This hard-running athlete is none other than John Zant, our hard-working sports editor, back when he was a Golden Knight on St. Francis High School’s trackand-field team in La Cañada. The fastest sprinter in his league, he was first to clear the tape in this 1964 shot as anchor on an 880-yard relay. In the fall, John was a running back on his football team and scored 12 touchdowns the year they won a CIF championship. He remembers dreading the start of a practice season because it took so much hard work to get into shape, “but it was a powerful feeling to be in shape, to run 70 yards for a touchdown or go full speed halfway around the track and not run out of breath.”

Janet Wolf

Happy Mother’s Day from The G Spa!

for 2nd District Supervisor PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTO


he most immediate and obvious reason to reelect Supervisor Janet Wolf to a third term is the resolve she demonstrated in protecting county air-quality standards in the face of a political onslaught waged last fall by Santa Maria Energy. The company’s proposal to operate 136 onshore wells near Orcutt would have generated about 88,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases a year. While that’s not enough to singlehandedly melt Greenland’s ice sheet, it is far more than Santa Barbara County — and many other jurisdictions — traditionally allow. In years past, the county’s line in the sand has been to require environmental mitigation and offsets for oil and gas projects generating more than 10,000 metric tons. But this was no traditional project, and county energy planners and the county planning commission both were persuaded the project should be given greater latitude to pollute, raising the maximum emissions allowed to 62,000 metric tons. With Wolf’s vote, however, the county supervisors insisted that the tougher standards be met despite theatrical lamentations — over the 62 cents a barrel of additional costs — by the energy company and its supporters. Wolf did more, however, than merely vote the right way. When she discovered that Lompoc’s representative to the Air Pollution Control District was a paid publicist for Santa Maria Energy, she blew the whistle about a possible conflict. That was classic Wolf: prepared, determined, and willing to ask the tough questions. Likewise, we agreed with her key vote to maintain the status quo with regard to the rocks and boulders protecting the sands of Goleta Beach from being swept down shore. In that instance, Wolf parted company with many in the environmental community — who instead promoted a program of “managed retreat” when it came to the single most popular park in Santa Barbara County. In this, she displayed another laudable trait: independence. Wolf is currently facing a serious challenge from Roger Aceves, Goleta’s former mayor and longtime member of the Goleta City Council. In years past, the two were closely allied. While we’re somewhat mystified by Aceves’s entry

Call Now! Limited Space! into the race, it is a free country, and he’s certainly entitled. More troubling by far, however, is his strong support for Santa Maria Energy and, likewise, the company’s generous financial support for him. His election would not bode well for county air-quality standards. Aceves, a passionate partisan for all things Goletan, remains convinced his city got a raw deal from the county when it first incorporated. He may, in fact, be right, but the Goleta contingent signed the deal with their eyes wide open. To renegotiate the terms now, as Aceves has demanded, would bolster Goleta’s bottom line, but only at the expense of the county’s coffers. Why county voters would choose to elect someone clearly advocating against their best interests is beyond us. By contrast, Wolf has done exactly what she’s pledged to do: work hard, come prepared, speak her mind, and — on occasion — step on toes. She’s earned a third term, so please give it ■ to her.

Vote No on Measure M


easure M reminds us how for every complex problem, there is always a very simple solution, which, invariably, is flatout wrong. In this case, it’s even worse. Measure M, hatched by th District Supervisor Peter Adam, would require the County of Santa Barbara to spend whatever it takes each year to keep county roads, county buildings, and county parks from deteriorating any further. How could anyone argue with something so seemingly benign, innocuous, and sensible? Because it’s none of the above. With Measure M, Adam — a passionate believer in limited government — has launched what appears to be a frontal assault on the machinery of government but is in fact an act of political sabotage. If Measure M were to pass, it would drain $18 million-$44 million a year from the county’s general fund. The question that Adam and his allies have thus far declined to answer is where that money will come from. What existing programs will have to be cut and gutted so that the county’s rural roads are maintained at their current levels? Fire protection? Public safety? Mental health? To put this additional financial obligation in proper perspective, voters should understand county supervisors enjoy limited budgetary authority. Of the county’s $850 million budget, about 75 percent comes with state and

federal strings attached that cannot be legally snipped. Of the remaining 25 percent, over which the supervisors possess any discretionary authority — slightly more than $200 million a year — 60 percent is currently allocated to public safety. And the timing could not be worse. In the wake of the Great Recession, the County of Santa Barbara has already cut 580 positions. There is precious little wiggle room left in the budget. As a practical matter, not one cent of the money mandated by Measure M will pay to fill a single pothole on any of the busy city streets. Instead, it will be spent exclusively fixing county roads, which happen to be some of the least-traveled thoroughfares in the county. But city dwellers — as well as everyone else in the county — will suffer when important public services get the ax. We do not dispute the importance of maintaining our roads and county properties. And certainly our county roads need help. But this problem is not unique to Santa Barbara. The system by which road repairs have been traditionally financed for decades is falling apart everywhere throughout the United States. New solutions urgently need to be found, but Measure M — which would straitjacket the spending decisions of elected officials for decades to come — is decidedly the wrong way to go. It’s just that simple. ■

news briefs LAW & DISORDER The body of a 20-year-old UCSB student was found Sunday morning on the beach below Del Playa Park. Sierra Markee-Winkler of Eureka was discovered by a passing bicyclist at 7 a.m., and she was declared dead at the scene, but authorities say they are still trying to determine how and when she died. As of press time, an autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday, and a toxicology report will take several more weeks. Officials say at this point in their investigation there is no reason to suspect foul play. Gerald Torres, 43, and his 8-year-old son were injured 5/4 after he crashed his motorcycle into a sign and fence on Casitas Pass Road. Torres was arrested for DUI and admitted to Cottage Hospital with major head injuries and lacerations. His son sustained minor abrasions to his right leg and was released to a family member. Torres is a pastor at Reality church; Pastor Tyler Morgan, speaking for Reality, expressed the church’s compassion for Torres’s situation and said he has been put on leave.

Los Angeles–based attorney Jaime Segall-Gutierrez filed a second claim for damages against the city and police department on 5/2. Similar to the claim Segall-Gutierrez filed in January that was rejected in February, the latest alleges that Jason Hernandez, Ruben Rodriguez, Albert Sanchez, and Junior Frank Drew were slandered last November at the Operation Falling Dawn press conference when Police Chief Cam Sanchez presented 68 names and mugshots of alleged gang members, gang associates, and drug customers. The four seek more than $1 million each.

COUNTY The lead project manager for the North County Jail will be getting his job back — at least for the time being — after he was fired last summer under controversial circumstances. Grady Williams sued the county over his termination, claiming he was discriminated against after disclosing he had advanced cancer. The county, however, said he was fired for misconduct and insubordination and has sued its own Civil Service Commission after the commission ruled that Williams committed no wrongdoing and should be reinstated. Williams will resume his post as the matter works its way through courts. The Water Guardians, a new Santa Barbara– based anti-fracking group, has gathered 20,000 signatures for an initiative that would ban fracking, acid well-stimulation treatments, cyclic steam injection, and other “enhanced” oil-extraction techniques for future projects in the unincorporated areas of the county. If 13,201 of the signatures are valid, the initiative will be placed on the November ballot, or the Board of Supervisors could adopt the measure beforehand with a 3-2 vote. The supervisors on Tuesday approved a threeyear contract between the Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services and Traditions Behavioral Health, which can provide up to five full-time psychiatrists for the longunderstaffed department. The contract could cost up to $5.8 million through June 2017; vacant


is working, the toolbox is full, the tools are in working order, and these extraordinary measures are not necessary.” The first witness was Sergeant Dave Henderson, who, along with two other full-time officers, two part-time officers, and two information technology specialists, spent six months investigating whether Santa Barbara needed an injunction. After speaking with 30 current and former gang investigators and poring through reams of police records dating back to 1992, Henderson concluded that Santa Barbara has had 537 “gang members or active participants” over the past 19 years. In that time, the police department has gone through no fewer than three different information-management systems, making data mining difficult. That difficulty was apparent when Henderson was grilled by Haaland-Ford and other defense attorneys about the massive number of dots on the enlarged city map. Henderson acknowledged under cross-examination that the dots didn’t necessarily reflect that one of the 537 city’s gang members actually did anything wrong, just that something wrong happened at that location. In fact, he said, the alleged gang member could have been the victim or witness. Henderson also acknowledged that the dots representing expired warrants, for example, failed to distinguish between walking-a-dog-withouta-leash offenses to more serious violations.

Likewise, the dots failed to distinguish between offenses that have nothing to do with gang affiliation — such as domestic violence — and those that clearly do. That information, Henderson insisted, could be had, but it would take time and not on Tuesday. When asked how long, he responded it could take as long as six months or as short as a couple of hours. The challenge confronting Judge Sterne is whether she can divine how solid — or squishy — the city’s gang statistics really are. That determination will weigh heavily upon her decision. The ■ trial is expected to last 10-15 days. positions that would be filled are already budgeted in the next year’s budget. The psychiatrists would be expected to see 6-12 patients daily and perform follow-up evaluations at least once every three months. A measure asking voters to increase the hotel bed tax in the county’s unincorporated regions will head to the November ballot after the supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday, the final step in a months-long discussion on the matter. The increase from 10 percent to 12.5 percent — slightly higher than the 12 percent rate used by most of the cities in the county — would generate an extra $1.9 million in revenue per year. The Goleta City Council could soon institute its own smoking-related ordinances for tobacco retailing and secondhand smoke. The city’s retail ordinance would aim to prevent sales to minors, including vapor products like e-cigarettes; such stores couldn’t employ minors or open within 1,000 feet of schools. Enforcement would be handled by the county. The secondhand-smoke law would ban smoking in public places (restaurants and stores) and recreational areas (parks and hiking trails); signs would display the rules. The council will consider adoption later this month and iron out licensing details. The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to take control of the Veterans Memorial Building. The Veteran’s Coordinating Council has run the Cabrillo Boulevard property for 15 years, but after unsatisfactory audits and internal power struggles, the supes directed county staff to draft a new oversight plan. Three county properties — the vets building, courthouse space, and a veterans’ building in Lompoc — will be consolidated into one management plan that will start 7/1 and cost approximately $115,000 each year. ■


BY K E L S E Y B R U G G E R exual violence on college campuses jumped into the national spotlight last week as the executive office reminded Americans that the issue is an epidemic. The matter is two-tiered — prevention and response to assaults — and so prevalent that President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden created a task force to protect students, which will mandate campus climate surveys, establish new policies that better embody victims’ rights, and create a multipurpose website — — to publicize information. “Schools have a lot of work to do,” said Jill Dunlap, director of UCSB CARE (Campus Advocacy Resources and Education). “But it’s a task they are taking seriously and want to get right.” Last week, Dunlap arranged a visit from the person leading efforts at the national level. Catherine Lhamon, U.S. Department of Education assistant secretary for civil rights, is currently touring 14 universities, including UCSB, which received a $300,000 federal grant. The money funds a CARE full-time victims’ advocate, a half-time coordinator, and awareness campaigns. What’s causing greater concern in higher education are accusations from students across the country that university administrators have swept sexual-assault cases under the rug. The feds promised to investigate 55 universities for alleged inadequate responses. To receive federal funding, universities must uphold Title IX, a law that prohibits gender discrimination and addresses ending rape and sexual harassment on campuses. But the national discussion has questioned the extent to which universities are even equipped to handle serious criminal cases like sexual assault. “I think schools in general have hoped that they didn’t have to go there,” said District Attorney Joyce Dudley. “They need to get more training about violence in general, [including] sexual violence.” At UCSB — which was not one of the 55 schools named — very few forcible rapes are noted each year in the campus’s security report, and recent Sheriff ’s department reports show approximately 20 sexual assaults annually in Isla Vista. But last year, CARE saw 84 sexual assault cases, excluding stalking or domestic-violence incidents. Dunlap explained several reasons for this discrepancy: Her office is confidential, it includes incidents off campus, and there is often lag time in reporting. Judicial Affairs sees more than 100 cases each year — ranging from academic issues like plagiarism to serious crimes like assault — and 16 involved sexual assault in 2012-2013, said Director Stephan Franklin. Judicial Affairs is staffed

by seven employees and is intended to provide a “sub-criminal” option separate from the superior courts for students who choose not to go to the police. Victims who report sexual assault to the university are not encouraged or discouraged from reporting the incident to the police. It is presented as a mid-range option to students, i.e., for those who do not want to go to law enforcement. (Judicial Affairs does not refer cases to the District Attorney’s Office). In her experience, Dunlap explained, students often opt to report to Judicial Affairs because it’s less intimidating than a formal court process and offers a variety of outcomes. For UCSB senior Myra Crimmel, Judicial Affairs imposed its maximum punishment on the man she accused of raping her: He is suspended from school for two quarters and will be on probation when he returns to campus in the fall. But she argued the system is broken. “They just can’t deal with this level of crime,” asserted Crimmel, who sent a letter to UC President Janet Napolitano, arguing the process was delayed, lacked written documentation and transparency, and failed to offer legal guidance. Franklin said he couldn’t comment on individual proceedings, but UCSB spokesperson George Foulsham confirmed a UC Office of the President official will be reviewing the case. In February, the issue of sexual assault received national attention at UCSB when a brutal gang rape shook the campus community. Chancellor Henry Yang promised five new officers and installed two large surveillance cameras near Isla Vista Theater. Take Back the Night rallied, and the news outlets spread the story. The survivor was the “perfect victim” — she didn’t know the perpetrators, called the police, and immediately provided evidence via a rape kit. But not all rape cases are quite as linear or generate as much attention. Throw in drugs, alcohol, and a party-culture reputation, and a seemingly black-and-white issue becomes gray. More than 40 percent of sexual assaults involve drugs and alcohol, and 85 percent involve people who know each other. But activists contend alcohol and drugs should not dominate discussions. “Student party context should not be used to increase the burden of proof,” said UCSB English professor Chris Newfield. “The dialogue can begin to improve things. … The White House accelerated the process.” ■ may 8, 2014

Will Measure M Fix County Infrastructure or Fracture Its Budget?

MASS OPPOSITION: (from left) Sheriff Bill Brown; Supervisors Janet Wolf, Doreen Farr, Steve Lavagnino, and Salud Carbajal; DA Joyce Dudley; and others gathered at the county courthouse for the second of two No on Measure M events this Monday.


BY LY Z H O F F M A N eter Adam knows how to make a point. The th District supervisor, a Tea Party Republican whose district is the county’s most conservative, focused his 2012 election bid on saying Santa Barbara needs to better maintain its infrastructure. Since he took his seat on the dais, he has repeatedly tried to rally the Board of Supervisors to funnel more money toward county-owned roads, buildings, and parks, and though he was the lone vote against the budget last June, he convinced his colleagues to tack an extra $2 million to its road maintenance funding. But that $2 million wasn’t enough for him, and Adam advanced his crusade to this year’s June 3 ballot, collecting nearly 16,000 signatures in support of what is now known as Measure M, an ordinance that would force the supervisors to pay millions of dollars every year to keep the county’s facilities fresh. Where Adam talks of Measure M fixing potholes, leaky pipes, and vermin infestations, the county’s sheriff, district attorney, and four remaining supervisors — not to mention many other county officials and elected representatives — worry about it removing the stitches on a still-healing budget. At the height of the recession, the county cut $60 million in costs and axed nearly 600 full-time jobs. It faced a $72 million deficit and struggled over how to pay for jail operations once the North County facility opens in 2018. Now, going into the next fiscal year, the county expects a minor surplus, and multiple departments have worked together to create a delicate plan to save up for the approximately $16 million needed to annually operate both the existing jail on Calle Real and the main portion of the new Santa Maria jail. Opponents warn that Measure M’s potential passage — and the tens of millions of dollars it would corner — could upend that balancing act. Because of federal and state mandates, only about $200 million of the county’s projected $900 million budget falls under the supervisors’ purview and so does the only existing funding available to address Measure M. Public-safety

and health-and-human-services departments receive the bulk of that discretionary money and would therefore face the deepest cuts. Opponents state those cuts, higher taxes, and debt are likely to follow passage of the measure. Adam hasn’t proposed any specific reductions but said he wouldn’t vote to cut public safety, a promise opponents have called impossible to keep. As it appears on the ballot, Measure M sounds simple: “Shall the County Facilities Maintenance Ordinance requiring the County to keep County owned roads, parks and buildings in their current condition or better be adopted?” But th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, who agrees with Adam on issues more than anyone else on the dais but diverges sharply from him here, cautioned voters to keep something in mind:“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”


The fiscal and legal reviews of the measure espouse similar messages of caution. AuditorController Bob Geis wrote that because funding for programs provided by the county’s public-safety and social-services agencies is prescribed by federal and state law, “it may not be possible for the Board of Supervisors to fund the requirements of the ordinance” without new revenue sources. County Counsel Mike Ghizzoni pointed to a 2006 case out of Ventura County in which a state Court of Appeal struck down an ordinance that obligated that county’s board to a minimum budget for public-safety agencies because it tied the board’s hands. Measure M could do the same thing, Ghizzoni wrote, stating that it “may not be enforceable if it seriously impairs the board’s essential government function of managing the county’s financial affairs.” Ghizzoni declined to elaborate on the possibility of Measure M’s passage resulting in a lawsuit — which would cost the county millions of dollars — but District Attorney Joyce Dudley, who is throwing her political clout into defeating the initiative, said she is “deeply concerned about it from a legal standpoint.”


But Adam, bombarded with all of the concerns raised and questions asked by his measure’s many naysayers, remains confident in not only its legality but also its necessity. He has likened their reaction to a “conniption fit” and a “temper tantrum.” “They like being able to operate with impunity, and they don’t want to answer to the public,” he continued. Adam’s chief adversaries in this fight include fellow supervisors Supervisor Peter Adam Salud Carbajal, Janet Wolf, Doreen Farr, and Lavagnino, plus Dudley and Sheriff Bill Brown (Measure “If we were to lose this opportunity as a M’s campaign consultant is shared by Sergeant result of this measure being pushed through, it Sandra Brown, who is challenging Bill Brown would be a travesty,” Brown said, calling Adam’s “0-to-100 miles-per-hour” measure “the wrong for reelection and whom Adam supports). Other opponents include former North approach.” Lavagnino agreed. “It’s eating the County supervisors Joe Centeno and Joni elephant all in one bite, and you can’t do that,” Gray (whom Adam unseated in 2012, in a sur- he said. prise victory), as well as former Santa Barbara Cuts could come in the Health and Human school board president Lanny Ebenstein and Services departments and could be coupled several members of the Goleta and Carpinteria with tax increases, such as on oil extraction city councils. Behind Adam are former North and hotel beds, or parking fees at county County supervisors Tom Urbanske and Willy beaches, which the board fought hard against Chamberlin, Solvang Mayor Jim Richardson, in recent years. The county could also seek out and Santa Barbara City Councilmember (and infrastructure-specific grants, but whether those would be around year after year remains congressional hopeful) Dale Francisco.

The Brown vs. Brown Showdown


Sandra Challenges Bill for Santa Barbara Sheriff


Sgt. Brown claims the Sheriff ’s Office is bleeding overtime costs, explaining that by the end of March, it had already accrued $5.8 million in overtime when last fiscal year the number topped out at $6.2 million total. She also worries how the county will find the money to operate the Sheriff ’s Transition and Reentry (STAR) Complex, a $38.9 million, 228-bed wing that will focus on recidivism-reducing programs and be attached to the new $96.1 million, 376-bed North County Jail. While the county has been setting aside $17 million or so every year for the last five years to staff and run the northern jail when it’s opened by 2018, there’s been little to no public discussion about how to fund ongoing operations at the STAR complex. “We need to be honest with the taxpayers about it, and we need to have really

crystal-clear numbers,” said Sgt. Brown, also questioning the wisdom of investing in countysponsored programs and training. “It’s something that would be much more effective with outsourcing rather than Santa Barbara County growing its pension.” Sheriff Brown acknowledged ballooning overtime costs, noting that they are always underestimated in the department’s $120 million annual budget. The real problem, he

incarceration guidelines in 2011. But that’s why he says he’s working so hard to secure the money and manpower to build a new, more modern jail in Santa Maria that can keep dangerous people off the streets and also help them reintegrate into society when they’re released. Sheriff Brown acknowledged some deputies did quit because of the situation, but he explained that many others coincidentally reached retirement age at the same time, leaving PAU L WELLM AN


BY T Y L E R H AY D E N t’s no secret that morale is low in the Santa Barbara Sheriff ’s Office. Even its leader admits as much. But where Sheriff Bill Brown says occasional grumblings come from six years of budget cuts that whittled the department’s ranks by a 10th, his challenger in this June’s election, Sergeant Sandra Brown (no relation), claims there is pervasive discontent among the troops who fear and distrust their boss. Motivated by that concern and a list of desired changes both practical and philosophical — like focusing on education and intervention rather than incarceration, rethinking and reworking public-safety strategies, and creating an environment of shared leadership — Sgt. Brown represents the first organized challenge to Sheriff Brown’s seat since he was elected in 2006. He ran unopposed in 2010. With 36 years in law enforcement, the sheriff previously served as Lompoc’s police chief and held the same post in Moscow, Idaho. He’s married with three children and is a Lompoc resident; he’s a self-described history buff who likes to fish and golf in his limited off time. From Governor Jerry Brown to former congressmember Elton Gallegly, and from District Attorney Joyce Dudley to Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, his endorsement list is long and diverse, as are the donors to his reelection campaign. Sgt. Brown has been with the Sheriff ’s Office for 17 years and currently oversees its Coroner’s Bureau. A former narcotics detective, she’s also heavily involved with area nonprofits, sits on the board of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), and was a cofounder of the Deputy “Explorer” program. She likes to paint and sculpt, and her Orcutt home is filled with eclectic artwork. Her donor and endorsement roster is similarly mixed though not as deep, and she counts Supervisor Peter Adam among her biggest supporters. Through conversations with both Browns, as well as their fans and detractors, it’s clear that this election is defined by differing opinions over a few key issues, namely fiscal management, problems at the jail and the need for a new North County jail, the lead-up to and the fallout from the Deltopia riot, and possible dissension in the ranks.

BATTLING BADGES: Sheriff Bill Brown’s tenure as the county’s top cop has been defined by fiscal damage control, but he said things are looking up and reductions may soon become a thing of the past. His challenger, Sgt. Sandra Brown, claims the sheriff has mismanaged his limited resources and that she would focus on family education and community policing as alternatives to incarceration.

explained, is that the department has been reduced by 64 full-time positions since 2007, yet it is still tasked with keeping safe the unincorporated areas of the county, as well as four of its eight incorporated cities. He also disagrees with Sgt. Brown’s calculations over jail costs, explaining, “It’s indicative of the naïveté of somebody who has never really worked with a budget.” He’s confident questions over funding will soon be hammered out in ongoing discussions with county staff and supervisors.


The most consistent and audible criticism of Sheriff Brown during his last term has been about the state of the old, overcrowded jail and the safety of those inside. “The fact that there’s graffiti on the walls, the fact that they’re allowed to yell and scream?” said Sgt. Brown, who claims there’s been a mass exodus of custody deputies, with both rookies and veterans quitting out of frustration and anxiety. “It’s unacceptable, it’s not appropriate behavior, but it’s what happens when you mismanage staff.” Sheriff Brown agreed that the facility off Calle Real is both understaffed and insufficient to hold the 1,000-plus inmates who live there, a number that swelled after the state changed its

vacancies in the roster. Plus, he said, a complicated budget reduction coupled with last-minute union concessions in 2011 “blew a hole in the custody side of the house” and led to a “big churn factor.” Of the 192 custody deputies in the department, about a third of them are new hires, and 16 positions remain unfilled. But it’s a lot harder than merely plucking someone off the street to oversee a building full of accused and convicted criminals, said Sheriff Brown, whose recent recruitment effort netted 520 applications but only a dozen hirings. “Much of it relates to high standards,” he explained. “Many agencies have lowered standards to fill positions but have come to regret it.” In the entire Sheriff ’s Office, 41 of 640 full-time positions remain unfilled, but that’s not abnormal, as only one pay period in the last seven had every position filled. “And that,” said the sheriff, “was a fluke.” Looking back, Sheriff Brown explained that understaffing at the jail and elsewhere is a problem that far predates his term. “My first staff meeting after I was sworn in, I had a commander who looked me in the eye and said we need more people,” said the sheriff. “That was 64 people ago.”


As Sheriff Brown has focused on the jail, Sgt. Brown said other priorities, such as the gang unit and community policing, have suffered and that a better aim would be keeping people out of jail rather than building a new one. Of the antirecidivism push, Sgt. Brown quipped, “We have an adult population that we’ve institutionalized, and now we’ve decided to fix them. Wouldn’t it be nice if the system actually worked on the front end with our youth and families?” Instead, Sgt. Brown as sheriff would start a parent academy with a civilian employee who would work to get a host of nonprofits on the same page and “give back the art of parenting.” She also promised to provide better public education on evolving crime trends and how to curb juvenile delinquency before it starts. “If our focus isn’t on youth and family, I don’t know why I’m doing what I’m doing,” she said. “It has to start there.” Sheriff Brown believes that, despite the cuts, his thinned ranks are keeping crime numbers down and doing so with precision and pride. One feather in his cap are the Day Reporting Centers that help former inmates find jobs and housing, and he’d like to expand those if reelected. But mostly, he wants to preserve his department’s current resources and “stop the hemorrhaging.” This year, no positions were cut, and next year may actually see a couple added. Sheriff Brown would also like to implement a new data-collection system to better track what projects are actually working and where funds should be funneled. He said the Sheriff ’s Office received input from the National Institute of Justice and will be asking to hire a business systems analyst to extract and analyze data.


Though the fallout is no longer in headlines nationwide, Sgt. Brown is still troubled by the Sheriff ’s Office’s handling of Deltopia. She claims the planning was poor and the response late and disorganized, and that many of the issues came from Sheriff Brown not listening to his advisors. More alcohol enforcement should have been conducted earlier in the day, she asserted, and the event should have been handled like Halloween. It’s the purported mishandling of such things that de-motivates the deputies from performing their jobs, said Sgt. Brown, who accused the sheriff of dragging his feet in recent years to install more lighting in Isla Vista and work on ways to make the notoriously rowdy college town safer for its inhabitants.“Those are people’s kids, and it’s inexcusable that we aren’t providing them an umbrella of safety,” she said. Before next year’s Deltopia, Sheriff Brown said he and his staff will examine “all of our tactics and ideas” to better manage and corral the often inebriated crowds. He said the office will use social media — which drew thousands of out-of-towners to the seaside community — to discourage attendance and that his office will also look at potentially closing the streets next year, but he cautioned there are pros and cons to the move. He sees the problem as bigger than Deltopia, just one example of a “disturbing trend of an absolute suspension of responsibility in people cont’d page 19  who, for one reason or may 8, 2014

Brown Showdown cont’d from p. 17 another, get in a crowd mentality and condition, and they do things they would otherwise never do. … Much of it is fueled by an over-indulgence of alcohol.” Of Sgt. Brown’s claim that deputies are unmotivated to do their jobs because they are dissatisfied with him, Sheriff Brown bristled. “It was a preposterous statement. That’s absolute nonsense,” he said.“They do a great job each and every day, and I’m very, very proud of them.”


News of theWeek


Sgt. Brown fears for the future of the department, believing many of the rank and file are close to quitting because they’re frustrated by a boss who’s more interested in rubbing elbows with politicians and celebrities than making sure his people are satisfied and safe in their jobs. “We’re doing more with less, but what the men and women want to see is a sheriff making decisions not for politics but for mission,” she said. “Then it makes sense for them.” Sgt. Brown would rely more on her executive staff and other experts to inform her decisions. “The difference between Bill Brown and I [sic] is that he’s never trusted his staff and allowed them to do their jobs,” she explained, arguing she’s the right “puzzle piece” to get the department moving in the right direction again.“I’m not running out of narcissism or some self-motivated issue,” she explained. “I’m doing this for the department and the county, and I don’t think anybody would question that.” Sheriff Brown said that morale, while a little low, isn’t so dire and that the current angst is

wrath was unfairly focused, Sheriff Brown said. “Anger should be directed at Wall Street and the corporate and personal greed that torpedoed us and the world economy,” he said,“not the people

who put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve.” The sheriff believes there will be disgruntled people in any large organization, and some may think they can do a better job than the boss. “I have to make decisions that are unpopular,” he said. “You’ll always have a few people who will complain and whine, but it’s a minority.” Some of the dissatisfaction may come from a misunderstanding of roles, he theorized. “The reality is, the sheriff today is not like the sheriff of yesteryear,” he explained. “I don’t sit at my desk and have everything that happens in the organization run past me and make a decision yea or nay.” He believes his modern role “is really to go out and get resources for the organization … to advocate for public policy that would help us and oppose proposed legislation that would hurt us.” He wished he could spend more time with his troops, but with a department spread over 28 work sites throughout 2,300 square miles of county, Sheriff Brown admitted,“The simple fact of the matter is I can’t be everywhere at once.” Of his opponent, the sheriff stayed relatively mum.“I admire Sandra’s ambition, tenacity, and respect her ability to run for the office,” he said. “But I’m not going to say anything negative about her. I’m not going to tarnish her badge so I can shine mine.” He believes their respective qualifications speak for themselves.“I encourage people to research us and make their choice,” he said.“You also might look at how endorsements ■ have lined up.”

Give him family and friends, the morning paper, good food, a job he truly loved, the nightly news on rewind and rousing political debates (he was always right), and Jeff Salt was a happy man. He was a problem solver and could fix nearly anything using just what he had on hand, without having to make a trip (other than perhaps the “bone yard”) to make a purchase. He had a passion for anything to do with the water, mountain biking and hiking. He loved the company of family and friends, good conversation and sharing stories of his childhood in New Jersey. He found tremendous satisfaction in the job he held for  years at Goleta Sanitary District, being referred to as their “fearless leader” by people he loved and respected, achieving so much there and motivating others to do the same. He loved his two daughters, Danielle and Melissa more than life and was so very proud of them, as well as his wife of  years, Cathy, who stood beside him through thick and thin. Dependable, lovable (but stubborn), a great father and husband, a forever friend - Jeff was simply put, a very

good man. He is much loved and will be sorely missed. Jeff was predeceased by his parents and two brothers. He leaves behind one brother and three sisters, their families, numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncle. A service will be held back East at a later date. Join with us in a celebration of his life on Saturday, May th, : p.m., Trinity Episcopal Church at State & Micheltorena in Santa Barbara, with sharing of stories to follow at East Beach Picnic Area #, closest to volleyball and parking lot.

District 2


ast week’s cover story,“The Battle for nd District” [], left me with several questions for Roger Aceves. If he calls himself a “lifelong Democrat,” then why is he trying to unseat an incumbent Democrat? And the party’s decision not to support him “provided a lot of motivation”? And now I read that he accepts money from oil companies and developers. Sure, politicians change parties, but I have a problem with those who do not admit that their affiliation has changed. And exactly how has Janet Wolf left the county needing better financial management? The county has a budget surplus and enjoys an AA+ bond rating, thanks in large part to strong fiscal management led by Wolf. If Aceves thinks he’ll do a better job with Measure M in place, I’d like to know how. Last, why does Aceves lack endorsements from his Goleta City Council colleagues? Three support Wolf loud and clear. And why are there no supporters listed on his campaign mailings? What is he afraid of? — Ruth Johnson, S.B.

Sheriff Bill Brown, Yes


learly, after April 16’s League of Women Voters candidates’ forum, the voters of Santa Barbara County have only one choice — to reelect Bill Brown for County Sheriff. When asked about department morale, Bill Brown said morale, like a stream, ebbs and flows depending on current staffing levels, budget allocations, and workload. Can he do a better job at improving staff morale? Absolutely, and he will. With all that Bill Brown has accomplished in the last seven and a half years, is now the time to elect a candidate with no executive leadership skills, very limited experience with no formal education, and whose response to a question about the county’s Measure M was to “let the voters figure it out”? I don’t think so. Bill Brown has been tempered by major wildfires, has shown levelheaded courage during unprecedented bud-

get cuts and staff reductions, continues to work hard to solve our county’s jail inmate problems, and is ready to make the tough decisions. His “no frills” approach and proven commitment makes him our best and only choice to lead the men and women of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff ’s department. — Richard Rojas Sr., Goleta

Trains, Trains, Trains


ith  Highway construction likely to last for over a decade, the obvious solution is waiting at the station. Ventura to Goleta commuter rail is needed NOW! Trains contribute far fewer greenhouse gases than auto and air travel; train travel per passenger mile is 30 percent more efficient than by auto. And Santa Barbarans find road and rail to be of equal value: During the campaign for Measure A — a transportation measure — a commuter rail solution polled equally with  widening. Union Pacific (UP) has been reluctant to permit additional passenger trains on the corridor between Oxnard and Goleta; however, a Draft EIR is ongoing for oil trains UP wants to run from the north to Nipomo. That’s within the Los Angeles/San Diego/San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Corridor. County representatives to LOSSAN should ask that if UP would like to operate oil trains within our region, then it should also allow commuter trains to operate between Oxnard and Goleta. Besides, trains are fun to ride! In fact, National Train Day takes place this Saturday, May 10, 9 a.m.-noon, at Santa Barbara’s Amtrak station. The Surfliner boards at 9:20 — with Fresco cookie-decorating for kids — and returns from Carpinteria to S.B. at 10:15. At 10:30, a press conference on transportation commences with elected officials on hand. Hope to see you there! — Dennis Story, Director, Rail Passenger Assoc. of CA

Montanan Hunts S.B. $$$

SNOWBIRD: Why, a reader asks, would someone running for Congress in Montana be campaigning in Santa Barbara? And posting campaign signs around town? I couldn’t reach Ryan Zinke, a Republican running for Montana’s sole Congressional seat, but I did learn that Hope Ranch officials took down his signs posted after a fundraiser there. No permit, and you know how Republicans hate getting permits. I spotted some signs at the harbor, too. It seems that Zinke is something of a character up there, having termed former secretary of state Hillary Clinton the “anti-Christ.” He later took it back, sort of, as a bit “too harsh.” Whether he made the same accusation at the Hope Ranch affair, I don’t know. According to Santa Barbarans I’ve talked to, Zinke gets his Santa Barbara credentials by being married to the daughter of Fred Hand, Lolita. Hand was a well-known Santa Barbara businessman in the ’60s and has a street named after him. Zinke and his wife have three children. How much time they spend in Santa Barbara isn’t clear. Zinke, 52, a former Navy SEAL who retired in 2008, is an ex-Montana state senator, loser in a race for lieutenant governor, and under fire for questionable use of a fundraising super PAC. According to the Montana Missoulian, he raised more money than any other House candidate through December 31, much of it

from executives and employees associated with billionaire William P. Foley II’s Florida-based Fidelity National Financial. Foley is a part-time Montana resident and former Santa Barbaran with extensive grape fields in the Santa Ynez Valley. In 2011, Zinke voted for a medical marijuana bill that became law over then-governor Brian Schweitzer’s veto. International Business Times headlined a story about Zinke’s 2012 anti-Obama PAC “The Navy SEAL Who Hates the President.” The Billings Gazette reports that two groups have filed a Federal Election Commission complaint that Zinke violated the law by his too-creative use of the PAC. According to Mother Jones magazine, Zinke raised more than $100,000. But when Obama won reelection, Zinke quit the PAC, handed over control to another SEAL (wink and a nod), announced his House campaign, and used the PAC to raise campaign funds. The issue seems to be uncharted waters, and the complaint remains unresolved. Zinke denies doing anything wrong. Intelligent Discontent, a Montana blog, echoes other claims that Zinke left the SEALS “under suspicion of ethics violations.” “There were ethics issues around his travel,” a former Navy SEAL and senior Defense Department official told the blog BuzzFeed’s Michael Hastings. “He was using government travel to visit his home in Montana. He got caught. That’s

why he left the SEALs.” According to Intelligent Discontent, “Zinke did not contest the allegation, but suggested that the travel dispute is hardly a major blot on his service record.” Zinke said he was just trying to set up SEAL training in Montana.

A DIME A TREE: Former Santa Barbara mayor

Hal Conklin dropped by The Santa Barbara Independent’s Earth Day booth, talking about a nonprofit he’s working with. Eden Projects has planted more than 72 million trees in Haiti, Madagascar, and Ethiopia, Conklin told me. He’s an Eden boardmember. The carefully managed nonprofit hires villagers to plant trees at a cost of 10 cents each, “reduces extreme poverty and restores healthy forests,” according to It also takes measures to ensure that the seedlings aren’t gobbled up by grazing creatures or cut down when they grow. I clicked on the website, and Sue and I donated $10 each — which, at the rate of a dime a tree, should result in 200 new trees growing in the earth. You can also arrange for a monthly donation. ORANGE PEEL TIRES: So I rolled into the shop,

bought two new tires, and rolled out on orange peel treads. True, U.S.-made Yokohama brand tires use orange peels to replace some of the petroleum oil normally used in the manufacture. Yokohama claims they’re better tires, too.

FOLLOW THE MONEY: Candidate yard signs cause biennial blight, but protests arose when a candidate running for office in Montana posted his in Hope Ranch.

(No, they don’t smell like orange juice when they get hot or leave funny marks on the road, either.) BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: No, nothing to do with any election campaign, but Jean Cocteau’s classic 1946 film, which has been given new life with Philip Glass’s gorgeous score. Which meant for a magical evening at the Granada, with the film shown (the soundtrack removed) and the Philip Glass Ensemble performing live onstage and accompanied by singers taking the roles of the actors.

STAR ATHLETES Meet High School Champions Stamatia Scarvelis and Shane Hauschild by John Zant photos by Paul Wellman


hane Hauschild and Stamatia Scarvelis may move on to greater things, but what they have done during their high school years has secured their legacy as two of the best athletes to come out of Santa Barbara and Goleta. Hauschild has a water polo scholarship to UCSB and also excels in volleyball, leading San Marcos to its first league championship in 12 years. The UCLA-bound Scarvelis is a two-time state champion in the girls’ shot put. In her last meet at Dos Pueblos, she achieved the second longest throw in state history. They share a love of ice cream, and neither is inclined to be boastful.



tamatia Scarvelis, a senior track-and-field athlete at Dos Pueblos High School, stands out in so many ways:

She represents an evolution in athletics, having come from Greek ancestry, which brings to mind the ancient Olympics, but women did not compete in those games.  She has won back-to-back California State championships in the girls’ shot put, and she’ll be going for a third title in June.  She is the defending U.S.A. Junior (under 20 years old) national champion and PanAmerican Junior champion in the shot put. She aims to compete in the World Junior 

Championships in July.  She is a protégé of Ramona Pagel, a fourtime Olympian who held the American record in the shot put for 25 years. Kent Pagel, who was his wife’s coach, has been guiding Scarvelis’s training. Ramona, the director of fitness at Naval Base Ventura County, gives her advice.  In her last dual meet, she improved her personal record in the shot put to 539¼, the second longest in California high school history.  Although the discus throw is not her dominant event, she recorded the longest throw (1727) in the nation this year at the Arcadia Invitational. CONT’D P. 28 >>>



hane Hauschild’s future looks mighty promising to UCSB sports fans, who see him as a rifle-armed scorer for the Gaucho water polo team and possibly doubling as a terminator at the net for the volleyball team. But there was just one thing on the 65 San Marcos High senior’s mind two weeks ago — how to dig out of a hole against the Santa Barbara Dons, the nine-time defending volleyball champions of the Channel League. The match at the Santa Barbara gym was tied at one set apiece, and the Dons were ahead, 22-18, in the third set. “One point at a time,” Hauschild

thought. He happened to be at the net in the rotation of players, and setter Christian Widner kept going to him. Hauschild went on a killing spree, pounding balls to the floor and off the body parts of the Dons, and the Royals won the set, 25-23. Now momentum was on the visitors’ side, but the Dons could get it right back in game four. It was close all the way. After it got to 24-24, both teams fought to avoid the two-point gap that would spell defeat. The score was tied at 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30. Then Hauschild had the final say. He ripped the ball for two consecutive points — his 29th and 30th kills of the match — and with their four-set CONT’D P. 30 >>> may 8, 2014

She has a scholarship awaiting her at UCLA, where her brother Nicholas is a sophomore thrower.  When fellow Dos Pueblos athlete Jon Dickinson asked her to be his prom date, he went to great lengths. He gave her a ride along Cathedral Oaks Road, where he had the cars of eight friends lined up with letters painted on the rear windshields: S-TA-M — P-R-O-M?

“That was completely unexpected,” FAR-FLUNG: At  and  pounds, she's not huge, she said.“Of course, I but “she’s got quick-twitch muscles. Speed is a factor said yes.” that compensates for size,” said trainer Kent Pagel. The nice thing about Scarvelis is that she does not expect to be treated differently than her schoolmates. That trait developed early in her life, when she was just trying to keep up with the boys (Nicholas and Steven, a decathlete at Arizona). “They are a wonderful family, kind people, inviting people,” said Fr. Constantine Zozos, a Greek Orthodox priest who baptized Scarvelis (she is named after the mother of her father, George Scarvelis).“She is not a selfish athlete. She is a genuine, good person.” Fr. Constantine was among a group of family and fans watching Scarvelis compete in the recent Santa Barbara County Championships at Carpinteria High. While she was waiting for her flight in the discus throw, she walked over to her mother, Alexandra Scarvelis, and whispered apologetically that she wouldn’t be socializing until the meet was over.

LOOKING TO THE HORIZON: Although the discus throw is not her dominant event — the shot put is — she recorded the longest throw in the nation this year. After graduating from Dos Pueblos this June, Scarvelis will head to UCLA in the fall on a track-and-field scholarship. “She is getting nostalgic about her high school competitions,” Alexandra said.“This is her last county meet.” That morning, Scarvelis had traveled to Carpinteria in the team bus.“She wanted to be with her team,” Dos Pueblos coach Chris Mollkoy said.“She doesn’t get any special treatment.” Scarvelis seemed to be moving a bit gingerly as she paced around the field. “Her legs are sore,” Alexandra said.“Kent has been beating her up.” Pagel confirmed that Scarvelis has been going through a heavy training phase in the weight room. The idea is to build up her strength so she can peak in the June and July championships. Still, she wanted to put on a good show.“She hates to not do well,” said Dickinson, her training partner. “She is very aware of other people’s feelings,” Pagel said. “She knows people like to see her do well, and she wants them to know that they help her.” She wanted to break the county records, having missed the meet last year because of a conflict with the Mt. SAC Relays. On her first throw, Scarvelis launched the discus high into the air, and a strong wind knocked it down in the 140-foot range. She stepped out of the ring, a foul, on another attempt.“Stam cares; I can see the smoke coming out of her nose,” her mother said. Scarvelis’s last throw fluttered through the wind and landed at 1561.“It was ugly,” Pagel said — but it broke the county meet record of 1536 that was set in 1983. It was the same thing in the shot put. Struggling to find her groove, Scarvelis failed to break 50 feet for the only time this year. But her mark of 498½ was a new meet record by more than seven feet. She was just as happy about the performance of Dickinson. After a year of training with her, he had become the county boys champion in the shot put and discus. Their weight room is the Scarvelis garage. “My parents bought the equipment for Nicholas his junior year,” Scarvelis said. “It’s become a real good gym. We have it decorated with American and Greek flags and a UCLA banner.” Some serious lifting goes on there, though Scarvelis likes to make it fun, too.“I pick on her and tell her what a pain in the butt she is,” Pagel said.“She can be very serious, very focused, and very goofy at the

same time. I have a video of her dancing, then she does a 400-pound squat.” She is not huge — some 58 and 175-180 pounds — but Pagel said, “She’s got quick-twitch muscles. Speed is a factor that compensates for size. She has a wonderful intrinsic sense of what to do.” Scarvelis said she was “incredibly sore” from her workouts the past few weeks after she was through with the major invitational meets. “The intention is not to peak before the CIF meets,” she said. Among her lifts were single-leg squats.“They work on muscle stability and balance,” she said.“You feel it in the thighs, hips, and butt.” She was looking forward to last Thursday’s dual meet between San Marcos and Dos Pueblos. “It’ll be the last time I’ll ever compete at DP,” she said. “Besides my throws, I’ll try to watch as many events as I can. It’ll be sad.” School spirit is a powerful force. On her very first attempt, the four-kilogram (8-pound, 13-ounce) shot exploded out of Scarvelis’s hand.“I knew it was going far,” she said. “It felt pretty easy.” The throw measured 539¾, a new personal best. The only better mark by a California high school girl is the state record of 549¾, set by Anna Jelmini of Shafter in 2009. Scarvelis wrapped up her prep dual-meet career with a discus toss of 1492. Her last prep competition in her hometown will be the Channel League Finals at San Marcos, Friday, May 9, starting at 4 p.m. “I’m moving on to bigger things,” she said. Several big things will be in her way soon. There’s the CIF Division  shot-put record of 537¾, set by Natalie Kaaiawahia of Fullerton in 1983, and the discus record of 1678, set by Candy Roberts of Don Lugo in 1989. Then there’s Jelmini’s state shot-put record. Going into this year, the national record was Texan Michelle Carter’s mark of 5410¾ in 2003. But at last month’s South Carolina Taco Bell Classic, Raven Saunders of Burke High in Charleston pushed it way out to 568¼. She may meet up with Scarvelis at the Junior Nationals. Maybe Scarvelis will resort to her secret dietary weapon, revealed by Dickinson.“She loves eating vanilla ice cream with Oreos that she crushes herself,” he said. It’s just another way for her to achieve something better, she explained: “The cookies are fresher than they are in cookies-and-cream.” ■

victory, 32-30 in the fourth, the Royals claimed the league championship. “Shane’s will carried us through it,” San Marcos coach Roger Kuntz said. He described the one-two combination of Hauschild and Baker Johnson, the team’s next most lethal hitter, as “thunder and lightning.” San Marcos finished the regular season with a 25-3 record and is the No. –ranked team in CIF Division . The Royals will open the play-offs at their gym, the Thunderhut, on Tuesday, May 13. A few days after their epic victory over Santa Barbara, Hauschild still basked in the glow. He was named the most valuable player in the league a year ago, but winning the championship — the Royals’ first in 12 years — especially in the way they won it, was deeply satisfying. “That kind of game was fun,” he said. “I’d like to say it would be just as good a time if they had won, but it would kind of suck.” (The Dons did not take it too badly. Santa Barbara’s Jasper Rhodes described the last five points of the last game as “the most energetic, inspirational time of my life” and said he’d always remember the time he blocked Hauschild.) “It’s been a really, really good senior year,” Hauschild said.“The volleyball team won two big tournaments, and we got Coach Kuntz his 300th win in his last season. Our water polo team beat Santa Barbara twice for the first time in 20 years, and we won a CIF game.” Water polo may be the most important sport in Hauschild’s future. With his long reach and the whip-like action of his arm, he is a scourge of defenders in the pool. He’s gained international experience with the Santa Barbara Water Polo Club. He grabbed the attention of college coaches and was offered scholarships. When it came down to UCSB or Long Beach State, his father’s alma mater, he chose the Gauchos. “Everybody that doesn’t live here wants to come here,” he said. “We’re excited to have Shane,” UCSB coach Wolf Wigo said.“He’s tall and long. Physically, he has all the characteristics you want. He has a really good shot. His upside is great. He tried a lot of sports growing up and didn’t start water polo super young.” Jeff Ashton, the San Marcos water polo coach, went as far as saying, “I don’t think there’s more than five or 10 guys in the country who can shoot the ball like him.” But while Hauschild is physically gifted, Ashton said,“That’s not why he’s so good. People don’t know the work he puts in. He missed maybe one practice in four years. He put a gash in his leg skateboarding. He wasn’t supposed to be in the water. He bound it up with athletic tape and duct tape and made the practice. He’s a coach’s son [Dwayne Hauschild is an assistant San Marcos volleyball coach], and he knows what’s important.” Ashton said he had discussions with Kuntz over concerns that they were leaning so hard on Hauschild, the star of both teams for several years.“Not many kids could handle it,” Ashton said, but this kid is a

DOUBLE TROUBLE: “Water polo is my priority, but I might try to play volleyball at UCSB, too,” said Shane Hauschild of his athletic plans for university this fall. At , the San Marcos High senior is a rifle-armed scorer in water polo and an ace spiker for the school’s volleyball team, which won the Channel League championship this year. man-child. “He has a tremendous amount of maturity for an 18-year-old guy,” Kuntz said. “He has a great heart for any game that he’s playing and a frame that anybody would die for.” Because Hauschild has become so skilled in volleyball —“he’s our best passer, our best hitter, our best blocker, and one of our two best setters”— Kuntz had UCSB coach Rick McLaughlin take a look at him.“He saw Shane warming up for a match, spiking balls that bounced up to the ceiling, and Rick said,‘We’ve got to work something out.’ ” “Water polo is my priority, but I might try to play volleyball at UCSB, too, if I can handle the academics,” Hauschild said. He said his grade-point average is 3.8. (With a team GPA of 3.61, the boys’ volleyball squad is one of six San Marcos teams that are CIF academic champions.) His mentality is more suited to water polo, Hauschild suggested.“I don’t like to come across as cocky,” he said. “There was a picture in the paper of me celebrating after a point in volleyball. I got a ton of crap from my water polo friends. You don’t have energy to waste after you score in water polo. You have to go play defense. You have

to stay cool and collected and go on to the next play. “I can’t stand cocky people,” he continued.“I can’t stand people who talk about how great they are. It’s extremely annoying to hear trash talk in volleyball. There’s a net between you. There’s no trash talking in water polo, because you can take care of it. But one time, we were beating a team really bad, and they threw a kid in at the end of the game. Every stroke, he was throwing a punch at me. He missed, but then he caught me and opened a cut above my eyebrow. I couldn’t do anything about it because the game ended 20 seconds later. He was about half my size, and he was bragging about it. I’m still pissed.” Hauschild will be more dangerous to mess with in the future. He expects his body to fill out in college. “I just broke 200 pounds,” he said.“When I get home, I pretty much eat until I go to sleep. I eat tons of ice cream. No bowls. I’ll eat a whole carton in one sitting. My mom hates it. I make the excuse I’m using fewer dishes.” And he’s taking in a lot of calories, but that’s no problem for this two-sport dynamo. ■

Sea Monsters at SBMM


lthough the world’s oceans have been explored in ways early sailors could never have imagined, there are still vast amounts of the deep blue where no human has yet ventured. And it’s within these dark depths that sea monsters live. That’s my theory ianyway — and something that medieved as proved by the eval and Renaissance folks also believed, illustrative cartography of those times. In his recently published book Sea Monsters on Medieval and Renaissance Maps, Chet Van Duzer offers readers a fascinating history of the evolution of unexplained ocean critters as they were perceived hundreds of years ago. “The sea monsters depicted on maps can offer signicant insights into the sources, inuences, and methods of the cartographers who drew or painted them,” explains Van Duzer in the introduction to Sea Monsters. “It is important to keep in mind that a number of infrequently seen or large sea creatures — whales and walruses, for example … were considered sea monsters in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.” The illustrations are gorgeous to look at and fancifully rendered as hybrids of land creatures, such as the sea dog, the sea lion, and the sea pig. “These sea monsters, whether they are depicted swimming vigorously, gamboling amid the waves, attacking ships, or simply displaying themselves for our appreciation, are one of the most visually engaging elements on these maps,” writes Van Duzer. And he is — Michelle Drown absolutely correct.

Kwan, who was a biology teacher in Korea, came to Santa Barbara four and a half years ago when her husband began doing his post-doc work at UCSB, but will soon have to return to Korea for work. right: “It’s been great to see the reactions on people’s faces when you hand them a free flower,” said Bob Craig while giving away flowers to unsuspecting strangers at the Tuesday Farmers Market on State Street. Craig is the director of marketing for Lotusland and helped to organize the “flower mob,” which is based on the idea of a flash mob and advocates Santa Barbara’s Public Gardens Partnership for the month of May. “We want to promote how wonderful and peaceful it is to be in a garden, especially at the beginning of spring,” added Craig.

Free Skin Cancer Screenings

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, and it is more prevalent in Santa Barbara County at 8.2 percent than in the state, which averages 5.8 percent. As such, Cottage Hospital is offering free skin cancer screenings as well as skin cancer prevention education this weekend. The event, which is sponsored by the Cottage Health System and the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, is aimed at those who do not have access to such medical services. Anyone over 20 years of age is eligible; no appointment is necessary, but the event is first come, first served. Information will be available in both English and Spanish. The screening takes place Saturday, May 10, 9 a.m.-noon, at S.B. Cottage Hospital, 400 West Pueblo Street. For more information, call (855) 247-9355. — Mckinley Krongaus

Do You Know

1 Free Oak Seedlings

The Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau Oak Tree Education Program is providing oak seedlings free to any resident of the county. After collecting acorns from around the county and performing float tests to determine which were healthy for planting, program coordinator Robyn Moon dispersed them across the county to be planted at schools. Students in agriculture and horticulture classes at Cabrillo, Lompoc, and Santa Ynez high schools spent the past six months planting and tending to the 4,000 acorns; they have now grown to six-inch-tall seedlings that are prime for planting. There are two species of oaks available: valley and coast live. There are several hundred valley oaks available now, and coast live oaks will be available mid-May. Both need about 15 feet of land per plant. For more information, contact the S.B. County Farm Bureau at 688-7479 or — MK

n their gennnes, eral outlines, the two n brothers in Jhumpa Lahiri’s new novel seem to come straightt from a folktale. Subhash, the nt, older, is diffident, cautious, studious. Udayan, their parents’ favorite, is charming, irascible, daring.. Coming of age in the late 1960s, the boys take different paths. Udayan is caught up in the Maoist Naxalite rebellion that swept through parts of India, while Subhash heads for Rhode Island to study oceanography. The lowland that gives the book its title is a stretch of marsh behind the brothers’ Calcutta home. It turns into a trash-strewn pond during monsoon season, “thick with water hyacinth ... Green in contrast to the blue of the sky.” It is here that the book’s central event takes place: the murder of Udayan. Home for his brother’s funeral, Subhash both lusts after and feels pity for Udayan’s pregnant wife, Gauri, who is trapped with her unsympathetic in-laws. He offers to marry her if she will agree to let him raise the child as his own. Desperate to leave the house in which she is daily reminded of her husband’s killing, Gauri agrees. To this point, the novel has seemed to be primarily about an episode in India’s political life that will be unfamiliar to most Americans. The book then gradually morphs into a mediation on love, family, and duty, and even as the pace of external events slows, the narrative heats up. Subhash is a wonderful father to Bela, Gauri’s daughter, taking her to the seashore, listening attentively to her small problems. Gauri, though, becomes increasingly frantic to leave this family of which she realizes she wants no part. She earns her PhD in philosophy, and then one day she is gone, taking a job at a university in California. Gauri makes no attempt to see her daughter, and the sadness of that abandonment radiates throughout the rest of the novel as Bela grows up and grows away from her father. Although its characters are Indian, the book is the quintessential American story of a broken home. Despite its occasionally dramatic moments, The Lowland is, like Subhash, a book of muted feelings. Indeed, it may take readers a while before they notice Lahiri’s magic: how her condent, carefully crafted prose moves us so effortlessly into the minds of her characters. Granted, The Lowland’s structure is far from streamlined, but the pleasure of reading Lahiri, who has quietly become one of America’s best writers, surely compensates for any deciencies of plot. With her fourth book, she is now one of those rare authors whose every publication is an event worth anticipating — — David Starkey and celebrating.



The Sorrows of Family




f anyone can be christened the father of architectural planning in Santa Barbara, it would be Bernhard Hoffmann (pictured). Upon his arrival in 1919, Hoffmann embarked upon a decade of civic involvement that would go far in transforming Santa Barbara’s urban landscape. Born in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, in 1874, Hoffmann graduated from Cornell University in 1895 in electrical engineering. In 1919, his daughter, Margaret, was diagnosed with diabetes, which, in those days, was often fatal. Hoffmann heard of the work of Dr. Nathaniel Bowditch Potter and his clinic in Santa Barbara. Upon their arrival here, the family learned that Potter was dying, but Margaret came under the care of Dr. W.D. Sansum, one of the primary developers of insulin. She responded readily to treatment. In 1921, De la Guerra family members worked out an arrangement with Hoffmann to restore Casa de la Guerra. He worked closely with architects James Osborne Craig and Craig’s wife, Mary, to develop El Paseo. This complex of retail and ofce space surrounding the Casa became the centerpiece to give Santa Barbara a unied architectural look — what Hoffmann referred to as the “City in Spain.” Hoffmann became chair of the Plans and Planting branch of the Community Arts Association, one of the most inuential civic agencies of the 1920s. Under his watchful eye, the present city hall was constructed and De la Guerra Plaza made over. During this period, Hoffmann commissioned George Washington Smith, and later Carleton Winslow, to design a series of studios around the historic Lugo adobe on East De la Guerra Street, the complex today known as Meridian Studios. Hoffmann also pushed for systematic planning efforts. The city adop ad oppte tedd its its rst rst building-zone buil bu ildi ding ng-zon ng onee ordinance or adopted in the spring of 1924. A

year later, again with Hoffmann’s support and cooperation, the city adopted its rst building codes. These were passed just one month before the earthquake of June 1925. Hoffmann then plunged into postquake restoration and recovery. He was appointed chair of the Architectural Advisory Committee, which raised private funds to hire experts in the building trades and to bring in heavy equipment to expedite the rebuilding of the city. He served as chair of the Architectural Board of Review, an advisory body that passed judgment on the architectural designs of new buildings. This board was the forerunner of the permanent board, founded in 1947. Finally, he served on the Santa Barbara Relief Fund Committee, charged with the raising of monies and its distribution to rebuild and revitalize the city. A major task of the committee was to raise funds to restore the heavily damaged mission. In 1927, Hoffmann stepped down as chair of the Plans and Planting Committee, and he and his wife began dividing their time between Santa Barbara and Stockbridge. Bernhard Hoffmann died in Stockbridge in July1949. His civic leadership was vital in the planning process that gave Santa Barbara that “look” with which we are so familiar today.

f you’ve ever spoken to fans of Santa Barbara’s burgeoning cocktail scene, chances are they’ve referred you to Trattoria Vittoria (30 E. Victoria St., 962-5014, to see Ivo Peshev, the 27-year-old Bulgarian bottle thrower who is taking the international “bartending flair” circuit by storm. “In Bulgaria, you start going to bars at 15-16 years old,” explained Peshev, who moved to America from the Bulgarian capital of Sofia when he was 20. “Flair is huge in Bulgaria. I’ll never forget the first time I saw someone do flair. I was hooked.” Since starting his flair career, Peshev has placed first, second, or third in more than 40 California competitions, including a prestigious first place at an international event in Norco last fall. “I’m very competitive, but that’s not why I do flair,” he said. “I love it if I can make someone’s day better. Everything I do is for them.” Peshev also prides himself on the relationships he creates from great service, and it’s very rare to find an open spot at the Trattoria Vittoria bar from Wednesday-Saturday after his shift starts at 5 p.m. If you can, snag the corner seat and order the prime rib ravioli. He recently answered a few more of my questions: I see you have “Balance” tattooed across your forearm. How do you balance being the star and the server when you work? I try to provide genuine service to my patrons. That doesn’t mean necessarily flipping bottles in front of everyone, but making great drinks, having personality behind the bar, and being attentive and fast enough to keep up with it all. I’m here to make it easier to enjoy our great food and drinks. What’s your favorite drink? Lagavulin 16-year-old Scotch with a nice cigar. What’s your favorite drink to make? Actually, it’s a cosmopolitan, only because it was the first drink ever ordered after flair school and I was so excited I knew how to make it. I was 16 years old. — Patrick Reynolds

tUnE-yArDs NIKKI NACK When we first met tUnE-yArDs back in 2009, it was all about making a lot out of a little. As a debut, BiRd-BrAiNs pushed the limits of lo-fi recording, looping syncopated drums and ukulele in ways that were pop-centric, yet jarringly distinctive. Now, five years and one widely successful album later, we remeet tUnE-yArDs for Nikki Nack. Like its predecessors, Nikki Nack is immediately recognizable as tUnE-yArDs; the drums are off-kilter and glaringly non-Western; the vocals, androgynous and boisterous; the lyrics, catchy yet structurally akimbo. But from there, the album takes a hard left turn. In place of her signature ukulele loops, mastermind Merrill Garbus turned to the



ith 65 years and 135 dances under his belt, Jerry Pearson could easily rest on his laurels. Instead, the UCSB dance professor and former director of Santa Barbara Dance Theater is pushing forward and preparing to present his most personal work to date. Next Thursday, May 15, Pearson returns to the Lobero Theatre for Body of Work, a one-man performance piece that finds the choreographer reflecting on his life journey as an artist. Begun as a retrospective review for his UCSB high-ups, Body of Work quickly morphed from a functional tool to a fully-staged performance piece, complete with video, music, dance, and spoken-word elements. Earlier this year, Pearson traveled overseas to present Body of Work for audiences in Ireland, England, and New Zealand. Still, he says, this week’s show at the Lobero is a major milestone for the piece. “I’m looking forward to being able to fill a theater that’s a little bit bigger,” said Pearson. “It’s a very interesting part of performing to me, that ability to expand into a space. It’s a very satisfying feeling when the size of one’s passion for something can properly fill a venue. And when you can do the larger ones, it feels good.”





Keb’ Mo’

“If the blues disappears, then it’s supposed to,” said Keb’ Mo’, the stage name of blues innovator Kevin Moore, speaking to us via phone last week. “I know a lot of people are [worried], though.” Moore is a lover of all music, as his 2011 R&B record The Reflection proves, but he isn’t worried, because the music in and of itself isn’t really the point anymore. “It’s for the people,” said Moore. “It tells people’s stories — from Appalachia all the way down to the Louisiana Delta.” Working as a professional musician for nearly half a century, Moore has learned firsthand how music can inspire and relate to an audience. “These songs are about people who are trying to better themselves. It’s about keeping your mind on prosperity.” No matter your current ailment — heartache, failure, tragedy, or sickness — the blues has always had imparted a sense of empathy. With his latest, BLUESAmericana, Moore sought to focus the songs on subjects that speak to everyday worries — things like regret, pride, and romantic complexities. Musically, BLUESAmericana seems an appropriate product from an artist in Keb’ Mo’s position, both in terms of his career and within the culture. It may lack the unrefined, gritty edge that we tend to associate with the blues, but that doesn’t make it any less earnest. In fact, it’s that permeating sincerity that tends to carry over from the project’s original concept: an intimate, acoustic, manand-his-guitar record. “I much prefer collaborating,” says Moore, when I ask whether he anticipated drifting so far from his original goal. “I didn’t used to like to drive, but now I only like to drive,” he went on, adding that he’s as confident musically now as he ever has been. “I just rather work around other people.” It seems that it’s always been about the people for Moore. He’s the three-time Grammy winner who’s working harder than ever to make something for us to live with. Keb’ Mo’ headlines the Lobero Theatre ( E. Canon Perdido St.) on Tuesday, May 13, at 8 p.m. Call 963-0761 or visit for tickets and info. — Jake Blair



As for what he hopes attendees take away from the show, Pearson is quick to offer up the universal nature of Body’s message. “It’s about questioning and understanding what ‘home’ means, and finding that resting point,” he said.“I think there’s an aspect of that core passion — that there’s a certain voice that wants to be heard in all of us. The first memory I have of that voice was when I was 12 and I would pretend I was conducting Beethoven’s symphonies. I would get so involved with the movement of it that I would jump up on the couch or roll on the floor. I was dancing, and I didn’t know I was dancing. That idea of generating computer, injecting her rambunctious musings with a wall of percussion that’s dancier than anything she’s made to date. Inspired by Garbus’s recent trip to Haiti, and fueled by a year of studying Haitian dance and drumming in her hometown of Oakland, Nikki Nack seems to buzz with a nervous energy; the bass is driving and heavy-handed but also tightly wound, resulting in a sound that sounds both foreign and recognizably urban. And the juxtapositions don’t end there. Lyrically, Nikki Nack dips into the social (“Stop That Man,” “Left Behind”) and women’s issues (“Real

Thing,” “Manchild”) that Garbus has long dealt with, but sonically it calls to mind the children’s shows of the singer’s youth. (Mid-album interlude “Why Do We Dine on the Tots?” frames cannibalism in a three-minute spoken-word fable.) Odd? Yes. But aided by Garbus’s newfound arsenal of digital drum machines, Nikki Nack is easily her most accessible creation to date, as well as a record that handsomely rewards its listeners with each repeat visit. — AC

Marinella Senatore Invites the Viewer into Her Art


by Charles Donelan

hen Building Communities opens this weekend at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB), what’s on the walls will only be a small part of what the artist will create by being there. In addition to documentation of a number of her previous projects, Italian artist Marinella Senatore will display three installations designed to invite ongoing participation from members of the Santa Barbara community. In the entryway of the gallery space, Senatore has put together something she calls “Movie Set.” The apparatus includes moveable walls, mirrors, dance bars, cinema lighting, and a professionalgrade movie camera. Visitors to the museum may book time in the studio through the MCASB website and then use it as an open platform for creating original short films. Across the room from this Little Hollywood, there’s “The School of Narrative Dance,” a dance floor and several video monitors installed to give visitors the opportunity to study a sequence of suggested movements on the video screens and then take turns trying them out on the dance floor. Finally, in the main gallery space, a writing workshop area hosts participants who have proposed stories for eventual production and who must come to the gallery in order to collaborate on them with the artist. Interspersed among these community workstations, there will be multiple examples of Senatore’s work from all over the world: She’s created pieces in Spain, Great Britain, Ireland, and New York, among other places. The largest of these projects is an opera called Rosas, which included more than 20,000 people. I spoke with Senatore in the MCASB gallery last week as she was supervising the installation.

were a lot of rappers, and they were hard for me to understand at first even though I do speak English. On another project, I worked with over 1000 people who were deaf, and I had to learn sign language for that. But I don’t like to use translators. I don’t really trust that process, so I have to make do with gestures and whatever common language we can come up with on the spot. It’s a challenge, but I feel like you just have to forget it’s a problem and then get to work. How long does it take for you to create a work? In the case of an exhibition like this one, where it’s primarily a retrospective, I can do it with only a few weeks, but when I am creating an entire new project, I need to live in the community for a period of months. It’s not like I can find what I need to know about a place on Wikipedia. I may suggest the form of the final outcome, but my

and that gave me the confidence to operate at a large scale and to be a strong woman in the man’s world of the set. But I think the roots of my approach lie even deeper because in my youth I was a violinist, and I played in symphony orchestras, and that’s what I identify with still: the choral structure of the orchestra, with many players coming together on a single piece. When 90 or 100 musicians are playing the same symphony, they experience the music as a common goal, and that’s what I’m after in my work, that experience. Your practice seems quite removed from that of painters and sculptors, who create valuable objects that are then traded by dealers and collectors. Is that intentional? Well, I’m from a Southern Italian family, and I’m still a very, very working-class girl at heart. This is why I choose to work with these people that I recruit in a location, people who are often inexperienced, rather than to collaborate with expensive professionals as in the traditional film industry, for example. When I am in the middle of a project, I don’t want to feel like I’m the artist or I’m the educated one and you are not. I believe in this idea of a culture that comes from below where the artist is, alongside the other participants as an activator. You know I’ve worked with over 60,000 people at this point, and it has still always been a mutual exchange experience. The people I collaborate with want to see my face; it’s important for their dignity that I acknowledge them directly and in person. With each participant, I am making a deal. The agreement we reach together is just a small part of the overall work, but it’s a very important part.

Rodney King. At UCSB’s MultiCultural Center Theater, Thursday, May 1.


Reviewed by Charles Donelan


Paul Galbraith


n an uncanny prediction of the new media era about to begin, George Holliday’s raw home video of the savage 1991 police beating of Rodney King went viral without the benefit of YouTube, and ONE VOICE: Roger Guenveur Smith performs in before common Rodney King. use of the World Wide Web. Without what became known as “the Rodney King video,” the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of King’s attackers would never have happened. On its own, it is all too likely that King’s victimization would have vanished into the vast shadow of racial injustice, where so much of American violence hides. But this time, that didn’t happen. Instead, through the video, that act of violence against King eventually became a flash point for action on an unprecedented scale. When South Los Angeles went up in flames in the spring of 1992, it became clear that the international media’s compulsive rebroadcast of that footage had affected the course of history. Fans of Spike Lee’s films would recognize the actor Roger Guenveur Smith instantly, and followers of theatrical solo performance wouldn’t think of missing a chance to see him live. His award-winning solo show A Huey P. Newton Story set the pattern for the work he continues to do; concentrated historical research is the basis for Smith’s physically demanding, intensely personal form of theatrical improvisation. Accompanied by some dynamic lighting cues and the densely layered sound collages of his longtime collaborator composer Marc Anthony Thompson, the actor dives headfirst into the murky waters of King’s conflicted life and the deep end of his untimely death. It’s a great performance, rich in detail and nuance, yet as direct as a punch in the face. Rodney King may not be anyone’s idea of a hero, but he’s a protagonist to be reckoned with, and ■ his story as told by Smith resonates profoundly today.

Time Stands Still, presented by the Producing Unit. At Center Stage Theater, Friday, May 2. Shows through Saturday, May 10. Reviewed by Joseph Miller



Experience the technical finesse of celebrated classical guitarist Paul Galbraith in the West Coast premiere of an all Bach and Mozart program.

War-Shattered Lens

e commonly associate warfare PTSD with persons in uniform and secondarily with civilian collateral damage. Donald Margulies’s Time Stands Still considers the impact of the affliction on another class: the war correspondent. Sarah (Ivy Vahanian) is a war photographer who has come home from Iraq to convalesce after nearly losing her life in a roadside bombing. Her husband, James (Bill Egan), is a writer who has been back for months following a psychological breakdown. As one would expect, taking the journalist out of the war does not take the war out of the journalist, and much of the drama involves flare-ups between these two inwardly broken people. Complicating the mix is Richard (Thom Zimerle), the couple’s editor who, while mustering requisite sympathy for the wounded Sarah, is pushing to publish a book that will exploit the fearless photographer’s most recent cache of images. At the same time, he introduces them to his new love interest, Mandy (Janelle Odair), a woman half his age who is sweetly simple and naïve. Margulies mines a great deal of tension from the antipodes of these two women: Sarah is cynical, scarred, world-weary; Mandy is upbeat, unblemished, all puppies-andkittens innocence. But more, the playwright skillfully leads us to underestimate Mandy, only to give her the last word in several key exchanges. With guileless vision, she alone can ask the most penetrating questions. High-voltage encounters not only display admirable acting chops but also underscore the gravity this material wields for director Peter Frisch and these players. Are journalists who put themselves in harm’s way selfless public servants or adrenaline addicts? And for those of us who close the magazine, are ■ we emotionally skillful or selfishly escapist?

BACK TO THE SOURCE Mad Caddies Return with Their First New Album in Seven Years by Aly Comingore

THE GANG’S ALL HERE: The Mad Caddies circa 2014 are (from left) Sascha Lazor, Eduardo Hernandez, Graham Palmer, Dustin Lanker, Keith Douglas, Chuck Robertson, and Todd Rosenberg.


f you can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the Mad Caddies’ inception, well, neither can they. “I look in the mirror some days, and I think,‘Wow, I look like I’m 36 years old,’” laughed Caddies frontman Chuck Robertson.“But I still feel 19 sometimes.” Since meeting in the halls of Santa Ynez High School in the mid-’90s, Robertson and bandmates Sascha Lazor, Todd Rosenberg, Carter Benson, Keith Douglas, and Eduardo Hernandez have toured the world countless times over with their hybridized mix of ska, punk, reggae, and pop and sold more than 400,000 records in the process. This week, the Solvang-born ska punkers release Dirty Rice, their sixth full-length studio album — and first in seven years — on Fat Wreck Chords. Like its predecessors, Dirty Rice thrives on fearless eclecticism. Lead track “Brand New Scar” is a laid-back, head-nod-worthy slice of Cali-bred reggae pop, and it’s followed immediately by mosh pit anthem “Love Myself.” “Making people dance has always been one of the mission statements of the band,” Robertson shared from a San Antonio tour stop this past April.“We’ve always wanted to put on a show where it’s diverse, where people from a lot of different genre backgrounds would enjoy it, and the most important part of that is the rhythmic aspect.” But finding a rhythm for Dirty Rice proved to be a difficult task, at least at the start. Following a two-year-long hiatus, the band regrouped at Fat Wreck Chords’ Motor Studios in 2011 with the intention of writing and recording a new album. “We spent three weeks up there and really hit a wall,” Robertson recalled. “We realized pretty quickly that we’re not a band that can just write a record in a studio in a month. It’s just not the way we operate.” Discouraged, the band returned home with no real plan for what happened next. Years passed, and mini tours popped up here and there, but it wasn’t until early 2013 that the guys finally decided to give it another go. Their meeting place of choice: Rosenberg’s family’s Santa Ynez ranch in the barn-turned-studio space that the Caddies had practiced in as high schoolers. “It was interesting to come back full circle to where the band

had its origins,” said Robertson.“A lot of bands pay big money to go record in these destination studios, where you can sleep there and it’s out in the country. We were just really lucky to have that at our disposal. Over the course of those 14 months, we were able to demo 40 or 50 ideas out for the new record — but we cycled through close to 100 ideas.” After years of rotating-door lineup changes, the current Caddies are boasting all of the band’s original members, as well as a number of longtime players, who helped contribute to much of what would become Dirty Rice. Instead of resting solely on Lazor and Robertson’s writing, the band opened up the table to Rosenberg, who had spent his time off from the band penning commercial jingles. Keyboardist Dustin Lanker and bassist Graham Palmer also offered up songs to the band. “This was the most collaborative Mad Caddies record to date,” said Robertson. “There were a lot of cooks in the kitchen, and sometimes it was a little frustrating, but I think the end result kind of showed the maturity of us getting together and writing a little more collectively.” Mature, sure. But the Caddies were not interested in making their “dad record” and made a concerted effort to set the tone for their big return. “We really wanted to make it a cohesive body of work,” said Robertson. “It’s definitely more mid-tempo [than our other albums]. There are a few fast tunes, but it’s a lot harder to write four-on-the-floor slam punk songs when you’re in your thirties,” he laughed. “Your neck gets sore and you’re like, ‘Let’s just write something that we can kind of groove to.’” And groove it does. Over the course of Dirty Rice’s 13 tracks, the band offers up numerous takes on the chilled-out ska they’ve long championed. A prime example comes by way of “Shot in the Dark,” a Dixieland-imbued mid-album highlight cowritten by NOFX frontman (and Fat Wreck owner) Fat Mike, who visited the band in Santa Ynez last September to lend some guidance. “He came down right before we started tracking for the final cuts and just kind of helped us sort through songs. We produced the record ourselves, so to have an outside source come in was really crucial,” recalled Robertson.“He’s kind of always done that

with our records, though — thrown in his two cents. He’s a g r e a t musician, lyricist, a cultural icon,” Robertson laughed. “But he’s also always been a friend of ours. All of us feel really comfortable around Mike, but we also respect his opinion very highly.” It’s that same friendly reverence that’s helped bond the Caddies for close to two decades, too. And now, with a new record in their hands and a world tour already in the works, it’s no surprise to hear that the band is reflecting and even getting a little nostalgic. “There’s been a lot of talk about the 20-year anniversary, which is next year,” said Robertson.“What do we do? Do we play a show and try to have every band member who’s ever been in the Caddies play a song? I don’t know. We’re going to do something fun, just because I don’t think any of us ever imagined that we’d still be doing it after 20 years.” As for what he thinks it is that’s kept the Caddies going, well, that all comes down to good old-fashioned fun — and a bit of a willful spirit. “I’m just a stubborn, stubborn guy. I don’t want to give it up,” laughed Robertson. “But we all have so much fun when we get together. And the crowds are still there. We have multigenerational fans now. We have teenagers coming out to shows with their parents, who have been watching us for 18 years. If the crowds aren’t going away and people are there and having a good time, we’re just kind of like,‘Why give up? Why stop?’” Dirty Rice comes out Tuesday, May 13, on Fat Wreck Chords. ■ For more on the band, visit may 8, 2014

GET YOUR GROOVE BACK: L.A. electro-funk artist Da¯M-FunK is the brainchild of Damon G. Riddick.


remember when I started lamenting the idea of live electronic music. And maybe that’s part of the problem. Thanks to the slowly encroaching power of technology, it seems that checking out a deejay set has become synonymous with packing hundreds of sweaty coeds into a room so they can watch a dude play a MacBook. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I guess. For the purists, though, these show-going experiences seem like a bit of a scam, or, at the least, kind of a waste of time. Conversely, when an electronic artist comes along who can rise above the laptop game, I tend to get extra enthusiastic about giving props. A few years back, at the now-defunct Jensen’s Mainstage, a young man by the (stage) name Toro y Moi made a strong argument for how computer music can be performed compellingly. And since then, I’ve encountered a handful of similarly minded, electronic-embracing showfolk. (L.A.’s Poolside and Lucky Dragons both come to mind.) So, it’s with an open mind and a wishful ear that I sing the praises of Stones Throw artist Da– M-FunK, who headlines Isla Vista Theater as part of the Something Else concert series this Friday night. DāM-FunK is the musical brainchild of Damon G. Riddick, a native Pasadenan whose off-kilter brand of “funktronica” has wormed its way into the hearts of everyone from DJ/producer Peanut Butter Wolf and hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg to electro-psych act Animal Collective and L.A. rock ’n’ roll eccentric Ariel Pink. Accolades aside, DāM-FunK’s real appeal lies in the balance: Riddick makes thoroughly indebted, decidedly American funk music that’s smart, sarcastic, and unarguably beholden to its inspiration points. (He cites Slave’s Steve Arrington as a major influence.) And if Riddick can bring even a fraction of the sex appeal of his recordings to the live show, well, it’s going to be a night for bumpin’ and grindin’. Want to get down? DāM-FunK headlines Isla Vista Theater ( Embarcadero del Norte) on Friday, May 9, at 9 p.m. Visit for tickets and info.

aybe Spider-Man is at his cinematic best when he’s swinging through the concrete canyons of New York City, but this movie is unmistakably set in a comic-book world. How do we know? Because every time some goofus gets a mind to balance on a ladder over a tank of electric eels while holding a power cable, he doesn’t end up on YouTube. Oh no. He, along with every other crank who ingests mutating formulas in this movie, gains astonishing power and twice the resolve to control the world after ridding it of do-good Spidey. This movie has more origin stories than the Bible. But it works, and it holds our interest, because reality (read: death) is never far from the center of the interweaving plot lines. Throughout Spider-Man , Peter (Andrew Garfield) keeps seeing the ghost of his girlfriend’s father hovering over. (If you had Denis Leary as a bad conscience, you’d likely freak out, too.) Meanwhile, Peter’s quest to unravel the mystery of his parents’ disappearance is nearly overshadowed by the hideous demise of demonic Oscorp’s president (the uncredited Chris Cooper), a death that brings about a series of tragic outcomes and aids in the transformation of the aforementioned street cranks into superbad dudes. The film floats on Gwen (Emma Stone) and Peter’s quirky on-and-off relationship. But it’s Spidey swinging through high-rises, juggling radioactive vials, and saving kids and other hapless creatures that are the real stars of the show. Despite Peter’s appropriately moody family drama, the revelations about his mysterious parents turn out to be the least interesting aspect of this movie (cool, abandoned subway lair notwithstanding). Still, there’s a lot of movie here. Most of it is dazzling; some of it is touching. The

or the first 10 minutes of The Double, you may feel sure that the grim surrealistic surroundings, recognizable to anyone who saw Brazil, will soon dissolve, revealing the real movie after Jesse Eisenberg’s character wakes up. But no, this dreamlike haze is the movie, and it may end up putting you to sleep. Why do so many edgy art films feel so similar? This one is about Simon (Eisenberg), who takes a rusted-out empty subway train to a soulless factory equipped with 1980s-style phones and computers. He’s such a nonentity that the computer can’t seem to keep his name on file. Nothing works for him. When the elevator stalls, he gives it a swift kick. In the next scene, he’s officially chastised for abusing company machinery. Meanwhile, Simon’s doppelgänger, James, waltzes through the workplace, scooping up Simon’s ideas and girlfriends with impunity. It’s weird but entirely predictable. Director Richard Ayoade is the same guy who gave us Submarine. (He also shows up in the brilliant British sitcom The IT Crowd.)

Ultimately, this movie is about nothing more than the age-old mystery of why overconfident oafs win the game of life while sensitive creatures fade into Eleanor Rigby woodwork. To be fair, The Double is obviously meant to be funny, even though it may confuse audiences. Is it Russian literature light (the screenplay comes from a Dostoyevsky tale), or is it just an outright farce?

Movie Guide

Edited by Aly Comingore

The following films are playing in Santa Barbara FRIDAY, MAY 9, THROUGH THURSDAY, MAY 15. Descriptions followed by initials — DJP (D.J. Palladino), KS (Kit Steinkellner), JW (Josef Woodard) — have been taken from our critics’ reviews, which can be read in full at The symbol ✯ indicates the film is recommended.



✯ The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Just Like Us (72 mins.; R: language) This 2010 documentary follows a group of young stand-up comedians as they tour from their home in Dubai to Beirut, Riyadh, and New York and touch on cultural taboos and geopolitics through humor. Wed., May 14, 6pm,

(142 mins.; PG-13: sequences of sci-fi action and violence) Reviewed on page 57. Arlington (2-D)/ Camino Real (2- D and 3-D)/ Metro 4 (2-D and 3-D)

The Double (93 mins.; R: language) Reviewed on page 57. Wed., May 14, 7:30pm, Plaza de Oro

PREMIERES Fed Up (92 mins.; PG: thematic elements including smoking images, brief mild language)

Stephanie Soetchtig directs this documentary about American eating habits, weight gain, and the American food industry’s dirty secret. Plaza de Oro Godzilla (123 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of destruction, mayhem, creature violence)

The famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who threaten to wipe out humanity. Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen star. Arlington (2-D)/

UCSB’s MultiCultural Center

Sweet Dreams (89 mins.; NR) A group of Rwandan women rise above the devastation of genocide to form the country’s first all-female drum troupe and open the country’s premiere ice cream shop. Sun., May 11, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

✯ Nymphomaniac: Vol. I (118 mins.; NR)

Lars von Trier directs this sordid tale about a young woman and a self-proclaimed nymphomaniac named Joe, who tells her sexual tales to a man after he saves her from being beaten. Vol. I is a fascinating and stylistically daring film in itself and one that contains echoes of continuity with previous von Trier wonders. (JW) Mon., May 12, 7pm; Isla Vista Theater,

Lars von Trier’s two-part drama concludes with the story of Joe’s adulthood and eventual medical care. In an odd way, the young, lusty titillation of the “arty-dirty movie” dimensions of Vol. I reach greater heights and more resolute meaning in the second part. (JW) Mon., May 12, 10pm;

After waking up in a post-tornado Kansas, Dorothy is whisked back to Oz to help save her friends from a horrible new villain. Fairview (2-D and 3-D)/ Fiesta 5 (2-D and 3-D)

The Other Woman bogs itself down in aimless set pieces; it gives us jokes about getting drunk, or pooping, or dogs pooping, or nattering verbal ďŹ ghts that only make its female victims seem dumb.

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Fireworks displays excite the eyes and lift the spirit. But the smoke and dust they produce can harm the lungs with residues of heavy metals. The toxic chemicals they release may pollute streams and lakes and even groundwater. So is there any alternative? Not yet. No one has come up with a more benign variety of fireworks. But if it happens soon, I bet it will be due to the efforts of an enterprising Aries researcher. Your tribe is entering a phase when you will have good ideas about how to make risky fun safer, how to ensure vigorous adventures are healthy, and how to maintain constructive relationships with exciting influences.

(June 21 - July 22): “You can’t have your cake and eat it, too” is an English-language proverb. It means that you will no longer have your cake if you eat it all up. The Albanian version of the adage is “You can’t go for a swim without getting wet.” Hungarians say, “It’s impossible to ride two horses with one butt.” According to my analysis, Cancerian, you will soon disprove this folk wisdom. You will, in effect, be able to eat you cake and still have it. You will somehow stay dry as you take a dip. You will figure out a way to ride two horses with your one butt.

predator. The elk decimated the berry bushes of Yellowstone, eating the wild fruit with such voracity that grizzly bears and many other species went hungry. In 1995, environmentalists and conservationists got clearance to reintroduce wolves to the area. Now the berry bushes are flourishing again. Grizzlies are thriving, as are other mammals that had been deprived. I regard this vignette as an allegory for your life in the coming months, Libra. It’s time to do the equivalent of replenishing the wolf population. Correct the imbalance.

challenge this theory in the coming weeks, Capricorn. Your passions will definitely not be weak. They may even verge on being volcanic. And yet I bet you will manage them fairly well. By that I mean you will express them with grace and power rather than allowing them to overwhelm you and cause a messy ruckus. You won’t need to tamp them down and bottle them up, because you will find a way to be both uninhibited and disciplined as you give them their chance to play.



(July 23 - Aug. 22): I know this might come as a shock, Leo, but … are you ready? … you are God! Or at least godlike. An influx of crazy yet useful magic from the Divine Wow is boosting your personal power way beyond normal levels. There’s so much primal mojo flowing through you that it will be hard if not impossible for you to make mistakes. Don’t fret, though. Your stint as the Wild Sublime Golden Master of Reality probably won’t last for more than two weeks, three tops. I’m sure that won’t be long enough for you to turn into a raving megalomaniac with 10,000 cult followers.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): I have no problem with you listening closely to the voices in your head. Although there might be some weird counsel flowing from some of them, it’s also possible that one of those voices might have sparkling insights to offer. As for the voices that are delivering messages from your lower regions, in the vicinity of your reproductive organs: I’m not opposed to you hearing them out, either. But I hope you will be most attentive and receptive to the voices in your heart. While they are not infallible, they are likely to contain a higher percentage of useful truth than those other two sources.



(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Would you please go spend some quality time having non-goal-oriented fun? Can I convince you to lounge around in fantasyland as you empty your beautiful head of all compulsions to prove yourself and meet people’s expectations? Will you listen to me if I suggest that you take off the mask that’s stuck to your face and make funny faces in the mirror? You need a nice long nap, gorgeous. Two or three nice long naps. Bake some damn cookies, even if you’ve never done so. Soak your feet in Epsom salts as you binge-watch a TV show that stimulates a thousand emotions. Lie in the grass and stare lovingly at the sky for as long as it takes to recharge your spiritual batteries.

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): In your imagination, take a trip many years into the future. See yourself as you are now, sitting next to the wise elder you will be then. The two of you are lounging on a beach and gazing at a lake. It’s twilight. A warm breeze feels good. You turn to your older self and say, “Do you have any regrets? Is there anything you wish you had done but did not do?” Your older self tells you what that thing is. (Hear it now.) And you reply, “Tomorrow I will begin working to change all that.”

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Kangaroo rats live in the desert. They’re at home there, having evolved over millennia to thrive in the arid conditions. So well-adapted are they that they can go a very long time without drinking water. While it’s admirable to have achieved such a high level of accommodation to their environment, I don’t recommend that you do something comparable. In fact, its probably better if you don’t adjust to some of the harsher aspects of your environment. Now might be a good time to acknowledge this fact and start planning an alternate solution.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Free jazz is a type of music that emerged in the 1950s as a rebellion against jazz conventions. Its meter is fluid and its harmonies unfamiliar, sometimes atonal. Song structures may be experimental and unpredictable. A key element in free jazz is collective improvisation — riffing done not just by a featured soloist but by the entire group of musicians playing together. To prepare for your adventures in the coming days, Taurus — which I suspect will have resemblances to free jazz — you might want to listen to music by its pioneers, like Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, and Sun Ra. Whatever you do, don’t fall prey to scapabobididdilywiddilydoobapaphobia, which is the fear of freestyle jazz.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Apple and Exxon are the most valuable companies in America. In third place, worth more than $350 billion, is Google. Back in 1999, when the future Internet giant was less than a year old, Google’s founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page tried to sell their baby for a mere million dollars. The potential buyer was Excite, an online service that was thriving at the time. But Excite’s CEO turned down the offer, leaving Brin and Page to soldier onward by themselves. Lucky for them, right? Today they’re rich and powerful. I foresee the possibility of a comparable development in your life, Gemini. An apparent “failure” may, in hindsight, turn out to be the seed of a future success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Over a hundred years ago, the cattle industry pressured the U.S. government to kill off wolves in Yellowstone National Park. By 1926, the wolves had all but vanished. In the following decades, elk herds grew unnaturally big, no longer hunted by their natural

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): “Those who control their passions do so because their passions are weak enough to be controlled,” said writer William Blake. I think you will

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Dear Pisceans: Your evil twins have asked me to speak to you on their behalf. They say they want to apologize for the misunderstandings that may have arisen from their innocent desire to show you what you had been missing. Their intent was not at all hostile or subversive. They simply wanted to fill in some gaps in your education. Okay? Next, your evil twins want to humbly request that you no longer refer to them as “Evil Twin” but instead pick a more affectionate name, like, say, “Sweet Mess” or “Tough Lover.” If you promise to treat them with more geniality, they will guarantee not to be so tricky and enigmatic.

Homework: Upon waking up for the next seven mornings, sing the song that fills you with feisty hope.

aobab fruit is the next superfood to be excited about, and Luc and Barbara Maes are the charming husband-and-wife duo behind Kaibae, the ecologically conscious, community-driven business that’s bringing the baobab fruit to Santa Barbara. “They call it the Tree of Life,” said Luc about the baobab’s legendary status in Africa.“It is the center of the community, a source for food and tools, and it’s a place of protection.” It was a trip to Ghana that first planted the baobab seed for Luc, a naturopathic physician and chiropractor. He wanted to harness the fruit’s powers for American consumers but also founded Kaibae as a One Percent for the Planet company in order to support the people of Ghana, as well. Today, Kaibae works with four separate communities to sustainably harvest the fruit, which isn’t an easy task. While the trees are respected, ancient, and abundant, the fruit is considered a “lost crop” since its benefits are neglected or underused, so the trees tend to be remotely located deep in the African savannah rather than easily accessible on farms or orchards. Among other baobab benefits, Kaibae’s packaging lists high amounts of fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, Luc and Barbara Maes thiamine, and vitamin B6. It’s also a natural energizer, said the Maeses, and it enhances ing of its heavenly scent, this kosher, organic product the growth of probiotic bacteria in the immune system. from the Oxnard-based Primal Essence reduces blood In fact, baobab’s benefits are so well known in African cholesterol despite its high amounts of saturated fat.

WINE GUIDE Beer of the Week Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company’s Bière de Ménage In a wine country awash with breweries, you’d expect a beer‑meets‑ wine offering every month in Santa Barbara, but this collaboration between Figueroa Mountain and Margerum Wine Company — whose facilities are adjacent to each other on Industrial Way in Buellton — is one of the few. In this case, the beer is a dry, pale, French‑style farmhouse ale (with grassy hops and a fruit‑enhancing saison yeast) that was thrown into oak barrels with specially selected lots of Doug Margerum’s guava‑inflected sauvignon blanc, and left to mingle for a few months. The release parties for this project (the first of the brewery’s new second label, Liquamentum, which focuses on regional ingredients) and the Lizard’s Mouth IPA are at the Figueroa tap rooms on May 15 in Santa Barbara and May 16 in Buellton, and then it’s for sale to everyone via Whole Foods on Memorial Day Weekend.

+++++++++++++++ OPEN FOR BUSINESS: Ruben Perez (right) and Nate Curteman welcome Santa Barbarans to try their new downtown eatery on Ortega Street, The Black Sheep.


The Restaurant Guy

Celebrating 21 years!

The Black Sheep Opens

Fresh. Tasty. Affordable.

on Ortega Street


new restaurant named The Black Sheep opened Sunday, May 4, at  East Ortega Street. “This restaurant concept was born on being a neighborhood place with family-style sharing, an amazing craft beer list, and a great happy hour,” explained owner Ruben Perez. The Restaurant Gal and I decided to check it out this week and enjoyed the Roasted Heirloom Carrots (in duck fat with garlic rosemary), Roasted Beets (with pear, blue cheese, frisée, and pistachio), Potato Croquettes, Jumbo Diver Scallops (à la minestrone, flageolets, cannelloni white beans, tomato, and herbs), Braised Brunette Downs Australian Grass Fed Beef Cheeks (braised in banana leaves with ancho chili, annatto seed, tequila, lime, and tomatoes), Chocolate Caramel Hazelnut Torte (salted caramel sauce and vanilla bean ice cream), and Rice Pudding (with seasonal fruits and berries). Happy hour at The Black Sheep is 4-6 p.m., Tuesday-Sunday. Call 965-1113 or see theblacksheepsb .com.

SMOKE ’N BARREL CLOSES: Readers “Mister P” and “Black CA Guy” tell me that Smoke ’N Barrel BBQ Shack at  Marketplace Drive in Goleta has closed after seven months in business. I stopped by and saw a sign on the door that read “Closed for business. Thank you to our customers that supported us.” RUMOR MACHINE: Word on the street is that Elements Restaurant might make a return to Santa Barbara, to its longtime home at  East Anapamu Street, currently occupied by Piano Gastrolounge. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call. DINING FOR SOLSTICE: On Wednesday, May 14, 5-9:30 p.m., The Restaurant Gal and I, along with more than a dozen community leaders, will be waiting tables at Pascucci restaurant ( State St.) for the Solstice Parade’s annual fundraiser. One hundred percent of your dining bill, including tip, will go toward Solstice. Thank you, Pascucci owner Laura Knight! CADA KIDS: A daylong Dine Out event will be

held Tuesday, June 24, to support CADA’s youth programs. Residents are invited to dine at their favorite participating restaurant, and a percentage of proceeds will go to support CADA Kids. CADA MORE Kids represents the preventive FOOD SEE P. 43

substance-abuse programs of CADA, reaching thousands of young people annually. Its services include The Mentor Program, Teen Court at the Daniel Bryant Center, the early intervention programs TART and CARE, Friday Night Live and Club Live leadership programs, and Youth Service Specialists, which serve all public junior high and high schools. To sign up as a participating restaurant or check the listing of restaurants, go to

MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH: After the successful

launch of brunch on Easter Sunday, Executive Chef Jason Paluska and the team at The Lark,  Anacapa Street, will present a special Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday, May 11, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. The menu will be served family-style with dishes to share. Highlights include Paluska’s Crispy Bread Pudding Beignet with Roasted Strawberry and Lime Leaf Chantilly; Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Meyer Lemon Aioli, Bacon & Caramelized Onion Marmalade; Lacinato Kale Salad with Smoked Blue Cheese Vinaigrette, Medjool Dates, Pixie Tangerines, Roasted Hazelnuts; Pastrami Cured Salmon with Dill Crème Fraîche, Granny Smith Apple Relish, Red Mustard Greens, Horseradish, Brioche; and Farmers Market Frittata with Local Roasted Vegetables, Sheep’s Milk Feta, Almond Romesco, Shaved Fennel. Pricing is à la carte, ranging from $6 for snacks to $26 for large plates. For this Sunday holiday, The Lark will be closed for dinner service. For reservations, call 284-0370.

McGOLD CARD: I ran into Mr. Santa Barbara (a k a Larry Crandell) at a party recently, and he showed me his solid metal “McGold Card.” It reads: “The McGold Card. This card entitles Larry Crandell free food for himself for life at any of our Santa Barbara or Goleta locations. Happy 90th birthday. Thank you, David Peterson.” Crandell tells me he was very appreciative to receive it and tries to dine at McDonald’s at least once a month.
