It’s officially summer, which means one thing for The Santa Barbara Independent arts and entertainment offices: intern season. This year, our inboxes were inundated with hungry coeds looking for a chance to play scribe, but it was Blake Harper’s résumé that stood out strongest. A recent Westmont grad and former arts and entertainment editor for the school’s Horizon newspaper, Harper is well-versed in the print game. He also knows what he likes, citing the Beatles and Tarantino among his cultural Illuminati. As for writing, Harper does it all, but his heart, he says, belongs to the theater. “I like that you get to see it live; there’s a performance aspect that fosters connection. I also like that there’s just such a wide range of what theater can be.”

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

With his 18th birthday two weeks behind him and facing adult charges, Desmond Edwards appeared at a preliminary hearing on 6/25 for alleged assault after throwing an eight-pound backpack at Officer Antonio Magaña in April during Deltopia. In court, Magaña described chasing a young man wearing a white shirt and pink shorts through crowded Isla Vista streets, getting hit in the face, falling, and losing consciousness. Judge Brian Hill ruled that the officer’s 20 stitches did not amount to “mayhem” and dismissed that charge. Edwards remains in Juvenile Hall on $75,000 bail and appears in court again on 7/8. CHP officers issued a call for backup from the Santa Barbara Police Department and the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office on Sunday night to help contain a brawl involving 100 people that started at a concert of La Banda MS held at the Earl Warren Showgrounds. A fight broke out during the concert, and efforts by the four private security guards to stop it reportedly served to escalate the mayhem. Four CHP cars arrived at the scene — the Showgrounds are a state-owned facility — but that proved insufficient. Santa Barbara police dispatched six to the scene, and the Sheriff’s Office sent some deputies, as well, quelling the disturbance. Authorities say one arrest was made for battery. Last Thursday evening was a beautiful one, at least until 9:41 p.m. when a vegetation fire at UCSB’s Coal Oil Point Reserve began to surface. Amid loud bangs and high flames, a half-dozen engine crews kept the Tank Fire away from a eucalyptus grove as winds varying from a light breeze to 30 mph gusts blew the fire east and south. A dozen more crews came down Devereux Point’s narrow road and took up positions to protect Venoco’s nearby tank farm. Aided by a southerly wind, the fire was contained by morning with no structures lost or injuries, though the cause of the blaze and the full impact on the threatened snowy plover colony at the reserve are currently unknown. As Julio Diaz — the former Santa Barbara doctor known as the “Candyman” — awaits his sentencing on 11 federal drug-trafficking charges, the civil cases against him and the pharmacies that filled his patients’ prescriptions continue to make their way through the courts. The families of Adam Montgomery and Steven Meadows — two of the 11 Diaz patients who died in a five-year period — have settled their wrongfuldeath claims with the pharmacies. The terms of the settlements are not public. A third lawsuit, filed by the husband of deceased Elizabeth Shull, continues, and a fourth lawsuit filed by surviving patient Courtney Canter has dropped charges against the pharmacies. Lawyers for Sansum Clinic Pharmacy, San Ysidro Pharmacy, L.M. Caldwell, and The Medicine Shoppe didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Believer’s Edge, an area religious organization, will provide just-released jail inmates with cell-phone-charging services, snacks, and coffee during late-night and early-morning hours, under an agreement supported by the Sheriff’s Office and approved by the supervisors on 7/1. The contract, through the end of 2014, stipulates that the group must provide “neutral and nonideological support” to the releasees. A separate program providing cab rides to late-night releasees received $10,000 from the county last month to keep it afloat for another year.

Although the number of homes listed for sale are down by 13 percent from last May, sales prices have jumped by 23 percent with the median price of a South Coast property — from January 1 to the end of May — weighing in at $1.1 million. That compares to $892,000 in 2013 and $848,000 in 2010. For the month of May alone, the median listing price was $1.15 million and the actual sales price was $1.12 million. Excluding listings in Montecito and Hope Ranch — which saw both average and median prices up — this year’s median sales price is thus far $991,000. That’s up from $805,000 the year before.

COUNTY Supervisors Steve Lavagnino and Salud Carbajal will author a ballot argument in favor of increasing the county’s hotel bed tax rate from 10 percent to 12.5 percent, a suggested hike going before voters in November. The board voted 4-1 in April to put the measure on the ballot. Hotels in the county’s incorporated regions — with Montecito accounting for the bulk of the revenues raised — have used the 10 percent figure for 24 years, compared to other cities using 12 percent; the jump would mean an extra $1.9 million every year.

Recovery Blues

Low-income workers throughout the South Coast will get a boost this week as the state’s new minimum-wage law goes into effect this Tuesday, raising the minimum amount from $8 an hour to $9 an hour. Given the “extreme competition” for rental housing throughout the South Coast, where vacancy levels have dropped below one percent — so described by the UCSB Economic Forecast Project — it remains to be seen how much actual relief that will provide. Since the recovery, report author Dawn Dyer stated, rents have hit “record high levels.” According to Dyer, the “average” two-bedroom apartment now costs $1,922 a month. Assuming renters spend no more than one-third of their income on housing — the most they should, economists contend — Dyer calculated tenants of such a unit would need to earn $66,000 a year to qualify. Rents, she noted, remained flat during much of the recession, but have been making up for lost time since late 2012. During the recession, she added, median family income throughout the South Coast fell by 8.5 percent, and even with the recovery, still remains 2.5-3.5 percent below pre-recession levels of 2006. While unemployment in Santa Barbara County is among the lowest in the state — and even lower throughout the South Coast — the majority of new jobs created since the recession have been heavily weighted in favor of service-industry positions, which tend to pay close to minimum wage levels. Efforts at the state level to increase wages even further — up to $13 an hour by 2017 — were voted down in committee last week. With that bill defeated, the next increase in the minimum wage — to $10 an hour — is slated — Nick Welsh for 2016.

The Chumash are working with the county to sign its contract under the Williamson Act, which dictates the use of the 1,400 acres — known as Camp 4 — the tribe purchased in 2010. A Santa Ynez Valley activist group voiced frustrations over the tribe not formally accepting the contract while benefiting from the decreased taxes under the Act. The county discovered the error in December; the tribe said it “fully intends” to sign the document. The supervisors rejected the tribe’s Camp 4 annexation request in October; the request is now a proposed piece of Congressional legislation.

Antenna system additions planned for various Montecito sites — proposed by Crown Castle, an agent of Verizon — are still up in the air, after the supervisors voted 5-0 Tuesday to continue its discussion on 7/8. In May, the Montecito Planning Commission (MPC) denied the company’s plans, citing aesthetic concerns. Many Montecito residents expressed similar frustrations Tuesday and questioned whether the area suffers from lackluster coverage. Supervisor Salud Carbajal, who asked that the company consider working again with the MPC on a compromise, said the existing plan — which has undergone nearly 150 iterations — “flies in the face” of Montecito’s “semi-rural character.”

Assembly’s Committee on Natural Resources with a 6-2 vote last week. The bill would eliminate an exception in the law that allows drilling to occur three miles off the coast if state reservoirs are being drained by federal operations. Next, the bill will head to another committee to be reviewed for fiscal impact. If it passes, both houses would have to vote on it before it reaches the governor’s desk. A $200,000 Coastal Conservancy grant okayed by the supervisors on 7/1 will allow the county, over the next two years, to look at how climate change could affect Santa Barbara’s coastal areas and seaside infrastructure. County staff will model possible scenarios to pinpoint which spots are most susceptible. The money — coupled with $50,000 from the county and $22,000 from the Nature Conservancy — will pay for the first phase of a two-part program, which will focus more on policy; the county will seek out a similar grant for the second phase.

DEATHS More than 200 people gathered at Skofield Park on Sunday to remember the life and legacy of winemaker Chris Whitcraft, who rose from a retail job selling wine at Mayfare in Montecito to become one of the most celebrated and important vintners in Santa Barbara history. On hand were a who’s who of pioneering California winemakers, including Richard Longoria, Frank Ostini, and Burt Williams of Williams Selyem. Whitcraft, who died at the end of May at age 64, was one of three wellknown Santa Barbara wine country people to pass away within just weeks of each other; Dave Robinson of Vintegrated Solutions and Holly Eve Brooks of Pence Ranch were the two others. ■

Hedge Spite Bite

The Santa Barbara City Council attempted to fuss a new hedge-height ordinance into submission by limiting the impact of “spite” complaints filed by individuals not immediately affected by the hedges complained about. Ultimately, a council majority agreed that anyone had standing to complain about hedges that blocked the view of oncoming traffic or posed a similar safety concern. Beyond that, the council agreed city zoning enforcement officers would not take enforcement action in response to complaints filed by GRATING GREENERY: Hedge wars between anyone living more than 300 feet from the neighbors have prompted attention and offending hedge. action from City Hall. The issue was germane because six years ago, one Riviera resident filed as many as 20 complaints against property owners throughout the city, which had the effect of bringing enforcement of the city’s antiquated hedge, wall, and fence height ordinance to a screeching halt. The resident in question contended the rules had been selectively applied and that if she was to be penalized, so would others who were equal or worse offenders. This spate of spite complaints, however, has not occurred since, and city planning officials argued unsuccessfully against limiting complaints. In the meantime, the council has also liberalized its rules, allowing substantially higher hedges and walls than the previous ordinance adopted in 1957 did. In addition, the new ordinance provides a process by which property owners can seek even greater allowances, assuming, of course, their immediate neighbors agree. The council is seeking to establish specific formulas by which neighbors, their hedges, their walls, and their views can coexist harmoniously while providing enforceable but flexible limits by which disputes, should they arise, can be resolved. The vote was 6-1 — Nick Welsh with Councilmember Randy Rowse opposing.

‘Bubble Ordinance’ Not Popped Yet Supreme Court Ruling Probably Won’t Change S.B. Abortion Protest Law

D

BY N I C K W E L S H espite this week’s Supreme Court decision declaring unconstitutional a Massachusetts law limiting how close anti-abortion protestors can get to medical clinic entrances, it appears that similar restrictions enacted by the Santa Barbara City Council in 1993 could probably withstand legal challenge. In contrast to the Massachusetts law, which made it a crime to stand within 35 feet of any entrance to any reproductive health clinic, Santa Barbara’s “bubble ordinance” established a much more modest buffer zone, limiting public demonstrations to no more than eight feet of the driveway leading to Planned Parenthood. Also restricted were entrances to other medical clinics where abortion services were provided and churches. “We still need to do more research, but it appears our ordinance meets the concerns expressed in the Supreme Court decision,” said City Attorney Ariel Calonne. The justices objected that the 35-foot barrier was excessive. At issue, according to their majority opinion, was the ability of sidewalk counselors to approach those entering clinics to provide them information about alternatives to abortion. Public sidewalks and public ways, the majority reasoned, have traditionally been key avenues for public discourse, and restrictions on free speech there should not be severely limited. Given the 35-foot buffer, sidewalk counselors found themselves forced to shout to be heard, making them appear threatening and intimidating. This, the majority found, deprived them of the ability to engage in “close, personal conversations and distribution of literature,” forms of expression traditionally “associated with the transmission of ideas.” The Massachusetts law was passed after years of loud, rambunctious, occasionally violent protests outside a Boston clinic. Similar protests hit Santa Barbara in the early 1990s, with demonstrators affiliated with Operation Rescue congregating outside Planned Parenthood several times a week, chanting, leafleting, and occasionally masquerading as patients to distribute literature inside. At that time, an abortionist in Florida had been shot to death by a protestor, and arson claimed a clinic in San Luis Obispo. A Santa Barbara doctor working with Planned Parenthood had been targeted by

demonstrators who gathered outside his church on Sundays and outside his home, carrying large photos of aborted fetuses. One protestor from Poland lay down behind the doctor’s car, preventing him from leaving his driveway in the morning. When the doctor went inside to call the police, the protestor handcuffed himself to the rear axle of the car. The actions achieved sufficient intensity that Santa Barbara’s Planned Parenthood administrators felt compelled to train volunteers to act as escorts for those seeking services. In one incident, police and firefighters were called in response to a bomb threat. No bomb, however, materialized. At that time, three members of the City Council were either members of the Planned Parenthood board or strong supporters. When Planned Parenthood sought protection, its organizers had strong allies on the council. The issue was hot and heavy, with both sides showing up in force. Among those testifying in support of a protective ordinance was current Mayor Helene Schneider.“It was hairy,” she recalled.“That was the first time I ever spoke in front of the City Council.” Ultimately, the council adopted a measure that established a 100-foot buffer zone by the driveway leading to Planned Parenthood. Once inside this bubble zone, the ordinance stipulated that protestors had to withdraw to an eight-foot distance if asked to do so. Antiabortion activists took their case to the American Civil Liberties Union, which declined support. They took the city ordinance to court and initially prevailed. By that time, more than 100 citations had been issued for violations. City Hall appealed, and in 1999, the th Circuit Court of Appeals would uphold the constitutionality of the Santa Barbara ordinance. Included in that decision is language that went to the heart of the Supreme Court majority’s thinking, and that’s what makes Calonne believe the city’s bubble ordinance would survive scrutiny. Speaking to the city’s eight-foot buffer, the court ruled, “Conversation is easily possible at this distance.” Calonne suggested that if the council wished to be on the safe side, it could amend its ordinance further. Although protest activity in front of Planned Parenthood still takes place, the demonstrators are quiet and polite, and police can’t remember the last ■ time they had to issue a citation.

Supes Support Gun Bill

A

BY LY Z H O F F M A N ssemblymember Das Williams’s gun-violence restraining-order bill, AB , earned the support of four of the supervisors on Tuesday. The measure — introduced five days after the Isla Vista murders — would enable family members to seek temporary restrictions on gun ownership and purchases if they provide enough evidence that their loved one (spouse, partner, parent, child, or even roommate) poses a danger to himself or herself or others. The law, which passed the State Assembly by an overwhelming majority and will head to the State Senate floor soon, would leave the decision up to a judge and would allow the person in question to challenge the order. If granted, the restraining order would last 14 days but could be extended for up to a year. Those who violate their order would have their ban extended to five years and would face misdemeanor charges; such charges would also apply to those who make false reports. District Attorney Joyce Dudley said she backs the bill — district attorneys would be notified of all orders in their county — and encouraged the supervisors to do the same. In a somewhat

surprising move, Supervisor Peter Adam — a registered gun owner himself — added his name to the list of supporters. He said the bill made him “queasy” (he questioned the discretion of the judges, noting his sour history with civil lawsuits) but said, with some “trepidation,” he would back it. “I’m not sure this would have prevented the incident in Isla Vista,” he continued, not wanting to comment further until the Sheriff ’s Office’s investigation into the rampage concludes. Supervisor Doreen Farr, whose district includes Isla Vista, said the bill could help parents whose mentally ill children are over 18. “This is very straightforward,” she said. “Clearly there’s a gap here that needs to be filled.” Supervisor Janet Wolf said the bill would allow family members to “take a difficult step when they feel that step is necessary to protect their loved one or the public.” Declining to take a position, Supervisor Steve Lavagnino based his abstention on concerns about how the board would deal with changes to the bill and how law enforcement would deal with the “inherently dangerous” task of taking someone’s guns away.

Big Shoe Falls

STEPPING DOWN: City Hall Chief Jim Armstrong announced he’ll be retiring after 14 years at the helm, leaving some notably large shoes to fill.

With Armstrong’s Retirement, Leadership Makeover Almost Complete at City Hall

J

BY N I C K W E L S H im Armstrong, the chief executive who for the past 14 years kept the City of Santa Barbara’s oars firmly in the water while simultaneously keeping City Hall from running off the rails economically and politically, has announced he will retire three months hence. Armstrong’s announcement — which did not come as a surprise — brings to a conclusion the major leadership transformation sweeping City Hall in the past half year with the key exception of the chief of police. Chief Cam Sanchez has indicated he has no intention of doing anything but staying put. Armstrong was hired in September 2001 just before / and quickly found himself forced to weather the subsequent economic crash — as well as the dot-com implosion — it sparked. That turbulence, however, was nothing compared to the Great Recession of 2007, during which Armstrong put City Hall on a steady and early diet of budget cuts and service reductions. Although 100 positions were lost, only one person, Armstrong said, actually lost their job, a fact in which he still takes great pride. At the same time, Armstrong found himself at the helm when the California Supreme Court abolished all redevelopment agencies throughout the state. This eliminated one of City Hall’s traditional funding sources for downtown revitalization, not to mention affordable housing. Afterward, when the state appeared poised to seize possession of the many parking lots and garages built over the years with redevelopment dollars, Armstrong teamed up with Mayor Helene Schneider to wage a successful lobbying campaign in Sacramento so that City Hall retained ownership and control. When Armstrong started, the City Council was dominated by a liberal Democratic majority with strong activist inclinations. Five years ago, a Texas real estate billionaire with area ties spent nearly a million dollars to elect a conservative council majority, and for one year, he managed to achieve just that. Since then, moderate and liberal Democrats have managed to secure their traditional advantage, but only just barely. With the council in relative balance, both sides struggled over a years-long effort to rewrite the city’s general plan in hopes of promoting the mutually exclusive goals of neighborhood preservation and affordable housing. Throughout it all, Arm-

strong exerted a powerful behind-the-scenes presence. In person, he proved far more congenial and approachable than his predecessors, but when it came to policy, he proved far more restrained. That, he stressed, was the domain of council. Still, in ways large and small, his influence has been profound. It was Armstrong, for example, who single-handedly wielded the authority needed to approve major changes to the plans for the long-festering La Entrada project. And it was Armstrong who crow-barred major contract concessions from the public-safety unions so that police and firefighters now pay significantly more into their retirement accounts than they had before. Through the years, Armstrong and the Police Officers Association have waged war in public, with Armstrong holding the line on hiring more cops and citing the $150,000 a year it costs to field one position. The union, in turn, has been quick to accuse Armstrong of putting the public’s safety at risk and exaggerating the city’s fiscal distress to keep from hiring more officers. That battle, a City Hall perennial, shows little sign of abating. Two weeks ago, the council appeared ready to spend $150,000 to hire multiple rent-acops to patrol State Street. Such an expenditure would be a first for City Hall and could not have gotten so far without Armstrong’s tacit support. Armstrong expressed satisfaction in getting a new airport terminal built, the Carrillo Recreation Center rebuilt, and the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center on track for a major face-lift. He expressed regret he didn’t accomplish more in making infrastructure replacement a greater priority and securing a new funding source for such projects, like building a new police headquarters. But with State Street crawling with shoppers, City Hall’s finances are much improved. After promoting or hiring new leaders for key city departments, Armstrong said, he felt it was time he made his exit. He won’t miss the bruising labor negotiations, the “crazies” who testify before the City Council, or the inordinately long time it takes to get anything done. But, Armstrong said, he will miss the people and he will miss the mission. “It’s time,” he explained. “I’ve been working at least 20 hours a week since I was 14. I’ve been a city manager since I was 29.”

In writing for the court’s 5-4 majority, Alito explained why the Hobby Lobby, a closely held corporation with 500 outlets and 13,000 employees, does not have to comply with the federal health-reform law requiring it provide its female workers insurance packages that include 20 contraceptive options, because so doing would offend the company’s religious beliefs. Four of the 20 contraceptives effectively prevent fertilized eggs from implanting themselves into the uterine wall, thus stopping an unintended pregnancy before it starts. Hobby Lobby — believing life begins at conception — regards this as murder to which it will not be an accomplice. Okay, it’s a debatable point, but in the unholy legislative fracas out of which the Affordable Care Act emerged, church-owned businesses and religiously based nonprofits were allowed to opt out of this contraceptive requirement. At issue in the Hobby Lobby case was whether “closely held” (meaning 50 percent of the shares

angry poodle barbecue

Ain’t No Slur to Be a Cur are owned by five people or fewer) for-profit corporations could, too. The answer, according to Alito, is resoundingly yes. That’s because, he explained, corporations are people, too, at least when it comes to freely expressing their religious beliefs without undue government burden. In this case, Alito found, it would be less burdensome on Hobby Lobby if the federal government simply picked up the tab for getting Hobby Lobby employees the four contraceptive options — morning-after pills and IUDs — in question. Sweet deal, right? But this goes way beyond court-sanctioned corporate welfare. Without indulging in all the usual anti-corporate blather, you have to ask yourself — as Alito failed to — does a corporation have a soul, and can it go to hell? If it can’t be damned to an eternity of hellfire and perdition, then it obviously can’t qualify as a “person.” Let’s face it: The threat of eternal damnation is the functional core of all Western religion. It’s what keeps us from killing each other willy-nilly. Do the Ten Commandments say, “Thou Shall Not Covet Thy Corporation’s Wife?” Once you strip away all the cool myths and wispy parables, religion is all about judgment, accountability, and consequences. You screw up, you get caught, you pay. Corporations, however, were invented to do just the opposite. Corporations are fictitious legal entities created to shield individual officers from personal responsibility or liability for corporate mistakes and misdeeds. In contrast to organized religion’s threat of life without possibility of parole, the corporation remains the ultimate get-out-of-jail card.

Alito’s slick genius was to seize on some hippie-dippie, feel-good act passed unanimously by Congress in 1993 in response to bipartisan public outrage when a couple of Native American drug counselors from Oregon got fired for taking peyote as part of a spiritual ceremony. When they were subsequently denied unemployment, they took their beef to court. In 1990, the Supreme Court told them to pound sand. That’s when Congress rewrote the law to say what it thought it already said, namely that government shall not impose an undue burden on a person’s expression of religious belief unless a compelling public benefit requires it. Even then, the act mandates government must take pains to find the least restrictive intrusion. Nowhere in the legislative history did anyone contemplate that “person” meant anything other than a single, individual, flesh-and-blood human being. But Alito looked up the word “person” in the Dictionary Act, adopted by Congress in 1871 to define all the key words used in making laws, and discovered that corporations could be inferred from the word person. Of the five courts that heard this case first, three found this interpretation made no sense. If corporations are people, one wonders if and when the Supreme Court will ever make the same finding on behalf of women. It would be a nice gesture. And it’s a big deal. It turns out the vast majority of all corporations — 80-90 percent — are “closely held.” They account for 52 percent of the nation’s workforce. What’s to stop these corporations from citing some sincerely held religious belief and opting out, too?

Who gets screwed? The millions of women — who on average pay 68 percent more in outof-pocket expenses on health care than men — who the Affordable Care Act was supposed to cover. The taxpayers, who, under Alito’s scenario, could be forced to pick up the tab. And why stop at those four forms of contraception? What about the other 16? Or what about blood transfusions, morally opposed by Jehovah’s Witnesses? Antidepressants — opposed by Scientologists? Or any number of medications and medical devices made with pig byproducts, anathema to Muslims? What about Amish objections to Social Security? What about the chain of Piggie Park barbecues in South Carolina, whose owner cited deeply held religious reasons for refusing to serve black people? Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg asked just these questions in her scorching dissent. She described Alito’s decision as a “minefield.” He didn’t just open the door to such litigation; he blew up the house. Alito repeatedly asserted his ruling applied narrowly to only the facts at hand, but clever lawyers like him are much better at getting the toothpaste out of the tube than getting it back in. Alito, it also turns out, has developed the reputation for being the rudest member of the court. Or maybe he just doesn’t like Ginsburg. During a recent case, Alito rolled his eyes so everyone could see as Ginsburg read her dissenting opinion out loud. Manners, it seems, are something else Alito never managed to learn. At my Catholic school, we’d have taught — Nick Welsh him.

ast week’s “The Anatomy of Cyclic Steaming” article failed to mention the vast quantities of highly polluted water that comes back up with the oil, contaminated with boron, lead, arsenic, radioactive materials, carcinogens like benzene, and other substances. Similarly polluted water killed almond orchards in Kern County, garnering an $8 million settlement for the farmer from AERA, one of the companies applying for steam injection wells in Santa Barbara County. With issues like fracking’s — heavy water use, toxic wastewater, possible aquifer contamination, health impacts, the blight of derricks, engines, tanks — steam injection also brings concern for seeps, leaks, explosions, and huge greenhouse-gas emissions. Oil employs less than one percent of the county workforce. The projected increase in extreme extraction puts the other 99 percent of our economy at risk since it negatively impacts our major industries of agriculture, tourism, wine, and tech. It also drives down property values and property tax revenue. In other places, people have

et’s face the fact there is no fracking in Santa Barbara County. This initiative is a distraction, a ploy to stop oil production. The loss of those tax dollars, $16 million–plus, is going to come out of the already distressed taxpayer’s pocket.

The tax revenue would reimburse local governments for the costs incurred from mass murders and gang violence (ambulances, emergency rooms, crime scene investigators, nurses, coroners, social workers, rehabilitation for victims). It would create funding for gun-safety education, mental-health services, reduction of gang member aggression. The tax should be only on ammunition; it’s not a threat to gun ownership; it would not violate the Second Amendment; it should not trigger the resistance we’ve seen to even the most reasonable gun-control measures.

John Eugene Gerngross // – //

John Eugene Gerngross, 90, passed away peacefully on June 26, 2014 at his home in Santa Barbara. Born on February 1, 1924 in Laurel Springs, NJ, John was the fourth of five children of George Gerngross and Anna Dursch. John was the first in his family to go to college and through a combination of hard work, careful money management and a football scholarship, he attended freshman year at the University of New Hampshire in 1942 and undertook an engineering curriculum. As World War II expanded, John signed up for the Army Reserve Corps that December and served until March 1946. During his service time he took advantage of the Army’s college education program and studied Electrical Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute (now Virginia Tech). It was here that he met his wife Eileen and they were married in 1948. John graduated with an EE degree in 1946 and then went on to obtain a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago in 1951. John started his career at General Electric Company in Schenectady, NY in 1951 working on large steam turbine plants used to generate electricity. It was here that his children John and Joanna were born. John’s career took the family back and forth across the U.S., living and working in New York, Washington DC, Maryland, California and Massachusetts. He worked for several major aerospace companies, eventually retiring from the Raytheon Company in 1981. He worked on a number of important defense programs which took him to Europe many times. During the height of the Cold War he made a presentation to NATO about the defense of its members. After retirement, John and Eileen sold their house, purchased a sailboat and took off on a sailing adventure that lasted six years and took them thousands of miles up and down the East Coast and throughout the Bahamas. They had many fun adventures, lots of family visits and the occasional scary moment and it was a special time in their lives. After their time on the boat they moved to California in 1989. His grandchildren started arriving then and he was devoted to them. Soon after, John Jr. started Condor Engineering and John Sr. came out of retirement to be his first, best and most devoted employee. John Sr. was instrumental in the success of the company and it was a special time for father and son to be able to work together for so many years until John’s second retirement in 2003. John’s hobbies included photography, ham radio, hiking and bicycling. He enjoyed going to Switzerland to see his daughter, granddaughters and extended 20

family. John is survived by his loving family including his wife of 66 years, Eileen; his children John (Cheryl Doty) of Santa Barbara; Joanna (Joe) Hediger of Ibach, Switzerland; grandchildren Emily Gerngross, Lilian Dutoit, Anna Gerngross, and Melanie Dutoit; step-grandson Austin Gibson. John will be sorely missed by all. He touched many people with his kindness, thoughtfulness and leadership. He was always tuned into the issues of the world and the latest technologies and enjoyed discussing them. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather who always looked after his family. His devotion, kindness and courage are an inspiration for us all. A memorial service will be held in the Theater Room at 900 Calle de Los Amigos on July 5 at 3 PM. Memorial donations may be made to the Valle Verde Scholarship Fund through the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.

The passing of Laura Rowan Peake on Friday, June 27th, was noted with great sadness by those that had the luck or the blessing to be touched by the goodness and gravitas of this remarkable woman. Born July 9th, 1941 in Pasadena, CA to the late Robert A. Rowan and Louise Hunter. Laura is survived by her four sons, Graham, Ziggy, Craig, Jaime and her daughter Satya. A resident of Montecito for over 45 years, Laura moved to Carpinteria, close to Sandyland Cove, where she spent time as a child, after her home was consumed in the 2008 Tea Fire. Laura was a familiar face in the Santa Barbara community with her many children, grandchildren, dogs and wide range of close friendships. The recurrent theme of Laura’s life was of passion, refinement, kindness, humor, joy, tolerance, generosity and lack of pretense. Laura will be missed greatly by the community and her family, but her unique spirit and memory will never be forgotten by those that were blessed to know her. Memorial Services will be held on July 12th at 2:00 pm at the Vedanta Society in Montecito located at 927 Ladera Ln, Santa Barbara, CA 93108.

great-grandmother, aunt and friend to many, Lois had a generous spirit and unparalleled tenacity. She was a storyteller, avid reader, Bingo enthusiast and armchair Wheel of Fortune champion but her heart always belonged to her family and friends. Lois’ commitment to those she loved knew no boundaries; she was the first person everyone turned to for advice, help or support without judgment. Lois was a constant source of strength and warm hugs in both our happiest and darkest days. As her husband, Arthur, said at the time of her death,“She gave to everyone without any questions and never asked for anything in return, even if that meant that she had to go without.” She will be missed dearly by all who knew her. Lois is preceded in death by her brother, Raymond Borges, and grandson, David Montanes, Jr. She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Arthur Montanes of Carpinteria, and sons Robert “Bobby” and David Montanes both of Carpinteria, grandchildren Erin (Drew) Milan of Oakland, CA, Shannon Montanes and Tori Montanes of Santa Barbara and great-grandchildren Christopher and Zachary Milan of Oakland, CA. Lois was also “Auntie” to many nephews and nieces and their families including Gilbert (Esther) Contreras of Lompoc, Lynda (John) Iniguez of Goleta, Kathy (Abel) Medel of Oxnard, Laurie (Martin) Cabrera of Goleta and Michael (Becky) Sanchez of Goleta. A memorial service celebrating Lois’ life will be held at 10am on Monday, July 7, 2014 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Santa Barbara.

Eyewitness to Beatlemania

Cockney journo in San Francisco in 1964 when his London editor called: Cover the Beatles’ first U.S. tour and stick to them like glue, day and night. The 34-day, 27-city trip became “one of the craziest adventures of my life,” Davis, now a Ventura resident, recalls in his new book, The Beatles and Me, on Tour, to be published on July 15. “I was there when they popped pills … moaned about the lousy sound systems and the crappy merchandise sold at stadiums, about their fear of flying and how they coped with the revolving door of women of all shapes, sizes, and ages that came calling.” When the jet-lagged lads arrived at the San Francisco Hilton on August 18, 1964, Davis, who had never attended a rock concert, found them virtual prisoners on the 15th floor. “The hotel was under siege. Thousands of people, most of them young girls, and most of them with their teeth encased in metal braces, had surrounded the hotel and were screaming in the wildest mass hysteria I had ever seen (or have seen since).” Davis, stunned, was greeted by the foursome’s PR man, Derek Taylor. “Welcome to Beatlemania.” Taylor promptly poured Davis a shot of whiskey. “You’ll need it.” The Cow Palace concert was scheduled that night, and the boys were just waking up.

Even from that high you could hear the constant screaming. “Is it always like this?” Davis asked Taylor, who just smiled.“It’s bloody mad,” said John Lennon.“They’ll all die of laryngitis.” At the Cow Palace, the Beatles launched into “Twist and Shout.” But who could tell? “All around me, girls, some holding binoculars, began what I can only describe as a marathon of unending shrieks,” Davis said.“They jumped out of their seats, their bodies shook and shuddered and became so contorted that it seemed they were in the throes of serious epileptic fits or had been possessed by demons.” In 29 minutes, the concert was over.“Twelve songs, express delivery: Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. The second they finished their final number, ‘Long Tall Sally,’ they dropped their instruments and raced offstage.” With their limos draped with girls,“attached to the doors like mindless, human limpets in a horror movie,” the Beatles leaped into a decoy ambulance and raced off. Nineteen girls required first aid, 50 fans were hurt in scuffles with police, and two were arrested. Police tackled 50 more fans who tried to invade the stage. And it was pretty much like this for what Davis calls “five weeks of frenzy.” The mildmannered Cockney had a ticket to ride in the Beatles’ private jet as the boozy entourage cruised America. From Las Vegas, where Liberace insisted

SIZZLING SUMMER

Y Z RA

BBQ CONTEST

J

UST so you know we take the Sizzling Summer BBQ Contest seriously, we ended up with 14 judges for just 12 contestants this year. Of course, there was plenty of regular hedonistic fun to be had on June 26, when our now-usual, multiculti, multi-tasty food extravaganza party popped up at Oak Park. But the annual event, with 2014 being the fifth such incarnation, is really fueled by the passion and pride of our grillers. Judge Mike Cohen, owner of the Santa Barbara Adventure Company, put it best. “I was impressed with the level of dedication and hard work that the chefs put into their

creations,” said Cohen.“To try so hard to make such delicious food shows a passion and commitment to BBQ that BY is commendable. Cooking GEORGE up all that love and bringYATCHISIN ing it to the people would make any local proud. All the dishes I tasted could hold their own in a national competition.” There’s evidence to support that assessment, too, as some of our contestants have gone on to cook on the Food Network and NBC’s Today show and win Los Angeles Times’ burger contests. And we’re proud to see growth, too, such as how last year’s ama-

teur winner, Gabriel Ibarra Jr., returned this year with restaurant experience under his belt to PHOTOS BY enter the professional PAUL bracket, an evolution WELLMAN that’s also happened in the past. All the judges made it clear their job, while tasty, was far from easy, and that crystallized when we had a tie in one of the two amateur heats and ended up sending three contestants onto the final round, not just two. When the smoke cleared, these folks and their dishes emerged victorious.

PRO BBQ PLATE WINNER:

EDIE ROBERTSON Roasted-local-organic-coffee-, cumin-, and smoked-paprika-rubbed marinated filet mignon with a flame-roasted red bell pepper harissa plus pork belly medallion

made a great food marriage, and the ‘richer or poorer’ vow popped into my head,” she explained.“The twist was just to make it foodie friendly. I can definitely get deeper into a socialeconomic analysis about it … but I won’t!” She also has advice for those eager to get charcoal smudged at home: “Have fun and don’t be intimidated by the grill. I think anything can taste better licked by the fire. Failures are part of the learning curve so embrace them, as well. Try to re-create things you have had and enjoyed and put your own twist on them. Happy BBQing!”

It’s getting to the point we might just name this the Edie Robertson BBQ Contest and be done with it — she’s won the professional meaty plate twice now, judged once, and won the pro-am veggie twice. In fact, we killed that latter category this year due to lack of entrants, and we believe it may be because other wouldbe veggie grillers didn’t sign up out of sheer fear. Robertson certainly shows no fear, which isn’t surprising given an almost comically wide-ranging résumé that includes the “jobs” of executive chef/co-owner of the Sojourner Café for 10 years, world champion skateboarder, and lead vocalist of the first American rock band to tour China.“My brain is always ticking, a blessing and a curse!” said Robertson of how she keeps developing exciting winning dishes. “There are always things to learn — new foods to experience, manipulate, and experiment with. You never stop learning and growing in the culinary arena. And sometimes don’t overthink things; keep it simple, and let the great original product sing.” The song her plate sung this year was cleverly billed “For Richer or Porker.”“It was basically the fact that the cost of the filet was four times that of the pork belly, and together they

PRO BBQ PLATE RUNNER-UP:

STEVEN GILES OF SAGE & ONION

Cider-glazed St. Louis spareribs, with smoked jalapeño cheddar grits and charred romaine with smoked heirloom tomatoes and Point Reyes blue cheese vinaigrette Those who remember the old Sage & Onion downtown for dreamy soufflés and other classic dishes might be surprised to hear that British-born owner Steven Giles, whose latest restaurant is in Goleta, is “in love with the art of true BBQ,” by which he means the “low and slow style” embraced throughout the American South as compared to the fast and highheat grilling most common in California.“At the risk of being BBQ snobby, cooking outside over a grill and calling it barbecuing is like getting grapes, crushing them, putting juice into bottles, and calling yourself a winemaker,” said Giles.“It oversimplifies the craft.” So he’s been studying the process of “transforming an otherwise tough piece of meat into buttery, meaty submission, using the slow, gradual breakdown of its own fat, tendon, and bones and retaining moisture which infuses the meat with flavor.” For this contest, he went with St. Louis spareribs due to the great fat marbling, which he said is “perfect for a slow roast over a low, wood-fired flame.” Now that the Sage & Onion Café has been open in Goleta for a year and a half, Giles and company have been perfecting their ’cue. “We are excited to share one of our favorite family dishes,” he said about the recipe available online, which he cooked on a Traeger wood-pellet-fired smoker BBQ.“It’s like getting to BBQ with the flavor/heat of charcoal but with the convenience of propane. It’s my favorite new chef gadget.” Ever the purist, Giles is just the latest to take a swipe at our tradition of calling the contest a BBQ contest rather than the more technically correct “grilling” event that it is.“Why not call it ‘Outdoor Eating Contest at Oak Park’ and we’ll bring sous vide lobster with shallots and truffled Irish butter?” he asked.“That might win every time.” AMATEUR BBQ PLATE WINNER:

DOMENIC CEASER Home-smoked beef brisket and baked beans with bacon, green onion, and jalapeño cornbread and s’more-tillas

That Domenic Ceaser pulled out the victory with an inspired plate that began with smoked brisket and ended with his own invention, the “s’more-tilla” (more on that in a bit), isn’t a surprise when he starts talking about his creativity.“Music is something that I enjoy in most every form,” he explained.“Making an analogy from that standpoint, I say let your plate be the stage and the food your own distinct harmony. Whether that harmony sounds like RimskyKorsakov’s Scheherazade or ‘Sheena Is a Punk Rocker’ by the Ramones doesn’t matter if it comes from the heart and is shared with love.” While he’s cooked for 38 years for family and friends, he admits that nerves can get the best of him. “When I auditioned for MasterChef last November, I was a basket case,” he said of his first foray into competitive food.“I was literally shaking when I was plating my dish.” That experience prepared Ceaser for our contest.“While I was definitely less nervous, I was still an OCD control freak,” he said of last week. “Even then, I still forgot stuff and had to text my wife to bring it.” Ceaser’s s’more-tillas were born from a moment of camping insight, and now they even have their own Facebook and Twitter accounts. You can even text “smore” to 38470 to receive a coupon to get five of them for just $5 at his next public event, so Ceaser clearly gets the marketing side of food, as well. As for grilling advice, he suggests thinking ahead.“A little time spent thinking about my menu and planning saves me a lot of embarrassment,” he said.“Know your ingredients, then mise en place, mise en place, and more mise en place. Did I mention mise en place?”

L.J. WASHINGTON

Asian Mandarin orange BBQ pork loin ribs; sweet apple-smoked pork chili with sour cream, diced apples, onions, and cilantro; grilled avocados; and Creole pecan pralines L.J. Washington is no stranger to the heat of culinary battle. She prevailed at the 2012 Santa Barbara Independent Sandwich Showdown, the 2012 KEYT Backyard BBQ, and the 2014 Carpinteria Chili Cookoff. Washington was also a finalist in this contest back in 2012, the Today show’s Father’s Day Burger Battle in June 2013, and the 2013 World Food Championships in Las Vegas. An ICU nurse at Cottage Hospital, Washington is originally from New Orleans, explaining, “Talking about my hometown, sharing its history and food to others, gets me on a culinary high.” This year, she added Creole pecan pralines to her dish of Asian-inspired ribs as homage to her hometown. “The Independent’s BBQ contest is one of my favorites to do,” said Washington.“The competition atmosphere is supportive and very positive. You can get great feedback about your dish from competitors, attendees, judges, sponsors, and more. It’s a great time with others who love great BBQ. You never know, someone there may love your dish so much that they offer to make your culinary dreams a reality.”

Proudly Introducing...

DAVID MOORMAN

Dry-rubbed savory chicken wings with homemade harissa and grilled green onions tossed in balsamic vinegar and pimentos and habanero-jelly-glazed pork loin; dry-rubbed baby back ribs; fried rice with peas, carrots, onions, celery, and bacon; cornbread with organic honey butter; and grilled peaches and nectarines topped with cardamom-infused crème fraîche and crumbled ginger snaps David Moorman took things to NASCAR levels, getting his own sponsors (Whole Foods Market and LighterBro) for his elaborate entry. “My inspiration to participate was simple,” he said. “I was a guest judge in the 4th annual BBQ cook-off, I love to grill, and I committed to submitting an entry at the end of last year’s contest!” Having so many moving parts in his complex plate, he admitted to being most concerned about “the art of timing.” He explained, “I’m selftaught in the kitchen and over the grill, so it’s key to know the cooking times for any given dish.” His boneless pork loin, for instance, weighed twice as much as the baby back ribs, but the loin cooked in half the time. Good ingredients are key, too.“I used organic local ingredients where possible,” he explained, “and the highest quality meats from the butcher case at Whole Foods Market.” Moorman also has some specific advice for home grillers that makes his own obsession clear: “Unless you are grilling a steak or burgers, most meat with bones in them benefit from being cooked over indirect heat.” He brought two grills to the contest, one for direct heat, one for indirect, and also used a water dish in the indirect grill to “infuse moisture.” CONTINUED >>>

Aviation Scholarship for Women

Trivia

Which saint is known for slaying a dragon? ❏ George ❏ Christopher ❏ Francis Which nation’s flag has a red dragon as its symbol? ❏ Iceland ❏ Wales ❏ Belgium Smaug is the name of the dragon in which book? ❏ Game of Thrones ❏ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ❏ The Hobbit answers: . George; . Wales; . The Hobbit.

Amelia Earhart may be best remembered for her solo flight across the Atlantic — and her mysterious disappearance — but the pioneering pilot contributed many things to aviation. In 1929, she was one of the founding members of the Ninety-Nines, an organization founded to support the advancement of women pilots. The group still functions today with a global membership of more than 5,000 women from more than 30 countries. The Santa Barbara chapter is doing its part to support female pilots and recently announced the C.J. Strawn Aviation Scholarship for Women in honor of California pilot Cheryl Strawn, who perished in a midair collision in 2013. Applicants must be 16 years or older, live in California, and have a desire to be a pilot or airplane mechanic. The winner will receive $2,000, which will go to help defray the costs of flight or mechanic school. Applications are due by July 15. For more information, call Lynn Houston at 698-6784 or email her at Cherub007@cox.net. For more on the Ninety-Nines, visit ninety-nines.org. — Michelle Drown

Santa Barbara’s intense concentration of nonprofit organizations rivals even our staggering tally of restaurants, but since the recession-related closure of the 15-year-old Nonprofit Support Center in 2011, the charity community has been lacking a collective center of gravity. That’s no longer the case, as the Santa Barbara Nonprofit Resource Network is now filling that void, and doing so almost entirely digitally, through the recently relaunched website nprnsb.org. “We’re trying to fill a gap that’s very specific to the nonprofit community,” explained David Fortson, a longtime area nonprofit player whose LoaTree consulting firm designed the site for the Hutton Parker Foundation and the handful of other foundations now funding this initiative. “It’s a two-way communication system between people who want to learn and people who want to share.” And evolving daily, as Pamela Lewis, the network’s director and also head of the Hutton Parker Foundation, said, “We’re constantly asking our members, ‘What information do you want?’” The clean interface — which is open to anyone with an interest in nonprofits and now boasts about 500 registered members with nearly 100 more signing up per month — is a familiar social-media-like feed that blends daily curated job postings, news articles, press releases, and educational pieces from respected nonprofit think tanks like the Stanford Social Innovation Review. There’s also an AskElla function, which is like Google for charities; a weekly email blast to 2,300 people; and, exclusive to this site, ticket sales for the annual Partnership for Excellence Conference and the ability to reserve the Cornerstone Community Room in Santa Maria. The website, said Fortson, who believes other communities may also benefit from such a site, helps organizations learn “how to be a better nonprofit and what the trend lines are in the nonprofit community.” — Matt Kettmann See nprnsb.org.

he world’s oceans are full of noise caused by huge container ships ferrying goods from distant ports, oil and gas exploration platforms, commercial fishing boats, cruise ships, and jet skis. Another source of noise, albeit less well known, is military sonar, used by navies as a primary tool in antisubmarine warfare. Not surprisingly, the United States Navy leads the world in the deployment and use of sonar. The problem with high-intensity military sonar is that it can pose a mortal threat to marine mammals like whales and dolphins, disrupting their ability to hunt, mate, and navigate. Nearly a decade and a half ago, on March 15, 2000, more than a dozen whales beached themselves on Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas. The whales were a species of deep-diving beaked whales that live in the dark depths of Great Bahama Canyon. Miracles of evolution, beaked whales are known to descend to depths of more than 5,000 feet and remain submerged for more than an hour. What caused these whales to strand themselves in the shallows is the key question in War of the Whales by Joshua Horwitz. The explanation takes the reader on a page-turning ride from the Bahamas to the Pentagon and the highest echelons of the United States Navy, through a concise history of sonar and how it was used to track Soviet submarines during the Cold War, into marine research labs (many funded by the navy), through the halls and conference rooms of government agencies tasked with protecting marine mammals, and finally to the Supreme Court of the United States and a David-versus-Goliath battle between the National Resources Defense Council and the United States Navy. Deftly weaving these elements together — along with portraits of the two men at the heart of the story, marine biologist Ken Balcomb and environmental lawyer Joel Reynolds — Horwitz tells a taut, energetic story that feels immediate, even though the events are nearly a decade old. War of the Whales is a reminder — and a warning — that our technological, industrial, and military prowess produces unintended consequences for other species with which we share this fragile planet. — Brian Tanguay

BODY TALK: AcroYoga’s Nicholas Coolridge (pictured lying down) was part of this year’s Solstice Parade.

New Fitness Form Combines Acrobatics and Yoga

I

’m extremely fascinated by anything that’s kinda out of the

ordinary, things that people don’t generally do,” said Nicholas Coolridge, an acrobat and enthusiast of all hobbies deviating from the beaten path. Now he is helping Santa Barbarans indulge their sense of adventure and desire for innovative exercises with lessons in the art of AcroYoga. As the name suggests, the twoperson activity combines acrobatics and yoga to strengthen coordination, balance, and teamwork. Although Coolridge only became an AcroYoga practitioner three years ago, he has engaged in similar activities since he was a small boy. “I’ve been an acrobat my entire life,” Coolridge said. “I grew up nicknamed Monkey Boy and Tarzan; I learned how to do handstands at 5 years old with my dad.” His passion for tumbling began with boyhood gymnastics classes and has evolved to the more freeform arts of parkour (a training form born from military obstacle courses) and freerunning (a martial-arts-based discipline inspired by parkour), which better suit Coolridge’s spontaneity and creativity. His adventurous spirit finds outlets in other daring outdoors sports such as hang gliding, paragliding, biking, rock climbing, trekking, exploring, and even wilderness-survival adventures with groups of friends. Although he still enjoys the high-impact nature of parkour and freerunning, with their focus on high-intensity jumps and flips, he has turned to AcroYoga for the gentleness of the poses as well as the thrilling experience of weightlessness that the positions allow. “I can see this being something that I can do for the rest of my life,” he said. “It’s such a smooth, coordinating thing; there’s just no impact involved in most of the moves, and it’s relatively safe.” Coolridge emphasizes the universal appeal that comes with the safety of AcroYoga as well as the surprisingly small amounts of strength and flexibility needed for the basic moves. “You can pretty

much do it with anyone; I mean, I’ve done it with my grandma,” he added. The experience of AcroYoga is different than any other form of yoga due to many of the poses that involve lifting or being lifted by a partner. “It brings back that childhood feeling of the airplane game, feeling light and that flying feeling of going up on the parent’s feet and being tossed around by mom and dad.” This also adds the element of teamwork and trust between partners, another aspect of the activity that Coolridge enjoys immensely. Coolridge participated in this year’s Summer Solstice parade, collaborating with artist Pali-X-Mano to perform an acrobatic act involving Pali’s famous inflatable floats. “Creating a unique performance for what we’re placed in is what I love the most,” Coolridge said.

Ms. Roshell Goes to Washington

G

rowing up in Tinsel Town, a gal gets jaded. Look, it can’t be helped. From before I could say “actors’ equity,” we lived directly beneath the glowing Hollywood sign. My folks were in “the industry” and hobnobbed with rock stars, deejays, and TV personalities. And by hobnobbed, of course, I mean got high and listened to album-oriented rock. When you’ve watched soap-opera dreamboats flubbing their lines take after take, seen pop divas climbing into the makeup chair nakedfaced and scowling, and heard Billboard chart-busters stinking up a sound check that should have ended hours ago — well, there’s little room left in your life for magic. (I once saw Dick Clark in his underwear, and it wasn’t even New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.) All this to say that I grew up nearly incapable of reverence. Numbish to wonderment. And altogether apathetic toward the things that, as Americans, we’re supposed to venerate. Things like Thanksgiving, Walt Disney, the game of baseball, apple pie, railroad museums, and “our nation’s capital.” Feh. Like Michigan, Alabama, and South Dakota, the District of Columbia isn’t somewhere I’d ever considered visiting. In fact, until this very month, I sort of believed “our nation’s capital” wasn’t a geographic reality so much as a vague by Starshine mythical ideal like “nirvana” or “kingdom come”— you know, a literary conceit that helps establish tone and timbre when you’re waxin’ flashy in a tale about email: starshine@roshell.com politics. Or House of Cards. But my husband has family in Virginia, so we visited the area. And it turns out Californians aren’t allowed to touch down in the Mother of Presidents without making a pilgrimage to D.C. Now, I’d like to tell you that this world-weary, TV-town brat was moved by Washington’s grandiose monuments and bombastic architecture. But the fact is I wasn’t moved. I was positively wobbly with awe. From the moment you roll off Memorial Avenue Bridge onto the lush landscape where our country’s leaders plot (and, okay, plod), it’s clear this ain’t Anytown, U.S.A. This is Rome-on-the-Potomac, my friends. And shizz just got real. In embarrassing contrast to the geometric hodgepodge of a Hollywood skyline — all Grauman’s-Chinese-Cinerama-Dome-CapitolRecords craggy — D.C. is an artful labyrinth of imposing neoclassical edifices that, I won’t lie, made me and my SoCal sensibilities feel like a Ninny in King Barack’s Court. Everything feels so important there. This is not the White House of The West Wing; it’s the West Wing of the White House, by George! In my hometown, a stroll down the Walk of Fame sends you gliding over sparkly pink stars bearing the names and trades of entertainment luminaries. In Washington — on foot, in lung-smothering heat and humidity — I took a Walk of Gravity: from the Old Supreme Court Chamber in the Capitol building where John Quincy Adams argued the Amistad case; along the National Mall to the sacred spot — at the foot of avuncular, colossal Abe in the Lincoln Memorial — where Dr. King announced he had a dream; around to the immense, inspiring Jefferson Memorial, inscribed with Tom’s warning that laws must change as the human mind becomes “more developed, more enlightened” (I’m looking at you, Second Amendment); then over to the National Archives, where my drugstore readers and I pored over (“Ma’am, do not lean on the glass”) the original, faded, hand-scrawled, dreadfully punctuated Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. The actual ones! All in the same room, people! Countless curbside memorials to statesmen and soldiers hum with the magnitude of heroes, and of death: real heroes and real death, not the Oscar-nominated kind. And of principles. Nation-building principles with global reach and daily impact. I got chills at every street corner. So you could say my visit had a Hollywood ending: The Tinsel-Town tourist revels in her own reverence, confessing that our nation’s capital is more dazzling than the Sunset Strip. And more surprising than Dick Clark in his underwear. Happy birthday, America.

Shah, who now splits her time between Goleta and Italy, will be showing off a few of these products on July 5 at the Foragers Pantry inside of the Santa Barbara Public Market. Here’s a sneak peek at what to expect:

Spelt Farro: “It’s an heirloom grain that goes back 5,000 years,” said Shah of this great option instead of rice or even pasta, and it makes for a nice risotto, as well. “Most heirloom grains only go back 300 years.” Barley Coffee: “Everybody drinks it in Italy,” said Shah of this coffee alternative, which has a nuttier flavor and is often served espresso-style with a slice of lemon. “It’s great for the digestive system.” It can be a little bitter, said Shah, but her version is “really smooth.” Garbanzo Beans: Shah said her beans are healthier and tastier than most because “the cooking time is faster, so the skins stay on, and there is a higher protein content.” They make for a great hummus or as the base of their own simple salad. Tea: A line of very aromatic teas combine Shah’s PersianIndian background with ingredients such as rose hips and lavender that come from her husband’s Umbrian farm. “Tea has always been a big part of our lives,” said Shah. “Our emphasis is more on the fruit and florals and spice and less so on the tea itself.” —Matt Kettmann

1ST THURSDAY

14 GALLERY 27 AT BROOKS INSTITUTE 27 East Cota Street, 805-690-4913 Gallery 27 is proud to present the works of Grant Mudford in collaboration with the Rosamund Felsen Gallery. Mudford is a keen observer of the constructed landscape, creating playful and smart architectural photographs. He recasts space, structure and surface as formal elements in visual works of poetry. These images move beyond documentation, inviting the viewer to engage in the meticulous observation of both pedigreed and uncelebrated structures. ‘The Recast Landscape’ brings together a selection of photographs from the last 40 years of Mudford’s career, showcasing the masterful use of light and composition in a broad survey of architecture that ranges from its most aspirational to its most utilitarian.

Exhibitions on View: Left Coast: Recent Acquisitions of Contemporary Art. Since it opened its doors in 1941, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art has consistently been dedicated to collecting—an activity that has contributed to the growth of the permanent collection in significant ways. Art produced on the West Coast is a major part of this endeavor. Left Coast presents an overview of the Museum’s collecting habits in contemporary art over the past five years, focusing most heavily on artists living and working in Southern California. Featuring a variety of media, including painting, photography, works on paper, and sculpture, many of the works in the exhibition are on view for the first time. Tying these works together is the pervasive sense of individuality demonstrated in each, adding weight to the justification of the delineation of this side of the country as not just the West Coast, but also, as it’s commonly called, the “Left” Coast.

Modern Times

s far as summertime cultural innovations go, the outdoor film series joint-hosted by the Santa Barbara County Park Foundation, the County Arts Commission, the Community Services Department of S.B. County, and UCSB Arts & Lectures is easily the biggest thing since Michael Gonzales started marching up State Street on the solstice some 35 years ago.“This is our fifth year already,” said Roman Baratiak, who heeded a call from arts commissioner Ginny Brush and stuck his UCSB programming on the beautiful City Hall Sunken Gardens in 2009.“The first year we did it, remember we did the Universal monster movies, and we didn’t know if anyone would come.” No worries. Eight hundred people showed up for the first-ever screening, to hear Colin Clive as Doctor Frankenstein scream “It’s Alive! Alive!” And so was the brand-new summer tradition, which has progressively hosted in the intervening years a salute to 1930s musicals, a journey though the best of the 1950s paranoid flying-saucer and alienmonster films, and last year, against expectation, a massively attended series of films from fright auteur Alfred Hitchcock. How massive? “There were 4,000 people at some of the Hitchcock films; it was a little nervous-making,” said Baratiak, who admits readily that one reason they booked silent films was to curb the massive community

LANA DEL REY ULTRAVIOLENCE

When Lana Del Rey first burst onto the music scene in late 2011, she immediately became one of the most exciting and divisive figures in pop music. While some felt that she was formulaic and unoriginal, others claimed she was an unexpected voice for a generation fueled by apathy, loneliness, and an insatiable appetite for self-destruction. Up until now, Del Rey seemed uniquely fascinating, possibly even poised to become one of the great artists of our time. All of this and more is why her newest album, Ultraviolence, is such a disappointment. In 2014, Del Rey seems unwilling to grow, delivering a record that feels like a pale imitation of its predecessor.

response that brimmed the awe-inspiring Sunken Gardens with fans. And it wasn’t just that; the whole crazy summertime scene inspired a weekly land rush for movie-watching real estate. Since people were not allowed to reserve lawn space before 5 p.m., literally a thousand people lined up to hear a bell ring announcing a run for territory on an al fresco movie site that wouldn’t start rolling until dark, about four hours later.

Summer

Cinema Series IN THE

SUNKEN GARDEN As you might guess, Baratiak and company have mixed feelings about the crowds, which range from young millennials to boomer seniors.“These aren’t family gatherings,” cautioned Baratiak, who has been programming film and lecture events for UCSB for more than three decades.“But this is one of my favorite things I’ve ever done.”

To be clear, Ultraviolence is in no way a train wreck, and some will probably enjoy its familiar qualities. But the reason Ultraviolence fails is because it lacks the boldness and raw intensity of 2012’s masterful Born to Die. The production is still high quality, albeit a bit watered down, and her voice is still excellent; however, it’s hard not to become frustrated by the formulaic feeling of it all. There are a few moments on Ultraviolence that do feel fresh and new and serve as good reminders of what was so intoxicating about Del Rey in the first place. “West Coast” is the album’s clear standout track; it explores new territory while sounding like a song that only Del Rey could make. At her best, Del Rey has shown she can be an artist that is unafraid to explore humanity’s dark side while effortlessly putting listeners under

It would be wrong to think that silent films were merely booked to keep yahoos away. “These are great movies,” said Baratiak, who has booked movies by three of the most accomplished male comedians of the silent era: the innovator Buster Keaton (Sherlock Jr.), the everyman Harold Lloyd (Girl Shy), and the modernist genius of the era, Charlie Chaplain (Modern Times). The Chaplain films come with music that has been recorded, but four of the other films will be accompanied live by Michael Mortilla, a pianist who has been sub-specializing in accompanying silent screenings for A&L for the past decade. So it won’t be too big of a problem if you can’t get close to the speakers or if you’re next to noisy party neighbors. But Baratiak does not want people to think this was just expedient, or even some kind of attempt to promote cinematic culture.“The most amazing part of these movies is that they were made in an era before digital screen effects, but even more importantly, they are all very funny movies. And it will be totally fun to watch them with a lot of people laughing.” The Summer Cinema Series kicks off with Harold Lloyd’s The Freshman at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Friday, July 11, at 8:30 p.m. Films also screen at 7:30pm every Wednesday at UCSB’s Campbell Hall.

Five years later, she has both a BA and a master’s degree in international relations and a hot Instagram feed (instagram.com/thestreetmuseum) that’s gaining new followers every day. The Laguna Blanca grad has always been interested in photography, but it wasn’t until she began walking the apparently not-so-mean streets of Brooklyn that she found her passion: connecting people to the best and freshest things being painted in not only New York but Los Angeles, San Francisco, and even Santa Barbara. I caught up with the recent grad last week in S.B., where she was taking some time off before returning to N.Y.C. to begin work at Egon Zehnder, an international consulting firm, in the fall. “It all started when I was an undergraduate and living in Little Italy,” she explained. “I loved walking in the city, and seeing all the great work that was being done in my own neighborhood naturally led me farther and farther out into Brooklyn, where a lot of the best stuff gets done.” After several years as a contributor to larger, aggregated Instagram feeds documenting street art, she started her own in January 2014, and since then, it has taken off. How does she find the cutting-edge images that she photographs? Some of them are only up for a limited time, and all of them are in random locations. “When I went on Instagram as @thestreetmuseum, I guess people liked what they saw because they started tipping me off about new work. Although I know it is supposedly cool to post a photo but not say where you took it, I like to include the location. To me this is about making the work more available to a wider audience.” Follow Esther on Instagram @thestreetmuseum or visit her website, thestreetmuseum.wordpress.com. — Charles Donelan

n Friday, Starting Here: A Selection of Distinguished Artists from UCSB

opened its second phase at the university’s Art, Design & Architecture Museum and expanded to the College of Creative Studies Gallery, turning what was already a very strong exhibition into a not-to-be missed event. It should not be a surprise that so many important artists have come through UCSB over the years, but it is nonetheless exciting to see work by such incredibly diverse and accomplished artists. The first phase of the exhibition, which opened in May, featured work by 16 artists, including pieces by two of the most important American sculptors of the 20th century, Richard Serra and Mark di Suvero. For two artists who are known to work on epic scales, the examples on view are understandably modest, but within the gallery space they retain a feeling of the monumental. In particular, Serra’s Untitled, weighing in at 1,300 pounds, seems to forcefully dominate the space around it, while simultaneously retaining a visual elegance produced in part by the slightly out-of-square top edge. Sharing the room with di Suvero and Serra is Yoshiro Ikeda, whose oversized ceramic vessels with intricate glazes were one of the many wonderful surprises in the show; as was WTC in Four Moments by Dinh Q. Lê, which is one of the more sublimely beautiful pieces of video art that I have seen. Lê’s four-screen installation displays moments from before, during, and after the attack on the Twin Towers, as well as the buildings’ reconstruction. In each case, the image has been stretched and distorted beyond the point of recognition, giving only fleeting hints of the moments documented. For the second phase of the exhibition, SBCC instructor Nathan Hayden has transformed the lobby of the museum with his iconic black-and-white wall paintings, which have effectively transformed the space and created a wonderful juxtaposition to his series of precisely executed mini-drawings that hang inside. Hayden is one of the younger participants in this show and, in the span of a few short years in Santa Barbara, has been featured in many of our most important venues. He is currently featured in a show at L.A.’s CB Gallery and is definitely someone to keep your eye on. Other artists like Mary Heebner, Ann Diener, John Nava, Hilary Brace, Hank Pitcher, and Penelope Gottlieb, all of whom have made important contributions to our region’s visual art scene, are well represented, and it is a thrill to see them all together. The expansion of the show includes another 32 artists and takes advantage of the gallery inside the College of Creative Studies, just a short walk from the main museum, where one can find paintings by Pitcher and Leslie Wayne, sculptures by Christopher Miles, and installations by Halsey Rodman. Starting Here (on view through August 10) does a wonderful job of highlighting the rich visual art tradition at the university over the past 60 years. It is an important reminder that this tradition continues and that we should be paying close attention to those emerging artists who study here. If the work on display in this show is any indication, there is a constant stream of future distinguished artists who are certain to make their mark on the art world after ■ they leave UCSB.

L

ike the anticipation of a sunrise, the central focus of the Music Academy of the West (MAW) is always just ahead of the horizon — that is, the professional musician of tomorrow. While ensuring continuity with the past, the faculty and administration also leave windows open to the present moment: opportunities for young Summer Festival fellows to hear and meet the pros who are only a decade or two down the road. MAW patrons from 2013 will remember cellist Joshua Roman’s hip inauguration of new venues last year — curating at the Santa CRAZY EIGHTS: (TOP) eighth blackbird’s full sextet Barbara Museum of Art and indulges its rhythmic intricacies. (BELOW) Lisa performing an unforgettable Kaplan and Matthew Duvall match wits and solo set in a Funk Zone photo dance steps in “Counting Duet #4.” loft. This year, it was eighth blackbird who flew through that open window. The Chicago-based, Grammywinning contemporary classical sextet was founded in 1996 and has made a name for itself playing new music. Indeed, the two sets performed at Hahn Hall, which displayed complex rhythmic finesse and theatrical flair, consisted entirely of new wine in new bottles, with no vintage older than 1982. New music is not everyone’s favorite cup — and as with wine, value becomes a function of age for many classicists — but the MAW does right by pointing to potential career routes outside of the symphony hall, and also by including imaginings from the front lines of musical invention. The most entertaining work of the evening was Counting Duets, a sequence of four Études by György Ligeti (arranged for ensemble by blackbird flutist Tim Munro and pianist Lisa Kaplan) that interlocked with four of Tom Johnson’s spoken-word Counting Duets (1982). The Johnson pieces play out like a game, with two parts speaking entirely in numbers, contesting in dialogue, counting backward and forward, diverging and then coming together again in clockwork convergence. The Ligeti — notoriously beastly on keyboard — displayed new dimensions and marvels in these ensemble renditions. Duo for Heart and Breath by Richard Parry constituted the most intimate moment of the night, an experimental duet where pianist (Kaplan) monitored her heartbeat (via stethoscope) for tempo, while violist Yvonne Lam communed with her own breath. I had the vivid sense that others in the room, like me, were suddenly made aware of their own vital signs. Intentionally written in lowercase, eighth blackbird gets its name from a Wallace Stevens poem, the eighth verse speaking of “noble accents and lucid, inescapable rhythms.” More than anything, one comes away from a blackbird performance impressed with the rhythmic textures — the weave, the palette, the broad plateau of churning patterns. Matthew Duvall’s versatile percussion helps this along, with metal and rosewood marimbas, kick bass drum, snare, and other devices. But at the root, the rhythm is in the writing, and every player, winds and strings included, helps the pulse along. ■

DANCE REFLECTIONS: UCSB professor of dance Jerry Pearson looms large in his autobiographical one-man show.

A MEMOIR IN MOVEMENT

Jerry Pearson’s Body of Work. At UCSB’s HSSB Ballet Studio Theatre, Tuesday, June 24. Reviewed by Elizabeth Schwyzer

F

or most academics, career advancement requires gathering proof of publications and honors. But UCSB professor of dance Jerry Pearson has found an unconventional way to present his case to the board. With Body of Work, an hour-long solo work of dance theater, Pearson uses monologue, movement, video projection, and props to make his point. The show charts Pearson’s more than 40 years as dancer, choreographer, and artistic director, spanning from his early years in New York through the founding of his own international touring company, his move to the West Coast, and his 20-year tenure as artistic director of Santa Barbara Dance Theater. Part entertainment, part argument, it’s a startlingly sincere production. Rather than sticking to recent accomplishments, Pearson begins much farther back. He speaks of falling in love with classical music as a child, remembering the way he would put on a Beethoven record at full volume, drape himself in his mother’s jewelry, clamber on top of the sofa, and conduct with gusto. From there, he takes us on a journey through his performing career with modern dance greats Murray Louis, Alwin Nikolais, and Rudolf Nureyev, drawing together archival film footage, photos, and even text from New York reviews. He touches on the success of the Pearson Dance Company that he founded with his first wife, the dissolution of that company and his marriage, and the love affair with an Irish dancer that changed his course. Now and then, he zooms out to philosophize on the nature of dance, using video imagery drawn from Eastern art to illustrate his musings. As with all autobiographical stories, there’s a danger here of lapsing into solipsism, a peril Pearson neatly sidesteps through self-directed humor. He describes his own body as both the source of his success (“I think of my body as an instrument … a temple … a vessel,” he announces early on) yet also as the limiting factor. Aging and weight gain are part of his story, and rather than skirting these issues, Pearson bravely drives headlong at them, bemusedly and unapologetically presenting himself — a father of two in his mid-sixties — as the slightly pudgy star of his own show. In one of the show’s most tender moments, Pearson swirls onstage in a voluminous white hoop skirt, then bends low and draws out from between his feet a tiny bonsai — a symbol of his artistic fertility. It’s this unusual mixture of brashness and vulnerability that makes Body of Work work. Toss in a few ribald jokes (an Irish critic once referred to Pearson as “joyously raunchy”) and a clip of the time his dance was featured on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and you’ve got a beguiling autobiographical romp. ■ Oh, and yes, he got the promotion.

TALLULAH MEANS TROUBLE L

SUMMER CINEMA

ong before mesmerizing human train wrecks like Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton were even born, there was Tallulah Bankhead. The actress and personality was the original “it” bad girl, born into a prominent Alabama family (her father was a U. S. congressmember and, from 1936-1940, Speaker of the House). Bankhead left the South as a teenager to take up residence at New York’s famous Algonquin Hotel, where she lived and attracted attention while working her way up the ladder as a Broadway ingénue. Although her outrageous candor by Charles Donelan and prodigious appetites manifested early, it’s the middle and later years of Bankhead’s life that have done most to make her a legend. It was Bankhead’s unmistakably deep, bourbon- and tobacco-cured drawl that actress Betty Lou Gerson imitated when she created Cruella de Vil for Disney’s  Dalmatians. While most impressions of the great Tallulah have amounted to little more than cartoons, Matthew Lombardo’s comedy Looped uses a specific episode from the actress’s real life to ground his characterization of her in something much subtler than animation or slapstick. Bankhead experienced most of her success as an actress onstage rather than in the movies, where she rarely found her version of a comfort zone. (For a notable exception, check out her awardwinning performance in Alfred Hitchcock’s Lifeboat. In conjunction with the Santa Barbara run of Looped, Ensemble Theatre Company will present a free screening of the film at the New Vic on Monday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m.) Late in life, with bills to pay and few alternatives, Bankhead starred in a string of low-budget horror films, the final one of which was something called Frantic (in the U.K.) or Die! Die! My Darling! (for its U.S. release). Summoned into the recording studio after the conclusion of filming, Bankhead was asked to record or “loop” some lines of dialogue by lipLUSH LIFE: Diane Louise Salinger as Tallulah synching to her own image Bankhead is flanked by Brian Harwell (left) as on-screen. Somehow this sound engineer Steve and Jon Levenson (right) took longer than expected as Danny Miller, the long-suffering film editor, in Ensemble Theatre Company’s Looped. — much longer — and the tape recorder in the studio was rolling the whole time. Matthew Lombardo came into possession of this audio artifact, and, after due consideration, thought there was a play there. Looped dramatizes and condenses into a two-act show a daylong confrontation between a drunken, drugged-out Bankhead and the film’s sound editor and engineer who coaxed her through the session. The jokes fly from start to finish, but beneath the rip-roaring surface, there’s a whole other game being played. “The editor, who is quite buttoned-up, poses a challenge for her,” said director Glenn Jordan in an interview last week.“She’s trying to entertain him, but she’s also digging, looking for what’s beneath that uptight exterior.” Diane Louise Salinger, who will play Bankhead, is enjoying the experience of working on a character with no filter.“She turns everything on its head,” said Salinger.“When I think about why she has become such a legend and try to understand what has made her so loved, I keep coming back to the idea that she was one of those rare types who are capable of giving themselves over to the spirit of Dionysus, the god of theater and of drunken ecstasy.” Jordan points out that the play tells Bankhead’s story in a relatively conventional way, yet because of who she was and what she liked to say and to do, there are “surrealistic moments.” Although the play is a full-blown comedy — Jordan compares its rhythms to those of Neil Simon — there’s a serious point to it, and a heart.“Tallulah thought that life was a joke,” said Salinger,“but then the secrets come out.” Sophisticated comedy of the sort that Bankhead pioneered, along with such collaborators as Noël Coward, has long been a staple of the stage in Santa Barbara. Here’s to a new play that’s willing to embrace it.

H

ow d do you defi d fine h happiness? i ?M Money, h health, lth h jjob b security it allll probably b bl rankk high on the list, but what about balance? Or more specifically, the balance between chasing a dream and regular old day-to-day survival. For young L.A. singer/songwriter Robert Francis, it was this question that led him down his current road, which, on the day we spoke, was about 20 miles outside of Nashville, Tennessee, where Francis was speeding along to the next part of a national tour that will bring him and his band, The Night Tide, to SOhO on July 9. Francis, who released his fourth LP Heaven in June, is a rumpled exemplar of 2014’s singer/songwriter set. Scooped up young (age 19) by a major label (Atlantic), he delivered a promising first, and then a solid second album. He opened for bigname acts, scored a handful of high-profile by Aly Comingore placement deals, and seemed dead set for stardom. But by album three, Francis started feeling pressure from his label, and in response, he jumped ship to an indie for more “creative control.” Long tours and low show turnouts followed, and before he knew it, Francis was 25 and self-medicating in the back of a tour bus somewhere in Europe. “You find yourself staring at your band members, driving 47 hours, wanting to get out, playing a show, then immediately getting back in,” he recalls. “There’s really only one way to cope with that. And it was everyone in the band, whether they were becoming violent or drinking heavily — it was kind of the only thing to do.” In true VH Behind the Music fashion, drugs, alcohol, and women problems were causing Francis to self-destruct, and forcing him to question his future as an artist. “After that tour, I never wanted to do it again,” he says. Following a brief and troubled relocation to Michigan with a girl he met on the road, Francis returned home to California with no real plan of action. “I got a place in Laguna and tried to live a more relaxed lifestyle,” he says, “but I realized that when I’m stagnant, I feel like I’m cheating myself.” With California at his fingertips, Francis spent the following months traveling up and down the coast with his pup, seeking inspiration in the silence and natural splendor of his home state. What he came away with was a renewed sense of self, as well as the makings for a fourth album. “Most of the songs on the record are just about fate and how we manage the cards which we’re dealt,” he explains.“It’s about how we deal with our dayto-day lives and love and relationships; it’s about steering your way through life and being optimistic.” While Heaven has a hopeful gleam to it, Francis’s latest collection runs the gamut in both style and severity. The whole thing creaks open with the dark piano ballad “Something Tells It Not To.” It’s followed immediately by the top-down, Tom Petty–conjuring “Baby Was the Devil.” Midway through, the album’s brooding title track offers a lovelorn dose of twangy soul. “I always thought that success and happiness were the same thing,” says Francis.“For me growing up, my idea of heaven was getting on the road and playing music — playing a show with Neil Young, or hanging out with Willie Nelson, or getting in a tour bus and traveling to some part of the world. But then I reached this place where I had accomplished a lot of the things I set out to accomplish, but I wasn’t happy, and I had no idea why. I started thinking a lot about this whole idea of personal happiness and one’s personal quests, and I wanted to name the album after that.” “I think with this record, I settled into a place where I didn’t feel like I needed to prove myself. I didn’t feel like I had to try so hard, and I think the best music comes from that.”

a&e | FILM REVIEW

EXTINCTION

Transformers: Age of Extinction. Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and Niccola Peltz star in a film written by Ehren Kruger and directed by Michael Bay. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino

F

or the first 15 minutes, this film is surprisingly not that bad. It opens from a stationary perspective in outer space overlooking Earth, with outlandishly large spaceships entering the picture from behind. You know, Star Wars. Then, cut to the lush surface of the planet where cute dinosaurs roam, until the scary spaceships alter the course of Earth’s future history. A bit like, maybe, Prometheus. Then, fast-forward on the same planet, soaked in rural Americana — cornfields, flapping Old Glory, and a rustic country barn soon to be invaded by a giant robot. Real Steel or The Iron Giant, anyone? After that, it becomes a Michael Bay movie, and we drown. The story in this allegedly refreshed fourth chapter of the franchise based on cartoons based on a popular toy is confusingly obtuse. Wahlberg plays a junk-repairing engineer named Cade three years after the mayhem from the last Bay-directed debacle leveled Chicago and lost the good Autobots their cachet with our dopey government. Out on a picker’s buy, he finds a big truck that turns out to be comatose Optimus Prime, the head Autobot. Meanwhile, the evil Decepticons have been unwittingly cloned by Stanley Tucci, who has managed to dig up the secret of transformium, the unstable element that gives these giants life. No, really, transformium, which scientists will tell you is very close in molecular structure to unobtanium, discovered by a screenwriter exposed to unimaginitivium. But there is far worse here than an idiot script here, and it’s Bay’s shameless DNA. Cade finds Optimus Prime in the ruins of a movie palace. His surfersidekick Lucas wonders what kind of place this theater might be, sending Cade into a rhapsody about how people came from miles around once and filled it, as if he didn’t understand how movie culture died. Nowadays, Bay does fill theaters. This junky catastrophe made $100 million last weekend. But in the old days of palaces, everybody went to the movies — not just the hordes of teens and geeks who tend to devour Bay’s masturbatory spectacle-making, property-damage porn. Bay artlessly presents the apotheosis of tantrum behavior; his aesthetic is based on 9-year-old children kicking down block houses, with rich CGI detail and no bigger picture. The movies aren’t even richly felt entertainments. Godzilla at least offers us the sad regret of humans meddling with elements. You feel toxic walking out of a Bay movie because they celebrate the urge to smash but never introduce any human context — from slapstick to tragedy — that would give the undeniable momentum a chance for release. It’s wrong to blame Bay’s failure merely on commercialization, especially after seeing The Lego Movie turn a toy product into magical metaphors about creativity and work. Bay could have made movies about the exciting possibilities of change. Instead he keeps serving us big bowls of smelly transformium.

CHOOSE LAUGHS: Jenny Slate stars as a stand-up comedian grappling with an unplanned pregnancy in Obvious Child. Hotel for Dogs (100 mins.; PG: brief mild thematic elements, language, some crude humor)

✯ The Fault in Our Stars

Two kids use an abandoned motel to house stray dogs. Screens as part of the Summer Kids Series. (DJP)

Two witty teens meet and fall in love at a cancer support group. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort star. Every element of this movie sings, from the impeccable casting to the gracefully faithful bookto-film script adaptation to Josh Boone’s pitch-perfect direction. (KS) Paseo Nuevo

Tue., July 8, 10am, Paseo Nuevo

Like Father, Like Son (121 mins.; NR) A successful Japanese businessman learns that his son was switched at birth and then must decide whether to raise his biological child or the boy he’s loved as his own.

Sun., July 6, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

NOW SHOWING ✯ 22 Jump Street (112 mins.; R: language throughout, sexual content, drug material, brief nudity, some violence) After (finally) finishing high school, officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) go undercover at a local college. This is college humor at its best: smart and self-deprecating, and perfect for people who love to watch movies that make fun of movies that make fun of stuff. (DJP)

Camino Real/Metro 4

✯ Chef

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

Jon (Swingers) Favreau writes, directs, and stars in this story about a chef who loses his restaurant job and starts up a food truck as a way to reunite his estranged family. The film wears its soulful foodiness on its greasy apron; it’s a perfectly delicious, sometimes coarse, and often fine comedy that will leave you hungry at the end. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (102 mins.; PG: adventure action, some mild rude humor)

Hiccup and Toothless uncover a cave filled with new wild dragons as well as the mysterious Dragon Rider. If the point of moviemaking was just to dazzle, this would be the film of the year. Unfortunately, this thrilling, beautiful movie is nowhere near as endearing as part one. (DJP) Fairview (2D)/Fiesta 5 (2D)

After-School Activity Guide Will Publish August 14, 2014

A young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland discovers a dark family secret just as she’s on the verge of taking her vows. Director Pawel Pawlikowski’s stunning compositions and weird perspective choices force us out into Ida’s wintry bleakness in the most surprising of ways. (DJP) Plaza de Oro

✯ Jersey Boys

(134 mins.; R: language

throughout)

The Broadway musical gets reformatted for the big screen. Clint Eastwood directs. This is one of the better examples of the often tawdry music-world biopic. It may be corny, but while watching it, you’ll feel like hanging on to what you’ve got. (DJP)

Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

A 40-year-old father is thrown for a loop when the mother of his two kids picks up and moves to New York. It’s a messy film, meandering at the beginning, manic in its final minutes as it races toward its finish line, but it’s kind of fun to watch it all unfold. (KS) Riviera

scary fantasy action and violence, frightening images)

Camino Real (2D)/Metro 4 (2D) (Through Wed., July 9)

The Independent’s

(80 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements, some sexuality, smoking)

Maleficent (97 mins.; PG: sequences of

The most interesting aspect of Edge is its implicit relationship to gaming; there are repeated battles, ascending worlds, and antiseptic violence. It seems to signal video games as the new junk-movieaesthetic principle. (DJP)

(125 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements, some sexuality, brief strong language)

Chinese Puzzle (117 mins.; R: language,

✯ Edge of Tomorrow

The Commission meets monthly. Commissioners are expected to attend all regularly scheduled Commission meetings, serve on at least one standing Committee, and participate in agency interviews and site visits.

Angelina Jolie stars as a vindictive fairy who sets a curse on an infant child before realizing that the child may be the only one who can restore peace to the kingdom. This movie is clearly derived from half-baked ideas, but Jolie only seems motivated to make us believe that a character named Evil can change. (DJP)

Camino Real (2D)/Fiesta 5 (2D)

✯ Obvious Child

(84 mins.; R: language,

some bloody violence)

Donna, the story’s main character, deals with the trials and tribulations that surround an unexpected pregnancy from a bouncy-drunk hook-up. What we have here is a fine, level-headed look at abortion, with just enough tears and dark humor provided not to trivialize the issue. (DJP) Plaza de Oro

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JULY ď˜ť LIBRA

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Would you like your savings account to grow? Then deposit money into in it on a consistent basis. Would you like to feel good and have a lot of physical energy? Eat healthy food, sleep as much as you need to, and exercise regularly. Do you want people to see the best in you and give you the beneďŹ t of the doubt? See the best in them and give them the beneďŹ t of the doubt. Would you love to accomplish your most important goal? Decide what you want more than anything else and focus on it with relaxed intensity. Yes, Aries, life really is that simple — or at least it is right now. If you want to attain interesting success, be a master of the obvious.

it depicts the goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure. Its current home is the Louvre Museum in Paris, but for hundreds of years it was lost — buried underground on the Greek island of Milos. In 1820, a farmer found it while he was out digging on his land. I foresee a comparable discovery by you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. You will uncover a source of beauty, love, or pleasure — or perhaps all three — that has been missing or forgotten for a long time.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): According to an ancient Greek myth, Sisyphus keeps pushing a boulder up a steep hill only to lose control of it just before he reaches the top, watching in dismay as it tumbles to the bottom. After each failure, he lumbers back down to where he started and makes another eort to roll it up again — only to fail again. The myth says he continues his futile attempts for all eternity. I’m happy to report, Leo, that there is an important dierence between your story and that of Sisyphus. Whereas you have tried and tried and tried again to complete a certain uphill task, you will not be forever frustrated. In fact, I believe a breakthrough will come soon, and success will ďŹ nally be yours. Will it be due to your gutsy determination or your neurotic compulsion or both? It doesn’t matter.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Your urge to merge is heating up. Your curiosity about combinations is intensifying. I think it’s time to conduct jaunty experiments in mixing and blending. Here’s what I propose: Let your imagination run half-wild. Be unpredictable as you play around with medleys and hodgepodges and sweet unions. But don’t be attached to the outcomes. Some of your research may lead to permanent arrangements, and some won’t. Either result is ďŹ ne. Your task is to enjoy the amusing bustle, and learn all you can from it.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): The American painter Ivan Albright (1897-1983) was a meticulous creator. He spent as much time as necessary to get every detail right. An entire day might go by as he worked to perfect one square inch of a painting, and some of his pieces took years to ďŹ nish. When the task at hand demanded intricate precision, he used a brush composed of a single hair. That’s the kind of attention to minutia I recommend for you — not forever, but for the next few weeks. Be careful and conscientious as you build the foundation that will allow you maximum freedom of movement later this year.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Many of America’s founding fathers believed slavery was immoral, but they owned slaves themselves and ordained the institution of slavery in the U.S. Constitution. They didn’t invent hypocrisy, of course, but theirs was an especially tragic version. In comparison, the hypocrisy that you express is mild. Nevertheless, working to minimize it is a worthy task. And here’s the good news: You are now in a position to become the zodiac’s leader in minimizing your hypocrisy. Of all the signs, you can come closest to walking your talk and practicing what you preach. So do it! Aim to be a master of translating your ideals into practical action.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): The Venus de Milo is a famous Greek statue that’s over 2,100 years old. Bigger than life-size,

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): In the last two decades, seven Academy Award winners have given thanks to God while accepting their Oscars. By contrast, 30 winners have expressed their gratitude to ďŹ lm studio executive Harvey Weinstein. Who would you acknowledge as essential to your success, Libra? What generous souls, loving animals, departed helpers, and spiritual beings have contributed to your ability to thrive? Now is an excellent time to make a big deal out of expressing your appreciation. For mysterious reasons, doing so will enhance your luck and increase your chances for future success.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): You have permission to compose an all-purpose excuse note for yourself. If you’d like, you may also forge my signature on it so you can tell everyone that your astrologer sanctiďŹ ed it. This document will be ironclad and inviolable. It will serve as a poetic license that abolishes your guilt and remorse. It will authorize you to slough o senseless duties, evade deadening requirements, escape small-minded inuences, and expunge numbing habits. Even better, your extrastrength excuse note will free you to seek out adventures you have been denying yourself for no good reason.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): In the Inuktitut language spoken in northern Canada, the term iminngernaveersaartunngortussaavunga means “I should try not to become an alcoholic.� I encourage you to have fun saying that a lot in the coming days. Why? Now is an excellent time to be playful and light-hearted as you wage war against any addictive tendencies you might have. Whether it’s booze or gambling or abusive relationships or anything else that tempts you to act like an obsessive self-saboteur, you have more power than usual to break its hold on you — especially if you don’t take yourself too seriously.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Percival Lowell (1855-1916) was an inuential astronomer who launched the exploration

that led to the discovery of Pluto. He also made some big mistakes. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one: Gazing at Venus through his telescope, he swore he saw spokes emanating from a central hub on the planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface. But we now know that Venus is shrouded with such thick cloud cover that no surface features are visible. So what did Lowell see? Due to an anomaly in his apparatus, the telescope projected shadows from inside his eyes onto the image of Venus. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;spokesâ&#x20AC;? were actually the blood vessels in his retinas. Let this example serve as a cautionary tale for you in the coming weeks, Capricorn. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confuse whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within you with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outside you. If you can clearly discern the diďŹ&#x20AC;erence, your closest relationships will experience healing breakthroughs.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe in getting into hot water; it keeps you clean.â&#x20AC;? So said British writer G. K. Chesterton. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m passing his advice on to you just in time for the Purge and Purify Phase of your astrological cycle. In the coming weeks, you will generate good fortune for yourself whenever you wash your own brain and absolve your own heart and ďŹ&#x201A;ush the shame out of your healthy sexual feelings. As you proceed with this work, it may expedite matters if you make a conscious choice to undergo a trial by ďŹ re.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): â&#x20AC;&#x153;I awake in a land where the lovers have seized power,â&#x20AC;? writes Danish poet Morten Sondergaard in his fanciful poem â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lovers.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have introduced laws decreeing that orgasms need never come to an end. Roses function as currency . . . The words â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are now synonymous.â&#x20AC;? A world like the one he describes is a fantasy, of course. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible. But I predict that in the coming weeks you could create conditions that have resemblances to that utopia. So be audacious in your quest for amorous bliss and convivial romance. Dare to put love at the top of your priority list. And be inventive! Homework: Picasso said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am always doing that which I cannot do in order that I may learn how to do it.â&#x20AC;? Your comment? Write uaregod@comcast.net.

When stemless wine glasses hit the market years ago, people freaked out on the brilliant, hard‑to‑spill drinking innovation and proudly used them in all settings. But traditional style snapped back, and the stemless stemware slipped down the classiness scale. Santa Barbara’s Mr. Picky delivers a best‑of‑both‑ worlds solution with his stemless measuring glass, a Riedel‑made design that’s sleek and elegant despite missing its leg. Plus, with the measuring dots, it works for sharing wine evenly at dinner parties or for those trying to watch their consumption for whatever reason. And for those who aren’t, they also work great for beer! See mr‑picky.com.

Mesa Verde

Fresh. Tasty. Affordable.

Opening on the Mesa

O

n July 7, Chef Greg Arnold will be opening his “plant-based” (a k a vegetarian) restaurant Mesa Verde at  Cliff Drive, the former home of Cliff ’s & Co. Arnold tells me that breakfast starts at 7 a.m. and will include homemade pastries and French Press coffee. The lunch menu begins at 11 a.m. and will continue until close; dinner runs 5-10 p.m. The restaurant will be open seven days a week and will also offer beer and wine. “It’s going to be 100 percent organic including all the juice, all the pastry, all the food, completely organic,” said Arnold.“The cuisine is Modern American style. There will be dinner dishes and lunch dishes and a lot of shared plates. My cuisine doesn’t leave the Mediterranean, but that’s all inclusive, like Libya, Morocco, south of France, Sicily, the whole Middle East (Syria, Lebanon), North African, Southern Spanish, and southern Italian style cuisine.”

BBQ CONTEST: The Santa Barbara Independent’s 5th annual Sizzling Summer BBQ contest was held at Oak Park. Food writer George Yatchisin shares the results on page 39. BLUSH SHUCKS TO VICTORY: On Sunday, June

29, Finch & Fork restaurant at the Canary Hotel ( W. Carrillo St.) hosted its second annual Shuck ’n Swallow oyster-eating competition, sponsored by Santa Monica Seafood Company. Participants included Arlington Tavern, Blush, Brewhouse, Chuck’s Hideaway, Enterprise Fish Company, Finch & Fork, Hungry Cat, and Outpost at the Goodland. The team I was assigned to count — Brandon Worrell (head chef,“the shucker”) and Doug Fresh (line cook, “the swallower”) from Blush restaurant,  State Street — took top honors for the second year in a row, with 109 oysters shucked and swallowed within 10 minutes.

Barbara French Festival returns to Oak Park ( W. Alamar Ave.), July 12-13, to celebrate Bastille Day and all things French.

DÍA DE LAS COMIDAS: Join Hospice of Santa

Barbara on Thursday, July 10, for Día de las Comidas as three popular, family-owned restaurants open their doors and hearts in support of the organization’s Latino Family Services. Carlitos Café y Cantina in Santa Barbara, Cava Restaurant & Bar in Montecito, and Dos Carlitos Restaurant & Tequila Bar in Santa Ynez will donate a portion of the day’s proceeds from all three restaurants to Hospice of Santa Barbara. “My family is proud to help increase the services provided to Latino families at Hospice of Santa Barbara,” said Carlos Lopez-Hollis, who owns and operates his family’s trio of restaurants. Every month, Hospice of Santa Barbara offers its free professional counseling and care management services to more than 600 adults and 125 children who are experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness or grieving the death of a loved one. They are also present on eight middle and high school campuses, as well as UCSB, to work with children, teens, and young adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

TO: DEFENDANTS SABAS TRUJILLO, LUCIA TRUJILLO, RICK TRUJILLO, LAURA MARIE FITZPATRICK, ALEX TRUJILLO, TO THEIR ATTORNEYS OF RECORD HEREIN, AND TO EVERY PERSON WHO MAY HAVE ANY INTEREST IN ANY PROPERTY SPECIFIED HEREIN: PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on June 5, 2014, the People of the State of California filed a “Petition Pursuant To Penal Code §186.11(e) To Preserve Property Or Assets” in the above‑entitled action. The Petition seeks to preserve for subsequent levy or seizure, the assets or property in the control of the Defendants and property which has been transferred by the Defendants to any third party, subsequent to the commission of any criminal act alleged pursuant to Penal Code § 186.11(a), other than to a bona fide purchaser. Said assets or property are described in Attachment “A,” attached hereto. IF YOU CLAIM ANY INTEREST IN ANY OF THE ASSETS OR PROPERTY IN ATTACHMENT “A” AND WISH TO PROTECT THAT INTEREST FROM POSSIBLE LEVY OR SEIZURE, YOU SHOULD FILE A VERIFIED CLAIM WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER ACTUAL KNOWLEDGE OF THIS NOTICE. Pursuant to Penal Code § 186.11(g)(2), your verified claim should be filed with the Riverside Superior Court, Riverside Branch, in Case No. RIF1402238, and should identify each asset or property listed in which you claim any interest and state the nature and amount of your interest in each such asset or property. You must serve a copy of your verified claim on Deputy District Attorney Michael J. Mayman or the Supervising Deputy District Attorney for the Special Prosecutions Unit I at the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office at 3960 Orange Street, Riverside, California 92501. IF YOU DO FILE A VERIFIED CLAIM YOU MAY ALSO REQUEST A HEARING to determine whether any temporary restraining order issued with respect to any of the assets or property listed in this Notice should remain in effect; whether relief should be granted from any lis pendens recorded against any such property; or whether any existing order should be modified in the interests of justice. In order to exercise your right to such a hearing, pursuant to Penal Code § 186.11(g)(2) you should file a Request for Hearing with the Riverside Superior Court, Riverside Branch, in Case No. RIF1402238, and serve a copy of that Request on the above persons at the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office. Such a hearing shall be held within ten (10) days of your service of such a Request. If you believe that a hearing is required on less than ten (10) day’s notice to the District Attorney, you should make an application to the Court for an earlier hearing, which the Court, upon a showing of good cause, may shorten to two (2) days after service of your Request. IF YOU KNOW OF THESE PROCEEDINGS AND DO NOT FILE A VERIFIED CLAIM AS PROVIDED BY PENAL CODE § 186.11(e) (6), YOUR INTEREST IN THE ASSETS OR PROPERTY LISTED IN ATTACHMENT “A” MAY BE ELIMINATED OR ADVERSELY AFFECTED.

Dated: 6/13/2014 THE MORTGAGE LAW FIRM, PLC Adriana Rivas/Authorized Signature FOR TRUSTEE’S SALE INFORMATION PLEASE

CALL 714‑730‑2727 The Mortgage Law Firm, PLC. is attempting to collect a debt. Any information obtained may be used for that purpose. 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. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. 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. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. 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 (714) 730‑2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site ‑ www.servicelinkASAP.com ‑ for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case: 117482. 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. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. A‑4465604 06/19/2014, 06/26/2014, 07/03/2014
