FIREBUG STRIKES? Three UCSB-owned structures — a trailer, barn, and an unfinished building — were completely destroyed Friday morning in a highly suspicious fire.

Fires Raise Arson Concern UCSB Housing Project Mysteriously Torched



irefighters were already on the scene as residents of Sesame Tree Apartments poured out of their homes early Friday morning to watch a construction site across the street explode into flames that reached high above an unfinished UCSB housing project and destroyed three structures within 30 minutes. Combustion started at roughly two points about 100 yards apart.“It’s very frustrating and frightening,” said neighbor Benjamais Bemis, who has lived in her apartment for 18 years. The incident that began around 3:30 a.m. on the Fourth of July was a painful reminder for residents of the numerous — and sporadic — dumpster fires that have recently flared up in the Goleta apartment complex at  Whittier Drive off Storke Road. In the past year or so, there were three dumpster fires and one “unauthorized burning” at the location, according to county records. Neighbors have since told fire officials that a number of additional bin fires were not reported, said County Fire department spokesperson David Sadecki, though he was unsure how many more. A Sesame Tree employee, who did not want to be identified, claimed there have been nine total in the past year. Multiple neighbors recalled the recent dumpster flare-ups with considerable fear, and none doubted the university housing destruction was committed by an arsonist. “Someone is getting more daring,” said the employee. All the dumpster fires started in the middle of the night, he added. Going door-to-door after one of the burnings, the employee found a witness who said that he saw two people throw something to ignite the dumpster fire and then run off, but an investigation was never launched. In 10

fact, none of the bin fires were investigated by county officials. For that to happen, Sadecki said, the fires would have had to spread beyond the dumpsters, and authorities would need witness statements or suspect leads. Officials have yet to declare Friday’s fire the work of an arsonist, but UCSB Police Sergeant Rob Romero said he was leaning toward that conclusion, though couldn’t officially declare it. “That would be insulting what the [fire] officials are doing,” he said. Several leads are coming in, Romero explained, but it would be “premature” to say a person of interest has been identified. Witnesses reported seeing a white male jumping the fence circling the site and fleeing toward the nearby slough. “The development was not popular,” said neighbor Lynne Sehabert, calling the space before its development a “beautiful field.” Contempt for the building in progress, coupled with frustrations about loud construction noises, adds to the suspicion. Initial media reports stated damages could cost the university as much as $12 million, but UCSB spokesperson George Foulsham said an estimate has not been finalized. In addition to the unfinished building, an old barn and a construction trailer were destroyed. It is likely that the project, which broke ground last year, will take up to a year to complete, Foulsham said in a statement. The UCSB Police Department, which is handling the investigation, is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the successful conviction of the offender or offenders. Plans for the destroyed university housing — named Sierra Madre Apartments, formerly a golf course — had included rooms for more than 500 students, including 115 apartments of

double-occupancy rooms and 36 units of single units for faculty and students. The complex was supposed to open by fall of next year. Arson is not rare in the area. In Isla Vista, 24 arson-related events were reported from 20112013; 16 involved furniture and were likely part of a regular but illegal tradition carried out at the end of UCSB’s school year. Two incidents involved Molotov cocktails thrown at Foot Patrol deputies, according to sheriff ’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. The mysterious blaze echoes a 20-acre fire that scorched the Coal Oil Point Reserve on June 26 around 9:45 p.m. It took firefighters much of the night to contain the wind-driven flames that consumed the vegetation from west to east. Plants were dry because of the drought, but officials had not issued a “red flag” warning that night or the night of the university housing fire. Especially alarmed by the fire was reserve director Cristina Sandoval, who has witnessed floods and storms with some frequency but has only seen three fires in the past 10 years. On the night of the June 26 Tank Fire, Sandoval said her daughter saw two fireworks set off and saw smoke in the same spot a few minutes later. “It’s confusing at this point,” she said. Authorities contacted a subject who happened to be in the area at the time, but he was later let go. The cause is still unknown and under investigation, Sadecki said. In an interesting side note, the Tank Fire uncovered a cluster of shells — a possible archeological find — as well as a copper plate from 1919, when Colin P. Campbell owned much of now-UCSB property. “Nobody knew where it was,” Sandoval said. “When it got burned, it just ■ stood out, and you could see it.”

News of the Week

Robert Perez (pictured), a retired insurance administrator for the Santa Barbara County Firefighters Union, was sentenced on 7/3 to three years in state prison for stealing $113,000 from the union. Under a plea deal with the District Attorney’s Office in April, Perez pleaded no contest to the seven felony grand theft and felony tax evasion charges. He also faces a $100,000 fine and restitution payments to the union, which can be deducted from his pension. The restitution will be ironed out later this month, as Perez and the DA disagree on the amount.

A 66-year-old Montecito man who threatened to blow up his house was arrested 7/7 after a five-hour standoff with authorities. David Tallman called 9-1-1 at 3:15 a.m. and told Sheriff’s dispatchers he was going to explode several acetylene tanks in his home in the 1300 block of Virginia Road. After the Sheriff’s bomb squad and hostage negotiation team arrived at the location, 138 Reverse 9-1-1 calls were sent to nearby residents instructing them to evacuate. At around 8:10 a.m., a small fire broke out in Tallman’s house, and negotiators convinced him to surrender soon after. County Probation will seek a $200,000 state grant that would allow the department to examine potential racial and ethnic disparities in the area’s juvenile justice system. County agencies would study the data on those ages 10-17 who are referred to Probation and booked into Juvenile Hall; according to figures from 2013, African-American and Latino children enter Juvenile Hall at higher rates (relative to their populations) than their white peers. The money would cover trainings on recognizing implicit bias. Grant winners will be announced in September.

CITY Chronic technical difficulties — not to mention a thick, heavy fog — plagued this year’s Fourth of July fireworks at the city’s waterfront, leading to a lengthy delay and prompting the Fire Department to pull the plug before the grand finale. It was also the first year in many that Sparkle was not on hand to play patrioticthemed music due to a waning of relations between Sparkle organizers and City Hall. Under its contract, City Hall is obligated to pay event organizer Bay Fireworks $42,000, but since the Fourth, both sides have been meeting to discuss a possible refund.

Everyone Angry at Winery Rules It’s been nearly two years since the County of Santa Barbara started revising the rules for building new wineries on unincorporated county land, as was initially directed by a unanimous decision of the Board of Supervisors. But despite many meetings, tons of public comment, and lots of adjustments to the draft ordinance, vintners and those of their neighbors who worry about the industry’s growth seem unhappier than ever. Vintners, who have now formed their own political action committee, believe the new rules will amount to business-stifling overregulation whereas concerned residents of certain pockets of the Santa Ynez Valley feel that their woes won’t be resolved by the planning department’s ongoing efforts. Such complaints will again come to a head at a hearing next Wednesday, July 16, at 6 p.m., inside St. Mark’s of the Valley Church in Los Olivos, where county planners will be accepting comment on what to study as part of the environmental report on the ordinance. “We were blindsided,” said Ross Rankin, owner of Imagine Wine and president of Winegrowers of Santa Barbara County, the new PAC that was incorporated almost one year ago. “There was no discussion with us prior to the proposed winery ordinance revision, and during the process, it has become extraordinarily clear that this is not to our benefit and was not intended to be in the first place.” Rankin, who would not divulge the members or funds raised by the PAC, citing fear of reprisal, said that the group’s immediate goal is to get the ordinance tabled. Cerene St. John, a Ballard Canyon resident who has become one of the loudest voices calling for stricter rules, isn’t pleased either. She claims the new rules would allow small wineries to have “very large entertainment facilities,” explaining that “this version also does not adequately address the impacts on neighbors. It does not address the issue of the roads at all, and it does not add any enforcement mechanisms, metrics, or penalties to make the ordinance enforceable.” County planner Stephanie Stark expects that a draft environmental impact report will be released later this summer, triggering another round of hearings and public comments. In related news, her supervisor, Jeff Hunt — the former deputy director of Long Range Planning who had been lured to the job from Maui in 2010 — abruptly resigned in May, — Matt Kettmann which was a sudden shock to many involved in this process.

COUNTY Santa Barbara County Fire recently received a $300,000 donation from Montecito billionaire Craig McCaw; the money comes out of concern over how the drought could affect the summerfall fire season. Fire Chief Michael Dyer will present a detailed spending plan — possibly for additional staffing — to the supervisors in August. Last July, McCaw and Independent Publisher Joe Cole successfully fought against building a third fire station in Montecito, a project that was found to have an insufficient environmental analysis and which Montecito residents said would violate the community’s character. Per a 5-0 vote by the Board of Supervisors on 7/8, the Montecito Planning Commission (MPC) will provide input on revisions made to antenna system additions — proposed for the community by Crown Castle, an agent of Verizon — before the board makes its decision on the project in August. The MPC denied the company’s proposal in May, citing aesthetic incompatibility, which prompted the company to take its plans — which have seen nearly 150 changes — before the supervisors on 7/1. Supervisor Salud Carbajal has implored Crown Castle to seriously consider his constituents’ concerns, especially given many Montecitans’ claim that cell-phone coverage is adequate. Expanded health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act has allowed most of the

approximately 1,000 patients formerly served by the county’s Medically Indigent Adult Services Program to qualify for MediCal or private plans, causing the state to rescind most of its funding for the program. Public Health has since instituted a new program for the 50 patients who still need the services; the Indigent Care Program, approved by the supervisors on 7/8, will operate with a $600,000 budget, saving about $3 million per year.

EDUCATION Just seven of California’s 112 community colleges make up 25 percent of transfers to University of California (UC) campuses, according to a recent UC report. Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) ranked fifth highest, sending 464 students to a UC, 461 to a Cal State campus. But critics argued city colleges have different goals, for instance, larger populations looking for an associate’s degree. The report noted that since 2011, international transfer applicants increased by 11 percent, perhaps due to community college recruitment. Joan Galvan, SBCC’s spokesperson, said the college caps its international student enrollments at 8 percent of the total credit student population. Of the 7,550 students enrolled this summer, 614 students have international visa status. The price of college will be a tad cheaper this school year for middle-class UCSB families. cont’d page 12  Because of a new pro-

Sticker Shocked Paying More Money for Less Water

LONG STRAW: W. J. Whorf seals sections of new pipe to reach and pump from deeper points of Lake Cachuma.


BY N I C K W E L S H hree weeks ago, Ray Stokes of the Central Coast Water Agency (CCWA) was informed that his outfit had been undercharged anywhere from $4 million to $7 million by the Department of Water Resources for shipping negligible quantities of state water into Santa Barbara County this past year. This week, Stokes — now celebrating his first year at the helm of the county water agency responsible for distributing that dribble of state water to households from Santa Maria to Carpinteria — would discover how badly the Department of Water Resources had underestimated the error. It turns out that Stokes and CCWA are on the hook for $9.3 million, half payable by the end of this year, the rest by next July. The Department of Resources apparently forgot to factor in the cost of pay raises and hiring an additional 125 new employees into the bills that CCWA just paid off. Statewide, the cost of this omission came to $183 million. It’s not lost on Stokes that this year — with California in the grip of one of the most ferocious droughts on record — CCWA has gotten less than 5 percent of the state water for which its customers are collectively charged $58 million a year. Stokes is quick to point out he championed the pay raises and the new employees hired — they were necessary to make the system reliable — but he’s not convinced anyone’s getting the real story. Likewise, he remains flabbergasted so vast an enterprise as the Department of Water Resources would have no reserves to help cushion such eventualities. To put this fiscal whoopee cushion in perspective, South Coast water agencies — primarily Montecito and Santa Barbara — have already spent or committed to spending $5.6 million to buy 6,900 acre-feet of supplemental water from outside water districts to get through this year and the next. With rueful humor, Stokes noted he’s currently negotiating with a water agency in the Mojave Desert for an additional 1,000 acre-feet. With the entire state now a drought zone, the good news is that South Coast water customers sucked 700 acre-feet less water out of Lake Cachuma this June than they did the year before. That’s positive because Lake Cachuma — which supplies one-half the water needs of South Coast

customers — has gotten low enough to trigger a 55 percent cutback in normal water deliveries. Tom Fayram, water czar for Santa Barbara County, expressed some skepticism at how much of this savings was achieved through voluntary conservation efforts. Since February, South Coast customers have been exhorted to cut water consumption by 20 percent. Montecito has dramatically jacked up water rates for especially thirsty households and seen a dramatic drop in consumption. The City of Santa Barbara has yet to see any real conservation savings, but its new water rates — designed to punish water extravagance — just went into effect July 1. At this rate, it’s only a matter of months before Lake Cachuma drops below the dam’s lowest intake portals. That means the water will have to be pumped up — at great cost, mechanical effort, and electrical energy — to get into the intake portals, through the tunnel, and into customers’ homes. This enterprise will cost roughly $6 million to build and operate, but according to Fayram, work is underway, and the system will be in place well before it’s absolutely needed. Meanwhile, the City of Santa Barbara is pursuing plans to reactivate its long mothballed desalination plant if it doesn’t rain this winter. Although the city’s plant — operated briefly in 1991 — is decidedly old school where environmental protection for sea life is concerned, it does not appear likely the California Coastal Commission or the California Water Resources Control Board will object vigorously. Nor does it seem the state water board’s top-to-bottom review of desalination plants — just released last week in response to 15 proposed facilities along the coast — poses an insurmountable hurdle to reactivation. According to state water board officials, Santa Barbara’s plant can probably win approval so long as it mitigates its deadly impacts on microscopic sea life by restoring wetlands or habitat elsewhere and comes equipped with the most restrictive mesh screening to keep tiny sea creatures from getting sucked into the expensive — $30 million to rebuild, another $5 million to operate annually — water-making machine. None of this will be necessary should this winter’s predicted El Niño deliver a heavy storm or two. As to the chances of that happening, CCWA’s Ray Stokes ■ had only one word.“Hah!” July 10, 2014

New Gun Laws After I.V. Murders?

Six weeks after Elliot Rodger killed six people in Isla Vista, three of them with semiautomatic handguns, area politicians have promised to strengthen gun-control laws. Uniting at the federal, state, and county levels, a group of elected officials gathered Monday on the Isla Vista bluffs at Walter Capps Park. There were several “red flags” prior to Rodger’s deadly pursuit, and the proposed measures seek to address the nexus between mental health and gun control, several officials noted. Heading the event, Representative Lois Capps (pictured) spoke first and told reporters about two bills in the pipeline. One is dubbed the Pause for Safety Act and would grant funds to states that adopt specific law enforcement practices. These steps include checking gun databases before responding to welfare checks and allowing families to secure court orders that would temporarily confiscate firearms or prohibit their purchase. Another of Capps’s bills would expand protections for all (not just spouses or cohabitants) affected by domestic violence and stalking. Following the Sandy Hook shooting at a Connecticut elementary school in 2012, various attempts to strengthen gun control at the national level have stalled. Gaining considerable attention were congressional bills that sought to implement “universal background checks” — eliminating exceptions for private dealers and gun shows — but such measures have since been tied up in partisan wrangling. Answering a question from a reporter, Capps said the difference in the Pause bill is that it allots money specifically for law enforcement to give them another “tool in the tool chest” when dealing with mental illness cases. At the state level, Assemblymember Das Williams — working with State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson — authored similar state legislation that would allow a family member or roommate (for at least six months) to temporarily separate a person in question from a firearm, though permanent confiscation would “ultimately be up to the judge.” Last week, the supervisors and District Attorney Joyce Dudley backed the bill. Since May 23, almost one shooting a week has shaken a different community in the country, Williams said. Joyce Dudley, Supervisor Doreen Farr, Police Sgt.

At Tuesday’s board meeting, Emilio Handall, assistant superintendent of elementary education, said the technology ran fairly smoothly. He also presented survey results given to teachers and students after the debut of “Smarter Balanced.” Mostly using iPads or desktop computers in classrooms, 54 percent of students said the test was harder than the former multiple-choice standardized assessments. That seemed low, Handall said, and comments indicated students found explaining their work in writing difficult. The actual results will not be available statewide during the transition.

At the helm of McKinley will be Jacqueline Mora, who has served as a principal at a college prep school in San Francisco and at an elementary school in Glendale. Veronica Binkley will take over Harding. Binkley comes from Oxnard and has worked as an assistant principal, multischool principal, and education consultant for many schools, including Harding. Sierra Loughridge, now principal at Washington, has been overseeing 10 elementary school campuses and one junior high as the district’s child development and after-school program coordinator. Previously, she worked in administrative and teaching positions in the area and in New York City.

DEATHS Attorney Jeremy Hass, a passionate area historian long active in efforts to preserve the original fortress erected by Spanish colonialists in what would become downtown Santa Barbara, died 6/30 at age 78 of heart disease. Hass relentlessly lobbied elected politicians in Sacramento during the 1970s and 1980s for the funds necessary to acquire the properties that once composed the Presidio. In addition, he fought to have the project designated as a state park. Fierce and outspoken, Hass would do political combat with younger historians more focused on preserving Santa Barbara’s Chinese and Japanese pasts, and eventually the Presidio project would encompass aspects of all these overlaying pasts. ■




ICE Holds End


FIRED UP: Hazel Davalos speaks during a recent Santa Maria City Council meeting.



ith notable lack of fanfare and effective May 28, County Sheriff Bill Brown has stopped holding immigrants incarcerated in the County Jail 48 hours beyond their detention dates as a courtesy to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The month before, a federal judge in Oregon had ruled that such holds unsupported by federal warrants were unconstitutional. Since then, sheriff agencies throughout the country — but especially in California — have stopped what had been a routine practice over the past five years. This week, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck announced his department would no longer participate with federal authorities in such holds; last month the Orange County Sheriff did the same. While Brown has maintained an assiduously low profile on the matter, his spokesperson Kelly Hoover reported ICE requested that such holds be placed on 611 county jail inmates who’d been detained

on various charges while in the United States illegally. Hazel Davalos, an organizer with the Central Coast Immigration Rights Coalition, said she hopes to meet with Brown in August to obtain a written clarification of the department’s position. Beyond the federal ruling, Davalos noted that the Trust Act, signed by Governor Jerry Brown, went into effect this year, which mandates that each of California’s 58 counties extricate itself from the Secure Communities Program, out of which the ICE holds originated. Davalos said the stated intent of Secure Communities — to deport serious criminals to their countries of origin — failed in practice as a majority of those deported were not criminals at all or were minor violators.“The most serious consequence was the erosion of trust between law enforcement and the immigrant communities,” she said.“If you know your husband could be deported if you call about domestic abuse, ■ who’s going to call?”

Jail Funding a ‘Moving Target’?


BY LY Z H O F F M A N he Board of Supervisors this week officially authorized Sheriff Bill Brown to snatch the $39 million check the state dangled months ago to cover the construction costs for the recidivism-reducing wing Brown wants to accompany the planned North County Jail. In making his case for the cash, Brown presented his “best estimate” for the wing’s staffing and operating costs, but cautioned — to some of the supervisors’ chagrin — that those figures could fluctuate. Dubbed the Sheriff ’s Transition and Reentry (STAR) Complex, the 52,208-square-foot wing will provide beds and transitional services for 228 inmates. Brown said he envisions the facility offering, among other programs, educational partnerships with Allan Hancock Community College and reading lessons through the United Way, with special privileges including more hours of recreation and visitation. The wing represents somewhat “uncharted territory” statewide, Brown said, but will allow those who live there to become “productive members of society rather than burdens on society.” Brown said he needs 26 custody deputies — 21 transferred from the existing jail, five new hires — and four custody sergeants, who will be promoted from their current positions, to

staff the complex. (With the opening of the entire North County Jail campus will come the closing of the existing jail’s Medium Security Facility and three of its male housing units.) Running the entirety of the North County Jail campus could cost nearly $18 million every year, an increase of about $600,000 from the estimate Brown made in June. Brown said he’ll be looking at how to bring that number down, but he didn’t escape the frustrations of Supervisor Janet Wolf, who called the numbers a “moving target,” and Supervisor Doreen Farr, who took issue with the projections coming without a schematic design of the facility, which won’t be ready in time for Brown’s next presentation on the facility in the fall. The main portion of the new jail should open in early 2018, but the STAR complex could be a year behind that schedule. In September, the board will consider whether or not to use a project stabilization agreement (PSA) to source contractors for the construction, expected to start next June, of the main portion of the new jail. Dozens of public speakers spoke on both sides of the issue, with those in favor of the deal saying it would guarantee the hiring of regional workers and those against it countering it would unfairly benefit ■ union contractors.

The Bait and Switch of

Seafood Fraud

THE BUSINESS END: Pictured are some fish for sale at a Santa Barbara seafood market.

Dual Bills Look to Close Legal Loopholes, but Fishers and Others Worry About More Red Tape and Higher Costs

hat red snapper you bought at the market: Is it actually rockfish? How about the pricey local halibut you ordered for dinner: Is it really a cheap, farm-raised whitefish from Asia? What about the tuna at your favorite sushi joint — really yellowfin, as labeled, or is it bigeye with dangerous amounts of mercury? And just how “fresh” can spiny lobster be when it’s sold in July, far after the season has ended? To answer such buyer-beware questions, an ocean conservation group backed by celebrities but reviled among fishermen published a study last year on “seafood fraud” in the United States. The results were startling: Of 1,215 samples taken from 674 restaurants, grocery stores, and seafood markets, DNA testing revealed that onethird were mislabeled. Farm fish were sold as wild catch, vulnerable species mongered as sustainable, and watch-list items offered under different names. Some of it was criminal deception made in the name of profit. Other times, confusion came out of archaic slang names around the country or bad translations in overseas sales. Of the 14 regions tested throughout the U.S., Southern California fared the worst with a 52 percent mislabeling rate. And of the retailers tested countrywide, seafood fraud was found most often at sushi venues, which clocked a 74 percent mislabeling rate. Careful not to single out specific locations, Oceana, the organization that commissioned the study, said it was impossible to tell when and where the mislabeling had taken place: if it were perpetrated by the fisher, buyer, distributor, shipper, or the grocer or restaurateur who actually sold the public the fish. Seafood’s chain of custody can be so long and complicated, the researchers argued, that more oversight is needed to make sure consumers eat what they pay for. The U.S. imports 90 percent of its seafood — as does Santa Barbara — but reportedly tests only one percent for fraud. Pointing to that much-hyped study and a 2009 report by the federal government on similar issues, Congressmember Lois Capps and California State Senator Alex Padilla are now pushing two separate bills aimed at holes in the

regulatory net. And they’re pushing hard, in part because election season is coming: Capps is running for reelection in November, and Padilla, currently representing California’s th Senate District in Los Angeles, is vying for secretary of state. Both lawmakers have support for their legislation from national trade groups, nature organizations, and big-name chefs, but a high number of Santa Barbara stakeholders are skeptical

of import inspections and, to better track the overseas supply chain, ratchet up coordination between the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Capps is the legislation’s lead sponsor, and it enjoys bipartisan support — President Barack Obama himself pledged to tackle seafood fraud in a speech last month — but HR  has not yet been vetted by committee. The bill would create a guide COU RTE SY

about what the bills hope to accomplish, how they’ll be enforced, and what more red tape may mean for the South Coast. They’re quick to note wholehearted support for accurate labeling, but they’ve also expressed distrust of Oceana’s data and motives, calling the proposed legislation hollow politicking around a nonissue.


Introduced in March 2013, the federal SAFE Seafood Act (SAFE stands for Safety and Fraud Enforcement) would increase the frequency

to acceptable market names and set packaging rules to ensure the end-of-the-line buyers know the scientific and market names of the species, method of harvest and gear type used, date of the catch, the weight or number for an individual fish or lot, if the catch was previously frozen or treated with a substance that might affect its weight, and if it was farm raised. “This law does not ask fishers to report any information that they do not already collect,” Capps’s office recently told The Santa Barbara Independent, explaining that it’s “a great way to

support the local fishing economy and promote sustainability.” It would level the playing field by targeting “bad actors” in the international market and add a needed level of consumer safety, her office said. Violators would be fined from $10,000$30,000 per offense, could be responsible for any monetary loss incurred by mislabeling, and would be added to a public online database. A recent study estimated that 20-32 percent of U.S. seafood imports, worth between $1.3 billion and $2.1 billion, were caught through illegal or unreported methods. To promote the bill, Capps toured Santa Barbara Harbor in April, but she may have harvested more anger than support. Gary Burke with the Commercial Fishermen of Santa Barbara took the harbor tour with Capps, but he said he’s worried that more regulation will mean a higher cost for fish and that mislabeling is not as dire as lawmakers make it seem. “It’s a feel-good bill to make it look like they’re doing something,” he said.“It���s going to create jobs that aren’t needed and that taxpayers are going to have to pay for.” Another tour participant, who asked not to be identified, said he walked away from the event with the feeling that it was a “publicity stunt” because Capps “needed some face time” in the harbor. “I know she’s from around here, but I was shocked at how little she knew about our seafood,” he said. “She had never heard of sea urchin before — that’s the jewel of Santa Barbara!” Burke criticized Oceana for creating a false hysteria around seafood fraud to attract donors and said the organization is viewed with extreme distrust by many in his industry.“They needed a ‘crisis’ to raise money,” he said. Earlier this year, Oceana announced a $3 million grant from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and counts Ted Danson among its biggest supporters. Burke pointed out that an Oceana-backed California Assembly bill to ban controversial gill nets recently died because it relied on dubious claims of bycatch rates put forth by the organization.

nation Committee publicly demanded Oceana retract the bycatch report, claiming it contained “a variety of substantial errors, omissions, and organizational approaches” that “may seriously miscommunicate bycatch information.” The committee said that while no laws require Oceana’s reports be peer reviewed, the organization should consider adopting “a standardized peer-review process to ensure that reports like this accurately and objectively represent the best available science.” Other fishermen worried that references to mercury poisoning in Oceana’s fraud study were veiled threats against the swordfish industry and that the supposed mislabeling issue is a smokescreen for continued attacks against gill nets. Stephanie Mutz, president of Commercial Fishermen of Santa Barbara, didn’t mince words:“I think Oceana lies through their teeth.” She said the proposed bills, while well intentioned, aren’t practical.“If we had a way to track seafood, I think we would have already done it,” said Mutz, who worries that new layers of bureaucracy will raise the price of an already expensive product.“Anytime you increase overhead, it all trickles down to the fishermen,” she said. “It makes it so people want to buy tilapia instead of local halibut.” Sarah Rathbone of Community Seafood echoed similar concerns.“It’s problematic when there’s increased regulation on local fisheries that are already doing things right,” she said. Top-down, blanket laws often mean more fees and taxes that unfairly dock smaller operations and favor big players, and bills like Capps’s can “lack rationality and specificity of fisheries in order to properly manage certain species,” she said. Both Rathbone and Mutz recommended the Saturday-morning Fishermen’s Market at the harbor as the surest way to buy fresh and local seafood straight from the source. For its part, Oceana — which started in 2001 and is now the largest ocean-conservation nonprofit in the world — has unflinchingly stood by its research and often points to its many policy-level victories to curb pollution, protect vulnerable wildlife and habitats, and promote responsible fishing. In the last two months, it has touted its roles in National Marine Fisheries Service orders to protect sperm whales and rockfish, and last week it called on the World Trade Organization to eliminate fuel subsidies for high-seas fishing. In February, Oceana came out ahead in a battle with NOAA over sharkfin bans, and in January, Shell announced it wouldn’t pursue exploration drilling in the Arctic Ocean in 2014 after Oceana successfully sued the Department of the Interior over a leasing dispute.



While the Capps bill is focused nationally and internationally, Padilla’s aims at commerce in California. The bill, modeled after similar legislation recently adopted in Washington State, was passed by the California Senate in May and will be voted on in the Assembly by August 31. After that, it goes to the governor’s desk. Padilla’s first bill as a state senator was the menu-labeling initiative that requires chain restaurants to post nutrition information, namely calorie counts. Padilla’s concern is that, between 1950 and 2006, the world’s annual fishing haul more than quadrupled, from 19 million tons to 87 million tons, a rate that a 2006 Science magazine study determined would spell worldwide fishery collapse by 2048. Padilla believes labeling fraud lets illegally caught fish and shellfish into the supply chain, a crime that continues to harm an already hurting ocean. Part of the problem is that seafood naming conventions are historically confusing and unwieldy — sometimes dozens of species of fish are called a single name and, alternately, there can be many different names for the same fish — not to mention that average consumers would be hard-pressed to accurately name the fish on their plate or in their grocery bag, especially once filleted. So Padilla’s state bill would require grocery stores and markets to label all seafood with the FDA-approved common name and note if it’s wild caught or farm raised, or harvested in U.S. waters or overseas. Restaurants would also need to provide common names but have been allowed to skip the other information after the California Restaurant Association successfully lobbied it would be too cumbersome. Talks are now taking place to possibly include the other details on chalkboards or menu inserts. Violators would be fined $1,000 and face up to a year in jail. Unique “common” names of seafood are often less appetizing than the publicly known “market” names. For instance, right now, slimehead can be sold as orange roughy, squat lobster as langostino, hogchoker as sole, machete as ladyfish, pompano dolphin as mahi-mahi, and warmouth as sunfish. The FDA manages a list of 1,825 common names, which is added to and removed from every year for financial, political, and environmental reasons. As of last year, Patagonian toothfish can now legally be called Chilean sea bass — though everywhere seemed to be doing so anyway — and Barcoo grunter can be sold as tiger perch. Common names are also more specific: the FDA, for example, recognizes 61 different common names for different species of rockfish, 41 common names for shrimp, and 38 for shark. Despite the current ability of state retailers to rely on the more general market names, Oceana still found that rockfish was often mislabeled as snapper (a fairly well-known misnomer) and that escolar — a snake mackerel that can sometimes cause stomach problems — was routinely passed off as white tuna. Salmon fillets labeled as wild, king, and sockeye were actually Atlantic, and some halibut was found to be summer flounder or madai. Grouper were found under labels ranging from scamp to bream to perch. During interviews with Santa Barbara fishermen, market owners, and restaurateurs — most of whom wished to remain anonymous


for fear of losing business or alienating colleagues — opinions varied over how often consumers were duped. One marekt owner claimed he sees the issue every time he goes out to eat and pointed to specific instances when fish were sold as “fresh” and “local” when the species wasn’t even in season. A fisher claimed that some area restaurants secretly serve basa (a farm-raised catfish out of Asia) as halibut or cod or another type of whitefish, and that it’s not unusual for fluke from southern Mexico to be peddled as “local” catch. But other sources said they rarely if ever run into the problem, no matter if they’re in a high-scale eatery along State Street or a fish-and-chip grill on the wharf. Definitions of “local” were all over the map. Some said local CUTTING OUT THE MIDDLE MAN: Urchin diver should mean the catch was made in Stephanie Mutz said the best way to avoid seafood the Santa Barbara Channel or was fraud is to buy straight from the source at the harbor’s unloaded by area boats at the Santa Saturday-morning Fishermen’s Market.

Throw a Shoe at That Dog


myriad of banes afflicting the existence of any reporter lucky enough to still have a job is that of the obligatory anniversary story. Any selfserving organization that’s managed to perpetuate its existence for at least five years feels endowed with the inalienable right to have a cover article written attesting to their amazing foresight and staggering magnanimity. Stop the presses! Fiesta turns 90 this year! Solstice turned 40! We’re all getting older. In this vein, I’d like to extend a loud shout-out to the good folks running Vices & Spices — who never asked — who just celebrated their 39th year selling some seriously fine Mocha Java. They’ve also demonstrated it’s possible to be hip and happening in a low-key Hawaiian sort-of way even when smothered in the opulent bosom of beautiful downtown San Ro-Kay. Likewise congrats to Hazard’s Cyclesport — who also didn’t ask — which has been selling and fixing bikes for 100 years. With so many anniversaries to keep track of, I somehow forgot to send a card observing the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, not be confused with the popular rock band that pimped his name in a fit of stoned-out irony that was no doubt quite hilarious if you happened to be there. The real FF, by all accounts, was a true killjoy, described by contemporaries as dark, strange, uninspiring, and someone who cast an aura of violence and recklessness. For fun, FF

liked nothing better than to shoot wild animals by the hundreds of thousands — even kangaroos and lemurs — and accumulate trophies in similar number attesting to his appetite for gore and carnage. The deal was that FF stood next in line to run the Austro-Hungarian Empire — kind of like China, Exxon, and Fox News rolled into one — but that destiny would be denied when Gavrilo Princip, a Serbian 19-year-old hanging out with a group of proto-anarchist punks sporting the unimaginably unoriginal name the Black Hand, intervened. First, Gav chucked a bomb in FF’s general direction, prompting FF to stand up and object, “I come here to visit, and you throw bombs at me! This is outrageous.” Gav and crew rectified their lapse in manners by popping a cap in FF’s neck and one in the belly of his poor wife, Sophie. This set in motion what was known as “The Great War” or alternately “The War to End All Wars,” but which, in fact, was neither. Austria-Hungary — being disrespected — felt compelled to invade Serbia, thus pissing off Russia, and Germany sought to make lemonade by invading Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. When the dust settled five years later, nine million people had been slaughtered, another seven million maimed so bad they wished they’d been killed, and another 15 million merely scarred for life. The United States, then at best a secondrate also-ran, shrewdly waited until almost everyone had already been killed, jumping only at the very last minute “to save the day.”

Ever since, the world has been our proverbial oyster, over which we insist upon our exclusive right to shuck and jive as any Numero Uno would see fit. Out of all this sprang the still very contemporary genie of chemical warfare and weapons of mass destruction, not to mention of course, Ernest Hemingway, whose strippeddown minimalist literary distillation of the psychic trauma he endured as a battlefield medic has been foisted upon successive generations of high school students ever since. Americans, not being as dumb as we look, had to be led kicking and screaming into this war. From the ashes of the propaganda machine established by the White House to brainwash us into battle emerged what’s since become Madison Avenue and the whole attendant advertising industry that’s made a science of preying upon our worst insecurities to incite the expenditure of money not possessed on goods and services not needed. Four of the great empires then running The Show were wiped out entirely. In Russia, the czar was tossed overboard, giving rise to the USSR, dubbed by sometime Santa Barbara resident Ronald Reagan “the Evil Empire,” and of course, the whole Cold War thing, which would in turn transform the bucolic bliss of the once agrarian Goleta Valley into a high-tech hot bed of smokeless industry totally and utterly dependent upon military research dollars. That lucrative arrangement crashed during the Peace Scare that broke out with the fall of

the Berlin Wall, but it’s since been replaced by new waves of high-tech innovators who generate billions making devices I don’t pretend to fathom. Making this more than a gratuitous stroll down Memory Lane is how the victors divided the spoils. With the fall of the Ottoman Empire, England and France got to redraw the map of the Middle East as they saw fit, creating — via what’s termed the Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916 — the boundary lines to new countries where none existed to optimize their access to cheap, plentiful, and uninterrupted oil. The only problem was that the people occupying these new countries included various tribal, ethnic, and religious rivals who lived pretty much to kill one another. No one in their right mind would ever create a country including Shia, Sunni, and Kurds, but that’s how Iraq got born, thanks to the Sykes-Picot Agreement. No one living there at the time was party to this agreement, and it should come as no surprise — though it always does — that the religious nut-jobs leading the latest insurrection in Iraq — ISIS — have explicitly vowed to erase the map lines drawn up by the Sykes-Picot deal, no matter how much blood has to be spilled in the process.

Gordon Fleming was born in Edinburgh on the th of July, , and enjoyed two years in his Scottish homeland before moving to Bedfordshire, England, with his parents, Bob and Rita, and adoring Storrington in West Sussex, where Gordon’s creativity and love for all things mechanical and electrical flourished. After attending Steyning Grammar and terrorising half the Home Counties with boyish pranks, Gordon found a career as a telecommunications engineer with Biwater, in Nigeria—much to the relief of his expanded family that now included Elaine, Yola and Grant. After a few years, home beckoned and his return to the UK saw the start of his marketing and finance career, first with Schroeders UK, then with Varnet and eventually QAD in Australia. By now the proud father of James and older sister, Gina. His teenage years saw a further move to Fiona, his career took the next logical step with a move to Santa Barbara, where Shelly and Caroline joined his family. Gordon was a true citizen of the world and will be remembered as a larger-than-life character who never failed to bring laughter and light to everyone he met. “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from the harbour, catch the trade winds in your sails.

Jeremy Dennis Hass passed away unexpectedly on June , , at his home in Santa Barbara. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on March , , Jeremy was the eldest son of John Kelleher Hass and Margaret Gray Hass. As a Mayflower descendant, he was proud of his Irish, Scottish, and Schleswig-Holstein forbears. Jeremy spent his early years in St. Paul, Minnesota, before his family moved west. His father was an attorney and intelligence officer at the Marine Corps air base in Goleta during World War II. The family made Santa Barbara a permanent home after the war. John Hass was the founding partner in the law firm, Weldon and Hass. Margaret, Jeremy’s mother, was employed as a court reporter. Jeremy attended Goleta Union School, Dolores and San Roque parochial schools, and graduated from Santa Barbara Catholic High School in . He then attended Pomona College where he majored in economics-engineering, with a minor in history, before going on to Hastings College of Law in San Francisco, and Loyola University in Los Angeles. He was admitted to the California State Bar and joined the family law firm. Jeremy retired from the firm in . On April , , Jeremy married Ada Pinga at Mission Santa Barbara after being introduced by a mutual friend. A year and half later they gave birth to their beloved daughter Melinda. They remained a devoted couple and celebrated their th anniversary this year.

In the mid-s, while working for Jules Brasseur at Santa Barbara Title Company, Jeremy became interested in the Presidio project, a historic site in downtown Santa Barbara. He plotted the boundaries of the old fortress by studying historic property documents. By  he was an active member of the Presidio Volunteers, a group who conducted archaeological excavations and public events at the site. In early , Jeremy wrote a proposal for the future Presidio project at the request of Miss Pearl Chase and the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation (SBTHP). For the next several decades Jeremy played a major part in property acquisitions for what became El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park. He was instrumental in the gift of El Paseo and Casa de la Guerra to the SBTHP. In the s he helped arrange the purchase of the Santa Ines Mission Mills lands by the SBTHP, and he later became a member of the Trust’s Mills Committee. Always a student of history and cultures, Jeremy presented papers at a number of conferences. His intensive research on the subjects of waterworks, fulling mills, and of California pioneer Joseph Chapman contributed not only to his own publications, but to the academic field; providing source material for scholarly research on the subject by others. Prior to and during his retirement, Jeremy Hass loved collecting and restoring antique cars. He was a past president of the Antique Automobile Club of America and a member of the Horseless Carriage Club. Over the last several years, Jeremy made a weekly appearance on “History Friday” for Baron Ron Herron’s radio show. Jeremy’s involvement with organizations included sitting on the boards of the California Chapter of the American Irish Historical Society, the Sons of the American Revolution, California Mission Studies Association, and the Scholarship Foundation of the Filipino Community Association. He was a member of the State Bar of California and the Santa Barbara County Bar Association. Jeremy joined the Santa Barbara Corral of the Westerners International in  and served as sheriff (president) in -. Following in the footsteps of his father, Jeremy provided legal advice to the local Filipino Community Association. Jeremy served on the Santa Barbara Sister Cities Board and was active in the San Juan Metro Manila/Santa Barbara Sister City Association. Three years ago he organized and formed the non-profit Early California Agriculture and Technology Society (ECATS). Jeremy was a Life Honorary Director of the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation. He received the  SBTHP Pearl Chase Historic Preservation and Conservation Award. In , he was presented the Bayanihan Spirit Award by the Filipino-American Community Association of Goleta and Santa Barbara. In  he was given the President’s Award of the California Mission Studies Association. Jeremy is survived by his loving wife, Ada, his adored daughter Melinda “M’Lynn” Judith Hass, his brother Mike Hass, nephew Todd and two grandnephews, Kurt and Ryan, as well as scores of admiring and bereaved friends.

Sidewalk Counselor


am a Catholic homeowner who has worked and lived here for 30 years. I was a sidewalk counselor in the 1980s and 1990s, unaffiliated with Operation Rescue, and I did not agree with or know beforehand about the protestor who handcuffed himself to the abortionist’s car []. I now pray in the quiet of my own home and church because of my family’s suffering from the projection of insanity and violence. I would fast and pray the night before my time on the sidewalk, which was a missionary outreach in love to the innocent, helpless preborn babes in the wombs of women rushing into the clinic for help, only to be escorted to slaughter. I was occasionally able to communicate with the practicing abortionist, hoping for a change of heart through loving dialogue. Our kind and merciful Lord has now sent others who are “quiet and polite.” I was polite, but I approached every single girl entering with an urgent vocal plea to consider saving the life of the baby in her womb. Many dedicated sidewalk counselors are postabortion women who now know the truth and have the courage to share with strangers. Who are those “occasionally masquerading as patients to distribute literature inside” Planned Parenthood? — Nancy (Mohan) Gillett, S.B.

Kumbaya Complexities


he Angry Poodle Barbecue’s kumbaya compromise in “Free Your Hounds from the Pound” endorsing the hybrid system (four district election seats, three at-large seats including the mayor) won’t work. It is no different than the full “at-large” system that we have had in Santa Barbara since 1968. Elections Code § prohibits an “at-large” system that impairs the ability of a protected class to elect candidates of its choice or to influence the outcome of an election. Elections Code §(a)() includes in its definition of “at-large” any system that combines both district and at-large elections, i.e., the hybrid, the Poodle’s solution. This hybrid is exactly what the California Legislature’s statute bans.

The hybrid has been deemed a ruse to suck in the unsuspecting so that they agree to a compromise. But, in effect, the city winds up with the same corrupt system: an at-large one, dominated by the same power elite, election after election, denying minority areas favorable representatives. How? By making at-large elections too expensive and by forcing candidates to toe the party line and join a “block of three candidates” to convince voters that the “block” will be the best for the city. In fact, the block is just good for the power elite, and the minority areas get no lighting, policing, sidewalks, storm drains, etc. I guess posting signs all over the city that “you are entering a tsunami zone” (when a tsunami might occur once every 1,000 years) is a better expenditure of money — A. Barry Cappello, S.B. than to have safe streets.



n the discussion of citywide elections as opposed to district elections, we do not need to have an either/or choice. We need to find a compromise in these discussions. Here is my suggestion: Divide the city into three districts: A, B, and C. Then divide the city again into three districts: , , and . District  encompasses half of Districts A and B. District  is half of Districts B and C. District  sits across half of Districts C and A. Thus, each city voter has two councilmembers — district elections — but in broad areas, not quite citywide, but whole thirds of the city. The city has discouraged my idea, and I feel that’s because a solution is not wanted. —Yates Satterlee, S.B.

Tea Party on Parade


was horrified to see the Santa Barbara Tea Party in the July th parade. It was reported that Paul Lamberton, president of the Spirit of ’ Foundation, denied a permit to the Veterans for Peace because our parade is not a political event. Then why bestow a permit on the Santa Barbara Tea Party? He has recently lauded the Tea Party in a speech. He has no right to use our parade to make his political statement. He should lose his job. I was very upset by this outrage, and so were the majority of people around me. Get a new parade coordinator! — Gale Howell, S.B.

Reagan’s Abortion Quandary

been California governor for six months when he faced a perplexing decision: whether to sign a bill legalizing abortion in certain cases. By all accounts, the man known for decisive action and iron-clad principles didn’t know what to do. He got advice from all sides, including conferring with Cardinal James Francis McIntyre, who, as you can imagine, was against the bill. His staff was divided. Reagan was beset with soul-searching. The Therapeutic Abortion Act was aimed, according to its backers, at reducing the number of backroom abortions, which made sense. Or a risky trip to Tijuana, like the one made by a young Santa Barbaran I knew in the early 1960s to end a pregnancy that would have devastated her old-world family. She went on to a happy marriage and three children. The law allowed the procedure in cases of rape or incest or where there was a substantial risk to the physical and mental health of the woman. After Reagan reluctantly signed the law, it resulted in an estimated one million abortions, many under the mental-health provision. Few dreamed it would have such an impact. Even its backers were shocked. Reagan was said to have very much regretted signing the bill and blamed doctors for interpreting the provisions too liberally. When he ran for president, he made sure he was an ardent pro-lifer and as a result got backing from the anti-abortion movement.

Abortion was not yet the hot-button issue it is today. Then came the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 1973, Roe v. Wade, making abortion legal throughout the land. But the religious right soon began the battle to overturn the ruling. Today, it’s often said that Roe v. Wade is one Supreme Court vote away from being overturned. As much as conservatives on the court apparently would love to overturn Roe v. Wade, it seems to court-watchers more likely to die first from the old Chinese torture, death by a thousand cuts by lower courts. In old China, it wasn’t a case of tiny little slices cut from the victim’s body but of large hunks hacked off until the poor victim died a horrible death. In the last few years, Republican legislatures in dozens of states have enacted laws aimed at restricting abortions by forcing clinics to close. A favorite tactic is to require that providers have admitting rights at a nearby hospital, something that can be almost impossible to obtain. Catch-. Meanwhile, various anti-abortion cases and limitations on women’s access to contraception are in line, heading to the Supreme Court, which has made it clear that when they arrive, it’s ready and willing to hack more flesh off Roe v. Wade. Two cases in point came last week, with the Hobby Lobby ruling and when the court tossed out Massachusetts’ bubble law, which required protesters to give clinic clients 35 feet of space to enter without enduring intimidation, harassment, or worse. The fate of Santa Bar-

bara’s eight-foot bubble remains in doubt. City Attorney Ariel Calonne is optimistic that it can survive legal attack. I have my doubts and have a bet with optimistic Nick Welsh on it. (I hope he wins.) Under Hobby Lobby, the court ruled for the first time that a for-profit, closely held corporation not only has got that old-time religion but can opt out of Obamacare’s contraception insurance requirements. #JOINTHEDISSENT: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissent in Hobby Who knows what Lobby formed a touchstone for Santa Barbarans, including Jennifer else the court will pull Holland (right), protesting the Supreme Court ruling. out of its Pandora’s box as new anti-abortion cases arrive?

Music Academy of the


Reinventing Classical Performance for a New Century by Charles Donelan


t 3:30 in the afternoon on the Fourth of July — a time when many patriotic Americans have their hands wrapped around a cold beverage — 21 Music Academy of the West string fellows sit in Weinman Hall, their hands clasping the instruments that brought them here: 21 beautiful, precious violins. They have assembled for String Leadership Masterclass with Jorja Fleezanis, a violinist who is one of the world’s most distinguished concertmasters and a full professor at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. And despite the beautiful weather on this holiday Friday in Montecito, they are not alone, because directly across from them there sits an audience of some 30 people whose idea of fun on the Fourth of July involves bearing witness to great teaching. Fleezanis and her students do not disappoint. After leading the mostly soft-spoken young musicians through an opening discussion about the general principles behind leading a section of the orchestra, Fleezanis gets her first big-idea answer of the morning. It comes from Mia Laity, a 21-year-old student from the Manhattan School of Music who describes conducting as “putting into visual form the gestures that you hear in the music.” Fleezanis’s face lights up in agreement, and she responds to the remark by explaining that the conductor serves as “a kind of weathervane, something that translates the invisible into the visible.” And as she does so, the afternoon’s first big wave of pleasure and recognition courses through the attentive audience.“It’s happening,” people’s expressions seem to say. “Learning has begun.” “What else can a conductor give you?” Fleezanis asks, and when the answer “a vision” comes back, she gets excited again, exclaiming that this is precisely why the discipline of the concertmaster is so important because in tending to the conductor, he or she brings the whole orchestra closer to the music. “Great art represents the flame of life to me,” Fleezanis says, her expressive eyes locked in contact with those of her students. “It’s a mysterious thing, but in music I can hear it and feel it.” And so can we because the depth of the connection here, not only between the students and the teacher, but also between the Masterclass and its audience, has, on this late summer afternoon, suddenly become so immediate and tangible. I got the idea to check out String Leadership Masterclass from Patrick Posey, the Music Academy’s vice president of artistic planning and educational programs, who used it as an

example of what makes the Academy’s core audience special. “It’s the desire for intellectual stimulation that they bring to the experience,” Posey told me.“They will go watch Jorja Fleezanis or Glen Dicterow teaching a String Leadership Masterclass not only for the music but also for the ideas. It’s often the case that a Masterclass will include discussions of broad life concepts along with technical analysis of the music, and both of these are of interest to our audience. The concepts of leadership that our students are learning are universal.” And the instrumental Masterclasses barely scratch the surface as Marilyn Horne and her vocal fellows rehearse and prepare for this year’s opera production of Carmen.

New Horizons

The Masterclass is not the only place to witness evidence of great leadership at the Music Academy of the West this summer. Under Scott Reed, the dynamic young president who took over in 2010, the school/festival has rapidly positioned itself at the head of a new generation of classical musicians, serving as both a top training program and a uniquely stimulating environment for prestigious visiting artists. This season alone, more than 30 guest artists will participate in programming that has grown progressively more adventurous, but without losing the thread of its educational mission. On Saturday, July 12, the Academy Festival Orchestra will take the stage at the Granada with visiting artist Jeremy Denk, the distinguished pianist and author who is without question the hottest classical performer in the world today. Having spent five days here last summer, Denk, who just concluded a resoundingly successful turn as music director of the Ojai Music Festival, has chosen to come back to the Music Academy this summer for two full weeks and to appear in concert with the Academy Festival Orchestra, rather than only performing in recital. In 2014’s classical music world, it doesn’t get any better than that. And yet for the Music Academy of the West, it does get better because while Denk’s extended stay represents a huge coup, it’s not even the biggest news of the year. Earlier this spring, the school announced an extremely ambitious and far-reaching new partnership with the New York Philharmonic. As of this summer, maestro Alan Gilbert and a team of N.Y. Phil musicians will come to the Music Academy every season for the

next four years. In 2015 and again in 2017, the entire New York Philharmonic will visit Santa Barbara, first for a performance at the Santa Barbara Bowl next summer and then to collaborate with the Academy Festival Orchestra in a celebration of the school’s 70th anniversary. For the Music Academy’s students, however, these concerts are just a small part of a much bigger deal because 10 of them will be chosen every summer to travel to New York City in the fall, where they will participate in 10 days of special mentoring sessions with N.Y. Phil musicians and where they will play public concerts of chamber music designed to put the artistry of the Music Academy’s fellows in front of a New York music audience. Patrick Posey, who spends much of the year in New York City and who came to the Music Academy from Juilliard, waxes enthusiastic on this subject, observing that “by the end of 2017, we will have put 40 of our students through this process, where they play chamber music together in New York and showcase for that audience what we are doing here. To put it another way, the New York Philharmonic is coming here, but the Music Academy is also going there, and that’s not something that any other festival or music school in America can say.” A big project such as this one typically has multiple roots, and that’s definitely the case here. Perhaps the biggest one was planted two summers ago, when Matthew VanBesien, the executive director of the N.Y. Phil, began coming out to judge the Music Academy’s concerto competition. Clearly, VanBesien liked what he heard and felt strongly enough about the talent he had found here to translate his perceptions into action. But Posey also points to another important factor, and a homegrown Santa Barbara one at that, in the generosity and vision of the Mosher Foundation, which has underwritten the Music Academy’s Guest Artist program since 2011. Created by Samuel B. and Margaret Mosher, who owned the 45,000-acre Dos Pueblos Ranch, the foundation today is run by Ed and Sue Birch, close friends of the Moshers and devoted cultivators of the performing arts, health care, and education in Santa Barbara. When Scott Reed came to Birch in 2011, they brainstormed to create something that would have the impact

PROFESSOR DENK: MacArthur Fellow, Avery Fisher Prize recipient, and Musical America’s Instrumentalist of the Year for 2014, pianist and author Jeremy Denk (left) will spend two weeks playing and teaching at the Music Academy this summer, including a performance with the Academy’s Festival Orchestra at the Granada on Saturday, July 12.

with the idea for Mosher guest artists.” The Mosher Guest Artist program thus allowed the Music Academy to take its faculty model to another level and to bring in guest artists regardless of whether or not there were other people teaching that instrument. From there, of a catalyst, a program that would transform it spread to the idea that a guest artist could also be an ensemble, like Brooklyn Rider or the entire organization in a relatively short eighth blackbird, who participated in the period of time. Birch describes the discusprogram in 2013 and 2014 respectively, rather sion this way: “We sat around the table for than an individual performer. several hours and spun ideas. The one major The Mosher Foundation’s mission statemissing piece of the Academy’s program ment identifies “a particular focus on partwas the ability to bring in very significant, nerships where foundation support will world-renowned artists to spend time make a significant difference in a relatively with the students. So together, we came up short period of time,” and what the Music Academy has done with their support illustrates this principle. While the partnership with the New York Philharmonic is the real game changer, Posey sees this new relationship as “an extension of the Mosher Guest Artist program to another level” and goes on to explain how that worked.“Once we decided it was okay to have an ensemble as a guest artist, we began to think on a different scale. We have had certain things in place for a while, but it was really the Guest Artist program that was the seed of what has just happened. A party is only as good as the guest list, and through this program we’ve found a way to expand our guest list dramatically. We have a presence now that’s on a national scale because we’ve done so much recently, and that’s going to continue and get even bigger.” In the LEADING PLAYERS: This year, Music Academy foundation world, this kind of catalyst President Scott Reed (left) and Vice President for Artistic effect has become what every smart Planning & Educational Programs Patrick Posey are grant maker aspires to — creating the bringing more guest artists to campus and sending some momentum that will carry an organilucky Academy fellows to New York to train with the New zation from good to great.

Classical , Music s New Sound


Although the professional opportunities that it affords to the Music Academy’s students would alone make this partnership with the New York Philharmonic irresistible, there’s actually even more to it than that. Under Alan Gilbert and Matthew VanBesien, the orchestra has become very innovative, both in its programming and in its approach to building an audience for new music. In June the orchestra produced its first Biennial — two weeks of concerts all over town, programmed by Gilbert with some help from Juilliard, consisting solely of new music. It’s a variation

right, Thomas Adès himself, in a program featuring pieces by Charles Ives, Benjamin Britten, and Igor Stravinsky, as well as his own compositions. In thinking about all this, one can’t help but look to Posey, who has done such an extraordinary job of putting together the vast schedule of classes, concerts, and recitals, all the while remaining energized by the changes he’s seeing not only here at the Music Academy but throughout the classical music scene.“I’m excited about being alive right now because the music I love is so alive today,” he enthused. “It’s vibrant and it’s reaching people. I am surprised now whenever I hear someone bring up the tired old line about how ‘classical music is dying’ because it has become so obviously untrue, one doesn’t even need to refute it.” Describing the season’s opening orchestral concert, which began in a spectacular flourish of romantic brass with An Alpine Symphony of Richard Strauss, Posey explains the intent of that particular musical choice: “We wanted to give our audience an experience where they could walk away from the concert and talk about it and be able to say that now they really know what romanticism in music is. The whole idea of what we do depends on the fact that our audience doesn’t just come to one concert, that they come back again and again to get the bigger picture. The payoff that comes at the end of intellectual curiosity is when you see this thing that you’ve been staring at for 10 min-

on a theme the Ojai Music Festival has been championing for years — an event that’s completely devoted to the many types of serious music that are happening right now. And, while the Music Academy will always retain a primary commitment to the traditional classical repertoire, there’s also an obligation to present the new sounds alongside the old. At the end of this month, when Gilbert arrives to conduct the Academy Festival Orchestra, the program will include, alongside works by Schubert and Schönberg, the Chamber Symphony of Thomas Adès, the foremost British composer of this century thus far. And who will conduct the orchestra’s season finale at the Granada on Saturday, August 9? That’s

utes, or 10 hours, or 10 years, and suddenly you get the view from above, the big picture with the context that’s been surrounding it all along, and something clicks.” And that’s what is happening somewhere, perhaps in several places, at the Music Academy of the West right now. For eight heavenly weeks every summer, for audience and students alike, music’s big picture keeps clicking into place.

Calling All Women in the Military


While women have always participated in wartime efforts, prior to the Korean War they were not allowed to serve as regular members of the armed forces — except for nurses — during peacetime. In 1948, however, President Truman signed the Women’s Armed Services SKY HIGH: S.B.’S Carol Brinton SelIntegration Act, which allowed fridge (pictured) was one of only females to retain permanent 1,102 women to fly U.S. military military positions. Nowadays, aircraft during WWII. women hold myriad ranks and roles in the U.S. military alongside their male counterparts. Each year, Santa Barbara’s Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation, which was founded in 2003, holds an event in celebration of our soldiers. Produced by boardmember Marilyn Gilbert, this year’s theme is “Honoring Women in the Military” and will be a musical tribute featuring a full orchestra, the Santa Barbara Choral Society, and bagpipers. Gilbert is currently looking to have as many area female soldiers attend as possible. “My idea is to have a phalanx of women march up the center aisle of the First Presbyterian Church to kick off the concert this year,” she said. “It’s time to honor the ‘silent majority’ and thank them for their service to this country.” The event takes place Sunday, November 9, 3 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 21 East Constance Avenue. If you are a veteran or currently in active duty or know a woman who is, pass this opportunity on to her. All veterans and current military personnel are invited to attend free of charge.

In addition to selling paintings at the Sunday Arts & Crafts Show, Jabbari paints frescoes and murals on walls and ceilings of S.B. homes. “I came here for vacation and then ripped up my return ticket. I just couldn’t leave,” he added.


In 2009, an estimated 2.5 million people filled the streets of São Paulo, Brazil, to participate in the city’s annual Gay Pride Parade. While Santa Barbara doesn’t boast those kinds of numbers (thank the heavens), our fair city’s Pacific Pride Foundation (PPF) still puts on great events annually in celebration of gay pride. And this year is no exception. The main attraction is the daylong Pride Festival, which offers entertainment, eats, and education. Performers include YouTube sensation Cazwell, who describes himself as sounding like “Biggie Smalls ate Donna Summer for breakfast”; Morgan McMichaels, a popular drag performer who was in the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race reality television competition; and Lunden Reign, a rising L.A.-based rock band who recently

completed their first full-length album, American Stranger. The day also includes a dog show, Put Your Paws Up, in which folks dress up their four-leggeds in rainbow garb and have the pooches show their best tricks; performances by area talent including Kat Devlin, S.B. Drag Divas, 2014’s Queen of Pride Azara Sapphire, and Technical Difficulties; and food trucks, a beer-and-wine garden, dance tent, game area, merchants, and a mobile testing unit where PPF’s Community Health Outreach Workers will administer free, anonymous HIV and hepatitis C tests (11 a.m. - 4 p.m.). Founded in 1976, the Pacific Pride Foundation’s mission is “to offer comprehensive health and social services, counseling, care, education and advocacy to anyone at risk for, infected with or affected by HIV/ AIDS; and provide sociocultural services sensitive to the needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.” The festival takes place Saturday, July 12, noon-7 p.m., at Leadbetter Beach.

S.B. Track Club Stars Score Big in the Heptathlon and Decathlon at the U.S.A. Track & Field Championships


by John Zant



osh Priester had such faith in Barbara Nwaba’s potential in the heptathlon that he quit

his job as associate director of track and field at UCSB and launched a nonprofit program to train post-graduate female athletes, the focal trainee being Nwaba. It was called the Women’s Athletic Performance Foundation (WAPF). Nwaba was coming off a fifth-place finish in the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials and had placed second in the NCAA Championships as a UCSB senior. Her score of 5,986 points was oh-so-close to the 6,000-point milestone that is the equivalent of a .300 major-league batting average, marking her as a big-time performer. But in its inaugural season, the WAPF’s star spent most of her time in physical therapy to treat tendinitis in her left knee. For several months, she underwent something called the Graston Technique, whereby a steel bar was pressed down on the inflamed tissues.“It was painful,” she said. Entering 2014, Nwaba had a new lease on health, and the WAPF had taken on a new public name: The Santa Barbara Track Club (SBTC). “Nobody could relate to the old name,” Priester said, “and now people can see it’s from our community.” A youth program is part of its mission. Nwaba welcomed the change. Tom FitzSimons, a decathlete from Mount St. Mary’s University in Maryland, joined the club. “Having guys train with us is a good thing,” Nwaba said. “Tom and I ran a lot of hills here [above the club’s training track at Westmont College] to get ready for the season.” At last month’s U.S.A. Track & Field Championships in Sacramento, the fledgling SBTC put two athletes on the podium — Nwaba, second in the heptathlon, and FitzSimons, third in the decathlon. Nwaba, who achieved a breakthrough score of 6,043 points at Azusa Pacific in April, bounced her personal best to 6,307 at the nationals. She is now the 14th best American performer since the seven-event heptathlon made its debut in 1984. Sharon DayMonroe, a two-time Olympian, outscored her in Sacramento, but not by a whole lot (6,470). Nwaba made significant improvements in the shot put (478½), long jump (199), and javelin throw (1436). “Not being able to compete last year was hard,” Nwaba said. “I would have been discouraged if it wasn’t for my coach keeping my eyes on the prize — the real goal, 2016 [the Rio de Janeiro Olympics]. That’s what I’m fighting for.” Priester’s belief in her has been validated.“Josh was not so much surprised as relieved,” said Cody Fleming, a UCSB coach who is helping out with the SBTC. “Barbara was this hurricane waiting to happen.” FitzSimons vaulted to third place in the decathlon by winning the final 1,500-meter race. His score was 7,645. Both he and Nwaba will compete in the Thorpe Cup, a multi-event competition between U.S. and German athletes, on July 26-27 in Marburg, Germany. Finishing sixth in the U.S.A. decathlon was Dos Pueblos High graduate J. Patrick Smith, who capped his collegiate career at Chico State in May by winning his third consecutive NCAA Division II title. Smith was named the Chico Sportsperson of the Year. UCLA-bound Stamatia Scarvelis ended a long season, during which the Dos Pueblos senior won her third state shot-put title, by placing fourth in the shot and seventh in the discus at the U.S.A. Junior Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

NO MAGIC WONDO: Mike Wondolowski’s

scream of joy might have traveled from Brazil to Santa Barbara if his nephew had put a point-blank shot into the net in the waning seconds of a scoreless draw between the U.S. and Belgium during the World Cup knockout round. Alas, Chris “Wondo” Wondolowski, trying to lift the ball over the Belgian goalkeeper, made like an NFL kicker and sent the ball over the crossbar. After Belgium won in overtime, 2-1, Chris sent out a sad tweet: “I’m gutted to have let down everyone but especially my teammates.” Thanks to the heroic efforts of goalkeeper Tim Howard, the U.S. had a chance to steal the game from a superior Belgian team when Coach Jürgen Klinsmann called on Wondo, known for his knack of eluding defenders by making well-timed runs — like the one that placed him in front of the goal during stoppage time. “Everything was set up for the moment,” Mike said.“But then sport collided with the Hollywood script. … The tiny difference between Chris’s shot going over the crossbar versus finding the back of the net is the difference between the U.S. winning with Chris being a national hero and the U.S. losing in extra time. That type of wild swing is so often the case in sports.” He noted that Chris did everything else right during his time on the pitch, “but his inability to finish on that one touch is what defined his World Cup. That is really tough.” A comment on social media compared Wondo to Bill Buckner (tricky little grounder, 1986 World Series). Buckner was a fine ballplayer, and Wondolowski is back with the San Jose Earthquakes, hoping to continue racking up goals in Major League Soccer. He added something to his tweet: “I know this will make me stronger.” For more sports, including a weekly highlight schedule, see

ay what you will about Ringo Starr — the man keeps some pretty solid company. And we’re not just talking about John, Paul, and George. This weekend, the former Beatle, multi-Grammy Award winner, and all-around cultural icon takes the stage at the Santa Barbara Bowl, and the backing band he’s bringing with him is worth the cost of admission alone. Now in its 13th iteration, Ringo’s All Starr Band includes everyone from Toto’s Steve Lukather to Journey’s Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren to Warren Ham, and Mr. Mister’s Richard Page to Spinal Tap’s Gregg Bissonette. So, we figured, why not prep with a crash course in rock ’n’ roll legacies? Let’s start with Lukather. As the axeman for Toto, he’s penned some of the most recognizable (and epic) hooks in American rock history (“Hold the Line,” “I Won’t Hold You Back”), but he’s also carved out an earnest little solo career for himself that includes eight shred-tastic full-length albums. As for Rolie, the discography stands for itself. The first (and unarguably best) Journey frontman carried the torch long before the “Wheel in the Sky” started turning and helped to deliver some of the most inspired jazz-rock of the late ’70s. (See 1975’s “Topaz” for a psychotropic intro.) He also can boast “founding member of Santana” on his résumé. With Ringo, he’ll hold down keys, organs, and vox. That leads us to Rundgren, the bonafide black sheep of the All Starr family. Sure, he gave us “Bang the Drum All Day” and “Can We Still Be Friends?,” but dig around a little and you’ll find a psychedelic wonderland of deep cuts with Utopia and Nazz, not to mention one of the most prolific outputs of the 20th century. Richard Page is holding down bass for Starr but will also surely be throwing around some

of those big, yacht-rock-y yelps. As the singer for smooth rockers Mr. Mister, he may very well be ambassador of the adult-contemporary dial, but he’s also the guy that famously turned down offers to front both Chicago and Toto before hitting it big. A man of many hats, Ham is playing triple duty as saxophonist, keyboardist, and percussionist in the All Starrs and brings with him a wealth of experience in the hired-gun seat; he’s toured with everyone from Kansas to Cher to Frankie Avalon. He also moonlighted in the short-lived but hard-rocking ’70s act Bloodrock.

STUDDED: Ringo Starr’s Al All Starr Band is (from left) Richard Page, Steve Lukat Lukather, Starr, Todd Rundgren, Gregg Bissonette, and Gregg Gre Rolie.

Last but not least, there’s Bissonette. An adept jazz and rock drummer, Bissonette has sat behind the kit for Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and, perhaps most memorably, Spinal Tap. He also wins our award for Best Drum Teacher Ever, thanks to three howto vids he self-released in the early ’90s. Apparently, practice makes perfect, and Ringo’s setup only serves to drive that point home.

Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band play the Santa Barbara Bowl on Saturday, July 12, at 7 p.m. Call 962-7411 or visit sbbowl .com for tickets and info. — Aly Comingore

DUB THOMPSON 9 SONGS First impressions are an interesting thing. They’ree set based on many factors, some significant, some less so. Sometimes they can be accurate, but the hazy reggae-tinged imagery that might be swirling through your mind upon hearing the name Dub Thompson would perhaps prove less so. Dub Thompson, at its core, is made up of twoo 19-year-olds from Agoura Hills, Matt Pulos andd Evan Laffer. Their music, while undeniably owingg something to the dub/reggae aesthetic, oftenn veers more in the direction of some sort of lo-fi fi psych/indie stew — think Wooden Indian Buriall Ground mixed with a kind of schizophrenic, messyy form of new wave. Fittingly containing only eightt songs (including one named “ Songs”),  Songss is a collection of music pulsating with ideas andd surprises. Recorded by Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado inn a rented house in Indiana, it runs the gamut from Casio-pop-meets-reggae (“No Time”) to a slowly decaying synth part that sounds like something out of a dying video game (“Dograces”) to a noisy, Unwound-style freakout (“Pterodactyls”) and all kinds of places in between. At times jarring but

always cohesive,  Songs seems bound by a unifying aesthetic: messy, faded psychedelia driven by gritty drums and hyperactive, atonal guitar work, with a touch of synths here and there. In a sentence, it’s lo-fi garage-psych-groove weirdness, but in the best of ways. —Lawrence Moody

FUNNY OR DIE Arsenic and Old Lace has 14 characters, and three SBCC THEATRE of them are serial killGROUP PRESENTS ers. That might not seem like an obvious starting point for comedy, but this classic American play, which was written in 1939 and first produced in 1941, has become one of the stage’s most enduring and even beloved properties, thanks to the dark humor of little old ladies who poison their boarders and the long-suffering main character, drama critic Mortimer Brewster. Just how long suffering is he? Played by Jay Carlander in the Theatre Group at Santa Barbara City College’s new production that opens this weekend, Mortimer is, according to director Katie Laris, “like Job. Insanity and murder are at the core of his family life, but he’s got to play it all as a farce.” Laris went on to praise Carlander for his natural grace onstage, citing not only his “great comic timing” but also the fact that he “moves so well” as two of the factors that led her to cast him in the central part. With Out of the Box impresario and fine actress Samantha Eve cast as his love interest, Carlander’s Mortimer should have plenty of motivation to keep his homicidal siblings in check. The play’s author, Joseph Kesselring, originally conceived of the premise for Arsenic and Old Lace as a gothic tragedy, but his producers wisely advised him to court a Broadway audience that enjoyed the combination of wacky characters and wisecracks. Some of the gothic elements were retained — horror movie staple Boris Karloff played the serialkilling brother in the original production — but the playwright successfully added a dazzling layer of rapid-fire quips to the proceedings, thereby inventing an entire kooky genre: screwball noir. Arsenic and Old Lace will be at Garvin Theatre through July 26, Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. The July 10 performance is a preview, and the Sunday, July 13, performance will be live-captioned for the hearing-impaired.

rlando — isn’t that the Virginia Woolf novel about some kind of gender switch?” That’s what I asked Mary Plant-Thomas, who is directing the Elements Theatre Collective’s upcoming production of Orlando, which has been adapted for the stage by playwright Sarah Ruhl. “Orlando is a man,” she told me, “until he turns 30 and becomes a woman.” So I was right? “Kind of, but I prefer to look at it as a three-part sequence in which Orlando begins as a man, learns what it is to live as a woman, and in the end becomes a person,” said Plant-Thomas, neatly inserting the missing link between mere gender switching and the universality that’s at the heart of Woolf’s appeal. by Charles Donelan And how will that appeal, which is tied in with Woolf’s uncanny ability to get inside the heads of her characters, translate to the stage, where so much must be communicated by what’s on the surface? After all, the biggest problem with dramatizing Orlando — one even more challenging than having the same actor play two different genders — is that the original text is made up primarily of narration not dialogue. Ruhl’s brilliant solution borrows equally from the conventions of ancient Greek tragedy and the excitement of improvisational comedy. Rather than removing Woolf’s narration and replacing it with made-up dialogue, Ruhl has simply transferred whole chunks of the narrator’s prose into the joint custody of a flexible-sized chorus. “There can be anywhere from three to 10 chorus members, and they can be of any gender,” said Plant-Thomas, adding that Ruhl’s decision to leave this up to each individual production indicated the playwright’s intent that the show “not be done in the same way every time.” Rehearsing the chorus, which in this production will be played by Rob Grayson, Stephanie Farnum, and Erika Leachman, thus becomes a complex process, as each passage involves deciding where and when to change voices. The chorus members must each play several other roles, as well, and even when they stand together, they like to break their narrative speeches apart, sometimes into fragments as small as single words. It’s this dynamic byplay that reintroduces Woolf’s teasing, satirical tone. Morgan Altenhoff rounds out the supporting cast as Sasha, Orlando’s Russian princess love interest from when he was a man back in the 17th century. Orlando will be played by the director’s real-life sister, Tess Plant-Thomas, who auditioned just like everyone else for the chance to become a man, then a woman, and then a person, all while changing clothes onstage and wearing lots of Elizabethan garb. “I didn’t even know she would be on the West Coast when we scheduled the show,” said Mary Plant-Thomas, the Where and when to see Orlando: director, adding that she’s delighted Java Station: July 11-12. 8pm. with the way that Tess has been Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara: bearing up under the pressure of July 13. 8pm. rehearsals.

Comedy Classics of the Silent Era

The Freshman Harold Lloyd’s biggest box-office hit was this silent comedy gem, featuring the bespectacled everyman at his eager best as a naive new college student.

STORM THE BARN, ER, STAGE: Erland headlines an evening of Santa Barbara– born country and Americana this Sunday at the Lobero Theatre.



here’s a reason we call it the Historic Lobero Theatre. The 140-year-old venue, which spent the better part of last year getting a $6.25 million facelift, is considered one of the best concert spaces on the West Coast. With a modest 600 seats, it’s housed its fair share of big-name rock acts, from Jackson Browne and David Crosby to The Avett Brothers and the Smashing Pumpkins. Like our beloved Santa Barbara Bowl, it’s a venue that means more than its capacity numbers — it’s a place to which musicians want to return. In that regard, it makes sense that the Lobero rarely hosts nights devoted to Santa Barbara bands. Between its seasonal series obligations and the high demand from touring artists, the Lobero’s stage remains a sort of Holy Grail for  players, a stage that young musicians aspire to conquer. And this weekend, six Santa Barbara acts are going to make that grand ascent. The occasion: Americana Alive, a night-long, by Aly Comingore festival-style concert meant to highlight and celebrate the richness of the S.B. folk rock scene. Spearheaded by area acts Erland and Doublewide Kings, Americana Alive’s bill is boasting sets from Omar Velasco, The Kinds, Bear Erickson, and Haddon Cord, as well as music video screenings and nonprofit partnerships with both Santa Barbara Channelkeeper and Blue Ocean Sciences. And, according to Erland frontman Erland Wanberg, it’s all about uniting around the music. “It’s definitely something that’s programmed by the artists to bring the scene together,” he said of Americana Alive’s creation. “We’re all friends with each other, and we figured to get together for one big night, it was worth it to try and do something new and big, to go for the Lobero.” Thanks in large part to the long-running Sings Like Hell series, the Lobero has become a mecca of sorts for folk and alt-country music, and Sunday’s lineup is a great testament to the genre’s growing muscle here at home. Since forming in 2011, Erland has nicely straddled the line between pastoral folk rock and toetapping pop, mixing dusty ballads with the kind of upbeat, open-road anthems that California’s folk rock scene was built on. In recent years, the guys (named Wanberg, bassist Mike Mooneyham, guitarist Marko Srdanov, and drummer Nate Keezer) have embarked on multiple U.S. tours, as well as self-funded and self-released a debut album, 2013’s shimmering On Our Side. As for Velasco, the onetime S.B. staple now calls L.A. home but still holds a dear place in our hearts. In recent months, the singer, songwriter, and touring guitarist for Jonathan Wilson’s band has been hard at work on his long-awaited debut, which is now in the final stages. Produced by Wilson and loosely inspired by the music and people Velasco has encountered over the past three years, the forthcoming record is both infectious and introspective, calling to mind AM radio staples, as well as the countrified rock of Jackson Browne’s early catalog. Elsewhere in the night, The Kinds and Cord will hold it down for the ladies, thanks to two wonderfully divergent and equally mighty guitar-toting female voices. Meanwhile, Doublewide Kings play a strand of Americana that lies close to the canon; the band cites The Allman Brothers and Van Morrison as kindred spirits. But it’s Erickson who’s acting as the evening’s glue. A multiinstrumentalist and Santa Ynez–bound production wizard, he’s worked with almost all the acts on the bill, and the chance to see him on a stage as illustrious as the Lobero’s seems both extraordinary and long overdue. But, then again, maybe that’s the point.



Americana Alive kicks off at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.) on Sunday, July 13, at 6 p.m. For tickets and info, call 963-0761 or visit

Bob Weir and RatDog. At the Santa Barbara Bowl, Thursday, July 3. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino



JERRY’S KIDS mong its many unexpected pleasures, apparently the jam-band show is a great way to muster Independence Day spirit. (And you thought it was the Beach Boys.) Thursday at the Bowl looked a lot like a sunshine daydream, with people from most of the crazy American stripes. There were black, JAM ON, AMERICA: Bob Weir led the charge white, and Asian, original and during last week’s evening-length ode to the neo-hippie chicks, biker famjam band at the S.B. Bowl. ilies, bros, successful realtors, and even a professional athlete.“Bill Walton is in the house,” said the frat-looking chain-toker seated behind me. And indeed, there was the counter culture’s favorite seven-foot hoopster, standing near the mixing board in longitudinal splendor, sporting a euphoric grin throughout the five-hour-long performance. Opener Chris Robinson came out barefooted and lyrically voiced, serving up what he calls “farm-to-table psychedelia.” The set consisted of some preliminary loosening-up exercises, ranging from “Try Rock & Roll” to the gorgeous morphing “Vibration & Light Suite.” Like most great jam bands, the Brotherhood understands the free-form lead-in but rarely knows how to end. Great riffs too often turn into an instrumental form of scat singing. The same problem plagues Bob Weir’s post-Dead band. But Weir has extraordinary assets to match the dimensions of his own long, strange stage experience. Last Thursday, the show was stolen by newish guitarist Steve Kimock, who at times trance-channeled Jerry Garcia’s light, perfect tone and thundering pedal-less wah-wah. His guitar laughed and screamed. To add to the homegrown splendor, Weir incorporated Ventura violinist Phil Salazar, who never met a tune he couldn’t instantly enhance. The evening built slowly to a combo of “Shake It Sugaree” and “Deal,” and the second set hit awe-inspiring pay dirt with “DarkStar.” Beauty is hard, said Ezra Pound, but it always seemed like the hippie ethos was meant to disprove that notion. When noodling, hacking, and riffing connects in a long act that mixes dedication and faith, it often creates something bigger than the raffish parts. If that’s not a working definition of these United ■ States, it’s at least something fine to celebrate.


The Knocks. At SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, Wednesday, July 2. Reviewed by Aly Comingore


n 2014, music fans have reached some important self-evident truths. One: No

one wants to watch you play your MacBook Air. Two: Throw enough bass on the problem and even that barely drunk girl in the back of the room will let loose. Three: When wielding a vocoder, tread lightly. But on Wednesday night at SOhO, we barely drunk girls were deprived of the bass and, in turn, had to endure the type of performance that made us draw up the aforementioned truths in the first place. The Knocks are two vaguely hip looking kids from Brooklyn. They make some mean remixes, pen a decent hook, and can probably produce the hell out of a pop track. They’re also apparently pretty adept at surrounding themselves with pricey gear and throwing their voices through a pitch shift.

My issue with The Knocks (and the 5,000 other bands who are trying to make this version of live electronic music work) is not the use of backing tracks and effects pedals — it’s the sheer quantity of the ones they’re using. Yes, I get that there’s no way two guys can manually reproduce a song with 25 tracks. But rethink it. Reinvent it. Break it down and put it back together. Don’t ask kids to spend $15 to watch you hit a trigger, wear a guitar, and dance to your own songs.

Yes, the youths of Santa Barbara ate it up and got down and even went so far as to crowd surf through Wednesday’s show. But I’m guessing most of them ■ were a little more than barely drunk.

SURVIVE STYLE 5: L.A. hip-hop group Jurassic 5 celebrates 20 years of music making with a reunion tour that rolls into S.B. on Sunday, July 13.

MOUTHING OFF: Reunions are a funny thing. On the social front, they might be

the only encounter more horrifying than a blind date. And in the artistic world, they tend to waffle between “revelatory” and “train wreck.” In fact, hip-hop circles may be the only place where the word “reunion” is greeted with exhilaration rather than primal fear. In the past few years, acts like Wu-Tang Clan and OutKast have elevated the hip-hop remeeting to festival headliner heights and delivered the performances to back it up. This Sunday, the Santa Barbara Bowl plays host to Jurassic ’s 20th anniversary Word of Mouth Reunion Tour, featuring the group’s six original members (Akil, Zaakir, Marc , DJ Nu-Mark, Chali na, and Cut Chemist), and like those that came before it, I’m betting it’s gonna be a spectacle. Yes, the group has a new single (produced by Heavy D, no less!), but the real draw comes in J’s classically jazzy SoCal summer jams, à la “Concrete Schoolyard,” “Action Satisfaction,” and “What’s Golden.” The show starts at 6 p.m. with equally must-see openers Dilated Peoples and Beat Junkies. Call 962-7411 or visit for tickets and info. BRING US YOUR BANDS: That’s right, hungry music makers. It’s officially time to submit your stuff for our  Santa Barbara Music Issue. The yearly ode to all that is good in the  music scene hits newsstands on Thursday, October 9, but before that happens, we want to hear from you. If you’re a music maker currently living in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, or Ventura County, we’d like to know about it and (most importantly) listen to your stuff. In our attempt to find the newest, best, and brightest musical acts on the South Coast, we’re opening up our inboxes to all the Bandcamp, SoundCloud, and Facebook links you can toss our way. In short, if you or your band is interested in being featured, or you know someone who you think deserves a shout, drop us a line at bands@ We’ll be waiting, and incessantly checking our email, from now through September 26, so don’t delay! LOOKING AHEAD: And while we’re on the subject of fall music offerings, let’s give a shout to all the good that is headed our way come autumn. Last week, New Noise Santa Barbara officially announced the 2014 New Noise Music Conference & Festival, which takes over the town October 15-19. While the lineup has yet to leak, the powers that be are already boasting more than 50 bands over the fest’s four days, as well as industry speakers, panel discussions, workshops, and the return of the New Noise Block Party, which last year gave us sisters Haim. In the Funk Zone. Before the sun even went down. New announcements continued to spill in last week, too, including S.B. tour stops for indie anthem makers Bad Suns (Aug. 15, at Velvet Jones), psych garage noodlers Together Pangea (Aug. 24, at Velvet Jones), smooth talking new waver Twin Shadow (Oct. 7, at SOhO), and icy-cool electronic popsters Poliça (Oct. 15, at SOhO). The end of summer never looked so good. AND THE KITCHEN SINK: But before we get too ahead of ourselves, I’m setting my sights on the Piano Kitchen this Saturday, July 12, where a lucky few can catch S.B. singer/songwriter Omar Velasco back on his home turf. The  native has been squirreled away down south of late, hard at work on a fresh set of new music. In between, he’s been touring the world (and holding down guitar duty) with Laurel Canyon legend Jonathan Wilson. Velasco will headline the fabled little spot on Rose Avenue alongside Kitchen founder Jim Connolly starting at 8 p.m. And, based on the little I’ve heard of the new stuff, we’re all in for a treat. ■ For show info, visit

MINI FESTIVAL by Aly Comingore and D.J. Palladino


t isn’t total world domination that Roger Durling craves, though an ever-expanding film fest is clearly part of his non-sinister, not-so-secret plans. Now nearing its third decade, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) continues to spread. “We always wanted to offer year-round programming,” Durling said last week, munching on smoked tofu at Zen Yai. “After we got the Showcase program off the ground [the Wednesday-night indie film screening series at Plaza de Oro Theatre], my dream was to offer a mini-festival every quarter, representing films from a single country.” Hence next week’s Wave Film Festival at the Riviera Theatre. “We want to do a different country for every Wave,” he explained. “French films just seemed like the most obvious place to start, mostly because they have such a wellestablished film industry and they make films in so many genres: thrillers, mysteries, romance.” “This will be our first summer Wave, but I think we can move to other seasons and other countries, too.” Those other countries include Italy and Russia, which also have productive, well-established industries, and will likely be the next waves, if this one breaks well. Durling got some help from the French Consulate and his many established connections to gather the films, and the quality of the movies is uniformly high — especially viewed in contrast with Hollywood’s last two months. So stay tuned because SBIFF now has its eyes on conquering the little box offices in town. It may not be total domination, but it’ll surely be a presence. “We’re happy to be the upstarts, launching a year-round show after 30 years of tried-and-true fests.” Here, we take a sneak peak at some of the films in SBIFF’s new wave.

Not My Type

PLAYING DEAD (Jefais le mort) Here’s a whodunit with a great premise that’s wrapped up in the detective. Take a two-bit actor whom every director in Paris is sick of arguing with. Now turn that cliché on its head, and you have the making of a terrific sleuth who questions every motive and stirs through unlikely scenarios for circumstances. The true genius of this film rests in the way a pain in the neck can become a perfect Sherlock.

the rest. Playing the Odd Couple card is no hat trick, but Belvaux’s characters ultimately redeem the tale. Case in point: Belgian bombshell Émilie Dequenne, who breathes new life into her role as a plucky, Jennifer Aniston–worshipping simpleton who steals our scholar’s heart. Combined with cinematographer Pierric Gantelmi d’Ille’s sprawling and unexpected wide-angle shots, Dequenne manages to elevate Not My Type from formulaic to sweetly off-kilter, making for a film that succeeds in spite of itself.


Playing Dead

François Damiens plays Jean Renault, which is the second sly film joke — people keep expecting him to be Jean Reno. Instead, he’s a balding twit, recently separated from his wife and inept but loving as a parent. We keep seeing different sides to our chief hammy protagonist, and it makes the whole film feel wonderfully unpredictable — a good thing for a mystery. And the scenery is beautiful, too. Director Jean-Paul Salomé nicely frames the crisp French Alps and the little village where a murder and a reenactment serve to upset the social order, spark some sexy time, and remind us that the French have a centuries-old reputation for logic and reason, which is only matched by their love of the absurd.

NOT MY TYPE (Pas son genre) Writer/director Lucas Belvaux is at the helm of this adorable but cliché-ridden rom-com romp, which finds a brooding Parisian philosopher (Loïc Corbery) relocating — against his will — to a tiny working-class town called Arras. Passionately opposed to leaving his cosmopolitan high life behind, our protagonist reluctantly settles into his new home, meets a beautiful but crass hairdresser, and, well, you can probably guess

Two couples, all best friends, settle into neighboring weekend homes in picturesque Normandy, where it’s all brunches and seaside walks — until real life worms its way in. Things start to unravel when Jean decides to leave his wife, Christine, and worsen when Christine begins to feel ostracized by her former BFFs, Sylvette and Ulrich. Passions flare, relationships clash, and somehow, the four friends find themselves among the rubble. Director Anne Villacèque steers what could have easily been a downer story into a good-humored, meaningful, and naturalistic examination of the ups, downs, and in-betweens of all relationships. Spurred on by a solid cast, Weekends in Normandy offers up some all-too-relatable characterizations that hit home in equal measure. Paired with a nifty chronological trick that has all the action taking place over weekends at the shore, it makes for an instinctive drama that looks and feels light and airy — a perfect blend for summer moviegoing.

part to Forestier, who delivers a tour de force performance that stays with you long after the credits role. On the other side of the camera, Quillévéré smartly maneuvers between past and present with breakneck precision, oftentimes hitting her audience broadside with a number of fast-paced (and intentionally disorienting) plot twists. That said, strong characters and even stronger performances are the glue that holds Quillévéré’s nonlinear tale together. A buzzworthy entry in 2013’s Cannes Film Festival, Suzanne easily lives up to the hype.

BROTHERHOOD OF TEARS (La confrérie des larmes)

Another mystery, but this time the broken-family sleuth is a disillusioned former cop, with a freespirited (or at least multicolor-coiffed) daughter who seems to be the only stable household member. When he’s offered a job that mixes zero responsibility with outlandish paychecks, it doesn’t take long for even our boozy hero to realize something is seriously amiss.

SUZANNE Katell Quillévéré is the young (34) director behind this stunning, raw, and emotionally rich offering. Sara Forestier plays Suzanne, a waifish, doe-eyed girl who gets knocked up by a mysterious lover and then decides to keep the child. With little support, the young single mom flounders through life and love as her sister and her father satellite around the proceedings. It may not offer much in the feel-good department, but Suzanne shines brightly in the wake of its brutal subject matter, thanks in no small

Brotherhood of Tears

Tears is stylishly shot and meanders around the globe like a Bond film. Maybe you won’t take extreme delight in the final revelations, but the film will get you thinking about responsibility and how money and power can create some seriously jaded humans. It may sound a little stiff, but it’s intriguingly paced and far better than any film Luc Besson made in the last 10 years. ■ July 10, 2014

THE FIRST TIME Begin Again. Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, and Adam Levine star in a film written and directed by John Carney. Reviewed by Kit Steinkellner


f you’re a fan of writer/director John Carney, it’s hard not to go into Begin Again with sky-high expectations. The filmmaker’s most well-known feature, the Academy Award–winning Irish movie musical Once, was one of the most surprising hits of the last several years: a cast that featured no movie stars, a musical that got along just fine without entire-cast dance numbers, and a film that broke a dozen conventional narrative rules, did not end happily, and still managed to be one of the most satisfying cinematic romances of the 2000s. Begin Again immediately differentiates itself from its elder sibling with its undeniable star power. Keira Knightley plays Greta, a talented British singer/songwriter obsessed with authenticity, who moves to America with her rising star of a singer/songwriter American boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine). As with most relationships between civilians and rock stars, theirs doesn’t work out, and in the wake of their breakup, Greta immediately makes plans to return to the U.K. Her return trip is derailed by Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a once great, now disgraced record producer who chances upon Greta’s open-mike performance on her last night in town, falls for her music, and convinces her to stay in New York for the summer and let him produce her album. When Dan has trouble drumming up funding, the two get scrappy: hiring student musicians and making the streets of New York their recording studio. Begin Again’s cast is certainly more Hollywood than the unknowns of Once, but it’s a Hollywood cast that works. Ruffalo does his best work in years, Knightley does her best work possibly ever, and Levine proves that he’s not just a rock star but a veritable movie star, as well. Begin

STREET BEAT: A washed-up music exec (Mark Ruffalo) teams up with a young singer/songwriter (Keira Knightley) to cut an album on the streets of N.Y.C. in Begin Again.

Again presents itself as a more-polished version of its gritty predecessor, but just because it boasts more gloss doesn’t mean it lacks true grit; this is a film uninterested in conventional plotting or tidy endings. Rather, its goal seems to be to show the transformative power of music in the lives of its characters, people whose lives desperately need transforming. It might not reach the highest heights of Once, but it still remains one of the most soul-stirring ■ major releases of this year.

Tammy. Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, and Kathy Bates star in a film written by McCarthy and Ben Falcone and directed by Falcone.


Reviewed by D.J. Palladino



elissa McCarthy had a 15-year career before Bridesmaids made her bankable as a kind of female Lord of Misrule. She got work, but hopped from sitcoms to movies like The Back-up Plan without much notice. And now that McCarthy is a real box-office draw, everybody expects her to become a cross between John Candy and Gracie Allen. What emerges from this film is the realization that these expectations will likely end badly. At some point, when the screenwriter and director of this movie (who happens to be McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone) contemplated what this vehicle might inevitably become, they had innumerable possibilities but only two choices — a great comedy or a moneymaking romp. They chose the latter. This is made most obvious by the two Disney deaths in the film. In the first scene, Tammy (McCarthy) hits a deer, and it lies on the road long enough for us to consider how an apparently callous girl in a comic film might handle the outcome. The deer jumps up and runs away, leaving Tammy a mess but off any moral hook. This easy slide resembles the rest of this lumpy road trip movie; it’s aimless and without consequence. Tammy avoids trouble by trying to be a sweet mess.

HIT THE ROAD: Melissa McCarthy stars in the uninspired road-trip comedy Tammy.

It also settles for the easy moral with a big helping of preachiness. Tammy and her bad grandma (Susan Sarandon, playing an oxycodone-dropping ex-hippie) light out into the wilderness, or at least Missouri, trying to put distance between themselves and their homegrown failures. Somehow the film ends up in a kind of lesbian paradise, where a number of intelligent women surrounding Kathy Bates have made a beautiful world of their own, while not rejecting the outside world — paradise regained. Make no mistake, though: The audience clapped at the end, and the film will surely make a lot of money. But it wasn’t made with commitment — it’s Thelma & Louise without the sting, and even with Sarandon in it, it’s not funny or smart ■ enough to talk about.

Reviewed on page 51.

(130 mins.; PG-13: intense scenes of sci-fi violence and action, brief strong language)

Deliver Us from Evil (118 mins.; R: bloody violence, grisly images, terror throughout, language)

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war to determine who will emerge as Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominant species.

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great recruiting ďŹ lm for the Catholic Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocational services. Sure, a lot of people may be put oďŹ&#x20AC; by all the bad press the clergy has earned in recent years, but did you know there are many diďŹ&#x20AC;erent opportunities for those seeking Holy Orders? Such as freelance demon-chasers and exorcists? Many of the openings happen to be in super-hip neighborhoods like Brooklyn, where this (supposedly real) roving demon dispatcher named Father Mendoza (Ă&#x2030;dgar Ramirez) tracks down and delivers oďŹ&#x20AC;ending hell spawn back where they belong. Actually, most of the story has to do with a police detective named Sarchie (Eric Bana), whose gut instincts about crimes and criminals turn out to be something like a demon magnet, exposing his partner and family to the supernatural ravings of Santino (played by intensely smart Sean Harris, who famously portrayed Ian Curtis in ď&#x2DC;şď&#x2DC;ź Hour Party People). The story manages to have it both ways, suggesting in opening scenes that the incidents are based on truth yet really bringing it together in all the predictable strands. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standard-issue exorcism movie stuďŹ&#x20AC;, too, including a look-underthe-bed scene and a donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-go-into-thebasement sequence. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reality! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a formula! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also not really very scary, until the end when all hell is unleashed in a cop interrogation cell, with a few minor jolts and cat squeals along the way. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun and boasts a lot of A-list performers in a B-movie pitch to bring the priesthood some much-needed glamour. (DJP)

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) Plaza de Oro 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 (2-D)/Fiesta 5 (2-D)

✯ Jersey Boys

(134 mins.; R: language


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

Wed.-Sun., July 16-20, Riviera

NOW SHOWING America (115 mins.; PG-13: violent images) This documentary imagines a world where America lost the Revolutionary War and never existed. Plaza de Oro

✯ 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 Chinese Puzzle (117 mins.; R: language, nudity, sexual content)

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,

Maleficent (97 mins.; PG: sequences of scary fantasy action and violence, frightening images) 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)

Fairview (2-D)/Fiesta 5 (2-D)

✯ Obvious Child

(84 mins.; R: language,

(805) 962-5339 • Just off Cabrillo Blvd. at East Beach •

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) Riviera (Through Tue., July 15) Transformers: Age of Extinction (157 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, brief innuendo)

A car mechanic and his daughter discover something that brings the Autobots and Decepticons down upon them. The story in this allegedly refreshed fourth chapter of the franchise is confusingly obtuse and only made worse by director Michael Bay’s masturbatory spectacle-making. (DJP)

something for everyone

Volunteers needed 682-1634





(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): What are the sources that heal and nourish you? Where do you go to renew yourself? Who are the people and animals that treat you the best and are most likely to boost your energy? I suggest that in the coming week you give special attention to these founts of love and beauty. Treat them with the respect and reverence they deserve. Express your gratitude and bestow blessings on them. It’s the perfect time for you to summon an outpouring of generosity as you feed what feeds you.

(June 21 - July 22): Since 1981, Chinese law has stipulated that every healthy person between the ages of 11 and 60 should plant three to five trees per year. This would be a favorable week for Chinese Cancerians to carry out that duty. For that matter, now is an excellent time for all of you Cancerians, regardless of where you live, to plant trees, sow seeds, launch projects, or do anything that animates your fertility and creativity. You now have more power than you can imagine to initiate long-term growth.



(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): This would be a fun time for you to brainstorm about everything you have never been and will never be. I encourage you to fantasize freely about the goals you don’t want to accomplish and the qualities you will not cultivate and the kind of people you will never seek out as allies. I believe this exercise will have a healthy effect on your future development. It will discipline your willpower and hone your motivation as it eliminates extraneous desires. It will imprint your deep self with a passionate clarification of pursuits that are wastes of your precious energy and valuable time.

(Apr. 20 - May 20): Why do birds fly? First, that’s how they look for and procure food. Second, when seasons change and the weather grows cooler, they may migrate to warmer areas where there’s more to eat. Third, zipping around in midair is how birds locate the materials they need to build nests. Fourth, it’s quite helpful in avoiding predators. But ornithologists believe there is yet another reason: Birds fly because it’s fun. In fact, up to 30 percent of the time, that’s their main motivation. In accordance with the astrological omens, Taurus, I invite you to match the birds’ standard in the coming weeks. See if you can play and enjoy yourself and have a good time at least 30 percent of the time.

(July 23 - Aug. 22): The weeks preceding your birthday are often an excellent time to engage the services of an exorcist. But there’s no need to hire a pricey priest with dubious credentials. I can offer you my expert demonbanishing skills free of charge. Let’s begin. I call on the spirits of the smart heroes you love best to be here with us right now. With the help of their inspirational power, I hereby dissolve any curse or spell that was ever placed on you, even if it was done inadvertently, and even if it was cast by yourself. Furthermore, the holy laughter I unleash as I carry out this purification serves to expunge any useless feelings, delusional desires, bad ideas, or irrelevant dreams you may have grown attached to. Make it so! Amen and hallelujah!

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Since 2008, Marvel Studios has produced nine movies based on characters from Marvel Comics. They’re doing well. The Avengers earned $1.5 billion, making it the third-highest-grossing film of all time. Iron Man 3 brought in over a billion dollars, too, and Thor: The Dark World grossed $644 million. Now Marvel executives are on schedule to release two movies every year through 2028. I’d love to see you be inspired by their example, Libra. Sound fun? To get started, dream and scheme about what you want to be doing in both the near future and the far future. Then formulate a flexible, invigorating master plan for the next 14 years.


(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Expect nothing even as you ask for everything. Rebel against tradition with witty compassion, not cynical rage. Is there a personal taboo that no longer needs to remain taboo? Break it with tender glee. Do something playful, even prankish, in a building that has felt oppressive to you. Everywhere you go, carry gifts with you just in case you encounter beautiful souls who aren’t lost in their own fantasies. You know that old niche you got stuck in as a way to preserve the peace? Escape it. At least for now, live without experts and without leaders — with no teachers other than what life brings you moment by moment.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Is there an important resource you don’t have in sufficient abundance? Are you suffering from the lack of an essential fuel or tool? I’m not talking about a luxury it would be pleasant to have or a status symbol that would titillate your ego. Rather, I’m referring to an indispensable asset you need to create the next chapter of your life story. Identify what this crucial treasure is, Gemini. Make or obtain an image of it, and put that image on a shrine in your sanctuary. Pray for it. Vividly visualize it for a few minutes several times a day. Sing little songs about it. The time has arrived to become much more serious and frisky about getting that valuable thing in your possession.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): You know what it’s like to get your mind blown. And I’m sure that on more than one occasion you have had your heart stolen. But I am curious, Virgo, about whether you have ever had your mind stolen or your heart blown. And I also wonder if two rare events like that have ever happened around the same time. I’m predicting a comparable milestone sometime in the next three weeks. Have no fear! The changes these epiphanies set in motion will ultimately bring you blessings. Odd and unexpected blessings, probably, but blessings nonetheless. P.S.: I’m sure you are familiar with the tingling sensation that wells up in your elbow when you hit your funny bone. Well, imagine a phenomena like that rippling through your soul.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): While in Chicago to do a series of shows, comedian Groucho Marx was invited to participate in a séance. He decided to attend even though he was skeptical of the proceedings. Incense was burning. The lights were dim. The trance medium worked herself into a supernatural state until finally she announced, “I am in touch with the Other Side. Does anyone have a question?” Groucho wasn’t shy. “What is the capital of North Dakota?” he asked. As amusing as his irreverence might be, I want to use it as an example of how you should NOT proceed in the coming week. If you get a chance to converse with higher powers or mysterious forces, I hope you seek information you would truly like to know.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): In one of her poems, Adrienne Rich addresses her lover: “That conversation we were always on the edge / of having, runs on in my head.” Is there a similar phenomenon in your own life, Sagittarius? Have you been longing to thoroughly discuss certain important issues with a loved one or ally but haven’t found a way to do so? If so, a breakthrough is potentially imminent. All of life will be conspiring for you to speak and hear the words that have not yet been spoken and heard but very much need to be.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Every year, the U.S. government spends $25,455 per capita on programs for senior citizens. Meanwhile, it allocates $3,822 for programs to help children. That’s only 15 percent as much as what the elders receive. In the coming weeks, Pisces, I believe your priorities should be reversed. Give the majority of your energy and time and money to the young and innocent parts of your life. Devote less attention to the older and more mature aspects. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you need to care intently for what’s growing most vigorously.

Homework: The media love bad news. They think it’s more interesting than good news. Is it? Send your interesting good news to

PROUD PAPAS: (from left) Store manager Asia Ashley, with coworkers Evan Chipman, Gabe Moreno, and James Taylor, stand inside the new Papa John’s Pizza at 5756 Calle Real in Goleta.


apa John’s Pizza has opened at  Calle Real in Goleta, immediately next door to Paloma Restaurant and Tequila Bar.“I have been local in Santa Barbara for more than 20 years now,” said Asia Ashley, one of the managers.“I think more people feel comfortable knowing that such a huge name like Papa John’s has local people working on the inside. These aren’t people who have come from other states or other places that we had to bring in to work here. They are all locally hired people. That’s usually a plus.” Papa John’s lets you chose your own ingredients or pick from specialty pizzas including The Works, The Meats, John’s Favorite, Garden Fresh, Spicy Italian, Spinach Alfredo, BBQ Chicken Bacon, Hawaiian BBQ Chicken, Tuscan Six Cheese, and Double Bacon 6-Cheese. Papa John’s owns or franchises approximately 4,200 restaurants in all 50 states and 35 countries. Visit or call 967-2421.

DEL TACO EYES SOUTH COAST: This just in from reader Paul: “Hi John, I talked to a worker at Del Taco in Ventura. She told me that two Del Tacos were coming to S.B. I didn’t get any details but thought I would mention it. One of the first groups I joined on Facebook when I signed up back in 2009 was named ‘I’d give my soul for a Del Taco in Santa Barbara.’ Yep, it actually existed.” MESA VERDE OPENS: Chef Greg Arnold has opened his plant-based (vegetarian) restaurant Mesa Verde at  Cliff Drive, the former home of Cliff ’s & Co.
