That happened to be precisely the magical ability the moment called for.“It was our job to ﬁnd the person in charge whose permission we needed to get to do what we needed to do,” explained McElroy. McElroy served as liaison oﬃcer for the incident command team at the Day Fire, as well, which burned out 162,700 acres in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Kern counties. It fell to McElroy to notify the California Highway Patrol that the ﬁre commanders were shutting down Highway , over which hundreds of millions of dollars worth of goods and services travel daily.“Pat gets people to work together, to respect each other,” said former ﬁre chief Andy DiMizio.“He has an innate ability to ﬁnd the middle ground,” agreed former chief McGrew.“Not everybody has that.” Lucky for us. ■

ST. PATRICK’S DAY
left: Breanna and Andrew Winter relax at Chase Palm Park after a day of celebrating Breanna’s birthday. “I just got drowned by the ocean, and now we’re about to go to Dargan’s, which is where we celebrated our wedding!” said Breanna, a full-time student working toward becoming an elementary school teacher. The two live at Vandenberg AFB, where Andrew, who will be deploying at the end of the month, is a military police officer.
IRISH SODA BREAD Soda bread was introduced to Ireland in the mid-1800s when the leavening agent bicarbonate (i.e., baking soda) became available. It’s a tasty, easy-to-make comfort food that is still popular today. The recipe below is courtesy of Mairead, who writes the blog Irish American Mom. Visit her site for step-by-step photo instructions: irishamericanmom.com. — MD
5 cups all-purpose flour (plus extra for dusting kneading surface) ½ tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking soda 2 tsp. baking powder 4 oz. butter (one stick) 3 Tbs. white sugar 1 cup raisins (or currants) 1 egg (beaten) 1½ cups buttermilk ½ cup plain yogurt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking
powder into a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry cutter or clean fingers, rub butter into the flour until the mixture looks like coarse meal. Add sugar and raisins, and stir to distribute throughout the mixture. Stir the beaten egg, yogurt, and buttermilk together in another bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and add the liquid ingredients. Mix together with a wooden spoon to form dough. Gently knead the dough into a ball. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface, and knead gently into a round form about 9 inches in diameter. Do not over-knead: This creates tough bread. Transfer to a lightly greased 9-inch baking pan. Score the top of the loaf with a cross shape to create four distinct quarters or farls. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for 30 to 40 minutes more. The loaf is baked when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped or an inserted knife comes out clean. If, early in the cooking process, the bread starts to brown too much, cover it with a tent of aluminum foil. Remove from the oven and baking pan. Wrap the bread in a clean dishtowel and allow to cool on a wire rack. Serve the sliced bread with butter.
PIED PIPERS: Celebrate St. Paddy’s with a traipse down State Street with the Indy team.
very March 17, St. Patrick is celebrated with great fanfare all over the world. In Chicago, the river is dyed green; in Sydney, Australia, the Opera House is illuminated in emerald lights; in San Francisco, revelers parade down Market Street; and in Santa Barbara — folks stroll. It may not be the largest, or oldest, but for the past six years, The Independent’s St. Paddy’s Day Stroll has drawn hundreds of enthusiastic merrymakers. Once again, the Pipe and Drum Corps will lead the procession from The Indy oﬃce on West Figueroa, down State Street (on the sidewalk) to Casa Blanca. Post stroll, the 21-and-older crowd can head to the Wildcat for craft beers that include oﬀerings from Figueroa Mountain, Avery Brewing, Firestone, and Lagunitas. For those dressed in green, the suds are only $4. So bring your friends and neighbors, and help The Indy staﬀ make a spectacle for the seventh year. Irish for a day, Independent for life.
— Michelle Drown
The Indy’s St. Paddy’s Day Stroll takes place Monday, March 17. Begin gathering at the newspaper’s back parking lot at 4:30 p.m. The Stroll departs at 5:30 p.m. 122 West Figueroa Street. For more information, call 965-5205.

Santa Barbara Some Recent Words by Area Authors
ur city scribes and processors of words have been very busy. Here is a Whitman’s Sampler of wisdom and wit from a town where literati such as Kenneth Rexroth, Ross Macdonald, and T.C. Boyle hail. The Ides of August, by David M. Brainard. (Lulu.com. $15.) Brainard, one of the city’s ﬁnest actors, not only
survived a heart transplant last year but also kicked around these mean streets since the early 1960s and actually looks like the hero of a neo-noir yarn. In Ides (the ﬁrst of a planned series), the protagonist begins in a courthouse in Santa Maria, smokes a joint on the Pass, and then ends driving oﬀ in the rain, adding more evidence to the case of Santa Barbara as coolest of crime scenes. Surfing about Music, by Timothy J. Cooley. (University of California Press.) Surf music seems about as dis-
tant a topic from academic inquiry as Leadbetter Beach is from Hawai‘i. Cooley, a UCSB ethnomusicologist, begins with the slightly exaggerated premise that tunes from Dick Dale to Donavon Frankenreiter represent a surf tribe’s concerns; then he traces the history of the original new wave of music to its contemporary uses. Hehehe! Wipe out!
Wiley Hall, by Kenneth A. Pettit. (Trafford Publishing.) Another prominent Santa Barbarian, namely Ken
Pettit, former registrar of voters for the last eon or so, sat down and wrote what appears to be a memoir in short story form of growing up in an orphanage. Pettit claims there is no more lonesome world.
Farewell My Country, by A.J. Harris. (Murder Mystery Press, $16.95.) Mystery writer Harris penned this
thriller as a “ﬁctional biography” of his brother, Jack Harris, unfairly persecuted as a communist in the midst of the witch-hunt post-WWII years.
The Great Beyond
Dr. Raymond Moody Talks Near-Death Experience
here is no doubt that Dr. Raymond Moody has changed the way many people look at dying. In his 1975 best-selling book Life After Life, Moody introduced the concept of the near-death experience (NDE), which has become a common phenomenon with the advances of medical resuscitation. The ongoing debate about the possibility of an afterlife has gained momentum since his 2010 book, Glimpses of Eternity, in which he describes the “shared death experience,” where those sitting with the dying person also experience outof-body sensations. The son of a harshly cynical surgeon, military oﬃcer, and medic in WWII, Moody himself is a medical doctor, a doctor of philosophy, a counselor, and a prison psychologist, as well as the best-selling author of 12 books. He is the ultimate rationalist, and conversations with him inevitably veer back to his favorite subjects: the philosophy of language, the reasoning of ancient Greek philosopher Democritus and Plato’s The Republic, and his family, which includes his older children, a grandson, and two teens (13 and 15) still at home with him and his wife in rural Alabama.
When Life After Life was published, had you any idea you were opening a national conversation on death and dying? No, I did not! The book’s ﬁrst printing was 19,000,

Would you agree there’s a revolution going on to restore death with dignity? Most deﬁnitely. We still talk
about death with euphemisms, but there’s a big shift going on.
Is the debate over yet regarding the dismissal of NDEs as hallucinations or a product of “the compromised brain”? The debate has changed surprisingly little. The

are still people who are holdouts to ideology. People into hard sciences, neurophysiology, often ignore a core philosophical question: “What is the relationship between our unique inner experience of conscious awareness and material substance?” The answer is: “We don’t know,” and some people are so terriﬁed to say, “I don’t know.”

How do you see the future of hospices in the U.S.? The baby-boom generation is waking up to their own mortality as they face their parents’ deaths.

Interestingly, the common DNR (do not resuscitate) order in hospitals has changed its language to “allow natural death,” and with this shift, 25 percent more patients and families reportedly signed up.

S.B. Yoga Center KEY HOLDERS: Jivana Heyman (left) and Barbara Hirsch are the proud new owners of S.B. Yoga Center.
here are fresh faces at one of the oldest yoga studios in town. The Santa Barbara Yoga Center — located in the grand, yellow church building at East Micheltorena Street — has been open for 20 years, and, after considerable talk that change was coming, the business oﬃcially has new owners. In the yoga world, it was no secret that the business had been struggling for some time. Last fall, a group of folks had plans to turn the business into a cooperative after the previous owner Lais De Silva decided to sell. “The principle was so great, but it practically just wasn’t going to work in the time frame that we
— Victoria Woodard Harvey
Business had,” explained Barbara Hirsch, who was part of that group. So Hirsch and business partner Jivana Heyman decided the best solution was to buy the place themselves (before a corporate chain had the chance). “We were determined to make the business thrive again as quickly as possible,” she said. The pair signed the papers last week, but classes have seamlessly continued over the past two months. “She’s got the local, and I’ve got the yoga,” said Heyman, who recently moved here from the Bay Area and specializes in using yoga to treat people with disabilities and chronic illnesses. He has managed the San Francisco Integral Yoga Institute for 15 years, practiced for 25, and taught yoga for 18. His goal is to start Yoga Therapy in Santa Barbara and to treat folks with mental and physical disabilities. “Our dream is to make yoga accessible to everyone,” Heyman said, explaining the center will maintain its classical style. Currently, the center has 25 teachers, and word of mouth has already brought in hundreds of prospective yogis. “The more, the merrier,” Hirsch said, who came to Santa Barbara over 40 years ago to study music at UCSB and founded the classical recording studio OPUS . Hirsch said she initially resisted yoga; grouporiented chanting practices were not her cup of tea. But the practice, humility, and sense of community quickly resonated with her, and now she’s been on the mat for 10 years. The center will also keep the same staﬀ. Director Sarah Tuttle called Hirsch and Heyman a “dynamic pair” who have already brought a “vital transition to the beloved center.” Hirsch quit her day job four years ago — she still runs OPUS — and has enjoyed the added free time but said she’s eager to take on the new challenge. “It’s not something I was planning on doing for — Kelsey Brugger the rest of my life.” march 13, 2014

The Art of C.G. Jung’s Red Book
A Reader Writes My Lead
An Exhibition Sponsored by Pacifica Graduate Institute
Images from The Red Book by C.G. Jung used by permission of W. W. Norton & Company. Inc.
Free & Open to the Public thru April 4 | 801 Ladera Ln., Santa Barbara
The collection 23 fine art prints from C.G. Jung’s Red Book currently on display at Pacifica Graduate Institute was originally shown at the Venice Biennale in Italy. This is its first showing in the United States. When Jung embarked on an extended period of self-exploration, The Red Book was at the heart of it. It is an illuminated volume that he created between 1914 and 1930 where he developed his theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process
of individuation. These theories transformed psychotherapy from a practice concerned with treating the sick into a means for higher development of the personality. Jung considered The Red Book his most important work, yet it lay unseen in a bank vault for decades. Then, in 2009, a complete facsimile and translation was published. It is an astonishing example of calligraphy and art on a par with The Book of Kells and the illuminated manuscripts of William Blake. The exhibit is open to the public at no charge through April 4 at Pacifica’s Ladera Lane Campus, 801 Ladera Lane, Santa Barbara. Call 805.969.3626, ext. 364 for additional informaiton or visit www.pacifica.edu
had “help” writing this column. At the recent launch party for my newest book of columns, Broad Assumptions, I held a contest inviting guests to submit the ﬁrst and last lines of a column they’d like me to write — promising that I’d supply the middle part for the winning entry. Twenty-three people wrote suggestions, ranging from “My all-time most embarrassing moment is …” to “Thank God for duct tape!” The crowd voted on the winner: an exacting couplet by vexingly imaginative reader Hattie Husbands. She won a set of my three books, and I walked away with the lines you see in bold below. Last Saturday I was sitting in my kitchen sipping my coﬀee, when suddenly my cat turned and said to me … “What the furball were you thinking?” my ﬁctitious feline purred. “Writing a column that starts and ends with someone else’s words?! You know very well that you don’t have a cat — don’t even like cats — and certainly wouldn’t be talking to anyone before you’d ﬁnished your morning coﬀee. Meow the hell are you gonna write yourself out of this mess?” It’s a fair question, and I’m glad Hattie’s hypothetical cat asked it. You see, there are rules to writing a good column. Columns should be fresh and focused. They should be concise and passionate. They should entertain, enlighten, move, challenge, amuse, or persuade by developing an intelligent argument that has the potential to resonate with readers. They shouldn’t — in other words — be 600 words about how pickle relish debases an otherwise delightful deviled egg. But the best columns? The best columns are true. And that’s important to by Starshine me. I grew up in Hollywood proper. Literally right below the Hollywood sign. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org parents worked in entertainment, so I spent summers on soap-opera sets and fell asleep late at night on sofas in recording studios. It was fun. Of course it was fun. But it had the side eﬀect of making me intolerant of BS. The lights, the scripts, the makeup and schmoozing — it was all so unapologetically false. It was studied manipulation. It seemed to me that with a proper budget, anyone could invent a fantastic ﬁctional tale about anything at all. Even relish. Or deviled eggs. What’s brilliant about that? When I was 10 or 11, I stumbled onto a book of essays by Midwestern housewife Erma Bombeck and a book of poems by CBS news anchor Charles Osgood. Bombeck wrote snarky musings on family life; Osgood wrote witty limericks about politics and other subjects that graced the nightly news. And their stories were a revelation to me. They were written by people I’d never heard of, with whom I could not have had less in common. But they made me laugh, nod in agreement, and feel understood. They connected me to a greater world. They were fresh, they were right — and by God, they were true! And that, to me, was brilliant. That’s what a column should be: a modest stack of paragraphs that entertains with truth, and by doing so reminds us that we’re all more alike than we are diﬀerent. Here are this week’s truths:
. Hattie and the people who voted for her contest entry are cruel and enjoy watching me writhe on the page. . Adding relish to deviled eggs is gilding the lily. . Though Erma Bombeck died in 1996, her spirit is alive in Hattie, whose closing line (known as the “kicker” in column jargon) sounds just like something Erma would have written: … And it was at that moment I promised myself I would never put relish in my deviled eggs ever again!

A Fight to the End For UCSB Men’s Basketball, March Madness Has Already Arrived
hroughout most of UCSB’s basketball season, the turnout of students at the Thunderdome was far below what one might expect for a team that was contending for a league championship with one of the nation’s most productive players. But at the Gauchos’ home ﬁnale last Thursday night, there was one student too many. He was the evidently inebriated spectator, wearing a “Class of ’” T-shirt, who achieved his 15 seconds of shame by running out of the stands and onto the ﬂoor. He confronted Gib Arnold, the Hawai‘i head coach, who was engaged in an altercation with the referees. The intruder was pushed away by a Hawai‘i player. He backpedalled while making bellicose gestures and then retreated to the stands, where he was collared by UCSB athletic oﬃcial Bob Brontsema and turned over to the campus police. Because the game was being televised by ESPNU, the bizarre spectacle was repeatedly shown on the network’s programs during the next 24 hours. SportsCenter had it, of course. The pundits of Around the Horn commented on it. Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon weighed in on Pardon the Interruption. On his talk radio show, UCSB alum Jim Rome gravely testiﬁed that he was embarrassed by the incident. There was an apparent lack of security — how did the miscreant manage to return to his seat before Brontsema caught up with him? — but some commentators overstated the threat level of his incursion. He was in greater danger to himself than any of the coaches, players, or oﬃcials on the ﬂoor. A Bobby Knight or a Neil McCarthy — the combative New Mexico State coach, a former boxing champion, who once had to be restrained from attacking a fan at UCSB — might have rendered him unconscious. He was described by such terms as “idiot” and “moron.” Suﬃce it to say his “fan IQ” was below the usual level of suspended intelligence one associates with raving students in college basketball arenas. Among the students who play the game for UCSB, there is a high degree of basketball intelligence. Take, for instance, Zalmico Harmon, the junior point guard known as “Z.” His assist-to-turnover ratio of 4.69-to-1 is the second-highest in NCAA Division . The Gauchos also have the nation’s leading rebounder (11.6 per game) and 12th leading scorer (21.6) in junior center Alan Williams. The Big West bestowed six Player of the Week awards on “Big Al” this season, and on Monday the conference named him the 2014 Player of the Year. Harmon was honored as the Hustle Player of the Year, and senior guard Kyle Boswell, a mechanical engineering major, earned the Sixth Man award. Those are the UCSB students who deserve to be talked about on ESPN, and maybe that will happen if the Gauchos advance to Saturday’s ﬁnal of the Big West Tournament at the Honda Center in Anaheim. They have put together one of their best seasons under 16th-year head coach Bob Williams. Something was left out of all the reportage of last Thursday’s drama: UCSB defeated Hawai‘i, 86-77, for its 20th victory of the season. Two nights later in San Luis Obispo, the Gauchos whipped Cal Poly, 71-55, to cap oﬀ the regular season with a record of 21-8. The Big West Tournament is packed with genuine excitement. Only the champion is expected to qualify for the NCAA tournament. Every game is a desperate ﬁght for survival. There is no such ﬁnality in conferences like the ACC, Big Ten, SEC, and Pac- that will receive multiple NCAA bids. For them, March Madness does not kick in until next week. In the Big West, it has already arrived.
PETER VANDENBELT PHOTOS
by John Zant UCSB’s ﬁrst game in Anaheim is fraught with peril. The Gauchos, who ﬁnished second in the regular season, a game behind UC Irvine, must face seventhseeded Cal Poly again. The Mustangs are capable of upsetting the Gauchos; they did so in their conference opener back in January. Three UCSB sharpshooters — Boswell, Michael Bryson, and Taran Brown — went 1-for-15 from three-point range. That cannot happen again. The Gauchos’ nerves should settle down if they get past Cal Poly (game time is noon on Thursday, March 13) and move on to Friday night’s semiﬁnals. Alan Williams said he’s been striving to play every
FLEET FEET: Junior point guard Zalmico Harmon (#3) — known as “Z” — is a UCSB player with a high degree of basketball intelligence. His assist-to-turnover ratio of 4.69-to-1 is the second-highest in NCAA Division 1, and Harmon was honored as Big West 2014 Hustle Player of the Year.
OUR MAN AL: The Gauchos have the nation’s leading rebounder (11.6 per game) in junior center Alan “Big Al” Williams (#15). The Big West bestowed six Player of the Week awards on Big Al this season, and the conference named him the 2014 Player of the Year.
game as if it’s his last. Gaucho teammate John Green serves as his inspiration. Beset by fractures in his feet, Green sat out two full seasons. He worked out diligently, and on February 1, he ﬁnally made his debut against UC Davis. Williams recorded the most impressive double-double of his career in the game, but he said that “27 [points] and 20 [rebounds] is nothing tonight.” “The biggest thing I’ve seen in the last three years is John Green coming back,” said Coach Williams, who got choked up talking about Green’s perseverance on the radio. In practice 10 days later, Green broke his right wrist, a season-ending injury. He had waited three years to play a total of 13 minutes in two games. He still travels with the Gauchos, a reminder that their time playing a game for their school is something to be cherished.
AGAINST ALL ODDS: The Big West Women’s Tourna-
ment used to be UCSB’s playground. The Gauchos have collected 14 championships, most recently in 2012, Carlene Mitchell’s ﬁrst year as their head coach. That was “The
Year of the Improbable,” as they went into the tournament as the sixth-seeded team. Call this “The Year of the Impossible.” For the ﬁrst time in 24 years, the Gaucho women had a losing record in conference games, a really bad record of 3-13. To make it to the tournament ﬁnal, they would have to win as many games in three days as they had in the past two months. Senior guards Nicole Nesbit, Melissa Zornig, and Destini Mason provided some scoring punch, but until Vanderbilt transfer Clair Watkins became eligible in January, the Gauchos did not have a proven post player. Breakdowns at the defensive end plagued them. They were unable to hold a lead late in the second half against their nemesis Cal Poly last Saturday. Mitchell remains conﬁdent in her abilities, while doubts are brewing in the peanut gallery.“A lot of crazy things happen in March Madness,” the coach said this week.“We ﬁght hard every game. It hasn’t clicked for whatever reason. Better late than never.”
PLAYING ON: Super sophomore Amber Melgoza (38 points) and the Santa Barbara High Dons played spectacularly in defeating Lakeside, 67-43, for the CIF Southern Section AA girls’ basketball championship last Saturday. The Dons have been seeded No. in the Southern California bracket of the CIF State Division III Championships. They are assured of playing at home if they advance to the quarterﬁnals (Sat., Mar. 15) and semiﬁnals (Tue., Mar. 18). The Dons boys also were selected to compete in the state tournament after making it to the section semiﬁnals, where they lost to champion Oak Park. Their pathway consists of road games.

NON-MEAT TREATS: Backyard Bowl’s Island Bowl is just one of many vegetarian dishes worth seeking out right now.
Ladies Helm Ship at New Wine & Beer Bar
by Shannon Kelley
Healthy Eats at Adama, Alchemy Arts, and Backyard Bowls
by Joanne Howard
n California’s ever-increasing health-conscious and ecologically aware society, diners are seeking new restaurants to make a change for themselves and for the environment. And with the threat of drought still persisting through this past weekend’s downpours, it’s worth recognizing that a diet of fruit and vegetables uses far less water than one ﬁlled with dairy and meat. So whether you’re a seasoned vegan or simply looking for a way to reduce your footprint on the planet, here are three dishes to try at three of Santa Barbara’s healthiest and eco-friendly eateries.
Pumpkin-Pecan Pancakes at Adama Vegan Comfort Cuisine: With a menu that
is entirely plant-based, Adama oﬀers a safe haven for vegans as well as a unique dining experience for anyone simply interested in delicious and healthy food. Although Adama launched in May 2011, it wasn’t until about a year ago that they made the switch to a gluten-free kitchen — and they haven’t looked back since. Owner Deeahna Arrieta said the move has helped gain even more customers, 50 percent of whom have gluten-free diets. “This kind of cooking is a daily science experiment,” she said. “I’m constantly manipulating basic ingredients to make sure a dish hits that comfort spot.” In other words, when you order a quiche at Adama, you’ll get something that actually tastes like quiche, even if it is vegan and gluten free. To start your day oﬀ in that style, try Adama’s pumpkin-pecan pancakes, a crowd favorite and their best-selling dish on the breakfast menu, which is on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 9 a.m. The contrasting textures of the crispy toasted pecans and the creamy pumpkin make for a rich and warming meal. The cinnamon-pumpkin ﬂavor is even sweet enough to forgo the maple syrup if you want to keep your breakfast light.
Walnut Kale Salad at Alchemy Arts Café: As part of the Alchemy Arts Center on the
corner of Chapala Street and West Haley Street, Alchemy Café MORE shares the center’s passion for FOOD health and wellness. The center, which opened three years SEE P. 61
ago, was the dream of founder Emma Narachi, a Reiki master and craniosacral therapist who developed her healing ideas during travels in Asia. Alchemy Café prides itself on its raw, vegetarian cuisine, a rare ﬁnd in Santa Barbara, and is also Farmers Market Certiﬁed, meaning they commit 25 percent or more of their total monthly food expenditures to the Santa Barbara Certiﬁed Farmers Market Association. Said marketing manager Stevie Mason,“We have a loyal clientele who knows our passion for clean food and wants to support us.” For lunch, try the walnut kale salad with locally grown kale, toasted walnuts, and avocado, topped with sprouted crunchy quinoa, ﬁnely shredded Parmesan, and a lemon olive-oil dressing. The salad’s freshness and vibrant, bursting colors are a stirringly light option for these winter months. Clean food often tends to connote blandness but not so at Alchemy Café. The ﬂavors of this salad are as lively as its colors.
Island Bowl at Backyard Bowls: As Santa
Barbara’s quintessential beach-town eatery, Backyard Bowls combines eco-friendly business practices with nutritional powerhouse ingredients like the açaí berry and hemp to oﬀer a healthy alternative for breakfast or lunch. College friends Pete Heth and Dan Goddard developed Backyard Bowls out of “this crazy idea that we had when living in Hawai‘i, where we fell in love with açaí.” The açaí berry, valued for its high amounts of antioxidants, protein, and essential fatty acids, is the main ingredient in most of Backyard Bowl’s dishes. Their most popular menu item is the Island Bowl, which is “beginner friendly” for diners who have never eaten an açaí bowl. With a blend of açaí, banana, mango, pineapple juice, and coconut milk and topped with hemp granola, strawberries, blueberries, coconut shavings, and honey, the dish is a tropical cornucopia of juicy, sweet fruit. Though it tastes like a dessert, guests can be assured that it is packed with healthy nutrients. Joanne Howard’s longer profiles on each of these restaurants are online at independent .com/food.
ucker Huget and Jaime Heer, proprietors of Armada, Santa Barbara’s newest wine and beer bar and mercantile, are having a chuckle. I’d asked what it’s like to work in such a male-dominated industry — apparently the gender-ambiguous nature of their names combined with today’s tendency to conduct business via email leads to a lot of surprised faces when new distributors walk through the door only to spot the two young women, both 27 years old. But theirs are familiar faces to our town’s wine-loving community. Huget (from Kingston, Washington) and Heer (from San Diego) both came to Santa Barbara for college and stuck around, each landing what they initially considered “fun, part-time” jobs at Carr Winery’s downtown tasting room. The jobs ultimately lasted years, spawning relationships with producers and consumers and sparking a deep thirst for knowledge of the industry and passion for its culture. After years of dreaming, they marked their grand opening two weeks ago, at a packed event that spilled onto the courtyard (and surely had the downward-doggers at CorePower Yoga more than a little jealous). Their palates came of age on Central Coast juice, but exploring other regions is a cornerstone of what they’re doing at Armada — hence the name. Inspired by the Spanish architecture and images of explorers and conquistadores carved into the facades of San Marcos Plaza, the oﬀ–State Street courtyard between Figueroa and Anapamu where they’re situated, their oﬀerings are infused with a spirit of exploration. And beer! With a Telegraph brewer serving as consultant, they’re also stocking an extensive list of craft brews that has aﬁcionados stoked. The space itself is casual, inviting, and beautifully designed, a chic, modern spin on a coastal theme balanced by cool, industrial touches. Oﬀ the tourist-beaten path, with plenty of cozy seating and a big open bar, it’s a score for locals, some of whom are already regulars. There’s even Wi-Fi and a TV that’ll be brought out for must-see events.
QUAFFING COUPLE: Friends Jamie Heer (left) and Tucker Huget serve artisan-minded wine and beer at their new bar inside San Marcos Plaza.
“We’re all about being comfortable, not intimidating, and not too expensive,” said Heer. As one patron put it, it’s “a breath of fresh air.” Here’s some of what to expect: Matua Sauvignon Blanc: Crisp and refreshing, this herbaceous 2013 from Marlborough, New Zealand, has notes of tropical fruit and melon; bright acidity keeps the ﬁnish nice and clean. Lafage Miraflors Rosé: This mourvèdre–grenache gris 2012 blend from Provence, France, is a smooth specimen: Light and dry, the peachy drinker is slightly spicy, with melon, berry, and ﬂoral notes. Baker & Brain Pinot Noir: This silky 2011 Central Coaster tastes like cherry cobbler baked in an outdoor oven, the fruit balanced with hints of baking spices, leather, and earth: dangerously drinkable. St. Archer Blonde Ale: The Kölsch style leaves nowhere to hide, which is just ﬁne in the case of this light ale out of San Diego. With notes of citrus and grass and a mild hoppiness, this beer is made for drinking. Orval Trappist Ale: It’s like eating an apricot on a forest ﬂoor, we determined. (Yes, we’d been drinking.) This Belgian brew is equal parts ﬂoral and funky on the nose, earthy, and appropriately bitter in the mouth, with lots of carbonation. Chimay fans will be all over it. Hercule Stout: It’s a classic stout and looks it; sipping reveals it’s relatively light bodied and not overly creamy. With notes of chocolate, coﬀee, and dark fruit, this needs to be poured over a scoop of vanilla ice cream and turned into a Beer Float. Immediately.

WEST SIDE STORY COMES TO THE GRANADA
ichelle Alves was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and when she steps onto the Granada stage in the role of Anita in West Side Story this week, the audience will be seeing a performer who shares not only the background of her character but also her character’s dream. “I’ve wanted to play this role since I was 5 years old,” Alves said via phone last week, “and in order to pursue it, I had to leave my family and come to America, as well, so I really identify with Anita.” For those who don’t know every word, note, and dance move of this classic musical that’s based on Romeo and Juliet, Anita is the best friend of Maria, the Juliet ﬁgure: and her boyfriend Bernardo, who is Maria’s brother, plays a variation of Shakespeare’s character Tybalt. In other words, Anita bears some of the hardest blows in West Side Story, but she’s sassy, clever, and irrepressible, as well. “Anita is
ST. VINCENT ST. VINCENT
The last time we caught up with St. Vincent’s Annie Clark, she was standing front and center at the Arlington Theatre alongside former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, shredding in support of the pair’s saxed-up 2012 collaboration, Love This Giant. While her latest self-titled oﬀering doesn’t boast quite the herky-jerky oddity of that record, it’s immediately apparent that Clark took something away from the Byrne experience. Her tightly knit and expertly coiled riﬀs are at an all-time best here. On “Rattlesnake,” the guitars are
sarcastic but lovable,” says Alves.“She’s a powerful woman, full of love and passion, and she travels a big journey in the course of the show, all the way from very high spirits in Act One to great suﬀering in Act Two.” This is Alves’s second national tour of West Side Story; she’ll be joined onstage by 32 other cast members this TuesdayWednesday, March 18-19. West Side Story occupies a special place in the pantheon of Broadway musicals for several reasons. To start with, the original creative team included composer Leonard Bernstein, playwright Arthur Laurents, lyricist Stephen Sondheim, and choreographer Jerome Robbins. With the songs, Bernstein and Sondheim achieved something that’s more often imagined than accomplished — a blend of classical, jazz, and Broadway that’s edgy and immensely popular. Several, including Anita’s big number,“America,” have taken on lives of their own, and, whether it’s eﬀected to emulate a fuzzy synth; for “Birth in Reverse,” they provide a power-saw-like backbone to lilting lines about technology’s vise grip. But in between Clark’s now-signature jarring and spazzy twists, she makes a concerted eﬀort to keep things, well, kind of groovy. It would be a stretch to call St. Vincent Clark’s “dance record,” but it’s certainly the closest she’s come yet. Take “Huey Newton,” which starts out as a disco-esque slow-burner before making a sharp 180-degree turn around the two-and-a-half-minute mark. From there, Clark comes out, grinding guitars a-blazing, her voice at once biting and wide-eyed, spiteful and gamine. Of course, therein lies Clark’s secret weapon: She’s a peculiar mix of feminine ingénue and power-stancing rock god-
IN AMERICA: Michelle Alves as Anita leads her West Side girlfriends in a song about their journey from San Juan to New York.
“Tonight,”“I Feel Pretty,”“Something’s Coming,” or even “Gee, Oﬃcer Krupke,” no high school musical revue would be complete without at least one of them. But the real revolutionary appeal of the show lies deeper than that, at the magic level of group chemistry. Both Robbins and Laurents rose to the occasion, producing a show that’s as rich in thought-provoking drama and unforgettable dances as it is in superb songs. Put the three elements together in equal parts, and you’ve got what Alves simply described as “a masterpiece.” If you’re a Broadway hound, don’t miss this one, and if you’ve never seen a Broadway musical, West Side Story is the perfect introduction to the form.

ALL SHOOK DOWN: Who says there’s no parking in “East Boston, MA”?
It takes a big heart to love the crappy, unkempt corners of any region, from the ugly/beautiful disarray of abandoned furniture to the unpromising darkness of empty parking lots. It takes an even bigger one to love the garbage-strewn non-places of New England, which is currently home oﬃce to so much of small-town America that’s past its useful life and was never pretty to begin with. Sure, they’ve got lighthouses in Maine, boats still sail in Newport Harbor, and the trees in Vermont turn color in the fall, but have you ever been to Lynn? To put it in an idiom that any experienced New Englander ought to recognize, it blows. Yet the seemingly thankless task of capturing all this senseless doo-doo has found its master in Larry Mills, and his new show at Art Resources on East Haley Street is packed with riveting recent photos of these best-forgotten places. Here is a cemetery that’s next-door to a Hooters; there is a curdled river, its banks littered with old tires. And is it just me, or is that rusty American car sitting in the casino parking lot just begging for GETS LOST IN NEW ENGLAND somebody to drive it oﬀ the nearest cliﬀ? Moving to Massachusetts and New Hampshire for two years, where the detritus of a failed industrial economy surrounded him, Mills longed to escape the glum monotony of these grimy New England suburbs. Yet a weird fascination with how very not nice these nowhere lands still are and his keen photographer’s eye kept him looking at what was in front of him. These images are the result. Like director David O. Russell, who shot American Hustle in Worcester, Massachusetts, Mills found that certain spots in New England, circa 2013, not only make a believable substitute for 1970s New Jersey but also convey something ineﬀable and true about the way we live now. Apparently New Jersey doesn’t look bad enough anymore, but Worcester nails it. Mills nails it, too, with just the right touch of redemption shining through these unforgiving glimpses of “lost” America. I’m over here … two years of getting lost in New England is at Art Resources ( E. Haley St.) through Saturday, March 29. A closing reception will be held from 5-8 p.m. on March 29.

ike an uncanny slot-machine triple, Michael Frayn’s Noises Oﬀ ! has appeared in three local productions in the past six months: Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre in October; Rubicon Theatre Company in February; and now The Theatre Group at Santa Barbara City College. If tendencies on the South Coast are any indication of trends at large, then the 80-year-old English playwright continues to earn more than a few pounds from this critically acclaimed frenetic farce. And there are a couple of reasons why: First, there are the laughs — which were abundantly evident at this SBCC matinee performance. Done right, this is a very funny show. Secondly, I’m guessing there may be a thespian machismo factor; directors and actors want to test their mettle against this notoriously diﬃcult show the way climbers take on Kilimanjaro. And as such, probably every one of them has despaired a week before opening night: “What have I gotten into?!” But no one at SBCC seems to be asking the question any longer, judging from the aplomb and polish of this opening weekend performance. Although Circle Bar B rustled up some inventive adaptation for playing Noises Oﬀ ! on a single level (due to its barn-theater limitations), there simply is no way to experience the full madness of this play except with a double-story set, where sight lines can be blocked vertically. Fortunately, SBCC has the resources, venue, and talent (namely scenic designer Patricia Frank) to do this one up right. The gist of Noises Oﬀ ! is a play-within-a-play, a one-act sex farce called Nothing On, which is repeated on three occasions: ﬁrst, the technical rehearsal; next, an actual performance a month later; and ﬁnally, a performance near the end of the run. The fun is that with every repetition, there is a new overlay of complexity, as the relationships between the actors heat up and devolve. The play is masterfully turned inside out in the second act, when the whole thing is watched from backstage, with ever-accelerating pantomime and slapstick among the oﬀstage actors. The whole thing holds together like gears of a watch, every quick action coordinated tightly with every other. Polly Firestone Walker is new to the SBCC stage, making her debut as Belinda, an actress with a mediating personality. Sean Jackson is excellent as the ﬂustered and jealous Garry. Raymond Wallenthin returns to the Garvin as the dim and vulnerable Freddy. Janina Mason plays the self-involved, underwearclad Brooke. Jenna Scanlon is Poppy, the emotionally fragile assistant stage manager. Ed Lee is Tim, the overworked stage manager. Jay Carlander is the short-tempered and caustic director, Lloyd. Ann Dusenberry does ﬁne work with the demanding role of Dotty and nails the British accent — a necessity for the role. And Jon Koons plays the drink-prone and hard-of-hearing Selsdon. If you like the near-misses of revolving-door farce, then Noises Oﬀ ! will double your fun by giving you both sides at once. But a word of advice: Avoid ■ sardines for lunch.

ANAT COHEN AND THE JOY OF JAZZ Newport Festival Celebrates 60 Years
JIMMY AND DENA KATZ
by Tom Jacobs
he jazz world has changed a lot in the 60 years since the Newport Jazz Festival was founded. For one thing, this American art form has spread around the world, creating both fans and artists in unlikely places. Case in point: Israeli-born clarinetist and saxophonist Anat Cohen. She is the musical director of the Newport Jazz Festival: Now band, a world-class ensemble that also includes trumpeter Randy Brecker, guitarist Mark Whitﬁeld, and pianist Peter Martin. The group performs on Friday, March 14, at the Lobero Theatre. We recently chatted with Cohen about her approach to musicmaking in a telephone interview from her Brooklyn home.
You are the tour’s musical director. With a group of this level, what exactly does that mean? I don’t know! When you have a group of professionals who have diﬀerent opinions, you need somebody to make the ﬁnal call. It’s quite an eclectic group and very versatile. We can go in many directions. I asked everybody to bring some original music. They call the group Newport Now which means there’s a “now” part — what’s happening in jazz today. People respect the tradition of this music, and they build on it. That’s what jazz has always been. How, as an Israeli, did you get into jazz? My initial training was on the keyboard — mainly the great American songbook. In junior high, during the day I was a classical clarinetist, but after school I played New Orleans jazz and big-band music. When I got into the high school for the arts, they had just started a jazz major, so I decided to go for it and focused on the saxophone. After [a stint in] the military, I went to the Berklee College of Music [in Boston]. I’ve been here almost 20 years now. I gather Berklee was a seminal experience for you. It was incredible. There were so many people just like me — people who had come from all over the world because they love jazz. I met people from Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina — people who loved jazz, but also the rhythms of their own country, and were creating combinations. This gave me a whole new understanding. Did you similarly reach back into your own roots as part of your jazz studies? For me, going back to play the clarinet felt like going back home. Some melodies come to me much more naturally on the clarinet. I focused on the saxophone ever since high school. It wasn’t until my album Poetica, which I recorded in 2006, that I went back to the clarinet. It felt like it was waiting for me! I always
NOW HEAR THIS: The Newport Jazz Festival’s Now 60 band is (from left) Karrin Allyson, Clarence Penn, Larry Grenadier, Anat Cohen, Mark Whitfield, Randy Brecker, and Peter Martin. felt I couldn’t ﬁnd a place for me to play clarinet [in a jazz ensemble]. People would make a face when I said I wanted to play it. I got my conﬁdence back on the clarinet playing Brazilian choros and then started to incorporate it with other kinds of music. It wasn’t my plan; it just happened. It’s kind of cool that you rediscovered your own roots by playing music from a different culture. Will you be playing both instruments on this tour? Yes. They are both expressive, but I feel more like myself when I play the clarinet. When I play the tenor saxophone — the history of that instrument in jazz is so long, strong, and heavy.
It weighs on you? Yeah. Speaking of emotional burdens, is it still awkward being a woman in jazz? Or is it no longer that much of an issue? I assume you’re the only woman on the bandstand much of the time. I am. It’s really nice that [vocalist] Karrin Allyson will be on this tour. It’ll be great having her to hang out with in the dressing room! There are times you get an attitude from random individuals in the business. Some people are just narrow-minded. They live in fear. They make remarks here and there. But in general, there is more and more tolerance. It’s getting to be more of a norm to have women playing. I’m working hard in that department, too! And now that I travel as a bandleader, people are less likely to make [sexist] remarks. I’m the headliner, so they are more likely to behave. So how do you react to such remarks? Do you let them slide? I turn around, take a deep breath, and let it pass. I prefer to solve conﬂict with kindness. That’s my ﬁrst approach. If that doesn’t work, there’s always the alternative. I’m from Israel. I can tell a person what I think if I have to! Anat Cohen takes the stage with the Newport Jazz Festival: Now 60 band on Friday, March 14, at 8 p.m. at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.). For tickets and info, call 963-0761 or visit lobero.com.

News from the Jazz Spring, Continuing night at the Lobero, the stars aligned and poetic justice prevailed, as reedman Charles Lloyd and drummer allies Zakir Hussain and Eric Harland mounted a long-awaited return of Sangam to the jazz-ambience-blessed room where it was born a decade earlier. Montecitan Lloyd has played this room countless times, in assorted contexts, but something special transpired in 2004 when he put this FULL CIRCLE: Charles Lloyd special, open-ended trio together returned to the Lobero stage on in tender tribute to Lloyd’s late Saturday night as one-third of the drummer compadre Billy Higgins. open-ended jazz trio Sangam. Higgins, who died in 2001, spent the last few years of his life in close artistic accord with Lloyd and played with the saxist in the Lobero a few times, including marching up and down the aisles, in infectious, interactive New Orleans-ian style. Sangam’s 2004 Lobero night went “viral” and global when a recording of the show, captured by Santa Barbara Sound Design’s Dom Camardella, was released on ECM, setting the template for a presumed one-oﬀ project that has been an international crowd-pleaser now for 10 years. In the broader sense, the relatively short but also musically expansive Sangam evening was an aﬃrming high sign amid an unusually dense and inspiring Jazz at the Lobero series, the third inspired jazz show in as many weeks — following the remarkable Spring Quartet and Pat Metheny’s Unity Group. To boot, there are a few more strong jazz nights to come, including Friday’s Newport Now road show (see page 49), Tierney Sutton’s Joni Mitchell tribute on March 22, premier jazz violinist Regina Carter on April 22, Branford Marsalis on May 7, and Bill Frisell’s unique John Lennon tribute on May 16. The Lobero has more than stepped up to the plate in this, its post-restoration hiatus, to make up for lost time and ﬁll the formerly sagging jazz dance card in town. For my money, despite the many values and virtues of Lloyd and Metheny’s concerts, the most exciting evening came ﬁrst, with the ear- and mind-opening Spring Quartet. To hear a virtually brand-new band featuring some of jazz’s most prized voices — visionary drummer Jack DeJohnette, tenor sax master Joe Lovano, young multitalented wizard bassist/vocalist Esperanza Spalding, and newcomer worthy of further listening, pianist Leo Genovese — performing originals (and — original — originals) and allowing plenty of space for freely spontaneous invention, in the moment in this hallowed house, epitomized what makes jazz America’s great music. Newport Jazz Festival: Now 60, with a truly slouch-less membership of potent clarinetist Anat Cohen, trumpeter Randy Brecker, vocalist Karrin Allyson, pianist Peter Martin, bassist Larry Grenadier, and drummer Clarence Penn, represents a diﬀerent kind of all-star confabbing, the subculture of road shows put together under the aegis of an important jazz festival. Santa Barbara has beneﬁted from such groups connected with the Monterey Jazz Festival, and, via the San Francisco Jazz Festival, the SFJAZZ Collective. The venerable East Coast fest, which began and is again based in Newport, was founded by George Wein, who has steered prior Newport groups through Santa Barbara — including those featuring Cedar Walton and Lovano in the past dozen years. My vote for one 2014 Local Hero, jazz division: José Lobero.
THE KIDS WILL BE ALRIGHT: Certainly a high point of 2013’s otherwise lean jazz season in Santa Barbara came in the form of Wynton Marsalis and his mighty, and nattily dressed, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, in concert at the Granada Theatre last March. Given his many visits to Santa Barbara over the years, Marsalis seems to like our paradisiacal town, and tab-paying patrons and audiences return the love. But when the great big band swings (sorry) through town next week, the public access will be quite limited — to a small gathering in a special UCSB Arts & Lectures fundraiser in a Montecito estate on Tuesday and a special Wednesday-morning show at the Arlington, for kids only — 2,000 of ’em. With shows like this, and the continued focus of the Lobero, the future of jazz is looking brighter by the second.

ENDGAME: From hip-hop inspiration to doomsday imagery, Little Wings’ latest album is the most epic to date. Kyle Field brings the project to SOhO on March 19.
SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST by Aly Comingore
THE END IS NEAR: If you’re at all familiar with Little Wings’ music, you
already get the appeal. To know Kyle Field is to love him and his quirky, sparse, and often proliﬁc approach to songwriting. A longtime staple of the California folk scene, Field’s Little Wings project has caught the ear of plenty of biggernamed notables; Feist, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, and Devendra Banhart have all sung his praises. But speaking to Field in anticipation of his upcoming headlining gig at SOhO, his dreams of non-grandeur are at the forefront of his mind. “I like the quality and the mentality that’s there before a band gains worldwide super-status, like R.E.M. pre-1988,” he said. “In a sense, I’m constantly trying to preserve that phase for the life of my band, this idea that we’re not trying to grow any bigger than we are.” An avid painter, surfer, and newly minted actor (he recently starred in a short ﬁlm that comes out later this year), Field is the quintessential creative spirit; his music is a beautifully restrained exercise in the singer/ songwriter format. If we’re talking comparables, Little Wings aligns itself with the work of contemporaries like Bill Callahan and Damien Jurado; it’s nuanced, detailed, and lush, but the songs are built with plenty of room to breathe. While he works primarily in the short-album format, Field’s latest as Little Wings, LAST, is anything but succinct. A 16-track double album on which Field plays every instrument, LAST is contemplative, grandiose, and at least a little bit conceptual in its making. “I started thinking about what the last record would be like,” he explained. “As far as the tone, it felt like I was sharing maybe more than I had in the past, like if it was your last chance to show and tell, there would be this color and that color that you hadn’t shared before.” In 2012, at the height of the Mayan calendar clamor, Field started writing with the idea of the apocalypse in mind. And listening to LAST, this album feels a bit darker, a bit more haunting, and a bit showier than past Little Wings records, which Field chalks up at least in part to the music he was consuming at the time. “I was listening to a lot of rap, and I think there’s something about that music that can soundtrack your conﬁdence,” he said. As such, the record brims with plenty of big, dramatic moments and doomsday imagery. “I started thinking about what humanity needed to see, like the sun setting on the horizon,” Field recalled.“There’s this sad element to the whole thing, but it was also my version of an intense situation. This was the last record, so no holds barred. We’re all going to perish because the earth is ending, so it’s time to contemplate those realities. How deep is the sea? How wide is the ocean?” So now, with the end of the world behind us, we’re left to wonder: Is this the end of Little Wings? While Field won’t say one way or the other, my intuition tells me Wednesday’s show won’t be the last we see of him. “[The record] is a little bit like those historical reenactments,” he laughed. “It gave me more options, maybe to reinvent or change my name, or just to touch on the end of something.” Well, then, here’s to new beginnings. Little Wings plays SOhO Restaurant & Music Club ( State St.) on Wednesday, March 19, at 8 p.m. with Toy Shop Ghost, little big here, and Spar■ row’s Gate. For info, call 962-7776 or visit sohosb.com.

The Great Beauty. Toni Servillo, Sabrina Ferilli, and Carlo Verdone star in a film written by Paolo Sorrentino and Umberto Contarello and directed by Sorrentino. Reviewed by Josef Woodard
or the past several weeks, I have uttered the phrase “The Great Beauty” countless times, usually in answer to the still-pressing question, “So what was your favorite ﬁlm at the ﬁlm festival this year?” Italian director Paolo (Il Divo) Sorrentino, who was in town with his stunningly ﬁne ﬁlm during the Santa Barbara International FINDING FULFILLMENT: Italian Director Paulo Film Festival, recently went on to nab the best Sorrentino writes and directs the Oscar-winning film Foreign Film Oscar, a category often opting for The Great Beauty, where Jep Gambardella (Toni feel-good and/or sentimental fare.

✯ 300: Rise of an Empire
(102 mins.; R: strong sustained sequences of stylized bloody violence throughout, a sex scene, nudity, some langauge)
Students and fans of history and mythology may ﬁnd some morsels of interest to chew on in : Rise of an Empire, which rides entertainingly roughshod over the story of a ﬁctionalized battle, mostly in the Aegean Sea, between the Persians and Greeks. But let’s be honest: This sort-of sequel to 2006’s — a k a the Spartan underdog’s triumph tale — is primarily aimed at the heart of the young-ish male demographic, where fans of artful blades ’n’ blood choreography, computer gaming excess, and occasional female wiles meet. All of those elements do meet here, with the similar stylized eﬀect of animation mixed with live, ﬂeshy buckets o’ bloody visuals. At times the violence is simultaneously vivid and surreal, with slow-mo blood-letting and battles alternating with accelerated action; it’s both in your face and ﬁlm fake. Interestingly, director Noam Murro’s new ﬁlm, with cowriter Zack Snyder’s screenplay based on Frank Miller’s forthcoming graphic novel, features two powerful, kick-ass women characters, and a fairly literate scripting, amid all the warsome mayhem. But the real centerpieces of this war saga are Artemisia (Eva Green) and her handsome, bearded nemesis, who lock horns in a disarming sexual encounter that foreshadows a later sword ﬁght with none-too-subtle carnal overtones, right down to the last invasive gesture. You get the sense that the ﬁlmmakers take their work and their characters seriously, while also calculating just how much sex, violence, and pop culture they can get away with. That balancing act continues to the very end, when tides of ancient history segue into end credits featuring the burly howl of Ozzy Osbourne singing “War Pigs” with his jolly thunkrock combo Black Sabbath.

An air marshal (Liam Neeson) is called upon during a transatlantic ﬂight when he receives a series of text messages demanding that the airline transfer money into an oﬀshore account. In the end, it’s all a bit pulpy, but Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra shrewdly takes advantage of the claustrophobic quarters, creating an eﬀective pressure-cooker situation.

✯ Philomena (98 mins.; PG-13: some strong language, thematic elements, sexual references) A journalist picks up a story about an older woman searching for her son, who was taken from her decades ago after she was forced into a convent.

Plaza de Oro Son of God (138 mins.; PG-13: intense and bloody depiction of the Crucifixion, some sequences of violence)
Diogo Morgado takes on the role of Jesus in this epic tale of the great leader’s birth, cruciﬁxion, and resurrection.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF MARCH LIBRA
ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): “There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one.” So says a character in Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel The Unconsoled. At this juncture in your life story, Aries, it might be healing for you to make a similar declaration. Now is an excellent moment to say a ﬁnal goodbye to plot twists that you wished would have happened but never did. To do so will free up stuck energy that will then become available for future projects. You may even awaken to exciting possibilities you haven’t imagined yet.
astronauts ﬁrst walked on the lunar surface, travelers in airports and train stations had to carry and drag wheelless containers full of their belongings. I suspect that a comparable out-of-sequence thing may be going on in your own life, Cancerian. In some ways you are totally up-to-date, and in other ways you are lagging behind. Now would be a good time to identify any discrepancies and start correcting them. Metaphorically speaking, I’d love you to have rolling luggage by the next time you take a journey.
(Apr. 20 - May 20): In May 2011, two Nepali men reached the top of Mt. Everest after a six-week climb. Lakpa Tsheri Sherpa and Sano Babu Sunuwar had prepared an unprecedented way to get back down oﬀ the mountain. Strapping themselves to a single parachute, they leaped oﬀ and paraglided for 45 minutes, landing near a Sherpa village thousands of feet below the summit. I suggest you look around for a metaphorical version of a shortcut like that, Taurus. Don’t do the next part of the journey the same way you did the previous phase. Take a more direct route. Enjoy an alternate adventure. Give yourself a fresh challenge.
(July 23 - Aug. 22): Have you ever heard of the Sasquatch, also known as bigfoot? You know, one of those big, hairy, humanoid beasts that walks upright and lives in dense forests? Scientists assure us that there is no such thing. But then they used to say the same thing about the platypus. It was a myth, they declared — a ﬁgment of explorers’ vivid imaginations. A duck-billed, egg-laying mammal simply could not exist. When the respected British zoologist George Shaw claimed there was indeed such a creature, he was mocked by his contemporaries. Eventually, though, the truth emerged and Shaw was vindicated. I suspect that you Leos will soon experience an event akin to the discovery and conﬁrmation that the platypus is real.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Seeking wisdom and chasing after pleasure are polar opposites, right? You must devote yourself to either one or the other, correct? You can be an enlightened servant of the greater good or else an exuberant hedonist in quest of joy, but not both. True? No. No. No. False. Wrong. Here’s the bigger truth: Now and then, grace periods come along when you can become smarter and kinder by exploring the mysteries of feeling really good. Can you guess when the next of these grace periods will arrive for you, Gemini? Here’s the answer: It’s here now!
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Kyoka is a Japanese word that means a ﬂower reﬂected in a mirror. I suggest you use it as a metaphor to help you understand what’s happening in your life right now. Here are some clues to jumpstart your ruminations. Are you more focused on the image of what you love than on what you love? If so, is there anything wrong with that, or is it perfectly ﬁne? Are you more interested in ephemeral beauty that you can admire from afar than in tangible beauty you can actually touch? If so, is there anything wrong with that, or is it perfectly ﬁne? Should you turn away from a dreamy surrogate and turn toward the real thing? If so, why?
CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Humans walked on the moon before anyone ever had the simple idea to put wheels on suitcases. Unbelievable, right? Until 1972, three years after
(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): A British researcher poured 300 million facts into a computer program designed to determine the most boring day in history. The winner was April 11, 1954. It was selected because almost nothing important happened except an election in Belgium. I’m wondering if you Libras might reach that level of blah sometime soon. The astrological omens suggest it’s a possibility. And frankly, I hope that’s exactly what happens. You need a break from high adventure and agitated activity. You would beneﬁt from indulging in some downtime that allowed you to luxuriate in silence and stasis. The time has come to recharge your psychic batteries.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): You won’t be the recipient of good luck in the coming days. Nor will you experience bad luck or dumb luck or weird luck. No, Scorpio. The serendipitous slew of synchronicities that will slip and slide into your sphere requires a new word, which I have coined for this occasion. That word is “shluck.” Shluck is a cracked yet plucky sort of backwards luck that provides you with an abundance of curious slack. Shluck slings your way a series of happy accidents and curious coincidences that give you experiences you didn’t even realize you needed. To take maximum advantage of shluck’s beneﬁts, you have to dispense with your agendas and drop your expectations.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): In the old fairy tale “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,” the poor woodcutter Ali Baba is collecting ﬁrewood in the forest when he spies a gang of thieves bragging about their exploits. Observing them from a hiding place, he hears them chant a phrase,“open sesame.” This magically unseals the opening to a cave that happens to be full of their stolen treasure. Later, when the thieves have departed, Ali Baba goes to the cave and says “open sesame” himself. The hocus-pocus works. He slips into the cave and steals a bag of gold from the robbers’ plunder. This story has resemblances to an adventure you could enjoy sometime soon, Sagittarius.

I suspect you may discover your own version of “open sesame.” It will give you access to a less literal and more legitimate bounty.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Your ability to heal rifts and bridge gaps is unusually high. You could connect seemingly irreconcilable elements and forge apparently impossible links. Former allies who have become estranged might be moved to bond again through your compassionate intervention. I’m not promising amazingly miraculous feats of uniﬁcation, but I’m not ruling them out, either. You have a sixth sense about how to create interesting mixtures by applying just the right amount of pressure and oﬀering just the right kind of tenderness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): My friend Harry said he wanted to teach me to play golf. “Are you kidding?” I asked him incredulously.“The dullest game on the planet?” He tried to convince me that it would provide lots of interesting metaphors I could use in writing horoscopes. “Name one,” I challenged him. He told me that “Volkswagen” is a slang term that describes what happens when a golfer makes an awkward shot that nevertheless turns out to be quite good.“Hmmm,” I replied.“That is exactly the theme I have decided on for the Aquarius horoscope.”
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Do you remember being in your mother’s womb? Probably not. But here’s what I know about that time: In the ﬁrst few weeks after you were conceived, your body grew at a very rapid rate. Once you were born, if you had continued to expand and develop with that much vigor, you would literally have grown to be as big as a mountain by now. So let’s be thankful you slowed down. But I do want to sound an alert and let you know that you are currently in a growth spurt with some metaphorical resemblances to that original eruption. It’s basically a good thing. Just be aware that you may experience growing pains. Homework: Name your greatest unnecessary taboo and how you would violate it if it didn’t hurt anyone. Freewillastrology.com.

Wine of the Week
With the brief recent rainstorm (that was our winter, right?) quickly giving way to summery sunshine days, it’s about time to opt for that pink wine in your fridge. But rather than go for those deeper hued styles that dominate California shelves, try this paler version from Archium Cellars, whose grenache‑based rosé takes its cues from those coppery, easy‑slurping wines of Provence, France. That means a delicate floral nose, soft mouthfeel, noticeable citrus fruit, and utter drinkability, especially with a loaf of bread and brick of cheese on a warm spring afternoon. Expect other good things from the winemaking team of Ian Sergy and Zach Jarosz, who are focused on making Rhône wines out of their facility in Buellton and will be pouring at the upcoming California Garagistes: Southern Exposure event on March 29.

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.
