Congratulations to Dana Solomon, newly crowned winner of the first-ever Santa Barbara Independent Mustache Contest! The wonderful whiskers adorning Solomon’s upper lip have been cultivated over four years, first with waxes, but all natural more recently. “The handlebar curl on the ends is the natural result of a lot of fingertwisting,” Solomon said, “while scheming …” He claims that his magnificent mustache, thriving with the full support of his wife, Sadie, has become “part of the family” and will remain atop his lip indefinitely. “Also, I’m a little afraid of the tan line hiding underneath.”

News of the Week

JULY 17-24, 2014




BRINGING THE GAVEL DOWN: Judge Colleen Sterne (left) rejected the proposed gang injunction, concluding the nuisance posed by gangs was not sufficient that “law abiding people are forced to stay indoors.” MIDDLE: Defense attorney Tara Haaland-Ford. RIGHT: City Attorney Ariel Calonne.

Sterne Rebuke Judge Shoots Down Gang Injunction


BY N I C K W E L S H here were no ifs, ands, or buts in Judge Colleen Sterne’s unequivocal ruling that Santa Barbara city police and prosecutors failed to make the case necessary to support the gang injunction they’ve been seeking since March 11 three years ago. Sterne faulted the gangrelated data presented by various experts with the Police Department throughout the course of the 15-day trial — which officially began on Cinco de Mayo — as “flawed, unreliable, and incomplete.” Likewise, Sterne wrote in the 32-page opinion she released Monday afternoon that she regarded the prosecution’s expert witness — attorney Gregory Anderson from Fresno and author of many gang injunctions — as “unpersuasive” in his conclusion that Santa Barbara would benefit from an injunction. Gang injunctions, she noted, are “highly particular” to their locales, and Anderson was hampered by an “incomplete” understanding of Santa Barbara. As for the prosecution’s most dramatic witness, Arthur Nevarez — an ex-shot-caller with an Eastside gang whom prosecutors had graphically dubbed “Mister X” — Sterne was most outspokenly critical. Nevarez had testified that the Mexican Mafia’s influence on day-to-day gang activity in Santa Barbara had been growing, claiming at one point — in what Sterne described as “a rather gratuitous statement” — that “word went around the jail that things should lay low to let the gang injunction cool off.” Sterne noted that Nevarez — now serving a life sentence — had admitted he’d “manipulated the system” in getting assigned to County Jail and was seeking to strike a deal with authorities. She dismissed his testimony as “obviously selfserving,” adding, “He seemed highly interested in demonstrating his own self-importance and highly invested in his own notoriety and gang notoriety. The court questions his credibility.” Sterne readily acknowledged that Santa Barbara has rival criminal street gangs and that their behavior constitutes a genuine problem. But, she stressed, that behavior does not rise 10


july 24, 2014

to the level of “substantial and unreasonable nuisance,” which the law requires for purposes of imposing a gang injunction or carving out “safety zones,” in which those named would be barred from associating with one another, wearing certain clothes, hanging out in parks, or enjoying what would otherwise be constitutionally protected behavior. “There is no evidence that residents of the proposed Safety Zones in Santa Barbara are prisoners in their own homes, remain indoors at night, prevent their children from playing outside, or whose relatives and friends refuse to visit,” Sterne wrote in conclusion. Police and prosecutors, she said, failed to provide any witnesses to testify that they felt otherwise. By contrast, the team of defense attorneys representing those named in the injunction called four downtown residents — one a former gang member and now an activist fighting the injunction — who testified about the lack of fear they felt when walking about downtown. For Sterne, that absence of broader community fear proved central to her ruling. Yes, she acknowledged, gang members target one another for assault, mayhem, and, on occasion, murder, but the broader community is generally spared the collateral impact. Sterne also took exception to police claims that traditional law enforcement methods are inadequate to respond to the threat to public order posed by gangs. In fact, she argued that the success police have had combating gang violence has “thwarted” their desire for an injunction. Gang crime, Sterne wrote, composes a very small percentage of Santa Barbara’s total criminal activity and is much lower than in comparable cities. She was much impressed by the testimony of UCSB Professor Edwina Barvosa, the expert witness for the defense, who argued that gang injunctions typically have very limited and exceedingly short-term benefit. Barvosa warned that in some situations, gang injunctions can create “blow-back,” perpetuating an “us-versusthem” attitude between law enforcement and Latino communities. More than once, Sterne noted the lack of public input and community

buy-in before Police Chief Cam Sanchez, District Attorney Joyce Dudley, and Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider first announced they were pursuing the injunction. At that time, Sanchez said the injunction was targeting 30 adult gang members, whom he described as “the worst of the worst.” Just before trial, however, that number was reduced to only 11. But even that, Sterne ruled, was one too many. In the case of Francisco Anaya, Sterne said there was no “clear and convincing proof of current gang membership.” When the injunction was first proposed, Santa Barbara was coming off a wave of gang violence that left at least three noncombatants dead. Since then, the level of gang-related crime has abated substantially, and support within the City Council is far less robust than it first was. Holding up implementation has been a shifting team of defense attorneys, but always at the nucleus there was Tara Haaland-Ford and Steve Dunkle. “I’m elated. I’m floating,” said Haaland-Ford. “Maybe now, both sides can start working together and putting resources into programs that actually help.” She said she’d been notified by the American Civil Liberties Union that this is the first time the defense has prevailed against a proposed gang injunction anywhere in the United States. (Other key attorneys involved in the defense were Michael Hanley, William Makler, James Crowder, and Neil Levinson.) Mayor Schneider, who has taken considerable heat from her political base, commented, “I respect the court process. The City of Santa Barbara will continue to use every tool available to keep our residents and visitors safe while we consider the impacts and options of Judge Sterne’s ruling.” Senior prosecuting attorney Hilary Dozer, who did most of the heavy lifting in Sterne’s courtroom, said he got to present the best case he had in favor of the injunction. “She did a good job and a fair job,” he said of Sterne’s conduct of the trial.“Obviously I’m disappointed by her decision, but am I crying about it? Win, lose, or draw, we got to put on our case. ■ That’s all you can ask for.”

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

Authorities recovered the body of Isaiah Sanchez, 22, on Monday, about 100 yards from where he was last seen going underwater in Lake Cachuma on 7/11. Sanchez and another man had reportedly tried to swim to shore when their boat experienced engine problems. How and why Sanchez, of El Rio, died is still being investigated by the Sheriff’s Office. The man found dead on a bus bench on 7/15 has been identified as Paul William Elyanow, 46. His body was discovered at the Five Points Shopping Center after police received a call from the nearby Subway restaurant. Elyanow cohosted shows for KCSB 91.9 FM a few years ago and was fondly remembered as “Pauly” with a “great Bostonian accent.” Police said it appeared Elyanow died of “natural causes,” and the case has been forwarded to the Coroner’s Office for further review. Santa Barbara police have arrested two cousins — Juan Romero, 30, and Gabino Romero, 26 — for allegedly raping a 62-year-old homeless woman at knifepoint on East Beach on 7/16. According to police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood, the two men had spent the night before the incident drinking on Stearns Wharf and “discussed finding a homeless woman to sexually assault.” The victim reported the rape to the nearby DoubleTree Resort, and after officers responded, she was examined and put in touch with the Rape Crisis Center. Both men were booked at County Jail on $250,000 bail each. Questions remain about the massive fire that engulfed a UCSB housing construction site in the early hours of 7/4. There is little doubt that the fire was caused by an arsonist, but officials have yet to announce any results from a multiagency investigation. Cameras were on site at the time, and a neighbor reported witnessing a young white male fleeing the scene. In 2012, a university housing construction site on Phelps Road went up in flames; that blaze was also thought to be the work of an arsonist. Both developments faced considerable opposition. A UCSB professor accused in March of stealing and destroying an anti-abortionist activist’s sign — and leaving scratch marks on the activist in the process — is expected to enter no contest pleas to three misdemeanor charges this Thursday. Dr. Mireille Miller-Young will answer to counts of grand theft, vandalism, and battery, and she will likely be made to pay restitution, perform community service, and attend anger management courses. Fiesta may be a week away, but Santa Barbara police are already warning participants in the annual Fiesta Cruiser Run — an ad hoc and decidedly anarchistic celebration of twowheeled fun now entering its 35th year — that extra cops on patrol will be writing tickets. Last year, as many as 3,000 riders backed up traffic on State Street for as long as 10 minutes. About 20 extra officers will be on the street watching for cyclists running red lights (a $500 ticket) and blowing through stop signs (a $197 offense).


CITY Unless the City of Santa Barbara rescinds or significantly amends its “bubble ordinance” restricting free speech rights near the entrance of Planned Parenthood, churches, and medical clinics, Katie Short, legal director for the Life Legal Defense Foundation, said her organization would likely sue. Short said the city’s ordinance runs contrary to the recent Supreme Court ruling that stated a Massachusetts law requiring a 35-foot buffer between anti-abortion activists and clinic entrances is unconstitutional. City Attorney Ariel Calonne noted Santa Barbara’s eight-foot buffer had been approved by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in 1999. But Short argued any sidewalk counselor would have difficulty engaging in meaningful conversation at that distance. After roughly a year and a half, the foundationfunded nonprofit news website Mission & State will go quietly into that good night. Originally the brainchild of Santa Barbara News-Press refugees, the outlet was designed to focus on investigative pieces that would be published via existing publications. After its advisory board fired the editor, feeling that the site was on a financially unsustainable path and not living up to its mission, its fiscal agent, Santa Barbara Foundation, hatched a plan to hand over management to Noozhawk. However, after representatives of several media outlets (including The Santa Barbara Independent) said they could not collaborate with a competitor, that plan has been scrapped. More than $300,000 in unspent donations, out of $1 million total, will be returned, said Foundation President Ron Gallo in a letter.

COUNTY Santa Barbara County’s unemployment rate in June (5.4 percent) jumped slightly from May (5 percent) but showed a positive trend from June 2013 (6.8 percent), according to the county’s Workforce Investment Board. The jobless numbers put the county in a better position than the state (7.3 percent) and the country (6.3 percent), bringing the county’s total workforce to 212,200 people. The report showed growth in many fields — particularly in government, trade, personalcare aides, and veterinary technicians — but

some losses in construction, manufacturing, and hospitality. The cities of Lompoc, Guadalupe, and Santa Maria continue to suffer unemployment rates in the double digits. Drug giant Allergan — famous for Botox — will be shuttering its Goleta facility and axing 1,500 of its 11,600 positions system-wide, the company announced Monday. Some of the 300 Goleta employees will be transferred to Irvine headquarters, said spokesperson Bonnie Jacobs. Jacobs declined to comment on when the closure and layoffs will take place. Allergan outlined its decision in its second-quarter operating report, which noted “the strongest increase in absolute dollar sales in any quarter in our history” but cited an ongoing buyout battle with Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. The cuts will save Allergan up to $425 million next year. Despite the fears surrounding the county’s revision of the 10-year-old winery ordinance, only about 20 people — including three county planners and two photographers and reporters — showed up on 7/16 to make suggestions for the upcoming environmental impact report (EIR). Five neighbors spoke about negative impacts of wine industry growth (traffic, drunk driving, and impacts to deer, among others), and three speakers criticized definitions (particularly over what constitutes a “winery visitor”) and called proposed restrictions confusing and onerous. Those issues will be integrated into the EIR, and a draft is expected by summer’s end, when a new round of hearings will commence.

ENVIRONMENT Supervisor Salud Carbajal and 25 regional leaders from across the country gathered in Washington, D.C., in the final in-person meeting of a White House task force on national climatechange issues. How to recover after extreme weather events and make buildings less susceptible to damage were among the objectives, as well as addressing agriculture and adverse health effects, and assisting tribes. “We’ve identified a number of recommendations that [President Obama] can put in play and pursue,” Carbajal said. “I think it is historic, and I think it’s going to be substantive.” The final recommendations will be made in the fall. ■

Water Guzzlers’ Gulch

With meteorologists reporting the hottest first six months in California’s recorded history, the State Water Control Board has put water guzzlers on alert that they face $500 fines if they continue to water excessively, hose down their cars on public streets, or douse their lawns during daylight hours. Exactly how this edict from will be enforced, however, remains an unresolved question for county water czar Tom Fayram, who said he wasn’t entirely clear which agencies would be charged with taking push to shove. “I’m not calling this a stunt,” he said of state board action. “I’d say they’re trying to up the ante.” That’s because efforts thus far to get state water customers to voluntarily cut back by 20 percent have yet to bear significant fruit. That, it appears, might be changing. City residents managed to cut consumption by 15 percent in the month of June after posting negligible reductions in the months prior. City attorney Ariel Calonne said the $500 fines do not apply in Santa Barbara, because the city has a state-approved water management plan. Still, he said, the city can and will impose fines of its own, some, he said, as high as $500. The city’s new water rates — charging disproportionately high rates to the biggest water users — went into effect July 1, and officials are hoping the anticipated sticker shock achieves further reductions. Montecito, home to some of the state’s most extravagant water consumers, has seen conservation cutbacks as high as 40 percent. As the drought intensifies, Santa Barbara’s Environmental Health department has seen a 100 percent increase in the number of well applications; 114 such applications were filed in the 12-month period leading up to June 2013. In the two years prior, there were 54, and in the year before those two, it was 41. The depth of these wells remains the subject of — Nick Welsh further inquiry, likewise the failure rate of these and existing wells.

The burning question of what to do about Isla Vista remained largely unanswered after a town hall forum at Santa Barbara Hillel on Monday night. At issue is the lack of governing power in the unincorporated college community made up of 23,000 residents and the more than 5,000 students who live on UCSB’s campus but often party in the college town. A fair amount of disagreement exists among involved players as to the kind of self-governing entity that could or even should be SPITBALLING: Town hall participants took turns proposing implemented, a topic that ways to give a voice to Isla Vista residents. dates back decades. During the forum — which was headed by UCSB Associated Students — representatives from the county, Santa Barbara and Goleta city officials, Isla Vista residents, and members of the faith community stood up to give their two cents. “Right now, [Associated Students] tries to represent [Isla Vista], but it only represents the 10,000 UCSB students,” said Jonathan Abboud, former student body president and UCSB graduate. Another few thousand residents attend SBCC. A representative from SBCC was missing from the discussion on Monday, a fact pointed out by Isla Vista Food Co-op representative Ashley Audycki, who likened the discussion to the market’s model: “We wanted selfgovernance over our food.” Talk about how to fix some of Isla Vista’s underlying issues first took center stage after the Deltopia riots in April, and university administrators who had historically turned a blind eye on the rambunctious town perked up. Gung-ho students and other activists want the self-governing plans to go as far as councils with taxing powers or even cityhood. But others are quick to point out that is an unlikely and expensive option. Several vouched for the midrange possibility of a Municipal Advisory Council, which the county and UCSB partially financially supported in the ’70s but pulled the money from in the ’80s. A host of tangible matters — sidewalks, lighting, fencing, and general community services — will continue to be hashed out aside from the self-government issue. Supervisor Doreen Farr, who represents Isla Vista, told the audience that regardless of any changes, the county would continue to cover social services like mental health. Abboud acknowledged Farr’s efforts to work with stakeholders but added that he had deferred grad school to stay in Isla Vista one more year to work on giving a voice to residents. — Kelsey Brugger “The more local you get, the better.”

Death Penalty Terminated

When federal Judge Cormac Carney ruled last week that California’s death penalty was unconstitutional because it was “so plagued by inordinate and unpredictable delay,” he would have found little in Santa Barbara’s death row population to contradict his finding. Currently, Santa Barbara has nine males on death row. Malcolm Robbins, convicted in 1983 of kidnapping, raping, and murdering a young Goleta boy on Father’s Day and then setting his body on fire, has the longest tenure. Joshua Miracle, who killed an associate by stabbing him 50 times after a three-day meth bender, is the most recent, having been sentenced in 2006. In between, four others were convicted in the 1980s, one in the ’90s, and one in 2001. Since assuming office, District Attorney Joyce Dudley — now entering her second term — has not sought the death penalty. In one case, her office withdrew a death penalty filing and replaced it with life without possibility of parole. In response to the federal ruling, Dudley agreed the state’s system is indeed dysfunctional and said the death penalty as practiced offers the victims only the illusion of closure. Although California has 900 inmates on death row, only 13 have been executed since the death penalty was reinstated in 1978. Judge Carney found the length of time required to execute the condemned “antithetical to any civilized notion of just punishment” and deprived the death penalty of any deterrent impact, let alone much retributive value. He found that the delays could not be blamed solely on inmates dragging out the process but on a wide array of systematic flaws. Santa Barbara’s top prosecutor said she couldn’t remember the last person from Santa Barbara executed on death row. In 1958, Elizabeth Duncan, a Santa Barbara resident, was sentenced to death for conspiring with two men — Augustine Baldonado and Luis Moya — to kill her pregnant daughter-in-law, of whom she was insanely jealous. But because the murder took place in Ventura County, Duncan — who was executed in August 1962 with her two accomplices — is listed as a Ventura case. She remains the last woman to be — Nick Welsh executed in California.

SWEET AND SOUR: The Santa Barbara Bicycle



Coalition celebrated the purchase of their Haley Street digs (shown here) while mourning the death of longtime bike advocate Ralph Fertig (inset).

Shifting into High Gear Bike Coalition Escrow Closes on Haley Street Digs as City Launches Bicycle Master Plan Waters, a hipster coffee shop and gathering place that doubles as a nighttime music venue. All this would be just another real estate transaction were it not for the Bicycle Coalition’s expanding profile and growing impact. When the organization started seven years ago, it was all volunteers with no paid staff and an annual budget of about $12,000. From the start, it sought to distance itself from cycling’s wealthier and more elitist trappings, embracing instead a very deliberate policy of multiculturalism. Executive Director Ed France is notably bilingual. As gas prices spiked, Santa Barbara workers looked for cheaper options. Demographers discovered to their considerable astonishment that as young millennials hit the magic age of 16, they were in no hurry to get their driver’s licenses. And as they’ve aged, this same demographic has proved notably less in a hurry to buy a car. In Santa Barbara, the annual Bike to Work Day — always a limited, eat-your-vegetables event in which participants were rewarded with power bars — gave way to the monthlong CycleMAYnia, replete with fashion shows, group rides, movies, beer fests, wine tastings, and even screenings of films known as bike porn. Lurking behind this change was an increase in the city’s bicycle-serving infrastructure. The number of striped bike lanes went from 13 in 1998 to 40 in 2012, and 50 new bike bollards were planted every year. Contrary to the insistent claims of the two anti-bike activists who compose Cars Are Basic, Santa Barbara bike numbers — while still low — have increased dramatically. According to the U.S. Census, nearly

7 percent of trips to and from work within city limits are taken by bike. Ten years ago, that percentage was 3.4. In number of bike commutes, Santa Barbara ranks third of all comparably sized cities within the United States and eighth for cities of any size. The bad news — as Omari Fuller, an organizer with the Bicycle Coalition, told the City Council last Tuesday night — is that car-bicycle collisions have spiked, as well. Fuller, like Ed France and Sam Franklin — a onetime elected official from the exceptionally bike-friendly city of Amsterdam — were on hand to urge the council to embrace an aggressive public outreach effort proposed by city traffic engineers as a prelude to rewriting the city’s Bicycle Master Plan, now 16 years old. After Bici moved out of La Casa de la Raza about 18 months ago, the group of more than 600 paid members caught the eye of Trek Bicycle executive John Burke, who, with his wife, had recently become a part-time resident of Santa Barbara. Trek is headquartered in Wisconsin, where Burke’s sister is now running for governor. Burke has made it his mission to spread the political gospel of commuter cycling. And he’s been willing to dig deep to fund advocates and lobbying efforts throughout the country. Given Santa Barbara’s obvious advantages for cycling, Burke asked why the city wasn’t more bike friendly and then helped underwrite the cost of paid organizers on the coalition’s staff to find the answer. When the League of American Bicyclists dispatched a team of experts to Santa Barbara to give the city a soup-to-nuts checkup for bicycle friendliness, it was Burke who PAU L WELLM AN FI LE PHOTO


BY N I C K W E L S H ust as the city has launched a major new bicycle planning initiative, the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition has sought to solidify its immediate future and longterm financial viability by purchasing the space it’s rented for the past 18 months on the  block of Haley Street. Without the property — home to the do-it-yourself repair and “thrift shop” run by Bici Centro as well as its headquarters — boardmember and longtime bike advocate Matt Dobberteen said the group would have been hard-pressed to find another space downtown within their financial grasp. “If we didn’t make this happen, seven years of hard work would have been over, the building would have gone dark, our employees laid off, and our programs canceled,” he said. After a mad scramble of fundraising to raise the $1.2 million asking price, the coalition closed escrow this Wednesday. The deadline was Friday.“We’re 10 feet in the air,” exclaimed the usually reserved and understated Dobberteen. Casting a pall on the celebratory spirit was the death of Ralph Fertig on Friday, a longtime bicycle advocate of such consistency, durability, and selflessness that his presence had achieved an almost geologic aspect. Unassuming but absolutely dogged, Fertig had made it his mission for more than 20 years to attend every transportation planning meeting to bear witness to the need for more space on the roads for bicycles. This perseverance — coupled with the intellectual honesty with which he made his case — made it impossible for decision makers to dismiss him out of hand, even when it would have been exceedingly convenient for them to do so. Fertig reportedly died of a stroke in Cottage Hospital after chemotherapy for a reoccurring cancer. A bike ride celebrating his life and contributions has been scheduled for August 2. Without Fertig’s spadework, it’s fair to say the Bicycle Coalition would not have evolved to a point where it could buy its own building, an accomplishment rare among Santa Barbara’s legion of nonprofits and advocacy organizations. Bici’s monthly payments will be roughly the same as the $3,000 it now pays in rent. The coalition also becomes landlord to Muddy

footed the bill. The League gave Santa Barbara a silver medal ranking but concluded much work needed to be done before the city could earn the gold. France and city traffic czar Rob Dayton, who embraces alternative transit strategies with a born-again zeal, sought to set the stage for the new Bicycle Master Plan by explaining that most of the easy accommodations had already been made. Last year, for example, Caltrans squeezed a long stretch of Cliff Drive down from four lanes to three and created new bike lanes, which, to date, have been met with broad acceptance. Likewise, a year ago, City Hall restriped Haley Street to create a new bike lane, which appears to have performed admirably. (That it happens to run right past the Bicyle Coalition headquarters is merely happy coincidence.) But the city’s network of bike lanes is filled with gaps and dead ends that leave car-phobic riders stranded. Replacing gaps with bike lanes will all but certainly require trade-offs: Some new lane space can come only at the cost of on-street parking. In recent years, questions about traffic policy have been the stuff of such intense political warfare that all sides still suffer from post-traumatic stress. Accordingly, Dayton and the city traffic planners are nervous about pushing beyond what the public will support. To that end, they’ve proposed a two-year outreach program involving neighborhood summits, stakeholder confabs, one-on-one interviews, and broader questionnaires. And that doesn’t include all the meetings with the Planning Commission, the Traffic and Circulation Committee, and the Downtown Parking Committee. For France and Dayton, this approach provides a much-needed venue for public education and lobbying.“The questions we are facing is how and how much,” said France. “To answer that, we have to think strategically, and by that I mean how does the bicycle fit into a systemwide transportation approach?” For a host of reasons, some councilmembers find Dayton’s proposal more exhausting than exhaustive. The pain remains fresh from the five years it took to complete the city’s general plan update and its attendant marathon filibuster sessions. Councilmember Dale Francisco — who once rode 13 miles to work daily — forecast the public process: Bike advocates would pack each and every gathering, and in the end, more bike lanes would be the resounding call to action. “I can tell you exactly what the conclusion will be right now,” he said, adding, “I can save you $100,000.” Francisco suggested City Hall would be better advised to spend $30,000 on a poll to get a broader sense of genuine community sentiment. The problem with that approach, said Mayor Helene Schneider, is that the purpose of community workshops is to achieve a clearer sense of what the options are and what the trade-offs might entail. That kind of either/or option, she said, cannot be easily compressed into a 10-minute telephone poll. Ultimately, the council voted 5-to-1 last week to initiate the public-outreach campaign to update the bicycle master plan. Francisco was the lone vote against, clarifying that he supported revising the plan but opposed the process. Full version at July 24, 2014

Mangy Dog or Dog in the Manger?

WHINEY FRIENDS AND INFLUENCING PEOPLE: It’s happening again. It always does.

The second someone starts spouting off how we ought to have district elections, someone else starts effluviating about the evil twins of “horse trading” and “logrolling.” Huh? I like to think I have a healthy appreciation of contemporary vices, but these two somehow flew under my radar. By implication and insinuation, logrolling and horse trading are incestuous cousins of “featherbedding,” which, by the sound of it, breeds bed bugs, lice, and other vermin that would chase the cruise ships out of Santa Barbara’s harbor so fast we could surf the wake. Merely to mention such practices (what is logrolling anyway?) is to win the argument that district elections are inherently venal, corrupt, and parochial. These practices are part and parcel of the ward system, which, we are told — and is sometimes the case — is dominated by good old boys in smoke-filled rooms seeking new ways to swap tit for tat and quid for quo, always at the expense of broader community interests. I bring this up because Santa Barbara is about to undergo one of those seismic shifts in how we elect our city councilmembers. We do this every 20-30 years, kind of like rearranging the furniture in hopes of making new friends and getting a life. District elections, we are told, is all but inevitable. That’s because attorney A. Barry Cappello has announced he will be suing the City of Santa Barbara in the next week or so on

the grounds that our current “at-large” system of elections is marred by “racial polarization,” and violates the state’s Voting Rights Act of 2001. A state expert on the subject hired by City Hall — Doug Johnson — told the council this Tuesday that just about anything violates the Voting Rights Act. If I heard Johnson right, even a city council with a majority of minority candidates could be found in violation of the Voting Rights Act. It’s one of those laws, he noted, that got passed late at night 40 minutes before the expiration of the legislative session by a governor under duress when no one was looking as part of some unseemly complicated political deal. The idea behind the bill was to make it easier for Latino and African American candidates to get elected to city councils that have historically been dominated by those of pale pigmentation despite the large numbers of registered minority voters. In order to successfully sue, an attorney need only demonstrate that minority and Anglo residents vote differently. That’s it. It doesn’t matter what drives that difference — overt racism or the happenstance of party affiliation — only that one exists. At times, Johnson noted, this can get a little weird. For example, when Abel Maldonado, a Republican Latino, ran for Lt. Governor against honky Democrat Gavin Newsom, it turned out Latino voters — loyal Democrats — voted overwhelmingly for Newsom. And white Republicans voted similarly for Maldonado. That’s racial polarization? Yes. And that may explain why not one city has prevailed

in fighting such lawsuits. It may explain also why 90 school districts and 20 community college districts have opted to switch election systems. Whether this bill actually delivers the ethnic diversity it promises I have my doubts. But undeniably, the results are — and will continue to be — interesting. In Modesto, Johnson noted, Latino voters wound up electing a grouchy white republican long active with the NRA, proving, I guess, maybe we can all get along after all. The punchline here is attorneys’ fees. Under the state law, the loser of such lawsuits has to pay the winner. Such cases — even with low-rent lawyers — are notoriously expensive. To date, losers have shelled out in excess of $8 million. But Cappello — who I suspect makes more in an hour than I make in a week — is anything but low-rent. Given that most of California’s 482 cities still have at-large election systems, I’d say he’s carving out a very sweet spot in what’s clearly a growth industry. Nor does it hurt that Cappello has the facts on his side. Latinos make up 38 percent of the city’s population and about 19 percent of its registered voting-age citizens. Since 1968 — when the current at-large system went into effect — five Latinos have been elected, two since 1997. In that time, one Asian-Pacific Islander also got elected; one African American was appointed to fill a vacancy. If the issue isn’t “all black-and-white”— as several councilmembers noted many times Tuesday — that’s because city councils over the past 40 years have been

almost exclusively white. If it’s preordained that City Hall is going to lose this one, then it would behoove the council to minimize the amount of money it will piss away in legal fees. Last I checked, Cappello does not qualify as a worthy charity. To that end, the council should beat Cappello to the punch and put the matter to city voters this November. Not surprisingly, the council — which has no district-election supporters — may have screwed itself. August 8 is, in fact, the real deadline for the council to get the county supervisors to put district election on the November ballot. But at a meeting in late May, Mayor Helene Schneider stated the deadline was June 24, which at that time could not possibly be met. The reasoning behind that mistake was that the county supervisors are taking a six-week summer vacation and won’t be available in August. But imagine explaining to voters — as one councilmember laughingly did —“Sorry, guys, we can’t have an election on how democracy works here because the supervisors are taking six weeks off.” As for the dreaded specter of “logrolling,” the actual practice dates back about 200 years to the time when neighbors used to help each other “roll” the trees they felled on their respective properties into the river — flowing conveniently nearby — and presumably off to market. In other words, it’s as corrupt, venal, and parochial as, well, a barn raising. In the meantime, see you at the hoedown. Be sure to wear underpants under your chaps. — Nick Welsh

Michael Matson Fessier

Michael Matson Fessier, Southern California writer, died on Sunday, June , . The cause of death was metastatic prostate cancer. He was . Mike, as he was known to his family, grew up exposed to the magic of the movie world in Hollywood. (His father Michael Fessier, had written and produced movies during the s and ‘s and then Television in the ‘s and ‘s.) He began writing as a youth and never stopped. Mike was never afraid of an adventure; he believed you had to experience life in the example of one his heroes, Ernest Hemingway. In high school Mike would sign onto freighters during his summer vacations, in search of adventure. In the ‘s he left college to work his way around the pacific on a Norwegian freighter signing off in Australia, where, while working for different Australian publications, he met his wife, Patricia. Later, he worked as a taxi driver in LA, exercised horses at race tracks, and tracked down violent criminals for his research. Mike had a reporter’s knowledge of Los Angeles and the world of horse racing. With his passing goes a lifetime of insights and experience that most of us could only wish for. Mike wrote for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, Weekend Magazine in Australia, an MGM studio in London, Variety in Hollywood, West magazine (Sunday magazine for the Los Angeles Times), California magazine, Islands magazine, the Santa Barbara Independent and TV Guide. He interviewed many of today’s iconic stars, before they were famous. Mike also wrote about the part of horse racing outside of the public view, and investigated pieces on murders, polygamy and other topics of interest. His articles on different areas of Los Angeles brought alive the multicultural and geographic differences of the many and varied parts of that sprawling city. One of his articles published in West magazine, formed the basis for his TV movie, Child Bride of Short Creek, a fictionalized story based upon the experiences of married women in a polygamous society and how they were affected when a police raid changed the social structure of their community. At the time of his death he was working on a book, rich in the lore of the Hollywood years as experienced by his father and stepmother, British actress Lillian Bond. His love of horse racing and interest in the life stories of jockeys and trainers helped sustain him during the end stages of his illness. 20


It seemed fitting that he was able to watch the Belmont Stakes race, on the eve of his death.

He was brave. He was honest. He was an explorer of life, constantly intrigued by his daily discoveries. He was a beer enthusiast and a walking encyclopedia. He was a man who loved sand between his toes and dog fur between his fingers. He could solve the most intricate of computer problems and had the beauty within him to find amazement in a firefly. He was the pillar his wife leaned against, never bending. He was the son every parent dreamed of and the friend any person could be lucky enough to have. And he was not on this earth long enough. Eric Paul Laschinger, , passed away on July , , in his home in Alexandria, VA, surrounded by family and love. His courageous -month struggle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia has ended. For a life so short, Eric packed a lot into it. Born on February , , in San Jose, CA, he became a man who was clearly enamored with the world around him. He enjoyed the meticulous craftsmanship of home brewing, the sound of breaking waves while playing bocce ball on the beach, the peaceful flickering of a late-night campfire, the inexhaustible energy of Emma, his Bernese Mountain dog. His mind, as his life, brimmed with curiosity and discovery. He loved learning about new things— be it an enticing destination to explore or an interesting story on Reddit— and sharing them with loved ones. And his loved ones, in turn, shared his contagious enthusiasm for food, wine and golf. Those loved ones include his wife and closest friend, Kristin Nunez. They met and married in Santa Barbara, where Eric graduated from UCSB with a B.S. in Computer Sci-

ence and a Master’s in Economics, which lead to his employment with ABC-CLIO and Mission Linen Supply in Santa Barbara and, later, as a software developer with IBM in Arlington, VA, where his talents were recognized and valued by his colleagues. Together Eric and Kristin shared an adventure that crossed the continent, moving to Alexandria to start the next chapter in their lives. Sadly, that chapter ended many pages too soon, and without the children they both hoped for. Eric would have been an amazing father. Still, he was a brilliant and kind man, and he will be missed more than he ever thought possible. The people who will miss him most, his family, include his wife, Kristin Nunez, and dog Emma Bear Laschinger of Alexandria, VA; his parents, Michael & Cheryl Laschinger of San Jose, CA; his grandparents, Colleen & Carl Mills of Prescott, AZ; and his sister Kristen Watts and Jonathan Watts, his brother-in-law of San Jose, CA. In addition, he will forever be in the thoughts and prayers of many aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as Louis & Susan Nunez, his motherand father-in-law, and John Nunez, his brother-in-law.

Unbounded Bond


ast week, The Independent reported on the proposed bond measure that seeks $288 million for Santa Barbara City College []. The 2008 bond measure for $77 million was passed by a large percentage of voters and has many more years before being liquidated. Do voters forget that interest owed on bonds increases the cost of a project significantly? Why would SBCC use so many temporary structures with no plan to remove them? Why repair a connecting bridge after so much time and money from the last bond was used to repair it? Why must SBCC serve more and more students from outside the district? Who among those involved in Measure S knows how to solve the huge traffic and parking problems the campus already generates? Who cares about the housing pressures brought on this community by additional students? Isn’t it important for those in charge at SBCC to lay out a plan of where the college intends to go with its growth plans? A small bond proposal might be justifiable, but the $288 million bond begs logic. — Gary L. Unruh, S.B.

broke the last drought, the City Council will have to give the green light to desal, according to city officials I’ve spoken with. Because preliminary work is already going on, the plant would then be ready in 2016, according to Rebecca Bjork, city public works director. The city figures it can get by until then. But if Cachuma spills next winter, desal could and should be delayed, Bjork told me. It’s POTABLE TO PARKS: Water-quality issues mean the recycled frightfully expensive, perhaps water plant is under reconstruction. a $30 million investment, and you really don’t want to spend IN PIECES: I wish I could report that Santa that kind of money until you need to.

buffalos” talked local agencies and panicked voters into ordering huge quantities of the stuff, despite Cassandra-like warnings from wiser heads that the water wouldn’t be here when the need was great. The Cassandras were right, and now most of the water buffalos have gone, leaving huge bills for the public to pay for nonexistent water. Much was promised, millions have been spent, but the spigot is shut. As for why the recycling plant isn’t on line yet, easing the drought, several conflicting points of view came to light. Basically, the plant output needed more and more blending with “good” potable water, defeating its purpose. Was the problem plant just allowed to decline through a sort of benign neglect because Cachuma was spilling and money was needed for other projects, as some contend? Absolutely not, insists Bjork. When the plant opened in 1989, it was one of the first in California, was well designed, and was running as ordered, she said. But then the state imposed new requirements on the city’s sanitation plant, which feeds water to be recycled, she said. The recycling plant then had to shift to a different “mode,” and that caused a quality problem, according to Bjork. Ruiz says that when he joined the Water Commission in 2007, the plant was already being blended on a 50 percent basis and got 10 percent poorer quality each year after that. He pushed for improved recycling. But facing other needs, such as spending $20 million at the

Cater Water Treatment Plant and $11 million for a treatment system for groundwater, and with Cachuma spilling, the staff decided to “let the recycling system run down” and stop maintaining it, Ruiz says. Bjork denies this. Says City Councilmember Bendy White: “In hindsight, we wish the plant had been rebuilt three years ago, but I understand what was going through the staff ’s minds,” a sense that with Cachuma spilling, let’s focus on other expensive water facilities and keep rates from going up too fast. “Who’d have predicted that we’d have three of the driest years on record after Cachuma spilled?” Now, says Ruiz, the new recycling plant has been budgeted for and is “not going to have a significant impact on rates.” “I’m really excited about our new plant,” Bjork told me. “It will be very reliable, with a high level of treatment.”

erhaps there is a Sampson-style magic to his perfectly manicured push-broom mustache. Or a sparkle of pixie dust in his bomb-proof, slickedback, salt-and-pepper hair. Or maybe the stars simply align a little more true when he flashes his trademark high-wattage grin, microphone in hand and a news scoop jumping from his lips, straight into your TV or car stereo. Whatever the causes, there is no denying the power of John Palminteri, the real world’s Ron Burgundy and undisputed heavyweight champion of the Santa Barbara news landscape. For the better part of four decades,“JP,” as his friends and colleagues call him, has been reporting the area’s news with a pace, fervor, and omnipresence that knows no equal. “He is absolutely everywhere and across all forms of media from the radio to the TV to newspapers to Facebook,” marveled Mayor Helene Schneider recently when asked for her thoughts on the KEYT senior news reporter that the public simply calls “The Palm.”“He is the ubiquitous John Palminteri, and I have no idea when that man sleeps,” added Schneider with a laugh and a dash of awe. “I mean, does he sleep?”




ofJOHN PALMINTERI by Ethan Stewart

Lady Diana and Prince Charles got married, Natalie Wood fell overboard, Donkey Kong and Frogger dominated the arcades, MTV first hit the airwaves, and a young radio news reporter from Los Angeles took a job in the Santa Barbara market. It was the fall of 1981, and the world was a different place. Palminteri, just a few years removed from graduating from Long Beach State with a double major in journalism and radio-TV-film, was hustling news and rocking a younger man’s version of his current upper-lip caterpillar. After a couple of short stints reporting, writing, and broadcasting for news radio in L.A. and Riverside, Palminteri was recommended for a job at KTMS , Santa Barbara’s once-proud all-news AM station owned by the most famous of the city’s media moguls past or present, Thomas Storke. It was the era of typewriters and cassette recorders and bulky microphones and Teletype machines, and Palminteri was in love with it all.

Taking a trip down memory lane earlier this year during a lengthy dinner interview at Joe’s Café, the 57-year-young Palminteri mused,“In those days, there wasn’t a news tip I didn’t jump at. Since a young age, if I knew something, I just couldn’t wait to tell people. It really got me going.” And then, after taking a sip from an ice-cold beer on an unseasonably hot spring night, he added with a chuckle,“and I’m not sure very much has changed for me since then.” The youngest of five children in a full-blooded Italian family, Palminteri grew up in South Central Los Angeles in the middle-class melting pot that once thrived between Watts and Inglewood. The son of a work-at-home Sicilian seamstress and a father who was a career employee for the City of Los Angeles’ Department of Public Works, Palminteri came of age in a time and place where civic duty not only mattered but was paramount and the average American seemed infinitely more interested in making the world a better place than they do today. Add to that ideal a natural gift of gab and his aforementioned penchant for sharing, and his trajectory toward a celebrated and multifaceted newsman seems like fate. Even his youthful days as one of the very first male waiters at Knott’s Berry Farm, where his hyper gregarious personality and customer-service-oriented attitude helped break down a reverse gender barrier at the fried-chicken and boysenberrypie emporium, becomes a clear stepping stone to his nowworld-class news chops. As his longtime friend and former colleague John Boitnott said, “He is the perfect example of a guy who is doing exactly what he was meant to do with his life. You have to understand, he isn’t just addicted to news; it is his way of life.”

JOHN DISHES ON HIS FAVORITE SANTA BARBARA STORIES As a young TV reporter, it was a monster fire, unlike anything I had been through. The hills were on fire from the middle of San Marcos Pass to Hollister Avenue. Our crew was in the middle of June 27, 1990, 6:02 p.m. a scene that had countless areas on fire, 70-mile-per-hour downcanyon winds, and thousands of people in a panic trying to evacuate. In about four hours, there were roughly 500 homes and businesses damaged or destroyed. By dawn, it was an eerie scene with structures gone, cars reduced to metal shells, and people walking in shock as they looked at the losses. At the same time, those who were not homeless immediately offered a helping hand, a home, food, and clothing.



After a very wet and stormy start to the winter season, a massive mudslide came down from the hills above the January 10, 2005, 12:30 p.m. 166-home La Conchita community, killing 10 people and injuring 14. It was the second La Conchita slide I had seen in my career. The first damaged about seven homes. This one took lives. In seconds, people who were in the homes or walking on the streets disappeared in the wall of mud. It was one of the most emotional scenes I had ever witnessed. Family members were in a panic calling for help, and others were wailing in tears. I would have never expected a trial involving one of the world’s (2005) most famous entertainers to land in our local lap, but that’s what happened when Michael Jackson was arrested in November 2003 and ordered to court for a trial on molestation charges in early 2005. The world watched, and I was given a seat in the Santa Maria courtroom where it all unfolded. Outside, fans from everywhere came to see what they could through the fence line and hold signs. They were as much of the story as the events inside the courthouse. I also found myself side by side with reporters from all the major news shows and international press.






I love Fiesta and everything that goes with it — the history, the horses, the horsing around that many people do to celebrate during the nearly weeklong event. Some cities don’t have the opportunity to put on such an event, one with years of incredible pageantry that’s gone on before us. Until I arrived in Santa Barbara, I can only remember two big parades: the Tournament of Roses and the Disneyland Main Street Parade. Fiesta has it all for the young, the old, the newbies, and the born and raised. Some people get tired of the music, dancing,“Vivas!” everywhere, the costumes, and the crowds. I can’t get enough of it. ■


To be included in the White House Press Corps as a young radio reporter from a local station was an incredible opportunity. I was able to be part of the daily press briefings when President Reagan was at his ranch and, during several summer events, I was invited to attend special western barbecue events that included a meet and greet with President Reagan and First Lady Nancy. Politics aside, meeting a president several times and having a tri-tip dinner with country music was an amazing time I will never forget.



ON THE SCENE: From presidents and pop stars to the parties of Fiesta and the tragedies that have rocked our community over the years, John Palminteri has been through it all with us, his news reports on both radio and television serving as touchstones for the greater Santa Barbara area.

The sticker says it all: “Palminteri is Primetime.” The black-and-white, Shepard Fairey–esque image of JP’s likeness has become a visual touchstone in Santa Barbara media lore and pop culture alike. The guerrilla-style pro-Palminteri-sticker marketing campaign, born without the newsman’s involvement but fully embraced by him in the years since, can be found everywhere from beloved pizza joints in San Francisco’s North Beach and subway stations in New York City to cargo holds on FedEx jets and a scooter in Vietnam. Though people in the know are tight-lipped, rumor has it that the original artwork and sticker campaign were the brainchild of a former Dos Pueblos High School student named “Ricky.” The sticker, which cropped up shortly after Palminteri began his  Seconds of News on the highly popular though now defunct KjEE Morning Show with Spencer, Jenny, and Adam in 2003, hints at the vast and varied role that Palminteri plays in the community at large. As radio personality and former Palminteri cohort Spencer Fischer said,“John is a cross between Santa Barbara’s Other Mayor and a human Oscar Mayer Wienermobile; everybody smiles when they see him.” Need more proof of the Palm’s popularity? Taking a stroll down State Street with the man is the closest thing you can get to walking with Elvis. The demand for his attention from people young and old (ladies especially) is off the charts; he holds court wherever he goes. He has a drink named after him at the French Press (the “John Palminteri” is a blend of iced green tea and lemonade); a Cinco de Mayo event at the Sandbar where, unbeknownst to him, the primary party favors are oversized cutouts of his face; presides over fake April Fools’ Day wedding ceremonies at the Courthouse; and can lead a sold-out Bowl audience less than half his age chanting in buzzy unity, “Primetime! Primetime! Primetime!” In media speak, his market penetration is ridiculous. While his years spent reporting the news certainly doesn’t hurt, such work is by no means a guarantee for good will from the public. Without a doubt, it is his ever-growing résumé of emcee duties with various nonprofits and charities around the South Coast and assorted other events such as Fiesta, the Downtown Organization’s Annual Holiday Parade, and KjEE’s Summer Round-Up concert that does the bulk of the heavy lifting in endearing him to the community at large. Quick on his feet and more than comfortable working with a hot mike in hand and no teleprompter, Palminteri (who had a short-lived tenure as a stand-up comedian) is clearly the fan favorite to inherit Larry Crandell’s “Mister Santa Barbara” mantle, though he would be the last to ever suggest such a thing. “Sure, he shows up for the opening of an envelope, but chances are he will emcee it and cover it and, in the process, get a handful of news tips out of the deal. ... The guy is a news artist,” said KEYT coworker David Hefferman.“I fully expect at the end of the world that John will be hosting it and quite possibly filing a story.” The true motivating force behind Palminteri’s public-appearance schedule is something fans of his news work may not know — the guy has a big

It is impossible to talk about the Palm without mentioning Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell’s suit-wearing, mustached, contagiously charismatic newshound of the comedy films Anchorman and Anchorman . The parallels between the two men — one real and the other real-good Hollywood — is uncanny to such a degree that Palminteri should be in line for royalties or, at the very least, get some sort of public attribution. Similarities go way beyond facial hair,“stay classy” jokes, and being popular with women. In the movies, Burgundy is a critical part of the fabric of San Diego, his role as newsman helping hold together and lift up a city in times of crisis. Palminteri does that for Santa Barbara; his yellowjacket-wearing self has been a reassuring touchstone during the deadly and destructive wildfires that all too often terrorize this part of the world. Well beyond the imagined benefits of having Ron Burgundy as your area newsman, Palminteri, thanks to his choice to stay in Santa Barbara all these years (and it has been his choice — he’s had more than one offer to move to big-city markets), is on a short list of South Coast media warriors who have put in the time and have the ability to



CONTINUED FROM P. 29 heart. I spoke with coworkers past and present as well as people from the PR world and various police and fire public information officers, elected officials, and just about anyone else I ran into, and the overarching sentiment was the same — the Palm has a surplus of generosity. It seems that as much as he finds himself in the spotlight’s embrace, it is always other people who come first.“He is giving himself to people all day long,” said Oscar Flores, a Santa Barbara native who has been JP’s cameraman at KEYT since 2010. And Flores has personal experience to prove it. Shortly after the two began working together, they were on their way back to the station after reporting a story in Santa Maria when the tire on their news van imploded. With Flores at the wheel and JP riding shotgun and working on his laptop, the van spun out of control and into oncoming traffic before catching some air and ultimately flipping. Amid the smoke and broken glass and shell-shocked panic that follows a brush with death, Palminteri made sure Flores was able to exit the vehicle first, actually helping boost the young cameraman up and out and into safety before tending to himself. “He was so selfless that day; I will never forget it,” said Flores.“But now I know that’s just how John is; he puts others before him.”

CULT OF PERSONALITY: From emcee duties at KjEE’s Annual Summer Round-Up concert to dressing up as Ron Burgundy while covering Halloween in Isla Vista, the man we call the Palm threads the needle perfectly between self-promotion and self-deprecation while having more than a few laughs along the way.

put big stories in context and tell the news as it matters specifically for us. This skill is invaluable to a city and its people, especially in this day and age where specialization and turnover are at an all-time high. The importance of someone like the Palm to Santa Barbara was never lost on me, but I had overlooked the two-way nature of the relationship. While reporting this story and wrestling with his wickedly busy schedule in order to meet up and get some proper interviews done, I learned that he was quietly suffering from some terrible losses. In the course of one month, both his mother and one of his big brothers died, the latter coming as an awful surprise. Though the cruel plot twist “just sent me counterclockwise,” he said, he has continued to work. For example, he covered the Deltopia riots — getting teargassed eight separate times in the process — and hosted La Primavera, the official kickoff event of the Old Spanish Days Fiesta 2014 season, and then, just a few über-busy weeks later, he delivered 45-hours straight of work in the wake of the Isla Vista shootings, reporting the tragedy for KEYT as well as multiple national and international news outlets. But in the pain, there has been a lesson about the true nature of a relationship between a committed newsperson and the city or town he/she covers: “For whatever reason, doing what I do has helped me,” Palminteri said while nursing a beer at the James Joyce a few weeks back. “My therapy really is my work and the great people of Santa Barbara. I love my job, and I love this city.” ■

Fiesta Event

Spirits of Fiesta

It’s been nearly 70 years since a shy little girl named Lia Parker set off dancing down State Street, leading a parade of horses and civic leaders in a celebration of Santa Barbara. The year was 1946, and at the age of 12, Parker was the very first spirit of Fiesta. Despite her nerves, Parker loved dancing in Fiesta, which she did for three years. “When you start the parade, you feel a certain responsibility in your spirit — a love for your city,” she told The Independent during a 2013 interview. Lia Parker The role of spirit has since become a sought-after honor for many young women. Six decades later, Parker is still involved with Old Spanish Days — she is this year’s Grand Marshall, and she will participate in Garden Court’s Fiesta kick-off celebration, which takes place this Thursday. Parker will perform along with 2014’s spirit and junior spirit, Talia Ortega Vestal and Natalie Mowers, respectively. The party includes food and drinks, such as tacos, chips and salsa, guacamole, horchata and margaritas, and dance performances by the Linda Vega Dance Studio. The free event takes place Thursday, July 24, 6-8 p.m., at Garden Court (1116 De la Vina St.). For more information, call 884-0095. — Michelle Drown

Monn and his family live part-time in Los Angeles and part-time in Santa Barbara. “It’s so calm and quiet here, just a different experience than what we get in L.A.,” he added. left: “I took the day off for my birthday and decided this was exactly what I wanted to do,” said Brenda Nielsen (pictured center) while she and her husband, Greg, and daughter, Claire, enjoyed their daily walk along the beach with their dogs. “It’s great socialization for both us and the dogs and adds a nice balance to the day,” said Nielsen.

Jaylin Davis and Dillon Dobson came to the Pacific shore from the North Carolina mountain country of Appalachian State University. Davis, a rangy outfielder who has long, antelope-like legs, smacked his team-leading sixth homer of the season to dead center Sunday. “It’s great to be around a group of kids who like to win a lot,” he said. “And the weather here is nice every day.” The Foresters must fulfill one responsibility off the field — shed some sunshine on the lives of children with cancer.

Colt Atwood led off the bottom of the first inning at UCSB’s Caesar Uyesaka Stadium with a single. The speedy outfielder from Sam Houston State became an immediate distraction at the first-base corner. Atwood has stolen 23 bases this summer and has been caught only three times. “If I get thrown out, I’ll take a bigger lead and get ’em next time,” he said. He was so far off the bag that when Caps pitcher Cameron Avila-Leeper threw over to first, instead of diving back, Atwood took off for second.

“I crave noodles,” explained Lee, and one reason is that, 14 years ago, he became good friends with Nui Pannak, another familiar restaurant face to many — she was the main waitress at Zen Yai on lower State Street for years. Though she never cooked at Zen Yai, Pannak was an amazing home chef, and Lee often left her home amazed and hungry for more. So when the Public Market’s visionary developer Marge Cafarelli called Lee one afternoon last summer to say that a spot had opened up, Lee quickly turned to Pannak. Together with his friend Emre Balli, a sommelier from both San Ysidro and El Encanto, the pair began to hash out a plan. A week later, the three were partners, and papers were signed.“I made it happen as fast as I could,” he recalled, and in six months, they had lined up the necessary investors, menus, and branding, and convinced Pannak to cook in a commercial kitchen for the first time in her life.“It was kind of a miracle for us.” Lee did have a running start. “Restaurants have always been in my blood,” he explained. Born in Taiwan, he moved with his family to Carmel when he was 7 years old to live with his grandparents, who ran Chinese restaurants on the Monterey peninsula. When he was 12, the family moved to San Luis Obispo to open their own Chinese restaurants, including the PATRICK REYNOLDS

here remain a lot of yet-to-be-knowns for the Santa Barbara Public Market, the indoor mall of restaurants and gourmet retailers at the corner of Chapala and Victoria streets that opened in April. Most everyone who loves hand-crafted, artisanminded food and drink wants the project to succeed, but many are curious whether all of the shops will survive and, if not, which ones will stand the test of time and rent? One thing’s for sure: The almost-always-bustling Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar is here to stay and may even expand to other locations in the years to come. “I wanted to create that memory people have from traveling in Southeast Asia,” said founder and co-owner Jerry Lee, a familiar face on Santa Barbara’s fine-dining scene since he moved to town from San Luis Obispo in 1993. Amid jobs at Citronelle (where he rose to become wine buyer during 10 years of work), San Ysidro Ranch (where he helped relaunch the Stonehouse’s beverage program over eight years), and, most SIDLING UP TO JERRY LEE’S recently, as director of restaurants for the rebuilt El Encanto for a brief time, Lee always had his eye on starting by Matt Kettmann something like Empty Bowl. The noodle-focused bar is best described as Asian fusion, tapping a broad array of cultural influences from China to the Philippines, but it mainly puts a creative twist on classic Thai dishes, all menu items relying on the freshest ingredients possible.

still-existing Mandarin Gourmet (which they sold years ago). Upon graduation from high school in 1993, Lee came to SBCC but started with Citronelle almost immediately and never looked back. It’s still a family business, too, at least when it comes to the potstickers.“My mom comes up every Saturday and wraps thousands,” said Lee.“I grew up with them — I eat like 30 a day.” And it’s not uncommon to see Pannak step out of the kitchen for a few minutes to eat noodles with her own family during a rare downtime. Those who have already tried to eat at Empty Bowl know that “downtime” is generally not on the menu, but Lee suggests coming before 11:30 a.m. or between 3 and 5 p.m. on the weekdays, ordering and then eating at another spot in the Public Market, or just doing to-go (those latter two options are relatively new). Limited seating is just one of the challenges presented by working in such a confined space at the heart of the market, where there isn’t much storage, barely room for two prep stations, and lots of body bumping for the gaggle of cooks and servers jostling behind the bar. But that’s become an advantage for Empty Bowl, as Lee is forced to order ingredients every day. “We fresh cut everything,” said Lee.“There’s no backstop, no freezer. You can taste it in the food.” For anyone who loves that Thai-based juxtaposition of sensations that are magically both rich and zesty, sweet and spicy, crunchy and smooth, light and filling, Empty Bowl will satisfy you in spades. The formula is rather replicable, so Lee hopes to one day open another spot in the Santa Barbara area, possibly followed by a small chain in similarly sized cities, perhaps in Public Market–type places, which seem to be popping up everywhere. And, to spread the noodle mantra even further, Pannak will soon be leading cooking classes in the Public Market’s demonstration kitchen, teaching us all how to fill our own empty bowls at home.

THE SIRENS: (FROM LEFT) Jean Hall as Rose Arnott, Arnolt, Shannon Saleh as Lottie Wilton, and Britni BritiniAlleman Allerman as Lady Caroline Bramble star in Enchanted April.

Slightly Stoopid



he little theater at the edge of a corral in Refugio Canyon may not look like a portal to other worlds, but with Miller James directing and making the costumes, Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre’s upcoming production of Enchanted April promises to take audience on a convincing imaginary journey, first to dreary London and then to a sun-splashed villa in Tuscany. They will be following the trail of Lottie Wilton (Shannon Saleh) and Rose Arnott (Jean Hall), a desperately bored pair of English housewives who have schemed together to ditch their husbands for an April fling in Italy. Unable to cover the full cost of such an escapade on their own, the two reluctantly engage two more women, Lady Caroline Bramble (Britni Alleman) and Mrs. Graves (Marion Freitag), to share the expenses and the villa. While the first act, which takes place in London, portrays the drab reality from which Lottie and Rose yearn to depart, the second act conveys both the reality of a sunny Mediterranean spring and the fantasies of a new start in romance that all four women, in one


With Deep Fantasy, Canadian punk trio White Lung make it clear that they’re willing to embrace their reputation as loud, succinct, and electrifying music makers. Led by Mish Way, a singer with a seemingly endless amount of charisma, the band’s latest is a marvelous display of unrelenting and unapologetic aggression — 10 songs pumped out in less than 23 minutes. Deep Fantasy immediately kicks into high gear with opening track “Drown with the Monster” and makes no attempt to slow down or change the tempo as it rolls on. But instead of weighing the record down, the


way or another, carry with them. Barbara Tzur will play the villa’s maid — a part that’s entirely in Italian — while Ryan Price has the privilege of portraying the villa’s suavely charming owner. Eventually a pair of husbands, played in this production by Dillon Yuhasz and Thomas Carlisle, will interrupt this idyll, but not before the women have a chance to blossom in the sun — and of course get on each other’s nerves. For James, who appears to be making a habit out of directing sophisticated comedies for Circle Bar B producers David and Susie Couch, the show is a chance to “feel like an adult among adults.” The director, who band’s energy works in its favor, cajoling its listeners to hold on and enjoy the ride. Often, bands that tend toward the loud-and-fast model seem to be compensating for a lack of musical complexity, but this is certainly not the case for White Lung. In fact, with each new listen, you will likely find yourself more aware of the band’s nuanced songwriting and production. What’s likely to draw you in, though, is Way, who has the rare ability to sound completely in charge and completely vulnerable at the same time. Balancing him out is guitarist Kenneth William, whose frenzied yet controlled playing injects songs like “Sycophant” and “I Believe” with a necessary dose of liveliness. The end result is undoubtedly the band’s best album yet and is sure to reward listeners for years to come. — Blake Harper

teaches theater during the school year, told me that he feels a little selfish for enjoying it so much but that there is something special about working closely with a group that doesn’t need acting lessons, just top-quality direction. The second act set, which James describes as “an expressionist take on white curtains and Mediterranean sun,” is by William York Hyde, with scenic art by Alleman. In the years following the popular 1992 Mike Newell film adaptation, playwright Matthew Barber returned to the 1922 novel by Elizabeth von Arnim looking for an effective way to re-create the story’s magic live onstage. His solution, which premiered in Hartford in 2000 and went on to a successful Broadway run, was to break the action in half and put the dream of Italy out of reach for the entire first act. It will be a pleasure to share the experience of opening that second act door on paradise when the play debuts on Friday, July 25. Enchanted April continues at Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sunday matinees through September 7. For tickets, call 967-1962 or visit — Charles Donelan

They’re baaack. Slightly Stoopid has been playing in and around SLIGHTLY town for years now, STOOPID and this Friday, the JOINS CYPRESS HILL, band returns to STEPHEN MARLEY AT THE headline the S.B. Bowl. S.B. BOWL Founders Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald started the group in high school and hit the road to play in clubs the minute they turned 18. Reminiscing about those times by phone last week, Doughty says, “We’re all very fortunate to be able to do this for a couple decades and travel the world with your best friends. I’m living the dream.” When you’ve been performing for almost two decades, you can pretty much play anything and master it, and that’s exactly what Slightly Stoopid do. Started as a punkrock three-piece back in 1995, the band now boasts eight members and plays everything from hip-hop to acoustic to blues and rock; it’s no wonder Doughty describes their music as a “melting pot of madness.” Over the years, they’ve found kindred spirits in all manner of collaborators, too, from Snoop Dogg to John Denver to Stephen Marley, who joins the band as part of their current Summer Sessions Tour. When asked who his favorite artists to work with were, Doughty explains, “All of them. It’s been a blessing to work with all of them.” Friday’s show promises to be equally eclectic. Doughty says that the band is playing different sets, mixing up everything from the old tracks to never-before-heard songs. Openers include hip-hop group Cypress Hill, as well as Marley. To Doughty, the Bowl is an especially big highlight on the tour schedule. Every city has its own particular vibe, he says, but Santa Barbara has always been a bit of a home for the band — probably because they’ve been performing here for nearly 17 years. “Back in the day, we used to play in Isla Vista, then clubs, and now the Bowl,” he recalls. “There are always good vibes, the environment is great, and the people are always good to us.” As for Doughty’s dream audience? “Maybe 20,000 people just going nuts?” he laughs. “I don’t think people realize that every day is so much fun when you’re playing music. Every day is a dream audience.” Slightly Stoopid plays the S.B. Bowl on Friday, July 25, at 5:30 p.m. Call 962-7411 or visit for tickets. — Ginny Chung

he terms “orchestra conductor” and “humble” are seldom found in the same sentence. Yet both apply to Alan Gilbert. Ask the music director of the New York Philharmonic about his teaching technique — he is also director of conducting and orchestral studies at the Juilliard School of Music — and his response is wryly self-deprecating: “A lot of what I teach them is by example. I always tell them to take what’s good and notice what doesn’t work.” This week, Gilbert makes his debut at another great teaching venue, the Music Academy of the West. To kick off the school’s four-year partnership with the orchestra (which will include performances by the full ensemble in 2015 and 2017), he will lead master classes at 1 p.m. this Thursday, July 24, and 3:15 p.m. on Friday, July 25, at the Academy’s Montecito campus. He will then conduct members of the Festival Orchestra in the music of Schubert, Schönberg, and Thomas Adès on Saturday at the Lobero Theatre. He took time after a recent rehearsal to answer some questions from his Lincoln Center office.

You argue that the role of the orchestra in a city’s or a country’s cultural life is changing. In what ways? Over the last 50 years,

there has been an obvious shift. Outreach into schools, multicultural initiatives — a lot of these things became a part of the orchestra’s portfolio. There was a vacuum that needed to be filled. I believe — and this is the premise of a lot of what drives me — that we’ve entered into the next chapter. What were noble, important, but ancillary activities have now become central. They’re part and parcel of what orchestras are. In a sense, education is very much at the center of everything we do, including in our “normal” subscription concerts. So orchestras are fundamentally different now. The challenge for us is to remain true to the heritage and tradition — to play Beethoven as well as it’s possible to do so — but also use the energy and abilities of all the people in the organization as fully as possible, and being the richest possible resource for as many people as possible. I know this all sounds very lofty, but it’s really exciting to me.

How does the new partnership with the Music Academy fit into this new paradigm? Since I’ve started at the New York Phil-

harmonic, we’ve been trying to build relationships and create situations in which we can really hunker down and develop connections with new audiences. When we tour, we want to do more than play a one-night stand and then move on to the next city. We spend two weeks [each year] at the Vail Music Festival. We’re going to start spending significant chunks of time every year in Shanghai. We have an ongoing relationship with the Barbican Centre in London. First of all, this is practical: You don’t have to travel as much. But for me, it’s about being who we are, even on the road. So often orchestras do one thing at home, then trot out the warhorses on the road, playing a popular program in city after city. It’s great for people to hear that, but I’d like to try to preserve our musical identity, to stay true to who we are, even when we’re on the road. That’s much easier to do if we do multiple concerts and give people a chance to really get to know us. In this context, the Music Academy of the West partnership fits right in and makes a lot of sense. It allows the Philharmonic to be connected to a wonderful, well-established school. My interest in education is very well-served by being able to work with the student orchestra there. I won’t say it’s a no-brainer, since a lot of work went into it, but a lot of things seemed to fall into place.

How do you incorporate your educational mission into the concerts themselves? I always try to create programs that utilize

connections between pieces. I think that part of my job is to help people realize what there is to appreciate and enjoy about the widest range of music possible. It’s more than just using “bait” by putting a lesser-known piece on the first half of a program and then a Beethoven symphony on the second half. It’s also helping people understand that there are things they may not know about that they might actually love. I often speak at concerts, which I guess is an overt form of education. But I never try to say anything particularly profound. I just want to make sure people realize the door is open (to new experiences) and they can walk through it themselves.

And if they stubbornly refuse to move? Even people who say they only want to hear Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and Mozart — I don’t think that’s true. Even if they love those composers more than anyone else, which is totally understandable and legitimate, one’s appreciation of their music is enhanced when you hear those pieces in context. Wall-to-wall Beethoven is great, but you can understand more about Beethoven when it’s juxtaposed with other music. That’s even better. Beethoven was also a new composer at one time — a firebrand and a real risk-taker.

BE ABOVE IT: Despite his position on the podium for one of America’s most esteemed orchestras, New York Philharmonic Director Alan Gilbert embodies humility. He’s pictured here at Lincoln Center (top left, right) and conducting the N.Y. Phil in Central Park (bottom).

It’s almost possible to take him for granted today. I think that should never happen.

Major financial problems have surfaced recently at the Metropolitan Opera and the San Diego Opera, among other institutions. Do you think the current financial model for classical music is sustainable? I’m fundamentally an optimist. There will

always be a place for classical music. It’s not a dying art form. Some old business models will have to be let go. We’re trying a lot of different things. Some are working out; some are not. There are actually more people listening to classical music now than ever, but the cultural landscape has changed so drastically. People are able to have their entertainment delivered to them in so many ways. With the myriad of instant-access, immediategratification, low-cost entertainment options, the challenge is differentiating what we do and making sure people are aware that what we’re doing can be meaningful to them.


Alan Gilbert leads master classes at the Music Academy of the West on Thursday, July 24, and Friday, July 25. He’ll conduct at the Lobero Theatre on Saturday, July 26, at 8 p.m. For more on the Music Academy, as well as tickets and information about performances and classes, call 969-8787 or visit July 24, 2014

GREEK HUMOR: UpStage Left’s Lysistrata took over Godric Grove for three performances.


Lysistrata. In Godric Grove at Elings Park, Friday, July 18. Reviewed by Charles Donelan


he Peloponnesian War did not go well for ancient Athens. Long years of incessant fighting in such relatively far-off locations as Sicily left the city state weak and vulnerable. By the end of the conflict, the once-powerful Athenians had lost their colonies, their navy, and even the walls that once protected their homes. But in the tense decade between the failed Sicilian Expedition of 415-413 bce and their total surrender in 404, Athens enjoyed one last burst of greatness as an empire. It was into this fleeting moment of glory that the playwright Aristophanes flung Lysistrata, a comedy about one woman’s campaign to end the Peloponnesian Wars before they destroy Athens for good. So, what’s that got to do with Santa Barbara, circa 2014? In the capable hands of Cheri and Emma Steinkellner, and with assistance from Carolyn Ross, Jessica Hambright, and a saucy cast of 14 talented young actors, the answer turns out to be plenty. Led by the magnetic Sofia Ross as Lysistrata, and supported by several deliciously over-the-top efforts on the part of young men playing women — I’m looking at you Malcolm McCarthy (Myrrinhe), Stone Roshell (Lampito), and Nick Blondell (Nicodice) — along with two intrepid young women, Sophia Winnikoff and Alizah Walton, playing men, this Lysistrata was hilarious and intense, just the way I imagine Aristophanes would have wanted it. Lysistrata’s great plan of women withholding sex until men stop the war got a thorough examination through the play’s agons, or rhetorical contests, which were sharp and funny, and was then put to the true test in a series of madcap episodes featuring every imaginable type of arousal-induced misbehavior. Trees were climbed, bubble swords were brandished in a most embarrassing manner, and whenever things got slow, Myrrinhe went flying over the far wall. This Lysistrata is a fun and educational way for anyone who enjoys theater or ■ Greek history to get in touch with their inner Athenian.

hile Santa Barbara can boast plenty of first-class stages — the Garvin, the New Vic, the Granada, and the Lobero, to name a few — this performance by that vagabond troop known as Elements Theatre Collective vividly reminded me how little by way of brick and mortar is needed to invoke theatrical magic. Where is the play? Anywhere skillful storytelling occurs and willing imaginations are open. As with previous productions, Elements strives to make theater accessible to everyone by playing Orlando free of charge in a host of spaces from yoga studios to a coffee house, a mortuary, and a church. This performance at Casa Esperanza drew an eager audience that included homeless people who rarely attend Santa Barbara theater, and the evening was sheer fun. Tess Plant-Thomas plays the title role with a genuinely touching combination of thoughtfulness and innocence. Virginia Woolf’s comic fantasy (adapted by Sarah Ruhl) follows the ageless Orlando from the Elizabethan court to the 20th century as he witnesses material progress and cultural development as well as a magical gender change. The core issues are deep — the mystery of identity and the illusion of time — but the wit and farce are absolutely captivating. A flexible supporting cast gives strong, even performances that require intricate choral narration, clever costume effects, and delightful comic characterizations that include Rob Grayson’s Queen Elizabeth and Stephanie Farnum’s Archduchess/Archduke Harry. Morgan Altenhoff ’s Princess Sasha is so convincing that I thought for certain the actress was Russian. Finally, Erika Leachman provides vibrant support, including the role of Marmaduke Bonthrop Shelmerdine, Esquire. ■ July 24, 2014

e doubt that Michael McDonald had youth nonprofits in mind when he penned “Takin’ It to the Streets” in 1976. But, then again, you never really know. This Sunday, in a grand example of life imitating art, the Doobie Brothers frontman will headline a benefit block party in the heart of the Funk Zone for Youth Interactive, the Santa Barbara–based arts education program on lower Anacapa Street. Over breakfast at D’Angelos Café earlier this month, we sat down with McDonald, Youth Interactive founder Nathalie Gensac, program manager Emily Griffith, and McDonald’s daughter, Scarlett, who’s handling public relations for this weekend’s event, to discuss the organization’s biggest fundraising endeavor to date, as well as the impact the program is having on Santa Barbara at large. For the unacquainted, Youth Interactive (YI) is one of a number of budding S.B. organizations attempting to reunite young people with their creative centers. But it’s also a lot more. Rather than simply offering up a creative outlet for low-income kids, YI is functioning as a vocational arts academy of sorts, instilling “practical life skills, financial literacy, and success through entrepreneurship” to the students that come through its doors. In the two years since Youth Interactive’s inception, its students have created six micro-businesses offering everything from video news production to culinary arts to furniture and textile design. Within these entrepreneurial ventures, the students not only hone a craft but also learn business planning, marketing, and entrepreneurship — all while earning money as well as school and/or community service credits. “By teaching them vocational skills and business skills, they’re getting that balance of getting to do their craft and building the tools to make it into a business,” explained Gensac.“They’re earning real money from these endeavors, and that’s empowering them. When you give a kid the title of CFO, they feel like they can try, like they can get something out of it.” The approach seems to be working, too. Over the course of our meal, the group offered up success story after success story, like the young woman who can now afford her bus fare because of the money she’s earned as a member of the organization’s biscotti-making team. Or the young man who bounced in and out of Los Prietos Boys Camp before joining the group’s T-shirt-

making business. Or Alyiah, the single mom who came to Youth Interactive after dropping out of high school. Since arriving at the center in January, she’s enrolled in La Cuesta Continuation High School, received a student leadership award, and earned a $2,000 scholarship to Santa Barbara City College, where she’ll begin classes in the fall. “When you get put into the system, it becomes really hard to find another viable path. That becomes your community,” said Griffith. “How do you get a job? How do you get back into school after being out for six months? Once you turn 18 and that turns into more than a juvenile record, your options are instantly curbed in terms of your future.” Though the Youth Interactive curriculum has only been fully functional for a year, Gensac says somewhere between 60 and 90 volunteers have already filtered through, and the list of helpers is pretty illustrious, too. In addition to McDonald, the group has hosted notable street artists Rafael Vargas-Suarez and Man One, who helped design and oversee two of the group’s multiple mural projects. The result of these collaborations can be seen throughout the Funk Zone, in high-profile places like the Hotel Indigo, Municipal Winemakers, and the AMASS Gallery on Mason Street. More importantly, Griffith points out, about 90 percent of the organization’s first graduating class has gone on to acquire jobs, reenroll in school, or start college.

As for McDonald, who is both headlining and helping spearhead this weekend’s benefit concert, the Youth Interactive message hits especially close to home. “My sister dropped out of private school, enrolled in public school, and basically worked from then on to help support our family. I was lucky in that I was able to pull in just enough money through music to keep my mother off my back,” McDonald laughed. “Looking back, though, what a stroke of luck. It was such a gift to be able to support myself doing something I loved, and it motivated me to keep going. I see a lot of these kids, and I think they want to get out there and contribute; they just need someone to tell them how. And if they can do it artistically, it’s so much more gratifying and so much more sustainable.” Come Sunday, McDonald will be one of many artists showing their support for YI. He’ll share the Mason Street stage with Ambrosia, as well as openers Dylan McDonald & The Avians,Yassou Benedict, and One Two Tree, and all ticket sales will directly benefit Youth Interactive’s ongoing endeavors, which include future scholarships and staffing. “There’s a practicality in this,” McDonald enthused.“And what’s good for these kids is good for the community, for all of us.”

“The Charmer Of The Year. A Masterclass In Acting.


Douglas & Keaton Are Great. One Of Reiner’s Best!” Dean Richards, WGN-TV/CHICAGO


Boyhood. Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater, and Patricia Arquette star in a film written and directed by Richard Linklater. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino


haracters in Richard Linklater movies always talk, talk, talk about topics like life itself. It’s obviously the stuff of dramatic observations, but it isn’t much like typical American conversation. Maybe your Europeans will sip espresso and discuss comparative philosophies, but in this country — and particularly Texas, where Linklater famously resides — palaver is more about laconic grunts and snappy wisecracks. That’s why Linklater’s people are usually in the throes of life-changing experiences when we meet them; they’re falling in love, getting stoned, dying, or most often, just serving time in the prison of young adulthood. This film, which took Linklater 12 years to shoot, mixes bits from all of the above dramatic situations. And the folks in Boyhood do love them some talk. The film follows the remarkably sane Mason (Ellar Coltrane) from young boyhood — approximately 1992, when the actor was 7 — to his first day of college. Mason and his sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), suffer and enjoy a series of family changes, including a parade of bad stepfathers, as their mom (Patricia Arquette) does her best to raise them solo after dumping their (boyish) irresponsible real father (the soft-voiced Ethan Hawke). He

isn’t a terrible dad, but just like everyone else in this movie, he’s radically unsure what life expects of him. Meanwhile, because the movie was shot over a decade of real time, we watch Mason and his sister pass through evolving bodies and increasingly complex emotional interactions. Three hours after it begins, we’ve literally watched them grow up onscreen. It isn’t a perfect film. Linklater stacks the deck against the flailing grown-ups, and it runs too long, though it would be very tough to cut. But Boyhood also stays with you for all the reasons listed above. We get to hear a sound not made in America enough: existence discussed with a reasoning skeptical voice. It’s moving but not melodramatic. You don’t want to part company with the kids. You want Mason to meet a nice girl and get a good job someday. And I want more U.S. movie directors to make crazy films like this, so film art here might grow up ■ someday, too.

First, there were anthropomorphized cars and then a plucky crop-dusting plane named Dusty who nearly dies in a cross-Pacific trip. Here we revisit the flying champion of the world, where airplanes are the dominant species. (There’s even a forest scene where a momma airplane feeds babies in a nest.) Dusty has a problem with his gearbox, which, it turns out, is not a sexual metaphor. Or is it? In short, he can’t fly hard without risking his own death, so he becomes a self-centered creep for a while. Meanwhile, there is a whole other plot introduced that includes Dusty in a crazy scheme to be certified as a firefighter. This splits the action in two, and if there were any 7-year-olds still paying attention, all the technical talk about repairs, firefighting techniques, and following orders will either put them to sleep or turn them into that kid in the theater that keeps asking, What is happening now, Daddy? Too dumb for grown-ups, too complex for wee ones, it’s the kind of movie that almost gets by with beautiful scenery and a bit of wish-fulfillment about soaring through clouds. But mostly it’s a big stall from the company that ought to be working on rebuilding its reputation. (DJP) Fairview (D)/Fiesta  (D and D)

✯ The Purge: Anarchy

(103 mins.; R: strong disturbing violence, language)

Reviewed on page 59. Camino Real/Metro 

Sex Tape (90 mins.; R: strong sexual content, nudity, language, some drug use)

Sex Tape begins promisingly enough. We follow the college courtship of Annie (Cameron Diaz) and Jay (Jason Segel), a relationship that is built on the foundation of hot, adventurous, frequent (and I do mean frequent) sex. In the first minutes of the film, we watch the couple age, procreate, and advance in their respective careers. The price to be paid for growing up, according to the film, is physical intimacy. In an attempt to reclaim their sex life, Jay and Annie dump the kids off with grandma for the night and use Jay’s new iPad to make a three-hour sex tape in which they film themselves performing every position featured in The Joy of Sex. Annie makes Jay promise to delete the film, a promise he fails to keep, and when the video uploads to his personal iCloud, a remote drive that connects to his several old iPads he has given away as gifts, Jay and Annie must scramble around Los Angeles in a desperate attempt to delete every known copy of their indiscretion. It’s here where the film begins to sputter. What began as a raunchy and heartfelt look at the evolution of intimacy in the lives of married parents quickly devolves into rote slapstick and predict-

able hijinks. Which isn’t to say there isn’t a place for slapstick and hijinks in a sex comedy. I’m pretty sure block comedy is this genre’s lifeblood. But the comedic set pieces, from the dog attack Jay suffers to the break-in the couple stage to the final pratfall-to-end-all-pratfalls to prevent the film from screening at their children’s elementary school, these big events always feel more like filler than actual plot. Jay and Annie, as individuals and as a couple, change little. This film plays it too safe, both with the sexual antics and the emotional lives of its central couple. It’s a diverting ride with charming leads and a strong supporting cast, but in a summer that features comedic heavyweights like  Jump Street and Neighbors, Sex Tape fails to pass muster.

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): A report in the prestigious British medical journal BMJ says that almost one percent of young pregnant women in the U.S. claim to be virgins. They testify that they have conceived a fetus without the benefit of sex. That’s impossible, right? Technically, yes. But if there could ever be a loophole in natural law, it would happen for you, Aries, sometime in the coming weeks. You will be so exceptionally fertile, so prone to hatching new life, that almost anything could incite germination. A vivid dream or captivating idea or thrilling adventure or exotic encounter might be enough to do the trick.

(June 21 - July 22): Diamonds are not rare. They are so numerous that if they were evenly distributed, you and me and everyone else on the planet could each have a cupful of them. And if you are ever in your lifetime going to get your personal cupful, it may happen in the next 11 months. That’s because your hard work and special talent are more likely than usual to be rewarded with tangible assets. Strokes of luck will tend to manifest in the form of money and treasure and valuable things you can really use. Be alert for the clues, Cancerian. One may appear momentarily.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): In the latter part of the 18th century, American rebels and rabble-rousers used to gather regularly in the basement of the Green Dragon Tavern in Boston. There they plotted the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s ride, and other dissident adventures that opposed British rule. That’s why the Green Dragon became known as the “Headquarters of the Revolution.” I think you and your cohorts need a place like that, Libra. It’s high time for you to scheme and dream about taking coordinated actions that will spur teamwork and foster liberation.

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): In the next 11 months, Capricorn, you will be given some choice riddles about the art of togetherness. To solve them, you will have to learn much more about the arts of intimacy — or else! It’s up to you: Either work your ass off as you strengthen your important relationships, or else risk watching them unravel. But don’t take this as a grim, sobering assignment. On the contrary! Play hard. Experiment freely. Be open to unexpected inspiration. Have fun deepening your emotional intelligence. That approach will work best.




(July 23 - Aug. 22): According to the legends about Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table, the boy who would ultimately become King Arthur didn’t know he was heir to the throne while he was growing up. His future destiny was hidden from him. The wizard Merlin trained him but made sure he never found out he was special. When the old King Uther Pendragon died, a tournament was staged to find a replacement. The winner would be whoever was able to withdraw the enchanted sword that was embedded in a large stone. Quite by accident, our hero got a chance to make an attempt. Success! I have reminded you of the broad outlines of this tale, Leo, because at least one of its elements resembles your destiny in the next 11 months.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): “When one has not had a good father, one must create one,” said philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. What does that mean? How might you go about “creating” a good father? Well, you could develop a relationship with an admirable older man who is an inspiring role model. You could read books by men whose work stirs you to actualize your own potentials. If you have a vigorous inner life, you could build a fantasy dad in your imagination. Here’s another possibility: Cultivate in yourself the qualities you think a good father should have. And even if you actually had a pretty decent father, Scorpio, I’m sure he wasn’t perfect. So it still might be interesting to try out some of these ideas. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to get more of the fathering energy you would thrive on.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Hypothesis: The exciting qualities that attract you to someone in the first place will probably drive you a bit crazy if you go on to develop a long-term relationship. That doesn’t mean you should avoid seeking connections with intriguing people who captivate your imagination. It does suggest you should have no illusions about what you are getting yourself into. It also implies that you should cultivate a sense of humor about how the experiences that rouse your passion often bring you the best tests and trials. And why am I discussing these eccentric truths with you right now? Because I suspect you will be living proof of them in the months to come.

(Apr. 20 - May 20): As you weave your way through the next chapter of your story, I suggest you take inspiration from the turtle. You may even want to imagine that the turtle is your animal ally, a guide that helps you access the gradual and deliberate kind of intelligence you will need. Moving quickly will not be appropriate for the leisurely lessons that are coming your way. The point is to be deep and thorough about a few things rather than half-knowledgeable about a lot of things. There’s one other turtle-like quality I hope you will cultivate, too: the ability to feel at home wherever you are.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): America’s biggest winery is E & J Gallo. It sells more wine than any other company and has been named the planet’s “Most Powerful Wine Brand” four different years. Ernest and Julio Gallo launched the enterprise in 1933 after studying the art of winemaking in pamphlets they found in the basement of a public library in Modesto, California. I foresee a less spectacular but metaphorically similar arc for you, Gemini. Sometime soon — maybe it has already happened — information or inspiration you come across in a modest setting will launch you on the path to future success. There is one caveat: You must take seriously the spark you encounter and not underestimate it because it appears in humble circumstances.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): When a crocodile slams its jaws shut, the energy it summons is powerful. But when the beast opens its jaws, the force it exerts is weak. That’s because the muscles used to close are much more robust than the muscles used to open. I’m wondering if an analogous story might be told about you these days, Virgo. Are you more prone to close down than to open up? Is it easier for you to resist, avoid, and say no than it is to be receptive, extend a welcome, and say yes? If so, please consider cultivating a better balance. You need both capacities running at full strength in the coming days.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): “If I seem free, it’s because I’m always running.” So said Sagittarian musician Jimi Hendrix, widely regarded as one of the most inventive and electrifying guitarists who ever lived. Does that prospect have any appeal to you, Sagittarius? I don’t, of course, recommend that you keep running for the rest of your long life. After a while, it will be wise to rest and ruminate. But I do think it might be illuminating to try this brazen approach for a week or two. If it feels right, you might also want to mix in some dancing and skipping and leaping with your running.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): In 1961, Paul Cézanne’s painting “The Artist’s Sister” was on display at a museum in Aixen-Provence, France. Then a lucky event occurred: It was stolen. When it was finally recovered months later, it had been ripped out of its frame. An art restorer who was commissioned to repair it discovered that there was a previously unknown Cézanne painting on the back of the canvas. As a result, the appraisal of the original piece rose $75,000. Now both sides are on view at the St. Louis City Art Museum. I foresee a comparable progression in your life, Pisces. An apparent setback will ultimately increase your value.

Hike Up to the

Himalayan Kitchen


The Restaurant Guy

The locals favorite is BACK

Burgers • Steaks • Chicken • Chops & More!


new restaurant named Himalayan Kitchen, serving Nepalese, Indian, and Tibetan cuisine, has opened at  State Street, the former home of All India Café. The eatery offers a large vegetarian selection along with a variety of lamb, seafood, chicken, and yak dishes. Been craving yak dumplings? Your dreams have come true. I sat down with owner Karma Bhote, who told me that he, along with partner and Executive Chef Karma Tenzing Bhotia, operate the award-winning Tibet Nepal House of Pasadena and Himalayan Kitchen locations in both Santa Barbara and Durango, Colorado. Bhote is from the remote village of Chyamtang in Northeast Nepal near the Tibetan border. Himalayan Kitchen offers a very large menu, so I asked Bhote if he could recommend some specific dishes. From the Starters menu, he suggested you try the Mo-Mo. The most popular dish for Nepalese and Tibetans, mo-mos (steamed dumplings) are filled with your choice of vegetable, chicken, or lamb and served with achar. From the Nepalese Daal Bhaat section of the menu, Bhote recommends the combination plate Daal-Bhaat Tarkaari, a Nepalese traditional dish eaten by 90 percent of the population, which includes lentils, rice, and curry. From Chef Karma’s Specialties, Bhote suggested you try the Mixed Grill Platter, which is a feast of chicken breast, drumstick, and thigh, along with lamb and shrimp, seasoned with a variety of marinades overnight and then roasted in a tandoor. He also recommends the Kathmandu Sekuwa (chicken, mint, cilantro, ginger, garlic, and yogurt) and Sherpa Stew (chicken, lamb, vegetables, ginger, garlic, timboor, and rice), which is popular in the high-altitude regions. The Vegetarian menu includes 22 dishes, and Bhote highlighted Indian favorites including Saag Paneer (spinach, cheese, celery, mushroom, cilantro, and jalapeño chili), Motor Paneer (peas, MORE cheese, onion, and fenugreek), FOOD SEE P. 47

FAMILY AFFAIR: Son Tenzing Bhote, along with husband-and-wife team Diki and Karma Bhote, have opened a new State Street restaurant offering Himalayan cuisine.

and Paneer Masala (cheese, onion, tomato, and fenugreek), all popular in India. A Nepalese favorite is the Vegetable Sekuwas (vegetable skewers marinated in yogurt sauce and roasted in a tandoor oven). Tse Phing is a Tibetan favorite featuring pan-fried mung bean noodles, sautéed with mushroom, cabbage, carrot, celery, and onion. I am told that yak meat is new for Santa Barbara, and Bhote mentioned Yakisha Thenthuk (authentic Tibetan yak dish cooked with radish, potato, pasta, onion, celery, timboor, ginger, garlic, and chili) and Yaksha Mo-Mo (Tibetan steamed dumplings stuffed with ground yak seasoned with onion, garlic, ginger, and cilantro and served with mo-mo achar). Kheer is a traditional Nepalese dessert. Kheer is a South Asian rice pudding made by boiling rice, broken wheat, or vermicelli with milk and sugar; it is flavored with almonds, walnuts, and raisins. Bhote’s partner, Chef Karma Tenzing Bhotia, was born and raised in the remote Mt. Makalu region of northeast Nepal and has traveled extensively throughout the Himalayas. His travels helped him to learn the nuances of Himalayan cooking, a cuisine that utilizes black and white cardamom, jimbu, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, star anise, timboor, chili, turmeric, saffron, sesame, and mustard seed. Bhotia spent several years as a chef in Austria, enabling him to combine the bold flavors from his homeland of Nepal with the subtleties of European cuisine. Karma uses his expertise in Himalayan and European cooking along with fresh herbs and spices to create unique flavors in every dish. A gourmet lunch buffet is served daily 11 a.m.2:30 p.m., and happy hours are 3-5 p.m. The dinner menu is served Sunday-Thursday 5-10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 5-11 p.m. Himalayan Kitchen offers free delivery within four miles with a minimum order of $30. Catering is available. For more information, call 882-1000 or visit
