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; and 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 would have to be paramount. Eliminating the practice of awarding contracts and grants based on political patronage, and eliminating contract cost overruns and padding would also have to be emphasized. This change in attitudes and priorities can only be achieved by county voters changing their representation on the Board of Supervisors. TM

Bill Brown

SANTA BARBARA RAPE CRISIS CENTER presents the winners of the

2014 Chocolate de Vine Chocolatier Competition:

for County Sheriff

Sheriff Bill Brown isn’t Superman. But he did secure $120 million in state funding to build a new North County jail, and by Santa Barbara County standards, that qualifies as the next best thing. When Brown first ran for sheriff nine years ago, he pledged to get the new jail built. How many elected officials make good on campaign promises?

Janet Wolf

for 2nd District Supervisor

The most immediate and obvious reason to reelect Supervisor Janet Wolf to a third term is the resolve she demonstrated in protecting county air-quality standards in the face of a political onslaught waged last fall by Santa Maria Energy. Opponent Roger Aceve’s strong support for Santa Maria Energy and, likewise, the company’s generous financial support for him are troubling, and his election would not bode well for county air-quality standards.

Measure M: Vote No

Not one cent of the money mandated by Measure M — hatched by th District Supervisor Peter Adam, a passionate believer in limited government — will pay to fill a single pothole on any of the busy city streets. Instead, it will be spent exclusively fixing county roads, some of the least-traveled thoroughfares in the county. But city dwellers — as well as everyone else in the county — will suffer when important public services get the ax.

Prop. 41: Vote Yes

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.

Prop. 42: Vote Yes

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. Open-government laws are both essential and fundamental, and as such, they cannot depend upon the precarious whimsy of funding formulas.

Gun Violence Must Never Be the ‘New Normal’ Mental-Health Checks in Firearms Purchases Need Reevaluation


BY T O N I W E L L E N , chair of Santa Barbara Coalition Against Gun Violence

mericans cannot allow gun violence to continue to happen in towns across the country at the frequency it is occurring and to the degree to which it’s now being considered the “new normal.” We must all support important legislation that will reduce the number of easily accessible firearms, especially military-style weaponry, on our streets. This is something that each of us can do today. Killing our fellow human beings is not an acceptable response to anger or resentment and will only be compounded by an easily accessible gun. Mass shootings shock the nation into awareness.Yet, another horrific slaughter of innocents by gun violence keeps occurring. The American people must take action to prevent these tragedies from happening. And happen they do every day. We can agree: There are too many gun deaths in America — averaging 87 per day = more than 30,000 yearly — making gun violence a public health menace. We can also agree: Guns are here to stay. No one’s going to take your gun away. That’s a gun-lobby fear tactic. Gun-violence-prevention organizations don’t talk about banning all guns. They talk about reasonable gun policies and work closely with law enforcement and elected officials.



may 29, 2014

And we can take action. If you have a gun in your home, perhaps it’s time to consider it not as a means for safety but a dangerous killing instrument — unwanted in your home. The Coalition Against Gun Violence, in collaboration with the Santa Barbara City Police Department, is holding the first-ever gun buyback on the Central Coast on Saturday, June 14, 8 a.m. - noon at the Earl Warren Showgrounds. (See or call 564-6803 for more information.)

adequately reduce access to firearms by individuals who are at an elevated risk of violence, whether due to mental illness, a history of violent crime, perpetration of domestic violence, or alcohol or drug abuse. Individuals at high risk of committing gun violence should be disqualified from purchasing and possessing firearms. Families in crisis need tools. A gun-violence restraining order could help. Such a practice would allow people to petition the court to request

If you have a gun in your home, perhaps

it’s time to consider it not as a means for safety but a dangerous killing instrument …

Across the nation, doctors are speaking out against gun violence. A study published in the American Journal of Medicine indicates that gun ownership does not make a country safer. The report also found another factor in the level of gun violence: “Mentally ill people who are not in treatment are more violent than the rest of the population.” Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, responded to the Isla Vista tragedy: “Neither current federal nor state policies

that guns be temporarily removed from a family member or intimate partner who poses a credible risk of harm to self or others. Respondents to an order issued through such a process would be prohibited from buying guns and required to relinquish all firearms in their possession for the duration of the order.” Most counties in California use a mentalhealth treatment standard based on a person’s likelihood of being dangerous instead of using a more progressive “need for treatment” standard. California has a law regarding highly

symptomatic individuals with severe mental illness that counties may choose to implement. Laura’s Law, operant in Nevada County, allows courts to compel individuals, with a past history of arrest, hospitalizations, threats, or attempts of serious violent behavior toward self or others, to get mental-health treatment provided by the county as a condition for living in the community. At the UCSB vigil Saturday night, we lit candles in solidarity for the pain and suffering felt by families and friends who lost loved ones, responding with strength and compassion to senseless violence. We are grateful for the millions who choose to respond to the vicissitudes of life not with hate and confrontation but with knowledge and understanding. This inspires in us a hope for the continuing growth of our community.


Help prevent homicide, suicide, and gun accidents, often involving children. Join the Coalition Against Gun Violence and the Santa Barbara City Police Department in the firstever gun buyback on the Central Coast on Saturday, June 14, 8 a.m. - noon, at Earl Warren Showgrounds. See or call 564-6803 for more information.




Justin Fareed for Congress

t is time for change in Washington, D.C. America is in trouble domestically and overseas. We can no longer afford mediocre, pandering, myopic politicians. We need representatives in Congress dedicated to excellence and serving the public, who truly listen to us, respect us, inspire us, and will work hard to secure a future of freedom, opportunity, and prosperity — for all generations. Justin Fareed, who is running for the th Congressional District, will be that kind of representative. He is the right person for this time. —Diana Thorn, Carpinteria

While it is important to make sure that all pets are safe in our neighborhoods, this decision is an unnecessary abuse of power by the staff of County Animal Control. The organization DAWG has found out-of-the-county placement for these two dogs where they would pose no threat to anyone else’s animals. Despite this, Animal Control persists in its plan to euthanize the dogs and refuses to allow DAWG to rescue them. Not only is this a violation of the Hayden Act, but it is also mismanagement of government funds allocated to run the shelters. Again, how many dogs have to die before someone looks into what is going on in Santa Barbara Animal Control? — Felicia Saunders, Goleta

Vote Sandra Marshall

Civil Society



e can have a say in which way our government goes and finally have the leader we deserve representing the th Congressional District. Sandra Marshall is exactly the kind of new leader who will do what needs to be done in Washington, D.C., to create the systemic change required to transform our world. I’ve known Sandra Marshall for almost 20 years, what she stands for, her integrity, vision, resiliency, determination, and conviction in action. I’ve seen what she is capable of as a community organizer and publisher of Information Press, a monthly that reports news on topics the mainstream media often overlooks. As your congressperson, Sandra will be unstoppable. Top issues are campaign finance reform, climate change, immigration, education and making college affordable, community violence, health care for all, job creation and fair wages, right to privacy, reducing the military budget, no fracking, and closing Diablo Canyon nuclear plant. It’s time to get money out of politics and focus on climate change. When I look back at what I did during my lifetime here on Earth, I want to remember how I said, “Yes” to being the change I wished to see in the world. Say “Yes” and vote for Sandra Marshall, a voice for action and — Roslyn Scheuerman, S.B. change, June 3.

Daisy and Duke at Risk


found out on Memorial Day that Santa Barbara County Animal Control intends to kill two one-yearold dogs, Daisy and Duke, because they each killed a cat.


he other day, my dogs were barking incessantly as they often do when someone dares walk past their house. I took a look and saw a woman, obviously homeless, who had her bike and probably everything she owns with her. She had stopped to rest nearby. I thought nothing of it … she was causing no harm, and my heart went out to her. Apparently, someone called the police because I next saw two patrol cars, and two officers were talking to her. This is when my heart was really tugged. Both of these officers were so kind and compassionate. They offered to put her bike on their truck and take her somewhere for a meal, a cleanup, and maybe some help she so obviously needed. She refused their help and eventually got back on her bike and rode down the hill. I want our community to know and appreciate the good officers we have securing our safety. Both of these gentlemen were so obviously genuinely concerned about this woman’s welfare, it warmed my heart. In this world we live in, where everyone is so quick to complain and criticize, how about we start being just as quick to say a simple thank-you, give a smile? It goes a long way. Thank — Katie Thatcher, S.B. you, SBPD.

nited, even if strangers, by the black ribbons pinned to their UCSB T-shirts and hoodies, they made their way into Harder Stadium on Tuesday afternoon until its 17,000 bleacher seats filled. They then took to the 1,800 chairs on the field, and when those filled up, they sat down on the grass. The 20,000-person crowd had quadrupled in size from three nights prior, when thousands held candles as they silently marched from Storke Plaza to Anisq’Oyo’ Park in Isla Vista and provided each other with solace in the form of stories and solidarity. The UCSB students and the greater Isla Vista community were just days removed from the kind of atrocity that hurts badly enough when it happens somewhere else but produces a whole new pain


Katherine was a dancer. A 22-year-old from Chino Hills, Cooper was called “mama bear” by her sorority sisters because she was selfless and generous. A member of the Delta Delta Delta chapter, Cooper studied art history and classics at UCSB. “Katie was such a strong individual and had the most optimistic outlook on life,” said one of her Tri Delta sisters. She often wore patriotic clothing and frequently sprinkled herself in glitter. She always went above and beyond, making an extra effort to help others, and was considered an inspiration by her friends. Less than 24 hours after her tragic death, a few friends spoke to a silent crowd at the candlelit vigil.“Your dance moves are beautiful,” said one speaker.“I won’t forget you, Katie. Please continue to dance.” 14

when it happens in the idyllic streets of your home. But even in the face of such horror — six of their friends and classmates killed — the UCSB students sought comfort in each other and in their community, inspiring hashtags like #ivstrong and #gauchostrong and promising to be there for each other in the difficult times ahead. Santa Barbara has been in mourning since, with the region’s residents and elected representatives joining in the students’ grief. Other University of California campuses have shown their support, organizing vigils and sending their counselors to console the UCSB students. And on Tuesday, the students continued to be there for each other, hugging, crying, and, at one point, even laughing together as they looked back on the last five days and ahead to the future.




Veronika always wore Converse shoes on her feet and a smile on her face. A vibrant 19-yearold who hailed from Westlake Village, Weiss belonged to the Delta Delta Delta sorority and attended UCSB to study financial math and statistics. An impressive water polo player, Weiss was the captain of her high school team. She loved sports and rooted for the Seattle Seahawks. Her captivating persona was felt by those close to her. “She spent more time at the chapter house with us than anywhere else on campus,” said one sorority sister. “Her enthusiasm for life motivated us to become better versions of ourselves.” Weiss’s humor had a way of brightening those around her. Family and friends gathered in Westlake, wearing sports gear and purple, her favorite color, to honor her memory.


David was peaceful and self-controlled. A 20-year-old computer engineering student, Wang arrived at UCSB from Fremont, California. He was born in China and emigrated to the United States a number of years ago. A devout Christian, Wang is fondly remembered by faculty and staff at his former high school in northern California. “He was a wonderful young man,” recalled Superintendent Tricia Meyer. Wang was a hard worker and a high achiever. He especially liked to play basketball, and he was a Lakers fan, according to his Facebook page.“We will learn to love people for the rest of our lives, as you did,” his parents wrote in a statement shared with the community at the Tuesday memorial held in Harder Stadium for the six who died last Friday, May 23.

MEMORIAL OF MANY: More than 20,000 people attended Tuesday’s memorial service at UCSB’s Harder Stadium, from Isla Vista residents and UCSB students to the broader Santa Barbara population and dignitaries from around California.


George was a gentle soul. Written on a note placed at a memorial outside of the apartment building where he tragically lost his life, a message said Chen brought joy to the people around him. “You will be missed,” a childhood friend wrote. The 19-yearold Chen was born in Canada and lived in San Jose before attending UCSB. He was remembered for being a good kid and smart in school. Chen studied computer engineering and enjoyed playing video games — he preferred multiplayer ones — with friends. A memorial for Chen and the two other boys killed at the Capri Apartments is packed with flowers and candles. Messages marked in chalk read “forever in our hearts” and “Gaucho strong.”

CHRISTOPHER ROSS MICHAELS-MARTINEZ Christopher had a habit of blowing away his instructors with his papers, such as one he wrote on feminine desire in Paradise Lost. It was clear that the sophomore’s professors were impressed with his astuteness when several spoke at a memorial organized by the UCSB English Department last Tuesday. Friends from his freshman dorm, Santa Cruz Hall, also recalled his intellectual precociousness but noted that it was paired with a lot of typical 20-year-old antics — he once dressed up as a girl to sneak into a frat party, for example. He constantly played Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” on his iPod, had a crush on Selena Gomez, and was addicted to AriZona Iced Tea. He was a fierce competitor on the basketball court, but his friends described the aspiring lawyer as “selfless.” “He was going to be a lifelong friend,” said former dorm mate Natasha Moss.


James was a giver. A nature lover, 20-year-old Hong was involved in various campaigns to protect the environment. “He was so gung ho,” remembered a fellow volunteer. “He had such a big smile that everyone talked to him ....Who could say no to that smile?” Hong was born in Taipei and later moved to San Jose. At UCSB, he was a computer science student who carried a satchel everywhere he went, said another friend. He is remembered for his compassion and spontaneous attitude. “I remember going to the butterfly reserve with Tropicana del Norte last year, watching James become immersed in the beauty around us,” recalled friend Tyler Fazil, adding that he has spent the last few days searching for the pictures from that day in an attempt to grasp a physical memory. “The world may be filled with malicious intentions, but James is the symbol of kindness.” —KELSEY BRUGGER, WITH BRANDON FASTMAN COURTESY PHOTOS

SURVIVAL CONT'D FROM P. 14 On the night of Friday, May 23, Isla Vista resident Elliot Rodger, 22, began a rampage on the college town’s streets, shooting three young people dead after stabbing three others to death in his apartment. He then killed himself, ending what he said in his videos and writings was a life of loneliness brought about by women’s rejections. Thirteen others were injured — all are expected to make full recoveries — either by bullets or trauma from Rodger’s car (the cause of one injury is still unclear). His public massacre lasted just 10 minutes but took away the lifetimes of Katie Cooper, 22; Veronika Weiss, 19; Christopher Michaels-Martinez, 20; Cheng Yuan “James” Hong, 20; George Chen, 19; and Weihan “David” Wang, 20. The question of why might not ever have an answer, many said on Tuesday. But questions about treatment of mental illness (or lack thereof), of gun control (spearheaded by Michaels-Martinez’s father), and of how men view women (noted on social media by


candlelit vigil the students organized the day after — where they told equally humorous and heartbreaking tales of their departed friends — dismissed that notion entirely. So did Tuesday’s memorial, with some help from Michaels-Martinez’s dad, Richard Martinez. He started with a story about how when Chris was 8 years old, he wanted to play football. Richard was hesitant, he said, but Chris did it anyway. At a scrimmage his dad went to with him, Chris got knocked over by a fullback, Richard remembered, recalling how he thought, “Oh my God, he must be hurt.” But to his father’s surprise, Chris “hopped back up” and “walked determinedly” back to the game. “That’s the kind of kid Chris was,” Richard said. Diverging in his story, temporarily, Richard, whose grief has joined anger at the National Rifle Association and the politicians who support it, roused the crowd from their sorrow. He got them to stand up and chant,“Not one more!” as a call to end gun violence (and a

Also discussed by students has been the national media’s role in their tragedy, with students protesting the presence of broadcast vans on every Isla Vista curb. Though reeling, Isla Vistans are very vocal in their gratitude to the authorities who helped prevent the rampage from worsening; they adorned a “Thank You” banner on the outside wall of the Foot Patrol’s headquarters, which continues to pick up new signatures of support. They have thanked the paramedics for responding rapidly, the doctors for saving the 13 injured, and the counselors for being there for them now and in the weeks to come. And if there was any inkling that Isla Vista, making headlines in recent months for gang rapes and a Deltopia riot, was a community divided, the

now-popular hashtag itself on social media, with thousands of posts in minutes). He even got them to laugh, admitting he didn’t know what a hashtag was but joking that they don’t know what postcards are. But what Richard did know was a story about football and what Chris’s actions in a scrimmage could teach the students, faculty, and Isla Vista community about life.“Like Christopher that day,” his dad said,“I want you to get back up and walk determinedly forward.” In the following pages, you’ll find complete coverage of the tragedy and its aftermath from The Santa Barbara Independent’s news team — many of us Gauchos ourselves — as we and the rest of Santa Barbara try to understand what happened … and what happens next. —LYZ HOFFMAN

ust two weeks before Elliot Rodger exploded in his now infamous, premeditated fury, Toni Wellen, a professional therapist and longtime gun-control activist, contacted Santa Barbara County supervisors Janet Wolf and Salud Carbajal. She wanted them to reconsider a measure that could compel mentally ill residents to undergo outpatient treatment. The measure, known as Laura’s Law, passed the California Legislature in 2002 after a mentally ill man shot to death a young woman, Laura Wilcox, and two others. Laura’s parents, Amanda and Nick Wilcox, browbeat the California Legislature into reluctantly approving the bill which they felt would assist parents of adult mentally ill children to get help. The bill, AB , left it to each of the 58 counties to decide if they wanted to implement the measure. Civil libertarians and many mental-health-care advocates derided the bill as an expensive infringement on civil rights. At the time, Santa Barbara administrators estimated they had 500 seriously mentally ill residents who might qualify. Minimal treatment, they estimated, would cost $8 million a year. Since the Legislature had provided no funding, the county has consistently opted not to participate.

Brown declined to elaborate at his May 24 news conference. But based on the multiple depressed and disturbing videos Rodger had posted and his 140-page manifesto, he might well have qualified, but maybe not. Much of the second-guessing now taking place focuses on the welfare check conducted by four Sheriff ’s deputies on April 30 at the instigation of Rodger’s mother. She expressed concern that she had not heard from her son in some time. When Sheriff ’s deputies arrived at Rodger’s Isla Vista residence, he had already had at least one violent altercation that had come to the department’s attention, and he had already purchased three handguns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. The guns were all purchased legally and duly registered in Rodger’s name. What remains unknown, however, is whether the deputies had checked the Department of Justice gun registration files, which were easily accessible to them, before speaking to Rodger. And if they did, whether they asked him about his guns. Nor is the department releasing specifics of his mother’s concerns. These details remain part CONT'D ON P. 20

of what the Sheriff ’s Office spokesperson describes as an “ongoing investigation.” As such, they remain off-limits to public review. What Brown explained instead is that Rodger presented himself to the deputies in a convincing manner and did not appear to pose an imminent danger to himself or others; the latter is the requirement under state law for the involuntary detention of the mentally ill. In one account, deputies called his mother and, after talking with her son, she was reassured. Such checks have become a routine part of the daily grind for law enforcement professionals. Last year, the Santa Barbara City Police Department, a much smaller agency, conducted about 10 a day. Many, said spokesperson Riley Harwood, involved the mentally ill. Harwood said city police officers are always accompanied by mental-health professionals to help make a proper assessment. “There’s a big difference between a delusional schizophrenic,” he explained,“and someone with a personality disorder.” Ann Eldridge, now vice president of the local chapter of the National Alliance on Mentally Illness, said Sheriff ’s deputies lack the training to make a proper assessment.“You need a real professional to show up at the door with the deputy,” she said.“You just do.” But the first time county executives deliberated over Laura’s Law, the biggest problem was lack of money. And it didn’t help that many in the mental-health community worried about the civil rights implications. However, much has changed. Just last year, State Senator Darrell Steinberg successfully pushed through a bill that allows counties willing to implement Laura’s Law to tap into Proposition ’s funding. That initiative was passed by voters statewide in 2004. Until then, only tiny Nevada County had opted in. According to a report just issued by the Nevada County Grand Jury, the program wound up saving the county $500,000 in the first two-and-a-half years of implementation. For every dollar spent on treatment, the grand jury concluded, the county saved $1.81 in incarceration and other costs. With funding now available, the Nevada County report has been seized by Orange County supervisors to justify voting in favor of Laura’s Law two weeks ago, the first large county to do so. Supervisors in San Francisco, where the number of mentally ill on the streets

are legion, as well as in Contra Costa and Los Angeles counties, are all poised to follow suit. Santa Barbara County supervisors, encouraged by mental-health activist Wellen, have expressed an interest in resurrecting the issue, supported by the county’s acting mentalhealth chief, Dr. Takashi Wada. And this was before Rodger’s murderous spree. While Laura’s Law might offer some relief, it’s not clear how much it could have helped Elliot Rodger. In recent years, he’d refused to take an anti-psychotic medication prescribed by his psychiatrist. Rodger disparaged the therapeutic care and attention — since age 8 — that his parents had paid for as “a waste of money.” Still, he reportedly appeared open to a locally administered program that taught people the life skills needed for socially tonedeaf individuals with Asperger’s syndrome, which Rodger supposedly had. The insurance required to pay for a key component of this program, however, was denied shortly before his shooting spree. School shootings invariably raise the hope, or specter depending on one’s perspective, of greater gun control, and Rodger’s drive-by blitzkrieg is no exception. Hard-core guncontrol advocates, such as Toni Wellen and Amanda Wilcox, concede California’s background screening requirements are the most stringent in the nation. But because Rodger had never been the subject of an involuntary psychiatric hold, he passed with flying colors. Assemblymember Das Williams announced he intends to coauthor a bill allowing family members and mental-health professionals to file the equivalent of a restraining order, challenging the rights of a mentally ill individual to own or purchase firearms. Due process would have to be followed, and evidence submitted to a judge. But if cause were found, Williams said, the action would prevent such a person from purchasing handguns.“I don’t know if his parents knew he had guns or not, but they knew he posed some kind of danger,” Williams said.“I don’t pretend to be omniscient enough to know whether this would have prevented what happened in Isla Vista, but it would give his parents a medium to redress his access to firearms.” Williams said he’s cosponsoring the bill with Assemblymember Nancy Skinner from Berkeley and State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson. ■


TEN MINUTES OF TERROR On Friday night, May 23, 2014,

Santa Barbara Independent reporter Tyler Hayden and photographer Paul Wellman were on the streets of Isla Vista just 20 minutes after the first 9-1-1 calls came in to Santa Barbara County dispatchers. What follows is a condensed version of events as they were known at press time.

VEHICLE AS WEAPON: Elliot Rodger and his black BMW, which he aimed at bicyclists (as seen below), skateboarders, and pedestrians, came to a final resting place on the 6500 block of Del Playa Drive on Friday night. MULTIPLE SHOTS FIRED: At 9:27 p.m., dispatchers

began receiving calls reporting multiple gunshots fired in Isla Vista near the town’s central loop. Isla Vista Foot Patrol deputies began running to the area. They immediately came across several victims and started performing first aid. Dispatchers, responding to an escalating flood of 9-1-1 calls, sent first responders, which included UCSB Police officers, Sheriff ’s deputies, and units from the Santa Barbara Police Department and the Highway Patrol, to 10 different locations. The whole street rampage lasted only about 10 minutes leaving three UCSB students dead and 13 people injured: eight from bullets, four were hit by the assailant’s car, and one by unknown means. All are expected to make full recoveries. The assailant, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, appears to have killed himself shortly before being apprehended by deputies. Three more bodies, roommates of Rodger, were later discovered at Capri Apartments in the  block of Seville Road in what was described as a “pretty horrific crime scene” by Sheriff Bill Brown. At a press conference on the afternoon of May 24, the sheriff walked the media through the chronology of the violent events. Pointing to a map of Isla Vista marked

I.V. EMBRACE: The Isla Vista community started healing immediately following the shootings, with candlelit vigils on campus and spontaneous memorials throughout town, including the one being honored by this couple in front of the I.V. Deli.

with the crime scenes [see page 15], Brown described how, after stabbing to death the three young UCSB students in his apartment, Rodger traveled to the Alpha Phi sorority house in the  block of Embarcadero del Norte. In his YouTube video posted the day before the killings, Rodger, after blaming rejections from women as the reason for his life of “loneliness” and “unfulfilled desires,” said in a slow monotone,“On the day of retribution, I am going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB, and I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up, blond slut I see inside there.”

Several Alpha Phi members heard “loud and aggressive” knocking at the house’s front door that lasted for approximately two minutes. When they refused to open the door, Rodger, according to a witness, shot three young women standing nearby. Katie Cooper and Veronika Weiss, members of Delta Delta Delta sorority, were fatally wounded, and a third victim [as of press time unidentified] suffered multiple gunshot wounds. This victim was discovered by a young man who had run to the scene from a nearby apartment after hearing the gunshots. He found her speaking to her mother on a cell phone, saying that she was afraid that she was going to die. The man who had knelt to help her, spoke to her mother, trying to reassure her that her daughter would be okay. Responders arrived quickly.

Park. He opened fire at them, and three of the deputies shot back, striking Rodger’s car and hitting him in the left hip area. Rodger turned south onto El Embarcadero before driving back onto Del Playa Drive, where he sped into another bicyclist, who was thrown onto the hood of his car and smashed through its windshield. Rodger collided with several parked cars before coming to a stop. When deputies reached the scene, they found Rodger dead with a gunshot wound to his head. Sheriff Brown said it appears Rodger had taken his own life. No deputies were injured in the two firefights. HEAVY WEAPONRY: At

the crash scene, deputies discovered inside the BMW three semiautomatic 9mm handguns. Two were SIG Sauer P pistols, and one was a GLOCK  Long Slide. All of the weapons were legally purchased from federally licensed firearm dealers and were registered to Rodger, Brown reported at the press conference. Rodger bought one in Goleta, one in Oxnard, and one in Burbank. In addition to the guns, Rodger was in possession of 34 loaded 10-round magazines for the SIG Sauers and seven loaded 10-round magazines for the GLOCK. The response on the streets in the hours after the rampage was mixed.

Mass Murderers David Attias and Elliot Rodger: Has History Repeated Itself in I.V.?

n the deadly aftermath of Elliot Rodger’s psychotic and suicidal shooting spree that left six others dead in Isla Vista and another 13 wounded, the muted echoes of David Attias — who killed four people in Isla Vista 12 years ago — will be bouncing off Isla Vista’s blood-stained streets for some time to come. In 2001, Attias, then a UCSB freshman with a long history of severe mental illness, plowed his black Saab into a crowded Isla Vista street, killing four and wounding others. Attias, who was filmed at the scene hopping around the dead bodies and proclaiming himself the “angel of death,” attributed his action to frustration over lack of sexual contact, just as Rodger had lamented his own virginity. Attias was tried for murder and achieved the rare distinction of being found not guilty by reason of insanity. Two years ago, Santa Barbara Judge Thomas Adams ruled that Attias had recovered his sanity and ordered him released from a state facility for the criminally insane. Presumably, he is still living in a supervised group home and receiving supervised therapy. Both Attias and Rodger struggled with significant mental-health issues. Before Rodger moved to Santa Barbara from the Los Angeles area to attend Santa Barbara City College, his mother and psychiatrist had sought to set up a range of mental-health services to enable Rodger to safely navigate the challenges of a new environment. But just two days before the shooting occurred, Rodger was reportedly denied the insurance coverage to pay for such help. In addition, the fathers of both killers were successful in the television and motion-picture industry. Daniel

Attias, David’s father, was an accomplished television director. Rodger’s father, Peter Rodger, was assistant director of The Hunger Games, both critically acclaimed and commercially successful, not to mention the writer and director of a documentary about the nature of God. For UCSB, the Attias tragedy provided a much-needed wake-up call, prompting campus officials to, among other things, take more proactive steps in providing students alternative methods of recreation and letting off steam. While some of those programs have yielded modest but steady results, events of the past year clearly demonstrate that Isla Vista remains an urban pressure cooker. I.V.’S GROWING TENSION: This year’s much-berated Deltopia celebration, for example, erupted into an outof-control riot seven weeks ago. To restore order, Sheriff Bill Brown had to call for backup from every nearby law enforcement agency, and his deputies used so much tear gas that they had to order more. Just four weeks before Deltopia, Sheriff ’s deputies and the Isla Vista Foot Patrol had to quell a Saturday-night mini-riot. In both instances, law enforcement officials have blamed outsiders for instigating the violence. While statistically correct, this explanation fails to acknowledge the mounting tension, aggression, and sexual violence simmering throughout the campus and Isla Vista. The laissez-faire attitude of the community at large toward Isla Vista’s bacchanalian extravagance was at least temporarily shocked earlier this year by two violent gang rapes. And while UCSB has yet to attain the notoriety of other universities tainted by allegations of sexual assaults,

Who Was Elliot Rodger?

AGE: 22 PARENTS AND FAMILY: Father is Peter Rodger, a Hollywood film assistant

director of The Hunger Games and director of the documentary Oh My God. Mother is Malaysian nurse Lichin “Chin” Rodger, who met Peter on a movie set. Both his mother and father tried to track Rodger down on Friday night after seeing his latest video and manifesto. Sister Georgia is 18. Stepmother, whom he planned to kill, is actress Soumaya Akaaboune. Also has a six-yearold brother, whom he planned to kill as well out of jealousy.

UPBRINGING: Born in the United Kingdom, moved to the United States when 5 years old, lived in Woodland Hills and Calabasas. Attended multiple high schools in the San Fernando Valley, then Moorpark College, and, most recently, Santa Barbara City College, which is why he moved to Isla Vista in June 2011. TROUBLES IN ISLA VISTA: “I have tried very hard to fit in with the social

scene there, but I have ultimately been unable to do so,” wrote Rodger, who lived at the Capri Apartments on Seville Road.“There are too many obnoxious people who have ruined my whole experience at that place.” According to his neighbors, Rodger interacted little with the other residents, often became infuriated when he passed couples in the courtyard, and spent quite a bit of time alone sitting in his parked car.“He wasn’t someone you could approach,” said one neighbor, who noticed Rodger sitting in his car around 8:30 p.m. last Friday, May 23, with his laptop propped up on his lap, just an hour before the horrific scene unfolded. Many Capri residents did take note when law enforcement showed up to the apartment twice this school year: in January, over the report that Rodger’s roommate stole candles from him, and again this past April, when they performed a welfare check on Rodger following concerned calls from his mother.

This may appear a superficial distinction, but for those laboring to find longterm solutions to the urban dysfunction that is Isla Vista, it’s anything but. SBCC, now ranked the top city college in the nation — not just the state — has long been known as a backdoor into the UC system for low-achieving high school graduates. As community colleges throughout the state sought to weather the draconian budget cuts accompanying the Great Recession, they increasingly began recruiting out-ofstate and out-of-country students to whom they could charge much higher tuition. SBCC’s swelling enrollment of outof-towners may have helped the school’s bottom line, but it’s taken a toll on Santa Barbara’s ever-Darwinian rental-housing market. The allure of Isla Vista has proved irresistible for growing legions of City College students. According to recent census reports, there are approximately 3,0005,000 of City College’s 23,000 students now living there. UCSB officials have sought to put a damper on the party-hearty exuberance that sends so many students to Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital’s emergency room SINISTER SIMILARITIES: Like Isla Vista shooter Elliot Rodger, David Attias (seen every weekend for alcohol poisoning. above during his trial) comes from a well-to-do Hollywood family and was known One idea was for the university to buy up to be troubled before his attack. existing I.V. rental units and install resident managers to keep adult eyes on the CONT'D FROM P. 24 students.

No girls liked me, and I hate them all for it.” He details his contempt of young couples in love and also expresses insecurity about being half-Asian as well as animosity toward full-blooded Asians, such as the roommates he killed after calling them “repulsive” in his 141-page manifesto, which was sent to his therapists and parents and published online just hours before the rampage.

ARROGANT, COMBATIVE IN PERSON: Rodger had numerous run-ins with other people in Isla Vista, splashing coffee on couples and women, squirting kickballers with orange juice, and, in August 2013, provoking a fight that left him with a broken ankle. George Duarte, a KCSB . FM radio deejay who goes by the name Xtek Overload, remembers Rodger from the SBCC Math Lab last fall. “He was always talking about the same thing: how annoying his roommates were, how he’s gonna move to a different place,” said Duarte, who thought Rodger was “arrogant” but did not find him to be “bonkers.” Instead, Duarte recalled thinking, “Some of the stuff he said sounded right-on — he was very logical, very well spoken. This kid is one of those successes. He’s gonna go places. He had that aura about him and the ego to go with it.” —MATT KETTMANN AND KELSEY BRUGGER

Both Sides Score Points


Gang Injunction Trial Slated to End This Week



ver the past three weeks, attorneys on both sides of the proposed gang injunction have been landing solid points during the trial. Closing arguments are scheduled to take place in Judge Colleen Sterne’s courtroom later this week. On Tuesday, Santa Barbara Police Detective Gary Siegel acknowledged that between November 2010 and August 2013, there was no evidence that Francisco Anaya had been involved in any criminal or gang-related activity. Anaya’s defense attorney William Makler noted that his client, an alleged Eastside gang member and one of the 11 defendants specifically named by City Hall in its injunction lawsuit, has been employed for the past seven years at Westmont College. He’s argued that his client is no longer active in the gang life and that he certainly doesn’t qualify as one of “the worst of the worst,” the phrase used by Police Chief Cam Sanchez to describe those named in the injunction when it was first proposed three-and-a-half years ago. During that time, Anaya, who still has gang tattoos, had only one minor citation when he refused a police order to stop while walking past a fight that occurred near his home. Anaya denied being involved in the fight, and the police have no evidence to contradict him. When the injunction was first proposed, 30 individuals were named, but two weeks before the trial began, only 11 names remained. The missing 19 people are now either serving lengthy sentences in state or federal prisons or have dropped out of gang life. Makler expressed surprise that his client was not among those removed from the list and is hoping his client’s clean record will persuade the judge to do so. Likewise, defense attorney Michael Hanley, with the Public Defender’s office, who represents Christian “Tweety” Botello, questioned the accuracy of police maps purporting to show the extent of gang activity within city limits between 2010 and 2013. While cross-examining Det. Siegel, the department’s foremost gang expert, Hanley established that the dramatic splatter of dots on a map denoting gang incidents failed to distinguish between gang-involved acts (those done specifically to further a street gang) and those that were committed by gang members but not necessarily part of gang activity. This would include, he argued, parole and curfew violations. By lumping such minor “gang involved” incidents with “gang related,” Hanley suggested, the Police Department created a gang-incident map that visually exaggerated the true extent of the gang problem. Defense attorneys readily concede that Santa Barbara criminal street gangs exist in Santa Barbara, but they contend the injunction is not necessary, because gang crime rates have been dropping. They believe this proves that traditional methods of law enforcement are handling the problem and that the gang injunction is an unnecessary and extraordinary method. Combating this picture was prosecuting



Attorney John Morken, executor of Huguette Clark’s estate, is seeking the return of $105 million in gifts to doctors and Beth Israel Hospital employees, claiming Clark was “incapacitated.” But according to hospital officials, Clark, who died at the hospital at age 104 in 2011, was sane enough, for instance, to follow the stock market and the 2000 Bush-Gore election recount, according to the New York Post. The dispute is now in the hands of a New York Surrogate’s Court judge. Meanwhile, the annual tax assessment for Clark’s Bellosguardo estate on East Beach apparently jumped from $22,295 in 2011 to the present $491,000. Adding maintenance and other costs, the annual budget may be pushing $1 million.

INJUNCTION FUNCTION: Prosecutors say the gang injunction is necessary to keep Raymond

Macias, an alleged tax collector for the Mexican Mafia, under check. Defense attorneys claim gang members are getting put away just fine without any injunction.

attorney Hilary Dozer, who emphasized the role played by the Mexican Mafia, a prison-based gang notorious for brutality and effectiveness within Santa Barbara gang circles. Under questioning from Dozer, Siegel outlined in some detail the transformation of Ray Macias in 1997 from a low-level street hoodlum with a weakness for heroin affiliated with the Eastside Krazies to the Mexican Mafia’s chief tax collector for all of Santa Barbara County. Macias is currently on trial in Santa Maria for torture and extortion involving a Lompoc drug dealer who failed to pay “taxes” to the Mexican Mafia. During a search of his home in connection with that arrest, Siegel said, police found Western Union receipts from Macias to Michael Moreno, a known Mexican Mafia leader now serving time in state prison. According to Siegel, Macias wired money into accounts controlled by Moreno. Macias has insisted that he did not direct or approve the torture that took place, that he was not present when it started, and that when he arrived, he ordered it stopped. His defense attorney noted that the witnesses against Macias have all received reduced sentences in exchange for their testimony. In recent years, Macias also played a leadership role with the nonprofit Palabra, made up of former gang members who counseled active members against violent behavior. Law enforcement has expressed deep concern over the group because Palabra has expressly not urged individuals to renounce gangs, but instead to keep a lid on violent actions. As gang violence has declined in recent years, Palabra has taken partial credit, explaining that its members were

showing up at hot spots and successfully putting out fires before they ignited. Whatever the merits of this claim, it dovetails into the prosecution’s theory that gang violence has dropped throughout Santa Barbara because the Mexican Mafia ordered it. The most celebrated prosecution witness, Arthur Nevarez, whom the District Attorney’s office dramatically called Mister X, is a former Eastside leader looking at 87 years to life. He testified the Mexican Mafia ordered gang activity reduced pending resolution of the gang injunction trial. The Mexican Mafia, he testified, has recently “claimed” Santa Barbara, meaning drug dealers in gang territories have to pay taxes or risk violent retribution. In exchange for Nevarez’s testimony, charges of torture and extortion were dropped. If those dropped charges were still alleged in the trial, defense witnesses contend, Nevarez would have no hope of ever getting out of prison. Before closing arguments, the defense put on seven witnesses who live in one of the two major gang “safety zones.” All testified that they do not live in fear of gang violence and that gangs do not constitute the “intolerable nuisance” that, by law, Judge Sterne must find in order to grant the injunction. Likewise, the defense presented a UCSB professor who testified that gang injunctions have only limited benefits for the affected communities and then only for short durations. According to scholarly peer-reviewed studies, gang injunctions have been linked with crime reductions of up to 11 percent in some communities, but according to the defense, those reductions do not last. ■

A 19-year-old man who reportedly strangled his girlfriend and seriously beat a 5-month-old puppy was arrested on 5/20. Officers responded to a veterinary hospital on 5/14 when an employee called because a miniature pinscher had been brought in with broken bones, cuts, and burns; it is likely to be euthanized. According to police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood, the owner had left her puppy with her boyfriend, Duanying Chen (pictured) — a Chinese citizen here on a student visa — and found it hiding under a table when she returned. Chen said the puppy had fallen off a ping-pong table. The police investigation determined the two had had a heated argument, during which Chen allegedly tried to strangle the 21-year-old woman at their home on Monterey Street. Chen is booked in County Jail on $75,000 bail; his arraignment is set for 6/20.

CITY Samy’s Camera will be moving to 530 State Street in July, announced Hayes Commercial Group, to a 11,450-square-foot space — the largest space leased by a store downtown in the last three years. “This move will place Samy’s in the heart of the retail and pedestrian corridor … all positives for their business,” said Kristopher Roth, a broker for Hayes. Samy’s was born in Los Angeles in 1976 and has since expanded to seven stores throughout the state, including one in Santa Barbara for the past 22 years.

Santa Barbara County officials confirmed this week that a particularly aggressive hive of bees discovered earlier this spring in Goleta has the genetic markers of the Africanized honeybee, the type of bees infamously and, in most cases, erroneously labeled as “killer bees.” The hive, near the intersection of Glen Annie cont’d page 30  and Cathedral Oaks, was may 29, 2014

reportedly particularly aggressive, or as Santa Barbara Beekeepers Association’s Todd Bebb described them, “a spicy group.” Bebb & Co. relocated the hive to a private residence in Carpinteria. Africanized bees were first confirmed here in 2002 — and beekeepers believe most hives in the wilds of Southern California show some traces of “killer bee” ancestry — but Bebb pointed out there has never been a confirmed “aggressive attack” on people or animals in the county. The Beekeepers Association is currently researching “re-Queening” aggressive hives as a potential solution to the unfolding bee mortality problem. A display commemorating teenagers who died while serving in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars was at Santa Barbara High School on 5/23 in honor of Memorial Day. The school’s Social Justice Club teamed up with Veterans for Peace and other community members to demonstrate the fatal results of war. More than 400 placards of names and photographs of 18- and 19-year-olds who died while in the service were displayed, and student and staff participants read their names in the quad at noon. Numerous Memorial Day observances were held around the county on 5/26.


With less than two weeks to Election Day, the Santa Barbara Police Officers Association (POA) announced on 5/22 that it had endorsed incumbent Janet Wolf in her bid for reelection to 2nd District Supervisor against Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves. The organization had previously decided to stay out of the race, deferring to the Deputy Sheriff’s Association (DSA), which had endorsed Aceves. But “some pretty big issues” — Measure M and county pensions — caused the group to change its mind, said POA president Sgt. Mike McGrew. Wolf’s public-safety endorsements include County Firefighters, City Firefighters, and the Deputy District Attorneys Association. Aceves — who served in local law enforcement for more than 30 years, first for the Sheriff’s Department and then for the Santa Barbara Police Department — has the DSA’s backing as well as support from the state and tri-county chapters of the Peace Officers Research Association of California. Of the POA’s endorsement, Aceves said he took issue with a city group getting involved in a county matter. The 2nd District includes portions of the City of Goleta, the City of Santa Barbara, and the unincorporated region in between. “Vague generalities” battled “an awful lot of hype” on 5/22 when about cont’d page 33 

Curse of Chapala One Continues

The curse afflicting Chapala One condominiums at 401 Chapala Street is far from over despite the relatively recent arrival of a new owner, Michael Rosenfeld; a brand-new name, “The Sevilla”; and actual sales of at least eight of the highend condos with another six in escrow. Litigation continues to engulf previous owner Don Hughes — and his nowbankrupt contractor Mark Melchiori — even though a jury ruled in Melchiori’s favor two years ago, finding that Hughes owed his contractor $6 million. An appeals court ruled that Judge Denise de Bellefeuille acted improperly when she did not allow jurors to hear how Hughes vowed to put OUT OF THE WOODS? Chapala One, “that wop bastard” out of business when once infamous, has been renamed “The speaking of Melchiori — “wop” being Sevilla,” interior repairs have been made, an ethnic slur for Americans of Italian and the condos are selling. But litigation descent. The Court of Appeal found that the still dogs the previous owner, and comment indicated a degree of personal affordable units remain up for grabs. animus, which if admitted, would have allowed Melchiori to seek punitive damages against Hughes in addition to the $6 million the jurors said Melchiori was owed. The new proceeding is scheduled to begin in Judge James Herman’s court June 25 — Herman is, curiously, the husband of original trial judge de Bellefeuille — though when the second trial begins remains up in the air. Chapala One generated massive controversy during its construction six years ago, going millions of dollars over budget and taking much longer than estimated. It spurred an initiative fight over city height limits, the single-most expensive election in city history. Now, after sinking millions in repairs to faulty waterproofing, Rosenfeld is listing condos at $750,000-$2.5 million. Eleven are designated “middle class” affordable, which translates to 450-square-foot studios for $167,000 and a threebedroom unit at $324,000. Qualified buyers can make no more than $81,000 and $125,000, respectively. The lottery run five years ago has two remaining eligible buyers, and the city is checking to see if it can muster 11 from remaining applicants or must — Nick Welsh run the lottery again.

Congress Candidates Money Count


BY LY Z H O F F M A N ive of the nine candidates running for the th District Congressional seat beefed up their campaign coffers in recent weeks, one hasn’t raised more money since the last filing deadline, and the other three haven’t received any money. The top two vote-getters in the June 3 primary will head to the November election. Incumbent Democrat Lois Capps remains in the fundraising lead, upping her campaign wallet from $1.3 million to $1.4 million, with just more than $1 million on hand. Capps hasn’t taken on any debt to pay for her campaign, unlike some of her challengers, and hasn’t donated any of her own money to her efforts, either. Most of her money came from individual donors (including trash magnate Mario Borgatello, who gave $2,500 each to Capps and rival Dale Francisco), with most of the rest coming from political action committees.

Republican Justin Fareed remains Capps’s biggest financial challenger, amassing $304,328 — $160,305 of which he loaned himself. Fareed reported $96,866 on hand and $209,601 in debt. Francisco, a Republican Santa Barbara City Councilmember, has scored $159,150, mostly from individual donors and $32,000 from himself; Francisco has $5,699 available and $56,959 owed. Republican Chris Mitchum, who has challenged Capps before, increased his coffers to $119,832 from $78,582. He loaned himself an extra $30,000, increasing his own donations to $92,000; he has $12,893 on hand and $161,485 in debt. Dr. Bradley Allen, a Republican, saw his donations jump from $4,041 to $28,921, with $14,970 available. Conservative Democrat Paul Coyne Jr. hasn’t reported any additional money to his $64,629 previously disclosed. Candidates Steve Isakson, Sandra Marshall, and Cynthia Alexis Stuart continue ■ to report no donations.

DEATHS Chris Whitcraft, one of the seminal figures in the growth of Santa Barbara’s wine country and an early pioneer of the now-burgeoning urban wine scene, passed away over the weekend at age 64. Whitcraft began working at the Mayfare Wines store in Montecito in 1975 and was making his own wine later that year under the Whitcraft label, which specialized in pinot noir and chardonnay. He helped launch the Santa Barbara Wine Festival in 1980, which continues every June at the Museum of Natural History, and his was one of the first wineries to operate within city limits when he opened his facility on Calle César Chávez in 2006. He is survived by his daughter, Alyssa, and son, Drake, who now runs the winery. They are planning a party to celebrate their dad’s life, likely in late June. ■

What the Shale?!

The punch lines of a long-anticipated U.S. Energy Information Administration study were made public last week and, according to the federal government’s findings, there isn’t nearly as much extractable oil in California’s large swaths of Monterey Shale, the rocky and mineral-rich substrata beneath some 1,700 square miles of Central California (including swaths of Santa Barbara County) that was previously believed to be home to a gold rush of untapped petroleum reserves. In fact, according to the new report, roughly 600 million barrels of harvestable crude is down in the shale versus the 13.7 billion barrels estimated by a similar study done by an independent contractor in 2011. Though the full report won’t be released in its entirety until next month, the early findings seem to deliver a deflating blow to the revved-up corporate oil speculating that has been steadily increasing throughout the state as well as here in Santa Barbara since the bullish forecast of the 2011 report. This is of particular note since the newest oil-industry boogeyman, hydraulic facturing (a k a fracking), has also been on a steady increase in lockstep with this speculation boom. However, according to the county’s Energy Division Deputy Director Kevin Drude, this new report most likely won’t have much impact on the plans of oil operators here: “They have been working these fields for 100 years, so they know what is going on down there and have a pretty good idea of what it takes to get the oil out. This study is more about national impacts; I don’t see it changing production technology or forecasts locally at all,” opined Drude this week. He added that currently, there is no fracking happening onshore in Santa Barbara County and that the bulk of the planned new oil operations are cyclic-steaming operations rather than fracking, a technique that focuses on extracting the oil in the diatomite, an area of earth that is markedly more shallow than the Monterey Shale. Bob Poole, spokesperson for Santa Maria Energy, echoed Drude’s interpretations, saying he wasn’t sure the new study has any real meaning for his company or most county operators. “[The study] is focused upon the potential for discovery of new oil fields. Most of what is going on in this county is occurring within fields long known to exist,” added Poole. The study does little to deter the efforts of Water Guardians, an S.B.-based group that, thanks to a sweeping signature campaign this past spring, is spearheading an initiative to ban fracking and cyclic steam on this November’s ballot. If anything, says Guardians spokesperson Katie Davis, the news underscores why exactly the ban is needed. “Pretty shocking to be off by 96 percent!” said Davis. “I think it goes to show that the oil industry’s economic forecasts can in no way be trusted, just as their assurances that their practices are completely safe are patently and demonstrably — Ethan Stewart untrue.” may 29, 2014

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

on the beat

INSTANT CITY: I recall driving past UCSB in the early 1960s with my preschool kids, noticing a flat, near-barren expanse of a few shops and small apartments with single-family homes clustered at the far end. A very few years later, I drove by again and was amazed to find a small city happening, with a forest of absentee-owned, multi-unit apartments rising everywhere. The UC Regents had plunked down a major campus in the middle of virtually nowhere, or so it seemed at the time, and said, “You’re on your own.” The county, heeding pleas by developers, was quick to rezone to allow a dense student ghetto of stucco moneymakers. It was ugly. I recall asking a student why he smoked so much dope. “It makes I.V. go away,” he replied. Since then, my kids matured, attended UCSB, and grew up. Isla Vista (which translates to “island view”) just grew. But put 23,000 people with an average age of 20 in a cramped few blocks, isolated from the main community, and you have kids with a lot of freedom and a lot of time and looking for fun. And outsiders looking for trouble. The main drag, around the Embarcadero loop, is one of California’s densest clusters of humanity, with 13,465 living within the town center of just over a half-acre. And no one’s really in charge. It’s a case of in loco parentis, children running the household instead of mom and dad. All attempts to form a city or at least include I.V. when the City of Goleta was being born

failed. Cityhood attempts failed in 1973, 1975, and 1984. No one wanted this problem child. Today, one of the main problems with this unwanted child is its friends, who swarm from far and near into what they see as Party Central. It’s also become an overcrowded mecca for Santa Barbara City College students. I’ve watched as idealistic civic saviors PERFECT PARK: Gatherings in the 1970s often met where the three like Carmen Lodise, Embarcadero streets formed a loop — about 13,000 people lived in the former “mayor” I.V. then. of I.V., labored long “What has changed is the loss of empowerand hard over the years to save the town from itself.

Isla Vista: The Unwanted Child

independent analysis demonstrated, especially the county-commissioned EIR of 1984. “But I.V. was denied that simple pathway three times by [the county’s] Local Agency Formation Commission [LAFCO] that was 4-1 Republican at a time Isla Vista residents were voting 80-90 percent Democratic. And, of course, such an option was opposed by the UCSB administration, which, in alliance with the county, had created the pressure-cooker community. “Today, I.V. drifts under the failed but absolute control of its overseers — the university and the county. The 2002 Grand Jury concluded that Isla Vista needed more self-government, and I’m expecting that the new Grand Jury looking at Deltopia will conclude the same.” Back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, I spent many hours in a town that seemed bursting with a zesty wave of intellectual and artistic ferment that Santa Barbara lacked. The Red Lion bookstore and Magic Lantern movie art house attracted Santa Barbarans. Linda and Bob Borsodi opened a coffeehouse that offered food, music, and plays. But Vietnam War protests and the burning of the Bank of America changed the mood. Isla Vista, like the U.S. in general, was gradually drained of an idealism it has yet to regain. Could a second renaissance bloom in Isla Vista, or does the UCSB campus itself provide all that young (and older) minds need? — Barney Brantingham

SHERIFF BILL BROWN EARNED HIS STRIPES, BARS AND STARS BEFORE HE PUT ON THE BADGE. Being a sheriff today is too important for on-thejob training. It requires a chief executive who knows the job inside out. Who knows when to enforce and when to listen.

HE LEARNED THE JOB BEFORE HE EARNED THE JOB Bill Brown had nearly three decades of law enforcement experience as a police officer, sergeant, lieutenant, acting captain and chief of police (twice) before being elected sheriff. He has served as our sheriff for more than 7 years with strength, compassion and distinction, and is endorsed for re-election by dozens of community leaders from both sides of the aisle.



Sheriff Bill Brown skillfully spearheaded the north county jail project, obtaining almost $120 million in state funding for this long-needed facility. Since taking office he has improved transparency, crime fighting and prevention, gang and narcotic enforcement, offender reentry, and he returned the D.A.R.E. program to our schools. All of this was achieved while leading the Sheriff’s Office through the toughest financial challenges in its history.

Sheriff Brown earned a Master’s degree in Public Administration from USC, and graduated from some of the nation’s foremost law enforcement leadership institutions, including both the FBI National Academy and the FBI National Executive Institute.

HE IS DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT OTHERS Sheriff Bill Brown serves in leadership roles with organizations such as the North County Rape Crisis & Child Protection Center, Domestic Violence Solutions, the United Boys & Girls Clubs, and the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation. Sheriff Bill Brown has proven he’s an experienced, dedicated and involved leader whose qualifications and achievements have resulted in a safer, stronger and more concerned community.

“I strongly support Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown for reelection. He is one of California’s top law enforcement leaders with a track record of success. He is results-oriented, and has impeccable integrity.” Governor Jerry Brown

On June 3rd, Re-Elect Sheriff Bill Brown.

Mejia, who has been working as a parking attendant for a year, is a student at SBCC, where he is studying to become a teacher. “After working a lot of different jobs, I realized that I wanted a career and to push myself harder,” he added.

Urban Wine

Even hard-core wine aficionados find it hard to stay on top of the explosive growth of downtown Santa Barbara’s Urban Wine Trail, so there’s no better chance to explore and get educated on the latest than this weekend’s Summer Celebration. A $150 ticket gets you an all-access pass that includes a passport to sip at 23 wineries all weekend (May 30-June 1); a seat at the educational seminar on Saturday morning at the Wine Cask, where 10 winemakers will share their insights; and a ticket to the grand tasting on Saturday night at the Carrillo Ballroom, where art from Youth Interactive and a Unity Shoppe benefit auction will also go down.

The Santa Barbara Downtown Organization (DO) just hired a new executive director to oversee its 1,400 self-taxing members and $1.15 million budget. Maggie Campbell is tasked with attracting new business and out-of-town visitors — as well as keeping residents content with the city’s commercial core. Raised in the U.S. and Europe with a father in the Air Force, Campbell earned a history Maggie Campbell degree from the University of Texas. Her first job out of school was working for a city revitalization program in nearby Taylor. Since then, she has worked in similar positions in Pasadena, Dallas, and most recently St. Louis, Missouri. As director, Campbell will focus on boosting events and promotions to extend people’s visits downtown. “Give them reasons to come early, leave later,” she explained. Currently, the DO hosts several regular events and promotions, like 1st Thursday, the State Street Flag Program, the Holiday Parade, and the Art & Wine Tour. It’s also busy with onetime affairs like music and theater shows, expos, lectures, and so on. One of her biggest challenges will be finding gaps in the calendar, Campbell said. “There’s already a lot going on!” A fan of all things outdoors and a lover of live music, Campbell said Santa Barbara’s lifestyle appeals to many of her interests and that she’s excited to get started with the DO. “There are a lot of things they’re doing right, so I’m happy about joining the team.” For a longer version of this story, visit domaggiecampbell. — Tyler Hayden

Time Warner’s Exclusive Deal Keeps Dodgers Off S.B. TV Sets


by John Zant heard Yasiel Puig made a sensational catch last Thursday during the Dodgers-Mets game in New York. Like two-thirds of the Southern California audience, I could not watch the game because the telecast was available only to subscribers of SportsNet LA, the new Time Warner Cable (TWC) network that has not been picked up by any other carriers, including DIRECTV and Cox, which has the cable monopoly in Santa Barbara. SportsNet LA is the exclusive TV outlet for more than 140 Dodgers games this season. As long as Vin Scully is announcing a game, all is not lost, because his Hall of Fame voice is on the radio in the early and late innings. Scully gives such a pleasingly high-definition description of the action that you hardly need a picture. But he no longer travels to games in the East, and this week a bad cold kept the 86-year-old Scully out of the booth at Dodger Stadium. Another drawback is the lack of a Santa Barbara radio outlet for the Dodgers (KTMS once proudly did the job). Good luck getting clear reception from KVEN (1450 AM) in Ventura or KLAC (AM 570) in L.A. As for the TV fiasco, there’s plenty of greed to go around. It is the result of the exorbitant $8.5 billion that Time Warner Cable has committed to pay the Dodgers over the next 25 years, a price that the club’s owners sought to compensate for the billions they paid to purchase the team and to maintain the highest player payroll in baseball. They figured a large portion of that money would be sucked from the TV-watching public, but so far Cox and other providers have balked at paying what TWC is asking. It reportedly would lead to a monthly increase of $4 to subscribers’ bills, whether or not they care about the Dodgers. We went through the same thing at the start of the 2012-13 NBA season, after the Lakers sold TV rights for the majority of their games to Time Warner for a reported $3 billion. Cox Cable held out for just the first week of the regular season before adding TWC’s Lakers channel to the lineup. This blackout of the Dodgers has entered its ninth week — a third of the season lost — with no end in sight. But when the NBA and NHL (Go Kings!) play-offs have run their course, it might seem inconceivable for many households to go the rest of the summer without watching L.A.’s iconic baseball team, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the companies then strike a deal.

HOME SWEET HOME: Santa Barbara’s summer

baseball team, the Foresters, will give fans lots of opportunities to watch games in the best way — from a seat in the ballpark. Beginning with its season opener on Saturday, May 31, the Foresters will play 37 games at UCSB’s Caesar Uyesaka Stadium. In addition, they will host the Rawlings California Cup tournament over the Fourth of July weekend.



Open House from 5pm - 8pm Special Micato Presentation: 6 & 7pm

Santa Barbara Travel Bureau 1028 State Street, Santa Barbara Kindly RSVP: 805-869-1126

LIONS, TIGERS AND SAFARI! NOBLE LEADER: Foresters coach Bill Pintard (pictured center) thanks the crowd for their support following the last home game on July 31, 2010, before heading to the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kansas. That same year, Pintard was named the California Collegiate League’s Manager of the Year.

Bill Pintard, beginning his 21st season as Foresters manager, has assembled a roster of young players from top college programs around the country. Many of them will be missing from this weekend’s games against the Oceanside Waves (Saturday, May 31, at 4:30 p.m., and Sunday, June 1, at 1 p.m.) because they are playing in the NCAA regionals. UCSB had been hoping to snag a postseason berth for the second straight year, since it had a better overall record (34-17-1) than in 2013, but the Gauchos were doomed by going 4-8 against the four Big West Conference teams that did make the tournament: Cal Poly (which is hosting a regional), Long Beach State, UC Irvine, and Cal State Fullerton. Pintard said UCSB seniors Joey Epperson, who hit a cool .376 during the season, and Cameron Cuneo, who made 10 pitching appearances, may suit up for the Foresters this weekend. Incoming players include third baseman Vance Vizcaino, whose father, Junior, played in the major leagues; Dillon Dobson, a slugger from Appalachian State; and Bret Boswell, a redshirt shortstop from Texas. Many more will arrive in the next week or two. Pintard said he is trying to line up host families to put up the players until the end of July. He can be reached at 886-7041. The Foresters are known for their winning ways — 21 consecutive appearances in the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kansas, including four championships — and their charity work for young cancer patients.

TOUGH YEAR: UCSB basketball teams have been saddened by the loss of two of their most devoted fans: Judy Contreras died in February after following the Gaucho men for decades, and Renée Trenholm, a longtime friend and benefactor of the women’s program, passed away recently. She will be fondly remembered at the UCSB women’s golfing fundraiser at the La Cumbre Country Club on Monday, June 2. Former Gaucho standout Kayte Christensen, the sideline reporter for the Sacramento Kings, will speak at the banquet. Call 893-5732 for information.

Eye-Opening Wine-and-Dine Trip to Southern San Luis Obispo County Text and photos by Matt Kettmann

Claiborne & Churchill’s Colby ParkerGarcia (left) and Clay Thompson

Into Edna Valley


Sinor-La Vallee’s Mike Sinor

Intro to S.L.O.


here couldn’t have been a more symbolic start to my recent expedition into the occasionally overlooked wine country of southern San Luis Obispo County: perched above the vines of Bassi Ranch alongside Highway , staring straight into the seas off Pismo Beach just a mile away, and sipping remarkably distinct wines from stemware balancing on the hood of a beat-up Land Cruiser owned by S.L.O. veteran Mike Sinor, who’s been working in the region since he was a Cal Poly student in the early 1990s. As a boot-strapping, head-down, hard-working kind of guy, Sinor epitomizes the wine scene that’s rooted in the cities of S.L.O. and Pismo and the Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande Valley wine-growing appellations that surround them. He’s overseen projects both massive and tiny, specifically the 600-case Sinor-La Vallee ( label he founded with his wife in 1997; he’s got one foot in the vineyard and the other in the winery, which he commutes to on bicycle; he’s exceedingly modest despite having, among other accolades, helped start the World of Pinot Noir event; and his wines are some of the best I’ve tasted — ever and anywhere. And yet, despite living only an hour down the coast, most Santa Barbarans have never heard of him, as the producers of southern S.L.O. County tend to get drowned out by the better-funded volume of what’s happening up the road in Paso Robles. The folks at SLO Wine Country ( want to change that and, as Sinor and I sip vibrantly fresh, raspberry-inflected pinot noir and cool-climate syrah that tastes of olive tapenade, it’s easy to see what many are missing when they drive by. Aside from the wines and scenery and, as I’ll find, great eats, passersby are missing the chance to engage with real, down-to-earth vintners like Sinor, who wears frugality and resourcefulness on his sleeve.“I love swap meets,” he tells me with his wide smile as the sun sets on us.“That’s just my style.”

Stephen Ross Wine Cellars’s Steve Dooley

Inside City Limits


y home base was the SeaCrest Hotel (seacrest, which overlooks the Pismo Pier with oceanfront balconies that are equipped with hot tubs, perfect for a late-night soak with wine or an early-morning dip with coffee. But before I could do either, I drove into downtown San Luis Obispo, where I dined at the recently remodeled Granada Hotel & Bistro ( First built in 1922 next door to the town’s vaudeville theater, it masqueraded as a spot for traveling actors and artists but, as the story goes, was truly a room-by-the-hour brothel. Today, the rooms are small yet still stylishly sexy, and the bistro is the hottest reservation in town. I jumped from bacon-lardon-laced brussels sprouts to red kuri squash soup with smoked paprika oil to Mary’s brick chicken, a perfect piece of poultry. The next morning, after my coffee soak at the SeaCrest, I headed back to S.L.O. to meet with Steve Dooley, whose Stephen Ross Wine Cellars ( is one of only three wineries inside city limits. As a high schooler in Minnesota, Dooley recalls asking,“Gee, mom, how’s wine made?” and was soon turning rhubarb and apple juice into hooch. “It was terrible,” critiqued Dooley. He graduated from UC Davis in 1977, then worked for Louis Martini in Napa until 1987. Before moving to the Central Coast, Dooley thought, as many did back then, “They couldn’t possibly be making good wine down there!” He learned otherwise as winemaker at Edna Valley Winery, where he worked for seven years, helping to grow them from a 35,000- to a 65,000-case operation. In 1994, he started Stephen Ross (that’s his middle name) but kept working the corporate gigs, too, including winemaking for the 200,000-case behemoth Chalone and consulting on the creation of Tolosa Winery. Today, he’s all focused on Stephen Ross, making about 5,000 cases a year of mostly pinot and chardonnay, both of which are considered to be among the top annual bottlings in the entire state, especially those from the Stone Corral Vineyard he planted in conjunction with Talley Vineyards. And what first drew him to the business keeps Dooley going today, as he explained, “I like the process, I like the chemistry, and I like the fact that it’s agriculture.”

efore heading into the Edna Valley, I stopped for lunch at the Meze Wine Bar & Bistro (meze, housed inside the refurbished and red-bricked-out Railroad Square development. Owners Lisa and John Schiltz, who is a certified sommelier, purchased the property nearly a year ago and serve a variety of smaller plates for lunch, from housemade ricotta to seasonal salads to the tartine du jour. It’s a popular place to pick up picnics for the wine country, and by night it transforms into a tasting hub.“This is starting to become an area of town that people are really coming to,” said Lisa. My next stop was Chamisal Vineyards (chamisalvine, where New Zealand–born winemaker Fintan du Fresne tank-tasted me on their popular stainless-steel chardonnay (35,000 of the winery’s roughly 70,000 annual cases) and toured me through the historic vineyards, first planted in 1973. He’s worked there since 2006, bridging the previous ownership (which called the place Domaine Alfred) and the current owner, Crimson Wine Group, which took over in 2008, boosting both quantity (from 8,000 cases to 70,000) and quality (especially in its upperend “Califa” series). Chardonnay and pinot noir are again king here, but Chamisal also makes some very intriguing syrah and grenache. “This is one of the only truly coastal wine-growing regions in the country,” said du Fresne.“All of Edna Valley is within five miles of the ocean and all at sea level.” The auxiliary benefit of that? “I work at one of the only wineries in California where I can go for a surf on my lunch break,” admitted the Kiwi. On the way out of town, I drove through the rolling hills toward Edna, where Clay and Fredericka Thompson’s Claiborne & Churchill Vintners ( have been perfecting Alsatian varietals since 1983. A former professor of Old Norse languages in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Clay quit academia in 1981 and moved to the Edna Valley to become a winemaker.“It was a bit of a shock to the system,” he recalled.“It’s hard work, but I’ve loved it ever since. Here, you’re rewarded for good work, unlike academia.” The Thompsons make about 20 wines a year, including some great pinot and hardy red blends, but riesling and gewürztraminer remain the focus of their winery, which has been run by Colby Parker-Garcia since 2004.“I know you’re not supposed to make wine that you like; you’re supposed to make wine that the market likes,” explained Clay, known in some circles as the Godfather of Gewürztraminer.“We disobeyed that rule.” As such, they offer an excellent counterpoint to the steady stream of pinot and chardonnay flowing from Edna Valley. Their charming tasting room in the middle of their production facility is modeled after one of the valley’s old Portuguese dairy barns and happens to be California’s first straw-bale construction for a commercial facility. But the dirt and climate and people are what powers Claiborne & Churchill, just like every other spot in southern S.L.O. County.“It’s a magical place,” said Clay.“It really is.” ■ may 29, 2014

Getting to Know




lectronic music comes in all shapes and sizes, but few would argue that France’s scene has had a major impact on the masses. Thanks to groups like Air and Daft Punk, and protégés like Justice and M, the country has carved out a sound that is as fluid as it is distinctive, and nowadays the ripple effect can be heard around the world. Just take Lemaitre. Since coming together in 2010, Norway’s Ketil Jansen and Ulrik Denizou Lund have made electronic pop that’s atmospheric, anthemic, and undeniably infectious. They make nods to disco, ’80s R&B, and the space-age synths of pioneers like Kraftwerk, and the result is pure, unadulterated dancefloor fodder. This Thursday, May 29, Lemaitre makes its way to SOhO Restaurant & Music Club as part of a short run of West Coast tour dates. (The pair returns to the States in August alongside Porter Robinson.) For tickets and info, visit Below, we chat with Lund via email about the story behind Lemaitre.

Compelling pop music has long been a staple of Scandinavian culture. How heavily was creation and artistic exploration emphasized for you as a kid? Not much in school, really. But we grew up listening to a lot of different music; a lot of jazz and fusion from my dad’s record collection; a lot of French music, especially Serge Gainsbourg from my French mother and electronic music like Daft Punk, Phoenix, and Basement Jaxx through my brother. But I come from a family of architects, so wanting to do something creative has always been obvious to me. Though I didn’t know from the start whether that would be architecture, design, music, film, or writing. When did you and Ketil first start working together? Right after we finished high school, we decided to give it a try. We both had been doing music separately for a long time, but found out we had a common interest in

alternative electronic music and a lot of the same ideas of what we wanted to make. We didn’t know what we wanted to do other than make music, so we figured we’d do whatever we could for one year to try to make it. But we discovered pretty quickly this was something we could keep doing for a while, and here we are now trying to keep it going for many more years to come.


What were some of the touchstones, artists, and kindred musical spirits that you initially bonded over? Daft Punk and Justice were definitely our main influences for wanting to do electronic music. We’re also fans of hip-hop and old funk, soul, and R&B. And cinematic music, and more contemporary classic music — especially the type of scores you can hear in Miyazaki’s movies.  From an outsider’s perspective, the hype around the group seems to be growing. Have you felt things start to shift or change in recent months? It’s really hard to see it from an insider’s perspective. It feels like the past four years have flown by. And we really haven’t had time to step back and take a look at it. There is always a new and more important deadline or goal up ahead. But yes, we do feel big things are starting to happen more frequently, and the further we come, the more motivated we get. What’s been the most career-affirming moment thus far? When we played Northern Europe’s biggest music festival last year, we were maybe hoping to play for 3,000-5,000 people but ended up playing for 15,000. That felt pretty surreal. In your opinion, is there still a firm line dividing the realms of dance and pop music? No, not at all. If it’s done right, everything works — if you stay away from the worst clichés and don’t “exploit” dance music —Aly Comingore gimmicks.

There’s something unequivocally haunting about the way Sharon Van Etten sings. From a technical standpoint, her range is low but malleable, and she’s capable of belting lyrics with a guttural strength that one could imagine would fell a room. But Van Etten’s voice also has a tremble, a punctuating, questioning swoop that humanizes her music in the most subtle of ways. On Are We There, Van Etten’s fourth and latest offering for Jagjaguwar, the songs lean more heavily on the rhythm section than past albums, but it’s the stories Van Etten weaves that ultimately steal the show. “Help me deserve you, seeing me praise / You love me but you’ll change,” she sings on “I Love You But I’m Lost.” Later, “Break Me” piles Van Etten’s wavering voice on top of itself. “He can break me,” she bellows before hiccupping the remainder of the chorus, “With one hand to my … head.” The whole thing ends on a stunningly hopeful note with the loping “Every Time the Sun Comes Up,” but the takeaway from Are We There isn’t wallowing or optimistic; it’s a lingering slice of life offering, and it’s filled with the kind of brutally raw emotion that few artists can pull off as successfully as Van Etten. — AC



Fittingly, so-called “glam rapper” Mickey Avalon made his first media appearance on MTV Cribs alongside fellow can’ttell-if-they’re-serious-ornot white rapper Simon Rex (a k a Dirt Nasty). It was Rex who would help launch Avalon’s musical career after the two first began writing verses for laughs while Avalon crashed on Rex’s couch. The licentious whimsy with which Avalon delivers verses about his Sunset Strip exploits is the key to his ethos. Avalon (born Yeshe Perl) is a slightly built, long-haired grandson of Auschwitz survivors, who lost his father to a drunk-driving accident in the weeks following his release from a drug rehab program (his admittance into which was made possible after months of careful supervision from Avalon himself). Subsequent personal battles with heroine and prostitution thusly provided Perl with a surplus of lyrical content, which he channeled into his tattooed and often-nude Mickey Avalon character. A personification of the mid-aughts cocaine-chic scene ruled by early Internet celebrities like Paris Hilton and the guy from Entourage, Avalon fashioned himself as part party kid, part Hollywood outsider musician. In 2014, Avalon’s audience remains diverse. Efforts to save himself, either by starting a family in Oregon or by becoming an Orthodox Jew, both proved fruitless, though one has to wonder how the (relative) stability of a touring and performance circuit has affected the troubled emcee. He still invites dancers onstage and still sports a Marilyn Manson-esque admiral hat while spitting verses from the stages of the same small clubs he was performing in five years ago. This Friday, May 30, Avalon returns to Velvet Jones ( State St.) with S.B. band The Fire Department and SoCal rockers Good Deeds. The 21+ show starts at 8 p.m. Call 965-8676 or visit for tickets and info. — Jake Blair

“One of the most exciting things on stage this year!” “The play is spellbinding.”

t’s been a big year for women and drawing at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. First, there were two excellent shows examining the drawings of Alice Aycock and Michelle Stuart, and now there’s this relatively small but nevertheless illuminating exhibit of drawings by the Ojai ceramicist Beatrice Wood. Best known for her lusterware pottery, Wood has also long enjoyed a substantial reputation not only as a craftsperson but also as a rabble-rousing Dada-style troublemaker. Born into wealth and privilege, the rebellious Wood spent a good portion of her long life warding off creditors and eking out an existence from one art sale to the next. After experiencing the heady liftoff of surrealism in New York as a friend and confidante of Marcel Duchamp, Wood went West, first to Los Angeles, where she cultivated a wide circle of artistic and celebrity acquaintances, and then to Ojai, where she studied Eastern philosophy under Krishnamurti and eventually settled in for several decades of unusual productivity at the pottery wheel. In Living in the Timeless, an exhibition made possible by the loan of a collection amassed by longtime Wood supporter and fearless scholar of early Dada Francis Naumann, both aspects of Wood — her quirky, faux-naïve aesthetic and her playful, flirtatious sense of humor — are on full display. In addition to a selection of drawings, many of them employing colored pencils or watercolors in addition to graphite, there are also several examples of her whimsical work as a sculptor in clay. These small, childlike figures exist in sharp contrast to the elegance and fine finish of her more traditional chalices and bowls. In one particularly striking set of figures, Wood portrays herself and second husband Steve Hoag on the occasion of their Las Vegas wedding as a hilariously un-together pair of newlyweds. While these figurines seem to mock the tradition of miniatures as cake decorations, another figure in the same vitrine depicting a topless and very sexy Helen Freeman, a friend and frequent travel companion of Wood, shows that perhaps her true passion lay elsewhere. Never one to shy away from an innuendo, Wood composed a book in the same period that she titled Touching Certain Things. Drawings from the book include a salacious portrait of Wood in bed with and ogling a sleeping Freeman. This scandalous early-20th-century image of same-sex desire is called simply “… how lucky men are.” When sketching, Wood relies heavily on gestures, the most apparent being the use of negative space in portraits — using one line to define both the nose and the space where the eye should be, for example, and the dislocation of limbs from their proper connections. The latter move reaches its logical endpoint in “Dance Craze,” a drawing from 1982 that shows disembodied legs entwined in various poses designed to exploit the suggestive potential of isolated limbs. At their most successful, Wood’s drawings pair the simple ironies of the cartoon form with the disruptive tendencies of her contemporaries in the fields of Dada and surrealism. “Holiday,” from 1933, is a composition in watercolor and pencil showing a rather manic-looking Wood at the wheel of a car with her husband in the passenger seat. The bizarre placement of an electric power line across the middle of the car’s windshield lends a certain frisson of shock — one of Wood’s favorite terms — to an otherwise familiar situation. The ultimate sensation to be derived from this exhibition is similar to the one suggested by this piece — a ■ fast and wild ride with a spark plug doing the driving.

he performance I saw of this outstanding production took place under almost unimaginably difficult circumstances. On Saturday evening, May 24, as the actors in Equivocation were backstage preparing for their 8 p.m. curtain, thousands of students were gathered just a few hundred yards away in Storke Plaza for a vigil to mourn the victims of Friday night’s massacre. After picking up my ticket and making sure that all the theater students were okay, I headed to the plaza, where I observed the vigil and then took part in the first quarter mile of the silent march through campus to Isla Vista. Thousands of people holding candles, holding hands, and holding each other streamed in total silence past the Performing Arts Theater across from Hatlen Theater. Although whispers could be heard occasionally among the spectators, within the ranks, the quiet was eerily absolute. Upon entering the theater, the audience was greeted by director Irwin Appel, who addressed the highly dramatic circumstances of the performance first by admitting that the cast had debated whether or not to perform that night, and then by asking for a moment of silence inside the theater. In the moving statement that followed, Appel acknowledged the difficulty of the decision and offered as the final reason for going ahead the fact that “the spirit of the students in the theater program is the force that renews my life, and we need that force now.” The play itself was great — unquestionably one of the best things I have seen at UCSB, or anywhere. Playwright Bill Cain has taken a wealth of material about Shakespeare — or “Shagspeare,” as he is known in Equivocation — and woven it into a mesmerizing tapestry of historical speculation, critical analysis, and, most importantly, riveting drama. The core dilemma belongs to Shag (Patrick Arter), who receives a commission in the form of a command from King James I to write a play about the Gunpowder Plot. This commission is delivered, along with the requisite threats and bullying, by the sinister Sir Robert Cecil (Zackery Alexander), and as a result, Shag’s “cooperative venture,” the King’s Company, is thrown into turmoil. How can they perform a play that deals with current events? It’s never been done. And will this play endanger them? The executions that followed the Gunpowder Plot are part of the action in Equivocation, and Ian Elliott, who also does a great job as King James I, plays the conspirator Tom Wintour, who is executed onstage in a rather neat bit of theatrical illusion. Thankfully, under the circumstances, Equivocation is not all blood and guts. Cain writes the many rehearsal scenes mostly for laughs, allowing the audience to share in his wonder at the sheer ludicrousness of moments like Lear’s wanderings on the heath clad only in a diaper. Above all, Equivocation is a feast for Shakespeareans, a chance to let all the hard hours one has spent learning the history behind the plays pay off in a riot of clever associations and interesting comparisons. Erica Flor plays Judith, Shag’s daughter, as a supremely self-aware figure who has been forced to live too long in the shadow of her dead twin brother, Shag’s son Hamnet. Ultimately, the central message of the show is clear: It is always hard to speak the truth in difficult times, but with the help of our friends and colleagues in this cooperative ■ venture called civilization, it can be done.

PORTRAIT OF A SONGWRITER Pete Yorn Embarks on His First Solo Acoustic Tour


by Aly Comingore


ix solo albums and 13 years in, Pete Yorn, believe it or not, has never taken to the road alone, but this week marks the singer/ songwriter’s first-ever solo acoustic tour. “I felt like I really needed to do it, and I wanted to do it,” he said as he strolled through his Santa Monica neighborhood last week. “I’m excited for it, but I’m also nervous as shit.” Looking back on his catalog, one can’t help but call Yorn prolific. Soft-spoken and self-assured, he writes folk-inspired songs that are easily digested but, upon close listen, tough to swallow, filled with ruminations on love, loss, and the human condition. Since 2001’s musicforthemorningafter, Yorn has offered up countless live EPs, written for myriad television and movie projects, and collaborated with everyone from Scarlett Johansson (for 2009’s Break Up) to GO IT ALONE: “I’m excited for it, but I’m also nervous as Frank Black (on 2010’s Pete Yorn) to shit,” says singer/songwriter Pete Yorn about his upcoming J.D.

A lot of people have this romantic idea of that’s an inspiring thing to do, and other times something what songwriting is like; there’s a typewriter and candles, just comes out of you, and it’s channeled through you. and you’re alone on a beach. For me, it’s never like that; it’s in the shower, in the bathroom, random moments in the Do you have creative outlets outside of music? car. I still don’t write every day, even though people tell me I’m really interested in other people and the way they move I should. But I do keep an acoustic guitar sitting around through adversity.

COME TOGETHER: For many in this county and country, last Saturday proved to be a day of reflection, confusion, and grief. As a UCSB alum and former Isla Vista resident, the incidents that occurred on Friday struck a countless number of nerves, perhaps magnified by my proximity to the mayhem. Like hundreds of others, I spent my Friday night on campus, sitting in a packed Campbell Hall to watch one of my all-time favorite college traditions: the Reel Loud Film Festival. Over the course of those four hours, I recall feeling nostalgic, but also (mostly) proud of the budding filmmakers, musicians, teachers, and organizers who poured their hearts and souls into such an impressive event. It wasn’t until I returned home that I learned of the horror that occurred less than a mile away while it was all going on. Come Saturday, after a long and defeating day after, I found myself back in the car, heading up the  to do what I had planned on — what I had looked forward to doing — all week: going to the Biko Co-op to catch Detroit rockers Tyvek. Following a day’s worth of “should we/shouldn’t we?” debates, the model Isla Vistans behind nonprofit SBDIY decided that the show must go on, if only to provide a safe place for folks seeking comfort and community in the wake of Friday’s tragedy. Unsurprisingly, the mood was somber and attendance was low, but for those who did show face, Saturday’s show proved to be a perfect example of the caring, communal spirit that I.V. can and does foster on a daily basis. Following the evening’s candlelight vigil, students and community members trickled into the Biko, tea lights still burning, and sat down on the garage’s floor just to listen. Attendees hugged, talked, and exchanged knowing glances between sets, and the evening’s road-weary headliners offered up words of compassion, patience, and sympathy for both Friday’s victims and the Isla Vista population at large. Like most gestures of kindness witnessed this weekend, Saturday’s concert offered little insight into the senselessness that took place on the streets of I.V. last Friday. But it did help to remind me that sometimes music can help to mend an emotional tear, be it small and personal or deep and internationally reverberating.

MIND GAMES: Speaking of cultural community offerings of the Isla Vista kind, this week Speak Volumes and Magic Lantern Films present the final installment of their Something Else concert series. On Friday, May 30, in Isla Vista Theater, SoCal electronic artist Mndsgn mans the tables for an audiovisual event worthy of its grand finale placement. The night finds Mndsgn (a k a Ringgo Ancheta) performing an all-original live score set to the 1988 Katsuhiro Otomo film Akira. For the unacquainted, Ancheta’s brand of beat making tends toward the atmospheric, with a heavy emphasis on elastic-sounding, hip-hop-leaning loops. Paired with Otomo’s animated neo-Tokyo landscapes, I’m betting its going to be one heady night at the movies. The show kicks off at 9 p.m. with a set from producer A Sol Mechanic. The film starts at 9:45 p.m. For info, visit

Time Space Discontinuum X-Men: Days of Future Past. Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, and Hugh Jackman star in a film written by Simon Kinberg and directed by Bryan Singer. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino


gain with the time traveling, right? Only this time, the X-Men folks have made the old slipping off the surly bonds of here and now so complicated it’s never rooted in what scientific philosophers might call “the present.” The film begins abruptly in a dead-end future, where an obsessive scientist named Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) has unleashed a herd of super evil, indestructible robots called Sentinels. Way out there and then, the remaining mutants have put aside their longtime differences to devise a last-ditch strategy so crazy it might work. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), they calmly reason, must go back to the 1970s to prevent the robot apocalypse from gaining traction, a plan that includes attending the Paris Peace Accords with Richard Nixon, sneaking into

the seldom-discussed dungeon beneath the Pentagon, and learning why JFK was both so great and so doomed. Coincidentally, it gives the old X-Men cast a chance to hang with the new group, introduced in the livelier last film, X-Men: First Class. It’s a bold attempt at superpower synthesis, but you can’t convince me that this movie, which weirdly resuscitates Bryan Singer’s somehow indestructible career, is superior to Matthew Vaughn’s delight-filled First Class. That doesn’t mean this film is a dud, though. Singer isn’t a good director, and this movie rumbles when it ought to float. Meanwhile, Vaughn’s take mixed trashy comic-book tropes with beautifully conflicting passions. Singer’s movie has showstoppers, including a scene that places future X-Man Quicksilver (Evan Peters) in a three-dimensional bullet-shot sequence that was probably as hard to engineer as real-life time travel. There are a few other brilliant moments, as well. To his discredit, Singer relies too heavily on whiny James MacAvoy and underuses Jennifer Lawrence, which ought to be considered criminal. Yet the whole big thing has heft. After you finish marching back and forth through the eons, Future Past leaves you, like all cool old Marvel Comics did, wishing for a time machine to find out what wonders the future might hold. '■

✯ Chef (115 mins.; R: language, some suggestive references)

Edge of Tomorrow (113 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, brief language, suggestive material)

All you really need to know about this movie is that it features three great stars of American culture: Cuban sandwiches in Miami, beignets from Café Du Monde in New Orleans, and slow-smoked brisket from Austin, Texas. There well may be better and more nourishing foods than these, but this reporter most seriously doubts that to be the case. The film, in other words, wears its soulful foodiness on its greasy apron. Jon Favreau fills that apron as star, director, and writer of this light-hearted, high-calorie tale concerning a chef named Carl who has had his fill of working for a craven restaurant owner (played with gleeful spite by Dustin Hoffman). After a food fight with a pompous critic that goes viral — the film might be considered a commercial for Twitter — Favreau is forced to reevaluate his food, love, and family priorities. It takes place mostly on the road and has the feel of a 1960s exploitation film that just happens to star John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, and Robert Downey Jr. in bit parts. There are a number of weird unexplained bits — like how a chef’s wife can live in Beverly Hills with hired help — but other than that, it’s perfectly delicious, a sometimes coarse and often fine comedy that will leave you hungry at the end.

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. (JW) Sat., May 31, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

✯ The Jewish Cardinal

(96 mins.; NR)

This made-for-TV biography tells the story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism and joining the priesthood. Sun., June 1, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

✯ Veronica Mars (107 mins.; PG-13: sexuality, drug content, violence, some strong language)

Years after leaving her life as a teenage private eye, Veronica Mars is pulled back to her hometown to help her ex-boyfriend, who’s caught in the middle of a murder case. Fri., May 30, 7pm, Isla Vista Theater, 960 Embarcadero del Norte

NOW SHOWING ✯ The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (142 mins.; PG-13: sequences of sci-fi action and violence)

Peter Parker goes head-to-head with a new collection of villains who are sent by the evil Oscorp Industries to destroy him. Andrew Garfield stars. There’s a lot of movie here: Most of it is dazzling; some of it is touching. (DJP) Fiesta 5 (2-D)

✯ Belle

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

The illegitimate, mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral is taken in by her aristocratic great-uncle. 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

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

Following a bad blind date, a single mom and a single dad find themselves stranded

together at a resort for families. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler star. Fairview/Metro 4

✯ Godzilla (123 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of destruction, mayhem, creature violence) The famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who threaten to wipe out humanity. Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen star. 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. (DJP) Camino Real (2- D)/Metro 4 (2-D)

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

Wes Anderson’s latest chronicles the adventures of Gustave H., a concierge at a famous European hotel, and the lobby boy he forges a lifelong friendship with. Grand Budapest is beautiful in all the right ways, but the whimsical plot is all quirks and turns of comic phrase. You will laugh and maybe cry, but it’s no Rushmore or Moonrise Kingdom. (DJP) Plaza de Oro

Sustainable Heart

Million Dollar Arm (124 mins.; PG: mild language, some suggestive content)

Jon Hamm stars as an unconventional sports agent who tries to recruit Indian cricket players to baseball’s major leagues. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

Neighbors (96 mins.; R: pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use throughout)

Two new parents struggle when they are forced to live next door to a frat house. Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron star. It may take too long to get funny, and feels like pieces are missing, but the slapstick moments work just fine. Better still, in a film about two dudes, it’s really all about Byrne here. (DJP) Fairview/Metro 4

The Other Woman (109 mins.; PG-13: some sexual references)

A man’s wife teams up with his two mistresses to enact revenge. Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton star. The Other Woman bogs itself down in aimless set pieces; it gives us jokes about getting drunk, or pooping, or dogs pooping, or nattering verbal fights that only make its female victims seem dumb. (DJP) Fiesta 5


Therapeutic Coaching

Only certified therapist in the Tri-County area for the Real Relational Solutions Program Are You In Pain About Your Marriage?

Palo Alto (100 mins.; R: strong sexual content, drug and alcohol use, pervasive language — all involving teens)

A shy high schooler (Emma Roberts) is torn between her slacker boy crush and an illicit affair with her soccer coach. Stylistically, Palo Alto benefits from a solid soundtrack (Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes sets the perfect psuedo-sultry mood) but suffers from a weird half-appropriation of a multitude of indie-film tropes.

From Marriage Tune-up to Last Chance Intensive Therapy

Learn the New Rules of Marriage: Marriage in the 21st Century June 7, 9-12pm may 29, 2014






(May 21-June 20): I suspect that some night soon you will have a dream of being naked as you stand on stage in front of a big audience. Or maybe not completely naked. There’s a strong possibility you will be wearing pink and green striped socks and a gold crown. And it gets worse. In your dream, I bet you will forget what you were going to say to the expectant crowd. Your mouth will be moving, but no words will come out. So that’s the bad news, Gemini. The good news is that since I have forewarned you, you can now do whatever is necessary to prevent anything resembling this dream from actually occurring in your waking life. So when you are called on to show what you’ve got and make a splashy impression, you will be well-prepared.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): About 32,000 years ago, squirrels in northeast Siberia buried the fruits of a flowering plant deep in their burrows, below the level of the permafrost. Then a flood swept through the area. The water froze and permanently sealed the fruits in a layer of ice. They remained preserved there until 2007, when they were excavated. A team of scientists got a hold of them and coaxed them to grow into viable plants. Their success has a metaphorical resemblance to a project you will be capable of pulling off during the next 12 months, Virgo. I’m not sure what exact form it will take. A resuscitation? A resurrection? A recovery? The revival of a dormant dream? The thawing of a frozen asset or the return of a lost resource?

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Longing, what is that? Desire, what is that?” Those are questions Louise Glück asks in her poem “Prism.” Does she really not know? Has she somehow become innocent again, free from all her memories of what longing and desire have meant to her in the past? That’s what I wish for you right now, Sagittarius. Can you do it? Can you enter into beginner’s mind and feel your longing and desire as if they were brand-new, just born, as fresh and primal as they were at the moment you fell in love for the first time? If you can manage it, you will bestow upon yourself a big blessing.



(June 21-July 22): When I slip into a meditative state and seek insight about your future, I have a reverie about a hearty sapling growing out of a fallen tree that’s rotting on the forest floor. I see exuberant mushrooms sprouting from a cow pie in a pasture. I imagine compost nourishing a watermelon patch. So what do my visions mean? I’m guessing you’re going through a phase of metaphorical death and decay. You are shedding and purging and flushing. In the process, you are preparing some topnotch fertilizer. It won’t be ready for a while, but when it is, a growth spurt will begin.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): For German physicist Arnold Sommerfeld, the good news was that he was nominated for the Nobel Prize 81 times. The bad news is that he never actually won. Actor Richard Burton had a similar fate. He was nominated for an Academy Award seven times but never took home an Oscar. If there is anything that even vaguely resembles that pattern in your own life, Libra, the next 12 months will be the most favorable time ever to break the spell. In the next few weeks, you may get a glimpse of how it will unfold.


(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “I should have kissed you longer.” I hope you won’t be replaying that thought over and over again in your imagination three weeks from now. I hope you won’t be obsessing on similar mantras, either, like “I should have treated you better” or “I wish I would have listened to you deeper” or “I should have tried harder to be my best self with you.” Please don’t let any of that happen, Scorpio. I am begging you to act now to make any necessary changes in yourself so that you will be fully ready to give the important people in your life the care they deserve. If you do so, you will be free of regrets later.

(July 23-Aug. 22): “Dear Diary: Almost everything that was possible to change has changed these past 12 months. I am not kidding, and I am not exaggerating. Getting just one of my certainties destroyed would have been acceptable; I long ago became accustomed to the gradual chip-chip-chipping away of my secure foundations. But this most recent phase, when even my pretty illusions of stability got smashed, truly set a record. So then why am I still standing strong and proud? Why is it I’m not cowering in the corner muttering to the spiders? Have I somehow found some new source of power that was never available to me until my defenses were totally stripped away? I think I’ll go with that theory.”


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You could really benefit from engaging with a compassionate critic — someone who would gently and lovingly invite you to curb your excesses, heal your ignorance, and correct your mistakes. Would you consider going out in search of a kick-ass guide like that? Ideally, this person would also motivate you to build up your strengths and inspire you to take better care of your body. One way or another, Capricorn, curative feedback will be coming your way. The question is, will you have a hand in choosing it, or will you wait around passively for fate to deliver it? I highly recommend the former.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Now would be an excellent time for you to dream up five new ways to have fun. I’m not suggesting there’s anything wrong with your existing methods. It’s just that in the next few weeks, life will conspire to help you drop some of your inhibitions and play around more than usual and experience greater pleasure. The best way to cooperate with that conspiracy is to be an explorer on the frontiers of amusement and enchantment. What’s the most exciting thing you have always wondered about but never done? What interesting experiment have you denied yourself for no good reason? What excursion or adventure would light up your spontaneity?

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Now is an excellent time to transform your relationship with your past. Are you up for a concentrated burst of psychospiritual work? To get the party started, meditate your ass off as you ponder this question: “What fossilized fixations, ancient insults, impossible dreams, and parasitic ghosts am I ready to let go of?” Next, move on to this inquiry: “What can I do to ensure that relaxed, amused acceptance will rule my encounters with the old ways forever after?” Here’s a third query: “What will I do with all the energy I free up by releasing the deadweight I had been clinging to?”

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “When I was young,” wrote French author Albert Camus,“I expected people to give me more than they could — continuous friendship, permanent emotion.” That didn’t work out so well for him. Over and over, he was awash in disappointment. “Now I have learned to expect less of them than they can give,” he concluded. “Their emotions, their friendship, and noble gestures keep their full miraculous value in my eyes; wholly the fruit of grace.” I’d love to see you make an adjustment like this in the coming months, Aries. If you do, the astrological omens suggest you will experience a blessing like Camus’s.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Some earthquakes happen in slow motion. These rare events occur 22-34 miles down, where tectonic plates are hotter and gooier. Unlike the sudden, shocking jolts of typical temblors, this gradual variety can take many days to uncoil and never send dishes flying off shelves up here on the Earth’s surface. I suspect your destiny will have a resemblance to this phenomenon in the coming months, Taurus. Your foundations will be rustling and rumbling, but they will do so slowly and gently. The release of energy will ultimately be quite massive. The realignment of deep structures will be epic. But there will be no big disturbances or damages. Homework: I dare you to give a compliment to someone you’ve never praised before. Tell me about it at .

Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. Big Cone Black American Ale: An ode to the big cone Douglas firs that grow atop the San Rafael Mountains of the Santa Barbara backcountry, this black ale throws off pungent pine aromas from heavy‑duty hops. Their skunkiness also lends an herbal backbone to the powerful flavors of this roasted malt‑based ale, which tastes much like a dark chocolate‑spiked iced espresso. This is just one of many flavors emerging all the time from “Fig Mountain,” as the brewery — with tap rooms now in Los Olivos, Buellton, and the Funk Zone — is increasingly known along the Central Coast.

years ago, owner Clay Holdren boldly launched two restaurants simultaneously in Camino Real Marketplace: Pastavino and Holdren’s. In August 2010, the Goleta Holdren’s was renamed Holdren’s Grill. In August 2013, the Holdren family closed Pastavino and, a month later, replaced it with Smoke ’N Barrel BBQ Shack. In April 2014, Smoke ’N Barrel closed, and this week the Holdren family has announced that Holdren’s Grill in Goleta will close on June 1. I am told that the other two Holdren’s, in Santa Barbara and Newbury Park, will continue to operate. Thanks to reader Julie for the tip.
