it’s like that

Indy Executive Arts Editor Charles Donelan attributes his lifelong interest in music to lots of active listening, rather than any claim to musical talent: “I put down the fiendishly difficult B-flat cornet almost as soon as I picked it up.” He recalls life-changing concerts while a New England teenager by everyone from the Grateful Dead and Little Feat to Talking Heads and Pere Ubu. As a grad student in New York City, he was an elevator operator in the legendary Danceteria, where Madonna made her first public appearances and Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys were regulars. Here in town, Charles salutes the symphony and opera, the Lobero and Bowl, and CAMA and UCSB Arts & Lectures for consistently bringing the best in music old, new, and in between.

GreeN TeaM: Joan Hartmann (left) and Das Williams (right) were sworn in Tuesday as 3rd and 1st district county supervisors, respectively. Both strong environmentalists, they enter county government at a time when the looming Donald Trump administration appears poised to try to roll back federal regulations related to climate change.

New Supes Sworn In; Will Trump Put Their Environmental Credentials to the Test? by Kelsey Brugger

D

as Williams showed up to the first day

of his new job as a county supervisor without prepared remarks. Even so, the former state assemblymember recited a line from “his favorite dead white male,” T.S. Eliot: “Take no thought of the harvest, but only of proper sowing.” He explained, “Our society does not prize long-term thinking … I want my values to be more than surface pretention.” Joan Hartmann, meanwhile, said while America’s faith in nearly all institutions has tanked, the glimmer of hope is local government. It doesn’t get much more local than Santa Barbara’s Board of Supervisors. Williams, 42, was elected to represent the 1st District, which stretches from Montecito to the western edge of the City of Santa Barbara. Hartmann, 66, will represent the 3rd District, spanning Isla Vista to the Santa Ynez Valley, and up to Guadalupe. They both received a warm welcome from an overflowing board hearing room, but the cheerful congeniality might not last. Conservatives grumble that the new board will continue to tilt to the left since Williams and Hartmann are liberal progressives. They are joining Janet Wolf, who seldom budges from her strong, progressive values. Her soft, motherly presence can be deceptive; she is fierce. In addition, Steve Lavagnino, once the GOP’s golden boy and son of a Santa Maria mayor, is increasingly seen as reasonable by liberals. That means archconservative Peter Adam, the owner of a large commercial

farm in Santa Maria, is regularly the lone vote. He was the only supervisor to support Donald Trump, saying, “I think it represents saving America as we know it.” Though Adam was usually the odd man out, the dynamic of the old board grew affable, as the five county supervisors appeared to truly like each other. “I was surprised that I was as emotional as I was about the other two leaving,” Lavagnino said. As for the new personalities, he said they “will figure it out.” They will have to. This year’s budget will be a challenge. The county must contribute an estimated $11 million more to the employee pension fund next fiscal year. Ultimately, this could translate to layoffs, reduced services, and slower services. In addition, more money was recently allotted to fire services. And the county supervisors previously voted to tuck away more money each year to maintain county roads and parks. The county must allot several million dollars every year for the future operation of the new northern branch jail, now under construction. But the greatest uncertainty fast approaching is the Trump presidency. Trump has already indicated he would repeal the Affordable Care Act, deport undocumented immigrants and oppose raising the minimum wage —just some of the things that a majority of California voters have supported. In fact, Governor Jerry Brown recently appointed Xavier Becerra, congressmember from Los Angeles, as the state’s attorney general, to fight Trump’s plans.

This battle could drastically impact the hundreds of millions of dollars Santa Barbara County receives every year from the federal government. Specifically, the county gets $118 million each year directly from the feds and a similar amount for providing certain services. This includes enrolling 55,000 people in the Affordable Care Act since 2013. But, County CEO Mona Miyasato said, Trump has also pledged to invest $1 trillion in infrastructure over the next 10 years. “If that ends up being true,” she said, “that could be good news for us.” Given the certain and possible budget shortfalls, some are calling for more oil drilling and development to boost county revenues. In the next two years, applications for several hundreds of steam-injection oil wells will go before the board. Approval could be unlikely. Both Hartmann and Williams drive electric cars. No one can predict exactly how the new group will get along. “In any change, there is a period of adjustment,” said Supervisor Wolf. “For me, I just want to make the new boardmembers comfortable.” On the surface, Williams and Hartmann appear very different. If Hartmann were a schoolteacher, Williams would be the kid in the back of the class performing card tricks. In fact, he hired magicians and fire dancers to entertain college students in Isla Vista on Election Night while they waited in line to vote. He is often the center of attention. He was the first county supervisor to be sworn in at the beach

Anthony Michael Durham (pictured), 67, pleaded guilty on 1/5 to 17 counts of child molestation, which could land him in prison for life. The former Lompoc City Council appointee was a volunteer chaplain with the city’s police and fire departments and a former CHP officer, and he had worked as a “crime prevention” specialist for the Sheriff’s Office. Durham had “grotesque” and “adult” sexual contact with two children younger than 11 years of age, said prosecutor Stephen Foley, and faces 45 years to life at sentencing, a reflection of the severity of his conduct and the youth of his victims. It’s “essentially a life sentence,” Foley said, since Durham will not be eligible for parole until age 112. Steve Crozier, 64, of Santa Barbara has pleaded not guilty to 19 felony counts filed on 1/6 in Ventura County involving financial transactions totaling more than $500,000. Crozier was a financial advisor, said Howard Wise, senior deputy district attorney in Ventura, who convinced two women, one a senior, to invest money in companies including Media Ventures,

The County Sheriff’s Office has added an online feature that allows people to report certain crimes directly to sbsheriff.org. For crimes in progress, citizens still dial 9-1-1, but for incidents such as lost property, theft, animal complaints, child custody violation, telephone harassment, civil complaints, vandalism, trespassing, unlawful use of credit card, vacation checks, and fraud or identity theft, citizens can report them online. The new procedure should increase the efficiency of deputies’ investigations into community needs, help spot crime trends, and allow more focus on priority calls.

Álvarez-Alzúa countered President-elect Donald Trump’s statements that immigrants could be potential dangerous criminals, stating immigrants are less likely to commit crimes because of their immigration status. People should know there are rights that protect them in the U.S., he said. For instance, for Dream Act scholars, it is against the Constitution to use their information against them.

or City of Santa Barbara water czar Joshua Haggmark, cruel ironies are piling up fast and furious. The good news, of course, is that it’s raining — so hard and sustained, in fact, that for the first time in many moons, there’s water running down the Santa Ynez River and into Lake Cachuma. The bad news, less obviously, is that the rain is falling most plentifully on the wrong side of the mountains, away from the three reservoirs upon which South Coast water agencies rely. This week’s wet optics provided a particularly inauspicious backdrop for Haggmark to drop his latest bombshell on city councilmembers over the escalating price tag for rebuilding the city’s longmothballed desalination plant. The desal plant, he revealed, will cost $15 million more to build than the $55 million initially projected and nearly $10 million more than the last time he reported $6 million in cost overruns. The start-up date for plant production has been pushed back yet again, this time to somewhere between mid-February to mid-March. Initially, the plant was slated to become operational October 4. For some councilmembers, sticker shock quickly became shell shock. “This is a $15 million oops we’ve got here,” thundered Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss. “That’s a lot of money.” Haggmark explained that drawings of the plant provided by Ionics, the company that built the original facility back in 1992, bore little relationship to what construction crews were encountering now. Hotchkiss charged “fraud” and wanted to know if the city could sue. He was informed that Ionics has long been out of business and that fraud would be exceptionally hard to prove. After asking a series of pointed questions, Councilmember Jason Dominguez argued that neither the current contractor nor the company City Hall hired to manage the construction project had any incentive to control costs or finish the work in a timely manner. Both Dominguez and Hotchkiss questioned whether money could be saved by farming out some of the work via competitive bids. To open any portion of the project to bids, Haggmark replied, would delay start-up by at least three more months.

The cruelest irony of them all that Haggmark never got around to telling the council is this: The heavy rains now pummeling Northern California are threatening to cause 30,000 acre-feet of emergency water that Santa Barbara water agencies have stored in the San Luis Reservoir — located 12 miles west of Los Baños—to disappear. That the logic seems counterintuitive in the extreme does not make the threat any less dire. Over the years, all the area water agencies that are hooked into the State Water Project and that belong to the Central Coast Water Authority (CCWA) purchased emergency water and stored it in the San Luis Reservoir, the fifth largest in California. But by contractual agreement, once San Luis fills to the brim, all storage capacity disappears, and in the parlance of water managers, a “theoretical spill” has occurred. This means any stored water is lost. The Montecito Water District has 8,000 acre-feet stored in San Luis, roughly twice what the agency produces in a year. The City of Santa Barbara has about 5,500 acre-feet parked there, roughly twothirds what it’s currently using. It’s little wonder then that the Montecito district held a special emergency meeting Monday. District manager Nick Turner said in a worst-case scenario, it could transfer its stored water to a reservoir controlled by the Irvine Water District. But the cost in water charged to make such a transfer happen is expensive, and Montecito could salvage only 40 percent. The San Luis Reservoir is shared by the California Department of Water Resources and the federal Bureau of Reclamation. In the highly convoluted and equally counterintuitive world of water storage, the Bureau of Reclamation may have storage space in the San Luis Reservoir even if the state’s capacity has “spilled.” In that eventuality, South Coast agencies might be able to “park” some of their stored water with the feds. That’s an iffy solution at best. When this news trickled down to water district managers late last Thursday, they were notified odds were better than 50 percent the San Luis Reservoir would spill by the end of January. But with the arrival of the Pineapple Express last week, all bets were off. n

How Many Homeless?

F

or the third time in six years, organizers with the Central Coast Collaborative on Homelessness (C3H) is beating the bushes for volunteers willing to help count the number of homeless throughout Santa Barbara County. According to Chuck Flacks with C3H and Emily Allen of Common Ground, about 200 volunteers will be needed for four hours the afternoon of Thursday, January 26.

This year’s homeless count —known as the Point in Time index—will be less time consuming by design in hopes of reaching more homeless people. Two years ago, volunteers equipped with smart phones were dispatched into the pre-dawn darkness two days in a row in search of homeless on their own turf. When they found them, volunteers had a list of intensely personal questions— designed to determine fragility and vulnerability— that took 45 minutes to complete. ability By contrast, this year’s questionnaire will take 10 minutes, and none of the personal details regarding mental health, drug abuse, health concerns, or sexual behavior will be sought. By making the questionnaire shorter, Flacks and Allen said they hoped more people could be interviewed.

This year, the homeless will be encouraged to show up at designated locations —Alameda Park in downtown Santa Barbara, for example — rather than sending volunteers in search of homeless encampments. (From 9-11 p.m., however, some volunteers will venture from the centralized count locations looking for individuals to count and interview.) Those homeless who agree to be interviewed will receive a cereal bar, fresh socks, and a $5 gift certificate to Starbucks. The count is required by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) every two years for communities receiving federal funds to address problems associated with homelessness. Santa Barbara County received $2.5 million last year in HEW dollars. The count includes homeless people living in shelters, emergency warming centers, and RV dwellers enrolled with the New Beginnings program. The count results are used to determine service needs. Two years ago, the count tabulated 1,455 homeless people in Santa Barbara County. Two years prior, it — Nick Welsh was 1,466.

GaTHer ’rouNd: Susan Epstein ran this week’s Progressive Coalition meeting, where participants broke into groups that focused on immigration rights, health care, and other topics.

progressive Coalition Reincarnated

A

bout 85 people showed up for a meeting convened by the Santa Barbara Progressive

Coalition, reincarnated by the election of President-elect Donald Trump after an eight-year hiatus, to hammer out local actions they could take in response to political changes promised by the new administration. The group, meeting at La Casa de la Raza, broke into five sub-groups that focused on immigrant rights, health care, reproductive choice, the environment, and what, if any, counter-inaugural action would take place in Santa Barbara. To date, the Women’s Political Committee has chartered 10 buses—enough to carry 585 people — to the Million Women’s March in Los Angeles on January 21. The Santa Barbara Independent chartered four more. As of deadline, there’s been talk of a rally taking place at De la Guerra Plaza at noon on January 20, with those assembled marching from City Hall to the County Administration Building a few blocks away. Those focusing on immigrant rights announced they will ask the county supervisors to declare Santa Barbara a “sanctuary county” and the City College Board of Trustees to declare the campus there offlimits to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. Those seeking to protect the Affordable Care Act from repeal—and similar cuts to Medicare and Medi-Cal—are planning to host a rally at De la Guerra Plaza this coming Sunday at noon, the same time Senator Bernie Sanders is scheduled to deliver a major speech on the issues. Part of the challenge confronting organizers was what elected officials to target. Salud Carbajal, Hannah-Beth Jackson, and Monique Limón—congressmember, state senator, and assemblymember, respectively—have already indicated their support on most issues having to do with Trump. Many in attendance were mainstays of the left-liberal environmentalist Democrat establishment, and the event could be described as the choir singing to itself. But others—like one prominent land-use attorney who frequently represents development interests—were less expected.

Cleveland May drop Year-Round schedule

C

leveland Elementary moved one step closer to transitioning from a year-round cal-

endar to a traditional school year as Santa Barbara Unified School District’s Board of Education voted unanimously on 1/10 to open discussions with the teachers union. The majority of polled parents are already on board, with families citing work- and vacationrelated conflicts associated with the year-around schedule, especially when those families have other children attending schools on a traditional schedule. Principal Gabriel Sandoval also spoke in favor of a traditional calendar. Since year-round teachers are used to getting a paycheck 12 months out of the year, the district and the union will be discussing a “deferred net pay” system that skims a bit from the traditional year’s 10 monthly checks to be paid out in July and August. Since becoming a year-round school in 1998, when it had 600 students and was highachieving, Cleveland’s enrollment has steadily dropped, in large part, the data suggests, because families were having trouble adapting to the calendar. Today, Cleveland holds 347 students and has one of the highest absentee rates among the district’s 13 elementary schools. — Keith Hamm

ernment agency most people never heard of — the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) — Marjorie Kirn has been meeting and greeting with a vengeance. “One of the things I heard is there’s a need to improve relationships,” said Kirn, who spent the past 24 years working for the Merced County Association of Governments, the last four as the chief executive. SBCAG dispenses millions of dollars a year in state and federal road construction repair money to all local governments. It funds the freeway-widening project and efforts to expand commuter rail services, and bankrolls area bus systems and alternative transit options. Any of these objectives are challenging enough even with harmonious relations. With bad blood, they’re considerably harder. When Kirn left her previous gig, Merced County residents just approved a sales-tax hike to fund $450 million in road and transit improvements over the next 30 years. Even though two mayors actively campaigned against the tax, the measure passed with 71 percent of the vote. Kirn structured the measure so that 50 percent of the revenues went to local governments. Kirn takes over an agency struggling to secure the funds needed to widen the freeway from Carpinteria to downtown Santa Barbara. She also inherits a legal controversy whether the environmental analysis conducted for the freeway widening adequately reflected its impacts, mitigations, and alternatives. When the freeway widening was first proposed and funding for it approved — in the form of Measure A — commuter rail service was promised along with the added freeway lanes. While considerable progress has been made to widen the freeway, the commuter rail option has proved more elusive. “The train is a major priority to me,” Kirn said. “I want to — Nick Welsh see that happen.”

on a rainy day. When it started to drizzle as he began to take the oath, he practically declared himself the rain god. He brings his 15-month-old daughter, Ya’Ash, to various events, even changing her diaper at a packed fundraiser featuring Bill Clinton at the Canary hotel. His wife posted a photo on Facebook of him smiling brightly in the shower with Ya’Ash.“I’d prefer people to know I’m an actual human being,” he said, “not something a consultant created from focus groups and polling.” Though she does not have any Facebook photos in the shower, Hartmann does not come across as uptight. She has had a full career in academia and environmental law. She is like a polished hippie. She rides horses, and Jackson Browne played at her fundraiser. She will join the Women’s March in Los Angeles on the day after Trump’s inauguration. Her adversaries, however, painted her as a heavy-handed regulator during the campaign, complaining that when she was on the Planning Commission, she aligned

herself with South Coast environmental elitism without considering the practical reality of North County. But her campaign argued that criticism was flawed. Most of the commission’s votes were unanimous. The former 1st and 3rd district supervisors Salud Carbajal, now a member of the U.S. Congress, and Doreen Farr, who retired, were both known for a willingness to compromise. Even conservatives said Carbajal often struck a deal, and Farr judiciously studied the issues. Their final meeting in December was a chummy ceremony that lasted for hours. To be sure, Williams and Hartmann stand for firm environmental regulations, which could be hardened if the Trump administration amends the offshore oilleasing agreement or federal air-quality standards. After all, Hartmann was an attorney with the U.S. Department of the Interior when Ronald Reagan came into office, and she was struck by how quickly “he was dismantling programs rather than trying to create them. I expect major changes.” n

Anti-Semitism in Our Time Bernard-Henri Lévy Discusses New Book, The Genius of Judaism

B

How do Brexit, Farrage, le Pen, and now trump figure into the surfeit of anti-Semitism? there are a host of contradictions here in respect to jews and israel. True. Take Trump, for example. Until very recently, he made statements strongly tinged with anti-Semitism (as when he said to a group of Jewish Republicans,

I made a documentary ussian/t titled Peshmerga that was filmed along the 600-mile front between Daesh [ISIS] and the Kurds. One of the many things that I took away from that effort was the deep respect of the Kurds for Jewish memory and, in particular, for the part of that memory that occurred on their land. I filmed many examples of that respect, which is as rare (in the region) as it is moving. Set against that, you have the ingratitude of the international community toward the Kurds, an ingratitude that is not going to be resolved or improved by a Russo-TurkoTrumpist alliance.

He has fought for Bangladesh independence and has been a ceaseless ally of the Kurds, and he is believed by many to have single-handedly prompted the world’s intervention in Libya. A former socialist, he was a founder of the “Nouveaux Philosophes” movement in 1976 and is an agile and erudite debater on all matters great and small. I heard from Lévy a few days ago — literally from the battle of Mosul, where he has been with Kurds during the ongoing siege —to discuss his new book, The Genius of Judaism, a consequential, provocative book of prescient timeliness on anti-Semitism in the age of Trump, Brexit, the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, and the perils of Islamic fundamentalism. Lévy will be speaking at UCSB’s Campbell Hall this Saturday, January 14, at 8 p.m.

in your view, jews being called “the chosen people” is a huge and woeful semantic error. But it is unclear to me what you regard as the accurate translation. The treasured people, [those who are the] depository of a treasure, a treasure that belongs not only to them but also to all nations, to all of humanity. The Jews, in other words, have a responsibility to and for the world. To be a Jew is to be in a relationship not with oneself but with others. And this relationship is called messianism.

y cite the history and origins of anti-Semitism you and point out its current incarnations. is fundamentalist/extremist islam the most dangerous form of it today? Well, Islamic extremism is indeed fundamentally anti-Semitic for the simple reason that it rejects Islam’s debt to Judaism and nurses the illusion of a spontaneously created Islam. In the course of this delusion about its own origins, it has to deal with Judaism, which is the origin par excellence, the beginning of the beginnings, the body of thought to which all monotheistic religions, Islam included, are inextricably indebted. Islamic extremists do not want to hear about this debt or any other, which is why they harbor the same hatred for Christianity, to which Islam is also indebted. Parenthetically, that is one of the reasons for today’s new alliance of Christians and Jews: They face a common and violent enemy. While the BdS movement is pervasive in europe, it is gaining popularity in the u.S.; even at ucSB, students speak of instances of anti-Semitism that Bernard-Henri Lévy they believe stemmed from BdS. But for some in this generation, it is almost like their Vietnam. or is antiSemitism, as you say, dressed up as anti-Zionism, more pernicious? in your view, what are BdS’s most grievous flaws? “You’re not going to vote for me because you know I don’t The Vietnam generation was fighting for and in the name want your money”). of freedom, rights, and democracy.

NOTHING TO FEAR BUT EVERYTHING:

Disgraced former president and evil foreign policy genius Richard Milhous Nixon would have celebrated his 104th birthday this past Monday. Were he still alive, Nixon, no doubt, would be spinning in his grave. The grimly cynical realpolitik that Nixon perfected, however, has been replaced by a new wild-hair global political impulse, particularly as it relates to what was formerly known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Nixon made history by breaking with his anti-commie witch-hunter past and establishing diplomatic relations with “Red” China. This was done with the explicit purpose of containing the Soviet Union. Since then, of course, the Soviet Union has collapsed and has been replaced by Vlad “the Impaler” Putin. Where Nixon embraced China, President-elect Donald Trump antagonizes. Where Nixon antagonized the Soviets, Trump embraces Putin, belittling, until only recently, allegations that Putin interfered

in our most recent presidential election

to help get Trump elected. It’s arguable precisely what impact the Russian hacks and leaks ultimately had on the election result— though it’s obvious they set Hillary Clinton back on her heels — but Russia’s involvement would appear to be settled fact. The speed with which Trump is reversing the fundamental global alignment of the past 50 years is sufficient to induce whiplash. One hopes there’s something to it beyond a

fawning infatuation with tough guys, bad boys, and dictators. Maybe Trump believes Putin can help wipe out ISIS. Maybe he has

private business interests in Russia. This week, we hear for the first time that Russian intelligence agencies had bugged the Moscow hotel room Trump stayed in three years ago when he hired Russian prostitutes to put on a golden shower orgy for his viewing pleasure. Under this scenario, the Russians would have had “something” on Trump. Trump predictably tweeted his outrage. “We are now living in Nazi Germany,” he protested. Likewise, Putin dismissed the allegations with customary scorn and contempt. Personally, I have no doubt the hotel room was bugged and that Trump’s tastes where rain dances are concerned were every bit as kinky as described. But given Trump’s singular lack of shame, such tapes—no matter how explicit—wouldn’t afford Putin any leverage. In fact, I wouldn’t put it past Trump to push the dirty dossier story — which major media outlets have allegedly been sitting on — himself. Certainly, it distracts from the confirmation hearings about Jefferson Beauregard “I am not a racist” Sessions III for attorney general or former Exxon exec Rex Tillerson —yes, it’s Rex—whose coziness with Putin exceeds even that of Trump’s. When it comes to assaults upon the conscience of an amoral, indifferent universe, Tillerson ranks as a twofer. First, there’s the Order of Friendship Award bestowed upon Tillerson by Putin

himself. Then there’s the fact that Exxon spent millions of dollars denying the fact of global warming even though its own scientists had confirmed the phenomenon dating back to the 1970s. To the morally unambiguous, that might seem like fraud. In the brave new factfree world, it’s free speech. In the past week, I had occasion to interview Mark Harris, a filmmaker whose documentary about the popular uprising in the Ukraine, Breaking Point, will be screening in the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Harris reminded me how Putin invaded the Ukraine — the bread basket of the Eurasian continent — in 2014 after his stooge and puppet Viktor Yanukovych was forced to flee in the face of Ukrainian opposition. Putin famously denied Russian troops were in any way involved — conspicuously, the invaders wore no national insignia of any kind — despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. If Trump and Putin regard facts with the same casual indifference, it’s not surprising. Paul Manafort, who functioned as Trump’s campaign manager until being famously fired, had provided similar services for Putin puppet Yanukovych, whose troops killed 123 Ukrainians while putting down that country’s equivalent of Tiananmen Square. Like other Manafort clients — Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines comes to mind—Yanukovych was stratospherically corrupt. Even after Yanukovych fled, Manafort’s services were deployed, seeking to resurrect the fortunes of his party. Manafort’s strategy was simple and chillingly effective. He rebranded the party as the Oppo Bloc and gathered to it “the larg-

est number of people opposed to the current government … avoid anything concrete, and just become a symbol of opposition.” Sound familiar? Meanwhile, the Putin government spent billions via its Russia Today media machine spinning the invasion as an uprising of Russian-speaking Ukrainians. Compared to Trump, Nixon looks farsighted and brilliant. It’s worth remembering Nixon had no qualms about interfering with other nation’s elections. When Chileans elected socialist Salvador Allende in the 1970s, the United States made that country’s economy “bleed” and instigated a military coup. Henry Kissinger, Nixon’s henchman, famously explained that the United States need not “stand by” because of the “irresponsibility” of Chilean voters. “The issues are much too important to be left to the Chilean voters to decide for themselves,” he declared. Recently released documents reveal Nixon played it the other way, too. According to written logs kept by Nixon White House confidante, Watergate co-conspirator, and, yes, Santa Barbara resident H.R. Haldeman, Nixon personally told him to “monkey wrench” the Paris Peace initiated by President Lyndon Johnson to end the war in Vietnam. If the talks succeeded, Nixon worried, he’d have a tougher time beating Democrat Hubert Humphrey in 1968. The peace talks failed. Five years later, Nixon pulled out of Vietnam. In the intervening years, a lot of dead bodies piled up. The world doesn’t just seem upside down; it is. Time to stand on your head. And happy — Nick Welsh birthday, Tricky Dick.

Trump stakes

How the Donald Could Blow a $100 Billion Hole in California’s Budget

F

or the foreseeable future, there is one and only one political question that truly matters to California: Can Sacramento’s dominant Democrats fend off Republican supremacy in Washington? As Governor Brown and the Legislature returned to the Capitol this week, while the GOP’s Ayn Rand Congress began action on the appointments and wishes of our 46 percent president, the shape and scope of a looming state versus feds brawl over California’s progressive policies began to emerge:

The $100 billion anTe. For those keeping score at home, the most important number to know is this: $95.98 billion. That is the amount of federal money now flowing through California’s $267 billion budget, about 36 percent of the total, as calculated by the arithmetically trustworthy California Budget & Policy Center. As a political matter, it represents the dollars at stake as legislative leaders ratchet up their rhetoric of defiance in vowing to resist President-elect Trump’s campaign promises to repeal Obamacare, ignore the “hoax” of climate change, and crack down on immigration. It’s hard to imagine even Trump seeking to slash such a vast sum in retaliation for state officials refusing to help him with deportations, for example, but then again this is the guy whose head exploded when Meryl Streep tweaked him at the Golden Globes, so who knows? issue #1. In California, the feds help pay for many programs, including but not limited to unemployment insurance, welfare benefits, public schools, higher education, roads, highways, and other transportation projects. About 6 in 10 dollars, however, finance health-care benefits for about 13 million lowincome Californians through the Medi-Cal program. The number of Californians covered grew substantially after the passage of the Affordable Care Act. One of Obamacare’s aims was extending health insurance to the “working poor,” so the law provided federal payments to many low-income people who had been ineligible; today, nearly four million people, previously without insurance, have Medi-Cal coverage. As Republican Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell swiftly move ahead on Republican campaign promises to “repeal and replace” Obamacare (the second part of the alliterative formulation remains elusive) these folks likely will be the first in the middle of the federal-state throwdown. The GoP conundrum. There is a significant wrinkle in the political calculus of health care.

In Santa Barbara County, about 140,000 people, or one-third the population, according to the aforementioned Budget & Policy Center study, now have health insurance through Medi-Cal. While substantial, it is a considerably smaller population slice than in many inland counties that voted for Trump, where half or more of residents enjoy Medi-Cal coverage. From Tulare (55 percent) to Merced (51.5 percent), Fresno (49.9), and other rural counties, California Republican members of Congress face a political dilemma: vote with their party for the partisan promise of “repealing Obamacare” or on behalf of constituents who have health insurance for the first time —not only millions on Medi-Cal but also tens of thousands of others with private insurance through Obamacare. biG man in conGress. The most visible pol on this issue is Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who represents the Central Valley’s 23rd District, with one of the highest Medi-Cal enrollments in the state. It’s worth noting that while McCarthy has freely blathered on the subject to the Washington Post —“I think once [Obamacare] is repealed you will have hopefully fewer people playing politics”— both the Fresno Bee and the Bakersfield Californian report he did not return calls on recent stories they published on the issue. new sheriff(s) in Town. Rep. Xavier Becerra—Gov. Brown’s nominee for state attorney general who was to appear this week for confirmation hearings—in a prepared, nine-page statement listed nearly a dozen issues on which California is at odds with Trump or congressional Republicans, from immigration and environment to gun control and racial profiling. “The Federal Government’s powers to force such a change at the state level or locally are very limited,” he said at one point, in a reference to a law enforcement policy that might apply equally to other issues. “If an attempt is made to do so, or if a threat of withholding federal funding is made to force such a change, I would treat this as a serious federal overreach … and would look forward to working with our Governor and the Legislature to fight vigorously to defeat such a policy.” Emphasis ours. Doubling down, the Legislature meanwhile decided to spend $75,000 to enlist the law firm of ex-U.S. attorney general Eric Holder for the fight. As Senate President Kevin de León told the New York Times, “This means we are — Jerry Roberts very, very serious.”

Maurice Charles Lucky, 88, Scottsdale, Arizona died December 30th, 2016. Maurice “Charles” was surrounded by his loved ones at the time of his passing. Charles was the son of Maurice Cecil and Gertrude Malone Lucky, and was born in Houston, Texas on January 11th, 1928, where he grew up. His father was a geologist, which influenced Charles’ interest in engineering. He attended Rice University, where he earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering, class of 1948. Charles had a prolific career as an expert in forging press and ring mill design, creating manufacturing facilities for companies around the world. His designs were primarily focused in oil production and aviation industries, and today his work continues to provide thousands of jobs and positively impact those industries. Charles had a tremendous enthusiasm for travel. He toured the world with his beloved first wife of 40 years, Judith Hope Lucky, followed by more worldwide travels with his current and equally cherished wife of 19 years, Gail Lucky. Charles loved sailing and reading, and also enjoyed the arts. He toured galleries around the world, and also appreciated fine wines and scotch. He was honored with membership in the international wine organization the Commanderie de Bordeaux. Charles was active in several charities including the Arizona Historical Society, the United Way of Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Performing Arts Foundation and Braille Institute Auxiliary of Santa Barbara. Charles also served in leadership roles for the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara, California. Charles was a member of Pinnacle Presbyterian Church, Scottsdale, Arizona. Charles is preceded in death by his first wife, Judith Hope Lucky and survived by his current wife, Madelon Gail Lucky, three children, Matthew Craig Lucky and spouse, Lisa Lucky; Mark Burdon Lucky and wife, Amy Lucky; Noel Lucky and her spouse, Jeff Ris and five grandchildren, Matthew Clay Lucky, Laura Valliant Lucky, James Burdon Lucky, Alicia Hope Lucky and Jackson Davis Lucky.

On Thursday, December 22, 2016, Yvette Stanley passed peacefully from this world, with her husband Kriss Stanley by her side. Yvette Cecile Franklin was born on January 31, 1969 at Goleta Valley Hospital. After her mother died she was adopted and raised, from the age of 2, by her maternal grandmother Annie Walker, in Santa Barbara, California. She attended Franklin Elementary School, Santa Barbara Junior High and Santa Barbara High School. She loved kids, and this led to jobs in the after-school programs at the Franklin Center and Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation. She also had a job as a much-loved nanny. A good word to describe Yvette would be faith. She dedicated her life to Jehovah on November 25, 1989, and her faith became stronger as her illness progressed. She truly lived by what the Bible describes as true faith “the assured expectation of things hoped for.” Yvette’s hope never wavered, no matter what obstacle or adversity came her way. She was fearless in her hope and in her love for Jehovah God and her many friends and “spiritual” family members. Another good word to describe Yvette would be family. She valued connection above all, seeking to knit together family and friends, whether to share Scooby snacks, beat you at Scrabble, watch I Love Lucy episodes, or play Spit with the kids. Her door was open to all. And finally, a good word to describe Yvette would be strength -- the strength to continue to provide love and support to family and friends through several years of battling the illnesses that ultimately claimed her. No complaints, no bitterness -- that was not Yvette. She had the strength of acceptance and once again, her focus was outward, shining on loved ones. She was preceded in death by her mother, Elva Lee Walker, and father, Cecil Franklin, maternal grandmother Annie Walker, maternal grandfather James Wafer, and brother Robert Brown. She is survived by her husband Kriss Stanley, siblings Denise Daniels, Jimmy Brown, Demetria Pope, Darryl Gilbert, Donna Hastings, Julia Shands, and all of the friends and family --“framily” -- too numerous to mention here. Yvette had a big reach and the gift of making each person in her life feel special. To some she was “TT”, to some a second mom, to all she is the one we will love always and carry in our hearts forever. The family would like to thank Dr. Margaret Ray and all the medical

Rod Stevens passed away unexpectedly in the early hours of January 2, 2017 at the age of 87. Rod was born in Portland, Maine on November 25, 1929 to Margaret E. (nee Johnson) and John Harold Stevens. He graduated from St. George High School, Evanston, IL and attended the University of Notre Dame, South Bend, IN majoring in journalism. He then attended Bryant and Stratton Business College, studying business administration. He was drafted and is a veteran of the Korean War, having seen active service in 1952. Upon his discharge, he became a salesman at his father’s company, Paramount Pictures, in Chicago, Il. He later worked as a salesman at Addressograph Multigraph, GAF and others. He moved to Santa Barbara and worked at Cottage Hospital in security for many years, retiring to Lompoc, CA. Rod was a devout fan of the Bears, Notre Dame football, and his beloved Cubbies. A favorite memory of Rod’s was as young man riding the “L” down to Wrigley with his brother Jack to cheer on the “Lovable Losers” as Bleacher Bums. Rod loved Jazz music, books, and movies and would share his passion for the Kingston Trio with his son Pete and his love of musicals, especially Danny Kaye, with his daughter Megan. Rod adored his family and would share pictures and stories of them with everyone he met. It was not uncommon for his children to meet friends and acquaintances of Rod’s only to discover that they already knew everything about them. He is loved, missed, and survived by his children: Peter Stevens (Christa), Megan Scouten (nee Stevens) (David), grandchildren Samuel, Walter, Evelyn, and Shayla, as well as his sister, Margaret (Peggy) Stevens (Dennis Story) and the mother of his children and longtime friend, Cathy Stevens. He was preceded in death by his parents and his younger brother and lifelong best friend, John H. (Jack) Stevens, II. In accordance with his wishes, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Heart Association or Cottage Hospital

T

he High-Occupancy Vehicle Lanes project being attempted by Caltrans on the 101 up through Montecito will cost about $380 million. Not all the funding is in place, and Caltrans lacks the funds for all the needed improvements to the traffic intersections near on- and off-ramps due to the increase in traffic. I have suggested to Caltrans a number of times that it should set up a toll gate on the 101 northbound near the Ventura River and the Ventura County Fairgrounds, Monday through Friday, during the heavy morning commute. Like the toll gate on the Golden Gate Bridge, this one should be efficient, automated, and not cause any slowdown in traffic flow. Carpools, trucks, buses, and vans would be exempt, of course. The revenue could fund the freeway-widening project and perhaps help fund commuter rail service between Ventura and Santa Barbara/Goleta. This could solve some of the goals of the project and provide funding from users who don’t live in and pay taxes to Santa Barbara County. —Blair Whitney, Montecito

Sick Making

I

move into 2017 with a great deal of despair regarding health coverage. Under present conditions, I may choose to pay $200 a month for employer-provided insurance for myself, husband, and son, which makes us compliant. Beyond that, over $2,000 a year goes for insurance that will provide little more than annual exams. If anything serious happens, it is 100 percent out of pocket. No deductibles to meet because all the insurance offers is very limited “preventive” care. How this can be classified as insurance is beyond me. The last time I went on the Covered California website, it offered Bronze-level coverage for the three of us for $236 a month with a deductible of around $5,000 a piece. Previously, a Covered California person quoted me $190 just for my husband. I had another rep tell me

that if my work offered insurance, I had to accept it, no exceptions. Yet another said, no, I could opt out, which made more sense. But all the inconsistent information is exhausting and crazy making, and you spend a good deal of time on hold. By law we carry car insurance to protect ourselves and others, and that insurance actually looks magnificent compared to what we get for mandated health coverage. I can chose not to drive a car, but I can’t chose not to have health insurance. Or I can be unemployed and get full coverage from the State. Funny how that works. Those who have good insurance through your work, don’t take it for granted! I ended 2016 uninsured and at a loss as to what to do next. [Full op-ed at independent — C. O’Rourke, S.B. .com/opinions.]

obituaries Patricia L. Hickey 09/15/26-12/22/16

Patricia L Hickey (Patsy Lou) 9-15-26-12-22-16. Patsy was born in St. Paul, MN. She and her beloved older brother (deceased) lost their parents at age 4 and 5, but were lovely raised by their grandparents with good Midwestern values. Patsy married and had 3 children - Dennis, Tom, and Kathy. She became a single parent when her daughter was born. She soon became a career Mom, but her main focus was her children. They were the light of her life. Her working career was mostly in sales positions in which she excelled, but had a tough fight back then as women were still not recognized as equal in the job. When the children were raised, Patsy decided to abandon Minnesota and its weather, and she moved to beautiful Santa Barbara. The 3 children soon followed. She again went into sales work until she retired from full time employment, and continued to work part time for another 20 years. Patsy had a truly optimistic attitude, which carried her through life with a big smile. She never complained and was loved and respected by all who knew her. She had a joy for life and was often consulted by friends and family for advice. She was an avid rummy tile player, loved jigsaw puzzles, and playing gin rummy on the computer. She will be dearly missed by family and friends.

Kendall is survived by his parents: Kurt Joseph Schramm (Shari) of San Luis Obispo and Laurie Lea Brown of Santa Barbara; Sisters: Emily Schramm of Oakland and Brita Schramm of Carlsbad; loving aunts, uncles, and cousins; and Grandparents: Joseph Schramm of Thousand Oaks, and Sherburne and Marianne Brown of Moraga. May Kendall’s soul and spirit travel the universe with joy, happiness, and love. For those who knew him and were touched by his presence, remember when he showed you love and kindness, and made you smile. Please pay it forward to others in order to honor his life and carry his memory onward, for the greatest loss occurs when we forget.

Washington: The New Twilight Zone

dead and head-shakingly ponder 2017, we must ask why we elected a dunderhead as president. We could do so much better. The choices are many, both men and women. (Dodger legend Vin Scully, for instance, a man of honor and character.) Luckily, our golden enclave of Santa Barbara, so far from Washington, so close to heaven and the beach (if you can afford the price of admission), remains an oasis of relative peace and quiet in a world gone tragically bonkers. I know what they say about us, that we’re smug, self-satisfied, and cynical. Oscar Wilde said it first. A cynic, he said in the play Lady Windermere’s Fan, is someone “who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.” That’s not quite true, of course. We know the value of our homes to the penny. In Washington, heads are already rolling in Congress. Obamacare, with 20 million people relying on it for health insurance, has a target on its back and is on life support. Planned Parenthood, long-hated by the GOP, is as good as dead. These are just the first casualties, of course. Much more to come. Don’t tell me you’re surprised. The latest crackpot bait-and-switch scheme out of Washington is Trump, who,

having won the election in part by pledging to build a border wall, with Mexico paying the bill, now wants U.S. taxpayers to foot the construction cost. Mexico will reimburse us the estimated $25 billion later, Trump assures us. If you believe that, he has a wall to sell you. Is it symbolic of the selfish, careless new era in D.C. that on opening night of the glitzy new MGM National Harbor casino there the chair of the county liquor commission was arrested for DUI? HORSES, HORSES: We can only

regard 2017 with trepidation. Perhaps it’s best to avert our eyes, hug our children tighter than ever, and consider the pleasures here at home. Awaiting is the smack of a cascarone on your head. The sound of a Fiesta mariachi band piping away in a lower State restaurant. The music is comfortingly familiar. So is the sun on your neck the first morning the June gloom finally burns off. The saucer-eyed black cat staring at you from next door. The way practically anything can grow here, from tropical bananas and bougainvillea to crabgrass.

Learning from Your Students

“We have to be as entrepreneurial as an organization as these musicians will need to be in their careers,” said Reed. That means providing them with unique opportunities for career advancement, such as the Global Academy Fellowship Program with the New York Phil, as well as creating a new Alumni Enterprise Awards Program. Beginning with this season, all academy alumni are eligible to submit projects that, as stated in the Alumni Enterprise Awards Program call for submissions, “align with and/or challenge the Academy’s mission to further classical music education and/or cultivate discerning, appreciative, and adventurous audiences.” The academy’s National Advisory Council, a group that includes television producer/philanthropist Marcy Carsey and Juilliard School provost and dean Ara Guzelimian, will evaluate the applications this fall and award the winning proposals with grants of between $2,500 and $20,000. What’s perhaps more important is that the money will come with a mentor or mentors drawn from the top ranks of the classical music world who will be there to guide and promote the projects. Notice that the wording in that call for proposals includes the possibility that an alum might actually want to “challenge” the academy’s mission, and you’re on your way to grasping what’s most innovative about the vision of the organization under Reed’s stewardship. Sitting with him in his distinctly modern office, a space that’s hidden away within the more traditional décor of the freshly renovated Marilyn Horne Main House administration building, it’s easy to feel the pull of the future as it manifests in his excitement about learning from the fellows, even as the school is teaching them.

For boldness, the decision to put the New York Philharmonic in La Playa Stadium probably takes first prize, but a new Commissions and Premieres Program that launches this summer gives it some stiff competition. By bringing in guest composers, featuring distinguished alumni as composers and performers, and investing directly in the commissioning of new music, the academy takes a giant step toward its ambitious stated goal of “making Santa Barbara a front-line destination for music of today.” Matthew Aucoin, a 27-year-old phenomenon, returns after an almost unimaginably successful year in which he conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic, became artist-in-residence with the Los Angeles Opera, and conducted and performed his work with a who’s who of the world’s top musicians and orchestras. For example, if you happen to be in Salzburg, Austria, next Composer Matthew Aucoin week, stop by the Landestheater, where Aucoin will be conducting the Mozarteum Orchestra in the European premiere of his cantata The Orphic Moment. Aucoin thrilled at least two Santa Barbara audiences with his chamber opera Second Nature last summer—one was made up mostly of adults who came to hear him conduct the work in the evening at the Lobero Theatre, and another of children, who came for a special, free daytime performance of the work, which was commissioned by the Lyric Opera of Chicago and premiered at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Another rising star, Timo Andres, will make his Music Academy debut by presenting a West Coast premiere, as will London-based pianist and composer Pianist Stephen Hough Stephen Hough. In all, there will be 10 world and/or West Coast premieres this summer, six of which are academy commissions. It’s hard to overstate the importance of this initiative. Commissioning new work is expensive and risky, as the vast majority of new compositions only receive a handful of performances before being relegated to programming oblivion. In fact, that’s one of the reasons that, as Posey put it, “second and third performances are often as important as premieres” to the life chances of a new work. By combining the two approaches — commissioning and premiering — into a single program, and investing in the future through a network that includes talented young composers such as

Aucoin and Andres along with such distinguished academy alums as Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, the academy makes a move that promises to shift the center of attention for contemporary composers to the Central Coast of California for two full months every summer for decades to come. Taken in tandem with the Ojai Music Festival, which has been presenting the best in new music for almost exactly as long as the Music Academy has been training the best new musicians, the Commissions and Premieres Program inaugurates an era in which our community will witness an annual season of irreproachable choices that lasts two full months, from the first week in June until the first week in August.

As one important alliance, the three-year partnership with Alan Gilbert’s New York Phil, winds down, another and more permanent one begins, this time with the fabled Steinway & Sons. This summer, the academy joins an elite club by becoming an official All-Steinway institution. There are now 55 (!) Steinway pianos on the Miraflores campus, including a new Hamburg model D concert grand in Hahn Hall that was hand-selected at the factory by Jeremy Denk. Speaking of Denk, the MacArthur “genius grant”– winning pianist, composer, and author has stepped up his participation in 2017, moving from guest artist to full-time faculty status. Two distinctive events are planned to mark the achievement of the coveted All-Steinway status: On May 21, the academy’s 70th Anniversary Gala will include a recital featuring famous pianists who are official Steinway Artists, and later in the summer, the academy will launch its first solo piano competition. In addition to a substantial cash prize, the winner will receive a recital tour of Steinway venues nationwide. Of course, no Music Academy season would be complete without a great opera, and 2017 is no exception. Los Angeles–

based director James Darrah, known for creating extraordinary productions with unforgettable design elements, will collaborate with academy alum conductor Speranza Scappucci on Donizetti’s charming and hilarious The Elixir of Love. As always, the select Voice Program fellows lucky enough to be cast in this full production, which will be at the Granada Theatre on July 27 and 29, will be rehearsing and performing under the watchful eye and even more attentive ears of Voice Program Director Horne. Fans of great voices should also take note that the New York Philharmonic performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony will feature superstar alum soprano Susanna Phillips (’02, ’03) as a soloist. Phillips, who received rave reviews for her performance in the Metropolitan Opera’s recent production of Kaija Saariaho’s L’Amour Opera director James Darrah de Loin, is one of the most sought-after singers working today, and her appearance will only add further luster to this already stellar evening by the water. That special community performance at La Playa Stadium is, by the way, dedicated to the late Baroness Léni Fé Bland and made possible through partnerships with Santa Barbara City College and the City of Santa Barbara.

The Music Academy and You

If the availability of $10 Community Access tickets isn’t enough incentive to get you off the sofa and into the concert hall, you might consider another option: live streaming. The Music Academy will live-stream up to 20 events in the 2017 season, and there are many more performances archived at musicacademy.org. And on the subject of archives, a long-standing partnership with the UCSB Library will be renewed this season as the library mounts an exhibit of memorabilia celebrating the academy’s 70th anniversary and announces a commitment to digitize 400 of the most important reel-to-reel tapes documenting historic concerts going back to the academy’s earliest days and featuring such luminaries as Lotte Lehmann. Circling back to Reed and what he said about the direction that things are taking in this 70th anniversary year, it’s easy to see why applications for the program’s all-expenses-paid fellowships are increasing so rapidly and why the school is attracting better and better players all the time. “We are never comfortable,” Reed said of his board and staff. “We’re always pushing ourselves to be better.” But at the same time, the key to real and lasting progress in a creative field remains, according to Reed, on the side of the young and the talented. “We don’t have all the answers, and that’s one reason it’s so important to listen to our fellows. If we can find out what they are thinking and keep learning from them, we have a better chance to become what we want to be — an epicenter for innovation and curiosity and part of a community with a worldwide reputation as a place where people are living in a complete way.” In other words, it’s not just about the music but rather about the people and about empowering artists, and then “throwing open the doors” to let all of Santa Barbara in to hear what’s happening on the crest of that beautiful bluff overlooking the ocean in Montecito.

INNER FREEDOM: Ginny Kuhn (pictured in the background) leads a class at the Santa Barbara County Jail. She views her classes as a service to the inmates.

iHELP: “Replacing cracked screens makes up the majority of my work,” says iGeeks’ Daniel Guerrera.

Prison YoGa Project s.B. iGeeks Fixed My iPhone F

Brings Down Dog to Jail

ive years ago, Ginny Kuhn was asked on her graduate school application to the University of Santa Monica, “How do you plan to use your master’s degree in service of the world?” With 22 years of yoga experience, the Santa Barbara resident wanted to spread the practice’s healing ways to the incarcerated population, so Prison Yoga Project Santa Barbara (PYPSB) was her response.   Today, Kuhn instructs yoga at Santa Barbara County Jail and Los Prietos Boys Camp with fellow volunteer Mike Lewis. They are affiliated with the Prison Yoga Project, which was started 15 years ago by yogi James Fox at California’s San Quentin State Prison, and teach free, 90-minute yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices to interested inmates. Kuhn is careful to clarify that she’s not trying to “help” or “fix” the inmates but rather is motivated to “serve” them as they cultivate a yoga and meditation practice and find inner calm.   In early December, Kuhn and Lewis brought Fox and other speakers to town for a community event called “Working Freedom from the Inside,” which presented an in-depth look at how the work is changing incarcerated individuals both in Santa Barbara and around the world. The following day, Fox hosted a teacher training at Yoga Soup, where 40 participants learned how to use yoga to address violence and addiction among inmates.  “A challenging yoga class involves self-control and self-discipline and learning how important the breath is to calm the mind and calm the body,” said Fox, explaining that the practice has been empirically shown to help with impulse control

M

and to decrease anxiety, stress, depression, hostility, and PTSD, all of which have higher-than-average incidence rates in the incarcerated population. While working to make PYPSB financially selfsustainable, Kuhn is also seeking to add more classes and is on the lookout for more instructors. To learn more, see prisonyogasb.org. —Maureen Murdock

y old Apple iPhone 5S didn’t look like it had been dropped so much as spiked. Fortunately, it still showed dim signs of life beneath its powerfully shattered screen. I wanted to get it up and running as a dependable backup, but I didn’t feel like waiting for an appointment with Apple and paying full price for parts and labor. So I hit up iGeeks, a small shop just off Upper State Street, owned and operated by Daniel Guerrera. Within seconds, Guerrera had unfastened the damaged screen and was removing strange gunk from the phone innards with a tiny scraping tool. He talked as fast as he worked. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Guerrera graduated from Dos Pueblos High School and then the Art Institute of California–San Diego, where he specialized in graphic design and computer science. While designing ads for a friend who was doing iPhone repair, Guerrera showed an interest in the trade and learned firsthand from his buddy. Slowly, this new line of work took shape. He moved back to Santa Barbara, opened a hole-in-the-wall near La Cumbre Plaza, and then shared a retail space at the Sandman Inn on Upper State before landing at his present location about two years ago. “Replacing cracked screens makes up the majority of my work,” he said, gently filing the bent frame of my phone so the new screen would sit properly. “But I also replace a lot of batteries and charge ports.” He also repairs iPads. Guerrera saves on import costs by making and refurbishing his own screens, right there in the shop, with specialized machinery. That saves time, too, he added, which gives him the confidence to offer walk-in repairs that take 30 minutes or less. Mine was good to go in about 20 minutes. I’ve since heard that if my phone were covered under AppleCare — which I’ve never signed up for— for having it fixed by a third party would have voided that warranty. I tried to confirm that with Apple, but after 23 minutes on hold, I hung up.   “We’re here for the locals,” Guerrera said. “We’re quick, transparent, and there’s less waste.” For 2017, he’s expanding franchise opportunities for a mobile iGeeks phone-repair service, and he’s planning on opening a Buellton shop this spring. —Keith Hamm 16 West Calle Laureles, Suite B; 280-9118; igeeksb.com

Happily BaCk at minimum Wage

“Hip with a wink.” – Town & Country

by Carole Bennett

I

’ve heard that people have around five different careers in their lifetimes. I, for instance, was an executive for Columbia Pictures Television, founded my own talent agency, received a master’s in clinical psychology, penned two books, wrote columns for Huffington Post and Psychology Today, taught duplicate bridge, launched a small catering company, and started a doggie daycare service. But as I clock in to begin my shift, I can’t help but wonder why I am now working for minimum wage. What went wrong? Or did it go right?   After being my own boss the majority of my career, I suddenly found myself hovering around the 60-plus age group and feeling bored. Finding a job at this age in a small town like Santa Barbara is about as easy as a good-looking, smart, single woman finding a worthwhile companion. But I wanted to give it a try anyway. I homed in on what I enjoyed and which company might see past my age to appreciate my experience. That’s how I found Petco, which was hiring a grooming salon apprentice. It took me longer to fill out the online application than it should take to complete the SATs, but I forged ahead, sent the form into HR, and then took my résumé down to meet the manager at the Milpas store in person. Upon introducing myself to the tattooed, spiked-hair, angel-faced woman named Jill Abbiatti, I explained that, if anything, my age would be a plus: I was stable and responsible and would not make this job an exit ramp because of boredom or something better coming my way. Though she was younger than my youngest child, Jill was wise beyond her years, and I quickly realized that mutual respect and admiration would bridge our age gap. I got the job! At first, I was embarrassed to tell my friends that I was in a six-month program to learn dog grooming while being paid minimum wage. “Really, Carole?” they’d say. But after two weeks of bathing and brushing those adorable creatures, I was grateful to have found a new calling that added to my cacophony of experiences. I love new adventures and think this job will be the capper to all of the others. The other day, someone said I was on the fast-track to become the salon manager, which I relayed to my husband while beaming with pride. So, to all those who might be afraid to dip your toe in the employment pool again because of your age: Go for it. You have nothing to lose. I’m grateful that I was the boss at 40 and now am happy to have a boss at 60. n

COLLEGE-BOUND: Future Leaders of America serves Latino youth, who make up nearly two out of every three kids in S.B.

• A holistic emphasis, integrating mind and body, focused on recovery and growth

Future Leaders oF america Faces critical 2017 O

ne spring day in 2006, Eder Gaona-Macedo picked up a crumpled envelope that had been lying for three days in the hallway of his downtrodden Westside apartment. It was his acceptance letter to UCLA. He was in disbelief. A high school counselor initially told GaonaMacedo he could not go to college, because he lacked legal status. A Mexican immigrant who came to California when he was just four years old, Gaona-Macedo did not know he was undocumented until a decade later when he went through an immigration checkpoint on Milpas Street. “I realized I had to live two lives,” he said. “One at home, fearful, and one at school.” But he eventually found role models at Future Leaders of America, which was founded in Oxnard and Santa Barbara to empower Latino youth. It will celebrate its 35th anniversary in January. At his first Future Leaders camp, Gaona-Macedo learned to be assertive and polished his public-speaking skills. “I found my voice,” he said. “It was mindblowing.” They were also “one of the first people I told I was undocumented,” he recalled. “They said, ‘You can still go to college. You can still do anything you want to do. It’s going to be a little harder.’ That was really life-changing.” Now, after earning a bachelor’s degree from UCLA and a master’s degree from Columbia, Gaona-Macedo, 28, is the executive director at Future Leaders. “Our goal is to build a college-going culture,” he said. The region’s fastest-growing population, Latinos make up nearly two out of every three kids in Santa Barbara. In December, they hosted a three-day conference at Camp Whittier in the Los Padres National Forest, where 90 participants attended. Kids practiced personaldevelopment skills while parents learned how to navigate the school system. “A lot of our families come from low-income backgrounds,” Gaona-Macedo said. “They don’t have the know-how to help their kids get to college.” The year 2017 will be crucial for Future Leaders. In early December, Gaona-Macedo and outreach organizer Vicente Garcia turned out about 40 people to the Santa Barbara school board meeting, where trustees adopted a resolution proclaiming all campuses as safe zones for undocumented students. And next year, Gaona-Macedo plans to bring some of the roughly 8,000 alumni back to the program so they can share stories about “what they went through.” See futureleadersnow.org. —Kelsey Brugger

Abortion

he wasn’t trying to start a revolution. But it was September 2015, the House had just voted to defund Planned Parenthood — and Amelia Bonow found the one-sided conversation exhausting. “Women like myself were feeling so incredibly angry and disillusioned and helpless about the way that our rights were being taken away from us,” says Bonow, a Seattle bartender and grad student at the time.“It was clear to me I was not using the full range of my voice as a feminist and a woman who’d had an abortion.” On a whim, she made a Facebook post stating that she’d had an abortion and was not only grateful for it but happy about it. “The narrative of those working to defund Planned Parenthood,” she wrote, “relies on the assumption that abortion is still something to be whispered about.” Her friend, popular Jezebel writer Lindy West, tweeted a screenshot of the post to her 60,000 followers with the hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion — and a movement was born. Within a few days, the hashtag was used 250,000 times as women all over the world tweeted about their own abortion experiences: the good, the bad, and the unapologetic. There’s the mother of five who didn’t want more kids. The women whose contraceptives failed or for whom Plan B failed. Those who were raped or in abusive relationships. Women with cancer or whose fetuses had fatal abnormalities. Or who simply didn’t want to have a baby. “It was an organic explosion of ‘We’re not going to be quiet about this anymore,’” says Bonow, 32, pointing out that most Americans identify as pro-choice. “The anti-choice movement has really email: starshine@roshell.com capitalized on our silence. And I don’t think they can get away with legislating this issue in a way that is so profoundly out of touch with the lives, values, and experiences of mainstream Americans if we’re actually talking about our abortions.” Of course, the brazenness of the movement enraged opponents. “There were a lot of people saying, ‘How dare you? You should be ashamed of yourselves,’” says Bonow, who moved out of her apartment for a while after receiving personal threats. But she makes no effort to soft-pedal her stance — and doesn’t much care how others may judge her. In a piece she wrote for Salon.com, she talks about stealing a pregnancy test from Walgreen’s and getting high on pills before her abortion (“because I like getting high, not because I was scared”). Does she worry that her brash tone might play right into her opponents’ narrative that abortion is a too-easy out for irresponsible — even immoral — people? “I’m not trying to shock anyone or make anyone uncomfortable,” says Bonow, who insists that she’s merely a conversation starter, not the new voice of the abortion-rights movement. “I’m just helping women talk about their lives, and there are as many kinds of abortion stories as there are individuals in this world. But my experience is well within the range of a normal experience — and we’ve never been told that’s okay. It seems shocking because we’ve never heard a woman talk about her abortion at all, let alone be casual or flippant about it.” Bonow hopes to reach out beyond the coasts and urban areas to women in red states who are ready to share their abortion stories — without having to apologize for it, finally. “Abortion is not a ‘necessary evil,’” she says. “It’s a positive component of a society helping women live their best lives. And we can’t fight against what’s being lobbed at us by saying we’re sorry all the time.” Amelia Bonow will speak on Wednesday, January 18, at the New Vic (33 W. Victoria St.) at 6 p.m. as part of the Santa Barbara Pro-Choice Coalition’s celebration of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. See etcsb.org/ rental-shows/index.

To celebrate his 50th birthday, Odell ran 50 miles—201 and 1/3 times around the Westmont College track.

As the skies began to darken, his competitive instincts took over. “I wanted to break nine hours,” he said. “I had to pick it up and suffer the last three miles.” The timer was approaching 8:56 with a lap to go. In Pied Piper fashion, Odell pulled along a pack of fellow runners who had kept him company off and on during the day. A sizeable crowd gathered for the finish. “Ding, ding, ding!” they shouted in lieu of a bell. Two minutes later, Odell came to a gratifying standstill and listened participated in the Transrockies Run, a six-day, 120-mile to a chorus of “Happy Birthday.” He thanked them and said, mountain trail race. “We ran in the mixed-pairs division,” “I’m going to sit down and take my Dave said. “We had a blast.” shoes off.” Last summer and fall, they did two 100-mile runs: the Rio “He was a little sick this week,” del Lago near Folsom and the Cascade Crest in Washington. said Dave’s wife, DeAnna Odell. “He “He loves his wife, and she loves to run,” said Bill Odell, came through.

His small intestines were reconfigured to take on the functions of the absent colon. While Odell is a walking, running testament to modern medicine, he is also a worthy representative of mankind’s ancestors going back thousands of years. “They would roam miles and miles to hunt and gather food,” he said. “It’s how we used to eat.” Nearby fans snacked on pizza slices in the gym. The stands were almost full, although Westmont was still on winter break. It was a great night for the Warrior basketball teams. They both defeated the visiting Biola Eagles, their longtime rivals. Westmont’s women prevailed in a tense affair, 54-51, while the men made almost 70 percent of their shots in the second half of a comefrom-behind 93-81 victory. “I have a good feeling about our teams,” said Odell, noting that they finished strong, just as he did. WISH LIST: Here’s hoping that the Santa Barbara Foresters work out

a deal to play ball at Pershing Park or Westmont so they can continue their run this summer as the most winning team in the National Baseball Congress. The club’s arrangement to play at UCSB ended last year. The 2006 team, the first of Santa Barbara’s six NBC World Series champions, will be inducted at the Foresters Hall of Fame Banquet on Saturday, February 4. Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia will be the keynote speaker. For tickets to the banquet and entry into a benefit golf tournament the previous day, visit sbforesters .org … The Dos Pueblos Little League (dpll.net) is engaged in fundraising to build three batting cages at Girsh Park and supporting scholarships for youth baseball players in Goleta. … UCSB continues to seek generous donors to upgrade the school’s baseball facility for a fraction of the cost of a high school football stadium in Texas. … Good luck to a pair of former UCSB soccer stars. Chris Pontius has been added to the U.S. national team by new coach Bruce Arena for upcoming exhibitions against Serbia and Jamaica.

Tenure: A labor of love is how owner Kristi Bean describes the Santa Barbara–based catering company, Beans BBQ, which grew out of her Sunday-afternoon family barbecues to a professional venture in 2014. Wanting to pass on what brought her family together every weekend, Bean brought barbecue traditions from their hometown of Bakersfield to Santa Barbara, where they found it to be lacking. “It was really a no-brainer,” Bean relayed.“We do it really well, we work really cohesively together, and we’ve been doing this a long time, now as family and as business associates.” Dishes she digs: Bean’s per-

sonal favorite, as well as the catering company’s most popular option, is the tri-tip/chicken combination. The slow-grilled, marinated beef is paired with the Beans’ bean chili, which is prepared with shredded cheddar, diced onions, and sour cream. “When you couple that with a garden salad with our fresh dill ranch and those garlic croutons that people just can’t seem to get enough of, it makes for a really nice entrée and side,” Bean explained.

Room for dessert? As for dessert, Beans BBQ prides

itself on its signature deep-dish buttermilk pie. “It is a Southern, creamy, cold pie that comes in a buttermilk crust and is served with a fresh fruit compote and a bourbon-vanilla, fresh whipped cream,” Bean passionately described. Motivation: More than just food or a service, barbecue is an experience. “It is going to your family’s house on a Saturday afternoon; the sun is shining, the barbecue smoke is wafting in the air, you can smell the meat cooking on the grill, and everyone’s happy,” Bean said. “The beachy, salty smell is in the air, you see people that you haven’t seen in a long time, and the camaraderie becomes intoxicating.” For Bean, barbecue is an irreplaceable component of functions, for it serves as a reminder to pay attention to what is true and authentic. “It’s like going home,” says Bean. —Anjalie Tandon

i

f you want something unusual, exotic, sweet, and

lovely, this liqueur is worth your attention. Its history goes back to the Mayans, and then the Spaniards whipped a bit of anisette into the mix, a rare time that imperialists actually added something of value. That flavor base gets mixed with rum, and the result is Xtabentún (pronounced shtab-enTOON, or just point at the elaborately decorated TOON yellow label). Sure, it’s a bit sweet with its honey core, but that makes it even better in cocktails as a sort of simple syrup. Add tequila and lime, and you’ve got a more exotic margarita than you’ve ever dreamed of. It’s also traditionally mixed into coffee, too. When in doubt, sip some on a porch in the season’s last warm afternoons. — George Yatchisin See casadearisti.com.

Dining Out Guide

n Tuesday, January 24, participating McDonald’s restaurants in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties will celebrate the creation of the iconic breakfast item, the Egg McMuffin, with a $2 offer available all day. The Egg McMuffin was invented more than 40 years ago by the late Central Coast franchisee owner Herb Peterson. “My dad made the first Egg McMuffin sandwiches with freshly cracked eggs in the early 1970s, and that’s the exact same way we make every order today, all day long,” said Herb’s son David Peterson, area owner-operator and president of the Central Coast Owners Association. “The Egg McMuffin revolutionized the breakfast industry, and we are proud to honor and celebrate this tasty innovation that is enjoyed around the world and started right here in our own backyard. As a kid, I remember watching my dad inventing it in the kitchen and coming home from the blacksmith’s with the first ‘egg ring’ that makes the fresh cracked eggs cook perfectly round for the sandwich. He was, just as we are today, proud to serve it each morning to customers, but today, we are cracking eggs throughout the day as the Egg McMuffin is available on the All Day Breakfast menu.” In 1968, Herb Peterson, at the age of 53, embarked on a new career, opening his first McDonald’s restaurant in Santa Barbara. At the time, no other quick service restaurant offered breakfast. He saw that customers wanted a breakfast option they could eat on the go, and he was determined to provide it. Modeled after Peterson’s personal breakfast favorite, Eggs Benedict, he asked an area blacksmith to make an iron “egg ring” to keep eggs round and tidy as they were cooked for a hand-held sandwich. Convinced his creation would be a game-changer, he presented his breakfast product idea to McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc to rave reviews in 1971. The following year, the Egg McMuffin became the first McDonald’s breakfast item.

Comedy you Can’t Resist

page 55

of laughter. Expect to hear these and more when The Resistance, the über-exciting improv troupe from L.A., comes to Elings Performing Arts Center at Dos Pueblos High School on Saturday, January 14. Before your very eyes, the group will create an entirely original action/adventure/comedy based on your suggestions, complete with the cinematic magic of live music and lighting. With proceeds going to help DP’s theater program, it’s far better than going to the movies. I spoke with The Resistance member Kurt Maloney about making movies come to life on the spot. What is the rehearsal process like? Our rehearsal process is probably not what you think. Since it’s improv, we can’t rehearse because we make it up on the spot. Instead, we read a lot of books on screenwriting to sharpen our knowledge of the hero’s journey and what makes a story worth watching. We also train physically because of the amount of improvised stunts we perform. 

the Old West will feel very different from one set in space. Think about the movies Die Hard and Taken. In both movies, someone close to the hero has been taken hostage, but the way the movie plays out is very different. … They both have the same motive, but they meet different people and encounter different obstacles. We try to take that into account when improvising a new movie every week. 

getting too “talky,” we use games and bits to push our narrative. I think our biggest challenge is remembering the names of all the characters we play. Sounds dumb, but I bet you couldn’t name more than 10 characters in The Lord of the Rings. Now imagine improvising a fantasy movie where you have to know everyone’s name. It’s hard. And nobody wants to see a scene where a character asks everyone’s name repeatedly. “What’s your name again?” “It’s Frodo. I’m here to save all of Middle Earth.” “That’s right. Thanks, Froyo.” “It’s Frodo!” Courtesy Photos

ham! Bam! Pow! — and lots

ACTION-PACKED: From police dramas to sci-fi, The Resistance loves to spoof action genres. “We once did a Western where the whole town died and the bad guys won,” says Kurt Maloney. “It might not sound hilarious, but, trust me, it was.”

How do you store up knowledge of movie formulas/tropes/themes, and how does the storytelling play out? We are also fascinated by the action/adventure genre, and I think that’s what keeps us so knowledgeable on the topic. We are constantly researching new movies and plot devices and then sharing them with the rest of the group. … The way we keep our show from getting repetitive is we do a new genre each week and let that color the story. A revenge story set in

How does performing this style of longform compare with other styles? What are the unique challenges of making a movie on the spot? Most improv theaters, especially in L.A., want the troupes to stay away from a narrative. Often coaches will give notes saying, “You got too plotty. Stick to the game (the bit of the scene).” Our show relies heavily on a strong narrative. After all, we’re doing a movie. But to keep it from

Have you all ever considered rendering one of these into a real feature? What might be gained or lost in translating the improvised into the fully developed? What makes an improvised movie so enjoyable versus a scripted one? We have. We film a lot of our shows, and the very best ones get transcribed into a first draft. What usually stays in our scripts is the story structure. Sometimes the jokes change; sometimes we’ll add scenes. But the story is usually untouched.

If you could live inside any movie, which would it be and why? Star Wars, because then I’d have the Force and I’d get to chill —Richie DeMaria with Yoda.

Saturday Night Fever

updated the classic disco moves while keeping the excitement of the original film intact. “It’s a fresh take that reflects on where we are now,” said Alfano, adding that “you can see the evolution of dance” through the different numbers. Although he is far too young to remember seeing the original film when it came out, the actor has enjoyed researching his leading role, saying, “I’m from an Italian family, so I had a good start on the accent, but what got me really excited was learning about the 1970s New York vibe, which was raw and wild. There’s a documentary about New York in 1977 called The Coolest Year in Hell Hell, and I really liked that.” A dance contest in Act II features lots of partnering and lifts for the ensemble, and at the end of each performance, a mega-mix comes on that breaks down the fourth wall and pulls the audience into the action. For tickets and information, see granadasb .org or call 899-2222. — Charles Donelan Carol rosegg

What started back in 1976 as a New York Magazine article by rock writer Nik Cohn titled “Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night” has proved to be one of the most enduring and influential stories ever told about the power of music and the importance of the dance floor. Playing Saturday Night Fever ’s working-class hero Tony Manero in the 1977 film made John Travolta a star, and playing the classic Bee Gees hits from the soundtrack — songs such as “Staying Alive,”“Night Fever,” and “Jive Talkin’” — can still make people at a party get up and get down. On Tuesday and Wednesday, January 17 and 18, the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.) will feel the Saturday Night Fever Fever, Broadway musical style, when Theater League’s nationally touring production arrives for two nights of performances, both of which will end in an audiencefriendly disco dance party.

AnimA And Animus “It’s important to me that our community knows that Santa Barbara Dance Theater is continuing to commission, create, and perform great works of dance art,” said the company’s artistic director Christopher Pilafian. With its upcoming performance, Anima and Animus, the only professional dance troupe in the UC system certainly speaks to that mission, with gender as the thematic thread that runs through all of the pieces. “We’re talking about external appearance and the internal relationship to gender, what Carl Jung referred to as the anima and animus,” said Pilafian. “Gender is traditionally viewed as a binary construct but is becoming less so in our contemporary culture. Romantic love, the maturation of the individual, the recognition of the self as reflected in the world, the recognition of the self in the Other — all these elements are connected to gender.” The program is composed of pieces by guest choreographer Rebecca Lemme, Pilafian, UCSB Theater and Dance Assistant Professor Brandon Whited, and Martha Graham–trained dancer/choreographer Jane Dudley, as restaged by UCSB Theater and Dance lecturer Nancy Colahan. Of her piece, “Witnesse,” Lemme said it is “inspired by ancient symbols of female power; the work rejects the notion that vulnerability and power are mutually exclusive.” Whited explained his “Petit Pas” as “a contemporary exploration of the duet form [that reframes] the balance of power and agency, [and revisits] the gender-centric roots of the [duet].” Colahan’s take on Dudley’s “Cante Flamenco” explores the gender conflict through the Spanish dance form, and Pilafian’s “Mystique” is a nod to his mentors, most of whom have been “tremendously accomplished, vivid female artists,” he said. —Michelle Drown

My e b

Truth-Bending and Suspicions Run Amok in Sundance Channel Series

alentine

P

art of the oddly magnetic — if melancholic and sometimes sinister — allure of the unusual and binge-worthy TV series Rectify (now in its fourth, final season) relates to a key narrative hole in its middle. That hole, spinning off into metaphorical mystery zones, is the nearly 20 missing years in the life of young Daniel Holden, wrongly (we assume) convicted of raping and murdering his high-school-age girlfriend, Hanna, and released from death row after belated DNA evidence draws his guilt into question. Fast-forward to life “outside,” and the sweetly aloof Daniel is a free man — at least in the non-incarcerated sense. He is death-defying but is greeted by skeptics and connivers in his Georgian hometown, along with repair work needed in the family-relations department. But the real barrier to a true sense of “freedom” is interiorized: He’s haunted by demons, but his soft-edged, detached manner of speech and actions keep details of what’s going on inside obscured. Beguilingly played by Canadian actor Aden Young, Daniel is one of contemporary television’s dreamier characters, making his periodic dream scenes—with echoes of “life” on death row, bonding with his doomed friend, and memories of being raped — all the more integral to the series’ unsettled atmospherics. Created by Ray McKinnon, Rectify is a splintered and multi-limbed family saga, a Southern Gothic– flavored web of small-town hearsay and truth bending, suspicions running amok, and the nature of reality thrown up in the air. It’s not the typical domain of TV, although we recognize the tools and tricks of the serialization trade, the stretching out of segments and detours into subplots and sideline characters. Although we find some natural parallels between Rectify and Making a Murderer — the documentary about the wrongly accused and released Steven Avery, later convicted for another crime — the distinction of real life versus a writer’s elaborate, serial scheme changes everything. These imagined characters shapeshift episode by episode. In a particularly hypnotic episode in the middle of Season 2 of Rectify called “Donald the Normal,” Daniel finds himself in Atlanta, almost accidentally trying to reinvent himself after meeting a cultured woman in an art museum. But he

doesn’t have the necessary skills, wits, facts, or backstory to come close to pulling it off. There are huge holes in his story—and one in particular. By the final season, he has been banished from the hometown and is more pragmatically reinventing himself from the ground up through a post-prison transition house in Nashville and working as a warehouseman with a fleeting love interest with an artist (Caitlin FitzGerald), realizing his presumed misfit status for a “normal” life. The last season’s most cathartic moment comes early, as he speaks with his transition house leader and briefly breaks through his shell of cryptic composure and channels his dark passage in years of isolation: “You go deeper into yourself. It’s a perverse contradiction. I don’t know what is real. I don’t know what I did or didn’t do. That’s my truth.” Toward the end of the season, the episode title “Happy Unburdening” refers both to his self-delving work in therapy and the purging of possessions in his mother’s attic (via eBay) as various family members take on new life twists, and he wends toward presumed exoneration. One production downside is an intrusive musical score, which bullies us into feeling one stock emotion or another, contrasting the script’s more ambiguous emotive turf. The musical cues could be cut by half and made twice as effective. Ambiguity and the nagging mystery of the holes in the mega-story is what keeps us tuned in, wanting more. Even the “happy ending” moments lightening the narrative load are fraught with dark prospects and unanswered questions. Rectify goes places we don’t expect TV to go, with a pithily mumbling dreamer as hero/mystery man. — Josef Woodard

O 20th Century Women (118 mins., R)

O Manchester by the Sea

Dorothea (Annette Bening) is a nononsense single mother intent on seeing the world through her teenage son’s eyes as he tries to solve the mystery of his village full of feisty females, including an artsy boarder (Greta Gerwig), true-blue pal (Elle Fanning), and her — his mom — the most puzzling of all. The kid is California dreaming, skateboarding down canyon roads, and soaking up free-spirited Santa Barbara, which, according to our hometown boy (writer/director Mike Mills), thrived in the ’70s thanks to the spiky intelligence of intriguing women played so wonderfully by this dream cast. (JK)

This poignant film captures raw human emotion in the wake of tragedy. Not only do Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams shine, but breakout actor Lucas Hedges perfectly portrays how difficult is it to deal with the death of a parent during adolescence. Anyone who has experienced the loss of a family member can find solace in the film’s themes of grief, forgiveness, and learning to let go. (SM) Plaza de Oro

Paseo Nuevo

Hidden Figures (127 mins., PG-13) Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe star in the film based on the true story of the women who helped NASA launch its first space mission.

O La La Land

(128 mins., PG-13)

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a film that had me sitting upright the whole time, amazed at the magic that Hollywood creates, but La La Land did just that. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling play young artists trying to make it in the entertainment industry; their chemistry is akin to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, including a delightfully enchanting tap dancing scene. Through song, dance, humor, romance, and heartache, the lovers inspire each other to work for their dreams. Yet the film also reminds the audience that fantasy can be just that — things we desire but may never have. (SM)

Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Lion (118 mins., PG-13) Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) stars as a man who was adopted from Calcutta when

(137 mins., R)

Moana (113mins., PG) Disney’s latest animated feature tells the story of a young girl named Moana, daughter of a chieftain, who sets sail to find the demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) to help her unite her people. During their adventure, she meets a giant crab, a lava witch, and various other characters. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 A Monster Calls (108 mins., PG-13) Based on the fantasy novel of the same name, this story follows young boy Conor, who struggles to talk about his mother’s terminal cancer when he is visited by a tree monster who warns him he will tell the boy three stories. Then, Conor must tell his own story. Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver, and Lewis MacDougall star. Metro 4 Passengers (116 mins., PG-13) Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt star in this sci-fi romantic thriller about two passengers on the starship Avalon, which is on course for a 120-year journey to a new planet to colonize. Things go awry when Aurora Lane (Lawrence) and Jim Preston (Pratt) wake up from their hibernation pods just 30 years into the trip. Camino Real/Metro 4

O Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

immersive worlds where sassy androids best storm troopers who still can’t shoot worth a damn. Fun homages abound without being overplayed. But Rogue One tries too hard to cement a new cast of gritty yet lovable rebel warriors, throwing out action and one-liners when a couple more moments of meaningful dialogue would have hit much harder. Still, it’s a ride worth taking. (TH) Arlington/Camino Real

O Silence (161mins., R) What is the difference between a spiritual truth and a cultural imposition, between divine will and individual will, between meaningful and meaningless suffering? These are some of the deep questions posed in Martin Scorsese’s weighty Silence, a cinematic inquisition centered on two Jesuit missionaries, played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver, who travel to Japan to earn converts and find their mentor. Richly shot and patiently paced, it’s as slow and stern as a serious sermon but gripping in its telling, rewarding both in the realism of its depiction and the depth of its discourse. It’s a worthy watch for believers, thinkers, and feelers all. (RD)

Underworld: Blood Wars (91 mins., R) Kate Beckinsale reprises her role as vampire Selene in this fifth installment of the film franchise. Camino Real/Metro 4

(134 mins., PG-13)

In terms of the Star Wars timeline, Rogue One falls between the space opera’s disappointing prequels and its game-changing originals — so after the Empire really hits its dark-side stride but before the Alliance blows the Death Star to bits. In terms of appeal, the spin-off, directed by Gareth Edwards, hits right in the middle, too. Interstellar dogfights sizzle above deliciously

Why Him? (111 mins., R) James Franco and Bryan Cranston go head-to-head in this comedy about a father (Cranston) who wildly disapproves of his daughter’s new, socially incompetent billionaire boyfriend, Laird (Franco). Megan Mullally and Zoey Deutch costar. Fiesta 5

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of januaRy 12 ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is a huge holy tree that links all of the nine worlds to each other. Perched on its uppermost branch is an eagle with a hawk sitting on its head. Far below, living near the roots, is a dragon. The hawk and eagle stay in touch with the dragon via Ratatoskr, a talkative squirrel that runs back and forth between the heights and the depths. Alas, Ratatoskr traffics solely in insults. That’s the only kind of message the birds and the dragon ever have for each other. In accordance with the astrological omens, Aries, I suggest you act like a far more benevolent version of Ratatoskr in the coming weeks. Be a feisty communicator who roams far and wide to spread uplifting gossip and energizing news.

(June 21-July 22): “I never wish to be easily defined,” wrote Cancerian author Franz Kafka. “I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something fluid and nonperceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.” Do you ever have that experience? I do. I’m a Crab like you, and I think it’s common among members of our tribe. For me, it feels liberating. It’s a way to escape people’s expectations of me and enjoy the independence of living in my fantasies. But I plan to do it a lot less in 2017, and I advise you to do the same. We should work hard at coming all the way down to earth. We will thrive by floating less and being better grounded; by being less fuzzy and more solid; by not being so inscrutable, but rather more knowable.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): You have a divine mandate to love bigger and stronger and truer than ever before. It’s high time to freely give the gifts you sometimes hold back from those you care for. It’s high time to take full ownership of neglected treasures so you can share them with your worthy allies. It’s high time to madly cultivate the generosity of spirit that will enable you to more easily receive the blessings that can and should be yours. Be a brave, softhearted warrior of love!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I love and respect Tinker Bell, Kermit the Frog, Shrek, Wonder Woman, SpongeBob SquarePants, Snow White, Road Runner, and Calvin and Hobbes. They have provided me with much knowledge and inspiration. Given the current astrological omens, I suspect that you, too, can benefit from cultivating your relationships with characters like them. It’s also a favorable time for you to commune with the spirits of Harriet Tubman, Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, or any other historical figures who inspire you. I suggest you have dreamlike conversations with your most interesting ancestors, as well. Are you still in touch with your imaginary friends from childhood? If not, renew acquaintances.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Here’s my declaration: “I hereby forgive, completely and permanently, all motorists who have ever irked me with their rude and bad driving. I also forgive, totally and forever, all tech support people who have insulted me, stonewalled me, or given me wrong information as I sought help from them on the phone. I furthermore forgive, utterly and finally, all family members and dear friends who have hurt my feelings.” Now would be a fantastic time for you to do what I just did, Leo: Drop grudges, let go of unimportant outrage, and issue a blanket amnesty. Start with the easier stuff — the complaints against strangers and acquaintances — and work your way up to the allies you cherish.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) : There are some authors who both annoy me and intrigue me. Even though I feel allergic to the uncomfortable ideas they espouse, I’m also fascinated by their unique provocations. As I read their words, I’m half-irritated at their grating declarations, and yet greedy for more. I disagree with much of what they say, but feel grudgingly grateful for the novel perspectives they prod me to discover. (Nobel Prize winner Elias Canetti is one such author.) In accordance with the current astrological rhythms,

Virgo, I invite you to seek out similar influences — for your own good!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Now would be an excellent time to add new beauty to your home. Are there works of art or buoyant plants or curious symbols that would lift your mood? Would you consider hiring a feng shui consultant to rearrange the furniture and accessories so as to enhance the energetic flow? Can you entice visits from compelling souls whose wisdom and wit would light up the place? Tweak your imagination so it reveals tricks about how to boost your levels of domestic bliss.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 2017, you will have unprecedented opportunities to reimagine, revise, and reinvent the story of your life. You’ll be able to forge new understandings about your co-stars and reinterpret the meanings of crucial plot twists that happened once upon a time. Now check out these insights from author Mark Doty: “The past is not static, or ever truly complete; as we age we see from new positions, shifting angles. A therapist friend of mine likes to use the metaphor of the kind of spiral stair that winds up inside a lighthouse. As one moves up that stair, the core at the center doesn’t change, but one continually sees it from another vantage point; if the past is a core of who we are, then our movement in time always brings us into a new relation to that core.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The Tao Te Ching is a poetically philosophical text written by a Chinese sage more than two millennia ago. Numerous authors have translated it into modern languages. I’ve borrowed from their work to craft a horoscope that is precisely suitable for you in the coming weeks. Here’s your high-class fortune cookie oracle: Smooth your edges, untangle your knots, sweeten your openings, balance your extremes, relax your mysteries, soften your glare, forgive your doubts, love your breathing, harmonize your longings, and marvel at the sunny dust.

Go to RealAstrology.com to check out Rob Brezsny’s EXPANDED WEEKLY AUDIO HOROSCOPES and DAILY TEXT MESSAGE HOROSCOPES. The audio horoscopes are also available by phone at 1-877-873-4888 or 1-900-950-7700.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I recently discovered Tree of Jesse, a painting by renowned 20th-century artist Marc Chagall. I wanted to get a copy to hang on my wall. But as I scoured the Internet, I couldn’t find a single business that sells prints of it. Thankfully, I did locate an artist in Vietnam who said he could paint an exact replica. I ordered it, and was pleased with my new objet d’art. It was virtually identical to Chagall’s original. I suggest you meditate on taking a metaphorically similar approach, Capricorn. Now is a time when substitutes may work as well as what they replace.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It is often safer to be in chains than to be free,” wrote Franz Kafka. That fact is worthy of your consideration in the coming weeks, Aquarius. You can avoid all risks by remaining trapped inside the comfort that is protecting you. Or you can take a gamble on escaping, and hope that the new opportunities you attract will compensate you for the sacrifice it entails. I’m not here to tell you what to do. I simply want you to know what the stakes are.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “All pleasures are in the last analysis imaginary, and whoever has the best imagination enjoys the most pleasure.” So said 19th-century German novelist Theodor Fontane, and now I’m passing his observation on to you. Why? Because by my astrological estimates, you Pisceans will have exceptional imaginations in 2017 — more fertile, fervent, and freedom-loving than ever before. Therefore, your capacity to drum up pleasure will also be at an all-time high. There is a catch, however. Your imagination, like everyone else’s, is sometimes prone to churning out superstitious fears. To take maximum advantage of its bliss-inducing potential, you will have to be firm about steering it in positive directions. Homework: Tell a story about the time Spirit reached down and altered your course in one swoop. Go to RealAstrology.com and click on “Email Rob.”
