1. We don’t need a new jail. The existing jail is more than large enough if it wasn’t being filled with more than 70% of its average daily population with arrested persons awaiting trial. As crime declined and the sentenced prisoner court declined Sheriff Bill Brown who is obsessed with building a new jail, has overcrowded it with more and more pretrial defendants to create the appearance of an overcrowding crisis. There was a crisis—twenty years ago, before crime and the number of sentenced prisoners started dropping (and kept on dropping). This has been a phony issue for over ten years, but those who stand to profit from a jail have run a successful disinformation campaign that may destroy the County’s budget. 2. Under Sheriff Bill Brown, the ballooning incarceration of pretrial defendants has cost us over $100 million extra. Not only is a new jail unnecessary and unjust to defendants locked up merely because they are charged with crimes, but it is very expensive. Paid for by Royce D. Stauffer 6

Some things change, but these four Santa Barbara Independent staffers always arrive to work on bikes. From right, majordomo Nick Welsh sits astride his 28-year-old Michael Celmins custom, which has seen a few surgeries in its time. Artist in residence Ben Ciccati, an incurable tinkerer with a fleet of ever-changing bikes, is posing with his Greg “Lemon” cyclocross commuter. Dr. Brandon Fastman awarded himself this Gold Coast bike when he completed his PhD and writes about it in this week’s cover story. And if you haven’t seen our Big Shot Paul Wellman on his Trek mountain bike around town, outfitted to carry all his photo equipment and enough provisions to survive the first month of the zombie apocalypse, then you probably don’t live in Santa Barbara.

Conrad J. Schmidt  – 

Sylvia Lindquist

Conrad J. Schmidt, born , passed away  May . He is survived by his daughter, Arielle, and his sister, Sue. Conrad had many friends from all around the world. He will be remembered for his magnetic and outgoing personality. He loved life, people, traveling the world, sailing his Goldenwave , Lono -- named for Hunter S. Thompson’s “The Curse of Lono”, surfing, classic sports cars, building model airplanes, he loved Formula  and a good steak. He lived a life full of adventure having been a charter captain in the Virgin Islands, living in Brazil, and meeting unique characters that you would never believe existed outside the works of Mark Twain or Ernest Hemingway. He is best remembered by his friends and family as a man who was always ready for the next adventure. “Fight the good fight, drink the good drink, smoke the good smoke.”

Sylvia died peacefully on May , , after  years of living and giving to others. She was a Santa Barbara resident for  years. She was born and raised in Dillon, Montana. Sylvia spoke Danish until she attended a one room schoolhouse. She loved everything Danish, cooking red cabbage and Æbleskiver, and traveled to Denmark to visit relatives. She was a past president of the Danish Sisterhood and “sister of the year” of California, president of local DSS lodge # and the Danish Brotherhood. She married Bill and over  years they had  children. They lived in Oxnard and enjoyed camping, neighborhood potlucks, and musical events. She was very proud of her six children, and two who became professional harpists. She enjoyed many meals from her only son, Tom, who always brought fish, abalone, elk, and venison. In the ’s Sylvia moved to Santa

Barbara with her  small children and worked as an RN at Oak Park Convalescent Hospital and Hillside House. She joined Parents without Partners and enjoyed the fun family time. Sylvia volunteered for the Ladies of Charity at the St. Vincent de Paul Society. She was honored as the volunteer of the year in . She just loved the sisters. She just gave and gave and gave of her time and her love. She nursed her daughter Peggy through a serious illness and will always be her greatest hero. She adored all her grandchildren and took trips to New York, Alaska, Oregon, San Francisco and Trinidad, California to visit them. She loved watching Olympic ice skating, classical music concerts, knitting, needlework, gardening, tea parties, Montana and Denmark. She made famous jam, from fruit she grew, and the best lemon meringue pies ever. Sylvia made friends wherever she went, the YMCA water aerobics class and woodworking class. She was a mom to untold thousands. She was predeceased by her daughter Claudia. She is loved by her five children Karen, Susan, Tom, Peggy and Ellen, eleven grandchildren, two great grandchildren and relatives in America and Denmark. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Ladies of Charity, or any charity of your choice. Services are Friday, May , at St. Raphael’s at : pm.

FAIR PLAY FOR GOLETA THE CITIZEN'S COALITION IS FIGHTING TO END GOLETA'S REVENUE NEUTRALITY AGREEMENT WITH SANTA BARBARA COUNTY SB County, with its $850 million budget, takes from Goleta taxpayers over $5 million a year. Goleta’s budget is only $22 million. SB County takes 50% of our portion of the Goleta’s property tax and 30% of our sales tax till the end of time. The County does not make the same extraction from any other city. The Revenue Neutrality Agreement between Goleta and SB County is considered by many to be the “worst Revenue Neutrality Agreement in California.” No other agreement in California runs into perpetuity.

Proudly Endorses:


oters who choose to sit out this June 3 election do so at their own peril. And we might add, ours, too. The ominous Measure M gets this year’s award as the Trojan horse with its too-good-to-be-true language. The nd District showdown pitting incumbent Janet Wolf against challenger Roger Aceves — and his oil-industry-financed campaign — threatens to tilt the fundamental balance of power at the board of supervisors. And in the race for Count Sheriff, we have a candidate in Bill Brown, who actually did what he promised in his campaign. So here is the second installment of The Santa Barbara Independent’s endorsements for the June 3 election.You don’t have to agree with us; just consider our points, and then vote — by mail or in person. Just vote!

for County Sheriff

heriff Bill Brown isn’t Superman. But he did secure $120 million in state funding to build a new North County jail, and by Santa Barbara County standards, that qualifies as the next best thing. As much as this paper abhors America’s unsustainable appetite for “lock-’em-up” laws, the reality is that Santa Barbara’s South County Jail has been in serious need of replacement for decades. Not only is it crammed to the gills, but it is unsafe for inmates and staff alike. That qualifies as inhumane. For nearly 30 years, the construction of a new North County jail has been one of the holy grails of Santa Barbara politics. Brown’s predecessors — some of whom were blessed with remarkable political gifts — all thrust their shoulders to this wheel; all failed to deliver. That Brown managed to acquire the land and talk $120 million from state agencies headquartered in Sacramento needs to be recognized as the remarkable accomplishment it truly is. And he was able to achieve this in the middle of the Great Recession. When Brown first ran for sheriff nine years ago, he pledged to get the new jail built. How many elected officials make good on campaign promises? About $80 million will be spent to build a traditional 376-bed facility in North County, which will be completed in 2018. Another $40 million will be used to build a 228-bed facility designed to prepare inmates for the life skills needed when released. If all this seems expensive, it is. And these numbers only tell part of the cost. For example, the county will have to spend roughly $20 million a year to run the larger facility. That money has already been snipped out of the general fund. But as the state was forced to relocate thousands of less-threatening prisoners to avoid the wrath of federal judges, the Santa Barbara County Jail, already overcrowded, was compelled to absorb a whole new population — 150 on any given day. The court system — itself egregiously underfunded — has failed to process its criminal caseloads in a timely fashion. As a result, the number of county prisoners held behind bars while awaiting trial has nearly doubled. Add to the mix prosecutors who file “commercial burglary” charges on simple shoplifters, and you get system overload. We need a North County Jail. But we need more.

Although public-safety departments were spared the full brunt of budget cuts when the economy tanked, Brown’s department took a major hit. Sixty-four fulltime positions were eliminated. Restorative-justice and community-policing initiatives — which Brown championed early in his career — were never able to expand effectively. The County Jail has been the site of largescale hunger strikes, multiple lockdowns, and other incidents. It is urgent that Sheriff Brown focus far more of his considerable talents on addressing these pressing problems now and not wait until 2018. We are confident that, when reelected, he will do so.

Sheriff’s officials have released few details surrounding the death of 20-year-old Sierra Markee-Winkler, the UCSB student found dead on an Isla Vista beach nearly two weeks ago. An autopsy was recently performed, but authorities declined to discuss its findings and said no determination of cause of death will be announced until a later date. Lt. Rob Plastino with the Isla Vista Foot Patrol noted that an earlier examination of Markee-Winkler’s body didn’t reveal the injuries typically associated with a fall from the cliffs above where she was found. He theorized she somehow drowned, but noted the case remains open.


Lompoc Feels the Burn

County fire crews called in the big guns to battle the 600-acre Miguelito Fire that broke out Tuesday afternoon on a hillside south of Lompoc. The DC-10 tanker, accompanied by three helicopters and 49 engines, helped keep the blaze from reaching 1,200 nearby structures, and as of press time, all evacuation orders had been lifted. But with temperatures in the low 90s, Santa Barbara responders keep working to increase their 50 percent containment with support from Ventura and Los Angeles agencies. No injuries have been reported, and investigators are working to determine what started the fire. Read full coverage of the incident by Independent Outdoors Editor Ray Ford — Independent Staff at

‘Mr. X’ Casts Large Shadow

Growing Involvement by Mexican Mafia Alleged in Gang Injunction Trial



s the City of Santa Barbara’s long-awaited gang injunction trial approaches the conclusion of its second week, a mysterious character dubbed “Mister X” by prosecuting attorneys has emerged as the trial’s most compelling and dramatic figure. Although Mister X has yet to testify, his revelations were invoked extensively by expert witness Greg Anderson, an ardent supporter of gang injunctions and a senior prosecuting attorney from the Fresno District Attorney’s office who has written no fewer than seven gang injunctions himself. According to Anderson, Mister X — reportedly a shot caller for the city’s Eastside gang now being held in County Jail — met with him and other law enforcement officials last week for nearly 90 minutes. In that time, Mister X outlined in vivid detail the growing role of the Mexican Mafia — otherwise known as “La Eme” — in the affairs of Santa Barbara gangs. Anderson claimed that Mister X told him that he was instructed by a high-ranking member of La Eme that members of Santa Barbara’s rival gangs needed “to cool their jets” when the gang injunction was first proposed more than three years ago. According to Anderson, Mister X said gang activities could resume once the threat of the injunction had passed and that gang members would be entitled to “catch up” with what they’d lost by laying low. Anderson said Santa Barbara’s two main criminal street gangs — the Eastside and the 12

Westside — have long been typical California turf gangs, preoccupied with territorial primacy but largely unaffiliated with any statewide criminal enterprises. He added, however, that Santa Barbara gangs have been culturally unique in their reliance upon knives and clubs, rather than guns, as their weapons of choice. He testified that when Santa Barbara gang members found themselves prosecuted for more serious offenses, they came under increasing scrutiny by La Eme — a prison-based gang that offers protection and benefits to gang members from Southern California. More critically, Anderson testified, La Eme began to realize the untapped financial potential Santa Barbara had to offer. “La Eme decided it needed to exert more local control over what’s going on in Santa Barbara,” he said. Its first priority, he testified, “was more aggressive taxation.” By that, he indicated La Eme would designate a handful of Santa Barbara gang members as their designated tax collectors, charging them with extracting tribute from drug dealers operating within their territories. Mister X, Anderson charged, was at one time one of two tax collectors in Santa Barbara County. The other, he claimed, was Raymond “Boxer” Macias, an Eastside gang member now facing charges for extortion and torture as part of a tax-collection effort in Santa Maria. Jury selection for Macias is now underway. Macias remains one of the 11 individuals named by the gang injunction proposed by the City of Santa Barbara. He was also active with the nonprofit Palabra, which

has claimed it put a lid on gang violence by having ex-gang members talk sense to active gang members. Although Anderson’s testimony focused on how effective gang injunctions were — he claimed that four highly anecdotal and admittedly unscientific studies he conducted in Fresno demonstrated that crime dropped by 30-50 percent within six months after the injunctions were introduced — the specter of the Mexican Mafia appears to address two key weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. For starters, the statistics introduced last week by Sergeant Dave Henderson showing the incidents of gang crime between 2004 and 2009 were notably squishy, defense attorneys argued, providing no distinction if the gang members involved were witnesses, perpetrators, or victims. Likewise, they provided poor differentiation as to the severity of the offense. Henderson testified he identified 537 validated gang members or active participants, but that was over a 19-year period. That figure is hard to reconcile, however, with Anderson’s testimony that there are between 400 and 500 gang members within city limits right now. (Later in the trial, Santa Barbara Detective Gary Siegel — a designated expert as well — testified the number could be as low as 300.) Recent statistics released by the city’s own police department also revealed a sharp decline in gang violence and incidents over the past few years. (By contrast, gang violence in Fresno is much greater, and cont’d page 13  there are more gang kill-

The tourism bureau also unveiled its new “I Am Santa Barbara” outreach campaign and training program, designed to help those who work in the tourism business to be better informed and empowered to spread the Santa Barbara message to all visitors. A $288 million Santa Barbara City College bond measure that would pay for the replacement of the campus center, construction of new classrooms, and other building projects looks like it will head to the November ballot after survey results showed a high approval rating among voters. In fact, 73 percent of respondents in a phone survey conducted by an independent firm said they’d vote yes or “lean yes” to support the measure. SBCC’s board has until June 26 to formally deliver a resolution to the county registrar, and the measure would need 55 percent voter approval to pass.

COUNTY County flood-control workers may be forced to tear down 10 of the 16 debris dams on the South Coast because the Department of Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) determined the dams could jeopardize steelhead trout, a federally endangered species. Five of the debris basins will have to be removed in the next 10 years. The remainder will have to come down or be modified after that. County Flood Control Chief Tom Fayram said the determination was made shortly after he submitted a 10-year plan for basin maintenance. Steelhead advocates have

“cool their jets,” that might help explain the precipitous drop in Santa Barbara’s recent gang-related activity. To the extent it can be demonstrated the Mexican Mafia has, in fact, increased its involvement in Santa Barbara affairs, that might offset whatever squish factor the judge assigns the city’s gang stats.

Santa Maria Energy axed its plan to merge with Hyde Park Acquisition Corp. II last week after the New York–based company failed to round up enough votes for the $40 million deal, said Beth Marino, Santa Maria Energy’s vice president of legal and corporate affairs. Marino added that the Santa Maria oil-drilling company — which had its 136 cyclic steam-injection wells approved by the Board of Supervisors in November — will neither try to renegotiate with Hyde Park nor try to merge with another company. Instead, Marino said, the company will seek out a private equity investment to raise the $100 million to $125 million in capital to drill those 136 wells.

EDUCATION Tuesday’s school board meeting marked the last chance this year for the public to weigh in on how the district will spend its money. As part of the new funding model, the Local Control Accountability Plan will detail to the state exactly how the district will use allotted funds. Speakers expressed the need for better assistance for English Language Learners and low-income families. Many talked about visual and arts programs, which will “just be a matter of money,” said Superintendent David Cash after dozens of commenters spoke. One teacher took to the podium to argue money could be saved if teachers weren’t pulled out of school for conferences to create Common Core State Standards assessments, as teachers on special assignment were already released from the classroom for that purpose. The plan will be finalized at the second board meeting in June.

Suit Slaps Nukes Santa Barbara Helps Marshall Islands Make Unprecedented Legal Challenge


BY T Y L E R H AY D E N n a modern-day David-and-Goliath matchup — where David is armed with a lawsuit, Goliath with 17,000 nukes — the tiny Pacific nation of the Marshall Islands is suing the United States and eight other countries for allegedly breaching a 46-year-old treaty to dismantle their nuclear arsenals. The case was filed April 24 in U.S. Federal Court as well as in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands. Between 1946 and 1958, the U.S. peppered the Marshall Islands with 67 nuclear weapons tests, whose radioactive fallout continue to leave some of those islands unlivable. “Our people have suffered the catastrophic and irreparable damage of these weapons,” said Marshall Islands Foreign Minister Tony de Brum,“and we vow to fight so that no one else on Earth will ever again experience these atrocities.” Instead of seeking compensation, the lawsuit aims to compel the world’s nine nuclear nations — the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan, and North Korea — to meet the obligations of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Drafted in 1968, the treaty mandates that each country “pursue negotiations in good faith” to end the nuclear arms race “at an early date and to work toward worldwide nuclear disarmament.” (Israel, India, Pakistan, and North Korea didn’t have nukes when the treaty was created, but the lawsuit asserts that the order applies to them because of “customary international law.”) David Krieger, president of the Santa Barbara–based Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, said the idea to file suit was hatched when de Brum traveled to the South Coast in 2012 to accept a leadership award from the Foundation, which then consulted on the case. “There were a lot of people in the world who had been discouraged by the lack of progress in disarmament and were looking for a bold and creative initiative,” Krieger said. “The Marshall Islands action fits that description.” The law firm Keller Rohrback LLP — which has an office in Santa Barbara and specializes in constitutional and treaty law — was retained pro bono. The lawsuit is the first of its kind, but attorney Laurie Ashton believes it was properly

filed because federal courts have jurisdiction over such claims.“It’s a matter of treaty law,” she went on, “which in the United States is both an international obligation and a domestic obligation under the supremacy clause.” As Krieger summed up,“The whole point of the lawsuits] is to bring [the nine nuclear nations] into a forum where they need to address the issue of their unkept promises and unfulfilled obligations.” No one from the U.S. District Court in San Francisco would comment on this pending case, but Ashton said that other countries are interested in joining and that a few Nobel Peace Prize winners are already supporting the effort, including South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Iranian-born rights lawyer Shirin Ebadi. It’s also not the first time a country has sued over nuclear weapons: In 1973, Australia and New Zealand sued France to stop its atmospheric tests over the Pacific and won. At first, France ignored the order, but international pressure eventually forced a switch to underground tests. The Marshall Islands suit argues that rather than scrapping warheads, the countries named are actually ramping up the arms race to the tune of $100 billion a year. But whether the U.S. is complying with or ignoring the treaty remains unclear. “Critical information is still being hidden and access to documents severely restricted by the United States government,” said de Brum. “It is not easy to bargain in good faith absent documentation. … Our nuclear relationship with the United States is fraught with a multitude of promises, some kept, some not, but all negotiated, at least from our side, in good faith.” Krieger pointed to the U.S. withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2002, saying it set a bad tone for future disarmament. The response from other governments has so far been minimal and dismissive. Only three of the countries (Britain, India, and Pakistan) recognize the jurisdictional authority of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), so the Marshall Islands is asking all of them to accept the ICJ’s jurisdiction and explain their positions on the case. They have 60 days to reply. “For me,” said Krieger, “the interesting part about this is when two unequally sized and powerful countries meet in court, they stand on level footing.” ■ may 15, 2014

BY N I C K W E L S H fforts by Santa Barbara City Hall to cajole voluntary reductions in water consumption have proved disappointing, generating only a 5 percent drop in the month of April. The target set by the City Council in February when it declared a Stage I drought alert was a 20 percent reduction. Water planners reported a 12 percent reduction in March, but part of that drop was due to a couple of solid downpours. Acting water czar Josh Haggmark suggested that the new water rates — which begin the month of June — should have greater impact. Monthly water bills for high-use customers are slated to jump from $191 a month to $319, while low-use customers will experience a bump of only 81 cents. Even with the rate increase, Santa Barbara’s average monthly bill will be $10 cheaper than Montecito’s, $21 cheaper than Goleta’s, and $25 less than Carpinteria’s. Beyond that, City Hall will soon enact mandatory water-use restrictions, prohibiting residents from watering down sidewalks, operating ornamental fountains, and watering their lawns during daylight hours. It will mandate cars be washed in car washes that recycle their water and that residents use hoses

with nozzles that restrict flow. First-time violations will be met with warnings. After that, maximum fines are $250 per violation. Haggmark said enforcement would be complaint driven.“We’re not going to be rolling out looking for people,” he said. Haggmark also expressed optimism City Hall would, in fact, be able to buy additional water supplies. State regulators, he said, finally approved a deal to buy 2,000 acre-feet from rice farmers north of the San Joaquin Delta, though about 700 acre-feet of that will be lost as a carrying charge before it ever gets here. Likewise, Haggmark said he’s optimistic that the Vandenberg Air Force Base will agree to sell City Hall about 1,000 acre-feet. In previous months, such transactions were at best speculative and often problematic. If finalized, they would provide the city a much-needed cushion. Longer-term efforts to reactivate the city’s mothballed desalination plant appear more problematic, as the California Coastal Commission has expressed concern over the adequacy of City Hall’s emergency permit and whether the seawater intake approach is technologically outmoded and environmentally destructive. ■

Bag Ban Takes Effect


BY N I C K W E L S H fter years of wrangling, the first phase of the City of Santa Barbara’s muchdebated ban on single-use plastic bags went into effect this Wednesday, meaning that customers frequenting 18 large supermarkets and pharmacies had to find other means of carrying their purchases out of the stores. Paper bags will still be allowed under the ordinance, but vendors will be required to charge customers 10 cents per bag to discourage their use. Paper bags, anti-bag activists acknowledge, have even larger carbon footprints than singleuse plastic. “The purpose of the ban is not to get people using paper but to switch to multiple-use bags,” said Kathie King of the Community Environmental Council, which, along with groups like Surfrider and Channelkeeper, spearheaded the bag-ban drive. King estimates 47 million single-use plastic bags are used annually within city limits. The ban — when fully implemented — will reduce that number, she said, to five million. “I think that’s probably enough for picking up dog poop,” she said, referring to one of the more prominent arguments waged by plastic-bag supporters against the ban. King praised city



may 15, 2014

environmental planners for their outreach work with the supermarket and pharmacy chains that will be most immediately affected. Likewise, she noted most of these corporations have dealt with bag bans already in effect in 100 other California cities. The second phase of the ban, regulating 64 smaller outlets selling food, snacks, and alcohol, takes effect November 14. Exempt are lighter plastic bags used within supermarkets to contain meat and produce, as well as newspapers, dry cleaning, and nonfood-or-drink-related retail products. The State Legislature is now considering yet another proposed statewide ban on plastic bags. Two previous attempts have failed, and the plastic-bag lobby has announced intentions to wage a full-frontal assault on the latest, introduced by State Senator Alex Padilla. Under Padilla’s bill, consumers would be charged 10 cents per paper bag. As with the Santa Barbara ordinance, that money will be kept by the vendors and not collected by any public agency. King said she’s waiting to see how the state bill fares before pushing the county supervisors and the Goleta City Council to follow the City ■ of Santa Barbara’s lead.


KEEPS ON TRUCKIN’: Executive Director Andy Harper has kept the Center for Lifelong Learning afloat despite a difficult transition to fee-based classes.



t’s no secret that Santa Barbara City College gets high marks in a lot of areas. Last year, the school was named the “Number  Community College in the Nation,” and a recent telephone survey indicated a very high approval rating among randomly selected respondents. But the creation of the Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL), which opened last summer after it was founded by the Board of Trustees in 2012, came amid enormous controversy.

CLL replaced SBCC’s robust Adult Education program, which provided approximately 300 vocational and certificated classes and 500 personal enrichment courses to tens of thousands of students — many low income — for 60 years at virtually no cost. Following the economic downturn, trustees decided to dismantle state-funded Adult Ed courses and charge fees for certain classes, citing the need to prioritize funds for transfer students. Many vocal community members rallied against the move. “I think people were really nervous to begin with,” said CLL Executive Director Andy Harper. But as the first daunting year wraps up, Harper is happy to report that 7,000 students have enrolled in courses, despite the fees. Though not all courses survived the transition, an average 400 classes are still offered each session. Moneywise, Harper said, statistics indicate CLL should break even by the end of this fiscal year. Many similar programs have difficulty just “getting off the ground” in the first year, Harper added. Donations have also kept the program afloat, and 125 “tuition assistance” grants have been given to eligible students.“We’re not here just to grab their money,” Harper said. “We’re here to provide a service.” Class prices are determined by teachers, who receive 45 percent of tuition revenue. The program will continue to morph to better cater to student preferences, Harper promised. Summer registration opens ■ June 9.

More Carrizo and Los Padres Protection Sought in Central Coast Heritage Act


 Non-Surgical  For Men & Women  Non-Invasive  No Downtime  FDA-Cleared PROPOSED PRESERVATION: Hikers look out over the Cuyama area, which would receive more protection under Capps’s new bill.


BY R AY F O R D fter working more than a year to build broad support for a bill to expand wilderness protections in Los Padres National Forest and Carrizo Plain National Monument (CPNM), as well as newly designate 158 miles of wild and scenic rivers, Congressmember Lois Capps will announce on Thursday her new bill, the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act. The act would increase the amount of wilderness designations in all Central Coast portions of Los Padres, as well as establish three new wilderness areas in the Carrizo Plain; add wild river status to large sections of the Manzana, Mono, Indian, Sespe, Matilija, and Piru creeks; and officially designate the Condor Trail as a national recreational trail. “The Central Coast is home to some of the most diverse habitats and ecosystems in North America,” Capps explained.“We are really fortunate to have these national treasures right here in our backyard.” Though 49 percent of Los Padres is already designated wilderness, Capps noted there are potential threats to many of the non-wilderness parts and that they are too important not to protect. “It’s about the future we want to leave for our children; it’s about what we want to leave to them after we’ve gone,” she said. The proposal would increase the coverage by 240,000 acres. The bill is strongly supported by a coalition of organizations, businesses, and individuals, including the Wilderness Society, Sierra Club, and Audubon Society. Jeff Kuyper, executive director of Los Padres ForestWatch, ticked off a list of things that currently could occur in these non-wilderness areas, including oil and gas exploration and development; construction of temporary roads, communication towers, and facilities; thermal energy development; mining exploration; and commercial harvesting of wood products. “Unlike national parks, national forests are generally open to all types of development and industrialization,” Kuyper said. “This bill seeks to permanently protect some of the most important public lands in our region, for the benefit of wildlife, clean water, and outdoor adventure.”

Capps noted that designation of the Condor Trail as a national recreational trail is an extremely important part of the bill. “The fact that it highlights and supports the protection we need to provide for the California condor is really important,” Capps said. Rachel Kondor, district representative for Capps in Santa Barbara, also noted that national recognition of the trail brings with it the potential for increased care and maintenance of the route and its feeder trails. The act also authorizes the creation of the Caliente Mountain, Soda Lake, and Temblor Range wilderness areas in Carrizo, totaling just over 62,000 acres. Capps noted that these areas are critical condor habitat and need the additional protection of a wilderness designation. The largest controversy has come from mountain bikers concerned about the loss of trail access; mountain biking is not permitted in wilderness areas. Jack Greenbaum, vice president of the Santa Barbara Mountain Bike Trail Volunteers (SBMTV), said his group could not support the bill and pointed out the Upper Mono, Alamar, and Alamar Hill trails would be lost to mountain bikers. Capps Press Secretary Chris Meagher noted that all three are currently designated “Recommended Wilderness” and are already being managed as such.“There is no net loss of trails under the proposed bill,” Meagher said. The loss of a 2.5-mile section of the Fishbowls Trail near Mutau Flats will be offset by the creation of a four-mile–long trail just above New Cuyama to Aliso Campground that had been fenced off for more than two decades. Greenbaum countered, “How can the backcountry trails be maintained to acceptable standards if existing wilderness areas are expanded to include more trails?” Matt Sayles of Los Padres ForestWatch explained a process called “cherry stemming,” by which land alongside trails were designated non-wilderness to allow the use of power tools and equipment to keep the trail accessible to mountain bikes. “We have … protected the heart of the Los Padres Forest from development for future generations,” Sayles said. ■

What Hath Dog Wrought?

PARTY CRASHERS AT THE GATE: Comedian Groucho Marx famously joked he would never

belong to any club that would allow him as a member. It was such a great line that zillions of people have been stealing it since. But Bishop Patricia Fresen, speaking Monday  night at Trinity Episcopal Church to a solid crowd of gray-haired Birkenstock Catholics (mercifully, without socks) — who never recovered from the brief window of hope, opened 50 years ago by Vatican II — sought to turn Groucho Marx’s dictum on its head. By that, Fresen is intent on crashing a party that’s repeatedly 86’d her. Like a lot of people, Fresen believes women should be ordained as priests. But, unlike a lot of people, this ex-Dominican nun from South Africa actually got ordained. And like even fewer, she became a bishop and has since ordained countless women priests. For these heresies, Fresen got the boot from The Church. “It’s not as terrible as some people think,” she said. “I’ve been ex-communicated five times.” Short and stout, Fresen is a determined sprite who calls to mind former tennis great and civilrights champ Billie Jean King. Probably it was just the über-wide 1978-vintage lapels she sports. Or maybe it’s that in pre-Mandela South Africa, she ran a Catholic school that admitted both black and white kids, violating the express laws of apartheid. In any case, she knows a thing or two about remaining dry while spitting into the winds of history. Back when I was still taking direct orders from the Vatican about what movies I couldn’t

watch, I’d have known Fresen was going straight to hell. Since then, things have changed. At least, sort of. The new pope, Francis, is so unpredictably delightful and charismatically openhearted he makes the ever-giggling Dalai Lama look like a dour nihilist in dire need of pharmaceutical intervention. But even Francis has his limits.“That door is closed,” he famously intoned on the subject of women priests. This from a man who just declared if little green men from outer space landed on Earth — presumably from Mars — he’d happily baptize them. But where the ordination of women is concerned, God, it turns out, has a penis. Most Catholics are understandably uncomfortable discussing this fact in mixed company. Back in 1994, the Vatican sought to address this question — however delicately — by decreeing, “Women are not made in the full image of God as man was.” That, by the way, qualified as serious progress for the church. Not so long ago, the acclaimed Catholic theologian St. Thomas Aquinas concluded women were “deformed males” and seriously questioned if they had souls or were, in fact, fully human. Hey, you’ve come a long way, baby. But rules are rules, and the Vatican would not be the longest-running centralized authoritarian regime in world history — dictating the moral boundary lines for no fewer than 1.2 billion people — without them. Still, it seems their application can be selective at times. When Pope Francis decided to elevate two famous former Popes — John XXIII and J2P2 — to the pantheon of saints, he fast-tracked the Vatican’s

notoriously slow and deliberative canonization process. More than that, he flat-out waived the Vatican’s strict two-miracle requirement for Pope John XXIII. While I appreciate the shrewd political gesture involved — unifying the two warring factions within the church embodied by these two popes — Francis is dancing at the precipice of the proverbial slippery slope. If we can toss the two-miracle rule — however bogus the Vatican’s basis for documenting alleged miracles — when it suits our fancy, what else can we choose not to believe and get away with it? Clearly, there’s the church dictum — issued by Pope Paul VI while wearing the cloak of infallibility — against birth control, which 98 percent of all Catholics openly ignore. (Turns out Paul VI is also being fast-tracked for sainthood.) What’s next? Allowing divorced Catholics to receive the sacraments? Married priests? Most definitely, Fresen says. And after that, women priests. But I’m not holding my breath on the latter. Two weeks ago, the Vatican’s chief orthodoxy enforcer came down hard on the Leadership Conference of Women Religious — made up of high-ranking American nuns — condemning them as “radical feminists.” They ran afoul of the Vatican by seeking to honor a prominent theologian who got sideways with the enforcers for expressing a preference for “nonauthoritarian” images and references of the Almighty. Fresen told a story about ordaining two women priests in St. Louis back in 2007. The proceedings took place in a reformed Jewish

synagogue because Catholic facilities were strictly off-limits. The singing was sublime, the tears copious. All kinds of transcendent stuff was in the house. But so were spies dispatched by the archbishop at the time, Raymond Leo Burke, who photographed everyone who received communion. Burke tracked them down and demanded they repent or face excommunication. This is the same guy who opined that any Catholic who voted for any pro-choice candidate was committing a mortal sin, which carries a sentence of hell without possibility of parole. Shortly after lowering the boom on Fresen, Burke was promoted to the exalted rank of Cardinal. Today, Burke sits on the committee responsible for regulating the process by which the church produces priests. I don’t know for a fact whether hell actually exists, but I’m guessing it will be a very cold day down there before the Vatican allows any descendants of Eve — it was, after all, all her fault — to perform priestly duties. Given the vast gulf between the church Fresen supports and the church that actually exists, I remain mystified why Fresen is so intent on crashing this particular party. Even so, I’m gratified. If and when Fresen makes a dent, it will become a vastly better party. And although it took about 500 years, the Vatican eventually admitted it was wrong about Galileo and acknowledged the Earth actually revolved around the sun.You see, miracles do happen. I’m just not sure which saint is responsible for that — Nick Welsh one.

RNA Fair Play


n The Santa Barbara Independent’s endorsement of Janet Wolf for nd District County Supervisor [], you ignored the justice of Goleta’s attempt to recapture its tax dollars from the county. The Revenue Neutrality Agreement (RNA) that Mike Brown, Bill Chiat, and the county forced on Goleta at incorporation has taken more than $85 million from our small city of 30,000 in just the last 12 years. The annual $5 million currently extracted is about half of one percent of the county’s $850 million budget. Goleta pays what all other county cities do and then an additional 50 percent of our property tax share and 30 percent of our sales tax, which no other city in the county pays. I have always considered The Indy a champion of the underdog, a newspaper that tries to create a better commonwealth for all the area’s citizens. For you to dismiss Goleta’s RNA grievance against the county in such an offhand way is very disappointing. — Jim Farr, Goleta City Councilmember

Yes on Measure M


his election season has brought about a new phenomena. The politicians are telling us just what they will not do for the voters. Voters have watched for years as the infrastructure, i.e., roads and buildings, have deteriorated due to lack of attention from the Board of Supervisors. We are now hundreds of millions of dollars behind in needed county maintenance. The th District’s Supervisor Peter Adam has observed this shortcoming for years, and he took the initiative to do something about the mess the supervisors have created. He got the signatures and put the issue on the ballot as Measure M. This measure forces the county to maintain roads and buildings in “present” condition. In other words, things should not get any worse in the future. The other four supervisors oppose Measure M, saying it would ruin the county’s economic future. What they are telling you is they have no intention of maintaining your roads or public buildings. If they shoot down Measure M, just what will they do to maintain these vital roads and buildings? Their plan is to do nothing.

Voters, is that what you want? Don’t you think we should protect what we already have? Vote YES on June 3 — Justin M. Ruhge, Lompoc to pass Measure M.

No on Measure M


easure M- on the June ballot may look like a good idea at first glance, but it would have serious long-term consequences. Seventy-five percent of the county budget must go to mandated programs that the state or federal government require; the remaining 25 percent is all the discretionary money the county has for other urgent needs. Measure M would take a large portion of that discretionary money away from other important services every year, and permanently. Because no source of funding is provided in Measure M, other important programs would have to be cut. The ballot rebuttal against Measure M notes that police, fire, and emergency services might have to be reduced. The League of Women Voters believes government bodies need flexibility in handling their yearly budgets. This ballot measure does not allow such flexibility. The League is joining the Environmental Defense Center and other public nonprofits in urging you to vote NO on — Susan Shank, Measure M-. S.B. League of Women Voters

New Jail Unneeded


invite readers who believe that our county needs a new jail to visit the website It’s the product of hundreds of hours of investigation. It appeared that we would need a new jail in the 1990s, but since then the number of sentenced prisoners has fallen in half, and the jail is overcrowded merely because the number of pretrial defendants held in the jail has increased from 45 percent of the total to over 70 percent. If the previous rates of pretrial detention had held, the jail would be hundreds under its rated capacity. The existing jail’s rated capacity is already larger, given our population, than the jails of Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego counties, and also larger than the state average. The campaign for a new jail is the work of the powerful pro-incarceration lobby. If you have doubts, go to the website. All the links to original data are there. — Russell Trenholme, Montecito

How to

Build a Bike


here are two answers to the question

why Rudolf (Rudi) Jung fabricates icates bicycle frames. The first is that he stands a lanky 63 tall. While people with bodily dimensions that aren’t too far on either extreme of the bell curve can usually find an off-the-shelf bike that fits well, Jung never rode a bike that felt right until he up and made his own. The second reason, and more telling answer, is that Jung is the type of person who, if he grew up in Alaska, would forge his own dogsleds out of used tomato soup cans. Jung did not grow up in Alaska, however. He grew up a BMX grom in California, and now he races regularly on the SoCal cyclocross circuit. So he builds bikes. When I asked Jim Cadenhead, the owner of Cranky’s Bikes on State Street, why he feels comfortable recommending Jung to customers, he referred to Jung as a “savant.” Aside from making frames under the moniker Gold Coast Bicycle Manufacturing, Jung paints his bikes himself and etches head badges out of used cymbals. He also restores motorcycles, print-screens T-shirts, and designs his own Gold Coast racing kits, available for sale at Cranky’s. “Anything Rudi sets out to do,” said Cadenhead,“he learns to do perfectly.” It was Cadenhead who first suggested that I talk to Jung. At first, I blanched. A handmade frame is a worthwhile investment but not a cheap one. Well-regarded builders can easily charge upward of $5,000, to say nothing of all the components necessary to

make a fully functional bike. As a relative ive newcomer, Jung commands mands more modest prices, but after seeing how much labor he put into the frame that I eventually bought, I actually felt as if I cheated him. For whatever reason, I couldn’t kick ck the thought that Cadenhead had planted in myy head. The benefits to having a custom frame are practical (tubes sized specifically to your body dimensions for maximum comfort and efficiency), idealistic (supporting a local craftsman who builds with American-made steel), and superficial (getting to choose

When I saw that envelope, I took it as a sign on my next bike. that I should splurge sp Jung can also a thank a bit of serendipity for the start to his fledgling enterprise. He had dream dreamt of fabricating bicycle frames for eight years by the time he finally, in 2010, saved enough money to take a course at the United Bicycle Institute (UBI) in Oregon. But just before he left on his pilgrimage to

AMGEN 2014

When more than 250 cyclists in Stage 5 of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California reach the city limits on Thursday, May 15, they will be whizzing by at 50 mph on the downhill side of Highway 154. Once they level out, they’ll have to negotiate several sharp turns before stretching out into a fast sprint from Shoreline Drive to the finish line on Cabrillo Boulevard, between Garden Street and Calle César Chávez. For the latest on Amgen 2014, see — John Zant



ay brings to Santa Barbara America’s closest equivalent to the Tour de France — the Amgen Tour of California. If you’re like me, you’ll spend the afternoon of May 15 waiting to see 128 colorfully clad cyclists scream down San Marcos Pass before sprinting to a shoreline finish on Cabrillo Boulevard. But cycling isn’t merely a competitive endeavor. It has been and continues to be a means of transportation; a symbol of women’s suffrage; a carbon reducer; a form of recreation, meditation, adventure, exercise; and a vehicle for artistic expression. Stories about cycling in Santa Barbara, in all these various forms, abound. So when we started to put together an issue dedicated to CycleMAYnia, I had as many ideas as there are beach cruisers in Isla Vista. Alas, a newspaper is only so big, and I have only so much time, so some of the stories will have to wait for future issues. In the end, I chose two stories about two figures who exemplify a decidedly open, unpretentious approach to the bicycle. One is Ed France, the executive director of the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition. “Our advocacy is not about being die-hards,” said France, who hopes to make the bicycle the default mode of transportation for trips under a mile, not the domain of exclusive subcultures. The other figure is less of a household name. Rudolf (Rudi) Jung will never speak in front of the City Council. And he doesn’t, like France, know the average monthly cost of car ownership ($500 if you are curious). He just knows he’d rather ride a bike when possible. And when he’s not riding, he’s humbly designing and crafting beautiful handmade bicycle frames in his garage. He even donated one — a 50 cm women’s cyclocross frame that was painted by tattoo artist Jake Vantiger — to be auctioned by the Bicycle Coalition. It is currently on display at Bici Centro on  East Haley Street. There’s no doubt Jung, like France, agrees that whether you avail yourself of one of his own creations, the offerings in any of Santa Barbara’s excellent bike shops, or the recycled steeds at Bici Centro, the conclusion of Mark Twain’s 1884 essay on learning to ride a bicycle still rings true: “Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live.” w

Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, Jessye Norman grew up amid the challenges of Jim Crow racism with the Civil Rights Movement just beginning to awaken. Nurtured by a close family and tight-knit community centered on the local church, Jessye was always surrounded by song and spirituality. Decades later, after a meteoric rise at the Berlin Opera, a long-delayed debut at the Metropolitan Opera, and forays into spirituals, blues, jazz, and other roots music, she has become one of America’s most beloved performers. Join us and this inspiring artist in a discussion of her new memoir Stand Up Straight and Sing!

SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD ROUTES What did you learn from Stephen Clark? He’s compiled all the solutions to all the toughest problems in other American cities. We’ve got these tough problems that we basically said we can’t do anything about it. Meanwhile cities that have a little more ingenuity than us have been willing to try things, test them, evaluate them, and they know what works. The toolbox just got a lot bigger. And a lot of the tools are cheap. They don’t necessarily mean taking parking or space from traffic.

Give me some examples of the low-hanging fruit. Protected lanes are something we eventually want, but paint is the lowhanging fruit. Paint is something you see in Goleta and Ventura. Oakland and Long Beach both have green lanes that are shared lanes, but it’s really clear that a bicyclist belongs in that space. The perceived safety just shoots up. And because of increased motorist attention, the actual safety [does as well]. And that’s paint. That’s not breaking any asphalt, any curbs. It’s super cheap, and it’s effective. Bicycle boulevards [which are clearly marked bike routes]. We have these dumb sharrows [shared-lane markings] that are not backed up by anything else. And you put it on a dangerous street like San Andres. People are confused, and they continue to drive really fast. Get yourself on Rancheria Street down to the City College. You don’t just have sharrows but directional sharrows. You have bicycle boulevards. Let’s just get a coherent bicycle-networks signage system. People don’t know about the Anapamu Bridge. People don’t know about the Ortega Bridge. How many millions of dollars went into those bridges? They should be marked. That’s like a $200 solution for a $2 million bridge. Which projects are your top priorities? The missing links. Hollister in Old Town Goleta. Upper State Street. The area around Mission Street where Bath and Castillo just end. [These are all areas where a bike lane ends abruptly.] The return of the Haley Street bike lane [that only runs from West to East]. The Western Goleta Valley from where El Colegio ends connecting to Ellwood. Why is it so hard for people living in Ellwood to get to the [UCSB] campus? The biggest and best project in all the South Coast in my personal opinion: Car-

pinteria Creek in Carpinteria already has an undercrossing, and that needs to be extended along where Via Real is to get to the neighborhood on the mountain side of town. Carp is a great bike town, but the  has severed it, and all of the bridges are too narrow. You already have an undercrossing that’s a bike path. It’s just not connected, and it’s only 200 yards. Your average driver might see big infrastructure changes as a huge cost just to appease a few cyclists. That’s a political problem we have. We’re seen as a special-interest lobby. We’re not here to be appeased. We’re here to make cycling accessible to the general population. We’re here to get our transportation-funding policy to be thoughtful, and to make those investments effectively and prudently. If you are constantly investing in more capacity, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. … You put in more lanes, [and] people will drive on them. There is finite space, but how do you manage that 38 feet curb to curb? First off, let’s be real. We over-invest in parking. The high cost of free parking is that there’s not parking available in a lot of places, which is not economical. In a true liberal, laissez-faire economy, parking should be structured. Whatever the government provides for free without a lot of rules gets abused. Parking gets abused. Furthermore, congestion is logarithmic. The last 10 percent of traffic causes 90 percent of the problems. If you could convert the last 10 percent of trips off of any congested road into walking, bicycling, bus, carpooling, you would not reduce congestion 10 percent. You would reduce congestion very significantly. And bicyclists pay into the transportation system. The gas tax only covers about a third of our transportation costs. The rest of it is property tax and sales tax. So if somebody ever says to you, these bicyclists aren’t paying their way, bring them to me, and I’m going to give them a talking to. [Laughs.] We have to look at our transportation system and how we manage it. I think we haven’t. I think we’ve emotionally looked at how our transportation system works. If you ask an investor who lost a lot of money why they invested in a certain company, they’ll say,“Oh, I love that company. I feel good about that company.” Was that a thoughtful

STREET SMARTS: Ed France gets around town on his Surly Big Dummy cargo bike, but he’s no dummy. As pictured, he’s assessing feedback on bikeways gathered from members of the public. France hopes that the South County’s current network of cycling pathways, delineated in yellow on the top map, looks more like the bottom map by 2020. investment? Did you have a diversified portfolio? Were you putting the right amount of money into high-growth stocks? Bicycling is the fastestgrowing means of transportation on the South Coast. What are some of the numbers? On the South Coast, bicycling makes up 7.5 percent of all work trips, according to the census. That’s a lot. The average U.S. city is less than one percent. But we still have a long way that we could go. Boulder, which has way worse weather and is more hilly than us, is at 14 percent. Davis is at 25 percent. Santa Barbara prides itself on being an environmental leader, but we’re an environmental amateur in the bicycling arena, but that’s good because it means there’s potential for growth. What is the Bicycle Coalition’s role in fostering that growth? The Bicycle Coalition is dedicated to making cycling accessible to anyone from 8-80 in the Santa Barbara community. For short trips, it’s a simple solution that’s affordable, flexible and convenient, healthy, environmentally friendly, and reduces congestion. It’s just a positive thing for the individual and for the community. Part of how we are doing this is through our Bici Centro DIY community center. We have helped 4,000 in our space over the last seven years. We also make cycling more accessible to our community through education at nine schools and community centers from Carpinteria to Santa Maria, with the eventual goal of bike education for K-12 being a normal part of going to school, a basic part of PE curriculum. Our education work also complements the work done by COAST with Safe Routes to School. The latest and greatest way that we’re helping to make cycling more accessible is we’re gathering input and building a base of community stakeholders to advocate for a connected, safe network of bicycle paths and lanes and boulevards throughout the South Coast. So you should be able to bicycle through any neighborhood in the South Coast to get to where you want to go safely. What is your goal? We’d like to see our rate of bicycle use — through infrastructure and all of our programs — go where it is today (7.5 percent for the South Coast) to 20 percent by 2020. So one out of every five trips would be by bike. Tell me about the Bicycle Coalition’s lending program. We are going to make available to members a small fleet of cargo bikes, tandems, an electric bike, and a couple of town bikes with gears. Because these are otherwise unavailable for people who want to borrow a bike that they wouldn’t want to store in their garage, or if they have a guest come stay with them for a weekend, and they want to borrow a real bike for them. … It will be Santa Barbara’s first bike share — but for Bike Coalition members only. How do you become a member? You can become a member on our website or at any of our events. It’s $30 for the year, and there are all kinds of perks besides the lending library: events, discounts, free bike lights. k

Set to music — from hits by artists like Pharrell to classics from the 1960s — the dance styles are an energetic, fun way to work out without noticing you’re doing so. “With LaBlast, you’re actually learning ballroom dances,” said Clarke, explaining that this is the main difference between Zumba and LaBlast. Another difference is the type of workout. “While Zumba is anaerobic, with the same high heart rate the entire time, LaBlast is an interval workout; it is more focused on cardio interval training,” he added. Clarke is not joking about LaBlast being an interval workout. The class starts out with a simple but energetic dance routine and works up to fast-paced routines that each incorporate different dance styles. The class is as hard or as easy as you make it; while instructing, Clarke pointed out added moves that can be done to increase the level of workout. The more power you put into the moves, the better the workout is. Each class can burn anywhere from 500 to 1,000 calories. Currently, Clarke is teaching cha-cha, disco, salsa, jive, samba, and paso doble routines. While there are 12 levels of difficulty in LaBlast, Clarke is only teaching levels one and two. As the class picks up and more students learn the routines, he plans on expanding into more difficult levels. —Mckinley Krongaus

Unless you are a California history buff of the highest order, you probably know nothing of the Santa Bárbara Mission Archive-Library, one of the New World’s most important but least known treasure troves of historical documents. Located in a series of specially constructed rooms in Mission Santa Barbara’s portico, the library was founded as a nonprofit in 1968 and opened in 1970. Accessible to the public, the library offers the chance to study the correspondence between the friars and soldiers of the late 1700s, peruse the baptismal records of the early 1800s, or scan the latest academic tome on Golden State history, as the centuries-old collection continues to grow weekly. But because of a tight budget and a staff of just one paid person, library visitors must schedule an appointment, sign up for an annual membership ($35, but $15 for students), and shed a little light on what they’re looking for before they arrive. Although quite renowned among historians, the facility remains somewhat of a secret to Santa Barbara at large. The library hopes to change that this year, though, starting with a free event on May 22 that will show off 21 oil paintings created in the late 1800s by Edwin Deakin and donated to the mission by Howard Willoughby. Event attendees will hear a lecture from art conservator Scott Haskins, get to check out the Deakins, and then, if they so

t all started with an experiment. Last October, the 6th graders at Marymount of Santa Barbara took a pledge to try and live off of $1.50 a day. The challenge was in honor of UN World Food Day, which was created in 1945 to highlight food scarcity and the dire nature of the world poverty line. “Over 1.1 billion people live off a dollar or less a day,” said 6th grade teacher Kate Burris last week as she reflected on the experience. “The kids were all game to try it. They prepped. They donated their lunches. But by 10 o’clock they were crashing. We all collectively fell apart.” With the realities of hunger laid before them, Burris’s students started digging around for ways to help. Together, they discovered that one in four people in S.B. County are food insecure. “We all hear the numbers, but it’s actually happening right here,” said Burris. After some deliberation, the students decided to throw their collective weight behind the Casa Esperanza homeless shelter, and the fundraising efforts began. They erected lemonade stands, held plant sales, took pledges for basketball hoop-a-thons, hosted a chili cook-off — and raised more than $4,800 in the process. The grand finale comes this Tuesday, May 20, at SOhO, when Marymount’s 6th graders hold Rock the Casa. The benefit concert will feature a headlining set by Diamond Dave Somerville of The Diamonds, who also happens to be the grandfather of 6th grader Chae Somerville. Also on the bill are Marymount teacher Matt Kustura and 7th grade rockers Stolen Thunder. It’s the students’ hope that the concert will bring in enough money to allow Casa Esperanza to hire a new parttime employee. “There are so many things about this that have been so rewarding on so many levels,” said Burris. “In the past year, I’ve seen a whole shift in their mindset and the way they Rock the Casa takes place look Tuesday, May 20, 6:30 p.m., at at the SOhO Restaurant & Music Club world.

John La Puma Focuses on Food and Health


anta Barbara is home to many doctors, chefs, authors, and

entrepreneurs. Dr. John La Puma is all four. A UCSB grad who attended Peabody Charter School, La Colina Junior High School, and San Marcos High School, La Puma now operates his own clinic downtown. The physician’s focus on lifestyle measures extends to other areas and stems from his years spent working concurrently as a cook at Chef Rick Bayless’s restaurant Topolobampo and as a medical professor in Chicago. (La Puma also graduated from the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago.) He has since written numerous books on nutrition and founded his own company, ChefMD. La Puma, a boardmember of the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, recently chatted with The Santa Barbara Independent about the mingling of medicine, food, and health. Below is an edited version of our conversation: You talk about the concept of “culinary medicine.” What do you mean by that? I define it as blending the art of cooking with the

science of medicine to give restaurant-quality food that helps to prevent and treat disease. Here in Santa Barbara, some of the best food is really being cooked at home. We’re so lucky to have the bounty of ingredients that we have that grow locally. … Culinary medicine is something that doctors ought to know and patients should be able to ask about. Why does our society seem to prioritize prescription fixes over food fixes? Pharmaceuticals are overvalued. But there is

some evidence that’s changing, too. We’re seeing a lot more interest in approaches that try lifestyle first. … The shift in the demographic

enrollment in medical school is now a slight majority of women. … I think women have improved communication in medicine — less prescribing and more interest in what caused this problem and how can we get at its root.

When you lived in Chicago, you worked as BEING WELL: John La Puma (pictured) a doctor and as a chef combines medicine and nutrition as a at the same time. How? means to a healthy lifestyle. Why? I worked from 9 p.m.-

midnight [as a chef] on Fridays for almost four years. What I loved about it: the flavors and textures and colors. I got to be part of a restaurant community and part of a team. In medicine, teams are undervalued and not appreciated. In restaurants, unless there is a fluid working team, the whole ship sinks.

How can restaurants make food tasty and healthy at the same time? Chefs are often better teachers than doctors about food.

The Running Man

UCSB’s Track Star Shyan Vaziri Dominates in the 800- and 1,500-Meter Events PAUL WELLMAN


by John Zant

ou’re remarkable,” Shyan Vaziri kept hearing from his mother, Feryal, when he was growing up in San Diego. His parents had long since left their native Iran, but they remained true to their culture in naming their son. “[Shyan] means ‘remarkable’ in Persian,” he said. There were a lot of ways for him to try to do remarkable things in sports. He played Little League baseball and club soccer, a sport his father had played at Point Loma Nazarene. When he was a freshman at Scripps Ranch High School, Vaziri went out for track. “I loved it,” he said. “I won my first race. It was such a different feeling from other sports. You feel such pressure, so nervous. It goes away after you finish. The result is black-andwhite — it tells you exactly how you’re doing.” He was doing quite well by his junior year, breaking the two-minute mark in the 800 meters by several seconds. But it was still short of remarkable. “I flew under the radar,” he said. As a senior, Vaziri suddenly flashed onto the radar. “My time improved by five seconds,” he said. At the 2011 California State Meet, he finished second in the 800 final in a time of 1:50.2, the fastest ever run by a San Diego Section athlete. It might have surprised some people that he chose to go to UCSB, a school where the running track is in serious need of restoration, but Vaziri’s decision has worked out remarkably well for him and for the Gauchos. “Ryan Martin was my big brother my first year,” Vaziri said. “Ryan and Rusty Parker looked after me. They taught me how to manage life as a student athlete.” The three called themselves the “Eight Crew,” as all were 800-meter runners. Martin, a senior with a blazing kick, proved to be one of the best in the nation in 2012. He finished a fast-closing fourth in the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials. “We were screaming at the TV,” Vaziri said. “He came so close to making the London Olympics. Every runner’s dream is being in the Olympics one day. I dream of Ryan and me representing UCSB in 2016.” Vaziri will be moving up from the 800 to get there. At the Bryan Clay Invitational at Azusa Pacific last month, he clocked 3:42.44 in the 1,500 meters, shattering the UCSB record of 3:43.80 set by Mike Chavez in 2007. The time equates to a four-minute mile. The Gaucho junior’s progress to elite status in the 1,500 did not come overnight. “Coach [Pete] Dolan’s philosophy helped me,” Vaziri said. “You build your aerobic base over time. My first year, I didn’t do as many miles as in high school. Now I’m doing twice as much.” The 58, 130-pound Vaziri is a smooth runner with exceptional durability. That is evident in the 23 collegiate races he’s won and the five times he has been a double winner in the 800 and 1,500, most recently in a dual meet at Cal Poly two weeks ago. “It’s amazing how strong he is,” Dolan said. “He’s unfazed by hard workouts this year.” The 1,500, 3¾ laps around the track, is a different challenge from the two-lap 800. Dolan said, “It comes down to tactics in the last lap” — how long to hold back, when to make a move — and that depends on how much a runner has left. Vaziri did some surfing in San Diego and was delighted to find that Dolan may be the only Division I college track coach who regularly goes out on his board. The two have surfed together at Sands Beach near Isla Vista. Another discovery Vaziri has made is the Sam’s To U sandwich shop on Hollister Avenue. “I looked in the window and saw a picture of a Persian kebab,” he said. “It’s my favorite food.” All things considered, this remarkable Gaucho runner

FLEET FEET: As a high school junior, Shyan Vaziri (pictured) flew under the radar in the 800 meters. When he became a senior, however, he just flew. “My time improved by five seconds,” he said. Now a UCSB junior, Vaziri also competes in the 1,500 meters and has progressed to elite status; last month, he clocked 3:42.44, shattering the previous UCSB record set in 2007.

said, “If I had my pick of any school in the nation now, I would stay at UCSB.”

MAGIC OF THE MILE: Roger Bannister broke

through the four-minute barrier in the mile run on May 6, 1954. It remains the most memorable performance in track history. Yet it is rare now to see a mile run at a track meet. The 1,500 meters, a relic of the days there were 300-meter tracks, remains the comparable Olympic distance. In the conversion of tracks from 440 yards to 400 meters, most high school federations have substituted the 1,600-meter run for the mile. A four-minute 1,600 is fast but not fast enough, because a mile is 1,609 meters. Santa Barbara resident Ryan Lamppa, media director of Running USA, is determined to bring the mile back into prominence. Two years ago, he founded Bring Back the Mile, an organization that is lobbying officials to restore the classic distance to championship meets. “It’s going to take a long time,” spokesperson David Monico said, “but every year there’s more and more buzz. This year is incredible in terms of the history of the mile.” Monico noted that most mile events in the U.S. are for recreational runners and veterans. “They’re getting more popular,” he said, “and the prize money for mile events across the country is doubling. The State Street Mile is an example.” Santa Barbara’s 15th Platinum Performance State Street Mile will be held on Sunday, June 1. It will offer

$4,000 in guaranteed prize money. The top male and female finishers each will earn $750, with a $500 bonus for breaking a record — 3:49 for the men (Michael Coe in 2013) and 4:33 for the women (Melissa McBain in 2005 and Tara Erdmann in 2012). Coe was aided by the downhill grade of the course down State Street, but the Lompoc native is a legitimate four-minute man, having set the UC Berkeley record of 3:56.2 on the track.

NOTABLE MARKS: Barbara Nwaba of the Santa Barbara Track Club (SBTC) broke through the 6,000-point

barrier in the heptathlon for the first time in her career, winning the seven-event competition at the Mt. SAC Relays with a score of 6,043 points, the top mark in the U.S. The UCSB graduate set personal bests in the 200 meters (23.91 seconds), long jump (19), and 800 meters (2:11.42). . . . Ashton Eaton, the Olympic champion and world-record holder in the decathlon, extended his preseason training camp at Westmont College to six weeks this spring. He will take the year off from the decathlon and compete in hurdles and jumps at various meets. His wife, Brianne Theisen-Eaton, will enter this month’s international heptathlon in Götzis, Austria. . . . UCSB junior Albert Hughes unleashed a personal best of 1646 on his final discus throw to give the Gaucho men a three-point victory over Cal Poly in their dual meet. . . . The Gaucho women also won by a narrow margin, as sophomore Tori Tsolis won a hotly contested 1,500 in a personal best: 4:26.76. . . . UCSB will compete in the Big West Championships at UC Davis this weekend. . . . In the Golden State Athletic Conference Championships, two Westmont College juniors from San Marcos High were double winners. Shane Rowan won the long jump (225¾) and triple jump (472¼) as the Warriors repeated as men’s champions. Elysia Hodges took the women’s 400 (55.89) and 200 (24.84). Hodges earlier set a school record of 59.16 in the 400 hurdles. . . . In the UCLA men’s dual-meet victory over USC, two Dos Pueblos High graduates won their events while recording lifetime best marks — Nicholas Scarvelis with a throw of 644½ in the shot put and Sergey Sushchikh running the 5,000 meters in 14:23.41.

New Victoria Street Concept Serving Sushi-Like Plates


rom boiled octopus that melts in your mouth to ginger-spiked fatty tuna, urchin- and caviardosed halibut, luxuriously rich lamb belly, and Italian wines you’ve never seen (cannonau!), there are epicurean epiphanies being served right now on West Victoria Street. The latest in the Morello family’s mini-village of Italian restaurants that they started building in 1999 a half-block off State Street with the white tableclothed Olio e Limone, Olio Crudo Bar occupies the meticulously remodeled, rather tight space that, for the past 18 years, housed The Herbal Spirit. That former tenant was a somewhat mysterious store selling all sorts of earthly wonders, and with so much excitement coming out of the Crudo kitchen, there’s clearly some magic left in the building. Of course, for Elaine and Alberto Morello, it’s much simpler than that. “It’s the kind of food we crave eating late at night,” said Elaine during my recent visit, explaining that the formula for Crudo is the same that’s brought them great success at Olio e Limone and the adjacent Olio Pizzeria.“We just keep putting out favorite things and making it available for guests,” she said.“It’s not rocket science.” The Morellos — he’s from Sicily, she’s a UCSB grad from Agoura Hills, close to Westlake Village, where they are opening new restaurants later this year — designed the new space as an ode to Milan, and the LED-lit faux marble backdrop and high-ceilinged bar gives the otherwise tiny 26-seat restaurant both breathing room and big-city sensibility. The chefs are Francesco Pesce, a stereotypically strapping Italian from Marche, and Ramon Velasquez (founding chef of Cielito), who both work behind the bar alongside the cocktail shakers. But epiphanies come at a price, and in my hour or so at the bar, my solo tab would have easily exceeded $100 for food alone had I not been the Morellos’ guest. Yet Elaine counters that the prices are, in fact, “very underpriced.” Take the Spiedino, for instance: four ounces of Austra-

lian-raised Kobe-style beef. “That would be $80 in Los Angeles, but here it’s $27,” said Morello.“We didn’t want to be prohibitive.” The wine and cocktail prices also approach the high end, but are well within the normal range of Santa Barbara’s top establishments, from $10-$20 a glass. With that in mind, here are the dishes and wines that wowed me, and I’m already saving up for return trips. Tonno Rosso: The spicy

Atlantic bluefin tuna belly with ginger vinaigrette and wasabi shoots is delicate and light, eaten preferably with chopsticks, yet Elaine pledges, “We’re not trying to be sushi!” Paired with the Venetian prosecco from Mionetto Cartizze.


Ippoglosso: Halibut drizzled with Japanese sea urchin, Siberian caviar, and lemongrass. Revelatory. Try with the arneis from Cerreto in Piedmont. Polipo: “This octopus

costs more than lobster!” said Alberto of the meat he imports from the Mediterranean. It’s served with Controne peppers, slightly sweet potatoes, and boiled into a heavenly consistency like I’ve never tried, approaching Vienna sausage and not chewy at all. Excellent with the Concerto Lambrusco from Emilia-Romagna. Pancia d’Agnello: Lamb belly is somehow even better than pork belly (which they also serve). This is where our wines got weird: lagrein from Hofstatter in the Alto Adige and cannonau from Pala I Fiori in Sardinia. Torrone: You are totally full, and yet you eat the

entire cup of this nougat mousse with spicy dark chocolate; it’s like a custard with nibs. No drink required, unless you have lambrusco to finish.


Olio Crudo Bar is open at 11 West Victoria Street seven days a week, from 5-10 p.m., except on Friday and Saturday, when it stays open ’til 10:30 p.m. or so. Call 899-2699 or visit

o grape endures as much stylistic shifting as chardonnay, whose buttery, oak-driven side appeases the New World masses while critics rave about its Old World potential for bracing acidity and revelatory minerality. Today, countless California winemakers are discovering the sweet spot between those two extremes, so the state of chardonnay — especially from the Central Coast, where growing conditions are ideal — is extremely good, arguably better than ever before. The best place to test that theory is this weekend at the Dolphin Bay Resort in Pismo Beach, where winemakers from the Napa Valley to Santa Barbara County and beyond will be on hand to pour their best bottles, quite often offering completely distinct styles made by the same winery. Among the dinners and grand tastings, there’s an educational panel on Saturday morning (moderated by yours truly) aimed at understanding how the grape is grown in a changing, climactically screwy world. I tasted the eight wines being poured in advance and also asked the winemakers for their thoughts on the current chard trends. Here’s what they said, with wines listed in order of how they will be poured on Saturday. Talley Vineyards: The pioneering Edna Valley winery makes wines that truly showcase the dirt in which they are grown, resulting in bright, vivid flavors. “This is probably the best time in history for California chardonnay,” said owner Brian Talley.“The diversity of place, vine age, and wine style yields an amazing array of truly world-class wines.” Pouring: Oliver’s Vineyard 2012 & Rosemary’s Vineyard 2012

Tolosa Winery: Tolosa is one of the Central Coast leaders in the stainless-steel chardonnay movement, but that doesn’t necessarily mean tight, sauvignon blanc-like wines. Their “Pure,” for instance, packs luscious fruit. While almost all of the growth in chardonnay sales has been with our No-Oak, what is most encouraging for me personally is the strengthening of respect for the Old World style: subtle, grippy, and complex,” said winemaker Larry Brooks.“The compliment I most like to hear about my own Tolosa wines is,‘I don’t like California chardonnay in general, but I like this wine.’” Pouring: Pure 2012 & 569 2012

Hyde de Villaine: A globe- and gen-

eration-spanning collaboration between

WHITE WINING: Wine from Bien Nacido, Tally, Tolosa, and Hyde de Villaine will be served as part of this weekend’s Chardonnay Symposium in Pismo Beach.

California’s Hyde family and Burgundy, France’s legendary Aubert de Villaine of Burgundy, France (considered by many the best winemaker in the universe), HdV produces wines with tongue-tantalizing acidity, built, like Burgundy’s best whites, for long-term aging though excellent now. “I believe various California chardonnay producers are becoming more comfortable with their expectations of what chardonnay can be (and will be) from their respective vineyard sites,” said president A.J. Fairbanks. “I see a gradual evolution where producers are allowing chardonnay to represent their vineyards, not their cellar. Ultimately, this leads to wines composed of the vineyard attributes allowing to better understand what chardonnay can truly be in California.” Pouring: Hyde Vineyard 2011 & Hyde Vineyard 2010

Bien Nacido: The Miller family, who founded this centerpiece property of the Santa Maria Valley more than 40 years ago, is now making wine under the Bien Nacido label, and the chardonnays bring a lot of everything to the table: rich fruit, bright acid, and fine oak, making for a cohesive experience.“Winegrowers who have, for decades, been making cool-climate chardonnays that highlight site and elegance instead of technique and flamboyance are being rediscovered,” said winemaker Trey Fletcher. “A younger generation of winemakers who recognize these innovators have steered American chardonnay toward a leaner, mineral-driven, and sometimes austere wine. For me, there is room for everyone at the table regardless of your preference.” Pouring: Bien Nacido Vineyard 2012 & Bien Nacido Vineyard 2010. — MK

SOUL MAJESTIC SETTING THE TONE It would be easy to chalk Soul Majestic up as one of Santa Barbara’s seemingly endless stream of chilled-out reggae acts. But then again, appearances can be deceiving. For Setting the Tone, which dropped earlier this week, the band took to the web and crowd funded their way through the recording, mixing, mastering, and pressing processes. The result is a nuanced mix of sun-dappled groovers flecked with sonic flourishes that are both unexpected and wholly organic. The album kicks off with “Setting the Tone,” a track that is,

WELCOME HOME: Santa Barbara Dance Arts students will celebrate the opening of the organization’s new studio on May 22.


OPENING INDEED It’s been a long time coming. Since being told that they would need to vacate their Funk Zone space in 2012, the folks behind Santa Barbara Dance Arts (SBDA) have been working tirelessly to relocate. Step one in the process: finding a suitPERFORMING able space. In spring 2013, after nearly a year of scouring, OPENS ON COTA STREET SBDA and its longtime partners at the Arts Mentorship Program (AMP) signed a lease and began to crack into SBDA’s next chapter. Thanks to a successful capital campaign, which raised more than 500,000, and a handful of loans and gifts from some of the community’s biggest arts supporters, the two groups set their hooks into an old warehouse space at  East Cota Street. And now, nearly a year later, SBDA and AMP really have something to dance about. Next Thursday, May 22, they’ll host a grand-opening celebration for the new Performing Arts Center, complete with ribbon-cutting ceremony, food, drink, performances, demonstrations, and raffles for prizes. As for the space itself, well, it’s nothing to scoff at either. The Cota Street center is boasting five state-of-the-art studios, complete with spring floors and new sound systems. There’s also a homework lounge, free Wi-Fi, a supply store, and a café filled with healthy snacks, all located just blocks from Santa Barbara High School, Santa Barbara Junior High, Transition House, and Girls Inc. (It’s also right on a bus line, for interested parties living outside of the general vicinity.) Classes and camps will be offered throughout the year for children ages 3 to adult. And keeping in line with AMP’s mission statement, Dance Arts will offer needs-based scholarships, as well as affordable rental space for artists, businesses, and organizations throughout Santa Barbara. If you want to scope the space in person, the community is invited to come down and celebrate on May 22 from 4-7 p.m. For more info, call 966-5299 or visit — Aly Comingore

American Idiot Brings Broadway and Punk Rock to State Street



MAY 18



TIME OF YOUR LIFE: The whole cast is onstage for most of the show in the musical adaptation of Green Day’s album American Idiot .


by Charles Donelan




MAY 21 8PM



MAY 24 8PM









or most kids growing up with dreams of rock stardom, the road to success is a long one, and you tend to have to drive the van yourself. But now, thanks to the immense popularity of Bay Area punks Green Day and the theatrical imagination of Michael Mayer, the groundbreaking director who won a Tony Award for Spring Awakening in 2006, there’s a new vehicle for taking guitar-hero aspirations on tour, and it will be pulling in to the Granada Theatre for one night on Wednesday, May 21. Green Day’s American Idiot, the musical, is on national tour after a 400-plus performance run on Broadway. Over the last week, I spoke with two of the young rockers in the cast: Casey O’Farrell, a guitar-playing, rock-singing actor who originally hails from Nashville and plays Will, one of the show’s three main characters, and Sean Garner, another rocker with acting in his blood who got his start right here in such Santa Barbara Civic Light Opera productions as Oliver! and The King and I, is a member of the ensemble, and understudies the lead role of Johnny. “I had to bring my own guitar to the audition,” said Garner, who once appeared in this paper as a member of the circa 2004 S.B. band Goodland. “If you are going to play Johnny, or even just understudy that role, they won’t look at you unless you can actually shred,” he explained, a fact about the show that was confirmed by Casey O’Farrell, who was also in a rock band before taking to the musical-theater stage. But as important as their guitar-hero credentials were to being chosen for the cast of American Idiot, chops are far from all that’s required. “The show has definitely raised the level of my skill set across the board,” said Farrell, who attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York before landing this part. Likewise, Garner sees Idiot as a perfect fit for his personal mix of talents. “At UC Irvine, where I majored in theater, I began by focusing on acting in dramas but then got swept up by the excitement there around such shows as The Wild Party, which I did as an undergrad,” he recalled. After moving to New York, Garner, who still writes and performs original rock music, got bitten by the American Idiot bug after seeing the original Broadway production. “Halfway through the first act, I knew that somehow I would be a part of this show,” he said. “It had everything that I love, and it was put together in a way that was just spectacular.” For O’Farrell, the most exciting thing about American Idiot is the spectacle. “The set won a Tony, the lighting won a Tony, and the cast album won a Grammy,” he gushed. “This tour features a full production with all that vision intact. It’s not like you’re going to have a problem with feeling like there’s nothing to look at.” Although the show’s themes are quite dark — sex, drugs, and alcohol all play major parts in the plot’s unfolding — the encore in particular sends the audience out feeling redeemed. “Anybody who loves rock and likes theater is going to have a great time,” said Garner. For this one-night stand, Theater League is offering a special student rush price of $33 beginning two hours before curtain, which is at 8 p.m. And if Idiot doesn’t sound like your cup of Broadway tea, never fear, as Theater League’s Broadway at the Granada series will be back in 2015 with three more traditional shows — Guys and Dolls, Chicago, and Camelot — and subscriptions are on sale now.

Share a rare evening with one of America’s greatest songwriters


presented by the Lobero Ghostlight Society

by Tom Jacobs


oes art really matter? Can creative expression lift us beyond the mundane, inspire us to think and feel differently, or even change our lives? It’s getting harder to make that claim, at a time when so much of the art world has given in to commercialization. But in the post–World War II era, American artists were very serious about producing work designed to open minds and hearts. Think of John Coltrane’s dissonant jazz or Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. And then there was abstract expressionist Mark Rothko, one of the greatest painters of the era. He hoped to evoke a sense of transcendence in the viewer — to tap into our repressed or forgotten ability to feel awe. As UCSB art historian Laurie Monahan puts it, “He believed that art has the power to take us away from materialism and let us experience something profound.” That belief would be sorely tested today. Just last week, on the front page of the New York Times, journalist Carol Vogel casually referred to “the growing number of collectors willing to spend more than $25 million on a single Picasso or Rothko.” From being the antidote to materialism, great art like his has become an egregious example of it.

REIMAGINED: Guitarist Bill Frisell is known for his versatile playing style. This Friday, he explores the music of John Lennon at the Lobero Theatre.

THE WALRUS WAS BILL Guitarist Bill Frisell Rechannels Lennon at the Lobero by D.J. Palladino


ummons to an 8 a.m. interview with a musician usually signifies that the artist — in this case guitarist Bill Frisell — hails from the Big Apple, where it’s closer to beer-thirty. Not so with Frisell, who spoke last week from his home in Seattle. All of this seems to undermine the authenticity of his jazzman credentials, we posited. “Whoa, I guess that’s true. Maybe I’m not a jazz musician,” he laughed. “But actually, I do my best composing at this time of day. Say what you will; there’s a lot to be said for being fresh from sleep. It’s a more pure state of mind. And it’s too early for phone calls usually. The rest of the world leaves me alone.” Though originally from Baltimore, and often associated with Denver and Boston, where he played his first licks on clarinet and then guitar, Frisell now calls the West Coast home and is closely associated with the Monterey Jazz Festival, which recently commissioned work from the guitarist. Frisell operates under the jazz heading, though he seems much at home with pop, country, folk, and movie music. Live, Frisell avails himself of all the pedals and loops and settings to produce a genuinely sweet, frequently brainy, and always beautiful meditation on melody. “When I did the commission [for the Monterey Jazz Fest], they put me up in a ranch that was left to the festival from somebody’s will,” he recalled. “They left me all alone there for days, completely by myself. The Internet didn’t work up there. I got spoiled.” The product was the dreamy, intense album Big Sur. Given the deplorable state of the contemporary music business, it was a rare occasion to stay rooted. Frisell needs to tour to survive. “Something is a little off in that world right now,” he readily admitted. “I don’t even know who’s in control anymore. Twenty years ago, everybody complained that the record companies were ripping us off. But at least you got something; at least a little trickled down.” Now, he points out, even Lady Gaga can get five billion YouTube hits and then get a check for a few thousand dollars. “It’s super Wild West out there.”

But Frisell, who will fill the Lobero this Friday night with his interpretation of John Lennon songs, is anything but cynical about music. In fact, it was a Santa Barbara musician who helped put him on this seemingly inexhaustible path. “The Beatles were the first music I ever really heard, you know?” said Frisell, who came of age during the late 1960s. “And all those bands I heard! I mean, in one year I heard Herman’s Hermits and then Jimi Hendrix. And then I heard Charles Lloyd, who was playing songs, too, but he was taking them apart and putting them together — and not chopping them up — beautifully. That’s when I decided that jazz was, in my mind, the place where anything can happen.” New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik once wrote that people who cover the Beatles tend to play note-for-note reproductions. Frisell laughs. “That’s not what we do. These songs are basic to all of us now; they’re part of our DNA. And there’s so much in them, the chords and the melodies and the words; there’s so much.” He and his bandmates perform a kind of musical cubism. Each band member might be “singing” a different part, but then they all start “singing” the same song. “[We’re] taking them apart and turning them upside down,” he said. He likens what they do onstage to physical confrontation. “Like when you meet someone, you don’t have to fight with them. You stay there and you figure out what you have in common. That’s what I love about music,” he said. He even gets up early in the morning for it.

THE WAY THEY ARE by D.J. Palladino



Songwriter Alan Bergman at the Lobero lan Bergman performs alone, but his wife, Marilyn Bergman, doesn’t mind.“There are one or two of the songs she likes to sing, but that’s all. Never in public. She’s fine with me being up there.” Of course, by songs he means their songs, the great tunes that he and his better half wrote together: big, famous numbers like POWER COUPLE: Alan Bergman “The Way We Were” and (left) and his wife, Marilyn Bergman, “The Windmills of Your work at the piano. Alan will perform Mind.” They even wrote an evening of music at the Lobero the theme music for the on May 17. classic TV show Maude (“Isadora was the first bra burner”). And Alan is first to admit he couldn’t have done it without her. “We’ve been working together since, well, let’s just say for 58 years.” Alan will share the fruits of his half century of marital bliss and musical collaboration with the Lobero audience next Saturday night, and Marilyn will be out in the house.“Six hundred seats,” he said.“Do you think people will come?” Alan and Marilyn weren’t always together, though they should have been. “We went to the same high school in Brooklyn, though we didn’t meet until we came out to California,” he said.“In fact, Barbra Streisand went to the same school, too. There must have been something in the water.” Much of the Bergmans’ success is directly linked to Streisand, including “The Way We Were,” as well as the music for Yentl, but Alan admits that there’s something almost clichéd about Brooklyn as musician breeding ground. “I’ll tell you one thing, though: If you grew up Jewish in those days, you took piano lessons whether you wanted to or not,” he laughed. Alan came out to UCLA and studied with the great Johnny Mercer, who wrote “Too Marvelous for Words,” among many, many others. He and Marilyn began writing in the 1950s. “At first, I wrote music and lyrics, but later we worked with composers. I never had the ego to do that,” he said. “Besides, we prefer to write for a melody.” Like many other songwriters, the Bergmans think poems and lyrics are two different things. Alan won’t hear of much overlap between his own work and W.B. Yeats, laughing loudly at the suggestion. “But there are song lyrics that are very poetic.” But let’s take “Windmills of Your Mind,” as a kind of argument: “Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own / Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone / Like a door that keeps revolving in a half-forgotten dream.” Bergman chuckled a little, hearing it read out loud. “You know it was for that great movie,” he said, referring to The Thomas Crown Affair. “And the director was great, too. Norman Jewison — he had the scene where Steve McQueen is flying his glider around, and he’s just planned the robbery. It was supposed to be a song about anxiety, and so we got a lovely melody from the composer Michel Legrand, who was also a dramatist. And we thought, anxiety is circular, so we wrote about circles, made it baroque,” he said. “The melody and the function of the song underline the fact that anxiety is circular.” The Bergmans, who are poets, are also still working, thank you very much. They just got back from Washington, D.C., where they lobbied Congress for artists’ rights in an era of downloads and YouTube. Alan loves to perform and never gets nervous beforehand, even though he started his cabaret career late. “I worry about my voice but never about the songs,” he said. “They’re strong.” The duo is still writing, too, and, like always, writing together. Currently the pair is working on a revival of a musical they originally wrote for television called Ballroom and a show for the Los Angeles Geffen Playhouse.“People ask me why we are still working,” said Bergman. “But why wouldn’t we? If you are lucky enough to love what you do, and then to do it with someone you love, what can be better than that?”

THE POWER OF SONG: Speaking of Goleta, music, and youths, this Sunday, May 18, at the Deckers Outdoor Corporation Headquarters (ď&#x2DC;žď&#x2DC;žď&#x2DC;šď&#x203A;&#x153; Hollister Ave.), the lovely folks at AHA! will host a concert for its after-school Sing It Out students. Every spring, the nonproďŹ t conducts the Sing It Out mentoring program, which encourages teens to build character, work together, and grow socially and emotionally through music. This time out, the group is being led by sisters and singer/songwriters Tina and Laura Schlieske, both of whom are accomplished music makers in their own right. Tina is the gravelly voiced powerhouse at the helm of Tina and the B-Sides; Laura, a longtime Santa Barbara staple you may recognize from the group Area ď&#x2DC;˝ď&#x203A;&#x153;. And together, the siblings make some seriously sweet music that seems perfectly suited for the Sing It Out kids. The show takes place at 7:30 p.m. It will be preceded by a reception from 5:30-7 p.m. For tickets and info, visit ALSO THIS WEEK: Santa Barbara folkies Ghost Tiger headline a beneďŹ t concert for the new dance education program Library Dances on Sunday, May 18, from 4-6 p.m. The newly launched endeavor is designed to allow students and pro dancers to collaborate on and create literature-based dance works (the ďŹ rst performance is May 27 at San Marcos High). As for the kickoďŹ&#x20AC; beneďŹ t, a $20 ticket gets you food, drink, dance, access to a silent auction, and a live set from the band. For info, visit On Saturday, May 17, R&B soulstress Mila J takes the stage at Velvet Jones (ď&#x2DC;źď&#x2DC;şď&#x2DC;ť State St.) supporting Ty Dolla $ign, and while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll gladly sing Tyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s praises, this night may belong to Miss J. A young, stunning, and feisty presence, Mila is sure to bring equal parts sultry swagger and imposing vocal chops to her performance. And for a town that so rarely hosts strong female hip-hop ďŹ gures, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly something to head out early for. The show starts at 8 p.m. Call â&#x2013; 965-8676 or visit for tickets and info.

FIELD DAYS: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too often I get nostalgic for college. The all-nighters, crap housing, and copious consumption never really were my â&#x20AC;&#x153;thing.â&#x20AC;? Still, every spring I feel a little twinge of wistfulness for my days at UCSB and, more speciďŹ cally, the crazy levels of hype that existed around Extravaganza. The annual year-ending, Associated Studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;sponsored mini music festival always felt like the ultimate college concertgoing experience. The headliners were festival-worthy names, the product of a hefty lock-in fee and almost a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of student planning. The event stretched all day long. The day was almost always sunshine ďŹ lled. Did I mention the venue was also walking distance from my and all of my friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; respective houses? This Sunday, May 18, the Extravaganza monster rears its tempting head for the 36th year in a row, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the ďŹ rst to say that 2014â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crop of AS Program Board planners knocked it out of the park. Yes, Diplo is headlining. And yes, the bass is probably going to shake the ground all the way to D.P. But long before that happens, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good reason to show up early. Isla Vista loveables Yancellor Chang and T-Fresh kick things oďŹ&#x20AC; in the afternoon. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be followed by R&B songstress JhenĂŠ Aiko, rising hip-hop heavyweight Chance the Rapper, and L.A.-born harmony-rocking megawatts Local Natives. And yes, I know that much like Coachella, the idea of attending is far dreamier than actually braving the throngs of screaming, day-drunk masses. But everybody needs their fantasies, right? Extravaganza takes place in UCSBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Harder Stadium this Sunday starting at 1 p.m. The event is open to students only. Attendees must have a valid UCSB ID to enter. For info, visit

WATER WORLD: A barge-mounted excavator hammers away at Glines Canyon Dam in a scene from DamNation.


Award-Winning Documentary DamNation Comes Home by Ethan Stewart


here are good movies, there are bad movies, and then there are movies that matter. DamNation is a movie that matters. An eco-activist documentary with a refreshingly aggressive and law-breaking bend, this new film — made possible thanks in large part to the folks from Patagonia — introduces viewers to one of the most overlooked evildoers in the modern world’s assault on Mother Nature: dams. There’s no doubt that dams have served many important roles over the years, from preventing floods and providing power to storing drinking water and making urban growth possible in remote places. But this “progress” has also come at a very steep price. With a blend of history, face-melting nature cinematography, and a dash of Edward Abbey–style criminal mischief, DamNation lays bare this truth in a way that is educational, entertaining, and, perhaps most importantly, inspirational. It is impossible to separate the story of dams from the story of America in the 20th century. Building riverarresting structures, be they public or private projects, was a critical part of our nation’s rebound from the Great Depression, as well as our domestic World War II–motivated manufacturing efforts and, in the years after, our need to meet ever-expanding energy needs. In fact, some 75,000 dams at least three feet tall exist in the U.S. today, more than 30,000 of which were built between 1950-1970. And, while these structures were certainly erected with the greater good in mind, they all share one inconvenient truth: They drastically change the way a river behaves. When you consider the fact that rivers are the proverbial lifeblood of our planet and that various critters call it home, this defining characteristic becomes a potentially insidious and deadly bottom line for fisheries, watersheds, ecosystems, and native ways of life. “A damn is to a river what a coal-fired power plant is to air quality,” explains Matt Stoecker, a restoration biologist based here on the South Coast who, along with Patagonia’s patriarch Yvonne Chouinard, produced the film. A graduate of UCSB, Stoecker, who has been in the trenches of creek and steelhead-trout habitat restoration here in Santa Barbara County for the past decade and a

half, came up with the idea for DamNation while attending an environmental film festival in Nevada City with Chouinard back in 2011. Both blissfully addicted fly-fishing nuts with track records of big-picture conservation/restoration efforts, the duo recognized the powerful storytelling opportunity that was setting up that year, thanks to the planned removal that year of two very large dams in the Pacific Northwest: the Glines Canyon Dam of the Elwha River and the Condit Damn on the White Salmon River. If they acted fast, not only could they record these historic restoration-motivated destruction efforts, but they could also document the radically rapid rebound that occurs in nature when a long-stifled river is set free. Filmmakers Travis Rummel and Ben Knight, the latter also providing the movie’s narration, were enlisted, and the adventure began. Anything but predictable, DamNation is an ambitious and wide-ranging film that explores the evolution of our nation’s relationship to dams and the impacts this relationship has on our natural world. Incredibly charismatic and colorful characters from the fight to protect rivers, like Mikal Jakubal and Kate Lee (the former being the dam-rappelling graffiti artist responsible for giant protest murals on some of the West’s most well-known dams in the 1990s), share the screen with hydropower supporters and sweeping nature shots of rivers, rushing waters, spawning salmon, exploding dams, and landscapes both wild and conquered. The end result is a well-balanced and visually arresting call to arms that has been taking the film festival circuit by storm since premiering in March at the SXSW Film Festival and winning the coveted Audience Choice Award. As Knight puts it in the film’s opening minutes, “Knowing what I know now, it is impossible for me to look at dams the same way ever again.”

Road Movie Locke. Tom Hardy, Olivia Colman, and Ruth Wilson star in a film written and directed by Steven Knight. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino


teven Knight’s one-character film sounds like a gimmick, but for those who enjoy offbeat movie experiences, who can watch a cinematic car ride and not automatically expect a chase scene, this is a brainier kind of road trip — a night road leading into human truths. The idea is simple: A man named Locke gets into his car somewhere about 90 minutes outside London, starts his motor, turns on his Bluetooth, and has a series of life-changing phone conversations in the time it takes him to reach the hospital where a child he has fathered is due to be born.

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): When the path ahead divides in two, Aries, I am hoping you can work some magic that will allow you to take both ways at once. If you do master this riddle, if you can creatively figure out how to split yourself without doing any harm, I have a strong suspicion that the two paths will once again come together no later than August 1, possibly before. But due to a curious quirk in the laws of life, the two forks will never again converge if you follow just one of them now.

(June 21 - July 22): “If we want the rewards of being loved,” says cartoonist Tim Kreider, “we have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known.” How are you doing with this trade-off, Cancerian? Being a Crab myself, I know we are sometimes inclined to hide who we really are. We have mixed feelings about becoming vulnerable and available enough to be fully known by others. We might even choose to live without the love we crave so as to prop up the illusion of strength that comes from being mysterious, from concealing our depths. The coming weeks will be a good time for you to revisit this conundrum.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): “It isn’t that I don’t like sweet disorder,” said English author Vita Sackville-West, “but it has to be judiciously arranged.” That’s your theme for the week, Libra. Please respect how precise a formulation this is. Plain old ordinary disorder will not provide you with the epiphanies and breakthroughs you deserve and need. The disorder must be sweet. If it doesn’t make you feel at least a little excited and more in love with life, avoid it. The disorder must also be judiciously arranged. What that means is that it can’t be loud or vulgar or profane. Rather, it must have wit and style and a hint of crazy wisdom.

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): In Raymond Chandler’s pulp fiction novel Farewell, My Lovely, his main character is detective Philip Marlowe. At one point Marlowe says, “I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun.” In accordance with your astrological omens, Capricorn, I’m asking you to figure out how you might be like Marlowe. Are there differences between what you think you need and what you actually have? If so, now is an excellent time to launch initiatives to fix the discrepancies.



(July 23 - Aug. 22): There’s a piece of art on the moon: a ceramic disk inscribed with six drawings by noted American artists. It was carried on the landing module of the Apollo  mission, which delivered two astronauts to the lunar surface in November 1969. One of the artists, Leo maverick Andy Warhol, drew the image of a stylized penis, similar to what you might see on the wall of a public restroom.“He was being the terrible bad boy,” the project’s organizer said about Warhol’s contribution. You know me, Leo. I usually love playful acts of rebellion. But in the coming weeks, I advise against taking Warhol’s approach. If you’re called on to add your self-expression to a big undertaking, tilt in the direction of sincerity and reverence and dignity.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): I have three sets of questions for you, Scorpio. First, are you anyone’s muse? Is there a person who draws inspiration from the way you live? Here’s my second query: Are you strong medicine for anyone? Are you the source of riddles that confound and intrigue them, compelling them to outgrow their narrow perspectives? Here’s my third inquiry: Are you anyone’s teacher? Are you an influence that educates someone about the meaning of life? If you do play any of these roles, Scorpio, they are about to heat up and transform. If you don’t currently serve at least one of these functions, there’s a good chance you will start to soon.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): There’s a slightly better chance than usual that you will have a whirlwind affair with a Bollywood movie star who’s on vacation. The odds are also higher than normal that you will receive a tempting invitation from a secret admirer, or meet the soul twin you didn’t even know you were searching for, or get an accidental text message from a stranger who turns out to be the reincarnation of your beloved from a previous lifetime. But the likelihood of all those scenarios pales in comparison to the possibility that you will learn big secrets about how to make yourself even more lovable than you already are.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): I see you as having more in common with a marathon runner than a speed racer. Your best qualities tend to emerge when you’re committed to a process that takes a while to unfold. Learning to pace yourself is a crucial life lesson. That’s how you get attuned to your body’s signals and master the art of caring for your physical needs. That’s also how you come to understand that it’s important not to compare yourself constantly to the progress other people are making. Having said all that, Taurus, I want to recommend a temporary exception to the rule. Just for now, it may make sense for you to run fast for a short time.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): If you fling handfuls of zucchini seeds on the ground of a vacant lot today, you shouldn’t expect neat rows of ripe cucumbers to be growing in your backyard in a couple of weeks. Even if you fling zucchini seeds in your backyard today, you shouldn’t expect straight rows of cucumbers to be growing there by June 1. Let’s get even more precise here. If you carefully plant zucchini seeds in neat rows in your backyard today, you should not expect ripe cucumbers to sprout by August. But here’s the kicker: If you carefully plant cucumbers seeds in your backyard today, and weed them and water them as they grow, you can indeed expect ripe cucumbers by August. Homework: What’s the thing you lost that should stay lost? What’s the thing you lost that you should find?




(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Author Eva Dane defines writer’s block as what happens “when your imaginary friends VIRGO stop talking to you.” I suspect that something like this (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): The planet we live on is in constant has been happening for you lately, Pisces — even if you’re transformation. Nothing ever stays the same. To succeed, not a writer. What I mean is that some of the most relilet alone survive, we need to acclimate ourselves to the able and sympathetic voices in your head have grown relentless forward motion. “He not busy being born is quiet: ancestors, dear friends who are no longer in your busy dying” was Bob Dylan’s way of framing our challife, ex-lovers you still have feelings for, former teachers lenge.

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): According to my reading of the astrological omens, you should draw inspiration from this Chinese proverb: “Never do anything standing that you can do sitting, or anything sitting that you can do lying down.” In other words, Sagittarius, you need extra downtime. So please say NO to any influence that says, “Do it now! Be maniacally efficient! Multitask as if your life depended on it! The more active you are, the more successful you will be!” Instead, give yourself ample opportunity to play and daydream and ruminate.

Wine of the Week Carr Winery Santa Ynez Valley Sangiovese 2010 Santa Barbara County’s many microclimates offer ideal growing conditions for almost every wine grape imaginable, and Ryan Carr exploits that potential with this sangiovese, pulled from two small vineyards, Vandale and Fiore, in the middle of the Santa Ynez Valley. The wine is phenomenally smooth and flavorful, with tarry earth and licorice on the nose and spiced plum on the palate. It’s one of many to be found at the Urban Wine Trail’s upcoming Summer Celebration, May 30‑June 1, featuring a seminar, grand tasting, and all‑access passport to Santa Barbara’s urban wineries.
