Kyle Abraham / Abraham.In.Motion Pavement

MacArthur “Genius” Award-winning Choreographer

Kyle Abraham, Artistic Director TUE, APR 22 & WED, APR 23 / 8 Pm UCSB CAmPBEll HAll


$35 / $19 UCSB students

“Abraham has created a work of great subtlety and beauty.” The New Yorker Inspired by the neighborhoods of his youth, John Singleton’s 1991 film Boyz n the Hood and W.E.B. Dubois’ classic essay “The Souls of Black Folk,” Pavement pays comedic homage to the bold Kriss Kross/backward jeans/ hi-top fade era in hip-hop, while reflecting on the growth and loss of Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods. (Mature content due to language.) Supported in part by the Cohen Family Fund of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan

Philip Glass Ensemble Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bête) Film by Jean Cocteau Music by Philip Glass Conducted by Michael Riesman WED, APR 30 / 8 Pm /GRAnADA THEATRE $45 / $30 / $20 / $18 all students A Granada facility fee will be added to each ticket price


“This is the best sort of film music.” The New Yorker Philip Glass’ interpretation of Jean Cocteau’s masterpiece La Belle et la Bête is his most deeply personal and romantic. For this production, Glass removed the film’s soundtrack and replaced it with his own musical score played live by the Philip Glass Ensemble. The dialogue is also performed live by vocalists who are synchronized with the actors in the film.

When we asked Mark Turner and Caitlin Fitch, who snapped photos for our Summer Camp Guide this week, whether they’d had the camp experience themselves, we got mixed results. “I was awake the whole first night, freaking out,” said Turner, “because the counselors told us a Peeping Tom troll lived there that would smell us and follow our scent all the way home.” Fitch answered, “Summer camp? Heck yeah! I wish I could play four square, swim in the pool, and make moss fairy houses all day, every day!” They’ll have a new summer remembrance soon — hopefully a good one — as August is their wedding month. Pretty exciting? “That’s really exciting!” they both agree.

by KELSEY BRUGGER, TYLER HAYDEN, LYZ HOFFMAN, MATT KETTMANN, and NICK WELSH, with INDEPENDENT STAFF ADULT ENTERTAINMENT: After the weekend, Foot Patrol Officer Mark Ward called Isla Vista “the Disneyland for rioters, but you don’t have to pay to get in.”

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

Michael Stinchfield — who police said held two women against their will in his 1724 Garden Street home for hours as he physically assaulted them with a baseball bat and guitar strap — entered no-contest pleas to four felony charges this week and was sentenced to eight years in state prison. The incident took place in November 2012 as 57-year-old Stinchfield — once a successful Santa Barbara businessperson before gaining a reputation for violence and intimidation — was actively renovating a commercial property on lower State Street with plans to open a restaurant.

News of the Week

The Deltopia Disaster Students and Visitors Turn Isla Vista Upside Down



hen cell phone footage of a near-riot instigated by a man jumping on top of moving cars went viral just weeks before Deltopia, authorities started to sweat. Their unease proved justified Saturday night when utter chaos plagued Isla Vista streets as hundreds of people rioted during what’s become an annual mega party. A number of them chucked bottles, bricks, and rocks directly at law enforcement officials, leaving one UCSB police officer with a split forehead and four Sheriff ’s deputies with deep lacerations to their hands. Often considered the doppelgänger of I.V.’s infamous Halloween party, Deltopia led to more injuries, arrests, and damage this year than last fall’s October attraction; police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse crowds during a scene heavy with, as one student put it, an “us versus them” mentality. A near-institution, Halloween now shuts down streets and is organized months in advance, and it proved relatively tame last year. Despite Halloween’s “drain on money and resources,” said UCSB police spokesperson Sgt. Robert Romero, “it looks like [Deltopia’s] going in that direction.” On Saturday, an aerial photograph indicated 25,000 people packed the streets to participate in “hooliganism,” said Sheriff Bill Brown when he reported to the Board of Supervisors Tuesday morning. Among a detailed list of statistics, Brown said a 17-year-old Los Angeles male swung a backpack stuffed with full liquor bottles at a UCSB police officer’s face — knocking him to the ground and cutting him above the eyebrow — who sought to grasp him after he witnessed the suspect in a fight. This altercation drew the attention of an increasingly “unruly” crowd. Desmond Louis Edwards has been charged with mayhem (the legal term for maiming a victim) and assault on a police officer, among other felony counts. He will be tried 10

as an adult, d l and d iff convicted, d h his sentence willll range from probation to 12 years in state prison. Some students cried foul at the five large, university-funded surveillance cameras that cropped up last week, claiming the installation lacked transparency and was done hastily. The footage is still being reviewed by the Sheriff ’s department. (In February, the university installed two cameras near the Isla Vista Theater following two sexual assaults.) The mobile but sturdy cameras are expected to be removed next week. Also new this year, the county enforced its festival ordinance — in place for years — which allows officers to issue citations to those playing music loud enough to attract a crowd unless they obtained a proper permit (no one did). People were informed of this law a few days prior — another hurried move, said UCSB student representative Alex Moore. Open discussions are now happening, he said, “however, it’s a little late.” Officers issued 11 tickets and reportedly gave warnings first. The free-for-all would escalate for four or five hours, requiring 106 “mutual aid” law enforcement officers to be called in by the Sheriff ’s department at the last minute, supplementing the 130 initially assigned. The Santa Barbara Police Department provided 30 officers, and other agencies, including Search and Rescue volunteers, came from as far south as Oxnard and as far north as San Luis Obispo. Noting the endless criticisms possible from a “Monday-morning armchair perspective,” Brown commended his officers. He added mob behavior is not unique to Isla Vista, citing two recent examples of civil unrest — one was against police-involved shootings and the other followed the loss of a game — and a study that indicates mob violence is shown to induce “selfgenerated” euphoria. Following the sheriff ’s report, nd District Supervisor Janet Wolf asked Brown why there were no road closures — a tactic used at Halloween — when the board had passed a reso-

l lution a week k prior to authorize h them. h Brown responded, “You can argue it both ways,” claiming that if you put up parking restrictions, it creates more space for people to party. Plus, the board passed it relatively late, he said. Wolf also noted UCSB’s policy to handle arrested students seems “ambiguous.” UCSB does not automatically discipline students convicted of misdemeanors or felonies that occur off campus. In some off-campus cases, university administrators review the incident and determine if university action is warranted. There were seven expulsions in 2011-2012; five in 2012-2013; and none so far this year. Both officials and students have claimed the delinquency stemmed from out-of-towners who flock to the “attractive nuisance,” or unofficial bash, driven by the Internet’s “word of mouth.” Brown’s facts somewhat confirmed that buzz. Approximately 66 percent of those arrested identified themselves as from out of the area. On Saturday, of the 130 people arrested — an 83 percent increase from last year — five were for violent crimes. Sixteen were UCSB students, 10 were SBCC students, and 36 attended a school outside the county. More than 250 people were issued citations, most of which were for being drunk in public or a minor in possession. Two tickets were given for an overcrowded balcony (a balcony collapsed last year, leaving several injured). Further, 9-1-1 received 520 calls, and 50 people were transported for medical treatment. (District Attorney Joyce Dudley said she’d estimate about 40 percent of cases from Halloween involved a UCSB or SBCC student.) “[Some of the students] felt that their rights had been violated in this crackdown,” said Alex Moore, internal vice president of UCSB Associated Students. “Does that excuse what happened? No, not at all.” Speaking before the supervisors on Tuesday, Moore said he wanted UCSB students to take responsibility for their part, and he also called for a grand jury to conduct a third-party investigation of the event. ■

The 48-year-old man who punched a 71-year-old man during an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in 2012 was sentenced to eight years in state prison on 4/4. Santa Barbara resident Doug Stekkinger (pictured) struck the elderly victim after a quarrel over whether or not Stekkinger’s dog was allowed inside the meeting room at the Veterans Memorial Building. Despite a “well-stated” request by his public defender for residential treatment rather than prison time, the judge handed down eight years, of which Stekkinger will serve at least six. Thirty-five-year-old Travis Rosenblatt was taken into custody on 4/3 at his residence on the 1400 block of Las Positas Place. Rosenblatt was wanted for an armed robbery he allegedly committed at a gas station in February 2013. The Sheriff’s department’s Special Enforcement Team surrounded the residence at 5 a.m., and after an approximately two-and-a-half-hour standoff, Rosenblatt surrendered. The arrest was a result of newly available DNA evidence, explained Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. In 2006, Rosenblatt was convicted of committing a bank robbery. Mireille Miller-Young — the UCSB professor charged with misdemeanor theft, battery, and vandalism last month after allegedly taking an antiabortion protester’s sign, destroying it, and injuring a protester in the process — pleaded not guilty on 4/4. Miller-Young didn’t appear in court but was represented by her lawyer, Catherine Swysen, who declined to comment on the case. The next hearing is scheduled for 5/1.

101 Pollution Buffer

By a vote of 5-to-2, the Santa Barbara City Council approved new regulations guiding new development proposed within 250 feet of Highway 101 — citing health and safety considerations — but not banning it outright, as was first proposed. The proposal drew fire from some community residents who noted that the city’s guidelines were the weakest in the state or the county. Steve Johnson, owner of an affected property on West Figueroa Street, said every other regulating government entity limits development within 500 feet of the freeway. Citing his PhD in mathematics, Johnson said the consultant who concluded 250 feet would be adequate, given Santa Barbara’s unique meteorological and traffic conditions, got his calculations wrong. If the right numbers were plugged in, Johnson said, Santa Barbara would have a 1,000-foot buffer. City planners acknowledged the consultant erred in the narrative portion of his report, but that his modeling numbers that indicated the relative risk of different exposure levels was solid. The particulates emitted by freeway traffic have been linked to heart disease and cancer. But because newer cars are burning cleaner — not to mention Santa Barbara’s ocean breezes — the council majority concluded the 250-foot guidelines would suffice. Developers will be required to include physical barriers and plantings to screen residents from freeway-borne pollutants. Also required will be double-paned windows and air-filtration systems. Councilmember Dale Francisco argued such a regulation, however softened, was unnecessary; most people understand proximity to the freeway is less than desirable. Councilmember Cathy Murillo — who agrees with Francisco on little — also voted against the regulation but, in her case, because it would make the — Nick Welsh development of affordable housing more difficult.

Pini countered that only the face of the building was under construction and that none of the interior space of the 11 units were directly affected. Pini accused City Hall of waging a “vindictive” campaign against him, noting that the power was turned off on the Thursday right before a four-day weekend, meaning no city employees were available for discussion.

COUNTY If you see smoke over the mountains for the next few weeks, don’t freak out: You’re most likely seeing evidence of a controlled burn being conducted by a Los Padres National Forest team. The goal of these fires is to eliminate the piled brush and vegetation that’s been recently cut in the Santa Barbara Ranger District. The bushes will be burned to reduce hazardous fuels and enhance the health of the forest, and only when the weather conditions are deemed safe.

The Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) recently received a $2.6 million state grant, which it will put toward a crisis stabilization unit to divert mentally ill individuals from emergency rooms, a crisis residential facility where patients could spend up to 30 days, and a mobile crisis team based in Lompoc. That award comes on the heels

of an $8.3 million state grant that the department is using to establish triage teams throughout the county. The California Coastal Commission on 4/10 will hear an appeal of the County Board of Supervisor’s approval of the Paradiso del Mare development project a half-mile west of Bacara Resort. While commission staff has recommended denying the appeal, attorney Marc Chytilo, who is representing a coalition of environmental groups opposed to the project, is encouraging community members to attend the meeting and voice their opposition in hopes the commission will override the staff recommendation. Organizers of this year’s Lucidity Festival have teamed up with the county’s Public Health Department and an environmental consulting company called Sudbusters to create a dishwashing pilot program in the name of sustainability and reduced waste. Previously forced to use “single use” plates mandated by current health and food codes, festival leaders say they hope to prove that dishwashing can be a sanitary and viable option in a big event setting, and they’re working with Assemblymember Das Williams’s office to reform the outdated section of food-service legislation by 2016.



Cash Caution County Hopeful but Guarded About This Year’s Budget

BUTTING HEADS: Sheriff Bill Brown listened to Supervisor Peter Adam speak at a budget meeting on Tuesday. The two are at odds when it comes to Adam’s Measure M, which Brown and others have said “would cripple law enforcement.”


BY LY Z H O F F M A N autious optimism was the name of the game at this week’s three-day workshop on the county budget, which saw the heads of the 23 county departments speak to the supervisors about how their organizations have fared this fiscal year — set to end June 30 — and how they will manage in the next. Although this week’s hearings were meant to let the departments’ requests marinate — a recommended budget will come in May, with final approval in June — if the CEOs’ presentations and the board’s remarks were any indication, treading lightly will continue in 2014-2015. County staff at this meeting, on the heels of a shorter session last month, talked about how the county is rebounding in the wake of the recession, including inroads in paying down the county’s $800 million unfunded pension liability and saving money for jail operations in preparation for the North County facility’s opening in 2018. But the potential passage of Supervisor Peter Adam’s Measure M, and the consequential $18 million-$21 million that would have to be dedicated to maintenance, could threaten the county’s modest progress, and the ordinance’s possible effects were the main subject of Wednesday’s meeting, as they were at the March meeting. Significant attention was also paid to the statuses of the Sheriff ’s department, Public Health, and the department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS). Overall, most of the 23 departments requested more than $26 million above their recommended budgets. 

two departments “two of the most challenging” he has dealt with in his 12 years as a government executive. For ADMHS, although “some internal challenges” remain, its years of struggle may be in the rearview mirror, Wada said, largely due to several timely grants and increased MediCal revenue from the Affordable Care Act. The department’s recommended $92 million operating budget has been supplemented by a recent $2.6 million state grant (for a crisis stabilization unit, crisis residential unit, and a mobile crisis team) and $8.3 million state grant for countywide triage teams, The department’s plans for those services, as well as, among others, those for the homeless and foster kids with mental-health needs, will only require $800,000 from the county. “The services we provide at ADMHS are vital to our community,” Wada said. 

ADMHS: Dr. Takashi Wada, head of ADMHS

and Public Health, called the budgets for those

PUBLIC HEALTH: While the Affordable Care

Act has helped ADMHS, for Public Health it is creating “a mixture of opportunities combined with major uncertainties and potential risks,” Wada said, noting the challenges of enrolling and retaining MediCal patients. At least for 2014-2015, Public Health will shelve its plans to outsource its clinical lab services, Wada continued; the idea, raised in March, would have saved Public Health about $1 million annually but was unpopular with several supervisors. With a recommended operating budget of $75 million, the department asked the board for an extra $305,000 to hire employees for Animal Services and Hazardous Materials.

SHERIFF’S OFFICE: After speaking earlier

in the day about Deltopia, Sheriff Bill Brown said Tuesday that his organization — with an expected operating budget of $122.5 million — could use $3 million in extra money, but what is crucial now is about $615,000: $452,000 to temporarily make the Santa Maria branch jail a 24-hour facility; $107,000 for a “transition team” for the planned North County Jail; and $56,000 for a data analyst. Brown touted a 6 percent drop in violent crime, as well as the department’s $375,000 federal grant for dealing with panga boats and its $39 million state grant for a recidivism-reducing wing in the new jail. He said ongoing challenges include reinstating jobs lost during the recession and increasing staffing for the jail. “We’ve stopped the hemorrhaging,” he said.

The Goleta Union school board appointed Luz Reyes-Martin as interim trustee on 3/31. Reyes-Martin, who works for Goleta in the Neighborhood Services department, will serve on the board until December and is eligible to run for a four-year term in the November election. Superintendent Bill Banning said though there was a “strong pool of candidates,” the board’s decision was unanimous, and ReyesMartin was sworn in at this week’s board meeting. School boardmembers, city councilmembers, and state officials gathered 4/5 to celebrate the grand opening of the Franklin Service Center. Located at Franklin Elementary School, the center will provide the space for various resources — CADA, United Way, CalFresh, SBCC English classes, Planned Parenthood, cont’d page 12 



MEASURE M: If voters in June decide to

require the board to maintain county-owned roads, parks, and buildings at their current condition or better, the county could turn to several options, yet whether they would be enough to cover the $18 million-$21 million costs remains unclear. Ideas range from increasing revenue — asking voters in November to increase the hotel bed tax from 10 percent to 12 or 12.5 percent could generate about $1.5 million — and reducing the fleet of facilities to allocating discretionary funds incrementally (which is the funding scheme for the new jail) and applying for infrastructurespecific grants. An unpopular option involves making cuts to the General Fund, which could mean less money for public safety and social ■ services. april 10, 2014

fracking, well stimulation, and other “high-intensity” extraction techniques on unincorporated county land. Gathering at Alameda Park at 10 a.m., more than 100 people heard from Assemblymember Das Williams — who commended the Water Guardians’ grassroots efforts — and speakers Katie Davis and Rebecca Claassen. “This is not the conventional oil we’ve been getting for hundreds of years,” said Davis, adding that 7,000 new cyclic-steam-injection oil wells are in the works, which, if approved, would triple the county’s total greenhouse-gas emissions. To place the proposed ban on the ballot, volunteers must gather more than 13,000 signatures within about five weeks. Three barrels’ worth of oil leaked at Venoco’s Ellwood Onshore Oil and Gas Facility (EOF) in the early evening 3/29, according to a statement from the City of Goleta, which Venoco notified about the spill. Venoco staff reportedly spotted wet ground near the “heater treaters” within the EOF and linked it to a leak in a sixinch oil line connecting the heater treater with the hydrogen sulfide stripper. EOF and Platform Holly operations were stopped until early afternoon on 3/30, while the leak was fixed and a cleanup took place. The Fire Department was also alerted to the incident and made sure the spill was contained.

Baugh Humbug!

Rosemary Baugh (pictured), the 57-year-old woman who pleaded no contest to bilking 80-yearold David Dahan — a wealthy businessperson now suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s — out of more than $700,000, was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay a $500,000 fine, make restitution for an amount to be worked out in a later trial, undergo mentalhealth treatment, and stay away from Dahan’s residence. Baugh, who showed up in court pushing a walker and wearing a white, full-length dress and white pumps, is not facing jail time, because of a plea deal worked out at the urging of the victim’s family. That deal proved sufficiently controversial that a prior judge rejected it. Even so, Baugh’s attorney — Mark Saatjian — asked that the fine be reduced, noting that Adult Protective Services (APS) had interviewed the victim and found him to be “desirous” of maintaining the relationship that Baugh claimed lasted off and on for 27 years. Prosecuting attorney Brian Cota insisted that Baugh pay the full fine. “She should get every form of punishment we can give her,” he said. Baugh maintained that she and Dahan were lovers and that in recent years she served as his caretaker, as well. She said he wanted to take care of her after he died by providing her a mobile home. Family members, she said, objected, worried their inheritance might be at risk. Cota said Baugh’s life has been characterized by “sloth and greed” and disputed there was any evidence indicating the relationship was anything but casual. Likewise, he questioned the medical qualifications of the Adult Protective Service worker to render an opinion about Dahan’s mental state. Dahan was diagnosed with dementia in 2011; the APS interview took place in 2012. And in January 2013, Baugh and Dahan were married. Ten days later, Baugh filed for divorce, effectively clouding the resolution of Dahan’s considerable estate. Outside the courthouse, Baugh declined to discuss the case other than to indicate she plans to write about it, possibly — Nick Welsh in screenplay form, someday.

Adelante Charter School administrators were all smiles Tuesday night as boardmembers praised the staff’s report of their charter renewal petition. The school was formerly César Chávez Charter School, and many of the key players are still around to remember the “hard” renewal process four years ago that nearly shut down the K-6 school. “That is not the same school today,” said Adelante boardmember Jack Rivas. The sole area for improvement, boardmembers said, is that the school must match its racial and ethnic makeup to that of the district’s. Currently 94 percent of the 225 students enrolled are Latino, while 58.6 percent of district students are Latino.

A Guide to Shrimp Boy Scandal As Three Senators Face Prison Time, Bribery Once More Is Sacto’s Topic A


ot since August 1949, when superlobbyist Artie Samish blathered to Collier’s magazine about his unmatched power over Sacramento politicians, have matters of criminal corruption so preoccupied California’s capitol. Samish’s boast to journalists of being “the governor of the legislature,” nicely illustrated by a photo of him addressing a ventriloquist’s dummy named “Mr. Legislature,” ushered in a period of political reform, with regulations on lobbyists topping the list of changes. Now, reform proposals again are flying like pigeons in Capitol Park, as a new, and stillunfolding, scandal remains Topic A among political professionals, the cognoscenti, and other hacks. Here’s a tip sheet to follow the action:

A QUICK RECAP: In the early months of 2014, legal trouble surfaced for three of 40 state senators, all Democrats: A jury convicted Inglewood’s Rod Wright of fraud and perjury for lying about living in his district; the feds indicted Ron Calderon of Montebello for taking bribes in exchange for legislative action; and then the government charged San Francisco’s Leland Yee in a massive federal indictment, not only of trading favors for campaign cash, but also of, um, agreeing to act as middleman in an illegal $2 million arms deal, brokered between an undercover agent qua Cosa Nostra don and a terrorist group in the Philippines. We almost forgot: Yee is a big gun-control advocate. ENTER SHRIMP BOY: Yee met the New Jersey mafioso/agent through Keith Jackson, the senator’s fundraiser and bagman; he met the Tony Soprano character via a Chinatown gangster named Raymond Chow, a k a Shrimp Boy. The FBI case that resulted in Yee’s indictment last week started as an undercover investigation of Shrimp Boy, who was suspected in the 2006 murder of a Chinatown merchant named Allen Leung; until he was shot to death in front of his wife, Leung led a neighborhood benevolent association called the Chee Kung Tong. Soon after the killing, Chow was elected to replace Leung as “dragon head” of the legitimate group; then, authorities say, he began using it as a criminal front. For help with his new business, Shrimp Boy turned to a guy he thought was an East Coast gangster — in fact the same undercover agent for whom Yee later would promise to buy weapons. Completely conned, Chow paid the agent who’d infiltrated Chee Kung Tong as a “consultant.” THE DEAL GOES DOWN: When Chow introduced Jackson, Yee’s fundraiser, to the undercover agent, Jackson began soliciting money for his boss, in part to fuel his bid for secretary of state. You know, the office in charge of transparency for elections, campaign contribution, spending, and economic interest reports.



POWERFUL PUPPETEER: Lobbyist Artie Samish talks to “Mr. Legislature.”

The agent led Jackson and Yee to other undercover feds: a developer, a tech businessman, a medical marijuana entrepreneur — all fake and all wanting something. In private, Yee allegedly agreed to perform official actions for money. Among others: a proclamation honoring the Chee Kung Tong ($5,000); help securing a tech contract ($10,000); introductions to other lawmakers ($5,000); special-interest legislation ($10,000); and, finally, the arms deal. “Do I think we can make some money?”Yee allegedly told the alleged mobster. “I think we can make some money. Do I think we can get the goods? I think we can get the goods.” Yee and Jackson pleaded not guilty this week.


WHY IT MATTERS: Putting aside quaint notions like honesty in government, not to mention the entertainment value of the spectacle, the scandal has important political implications: Because all three senators have been “suspended” until their cases are resolved, and cannot participate in legislative business, Democrats for now lack the crucial two-thirds majority that, for better or worse, in recent years made Sacramento work relatively smoothly; Republicans are politically reborn, repositioned to block the budget and other fiscal measures. The specter of deadlocks, IOUs, unpaid vendors, and delayed checks for the old, the sick, and the poor looms again. The scandal also hands Republicans a unifying message for 2014. Teetering on irrelevance, the rejuvenated state GOP recently won upsets in several local elections. This mess may improve, if even slightly, their prospects. THE KEY RACE: The crowded contest for secretary of state represents a case study of the politics of the scandal. With Yee ruined, the front-runner is yet another Democratic senator, Alex Padilla of L.A. Among others, Dan Schnur, an ex-GOP operative running as an independent, will test the strength of the anti-corruption message: “There has been almost no meaningful effort on the part of the state’s political leaders to clean up the capitol’s culture of corruption,” he told reporters last week. “If you add up all the reforms that have been proposed over the last several weeks, they end up comprising almost ■ a complete fig leaf.”

The Death of Isla Vista? analysis

How the Deltopia Disaster Threatens a Once-Proud Partying Culture


GOOD OLE DAYS: The author (middle with shaved head and tie-dyed shirt, as seen on that fateful Isla Vista visit 20 years ago) believes collaboration between students, cops, UCSB, and county decision-makers is required to save I.V.’s unique culture before it’s stamped out for good.

I’m certainly biased, but many of my UCSB friends are the most well-rounded people I know, able to churn out a steady living while also appreciating the finer, fun things of this existence. And the older I get, the more I think that the latter may in fact be much more important than the former, but I may have never learned these things had it not been for Isla Vista. Unfortunately, that Isla Vista may be dead now, or at least limping along on life support, awaiting some miracle cure that no one’s invented yet. By the time I graduated in 1999, the culture was already seeming to shift, away from the hippie-driven, smile-

at-everyone-you-see vibe toward something more aggressive and hostile. Brawls were becoming more frequent, it seemed, and the rise of hip-hop (the music I grew up on in East San Jose, before it went mainstream) started to make everyone think they were “gangster”— quite often that translated to wealthy white kids trying to start trouble because they thought that’s what made people cool. Fast-forward to today, and Isla Vista is in the headlines, not for being a groovy place to kick it, but for rape and assault and cartel-level drug dealing (okay, maybe that hasn’t changed), and, they now say, riots. (I remain unsure whether it’s the riots that are shocking or that they had taken this long to happen, as it’s been 40-plus years since the town caught national attention for the politically motiWHEN GOOD PARTIES GO BAD: As Deltopia’s popularity surged vated unrest and bank burning of 1970.) While Isla Vista’s via social media, so did the attention of law enforcement on the partying ways have been the target of government policy event. This past Saturday, as seen above, the combination of drunk hammers for years now, this past weekend’s Deltopia just revelers, many reportedly from out of town, and heavy police lined up the final nails in the coffin. Even the most strident presence exploded into a riot. What better time to reassess the anti-authoritarians among us must appreciate that when rules governing Isla Vista? cops start getting pelted by bottles and bricks, the government will quell the culture that allowed this to happen.

For decades, people have complained ordinances are already in the works, I’m sure. that UCSB doesn’t care enough for the daily needs of the masThe authorities call Deltopia an “unsponsored party” that was sive student ghetto that’s grown up next door. As UCSB has fueled by anonymous instigators who used social media to lure developed some central Isla Vista properties in recent years, thousands of out-of-towners, who are now bearing the brunt of that argument may hold less water, and it’s unclear how much the blame for disrespecting Isla Vista, attacking officers, damag- a university should take on the role of a municipal government ing property, and starting fights. Plenty of that is certainly true, — and, beyond that, how that would have any effect on the partybut it’s a much more complicated milieu than that, and there is ing situation, anyway. But there is a more silent message out of UCSB that speaks plenty of blame to go around. It would be hard to argue that the County of Santa Barbara louder: the head-in-the-sand, nothing-to-see-here stance on powers that be should have done nothing over the years to curb how much their students love to party, both historically and such events as Floatopia, the original “unsponsored” seaside today. Frequently, magazines and websites list UCSB as a top bash, but closing the beaches during the day has only led to party school, and they identify certain events, like Halloween and people taking to the streets at night.

The curfew on loud tion there is. Admittedly, presenting that message in a way that doesn’t music may also be doing more harm than good, stifling creative entertainment opportunities while putting further emphasis on scare away potential professors, donors, strict students, and even stricter parents is challenging, which probably explains why it’s just getting wasted. And, as many are already wondering, what about the over- never been pursued. But there is a potentially game-changing whelming presence of law enforcement?

BY M AT T K E T T M A N N uring my senior year of high school, my buddies and I piled into our good friend’s big blue van, drove down the  from San Jose, and landed at “The Oasis,” a pad rented by the same friend’s older brother on the  block of Del Playa Drive in the heart of Isla Vista’s partying culture. At the time, many of us had been accepted into UCSB and other schools, but we hadn’t yet decided where to go when we graduated that next summer of 1995. Immediately after that trip — which retains a mythic status in our still-tight clique, so eye-openingly awash in beer and live music and near-sex and adult-like freedom — most of our minds were made up: UCSB was the school for us because that meant Isla Vista would be our home for the next four years. And so it went, a strikingly complete college lesson on life: how to study and work hard and how to play, often harder. Today, we are successful doctors, lawyers, journalists, filmmakers, and various other types of professional, which is a testament to the excellent educational opportunities provided by UCSB. But it was amid the kegs and bongloads of Isla Vista where we learned how to navigate the day-to-day situations of real life: meeting new people and sussing out those we could trust and those we could not; dealing with one’s neighbors, those you liked and those you couldn’t stand; throwing social gatherings and controlling the crowds, an effort in patience, tact, and teamwork; avoiding trouble, whether by skipping out on ill-conceived shenanigans or simply staying away from true troublemakers; talking to the cops and learning that there is value to law enforcement, who are mostly just normal people; and, when it came, we learned how to take our punishments like grown-ups (albeit with occasional financial help from mom and dad). Most importantly of all, we learned (or at least started to learn) how to balance the many competing extremes of our lives.

The Dog Agog

MONKEY SEE, MONKEY DON’T: When in doubt, you can always trot out Albert Einstein.

Why not? Everybody else does. Not only did Einstein midwife the atom bomb — profoundly redefining the dimension of global fear — but he was also crazy smart, had crazy hair, and left behind more pithy aphorisms than Oscar Wilde and Mark Twain combined. The quotation getting most traction these days has to do with the definition of insanity, which Einstein described as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” For the record, I am officially done with this one. It’s invoked in various garbled permutations by fully half the speakers at any government gathering in which the public is allowed to chime in. In that regard, it’s achieved the same level of abuse as, “That’s like trying to nail Jello to a tree,” or worse yet,“A camel is a horse designed by a committee.” I’d suggest this particular old horse has now been kicked to death so many times that if it were a cat, it would have used up all nine lives. More than that, it misses the mark. What’s really crazy is not doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the results to improve. Calling this to mind was last Tuesday’s county supervisors meeting, which mentalhealth advocates impressively “hijacked” (to borrow the description used by conservative gadfly and grumpy-pants Andy Caldwell) to talk about springing the nonviolent mentally ill from county jail and putting them in treatment. Because it’s about $20,000 cheaper to treat

someone than jail them — at least according to area mental-health advocates — the county could save up to $4 million a year by doing the right thing. And that number may be understating things. A spate of recent studies suggest that those incarcerated with serious mental illnesses tend to stay behind bars far longer than your so-called “average” inmate. At Rikers prison in New York, it’s a difference of 5-to-1, which, according to one study, makes the mentally ill three times more expensive to jail. The number of mentally ill behind bars is only going up. According to a study released by the Treatment Advocacy Committee, there are 356,268 seriously mentally ill inmates locked up in prisons and jails across the country. By contrast, there are 35,000 in state-run psychiatric facilities. When discussing the mental-health-care crisis, terms like “crazy” and “insane” are undeniably insensitive and loaded. I get it. But who among us doesn’t have the proverbial “crazy uncle in the attic,” or Norman Bates’s mom down in the basement. Far more loaded and insensitive, however, is how egregiously little we’ve done to address the issue in the past 30 years. In that time, grand juries have come and gone, issuing one urgent report after another, calling into question the wisdom, cost, effectiveness, and humanity of locking mentally ill people — who frequently have co-occurring substance-abuse problems — in county jail. In response, we’ve nodded our heads in dutiful

agreement only to keep locking them up. Other than the Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF) — which offers a criminally scant 16 beds reserved for those in the most acute of crises — there’s been a similarly acute shortage of treatment facilities. Mom-n-pop board-n-care facilities that traditionally provided imperfect haven for those in less inflamed distress have all but disappeared, caught in a terminal cross fire between escalating regulatory costs and diminishing reimbursement rates. In other words, blah, blah, blah, right? Wrong. We’re now in the moment of genuine opportunity. Because of the Affordable Care Act and the new, more expansive MediCal eligibility rules, there are now new and significant funding sources to help pay for treatment. People previously beyond the pale can now get help. County mental-health administrators are scrambling to take maximum advantage of this. Pushing them further than they might want to be pushed is a coalition of mental-health advocates, including Frank Thompson, who brings to the table 35 years of serious wheeling and dealing to imagine, finance, and build multiple affordable housing projects now operating throughout the county. For the past 18 months, Thompson has harnessed his considerable ingenuity on crafting a financially sustainable plan to create 350 units of new housing under the social-rehabilitation model, where those with mental-health and substance-abuse problems could get not just shelter but also a level of treatment not currently available. Thompson has identified 11 parcels of

county-owned land where five such housing pods — each with 50 rental units’ and 20 beds’ worth of more intense treatment — could be built at a rate of one every five years. For people just getting out of detox, it would provide a logical, necessary next step. Likewise for the fragile souls just getting out of the PHF unit. Typically, individuals struggling with chronic acute issues get sent to what the state colorfully classifies as “Institutes for Mental Disease,” or what county mental-health planners call “IMDs.” Naturally, no IMDs exist in Santa Barbara County, so we have to ship such patients elsewhere at a cost of $700 a night. We have contracts for 30 such patients at any time. If we had an IMD in county, the county could recover half that cost. Because we don’t, the county pays full freight. Thompson cites an avalanche of facts and figures to demonstrate his proposal is financially viable if the county donates the land, waives processing costs, and makes an annual contribution of a few hundred thousand dollars. It’s possible, I suppose, Thompson’s smoking woo-woo powder. But I doubt it. When you consider it will cost $17 million to run the new North County Jail — money which we do not have by the way — I’d say the supervisors should give Thompson’s proposal a long, hard look. It can’t hurt. To do otherwise would unhappily call to mind another one of Einstein’s many pithy observations.“Only two things are infinite — the universe and human stupidity,” he said. “And I’m not sure about the former.” — Nick Welsh

The End of the Party …


hen I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me,‘Look for the helpers.You will always find people who are helping.’” — Mr. Rogers All my thanks to everyone who took to the streets armed, not with broken bottles, but bags and brooms — from the night after the riots onward — and cleaned up the broken glass while inhaling tear-gas-dust debris. And to the people who tried to calm the situation, put out fires, keep people off cars, everything. And to the emergency medical personnel, you who put your safety at risk to help ensure ours, I’ve not even got enough words to properly express my gratitude. I hope you know how appreciated you are. There’s a thousand posts on the negatives, so I just want to point out that there were, are, and always will be people who are helping. The community isn’t dead; it’s not a festering shithole with no chance of redemption. There is still love here, and cooperation, and the spirit of community this town is, or ought to be, known for. I hope the news, from the Daily Nexus to national, reports on this, — Evan Crook, I.V. too.

Half Empty?


olitical scientist Rob Reich [] questions the fairness of donations to better public schools when poorer communities cannot raise as much money. This glass-half-empty perspective would restrain progress through charitable funding as long as there is even one school that might be left behind. When a community comes together to support its school, other schools benefit. If school improvements

are developed, funded, and proved with the help of a school foundation, the concept can then be adopted at other schools, with widespread benefits. The more affluent communities bear a larger share of the cost for this — Mike Schley, President kind of progress. Mountain View School Foundation, Goleta

Guilty Until Proven Innocent


heriff Bill Brown has found it necessary to terminate the two custody deputies charged with excessive force before their day in court has occurred. What happened to innocent until proven guilty? This has caused undo hardship to two men, and their families, who have given over 20 years of combined service to the sheriff ’s department and their community. And for what? For doing their job. The charges are based on a complaint filed by a convicted murderer and rapist to the NAACP. The custody deputies acted exactly how they were trained when dealing with a very violent and assaultive inmate. In addition, the inmate sustained no injury as a result of the altercation. What kind of a leader punishes his employees to the extent of termination before their day in court? The 400+ deputies in this county need a sheriff who is going to support them in the very dangerous and difficult job they do on a daily basis. Sheriff Brown has shown absolutely no support or concern for the well-being of these two fine men, one of whom is my son, who were doing nothing more than trying to go home safely at the end of their 12-hour shift. The future careers and livelihood of these good men and their families have been jeopardized, potentially forever, as a result of these charges. Shame on you, Bill Brown. — Diana Kirsch, Lompoc

For the Record

¶ An editing mishap introduced an error into our “Fukushima Fallout” story of March 27. That released strontium and plutonium have “disappeared” from the environment is untrue. Strontium-90 has a roughly 29-year half-life, plutonium-239 has a 24,100-year half-life, and plutonium-240 enjoys a 6,560-year half-life. However, it is believed that these toxins pose a threat only to those in the Fukushima area and thus are not part of Pacific-wide ocean-testing efforts. aPrIl 10, 2014

$3.5 Mil Just Chump Change

Unless, of course, you’re rich. The U.S. Supreme Court just ruled that you can contribute to (support, buy, bribe) as many politicians as you want. You can now donate up to $3.5 million per federal election cycle. I don’t mean you, reader, unless you’re one of Santa Barbara’s multimillionaires or billionaires willing to dump major bucks into the electoral sweepstakes. Why buy a racehorse when you can buy a candidate? Now that kind of money may sound like a lot to you and me, but it’s only spare change to the court’s resident buffoon, Justice Antonin Scalia. He cracked,“I don’t think $3.5 million is a heck of a lot of money.” Until last week, you could only spend a total of $123,200 in any federal election cycle. Now, according to the Supremes — or the usual 5-4 conservative majority — the sky’s the limit, anywhere in the land of the free, as long as you don’t give more than $5,200 to any particular favorite politician. You say you can’t afford to hand out any money at all to politicians? Too bad. But as a poor person, you still have the theoretical freedom to do it. Reminds me a bit of the famous remark by Anatole France: “In its majestic equality, the law forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets, and steal loaves of bread.” Predictions are that even the $5,200 limit will soon be lifted. Tagalong Justice Clarence

Thomas, who normally votes with Scalia, said he’s all in favor of it. Then it’s open season. Anyone could give the entire $3.5 million to a candidate or, heck, all the job-seekers he or she can afford. You might think Representative Lois Capps, running for reelection this year, would welcome with open arms what could be an outpouring of campaign dough. But she’s as outraged as anyone. She’s cosponsoring a Constitutional amendment to clarify that Congress and the states have the authority to pass campaign finance laws. By the way, be sure to vote. But not for the Supremes. You can’t. Scalia, Thomas & Co. are there for life. NEWS-PRESS ACCUSED: The Teamsters Union

is accusing the paper of unfair labor practices in the firing of photographer Mike Eliason, a member of the newsroom union’s contractnegotiating committee and an employee of the paper for 25 years. In its complaint to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the union said the Santa Barbara News-Press also secretly videotaped employees and “continues a pattern of intimidation and coercion of union supporters” while showing “extreme leniency” to anti-union employees for similar actions. As a result, the NLRB postponed a May 12 Santa Barbara hearing into previous unfair labor charges against the New-Press, pending investigation of the new complaint. Meanwhile,

This is our law school.

the N-P has advertised for two new photogs to replace Mike, but they are to be part-timers. (Why pay benefits, eh?) Also part of the controversy is Mike’s complaint to Cal/OSHA about mold allegedly affecting the newsroom.




In light of the sexting scandal involving the ex-undersheriff and the search-and-rescue public information officer (PIO) and their parking lot “kiss, grope, and fondle” sessions, readers may want to suggest the best parking lots for illicit trysts. Thenundersheriff Jim Petersen and ex-PIO Valerie Walston reportedly liked the lots at Costco, Kinko’s, and an Isla Vista apartment building. Now both of them are gone from their jobs (he abruptly retired), and county supervisors last week settled Walston’s sexual harassment, etc., suit for $30,000. Winners of the Favorite Parking Lot Cuddle-and-Coo Contest will be announced soon. KEILLOR THE RED: Garrison Keillor was in

town the other night, reminding us that even

if nostalgia isn’t what it used to be, it can still be fun. He stepped out onto the Granada stage decked out in red shoes and socks and a red tie, making us smile, then laugh at his jokes, and then sing along to familiar patriotic songs and the Beatles. In his mind, they represent our shared culture, sort of.“Santa Barbara is tidy,” he said in his funny, singsong-y way, meaning no offense.“You think you’re in Spain, but you ain’t. Santa Barbara is full of Midwesterners dressed up in tropical disguise.” At a reception afterward, Linda Hedgepeth told Keillor, “I have three heroes: my second husband, my plastic surgeon, and you.” For once, Keillor was speechless.

Louise Marie Moulton Hanson 1914 – 2014

Rancher, Environmentalist LOVE OF LAND: Louise Hanson always would say, “Ranchers were the first environmentalists.” By rights, ranchers and farmers are; they care for and groom the land so that it can give back to us all. Louise followed word with deed when she dedicated her ranch to an agricultural conservation easement.


BY L U N N C O U R S O N ouise always had an intuitive mind. As

a child, she would adjust whatever harness she could find to fit her pony to drive tandem with a big ranch mule. Off she’d go out into the wide-open spaces of Orange County with her dog aboard and possibly one of the other ranch children that she played with. She loved the outdoors, her pets, and the ranch she grew up on. It was her life. She learned fluent “ranch Spanish,” as she called it, from being around the ranch cowboys, and she enjoyed “keeping up” her fluency for 90-plus years. When Orange County became too crowded, Louise and her sister, Charlotte, headed north in search of more open space to raise cattle. Louise visited the Alisal Guest Ranch while looking for the location she thought was what she wanted, and she found it near Santa Ynez. For several years, Louise had the perspective and foresight to put several ranches together, here in Santa Barbara County, assembling a total of 14,000 acres with which she could raise cattle and have farmland to grow additional feed for livestock. In thinking ahead about what she might do to keep the ranch preserved in its entirety, she became aware of the California Rangeland Trust. This was the answer to keeping the open space for generations to come after she was gone. She put her Gaviota ranch in trust as ranch and farmland in 2013. Louise was up every morning at 5:30, on the phone with ranch business by 6, then breakfast and out the door by 7. She’d ridden horseback across every inch of the ranch. She roped at

her brandings, keeping an eye on how others treated her cattle. She knew every canyon, fence line and their gates, springs, troughs, and where fault-line slippages were, and she could tell you exactly how to get there. In later years she drove her jeep out to see the cows and check the barley fields — fixing fences and cleaning troughs along the way if she saw something she thought needed to be done. Her jeep became her office at times once cell phones came into the picture … and what a picture it was, with Louise often sitting on one of her hilltops when an idea came to mind. Work was never done, and it’s what kept her going. She could look at the grasses in an area and tell you what the soil was lacking and if the cows did well or needed an extra supplement. She loved all cattle and had her favorite breeds, but she liked to crossbreed to “see what happens” at times. Louise was well read and educated. She enjoyed engaging in political conversations, be they national, state, or certainly Santa Barbara County. She was especially on top of environmental issues that may have involved the ranch. She would not hesitate to call or write someone if she wanted more information on a current matter. Louise was a strong-willed woman in all regards. It was the ranch that allowed her to live the life she loved and enjoyed so much; she loved her cows, but she loved her ranch more. It was hard at times, but she never wavered. She was respected and admired by many if not all who knew her and her strength of character. Although the ranch will stay the same, for those who were fortunate enough to be a part ■ of her life, we will sure miss that lady.

c a mP sto ry c ontest We put out a call to readers to submit their summer-camp memories, and the following three stories caught our eye.



hen I was about 13, I went to my last summer camp. It was with my friend’s church. We all got on a big old bus and headed up to Bass Lake in the northern part of the state. It was a beautiful big lake with pine trees and nice shady campsites next to the water. The camp was a Bible retreat for young teens where they were supposed to teach us how to pray. The first thing I remember are the leaders pointing out to us what poison oak looks like. One of the kids, Pauly Kaluza, 13, bragged to all of us that he was immune to the poisonous plant; he daringly rubbed the leaves all over his face and body to prove it. That was the first emergency. You need some fun activities to lure kids to church camp — besides just learning about Jesus and reading the Psalms. Water skiing got our attention. The camp was led by Pastor John, who, even though he had a beard, did not fit the mountain man stereotype. He had secured a fancy speedboat for the trip, loaned to him by a church member. We got out there on the lake and were having a lot of fun — considering that the grown-ups in charge had absolutely no nautical or water skiing experience. I think they figured out how to tie on all our life jackets because there were actual instructions

on them. We raced around the lake with joy and excitement. In the back of the boat, I eagerly awaited my turn. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to water ski. After a couple of runs with the first kid or two, the pull rope wrapped around the propeller, and we suddenly had to abandon ship. I was commanded to wave the red flag until we were rescued by some other boaters. But the shepherd of our flock went down with his vessel.. The engine smoked terribly and then bubbled intoo the water. The last vision I remember was Pastor John n balancing on the tip of the bow as the flashy hull sankk into the depths of the lake. He was praying as fast and d desperately as he could. “Please don’t sink! Please don’t n’t sink! Save me, God, for the waters have come up to my neck!” And it worked! By a miracle, he survived — but ut with only a few inches of the boat, and himself, still ill above water. We definitely got a lesson on how to pray that summer mer — one that I will never forget. –Alan Hurst rst

h backpacking

e of her yout The author on on


he night before was always very stressful — packing the backpack with everything you needed for a week, making sure it didn’t weigh too much. Trips to the Granite Stairway Mountaineering store paved the way to the world of the outdoors M and showed how little you really needed to survive. an I had the wonderful opportunity of backpacking with the City of Santa Barbara’s summer backpacking trips to various places such Sa as a Jade Cove, Salmon Creek, and, my favorite, the Minarets in the High H Sierra. We were all but about 14 or 15 (looking back, I think: the t liability, the risk, the fun). We crossed raging waters on fallen trees (unbuckle pack), played tic-tac-toe on our dried-out skin, basked in the sun by the edge of glacier-formed lakes, learned about moleskin for our blisters, Vibram soles, switchbacks (oh, those dreaded switchbacks), and the feeling of accomplishment from the day’s hike while

making Lipton Cup-a-Soup on Sterno-powered collapsible stoves. We would sleep under infinite stars, clear and calm, sunrise so welcomed to bring light and a warm fire to dry wet socks and cook by. Music, guitar, singing, scary stories, conversation were the evenings activities if you weren’t too tired from the day’s hike. We looked up to our counselors, Kerry Kellogg, Susie Thielman (Thompson), Dave Dietrich, Carol Moyer, Roland, and other wonderful mentors who led the way and patiently dealt with teenagers in the wilderness. Today, these are outstanding people in our community. I am so blessed to have had the experience of backpacking with them as they guided us through the turbulent years of adolescence. The motto I remember we cherished:“Leave only footprints; take only memories,” and those memories were some to cherish. –Mimi (Macko) MAC Duffee



he best summer of my life took place at sleep-away camp. I was 21 and had the opportunity to be a camp counselor at a summer camp outside of New York City. I packed my bag and took my first solo trip, eyes locked on the Big Apple. Little did I know that the summer ahead would prove to be not only one of the most challenging jobs I’ve ever had but also the most unforgettable, and I learned some beautiful lessons. I understand that saying a summer camp that is intended for children between the ages of 5 and 15 changed a grown woman sounds a little crazy. On the surface, camp is friendship bracelets, color wars, and campfires. But I would have never guessed that a friendship bracelet really meant lifelong friend-

ships and that my time at camp would add up to more hours than an entire school year. I’ve never experienced so many emotions in eight weeks as I did when I was a camp counselor. Most importantly, summer camp taught me how to fall in love. I fell in love with independence and with New York City. I fell in love with heat lightning, summer storms, and my polka-dot rain boots. I fell in love with picnics in Central Park, and I fell in love with the boy from the Bronx, my fellow counselor, who showed me the city. I loved my crazy 13-year-old campers, who reminded me how tough it is to be a young girl sometimes. I’ll never lose space in my heart for my summer at camp, and I’ll carry the memories and friendships forever. –Alana Beal The author (left) and a

Eric Kelley Celebrates 35 Years at the Book Den

above: “I like to think of myself as the unofficial host of this parking lot,” said Teddy Kelley while sitting on the back of his RV. Kelley, originally from South Carolina, has been in Santa Barbara for three years and spends his time talking to tourists and strangers walking along the bike path. “I used to have a property in East Texas, which is where all the wood for this vehicle is recycled from. The whole thing is solar powered also,” he added. left: “We love shells; our house is full of them, so we just Googled which beaches in Santa Barbara have the best seashells, and this one came up,” said Abby Ahlgrim. She and her husband, Denis, waited for their daughters while they collected ocean treasures at Carpinteria State Beach. The family is from Temecula and spontaneously decided to drive up the coast for a weekend vacation.

With The Tipping Point, he showed how major social change often starts with one person. In Blink, he demonstrated that split-second decisions sometimes serve us better than careful deliberation. With David and Goliath, journalist and cultural commentator Malcolm Gladwell upends yet another commonly held belief. Subtitled Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, Gladwell’s latest book challenges the very concept of advantage, arguing that individuals, teams, and organizations we perceive as “disadvantaged” often have an edge on the competition. “Then, as now, we were misunderstanding the nature of advantage,” Gladwell said. “The reason I dwell as much as I do on the biblical story is that this was as true thousands of years ago as it is today.” For the full version of this story, visit malcolmgladwell. — Elizabeth Schwyzer

hen Eric Kelley came to town as the new co-owner of the then-70-year-old Book Den, there were at least nine bookstores in town. That was 35 years ago this month. Many of them (now gone), like Earthling, Osborne’s, and Andromeda, and all of the big chains, were within a mile of the store Kelley and Mike Isador had just purchased Eric Kelley from Richard and Susan Phelps. “There were a lot of good usedbook stores in town, too,” said Kelley, who always saw the Book Den as a hybrid of used, rare, and new volumes. They survived in that competitive environment, though Isador left in the first few years, and today the Book Den is still doing fine, thank you very much. Kelley has changed himself and the store, adapting many ways such as learning to use the Internet to sell his occasional rare-book find almost instantaneously — he’s always had a good hand at picking up the overlooked treasure. But that’s not really what he loves, he claimed. He’s excited that the store is a balance of about 40 percent new books and the rest used because he can make deals for people both ways — maybe they want a battered old copy of On the Road, which always sells out fast, but he usually has a nice new printing in the store. And it works in reverse, too. “It isn’t the big sales, though I like making them,” he said. “Today a mom and dad and three kids came in the store and spent some time browsing and when they left, they all found a book. And I thought, that’s great, there’s a future for this store, and there’s a future for this — D.J. Palladino culture.”

ur Christopher Buckley — who is not the political satirist who wrote Thank You for Smoking but did write a funny essay about the quirks of identity titled I Am Not Christopher Buckley — is just about to publish his 20th book of poetry. One famous Santa Barbara writer made light of the accomplishment until he learned all the books were published by real publishers, not vanity presses. A famous in-town poet added, “He’s a machine, a machine.” Buckley laughed hearing this and explained that it usually took him about three years to find someone to publish his work. “And by that time, if you don’t have another book of poetry already written, well, what have you been doing?” But more pointedly, our Buckley also published the third book of his engaging growing-up-inSanta-Barbara 1960s memoirs. The first was Cruising State: Growing up in Southern California (1994); next came Sleepwalk (2006); and now — just days before his book of poetry arrives — comes Holy Days of Obligation. “It’s going to be the last memoir about growing up in Santa Barbara, but a lot of it’s about the poets who influenced me. What it tries to explain is: How do you end up being a writer?” Buckley blames his career on Sister Julie at Mount Carmel School, which he attended in the 1950s and where he wrote a poem about his mother and discovered it had meter and rhyme. He was born in Arcata in Northern California, but his family moved to Santa Barbara in the late 1950s. His father was a disc jockey, and though his parents divorced, and he moved with his mother to Palm Springs, Buckley’s sentimental education was wandering S.B.’s lanes and beaches on bikes and surfboards. One strong epiphany involved a Swinburne poem reprinted in a surf magazine he browsed in Montecito’s Bottle Shop. As a student at Saint Mary’s College, Buckley fell under the spell of a number of contemporary poets but, most importantly, slightly older contemporaries like Philip Levine and Larry Levis. Flash-forward to the late 1970s: Buckley became a poet and a writing teacher — at UCSB, UC Riverside, and a number of other schools (including a godforsaken time spent in a hellish Pennsylvania college) — before returning to UCSB’s Creative Studies program. Asked why he writes, one of the poets profiled in Holy Days replies, “To freeze time.” Buckley manages to achieve this himself frequently: sometimes talking about penny candy in the Montecito Village, remembering life as young poets barbecuing in Fresno or just surfing Hammonds. It’s a fine achievement, this personal memoir, and even stacked up against so many books of published poetry, it makes our Buckley seem like anything but a machine.

— D.J. Palladino

s a former Santa Barbara poet laureate, and a book reviewer for The S.B. Independent, I wanted to do something special for the 2014 edition of National Poetry Month (i.e., April). I decided to write one review for every day of the month. All the books were published in 2013 or 2014 by single authors (no anthologies), and though several of those authors are distant acquaintances, none of them are friends. I read nearly 100 books in preparation for Poetry Month and, in general, chose to silently ignore collections I found less engaging, focusing instead on those I could recommend. Here, in alphabetical order by author, are selections for the first half of the month.

a little surreal, Matthew Olzmann’s Mezzanines contains at least one outrageous surprise on almost every page. One poem is titled “Man Robs Liquor Store, Leaves Résumé.” In another, the speaker writes letters to a shipwreck at the bottom of Lake Michigan. The shipwreck doesn’t write back.

Lucie Brock-Broido, Stay, Illusion: The poems in Lucie

David O’Meara, A Pretty Sight: If David O’Meara isn’t

Jane Munro, Blue Sonoma:

These are delicate, polished poems — poems of few words — and while a fast reader could tear through Blue Sonoma in a half hour, that would be doing a grave disservice to Munro’s craft. The second half of the book, about her partner’s dementia, is so devastating because it is so beautiful. Matthew Olzmann, Mezzanines: Quirky, zany, more than

Brock-Broido’s latest book inhabit the “district of late/ last light.” Initially, her surreal juxtapositions may seem grating, but gradually they come to make an uncanny kind of sense. Brock-Broido is averaging one book a decade — it will be fascinating to see what the 2020s bring.

Canada’s greatest living poet, he is certainly among the top contenders for that honor. His latest book, A Pretty Sight, is both artistically challenging and eminently readable. Poems about Kosovo, End Times, and a lively dialogue between Socrates and Sid Vicious are among the many highlights.

Ava Leavell Haymon, Eldest Daughter: The poems of Ava Leavell Haymon, Louisiana’s poet laureate, are accessible yet unflinchingly demanding. “This is not a simply good/evil poem,” she writes, essentially describing all of her work. If nothing else, “Bass Fishing with a Hulapopper” may be the finest poem ever written on that particular subset of angling.

Mary Rose O’Reilley, Earth, Mercy: “Show, don’t tell,” creative-writing instructors are forever badgering their students, and Mary Rose O’Reilley’s new book demonstrates why that’s such good advice: A well-chosen image allows even the briefest poem to resonate long after it’s been read. Like Ted Kooser, O’Reilley makes ordinary life in the Midwest seem magical.

Sarah Lindsay, Debt to the Bone-Eating Snotflower: The title of Sarah Lindsay’s new book is deliberately unlovely, as is the title poem’s subject, a “tender pink plant-like oceangoing worm.” Yet Osedax mucofloris epitomizes the sort of creature that piques Lindsay’s interest in the oddities of the natural world: luminous squid and Komodo dragons, bacteria, fish in trees.

Mary Ruefle, Trances of the Blast: While Mary Ruefle’s poems veer quickly from the serious to the absurd — sometimes within a single line — there is a surprising pathos amid all that nuttiness. As much as any poet’s, Ruefle’s titles give a clear sense of her aesthetic: “The Bunny Gives Us a Lesson in Eternity,” “Metaphysical Blight.”

Louis MacNeice, Collected Poems: A lifetime’s work from

Ban ‘Bossy’?


rybaby. Tattletale. Mama’s boy. Kids can be nasty little namecallers, can’t they? It’s easy to deflect some schoolyard slurs — the ones we know for sure aren’t true. Scaredy-cat? In your dreams. Goody Two-shoes? Puh-leeze. But other labels — shorty, for instance, or carrottop — are so obviously, undeniably true, there’s no point in even ducking their well-aimed wallop. For me, bossy was one of those labels. The no-denying kind. The kind you can only answer with an “Oh, yeah? Well, so what!” and go on about your life. I’m bossy. It’s not an endearing quality, nothing to brag about. But my classmates and I can attest that it’s absolutely accurate. It’s also the reason I’m about to put Sheryl Sandberg in her place. Sandberg, Facebook’s COO and the author of Lean In, has joined forces with the Girl Scouts in a campaign to retire the word “bossy” from public lexicon. Their argument: It quashes girls’ leadership instincts. “We know that by middle school, more boys than girls want to lead,” Sandberg told ABC News, “and if you ask girls why they don’t want to lead, whether it’s the school project all the way on to running for office, they don’t want to be called bossy, and they don’t want to be disliked.” In promotional videos on, assertive, successful women Condoleezza Rice, Beyoncé, and actresses Jane Lynch and Jennifer Garner tell girls, “It’s okay to be ambitious,” and dare them to listen to their own voices as inspiring music swells. All of which is super cool. And yet here are the top 10 reasons why banning “bossy” is a lousy idea:

(1) As a writer, I resent anyone telling me what words I can and can’t use. I do wish people would choose their words more carefully, but I never want to see any word put out to pasture. (I’ve been tryby Starshine ing to bring back “motorist” for years; so far, no luck.) (2) Gimmicky women’s empowerment campaigns are sort of insulting — like email: those breast-cancer-awareness stunts on Facebook that ask you to slyly post your bra size so everyone will whisper, “What could it mean?!” They draw attention even as they undermine the seriousness of the issues. The paucity of women leaders in America can’t be righted with a death knell for a 4th-grade insult. (3) “Bossy” is not crippling. “I was called bossy when I was in 9th grade,” Sandberg recalled. “My teacher took my best friend Mindy aside and said, ‘You shouldn’t be friends with Sheryl. She’s bossy.’ And that hurt.” I can’t help noticing the woman now runs flipping Facebook. (4) Being bossy is not the same as being a leader; bossiness is selfappointed leadership of people who have no interest in being led. Are bossy girls really the ones we want leading our country? I know I personally have no business on a ballot. (5) The campaign insists that assertive boys are deemed “leaders” while assertive girls are labeled “bossy.” I don’t buy the gender assignment. Slut? Sure. Bitch? No doubt. But I asked my 8-year-old son if he knows bossy people, and he named a boy at school, then added, “I guess I’m kind of bossy. … I’m really bossy.” (“Motorist,” I’m just saying, is unisex. How great is that?) (6) My best friends are bossy, and I love them for it. It means they’re confident and, yes, perhaps too quick to dole out orders, but it’s only because somebody has to do it and, really, who better than them? (7) Maybe girls don’t want to be leaders because being a leader often sucks. (8) sells onesies — you know, for infants — that say, “I’m not bossy. I’m a leader.” Really? Infants are not leaders. Not even girl infants. (9) Sorry, but if you need to be spared from name-calling — if you require Jennifer “ Going on ” Garner to clear the Path to Leadership of all verbal jibes before you’re willing to set foot on it — then you’re not actually cut out for the job. (10) I’m bossy. You were expecting polite applause?

Playing Hard Ball

UCSB Baseball Works for a Spot in the NCAA Tournament


by John Zant

he diamond is the Big West’s best friend. After

a fleeting appearance in March Madness — Cal Poly managed to win a play-in game before being obliterated by Wichita State in the NCAA basketball tournament — the conference schools flex their muscles when the baseball season comes around. Cal State Fullerton, which visits UCSB this weekend (April 11-13), is a perennial power out of the Big West. The Titans have won four national championships and made 22 consecutive appearances in the NCAA baseball tournament. Last year, UCSB and Cal Poly tied for second place in the conference and joined the Titans in the NCAA’s field of 64 teams. They all started out with victories in the first round of regional competition, but only Fullerton advanced to the Super Regionals, where it was edged out by UCLA, the eventual champion. The same Big West trio is singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” in 2014. Cal Poly (26-5) leads the chorus with a No.  ranking on most of this week’s national polls. UCSB (20-7) is ranked as high as No.  (by Collegiate Baseball Magazine) and Cal State Fullerton (16-11), which was a preseason No.  pick, holds the No.  spot on the National College Baseball Writers Association poll. Led by those three teams, the Big West has winning records against all other West Coast conferences, including the Pac-. “The top of the Big West is comparable to the top of the Pac-,” said Andrew Checketts, an assistant at Oregon three years ago when he was hired as UCSB’s head coach. The second-tier Big West teams are no pushovers either, as the Gauchos found out when they lost two of three games to Hawai‘i. UCSB’s next series took place last weekend in San Luis Obispo. The Gauchos showed there was little difference between them and Cal Poly, but again they lost two out of three. They jumped all over the Mustangs’ ace pitcher Matt Imhof in the opener and held on for an 8-6 victory. They rallied from a 5-0 deficit to take a 6-5 lead on Saturday, but Cal Poly won, 8-7, on a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth. In Sunday’s rubber match, Gaucho freshman Shane Bieber and Mustang sophomore Casey Bloomquist staged a magnificent pitchers’ duel, and Cal Poly came out on top, 1-0. “Bieber’s a terrific pitcher,” said Gaucho outfielder Joey Epperson, the leading hitter in the Big West with a .465 average. “We had opportunities to score five or six runs. It was one

of those days. [Cal Poly] had one opportunity, and the ball fell in.” The Mustangs broke the scoreless deadlock in the fourth inning. With a man on first and two out, Jimmy Allen poked a ball inside the right-field foul line, and it rolled into the corner for a run-scoring triple. Meanwhile, the Gauchos stranded eight runners on the base paths during the taut 2¾-hour contest, watched by a crowd of 2,489 under a blazing sun at Cal Poly’s Babbitt Stadium. “Talk about stress,” Mustangs assistant coach Teddy Warrecker said. “We had to play our best baseball today. UCSB puts a lot of pressure on you.” The Gauchos have the highest team batting average (.307) in the conference. Cal Poly fans held their breaths whenever Tyler Kuresa (eight home runs, 32 RBIs) or hot-hitting Robby Nesovic came up to bat, but Bloomquist held them in check. Warrecker, a Santa Barbara native and former head coach at SBCC, said that ever since last year’s short ride on the road to Omaha (the College World Series), Cal Poly has been motivated to get back into the NCAA tournament “and go further. We want to host a regional. There’s a great atmosphere here.” UCSB has the same goals in its reach, except perhaps for the hosting part. But off to a 2-4 start in the conference, the Gauchos have a hill to climb, and it could turn into a mountain if they don’t start winning some series. “We still feel good,” Epperson said. “We’ve got to keep playing our brand of baseball and battle.” That brand includes robust offensive production and clutch pitching in the late innings. Before last weekend, the Gauchos were 7-0 in one-run games. Greg Mahle, a gritty junior left-hander, has the pitching staff ’s best record (5-1) in 16 appearances, all in relief. Dillon Tate, a lights-out freshman closer, has not allowed an earned run in 15 innings of work. Past and present injuries have forced Checketts to juggle his starting pitchers, but Bieber looked strong Sunday, and junior Austin Pettibone, the ace of last year’s staff, seems to be regaining his form. Cal State Fullerton’s formula for success begins on the pitcher’s mound. The Titans have a staff earned-run average of 2.05, and they have issued fewer walks than any other team in the nation. The game times at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium will be Friday,

DIAMOND DAYS: (pictured clockwise from left) Gaucho outfielder Joey Epperson is the leading hitter in the Big West with a .465 average; a view from behind home plate at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium; first-year pitcher Dillon Tate, the Gaucho closer, brings heat from the mound.

April 11, 3 p.m.; Saturday, April 12, 2 p.m.; and Sunday, April 13, 1 p.m. It would be a happy occasion for the students, staff, and alumni who take pride in UCSB if the wildest party this weekend occurs at the baseball diamond. MORE COLLEGE BASEBALL: The Westmont Warriors have made great strides under Coach Robert Ruiz. Last week

they swept a three-game series from Concordia, the NAIA’s sixth-ranked team, to move 10 games above .500 (24-14). Sophomore pitcher Russell Harmening sports a 9-2 record. … SBCC (20-9) enters the homestretch of the regular season three games out of first place in the Western State Conference, with a pair of games this week against first-place Oxnard.

BRIGHT SPOT: One of the best things to come out of

UCSB’s basketball season is the nationwide recognition of Gaucho junior center Alan Williams. He was named to the All-District  first team (comprising players from all West Coast schools) by both the coaches and the basketball writers, and the Associated Press put him on its honorable mention All-America team. Williams, who led the nation in rebounding, was a finalist for the Lou Henson Award that goes to the nation’s top mid-major player. The winner was Langston Hall of Mercer, the team that knocked Duke out of the NCAA tournament.

WORLD’S GREATEST: Westmont College’s track-and-field facility has become a spring-training oasis for Olympic athletes, most notably decathlon champion Ashton Eaton. There will be a high-powered coaching clinic there Sunday, April 13, conducted by Eaton’s coach, Harry Marra, and sprinting guru Tom Tellez, known for his work with Carl Lewis. Josh Priester of the Santa Barbara Track Club will lead a clinic for high school and middle school athletes. For more sports, including a weekly highlight schedule, see april 10, 2014

ith all the critical fuss about the nuanced, acid-driven wonders of pinot noir and chardonnay grown in chilly regions, you may not know that other types of wine grapes also produce unique aromas and flavors when cultivated in fogsoaked, wind-whipped places like the Sta.

Kult Kitchen, Sweet Lady Cook, and Mizuba Tea Co. Just Three Featured Purveyors

Backyard Tasting with Central Coast Winemakers Reveals Savory Style by Matt Kettmann


by Kailey Erlich and Molly Christison


ith a deliciously modern menu of Indonesian-inspired dishes that rely mostly on the seasonal harvests of small, nearby farmers, Sama Sama Kitchen (1208 State Street; 965-4566; is already climbing to the top of Santa Barbara’s ladder for eye-opening and taste-bud-tingling dinner experiences. But this Sunday, April 13, 5-9 p.m., Sama Sama takes its commitment to creative cuisine even further by hosting Hunt & Gather, a free festival where customers of all ages can sample and shop for handmade foods, drinks, and other items on the restaurant’s back patio. Here is info on just three of more than a dozen purveyors expected to be selling their wares this weekend.

KULT KITCHEN: Jon Riddell and Julia Rose of Kult Kitchen pitched their

big idea for a pickle-and-sauerkraut business on, eventually gaining enough financial backing from pledges to start fermenting regionally farmed food out of their home base in Ojai. “It’s so healthy for you,” said Riddell. “You get more probiotics from sauerkraut than from yogurt!” They’ll be peddling their sauerkraut at Hunt & Gather, as well as their signature sweet-and-spicy pickle, seasoned with turmeric and chili flakes. See

SWEET LADY COOK: For those who prefer sweet without the spicy, try Sweet Lady Cook, homemade organic preserves sourced from Santa Barbara and Ventura county farms by Arian Blanco. Even if you don’t usually like jams or jellies, you might surprise yourself after tasting Blanco’s creations, which can include savory and bitter flavors. “I am a one-woman operation,” said Blanco, who started her company after trying a family friend’s jam a couple of years ago. “I make the jam; I make deliveries; I do everything myself.” Business skyrocketed over the past six months, said Blanco, explaining, “I try and make my business very visible, especially through Instagram.” Favorites include clementine and sea-salt marmalade, as well as balsamic strawberry, both of which will be on hand Sunday. See MIZUBA TEA COMPANY:

With a mom who served tea every morning before school, Santa Barbara native Lauren Danson is a lifelong tea fanatic, even hosting weekly tea parties out of her Westmont College dorm room. “My friends would tell me every week, ‘This is what you need to do with your life,’” said Danson. But she pursued journalism until falling in love with tea again during a visit last spring to Uji, Japan, the birthplace of the Japanese tea ceremony. “I stepped off the train, and the first thing I noticed was the scent of matcha infuses your nose,” recalled Danson of the stone-ground, shade-grown, especially nutritious green tea. “You walk downtown, and every single shop is tea-dedicated. Needless to say, I had the best day of my life.” After grad school in Denver, Danson reached out to a 100-year-old family tea farm in Uji, as she said, “knowing nothing about business, knowing nothing about FDA, knowing nothing about importing, knowing absolutely nothing other than the fact that I love sharing tea.” She successfully navigated the international intricacies, and her first order of The free foodie festival matcha came last September Hunt & Gather is Sun(pictured above).

$AP Ferg, born Darold

Ferguson, has gone by the moniker “trap lord” for some time now, but that doesn’t mean he’s tired of explaining what it means. “I never get tired, because there’s always a person who wants to know who A$AP Ferg is, aside from the A$AP Mob. And they deserve to know. For a fan, before you become a consumer, you want to know what you’re buying into. So I get it, totally.” For Ferg, creative expression and hustle are both legacies left by his father, Darold Ferguson, who owned a Harlem boutique and screen shop and printed T-shirts for the likes of Heavy D, Teddy Riley, and Bad Boy Records. In 2011, Ferg joined the Harlem-based hip-hop collective A$AP Mob (and adopted his A$AP moniker) together with high school friend Rocky, an upand-coming Harlem-bred rapper at the time. Ferg, meanwhile, had already established himself as a hustler of repute as the owner/operator of Devoni Clothing, hocking leather belts worn by everyone from Chris Brown to Swizz Beatz. Needless to say, Ferg’s vision has always been broader than simply rapping — a mentality that’s translated well, not only as a member of the A$AP Mob. It’s a necessary mindset for anyone who fancies themselves a “trap lord.” Do you feel like your music doesn’t resonate as much with an international audience? Not necessarily, because it’s the same kind of bounce. Everybody relates to my music the same way because it’s the same message. My music is not hard to understand.“Shabba Ranks” is a turnt-up song.“Work” is a turnt-up song.“Let It Go” is a turnt-up song. And the more conscious songs, like “Hood Pope” or “Cocaine Castle,” there’s a clear message that I’m stating in those songs. And people totally get it.

You’ve been designing clothes for some time now. Tell me about your plans for your brand, Trap Lord. Is that something that you’re still closely involved with? Yeah, I design everything on that, and that’s why it takes me a while to put things out. I have the final say on everything, from the models to the pictures to the style to the materials used, the dyes, the logos. I like to be real hands-on, and that’s why it’s exclusive. But I do want to do more lifestyle stuff, like dining, sheets, bedspreads, rugs, things like that. Forks, plates, glasses, towels — all that stuff. You sound like Trap Lord Ralph Lauren. Yeah, well, Ralph Lauren is one of my biggest inspirations, so I just want to live through my lifestyle. Ralph Lauren has his. He deals with horses and cars. I deal more with BMX and … I’m just a kid, you know? I’m a kid, and I love to have fun. And I want to represent my culture. A lot is being said about this resurgence in hip-hop, especially in New York. Do you feel like there’s an ample supply of young talent coming up behind groups like A$AP or Pro Era? There’s not a shortage. I think people are getting way more talented. Rap was getting boring for a long time when everybody was shooting the same kind of videos — like ass-poppin’ music. It was kind of getting whack. But now people are talking with substance. They’re really just being themselves. Kids are being themselves. You don’t have to wear a big chain anymore to be the best rapper alive. A$AP Ferg performs at Casa de la Raza ( E. Montecito St.) on Tuesday, April 15, at 8p.m. with Flatbush Zombies. Visit for tickets —Jake Blair and info.



MOB BO$$: A$AP Mob’s A$AP Ferg heads to Casa de la Raza this week in support of his 2013 debut, Trap Lord.


SPOOKED: Matt Cooper stars as the ghost named Chance opposite Allison Threadgold as his widow, Bethany, in Circle Bar B’s new show.

The Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre is haunted. Starting on Friday, April 11, there will be a ghost named Chance in the theater, along with the rest of the cast of Ghost of a Chance, the first COMES TO show in the company’s 44th CIRCLE BAR B season. Like many Circle Bar B (CBB) productions before it, Chance mixes the fun of a comedy with the sweetness of a little romance, a blend that has worked well over the years, both as a complement to tri-tip barbecue and as a signature house style for the CBB troupe. Brian Harwell, who directed last year’s season opener, Return Engagments, is back to helm this one, and we spoke with him last week about what to expect. “There’s lots of verbal play, and it centers on the challenge of the ghost, whom only one, or at most two, characters can hear,” he explained. Asked to describe the appeal of the Circle Bar B approach, Harwell said, “In these shows, we take standard formulas straight out of farce, and we put a twist on them, something that makes you go from thinking that it’s something you’ve seen before to that great moment of ‘aha’ when you realize that it’s not exactly what you expect.” Casting the show offered Harwell, who frequently works as a stage actor, the opportunity to give back some of what he has gotten from all that experience: “Having been onstage so much myself, I like the challenge of directing because it makes me have to explain it. I can’t just rely on intuition like I might in a performance — it’s got to be something that makes sense. At the same time, I try not to be Ty Cobb about it.” Wait, what? Ty Cobb, baseball’s most legendary not-nice guy? “I mean Ty Cobb in the sense that, when he became a manager, he wasn’t very good at communicating with the players,” laughed Harwell. “I’m just saying that I don’t want to be the kind of director who’s not helpful to the actors.” For tickets and info, call 967-1962 or visit — Charles Donelan


Once upon a time, the only music coming out of Isla Vista was a vibeless crossbreed of reggae and dude rock. Sped up or slowed down, aggressive or mellow, it was the kind of stuff that you had to be high to stomach. Nowadays, though, a Friday night in I.V. offers music fans a little bit more, at least as far as variety goes. In recent months, we’ve seen UCSB’s mean streets spit out some serious synth jams, courtesy of FMLYBND; blissfully layered surf rock, thanks to Sun Daes; and at least one delightfully out-there electronic act. (Psychojohn, we’re looking at you.) And now, we can add The Fire Department to the growing list of UCSB-adjacent acts that have graduated out of the kegger scene. For Underwater, the I.V.-born band relocated to sunny Ojai, built a studio, and got to work on the four jams that would become their new EP. Like their live set, Underwater is dripping with a not-so-subtle sex appeal. (Lead track “So High” starts with the line, “Girl, I want to be between those jeans.”) But it’s The Fire Department’s cheeky blending of R&B, funk, and yacht-rock tropes that makes the band so gosh-darn loveable. Their songs are nods to time-tested, feel-good favorites like Steely Dan and Hall & Oates, and they’re delivered with the strong hooks and conviction that not only turns heads but demands you dance along. — Aly Comingore

Modern Painter Richard Haines: Midcentury Master. At Sullivan Goss, An American Gallery. Shows through June 29. Reviewed by Charles Donelan


s the dust settles in Palm Springs after another busy year at Modernism Week (more than 45,000 people in attendance this time around), it’s nice to know that Santa Barbara residents with a passion for midcentury modern design don’t necessarily have to travel to the desert to learn and even to collect. Apart from the ease with which a classic George Nelson– style bench can be obtained from MichaelKate or Design Within Reach, there’s the fact that Sullivan Goss, An American Gallery, has the finest collection of midcentury modern paintings originating in California of any gallery in the country. It’s shocking how often this key element in the overall impact of a room furnished in a midcentury ABSTRACT PARTY: In “Celmodern style is overlooked. Photos ebration — Night of Return,” and posters are great, but when it Richard Haines applies cubist comes to crafting the perfect blend of technique to a subject more authenticity and excitement, nothing usually treated in another else will do but an original artwork one of his modes, the mural. with a strong connection to the movement and the period. Richard Haines: Midcentury Master, which is on view at Sullivan Goss, provides a great education for those interested in completing their understanding of the generation that produced the designs of Charles and Ray Eames and the architecture of Richard Neutra and Joseph Eichler. There’s a lot more to it than what is on the surface, and that’s one reason that painting is such an important piece of the midcentury puzzle. Coming out of a graphic design background and migrating to Los Angeles from the Midwest both put Haines in the mainstream along with his fellow modernist innovators. Thanks to a strong work ethic and a talent for instruction, he landed consecutive teaching appointments at the Chouinard Art Institute (1945-54) and the Otis College of Art and Design, where he taught from 1954 until 1974. As an educator, Haines balanced his own cubist and surrealist influences with the wider range of styles and techniques necessary to give his students a comprehensive understanding of the art form. At the same time that he took this responsibility for communicating the totality of painting to a younger generation of artists — many of whom would go on to considerable acclaim — Haines won recognition for himself as an in-demand muralist, completing dozens of commission for public works across the country, including several signature contributions to the UCLA campus, such as the murals on the façade of Schoenberg Hall. Midcentury Master benefits from the breadth of Sullivan Goss’s holdings, as it includes works from all phases of his career. For purity of midcentury purpose, it’s hard to beat the images from the 1950s, in which Haines stacked cubist-influenced planes of paint using a relatively narrow bandwidth of colors to represent moments of community celebration. In “Celebration — Night of Return” and “Sketch D — Spirituals,” Haines builds the scene with clusters of verticals, and then populates it with abstract figures united by form and hue. There’s a reverence for the spiritual side of life running through all of Haines’s work, even when he forgoes the figure in favor of an unpopulated landscape. For example, in the 1975 painting “Irish Village,” Haines captures the distinctive way in which Irish houses are grouped together, hugging the street, and thus providing information about who lives there and how they relate to one another even when no human forms are present. The large painting “Possessions” and the small sketches gathered from the archive of Haines’s studio that occupy the back wall reveal the artist’s meticulous method of composition from opposite ends of the spectrum. The sketches demonstrate his willingness to experiment, and his persistence in exploring light and space through line and color, while the large canvas reveals a master at work in the juggling of multiple shapes and proportions toward a single unified effect. In a time when all things midcentury seem to be enjoying an uptick in popular interest, Richard Haines: Midcentury Master offers a salutary reminder of painting’s ongoing centrality in an aesthetic too often reduced to an inventory ■ of buildings, objects, and furniture.

LADIES’ NIGHT Laugh Out Loud with Women Fully Clothed by Ginny Chung


ased out of Canada, Women Fully Clothed is an ensemble of four women — Robin Duke, Kathryn Greenwood, Teresa Pavlinek, and Jayne Eastwood — with a whole lot of experience under their belts. On the phone with Duke, Greenwood, and Pavlinek in anticipation of the troupe’s April 13 arrival at the Lobero Theatre, the women shared their purpose, progress, advice, and more. Their comedy show is made up of sketches about everyday life. Duke, who has performed on and written for Saturday Night Live and SCTV, described these vignettes as well-written plays that are both natural and built on personal experiences. “It’s a way to look at life and have fun,” she said. “Life is short; let’s have a laugh!” The troupe first came together a decade ago, thanks to a fundraising event for Women Against Violence. They all shared the same story: Each had worked for Chicago improv group The Second City but at different times. They all knew of one another, and considered each to be an inspiration, but had never met in person. Greenwood recalled that Duke brought them all together to perform at the charity event. It was supposed to be a one-time thing, but the success of the night made touring almost inevitable. Greenwood said she initially declined the invite to head out on the road,“but Robin kept luring me. We would eat together, drink together, and laugh until we wet our pants.” Soon enough they were eating together, drinking together, and going home to write material together. Shortly thereafter, Women Fully Clothed was born. It’s been 10 years since the very first show, and the women are still having the time of their lives, said Duke.“I’ve gotten more creative and productive. I’m working with experienced actors who continue to inspire and challenge me.” “The most fun we have, though, is what we’re doing right now: sitting in the van, eating, laughing, and shopping … and eating a lot of cheese,” laughed Greenwood. Pavlinek is especially proud of how she’s evolved as a writer.“Our first show was a great trial, and by the second show, I found my voice,” she recalled.“And things just got better, like they always do.” Because of the name, it’s no surprise to hear that most of the Women Fully Clothed audiences are mostly women.“Absolutely women are the first to come to the show, but they will bring husbands and significant others, and they’ll laugh as hard as the women do,” said Duke. “They get to laugh at themselves, but that’s what we’re all doing — we’re all about laughing at ourselves.” Pavlinek said that they’ve had a high number of male celebs come see them do their thing, too. “No man will leave this show thinking we’re assholes,” she laughed. “We have a great fan base,” added Greenwood. “We get positive comments on our website, on Twitter …. There was one time where someone called me a slut on YouTube, but frankly, I don’t think that’s a bad thing! I can be whatever I want.” What they want for the audience is to make them laugh like they’ve never laughed before.“I love it when people leave feeling lighter, and I think laughing does that,” said Pavlinek.“In fact, I bet there are studies that prove it.” Women Fully Clothed comes to the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.) on Sunday, April 13, at 7:30 p.m. Call 963-0761 or visit lobero .com for tickets and info.

FROM MANHATTAN TO MONTECITO New York Philharmonic Joins Forces with Music Academy of the West

MUSICAL UNION: ( FROM LEFT ) MAW’s Scott Reed teams up with New York Philharmonic Music Director Alan Gilbert and New York Philharmonic Executive Director Matthew VanBesien.

by Tom Jacobs


anta Barbara, it’s a wonderful town. The Mission’s up, and the Funk Zone is down. Granted, those lyrics don’t have quite the same ring as the original. But a slightly altered version of Leonard Bernstein’s Broadway classic “New York, New York” seems an appropriately joyous way to welcome the Manhattan-based orchestra he famously led. In an innovative partnership with the Music Academy of the West, the New York Philharmonic — the nation’s oldest and most prestigious symphony — is on its way to Santa Barbara. And unlike the sailors in On the Town, who had a single day to take in the city’s sights, the musicians have already signed up for repeat visits. Music director Alan Gilbert and certain key players will be on hand for each of the next four summers, teaching and performing as part of the Music Academy’s offerings. And in two of those years — 2015 and 2017 — the full orchestra will be here, working with the Academy’s 140 young musicians (with an average age of just 23) and performing concerts for the community. “We didn’t want to be simply a tour stop for the Philharmonic,” said Music Academy president Scott Reed.“Rather than just performing and leaving, they will be immersing themselves in the community.” If all goes as hoped, the arrangement will benefit both organizations. “They’re looking at expanding their teaching profile; they feel that’s an important part of the evolution of the orchestra,” Reed said. “Our priorities aligned.” The partnership is more than two years in the making, according to Reed, who has long been pondering how to enhance the academy’s orchestral music program while retaining its emphasis on chamber music and master classes. That issue was on his mind when he went to hear the New York Philharmonic in May 2012, when CAMA brought the renowned ensemble to the Granada Theatre. “I was backstage talking to Alan and Matthew VanBesien, the orchestra’s executive director,” Reed recalled. “It was one of those conversations that ended with, ‘We should talk about doing something together sometime.’” At Reed’s invitation, VanBesien returned that summer and served as a judge in the academy’s annual Concerto Night competition. Impressed, he played the same role the following summer. Afterward, he and Reed started talking seriously about a joint project. “They are very interested in getting increased exposure on the West Coast,” Reed said, noting that the orchestra has a regular residency in Vail, Colorado, and will soon inaugurate another in Shanghai, China. “Great things are happening here on the musical scene, with the L.A. Phil-

harmonic at the forefront. That’s a shift and one I feel really proud to be a part of.” Reed declined to put a dollar figure on the project, except to say that boardmember Mike Keston and his wife, Linda, have donated $1.2 million as a kick-off gift. “Our board is fiscally prudent,” he insisted. “We have a funding plan in place that fully covers everything.” This summer, Gilbert will be in Montecito for a week, teaching two master classes and conducting a chamber orchestra concert. The ensemble, made up of Music Academy fellows, will perform July 26 in the Lobero Theatre. The orchestra’s assistant conductor, Joshua Weilerstein, will conduct this year’s Concerto Night concert July 19 in the Granada. Reed noted that he attended the Music Academy as a violinist and won the Concerto Night competition in 2008, making this “kind of a homecoming for him.” (And not just for him: 12 Music Academy alumni are members of the orchestra.) During the final week of this summer’s session, three of the Philharmonic’s principal players will arrive to do some coaching and teaching. They’ll also oversee an audition process, selecting 10 fellows who will spend 10 days in New York in early January. “Each will be assigned a New York Philharmonic mentor,” Reed explained. “They’ll rehearse and perform with the New York Philharmonic as part of that week’s subscription concerts. That will be repeated each of the next four years, so a total of 40 fellows will go through that program.” In 2015, the entire New York Philharmonic will spend three days in Santa Barbara to work with Music Academy fellows and give a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl.“The idea is to create a kind of Central Park experience here in Santa Barbara,” Reed said.“We hope people will bring their families. Ticket prices will be low. We want to fill the Bowl with an enthusiastic audience.” Gilbert will return by himself for a week in 2016, and the entire orchestra comes back in 2017. Plans call for the Philharmonic and the Music Academy Orchestra to combine forces for a giant concert to be conducted by Gilbert and performed twice — once in Santa Barbara and a second time in Los Angeles. Reed added that the relationship may be extended.“We chose four years because there was a natural culmination opportunity — 2017 will be the Music Academy’s 70th anniversary,” he said. “But we’ll both be closely assessing how this works. Both of us have an equal stake in making this successful.” For more on the Music Academy of the West, visit music ■

SAY A LITTLE PRAYER Chvrches Play Coachella, Head to Ventura


by Jake Blair


t felt like a swift transformation for Glasgow’s Chvrches, going from a mysterious EP release to the third line of this year’s Coachella lineup. A trio of Glasgow music-scene veterans, Chvrches wrote and recorded most of their music in a basement studio, where the decision to form the band was originally made. The group — consisting of longtime friends and producers Iain Cook and Martin Doherty and vocalist/journalist Lauren Mayberry — started out as most do, by writing and recording. As for why they decided to name the band Chvrches (with a v), it came down to simple searchability; just try to Google “churches” or “churches music” or “churches live.” Now, three years, one EP, one fulllength record, and a bulging résumé of awards and critical distinctions later, Chvrches have practically become a household name. Despite their success, though, they’re intent on maintaining their own distinct feel and vision. And they’re eager to get back down into that basement. We recently chatted with Mayberry about her perspective on the media, the importance of maintaining creative control, and the best curry in Glasgow.

HERE’S THE STEEPLE: Glasgow’s Chvrches — (from left) Martin Doherty, Lauren Mayberry, and Iain Cook — head to Ventura in support of their breakthrough LP, The Bones of What You Believe.

Has your education and experience as a journalist impacted how you write as a musician? Or has it had an effect on how you interact with the media? I don’t think it necessarily makes me write differ-

ently, but I think it makes how we interact with the media different. Because even when I was a journalist, and I don’t mean to pat myself on the back too much, but I think I was one of the good guys who would report it as it was. I didn’t have a preconceived angle; I would develop my angle for a story after the interview was done. And that was a big learning curve at the beginning of this band, to learn that not necessarily everybody works like that. But beyond that, I was always in bands while I was writing anyways, so the two things are kind of separate for me. I would always think about that when I was writing something. Like, if it’s a review, I’ll just say, “It’s subjective; it’s your point of view, based on a record or based on a live show,” and I would never really think my opinion was fact. But now, I think it’s kind of funny to see the other side of that — when people really trust reviewers. Sometimes things can be really spot-on, like when you find a reviewer who shares their taste with you. But I think that’s really quite rare. So taking something like a review as gospel is quite difficult for me, I think.

Do you anticipate maintaining creative control getting more difficult as the band’s profile continues to grow? For us, creative control has been

pretty easy because we have two people in our band who come from a production background, so we can engineer and record the whole record ourselves and not have to be in with another producer. There isn’t another opinion involved. By the time we got signed, we had made a majority of the last record anyway, so labels kind of knew what they were getting, and there was never any question as to whether we’d be able to do those things. I also think it’s helpful that we’ve been able to work with people who are generally supportive of the things that we want to do. But I think that’s mostly just a case of keeping your brain on

— thinking every day about what you’re doing so you don’t end up, I don’t know, playing on a stage [with] a giant soda can or something.

Are you anxious at all about the next record? It seems like most of Chvrches’ music was produced in a relatively short amount of time up to this point. I guess. I mean, for us it probably doesn’t feel

as fast as it does to you guys in the public because we were making the record for a really long time before we started touring. And now we’re on the road a lot, so there’s not a lot of time for writing new things. I think it’s kind of about focusing on what’s important, and for us it’s finishing touring this record and writing and recording another one in pretty much exactly the same way that we did the first time. I think when you lose sight of that, you kind of lose sight of where you’re coming from or what you’re supposed to be doing. I’ll be quite happy when it’s time to go home and get holed up in a studio again.

Speaking of home, any restaurant recommendations in Glasgow? I find it quite hard to find a place

for good curry when we’re on the road. We’ll be on tour, and I’ll want some curry — like really want some spicy vegetables — and then we’ll go someplace, and it’ll be terrible. When we go home, we’re quite into that because there’s quite a healthy Indian restaurant scene in Glasgow. So we go to this place called Mother India, which is really good. I’d recommend that. And it’s really close to the Kelvingrove Art Museum, which is really nice to go and visit. Chvrches plays the Majestic Ventura Theater (26 S. Chestnut St., Ventura) on Tuesday, April 15, at 8 p.m. Call 653-0721 or visit for tickets and info.

U.K. electronic artist Bonobo



NORTHERN EXPOSURE Bonobo Talks Record Shopping, Party Starting by Aly Comingore


f you’re headed to Coachella this weekend, you’ve likely already marked Bonobo down on your Friday-night to-do list. For those sticking a little closer to home, though, the U.K. artist makes a midweek stop at the Majestic Ventura Theater on Thursday, April 17. The appearance comes in the midst of a yearlong tour for the electronic guru, who is alternating between deejay mode and full-production live shows as he globe-trots in support of his latest record, The North Borders. Like past Bonobo efforts, Borders is a fully immersive affair. Built off a steady foundation of beats, loops, and samples, the album is filled with slow-growing, symphony-fueled orchestrations. Guest vocalists like Erykah Badu and Grey Reverend make appearances, but it’s Bonobo’s imagery-conjuring soundscapes that tend to hold court here, making for the kind of pulsing, emotive grooves that festival mongers adore. Below, I caught up via phone with Bonobo (a k a Simon Green) during a recent four-day tour break in his new home of New York City. How are the shows going? Good. We just went to Europe. We’ve been going nonstop with the live show since last April. We’ve pretty much gone twice around the world. But the shows have been going really good. The set is growing and evolving; I feel like it’s getting to a higher level each time we do it. The tour schedule is a pretty even mix of live shows and deejay sets. How do the two compare? Well, I’ve been deejaying longer than I’ve been doing the live shows, and they’re different in that I don’t think people approach the deejay shows in the same way as the live shows. I started deejaying in clubs, where it’s more about the environment and the music, whereas the live shows are more of an immersive experience. It’s more of a party, the deejaying. I’ll often play a show and then deejay an after-party, and it’s very different; the live show is more of a spectacle, and the deejay set is more about the vibe of the party and the dance floor. I love it. You really only have to use one half of your brain when you’re deejaying. [Laughs.] But really, I still get a huge amount of joy out of it. For me, I really like listening to music really loud. I’m dancing as much as anyone else when I’m deejaying. The North Borders feels pretty different, infl uence-wise, than your previous records. How has the writing process changed for you over the years? It’s changed a lot. When I made my first record, I was very naïve, and I didn’t know much about production, and I had a very basic amount of equipment, and I was just digging through vinyl for samples in a very old-fashioned way. It was very loop-based and very cut-and-paste, and that’s the way I started out. Over the years, I’ve expanded my production chops a little more and learned about compression and recording and multitracking and using a string section. I’ve been learning as I go. It’s all been a process of experimentation from day one. I think I’ve got a bigger palette now. That’s the main difference. But there’s also a lot of charm in the naïveté of those first records because I was trying to emulate things I didn’t understand. What do you like about working solo? I was in bands when I was younger, and that’s a lot of the reason I started working solo — it was always a compromise. I liked the idea that I could layer myself and all my ideas; it was very refreshing at the time, the idea of creating this sonic template that was my own. Now I use guest musicians on the records, but it’s one percent of the process, really. It sounds very collaborative, but it’s actually two years of me working on a record and one afternoon of working in a studio with someone. Bonobo plays the Majestic Ventura Theater (26 S. Chestnut St., Ventura) on Thursday, April 17, at 8 p.m. Call 653-0721 or visit for tickets and info.

Bold moves and big Ideas from Arts & Lectures Best-selling Author of Blink and The Tipping Point An Evening with

Malcolm Gladwell FRI, APR 11 / 8 PM / ARLINGTON THEATRE Tickets going fast!

“Intoxicating... a master craftsman, an outlier amongst authors.” Huffington Post

Sponsored in part by Westmont College UP FROM BELOW: Australian psych rockers Jagwar Ma make their Santa Barbara debut this Wednesday, April 16, in between back-to-back Coachella weekends. by Aly Comingore


DESERT DAZE: Say what you will about the annual two-weekend desert deluge known as Coachella. Now 14 years into its hot, sweaty, music-filled run, many old-school Coachellagoers will tell you the fest has jumped the shark, the crowds have ballooned to unwieldy proportions, the lineup just “ain’t what it used to be,” et cetera, et cetera. As a decade-long veteran of the event, I’ll simply say that if you’re headed to Indio for the first time this year, you’re guaranteed to have a great time. Just, dear god, don’t forget the sunscreen.

DOUBLE EXPOSURE: Beck plays two shows on two nights at the Arlington Theatre before headlining both Sundays of Coachella’s two-weekendlong run. For those of us staying local, though, the next two weeks are bringing with them some of the hottest shows the  will host all year. And if you’re up for some late nights and a little bit of driving, it promises to be one hell of an action-packed good time. The party kicks off a solid 48 hours before the Coachella gates even open when Beck makes a two-night stop at the Arlington Theatre this Wednesday and Thursday, April 9 and 10. (He headlines Coachella on Sunday, April 13 and 20.) Touring on the heels of his recently released Morning Phase, Beck’s Arlington sets are sure to focus on his mellower, more intimate jams. Here’s hoping this also means a solid resurrection of the tunes from his 2002 acoustic opus, Sea Change. Tickets for

Thursday night’s show can be purchased online by visiting Also on this week’s Coachella overflow list is Aussie psych-rock duo Jagwar Ma, which makes its Santa Barbara debut on Wednesday, April 16, at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club. (The band plays both Friday afternoons in Indio.) Like fellow Down Under guitar noodlers Tame Impala, Jagwar Ma create tunes that are dizzying exercises in layering and soundscape creation. Pedals, loops, and synthesized effects are exacted with a heavy hand, resulting in some beautiful sonic palettes — not to mention some seriously mind-expanding instrumental compositions. (See “Backwards Berlin,” from the band’s 2013 LP, Howlin, for a taste.) Wednesday night’s show kicks off at 8 p.m. For tickets and info, call 962-7776 or visit GOULDEN GIRL: Working our way south, the Coachella cup continues to overflow at the Majestic Ventura Theater, thanks to shows from Bonobo (see p. 89), Chvrches (see p. 87), and the incomparable Ellie Goulding, who headlines the venue on Wednesday, April 16. Operating somewhere in between the dancefloor-igniting fury of Robyn and the glittering synth spectacular of Florence + The Machine, Goulding pens the kind of electro-pop torch songs that were meant for hot desert nights. (Check out “Anything Could Happen” for a nice little crash course.) The young singer makes an impressive top-of-the-marquee Coachella return on Friday, April 11 (and again on Friday, April 18). And in between those shows, she hits the stage at the Majestic for one very sold-out night. But, as anyone who’s seen Ellie live will tell you, this is one ticket well worth the trouble of a Craigslist search. For info, call 653-0721 or visit ALSO THIS WEEK: On Monday, April 14, the Eastside Boys & Girls Club hosts N.Y.C. roots musician Vincent Cross. Touring in support of his latest, folk-centric offering, 2013’s A Town Called Normal, Cross will plug in for a live taping and post-set Q&A as part of the club’s Live from the Music Box sessions. The event starts at 4 p.m. and is free and open to all ages. Call ■ 962-2382 for info.

Whether by cosmic coincidence or attitudinal self-alignment, Jason Bateman’s snarky dark comedy Bad Words will naturally find itself as a logical alphabetical neighbor of Billy Bob Thornton’s Bad Santa. Both films feature politically incorrect, antiheroic protagonists who freely fling about bad words and cynical, selfserving ’tudes, while also gleefully violating the implicit tenet in film and theater, whereby all is fair game — except when it comes to harming (or harming the feelings of) children or animals. Bateman, making a solid and rather risqué debut as director and actor here, plays a master of words — both the bad kind and in vocabulary and spelling chops — with intellectual child abuse in mind. Sneaking through a loophole in the rules of a national spelling bee championship, he becomes a 40-year-old word gymnast, competing with wee ones a quarter his age, and without his hard-edged cunning, much to the chagrin of parents and administrators. But he is a cool customer, driven by an ulterior motive (best left unrevealed here), and at the ready with cutting remarks and evil schemes for his foes. Natch, as in Bad Santa, there are redemptive, mostly late-breaking warm spots in screenwriter Andrew Dodge’s narrative, including a friendship with a nerdy, unflappable Indian-American kid (Rohan Chand) and his casual-sexual banter with a journalist (the wonderful, underrated Kathryn Hahn). In the center of it all, Bateman is the right man for the job(s) here. While he burst onto the screen as the lone voice of reason in TV’s ingenious Arrested Development, his filmography thus far has revealed Bateman to be a bit of a dark comic genius. In the final determination, Bad Words, at its best and on its own rogue comedy terms, is pretty &!#*?@-ing good. (JW) Plaza de Oro

✯ Captain America: The Winter Soldier (136 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of violence, gunplay, action throughout)

Reviewed on page 95. Camino Real (2- D and 3-D)/ Metro 4 (2-D and 3-D)

✯ Draft Day (109 mins.; PG-13: brief strong language, sexual references) Ivan Reitman’s football movie opens a little stagy; the backroom dialogue feels gussied-up, and the absence of profanity in the office behind the locker room is just plain unbelievable. But once the skin trading begins — a little clock in the corner of the screen keeps reminding us when the

actual NFL draft will open — the script takes on a nicely burnished complexity. The script is pure Hollywood. Every scene is fraught with conflicting emotions, while the film’s trajectory moves us forward toward absolute doom — until it suddenly isn’t. Maybe the stars are a bit worn; it’s hard to imagine Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner as a viable couple, but makeup and talent heal the breach. But the real pleasures of Draft Day don’t emerge until Costner’s character starts sweating out details of the trades he’s making for his team, the loss-haunted Cleveland Browns. He’s offered the moon, but his guts warn him that safer might be better. Then suddenly the film blooms into a dynamic split-screen series of editing wonders. With tricks pioneered by the Wachowski siblings, Draft Day pokes out of boxes, follows protagonists across scenes in wipes, and dramatically pops and isolates them. It’s as if the screen has a will of its own. The movie itself dazzles, too. The story combining documentary realism — the NFL allowed Montecito Pictures to shoot the real live draft proceedings — with a whirl of postproduction tricks, making for two hours’ worth of magical sports news. Ironically, it took a bunch of filmmakers from Toronto to make a football movie full of gentle finesses. (DJP) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

✯ The Grand Budapest Hotel (100 mins.; R: language, some sexual content, violence)

Wes Anderson’s latest chronicles the adventures of Gustave H., a concierge at a famous European hotel, and the lobby boy he forges a lifelong friendship with. Grand Budapest is beautiful in all the right ways, but the whimsical plot is all quirks and turns of comic phrase. You will laugh and maybe cry, but it’s no Rushmore or Moonrise Kingdom. (DJP) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo Le Week-End (93 mins.; R: language,

A British couple returns to Paris to rekindle their romance. It’s hard to dismiss this sometimes dorky film, mostly due to the keen performances of the leads and a dazzling tour de force cameo by Jeff Goldblum. (DJP) Riviera Mr. Peabody & Sherman (92 mins.; PG: some mild action, brief rude humor)

Inventor, scientist, and adventurer Mr. Peabody travels back in time with his adopted boy to fix a rift in time. Despite some moments of punny brilliance, this Peabody is too well plotted and not half as well written as what the Bullwinkle gang mustered half a century ago. (DJP) Fiesta 5 (2-D)

✯ Muppets Most Wanted

(107 mins.;

PG: some mild action)

In the midst of a world tour, the Muppets get wrapped up in a European jewel-heist caper plotted by an evil Kermit the Frog look-alike and his sidekick. Even though Most Wanted boasts some of the same writers as the previous sequel and returns director James Bobin to the tale, it feels like it’s more about retaking Manhattan rather than scoring new generations. It goes on a bit too long, too. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

The Way We Were (118 mins.; PG: sexuality, language, drinking, smoking)

Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand star in this 1973 romantic drama about a couple whose political views and personal convictions drive them apart. Screens as part of the Future of the Past film series. Thu., Apr. 17, 7pm, UCSB’s Pollock Theater

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Freedom is the most important kind of joy you can seek right now. It’s also the most important subject to study and think about, as well as the most important skill to hone. I advise you to make sure that freedom is flowing through your brain and welling up in your heart and spiraling through your loins. Write synonyms for “freedom” on your arm with a felt-tip pen: liberation, emancipation, independence, leeway, spaciousness, carte blanche, self-determination, dispensation. Here’s one more tip: Connect yourself with people who love and cultivate the same type of freedom you do.

(June 21 - July 22): In 2007, J. K. Rowling finished writing the seventh volume of her seven Harry Potter books, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The day it was published it sold 11 million copies. But Rowling had actually written the final chapter of this last book way back in 1990, when she first conceived the story she was to spend the next 17 years working on. She knew the climax right from the beginning. I foresee a similar theme unfolding for you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. As you plot a project you will be developing for a long time to come, you will have a vision of what it will be when it becomes fully mature.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Are you thinking of linking your fortunes to a new ally? Or deepening your collaboration with a familiar ally? Have you fantasized about bonding intensely with a source that may be able to give you more of what you want and bring out more of the best in you? These prospects are worth contemplating, Libra. But I suggest you let your connection ripen a bit more before finalizing the shift. I’m not necessarily saying there’s a potential problem. I simply suspect that you need further exploration and additional information before you can make the smartest move possible.

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Capricorn author J. R. R. Tolkien spent 14 years working on The Lord of the Rings. In using a typewriter to produce over 1,200 pages, he relied solely on his two index fingers. He never learned the ten-finger typing method. I suppose it didn’t matter in the end. Presumably, his impediment didn’t affect the quality of his work, but only made it harder to accomplish and required him to spend a lot more time. Is there a fixable limitation on your own ability to achieve your dream, Capricorn? Is there some handicap you could, with effort, overcome? If so, now would be an excellent time to begin.




(Apr. 20 - May 20): It’s Love Your Messes Week, Taurus. In accordance with the astrological omens, you are authorized to love the hell out of the messes in your life — from the small, awkward knots of confusion to the big, beautiful heaps of fertile chaos. This is not a time to feel embarrassed or apologize for your messes, not a time to shy away from them or ignore them. On the contrary, you should explore them, celebrate them, and even take advantage of them. Whatever else they are, your messes are untapped sources of energy. Learn to love them for the mysterious lessons they keep teaching you. Love them for the courage and willpower they compel you to summon. Love them for the novelty they bring your way and the interesting stories they add to your personal legend.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Saturn has been in the sign of Scorpio since October 2012 and will be there until the end of 2014. (It will make another visit from June to September 2015.) What does that mean? I have a view of Saturn that’s different from many astrologers. They regard it as the planet of limitation, struggle, and difficulty. Here’s what I think: While Saturn may push you to be extra tough and work super hard, it also inspires you to cut away extraneous desires and home in on your deepest purpose. It motivates you to build strong structures that free you to express yourself with maximum efficiency and grace.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): “The truth’s superb surprise,” wrote poet Emily Dickinson, may be “too bright for our infirm delight.” Sometimes we’ve got to be careful about articulating what’s really going on. “The truth must dazzle gradually,” she said. If it hits us too fast and hard, it may be difficult to digest. So did Emily suggest that we should lie and deceive? No.“Tell all the truth,” she declared,“but tell it slant.” This is excellent advice for you in the coming days, Aquarius.


(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): “You cannot use butterfly language to communicate with caterpillars,” said psychologist Timothy Leary. That’s good advice for you to keep in mind in the near future. You might want to find a way to carry on constructive dialogues with people who have a hard time understanding you. It’s not necessarily that they are stupid or resistant to your charms. The problem is that they haven’t experienced some of the critical transformations you have. They can’t be expected to converse with you in your butterfly language. Are you willing and able to speak caterpillar?


(May 21 - June 20): “A snowball’s chance in hell” is an American idiom that’s equivalent to saying “it probably won’t happen.” After all, a snowball would instantly melt if exposed to the scorching fires that rage in the underworld. But what if there’s an exception to this axiom? Let’s call on another American idiom: “when hell freezes over.” It’s another way to say “it probably won’t happen.” But the truth is that now and then a cold front does indeed sweep through the infernal region, icing its flames. When that happens, a snowball’s prospects of surviving there improve dramatically. And that’s exactly what I predict will happen for you in the coming week.

(July 23 - Aug. 22): When you see your shadow, it’s usually right next to you. It’s there on the ground or floor, a fuzzy black shape that follows you around closely. But today I saw my shadow waving back at me from afar. I was standing on top of a hill, and the sun’s rays created a dusky version of me in the meadow way down below. I think this is a useful metaphor for an opportunity that’s available to you. In the coming days, you will be able to view the shadowy, undeveloped parts of your personality as if from a distance. That means you will have more objectivity about them, and thus greater compassion. You can get a calm, clear sense of how they might be mucking with your happiness and how you could transform them.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): When I took an intermediate painting class in college, our first assignment was to imitate an old master. My choice was the Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525-1569). I worked on reproducing his painting “The Fight Between Carnival and Lent” as precisely as I could. It was tedious and liberating. I invoked Bruegel’s spirit and prayed for his guidance. I sank my psyche deeply into his. By the end of the four-week process I’d learned a lot about painting. Given the current astrological omens, Sagittarius, I suggest you try something similar. Pick someone who excels at a way of working or a state of being that you would like to master yourself, and copy that person for a while. For best results, have fun with it. Play!

Rather, you are becoming an ever-more soulful version of your idiosyncratic self, evolving slowly but surely. You are not dazedly trudging along a narrow track laid down by thousands of sheep. Instead, you are lively and creative as you bushwhack a path for yourself through the wilderness. To celebrate this ongoing success, Pisces, I suggest you get yourself a new power object that symbolizes your inventive devotion.

Sour beers are the most envelope‑pushing ales imaginable, with pungent flavors causing many first‑timers to pucker, and not always with glee. This beer, from a Portland, Oregon brewery that’s focused on sours, makes a nice entry point, with enough yeasty life to give you the idea, but suavity, thanks to the barrel aging, to make it appeasing to those breaking into a new style. It also manages to appeal to the sour faithful, as it’s been laid down atop fresh pressed grapes for an additional three months, delivering the unique characteristics sour fanatics enjoy exploring.

The Restaurant Guy



Fire & Ice Museum Café


he Santa Barbara Museum of Art at  State Street has announced that Fire & Ice Events is the new operator for the Museum Café, with a vision that is a celebration of the “Art of Food.” The new eatery is now open with regular hours of Tuesday-Sunday 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. and st Thursdays 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. The café at the museum had been closed for about two months after the previous operator, Brenda Simon, decided to focus more effort on her catering business. Examples of the Fire & Ice Museum Café menu include salads, soups, sandwiches (including chicken banh mi, croque-monsieur panini, and grilled market vegetable); tasting platters that include cheese, hummus, fruits, olives and flatbread; and both savory and sweet pastries. The eatery also offers exclusive single-source coffee from the El Imposible region of El Salvador. A full menu is posted on the museum website at sbma .net/cafe. Peter Sonderegger, Fire & Ice’s creative director, comments, “We are so pleased to bring our philosophy of recreating, reinventing, and reimagining artful and flavorful cuisine to the Santa Barbara community, especially via the prestige of the Santa Barbara museum of Art.”

BREWS AT THE BEACH: The 2nd annual “Brews at the Beach” is being held on Saturday, April 12, from noon - 4 p.m. (11 a.m. for VIP) at Chase Palm Park soccer field. Patrons are invited to taste unlimited offerings from more than 40 brewery and five cider companies, as well as listen to local musicians perform. Tickets are currently on sale for $40 for general admission and $75 for VIP admission. For ticket purchase and information, visit TAP THAI REOPENS: Tap Thai restaurant, which closed their De la Vina Street location last month, has reopened at  State Street, the former home of Brummis. RUMOR MACHINE: Word on the street is that Crushcakes & Café, with three locations on the South Coast, is interested in finding a spot in the Funk Zone. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call. ELEPHANT BAR UPDATE: Every week my inbox is hit with rumors about possible tenants to replace now-closed Elephant Bar at  Firestone Road in Goleta. Recently I was contacted by a businessman named Clint Orr who says he would like to replace the E-Bar with a country-music dance hall named “Airport Honky Tonk.” Orr tells me that he has no lease but plans to contact the City of Santa Barbara, which owns the property, to see if there is any interest in his proposal. The dance hall would be operated by the nonprofit California Country Dance Foundation. BREAKFAST AT TACO BELL’S: Taco Bell is now

available locally for sometime because Santa Barbara was one of many test markets. The Waffle Taco and A.M. Crunchwrap are now offered nationwide as part of the largest menu expansion in Taco Bell history. “Fans already like to come to Taco Bell for lunch and dinner, and they share with us their love of late night. Now they’re not just asking, but telling us they want Taco Bell Breakfast,” said Taco Bell president Brian Niccol. Taco Bell’s full breakfast menu is offered at more than 5,500 participating restaurants nationwide and features the following items: the Waffle Taco, the A.M. Crunchwrap, Cinnabon Delights, Breakfast Burrito with Bacon, Breakfast Burrito with Sausage, Steak and Eggs Burrito, A.M. Grilled Taco with Bacon, A.M. Grilled Taco with Sausage, Sausage Flatbread Melt, Hash Brown, Premium Hot Coffee, and Tropicana Orange Juice. 65TH ANNIVERSARY: You have probably seen the AJAX penguin van around town at some point. AJAX Santa Barbara Refrigeration at  East Montecito Street, a local industry leader to many well-known clients in the restaurant/hospitality industry and many other businesses and institutions, is celebrating its 65th anniversary. AJAX’s core business is in commercial refrigeration, ice-making equipment, full-service ice machine leasing, and preventive maintenance programs. Recent projects include work at the Santa Barbara Bowl and the renovation at the El Encanto Hotel. Sales & Leasing Manager Michael Gardner tells me, “It is very exciting to be part of AJAX’s 65th year. We have been making huge changes to the way we operate and communicate in the 21st century. We are using technology to help the company grow and compete, but we will always offer an old-fashioned personal touch and customer service that has been a Santa Barbara tradition for 65 years.” For more information, call 963-1322 or visit

Updating District Guidelines to Address Greenhouse Gas Emissions under the California Environmental Quality Act The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District’s Environmental Review Guidelines provide procedures for the District and other agencies to use when reviewing projects under the California Environmental Quality Act, or CEQA. The District’s Guidelines are applied directly to projects for which the District is the lead agency under CEQA, including District permits, rules, and plans. The state’s CEQA guidelines have included a framework for addressing climate change impacts since 2010. The District proposes to update its Environmental Review Guidelines to include guidance for evaluating the significance of the impacts of greenhouse gas emissions from new or modified stationary sources. The District will lead the workshops listed above to provide the framework and gather input from stakeholders and the public. Draft revisions to the District’s Guidelines will be developed and presented at another public workshop for input. Proposed revisions and a summary of input from the public workshops will be reviewed by the District’s Community Advisory Council, and may be brought to the District’s Board for adoption. The following individuals or groups may be interested in attending these workshops:

• Proponents of projects with new or modified stationary sources of air pollution in Santa Barbara County; • Agencies in Santa Barbara County that serve as lead agencies under CEQA; • Concerned members of the public; • Agencies, organizations and industries involved in climate change/greenhouse gas impact evaluation and mitigation.
