A recent transplant to Santa Barbara, our arts contributor Mitchell Kriegman, who this week explores Carl Jung’s long-hidden The Red Book, has been busy writing books himself. His novel Being Audrey Hepburn, about a girl who gets through her crummy life by watching Audrey Hepburn movies, arrives in bookstores in September. A second novel — Things I Can’t Explain, which finds the title character from Clarissa Explains It All (one of Kriegman’s Nickelodeon hits) facing life at 26 — comes out the following summer. Kriegman began his career as a performance artist, performing in the dark in a show titled An Evening of Stories and Tricks You Won’t See Anywhere.

Rock On, Goleta Beach Supes to Ask Coastal Commission to Permit Revetments

AT LONG LAST: After much speculation about what the future of Goleta Beach would hold, the supervisors voted 5-0 Tuesday to request a permit for the current rock revetments. Janet Wolf (below) — supervisor of the district in which the beach is located — spearheaded the board’s plan.



fter discussing everything they could do for Goleta Beach Park, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to do only one thing: ask the Coastal Commission to permit the rock revetments. The presence of the rocks — some were installed legally, some illegally, and some with now-expired emergency permits — has long divided the community, with rock supporters maintaining that the revetments protect the lawn and its amenities but environmental groups just as vehemently saying the rocks only protect the park at the expense of the beach, making for a loss of sand and a permanent bluff over time. Tuesday’s meeting was no different, with supporters on both sides — although the ratio skewed toward the rock-favoring representatives of Friends of Goleta Beach and the City of Goleta over the removal-favoring Environmental Defense Center (EDC) and Surfrider Foundation — packing the boardroom. The project before the supervisors Tuesday was the latest in the years-long effort by the county to address the popular beach’s future — it attracts 1.5 million visitors annually — which is believed to be jeopardized by climate change and projected sea-level rise. After more than two hours of staff presentations and public testimony from approximately 40 speakers, nd District Supervisor Janet Wolf, in whose district the park lies, took the lead. “My commitment to the long-term sustainability should go without saying,” she said, declaring there has been “far too much rhetoric, political theater, legal threats, and personal threats” surrounding the issue. She continued, noting the board’s approval in recent years of replacing the nearby 40-year-old sewer lift station and the park’s bridge and denying a motion for parking fees. No matter people’s position on what’s best for Goleta Beach — keeping the rocks or removing them, or some hybrid plan — Wolf said her constituents are “desirous of some certainty” and that her goal on Tuesday was “to attempt to bring some measure of 10


march 20, 2014

closure” to the matter by requesting a permit for the 1,200 feet of rocks and nothing more. “I know this alternative is one that may come as a surprise to many and a disappointment to some,” she said. The option chosen, known in Goleta Beach Park project parlance as Alternative , was one of seven the board could have forwarded to the Coastal Commission. The most controversial among them was the project’s environmental-study–recommended “managed retreat” scheme, which would have seen the removal of the 1,200 feet of rocks, the loss (and later potential relocation) of more than 100 parking spots, the transplantation of gas and water lines and the Highway –adjacent bike path, and the damage to nearly three acres of the grassy park for the benefit of the sandy beach.

Four of the other choices involved simply removing the rocks, removing them but installing a wave-energy-deflecting cobble berm, keeping the rocks but moving them park-ward over time, and — in the plan supported by Friends of Goleta Beach and the City of Goleta — retaining the rocks in place for 20 years while other protective measures, such as a cobble berm and Canary Island date palm trees, were analyzed. (The seventh option would have combined aspects of the other six proposals.) The “managed retreat” plan would have cost the county more than $4 million, and the most expensive measure would have cost nearly $23 million. To keep the rocks will cost nothing.

“It seems like a three-time winner to me,” said rd District Supervisor Doreen Farr after quickly seconding Wolf’s proposal. Farr, acknowledging the “passion” evoked by the issue, explained her vote for keeping the rocks as one based on what’s best for visitors, the environment, and the county’s finances. Supervisors Salud Carbajal, Steve Lavagnino, and Peter Adam all concurred but declined to say much. Those who did say much included representatives from the City of Goleta, which has long voiced its support for retaining the rocks and last week threatened the county with legal action over its handling of the project’s process. Councilmember Roger Aceves, who is challenging Wolf for her seat in the June primary and announced his candidacy in September at the beach, said that people want the park and its amenities to be protected.“It’s not about the beach; it’s about the park,” he said.“That’s what 1.5 million people per year expect, for the park to be saved.” Aceves also addressed several supervisors individually, asking Carbajal and Farr about the protections in their districts. To Adam, Aceves mentioned the millions of dollars the other plans would cost, possibly to the financial detriment of maintaining county-owned roads, buildings, and parks — a cause Adam is taking to the June ballot in Measure M. “If we retain the rocks, we will lose the beach,” countered Brian Trautwein of the EDC. “We’ve done soul-searching,” he continued, saying the EDC were willing to give up the “managed retreat” plan. The EDC’s “middle of the road” approach would have involved installing the aforementioned cobble berm but removing the rocks and some parking spots and relocating the utility lines. Farr challenged Trautwein on whether the Coastal Commission would approve a cobble berm. Whether the Coastal Commission will approve a permit for the rocks remains to be seen. If they do, the decision will head back to the County Planning Commission, whose say will be final unless appealed to either the supervisors or the Coastal Commission. ■



news briefs LAW & DISORDER

The criminal elder-abuse case against Rosemary Baugh was suspended 3/17 to allow two psychiatrists to evaluate her for competency after she was admitted into the county’s inpatient Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF) last week. She had pleaded guilty in January to charges of financial elder abuse and perjury. Baugh’s sentencing has been scheduled and postponed several times after a judge said her plea deal was too lenient and transferred the case. In 2011, Baugh became the caretaker for an 80-year-old man who suffers from dementia. Over the course of 18 months, she stole approximately $700,000 from him. The UCSB Police Department has released its report on the confrontation between Professor Mireille Miller-Young and a group of anti-abortion activists who call themselves the Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. In the report, MillerYoung, who is pregnant, said she was “triggered” by the graphic images of aborted fetuses on the large posters and had a “moral right” to grab and destroy one of the posters to protect herself and her students from the upsetting photographs. She likened her actions to those of a “conscientious objector.” The report was forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office for possible prosecution. Read the full story at A hiker died on Cold Spring Trail this week as he attempted to get help for his female companion after they both suffered serious injuries in a fall. Authorities said 22-year-old Brenden Vega and 22-year-old Saylor Guilliams, both from Ventura, set out on the trail at around 4 p.m. on 3/16 and fell approximately 45 minutes later. Guilliams suffered two broken ankles and a broken wrist, and Vega sustained a severe arm injury. After calling for help for several hours, Vega left Guilliams to seek help but soon fell off a rocky ledge and was killed. Vega’s body was found by hikers the next morning; Guilliams was found in the late afternoon and airlifted to Cottage Hospital, where she’s recovering from her injuries. Lompoc resident Kuriyan Summers-Dickinson, who allegedly stabbed a man in the stomach in Isla Vista last weekend, had his charges reduced from attempted murder to assault with a deadly weapon and infliction of great bodily injury. He pleaded not guilty to the charges this week, but his bail was increased to $110,000. If convicted, Summers-Dickinson faces up to seven years in prison. The victim, a 20-year-old Rhode Island resident in town visiting his brother for the weekend, was admitted to Cottage Hospital in critical condition but has since been stabilized.

CITY After a series of leadership changes and tragedies at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum in recent years — including the death in April 2012 of then-director David Bisol — a new executive director was named this week after an extensive nationwide search involving more than 80 candidates.

The Santa Barbara Zoo is keeping its fingers crossed that its newest addition, a four-pound male giant anteater born 3/1, stays hardy and healthy. “The prognosis for the little guy is good, but still somewhat guarded,” said Sheri Horiszny, the zoo’s director of animal programs. “Giant anteater pups have a 50 percent mortality rate in the first three months of life, and he did not get the valuable colostrum from his mother’s first milk for added immune support.” The pup — which was rejected by its mother, is being hand-raised and won’t be on public view for several months — is the 26th giant anteater born at the zoo since 1975.

COUNTY The supervisors allocated an extra $950,000 to the contract between the county’s Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services


Santa Barbara police have rearrested a man accused of a host of sex crimes after he allegedly violated court orders meant to keep him away from his alleged victims and their homes. Richard Box, 69, was taken into custody at Brophy Bros. at noon on Friday and is being held in County Jail on $1 million bail. Box is accused of raping his wife and sexually assaulting his stepdaughter — both of whom are from Thailand and lived with him on the Mesa — as well as molesting a 13-year-old girl who lives with her family in a Long Beach apartment complex Box used to own. According to police, Box violated his Long Beach–related restraining order on January 24 and the Santa Barbara one on February 15; both mandated that Box stay at least 500 yards away from the victims and their residences. When detectives approached Box at Brophy Bros., he attempted to hand his cell phone to the man he was eating lunch with, allegedly afraid that the GPS records would reveal his breaking of the orders. Box’s attorney, Steve Balash, who has maintained Box’s wife is mentally unstable and cannot be trusted, could not be reached for comment. Box was originally arrested in December but was soon released on $2 million bail after a group of supporters donated the necessary funds to post his bond. The supporters have declined multiple requests for interviews. Before Box posted bail, prosecutor Paula Waldman had argued that the amount should be increased to $5 million, arguing he posed a danger to his victims and was a flight risk. Box, a former real estate agent and male choir singer, owns property in Thailand. Since his arrest, numerous sources — including one of his ex-wives and his son — have claimed that Box is dishonest and dangerous. Last Tuesday, three days before police obtained their rearrest warrant for Box, Balash successfully petitioned the court to reduce the distance Box must stay away from his victims from 500 yards to 100 yards. Judge Brian Hill, however, denied Box’s request that he be allowed on his Mesa property to perform maintenance and yard work. — Tyler Hayden



(ADMHS) and Aurora Vista del Mar, bringing the current fiscal year’s contract to $2.3 million. Aurora Vista del Mar, in Ventura, provides acute inpatient psychiatric care to Santa Barbara County residents when the county’s Psychiatric Health Facility’s 16 beds are full. The additional monies come from state and county coffers but could be insufficient; ADMHS will provide a financial update in May. UCSB’s express bus lines — 12x and 24x — are scheduled to extend their hours of operation and decrease wait times by fall 2015 because of a recent partnership between the university and MTD. The 24x, which goes from the downtown Transit Center to the UCSB bus loop and El Colegio and Storke roads, will run until 11:15 p.m. (two hours later) during weekdays, and until 11 p.m. on weekends. The added lines will cost the university $1.3 million each year and will also include a new route to connect Goleta, Isla Vista, and UCSB (scheduled to be implemented in fall 2016). Thirty-five percent of MTD routes lead to UCSB. Water Guardians, a new environmental group, filed an initiative 3/18 to ban fracking, acid wellstimulation treatments, cyclic steam injection, and other extraction techniques on land in the unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara County. Following review from County Counsel, the group has about a month to obtain 13,201 signatures from registered voters. If successful, the measure will then go before the Board of Supervisors this spring, which can adopt the land-use permit or send it to the voters in November. If passed, the ban would not affect alreadyapproved projects. cont’d page 13 

Cops Take on ‘Urban Travelers’

‘Crescent Crossing’ May Be in City Hall Crosshairs QUICK FIX: In response to escalating complaints about threatening behavior by “urban travelers,” city officials have transformed the “Crescent Crossing” sculpture, which doubles as a bench, into what appears to be a taped-off crime scene. Jeff, a traveler from New Hampshire, points to a chip in one of the sculpture’s bricks.


BY N I C K W E L S H lthough Santa Barbara Police Chief Cam Sanchez wasn’t actually wearing any gloves at this Tuesday’s City Council meeting, he took them off anyway as he declared his intent to eject the groups of younger belligerent street people who tend to cluster on the  block of State Street near or on the brick street sculpture — dubbed “Crescent Crossing”— designed to double as a bench and bus stop. Although complaints about the vagabond “travelers,” as Sanchez referred to them, is nothing new, the number and intensity of such concerns has crescendoed in recent weeks. Business owners have taken their mounting frustration to City Hall, the Police Department, the Downtown Organization, and any arts commissioner or city councilmember they can get on the phone. Complaints include aggressive panhandling, rude and lewd remarks, intimidation, drug dealing, chalking sidewalks and storefronts, and threatening downtown workers. The situation has grown so combustible that Urban Outfitters reportedly instructs its employees to take outdoor breaks only when accompanied by someone else. Many business owners have long contended the presence and behavior of these younger street people, often accompanied by their dogs, has done violence to their bottom line. Owners of the Habit, Blush, and Dargan’s met with the Downtown Organization’s Safety Committee in late February to express such concerns. In early March, Sanchez himself toured the area as his officers issued citations. “It’s unacceptable,” Sanchez told the council. He said he was taking cops off other assignments and redeploying them to the  block of State Street as part of a three-week trial campaign.“We have to put out the fire where the fires are,” Sanchez said. In the first six days, Sanchez reported his officers issued 151 citations, eight felony arrests, and

13 misdemeanor arrests. All, he said, involved the so-called “travelers,” whom he took pains to distinguish from the homeless or the mentally ill. Based on what he described as an “admittedly unscientific” survey, Sanchez said 90 percent of the travelers came from out of the state, not just out of town. Sanchez said he spent three hours last Friday “touring” five makeshift encampments located by freeway off-ramps beginning at 5:30 in the morning. He characterized 85 percent of the occupants he encountered as travelers. “Needles everywhere,” he exclaimed. He expressed astonishment at the technically sophisticated equipment the camps had, but even more, he said, he was struck by the filth and the squalor. Sanchez informed the councilmembers that his department would initiate a campaign to root out such camps, working in conjunction with Caltrans and the Union Pacific Railroad company. He stressed, however, that the department would give all camp occupants 72-hour advance written notice before swooping down. In the meantime, the artistically rendered street perch and bus stop has been bundled up in yellow tape, reminiscent of a crime scene, in preparation for steam cleaning and repair work on bricks that have been dinged and nicked over the years by airborne skateboarders. How long it will take to secure the necessary permits remains anyone’s guess. In the meantime, a barrier will be erected around the sculpture. That, however, is a stopgap solution. Last year, similar complaints prompted the police department to suggest the sculpture be relocated as part of a more permanent fix. But that idea was dropped in face of opposition from the Arts Commission and by the artist, Donald W. Davis, himself. Under the federal Visual Artists Rights Act, however, Davis’s work can’t be moved without his consent. cont’d page 15

Republican Reboot At a Low Point in State GOP History, Party Leaders Plot a Political Comeback


im Brulte doesn’t sugarcoat it, as befits a backroom politician who stands 6�4�, weighs 300-plus pounds, and was nicknamed “Big Man” by ex-president George W. Bush. Unlike his recent predecessors, as California Republican Party (CRP) chair, Brulte has finite patience for partisan happy talk, as he showed with some direct and candid answers to political reporters at last weekend’s state GOP convention. “This is a party that, whether we like it or not, has been in decline for over two decades in this state,” he said as the event began, plopped on a couch in his ninth-floor suite of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Burlingame.“I’d actually like to win some things.”

inally nonpartisan, state Republicans poured money and volunteers into his campaign, a case study of Brulte’s play to groom credible state contenders by electing candidates with “Republican principles.” “A lot of people are like moths that like to go to the lights. The lights are those high-profile races,” Brulte told reporters. “We’re spending a lot of time grinding it out on the ground. That is not glamorous. That is not exciting, [but] you rebuild a party from the ground up.” Perhaps the biggest challenge for Republicans is to cut into the overwhelming majorities Democrats routinely win across the state among Latinos, by far the fastest-growing group in California. As Brulte dates the start of Republican devolution back 20 years, it’s

instructive to recall that it was 1994 when Governor Pete Wilson won reelection with a campaign focused on the immigrant-bashing Proposition  and featuring his notorious “They Just Keep Coming” TV ad. At the convention, it spoke volumes that one of the best-attended events was a session sponsored by Grow Elect, a statewide political action committee that recruits, trains, and works to elect Latino Republicans, which is led by Ruben Barrales, a former San Mateo County supervisor and GOP White House aide. “I do not buy the narrative that we can’t win votes in every community,” Brulte said. “We have ceded far too much territory to the Democrats because we’ve failed to even show up to try to compete. And that’s on us.” THE WANNABES: Not surprisingly, neither

of the GOP’s top contenders for the dubious right to challenge Gov. Jerry Brown publicly agrees with the wink-wink-nudge-nudge assessment of party leaders that there is no chance of ousting the Democratic incumbent. Republican voters could not have a clearer choice: Assemblymember Tim Donnelly is an Inland Empire Tea Party member — pro-God, pro-guns, and anti-gay — while Neel Kashkari is a coastal moderate and ex–Goldman Sachs exec — pro-choice, pro–gay marriage, and pro–some gun control. Donnelly won cheers and huzzahs from the blue-hair, turquoise-string-tie crowd that predominated in Burlingame; given his beliefs, Kashkari won a victory when his convention speech gained polite applause instead of a torrent of boos.

Military Recruiters Targeted

Limiting access by military personnel to high school campuses has become the mission of Veterans for Peace and the Santa Barbara Friends Meeting (Quakers) members. A few dozen people showed up to the Faulkner Gallery last Saturday to discuss the matter and hear a handful of panelists talk about alternative opportunities for service and stricter policies in San Diego. “It’s kind of become this very casual notion that everyone is used to the military in our lives,” said Santa Barbara High School parent Kate Connell, citing “chin-up challenges” with Marines on campus as one example. Per No Child Left Behind (and tied to federal funding), public high schools must allow the same access to military recruiters as they do for college and career recruiters. School districts can place limits on recruiter campus visits, as long as the same policies apply across the board. Current Santa Barbara Unified School District protocol exists to limit all recruiter visits to twice a year, and it also states recruiters must sign in at the administration office, not have “unfettered” access to students on campus, and not offer awards or gifts in exchange for contact information. But Connell hopes to turn the guidelines into more comprehensive, permanent board policy. Such a policy could cap the number of recruiters at a single visit, detail how the policy would be enforced, and limit data from the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery Test that juniors and seniors take. Also at issue is the access that military recruiters have to student directory information. Parents (or students 18 years or older) can sign an “opt out” form, but Connell hopes to spread awareness about the form because it comes buried in a hefty packet of papers at the start of each school year. The group will meet — Kelsey Brugger again on March 31.

Though most of the 87,000 people served by the Goleta Water District are close to being back on a regular billing schedule, the software snafus that happened last fall due to a new third-party service are still unresolved for many, particularly those who recently moved to the area and have not yet received a single bill despite more than seven months of service. Those customers are now the priority for Global Water Management, the billing company first hired by the district in December 2012, with invoice delivery expected to begin this week and all sent out by the end of April. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to reclassify the tidewater goby from endangered to threatened because it “is not likely to become extinct in the foreseeable

future,” officials said this week. The goby — a small, gray-brown fish that inhabits lagoons, marshes, and freshwater tributaries along California’s coastline — was listed as endangered in 1994, but its numbers have since bounced back. A down-listing from endangered to threatened wouldn’t remove the protections the goby currently receives under the Endangered Species Act, but it would better reflect its conservation status, Wildlife officials said.

About More Mesa

Eleven years after its first symposium in 2003, members of the More Mesa Preservation Coalition gathered last Saturday at UCSB to bring the community up to date on issues, voice concerns about potential development of the property, and remind everyone why the area is so special and worthy of being preserved. “The geologic complexity has led to a mixture of habitats and species that has made More Mesa both unique and critical to save,” said wetland specialist Dr. Wayne Ferrin. Among the species noted by area biological consultant John Storrer was a range of raptors. “There is a wealth of habitat diversity that has led to the area being used by 16 different species, among them the white-tailed kite,” Storrer added, explaining that it and other raptors serve as an indicator for ecosystem health since they are at the top of the food chain. In the later morning sessions, Coalition president Valerie Olson provided an overview of the area’s history while former County Planning Director Dan Gira provided an overview of the Mesa’s planning issues. Olson reminded the group that More Mesa has survived a number of attempts to develop it, including the Buena Vida project in 1965 that proposed an 800-home complex, and a second project in 1972, the Cuesta Verde development, that would have covered the Mesa with 750 homes. In the 1970s, an environmental awakening led to the development of a Local Coastal Plan (LCP) in 1982. Gira described it as a landmark document that provided open-space areas with protections that they hadn’t had before. Many of the concepts embodied in the LCP were eventually included in the 1993 Goleta Community Plan. “What these provide are layers of protection for More Mesa if any developments are proposed in the future,” Gira said. In 2012, the Mesa property was purchased by Sheikh Khalid S. Al-Shobily, a prominent Saudi developer. To this point, no formal development plans have been submitted to the county, but Olson described the Coalition as focused on working with him to ensure that if any proposal should occur, it will protect More Mesa’s unique qualities. — Ray Ford march 20, 2014

With the deadline for open enrollment just over a week away, a collection of the most prominent health-care leaders in Santa Barbara spoke to hundreds about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the packed Fess Parker Ronald Reagan Room on Tuesday evening. Several panelists agreed that uncertainties pose the largest challenge facing providers, but those challenges also open the door for new leadership and creative collaboration. Interest in the confusing topic was evident by the sheer number of attendees. Despite various unknowns about how the reform act will play out, several panelists said the fact that the health-care system had been largely ineffective — fragmented and “provider-centered”— gives hope that a transition toward “patient-centered” care for all is possible. Perhaps the first audience question best demonstrated muddled public understanding of the new law: Is the Affordable Care Act the first step toward the single-payer system? “I’d like to phone a friend,” responded Sansum Clinic CEO Kurt Ransohoff, eliciting a laugh from the crowd. He then said he doubted the “cynical view” that the act was intentionally flawed to ensure it would eventually fall apart. But the future of the ACA, he added, is just not clear yet. Such lack of clarity is even evident with ambiguous information and unusual patient behavior. Sansum saw an uptake of patients last November and December — rather than during January and February, typical flu season — because people were eager to meet their deductibles at the end of the year given the indefinite future. Further, despite that an individual mandate is a component of the ACA, the modest fine for ignoring it is an unlikely incentive to ensure people sign up. Another change was addressed by Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care CEO Lynda Tanner, who said 40 percent of the home health-care agencies will have to close, hindering quality of care to people in rural areas. In closing remarks, Sansum Clinic’s Dr. Fred Kass explained that missing from the entire Affordable Care Act discussion are representatives from the pharmaceutical industry. “There’s an assumption that if the pharmaceutical companies don’t make a certain profit, it will stunt the growth of new medicines … We’ve got to find a — Kelsey Brugger way to control the cost of pharmaceutical drugs.”

ELECTIONS Supervisors Doreen Farr and Steve Lavagnino this week threw their political weight behind Sheriff Bill Brown (pictured) in his June 3 election battle against challenger Sgt. Sandra Brown. In a prepared statement, Farr called Brown an “experienced leader” whose “leadership has proven invaluable during the last few years of economic hardships for the county.”

Lavagnino, running unopposed in June, praised the sheriff for securing state funding for the planned North County Jail — $80 million for construction costs and $39 million for a recidivism-reducing wing — saying the facility wouldn’t be close to fruition without Brown’s “foresight and leadership.” ■

Urban Travelers cont’d from page 11

LAYING DOWN GAUNTLET: Police Chief Cam Sanchez (center) — flanked by assistant chief Frank Mannix (right) and spokesperson Riley Harwood (left) — outlined steps his department is taking to combat the urban travelers.

Police spokesperson Riley Harwood noted that the sculpture no longer functions as a bus stop because MTD — in response to the travelers’ emergence onto the scene many years ago — relocated its stop. He said the street art might do better in front of Cottage Hospital or by the city’s airport. The sculpture, he said, helps pinch in the sidewalk, bringing the panhandlers in closer proximity to passersby, as do the outdoor patios installed by some of the newer restaurants in the area. Throw in the paseo connecting State Street to Parking Lot , Harwood added, and you have a recipe for trouble that no amount of cops can cure. Besides, he added, not all objectionable behavior is illegal. Harwood acknowledged there are plans to install a video monitor on the  block of State Street. Others have suggested that police issue citations to travelers who violate city ordinances banning smoking within 20 feet of an outdoor dining establishment or possessing an unlicensed dog. Others have proposed City Hall adopt an ordinance banning anyone from parking their backpacks on the sidewalk. But

such citations are only as effective as City Hall’s ability to enforce them, and given the shortage of space in the County Jail, that’s not much. Tuesday was the first day on the job for new City Attorney Ariel Calonne, who was peppered with constitutional questions from Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss, who wanted to know if it was legal for cops to demand identification from people with backpacks sitting on city benches. “There needs to be some cause,” Calonne replied. “Are you being intentionally vague?” shot back Hotchkiss, eager to provide city police maximum enforcement latitude.“I am,” the new city attorney replied. No one from the public or the council spoke up on behalf of the travelers, not even councilmembers who typically voice concern for the homeless. Councilmember Cathy Murillo took Chief Sanchez to task for contributing to anti-pit-bull stereotypes by linking them with the travelers.“It’s the people who make the dogs behave in a bad way, not the dogs,” said Murillo, who owns and has rescued several pit bulls. Sanchez answered, “I apologize if I insulted you.” ■ march 20, 2014

Crazy Like a Dog

DIGGING UP THE DREAD: This week we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, which has morphed into a giant Cinco de Mayo party for white people, by drinking copious quantities of Guinness — a dankly dark Dublin brew capable of

absorbing more light than all the black holes of the solar system combined — as if they actually liked the stu. Pretty crazy? Crazier still, Santa Barbara City Hall will observe the actual Cinco de Mayo festivities by going to court in pursuit of the much discussed, though rarely debated, gang injunction. For those aicted with concern about ethnic sensitivities, the timing seems a little awkward. On gang injunctions, I’m a skeptical agnostic. Maybe they make sense some places. But here in Santa Barbara? I have serious doubts. First, gang violence has diminished since Police Chief Cam Sanchez ďŹ rst proposed the injunction three years ago. City cops have ďŹ gured out how to respond eectively without availing themselves of the superpowers the injunction would allegedly bestow. Whatever the outcome of the Cinco de Mayo trial, the results will be appealed. And for years. My unsolicited advice to Santa Barbara’s new city attorney, Ariel Calonne? Cut your losses, declare a qualiďŹ ed victory, and use your ďŹ nite time and resources on something other than grand rhetorical gestures. Serious crime in Santa Barbara, as Chief Sanchez told the council Tuesday, continues to drop. There was one-third less serious crime reported in the ďŹ rst two months of 2014 than the same time

the year before. Aggravated assaults dropped by more than half from the previous February. As Sanchez explained, basic shoe-leather police work pays o. It pays o with gang violence, too. The best public debate on the proposed injunction that no one will ever hear — and hardly anyone attended — took place last Wednesday not in the council chambers but at the Chamber of Commerce’s new digs. (The only public discussion to take place in City Council chambers occurred years after the councilmembers had already voted, behind closed doors, to approve the injunction.) The Chamber discussion took place at the instigation of middleof-the-road councilmember Gregg Hart, who campaigned as a candidate last fall against the injunction. Hart is one of only two council votes against the injunction, the other being Cathy Murillo. With those odds, he could have easily picked more winnable battles to ďŹ ght. I’m glad he didn’t. Rather than preach to the politically correct choir, Hart sought to win the hearts and minds of the area business community. Three weeks ago, he successfully persuaded the Association of Realtors to oppose the injunction on the grounds it would require real estate agents to disclose to potential buyers if the property in question was located in any of the gang safety zone, which cumulatively encompass 42 percent of the city’s physical mass, designated by the injunction. Hart had the element of surprise, and the realtors decided in his favor before hearing from the other side.

If he could pull the same trick with the chamber, maybe he could win over business-minded councilmembers, like Randy Rowse. But by last week, the element of surprise was gone, and “the other sideâ€? was on hand to make its case. Not coincidentally, it happened to be Randy Rowse. Also jumping in was County Supervisor Salud Carbajal, who opined — as a former resident of Oxnard’s gang-riddled La Colonia neighborhood — that Santa Barbara’s gang problem was “minimal.â€? Carbajal said he supported the injunction only because Latinos are most aected by gang violence, but cautioned his support was “tepidâ€? and that he might change his mind. Hart made his pitch that since 18 of the 30 worst-of-the-worst have already been arrested, sentenced, or deported without the aid of the injunction, it made no sense to spend $1 million ďŹ ghting for the injunction in court to put away the remaining 12. Traditional police methods, he stressed, got the job done. And why tarnish the entire city’s reputation as a dangerous gang haven, he asked, when we’re spending millions to promote it as a destination resort? Rowse provided the rebuttal with eective amiability. He argued nothing in state law requires real estate agents to disclose the safety zones and took issue with Hart’s math regarding the true costs of litigating the matter. (Real estate agents are required to disclose any “materialâ€? information about the properties they list, and like “pornography,â€? the deďŹ nition of “materialâ€? is suďŹƒciently broad. Regardless of the law, many in the business subscribe to the better-safethan-sorry school of thought and disclose as

much as possible to protect themselves against potential litigation. The true costs to City Hall are similarly susceptible to interpretation, but over a year ago, City Hall itself estimated it had spent $500,000 preparing for the trial.) Rowse’s key point was that the injunction would provide cops a valuable tool in keeping established gang members from recruiting new and younger members. Anything that undermines “hero worshipâ€? of the old by the young, he said, is to be applauded. Jumping in from the sidelines with a voice like rolling thunder, Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss stole the show when it came to raw passion, expressed both theatrically and sincerely. Sixteen people had been killed by gang violence since the 1990s, Hotchkiss boomed, and while others might place a price tag on their lives, he would not. Naturally I thought Hart had the more persuasive argument; after all, he agreed with me. But that’s not the point. The point is that members of the council actually debated the merits of the injunction among themselves out in the open and not behind the closed-door protection that’s aorded lawsuits and issues of potential litigation. To belabor the obvious, had the council conducted this kind of public discourse then, maybe we could have avoided the problem we’re in now. It looks doubtful Hart can get there from here. Even so, he insists he’ll bring the matter back to the council one last time before the trial starts. Who knows — maybe sanity will strike in the meantime. Hey, any reason to hoist a Guin— Nick Welsh ness is good enough for me.

Coping with Voices


any people diagnosed with schizophrenia hear distressing voices and have difficulty coping with these voices. Some mental-health doctors regard hearing voices as a meaningful and real (although sometimes fearful and overwhelming) event that speaks to people in a metaphorical way about their lives, emotions, and environment. These doctors’ work became known as the Hearing Voices Movement, which began over 25 years ago and is now actively used in 24 countries (intervoiceonline .org) and 12 states ( An important outcome of this approach is that a number of voice hearers have discovered their own ability to recover!

Santa Barbara Peer Empowerment, a project of the Independent Living Resource Center, proudly announces peer support groups for people who hear voices. The groups offer individuals a much-needed social support system and an opportunity to discuss their voices in a nonjudgmental environment, explore coping strategies, and share their stories of recovery. Our groups are held from 1-2:30 p.m. on both Saturday (women only) and Sunday (coed) at the cafeteria of  East Canon Perdido. A two-day workshop in April is for clinicians, therapists, and voice hearers; preregistration is required.

Support Gang Injunction


can think of 5,272 reasons to support the Civil Gang Injunction: That’s the number of children from 4th-8th grades in our public schools, children who are the most susceptible to forcible gang recruitment. The injunction will make the city safer for everyone, especially those who live in neighborhoods where gangs loiter, using threats, drug use and sales, and even murder to intimidate. Approval of the injunction will send a clear message to the bad guys. Sixteen people have been killed since the early 1990s in gang-related killings, including some innocent bystanders. People opposing the injunction claim it will cost too much. The city hasn’t budgeted one extra dollar to this effort; it is part of the daily tasks of police and the city attorney. And nowhere in the state have home values declined where injunctions have been created. I cannot abandon one part of our city to crime and violence because it costs too much. That’s why I and a City Council majority support the civil gang injunction. (More at —Frank Hotchkiss

Could a mathematical algorithm possibly earn $1 billion? It did for Sergey Brin and Larry Page, co-founders of Google. Their algorithm for determining page ranks on a search engine changed the Web and how we use it. But that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Mathematical theories are used today in applications that defy belief. Russell Howell will gear his talk for a non-mathematical audience and will show how many ideas in mathematics have produced practical—and often invisible—effects on our day-to-day activities, such as using credit cards in a secure way or booking airline reservations. He will also explore briefly a deep question: Why are mathematical theories, which are generated primarily out of aesthetic criteria, so successful in their applicability to the physical world?

Hope Springs for Wrecked Miramar

HOTEL DREAMS: Hope springs eternal

when it comes to rebuilding the beloved old Miramar Hotel, closed since 2000 and now just a Montecito beachside pile of wreckage. But County Supervisor Salud Carbajal tells me that Matt Middlebrook, owner Rick Caruso’s right-hand man, told him recently that he hopes to get financing by May. May? That’s “over optimistic,” Middlebrook told me by phone Monday. But the market for financing of new “ground up” hotels, as opposed to existing resorts,“has improved in the last few months, and we have had a number of conversations,” he said. “We are more hopeful than we have been for a number of years.” True, Caruso is involved in other projects, like renovating the Pacific Palisades shopping area, but that’s a different kind of animal, he said. So don’t pop any corks yet, Montecito. Since 2000, the old blue-roofed resort has gone through three owners, seen two plans approved by county supervisors (a big plan and a small one, take your pick), been torn down, and still awaits action by Caruso. He bought it in 2007 for $50 million from Ty Warner, who paid $43 million to hotelier Ian Schrager, who bought the place for $32 million. In the meantime, Caruso has had time and money for various L.A.-area projects, irritating the locals here who have to look at the wreckage. The persistent talk around town is that the project doesn’t pencil out and can’t

show a profit. So, according to this reasoning, no lender’s been tempted — yet.


be required to switch from at-large city council elections to a district system? Could be, judging from a lawsuit to be filed soon by attorney Barry Cappello. Cappello says his suit, which he expects to file in about 90 days, is aimed at forcing the city to end its at-large system because it discriminates against minority residents and violates the California Voting Rights Act. Latino neighborhoods on the Eastside and Westside suffer neglect due to lack of representation, he charged. Cappello’s suit calls for creating six council districts but electing the mayor at large. The city’s population is now about 38 percent Latino, Cappello said. Cathy Murillo was elected in 2011, the first Latino since Gil Garcia served, 1991-2001. Last December, a judge ordered the city of Palmdale to switch to district voting because the at-large system impermissibly diluted the minority vote. Cappello, who is working on a pro-bono basis, declined to identify his plaintiffs at this time.

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.

hat did you see in your dreams last night? Have you ever written them down in a journal? Most people know that Carl Gustav Jung, the visionary Swiss psychoanalyst who founded the field of depth psychology and viewed a person’s inner life as a source of enlightenment and healing, spent a lifetime studying dreams and their meanings. Fewer people realize that the master of dream therapy himself surreptitiously authored a secret book filled with his own ruminations, dreams, and hallucinogenic drawings — The Red Book. After a long, furtive, and mysterious journey that began almost 100 years ago, Jung’s Red Book, hidden for generations, can be viewed in a rare showing at Pacifica Graduate Institute in a six-week free exhibit. This unusual viewing of the remarkable masterpiece is made possible through a series of high-definition, digitally enhanced, and enlarged limited-edition fine-art prints from DigitalFusion, the premier specialist in archival digital capture, and brought to Santa Barbara by the Jung Foundation and Pacifica Graduate Institute. During a crisis in Jung’s career, when he was in opposition to almost everyone in the nascent field of psychiatry, including his onetime mentor, Sigmund Freud; at a point when his marriage was threatened by an intoxicating affair with a younger analysand and professional collaborator; and when, in his own words, he was “menaced by a psychosis” by a “confrontation with the unconscious” and an “incessant stream” of visions, Jung began to secretly record not just his dreams but his hallucinations, his doubts, his demons, and his vanity. He first detailed them in a series of six black journals that came to be known as the “black books” and later transferred, refined, and illustrated his writings in a handmade, red leather-bound book, filled with thick cream-vellum paper, weighing nearly 10 pounds that Jung called simply, The Red Book.

THE BOOK In total, 77 large-scale digital prints were developed from the original pages of The Red Book, and upon viewing the suite of 23 individual 25 × 38.5 curated images on display at Pacifica, the vividness of Jung’s meticulous handiwork is evident. “You are able to see Jung’s personal painting,” said Willow Young, a Jungian analyst at Pacifica Graduate Institute who is chair of the program in counseling psychology. “Jung’s visions, inner experience, and confrontation with the unconscious have come back to life.” The massive Red Book is a lush, meticulous, hypnagogic work, chaotic but compulsively


PICTURE THIS: Carl Jung (right), the master of dream therapy, surreptitiously authored a secret book filled with his own ruminations, dreams, and hallucinogenic drawings — The Red Book. Hidden for generations, the tome can be viewed in a rare showing at Pacifica Graduate Institute in a free six-week exhibit. controlled, that Jung was driven to create. Yet despite his extraordinary care and attention, Jung never published it during his lifetime. He feared, perhaps correctly, that The Red Book could ruin his career. Europe in the early 1900s was in upheaval: World War I raged, empires fell, social boundaries were changing, and an intellectual struggle was going on in the world of psychiatry and psychoanalysis. Scientists were just beginning to interpret their own dreams and those of others. Conflicting methods of interpretation grew

into a test of the scientific authority and therapeutic promise. It was an intellectual, professional, and vainglorious battle waged not only on groundbreaking research into the human psyche, but also on the basis of personal and intimate accusations. Jung knew that his Red Book, should it be exposed, could be

used against him professionally and personally. Jung was already ostracized following his break with Freud, and he had resigned his position at the Burghölzli, a renowned psychiatric clinic in Zurich where he had treated the ramblings of delusional patients as material worthy of interpretation rather than as unintelligible ravings and had developed the first word-association tests validating the role of the unconscious. He also resigned as chair of the International Psychoanalytical Association, where he had been placed by Freud. Jung was acutely aware of the risks The Red Book posed to his reputation. So Jung buried his soul into his dream journal and hid it away to protect himself. However, leading Jungian scholar Sonu Shamdasani believed that it was Jung’s intention for his “book of the soul” one day to be published and spent three years convincing the Jung Foundation and family to allow him to edit The Red Book for circulation. Shamdasani pointed to the fact that the text contains on several occasions the address “dear friends,” as if directed at an audience. And Jung let close friends have copies of transcriptions and even allowed patients to see the book, considering it a model for his clinical practice. But still the family was reluctant; Carl Jung died in 1961, and since then his heirs had kept The Red Book hidden away in a bank vault in Switzerland. Shamdasani, an author, editor, and professor at the University College London Centre for the History of Medicine, waged a campaign to get the book published. Although not a Jungian, he studied Jung for decades and was drawn to the breadth of his psychology as well as his knowledge of Eastern thought. And despite Jung’s own claim that he was on the verge of mental collapse when he wrote the book, Shamdasani disagrees. “It wasn’t a breakdown. While he was doing this, he was maintaining

A Degree Program That Offers the Best of Both Coasts M.A./Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with Emphasis in Jungian & Archetypal Studies A Bi-Coastal Online/ Low-Residency Graduate Degree Program Students enrolling in this M.A./Ph.D. program for Spring 2014 will attend half of their residential sessions at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, and half at the New York Open Center in Manhattan.

Based on the work of C. G. Jung and James Hillman, this M.A./Ph.D. program takes depth psychology out of the clinical consulting room into the world at large, critically exploring myth, dream, film, soul, spirit, ecology, religion, cultural phenomena, creativity, personal transformation, and more. The course of study provides skills and practices that students can apply directly in their professional, personal, and creative lives.

BOOK OF THE SOUL: Jung considered The Red Book the genesis, nucleus, and source of all his subsequent work on archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation. his practice, seeing patients, attending to clerical work, and performing his duties with his family,” Shamdasani said. “This isn’t automatic drawing. It’s extraordinarily controlled. It’s not art therapy. Jung saw it as a religious quest. It was always intended for an audience.” Shamdasani did finally get the family’s consent to his request; it took an additional 13 years to translate and edit The Red Book and finally arrange publication in 2009, along with more than 1,000 footnotes.“This has lasted longer than the Trojan War,” Shamdasani quipped. “Overall the narrative of the book is how Jung recovers his soul, recovers meaning in his life … and in so doing he created a psychology that creates a vehicle for others to regain meaning in their life.” Jung considered The Red Book the genesis, nucleus, and the source of all his subsequent work on archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation. It distinguished Jung from his mentor Sigmund Freud and laid claim to some of the most important discoveries regarding the human psyche. It makes one think that without The Red Book, Jung might have been a mere footnote in history.

THE LEGACY Today, Jung’s influence is so pervasive that it can easily be taken for granted as a basic building block of Western culture. If you’ve ever embraced or rolled your eyes at a New Age philosopher, sat in a chair opposite a counselor instead of lying on a couch, discussed whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, or wondered at the results of a Myers-Briggs test, then you’ve felt the influence of Carl Jung. If art therapy has been beneficial to you or your children or if you have studied in the crosscurrents of Eastern and Western religion and contemplated the notion of spirituality or attended Alcoholics Anonymous or meditated as a form of recovery, then you’ve experienced the far reaching effects of Jung’s work. He wasn’t perhaps the only source for these endeavors and understandings, but he was certainly a pioneer in exploring them. Jung’s sway in art is legendary — artists as diverse as Jackson Pollock, Federico Fellini, and Martha Graham have cited his influence. And for better or worse, Jung is the original source, via his disciple Joseph Campbell, of Hollywood’s infatuation with “the hero’s journey” as a vehicle for box-office success. Although Jung warned against hero worship, Hollywood studio filmmaking has burdened every male hero and comic-book character with a dramatic arc based on the hero’s journey that has now been bludgeoned to death on the screens of American cinema. But reading The Red Book reinvigorates and washes clean the over-used clichés of archetypal study and reasserts the authenticity of the inner journey. That is why The Red Book is so important.“Jungian content is so diluted today,”

_Spring_Arts_Preview_ Shamdasani said recently, “that it’s like low-alcohol beer. This book has the real blood in it.” Earlier this month, the symposium The Art and Transformative Psychology of C.G. Jung’s Red Book at Pacifica Graduate Institute proved that Jung’s Red Book has already taken on a new life of its own. Given the interdisciplinary presentations by the wide variety of speakers, this 100-year-old “encyclopedic palace of the imagination,” with its ornate calligraphy and psychedelic illustrations, its incantations and entrancing mandalas, and sometimes grisly painted panels, has already begun to be assimilated into our cultural understanding. Depending on whom you ask, Jung’s Red Book is a dream book, visionary literature, a spiritual footprint, a portal into the active imagination, a cherished totem for followers, a rebellion against the psychiatric establishment, an entrance into another world, a bible for therapeutic Gnosticism, a model for patients or anyone who chooses to find their own way through an inner journey, a mindaltering LSD trip without drugs, a manual of spiritual alchemy for self-transformation and self-development, or simply a record of one man’s mental breakdown. To art critic and Huffington Post contributor Peter Frank, it remains a great work of art. “It is an endlessly fascinating and staggeringly luxurious artifact, a thing of beauty and of magic,” he wrote. “It could pass for a Bible rendered by a medieval monk, especially for the care with which Jung entered his writing as ornate Gothic script.” It just happens that his art is “dedicated not to the glory of God or king, but to that of the human race.” As such The Red Book asserts by its mere existence Jung’s clearest and most important departure from the psychiatry of Freudian inclinations. Rather than placing the therapist on a pedestal and treating the patient as cut off and unaware of his or her truth, Jungian depth psychology and dream analysis is a model for trusting oneself and one’s imagination and having the courage to face one’s own demons. It heralds the creative transformation of self. According to Young, “It expands our capacity as therapists to receive the unconscious and the psyche and to trust the patient model for trusting yourself as opposed to telling a patient what is wrong with them.” Pacifica Graduate Institute founding president Dr. Stephen Aizenstat stresses that The Red Book tells us not to be afraid of our dreams even if we’re under attack.“The secret of The Red Book story is being an adapter and utilizing your inner resources,” he said. “If you’re tapped into your creativity and ingenuity, it’s hard to be anxious and depressed and creative at the same time.”

THE WOUNDED HEALER The Red Book begins with the words “the way of what is to come …” and Hugh Milstein, cofounder and president of DigitalFusion, said that after poring over these prints endlessly, he discovered something intriguing. “There’s a hidden egg, a little egg in almost every one,” he said. Then, pointing at a series of prints from The Red Book, he shows that “the egg starts to give off light and then to explode

ILLUMINATING MANUSCRIPT: “It could pass for a Bible rendered by a medieval monk,” art critic Peter Frank said of The Red Book. It just happens that Jung’s art is “dedicated not to the glory of God or king, but to that of the human race.” out.” Not being a Jungian scholar, he hesitates to draw a meaning from his observation. But clearly Jung meant for all of us to make up our own minds and to come to our own conclusions. “There is only one way, and that is your way,” Jung writes at one point in The Red Book. “You seek the path? I warn you away from my own. It can also be the wrong path for you. May each go his own way. I will be no savior, no lawgiver, no master teacher unto you. You are no longer little children. … May each seek out his own way. The way leads to mutual love in community. Men will come to see and feel the similarity and commonality of their ways.” Intrigued by stories of miraculous healing and alchemy as metaphor, Jung likely knew that in that period when he was writing The Red Book, he fit one of the archetypes he was most famous for defining — that of the Wounded Healer, the Wise Man, the Hermit on the mountain who retreats to rediscover the principles of healing, who humbles himself before visions of the divine. As shown by figures in myth as ancient as Chiron (the centaur famous for his healing powers while suffering from a wound that would never heal) and Merlin the magician and his Shadow and as contemporary as Gandalf, Dumbledore, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and, of course, even Darth Vader, one must take the inner journey and follow one’s own path. So look for the hidden egg and follow it through Jung’s Red Book drawings and marvel at what it might have meant to Jung and what it might mean to you.

ew artists have captured the heart of a generation

the way that Beck has. In the 1990s, his seemingly haphazard mix of lo-fi rock and hip-hop tropes made believers out of droves of music fans. And in the years since, the Los Angeles–bred songwriter has earned accolades from even the most unlikely of critics. In ’96, his Odelay soundtracked an era of post-metal, nu-grunge youth; on Midnite Vultures, he channeled a version of R&B pseudo-disco that struck a chord in spite of its over-the-top tendencies; and come 2002’s Sea Change, he successfully carved a space in the tearful singer/songwriter canon with a curveball collection of heartfelt and striking unadorned arrangements. In the years since, Beck has made a whacked-out ode to the City of Angels (2005’s Guero) and embraced the digital realm with open arms (2006’s The Information). On his latest, this year’s Morning Phase, the man less known as Beck Hansen harks back to a stark, more simplified version of himself. The album sticks mostly to acoustic-guitar and piano arrangements and finds the singer opening up about and coming to terms with life as a father and husband. Sure, it may not be as adventurous as we’ve seen him in the past,


but this Beck is just one in a countless number of variations. More importantly, though, Morning Phase makes it known that, even in singer/songwriter mode, Beck is taking chances and making choices that most artists would never dare to try.

of modern lives thwarted by bureaucracy. Magda’s husband must flee their Eastern European country, but she is delayed in joining him by difficulty in obtaining the necessary visa. To get the feeling of this 1950 work, which ran for many months on Broadway and won the Pulitzer Prize for Music, there’s something you need to know about the title character, the consul. Not only is he not in the opera; nobody is really sure that he even exists. With Ensemble Theatre Company artistic director Jonathan Fox in charge of the staging, Alexandra LoBianco as Magda Sorel, and hometown favorite Nina Yoshida Nelsen also in the small cast, The Consul is sure to be a memorable production full of gorgeous melodies and thrilling suspense.

Bill Cain

laywright Bill Cain has guts. In

Equivocation, his 2009 drama that will be produced at UCSB’s Hatlen Theater this spring, he not only dramatizes the man Shakespeare but also invents a whole new Shakespeare play based on the notorious Gunpowder Plot in which angry Roman Catholics tunneled under Parliament in an attempt to blow up King James I. The idea of a drama based on the Gunpowder Plot comes to the Bard as a “suggestion” straight from King James, and the show’s story follows Shakespeare as he investigates the case and eventually bridles at the thought of writing propaganda. Cain, once a Jesuit himself, and an extraordinarily erudite scholar of the playwright and the period, has come up with something that’s at once deliriously clever and shockingly direct. As one of the many real-life characters portrayed Metamorphoses by the small cast of six puts it to Shakespeare, “You’ve killed more kings than any man in England.” At UCSB’s Hatlen Theater, May 23-31.

n a world where contemporary art would

seem to have mined every approach imaginable, what’s new under the big black sun? Complete immersion in the artistic process, that’s what. Some time in early May, about a week prior to her exhibition opening at MCA Santa Barbara, Berlin-based artist Marinella Senatore will arrive in town ready to engage. Senatore will be bringing a retrospective of her recent work in the form of films, photographs, paintings, and other documentation, but she will also arrive charged with creating an original work that’s based on the people she meets here in Santa Barbara, because the core concept of Senatore’s art is total participation of the audience in the creation of the work. The only specific detail that the artist will tie

herself to at this point is that she will be staging a parade to celebrate the MCA’s transition to museum status. The rest will work itself out when she gets here and begins her process of auditions, photo shoots, and public events. Expect to be surprised: Senatore is a highly accomplished filmmaker in the tradition of Fellini and Antonioni, and her spectacles elsewhere have resulted in ravishing short films. One can only imagine what they must be like viewed from the inside, as the artist intends. At the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, May 11 - August 17. Call 966-5373 or visit — CD

Nursing certification specialties now include medical-surgical, pediatric, pain management, cardiac-vascular, oncology, hospice, case management, emergency nursing, critical care and many others. Cottage Health System encourages national board certification for all of its nurses. Today and every day, we honor our nurses’ dedication, professionalism and hard work.

Side-Splitting Memoir


umor, writes Gary Shteyn-gart in his engrossing memoir, Little Failure, is “the last resort of the besieged Jew, especially when he is placed amongg his own kind.” Shteyngart knows what it means to be besieged — by the ghosts of relatives killed in Rus-sia during World War II, and by the American culture into which he is thrust in 1978 at the age of 7 when his Jewish parents are allowed to emigrate from the Soviet Union. To be lifted from “fourteen shades of Stalin-era beige” and dropped into Technicolor America is as ristened Gary vertiginous to the young Igor (rechristened to save him some physical and psychological torment) as the dissolution of the Soviet Union will be to millions of people some 13 years later. As a memoirist, the award-winning Shteyngart is unflinchingly honest. He arrives in New York convinced that he is crossing the threshold of the Soviet Union’s most implacable enemy. Not only is his family poor and dependent on charity, but Shteyngart is a diminutive and nerdy asthmatic who speaks less than a dozen words of English and bears an unpronounceable surname. His overprotective mother spies danger around every corner and sews Gary’s mittens to his coat so they won’t get lost. Against this foolproof recipe for peer ridicule and angst, Shteyngart deploys a precocious mind and an acute sense of humor. By turns poignant and hilarious, Little Failure contains echoes of Franz — Brian Tanguay Kafka, the Marx Brothers, and Philip Roth.

CALL FOR Summer Camp Stories

“This one time at band camp, I …” said Alyson Hannigan’s character in 1999’s infamously raunchy film American Pie. And while the second half of the sentence is shockingly memorable, we at The Indy are only interested in the first bit — and not just at band camps. Our annual Summer Camp issue hits the stands on April 10, and we thought it would be fun to include camp memories from Santa Barbarans. Here are the rules (please read carefully): Submit a 300word piece about one of your summer camp experiences: a memorable moment, a funny occurrence, a whimsical experience, a life lesson learned. Include your full name and contact information and attach a digital photo of you at said camp (if possible). Stories must be appropriate for all ages — i.e., no American Pie–like high jinks. The deadline is Monday, March 31, 2014. Send submissions (subject line: Camp Stories Contest) via email to — Michelle Drown

UCSB Ups and Downs

Gaucho Basketball Is Defeated While Baseball Team Owns the Field


fter the shocker came the Shockers, and UCSB sports fans started to feel a little better about things. The shocker was the Gauchos’ dreadful 31-point defeat at the hands of Cal Poly in the opening game of the Big West men’s basketball tournament last Thursday. It was hardly the most mystifying event in a week that a huge airliner vanished, but it was a headscratcher nonetheless. Poly’s subsequent run to the championship made UCSB’s stumble only slightly less painful. (“Hey, we lost to the 68th seed in the NCAA tournament.”) The season is best remembered by the Gauchos’ rout of the Runnin’ Rebels in Las Vegas and their home victories over Cal and UC Irvine, two occasions when they were the aggressors from the opening tip to the final horn. The next day, it was apparent the sky had not fallen on Gaucholand. The weekend baseball series between UCSB and the Wichita State Shockers at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium was played in bright sunshine. The Gauchos took the opener, 2-1, behind the brilliant pitching of sophomore Justin Jacome. His effort was appreciated even more on Saturday, when the Shockers banged out 17 hits in a 16-5 victory. The Gauchos rallied to win the rubber match Sunday, 3-2. That was the 13th consecutive series that they have either won or tied. “We’re resilient,” UCSB coach Andrew Checketts said. “That’s the best team we faced. After getting bludgeoned, beat up really bad, the guys showed they have a short memory.” With a 13-3 record, the Gauchos are getting noticed. They are ranked in the top 20 by two national publications, Collegiate Baseball (15th) and Baseball America (19th). Sunday’s game came to a dramatic conclusion. With one out in the bottom of the ninth, Billy Fredrick drove in the winning run on a double that one-hopped the fence in right field. Fredrick, a freshman from Santa Clarita, has had three collegiate at-bats, all as a pinch hitter. The results: a triple, a single, and a double. He is a home run away from beginning his career with the cycle. It may not be as improbable as a perfect NCAA basketball bracket, but it’s still an odds-defying prospect. “I was a little nervous,” said Fredrick, whose walk-off double came on a 3-1 pitch.“The way my team had been battling the whole game, I didn’t want to let them down. [Wichita State] knocked us down, and we wanted to get up and punch them back. I was lucky to get a pitch I liked.” Sophomore southpaw Domenic Mazza pitched into the seventh inning after giving up two early runs to Wichita State, and junior Greg Mahle picked up the victory in relief. Joey Epperson’s solo home run in the fifth inning — extending his hitting streak to 21 games — ignited UCSB’s comeback. The senior outfielder, batting leadoff for the Gauchos, is hitting at a .484 clip. Epperson came to UCSB from Santa Barbara City College last season. He hit his stride as a Division  player at the same time the Gauchos made their run into the NCAA tournament.“We went from uncertainty to realizing that we’re right up there with the best of them,” Epperson said.“That doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. Every game, every practice, we have to show up.” The Gauchos’ diligence showed in the sacrifice bunts

by John Zant executed by two of their sluggers, Tyler Kuresa and Robby Nesovic. Kuresa, who has four home runs, advanced Woody Woodward to third, from where

he scored the tying run on a wild pitch in the sixth inning. After Andrew Calica led off the ninth with a single, Nesovic bunted him to second. He was able to race home after Fredrick’s blast landed behind the right fielder. The Gauchos play a four-game series this weekend (March 21-23) — including a Saturday double-header — against Wagner College from Staten Island, N.Y., and the following weekend Hawai‘i comes into Uyesaka Stadium to open the Big West Conference season.

HAPPY HOOPSTERS: “March Sadness” is the

cliché whenever a basketball team falters in the postseason, but it was hard to find disappointed losers last Sunday at the 14th annual Special Olympics

TEAM WORK: Last Sunday, 38 teams from San Luis Obispo to Burbank competed in the daylong, 14th annual Special Olympics Regional Basketball Tournament at UCSB’s Thunderdome. Shouts and cheers punctuated the clamor of floor play whenever a shot found the hoop. above: The Northern S.B. County team huddled for a strategy talk during a timeout. left: Ventura went toe-to-toe against Santa Clarita.

Regional Basketball Tournament. Thirty-eight teams

from San Luis Obispo to Burbank competed in the daylong event, fully utilizing the six courts inside UCSB’s Thunderdome. Shouts and cheers punctuated the clamor of floor play whenever a shot found the hoop. On at least one occasion, an otherwise spectacular layup was waived off by the referee because a young man made it at his opponent’s end. A teachable moment. “This is more fun than running a DUI check,” said Sheriff ’s Lieutenant Butch Arnoldi, a longtime supporter of Special Olympics. His duty was to drape medals around the smiling — and sometimes serious — faces of the players after they completed their three games in different divisions. Gold, silver, and bronze were equally cherished. The host organization, Special Olympics of Santa Barbara County, mustered dozens of volunteers to make the big event a success. They should be proud.

DONS RALLY: Santa Barbara High was one of the last

teams standing as the CIF State Girls Basketball Championships entered the regional semifinals this week. It was

a wild scene in J.R. Richards Gym last Saturday when the Dons, trailing by eight points at halftime, outscored La Cañada 40-20 in the second half to secure a 55-43 victory. Santa Barbara’s furious defensive pressure rattled the visitors in the third quarter, and Jada Howard’s high-arching three-point shots kept them at bay in the fourth.

BIG SHOTS: Noah Bryant entered some rarefied terri-

breathe air from the surface into a swim bladder that is modified into a pseudo-lung. They eat fish and small mammals and will even defend their territory from humans, leaping from the water like acrobatic salmon and packing a mighty whack. According to Isaac Gherson, the CEO of the Amazone project, paiche are grown in specially created ponds in the Amazon rain forest where they are fed pellets made from Peruvian anchovies without other animal byproducts. They breed naturally and are grown at low densities. The ponds are continuously flushed with fresh, clean water from the Amazon. Worried about Fukushima radiation in your fish? You can’t get much farther away from Japan on this planet than the Amazon. The fish is popular as an ingredient in trendy Peruvian restaurants, such as Mo-Chica and, fittingly, Paiche in Los Angeles.“I love this fish,” said Chef Ricardo Zarate, who owns those two restaurants and recently opened the Blue Tavern on State Street in Santa Barbara. “It’s an amazing fish, like a mix between black cod and monkfish.” He serves it as ceviche (thin-sliced or carpaccio style), baked, or grilled (but don’t overcook). In my own kitchen, I dusted a zesty fish rub on one side of a fillet and bread crumbs on the other and then pan-seared it in a mix of olive oil and butter, 3 minutes per side. Then I finished it with a few minutes in the oven at 350°F. The fish was mild and tender. Garnish with a dab of Peruvian ají and sprig of cilantro. The paiche exported by Amazone are registered and certified as farmed fish and do not impact depleted wild populations. The company has been involved in projects (with the World Wildlife Fund) to restock paiche in their natural environment, thus benefiting native fishers who supply their nearby markets and might someday develop export markets. Cultivating paiche is a reasonable approach to encourage and support low-impact development that is sustainable to the health of the Amazon rain forest and its inhabitants. How do we protect ourselves, the rain forest, and the region’s farmers? Consider buying from certified reputable sources who guarantee that the product is farmed in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. ■ SEAFOOD SAVIOR? Whole Foods is now serving up paiche at its seafood counter, as held here by Danny the fishmonger.



Fess Parker

Fun for All

Bourbon & Boone / Pork Tostadas Pairing ’til March 31


f you’ve forgotten that the Santa Barbara waterfront is home to a quietly cozy watering hole and patio with sweeping views, smiling service, and validated parking, it’s a good time to remember the Fess Parker DoubleTree’s hotel bar, known these days as The Set ( Cabrillo Blvd.;; [800] 879-2929). As part of an ongoing hotel promotion to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the hit TV show Daniel Boone (starring, of course, Parker), the bar is now pouring the Bourbon & Boone, a mix of Cutler’s Artisan Spirits’ booze with sweet maple syrup, spicy muddled jalapeños, lemon juice, and soda water.“It’s a little sweet and little spicy at the same time,” explained the hotel’s Beth Olson, who recommends pairing it with the sweet and smokey pulled-pork tostadas on the menu, also existing in the amply spiced yet nicely sweet range. The package — which includes the drink and dish for two

along with a bottle of Fess Parker Winery wine and a room for $189 until April 30 — combines Boone’s Kentucky ancestry (the bourbon), Parker (he loved spice, and there’s even a Fess-style tuna melt on the menu), and Santa Barbara, for Cutler’s is made just a few blocks away in the Funk Zone. And speakDRINK UP: The Fess Parker Doubleing of that ’hood, the hotel Tree is now serving the Bourbon & is also offering the SIP & Boone cocktail, made from Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, jalapeños, maple SUP package: two-for-one syrup, and more. tastings at seven Funk Zone wineries and kayak or stand-up paddle board rentals for two plus a room for $169 until May 31. “You can literally walk to both things if you wanted,” said Olson of the resort’s proximity to both the Funk Zone and the Santa Barbara Harbor. The deals come on the heels of the hotel’s recent touch-up of every one of their 360 rooms, which they powered through in less than four months.“It was the world’s fastest renovation,” said Olson, but she was quick to note that while the hotel spent $7 million or so focused on the tourists, the Fess Parker is just as friendly to midday — Matt Kettmann locals as to its overnight customers.



slab of white meat behind the fish counter at Whole Foods caught my eye.“What’s that fish there?” I asked. “That’s paiche. You want a piece?” I was looking for something new, and with the Chilean sea bass and king salmon at over twice the price, I decided to give it a try. Good move: The paiche was delicious. Later I learned it is healthy and sustainable. Paiche (pronounced pie·chay) is raised in ponds in the Amazon rain forest by a Peruvian company named Amazone. Its product is imported by the U.S. company ArtisanFish and sourced by the green-buying fish brokers at Whole Foods. Paiche is raised without antibiotics, vaccines, or hormones and is free of mercury and metals. Containing 20 grams of protein per 100 gram serving, paiche is comparable to beef fillet and chicken breast but with a lot less fat (1 gram) and calories (89). Paiche is high in omega-3 oils with a favorable ratio to omega-6s (1:1). Compare that to another “white meat,” the pork chop, which has 19.3 grams of protein, 20 grams of fat, a poor omega ratio, and 260 calories. Thanks, but I’ll take the paiche. Arapaima gigas is one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world, with the biggest of the beasts stretching to 9 feet and weighing upward of 400 pounds. It is a prehistoric finfish, whose lineage branched off 220 million years ago in the late Triassic. Dinosaurs probably ate the ancestral paiche, and now the fish is even hunted by jaguars in the wild. An unusual feature of this torpedo-shaped fish is that they

A Healthy Sustainable Fish for the Future by Kevin Bailey




t the end of the long and curvy Jalama Road, where sharp gusts and cold breakers chip away at the corner of California, exists a world-famous hamburger stacked with lean beef, fresh-cut veggies, and pickle chips and slathered with secret sauce. This March marks the 35th anniversary of the Jalama Burger™, a simple comfort so coveted its creator trademarked it. “Yeah, that’s my wife, Kathy’s, invention,” says Don Eittreim, 79, owner of the Jalama Beach Store & Grill. Kathy Eittreim passed away early last year, leaving her husband of 58 years and one of their five children (plus various grandkids, of which they have nine) to run the small beachfront café and camping-supply store. “She talked me into buying this place back in 1978,” remembers Don. “She knew we could create something special out here.” Exposed to open ocean and all the weather that comes with it, Eittreim’s outpost is located at Jalama Beach County Park, roughly 20 miles from Lompoc and 60 from downtown Santa Barbara. For decades, Jalama has been a destination for surfers, windsurfers, beachcombers, fans of wildlife, and families who like adventuresome camping without severing all ties to civilization. Some days, Jalama’s bitter cold and blowing 50 knots with stinging rain. Others, it’s tranquil and azure with a view to the edge of the planet. Every day — except for Thanksgiving and Christmas — the grill is open, offering a sizable menu of breakfast, lunch, and early dinner. The burgers are its best sellers. Says Vaughn Montgomery, 36, whose family has been making weeklong holiday camping trips to Jalama every year since before he was born: “For a wave-beaten, sun-blinded, windblasted soul — still high from surfing and the long walk back to camp — to sit there on that still patio and sink into a Jalama Burger, especially with a can of cold beer, is enough to make the saltwater run out of your nose onto the lettuce and onion!” While a lengthy campout could very well turn an American standard into a transcendent meal, foodies on a mission need not commit to picturesque visions of nasal drainage to taste the Jalama Burger experience. There might be a secret to what’s inside, but this burger’s got day trip written all over it. — Keith Hamm

t’s been a busy year for Jen Baron. Since launching Girls Rock S.B. (GRSB) in the fall of 2012, the 33-yearold mother of one has been charging full steam ahead in an attempt to get her newborn nonprof off the ground. Initially founded as a music camp to help empower young girls, GRSB has grown leaps and bounds since its inception. Now, in addition to summer-camp intensives, Baron is hosting year-round after-school programs for girls ages 6-17 that include semi-private music lessons, band practices, deejaying, ’zine making, and much, much more. “While we’re a music program for girls, that’s not really our core mission statement,” explained Baron over coffee last week. “We’re a self-empowerment program; we’re a self-confidence-building program. Music is the delivery system to facilitate it.” A longtime songwriter and Santa Barbara native, Baron admits that she was never inclined to share her own music growing up, due to fear and low selfesteem. “I had all these feelings about not being good enough,” she said. “But over the course of my dad being sick and him encouraging me to record my music, and

going into a studio and hearing people tell me they liked my music, I really started to believe in myself in a way I had never done before.” Spurred by her own experience, Baron tapped into the Girls Rock Camp Alliance (GRCA), an international support group that promotes female empowerment through music. Not long after, she was on a plane to Georgia to attend the annual GRCA conference. Six weeks later, GRSB was born. Currently, the nonprofit boasts more than 100 unpaid volunteers, who do everything from teach guitar and songwriting to lead workshops on media literacy and “punk rock yoga.” This Saturday, the girls of GRSB will host their second annual benefit at the Marjorie Luke Theatre. Titled Push, the evening-length performance event is a cross-section of live music, dance, and silent auction.“It’s like Cirque du Soleil meets a killer rock concert,” Baron said. Participating dance groups include Ventura’s Airealistic Circus and Flying School, the Montecito School of Ballet, nebula Dance Lab, Luminario Ballet, Fusion Dance Company, Invertigo Dance Theatre, and Studio B Dance. Bands on the bill range from singer/

songwriters like Jamey Geston, Brandi Letini, Kate Graves, and Sophie Rose to full-on bands like Stolen Thunder, Bear and Anchor, and The Fire Department. S.B. dancers Robin Bisio and Kaita Lepore will also perform. “What I love to do as an artist, and what I’m trying to encourage our girls to do, is to push the boundaries of what you think you’re capable of doing, of what you think is possible in art,” she explained. “Our show is all about going against the grain, and that’s what makes it unique. That’s what makes it stand out.” Girls Rock S.B. presents Push at the Marjorie Luke Theatre ( E. Cota St.) on Saturday, March 22, at 7 p.m. A silent auction to raise funds for the organization takes place at 6 p.m. For tickets and more about GRSB, visit — Aly Comingore








Kenny Rogers

L L O RTHE DICE I first encountered Kenny Rogers’s “The Gambler” when my high school history teacher wrote the lyrics in the back of my junior yearbook. Like any words of wisdom delivered to a 16-year-old, his message was met with a bewildered “Huh?” before quickly dissolving into a mental sea of fast-food cravings and Blink- bass tabs; I was oblivious to the value and significance of the Gambler’s words. Rogers’s solo career was launched by the song “Lucille,” a Billboard Country Chart topper that gave the singer some much needed traction after the breakup of The First Edition, with whom Rogers enjoyed a reasonably successful 10-year run. In regard to knowing when to run, however, Rogers’s career has been more of a marathon than a sprint. Not only was he voted America’s favorite singer of all time (in a 1986 joint poll by USA Today and People Magazine); his appearance on The Muppet Show in 1979 remains one of the show’s finHEADLINES est musical moments. Puppet show appearances aside, though, Rogers’s résumé includes some serious accolades: countless AMAs and CMAs, multiple Grammy Awards, 130 million in record sales, and a critically acclaimed performance in the 1980 television special Kenny Rogers as The Gambler. Rogers’s legacy is, no doubt, cemented in his work ethic, exemplified by the length and breadth of a career that’s spanned nearly 60 years, 30 number-one singles, 32 studio albums, and more than two dozen acting roles. A vast and extensive repertoire has both obliged and provided Rogers with the opportunity to be relatively versatile, making it no coincidence that he is, by and large, credited with bridging the gap between country and pop music charts — something that most modern tank-topped country stars still fail to do. There are few songs that have proved as transcendent as “The Gambler,” and that’s a credit to Rogers. The Gambler’s wisdom has been heeded since the song’s release in 1978 because we, collectively, believe in Rogers. It’s a trust born of a 50-yearlong relationship. Kenny Rogers plays Chumash Casino Resort ( E. Highway , Santa Ynez) on Thursday, March 20, at 8 p.m. Call (800) 248-6274 or visit for tickets and info. —Jake Blair



The adage “Good things come to those who wait” has proved true for fans of Toad the Wet Sprocket. Nearly two decades after disbanding, the four original members have come back together and created a stunning album in New Constellation. The first single and title track is bright and full-bodied, proving that the group’s talent for creating tantalizing aural hooks has not diminished over the years. Time away has also seasoned the band’s musical sensibilities, highlighted in the delicate “Golden Age” and jazzy undertones of “Rare Bird.” Lyrically, the record is poetic, at times effervescent (“Life Is Beautiful”), occasionally devastating (“Enough,” “California Wasted”), and always thoughtful. “We will return …” Glen Phillips sings on “Golden Age” — and so they have, better than ever. Phillips gives a solo performance on Wednesday, March 26, at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club ( State St.). Call 962-7776 or visit for tickets and info. — Michelle Drown

The Visionary Company of Style Ganna Walska: Enemy of the Average, plus an associated lecture on Tony Duquette by Hutton Wilkinson. At Lotusland, Saturday, March 8. Shows through May 17. Reviewed by Charles Donelan

Dodie Rosekrans, and the genius interior decorator, set designer, and jeweler Tony Duquette. On Saturday, March 8, Lotusland presented a slide lecture by Hutton Wilkinson to accompany the exhibit, and Wilkinson, Duquette’s former business partner and an important decorator and designer in his own right, captivated the crowd at this sold-out event with sly humor, encyclopedic knowledge, and an awesome collection of images. As a sought-after decorator with an elite clientele, Wilkinson claims that he has “never had to do more than one house a year,” which is wonderful because it leaves him time to decorate his own home (which has been featured admiringly in Vanity Fair), give these charming talks, and write multiple books about his great friend and mentor, Tony Duquette. Through his lecture, which was often hilarious, Wilkinson illuminated the fascinating and inexplicably neglected subculture of fantasy and glamour that swirled around some of the world’s richest women beginning in the early 20th century and lasting into the 21st. Several members of the audience, clearly hip to the scene, arrived decked out in Duquette jewelry and were singled out for recognition by the speaker. The Duquette style mixes high and low recklessly, pairing priceless antiques with such detritus as repurposed cafeteria trays in pursuit of dazzling effects. Wilkinson characterized the sensibility that he shares with Duquette in terms of color by saying, “Coral to me is like white. It’s almost a neutral.” These Los Angeles artists came of age in the era of the surrealists. Once when Duquette’s wife, Elizabeth “Beegle” Johnstone, entered a Hollywood party with a variegated ivy leaf in her hair as a decoration, it so impressed Man Ray that he ran to get his camera and took her photo. Like the surrealists, their emphasis was on bringing something fantastic to life, or, as Wilkinson put it in describing Duquette’s film work, to portray “dreams caught in the net of reality.” Most interesting for those who dote on Lotusland were the suggestions Wilkinson made about how Duquette’s work may have influenced Ganna Walska, and there were several. First of all, Duquette created several fantastic private environments for himself, two of which — his 150-acre fantasy ranch in Malibu and his San Francisco temple for St. Francis — were subsequently destroyed by fire. Along with Dawnridge, the legendary Beverly Hills home that Duquette transformed into a tour de force of design gone wild, these three estates make up some of the most useful analogues available to those seeking to understand the context in which Madame Walska created her masterpiece in Montecito. In addition, Duquette was sometimes referred to as “Tony Abalone” for his profligate use of the shell, a gesture one sees repeated in Lotusland’s aloe garden, which is anchored by a white-bottomed abalone-shell pool. Wilkinson also emphasized Duquette’s passion for creativity and his undying enthusiasm for encouraging it in others, such as his dear friend Ganna Walska.“Beauty, not luxury,” Duquette was known to exclaim when people expressed shock that he would combine high-priced items with recycled refuse, and upon consideration, this credo is not at all a bad way to begin thinking about the stimulating strangeness of Ganna Walska’s creations, as well. This visionary company of style existed in a heroic era for fantasy, and Lotusland remains the greatest monument to their collective achievement.





DOUBLE DUTY: Violinist Joshua Bell plays in and conducts this Friday’s classical concert from the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.


Joshua Bell Plays with and Conducts Academy of St. Martin in the Fields by Charles Donelan


he combination of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields (ASMF) and violinist/conductor Joshua Bell is proving to be one of the most exciting and powerful alliances in contemporary classical music. And it’s not just about Bell’s status as a crossover superstar or the Academy’s long-standing reputation for flawless technique and historically informed performance. Rather, the unanimous acclaim this group has received has centered on the chemistry between the two. The passion and humility with which Bell participates alongside his musical colleagues has set off a sympathetic response in the orchestra, and the result has been an unbroken series of triumphs, both in the concert hall and on record. Bell and the Academy return to the Granada on Friday, March 21, for CAMA’s International Series. They will play works by Bach, Beethoven (his Symphony No. ), Saint-Saëns, and Schubert. I spoke with Bell by phone last week, and he reflected on his collaboration with the ASMF, on conducting while playing, and on the greatness of Bach and Beethoven.



In Santa Barbara, the program includes a Bach violin concerto. How would you describe your approach to Bach? Bach withstands so many different approaches. I mean, even Switched-On Bach [the synthesizer arrangements of Walter/Wendy Carlos] retains the beauty of his style, so it’s not like there’s only one right way to play his music. The beauty will still come through. Both the ASMF and I have been heavily influenced by early-music approaches, but that doesn’t mean we will jump into that style with both feet. The ASMF does, however, have a certain early-music sensibility, and that will affect it. You’ve had such success right away with this combined role of conductor and soloist. Should conductors be worried? Are musicians like you going to render them obsolete? No, that’s not going to happen. Orchestras do still need conductors. The fact that I’m not spending the entire concert standing on a podium waving a stick doesn’t mean that I don’t prep the orchestra in rehearsal just like any other conductor would. Good conductors know when to push and when to lay back. I’ve known so many great conductors that I’m still doing what I can to learn the craft of this role. But if you look back, the history of music makes it seem less strange — Beethoven himself was more than one thing. So one way I think about what I’m doing now is that I’m trying to bring out more than one side of Beethoven. That’s what I’m after. CAMA presents Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields at the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.) on Friday, March 21, at 8 p.m. For tickets and information, call 899-2222 or visit

Regina Carter Southern Comfort

What’s it like conducting and playing at the same time? How does it work? In concertos I stand up, and I conduct with the bow when I’m not playing. During symphonies I sit, but sometimes I stop playing to conduct. Being seated in a section allows me to feel more like we’re playing chamber music, which is how I like to approach it. How has your role as conductor influenced your experience of the music you play? The symphonies are the things that, as a soloist, I’ve not gotten to play. I used to travel the world playing concertos, and then I would sit and listen to the symphony. Now I play on both, and while it is exhausting, it is also very rewarding. Playing the Beethoven symphonies, for example, is a consummate experience for a musician because Beethoven speaks so directly to who we are as people.

Singer/Songwriter Returns to the Lobero with Smoke and Mirrors by Aly Comingore


hen the wellspring of inspiration runs dry, many artists find themselves returning to their roots. For singer/songwriter Brett Dennen, those roots are buried deep in the wilderness of Northern California, a place he grew up and still calls home. Following more than a year of touring behind 2011’s adorably upbeat Loverboy, the red-headed troubadour found himself at a crossroads of sorts.“I thought the last album was going to make me break through to a much bigger audience,” he explained via phone last week, “but I ended up just touring a lot. I wanted to keep touring; [eventually] all of the people I work with kind of decided that it was just time for me to disappear for a while.” Frustrated and confused, Dennen retreated to a cabin near his childhood home in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to FRESH STARTS: For his latest album, Brett Dennen returned reassess. Not long after, the songs started home to the mountains of Northern California to find coming. The result of Dennen’s retreat is his muse. The result is the sprawling, stripped-down, and last year’s Smoke and Mirrors, a beautiironically titled Smoke and Mirrors. fully stripped-down folksy offering that finds the singer at his most open and personable yet. On Thursday, March 20, Dennen returns some time off, I didn’t see it at first. But once I moved back to the Lobero Theatre with a full band in support of the up into the mountains, I was like, “Holy crap!” There was record. Below, he chats about growing up, letting go, and a whole life that I had completely forgotten about. And it’s a really good-quality life that’s just about taking care of taking risks. yourself and communing with nature and being an artist. I don’t think I knew you grew up near Yosem- I realized that sometimes I get too far away from that when ite. Were you big into the outdoors as a kid? I’m caught up with the work. Definitely.

I think I have a deeper connection sounds more stripped down compared to my last record, to my place in the world and how I fit in, but I also think but it’s really a lot more lush and a lot more full.

To this day, I feel emotion behind it and how we could build instruments way more comfortable out in the wild than I do in a city. around it to do nothing but support the vocals. Being outdoors, it’s almost like discovering your inner self. As a kid, to just be let loose was incredible. Did you guys talk about other albums you liked or even a certain vibe that you wanted to go Do you remember the point when you decided to after? Ya know, we never really talked about it that much. make music your career? When I was around 22 or I remember at one point he said to me,“Hey, Brett, I think 23, I knew that I wanted to pursue music, but as far back as we’re making two records here. I think we’re making a I can remember, I identified as an artist. I’ve been drawing big-sounding record that we need to just go for and knock and painting ever since I was really little, and I always just it out the park. But the other half is going to be this quiet, thought of myself as an artist. I was the kid in the family introspective record that we just need to keep really raw who was a good drawer.

I already was comfortable with the creative process, but it wasn’t New Noise presents Brett until I was out of college that I decided to give music a go.

GRAND OLE TIME: Ralph Fiennes plays a concierge suspected of foul play in Wes Anderson’s latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Movie Guide

Edited by Aly Comingore The following films are playing in Santa Barbara FRIDAY, MARCH 21, THROUGH THURSDAY, MARCH 27. Descriptions followed by initials — DJP (D.J. Palladino), JW (Josef Woodard) — have been taken from our critics’ reviews, which can be read in full at The symbol ✯ indicates the film is recommended.

Need for Speed (132 mins.; PG-13: sequences of reckless street racing, disturbing crash scenes, nudity, crude language)

Reviewed on page 55. Camino Real (2- D)/Metro 4 (2-D)

✯ The Past (130 mins.; PG-13: mature thematic material, brief strong language) At some point during this movie, patience will be tried. Maybe it will be the scene with Fouad (Elyes Aguis), the mysteriously troubled son of Samir (Tahar Rahim), who is the new boyfriend of Marie (Bérénice Bejo), at least from the point of view of Ahmad (Ali Mosaffa), Marie’s ex-husband who has arrived from Iran to complete a divorce decree. All we know is that the child is a screaming, thieving, and devious mess, and it takes much unraveling of what seems like a major melodramatic love triangle (it’s actually more like a trapezoid) before we completely sympathize with the frantic kid. And then we want more. This is the point of Asghar Farhadi’s new film, which seems poised between ethnicities and moral universes in much the same way his previous film, A Separation, was. But The Past is much more like a French New Wave film updated to a multiethnic present, set in some remote Paris arrondissement where film crews and tourists rarely visit. Even better, the film grinds along with its emotional vexations to the very edge of soap opera yet never abandons the rich themes suggested by its title. Maybe it’s not Proust, but The Past closely examines the uses and betrayals of what’s come before. The cast is impeccable. Ahmad and Samir become doppelgängers alongside Marie and her daughter Lucie, played by the great young actress Pauline Burlet. The mirrors reflect personal histories, but

Diogo Morgado takes on the role of Jesus in this epic tale of the great leader’s birth, crucifixion, and resurrection.

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): “When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet,” says Buddhist nun Thubten Chodron.“You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time.” That’s sound advice for you, Aries. You are almost ready to plant the metaphorical seeds that you will be cultivating in the coming months. Having faith should be a key element in your plans for them. You’ve got to find a way to shut down any tendencies you might have to be an impatient control freak. Your job is simply to give your seeds a good start and provide them with the persistent follow-up care they will need.

(June 21 - July 22): During her 98 years on the planet, Barbara Cartland wrote 723 romance novels that together sold a billion copies. What was the secret of her success? Born under the sign of Cancer the Crab, she knew how productive she could be if she was comfortable. Many of her work sessions took place while she reclined on her favorite couch covered with a white fur rug, her feet warmed with a hot water bottle. As her two dogs kept her company, she dictated her stories to her secretary. I hope her formula for success inspires you to expand and refine your own personal formula — and then apply it with zeal during the next eight weeks. What is the exact nature of the comforts that will best nourish your creativity?

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): In T. S. Eliot’s poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” the narrator seems tormented about the power of his longing. “Do I dare to eat a peach?” he asks. I wonder what he’s thinking. Is the peach too sweet, too juicy, too pleasurable for him to handle? Is he in danger of losing his self-control and dignity if he succumbs to the temptation? What’s behind his hesitation? In any case, Libra, don’t be like Prufrock in the coming weeks. Get your finicky doubts out of the way as you indulge your lust for life with extra vigor and vivacity. Hear what I’m saying? Refrain from agonizing about whether or not you should eat the peach. Just go ahead and eat it.




(Apr. 20 - May 20): “Thank you, disillusionment,” says Alanis Morissette in her song “Thank U.” “Thank you, frailty,” she continues. “Thank you, nothingness. Thank you, silence.” I’d love to hear you express that kind of gratitude in the coming days, Taurus. Please understand that I don’t think you will be experiencing a lot of disillusionment, frailty, nothingness, and silence. Not at all. What I do suspect is that you will be able to see, more clearly than ever before, how you have been helped and blessed by those states in the past. You will understand how creatively they motivated you to build strength, resourcefulness, willpower, and inner beauty.

(July 23 - Aug. 22): The Google Ngram Viewer is a tool that scans millions of books to map how frequently a particular word is used over the course of time. For instance, it reveals that “impossible” appears only half as often in books published in the 21st century as it did in books from the year 1900. What does this mean? That fantastic and hard-to-achieve prospects are less impossible than they used to be? I don’t know, but I can say this with confidence: If you begin fantastic and hard-toachieve prospects sometime soon, they will be far less impossible than they used to be.


(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): The Tibetan mastiff is a large canine species with long golden hair. If you had never seen a lion and were told that this dog was a lion, you might be fooled. And that’s exactly what a zoo in Luohe, China, did. It tried to pass off a hearty specimen of a Tibetan mastiff as an African lion. Alas, a few clever zoogoers saw through the charade when the beast started barking. Now I’ll ask you, Virgo: Is there anything comparable going on in your environment? Are you being asked to believe that a big dog is actually a lion, or the metaphorical equivalent?

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Born under the sign of Scorpio, Neil Young has been making music professionally for over 45 years. He has recorded 35 albums and is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In early 1969, three of his most famous songs popped out of his fertile imagination on the same day. He was sick with the flu and running a 103-degree fever when he wrote “Cowgirl in the Sand,” “Cinnamon Girl,” and “Down by the River.” I suspect you may soon experience a milder version of this mythic event, Scorpio. At a time when you’re not feeling your best, you could create a thing of beauty that will last a long time, or initiate a breakthrough that will send ripples far into the future.


(May 21 - June 20): I bet your support system will soon be abuzz with fizzy mojo and good mischief. Your web of contacts is about to get deeper and feistier and prettier. Pounce, Gemini, pounce! Summon extra clarity and zest as you communicate your vision of what you want. Drum up alluring tricks to attract new allies and inspire your existing allies to assist you better. If all goes as I expect it to, business and pleasure will synergize better than they have in a long time.

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): There should be nothing generic or normal or routine about this week, Sagittarius. If you drink beer, for example, you shouldn’t stick to your usual brew. You should track down and drink the hell out of exotic beers with brand names like Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Ninja vs. Unicorn and Doctor Morton’s Clown Poison. And if you’re a lipstick user, you shouldn’t be content to use your old standard, but should instead opt for kinky types like Sapphire Glitter Bomb, Alien Moon Goddess, and Cackling Black Witch. As for love, it wouldn’t make sense to seek out romantic adventures you’ve had a thousand times before. You need and

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Actor Gary Oldman was born and raised in London. In the course of his long career, he has portrayed a wide range of characters who speak English with American, German, and Russian accents. He has also lived in Los Angeles for years. When he signed on to play a British intelligent agent in the 2011 film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, he realized that over the years he had lost some of his native British accent. He had to take voice lessons to restore his original pronunciations. I suspect you have a metaphorically comparable project ahead of you, Capricorn. It may be time to get back to where you once belonged.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Every now and then, you’re blessed with a small miracle that inspires you to see everyday things with new vision. Common objects and prosaic experiences get stripped of their habitual expectations, allowing them to become almost as enchanting to you as they were before numb familiarity set in. The beloved people you take for granted suddenly remind you of why you came to love them in the first place. Boring acquaintances may reveal sides of themselves that are quite entertaining. So are you ready and eager for just such an outbreak of curiosity and a surge of fun surprises? If you are, they will come. If you’re not, they won’t.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Before she died, Piscean actress Elizabeth Taylor enjoyed more than 79 years of life on this gorgeous, maddening planet. But one aptitude she never acquired in all that time was the ability to cook a hard-boiled egg. Is there a pocket of ignorance in your own repertoire that rivals this lapse, Pisces? Are there any fundamental life skills that you probably should have learned by now? If so, now would be a good time to get to work on mastering them.

WINE GUIDE Wine of the Week Carucci Wines Thompson Vineyard Syrah 2010

T H E I N D E PE N D E N T ’ S 1 1 T H A N N UA L

Calendar of Fundraisers VISIT



march 20, 2014


Like many a good garagiste winemaker, Orange County‑based Eric Carucci’s quest for winemaking started with asking lots of questions before only a trip to the vineyard to buy some fruit would deliver the answers he needed. Today, Eric, whose day job is in finance, and his wife Lindsay, a teacher, make steadily increasing amounts of wines from traditional Rhone Valley grapes, including a soft peach/salted honey‑imbued viognier and this 2010 syrah from Thompson Vineyard in the Los Alamos Valley, with an earthy, mossy nose that sinks deep into dark flavors like mocha and coffee. They’ll be pouring at the upcoming Southern Exposure weekend in Solvang, March 26‑28, so see or for more info.

The Restaurant Guy



Brophy’s to Buy Farmer Boy Restaurant JOHN DICKSON


he legendary Bennett family, owners of Brophy Brothers restaurant and On The Alley at the Santa Barbara harbor, are in escrow to buy Farmer Boy Restaurant, an icon in San Roque since 1958, at  State Street. In the last year, the Bennetts set sail from the harbor (before it needed dredging) to a variety of destinations around town. Last November, they were involved with the purchase of the Cliff Room bar at  Cliff Drive on the Mesa. Last January, they took over  State Street, the former home of Maggie’s at State and A. The same month, they partnered with the purchase of Arch Rock Fish restaurant at  Anacapa Street.

Spring 2014, 330+ Classes Something for Everyone! Classes start April 7! Register now! OH BOY: The family behind Brophy Bros. is eyeing the purchase of Farmer Boy restaurant on upper State Street.


Table at  East Anapamu Street was sold. Last week, the new owners closed The French Table and, in its place, opened the Mediterranean restaurant Piano Gastrolounge, with a whole new menu. For more information, call 882-0050. Thanks to reader Brendan for the tip.

WOK ON THE WILD SIDE OPENS IN ISLA VISTA: While restaurant hunting in Isla Vista over

the weekend, I discovered that Wok on the Wild Side opened at the end of January at  Embarcadero del Mar. Isla Vista’s only Chinese restaurant features Sichuan-style food. For more information call 259-1415.

SNAP CHOW: Before you had a chance to Snapchat with your friends about Betos Subs, which had a grand opening on March 6 at  De la Guerra Plaza, the restaurant went out of business 9 days later, setting a new local record. Previous winners of our Flash in the Pan award for shortest longevity include Little Cantina (one month at  E. Cota St.) and Snack Shack (two months at  State St.). MARKET MERGER: Safeway, Vons, and Albertsons are merging in a $9.4 billion dollar deal. FREE RANGE: Reader Cris let me know that the

Chicken Ranch restaurant at  North Fairview Avenue in Goleta has completed a move to a much larger space immediately next door.

SILVERGREENS UPDATE: Silvergreens restaurant at  Chapala Street has launched a new “Proteins Greens & Grains” menu. The new menu features five proteins, five greens, and five grains that diners can mix and match. “Eating a balanced meal should not be boring or bland,” said Jay Ferro, owner of Silvergreens.“Our Proteins Greens & Grains menu is a fun new way to eat dinner. It’s designed to bring variety to our guests while making it easy and affordable to eat a healthy meal that combines taste and nutrition. There are over 125 different meal combinations our guests can create from this menu alone.”

On April 10, 2014, Sage Point Lender Services, LLC, as duly appointed Trustee WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH, CASHIER’S CHECK/CASH EQUIVALENT drawn on a state or national bank, cashier’s check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a cashier’s check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state, or other form of payment authorized by 2924h(b), (Payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States). The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to satisfy the obligation secured by said Deed of Trust with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of

the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. All right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN BELOW MENTIONED DEED OF TRUST Executed by: LASZLO PETRUSKA AND AGNES ASZTALOS, HUSBAND AND WIFE AS COMMUNITY PROPERTY Recorded on March 14, 2006, as Instrument No. 2006‑0020144, of Official Records, in the office of the County Recorder of Santa Barbara County, California Date of Sale: April 10, 2014 at 01:00 PM Place of Sale: at the main entrance to the County Courthouse, 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 941 VIA NIETO, SANTA BARBARA, CA 93110 APN# 065‑550‑18‑00 The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Sale is $612,250.28.

The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the County where the real property is located. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to the return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 855‑ 880‑6845 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. NATIONWIDEPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 2720‑010403‑F00. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
