hile authorities continue investigating the cause of the Sherpa Fire, firefighting crews aimed to fully contain the roughly 8,000-acre wildfire on Thursday, June 23, eight days after it started on private property near the top of Refugio Road. As of noon on June 22, the United States Forest Service — the fire’s lead agency — reported 270 threatened structures, one destroyed structure, and nine injuries, none of them serious and most due to heat-related stress and dehydration. Authorities have lifted mandatory evacuations for Venadito, Destiladera, and Las Flores canyons. Refugio and El Capitan canyons are scheduled to reopen on June 25, along with Refugio State Beach. El Capitan State Beach will remain closed at least through July 15, having lost its water-treatment plant to the blaze. As firefighters achieved 89 percent containment on June 22, ground crews continued to mop up remaining hotspots as personnel and resources shifted their coordinated attack to several new wildfires that have erupted in Southern California since last weekend’s recordbreaking heat wave. At its peak, 2,178 personnel were assigned to the Sherpa Fire, including 61 hand crews and 129 engines, 14 bulldozers, 17 helicopters, and 10 airplanes. “The mutual aid system [for fighting wildfires] in California is a model for the rest of the country,” said Captain Dave Zaniboni, a public information officer with Santa Barbara County Fire Department.“We test it and put it to practice every year.” “This is the first game of the season, so to speak,” added Mike Eliason, a County Fire photographer and spokesperson.“And this response has been a testament on how well the system works.” 8

On June 22, the official estimate on the cost of the firefighting effort had reached $15.8 million.

T

he emergency call came in at 3:29 p.m. on June 15, setting into motion County Fire’s standard response for any brush fire during high fire season: four engines, one water tender, two bulldozers, a pair of 12-man hand crews, a battalion chief, one helicopter, two air tankers, and one lead pilot plane to coordinate an air attack. “We get a call for a vegetation fire, and you get all that, immediately,” said Amber Anderson, a fire inspector with the City of Santa Barbara. “No matter what.” Just after 4 p.m., county crews and a Forest Service response team reached the area known as Rancho La Scherpa. (The official name of the fire was misspelled, without the “c,” but left alone to avoid confusion during response, and will remain as is.) More support was called in, and for several hours before dark that first day, Forest Service pilot Mark Nunez, high above the rest, choreographed an attack troop of eight tankers and four smaller aircraft. On the ground, mandatory evacuations were called for nearby residents and more than a thousand campers at Refugio and El Capitan state beaches, and two nearby private campgrounds packed up and fled the approaching wall of flames. Dozens of horses from various ranches were trailered to Earl Warren Showgrounds. As darkness fell, the sundowners picked up. For the next 12 hours, sustained wind speed near the top of Refugio Canyon never dropped below 30 mph as gusts surged to 49. The fire spread south and east rapidly through densely vegetated and mostly roadless steep terrain, forccont’d page 13  ing the California Highway Patrol to shut down

Kyle Barbre (pictured), 21, was arrested 6/21 on suspicion of killing his 1-year-old Chihuahua named Floyd on May 23. About a month before Floyd died, he had been adopted from Santa Barbara County Animal Services. The same day Barbre allegedly fatally injured the Chihuahua, an Animal Rescue Team member learned of the incident and called 9-1-1, prompting a Sheriff’s Office investigation. Barbre, who was taken into custody at his workplace, was booked into County Jail on $100,000 bail. A search of Rocky Nook Park on 6/16 yielded six arrests, two guns, and two small bags of cocaine. Three Santa Barbara residents — Alicia Visueta, 22; Anissa Arzate, 20; and Adrian Manriquez, 18 — were booked into County Jail after authorities found a loaded .22 caliber revolver, a .380 semiautomatic, and 91 rounds of .22 ammunition stashed in the park’s restroom. Anthony Lopez, 24, of Oxnard and two 17-year-old juveniles were similarly arrested. All suspects face gang enhancements. Suffering from heat exhaustion, a 14-yearold boy was rescued on 6/18 from Rattlesnake Trail. Just before noon, an offduty nurse called 9-1-1 after she spotted him about one mile above the trailhead near Skofield Park. Hiking into the dehydrated teen’s location, Santa Barbara County’s Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team and firefighters cooled him and carried him to safety on a stretcher.

Cold Case Cracked

Santa Barbara police appear to have closed the book on a six-year-old cold-case murder investigation, arresting 24-year-old Eutimio Osvaldo Aispuro this week for the 2010 killing of Santa Barbara resident Samuel Bautista Justo. On the evening of September 25, 2010, officers conducting a welfare check at 36-year-old Justo’s apartment on Castillo Street discovered him dead inside. He had been stabbed multiple times. The investigation quickly focused on Aispuro, 18 at the time, who fled to Mexico, where he is a citizen. Detectives issued a no-bail arrest warrant and began the process with Mexican authorities to capture and extradite their suspect. That lengthy process was still underway when on June 4, 2016, United States Border Patrol agents found Aispuro in the Arizona desert southeast of Tucson and arrested him for illegal entry into the United States. He provided a false name, but his true name was discovered upon fingerprinting. Santa Barbara detectives interviewed Aispuro in Arizona on June 20 before arresting him and flying him back to the South Coast, where he was booked in County Jail. His arraignment date has not yet been set. — Indy Staff

water, city administrators had halted previously annual flushing programs. Under the new program, instead of water flowing from fire hydrants onto the street, it will be carried through tubes into Valvetek trucks, where it will enter a filtration system and be reused as recycled water. Citing a decision made by corporate, Paul Mitchell the School of Santa Barbara recently posted to its website an announcement stating it will close at the end of September. The school, one of Paul Mitchell’s five Southern California campuses, opened its 525 Anacapa Street salon and beauty school over eight years ago and employees about 17 people. The location has stopped enrolling new students, whom it’s directing to five Paul Mitchell campuses in Southern California.

COUNTY After questioning applicants who are proposing a zip line project in the Santa Ynez Valley, the county supervisors delayed the hearing until 7/19. The project — consisting of 20 individual zip lines — was unanimously approved by the county’s Planning Commission in January but was quickly appealed to the Board of Supervisors by a neighbor. Several speakers championed the project — “Kids can’t go wine tasting, and that’s all there is to do in the valley,” one said — but last-minute technical information that the appellant brought forward regarding Caltrans requirements necessitated the delay. County planners will review the information in the next month. On July 12, the county supervisors will hold a hearing to consider giving themselves a one percent pay raise, and tying future annual salary hikes to the consumer price index. Supervisor Salud Carbajal — who is running for Congress and stepping down at the end of this year — pledged Tuesday to give that

money back as he did during the furloughs in 2008. This time, the amount equates to less than $425; the supervisors earn $85,400 annually. In an interview, Carbajal explained the county has not finalized contracts with a number of employee groups — he wants to “set an example.” Asked if this decision had anything to do with the fact that negative TV ads chastised him for approving a 12 percent pay raise last year, he simply said, “No.” Citing “undue concentration” of places to buy alcohol in Los Olivos, the county supervisors nixed the possibility for Zinke Wine Company to sell bottled beer and wine out of their proposed gourmet market. According to county staffers, who recommended the denial, there are 20 more “off-sale” licenses than the ABC threshold allows — three — given the town’s population size, just over 3,000. Expressing disappointment, Matt Allen, attorney for the winery, charged the county “continues to make it harder and harder for small businesses to survive.” Ironically, Allen added, a tasting room will now probably go on the site instead because the county supervisors do not have a say over those ABC permits.

EDUCATION An online rally has gathered more than double its goal of raising $10,000 for José Saleta, 54, a Spanish-born translator with the Santa Barbara Unified School District who, for the past year, has been battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a degenerative disease of the nervous system that affects motor function. The funds will be used to make the family home — Saleta and his wife of 21 years have two sons — more comfortable and wheelchair friendly as the disease progresses. There will also be a barbecue fundraiser from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on June 25 at Dos Pueblos High School. n

PG&E Pulling Plug on Nuclear Power Plant

S

by N i C k W e l s h an Luis Obispo resident Rochelle Becker has been lobbying, fighting, and suing to shut down the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant in Avila Beach since her daughter Sierra was 8 years old, first with the organization Mothers for Peace and more recently with Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility. Last week, Becker’s daughter graduated from college; this Tuesday her granddaughter graduated from high school. On that same day, the Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) unveiled plans to gradually pull the plug on Diablo Canyon — the last nuclear power plant in California — and replace the energy produced by the twin power generators built 30 years ago with renewable energy. Specifically, PG&E pledged to allow its license with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to expire in 2024 and 2025 and not seek the extension it began pursuing six years ago. At a telephonic press conference held Tuesday morning, a host of environmental activists, including Becker, the union representing many of Diablo Canyon’s nearly 1,500 workers, and PG&E CEO Tony Earley hailed the negotiated deal as nothing less than “historic.” Some called it a “template” for shutting down the 60 other nuclear power plants throughout the United States. But during an interview before the press conference, Becker admitted she wasn’t quite sure how she felt.“I have to let it hit me first,” she said. The announcement came just one week before the California State Lands Commission was slated to review a permit extension request for the plant’s environmentally controversial water-discharge system, in which PG&E dumps water heated in the plant’s cooling process — necessary to prevent the radioactive core from melting down — directly into the ocean environment. Critics such as Becker have denounced this practice as thermal pollution and vowed to fight the permit. independent.com

Were they to have prevailed at State Lands next week, Diablo Canyon’s state permits would have expired in just two years, not nine. But given how PG&E has been hopscotching such regulatory hurdles for decades, it’s hard to imagine that outcome. What really drove the deal, stated Earley, was a new economic calculus brought on by state climate-change legislation requiring that 50 percent of all California electricity originate from renewable sources by the year 2030 (PG&E is pledging to hit 55 percent by 2031 In addition, he said, increased energy efficiencies have reduced California’s overall demand for juice. In this scenario, Diablo Canyon’s contribution to the grid will be downgraded from primary to only ancillary. But the plant will cost about the same to operate, no matter how reduced the output. Economically, Earley said, it makes no sense to operate nuclear power plants on an on-again, off-again basis. Because of the new renewable requirements, he estimated the cost to produce a kilowatt of nuclear power effectively doubled. Wind, solar, improved energy efficiencies, and energy storage systems, he said, will be cheaper.“It will cost less overall,” he said. After 45 years of almost nonstop environmental opposition, it’s hard to know what prompted PG&E’s come-to-Jesus revelation. “We all came to the conclusion there has to be a better way,” Earley said. But according to Damon Moglen of Friends of the Earth, an environmental organization that emerged decades ago over a split within the Sierra Club over Diablo Canyon, it was the “Plan B” document they prepared “conclusively showing” it was significantly cheaper to produce electricity renewably rather than with nuclear power. Over time, Friends of the Earth contends, the renewable path will be $1 billion cheaper. Earley said the company won’t have to increase rates to make the switch. Currently, the company derives about 30 percent of its power from renewable sources. To the extent getting to 55 percent proves a challenge, he noted sevcont’d page 12 

by N i C k W e l s h he federal agency responsible for regulating oil-pipeline safety issued a new corrective order this week that will require Plains All American Pipeline to equip its national pipeline control room in Midland, Texas, with advanced leakdetection equipment. The agency said such new equipment, coupled with the installation of additional safety valves, would help Plains control room operators respond sooner to pipeline oil spills, like the one that happened last May to Plains’ Line 901 located by Refugio Beach. Last May’s oil spill was caused by external pipeline corrosion that the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has concluded Plains could and should have known about sooner; to that end, PHMSA ordered Plains to embrace a far more vigorous, frequent, and fine-tuned program for corrosion detection and prevention. This is PHMSA’s third amendment to the corrective action order in response to last year’s oil spill. Plains All American was not available for comment, but the company must comply with a myriad of new terms and conditions before Line 901 — and portions of the nearby Line 903 — can be used. The Texas-based oil company also has the option of appealing. To date, Plains has not appealed any of PHMSA’s prior amendments to the corrective action order. Congressmember Lois Capps applauded the order, noting it contained many of the more “stringent safety requirements” she has sought in the aftermath of the spill. Traditionally, advanced pipeline-leak-detection capability is not something PHMSA requires of pipeline operators. Among the emergency flow-restriction devices that Plains All American may be ordered to install are automatic shutoff valves. Plains is the only pipeline company in Santa Barbara County not to have such devices on its pipelines, its predecessor having legally fought efforts by the county regulators in the 1980s to require automatic shutoff valves. County energy planners contend automatic shutoff valves — activated by sudden pressure drops caused by pipeline ruptures — would have reduced the amount of oil spilled at Refugio. Since last May’s spill, Plains has been the subject of multiple civil lawsuits and one criminal action filed jointly by California Attorney General Kamala Harris and Santa Barbara District Attorney Joyce Dudley. The stretch of pipeline that failed was nearly 80 percent corroded. That’s roughly twice as much as tests conducted by Plains All American two years before indicated. Had Plains abided by federal safety requirements, the criminal complaint alleges, the extent of corrosion would have been caught sooner. The complaint also contends that Plains’ oil spill detection and response plans were either

FROM DEFENSE TO OFFENSE: Plains All American contends local media coverage has been so biased that the company can’t get a fair trial. inadequate or inadequately executed. Plains has insisted in court that the pipeline spill was accidental and that the criminal charges are utterly unwarranted. This week, Plains attorneys accused Harris and Dudley of making false and inflammatory statements to the media about the company’s responsibility for the spill in a manner “patently designed to poison the jury pool and prejudice Plains.” These charges were made in legal documents Plains filed to prevent transcripts of the Grand Jury investigation into the oil spill from being made public. That investigation led Harris and Dudley to file 46 criminal charges — four felonies and 42 misdemeanors — against Plains. The Texas-based company contends that the release of such documents will impair the ability of the company and James Buchanan — the company’s environmental regulatory compliance chief — to get a fair trial. Plains attorney Susan Yu described media coverage of the spill as “continuous, inflammatory, and highly prejudicial,” noting that the local press had generated 500 distinct news articles about the spill. She also described as “prejudicial” televised images of “oil pouring into the ocean, oil-slicked waters and beaches, and oiled and dead animals and birds.” The release of Grand Jury transcripts, she contended, would make it that much harder for her clients to get a fair and impartial hearing. Yu objected to comments made by Harris and Dudley during a May 17 press conference announcing the indictments. At that press conference Harris and Dudley described Plains as being “uncooperative” during the investigation. Yu said those remarks were “highly prejudicial and inaccurate.” She also said it was “improper” that Harris and Dudley released the identity, title, and age of the only individually named defendant, James Buchanan. As a result, she said, Buchanan and his family were “hounded” by members of the media seeking interviews. The next scheduled court date for the Plains case is June 30. n

County Passes ‘Status Quo’ Financial Plan

D

by k e l s e y b r u g g e r

uring this week’s budget hearings, the board of supervisors swiftly reviewed every county department and passed a $1 billion budget. For the fourth year, Supervisor Peter Adam was the sole vote against it. He complained the county continuously fails to adequately fund road and infrastructure repairs. Unlike his colleagues — who said the budget reflected their priorities—Adam argued he had “a fundamental disagreement that this is a balanced budget.” This year, the process was less “painful,” as Supervisor Salud Carbajal put it, compared to the recession years when the county was $72 million in the hole. Carbajal, who noted he has participated in 24 budget hearings, added,“I think today we are in a point where we can say we are resilient.” Among the highlights of this year’s budget are the following:

mental health The supervisors allocated $243,000 to set up a capital fund for mental-health beds. “I really believe that it’s time now that we put our money where our mouth is,” said Supervisor Janet Wolf. The budget hearing is the one time of the year the board majority needs just three votes to make a sizable financial decision. For now, the capital fund is a placeholder. At a hearing in early August, Behavioral Wellness Director Alice Gleghorn will return to the board with more specifics. To augment senior services, the supervisors set aside $90,000 in ongoing funds and $58,000 in onetime funds for public health. sheriff The supervisors set aside $951,000 to keep the Santa Maria branch jail operating. In addition, they approved 15 new deputies — $1.3 million from Northern Branch jail operations funds—starting October 2016. Until the new North County facility opens, the deputies will be used as shift relief for overworked personnel at the Main Jail. The supervisors also allocated $75,000 in ongoing funds for a Sheriff’s service technician.

maintenance For the fourth year in a row, Adam, the most conservative member of the board, stressed the county’s deferred maintenance backlog, which sits at $334 million. The other four supervisors conveyed irritation at his unyielding focus. “I was really hoping we’d conclude this budget hearing without talking about PCI,” Wolf added, referring to the Pavement Condition Index. She wondered why they weren’t asking about the FCI (Family and Children’s Index) or the LI (Library Index). The issue of road repair has formed a wedge between Adam and his colleagues. Two years ago, after Adam’s controversial maintenance measure—Measure M—was narrowly defeated, the county supervisors voted to squirrel away 18 percent of revenue growth each year for 10 years, or about $100 million over a decade, for repairs. But Adam contended the offer wasn’t good enough and voted against it. Wage theft Prosecutor Earlier this year,  CAUSE  (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy) advocated for Santa Barbara and Ventura counties to adopt a so-called Farmworker Bill of Rights, but it has yet to gain any traction. Critics took issue with a report the group published that claimed egregious working conditions and illegal labor practices were commonplace. Among many things, CAUSE called for a new position to be added in the District Attorney’s Office to focus on crimes committed against workers. This new DA position, now an ongoing $160,000 item in the budget, will also focus on environmental crime. District Attorney Joyce Dudley said the department previously had a dedicated attorney for such cases, but the position was cut in 2010. Now, she said, environmental complaints are filed with her office but aren’t prosecuted because they don’t have the necessary resources.

Last year, the county supervisors paid for a study to examine the advantages and risks of Community Choice Energy, which sets up an agency — a collaboration of counties and cities—to purchase or produce electricity for customers. According to county staff, the program has proved successful in many other jurisdictions. The findings of the study will return to the board in the fall.

Maria police announced the arrests of 16 people believed to be connected to Mara Salvatrucha, the transnational gang known as MS-13. The supervisors also gave the  DA’s Office $300,000 to support the prosecution efforts of the multi-defendant murder case.

speed dating Through the process one observer likened to speed dating, the supervisors faced a number of pleas for extra funding from outside agencies. The following organizations were given onetime funds: Transition House ($50,000); PATH, or People Assisting the Homeless, which took over Casa Esperanza ($50,000); the Community Action Commission ($50,000); Good Samaritan ($50,000); the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center ($20,000); the Buellton Senior Center ($15,000); AmeriCorps ($10,000); New Beginnings ($10,000); and the Solvang Senior Center ($4,000). Wolf expressed discontent with the supervisors’ practice of funding outside agencies. She voiced frustration with the fact the county allocates hundreds of thousands of dollars to such organizations—particularly homeless service providers—without input from county departments.“This process that we now have is a little unwieldy,” she said. n

Over the next 24 hours, the Sherpa Fire grew from bad to worse, temporarily closing the highway again, destroying that watertreatment plant at the top of El Capitan Canyon, threatening ExxonMobil’s crude oil processing plant in Las Flores Canyon, and raging to within about 20 yards of Highway 101 as whirling dust devils spun flames into hellish tornados. At one point, jumping embers lit up the center divider on Highway 101 but were quickly extinguished by a water drop. While the El Capitan State Beach campground was spared, its water-treatment plant was “a total loss,” according to California State Parks Supervisor Eric Hjelstrom.“We’re doing our darndest to get a temporary treatment plant online and reopen the park.” The privately run El Capitan Canyon and Ocean Mesa campgrounds operate on a separate water source and are scheduled to reopen on June 25. After a night that saw the fire expand to roughly 4,000 acres, with only 5 percent containment, Santa Barbara County Supervisor Doreen Farr announced on the morning of June 17 a local state of emergency, which would free up more personnel and equipment resources for the firefighting effort and better position the county to receive emergency funding from the state. Farr added that the fire had consumed considerable farmland. “It’s too soon to know the value of the loses,” said Cathy Fisher, the county’s agricultural commissioner. She said olive, avocado, lemon, and rangeland were hit hardest. Despite the forecasted heat wave that promised low humidity and spiking tempera-

Raising Canine

PERPLEXING: The whole thing is peculiar. Certainly the defendant, Pierre Haobsh

—said to be brilliant when discussing complex technical issues but socially awkward, inappropriate, and notably lacking common sense—qualifies as very peculiar. But then so are the “facts” surrounding Haobsh’s alleged murder of Goleta’s much acclaimed Chinese herbalist Henry Han; his wife, Jennie; and their 5-year-daughter, Emily. They were all shot in the head, the bodies wrapped up in plastic sheets and sealed tight with duct tape. One might think a murderer with the foresight to bring along plastic sheets and duct tape would not drive around—as Haobsh reportedly did—with Jennie Han’s cell phone next to him. Presumably, the cell phone helped authorities ping Haobsh, 27, down at a gas station located not far from the small rental in Oceanside he shared with a mysterious father who may or may not have functioned as a clandestine CIA asset in the Middle East. In Santa Barbara, I don’t know if the wheels of justice grind fine, but they do grind exceedingly slow. Nearly four months after Haobsh’s arrest, and authorities have only just scheduled his preliminary hearing for September 28. In the meantime, attorneys for opposing sides are still debating whether Haobsh should appear in court wearing his orange jail-house jumpsuit, chain-link belt, and plastic can’t-run-away slippers or whether

he should be allowed to appear in less guilt-

presumed civilian street clothes.What’s there to argue about? In potential death-penalty cases, this would seem a no-brainer. Clearly, any inconvenience involved with allowing Haobsh a change of clothes is outweighed by the perception—and reality—of fairness. Regardless, much saliva will be wasted hashing out this nonissue next week. To date, three judges have had their hands on this case. On this — and other key issues — none have spoken with one voice. In the meantime, the much-loved herbal clinic Han ran has been shut down and key staff terminated, reportedly because the lease ran out, but more likely because of disagreements between Han’s family and that of his wife’s over disposition of the assets. For hundreds of patients who rely on Han, that means no place to get their prescriptions filled. In the meantime, a Chinese herbalist trained in Western medicine, Dr. Helen Sharkey, will be traveling from San Francisco to see Han’s patients out of a tiny space provided by the Santa Barbara Yoga Center. Patients seeking their medical files are advised to submit written requests to Santa Barbara Fiduciary, retained to help handle disposition of the estate. Murder investigators are notoriously tightlipped. They’re saying only that Haobsh had an unspecified business relationship with Han, that he killed the Han family for financial gain, and that he did so while lying in wait. This week, documents fell into my lap

that provided more detail. They confirmed Han and Haobsh had been trying to start a new business venture— Molecular Scientific, LLC —together shortly before the murders. The executive summary of the business plan listed six principals—Haobsh and Han being just two—to create “a high tech nutraceutical and pharmaceutical company” combining Chinese herbal medicine with medicinal marijuana and hemp oil tinctures known as CBDs, plus a line of cosmetic skin-care products relying on a stem-cells-culture serum. According to sources close to the clinic, Han was hoping to make big bucks on the skin care cream and use the proceeds to underwrite an innovative new cancer treatment mixing CBDs—compounds extracted from hemp and pot plants said to have a wide range of powerful healing properties and that don’t induce euphoria—and traditional Chinese herbal formulations. It’s an intriguing onetwo punch that combines his mother’s skills as a pioneer in the treatment of uterine cancer and his father’s gifts as a caring dermatologist. Word has it that Han’s longtime medical mentor in China had just completed a clinical trial using a new herbal formulation to fight unspecified cancers. Han had asked for a sample and was reportedly expecting delivery the very week he was killed. If true, that would seem like an interesting coincidence. The Molecular Scientific prospectus displayed a keen awareness of marijuana’s evolving legal status. The author exclaimed over the potential profits if and when pot becomes legal. The U.S. pot market was esti-

mated at $2.6 billion in 2014, it read, and was projected to grow to $35 billion in a few years. The author optimistically estimated it could grow to as much as $100 billion. The plan was to establish the new company as both manufacturer and name-brand retailer of highquality but relatively low-cost CBD-infused oils from pot or hemp plants depending on their legal status. The projected start-up cost for this venture was pegged at $2 million. Of the six principals named, Han is dead and Haobsh is in jail. I spoke with two others, but neither wanted to talk. One has run a high-profile business in Goleta from which he is now retired; he declined to be interviewed, explaining mistakes made by news reporters have a way of getting people seriously hurt. In googling this individual, I was struck by the large number of civic organizations with which he’s been actively involved. I was also struck by a conspicuous dearth of images. Maybe that’s also peculiar. Maybe not. The other ran a nationally based clothing company headquartered here for many years. He likewise was not eager to talk. He’d attended only one meeting, he said, and expressed surprise his name had been listed as a principal. The impression they gave is that Molecular Scientific was a short-lived entrepreneurial belch that’s subsequently morphed into something else involving other people. Maybe some of them, I was told, would be willing to talk with me. Who knows? Maybe they will. But if the tables were turned, I doubt I’d talk to me. And if I did, I’d consider that — Nick Welsh pretty damn peculiar.

James Siebert 05/17/41-06/03/16

Dearly loved friend, father, and fine artist extraordinaire, James Siebert swiftly and peacefully passed away in Santa Barbara on the evening of June 3rd, surrounded in the lovingkindness of family and close friends. He was 75 years young! Colorful, unwaveringly positive, and ever-cheerful, James could regularly be seen on Sundays at the Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show, on the lawn near the skateboard park at East Beach, displaying his beautiful, vibrant, flowing, large abstract paintings. This was his signature style of art crafted and refined in a fine-art career that spanned 5 decades. He participated in this SB Art Show for over 35 years. James was born in 1941 in Los Angeles to an English mother and American Father. He was the youngest of 3 siblings. His loving sister, Sandra, passed earlier this year, and his elder brother, Bob, lives with his wife, Ann, in Southern CA. James is survived by his only son, Daniel, and his grandson, Oliver, who reside in Santa Barbara. In his mid-twenties, James decided to follow his career passion to become a full-time artist. At the heart of this passion was his cherished philosophy: “live what you love and love what you live.” He attended the renowned Theodore Lukits Academy of Fine Art for 6 years and refined the disciplines of representational painting and sculpture. In 1971, he turned his talent to stone carving. He continued to work in that medium for about a decade. During that period, he was primarily represented by the Fine Arts Sculpture Gallery at the MGM Hotel in Las Vegas. He went on to create an exceptional line of marine, figurative, and abstract sculpture, pioneering casting techniques in bronze and establishing the Siebert Art Studio. James sold thousands of editions 16

of his sculptures, and many of these grace private and public art collections worldwide, including those of presidents Reagan and Clinton, as well as many Hollywood elite. In the late ’80s James turned his focus to painting. When he debuted his unique abstract style at the Masters Gallery in La Jolla, this solo exhibit sold out! Over the many years of his professional career, James’s paintings and sculptures have been represented by numerous galleries throughout the United States. He truly loved making art and worked at it diligently. He painted almost every day, creating an enormous body of work. James lived life fully and deeply and embraced a genuine spiritual appreciation and understanding of life’s meaning and purpose. He will ever be lovingly remembered as a truly independent and “free spirit” with a beautiful child-like smile and kindness of heart. One of his most favorite lines was “I did it my way” from Sinatra’s song “My Way.” Thank you, dear James, for fearlessly choosing to live your life your way: uniquely, passionately, and dedicated to beauty, truth, freedom, and well-being!

Ronald Ousey 03/06/28-06/20/16

Ronald Ousey was born in Rochdale, England, on March 6, 1928. His parents were William and Florence (Farden) Ousey. He was predeceased by three brothers Joseph, Ernest and Albert. In 1957, wishing for a better life with more opportunity, Ron brought his wife, Beryl, and two daughters to Windsor, Ontario, Canada. He was creative and a fine chef, so they opened a restaurant bordering the Detroit River. In 1964, deciding that his family needed sunnier weather, they moved their now four children to Santa Barbara, CA, in order to manage the Santa Barbara Yacht Club. In 1968 they opened the Encina Restaurant across from Cottage Hospital. While operating the Encina, he also won several prestigious culinary awards and catered many glamorous local events and weddings. Ron taught a popular Continental Seafood cooking class through Santa Barbara Adult Education for many years and was an instructor in the Culinary Arts program at Santa Barbara City College. He was a member of the Magnolia Lodge, the Shrine, and the Pacific Coast Chefs Association and was a Paul Harris Rotarian Fel-

Bill Underwood, 89, died peacefully in his sleep at home in Long Beach, CA, on May 5, 2016. He will be dearly missed by his friends and family. He was a proud father, grandfather, and uncle. He enjoyed world travel and a rousing political conversation. Born in Manhattan Beach, CA, to English immigrants William and Lilly Underwood, he is also preceded in death by two sisters, Eva Dennison and Peggy Allen. He moved with his family to Toronto at a very young age. During high school, he worked in a shipyard and enlisted in the U.S. Navy at 17 which sent him to New York and San Diego for

training. He was stationed in the Aleutian Islands, where he served as an electrician’s mate from 1945 through 1947. After his Navy service, Bill got his degree from UCLA and was married in 1950 to Corinne (Berg) Underwood until their divorce in 1999. Bill moved his family to Santa Barbara in 1967, where he founded Gyrex Corporation. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to purchase Techcon Systems in Carson, California, which he operated until the mid ‘90s. Bill was very active in sailboat racing and was a former commodore of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club. He and his family were regulars at Cherry Cove on Catalina Island, home away from home, where he continued to visit even in his later years. He found joy in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, where he lived during the winter months and honed his sport fishing and margaritamaking skills. He had many friends there and was a strong supporter of the Netza School for indigenous children. Bill is survived by his son, Jack Underwood (Janet) of Los Altos, CA, and daughter, Chris Hurwitz (Ken) of Mill Valley, CA, as well as four grandchildren, Miles Hurwitz, Dayna Underwood, Paige Hurwitz, and Russel Underwood. He was cared for tenderly and lovingly by his friend Lauren Jemila in the last years of his life. A celebration of his life will be held by his family at a later date in Long Beach and in Zihuatanejo.

When the oil industry set its sights on Santa Barbara’s abundant offshore reserves in the early 1980s, Klausner played a crucial role in limiting onshore oil-processing facilities. He helped bring an end to oil tankers in the channel, forcing oil companies to transport their product by pipeline instead. Klausner was on the frontlines of efforts to impose more stringent onshore air-quality standards because of the pollution generated by offshore oil platforms. In response, Exxon’s representative famously told Klausner and the environmental community to “stick it in their ear” during a county supervisors meeting. Almost as famously, that Exxon spokesperson swiftly found himself relocated to Alaska. The tough air-quality standards, however, stuck.

College and in 1925 married David Klausner, a Columbia-educated lawyer from Jersey City. Bob Klausner was born in 1926; his younger brother, Bill, came three years later. As a child, Klausner was smart and athletic. Though not religious, the family was involved in Jewish social organizations. In high school, Klausner was one of only a few Jews, and he reported being bullied because of it. His mother was quite strict, and when he got in a fight, she punished him severely. It was the live-in housekeeper, Isabelle Glover, to whom Klausner looked for emotional sustenance and who instilled in him a sense of community responsibility. Klausner attended Yale during World War II, graduating as part of an accelerated naval officers training program. He spent two years in the U.S. Navy, attended Columbia to get an MBA, and dropped out after one year to work for Macy’s. Economics he would later dismiss as “voodoo science.” After figuring out a puzzle that no one else reportedly could solve, Klausner was offered a position with H. Warshow & Sons, the elastic textile manufacturer. In 1950, he married Elizabeth Bloom — known as Betty — whose parents, exceptionally wealthy New Yorkers, thought the Jersey-born Klausner was utterly beneath their daughter. Betty, however, had ideas of her own. The day she met Klausner, she announced,“I just met the man I’m going to marry.” When Bob and Betty moved to Santa Barbara in 1973, they bought a beachfront property near the Miramar hotel boasting some of the most spectacular ocean views on planet Earth. Their oldest daughter, Kim, had already grown up and moved out, and their son, Drew, was soon graduating, but their youngest daughter, Kathy, then 13, thought it insane that anyone would move from New York City. Over time, however, she recognized how happy her parents were, her father especially. “Both of them were able to do in Santa Barbara what they couldn’t do anyplace else,” she said. “Make an impact.” “He didn’t talk about his accomplishments much,” Kathy said. “Mostly he was just dad.” Later, Kathy recalled how Chevron — one of the oil companies with which Klausner crossed swords — was trying to dig up dirt on her father to discredit him. “As a teenager, that was kind of cool,” she remembered. “That’s what you see in the movies.” What CEC founder Relis and former Santa Barbara mayor Conklin saw in Klausner was a force of nature. At the time, the two were operating the Ecology Center. Conklin remembered “a whirlwind” dressed in coat and tie walking in the front door, “eyes bulging with a crazed look on his face.” Looking at the tall, thin, dark-haired man, talking a mile a minute in an unmistakable New York accent, Relis wondered, “Who the hell is this guy?” Turned out he was a man on a mission. Mission number one was establishing a recycling program. Back then recycling consisted of newspaper collection drives by the Boy Scouts and the Mormon Church. But Klausner was all about business, recalled Relis. He negotiated a long-term contract with Garden State Recycling to buy

recycled newsprint at prices which could not be lowered, no matter how violently the market price dropped. And he also got City Hall to lease an abandoned public-works structure at Garden and Ortega streets — now the Community Arts Workshop, where Summer Solstices floats are brought to life — to function as a recycling center for $1 a year. “We didn’t really know squat back then, but because of Bob, we were the only recycling operation in the whole state with a fixed contract,” said Conklin. “That saved us.” Klausner didn’t stop there. He expanded the program countywide and then went after a contract with the brass at Vandenberg Air Force Base. This involved travels to Battle Creek, Michigan, New Orleans, and ultimately Washington, D.C., which Klausner paid for out of his own pocket. In D.C., Klausner and Conklin pitched to the assistant secretary of defense for environmental affairs. He listened and agreed. Relis was blown away. “There were no walls for Bob,” Relis said. Klausner always focused on the person, not their rank. Klausner told Conklin: “’Every man puts on his pants one leg at a time.’’ While Klausner is best known for his environmental agenda, he also worked quietly behind the scenes on homeless issues. Ken Williams, a former county social worker and longtime homeless-rights advocate, recalled being summoned to the Balboa Building to meet with Klausner. He wanted to help homeless people for whom a one-time infusion of cash would get them off the streets. There would be no grant applications or hoops to jump through. Klausner would provide the money; Williams would give it away, providing reports to Klausner later. Once, Williams recalled, Klausner was brimming over with tears. The program lasted about two years, and as many as 200 people were helped. Bob and Betty Klausner quietly left Santa Barbara in 1993 with no farewell tour or orations. All three kids lived in the Bay Area by then, and the Klausners became doting grandparents. Bob got a $1 million Pentagon contract to suss out the viability of electric-gas hybrid cars, long before the Prius was invented. That effort would be stalled by an audit that — like the Chevron inquiry years before — yielded no dirt. To this day, Klausner’s daughter Kathy suspects the audit was politically motivated. Over the past seven years, Klausner mostly took care of his wife, a victim of Alzheimer’s. In recent years, he, too, experienced dementia. Always the linear thinker, Klausner planned everything out meticulously, anticipating all eventualities in advance. His spirit stayed high. He recently told a friend, “I don’t do downers.” Dave Davis vividly remembers taking Klausner’s phone call over the years. It was always the same low, smooth voice — very friendly, very deliberate, and absolutely focused: “‘Dave, I want to talk to you about something,’ he’d say.” Davis, who just stepped down from his perch at the CEC, described Klausner as an absolutely engaging human being.“Anytime you’d talk to Bob, you’d walk away feeling smarter,” Davis said. “I’m going n to miss those phone calls.

Orlando Tolls for Us All

I

n the wake of last weekend’s atrocity in Orlando, there’s no need to ask for whom that damn bell tolls. It tolls loudest and most personally for those directly touched by the violence — for the 49 innocents who were gunned down that night, for the many wounded in that murderous attack, and for everyone who loves someone touched directly by it. And it tolls viscerally for all members of the LGBTQ community and their extended families and friends. Orlando also hits home chillingly for members of the Muslim community, because to be Muslim in America is to be blamed and reviled for every barbaric act committed in the name of Islam. To be Muslim in America is to fear, and to be feared. Orlando has an all-too-familiar ring to it for Jews, too, echoing the shootings at the Kansas Jewish Community Center in 2014 and the Los Angeles Jewish Community Center in 1999, and a litany of past atrocities too numerous to mention. It echoes the Holocaust, which targeted not only Jews, but gays, Roma gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, disabled people, and other groups that were viewed as the “other.” Fifteen years ago, the shock waves of pain in the wake of 9/11 found voice in the simple, powerful statement “We are all Americans today.” That statement expressed empathy, of course, but also, identity. “We are all Americans today” proclaimed that we were all the targets of the 9/11 terrorists, and for a short while after 9/11, the world became a smaller, more connected place. That’s what needs to happen now, too. We need to recognize that the Orlando atrocity was, truly, an attack on all the freedoms that we aspire to as Americans — freedom of religion, speech, association, as well as the freedom of gender identity and sexual orientation, and the freedom to live without hatred. Orlando was an attack on all of us. Only by coming together as a single community, united in love and in the rejection of hate, can we allow something good to come from this senseless, evil act. And when we say,“We are all Americans today,”that powerful statement must include the LGBTQ and the Muslim communities. We owe that to the Orlando victims. And we owe it to ourselves. — Rabbi Arthur Gross Schaefer and Peter Melnick, Community Shul of Montecito and Santa Barbara

Just two days later, our nation awoke to the horror that resulted in 49 innocent lives murdered and stripped away from their families and loved ones due to hate and gun violence. We must stand in solidarity with #Orlando and the LGBTQ community to send a message to all communities across the nation that we will not be bullied by the bigotry and venom of those armed and mobilized by hate to destroy and end the lives of innocent people. We must rise and organize against revulsion and gun violence. We must send a clear message to our leaders across the nation that we will not accept mass shootings as the new normal. We must hold those accountable who continue to bend at the will of the gun lobby. In solidarity against gun violence, the Concert Across America will be held to remember the victims of gun violence on September 25, 2016; in Santa Barbara it will be at the Arlington Theatre. Artists and the community will join together to remember the victims of gun violence and to promote unity, peace, and education in gun-violence prevention. Our video, “Hallelujah,” offers a glance at our movement to mobilize with music against gun violence. — Christina Pizarro, director of communications, Coalition Against Gun Violence

Armory Bond Backed

I

n a recent meeting of the Santa Barbara schoolboard, there was broad enthusiasm and support among members for adding the purchase and development of the Army National Guard Armory property to a bond measure slated for this November. This is wonderful news for the community, and I encourage all residents who value public education to strongly support this initiative. The acquisition of the Armory property will significantly enhance the educational opportunities of our students and residents, who would benefit from a potential variety of dynamic programs, courses, and uses the facility could provide in such rare proximity to two existing secondary-school sites. It would also link the two existing campuses of Santa Barbara Junior High and Santa Barbara High School to create the single largest public-education property in the city. Many thanks to those who have led

Not Your Mother’s Smoke

A

h, the smell of smoke. I used to burn in my fireplace. For years, the family would gather ’round, toast marshmallows, make s’mores, talk about our day. Then, my neighbor called me. She was near tears. She told me that the smoke from my many fires was making her life a misery. An hour’s worth of online research later, I shut down my fireplace for good. After you read this, I hope you will do the same. Wood smoke is loaded with toxic chemicals. It is just as bad for you as cigarette smoke. In fact, it is much worse. Wood smoke contains particulate matter (PM2.5), carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, dioxins, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs .23). Wood smoke particles are so ultra-fine (about 1/45th the width of a human hair) they behave like gases. Seventy percent of wood smoke reenters your home and the homes of your neighbors. You think cigarettes are bad? One hour of wood burning is equal to burning 6,000 packs of cigarettes. Wood smoke is now classified as a Class One carcinogen. It causes significant DNA damage. Wood smoke pollutes the air, interferes with lung development in children, and increases a child’s risk for serious lower respiratory infections. Exposure can depress one’s immune system and cause headaches, asthma, sore throat, and itchy eyes. We used to think that lead paint was okay, and DDT was perfectly fine. We didn’t worry about asbestos or cigarette smoke. Now we know better. We need to stop harming ourselves and others by burning wood. Remember this: There is no amount of wood smoke — L.A. Kelly, S.B. that is safe to breathe. L.A. Kelly is a member of the Alliance for Healthy Air.

A Revolution of Hope

A

s we move on from mental-awareness month in May, my view on my mental illness is that it’s not going to go away. I have learned to live with it as peacefully and effectively as I can. The idea that I am going to wake up one day and not have mental illness is highly unlikely, and that was so damned difficult to accept. But with acceptance came a new determination, an infusion of energy, and an uncanny ability to think outside the box. It becomes not about extinguishing symptoms but about living harmoniously with them. I think this is where many psychiatrists, mental-health-care workers, and many who have mental illness may have it wrong. For example, I do not need to learn to go into a crowded store that is frightening and overwhelming to me when there are other stores that carry the same product. My measure of success is not whether I can go into scary stores; my measure of success is in finding innovative ways to live effectively and joyously with the symptoms that I have. There are so many ways to work around symptoms, work with symptoms, and incorporate symptoms into one’s life, rather than being taught how to tolerate them. I also don’t have to feel bad about myself because I have mental illness: I am not broken, I am not damaged, I am different, and it takes a special kind of strength to live with mental illness. I’m okay with not being like you, and I am capable of, and do, celebrate those differences. Let’s repaint the face of recovery using colors created and chosen by persons with mental illness. Let’s start a revolution of hope! — Erin Arthur, Lompoc The Independent welcomes letters of less than 250 words that include a daytime phone number for verification.

Welcomes Two New Faces

f the Summer Solstice Parade allowed words on its past vis-à-vis the June 25 deadline. “People tell me that’s true,” ensembles (it doesn’t) and if its honchos indulged in said Elander, who ran the ArtWalk organization in Ventura cheap corporate gimmickry (they don’t), this year’s and the Santa Barbara Open Streets Festival before she was premier float would bear the legend “Under New hired by Solstice. “I think people are keen on the Legends Management.” The parade, which began as artistic theme.” She laughed off the notion that her tenure caused free spirit Michael Gonzales’s thrift-store-clothing-festooned instant rejuvenation, and the theme has inspired some ingebirthday party, evolved into an annual event and is now in its nuities, although there is an ensemble of American legends, 42nd year and headed by a new duo — (pictured above, from such as Babe the Blue Ox and Paul Bunyan; a dazzling pirate left) Robin Elander and Robby Robbins. The parade’s forma- ship; and a flaming zeppelin. On the other hand, the parade tive era featured nearly as many directors as years in business has an elegiac side, supporting two tributes to Prince — with the young artist in residence John Sinclair scouras it groped for identity and a permanent home behind the scenes while it conga-kicked merrily up State ing town feverishly for people who want Street as 100,000 spectators blithely watched. to hold umbrellas and move to “Purple Rain.” Elander thinks the excitement is During the last 16 years, however, the celebration actually found relative stability under good no matter what inspired it. “I’m the year-round care of executive director just excited that people are excited,” Claudia Bratton, who recently retired. Presshe said. ent since the first parade, Bratton quested Robbins and Elander both believe after financial solvency (or something like the parade needed infusions of youth. it), finding a home and pushing the parades’ “Not just in the artists’ program,” said Robbins, “but encouragement for a floats and troupes toward a more fun-for-theby d.J. Palladino whole-family celebration style. She sacrificed a younger group at the workshop.” In an bit of the wildness, but she got what she sought. extremely sly recruitment effort, the parade This year’s change of guard was nothing like a coup. has stepped up its kids-and-parents zone at the “I think Claudia is as important to this parade as Michael after-party parade in Alameda Park, which has been run by Gonzales was,” said Robbins, the brand-new development and Lark Batteau, Children’s Festival coordinator for the last four communications director for the parade. “She stabilized us, years, featuring crafts and performances. This year, however, which is amazing.” Elander, the new executive director, agrees: the youth brigades are planning their own parade, put together “She hasn’t been around much, though she attends events, but on Saturday after the big march and presented Sunday, beginI know I can contact her anytime for help.” There are board- ning at the park’s main stage and ending in the kids’ area. members and friends of the parade to help, and Elander and Older children are needed, too, and Solstice made some headway on Wednesday, June 15, hosting a group called LoaTree Robbins feel they inherited a well-oiled crazy machine. From the beginning of her tenure, though, Elander has at the workshop, an environmentally encouraging organizaused her own voice. She wanted to promote attendance at tion that puts on hipster mixer events called Green Drinks. the workshops, and her wish seems to be coming to fruition. Elander, friends with LoaTree’s Eric Cardenas, brought scads Everybody on the corner of Ortega and Garden streets, the of thirty-somethings to see the almost-finished floats while former recycling center where Solstice now rents from the sipping locally brewed beverages and dancing to the ubiquiCommunity Arts Workshop — perhaps Bratton’s best legacy tous Darla Bea’s deejay party machine.“There are people here —is clearly busier than ever, and many longtime observers say who didn’t even know the parade was in its 42nd year and are the troupes seem further along with their floats than in the looking at the place for the first time,” said Elander.

Robin ElandER and

Robby Robbins

Head Up Beloved parade

Philosophically speaking, the party also underscores Elander and Robbins’s shift toward an even more eco-friendly event, an idea always dear to Solsticers’ hearts. Besides a renewed relationship with Art from Scrap, Elander will replace parade-day water bottles with water stations, encouraging people to bring refillable containers. In that spirit, Robbins decided not to open the parade with the annual balloon arch. “I just can’t see all that plastic being the first thing that people see,” he said. The food gardens will feature area vendors and more real food, said Elander. But maybe the best news hailing from the parade is the end of the clunky ticket system used for buying food and grog after the parade. People will be able to plunk down coin of the realm and buy their elote, bánh mì, and baba ghanoush — or whatever delectable tidbits are available — and then devour them on the grass.“[In the past], we had people leaving the park to eat, and that’s just not right,” said Robbins. The sense of mild party censorship might never fade, though Robbins and Elander don’t really want to bring up the wooly past, when proponents of crazy creative freedom butted heads with Solstice nabobs preferring fun without offense. Few really want to see sadomasochistic floats reprised or, for that matter, ogle naked middle-agers. But nobody knows what will happen until it’s over, and craziness is kind of the point. Neither Robbins nor Elander was present at the beginning; in fact, both are newcomers compared to Bratton. Robbins moved here in 2006 and was in his first parade one year later, representing this paper. Elander hasn’t been in one yet. But nobody questions their passion. Elander stands for a certain simplicity of vision.“I just love parades. I’m a sucker for them; they make me cry,” she said. “It’s the biggest outpouring possible from a community. There’s no better way to say, ‘Look at me!’” For Robbins, it’s personal, too. “One day I was talking to some people about the parade, and I kept calling myself a participant, when Riccardo Morrison, the artistic director, asked why I don’t call myself an artist. I laughed, but he said,‘You just spent all these hours making a giant hat, and then you walked down a street and entertained 100,000 people. What more do you have to do to be an artist?’” w

How to Find Quality Guys Online

Dating ave you ever wondered how to find a quality match on Tinder? Have you ever wondered why more people aren’t swiping right? Have you ever looked through potential matches and come across a group photo and thought, “Which one is he?” Author A.J. Nelson claims to have all these dating app answers and more in his new book, Not Here for Hookups: A Guide to Finding Quality Men on Dating Apps without Compromising YOU! Nelson, who splits his time between Santa Barbara and Santa Monica, decided to research dating apps, specifically Tinder, after having “incredible success” using them himself. One of Nelson’s particularly good Tinder experiences ended up in a one-year relationship with a woman after a one- to two-month courtship over the app. “I know people that are getting married this year that met on Tinder, so we have to understand that the tides are changing,” Nelson said.

The Bolton family

The book is broken down into six parts, including sections where Nelson argues against the “bad rap” that dating sites get, and others where he advises how to make over your profile. The book also describes what kind of profiles you should avoid if you are looking for a relationship rather than a hookup and then suggests how to navigate an in-person meeting with a partner that you met online. “I am trying to champion the use of these apps,” said Nelson. “They are intrinsically superficial, but I also think that’s why they are kind of perfect and also why this book has resonated with twentysomethings.” Millennials move at a faster pace and have a lot more going on than past generations, said Nelson. “People are busier than ever,” he explained, “so it’s pretty important that we become comfortable leveraging technology to accomplish the things that are important to us, whether it’s finding a deal on something, booking a trip, or finding a worthwhile partner.” — Sydnee Fried

alia B., a niche perfumery line, brings together the scents and beauty of Santa Barbara. The line’s creator, Sharon Bolton, began her journey as a perfumer in 2006 with Sharon Bolton Scents, which she recently rebranded as Malia B. The inspiration for the new line was twofold: “It was the nature around Santa Barbara. You go out and are surrounded by gorgeous scents. I wanted something that reminds us of our connection to nature and a little sparkle of my daughter [Malia]. My daughter is joyful and light,” said Bolton. Since the age of 13, Bolton has enjoyed blending together different scents. However, she began noticing problems with many of the mainstream perfumes currently on the market: “I’ve always loved scents but not necessarily mainstream scents, and as I got older, they gave me headaches and made me nauseated,” claimed Bolton. Malia and the two other scents in her new line, Luv and Soul, are unique in that they are free of phthalates and alcohol. Since chemicals can change particular scents, Bolton’s eco-friendly perfume ensures that the “integrity of the scent stays a lot longer.” These scents, in the case of her line’s titular perfume, include white flowers, jasmine, oranges, and green top notes such as fresh-cut grass. Aside from using pure, natural essential oils and perfume essences to create clean, light, sparkling scents, Bolton uses eco-conscious packaging, as well. Her simple perfume packaging is embedded with wildflower seeds so that “when you take the packages off, you can put them in the ground, and you won’t have any waste,” said Bolton. The actual perfume bottle is also recyclable. Bolton hopes to “look after Mother Nature” by not only creating an eco-conscious product but also using scents inspired by the beauty around us. Malia B. perfumes can be purchased online at maliab.com or in stores around Santa Barbara, including Aqua Skin and Nail Bar, Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique, Serenity by Stephanie, and Treat. — Rebecca Hartt independent.com

UCSB’s ace pitcher Shane Bieber was up to the task, limiting Oklahoma State to one run.

Game of the Week

BOUND FOR RIO: The U.S. Olympic women’s water polo team will include (from left) Santa Barbara’s Sami Hill, Kiley Neushul, and Kami Craig.

Craig, a graduate of Santa Barbara High and USC, has been a stalwart at center for the American women in the past two Olympics, winning a silver medal in 2008 and gold in 2012. “After getting a silver, we were on a warpath,” she said. “Nobody was going to take the gold away from us.” Craig is one of only four players returning from the 2012 team.“Now, it’s not about my dreams, but more about getting the rest of the team to the level it takes to win.” Hill and Neushul played together on three CIF championship teams at Dos Pueblos High. Hill, a goalkeeper, went to UCLA, while Neushul, a year younger, added a fourth CIF title and then played on three NCAA championship teams at Stanford. They are part of a youth movement that sparked the U.S. team to victory in last year’s FINA World Championship and No. 1 ranking. Krikorian calls Neushul, an attacker,“one of the most dynamic players in the world.” Kodi Hill, Sami’s younger sister, was one of four players who did not make the Olympic cut. “We wouldn’t be here without their support and cooperation,” Krikorian said. BOYS OF WATER POLO: Montenegro has sent its youth (15-18 years) water polo team to spend a week in Santa Barbara, holding practice sessions and scrimmaging against area clubs, including a 10 a.m. tilt Friday, June 24, at Santa Barbara High. The visit is held under the auspices of the Santa Barbara-Kotor Sister City Committee. n

anta Barbarans have a unique chance to spice up their kitchens this summer when Farhana Sahibzada comes to town to teach a series of Indian cooking classes in the recently redone kitchen at the SBCC Center for Lifelong Learning’s Schott Campus. The author of the Beverly Hills Book Award–winning cookbook FlavorFlavor ful Shortcuts to Indian/Pakistani Cooking Cooking, Sahibzada seeks to equip her students with all they need to simply produce a flavorful and authentic meal in their own homes. “My approach is not to complicate matters — less is more here,” she said.“My goal is not to try to impress the world with my ‘knowledge’ of 500 spices, so to speak, but rather to encourage people to move forward by showing them they can do fine with just five!” With more than 40 years of experience cooking and 20 years of teaching under her belt, Sahibzada’s recipes stem from her experiences in Punjab, Pakistan, where she lived and frequently visits to find the best techniques, secret ingredients, and shortcuts. “From the street vendors and local tandoors, to the chefs of prominent restaurants and hotels and seasoned home cooks, I make it a point to work with the top professionals of the industry,” she said. Here are some ideas of what you’ll learn to cook in one of her two classes this July, which are titled Indian Tandoori Grilling (July 16) and Fragrant Feast: Indian Vegetarian Menu (July 21 and 28). Chicken Kabob: This wedding and party staple can be made with lamb, beef,

or chicken, using a very simple seasoning of fresh ginger, garlic, garam masala, green onion, cilantro, and serrano chile. “As soon as you mix it up, it’s ready to go,” said Sahibzada, who’ll divulge a secret for getting the chicken extra moist, so even novice cooks are sure to please their guests at their next summer barbecue. Mint Chutney: In this sweet, tart, and refreshing condiment, ingredients

such as lemon juice, mint, cilantro, and salt are easily fused into a dip or dressing using a yogurt, sour cream, or mayonnaise base.“It can go with any Indian meal you are having,” Sahibzada said. Saag Paneer: This Punjabi item and restaurant favorite will be presented in three easy steps: making the base sauce of sautéed onions, ginger, and garlic with mild spices; boiling the spinach with garlic, salt, and serrano; and adding the paneer, or Indian cheese, to the spinach for a final simmer. Basmati Rice: Using whole spices and fresh herbs, Sahibzada will share tech-

niques for what she refers to as “the most flavorful rice on earth.”

With each dish and class, Sahibzada looks forward to sharing her passion for food and cooking in a welcoming space.“Food in any form creates a lovely bonding environment, and I love to be a part of that kind of setting and atmosphere,” Sahibzada said. “People are relaxed, happy, excited, and enthused, and it is great to interact with that side of people.” — Rebecca Horrigan To sign up, see tinyurl.com/indiancll.

Legends

The theme for the 2016 parade is “Legends”. All over the world there are extraordinary and fantastical stories that were once believed to be true but have been relegated to the realm of legend. These legends often involve magical, mysterious creatures such as “Nessie” and “Big Foot”, or superhuman beings such as Robin Hood and King Arthur or mystical lands such as Atlantis, El Dorado, Camelot and Shangri-La. And of course, there are urban legends, musical legends and Hollywood legends. This is sure to be a legendary parade that will reignite your imagination and wonder.

“ Pa s s t h e H a t ” E n s e m b l e

Watch for the colorful Solstice Sun in a Top Hat!! It’s a legendary mash-up featuring leprechaun surfers, surfing skeletons a la Day of the Dead. Calaveras are created by Mexican artist Carlos Cuellar and Lisa Thomas. Every year, the Pass the Hat float raises funds that go directly to helping us put on the parade. These funds help pay for our team of talented costumers, mask makers and carpenters who all work together to create the magic. We buy a ton of supplies and try to do all of it locally! If you love the parade, keep your eye out for the Sun, it will appear during the middle of the parade. Give us a High 5 by dropping $5 or whatever you can contribute into the hat. Hats off to you, our community, for helping us make this happen every year!

e keep it traditional, but we give it a local twist,” says Mike Norris, owner of 805 Boba, describing his shop’s spin on the classic Taiwanese beverage, which consists of tea mixed with milk or fruit and the tiny tapioca pearls known as boba. “I go to the farmers’ market without any direction and just kind of wander until something looks good,” explained Norris, who each week creates simple syrups from his latest finds to use in the drinks. Past picks have included dates, lavender, and mulberry. Hailing from San Diego, Norris opened the shop in DecemDecem ber when he realized that Santa Barbara was lacking boba options. “It’s fun, and it’s differdiffer ent,” he said. “There’s a ton of variety. It’s something that the town needed.” The giant chalkboard menu features smoothies, slushes, teas, milk teas, and coffee drinks, which can all be fully customized with jellies, syrups, and strawberry and/or brown honey boba. He uses coffee from Santa Barbara Roasting Company to concoct a delightful coffee-boba combination that tops brown honey boba with espresso. And the Kokomo smoothie, a seriously satisfying concoc-

Tenure: Ann Addis and her husband, Craig,

opened Metropulos in 2004, inspired by their culinary journeys. Celebrating their 12th anniversary this year, the beloved Funk Zone eatery is the byproduct of market trips to Spain, Italy, Greece, and beyond, which inform their handselected imports.

Résumé: Addis is constantly reinventing the

wheel on family recipes, inspired by her Italian and Greek heritage. Named after her Greek father, Metropulos, the marketplace offers a culinary sampling of her favorites, from housemade baklava to Greek pastitsio and their infamous gyros. “Food is passion and love and art and memories … it evokes so many things,” said Addis.“My art is my food; that’s where the simple art of eating came from.” Dish she digs: Their stellar empanadas are

wrapped in a flaky pastry crust with housemade chimichurri sauce. Created by Chef Roberto Soria, the beef and chicken include sautéed fresh ground beef or chicken breast, with minced onions, garlic, oregano, cumin, paprika, and chili flakes. Or try the veggie empanada with sautéed spinach, eggplant, and red and green bell peppers. “I couldn’t do what I do without Roberto,” she said.“He takes my ideas and turns them into amazing dishes.”

The scoop: As a former executive at EF Inter-

national School, Addis was inspired to create a community marketplace, highlighting daily specials and imports from around the world. From tofu noodle salad and báhn mì to moussaka and Chicago beef sandwiches, the restaurant offers a passport of flavors.“If you are a good cook, you can learn any cuisine,” said Addis. To eat well, it doesn’t need to be complicated.”

SAMS 2 U CLOSES: Reader Ted tells me that a

sign has been posted at Sams 2 U at 5979 Hollister Avenue in Goleta stating that they are closing. I am told that Sam has been there for almost 11 years. A message to patrons reads: “To our dear customers: It has been a pleasure knowing and serving all of you special customers for many years. Due to the economy we are closing on June 24. We regret ending your long-standing support and friendship with us at Sam’s 2 U. We appreciate your patronage and it was fun getting to know you over the years. We wish you all the best and will always remember these good years. Thank you, Sam’s Family.” LITTLE KITCHEN OFFERS LUNCH: A new

late-night restaurant named Little Kitchen, partially by and next door to the Wildcat Lounge, opened in May at 17 West Ortega Street, the former home of Nardonnes La Famiglia Pizzeria. The menu, originally only available FridaySunday, 11 p.m.-2:30 a.m., includes Southwest Chicken Tikka Masala, Loaded Pub Fries, Bangkok Street Fries, a Philly Cheese Steak, Bánh Mì Sliders, French Toast Bites, a Brioche Breakfast Sandwich, and Cheeseburger Egg Rolls. But coowner/manager Grace Austin now says it is open for lunch, Tuesday-Saturday, 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m., in addition to the late-night weekend hours.

reader Mike: “I tried a new item at The Habit in Goleta today. You can now order your burger Santa Barbara–style. Basically it is a double char with cheese but on toasted sourdough and has avocado. I went ahead and got one with the addition of bacon and enjoyed it. It’s listed on their website so I’m expecting it’s at all locations.” LAPLACE WINE BAR: Reader Paul tells me

that a “coming soon” sign has appeared at 205 Santa Barbara Street for Laplace Wine Bar & Shop. A message on their Facebook page offers a description of the business:“The vision of Laplace Wine Bar & Shop is to offer both the novice and impassioned wine lovers a chance to relax in an old world setting with a glass of wine in hand … perhaps to inhale the teasing aromas of Herbs de Provence or to taste something that beckons a sense of place. Henceforth, the twofold meaning behind the name Laplace … pronounced as La-pläs but feel free to say it anyway you want!” Call 358-9670. FOURTH OF JULY AT ELKS LODGE: The Santa

Barbara Elks Lodge #613 will host its annual 4th of July Family Fun Fair Celebration at 150 North Kellogg Avenue in Goleta on July 4, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. The patriotic event, which is held in conjunction with hundreds of Elks Lodges around the country, is open to the public; entrance is free, and more than 5,000 residents are expected to attend. Baked goods, hamburgers, hot dogs, and barbecued chicken dinners will be sold for a nominal fee from 11:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The celebration offers something for everyone, including face painting and games for the kids and bingo for the adults. Silent and live auctions will also occur, as will a raffle drawing at 4:30 p.m., with payouts totaling $3,000. Boy Scout Troops 4 and 37, chartered by the S.B. Elks Lodge, will also be earning hours toward their merit badges by volunteering at the Family Fun Fair, assisting in the children’s games, and helping maintain the S.B. Elks Lodge grounds throughout the day.

Ancho Reyes “Ancho” Chile Liqueur: Too often alcohol products meant to be spicy taste as if they were concocted in a lab, as if something completely synthetic got shot into your vodka or whatever. Not so with Ancho Reyes, which is one reason bartenders have had so much fun with it since it hit the market a few years back. Supposedly based on a 1927 Mexican recipe, the key is that it starts with chiles poblanos that have been sun-dried and then macerated in neutral spirits for half a year. We’re talking infusion. The result is a pour about slow burn more than power, with more smoke than heat. The notes of herbs and stone fruit add complexity—this won’t just make your margarita a diabla, but an angelic one. Then get creative, and try it in mixes like old fashioneds. — George Yatchisin See anchoreyes.com.

With 59 tracks, more than 60 artists collaborating, and five and a half hours of music, Day of the Dead Dead, which dropped on May 20, is your summer binge-listening project starting now. The National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner created and curated this massive project for the Red Hot Organization, which has been using top musicians and the tribute-album concept to raise money for the fight against HIV/AIDS since 1990. This sprawling three-CD set mimics a Grateful Dead concert in scale and structure and leans toward the Hunter/Garcia side of the group’s repertoire, with a nod to bassist Phil Lesh and his propensity for sonic experimentation. Bob Weir appears on tracks with Wilco and The National; other selections feature big names from planet indie, such as Lucinda Williams and Courtney Barnett, alongside more obscure but still-worthy artists such as Lucius and Phosphorescent. Mumford and Sons contributes an outstanding and unexpected take on “Friend of the Devil,” and the whole project is remarkably free from space-jam noodling, focusing instead on what’s most interesting about the Dead as songwriters and musicians. This is highly recommended, especially to those who think that their deadhead days are over. You will be pleasantly surprised. — CD

Inspired by time spent in Tucson while friend Michael Blake (author of Dances with Wolves) was dying, this album’s solemn strums, jangly riffs, and locomotive rhythms nail that Southern Arizona vibe. Poignant “Sunlight” presents a musically rambling odyssey with a strong lyrical narrative tethered to Blake. L.A. punk icon Doe duets with New York post-punk royalty Debbie Harry on “Go Baby Go,” a Springsteenian barn burner (circa The River River) recorded after Doe’s X toured with Harry’s Blondie in 2013. Instrumentally resembling latter-day Wilco, “A Little Help” proves haunting, with pinpoints of country twilight throughout. Closer “Rising Sun” captures a melancholy dawn as Doe’s warbling sketches Roy Orbison. Sonically, the cliché, desert-sounding ditty, as a heart-wrenching tale of loss, “Alone in Arizona” makes a sturdy case for this album’s existence. “My heart’s in California. I’m alone in Arizona,” a dazed Doe repeats methodically. By album’s end, you’ll feel the same. — Michael Aushenker

PeoPle Get reaDy “The future is now.” So begins People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy, the latest collaboration between Robert McChesney, a professor in the department of communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and John Nichols, columnist for The Nation magazine. As the subtitle of their book suggests, the authors believe we are well on our way to a perilous future, as technology eliminates jobs and the wherewithal to shape society resides in the hands of a relative few. The problems Americans must grapple with, sooner than later— income inequality, climate change, childhood poverty, immigration, low wage and contingent jobs, militarism — can be solved, but the solutions are all political. And when the democratic infrastructure is weak and loaded with barriers to participation, political culture contracts and base self-interest reigns. There is ample factual evidence that the post-Citizens United status quo is working brilliantly for political and economic elites; it’s not in their interests to expand the democratic infrastructure in the ways that McChesney and Nichols suggest. When the governed are passive, distracted, and demoralized, political and economic elites prosper. People Get Ready arrives at a moment when millions of young folks are becoming politically aware and active, energized by the possibilities articulated by Bernie Sanders. While Sanders’s ideas are not new, novel, or even radical — Franklin Delano Roosevelt proposed a comprehensive economic bill of rights before the close of World War II — they appear so because of how far the country has moved away from the New Deal ethos in the past four decades. Avoiding the bleak future that McChesney and Nichols describe will require a sustained social movement. Addressing extreme income inequality is a paramount first step. As the authors note, “Dramatically lessening economic inequality is required to have a functional democracy; there is no two ways about it.” — Brian Tanguay

Country Come LateLy by Richie DeMaria

INTO THE BRIGHT LIGHTS: “I kind of like to think that I’m a slow-burning person,” said rising country artist Michaela Anne in a recent phone interview. “I knew I was a musician from the time I was a toddler. I felt music deeply, but the whole idea of being a professional musician, I was very slow to come around to. I grew up in a military family; I didn’t know this life existed as an option.” The Brooklyn-raised, Nashville-based singer/songwriter, who plays SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Monday, June 27, at 7:30 p.m., has been compared favorably to legends such as Emmylou Harris and Linda Rondstadt. But though her gifts are obvious, Anne’s worked gradually to put them on full display. This year’s album pronounces a new, more confident chapter in her musical career. Following 2014’s introspective Ease My Mind, 2016’s Bright Lights and the Fame shows the classic country-inspired artist stepping out into the spotlight a little more assertively. The more she has come into her own, the more she is “trying to express the power of knowing myself,” she said. “I’m less shy and more comfortable in life with being bolder, and therefore I feel like musically if you really want to make a statement, you’ve got to put it all out there. It’s really challenging to make a living doing this, so you kind of have to risk it all in many ways.” The touring life, with EASED MIND: Michaela Anne says she gradually the misbalanced rise and arrived upon the confidence and uptempo style fall of hectic hustle and of her newest album. mundane inaction, of lots of people and lots of alone time, has “been a process for me to gain my footing,” she said, but things have evened out since she moved down south. Anne moved down to Nashville to escape the “claustrophobic” corridors of N.Y.C. Though in Nashville genre battle lines are sometimes quite firmly drawn between old and new, rootsy and poppy, with a tinge of celebrity-seeking haunting some of the bigger stages, Anne has felt right at home with her fellow musicmakers and the more intimate indie venues.“It’s really incredible how small it is and how connected it feels,” she said.“It’s such a small community, and it’s great getting to be at a bar and a party or jam with people that have been your heroes, like Dave Rawlings or Gillian Welch.” In a time when country music is more diverse than ever, with musicians seeking to push the genre into unexplored territories, Anne has preferred to take the lyrical and compositional roads more often traveled, one trodden before by the elders and masters of the form. With a sequined shirt that could have been worn by Porter Wagoner, she’s championing a lightly modernized take on tried-and-true methods, and raising country Cain the way the best barroom troubadours would. Songs such as “Liquor Up” and “Won’t Go Down” are big, rollicking numbers, and she admitted the party starters are often harder to write than the heartbreakers. “The songs about going out and having a good time, those songs can be the most challenging. I’ll hear a good, fun George Strait song — I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to write that because I’ll be trying to dig deeper and deeper,” she said. Anne’s not trying to reinvent any wheels or branch out a new microgenre but to sing the torch songs country artists have been burning for decades. For her, meditations on long-standing human struggles are the songs that speak strongest.“I really just focus on the songwriting and writing good songs that people connect to, songs on the same experiences and emotions that human beings have been having for hundreds and hundreds of years,” she said. “A good love song never gets old.” But though the cycle of finding some fame in the bright lights has had its ups and downs, stops and starts, it seems as if Anne is finding a sure footing, and loving every moment. “I hope I get to keep doing what I’m doing n forever,” she said. independent.com

Roadies Cameron Crowe Creates Series About Behind-theScenes Rock ’n’ Roll

Movie Guide

ock ’n’ roll movies are surprisingly few and far between, given our obsession with the lifestyles, excesses, inspirations, and potentially galvanizing and massconnective musical power of the culture. For the latest addition to the slender genre, head to the living room for a voyeuristic visit to a behind-the-scenes new Showtime series, Roadies, which teased curiosity seekers online and now makes its ON THE ROAD: Luke Wilson and Carla Gugino star in Cameron Crowe’s new actual television premiere on Sunday, Showtime series, Roadies. June 26. Who better to bring us backstage than Cameron Crowe, who wrote and directed the In one of its unique twists as a series and dramatic pilot for the 10-episode series? Crowe, a boy-wonder piece, the “show” factor of this saga about putting on a rock journalist for Rolling Stone in the ’70s, moved show — by the fictitious arena-level Staton-House Band into film with varying success, first looking back — comes only briefly, and in the periphery, just before on his own rock-lined past in the 2000 film Almost the end credits roll. The spotlight is on the facilitating Famous and then dipping into the rock-doc biz with crew and their sometimes soap-operatic intrigues. Pearl Jam 20 in 2011. Along the way, Crowe also Carla Gugino appears as the tour’s problem-solving developed a reputation for creating weirdly awkward production manager (who we first meet as she is inter(and, oddly, perversely enjoyable) lemons, such as rupting Wilson’s coital encounter, informing him of Elizabethtown and Aloha. such problems as the rock stars’ nanny hassles), and Ron TV’s Roadies offers a fresh, if hardly realistic, spin on White puts in a game performance as the grizzly, emothe world of rock ’n’ roll mythology, in which the actual tionally fuzzy but gun-totin’ veteran of the game, who rock stars are mostly left out of the narrative except may be more dangerous than his avuncular Southernas vaporous godheads. Working his dramatic designs hippie/sage image suggests. within this ensemble, Crowe’s bad-boy, feel-good touch Young Imogen Poots has an interesting, connective may have found a new medium for which he’s suited; role in the ensemble, zooming around the empty backhe’s created a series that wavers between the easy banter stage area of the Daiquiri Queen Arena in New Orleans and trivial conflicts of traditional television drama and on her skateboard — caught in GoPro-esque subjective the more probing communal overview and human shots — and acting as a confidant and innocent party tragicomedy of Robert Altman’s Nashville (but more taken on as a mascot and goddaughter of the team. the former than the latter). From the realm of the new, corporatizing face of As if to alert us that this is the more open-minded the concert business comes a cool British manager, and censor-free-ish New Television while stoking an who informs this old-school crew, “There is no midold cliché about concert life outside public view, the dle anymore.

a&e | film & TV cONT’D fROm p. 59 The Music of Strangers (96 mins., PG-13) Celebrated cellist Yo-Yo Ma and other artists from around the word discuss their philosophies on music and culture in this documentary by director Morgan Neville. Plaza De Oro The Neon Demon (117 mins., R) Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) directs this thriller about a girl named Jesse (Elle Fanning) who moves to L.A. to become a model. What she finds there are women obsessed with youth and beauty who will do anything to get ahead— even commit murder. Fiesta 5 ahead The Purge: Election Year (105 mins., R) The year is 2025, and police sergeant Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) is now head of security for U.S. Senator and frontrunner for the next presidential election Charlene Roan, who has vowed to put an end to the Purge nights. The government has other plans, and Barnes and Roan must fight for their lives.

Camino Real/Fiesta 5 (Opens Thu., June 30)

The Shallows (87 mins., PG-13) Surfing 200 yards from shore, Nancy (Blake Lively) finds herself in the middle of a great white shark’s feeding ground. To survive and make it back to the beach, she’ll need fortitude, will, and craftiness. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

ScREEningS See p. 33 of The Week for more screenings.

O From Afar (93 mins.; NR) One of the finer recent examples of the sneaky power of minimalist cinema, From Afar is seemingly slow, even meditative, on the surface and in its pacing, yet also lined with tension and questions. Venezuelan director Lorenzo Vigas, winner of the coveted Golden Lion at the 2015 Venice Film Festival, tells the tale of a mysterious older man of few words in Caracas, seeking out the professional “companionship” of poor young males, whose hot-and-cold manipulations suggest the presence of father issues and—chillingly in the post-Orlando era—self-loathing gay angst. With a sometimes almost Robert Bresson-ian restraint, sans music and drawing on subjective camera and deep focus to live up to the title, Vigas’s haunting film manages to be a captivating while somehow contemplative thriller. (JW)

Sun.-Wed., June 26-29, Riviera

O The Lego Movie

(100 mins.; PG)

A lowly Lego mini-figure is mistakenly recruited to help stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together. The nature of Lego is the creation of lands, environments, and worlds, and the true strength of this wacky movie (which screens this week as part of the

Summer Kids Movies series) is the way it keeps breaking walls and entering new dimensions. (DJP)

Tue.-Wed., June 28-29, 10am, Paseo Nuevo

nOW SHOWing Central Intelligence (114 mins., PG-13) Former classmates Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) and Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart) brave shoot-outs, espionage, and betrayal on a CIA mission after reconnecting at a high school reunion.

Camino Real/Metro 4

The Conjuring 2 (133 mins., R) James Wan’s sequel is impressive in unexpected ways. It’s epic long, and it’s got great rock songs, too. Of course it will tingle you a number of times. But it also includes a scary strange interlude in which Patrick Wilson as real-life ghost-chaser Ed Warren strums “Love Me Tender.” This time Ed and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) travel to the U.K. and get caught up in the politics of official skepticism, even after they watch girls levitate, furniture slide, and kids talking with a host of male demons in their mouths. Parts of the film are corny, but Wan is keeping faith in his pursuit of bloodless horror. (DJP)

Camino Real/Metro 4

O Finding Dory (103 mins., PG) Maybe it isn’t one of those sequels that turn out better than the original, but it won’t invite disgrace on the Pixar brand, either. The first half of Finding Dory isn’t funny and goes pretty much where you expect it to—Dory remembers her parents, invites Nemo and Marlin on an adventure, and then gets waylaid. But the second half is all preposterous problems and crazy solutions. An insecure octopus and the voice of Sigourney Weaver help the forgetful blue tang negotiate a fable about trusting her own heart’s ways. (DJP)

Arlington (2D)/Camino Real (2D and 3D)/Fiesta 5 (2D and 3D)

O The Lobster

O Love & Friendship

(92 mins., PG)

Writer/director Whit Stillman’s long obsession with the leisured elite just happens to fit snugly into Jane Austen’s principled ambivalence for the same class, different epoch. In Austen, the dishonorable pursuit of a man with an income is also a raw matter of survival — it’s funny and tragic. Here, in a brilliant hard-edged portrayal, Kate Beckinsale plays the widowed Lady Susan Vernon, a famous flirt who lives on the edge of respectability with a mighty streak of pragmatism driving her toward security. Stillman knows exactly when to be comic and how to expose the dread that haunts a drawing room. (DJP) Fiesta 5

Maggie’s Plan (98 mins., R) The friendly ghost of Woody Allenism, from dialogue cadences, bemused urbanity, and the fizzy fatalism of its retro-Euro-Gypsy soundtrack, hovers over Rebecca Miller’s pleasant enough summer’s diversion, for better and worse. In this circular twist on triangular romance, stubbly scholar/wannabe novelist Ethan Hawke trades his scholar wife (Julianne Moore, with a mangled Marlene Dietrich accent) for young Maggie (Greta Gerwig, whose charming wooden acting style seems less charming here). Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph sneak in some unexpected yucks, but overall, it’s a bit too much and too little. (JW) Plaza de Oro Me Before You (110 mins., PG-13) In this shamelessly romantic but somehow affecting British romantic yarn, adapted by Jojo Moyes from her novel, plucky, rainbow-wardrobed twentysomething (an ebullient Emilia Clark) takes a gig as aide to an affluent quadriplegic man (Sam Claflin, with chiseled good looks and cynical-turnedendearing charm). She also takes on a roller-coaster narrative, with love, castles (really), and fatalistic end games in the offing. A melodrama that mostly dodges the genre’s more groansome shallows, the flick is a fine tear-duct-cleansing agent. (JW) Fiesta 5

(118 mins., R)

In a strange way, The Lobster bears distant kin resemblance to blockbuster franchises of The Hunger Games ilk, of dystopian sci-fi zones where couplings face do-or-die death games in dark, perilous woods. That’s where the comparison ends: This weirdly grim, bizarrely fun, grisly film from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos channels absurdists Kafka and Ionesco in a tale that finds paunchy, deadpan Colin Farrell braving a sadistic matchmaking/animaltransformation scheme, and true love prospects with Rachel Weisz. Sometimes wickedly funny, sometimes just plain wicked, The Lobster gives new meaning to such old adages as “ideal love is hard to find” and “love is blind.” And blinding. (JW) Plaza de Oro

Now You See Me 2 (129 mins., PG-13) It’s fair to say that this sequel is an improvement over the first installment; but that doesn’t mean it’s good. Something smarmy underlies this supposed thriller, using idealistic magicians as protagonists as if magic was more than a flashy con. It wants you to believe this is a more amazing version of Mission Impossible. But the movie is far too smug and flabby. Magic is fake, but magic made for a movie is doubly faked and achieved without any real discipline. Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and the others are flashy, but it’s all spectacle without a point—just another Hollywood franchise. (DJP)

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of june 23 ARIES

CANCER

LIBRA

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “The past lives on in art and memory,” writes author Margaret Drabble, “but it is not static: it shifts and changes as the present throws its shadow backwards.” That’s a fertile thought for you to meditate on during the coming weeks, Aries. Why? Because your history will be in a state of dramatic fermentation. The old days and the old ways will be mutating every which way. I hope you will be motivated, as a result, to rework the story of your life with flair and verve.

(June 21-July 22): My meditations have generated six metaphorical scenarios that will symbolize the contours of your life story during the next 15 months: (1) a claustrophobic tunnel that leads to a sparkling spa; (2) a 19th-century Victorian vase filled with 13 fresh wild orchids; (3) an immigrant who, after tenacious effort, receives a green card from her new home country; (4) an 11-year-old child capably playing a 315-year-old Stradivarius violin; (5) a menopausal empty-nester who falls in love with the work of an ecstatic poet; (6) a humble seeker who works hard to get the help necessary to defeat an old curse.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): To celebrate my birthday, I’m taking time off from dreaming up original thoughts and creative spurs. For this horoscope, I’m borrowing some of the BOLD Laws of author Dianna Kokoszka. They are in sweet alignment with your astrological omens for the next 13 months. Take it away, Dianna. (1) Focus on the solution, not the problem. (2) Complaining is a garbage magnet. (3) What you focus on expands. (4) Do what you have always done, and you will get what you have always gotten. (5) Don’t compare your insides to other people’s outsides. (6) Success is simple, but not easy. (7) Don’t listen to your drunk monkey. (8) Clarity is power. (9) Don’t mistake movement for achievement. (10) Spontaneity is a conditioned reflex. (11) People will grow into the conversations you create around them. (12) How you participate here is how you participate everywhere. (13) Live your life by design, not by default.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “Critics of text-messaging are wrong to think it’s a regressive form of communication,” writes poet Lily Akerman.“It demands so much concision, subtlety, psychological art — in fact, it’s more like pulling puppet strings than writing.” I bring this thought to your attention, Taurus, because in my opinion the coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to apply the metaphor of text-messaging to pretty much everything you do. You will create interesting ripples of success as you practice the crafts of concision, subtlety, and psychological art.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): During my careers as a writer and musician, many “experts” have advised me not to be so damn faithful to my muse. Having artistic integrity is a foolish indulgence that would ensure my eternal poverty, they have warned. If I want to be successful, I’ve got to sell out; I must water down my unique message and pay homage to the generic formulas favored by celebrity artists. Luckily for me, I have ignored the experts. As a result, my soul has thrived, and I eventually earned enough money from my art to avoid starvation. But does my path apply to you? Maybe; maybe not. What if, in your case, it would be better to sell out a little and be, say, just 75 percent faithful to your muse? The next 12 months will be an excellent time for you to figure this out once and for all. Homework: What experience do you deny yourself even though it would be good for you and wouldn’t hurt anyone? Write a note giving yourself permission. Share at truthrooster@gmail.com.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Joan Wasser is a Leo singer/songwriter who is known by her stage name Joan As Police Woman. In her song “The Magic,” she repeats one of the lyric lines 14 times: “I’m looking for the magic.” For two reasons, I propose that we make that your mantra in the coming weeks. First, practical businessas-usual will not provide the uncanny transformative power you need. Nor will rational analysis or habitual formulas. You will have to conjure, dig up, or track down some real magic. My second reason for suggesting “I’m looking for the magic” as your mantra is this: You’re not yet ripe enough to secure the magic, but you can become ripe enough by being dogged in your pursuit of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Renowned martial artist Bruce Lee described the opponent he was most wary of: “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” In my astrological opinion, you should regard that as one of your keystone principles during the next 12 months. Your power and glory will come from honing one specific skill, not experimenting restlessly with many different skills. And the coming weeks will be en excellent time to set your intention.

complaints lodged by the public against the organization. Now would be an excellent time for you to have a fool or ombudsman in your own sphere, Sagittarius. You’ve got a lot of good inklings, but some of them need to be edited, critiqued, or perhaps even satirized.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn journalist Katie Couric is a best-selling author who has interviewed five American presidents and had prominent jobs at three major TV networks. What’s her secret to success? She has testified that her goal is to be as ingratiating and charming as she can be without causing herself to throw up. I don’t often recommend this strategy for you, but I do now. The coming weeks will be prime time for you to expand your web of connections and energize your relationships with existing allies by being almost too nice. To get what you want, use politeness as your secret weapon.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): No pressure, no diamond. No grit, no pearl. No cocoon, no butterfly. All these clichés will be featured themes for you during the next 12 months. But I hope you will also come up with fresher ways to think about the power and value that can be generated by tough assignments. If you face your exotic dilemmas and unprecedented riddles armed with nothing more than your culture’s platitudes, you won’t be able to tap into the untamed creativity necessary to turn problems into opportunities. Here’s an example of the kind of original thinking you’ll thrive on: The more the growing chamomile plant is trodden upon, the faster it grows.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “The water cannot talk without the rocks,” says aphorist James Richardson. Does that sound like a metaphor you’d like to celebrate in the coming weeks? I hope so. From what I can tell, you will be like a clean, clear stream rippling over a rocky patch of riverbed. The not-really-all-that-bad news is that your flow may feel erratic and jerky. The really good news is that you will be inspired to speak freely, articulately, and with creative zing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The royal courts of Renaissance England often employed professional fools whose job it was to speak raw or controversial truths with comedic effect. According to the Royal Shakespeare Company, Queen Elizabeth once castigated her fool for being “insufficiently severe with her.” The modern-day ombudsman has some similarities to the fool’s function. He or she is hired by an organization to investigate

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Every now and then you may benefit from being a bit juvenile, even childlike. You can release your dormant creativity by losing your adult composure and indulging in free-form play. In my astrological opinion, this is one of those phases for you. It’s high time to lose your cool in the best possible ways. You have a duty to explore the frontiers of spontaneity and indulge in I-don’t-give-a-cluck exuberance. For the sake of your peace-of-soul and your physical health, you need to wriggle free of at least some of your grown-up responsibilities so you can romp and cavort and frolic.
