COURTESY

Though the whirlwind crowd at the Star Trek shindig in Las Vegas a couple of weeks back meant Sabina Saib (left) and Pilar Montes missed meeting Peter Weller, Kate Mulgrew, or Simon Pegg, they managed to get to the costume contest. In January, at Arts & Lectures’ William Shatner show, Montes’s costume won her passes to the Trekkie “Summit” in L.A., which proved so inspiring she persuaded Saib to attend Vegas. The crowd loved her “Recyled Borg” (her ocular implant made from a cheese container) and demanded the judges send her straight to the finals, where Vulcan Master Saib soon joined her. Would they do it again? “If Patrick Stewart or Benedict Cumberbatch were guests next year, we would be there, too!”

A badly decomposed body was discovered 8/5 at Simonton Cove on San Miguel Island, and officials are still working to identify the deceased person and the circumstances around his or her death. San Miguel Island, which is owned by the U.S. Navy but managed by the National Park Service, was closed to the public in April. Only a small group of rangers and scientists are still allowed on San Miguel. For overnight anchorages, private boaters are permitted at Tyler Bight and Cuyler Harbor.

Four Killed in Quiet Cul-de-Sac

GOLETA VALLEY VIOLENCE: Coroner’s office personnel transport the body of one of Nicolas Holzer’s victims. (bottom) Sheriff Bill Brown addresses the media Tuesday afternoon.

Man Accused of Fatally Stabbing Parents, Sons

A

BY K E L S E Y B R U G G E R

horrific case of domestic violence left four family members stabbed to death in their home near Goleta late Monday night. Authorities say 45-year-old Nicolas Holzer used two kitchen knives to kill his parents, his two sons, and his dog before he called police to turn himself in. Speaking in a “calm” and “matter of fact” tone, Holzer told a dispatcher he had killed his entire family because it was his “destiny,” said Sheriff Bill Brown on Tuesday. Holzer, who is from Santa Barbara, first repeatedly stabbed his father, William Holzer, 73, in the den of the house located at  Walnut Park Lane, where the five of them had lived for approximately seven years, Brown said. Holzer proceeded into his sons’ bedroom as they were sleeping and repeatedly stabbed Sebastian, 13, and Vincent, who was 10. He went on to kill his mother, Sheila Holzer, 74, in the doorway of the boys’ bedroom. Last, Holzer stabbed his Australian shepherd in the hallway. All victims were determined deceased once medics arrived, and authorities detained Holzer at the front door without incident. When asked why he had committed these murders, Holzer told detectives, “I had to.” Brown did not elaborate, and a motive or preceding event has not yet been identified. Investigators are determining the “possibility” or “probability” that mental illness was involved, he added. Drugs or alcohol are not suspected, said Sheriff ’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. Because of 10

THE INDEPENDENT

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy laws, authorities cannot report if Holzer had been taking prescription drugs. The tragic event was “not unexpected,” said a neighbor, who did not want to be identified. Holzer had been unemployed for years and had appeared to be on a downhill slide after his contentious divorce a number of years ago, the neighbor added. “You would have to force him to say hello,” he said. The family did not appear to be happy, the neighbor said, adding Holzer had “psychological problems.” The neighbor had previously told William Holzer to come get him if there were ever a physical confrontation. Law enforcement has not responded to the residence in the past several years, according to Brown; however, a neighbor recalled that an ambulance had responded to the house a couple of years ago, but that could not be confirmed. The only contact Holzer had with Sheriff ’s deputies was in 1996, when he was a witness in an assault case, Brown said. Holzer does not have a criminal record. Holzer had full custody of his two sons, and according to another anonymous neighbor, his ex-wife was never seen at the house. William Holzer was still working part-time as he had five mouths to feed and two grandkids to someday put through college, a neighbor added. William Holzer was a well-known scientist who previously worked for Raytheon and held a patent to an optical measuring device, Brown said. The young boys seemed to be “highly intelligent” but were never seen playing out in the

august 14, 2014

street on the quiet cul-de-sac, said the neighbor. Residents on the street are fairly close, the neighbor added, and recalled William Holzer to be sociable and his wife, Sheila, to be as quiet as a “church mouse.” Vincent, the youngest boy, attended Foothill Elementary School around the corner and would run to and from school every day. Sebastian would have started the 8th grade at La Colina Junior High School in a few weeks. Goleta and Santa Barbara school districts will offer support and counseling to teachers or students who need it, Brown added. A neighbor, who had been up all night, said the crime scene Monday night was very “quiet” and “professional.” Others close by said they did not hear about the gruesome incident until Tuesday on the news. Holzer, who is in custody without bail, will likely be charged with multiple murder counts and felony animal cruelty, said District Attorney Joyce Dudley. Holzer will be officially charged by prosecutor Ron Zonen on Wednesday. “It’s sad and tragic. For the two boys and the grandparents. I know they wanted the best for their son and did what they could to help him,” said the neighbor. “As far as that goes, they were very private. You just never know what happens ■ behind closed doors.”

A Santa Barbara jury found contractor and onetime Republican Party stalwart David Lack (pictured) guilty of fraud and embezzlement after deliberating for about a day and a half following a trial that lasted three weeks. The jury was hung 10-2 whether Lack was guilty on charges of tax evasion. On the alternative embezzlement charge that the victim was over the age of 65, he was found not guilty. That charged stemmed from the victim — Montecito resident and conservative activist Mary Belle Snow — having only just turned 65 at the time. Though Lack’s attorney, Robert Sanger, argued that Lack’s financial affairs were a mess, “but not a criminal mess,” the jurors clearly saw it otherwise. Lack is scheduled for sentencing 9/4. Two Santa Barbara County Superior Court offices will relocate on 10/14 to alleviate understaffing in other court locations and because of ongoing state funding cuts; the changes won’t result in any layoffs, said Darrel Parker, court executive officer. The Juvenile Court at 4500 Hollister Avenue will close, and all cases will move to the current jury assembly building at 1108 Santa Barbara Street; the Hollister Avenue location will become a training facility for the court’s new case-management system. The clerk’s office of the Solvang Division will transfer to the Lompoc Division; traffic issues handled at Lompoc will continue twice per month. Pre-recession, Parker said, the county’s Superior Court system had a $42 million budget; it now hovers at $27 million and has many staffing vacancies.

ELECTIONS The winners of three county races in the June primary all reported more money on hand post-election than their challengers. Second District Supervisor Janet Wolf, who held onto


her seat, raised $249,346 in 2014 and ended with $18,247 left over; Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves outraised Wolf with $387,272 and concluded with $10,354 on hand. Sheriff Bill Brown won reelection and amassed $100,436 in 2014, finishing with $26,751; Sgt. Sandra Brown nabbed $83,787 and ended with a zero balance. The “No on Measure M” campaign scored $131,715 in 2014 and tallied $4,675 remaining; the “Yes on M” team garnered $113,070 and ended with $979. None of the six campaigns noted any lingering debt, save for “Yes on M” ($1,000).

A new English Language Learner (ELL) program director was appointed by the school board on 8/12. Raul Ramirez will fill the new position that the school board approved with the budget in June. The move comes after dozens of parents expressed a need for resources for the Latino community during hearings to discuss the new state funding model held earlier this year. Ramirez will work with parents and implement objects for ELL education. He will earn $138,274.51 a year, according to the district. A UCSB physics professor scored an über-prestigious award and a $3.4 million check this week. Dirk Bouwmeester, who divides his time between Santa Barbara and South Holland, is one of four recipients of this year’s Spinoza Prize from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research.

No candidates filed papers to challenge incumbents Roger Aceves, Michael Bennett, and Paula Perotte in their bids for reelection to the Goleta City Council in November; the deadline was 8/8. The council will meet later this month to either appoint the three or leave the decision up to voters. In June, the council appointed accountant Tony Vallejo after interviewing seven candidates to replace the seat vacated in May by Ed Easton, who moved outside city limits. Aceves and Bennett were first elected in 2006; Perotte won her spot in 2010.

Measure P Lawsuits Commence No sooner had Measure P proponents filed suit in Santa Barbara Superior Court last week — related to opponents’ argument against it in the Voter’s Sample Ballot — than attorney Rachel Hooper, whose Bay Area law firm wrote Measure P, said it wouldn’t move forward. The initiative asks voters in November to outlaw all new fracking, acidizing, and cyclic-steaming operations in the county’s unincorporated regions. The complaint alleged that the “No on P” camp erred in its message that the measure will stop all oil production, including existing projects, and requested that a judge strike some language from the document, which — along with similar papers prepared by the “Yes on P” campaign — will be mailed to voters ahead of the election. Registrar Joe Holland said he hasn’t had a judge amend a Sample Ballot argument in his time in office. Linda Krop, chief counsel for the Environmental Defense Center who filed the complaint with Hooper, said the lawsuit was submitted ahead of analyses from county counsel and the auditor-controller. With those reports now part of the voter information package, Krop said, “our clients are happy with going forward trying to educate the public” and no longer see a need to challenge the opposition’s language. A representative for the “No on P” team said it isn’t expecting to file a similar challenge. Last Friday, county planning staff unveiled a draft of protocols that county counsel recommended be enacted to head off lawsuits from oil companies and landowners if Measure P passes. Although the plans aren’t final yet — the Montecito and county planning commissions will submit comments on the procedures, with the Board of Supervisors having the final say in October — the planning department envisions that takings claims would go directly to the supervisors, while arguments for vested rights would be heard by the department’s director, with appeals allowed to the Planning Commission and supervisors. While their claims made their way through the process, companies wouldn’t be required to stop their existing projects. The two-hour meeting attracted the divided comments typical of previous Measure P hearings, with dozens of environmental activists and industry representatives contradicting each other’s statements about what the ban would mean for the county. — Lyz Hoffman

IT WAS THIS BIG: The Bureau of Reclamation’s Michael Jackson (center, flanked by Chris Dahlstrom, left, and Pablo Arroyave) only looks like he’s talking about the fish he didn’t catch, but the meeting about Lake Cachuma’s water concerned endangered steelhead trout.

Water Warriors Fish Losses Make Temperatures Rise as Supplies Dwindle

R

BY N I C K W E L S H egional bigwigs with the Bureau of Reclamation called an impromptu bureaucratic jam session with South Coast water agency chiefs on August 7 to riff collectively on the theme of “kumbaya.” As Lake Cachuma’s water level has dropped to 34 percent capacity, tempers have flared among many water agencies representing the 200,000 residents who rely upon the reservoir — built and owned by the federal Bureau of Reclamation — over chronic operational problems that in more aquatically abundant times wouldn’t be an issue at all. Giving rise to the tension is the repeated failure of Bureau of Reclamation water pumps designed to send a well-calibrated trickle of water down a 3,000-foot stretch of Hilton Creek — located just south of Bradbury Dam, which forms Lake Cachuma — to keep the creek wet enough to sustain a remnant population of steelhead trout. In the past year and a half, those pumps have been plagued with technical problems, resulting in nearly 900 steelhead dying in perhaps the largest-known violation of the federal Endangered Species Act to occur within Santa Barbara County. Each dead fish constitutes a “taking,” and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) reportedly has been investigating this, with no indication to date what, if anything, it will do about it. Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board (COMB) director Randy Ward first tried to raise hell about the pumps quietly. As the problems persisted, he got louder about it. The Bureau of Reclamation claimed technical difficulties, misdiagnoses, topographical complexities, rigid procurement rules and regulations, and a lack of repair and maintenance for the pumps. Part of the problem was the Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s technical difficulties — or “blips”— causing power outages and shutdowns. What little patience Ward had left disintegrated on Memorial Day weekend when yet another outage occurred and hundreds of fingerlings died in the mud despite heroic efforts by

COMB employees to save the fish. A few months before, the Department of Water Resources had reduced COMB’s state water allocation to zero, and the water agencies had been desperately scrambling to pump into Cachuma the previous year’s leftover state water stored in San Luis Reservoir. But the bureau abruptly ordered COMB to stop pumping from San Luis Reservoir, and instead the bureau would use the intake valve at the base of Bradbury Dam to release water into Hilton Creek. Ward went bureaucratically ballistic. He sent a lengthy memo to Bureau of Reclamation regional executive Michael Jackson, blistering the bureau for its repeated failures. The first to respond was Chris Dahlstrom, executive director of the Santa Ynez River Conservation District, who shot Ward a letter stating he was wrong on the facts and that concerns with the bureau should exclusively come from individual agency executives, such as himself. Dahlstrom also took Ward to task for putting such concerns in writing in a public document. They would now be subject to Freedom to Information requests, he opined, open to anyone who wanted to see them, especially environmental activists who have long contended that the Hilton Creek project does not redress the dam’s damage to the steelhead. The irony is that Dahlstrom put his own objections in writing. Jackson sent Ward a letter of his own, iterating that COMB could probably fix the pumps faster and cheaper than the bureau and could seek reimbursement later, to which Ward responded that there was no legal basis for COMB to be compensated. It was amid that war of words that Jackson and his boss, Pablo Arroyave, flew in from their Fresno headquarters, seeking to reassure the Santa Barbara, Goleta, Carpinteria, Montecito, and Santa Ynez water agencies that they take Cachuma’s problems very seriously. Most of their time, they pointed out, has been consumed dealing with a water shortage of staggering dimensions in the Central Valley. There, they said, the Bureau of Reclamation runs water facilities that normally hold cont’d page 12

STEAMED UP: Randall Ward of the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board popped a cork after hundreds of endangered steelhead trout were killed this year due to repeated malfunctions by Bureau of Reclamation water pumps.

11 million acre-feet to be distributed among growers and urban users. Now, they have less than one-fifth of that to make do with. The good news — at least in the short-term — is that Hilton Creek’s two pumps are currently working and the bureau is getting an emergency backup system, all at a combined cost of about $2 million. Much more on everyone’s minds is the Biological Opinion, or in

bureau-speak the “bi-op.” The existing bi-op — a new one is due next year — states Hilton Creek gets water releases until the dam drops to 30,000 acre-feet, which everyone agrees will happen in the next two months. The problem, explained Jackson, is that the bi-op provides absolutely no guidance about what happens after the dam dips below that level. That’s now up to Jackson, the Bureau of Reclamation, and NMFS. One complication COMB members foresee is that the Hilton Creek failures will be viewed as COMB’s failures rather than the bureau’s. Such an interpretation could cause NMFS to impose even more fish-friendly requirements in the next biological opinion, mitigations that have already cost millions in biological studies and environmental planning. Throughout last Thursday’s meeting, Dahlstrom made frequent remarks insisting people and crops should come first, and he’s hardly the only COMB member with this opinion. COMB member Dale Francisco, a Santa Barbara city councilmember, summed up the concerns: “The success of Hilton Creek is absolutely vital to our credibility as good faith operators in terms of steelhead restoration. Over the years, we’ve put enormous resources into this creek and this effort. … To have these steelhead losses now that were so entirely preventable is of great concern. At times you have ■ to say,‘What is the bureau doing?’”

Goleta Goes Off-Target

A record-breaking, headline-making holiday-season data breach was the Grinch that stole consumer trust (and subsequent spending sprees) from Target — and it could be one of the reasons for rumors that the big-box superstore is reconsidering its Goleta expansion. According to Greg Bartholomew — a broker who represents the owners of the property at 170 Los Carneros Way and 6466 Hollister Avenue, where a Target has been planned — the two-and-a-half-year contract between the landowners and the company expired a month ago. The company’s application with the City of Goleta remains active, Bartholomew said, adding that he’s not aware of the company exploring other area sites. Jennifer Carman, the city’s planning director, said the company hasn’t communicated to the city any plans to move on, but she noted the company has yet to fork over the approximately $250,000 to cover the project’s environmental analysis, which would be required to get the planning process moving further. No public meetings have been held since an April 2013 Design Review Board meeting. “This is on a normal track,” Carman said. “We’ve just been in a waiting stage on Target for some time.” “Goleta is a great market for Target, and we continue to consider new opportunities to serve guests there,” said Target spokesperson Kristen Emmons. “However, I have nothing to share at this time around plans for a new store.” As proposed, the store would clock in at 160,000 square feet, with a first-floor parking structure, second-floor shopping area, and an outdoor eating area. To make the store fit on that site, the Goleta Valley Athletic Club would be knocked down. Club owner Jarrod Schwartz said the gym is preparing for “major renovations” and has a lease good for another 10 years. Details with Target haven’t been worked out, Schwartz said, noting that previous talks indicated that Target would pay for the club to relocate nearby. Several South Coast insiders said they weren’t surprised to hear rumblings of trouble in Target paradise, pointing to previous failed attempts. Multiple tries to plop the store on City of Santa Barbara–owned airport property fell through, and with the city’s recent sale of eight acres of land to nonprofit Direct Relief, many said there would no longer be enough room for a Target store. Frequently floated is the idea to convert La Cumbre Plaza’s Sears store into a Target, but talks between the company and the mall as recently as a year ago went nowhere; Sears also owns what would be Target’s competitor, Kmart. Moving the bull’s-eye further from view could be the corporation’s continuing fallout from last year’s hacking incident, which exposed the financial and personal information of more than 100 million customers, and its underwhelming expansion into Canada. The company has since undergone leadership changes, with a new CEO — Lyz Hoffman taking the helm this week.

— Attorney Bill Makler boat. That’s the number of people Anderle concluded the District Attorney declined to prosecute even though they’d been arrested by the CHP between June 2009 and the present. “When you think of the Internet and search tools that we can now use to find out embarrassing information on just about anybody, this is really big,” said Bill Makler, who, along with Robin Unander, represented Schmidt in what evolved into a class-action lawsuit against the CHP. Such information is routinely used by prospective employers in evaluating candidates for various jobs. “This means someone need not be followed around for the rest of their life by inaccurate information,” said Makler. “It means that people like my client can now answer they’ve never been arrested without fear of committing perjury.” Efforts to contact Nancy James, who repre-

But to the extent it provides guidance in similar cases filed in the future, it could prove significant.

LEND ME YOUR EARS: Dreams hatched in February by (from left) Jennifer Ferro of KCRW, Ron Gallo of the Santa Barbara Foundation, and Brenda Barnes of KUSC have been set back at least three months due to snags involving leasing details and legal fees.

NPR Saturation? Four Public Radio Stations Come to Town

A

BY N I C K W E L S H ny week now, Santa Barbara’s radio airwaves could have as many as four National Public Radio (NPR) stations vying for the ear space and pledge week donations of listeners countywide. Two months ago, the number of NPR affiliates jumped from two to three when Pasadenabased KPCC — operated by Southern California Public Radio and offering an all-news, all-talk format — acquired . FM and quietly began broadcasting in Santa Barbara. And two weeks ago, the station began plastering the back of MTD buses with its billboards bearing the slogan, “No rant, no slant.” In so doing, KPCC managed to edge into Santa Barbara ahead of its longtime rival in the Los Angeles radio market, Santa Monica–based KCRW, best known for its adventurous musical and cultural programming. KCRW was expected to start broadcasting in Santa Barbara this May out of studio space at Antioch University downtown. To that end, KCRW reportedly hired two on-air announcers and one news reporter to produce locally originated content. It also set up equipment in The Santa Barbara Independent offices to allow direct transmission from Independent writers and reporters. By contrast, KPCC will broadcast from Pasadena using existing station staff, offering an intense focus on regional news but with no locally produced content. These two newcomers will find themselves forced to carve out a listener niche in a public radio market that’s been long served by KCSB out of San Luis Obispo (.) and KCLU (.) out of Thousand Oaks, raising the urgent question just how much All Things Considered can one town consider? These preexisting stations are hardly sitting still. KCLU has bumped its broadcast power 25-fold in recent months, and KCBX hired its first news director ever, Randol White, at the beginning of the year. Much of this airwave commotion was sparked when the Santa Barbara Foundation sought to divest itself of KDB — . on the dial — one of the oldest allclassical stations left in the United States. KDB was until recently a privately owned, for-profit station, but it placed a strain on foundation resources in terms of money, time, and management expertise.

In February, the foundation announced it had sold KDB to KCRW for $1 million. As part of the deal, KDB’s call letters, frequency assignment, and programming would be absorbed by KUSC, which has long provided Santa Barbara listeners an all-classical format from programmers operating in studios in downtown Los Angeles. Beginning in March, KDB began laying off its handful of employees, and this Saturday, KDB programmer Steve Murphy bid a sorrowful farewell to listeners before he and his family left for the East Coast. In this proposed swap, KUSC would, in turn, yield its space at the left end of the dial (. FM) to KCRW, a frequency regarded as the golden goose in this transaction. Technically, the swap is a relatively simple matter of yanking wires one place and plugging them in someplace else, explained John Franklin, co-owner of Community Radio Inc., which owns and operates the large antenna farm on Gibraltar Peak from which most South Coast radio stations broadcast. But legally, Franklin lamented, it’s been anything but simple. KDB, it turns out, didn’t have a lease with Community Radio but had instead negotiated a real estate easement — a very different legal tool — with Community Radio’s predecessors. That meant a new lease had to be drafted, but according to Franklin, KUSC and KCRW have proved slow to respond with lease language they could live with. In addition, he said KUSC pushed for changes that might increase Community Radio’s vulnerability to legal action in case of natural disasters. On top of that, he said, there’s the unresolved matter of $30,000 in attorneys’ fees thus far. “This whole thing has just gotten bogged down,” Franklin said.“Every week, we say,‘Any day now.’ But we’ve been saying that pretty much every day for the last three weeks.” Clearly, it hasn’t worked out optimally for KCRW, either. In June, the station took out big display ads on the back of MTD buses — as KPCC has — but in deference to the slow pace of contract talks, it discontinued those ads indefinitely. Tim Owens, who works both for KDB and for the Santa Barbara Foundation, cautioned that such fits and starts are part of the natural order of business transactions. “It will happen,” he said. “It’s all just part of the process.” ■

Unchained Dogs of Pokey LaFarge

CRUNCHED NUMBERS: When I die and drag

myself up to heaven, I expect it will look exactly like the Santa Barbara City College campus. And when God comes out to greet me, She — this is a Santa Barbara fantasy, after all — will radiate all the billowing wisdom, strength, and acceptance of Lori Gaskin, City College’s reigning Jefe del Mundo. The only problem with this vision is that thousands of students from all over the world are currently poaching my dream. And none of them are waiting to die to get here. Giving urgency to such theological ruminations is that Gaskin and crew have their hands out, asking voters this November to approve something called Measure S, which will extract $288 million from the pockets of Santa Barbara property owners over the next 25 years to underwrite the cost of major construction projects befitting a campus that just won the “best community college in the nation” award. For the record, that’s a lot of construction and a lot of money. Unfortunately for Gaskin, this proposition has aroused the wrathful curiosity of Ernie Salomon, Santa Barbara’s bushybrowed troll under the proverbial bridge. By any measure, Ernie qualifies as a curmudgeon’s curmudgeon, but Gaskin would be ill-advised to dismiss him as merely another occupant of Santa Barbara’s peanut gallery. Yes, Ernie experiences serious difficulty not telling people just how stupid they really are. Even so, he actually has a big heart, considerable street smarts, and gobs of energy. He also hosts his own public

access TV show. Right now, Ernie is steamed

about Measure S. His big question is this: “Why should Santa Barbara homeowners shell out $170 a year in additional property taxes to pay for gratuitous improvements when only 43 percent of the full-time students now attending City College actually come from the City College enrollment district?” While Ernie and I often look at things through the same telescope, we tend to see them from the opposite ends. As a general rule, I figure if you’re lucky enough to own your own home in Santa Barbara, you’ve already won the lottery. So if you’re forced to pay what it costs to see about 10 movies a year to grease the gears of higher education, that qualifies as an acceptable shakedown in my book. But what’s no longer acceptable is City College’s stubborn refusal to acknowledge the serious impacts their growing student body is having on the city’s notoriously challenged rental housing market. What’s equally unacceptable is the patiently polite, nothing-can-be-done fatalism of City Hall’s response to this problem. In recent years, City College has emerged as ground zero for gazillions of students from Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Japan, and Brazil. Before that, they hailed from China and Ireland. Very cool and cosmopolitan. Little wonder, then, that at the sprawling apartment complex located right between City College’s East and West campuses, the new owners just installed a regulation-size flagpole with the flags of Japan, Brazil, Germany, and Sweden, not to

mention those of the United States and California, flapping in the breeze. Campus officials estimate 6 percent of the student body comes from abroad. According to my math, that translates to about 1,800 bodies a school year. That number will go up even further because the campus cap on out-of-country students was just increased to 8 percent. Throw in another 4 percent to account for students hailing from outside the state, and it’s easy to understand how most classes are filled beyond capacity only seconds after enrollment starts. And that’s on top of the sizable number of students traditionally drawn to Santa Barbara from all over the state to take advantage of the school’s well-known back-door transfer privileges into UCSB, now one of the harder UC schools to get into. I get it. City College is a great school. Who in their right mind wouldn’t go there? I also get why school officials like the out-of-state, outof-country students. Money. In-state students taking a full load pay roughly $700 a semester in fees and tuition. By contrast, those from the outside pay $4,100. Many of these students come from wealthy families. Others are practically paid by their governments to attend, housing costs included. But here’s the deal: California’s community college system was invented to serve as the proverbial bootstraps by which those attempting to make it the hard way pulled themselves up. It was never envisioned to function as a fun-in-the-sun, educational-touristdestination selfie that City College is now in danger of becoming.

Reaching New Heights

Historically, City College has simply refused to address the housing needs of its students. To do so, its leaders explained, would interfere with its core mission of providing the aforementioned educational bootstraps. In other words, stop whining. But given that so many of these boots now bear the Gucci name brand, that rationale no longer applies. According to economic experts, Santa Barbara’s rents have increased at a record pace in the two years since the recovery. It now takes an income of $66,000 to “afford”— at least how the economists define it — the “average” rental. Much of this acceleration took place at exactly the same time as the spike in foreign enrollments occurred at City College. Coincidence or causality? You decide. Either way, you don’t need a PhD next to your last name to recognize the shifting demographics now afflicting the city’s lower Westside. What was once home to low-income Latino families packed in like sardines has now become “Isla Vista lite,” where City College students are now crammed in like anchovies. The demographics of the Mesa may differ, but the dynamics are the same. Lori Gaskin, do something; City Hall, insist. Clearly, no easy or obvious solutions exist. But if you want to pick my pocket, Lori, I need to see serious effort. Otherwise, I’ll spend my money on movies, atrocious as they are. In the meantime, maybe we can all sing along to one of my favorite songs: “Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.” — Nick Welsh

People Need Not Apply

I

f corporations are people, they should be held to some standard of human behavior. Clearly these “people” should provide some semblance of that ancient social practice … customer service. I purchased a refrigerator recently online — the contemporary, effortless, facile way to buy. But at this point the ease ended. Three weeks, three stores, three brands, three delivery companies later, I had a working refrigerator. The first and second new appliances failed to cool. Once I purchased online, no person was available. Once or twice I connected with a human voice, only to meet with unhelpful, unprofessional cyborgs, each with a scripted, tedious response, unable to solve a messy human problem. So now these corporations are in charge of birth control, have special tax brackets, can buy elections, and have limited, if any, liability for wrongs committed. And they can’t even deliver a working — Jane L. Benefield, Carpinteria refrigerator.

Casa and the Homeless

I

do not write to condemn the plight of Casa Esperanza but to highlight the existence of the residents who dwell within Santa Barbara’s mainstream solution to homelessness. I myself was once a resident. I have moved on, but I have come to this conclusion: Casa Esperanza is not a “boarding house” for those who refuse to go forward and better their lives, yet some believe it is okay to loaf around all day or for years without making an effort to obtain some type of employment, save money, and transition out of homelessness. Others with monthly income from the government refuse

to put away a good chunk and move into stable, permanent housing. The question is why? On the positive side, a large handful of individuals have accomplished the great feat and dream of independent living; they have not let the obstacles of life derail them. With the help they received, they are living it. Kudos to all of them, and I wish the best of luck to others who have not decided that enough is enough. — Rey Angulo Jr., Eugene, Oregon

I’ve been able to see why the blue handicapped parking spaces are close to stairs or elevators and exits or entrances. I’ve also seen why the people who park there need extra time to set up their wheelchair or simply can’t move as quickly as most of us. What I don’t appreciate are the people who fake a need for the disabled placard. The downtown parking facilities give everyone 75 minutes free, and they give persons with disabilities 2.5 hours free, as well as a highly reduced maximum fee of $7 (instead of the standard $25 maximum). The only requirement to receive the discount is an unexpired disabled placard, and when drivers present one, we parking attendants are not about to question them. But I’ve noticed an alarming amount of citizens abusing Handicap Placard Parking Discounts. I’d like to increase public awareness about this all-too-common issue because people who actually need the handicap placards are the ones who need the discount. A cornucopia of healthy drivers are shameless in saying the placard is “my aunt’s, my uncle’s,” and I’ve even witnessed a parent telling their downtownemployed child to “borrow Grandpa’s.” Those with disabilities face monstrous and time-consuming obstacles while navigating tasks we take for granted and perform easily. Stop exploiting social systems intended to aid those who are in need! It’s not only unfair to those who use the system, but it creates a nega— Sean Mullen, S.B. tive stigma toward it!

ast time we had a drought, we were asked to cut back on our water — and we did so with low-flow toilets and showerheads. Once again

we are asked to cut back even further (from our already cut-back allowance), so we are losing our lawns. Why are the City of Goleta and the county allowing more and more building? Why is Goleta Water District allowing our water to be trucked to Montecito — then they can be praised for saving water? Is this what we have been conserving for?

tung! On Jellyfish Blooms and the Future of the Oceans by Lisa-ann Gershwin has raised concern for what she considers the unstoppable worldwide proliferation of jellyfish in the planet’s oceans. She attributes this to sea waters’ warming, increased acidification, and depleting oxygen (conditions in which jellies can thrive) as well as to the massive availability of floating home bases for jellies’ offspring created by plastic bags and by the escalating disappearance of jellies’ predators, sea turtles, via plastic bag ingestion. Indeed, in 2006, the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan had to leave its Australian port because jellyfish were destroying the cooling of its nuclear plant by massively clogging its water intake pipes. Is there a plan to avoid this possibility in a resurrected desalination plant in Santa — William Smithers, S.B. Barbara?

letters cont’d process water for another 130,000 people, based on a figure of 200,000 population for the greater S.B. area. We’ve all heard that desal water is expensive, but how expensive? How does the city plan to finance the construction? A water bond measure on the November ballot could offer residents two options: construct a new plant and own and price the water, or contract with a utility company that would own the water and sell it to the Municipal Water Authority; as the owner, it would have the upper hand in setting the price. Lake Cachuma is due to be completely dry by winter 2014, and construction on a desal plant will take a year or more. Why the silence and inaction when the November primary is so close? That choice should not be lost. I encourage everyone to talk to the city councilmembers. We’ve elected them to do a very important job, and all I — Chris Dille, S.B. hear is silence.

Measure P Pundits

I

f Measure P passes, our county and the entire state will sink even lower into the ranks of poverty. California was once ranked number 5 in economic standing in the world. Today it stands at number 8. Liberals and progressives have devastated our county, state, and country with their forced regulations on every business they can bully. I have listened to some of the arguments for Measure P and have yet seen or heard any proof of their accusations about how oil has contaminated any water source because of fracking or steam injection. What I have heard is a lot of what ifs, maybes, possiblys, and other unsubstantiated phrases from the Anti-Oil Brigade. If Spain had said to Columbus, “What if?” or “Maybe,” where would the world be now? I have a big concern for who is funding the Anti-Oil Groups here. If America stops producing oil, Arab countries that hate us will sell billions of barrels to us and supply their means for our destruction. The liberals in the ’70s had our speed limits lowered to 55 mph because it saved gas. With an instant mileage meter in today’s cars, we are

able to see that as another untruth by the Anti-Oil bunch. Who is funding this attack on America? — Ed Pilkington, Santa Maria

red Starrh, an almond farmer in Kern County, fought the oil industry and won. The court couldn’t deny evidence that proved that polluted wastewater from steaminjection oil operations had killed his orchards and cost him millions of dollars. Robert and Lisa Parr in Texas won a court settlement against nearby fracking after proving definitively that the operations had polluted their air and water and caused them to suffer terrible illnesses. Despite the evidence from proven court cases like these and study after study, the oil industry won’t admit the significant risks associated with fracking, cyclic steam injection, and acidization. Meanwhile, they’ve been fracking in secret offshore and dumping the wastewater into the ocean. They threaten to sue us for using our democratic process to protect our water supplies. Luckily for us, these kinds of bans are legally defensible and tend to hold up in court. A New York court recently upheld several fracking bans that local municipalities put in place. One California court has already upheld a fracking ban. Also, Measure P exempts anyone with a valid legal claim. — Max Golding, S.B.

For the Record

¶ In “Water Conservation Crawl,” a news story last week, we misstated the amount the South Coast Water Authority pays for state water; that amount is $50 million annually. ¶ Last week’s news brief stating Santa Barbara’s City Council would not appeal the gang injunction indicated Mayor Helene Schneider and Police Chief Cam Sanchez proposed the injunction.

A former executive director of the Arthritis Foundation, Ruth also served as president of the Mesa Improvement Association and was active in Los Fiesteros Dance Club as well as Fiesta. Throughout her life, Ruth’s beauty and eternal optimism never dimmed. Like her husband, Ruth could smile with her eyes.

She epitomized elegance, and her wit and charm would cause those around her to laugh often, sometimes at the most unexpected moments. She enjoyed reading, traveling and playing “Dimes” with wives of El Pescatores social club. Her zest for life was contagious to those around her. Kind and loving, Ruth was passionate about many things, but none more than her family. She was deeply involved in their lives, from hosting Sunday breakfasts every weekend at her home to interacting with them on “The Facebook,” as she called it. Ruth was known to be honest, but tempered everything she said with her trademark smile and affection. Ruth Kallman made the world a better place. Her husband of  years, Robert Kallman, and their beloved son Cliffy preceded her in death.

Bikes and Cars What Do You Prefer?

BY FRANK HOTCHKISS Councilmember, Santa Barbara City Council

C

ity of Santa Barbara planners are proposing to eliminate car lanes and on-street parking in hopes of luring bicyclers to commute to work. This might also reduce traffic and lessen pollution, however slightly. But since only about 3.5 percent of all Santa Barbarans ride bikes — and most of them are recreational riders, not commuters — the actual benefits of this would be negligible. People are just not interested in riding to work. Is this bike push a good idea? Frankly, I don’t think so. Why? Because reducing automobile travel lanes would increase congestion. Reducing on-street parking, particularly for local businesses, could be disastrous because patrons couldn’t park near shops and stores and therefore wouldn’t patronize them. Transportation planning should facilitate getting from here to there quickly and conveniently. Initiatives that defeat this purpose do not benefit ordinary people but a Remember, select few with a narrow about 96 percent of agenda: bicycling. That’s my opinion, but Santa Barbara residents your opinion is more important than mine. aren’t bike riders and What do you think? probably never will be. St af f bi c ycl i ng enthusiasts, along with advocates such as the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition, maintain that if biking is made more convenient, you, I, and many others will join them (actually, only some of them, since many of them don’t ride bikes to work, either) in pedaling to work every day. To that end, the city is planning a number of “outreach” sessions where the public is invited to comment. Jaded as I may be, I suspect that this will be pointless. Bicycle enthusiasts/ advocates will show up en masse to promote any expanded biking plans, while the rest of the city shrugs and gets on with its life. Then the staff will report back to the City Council “overwhelming support” for changes that staff and the advocates wanted all along. Enthusiasts will prevail, while the majority of Santa Barbarans remain unrepresented. Remember, about 96 percent of Santa Barbara residents aren’t bike riders and probably never will be. They want the daily convenience of automobile transportation to facilitate their lives. Councilmember Dale Francisco and I have suggested that to gauge public opinion and preference accurately, we should conduct an independent telephone poll to determine what you really want, whether it’s increased biking lanes and facilities, retaining what we have now but not increasing them, or reducing the number of lanes designated for biking, and returning them to greater automobile usage. This will cost about $15,000 and will be free of bias. I don’t know if there is a clear-cut consensus on these questions. Some folks think that bicycling is the way of the future. They may be right. Others think bikes are fine for some but by no means for all. They are never going to ride to Trader Joe’s, Ralphs, or CVS to pick up goods. For them, their cars are their sole, best means of transportation. I’d like to know what you think. Please feel free to send me an email at fhotchkiss@santabarbaraca.gov. I look forward to your response. One thing is for sure: Bike riders are obligated to follow the Rules of the Road just the same as automobile drivers. I hope they take their responsibilities seriously to avoid accidents, particularly to pedestrians who can get mowed down by a speeding biker ignoring a stop sign, crosswalk, or traffic direction. ■

Who Could Afford Jackson’s Ranch?

son’s former ranch going on the market, who’s likely to want — or be able — to pay an estimated $100 million for it? Best guess, according to one local real estate expert I spoke to: “One of the Internet guys.” That’s where the ultra-big money is these days, Silicon Valley, not Hollywood or Wall Street, said my source, who asked not to be identified. Still, you can’t rule out an entertainment celeb or trust-fund chieftain. He cited the example of Google chair Eric Schmidt, worth an estimated $8.3 billion and owner of a reported $38 million Montecito getaway of his own. So who’d be willing to shell out those kind of shekels for 2,700 acres up on remote Figueroa Mountain Road, far from the bright lights and posh eateries on Coast Village Road? For the same reason Jackson did, my source said: “a hideout.” A new Neverland. Part-time Montecito billionaire Tom Barrack hasn’t listed the property yet and presumably would offer it privately through his many contacts. Figures of $50 million and $60 million have been thrown out. But my source thinks the ranch is worth more like $100 million, based on its beauty and its large home, when compared with prices being asked on other large Santa Ynez Valley ranches. Besides, Neverland has a certain Jacksonian cachet that no other valley ranch can match.

Jackson bought the spread from Bill Bone in 1988, created his private amusement park, and invited children on outings. But after being acquitted of child molestation in 2005, he packed up and left, never to return. All the animals and circus amusements are gone. Previously, Jackson paid $15 million to settle another molestation accusation. Recently, James Safechuck, 36, sued the entertainer’s estate, claiming molestation beginning when he was 10. Jackson reportedly wanted to be buried at the ranch, raising the possibility of fans swarming to the gates, as at Elvis’s shrine, Graceland. That prospect horrified peace-loving Santa Ynez Valley residents but never came to pass. (After his 2009 death, Jackson was laid to rest at Forest Lawn.) Barrack’s Colony Capital took over the $23 million debt in 2007. The ranch is zoned for agriculture, and rezoning for other uses or cutting it up into smaller parcels would face great opposition. LIZ WAS WED THERE: One fine day in October

1991, Sue and I were driving up to the Jackson Ranch to track down some crazed but amusing National Enquirer husband-wife operatives who were part of the media circus at Elizabeth Taylor’s wedding to construction worker Larry Fortensky. The tabloid folks were masters of deceit, and over drinks at Mattei’s Tavern the night before, they regaled us with almostbelievable stories of their adventures among

the rich, famous, and trashy. The husband claimed that he’d snuck into the rehearsal the night before, pretending to be part of the band before being kicked out. Liz and Larry, you’ll recall, met romantically while in rehab at the Betty Ford Center. It was her eighth marriage. Passing the Santa Ynez Airport, Sue and I spotted a guy in a jumpsuit, wearing a helmet being fitted with a video camera. Ever curious, we stopped and learned that he was planning to parachute into the NEVERLAND: The tigers and trains may be gone, but wedding ceremony while videoing Michael Jackson’s 2,700 acres in Santa Ynez remains a the wedding. On the way down, handsome property. his helmet gizmo would transmit scenes to friends out on the road to be sold for arrested upon landing. And the helmet plan fizzed. The technology didn’t work, and he big bucks. This we had to see. By the time we got to the landed in jail. It was one of those weird days, like a B movie ranch, a fleet of paparazzi helicopters was buzzing overhead. This daredevil was risking being come to life. chopped up by choppers on the way down to a $2 million bash being attended by celebs of the OKLAHOMA! Back in 1943, Broadway hosted a day, including Nancy Reagan, Liza Minnelli, musical set in an unlikely location: Oklahoma. It Eddie Murphy, Pia Zadora, George Hamilton, was a major hit. So was the movie that followed. Merv Griffin, and Macaulay Culkin. Brooke Now a stage version has arrived at Solvang’s Shields was MJ’s date. Festival Theater through August 24, thanks to Ah, but the best-laid plans of mice, men, PCPA. The magic of the Rodgers and Hamand media hounds often go astray. He leaped, merstein musical mesmerized me once again — Barney Brantingham avoided the spinning blades, and was promptly last weekend.

Everybody sing, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” Summer has come to an end, and it’s time to get those moppets back in school: back to the books, social drama, sports practices, rehearsals, and homework. Not everyone can pick those shavers up right after school, so The Santa Barbara Independent has gathered some after-school options to fit the needs of your child and you. There are performing arts, surfing, sports, educational and tutoring opportunities, and so much more, maybe something new and untried. So sign them up, relax, and sing, “It’s the hap-happiest season of all!”

Last Thursday, August 7, close to 300 people took to the ocean as part of the Reef & Run series, which dedicated the 500-meter swim (pictured above) event to Nick Johnson (far right). Johnson, a UCSB water polo athlete and instructor in the city’s Junior Lifeguard program, died at age 19 last March from apparent shallow-water blackout during a swimming practice. The usual registration fees were waived, but a minimum $5 donation was requested; $2,800 was raised for the Nick Johnson Memorial Fund. “Nicholas will forever be remembered for his hard work ethic, teamwork, and his ability to find the best in everyone he encountered,” said Rich Hanna, the city’s supervisor of the Junior Lifeguard program. After the swims, folks gathered at East Beach Grill (left) to remember Nick and his connection to the local aquatic community.

It doesn’t take much to be feted in the U.S.; August is touted as national goat cheese month, for example. Among the seemingly silly subjects recognized (others include Happiness Happens, Audio Appreciation, and Panini) there is at least one that does deserve a shout-out — the honeybee. An integral player in the balance of nature, the striped flyer also claims August as the month of its national day, and Flying Goat Cellars is throwing them a party in the form of a wine and honey tasting. Called Sustainable Gardening Begins with Honey Bees, the event features an award-winning exhibit from the Santa Maria Valley Beekeepers Association and a real hive on display and tips on beekeeping and sustainable gardening from members of the Lompoc Valley Beekeepers Association. And, of course, there will be honey to taste and wines to sip. Pooh Bear would approve. The affair is part of Flying Goat Cellars’ Wine & Culture in the Ghetto series and takes place Saturday, August 16, 11 a.m. -4 p.m., at Flying Goat Cellars, 1520 East Chestnut Court, Lompoc Wine Ghetto. For more information, call 736-9032 or visit flyinggoatcellars.com. —MD

Courthouse Viewing

PAUL WELLMAN

Event

In the early morning of June 1925, a 6.8 earthquake destroyed most of Santa Barbara. But up from the ashes, new structures were built, this time in a cohesive architectural style called Spanish Colonial Revival. One of the most recognized examples of this character is the Santa Barbara Courthouse, which its designer Charles Willard Moore deemed “the grandest Spanish Colonial Revival structure ever built.” Today, folks can enjoy the beauty of the Courthouse, which is a California Historical Landmark, from the gardens to the mural room to the clock tower. Docent-led tours occur daily at 2 p.m. and on Monday-Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 a.m. Tours of the gardens and for youth groups are available by appointment. The Seth Thomas Tower Clock and Clock Gallery are open every Wednesday and Saturday, 1-2 p.m., and by appointment. For more information, call 962-6464. — MD

ostly Rhodesian Ridgeback Santa Barbara is known for its beautiful beaches and weather, but in canine circles, it’s also noted as one of the oldest Kennel Club Show sites. The November 6, 1920, issue of Field and Stream magazine claimed that the Santa Barbara show, which was at the Ambassador Hotel off West Beach, “may well go down in history as the most picturesque dog show ever assembled.” Now held at Earl Warren Showgrounds, the S.B. Kennel Club’s dog show is still going strong nearly 100 years later. More than 175 breeds will be represented at this year’s annual gathering, competing for various titles, including Best in Show. For the third year, the “bully” breeds — which include bullmastiffs, American Staffordshire terriers, mini bull terriers, Boston terriers, bull terriers, Staffordshire bull terriers, bulldogs, and French bulldogs — will get to strut their stuff at Bullyganza. Good news for hound fans, too, as a new event has been added: the Sighthound Spectacular. Eligible dogs include Afghans, basenji, greyhounds, Italian greyhounds, Irish wolfhounds, Rhodesian ridgebacks, and saluki, among others. And back for a fifth year is the Breeders Showcase, which offers a purse of more than $15,000. The dog shows begin Friday, August 22, with the Simi Valley Kennel Club Dog Show, followed by the S.B. Kennel Club events Saturday-Sunday, August 23-24, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., at the Earl Warren Showgrounds, 3400 Calle Real. Cost: $8, adults; $20, per family; $5 kids under 12 and seniors.

Too Old for a Micro-Mini?

here’s a colorful old expression favored by cattish biddies. They let it fly when they spy a middle-aged woman sporting the flashy or revealing clothing you’d normally see on a much younger lass. “Mutton dressed as lamb,” the harpies hiss, straightening the seams of their own sensible vestments and clomping away in their Easy Spirit mid-heel wedges. I confess the phrase has been flitting, uninvited, through my head lately as I get dressed: Hmm, the miniskirt today? Maybe, Ms. Mutton. Or the skinny jeans and pirate boots? Sounds great, Mutton Mama. Mutton, if you didn’t know, is the meat of old sheep — although the sheep prefer to be called “mature.” It’s tougher than lamb. It’s cheaper. And according to one online cooking site, “Many find it distasteful.” Since tough, cheap, and distasteful describe me and most of my girlfriends — and since, at 42, I just received a heck-yeah birthday gift card to Forever  — I have to wonder if I’ve skidded right over that lamb-tomutton line without knowing it. Is this the year they’ll drag me from Macy’s juniors department and shove me into the Charter Club section to collect my tailored capris and nautical tees? Dear god. The Daily Mail — arbiter of nothing significant, ever — once published a survey decreeing that broads should stop wearing tube tops at age 33, leather pants at 34, miniskirts at 35, see-through chiffon blouses at 40, knee-high boots at 47, and the list goes on. But since that seemed stupid, I asked my girlfriends for insight. Their responses were as varied as their skirt by Starshine lengths: … My 21-year-old son said to me recently, “Where are you going dressed like it’s Coachella? Don’t you know you’re email: starshine@roshell.com halfway to 90?” I didn’t know whether to laugh or flip him off as I headed out the door. … … A micro-mini and a deep cleavage reveal do not go together after 40 — choose one or the other. … … Women should wear what makes them feel confident and secure, regardless of some societal stereotype. … … But there’s a line between feeling confident and looking desperate. … When one old (er, mature) high school buddy of mine complained that the only fashion choices at our age are “way immature or near retirement,” a mutual friend interjected, “Girlfriend, if I catch your hot body in a Chico’s, I’m staging an intervention.” Here’s what I think. We lamb-dressers — henceforth, let’s call us frilly mignon — aren’t trying to compete with twentysomethings or to fool anyone into thinking we’re younger. We don girly getups for three reasons:

() We know better than anyone that we’ll never again look as good as we do right this very minute. Peeking back at old photos, we’ve come to realize that we didn’t appreciate what we had while we had it — and that two years from now, we’ll have even less of it. So we’re gonna show it off a bit longer and maybe even a bit louder, thank you very much. () Putting on something you wore when you were young — short shorts, say, or a backless halter—is like listening to a song you loved when you were a girl. It’s a slightly-too-tight time machine that helps you recognize the old “you” within. And she’s kind of a hottie.

Or as one of my girlfriends says, “I’m currently vacationing and have loaded my 44-year-old boobs into a tube top, so I should probably stay out of this discussion — except to say that as I get older and less self-conscious, I think it’s good to teach our daughters that not every flaw needs covering. And if I have three folds in my armpit, so be it.” Starshine Roshell is the author of Broad Assumptions.

living | Sports HOMETOWN HEROES: Bill Pintard (far left) and members of the 2014 Foresters arrive in Carpinteria after a 27-hour bus ride from Wichita, Kansas, where the team was crowned the National Baseball Conference champions. It was the last time many of them will be together. “It was an awesome summer,” said pitcher Jon Duplantier (second from left), who was named MVP of the series.

Jon Duplantier, a strapping pitcher from

Rice University who was named MVP of the NBC World Series, said, “It was an awesome summer. Bill teaches life. This was the best thing that could’ve happened to me at the best time.” Duplantier is a good bet to follow the 30 Foresters who have gone on to play in the major leagues, including Kansas City’s ace pitcher James Shields.

THE PASSION: “Pinner leads the league in passion,” said Mick Kelleher, a longtime friend of Pintard who has been the New York Yankees’ first-base coach the past six seasons. “It’s a great story, what he’s accomplished with the Foresters. He gets the most out of his players because they can see how much he loves the game.” Pintard’s mainstream profession is in real estate. Besides managing the Foresters, he moonlights as an amateur scout for the Yankees, the team of his youth. He was born in Queens, N.Y., and grew up in Ridgewood, N.J. “There was a baseball field across the street from my home,” he said. “We’d play another neighborhood in a ‘World Series.’ We’d handwrite the numbers on our shirts.” His mother, Kathryn Pintard, was once a secretary for the Wilkes-Barre Barons and was squired by future Yankees manager Bob Lemon. “She came to a lot of my games,” he said. “My father [Herb] was a hardworking guy in construction. He used to catch me until he took one in the shins and said, ‘Hell with that.’ ” The family moved to California when Bill was in high school. He pitched for an Arcadia team that won the CIF 4A championship in 1965. He played on a Citrus College team that was one of the state’s best, but at Gonzaga University his career was curtailed by a back injury. He never played pro ball. Eventually he channeled his love for the game into coaching. Pintard got involved with the Foresters when his son, Eric, a Carpinteria High graduate, pitched for the club. In the great tragedy of his life, Eric was stricken by cancer and died in 2004 after surviving for 10 spirited years. Eric started the Hugs for Cubs program through which the Foresters provide baseball therapy to children with cancer. No appearance in Wichita is complete without the team’s visit to a cancer ward. “It fills a void I had since I lost my son,” Pintard said of his extended coaching career. “It reminds me of the good times I had with him on the baseball field.” He recently dealt with another loss. Bill and his younger brother, Dave, visited their ailing mother in Pasadena on July 25. Kathryn died five days later when Bill was en route to Wichita with the Foresters. She was 94. “Bill wondered if he should fly home from Albuquerque,” Dave said. “I said, ‘Heck no. Bring back a national championship.’” Pintard’s success was recognized last Thursday when, after the Foresters defeated the San Diego Waves in an elimination game at Wichita, he was inducted into the NBC Hall of Fame. He’s in the same company with quite a list of baseball names, including Whitey Herzog, Ralph Houk, Billy Martin, Satchel Paige, Tom Seaver, Ozzie Smith, Tony Gwynn, Kirk Gibson, and Robin Ventura. Pintard’s wife, Kris, and younger daughter, Kelby, 14, showed up on the field for the induction announcement, which came as a surprise to him “He’s a celebrity in Wichita,” said Kris, who flies out for the World Series most years. If she didn’t attend his games, she wouldn’t see much of Bill during the summer. And she expects him to be ready to welcome a new crop of Foresters for the 2015 season. “I still have a fire in my belly,” Pintard said. “My wife is the offspring of Bill Bertka. What do we know about retiring?” Kris’s father, Bertka, who just turned 87, still works as a scout and consultant for the Los Angeles Lakers. Pintard is 67. “He can’t retire now,” Kris said. “He has a title to defend.”

We Are the Champions The Foresters Win Their Fifth National Baseball Congress Title

F

by John Zant

ive hours into their ride home from the 80th National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series in Wichita, Kansas, the Santa Barbara Foresters stopped for dinner along U.S. Highway 54 in the Oklahoma panhandle. Online reviews of the establishment were not kind: “Bad service, bad food & ugly joint.” … “I have never walked out of a restaurant until today.” “Those people were probably grumpy because they didn’t have a national championship trophy sitting in their bus,” Bill Pintard said. “Let me give you our review: ‘We are hungry, and it is food.’ ” It was just like Pintard to put a positive spin on the meal. He has been unfailingly upbeat during his 20 years as manager of the Foresters, a summertime baseball team for college-age players. They have won more than 800 games and qualified every year for the NBC World Series, where they have captured five championships since 2006. They need one more to tie the Fairbanks (Alaska) Goldpanners, who won six titles between 1972 and 2002, as the winningest team in Wichita. They worked overtime to secure their latest triumph last Saturday night against the Seattle Studs, the defending champions. The Foresters, twice facing one-run deficits, tied the score at 2-2 and won the title game in 12 innings, 3-2. So Pintard has another trophy to put on display next summer at UCSB’s Caesar Uyesaka Stadium, but the best thing he took away from the weeklong tournament was the memory of “the most incredible play I’ve ever seen. It will be etched in my mind forever.”

THE PLAY: During the tournament, the Foresters had

lost every pregame coin flip to determine the home team. From the ninth inning onward in the title game, they were on a high-wire without a net. Seattle had a potential winning run on second base with two outs in the bottom of the 10th. Relief pitcher Troy Cruz delivered a high fastball that slugger Bobby LeCount lined into center field. “I thought it was over,” Cruz said. “We lost.” Center fielder Jaylin Davis charged the ball. “C’mon, Jaylin!” urged Pintard, who had positioned the outfielders shallower than usual — a crucial strategic detail. “C’mon, Jaylin!” Davis fielded the ball and fired toward home plate as Seattle’s Connor Savage rounded third.

“I thought Jaylin’s throw was going to hit the back of the mound,” catcher A.J. Kennedy said. “But it came off the top, to the right of the plate. I wasn’t thinking about the score. Just make the play.” Kennedy lunged to his left and put the tag on Savage. “A.J. rolled over and showed the ump the ball,” Pintard said. “I observe the surroundings more as I enter the twilight of my run. The fans were all on their feet, roaring and pumping their fists and flailing their arms in the air. That play was Montana-to-Clark for the Foresters.” Kennedy said, “It didn’t hit me until I was in the dugout that we prevented a walk-off game.” Cruz had gone from despair to elation. He went back to the mound and finished off Seattle in the bottom of the 12th after Granger Studdard’s RBI double had given the Foresters their only lead of the game.

THE PLAYERS: They came to Santa Barbara in late May from all over the country, hand-picked by Pintard after checking them out with college coaches, with whom he had developed a mutual trust over the years. Lou Panizzon, who gave Pintard a coaching job at Carpinteria High several decades ago, compared his building of the Foresters to the methodology of Herb Brooks, coach of the storied 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, who said: “I’m not interested in getting the best players; I’m interested in getting the right players.” Panizzon observed, “Bill gets the right players and molds them into a team by the time they go to Kansas.” Gary Woods, a former major leaguer who has been on the Foresters’ coaching staff since 2006, said, “Bill’s overriding trait is that he really cares about his players. That influences them to rally around their teammates.” Dylan Axelrod, a pitcher for the 2006 Foresters, said many players see summer ball as a time “to goof off and make some artificial friends. But it was different for me on the Foresters. I still have friends from that team. That bond starts with Pinner. He brings excitement every day.” The 2014 Foresters — all but two of them new to the club — said much the same thing Monday when they arrived at the end of the 27-hour bus ride. It was the last time many of them will be together. “Every day was a joy,” said Kennedy, the catcher from Fullerton. “It was baseball and life lessons.”

Benchmark is much more concerned MORE with the latter folks, and the restauFOOD rant’s under-$10 burger stands as a SEE P. 70 sort of symbol to affordability. So how does Benchmark compare with Brophy’s, the Bennetts’ longtime flagship? “This menu is a little more chef-driven,” said Bennett, giving a nod to consulting chef Jason Banks. “It’s not primarily seafood but has a lot of vegetarian dishes. It’s a lot more broad. It’s more metropolitan and not so beachy. Still, it represents Santa Barbara pretty well.” So along with the carnitas tacos and grilled ahi, you have veggie sopes and a kale antipasto. One big similarity is that the location is perfectly designed for meeting new people, just like the everbuzzing Brophy’s. “The double-sided bar — that forces interaction. It’s a key feature in this industry,” Bennett explained. “A lot of people are lonely, so if you put together a venue that helps them catch eyes and feel by y George Yatchisin love, it makes a difference.” Keeping it simple, fun, and delicious, though never precious, is the Bennett mantra. “We know what we don’t do — we’re not finer dining — but we know what we are,” he explained, and that also means catering to families. “We don’t want to make money off your kids,” said Bennett, whose kids’ menu items are in the $5-$6 range. “Every manager here has kids, and there aren’t enough restaurants that serve that market. If they take one bite and throw it down, you don’t feel hurt in the pocket.” Dulling such parental pains is also attracting crowds for great people-watching and a wide variety made easy by the numerous craft beers on draft and an “interof food and drinks. esting enough but not über-trendy” cocktail list created by bar “It’s just like the art wall by Arna Bee,” said owner John Benmanager Randy Brown (formerly of El Encanto). nett during a recent conversation on his lively patio, where the “We’re kind of simple people, and to provide a quality serother tables dined happily on chicken wings. “I asked her to vice, you have to be present,” said Bennett. “We aim for an honcreate a wall where everyone could identify with something. est and simple product.

ANNUAL PARTY FOR S.B.’S PINOT PARADISE

rom the third promising harvest in a row to increasing international acclaim, Sta. Rita Hills winemakers have much to celebrate during the pinot-noir-dominant appellation’s annual Wine & Fire bash this weekend, but the bucolic stretch of rolling hills between Buellton and Lompoc — which was first designated as an American Viticultural Area, or AVA, by the federal government in 2001 — is also abuzz with politics. Last week, the feds began accepting public feedback on the controversial push to expand the wine-growing region’s borders a bit to the east, a move initiated by Pence Ranch that would also benefit part of the John Sebastiano Vineyard since fruit from the appellation fetches a higher price. For an update on this and more, I chatted with veteran winemaker Greg Brewer, who’s been involved with the Sta. Rita Hills for 23 years, most notably as co-owner for Brewer-Clifton and winemaker for Melville Vineyards. Here’s what he had to say, some of which will surely emerge on Saturday when Brewer joins Jake Lindley (see sidebar) and others for an informative panel discussion during Wine & Fire.

On the proposed appellation expansion: “A border is a border,” said Brewer, who helped start the movement to form an appellation in 1997. “Any movement of a boundary is a very slippery slope. I feel quite strongly that it needs to be respected, but I would never infer being outside is inferior in any way. It’s simply different.”

JENNY LEWIS THE VOYAGER

Ever since her days in Rilo Kiley, Jenny Lewis has had a way of speaking for her fellow females. There’s her voice, a bird-like thing with surprising heft that has the ability to hit you square in the heart. But Lewis’s biggest gun has always been her lyrics, which seem to get better with every album. On The Voyager, Lewis and producer bud Ryan Adams shave off some of the singer’s country twang, trading it in for a decade-spanning studio rock sound that fluidly moves between New Wave slick and early Fleet-

collaborator with a very impressive résumé. Her most recent album, We Are Alive, follows 2012’s Meklit & Quinn farther down the road toward an impossible-to-categorize but easyto-love amalgam of influences that range from Joan Armatrading and Tracy Chapman to Stevie Wonder, Ethiopian jazz, and Arcade Fire, just to name a few. For this concert, she will be appearing with her quartet and delivering a mellow, funky set suitable for the exquisite backdrop of an early summer’s

wood warmth. In a similar way, The Voyager’s songs fluctuate between heart-on-your-sleeve openness and a sly, tongue-in-cheek wit. At 38, Lewis is still tackling feelings of self-doubt, but here we find her evoking a newfound sure-footedness. Early on, she offers up “She’s Not Me,” a bluesy number about infidelity and insecurity that trance-channels Bonnie Raitt from the very first guitar pass. “When I look at myself, all I can see / I’m just another lady without a baby,” Lewis intones over a sing-songy hook for “Just One of the Guys.” Later, the album’s closing track pairs a swelling string arrangement with one of Lewis’s signature soaring choruses: “The Voyagers in every boy and girl / If you want to get to heaven get out of this world.” In that way,

evening on the great main lawn in Lotusland. When I spoke with Meklit by phone last week, the sheer range and volume of her activities left mee nearly speechless. She’s finishing up a stint as a senior fellow of the TED organization and travelingg to Brazil for the annual TED international conference this fall. In the meantime, in addition to playing gigs with her band to support her new album, she’s involved in several collaborative projects designed to advance the awareness of Ethiopian and Eritrean culture, and to promote understanding of hybridized 21st-century cultural identities. In early September, she will ignite Home (Away From) Home, a celebration of the Ethiopian and Eritrean New Year’s she has organized through the Yerba Buena Arts Center. This weekend-long festival combines music, dance, food, poetry, and even architecture to create connections among the members of the Ethiopian/Eritrean diaspora. She also has a composing commission for a project called “This Was Made Here” that explores the impact of Ethiopian golden age jazz on contemporary music. And last but certainly not least, Meklit will return to Santa Barbara on February 11, 2015, when the Nile Project comes to UCSB’s Campbell Hall, courtesy of UCSB Arts & Lectures. The Nile Project takes an approach that’s similar in some ways to what Yo-Yo Ma did with the Silk Road — it’s a point of departure for examining the many civilizations that line the great river. For Meklit, writing and performing songs is never simply an end in itself. She was a political science major at Yale, and she retains the critical eye and idealistic heart of a well-informed citizen of the world. She told me that she is “interested in music in a pure way, but also in the power of art to bring together new communities. People are such interesting creatures, and when you put them together in the context of a performance, they often end up surprising each other,” she said.“I love to be part of things that break open the unconscious boundaries that restrict the ways that we interact.” For tickets and information to Saturday’s event, call 969-3763 or visit lotusland.org.

COMPOSER CONDUCTS: Prolific British musician Thomas Adès was the maestro at Saturday’s Academy Festival Orchestra concert.

THIS IS THE MODERN WORLD Academy Festival Orchestra. At the Granada Theatre, Saturday, August 9. Reviewed by Charles Donelan

T

he final concert of the 2014 Music Academy of the West season brought one of the world’s most distinguished composers not only to the hall but also to the podium, as Thomas Adès conducted his own composition, Polaris, alongside a trio of works by 20th-century masters Charles Ives, Benjamin Britten, and Igor Stravinsky. Adès is no stranger to Santa Barbara or Stravinsky. In 2008, he and violinist Anthony Marwood appeared at the Lobero Theatre as part of CAMA’s Masterseries in an evening that re-created in its entirety a program played by Stravinsky himself (and violinist Samuel Dushkin) back in March 1937 — also at the Lobero and also presented by CAMA. On the present occasion, forgoing the piano for the role of conductor, Adès brought a similar blend of imagination and scholarly rigor to an orchestral program that centered on Petrushka, Stravinsky’s classic ballet of 1910-11. The program for this concert reflected the great musical distance traveled by this edition of the Academy Festival Orchestra over the course of the 2014 season. From the gorgeous Alpine sonorities of Richard Strauss to the pungent Americana bitonality of Charles Ives, and from the relatively chaste neoclassicism of Sergei Prokofiev to the highly colored orchestration of Stravinsky, these concerts, separated by only seven weeks, present a decided contrast. Yet there’s also plenty in common; the magnificent brass section we heard in June echoed again in August, this time with the strains of the familiar patriotic tune “America, the Beautiful,” as alchemized in 1891 by a Connecticut teenager named Charles Ives. Think multiple keys, castanets, and trombones. Following the relatively short work by Ives, Britten’s Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes Op. 33a (1945) introduced an oceanic feeling that would be taken up again later in both the Adès and, to a lesser extent, the Stravinsky works, while still retaining a connection to the small-town worldview of Ives’s fantasy of band music. The Britten piece soared without ever slipping into sentimentality or cliché. Polaris, which premiered in 2010, was a revelation. Using canon form to repeat a single, quite simple musical phrase in a dazzling panoply of incarnations, the piece built steadily from an almost minimalist percussive opening to a series of three monumental, brass-assisted climaxes. The tuba player was the sole member of the brass section who remained onstage, as the trumpets and trombones fanned out to positions in the upper and lower boxes that flank the Granada stage. Composed amid the creative ferment that became The Rite of Spring, Petrushka finds Stravinsky in the grip of another of his intense visions of contemporary life pictured in terms of Russian folklore. The story of how the puppet Petrushka becomes human, discovers love with a ballerina, suffers from jealousy, and then dies on the sword of his rival gave the composer multiple points of departure for some of his most adventurous music. Petrushka contains a great deal of extremely expressive writing for the piano, the instrument representing the irrepressible spirit of the title character, which the composer imagined “exasperating the patience of the orchestra with diabolical cascades of arpeggios.” The orchestra answers back with great volleys from the trumpets, with the section led in this performance by principal musician Anthony Bellino. Petrushka made a brilliant finale to what has been a historic season for the Music Academy of the West, one in which modern music has truly come into ■ its own.

AN EARNEST MOMENT: The Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre’s 2013 production of The Importance of Being Earnest garnered an Indy Award for director Miller James.

LAST ROUNDUP CIRCLE BAR B DINNER THEATRE TO CLOSE AT END OF SEASON

away. We’ve always done great family-style theater, and, one way or another, we will continue to do so.”

by Charles Donelan

On the impact: “Obviously it is hard, but Susie and David have a great attitude about it, which is not to look at it as a defeat. I quickly came to an acceptance of it just because that’s the best stance from which to move forward.”

T

he news hit the Santa Barbara theater community hard. After 44 years (!) as the area’s only true dinner theater, the owners of the Circle Bar B Ranch made the decision to take the barn in a different direction at the end of the 2014 season. Veteran producers Susie and David Couch were out. Weddings and other events would be moving in. But true to their heritage in the country’s most grassroots form of theater, the couple refused to see this in a negative light. Sure, they were disappointed, and no, they did not have an alternative venue already arranged for 2015, but Susie and David are optimistic, and above all, not bitter about the decision, which they recognize is not personal and well within the rights of any property owner in this volatile economy. In recognition of the unique role that the Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre has played in the Santa Barbara theater community’s ecology, it seemed appropriate to let the participants in this extraordinary institution speak out. What follows are some of the highlights from a series of conversations I’ve had over the past few days with some of the people closest to the organization. We hope that, over the next few weeks, more voices will be heard through our online comments section (independent.com/lastroundup), recalling the many great nights in the barn.

Susie Couch, producer, director, actor

On the news: “Initially, we were taken by surprise when the word came that we would have to move, but that was at least better than not knowing what was happening.”

On the future: “We are not done with theater, and if the right venue becomes available, we will continue. It will not necessarily involve serving dinner. We have a solid base of season ticket subscribers who will follow us if we can find the right fit.”

On the impact: “I really want to get to the positive in this right

Brian Harwell, actor, director

On Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre’s role in the S.B. theater scene: “The

ecology of the whole scene is definitely the right framework to look at this because, while there are other theaters in town with different pressures and different audiences, the Circle Bar B experience has existed at a distance from all of that and yet remained really important to it. Irwin Appel [theater professor at UCSB] said to me that CBBDT has ‘been a real playground for you,’ meaning all of us, and he’s right. The freedom I had there to cast someone who had captured my attention, or to just roll up my sleeves and focus on the process of directing or acting, this was incredibly useful to me in my development as an artist. It is so important to work at least part of the year in a place where you have a mixed audience and where you have to win them over again every night. It is as simple as that. And because in a typical seven-week run, you performed the show 21 times, there were good nights and bad nights, and you learned from both.”

there singing! After a while, I grew to resent it less, and gradually I understood that this wasn’t just Susie reading a list, but instead it was a family feeling — like the speeches at a big Thanksgiving.”

Kathy Marden

On the impact: “It’s the end of an era. I arrived during the first

year of the Couches, in 2004. Susie gave me an opportunity that I could not have gotten anywhere else. It was amazing to watch them develop over the next decade. Directors and actors were learning their craft there, and the whole time, Susie was making the costumes and taking the tickets, and David was in the booth. That’s a family operation.”

On the contribution to the community: “They gave so many young

actors from SBCC and UCSB their first chance to do something outside of school. And the long runs! Having six or seven weeks to explore a character is an incredible luxury if you are used to doing shows for just two or three weeks. You get to be in character in front of a variety of different audiences. Some nights you wonder to yourself, ‘Are they alive?’ But other nights they’re on fire. Overall, it’s a great audience because so many of the people are not theater buffs but just regular people who happen to be staying there.”

On the warm-ups: “I will admit that I did warn my more sophis-

ticated, theater-savvy friends about the curtain speeches. I was embarrassed, but I understood that this was a tradition handed down by Janet Caballero and that Susie and David felt obliged to continue it. What was funny was that one night, when Susie was in the show, I remember she was backstage instead, and David was doing the curtain speech, and she was just as impatient. She was wondering, ‘What the hell is he going on about?’”

On the programming at Circle Bar B: “The repertoire there is often

On the personal side: “It was a great training ground for me. Joy

On the way that Susie and David Couch warm up the crowd with birthday and anniversary announcements: “The curtain speeches

The show does indeed go on, at least until the end of this season, so there is still plenty of time to get one last delicious tri-tip dinner in with a memorable experience and a great play.

light comedy or farce, but what people don’t always appreciate is that light comedy is the hardest of all things to play. Farce has to be incredibly precise, otherwise it doesn’t land well. It’s a workout to act in one of these shows. On the nights it doesn’t go well, you can feel the wavers — those wobbly places where the audience isn’t with you. But on several nights in each run, we would be flying. Some nights, it’s a real party in that barn. People who didn’t know what they were getting into get really into it, and that’s something you won’t find as often at a ‘normal’ theater.”

is the best word I can use to describe it. It was a place to see old friends and to be in the creative process together. Then to share that not only with the theater crowd but also with the people who happened to be staying there — that was something special. You can’t get that in an ordinary theater. Having people in the audience who really don’t know what to expect? That is delightful.”

UNDER THE SEA: Proximity Theatre Company crafted a liberal reworking of The Little Mermaid for its recent production, Mermaid’s Tale.

F

or a play to work, it is typically essential for it to know what it wants to be. Whether it’s a comedy, tragedy, drama, performance piece, or a mixture of the lot, it’s tough for a production to affect an audience if the director and cast do not have a clear sense of identity. Proximity Theatre Company’s Mermaid’s Tale, which just finished a one-weekend run at the New Vic, is a play that sadly seemed to be having an identity crisis and ended up stuck somewhere in between a movement-based drama and a screwball comedy. Mixing these two genres would not be impossible, but the production made no visible effort to do so, and instead the audience was left with a completely disjointed and confusing performance. The biggest problem of Mermaid’s Tale was the plot, though calling this random collection of scenes a plot seems almost insulting to the art of storytelling. The script openly borrowed heavily from The Little Mermaid, which is not a problem, except it did nothing new or imaginative with the story that everyone already knows. There was also a subplot about the filming of an intentionally cheesy science-fictional B movie called The Evil Ocean, but the purpose of this seemed to be mainly to fill up time. The rapid change from wacky comedy to melodramatic dance numbers felt entirely misguided, and even bringing the two plots together did nothing to help them feel less disconnected. Overall, the story was an absolute mess that lacked most of the essential ingredients to make a story compelling, or even cohesive. It was hard to really judge the acting in the show, as the entire cast seemed to suffer due to a lack of any real direction or motivation. In fact, it was only during the Evil Ocean scenes that any of the actors seemed to show actual signs of acting or performing. Apparently choreographing completely random and out-of-place dance numbers to Britney Spears’s “Toxic” and Ylvis’s “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” was more important than developing basic character motivation. There were occasional moments of humor, but those moments were spaced out in between long stretches of muddled, poorly paced scenes that rarely accomplished anything. The entire production of Mermaid’s Tale felt unfocused; with each new scene, the production seemed to have some additional idea about what it wanted to do or where it wanted to go, resulting in a classic case of a script that bit off more than its company could chew. Mermaid’s Tale could have been an interesting blend of seemingly unrelated ideas and styles, but a failure to create a clear vision left this production feeling like little more than a bizarre disappointment.

STORM WARNING

N

ew York City famously offers Shakespeare in the Park every summer, so why shouldn’t Santa Barbara have Shakespeare COMES TO on the Beach? For those of us who can’t get enough of the bard, the logic here is faultless, and the appeal of the idea multiplies rapidly when you factor in the involvement of UpStage Left by Charles Donelan (USL), the company that’s producing this “let’s hope it becomes a new tradition” production of The Tempest. UpStage Left takes the top talent from our area high schools, mixes them with some recent grads who are back from college, and turns the whole thing up into what they are hash tagging as a #HOTMAGICSUMMER. So far, one USL show has already gone up — the uproarious version of Aristophanes’s Lysistrata codirected by Emma and Cheri Steinkellner and produced in Godric Grove at Elings Park. Now it’s big sister’s turn at the helm, and with Kit Steinkellner directing, this theatrical ship is heading for heavy dramatic weather. You know it’s a cliché that Shakespeare was ahead of his time, but there’s a reason for that. In The Tempest, Steinkellner feels, he’s most ahead of the curve when it comes to describing power plays. “The struggle for power and status,” she remarked,“that’s the formula for practically every great cable show currently on air, from Orange Is the New Black to Veep.” Who has the power? These days it seems that that is the question. Apart from the power struggles, there are many other things about The Tempest that Steinkellner loves, from the great poetry to “some beautiful, amazing moments of intense reaction, like when Miranda sees other human beings for the first time, or when Ferdinand sees that his father, Alonso, is still alive after the shipwreck.” She refers to these moments as the play’s “human magic,” as distinguished from the supernatural magic of Prospero. Of course there is plenty of that in the play, as well. In fact, one thing that came out in the rehearsals for this production was that Jordan Lemmond, who will play Prospero, is a stage magician. “I like to use everything that comes at me through the rehearsal process,” Steinkellner explained, and as a result, the show will include several illusions that Lemmond has been practicing. With a minimum of props and no set except the sea and the sand,“blocking must tell the story.” The object, according to the director, is to arrive at something that is at once visually spectacular and emotionally resonant. “It’s a play about justifying the unjustifiable,” said Steinkellner,“and that’s got to come through at every level.” Choreographer Jessica Hambright, another familiar figure from many Santa Barbara shows, will assist in designing the movement, which Steinkellner describes with gusto. “Caliban will be played by Malcolm McCarthy, and he’s discovered a way of moving that he and Jess call ‘the atrophied ape.’ Ariel, we decided, should move between seconds, like some kind of quantum-physics phenomenon.” At 70 minutes, this pared-down production should fly by, and with the curtain scheduled for 6 p.m., it’s sure to be a stunning tableau, as the actors will perform in front of the sea and the sunset. Spectators are requested to purchase their tickets in advance through the company’s website. They also recommend that the audience bring their own low beach chairs or towels and plan to position the towel rows down front and the beach chairs behind. Check it out, enjoy the sensation of sand between your toes as the sun goes down, and look forward to many more nights of Shakespeare on the Beach.

BACK TO THEIR ROOTS

G

ood things come to those who wait, but they also come to those who work. Take, for example, Rebelution. Born on the beer-swilling streets of Isla Vista in the early ’00s, the band pushed hard to become the go-to keg-side entertainment for their classmates. And once they did, it was quickly on to bigger and better things. Since graduation, the foursome has conquered national tours, radio airwaves, and huge music festivals with their laidback reggae grooving and melodic rock guitars. They’ve also earned themselves a strong and unified hometown following, one that will surely be showing up in full force when the band returns to headline the Santa Barbara Bowl on Friday, August by Aly Comingore 15. The show comes on the heels of Rebelution’s latest album, Count Me In, a sweet, soulful, and positive-vibe-filled collection that the band recorded and self-produced late last year. In anticipation of the guys’ big  reunion, we phoned up frontman Eric Rachmany to talk music, touring, and his personal reggae roots.

REBELUTION RETURNS HOME TO HEADLINE THE BOWL

I want to ask you about the new album. Did you guys approach this one differently? Not really. We just keep doing what we’re doing. Everything we wrote

on our own. We chose who we wanted to work with. We got in the studio with our live engineer, Errol Brown, who’s been around for years and years and years. He was Bob Marley’s sound engineer, and he pretty much recorded every reggae artist you can think of. He’s kind of a legend, and just having his vibe in the studio really added to the experience. We recorded it ourselves; we were there for the mixing and the mastering—we were a part of the whole thing. It felt good. It felt like family.

Looking back on college, did you ever imagine that you’d still be playing music 10 years later? You know, honestly, we didn’t even think about it. We were just

playing for the fun of it. And Isla Vista was the perfect place to get started— people would just set up stages, and there were so many people just walking around on Fridays and Saturdays. It’s kind of a bummer that they don’t allow [amplified] music anymore, because we owe a lot to that community. People spread the word about us, and we became this kind of hit band in I.V. It was such a fun experience.

What drew you to reggae music at the start? It started when I saw Don Carlos

in San Francisco. I’m from the Bay Area, and that was my first reggae show when I was still in high school. I thought it was amazing, and I went home and just started researching as much as I could about roots reggae and dancehall and everything else in between. … We got to tour with him and Slightly Stoopid not that long ago, so I had a chance to hang out with him every day. There’s actually a song on the new album with him called “Roots Reggae,” and it’s kind of a dedication to roots music.

Do you feel like your motivation for making music has changed as you’ve gotten older? No, not at all. I truly love being

@sbindependent #sbindy #sceneinsb

onstage. That’s the best part of touring, the best part of being in a band. It’s just all about performing and supporting music, and that’s all we have really done for the past 10 years. It’s awesome. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

KINGScaption tktk: OF HEARTS: L.A.’s Bad Suns are riding high on the success of their hit single, “Cardiac Arrest.”

GOOD NEWS FOR BAD SUNS

S

uccess is not something easily quantified — especially in the music industry. But for the four young twentysomethings of Bad Suns, there’s no denying they’ve had a landmark year. In June, the budding indie rockers released their full-length debut, Language & Perspective, via Zane Lowe’s Vagrant by Aly Comingore Records. Since then, it’s been full steam ahead: packed schedules, national tours, and festival dates with rock ’n’ roll luminaries like The Black Keys, The Flaming Lips, and Queens of the Stone Age. Before the summer comes to a close, frontman Christo Bowman and bandmates Miles Morris, Gavin Bennett, and Ray Libby will embark on a statewide headlining tour in support of Language & Perspective. The band lands at Velvet Jones on Friday, August 15, with tour mates Kiev. Below, we catch up with Bowman on a rare day off in Portland, Oregon, to talk about the band’s early days, recent leaps, and next steps.

L.A. BAND HAS NEW ALBUM, MILESTONE YEAR

Makua Rothman

ozomatli

Starting from the beginning, how did you guys all meet? Me and Gavin had

class together on the first day of 7th grade and we just decided we were going to be friends, but we didn’t start playing music together for another three years after that. Then Ray I met through the Cobalt Café — we had friends in bands we all knew, but we didn’t know each other, and then when we were looking for a guitar player, he kind of offered himself up. And then Miles and I met in the middle of all that. We were hired guns for this other thing and immediately hit it off and started leading the charge on what we wanted to do.

Were there music, artists, or albums that you guys originally bonded over?

Yeah. I grew up with my dad showing me bands like Elvis Costello, The Smiths, The Cure, Tears for Fears, U, Depeche Mode. That was the kind of stuff I always enjoyed, but I didn’t know how to make music like that. I started playing when I was 10 years old, so it was easy to turn to bands like Green Day, which were just power chords, drums, and bass. As I grew older, that stuff that my dad showed me started appealing to me more, though, and through falling in love with that music and having four musicians to play with, it kind of started coming together. I still love Green Day, though.

TRANSFORM YOUR BODY IN 9 WEEKS!

Where does the title of the record derive from? It comes from a lyric in the first

song on the album, “Matthew James.” I think the idea was taking what you’re given and deciding what to do with it.You’re born into this world with language — the cell phone, the Internet was always there, English was the language taught to me. But perspective is about what you decide to do with it and how you use it.

You guys are well on your way to closing out a pretty huge year. Has there been a moment of pinching yourself and thinking, ‘Is this really happening?’ yet? There are a lot of moments that come to mind, but, you know, a lot of bands work to reach a certain point —“I want to sign a record deal” or “I want to be on the radio.” With us, I think we reach one goal and we want to move on to the next. There’s always something more to do in my eyes. But I’ve been really proud of the choices we made. And holding the album in my hands for the first time — that felt pretty good.

CARP’S SHRED FACTOR: We all know the surf community is thriving in

a lineup I’ve long considered to be one of the must-see bills of the season. On Friday, August 15, L.A.’s Heathers bring their post-punk “guitar pop miserablism” to Isla Vista with support from Girpool, Growth, and Blossom. If the name weren’t enough to clue you in, Heathers’ bopping guitar jams feel like they were born to soundtrack a John Hughes film. Their hooky catch is a sound that’s equal parts fuzzy minimalism and soaring melodies, perfectly complemented by frontman Michael Francis’s caustically sweet poetic warblings. This is ’80s worship the way I like to hear it: skuzzy, sarcastic, and directly descended from The Birthday Party’s school of rock. The show starts at 8 p.m. and is open to all ages. Visit sbdiy.org for info.

LOUD & FAST: Looking down the road a ways, Wednesday, August 20, Matador Records’ Fucked Up plugs in at The Garage in Ventura for a night of music

that is sure to be ear-bleedingly good. The critically lauded hardcore act from Toronto pens bright, crunchy guitar music that moves fast and furious, driven home by frontman Damian Abraham’s raspy, guttural scream-chants. In short, it’s exactly the kind of controlled chaos you’d want to see shake down from within the walls of your neighborhood dive bar, ice cold beer in hand. Tijuana Panthers open the 21+ show, which starts at 8 p.m. at The Garage (1091 Scandia Ave., Ventura). Call 814-2234 or visit ticketweb.com for tickets and info. ■

Carpinteria, California, but what about those other shredders? Turns out our neighbors to the south are experiencing a rock revival of sorts, and we’re already calling dibs on first-generation fan status. According to last week’s cover story (and a good deal of freewheeling investigative journo-ing by our own Ethan Stewart), Carpinteria music makers are not only alive and well but also spawning the type of house-party-heavy scene and cross-band collaboration that only happens when a real movement is afoot. Tonight, we’re blowing the doors open on the whole scene with our first-ever Indy Live concert, featuring three of Carpinteria’s finest ensembles: Pacific Haze, Pleasure, and Afinshnsea the Moon. For those who have yet to stumble into one of these bands’ many sanctioned and unsanctioned live shows, allow me to break it down. Pacific Haze is the youngest of the lot, spawned in the wake of former S.B. folk orchestra Sprout. In their latest incarnation, the band has shed their cutesy and Edward Sharpe– leaning tendencies for a sound that’s part Doors-indebted psychedelic noodling, part soulful, Allman Brothers–style Americana. Pleasure’s contribution is something undeniably heavier; think charging guitars, head-bang-worthy bridges, and a solid helping of thoroughly trippy — but melodic — hard rock. On the other end of the spectrum, Afinshnsea the Moon’s boisterous take on psych rock is at once soulful and toe-tapping, calling to mind a funk-tinged take on the Entrance Band’s blend of ethereal ambiance and bubbling guitar noise. Catch all three bands rip live tonight at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) at 8 p.m. The show is open to all rock fans 18 and older.

or The Hundred-Foot Journey, director Lasse Hallström (of Chocolat fame) once again employs topdrawer talent and close-up shots of meal preparation to tell a story about how food changes people’s lives. In his latest endeavor, Hallström follows the Kadams, an Indian family that seeks asylum in Europe after their matriarch is murdered in a political uprising in their hometown of Mumbai. The Kadams settle in the French village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, as the patriarch of the family (Om Puri) insists that this is where his children’s mother wished them to rebuild the restaurant they ran in India. The Kadams have the misfortune of opening their restaurant, Maison Mumbai, right across the road from Le Saule Pleureur, a classical French eatery with a Michelin star that is widely agreed to be the best restaurant in 50 miles, run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), who does not take kindly to the competition a hundred feet across the way. But Papa Kadam comes equipped with a secret weapon: his son Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal), a young prodigy of a chef with the power to win over every taste bud with his Midas-like culinary touch. It doesn’t take long for Madame Mallory to discover that the most promising young chef in France works just across the street for the competition. The cultural clash the trailer promises soon gives way to the story of a young man struggling to discover who he is

and where he belongs. Sadly, it’s also here that the film lost me. Well, it didn’t completely lose me — start to finish, The Hundred-Foot Journey is about as pleasant as films come. There was never a moment where I wasn’t happy to be in the theater. But this film’s strength is in its exploration of its fish-out-of-water family, and it’s no fun when your fish finds an ocean with forty-five minutes of film left to go. Journey shies away from high stakes and meaningful consequences and almost always chooses pleasant over painful, ultimately making for a film that isn’t as good as it should have been.

NEW, NOT IMPROVED

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and William Fichtner star in a film written by Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, and Evan Daugherty and directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

TURTLE POWER OUTAGE: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles slaps a fresh coat of CGI on ach new revamping of the Leonardo and the rest of the Heroes in a Half Shell for this uninspired reboot. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles makes them seem more bizarre by explaining them better. This version has Megan Fox as could be that the director didn’t care to make the movie April O’Neil, the newscaster who ends up being the above- any more fun than its script provided. Not enough of this ground eyes and ears to the sewer-dwelling superheroes, Turtles feels new, except one witty elevator scene. There’s so of course the temptation to bind her fate to Michelan- a chase scene in the snow, though it doesn’t seem to be gelo, Donatello, Raphael, and Leonardo overwhelmed the winter in other parts of the film. Too many pieces of this puzzle have been stolen from screenwriters. In this version, April is a sort of godmother to the boys, er, terrapins. You have to see it to understand. the much-better Spider-Man films, from origin story to the Well, maybe you don’t. This time, the action scenes have potential apocalypse. Grown-ups in the room won’t enjoy become murky, rapid, and close-shot as to minimize their much, and kids deserve more than a slightly modified plot spectacle impact, not to mention the fun factor. Normally, rehash with CGI replacing the old Jim Henson rubber this would be an easy comparison to Michael Bay’s thriller suits, which, conversely, seemed more bizarre but made aesthetic, and sure enough, he produced the film, but it more sense.

Maybe it isn’t as good as Twister, but Into the Storm has enough thrills to make you forget its many contrivances. Enjoy the mayhem, it says. Perhaps even experience a small tug of suspense, too. The story takes us to the little bad-luck town of Silverton, Oklahoma, where a motherless family prepares for graduation. Meanwhile, the father (Richard Armitage), the vice principal at the soon-to-be-roofless school, maintains emotional distance from his sons, who seem to be majoring in movie nerd. There’s also nine tornados waiting in the offing, the final of which, according to a hot climatologist (Sarah Wayne Callies from The Walking Dead), is the biggest tornado anyone has ever seen. There’s even an attempt to subplot the film for crosscutting purposes: one romantic and the other foolish. It’s positively Shakespearean in that respect. The integration of special effects and rural community scenery is seamless, though there is a lame pretense at framing this as a “found footage” film. (You can tell they didn’t think it through — usually the technique implies that everyone who made the movie died.) Director Steven Quale is a veteran of James Cameron’s school of blockbuster cinematography. Like Cameron, however, this film is built more on melodramatic circumstances and spectacle than anything like character. Twister had Philip Seymour Hoffman in a bit part. This one has Matt

Walsh, an unknown actor who rides up inside a tank to the top of the tornado and falls screaming. It’s the simple pleasures, after all.

(165 mins.; R: language including sexual references, teen drug and alcohol use)

Richard Linklater writes and directs this story about a young boy named Mason as he grows from age 5 to 18. Here’s a sound not made in America enough: existence discussed with a reasoning skeptical voice. Linklater’s latest is moving but not melodramatic. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

✯ Chef (115 mins.; R: language, some suggestive references) Jon (Swingers) Favreau writes, directs, and stars in this story about a chef who loses his restaurant job and starts up a food truck as a way to reunite his estranged family.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman (92 mins.; PG: some mild action, brief rude humor)

Inventor, scientist, and adventurer Mr. Peabody travels back in time with his adopted boy to fix a rift in time.

Screens as part of the Summer Kids Series. (DJP)

Tue., Aug. 19, 10am, Paseo Nuevo

(121 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, some language)

Somewhere in deep space, an American pilot finds himself the object of a manhunt after he steals an orb coveted by a villainous extraterrestrial. Mostly, it’s a parade of outer-space spectacles, but the story also includes nonstop action and jokes that transplant American pop culture into deep space. (DJP)

Arlington (2D)/Camino Real (2D)/ Metro 4 (2D and 3D)

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

✯ A Most Wanted Man (121 mins.; R: language)

A Chechen Muslim (Philip Seymour Hoffman) illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he is caught in the middle of the war on terror. Hoffman is a shining star here, elevating the film, but he’s not the only one; all the women are terrific, too. But it’s Hoffman everybody wants to see more of, a most wanted man who never can surprise us anymore. (DJP)

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF AUGUST ď›œď˜ź ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Researchers in Peru have recently tracked down many previously unknown varieties of wild cacao plants. What that means is that there are exotic kinds of chocolate that you and I have never dreamed of, and they will be commercially available within a few years. As delicious as your Chocolove XOXOX Extra Strong Dark candy bar may taste to you now, you will eventually journey further into a new frontier of ecstatic delectability. I propose that we use this theme as a metaphor for the work you have ahead of you right now. It is time for you to make good things even better — to take fun diversions and transform them into experiences that engender transcendent bliss. Turn “yes� into “YESSSS!!!!�

(June 21 - July 22): A New York doctor oers a service he calls Pokertox. Jack Berdy injects Botox into poker players’ faces so as to make their expressions hard to read. With their facial muscles paralyzed, they are in no danger of betraying subtle emotional signals that might help their opponents guess their strategy. I understand there might sometimes be value in adopting a poker face when you are in the midst of trying to win at poker or other games. But for the foreseeable future, Cancerian, I recommend the opposite approach. You’re most likely to be successful if you reveal everything you’re feeling. Let your face and eyes be as eloquent as they can be.

TAURUS

(July 23 - Aug. 22): When we are launching any big project, our minds hide from us the full truth about how diďŹƒcult it will be. If we knew beforehand all of the tests we would eventually face, we might never attempt it. Economist Albert O. Hirschman called this the principle of the “hiding hand.â€? It frees us to dive innocently into challenging work that will probably take longer than we thought and compel us to access new resources and creativity. To be clear: What’s hidden from us are not only the obstacles but also the unexpected assistance we will get along the way.

(Apr. 20 - May 20): At your next meal, imagine that the food you are eating is ďŹ lled with special nutrients that enhance your courage. During the meal after that, fantasize that you are ingesting ingredients that will boost your perceptiveness. The next time you snack, visualize your food as being infused with elements that will augment the amount of trust you have in yourself. Then you will be ready to carry out your assignment for the coming weeks: Use your imagination to pump up your courage and perceptiveness as you carry out smart adventures that you haven’t trusted yourself enough to try before now.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): The leaves and berries of the deadly nightshade plant are highly poisonous. If ingested, they cause delirium and death. On the other hand, a drug obtained from the same plant is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. It’s helpful in treating many illnesses, from gastrointestinal and heart problems to Parkinson’s. Is there a metaphorical equivalent in your life, Gemini? An inuence that can either be sickening or healing, depending on various factors? I suspect that now is one of those times when you should be very focused on ensuring that the healing eect predominates.

LEO

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): The literal meaning of the Swedish word smultronställe is “wild strawberry patch.â€? Metaphorically, it refers to a special place that feels like your private sanctuary. It may be hard to ďŹ nd or unappreciated by others, but for you it’s a spot that inspires you to relax deeply. You might have had a life-changing epiphany there. When you’re in this refuge, you have a taste of what it’s like to feel at home in the world. Do you have a smultronställe, Virgo? If not, it’s time to ďŹ nd one. If you already do, spend extra time there in the coming week.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): If I’m reading the astrological omens correctly, the bells are about to ring for you. The festive lights will ash. The celebratory anthems will

able after being broken. The wounds and the healing of the wounds are integral parts of the story, not shameful distortions to be disguised or hidden. Does any of that resonate with you about your current experience, Capricorn? I’m guessing it does. Let’s call this the kintsukuroi phase of your cycle.

throb. It’s like you’re going to win a fortune on a TV quiz show; like you will get an A+ on your ďŹ nal exam; like you’ll be picked as homecoming king or queen. But it’s possible I’m a bit o in my projections, and your success will be subtler than I anticipate. Maybe, in fact, you are about to accomplish the Healing of the Year, or discover the Secret of the Decade, or enjoy the Most Meaningful Orgasm of the Century.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Near the end of his career, the painter Henri Matisse created a paper-cut composition he called “Le Bateau,â€? or “The Boat.â€? It is an abstract piece that does not depict a literal boat. That’s why the Museum of Modern Art in New York should perhaps be forgiven for mistakenly hanging it upside-down back in 1961, upon ďŹ rst acquiring the piece. Fortunately, after a month and a half, a knowledgeable person noticed, and the position of “Le Bateauâ€? was corrected. I’m wondering if there’s a comparable phenomenon going on with you right now, Aquarius. Is it possible that a part of your life got inverted or transposed? If so, will you be sharp enough to see the goof and brave enough to ďŹ x it? I hope you won’t allow this error to persist.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): A teenage Pakistani boy decided he wanted to help his country’s government clean up the local Internet. Ghazi Muhammad Abdullah gathered a list of over 780,000 porn sites and sent it to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority. Big job! Hard work! I would love to see you summon similar levels of passion and diligence as you work in behalf of your favorite cause, Scorpio. The coming weeks will be prime time for you to get very excited about the changes you would like to help create in the world.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Working as a journalist for the Papua New Guinea Post-Courier, Simon Eroro wanted to interview a group of indigenous rebels in a remote jungle. He decided he was willing to do whatever was necessary to get the big scoop. After making a diďŹƒcult journey through rough terrain to reach them, he was told he would be given the information that he sought on one condition: that he be circumcised with bamboo sticks as part of a cleansing ritual. Eroro agreed to the procedure, got the story, and ultimately won a prize for his report. I don’t recommend that you go quite that far in pursuit of your current goal, Sagittarius. On the other hand, it might be wise for you to consider making a sacriďŹ ce.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): “I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice,� said British author G.K. Chesterton, “and then going away and doing the exact opposite.� I’m going to endorse that approach for you, Pisces. In my astrological opinion, I don’t think anyone can possibly give you accurate counsel in the coming weeks. Your circumstances are too unique and your dilemmas are too idiosyncratic for even the experts to understand, let alone the people who care for you and think they own a piece of you. I do suspect it might be useful for you to hear what everyone has to say about your situation, though. Seeing their mistaken or uninformed perspectives should help you get clarity about what’s right.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Kintsukuroi is a Japanese word that literally means “golden repair.â€? It refers to the practice of ďŹ xing cracked pottery with lacquer that’s blended with actual gold or silver. Metaphorically, it suggests that something may become more beautiful and valu-

Beer of the Week Firestone-Walker Oaktoberfest: For nearly a decade, Firestone’s annual German‑ inspired “Paso Märzen Bier” used to be only available on seasonal taps, but this year, the Central Coast‑based brewery started releasing six‑ packs of the golden orange‑tinted lager — which blends Hallertau Tradition hopes with Vienna and Pilsner malts — on August 1. The beer is both flavorful, with smoked fruit and slight honey notes, yet easy‑drinking and crisp, like a late summer lager should be. It’ll be thrown in oak barrels and tapped en masse for the Madonna Inn’s annual Oktoberfest on October 11, but ready for cracking at your liquor store today. See firestonebeer.com.
