2016 Election Endorsements

The Illustrated Life: The Beauty of Not Knowing (sometimes)

Part thrEE

Here is the final installment of The Independent’s 2016 Election Endorsements. To see the rest of our endorsements, visit As always, we urge you to vote, whether you agree with us or not.

Carpinteria City Council: Fred Shaw and Wade Nomura Carpinteria City Council incumbents Fred Shaw and Wade Nomura gently manifest what the whole nation would like to see in politicians. Shaw is an avid volunteer, nature lover, and community activist with passionate ties to what’s morphed into the Democratic Party machine; Nomura comes more out of the Chamber of Commerce tradition with ties to the Republican Party. Both have deep roots in their respective communities. Both are widely accessible to all. And both are deeply enmeshed in the marrow of Carpinteria. It’s hard to ask for much more.

Measure B (Bed Tax Bump): Yes Given the county’s mounting needs and costs associated with mental-health care and infrastructure repair, voters would have to be crazy not to approve Measure B. It’s been 26 years since the county last amended its bed tax rates. The money collected goes into the general fund, meaning the supervisors can vote to spend it on the needs they deem most pressing.

President, hillary Clinton U.S. Representative, 24th District

Salud Carbajal

Of all the races in this year’s election, it has been the most difficult to decide among the candidates running for the water boards in Goleta and in Montecito. Our endorsements might mystify some as they do not follow traditional coalitions, but we believe they will bring a mix of new energy and skills to work with seasoned incumbents. We think that together they will put the common good before all else.

Goleta Water District: Challenger Bob Geis served 26 years as the county’s auditor-controller. He brings an independence of judgment and keen analytic mind to the table. He served as chief financial agent for the County Water Agency—which holds the contract for Lake Cachuma with the federal government—invaluable experience for the tough times ahead. Smart, tough, and hardworking, Lauren Hanson and Bill Rosen helped stabilize and professionalize the district. Under their leadership, Goleta’s residential customers have learned to conserve the most and use the least. Vote for Geis, Hanson, and Rosen. Montecito Water District: We are endorsing one candidate each from the rival camps vying for two seats, incumbent Charles Newman and Tobe Plough. Newman is a liberal Democrat—and attorney—backed by his party’s machine; Plough is a conservative and a boardmember of COLAB. Despite their political differences, they sing the same tune: more long-term planning, more recycled wastewater, and a deal with the City of Santa Barbara to share desalinated water. Appointed to the board 15 months ago, Newman has pushed for all of the above. Plough, though a relative newcomer to water board issues, has been actively engaged in community affairs for nearly 40 years and is smart and professionally steeped in the minutia of the bureaucratic permitting process. Plough ran on a slate with Floyd Wicks, an experienced water-industry executive. However, Wicks’s current work as a consultant makes for a potentially contentious situation—the very thing this district does not need. We have confidence that Plough and Newman will bring the responsible, civic-minded determination to work together and to help direct the current board toward achieving a long-range vision.

NEWS of the WEEK pau l wellm an photos

by Kelsey Brugger @kelseybrugger, Keith hamm, tyler hayden @TylerHayden1, and nicK Welsh, with Independent staff


news Briefs LAW & DISORDER Late in the day on 10/16, County Jail deputies found Hector Higareda, 38, unresponsive after he apparently hanged himself using bed sheets in his single-person cell. After failed life-saving measures, he was pronounced dead about 45 minutes later, at 5:22 p.m., according to the Sheriff’s Office. Higareda, who had served four months of his yearlong sentence for false imprisonment charges, was expected to be released in December (as inmates usually serve half their time). Higareda’s death was the second in County Jail this year and the eighth since 2011. A former Cottage Hospital supervisor pleaded not guilty 10/14 to charges of forgery, embezzlement, and grand theft of more than $200,000 from a medical staff association. Pamela CochranEscalante was released on her own recognizance but was ordered to not incur debt, spend money beyond basic living expenses, and to provide the court with detailed weekly accounting of all her transactions. Leading up to the arrest, CochranEscalante had set off red flags earlier this year when she quickly retired in the face of a pending IRS audit. She faces up to five years in state prison.

UNHAPPY cAMPER: Richard Paluch, longtime RV dweller, wondered whether the City Council would next decree, “That person is too fat; they’re blocking my view of the beach.” The new RV ban was justified based on size of the vehicle, not the conduct of the inhabitants.

Size Matters Council Adopts Citywide Ban on RV Parking


by Nick Welsh fter 15 years of attempting to regulate where RV dwellers can and cannot legally park, the Santa Barbara City Council voted unanimously to ban all RVs from parking on any city street. Likening past enforcement efforts to “whack-a-mole,” councilmembers adopted an entirely new legal approach based on vehicle size. This approach, they hope, will effectively inoculate them against all but certain lawsuits alleging bias and discrimination based on income and status.“We don’t really care about what’s going [on] inside the vehicle,” declared City Attorney Ariel Calonne. “What we care about is the mass of the vehicle.” Under the new law, no mention is even made of RVs; instead, it refers to “Oversized Vehicles,” defined as anything longer than 25 feet, wider than 80 inches, and taller than 82 inches. City police say the presence of RVs in neighborhoods ranks as the number one “quality of life” complaint they receive. But the new law is strategically silent about the economic status of the occupants or their behavior. Instead, the issue is couched as traf traffic safety. City streets, built 90 years ago, are too narrow to accommodate wide-rumped vehicles without causing visibility and maneuverability issues for oncoming motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists. For one hour, Calonne delivered a crash course detailing the past 15 years of enforcement frustration, including three lawsuits filed by Homes on Wheels on behalf of RV dwellers. He also outlined the growing impatience of the courts with municipal efforts

to run the homeless out of town. Although many critics in the council chamber made it clear they thought his whole strategy was a ruse to disguise just that, Calonne pointed out that City Hall has spent $46 million on various programs to help the homeless since 1991. “The image of wealthy Santa Barbara putting the jackboot of authority on the necks of the homeless sells papers,” he said, but was at odds with objective reality. For example, he noted how the New Beginnings Safe Parking Program currently provides nighttime parking spaces for 115 four-wheeled “homes” throughout the South Coast. The program emerged out of one of the many lawsuits brought by Homes on Wheels. Kristine Schwartz, who runs that program now, asked the council to help her figure out “what to tell our clients [about] where they should park during the day.” Schwartz predicted that the new law will result in a lot more tickets that won’t be paid. When the vehicles are towed, the occupants, she said, would wind up on the streets or worse. Many speakers testified the new ordinance was necessary to make the roads safer. Others demanded any evidence linking traffic collisions to the presence of RVs on city streets, prompting one ordinance supporter to demand,“Do we have to have someone die to say there’s a safety risk?” Councilmember Cathy Murillo sought to soften the effect of the new ordinance by demanding greater funding so the Safe

Parking Program could be expanded: “These regulations will make life difficult for people who already have very difficult lives.” No vote on additional funding was forthcoming, but the council did support the creation of an ad hoc subcommittee to explore ways to expand off-street parking options for people living in their vehicles. Deborah Barnes, a longtime homeless service activist working to stop the ordinance, lamented the criminalization of the homeless, prompting Calonne to object, “We’re not criminalizing anything. This is a parking ticket.” The new ordinance will go into effect when 323 street signs, costing $75,000, are posted throughout the city. City Hall also has to adopt procedures for issuing temporary permits for oversized vehicles, with a limit of no more than 10 days out of every 90 days. Lastly, Calonne outlined a new process by which individuals with handicapped placards can apply for city permits to determine whether an oversized vehicle had been properly modified. This provision elicited heated opposition from Peter Marin, a homeless rights advocate for nearly 40 years, who vowed to sue the city.“You’re pushing it here,” said Marin. “You’re really pushing it.”

A UCSB soccer player was arrested 10/4 for assault with a deadly weapon and reckless driving after almost backing over a campus parking officer who was putting a wheel clamp on his car. According to the Daily Nexus, when second-year student Sam Strong (pictured) witnessed the officer setting the clamp, he quickly got in his vehicle and attempted to drive away, narrowly missing the officer. Strong was later located on campus and arrested. Strong reportedly had several unpaid parking tickets totaling approximately $600. He was booked in County Jail and has been suspended from all athletic competition.

cItY Santa Barbara High School students and alumni were outraged last week after the student government announced the upcoming homecoming dance theme would be “Jungle Fever,” a derogatory term used to describe a nonblack person’s attraction to a black person. Last Friday,

Fifth Attias Victim Dies





ert Levy, the only one to survive of the five people struck by mass murderer David Attias’s car in Isla Vista 15 years ago, died this week at age 42. His cause of death remains uncertain, but Levy’s mother, Shary Levy, said she suspected a seizure was involved. Since being hit by Attias’s car, Shary said her son experienced one to two seizures a year. Attias, then an 18-year-old with a history of serious psychiatric problems and drug abuse, plowed his car into a weekend crowd on Sabado Tarde in Isla Vista in February 2001, killing four and seriously injuring Bert. Bert, then 27, was about to leave the United States for Thailand to teach English and was visiting Isla Vista to say good-bye to his sister, Ruthie, a student at Santa Barbara City College. She was also one of the four slain in the killing. Attias — who was captured on film screaming,“I am the angel of death!” upon exiting his car— car was found not guilty by reason of insanity. He was sentenced to the Patton State psychiatric facility, from which he was released into supervised treatment in 2012. For Bert Levy, the road back was long and difficult. Both his legs were badly shattered, and the brain damage he sustained affected his memory and other cognitive functions. He lived in San Francisco in the same apartment complex as his father, and in recent months he worked at his father’s law firm, handling administrative tasks.“He was fast and accurate,” said his mom. “He kept up with professional sports, especially the Raiders and the A’s. And he kept up with politics and was my own political advisor.” Levy’s mother said her son never remembered the attack itself and that for several weeks, the family and doctors kept that information from him. At a certain point, she said, he had to be told what happened. “After that,” she said,“his mind really cleared up.” — Nick Welsh

Jail Correcting Health-Care Fail?


wo weeks ago, the Sheriff’s Office received three bids from correctional health-care providers to possibly replace Corizon Health Inc. —which has overseen medical care for 20 years in the Santa Barbara County Jail — when its contract expires next spring. Last fall, the county supervisors ordered the sheriff to open a bidding process after mental-health advocates revealed a grim picture of health care in jail over the course of several hearings. NEW PROVIDER? County Jail officials are considering two Corizon, which is widely health-care bids in addition to current provider Corizon’s and reputed to be the country’s have added mental-health staff. largest provider and has been sued countless times nationwide, applied to renew its contract. The other bids came from California Forensic Medical Group — the state’s largest provider and recently part of a $1 million settlement in Santa Cruz after an inmate committed suicide behind bars —and Tennessee-based Correct Care Solutions. Both have sought to replace Corizon as other sheriffs’ departments faced expiring contracts. According to Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Kelly Hoover, the winning bid will go before the Board of Supervisors in late November or early December. Last week, the county supervisors approved the hiring of six more full-time mentalhealth nurses and extended the contract psychiatrist’s hours. These new staffers will cost the county’s contingency fund $265,000 for the remaining six months that the contract is in place with Corizon. As part of the contract, new medical staff will oversee a plan to prevent— prevent whenever possible — inmates from being placed in safety cells; otherwise, they are required to assess those inmates within an hour and then every four to five hours. In a grim report of the jail last year, a third-party inspector found inmates were held in safety cells —“small windowless rooms with rubberized walls [with] a pit toilet in the floor”— floor” for days at a time, on a repeated basis “with no access to mental health treatment.” The new medical staff will also dispense prescription medication to inmates, a task that has increased by 236 percent from a three-month time period in 2015 compared to that window in 2016, according to the department. Last week, a new Field Poll showed 66 percent of California voters strongly supported local governments’ allocation of funds for mental-health services, but just 11 percent favored building more jails. — Kelsey Brugger pau l wellm an fi le photo



Going Nuclear with Noam Chomsky

Activist Luminary Chats in Advance of S.B. Appearance cou rtesy

by Brandon Fastman


ou don’t need to have a brain the size of Noam Chomsky’s to figure out that, with 4,650 nuclear weapons in the U.S. arsenal alone, humans have created a very efficient means of destroying themselves. But when Chomsky, as he does in his most recent book, identifies nuclear war — along with environmental catastrophe—as one of two “dark clouds … threatening decent survival of the species,” you might as well listen. Chomsky, the linguist whose theory of a universal grammar revolutionized his own academic discipline and changed the directions of many others (including psychology, philosophy, literature, and anthropology), might best be known as the single most indefatigable bulwark against the American imperial instinct. Ever since penning a 1967 essay called “The Responsibility of Intellectuals” in the New York Review of Books, excoriating fellow scholars for dishonestly rationalizing the Vietnam War, Chomsky, a self-proclaimed anarchist, has been speaking and writing about the injustices of U.S. policy, at times putting his career on the line, all the while publishing books faster than most of us fire off single email messages. On October 23, he will visit Santa Barbara to address the dangers of nuclear weapons at the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation’s annual Evening for Peace before participating in a symposium the following two days. A couple of weeks ago, Chomsky chatted over the phone with The Santa Barbara Independent to explain why the nuclear codes aren’t just a rhetorical device for scaring voters away from the Republican candidate running for president. Following is an edited version of our conversation.

In your book Who Rules the World? World?, you say that the threat of nuclear war is increasing. Can you tell our readers why? It’s not just my personal position. It’s a widely held position among the leading specialists. William Perry, for example, is one of the most respected figures in the national security establishment, former Secretary of Defense, a specialist in nuclear issues. He’s actually warned that the threat

is greater now than during the Cold War. The doomsday clock of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has been moved to three minutes to midnight, which is as close as it was 30 years ago when there was a very serious war scare. This is by no means abstract, and the threats are building up at the most dangerous point in the world, right at the Russian border. NATO [the North Atlantic Treaty Organization] expansion has gone up the Russian border. Both sides are increasing their military expenditures, improvement of nuclear weapons systems, and engaging in pretty adventurous actions near the border that even just by accident can lead to explosions. [Nuclear conflict] has come dangerously close in the past, and it looks quite threatening now. So I think there is merit in the opinion of leading specialists that this threat is quite serious and expanding.

Is it a concern that Russia is trying to reassert itself as an international power? Reasserting itself against what? U.S. domination of the world? It’s been the dominant power since the end of World War II and alone since 1991, [after] the fall of the Berlin Wall. So Russia is reasserting itself but in its own region. The

CAUSE initially called on Board of Sueprvisors chair Peter Adam, who coowns Adam Brothers Family Farms, to initiate a hearing, but he and the other supervisors had not done so. CAUSE received pushback from the agriculture industry and others who thought their portrayal of horrid working conditions in Santa Maria was painted with too broad of a brush.

Obamacare Enrollments Are Up; Premiums Even Higher

t a time when the Affordable Care Act has emerged as a key difference between candidates vying to represent Santa Barbara in Congress —Republican Justin Fareed calls it a “legislative boondoggle,,” while Democrat Salud Carbajal insists it should be tweaked but retained— retained enrollments are gradually increasing while premiums are going up more sharply. According to Covered California spokesperson James Scullary, premiums are increasing on average by 15.8 percent in the tri-county region, while enrollments in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties increased by 2,000, bringing the grand total to 29,400. “Shopping matters,” Scullary stated, noting that the lowest-priced option—with the same benefit level—saw a rate increase of only 7.6 percent. That’s still higher than the increases of the previous two years, 5.1 and 4.4 percent, respectively. A major impact of the Affordable Care Act in California has been a sharp increase in the number of individuals enrolled in Medi-Cal. Before the Affordable Care Act, MediCal was restricted to people making 100 percent or less than the federal poverty level; under the new provisions, it’s now 138 percent the federal poverty level.

Noam Chomsky cont’d from p. 11 conflicts today are not on the border of Mexico and Canada.

What about China? In the case of China, it’s reasserting dominance in East Asia, which it has traditionally dominated for millennia. In fact, the expansion that is threatening conflict with the United States and some neighboring countries is in the South China Sea, but the major Chinese expansion is westward. Chinese strategists understand very well that on the ocean side, they are partially hemmed in by hostile powers, the ring that goes from South Korea south through the Philippines, U.S. bases in Okinawa, Japan, and South Korea. What did you think about the Obama administration’s deal with Iran to curtail its nuclear program? The deal with Iran wasn’t perfect, but it was a positive move. There was fundamentally no sound reason for strong objections to Iran’s [nuclear] programs. Of course nobody wants another nuclear power, but it wasn’t a threat really. The agreement that was made does eliminate any possibility of Iran developing nuclear weapons within the reasonable future. And it does much more significantly open the opportunity for Iran to be integrated into the global system from which it’s been excluded. President [Hassan] Rouhani the other day at the UN quite properly complained that the U.S. Treasury Department is improperly intimidating European banks and others, preventing them from moving to closer financial and commercial relations with Iran to help it break out of its isolation. The Republican Party particularly is a serious barrier to integration. Thomas Wolfe lampoons your theory of universal grammar in his latest book, The Kingdom of Speech. Did that bother you? If you take a look at his Harper’s article [an essay version of the book titled “The Origins of Speech”], there was one paragraph that was accu-

rate. The rest was either fanciful or outright fabrications and slanders. The one paragraph that was accurate was a quote from me. We did have a telephone conversation in which I explained to him why what he was claiming just didn’t make any sense. And one paragraph remained. It was where his pièce de resistance is this Amazonian language, Pirahã [which does include recursion, one of the distinctive features of human language identified by Chomsky]. What I pointed out is that speakers of this language learn Portuguese perfectly. They have the same language faculty that we have. The universal principles that are proposed—including recursion, which he doesn’t understand — are about the language faculty. They are not about languages. To take an analogy—it’s very explicit in the papers he refers to—suppose you are a biologist studying binocular vision in humans and you find a tribe somewhere where people wear a black patch over one eye so they don’t use binocular vision. It’s of no use to biology. … That basically ends the discussion.

I thought the fact that he paints you as someone who doesn’t leave the Ivory Tower was ironic since you are very engaged in the world. That’s what really bothers him. The main thing is his attack on politics, and that’s fabricated, too. He makes it look as if it’s all just fun and games. Anyone who is involved knows that’s not the case. You quote Ernst Mayr in the beginning of your book Hegemony or Survival. He points out that there’s a negative correlation between a species’ intelligence and its length of survival. Where do you see hope for us? A lot of the activism of young people is impressive. I was surprised by the Sanders campaign. I think it revealed that substantial sectors of the population could offer serious ways out of serious dilemmas. n

Punched for Being Gay? Alleged Hate Crime Occurs on State Street


by Kelsey Brugger

ne recent Tuesday evening, Richard Schiwietz strolled down State Street, arm-in-arm with a male friend, when a man approached them. The man flipped him off and yelled, “Faggot! Your mother’s a whore!” Schiwietz recalled. Schiwietz, who is 64 and openly gay, told the man to stop. But the man refused and instead cried, “You say one more word, and I’m going to coldcock you,” according to Schiwietz.“Try it,” he replied. That he did. “He punched the side of my head and knocked my glasses off,” Schiwietz said. His friend, Saul Lerma, tried to intervene, but a moment later, the guy ran off. “Stop! What are you doing?” Schiwietz yelled. “Get back here!” “He was running away, and I just thought, ‘Hell, no,’ ” Schiwietz said in an interview. He ran after him, chasing him through the De la Guerra Plaza and nearby alleyways, winding up at World Market’s back parking lot, where the man yelled other vulgarities, including one aimed at a black cashier. Shortly after, the police showed up and arrested the man, whom they told Schiwietz is known to law enforcement. Later identified as John Savala, the 54-year-old man was booked into County Jail on a $50,000 bail. He posted bail a week later. After an investigation, District Attorney Joyce Dudley plans to charge Savala with a felony hate crime. The case, scheduled to be in court this past Tuesday, was continued. Jeff Sanger, Savala’s public defender, could not be reached by press time. This was not Schiwietz’s first encounter with homophobia. “By myself, sometimes walking down State Street, waiting on the corner for the signal to change, someone rolls down the window and yells ‘faggot’ or ‘fag.’ It’s astounding.” Yet in his 15 years living in Santa Barbara, Schiwietz, who manages a Montecito estate and works as a caterer, has found the beach town a very comfortable place to live. “As a gay man, I’ve found it to be a liberal town, a very accepting town. There’s really not an issue among my peers.” Since that night, his friends have asked him, “Are you sure? A hate crime in Santa Barbara?” When asked, Dudley said the investigation and prosecution of hate crimes in Santa Barbara was rare. “The more difficult question is how often do they occur [but are] not reported?” she asked rhetorically. Dudley

explained the prosecution must first prove the battery charge and then prove “the reason they did it was because of the hate.” The last hate crime prosecuted in Santa Barbara County Superior Court occurred in 2011. Ryan Zietlow-Brown was sentenced to 22 years in prison last year after he stabbed a black man multiple times in the forehead with scissors on State Street in that attack. Asked about experiences with homophobia, Schiwietz said,“I’ve dealt with that all my life,” he said.“I chose not to be angry about it and just realize it is other people’s ignorance.” Towheaded and spectacled, Schiwietz grew up in Buffalo, New York. At a young age, his peers called him “queer” just because he looked different, he recalled. He now realizes those kids probably had no idea what the word meant; he certainly didn’t. When he got older, his first gay experiences were in basement bars, he said. “I remember thinking wouldn’t it be nice if we could all go to the same place together? Well, I believe that’s what’s happened. We kind of got where we wanted. On the other hand, it’s nice to be with your own kind of people who understand exactly where you’ve been … That’s been sort of taken away except for little functions.” Asked what kind of punishment he hoped Savala faces, Schiwietz could not say with certainty. He considers himself a compassionate person but believes Savala should be held responsible for punching him, which left him with a black eye, a ringing in his ear, and dizziness. He expressed satisfaction Dudley had increased the charge to a felony. In the hope of making State Street a safer place and to honor Schiwietz’s courage, Pacific Pride Foundation hosted a gathering at De la Guerra Plaza Tuesday evening, near n the crime scene.

Mobile Home Park Sale Triggers Uncertainty


n late September, tenants at Tropical Garden Mobile Home Park received a letter from their new landlords, La Cumbre Management Company, which said, “At this time, there will be no significant changes in the operation of the community.” But after Don Donaldson sold the trailer park last month for $5.8 million, some residents saw the letter as the writing on the wall. Unknown owners behind the new Tropical Gardens Santa Barbara LLC bought the property from Donaldson, who declined to comment. What will happen to the Eastside trailer park—just blocks from the ocean and home to about 90 residents who pay affordable rent on a month-to-month basis—remains to be seen. Though a mobile home park has not been developed in Santa Barbara for 20 years, the possibility exists as long as the mobile home ordinance is followed. “We could speculate all day,” one tenant, who requested anonymity, said of the property’s future. “It wouldn’t be far-fetched to pull out the trailers and rent the space to people who own [their own mobile homes].” He explained Tropical Garden is “not [really] a mobile home park” because the trailers must be maintained. Everything included, he pays $1,000 a month. Most residents own their units next door at Flamingo Mobile Home Park, which has been on the market for much of this year. Attorney Steve Penner, who represents Flamingo owner Elizabeth Keeter, declined to say “one way or another whether there is or isn’t a pending sale.” A change of use (such as development) would trigger a dislocation allowance, proper noticing, and a public hearing. As for Tropical Garden, “All this could be bulldozed in a week,” said the tenant, pointing to the park’s 50 trailers, barely humming on Tuesday afternoon at about 5 p.m. “Quiet as a — Kelsey Brugger mouse,” he added. “This is your working [class].”

Dollars and Community Sense


community cross-section gathered Tuesday evening as the three candidates vying for two seats on Carpinteria Unified School District’s five-member Board of Education offered their knowledge of the district’s funding structure, its connection to parents and students, and how, moving forward, they would prioritize the district’s roughly $23 million annual budget. Spending roughly $8,300 per student—much less than the state average—the district faces challenges associated with 68 percent of its 2,300 students categorized as “disadvantaged,” burnt bridges between its existing board and the community, and differences of opinion on a dual-language immersion program that’s been put on hold until next fall. While candidate Maureen Foley Claffey is looking forward to immersing her young daughter in bilingual education, ballot rivals Gary Blair and Rogelio Delgado were more cautious, the former concerned with cost and community interest, the latter preferring to wait for performance results from nearby districts that have the program already underway. All three candidates were supportive of recruiting highly qualified teachers and keeping them in Carpinteria with competitive paychecks. Delgado in particular laments that more than 20 teachers have left for better pay in Santa Barbara and Ventura during the past 18 months alone. A native speaker of Spanish with two daughters in the district and one alum, Delgado added that of the three candidates, he could best reach out to fellow Hispanics, the ethnic group comprising roughly three-quarters of student households in the agriculturally rich beach town. Blair, a retired Santa Barbara Superior Court executive officer who oversaw a multimillion-dollar budget, pointed out his strengths as a number cruncher and — with twin daughters at Carpinteria High — said he would also be a Title IX advocate. Foley Claffey placed emphasis on “scouring the budget” for wasteful spending and marking it for disposal. She also pledged to work toward “an immediate change in the philosophy” of the board, which longtime observers say has grown increasingly disconnected from students, teachers, and families. In related news, after months of impasse, the existing board and the teachers union have settled on a one percent salary increase, retroactive to April of this year.

3rd District Supervisor

HartmaNN airport cont’d from p. 17 shuttle down to Los Angeles for the more affordable fares, as studies show, who is filling those planes? Wealthy tourists and rich residents, Johns said. So who does the airport truly serve? To increase competition, which would drive down prices and make our airport a viable option for middle-income earners, Johns and her team are constantly trying to entice new carriers to come and to bring in more routes. In addition to American’s Dallas connection arriving in June, Alaska started a second daily flight to Seattle that same month. Passenger counts this September were up more than 10 percent from the year before, Johns was happy to report. It’s a battle getting airlines to notice you, said Johns. “Keep in mind, there are 400-some-odd airports, and everyone is fighting for the same things,” she said. “It’s very competitive.” Like other directors, Johns regularly attends “speed-dating” events where cities deliver 20-minute pitches to airline executives. Some hand out T-shirts and gift bags — anything to stand out. It’s all about which cities can make the airlines the most money in the shortest amount of time. Usually, that means the largest hubs. Ultra low-cost carriers such as JetBlue, Frontier Airlines, and Allegiant Air have been tough for Santa Barbara to catch and keep. They’re mostly concentrated on the East Coast and find it difficult to turn a profit with regional West Coast trips. Frontier and Allegiant both came and left in recent years. Now, Santa Barbara is actively courting Southwest, which recently upset the balance of power at the Long Beach Airport to the benefit of travelers. It’s also in discussions with a lost-cost Canadian carrier.

In the meantime, the airport has partnered with Visit Santa Barbara to develop a minimum revenue guarantee program, wherein South Coast business and tourism leaders create a pot of cash that would be available to airlines if the revenues promised by a new route were not achieved. For airlines to even take notice, this cushion fund would need to hold $500,000–$1 million.“Air service recruitment is no longer just a “city” function or an “airport” function,” said Visit Santa Barbara’s Janega-Dykes, whose organization has launched a number of nation-

wide ad and branding campaigns in recent years.“It’s a community responsibility.” Such a cushion fund paid for by nongovernmental organizations and private businesses has met with mixed reviews in the larger Santa Barbara community. (Under FAA rules, city and county governments can’t directly contribute money toward the program.) Kristen Miller, president of the Goleta Chamber of Commerce, thinks it’s a great idea. But she conceded she was initially irked by it.“Why should I have to pay for something that I used to just get?” she remembered asking herself, but then she emphasized, “The world has changed.” If Goleta needs to invest $500,000 to grow businesses, given how huge of an economic driver the airport is, “That seems very reasonable to [the Goleta Chamber],” said Miller. Ken Oplinger, head of the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce, is more lukewarm on the idea, given the response he’s received from business leaders so far. “I’ll be honest; a lot of people are saying they’re not sure they want to invest in this,” he said. Most Santa Barbara companies simply don’t have the $25,000–$50,000 to spare. In other cities where the program has worked, larger corporations helped foot the bill. Still, Oplinger remains optimistic some kind of creative solution can be hatched. “We’re working on it,” he said. Even if this particular strategy doesn’t pan out, the airport is scrambling on other fronts to find savings and generate more revenue, explained Councilmember Gregg Hart. It recently renegotiated its debt with the city, and sold an eight-acre piece of property to Direct Relief International for $8.7 million. Those funds are being reinvested in the construction of light industrial facilities on airport property. That market is hot right now, said Hart, since Santa Barbara’s gentrification has done away with many of those workspaces. Lastly, the old Tracor Aviation building on Fairview Avenue, currently leased by Wendy McCaw, will soon go back on the market. “That will be a big moneymaker,” said Hart. Travelers can help, too, said Johns. When they can, they should fly out of Santa Barbara, as every ticket, parking spot, and burger purchased at the airport ultimately benefits the shared community asset. “Check us out first,” she said. “Give us a chance.” n

All That’s Wrong In Politics & My Plan To Shake-Up The Status Quo By Justin Fareed, Congressional Candidate for California’s 24th District Seat

Career politician Salud Carbajal and his Washington puppet masters have been falsely attacking me, and I’m here to set the record straight. Here’s the truth: Carbajal and his insider cronies are doing their best to frighten voters along the Central Coast with scaremongering and television ads, hoping they won’t look at where I actually stand on the issues. I have more faith in the wisdom of the residents in our communities. Carbajal and his pals seem to think that putting my picture onscreen next to Donald Trump is enough to win them this election. This is a tactic straight out of a self-interested career politician’s stale playbook: ignore the truth, sling mud and hope that deceptively edited ads will scare you into voting the way they want. This is the politics of yesterday. Stale. Let’s be very clear, I’m running for Congress to bring a strong voice for the Central Coast to Washington, to stand up and do what’s right, and to lay the foundation for a better way forward for all Americans, including all genders, ethnic backgrounds and political affiliations. The ads my opponent and the political machine are running paint a very different picture. Perhaps, they should take a look in the mirror. Carbajal supports the dangerous Iran nuclear deal with the largest state sponsor of terrorism, and the Administration’s decision to give them hundreds of billions of dollars. The Iranian regime is noted as one of the worst among civil rights for women, the LGBT community and minorities. As your congressman, I will fight for women’s rights and ensure everyone is treated equally. It is the law and my opponent is using outdated campaign tactics to divide our communities. These misleading ads ignore crucial context on my plans to fix our health care system. Yes, I want to replace the Affordable Care Act, with its taxes, penalties and mandates, because California women and their families are seeing increased premiums, skyrocketing deductibles, and less choice available to them. I support a replacement plan that puts women and their doctors back in charge, that ensures those with preexisting conditions are not denied coverage, guarantees men and women are treated equally by insurance companies, and ensures women have coverage for preventative and maternity care. Voters are tired of the same old politics of yesterday. This presidential election is a distraction from the issues that matter most. That’s bringing strong Central Coast values to Washington, to get Congress working again for the American people and to fight for a better future for all Americans. Lawmakers who do their due diligence and think independently when coming to policy solutions that affect the future of our nation are the exception, not the rule anymore. While Carbajal continues to hide behind deceptive ads and the deeply entrenched political machine, refusing to talk about concrete solutions and the topics that matter, I’ll continue to discuss these issues and more with voters across the district. Throughout the course of this campaign, I’ve discussed and laid out three key reforms that I will push for, as your representative, in order to marginalize special interests like the ones behind my opponent’s campaign and shake up the status quo politics working to the detriment of our nation’s future. Reform the Budget System. In the past 43 years, Congress has only allocated taxpayer dollars on time once. This inefficiency has recklessly allowed critical programs to go unfunded or underfunded, while continuing investments in failed or inefficient programs that do not yield a return for the taxpayers. It is imperative that we solve this issue, first and foremost, by pushing for a biennial budget system that allows for better management and oversight of taxpayer dollars. Doing this will not only foster a more thorough evaluation of the programs our nation is supporting, but it will also increase transparency and allow taxpayers to better hold their legislators accountable for poor investments, taking the power away from special interests. Once we know which programs are working and which are not, we can begin to reduce spending, make programs more efficient, and reallocate funds to investments that help advance our nation. Rein-in Regulations & Implement Sunset Policies. Within the first six-years of Barack Obama’s presidency, 194 major regulations were imposed by his administration on the private sector and for the first time in 35 years, business closures in the United States outnumbered business openings in 2015. From healthcare mandates to overtime pay hikes that don’t make sense economically, the damages caused by these new rules on small businesses have been and will continue to be devastating. I was raised on the Central Coast helping my family build a small business from the ground up. I’m now Vice President of that business and understand what it’s like to try to grow a local start-up under the burdens imposed by Washington bureaucrats who have never signed the front of a paycheck. In office, I’ll rein-in these excess regulations and fees by supporting policies like the REINs Act and implementing sunset rules that require all regulations with significant economic impacts to be brought before Congress for an up or down vote. This will restore congressional authority over regulatory matters and reduce the role of special interests, ensuring the voices of the people are heard above all else. Single-Subject Rule. A significant amount of the partisan gridlock we see in Congress today stems from legislators who try to add in unrelated policies to critical bills. These policies are often pushed by special interests and are one of the main reasons why advancements in our immigration, healthcare and other systems cannot be accomplished. To solve this, I will advocate for a single-subject rule that forces policy makers to address issues on a step-by-step basis. Through this reform, we can increase transparency, reduce the influence of outside groups, and ensure that every part of an issue is being fully addressed. A single-subject rule will also increase the efficiency of our federal approval process by locating the key areas of disagreement while allowing other needed advancements to progress. Through these bipartisan reforms and true servant leaders, we can begin to get our country back on track, shake up politics as usual and end the culture of cronyism and mudslinging that Carbajal and the Washington elites backing his campaign are fighting so hard to protect.

No Good Dog Goes Unpunished

Again? A presidential candidate for one of the two major parties of the most powerful nation on planet Earth is defending himself against multiple allegations of sexual assault by claiming his accusers were too ugly for him to attack? Maybe I’m not dreaming, but I’d like to wake up. By the time most voters go to the polls, it’s anyone’s guess whether the number of women BIRDS OF A FEATHER? From left, Roger Ailes, Donald Trump, and Bill Cosby claiming they’d been attacked by Donald Trump — now at 16 — will exceed the number of women for scrutiny, too. And am I the only one to find it interesting who’ve come forward to accuse alleged date rapist/comedian that the server of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was just Bill Cosby. That number is 60. Lost in the din of Trump’s tele- severed by the government of Ecuador, where he’s holed up? vised admission that he can grab women wherever he wants Closer to home, we have our own Wendy P. McCaw, owner and get away with it is his link with the now-disgraced Roger and oligarch-in-chief for the Santa Barbara News-Press, Ailes, the psychosexual predator whose dark genius gave rise staunchly marching to the jabbering music of the one-man to Fox News. Ailes was among Trump’s key advisors until band playing in her own head. To the extent perversity qualidozens of former Fox employees recently came forth accusing fies as individualism, McCaw gets the Ayn Rand medal of him of sexual harassment. Even though Ailes qualified as the honor. I say that because McCaw and the News-Press have goose that laid Fox’s golden eggs, his behavior proved suf- endorsed Trump for president. Contrary to what MSNBC’s ever-smirking Rachel Maddow proclaimed the other night, ficiently egregious that even Fox had to cut him loose. It’s worth noting that among Trump’s many accusers is his the News-Press is not the only daily newspaper to endorse former wife Ivana Trump, who claimed under deposition Trump; it’s one of only two. Bizarrely, the other daily to go he violently raped her after he’d underwent an unsuccessful down the Trump sinkhole also happens to be a “News-Press,” scalp-reduction surgery at the hands of her plastic surgeon. only it’s from St. Joseph, Missouri. Unlike our version of the Trump was allegedly enraged by the results, yanked out fistfuls same, the St. Joe paper went to the bother of writing an editorial of Ivana’s hair, pinned her arms to her side, and then forced explaining the convolutions of its thought process when arrivhimself inside her. During divorce proceedings, it should be acknowledged, husbands and wives say all kinds of things about each other that turn out not to be true. It should also be acknowledged that Ivana has since characterized this behavior as something other than rape. Trump’s reaction: First, he denied ever having had the surgery in question. Of the surgeon who allegedly did not perform the surgery, Trump had this to say: “He is a guy that is an unattractive guy.” Sound familiar? Republicans are learning the hard way that when you go to bed with dogs, you wake up with fleas. The shock and outrage now expressed by many in the GOP is a case study of too little, too late. In Santa Barbara, Republican congressional candidate Justin Fareed sought to distance himself from Trump’s radioactive fallout by announcing he’d never, in fact, endorsed the man. Yes, actually, Fareed did, but mostly by implication rather than affirmation. Fareed, however, was conspicuously silent about all the many outrages Trump committed prior to the hot-mike moment when Trump boasted of sexually predatory behavior. A few prominent Republicans did stand up to Trump when it mattered — John Kasich comes to mind — but only a few. If Fareed was not among them, he was hardly unique. With the mass repudiation of Trump now in full swing, we can all feel good about ourselves for having dispatched the ogre under the bridge. T.M. Storke, rolling in his grave Lost in the noise of moral self-congratulation, however, is much curiosity about the ing at a conclusion that cannot be justified.Wendy P.’s essential WikiLeaks dumps on Hillary Clinton. The leaks, though existential posture to the universe, however, has always been hardly a revelation, remind us how cozy Clinton is with Wall “talk to the hand,” and she hasn’t deviated for Donald. No Street and how infinitely calculated her every gesture. Clin- explanation is offered. Efforts by this paper and many others ton’s response has been to question the authenticity of the to contact the News-Press have been swallowed up by an ocean documents. Their release, she said, is all part of a Kremlin of silence, indifference, and contempt. It’s easy to speculate conspiracy to elect Trump. Maybe. Or maybe Clinton, like what a newspaper that wastes no opportunity to denigrate Trump and his tax returns, should simply release her own immigrants seeking to better their lives as nothing more than documents to the public. It’s undeniable that Clinton has been “Illegals”— as the News-Press insists on doing — might find in the target of a vast misogynistic conspiracy. But it’s also the Trump, who famously started his presidential bid charactercase her passion for secrecy — at times Nixonian — is cause izing Mexican immigrants as “rapists,” a kindred spirit.

Mostly, it makes me really sad. Santa Barbara used to have a decent daily paper; now we have a ghost. Yes, it has some solid, conscientious reporters working there, but under McCaw, the News-Press dove down the garbage disposal of total irrelevance headfirst. The Meltdown that so infamously engulfed what was once upon a time one of the most powerful, significant newspapers in California took place 10 years ago. (But for the intercessions of former News-Press owner T.M. Storke, Franklin Delano Roosevelt might never have gotten the Democratic Party presidential nomination back in 1932.Without Storke, UCSB never exists, nor does Lake Cachuma ever get built.) Even if you know all the facts, it’s impossible to explain what happened to the News-Press — just that it did. In the past 10 years, Santa Barbara, like anyone residing in a haunted house, has been forced to learn to live with its poltergeists. There was a brief flurry of talk about a Halloween protest in front of the NewsPress — an exorcism of sorts — in response to the Trump endorsement. But the organizers quickly gave it up; what, after all, would be the point? In the meantime, political debates have emerged as the national bad drug of choice. In Santa Barbara, elected officials of both parties have reported playing a drinking game in which a shot is taken every time Republican candidate Fareed says “systemic change” or “moving forward.” At this rate, serious liver damage could be inflicted and Fareed could be declared a public health risk. To be fair, Fareed is forced to seek refuge in such boring buzz-speak, because what he truly believes about gun control, abortion rights, and fracking puts him violently at odds with so many voters. This puts him at a serious disadvantage with his opponent, Carbajal, who would be well served by telling voters less frequently how he served in the Marine Corps Reserves. News-Press’s Wendy P. Okay, we get it. for Donald T. Maybe that’s why Fareed felt such urgency to post Instagram photos of himself at this past weekend’s Stand Down event in Santa Maria, where about 600 down-on-their-luck veterans got shaves, haircuts, meals, new boots, pet care, and access to about 90 mental, dental, medical, and other service providers. Fareed is shown wearing a volunteer’s T-shirt. In the accompanying text, he states, “Enjoyed helping make this happen today.” I got contacted by an irate volunteer at the same event, who complained Fareed “didn’t lift a finger.” I spoke with County Supervisor Steve Lavagnino —who for the past five years has made the Stand Down event such a massive success — who stated Fareed was definitely not one of the event’s 600 volunteers, nor did he announce he was coming. Volunteers, he said, are trained what to do in advance and carefully assigned. “You can’t just volunteer the day of the event,” he said. Two attendees told me they saw Fareed schmoozing the crowd. I contacted Fareed’s campaign for comment. Fareed, in turn, contacted Lavagnino. He told Steve he’d been told the event needed volunteers, showed up, signed up, was given a volunteer T-shirt, and was asked to greet vets. Lavagnino said he has no proof that’s not true but remains mystified as to how it happened. Politicians on the campaign prowl are tolerated, he said, but just barely. In the future, he said, they could be banned entirely. Carbajal and 3rd supervisorial district candidate Bruce Porter — both veterans — also attended. Both, however, kept low profiles. Carbajal did post a photo on his Instagram but made a point to credit Lavagnino for putting on such a great event. As Fareed likes to say in his TV commercials, “We’ll talk more later.” In the meantime, I’ll have another shot.

Clayton H. Klakeg, M.D. 03/31/20-09/12/16

Clayton H. Klakeg, M.D., peacefully passed into heaven at age 96 following a brief illness. The firstborn and only son of Norwegian immigrants Knute and Agnes (Folvik) Klakeg, Clay was born March 31, 1920, on the family farm in Big Woods, Minnesota. He was reared in Fargo, North Dakota, but spent many summers on his grandparent's farm, speaking only Norwegian and building a strong work ethic and love of animals. His intelligence, academic strengths, peaceful demeanor, and gentle temperament laid the foundation for him to become a bright, compassionate individual and doctor who cared deeply for others and the welfare of his patients. Due to the lack of finances, Clay was not encouraged by his family to pursue his desire to become a doctor. Times were challenging during the Depression; yet he persisted, engaging in a variety of jobs and work experiences in the days when there were no scholarships. Known for often quoting, "Another day in which to excel", Clay excelled in accomplishing his desire to achieve his medical degree and more. His first two years of collegiate education began in 1938-1940 at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. He transferred to North Dakota State University where he excelled by receiving his Bachelor of Science in 1942 and then his Bachelor of Science in Medicine the following year in 1943. Clay continued to excel and received his medical degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1945. Clay's medical internship was completed at the Medical Center in

OCTOBER 20, 2016

Jersey City. He then earned the rank of Captain while serving as a flight surgeon for the Army Air Corps from 1946-1948 during World War II. "Captain Clayton Klakeg" was a lot to say! Following his military service Clay joined the Veterans Administration Hospital staff in Fargo, North Dakota, from 1948-51. Clay then joined the Mayo Foundation in Rochester, Minnesota, and excelled as a Fellow in Medicine and Cardiology. While there he also completed his Master of Science degree in Medicine and Physiology at the University of Minnesota Mayo Foundation in 1954. Board certified in both internal medicine and cardiology, Clay was elected a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the American College of Physicians, and the American College of Chest Physicians. In 1955 Clay was asked to join the Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara, California, and he continued to practice there as an internist and cardiologist for over 37 years. Clay excelled in solving difficult diagnostic cases and never missed a day of work, retiring at age 72 after serving numerous organizations in various capacities in both supportive and leadership roles. Some of which included serving as President of the California Heart Association, President of the Santa Barbara County Heart Association, President of Sansum Clinic, President and Board member Emeritus of the Sansum Medical Research Foundation, President of Trinity Lutheran Church Council, and President of the American Scandinavian Foundation. Clay was also the recipient of many Meritorious Service, Distinguished Service, and Distinguished Achievement awards and maintained his medical licenses in California, North Dakota, and Minnesota well into his nineties. He not only excelled professionally, but also as an individual. Clay's faith, ethical standards, gentle demeanor, kindness, and generosity were evident to all who knew him. He was thankful to be able to live independently in his own home until his passing. So many things exemplified 'Grandpa Clay': his love of animals(especially cats), his garden and roses, See's candy, morning newspaper comics, puzzles, long walks, plaid flannel shirts, homemade soups and other delicious dinners, drives through the countryside, and summer visits to his Minnesota cottage on Pelican Lake. He will be greatly missed by many, but he has left a legacy of special memories for those who knew and loved him. Clay is survived by his children: Julie Klakeg Crandall, Robert(Jeanne) Klakeg, Richard(Dana) Klakeg; grandchildren: Carolyn(Robert) Crandall Jacob, David(Caressa) Crandall, Leslie(Shane) Klakeg Schroeder, Kevin(Carrie) Klakeg, Hannah Klakeg, Sydney Klakeg; great grandchildren: Layna, Nathaniel, Lydia, and Joel Clayton Jacob, Elliot Crandall, and baby boy Klakeg to arrive the end of this year. Clay was predeceased by his sister/husband Lois(Jim) Johnson and sister Joyce Lindvig, but survived by Andy Lindvig, nieces and nephews, and their children. Clay was a tenor in the choir and faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Santa Barbara for over 50 years. All are welcome to attend a Memorial Celebration of Clay's life on Saturday, October 22, 2016, at 11:30 AM at Trinity Lutheran Church with a reception to follow.

Dorothy Koster Ives

Armando Quiros

Dorothy Koster Ives, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends, on August 31, 2016 after 90 glorious years experiencing and blessing this world with her energy and light. She grew up in Queens, New York, during the Depression, where she attended Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School with her two older sisters, Anna Marie and Anita, and younger brother John. She was very close in age to John (Jack as he goes by) and they would walk together and bring food to the unemployed men at church after school. She was a loving soul, taking care of others from the moment she left the womb. Dorothy’s first job was as a telephone operator during World War II because she could handle complex messages and could read at a phenomenal speed. She treasured being able to connect the men at war with their loved ones. She had an insatiable thirst for knowledge and love for books that continued her entire life. It was in her 40’s, working as an interior designer that she met the love of her life, Burl Ives. She was commissioned to decorate a small apartment he was to live in while working on a movie in California. They married in London in 1971. Together they traveled and toured the world, lived among the quiet hills of Montecito, California for many years, and eventually settled in the quaint community of Anacortes, Washington, with the eagles, the mountains, and the peaceful Puget Sound. Dorothy surrounded her life with beauty and color in all its vibrant hues, and decorated the lives of all those around her as well. She opened her heart and mind to all religions and welcomed all schools of thought for the greater good of mankind. She was a light-worker, a catalyst for peace, and philanthropist to so many charities, foundations, and benefits for the young to the old to the sick to the needy. Dorothy is survived by: her brother John, her son Robert, her step-son Alex, grandchildren: Samantha, Maggie, Katy, Joel, Andrew, Andi and 7 adorable greatgrandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Burl, and two children, Barbara and Kevin. The family wishes to thank Hospice, and so much of the community of Anacortes for their love and support. A celebration of her life will be set for later in the month. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made out to Hospice of the Northwest who took phenomenal care of her in her last months. Arrangements are in the care of Evans Chapel & Crematory Inc., of Anacortes, WA & the San Juan Islands. To share a memory of Dorothy please visit and sign the online guest register.

Armando Quiros died peacefully in his sleep on the last day of July. He left from Serenity House where he was attended by family and many friends. His memorial service was held Aug 4 at Congregation B’nai B’rith, where nephew Mark read Armando’s Ethical Will. Armando converted to Reform Judaism in early 1999 (mid 5759). From age 74 until his death at 90½ he reveled in Jewish celebration, practice, study and Learning, the last few years with his loving companion Sylvia Glass. He embraced the call to be sensitive to ongoing divine revelation and was delighted that Judaism required no abdication of his mind. He had indeed come home. Armando was a pioneering figure in Santa Barbara psychotherapy and counseling. In the mid ‘70’s, as clinical director of Zona Seca, he enlisted Dave D. to start Spanish speaking Alcoholic Anonymous meetings, which are still flourishing today. Not an alcoholic himself, he very much wanted to be remembered as a friend of AA. In the mid ‘80’s he also costarted Depressives Anonymous. He gave a tremendous boost to Spanish speaking psychotherapy and supervised hundreds of interns, along with his own extensive private practice. In ’91 when he joined Klein Bottle as co-clinical director he was starting to notice how many Jewish people were entering his life. Soon after, he met, and soon betrothed Ruth Glater (z’’l), a lovely person, brilliant scientist, talented artist and enthusiastic Learned Jew. They spent many happy years together, loving, practicing, celebrating and Learning Jewishly. Louis Zandalasini, Ruth’s godson, tells how Ruth re-decorated her whole house after meeting Armando. Psychology had come to Father Armando in the mid ’60’s when he was a Franciscan priest at Mission Santa Barbara (he also would say Mass for IHM at La Casa de Maria). That was during Vatican II, and of course there were big differences between the liberal and conservative friars. These were to be reconciled in encounter groups facilitated by psychologists working with Carl Rogers, the developer of Client-Centered Therapy. Father Armando’s life changed forever in his first encounter group. Suddenly he could be more trusting of his inner guide and less reliant on outside authority; more open to the goodness of people and less concerned with Original Sin; and he could believe his experiences rather than received ideology. Armando moved with the Franciscans to the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, but soon moved out of there to reside with others that were counseling those afflicted with the Vietnam war. That was the begin-

Ed — like his father, who was a teacher—would stand up for “the underdog” for the rest of his life. Ed graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Iowa’s Grinnell College in 1953, majoring in philosophy and journalism. He loved poetry and became the editor of the student newspaper. Ed was a student activist a decade before the Berkeley Free Speech Movement.

ning of Armando’s counseling career and the beginning of the end of his priesthood. Throughout his life he was a brilliant pianist and prolific poet. Armando came to Santa Barbara in 1939 to join the Franciscans. He was 14 years old. He studied and taught and Learned at St. Anthony’s. He was a very bright and talented student, very musical and friendly. As he became a priest he observed the contradiction and inhumanity in what he was taught. He noticed many rules and actions that did not have the authority claimed for them. He anguished over his brother’s loving and sincere yet “invalid” marriage, and many other forbidden unions. He struggled with a “just war;” the role of women in the Church; and the divide between clergy and lay people. All that earned him a reputation for being a troublemaker in the Franciscans. When he was promoting encounter groups an old priest said: “Armando has ruined the Franciscans on the West Coast.” He received a reprimand from the Vatican’s Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (previously called the Office of the Inquisition). He could not accept John 8:22 and extensively studied Anti-Semitism as Church policy. He was cautioned against excessive Bonaventurian Centering Prayer. Armando was ordained in 1951. Father Armando left the priesthood in 1974. He felt like his face fell off. Born as Frankie in a poor, happy, proudly Mexican-American family, his name was changed to Armand when he was in seminary and he changed it again to Armando because he was working with so many Spanish speakers. Frankie had 2 older brothers and despite his small size he liked to box with them. He was so quick he could skip in for a couple of punches and skip out before they could reach him. He was also a self-taught reader, learning by begging his family to read the funnies with him. He was soon directed to the dictionary and became an excellent speller. Also in the dictionary Frankie found forbidden words, whose definitions led to more forbidden words, which excited him greatly. This started his love of Learning. He never stopped. A gathering for all who knew Armando is happening at La Casa de Maria 4 to 7 pm on Thurs, 27 Oct.

Sixta Tulia Gomez Mullin 03/31/20-09/12/16

Sixta Tulia Gomez Mullin, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, died on September 7, 2016, in Santa Barbara, California, due to complications from a stroke. Born in Panama City, Republic of Panama, she was the last survivor of 10 siblings, most of whom lived well into their 80’s and 90’s. Sixta used to credit her father’s daily dose of a raw egg and cod liver oil delivered to each child standing in a line for helping them to achieve such longevity. She was 95 years old. Sixta attended the St. Francis Academy in Panama, and she enjoyed a happy childhood, full of pranks and laughter. While at a party hosted by the President of Panama, Sixta danced with an American, Wallace Key Mullin (“Key”). She didn’t know how to dance, but something caught his attention. She recounted that for weeks after the dance, he would drive his car during lunchtime around and around the block where she

lived. Key finally got up the courage to knock on the door and ask permission from Sixta’s father to be able to date her. Permission granted, the happy couple always went out with one of Sixta’s sisters in tow as a chaperone. Years later they admitted that they’d drop the sister off at the movies with popcorn so that they could have some time alone! Sixta and Key got married on July 1, 1944 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in the Canal Zone. They honeymooned throughout Central America. They settled in the Canal Zone until 1946 when the war ended. At that time they took a ship, the “Cristobal,” up to New York and traveled across the United States by train. Key had formerly worked at the Biltmore Hotel in Montecito for 11 years and he remembered the beauty of Santa Barbara. They eventually settled in Carpinteria and operated the Valley Cleaners for a number of years. Sixta had a lovely soprano voice and she enjoyed singing in the choir at St. Joseph’s Church. In 1978 Sixta and Key moved to the San Vicente Mobile Home Park in Santa Barbara where they made many friends and enjoyed countless happy moments. After her husband, Key, passed away in 1987, Sixta remained especially proud of her home, and she spent many hours keeping her garden and house to perfection. Her yard filled with beautiful cymbidiums in full bloom was truly a sight to see! She especially enjoyed decorating her house for Christmas, and with the aid of her friend, Julien Peche, she would proudly put on a grand display every year. When maintaining her mobile home became too much of a challenge for her, Sixta eventually moved in 2015 to the Californian skilled nursing facility in Santa Barbara. While at the Californian, Sixta rediscovered the joy of living and especially enjoyed her bingo and domino games. Everything was put to the side when it was time to go play bingo! She took to wearing a lovely flower in her hair every day, and her “spitfire” ways were endearing to staff and other residents. The stroke she suffered unexpectedly cut short her happy and healthy existence at the Californian. Sixta is predeceased by: Wallace Key Mullin, her husband; Angel Maria Gomez de San Miguel y Paris, her father; Antonia Elena Vallega, her mother; her sisters, Josefina, Maria Elena, Rosa Elvira, Aura, Matilde and Rebeca; her brothers, Julio, Jose Alfonso and Luis; and by her daughter, Sandra. Sixta is survived by her son Ronald Key Mullin (and Cathie Mullin); her daughter Deborah Ann Kay Mullin (and Glenn Reinhart); her grandchildren Scott Mullin (and Kelly Mullin), Timothy Mullin (and Shannon Mullin), and Davis Reinhart; and her great-grandchildren, Marcella, Jameson, Danielle and McKenna. Sixta’s family would like to thank her many friends at the San Vicente Park and at the Californian for the joy and laughter they brought to Sixta’s life. Her family is especially grateful to the Sansum Clinic, Cottage Hospital and Isabel Isaac for their excellent care of Sixta over her later years. And finally, words cannot describe the gratitude the family feels towards Serenity House. The loving staff there helped to bring peace to us all. Sixta has been cremated and her ashes will be scattered in the ocean off Santa Barbara to join her husband. A celebration of life reception will be announced at a later date.

Protect Our Heritage


he beauty of the Central Coast’s natural landscape is unrivaled. With hundreds of miles of trails, crystal-clear streams, and ocean and mountain vistas, people flock here to hike, camp, and more. I’m a Central Coast resident and lover of our outdoors, but I also have a vested interest in preserving these special places for the future. As the president and CEO of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, I have a unique perspective into how much can happen in 100 years. The strength of our collections is in documenting the biodiversity of this region, and some of our scientists have spent more than 40 years, the length of their career, researching these lands. That’s why I support the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act — it’s crucial we take bold, specific steps to protect our public lands and rivers. The legislation will safeguard the ecological future of the Carrizo Plain National Monument and Los Padres National Forest, and it will secure the first wilderness protection on the Central Coast in 20 years. The bill will conserve our wilderness, create two scenic areas, and safeguard our wild and scenic rivers. There’s real urgency to pass the bill because Senator Barbara Boxer and Representative Lois Capps are retiring at year’s end. It would be a priceless gift to future generations and would underscore the valuable contribution these two public servants have made to preserving California’s natural heritage. I urge our congressional leaders to make our public lands a priority and pass the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act. Now is the time to act. [Visit for —Luke Swetland, S.B. the full text.]

Can We Afford I and J?


oters in Santa Barbara Unified School District will have to decide whether Measures I and J, two school bonds on the ballot, merit a “yes” vote, inasmuch as they will add to the long list of school bonds taxpayers are paying for already. Bond taxes don’t just affect property owners; tenants will find most landlords will increase rents to offset the additional expense. Although the school district will state unequivocally they must have the money or

all kinds of bad things will happen, it should be noted taxpayers generously approved $110 million of bonds for the district only five years ago. Where did the money go? Would you believe $18 million of it has been allocated to build a brand-new football stadium, like the ones you see in football-crazy Texas? Did spending the money on this or other projects like this improve test scores or ensure more students are reading or performing math at grade level? Will these school bonds ensure we have effective teachers, principals, and curricula in our schools? Exactly what did

we get for the hundreds of millions of dollars already spent on school buildings from previous school bonds? Since these bonds are guaranteed to increase the cost of housing for everyone in one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S., voters should ask if the money spent is worth the hard-earned dollars wrung from residents, who already can barely afford to live here. — Lou Segal, S.B.

Leo Elovitz Gets the Job Done


uellton is in great fiscal shape. So why is this such an important election? Why is it vital that voters be sure they are voting for councilmembers with our community’s best interests at heart? Buellton had the highest per capita salestax revenue in the county in 2015. In its last budget cycle, our city generated more than $1.7 million through the transient occupancy tax (TOT), or tourism bed tax. Why then does our community have unsafe streets? Many commercial and neighborhood roads do not have sidewalks or adequate street lighting. Our city is not pedestrian or bike friendly. And the long-promised river trail to connect Riverview Park to downtown has yet to be constructed. The city gives 20 percent of TOT to the Visitors Bureau—approximately $375,000— to market our community to tourists.Yet once they arrive, they cannot walk safely between our hotels and excellent restaurants, wineries, breweries, and parks. We have yet to realize a functional downtown to entice retail shop-

ping, which would increase our tax revenue. I am voting to reelect Leo Elovitz for City Council. He has worked hard to fulfill his promise to make Buellton’s finances transparent. He has fought for better communication between city and residents. He has succeeded in setting aside funds for a river trail system and wants to see the same for our eventual downtown. He has worked to develop cooperation between Buellton and Santa Ynez Valley to avoid duplication of tourism promotions. We need a councilmember with Leo’s vision, hardworking ethic, and proven success in making our community better. —Tom Widroe, Buellton

Lompoc Idyll Interrupted


wo years ago, John Linn lost in a landslide to Mayor Bob Lingl in the Lompoc election. Linn is back, running on the slogan “I’m good for business.” Linn is anything but. For five years he has relentlessly pushed a drag-strip/mud-bog/motocross/race oval just yards from pride-of-ownership homes. On top of property value loss, tourists will stay away in droves. Lompoc’s acclaimed wine ghetto will be inundated with obnoxious noise. Skydive S.B. will be displaced. Dragsters replacing parachutists? Dumb. Restaurants and hotels will suffer. The city will lose tax revenues. Most important, it will lose its quality of life. The project’s environmental impact report cites unacceptable levels of air pollution. Just the thing L.A. tourists want to escape.

Children and Families Applaud Jackson


tto Von Bismarck is purported to have said,“Laws are like sausages; it is better not to see them being made.” Thankfully, in our representative democracy, lawmaking is delegated to those with a passion for it. For the past two years, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson has served as the cochair of the Women’s Caucus in Sacramento, leading a group of female legislators focused on issues that are important to women, children, and families. Under her leadership, the Women’s Caucus has advocated for powerful changes in systems and increased services for children and families, and she was undeniably the leading voice in the Capitol for increased preschool spaces in the recent state budget. There are currently 19,000 children ages 0-5 in need of child care in Santa Barbara County. Only 10,155 licensed spaces exist. The disparity is worse for infants and toddlers — only 1,450 spaces exist to serve 9,000 children. Imagine being a parent, facing the need to go back to work after the birth of your child but having no child-care options. I meet these parents, from all walks of life, all the time. Working families need high-quality care in order to work. Children need it to support their growing brains and reach their potential later in life.

Thanks to Sen. Jackson, California will invest another $500 million by 2020 to support more highquality preschool spaces. There is more work to do, and we are thankful for Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson’s leadership on behalf of children and families.

City as Lab Rat


he Priced Out: Santa Barbara’s Housing Crisis forum on October 6 was as interesting for what was not discussed as what was. There was little reference to the obvious root cause of the housing shortage: Santa Barbara’s desirability. Housing shortages are inevitable in such attractive places. The civic-minded are loath to dismiss a problem as insoluble; we are often attracted to schemes that have intuitive appeal, whether or not supported by empirical evidence. For instance, our recently adopted AUD (Average Unit-size Density) program, which proposes to provide shelter for our workforce by way of tiny “affordable by design” rental units. Forgotten is that, given the demand, even diminutive units are quite likely to be bid up beyond the means of local workers. How many units do we have to build before some effect on price levels occurs? Any candid economist will tell you: a whole hell of a lot. It is shocking that our leaders would subject this rare gem of a city to transformative experiments whose outcomes are as likely to be negative as positive. I would love to have our workforce living within the city. However, after 40-plus years of slow-growth efforts —to which we can credit the city retaining its character instead of becoming some crowded Florida-style city —I am skeptical of open-ended, untested construction “incentivization” schemes, which could turn us into something very different. —Joe Rution, S.B.

In 1984, three L.A. gangbangers sent on a contract murder assignment got the wrong house. They killed four members of a family, including the mother of former San Francisco 49ers star Kermit Alexander. Outraged when they escaped the death penalty, he is now pushing Prop. 66. On the other hand, actor Mike Farrell (B.J. Hunnicutt of M*A*S*H fame), authored Prop. 62. Public attitudes are changing, and Prop. 62 might pass and the death machine grind to a halt, although no one’s been executed since 2006. In 2012, voters rejected Prop. 34, which would have repealed the death penalty. If both 62 and 66 pass, the one with the most yes votes would win. Polls are running in favor of the speed-killing measure. As you might expect, the California Democratic Party supports abolishing the death penalty; the Republican Party is opposed. My take: It’s time to get rid of state-sanctioned killing. It does no earthly good and sets a bad example for the youth. There’ll be a debate on the issue on October 26, pitting Santa Barbara defense attorney Robert Sanger against Richard Simon, senior deputy DA in Ventura County. It’s free and takes place at 6:30 p.m. at the Santa Barbara College of Law, 20 East Victoria Street. —Barney Brantingham

griculture has been one of the mainstays

of Santa Barbara County for centuries. It has adapted and changed as the economy and culture of the county have evolved. We are now at a point where outside forces and local policy decisions are adversely impacting agriculture’s viability and future. We have seen the disappearance of dairy farms and cattle ranching. Now thoroughbred horse ranching is in a downward spiral due to offtrack betting and the increase in Native American and Las Vegas gaming. Bay Meadows Racetrack in Northern California is a housing development. The venerable Hollywood Park Racetrack is on its way to becoming a football stadium. In the last century, Lompoc was the seed capital of the world with household names like Bodger and Burpee, and with fields ablaze with color. All of the seed companies have gone—some out of business, the rest overseas due to a lack of profitability. The orchard industry is disappearing due to the concentration of the grocery store industry that needs thousands of cases of any crop they buy. The few remaining small family apple orchards survive by direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales, either through roadside stands or “you pick ’em” operations. When walnut trees reach the end of their productive life, they are not replanted. Recently, olive orchards were planted. However, the county’s prohibition on consumers visiting the olive mill has impacted DTC sales, and olive orchards are stagnating. One bright spot for agriculture has been row crops and hoop-tunnel berry crops. However, external forces are adversely impacting the economics of this bright spot. Federal and California increases in the minimum wage and overtime are eroding profitability. These increased costs will be phased in over the next several years. This will give farmers the time to reduce labor with machines or relocate to other states or countries. It is unlikely consumers will pay significantly more for California broccoli and strawberries. Both the state and federal regulators have continued to restrict the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers.

The result is reduced productivity and blemished fruits and vegetables. Some grocery companies have started to promote “ugly” produce in the hope the public will buy it. The above are not “the sky is falling” rhetoric. This year, increased costs and diminished produce quality caused four Oxnard farmers to cease farming their 2,500 acres with the loss of more than 1,000 jobs. The other bright spot in Santa Barbara County agriculture has been the wine industry. Wine sales generate sales tax and attract visitors who pay bed taxes. However, as the four-plus years of endless planning department meetings have shown, a significant number of county residents object to farming in general and to DTC wine sales in particular. As to farming, the complaints are about lights, noise, dust, and spraying disturbing the peace of the “neighborhood.” On the western border of Lompoc, a farmer has houses on two sides and an elementary school on the other. His property is for sale. As to DTC wine sales, the objection seems to be that visitors destroy the peace and quiet of the neighborhood, even though it is zoned agriculture, not residential. In 1995 there were 1,800 U.S. wineries of which 950 were in California. Also, there were 3,000 distributors — one and a half for each winery. In 2015 there were 8,600 U.S. wineries with more than 4,000 in California. However, in this 20-year period, 2,325 distributors went out of business, leaving just 675 distributors—one for 12 wineries. Four distributors sell 60 percent of the wine to retail stores and restaurants. Grocery stores sell 30 percent of wine to consumers. Distributors and grocery stores want thousands of cases, not a few hundred. Without DTC sales, the small family winery will not survive. Absent positive local support for farming and direct-to-consumer sales, in about a dozen years most agriculture, including small family wineries, will disappear, like their brethren the ranches, orchards, and seed companies. As we all know from the San Fernando Valley, when agriculture is not sustainable it is replaced by housing and shopping malls. n

dug & s n i f f o u t doT this Year 's Win

he people have spoken! The 2016 edition of The Santa Barbara Independent’s Best Of Santa Barbara® Readers’ Poll is here, and, quite clearly, it has Independent gone to the dogs — Dug and Dot Daug to be exact. Inspired by this year’s exceptionally turbulent election season, we have called upon two recently arrived, via Ohio, four-legged residents to help sniff out the best of the best along our little corner of the coast. Old-school fans of democracy, Dug and Dot (the nephew and niece-in-law of S.B.’s most well-known “Angry Poodle”) were ready and willing to roll up their sleeves and take on the hard work of gathering information and being responsible voters. Their investigation into the best that this city has to offer— offer from the restaurants and dog parks to the bars and By Et beaches and beyond— beyond came directly from you, our loyal readers. Thousands of you filled out our ballots online han S or in the paper this past summer, and after some careful counting on our end, Dug and Dot set off to get up-closetewar t and-personal sniffs of the stores and services and assorted open-air experiences that you say make life on the Central Photo Paul s b Wellm y Coast so darn sweet. a & Cai n, Ben Cic Dug and Dot dutifully wrote to their family in the Midwest, regaling them with all the delightful discoveries they’ve cati, tlin F experienced in their adopted hometown of S.B. Their tails have been wagging ever since they got here. We hope the results itch leave you feeling the same way.



Final iSTS!

Drinking Hi, My apologies ahead of time if this letter reads like one big basset hound howl, but I just had a cup of coffee that has the very real potential to change my life. There is a place here called The French Press (1), and, thanks to their fearless leaders, Todd Stewart and Julia Mayer, they do caffeine and coffee shop ambiance ridiculously right. Come, sit, and stay awhile if you can. Really, though, the coffee drinks are just the fuzz on the tennis ball in this town. The options for filling up your bowl are endless. Dot and I could not resist a trip to Lama Dog (2) last week for obvious reasons. But, besides the smack of loa around the name and the loveable Tibetan mastiff that is the tap house’s namesake, this place is a beer drinker’s paradise on the ocean end of the Funk Zone; 20 different taps and a half dozen refrigerators full of bottled options had my tail wagging instantly. More of a craft-cocktail sipper? You just have to get right with big cats and hit up The good Lion (3). Their drink menu rotates weekly and always features a wild and whimsical alchemy of libations with organic fresh-squeezed

locals and wayward owner tourists like us are found at Dave Potter’s place, and it seems his particular grape-juice mixes really help the people have fun. Bring your human here, and watch them get happy. A couple of really great guys named Bryan Hope and Scott Bull take luxury vans of the bipeds out to the Santa Ynez Valley for wine trips. Crazy (12), concept! It’s called Sustainable Vine Wine Tours (12) and they prefer to keep it small and personal. Imagine doing something like this for our kind and hitting the beach! We would be in the biscuits and gravy so fast that it’s making me drool right now. Anyways, sorry for the long trot. As you can see, you have to come out for a visit as thirsty dogs are guaranteed to be quenched.

For saving biscuits and counting coins, montecito Bank & trust (4) has all the perks and powers of a big-name branch but with none of the hassle. The place just smells familiar and friendly to me. No need to howl if you prefer something more international in name recognition; Wells Fargo (5) is practically everywhere in town. Got computer problems? Santa Barbarians head over to macSuperstore (6), a fully licensed independent Apple dealer with area roots. Need human repairs? Johnson Family Dental (7) has been fixing chompers and cleaning up human smiles for more than 50 years. I’m not sure what they could do for me and my tennis ball teeth at this point, but if I ever decide to take on these painful nubs, Dr. Steve and his team will be the people for the job. Dr. Joel Brandt (8) is a family practitioner with a deeply devoted following; the humans love him for his bedside manner and attention to the details of your life. For my taste, however, it is the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine that really helps me turn around an illness or a simple rough spot in my overall health. I have yet to find a more capable and

Yet none of that compares to the whales and the soul-arresting salty odeur of experiencing these huge Bernese mountain dogs of the sea in their natural element. Our day on the Condor expre xpres ss s (4) spent among these animals out in the Channel will forever live in Daug family lore. We had a similar discovery-filled adventure — not to mention one of the best ways to get quickly oriented to the moder n quirks and rich history of this town — with a head-out-the-window tour of S.B. on both land and sea aboard the Land Shark (5). We tickled our karaoke bone at tiburon tavern (6) every Friday night, me handling the Snoop Dogg standards and Dot, as always, doing her Baha Men thing. I never tire of watching her do her “Who Let the Dogs Out” paw-shaking one night in a hot crowded dive bar and then classing up her act tenfold the next night for the latest ensemble theatre Company (7) production at the New Vic or a State Street Ballet (8) show at the Granada. We pulled just such a doubleheader earlier this month with Macbeth directed by Jonathan Fox — nothing like a little blood, greed, and politics during election seaso n to help raise your hackles. continued on p. 59...

However, when the burdens of being a dog become too much, this Ohio hound finds both freedom and some much needed canine companionship by the sea. With a front-row seat for sunset every day, plenty of sand for digging, and just enough wave action to keep it interesting, Hendry’s Beach (9) is hard to beat when looking for shoreline Zen. Butterfly Beach (10) is a close second, but the lack of off-leash freedom technically afforded to us four-legged beachgoers on that idyllic stretch of sand is troublesome to me and Dot. continued on p. 61 ...

When beach therapy isn’t quite right, or we simply can’t find a humanoid to get us there, the riviera theatre (11) has beco me a great air-conditio ned option. With programming cour tesy of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, this tucked-away cultural hub on the hill is nearly as exciting to Dot as a pile of baco n slathered in avocado. She can’t get enough. Lastly, and certainly not least, a note must be made about what happens here at the star t of every August: There are tamales and dancing and tacos and wandering mariachi bands everywhere you look for a week. The town all but closes, humans smash confetti eggs on each other for fun, and horses take over State Street for an entire afternoo n. It is called old Spanish Days (12), and it needs to be experienced to be understood. Next year, I have promised myself, I will go deeper.

Puts everything that’s not true out in plain sight where we can see it. Undoes the damage of haste. Doesn’t settle for premature clarity, short cuts or quick fixes. Restores the rapture of pure movement. Unravels family trauma. Mends generational divides. Rekindles healthy relationships with dismissed body parts. Exposes the dishonesty of a life governed by fear and vanity. Provides cognitive and physical tools that allow us to thrive. Confirms Pink Floyd’s analysis: "There’s someone in my head and it’s not me.” Reduces potential for injury through heightened body awareness. Alleviates physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual confusion. Restores hormonal balance & proper bone rotation. Unlocks closed hearts & minds. Invites the play back into life. Fun. "When we feel restless, bored, or empty despite an outer life filled with riches, the unlived life is asking for us to engage. To not do this work will leave us depleted and despondent, with a nagging sense of ennui or failure. Doing or acquiring more does not quell your unease or dissatisfaction. Neither will “meditating on the light” or attempting to rise above the sufferings of earthly existence. To not do this work is to remain trapped in the loneliness, anxiety, and dualistic limits of the ego instead of awakening to your higher calling." — Robert A. Johnson

Yoga Soup

A space for mature inquiry and deep healing where a staff of experienced teachers and dedicated students create a nourishing community in which unexpected breakthroughs routinely occur. A diverse offering of 70+ yoga, movement & meditation classes per week for all styles, ages and skill levels. Midday Reset: self practice from 2-3 p.m. daily while listening to recordings of riveting spiritual wisdom. Offers prunes, carrots, grapes, tea and ginger candies. Couches and wisdom upon which to rest and ponder. Wide selection of books, original posters & cards, t-shirts, hoodies, musical instruments & eclectic gifts. Massage therapy, holistic health counseling, dense fascia mashing & private stretch sessions. Replaced the coffin with a piano. Confirms Leonard Cohen’s analysis: “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Unique workshops like this weekend’s Mash & Mask, where you’ll mash out scar tissue while receiving an organic face mask! Rests in the acceptance of death & impermanence as the doorway to celebrating life. "She’s fat." — Donald Trump, voicing what most women think about themselves. Instead of further stoning DT for his depraved and pathological cluelessness, let’s thank him for exposing the compulsive neurotic voice in our head that believes the beautiful truth of the human shape is never good enough. From age 8 to 80, think of all the different shapes the human body will assume. To be in love with the ever-changing truth of our shape throughout the unfolding of our life is to know true love and true freedom. That is the unchanging mission statement of Yoga Soup.

continued from p. 65 We ended the day with an easy walk up to inspiration point (5). The 3.5-mile loop of uphills and downhills was a small price to pay for the rubber -necking world-class views of sea and sky that await you at the top. The next couple of days are looking action-packed with no end in sight. I am beginning to realize that this is what life in Santa Barbara is all about — playing outside! Luckily, that is what we Daugs were born to do. We connected with the crew at A-Frame surf shop (6) on the beach at Santa Claus Lane, and they have us completely geared up for getting salty and hunting some legitimate tube time this fall. When it is time to tickle our inner powder hounds, however, mountain Air sports (7), the Duddr idge family operation at the bottom of State Street that has been helping this beach town play in the mountains since 1975, will have us covered for all our ski and snowboard needs. In the meantime, Dot is hitting up the fabled bikini Factory (8) in Summerland for its trademark fitting while hunting for a new two-piece appropriate for her body-by-Schatzle. continued on p. 69...

The weather is never an excuse, the ocean and the mountains are in your bac kyard, and the options for fun seem to be aroun d every corner. kernoha n’s toys (6) has a special att ractio n for all littles — the place is wall-towall with every type of toy imaginable and then som e. There isn’t anything in there that I’m allowed to chew on but my tail get s wagging watching all the tiny humans freak out. A place called peanuts (7) is the go-to place for dressing your kiddos, bu t the store is also a bit of a baby/parenting cultur e hub with weekly classe s and talks. Come for the onesie s and used maternity clo thes, but stay for the discus sio n on breast-feeding. It should come as no sur prise that the daycare facilities for little hu mans also go above and beyond around these parts. By all acc ounts, the san ma rcos parent Child w workshop (8) is a belove d community institution. It turns out that working just as ha rd to support and educate the parents as well as the kids is a wildly popula r formula for full family happiness and growth. Imagine if that caught on around the country? The santa barbara Zoo ’s summer Camp (9) is ano ther crazy cool option for the flesh puppies. The program is a sellout eve ry summer and for good rea son; it is all the fun and games of summer camp set behind the scenes at a zoo!

Riley’s Flowers

continued from p. 97 With your racy little surprise taken care of, a visit to riley’s (2) is next for a proper floral expre ssion of your feelings. They will he lp you build your own sweet-smelling bouquet of love or happi ly arrange one for you — the latter is especially appreciat ed by those of us witho ut opposable thumbs. With flowers and delica tes in paw, the next ste p is making a reservation for a din ner at Belmond el en canto (3). The views fro m atop the Riv iera are the stuff of fai ry tales and the lifeblood of romance. From there, it’s all abo ut the finishing moves and embracing you r inner rock star, som ething that is never hard to accom plish around these pa rts thanks to rockstar Transporta tion’s (4) fleet of rollin g cool. Starting and ending the night with a ride in a long, dark limo is never a bad idea. Want to take the roman ce to the mo on? Save you r coins and biscuits, and bo ok a nig ht at The Biltmore (5) for the ultimate romantic nightcap alo ng the beach in Mo nte cito. This place is a cer tifiable Shangri -La with the singular purpose of pampering you. Go the re, and you will never forget it. In fact, afterward, you may nee d to hit up wild heart events (6) to plan the wedding of you r dreams that is likely to follow. Seriously, if that happe ns (and it truly might), darla Bea (7) needs to be your first phone call for a party deejay. If magic is happening in S.B., sm art biscuits say Darla is spinning the soundtrack.

ALL-AGES FUN: Pictured from left, Lisa Gerr, Zac Colegrove, and Emily Gerr encourage shoppers to touch everything on their shelves.

It’s that time of year again when the tinkling of the black and white keys can be heard up and down State Street, as Pianos on State is in full swing just in time for the New Noise Music Festival this weekend. Folks such as piano teacher Benjamin Ott (pictured) look forward to this time every year, for it’s an annual opportunity to show off their skills. “Anytime I get to play in public is always a great time,” said Ott. And this Thursday, October 20, at 3 p.m., The Santa Barbara Independent will be live-streaming ALO frontman Zach Gill from one lucky piano via our Facebook page, sbindependent. Tune in!

isa Gerr has a simple rule for her employees—play. “You’re basically a camp counselor now,” she tells them. “I want you to work with these parents; let them breathe a sigh of relief.” And if a kid picks up a toy? “They should say, ‘Yes, you can bounce that in here’ and ‘Yes, you can Hula-Hoop that there,’ ” said the owner of the brand-new but old-school Santa Barbara Toy Company on State Street. “I want a real toy store; I want to people to think of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.” Maybe it hasn’t reached that spectacular height yet, but it’s a refreshing addition to town that has long supported its educational toy store with the famous stuffed bear. Our town hasn’t had a place on State Street where kids can browse the latest playthings since Tom’s Toys left in the early 2000s — unless you count the Game Seeker on the corner of State and Cota, which Gerr also owns.“This is our new little cousin,” she said of the new spot. You can feel Gerr’s love for games as she wistfully describes growing up in a home where Sunday meant the roast was on and the game boards were out. (Guillotine, Quiddler, and backgammon are her favorites.) But the Toy Company shares just as much of her heart. “I put a lot of Lisa into the shopping for this place,” explained Gerr, who also likes to marshal figures about how many families live between Carpinteria and Isla Vista (15,000) and how much each will spend on childish things per year ($400). That combo of passion and economics is winning. From a shelf of old-school novelty items like practical jokes to beautifully appointed dolls and BB-8 robot figures from Star Wars, Gerr’s inventory is both eclectic and quality-minded. My personal test for a good toy store is the inclusion of Pustefix bubble formula for giving kids and hippies something pretty to do in a park at a party— party and there it is. There’s also a shelf of classic books both Golden and Seussian. Gerr has plans for beefing up her stock and reaching out into the neighborhoods. She has a small costume rack, with a larger supply in storage, and hopes to connect customers with her neighbors at Halloween. She’s exploring relations with the new Children’s Museum down the street, too. You can tell she gets happy when a kid picks something up in the store, and it’s not just the ka-ching cash register kind of glee. “I’m definitely one of those people who thinks that families that play also stay together,” she said. —D.J.

r textiles’ raoul

Family-Woven Quality


pon entering Raoul Textiles, tucked in amid the tasting rooms and railroad tracks where lower State Street hits the Funk Zone, it’s hard to discern if you are stepping into an art gallery or a home. A mixture of watercolor paintings and tempered photography adorn the textile walls, and the George Smith furniture on the floor is decorated with Nigerian mud-cloth pillows and draped alpaca blankets. It’s a living room meant to be lived in, not only looked at. Indeed, everything about Raoul points to home — accessible yet artistically sophisticated designs, products entirely handmade, and a family-run business. The Raoul story begins 35 years ago in a Quonset hut, where Sally McQuillan and her husband, Tim McQuillan, began block-printing T-shirts and selling them on the beach in 1981. Her designs soon captured the attention of Nike, Quiksilver, and Billabong, which all hired her for contract work. But by 1999, McQuillan had made such a name for herself that she ended those relationships. Eventually, her daughter, Madeleine, and son, Gene, joined the team to help produce the designs that their mother creates. It was an expected transition for Gene, who studied textiles at Central Saint Martins of the University of the Arts London and worked with George Smith furniture, which is now a Raoul Textiles collaborator. For Maddy, it was less expected. “It took me by surprise,” she explained. But, after working in textiles for six years, she loves it. The Raoul textile factory— factory now located on Los Aguajes Avenue, just down the train tracks from the retail store — is the central core of the business, hand-printing about 20,000 yards a year. From there, the fine Belgian linens are displayed in showrooms throughout eight states and eight countries, their first international showroom established in London in the early 2000s. The Raoul facilities double as both retail and workshop, as interior designers or home decorators can peruse the bright hanging collections and intricate swatches of fabrics that reflect historical motifs or patterns inspired by nature. “We have a lot of florals and botanicals hand-drawn,” said Maddy. “[Sally’s] interested in patterns from all over the world— world Asafo flags, Fulani embroidery, Indian paisleys, Hawaiian pareos, French toiles, etc.— and has a unique way of making them work together.”   etc. Raoul Textiles has been featured in many a fashion magazine, so people now come from all over to stop and see the birthplace of such a remarkable company. “When you see it, you recognize it immediately,” said Susan Owens, assistant manager of Raoul Textiles. “Personally, I think our business is exceptional because Sally’s vision is exceptional,” said Maddy. “She’s a genius of color and scale, and I think her ability to be inventive outside of design trends is unmatched. And from Sally’s vision stems a commitment to the handmade, traditional processes evident in the quality produced.” —Sarah Sutherland 136 State Street, 899-4947,

asket weaving is just the latest activity to find a home at the Montecito Library, where beginners and experienced weavers converge on the third Wednesday of each

month. “We’re a busy little library,” said Tatiana Johnson, who supervises this branch of the Santa Barbara Public Library system and also oversees knitting circles, art talks led by the Museum of Art, poetry groups, a New Yorker magazine group, Italian and German conversation circles, and even a Lego club. “It’s not just books.” The basket-weaving class is led by an instructor who will guide you through a brand-new project or help you finish an existing one. Needles and raffia are at the ready as are extra materials for those who need them. There is no preregistration required, and it is open to all ages and skill levels, from beginners to lifetime weavers. “We had an 8-year-old who


made a really cool wicker basket without any assistance really,” said Johnson. “He was really successful.” During a recent class, Carpinteria resident Pattie “Pat” Murdy came with her own basket project already in progress. A chaplain with the Vietnam Veterans of America, Murdy is a fan of the library’s programming, so she decided to stick around for basketry after finishing the memoir-writing class earlier that same day. “It’s a great way for people to come together and make something,” said Murdy. The room that day was absolutely abuzz with enthusiasm and an eagerness to create something out of nothing. “Every day is different. Every day is exciting,” said Johnson. “You might find a great book for them that they’ve been looking for, or you might find a class for them and really make their day that way … [With] the programming that we’re offering, I think we’re connecting the community.” The Montecito Library is located at 1469 East Valley Road, Montecito.

METAL MASTER: David Sheehan creates intricate and whimsical designs for everything from rings to knives in his Mission Canyon home studio.

redeeMed by a dYing art


avid Sheehan’s Mission Canyon engraving studio feels a long way from corporate America. Perched high on a small road of big houses, Sheehan’s upstairs office is where he draws intricate patterns that seem both traditional and freshly minted at the same time. Downstairs in his garage, he turns those drawings into precisely executed motifs, emblems, and flourishes on gold, silver, platinum, and even stainless steel — one of the hardest of metals to hand engrave. The tools of his trade, a “dying art” as he terms it, are both old and new. Though much engraving today is done with lasers directed by software, Sheehan works deep in the metal with his two hands, and each motif is done separately. Aided by computers and microscopes, Sheehan’s hand engraving is done with a blade that electronically vibrates enough to cut into metal, but the hand has to be true. While watching him cut a piece of fine metal, I marvel that his hand never slips.“It does sometimes, but to tell you the truth, I’m more steady engraving than drawing,” he said. Not long ago, the busy engraver was commuting to the big grind down south from this same location, a home he shares with his spouse, attorney Melissa Fassett. “Then one day, four years ago, my white-collar job just ended,” he said.“The whole company was closing down. And at that point, I decided I wanted to do something with my hands again.” He’d been a precision welder when young, but he didn’t want to go that route. “Engraving just

sort of caught my eye,” said Sheehan, who, after a lightning-fast apprenticeship, began engraving bowie knives, Snap-on tools, Harley-Davidson parts, and even personalized pocket knives as groomsmen presents. Today, his clientele includes a world-famous hotelier he can’t name, Cincinnati Reds pitcher Homer Bailey, and others who demand a high level of personalization, though his customers almost always bow to his stylings. “I would say I have 95 percent artistic freedom,” explained Sheehan, who has recently been customizing Rolexes and other models for Bamford Watch Department in London, which hired him for a few jobs after he passed their intense “audition.” The work pays well, and in just four short years, he’s gone from buttoned-up suit commuter to home artisan. “I just sort of fell into this, but I think it was what I was meant to do,” he said.“I thought I was going to be sort of retired, but now I’m busier than ever. But it’s a good kind of busy. I don’t have to go down to an office in Los Angeles anymore. I’m much happier working at home.” See —D.J. Palladino

ddie Gonzalez didn’t set out to change the bicycle culture of Santa Barbara. But with an empathetic ear and a compassionate heart, he’s come to play a pivotal role in laying out our cycling foundation. In October, the California Bicycle Coalition honored those achievements by presenting Gonzalez with its 2016 Bicycle Dreamer Award. Gonzalez has worn many hats at Casa de la Raza. In 2007, his job was managing the community center’s contracts and facilities. “There was always this influx of people with all of these great ideas and possibilities, and my job was to pick out what was genuine, important, and fit with our mission statement,” he explained. When several different people came to him with passionate ideas about cycling, Gonzalez brought them together. He didn’t know it at the time, but the connections he made that year would lead to the creation of cycling resources that benefit thousands of residents today. “The original idea was that we would provide a day where people could repair their bikes for free,” he said. “We literally just set it up on the patio of La Casa de la Raza.” When the line of people waiting to make repairs wrapped around the building, Gonzalez realized there was a deep need in the community. That grew into the DIY bike shop and thrift store Bici Centro. Among the early crew of advocates was Ed France, now executive director of the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition (SBBike). “Eddie has always placed people first,” said France. “He wants to help people. Bikes just happen to be another way for him to do that.” And the timing was right. “Six months after we kicked it off, gas went up almost a dollar,” said Gonzalez. “People came in telling us that if it wasn’t for Bici Centro, they wouldn’t have transportation to work.” Fueled by volunteers, Bici Centro continued to grow, eventually joining forces with SBBike. As a result, Santa Barbara has cycling education, policy advocacy, and expanded access to the DIY shop that started it all. “It’s been a beautiful experience to see people of all backgrounds, ages, ethnicity, and economic class come together to help each other,” said Gonzalez. “Bici Centro has created this culture around giving, friendship, and love. It’s something we need more of in our world.” — Andie Bridges

BUNDLE IT UP: Phyla founder Carolina Law (below) lets you make your own sleek gift basket or choose from existing packages, such as the Forest Roots Bundle (above).


Changes the art oF giFting


hyla is a new online shop based in Santa Barbara that’s changing the art of gifting. Through the website, users can select from a wide range of products to create an entirely unique gift basket or choose one of the site’s specially curated bundles of goods. Phyla founder Caroline Law’s goal is to step away from the “gaudy, over-thetop, tacky gift baskets and move towards a clean, modern aesthetic.” Consequently, Phyla’s selected products reflect a bright minimalism, for Law “wanted to put together something beautiful and crisp and succinct in its presentation.” Beyond the visual appeal, Phyla supports independent makers and sustainable production, and it donates to nonprofit organizations with each sale of a premade bundle. “It’s nice when the caring and gratitude that comes with giving isn’t at conflict with what it is that you’re giving,” said Law. “Because if you’re just giving a cheap, massproduced item that has actually done some harm in being produced, then there’s a lack of congruity there that is disruptive. “I like making choices that promote a more beautiful world in my own life, and I know that those choices aren’t always possible or practical,” she explained. “But choosing to give exceptionally beautiful and meaningful gifts that support the kind

of world that we want to live in is one of the simplest and best things we can do.” We asked Law to suggest bundles best suited for the different kinds of people in your life, and here’s what she advised. For a coworker? The Untamed Bundle. The untamed bundle includes, among

other items, “delicious dark chocolate from Oakland” and some great cocktail mixers.“The idea of it being ‘untamed’ is perfect for a coworker, for it’s a nice way to encourage them to enjoy themselves on the weekend and to relax,” said Law.

For your significant other? The Green Glow Bundle. For a gender-

neutral option especially, the Green Glow Bundle is a great choice. Among other products, it includes “a really good green tea, a strainer to brew it with, and this beautiful handcrafted tea scoop from Ojai.” For a friend? The Good Host Bundle.

“One of my favorites is the Good Host Bundle,” said Law.“It’s got beautiful linen napkins that are made in Portland, along with just a little bit of everything. It’s a nice all-around gift for somebody that you know enjoys entertaining, and also to help them build the kind of pantry that would allow them to feel more comfortable doing it.” See

A PresidentiAl PleA from A friend

Dear Sensible Voter,

You’re receiving this message because someone who cares about you and respects you is terrified that you’re going to vote for Donald Trump. Which you have every right to do. But this friend or family member knows you to be a reasonable human being. Not a conspiracy nutter, white supremacist, or the sort of female-phobic media patsy who’s been gleefully gulping Fox News’ Hillary-Is-the-Antichrist puddin’ for nigh on 20 years. No, you’re smart. And though this election is hideously contentious, this person wouldn’t dream of fighting with you. In fact, they want you to better understand them. So, do them the solid of hearing them out for three minutes, will you? It’ll help them sleep better. Then—do as you must. Okay, so they totally see the appeal of an outsider who doesn’t play the stupid political game and refuses to kowtow to Washington. Who doesn’t love a straight shooter? Who isn’t tired of political correctness? Hillary Clinton seems scripted and dispassionate — at best robotic, at worst calculated. But surely you realize that someone who doesn’t give a flip what anyone thinks of him … also doesn’t give the puniest frack about you. He hasn’t devoted his life to service; he’s devoted it to squeezing pennies out of suckers, and there’s zero indication he’d do differently from Pennsylvania Avenue. The Wall Street Journal (never been the liberal media) reports that Trump’s promise to cut taxes is based on slashing taxes for the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans. That ain’t you. Sure, it looks like Trump’s a great businessman—if you’re watching reruns of The Apprentice. In real life, from defaults to bankby Starshine ruptcies, he’s racked up more financial failures than he has sexual-assault accusations. But even if he were the mega-mogul he says he is (and his top-secret tax returns almost email: certainly show he isn’t), boardroom bravado is useless on Capitol Hill. For the same reason President Hillary couldn’t “take away your guns,” President Donald couldn’t spit “You’re fired!” at members of Congress. Our government doesn’t work that way. Actually, if Trump is in charge, it may not work at all. For all his dictatoresque “I alone can fix it” talk, he would be impotent in office as more members of the right back away from him daily. In contrast, even Republican lawmakers say Clinton’s skilled at bringing both parties together to get things done—and can we agree things need doing? Top GOP leaders and dyed-in-the-wool conservative papers from Arizona to Texas to Ohio have broken long traditions by endorsing Clinton, condemning Trump’s “stunning lack of human decency” and declaring him a “clear and present danger” to a nation that’s managed, despite hard times and fierce divisions, to remain united under a single flag for centuries. Trump galvanized his support by playing on our lizard-brain fears. But there’s something scarier than inner-city crime, ISIS, and … er, the lack of a really high wall: It’s handing a thin-skinned name-caller the keys to the most powerful military on the planet. If he lacks the selfdiscipline to control his tongue when confronted by reporters in cheap suits, how do you think he’ll manage with vicious world leaders whose missiles are pointed at us even as you read this? Tony Schwartz, who spent 18 months living, traveling, and attending meetings with Trump before ghostwriting the Donald’s best seller The Art of the Deal, calls him a sociopath. “I genuinely believe,” he told the New Yorker in July,“that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.” Not higher taxes. Not Muslims moving into your neighborhood. The death of humankind. Your concerned friend or family member doesn’t need a response. They don’t even need you to take down your lawn sign. They just need to know that in the privacy of the voting booth, or as you hunker over your absentee ballot on the kitchen table, you’ll summon the same graciousness with which you took the time to read this—and be led by intellect over indignation. May the worst man lose.

Education is the first step. Thanks to the generosity of local donors, the SBCC Foundation has launched the SBCC Promise, removing financial barriers for all local students and making Santa Barbara City College a national leader in student access and college affordability.

living | Sports rapidly advanced. Coach Don Volpi took a bunch of basketball players from the Goleta Boys Club to the CIF AAA (second-highest division) championship in 1971. Volpi pointed out that his team’s discipline countered the canard that DP was “Hippie High.” Mires was head coach of the football team when it moved into UCSB’s Harder Stadium, winning its first league title and CIF play-off game in 1972. “We had really good coaches,” Mires said. Foremost among them was Scott O’Leary, who came along in 1969 as baseball coach, later also guiding the football team. As athletic director, O’Leary held the Chargers to a high standard of sportsmanship and insisted that sports never be inflated out of proportion to the rest of their educational experience. When DP built its on-campus stadium, it was named after O’Leary in 2009. The school’s track was the scene of one of the most remarkable efforts by high school athletes that I have witnessed. In both 1971 and ’72, DP distance runners participated in the 24-hour relay, a nationwide competition promoted by Runner’s World Magazine. On June 9-10, 1972, the Chargers — running continuous miles in relay fashion from noon one day to noon the NIGHT AND DAY: Mile by mile, DP runners set next — set a national record of 276 miles, 769 yards. a national 24-hour relay record in 1972. “I was rubbing kids down in the middle of the night,” recalled their coach, Gordon McClenathen. “They were cramping all over.” Avid runner Tom Kelsey said they were on the verge of surrender, but several hundred students showed up after dawn to cheer them on.“The kids got an adrenaline rush at the end,” McClenathen said. Joe Lambert and Tom Phillips were consistently clocked faster than five minutes for each of the 29 miles they ran. Those early days established a solid athletic tradiThey employed a single-wing offense, which their head coach Dick Prigge — later the school principal — had tion, including strong showings in volleyball and girls’ sports learned at Santa Barbara High.

ChArGer ChAmpions, Unite! Dos Pueblos High Celebrates 50-Year Anniversary This Weekend


hen I began my career as a Santa Barbara sports

writer in the fall of 1968, my first assignment was covering that unique hallmark of American culture: high school football. It was a big deal in town. The Santa Barbara Dons were proud bearers of four CIF titles, and the San Marcos Royals were their established crosstown rivals. As the new kid on a veteran News-Press sports staff, I was deployed to follow an expansion team in the hinterlands of Goleta. When Dos Pueblos High opened in 1966, its campus was still under construction. Students took late classes at San Marcos. There was no senior class, and the Chargers had a junior varsity football team that practiced at Laguna Park, the erstwhile baseball park in downtown Santa Barbara.“I drove a bus and picked up the players on street corners to take them to practice,” recalled Dick Mires, one of the coaches. When I came along two years later, the Chargers had a full-fledged varsity team. They had their own practice field, but it would be years before they would have a stadium. They played their home games at Santa Barbara’s Peabody Stadium. The first team I covered did not win a lot of games, but it had a lot of spunk.

eridith Moore’s favorite role as events manager for the Museum of Natural History is organizing the Santa Barbara Wine Festival, which she’s overseen for 13 years. That’s given her deep ties to the region’s wine industry, so Moore created a special speaking and tasting series as part of the museum’s centennial celebration. The first was an engaging chat between women winemakers in March, and the next is on Sunday, when six of Santa Barbara County’s pioneer vintners take the stage to relive old memories and share winemaking war stories. Attendees also get to try their wines and eat food from a variety of purveyors. Moderating the panel is Antonio Gardella, a humble hero of Santa Barbara wine. A salesperson for The Henry Wine Group by day, Gardella is also a widely respected home vintner, culinary historian, mushroom hunter, occasional actor, and incredibly gracious gourmand who has decades-long connections to the panelists. “I want to stand up and cheer these people,” said Gardella. “They’ve made Santa Barbara such a world-class destination. They’re tireless in seeking out the best grapes, making the best wine, and doing that here in Santa Barbara. They all climbed the ladder of success and reached wine stardom, not just on the local level but internationally.” I asked this renaissance man about each panelist, and this is what he had to say.

LATTE THEN LAGER: Zizzo’s Coffeehouse & Brew Pub co-owners Michael and Sue McDonald were inspired to serve both coffee and beer under the same roof.

very espresso bar had a pub, and every pub had an espresso bar,” said Michael McDonald of what he saw during a European vacation with his wife, Sue McDonald. They’d opened the drive-through Zizzo’s Coffee on Storke Road in 2009 and had been noticing that their morning customers often wound up at Hollister Brewing Company later in the day. “Going to Italy,” said Michael, “I thought, ‘They’re making it work. Why can’t we?’” The result is Zizzo’s Coffeehouse & Brew Pub, which opened in Goleta’s recently built Hollister Village Plaza this past May. The original spot is still open, and they also run a third Zizzo’s inside the Ice in Paradise skate rink across the street, but they now consider the hybrid as their flagship location. “This dual concept/single location is unique to the Central Coast,” said Michael. “[It’s] the first that I am aware of that operates as a full-on coffeehouse in the morning and as a sports bar/brewpub in the evening.” That means the friendly neighborhood vibe SErvES Java IN MOrNINg, of Zizzo’s Coffeehouse shifts easily to the calm, alE aNd WINE aT NIgHT clean, and casual Brew Pub at night, with a strong selection of 10 craft beers, including by Rebecca HoRRigan offerings from nearby breweries like Draughtsmen, M.Special, and Captain Fatty’s.“I’m very fortunate in the fact that a lot of our locals have very good beer,” said Michael, but he also serves popular IPAs and other flavors from Ballast Point, AleSmith, and elsewhere. Sue spearheads the wine selection, including her favorite, the fruity cabernet sauvignon from Brady Vineyards. There’s plenty to eat in the afternoon and evening, as well, thanks to Chef Anthony Salcedo, who formerly worked in the kitchen at Westmont College and heard about the position while a customer at the drive-through location. The menu, which he calls “a step away from the standard pub food,” starts with perfect beer bites like their dreamy garlic knots and the bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers, generously filled with five different cheeses. Then there are entrées both meaty and veggie-filled, from a slow-roasted pulled-pork sandwich to a toasted quinoa and baby kale salad. The wraparound bar features sports on TV, as well as surfboards and art made by folks from around the region. Guests can even enjoy some sport of their own with Jenga or cornhole in the courtyard. “This is a great community in Goleta,” said Sue, who’s also a personal trainer, while Michael is a seven-time Ironman. The best way to get a taste is during happy hour, Monday-Thursday, when pints are just $3, and you can also try the food off-site, as everything on the menu can be catered for offices and staff parties. But given Zizzo’s unique morningto-night evolution, it’s one of the few places where you could actually spend the whole day. “People that like coffee like beer and wine,” said Michael of his creation, “so we kind of put two and two together.”

’m one of the many who love to criticize fine dining.You just paid how much for one tortellini?! People are starving out there, and I am spending a week’s worth of wages on a wine and cheese pairing? Shoot me! Worst of all: I leave hungry. Then one day I finally got it: Fine dining is not a meal. It is entertainment. It is performance. It is art. It is a bloody rock show. Do not come hungry. The purpose of fine dining is to stimulate as many senses as possible to create a unique, memorable experience, preferably shared with friends. (Yes, friends— please, do not go to fine dining with someone who you dislike.) Take note of the room— the artwork, décor, spacing, architecture; this is all intended to feed your senses. Some of the most elaborate interior design occurs in fine-dining restaurants, so don’t miss it. Talk to the staff. This is not Applebee’s, where you have come to correlate eating out with frantically trying to catch someone’s attention while simultaneously giving the impression that you are not frustrated, or being ignored, HOW TO ENJOy NJO NJOy and are still engaged in that conversation you are missing. Social interaction with the staff is part of the experience. Educated on the courses, the waitstaff are your fine-dining guides. They can explain how normal ingredients were magically small-portioned transformed into unique, unrecognizable materiWOrld als — the intended texture, and the inspiration behind it. The perfect wine to offset a flavor in a by spenceR HaRdey dish. Which farms provided specific ingredients, how they were farmed, what characteristics they contain. Touch the food. Imagine walking into the Van Gogh museum and being allowed to touch and feel every piece so that you could experience all the individual brushstrokes that make up a masterpiece. In fine dining, each dish is meticulously plated and presented as a piece of art—ingredients not just chosen for taste, but also appearance, in an attempt to paint a portrait. Have I mentioned to not come hungry? Portion sizes are intentional. Having just a few bites of this masterpiece requires your full attention, forced by the price you are knowingly paying for this one bite. With that in mind, you concentrate; pick out each flavor, spice, texture; and discuss fully with those around you, giving your taste buds center stage as you experience something truly unique. Correct, you did not just throw down a massive plate of Alfredo, your palate covered in cream, eventually unable to pick out anything unique from bite to bite, the meal disappearing into your food-induced coma, the flavor lost in time. If you are starving, go to Olive Garden. I knowingly spend thousands of dollars a year on concert tickets. Why? Because I like seeing a common scale played on a guitar that was stolen from our past yet unforgivingly twisted into something new and modern. I like to be awed by the sheer intensity and effort of a drummer’s rhythm pulsing through a crowd. I absorb the atmosphere, the stage design, light show, the sound, the performance. I share the experience with those around me. For two hours of this performance, I gladly shell out hundreds of dollars, even though I could have listened to the record at home. So before your next trip to a fine-dining restaurant, remember that these establishments provide a culinary concert— concert the transformation of classics into modern works, the plating, the design. This is not dinner; it is a performance. My recommendation: Don’t come hungry.

environmental systems. That’s all fine but doesn’t heal a bleeding P&L. Outside funding is required. Ableman believes in the intrinsic remedial good of farming, as do a lot of the guys in American history books. But the tasks of growing greens while grafting them onto root rootstock of riskier realms of the human condition takes a toll on the enterprise. Take Rob: Big, blond, and smart, like a big moon rising amid the tomato plants, Rob is bipolar with borderline personality disorder. He “could completely withdraw,” explains Ableman. “I remember showing up one morning … and making a feeble attempt to approach him, but it was like cornering a wild animal.” Rob is also incredibly well-read and, more often than not, gets along with others. Then he falls apart. “It’s kind of shocking to see somebody unravel … because he does not wear his addiction like other people,” writes Ableman. “You don’t think someone that smart can fall to such depths.” While the book is full of practical farming stuff, the heat generated from the underbelly of the modern city of the developed world fuels the story. “Salvation is a big idea— idea no one does it to you or for you. But I believe that simple things can help in profound ways,” writes Ableman.“[The farm] was built on a very simple idea: rehabilitation through meaningful work … in places where previously there was nothing but hardscape and trash and rubble.” Street Farm is a good ride over bumpy roads, but it asks something of you in return.

• Wine Guide

Michael Ableman has never been one to settle for low-hanging fruit. His mission to test the mettle of agriculture by cuddling it ever closer to the hearths of the urban dilemma blossomed in the decade since he left Fairview Gardens in Goleta and headed for new frontiers in Canada. His latest book, Street Farm, Farm begins in a vacant parking lot next to the flophouse Astoria hotel on the eastside of downdown town Vancouver. He happily acknowledges the drawbacks — contaminated soils, theft, vandalism, pavement, high cost, lack of experienced skilled labor — but then he digs in. Partnering with NGOs, the city of Vancouver, and people who get things done, Ableman and crew—all employed from the neighborhood—build a fence, construct containers for imported soil, put transplants into the boxes, grow the seedlings, harvest the crop, and take it off to market. And that’s just the first chapter. The book’s grist is HR. By the second chapter, Ableman realizes (though he must have known it from the first) that this is not good ole California farm labor. His crew is composed of those who wound up on the street for occasionally unsavory reasons, and things are getting done a whole lot slower than the economics of agriculture demand. Encouraging research on his farm by Queen’s University finds that for every dollar spent on employing people who are “hard to employ,” there is a $1.70 combined savings to the prison and legal system, as well as other sundry health, social, and

There’s a pretty stark small-town charm to Old Town Orcutt, which packs a lot of eating and drinking action in a few square blocks south of Santa Maria. But it’s certainly not the place where you’d expect to find some of the best sushi and most inventive Asian-fusion cuisine in Santa Barbara County. That’s what’s happening right now at Niya Restaurant, whose stylish and sleek interior fills up an otherwise nondescript building on East Clark Avenue. And during lunch, it’s also quite a steal. For just $9, your bento box comes with the generously portioned main dish (either pork belly, nicely crisped katsu chicken, or seared salmon) and its dipping sauce, as well as a hearty crunch roll, tempura shrimp and veggies (including a shishito pepper), miso soup, rice (if desired), and a lightly dressed salad. It’s plenty, but you’d be silly to pass up raw slices of whatever fresh fish is on the menu. They come with a freshly made wasabi, which is a

The R

Opens in Carpinteria

me know that perennial winner of The Santa Barbara Independent Best Of Santa Barbara® poll, Montecito Café at 1295 Coast Village Road, served its final meal last Saturday. The family behind Montecito Café continues to operate Jane restaurant at 1311 State Street and 6920 Marketplace Drive in Goleta. MEUN FAN THAI CAFÉ COMING TO GOLETA: Readers Brendan and Cris tell me

that a sign for Meun Fan Thai Café has appeared at 5664 Calle Real in Goleta, the former home of Café International. I called Meun Fan Thai Café at 1819 Cliff Drive on the Mesa, and they confirmed that this will be their second location. I was told that they hope to open in about four months.

Goodland (5650 Calle Real) in Goleta warms up to fall with their second annual Ramenfest on Saturday, November 5, noon-4 p.m., when Santa Barbara’s top restaurant teams, some returning and some new, will put forth their best ramen recipes. The friendly competition offers a taste of a variety of ramen, from traditional to unique, all to win your vote for “Ramen King of Santa Barbara.” New this year is a sumo-wrestling ring and a pop-up sake bar featuring sake cocktail creations by Chris Burmeister, as well as a variety to enjoy straight. Proceeds from the tickets, which can be purchased at, will be donated to No Kid Hungry. SATELLITE S.B. COMING TO STATE STREET:

Satellite Santa Barbara will open its doors later this year in the recently opened Impact Hub coworking space at 1117 State Street. Satellite Santa Barbara is a concept café and wine bar built to serve members of the Impact Hub and the surrounding community. Occupying the front lobby of Impact Hub and opening directly onto State, the bar-café will showcase an ever-changing curated list of uncommon wine, beers, fortified wines, and vermouths from small producers around the world. Scarlett Begonia will provide the food, which will include seasonal salads, soups, sandwiches, and flat breads as well as a list of light bar snacks and cheeses. Lunch items will be delivered fresh each morning for quick, healthy dine-in or takeaway. Scarlett Begonia will also provide in-house catering services for the Impact Hub’s conference rooms and event spaces. Satellite Santa Barbara will also begin offering industry-standard courses to service professionals and enthusiasts alike, including curriculum from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), a globally recognized set of wineeducation courses.

eader Jenny sent me a tip that Vietnamese restaurant Phoevermore has opened at 1017 Casitas Pass Road in Carpinteria. Neighboring businesses in the Casitas Pass Shopping Center (also known as Shepard Place Shops) include Domino’s, Hugo’s, Peebee & Jay’s, Rudy’s, Subway, Taco Bell, Uncle Chen, and YoYumYum. “We are very excited to offer our food to the community, especially Carpinteria,” says owner Ron Thai.“We live here. If we wanted to eat pho, we had to go to Goleta or drive down to Ventura, so we wanted to bring it to the community. We only have a few items on the menu because we want to do them well. We didn’t want to offer a thousand things while doing none of them well. We do them traditional style, and it has to be authentic.” Thai says his personal favorite dish is the House Special Pho, and he eats it every day. It includes eye-of-round steak, brisket, well-done flank, tendons, tripe, and meatballs. I tried the spring roll with peanut sauce, and it was excellent. Phoevermore is open daily 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Call 220-6633 or visit

Last year, Santa Barbara Tamales-to-Go sold out of owner Richard Lambert’s inventive, delicious cornmeal-wrapped creations by mid-December, weeks before the tamale’s traditional Christmas splash. This year, Lambert hopes to make things “go a little more smoothly” through an online ordering system (which went live on October 13) and by freezing the fresh-steamed tamales before their delivery between December 10 and 23. “Folks can then heat and serve them whenever they wish, maybe saving a few in the freezer for post-holiday munching,”explained Lambert, who says they take about 20 or so minutes to reheat. “We’ll make 5,000 holiday tamales again this year, and I am guessing we’ll sell out. Still, the tamale fans who order early have a great shot at serving our tamales during the holidays.” The tamales, which cost $3.75 apiece, come in five flavors: chicken verde, chipotle pork, chili and cheese, spicy black bean, and farmers' market. Pints of chipotle salsa or salsa verde can also be purchased for $10. Order at tinyurl. com/sbtamales. —Matt Kettmann

When asked to describe her creative process in regard to books, Kalman is characteristically modest and self-effacing, beginning with “it’s a mystery to me.” She goes on to explain that she works on a lot of things at once and that her love of taking random walks and seeking out interesting details in everyday life both have a lot to do with it. There’s also the network of editors Kalman has worked with over the years, brilliant people in their own right with lots of suggestions for the constantly in-demand artist. Kalman’s latest collaboration is with her son, Alex, who operates a space called the Mmuseumm in lower Manhattan. The Mmuseumm, which is located in a freight elevator, specializes in showing things Maira Kalman that are “overlooked, dismissed, or ignored.” The show the mother-andout superfluous elements or rearrange them son team put together is a reconstruction in unpredictable ways.

hanks to a prolific career that includes covers and illustrated stories for the New Yorker Yorker, a column for the New York Times, and a string of beautifully crafted and successful books for adults and children, 2016 AIGA medalist Maira Kalman is a familiar figure no matter how far she ranges from her home in Manhattan. When she goes onstage at UCSB’s Campbell Hall on Monday, October 24, for an Arts & Lectures event called The Illustrated Life: The Beauty of Not Knowing (sometimes), Kalman will be greeted by an eclectic audience of aesthetes — lovers of dogs, books, travel, history, art, music, and, above all, great design. Kalman and her late husband, Tibor Kalman, first came to widespread attention in 1979 with a series of witty, irreverent products that were created for the Museum of Modern Art and marketed under the label M&Co—the “M” stands for Maira. M&Co’s subversive timepieces featured irregularly numbered faces and modern, classic fonts such as Bodoni. In an era when, everywhere you looked, wrists sported Casio and Swatch, M&Co’s watches stood apart as sophisticated and subtly but decidedly unconventional—the kind of thing you might see worn by an up-and-coming architect or a stylish graphic designer.“We started doing products because nobody else would let us,” Maira told me. Their bold take on what Kalman refers to as the clock face’s narrative inspired countless designers to throw

Almost 12 years ago, I wrote a small article for a paper called Moogsters of the Week that featured The Volt Per Octaves. The husband-and-wife band of Nick and Anna Montoya were infatuated with the Moog synthesizer, an electronic music machine built in the 1960s by Robert Moog that had somewhat faded into obscurity by the 1990s. To them, the Moog was the analog antidote to the laptop-powered digital music scene of the 2000s, so they, eventually along with their daughter/bandmate, Eva, championed its cause loudly, playing around town and then across the country at Moogfest in New York City. Five albums and national publicity in Keyboard magazine ensued, as did collaborations with such luminaries as the late Bernie Worrell of Talking Heads. The Tea Fire of 2008 forced them out of their home in Santa Barbara, so they moved to Portland and then to Asheville, North Carolina, where Nick said they’re both “living the dream” by working for a revitalized Moog Music, Inc., specifically in charge of building the coveted Moog Modular. Eva is now 18 and ready to embark on her adult life in Los Angeles, so The Volt Per Octaves will be stopping by Santa Barbara for a one-night-only engagement on Saturday, October 22, 8:30 p.m. at Elsie’s, 117 West De la Guerra Street.

Diana Poole is BacKK in

HolD a ScorPion “I killed Mickey Rooney once in a TV show,” Melodie Johnson Howe said, laughing about her past life as an actress. The author of the Diana Poole mystery stories was also in Coogan’s Bluff and Ride to Hangman’s Tree back in the 1960s, and her curious-as-a-cat detective roams from home to auditions, echoing in some ways what was once Howe’s life. Howe reaches into that past to pull up realistic but surreal scenes, like Poole fishing for a gun in her most recent book, Hold a Scor Scorpion, and realizing she knows how to load it because she’d done it before on set. Of her current craft, “I learned to write by writing short stories,” said Howe, “and I created one with an actress/sleuth called Diana Poole, and [the detective fiction magazine] Ellery Queen bought it.” But even before dreaming up Poole, the Montecito resident was nominated for the mystery world’s most prestigious awards — the Edgar, the Anthony, and the Agatha — for her first book, The Mother Shadow Shadow, which came out in 1989. Following that one with a second, Beauty Dies, featuring her Archie Goodwin–like hero Maggie Hill, Howe then wrote about a dozen shorter stories for Ellery Queen, by the end of which the coolly dynamic Poole was fully formed. The action in Scorpion takes place along and around Malibu and the Pacific Coast Highway, and it’s a shoot-’em-up good time, with plot twists and seamy characters that stay true to their time and place. “It’s so hard writing mysteries,” Howe mock-wailed of pacing and red herrings. “You can’t let them in on the real McGuffin!” She’ll be staying mum at book-signings for Hold a Scorpion, which drops October 25, at Chaucer’s Books (3321 State St.) on Thursday, October 27, at 7 p.m. and at Tecolote Book Shop (1470 E. Valley Rd.) on Friday, October 28, at 5 p.m. — Jean Yamamura

Hone Your Skills • Develop Your Craft

by David Starkey


eorge Yatchisin’s newest collection of poetry is Feast Days. Yatchisin is the communications coordinator for the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education at UC Santa Barbara, and he writes about food and drink for venues such as The Santa Barbara Independent and Edible Santa Barbara. You took some time off from writing poetry. Can you talk about that a bit and discuss why you’ve come back to it? It was a good, no pun intended, 15 years off, actually. I came up with two half-jokes to explain it. The first was, either I could write poetry or be happy. The second was, you can only write the “language is a tool that fails us” poem for so long before you at least convince yourself. It was also that I didn’t feel language coming to me in poetic ways; I didn’t stop writing prose, but you get to be easier on yourself in blogging and journalism —there’s not that same need for precision and concision. I say that with all apologies to brilliant journalists like Joe Posnanski, Ellen Willis, Molly Ivins, etc. Then in some ways, poetry came back to me.

THRIVE as a Writer!

Not surprisingly, the mouth is a recurring image. I guess a Freudian would say I never got over my oral stage. Beyond my stuntedness, one of the difficulties with these poems is the issue of exposition—working in actual information in poems can be little fun for a writer or reader. Nonetheless, I often chose in food poems to write about what people might not know, from the Latin names of things to how we ended up eating something like a celery root in the first place. I’m one of those odd tidbit collectors, and I like to share.

one of the fun things to do in a poem is write about something

What are the oddest of the oddments you’ve included in the book? There’s a whole poem about this amazing mineral serpentinite that helps make some vine vineyards great in the Santa Ynez Valley. Turns out it’s the California state rock —yep, yep, we have a state rock — but almost got demoted because it contains some asbestos, too, which for me is irresistible. What better than to romance the goodbad thing? But finding the right balance of explanation or factgiving and not putting someone to sleep or turning them off isn’t easy.

MASTERCL ASS with Grammy and Juno Award-winning soprano


Bayrakdarian A “supremely elegant singer with lyric agility and dramatic warmth.” -The Los Angeles Times


“Lines for Uni,” one of the poems in Feast Days Days, begins: “It’s incredible discovering whatever’s edible.” There’s a lot of music and wordplay in just that one line. To what extent is it representative of your overall aesthetic? That line is a good example of my fear I might push the musical to the singsong too much. My hope is that line is a sort of Ouroboros, which makes the kickoff of the poem more intriguing. But, yeah, it’s poetry. It’s supposed to sing. One of the things that bugs me the most about current poetry is so much of it is prose chopped into arbitrary line lengths. No, you don’t have to write metrically or rhyme. But there better be a rhythm, a music. And it better have some relation to your content, and that can work either way, by reinforcing it or tugging the opposite way. And in that line, that “edible” is eaten by/contained within “incredible” is the whole point. How nice!

Food and drink can seem very mundane since we consume both every day. — GeorgeYatchisin

The poems in your new chapbook, Feast Days Days, are all about eating and drinking. In a way, that seems natural for someone who is also a food and wine critic, but I’m curious about some of the differences—and difficulties—you might have had approaching this subject matter through poetry. One of the fun things to do in a poem is write about something un-poemly. Food and drink can seem very mundane since we consume both every day. So I decided I wanted to use poetry’s keen focus, and music, on food and drink— drink which, of course, is usually not just food and drink. I like to say the book’s real themes are want and need, and where the line between the two blurs. Indeed, half the poems might just be sublimated sex poems.

I’m guessing that being married to former Santa Barbara poet laureate Chryss Yost was a factor? Having a very talented poet as a wife, I was at a lot of readings, in that world again. Then to help Chryss write more during her laureate-ship, we would do write-a-poema-day months every three months. And, lo and behold, how do you get to be a poet? Practice, my son, practice.

Conversation with


don’t have a huge social life, really, [but] I like talking to people, and I think it’s important to have those conversations,” said comedian/ author Marc Maron on the purpose he sees in his podcast WTF with Marc Maron. The now popular show was born out of desperation rather than a calculated career move when, in 2009, he was fired from his radio-hosting shows for Air America, The Marc Maron Show, and Breakroom Live. Maron, along with producer Brendan McDonald, scrambled to keep working. The result was an off-the-cuff podcast that featured a variety of guests from the comedy and entertainment world. Since its inception, Maron has had some of the most famous folks in the world across the mike from him — including President Obama — engaged in chatter about all manner of things. Often revelatory and always interesting, WTF, which gets millions of downloads each month, has been touted as a podcast game changer. In anticipation of his Santa Barbara show, I spoke with Maron over the phone about his podcast and comedy work.

How do you get your guests to reveal so much? I don’t know; you just listen and talk to them. It’s not really an agendadriven show. I think that I connect with people, but I don’t know what they’re going to reveal and what they’re not going reveal. I’m not really gunning for anything. I’m sort of looking for that moment when you feel a sort of opening. When you’re in conversation, [talking] to people who have public lives … there’s a sort of patter that happens, a detachment. So once you get around that, and you’re just talking to somebody, candidly as a person, you don’t know what they’re going to reveal … and sometimes it’s pretty mundane. Neil Young saying he went to Pilates is pretty important stuff only because it’s Neil Young. These things become more loaded for people [who] think that there’s some great mystery to it, because nobody hears these people talk as people.

One of the biggest threats to your home is the carpenter ant.

Carpenter ants do not eat wood. they tunnel through wood and remove it. It is the tunneling through the wood in your property that makes these ants so damaging.

ur seemingly endless public fascination with celebrity couples can be traced historically in any number of directions —to the star-making machinery of the Hollywood studio system to the rise of newspaper gossip columns, which were the predecessors of today’s celebrity access television dailies, and even to the way in which the media has tended to foreground the family life of political figures, for better (think the Obamas) or worse (fill in the blank with your preferred scapegoat here).

NeW Noise RetuRns the city, it’s a way to “bring organizations, like-minded people, and the community together to create something that wasn’t there before.” With festival organizers keeping relatively quiet until recently, some wondered when New Noise would sound again this year — but it was never a question of if but simply when. The festival has had its ups and downs through the years, emerging in 2009 at a time when the economy had tanked and many businesses and musicians alike were grappling with the new, untested economic realities of the Internet and digitization. Cofounded by Theimer, attorney Tim Boris, and The Santa Barbara Independent’s own Matt Kettmann, the festival sought to address questions of technological and cultural change in the music industry and all related industries,

for fall’s favorite

Block Party by Richie DeMaria

and has continued in a spirit of bringing performers to town. The festival builds on S.B.’s rich history as a birthing ground for world-class acts, Theimer said, particularly in the 1990s, when acts such as Lagwagon, RKL, Sugarcult, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Nerf Herder, Dishwalla, Kenny Loggins, and of course the Mad Caddies all helped to shape the national musical landscape. Between this and the fact that our paradisiacal location is the intertidal nook neighboring a metropolis populated with perhaps the highest concentration of entertainers and cultural thinkers in the entire world, S.B. New Noise Festival’s endurance nullifies any arguments that S.B. is a cultural dead zone. Quite the opposite: As New Noise reminds us, S.B. is a perfect place to celebrate and welcome the new. cara robbins


hat’s that sound? It’s the rumblings of a new New Noise, back for another year of enlivening S.B.’s musical landscape with some of today’s best, freshest, and hottest performers with the always welcome sight and sound of State Street pianos. With a New Noise Block Party featuring top-tier acts such as Strfkr, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the Mad Caddies, and Night Riots, plus food trucks, a beer and wine garden, and plenty of inspiring art, it’s just the energetic injection our town needs concurrent with our evolution as an exciting and cutting-edge cultural hub all our own.“The New Noise Block Party represents a full circle of music, community, and New Noise as an entity,” festival director Jeff Theimer said of the keystone event. Involving volunteers and venues from all over

o all someones, no-ones, and everyones in between: Brace your ears for some truly new sounds at New Noise, when Portland-based rockers Strfkr debut never-beforeplayed-live cuts from their newest album, Being No One, Going Nowhere. Despite the anonymity of the title, the band themselves have certainly become someone on the indie-rock music scene, with an experimentally leaning, synth-inflected take on rock and pop that is jaggedly creative and fresh, a sound that is unquestionably placed in Portland, sovereignty of indie creativity. Paired with their friends Unknown Mortal Orchestra, whose name also evokes a certain nothingness, music fans will certainly have something to talk about once New Noise has sounded off.

The title of their new album was inspired by the writings of Buddhist nun Ayya Khema in her book Being Nobody, Going Nowhere, said singer Joshua Hodges. Hodges has embraced “that idea of letting go of the idea of who we think we are and what we need to be happy and letting ourselves exist as we are,” he said. The title evokes a kind of egolessness, an experience of life without the limitations of self-expectation or the blindness of self-importance. It’s a much nicer way to engage in the world, he says, when you are not running up against your own expectations of life and their failure to coincide with reality, or when you’re no longer pressuring yourself to be anything more than what you are in the moment. Some of the lyrical themes of the album were inspired by Hodges’ recent adventures with BDSM, when he underwent a philosophical and spiritual liberation at a BDSM club. Having grown up in a strict Catholic household, underneath domineering doctrines of guilt-inducement, the experience lifted some of the weight of his past. “I had a lot of baggage around sexuality, and going into this place and seeing this group of people who I felt had a really healthy and social relationship to sex, with zero shame, was really kind of cathartic and healing for me,” he said.“All your concerns and stresses just disappear, and you are very much in the present moment; you’re playing with the sense of self and the ego.”

Hodges has run up against some philosophical difficulties with indie-rock stardom. “The ego, no matter what happens, will attach to anything that you do,” he said. “It can be totally pure and great, and then your ego attaches and builds it up to be something else.” Public exposure always tempts with the opportunity to believe one’s own self-aggrandizement, but Hodges is happy to play with his public persona. His uncle was a Liza Minnelli impersonator at a cross-dressing club, and the young Hodges saw much inspiration in his gender-bending uncle; he, too, is now known to wear dresses onstage, along with the rest of his band. “It kind of goes with the idea of overcoming that sense that there’s something that you should or shouldn’t be — that there’s no right or wrong way to do any of this, and in a perfect world, people would wear whatever they want and identify with however they want.” So whether you consider yourself a someone or a no-one, going somewhere or nowhere, or some combination thereof, Strfkr’s set of brand-new songs will be an excellent opportunity to simply be: Be yourself, be happy, and enjoy the music, played live nowhere else before.

Maceo Parker Comes to town


“an entertaining theatrical tour-de-force”

he first song Maceo Parker recorded with James Brown was the immortal classic “Papa’s Got a Brand-New Bag,” and it could have been called “Papa’s Got a Brand-New Band” when you look back and listen to the impact that Parker had on Brown’s music. Now, some years later, having subsequently served with both George Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic and on several recordings by the late Prince, Parker can by Charles Donelan make a fair claim to being the most influential instrumentalist in the history of funk. Time after time, this musician has found a way to make the groove explode with irresistible saxophone lines that stay in the memory long after they’ve sparked movement on the dance floor. Just this summer, Parker enjoyed what he considers to be one of the greatest honors of his long career when he performed with the Ray Charles Orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl both on saxophone and in the vocal role of none other than Ray Charles. “I got lucky,” he told me in a recent phone conversation. “The Ray Charles Orchestra and the Raelettes are so great, but they hadn’t worked together since Ray died in 2004. I knew the leader of the orchestra’s trombone section, Steve Sigmund, and he knew both how much I loved the music and that I enjoyed singing the songs, so that’s how it came about.” You can be sure that Parker’s concert on Thursday, October 27, at UCSB’s Campbell Hall will include some Ray Charles hits, as this tribute concert in Los Angeles was just a couple of months ago, and even now, in his seventies, Parker is as crazy about those songs as he was when he first heard them back in 1958.“It feels like I’ve been in love with that stuff for like a thousand years,” he said. “Singing it in front of Ray’s band and in the Hollywood Bowl was an out-of-body experience for me.” As for the James Brown material, well, that’s a given. “We get things started with the James Brown stuff,” he said,“but then we move on because I’m excited to cover as many bases as I can.” Asked about taking over the leader’s role after putting in so much time as part of the band, his answer is quite matter-of-fact,“Everybody got their own ideas in a band, so you have to have somebody to say ‘No, do it like this.’” Parker compares working in a touring funk band to the military, saying that he’s “the sergeant of keeping us all on the same page — and on the same part of that page!” Despite his emphasis on band discipline, there’s no mistaking Maceo Parker for the kind of hard taskmaster that James Brown was known for being. In fact, his big message is not “be on time or pay a fine” but rather “music is love.” “Love, man, boldface with all capital letters LOVE, that is what I always say when I am on the bandstand, because I believe the power of love is what saves us, and that’s what my music is about.”

Jookin’ Master



by Richie DeMaria BRING OUT THE JAMS: The first time dance director and former N.Y.C. Ballet principal dancer Damian Woetzel noticed Charles “Lil Buck” Riley—the jookin’ prodigy who will perform A Jookin’ Jam Session at UCSB on Tuesday, October 25, and host a community class with Ron “Prime Tyme” Myles at Santa Barbara Dance Arts Studio on Sunday, October 23—he discovered him like many of us first did: on a computer screen. Woetzel’s wife, Heather Watts, spotted the dancer on a Facebook video, a teenager performing in a classroom in West Memphis, Arkansas, to the sound of Camille SaintSaëns’s Le cygne, and Woetzel was struck by Lil Buck’s “unusual and beautiful” combination of classical music with the Southern street dance style. So moved was Woetzel that he hit up his pal Yo-Yo Ma, and a collaboration was born. “I had this feeling about his talent and extraordinarily collaborative ability, and got the sense that he was up for it all,” Woetzel said. Lil Buck and Yo-Yo Ma collaborated in an unforgettable moment, captured by Spike Jonze and watched by millions. “Buck’s gift of communicating through the arts was clear from that minute, and that was the beginning,” recalled Woetzel, who himself will lead a community ballet class at Gustafson Dance on Sunday, October 23. Now, years later, Lil Buck stands as one of the most innovative and renowned dancers in America. Through his partnership with Woetzel, Lil Buck’s star rose brightly and rapidly, from taking on an artist-in-residence position at the 2011 Vail International Dance Festival to joining Madonna at the Super Bowl and on the road as a dancer to honoring the spirit of Michael Jackson in Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: One to launching a Versace sneaker line. Lil Buck’s work is a mix of improvisation and measured technicality, with the balance between varying per piece, Woetzel said. Some pieces are choreographed, and others free-form; either way, Lil Buck brings his distinctive style. But beyond his uniquely fluid moves, Lil Buck has made a name for himself through community outreach performances, like his upcoming dance class at S.B. Dance Arts Studio this weekend. In 2014, for example, Lil Buck performed at the TEDxTeen conference in New York, and in Detroit, he,Yo-Yo Ma, and Woetzel visited Spain Elementary-Middle School with an interactive Arts Strike, where Lil Buck jooked to a musical geography totally apart from his own as he danced to bagpipe music of Silk Road Ensemble bagpiper Cristina Pato. Outreach performances such as these reflect Lil Buck’s deep belief in the transformative power of arts, Woetzel said.“He really is a true citizen artist in the sense that he believes the arts are a solution, or a part of a solution, to everything,” Woetzel said. “When we look at problems facing society, or education issues, or health or inequality issues, people who don’t have the ability in society to be heard — we see the arts as a solution to be applied, and Buck believes that approaches everything he does with that spirit.” After their S.B. performance, Buck, Woetzel, and company have lots on their plate, including shows at the City Center in New York, featuring “lots of musicians and lots of dancers, and Buck in the thick of it,” said Woetzel, plus an exciting Broadway project in development that will capitalize on Buck’s singular jookin’. Lil Buck, it’s clear, will keep on jookin’ on — see him at UCSB, and you, too, will be under his spell. Lil Buck performs A Jookin’ Jam Session Tuesday, October 25, 8 p.m., at the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.), and a Community Class at S.B. Dance Arts Studio (531 E. Cota St.) on Sunday, October 23.

Van Morrison


t’s the most clichéd way ever to start a Van Morrison concert review, but Saturday was such a marvelous night for a moon dance that I can’t let it pass. The stars were up above and, ’neath the cover of October skies, we watched clouds zip by on At the S.B. Bowl, the breezes that blew, the Sat., Oct. 15. only evidence of our first rain threat of the season. Then, as the 71-year-old, smokyvoiced legend dove into “Moondance,” the brilliant full moon rose behind him, casting the sold-out crowd in soft, magical light. I’ll skip the romantic part, for I’d taken my mom to our hallowed venue for the first time. She wondered why people weren’t up and dancing from the get-go, which is a common question for all at the Bowl, a conundrum compounded when the ticket prices and attendees’ ages are elevated. But even from our seats, I could tell everyone was impressed by the tight and energetic set from the Irish singer, who sings like he’s from New Orleans and looked, in my mom’s eye, like a cartoonish Danny DeVito character, short and dressed in a fedora and streamlined suit. He began in a jazzy, lounge-y style with “Too Late” and “Have I Told You Lately,” got more rockin’ on the back of “Wild Night,” “Wavelength,” and a medley that included “Baby Please Don’t Go” and “Here Comes the Night,” and featured such hits as “Precious Time,”“Brown-Eyed Girl,” and the aforementioned “Moondance,” at which point much of the crowd was standing for the rest of the show. The finale was an extended “Gloria,” which culminated — after Van left the stage after his roughly 80 minutes of work — in a series of solos from the extremely adept backing band. — Matt Kettmann



he intimate atmosphere of SOhO Restaurant & Music Club made the perfect setting for a sensual show from British electronic duo Honne Tuesday, October 11. Baby-faced Ravyn Lenae from Chicago opened the show with a set of funky house music. “You ever At SOhO Restaruant like somebody and they didn’t like you back?” & Music Club, she asked the collegeTue., Oct. 11. aged crowd. “Yeah? I

James Hatcher of Honne wrote a song about that.” The soul singer’s mystifying gaze seared into the audience’s eyes; lyrics about love and finding yourself were easily relatable. Underneath a blanket of Technicolor lights, Honne opened its set with instrumental sounds, jiving with the touring band until the lead singer, Andy Clutterbuck, captured the crowd’s attention with his sultry voice and subtle charisma. Singer Izzy Bizu, featured on the track “Someone That Loves You,” was rumored to be a surprise guest at the show but couldn’t make it. In her place, background singer Naomi Scarlett hit all the right notes and was welcomed warmly by the crowd. The band played an encore, and per a fan’s request played “Woman.” The track set a relaxed feel among the audience, with everyone swaying hips and waving arms in the air. Clutterbuck encouraged people in the crowd to hug one another, saying,“Let’s make this room the biggest love room.”And just like that, a stranger was hugging me from behind. For anyone who missed the show, Honne will most likely be back in town soon.“This is our first time to Santa Barbara,” Clutterbuck said.“It’s amazing. I’m going to live here.” — Savanna Mesch

No one took At the Granada a knee during either Theatre, Sun., work. While Rouse Oct. 15. identifies “Rapture” as his most unabashedly tonal composition, there’s nothing polite about it.

plary older sibling that then becomes the source of a profound sense of mistrust, particularly toward the “phoniness” of the previous generation. This generation gap at once reflects the outward disconnection between children and their parents caused by changing social mores, and a personal agenda that’s driven by the loss of a specific individual. As a narrative device, sibling grief works well, offering a protagonist with both a strong sense of righteousness and a significant blind spot about the source of his or her anger. The male leads — Tom Hinshaw as patriarch Lyman Wyeth and Justin Stark as baby brother Trip — excel, but it’s the women who own this complex world of secrets, unspoken animosity, and unresolved issues. Katers is a game Brooke, and E. Bonnie Lewis gets some great laughs out of the sister Silda role. However, the night belongs to Meredith McMinn, who struts and preens as the misunderstood harridan Polly. See Other Desert Cities for this fine performance, and for Pat Frank’s magnificent Palm Springs set. — CD

ecstasy that’s based in humanistic rather than religious sentiment. At a mere 13 minutes in length, “Rapture” is necessarily a ride on the ecstasy express, arriving at its destination flushed with the thrill of its own continuous acceleration. As for the main event, the Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 125 of Beethoven, there’s nothing else like it in all of music. As Kerry Candaele’s wonderful documentary Following the Ninth has shown, every performance of this monumental work takes on the paradoxical aura of a secular sacrament. We are fortunate in Santa Barbara to have a robust choral community on which to draw for these very special moments. In this instance, members of the Westmont College Choir, the Santa Barbara Choral Society, Quire of Voyces, the UCSB Vocal Program, and the San Marcos High School Madrigal Singers gathered to realize Beethoven’s music alongside soloists Jeanine De Bique, Nina Yoshida Nelsen, Benjamin Brecher, and DeAndre Simmons. With so many ways to praise this true “symphony unlimited” available, I’ll take the road less traveled, and in honor of, among other things, Bob Dylan’s recent Nobel Prize, I nominate the “Ode to Joy” as the first great pop anthem. Before “Blowin’ in the Wind,” before “Let It Be,” there was Beethoven, who harnessed a lyric of universal relevance and secular wisdom to an unforgettable melody and then threw in a hook. We’ve been aiming that high ever since. — Charles Donelan

his comparison may at first seem like a stretch, but bear with me. Seeing Other Desert Cities again in a fine new production directed by R. Michael Gros for the Theatre Group at Santa Barbara City College, I was struck by a previously unremarked resemblance to J.D. At SBCC’s Garvin Salinger’s novel The Theatre, Fri., Catcher in the Rye. In Oct. 14. Shows that notoriously popular through Oct. 29. adolescent coming-ofage classic, Holden suffers from sibling grief at the loss of his older brother, Allie. In Other Desert Cities, it’s Brooke (Stephanie Katers) who struggles with the loss of her older brother, Henry. In both stories, there’s a trauma that’s caused by the death of an exem-

his delightful production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It got off to a spectacular start with cheering attendants loudly hailing the arrival at court of the royal wrestler Charles and never let up in either pacing or pleaAt Westmont’s sure from there on until Porter Theatre, the final masque. Sat., Oct. 15. Westmont students Sean McElrath and Anna Telfer played Orlando and Rosalind, respectively, the leading lovers in a play that’s full of amorous couples, clever wordplay, and gorgeous poetry. Powered along by director John Blondell’s ingenious movements and gestures, the action took place in a remarkably interesting alternative Arden devised by designer Yuri Okahana. The fascinating work of this experimental set designer included a large rotating greenhouse that was straight out of Home Depot and a forest of highly Shakespearean grafting trees built from rolling stools and plastic garbage bags. The uncanny effectiveness of this lowtech look underscored the show’s defiantly direct aesthetic. Sterling supporting performances were almost too numerous to mention, but no account of this production would be complete without recognizing the hysterical interludes provided by Merckx Dascomb as Touchstone and Karly Kuntz as Audrey. Bravo to these young actors and to the Westmont theater program for once again making Shakespeare fun, and funny. — CD

ScREEningS O The Battle of Algiers (121 mins., NR) Italian director Gillo Pontecorvo (and cocomposer, with Ennio Morricone) won well-deserved accolades and placement on many “greatest films” lists for his powerful 1966 film about a key battle of the FrenchAlgerian war (1954-62) — as well a controversial greeting in the formerly Algeria-occupying France, which banned screenings until 1971. Seeing it again today (preferably on the big screen) reconfirms its cinematic mastery, in a compelling and vivid neorealist style with a narrative-tapestry format, told from multiple perspectives on both sides of the conflict.

Aesthetically, the movie is well-made and tailor-suited for Tim Burton’s whimsy, and lead actor Asa Butterfield makes a great brooding teen. However, the movie would have been better if the time loops and rabbit holes were accentuated with a deeper sense of human drama; still, it’s a fine fable, more imaginative than most recent movies for this demographic have been.

Queen of Katwe oppressors is also more timely and chilling than ever. (JW)

Sun.-Wed., Oct. 23-26, Riviera

Suicide Squad (122 mins., PG-13) What hurts the most about this muchanticipated anti-superhero movie’s abject failure is that it was made by David Ayer, who directed the tense, thrilling Fury. This is all flab: Despite some great work by Margot Robbie and Will Smith, Suicide Squad feels like a long, discursive intro followed by a prolonged preface, until we realize this gunk is going to be the movie. By then it’s all over with no winners or losers, a genre deconstruction that (to put it politely) makes everything worse. (DJP)

Wilkinson give the film the intensity one would expect from a drama, but the film lacks an element of surprise and mystery. In the end, Denial is a somber reflection of the Holocaust’s impact on society and investigates the subjectiveness of history. (SM) Plaza de Oro The Dressmaker (119 mins., R) Kate Winslet stars in this revenge dramedy about a former femme fatale who returns to the small Australian town in which she grew up, bringing haute couture and retribution to its female residents. Plaza de Oro

Queen of Katwe (124 mins., PG) This biopic tells the story of chess prod igy Phiona Mutesi, who, despite growing up in the Ugandan slum of Katwe, becomes a Women’s Chess Olympiad.


American Honey (163 mins., R) This Cannes Film Festival Prix du Jury winner tells the story of a wayward youth who joins up with a traveling magazine sales crew who party hard, break the law, and fall in love as they crisscross the Midwest. Plaza de Oro Deepwater Horizon (107 mins., PG-13) Mark Wahlberg stars as Mike Williams in this biographical thriller about the 2010 explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that killed 11 employees and spewed petroleum from the sea floor for 87 days.

Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

Denial (110 mins., PG-13) Denial a historical drama about DeboDenial, rah Lipstadt’s agonizing legal battle with Holocaust denier David Irving, provokes questions about the malleability of free speech, truth, and history. The film’s slow beginning makes for a boring hour until Lipstadt, hailing from a Jewish heritage, visits a morose Auschwitz covered in snow to gather evidence for her trial that the Holocaust did happen. The film shows potential when the two meet in court and is ultimately supported by an excellent cast. Rachel Weisz, Timothy Spall, and Tom

In this mildly entertaining remake of the classic western, a big cast of characters prepares a town for a huge shootout against a land-grabbing rich man. The attention to detail is rich and the drama is portentous, appearing serious and gritty but being on the whole rather bland. Refreshingly, men and women of a variety of cultures are the gun-wielding heroes, and though the inclusivity is cool, this is yet another depiction of an armed populace rising up against a vague villainy, and the mass violence feels senseless. (RD) Fiesta 5 Max Steel (92 mins., PG-13) Mattel’s action figure Max Steel makes his big-screen debut in this origin story starring Ben Winchell.

Fri. and Mon., Oct. 21 and 24, 7 and 10pm, I.V. Theater, 960 Embarcadero del Norte

The Accountant (128 mins., R) Ben Affleck stars in this crime thriller about a forensic accountant who uses his savant-like mathematical skills to cook the books for criminal organizations. Life gets dicey when a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) closes in on his dodgy dealings. John Lithgow and Anna Kendrick also star. Camino Real/Metro 4

The Magnificent Seven (132 mins., PG-13)

The Girl on the Train The Girl on the Train (112 mins., R) In this film based on the best-selling novel of the same name, Emily Blunt brings protagonist Rachel Watson to life in this mystery about an alcoholic who thinks she’s witnessed a murder during her train ride into the city.

Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Kevin Hart: What Now? (96 mins., R) Kevin Hart performs his stand-up comedy show at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field. Camino Real/Metro 4 A Man Called Ove (116 mins., PG-13) The dramedy out of Sweden tells the story of Ove, a grumpy man who doesn’t get along with anyone in his neighborhood. Then new neighbors move in across the street, and an unexpected friendship is kindled. Riviera Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (92 mins., PG) Rafe Khatchadorian (Griffin Gluck) stars as the ringleader of a junior high school rebellion to humiliate the cruel, strict teachers and principal who run the school.

(96 mins., PG-13)

In Sully, Tom Hanks plays Chesley Sullenberger, the beloved pilot who in 2009 crash-landed a U.S. Airways flight in the Hudson River, saving all aboard. Much of the humbly tempered movie concentrates on Sully’s behind-the-scenes wrangling with PTSD and insurance suits who grill him on his competency. In the end, heroism triumphs in a gently inspiring if crowd-pleasingly dull way, and Sully is a welcome reminder of unambiguous human goodness. (RD)

OCTOBER 20, 2016

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of octobeR 20 ARIES




(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): In the 1980s, two performance artists did a project entitled A Year Tied Together at the Waist. For 12 months, Linda Montano and Tehching Hsieh were never farther than eight feet away from each other, bound by a rope. Hsieh said he tried this experiment because he felt very comfortable doing solo work, but wanted to upgrade his abilities as a collaborator. Montano testified that the piece “dislodged a deep hiddenness” in her. It sharpened her intuition and gave her a “heightened passion for living and relating.” If you were ever going to engage in a comparable effort to deepen your intimacy skills, Aries, the coming weeks would be a favorable time to attempt it.

(June 21-July 22): Cuthbert Collingwood (1748-1810) had a distinguished career as an admiral in the British navy, leading the sailors under his command to numerous wartime victories. He was also a goodnatured softie whose men regarded him as generous and kind. Between battles, while enjoying his downtime, he hiked through the English countryside carrying acorns, which he planted here and there so the “Navy would never want for oaks to build the fighting ships upon which the country’s safety depended.” (Quoted in Life in Nelson’s Navy, by Dudley Pope.) I propose that we make him your role model for the coming weeks. May his example inspire you to be both an effective warrior and a tender soul who takes practical actions to plan for the future.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the course of her long career, Libran actress Helen Hayes won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Tony. Years before all that glory poured down on her, she met playwright Charles MacArthur at a party in a posh Manhattan salon. Hayes was sitting shyly in a dark corner. MacArthur glided over to her and slipped a few salted peanuts into her hand. “I wish they were emeralds,” he told her. It was love at first sight. A few years after they got married, MacArthur bought Hayes an emerald necklace. I foresee a metaphorically comparable event in your near future, Libra: peanuts serving as a promise of emeralds.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the past 11 months, did you ever withhold your love on purpose? Have there been times when you “punished” those you cared about by acting cold and aloof? Can you remember a few occasions when you could have been more generous or compassionate, but chose not to be? If you answered yes to any of those questions, the next three weeks will be an excellent time to atone. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you can reap maximum benefit from correcting stingy mistakes. I suggest that you make gleeful efforts to express your most charitable impulses. Be a tower of bountiful power.



(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Welcome to the Painkiller Phase of your cycle. It’s time to relieve your twinges, dissolve your troubles, and banish your torments. You can’t sweep away the whole mess in one quick heroic purge, of course. But I bet you can pare it down by at least 33 percent. (More is quite possible.) To get started, make the following declaration five times a day for the next three days: “I am grateful for all the fascinating revelations and indispensable lessons that my pain has taught me.” On each of the three days after that, affirm this truth five times: “I have learned all I can from my pain, and therefore no longer need its reminders. Good-bye, pain.” On the three days after that, say these words, even if you can’t bring yourself to mean them with complete sincerity: “I forgive everybody of everything.”

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1415, a smaller English army defeated French forces at the Battle of Agincourt in northern France. Essential to England’s victory were its 7,000 longbowmen — archers who shot big arrows using bows that were six feet long. So fast and skilled were these warriors that they typically had three arrows flying through the air at any one time. That’s the kind of high-powered proficiency I recommend that you summon during your upcoming campaign. If you need more training to reach that level of effectiveness, get it immediately.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): In the coming weeks would you prefer that we refer to you as “voracious”? Or do you like the word “ravenous” better? I have a feeling, based on the astrological omens, that you will be extra super eager to consume vast quantities of just about everything: food, information, beauty, sensory stimulation, novelty, pleasure, and who knows what else. But please keep this in mind: Your hunger could be a torment or it could be a gift. Which way it goes may depend on your determination to actually enjoy what you devour. In other words, don’t get so enchanted by the hypnotic power of your longing that you neglect to exult in the gratification when your longing is satisfied.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): When the wind blows at 10 miles per hour, a windmill generates eight times more power than when the breeze is five miles per hour. Judging from the astrological omens, I suspect there will be a similar principle at work in your life during the coming weeks. A modest increase in effort and intensity will make a huge difference in the results you produce. Are you willing to push yourself a bit beyond your comfort level in order to harvest a wave of abundance?

Homework: Describe what you’d be like if you were the opposite of yourself. Freewillastrology .com

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Eighteenth-century musician Giuseppe Tartini has been called “the godfather of modern violin playing.” He was also an innovative composer who specialized in poignant and poetic melodies. One of his most famous works is the Sonata in G Minor, also known as the Devil’s Trill. Tartini said it was inspired by a dream in which he made a pact with the Devil to provide him with new material. The Infernal One picked up a violin and played the amazing piece that Tartini transcribed when he woke up. Here’s the lesson for you: He didn’t actually sell his soul to the Devil. Simply engaging in this rebellious, taboo act in the realm of fantasy had the alchemical effect of unleashing a burst of creative energy. Try it!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The planets have aligned in a curious pattern. I interpret it as meaning that you have cosmic permission to indulge in more self-interest and self-seeking than usual. So it won’t be taboo for you to unabashedly say,“What exactly is in it for me?” or “Prove your love, my dear” or “Gimmeee gimmeee gimmee what I want.” If someone makes a big promise, you shouldn’t be shy about saying, “Will you put that in writing?” If you get a sudden urge to snag the biggest piece of the pie, obey that urge.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): For the foreseeable future, you possess the following powers: to make sensible that which has been unintelligible … to find amusement in situations that had been tedious … to create fertile meaning where before there had been sterile chaos. Congratulations, Sagittarius! You are a first-class transformer. But that’s not all. I suspect you will also have the ability to distract people from concerns that aren’t important … to deepen any quest that has been too superficial or careless to succeed … and to ask the good questions that will render the bad questions irrelevant.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Let’s imagine your life as a novel. The most recent chapter, which you’ll soon be drawing to a close, might be called “The Redemption of Loneliness.” Other apt titles: “Intimacy with the Holy Darkness” or “The Superpower of Surrender” or “The End Is Secretly the Beginning.” Soon you will start a new chapter, which I’ve tentatively dubbed “Escape from Escapism,” or perhaps “Liberation from False Concepts of Freedom” or “Where the Wild Things Are.” And the expansive adventures of this next phase will have been made possible by the sweet-and-sour enigmas of the past four weeks.
