FANCY DANCING: DUI defense lawyer Darryl Genis (left) and his attorney, Michael Fremont, celebrated after Genis was exonerated Friday afternoon.



Video Shmideo DUI Attorney Cleared of Contempt Charges



prominent Santa Barbara defense attorney accused of tampering with and photographing an opposing prosecutor’s notes during a recent DUI trial has been cleared of any wrongdoing. Darryl Genis, facing three allegations in a contempt-of-court complaint, emerged victorious after an hour-long hearing Friday afternoon in front of Judge Donna Geck. “This is a classic case of why you hire good lawyers even when you’re innocent,” he told reporters outside the courtroom. In her ruling, which she said she was “reluctant” to give, Geck declared that the allegations had not been proved beyond a reasonable doubt. She provided no further explanation. The official counts were “abusing the process of the court by willfully deceiving the court,” “violating rules of court by photographing opposing counsel’s trial notes,” and “abusing the process of the court by interfering with the opposing counsel’s trial notes.” Each carried a potential $1,000 fine or five days in jail. The charges arose out of a June 9 incident in Judge Brian Hill’s courtroom that was caught on a surveillance camera. Pointing to that visual evidence and transcripts of the hearing, Hill alleged in the contempt filing that Genis had snapped a picture of prosecutor Justin Greene’s papers with his cell phone before hiding a document under a stack of files. Genis denied the allegations at the time, and his attorneys during this week’s hearing — Michael Fremont from San Diego and Donald Bartell of Riverside — reiterated his innocence to Geck. Fremont and Bartell presented a number of arguments for why the statements and exhibits 10


august 7, 2014

included in the contempt-of-court complaint should not be considered as evidence, claiming hearsay, lack of foundation, information not provided under oath, questionable authenticity of the surveillance video, and so forth. They also argued that when Hill initially confronted Genis with Greene’s accusations, it was unclear what exactly Hill was alleging — the judge’s language was vague and incomplete, said Fremont and Bartell — and that Genis had every right under due process to defend himself against the charges at the time. That denial, they said, could not be construed as “deceiving the court.” Genis’s defense attorneys also argued that the surveillance footage failed to prove Genis had taken a picture as no flash could be seen and no one in the courtroom testified to seeing the attorney use his phone to capture an image. Geck, who appeared incredulous if not slightly impatient with Fremont and Bartell’s arguments during the hearing, said she “couldn’t agree” that no photo was taken. Geck also interjected when Bartell said there was no evidence that Genis had touched Greene’s materials. “How can you say that?” Geck asked in reference to the video footage. Fremont and Bartell also stated that in trials, exhibits belong to the court not to individual lawyers and that attorneys frequently pick up and move documents from each other’s tables. They also noted that Genis’s supposed actions took place during a recess in the proceedings and that while Genis had been admonished by Hill in a previous trial not to record with his phone, Hill only specified video and audio recordings not still images. Even if Genis had touched Greene’s notes, they went on, it didn’t interfere with Greene’s ability to continue prosecuting the case when they came back from recess and so wouldn’t amount to “abusing the

process of the court.” Geck, at the time, appeared unconvinced. “But what justification does he have to touch anything?” she asked. Nevertheless, Geck’s ruling came swiftly and decisively, and Genis and his attorneys celebrated in the courthouse hallway afterward. Fremont said it was unfortunate that the court and the District Attorney’s Office had made such strong accusations in the first place, and he said he hoped all parties could move forward. Fremont explained “things happen” in the “heat of the moment” of trial and that it’s not uncommon for lawyers to lose their temper or “make stupid statements.” Even so, he went on, whatever acts Genis carried out didn’t justify the charges, and the video didn’t show the evidence of what the allegations claimed. When asked what the video did show him doing, Genis coyly responded, “I was collecting a piece of evidence,” before Bartell cut him off and said his client would not be issuing any more statements. (In two unrelated cases, Genis has appealed a February ruling by a State Bar of California judge, who recommended he be suspended for 90 days for committing misconduct and “multiple acts of wrongdoing.” State Bar attorneys are also appealing the ruling, arguing that the recommendation is too lenient. The appeal decisions are pending.) The contempt-of-court commotion temporarily eclipsed the far more serious evidentiary matter that Genis was pursuing when the video shenanigans occurred. At issue is whether prosecutors turned over to defense attorneys key evidence that they knew — or should have known — could have been used to attack the technical integrity of the blood-alcohol tests upon which their cases so heavily rest. If proved to be true, such a finding could call cont’d page 12 

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

No one was killed or stabbed during this year’s Fiesta, according to police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood, but the number of felony and misdemeanor arrests — 110 in all — was up substantially from the year before as were the number of DUI arrests and municipal code infractions and miscellaneous violations. The number of traffic and parking citations, however, dropped dramatically. Police budgeted $425,000 for costs, and up to 100 law enforcement officers were on the streets Friday and Saturday nights. Harwood noted the highest number of arrests took place at the start of Fiesta on Wednesday and Thursday nights. “It’s important to set the right tone from the start,” he said. Harwood added that the use of Klieg lights has proved highly effective. Likewise, he noted that this year’s Cruiser Run (the 35th) had an estimated 1,500 fewer bicycle riders than the previous year — which had 5,000 — and that 24 citations were issued, mostly for running red lights. He suggested Sunday morning’s light rain may have dissuaded some riders from participating. After police throughout Southern California went on the hunt for Joshua Ivan Martinez, 28 — accused of abducting his 6-month-old daughter, Nayeli, from Santa Barbara on 8/3 following a violent domestic dispute — he and the infant were caught in San Ysidro, near the Mexican border, on 8/4. The search prompted an Amber Alert throughout San Diego County that put all manner of law enforcement on high alert. The baby is safe, and no additional details were released.

CITY The City Council voted unanimously behind closed doors not to appeal Judge Colleen Sterne’s decision two weeks ago to reject the gang injunction first proposed by Police Chief Cam Sanchez and Mayor Helene Schneider in March 2011. Sterne ruled that the safety zones outlined in the proposed injunction were way too big, the statistics maintained by the city police department were way too nebulous, the expert witnesses were either not persuasive or not credible, traditional law enforcement techniques have proved effective, and most citizens were not living in a state of fear because of gang activity. Schneider said the council respected the judge’s decision but also pledged to maintain the safety of residents and tourists. Critics of the injunction objected how the decision to pursue it in the first place had been made behind closed doors, as well.

COUNTY Measure O — the November ballot item asking voters to increase the hotel bed tax in the county’s unincorporated regions from 10 percent to 12.5 percent — is a “sensible proposal” that would only be felt by visitors and could yield an extra $1.9 million for the county to spend on public safety, social services, and infrastructure, argued Supervisor Steve Lavagnino (on behalf of three of his colleagues) in recently released ballot language. Supervisor Peter Adam countered it would force tourists elsewhere and criticized his coworkers for championing this after denouncing Measure M, the failed June initiative that would have pegged millions of dollars annually


Third Time the Charm?

LATEST WRINKLE: Rick Caruso, the third developer to promise to rebuild the Miramar Hotel, is now unveiling his third plan for public review.

Los Angeles developer Rick Caruso has announced his intentions to submit a new set of plans for “reimagining” Montecito’s long-storied but long-dormant Miramar Hotel, which would make it his third go-around since acquiring the property in 2007. The new plans, which will have to run the gauntlet of Montecito’s design review process, promise “an intimate, smaller design,” reducing the number of rooms from 186 to 170. While Montecitans have been clamoring to have the hotel rebuilt, Caruso has not escaped the curse that seems to have afflicted the property since being shut down 14 years ago. Not only is he now on his third set of plans, but he’s also the third developer to attempt resurrecting what was once the first posh hotel on the coast. Early on, Caruso unleashed a formidable charm offensive, winning the fickle hearts and minds of Montecitans. But since securing the first county approval in 2008, nothing has been built. Hotel financing was in notably short supply in the wake of the recession. Two years ago, Caruso asked for and got a controversial tax break from the county as an incentive to deliver, but the two sides could not come to terms when it got to the fine print of the deal. Caruso’s announcement comes at a time when county planners are exploring plans with Caltrans to build a roundabout by San Ysidro and Coast Village roads to help address traffic issues there. Such a roundabout would impinge on a parcel that was to feature a new spa, but the parcel now calls for a parking lot. The new plans are slated to go before the Montecito Board of Architectural Review later this month and after that to — Nick Welsh the Montecito Planning Commission.

to maintenance spending. If a majority of voters okay Measure O, the new rate would take effect in January. A federal lawsuit filed last fall by Santa Barbara Channelkeeper and the Environmental Defense Center against Ojai Quarry owner Larry Mosler ended in a settlement this week. The environmental groups alleged that Mosler’s operations — positioned at the Lower North Fork of Matilija Creek, which feeds into the Ventura River — were polluting the water, to the possible detriment of endangered steelhead. Under the deal, Mosler will strengthen the quarry’s storm-water retention system, pave access roads, and abstain from mining when it rains.

GOLETA After 40 years, the Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre is heading for its last roundup and will be closing for good in October at the end of the current season. Word leaked out 8/1, shocking loyal theatergoers. Longtime producers David and Susie Couch got the word last May that their lease would not be renewed. Kathy Brown, whose family is the longtime owner of the Circle Bar B Ranch and Stables on Refugio Road, said the theater “has run its course” and that the Browns want to “go in a different direction,” with more lucrative operations, including weddings and barbecues.



Goleta City Councilmember Paula Perotte has submitted papers to run for reelection on November 4, according to the city clerk. Perotte earned her spot on the dais in 2010 and has been endorsed by former councilmembers Margaret Connell and Ed Easton, colleague Jim Farr, and county supervisors Janet Wolf and Doreen Farr. Also up for reelection in the Good Land are councilmembers Michael Bennett and Roger Aceves, who were both elected in 2006 and reelected in 2010. No other candidates have filed to challenge the three for their spots; the filing period started on 7/14 and ends on 8/8.

EDUCATION Each August, Princeton Review releases more than 60 lists of rankings ranging from most studious students (Harvey Mudd) to the most Birkenstock-Wearing, Tree-Hugging, CloveSmoking Vegetarians (Skidmore). But every year, unsurprisingly, it’s the party ranking we want to know about. The 2014 results are in, and UC Santa Barbara takes the number 3 spot for knowing how to party best, losing to Syracuse University and University of Iowa (taking UCSB’s last year’s rank of number 2). On a more academic note, UCSB continues to be regarded highly in Princeton Review’s The Best 379 Colleges. ■

Conservation Crawl Water Customers Cut Back by 18 Percent



ith 82 percent of California caught in the grips of what experts have dubbed “extreme drought” and 58 percent in something even worse —“exceptional drought” — Santa Barbara city water customers picked up the pace of their conservation somewhat, cutting back their use by 18 percent compared to the previous year. While that’s up from last month’s 15 percent, it still remains shy of the 20 percent voluntary reduction target set by the City Council in February. Ben Pitterle with the Santa Barbara Channelkeeper struggled to sound constructive as he exhorted the council to adopt a get-tough approach on water wasters by enacting mandatory restrictions, not just voluntary guidelines. Twenty percent, he suggested, was not enough, arguing that the voluntary approach yields limited returns; 27 cities throughout the state, he noted, have adopted mandatory restrictions. He also suggested City Hall should increase the money it pays homeowners to replace waterintensive plants with more drought-tolerant species. City Hall is currently increasing its rebates from a maximum of $1,000 per household to $1,100. But by comparison, Pitterle said, Oxnard is offering rebates of up to $3,000 to get its customers to replant. Councilmember Cathy Murillo also expressed impatience with the 20 percent target, arguing it should be twice that high. If ratepayers conserved by 40 percent, she suggested, perhaps the city would not feel so pressed to recommission its long-mothballed desalination plant at a onetime cost of $30 million. While the council won’t pull the trigger on the desal plant until next April — assuming minimal rains this winter — the environmental studies required to pass regulatory muster with the key state agencies will wind up costing City Hall about $650,000 more than initially estimated. Councilmember Bendy White, the council’s self-appointed drought scold, echoed Murillo’s sentiments, arguing the more aggressively the city conserves now, the better its options will be should the drought persist. Earlier in the day, acting water czar Joshua Haggmark suggested if the South Coast experiences two more years of drought, the capacity of the proposed desalination plant might need to be expanded beyond the 3,100 acrefeet now anticipated. Haggmark has responded

cautiously to calls for more aggressive enforcement actions, pointing out that any such new ordinances — politically extremely unpopular — must first be thoroughly vetted through the city’s exhaustive ordinance process. He promised to provide a blueprint for such ordinances at the council’s briefing on drought policies next month. In the meantime, city water conservation officer Madeline Ward noted that since February, her office has fielded 450 calls from residents complaining about excessive water use they’d witnessed, chiefly involving sprinkler runoff. The best way to lodge such complaints, she said, was via photo or video accompanied by a date and address. The city’s websites, she said, were equipped to accommodate social media transmissions of such information. Sitting in the front of the council chambers was retired attorney Stan Hatch — there for another matter — who more than anyone was responsible for the South Coast hooking into the state water system nearly 25 years ago. The wisdom of that decision has come under some revisionist scrutiny as the state water system — for the first time ever — has delivered somewhere between zero and 5 percent of the entitlements for which water agencies belonging to the South Coast Water Authority pay roughly $50 a year. Even though the city is spending much money and getting no water this year, Haggmark said the state water system is still paying for itself. The network of pipes and pumps is allowing Santa Barbara to import as much as 4,100 acrefeet of water — a little less than one-third its total demand — from water agencies throughout the state, including one in the Mojave Desert. Without that, Haggmark said, Santa Barbarans would find themselves confronting a water shortfall of 40 percent this year. Thus far, Santa Barbara’s South Coast has been designated by the U.S. Drought Monitor as being in a state of “extreme drought.” Only Santa Maria has been designated as being in “exceptional” drought, a distinction with which that city’s governing officials have taken issue. ■

Genis cont’d from p. 10


This Tuesday afternoon, prosecutor Hilary Dozer heaved a large box of 6,000 emails onto the attorneys’ table in the courtroom of Judge Clifford Anderson, prompting Anderson — who has inherited the dispute from Hill — to comment, “Don’t break my table.” At the very least, these emails should illuminate the extent to which prosecuting attorneys worried about the professional competence of the crime lab worker. Presumably, any blood-alcohol tests the employee conducted could be subject to challenge. By law, the prosecution is required to turn over to a defense attorney any evidence that might prove “exculpatory” or that could help impeach the validity of blood-alcohol test results. Legally, to withhold such information is a serious transgression. It’s premature to say whether the personnel file information — which Hill ordered sealed — would prove material to the outcome of current or past cases. But around courthouse circles, the issue has generated a significant buzz far beyond the theatrical personality conflicts that often accompany Genis. How many cases long settled might be given new life? With Hill’s recusal, it now falls to Anderson to wade through the 6,000 emails to determine what, if anything, they signify and what remedies, if ■ any, are required.



into question hundreds if not thousands of DUI cases still pending or long since settled. But early Monday morning, Judge Brian Hill responded to the failure of his contempt motion by announcing, without explanation, that he was recusing himself from two immediate cases involving the flamboyantly combative Genis, joining the ranks of Judge Frank Ochoa and retired judge George Eskin, who have both turned out the lights where Genis is concerned. Hill’s action left the Jennica Varela DUI case, from which the contempt action arose, temporarily without a judge. It is that case in which Genis has unearthed personnel records that cast doubt on the skills and reliability of a criminalist who worked at the Goleta forensics lab run by the California Department of Justice before resigning this February to take a high school teaching position in Fresno. While not ruling whether the new information would or would not taint the case, Hill did say he would allow Genis to introduce some of the adverse commentary included in the personnel file. And three weeks ago, he also ordered the District Attorney’s Office to assemble and turn over all emails between the criminalist and the department — and all emails on the same subject between prosecuting attorneys dating back to 2010.

EXIT PLAN: Michael Dyer (center) said he will retire in January after five years as the county fire chief.

Michael Dyer will retire in January on the Friday after his 55th birthday, he announced on Monday, which marked five years and one day since he took the helm of the County Fire Department and more than 36 years since he embarked on his public-safety career. Dyer made his decision known early to allow the county ample time to find his replacement, and he has a lengthy to-do list for County Fire in his remaining months. “I don’t think I’m going to be a lame duck of anything,” he said. The department’s goals, Dyer said, include “laying the foundation for future positions” and strengthening the EMT and paramedic programs. Some “critical positions” were lost during the recession, in full swing when Dyer arrived on the heels of the Tea and Jesusita fires in 2009; the number of full-time positions dropped from a high of 285 in 2009-2010 to 239 last year. But one of the chief’s primary accomplishments has been to find a way to increase the department’s share of property-tax revenues, from about 11 percent to eventually 16 percent and more on a par with other nearby fire agencies’ funding of 15 percent. Dyer had loomed large in the Los Angeles County Fire Department, holding the positions of firefighter, fire captain, battalion chief, and assistant fire chief, before becoming Santa Barbara’s chief. “This job — you sleep with a cell phone next to your head 24/7,” he said. He also remarked on his too-close acquaintance with tragedy as a reason to retire now: “I think my brother passing away at 49 and going to funerals here — we’re not immortal,” he said. “I know how fragile life is.” His own plans include spending time abroad, Dyer said, expressing excitement at learning Italian and spending a significant chunk of time in Italy, a country he has visited twice. His pension amount from Santa Barbara County remains unclear at this time, said Jeri Muth, the county’s human resources director, as he has a reciprocity agreement between here and Los Angeles County. According to Muth, Dyer’s current — Lyz Hoffman salary clocks in at $201,925.

On the Defensive Attorney, Activists Say Voting Rights Lawsuit Not Premature



rguing that legal action is the only way to implement a district election system and create a city council more representative of Santa Barbara’s population, attorney Barry Cappello invited reporters to his office last week to make his case. With the news of his voting discrimination lawsuit hot off the presses, Cappello, accompanied by four of the suit’s plaintiffs, claimed that the racial makeup of the current council violates 13-year-old California voting rights laws. An air of frustration filled the room for the entirety of the 30-minute conversation as Cappello stood at the head of a large table and the several attendees hovered behind the conference room chairs. Defending his lawsuit, Cappello took issue with the charge that it is “premature” and explained he hired an expert to study voting patterns over time before he took legal action. Racially polarized voting exists “without any question” in Santa Barbara, Cappello said, though the results of the study conducted by history professor Morgan Kousser — who worked on similar cases in Compton and Palmdale — are not yet public. Seven years ago, the Grand Jury recommended the city consider district elections, but nothing materialized, and councils have continuously failed to evenly spread resources to all neighborhoods, activists contend. For instance, the Cacique Street Bridge has not been repaired for 30 years, said plaintiff Frank Bañales, and the Eastside neighborhood is in need of more lighting and other basic improvements. A lifelong resident of the Eastside, Bañales ran for city council in 1991 — then as a Republican — and lost to Marty Blum, who served two terms on the council and as mayor. Now he’s a Democrat. Bañales also ran for mayor in the late 1970s, when he was admittedly “young” and “naïve.” Plaintiffs Sebastian Aldana and Cruzito Cruz also unsuccessfully ran for council seats. Standing in the back of the room was former councilmember Leo Martinez, who moved to New Mexico in the 1990s. Martinez, a longtime friend of Cappello, has recently been traveling back and forth to support the cause. Rumors recently circulated that he is coming back to

Santa Barbara to run for city council, but Martinez flatly denied it. Skeptics argue district elections are not the appropriate way to remedy the fact that very few Latinos have held a spot on the dais in a city where they make up 38 percent of the population. No current councilmembers have joined the movement, and they have urged activists to wait until Doug Johnson — a demographer hired by the city to conduct a voting study — finishes his research in September. The fact that Santa Barbara is a charter city has emerged as a possible roadblock to implementing district elections because voters would have to ratify such a change. Not so, said Cappello, who likened the logic to a city in Alabama that tries to outlaw black kids from going to school.“You can’t do that,” he said. According to City Attorney Ariel Calonne, the issue of voter ratification is still an “open question” because Palmdale is petitioning the issue in the California Supreme Court. In the past few years, a handful of other cities have made the shift from at-large to district elections. Compton is the only place where district elections have been implemented long enough to be successful, activists say. The first Latino was elected from one of the redrawn districts last year after voters passed the initiative in 2012. In Anaheim, an initiative will be placed on the November ballot after the city settled with the activists. But in Palmdale, the court battle could cost the city more than $3 million in legal fees if the city loses. A judge recently ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and invalidated the last November election, which gave a seat on the council to Fred Thompson, the first African American to win in a city with a population that is 14 percent African American. The case is still tied up in appeals in the Supreme Court. Several dozen community colleges — including Santa Barbara City College — have also made the move to district elections. District elections have worked just fine for the college, Trustee Marty Blum said, but she expressed some doubt for the city. She said, “It can get neighborhood against neighborhood” and lead to backdoor deals. Bañales’s response to such concerns is simply,“You don’t think that goes on now?” ■

John Perlin Shines a Light on the State of Solar Energy


alking with John Perlin is a little like chatting with an encyclopedia. His knowledge of the history of the solar power industry runs deep, and he drops dates and names like fruit falling from a tree. Most recently, the oil-rich Koch brothers’ attempts to stifle home-based solar installations — which can make our electricity meters run backward — have him concerned politicians will listen to the arguments of their lobbying group, ALEC, which stands for the innocuous-sounding American Legislative Exchange Council. ALEC is working with state legislatures to end net metering, arguing that solar-power homeowners selling excess electricity back to the grid is bad for business. Instead, ALEC is saying that those “freeriders,” according to a report in the Los Angeles Times, should instead be paying $50$100 in monthly fees, at the very least. Perlin recently spoke at the Intersolar North America conference (keynote delivered by Governor Jerry Brown) to celebrate the 60th anniversary celebration of Bell Labs’ invention of the modern photovoltaic, or solar, module. We caught up with Perlin, author of Let It Shine, before he headed to another solar conference in Aspen, this one featuring former president Jimmy Carter.




SunPower has some breaking news. It has an agreement with Audi, Volkswagen, Nissan, and Ford for deals on home solar-power installations with the purchase of plug-in vehicles, and also for battery storage for 4-6 hours of electricity use.

Most of us understand the carbon equation by now, but few of us are able to do much about it. You made a movie with Walter Kohn and Alan Heeger, Nobel laureates with the UCSB physics program, called The Power of the Sun in 2003. Did it help spur solar projects on campus? The movie played to an overflow audience at UCSB’s Campbell Hall on November 29, 2005. That inspired Student Affairs to implement solar on their buildings, but the various campus bureaucracies needed for approval of construction projects impeded their efforts. I helped them break through the barriers set up by the solar-phobic opponents, as well as spec the solar technologies needed to make sure the university was getting the best solar equipment on the market. We wanted to show the many skeptics that energy efficiency combined with renewables make a potent pair.

Direct Relief on the Way

UNPRECEDENTED: Despite some squeamishness by individual councilmembers, Thomas Tighe (center) of Direct Relief got the City Council to unanimously agree to sell the nonprofit eight acres of publicly owned property.


BY N I C K W E L S H s logistical challenges go, Thomas Tighe’s is a doozy. In response to the deadly eruption of the Ebola virus now ravaging Liberia and Sierra Leone, the executive director of Direct Relief needs to get his hands on 100 tons of surgical gloves and respirator masks in a hurry to ship to doctors in Africa. That takes up a lot of space, and Tighe says Direct Relief’s current quarters on La Patera Lane in Goleta aren’t nearly big enough. To that end, Direct Relief and Santa Barbara city administrators have been negotiating the details of a major real estate deal over the past two years that the City Council unanimously embraced this Tuesday. In broad outline, the City of Santa Barbara agreed to sell up to eight acres of “airport” land located on the north side of Hollister Avenue across from the city’s municipal airport for about $8 million. This will enable Direct Relief to build a new warehouse and administrative office space with about twice the capacity of its current location. Beyond size, Tighe said, there

are ever-escalating security requirements that state regulators impose on any agency that ships prescription drugs. The staff report described the proposed deal several times as “unprecedented,” a fact seized upon by some councilmembers in expressing their reservations about selling off public land. The City of Santa Barbara owns 88 acres of Goleta Valley property that it acquired as part of the broader airport package shortly after the end of World War II. For the past 20 years, city administrators have pursued countless development schemes without any success. Tighe noted it will take about two months for the ink to officially dry on the council’s vote. At that point, he said, the hard work of fundraising would have to begin in earnest. In addition to the price of the land, he estimated the buildings would cost another $20 million. While that would be daunting, he noted Direct Relief has an endowment of $34 million and raised $19 million in cash donations last year.

P Is for Pennies



s campaigns for and against Measure P gear up, new information continues to trickle in about how the initiative to ban all new fracking, acidizing, and cyclicsteam injection operations will impact the county and its coffers. A fiscal impact statement released this week states the ban would affect property-tax revenues — how much and when remains to be seen. Oil companies pay $20 million in property taxes, or 3.1 percent of the total, and approximately $12.7 million goes to schools. But the report does not break down the revenue brought in from “high intensity” operations. The number of such unconventional operations in the county is still being debated. At the heart of the dispute is whether or not an ordinance regulating maintenance or repairs that require energy division permits would eventually shut them down. The protocols being developed by the planning department would define this and other ambiguities, such as whether or not landowners with mineral rights would receive exemptions.

For proponents, the potential revenue lost is minimal in comparison to what’s at stake if a large-scale spill occurred. Yes on Measure P spokesperson Katie Davis said the initiative was what she expected because it would not have an “immediate impact” on tax revenues. Assemblymember Das Williams, who supports the measure, also warned that some of the roughly 800 oil operation applications — most of which are cyclic steam injection — that have been submitted to the county’s energy division will go forward before November. The Yes on Measure P campaign has raised $44,876, most of which was from individual donors; Davis donated $10,000. Supporters have previously stated it’ll take approximately $500,000 for them to be successful. The No on Measure P committee just formed, and it does not have any campaign finances to report as of the end of June. Campaign spokesperson Jim Byrne called the initiative “deceptive” and said he plans to educate voters about its widespread effects between now and November.

Inside the Santa Barbara Channel’s Whale-Versus-Ship Problem COU RTESY SB N HM



he results of the biggest study on earth’s biggest animal have upped the ante in a low-speed but highstakes game of chicken playing out in the Santa Barbara Channel. After 15 years of tracking 171 blue whales up and down the West Coast, biologists believe the North Pacific population of the endangered giants spends long stretches of the year in two key areas: a few miles north of San Francisco near the Farallon Islands and, to an even greater extent, the western end of the Santa Barbara Channel. Both sit in the middle of busy shipping lanes. The study, led by Oregon State University and published this week in PLOS ONE, spikes long-standing concerns over deadly collisions between cargo vessels and the whales, which cluster near San Miguel Island to feed on krill. The biggest overlap occurs between July and October, when the animals are fattening to migrate south for the winter and the tankers are rushing to Southern California ports to offload in time for the school year and holidays. Five blue whales were hit and killed in the summer of 2007, and deadly encounters with other whale species have occurred since, including an endangered finback whale found dead of blunt force trauma when its body floated into Ventura’s naval base last Tuesday. Officials said it was likely struck by a ship but are awaiting the results of a necropsy. Most incidents, however, go either unnoticed or unreported. Boats sometimes pull into port with a dead whale wrapped around their bow, but the negatively buoyant mammals usually sink after they’re hit. The injuries are severe and gruesome: burst blood vessels in blubber, shattered jaws and ribs, and normally dense muscle pulverized into mush. Of the three to five whales that wash up on California’s beaches every year, scientists think one to three of them were nailed by a boat — but for every recorded strike, five to 10 never make it into the books. With a heart as big as a VW Beetle and flippers as tall as you, blue whales were harpooned to near extinction before the International Whaling Commission issued strict protections in 1966. Of the 10,000 or so alive today — less than one percent of their original number — about a quarter live off the West Coast.

CASUALTY: Passersby gathered to see the carcass of a blue whale, which was found dead in the Santa Barbara Channel in 2007 after being struck by a ship and then floated east to Ventura’s Hobson Beach.

Marine mammal researcher Bruce Mate started attaching satellite tags to blue whales in 1993 in order to “collect general ecological information,” as no one even knew where the animals went to breed. His team charted the Truth out of the Santa Barbara Harbor during some of their trips to the Santa Barbara Channel, and often relied on the Condor and Condor Express for spotting until the study concluded in 2008. Along the way, the ship collision problem became apparent. No one knows why whales don’t notice large ships and get out of the way, but Mate theorized that “the location of the engines in the rear of the ship creates something of an acoustic shadow in front of them, making it hard for whales to hear the ship coming.” Ships also have little to no hope of seeing a whale in their path, as standard radar systems only detect other vessels. Even if a captain is lucky enough to spot a whale a mile ahead, it’s difficult and dangerous to take evasive maneuvers with a vessel that’s four stories high and a few football fields long.“You can’t just jerk the rudder without wrecking,” he said. The hits do minimal damage to boats, but they are sometimes hauled into dry dock while insurance companies conduct lengthy and expensive inspections. Captains can call (877) SOS-WHALE to report a strike.

To Mate, the idea of outfitting ships with sonic devices to scare whales presents practical and ethical dilemmas: Such contraptions don’t yet exist, and should we really deter whales from their prime habitat? The species population hasn’t rebounded as much as expected since 1966, but it’s unknown whether that’s due to food-chain disruptions, ship strikes, noise, or some combination thereof. In the last four years, the Santa Barbara Channel’s blue whale numbers are down, said Mate, while humpbacks are up. The study concluded by suggesting that shipping lanes be shifted away from blue whale feeding grounds. “It’s easy to regulate people, but it’s very difficult to change the habits of animals,” Mate said. Such a move was made last summer when the Santa Barbara Channel’s southbound lane was shifted one mile toward the mainland and away from the San Miguel krill zone. Geographically, the change was relatively straightforward, but the process was bureaucratically backbreaking, and how much it actually helped the whales is up for debate. Approximately 2,500 trips are made through the channel every year, with about the same number of transits taking place south of the islands. The lanes are completely voluntary, but they are the safest and quickest routes, as deter-

mined by the International Maritime Organization. Going behind the islands adds about 15 nautical miles to the journey along the coast, and paths are decided by individual shipping companies based on schedules, fuel costs, and so on. Trips from the Pacific Rim to Southern California harbors account for 40 percent of all American shipping imports. Shifting the lanes any further north and away from the blue whales’ hangout would prove difficult if not impossible given the narrow amount of wiggle room between the islands, the channel’s oil rigs, and the mainland. If many scientists had their druthers, the lanes would be moved completely south of the islands, but that could open new conflicts between ships, other whale species, and the U.S. Navy’s 36,000-square-mile offshore test range. T.L. Garrett, who represents 90-plus American carriers as vice president of the Pacific Merchant Shipping Association, said his group’s objective is to minimize or eliminate ship strikes. He said the recent study is “a good encapsulation of where we’re at” but that more research is needed before any new changes can be seriously considered. He pointed to a ship traffic scheme developed off the coast of Boston that relied on data from 350,000 whale sightings over a 24-year period. The ultimate goal, he said, is to develop a “dynamic management system” that can track whale locations inside and outside the channel in real time. Garrett lauded the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary’s respect of potential economic impacts to shippers when vetting new regulations, and he’s been similarly complimented for embracing progressive solutions, a rare collaboration in the often contentious dynamic between scientists and businesspeople. In a fortuitous stroke of good timing, a coalition of government, nonprofit, and environmental groups made a joint announcement on Monday that a trial incentive program has kicked off to slow ships in the channel. Reducing boat speeds from 14-18 knots to 12 knots or slower, explained Sean Hastings with the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, will better protect whales and also cut back on the massive amounts of pollution tankers spew into the air. The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District has frequently noted that 50 percent of the area’s smog-forming pollution comes from the smokestacks of big ships passing through. Six global shipping companies have signed onto the program and agreed to slow down in exchange for $2,500 per trip. There’s only enough funding for 16 reimbursements, though the coalition fielded 25 requests to be included in the trial. “It’s a great problem to have,” said Hastings, who hopes more money will become available. Since 2007, the sanctuary and Coast Guard had asked ship captains to voluntarily ease back on the throttle, but the effort was a dud. “This time,” said Hastings, “we’re putting more carrots on the table.” The new push was created after similar incentive programs in SoCal ports saw compliance rates above 90 percent. “It doesn’t always need to be regulation and lawsuits,” said Hastings of the model. Stressing that safe navigation for all channel boaters is at the forefront of the sanctuary’s efforts, Hastings said the organization will continue to look at how big of an impact last year’s lane shift has had on the blue whales, and what additional changes should be studied to better protect the air and the animals, even after they swim away.“We might just change the world here in a very small part of the ocean,” he ■ said.“And isn’t that the idea?”

Dog Daze and Dazed Dogs


just gave the acting performance of a lifetime. But instead of winning an Oscar, which he richly deserves, he’ll probably get a prison term, which he might also deserve, once the jury returns from the deliberations they started this week. Tall and thin with wispy blond hair, David Lack has been a fixture in local Republican Party circles since the early 1990s, when he emerged as right-hand man to Michael Huffington, the pathologically secretive carpetbagging Texas billionaire who moved to Montecito so he could run for the U.S. Senate against Dianne Feinstein back in 1994. There is little question that Huffington would have beaten Feinstein had his shape-shifting succubus of a wife — the luminescently self-obsessed Arianna Huffington — not gotten herself busted for hiring an illegal nanny just moments after Michael — in a calculated, craven act of gratuitous opportunism — endorsed an egregiously anti-immigrant statewide ballot measure. Since then, Arianna has famously — and lucratively — reinvented herself as a respectably liberal one-woman media mogul, Michael as the reclusive gay guy he always should have been, and David as a area building contractor and political jet-setter seemingly successful enough to donate $42,000 to various Republican candidates in 2008. The David Lack I knew was engaging, affable, and seriously plugged in. His offices were famously wallpapered with grip-n-grin photos of him and every Republican to run for president since Abraham Lincoln. But the

David Lack I saw take the witness stand in his own defense against embezzlement and fraud charges bore no resemblance to the guy I’d casually known the past 20 years. The guy on the stand — mouth agog and agape — resembled the proverbial turkey in a rainstorm at risk of drowning. He would have lost an argument to the raisins in his morning bowl of oatmeal. It was sad. It was also morbidly fascinating. Lack and his defense attorney, Robert Sanger, sought to convince those poor souls trapped in the jury box that David was simply too simple to con anybody out of anything. It was the Forrest Gump defense minus the Southern accent and box of chocolates. Running Lack to ground was prosecuting attorney Brian Cota, who looks like he stepped out of an ad for expensive designer eyewear. Looks can be deceiving. Cota has always punched beyond his weight and has emerged as the reincarnation of Dick Tracy, waging a one-man jihad against Santa Barbara’s white-collar crooks. Lack’s troubles started when he persuaded Montecito resident Mary Belle Snow to invest $300,000 in a new bank he was trying to start. Snow was then a feisty conservative bloggeractivist quick to write five-digit checks to Republican Party candidates. She and Lack became fast friends, crisscrossing the country in private jets to attend high-octane GOP functions in places like Boca Raton and Las Vegas. Things happened, and Lack wound up spending most of Snow’s money. Somehow, he never got around to telling her. When Snow found

out, she was exceedingly not happy. Having high-ranking friends in the police department, she knew how to make her pain felt. When Cota started rooting around in 2010, he would discover that back in 2007, Lack told a couple of major league whoppers when applying for — and getting — lines of credit worth $1.2 million from two area banks. In listing his personal assets, Lack told the banks he owned two pieces of real estate — one in Montecito and one in Texas — worth $1.5 million. With that kind of collateral, the banks were only too happy to green-light Lack’s request. When the recession struck a year later, Lack defaulted. That’s when the banks discovered he didn’t really own any real estate. In fact, he never had. In the legal world, that’s called fraud. In this case, I didn’t know who to root more against. To the extent Republicans claim to embrace personal responsibility as civic virtue, Lack wasn’t having any of it. Instead, he sought refuge in victimhood, the moral weakness favored by bleeding-heart liberals. If Lack signed false documents, that was because his financial advisers kept foisting papers at him to sign. Lack was such a bad reader, he testified, he’d never read a book. How was he supposed to understand what he was signing? Better yet, Lack blamed Bank of Santa Barbara founder Gregg Bigger for instructing him to lie about owning real estate that he really didn’t. Bigger, for the record, denied this. Admittedly, the accusation seems far-fetched. But then, I myself was coached by loan officers on how to lie and

Reaching New Heights

exaggerate when making a loan application many moons ago. The more I heard from Bigger on the witness stand, the more astonished I was by the scope and breadth of his amnesia about pretty much anything, even whether he was a Republican or not. It turned out Bigger had lobbied Lack back then to become a titled officer in the area party machine. To the extent Lack screwed Bigger and his bank, it seemed like consensual sex. Lack was at the top of his game; Bigger wanted Lack’s business. They were both using each other. That’s just good business, I suppose. But what kind of business is it that Bigger’s bank — and Rabobank, as well — never bothered to verify Lack’s financial statement? And weren’t they the least bit suspicious that Lack would claim to have absolutely no debts, liabilities, or outstanding loans? At the very least, such a profile is highly unusual. If Lack’s alleged real estate holdings really sealed the deal — as Cota has alleged — then it’s equally true that the banks were not just asleep at the switch but had taken an overdose of Ambien. One phone call to the county assessor would have exposed Lack’s fraud in 15 seconds. End of story. With banking practices like this, little wonder the whole world economy imploded and exploded simultaneously seven years ago. I, for one, will sleep much better knowing that David Lack’s going to the slammer for his sins. But I’ll keep the Ambien on hand just to make sure. — Nick Welsh

// – //

Recently, a quiet, gentle man passed into heaven. He slipped away as unassuming as he was in life. Charles Gerald Hall was born in South Bend, Indiana on August, th, , to MaryAnn Wartha Hall and Charles Hall. The family moved to California in  and Charles attended San Fernando High School, graduating in . He enlisted in the United States Air Force serving  years with an honorable discharge. Hall worked for the May Company until he pursued a career in banking for Barclays. Much later he worked for Bob Gervasoni and Sears. When his jobs phased out, he found himself homeless in Santa Barbara, his beloved home since . He wouldn’t dream of living anywhere else even though family offered homes in Idaho and Montana. Charles lived in his vehicle for some time. He had several friends on the streets. Charles helped many street friends financially and in any way he could. He served on an advisory committee for WORTH Street Reach in an effort to aid more seniors to get off the streets. His experiences were valuable to us. Fortunately, Charles was housed in the last years. Charles leaves behind a large, beautiful family who loved him dearly. His sister Kathy (Bob) Rosenthal of Montana, his sister Pat (Bernard) Kelly of Idaho,  nephews,  nieces,  great nieces,  great nephews,  great-g nephew and  great-g niece and several friends. Homelessness can affect anyone at any time, men, women, families and many veterans. Seniors phased out of jobs early but unable to obtain another job are most vulnerable, and numbers are quickly growing. We are most grateful that Charles was housed in his last  years. He will truly be missed. A simple memorial will be held for friends and family at Shoreline Park, north end,  Oct at pm.

She attended Santa Barbara City College and UCLA earning a bachelor’s degree in Art. Later she earned a master’s degree from Loyola Marymount University in Clinical Therapy with a specialization in Art Therapy. Her passion was to help people through art. Shortly after graduation, Elizabeth joined the Peace Corps and was assigned to the island of St. Vincent, in the Caribbean. In St. Vincent Elizabeth counseled children using her skills as an Art Therapist. While there she wrote a book on conflict resolution that is still used in the schools there. She met Osbourne Guy in St. Vincent and married him there in . Elizabeth and Osbourne moved back to Santa Barbara for a short time before she joined UNICEF and moved to Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia.

The Food Crisis in South Chad People Flee War and Genocidal Violence in Central African Republic BY WILLIAM FELSTINER , president of Chad Relief Foundation, a Santa Barbara nonprofit COU RTESY

august 7, 2014



food crisis faces the families in United Nations refugee camps in south Chad, which are populated by about 78,000 people fleeing genocidal violence in the Central African Republic. When I recently returned from the Chad Relief Foundation’s (CRF) 10th mission there, the camp population had grown by 98,000 returnees — Chadian citizens who have been living in the Central African Republic and are settled in makeshift camps along the border. Although the estimates of the food rations that the refugees receive do not all jibe, it is clear that there are serious shortages with serious consequences and no miracle in sight that will set things straight. Moreover, the nearly 100,000 returnees are generally in worse shape than the refugees and are dependent on many of the same resources. And the large numbers of new refugees place additional strain on the limited supply of land, tools, and seeds. Hunger eats away at all activities, including work and school. We were told several versions of the current food ration, the consensus being that the refugees are receiving somewhere between 21 percent and 40 percent of the international standard set by the UN (2,100 calories per person per day). The deprivations were said to be worse for the nomadic refugees and for girls. Whatever the version, unless substantial improvement takes place by September, our contacts agree widespread malnutrition and death are likely to occur. How do the refugees cope with not having enough to eat? They forage for wild roots, gather wood (illegally) in the forest to sell, hang around the market looking for scraps, try to find the odd job, trade sex (illegally) for food or money, steal, sell other stuff. Those who know how to farm can farm when the rains come — if they have seeds, tools, and land.

SHORT RATIONS: New arrivals escaping the chaos of the Central African Republic live in open-sided tents and face serious food shortages.

I heard a couple of food reallocation plans while I was in Chad, and though they may have been overtaken by events by now, they illustrate the complexity of the problems. One idea is to eliminate the ration for longtime refugees and restore it for new refugees — this would only affect sorghum, not the oil and salt refugees receive — the thought being that established refugees have some resources and can cope without food aid. In Gondje camp, older refugees were confident that if they had seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides, they could manage. But in Amboko camp, where refugees had cultivated the same fields for more than 10 years, they were alarmed because the fields were overworked and had become unproductive. Another plan is based on a 2012 household economic analysis that divided the refugee population into four groups: () Vulnerable refugees would get total assistance, () less vulnerable folks would initially get total assistance but face reductions, () better-off refugees would get little assistance on a case-by-case basis, and () the well-off would get nothing. Such a regime is said to have worked in Mali. The problem is that the system is based on 2012 determinations of size for the four groups. New refugees change the proportions (and in the direction of the more vulnerable), and the aggregate need will get greater, but the supply may not. Everyone I asked said that the Chad Relief Foundation’s highest priority should be food assistance. We are too late to help with the grands champs (“great fields”) program that is just about to get underway. But we will provide assistance to the winter vegetable gardening program that begins in October. The more support Chad Relief Foundation (chadrelief .org) gets from the Santa Barbara community, the more we will be able to help these hungry ■ people.

Bike Ride Blues


he Fiesta Cruiser bike ride, a 30-plus-year tradition, typically involves thousands of riders in a very happy and somewhat chaotic event, but free of injury, property damage, and general negativity. Complaints of congestion recently led to an increased police presence, but Sunday’s felt just short of fascist. I’m a big proponent of Santa Barbara’s police, but they did serious harm to their public image on Sunday. The ride started with a police banner threatening a $500 ticket for traffic violations, and the typically lively crowd rode quietly because of constant berating by the very aggressive and imposing officers (who issued many $500-$800 tickets). It’s ironic that a community that promotes bicycle use as essential to our well-being is also very much against this event, and it’s a shame that a fun event with so much potential has been irreparably damaged. — Morgan Senzamici, S.B.

Wise Surmise


hat a strange way to promote a new restaurant [“Meatless on the Mesa,”]! Chef Arnold’s implications that Mexican and Asian restaurants typically cook in “shitty oil” and that there’s something inherently wrong with Trader Joe’s bread did hurt my foodie sensitivities. Praising your own fresh and meatless food would have made a lot better impression than denigrating competitors; thankfully there are lots of them in Santa Barbara. — Auli Ek, S.B.

“Four of the 20 contraceptives effectively prevent fertilized eggs from implanting themselves into the uterine wall, thus stopping an unintended pregnancy before it starts. Hobby Lobby … regards this as murder to which it will not be an accomplice” and that it is a debatable point. It is not. It is absolutely untrue. IUDs, and emergency contraception, interfere with sperm, not with embryo implantation, according to WebMD. The products Hobby Lobby decided to disapprove of after the Affordable Care Act was implemented do not cause abortions. And, in “’Bubble Ordinance’ Not Yet Popped” [], the news story refers to a Florida gynecologist as an “abortionist.” Is this the 1950s? That term is outdated and ridiculous. Proctologists perform colonoscopies; they are not called colonoscopists. Dentists are not root canalists. To define doctors by one of the procedures they are trained to do does not make sense grammatically and, in this case, makes the medical provider sound like some sort of medieval executioner. Abortion is something that can save women’s lives. Even the most ardent “pro-life” folks recognize this — they just want people to be forced to die for their ideology even if the fetus can’t be saved and the mother can. I was raised by these types of people (during the turbulent 1980s), so I know what I’m talking about!

on the beat

Six Santa Barbaras? Which brings us to the Eastside, a mostly Latino neighborhood and one of the reasons for district elections. It seems reasonable to add East Beach, downtown, and lower State, which are contiguous. Then there’s the Latino Westside and nearby areas, like East Beach. That’s five. Which leaves the upscale Upper East, with its high-income political activism and home of Representative Lois Capps. To make its size comparable to other districts, you could add the Laguna neighborhood and Oak Park. Do some tinkering to add or subtract fringe areas where logical. And I’m sure the judge will require equal populations in the six. Attorney Cappello, a hard guy to beat, says his experts have done their studies and conclusively proved that Latino voters have been getting the short end of the election stick due to at-large voting that dilutes Latino balloting. Some California cities hit by similar suits have surrendered. Others, like Palmdale, the High Desert poster child

for digging in its cowboy heels, lost in court, appealed, lost again, and reportedly has racked up a $3 million legal bill. And that bill’s still growing, now that the city has taken its “never” stance to the state Supreme Court, which, no doubt, will refuse to hear it. To my knowledge, no California city has ever successfully defended one of these CVRA cases. The Santa Barbara City Council, of course, could punt, tossing the hot potato to the voters, who according to those who take the public’s political temperature, seem sure to reject district elections.

Why go from being able to vote on six councilmembers to just voting for one, plus the mayor, who would still be elected at-large? One reason, other than the California Voting Rights Act, is better neighborhood representation. You’d have “your” councilmember rather than phone numbers at City Hall. “A representative who’d go to bat for the district,” Eastsider plaintiff Frank Bañales said at last week’s Cappello press conference. “So that we can be part of the process.” The Eastside needs street lighting, and there’s a bridge that’s been out for 30 years, Bañales said. But Leo Martinez, once one of Santa Barbara’s rare Latino city councilmembers and now living in New Mexico, said, “The Santa Barbara power structure doesn’t want district elections. The Democrats should be helping us.” So should the ACLU, he said. COURTESY S.B. HISTORICAL MUSEUM

SPLITSVILLE: If the city is to be divided into six city council voting districts — one for each seat — where do you draw the lines? Well, since so far no one’s come up with a plan for the half-dozen neighborhoods that will be able to pick “their” council members, I have. Attorney Barry Cappello, who sued the city last week, contending that it’s violating the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA), says he hasn’t proposed the six Santa Barbara district boundaries, nor have his plaintiffs. That, he says, depends on what his experts come up with and what the judge okays when he or she slaps the Good Housekeeping Stamp of Approval on the switch from at-large to district elections. Premature expectations, I guess. Which is exactly what Mayor Helene Schneider said of Cappello’s lawsuit. The City Council isn’t buying this district election switch, at least until it hears from its own expert. It, in the time-honored words of Ann Landers, isn’t ready to wake up and smell the coffee. What are Barney’s six districts? Actually, they’re pretty logical, if you look at the city map. For starters, the Mesa seems like one geographical area of mutual interests, including what the city calls Upper Mesa and Bel Air. Then there’s the Hope-San Roque-Foothill area of the Northside. Mostly homeowners. That’s two. The Riviera, lower Riviera, and Eucalyptus Hill seem to have mutual concerns. That’s three.

o many important things begin at house parties. In your teenage years, the free-form, fun-time satori that a good and proper house-bound fiesta breeds is ripe for kick-starting things like the loss of virginity, your first real beer buzz, a boundary-testing fistfight, or perhaps your first confirmed sighting of a marijuana cigarette. As you grow, the milestones and metrics change, but the ingredients stay much the same: interesting people, libations, some tasty food, multiple rooms to wander through, and, of course, music. Good music. Put all these variables under one roof sans health codes, bouncers, or cover charges, and special things are all but guaranteed to happen. It was in just such environs that I found myself this past December, a week before Christmas to be exact, at a sprawling sort of compound at the dead end of a private road just above Rincon in the hills of Carpinteria. The place was pulsing with smiley-faced youthful energy, a healthy crowd of twenty- and thirty-somethings enjoying each other and the wonderful world around them as 2013 came to a close. A silly-delicious gluten-free and vegan chocolate cake shared in the kitchen among friends and friends of friends gave way to a joint, which gave way to the realization that the music I was hearing and unconsciously enjoying was live in its origin. Ducking out a side door, I followed the guitar-heavy rhythms into a separate building, the spaced-out Allman Brothers–circa-1978 sound drawing me in and putting my head on bounce. There has been much ado made of late about the anemic and waning Santa Babylon music scene — a choruslike gripe that I have certainly been a part of — but as I entered that smoke-filled and surprisingly lava-lamp-devoid space, it was clear that such rumors of ill-health had been greatly exaggerated. Good and local and fresh live music wasn’t dead; we had just been looking in the wrong places.

rock ’n’ roll and up-tempo blues with occasional sprinby Ethan Stewart • Photos by Paul Wellman kles of boot-stomping folk, roots reggae, and (gasp!) some head-bang-worthy metal. Even better, those melodies have begun to spread up the coast and in toward the mountains, dovetailing nicely with an equally renewed and heavily related music scene out the Ojai way. “It has been pretty refreshing to discover,” observed Vaughn Montgomery recently.“It’s a real living culture thing, lots of young Though I didn’t know it at the time, the jam that was hap- guys playing music with this feeling of genuine righteousness.” pening, featuring three guitars, drums, bass, and a bunch of less Once a pillar of a somewhat similar youth push in the S.B. music musically inclined folks on vibes, was an impromptu super group scene of the late ’90s and early 2000s, Montgomery — who has of sorts, virtually all of the individuals involved belonging to their been “hiding out in Ojai and raising a family” for the past couple own bands or being actively hustling solo artists.

Make no mistake: weekly organized jam sessions at The Deer Lodge in Meiners There is a musical renaissance of sorts underway in that quaint Oaks. “There isn’t really any money being made by anyone. It is little seaside hamlet to our south. More to the point, from house not the normal hustle that is typically going on in music or the art parties and standing-room-only affairs at The Palms to sold-out scene. It’s a lot more about we and less about I, something I think underground hootenannies at the Brothers of Industry work- we all are sort of starving for.” space and sunny-day mellow grooves in the shade of the Torrey While this largely Carp-rooted musical momentum casts pine tree outside of the Lucky Llama, the youth movement has a a wide net as far as participants and genres go — acts like the soundtrack of its own making: a sandy-footed blend of late-’70s Rainbow Girls, Montgomery’s group little big here, Sparrows Gate, and Aaron Embry are certainly a part of it as either direct participants, influencers, or some combination of the two — the tip of the spear is best illustrated by a trio of groups, all of whom The Santa Barbara Independent preshad members rocking together during that fateful house party ents Indy Live featuring Afishinsea the jam this past winter.

AFISHNSEA THE MOON Besides a curious take on spelling, Afishnsea the Moon ( also seems to have a problem with being pigeonholed. Give the boys a listen, and you will no doubt feel challenged to label their sound, which is a little bit rock and a little bit funk mixed up with a healthy dose of tie-dye psychedelic, Santana-esque rhythms, and mega-spooky swamp jams. Really, the only entirely accurate descriptor would be along the lines of, “It makes you shake what your momma gave you … and then some.” I’ve seen these guys gig at freaked-out backyard BBQs in the hills near Ojai and empty and sad soggy-paper-bag weeknight shows on State Street, and one thing is always guaranteed to happen: The people in attendance, even the most stiff-backed of wallflowers, begin to dance. The ladies seem to like them, too. A self-described “baby band,”Afishnsea the Moon (ATM) has been official for over two years, a union that was forged in beer- and whiskey-soaked practice sessions every Tuesday night in lead guitarist Lauren Luther Campbell’s garage (and, yes, he knows his name sounds like it was made for porn). All five band members — Campbell, drummer Adam Camardella, bassist Chris Riley, rhythm guitarist Javier Morales, and frontman Johnny McCann — call Carpinteria home, the bulk of WEIRD RULES: Unable and unwilling to conform their sound to just one thing, Afishnsea the Moon (above with dog and giraffe) can run the musical spectrum during a set, from slow-skanking reggae rhythms to whiskey-drinking good-times theme music to down-and-dirty Southern swamp rock, and are led by bouncy-haired frontman Johnny McCann (left).

them having grown up there. In fact, 4/5ths of the crew was playing together in that casual sort of longtime-friends way until Carp commercial fisherman Andy Perry introduced them to one of the South Coast’s finest imports from the shores of Alabama, Johnny McCann. A true musical renaissance man and fan of fine white fur coats, McCann tied the group together and helped blast them to the next level. As Riley put it,“Adding Johnny Alabama to the mix really rounded out our sound. Music just pours out of the guy.” Since then, the group has been gigging hot and heavy throughout Carpinteria and Santa Barbara at venues and house parties alike (they’ve also been tapped for an upcoming Patagonia campaign), and their sets are always exclamation marked by a big giraffe onstage. “Our style is all styles,” summed up McCann.“We aren’t afraid to change it up and match the vibe of wherever we are.”

Gently melt fat away!

To paraphrase a pal, Pleasure ( belongs to a little-known subgenre of the musical universe best described as “patchouli metal.” A no-frills four-piece, the band makes for curious visual company at first blush. Drummer Tony Melino, bassist Taylor Hellewell, and lead guitarist Wes Wilson all look the part of a high-energy heavy-rock band: good head-banging hair, dark clothes, etc. But then there is vocalist and frontman Chris Everett, who, with his blond dreadlocks, big beard, disdain for footwear, and soft, sympathetic brown eyes, seems more a surfed-out, crystal-gazing neo-hippie than the lead vocalist and axe wielder in a band that can make your eardrums bleed. Case in point, at a Saturday-night show at the Deer Lodge in late July, Everett, who had just driven in from the woods of Mount Shasta, wandered his way through the band’s first song, prompting a cat call of “Stoner!” from the crowd. He responded with a sly and smiling look of cocked-head disbelief before laughing back, “For sure!” and then dove straight into a mojo-rising and ripping technical guitar riff that woke the whole place up and then some. That, in a nutshell, is Pleasure. “People always tell me, ‘You guys are a metal band’ or something crazy like that,” explained Everett during an early-morning interview a few weeks back. Shoeless and dressed in a poncho and short shorts that seem hijacked from 1986, he tugged at the curled corner of his mustache, “I just don’t see it that way. We are more of an old-school ’70s rock band. You know, Thin Lizzy, Blue Öyster Cult, or ZZ Top or Cactus. I guess we can be pretty fired up sometimes, and we like to play fast, so maybe that is what they are responding to.” And respond they do. Just ask the management at The Palms, who hosted a Pleasure show a while back

that featured everything from raucous crowd surfing and tripped-out, spinning, noodle-armed hippies to a makeshift mosh pit and one extra-zealous fan shaking a front window until it smashed.“For sure, it can get radical,” said Everett matter-of-factly. Interestingly enough, Pleasure, which originally included current Pacific Haze frontman Zach Doiron, had broken up and all but disbanded earlier this spring. Doiron was gone, drummer Tony Melino left the band due to frustrations over scheduling difficulties, a proper new drummer was hard to find, and Everett and the others were kicking the tires on different projects and interests. But then the surf world came calling. An early EP, For Your Listening …, had been discovered by Conner and Parker Coffin, two brothers from Montecito who are rising stars in the international surf scene. The Coffins had scored some of their videos with Pleasure’s tunes. Conner even showed up to jam with the boys on occasion. Then, shortly after Pleasure started fading into oblivion, Conner hit the band up requesting new tunes for a bigger film project, set to be released later this year. “It was the slap in the face we needed,” said Everett. “And we have been putting it back together ever since.”

“Just get yourself a bike, a babe, some beers, and head out north on the . Our music will be the perfect soundtrack for the ride,” summed up Zach Doiron, lead guitarist of Pacific Haze (pacifichaze .com), and, well, after listening to them play, I think the born-and-raised Carp muso is spot-on. They throw it back with a rollicking and free Americana rock blues sound à la The Band that, depending on who is leading the vocals, can trend toward some major-league, honey-dripping, Southern-fried soul. The newest of the three bands, Pacific Haze also could be the most polished of the lot. Though they only officially began this past spring, they came together out of the ashes of the once-proud but now-defunct Carpinteria band Sprout, an outfit that performed to critical acclaim 20092012. Pacific Haze started its journey when Doiron and fellow Sprout refugee Colin Shepherd (guitar and harmonica) were hanging and creating music with Wesley Birch last summer up in Bodega Bay at the Rainbow Girls’ cabin. After they laid some tracks down, it occurred to them that they were onto something and thus began the search to properly flesh out a band. In time, Birch was convinced

STARTED AS A SPROUT: Pacific Haze (pictured rocking the Cantina stage during Fiesta earlier this month) is the real deal, a hard-hustlin’ and road-savvy rock band with major guitar chops and an appreciation for a more analog way of life.

to convert to the bass, Nick Hansink was recruited to handle percussions, and, after trying out all sorts drummers, East Coast transplant Zachariah Godlove assumed control of the skins. The coming together was so fast and fluid that the boys hopped in a van just a few months after forming and took off on a summertime tour, gigging and busking their way around the northwest for the past two months.“It’s been a great tour, just as unendingly wild as we could have hoped for,” said Doiron during their final days on the road. “Lots of good people and places, as well as plenty of not so amazing ones …. Though they make for good stories, I suppose.” Shortly before heading out, in fact part and parcel to their fundraising efforts toward said tour, Pacific Haze put on a show with Pleasure and ATM at a woodworking space in Carp that occasionally pulls covert double-duty as a venue. The night was a blissed-out blur for all in attendance, with the music being the biggest takeaway outside of the hangover that many surely woke up with. Though the bands all played their own individual sets, they also regularly sat in with each other, helping spin the whole affair into one big, feel-good family affair that you could definitely, at least at times, legitimately bang your head to. “Rockin’ out with the boys is always a blast! Both bands bring so much love to the stage every time we play with them; it definitely pushes us,” explained Dorion of the unique bond between his band and Pleasure and ATM.“Rivalry isn’t the right word — it’s something more along the lines of a brotherhood, that respect that comes from knowing what it is like to get a band together, write, rehearse, record, and perform in front of your peers. You see them put on such a passionate performance, and half of you is in awe and the other half says, ‘We gotta go out there and give it up even harder.’ We push each other to get better.” ■

women’s surf school, iSurf School has announced the launch of its Watergirl Fund, a program that will provide scholarships for surf instruction to girls ages 5-15 and introduce surfing to those who otherwise couldn’t afford access to the sport. iSurf has partnered with numerous area businesses to make the Block Party a reality. “We are completely humbled by the support of the community to make this event a major success,” said iSurf owner Alelia Parenteau. “It’s amazing to see how many people think this cause is important and see the value of this program and of surfing in general to the young girls in our community.” The event, which will be hosted by the Valley Project and Pali Wine Co., will include a silent auction, raffle, music, a pig roast, and beer and wine. iSurf hopes to raise $15,000 to provide scholarships for up to 30 girls to attend the after-school program. — Lawrence Moody

Humans’ fascination with sharks seems insatiable. Consider the popularity of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, the resonating legacy of Jaws, and even the cult hit Sharknado. For Santa Barbarans, shark sightings aren’t just via television, however; the toothy critters have been spotted up and down our coastline. To educate folks about the giant finned fish, the S.B. Maritime Museum (SBMM) has invited Ralph Collier, a leading expert on Pacific Coast white shark behavior and ecology, to give a talk titled Should I Get a Bigger Boat? Shark Attacks on Boats, People, Dogs, and Seals. Collier will share current theories as to why sharks go after surfboards, boats, crab traps, and people. Peter Howorth, the director of the S.B. Marine Mammal Center, will join Collier, giving insight into how studying shark attacks on marine mammals can serve as warnings of potential strikes to the human population. The lecture takes place Friday, August 8, 7 p.m., at SBMM, 113 Harbor Way. For reservations and information, call 962-8404 x115 or visit — Michelle Drown

t could be said that Lynn Houston is flying high. Houston, who was born in Webb City, Missouri, is the driving force behind A Different Point of View, a Santa Barbara nonprofit that offers flying lessons to underprivileged youth throughout the county. A Different Point of View was established in June 2011 with the intent to “engage, inspire, and transform” kids in need. “Through aviation education and mentoring, we show them a world they’ve never seen before,” Houston explained. “Many of our youth come from lowincome households or the juvenile justice system and lack a belief in their ability to succeed in this world.” The teens in the program experience a three-day aviation program in which — in addition to receiving flying lessons from professional instructors affiliated with the Above All Aviation flight school — they are taught the mechanics and inner workings of an airplane and are taken to the Santa Barbara Airport to meet airline captains, air traffic controllers, flight attendants, and other aviation-industry personnel. “In the morning, we teach them to fly spiritually, in their soul,” Houston said. “And in the afternoon, we teach them how to fly literally.” The nonprofit is a group effort. A Different Point of View has partnerships with the Santa Barbara County Probation Department, Peoples’ Self Help Housing, and the Above All Aviation flight school at the Santa Barbara airport, among other organizations. They also have support from the International Organization of Women Pilots. So why flying? “Having been a runaway, a thief, a Hollywood photographer, and an actor, flying an airplane has been the most powerful experience I’ve ever had,” said Houston. “Teaching someone how to fly changes their life because it literally takes you above the planet, gives you a different point of view. They learn that they must become captains of their own lives, that where they go, climb, turn, descent, how far they go is all up to them.”

Beginnings Pit Bull Puppy Ambassador Program


he dog-loving community is facing a crisis; pit bulls of all ages are being placed in shelter in droves thanks to overpopulation and irresponsible owners, and finding new homes is difficult at best for such a maligned breed. “Pit bulls face an uphill battle just because of all the fears and myths about the breed,” said Jill Anderson, cofounder of the pit bull rescue Shadow’s Fund. “For a lot of people, seeing an adult pit bull, especially one who has had no training and is pulling on leash or jumping, just furthers the perception of the breed.” Dismayed by the number of young dogs destined to see the inside of a shelter before their first birthday, Shadow’s Fund and a collection of Santa Barbara County–based shelters and rescues have teamed up to create the Bright Beginnings: Pit Bull Puppy Ambassador program, which is dedicated to fostering, training, and rehoming pit bull puppies and changing the negative connotations surrounding the breed. “When [folks] see a young pit bull who’s walking nicely on leash, they’re well-trained, they’ve got excellent social skills, that starts to open people’s minds,” said Anderson. Anderson’s goal is to send a wave of well-trained, well-behaved young pit bulls into the community to act as ambassadors for the breed and show the public that there is much more to these dogs than meets the eye.

“Unfortunately, pit bulls right now are the dog of choice for the wrong owners,” continued Anderson. “So you’ve got people who want them to have a macho status symbol, you’ve got folks who want them to fight, you’ve got lots of people raising and owning these dogs irresponsibly. So sometimes the public only sees the worst of the breed.” “We’ve been kind of swimming upstream, trying to find homes for these dogs once they’re in the shelters,” Anderson said. “We realized it was kind of ridiculous to try to respond and react to the crisis once it hits crisis level, rather than try to avert it to begin with. So we started kicking around this idea to pick up as many of these litters of puppies as we could get our hands on and get them into appropriate foster homes, get them spayed and neutered so they’re not reproducing later, get them trained and socialized so we can make sure they’re not entering the shelter, and put them in responsible homes.” Launched in February of this year, Bright Beginnings has fostered 50 puppies so far and expects twice that many to have passed through the program by the end of the year. The organization places young pit bulls in foster homes for a training period of at least 30 days, during which the puppies are socialized, given medical treatment, taught basic commands, and how to interact with people, other animals, and children. Thanks to the dedicated foster owners and the weekly training program at the Shadow Fund’s ranch, Anderson said, the puppies will learn “all the things a dog needs early in life to be a well-balanced, wellsocialized dog.” After the foster period is over, the puppies are ready to go to their new adoptive homes as model citizens of the canine community. For people looking to get involved with this remarkable organization, Bright Beginnings is looking for volunteers, foster families, and people to adopt a puppy. For foster owners, training, food, and medical care for puppies is provided and, Anderson said, what is most necessary is “time, energy, and willingness, and a safe and secure home and yard.” You can visit the Bright Beginnings page at program to see pictures of the young pit bulls and follow the classes as they enter and graduate from the program. Those looking to adopt a dog, remember to keep an open mind about these misunderstood animals and get to know one in a good environment before condemning the breed based on its reputation.

Clint Ewing Rides Again

Daredevil Who Survived Scary Stunt Returns to the Road lint Ewing nearly died last summer when his attempt to set a world record for riding through a tunnel of fire went awry, leaving him with severely burned hands and wondering what would become of his career. But this past May, after three surgeries and lots of soul-searching, Ewing hit the road again, taking his stunt motorcycle-riding act to more than 25 events across the country, from Missouri and Chicago to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida, and beyond. “Just as soon as I thought I was at the end of my career and having to get a normal job, it spun around again, against the odds,” said Ewing, who was recuperating at home in Santa Barbara when he conceived of this more intimate style of a demo tour, most occurring outside motorcycle shops, as a way to keep his sponsors stoked. “I’m having one of the best years of my life, event-wise.” While his injury came during a daredevilish ride through a 350-foot-long fireball at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota, such world-record–minded feats are only occasional episodes in Ewing’s otherwise rather safe career in freestyle street bike riding, the comparably slow-paced but mind-bending art of extended wheelies, saddle standing, and crazy spinning moves. He first fell in love with dirt bikes growing up near Cold Spring School in Montecito but got into the freestyle stuff after buying his first street bike in college. Eventually, sponsors wanted to bring him to events, and a career ensued. The August 2013 crash — which made national news — threatened all of that, forcing Ewing to both mend his body and mind. Fighting off the frustration he felt while dropping things through his new hands in the grocery store, Ewing eventually got back on a mountain bike and then slowly relearned the motions on his motorcycle. He’d often think back to the day of the accident, when an incoming storm made the conditions less than ideal, causing many around him to advise against

carrying on with the stunt. It’s made him look at how he lives his entire life. “If I’m willing to go do that and not second-guess it, I need to slow down a bit,” he concluded. “I don’t need to prove anything to myself anymore.” There will be no such stunts on this tour, which concludes August 8, when his best friend gets MOTORCYLE MAN: Clint Ewing (pictured), married in Santa who suffered severe burns last year during Barbara. And it’s a dangerous stunt, is back on tour through only a matter of August 8. time before Ewing puts down all of his tricks for good. “Some guys think this motorcycle thing is the end-all, be-all, but I’ve never thought that way,” he said. “It’s fun, but it doesn’t make you a better person. I don’t ever want to be that person just known as the ‘guy who rides motorcycles.’ I want, for my friends and my family and myself, to be more than that.” — Matt Kettmann See august 7, 2014

e grow macadamia nuts. Every day I look out onto an orchard of more than 100 thriving trees whose dangling tasseled blossoms fill the air with pungent fragrance and yield the sweetest and most satisfying of nuts, rich in the good kind of fat. But there’s a lot of work to do before the eating. After the nuts are harvested, they must be husked, dried, culled, and cracked, and that cracking step is a tough one because macadamias are gifted with the hardest of all nutshells. We often find bits of shells cracked open by neighborhood animals during their late-night parties, but those creatures must have some pretty impressive teeth and technique. I read somewhere that it takes 300 pounds per square inch of pressure to crack a macadamia shell. Enter the cracker. What I like most about the one we use is its color. Well, let me backtrack: What I like most about the one we use is that it usually works. But even when broken, as it has been for several months, its color is pretty, an oddly pleasing shade of green on a steel frame that could very well have been left dreary. I also like the polkadot holes in the cylinder through which the nuts tumble out, and I like the industrious noise of it, when it’s running, and its Rube Goldberg personality. It seems more contraption than machine. But it’s been broken and idle, and I’ve watched wistfully as burlap sacks filled with nuts in shells are hauled off to a distributor, and I yearn for our own little share of the goods, whole round edibles in perfect eightounce portions, or the wonderful broken morsels my mother-in-law calls “cookie bits.” Enter the fixer. It’s my husband, Monte, who reads directions and figures things out. The cracker comes with a xeroxed sheet of

instructions for both operation and repair that look to have been hand-typed by a Mr. Shaw, the fellow who designed it. It talks about removal of bearings and end plates, replacing inserts in flanges, and setting a locking collar in the direction of rotation of the shaft. There are blades and taper pins and even a warning about distorting the cover plate “in a manner that could render the cracker worthless.” It isn’t only that I dropped physics and don’t really understand how things work other than in a magical way (and I’m not proud of this) — it’s also that I am impatient and not inherently interested. I am cracked and distracted, and light gets in but never a clear, sharp beam. I look at these instruction sheets and feel overwhelmed and bored. Suddenly I notice a hummingbird darting around the honeysuckle. I remember something else I meant to be doing. I become the hummingbird but not as efficient. But Monte got that cracker going: eight blades, eight removals, eight replacements with small tools and patient hands. And it reminds me of something we’ve been talking about lately, which is the importance of slowing down, paying attention, and tending with care and grace to even the mundane chores and tiny rituals of life … things like washing the dishes, making the bed, maintaining the cracker. It’s what the Buddhist teacher Thích Nhâ´t Hanh refers to as mind˙ my heart and mind,” fulness.“I plant with all he has said.“I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness … all is sacred.” I guess Monte is Zen master in our household. As for me, I aspire. And whenever they are ready, I will munch on macadamias with mindfulness and pleasure.

Once Upon a Time Cinder by Marissa Meyer


arissa Meyer’s Cinder takes a startling new spin on the age-old tale of Cinderella: Here, the classic story is reimagined in a grimy science-fiction version of Beijing, set in the distant future and peopled with a rich cast of cyborgs, androids, and, of course, royalty. Drawing from both the well-known 17th-century version of the fairy tale by French writer Charles Perrault and the far older Chinese Cinderella story (written in about 856-860 CE), Meyer’s Cinder is both familiar and unique. It paints the story of a young cyborg girl living in a society that does not recognize her as fully human. It tells of her struggles to escape from her stepfamily and discover the truth about her past and what the secrets of her DNA could mean for a plague-torn city desperate for an antidote to a mysterious disease, all while working through her feelings for the young emperor who doesn’t even know that she’s a cyborg. Cinder’s story is only the beginning of a larger saga of the Lunar Chronicles, which continues in Scarlet, a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, and Cress, based on Rapunzel. A prequel to the series, Fairest, is expected later this year, tiding fans over until the release of the muchanticipated nal book, Winter, a rendering of Snow White. Although each book brings a new fairy-tale heroine to the forefront, their stories all weave together over the course of the series to create a thrilling tale of friendship, romance, and personal and political turmoil as the protagonists prepare to face the wicked queen of Luna in a battle for — Savannah Stelzer the throne.

t is one of the most familiar stories in the human canon: Adam and Eve, the Garden of Eden, the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the forbidden fruit, and the serpent. We know the story, but how many of us have really thought about what it means? I’ve always admired the focus and rigor of scholars who take a subject and examine it exhaustively, rst from one perspective, then another, turning it like a prism in sunlight. This is what Arthur George and his wife, Elena George, have done with The Mythology of Eden. Examining the Eden tale in minute detail — and with numerous footnotes — the Georges employ their combined and considerable knowledge of mythology, archaeology, history, psychology, and religion to parse new meanings from a story that is fundamental in the Christian world. Is it possible that God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden as much to allow them to act independently as to punish them? Perhaps, since God made garments to clothe them and rendered Eve fertile so humans could procreate and go on to create civilization. And did original sin begin with Adam or Eve or come later, when Cain killed Abel? Intriguing questions. The Mythology of Eden is a challenging read to be sure, the sort of book one searches for because one needs source material for a college or university assignment or because one has a professional interest in the subject. I found this to be a dense read, chock-full of references to Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung, Milton’s Paradise Lost, and lengthy expositions about human archetypes that I haven’t encountered since my student days. I had to reread entire paragraphs. Not that I oppose being stretched and challenged, bumping up against an idea I’ve never considered before, like what the Eden story meant for women, doesn’t bother me at all. As the Georges see it, the Eden story devalued women, casting the notion of the goddess on the scrap heap and subjecting Earthly women to rule by men. That idea alone left me with plenty to think about. — Brian Tanguay

Gaucho’s Athletic Director Heads North After Six Years at UCSB, Mark Massari Makes the Leap to Oregon State


by John Zant

ike the middle-class families of America, the so-called mid-majors of college athletics are struggling to keep up. There are various ways to illustrate the gap between the revenue-soaked programs at the top (the BCS football schools that are enriched by television dollars and nationwide marketing) and those that have had to adopt drought tolerance. Consider the median athletic spending per athlete, as reported by the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics for 2012. In the Southeastern Conference, the figure was $163,931; in the Pac-12 Conference, $102,121. At non-football Division I schools, it was $39,201. According to UCSB’s most recently reported figures, its athletic budget amounts to $35,000 per athlete. “The gap between us and the big boys is getting wider and wider,” said Gary Cunningham, UCSB’s interim director of athletics. “It’s a function of facilities and dollars. We’re dealing with the same old problem: finances, finances, finances.” Despite that reality, it was with considerable reluctance that Mark Massari decided to make the leap to the richer side of the gap. The director of Gaucho athletics for the past six years, Massari has departed to become the deputy director of athletics at Oregon State (OSU). He had been a rising star in OSU’s athletic department when UCSB recruited him in 2008. He succeeded Cunningham, who had retired after 13 years of steady-as-she-goes administration, and he brought a new energy to the campus. “I could tell why I was able to get the job … the things I could bring to the table from an outreach standpoint, fundraising, marketing things,” Massari said, “a little bit of [he

clapped his hands for emphasis] ‘Let’s go somewhere; let’s do a couple things.’ ” Oregon State’s athletic budget of more than $60 million is four times that of UCSB. Furthermore, 90 percent of the Beavers’ support comes from outside sources (the Pac-12, TV revenues, football play-offs, ticket sales, sponsors, and donors), while 80 percent of the Gauchos’ support comes from the campus (student fees and institutional funds). “The economics are a lot different, but at the core level, where you have dedicated, driven coaches and athletes, [UCSB] can maintain a high level,” Massari said. “It’s never going to be a level playing field. The facilities are better at certain schools. You have to choose the sports where you want to be bold, rather than invest across-the-board.” Massari highlighted Gaucho men’s soccer, which has led the nation in attendance for seven years; he brought the 2010 College Cup to UCSB. He increased the support for baseball after bringing in Coach Andrew Checketts. Men’s basketball has stayed near the top of the Big West Conference, but the women’s program has been struggling relative to its years of domination under former coach Mark French. In replacing another legendary coach, Kathy Gregory of women’s volleyball, Massari found Nicole Lantagne Welch, who led the Gauchos to a conference championship in her first year. Much of Massari’s impact has been decorative. Large banners adorn athletic buildings displaying his slogan “Dare to be Great.” He honored past Gaucho greats by starting the “Legends of the ’Dome” program. He recognized the school’s athletic history by reaching out to former Gaucho football players. The learning center in the Intercollegiate Athlet-

ics (ICA) building is dedicated to Jim Barber, a veteran of UCSB’s 1965 Camellia Bowl team. Members of that team were primary donors to the construction of the Curtice Gate at the entrance to Harder Stadium, in memory of football coach “Cactus Jack” Curtice. “One of the things I’m most proud about is how certain groups of alums feel about the place,” Massari said. “Some of it is financial, but a lot of it is emotional support.” French, who was on the search committee that brought Massari to UCSB, said the outgoing athletic director “did a good job at what we thought he’d do — marketing, promotions, videos.” Massari was less successful at nurturing camaraderie within the athletic department, which French attributed to “his inexperience in managing people hands-on.” Cunningham agreed to hold down the fort while a new search committee, chaired by former vice chancellor Gene Lucas, starts assessing candidates to replace Massari. “I expect it will take three to four months,” Cunningham said. “My goal is to keep the program where it is. It’s still an excellent program, one of the best in the Big West, if not the best. I’ll leave long-range strategies up to the next athletics director.” Chancellor Henry Yang will make the final call on the next leader of Gaucho athletics, based on the committee’s recommendations. Yang is very trustful of Cunningham, who also serves on the committee. The chancellor admired the John Wooden legacy that Cunningham, who spent years as the UCLA legend’s top assistant, brought to Santa Barbara. Massari did things differently, but he recognized Cunningham’s legacy. “This place has the morals of Gary in it,” Massari said. “He’s a stand-up person, straitlaced, is always going to do things the right way. I inherited a department that has that in its DNA. It’s going to do the right things academically and athletically.”

Vegetable Strudel: Roasted butternut squash, asparagus, kidney beans, spinach, and peppers are wrapped in an olive-oiled pastry and set in a sauce of tomato juice, butter, and Dijon mustard, with broccolini and risotto on the side. The flavors are complex, with the risotto colored by a splash of carrot juice, adding a touch of sweetness to this savory dish. The seasonal vegetables, light for summer, balance out the heavy pastry.




odney’s Grill is one of Santa Barbara’s hidden gems, tucked away in a corner of the Fess Parker DoubleTree Resort on East Cabrillo Boulevard. Despite its quality ingredients and world-class chefs (hand-picked by Hilton, which owns the hotel), Santa Barbara residents are too quick to write off the restaurant as only for the overnight guests. And vegetarians are hasty to make a second mistake when they dismiss this steakhouse as for meat eaters only. Executive Chef Kirk DeLong, Sous Chef Luis Del Mercado, and General Manager Matthew La Vine insist that Rodney’s Grill does not shy away from vegetarian cuisine. “I used to be vegetarian when I was in culinary school,” said DeLong. “I did it for the true benefit of just [diversifying] my career.” The move paid off. Here are just three deliciously flavored and expertly crafted vegetarian dishes now on the menu at Rodney’s Grill.

Israeli Couscous: Saffron, cherry tomatoes, chives, garlic, mushrooms, and lemon lend flavor to this vibrant dish. This citrus version of a traditional North African staple is one way to lighten a midsummer meal. Red Quinoa and French Lentils: This vegan dish combines purple fingerling potatoes, butternut squash, parsnips, Swiss chard, and tomato broth with red quinoa and French lentils, adding up to a meal high in protein and even higher in flavor. A touch of aromatic orange peels makes this dish delight more than just the taste buds. With the restaurant’s experienced chefs and abundant resources, vegetarians are sure to be in good hands. “A lot of people associate vegetarians with people who don’t appreciate food,” DeLong said. “It’s quite the opposite actually. Most vegetarians really care about what they’re putting in their bodies.” — Joanne Howard

EMAIL: ARTS@INDEPENDENT.COM OH, HI: Changing Tides presents the third annual Lissie & Friends concert at the Libbey Bowl on Saturday, August 9.




Broadway in SANTA



f you’ve so much as glanced at a lifestyle magazine in the past six months, you know that our neighbors to the south are having a serious moment in the sun. Thanks to a laid-back vibe, an artistically liberal community, and an insurmountable dose of natural beauty, Ojai has become the go-to destination for L.A. and S.F. bohems looking to vacay on a budget. Turns out, it’s also becoming quite the hot spot for musicians looking to get away from it all (without really going all that far away). In recent years, members of Wilco, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister have all taken up residence in Ojai, with more sure to follow suit. Lucky for us ers, this renaissance comes with a whole other set of perks, including sweet restaurants, killer shopping, and intimate musical experiences just an arm’s reach away. On most weekends, you can dip into the Deer Lodge or sit by the pool at the Ojai Rancho Inn and take in a show so small, so good, and so (usually) free that you’ll never want to step inside an S.B. nightclub again. This weekend, one of Ojai’s resident musical children is making extra good on the whole community-revival thing. On Saturday, August 9, songstress Lissie takes to the stage at the Libbey Bowl for a benefit concert to support her fellow Ojai-ers at Changing Tides Orphanage. The cause is one that sits deep with the songstress, who’s headlined a similar show for the organization for the last two years. But it’s also a pairing that’s indicative of Ojai’s current state of mind. Lissie met Taffy Lowen and Vance Simms shortly after moving to Ojai from L.A. in 2009. Simms, along with a

group of Ojai friends, had begun making monthly trips to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, building houses and helping young, displaced children get an education. Shortly thereafter, he founded Changing Tides and came to Lowen to help sell a book of images about the project. When Lissie heard about what her neighbors were doing, she immediately wanted to take part “As a musician, you can get people to come together, and you can have this captive audience, so why not use that opportunity to inform them about something you believe in?” she explained back in 2012. For the unacquainted, Lissie’s music is easily categorizable as the heartfelt singer/ songwriter type, but it also goes a long way beyond the clichéd trappings of the label. Her voice is a full-bodied force to be reckoned with, powerful enough to belt the living daylights out of some Motown soul but subtle enough to pull off sweet, heartstring-tugging whispers. Her leanings, while sometimes sunny and California folk-inspired, tend toward the daring. In 2010, her big, Southern-rock-riffy take on Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” took the song from catchy to a full-on, chest-rattling assault. This year, she tackled Danzig’s “Mother” and proved herself a prime candidate for the role of new-school Janis Joplin. Add to that a blonde surfer’s mane and an immediately lovable girl-next-door personality, and you’ve kind of got the gist. Come Saturday, Lissie will be joined onstage by friends Todd Hannigan, Sleeping Chief, Emy Reynolds, and Dasha. The concert starts at 6:30 p.m., and all proceeds benefit Changing Tides Orphanage. To purchase tickets, call 207-6817 or visit libbey — Aly Comingore



Magnificent malcontent Morrissey returns with his mariachi- and flamenco-tinged 10th solo album, World Peace Is None of Your Business. He gets down to brass tacks on the title track with sardonic jabs at the oligarchies and corporatocracies running our planet: “World peace is none of your business / So would you kindly keep your nose out / The rich must profit and get richer / And the poor must stay poor,” he croons, “Oh, you poor little fool — oh, you fool / Each time you vote you support the process.” Next, “Neal Cassady Drops Dead” gives the Mozzer ample space to pay homage to the antihero avatar immortalized in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Here, he further embellishes the myth, philosophically musing: “Neal Cassady drops dead / And Allen Ginsberg’s howl becomes a growl / Victim or life’s adventurer / Which of the two are you?” On “I’m Not a Man” and “Earth Is the Loneliest Planet” Moz’s (perhaps justifiable) misanthropy is readily apparent. Later, on the tongue-in-cheek “Kick the Bride Down the Aisle,” the singer vents his sarcastic spleen: “She just wants a slave / To break his back in pursuit of a living wage / So that she can laze and graze / For the rest of her days.” “Istanbul” and “Mountjoy” are the standout tracks, the latter of which references the infamous Irish prison: “Brendan Behan’s laughter rings / For what he had or hadn’t done / For he knew then as I know now / That for each and every one of us / We all lose / Rich or poor, we all lose / Rich or poor, they all lose.” Though the album is bombastically overproduced, the lyrics are pure gold, proving that at 55, Mr. Steven Patrick Morrissey remains an unrepentant bitter romantic. — Sean Mageean


Helping Hand STOMP


What do King Arthur, Roxie Hart, and Nathan Detroit have in common? Besides being classic Broadway musical roles, these are all characters that will grace the big stage at the Granada as part of Theater League’s Broadway in Santa Barbara series. Based in Kansas City, this intrepid nonprofit production company is dedicated to the proposition that every American deserves more jazz hands, more tinsel, and especially more rousing big numbers in his or her life. As a result, they’ve spared no expenses in bringing professional touring companies of great Broadway shows to selected cities. If you have thrilled to West Side Story, Dreamgirls, Spamalot, or Young Frankenstein at the Granada, then you’ve seen a Theater League show. Often the casts are made up of rising stars, but in several instances, such as last season’s Hello, Dolly! featuring Sally Struthers, these shows come with the big stars attached. Although the best value will always be season tickets (which are already on sale), starting August 18, those wanting to concentrate their resources on the sleaze of Chicago (Apr. 7-8, 2015), the sassiness of Guys and Dolls (Feb. 17-18, 2015), or the grandeur of Camelot (Jan. 20-21, 2015) will have their chance because that’s when single tickets for all this season’s shows go on sale. Theater League always throws in one show that’s not part of the season package, and it’s usually something wild. Last season, this one-off special was the Green Day musical American Idiot, and this year it’s another can’tmiss sensation: STOMP. No date has been set for that one-night-only performance, but the good news is that if you subscribe to the whole season, you can swap your tickets for one of those three shows for the best seats in the house for STOMP. To purchase tickets to any of Theater League’s performances, call 899-2222 or visit — Charles Donelan

BACK TO THE FUTURE: Tim Wood’s “Kodama” (2014) is just one of the featured pieces in the Arts Fund’s current and tech-minded group show.

THE CUTTING EDGE Ruckus. At the Arts Fund Gallery. Shows through August 16. Reviewed by Nathan Vonk


erhaps the most common way we experience how technology transforms art is in music. Depending on your age, you might remember the first time you heard a song by Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, or Nine Inch Nails that forever changed what music could be. As with music, when we encounter this kind of quantum leap in the realm of visual art, it is at first disorienting. But as soon as we get over the initial shock, it can also produce an incredible sense of wonder. The collection of work on view through August 16 at the Arts Fund Gallery is full of these kinds of awe-inducing moments, where technology is put to creative use to make something thoroughly unfamiliar. As you enter the gallery space, you immediately encounter “The Font,” an imposing metal cauldron filled with water of ever-changing colors. Connected to this is a microphone that transmits to a speaker inside “The Font,” creating a complex series of Faraday waves on the surface of the water that responds to the pitch of your voice. This display is then projected onto the walls above. The piece is collaboration by artists Carlos Padilla, Alan Macy, Jonathan Smith, and Ethan Turpin, who have produced something that is unique and remarkably captivating. Macy’s solo effort for this show, “Sensory Perception Chair – Breathing,” comes in the form of a plush red chair adorned with similarly colored wings. When the chair is occupied, it slowly syncs with the breathing patterns of the sitter, and within moments the wings begin to move back and forth in rhythm. There are no obvious sensors in the chair to explain how this interaction takes place, amplifying the sense of mystery that such an object creates. However, the experience of sitting in the chair itself is so soothing that it is easy to want to linger there. On the opposite side of the gallery, Turpin uses antiquated video equipment from the 1980s and ’90s to produce “Video Feedback Temperatures,” part of his Video Feedbackteria series. This iteration takes a video of the viewer and their surroundings to produce colorful abstract patterns that slowly evolve into biomorphic shapes. As with the rest of this series, the astonishment here comes from just how organically this feedback seems to behave. It is absolutely mesmerizing. The final two exhibitors for this show come from UCSB’s Media Arts and Technology graduate program, one of this country’s single greatest centers for this kind of avant-garde art. Tim Wood’s “Kodama” uses a repurposed Xbox video sensor to detect the viewer’s body movement and translates that motion into a digitally rendered tree on the screen above. Wood is also a dancer, and this piece is a beautiful exploration of the intersection of the physical and the virtual. Marco Pinter has created what is probably the most cerebral piece in the show, “Object Permanence : Non-Dual.” Over the course of four-and-a-half minutes, three digital screens depict a variety of shapes that move from one screen to the next, at times seeming to interact with the sculpted elements installed in the spaces around the screens. The interaction confuses our understanding of how the real world affects the virtual world, and vice versa. From an artistic standpoint, it can be a challenge to discuss this kind of work, which seemingly requires an entirely new vocabulary. But there is certainly a distinct kind of beauty in the way this work asks us to redefine what art can be. For the art lover who gets excited by the idea of exploring the cutting edge, this ■ show will not disappoint. august 7, 2014

august 7, 2014


apping a renaissance year and honoring the 80th birthday of vocal teacher Marilyn Horne, the Music Academy of the West (MAW) chose to stage for its 2014 opera production one of the most perfect musical theater pieces of all time and certainly one of the most popular. Georges Bizet’s brilliant themes, coupled with his psychologically masterful orchestrations, are as bewitching as the allure of the title character, Carmen. These melodies have a way of getting into your soul and lodging in the memory for hours, days afterward. But patrons were game for beguilement on this sold-out opening night. With the opera scheduled during Old Spanish Days, director David Paul and his designers alighted on a novel idea for the setting: Santa Barbara and its mountains, circa 1850, instead of Seville. After all, our own history amalgamates westward migrants searching for freedom, Mexican culture with its cherished regard for bullfighting, and streams of Romani peoples displaced from Europe. The opening curtain drew approving murmurs and instant applause for an awesome spectacle: rocky heights — apparently modeled from La Cumbre Peak and its companions — set against a luminous sky over an adobe and red-tiled village. But more important was the aural backdrop, delivered with finesse by members of the Academy Festival Orchestra under the direction of conductor James Gaffigan. Bizet’s extensive emotional range was rendered vivid and vital throughout, especially during the ponderous trombone-laden “Fate” theme, the whimsical delicacy of “Avec la garde montante,” and the heartbreaking tenderness of the flute-and-harp “Prelude to Act III.” Carmen, of course, is nothing without a strong title character, and Baltimore native Briana Hunter, new to the Music Academy this year, combined her sultry mezzo with keen acting skills to flesh out (so to speak) the seductive “untamed bird” of Seville. One of the greatest arias, “Seguidilla près des remparts de Séville,” was not only sung beautifully but also cheekily choreographed with the brazen gypsy (who’d been tied up after a cat fight) freeing her hands, toying whip-like with the strap, and finally pushing the guard into the captive’s chair at the last note. There hung the whole story in miniature. The role of Don José was magnificently sung by tenor Brett Payne. The opera is essentially a morality tale of the temptation and fall of this soldier, and Payne drew a convincing arc of development from boyish (but vulnerable) moralism to murderous torment. Even the pure love of Don José’s fiancée, Micaëla, sung by Alison King, is powerless to save him. An especially soul-stirring moment occurs when Micaëla tracks her fugitive-betrothed to an outlaw hideout. Wandering alone in the dark, she broods on her predicament and prays for courage (“C’est les contrebandiers le refuge ordinaire”). King’s power in this aria was resplendent. The chorus of Carmen, as with previous MAW summer operas, included Santa Barbara community singers. This year also involved the State Street Ballet for a village dance at the opening of Act II — a sequence, amid twilight sky and hanging lanterns, as beguiling as any. ■

n Sunday afternoon, an enthusiastic audience filled Center Stage Theater to capacity for the single public performance of The Odyssey Project, Michael Morgan’s ambitious program for healing the identities of young men who are incarcerated. Each summer, Morgan, a professor in UCSB’s Theater Department, pairs eight juvenile offenders from the Los Prietos Boys Camp with eight UCSB students for a journey of discovery through the experience of ancient literature and the medium of theatrical performance. The class,“Theater : The People’s Voice,” meets four times a week for six weeks in sessions that each last almost four hours. During those sessions, the men from Los Prietos learn the story of Homer’s Odyssey, compare its hero’s struggles to their own lives, and then combine the two in an original, fully produced show with lighting, costumes, back projections, masks, and music. It’s a rare and bold kind of experiment, premised on the observation that, like Odysseus, these boys will need skills, courage, and enormous persistence to make it home from the dangerous world into which they have wandered. Eventually, another, even larger audience will get to enjoy Sunday’s performance, as the show was filmed by a professional documentary crew, complete with crane and Steadicam. The show they captured was varied, upbeat, and revealing. Through a variety of techniques, including recitation from the Odyssey, enactments of its scenes, dance, shared personal stories, raps, and affirmations, the cast created a hybrid virtual world that contained both the grandeur and exoticism of the ancient Mediterranean and the gritty, uncompromising reality of life at risk in contemporary Southern California. With just a handful of props, T-shirts for costumes, and some very clever masks, these actors transformed the space into one of community, beauty, and emotional truth. Following the program’s principle that to live as a hero means knowing that your voice in the world has power, each performer, whether from UCSB or Los Prietos, bore witness to the issues that concern them. For example, during one sequence that resembled a friendly version of a dance-off, each performer prefaced his or her moves with a simple statement of intention, e. g.,“I dance for all those who struggle with poverty,” or “I dance for the ones who have fallen.” Taken alongside the elegantly staged scenes of the Greek epic, these moments of personal witness and social truth expanded to encompass the entire community. Congratulations to the men and women of The Odyssey Project for taking us someplace hopeful and new and for helping everyone involved feel a ■ lot closer to home.

A MIGHTY WIN: Frontman Win Butler was just one of many onstage during Arcade Fire’s commanding, lengthy, confetti-filled set at the Santa Barbara Bowl.


Arcade Fire. At the Santa Barbara Bowl, Monday, August 4. Reviewed by Aly Comingore


fter a week’s worth of confetti eggs, skirt twirling, and margarita machines, I half expected Monday night’s Arcade Fire audience to show up dragging their feet. Apparently I was only half right. As the sun crested and the band took the stage at the Santa Barbara Bowl, frontman Win Butler made quick work of revving up his fans.“Most people stand up at our shows,” he snickered to those in their seats,“but that’s fine — stay sitting. It looks comfortable.” From there it was all systems go. Outfitted with a small army of auxiliary percussionists, string players, and bobblehead-brandishing dancers, the band launched into “Here Comes the Night Time” and ushered in close to two hours of swelling, scream-sing-along celebration. For those who’ve followed Arcade Fire through their nearly flawless 13-year, four-album run, the band is a kind of rock ’n’ roll beacon of hope. Play “Wake Up” to most anyone older than 18, and you’re sure to spark a tearful memory or five. Talk to someone who saw the band during one of their famously highenergy early tours, and you’re all but guaranteed to get an earful. Why? Because the Arcade Fire magic is a mythical, many-armed beast. The band’s songs are big, at times over-orchestrated affairs, and when they’re brought to life in front of a crowd, they build and build and build until they almost topple over. As far as stage presence goes, husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne are unlikely foils; his commanding speak-sing plays off her eerily delicate lilt in a way that’s both odd and affecting. And when you combine all this with dizzying lighting rigs, a couple hundred mirrors, and a few cannons full of confetti, you’re basically guaranteed a good time. Santa Barbara’s entry into the Reflektor Tour diary featured a few kind-ofokay covers (Dead Kennedys’ “California Über Alles” and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ “California”), as well as a weighted helping of tracks off of last year’s Reflektor, but the evening’s real highlights came with the classics. Midway through, Butler made the wistfulness of “The Suburbs” feel downright revelatory, and when it ran into the one-two punch of “Ready to Start” and “Ocean of Noise,” there wasn’t a seated body in the house. Yes, there were some misses, and no, I don’t think the additional bongo players really added all that much, but when “Rebellion (Lies)” hit halfway through the encore, it did really feel like the best party the Bowl has hosted all season. ■ Leave it to Arcade Fire to make Monday night feel like a weekend.

FROM A LAND DOWN UNDER: Australian groovers Panama head to Santa Barbara along with synth-pop acts Mango Mango and Mexico City Blondes on Sunday, August 10.



by Aly Comingore

WELCOME TO PANAMA: With the dog days of summer fast approaching, it seems like everyone’s trying to squeeze the last few drops out of vacation season. If you’re like me and lurking around without an island to get away to, don’t worry: There’s still hope. Namely, this weekend’s Panama show at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club. The geographically confused trio from Australia hits the West Coast this week as part of their first-ever U.S. tour in support of their brand-new EP, Always. Like their Down Under dwelling buddies Jagwar Ma and Chet Faker, Panama makes the kind of swirly, propulsive piano music that perfectly soundtracks those hot summer nights. On Always, the guys offer up a baritone-laden collection of singles and remixes punctuated with spacey guitars, ’80s-indebted synths, and even a few well-placed saxophone runs. But don’t confuse Panama with the big, bombastic dance pop of acts like M — these guys dabble in the computerized but have their feet planted firmly in the world of live musicianship. And if the online videos are to be believed, they’re more than capable of injecting a room with some seriously visceral energy. We the Beat presents Panama at SOhO ( State St.) on Sunday, August 10, at 9 p.m. with Santa Barbara’s own Mango Mango and Mexico City Blondes. The show is 18+. For tickets and info, call 962-7776 or visit /panama.

POOL PARTY: Thanks to last week’s unseasonable and oh-so-welcome rainstorm, the fine folks of Folk Steady have moved their monthly poolside soirée to this Sunday, August 10, at the Ojai Rancho Inn. For those who have yet to frequent Vaughn Montgomery’s curated afternoon of music, mark your calendars. This weekend’s lineup features the sounds of Aaron Embry, Gabriel Slavitt, Roger Keiaho, Becca Fuchs, Ryan Fabel, and Montgomery’s own little big here. The jams are mostly acoustic, wonderfully soothing, and always family friendly. And as for the atmosphere, it’s about as laid-back and adorably hippie-dippie as they come. Pack the kids, some swimsuits, and a picnic, and prepare yourself for the best little free backyard jam on the South Coast. The party stretches from noon to dusk around the pool at the Ojai Rancho Inn ( Ojai Valley Trail, Ojai). For info, call 646-1434.

KEEP ’EM COMING: We’re still collecting submissions for this year’s Santa Barbara Bands Issue, which hits stands on Thursday, October 9. If you’re making music in or around the Santa Barbara area, send us your music, websites, and bios ■ for a chance to be featured. Email for info.

EAT YOUR VEGGIES: Also this week, on Monday, August 11, Inglewood rapper Casey Veggies makes his S.B. debut at Velvet Jones. The young emcee has been making waves since he left the Odd Future pack in 2007. In solo mode, Veggies has established himself as something of a firecracker in hip-hop world, thanks to an even but furious flow and an ear for whip-like beats. Don’t trust us? Well, he’s got industry backing, too, including features from the likes of Mac Miller (“Can I Live”) and OFWGKTA figurehead Tyler the Creator (“DTA”). Most recently, Veggies signed to Epic Records imprint VIC, on which he’ll release his first major-label album in the coming months. In other words, catch Casey now. Chances are he’ll be playing rooms twice this size by year’s end. The show starts at 8 p.m. Call 965-8676 or visit for tickets.

AIN’T NO DRAG Get on Up. Chadwick Boseman, Dan Aykroyd, and Viola Davis star in a film written by Jez and John-Henry Butterworth and directed by Tate Taylor. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino


ou could easily build the case that this film belongs to Chadwick Boseman. The actor who embodied the clear-eyed nobility of Jackie Robinson in  completely transforms himself from within for this role, which requires not just a dancer’s grace and an egotist’s pomp, but an almost obscene ambitiousness burning at the edges. It’s fair to say Boseman manages all that and more. His song performances are gorgeous — from the patented toe step slide to the funky chug of his carriage. He’s all about the finger pops and splits. If it was just a matter of trance-channeling Brown, who always exemplified sexed-up pride, Boseman would deserve high accolades for this show. But such an exclusive focus leaves out half of what really makes this movie compelling: its intricately rewarding structure. It begins with a hazy bummer — Brown’s druggy 1980s arrest after shooting up a sales meeting, ending in a car chase and imprisonment. But then we spin. The story is told in great interrupted loops that move with a dreamlike logic from Brown’s dirt-poor youth to those pinnacles of self-made fame and wealth. Director Tate Taylor showed no chops like this in his plodding film The Help, but here it all coheres into a thing of beauty. It seems more likely that writers Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, who cowrote the time-hopping script for Edge of Tomorrow, may hold the

GODFATHER OF SOUL: Chadwick Boseman captivates as the living, singing embodiment of James Brown in Get on Up.

key to this marvel. The film moves point counterpoint and builds in a roundabout way, like real memories do, until it ends like an emotional firecracker string. Most musical biopics linger too long on the vices of their protagonists, as if the director’s assignment was to unearth and expose. But really, who cares if Johnny Cash popped diet pills? He sang “Ring of Fire.” This film, which begins with Brown whacked out and ends with him a lost little boy, may not be as dark a portrait as some vultures require, but it’s all the evidence that future folk will need to know that this troubled man was not just Soul Brother ■ Number One; he was a famous flame.

Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista star in a film written by James Gunn and Nicole Perlman and directed by Gunn. Reviewed by D.J. Palladino


irector James Gunn showed great promise with Slither eight years ago, but nothing prepares you for how sure-handed this film feels. Even before images appear, we hear the impeccable strains of cc’s “I’m Not in Love” as a troubled boy sitting in a hospital is about to be drawn into a room where his head-shaved mother is surrounded by teary-eyed relatives.

(121 mins.; R:


This will not be the actual last Philip Seymour Hoffman film released after his sad, premature death; two installments of the Hunger Games movies are yet to be released. People might prefer this as his last stand, though, since the role includes an air of tragic fate that seems stamped on his features in the same way that every Kurt Cobain song seemed to be about guns. Here, Hoffman drinks and smokes in nearly every scene and at every hour of the day. When he meets a CIA agent (Robin Wright) for coffee in swank surroundings, he pulls out a flask and brims his cup. In the movie’s most emblematic mute scene, Hoffman as Günther Bachmann wakes in bed, lights a cigarette, and turns toward the wall. This character takes its place alongside Alec Leamas and other John le Carré men, doomed by the ironies of espionage, by life underground. He’s compromised and hell-bent to try to do right until the system sweeps everybody aside. The film is good, but nowhere near as stylishly good as Corbijn’s earlier films Control or The American. It’s not as intricately fashioned as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is — or for that matter, as was The Spy Who Came in from the Cold 49 years ago. In some ways, it more resembles a good episode of television’s The Wire — a bad guy who heads an evil conspiracy is detected, followed by a melodramatic tussle within enforcing agencies, and then the electronic bug. The rest is the ambiguity of power. Hoffman is a shining star here, elevating the film. But he’s not the only one. All the women in the movie are terrific,

including Wright, Nina Hoss, and Rachel McAdams. Each builds impressively through the movie and deftly swerves from cold heart to tiny acts of kindness. But, of course, it will be Hoffman everybody wants to see more of, a most wanted man who never can surprise us anymore. (DJP)

Anna and Kristoff unite on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister, Elsa, and rescue their kingdom from an endless winter.

Jon (Swingers) Favreau writes, directs, and stars in this story about a chef who loses his restaurant job and starts up a food truck as a way to reunite his estranged family.

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived.

After completing the legendary 12 labors, Hercules helps the King of Thrace defeat his tyrannical enemies. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars as the demigod. In a rare example of great Hollywood writing, the second half becomes a kind of unexpected triumph as all of the mortal limitations are shed by mighty acts of heroic will. (DJP) Fairview (2D)/Fiesta 5 (2D) Lucy (90 mins.; R: strong violence, disturbing


images, sexuality)

Scarlett Johansson stars as a woman who turns on her captors to become a highly evolved killing machine. Luc Besson’s first head film does more than Timothy Leary ever could to make massive drug ingestion seem like a good life plan—and the visuals could hardly have been more spectacular. (DJP) Camino Real/Metro 4 Planes: Fire & Rescue (83 mins.; PG: action and some peril)

A famous air-racing plane learns that his engine is damaged and that he may never race again, so he enters the world of aerial firefighting. Too dumb for grown-ups and too complex for wee ones, this is the kind of movie that almost gets by with beautiful scenery. But mostly it’s a big stall. (DJP)

august 7, 2014





(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Don’t just be smart and articulate, Aries. Dare to be wildly wise and prone to unruly observations. Don’t merely be kind and well-behaved. Explore the mysteries of healing through benevolent mischief. Don’t buy into the all-too-serious trances. Break up the monotony with your unpredictable play and funny curiosity. Don’t simply go along with the stories everyone seems to believe in as if they were the Truth and the Way. Question every assumption; rebel against every foregone conclusion; propose amusing plot twists that send the narratives off on interesting tangents.

(June 21 - July 22): You wouldn’t sip dirty water from a golden chalice. Am I right? Nor would you swig delicious poison from a fine crystal wine glass or 10-year-old vinegar from a queen’s goblet. I’m sure you will agree that you’d much rather drink a magical elixir from a paper cup, or a rejuvenating tonic from a chipped coffee mug, or tasty medicine out of a kids’ plastic soup bowl you bought at the thrift store. Don’t you dare lie to yourself about what’s best for you.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): If you’re planning to hurl a thunderbolt, make sure you are all warmed up and at full strength before you actually unleash it. It would be sad if you flung a half-assed thunderbolt that looked like a few fireflies and sounded like a cooing dove. And please don’t interpret my wise-guy tone here as a sign that I’m just kidding around. No, Libra. This is serious stuff. Life is offering you opportunities to make a major impression, and I want you to be as big and forceful and wild as you need to be. Don’t tamp down your energy out of fear of hurting people’s feelings. Access your inner sky god or sky goddess, and have too much fun expressing your raw power.

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Your ethical code may soon be tested. What will you do if you see a chance to get away with a minor sin or petty crime that no one will ever find out about? What if you are tempted to lie or cheat or deceive in ways that advance your good intentions and only hurt other people a little bit or not at all? I’m not here to tell you what to do but rather to suggest that you be honest with yourself about what’s really at stake. Even if you escape punishment for a lapse, you might nevertheless inflict a wound on your integrity that would taint your relationship with your own creativity. Contemplate the pleasures of purity and righteousness, and use them to enhance your power.



(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): In your dreams you may travel to Stockholm, Sweden, to accept the Nobel Prize or to Hollywood to pick up your Oscar. There’s a decent chance that in your sleepy-time adventures you will finally score with the hot babe who rejected you back in high school or return to the scene of your biggest mistake and do things right this time. I wouldn’t be surprised if in one dream you find yourself riding in a gold chariot during a parade held in your honor. I’m afraid, however, that you will have to settle for less hoopla and glamour in your waking life. You will merely be doing a fantastic job at tasks you usually perform competently. You will be well-appreciated, well-treated, and well-rewarded. That’s not so bad, right?

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): “The thorn arms the roses,” says an old Latin motto. The astrological omens suggest you’ll be wise to muse on that advice in the coming weeks. How should you interpret it? I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions, of course, but here are a few hints. It may be that beauty needs protection, or at least buffering. It’s possible that you can’t simply depend on your sincerity and good intentions but also need to infuse some ferocity into your efforts. In order for soft, fragile, lovely things to do what they do best, they may require the assistance of tough, strong, hearty allies.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Breve orazione penetra is an old Italian idiom. Its literal translation is “short prayers pierce” or “concise prayers penetrate.” You can extrapolate from that to come up with the meaning that “God listens best to brief prayers.” In the coming week, I invite you to apply this idea whenever you ask for anything, whether you are seeking the favors of the Divine Wow or the help of human beings. Know exactly what you want, and express it with no-nonsense succinctness.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Every February, you go through a phase when it’s easier to see the big picture of your life. If you take advantage of this invitation, your experience is like being on a mountaintop and gazing into the vastness. Every August, on the other hand, you are more likely to see the details you have been missing. Transformations that have been too small and subtle to notice may become visible to you. If you capitalize on this opportunity, the experience is like peering through a microscope. Here’s a third variation, Gemini: Around the full moons of both February and August, you may be able to alternately peer into the microscope and simulate the view from a mountaintop. I think that’s about to happen.

Homework: Tell what techniques you’ve discovered about feeding honey to crocodiles. Truthrooster

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Every 12 years, the planet Jupiter spends about a year cruising through the sign of Leo. It’s there with you now and will be with you through early August 2015. What can you expect? EXPANSION! That’s great, right? Yes and no. You might love to have some parts of your life expand; others, not so much. So I suggest you write down your intentions. Say something like this: “I want Jupiter to help me expand my faith in myself, my power to do what I love, and my ability to draw on the resources and allies I need. Meanwhile, I will prune my desires for things I don’t really need and cut back on my involvement with things that don’t inspire me. I don’t want those to expand.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): TV comedian Stephen Colbert confesses that his safeword is “pumpkin patch.” Does that mean he participates in actual BDSM rituals? Is it the code word he utters when he doesn’t want the intensity to rise any further, when he doesn’t want his next boundary crossed? I don’t know. Perhaps he’s simply joking or speaking metaphorically. Whether or not you engage in literal BDSM, Virgo, there’s an aspect of your life right now that has metaphorical resemblances to it. And I suggest that you do the equivalent of using your safeword very soon. Nothing more can be gained from remaining embroiled in your predicament. Even if the ordeal has been interesting or educational up until now, it won’t be for much longer. Escape your bondage.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Lake Superior State University issues a “Unicorn Questing Privilege” to those people who are interested in hunting for unicorns. Are you one of them? I wouldn’t be surprised if you felt an urge like that in the coming weeks. Unusual yearnings will be welling up in you. Exotic fantasies may replace your habitual daydreams. Certain possibilities you have considered to be unthinkable or unattainable may begin to seem feasible. Questions you have been too timid to ask could become crucial for you to entertain. (You can get your Unicorn Questing License here:

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): If you go to an American doctor to be treated for an ailment, odds are that he or she will interrupt you no more than 14 seconds into your description of what’s wrong. But you must not tolerate this kind of disrespect in the coming days, Pisces — not from doctors, not from anyone. You simply must request or, if necessary, demand the receptivity you deserve. If and when it’s given, I urge you to speak your truth in its entirety. Express what has been hidden and suppressed. And this is very important: Take responsibility for your own role in any problems you discuss.

CapaBubbles Sparkling Wine Stopper: When you leave an unfinished bottle of still wine on the counter after a long night, not all is lost — sure, that morning’s wine may have lost a little luster with all the oxygen swirling around, but it’s usually salvageable, at least for sangria. Not so with bottles of bubbly, as all the fun fizz from the night before turns into a sour, flat funk when left open all night. Coming to the rescue is CapaBubbles, an easy, stylish way to save that sparkling wine. Best of all, it’s user‑friendly design, which basically turns the sparkler into a screwcap bottle, makes sense to slap on right after the bottle is opened, so that the slow loss of fizz that starts right upon opening is stunted immediately, ensuring optimal celebratory sipping from beginning to end.
