As we learn to fight a president who lies and is turning back the clock on progress, the Sister Marches raised more than four million strong voices in opposition. The Indy buses added 178 of them from S.B. to the Women’s March in L.A. Fortified by pastries from Jeannine’s and coffee perked by Tanya Spears Giuiliacci, Brandi Rivera, and Joe Cole — who rose early to see us off— off all were aboard by 5:30 a.m. Saturday. Every one of them was back 13 hours later from the blocked-off streets of downtown L.A., thanks to the intensive efforts of Emily Cosentino, Alex Melton, Marianne Kuga, and Caitlin Fitch.

NEWS of the WEEK r ic h i e d e m ar ia

COMMUNITY

news Briefs CITY

A comprehensive face-lift of Santa Barbara High School’s Peabody Stadium received an additional $9.2 million earlier this month, mainly to cover unanticipated costs associated with the site’s collection and drainage of neighborhood storm water; $4.2 million comes from 2010’s Measure Q facilities bond, while the balance is being pulled from Measure I funding, approved by voters last fall. Construction is expected to start this spring and take 18 months to complete. The total price tag is estimated at $26.7 million.

COUNTY PEOPLE POWER: Saturday’s protest was the biggest Santa Barbara had seen in decades. Even so, demonstrators and police both reported a friendly and upbeat atmosphere.

Marching with Millions Women’s March Fills Santa Barbara and Cities Across the World

M

ore than 6,000 protesters

gathered, thronged, and rallied in De la Guerra Plaza last Saturday — far more than anyone can remember happening before and way beyond what police and organizers alike expected — in response to the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as 45th president of the United States. Like the bigger marches taking place in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and throughout the nation and the world, Santa Barbara’s rally was a women’s march, though many men participated and many issues other than women’s rights were championed. The prospect of a Trump White House has horrified and galvanized Santa Barbara’s liberal and Democratic residents, but the spirit at Saturday’s rally was defiantly upbeat rather than angry. Many participating spent considerable time crafting placards to carry. “Make America Sane Again” read one. “God is watching, and She is pissed” read another. Many riffed on Trump’s infamous boast about getting away with “grabbing women by their pussy,” and others expanded on this theme, carrying signs reading “Viva la Vulva” and “My Pussy, My Choice.” One male protester referenced his own genitalia, with a sign reading “No Dick-tatorship.” After listening to speeches by Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, Councilmember Cathy Murillo, Assemblymember Monique Limón, and Planned Parenthood executive Jenna Tosh, the crowd marched down State Street toward the beach. As with event organizers, Santa Barbara police had little idea how many protesters to expect. Organizer Michal Lynch, a bookkeeper and folk dance instructor, said she initially envisioned a small

group of about 50 marching to make a quiet but determined statement of solidarity with the larger march taking place in Los Angeles. Longtime activists attending the rally — who remember participating in the protests of the 1970s — said they could not recall a more populous display of political disapproval. Protest organizers took pains to stress harmonious relations with city police—“If you can, thank an officer for looking out for

voting. Limón, recently elected to the State Assembly, pledged to work with fellow legislators to make California “the light of the nation” when it came to resisting the Trump policy agenda, particularly as it related to maintaining protections built into the DREAM Act. Trump has advocated the elimination of future federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Should he succeed, warned Tosh, executive director for the Central Coast’s Planned Parenthood network, it would seriously affect the 35,000 people a year for whom Planned Parenthood provides an array of services ranging from sex education and birth control, to cancer screenings and abortion. The people most affected, she said, are the ones who can least afford to get such health care elsewhere. President Trump, Tosh said, needs to stop listening to Jeff Sessions, his aggressively anti-choice nominee for Attorney General, and Georgia Representative Tom Price, who believes life begins at conception and is Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Young America’s Foundation (YAF), a conservative nonprofit that has owned the Reagan Ranch since 1998, has sued Santa Barbara County over a proposed public hiking trail that would cross onto ranch property. As part of the West Camino Cielo Crest Trail, the proposed section would help connect Refugio Pass to Gaviota Peak. YAF is concerned that the trail, sited to run along the ranch’s private driveway, would attract unwanted sightseeing and perhaps vandalism of the 688acre property, a vacation home for the late president. Santa Barbara tourism is looking bright, said speakers at the 2017 Travel Outlook conference. Forty percent of U.S. leisure travelers stated they were interested in visiting S.B., and of those, 43 percent were millennials, versus 29 percent Gen Xers and 24 percent boomers. One in three visitors to S.B. stays overnight, said Visit Santa Barbara CEO Kathy Janega-Dykes, while day-trippers represent the vast majority at 67.6 percent of visitors. The cruise-ship industry, meanwhile, has grown dramatically. In 2016, 29 cruise ships brought 80,831 passengers to S.B., contributing $3.9 million to the area economy, up 61 percent from 2013.

ENVIRONMENT The City of Santa Barbara agreed to extend its five-year legal settlement agreement with Santa Barbara Channelkeeper over sewage spills for another three years. Channelkeeper’s Kira Redmond said the number of spills had dropped considerably since the lawsuit was filed in 2011, but that there are still more happening than the settlement allowed for. In the extension, Redmond said the maximum number of spills allowed has been ratcheted down to eight a year for the next three years. In addition, the agreement calls for a more systematic evaluation of the city’s sewer pipes. As expected, Phillips 66 filed an appeal last October to the San Luis Obispo Planning Commission’s denial of its proposed oil train rail spur. The oil company also filed a lawsuit on similar grounds, that Coastal Zone law had been misapplied. Now, Santa Barbara’s Environmental Defense Center has joined with Sierra Club, Communities for a Better Environment, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Surfrider Foundation, and Stand. earth to intervene in that suit. San Luis Obispo’s supervisors have set a date of 3/13 for the appeal n hearing.

THE SWEET SOUND OF SPILLAGE: The Gibraltar Reservoir, now full, is pouring water downstream to Lake Cachuma for the first time since 2011.

thar she Flows!

W

ith a mock solemn voice and a big

grin, city water czar Joshua Haggmark notified the Santa Barbara City Council on Tuesday that “As of 1 a.m., Gibraltar is starting to spill,” adding, “That concludes my presentation.” Of course, Haggmark had about 45 minutes’ worth of other water news to relay, but none of it compared in import to the overflow now taking place at the Gibraltar Reservoir — meaning runoff water is pouring downstream and into Lake Cachuma in significant quantities for the first time since 2011. But as usual with this year’s rains, the news looks rosier than it immediately is. First, this week’s storm proved substantially less bountiful than predicted. Second, none of the water flowing into Cachuma can be used by the member water agencies drawing from the dam until there’s a live stream flowing down the main stem of the Santa Ynez River to the ocean. Even then — according to Byzantine water-accounting rules — another 4,000 acre-feet worth of water will have to be set aside for downstream users, and

another 2,000 acre-feet set aside to replenish accounts created for steelhead restoration efforts before South Coast water agencies can start availing themselves to the accumulated runoff. Since this year’s rains, about 5,000 acrefeet have accumulated in Lake Cachuma. “Lake Cachuma was a lot better off last year at this time than it is now,” said Haggmark. “We still have a long way to go.” Haggmark said the drought won’t be officially over until Cachuma, now 11 percent full, spills again. If it fills halfway, he said, the city might consider rolling back the lawn-watering ban and other drought-inspired restrictions. Haggmark, meanwhile, said there’s no rain forecast for the next 10 days. “Anything beyond that is strictly voodoo.” After the rainy season runs its course — usually sometime in March — area agencies will have a better idea how to proceed. Even though Santa Barbara County has received far more than average rainfall this year, federal forecasters continue to predict less than average —Nick Welsh precipitation.

ast week, Santa Barbara real estate investor Ray Mahboob bought the former El Torito restaurant for $7.2 million. The deal is the second major Funk Zone acquisition for Mahboob — who has extensive commercial and residential holdings throughout the South Coast — in the past six months. This gives Mahboob an acre of Funk Zone real estate with 200 feet of waterfront space and 55 parking spaces just as the area is poised to go stratospheric in terms of real estate values. The nearby Hotel Californian luxury hotel project, 20 tortuous years in the making, is about seven months from opening, and the Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation (MOXI) — TV mogul Dick Wolf’s science museum for kids—is about to flip the switch. In addition, Tony Romasanta is beginning construction on another hotel on the site of the former Be Bop Burgers. Mahboob is typically a low-profile player, but in recent months, he’s been anything but. Six months ago, he paid more than $5 million in cash to buy the 16 Helena Avenue prop-

erty that’s been home to the Santa Barbara Surf Museum the past 33 years. He did so even though the property was the target of a lawsuit filed by the Taylor family, owners of 29 Cabrillo Boulevard— the site of El Torito, which closed suddenly last year — contending they had parking rights on the Helena Avenue property. Typically, such lawsuits cast dark shadows that discourage investor interest. Mahboob proceeded anyway and quickly offered to buy out the six out-oftown owners while simultaneously turning up the legal heat. He’d scheduled depositions for all six, he said, shortly before they agreed to sell. Mahboob said he’s currently in the process of starting a Funk Zone Owners Association to navigate future development for the popular destination with City Hall in terms of traffic and parking requirements. So sure was he that the deal would pan out that he signed leases with two restaurants —both local he said, one Mexican and the other Japanese — before the sale was consummated. —Nick Welsh

DROPPING THE MIC: City traffic planner Rob Dayton (far right) didn’t pull any punches in describing problems in the Caltrans assessment.

Kicking the tires hard Caltrans Slammed for Minimizing Negative Impacts of Freeway Widening

S

by Nick Welsh

ome councilmembers daintily called it “robust,” but the letter Santa Barbara traffic planners sent to their counterparts with Caltrans was more like a roundhouse kick to the Adam’s apple. This Tuesday evening, the Santa Barbara City Council voted 6-0 to make that letter their “official opinion” about the latest environmental analysis of the increased congestion the proposed Highway 101 widening will inflict on city streets and intersections.

In a blistering, 23-page critique, Santa Barbara traffic planners —led by Rob Dayton —blasted the supplemental environmental report ordered last year by Judge Thomas Anderle, charging it understates the actual impact to the city. Dayton stated that Caltrans developed a brand-new “threshold of significance” to measure the impact, which, he complained, is 10 times less sensitive than the threshold customarily used by city traffic engineers. “The problems created by Caltrans’s approach are neither trivial nor academic,” Dayton wrote. The Milpas Street intersections, he said, will experience a 40-48 percent increase in peak-hour traffic as a result of the freeway widening. Northbound morning drivers seeking to get off at Olive Mill Road will find themselves “queuing down the northbound off ramp and blocking the number three travel lane [of the freeway,]” he wrote. “This will present serious safety risks to drivers.” Had Caltrans used the threshold of significance deployed by city planners, Dayton said congestion at no fewer than nine city intersections would have exceeded what’s deemed “significant” for purposes of environmental review. That’s three times the number identified by Caltrans. And, Dayton added, that number could be even higher when city traffic planners finish crunching the numbers. The word “significant” is highly charged when used in environmental documents. By law, developers must strive to reduce all impacts to levels below “significant.” Failing that, they must attempt to either mitigate them or find alternatives. Only after those efforts have been unsuccessfully exhausted are decision makers allowed to make “findings of overriding consideration.” Critics of the 101-widening proposal complained that no such analysis was attempted in the

first iteration of the environmental review, prompting attorney Mark Chytilo to file a lawsuit attacking the adequacy of the environmental analysis. Dayton also accused Caltrans of “proposing solutions that they have not shown to be effective.” He complained that Caltrans was not offering to foot its fair share of the bill for three major parallel projects designed to ameliorate some of these impacts. Those three projects combined are estimated to cost $45 million; the most expensive — a roundabout and bridge widening by the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge at Los Patos and Cabrillo Boulevard—is expected to cost $20 million. “Caltrans is proposing something over $460,000 in mitigation for work the city estimates will cost as much as $20 million,” Dayton said. Marjorie Kirn, the new executive director of S.B. County Association of Governments (SBCAG), argued the council should pursue the parallel projects but not slow the freeway widening down. Delays, she stated, cost $1.4 million a month. With SBCAG about $150 million shy of what the freeway widening will cost, President Donald Trump’s promise to spend a trillion bucks on infrastructure looks promising. Kirn said such funding will go to “shovel ready” projects and urged the council to help make the widening “shovel ready.” Caltrans’s Scott Eades testified that Caltrans had to create a new threshold of significance that could be applied not just in Santa Barbara but along the entire 101 corridor. He acknowledged that the threshold Caltrans developed had not been used before. Eades also admitted that many traffic statistics included in his environmental report were factually incorrect—as Dayton contended — and pledged to correct them. He called that “very unfortunate.” Councilmember Cathy Murillo asked Eades whether he’d ever been on the receiving end of so “robust” a letter from other cities and whether Santa Barbara had a reputation for being “difficult.” Eades — diplomatic and professional—demurred. “The City of Santa Barbara is always higher in terms of its level of expectations than other cities in the state,” he said. The deadline to comment on the revised environmental document is January 31. The final report will be released n this spring.

aking a hard look at the complexities of special education at Santa Barbara Unified School District, Superintendent Cary Matsuoka has been visiting classrooms and meeting with teachers and parents for the past several months. He’s also scrutinized the data, which concerns him, he told the district’s Board of Trustees during its last meeting before winter break. The numbers show that of the district’s 1,933 special-ed students, 45 percent are identified as English-language learners. “It should not be that high,” Matsuoka said. “When you talk to our teachers, they see their English learners [and] they know they’re smart, but we have to help them overcome the language barrier.” He said that many English learners — kids simply struggling with learning to speak, read, and write in a new language — have been mistakenly placed in special-ed classrooms. That could be a big reason, he explained, why 13 percent of the district’s student body is categorized as special-ed when the national average is 10 percent. “This has been an issue for some time,” said Board President Kate Parker, “and yet systemically we haven’t been able to change it.” Matsuoka introduced what he called a “three-tiered instructional framework” in

Carbajal: ‘I Will Be the Face of Resistance’ by Kelsey Brugger

ASHINGTON, D.C.—Just three hours after President

Donald J. Trump was sworn into office, Congressmember Salud Carbajal stood with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and fellow Hispanic Caucus members to reject Trump’s plan to deport undocumented immigrants and to build a wall along the country’s southern border.“Mr. Trump, am I a threat to our democracy?” asked Carbajal, who emigrated from Mexico at age 5, squarely facing the TV camera. It was Carbajal’s first big-league press conference. A mood of crisis filled the briefing room at the Cannon House Office Building, which was packed with journalists; undocumented students; Pelosi’s grandchildren; Carbajal’s wife, Gina Carbajal; and buzzing congressional staffers. A large photograph of the Berlin Wall’s destruction stood to the right of those who spoke. It was quite a departure from the modest media events Carbajal was used to as a county supervisor in Santa Barbara. Carbajal arrives in Washington at a time of grave divisiveness, and last weekend certainly embodied that reality. Virtually none of the couple hundred thousand Trump supporters wearing red baseball caps at Friday’s inauguration stayed in town long enough to see several hundred thousand more people rumble D.C.’s streets on Saturday for the Women’s March on Washington. This emerging friction could be tricky for Carbajal, who has been an effective compromiser in Santa Barbara. He said he struggled with whether he should boycott the inauguration with the more than 60 Democratic congressmembers who did. He ultimately decided to go to show “respect for our democracy and our peaceful transition of power.” “From day one,” he explained in an interview in his office after the inauguration, “I wanted him to see this face in the sea of members of Congress, to know that I am one of those immigrants he demagogued. I will be the face of resistance.” This tune is somewhat of a departure from Carbajal’s old congenial way. “He doesn’t give me the confidence from what he said that he is going to strive to unite our country and to find common ground,” he said of Trump’s first presidential speech. “Despite a few glimmers of being a little more positive, I think he doubled-down in his divisiveness. He was speaking to his core audience.” That core audience defeated the Democratic Party, proving wrong most mainstream pollsters. When asked about this, Carbajal said,“Quite frankly, I think the economic message from a Democratic standpoint didn’t come across to many folks. I think Democrats failed to remind folks of the story of where we were and where we are at now,” he said. And although “things have gotten better,” he said, “people still feel somewhat left out.” Carbajal appeared in general overwhelmed with both joy and apprehension. He must have shown me four times the exclusive pin that members of Congress wear — a virtual key to the U.S. Capitol. When he explained his hellish schedule — flying back to Santa Barbara every Thursday or Friday evening and returning Monday in time for the 6 p.m. vote — he professed it would not be too rough. Carbajal’s new office, though relatively small, is more than twice the size of his new bedroom. He rents a room in a house he shares with two other Democratic congressmembers from

California. It’s such tight quarters that two sides of his double bed sit flush against the teal green walls. Hanging in his compact closet are blue and white dress shirts and slacks. His socks and T-shirts would not fit if they weren’t so neatly folded. But the quintessential D.C. row house is tastefully decorated as if a nice family lived there, not three male politicians without their wives. Carbajal stressed he won’t spend much time there as he plans to return to his district every weekend, as his predecessor Lois Capps did. This weekend, though, Carbajal stayed in D.C. to participate in the Women’s March on Washington with his wife. On Sunday, he used his congressional status to open the U.S.

POLITICS

Capitol building for Helene Tozier, the mom of his childhood best friend who was in town with her friends. His signature jovial suaveness was alive. Carbajal had already befriended the officer known to give the very best behind-the-scenes tours of the Capitol; he called him by his nickname,“Dukey.” Our congressmember was just one of thousands of roaring protesters rebelling against the Trump administration. Celebrities such as Cher, Madonna, and Ashley Judd surrounded him. When he was introduced by Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards as the “Congressman from Santa Barbara,” a woman with bleached hair, a knit cap, and teal-rimmed glasses exclaimed, “Santa Barbara!? I’m from Santa Barbara!” It was Katy Perry. Most marchers did not get anywhere near the celebs as mobs of women (and men) wearing pink hats and T-shirts overflowed the march’s planned route on Independence Avenue. The slightly less crowded National Mall and side streets offered space to breath. Kindness and cleverness abounded. One woman gave her very last pussy hat to a stranger. Others laughed at raunchy posters, including “Tiny hands, huge asshole” and “Don’t forget to set your clocks back 400 years” and “There will be blood (with a picture of a tampon). Deal with it!” Despite the throngs of people, police reported no uncivil behavior in downtown Washington on Saturday (but the night before, more than 200 people were arrested for smashing windows there). Similarly, peaceful marches took place in more than 600 cities all over the world. The marches were a sharp contrast to the much less crowded Inauguration Day. Many Trump supporters said they believed Trump would shake up the political establishment. They dismissed questions about his words demeaning women and people of color. In general, they liked his candor; one devout Christian commented,“Nobody’s perfect.” But despite their collective excitement, gruffness was in the air. Trump supporters booed Senator Chuck Schumer’s speech so loudly it was impossible to hear him talking about overcoming struggle and embracing immigrants. They gushed at First Lady Melania Trump’s polished appearance; one woman leaned over to me and said, “She’s wearing Ralph Lauren, if you want to write that down.” They greeted Trump with great adulation, especially cheering when he promised to eradicate “radical Islam terrorists.” He caught a few people off guard, though, when he preached, “… most importantly, we are protected by God.” Just outside of the event’s gates, many stopped to chastise two women holding a bright pink sign that read “No Racism, No Hate.” They were with Code Pink, an organization founded to oppose the Iraq war. They kept a straight face, mostly refusing to engage with Trump supporters who yelled things like, “Who has he ever hated?” The confrontation epitomized this new discord — a separation of red baseball caps and pink hats. The bright red represented a new kind of Republican Party still unsure how it would embrace the Grand Old Party’s traditionalism. The bright pink has become the color that seeks to reclaim sexism and inspire strength; it is broader than the Democratic Party. We are no longer a nation separated by red and blue. It’s red n and pink — both warm colors, or rather, hot.

TOO CRAZY TO BE TRUE: I don’t need 100 days.

My head’s spinning already; I’ve got whiplash. We’ve been through worse before? Not that I can recall. When I started out, I harbored delusions I’d “tell the truth.” Somewhere along the way, I came to doubt I’d recognize the truth if it were to bite my ass. Later, I came to question whether any such thing as “The Truth” existed. That was my epiphany of atheism. Then Donald Trump saved me. Some people cite the devil to prove the reality of God. Trump doesn’t make the case for truth so much as prove the opposite. “Alternative facts?”

To put that phrase into proper context, there’s a former judge in town whom prosecutors disqualified from ever hearing any of thousands of criminal cases because on one occasion she had the temerity to allude to “a parallel universe” in her courtroom. Or maybe it was because she was a woman. Or maybe prosecutors just don’t like losing. It’s been a long time. Who can say for sure? But here is a fact. There’s more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than at any time in the previous 650,000 years. Here’s another. The body temperature for Planet Earth in 2016 was the hottest ever in the 100 years such records have been kept. And 2016 was the third straight hottest year ever. It’s also a fact that Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump’s appointee to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is a climate

It’s also a fact that the EPA will be issuing no press releases and entering into no new contracts and that EPA employees have been ordered not to communicate with the media or via social media for the time being. What these facts mean might not be knowable, but a spokesperson chillingly described it as “dimming some of the communication while we get it under control” (italics added to heighten creepy perfection of phrase). California has its own rules about air pollution that are stricter than the federal standards Pruitt controls. Those rely on a federal “waiver” California fought for and won. Still to be determined is whether Pruitt will respect that waiver. In confirmation hearings, he was exceedingly noncommittal on the matter. It’s also a fact that media blackout orders have been issued to the National Park Service. That’s the agency responsible for providing inaugural space to newly elected presidents. In spite of such orders, a “rogue” National Park Service tweet was emanated to remind people of the atmosphere’s high carbon content. It remains to be determined whether the tweeter in question was a former employee at the Badlands National Park in Montana. The National Park Service is typically not a hot-button agency. But for the past week, it’s been embroiled in the still explosive “size matters” debate over just how many people attended the Trump inauguration.

Trump is no doubt clinically paranoid. But he is absolutely correct; the media is out to get him. He’s got a right to gripe. Just not about crowd sizes. On that, no alternative facts exist. Not only did more people attend Barack Obama’s first inauguration, but far more people marched against Trump — in Saturday’s many Women’s Marches — than attended the inauguration. Trump and his supporters were absolutely swamped and submerged by a coast-to-coast tsunami of pink pussy hats. This gleeful celebration of the gynecological took Trump’s thoroughly documented pathological nastiness where women are concerned and used it — joyfully and effectively — against him. In so doing, the pussy hat wearers laid to waste two of the most enduring canards about feminists: that they have no sense of humor and that they’re always so primly politically correct. Size clearly matters; lies matter, too. This week while meeting with congressional leaders, Trump repeated his old accusation that he lost the popular vote—by 2.8 million votes — because three to five million unauthorized immigrants cast ballots. Trump never provided any evidence to substantiate this claim before. This week, his press secretary, Sean Spicer, cited two studies that he said support Trump’s claims. In point of fact (italics added to emphasize difference between fact and fancy) the studies to which Spicer alluded do not say what he said they said. The fact of the matter is Trump was “elected” president according to the existing rules. Whether that’s “fair and square” is open to interpretation. But Trump is hardly the

first president to win despite losing the popular vote. If we’re lucky, he won’t be the last. But for Trump to repeat such claims without substantiation is damaging. Even conservative Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina are concerned. “[I]f the President of the United States is claiming that 3.5 million people voted illegally, that shakes confidence in our democracy,” Graham declared. “He needs to disclose why he believes that.” One of Trump’s first actions upon taking office was to make home mortgages more expensive for the “little guy” by increasing insurance requirements so that high-stakes investors who speculate in the home-loan futures market are better insulated from risk. The other was to declare Inauguration Day the “The National Day

of Patriotic Devotion.” North Korea’s King Jong-un is currently eating his heart out. Last fact. Six reporters were arrested by police in Washington, D.C., and charged with

felonies for covering the riots that broke out immediately after the inauguration in which several officers were injured and more than 200 people were arrested. The arrested journalists — two of whom identified themselves as activist-reporters—have all insisted they were covering the riots, not participating in them. Authorities have provided no specifics, just a one-size-fits-all declaration — identical language for all six—that the defendants were seen in the vicinity of a crowd engaged in rioting. Now that scares me. And that’s the absolute truth.

As globalization connects our lives across borders, the issue of immigration and migration remains a defining topic of our time. But the many voices shaping the issue in political rhetoric often neglect the most important dimension: humans. As a result, the people whose lives are altered, displaced and even lost as a result of immigration are silenced. Hear from Westmont faculty and staff who attempted to uncover the human stories and faces of immigration during a fiveCynthia Toms, Moderator day immersion at the Tucson/Nogales crossing site. They’ll share personal encounters with people shaped by these issues and discuss how the journey transformed their own lives.

Where No Story Has Gone Before

How Trump’s ‘Alternative Facts’ Portend Chilling New Era of Propaganda

W

inston Smith, the rebellious protagonist of 1984, realizes in the iconic novel that his state’s repressive rule rests on citizens trained to deny the data of their own senses. “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command,” he broods. “The obvious, the silly, and the true had got to be defended.” That excerpt from George Orwell’s renowned book ricocheted around the Internet last weekend, responding to the extraordinary first days of Donald Trump’s presidency, a spectacle of lies, unhinged rants, and a full-throated declaration of war against the press. “I have a running war with the media,” Trump proclaimed during a bizarre diatribe during a stop at the CIA. “They are among the most dishonest human beings on Earth.” HOW THE DEAL WENT DOWN. Trashing the media, of course, is nothing new for the 46 percent 45th president, who did so throughout the campaign. Still, the spleen venting was astonishing for a new chief executive the day after taking office, a time historically known for more soothing tones. At first glance, the focus of Trump’s ire seemed a silly matter of small consequence to the Leader of the Free World — his unhappiness with reported crowd estimates at his swearing in. “But you know, we have something that’s amazing because, we had, it looked honestly, it looked like a million and a half people. Whatever it was. But it went all the way back to the Washington Monument,” he told CIA officers at an appearance earmarked for more substantial purpose. “And I turn on, with my steak … and I get this network shows an empty field. And it said we drew 250,000 people.” Aerial photographs confirmed, however, that his audience extended nowhere near the monument; it was demonstrably smaller, not only than either of Barack Obama’s inaugurals but also than the antiTrump Women’s March taking place at the same time his head exploded. A few hours later, Press Secretary Sean Spicer made his first appearance in the White House pressroom to double down on Trump’s lies. “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration—period—both in person and around the globe,” he bellowed, then stomped out without taking questions.

The next day, things went from worse to worser. Trump adviser and designated equivocator Kellyanne Conway defended Spicer on Meet the Press, by saying he merely was presenting “alternative facts.” All righty then.

WHY IT MATTERS. The Twitterverse, led by Merriam-Webster, swiftly noted that “alternative facts” are not, you know, Actual Facts. “A fact is a piece of information presented as having objective reality,” denizens of the dictionary tweeted. The blow-up was laughable, except for this unnerving Actual Fact: Trump began his term by challenging not merely journalistic accuracy—but the nature of reality itself. That’s an ominous sign for those fearful of how his shameless serial lying links to an aggressively authoritarian nature. “The issue is small, trivial and stupid — but the act of dishonesty and arguing about it is a big deal,” the Republican strategist Steve Schmidt told Politico.“Purposeful deceit, willful lying by a government spokesperson, is the hallmark of a totalitarian or an authoritarian regime. It’s absolutely pernicious in a democracy.” BOTTOM LINE. “Who are you going to believe,” Groucho Marx famously quipped,“me or your lying eyes?” For centuries, more solemn scholars have warned of leaders who take such a formulation seriously. In a recent, chilling Huffington Post piece titled “A Message to My Doomed Colleagues in the American Media,” Russian journalist Alexey Kovalev closely compared Trump’s behavior to Vladimir Putin’s. “This man owns you,” he concluded. “[H]is fans will not care if he lies to their faces [and] while you’re busy picking his lies apart, he’ll spit out another mountain of bullshit and you’ll be buried under it.”

Dr. Daniel Martin Joseph passed away on January 10 peacefully at his home, in front of a warm fire being held by his family and dear friends. Dan was born on March 16, 1933 in West Haven, CT to Jenny and Philip Joseph. He attended Yale, graduating with a B.S. in Zoology in 1959. He attended New York Medical College from 1960-1964. He completed his residency in OB-GYN at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in LA from 1961-1964. Dan was in private practice in Santa Barbara with partners Drs. James Shipp and Robert Reid. He listened with great attention to his patients, respecting and caring for each as an individual. He was helpful at each stage of life, being on the forefront of openly discussing women’s issues, giving seminars on menopause, and treating with bioidentical hormones long before it was en vogue. After retiring and being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Dan began painting with encouragement and tutelage from his dear friend and local artist Kristena West. He found great satisfaction, calm and therapeutic release in putting paint on canvas. His art has been displayed and sold at Hospice of Santa Barbara and many other exhibits, including in his home. Many beautiful expressions of his creativity adorn the walls of he and his wife Sara’s home. As an incredible human being, physician, artist, husband and father, Dan always acted with honesty, generosity, dignity and heartfelt caring for others. Dan is survived by Sara Joseph, his wife and partner of 41 years; his brother and sisterin-law Nate and Linda Joseph of North Haven, CT; children Danelle Joseph of Ojai, Philip and Caroline Joseph of San Diego, David and Jasmine Joseph of Brooklyn, NY, Chris Joseph and Leann Sgobba of Santa Ynez; and four grandsons Noah, Alec, Andrew and Dean. 18

Robert Martin Blomstad was born at home in Berkeley, CA on December 29, 1921 to Conrad Blomstad and Hilda De Souza. Raised in Oakland, Bob eventually lived most of his life in Hayward. He enlisted in the Navy and served as an electrician throughout World War II and the Korean Conflict. Married in August of 1945 to Dorris Eckhart, their marital union gave birth to two children: Susan in 1946 and Tom in 1948. Bob and Dorris, both converts to the Catholic faith, made their faith a large part of their lives. Bob served as an active member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society at All Saints parish in Hayward for many years. Supporting his family as an electrician, he was employed at Parks Air Force Base and then Alameda Naval Air Station before he retired. He was an avid slide photographer and his subjects were the various beautiful landscapes in the Sierra Nevada range and in New Mexico, a frequent vacation spot for Bob and Dorris. Dorris died in 1999 and Bob lived in Hayward until 2007, when he moved to Villa Santa Barbara to be near his daughter, who was the Director of Mission Renewal Center at the Old Mission. He volunteered his skills as an electrician at the Mission a few days each week until 2013. In August of 2014, he and his daughter moved to an apartment together. He is survived by his two children, Susan, a Franciscan Sister, and Tom, who lives in Oregon. He was blessed with mental health until his death, primarily caused by mesothelioma. Death occurred after a month of hospice care on January 5th, 2017. Funeral services will be held at 11 am on Thursday, Feb-

Maclyn Erickson flashed through life with unending curiosity, a passion for knowledge, an anger for things unjust, and an undying love of her family. Small in stature and mighty in spirit, Maclyn raised her two daughters in LA County and worked as a social worker. She always sought meaning in life, later earning both an MA in Marriage & Family Counseling and a Doctorate in Ministry. During her years in Palm Desert Maclyn created and hosted the “RadioActive Women’s Talk Show”, served as a spiritual counselor at Betty Ford Center, taught at College of the Desert, and conducted workshops on “Saying Goodbye”. After the death of husband John Erickson Maclyn moved to Los Osos where she was active in community groups supporting women’s rights and peace efforts. After relocating to Santa Barbara to be closer to family she continued taking classes and workshops at Adult Ed and Pacifica. She loved coffee, sweets, and a good conversation with friends that she enhanced with thought-provoking questions. She is remembered by those who love her for her keen intelligence, clever wit, hip style, an unpredictable and fiery temper, but most of all for her love of her family. She will be forever missed by daughters Melanie Royer and Stephanie Calkins, their husbands Bob Royer and Tom Calkins, grandsons Tim Royer, Matt Calkins, Evan Calkins and his wife, Lauren; sister Sharon McManus Wood and her husband Bill Wood, as well as extended family members and friends.

She moved to Compton Ca. in 1967 were she worked for Mattel Toy Factory until 1978, she return back to Santa Barbara to be closer to her family, she moved to Lompoc Ca. She was then employed with Raytheon Electronics in Goleta Ca. In 1979 until July 1, 1998 forced into medical retirement after an injury on the job.

Jeanne grew up in a Vaudeville family. The act was named, "Can you Resista?" Resista, Jeanne's mother, would levitate on cue. They played Carnegie Hall and many other venues. No one else has duplicated "Resista's" ability, and she, passed on the family secret, which remains safe to this day. As a teen, she married Robert Bielefelt and soon Barbara and Bruce were born. That marriage disintegrated and Jean began a "Rosie the Riveter" position in wartime assembly at Douglas Aircraft. She was assigned to buck rivets inside wings and tail structures because she was small enough to fit inside. It was hideous work, akin to spending the workday inside a ringing church bell. The man she complained to about these awful work conditions was her supervisor and soon to be second husband, Arthur Benson, they married and five years later, Leslie arrived, joining his older half siblings, Barbara and Bruce. She was defined by her stunning energy, I.Q., curiosity and life-long work ethic, ending with a 17-year career working in the LA Department of Water and Power. Throughout her life, she designed and built 12 residences, graduated high school at 40 and College at 50. She always found time to play practical life simulation games, such as "store" and "garden with grandma" at our beloved mountain cabin with her grandchildren. Her walnut jello and crockpot meals were predictably tasty. Her decline most notably began in 2005, when concerned granddaughter, Kerstin, found her unconscious in her residence. Afterward, she lived with dementia for an additional 12 years. Caring for her with this disease was very difficult for her son and granddaughter, who knew how much she valued her independence. When mental clarity would come, she was unhappy, but cont’D on page 19

Trump’s in the Pink

CATS IN THE HATS: Last week’s column

drew flak from the Trumpsters, so I thought I’d go pro-Trump this week. Give Trump a break. How would you feel if on your second day on a job you found out that more than a million people hated you and everything you want to do? And your only international friend is a communist dictator in Russia. During the first Cold War, the U.S. threw communist sympathizers in prison. Now Czar Vladimir Putin is Trump’s sweetheart and may have even given him campaign rubles. On Saturday Night Live, the bare-chested Putin actor Beck Bennett bragged at helping Trump win the presidency. “It’s the most expensive thing we’ve ever bought.” You can’t say the new president isn’t clever. He covers up fast. He first blamed the U.S. intelligence community for exposing his golden shower coziness with the Kremlin. But when he visited the CIA on his second day on the job, facing some of the same people, he blamed (who else?) the news media for blowing the whistle on the Russian shadow election campaign. Not true, but these days, who cares? You want truth? Watch the Super Bowl. You want facts from the White House? Borrow its copy of the Sporting News. So now whenever Trump makes a goof, he can blame the reporters. Except for Fox GOP News, of course. While the other chan-

nels were showing scenes of the Women’s March, you saw darn fewer of those pink “pussy hats” on Fox. So what if a million people marched to protest Trump’s agenda and called for a more caring society? What good will that do? Look at poor President Lyndon Johnson. I remember protesters chanting during the Vietnam War, “Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?” Was LBJ supposed to be over there counting or something? Of course not. He had a war to lose. LBJ did a lot of good things, but he could count marching feet and decided to opt out of seeking reelection. Another well-deserved post-election prize for the Trumps: Their kids are bowling at the White House. Shortly after the inauguration, Donald Trump Jr. posted a video of his wife, Vanessa, and their children bowling in lanes installed in the basement by President Richard Nixon in 1969 before he had to quit for subverting democracy. Will Putin bowl with President Trump when he visits and sleeps in the Lincoln Bedroom?

obituaries continued when the mental fog returned, she was happy. In the end, pneumonia finally took her in spite of antibiotics. She always knew, loved and was loved by her family. She will be remembered for her meticulously hand-decorated Christmas pantsuits and spark-plug personality.

Among treasured memories were 1960, when the family Vacationed at the Santa Barbara beach. In 1990, she was along during a Hot air balloon crash landing. In 1992, By special invitation, she sat copilot in the Goodyear blimp and the pilot had her take it down 1000 feet. She pushed it into a 60-degree full speed crash dive alarming the passengers. She also wrote a Solar Power Report for LADWP that is valid even today. Her children were Barbara, Bruce and Leslie. She is survived by son Leslie, seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. No services are planned. Donations to the Friendship Center (heidi@friendshipcenter. org) are welcome as they gave her stimulation and support for a number of years. SantaBarbara@home.com cooperative also helped. Finally, thanks to Kerstin for years of managing her health care.

Will he have to insert a quarter to play? With Saturday Night Live getting hits from Trump on Twitter, I watched reruns on Hulu. I wonder if he’ll keep watching at the White House. Or will the kids have to sneak out to view it at the Secret Service post? You have to give credit to Trump for bringing the world together and getting people on their feet, parading. Speaking of counting, think of all the pounds lost through the exercise. “Even the introverts are here,” read one poster. Another, not in Moscow, read,

“Democracy is not a spectator sport.” A lot of Muslim head scarves were worn, and I liked one woman’s stars-and-stripes model. My favorite sign at the Santa Barbara march showed a drawing of the Statue of Liberty with the words “I’m With Her.” Could Trump argue with that? Maybe put it on a postage stamp? Despite the warm, affectionate things Trump has said about our brothers and sisters the Mexicans, Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto plans to come to Washington to meet Trump next Tuesday, flying rather than driving, due to false reports that Trump’s Wall is already up. Will Peña Nieto have to sign loan papers to finance it? As we all know, Trump is going to raise hell in Washington, D.C. Will his regime be a refreshing amusement-park-ride jolt or an earthquake? I think we’re not really aware of what’s coming. Save your money. As Margo Channing, played by Bette Davis, famously said in the movie All About Eve, “Fasten your seatbelts.

H2S Oversight Stinks

T

he county Office of Emergency Management reports on the so-called Ellwood Incident of October 9-11, 2016, were shared with the public and Goleta City Council last week. They laid out serious lapses in the current systems to alert the public to the release of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which can kill humans at 100 parts per million, as well as deaden their ability to smell it. In the October incident, however, some people had to evacuate their homes or fell ill. The reports also demonstrate how casually Venoco takes its responsibilities to share vital information. The oil company apparently thinks its Ellwood Onshore Facility fence-line monitoring devices, most of which registered the toxic gas drifting down from Ellwood Canyon, is also the boundary for its reporting duty. The “incident” happened early on a Sunday, and the automated email alerting APCD (Air Pollution Control District) was not read until that evening, well after citizens’ complaints of a noxious smell initiated county investigation. Would it have made a difference if Venoco had replaced the permanent monitor it had to remove from Hollister Avenue in 2015? When will Venoco find a suitable location in west Goleta for this monitor? It took until Sunday night to identify the H2S source— an agricultural water well drilling operation—even though the drillers’ personal monitors had been “activated.” Neither the property owner nor the drilling team reported this fact to officials. Equally incredible is that APCD’s sole H2S monitor was out being calibrated, and one had to be borrowed from San Luis Obispo. It makes no sense to have only one such device in an area where thousands of people could be exposed. —Vic Cox, Goleta

Left Behind

T

he last issue reflects all the gripes against Trump of Independent staff and reflects liberal and progressive arrogance, attitudes of a geographic center of the Left Coast, the history of support for local professional politicians and activists, and “boutique” causes. Isn’t it strange that because of this bias we will

now have a throwback government of older white businessmen? What The Independent should do instead is challenge Trump supporters with the issues, albeit complex and subtle, that challenge America, such as the information age leaving the poor and middle class behind, changing demographics of society in age and wealth, the phony/artificial economy of inordinate debt and “helicopter money,” shifting geopolitics such as the consolidation of Eurasia in the “New Silk Road” initiative, and so on. —Merle Betz, S.B.

I am emerging from my own personal doom and gloom as I keep thinking of a nation’s fall from grace.

ights! camera! action! It may be a worn phrase, but it’s an apt one to herald the 32nd annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival, which kicks off on Wednesday, February 1, and illuminates our seaside berg with all things cinematic. This year’s program, once again, offers an array of events that will keep even the staunchest cinephile a twitter. The 11-day festival agenda features, among other things, an abundance of movies from the U.S. and around the globe; tributes to actors who took daring roles and so rose above the fray; panels with screenwriters, producers, and women in the business; and a slew of educational events that include family-friendly films, free screenings, and a three-day filmstudies symposium. Opening night begins at the Arlington Theatre with the world premiere of Charged, a documentary that recounts chef Charged and outdoorsman Eduardo Garcia’s rehabilitation — both physically and emotionally — after nearly being killed by 2,400 volts of electricity while hiking in the Montana backcountry. On Thursday, February 2, the festival will be humming along at full speed when it welcomes Denzel Washington, the recipirecipi ent of this year’s Maltin Modern Master Award, to the Arlington stage. So get ready to throw responsibility to the wind and immerse yourself in the wonderful and exciting spectacle that is the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. —Michelle Drown

August Wilson. … I was recently offended at someone who in the press called [Gabriel] the “noble idiot.” I took great offense to that because he’s not an idiot. He’s a hero who was injured in the military defending his country. That’s not an idiot by any stretch of the imagination. So my approach was fully respectful because everybody is somebody’s child. And this is the writings of August Wilson under the leadership of Denzel Washington, and everybody is playing at the highest level. Durling: Jovan, you have a powerful scene at the end of the movie with Viola, who has a long monologue. Can you tell us about shooting that scene and your approach to it? Jovan Adepo: My approach was just following the lead of the talented cast I got to work with. … As far as the scene, Viola set the tone, just having a conversation, just going through it with one another. … A note that Mr. Washington gave to me was, “Just make sure your mother understands where you are coming from. Because you could have called her over the phone … if you were just going to tell her you weren’t going to go to the funeral. But this is your moment, you came all the way home from wherever you’re living at this time to say it and say it in a particular way, so make sure you do your best to express what you’re feeling so that she understands you, whether you’re right or wrong, make sure she understands you.” So that’s what I tried my best to do in that monologue. Durling: The film has a lot going on. How did you work with the rhythm, where you cut away … Washington: It’s music, you know? There’s a rhythm to it; there’s a music to it. [I was] constantly talking with Hughes Winborne, the editor, and finding the rhythm. Not staying on the beat all the time editorially, but understanding that there is a rhythm. There’s a line [in the play], Lyons says, “I told you Bonnie working.” [Troy] says, “Well, what that mean to me, Bon-

nie working? I don’t care if she’s working. Go ask her for 10 dollars if she working. Talk about Bonnie working. Why ain’t you working?” So there’s an actual rhythm to [the lines] and you have to — you don’t have to — but you’ll want to follow the music. Durling: But, I mean, the [editing] choices … when to cut away, let’s say, from Viola’s moment at the end of her long speech to Jovan for a reaction. How … Washington: You use the best. Whatever the best part of it is. Obviously with monologues, keeping the other person alive, if they’re doing the listening, [is important]. But also not being afraid to just stay with her, you know? There’s one take with Viola, and I just stay with her, push in and pull out. These are champagne problems, “Which great actor am I going to cut to?” [Audience laughs.] Black: I’ll say to his credit, he is a director that works from emotion, and I think that served this movie. … Every director cuts a film differently, and I just think [Denzel] was the right director for this. Durling: [It’s a cliché that] we expect that in movies set in the 1950s that [jazz] would be playing, but we don’t hear the music that we actually expect to hear [in this film]. Black: That was Marcelo [Zarvos], our composer, and Denzel’s choice. I remember when we first met with Marcelo, who I think is incredibly talented, Denzel said, “I think I feel piano, I think I feel a piano, an instrument that kind of leads us,” and Marcelo got that. … I do think he did an incredible job because it would have been easier [to go with jazz], you’re right, at that time period, a lot of [music] was jazz in the ’50s, and the film didn’t call for that. Washington: August Wilson is jazz. August Wilson is classical. I’m leading with him. He didn’t need any help. I didn’t need for people to think, “Oh, this is when we’re supposed to be sad …” It’s all in the music of words … [Audience applause.]

Bunker77: Rich, flamboyant, dangerously addicted, and wildly in love with surfing, Bunker Spreckels died way too young in 1977. This doc uses never-before-seen footage from famed surf photographer Art Brewer to tell the story of the young wave rider while trying to put his extravagance in its proper cultural context.

The Most Beautiful Day: How would you spend your last days if you were terminally ill? That’s explored in this touching and delightful romp about two friends and their adventures when they are told they have days left to live.

Indivisible: This is a distinctively Italian brand of neo-surrealism concerning Dasy and Viola, conjoined twins searching for a better life: at first away from the older people who profit from their talent for singing and, eventually, apart from one another. The leads, Angela and Mariana Fontana, are real-life identical twins and great singers.

This Beautiful Fantastic: Directed by Simon Aboud, son-in-law of Sir Paul McCartney, this crowd-pleasing modern day fairy tale is about a woman who was raised by ducks and strives through her OCD ways to become a children’s book author, eventually finding guidance from her grumpy neighbor and their shared garden.

crime scenes At the End of the Tunnel: This Argentinian gem involves a wheelchair-bound man who lets a woman and her daughter move in and then realizes bank robbers are tunneling beneath his home to access a nearby vault. Then, physical challenges aside, he decides to get in on the action.

docUmentarY

The Shepherd: Tensions between traditional lifestyles and selling out to developers steadily mount in this expertly paced film about a Spanish shepherd. When he refuses to move, his neighbors’ need for money reaches a breaking point.

Little Wing: In this touching Finnish drama, a daughter plays parent to her scattered mother while also enduring bullying from the richer girls in her equestrian class and the attention of boys in her housing complex. When she hits the road in a stolen car to find her father, matters grow more confusing and poignant.

Cradle of Champions: This film takes a raw and intimate look at New York City’s Golden Gloves, the largest amateur boxing tournament on the planet, through four participants, revealing the five boroughs’ many faces while relaying unique yet universal personal struggles on the path toward the championship. Ken San: This doc about one of Japan’s most legendary actors, Ken Takakura, is a meditation on the creative process, and how an artistic giant such as Takakura meets life in all its joys and sorrows.

Most famous for being the place where Dustin Hoffman perfected his Rain Man character, the Santa Barbara facility began at the current site of Westmont College in 1945 as the West Coast outpost of the Philadelphia school that Helena Devereux founded in Philadelphia in 1912.

Incubation

paul wellman

Many know The Playgrounds, perched high atop Goleta off West Camino Cielo, as just that: a Mother Nature–made playground of sandstone boulders, dark caves, and narrow ravines, familiar to rock-hoppers, revelers, and relaxers. After recent rains, though, the familiar becomes unfamiliar, when usually dry rock bowls capture the sky’s offerings. On a January hike, I went back to the playground of my teenage years (which were memorably rainier) and saw small puddles enjoying momentary existences while, down below, reservoirs lay still amid an ongoing drought and the ocean met perpetually with the land. On this landscape sculpted by oceanic water millennia ago, when the sea left seashells in the sandstone, it was a ponderous delight to see these little moments of water. These periods of rain give places such as The Playgrounds and the more popular Lizard’s Mouth a new character. Now would be a great time to head up to Camino Cielo, refreshed by the rains.

Kyle Ashby

the he ssan anDbox

or the better part of the past decade, Kyle Ashby has been Santa Barbara’s entrepreneur enabler. Using his own web development background, the Goleta native and UCSB grad connects budding business owners under the StartupSB umbrella and was integral in creating the Impact Hub on State Street. His latest venture is The Sandbox, a new workspace and event venue on Olive Street just below East Haley.

Who’s behind The Sandbox? My business partner, Mark Schulbach, and I have known

each other for more than 30 years. We were both in a place in our careers where the collaboration made sense and our skills and interests complemented each other. Mark’s hustle as an entrepreneur, contractor, and endurance athlete is ridiculously inspiring. Add in a great group of investors and the best event producer in town, Warner Anderson, and we’ve got a solid team coming together.

What makes it stand out? We have one of the coolest buildings in town and are offer-

ing the biggest variety of work options. [Monthly rates are $129-$950, and $50+ an hour for events.] The building design is a mix between a big-city loft, warehouse, art gallery, and California beach bungalow. We’ve built it with community and collisions as the focus, including a street-front space with a large roll-up door where our members can interact with the public or meet in our Airstream conference room. We’ve also got a theater-sized screen and a ridiculous audio system that will allow us to host business presentations and screen movies. We’re a big part of the upcoming Santa Barbara Jazz Festival.

Is there room for another spot like this in town? Coworking is growing every-

where, and Santa Barbara is still in its infancy when it comes to innovative work spaces and building communities around them. There certainly is a lot of noise around entrepreneurship and work spaces lately, but Santa Barbara has a lot to learn from other communities. I think the spaces that provide value, expertise, and a true understanding of how to build community and opportunity will rise up.

Who will use The Sandbox? We are focused on the intersection between technology, creativity, and lifestyle with a passion for the environment that allows us to live the outdoorfocused life we do. Our members will be entrepreneurs, start-ups, technologists, creative professionals, lifestyle-brand companies, and organizations that focus on developing community, entrepreneurship, and solutions for environmental issues. The so-called Lagoon District is really starting to attract some creative folks.

We love the neighborhood. Combine a community of architects, designers, furniture stores, contractors, creative agencies, craftsmen, recording studios, new entrepreneurial and startup ventures, and some of the best beer and Mexican food in town — the area has a great community vibe that thrives on creativity. Add in places like SBCAST, Bici Centro, Oniracom, and LoaCom, and you have a truly local ecosystem supporting itself and inspiring hustle. It feels like the Santa Barbara I knew as a kid and college student. See thesandboxsb.com. independent.com

Parenting Under a

Toddler in Chief

W

hen you’re a kid, they tell you the greatest thing about this country is that absolutely anyone can grow up to be president, even someone you’d never imagine. And then he does. Putting politics aside for a moment because I literally can’t even, let’s ruminate on basic human character, or the atrocious lack thereof. As a parent, the election of a pompous and petulant bully into the highest office in the land sets a tricky example for the spongy, observant little pre-people we are trying to usher thoughtfully into humanity. We fear for immigrants and minorities, our health care, our press, and our planet, yes, yes, yes. But any parent who denies also being terrified of the long-term impact this clown’s clamorous invectives and derelict appointments will have on little Logan’s and Chloe’s psyches is telling a whopper of Trumpian proportions. I mean big league. HUGE. Because what’s the message here? That if you’re an egotistical pig who says vulgar things about your own daughter, derides prisoners of war, and mocks disabled people, then a minority of voters and a few Russian hackers will make you king and move your golden toilet and, ahem, showers into the West Wing? It’s like winning the Little League World Series on a steady diet of Slurpees and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, you guys. It’s anarchy. But don’t fret, my quivering kid-herding brethren. With the nation’s top media outlets finally calling out BRATUS on his infantile antics, his approval rating lower than any incoming president in the last 40 years, and even C-listers refusing cash money to play at his inauguration, we have a plan: If our new president can’t be a role model for kids, he can be a shining example of what happens when you demand all of the attention in the entire world and then act like an astonishing ass. In fact, it’s looking like he’ll provide generous daily lessons for your family’s own handy How-Never-toemail: starshine@roshell.com Conduct-Yourself-in-Life Handbook. For example, a man whose foreign-policy strategy may well boil down to predawn Tweets of “I know you are, but what am I?” affords us a terrific opportunity to talk to our kids about handling criticism. Should you acknowledge it and thank the person for their feedback? Should you ignore it and let it roll off your back? Or should you maybe explode in a petty and poorly spelled tirade of utterly irrelevant insults that prove you’re both uninformed and unhinged? And which option is most befitting the person who commands America’s 1.5 million troops? Here are some other great lessons gleaned from watching Trump in the last month alone: • When you lie more often than you tell the truth, people stop believing you. • Failing to laugh at yourself makes you even funnier to those laughing at you in the first place. • Think before you speak — and before you Tweet. Things you say on social media never go away. • Saying you’re not racist does not mean you’re not racist. • Denying and deflecting wrongdoing rather than taking responsibility for your actions makes you look like an idiot. No, it reveals you to be an idiot. • Listen to how someone sounds who’s always bragging about himself. Now look at the size of his hands. Do you think there might be a connection? • Never vote in anger. Look what happens.

by Starshine

RoShell

A couple of friends of mine are using the transcripts from Trump’s first press conference to teach their kids valuable lessons, like how to edit poor grammar, and why a decent vocabulary is so important. Bit by bit, we’ll show our children that in this country, absolutely anyone can grow up to be better than the president. Then again, it’s possible our progeny will reject their new head of state as a role model—even without our help. Said another friend:“My daughter, unprompted, saw him on TV and said, ‘I don’t like Donald Trump. He says stupid too much.’ “She’s 4.” Starshine Roshell is the author of Broad Assumptions.

t says something about Santa Barbara High School’s sports history that Randall Cunningham considers it such an honor to be named to the Dons Athletics Hall of Fame. “Growing up in Santa Barbara, I wouldn’t change for anything else,” Cunningham said this week. “To come back and be honored by my school in sports or arts is the greatest thing anybody can achieve.” A 1981 SBHS graduate, Cunningham excelled as quarterback and a high jumper. He led the Dons football team to a school-record 13 victories in 1980 and went on to become a recordsetting passer and punter at UNLV, and an often-spectacular QB during 16 seasons in the NFL.

TEACHING CHEF: Gerri French offers tips on keeping food tasty yet healthy.

Fresh Food = Good Medicine G

erri French’s passion is reducing the risk of cancer by teaching good nutrition. So this very strong and slender dietician—who is a certified diabetes educator at Sansum Clinic and has more than 20 years of counseling experience — is demystifying nutrition through a cooking class called Amazing Health Recipes. Her hands-on classes are a lot more fun than a demonstrationtype class because you learn by actually cooking. This format gets all of your senses involved — you inhale the aromas, listen to soups simmering, and experience the meditative rhythm of chopping vegetables. The gluten-free recipes are convenient, simple, and designed to miniCooking TeaCher mize food cravings, sustain energy, stabilize mood, and reduce inflammation. She likes to teach how to enhanCes healTh wiTh cook “planned-overs,” meals that can be converted into subsequent feasts by adding fresh ingredients. by Sharen O’Riordan The first four-hour session focuses on vegetarian recipes that can be transformed into vegan dishes (no eggs or dairy). She’ll show how organic tempeh, which is a traditional fermented soy product from Indonesia, can be made into a meatless loaf made with walnuts and mushrooms. Other dishes include a leafy green salad with pears, goat cheese, toasted pecans, and roasted beets, as well as sweet potato, parsnip, and turnip “fries.” The second session includes several vegetarian dishes and a fish recipe for the pescatarians, who benefit from omega-3 fats (but there will also be some insight into how to get those fats from veggies, too). Recipes include a spicy fish stew, Delicata squash with dukkah seasoning and tahini sauce, and Gerri’s gluten-free biscotti. The medicinal value of Asian and Mediterranean cooking herbs will be shared throughout both cooking sessions as will some recipes that French recently taught to students at Rancho La Puerta spa in Tecate, Mexico. No matter the topic of her current class, French believes that fresh, colorful ingredients are key to healthful eating—they taste better and offer superior nutrition, thanks to numerous phytonutrients. French prefers purchasing food from organic vendors at the farmers’ markets since you can always ask them about how the food was grown and harvested. If you’re unable to make the markets, she suggests joining one of the many Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs in town, such as Local Harvest Delivery or Plow to Porch, which delivers straight to your home.

le Macaron

T

Sweetens Up Paseo Nuevo

paul wellman

o Santa Barbaran sweet tooths and gourmands who love to live la vie Française: There’s a sweet new spot in town. Opened last year, Le Macaron French Pastries is a temple for those colorful, light, and chewy drops of heaven made from ground almonds, soft meringue, and creamy ganache filling. “There is no bakery that specializes in macarons, so it’s a niche,” said owner Hassia Kateb, who moved to Santa Barbara from France and opened the Paseo Nuevo Le Macaron in May 2016. This macaron mecca is part of a franchise of 40 Le Macaron shops across the United States, originally created by Rosalie Guillem and Audrey Guillem-Saba. The mother-daughter team opened their first store in 2009 shortly after arriving in the U.S. from France. They wanted to share an authentic macaron experience, so they spent months working with an acclaimed French pastry chef to perfect the recipe. “Everything is natural; it’s handmade; there’s no preservatives,” Kateb said. With one bite of these perfectly textured little gems, featuring rich Co-owners Hassia and Karim Kateb ganache flavor nestled between feather-light meringue pillows, the quality of ingredients and preparation is undeniable. Macaron munchers can pick from 18 flavors, including exotics such as basil, and seasonal flavors like summer’s strawberry kiwi and winter’s Earl Grey tea. The most popular flavors are the lavender white chocolate and salted caramel. All of the macarons are gluten-free, and a few of the flavors are jam-filled and nondairy. “The coffee is my favorite, for sure!” Kateb said. One taste, and I could see why. The creaminess of the ganache perfectly balanced the strong coffee flavor and kept it from being overly sweet. Seeing Kateb’s infectious excitement as I took a bite made it extra delightful. Her passion for people is a big reason why she opened the shop, she said. “It makes me rich,” she explained of her joy in interacting with customers. The shop also sells gourmet chocolates, croissants, and gelato. On the weekends, Kateb makes her own pastries, including tartes and eclairs. The shop also caters events, such as weddings or showers, creating beautiful displays that are almost ; too pretty to eat. Almost. —Rachel Horrigan lemacaron-us.com

4 GrapeFruiT Tequila

Flavored tequila might seem a superfluous notion, like gilding a lily or bronzing an orchid. But if you don’t have the time to pour and shake, there’s Dulce Vida. (They’ve got a lime version in addition to the grapefruit.) They infuse with real flavors, so you definitely get your Paloma on as soon as you open the bottle. Just pour over ice, and add club soda depending on how many you will consume. It’s pure blue agave for the tequila base, too, so you do feel the alcohol heat, even with the drink weighing in at a judicious 70 proof. And sure, there’s a bit more sweetness than purists will prefer, but it’s advertised as “low cal/low carb,” and that sell should tell you everything. —George Yatchisin See dulcevidaspirits.com.

says that Bar 29 has opened at 1134 Chapala Street, the former home of The Hungry Cat. A reader tells me that the business name comes from the fact that the bar is made of copper, and that copper is atomic number 29 on the element table.

Photo Competition

SBCC Play

“I stood still and was a tree amid the wood,” poet Ezra Pound wrote in “The Tree.” Santa Barbara photographers may want to do some standing of their own among our area saplings to find inspiration for the Wildling Museum’s annual nature photography competition, as this year’s theme is “Trees.” Images can range from close-ups of bark to birds nesting in branches to the form and shape of said tree. There are two contest categories: adult and junior. First, second, and third prizes will be awarded in both. The event is open to anyone living in the tri counties; submissions are due by Monday, May 1. See wildling museum.org. — Michelle Drown

The Theatre Group at SBCC is looking to cast roles —three women, two men —for its upcoming production of Rabbit Hole, the Pulitzer Prize–winning play by David LindsayAbaire. The drama, which explores a family’s reaction to the tragic loss of their 4-year-old boy, ran on Broadway in 2006, earning star Cynthia Nixon a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress. In 2010, Nicole Kidman starred in the film adaptation. Auditions take place at SBCC’s Jurkowitz Theatre on Wednesday-Thursday, February 1-2, 6:30-9:30 p.m.; callbacks are Wednesday, Cynthia Nixon won a Tony Award for February 8; rehearsals begin Thursday, February 16; and her starring role in Rabbit Hole. the play runs April 12-29.

Actress Lily Nicksay Talks Completing Remarkable Trilogy

Holly Bowling, who will play an early show at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Sunday, January 29, is a young musician with classical training and jazz chops who fell in love with the music of the band Phish when she was growing up. Having been too young for their heyday in the early 1990s, she embraced the opportunity presented by the Phish reunion in 2009 with the fervor of a true believer. More than 300 shows later, Bowling knew the band’s music inside and out and proceeded to do something about it. Armed with her knowledge of the sonic techniques of the classical symphonic reduction and a growing talent for jazz improvisation, she began creating transcriptions of her favorite Phish songs. In 2015, she released Distillation of a Dream: The Music of Phish Reimagined for Solo Piano on the Royal Potato Family label. Critical praise for these sophisticated, highly listenable tracks followed, as did a devoted audience for her live shows. Moving on from Phish to another of her favorites, the Grateful Dead, seemed like a natural progression, and in December 2016 Bowling released Better Left Unsung, a collection that includes both some relatively short numbers —“Franklin’s Tower” clocks in at just under four minutes — and some truly Dead-like extended tracks, such as the full “Terrapin Station (Suite)” (16:36) and an otherworldly, unforgettable “Dark Star” at a whopping 27:36. When I spoke with Bowling recently, she was en route between gigs in Seattle and Portland, and she patiently explained that, like her inspirations, she approaches making music through a mix of things. “There are three aspects to what I’m doing,” Bowling said. “There are the jam transcriptions, which I write out myself and then play note for note, and then there are the songs that are unscored, where I improvise the whole thing, like on ‘Dark Star.’ Finally, there are those that sit somewhere in between, like ‘Cassidy,’ where I start out playing the notated structure and then move into improvisation.” Fans of Phish and the Dead can expect to take “some kind of journey” Sunday at 6 p.m., according to Bowling, who declares that, as with those bands, “every night is different.” For more information, call 962-7776 or see sohosb.com. —Charles Donelan

a&e | POSITIVELY STATE STREET

Distractions from the Darkness by Richie DeMaria HEAVY TIMES: “It feels like every thinking person realizes there’s something off right now; there’s an incongruence that can’t be explained,” said Aan’s Bud Wilson, lead singer to the indierock, prog-pop band from Portland, Oregon, who plays the Funzone on Sunday, January 29, Aan at 8 p.m., with L.A.’s Waterslice and two Goleta- and S.B.-born bands, The Flying Garbage and The Greens of Montenegro.“It’s like some sort of cosmic shift. I keep waiting for them to discover the poles have switched.” Wilson has wrestled with some deep personal darkness over the last few years just as the world took a turn for the darkly incomprehensible. From 2015 to our present day, Wilson endured the deaths of his father and two close friends, the end of a six-year relationship, and the dissolution of Aan’s original lineup. The band that had once toured with the likes of Smashing Pumpkins and Built to Spill had skidded into uncertainty, just as Wilson’s personal life seemed again and again to be struck with grief and difficulty. Even as we spoke, his new girlfriend had just suffered multiple fractures in her arm days before, her limb crooked in an S-shape from a slip on unprecedented Portland snowfall ice. And yet out of these rough times, Wilson wrote an album brimming with brightness along with its heavier, darker surges of guitar distortion. Titled Dada Distractions, the album has a spirit of lighthearted freedom and rebirthed vitality, a counterbalance to the woe. “There’s a playfulness to the music; everything is in jest. It’s not heavy for its own sake. I try to have balance of light and dark,” he said.“When things were getting kind of heavy for me, a lot of it seemed absurd. I like the term ‘Dada’ as just being absurdist, and I felt like things were so out of control it resonated with me. Distractions were kind of representative of everything pulling away from the task at hand.” Wilson says the Funzone show will consist almost exclusively of songs from Dada Distractions. For this album, Wilson gathered a new band, and a new sound rose up, lightly grandiose. Some songs, such as “Forever Underfoot,” are quite spacey and pretty and Pink Floyd–like, while others, such as “Into the Fire,” are heavy and anthemic, somewhat in the vein of Arcade Fire or The Besnard Lakes but with more compositional surprises and inventiveness. And others are especially personal —“Bleached Out for Nothing” documents his friend’s descent into schizophrenia, and “Lookout!” is about his father, who passed away last September just two months before the album came out.“He was a cowboy, literally a cattle rancher, and that song is about embracing the now, which I think he always did so well,” Wilson said.“It’s about not feeling like you’re leaving anything undone and celebrating the moment … that’s my takeaway from him.” Aan has been to S.B. several times before, with stops at Biko Garage and Muddy Waters. Though it was difficult to maintain the original concept of the band through the grief —“I don’t know if I did keep it together. I just got lucky that I got through the bullshit.”— the project has rolled with the punches by “always morphing by taking what was coming in, and taking all the mess that was my circumstances and using that for songwriting,” Wilson said. And so, through it all, Wilson is feeling optimistic. “I still feel pretty hopeful. I’m not feeling too bleak about everything; I’ve already done that. I’m trying to think of what’s good and who I can help and who has helped me. We’re all kind of getting fucked over half the time; at least we have each other to lean on.” ALSO AT FUNZONE: The batting-cage music venue will host No Age, the two princes of punk from L.A. who became shining stars of the DIY art-punk scene and inspired many more to make lo-fi ventures into all manner of creativity. They will rock along with Sacramento’s Drug Apts, who have worked with members of Death Grips and LCD Soundsystem, and Ventura’s Sweet Reaper, a Burger Records favorite. n For more info, visit sbdiy.org.

n 1977, Saturday Night Fever crackled onto cinema house screens and emblazoned itself into the minds and memories of a generation. Since then, its infectious soundtrack and spectacular dance scenes have become the stuff Presented by Theater of legend. It’s no surLeague. At the prise, then, that there Granada Theatre, have been a number of Tue., Jan. 17. spin-offs, including a Broadway musical. Last Tuesday, the Theater League brought NorthCore Productions’ and 2Luck Concepts’ touring version of Saturday Night Fever to the Granada for an evening of song and dance. For the stage production, mature themes were toned down to a PG-13 rating, and so the story lost a bit of its intensity. Where the film oozed raw, restless, reckless energy, the musical exuded a rebellious spirit that was soft around the edges. Though the show lacked grittiness, the dance sequences were spectacular. Matt Alfano, who played Tony, was mesmerizing to watch as he lithely and seemingly effortlessly executed one difficult move after another. His dance solo was a highlight of the show.

As for the music, several songs were written for the stage version that felt incongruous to the original Grammy Award–winning film soundtrack. The Bee Gee’s captured lightning in a bottle with tunes such as “Jive Talkin’,” “More Than a Woman,” and “How Deep Is Your Love”— Love” all of which are in the play — setting an aural mood for the film. The new numbers didn’t blend well with the classics. Still, the show was delightfully entertaining and the storyline holds up all these years later, reminding us that we should be dancing, yeah. — Michelle Drown

The evening began with Czech composer Josef Mysliveček’s Wind Octet No. 3 in B-flat Major, a nine-minute introduction to the evening’s objective of illustrating the power of wind instruments. The second piece, Mozart’s Serenade for Winds in C Minor Minor, was introduced by oboist James Austin Smith, who explained that the composition was built on “the darkest minor key” and noted that the austere melody was perfect for Friday’s stormy weather.

The third piece, Mozart’s Serenade for Winds in E-flat Major, built on a classically elegant sound and highlighted the talents of the L.A. Chamber Orchestra’s principle oboist Claire Brazeau. Artistic Director and flutist Adrian Spence joined the ensemble in the final piece, Gounod’s Petite Symphonie, which allowed each instrument’s individual voice to interact as if in conversation. It was lovely to watch the gifted musicians featured in this concert share the beautiful narrative of the wind family, and enjoy themselves in the process. — Gabriel Tanguay

S

et in the north of England and in the 19th-century whaling grounds of Canada’s Baffin Bay, Ian McGuire’s The North Water re-creates a world that is violent and unforgiving: two brutal murders—described in gruesome detail —take place in the first chapter alone. The unrepentant murderer, Henry Drax, is the antagonist of the novel’s semi-hero, Patrick Sumner, a former British Army doctor whose greed and social inferiority during the Indian RebelRebel lion of 1857 have cost him his commission and dignity. Lame from a gunshot wound, Sumner is addicted to laudanum, and he spends his spare time as ship’s surgeon on the Volunteer in an opium haze.

Sumner, however, is a survivor, and he has a great deal to sur vive during the novel’s 250 brisk, bloodspattered pages. Not surprisingly, The North Water occasionally evokes MobyDick, but the Cormac Dick McCarthy of Blood Meridian and the Border Trilogy is a much more obvious influence. Like McCarthy, McGuire revels in describing men—there are very few women in this novel — engaged in work: making an ice


action thriller. Like Michael Punke’s The & entertainment Revenant, McGuire’s Revenant novel will make a great film, with a star turn for someone like Leonardo DiCaprio, but this is one of those books that will always read at least as well as it plays on screen — no matter how many awards the movie eventually wins. — David Starkey

The barbarous particulars of the characters’ labor will put squeamish readers off, although, as in McCarthy’s novels, sheer brutality is somewhat offset by discussions of good and evil and the importance, or absence, of God. Philosophical deliberations, however, are fairly brief and always held in service of some larger, pressing action. Indeed, The North Water moves with the driving pace of an

“a

critic cannot be fair in the ordinary sense of the word,” wrote Oscar Wilde in his great essay “The Critic as Artist.” “It is only about things that do not interest one that one can give a really unbiased opinion, which is no doubt the reason why an unbiased opinion is always absolutely valueless.” A.O. Scott would agree. Indeed, Scott’s new book, Better Living Through Criticism: How to Think About Art, Pleasure, Beauty, and Truth, frequently employs Wilde’s dialogue form, i.e., a skeptic questioning everything, from the battle between art and commerce to how Anton Ego in the movie Ratatouille serves as the perfect emblem of the modern critic. And while Scott writes primarily about film for the New York Times, his book discusses poetry by Rilke and Larkin and Keats, the novels of Elena Ferrante, the work of Victorian-era critics such as Arnold, Pater, and Wilde—and just about anything else he finds worthy of extended analysis. According to him, Better Living Through Criticism was written partly in response to the democratization of criticism and the nowdominant assumption that popular culture is a worthy subject of serious study. Yet Scott, who argues that “being ranked and sorted

is an intrinsic part of every public and worthwhile endeavor,” can’t help but feel a longing for a time when the critic was “able to assume an audience, a tradition, a canon of works and standards.” Yet in the very next sentence, he acknowledges, “Such a world has never existed, of course, but a great deal of criticism—and the criticism of criticism — seems predicated on the belief that it does, or the wish that it would.” Apparently unsolvable conundrums like these are at the heart of the book, and Scott is deft at teasing out their contradictions. In the age of Internet reviews, when anyone who can type can also set up shop as a critic, Better Living Through Criticism demonstrates that style and substance still matter, and that there is a significant difference between those who turn to criticism as a late-night hobby and those for whom it is a craft and a calling. — DS

Jones’s eveninglength dance theater piece Story/Time rips the two elements of its title away from the comfortable context of good old “story time” and pits them against one another in some new kind of tension. For exactly 70 minutes, as tallied by the bright green digital clock projected on the back wall, Jones, seated onstage at a small table, read original stories at a pace that was strictly predetermined—he had just 60 seconds to tell each one. As he did this, dancers from the company swarmed and swirled around him to an eerie, partly electronic score that was played live Presented by by composer Ted Coffey. UCSB Arts & Lectures.

The texts were mostly personal stories, but the autobiographical perspective was periodically interrupted by the third-person point of view or by more poetic pronouncements that conjured up visions of memory, landscape, and loss. The galaxy of art stars that sparkles in Story/Time’s name-dropping night sky clearly indicated both the creative milieu in which Jones has lived and worked for more than four decades and the canon of greats to which he aspires to belong. Aided by Coffey’s sensitive, at times boisterous score, the dancers expressed the depth and complexity of Jones’s choreography while maintaining their own distinct presences and personalities. Seated or standing, dancing or talking, Jones continues to move forward, taking risks and challenging the future with his art, even as he mines his memory for stories from the past. — Charles Donelan

Movie Guide

aybe more than any other animated film of my younger years, Fantasia hit that sweet spot of lasting memory. It was the silly beauty of hippos frolicking in pink tutus and the brooding specter of a demon looming over dark mountains. But mostly it was the music, the flutter of piccolos and the crash of symbols in those scenes that drilled the emotions of Fantasia into my mind and has kept it alive with flashes of nostalgia into my adulthood. That’s why I’ll see it again this weekend when the Santa Barbara Symphony, under the baton of guest conductor David Lockington, will perform live to screened excerpts of the original 1940 Disney film and its Fantasia 2000 reboot. The show will also feature Paul Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber and Lockington’s own CerCer emonial Fantasy Fanfare. Lockington is excited for the audience to feel Fantasia’s lilts and rumbles in their bones. “It’s a totally different experience,” he said. “It’s the same as talking to a person on the phone versus speaking with them face-to-face.” For Lockington, who serves as music director of the Modesto and Pasadena symphonies, the unique performance style is the ideal way to bring the often lofty music down to our reality. “My orientation is toward human contact,” he said, “moving airwaves between people in meaningful ways. It’s about bringing something alive in human scale and in real time.” Plus, Disney is fun.“We all know things are better with humor,” he said. The upcoming kid-friendly performances are perfectly prefaced by the Santa Barbara Symphony’s Concerts for Young People, which will also be led by

Michael H Kreitsek, MA

Transpersonal Counseling Psychology Counseling From a Buddhist Perspective 805 698-0286 Lockington. The 45-minute program is designed to introduce 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to orchestral music through interactive demonstrations, and it’s open to the public. It will feature works by Beethoven, Elgar, and others, and a solo of Pablo de Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen by 17-year-old and Santa Barbara Youth Symphony member Holly Radford. “Young musicians develop life skills like listening, cooperation, and creation,” said Lockington of exposing children early to the art form. And orchestral music is perfect for a malleable mind because the genre itself is flexible. “It’s a kind of pliable, plastic medium that is used in many different environments,” he explained. “You can adapt to any style, any century. And it can enhance something enormously.” Nearly 50 Santa Barbara Unified School District schools will participate. —Tyler Hayden

PREmiERES A Dog’s Purpose (120 mins., PG) Director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape) helms this film based on W. Bruce Cameron’s best-selling novel about a dog who lives several lives, learning from each one. Josh Gad voices the canine in his/her many incarnations, which include a golden retriever, a German shepherd, a corgi, and a Labrador retriever. Dennis Quaid, Britt Robertson, and Peggy Lipton also star. Fairview/Fiesta 5

Gold (121 mins., R) Matthew McConaughey stars in this drama about the Canadian gold-mining/stock market scandal of the ’90s, when Bre-X claimed to find a massive gold deposit in the jungles of Indonesia. Camino Real Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (106 mins., R) Milla Jovovich reprises her role as Alice, returning to Raccoon City to take down the evil Umbrella Corporation, which is intent on wiping out any remaining survivors of the apocalypse.

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

Annual

Rings (102 mins., PG-13) Set 13 years after The Ring Two, this third film in the Ring franchise finds a young woman, Julia, who worries when her boyfriend starts looking for the videotape that is said to kill the watcher after seven days. She soon discovers an even bigger mystery to the urban legend. Camino Real (Opens Thu., Feb. 2)

February 23 Publishes

The Space Between Us (121 mins., PG-13) Asa Butterfield (Son of Rambow, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) stars as Gardner Elliot, a human born on Mars who gets the chance to visit Earth when he turns 16. There, he meets Earthling Tulsa (Britt Robertson), and the two go on an adventure to see as much of the planet as possible before Elliot must return to Mars. Fairview (Opens Thu., Feb. 2)

2 017

NOW SHOWiNG 20th Century Women (118 mins., R) O Dorothea (Annette Bening) is a no-nonsense 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 his mom, the most puzzling of all.

The Founder

Wedding Guide

O The Founder (116 mins., PG-13) With an almost maniacal mix of salesman glee and callous determination, Michael Keaton plays Ray Kroc, the franchising entrepreneur who turned a little hamburger shack called McDonald’s into a global empire. The zippy-fast and bold movie captures fascinating tidbits of the McDonald’s myth, like the McDonald’s brothers’ (Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch) precisely orchestrated service system to Kroc’s controversial use of powdered milk shakes. Most of all, though, it’s an important film in this Trump era, about how a meddling mild man ascends

damn. Fun homages abound without being overplayed.

O La La Land

O Silence

(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.

Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Moonlight

O Moonlight (133 mins., R) “Who is you, man? Who is you, ChiChi ron?” Can a bullied black gay boy, growing up poor in Florida with a drugaddicted mother, ever get to answer that truthfully? Walking a tightrope between tragedy and hope, between hard reality and lyrical filmmaking, Moonlight depicts three pivotal chapters in the life of Chiron, superbly played by three dif different actors. His story is so real, so true, so haunting, it feels as if you’re living it with him. Its impressive accolades are well deserved. If you go to the movies to fall in love, have your heart broken, and walk out with your humanity affirmed, then go see Moonlight. (HDK)

Paseo Nuevo

(137 mins., R)

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) Metro 4 Moana (113 mins., 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. Fairview (Daily sing-along at 2:40pm showing)

Monster Trucks (104 mins., PG) A late afternoon matinee of Monster Trucks recently featured an active crop of kids and parents suffering cabin fever. The kids, in particular, were helplessly mesmerized by the colorful roaring unfolding as the one-pun truck story

Patriots Day (133 mins., R) Mark Wahlberg stars in Peter Berg– directed account of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, J.K. Simmons, and Michelle Monaghan also star.

The Resurrection of Gavin Stone (92 mins., PG) Brett Dalton (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) stars as a washed-up former child actor who, after doing community service for a megachurch, discovers Christianity in this faith-based film. Fiesta 5

O Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (134 mins., PG-13) 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 spinoff, directed by Gareth Edwards, hits right in the middle, too. Interstellar dogfights sizzle above deliciously immersive worlds where sassy androids best storm troopers who still can’t shoot worth a

(161 mins., 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)

Metro 4

Sing (108 mins., PG) Koala bear Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) owns a theater that has fallen upon financial difficulties thanks to a series of flops he’s produced. In an attempt to raise funds to save the theater, Moon holds a singing competition, which brings unlikely hopefuls to audition. Fiesta 5

O Split (117 mins., PG-13) M. Night Shyamalan’s newest film doesn’t do a whole lot to subvert the tropes associated with his works, but it gives me hope that he’s learned from some of his past mistakes. The main antagonist(s), played by James McAvoy, kidnaps three teenage girls as part of some nefarious pact, and the girls must play on his 23 different personalities to try and escape. Evoking a dark tone and surreal atmosphere with some Wes Anderson–style camerawork and sharp dialogue, Split disarms and unsettles. If you’re a fan of the Shyamalan of old, then this is a must-see.

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of JanuaRy 26 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Westward Ho! is the name of a village in southwestern England. Its name is impressive because of the exclamation point. But it’s not as dramatic as that of the only town on earth with two exclamation points: Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, which is in Quebec. I invite you Aries folks to be equally daring. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you have a cosmic mandate and poetic license to cram extra !!!!s into all your writing and speaking, and even add them to the spelling of your name! Why? Because this should be one of the most exciting and ebullient phases of your astrological cycle — a time to risk showing just how enthusiastic and energetic you are!!!!!

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): The New York Film Critics Circle named Casey Affleck the Best Actor of the Year for his role in the film Manchester by the Sea. In his acceptance speech at the award ceremony, Affleck gave a dramatic reading of quotes by David Edelstein, a prominent critic who has criticized his work.“Mumbly and mulish,” was one of Edelstein’s jabs about Affleck.“Doesn’t have a lot of variety,” was another. A third: “Whenever I see Affleck’s name in a movie’s credits, you can expect a standard, genre B picture — slowed down and tarted up.” I suspect that in the coming weeks, Taurus, you may get a vindication comparable to Affleck’s. I suggest you have wicked fun with it, as he did.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The roulette wheels at casinos in Monaco have 37 pockets. Eighteen are black, 18 are red, and one is green. On any particular spin, the ball has just less than half a chance of landing in a red or black pocket. But there was one night back in August 1913, at the Casino de Monte-Carlo, when probability seemed inoperative. The little white ball kept landing on the black over and over again. Gamblers responded by increasingly placing heavy bets on red numbers. They assumed the weird luck would soon change. But it didn’t until the 27th spin. (The odds of that happening

were 136,823,184 to 1.) What does this have to do with you? I suspect you’re in a comparable situation — the equivalent of about 20 spins into an improbable streak. My advice: Don’t bet on the red yet.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Born to a religious mother on July 8, 1839, John D. Rockefeller amassed a fortune in the oil industry. Even in comparison to modern billionaires like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, he’s the richest American who ever lived. “God gave me the money,” he said on numerous occasions. Now I’m going to borrow the spirit of Rockefeller’s motto for your use, Cancerian. Why? Because it’s likely you will be the recipient of blessings that prompt you to wonder if the Divine Wow is involved. One of these may indeed be financial in nature. (P.S.: Such boons are even more likely to transpire if you’re anchored in your sweet, dark wisdom and your holy, playful creativity.)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What influence do you need most in your life right now? Are you suffering because you lack a particular kind of help or teaching? Would you benefit from having a certain connection that you have not yet figured out how to make? Is there a person or event that could heal you if you had a better understanding about how you need to be healed? The coming weeks will be a favorable time to get useful answers to these questions — and then take action based on what you discover.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The next two weeks will be a favorable time to kiss the feet of helpful allies, but not to kiss the butts of clever manipulators. I also advise you to perform acts of generosity for those who will use your gifts intelligently, but not for those who will waste your blessings or treat you like a doormat. Here’s my third point: Consider returning to an old fork in the road where you made a wrong turn and then making the correct turn this time. But if you do, be motivated by bright hope for a different future rather than by sludgy remorse for your error.

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the beginning was the wild cabbage. Our ancestors found that it had great potential as food, and proceeded to domesticate it. Over the centuries, they used selective breeding to develop many further variations on the original. Kale and kohlrabi were the first to appear. By the 15th century, cauliflower had been created. Broccoli came along a hundred years later, followed by Brussels sprouts. Today there are at least 20 cultivars whose lineage can be traced back to the wild cabbage. In my astrological opinion, you Libras are in a wild cabbage phase of your long-term cycle. In the coming months you can and should do seminal work that will ultimately generate an abundance of useful derivatives.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I don’t necessarily guarantee that you will acquire paranormal powers in the coming weeks. I’m not saying that you will be able to foretell the future or eavesdrop on conversations from a half mile away or transform water into whiskey-flavored coffee. But I do suspect that you will at least tap further into a unique personal ability that has been mostly just potential up until now. Or you may finally start using a resource that has been available for a long time. For best results, open your imagination to the possibility that you possess dormant magic.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 1733, workers finished building the New Cathedral in Salamanca, Spain. But if you go there today, you will see two seemingly modern elements on one façade: carvings of a helmeted astronaut and of a gargoyle licking an ice cream cone. These two characters were added by craftsmen who did renovations on the cathedral in 1992. I offer this vignette as a metaphor for your life, Scorpio. It’s a favorable time to upgrade and refine an old structure in your life. And if you do take advantage of this opening, I suggest you add modern touches.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I suspect that in the coming weeks, you will be afforded opportunities to bend the rules in ways that could make life simpler, more pleasurable, and more successful — or all of the above. To help you deal with the issue of whether these deviations would have integrity, I offer you these questions: Would bending the rules serve a higher good, not just your selfish desires? Is there an approach to bending the rules that may ultimately produce more compassionate results than not bending the rules? Could you actually get away with bending the rules, both in the sense of escaping punishment and also in the sense of being loyal to your own conscience?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A London-based think tank does an annual study to determine which of the world’s countries offers the most freedom. The Legatum Institute measures indicators like civil liberties, social tolerance, and the power to choose one’s destiny. The current champion is Luxembourg. Canada is in second place. France is 22nd, the U.S. is 26th, and Italy 27th. Since I’m hoping you will markedly enhance your own personal freedom in the coming months, you might want to consider moving to Luxembourg. If that’s not an option, what else could you do? The time is ripe to hatch your liberation plans.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I love to see dumpsters that have been decorated by graffiti artists. Right now there’s one by the side of a busy road that I often drive down. Its drab gray exterior has been transformed into a splash of cartoon images and scripts. Amid signatures that look like “Riot Goof” and “Breakfast Toys” and “Sky Blooms,” I can discern a ninja rhinoceros and a goldcrowned jaguar and an army of flying monkeys using squirt guns to douse a forest fire. I suspect it’s a perfect time for you to be inspired by this spectacle, Pisces. What dumpster-like situation could you beautify?
