The judges for the Independent Theater Awards enjoyed sharing their impressions of the 2013-14 season in a lively discussion before narrowing down the awards list to a final 20 lucky recipients. Each year, (from left) Philip Brandes, Tom Jacobs, Charles Donelan, Joseph Miller, and Barney Brantingham get together at the beginning of May to look back at the year that was and select those achievements they feel deserve recognition. With no nominees or categories, the Indy Awards are a bit different from the Tonys or the Oscars, but this reflects one opinion that’s shared by all the judges, which is that every one of our honorees is a first-place winner.

Impartial Analysis of County Ballot Measure M Prepared by Cars Are Basic (CAB) Measure M was placed on the ballot following a petition signed by the required number of voters. The proper implementation of Measure M would prevent county-owned public facilities from suffering further deterioration due to lack of proper maintenance, and would result in long term savings for county taxpayers. The measure would require the County Board of Supervisors to maintain all county roads, parks and buildings, in the same or better condition that existed at the time of Measure M's passage. Santa Barbara County Auditor-Controller Robert Geis has estimated the annual cost of funding the requirements of Measure M to be between $18 and $21 million dollars. The measure specifies no mechanism to fund the measure's requirement, and has left all decisions on funding up to the Board of Supervisors. Among the options the Board of Supervisors has to fund the requirements of Measure M are: 1) new voter approved tax revenue; 2) new voter approved debt; 3) improvements in efficiency of county government operations that will allow transfer of revenue to fund Measure M requirements; or 4) increasing the county tax base by eliminating government policies that inhibit business growth. CAB has determined the most effective mechanism of funding the requirements of Measure M would be through improving government efficiency. This is best achieved by eliminating improper conduct between county government and contractors/vendors. CAB has determined the requirements of Measure M can be fully funded by eliminating contract and bid improprieties in the county's $903 million dollar operating budget. Public safety services such as fire and police would be maintained at current levels. Increases in taxes and/or debt would be unnecessary. For Measure M to achieve its objectives proper implementation is necessary. At this time, with the present Board of Supervisors, proper implementation of Measure M would be a challenge. There is no indication the current Board has any intention to eliminate contract and bid improprieties in county government. There is also no indication that the current Board of Supervisors intend to eliminate policies that are detrimental to business growth. Proper implementation of Measure M would require a fundamental change in the attitude and priorities of county government. The Board of Supervisors would need to have a majority that would be willing to change how the government awards contracts and grants. The elimination of improper influences from special interest groups during contract negotiations should be paramount. Eliminating the practice of awarding contracts and grants based on political patronage, and eliminating contract cost overruns and padding should also be emphasized. This change in attitudes and priorities can only be achieved by county voters changing their representation on the Board of Supervisors. TM

Prop. 41: Yes


ou can’t save money without spending a little up front, and Proposition  — a k a the Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Bond Act — allows the legislature to sell $600 million in general obligation bonds to build new multifamily housing for homeless veterans. Given that all experts agree providing health and mental-health services to people on the streets is exorbitantly more expensive than providing it to those in fixed housing, passage of this urgently sensible measure should be a no-brainer. Given that California is home to one-quarter of all homeless vets in the United States, it’s even more justified. Lastly, the state legislature recently disbanded all California redevelopment agencies, the entities traditionally most responsible for funding such housing. With these agencies gone, Prop.  is needed to fill the breach.

Prop. 42: Yes


f you think it costs government a lot to keep public records open to the public and that the people’s business gets conducted by light of day, consider the alternative. Proposition  would amend the state constitution requiring that local government agencies maintain public records and open meetings regardless of the compensation level provided by the state legislature. To some extent, we sympathize with local governments. In response to the recent recession, the legislature has shifted the financial burden of state open-government laws onto the local agencies responsible with carrying them out. We get the gripe. Regardless, such laws are both essential and fundamental. As such, they cannot depend upon the precarious whimsy of funding formulas. ■

What the Frack? Energy Reps and Workers Blast New Initiative



ith climate change, earthquakes, and drought fears occupying the collective consciousness, one group’s efforts to ban fracking and other controversial enhanced oil-drilling techniques could not have come at a better time. Carrying the torch is a new grass-roots organization dubbed Water Guardians, which mushroomed from a small group into hundreds of volunteers in a matter of weeks. At Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, the county registrar announced that the group had gathered enough valid signatures to potentially ban “high intensity” operations on unincorporated land in Santa Barbara County. Undoubtedly caught off guard by the “spontaneous” effort, dozens of opponents of the initiative posed unanswered questions on Tuesday. But one point was clear: The ban is heading to the November ballot, barring the slim chance that the supes adopt it without alteration at a special meeting on June 13. Noticeably absent from the handful of supporters who commented on Tuesday were prominent Santa Barbara environmentalists. Representatives from Surfrider, the Environmental Defense Center (EDC), the Community Environmental Council (CEC), Channelkeeper, and other organizations did not speak in an official capacity. Katie Davis, who helped spearhead Water Guardians and has been involved with Santa Barbara chapters of .org and the Sierra Club, said many key enviros have been working behind the scenes. Some were among the hundreds who wore bright blue T-shirts and flocked to grocery stores and farmers markets in both southern and northern parts of the county to gather 16,000 valid signatures in just under a month — 3,000 more than required. All gatherers were volunteers, Davis said, and the group has stayed afloat from one $3,000 grant from the Fund for Santa Barbara and other small donations. Many people had doubts the organization would be able to gather enough signatures in such a short period of time, which, according to Davis, is another reason some of the bigger names have yet to officially come forward. A native of Summerland, Davis said she had never considered herself an “activist” but rather 12

a concerned citizen who slapped solar panels on her roof years ago and has long driven a white Nissan LEAF. Legally representing the Water Guardians is San Francisco–based attorney Rachel Hooper, who drafted the initiative. Hooper is with a firm that specializes in environmental law — Shute, Mihaly, and Weinberger LLP — and has decades of experience working on land-use permits. On Tuesday, several dozen opponents took to the podium. Many said they represented modest oil-industry employees; several claimed the

ban would destroy jobs in a robust industry; a number said it could be legally problematic. “Believe me, this is a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” asserted one opponent. Several others contended that “high intensity” is actually “high efficiency,” which decreases the cost of energy. “[I]t’s so misguided; I can’t stress it enough,” said former Carpinteria city councilmember Joe Armendariz. Though it’s become the buzzword, fracking isn’t currently occurring in the county. But another enhanced oil-extraction technique known as cyclic steam injection is happening, and it appears to be on the upswing. In the past 12 months, the county approved 239 new wells, and 166 of them will use cyclic steaming. Currently, hundreds of cyclic-steam wells are operating in the county, and according to the county’s Energy Division director, Kevin Drude, oil companies Aera Energy and ERG Resources are in the process of submitting formal applications for what will likely be hundreds of cyclicsteam wells. Claiming to represent the taxpayers, other opponents predicted the county will experience a legal nightmare if this ban passes. They contended landowners — individuals as well as

OUT IN FORCE: A grass-roots organization’s speedy efforts to place a fracking ban on the November ballot attracted dozens of critics to this week’s Board of Supervisors meeting.

oil companies — who own the mineral rights could sue the county because their property value diminished because of the ban. But Water Guardians attorney Hooper claimed constitutional takings cases are rare and very difficult to prove. Also, the initiative includes an exception: Property owners who demonstrate that the measure would constitute a taking could receive an exception from the supervisors. Exactly how this ordinance would be interpreted legally remains to be seen. Supporters have maintained that the ban would not impact current projects that have been approved and made “substantial progress.” Currently, at any given time, 2,600 oil wells are operating in the county, and a fraction of those use unconventional methods. But according to one interpretation of the initiative, most if not all wells at some time could be considered a “high intensity” operation because chemicals are used to maintain the wells. In response, Davis contended this ban merely focuses on well stimulation and does not prohibit well maintenance. Other opponents have contended that Senate Bill  — which passed last year and is currently studying the effects of fracking — will implement sufficient regulation by 2015, and Santa Barbara County is one of the only counties in the state to have an energy division to monitor oil operations. A handful of other counties and cities have issued moratoriums on fracking in recent months, and on Tuesday, Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors voted to prohibit fracking and all oil and gas development — largely as a preventative measure.

The preliminary hearing for Rebecca Sandoval — charged with second-degree murder and vehicle manslaughter for killing Buellton resident Linda Wall last December — revealed that she was allegedly high on nitrous oxide at the time of the collision. Four law enforcement officers gave testimony that in Sandoval’s December crash and a prior uncharged incident in October, “huffing” was a factor. In the current case, Sandoval pleaded not guilty and will be arraigned on 5/28. She faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted. A Santa Barbara judge has ordered the Boy Scouts of America to turn over 20 years of socalled “perversion files” involving molestation cases, a step that could make them evidence in a case to be heard in October. The case involves the molestation of a 13-year-old Santa Barbara scout. The molester pleaded no contest several years ago, but the current civil matter seeks punitive damages against the scouts. In direct violation of county policy, Sheriff’s deputies often leave their patrol cars idling when they’re parked, a practice that wastes more than $200,000 in gas and generates tons of emissions every year. Those are the findings of a Grand Jury report published this week that took the Sheriff’s Office to task for “unnecessary cost to the county’s taxpayers.” Sheriff’s officials responded that patrol cars are left idling because their computer systems need to be on at all times and take three to four minutes to reboot if turned off. The agency has 60 days to respond to the report.

At the height of their attack, more than 500 firefighters from agencies up and down the Central Coast descended on the area. They were assisted by a small fleet of helicopters and a DC-10 air tanker. Authorities estimated the cost to fight the 600-acre fire reached more than $860,000. Calls to Celite and Southern California Edison were not returned.

CITY Eloy Ortega, the CEO of the Bank of Santa Barbara since 2009, stepped down on 5/1, according to chief operating officer and interim CEO Joanne Funari. Although Funari declined to comment on reasons for Ortega’s departure, the change comes after an order from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in February for the bank to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act, fix “internal control weaknesses,” and implement a Secrecy Act compliance policy. Funari said the bank now has a “full compliance department.” The bank will be “looking at internal and external candidates” to permanently fill Ortega’s position, Funari said.

Hotter Heads Prevail


NO LOVE LOST: Supervisors Peter Adam (left) and Salud Carbajal exchanged sharp words over county maintenance costs.

USE A HOSE, GO TO JAIL: With the Stage II drought declaration, city residents will risk fines up to $250 if they use hoses like this one without nozzle attachments that restrict the flow.

In a surprise to no one, this week’s discussion by the Board of Supervisors on the maintenance needs of county-owned buildings and parks became a jab-filled debate about the controversial Measure M. After a presentation from staff that showed the county’s deferred maintenance backlog for buildings and parks hovers just under $84 million — lower than the $94 million previously projected — 1st District Supervisor Salud Carbajal uttered the phrase he’s used for months to describe Measure M: “the elephant in the room.” The initiative, championed by 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam and to be decided by voters on June 3, would force the board to annually allocate $18 million-$44 million for the upkeep of county-owned buildings, parks, and roads so as not to add the costs to the ever-growing backlog. (The backlog for roads clocks in at $257 million.) Opponents of the measure — which include Carbajal and supervisors Janet Wolf, Doreen Farr, and Steve Lavagnino — contend it would mean painful cuts to public safety and social services. Adam maintained on Tuesday that the supervisors don’t have an alternative to Measure M and addressed the voters directly. “Unless you vote yes on this thing, it’s not going to happen,” he said. “We’re going to kick that can down the road here forever and ever, amen.” But Carbajal — who suggested that Adam’s goal with the ordinance was to “bankrupt the county government” — resented Adam’s notion that the board was feigning a last-minute concern over maintenance needs, citing the board’s decision to provide an extra $2 million to roads funding last year and pointing out the toll the recession took on the budget. “It’s not like we pooh-poohed this issue and then this measure came about,” Carbajal said, then speculating about Adam’s thought process. “There was a sense of, ‘Okay, I raised the urgency of this. Okay, you’re starting the conversation. You’re giving it serious consideration, but just in case, I’m going to ram this down your throat with this measure.’” Carbajal suggested a maintenance funding plan similar to that for the North County Jail, in which money is set aside incrementally; possible funding scenarios will be presented to the board during June’s budget talks. In August, the board will hear from staff — Lyz Hoffman about how to prioritize the 1,618 deferred maintenance projects.

Stage II Declared

COUNTY A bluffside cabana over Hope Ranch’s beach caught the attention of the California Coastal Commission last week, whose commissioner, Jana Zimmer, is appealing the County of Santa Barbara’s after-the-fact approval of work that was done to the building’s deck years ago. The Rice Cabana, which is owned by Lee and Julia Carr, who purchased it after the repairs were completed, was deemed a historic landmark in 2012, yet Zimmer’s appeal asserts that protected status shouldn’t trump the protection of coastal resources. It’s unclear what alternatives to approving the completed work exist, but the commission will be giving a top-down analysis in the weeks to come. The gaudy Montecito mansion featured in the 1983 gangster flick Scarface (pictured) is now on

sale for $35 million. Surrounded by more than 10 acres of gardens, the nearly 10,000-square-foot estate at 631 Para Grande Lane was designed by architect Bertram Goodhue in 1906; its most recent owner was Russian billionaire Sergey Grishin, who bought it in 2009. It was listed for rent in 2012 for $30,000 a month. The four-bedroom, nine-bathroom estate — called El Fureidis, which loosely translates to “Tropical Paradise” — is also known for growing rare palm trees for Disneyland. Santa Barbara County projects a $905 million budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year, with slight increases in revenues and expenditures from the current fiscal year; officials cont’d page 14 

hile the Santa Barbara City Council did not officially decree that the only good lawn is a dead one, it took a definite step in that direction this Tuesday, declaring a Stage II drought emergency. In fact, acting city water czar Josh Haggmark declared, “Short term, the best thing is to let lawns die. Let them go.” Under the new Stage II rules, fines as high as $250 per offense can now be imposed on residents who water their lawns during daylight hours, hose down their sidewalks, or use a hose without a flow-control nozzle. In addition, the council embraced a new rate structure designed to punish water customers who use more than what’s required for basic bathing, flushing, and drinking. The new restrictions were imposed only after previous efforts to elicit voluntary reductions of 20 percent did not pan out. As a result, low water users will see a slight bump of 81 cents in their water bills. Moderate users will experience a $10 monthly increase, and heavy users will be charged $130 more a month. If these measures don’t achieve their desired effect, Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss wondered, what is Haggmark’s Plan B? “Flush your toilet once a week?” he asked. Councilmember Bendy White expressed concern the higher rates were “a little gentle,” but he said they could always be raised later if need be. Based on his experience in the last drought, he said, new rules can generate enforcement nightmares.“The regulatory side of this is a bummer,” he opined,“and it doesn’t generate the same spirit.” The council’s action took place just one week after Santa Barbara County withered under a record-setting heat wave. During its peak, Lake Cachuma — the South Coast’s major water supply — lost 54 acre-feet of water a day. Typically at this time of year, evaporation claims only half that. Governor Jerry Brown blamed climate change, noting how the drought has sparked an unprecedented eruption of wildfires. In the first five months of 2014, he said, California has experienced 1,800. Normally, there are 800 in an entire year.

The severity of the drought — caused by three of the consecutive driest years on record — helped persuade even the most reluctant of water districts making up the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board (COMB) to agree to a 55 percent reduction in water deliveries effective October 1. As a result, the districts will have to make do with deliveries of about 11,500 acre-feet of water next year instead of 25,700. There wasn’t a whole lot of choice, said Tom Fayram, head of the county Flood Control District and Water Agency. “We could use it all up this year and pray to God it rains,” he said. “Or we could cut back use so that hopefully we might have a little left by 2016.” COMB member agencies also just signed a contract to spend up to $6 million to pay a private contractor to design and build a new pump station and barge if and when Lake Cachuma drops so low that water has to be pumped up to get into the delivery tunnels. That’s nearly 10 times more than the district spent during the drought 19 years ago to accomplish the same objective. But COMB director Randy Ward said the project envisioned today is much different than its predecessor. He noted the cost of installing new electrical wires to power the barged pump is nearly $750,000 and that the price of electricity alone could be $40,000 a month. If all goes as planned, Ward said the new pumping facility should be ready by September 19. The good news is the Central Coast Water Authority (CCWA) — the super agency responsible for the importation of state water to Santa Barbara County — has secured an additional 5,883 acre-feet of supplies. In addition, the February and March rains provided enough relief so that at least some deliveries — 5 percent of entitlements — can be made this year. Initially, the state water system was so stressed that its managers determined they could make zero deliveries, a first in the project’s history.“I’m not inclined to say ‘Hoo-hah! The pressure’s off,’” said CCWA chief Ray Stokes. “The situation’s still dire, but it’s eased up a bit.” ■ may 22, 2014




News of theWeek

ANOTHER ROUND: Deputy Chief Probation Officer Tanja Heitman (left) and Chief Probation Officer Beverly Taylor updated the supervisors on prison realignment.

Convict Carousel Continues The county’s Probation Department will supervise fewer convicts of a certain type at the same time the Sheriff’s Office will see more state prison inmates either placed in County Jail or monitored electronically. Those were two of the projections presented to the supervisors this week by Chief Probation Officer Beverly Taylor, who spoke at length about how Santa Barbara is faring as it goes into another fiscal year of AB 109, the state law implemented in 2011 that shifted responsibility for certain offenders from the state to the counties. The law deals with two types of inmates. One group is nonviolent, nonserious, non-high-risk sex offenders who, upon being released from prison, are now under the purview of county probation departments rather than state parole officers. The second group involves nonviolent, nonserious non-sex offenders who now serve their sentences in jails rather than prisons; their time can also include mandatory supervision. Santa Barbara County presently monitors 310 individuals in the first category and expects to oversee 262 in June 2015. The second category currently includes 231 people, but that number will jump to 354. Taylor mentioned $64 million in statewide cuts coming to AB 109 funding, but she said the county will supplement its $8.8 million chunk from the state with approximately $1.1 million in onetime funding leftover from previous years. The state’s reduction will mean one fewer deputy probation officer to monitor GPS inmates and thus a cap of 22 inmates eligible for that service. Even more so this year, the county wants to use its AB 109 money to connect inmates with reentry services (job training, housing, and MediCal) so that the inmates don’t end up back where they started. The county’s approach “has enabled us to stay well ahead of many other jurisdictions,” Taylor said, referring to how Santa Barbara has done better than other counties in taking advantage of split sentences and in the number of inmates who fail to report to probation — Lyz Hoffman soon after release.

released the recommended budget on 5/16. Plans include growing the rainy-day fund and directing more money to maintenance, with or without Measure M’s passage. The county’s workforce will likely grow by 115 jobs, most created by the Affordable Care Act and paid for with state and federal funds. Final budget hearings are scheduled for 6/9 and 6/11. The county’s unemployment rate has fallen to a level not seen since July 2008, before the Great Recession hit, according to the county’s Workforce Investment Board. Figures show that the unemployment rate in April was 5.4 percent, down from 6.8 percent in March 2014 and 6.3 percent in April 2013. Santa Barbara’s overall unemployment fares better than California’s (7.3 percent) and the country’s (5.9 percent).

BEST ‘Mister X’ Takes Stand HAPPY HOUR IN SB law & disorder

Former Gang Leader Testifies About Life on Streets and Behind Bars



rthur Nevarez, a 40-year-old former Eastside gang leader, testified as a witness on behalf of the City of Santa Barbara’s proposed gang injunction Tuesday, describing his life as a gang member, his many years behind bars, and the Mexican Mafia’s growing role in Santa Barbara affairs. Until he took the stand, Nevarez — facing a sentence of 87 years to life on charges of felonious domestic abuse — had been described throughout the trial by prosecuting attorney Hilary Dozer only as “Mister X.” Nevarez testified that at some point the cocoon of isolation surrounding Santa Barbara’s gang culture was breached and that the area came within the influence of both the Surenos — a regional gang — and the Mexican Mafia. He testified that the Mexican Mafia “claimed” Santa Barbara.“Santa Barbara is now spoken for,” He said. As a result, Nevarez also testified, gang-affiliated drug dealers have been

thing else to bolster his sense of the heightened threat posed by gangs and simultaneously to explain away the decline in related activity. Nevarez’s testimony appears to serve both functions. On the stand, he was composed, articulate, and compelling. His account reinforced last Friday’s testimony by Santa Barbara Police Detective Michael Epstein, who described confronting four active gang members in the past several weeks — on separate occasions — and asking why the streets had grown so quiet. One, Epstein stated, intimated that the gang injunction was responsible. While saying, “‘Tinct, tinct, tinct,’” Epstein recounted, the gang member pantomimed a stabbing motion. “I would infer there’s going to be some stabbings,” Epstein said of the encounter. Nevarez, who recently appeared in an antigang documentary produced by the Santa Maria Police Department, said he’s been out of custody for only five of the past 22 years. He opted to resign while awaiting reclassifica-

‘Santa Barbara is now spoken for.’ —Arthur Nevarez, testifying that the Mexican Mafia “claimed” Santa Barbara.

paying taxes to the Mexican Mafia, and some purposefully get arrested for minor offenses so they can distribute drugs in jail. He claimed such transactions generate $5,000-$6,000 a month in sales, of which onethird goes to the Mexican Mafia. Dozer cited the emergence of the Mexican Mafia in Santa Barbara as an important reason the city needs a gang injunction. It’s added a new element of entrepreneurial volatility and violence to a gang culture that’s otherwise been exclusively turf-based, he said. Nevarez has spent the past four-and-a-half years in County Jail, and after “resigning” from gang life two-and-a-half years ago, he’s been kept in protective custody. Since then, he’s testified as a witness in several trials against other gang members and has helped jail officials decode letters and other encrypted written communications inside and outside the jail. Since the injunction was proposed, Nevarez testified that the number of gang members booked on violent charges had conspicuously dropped. “Word went around jail that things should lay low,” he said. One of the challenges confronting advocates of the injunction — which now targets 11 adult gang members — is the sharp decline in violent gang crime since 2010. To approve the injunction, Judge Colleen Sterne must find that gangs constitute an abiding and intolerable nuisance in Santa Barbara and that traditional law enforcement efforts aren’t sufficient. If gang violence is dropping, Dozer needs some-

tion in the County Jail after participating in an assault there. He said he “manipulated” the system to get transferred to the County Jail from the High Desert State Prison in hopes of impressing gang leaders with the Surenos — a Southern California gang with major influence in correctional facilities and on the streets — as well as the Mexican Mafia. Nevarez acknowledged that in exchange for his cooperation, pending torture charges against him were dropped. With those charges dropped, he now enjoys an admittedly outside chance of winning an appeal on other charges and getting out at some point in his lifetime. Likewise, defense attorneys argued that because Nevarez has been locked up in protective custody the past twoand-a-half years, he lacks firsthand knowledge of contemporary gang life. Nevarez argued that as an interpreter of letters and “kites” written by gang members, he keeps current. After the hearing, defense attorney Tara Haaland-Ford commented,“The gang injunction doesn’t target the Mexican Mafia. To the extent the Mexican Mafia is involved in Santa Barbara, it’s not going to address the Mexican Mafia.” When the gang injunction was first proposed more than three years ago, 30 alleged gang members — “the worst of the worst,” according to Santa Barbara Police Chief Cam Sanchez — were named. Just weeks before the injunction trial started, 19 of those 30 were dropped from the lawsuit. The trial is expected to continue through the rest of the week. ■ may 22, 2014

Green Light to Drill on Vandenberg

A highly anticipated assessment that clears the way for slant drilling from Vandenberg Air Force Base was released last week. Several years ago, plans to drill on the base were all but extinct after base commanders said such projects could interfere with base operations and compromise military missions. But the possibility of drilling was reopened last fall when Vandenberg announced the Air Force Civil Engineer Center would conduct a study to determine if the positives (economic) outweighed the negatives (environmental risk). The two-page executive summary gives the green light for slant drilling, though key details remain hazy. The person happiest with the preliminary findings is probably Sunset Exploration founder Robert Nunn, who, in partnership with ExxonMobil, has pushed to tap the offshore Tranquillon Ridge field for almost a decade. Though Sunset Exploration still has to beat out competitors in a bidding contest, the company undoubtedly has a huge head start. “It’s an exciting development,” Nunn said, adding that extended-reach drilling — in which “land-based” rigs drill vertically and then horizontally to reach oil reservoirs — leaves environmental habitats unharmed and has been safely used for decades in California. Not so, say Santa Barbara environmentalists who were frustrated with the results. “We would hope for a little more transparency,” said Environmental Defense Center attorney Linda Krop. Krop argued the public has been “left in the dark,” and this brief summary lacks specifics such as the locations — and number — of the drilling sites. Further, Vandenberg is largely undeveloped and “one of the most important environmental areas on the planet,” affirmed Krop. Also seriously concerned with the release is Congressmember Lois Capps, who has long opposed new offshore drilling projects. “While I have not yet reviewed the report in detail, it is clear that the Air Force’s Opportunity Assessment released today opens the door to new drilling along our coast,” Capps said in a statement. “I will continue to follow this closely and actively engage the Air Force to highlight these concerns and ensure that input from local stakeholders is properly and fully considered throughout — Kelsey Brugger this process.”

Tea Partyer Hits Hindu Rival over Islamic Law

WHY IT MATTERS: At first glance, the Kashkari-Donnelly matchup is simply a campaign clown show of scarce importance beyond the entertainment value to be derived by journalists and others with barren lives. As a political matter, however, the intraparty feud is significant in reflecting the national conflict between establishment Republicans, traditionally in the cultural and intellectual mainstream of the country, and the more extremist Tea Party, which, since the first days of President Obama’s presidency, has pushed the GOP further and further to the right, to the point where the fundamental value of political compromise (let alone science) carries little weight. That’s why former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice last week became the latest member of the Republican elite class to endorse Kashkari, a former investment banker who ran President Bush’s financial bailout program. Also joining Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, and Representative Darrell Issa was former governor Pete Wilson, who expressed his support for Kashkari by denigrating State Assemblymember Donnelly in unusually harsh language for a party elder: “Keeping public focus on the real and important issues facing California will require a candidate who does not have to defend Tim Donnelly’s bizarre votes and statements or his irresponsible personal behavior,” Wilson said in a written statement. “With Tim Donnelly on the ballot, it would be a losing campaign, risking injury to our party and our state and to other Republican candidates who deserve to win.” If Donnelly becomes Brown’s reelection opponent by finishing second in the balloting for governor on June 3, Wilson and other California Republicans worry that the state GOP’s hemorrhage of registered voters, now just 28 percent of the electorate, will accelerate.



hat two AM-radio right-wing loudmouths hosted the only debate between the leading Republican contenders to challenge Governor Jerry Brown is testimony to what a tarnished booby prize the GOP nomination has become. Last week’s face-off between establishment entrant Neel Kashkari and Tea Party contestant Tim Donnelly took place on The John and Ken Show, an L.A. drive-time blabberfest hosted by two Limbaugh wannabes. Moments before airtime, they marked the gravity of the occasion by seating and dressing up a skeleton in a shirt and tie to represent the Democratic incumbent, to the great amusement of several hundred folks on hand to watch the historic event. “Tim, to be direct,” Kashkari said, in the most splenetic exchange of the “debate,” interrupted by frequent commercial breaks,“in the last few months, you’ve managed to denigrate Latinos, African Americans, Jews, Muslims, Hindus.” “Go home!” bellowed one lout in the audience, dominated by Donnelly supporters. The Party of Lincoln indeed.

Learn more at: Or call: (805) 568-3566 ONE-MAN SHOW: Tim Donnelly, a Tea Party member running for governor, has rankled and alienated a number of his fellow Republicans. DONNELLY DEMAGOGUERY:

Feeding Kashkari’s debate argument about offending minorities, Donnelly in recent weeks not only became the only member of the Assembly to vote against a ban on state-run souvenir shops selling Confederate memorabilia but also compared President Obama to Hitler and Stalin because of his gun-control policies. This followed his earlier participation in inflammatory demonstrations by a Minuteman group against illegal immigrants, his arrest at an airport with a loaded handgun, and his violation of his probation in that matter by firing weapons at a gun show. It’s notable, however, that Wilson and several others did not speak out until Donnelly posted an item on his Facebook page accusing Kashkari, a Hindu, of seeking to impose sharia, Islamic religious law, on the U.S. because he spoke at a 2008 educational conference, sponsored by the Treasury Department and Harvard University, to discuss banking laws in Muslim countries. “This type of stupidity disqualifies Tim Donnelly from being fit to hold any office anywhere,” said Rep. Issa, an Arab American, in a characteristically understated criticism. Donnelly, who has since removed the Facebook post, insists that it was legitimate to raise questions about Kashkari’s views on sharia: “This is a barbarous form of law,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle.“Why would we want to be compliant with anything sharia?” The raft of Kashkari endorsements, which came as public-opinion polls, showed him well behind Donnelly in a field where not one-fifth of voters know anyone but Brown. Donnelly continues to scrap for campaign money, however, while Kashkari has raised $1 million from others and kicked in $2 million of his own. BOTTOM LINE: To Donnelly, this serves a

narrative of himself as the fighting underdog of the people, shunned by the tax-, abortion-, and gay-loving elitists intent on restricting guns. “I’m a threat to the country-club Republicans,” he said. “I’m a danger because I might bring a little more country into the club.” ■

Good Man, Happy Dog

IT’S NOT POLITICAL, IT’S PERSONAL: If Sue Grafton — famous for her long-running series of alphabetized mysteries set here in Santa Barbara — were to focus her writerly ministrations on 4th District County Supervisor Peter Adam, she could call it M Is for Molotov Cocktail. Or perhaps, A Is for Adam Bomb. Either would

work. Both are accurate. Say what you want about Adam — and most people do — the man knows how to shake things up. Adam is most immediately known for the singular outburst of facial hair that commandeers the upper hemisphere of his face. It’s way too sprawling to be defined as mere mustache, but way too northerly to be called a beard. You could describe them as “mutton chops,” but only if the sheep in question had been genetically modified. They, like Adam himself, serve as a weird Rorschach test, perpetually posing the same vexing question: “What is it?” Adam was Tea Party long before the Tea Party ever invented itself and got hijacked by Big-Monied schemers, phlegmatic poseurs, and conniving opportunists. Peter Adam is a truebelieving, anti-government crusader and radical minimalist who got elected so that he — like the biblical strongman Sampson — could bring the entire apparatus of county government crumbling down upon itself. What distinguishes Adam is how fast he’s moved and how clever he’s been. Unlike other right-wing firebrands, Adam has not been content to merely talk a good game; he plays one, too.

Exhibit A is Measure M — his brainchild — the ingeniously deceptive and sweet-sounding ballot measure county voters will decide upon this June. Put crudely, Measure M is the stick of dynamite Peter Adam strategically inserted up the rectum of county government, and he’s now asking voters to light the fuse. I don’t care how fast you think you can run; it’s not remotely fast enough. When that thing blows, it will be raining body parts all over the county, and there’s no umbrella structurally sound enough to keep you dry. Let me explain. Measure M would require county government to spend whatever it takes to keep the network of county-owned roads in at least as good a condition as they now are. Forever. Likewise with county parks and buildings. How could anyone argue with that? After all, isn’t local government supposed to be all about fixing potholes? The real answer to that question, I hate to say, is yes, but no. The real job of county government is a whole lot of things, pothole fixing being just one of many. The rub here is that it’s estimated Peter’s Pothole Jihad will cost about $20 million a year, which is roughly one-tenth of the money over which the supervisors have any discretionary say. That may not sound like a lot, but when you consider that public safety — that’s law enforcement, the jail, and fire protection — already has dibs on 60 percent of all discretionary dollars, it’s actually a lot. And that doesn’t even include the additional $20 million a year it will cost to run Bill Brown’s

new North County jail. And to date, we still don’t know the annual operations price tag for Brown’s new anti-recidivist wing of the new jail — dubbed “Hugs for Thugs” by law-n-order types. With so few discretionary dollars not already spoken for, does it make a lick of sense to sacrifice county environmental-protection programs, social services, and mental-health care — to name just a few — to maintain the county’s backcountry roads that relatively few county residents actually drive? Last I looked, they have a whole lot of poor people up in North County who desperately need county social services. Maybe that’s why 5th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, a wisecracking conservative, has come out so emphatically against Measure M even though he and Adam tend to agree on most board votes. Had Adam identified a new funding stream to help pay for all this infrastructure maintenance, perhaps Measure M would have been less disruptive. But he didn’t. And that may be just the point. Naturally, there’s no shortage of conspiracy theories going around, and naturally, I’m inclined to believe them all. For starters, Adam’s chief nemesis on the board of supervisors, Salud Carbajal, claimed at this week’s hearing that Adam told him point-blank that Adam was trying to “bankrupt” county government. As strategies go, it may be effective, but it’s hardly original. For years, Republicans in Sacramento talked openly of “running government off a cliff ” and did just that. This might explain

why party registration in California is at an all-time low. The other theory is that Measure M would create such a desperate demand for new revenues that the county supervisors would be forced to start approving new oil development to tap the new taxes. That might explain why David Lee Pratt of Santa Maria Energy — yes, he is a Lee — donated $20,000 to Adam’s campaign. To the extent such thought is actually entertained, it transcends the delusional and ascends into the realm of clinical hallucination. Did anyone notice how blazingly, amazingly fast a new group of political novices sprang up and — working outside the mainstream of Santa Barbara’s environmental establishment — collected 20,000 signatures to put an antifracking initiative on the November ballot? One month! Without delving into the merits of the measure, this qualifies as Olympic record. If new oil development is the Holy Grail animating Adam and Pratt, I’d suggest they launch an expedition for the Pot-o-Gold at the end of the rainbow instead. I can look at a GLOCK handgun and admire the ingenuity with which it’s been engineered. But that doesn’t mean I want to put it to my head and pull the trigger. If we approve Measure M, we may as well. And Sue Grafton will have to write another installment of her Kinsey Millhone series. It will be called S Is for Suicide. — Nick Welsh

Robert Studebaker Ogilvie

Robert Studebaker Ogilvie died peacefully in Santa Barbara at the age of , on May , , of a heart simply grown frail after a lifetime of wonderful travels, work and family adventures. Born and raised on a farm near Greeley, Colorado, Robert met his future wife, Lois Geer, while both attended the University of Colorado in Boulder. He earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering; she in English and literature. Robert’s career in the design, building and management of petrochemical fertilizer manufacturing plants took him, Lois and their two sons from the plains of Ohio, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas to the stimulating environs of Southern California, Puerto Rico, San Francisco, New York, and Miami. When their two boys had moved on to college and their own careers, Robert and Lois continued their adventures from homes in Malaga, Spain and Brussels, Belgium. He ended a long employment with EXXON after serving as its chief of environmental improvement initiatives throughout Europe and the Middle East. It was his most challenging role. Robert acquired his love and respect for the environment from his early years on the farm. His father, James Ogilvie, had once been the foreman on the sprawling Studebaker horse ranch in northern Colorado at the turn of the century. His father also taught Robert the secrets of the trout and the fly, which Robert taught to his sons and grandsons. There are few streams in the high Colorado Rockies that someone in the family has not explored. Robert and Lois settled in Santa Barbara in . As both were Colorado natives, they could not resist the additional acquisition of a place in Aspen, a place that would draw all of the family in both summer and winter for years to come.

Bill Yerkes 1935-2014


BY J O H N P E R L I N his year marks the 60th anni-

Solar Pioneer

versary of modern solar cells capable of converting sunlight into useful amounts of electricity, and the man most responsible for converting a space-based technology to needs on Earth was Bill Yerkes, a longtime Santa Barbara resident. Bill started his solar career back in the early ’70s with a company that manufactured solar cells solely for space. Then as now, solar cells powered most of our satellites, and life is unimaginable without the communication and navigation systems that depend on satellites. But Bill had a greater vision. Back when solar energy was only used in outer space, he wanted to bring it down to Earth. After the company he headed was acquired by Hughes Aircraft with the intention of focusing solely on satellites, Bill left and started over in a garage. Bill and his colleagues began to design solar modules that could use mass-production techniques to bring the price down from their astronomical perch. VISIONARY: While solar powered space missions, Bill Yerkes invented production techniques to get the price down to earth and Among the innovations he pioneered, put solar cells to work in third-world countries. Bill identified a solution to the costly approach for creating the electrical contacts for the wafers of silicon used in solar cells. He hit A good friend of Bill’s, Charlie Gay, who was head upon the technique of screen-printing, just like silkof R&D at ARCO Solar and led the company after Bill screening T-shirts. A special mix of silver flakes with left, tells a story about how Bill’s solar cells changed life glass powder formed the conductor and also adhered in remote Papua New Guinea that goes something like reliably. Bill chose tempered glass for the outer cover, this: Another of ARCO’s solar acquisitions, ECD, had a as it was robust, manufactured everywhere, and would consultant named Dave Adler, who loved to travel, says self-clean after a rain. The silicon cells were bonded to Gay. One of Adler’s adventures had been a trip to Stone the glass just as auto windshields are made, because Bill Age villages in Papua New Guinea, and the journey was had noticed that while car bodies rusted away in wreck- anything but easy. Starting off with an air flight on Air ing yards, the windshields still looked great, even after Niugini from Brisbane to Port Moresby, New Guinea, decades sitting outdoors.

When Adler at last modules to run the lights and foghorns on offshore oil approached the village, he could see children scramrigs.

this issue would believe claims that Supervisor Wolf doesn’t care about Goleta Beach or the park. Those claims are even less persuasive when they come from her opponent, who has a vested interest in trying to make her look bad and is struggling to find any facts to help him in that effort. But the facts are clear in Wolf’s position and voting record: On March 18, she led her colleagues in a 5-0 vote to maintain the current rock revetments to protect the beach and park. Supervisor Wolf cited the EIR (environmental impact report) repeatedly in her comments, saying: “I must look at the facts as they are presented to us in this EIR … ‘When considering the EIR analysis of the Project and alternatives, it is important not to apply general lessons regarding the often adverse effects of seawalls and revetments on beach erosion without considering the particular circumstances at Goleta Beach. … the existing revetments … are projected to be seldom exposed to wave action, at least through 2050. This is in marked contrast to many other revetments in Santa Barbara County … ’” Her comments also noted the board’s repeated allocation of resources to replace the sewage lift system and bridge and her own fight to resist the imposition of parking fees. As voters, we are tired of campaign rhetoric.

Keep Goleta Parking


Power Voter


ne of the ways the Independent Living Resource Center (ILRC) promotes independence and access for individuals with disabilities is by encouraging everyone to vote. But some in our community have become disillusioned by the broken promises and dishonesty exhibited by some elected officials. They believe that some leaders care more about corporations, who pour money into their campaigns, rather than everyday individuals. But all that doesn’t mean our vote doesn’t have power. If votes had no power, why are tough new voter laws being enacted in many parts of the country to restrict access to voting? The State of California is working to ensure that all polling places are accessible to individuals with a variety of disabilities. But locating and fixing all the barriers is a slow process, and people can call their local registrar of voters and report polling-place barriers. (Or call me at the ILRC, 963-0595 x105.) And once Election Day is past, we need to make sure the elected leaders make the changes we want, even if we didn’t vote for them. We have to put pressure on these people to act in our best interests. Remember, in California we can always recall the leaders who are not doing an effective — Jacob Lesner-Buxton, Community Organizer, ILRC job.

M Is for Hmmm


t least 7,700 new oil wells are proposed for Santa Barbara County that will require approximately one gajillion mile-tons of heavy truck traffic. Measure M is a preemptive tactic to obligate the county to maintain all the public roads being chunked-up by private enterprise. If your fillings get rattled out of your head on the way to the casino, it’s not Santa Maria Energy’s fault; it’s the dang county fighting fires and other frivolous stuff instead of greasing the skids for Peter Adam’s campaign contributors. If the Cato Institute’s Lanny Ebenstein joins the progressive-er wing of the County Board of Supervisors in opposition to M (he did! [independent .com/nomeasurem]), you know that it’s a bad ordinance.

— Dr. Martin & Marian Shapiro, Goleta


t a meeting of Goleta’s Economic Development and Revitalization Standing Committee, Mayor Michael Bennett stated the future Old Town Goleta should have all on-street parking eliminated and use existing parking

lots in a share arrangement with Goleta or be city-owned lots. Patrons would park and walk as in downtown Santa Barbara. I oppose any elimination of on-street parking on Hollister. Bennett understood the distinct disadvantage to many Old Town businesses with a customer base that won’t park and walk. Many are likely to move or go out of business. His said businesses will always come and go, but parking lots would attract new businesses that would do well in a park-and-walk situation, and they would, in fact, attract that type of business. Councilmember Jim Farr was in total agreement. I find this attitude disturbing and insulting. We are not downtown Santa Barbara, nor do most of us want to be. I spoke to Councilmember Paula Perotte, who is noncommittal. I spoke with Councilmember Roger Aceves, who does not agree with Bennett and Farr. He believes Goleta should support business. Goleta does not have Chapala or Anacapa Street nor the infrastructure surrounding Hollister to make parking lots feasible. I have collected over 2,000 signatures for Concerned Goleta Citizens in opposition to eliminating Hollister parking. If you agree, write, email, or phone Goleta City Council members. If you are outraged, vote them out of office in the next election. [More at independent — Phil Unander, Goleta .com/opinions.]

letters cont’d Monument will remain pristine and valuable resources for the communities that surround these amazing natural assets. Many communities in California have found that highlighting their proximity to protected wilderness benefits their economy, and Ojai is a prime example with its abundant equestrian trails and recreation-based businesses. Providing for wilderness experiences directly benefits retail businesses catering to the needs of wilderness seekers and other forest visitors. Companies and their executives value such amenities when they consider locating a business or are looking for a retreat or meeting venue. Our member businesses have a stake in protecting our community’s great quality of life, and we are grateful that you have taken this important step in protecting our public lands for generations to come. — Scott Eicher, CEO, Ojai Valley Chamber of Commerce

Risky Business


ecent news reports state PG&E was criminally charged with a dozen felony violations stemming from the natural gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno that killed eight people, injured many more, and destroyed 38 homes. Among the allegations were that PG&E “knowingly and willfully” failed to follow minimum safety standards. My question is, do we have a similar situation at Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant? David Lochbaum of the Union of Concerned Scientists stated PG&E has never met fire protection regulations at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant and that Diablo is at risk of fire from flammable materials. He says the risk of reactor meltdown from fire is 50 percent (also see Union of Concerned Scientists fire report website and sign their petition). Lochbaum also said that 75 percent of spent fuel is stored in dangerous spent-fuel pools, while only 25 percent is in dry casks in all U.S. nuclear facilities. The difference in radiation release is enormous and “criminally negligent.” He also talked about the risk of earthquake plus fire at the plant. He stated other plants with similar earthquake risks as Diablo have been shut down.

So, where do we go from here? I say it’s time to take all necessary action to prevent another San Bruno and, worse, another Fukushima. — Andrea Caulfield, Los Osos

eople often wonder why youth are homeless. No one reason fits all. Under the surface, some are fleeing poverty and the inability to find jobs, while others are victims running from family abuse or the foster system. These youth often struggle with substance abuse to cope with the unrelenting pressures of street life. Many have serious untreated mental-health disorders. Without a safe place to go, many join other young people on the road, where they are accepted by a network of peers. It’s a means of survival, because it is often not safe to be alone on the street. They are not traveling for fun. It often takes years for a homeless youth to decide to start working on transitioning off the street. For many, there is a comfort and freedom to being outside, which can lead to a lifetime of homelessness. I’ve learned that homeless youth do not respond well to penalties and are distrusting of authority and institutions that have repeatedly failed them. They cannot pay their fines. They are often accustomed to going to jail. The punishment of incarceration perpetuates their feeling of worthlessness and disconnection from society. As street outreach workers for homeless youth, my team helps connect youth with rehab/housing opportunities, family, mental-health supports, and educational/ vocational programs, offering alternatives to street life. This progress is something that takes time, community supports, and the assistance of a well-trained team. —Jaan Landheer, YMCA Youth and Family Services

Phantom of Fifth Avenue

of Fifth Avenue’s the catchy title of Meryl Gordon’s gossipy new bio of poor little rich girl Huguette Clark, subtitled The Mysterious Life and Scandalous Death of the late copper heiress. Scandalous death? That’s pushing it a bit, considering that Huguette apparently never had sex, took drugs, or killed anyone in a lover’s quarrel and was a recluse who lived quietly and died of un-scandalous natural causes at age 104 in 2011. That’s when the $300 million money grab began, no thanks to Huguette’s two conflicting wills and her battling distant relatives. New York author Gordon’s is the second book about Huguette, the first being NBC investigative journalist Bill Dedman’s authoritative Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune. Gordon interviewed many family members, and her account fleshes out much of went on in the life of a woman who in the Jazz Age was worth $50 million at age 22. But, alas, there were no affairs with dashing playboys, wild rides in Stutz Bearcats, or champagne at midnight at the Eiffel Tower for shy little Huguette. Her marriage was an unconsummated disaster, and two would-be romances faded like a summer sunset from her beloved Bellosguardo mansion high above Santa Barbara’s East Beach. But by all accounts,

RED: In 1958, artist Mark Rothko was offered

a $35,000 commission ($284,000 in today’s dollars) to paint murals in the new Four Seasons restaurant in New York. But realizing how pretentious the setting would be, he famously declared that he hoped the murals would “ruin the appetite of every son of a bitch who ever eats in that room.” Then Rothko gave back the money and never finished the project. This event forms the basis of John Logan’s tense play, Red, at the Ensemble Theatre’s New Vic, through June 1.

A BIG NIGHT Santa Barbara’s Theater Artists Celebrated

he nd Annual Independent Theater Awards gave many of the area’s actors, directors, and set and costume designers something to be thankful for, something to talk about, and something orange to take home and put on the shelf. Twenty-two of these lowercase-letter-i-shaped statuettes were awarded for work completed between May 2013 and May 2014, and the range covered was extraordinary. From PCPA in Santa Maria to the Rubicon in Ventura and from the ancient Greek tragedy of Sophocles to the contemporary dramas of David Lindsay-Abaire and Wal-lace Shawn, theater in our region continues to flourish. It was a big year for new developments such as the New Vic, Ensemble Theatre Company’s spectacular new home on Victoria Street, and the launch of The Santa Barbara Independent High School Musical Theater Awards, a competition and celebration that was held in late April. The Indys have featured entertainment in the past, but this was the first year in which the acts that performed were directly tied to the ceremony. Jenikka Nunag, the winner of Best Performer in a High School Musical in Ventura, sang “Just Around the Riverbend” from the Disney animated musical Pocahontas, and Camille Umoff, the winner of Best High School Musical Performer in Santa Barbara, sang “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” from Gypsy. The two young women will continue on in their pursuit of regional honors at the Jerry Herman Awards in Los Angeles on June 1, where they will compete for the title of Best Lead Actress in a High School Musical for Southern California. Winners there earn a shot at the Jimmy Awards, the National High School Musical Theater Awards sponsored by the Nederlander Organization and held at the end of June on Broadway. As always, the heartbeat of this big night resounded in the acceptance speeches. Tucker Smallwood, who won for his performance in Rubicon’s production of The Sunset Limited, took the opportunity to reflect on the extraordinary challenge he found in the role and on the fact that, although nominated for some important awards in the past, this was the first time he’d actually won in his long career. Nunag forged a bond with her audience by describing the way she discovered her vocation through musical theater, and Michael Morgan dedicated the award he won for his performance as Eurydice’s father in UCSB’s production of Eurydice to his brother, whose difficult relationship with a daughter taught him something important about fatherhood. Multiple award winners included Ensemble’s Good People, which won for Alicia Sedwick’s performance and for Jenny Sullivan’s direction; Out of the Box Theatre’s Next to Normal, which garnered honors for Deborah Bertling’s daring performance and Samantha Eve’s direction; Westmont’s The Pirates of Penzance; Lit Moon Theatre’s Hamlet; Genesis West’s The Designated Mourner; and Eurydice, which also won a nod to director Jeff Mills. After the last statue was handed out, the Museum of Natural History’s Fleischmann Auditorium turned into party central, as guests quaffed wines provided by Seth Kunin and enjoyed both light food and each other’s company. The show had gone on. ■ 26

The exhibit features more than 1,000 free-flying butterflies of 30 different species. Minne and her family went to the exhibit two days in a row and plan to return for Riley’s butterfly-themed birthday party. left: “The first day we got the bees, I must have spent hours watching them and learning their habits,” said Diane Brown, while standing outside her backyard beehives. Brown eliminated pesticides four years ago and transformed her garden into a safe haven for bees, butterflies, birds, and other pollinators after learning about the importance of bees in the ecosystem. “People say the phrase ‘busy as a bee,’ and it’s really true — they are so busy doing what they do, they never bother us. And we get honey out of it!” she added.

The Amala Foundation, based in Texas, focuses on working with international youth, refugees living inside the United States, and American students who want to discover their leadership abilities and do more for the world. Every year, the foundation holds a Global Youth Peace Summit, a weeklong program for about 70 kids from more than 20 countries. “The summit is an opportunity for youth from all over the world to come heal and share what’s happened in their life and learn the tools that they need to rise up as leaders in their own communities,” said Shauna Mistretta, codirector of the California Global Youth Peace Summit and director of the Kenya Global Youth Peace Summit. On May 28, a fundraiser will be held in Santa Barbara at a private home to support the Second Global Youth Peace Summit, which takes place in July in Foresthill, near Sacramento. Eighty percent of all those who attend the summit need scholarships, and several youth from Santa Barbara will be at the conference. The fundraiser will include a concert by musicians Todd Hannigan from Ojai and David Courtney from Santa Barbara, a silent auction with items from area businesses, and several Tickets are $33 and include international youth discussing their appetizers and wine. For experiences. The founder of the more information, conAmala Foundation, Vanessa Stone, tact Shauna Mistretta will also be in attendance. at 272-5267 or shauna@ Mistretta said that she hopes that the fundraiser will help people learn about “this incredible program that has the potential to create ripple effects around the world. The Amala Foundation is different from so many other nonprofits because it isn’t about foreign aid; it’s about direct healing for those who have been through traumatic events. It’s one of the most powerful things I have ever seen.” — Mckinley Krongaus

undreds gathered on a large lawn at The Biltmore on a recent Friday afternoon for a cause that remains dire in our community — the 500 children trapped in the foster-care system in the county. And about 150 of those are estimated to be 2 years old or younger. Dedicating the seeks last eight years Top-Notch to putting a dent into that figure Parents is Meichelle Arntz. Arntz’s first glimpse into the child-welfare system was as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteer several years ago. In court, she had represented two little brothers, who, after bouncing from one foster home to another — up to seven in one year, she speculated — suffered severe instability and attachment issues. So with a background in pediatrics, Arntz opened Angels Foster Care of Santa Barbara in 2006 to place very young children in stable homes; 153 babies have since been placed. Though foster parents in the public system can take in up to six children at once, Angels parents care for only one child or one set of siblings. Angels parents sometimes adopt the child, possibly eliminating them from the pool of available foster-care parents. “There’s always going to be a need,” said Holly Casady, who has a foster child, an adopted child, and two biological children. “Word of mouth is the best way to [spread awareness],” she added. “We knew we wanted to do this.” In the foster-care realm, the goal is always reunification between a child and his or her biological parents, a decision that’s ultimately up to a judge. Arntz explained that 79 percent of Angels parents adopt the first child in their home. Of the 36 who are ready for school, all but two were kindergarten-ready at age 5. (And the two started kindergarten the next year.) Arntz added that 100 percent of the children adopted were showing age-appropriate attachment behavior, she said. “It’s not like we’re just looking at stats. But good stats mean you’re impacting human beings,” she said, adding that Angels ensures kids stay in the home in which they are placed. “It sounds rational, but it’s not what has happened,” she said. Last year, Angels could not take in 32 babies because we were full,” said Arntz. “This keeps me up at night.” For more info about Angels, call 884-0012.

Zone 2, the fuel-reduction zone, extends from 70-100 feet (farther if you are on a slope or surrounded by thick vegetation) outward from the structure. Plants should be spaced far apart (minimum of 10 feet between the tops of trees) with all branches below 10 feet removed and all dead vegetation removed. If you can irrigate this zone as well, so much the better. Zone 3 encloses all the vegetation outside Zone 2. Remove dead or dying trees and shrubs and mow grassy areas. In all three zones, avoid planting highly flammable plants. Plants whose growth results in thickets of secondary, woody forms should be kept farther away from structures. Softer perennials, and especially those that don’t have aromatic foliage (a clue that they are full of flammable oils and resins), are obvious choices to plant in Zone 1.

Book Review

All the Presidents’ Bankers The Unholy Alliance Between Presidents and Bankers


alling a book a “tour de force” is a cliché, but every once in a while this overused phrase fits, and that is the case with All the Presidents’ Bankers by Nomi Prins. Consider what Prins has pulled off in this meticulously researched yet readable work (her fourth book about the U.S. financial system): nothing less than tracking the often unholy alliance between American presidents and bankers across a century of American history, two world wars, the Cold War, market booms, busts and panics, and bailouts funded courtesy of American taxpayers. From Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama, J.P. Morgan and Charles Mitchell to John Reed and Jamie Dimon, presidents and bankers have depended on one another to open foreign markets, finance wars, and ensure the U.S. dollar became and remained the world’s dominant currency. As Prins notes, “No other country on the planet is driven by such a critical symbiotic and costly relationship.” The titans of Wall Street and the occupant of the White House — regardless of political party — have been joined at the hip for decades, though, as in all marriages, there have been periodic spats. Teddy Roosevelt railed against the trusts and the concentration of wealth, but when the Panic of 1907 struck, TR tempered his attacks and stepped into line behind the bankers. During the Great Depression, Franklin Delano Roosevelt sounded a populist chord by castigating the power and privilege of the titans of finance and industry, but much of that ire was only for show. The key financiers of the time were FDR’s people — fellow bluebloods educated at the same universities, members in good standing of the same exclusive

clubs and social circles and often related by marriage. Eric Holder, the incumbent attorney general, has admitted that today — more than five years after the financial meltdown of 2008 — a coterie of American banks are simply too big, powerful, and interconnected to fail or jail. The irony is that the federal government was complicit in allowing banks to become behemoth in the first place. This fact may account for the haughtiness JPMorgan Chase chairperson Jamie Dimon displays when he testifies before Congress, but Dimon’s demeanor is hardly different than J.P. Morgan’s was when he testified before the Pujo Committee in 1912. Too big now, too big then. And that is Prins’s central point. American bankers are prone to crash the economy every few decades, either through excessive risk taking, outright fraud, or prosaic greed, and they know, from a century of experience, that when push comes to shove, the taxpayers will pick up the tab. After all, the bankers have friends in very high places. Prins sums it up this way: “Our choice is simple: Either — Brian Tanguay we break the alliances, or they will break us.” may 22, 2014

The Sting of the



don’t love baseball. And I feel bad about that. Some of the finest people I know — people who are undeniably more advanced human beings than I am — are wild for the game. They love that it’s not timed but rather over when it’s over; that it lets players of every shape and size be superstars; and that the object is more complicated than just putting a ball into a net, over a line, or through a hoop. The closest I ever came to loving baseball was a brief tenderness I had for its distinctive snacks. It was 1981, and Fernando Valenzuela was pitching for Los Angeles, Steve Garvey was playing first base, and I was mowing Dodger Dogs, Cracker Jacks, and ice cream on the blistering Loge level. Back then, I was a kid watching grown-ups play baseball. Recently I’ve revisited the sport as a grown-up watching kids play it, in Little League. But the new perspective hasn’t deepened my appreciation for our national pastime. In fact, it’s made me dread it. Each time a kid gets up to bat and strikes out — my son or someone else’s, on our team or the opposing one, doesn’t matter — it positively guts me. Hollows out my stomach like an inverted baseball cap or a stadium peanut being popped from its salty shell. Swing, miss! … Adjust stance. … Swing, miss! … Adjust grip. … Swing, miss! … Adjust self-image. It’s the awkward silences. The pained “You got this one, kiddo” or “Shake it off, son” lobbed from the stands. The dejected shuffle back to the dugout — shoulders slumped, head bowed. I can’t take it, I tell you. I look away, but I want to siphon the shame right out of their little dirtdusted bodies, hurl it to the ground, and beat it with the nearest bat. Or flog it with a long, skinny Dodger Dog. Yeah, you heard me. I want to be crazy like that. by Starshine I recognize that without failure there can be no success — but this is public failure. Sometimes repeated and sustained public failure. email: “We have a little guy on our team who sobs every time he strikes out — which is all the time,” says a mom I know. “It breaks my heart.” Friends assure me the experience is good for kids, that it prepares them for “striking out” in life — which we all do, and often. “It’s about practice, patience, and perseverance, which are important things about life to learn young,” insists my cousin, who played ball growing up and survived to become a doctor. “That, and not everyone can be the best at everything all the time.” It turns out that even Hall-of-Famers fail to get a hit 70 percent of the time. Why are we asking 8-year-olds to do the near impossible and to do it in front of dozens of spectating strangers who long to cheer a hit — even a small one? It took my friend Sarah Sinclair, one of those highly developed humans I told you about, to … ahem … drive the point home for me. She steps up to the plate. “Baseball is a sport centered on courtesy, integrity, perseverance, tradition, loyalty, and strategy,” she says, noting that her own son saw countless whiffs as a boy. “I cringed with every strike but soon realized he was getting so much more out of it than what I saw from the bleachers.” She swings. “He still says that walk back to the dugout is the longest walk in the world — but if you can handle that, you can handle any criticism or challenge. He graduates college this month, and I know the lessons he learned on the baseball field helped him accomplish all he has done. And all he will do.” And put it on the board, ladies and gentlemen. It’s a goner.

Kiraly, beginning his second full season as head coach of the U.S. women’s national team, has concocted a plan to take the program one significant notch higher than its best showings in more than 50 years of international competition: three silver medals and a bronze in the Olympic Games; two silvers and two bronzes in the World Championships; and a silver and two bronzes in the World Cup. “No gold,” said Kiraly, who won nothing but gold in his three Olympic appearances: in 1984 and 1988 with the U.S. men’s indoor team, and in 1996 on the Atlanta beach. Kiraly, 53, was the women’s assistant coach when they lost to Brazil in the gold-medal match of the 2012 London games, a repeat of the Brazilians’ victory in the 2008 final in Beijing.

CROSSING THE LINE: Taylor Phinney, the 23-year-old son of a veteran American cyclist and an Olympic speedskating gold medalist, roared down San Marcos Pass to finish the winner of Stage 5 of the Amgen Tour of California.

I suffer a lot.” Pain turned to joy when he approached the finish on Cabrillo Boulevard and knew he was going to secure the second stage win of his career in a major road race.“An electric shock runs through you, holding your arms up the last 100 yards,” he said.“To soak it all in is what I live for.” The overall winner after eight stages would be Britain’s redoubtable Bradley Wiggins, but it was young Phinney, one of the nicest guys you could find in any sport, who put an indelible stamp on the ninth Amgen Tour of California in Santa Barbara. BANQUET OF SUCCESS: Rick Olmstead, who was Karch Kiraly’s volleyball coach at Santa Barbara High, was

among seven inductees at the 47th Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Hall of Fame banquet Monday night. During his acceptance speech, he deemed Kiraly “the most selfmotivated kid I’ve ever been around.” Greatness also springs from supportive families and communities, a point that was brought up by every member of the new Hall of Fame class: Stefanie Christoferson, Megan Enyeart, Mike Fitzgerald, Lola Trenwith Georgi, Scott Winnewisser, and Joan Russell Price. COURT OF CHAMPIONS: It is no coincidence that world champions of volleyball, surfing, and water polo have come out of Santa Barbara, a playground of sand and water. But there is also a strong legacy of basketball here. Hoops junkie Curt Pickering has made that point by establishing the Santa Barbara Basketball Court of Champions. The inaugural class of 22 coaches and players will be honored on Sunday, June 1, at 6 p.m. at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort. These names will be familiar to area basketball fans, in many cases stirring vivid memories: Bill Bertka, Don Ford, Carrick DeHart, Ben Howland, Mark French, Jamaal Wilkes, Brian Shaw, Jerry Pimm, Holly Ford Emerson, Phil Patton, Jack Trigueiro, Andrew Butcher, Maury Halleck, Sal Rodriguez, Larry Crandell, John Moore, Don Volpi, Kirsten Moore, Erin Alexander Brown, Gary Colson, Gary Cunningham, and Vic Bartolome. Pickering said that NBA legend Jerry West, who has had a longtime relationship with coaches Bertka and Colson, will attend the dinner. The cost is $90. Call 969-7542 for reservations.

MAN WITH MENU: Silvergreens’ chef Chris McConnell shows off new menu items at the health-conscious, Isla Vista–born restaurant on Chapala Street.

Silvergreens’ Chris McConnell Name: Chris McConnell Age: 31 Hometown: Manteca, California

Why he cooks: Starting in the busi-


Silvergreens is located

in downtown Santa Barbara (791 Chapala St., 962-8500) and Isla Vista (900 Embarcadero del Mar, 961-1700). See

ness at the ripe age of 15, McConnell has worked all facets of the kitchen and front of house, from his early days as a busboy up through getting a degree at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. After three years of work in the Bay Area, McConnell brought his deep respect for the locavore movement to Santa Barbara in 2010 and is now thrilled to be part of Silvergreens’ collaborative kitchen environment.“We always try to source what’s in season,” said McConnell.“It’s better for all parties involved, the health of our customers, and the health of the community.”

Favorite purveyors: Working primarily with Harvest Santa Barbara as well as

Oxnard’s Scarborough Farms, McConnell finds inspiration in the weekly farmers’ markets. Though set up like a fast food restaurant, Silvergreens — which was founded in Isla Vista in 1995 — makes everything fresh from scratch, whether it’s their gooey cookies or the oven-roasted turkeys. “The quality of your food is always worth investing in,” said McConnell. “Our motto is eat real food. Everything is homemade, and I am really proud of that.”

Signature ingredients: McConnell believes the most successful menu items are the

simplest. On their new Proteins, Greens & Grains menu, the Chili Roasted Cauliflower (sesame oil, chili sauce, soy sauce) and Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts (salt, pepper, bacon) have been satisfying customers’ desire for fresh food with subtle, delicate flavors. “I feel like the more we can simplify, the better things will be,” said McConnell. “I think people appreciate it, too. It’s not fussed over. It’s just good, clean, quality food.”

Favorite haunt: Lilly’s Taquería. “They keep it simple: two ingredients, plus a salsa,”

said McConnell. “It’s perfect.”

Recent claim to fame: The restaurant also serves packed lunches to K-12 students

from 14 schools as part of a program created by operations director Ron Gleiberman. Customizable to the student, the program delivers more than 1,000 meals daily, and Silvergreens donates 10 percent of proceeds back to participating schools. “It is so important that kids learn to eat healthy, well-balanced meals,” said McConnell. “It’s not a bulk item. Students can order what they want and make their own food choices.”

What he’s up to now: In addition to appearing on a TV segment of Good Food

America, McConnell recently unveiled the Proteins, Greens & Grains dinner menu, which mixes and matches more than 150 different meal combinations, allowing guests to choose between six different proteins (with vegan and vegetarian options), five greens, five grains, and multiple sauces.“I love the smiles when people try our new menu — it’s the greatest reward for a chef,” said McConnell.“My relationship with guests is critical. I love interacting and getting to know my customers on a first-name basis.”

Featuring a “Chef’s Pairing” each week, the menu puts seasonal dishes together with wine and beer suggestions, and McConnell also utilizes an indoor herb garden to give flavor to sparkling-wine-based cocktails for a fresh summer twist. Certified by both Built Green Santa Barbara and Green Business Santa Barbara County, this clearly isn’t your MORE — Rachel Hommel average salad-and-sandwich shop. FOOD SEE P. 65

Dive into Downtown Art & Wine Tour



f you like the fruit of the vine and the creativity of the mind, hop onto Santa Barbara Downtown Organization’s annual Art & Wine Tour this Thursday, May 22. “As a downtown merchant, I love the energy and participation,” said George Merino of Chase Bar & Grill, which will be serving chicken piccata and penne alfredo at Churchill Jewelers. “It brings together a unique, diverse, and fun crowd that fits the spirit of our beautiful city.” With a logo glass in hand, attendees wander through participating galleries, restaurants, and wine-tasting rooms, discovering sips, bites, and insights that all culminate in a party at the Santa Barbara Club, where DJ Darla Bea will be spinning tunes and Cutler’s Artisan Spirits will add some liquor to the mix. “Craft spirits are very much like paintings, sculptures, music, or other forms of art, which appeal to the visual, textural, or auditory senses,” explained distiller Ian Cutler. “Spirits, on the other hand, appeal to our senses of taste and smell.” The event is also a coming-out party of sorts for the Santa Barbara Public Market. “It’s the perfect event to introduce the market to new and returning guests in search of handcrafted, regionally sourced, and sustainably made food and wine in the downtown corridor,” explained the market’s general manager Ashleigh Davis, who said that Crazy Good Bread Co., Culture Counter, Santa Monica Seafood, and Wine + Beer will be serving at the final party. Perhaps Mitchell Sjerven, owner of bouchon, which will serve citrus-cured salmon on sourdough crisps with sauce gribiche and braised short rib on white polenta with tomato-salad garnish at the final party, summed it up best. “It’s a great way for locals to get out and see a little art, walk around the city center, and end up together at a party,” he said. “What’s not to like?” For tickets to the Downtown Art & Wine Tour, which begins and ends at the Santa Barbara Club (1105 Chapala St.) on Thursday, May 22, 5:30-9:30 p.m., see downtown-art-wine-tour.nightout .com or call 962-2098 x22. — George Yatchisin

SHAPE-SHIFTERS: UCSB dance majors (from left) Wilson Vu, Kasey Burgunder, and Samantha Aiello will perform their year-end show this week.


An artist’s rendering of the futu

re Funk Zone Artist Village



ince freshman year, they’ve had their sights set on this. To that end, these 11 senior dance majors have spent untold hours in the studio, honing their technique and rehearsing repertory. Next week, those four years of hard work pay off when the UCSB Dance Company performs its endof-year show. Held downtown at Center Stage Theater on WednesdayThursday, May 28-29, this production draws together dances by resident artists, faculty members, and student choreographers. Included on the program are works by the late José Limón dancer and choreographer Lucas Hoving, as well as contemporary New York–based artists Colin Connor and Alexandra Beller. UCSB faculty members Nancy Colahan and Christopher Pilafian also have works in the lineup, as does student choreographer and company member Hillary Bassoff. The UCSB Dance Company comes to Center Stage fresh off a six-city tour of Italy and the Czech Republic, where director Delila Moseley said these young dancers “rose to the occasion, taking flight through the culture and environment of dance abroad and yet remaining grounded in the richness of their training in dance at UCSB.” Among the works they’ve been honing while on tour is Hoving’s “Songs for Chile.” Originally set on the UCSB dance company in 1981, it has been restaged on the company this year and honors the strength and deter-

mination of the Chilean people. Connor’s “Corvidae,” set to the work of Philip Glass, gives the full company a chance to tackle some demanding and technical modern dance material, as does Colahan’s “A Trancing Way,” a lush and sweeping work for 11 dancers. Now a member of the UCSB department faculty, Colahan has danced for the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, as well as Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project. Improvisation features in Beller’s “This is where it ended,” the most experimental work on the program and one created specifically for this company and set on an all-female cast of nine. Mosely described it as “powerful and mesmerizing,” also noting the work’s beautiful musical score by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks. While this production marks the end of these 11 dancers’ undergraduate experience, it simultaneously points to their future in dance. For Bassoff, whose work “Still Waters Run Deep” is featured on this program, it seems likely that the future will include making dances as well as performing in them. For every member of the company, next week’s show is their last chance to take the stage before they launch into their careers in dance. Think of it as a more athletic and artful equivalent of tossing a mortarboard into the air. Both performances take place at 8 p.m. For tickets, call 963-0408 or visit centerstage — Elizabeth Schwyzer


It’s tough to say what kind of impact classical training can have on contemporary artists. Rock ’n’ roll purists will argue that music theory can clog the creative process, placing form too high over function. But then artists like Kishi Bashi come along and prove that, sometimes, you have to learn the rules before you break them. A renowned violinist long before he picked up gigs with Regina Spektor and of Montreal, Kaoru Ishibashi’s solo work as Kishi Bashi is easily some of the more fantastic, evocative pop music being made today. On his latest, Lighght, Ishibashi further makes his case for formal training, pairing lush violin and keyboard runs with a painstaking ear for detail. As a vocalist, Ishibashi tends toward the higher end of the spectrum, at times calling to mind Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos. (The bouncy “The Ballad of Mr. Steak” is a dead ringer for a Passion Pit jam.) But Lighght’s major highlights come when he opts to go full throttle toward fantasy land. The speedy, buzzy “Carry On, Phenomenon” is an obvious standout and rips open like the bastard child of Electric Light Orchestra and Styx. Later, “Once Upon a Lucid Dream (In Afrikaans)” pits finger-plucked violin against a carefree little clap track and a thick layer of vocal harmonies. Then the horns kick in. Like many of the tracks on Lighght, it’s a flash in the pan that’s easy to digest and tough to unpack, a trick no doubt learned from music’s compositional pioneers. — Aly Comingore


Do you dream of a studio in the Funk Zone but don’t think you can afford one? Are you an artist who thrives on community? If you answered “yes” to either or both of these questions, there’s big news for you. Applications are now being accepted by Mesa Lane Partners for month-to-month rental of 24 individual spaces in the Funk Zone Artist Village (FZAV), a temporary experimental art project located on Gray Avenue just below Yanonali Street. Devised by property owner Mesa Lane Partners and the Santa Barbara Foundation as a temporary measure to hold the space during the two to three years that it will take to establish the entitlements necessary for a permanent development, the FZAV will be made of approximately 25 shipping containers that will serve as work and exhibition spaces for artists. The containers come in three sizes: large 40’ x 8’ x 9’6” tall, approximately 300 square feet for 800 per month; medium 20’ x 8’ x 9’6’ tall, approximately 150 square feet for 425 per month; and small 10’ x ARTIST VILLAGE ACCEPTING RENTAL 8’ x 9’6” tall, approximately APPLICATIONS 75 square feet for 250 per month. These containers will be delivered in “cold dark shell” condition with unfinished wood floors, corrugated steel walls, and skylights. Utilities (water and power) are included with the rent, and there will be portable restrooms with outdoor wash stations at either end of the village. The most significant restriction on the FZAV concerns habitation. The units are “absolutely not” available to live in according to the application, and no smoking or pets are allowed. Artists whose applications are accepted will be able to move in beginning on July 1, and they will be allowed to work both in and outside of their spaces as long as they use drop cloths and respect the other tenants. Applications are available online through the S.B. Arts Collaborative, and accepted applicants will be notified in midJune 2014. For info, visit — Charles Donelan

Santa Barbara – Puerto Vallarta Pacific Western Aerial Sister City Committee


THERAPY THROUGH FISH Since November 2012, Rudholm has lived at New House III, a sober living facility across from Cottage Hospital that for 59 years has helped addicts and alcoholics get back on their feet. Between meetings, programs, and a lot of introspection, Rudholm spends most of his days making art, specifically fish prints. With canvases and paints set up on a shaded back patio picnic table at New House — and wearing one of his own fish-print T-shirts — Rudholm talked about how he derives a quiet but deep solace from the work and that it helps him stay sober. “Recovery and creativity come from the same wellspring,” he said. Rudholm’s technique, which is inspired by the Japanese gyotaku tradition of printmaking to record fishermen’s catches, is deliberate and tactile but deceptively difficult. He both catches his fish and collects recently dead ones from a number of places around town — Atlantis Aquariums offers him its weekly die-off, and the harbor fish market is always full of promising subjects — and cleans them before removing their eyes, gluing their gills shut, laying them flat, and bracing up their fins. (When the fish are really fresh, Rudholm said, he can work with them all day before cooking and eating them that night.) Rudholm paints the scaly models with graphic inks, mimicking their colors and patterns as best he can, before applying thin glassine paper over their bodies and rubbing from mouth to tail to achieve a reverse image. Some turn out rich and detailed. Others look like blobs of pigment. But it’s a challenge Rudholm enjoys and a process he’s been refining

t was a few days before Halloween 2012, 0122, and Craig Rudholm was on a plane, butt hee ng a had no idea where he was going. Wearing ped d T-shirt and without luggage, he just hoped it was someplace warm. Rudholm was a special education teacher at Santa Barbara Junior High Schooll and a struggling alcoholic when, after a longg week of work, he had a drink on Friday and kept drinking until he blacked out. He didn’tt snap back to consciousness until mid-flight and mid-conversation Sunday afternoon. A Concord native, Rudholm landed in San ng Jose and spent the next two weeks wandering around the Bay Area, drinking and sleeping in cheap motels. He didn’t say a word to anyone about his unplanned trip, so after missing five straightt he days of work, Rudholm’s colleagues called the police. Detectives didn’t suspect any foul playy and said Rudholm appeared to be “voluntarily missing,” but to make sure he was safe, they forwarded his photo to Santa Barbara news media and asked for the public’s help in their search. Two weeks later, police quietly announced that Rudholm had been found in Livermore but offered no explanation for his disappearance. School officials were similarly mum, and the news soon vanished from the public’s memory. Guilty and embarrassed by the episode, but now walking a road of recovery and redemption, Rudholm reached out to The Santa Barbara Independent to talk about his struggles, what he’s learned about his addiction that could help others, and the hobby-turnedprofession that, as he says, may have very well kept him alive.

PROUD TOWN: Craig Rudholm works on his latest fish print and shows off the galleries in New House’s halls. Of his work and recovery, he said, “I just want to represent Santa Barbara well.”

for 16 years with sunfish, reef fish, salmon, bass, and so on. He’s only recently gotten good at the smaller specimens by practicing on a few that expired in New House’s lobby tank. Depending on his mood and artistic whim, Rudholm may let the print stand alone on the

canvas, or he may incorporate a few different rubbings to create dynamic, multidimensional collages. Some are vibrant and sunny. Others are decidedly dark and brooding. Walking through New House’s halls, which are covered with more than two dozen of his works,

SSAD A PAST, ROSY FUTURE By no means promising to have completely rid his life of old and current demons, Rudholm said he’s nevertheless reached a point in his recovery where his alcoholism is under control, and his reincarnated sense of selfworth has grown into an overall healthier state of mind.“I’m happy on the inside, even if I couldn’t do the fish,” he said. At 59 years old, Rudholm said he’s been trying to get sober since he was 30 and that alcoholism runs in his family. He acknowledged his own efforts in reaching a major milestone of sobriety, but he gave much credit to New House and its staff for getting and keeping him on the straight and narrow. Said New House director Gordon Guy, “Craig is a good man and an example of persistence in his recovery. He is a great example for others coming into New House, and I often see him talking to a new guy at dinner to help him feel welcome.” Rudholm said he hopes to prove that it’s never too late to get help and beat addiction. “There are a lot of alcoholics my age who feel too old, and they just bag it,” he said,“but it doesn’t have to be that way. With a little help, faith, and willingness to look inside and do the work, life can be great for alcoholics and addicts, no matter what age.” Rudholm, who’s twice divorced and is paying the $30 a day New House rent with his savings, doesn’t want to dwell on the past.“I’m not looking back,” he said.“It doesn’t help.” Yet he can’t completely shake the harbored guilt of leaving his school and his students so abruptly. He hates to think that he derailed their learning or was the cause of any angst.“I wish I could have moved on in a more honorable and elegant manner,” he said,“but I didn’t listen to my inner self.” When Rudholm got back to town from Livermore, he took the detective who handled his missing-persons case out to coffee and apologized. And after he resigned from his teaching job, he reached out to his former school’s principal, who said Rudholm would make full reparation in his eyes if he promised to live a sober life. Rudholm was allowed to keep his teaching credential, but his disappearance and its fallout are documented in his personnel file, which can be accessed by any school district if he applies for another job. For now, Rudholm will concentrate on his artwork and his recovery, thankful for the roof and environment New House provides.“It’s a good place to make mistakes,” he explained. Smiling and looking over a half-finished print, he said confidently,“As far as I’m concerned, the prime of my life is the next 20-30 years.” ■ may 22, 2014

LEAPS AND BOUNDS: Cecily Stewart is just one of the State Street Ballet dancers teaching area high school students as part of the new Library Dances program.

Stepping into a Dream Library Dances Pairs Company Dancers with High School Students

Now open at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History



t the end of a long corridor at the Gail Towbes Center for Dance on Las Positas lies the inner sanctum of Rodney Gustafson’s State Street Ballet, a large, blissfully air-conditioned studio wrapped in giant mirrors and drenched in clear light. It’s where the company’s professional dancers put in the long hours of prancing, gliding, spinning, floating, and soaring that keep them at the top of the West Coast dance world. From Santa Barbara to Las Vegas to Seattle, State Street Ballet is one of the most in-demand companies going, and the hard work that supports this extraordinary enterprise mostly happens right here. On the hot morning in mid-May that I visited the studio, rehearsal was a little different, because the dancers were moving in steps prepared for them by one of their own. Cecily Stewart, a young dancer who grew up in Santa Barbara and has been with the company for five years, has developed her own version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of the most choreographed works in all of literature. Later this week, the 45-minute piece, along with a shorter dance also by Stewart called The Gift of the Magi, will get its premiere when the dancers of the State Street Ballet are joined onstage at San Marcos High School by a group of San Marcos students. Through a series of high-intensity tutorials conducted by the dancers themselves, these lucky teens will be leaping into the world of professional ballet with both feet. The whole project is designed not just to introduce them to the rigors of dance but perhaps more importantly to deepen their experience of literature. Library Dances takes as its point of departure the idea that great books do much more than entertain us. A text as complex and layered as Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream contains the seeds of any number of other works of art, from the music it inspired in composer Felix Mendelssohn to the choreography that George Balanchine developed in response. By going into schools and engaging students first as readers, and then as apprentice dancers, Stewart and her team link the deep meanings of the story to an unforgettable episode in these students’ lives — the two days during which they become part of a working professional dance company. Fairies and kings, gods and monsters abound in Shakespeare’s amazing fantasy world, but for a teen, there’s nothing more fantastic than the exposure these San Marcos pupils will have to the dancers. Ballerina Leila Drake Fossek, speaking for the troupe, remarked that part of what the program offers is a chance for the dancers to act as friends to the participating students. With the help of the Library Dances program, this dream of a connection between the books required in school and an exciting career as a professional dancer has become a reality.

UCSB Theater Does Equivocation by Tom Jacobs


BARD GAMES: Shakespeare plays a prominent role in Bill Cain’s Equivocation, which opens on campus at UCSB this Friday. Theater students (from left) Dillon Francis, Joe Caldwell, and Ian Elliott star.


ubbing shoulders with the greatest dramatist of all time — at least metaphorically — seems to inspire contemporary playwrights. Consider the film Shakespeare in Love, cowritten by Tom Stoppard, or Amy Freed’s comedy The Beard of Avon, memorably produced at the Garvin Theatre a few years back. The latest addition to this distinguished group is also the one with the most bite. Equivocation, written by Jesuit priest Bill Cain, tells a story of Shakespeare and his times that contains strong echoes of the controversies, and moral failings, of early 21st-century America. It is, simultaneously, a play about longago events and very recent history. “I understand it has particular appeal for Shakespeare nerds like me,” said Irwin Appel, who is directing the UCSB Department of Theater’s production of the work, which opens Friday night.“But what grabbed me about the play was its visceral electricity. The wit, and the imagination, is phenomenal.” Appel has been directing a lot of Shakespeare at UCSB, usually as part of the stripped-down, scenery-free series he calls Naked Shakes. The season began with his Macbeth, and next season will kick off with him directing A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But for now, he’s staging Cain’s 2008 play, in which the Bard is a primary character. Appel saw the world-premiere production of the play at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2008; it moved to the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles later that year and went to off-Broadway in 2010.“I think it’s one of the best new plays I’ve seen in recent years,” he said flatly.“I was gratified to find the students have also been blown away by it.” The plot concerns the attempt of Sir Robert Cecil, a top advisor to King James I, to convince the great dramatist to write a propaganda play about the recent plot by Catholic rebels to blow up the Parliament building. In Cain’s telling, Shakespeare reluctantly agrees, but his research reveals that the politics of terror and terrorism aren’t as clear-cut as he initially realized. “There’s a real contemporary feel to this play,” Appel insisted. “It’s not your traditional period piece. In some ways, it feels very much like an American play to me. It has a grittiness to it. It’s a good, old-fashioned, smart thriller. It has hangings, beheadings, and somebody getting sliced open in the chest.” How American indeed! The characters of Equivocation engage in a debate over torture that will sound awfully familiar to anyone who was paying attention during the George W. Bush administration. Among many other themes, Cain shows how we use language to justify unjustifiable acts. But it’s not all grim. There’s also a love story of sorts, between the playwright and his estranged daughter. And on yet another level, Appel notes, it’s a celebration of “the bond of the theater community.” One must serve the king, but the play’s the thing.

SEEING RED: Matt Gottlieb as Mark Rothko (left) assaults his studio assistant Ken (Shaun Anthony) in Ensemble Theatre Company’s Red .


On the Pulse Red, presented by Ensemble Theatre Company. At the New Vic, Saturday, May 17. Shows through June 1. Reviewed by Charles Donelan


n this Tony Award–winning two-person play, the notoriously intense American painter Mark Rothko (Matt Gottlieb) puts his young studio assistant Ken (Shaun Anthony) through a series of more or less painful emotional trials. At the outset, Rothko defines the young man’s role as strictly subservient and instrumental — as in “assistants should be seen and not heard”— but over the course of the show’s 90-minute single act, the artist continually draws Ken back into a series of far-flung discussions about the history of art and its relations to psychology, philosophy, and tragedy. While on the surface this premise sounds simple and even didactic, Red is anything but boring. Like Rothko’s signature paintings depicting blurry rectangles of color stacked vertically against a contrasting background, the show invites the viewer to contemplate the pulsing vitality that arises when strong figures collide. Set in designer Brian Sidney Bembridge’s striking rendering of Rothko’s Bowery studio circa 1958-59, Red portrays a key moment in the painter’s biography. Having established himself as one of the world’s most important artists, Rothko accepts a commission from the architect Philip Johnson to provide a set of murals to decorate the walls of the Four Seasons, a power mecca restaurant situated within the new Seagram building just east of Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. Rothko knows how important this commission is to his reputation, but he’s not sure whether his most powerful move in relation to it will be to fulfill it or to deny it. After wrestling with the project for a period of several months, the artist finally rejects the commission and returns the money. The Seagram project thus became a particularly crucial episode in the making of Rothko’s self-mythology. For Ken, the job of filling Rothko’s paint cans and cleaning his brushes is at once a dream and a nightmare. A painter himself, the young man sees in Rothko a father figure of immense power and deep flaws. The tension in their relationship builds to a series of climaxes, some lyrical, such as the moment when the two prime a canvas together, and some violent, as when Ken confronts his mentor about his own ambitions. Brian Shnipper’s acute direction brings out all the nuances in John Logan’s terrific script, and Gottlieb has a fine time surfing the great man’s towering, then crashing, waves of ego and insight. The studio teems with opportunities for the actors to perform small tasks — there’s a sink, plenty of paint and brushes, and even a staple gun for fastening canvas to stretchers. But it’s through the less obvious but still palpable task of looking that these actors draw the audience in to their seething cauldron of artistic creation. I can’t think of another play that goes further toward dramatizing the essential act of focusing one’s visual attention. When it works, and it frequently does, Red succeeds in hanging something on the fourth wall that separates and unites the audience with the actors on the stage. And although that work of art is meant to be a Rothko painting, replete with the pulsing energy of tragedy with which the artist invested his every brush stroke, the excitement of Red lies in the feeling that we see through what that paint has ■ covered up.

How did you end up naming the band Tyvek?

It was one of those things where I just saw the name everywhere. I started thinking, “Hey, if they’re going to put that all over the place, it’s kind of like free advertising.” We wanted to turn it into our own thing rather than have our minds be taken over by branding and product.

Do you think it speaks to the band’s aesthetic?

Yeah. The sound of it, the syllables kind of fit our music. You can’t get away from it if you try, and because of that, what we do kind of floats under the radar. We kind of try to focus on us and do just make music and not worry about getting our image out there. Because the name is so ubiquitous, we feel comfortable going about our daily business and maintaining our anonymity.

You’re also working on a record. Do you want to talk about the new songs? Sure. The last album

we recorded as a three-piece, and this one we’re recording as a four-piece, so I feel like it’s getting a lot more … we’re not so worried about being tight because we know we jam together well. It’s going to be a little bit looser and a little bit heavier, just because we have two guitars in the mix. I think it’ll be loose like the last one, and similarly casual, but we’re certainly not going to be holding back. It’s going to be an all-out rager from start to finish. [Laughs.] I’m excited about it. It’s shaping up right now, and I don’t want to jinx it, but I’m pretty stoked.

Godzilla. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston star in a film written by Max Borenstein and directed by Gareth Edwards. A FILM BY GIA COPPOLA

Reviewed by D.J. Palladino



t’s a terrible movie and, therefore, great. Don’t ask your square friends, because they probably think that all films should be built along clean lines and represent some moral truth. But even super geeky fans may falter in their faith, wondering at the restraint of this movie until a half hour of setup delivers us to two terrific actors: Ken (Inception) Watanabe and Sally (Happy-Go-Lucky) Hawkins. They show up falling over themselves to relate what is possibly the most preposterous origin story in all of cinema: pre-prehistoric creatures that subsist on fissile materials. And then it hits you: It’s a Godzilla movie. Later, when the MUTOs (massive unidentified terrestrial organisms) munch some live warheads, it all becomes clear. Gareth Edwards’s reimagining of Ishirô Honda’s masterful, sad Gojira (1954) manages the impossible. It’s both impressive and cheesy without resorting to soupy camp. Edwards had two choices if he wanted to honor the tradition: Godzilla could either be the melodramatic Tokyocrusher (in the spirit of the first film), or he could reawake the Friend of the Earth/King of the Monsters, which was how most of the 27 sequels painted him. It would be cruel to let on which version he picked; just know that it does include awesome size, raging battles, and the wholesale spectacle of modern high-rises tumbling. The war cry and fire breath come along, too. And, in the movie’s best

KING OF THE MONSTERS: Gareth Edwards’s Godzilla is both impressive and cheesy. dig, the monsters takes out some San Francisco techies too dedicated to Microsoft to evacuate when kaiju romps the neighborhood. The last American Godzilla, the execrable Roland Emmerich version starring Matthew Broderick, began well but sold out to bad Steven Spielberg ideas. This one may be a little too true to the Japanese customs and turns up a little short on the requisite sense of horrible wonder, but considering the wear and tear it deals to some fine American cities, it’s very light on its feet. ■

he trouble with pursuing an art when you come from a distinguished family of artists is that, no matter what you do, folks are always going to play the comparison game.

For others, it’s not as easy.

✯ Belle (104 mins.; PG: thematic elements, some language, brief smoking images)

Blended (117 mins.; PG-13: crude and sexual content, language)

The formula behind this nicely moving costume drama is simple — Jane Austen with a woman of color at its heart. Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is the illegitimate child of an English gentleman, a sailor named Captain Lindsay (Matthew Goode). Belle’s mother dies offstage before the film begins. But Belle’s legitimacy is entirely eclipsed by her race since her mother was black, and the girl’s role is decidedly subservient, even though Lindsay brings her back to England to be raised by his wealthy uncle and then conveniently dies himself, endowing Belle with enough fortune to turn some prejudice aside. Of course, in 18th-century hooking-up customs, the precedence of financial gain over color is clear to all. Questions of true love come somewhere way below. Of course, the movie, being romantic and topical, will turn those pragmatic issues upside down. It’s an intelligent but predictable film. Mbatha-Raw is beautiful and poised, and the levels of polite society provide her with a kind of dense springboard. In Austen novels, when women speak their minds, we feel the weight of oppressive tradition making their pronouncements acute and heroic. With Belle, even though her white family has managed to indulge and even love her as real kin, the same kind of assertive eloquence seems to be bringing down the walls of history. After a while, you stop caring whether this “based on true incidents” story is even accurately conveyed by costume, script, and camera. It’s touching and eloquent, and you would be a churl if it didn’t mist you up a bit. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: The racially charged, Austenesque Belle stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw as the real-life Dido Elizabeth Belle. Dickens and his much-younger mistress. Were it a more tawdry or tabloid-y film, one might feel proper indulging the temptation to say The Invisible Woman puts the (ahem) back in Dickens. But this film, directed by and featuring Ralph Fiennes as the 19th-century British author, is unexpectedly graceful, a gauzily sensuous period piece that goes light on the scandal.

Wes Anderson’s latest chronicles the adventures of Gustave H., a concierge at a famous European hotel, and the lobby boy he forges a lifelong friendship with.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF MAY  GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): During the next 12 months you will have exceptional opportunities to soak up knowledge, add to your skill set, and get the training you need to pursue interesting kinds of success in the coming six to eight years. What’s the best way to prepare? Develop an exciting new plan for your future education. To get in the mood, try the following: Make a list of your most promising but still unripe potentials; meditate on the subjects that evoke your greatest curiosity; brainstorm about what kinds of experiences would give you more control over your destiny; and study three people you know who have improved their lives by taking aggressive steps to enhance their proficiency.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): The moon shows us a different phase every 24 hours, which makes it seem changeable. But in fact, not much actually happens on the moon. It has no atmosphere, no weather, no wind, no plant life, no seasons. There is some water, but it’s all frozen. Is there anything like this in your own life, Cancerian? Something that on the surface of things seems to be in constant motion, but whose underlying state never actually shifts or develops? According to my analysis, now would be an excellent time for you to revise the way you understand this part of your world, and then update your relationship with it.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Have you thought of organizing a crowdfunding campaign to boost your pet project or labor of love? I suggest you get serious about it in the next four weeks. This coming phase of your cycle will be a favorable time to expand your audience, attract new allies, and build a buzz. You will have a sixth sense about how to wield your personal charm to serve your long-term goals. More than usual, your selfish interests will dovetail with the greater good — perhaps in unexpected ways.

Homework: Name a beautiful thing you were never capable of doing until this past year. Visit

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Years ago, I had a Virgo friend who was a talented singer. She had technical skill, stylistic flair, and animal magnetism, making her worthy of being a lead vocalist in almost any great band. And yet when she was asleep and had dreams of performing, she often found herself standing in the shadows, barely visible and singing tentatively, while her back-up singers hogged the spotlight at center stage. Moral of the story: Some of you Virgos are shy about claiming your full authority. It doesn’t always come easy for you to shine your light and radiate your power. And yet you can most definitely learn to do so. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to make progress in this direction.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): “There is always an enormous temptation in all of life,” writes Annie Dillard, “to diddle around making itsy-bitsy friends and meals and journeys for itsy-bitsy years on end ... I won’t have it. The world is wider than that in all directions, more dangerous and bitter, more extravagant and bright.”Your assignment in the coming weeks, Libra, is to transcend whatever is itsy-bitsy about your life. The alternative? Head toward the frontier and drum up experiences that will thrill your heart and blow your mind.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): “We are all searching for someone whose demons play well with ours,” writes novelist Heidi R. Kling. That’s good advice for you to keep in mind these days, Scorpio. Those little imps and rascals that live within you may get you into bad trouble if they feel bored. But if you arrange for them to have play dates with the imps and rascals of people you trust, they are far more likely to get you into good trouble. They may even provide you with bits of gritty inspiration. What’s that you say? You don’t have any demons? Not true. Everyone has them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): “When people tell you who they are, believe them,” writes blogger Maria Popova

PISCES ( “Just as importantly, however, when people try to tell you who you are, don’t believe them.” Those suggestions are especially crucial for you to keep in mind these days. You are entering a phase when your best relationships will be up for review and revision and revitalization. To foster an environment in which intimacy will thrive, you’ve got to be extra receptive, curious, tolerant, and tender. That’s all! Not hard, right? A good place to start is to proceed as if your allies know who they are better than you do — even as you ask them to return the favor.

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Even if you had a sensitive, nurturing mommy when you were growing up, and even if she continues to play an important role in your life, now would be a good time to learn how to mother yourself better. You are finally ready to appreciate how important it is to be your own primary caregiver. And I’m hoping you are no longer resistant to or embarrassed about the idea that part of you is still like a child who needs unconditional love 24/7. So get started! Treat yourself with the expert tenderness that a crafty maternal goddess would provide.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): “Kludge” (pronounced klooj) is a slang word that refers to a clumsy but effective fix for an engineering problem. It’s a cobbled-together solution that works fine, at least temporarily, even though it is inelegant or seems farfetched. Let’s use this concept in a metaphorical way to apply to you. I’m guessing that you will be a kludge master in the coming days. You will be skilled at making the best of mediocre situations. You may have surprising success at doing things that don’t come naturally, and I bet you will find unexpected ways to correct glitches that no one else has any idea about how to fix.

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): I believe your persuasive powers will be stronger than usual in the weeks ahead. The words coming out of your mouth will sound especially interesting. I also suspect that your intelligence will get at least a temporary upgrade. The clarity of your thoughts will intensify. You will see truths you have been blind to in the past. Innovative solutions to long-running dilemmas are likely to occur to you. The only potential snag is that you might neglect to nurture your emotional riches. You could become a bit too dry and hard. But now that I’ve warned you of that possibility, let’s hope you will take steps to ensure it won’t happen.



(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): I hesitate to compare you to your fellow Aquarian Kim Jong Il. When he was alive and ruling North Korea, he was an egomaniacal tyrant. You’re definitely not that. But there are certain descriptions of him in his official biography that remind me of the kinds of powers you may soon exhibit. He was called The Great Sun of Life and Highest Incarnation of Revolutionary Comradely Love, for instance. Titles like that might suit you. It is said that he invented the hamburger. He could command rain to fall from the sky. He once shot eleven holes-in-one in a single round of golf, was a master of gliding down waterslides, and never had to use a toilet because he produced no waste. You may be able to express comparable feats in the coming weeks. (Do it without falling prey to excessive pride, okay?)

(Apr. 20 - May 20): If there were a Hall of Fame for scientists, physicist Isaac Newton (1642-1727) would have been the charter member. He was like Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry were to rock and roll, like Babe Ruth was to baseball. The theory of gravity and the three laws of motion were his gifts to the world. He made major contributions to mathematics and optics and was a central figure in defining modern science. There is also a legend that he invented the cat door, inspired by his pet felines. Whether or not that’s true, it serves as an excellent metaphor for this horoscope. It’s an excellent time for you to apply your finest talents and highest intelligence to dream up small, mundane, but practical innovations.

As one of the earlier players in the Funk Zone wine tasting scene — and the first to double down in the waterfront neighborhood with a second project called AVA Santa Barbara — Seth Kunin is known for taking risks, and they usually pay off. Such is the case with this Camp Four carignane, an obscure, usually blended grape that slams bright red fruit together with cinnamon‑pepper spices to make a relatively light but thoroughly flavorful summer sipper, especially when ever so slightly chilled. Kunin is one of the panelists and pourers at next weekend’s Urban Wine Trail Summer Celebration, so get a ticket for optimal exploration of Santa Barbara’s hometown vintners before they sell out. See urbanwinetrailsb. com for info on the event and for more on the wine.

C’est Cheese Café Opens


ichael and Kathryn Graham have opened the long-awaited café section of their popular C’est Cheese store at  Santa Barbara Street, which first

opened in 2003. Michael tells me that they will be taking all the raw ingredients at their store and cooking with them, using the many cheeses, meats, and olive oils for sandwiches as well as producing various jams, spreads, pickles, pâtés, and other creations that will be available in the cheese shop. They’ll also be making their own pastries from scratch, and offering seasonal salads from ingredients purchased at the Farmers Market. Coffee will be provided by popular java joint French Press. C’est Cheese opened a second patio on the north side of the building, offering afternoon sun and a great view of the Riviera. But Michael also reminded that, even though the new café is open, construction continues. They will be temporarily moving the store into the café area so C’est Cheese can remodel its existing space. C’est Cheese is open for breakfast at 7 a.m., lunch will be available until 3 p.m., and pastries/coffee will be available until 6 p.m.


it here first. I am happy to break the news that a second Natural Café is opening a second Goleta location. The address will be  Marketplace Drive, immediately next to Hollister Brewing Company, in the former home of a Hallmark store. Natural Café currently has South Coast locations at  Hollister Avenue,  State Street, and  Hitchcock Way.

SMART & FINAL COMING TO GOLETA: A Smart & Final Extra! is set to open in early 2015 as part of Goleta’s new Hollister Village Plaza, on the north side of Camino Real Marketplace. Santa Barbara already has a regular Smart & Final store at  East Gutierrez Street. The “Extra!” version of Smart & Final stores are larger and feature more grocery options, such as organic foods and a larger deli/meat section. OUTPOST COMING TO CALLE REAL: Starting in July, the former Holiday Inn at  Calle Real in Goleta will be rebranded as The Goodland and run by Kimpton Hotels, which also owns the Canary Hotel in downtown Santa Barbara. Reader Cris let me know that the new Goleta hotel will include a restaurant named Outpost at The Goodland featuring Executive Chef Derek Simcik.

GROWING APPETITE: Michael and Kathryn Graham have expanded C’est Cheese Café after having outgrown their small Santa Barbara Street store more than five years ago.

FRESCO UPDATE: The Restaurant Gal and I recently

enjoyed a fine meal at Fresco Café ( State St.) with retiring astronomer Fred Marschak and his wife, Nancy, who are moving to Pennsylvania soon. Fred has been teaching astronomy and science at Santa Barbara City College for 37 years, ran the planetarium at the Museum of Natural History for decades, and has been the go-to person for all heavenly events that graced the night skies. While enjoying Fresco’s popular Hot Mushroom Combo, which is on my top 10 lunches list, owner Jill Brouillard walked by. My automatic response was, of course, to ask her to send me any news about Fresco that I might have missed, and she kindly obliged: “Hi John, We now cater seven days a week and provide staffing and assistance with rentals. We offer Fundraising Saturday Evenings, where an approved nonprofit or people in crisis can receive 15 percent of cash sales between 5 and 9 p.m. We have many gluten-free items on our menu, including sandwiches, salads, pastas, desserts. Especially good is our gluten-free caramel and coconut banana cream pie. In our case, you may also find coconut macaroons, flourless chocolate cake, sour cream coffee cake muffins, all also gluten free.”
