“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.

“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.

You’ll Never Guess This Band’s Radical New Way to Sell Music

MISS PIGGY Squeaky-toy squeals and genteel oinks let us know that Piggy’s in the joint, which means that Indyites missing from their desks can usually be found down on the floor feeding Piggy her favorite meal of apple bits and Cheerios. The micro-pig joins us when she needs babysitting … er … pig-sitting, and she’ll climb into our laps and let us pet her soft bristles. The diminutive piglet roughhouses with the dogs wheeling around here, too, wagging her tail like the best of them and sleeping in a pile with her doggy mates when she’s tired.

Morua Pleads Guilty Former Capps Aide Faces 20 to Life

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

The body of Santa Maria resident Benito Flores, 46, was found by a hiker in a tidal pool near Mussel Rock at the south end of Guadalupe Dunes Park and recovered by the Sheriff’s Department’s Search and Rescue and diving teams on 4/11. Flores was swept out to sea following a baptism at the park on 3/30; two others were also carried out, but they made it back to shore. The search for Flores involved many agencies, including the Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Coast Guard. California Department of Fish and Wildlife officers arrested two commercial fishermen — 53-year-old John Wilson of Santa Ynez and 23-year-old Kai Griffin of Buellton — on charges of conspiracy and grand theft, alleging the pair stole live rock crabs from fellow fishermen and took other catches off the dock at the Santa Barbara Harbor. The pair reportedly carried out the thefts in the early morning hours and then sold the crabs, along with several illegally landed species, at the Hollywood Farmers Market. PAU L WELLM AN

News of the Week

FALLEN SOLDIER: By all accounts, Raymond Morua was a hardworking and respected champion of veterans’ rights, and his sudden fall from grace came as a shock to many.



ressed in a dark suit and quietly crying as he pleaded guilty to fatal DUI hit-and-run charges Tuesday morning, Raymond Morua ended a painful chapter in the lives of many who knew and loved victim Mallory Dies, but his words continued to hurt at least one person in the courtroom. “It was hard to hear the voice of the man who killed my daughter,” said Matt Dies. Just after midnight on December 6, Morua was driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.17 (more than twice the legal limit) when he hit 27-year-old Mallory Dies as she crossed Anacapa Street. He was arrested after speeding off and crashing into a nearby tree. Dies suffered severe head injuries in the collision and was taken off life support five days later. Through a plea deal proposed by the District Attorney’s Office, Morua, 32, admitted to felony charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and fleeing the scene of an accident. He also admitted to two prior DUIs, but the plea agreement allows him to avoid the seconddegree murder charge he previously faced. Morua will be sentenced on May 28 to 20 years to life in state prison, and his crimes count as a strike on his record. (Prosecutors and Morua’s defense attorney, however, disagree on how the prison time will be calculated. Deputy DA Arnie Tolks said Morua will become eligible for parole after 10 years; defense attorney Darryl Genis claims it is 17 years. The figure will be finalized at a later date.) At the time of the accident, Morua — a Ventura County native, UCSB graduate, and Iraq War veteran — was employed as a district representative for Congressmember Lois Capps. Following his Army career, Morua had openly admitted to problems with alcohol brought about by PTSD, but he promised he had overcome his demons. He had served as president of UCSB’s 10


april 17, 2014

Student Veterans Organization (SVO) and as board chair for Future Leaders of America; he recently was working to broker peace among the quarrelsome factions of the Veterans Memorial Building. Despite his accolades, some have since questioned Morua’s outreach tactics when organizing informal veteran events, like SVO get-togethers with kegs and hard alcohol. Of some of his inebriated group addresses, one former SVO member said, “I wouldn’t call them rants, but I wouldn’t call them speeches either.” During his time in County Jail, Morua has reportedly been tutoring fellow inmates on their GED requirements, going to recovery meetings, and reading. His initial request for books on Vietnamese POW camps was denied by jail staff, and he has since been given access to history and philosophy texts. Dies, who graduated from UCSB and was a popular downtown bartender, is remembered and missed for her warm and witty personality, as well as for her fondness of not only the South Coast nightlife scene but also heady literature and political documentaries. Hundreds attended her seaside memorial service — an outpouring of love and grief continues to reverberate throughout Santa Barbara and Corona, where she’s from — and her death inspired a close group of relatives and friends to form an antidrunk-driving campaign called VowMal. Outside the courtroom Tuesday, Matt Dies said he was content with the plea deal, explaining it will guarantee that Morua spends significant time in prison and spare the Dies family the painful process of a lengthy trial. After thanking Tolks and the DA’s Office for their fair handling of the case, Dies criticized Capps’s office for asserting that Morua was not representing the congressmember in an official capacity that night. Dies has filed a claim with the House of Representatives that alleges the governmental

body bears legal and financial responsibility for Morua’s actions, and questions over the matter are the subject of a Santa Barbara New-Press investigative series. “The dishonest attitude that we’ve seen from the congresswoman’s office is disturbing,” said Dies, echoing statements given by Genis during previous hearings.“There was a human decency that should have been displayed that wasn’t … . Her stance is unsupportable.” Dies went on to say that if the House is ordered to pay financial damages, much of it will go toward VowMal efforts. Genis said he was pleased by the “swiftness” with which he and the DA’s Office were able to reach a settlement and that he was “proud” of Morua for taking responsibility for Dies’s death. He said he hopes Capps can “take a page from Morua’s book” and admit her accountability. Genis — after approaching Matt Dies and expressing his condolences as a fellow father — also explained that he hopes to organize the production of an anti-drinking-and-driving video with support from Dies, the DA’s Office, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving that could be broadcast during talk shows and perhaps “go viral” online. Morua would participate from jail, he explained. Following Tuesday’s hearing, Capps issued a prepared statement that reads: “I am hopeful today’s court developments bring a small sense of peace to the family and friends of Mallory Rae Dies, and my thoughts and prayers remain with them. The loss of their loved one was and is a tragedy. It is clear she had an impact on many people’s lives.  I know what it is like to lose a child, and no parent should have to experience that. “The [Santa Barbara New-Press] story is full of inaccuracies, but because  there is a pending legal matter against the House of Representatives, I am not able to comment any ■ further.”


Desmond Louis Edwards, prosecutor Mary Baron, and defense attorney Mindi Boulet

Desmond Louis Edwards, the 17-year-old Los Angeleno charged with severely wounding a UCSB police officer at last weekend’s Deltopia mega party in Isla Vista, pleaded not guilty Monday to multiple felony counts including resisting an officer and assaulting a peace officer with the allegation of inflicting great bodily harm. Authorities have said the event sparked the civil unrest that consumed the seaside college town’s streets for more than four hours. On Monday, a judge reduced his bail from $100,000 to $75,000 with conditions that he reside at his father’s home in L.A. and only come to town for court hearings. Edwards will be tried as an adult, and he faces a minimum sentence of probation and a maximum of one of 12 years in state prison.

LINE IN THE SAND: Hillary Aidun (right) with the Center for Biological Diversity speaks out against fracking. The boogeyman of oil extraction — hydraulic fracturing, better known as “fracking” — was the subject of a public hearing put on by the Assembly Select Committee on Coastal Protection last Friday. Billed as an information-gathering session, the hearing focused on a documented lack of coordination and cooperation between federal regulators and their state counterparts and featured testimony from environmental activists who have lobbied for more robust oversight since the recent discovery that fracking has occurred off Santa Barbara’s shoreline. “We have been ground zero, apparently, for experimenting in offshore fracking,” said State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, who sits on the committee with Assemblymembers Das Williams and Mark Stone. “For a process that has such significant environmental impacts, we need to have more data, more updated data, and the State of California is entitled to be part of that discussion.” Noting that it took nine months for the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (formerly the Minerals Management Service) to respond to his letter of concern last summer, Williams said the explanation he received for asking why state officials weren’t notified of the divisive drilling technique was, “‘We’ve long treated these unconventional techniques as conventional techniques.’” Williams disagreed. “These are not conventional techniques,” he said. But a panel of energy industry experts argued Friday that the government’s current level of fracking oversight is sufficient and that any additional rules — like those included in Senate Bill 4 — would amount to overkill. “The regulations that apply to both federal and state waters are comprehensive,” said Peter Candy, with Santa Barbara law firm Hollister & Brace. “There are no regulatory gaps that I can see.” Candy, an area resident, said his opinion came not from a connection to the petroleum and gas industry but a vested interest in the Santa Barbara Channel. “I’m not interested in swimming and surfing in waste from hydraulic fracturing,” he said, “but I personally am not con— Tyler Hayden cerned.”

Poway near San Diego. Singer beat out 64 other applications for the position and called his upcoming departure “bittersweet.” Singer’s exit adds to the city’s shifting pieces. Its Public Works director has left, its finance director is leaving on 4/18, and Councilmember Ed Easton, in escrow on a house outside city limits, will likely resign soon; replacement plans for all positions are in the works. The two candidates for 2nd District Supervisor — incumbent Janet Wolf and Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves — squared off Wednesday morning at the Bacara Resort in a debate hosted by the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce. Issues discussed included Goleta Beach, the county’s controversial tax-sharing deal, and Measure M. A second debate is planned for 4/23; mail ballots go out on 5/5, and the primary election is on 6/3. Janet Wolf added another $20,000 in Service Employees International Union (SEIU) money to her campaign coffers last week, bringing her total SEIU donations to $80,000. The most recent donation came one day after Roger

Aceves claimed Wolf erred in not disclosing her SEIU donations prior to board discussions on SEIU-related matters; the Fair Political Practices Commission states that such disclosure rules don’t apply to boards of supervisors. In March and April, Aceves received financial support from Santa Maria Energy ($14,081), oil company ERG Operating Company, LLC ($9,500), and the Santa Ynez Band of Mission Indians ($6,000).

A mix of experts in law, education, and social media contributed to a discussion about the pitfalls of cyberspace at San Marcos High School last Friday morning. Organized by the AAPLE (Accelerated Academic Program for Leadership and Enrichment) Academy, State Sen. HannahBeth Jackson, Facebook’s Krista Kobeski, Deputy District Attorney Sanford Horowitz, and UCSB professor and school psychologist Shane Jimerson spoke about Internet precautions and potential repercussions of online conduct. “We can pass all sorts of laws,” Sen. Jackson said to the students, explaining there are many currently moving through state legislatures, “but the real power in this is you.” ■

Gaviota Homes Approved


BY R AY F O R D he battle to determine the character of the Gaviota Coast played out again at a hearing by the California Coastal Commission of an appeal of the Paradiso del Mare development by several environmental groups. While the project consists of just two residential estates, it has stirred powerful opposition within the environmental community over the precedent it could create for other nearby properties when they come before the Coastal Commission. Jana Zimmer, who represents the tri-county area on the commission, referred to the critical importance the project has to the Gaviota Coast in her opening remarks. “First and last thing we need to remember is that this is the gateway project to the Gaviota Coast,” she said. “It is small in its scope, but it has consequences that go far beyond the decision that we make on these two residences. It is going to set the model.” In the midst of the back and forth regarding the project’s merits, Commission Chair Steve Kinsey from Marin County threw a curveball when he asked the developer’s representative, Chris Yelich of Brooks Street, to comment on his negotiations with commission staff. With Yelich’s permission, Commission Counsel read from a list of proposed revisions that included reducing the size of the develop-

ment’s water line, agreeing not to interfere with the public access to the Naples surf area, limiting sound levels during sea lion pupping season and agreeing to include both a trail and vertical easement at Tomate West in any future development proposal on the Naples lots. Ellison Folk, attorney for Surfrider and spokesperson for the appellants, was not happy with the unexpected terms.“We were not provided any notice of this … and to have this brought up after testimony was closed … is completely inappropriate,” he said. The motion carried 8-4 in favor of the developers.“I am shocked and confused by the breach of commission practice that occurred,”Attorney Ana Citrin of the Law Offices of Marc Chytilo said in an email later. “The modifications do not come even close to resolving our appeal issues, or even all the issues raised by commissioners during the hearing.” The fight will now play out in the courtroom. On March 7, 2014, Surfrider and the Gaviota Coast Coalition filed suit in Santa Barbara County Superior Court charging a failure by the county to “take legally adequate measures to avoid significant impacts that the Project will have on these resources.” Citrin estimates that it could take as long as a year for a final ruling on the lawsuit.

TB Outbreak Kept Quiet


BY T Y L E R H AY D E N anta Barbara health officials have been quietly working for months to contain a tuberculosis (TB) outbreak and are now ramping up suppression efforts after publicly announcing that a Santa Maria High School student has the infectious disease. While the single diagnosis is a cause for concern, prompting both a community meeting last Friday and mass screenings at the school this week, the County of Santa Barbara Public Health Department’s grander ground plan has been actively kept under the radar for the past six months due to fears of alienating an already marginalized population and concerns about political backlash. In 2013, 26 Santa Barbara residents were diagnosed with TB — 16 from North County, nine of Oaxacan descent — along with 10 more so far this year. At least one person died in 2013 from TB, which typically attacks the lungs, and many were experiencing the advanced, more contagious stages. Three children younger than 10 years old were diagnosed last year, and one was left permanently disabled. Though 20 or so people get TB every year in Santa Barbara County, the recent outbreak is noteworthy because the cases involved more kids, later stages of progression, and stronger resistance to medication. Five of the Oaxacan cases have similar genetic patterns, meaning they are from the same transmission chain. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declares an outbreak when three or more cases display that genetic link, and last week’s high school student case was connected to the chain. The Public Health Department is currently conducting

genetic testing of each new case to determine if they’re related. In February, the Public Health Department’s Dr. Charity Thoman alerted North County doctors to the problem, particularly within the Oaxacan population, and she said that in recent weeks, Public Health nurses have been combing North County communities “day and night” in search of signs of the disease. It’s challenging, said Thoman, because some of the Oaxacans may be undocumented and harbor a distrust of government workers. Plus, many of them only speak Mixteco. When nurses make house calls, they are trained to listen for coughs coming from back rooms, Thoman said, noting that rough estimates put the North County Oaxacan population at anywhere between 10,000 and 30,000. “When we address each case, that’s routine,” Thoman said. “But when we started looking at how they were linked, we became concerned about ongoing transmission. It was no longer business as usual.” Though she’s working with state officials on “creative ways to stop the spread,” Thoman expects more cases from Santa Maria High School. Because the TB is airborne, students sitting close together in tight classrooms are especially susceptible. Those experiencing coughs, fever, night sweats, and weight loss for more than two weeks should immediately ask their doctor for a TB test. While an estimated three million California residents carry the bacteria that causes the disease, only about 10 percent of them will come down with active TB, which can be cured with an intensive 6- to 18-month ■ regime of antibiotics.

Edgy Drought Frustration



decided tone of “edgy frustration” crept into the Santa Barbara City Council discussion about efforts to respond to the driest and most sudden drought in Santa Barbara’s history, to quote Councilmember Gregg Hart, as councilmembers wondered with evident impatience why more isn’t being done faster. Although City Hall has set aside $3.3 million to buy new water, efforts to secure additional supplies have yet to bear fruit. The most promising proposal — to buy water from Vandenberg Air Force Base — is iffy at best and would hardly be enough. By contrast, Central Valley rice farmers are offering 10,000 acre-feet — a major amount — and at relatively affordable prices, but as much as 75 percent of that could be lost in carrying charges to offset environmental damages already inflicted on the San Joaquin Delta, through which it must pass. Likewise, efforts to begin construction on a new reclaimed-water system has been set back twice now by bid protests filed by prospective contractors. Making matters worse, the Coastal Commission has just expressed serious questions about the validity of City Hall’s permits for the mothballed desalination plant. The desal plant has long been regarded as City Hall’s ace in the hole if the drought persists. But with $20 million in restart costs, the sticker shock has proved prohibitive. As other supplies have dwindled, Councilmembers Bendy White and Gregg Hart have grown increasingly impa-

tient that City Hall be ready to go with the desal plant, just in case. A Coastal Commission planner took exception with the desal plant’s “old-school” water-intake valve located on the ocean floor. The commission has required more recent desal proposals to “drill” water from beneath the ocean floor — in deference to the health of aquatic biota. In the meantime, the council conceptually approved plans to dramatically increase — by 103 percent — how much it charges residents who use the most water, scaling back the rate hikes such that that “lifeline” consumers — who use the least — will experience only a bump of 40 cents a month. The hope is to give customers a financial incentive to cut back consumption by 20 percent. They’ve already achieved a 15 percent reduction since the drought was declared two months ago. City Hall is paying residents to replace their backyard vegetation with drought-tolerant varieties. In the last three months, City Hall conservation specialists have visited 221 households to provide water efficiency assistance. The new water rates, which will be formally introduced later this month, will go into effect July 1. For the hypothetical “average” household, monthly water bills will increase by $10.64. That will help offset the $8 million revenue shortfall City Hall experiences because of reduced water sales and droughtimposed costs. ■



Big Plans for Big House

heriff Bill Brown provided the supervisors with a visual and verbal view of the planned North County Jail on Tuesday, replete with projections for the facility’s design, staffing levels, and construction plans. Brown said the process is on time and on budget, with $80 million in state money set aside for construction and a revenue-growth-reliant plan to pay for the $15.8 million in operating costs — slightly less than originally assumed — but ended his presentation by acknowledging the threat that Measure M could pose. Brown started with the building’s design, which is meant to replicate California’s missions, as “missions were places of respite for weary travelers, but they were also places that facilitated redemption and revitalization for people.” At 140,000 square feet, the facility — slated to open in early 2018 at the intersection of Betteravia and Black roads in Santa Maria — will offer 376 beds with potential to expand to 1,500. Brown, calling the Main Jail “Santa Barbara’s version of the Winchester Mystery House” with its varied designs and infrastructure, said the new facility will offer housing units better-suited to supervision and selfcontainment, each with their own rooms for video visitation and medical exams. Seventy-three custody deputies will be hired — all hires will be staggered over four stages starting this August — but only one deputy on average will be responsible for supervising 32-64 inmates. Brown said that ratio was standard, but Supervisor Doreen Farr took issue with it. “Wow. I just have to tell you, I wouldn’t want to be responsible for 64 people for four hours at a church picnic,” she said. Tuesday’s discussion didn’t include details on the additional 228-bed, 52,000-square-foot

recidivism-reducing wing, the construction of which will be paid for with a $39 million state grant and 10 percent match from the county; details on that wing are expected this summer. Talk of the jail’s operating costs veered — as it has for most meetings recently — to Measure M, which the board also discussed later in the day. Championed by Supervisor Peter Adam, the ordinance would require anywhere from $17 million-$39 million per year (more than originally thought) to maintain county-owned roads, parks, and buildings.“I would categorize it as the right idea but the wrong approach,” Brown said Tuesday. Without new revenue sources, grants, or a savings plan similar to that for the jail, the measure’s passage could mean ■ cuts to public safety, officials have said.

Goleta Opposing Venoco


BY M AT T K E T T M A N N end a letter to the state opposing Venoco’s proposal to resume oil production from an old pier off Sandpiper Golf Course? Or, if the State Lands Commission approves the project, make a preemptive deal with the Carpinteria-based energy company to allow processing at the Ellwood Onshore Facility (EOF), located between the links and the Bacara Resort? Or do both? Those were the contradictory decisions before the Goleta City Council on Tuesday night, as councilmembers determined how to prepare for the outcome of the April 23 State Lands hearing on the project in Sacramento. But, as a dozen environmentalists lined up to lobby for opposition to Venoco and against any deal, Venoco spokesperson Steve Greig made the decision easy, explaining that if the city sent its strongly worded letter, the company would no longer support the deal, which would have led to the quick removal of one of the two exist-

ing piers, kicked royalties to the city, and put a 17-year limit on the resumed pier-based well. The city is stuck in a tough spot because if the state approves the extraction, but the city does not allow it to be processed at the EOF, then it will likely be processed over the water, on the second pier, which is the most eco-frightening option. By the time councilmembers were to deliberate, there was only one unanimous decision to make: Send the letter to the State Lands Commission and make no decision on the deal at all. Meanwhile, Venoco’s last-minute fastball may have only triggered more animosity from the city’s decision makers, as more than one — and many of the public speakers — spoke of relooking at amortization of the EOF, which is zoned as a nonconforming use of recreational space. “My hope and my desire and my vision is that this will be an official recreation area in my lifetime,” said Mayor Michael Bennett. ■ aPrIl 17, 2014

Cafeteria Queen CONT’D

Nancy Weiss Heads a Reimagined School Food Program



one are the days when a hefty, hair-netted woman scooped slop onto kids’ Styrofoam trays and called it lunch. Nor does Taco Bell truck hundreds of beef tacos to Santa Barbara cafeterias any longer. But despite the movement to reform school lunches and completely abandon the “heat and serve” model, staff still face challenges like the stigma associated with “cafeteria food,” finicky taste buds, and food waste. Enter Nancy Weiss, an unlikely cafeteria lady who spent 13 years in the private sector — she launched SOhO Restaurant & Music Club in 1986, among other ventures — before switching to the public one. Weiss worked for more than a decade as cafeteria manager of Goleta Valley Junior High School and is now at the helm of Santa Barbara Unified School District’s $6.1 million, 90-person food operation. Weiss frequently visits the 10 district kitchens and, when back at the office, prefers to bounce on an exercise ball rather than sit in a desk chair. Nearly 40 percent of district students receive a free or reduced lunch. Weiss blends government subsidies — 75 percent of her budget comes from the feds — and student lunch money to feed 6,500 mouths each day. (At the high schools, a full-priced lunch is $3.25 and a reduced one is 40 cents.) “Kids spend eight hours of the day at school,” Weiss said. “It’s part of our responsibility as educators.”


In fact, Weiss wishes all students ate for free. “I can see getting crucified for that, but we’re in public education,” she said. “We need to take it one step further.” At La Cumbre Junior High School, where more than 75 percent of students are low-income, everyone eats for free, and the same is true at La Cuesta High School and a handful of the elementary schools.“Once everybody could eat for free, there was no stigma. It’s been great,” said La Cumbre’s Principal Jo Ann Caines, explaining that her staff seeks out students who aren’t eating lunch.“In a low-income home, fruit is a luxury,” she added. Regardless of improvements in grub, students are still lured by convenience-store snacks and fast food. “My biggest challenge is reeducating the palate,”Weiss said.“People’s taste buds are really damaged.” Describing herself as “cutting edge” but “old school,” Weiss wants high school students to stay on campus during lunchtime. To entice students to stick around,

MANY MOUTHS: School food czar Nancy Weiss is responsible for feeding 6,500 hungry kids every day.

she’s organized food trucks called Mobile Cafés (donated by the Orfalea Foundation) and brown paper bags (to resemble homemade lunches). The food services department also took over all student stores, which previously sold chips and candy. District administrators are currently looking for ways to more easily identify students who are eligible for free or reduced meals; elementary students are more likely to fill out the form, but high school students are often more embarrassed to turn in the application that comes in a bulky summer packet.


One of Weiss’s first moves as food czar was replacing Tyson chicken nuggets with raw eightpiece birds, and now 80 percent of school meals are produced from “scratch cooking.” Once a month, the district receives eggs and frozen chickens, pork, and vegetables at a highly subsidized rate of $3 per 40-pound crate. About 63 percent, or $1.1 million, of the budget is spent on food produced in the tri counties, with the lion’s share of pantry items like rice and canned goods coming from Jordano’s.

second sandwich in his daughter’s lunch so her friend didn’t have to eat in the cafeteria. Despite progress in dispelling this misconception, he said,“We’re not out of the woods.” “School food reform is such a new movement,” said Kathleen DeChadenedes, who runs the School Food Initiative with the Orfalea Foundation. “Food needs to look good, feel good, and smell good … . It’s the private-sector mentality brought into a public-sector job.” Add to that the required expertise in nutrition, budgets, knowledge of facilities and equipment, sanitation, communication, and marketing, all while being held to a higher standard for serving children. Explained DeChadenedes,“You’ve got to make this happen on a dollar, on aging infrastructure, and on the staff you have.” The shift from processed foods to raw commodities isn’t the only national trend that’s playing out on a local level. In 2010, the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act eliminated the traditional morning protein requirement and increased the auspicious “whole grain” serving. Beginning this July, the act will forbid foods high in sugar and fat from public school vending machines and stores.“Got Milk?” ads also plaster cafeteria

“I’m a different kind of director,” said Nancy Weiss. “I’m a good cook.” Weiss’s first stab at a reincarnated breakfast was the frittata. But the kids didn’t bite, and it was back to the drawing board. “It’s a business,” she said, and a big business at that, as a recent trip around a few of the district’s kitchens revealed. At around 10:30 a.m. at Santa Barbara High School, bright red bell peppers were roasted then pulverized in an alfredo sauce; chicken, pinto beans, and brown rice filled large buckets before mass burrito-wrapping occurred; and slices of turkey, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes were piled onto rolls. Altogether, the food services program distributes food to 22 locations, including Storyteller Children’s Center and Montecito Union School. “She gets it,” said Mark Alvarado, who works for the city’s Neighborhood & Outreach Services and has a daughter at Roosevelt Elementary School. “There’s a stereotype that school food is for poor kids, and it sucks,” he said. He’s seen the stigma firsthand and has even packed a

walls. Weiss has noticed that the boys always grab the green milk cartons and girls take the purple ones, and such seemingly minute details can have a significant impact on cost. Plus, kids tend to take two sips of milk and trash the rest, so some school sites now have milk dispensers to mitigate waste. Food waste does still pose a challenge for the district. Though hard data isn’t available to determine the amount of total food wasted, Weiss has noticed certain entrees like lasagna and sloppy joes end up in the trash more often, while orange chicken and pastas tend to be favorites. Other seemingly national “political maneuvers” have proved to be positive. Servings of fruits and vegetables have increased. “Ketchup is no longer a vegetable,”Weiss said with a smirk. Early in the Ronald Reagan presidency, the controversy circulated after the government relaxed regulations in order for school administrators to

cope with decreased federal subsidies. A similar issue made headlines in 2011, when Congress seemingly “declared pizza a vegetable” after it decided that one-eighth of a cup of tomato paste equated to a serving of vegetables. “Certainly not in my department,” Weiss said, adding that in any case, other USDA guidelines wouldn’t allow it.


Despite the newfangled operation and success, not everything has been a piece of cake, like the rollout of the federally funded Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC) program. After pushback from parents — most notably at Roosevelt, where the program was discontinued after winter break — the initiative is still being ironed out and will metamorphose in the near future. A similar debate occurred across the country and at the Los Angeles Unified School District, where the school board voted to uphold the BIC after frustrated parents and teachers complained. The idea is simple: Kids who eat breakfast do better in school. A free breakfast program based on family income has long existed in public schools, but the kids noticed that some students played outside while others ate in the cafeteria. BIC was created to tackle the problem. Provided by the USDA and distributed in a yellow cardboard box, the main item — pancakes, bean burrito, or a bagel — comes with fruit, string cheese, and milk. But some parents balked at the meals, arguing they were high in carbs and low in nutritional value and that instructional minutes were lost while kids ate. Others added the supposed stigma associated with eating in the cafeteria was nonexistent and worried some kids were double-dipping — eating at home and at school. But others praised the program because it ensured all kids ate breakfast, especially at schools with diverse populations like Roosevelt and Washington elementary schools. Moving forward, the program may offer higherquality foods, starting earlier and again later in the morning as a “second chance” for kids ■ hungry at 10 a.m. april 17, 2014

From the Mouths of Dogs

MOST DEFINITELY: Sometimes, even I am

amazed at how right I can be. A few weeks ago, I suggested S.B.’s City Council declare partial victory in the war on gang violence and walk away from the scorched-earth court battle required for City Hall’s proposed gang injunction to be implemented. It turns out I didn’t know the half of it. Three years ago, when Police Chief Cam Sanchez first proposed the injunction, he argued it would provide cops an additional crime-fighting tool to target the 30 “worst of the worst” gang-bangers in S.B., carefully selected after hours of painstaking — and very expensive — crime-record analysis. When the injunction finally goes to court on May 5, it turns out only seven of those 30 will still be of concern. The vast majority have since been put behind bars, thanks to traditional shoe-leather police work. A few have been deported. One was murdered in Mexico two months ago. And just last week, City Hall very quietly agreed to drop five of the alleged “worst of the worst” from the suit altogether. According to new City Attorney Ariel Calonne, “It was in the interest of justice.” It turns out that guys with monikers like “Lil Nightmare,”“Smurf,” and “Dopes,” had cleaned up their acts sufficiently — school, jobs, families, kids, no arrests — that their inclusion would undermine City Hall’s case in the eyes of Judge Colleen Sterne. Of the remaining seven, two are mothers. Next week, the S.B. City Council will hold a

hearing on the gang injunction thanks to councilmembers Gregg Hart and Cathy Murillo. Amazingly, it will be only the second time the public can weigh in on what’s become a highly charged matter. Even more astonishing, it will be the first time the councilmembers openly vote. They did so three years ago, but in “closed door” deliberations reserved for litigation and personnel matters with zero public input. A whole lot has changed since then. When the injunction was first proposed, the public was clamoring for something that looked like decisive action. Three non-gang members had been killed by gang members in very public spaces. Shortly before that, a 4th of July mêlée left one teen gang member dead and his brother, who allegedly helped instigate the fracas, behind bars for his murder. And who can forget the 15-year-old stabbed to death by a 14-year-old by Saks Fifth Avenue? As proposed, the injunction would prohibit the “worst of the worst” from associating with each other or any known gang members near public schools, public parks, or in any of the two gang safety zones, which encompassed pretty much the entire East- and Westsides, the injunction would create. Latino-rights activists and civil libertarians — though now engaged and enraged — were strikingly slow to respond. Initially, the most damning criticism came from law enforcement officials themselves, who privately muttered — off the record — they already had all the authority they needed. Most gang members, they

noted, had probation conditions prohibiting them from associating with known gang members. They didn’t need new laws, they scoffed, to roll up on gang members; they needed more enforcement of existing ones. For a host of reasons, gang activity on the South Coast has diminished greatly since then. In 2011, S.B. police reported 169 Type 1 (serious crime) gang incidents. Last year, the number had dropped to 52. In the first three months of 2014, there have been nine. In the first three months of 2011, there were 84. That’s a 90 percent drop. According to stats released by county probation, the number of juveniles on probation because of gang-related activity has plummeted dramatically, as well. In April 2010, there were 353; this April, the number was down to 181. In that same time period, violent juvenile crime dropped by 59 percent. Little wonder Los Prietos Boys Camp just shut down half of its operation. The punch line is that traditional law enforcement methods work. Thanks to computers and cell phones, it now takes cops, school officials, and probation officers 20 minutes to swap info on at-risk individuals, where in the past it would have taken two weeks. Likewise, the school district finally figured out that expelling and suspending problem students only served to fuel the gang fire. Better to keep them in the classroom than on the street. By adopting a new restorative approach, such disciplinary actions have been greatly reduced, and even challenging students are kept engaged. Early interven-

tion programs, initially funded 20 years ago by tobacco-settlement funds, may likewise be bearing fruit. And Chief Sanchez deserves serious props for opening a pseudo police substation at the Franklin Neighborhood Center right across from the Pennywise Market, reportedly ground zero for Eastside gangs. If he did the same thing at the Westside Boys & Girls Club by Bohnett Park, that would go a very long way to calming longstanding neighborhood fears about both the park and the club. I don’t know what it will cost to litigate the injunction, but it’s more than enough to create another pseudo substation by Bohnett Park. The political winds are changing, too. Santa Barbara’s Juvenile Justice/Delinquency Prevention Commission — whose members were appointed by Presiding Judge Arthur Garcia — just voted to oppose the gang injunction. With gang activity dropping, its members felt the injunction was not warranted. County Supervisor Salud Carbajal — who according to one wag “has the best nose in local politics”— has now come out against the injunction after initially supporting it. He argued limited funds would be spent on intervention and prevention programs rather than endless litigation. And whether effective or not, gang injunctions are ethnically polarizing. They just are. And that interferes with effective community policing. So why risk it? For councilmembers sitting on the fence, I’d advise dusting off your copy of The Art of War by Sun Tzu. “Lose the battle, win the war,” he wrote 2,500 years ago. That makes him more amazing than even me. — Nick Welsh

Just Enough Water


egarding last week’s Angry Poodle Barbecue [], the “just enough water” to flow into Hilton Creek for the trout is seven to eight acre-feet a day — every day. To put this amount in perspective, last Sunday the South Coast used 55 acre-feet of water. Over 10 percent of our water usage is going to 900 trout who have been artificially kept alive with this water. My wife and I use about 55 gallons a day. The 900 trout use 2.5 million gallons a day. Think about it.

Deltopia Debacle


he recent street party in Isla Vista once again turned into a riot. How could this not be predicted by the team led by Sheriff Brown? This is an event that happens every year, and it just seems to get worse. Why didn’t Sheriff Brown have adequate personnel in place for crowd control and to anticipate the “civil unrest”? The injuries to law enforcement and students may have been completely avoided. Sandra Brown is running for Sheriff against the current Sheriff Brown, and she has stated she will place a higher priority on Isla Vista. We need a sheriff who will give attention to all our neighborhoods and not be so focused on building a jail that results in him ignoring more vital issues in Santa Barbara County. It seems like voting in a new sheriff would be the best way to end the results of these spring parties. — Alan Eft, Orcutt


••• would like to propose a solution to recurring mêlées in Isla Vista. Those of us born after 1930 but before

1980 must step up. When parents intrude upon a child’s social gathering, the festive atmosphere immediately evaporates to be replaced with a still and wary watchfulness for as long as the parent remains in the area. Building upon this experience, I propose POOPS (Pitiful Odd Old People Serving) and the following deployments: For Halloween, as we POOPS shuffle and lurch through the revelers, the vacuum of our diminishing life force will suck up the youthful exuberance, thus reducing the collateral damage by a significant percentage. (Costumes/makeup for our squad will, unfortunately, be unnecessary.) As for Deltopia, I think that the sight of our cohort dressed in swimsuit attire, drifting through the streets, will immediately replace the festive atmosphere with one of despair and foreboding, and everyone will simply go home.

War Dollars


ur country has some critical needs — how to respond to the effects of climate change, repair our crumbling bridges and roadways, bridge the growing divide between rich and poor. I want to see more of my tax dollars going to these priorities rather than to the Pentagon. I hope my senators will work to make this happen in the coming year. They can start by eliminating the more than $100 billion of documented waste, fraud, and abuse found in the Pentagon’s budget yearly. We might disagree about the need to invest in the tools for war, but surely we can agree on the need to spend our tax dollars responsi— Riki Berlin, S.B. bly.

Santa Barbara County Residents: Santa Barbara County residents have been enjoying fresh, California-grown citrus fruit for generations. Unfortunately, an invasive insect called the Asian citrus psyllid was recently found in the area and is threatening local citrus – and we need your help to stop it.

Asian citrus psyllids are brown, aphid-like insects that feed at a 45-degree angle.

The Asian citrus psyllid is a tiny insect that feeds on the leaves and stems of citrus plants, and can transmit a deadly plant disease called Huanglongbing (HLB). There is no cure for HLB and infected trees will die. The best way to protect local citrus trees is to stop the Asian citrus psyllid. The Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention Program offers the following tips: • Inspect your trees regularly for the psyllid. Visit to see photos of the pest. • Report psyllid finds by calling the California Department of Food and Agriculture hotline – 800-491-1899.

Young Asian citrus psyllids are yellow and produce a white, waxy substance.

April, the Cruelest Month

WANDERING SOULS: Call it the Month of

the Lost Tourists. Days and days of forbidden U-turns, erroneous excursions down one-way streets. Cruise ship passengers trudging blocks up from the waterfront. Questions hurled from cars full of kids: “Where’s the beach?”“Where’s the zoo?” “Where’s the Mission?”“Where’s a bathroom?” But they’re generally pretty good-natured, leave money, and … from what I heard, love Santa Barbara and envy us locals.

T.S. WAS RIGHT: If April’s the cruelest month, according to poet T.S. Eliot, mixing “memory and desire,” it’s also when we have to shell out for taxes. Most of us, anyway. Lots of Americans seem to have no memory that April is tax time and have no desire to pay Uncle Sam. But how else could we pay for our wars? Speaking of which, one of our most famous tax refuzniks was legendary author Henry David Thoreau of Walden Pond fame. In 1846, the local tax collector, Sam Staples, demanded that he pay local poll taxes. When Thoreau refused, Staples tossed him in jail. Thoreau wouldn’t pay taxes because he objected to the Mexican-American War and slavery. After he spent a night behind bars, someone paid the taxes (against Thoreau’s wishes), and he was freed. Some latter-day tax dodgers are not so

principled. April’s the month when Major League Baseball gets under way, and we take delight in watching multimillionaires play a kid’s game. Our diamond heroes rake in the bucks while basking in the glow of fame and love in the cheers of lowly taxpayers in the bleachers. But some duck out of the IRS lineup when it comes time to step up to the plate and pay Uncle Sam. Darryl Strawberry served three months in prison in 1995 for failing to report $350,000 in income from autograph shows. Pete Rose, banned from baseball for betting on games, was sentenced to five months in prison in 1990 for filing false returns. He was nailed again in 2004 when he was hit with a nearly $1 million tax lien for unpaid taxes. He had a lifetime batting average of .303 but struck out with the IRS. Former Dodgers star Duke Snider and ex-Giants slugger Willie McCovey both pleaded guilty to tax evasion. Far lower on the food chain is a Santa Barbaran I’ll call John. To my knowledge, he has never paid income taxes, keeps a very low profile, gets paid under-the-table — when he works — and complains about the greedy government. Then there are those who argue long and hard (in their books they want you to buy and seminars they urge you attend) that it’s purely “voluntary” to pay federal taxes. And they quote

the IRS to “prove” it. When they can’t bedazzle you with brilliance, they baffle you with bullshit. True, the IRS uses the term “voluntary compliance” but only in the sense that it’s up to John and Jill Q. Citizen to fill out the forms and figure the taxes. Uncle Sam won’t do it for you. For those tempted to follow “advice” from tax scammers, trouble awaits.

SPIES OF WARSAW: Hooked on Alan

Furst’s novels about intrigue in pre–World War II Europe, I noticed how his books spell out Hitler’s strategy of threatening small countries into compliance, if not invading them. Russia’s Vlad Putin seems to be an ardent reader. Reality turns into fiction, which (presto!) becomes reality.

Beverly “Betty” Sanders  – 

Beverly Sanders (Betty to everyone who knew her) died peacefully on April , , two and half months shy of her th birthday. Betty was born in St. Louis, Missouri in . Her parents, Sara and Jack Cibull, were Jews who had immigrated to this country from Poland and the Ukraine. She grew up during the Great Depression, living with her parents and her brother Bob in Vincennes, Indiana; Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Tucumcari, New Mexico. As a girl, she was a talented tap dancer and singer, and as a teenager, she had a singing gig on a popular Sunday Tucumcari radio show. She also helped her family out by working regularly in her father’s shoe store. World War II broke out when Betty was a senior in high school. After graduating, she moved to Los Angeles to study dance but decided instead to take a clerical job at Douglas Aircraft, followed by a secretarial position at Warner Brothers Studios. Soon thereafter, she met her future husband, Maxwell Sanders (known as Macky), at a dance for young people that was sponsored by organizations in the Los Angeles Jewish community. Macky, the son of Frances and Leo Sanders of Santa Barbara, had enlisted in the Navy and was going to be shipped to the South Pacific in a matter of weeks. After a whirlwind courtship, they promised each other that they would write every day, and they proceeded to conduct a threeyear long-distance love affair. When Macky returned, they were married in the garden of his parents’ Santa Barbara Street home. Betty and Macky lived in Oxnard

for a time and then moved to Santa Barbara, where they raised their children, Trudy and Richard, and where they lived for the remainder of their nearly -year marriage. Betty was a devoted wife and mother as well as a hands-on grandmother. She was a fun-loving friend who was always up for a party. She was remarkably good-natured, had an irreverent sense of humor, and was almost never ruffled. She was uncommonly beautiful, but also genuinely modest. She appreciated stylish clothing—and especially fabulous shoes. She never lost her great singing voice and was known for her classy rendition of “Old Black Magic.” She had excellent card-sense and played gin rummy, bridge, pan, and mahjong with aplomb. She and Macky traveled extensively and enjoyed spending time in their homes in Palm Springs and Acapulco. She was a long-time active member of the Congregation B’nai B’rith Sisterhood as well as Hadassah, and she was a founding member of the Santa Barbara Jewish Federation’s Women’s Auxiliary. She was also on the Women’s Board of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, a member of the CALM Auxillary, and a supporter and patron of the Music Academy of the West. All in all, it can safely be said that Betty Sanders led a well-lived life. She is survived by her husband Macky; her brother Dr. Robert Cibull and his wife Jan; her daughter Trudy and her spouse Amy; her son Richard and his wife Rosemary; her grandchildren Ethan and his wife Hsingyi, Naomi and her husband Ron, Omri and his wife Dafna, Olivia and her husband Marc, Julian, and George; her great-grandchildren Lila, Ari, Levi, Maya, Rose, Shira, and Joshua; and many nieces and nephews. Betty’s family would like to thank her wonderful caregivers—Dolores Weaver, Ryan Hughes, Sally Salgado and Laura Manzano for their compassionate care for Betty while she lived at Maravilla Retirement Community. A celebration of Betty’s life was held this past Sunday at Congregation B’nai B’rith. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Santa Barbara Jewish Federation, Congregation B’nai B’rith, or the Music Academy of the West.

Mary Grace Canfield, veteran actress, mother, grandmother and friend, who was grateful for every day of life, died February , , in Santa

april 17, 2014

Barbara. She was born September , , in Rochester, New York. Mary Grace grew up in “the most beautiful house ever” on Lake Canandaigua in upstate N.Y. As a shy child, she read voraciously. Discovering plays, she knew by age nine she wanted to be an actress. She attended the renowned Hedgerow Theater in Pennsylvania, studying with Jasper Deeter for three years. She then moved to N.Y.C. acting on and off Broadway. There she met producer Charles Carey, who took her on as an apprentice at his summer stock theater in Surry, Maine, for six years. At the end of her first summer, The Bangor News had dubbed her as “Surry’s Favorite” at age ! During this time, she married Charles Carey and her first daughter, Phoebe, was born. Back in N.Y.C., she continued her stage career and her second daughter, Alison Carey, was born. After a divorce, and struggling at times to find work, life changed dramatically when David Swift, director/producer for Disney films, called and asked her to come to Hollywood to play “Angelica,” the upstairs maid, in the movie Pollyanna. When filming finished, she bravely moved to Hollywood with two little girls, a move that brought this talented actress a successful career in L.A. for the next  years. Although her résumé is long, she became most recognized for playing “Ralph Monroe,” the inept female carpenter on the series Green Acres, starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor. She was in over  episodes which ran from  – . In , tired of the city, she took a solo drive north with no particular destination. She found herself driving up San Ysidro Road towards beautiful mountains, passing smells of orange blossoms and then a sign on the side of the road: “For Sale by Owner.” She pulled into the driveway and bought a  CA craftsman for $,! There she lived happily for many years, involving herself in projects, community endeavors and politics. In the mid ‘s, her Yankee background beckoned. She had a long-held dream to spend her last years living in the rural area of Maine she loved, with the changing seasons. She lived her dream in Blue Hill when she bought an  Cape Cod house on a knoll with  acres. She was ecstatically happy once again. In , she married John Bischof and rediscovered her second passion – sailing. On both coasts, she made friends easily and always had creative projects: writing, volunteering, recording an oral history of the town and caring deeply about saving the planet from man-made destruction. She was a loving mother and extraordinary grandmother to her three grandsons. To them she was known as “Mimi,” and they were the loves of her life. She enriched each of their lives with many trips, music lessons, books, dinners and her time. As a result, each has turned out to be exceptional young men with talent and compassion and a deep love for their “Mimi.” MG returned to Santa Barbara in  to live with her daughter. She reunited with old friends and made many new ones. During the last year

of her life, she wrote a novel and had just completed it, when, sadly, she was diagnosed with cancer She impacted the lives of so many who loved being in her company. She was spunky, smart, independent and had a brilliant sense of humor, but could also be vulnerable. Tears have been shed, as it seemed too soon for her to go in spite of her age. She said that “at , life is still as precious as it was at . Inwardly, I still feel .” She will be loved forever! She is survived by her daughters, Phoebe Alexiades and Alison Carey, grandsons George Alexiades and his wife, Abby, of Montecito, Andre Reinero, Valentin Santana and her husband, John Bischof of Maine. A very special “thank you” to Jill Davis and Susan Jorgensen of The Friendship Center for making every Monday the happiest day of her week. All who knew and enjoyed Mary Grace are invited to a Celebration of Life on Saturday, April , at : P.M. at the Friendship Center in Montecito,  Eucalyptus Lane, across from All Saints by the Sea Church, near the bottom of San Ysidro Road.

Daniel William “Stoney” Stonecipher  – 

Born in Oakland, California to Maxine and William Stonecipher, the family relocated to Newark, Delaware, thereafter, where he attended Newark High School and eventually graduated from the University of Delaware. His early aspirations led him to pursue a life at sea and a short term in the Maritime Academy, but later found his true calling when he enlisted with the Air Force and subsequently the Air National Guard. He was hired with Trans World Airlines in , where he would eventually make Captain and retire after  years. Flying proved to be a liberating journey for a free-spirited individual like Dan, traveling and moving around the country making friends along the way. After stints living in Alabama, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Aspen and Antigua, he finally found his permanent home in Santa Barbara in . It was the perfect place to pursue the outdoor hobbies he enjoyed most while raising a family. It was here that he felt most at home with its ideal climate and wonderful people. Whether traveling or taking road trips to surf and ski with his sons, playing tennis or golf, dancing to bluegrass music, sailing the channel islands or motorcycle riding in the mountains, Dan loved to be on the move and enjoy the boundless outdoor life. In his years of retirement he remained active as a member of the American Red Cross’s disaster response team, picking up where his mother had left off in the Santa Barbara community. Those who knew him most will greatly miss his positive spirit, passion for life, and laid-back attitude. On March , , surrounded by family and friends, Dan took off on his final flight after succumbing to a terminal illness. He is survived by his two sons William and John Stonecipher, sister and brother-in-law Joyce and Richard Carnovale, nieces Cecily Conklin and Jennifer Marwill, and former wife Alison Stonecipher.

Dancing with Luis


BY D . J . PA L L A D I N O alf a lifetime ago in these parts, folk

dancing was all the rage. It was a fad that grew into a phenomenon that became a way of life that brought literally hundreds of ’60s and ’70s kids, hippies and hipsters alike, out of their dorms and ashrams and crash pads and parents’ homes to merrily dance complicated Balkan, Greek, and Israeli steps in the evenings at grammar school campuses and UCSB’s Old Gym, the platform at Oak Park, at Santa Barbara High during lunch, every night at a Greek taverna called The Plaka on Montecito Street, and, most visibly, in full bohemian rhapsody, on Sunday afternoons at Chase Palm Park. The thing was, you couldn’t miss them; there were longhaired, peasant-chic-dressed crowds, “double lines with lots of people standing behind them copying the steps,” said Susan Soria, who started dancing herself in the early 1970s and keeps the spirit alive today at the surviving Wednesday dance. And at the center of most of those interknit fancy-dancing circles was the tightly styled man who brought most of them into the flock in the first place: the late great Luis Goena. Charismatic, ramrod-postured, always dressed in a white, wide-brimmed hat and red scarf, the seemingly unstoppable Goena died from pneumonia complications after vocalcord surgery just one week before his 86th birthday last February 9. “The hardest thing is not having him here,” said Bruno Bardini, who has been dancing (stylishly) since 1970 and still makes it to the weekly Oak Park dance night despite recent knee surgery. Many echoed the emotion last Wednesday at the park, where Goena, who had led a fight to preserve the stage, had presided over a smaller yet still avid crowd, and where on Saturday at 6 p.m. his family and friends will mount a celebration of the man with the things he loved best: music, dance, and people.“He loved people, and he loved showing people how to dance,” said Joanne Hardarson, who began dancing in high school in the 1960s, remembering when it cost a quarter and everybody tried to sneak in.“Even in his last months when he could barely walk, he would jump up and help somebody learn a step,” she said. Goena was born in Carpinteria. His fam-

ily was Basque, and he married into the Old California Ayala family, who date back to Santa Barbara’s Presidio past and once held chunks of land that would later house the likes of Oprah. Goena grew up in a house where music and dance were deeply appreciated, though he didn’t get bitten by Balkan-mania until attending UCSB in the 1950s, where a small group of Internationalists gathered each week to Bulgarian pravos and Greek syrtos. Goena’s life timing was good: He worked for the polo fields and managed to buy up enough rental properties to retire early and also acquire the compound behind the mission, where he raised eight children and some goats. At downtown folk nights, “His teaching was so precise,” said Soria, “but he never made you feel bad if you screwed up.” His own style, decidedly more villager than performer, was tight and precise, and he had an almost mathematical way of breaking down complex steps done to ragged rhythms so complex they’d make Dave Brubeck scratch his head. Goena more or less took over city rec folk dance just as a big generation of free spirits arrived, ready for bagpipe and flute music (perhaps conditioned by the Beatles). He created Palm Park Sundays, which became a hippie ritual, dancing between the ocean and curious tourists from afternoon ’til dusk. Whole families joined in. But Sunday dancing ended in the early 1980s, though folk dancing lived on, and Goena always turned up. “He was my friend, and he was my boss,” said Soria, who helped Luis in his later life with properties and goats, dismissing claims he could be a little distant. “Luis was a fabulous teacher. He was always encouraging. He made a big difference in people’s lives. A lot of people came to me and said they didn’t do drugs because they had folk dancing.” “Being inclusive was a hallmark of folk dancing in Santa Barbara,” said Leslie Griffin. “And that was the best thing about folk dancing; it’s so social,” she added. It was something you didn’t need a partner for but could still have you socializing with very kindred spirits, a party grown smaller, at least by one now.“I’m going to miss Luis every day of my life,” said Griffin. “If he hadn’t lived such a full life, I would be sad.” ■

AN ALBUM, MIDDLE AGE, AND CRAFT ALE Buellton the Band Teams with Telegraph Brewing to Release Album on Beer Bottle


by Matt Kettmann

photos by Paul Wellman

t was during our second noontime meeting at Dutch Garden Restaurant in late January when John Nygren divulged the super-duper-secret secret that he’d been hinting at for the past week, since our last lunch of sausage and German beer in the low-ceilinged hangout on upper State Street. “So here’s the deal,” he said, leaning in to me, lowering his voice, looking over our shoulders.“We’re releasing the album on a bottle of beer.” I sat back, took a quick swig of my cloudy ale, and digested what immediately sounded to me like the best idea in the world, at least in the culturally complementary worlds of music and beer. “Wow, that is pretty cool,” I said, now looking over my shoulders, having already spotted some music fans I know in the restaurant.“Why hasn’t anyone else done that before?” The handful of other people who knew the secret at that time asked exactly the same question, including Brian Thompson, the owner of Telegraph Brewing Company on Salsipuedes Street, where the anointed ale was being made (and where I’d first met Nygren by complete coincidence a few weeks earlier). They feared possible hang-ups with the federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), a notoriously by-thebook agency that must approve all wine, beer, and liquor labels, thereby controlling what sort of ideas can happen, and which cannot. In March, though, the TTB signed off on the label, meaning that Nygren’s band Buellton — which first formed in Santa Barbara in the late 1990s and made some serious waves in the West Coast indie rock scene but then faded into obscurity until


CITY UNCONNECTED: Although today John Nygren (far right) does live in Los Olivos, he christened the band Buellton (pictured in Jack Mendenhall’s Museum of Gasoline Pumps & Petroliana) long before calling the Santa Ynez Valley home, simply because he saw it on a street sign and thought it sounded cool. Drummer Eric Herzog (laughing) approved, so the name stuck, and now the touring band also features winemaker Graham Palmer (second from right) and Foundation Press owner Curt Crawshaw. now — will be releasing their nearly six-years-in-the-making sophomore album, Silent Partner, as a digital download on a bottle of Telegraph’s saison-style ale.“I was enthusiastic from the moment we discussed it,” said Thompson. “Beer and music go together in every way imaginable.” The pairing of music with another product is uncommon but not completely novel: In April 2011, the Flaming Lips released a five-song EP called Gummy Song Skull for $150 inside a collectible gummy skull; in 2012, Taylor Swift’s RED album was released alongside a themed pair of red Keds shoes. And since there was a small songs-via-bottle release available only in Portland two years ago, Buellton can’t quite claim to have invented the first music-meets-beers project ever. But, with a coast-to-coast rollout planned in the numerous markets where Telegraph already exists, Silent Partner marks the first full-length, nationally distributed version of album-on-ale model. And the ensuing buzz is expected to trigger a wave of copycats, from small bands with craft brewers to big names with corporate brands. Beyond that, Nygren and his Buellton cohorts — all of whom are approaching middle age, most with wives, kids, and full-time day jobs — may be cracking a new code on how parttime musicians unable to embark on a lengthy concert tours can still succeed without the support of a record label. Via Telegraph’s distribution network (which includes California, New York, Illinois, Arizona, and Washington state), and the publicity that will come from both the drink and music press, Buellton

could attract enough national attention to fuel another album or two, if not a sustainable career. Certainly, the targeted audience is narrower than what a major label offers, but it’s likely to be a dedicated one, since craft brew fanaticism is only surging in popularity. That’s just part of what’s arguably the greatest modern trend in American culture: people of all sorts increasingly digging products that are personal, thoughtful, hand-crafted, and made in small, unique batches — which is exactly the kind of album that Silent Partner is, the result of a half-decade of ups and downs for many of the players, and of starts and stops that often seemed like the end. In that way, the pairing works on many levels. Nygren credits the Santa Barbara–raised, Los Angeles– residing musician Marko DeSantis, of the band Sugarcult, for planting the seed during a meeting last year.“I was almost saying it to be facetious,” recalled DeSantis, who teaches musicbusiness classes at Musicians Institute in Hollywood and Citrus College in Glendora. Excited that his idea took root, DeSantis holds it up as a prime example of how music-industry creativity doesn’t stop at clever songs anymore; it extends into marketing, as well. “The more you approach middle age and the more boutique your music is, the more your music becomes equivalent to craft beer — it’s about quality over quantity,” said DeSantis last week, phoning in as he drove through L.A.“It’s not all about the music. It’s about the cultural experience. The music is the centerpiece, but the way the music is delivered has become so much a part of the experience. And what better way to experience music than by opening a bottle of beer, listening while you drink it, and then having a bottle as a memento to hold onto?”


Buellton emerged out of the post-punk, progrock indie scene that ruled Santa Barbara in the mid- to late-1990s. Originally from Orange County, Nygren, who

HOMECOMING NIGHT: For only their second live show in more than a decade, Buellton played the Mercury Lounge in Goleta on March , which Nygren said felt “like a homecoming party.” first came to Santa Barbara to study philosophy at Westmont in the early 1990s, sang and played guitar in a band called Brown, and their album eventually found its way to the ears of Eric Herzog, thanks to mutual friend Tad “Tbone” Wagner. A third-generation local who’d been playing drums in bars since before he was 21, Zog, as he’s known, was in a band called Wasted Tape with childhood friend John Askew and Bruce Winter, who’d just returned from years of touring with Toad the Wet Sprocket. Brown and Wasted Tape disintegrated at about the same time, so Zog called up Nygren on his mom’s landline and invited him to jam. By 1999, Nygren had moved to town and started working with Zog and Tbone at the Wine Cask’s old warehouse on Haley Street, where they were allowed to turn an unused room into a small recording studio. They named the makeshift space “Buonapasta,” an ode to a nearby pasta-making factory. Nygren and Zog started writing songs together. Tbone tackled guitar and began exploring a nascent interest in production. “He starts pushing some buttons, and next thing we knew, we needed some lead parts,” said Nygren. “That’s how the nucleus happened.” From the remnants of Brown, in came bassist Cliff Hayes and multi-instrumentalist Andrew “JKO” Giacumakis. Still a relative Santa Barbara newbie, Nygren spotted the city named Buellton on a street sign in Goleta, thought it sounded “cool,” and the group was christened, in the grand tradition of naming bands after fairly meaningless things. They upped the ante by calling the album Avenue of the Flags (a nod to Buellton’s main drag) but still thought the connection more of a curiosity, having ambitiously thought that their reach would go far beyond the Central Coast, leaving the origins of both band name and album a mystery. (This was pre-pervasive Internet.) In 2001, Buellton released Avenue of the Flags on John Askew’s Portland-based FILMguerrero label, and quickly rave reviews from national magazines and websites started pouring in. (The record even received four stars from, which was rather selective in even mentioning bands.) Buellton toured California and the Pacific Northwest a couple of times, opening for Death Cab for Cutie, Rilo Kiley, and My Morning Jacket (although the latter had yet to achieve their

current fame). But Nygren was already wondering whether the road life was for him. “Gee,” he recalled thinking, way before wives and kids and full-time jobs came on their scene,“is this how I want to spend my time, in a van with some smelly dudes?” From 2002-2003, Buellton tried to make a second record, but Nygren had fallen in love with an art teacher from Midland School near Los Olivos named Faith Thornton.“I was always the edge-of-the-bed, sulkingabout-relationships songwriter,” he explained. “I found myself happy, which was kind of bizarre, and I was wanting to do other things besides hole up in my bedroom and make music.” The well ran dry, and Nygren had no inclination to fill it up. By 2004, Buellton was officially on hiatus, but the other members kept at it: Winter went into composing in Los Angeles, Tbone kept producing, and Zog and JKO went on to form the metal band Moab, which is about to go on tour with Fu Manchu. Meanwhile, Nygren started working at SB Mailworks, which he now co-owns, and married Faith. Eventually the pair moved to Midland School, where two things happened to set Buellton back on track: One, a faculty member gave Nygren an old piano that had been at the school for decades, and two, as copies of Avenue of the Flags made their rounds with the students, Nygren kept hearing positive feedback.“They razzed me,” he said of the kids.“I got the bug again.” By 2008, most of the band was back together and recording at Buonapasta. That next year, with about half the album done, Haley Ashbury Studios moved in right next door, and the overflowing noise of practicing bands made laying down tracks difficult. Much more catastrophic, though, Faith was diagnosed with breast cancer that required both chemo and radiation. Buellton was again on indefinite hiatus, and this time they pulled the plug on Buonapasta, too.“It’s just bizarre driving past that place,” said Zog, who also endured a major back injury amid it all.“So much creativity went on in that little alley.” With Faith’s treatment going as perfectly as possible, Buellton got back to recording in 2010. By 2011, the band was ready to mix album number two but wound up spending lots of time and money at various studios, from John Askew’s Scenic Burrows in Portland to Barak Moffitt’s SuperMaster Destructo in Venice Beach. Their democratic approach to songwriting was causing major delays.“It’s a very collaborative process, to its demise at times, but that’s just how it is,” said Nygren.“I

wouldn’t encourage anybody to do it this way, but that’s just the way we do it.” They brought the tracks back to Santa Barbara, wondering what to do, when, out of the blue, Winter sent Nygren a message on Facebook saying that he was back in town, done with composing, and ready to work with a band again. Nygren loved his engineering work on Avenue of the Flags, and Winter loved that album. “I’ve mixed a lot of records, but it’s one of the few that I’ve done that I kept listening to,” he recalled. Feeling “fucking lucky to have a great record to work on” after 11 years of composing, Winter spent most of 2012 mixing Silent Partner at Craig Costigan’s Garage Mahal studio in Goleta.


By the time Nygren and Zog met with DeSantis in 2013, both Tbone (who is art director at the music-web company Oniracom) and JKO (who’s got kids and Moab to worry about) tapped out of touring, so Buellton picked up guitarist Curt Crawshaw (owner of Goleta screen-printing company Foundation Press) and bassist Graham Palmer (who plays with the Mad Caddies and makes wine under the Sforzando label). They had everything a band needs — booze, T-shirts, therapy (Zog became a school psychologist after his back injury), and publicity (via Nygren’s mail company). But DeSantis knew they needed a hook. “You don’t have youth; you don’t have buzz that you’re the next big thing,” DeSantis told them, “but you do have documentable evidence that you were around back in the day, and the style of music you play has, in those intervening years, turned out to be the zeitgeist. But how do you make people give a fuck? Make a CD? I’m already half-asleep. Put it online for free? I’m fucking snoring.” Thinking out loud, DeSantis suggested releasing the album on a bottle of wine. Silence hit the table. Nygren chewed on the idea, eventually accepting that it was okay to tie his creative baby to a sales gimmick, and realized that a bottle of craft beer made the most sense, price-wise. And since the only labels interested in the album required extensive touring, the album-on-ale release solved another problem. “I saw the beer idea as a way to circumvent that,” said Nygren,“to get the music out there and get it noticed without having to spend months on the road.” Equally excited about the collaboration, Telegraph’s Thompson was surprised that Bud Light hadn’t yet teamed with Clint Black

So he set about making a saison-style ale — something “accessible yet interesting, like Buellton’s music”— and getting the label approved.“You can’t put it on the turntable and listen to it, but we’re really trying to make it as much of an album as a bottle of beer can be,” said Thompson. “I do think this could unleash a wave. I could easily see breweries and bands teaming up to promote both. There are so many cross-promotional opportunities here.” In retrospect, the existing relationship between Nygren and Thompson, who first met in 2007, is really what paved the way. “The fact that Brian and I had our relationship before this happened was 50 percent of the battle,” said Nygren.“Otherwise, so many stars have to line up.”


Buellton’s first live show in more than a decade was on March 29 in Lompoc, followed by a show the next night at the Mercury Lounge in Goleta, which Nygren said “felt like a homecoming party.” They play again on Thursday, April 17, at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, with Glen Phillips and The Blues and Greys. The 750ml bottle of music and beer (which features the track listing, as well as a digital download code atop the cork) comes out the first week of May, a few weeks before the album is available on iTunes as a digital download. A couple of weeks ago, Nygren finally got to taste the beer, a 7.4 percent light but flavorful ale that will retail for about $15. A discerning drinker, Nygren reports, “It’s rad. I’m super stoked.” And that’s critical to the success, of course.“The project could go sour if the music is bad or the beer is bad,” said Nygren, “but if they’re both pretty competent, people should take notice.”

You Black-throated gray warbler may have spied one overhead this very day — and if you did, the Santa Barbara Audubon Society (SBAS) wants to know about it. For the second year, the SBAS is having a Birdathon, calling upon the community to help count the feathered creatures in our area from April 26 - May 4. Here’s how it works: Like its cousin the walkathon, the Birdathon involves volunteers soliciting donations from family and friends for birds tallied. You can bird solo or form a team; you can do your counting from a park, open space, hiking trail, and/or backyard. You can also participate in any — or all — of the seven field trips offered (fees required) to Birdathoners, which include excursions to Figueroa Mountain, Matilija Creek, Las Cruzitas Ranch, and Lake Los Carneros. Since its formation more than half a century ago, the Audubon Society has pursued its mission “to conserve and restore the earth’s natural ecosystems” and “to connect people with birds.” The money raised from the Birdathon will be used to defray the cost of SBAS — MD educational programs.

Choking Hazards

Watching Out for Your Pets


e all love our pets and enjoy giving them toys and goodies for chewing. Most of the time, there is little risk to offering these entertaining objects, but sometimes our best intentions can backfire. Sadly, veterinary professionals often see emergencies in which pets are rushed in due to choking on toys or treats. Sometimes the obstruction can be successfully removed and the pet’s airway restored; other times it’s too late to save a pet by the time they arrive at the hospital. It is important for every pet owner to know the risks to prevent choking hazards in the first place:

Animal Bones: Chicken and lamb bones splinter and can penetrate the back of the throat, the esophagus, or gastrointestinal tract, creating holes that leak fluids and cause infection. Larger, harder bones can slip backward in a dog’s mouth and obstruct the airway or become lodged in the dog’s esophagus or anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. They can also fracture teeth, causing the animal a lot of pain and creating the need for expensive dental procedures. Toy Size Matters: Some toys are made for small dogs or cats; these toys can easily cause choking in a medium- or large-breed dog. If you have both a large dog and small dog, choose only larger dog toys for both. Racket balls and the like become slimy from a dog’s saliva and can easily slip into the back of the throat. Chew Toys Can Pose a Threat: Rawhides and cow hooves are highly desirable chew toys, but there are a couple of issues of which to be aware. Some dogs will chew the knotted ends off the rawhides, which can quickly become lifethreatening airway obstructions. Cow hooves can break into slippery pieces — just the right size for getting stuck in the airway or esophagus.


Discovering Animals The Zoo’s Educational Facility Opens


baby giant anteater isn’t the only news the Santa Barbara Zoo had to announce this spring. At the end of March, the zoo unveiled its Discovery Pavilion, a grand 9,500-square-foot structure comprising classroom space, an exhibition gallery, a new kitchen in which the animals’ food is prepared, and office and meeting rooms for staff. The idea for an educational space was bandied about as early as 1982, but it wasn’t until the late ’90s that it was put into motion. “In 1999, we hired [architects], and they started the design process,” said Rich Block, the zoo’s chief executive officer. But there were “bunches of hiccups and starts and stops,” which prolonged the process nearly 15 years. The new venue anchors the zoo’s entrance promenade and cost $7.5 million — all the money came from the community — to complete. “There was a building built shortly after Lillian Child’s death,” Block said, giving some history of the chosen site. “It was built by volunteers from the fire and police departments for the hobos that used to live here. It was a shower building. Over the years, it morphed into a building that was used by the zoo for multiple purposes. In its last life, it was the backside of the capybara exhibit,” he said. (The capybaras have a brand-new area on the other side of the zoo by the anteaters.) The highlight of the pavilion is the 2,300-square-foot area that can be used for classroom space. “I cannot emphasize enough that the audience we have wanted to reach that we haven’t been able to connect to is our adults,” Block said. “We have all these opportunities throughout the year to do special, spur-of-the-moment [educational events], and we’ve never been able to take advantage the hem because be didn have the space.” For example, in 2012, of them we didn’t

Danger for Felines: Cats are less likely to choke on toys, but they are known for chewing on strings and ribbons, which can pose a hazard. Because of their raspy tongues, the strings get caught around the base of their tongues while the rest of the string passes down the gastrointestinal tract and act like a saw on the delicate tissue. Cats can also chew on plant material that can travel above the soft palate and cause choking and gagging. In addition to preventing possible choking hazards, make sure you know the location of the closest veterinary hospital to your home, dog park, beach, walking locale, etc. Be sure to carry phone numbers and addresses of both day and after-hours emergency hospitals. — Dr. Andrea Wells

Pet Health

Pet Trusts

Putting Your Animal in Your Will


ny person with a beloved pet will tell you that they are an integral part of the family unit. As such, many people consider how their animal will be taken care of if they are no longer able or they themselves pass away. One way to secure the future of your pet is by setting up a pet trust. This is the most complex — there is a tremendous amount of decisions you need to make — and expensive method, but it allows you to have the most flexibility in terms of who will care for your pet and how they will care for your pet.

Foremost, you need to select a trustee who will manage the assets of the pet trust and who may also be your pet’s caregiver. You’ll need to consider how and if this person will be compensated and who will succeed them in the event that they are unable to continue as trustee/caregiver of your pet. The second major consideration is how much money you should distribute to this trust: This involves considering the age and longevity of your pet, their current and future veterinary expenses, and their food and shelter costs. You also need to consider how you would like your pet cared for and any directions that should be given to your pet’s caregiver for their grooming, activity, and basic well-being. Because every animal has a unique personality and guidelines for their care, creating a pet trust is a very customized process and, therefore, can be an expensive undertaking. Ultimately, you need to know that there are a number of options available for the care of your family pet, ranging from simple and inexpensive to complex and costly. There is no right or wrong decision, just the one that is right for you and your pet. — Brooke Cleary McDermott

BOSTON STRONG A Year After the Bombing, Santa Barbara Marathoners Head Back to Beantown by John Zant



he aftershocks of the bombs that exploded near the finish line a year ago will never completely fade away, but the theme of “Boston Strong” will be paramount on Monday, April 21, when 36,000 runners take to the streets in the 118th Boston

Marathon. Forty-three runners from the Santa Barbara area have entered the historic race, including many who had finished or were still on the course when tragedy struck on April 15, 2013. The first bomb went off at 2:50 p.m., with the race clock reading 4:09:43. The concussion knocked an elderly marathoner off his feet just yards from the finish line. A photographer captured him lying on Boylston Street, an image that made the cover of Sports Illustrated. “I recognized him on the television,” said John Brennand, the godfather of marathoning in Santa Barbara.“Bill Iffrig from Washington. We ran in the same age group [both are in their late seventies]. He’s tough.” Brennand, who ran Boston 11 times, retired from marathons almost 20 years ago but continues to run shorter races. As dramatic as Iffrig’s spill was, he was a lucky one. He was able to get up and stagger to the finish line, although he sustained injury to his left eardrum. The real damage of the two explosions — a second bomb went off moments later farther down the block — was inflicted on the spectators. Three were killed and more than 260 injured, many of them losing limbs. Gary and Doris Clancy of Santa Barbara shudder to think how close they came to being in harm’s way. “I was right on pace to finish in 4:08, but then I slowed down,” said Gary, 69, running his sixth Boston Marathon.“I was about 800 yards from the finish line when the bombs went off. The police stopped us. There were 5,000 of us who didn’t get to finish.” Doris, his wife, was waiting in a family reunion area 100 yards beyond the finish line. “I walked past the crowd at the finish and thought, ‘Maybe I’ll stay here to watch Gary come in,’ ” she said. “But something told me to keep going to the family area. I felt the first bomb. It was like a whoosh. I looked up and saw smoke. Then there were sirens and police telling us to leave the area.” Their cell phones were not working, and Doris did not know of Gary’s fate until she made her way to their hotel an hour-and-a-half later and found him there.“We collapsed in each other’s arms,” she said. The Clancys cannot understand the evil intent behind the bombings. “Why?” Doris said.“Why pick on a happy event with families and children? It’s never been answered.” The explosions occurred when the flow of runners was at a peak. “The Red Sox game had just gotten out, and there were a lot of spectators,” Gary said. “The devices were designed to maim and cause injuries.” They could not leave the hotel that Monday night. They had wine and food in the lounge. They commiserated with a fireman from Seattle. “He’d run his first Boston and said,‘How can I celebrate now?’” Doris said. Their waiter was seething. “He took it personally,” Gary said. “‘This is my town,’ he kept going on and on. ‘I’m gonna find them.’ ” Gary Clancy knew then that Boston would come back strong. “I went to the hotel’s front desk and made a reservation for this year’s marathon,” he said. He’s confident he’ll be able to run safely down that last stretch of Boylston Street on Monday.

(above) BOSTON BOUND: These Santa Barbara runners gathered early last Saturday morning for one of their last workouts before they head east to undertake Monday’s 118th Boston Marathon: (from left) Ramiro “Curly” Guillen, Craig Prater, Jill Zachary, Katie Vining, Sandy Roberts, Debbie Kovanda, Gary Clancy, Liz Mikkelson, Jana McKee, Maggie Mason, Jamie Allison, Heidi Heitkamp, and Laurel Mehler. (left) REMINDER: Whenever he runs, Ramiro “Curly” Guillen wears this wristband depicting the date of last year’s fateful Boston Marathon.

Debbie Kovanda ran the 2013 race in just under four hours.“I knew Gary [Clancy] was behind me, and I thought about staying around the finish line,” she said.“Then I thought I’d better not.” She had proceeded to the recovery area when she heard “what sounded like a cannon going off, then another boom. Was that supposed to happen? A woman from Boston said, ‘No, that’s not supposed to happen. Follow me.’ We moved out of there like zombies. People were crying. I didn’t know what happened until we got back to our hotel.” Kovanda, 58, is a Santa Barbara tax accountant. “I thought it would be appropriate to tax myself on April 15,” she said.“I didn’t want to go back this year. Then I found out it’s after the tax season. Maybe that’s another sign. I’m a little nervous, but I’m doing it. I want to break four hours again.” Shortly after 6 a.m. last Saturday, Kovanda showed up for the workout of the Santa Barbara Running and Racing Team, coached by Rusty Snow and Mike Swan. A dozen of them were training for the Boston Marathon. They’ll be used to rising early for the 8:50 a.m. (EST) start of Monday’s race in the town of Hopkinton. Ramiro “Curly” Guillen will be starting near the front of the pack. The 31-year-old Goleta native is on his way to becoming an elite marathoner. He won his first 26.2-mile race, the 2012 Santa Rosa Marathon, in 2:40:26. That qualified him for Boston last year.“If you’re going to be doing marathons, the one you have to do is Boston,” Guillen said. “It’s the greatest marathon in the world. I want to see how I measure up against history.” He improved his time to 2:35:11 while taking in the sights and sounds on the road to Boston. “My favorite part is the

Wellesley College section,” he said.“It’s an all-girls college. They’re blowing kisses at the runners.” After finishing in the top 140, he took a train to his hotel 10 miles north of downtown and was asleep when the bombings took place. “This year it’s about redemption,” Guillen said. It’s also about his continuing to run faster. He did the Chicago Marathon last October in 2:27:14.“My goal in Boston is 2:22 to 2:24,” he said. Eventually he wants to go under 2:18 to qualify for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials. Guillen ran track at Dos Pueblos High, SBCC, and UCSB. His college career petered out, and when he got a job as a TSA agent at the airport and started a family, he gave up running entirely.“I kept complaining about the weight I was gaining and kept saying I would run tomorrow,” he said. His wife, Rosemary, had heard enough of it in the fall of 2011. “She pushed me out the door. I huffed and puffed for two miles. I almost fainted.” He rededicated himself to the sport. Terry Howell, who had coached him at SBCC, agreed to train him at odd hours (besides his TSA job, Guillen does gigs as a deejay). His weight dropped from 182 to 130 pounds. He will run Boston in a Santa Barbara Running Company uniform with a blueand-gold logo.“UCSB colors,” Guillen said.“That’s special to me. I only raced in a UCSB uniform one season, and I felt like I let people down when I quit.” For Guillen, for the thousands of others who will run and the million who will cheer them on, this Boston Marathon will be a celebration of perseverance.

Big-City-Style Gourmet Food Court and Market May Change American Riviera Dining Forever


by Matt Kettmann

lready the most anticipated gourmet food development in Santa Barbara history, the Santa Barbara Public Market, which opened this week after nearly six years of planning and two years of construction, may one day go down as the singular most game-changing moment for the dining scene of our American Riviera. If all goes as hoped — and that will remain a big “if” for at least a couple of years, as the city tests the exciting foodie-court-meets-all-you-need-grocery-store concept’s staying power — the Public Market will play a leading role in changing Santa Barbara from a great place to visit with a nice food scene into a nice place to visit but a great place to eat.

“Santa Barbara is a city that has a very rich tradition of agriculture, farming, and wine and is really becoming known for all of these great artisan producers,” explained Marge Cafarelli last week, two days before Saturday’s invite-only soft opening. “We wanted to do a full grocery experience that represented this time.” As she took a quick lap around the 15,200-squarefoot space, which is a collection of small individual businesses, from pasta makers and bread bakers to seafood slingers, boutique butchers, and even a wine-and-beer bar, Cafarelli explained,“What Eataly [in Santa Barbara Public Market New York City] is to Italian, this place is located at the corner of Chawill be to Santa Barbara’s regional fare. pala and West Victoria streets We’re gonna have everything.” That and is open every day 7 a.m.10:30 p.m. See sbpublic includes, via the Foragers Pantry, the est tenant at 2,200 square feet, such household needs as toilet paper and toothpaste. Cafarelli, who purchased the old Vons grocery story building in 2008 and broke ground in June 2012 on the entire Alma del Pueblo development — which includes 37 luxury condos and a few other retail shops that are yet to open, including, she said, Full of Life Flatbread — is modeling the Public Market part of the project on San OIL JOY: Il Fustino’s Aaron Richardson peddles high-quality Francisco’s Ferry Building and Pike Place Market in Seattle. olive oil. The result, as seen on Sunday evening, is a heady buzz of aromas, options, and energy, from the head-down noodle slurpers at Empty Bowls to the ice cream lickers at Rori’s Artisanal Creamery. There are oysters at Santa Monica Seafood; pork lard, skinned rabbits, and hamburgers at Belcampo Meats; and fresh loaves at Crazy Good Bread Company, among the 15 different purveyors now open for business. But, opening excitement aside, will our fairly small town of Santa Barbara be able to sustain such an enterprise through the slow weekdays of winter? Or, alternately, will the Public Market compete too strongly against existing restaurants and markets, destabilizing the recent years of steady foodie-biz growth? BREW BUDDY: Wine + Beer manager Betty Dunbar pours NOODLES & BREAD & PRODUCE, OH MY! Now serving among Cafarelli, who splits her time between here and San Francisco, is a cold draft ale. the 15 vendors housed inside of the Santa Barbara Public confident that her dream will be a benefit for Market are Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar (co-owner Jerry all, providing a slightly more uptown anchor Lee, top, with a bowl of northern Thai curry noodles), the Crazy to the waterfront epicurean explosion of the Good Bread Co.

Jung considered The Red Book his most important work, yet it lay unseen in a bank vault for decades. Then, in 2009, a complete facsimile and translation was published. It is an astonishing example of calligraphy and art on a par with The Book of Kells and the illuminated manuscripts of William Blake.

When Jung embarked on an extended period of self-exploration, The Red Book was at the heart of it. It is an illuminated volume that he created between 1914 and 1930 where he developed his theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process

What’s the animating spark that begins a poem for you? In my case, I think it’s usually a little bit of wonderment or curiosity about something. Maybe I could cite a poem of mine: “I Chop Some Parsley While Listening to Art Blakey’s Version of ‘Three Blind Mice.’” In fact, I was chopping parsley for dinner, that song was on, and I was in one of those good moods where my mind was drifting. I started thinking about the three blind mice and how they came to be blind. As soon as I knew I could take this in a silly direction, I stopped chopping parsley and started writing a poem. I followed my curiosity: Was their blindness congenital? Was it an explosion that caused them all to go blind? Or were they separately blinded and somehow found each other? I realized there was some momentum to the thing, but I didn’t know where it was going or where it would end up. So that’s an example of an animating spark. What do you find you’re often doing when a poem comes to you? I came across an article in the newspaper one morning that announced what happened today in history, and it said “Cheerios was invented 70 years ago


e’s a 73-year-old university professor whose poems carry a wry sense of humor and a widespread appeal. She’s a 53-year-old rocker with a shock of long blond hair and a crop of smart, lyrical songs. This Thursday, April 17, Billy Collins and Aimee Mann will appear together onstage at UCSB’s Campbell Hall to offer up their distinct yet complementary forms of wordplay. In advance of their Santa Barbara appearance, Collins spoke to us from his home in New York about the animating spark for his poems, the writing process, and the relationship between the words on the page and poetry as a spoken form. For tickets to his performance with Mann, which takes place at 8 p.m., call 893-3535 or visit





WORDS WITH FRIENDS: Poet Billy Collins will share a stage with songstress Aimee Mann to deliver a night of spoken and sung words on April 17.

today,” which was how old I was when I read the article, so I realized I was a few months older than Cheerios, and that was enough to write a poem about mortality. What’s the relationship between the words on the page and the words as they sound being read aloud? I think they’re inseparable; I don’t think there’s any such thing as silent writing. As I’m writing words, I’m hearing them. I think the mind is a little auditorium

where even if you’re reading or writing in silence, you’re hearing the words. People who move their lips when they read give physical proof of that. So when I feel a poem is done, I do not leap up from the desk or get up on the roof and declaim it out loud. I would confidently take that poem that has never been said out loud into any auditorium and read it, because I already know how it sounds. — Elizabeth Schwyzer

BUELLTON SILENT PARTNER It doesn’t get much more homegrown than Buellton. The Santa Barbara band named after a Santa Ynez suburb made a strong and sparkly debut way back in 2001 with their equally localized Avenue of the Flags LP. Now, 13 years and a whole lot of “life stuff ” later, the S.B. boys are back. For Silent Partner, they’ve teamed up with the fancy beer gurus at Telegraph Brewing Company for a release model that’s both thirst quenching and subtly genius. (See more about that on p. 25.) But this marketing trick is only a small part of what makes Silent



Partner a solid investment. Over the course of the album’s 13 tracks, Buellton successfully resurrects the best parts of indie rock’s simpler times, channeling the big, melodic guitar riffs that put bands like Pavement and Yo La Tengo on the map. Like its predecessor, Silent Partner is marked by delicately wrought and simply orchestrated sad-core (“Mirror,” “Tyranny”), but it’s the boisterous moments that make for some of the record’s brightest highlights. In particular, “N.O.D.” is a sunny pop jam driven by frontman John Nygren’s oh-so–Stephen

Malkmus speak-sing. It’s joyful, catchy, and it calls to mind Slanted and Enchanted in the best way possible. So, now that Silent Partner is finally here, let us hope we’ll be seeing more of Buellton, around town and beyond. — Aly Comingore

In the last decade decade, Los Angeles has become the cre creative ative t epicenter for a new kind of immersive cabaret experience, and in the last five years, this new aesthetic has taken off worldwide. Next Tuesday-Wednesday, April 22-23, one of the leading groups in this post-cirque, post-neo-burlesque movement, Zen Arts, will be teaming up with Kerrilee Kaski and Jen Smithwick, two talented artists from Santa Barbara, to create something called When the Lights Go Out at Carr Vineyards & Winery ( N. Salsipuedes St.). The show is Kaski’s baby — she said it’s something she’s been dreaming about ever since she came here several years ago to produce the entertainment for the burlesque program at The Savoy. While that particular match didn’t pan out, Kaski nevertheless found plenty of other good reasons to stick around our city, and several of them will be participating in When the Lights Go Out. These loosely connected vignettes will be filled with great music, teeming with acrobats and topquality professional dancers, and twisted into provoc ative FLYING HIGH: Cabaret and acrobatics shape by Kaski and collide in When the Lights Go Out. Smithwick, who will act as a mistress of ceremonies and a provocateur. For those of you who were at the recent Direct Relief benefit at the Bacara, the beautiful Zen Arts crew will be a familiar sight. And if you were not, well, perhaps you caught them at Coachella or the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, as those are both events at which they have been main-stage performers. According to Kaski, the show is meant to be a dancer’s dream, into which the audience will be invited. Aerialist Autumn Phillips is in the cast, and choreographer Jason Young, who has worked with Britney Spears and Madonna, will be creating the movement. Set designer Victoria Imperioli plans to give the same careful attention to the seating and the setup for the audience as she does to the set for the performers, and Allen Murray, a top prop designer on such Hollywood hits as Scarface and Alien, will lend his own brand of light and magic to the proceedings. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 8 p.m. For tickets, go to whenthelights — Charles Donelan

LAND’S END: Reeve Woolpert’s photo “POP” documents the beauty of the Gaviota Coast.

by Charles Donelan ALL TOGETHER NOW: From Gaviota to the Funk Zone, Coast Village Road to the Bacara Resort & Spa, groups small and large are coming together this spring to share art. Telling the tales of just three of these recent collaborations conveys some of the breadth and intensity of Santa Barbara’s art scene today. This month, it’s possible to traverse multiple worlds without leaving town, and to encounter the work of artists who are crossing boundaries and joining forces in both familiar and unfamiliar ways. When vested interests are set aside and creators step out of their comfort zones, interesting things begin to happen.

Dorene White’s “Foggy Morning at Naples”

PHOTOS OKAY: Let’s start at the Bacara Resort, where the artists under the banner of SCAPE (or Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment) are having a two-day festival they’re calling Visions of the Gaviota Coast Friday-Saturday, April 18-19. More than 100 paintings will be on display in a show that was juried by John Iwerks, and they will be available for purchase on Friday through a silent auction. For this exhibition, the SCAPE artists have decided to take a step that’s very much out of character for the organization: They’re including photography alongside predominantly plein air painting. Photographer and longtime eco-activist Reeve Woolpert, who will be the lone cameraman in this sea of paintbrushes and easels, gets that special privilege because of the quality of his work, which is wonderful, but also because of another special collaboration, which is Woolpert’s history of working effectively with Bacara General Manager Kathleen Cochran on setting up these annual shows. When I spoke with Woolpert recently, he expressed the desire that the Visions of Gaviota exhibit become the point of departure for even more unprecedented steps, saying that his “audience has the inclination but needs to be pushed over the edge into activism.” Like the artists of SCAPE, Woolpert sees the Bacara Resort as both a potential partner in the preservation of Gaviota and as a potential foe in the ongoing legal battles over such developments as the nearby Paradiso del Mare. Woolpert’s photos record his love for the original state of the land, and they reflect a passionate engagement with the community’s decision-making pro-

DISCOVERING SCULPTURE: Poet and philanthropist Robert Emmons got started making sculptures through the encouragement and guidance of one of his closest friends, the Montecito-based art“Brief Encounter” by ist Aristides DemeRobert Emmons trios. Demetrios has had a long and distinguished artistic career, working for both public institutions and private clients in prominent locations all over the world. Santa Barbarans don’t need to go far to see his work — there’s a great example on the beautiful expanse of lawn leading from SBCC’s Garvin Theatre down toward West Beach. When Emmons took his first lessons in sculpture from Demetrios, both men were fast approaching their eighties, and neither knew where it would lead. Now, two years and several trips to Florence, Italy, later, Emmons has a show at Alex Mertens Fine Art on Coast Village Road in which he is paired with his neighbor Tom Mielko, who is exhibiting his highly detailed drawings of some of the animals at the Santa Barbara Zoo. “To be able to express yourself in bronze really is something,” says art dealer Mertens of Emmons’s work, which has proven to be an unexpected hit with the art-buying public. “Bob’s conversation with the bronze is just getting started,” he observed as we wandered from one striking figure to another. While clearly owing a great deal to such high Modernist icons as Alberto Giacometti, with this show, up through May 4, Emmons puts his own hand-crafted mark on the genre. FUNKY FREE-FOR-ALL: Close by in actual space, but miles away in feeling, there’s a collaborative group show at Reds Bar & Tapas right now involving four artists, three of whom are perhaps best known for their street art. David J. Diamant, Martin Diaz, Philip Koplin, and Skye Gwilliam agreed on the show’s subject, which is women, and on the title, which is One Track Mind, and then, at least if Diamant’s version of the process is to be believed, the rumble began. Using stencils and pasteups as collective points of departure, the artists in One Track Mind freely exchanged ideas and actual works to be further marked and elaborated by one another. The result is a show that’s buzzing with masculine energy, at least part of which was conjured out of rivalry and friendly disagreement. “When we face off to do something like this, it’s almost like a rap battle,” Diamant told me on Saturday, as music resounded off the walls of Reds in the early evening. The show is on ■ view until May 4.

ittsburgh native Kyle Abraham was just 14 years old when the John Singleton film Boyz n the Hood came out in 1991. Set in South Central Los Angeles, the movie told the story of young black men wrapped up in the infamous gang warfare between the Bloods and the Crips. Two thousand miles away, 8th-grader Abraham felt a powerful resonance with the themes of the film. “It’s a film about how we start out, how we see ourselves, and how others see us,” he explained recently. “It’s about how we’re told who we are before we know who we are.” Now a choreographer in his mid-thirties, Abraham remains fascinated by that particular moment in American history — much of his work circles around the black American experience of the 1980s and ’90s. That’s certainly the case with Pavement, an evening-length dance he’ll bring to UCSB’s Campbell Hall for two nights next week on Tuesday, April 22, and Wednesday, April 23. In creating Pavement, Abraham says, he thought of Boyz n the Hood as a time capsule: a reflection of the late 20th century. “It was a time of HIV and AIDS — a whole community having to be educated about the disease,” he noted.“It was a time of crack cocaine being brought into the community, a time of violence. I thought about the whole era as a genocide almost — an urgency to erase the black race.” At the same time, Abraham thought back further to what he called “the soul of black folks: jazz legends like Art Blakey.”Walking through downtown Pittsburgh, he began to see the dilapidated urban landscape as a place that “once had so much vitality.” As an award-winning choreographer and MacArthur Fellow running his own company, Abraham’s not claiming to be a product of the ghetto. On the contrary, he’s quick to explain that he studied music and visual art at his Pittsburgh elementary school, played a role in his high school musical, and was always encouraged to pursue his interest in the arts. Yet it wasn’t until legendary American choreographer Bill T. Jones gave a lecture/demonstration at his high school that Abraham saw a future for himself in dance. “I was kind of blown away by the company, by how confident they were in themselves,” he remembered. “It was something I hadn’t really seen before. I had just started dancing that year, and suddenly I was finding out that

STEP UP: Abraham.In.Motion.’s latest work, Pavement , was inspired by John Singleton’s 1991 film Boyz n the Hood . The dance comes to UCSB on April 22 and 23. people were creating dances with meaning and talking about what movement was derived from.” Armed with this new understanding of what dance could be, Abraham went on to study dance at SUNY Purchase but maintained his interest in other arts forms. Unlike many successful young choreographers, his path has taken him away from dance entirely for periods; he spent a number of years pursuing a career in music and working in art museums before finding his way back to choreography. That innate versatility and curiosity finds its way into his works; Pavement features film projection and spoken text as well as movement. Musically, too, Abraham draws on a wide range of influences. The score for Pavement is drawn primarily from opera, specifically works composed for castrato singers. “When I started making this project, I was thinking about the fact that from inside a gang mentality, it’s violent acts that make you a man,” Abraham explained, “yet for a castrato, it’s a violent act that emasculates. With his dancers, as with all his artistic influences, Abraham casts a wide net. The seven dancers in Pavement come from varied performing backgrounds, from those brought up in the club dance scene to salsa, modern dance, and ballet-trained dancers. As for the target audience, Pavement may not be the ideal work for children, due to its themes and language. For Abraham, giving performers a chance to speak onstage “adds to the humanity of the work.” “That’s always an interest of mine: making realistic and honest choices in my work,” he explained. “My two works previous to Pavement also had text in them but not always in the way people would expect to find text in contemporary dance or dance theater work.”

Arts & Lectures Presents Violinist Jennifer Koh


by Joseph Miller

Ages 5 – 12 • Monday – Friday • 9am – 3pm


hough she treads a busy global schedule of concerto performances and musical projects, since 2009, violinist Jennifer Koh has been on a quest to discover and demonstrate the connecting nerves of unaccompanied violin works old and new. All inevitably stand in the shadow of J.S. Bach’s three sonatas and three partitas, at least by comparison, if not by direct influence. Each recital of Koh’s three-part Bach and Beyond series rests on two of these six foundational works, complemented by contemporary pieces — some commissioned by, or written especially for, Koh. The juxtapositions have been hailed as brilliantly insightful programming, while the demanding and daring performances showcase the dynamic, even athletic, fiddling of an artist at the top of her game. UCSB Arts & Lectures first brought Koh to the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall for Bach and Beyond Part I in May 2011. Part II came in April 2013. This week, they present Part III, featuring Bach’s Sonatas No.  and No. , Sequenza VIII by Luciano Berio, and Passagen by John Zorn. Koh’s penetrating eye seems to have AND BEYOND: Jennifer Koh returns to Santa Barbara for a playful regard for allusions and symthe third installment of her Bach and Beyond concert series. metries, most of which lurk beneath the surface. The order, for example, of Bach’s works through all three programs forms the sequence 3, 2; by creating the double movements in the First Partita, the 1, 1; 2, 3, a palindrome and a principle of symmetry used by Second Sonata is where I feel he really starts to become his Bach. Below, we speak to Koh about her looming return own. He starts breaking the prior structures that had been completed before. So for example, in the First Sonata, you to Santa Barbara. always return to the tonic at the end of each movement, So, you are now five years into the Bach and [but] in the Second Sonata, you end on the dominant at Beyond project. Yes. I made three different programs the end of the first movement. So it almost continues into for this project, and I had it fall over six seasons so that each the fugue. It’s never completed; it’s never like you return one would be tour-able for two seasons. Now we’ve finally home. Even the fugue itself — in the First Sonata, it’s quite arrived at Bach and Beyond III. “fugu-ey” and easy to layer; the Second Sonata is not easy material to build into a fugue. For me, the third movement But your website calendar also shows you are still is almost symbolic; there are underlying bass eighth notes playing Part I and Part II. Yes, by special request. The that return. It’s like the beginning of his creative heartbeat. main thing is trying to introduce new works for each part, So this program is all about the idea of becoming, the idea so Bach and Beyond III is the priority for this and the next of evolving and developing who you are as an individual season. But there are some presenters that want all three. artist. That heartbeat really begins in the Second Sonata Some of them just came in and were excited about the idea for me. when I did Part II, so then I returned to do Part I. I’m not exactly sure how it will continue its life after the scheduled How do the program’s two contemporary works six years. I have a feeling it will continue, mostly because I fit in? The Berio, interestingly enough, was inspired by have been given these wonderful gifts by composers who the Bach Chaconne (from Partita No. ). The idea that have come to different Bach and Beyond programs. So, started in Bach and Beyond Part I, an emotional arc, was John Zorn came to Part I, and then gave me this gift of something that I wanted to create in the program, but with a piece called Passagen, which I will be playing in Santa a more contemporary idea — the idea of yearning and Barbara. And then Kaija Saariaho came to Part II last year, spiritual reaching beyond oneself. I hope I’m still able to and gave me this gift, which I just premiered in New York, create that within the program with the Sequenza anchoring before intermission. As for the Zorn, he did write it called Frises for violin and electronics. after he heard Bach and Beyond Part I, and I do believe it’s You have said that the current program conveys quite influenced by sonata form. In my mind, I also hear the idea of development, whereas Part II was a lot of Bartók. all about beginnings. I’ve done all six sonatas and partitas in marathon concerts, and for me, especially when UCSB Arts & Lectures presents I play them consecutively, it’s really about the birth and the West Coast premiere of development of Bach as an artist.

WHO’S THAT BAND? The Fab Four — Ron McNeil, Ardy Sarraf, Michael Amador, and Rolo Sandoval — make their living by looking and playing exactly like another well-known group.

LOVE ME DO The Marjorie Luke Theatre Turns 10 by Charles Donelan


he boardmembers of the Marjorie Luke Theatre have shown they know how to turn a junior high school auditorium into a major community resource, and on Saturday, April 26, they plan to show that they also know how to throw a great party. In honor of the 10th anniversary of the renovation of the theater, and in conjunction with Santa Barbara Junior High’s (SBJHS) 80th birthday, they are throwing a Beatles bash starring The Fab Four, an acclaimed cover band that sings in the same key as the Beatles. Alan Parsons will introduce the band from the stage and talk about his time working as an engineer on Abbey Road and Let It Be. After screaming their lungs out at The Fab Four, guests will repair to the SBJHS courtyard, which is being transformed into an octopus’s garden for the “Yellow Submarine Soiree” afterparty. The event, which benefits the Luke’s youth theater program, is sponsored by Montecito Bank & Trust and by Seymour Duncan, and if it’s anything like the last time The Fab Four played the Luke, it will be a night to remember. Board president Gerrie Fausett likened the energy that night to “being in the Ed Sullivan Theater when the Beatles hit America by storm.” If that’s not high praise, I don’t know what is. As for the Marjorie Luke Theatre, high praise is the only kind that’s appropriate. In the 10 years since its renovation, the Luke has been a model of availability and quality, not only for Santa Barbara Junior High School, but for the entire community. Measured on a per-seat basis, “it’s the most affordable theater rental option in town,” according to theater’s founding board president Rod Lathim. Over the last decade, many, many great performers have played there, including Rufus Wainwright, Mavis Staples, and the Blind Boys of Alabama. And the Luke has range — there have been flying dance troupes and oratorios. Between 2006-2008, when the theater was in use by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, such luminaries as

Naomi Watts, James Cameron, and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman graced its stage. “What makes me happy is seeing the community use it. I like seeing 300 kids on that stage,” said Lathim, adding that he also feels “inspired by the shows that Alpha Resource Center puts on and by the Luke’s nine-year relationship with Viva el Arte, which brings fantastic, Grammy-winning groups like La Santa Cecilia to our community at no charge.” The theater is in use more than 300 days a year, and with 45 percent of those dates being rentals, there has been no need for additional capital campaigns to keep the operation going. Thanks to general manager Rick Villa and his small staff, the room looks just as clean and crisp as it did 10 years ago — no small feat for a junior high facility. And while the school owns the building, all the equipment in it is the property of the theater’s foundation, and that includes a brand-new Yamaha CL mixing board — a $30,000 piece of equipment that you won’t find in most junior highs. “They said it couldn’t be done,” said Lathim. “People told me, ‘You can’t have a real professional theater that’s inside a junior high school,’ but we proved them wrong.” Many of the original donors to the Luke are sure to be in attendance on Saturday, and the enthusiasm ought to be flowing freely by the time Parsons and The Fab Four take the stage at 7 p.m. Join the crowd on Saturday, and see if you can’t prove them all wrong one more time, not just by having a real theater — and a real party — in a junior high school, but by bringing the Beatles back together for one more night of Beatle — and Luke — mania. The Fab Four play the Marjorie Luke Theatre (721 E. Cota St.) on Saturday, April 26, at 7 p.m. For tickets and information, call 963-0761 or visit or

Southern Comfort

They’re More Than Okay

onathan Larson’s RENT became an instant sensation 20 years ago when it premiered in New York City, and it has gone on to become the most beloved of all the post-Broadway musicals among young people. Gritty yet uplifting, and scandalous but with a big heart, RENT is the show that keeps on giving back to the companies that choose to put it on. This stellar production, directed by Kameron Tarlow and performed at the Santa Barbara Art Foundry space deep in the Funk Zone, manages to capitalize on what’s great about RENT and at the same time show off the impressive skills of a large cast of talented young actors. Gabe Reali makes a terrific, believable Mark, thus establishing the basis for a story that’s one part Alphabet City, circa 1988, and the rest La Bohème, the timeless opera about starving artists living in cold apartments. The success of this RENT comes from several sources. The sharp, witty choreography makes the most of the Foundry’s irregular setup, and the excellent band sounds great coming from a loft platform above and to the left of the playing area. Matthew Doohan gets maximum mileage out of Roger’s many emotional ups and downs. As Maureen, Miriam Dance-Leavy is consistently stunning, her vocal capacity clearly well matched to this demanding role. Julia Kupiec is a great and memorable Mimi, seemingly made for the part with her expressive singing voice and diminutive stature. No review of this RENT would be complete without mentioning the magical Daniel Salinas, who pulls off a remarkably convincing Angel, or Tad Murroughs, who gives Tom Collins a tough, streetwise presence to counterbalance his intellectual side. Kasey Bryant and Alba Vargas are brilliant, as well, as is the entire ensemble of singers and ■ dancers. If you care about this show, don’t miss this fine production.

Ghost of a Chance. At Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre, Sunday, April 13. Shows through May 18.

ow that April is here, Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre had fired up the grill and swung open the doors of the barn for another season of its own unique approach to thespianism. The Circle Bar B (CBB) riding ranch/lodge/theater is located a short 20-minute drive north of Goleta, a couple of miles up Refugio Canyon Road — a small step for travel, a mighty leap in ambiance. The 2014 season opens with a specimen of what Circle Bar B does best — comedies with heart. Ghost of a Chance, a 1990s comedy by husband/wife playwrights Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus, is a surprisingly affecting story about an engaged couple’s confusions about compatibility and commitment as they confront the past during a weekend in a Connecticut cabin. The title refers not only to their slim odds of making it but also to the actual ghost of the young woman’s former husband, who can’t move on to the next world because of his attachments to the cabin. Allison Threadgold makes a fine debut as the conflicted Bethany, while Circle Bar B veteran Sean O’Shea plays her dullard fiancé, Floyd. Kathy Marden is Floyd’s domineering Jewish mother, a widow who holds tight to the urn of her late husband’s ashes. Tiffany Story returns as Crystal, a Twinkie-eating hippie psychic hired by Bethany to evict the ghost of Chance (Matt Cooper) and guide him toward the light. Mike Wondolowski ■ makes his CBB debut as Adam Lucas.

Sydney Electronic Artist Makes Post-Coachella Stop in S.B.


wenty-two-year-old Sydney native Harley Edward Streten isn’t quite used to the prospect of being Flume, even though his set at Coachella this past weekend brought a crowd too large to accommodate the massive Gobi Tent he was performing in. Being largely responsible for a musical and cultural resurgence isn’t easy, as Streten made clear during our recent interview. Still, it’s hard to shake the feeling that his name is one we’ll be hearing for a long time, and that’s not just because of Flume’s uncanny ability to mesh song-based electronic pop with hard-edged dance beats, either. For Streten, Flume is something that’s happened to him, rather than a persona that he’s grown into, a subject he discussed with us last week.

Santa Barbara Duo Debut

Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn

WED, MAY 7 / 8 PM / UCSB CAMPBELL HALL Tickets start at $32 / $18 UCSB students

there’s a good scene in Sydney, but for me, I got into it so early that I couldn’t even go into a lot of these things. Like, the Flume thing really started happening when I was 19 and I lived in a place called the Northern Beaches, which is just outside the city. It’s almost like its own self-contained beachside town, maybe like a half-hour drive from Sydney. I was never really immersed in the city or in the music scene there; it was all pretty much online and me doing my own thing. … I think that scenes are really cool, and can be really great, but I think I may have been able to do my own thing more because I wasn’t trying to fit into a sound that already existed. I was just doing my own thing, and that’s how it all worked out.

A rare chance to see two of the world’s most highly regarded banjo players and fearless musical explorers together. Each has won independent acclaim: Béla Fleck, as the 14 Grammy-winning musical chameleon; Abigail Washburn, as the “daring, definite talent” (The Wall Street Journal ) with the beguiling voice. The pair will perform a mix of traditional and original songs.

Is there a specific moment that you remember thinking “I might be able to make a career out of this”? Well, I heard my music on the

radio for the first time when I was 14, on the local Sydney indie station, and I remember hearing FBi Radio. I heard it in the car with my dad, and I was super stoked, but that wasn’t really the game changer. I think that moment was when I signed with my label, Future Classic. They were the coolest thing, with all the coolest artists, and I couldn’t believe they wanted my music. I was like, “Are you fuckin’ serious?” That was insane. That was the moment that I realized this could become a career sooner than I thought. I always knew that I wanted to do this, but I never knew how long it was going to take. And that’s when it started to click.

Have people started to call you Flume yet? Well, if they don’t know

my name, they’ll call me Flume, especially at the shows. Once they know my name, they call me Harley, but it hasn’t really been a huge issue yet.

Therapeutic Coaching

Was this always the goal, to make dance music? Yeah, and from an early age. I was delivering papers when I was like 10 or 11, and I’d always daydream about being an artist as a full-time thing. And then I went on to teaching — I used to teach at Ableton Live school in Sydney. I actually really like teaching, as well. I had an idea when I was 18 or 19 to start tutoring people, like the way that people get tutored in saxophone or guitar, but for production. I really enjoyed it, but I don’t have time for that anymore.

HWY 126 HWY 101

If increased heart rate and multiple adrenaline rushes are signs of success for action-film viewers, The Raid  more than succeeds. The Indonesian action-meetsmartial-arts flick, a sequel to the 2011 original, is sizzlingly orchestrated by writer/ director/editor Gareth Evans, a Welshman who so loved the Indonesian action-film scene that he relocated there and plunged his passions into the genre. Unfortunately, the subtitles and stigma of its “foreign film”-ness may have scared off an audience demographic that would soak it up with glee and get more than their money’s worth. In the second installment, originally subtitled The Raid: Berandal — Indonesian for “thug”— martial-arts star Iko Uwais reprises his role as a cop of right mind and morality, who goes deep undercover to expose a ring of corrupted policemen. On the job, he embroils himself in a turf war of Indonesian and Japanese gangsters and father-and-son power plays and encounters plenty of opportunities to demonstrate his superior martial artistry, usually dispensing punishing blows by hand, no weapons necessary. Plot machinations keep the story moving, dancing between good and evil, bad cops and good crooks, and pinches of Shakespearean allusions. Still, it’s the action parts of this equation that most bedazzle, thanks to a slightly crazed and seductive sensory choreography. Yes, it’s too bad about the pain and suffering attached to the characters. Then again, most of them are bad news, and we’re always keenly aware that this is only a movie and that, somehow, no humans or animals were harmed in the process of making this film.

The following films are playing in Santa Barbara FRIDAY, APRIL 18, THROUGH THURSDAY, APRIL 24. Descriptions followed by initials — DJP (D.J. Palladino), JW (Josef Woodard) — have been taken from our critics’ reviews, which can be read in full at The symbol ✯ indicates the film is recommended.

Rio 2 (101 mins.; G) Most big-studio animated features come off like epics, broken up from time to time with sing-along numbers as operatic embellishment. It helps everybody to remember the overall mood. This unremittingly clichéd film, a sequel cut

from the worst formula for sequels, has it backward. Big production numbers that no doubt employed many worthy musicians, artists, and tech support are glued together with a story that would fall apart if the clichés were purged. All the characters talk TV: “Oh no you di-uhnt”; “I don’t think so”; “It’s time you stopped thinking of yourself and more about your family” being foremost among this film’s empty, half-written phrases. This time out, all the characters head inland from the fabled city of the title to chase down a rumored sighting of more blue parrots, previously considered extinct. There they meet old comic enemies, as well as a really evil white-man deforester who’s all about turning the jungle into an unpaved parking lot. You can imagine the comeuppance in about half a second. (Remember, they pay these writers a lot.) The worst aspect of this film, though, has to be main character Blu, mouthed by Jesse Eisenburg in that now-annoying blurt, check, deliver style of his. (He’s due to top Woody Allen as the most imitateable of our actors.) I wanted to scream 10 minutes into the movie. Your kids probably shouldn’t like, but will love, this trite musically bouncing thing. Oh, and the 3-d is not worth the price. (DJP) Fairview (2-D and 3-D)/ Fiesta 5 (2-D and 3-D)

PREMIERES Bears (77 mins.; G) John C. Reilly narrates this documentary about an Alaskan bear family and the growth of its young cubs. Camino Real/Fiesta 5

Dom Hemingway (93 mins.; R: sexual content, nudity, pervasive language, some violence, drug use)

Following a 12-year prison sentence, a notorious safe cracker (Jude Law) returns home to London looking for revenge. Metro 4

A Haunted House 2 (87 mins.; R: crude and sexual content, nudity, pervasive language, drug use, some violent images)

Marlon Wayans stars in this horror-film parody about a man who moves into his dream home only to be plagued by paranormal events. Metro 4 Heaven Is for Real (100 mins.; PG: thematic material including some medical situations)

A small-town boy makes big waves following a near-death experience. Greg

Kinnear and Colton Burpo star.


Camino Real/Fiesta 5

The Other Woman (109 mins.; R: some

✯ Captain America: The Winter Soldier (136 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences

sexual references)

of violence, gunplay, action throughout)

A man’s wife teams up with his two mistresses to enact revenge. Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton star.

Chris Evans reprises his role as Captain America and takes on a new threat: Soviet agent Winter Soldier. While The Winter Soldier lacks all that 1940s panache and fedora appeal, it’s beautifully set up and, more importantly, fraught with consequence. (DJP)

Camino Real (Opens Thu., Apr. 24, 9pm)

Transcendence (119 mins.; PG-13: sci-fi action and violence, some bloody images, brief strong language, sensuality)

A scientist (Johnny Depp) working toward creating a sentient machine goes head-to-head with a radical anti-technology organization. Arlington/Camino Real Under the Skin (108 mins.; R: graphic nudity, sexual content, some violence, language)

An alien seductress (Scarlett Johansson) targets hitchhikers in Scotland. Paseo Nuevo

SCREENINGS The Darjeeling Limited (91 mins.; R: language)

Writer/director Wes Anderson’s 2007 film tells the story of three brothers who come together a year after their father’s death and embark on a bonding trip through India. Mon., Apr. 21, 7 and 10pm, Isla Vista Theater, 960 Embarcadero del Norte

Saving Mr. Banks (125 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements including some unsettling images)

Author P.L. Travers reflects on her life while Walt Disney begins production on the film adaptation of her novel Mary Poppins. Spoonfuls of sugar, salt, and historically charged artistic in-fighting make Saving Mr. Banks an intriguing, if overly slick, operation. (JW) Sun., Apr. 20, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

Odayaka (102 mins.; NR) Filmmkaer Nobuteru Uchida examines the controversial reactions to the Fukushima nuclear fallout in this 2012 documentary. Screens as part of the Nuclear Japan: Japanese Cinema Before and After Fukushima film series. Tue., Apr. 22, 7pm, UCSB’s Pollock Theater

Rescue in the Philippines: Refuge from the Holocaust (56 mins.; NR) This 2013 documentary, narrated by Liev Schreiber, tells the story of how five brothers — together with the first president of the Philippines, the former governor of Indiana, and Colonel Eisenhower — helped 1,200 Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. Wed., Apr. 16, 6pm, UCSB’s MultiCultural Center

Big Bad Wolves (110 mins.; NR) A string of brutal murders puts a vigilante detective, a grieving father, and a religious studies teacher on a collision course with one another. Tense-yet-eloquent dialogue and little joybuzzer jolts of dark humor ease the complex pain at the core of a story about things that go very dark and malevolent in the basement. (JW) Fri., Apr. 18, 7 and 10pm, Isla Vista Theater, 960 Embarcadero del Norte

Footloose (107 mins.; R: sexual content, language, smoking involving teens)

Kevin Bacon stars in this 1984 classic about a city teen who moves to a small town where rock ’n’ roll music is banned. Screenwriter Dean Pitchford will be available for a post-screening Q&A to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary.

Camino Real (2- D)/Metro 4 (2-D)

Divergent (139 mins.; PG-13: intense violence and action, thematic elements, some sensuality)

In a world where people are divided based on virtues, a young girl (Shailene Woodley) discovers she’s a Divergent and won’t fit in. Despite the big-screen pleasures, moments of suspended disbelief ultimately get in the way of a complete good time. But there are plenty of small-plate treats along the way. (JW) Fiesta 5

✯ Draft Day (109 mins.; PG-13: brief strong language, sexual references) The general manager of the Cleveland Browns (Kevin Costner) tries to acquire the season’s number one draft pick. Ivan Reitman’s football movie opens a little stagy, but once the skin trading begins, the script takes on a nicely burnished complexity. (DJP) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo God’s Not Dead (113 mins.; PG: thematic material, brief violence, an accident scene)

A college student’s faith is tested when he meets a philosophy professor who doesn’t believe in God. Plaza de Oro

✯ 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, some sexual content)

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

✯ The Lunchbox

(104 mins.; PG: thematic material, smoking)

When a lunchbox in Mumbai’s complex delivery system ends up in the wrong hands, a young wife and an older man begin a correspondence with life-changing implications. However dry the story might seem on paper, The Lunchbox is a surprisingly engaging film drawn from an almost-minimalist plot machinery. (JW) Plaza de Oro

Noah (138 mins.; PG-13: violence, disturbing images, brief suggestive content)

Russell Crowe stars in this take on the biblical tale of a man who takes extreme measures to protect his family from an impending flood. Darren Aronofsky directs. Noah is so vastly epic in its blundering that some smart people want to call it profound and ignore the patently stupid qualities that make it so unintentionally humorous and, worse, mostly boring. (DJP) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

Thu., Apr. 24, 7pm, UCSB’s Pollock Theater

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF APRIL ď›œď˜ż ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): It’s Compensation Week. If you have in the past suered from injustice, it’s an excellent time to go in quest of restitution. If you have been deprived of the beauty you need to thrive, now is the time to get ďŹ lled up. Wherever your life has been out of balance, you have the power to create more harmony. Don’t be shy about seeking redress. Ask people to make amends. Pursue restorations. But don’t, under any circumstances, lust for revenge.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): “Our brains are no longer conditioned for reverence and awe,â€? said novelist John Updike. That’s a sad possibility. Could you please do something to dispute or override it, Taurus? Would it be too much to ask if I encouraged you to go out in quest of lyrical miracles that ďŹ ll you with wonder? Can I persuade you to be alert for sweet mysteries that provoke dizzying joy and uncanny breakthroughs that heal a wound you’ve feared might forever plague you? Here’s what the astrological omens suggest: Phenomena that stir reverence and awe are far more likely than usual.


your fear, diminishing your power to accomplish the task at hand. Here’s a more useful inquiry: “Do you want it strongly enough or do you not want it strongly enough?� With this as your meditation, you might be inspired to do whatever’s necessary to pump up your desire. And that is the single best thing you can do to ensure your ultimate success.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): I swear my meditations are more dynamic when I hike along the trail through the marsh than if I’m pretzeled up in the lotus position back in my bedroom. Maybe I’ve been inuenced by Aristotle’s Peripatetic School. He felt his students learned best when they accompanied him on long strolls. Then there was philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who testiďŹ ed that his most brilliant thoughts came to him as he rambled far and wide. Even if this possibility seems whimsical to you, Leo, I invite you to give it a try. According to my reading of the current astrological omens, your moving body is likely to generate bright ideas and unexpected solutions and visions of future adventures.


(May 21 - June 20): I wonder if it’s time for you to modify an old standby. I’m getting the sense that you should consider tinkering with a familiar resource that has served you pretty well. Why? This resource may have some hidden weakness that you need to attend to in order to prevent a future disruption. Now might be one of those rare occasions when you should ignore the old rule,“If it ain’t broke, don’t ďŹ x it.â€? So be proactive, Gemini. Investigate what’s going on beneath the surface. Make this your motto: “I will solve the problem before it’s a problem — and then it will never be a problem.â€?

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Throughout North America and Europe, there are hundreds of unused roads. Many are former exit and entrance ramps to major highways, abandoned for one reason or another. Some are stretches of pavement that used to be parts of main thoroughfares before they were rerouted. I suggest we make “unused roadsâ€? your metaphor of the week, Virgo. It may be time for you to bring some of them back into operation, and maybe even relink them to the pathways they were originally joined to. Are there any missing connections in your life that you would love to restore? Any partial bridges you feel motivated to ďŹ nish building?



(June 21 - July 22): “Do you really have what it takes or do you not have what it takes?� That’s the wrong question to ask, in my opinion. You can’t possibly know the answer ahead of time, for one thing. To dwell on that quandary would put you on the defensive and activate

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Karma works both ways. If you do ignorant things, ignorant things may eventually be done to you. Engage in generous actions, and at some future date you may be the unexpected beneďŹ ciary of generosity. I’m expecting more of the latter than the former for

you in the coming days, Libra. I think fate will bring you sweet compensations for your enlightened behavior in the past. I’m reminded of the fairy tale in which a peasant girl goes out of her way to be kind to a seemingly feeble, disabled old woman. The crone turns out to be a good witch who rewards the girl with a bag of gold. But as I hinted, there could also be a bit of that other kind of karma lurking in your vicinity. Would you like to ward it o? All you have to do is unleash a urry of good deeds. Anytime you have a chance to help people in need, do it.

1906 for showing that the electron is a particle. Together, they helped tell the whole story about the electron, which as we now know is both a wave and a particle. I think it’s an excellent time for you to try something similar to what George did: Follow up on some theme from the life of one of your parents or mentors; be inspired by what he or she did, but also go beyond it; build on a gift he or she gave the world, extending or expanding it.


(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): As they lie in the sand, African crocodiles are in the habit of opening their jaws wide for hours at a time. It keeps them cool, and allows for birds called plovers to stop by and pluck morsels of food that are stuck between the crocs’ molars. The relationship is symbiotic. The teeth-cleaners eat for free as they provide a service for the large reptiles. As I analyze your astrological aspects, Scorpio, I’m inclined to see an opportunity coming your way that has a certain resemblance to the plovers’. Can you summon the necessary trust and courage to take full advantage?

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): You have been a pretty decent student lately, Aquarius. The learning curve was steep, but you mastered it as well as could be expected. You had to pay more attention to the intricate details than you liked, which was sometimes excruciating, but you summoned the patience to tough it out. Congrats! Your againstthe-grain eort was worth it. You are deďŹ nitely smarter now than you were four weeks ago. But you are more wired, too. More stressed. In the next chapter of your life story, you will need some downtime to integrate all you’ve absorbed. I suggest you schedule some sessions in a sanctuary where you can relax more deeply than you’ve allowed yourself to relax in a while.



(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Are you sure you have enough obstacles? I’m afraid you’re running low. And that wouldn’t be healthy, would it? Obstacles keep you honest, after all. They motivate you to get smarter. They compel you to grow your willpower and develop more courage. Please understand that I’m not taking about trivial and boring obstacles that make you numb. I’m referring to scintillating obstacles that ďŹ re up your imagination; rousing obstacles that excite your determination to be who you want and get what you want. So your assignment is to acquire at least one new interesting obstacle. It’s time to tap into a deeper strain of your ingenuity.

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You have the power to shut what has been open or open what has been shut. That’s a lot of responsibility. Just because you have the power to unleash these momentous actions doesn’t mean you should rashly do so. Make sure your motivations are pure and your integrity is high. Try to keep fear and egotism from inuencing you. Be aware that whatever you do will send out ripples for months to come. And when you are conďŹ dent that you have taken the proper precautions, by all means proceed with vigor and rigor. Shut what has been open or open what has been shut — or both.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): In 1937, physicist George Paget Thomson won a Nobel Prize for the work he did to prove that the electron is a wave. That’s funny, because his father, physicist J. J. Thomson, was awarded the Nobel Prize in

Homework: Comment on the following hypothesis: “You know what to do and you know when to do it.�

WINE GUIDE Wine of the Week Gainey Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2012 From four generations of Gaineys comes this ruby red‑colored, raspberry‑scented sipper from the Sta. Rita Hills, where the family owns a vineyard in addition to their home ranch adjacent to the Santa Ynez Airport. Like many of the emerging 2012s, there is a bitter tension at the core of this wine, briefly flirting with red fruit before drawing you toward more tannic elements of anise and beet juice. Whether that’s due to an industry‑wide fascination with picking barely ripe fruit or an emblematic sign of the abundant vintage remains to be seen, but it’s interesting drinking no matter what. See or head up to 3950 East Highway 246 for a tasting.
