Since joining The Santa Barbara Independent team in 2012, Joseph Miller has contributed countless arts features and reviews of performances here. But this week, we pulled Miller out of the theater and into the classroom to profile 17-year-old astronomer (and Dos Pueblos senior) Daniel Godinez (see page 25). “Daniel has been such an inspiration to me. His work ethic puts me to shame,” says Miller. “I’ve seen him sit for six hours and power through homework and college application essays and never look up, not even for a snack. He can work like a dog and yet remain utterly affable. Watching his transformation has made me really wonder: What possibilities are sleeping in other students? What new methods might educators try to awaken them?”

An unidentified college-age man found on 5/30 on the beach below the 6700 block of Del Playa Drive is expected to survive his fall, which caused moderate injuries. He was reportedly below a section of Del Playa Drive fenced with a low wooden railing. The incident comes less than a month after the body of Sierra MarkeeWinkler, 20, was discovered on 5/4 below the 6800 block of DP similarly lined with a low fence. Officials, however, have not released her cause of death. Seven confirmed fatal falls from the Isla Vista cliffs have occurred since 2001. PAU L WELLM AN

Major Money Can’t Save Aceves; Ballot Measure Defeated by Small Margin
BY LY Z H O F F M A N
n unprecedented amount of money raised by her challenger wasn’t enough to beat her grassroots campaign, nd District Supervisor Janet Wolf said Tuesday night, after she defeated Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves with 56 percent of the vote.“He raised a ton of money, and we beat him on the ground,” she said, in between hugging the 100-plus supporters who joined her at the Boathouse restaurant at Hendry’s Beach. Chants of “four more years” started later in the evening at Wolf’s celebration, which was lively from the ﬁrst release of numbers. “I’m very happy. I’m pleased for the community,” said Wolf, who’s looking forward to budget discussions next week. “I’m proud of the people who worked on my campaign. I think they knew what was at stake.”Wolf, securing her third term on the dais, won by a higher percent than in her 2010 primary, when more people cast ballots. As of Monday, Aceves, who announced his campaign in September, had raised approximately $470,000, trumping Wolf’s $305,000, as well as the war chests assembled in all of the other county races and all of the th District congressional races minus incumbent Lois Capps’s. Aceves saw huge ﬁnancial support from Santa Maria Energy, the Chumash, ERG Operating Company, and real estate and development interests. Wolf’s largest donations — $90,000 — came from the Service Employees International Union. Aceves, who enjoyed a 100-person crowd at Harry’s Plaza Café, said after all the votes were counted that he was “surprised at the end result” but that it wasn’t unexpected given the primary’s 10
june 5, 2014
low turnout. “I’m very pleased with the campaign we ran,” he said. “We ran on the issues. And the issues are as relevant now as they were yesterday.”Aceves pointed to Goleta Beach Park in particular, which long looked as if it — and the decision to keep the park’s rock revetments in place or not — would deﬁne the race; Aceves and Wolf both took the same stance, to keep the rocks. Aceves said that he and the rest of the Goleta City Council will work with the county as it moves forward with the Coastal Commission. He added that he will decide later about whether he will seek another term on the council in November. Although no party was held for either side of the issue, Measure M was rejected by voters, albeit narrowly. With nearly 55,000 ballots cast, more than 51 percent of voters said “no” to the maintenance ordinance, which would have required the supervisors to annually allocate anywhere from $18 million to $44 million to pay for the upkeep of county-owned roads, parks, and buildings. The measure was spearheaded by Supervisor Peter Adam but assailed by many others, including all of his fellow supervisors, Sheriﬀ Bill Brown, and District Attorney Joyce Dudley — who all said the measure would spell doom and gloom for public-safety and socialservices budgets. “When it’s this close, everybody played a critical role,” said th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, who fought the measure but wants the board to come up with a “phased-in” solution to the maintenance costs. Sheriﬀ Bill Brown will remain the county’s top cop, as he defeated challenger Sergeant Sandra Brown with 57 percent of the vote. The planned North County Jail and overall department morale became the biggest issues in that
race, but the sergeant (no relation to the sheriﬀ ) failed to garner much momentum. Bill Brown’s party was triumphant early at the Butler Event Center.“I feel good. I’m really proud of the campaign that we ran,” he said just before 8 p.m., noting the “wonderful” department that he will continue to lead. All those running unopposed in the county easily claimed victory, including Dudley and Lavagnino. State Assemblymember Das Williams beat challenger Ron DeBlauw to keep his seat. Congressmember Lois Capps handily won one of two spots on the November ballot and will face oﬀ against Republican Chris Mitchum, whom she pinpointed as her opponent in her ads. Mitchum scored 16 percent of the vote, with 15,927 ballots cast in his favor. He narrowly beat out Republican Justin Fareed, who earned 15,013 votes. Santa Barbara City Councilmember Dale Francisco came in fourth. Governor Jerry Brown cruised to the November ballot, where he will vie for a record fourth term against Republican Neel Kashkari. Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom will face Republican Ron Nehring; Democrat Alex Padilla and Republican Pete Peterson will square oﬀ for secretary of state; in the race for treasurer, Democrat John Chiang heads to battle with Republican Greg Conlon; Attorney General Kamala Harris will ﬁght Republican Ronald Gold in that race; and the controller’s match is locked between top vote-getter Republican Ashley Swearengin and Democrat John Pérez. Overall, Santa Barbara County saw a 29 percent voter turnout — and the state 18 percent — with approximately 57,000 of the 193,900 registered voters casting ballots. ■
Santa Barbara cyberspace lit up last Thursday afternoon when police scanner traffic reported what turned out to be a hoax call about the killing of a family in Hope Ranch Annex (pictured). “It’s an incredibly cruel trick to play, especially in light of what our community has been through,” said Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover, referring to the previous week’s killings in Isla Vista. The call, which came from a 661 area code, caused Vieja Valley school and the Learning Center preschool to be placed on lockdown. Twenty-five units arrived at the location to find the family unaware of what was going on; deputies searched the yard and home and found nothing. The owner and operator of Spitfire Aviation flight school at the Santa Barbara Airport was sentenced last month to three years of probation for helping orchestrate an insurance-fraud scheme involving one of the school’s planes. Andrea Read pleaded no contest to “accessory after the fact,” which prosecutors say is “a crime of moral turpitude” that could affect her business and pilot’s licenses. Find the full article at independent.com. On 5/29, the Santa Barbara Citizens Council on Crime awarded 18 law enforcement officers with recognition for their work in 2013 at the 45th Annual Thomas Guerry Awards Ceremony. Among the recipients were Officer Lucas Signorelli, for working with Lompoc High School as a School Resources Officer; Lt. Daniel Cohen of Santa Maria, for the development of a documentary uncovering the details and hardships of gang lifestyle; and Det. Dawn Arviso of the UCSB Police Department, for her work to improve officer-survivor relations in sexual assault instances. For a complete list of awardees, visit independent.com.

Facing imminent legal threat from noted trial attorney Barry Cappello, the Santa Barbara City Council came within inches of putting district elections on the ballot this November for city voters to decide, but it came up just one vote shy and deadlocked 3-3. Had Councilmember Dale Francisco been present — he was campaigning for Congress — he said he would have voted to let city residents decide the matter, while at the same time dismissing district elections as “silly” and “a bad idea.” Although none of the current councilmembers supports district elections, it’s almost inevitable that the matter will either go before the voters, before a judge, and very likely both. Based on a host of recent court decisions throughout California, the conviction around City Hall is that if Cappello sues on behalf of the emerging coalition of district election supporters, he will almost certainly win. Since 1968, only five Latinos, one African American, and one Asian-Pacific Islander have been elected to the council. To prevail, Cappello must demonstrate Santa Barbara voters are polarized along racial lines, meaning that minority voters in general vote differently than their Anglo counterparts. City Attorney Ariel Calonne said with Latinos making up 38 percent of the city’s population, there was a very strong likelihood such polarization exists. That, he added, would have to be demonstrated by an expert demographer. The council voted to hire such a demographer right away to determine the facts. It also voted to form an ad hoc subcommittee to meet with proponents of district elections to see if any meetings of the mind could be achieved without resorting to legal bloodshed. District-election advocate Frank Bañales, who ran for the council in the 1980s and lost narrowly, said his group — the District Election Committee of the Community Neighborhood Alliance — intends to sue City Hall for violating the California Voting Rights Act in the next few weeks. Bañales said district elections have little to do with ethnicity and everything to do with neighborhood representation.

Disgruntled taxi drivers (pictured) gathered outside City Hall on 5/30 to argue that companies like Uber and Lyft get an unfair advantage because their drivers don’t have to go through the rigors of a taxicab business license, hold commercial insurance, obey safety codes, or have law enforcement background checks as do the drivers for the 68 taxi companies here. They claim their revenue has dropped by 60 percent since the online taxicalling services came to town. Uber spokesperson Eva Behrend maintained all drivers operate under a permit granted by the Public Utilities Commission and have background checks, a zero-tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol, and $1 million per incident insurance coverage. Approximately 500 cab drivers work the streets in Santa Barbara.
The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County’s longtime leader Michael Feeney was forced to resign in February amid undisclosed circumstances. Feeney has been a major presence in environmental and conservation circles for decades. The trust appointed Carolyn Chandler acting executive director, and a search for a permanent replacement is in its final stages. The Land Trust declined to comment on its personnel matters, and Feeney has not returned calls. Earlier this month, Feeney was arrested for trespassing and disorderly conduct at the home of a Land Trust employee in what authorities stated was “a domestic situation.” A state grant of more than $2.6 million will enable the county’s Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) to purchase or fix up a South County building to serve as a crisis stabilization unit and residential treatment facility, as well as mostly cover the costs for one year of a mobile crisis-response team in Lompoc. The main goals of the grant, titled SB 82, are to decrease unnecessary hospitalizations, emergency room admissions, and recidivism overall. The funding is good through July 2015. Despite giving away about $5 million per year to the County of Santa Barbara via a deal hatched a decade ago that’s set to last forever, the City of Goleta remains in good financial standing, with notable successes including the San Jose Creek restoration/flood project and excitedly awaited projects-to-be including the Target superstore and Ice in Paradise skating rink.

Morua Sentenced to 20 Years to Life Fatal DUI Hit-and-Run Hearing Offers Apologies and Accusations
PAU L WELLM AN PHOTOS
District Elections: Placebo or Panacea?
BY T Y L E R H AY D E N he pain of two families ﬁlled the courtroom where Raymond Morua was sentenced on May 28 to 20 years to life in prison for driving drunk and fatally hitting Mallory Rae Dies in downtown Santa Barbara last December. Morua will be eligible for parole after 10 years and admitted to felony charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and ﬂeeing the scene of an accident. The late-night incident and its aftermath deeply aﬀected the Santa Barbara community as both victim and perpetrator were well-liked in their respective circles. Dies, 27, was a UCSB graduate and a downtown bartender remembered for her warmth and wit. Morua, 32, is an Iraq war veteran who worked as a district representative for Congressmember Lois Capps and was a supporter of local veterans. Before Judge James Voysey handed down the sentence, Dies’s parents addressed the court, showing photos of their daughter’s life and speaking of the things she loved and also of how their emotions range from numbness to unimaginable pain. Ryan Todey, one of Dies’s close friends, spoke about crossing Anacapa Street that fatal night. He recalled hearing the sound of a revving engine and, before anyone could move, how Morua’s SUV had slammed into his friend. The Dies family has since formed an anti-drunk-driving campaign called VowMal, Todey continued: “I just want to say that even though Mallory passed … the miracles I have witnessed over the last ﬁve months have shown me that Mallory Rae lives.” Morua’s ﬁancée, Teresa Montoya, then spoke to Judge Voysey and the court, describing how Morua had struggled to reintegrate into civilian life after the army. He had seen ﬁerce and violent combat overseas, she said, and had often endured mortar bombardments that injured many of his friends, recalling one particularly traumatic event when he tended a soldier whose eye was hung from his skull. Morua received little support from the government when he returned home and drank heavily to cope with his diagnosed PTSD, she said. Montoya went on to talk about the need for more transitional resources for veterans. “I don’t want us to forget Mallory,” she said, “… but I think that understanding this event and being able to help soldiers when they return is a start.” Morua’s brother-in-law, Juan Jimenez, spoke directly to Mallory Dies’s father, Matt Dies, commending Dies for his strength in the face of tragedy, calling him a “true man.” As Dies nodded in thanks, Jimenez explained that he too came back broken from war and began to self-medicate. “You leave for war a complete man,” he said. “ … To this day, I still wake up in cold sweats and smell those bodies from my bedroom. I ﬁght demons every day.” Jimenez said he’s been sober for two months and looks to the Dies family as inspiration.

As he quietly sobbed, Raymond Morua read a statement to the Dies family about his shame and disgrace: “My heart and soul drown from the sorrow and pain that I have brought upon you and your family. … I would trade places with her at a moment’s notice.” But Morua’s tone and message shifted when he addressed Rep. Lois Capps and her staﬀers. “I am disappointed in [their] slanderous attempts to assassinate my character and to deny the fact that I was on the job the night of the accident,” Morua said. “… The fact that they are behaving so in an attempt to avoid compensating the Dies family is just as, if not more, cowardly than my actions were the night I was under the inﬂuence.” Capps has stated Morua was not working for her the night of the collision, ﬁred him afterward, and has sought to cut all ties with him. The Dies family has sued Congress in a wrongful-death complaint, alleging that with two prior DUI convictions, Morua should never have been put into the position where he could drink and drive on the clock. Before he hit Mallory, Morua had attended an annual holiday party hosted by The Santa Barbara Independent earlier in the evening. After the hearing, Matt Dies said of Morua’s statement,“It was good to hear those words.” Complete story at independent.com/news. june 5, 2014

ENVIRONMENT As expected, the California Department of Public Health issued a stricter standard for how much hexavalent chromium can be in drinking water, taking the limit down to 10 parts per billion, the country’s lowest. The change, which goes into effect on July 1, quickly triggered a lawsuit from the California Manufacturers & Technology Association and the Solano County Taxpayers Association, calling the move “baseless and extremely costly for taxpayers.” Those sentiments have also been echoed by the Santa Ynez River Water Conservation District and other smaller water-treatment agencies in that valley, where hexavalent chromium occurs naturally. More lawsuits are expected. Ventura-based consulting firm Marine Research Specialists will handle the environmental assessment of the 96 new cyclic-steam injection wells proposed by Pacific Coast Energy Company last fall; the 96 wells would accompany the existing 96 cyclic-steam wells at the company’s Orcutt oil field. The project would also bring 7,400 feet of above-ground pipelines, a permit for the 94 seep cans installed for
its original 96 wells, and a plan for addressing future seeps. The draft of the environmental report should be available later this year.
DEATHS Carlos Soto, a high-profile fixture in Santa Barbara’s road-racing bicycle scene, died suddenly this past week, prompting a quiet outpouring of support from the South Coast’s Lycra-clad, two-wheeled community, which held a wellattended memorial ride Monday night with another one scheduled this weekend. Soto, who appeared not to have aged any in the past 25 years, worked as a mechanic in numerous bike shops. He was described by several of his colleagues as the rider they most often saw heading in the opposite direction to other cyclists out on their own rides. Fred Eissler, a loud voice crying in Santa Barbara’s environmental wilderness throughout the 1970s and 1980s, died last week at age 91. Eissler led the charge against what would become Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort along Cabrillo Boulevard. Although he would ultimately lose at the ballot box in the early 1980s, his effort substantially whittled down a development plan initially so large that a substantial stretch of Highway 101 would have had to be relocated to accommodate it. Eissler was also active in the unsuccessful effort to develop a massive housing development near El Capitan campground along the Gaviota Coast. ■
Denunzio Beats Phlebotomist
Federal Judge George Wu kept alive Tony Denunzio’s federal lawsuit against the Santa Barbara Police Department and phlebotomist Lessor Michaels in connection with a violent DUI stop and a forcibly administered blood test, rejecting Michaels’s argument that he enjoyed qualified immunity from such allegations and that the blood draw conformed to Fourth Amendment search-and-seizure requirements. The case stems from the now well-known DUI traffic stop and takedown of Denunzio by Santa Barbara Police Officer Aaron Tudor on October 21, 2011. (Police claim Denunzio resisted; he claimed otherwise.) Denunzio was taken to County Jail, where Michaels took a sample of his blood to determine sobriety. Denunzio and his attorney Darryl Genis contend the conditions of the blooddraw room were unsanitary. Genis described the room in his filing as “filthy and smelly and appeared to have blood, vomit, spittle and other unidentifiable detritus.” Denunzio insists he never refused the test, but he maintains he asked that it be done somewhere cleaner. Instead, he claims, he was thrown to the Tony Denunzio ground by two deputies, and Michaels jammed the needle into his arm without first disinfecting the area. Likewise, Genis objected that Michaels could have readily seen that Denunzio was badly injured, having sustained a broken nose and broken ribs as Officer Tudor sought to detain him. He also complained the officers could and should have used the Breathalyzer machine that was located in the same room to assess his client’s blood alcohol level. In his ruling, Judge Wu waved off assertions by Michaels’s attorney that the blood draw was reasonably taken. Case law, he argued, establishes blood tests must be conducted in a sanitary fashion. The ruling hardly constitutes a final verdict for Denunzio in his case against City Hall, but it allows him to proceed with the complaint. Last year, a Santa Barbara jury wound up hung — 8-4 in favor of guilt — on whether Denunzio was guilty of driving under the influence. His attorney is seeking restitution and punitive damages for the physical and psychological damages Denunzio endured and loss of wages because Denunzio, a carpenter, was wrongly stripped of his license — Nick Welsh for three years. “We’re talking million and millions,” said Genis. 12

TWO POUND LIVE MAINE LOBSTER* MONDAY - THURSDAY Complete meal served all day
EYE TO EYE: Santa Maria Police Chief Ralph Martin (left) spoke directly
Inept or Corrupt?
The District Attorney’s Oﬃce found no wrongdoing by the police involved in the attempted arrest, and the city’s own investigation and its ﬁndings were simply a “hindsight, ramshackled, try-to-cover-ourselves, makehim-look-like-the-bad-guy justiﬁcation for what they’re really doing here,” Miller stated. Six oﬃcers had knowledge of or were highly suspicious of Covarrubias’s aﬀair but failed to report it; those are crimes that have never been prosecuted, Miller said. Attorney Dennis Gonzales, representing Santa Maria, argued that Ast orchestrated Covarrubias’s arrest despite pointed concerns raised by his troops that the timing and location of the confrontation could lead to disastrous results. Ast chose to ignore those warnings, Gonzales went on, because he wanted to embarrass a rival lieutenant, Rico Flores, whom Covarrubias was serving under. Ast was jealous of Flores and his overtime pay and take-home vehicles, and he wanted to get back at him.“The whole case revolves around money,” Gonzales stated. Knowing that Flores had a reputation for talking openly about conﬁdential information, Ast intentionally told him about the highly sensitive Covarrubias case prior to the arrest so Flores would put himself in a bind, Gonzales asserted. Flores did notify his oﬃcers that night — Covarrubias included — that some kind of investigation was taking place and to “mind their Ps and Qs.” That put Covarrubias on high alert. Nine individuals were disciplined after the Covarrubias shooting, but other than Ast, none of them have been publicly named because of privacy considerations. Gonzales also accused Ast of evading the truth when he spoke to investigators. During the struggle that night, Covarrubias was shot three times in the back of the neck by his best friend, Gonzales said. Monday was mainly devoted to opening statements, and in the only witness testimony that day, Santa Maria Police Chief Ralph Martin echoed much of what Gonzales said. Martin was hired after Macagni stepped down and issued Ast’s termination once he reviewed 1,800 pages of reports and 100 hours of audiotape collected during the city’s investigation. Lambasting Ast for “gross misconduct” and lying to investigators, Martin raised his voice, pointed at Ast, and declared: “Albert Covarrubias did not deserve the death penalty.” Testimony continued Tuesday and is scheduled all week.

Whistleblower Lieutenant Alleges Retaliation BY T Y L E R H AY D E N f only half the accusations that ﬂew back and forth this week in Santa Maria are true, the city is beset by deep-rooted corruption that led to the unlawful ﬁring of one of its longtime police lieutenants, or that lieutenant is guilty of gross incompetence fed by sinister motivation that led to the brutal death of one of his oﬃcers. Lieutenant Dan Ast, a 23-year veteran of the Santa Maria Police Department before he was terminated last March in the wake of the fatally botched arrest of Oﬃcer Albert Covarrubias, is challenging his ﬁring to an outside mediator who will submit an opinion to the city manager at the end of the ﬁve-day hearing, which Ast and his attorney opted to hold publicly. On Monday, attorney John Miller said his client was the victim of retaliation after he and two of the city’s ﬁve police lieutenants ﬁled a whistleblower complaint 12 days before the Covarrubias incident. The 29-year-old Covarrubias, under investigation for a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old member of the department’s Explorer program, was shot and killed by a fellow oﬃcer on January 28, 2012, when he resisted arrest and ﬁred his own gun during a confusing and violent confrontation at a late-night DUI checkpoint. In the complaint, the three lieutenants made allegations of widespread misconduct in the department, saying one oﬃcer emailed pictures of his penis to a woman and another received oral sex in public. They claimed concealedweapon permits were issued to unqualiﬁed individuals and that the department worked an unsafe amount of overtime. But rather than follow proper whistleblower procedures for a report against the department and its then-chief Danny Macagni — like keeping the identities of informers private to protect them from potential backlash — Deputy City Manager Alicia Lara (who is also head of Human Resources), City Manager Rick Haydon, and City Attorney Gil Trujillo immediately notiﬁed Macagni, Miller said. That set oﬀ a chain reaction of retaliation, including eight unfounded internal-aﬀairs investigations and Ast’s ﬁring many months later. Miller claimed the city is more concerned with protecting itself from a public-relations nightmare than cleaning up “a culture that led to the rape of a minor.” Ast’s involvement in the Covarrubias ﬁasco was “very minor at best,” Miller went on, explaining his client didn’t plan the arrest and was following orders that night.

Tense from the get-go, a discussion of whether to have the Chumash contract with the Sheriff’s Office for one dedicated deputy position on the reservation — on the tribe’s dime — faced backlash from valley residents, legal concerns from County Counsel, and heated debates between the supervisors before it was shot down 3-2 at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday. The proposal would have NO GO: Chumash chair Vincent Armenta and Sheriff seen the tribe pay about Bill Brown argued for a deputy sheriff position for the $850,000 a year — salaries reservation, but three of the five supervisors didn’t buy it. for five deputies to staff one position 24/7, plus the purchase of one vehicle and its annual maintenance costs — to make up for dwindling dollars from the state’s Special Distribution Fund (SDF), which had previously covered the cost of that position. In addition to patrolling the reservation, the deputy would be available to serve other Santa Ynez Valley areas during emergencies. But a dozen public commenters and Supervisors Doreen Farr (in whose district the reservation lies), Janet Wolf, and Peter Adam raised red flags about the contract’s “vague” language regarding which tribal properties would be supervised and its lack of a waiver of sovereign immunity. County Counsel Mike Ghizzoni explained that that lack of a waiver made the contract unenforceable, as it would prohibit the county from suing the tribe if need be. (Ghizzoni pointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled last week that the state of Michigan couldn’t sue a tribe without such a waiver.) Farr, Wolf, and Adam voted to have the tribe and sheriff iron out the kinks, but tribal chair Vincent Armenta nixed that idea after the hearing. The tribe won’t be back to renegotiate the contract, Armenta said, peppering his statements with jabs at Wolf, whom he called Farr’s “puppet,” and at Farr, who he said “should quit or be recalled.” Supervisors Steve Lavagnino and Salud Carbajal, along with Sheriff Bill Brown, supported the contract, reminding the board that the Sheriff’s department already patrols the area but that the agreement would see the tribe paying for new deputies instead of the county. The contract “could have been made a lot simpler and more straightforward. It wasn’t; I don’t know why,” Farr countered. “Once we sign a contract, — Lyz Hoffman we are bound by the terms of that contract.”

Last week, 200 federally endangered steelhead trout (pictured) were killed when a water pump operated by the Bureau of Reclamation — the federal agency that owns Lake Cachuma — malfunctioned. It was the 11th such breakdown this year, leading to the deaths of 376 total fish. In the latest episode, the pump feeding water to a 3,000-foot stretch of Hilton Creek broke, effectively cutting off the trickle of water sent downstream from Bradbury Dam. It turns out that legal notice, drafted by Environmental Defense Center attorney Nicole Di Camillo, had been prepared before the latest malfunction. The Bureau of Reclamation bears the legal responsibility of keeping Hilton Creek wet enough to sustain a healthy population of steelhead to help offset the abiding damage done to fish populations by the construction of Lake Cachuma. To this end, it maintains two pumps, one of which has been broken for most of the last year. Efforts to replace it have been dogged by continuous delays due to project description errors that required the bureau to start its bidding process over. This past week, the backup pump went on the fritz, causing the 200 most recent fish deaths. Employees with the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board (COMB) spent much of last week trying to save as many steelhead as they could. COMB manager Randall Ward has been frustrated with how slow the bureau has been to respond. On April 4, he became enraged to discover that the bureau halted the delivery of desperately needed state water into Lake Cachuma — during the height of a drought — because so doing interfered with the bureau’s latest stop-gap measure to get water to the fish. Bureau spokesperson Wilbert Louis Moore stated that his agency began trucking water to Hilton Creek last Friday, not to mention placing two aerators in the creek’s two largest pools to prevent them from becoming stagnant. Moore added the bureau is attempting “to permanently fix the pump problem” but said he — Nick Welsh could not comment further because of the threatened litigation.

Safety in Sisterhood Isla Vista Problems Remain Despite Ever-Changing Residents
BY K E L S E Y B R U G G E R
mid days of darkness following Elliot Rodger’s deadly and suicidal rampage in the streets of Isla Vista, collective grieving uniﬁed a broken community. But percolating through the mourning are several charged topics — mental illness, gun control, misogyny — that have begun to shift the response from grief to consideration and debate. “Right now is a tricky moment,” said UCSB history Professor Alice O’Connor, noting the diﬃcult path that will follow the grieving. “It might be a time of divided opinion about what should be done.” People near and far have bombarded the Sheriﬀ ’s Oﬃce with questions about its practices — focusing largely on the welfare check that left deputies convinced Rodger was not a threat to himself or others. In a report to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Sheriﬀ Bill Brown said questions were certainly legitimate and that he hopes it will “spur some changes” in how mental illness is approached. Brown said his department will work with Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services as it implements its crisis-response and triage ﬁeld teams — more than $11 million in grant funding was recently secured for them — which may include a coresponse with law enforcement. But Brown maintained that “Rodger’s journey” was a long and complicated one, which he did not believe could have been prevented. “In a free society, we constantly have to balance public safety with individual liberties.” He also agreed with the vigorous campaign by one of the slain students’ fathers, Richard Martinez, to end gun violence. “We must ﬁnd ways to stop this madness,” Brown said. Where discussions about gun control and mental illness have lit a fuse in one realm, talk of misogyny has ignited another due to the disturbing words and videos Rodger left behind. Despite resistance to the term “feminism” by young people today, a massive Internet trend has emerged from the tragedy in Isla Vista. Activists say the horriﬁc incident is a sobering reminder of the consequences of misogynic attitudes and is an opportunity to be constructive. Though some students argue now is not an appropriate time to advance political agendas, the discussion took oﬀ to a striking degree in the blogosphere. Countering an argument that all men commit rape, people argued all women live in fear of oppression and hostility. “#YesAllWomen isn’t about bashing men, it’s about shedding light on what women go

through,” one woman tweeted. Within days of the tragedy, there were more than a million submissions documenting instances of chauvinist sentiments. Discussion about what the term misogyny means in the real world has also emerged: In the hectic streets of Isla Vista, harassment is common. “Most people don’t ﬁght back, and that’s why it’s become the norm,” said UCSB senior Rachel Glago. “It takes more than one person to do something.” It’s important to note that Isla Vista is a community that sucks residents in and spits them out just a few years later. Populations move through a revolving door, presenting unique challenges. The six-tenths of an unincorporated square-mile populated with 20,000 people — approximately 9,000 attend UCSB and a few thousand trek to SBCC — lacks cityhood and the beneﬁts that come with it. Though traces of university eﬀorts have occurred in Isla Vista in the past, UCSB and SBCC administrators have historically emphasized that they do not have the power to dictate behavior oﬀ campus. With misogyny as a subtext, sexual assaults entered the spotlight this school year after the high-proﬁle gang rape that occurred on campus in February. The brutal incident followed a less publicized gang rape in January and seemed to indicate a grim turn to the town full of carefree minds and invincible attitudes, and the rapes caused District Attorney Joyce Dudley to rally the stakeholders. She brought a number of public oﬃcials and employees to the table in March: SBCC President Lori Gaskin, UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang and Vice Chancellor of Student Aﬀairs Michael Young, rd District Supervisor Doreen Farr, and representatives from the UCSB Police Department and the Sheriﬀ ’s Foot Patrol. Participants discussed key problems and what could be done to make Isla Vista safer. Last week, they met again — the meeting had been scheduled prior to the mass murder — and elected Dudley as the chair. Dudley plans to pitch two ideas she had before the shooting, she said. The ﬁrst is dubbed a neighborhood prosecutor, a senior deputy who would spend half his or her time in Isla Vista — acting as a liaison — and review all Isla Vista cases so ﬁlings would be consistent. Dudley also hopes to implement a neighborhood court, which would be a restorative-justice process that could intercept young people before they end up in superior court. The group meets again this Friday. ■ june 5, 2014

The big winner in this year’s budget deliberations at Santa Barbara City Hall was clearly the Parks and Recreation Department — much reduced during what’s now referred to as the Great Recession — but drawing the most attention during Monday’s special city council session were a couple of big-ticket items designed to make residents and tourists visiting downtown feel safe around the homeless. The council voted to add yet another sworn officer to the Santa Barbara Police Department’s roster — at a cost of $150,000 a year — bringing the total to 143. In addition, the council set aside $150,000 to hire two private security personnel whose function would be to patrol State Street and deter obnoxious behavior by younger street people. Sergeant Mike McGrew, representing the Police Officers Association, urged the council not to contract out such services and warned councilmembers that they will find themselves on the hook for “millions of dollars” if poorly trained private security personnel triggered lawsuits down the road. “There’s nothing like a cop,” agreed Councilmember Randy Rowse. With cash registers ringing and real estate values increasing, City Hall found itself $1 million more flush than initially expected. The council agreed to allocate an extra $53,000 for juvenile jobs programs targeting at-risk teens as well as $100,000 for new playground equipment at East Beach and $75,000 to replace the grass at Bohnett Park’s soccer field with synthetic turf. Another $25,000 will go to designing a new playground near the city’s tennis courts on Old Coast Highway. City finance czar Bob Samario said Santa Barbara’s coffers were much fuller than expected because hotel owners were reaping the whirlwind of unseasonably good weather, yielding four months last year in which bedtax revenues came in at least 20 percent higher than the previous year. Likewise, he said property taxes are on the rise, indicating that recent assessments will yield an increase of — Nick Welsh 4.5 percent in revenues, well above the 2 percent expected.

Temper Tantrum of the Early-Morning Dog been forced out of retirement and is now getting the ark shipshape and seaworthy. As expected, many questions abound. Why weren’t any of the deputies who showed up at Rodger’s now infamous Abode of Anguish on April 30 the recipients of extra mental-health training available to interested deputies? Why weren’t any county mental-health experts taken along for the now famous April 30 welfare check to help better assess an individual who in hindsight clearly spent a short lifetime baﬄing all the many mental-health experts who’d checked under his hood to see what made him tick-tock? And the big one, of course, remains why didn’t the six law enforcement personnel — two separate groups, it turns out, who all arrived by foot — conduct a Department of Justice background check to see if Rodger had any registered ﬁrearms, which they do as a matter of course and self-preservation when rolling up on a domestic-dispute-in-progress call? He, as we all now know, owned three legally purchased and registered semiautomatic handguns and was at that time stockpiling enough ammo clips for the Zombie Apocalypse. At that time, authorities knew he’d been in one ﬁght serious enough to require a visit to Cottage Hospital; they also knew he probably instigated it. They also knew he’d had a roommate arrested for “stealing” three candles worth $22. That’s weird shit. But kids in Isla Vista do crazy stuﬀ. Increasingly, it’s part of the job description. And Rodger, we are told, presented very well. He was not hearing voices and ranting. Instead, he was famously shy and timid. The deputies put him on the phone with his mother — who spoke to county mental-health workers earlier that night. She, reportedly, was satisﬁed. Two weeks after the fact, Rodger has conjured forth a hurricane of solutions desperately in search of problems that even more desperately need ﬁxing. The trouble is that Rodger eludes them all. It’s obviously true that so long as emotionally disturbed 22-year-olds can get their mitts on guns-n-ammo more easily than they can obtain mental-health treatment, such massacres will occur with such monotonous regularity that they become mundane. In some ways, they already have. Say what you will about the quality of treatment Rodger received, but there’s no doubt he was subjected to an enormous quantity. By the time he was refusing to take the antipsychotic medication prescribed by his celebrity shrink — a regular on the have-youhugged-yourself-today TV talk-show circuit — Rodger had seen an entire Yellow Pages’ worth of therapists, counselors, and other practitioners of the psychological healing arts. As a mentally ill adult, Rodger qualiﬁed as the proverbial horse you could lead to water but not make drink. The good news here is the possibility that Santa Barbara County will soon revisit a hitherto unpopular mentalhealth option known as Laura’s Law — named after a young woman shot to death in a serial shooting spree by a mentally ill man enraged his psychiatrist hadn’t returned multiple calls — which allows judges in participating counties to “order” service-resistant individuals suﬀering
from mental illness to sign up for outpatient treatment and stick with the programs. Several times over the past 10 years, the county has considered Laura’s Law but declined to opt in because no dollars and cents were provided. With the blood in Isla Vista still moist, maybe the county supes will reconsider. The good news here is that there is now money available to help pay for all the treatment involved thanks
It turns out there are new rules and regulations that require greater staﬃng requirements than County Puﬀ has been able to meet, at least in the short term. Grossly simpliﬁed, the Puﬀ Unit needs at least three certiﬁed Registered Nurses on the ﬂoor at any given time, and right now they can only ﬁeld a team of two. I am told they are working on it and that this shortage will be quickly addressed. But in the meantime,

to a bill passed last year by State Senate leader Darrell Steinberg. That bill allows participating counties to tap into the funds generated by Prop. 63, the 2004 statewide ballot initiative that imposed additional taxes on the richest one percent to pay for new mental-health services. Some mental-health advocates angrily object that Steinberg’s bill amounts to robbing Peter to pay Paul; Prop. , they correctly point out, was designed to provide new services, not secure existing ones. When asked why he robbed banks, Willie Sutton, the notoriously lovable bank robber, famously replied, “because that’s where the money is.” Sorry, Peter, but this is a stickup. The good news, at least where funding is concerned, is that county mental health has just landed an $11 million grant that will help restore many of the services and positions they’ve been forced to cut in recent years. That will go a long way to expanding the department’s crisis-intervention capacity. That’s seriously positive. The bad news, as Sergeant Riley Harwood of the Santa Barbara Police Department put it, is “Where you going to put them?” The “them” to which he refers are known colloquially as 5150s, meaning they’ve been deemed an imminent threat to themselves or others or so gravely mentally ill they can no longer care for themselves. Harwood suggested that even if the deputies conducting the welfare check on Rodger had been accompanied by a card-carrying psychiatrist and psychologist — and they deemed him — there wouldn’t have been any place to put him. For the past 30 years, grand jury after grand jury has been loudly lamenting the acute shortage of acute-psychiatric-care beds in the county’s Psychiatric Health Facility, otherwise known as “County Puﬀ.”When ﬁrst built, it was designed to hold 25. But state licensing restrictions limited the actual capacity of the place to 16. Leslie Lundt, who now runs the Puﬀ unit, says for a county our size, we need at least 40 beds, possibly as many as 70. The really bad news is that since May 1, County Puﬀ has been operating with a maximum capacity of only 12. 12?! That’s right, 12.
Santa Barbara County is forced to ship even more of its severely mentally ill to points elsewhere. Not only does this make it harder for family and friends to oﬀer what support they can — it’s far more expensive to pay for. While the supply of Puﬀ beds is going down, demand, it turns out, is increasing. In the month of May, county mental-health experts conducted 206 mental-health evaluations on the South Coast. In a typical month, that number hovers between 120 and 140. About 50 percent wind up being deemed , at which point they’re checked into one of Cottage Hospital’s ER rooms to be deemed physically ready for takeoﬀ. The last I heard, Cottage was averaging about 41 holds a month, and some of these took up to four days to clear. At its worst, up to 10 ER rooms have been occupied by holds at any given time. But even if the Puﬀ Unit had 70 beds, there’s little guarantee the Rodger tragedy would have been averted. Every deck of cards comes equipped with two jokers. Rodger, it appears, was one. Then there’s the hair-on-fire futility that comes from even mentioning gun control. The question remains how someone like Rodger legally obtained three guns in a state with the strictest background-check rules in the nation. Last year, the state Department of Justice denied nearly 5,000 gun-ownership applications for cause and delayed another 7,000. But it also green-lighted the sale of about 600,000 more. But the fact is unless Rodger had been declared an imminent threat to himself or others, there was no cause to say no. Likewise, I guess, with UCSB student and I.V. resident Kevin Tym, who last week nearly killed a neighbor of his “playing with” one of his seven handguns — which he kept company with 1,000 rounds of ammo — and it accidentally discharged. With customary bombastic restraint, Assemblymember Das Williams has jumped in to ﬁll the void by introducing a bill that would “prevent mass killings.” Hyperbole aside, the bill — germinating in the oﬃces of Assemblymember Nancy Skinner — would constructively nibble away at the edges of the problem. If passed, the measure would allow family members and mental-health professionals to seek restrain-
ing orders against those deemed too volatile, with a propensity for violent behavior, from legally buying guns. Such restraining orders would be ﬁled with the Department of Justice database. Not only could it red-ﬂag attempted purchases, but it would also red-ﬂag previous purchases, empowering authorities to seize ﬁrearms already bought. As proposed, this action could be initiated by interested parties — like parents of adult kids — or the local gendarmes. A judge would have to be convinced. And the aﬀected party would be able to appeal, but only two weeks after the fact. The National Rifle Association (NRA), naturally, has dismissed this as a “knee-jerk response,” though in fact, it’s been simmering in the legislative hopper the past 14 months in the wake of the Connecticut schoolyard shootings. Rodger’s rampage, however, provided an all-but-irresistible invitation to take it public. At the last minute, Williams and Skinner found an existing bill initially designed to promote alternative energy, gutted it, and replaced its contents with the new language expanding the restraining-order opportunities to block gun sales. Given that Rodger used two machetes, a knife, and a hammer to kill all three of his roommates multiple times over, I am surprised the NRA hasn’t trotted out their newest trope — or is it meme — that hammers kill more Americans every year than do guns. As a masterpiece of bad-faith sophistry, this argument is so ingeniously disingenuous I almost have to admire its audacity. Almost. In 2011, it turns out, the FBI reported that 496 Americans were killed by hammers, clubs, or other ill-deﬁned instruments of blunt-force trauma. That same year, 323 Americans were killed by riﬂes. Two points: First, we don’t know exactly how many people hammers actually killed. But of the 32,000 people killed annually by ﬁrearms, 11,000 bit the dust because of handguns, not riﬂes. Of those, 6,371 were homicides and 4,600 were suicide. You do the math. Nothing adds up. Lastly, there is Isla Vista, a bastard stepchild of a town disowned and disinherited by any and all responsible parties. Two riots in ﬁve months. Two gang rapes. I don’t know … maybe somebody should do something. Last year, a friend of my son’s was nearly choked to death in I.V. by some psycho looking to garrote women with his belt. She barely escaped. Not long after, he was at an I.V. party where some forcibly uninvited guests forcibly invited themselves back by brandishing a couple of nasty-looking ﬁrearms. There’s no better way to accessorize these days than with a Glock. They go with any wardrobe. The mass murder has also sparked an overdue outpouring of outrage about the culture of misogyny long festering in Isla Vista. (See Kelsey Brugger’s article on p. 15). Though hardly unique to I.V., it needs serious attention. Sexism is not just politically incorrect; it’s deadly. Scientists have just discovered more people are killed by hurricanes with female names than with male names. Why? Because people don’t take hurricanes with female names as seriously as they do male-named disasters and don’t respond as urgently as they should. Like the nightmare it’s been, perhaps the only sense that can be made is that which we impose. Maybe it’s as simple as this: Every deck of cards comes with two jokers, and Elliot Rodger was one of them. If that’s the case, maybe we should change the rules before someone deals out Joker Number Two. — Nick Welsh june 5, 2014

WE REMEMBER THEE: Isla Vistans returned to the sea in honor of the slain students.

he sinking sun turns the ocean to liquid gold as hundreds of boards glide through the water, headed for the growing circle gathered for Wednesday’s Memorial Paddle-Out. I look around to see hundreds of my classmates bobbing beside me, hands interlinked in solidarity. We splash the water; chants echo to the open sky as we remember those we have lost. A feeling of unity ﬂows through the vast circle like electricity. Saltwater mingles with tears, and ﬂowers arc the air, making rainbows on the ocean surface. Looking into the glowing faces of those around me, I have never felt so deeply connected to my fellow Gauchos. When I arrived in California from London, age 19, the kindness of this community astounded me. It took me from a scared, lonely freshman thousands of miles away from home to a passionate advocate for our little town and all its beauty. Isla Vista has mystiﬁed me, taught me, and inspired me beyond my wildest imaginings. “Now, turn to the person next to you and greet them,” the megaphone says.“Touch them, rub their hair, hug them.” I look around to see the ocean shift in a thousand embraces, and I realize in this instant that our community is more powerful than I had ever imagined. I have never seen smiles more genuine or felt hugs more sincere than in these moments, as the sun sets over the Paciﬁc Ocean. In Harder Stadium the day before, the names of the deceased had rung out: “George Chen, Cheng Yuan Hong, Weihan Wang, Veronika Weiss, Katherine Cooper, Christopher Michaels-Martinez.”Amid the silence, there was only the barely audible click of press cameras. But the beauty of this place and its people can never be captured by cameras. They will never see us enter as wide-eyed freshmen, smitten with partying on Del Playa, but leaving as activists, teachers, artists, and entrepreneurs. They weren’t there as we swept broken glass from our streets after the riots, when we cleaned our beaches, or raised $200,000 to save our local Food Co-op. We are so much more than the cumulative sum of our headlines. We are two
square miles of passion, of learning, and of growth, a town so compact that it sometimes seems we feel a collective heartbeat. My mind left the stadium and wandered to the swaying eucalyptus groves that line the bluﬀs, their trailing leaves rustled by warm afternoon wind. They carry an unmistakable scent that any Isla Vistan will recognize: the earthy fragrance of bark mixed with ocean breeze and just a hint of oil. For many of us, it smells like home. As UCSB students, we have slowly become desensitized to the ritual weekend emails that populate our inboxes in the early hours; we reach for our phones and glaze over yet another police report: “Attempted robbery” blurs with “assault” and “suspected weapon.” To the outside world, we are a town of riots, tear gas, beached bodies, and binge drinking. We seem the perfect paradox: a coastal paradise plucked straight from a movie set yet marred with the crime rate of an inner-city ghetto. Right now, we may feel small and fragile beside those who would tear us down. But this week has taught me that the only power we have against them are our small kindnesses to one another — the time we take to smile at strangers, to listen with sincerity, to show empathy and kindness. Days after the event that shook our town, a sense of frailty still ﬁlls the air, but it is tinged with something else, too. Now, words seem gentler, the smiles longer, the embraces tighter. On my way home from class, I gaze at ﬂower petals spread over and around the wounds peppering the glass of I.V. Deli, the site of one of the shootings. They almost eclipse the scars in the window and spill in their hundreds onto the sidewalk below. A banner tied to a house on Sabado Tarde sways: “What we do now is up to us.” As we begin to recover, I can only hope that we don’t forget what this week has taught us. Let us tread lightly on this beautiful patch of land we call home for four years. Let us realize that our love for one another is our only defense and that together we are strong. Like seals, a sea of students bobs in the glassy ocean, a movie scene that could be just another ■ Wednesday afternoon in Isla Vista.

We have received more letters and Voices on the Isla Vista tragedy than we can hope to print. Below are excerpts from some of them, mostly written by Gauchos. All can be found in full at independent.com/IslaVista.
ince 1993, the year I was born, 127 fatal school shootings have occurred in the United States. I am no stranger to violence … [b]ut this time, it’s completely diﬀerent. I heard those gunshots as they were ﬁred behind my house. This is my shock, my sorrow. My home being inﬁltrated by unapologetic news trucks and overeager reporters. … My heartbreak being sensationalized on TV screens around the world … It all seems so familiar, until it happens to you, and you realize that it’s completely diﬀerent.” — Margaux Gundzik, Isla Vista ◆ “The young man shot in the market … [m]y buddy coached him in Little League … WHY?!?! [do] things like the I.V. madness continue to befall one American community after another … [T]his horror happened in the vibrant, spirited, energetic, fun, crazy, electrifying good old college town of Isla Vista, California. Sure, it’s a slum to some, but to those of us who know and love it, there’s not a better place in the world for kids to take a ﬁrst dip into the deep, invigorating, wide-open pool of adulthood.” — James Mallon, San Luis Obispo
◆ “What kind of rite [of passage] involves so few elders and ends with $50,000-$100,000 or more of debt? When I look back at my and my friends’ university days, we are lucky to be alive. Many of us went to jail, did drugs, drank endless amounts of alcohol, had unprotected sex.” — Moishe ben Mendel, Melbourne, Australia
A number were about misogyny:
“[Rodger’s] misogynistic attitude of entitlement to the bodies of women, and his utter contempt for women and people of color, was inﬁnitely more dangerous than whatever mental health problems [he] dealt with. … The scariest part … [is that] I.V. features a status-based party scene where men use women’s bodies to gain standing and often do so without consent. I have personally heard the same disrespect for women that Rodger’s videos featured voiced casually … [T]he UC has been complicit in turning I.V. into … a slum, complete with slum lords and sky-high population density … The school may be publicly embarrassed of the town’s “party scene,” a term that
often functions as a euphemism for “rape culture,” but it has stood to gain immensely from the creation of an environment where twentysomethings are unchecked … Violence against women happens with regularity in I.V. … [P]art of coming together must mean dealing head-on with the fact that I.V.’s culture was not simply victimized by a violent anomaly: It was also a contribut— Andy McCumber ing factor to the murders.” Goleta
◆ “Our lecture hall … will be permanently missing two people. [The class was to end] with a discussion of … In Mourning and In Rage, [a piece] markedly remembered for the powerful chant [its] cloaked women uttered: ‘In memory of our sisters, we ﬁght back!’ … Five days before I would have taught this section, young women and men were the target of a young man’s ire because these women would not give what he had decided was rightfully his, that being their aﬀections, bodies, and sex. Let us remember the piece is from 1977. This is 2014.”

This is our law school.
— Alisa Alexander, UCSB
Many were about guns and mental illness:
“Ratiﬁed in 1790, the Constitution of the United States was written for a national population of four million … there was no army, no navy, no marine corps … The Second Amendment to the Constitution was written for settlers in a wilderness. Now 380 million people live in this country, and half of them own guns, many of those guns capable of multiple shots. Our feeble guncontrol measures make buying a gun easier than rent— Elaine Kendall, S.B. ing a car.” ◆ “As James Gilligan writes: ‘The death of the self is of far greater concern than the death of the body. People will willingly sacriﬁce their bodies if they perceive it as the only way to avoid “losing their souls,” “losing their minds,” or “losing face.”’ When ‘soul,’ ‘mind,’ and ‘face’ are all aligned with climbing a narrowly deﬁned socioeconomic ladder, and you lose your footing, violence —Glen Slater becomes an attractive option.”

Santa Barbaran Daniel Godinez Hitches His Wagon to the Stars by Joseph Miller
3 photos by Paul Wellman
n Saturday morning in the summer of ne 22012, 15-year-old Daniel Godinez catches tthe bus from his home in Goleta. With ttransfers and delays, he pieces together a ttwo-hour circuitous ride to the Museum of Natural History. He walks along the o eempty parking lot shaded by ancient live oaks, k past the h enormous blue whale skeleton, through the adobe entrance, and cuts across the peaceful courtyard. Opening the door marked “Gladwin Planetarium,” he feels his way along a dark aisle toward the control booth with the awesome presence of the sky dome overhead. In less than an hour, the audience will begin ﬁlling the seats for the ﬁrst show of the day; but now he is alone. This is Daniel’s moment; he is about to turn on the universe. If you had happened to take a seat that morning, leaning back, you would have been guided through the wonders of our solar system and beyond by an upbeat and articulate astronomer who appeared far too young to be lecturing on 14 billion years of cosmic arcana. What special opportunities did this young man, practically a boy, have to be so knowledgeable, you might have wondered? Did he have a father who was an astronomer or an uncle with a great telescope? In fact, Daniel is the son of Mexican immigrants with little formal education. While his launch pad was the public school system, and his rocket fuel his own drive, his achievement is also a testament to the importance of science electives and a responsive network of educators who cared enough to go beyond their paid orbits. In the winter of 2009, Daniel’s junior high science teacher announced there would be an opportunity for students to take part in a special program “to use a really big telescope across the world.” Daniel was not the sort of student to step forward for science electives. Though he worked at his studies, he had only been speaking English for six years, and his school record was undistinguished with low test scores and missing work. His parents worked in the service industry, and, as with many Mexicans, they valued family, religion, and practical abilities foremost. It would not have been unusual for their teenage child to forfeit secondary school in order to enter the work force. True, Daniel was enrolled in AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), a public school program intended to promote ﬁrst-generation college-bound students, but in practice he found the study-skills class dull. It felt to him like a dumping ground for language-limited low achievers, and he wasn’t particularly sure how far he wanted to go with his education. His science teacher, however, proved persuasive, insisting the activity was within reach of any student who desired it and not just a perk for A students. Admitting that he was already intrigued with the subject, Daniel ﬁnally agreed to sign up. The program turned out to be part of the Faulkes Telescope Project (FTP), the brainchild of English entrepreneur and philanthropist Martin C.“Dill” Faulkes, who wanted to provide free access to robotic telescopes and a fully supported educational program for teachers and students.“The idea of giving British youngsters access to a world-class telescope immediately appealed to me,” said Faulkes.“I could see that spending a few million pounds making science and maths in schools more interesting would have much more eﬀect on children than spending half a billion on truancy measures.” Making science “more interesting” turned out to be the ﬂashpoint for Daniel. Through this one FTP program, he found his world opening, his interest in science intensifying, and his personal focus on astronomy leading to a string of stunning achievements: county and state science-fair awards; a research mentorship at the University of California, Santa Barbara; a paid teaching

assistantship as astronomy tutor at Santa Barbara City College; and a planetarium operator gig at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, which eventually led to a staﬀ position as astronomy programs assistant there. Access to a world-class telescope certainly made a difference in Daniel’s life. But so did key mentors along the way. The ﬁrst in a long line of people who recognized Daniel’s potential was his Goleta Valley Junior High science teacher, Kim Miller [disclosure: The writer is Miller’s spouse]. She was introduced to the Faulkes Telescope Project through the Goleta-based parent company Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network (LCOGT), founded by former Google vice president of engineering Wayne Rosing. LCOGT is a nonproﬁt foundation building a computer-coordinated network of telescopes around the globe, ultimately allowing the continual observation of celestial
consulted with astronomer Rachel Street and LCOGT educator Rachel Ross. Street helped him understand photometry and “color-color” techniques that reveal whether stars that look close to one another really are, in fact, members of the same cluster. He attended “physics tea” at UCSB with astrophysicists Omer Blaes and Kristian Finlator, learning blackbody radiation and how to interpret the eﬀects of cosmic dust. The LCOGT and FTP web resources proved invaluable. Using the remote telescope interface via the Internet, Daniel directed the telescopes to image a never-before-studied star cluster in the Monoceros constellation. But these pics were just the beginning. Long advisory sessions with Street and Finlator were required to learn how to process the data. Eventually, Daniel and his teammate, Caylin Canales, were able to unlock the composition and age of these celestial objects. Their investigation “Aging the Stars” was a triumph, win-
Daniel’s office hours at Santa Barbara City College now, at times, resemble a university teaching assistantship, with up to 20 students, all older than he is, some middle-aged. “It can be challenging to tutor adults who possess … knowledge and wisdom that in another context would put them in authority,” he confessed. objects. At a 2007 science conference, Miller met FTP Director Paul Roche. He invited her to enroll her students, the ﬁrst invited from the continental U.S., into the Faulkes program. From the start, the challenge was destined for the intrepid few. The students would be allotted time on two two-meter telescopes, one in Australia and the other in Hawai‘i. But the big problem for most U.S. students was the hour. The scopes are ideally positioned globally for peering into the night sky during the British school day — less so for the U.S. West Coast. And even when a handful of students found the will (and parental permission) to huddle around a computer screen with Miller at 4 a.m., there was never a guarantee until the last minute that the skies might not be clouded over and obscured from sight. Daniel was one of only two students in Miller’s FTP trial run. He was hooked from the moment he began and was soon pushing for more. He wanted to use this new resource for a science-fair project and was thus introduced to a network of astronomy experts and educators. He Skype-chatted with Roche. He
ning a gold medal in the Santa Barbara County Science Fair and fourth place in the Physics & Astronomy division at the California State Science Fair. For all that, the night sky was just beginning to deepen for Daniel. He joined a group of area astronomy enthusiasts, the Astronomical Unit, and began attending lectures and “star parties,” where telescopes are spread out over the dark Museum of Natural History grounds. One night after a meeting, Daniel approached Javier Rivera, director of the Gladwin Planetarium, and sheepishly asked,“At some point, in the late future, maybe I could help in the planetarium?” To his surprise, Rivera said that the opportunity was available now if he was serious about learning. Two or more days a week, Daniel rose at 6 a.m. to arrive at the planetarium by 9 a.m. to practice. A planetarium operator, he quickly learned, is not only a technician but also a conceptual artist and performer. He must be skilled with programs that govern an array of projectors, but these skills have to serve a concept and mesh with a script. The beginnings
CO V E R S T O R Y were awkward, but practice paid oﬀ. After a few months, Daniel’s shows were gaining traction, especially with the younger crowd. He found ways to add pizzazz. For example, prior to showtime, instead of projecting a static night sky with sedate New Age music, he ran a roaring simulation of a rollercoaster ride on Jupiter. “I would see all the kids screaming and putting their hands up before the show even begins,” he said. While astronomy became his passion du jour, its eﬀect leavened his scholastic prowess generally. The feeling of success and the excitement of intellectual growth pushed dreams of college to the forefront. Daniel enrolled in the challenging International Baccalaureate (IB) program at Dos Pueblos High School, committing himself, in eﬀect, to a school within a school, an elite group of 22 highly motivated students immersed in a rigorous program of weighted solid courses. The steeper path would
possess specialized knowledge and wisdom that in another context would put them in authority,” he confessed.“As a tutor, I am not there to lecture students — that’s the teacher’s job. Rather, I am there as a guide.” Late last year, Daniel weathered the college application process while continuing to carry a heavy academic load. He worked for a while at a bowling alley to supplement his family income and contribute to his own vehicle expenses. Suggest to Daniel that, just maybe, driving an extra 25 miles three times a week to a tutoring job that barely covers gas might not be the best use of a high school senior’s time, and you might as well hope to separate gravity from a black hole. It’s not the money — it’s Ariadne’s thread to a dream profession. “An intellectually stimulating position, it not only demonstrates my potential and ability as an individual — it connects me with the academic community that represents my future,” Daniel

be hard, but it could imprint his transcript with a mark of distinction. It would speak to American colleges certainly; but it could also open the doors to universities abroad — a possibility that has to be considered by any young-adult immigrant wondering whether his society regards him as a ﬁrst- or second-class citizen. In the summer of 2012, Daniel was one of 80 students to be accepted into UCSB’s competitive, six-week intensive Research Mentorship Program. He became a research assistant to postdocs Finlator and Po Kin Leung, who were running computer simulations of the early universe. The following year, Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) professor Fred Marschak oﬀered Daniel part-time work as a planetary science tutor to SBCC astronomy students, a position he still holds today. Daniel ﬁrst met Marschak in the summer prior to 9th grade, when he took — and aced — the college’s introductory astronomy course. Daniel’s oﬃce hours now, at times, resemble a university teaching assistantship, with up to 20 students, all older than he is, some middleaged. “It can be challenging to tutor adults who
recently wrote in a personal essay. And then, in late December, another star sparkled in Daniel’s sky: Javier Rivera oﬀered him a part-time job as astronomy programs assistant at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History — and at nearly twice the pay of the bowling alley. Now he works two jobs that are guide wires to his future. But most extraordinary of all, spring college responses began with a supernova: Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, has oﬀered Daniel the Distinguished Scientist-Scholar Award — a four-year full tuition scholarship. “Lucky star” is not a scientiﬁc concept, but it is hard not to read in all of this an array of favorable aspects. With senior exams to face and part-time jobs at the college and the museum, Daniel shows no sign of slackening his pace: “escape velocity” scientists call it — the speed required for a rocket to break gravity’s hold.

Anyone can understand it,” said Cecelia Linayao, an artist based in San Diego who has been participating in I Madonnari for 10 years. Linayao usually works in her studio, painting on canvas, so she enjoys the human interaction and contacts she makes at this festival. “The first time I saw a street painting, I fell madly in love. I knew I had to do it,” she added.
S.B. Writers Conference When Barnaby Conrad launched the Santa Barbara Writers Conference (SBWC) in 1972, he was clear about one thing — there would be no application process. Having played a role in the then-fledgling Community of Writers at Squaw Valley, Conrad objected to the idea that writers should apply and be accepted or rejected on the basis of their current work. “He always thought that there were plenty of writers in print who would never have been accepted to prestigious writers conferences,” explained current SBWC director Nicole Starczak recently. “He wanted [SBWC] to be available to anyone who was interested in — and excited about — writing.” Forty-two years later, the Santa Barbara Writers Conference continues to honor Conrad’s inclusive vision, drawing together writers across the full range of genres The S.B. Writers Conference is Saturday-Thursday, and experience. For five days, participants June 7-12, at the Hyatt. For attend author talks, a full schedu le of events, meet with editors, and call 568-1516 or get their work critiqued visit sbwriters.com. in workshops that range in focus from screenwriting
to revising the first four pages. What loyal followers and SBWC newcomers alike share in common is their dedication to the craft of writing and their enthusiasm for the written word. With registration capped at 200, and a staff-to-student ratio of 1-3, SBWC offers a degree of intimacy that larger writers conferences simply can’t. Over the years, SBWC has also attracted some big names in writing and literature, from James Michener and Eudora Welty to Fannie Flagg and Ray Bradbury, who attended regularly until his death in 2012. This year’s lineup of speakers includes Jane Smiley, author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel A Thousand Acres, alongside investigative reporter and New York Times best-selling author Caitlin Rother. They’ll be joined by two rising stars of the fiction world: Kansas-based Laura Moriarty and Maile Meloy, sister of Decembrists frontman Colin Meloy. Rounding out the roster this year is Mark Childress, author of seven novels including Crazy in Alabama, One Mississippi, and most recently, Georgia Bottoms. — Elizabeth Schwyzer
Goleta Gets Hip Hotel
A hotel that offers yoga in the morning, deejays at night; two bars, one with billiards and a patio, one with views of the mountains and pool; an indoor-outdoor restaurant run by a globe-trotting chef; and a record player, backgammon set, and drawer-handle bottle openers in each room? It sounds like a retreat in Los Angeles or New York, but this consciously designed coolness is coming to the heart of suburban Goleta, where the boutique Kimpton Hotel chain is remodeling the old Holiday Inn on Calle Real. When it opens (optimistically July 1),The Goodland will be a place for both tourists and locals to hang out, sip drinks at The Good Bar, and dine fine at The Outpost S.B., as Chef Derek Simcik’s restaurant will be known. (He was last at the Atwood Café in Chicago.) The site was purchased last year by Makar Properties, whose president, Paul Makarechian, is a UCSB graduate. “This is a personal thing for him,” said General Manager Jeremy Wilhide during a recent tour through the property’s active construction zones. “He wants to see it the way it should be.” That includes an aesthetic that mixes retro-cool style (the spinning vinyl, Americana items in the mini-bar, etc.) popularized by the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs and similar properties with beach-house touches of surf magazines and driftwood. It also means good food, fun drinks, a.m./p.m. programming, and a vibrant pool scene. Wilhide believes steady occupancy (rooms will start around $229 a night) will come from the many visitors to UCSB, clients from the bigger companies in the area, and what he and many Goleta boosters would like to see most: people who come to explore the Good Land itself. “Goleta seems like it has an opportunity,” said Wilhide, who came to Santa Barbara to work at The Canary, which Kimpton also manages. “It seems ripe, and it feels right at least.” — Matt Kettmann

After a permit kerfuffle, Duneier was forced to take the installation down after only two days up. He is confident he will be able to reinstall Friday, June 6, and is even adding more boulders. The project, which he began planning in December 2013, features work from hundreds of knitters and crocheters from 36 different countries and all 50 states. The ultimate purpose of the installation is to entice folks to go play outside.

Close Escapes in
S.L.O. County MICHELLE DROWN PHOTOS
by Michelle Drown
ou must keep your mind on the objective, not on the obstacle,” said newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, who definitely applied that mindset when building his castle in San Simeon, California, where he and architect Julia Morgan worked for 28 years on the architectural masterpiece. While people come from around the world to visit the estate, the historical landmark is just a short drive for those of us living in Santa Barbara County and a lovely excuse to take an overnight in the nearby town of Cambria. I recently did exactly that. It was about a two-hour drive from Santa Barbara to the Cambria Pines Lodge, where my companion and I stayed the night. The hotel, which was built in 1927, is nestled in trees on a hill that overlooks Cambria’s picturesque downtown. It’s a tranquil hideaway with several bucolic gardens and sitting areas, a pool and hot tub, a walking trail around the 25-acre property, and a wee dog park for its furry, four-legged guests. We settled into our cottage, which boasted fireplaces in the sitting area and the bedroom, a luxurious bathroom that included a spa tub, and a small private patio. Leaving the car at the hotel, we followed a trail down the hill to town for dinner, marveling at the flora and views along the way. Cambria (which is Latin for Wales) was thriving in the latter half of the 1800s, and much of it still bears the architectural shadows of the Old West. Restaurants, wine bars, and boutiques fill the shop fronts, catering to the vibrant tourist industry that accounts for the majority of the town’s economic activity. We dined at the Cambria Pub and Steakhouse and noshed on a BBQ chicken sandwich and a Philly cheesesteak. We hiked back to the lodge as the sun was sliding toward the horizon. We changed into our swimming togs and relaxed in the hot tub, which we had to ourselves. In the morning we went to the main house for a delicious breakfast buffet that included scrambled eggs, sausages, biscuits and gravy, cereals, melon, fresh orange juice, and coffee. We ate our meal on the restaurant patio in a stone alcove with a fireplace. The sun was out, the wind blew the tops of the trees, and the lilt of quiet conversations filled the air, making for a serene start to our day. We headed 10 minutes up wild coast to Hearst Castle and passed grazing zebra, the offspring of some of Hearst’s zoo aniCambria Pines Lodge: 2905 Burton mals.

CENTRAL COAST DAYS: Cambria Pines Lodge is peppered with tranquil gardens, like this whimsical one laid out within a bedroom set (bottom left). In addition to panoramic views of the Pacific, Hearst Castle has two swimming pools that are works of art — the outdoor Neptune Pool and the indoor Roman Pool (top). Great blue heron (middle right) relax on the shores of Lake Santa Margarita, along with snowy egrets and numerous other feathered flyers — all of which you can see during Margarita Adventures’ kayaking tour (bottom right).
Rooms tour (there are several tours from which to choose) and spent an hour and 45 minutes ogling the grandiose history of the castle’s “social rooms.” At the tour’s conclusion, guests are allowed to wander the grounds at their leisure. The spectacular flower gardens and the pools — the glorious outdoor Neptune Pool (which unfortunately is currently without water due to repair work) and the dramatic indoor Roman Pool — are worth the $25 price of admission alone.
In the late afternoon, we headed south to Pismo Beach and the SeaCrest Hotel for the night. The inn was the accommodation portion of a package offered by Margarita Adventures that includes kayaking on Santa Margarita Lake, a reservoir sequestered in the hills southeast of the town of the same name. While the Cambria Pines Lodge offered pastoral quiet, the SeaCrest was abuzz — the 158-room hotel was host to at least two family reunions the night we stayed. The atmosphere was lively as guests enjoyed the pool, hot tubs (there are three), and barbecue area. Built more than 50 years ago, the SeaCrest earned the tagline “a bit of Hawai‘i on the California Coast” soon after it first opened. And the resort is reminiscent of
being on the islands, thanks to palm trees swaying in the breeze, a grassy lawn carpeting the area between the hotel and the cliff above the beach, and the curved architecture of the hotel’s design, which affords a stunning, unobstructed panorama of the Pacific from nearly every room. In the morning, we took advantage of the complimentary continental breakfast before setting off for Santa Margarita. We arrived at Margarita Adventures’ headquarters at 10 a.m., met our guide Matt, and then headed for the lake. Santa Margarita Lake was created in 1941 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide drinking water to the nowdefunct Camp San Luis Obispo. Swimming is not allowed, but boating and fishing are approved activities, and it was perfect spring weather for our four-hour excursion. We explored the lake’s fingerlings and saw heaps of birds, including several great blue heron and snowy egrets. Despite the shockingly low waterline thanks to years of drought, the lake still felt robust and offered a peaceful sanctuary. After a picnic lunch of sandwiches and chips, it was time to head back. Our return trip was against the wind and required steady paddling to the boat launching area. With peaceful spirits and tired arms, we climbed into the van and enjoyed the scenery as we trundled back into town. San Luis Obispo County is home to some of the most beautiful natural terrain in California — a fact of which I was ■ blissfully reminded during this lovely close escape. june 5, 2014

So, Girls — Are You a Feminist NOW?
chool’s out, and it’s a good thing, too — because across the
world, young women are being kidnapped, raped, and shot to death while pursuing an education. If that sounds shocking — terriﬁc. I’m glad to know we haven’t yet become desensitized to the violence that female students are enduring. But we haven’t become suﬃciently enraged about it, either. And that’s equally shocking. Remember when girls and women could go to school and expect to graduate unharmed? Here’s what’s happening now: • There are 164 Nigerian girls missing after being abducted from their school in April by Islamic terrorists who oppose Western education and have threatened to sell the girls into sexual slavery. • In the U.S., one in ﬁve women is being sexually assaulted during college, and more than 50 universities are being investigated by the Oﬃce for Civil Rights for mishandling sexual-assault cases on campus. • And here in our progressive, civilized town, six people were murdered when an angry young guy embarked on a rampage to “punish all females for the crime of depriving me of sex.” The killer, whose name will never appear in a column of mine, left written rants about waging a “war on women.” While all of that is happening, this is also taking place: Young women are insisting they’re not feminists. From Katy Perry to Lady Gaga, inﬂuential It Girls have been resisting the label, worried that it seems anti-man. The latest: Actress Shailene Woodley, star of The Fault in Our Stars, out this week, recently told Time magazine that she’s not a feminist. “[B]ecause I love men,” said the 22-year-old, “and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to by Starshine work out because you need balance.” I used to feel like her: embarrassed at all the fuss over women’s rights, uncomfortable with the notion that I email: firstname.lastname@example.org needed any protection from defensive chicks with chips on their (tee-hee, mannish) shoulders. Their protests made me ﬂush with shame — the way you do when your mom upbraids a waiter for getting your order wrong. Stop! Please! It’s ﬁne! I’m ﬁne! Quit calling so much attention to us! I never felt slighted for who I was. Not by anyone. For any reason. But the defensive chicks were the reason why. It was a testament to the work they had already done for women’s rights that I saw no need whatsoever for such work. I took my nearly equal status for granted, the same way kids born after 2000 will fail to see what the big deal is about a black president. Or how the next generation’s children will take their gay parents’ matrimony for granted. But to say you’re not a feminist today is to be ignorant of the hardwon victories fought on our behalf. So we could vote. Own property. Earn a paycheck. Wear pants, for god’s sake. In fact, even being ignorant is a slap in the face of the feminists who ensured our right to an education, when girls in colonial America could only attend school if there were seats left after the boys ﬁlled the classrooms. And when women weren’t admitted to any college until almost 200 years after Harvard opened its doors. And when women and men didn’t attend U.S. colleges in equal numbers until 1980 — just a few years before Katy Perry and Lady Gaga were born, for those keeping score. So listen up, sisters. As long as there are men who see us as game pieces in their political, sexual, and psychological battles, as things to be overpowered, won or lost, possessed or destroyed — then, no, you don’t get to treat feminism like an over-the-top accessory that would ruin your otherwise awesome outﬁt. I’ll give Shailene Woodley credit, though, for getting one thing right: We do need balance. And we need it fast.

HOOP HEROES Basketball Superstars from S.B. are Honored at the Inaugural Court of Champions by John Zant
PAUL WELLMAN PHOTOS
he head table in the banquet room at Fess
Parker’s appeared to be 94 feet long, the distance from baseline to baseline. Seated along it were the 20 living members of the Santa Barbara Court of Champions, a convocation of past and present members of the community “who have achieved and/or made signiﬁcant contributions to the game of basketball.” It was amazing to see them all in one place: Brian Shaw and Carrick DeHart, seated with their UCSB coaches, Jerry Pimm and his then-assistant Ben Howland, recalling the days the Gauchos ﬁrst made the NCAA tournament and rocked the Thunderdome when they upset No. –ranked UNLV. Jamaal Wilkes and Don Ford together again, as they were when they played for the Santa Barbara Dons and the Los Angeles Lakers. The coach-and-player pairings of Maury Halleck and Sal Rodriguez, Jack Trigueiro and Vic Bartolome, Andrew Butcher and Holly Ford Emerson, Mark French and Erin Alexander Brown. Westmont College’s John Moore, two wins away from 500 in his coaching career, and Kirsten Moore, who turned tragedy into triumph when she coached the Warrior women to the NAIA championship. Gary Cunningham and Gary Colson, coaches of distinction who have shared their knowledge of the game in the community. Larry Crandell, the comic of champions. When he wasn’t winning World War II, he played some basketball at Syracuse and confessed that his GPA and scoring average “combined were a 3.” Bill Bertka, who has been a scout, assistant coach, and front-oﬃce consultant with the Lakers for 38 years, the last 33 continuously, all while commuting from Santa Barbara. In the center of the table, ﬂanked by those 20, was guest-of-honor Jerry West, the Lakers legend whose silhouette has been the NBA’s logo for four decades. West attended out of his friendship for Bertka, but he also was enamored of the entire event, pulled together in a couple of months by Curt Pickering and Eric Burkhardt. “Let’s make this bigger and better next year,” West said. All who were there Monday night realized the inaugural class was something special. It also included posthumous honorees Don Volpi, the ﬁrst Dos Pueblos High coach, and journalist Phil Patton. The basketball year reaches a climax this week with the start of the NBA Finals. Both the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs received support from the Court of Champions.

Valid: 6/4-6/11 S.B. LAKERS REUNION: Former L.A. Lakers players (from left) Brian Shaw, a UCSB graduate; legendary basketballer Jerry West; and Jamaal Wilkes, an S.B. High School alum came together for the ﬁrst Court of Champions dinner.
For the Heat: “They have the one element nobody else has: LeBron James,” Cunningham said.“LeBron is just physically not normal,” Kirsten Moore said. “I saw him in person one time, and it’s unbelievable how you can be that quick and that big. His passing is what impressed me the most.” Howland said the Heat has incentive to join the Celtics, Bulls, and Lakers as the only clubs to win three consecutive titles. Bertka is pulling for Pat Riley, the president of the Miami franchise, who sat Bertka next to him on the bench when they coached the Lakers in the Showtime era. Another Santa Barbara connection is Chet Kammerer, the former Westmont coach who has worked for the Heat for 17 years as a scout and player personnel specialist. For the Spurs: Coach Gregg Popovich is admired for the way he has kept his aging team at the top of its game.“I like those old guys, and Pop reminds me a lot of Trigueiro,” Bartolome said, referring to his crusty high school coach. “We’ve never seen a coach that’s better than Popovich,” West said. “His teams play beautifully together. They’re so cohesive that when they’re playing their best, they’re really tough to beat. I have mixed emotions, because of Pat Riley, but I have to stick with the West.” Shaw came to appreciate all too well the way the Spurs play as he went through his ﬁrst season as head coach of the Denver Nuggets. “They would have won it all last year if it hadn’t been for the ending of Game Six,” he pointed out. Emerson Ford said the Spurs are hungry because of that one that got away. “The best player on the planet [James] can’t beat ﬁve who understand their roles,” Pimm declared. Pickering noted the Spurs have some younger players, Kawhi Leonard and Boris Diaw, who can take on James. French prefers the Spurs because of forward Tim Duncan,“an old-school, classy guy.” John Moore likes the Spurs because “I’m on a mission to bring the pass back to the game of basketball. I’m so happy to see the Spurs do well because they really honor the pass. No matter how good the players are, the ball has to move around.” Butcher had a suggestion: “Over the season, the injuries pile up, tendinitis and all that. If you could talk to the trainers for each team, then you would know who’s going to win — whichever team is healthier.” For more sports, including a weekly highlight schedule, see independent.com/sports.

BACARA’S MATT KETTMANN
MOVIE STAR MAKES GOGI PINOT NOIR WITH AMPELOS CELLARS
ith ﬁve decades in the movie business under his belt, Kurt Russell can pretty much be expected to reference ﬁlmmaking when discussing his six-year-old winemaking project at Ampelos Cellars on the western outskirts of Lompoc. During the long afternoon last month when Russell and Ampelos owner/winemaker Peter Work were deciding which 2012 barrels to blend into the next incarnation of Russell’s brand Gogi, the blockbuster actor did not disappoint. “This is where wine reminds me of moviemaking,” said Russell, who sees the blending process of winemaking as like being in the editing room.“You want all the best takes.” And like a ﬁlm editor who must rely on what’s already been shot by the director, a winemaker is reliant on the farming decisions made in the vineyard long before blending day. “You can’t make chicken salad out of chicken shit,” explained Russell, sporting a grin that lasted ’til the session ﬁnished nearly seven hours later. “Its structure comes from what happens out there, but the balance is what we are gonna do today.

Food & Wine Extravaganza
anta Barbara’s culinary scene is riper than ever before, so it’s an opportune time for a ﬂavorful reﬂection on how we’ve arrived. UNI UNIVERSITY: Bacara Chef Chris That’s what the Bacara Resort Turano will lead Saturday’s sea-urchin & Spa is doing this weekend demonstration with commercial ﬁsher with the ﬁrst-ever Santa BarStephanie Mutz. bara Food & Wine Weekend, which features an impressive variety of speakers, classes, screenings, sips, and bites Friday-Sunday, June 6-8. The foodie festival is beneﬁting the Julia Child Foundation, whose inspiration spent her last years living the Santa Barbara lifestyle. “We want to keep food moving forward in our community,” said Bacara’s general manager, Kathleen Cochran. “We want to educate people about food and do it for a good cause.” The weekend begins with a winery-packed reception, screening of Julia Child’s Kitchen Wisdom, and panel of experts and friends of the legendary chef on Friday; continues with panels on food writing and classes on urchin and barbecue and more on Saturday; and ends with a grand tasting on Sunday, featuring three dozen restaurants and caterers representing six distinct neighborhoods, from Los Alamos to the Funk Zone. Here’s a small slice of the pro foodies who’ll be sharing their best stuff during classes on Saturday, June 7. See bacararesort.com/ sbfoodandwine for tickets and full schedule. The Hitching Post: Frank Ostini’s family has been using authentic Santa Maria barbecue techniques in their Buellton restaurant for more than 60 years. Using wood from the area’s oak trees, Ostini will demonstrate cooking various meats and fresh Farmers Market veggies over a wood ﬁre, the way, essentially, the Chumash did it long ago. “We are local chefs cooking with the indigenous local style,” said Ostini. “It’s very original and unique.” The Hitching Post restaurant is best known for their quality cuts of beef, like the ﬁlet mignon and New York steak, but customers also rave about the perfectly grilled artichokes and mushrooms on the appetizer menu. Noon, $55. Bob’s Well Bread: Bob Oswaks of Bob’s Well Bread will guide guests through a condensed version of the 36-hour process that yields a loaf of his wholesome bread. Each loaf endures a natural fermentation process with no added preservatives, which means that ﬂour, water, salt, and yeast are the only ingredients. “When you make something organic by hand,” said Oswaks, “there’s some magic that happens there.” Since Bob’s Well Bread Bakery and Café is expected to open its ﬁrst location this summer, Oswaks looks forward to this opportunity to make a personal connection with potential customers and share the simplicity of his delightful breads with the community. 2 p.m., $25. Jessica Foster Confections: Prior to a screening of the French movie Le Chef, Jessica Foster will host a guided pairing of four of her trufﬂes with four wines from Palmina Winery. Each of Foster’s ﬂavorful confections (pictured) are handmade and hand-rolled rather than formed with standard molds, which yields a more delicate chocolate coating. “This helps the trufﬂes melt immediately in your mouth and blend easier with wine,” said Foster. The White Chocolate Meyer Lemon and Milk Chocolate with Sea Salt and Black Pepper Trufﬂes are a couple of exotic ﬂavors among Foster’s customer favorites. 7 p.m., $15. — Kailey Erlich

eople generally think of a salad as a lighter bite, but if they consider Pascale Beale’s new cookbook, Salade, they’ll have to think heavy — the book weighs almost three pounds. “If someone said to you,‘Here’s a recipe for a roast chicken,’ in your mind, you know what it looks like,” said Beale.“But salads are one of those dishes where it’s helpful to have an image. That image really helps people dive into the dish.” So there’s an image for every recipe in the 216page book, captured at the clip of four to six per day over the course of four months by photographer Mike Verbois.“When I looked at the whole shot list, the size of the book hit me,” recalled Beale.“I thought,‘My god, this is an enormous book!’” Unlike her previous cookbooks built around the seasons, Salade’s 14 chapters focus on major ingredients, from tomatoes to grains and rices to plums, peaches, and nectarines.“There’s a lot more to salad than mixed greens in a bowl,” asserted Beale. “What I’ve done is not complicated — you make something that honors the ingredients, then it will taste good.” And indeed, how could one not want, particularly right now when all the key ingredients are at their seasonal peaks, a cherry, pea, and fava bean salad?
Order Pascale Beale’s Salades from pascaleskitchen.com, or see her in person at the Santa Barbara Food & Wine Weekend at Bacara on June 8, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.; the Santa Barbara Farmers Market on June 14, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; or the Book Den on June 14, 2:30-3:30 p.m.

nine covers of songs by the likes of Buck Owens and Waylon Jennings. “I’m sentimental about a time period that I didn’t experience, without a doubt,” Shiﬂett laughed.“I don’t know if it was any better — culturally, I know that it wasn’t — but cars looked better, music sounded better, buildings looked cooler, people had style.” While the Peasants’ brand of country is “louder and sloppier and a lot Stonesier” than their touchstones, Shiﬂett admits that shifting from rocker to cowboy crooner presented its own set of challenges, at least at the start. “Growing up, I played hard rock, heavy metal, glam rock, punk rock,” he said.“When we started The Dead Peasants, playing a Telecaster through an old Fender amp with no distortion was really scary, but now it’s really comfortable.” As for what his Foo Fighting brethren think of their bandmate’s side gig, Shiﬂett just laughs.“I remember one time very early on when I was recording something at our studio. I was tracking a pedal-steel part on a very honky-tonk type of song, and Dave came into the control room and looked at me and just said,‘What the fuck are you doing?’ I’m without a doubt the odd man out in our band.” Chris Shiﬂett & The Dead Peasants play SOhO Restaurant & Music Club ( State St.) on Thursday, June 5, with Dead Winter Carpenters.

THE DEAD PEASANTS
TODD & ERIN
s a member of one of the most successful bands in the world, Chris Shiﬂett has won Grammys, shared the stage with rock icons like Jimmy Page and Queen, and even played for the president. But ask the Foo Fighters guitarist what he likes about his job, and the answer might surprise you. “I love being on some stretch of road that you don’t know and ﬁnding some cool little town and getting a milkshake,” he laughed. This week, Shiﬂett returns home to Santa Barbara with his other band, The Dead Peasants, for a concert at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club. The show comes directly on the heels of a nine-month, eightcity recording session with the Foos. As Shiﬂett explains it, the band’s forthcoming album is the product of a musical tour of sorts.“We recorded every song in a diﬀerent studio in a diﬀerent city in the U.S.,” he told us last week from Seattle. “I think part of it was driven by places that were on Dave [Grohl]’s map of musical experiences, and then part of them were just great American cites.” For Shiﬂett especially, that love of country runs deep. In addition to his aﬃnity for small towns and old-school Americana, the guitarist and singer has a rather large soft spot for classic country-western music. Since forming The Dead Peasants in 2009, he’s released two albums of honky-tonk-imbued tunes. Last year, the band’s All Hat and No Cattle took Shiﬂett’s love of the genre one step further, pairing one original song with
When tragedy takes the spotlight, everything else is temporarily plunged into darkness. This weekend, two Santa Barbara dance companies will be doing their part to bring back the light. Starting Friday AD&M dancers (from left) Sally night, Fusion Dance Schuiling, Jessica Feltman, Company comes to and Nikki Pfeiﬀer Center Stage Theater with Legacy, its 10th annual evening of works by regional choreographers. Fusion’s artistic director, Kara Stewart, explained that the show is based around personal stories, including her own. “I was adopted as a baby and didn’t meet my birth mother until I was 29,” Stewart said. “I’m telling that story from her perspective.” The resulting work poses questions about the nature of legacy, Stewart explained, asking, “Is it only the strong and mighty who have lasting signiﬁcance in this world, or can something small make a diﬀerence?” She concluded, “Ultimately, everyone has a legacy. Some will be good, and some bad. What will your legacy be?” Other choreographers for Legacy include Chris Makens, Bethany Sutherland, Audrey Uhland, and David Wilson. The show runs Friday, June 6, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, June 7, at 3 and 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call 9630408 or visit centerstagetheater.org. Then on Sunday, June 8, at 2 p.m., American Dance & Music (AD&M) presents the fourth annual Dance: Up Close and Cultural at the Carrillo Recreation Center Ballroom. This informal event oﬀers audience members a chance to sample the wide range of AD&M’s projects, ask questions, and interact with the artists. Artistic Director Carrie Diamond also sees the show as a chance to aﬃrm our shared humanity after the events of the past few weeks. “Up Close and Cultural is a family-friendly event, and it’s wonderful to see younger children in particular respond to dance in the most basic way,” she said, adding that “my new work in its essence deals with a betrayal of youth — but we are also presenting a very fun work to lighten things up.” Up Close and Cultural features new work by Diamond, as well as guest artists DramaDogs and Mari Sandoval. AD&M Music Director Eric Valinsky will perform live, and audience members will have a chance to get up and move. Stay after the performance for a reception and a chance to mingle with the performers. This is a free event for all ages; donations are welcome. To learn more, call 450-7535 or visit adam-bsb.org. — Elizabeth Schwyzer
STEEL YOUR NERVES
When we ﬁrst set our ears on Todd & Erin last year, they appeared to arrive fully formed. Despite having met just months before, the Santa Barbara duo had already locked down a vision; their songs were bright, perfectly polished pop jams; their aesthetic was similarly crisp, if stylishly grunge-y around the edges. On Steel Your Nerves, the pair continues to crank out pumped-up pop anthems clearly aimed for the dance ﬂoor. And as on their debut, the tracks here are tightly knit aﬀairs with strong hooks and big, bright melodies. Lyrically, though, Steel Your Nerves is hit-and-miss, often relying on grandscale production tricks in place of actual content. Case in point: “All I Can Think About Is You,” which would carry the weight of Ellie Goulding’s boldest torch song if only someone had bothered to continue writing after they named the thing. As such, Nerves’ strongest oﬀering also ends up being its sore-thumb moment, the mid-album highlight “Hate.” With Erin in lead-vocal mode against a gently plucked acoustic, this backward-looking little love song boasts some of the EP’s most complex and skillfully delivered vocal melodies, perhaps suggesting that scaling back may be the thing that propels these two forward. — AC

On Thursday night, Caine and his group were doing 200 years ago. When it comes right will play arrangements of music by Gustav down to it, I’m still putting notes on paper.” Mahler, then it’s his version of George Gersh— Tom Jacobs win’s Rhapsody in Blue on Friday night, and
ﬁnally, the Goldberg Canons of Johann Sebastian Bach, Caine’s way, on Sunday morning. This represents quite a challenging program for any pianist, especially with the sophisticated ears of the Ojai Festival audience listening intently to every note. Asked about the extraordinary range and deeply unpredictable juxtapositions that abound in his musical output, Caine said, “a lot of the stuff I do comes from things not turning out to be what I expected them to be,” like his rediscovery of Mahler’s klezmer roots, for example. By way of clariﬁcation, Caine added that his musical choices often involve “one small thing that somehow leads to another.” In the case of his multiple featured appearances this year at Ojai, that “one small thing” was the high regard fellow pianist and 2014 Ojai music director Jeremy Denk has for Caine and his expansive musical imagination. “Jeremy and [festival artistic director] Tom Morris were really interested in hearing Uri Caine some of the music on the ﬁrst Mahler record [1997’s Urlicht/Primal Light] again,” said Caine, “and they encouraged me to re-create something like that group. They even insisted that I get a cantor to sing ‘The Farewell’ for this concert.” Caine is referring to a rather amazing arrangement he made of music from Mahler’s “The Song of the Earth,” which includes singing in Hebrew. This won’t be the ﬁrst time that the Ojai Festival has embraced jazz. Eric Dolphy performed a ﬂute composition by Edgard Varèse there back in 1962, and the Bad Plus performed their arrangement of Igor Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” for jazz piano trio just last year. But the scope and ambition of what Caine will do this June still feels somewhat unprecedented. On Friday night, he will return to “accentuate certain aspects” of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, he explained. Joined by an ensemble of longtime collaborators that includes the dynamic violinist Joseﬁna Vergara, Caine will “open up” Gershwin’s cadenzas to uncover the music’s roots in klezmer and jazz. Asked how he felt being part of a new generation of improvising pianists who participate consistently in 21stcentury classical music — along with the Bad Plus’s Ethan Iverson, and Timo Andres (see adjacent article) — Caine replied that “there’s no question that we’ve all been thrust into new situations, but as a pianist, you come to expect that.” Here’s to expecting the unexpected when Caine sits down to play this Thursday. BILL DOUTHART
Perhaps that appreciative reaction reﬂects the fact that, unlike composers of a previous generation, Andres did not set out to purposefully startle or shock his audience. “I grew up practicing to be a classical pianist,” he noted. “[My music] comes from a place of deep love.” MICHAEL WILSON
t probably wasn’t planned, but the theme of this year’s Ojai Festival could easily be “reimagining the past through the prism of today.” A scholarly analysis of the techniques of the Mozart-Haydn era has been turned into an unlikely new opera. Uri Caine will be putting a jazzy spin on Mahler, of all composers (see adjacent story). And pianist/ composer Timo Andres, a ﬁrsttimer at the festival, will perform his “re-composition” of Mozart’s 26th piano concerto, nicknamed the “Coronation.” In it, his own voice interacts freely with that of history’s most beloved composer. Sacrilege, you say? Perhaps to purists. But Mozart did not leave posterity with a completed version of this particular piece. He wrote down the orchestral score and the passages for the pianist’s right hand, but he apparently improvised the left-hand music when he performed it. Various musicologists later filled in the score, creating playable versions of the work. But conductor Andrew Cyr, unhappy with the results, asked Andres a few years back whether he’d create a new version. “I was a little apprehensive,” Andres, 28, said in a telephone interview from his Connecticut home.“The word he used was ‘completion.’” The result, which he will perform Saturday, June 14, at Ojai’s Libbey Bowl, is somewhat disconcerting. “It’s almost like the solo part subverts the orchestra,” he reports. “I use the left hand of the piano to aﬀect the sound of the orchestra. I’ll often be playing along with them, but in such a way that reharmonizes what they’re doing. … I like the idea of being in dialogue with the classical canon rather than putting it in a glass case in a museum.” Indeed, there are moments in the piece that feel very 19th century and others that reﬂect the 20th. Andres insists this mix of styles emerged organically as he wrote. “When I started fooling around with it — improvising, reharmonizing things at the piano — it seemed to lean in all these divergent directions, almost like a discourse of the history of the piano concerto,” he recalled. “There are even some direct quotes in there, although none that are particularly obvious.” Andres premiered the work in 2010 with the Metropolis Ensemble in New York. Since then, he has also performed it with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and a recording of it has been released to positive reviews. “Some people are really into it,” he said.“A few have had a how-dare-you attitude, but those are people I’d never be reaching anyway. All in all, I’m surprised at how generally positive people are.”

Fortunately for us all, Jimmy Webb still does.” - American Songwriter Magazine YOUDUNIT: Amateur detective Peter Fletcher (Dillon Yuhasz) volleys an accusation toward seated novelist Selwyn Piper (David Couch), while the secretary Ms. Scott (Beverlee Weinsoff) takes drink orders.

ystery writers long ago figured out that one of the best occupations to write into a crime tale was the mystery writer himself because it deliciously upsets the balance of power. Typically, you have two masterminds playing cat and mouse: PAYING THE PIPER: Imogen (Susie the murderer and the Couch) and Selwyn Piper face off, while detective. The mystery Fletcher, Ms. Scott, and John Douglas writer becomes a third (William York Hyde) keep clued in. force and a wild card. Novels, ﬁlms, and even a 1971 episode of Columbo have played this premise — so does the 1982 stage comedy Murder by the Book by Duncan Greenwood and Robert King, currently being staged by Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre. Here, the novelist, Selwyn Piper (David Couch), may or may not be involved in what is or is not a murder. The joke is ultimately on the audience, as the appearances are never quite what they seem. The playwrights themselves, Piper and upstart amateur detective Peter Fletcher (Dillon Yuhasz), all seem to be vying for the last word and the most authoritative frame of reference. “Did I invent you?” asks Piper of Fletcher at the showdown near the conclusion. The illusions are braided with plenty of laughs. Witty exchanges poke fun at marriage, money, mystery, and, of course, novelists. Matthew LaVigne does a ﬁne job with this directorial debut. In addition to David Couch, the cast includes two other Circle Bar B stalwarts: Susie Couch as Imogen Piper, the novelist’s estranged wife, and William York Hyde as John Douglas, the publisher. Circle Bar B newcomers include Yuhasz and Beverlee Weinsoﬀ as Christine Scott, Selwyn’s secretary. The script’s tight exchanges are demanding, and the actors missed a few beats during this opening-weekend matinee, especially in the second half. To be sure, the ﬁrst half, by contrast, really ﬂew, owing especially to a brilliantly buoyant performance by Yuhasz. His unﬂappable and unpredictable Fletcher seemed to have stepped straight out of the imagination. He knows not only that brandy is the ideal drink to serve when you discover a body in your living room but also how to pause and break away to the audience when dishing up the corn. Weinsoﬀ is winning, too, as the ingenuous secretary. And for longtime Circle Bar B fans, who does not relish seeing the Couches spar as the Pipers, politely trying to kill one another? Murder by the Book plays through July 13. Get yourself up to the ranch, help yourself to the sumptuous summer barbecue, and then walk down to the ■ theater and see if you can ﬁgure out whodunit.

YG and DJ Mustard at Earl Warren Showgrounds and Lemaitre at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club. Tuesday, May 27, and Thursday, May 29. Reviewed by Jake Blair
ake note, Santa Barbarians. Last week, a sold-out crowd broke down barriers at Earl Warren Showgrounds as fans packed the front of the stage ahead of a performance from YG and DJ Mustard. The rapper/producer duo hails from Los Angeles and is some of the talent behind hip-hop’s sudden West Coast resurgence, thanks to tracks like “My N***a” and “Who Do You Love?” The show was an unmitigated success. Sure, the sound wasn’t great (as YG noted to his manager a few times throughout the set, though his phrasing wasn’t quite as polite). And the use of plastic fencing without any kind of support made the eventual stage rush inevitable. But none of that stopped the thousands in attendance from getting the most out of their night. Opening sets from Santa Barbara’s own Fresh and DJ Mustard were more than enough to prepare the crowd for headliner YG. DJ Mustard’s set in particular was striking, if only because it served as a reminder that he’s produced a solid chunk of the Billboard Hot (including Iggy Azalea’s current chart-topper,“Fancy”). Opening with the very same “Momma Speech Intro” featured on the record, YG’s performance was a rather straightforward reﬂection of the tone of his debut full-length, My Krazy Life, which has sold more than 140,000 copies since its March release. Similarly notable was last Thursday’s concert at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, where a capacity crowd turned out for Norway’s Lemaitre, an up-andcoming dance-pop group that had opened for Justice in Paris just two nights prior. The appeal and reach of Lemaitre’s sincere, crooning electro is larger and wider than ever before, especially in the ﬁrst summer of the post-“Get Lucky” world. In the past, a Norwegian dance group might have been a bit of a hard sell in Santa Barbara. And the same could easily be said of a hip-hop show large enough to ﬁll the Earl Warren. But times are changing, and, thankfully, a handful of young talent bookers and promoters have forced folks to take notice. Recently, sold-out shows at improvised venues like Earl Warren and Casa de la Raza have proved that Santa Barbara is full of people who are willing to endure things like moshing at equestrian centers for the sake of seeing artists that they care about. Might it be nice to have one of these shows in a theater? Of course. But apparently no one is willing to wait for area venues to ﬁgure out ■ how much money (and good will) they’re leaving on the table.

Nun but the Lonely Heart
our annual ode to
Ida. Agata Trzebuchowska, Agata Kulesza, and Dawid Ogrodnik star in a ﬁlm written by Pawel Pawlikowski and Rebecca Lenkiewicz and directed by Pawlikowski. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino
gata Trzebuchowska’s eyes are wide and dark and seem even more so because her face is wrapped in a novitiate’s scarf and then ﬁlmed in unsparing black-and-white against a background that re-creates 1960s Soviet satellite Poland. As the title character, Ida is our passport to this world, and all the environments and institutions we enter with her seem bleak. There are urban apartments and peasant farmhouses — all beautifully composed — as well as a jazz café, where Ida gets more than a glimpse of a world she has been pushed out of the convent to see, a world possibly without God in it. But even when she takes oﬀ her nun clothes and sways to the music or rides across town on a bus or sits on the edge of cot in a parish priest’s spare room, it’s Ida’s eyes we watch as she watches her world. Ida’s story is simple but set against a number of archetypal circumstances. Just before she is to take her vows, the convent’s superior forces her to leave the cloistered life and look up her last remaining family. What she ﬁnds is worldly Aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza), who in turn tells Ida that she needs to examine the story of her family, and by the way, she’s Jewish. Wanda herself, a former Communist party oﬃcial, becomes another story of lost faith, and in the end Ida climbs out of a grave and walks a long road against prevailing traﬃc.
EUROVISION: Set in 1960s Poland and shot in a style reminiscent of that era’s art cinema, Ida features a captivating debut from Agata Trzebuchowska. But the outcome of this spiritual odyssey is nowhere near as interesting as the scenes that director Pawel Pawlikowski creates. The monochromatic photography and the reduced image aspect of the ﬁlm make us feel as if we are watching something created during that era, the golden age of European art ﬁlms. But Ida also avoids mere gimmickry — it’s not The Artist — with stunning compositions and weird perspective choices that force us out into the ﬁlm’s wintry bleakness. This is Trzebuchowska’s ﬁrst screen performance, and in the end, it seems barely relevant whether her character ﬁnds God or Man on her ■ quest. What you won’t forget are her eyes.
Wicked Bad Maleﬁcent. Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, and Elle Fanning star in a ﬁlm written by Linda Woolverton, based on the story by Charles Perrault, and directed by Robert Stromberg. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino
his movie’s dimwitted concept mimics the same urge that created the long-running Broadway hit Wicked. The formula is simple enough: Begin with a popular (okay, iconic) story and isolate the evil character, who is unarguably more interesting than the pudding-white protagonists. Problems begin with the next step, however, when the postmodern revisionist writers decide to rehabilitate their villains into misunderstood heroes, turning them from demon artists into mopey victims. It works a little better in the Broadway show, but SNOOZER: Angelina Jolie stars in Maleficent, an this movie, where Disney undermines one of its uninspired revision of Sleeping Beauty. own great creations, is just plain stupid.

(102 mins.; NR)
Thereâ€™s something adorably scrappy about Lukas and Coco Moodyssonâ€™s We Are the Best! Directed and adapted by Lukas, and based on the comic by his wife, Coco, this little Swedish indie ďŹ‚ick has its heart in the right place â€” even if it takes a little long to get going. The story follows best friends Bobo (Mira Barkhammar) and Klara (Mira Grosin), two 13-year-old punks living in Stockholm at the tale end of the punk movement. Shunned by their female classmates and ignored by their male counterparts, the girls decide to form a band, mostly out of boredom. With no instruments and a barely there skill set, the duo adopts fellow loner Hedvig (Liv LeMoyne), an angelic guitar prodigy who also happens to be a conservative Christian. Two jam sessions and one drastic haircut later, the trio is well on its way to juniorhigh punk-rock glory. Though We Are the Best! struggles to nail down a protagonist (Bobo is picked on by Klara, but Hedvig is sort of ostracized by both), it ultimately succeeds in spite of its lack of focus. Thereâ€™s a wonderfully unďŹ ltered, childlike quality to the way these tough-acting characters interact with each other and the world, and while frustrating at times, it is ultimately this ďŹ lmâ€™s saving grace. Stripped of their brazen attitudes and antiâ€“New Wave sentiments, Hedvig, Klara, and Bobo are the universal everygirls â€” insecure, love-seeking, and impossibly anxious about their place in the world. That the Moodyssons echo these sentiments with a loud, raw, and unexpectedly masculine soundtrack is what pushes Best! from good to great. (AC) Wed., June 11, 7:30pm, Plaza de Oro

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JUNE ARIES
(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): “We are born with whirlwinds, forest ﬁres, and comets inside us,” writes novelist Robert R. McCammon.“We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible.” That’s the bad news, Aries. But now here’s the good news: The next 12 months will oﬀer you a series of excellent opportunities to re-magic yourself. If you have not yet caught wind of the ﬁrst invitation, I bet you will soon.
(June 21 - July 22): “Little horses cannot carry great riders.” So says a Haitian proverb. Now, in accordance with the astrological omens, I’m urging you to meditate on its meaning for your life. Here are four possible interpretations: () Are you a “little horse” trying to carry a “great rider” who’s too much for you? () Are you a little horse that could grow into a bigger, stronger horse worthy of a great rider? () Are you a “great rider” who is in need of a horse that is big and strong enough to serve your big, strong ambitions? () Would you like to be a “great rider,” but you can’t be one as long as you have a horse that is too small and weak?
(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): My favorite bridge in the world is the Golden Gate Bridge. In the hundreds of times I have driven on it over San Francisco Bay, it has never let me down. I’ve always gotten from one side to the other without any problem. In addition to its reliability, it uplifts me with its grandeur and beauty. What’s your most beloved bridge, Libra? I suggest that in the coming weeks you make it your lucky charm, your magical symbol. Why? Because the next chapter of your life story requires you to make a major crossing. You will traverse a great divide. Having your favorite bridge as a shining beacon in your imagination will inspire your strength and courage as you travel.
(Apr. 20 - May 20): “When given a choice between owning an object and having an experience,” says art critic Holland Cotter, “I always choose the experience.” He prefers to spend his money on adventures that transform his sense of self and his understanding of the world. I recommend that approach to you in the coming weeks, Taurus. The most valuable “possessions” you can acquire will be the lessons you learn, the skills you hone, and the relationships you ripen.
(July 23 - Aug. 22): Declare victory, Leo. Even if victory is not quite won yet. Even if your success is imperfect and still a bit messy around the edges. Raise your arms up in elated triumph and shout, “I am the puriﬁed champion! I am the righteous conqueror! I have outsmarted my adversaries and outmaneuvered my obstacles, and now I am ready to claim my rightful rewards!” Do this even if you’re not 100 percent conﬁdent, even if there is still some scraping or clawing ahead of you. Celebrate your growing mastery. Congratulate yourself for how far you’ve come. In this way, you will summon what’s needed to complete your mission and achieve ﬁnal, total victory.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): In Marcel Proust’s novel Swann’s Way, the narrator speaks of how profoundly he is inspired by an older writer named Bergotte: “Each time he talked about something whose beauty had until then been hidden from me, about pine forests, about hail, about NotreDame Cathedral . . . with one image he would make that beauty explode into me.” I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because in the coming days I suspect a great deal of beauty will explode into you. Why? I think it’s because you’re more receptive than usual to being delighted and enchanted. The triggers could be anything: exciting people, eavesdropped conversations, good books, surprising music, and who knows what else?
Homework: What other sign would you want to be if you could take a vacation from your actual sign? Why? Write: firstname.lastname@example.org.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Give special attention to what will last the longest. That’s my main recommendation for you in the coming weeks. Devote less of your energy to transitory pleasures and short-term hopes. Turn away from the small obsessions that demand far too much of your energy. Withdraw from the seemingly pressing concerns that will soon start to fade because they really aren’t that important. Instead, Virgo, devote your love and intelligence to the joys and dilemmas that will animate your life well into the future. Express reverence and care for the mysteries that will teach you and teach you and teach you for years to come.
We are forever proud of you! With Love from your entire Family THE INDEPENDENT
june 5, 2014
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): If you are in even moderate alignment with cosmic rhythms during the next 12 months, you will be a connoisseur and master of recycling. I’m speaking metaphorically here. What I hope is that you will reanimate worn-out inspirations and convert faded dreams into shiny new fantasies. You will ﬁnd ways to revive alliances that went oﬀ track. A once-vibrant shtick or trick that lost its cool could be retrieved from the ash heap of history and turned into a fresh, hot asset. Gear yourself up for some entertaining resurrections.
(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): U’s Bono has called Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah” “the most perfect song in the world.” It is mournful and triumphant, despairing and uplifting. It’s a riddle that improbably oﬀers cathartic release. Over 300 recording artists have done cover versions of it, and it has even been the subject of books. And yet it was a challenge for Cohen to compose. He wrote more than 80 verses before choosing the few he would actually include in the ﬁnal version, and in one famous session he resorted to banging his head on the ﬂoor to stimulate his creative ﬂow.“To ﬁnd that urgent song,” he said, took “a lot of work and a lot of sweat.” I nominate “Hallelujah” to be one of your sacred symbols for the next 12 months, Scorpio. From your strenuous eﬀort, I predict, will come masterful creations.
(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Let me outline the breakthroughs I hope to see for you in the coming months. First, what is pretty good about you will not interfere with what is potentially great about you, but will instead cooperate with it and boost it. Second, your past accomplishments won’t hold back your progress; you will not be tempted to rely on them at the expense of your future accomplishments. And third, the brave ideas that have motivated you so well won’t devolve into staid old dogmas; you will
(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): The Buddhist meditation teacher Chogyam Trungpa said that one of the best ways to become fearless is to cultivate tenderness. As you expand your heart’s capacity to feel compassionate aﬀection for the world, you have less and less to be afraid of. That’s the opposite of the conventional wisdom, which says you become brave by toughening up, by reinforcing your psychic armor. Of all the signs of the zodiac, you Pisceans are best set up to beneﬁt from Trungpa’s method — now even more than usual.
(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): I wish I could tell you that your power animal this month is the eagle or dolphin or panther. Having a glamorous creature like that as your ally might boost your conﬁdence and charisma. To be paired with one of them might even activate dormant reserves of your animal intelligence. But I can’t in good conscience authorize such an honor. That’s not what the astrological omens are suggesting. In fact, your power animal this June is the bunny rabbit. Please understand that there is no shame in this. On the contrary. You should be charmed and appreciative. It signiﬁes that you will be fertile, fast, a bit tricky, and very cute. (To read an essay on the mythology of the rabbit as trickster, go here: tinyurl .com/rabbittrickster.)

The annual rosé wave is already crashing, just in time for the beach days of summer, and this one, by Sta. Rita Hills-based winemaker Kris Curran (who put Sea Smoke Vineyard on the map before moving onto her own projects) is both light and delicious — but it’s not really a rosé at all. It’s a Grenache Gris, but that varietal hasn’t yet been approved by the feds, so they make her call it rosé. Only four acres are planted domestically, including the ones she requested at Tierra Alta Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley’s new Ballard Canyon appellation, but there should be more. See d-cwines.com.

Jill’s Place Recovers, Reopens
ill’s Place has been closed since a ﬁre ravaged it in May 2013. But disappointed diners are now fully in luck — Jill’s Place has fully reopened. After the ﬁre gutted her restaurant, Jill’s Place owner and local Jill Shalhoob took the opportunity to make her Santa Barbara institution even better. The restaurant interior received a major update. The back of house is completely new, with all new cooking equipment. In addition to the fresh face, the classic Jill’s Place menu returns (steaks, chops, chicken, fresh ﬁsh, burgers, and cocktails), along with a few additions. The renovated restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Monday-Saturday at its original location, Santa Barbara Street.
SWEET SENSATION: A line of students goes out the door at the new Spudnuts in Isla Vista.
popular Spudnuts donut shop has opened a new location at Seville Road in Isla Vista. When the eatery ﬁrst opened on May 29, they sold out before noon, restocked with another batch of donuts, and then sold out again. Seems the donut shop has been greeted with open arms and high demand. Spudnuts oﬀers donuts, pastries, beverages, sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches, and boba.
BACON AND BRINE OPENS: A new restaurant/ sandwich shop has opened at Atterdag Road in Solvang. The eatery uses all locally raised pigs and produce from neighboring areas, with no ingredients from over 60 miles away, except salt, vinegar, and spice. Bacon and Brine oﬀers a rotating menu of sandwiches based on what part of the pig they are using that week. About ﬁve sandwiches a week are available as well as soup and a few salads. Bread comes from The Baker’s Table in Santa Ynez, and they are making all of their own pickles and beverages. Everything is available gluten-free. The restaurant is open daily 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. except Wednesdays. For more information, call 688-8809 or visit baconandbrine.com.
FULL OF LIFE FLATBREAD UPDATE: I called Full of Life Flatbread in Santa Ynez and learned that they are no longer planning to open at the new Santa Barbara Public Market on Victoria Street. I was told that the baker is continuing to look for another location on the South Coast.
LA SUPER-RICA UPDATE: Reader Eric tells me
that an expansion of the kitchen is in progress at La Super-Rica Taqueria ( N. Milpas St.). I am told that chips and more are coming soon.

McCONNELL’S UPDATE: Santa Barbara’s McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams is planning to open an ice cream shop in downtown Los Angeles’ Grand Central Market this July, next to Wexler’s Deli. When asked why they chose Grand Central Market, owner Michael Palmer said,“This brand goes back almost 70 years in California in Santa Barbara. My family goes back 150 years in California. Growing up in Los Angeles, Grand Central Market was a place we would always go.” MONTECITO CONFECTIONS SOLD: Reader Matt let me know that Your Cake Baker, Inc., run by Wayne Kjar, has recently acquired the location, website, and email of the now-defunct Montecito Confections at Coast Village Road. Kjar continues to operate a store at Cliﬀ Drive on the Mesa.

therein: As more fully described in said Deed of Trust The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 30 Nectarine Avenue, Goleta, CA 93117. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to‑wit: $86,330.54 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. The Beneficiary may elect to bid less than the full credit bid. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located and more than three months have elapsed since such recordation. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (626) 579‑5350 or visit this Internet Web site , using the file number assigned to this case 14‑02‑781. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.
