There’s nothing better than getting an early copy of a coming movie, except maybe getting about a hundred of them. It takes a slew of writers to view the films and interview the filmmakers who populate our Meet the Makers pullout, and a whole ‘nother group of editors, copy editors, proofreaders, and edit and ad production designers to put it together, most of whom are pictured here in one way or another. You can meet their work in this week’s inside look at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival filmmakers.

International UCSB Students Stuck in Iran; Syrian Couple Separated by Tyler Hayden espite President Donald

alex wyn dha m

Trump’s assurances over Twitter on Saturday that only 109 people were detained or denied entry into the United States as a result of his travel ban, Customs and Border Protection officials confirmed Tuesday that in fact 721 people have so far been barred from entering the country. UC Santa Barbara graduate student Navid Yousefian is among them. Yousefian, a political science PhD student born and raised in Iran—one of the seven Muslimmajority countries named in Trump’s executive order that prohibits their citizens from entering the U.S. for the next 90 days—had traveled to Tehran last week to visit family. When he tried returning to TROUBLING TIMES: “It’s sad; it’s depressing,” said Imam Yama Niazi of the travel ban and its marginalizing effects Santa Barbara, he was stopped at on Muslims. But he’s trying to keep his sermons positive and his followers hopeful. “We’re American, we’re patriotic, his connecting flight in Germany we’re here, and there’s nothing you need to fear,” he said.

news Briefs LAW & DISORDER The UCSB student who attacked Isla Vista’s well-known Pastor Jon Hedges last spring was sentenced on 1/26 to three years’ probation after pleading guilty to felony assault and misdemeanor battery. Paul Gusman, 22, also must pay nearly $18,000 in restitution and complete 200 hours of community service. Gusman told the Hedgeses, “A day doesn’t go by that I don’t think of the harm I’ve done.” The pastor’s wife, Melissa Hedges, told the court she’d “had to relive this traumatic event hundreds of times.” The identity of the 69-year-old man who was found on the day after Christmas suffering a cardiac-related emergency in the County Jail dormitory has been released by the Sheriff’s Office. The deceased is Benjamin Karsokas, who lived in Isla Vista and whose name was withheld until his relatives could be notified. He had been found at about 9:50 p.m. by another inmate and died two hours later at Cottage Hospital. He had been booked into the jail on 12/22 on a failure-toappear warrant. Cam Sanchez, Santa Barbara’s former police chief, is now working for the Monterey County Parks Department as an “executive management specialist,” the Monterey County Weekly reported last month. Sanchez was Santa Barbara’s chief of police for 15 years before retiring in October 2015, shortly after suffering a concussion in a serious car accident. He’d worked for the Los Angeles Police Department for 20 years before that. Sanchez joins a parks department in disarray, the Weekly reported. Its former director left after just 17 months, and county leaders have struggled to manage personnel and funding issues. The county operates eight parks and faces illegal trail-building by mountain bikers.

CITY City of Santa Barbara water czar Joshua Haggmark estimates City Hall has spent $90 million in response to the drought. Of that, $9 million was for supplemental water purchased from other water agencies and $70 million is for construction of the refurbished desalination plant, slated to begin production sometime mid-March to early April. Another $4 million was spent on groundwater well development, and $2.6 million to build a pumping barge in Lake Cachuma. To date, City Hall has spent $931,000 on landscaping removal and replacement programs.

COUNTY Facing a packed hearing room, the Santa Barbara City College Trustees unanimously passed a resolution in support of undocumented students following President Donald Trump’s executive orders on immigration. Trustee Jonathan Abboud brought the resolution, which did not specifically name Trump but did say recent events have caused “uncertainty and emotional distress.” Two weeks ago, County Supervisor Janet Wolf led the charge to pass a motion in support of

Meisam Rafiei had already boarded his plane in Keflavík when a member of the cabin crew informed him that he would not be allowed to fly to the U.S.“It’s very surreal,” said Rice. “When I hear stories like that, it makes me very sad. This is not the America I grew up in and know.” In Santa Barbara County, 865 legal residents are from countries on the travel ban: 523 from Iran, 264 from Syria, and 78 from Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen, according to the 2015 American Community Survey. A planned visit to Santa Barbara next week by Edna Adan Ismail, the former foreign minister of Somaliland Republic and a humanitarian superstar, might no longer be possible, said organizers with Direct Relief International. Trump’s travel ban is already reverberating in Santa Barbara’s business world, as well. Gordon Morrell, executive vice president of Yardi Systems, said the multinational tech firm employs two Iranian-born Canadian citizens who live in Toronto. They are due to fly into Santa Barbara next week,“but after reading about the Somali-born Canadian citizens pulled off a flight on Monday,” said Morrell, “we are not sure it is safe for them to travel here.” For Morrell, Trump’s supposed probusiness agenda doesn’t jibe with his order. “We’ve been living in a global society, but now it seems we are going to be pulled back within our own borders,” he said. “I don’t see how this strategy enhances business growth.” Yardi, Morrell said, was started by an immigrant who arrived in the U.S. 35 years ago with a single suitcase. “Today, the company supports 650 families in the Santa

Barbara and Ventura areas, and 5,200 families worldwide.” Ken Oplinger, CEO of the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce, predicted the most immediate effects to Santa Barbara’s business sector will be a decline in tourism.“We know there are efforts in certain parts of the world (I’ve already seen several in Canada) calling for boycotting travel to the U.S.,” he said in an email. “A drop in those travelers will affect hotels, restaurants, retail, and other visitor-oriented businesses.” Visit Santa Barbara’s Kathy Janega-Dykes was more cautiously optimistic. Travel tends to be influenced more by economic realities than political rhetoric, she said. “For example, any effects would likely have more to do with the impact of President Trump’s policies on the strength of the dollar, cost of plane tickets, and price of gas.” Santa Barbara is in good shape because Governor Jerry Brown has created a supportive climate for international travel to California, she said. “Visit Santa Barbara shares U.S. Travel Association’s opinion that increased security and travel can coexist.” On Saturday at the Santa Barbara Airport, about 20 like-minded people gathered in an impromptu protest put together by Jack Ucciferri and Ethan Turpin. The travel ban is “discrimination completely antithetical to American values,” said Alex Wyndham. A group who had attended the Women’s March in Los Angeles also lent their support, as did others coming and going from the airport. “We got one ‘Disgusting!’” said Turpin of passengers’ reaction to their presence,“and about 10 ‘Thank n yous.’ ”

Bacara Resort & Spa is again for sale, four years after the 360-room hotel was purchased in 2013 by Pacific Hospitality Group from Ohana Real Estate Investors, who had picked it up in 2011 from ADCO Group for an estimated $104 million. The current listing price is not being disclosed, said Pacific chief investment officer Kory Kramer. She promised “guests and the local community can continue to expect the same esteemed level of

service at the luxury property” while the property is shopped around. “We will continue to be transparent and share information throughout the marketing process,” she said. Kernohan’s Toys, a Santa Barbara staple since 1954, has closed its doors for the final time. Gretchen Brinser, who owns the store with her husband, Greg Brinser, stated the closure was notably due to competition with Internet sales and an increasingly hard market for small businesses. She emphasized it had nothing to do with the cost of rent for the prime downtown location or conflicts with their landlords. A storewide sale preceded the store’s closure on 1/31. The largest commercial real estate sales last year were tallied by a couple of Santa Barbara property heavyweights. Hayes Commercial Group made several multimillion-dollar deals, notably the Magnolia Shopping Center in Goleta, a $29.4 million sale of 116,506 square feet; Casitas Plaza in Carpinteria, $16.8 million at 97,407 square feet; and the Cabrillo Business Park at 6750 Navigator Way in Goleta, which sold for $12.7 million at 46,430 square feet.

Introduces Drilling Ban on 48th Anniversary of S.B. Oil Spill

w

ily against a distant horizon, Santa Barbara’s newest congressmember, Salud Carbajal, announced he would introduce a bill to ban new oil leasing or drilling in federal waters off the California coast before an enthusiastic crowd of about 125 at an anti-Trump rally in Shoreline Park on January 28. The timing of Carbajal’s event coincided with the 48th anniversary of Santa Barbara’s now-legendary 1969 oil spill, when 100,000 barrels of crude escaped from Union Oil’s Platform A located off the Santa Barbara coast. Frequently credited as starting the modern environmental movement, this spill certainly gave political push to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and many area organizations—the Community Environmental Council, the Environmental Defense Center, and Get Oil Out —that have defined Santa Barbara’s environmental movement. While the administration of President Donald Trump has taken no steps toward oil development along California, Carbajal cited Trump’s executive actions to greenlight two multi-state oil pipelines bitterly fought by environmentalists, as well as his selection of former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Wayne Tillerson as Secretary of State, as cause for concern. The most recent offshore oil and gas leasing plan — just completed by the federal government—included no new leasing off the Pacific, Atlantic, or Arctic coasts.“We are looking at whole new reality [pause] show,” Linda Krop, chief counsel for the Environmental Defense Center, warned. This drew laughs from the crowd, many dressed in ocean blue shirts and a few pink “pussy hats” made famous during the hundreds of Women’s Marches organized two weeks ago. “I wish it wasn’t funny,” Krop added. Katie Davis of the Sierra Club noted that the Refugio Beach oil spill of May 2015, caused by a Plains All American pipeline rupture, ruined what had been one of the best snorkeling and diving spots along the Central Coast. She noted that 3.3 million

members of the public had commented on the federal government’s most recent plan and predicted Trump would have his hands full if he made any changes. When Michael Lyons, boardmember for Get Oil Out, reminded the crowd of the 1969 spill—which took place “two score and eight years ago”— some shouted back, “We were there!” Michael Cohen of the Santa Barbara Adventure Company, a kayak tour business, argued that offshore oil development is as bad for the economy as it is for the environment. The engine driving the $1.54 billion annual tourism machine, he said, was “a clean and green” ocean environment. For Carbajal, any bill put forth by a freshman representative in the minority party, of course, has little chance of passage. Nevertheless, it will be a rallying point for the liberal-environmental base, activated and agitated as rarely before seen. On January 21, about 7,000 Santa Barbarans walked down State Street, more than 1,000 traveled to Los Angeles, and a smattering went to D.C., all to protest Trump’s polarizing rhetoric. Two organizing groups are also attracting energized audiences: Santa Barbara’s Progressive Coalition, which plans to focus on local and statewide actions, and Indivisible Santa Barbara, a local chapter of a national group pinpointing members of Congress. On January 25, Indivisible hosted an introductory meeting and 185 people showed up. Organizers only had 100 chairs. Not everyone in Santa Barbara considers oil to be a four-letter word. They, however, were not present at Saturday’s rally. In an interview conducted two weeks before the press conference, Bob Poole, with the Western States Petroleum Association, accused anti-oil crusaders in Santa Barbara of environmental hypocrisy. Oil development in Santa Barbara County, he argued, takes place under the most stringent of safeguards and protections. Carbajal took exception to this, however, insisting that even with all of Santa Barbara’s safeguards, oil spills—like that of Plains All American Pipeline—still happen. “It would be nice if [Poole] would mention that,” Carbajal said, “but he never does.” n

County Circles Wagons in Greka Case

T

he Santa Barbara County Counsel’s

office is fighting efforts by the oil company formerly known as Greka Oil—now HVI Cat Canyon—to depose former county supervisor Salud Carbajal, now a member of Congress. Attorneys for HVI are seeking to depose Carbajal to explore whether in 2008 he lobbied state and federal environmental agencies, such as California Fish and Wildlife and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to “destroy Greka.” At that time, Greka’s North County oil production facilities were plagued by sustained problems, giving rise to multiple leaks and spills. These, in turn, sparked federal and state lawsuits against the oil company, which remain unresolved. Mary Pat Barry—an attorney with the County Counsel’s office—dismissed HVI’s deposition subpoena as a “fishing expedition,” adding the information sought is legally irrelevant. Former Greka president Andrew DeVegvar has claimed under oath that he’d

been told in 2008 by the EPA’s Robert Wise that Carbajal summoned a group of state and federal regulators to “destroy Greka.” According to Barry, the EPA’s Wise testified under oath he’d never said that. Carbajal’s press spokesperson also denied it. Barry also argued that Carbajal — as a county supervisor—lacked the authority to trigger the ensuing litigation that’s been filed against Greka, which between 2005 and 2010 amassed a record of environmental notoriety and fines still unrivaled in Santa Barbara County. Barry also claimed that Carbajal—as an “apex” official—enjoyed limited immunity from such subpoenas. Greka eventually paid the County of Santa Barbara $2 million as part of a settlement over widespread environmental transgressions. The state and federal litigation was sidetracked when it turned out state environmental regulators had lost computerized inspection records and failed to disclose this to the court. Greka sought to have the entire case tossed because of this. —Nick Welsh

early 400 people volunteered to count

homeless people throughout Santa Barbara County last Thursday as part of the county’s third biannual homeless census, and even more showed up the day of the event. Such tabulations are required by the federal Department of Health and Human Services in exchange for federal funding for homeless programs. The results of the count won’t be ready for several weeks, but in previous years, the number was about 1,450. This year’s count differed from the previous two in that teams of volunteers were dispatched to a handful of locations known to be frequented by the homeless, like Santa Barbara’s Alameda Park, in the midafternoon. In prior counts, teams of census takers were dispatched before dawn into places homeless were thought to be. This year’s questionnaire was notably briefer, as well, dispensing with lengthy interrogatories about substance abuse, sexual histories, and medical ailments. Those consenting to be questioned received fresh clean socks and a gift certificate to Starbucks. Santa Barbara, like many coastal com-

munities throughout Southern California, is struggling with what to do with people who have no place to go. On one hand, the AmeriCorps program has funded 35 part-time outreach workers countywide to community organizations seeking to connect the homeless, services, and shelter. On the flip side, the City of Santa Barbara is about to start enforcing a new ordinance that bans RVs from city streets altogether. But because that ordinance is based on the size of the vehicle, many other vehicles — Sprinters and the like — will find themselves suddenly outlawed, too. The Parks and Recreation Commission is mulling over possible permit requirements for programs that dispense food and medical care to the homeless in city parks. Parks administrators report that they receive numerous complaints associated with homeless and street people in 22 parks and that accumulated trash and rowdy behavior have become an issue. Those providing medical services have bristled at proposals to require permits, arguing that the care they provide should be encouraged, not discouraged. —Nick Welsh


MAKING SPACE: Supervisor Janet Wolf hopes to convert empty space at the abandoned juvenile hall into a 15-bed mental health facility.

eaSing THe CrunCH

Relief in Sight for County’s Chronic Shortage of Psych Beds by Nick Welsh t was one small step by one of the most

i

obscure governmental working groups in all of Santa Barbara County. It could wind up as one giant step for county residents grappling with acute mental illness. Last week, a subcommittee of the Community Corrections Partnership voted unanimously to allocate $4 million to refashion the old juvenile hall at 4500 Hollister Avenue — empty nearly 10 years — into a locked-down treatment facility for mentally ill individuals charged with crimes. In addition, the group approved a portion of the $2.3 million a year it’s estimated it will cost to run the new facility. If all goes as planned, one wing of the old juvenile hall — the one with the biggest windows — will be converted into 15 treatment rooms. This would ease the huge strain on the county’s tiny Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF), the subject of Grand Jury lamentations for more than 40 years. Demand for the scant 16 beds at the PHF — designed to handle those in danger of hurting themselves or others — has grown acute in recent years. County judges have increasingly ordered defendants deemed “incompetent to stand trial” (ISTs for short) to its care; most are not in acute mental-health crisis, and they take up space for individuals who are. Santa Barbara County, it turns out, arrests and jails a disproportionately high number of people on misdemeanor charges, said Dr. Leslie Lundt, outgoing head of the county PHF and acute-care treatment. “We arrest people for shouting in stores and peeing on the sidewalk,” she said. “Other places don’t. [Many] get sent to the PHF because that’s the only place we have where they can get treatment.” As a result, other patients in acute need are sent to mental-health facilities throughout the state, and every year, the associated costs have busted the budget for the county Department of Behavioral Wellness. This year, department chief Alice Gleghorn estimates they could spike at $6 million. The retrofitted wing of the juvenile hall could hold IST patients instead, Gleghorn hopes, and could be used to better treat mentally ill people now in County Jail. Funding will come from unspent rev-

enues Santa Barbara County was allocated as its share of the savings the California Department of Corrections gained by releasing about 35,000 inmates — nonviolent lowlevel offenders — from state prisons and back to jails in their home counties. Since the start of the “realignment,” or AB 109, program, Santa Barbara County received about $8.5 million it hasn’t yet spent. Before all the county agencies that receive a cut of AB 109 money — that’s the Community Corrections Partnership — divvied up the funds, they decided to hire private consultant James Austin to study how well they’d spent that money to date. Released last November, the Austin report found no shortage of areas for improvement: “Within the jail there are at least 1-15 inmates with significant major mental health disorders (most declared incompetent to stand trial). Due to a lack of state facilities, these people languish in the jail for extensive periods of time.” In addition, Austin stated, “Inmates with extensive mental health issues are being released to the community without an opportunity to be placed in transitional treatment beds.” Gleghorn joined forces with County Supervisor Janet Wolf and Wolf’s assistant Mary O’Gorman, a onetime probation officer with a stubborn passion when it comes to alternatives to incarceration. Together they toured the old juvenile hall with General Services staffers. They discovered no fatal flaws. The three then successfully persuaded their mental-health working group — representatives from the Sheriff’s Office, jail, courts, District Attorney, Probation, and CEO’s Office — to support the project unanimously and allocate about $4 million for it. “This would be a huge fix for us,” said Gleghorn. Details for programming at the new facility are still emerging but would include a wide range of restorative services. Unlike the PHF, it will not be required to meet hospital licensing standards. The PHF, Gleghorn explained, costs $2,000 a day per patient. The new facility, she said, would cost about $400. The full Community Corrections Partnership panel has yet to vote. Based on the unanimity of last week’s vote, Gleghorn and n Wolf expect it should pass.

jackson Backs immigrant Protection Bills

S

tate Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson

expressed support for three bills wending their way through the Legislature designed to resist President Donald Trump’s executive order enlisting state and local police agencies into enforcing federal immigration laws. One bill, authored by Kevin de LeÓn (D-San Diego)would bar the use of state or local resources to enforce federal immigration laws absent a federal warrant. Jackson took exception to Trump’s threat to withhold federal funds from “sanctuary cities,” citing a recent study that claimed sanctuary cities have significantly lower crime rates than their counterparts. “Everybody wants to be safer. We all want to be safe,” she said. “But the Trump approach will do just the opposite.” By enforcing immigration laws, she said, local officers risk alienating immigrant communities upon whom they rely for information. Jackson also supported a bill that would set aside funds — the amount to be determined — to provide legal assistance to immigrants facing deportation. “That’s called due process,” Jackson stated. Lastly, she expressed support for a bill that would deny federal agencies access to any information

Probation Chief Placed on administrative leave

S

anta Barbara County

Probation Chief Lupe Rabago was placed on administrative leave Monday following a months-long performance review. The disciplinary action comes after criminal justice advocates calling for alternative sentencing complained Rabago appeared inattentive to such efforts. Santa Barbara Superior Court CEO Darrel Parker, who has overseen the process, said the complaints against Rabago were not criminal in nature, but he declined to comment on specific reasons for the temporary removal. “This has really been an evaluation of the chief ’s performance,” he said. The court “recently received a report that precipitated this action” and “felt it was necessary to take administrative action at this point.” Parker explained Santa Barbara County is somewhat unique in that the judges hold the hiring and firing authority over the probation chief rather than the Board of Supervisors. Parker said he has kept county officials apprised of the process. “This should not be a surprise to the county,” he said. Parker said

He had recently served as the interim chief in San Diego after serving as number two there for three years. Multiple county sources here confirmed the disciplinary action was a result of his general lack of administrative effectiveness. Rabago could not be reached for comment. In the meantime, former probation chief Beverly Taylor will serve as acting probation chief. —Kelsey Brugger

SQUINTING FOR SILVER LININGS: With

uncharacteristic modesty and lack of fanfare, Donald Trump has given the world a new law of physics: Time can fly by even if you’re not having fun. Keeping up with Trump during his first two weeks in office has been like using a shot glass to catch a tidal wave. Bottom line? Trump has proved all the optimist-denialists violently wrong. By doing exactly as promised, he’s turned out far worse than imagined. Go figure. That being said, there’s some solace to be had in his nomination of Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, but only for those with a stomach for bitter irony. In sharp contrast to the demolition-derby temper-tantrum antics of his first 10 days, Trump’s nomination of Gorsuch to fill the vacancy on Justice Antonin Scalia appears sublimely nuanced, shrewd, and crafted to strategic perfection. By all accounts, Gorsuch is brilliant, personally likable, and extremely qualified. He is also impeccably conservative and will inflict serious damage. Worse yet, his is a great collaborative presence and will effectively move the majority to the right. By nominating Gorsuch, Trump has put Democrats in a no-win box. If they oppose him — and how can they not after Republicans let Scalia’s seat sit empty 12 months rather than give Obama’s

eminently qualified nominee Merrick Garland even the courtesy of a hearing? — they

will appear weak and whiny, and they will lose. If they don’t go to war, they will look even weaker and more pathetic. Either way, they lose.

Barking at Shadows

Gorsuch, son of Ronald Reagan’s Environmental Protection Agency administrator Anne Gorsuch Burford, is already touted as the second coming of Antonin Scalia — “Scalia 2.0” according to some headlines. While

Gorsuch lacks Scalia’s entertaining genius for

seething vituperation and condescending invective, he and Scalia apparently drank from the same pitcher of Originalist constitutional Kool-Aid. That defect, I am per-

versely predicting, will save the bacon of the 400 or so cities nationwide that could find themselves in Trump’s crosshairs for refusing — as so-called sanctuary cities — to enforce federal immigration law. For those otherwise distracted by Trump’s executive order making the world a more dangerous place by clamping down on refugees from seven troubled nations — the Libertarian-minded Cato Institute conducted cost-risk analysis of this order and concluded that the risk of an American citizen being killed on American soil by terrorist refugees from any country is one in 3.6 billion a year — he also issued another order authorizing

local law enforcement agencies to enforce federal immigration law.

This is a big deal.

State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson

thinks this is a very bad idea and cited a new study just released by a researcher at UC San Diego purporting to show that the crime rate in sanctuary cities is significantly lower

than their non-sanctified counterparts. More

immediately persuasive, I think, are the concerns I hear from frontline cops. They say it does them no good at all if half the population regards them as La Migra, ready to send them or their loved ones back home. What they predict are more people fleeing cops, more ensuing car chases, more resisting arrest, more fights, more use of force, more Tasers, more shootings. You can do the math yourself. According to the U.S. Census, immigrants make up roughly one-fourth of the county’s total population. Of the 108,080 immigrants living here as of 2015, nearly 68,000 were non-citizens. Of those, nearly 40,000 were undocumented. While Santa Barbara Police Chief Lori Luhnow has taken pains to assure people her officers will not be enforcing federal immigration laws, City Hall has taken equal pains to not declare itself a sanctuary city for fear of bringing the wrath of Trump gratuitously upon their heads. Even Councilmember Cathy Murillo — the vocal lefty populist now semi-subliminally running for mayor on the anti-Trump ticket — has been uncharacteristically subdued about copping an “I’m Spartacus” posture of municipal solidarity with the 400 cities that risk losing $1.2 billion as punishment for the sanctuary they offer. I get discretion being the better part of valor, particularly when it comes to waging war with 8,000-pound gorillas like the Trump White House. But the practical impact of Trump’s executive order could well be that the feds declare Santa Barbara to be a

sanctuary city no matter how low-in-the-boat city officials would like to remain. Some cities, such as San Francisco, have just sued Trump over this. Their legal arguments rely on two important Supreme Court rulings, one of which was written by Scalia — whose shoes Trump hopes Gorsuch will snugly fill — and the other heartily endorsed by Scalia. The first dates back to 1997, when Scalia wrote the majority opinion striking down the constitutionality of a federal gun-control law. The heart of that case involved a requirement that states conduct background checks on people purchasing guns. Scalia found it constitutionally intolerable that the feds would presume to conscript sovereign state governments and make them enforce federal laws. The second precedent is more recent and involves the Affordable Care Act, now on Trump’s hack-mutilate-fold-spindle chopping block. Initially, the Obama administration sought to deploy both carrot and stick in getting recalcitrant state governments to participate in the program. Obamacare vastly expanded the universe of low-income people who could qualify for Medicaid, but states needed to take the affirmative step of signing these people up. For states that refused, Obama proposed cutting off certain federal funds.With Scalia’s vote, that too was deemed unconstitutional. That’s the splinter of a silver lining I see in this particular storm cloud. If you squint real hard, it might not poke you in the eye.

Drowning in New Construction

A

fter five years of drought, with Lake Cachuma at record low levels, the local water districts should invoke their emergency powers and immediately suspend all construction permits, including that of the luxury hotel complex in Montecito, until the drought is over. Why should the responsible citizens of Santa Barbara and Montecito limit their water usage only to have their water savings wasted by a luxury hotel and other new construction projects? It makes no sense, and it is fundamentally unfair. Moreover, these construction projects only put the uniquely beautiful Santa BarbaraMontecito coastline on the irreversible path of becoming the next overbuilt, traffic-snarled, polluted L.A. These construction proponents should move back to L.A. and overbuild to their hearts’ content and please leave Santa Barbara and Montecito alone.

Unreliable Oil

R

egarding the idea of more oil drilling and development to boost county revenue [independent .com/twopeas], the county budget director confirmed to me that revenue from oil companies makes up less than one percent of the county budget. Oil companies are like an expensive and undesirable customer. A boom-and-bust industry with unreliable property-tax revenue, they cost taxpayers by increasing road maintenance, administration, emergency services, pollution abatement, etc. Even collecting taxes is expensive as they contest them. Kern County, with 80 percent of oil production in the state, just had to slash their 2016/17 county budget by $545 million and lay off many people. Balancing the county budget is better done by increasing revenues from larger and more reliable sources and/or cutting costs — and by protecting our water and environment for the long-term. —Katie Davis, Goleta

think every one of us can relate to immigrants. So many of us have ancestors, family members, and friends who came from other countries to settle here in America. So much endless work has been put into all the bridges that America has made so we could connect, communicate, travel, trade, and do business with other countries. To put a wall up is beyond offensive, and it is an insult to all of us who believe in love for all humankind. It is arrogant. The immigrants in America have worked their butts off doing the jobs than many people passed by. They are the backbone of this country. And no wall can deny that fact. This wall does not represent anything that is close to “great.”

After all those careers, jobs, businesses owned, she now finds herself bored? Rather than volunteer, become a mentor to our youth, or take art classes, she decides to take a minimum-wage job from, most likely, a college kid, single mother, or underemployed person so she will not be bored. I’m happy that she is no longer bored; however, I cannot help but think she is like a lot of people in this town who do not have to struggle to survive. Clearly, she has enough income to live and not have to work any longer. She worked hard for that privilege, and she deserves it. I just wish that she had chosen a more charitable way to cure her boredom.

Wilton Allen Doane 1921-2017

Dr. Doane was born in Mansfield Pennsylvania to a family of doctors-His father, his uncle, and his two brothers. After attending the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, he served in WWII as a lieutenant in the Navy. He interned and did his surgical residency at the Pennsylvania Hospital, the first hospital established in the United States and on whose Board of Directors Benjamin Franklin served. While there, Dr. Doane worked with Dr. John Gibbon, who was one of the innovators of the first heart-lung machine in the country. In 1951, he and his wife Carol moved to Boston where he had been awarded a Fellowship at the Lahey Clinic in thoracic surgery. When war was declared in Korea he was drafted back into the Navy and served on the aircraft carrier Essex for the duration. Dr. Doane had always wanted to join a multi-specialty medical group. He believed that was the best way to practice medicine, where specialists in every medical discipline could consult with one another in the diagnosis and treatment of patients most effectively. In 1956 he joined the Santa Barbara Medical Clinic, soon became Chairman of the Board of Trustees, helped develop a large multi-specialty organization, and, with legal advice, worked to form a medical foundation, in order to better serve Santa Barbara and environs. He served two terms as Chairman of the Board of the Santa Barbara Medical Foundation Clinic, and worked towards the merger with the Sansum Clinic. He served as Chairman and a member of that Board of Directors for many years. Dr. Doane was certified by the American Board of Surgery in 1952 and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery in 1959. His reputation as a gifted surgeon is widely known, but he was also an innovator and a leader in medical matters nationally. He helped design the concept of pre-paid medical insurance in an effort to counter federal government single-pay insurance. He was national President of the American Group Practice Association and often went to Washington, D.C. to lobby for that cause. Dr. Doane was the author of many important scientific papers published in medical journals. He was a member of the following professional organizations: The American Medical Association, California Medical Association, Santa Barbara County Medical Association, American College of Surgeons, Pacific Coast Surgical Association, and the Western Thoracic Surgical Association. Other national and local Boards on which he served include Direct Relief, the American Mutual Fund(Capital Group), National Childhood Cancer Foundation, California Blue Cross Medical Policy Committee, Hope Ranch Board of Directors, 18

Montecito Retirement Association, and Senior Warden of All Saints By-the-Sea Episcopal Church. During all the years of his busy career he never lost the urge to travel to exotic areas. He and his wife Carol camped on the banks of the Nile River, drove from Teheran to Shiraz to Persepolis in southern Iran, were driven up the Indus River from Peshawar Pakistan to Gilgit, to the Chinese border in the Karakorum Himalaya, and in 1968 they went to Kabul Afghanistan to work for Care Medico. Dr. Doane is survived by his wife Carol, his three children Richard Doane, Nancy Doane Babbott(David Babbott) and John Doane(Kerry Doane), and ten grandchidren- David Babbott-Klein, John Babbott, Ben Skye-Babbott, Wilton Stewart, Elizabeth Stewart, Keenan Doane, Jameson Doane, Jed Doane, Cheney Doane, and Kim Doane, one great-grandchild Zilpha Babbott-Klein, and two grand daughters-in-law Libby Babbott-Klein and Ariana Skye-Babbott. He was predeceased by his daughter Kimberly Doane Stewart. As busy as he was, he found time to play his beloved trumpet, to learn how to sculpt, to enjoy tennis, skiing, and hiking at the family cabin in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. But his family came first! They all not only adored him but respected him. His patients and his co-workers loved and admired his gentle compassion, as well as his skill as a surgeon. He was a remarkable man, a happy man, a noble man - and he had a remarkable life. A Celebration of his life will be held Saturday February 11 at 2 p.m. at All Saints By-the Sea Episcopal Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Direct Relief or the Sansum Clinic.

Patricia Ann DeWitts 11/21/39-12/28/16

Long-time Santa Barbara resident Patricia Ann DeWitts passed away December 28, 2016 at Sanctuary at Fraser rest home in Michigan. Patricia was born November 21, 1939, to Henry and Ellen Hennessy of Birmingham, MI. She grew up in Michigan and spent several years in Japan as a child in the aftermath of WWII. As the oldest of seven children, Patricia was accustomed to responsibility. She was the first and only person in her family to attend college, putting herself through the Jesuit University of Detroit where she excelled and earned the Howard Walsh Memorial Award. She had a vast knowledge of literature and a gift for creative writing. After graduation she moved to Gstaad, Switzerland to teach English and History at L’Institut Montesano. In Gstaad she met her husband, Jim Briscoe of Santa Barbara, and moved to Santa Barbara in 1965. She remarried in 1973, to tennis professional Jerry DeWitts.

FEbruary 2, 2017

Patricia raised her children locally and eventually resumed teaching. When she was diagnosed with Parkinsonism in 2003, she retired and returned to Michigan. She was a brave and unapologetic spirit who chose a colorful life and never lost her sharp wit. She is survived by her daughter Julia Briscoe, son John DeWitts (Tia), and granddaughter Brooke Burney.

Robert Laselle Thornburgh 04/03/24-10/28/16

Robert Laselle Thornburgh was born to Emily (Haines) and Laselle Thornburgh on April 3, 1924 at Saint Francis Hospital in Santa Barbara. Bob died on Oct 28, 2016 following a brief illness related to old age. He was 92. His local roots stretch back 5 generations, and now forward three. He went to Roosevelt and Jefferson schools before joining Laguna Blanca’s first class, and later graduating from Santa Barbara High School and UCSB when it was still on the Riviera. He and his brother spent much of their youth roaming the lemon and avocado orchards of the family ranch at the corner of Toro Canyon & East Valley. His first year at UC Berkeley was cut short with the onset of WWII. He volunteered for the Army Air Corps, ultimately becoming a navigator and radar operator on the B-29. Though his duffle bag had been shipped to the Pacific, the war ended before he was sent overseas. He flew many training missions and loved telling the story of getting Hemingway to autograph a dollar bill sitting at La Floridita in Havana. In 1946, he married Genevieve Manset, on whom he first set eyes at SBHS soon after she had emigrated from France. A year later, the first of their four daughters, Yvonne, was born. They moved to Stanford, where Bob attended law school and their second daughter, Suzanne, arrived. He remembered warmly their time there, living in family student housing and serving on the Law Review with future Justices O’Conner and Rehnquist. The young Thornburgh family then returned to Santa Barbara, making their home in a small redwood board-and-batten cottage on Padaro Lane, which ended up serving as the family nucleus for nearly 70 years. Annette was born in 1953 and Mimi in 1961. Bob joined his father’s firm Griffith and Thornburgh, specializing in tax and estate law. He loved the intellectual challenges and stimulation despite never enjoying the actual courtroom. Bob sat as counsel on the Cottage Hospital board for many years, as well as for Crocker Bank. The younger attorneys still tell of his reserved but insightful and generous leadership. He was always straight to the point. He was a long time member of The Valley Club, forfeiting his membership upon retirement wanting more fly-fishing than golf. No longer working down-

town, he also gave up his spot at the Santa Barbara Club, but never did give up his “meetings” at Joe’s Café, always a favorite haunt well into his last years. His interests and knowledge spread wide and deep. He was a meticulously natural student no matter what hobby or avocation, delving deeply into detail. He was a technical bridge player, found peculiar joy in doing his own tax returns, had a studied fascination with English royal lineage and thrived on the weekly argumentative McLaughlin Group. A master in the darkroom and behind the lens, he taught his daughters to love photography, and you’d often find him hiding behind a camera documenting his and Genny’s rather raucous parties. Later in life, he mastered the computer and Photoshop to organize his photo collection. He kept an eclectic library of music and most days you could hear it pouring out of his study, from Benny Goodman and Al Jolson to the Beatles and Willie Nelson. The opera ‘Carmen’ was a standard. He read broadly, and every night in bed before falling asleep. However, his real passion was along any body of water with fishing rod in hand. In ’65 they bought a cabin in Mammoth, where the extended family continues to commune. With retirement, Bob and Genny spent the entire six months of trout season there every year. Bob was instrumental in getting Hot Creek designated catch-andrelease. Those long days on that river casting his home-tied flies, were the moments Bob truly felt at ease. He remained a penetrating, curious mind until his final few weeks. He looked inward deeply and teared up easily. He had a clear sense of ethics. He was analytical with self and with others. At the dinner table, with hard blues Bessie Smith blaring or crooning Bing, a couple gin martinis under belt, he’d throw out any political controversy, or explain his take on Proust, or perhaps quote Shakespeare with a razor sharp stare: “the fault lies not in the stars, but in thyself...” The Socratic Method was his method, often to the chagrin of his children and grandchildren, not to mention unsuspecting guests. Other times he would lean back with look of warm bemusement admiring his off offspring and closest friends. Perhaps his biggest legacy was the wonderful home he and Genny provided as the central gathering place for five generations of family and a myriad of friends. A home with doors always open and welcoming. A home where you would not want for food or drink. A home that flowed seamlessly with the beach and sea beyond. Bob was predeceased by his beloved wife of 68 years Genevieve Manset Thornburgh, brother Richard Haines Thornburgh and sister Sally Moore Thornburgh. He is survived by his daughters: Yvonne Neumann (Andy), Suzy Blossom, Anny Annable (John) & Mimi Sheehan (Tom); grandchildren: Emilie Neumann (Sameer Pandya), Mya Thornburgh (Michel Brewer), Tarek Neumann, Chris Blossom, Chase Blossom, Abby Blossom & Genny Rose Annable; great-grandsons Ravi & Ishan Pandya; cousin Michael Haines and many nieces and nephews. We send a sincere thank you to the exceptional people who helped take care of Bob through his final months. He became fond of each of you in dif different ways, and as a generous audience he got to tell and retell his life’s tales, for

which we are deeply grateful. He was quick to tell his daughters and caregivers that being old and infirm did not preclude him from deciding what was best for himself. We each learned to respect this in our own ways. As a reminder he would recite “Invictus” from memory, as he did the day prior to his death. “…I thank whatever gods may be, for my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud… And yet the menace of the years finds and shall find me unafraid… I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul.” He asked that he be allowed to die in his own bed. We were able to honor that simple request. “Now cracks a noble heart. Good night sweet prince; and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest…” Please join us in celebration of Bob’s life on Sat Feb 18. For details contact one of his daughters.

Historic Window Restoration!

1955-2017

A Powerful Voice and Advocate

I

n 1983, Corey Dubin was in the newsroom at KPFK-Los Angeles when a story came over the wire about people with hemophilia who had taken life-saving blood-clotting drugs. It was likely they were contaminated with what was soon to be known as the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This was a shattering story for Corey, who had grown up with the painful, life-protracted medical condition. At the time, he was director of News and Public Affairs at KPFK-Pacifica Radio, where he reported extensively on the Pacific Rim, the Caribbean, Indigenous America, and the Nation States of South, Central, and North America. Now, this “mysterious,” untreatable disease—warned about in the early 1980s by the courageous Dr. Don Francis of the Centers for Disease Control and which had spawned callous discrimination against gay, Haitian, and druginjecting communities—had infected the vast majority of those with hemophilia, including himself. Corey had been an advocate for the hemophilia community since his teenage years. Influenced by his father’s strong example of medical advocacy, he’d established peer-led support groups and a big brother program with the Hemophilia Foundation of Southern California in Los Angeles, his home since his birth on March 3, 1955. Liberation from trauma, including medical trauma, was a political act, Corey believed, a manifestation of social justice to positively transform society. This call to service drew Corey to independent broadcasting. He began his career at KCSB-FM, located at the University of California, Santa Barbara, as student radio journalist. His activism coalesced into managing news and analysis, and he became the station’s public affairs director and president of the UC Radio Network. During those early years, he met the Chumash elders and community, which nurtured a lifelong involvement with indigenous politics and peoples. He reported extensively from the 1978 Humqaq Occupation, the Chumash nation occupation of the sacred site of Point Conception to protest development plans by a liquefied gas company. Graduation led to freelance journalism and Pacifica Radio at a time when foreign policy was guided by the “hot wars” of Reagan’s Cold War. Corey coproduced Covert Action, which documented the CIA’s destabilizing efforts at home and abroad. He coordinated breaking stories on the Iran-Contra scandal, focused on the Reagan administration’s sale of arms to Iran — embargoed since President Jimmy Carter’s time —to fund Contra forces in Nicaragua trying to topple the elected Sandinista government. Corey went on to become communications coordinator of the Big Mountain Legal Defense/Offense Committee, which fought the U.S. government’s forced relocation of the Dineh people onto uraniumcontaminated land. He joined The Other Americas Radio as a senior producer, and under the auspices of Coyote Radio Productions, he produced weekly radio programs up until his death, for KCSB-FM and KPFKFM, including Latin American Journal and American Indian Airwaves. When the contaminated clotting factor story broke in 1983, AIDS was a puzzling syndrome with no treatment; the stigma that arose around the deadly disease lashed the hemophilia community, as well. Its members responded with an organized activist and policy movement. By the 1990s, Corey was appointed to the California Community Planning Working

Group, which authored the state’s AIDS education and prevention plans. They pushed the Ryan White Title II Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency Act, which provided federal grants to states to improve the quality and accessibility of treatment and care for all people living with HIV. In 1992, Corey became the first end-user of the nation’s blood supply to sit on the Blood Products Advisory Committee at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Committee of Ten Thousand —which Corey had helped form to advocate for the international hemophilia community and was named for the 10,000 people with hemophilia who had contracted HIV and other viruses — pressed the FDA to ensure the safety of blood products. Corey acquired an impressive expertise in the science of AIDS as well as an extraordinary ability to work with congressional Democrats and Republicans, who for the first time came to agreements on how to handle the AIDS crisis in the United States and abroad. Corey was also part of a class-action suit filed in 1996 against four global pharmaceutical companies Baxter, Bayer, Alpha, and Armour. The settlement reached was far less than what they sought, so they joined with groups such as the Institute of Science and the National Academy of Sciences to coauthor the Ricky Ray Act to provide compassionate payments to those with HIV from contaminated blood products. Corey felt a deep rage from the devastating experience of Big Pharma’s unconscionable acts.Yet he never let it eclipse his love and vision for humankind and the multiple ways that life could otherwise be lived. Throughout his work, Corey gave a voice to the voiceless. He was enamored of the technical beauty and art of radio as much as he was committed to tirelessly training and mentoring generations of community radio programmers. Whether incisively interviewing guests or facilitating a heated on-air debate, he had a natural knack for instant human connection, and he had a breathtaking intellectual command of politics both near and far. Corey Dubin is survived by longtime and loving friends, activist colleagues, radio coworkers, and radio listeners. He leaves his loving wife of 26 years, Faviana “Phoebe” Hirsch-Dubin; his children, Kaile Laubua Acuna-Dubin, Checole Acuna, and Sasheen Acuna; 12 grandchildren; and his sister, Randi Dubin King. Together we honor Corey’s vast caring soul and his tireless life’s work of service to communities throughout the world.

ust like in the title of the Oscar-nominated song from La La Land, Santa Barbara is a “City of Stars” this week as the 32nd Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival is officially underway, with all manner of film folk — from actors to directors to producers to writers to fans—here to talk, listen, learn, and celebrate the world of cinema. In this issue are myriad stories that feature the who, what, and why of the festival, including our Meet the Makers magazine, which comprises interviews with more than 50 filmmakers whose work is being shown; “Must-See Films” recommended by Indy film critic Josef Woodard; a look behind the making of the virtual-realitydesigned screen titles; a complete festival schedule of films and events; and an interview with SAG award winner and Oscar contender Emma Stone.

SBIFF

is officially

underway

After two weeks of cinematic immersion, the festival closes with the world premiere of Their Finest on Saturday, February 11, at the Arlington Theatre. Directed by Lone Scherfig, the romantic comedy is about a film production company tasked with boosting British morale during the Blitz by making a patriotic film on the Miracle of Dunkirk. The picture is based on the 2009 novel Their Finest Hour and a Half and features an all-star cast including Bill Nighy, Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Jack Huston, and Richard E. Grant. Whether you submerge yourself in all the festival has to offer or only take in a few events, there’s no doubt that from now until February 11, the City of Santa Barbara will be shining brightly. — Michelle Drown

azzlingly delightful and dizzyingly dexterous in La La Land, Emma Stone wowed audiences with her combined actingdancing-singing abilities as Mia, an aspiring actor in L.A. given to thrilling outbursts of song and dance when love sparks fly between her and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling). For their incredible skills, Stone and Gosling will be the recipients of this year’s SBIFF Outstanding Performers of the Year Award. I spoke with Stone about La La Land, her character Mia, and what’s ahead. Congrats on the SBIFF Outstanding Performer by Richie DeMaRia of the Year Award and the recent SAG honor. How does it feel, and did you expect all this praise? Oh god, of course not. It’s so exciting for all of us to be part of something so special, and such an amazing thing to be part of a movie that people seem to be responding to in such a positive way. It’s pretty rare. None of this was an expected outcome by any means. The movie was so well-coordinated. What was the creation process like? Was it very collaborative? It was. Damien [Chazelle] was so open to collaboration from day one. It took me a while to really get emotionally onboard, so he was patient with that process and was listening to our ideas about character development and how it all would come together. He had such a vision on how to make this kind of thing cohesive. … It was so technical; it would have to be specific in so many ways and yet so natural, human, and alive in other ways. We were always trying to balance those two tones, and that was the most interesting thing to calibrate. Your character Mia endures a lot of rejection. Could you relate to that side of her, and how have you dealt with rejection? I relate to Mia in many, many ways. I had about three years of very similar auditioning experiences when I first moved to L.A. I was 15 and trying out as a high schooler, and there’s a huge life shift when you’re in your

n 2017 , the S.B. International Film Festival (SBIFF) is truly living up to its name. Ask SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling (pictured), who oversees the festival’s selections: Though every year boasts an excitingly and boldly diverse selection, the inclusion of international filmmakers and the tough subjects they tackle means more now than it has in a long time. Durling is proud of the festival’s commitment to international film. With 50 different countries represented, the worldwide aspect feels especially significant in an era when America’s international ties are potentially being strained, or walled off altogether. “To paraphrase [SBIFF Montecito Award winner] Isabelle Huppert from her Golden Globes acceptance speech, there’s no border, no frontiers, no walls in art,” Durling said.“There’s a sense of community— community it’s broadening our perspective of the world and of issues, and we’re doing it in a community environment. The opening-night film, Charged, he said, is “a pretty powerCharged ful statement about the American dream and immigrants. Eduardo [Garcia] is the son of an immigrant, and he’s putting his life back together after that life-altering accident … It’s a great way to start the film festival with the story of the son of an immigrant, a true American dream story,” he said. “It’s one of the most uplifting and exciting true stories I know.” Many of this year’s documentaries, as well, focus on some of the most pressing social justice issues of our time; there will be a documentary shorts session that deals with immigrant and refugee themes. “We are very focused on the way that, after the election, there’s a lot of uncertainty and a lot of issues being raised. We felt that the festival needed to address some of those issues, to help people find answers or find some sort of relief,” Durling said. “It’s our duty to address these issues that are concerning people right now.” Of course the film festival is not just about addressing global crises but also about the entertainers from around the world who bring us together (and help distract us) in the cinema. Durling is especially thrilled about some of this year’s honorees. “I’ve wanted to honor Denzel

He is perhaps most excited about Huppert. “I grew up with international cinema, and we are an international festival, so to have somebody of her caliber is perfect.” Durling is also joyed to honor English actors Naomie Harris and Dev Patel for their work in Moonlight and Lion, respectively, plus S.B. area resident Jeff Bridges for his work in Hell or High Water. Nothing makes Durling prouder, though, than how inclusive and expansive the SBIFF’s education programs are. “The educational programs are the most rewarding thing we do. It’s the heartbeat of the festival,” he said. Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies will see 4,200 kids coming from across the county, while the festival’s Film Studies Program, for blossoming student filmmakers and film theorists, now includes 30 students from across the U.S., with 20 being flown in from out of state. “We made a big effort to have students come in from areas that don’t have access to film festivals, so it’s a dream come true,” Durling said. “It’s a great opportunity for them, and I can’t wait to meet them to see their expressions as they get to experience ★ the film fest.”

in Virtual reality John Oliver and Paul Mathieu Create 3D Film Lead-ins for SBiFF

S

by Keith hamm

tepping deliberately into the creative rabbit hole of virtual reality, artist John Oliver’s latest endeavor brings three-dimensional brushstrokes to the big screen. Equipped with a Tilt Brush headset and a remote control palette and brush, Oliver has teamed up with Paul Mathieu at West Beach Films to create leadin promotional pieces for daily screenings at this year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival. “You don’t really get it until you put on the headset — then, it’s, ‘Holy [crap]!’” Oliver said from his art studio, which is tucked away on a coastal bluff at a long-abandoned flower farm. Standing in the center of the room with the open space in front of him as a canvas, Oliver is able to intricately paint a dragon head, for example, while walking around, ducking under, and rotating the piece as he goes, his work captured remotely and displayed on the computer screen against the wall. For an analogy that’s not entirely accurate but close, imagine a sculptor carving a bust from a floating, moveable block of marble. For the festival trailers, Oliver and Mathieu filmed at the Arlington, Lobero, Riviera, and Metro 4 theaters. “Getting the VR [virtual reality] technology integrated

with live action was a really cool experiment for us,” Mathieu said.“I feel that VR is coming on in a heavy way. What we’ve done is offer just a taste of the technology, and hopefully the audience will like it.” Looking ahead, Oliver sees Tilt Brush as a teaching tool, a boon to gaming, and the foundation of a new realm in storytelling. “I got into film and video because it’s a place where several art forms reside,” said Oliver, who’s also a multimedia technician, video producer, and archivist at Skate One, the Goleta headquarters of Powell-Peralta skateboards. “Now, film and video are creative aspects in this new epicenter of all things art.” ★

emma stone cont'd from p. 21 in your late twenties, from being a wide-eyed teenager who can’t even really conceptualize failure in that moment to someone like Mia. She lives with and sits with these feelings of failure on a daily basis; that feeling is very present for her. She has more maturity than I had at 15 . … It’s just sort of the ups and downs of an industry like this, or of just making creative projects. Some turn out, some don’t, some can be a bit soul-crushing to be creating, and there’s an ever-evolving relationship to things like rejection or failure.

WELCOME TO THE MATRIX: Artist John Oliver trips out on Tilt Brush technology.

Both Birdman and La La Land are cinema about cinema. Is there a special appeal to you for these movies about movies? I definitely do see that. It’s definitely connected, but it didn’t feel that way to me at the time. With Birdman, I was drawn to working with Alejandro [Iñárritu] and sort of the darkness of that comedy and the ambition of that way of shooting it, and what was happening with my character in that movie. Then with Damien’s, the draws were pretty obvious. I hadn’t even associated that connection until I was already working on La La Land, and thought,“How interesting.” So it was totally different draws, and that’s kind of a happy accident.

Emma Stone

Where do you see room for artistic growth in the coming years? Where do you hope to head artistically? There’s so much room for growth — hopefully nothing but room for growth. I always want to be getting more conscious and letting more stuff go within me personally. I hope there’s nowhere to go but growing. It’s hard to know the specifics of what it is ultimately that I want to be doing forever, but that’s all I can really think about: getting more focused, working harder, and hopefully growing more as an actor and a human being.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling will receive the Outstanding Performers of the Year Award on Friday, February 3, 8 p.m., at the Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.). See sbiff.org.

Every 40 Years

Every 40 Years: Filmmaker Eric Goldrich grew up hearing rumors that his dad once played in a rock band, so he and co-director Benjamin Friedberg investigate the legend through this feature-length documentary. They reveal the flash-in-the-pan, Billboard Top 40 phenomenon that was Gunhill Road, how the music industry thwarted the band’s aspirations, and then why some of the members (including Santa Barbara’s Glenn Leopold) decided to dust off their guitars and do it again. “Regardless of how ‘big’ they did or didn’t get, the fact that they opened (and closed) for some of the most legendary acts of our time still blows my mind,” said Goldrich. “As cool or as nerdy as my dad was growing up, his musical story certainly made him even cooler.” Lynn Montgomery’s Don’t Sell My Guitars, about a country musician’s final request to his wife, will screen prior to this film.

Gaviota: The End of Southern California: Filmmakers Shaw Leonard and Tamlorn Chase present this homegrown, five-years-in-the-making nature documentary about the Gaviota Coast, whose soul-stirring beauty and vast biodiversity also attract real estate developers and oil extractors. “Our dream with this

film is to draw international attention to the Gaviota Coast, one of the world’s most threatened biodiversity hot spots,” they explained.“It focuses on the ecology of the coast, not the politics. We wanted to make a film that would inspire people to fall in love with this coast and want to protect it for future generations.” Three shorts will screen before the film: Coastal Guardians by Andrew Han, about the proposed Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary; Devereux Slough, by frequent fest contributor Michael Love, about the serene, bird-filled estuary near UCSB; and Losing Ground, by Trevor Lestak, about the Tautrim family’s fight to keep Gaviota ranches intact. Lives Well Lived: We’ve all heard the phrase “Respect your elders,” yet how often do we have the chance to ask, and listen, to our grandparents’ wisdom? Filmmaker Sky Bergman does so by acquiring a cumulative 3,000 years of life experience to show that growing old doesn’t mean growing silent. “The most valuable lesson of the film is that each of the people that were interviewed overcame great life challenges yet have developed a positive way of looking at life,” said Bergman. The Gateway Bug

The Gateway Bug: Insects are one of the most sustainable and proteinpacked sources of food on the planet. But can a handful of innovators, including a team of grad students from UCSB, convince the American public that bugs are the right choice? This documentary by Johanna B. Kelly and Cameron Marshad finds out.“When one in eight Americans lack a secure supply of food and one billion go hungry worldwide, the future of eating as we know it now is simply impossible,” said Kelly. Added Marshad, “It’s an option we cannot afford to stick our noses up at. It’s largely an issue of stigma. So it will take lots of education starting at younger ages to nurture future generations of bug eaters. They’re quite tasty.”


Seraphonium Live! Monte Schulz, author and son of Peanuts! creator Charles Schulz, tried his hand at songwriting to create a debut album called Seraphonium. He enlisted some of the region’s top musicians for a performance of the multi-genre piece at the Marjorie Luke Theatre, and director Byl Carruthers captured the evening for all to see.

Short DocS

The highlight to this program is certainly Casey McGarry’s The Boatmaker, about the quarter century that Sycamore Canyon resident architect Ken Minor took to construct his very own wooden sailboat. McGarry captures all of the emotion and drama as Morning Song winds to its completion and sets sails from the Santa Bar- The Boatmaker bara Harbor. McGarry heard about the project from his friend Robert Allan, and the two went out for breakfast with Minor soon before the boat was finished. “Afterward, we got in our cars, drove up to see the boat, and I began shooting the film that day and have been making it ever since,” said McGarry. “That was 11½ months ago.” Also showing in this screening are The Beelievers, Leah Bleich’s look at S.B.’s beekeeping community; Alexandra Vasquez’s The 11, about the diverse group of folks who ride MTD’s Line 11 bus; Lead End, in which Amanda Jack and Moises Jinho look at how lead poisoning affects California condor recovery; Lost Crops by Chris Jenkins, about a doctor, botanist, and humanitarian seeking sustainable superfoods; and Planted, Olivia Lucero’s television-episode-like short about the culture of veganism in Santa Barbara. Lost Crops

Short narratIvES Of the films that we were able to prescreen, the highlight of this bunch was certainly Twinsburg, a funny and touching film about two twins (director Joe Garrity and his real-life twin, Phil) who attend the annual twin-bash in Ohio. But they’re growing apart in their older age — one really wants to be there, the other not so much — causing the siblings’ relationship to be tested as tensions rise. Also screening is The Hostage, by Bryce Paul, a comedy featuring two bumbling kidnappers who must deal with the man they’ve kidnapped; The Financial Teller, Mike Winger’s comedy about a bank who calls in a fortune teller to help with financial planning; Last Blind Date, by Brent Florence, in which could-be lovers drop the baloney and get brutally honest; Someone’s Hero, a dramatic, uplifting story by Amalie Lintrup about a young man who’s struggling to be a hero and make his family proud; One Shot, by Ryan Slattery, about a gun-toting veteran on a mission that takes an unexpected twist; Marcus Mizelle’s My Marilyn, about an obsessed actress struggling with delusions of grandeur in Hollywood; and Working Class Hero, by Jake Martin, about two desk-bound workers who think their colleague may be the legendary “Superior Man.” ★

Step outside to explore our backyard and you’ll see we are no ordinary museum. We let people climb, jump, hike, run, and touch just about everything. Because at the end of the day, natural history is about nature, so we believe it is essential to get out and immerse yourself in it. We are naturally different.

Since he declared his candidacy, Donald Trump has repeatedly taken aim at Muslims, painting them as a suspicious population requiring greater scrutiny and surveillance. His consistent calls for banning Muslim refugees and proposing a “Muslim registry” are reflected in many of his cabinet picks and early priorities. This targeting of a faith group is a dangerous omen of what this administration is capable of. Against this backdrop, Edina will explore the way in which the treatment of American Muslims could serve as an advanced warning of danger to our very democracy and how Americans of all faiths can band together to protect our democracy.

SANTA BARBARA COTTAGE HOSPITAL BABIES

“We are so thankful for the expert care we received at Cottage. Audrina is back to being spunky and cheerful.” – Rachele Castillo

Audrina Santa Maria In early 2015, Audrina was diagnosed with Crohns disease and later ulcerative colitis. After a number of treatments and multiple stays in the hospital, specialists at Cottage Children’s Medical Center recommended a series of three surgeries to get her back to her healthy and happy self. Today, Audrina is singing, dancing, and enjoying arts and crafts. Children and families benefit from receiving nationally recognized patient care. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you choose the extensive children’s health care services at Cottage Children’s Medical Center (CCMC). CCMC contains a 17-Bed Acute Pediatrics Unit, 22-Bed Level III NICU, 8-Bed PICU, a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center and the Grotenhuis Pediatric Multispecialty Clinics in Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach and Ventura.

Feel Good

Petra Beumer

Do you want to have a better relationship with your body and the way you eat? Have you wanted to lose weight or change your eating habits, but diets haven’t worked? On Saturday, February 11, you’ll have a chance to learn how to achieve these goals when Petra Beumer, owner of the Mindful Eating Institute, gives a talk titled When Diets Fail— Fail Free Yourself from Emotional Eating at the Schott Center for Lifelong Learning. “My mission is for people to have a relaxed and healthy relationship with food and not to worry about calories, dieting, and weighing themselves,” said the Dusseldorf-born therapist.

B Birth Center Prepares for 250th BaBy felicia greenwald

W

hen my husband and I first found out that I was pregnant, we went about making appointments with an obstetrician, pre-registering at Cottage Hospital, taking Lamaze classes, and so on. But 29 weeks into the pregnancy, we started considered the idea of having the baby at the Santa Barbara Birth Center. I’d always expressed a desire to have a natural birth, and it seemed like the Birth Center would be the best place to facilitate that. Upon transitioning to the center, the first thing that stood out was the length of the appointments. Unlike the average OB appoint- Madison Hunter ment, which was less than 10 minutes, the midwives took their time. Best of all, they listened. Each appointment didn’t necessarily center around just the baby. They were just as much about me. My relationship really grew with each of the midwives so that I felt incredibly comfortable, safe, and looked-after as I went into my first birth. When I went into labor, I phoned the midwife on call. She told me to stick around my home and work through the early stages of labor there. In most “traditional” circumstances, we would have frantically made our way to the hospital the minute my water broke. But the Birth Center encouraged us to calmly embrace this experience in the comfort of my own

home. As the contractions grew closer together, the midwives helped me to know it was time to make my way to the Birth Center, where I labored for an additional 15 hours. The facility was clean and calm, everyone was so attentive, and there were a number of different welcoming amenities to maximize our comfort, from the bed to the hot tub to the standing shower that never got cold! I made my way around the room trying out each birthing option, when I finally settled on the bed — and we welcomed our newborn into the world. Given the length of my labor and my desire to have a natural birth, I could not be more thankful to have had that experience in a place that was so welcoming and safe, and where the relationships were so deep. The midwives helped me work through my most dif difficult moments calmly while keeping me very much in the moment.   I’m now pregnant with my second child, due February 14, and have chosen to be part of the Birth Center experience once again. There, I know that I’m surrounded by women with decades of collective experience who share the same desire for a natural birth that I do. I’m anxiously looking forward to meeting the newest member of our family in the most empathetic environment I know. —Madison Hunter

The S.B. Birth Center (2985 State St.) will host a 5K Run/Walk & Wellness Fair on Saturday, May 6, at Leadbetter Beach. Call 770-3700 or see sbbirthcenter.org.

Kimberly Hayes

Living Elegantly at

Maison K

Background: Santa Barbara–raised Maison K owner Kimberly Hayes grew up in what she described as a stew of architecture and art. Raised by her architect father and S.B. Museum of Art docent mother, the Hayes home was embedded in an appreciation for the decorative arts, architecture, and fashion. “I always thought I’d be an artist when I was younger, but at the same time, when we were little, my brother and I would play store. I loved the idea of selling things, so it’s all kind of stirred up to be who I am and what I do now,” she said. Hayes’s first job was under Wendy Foster, who instilled in her a love for worldly elegance, and she went on to study art history at UCSB. In 2002, after working for national retailers and major wineries in Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, Hayes moved back to Santa Barbara and founded her boutique, Maison K.

What she sells: With an ambience of “Elegant Living,” Hayes offers a unique assortment of artful and one-of-a-kind treasures collected from her travels, with items ranging from Morocco to France and from Turkey to Italy. “What I’m looking for are really special things that I haven’t seen before, that have a handed heritage, different places of origin, and that you can’t get anywhere else,” she said. Hayes organizes her worldly wares by her signature neutrals and naturals palette, with goods of stone, silver, gold, marble, wood, and reed arranged by a pattern of earthy blacks, grays, whites, beiges, crèmes, and browns. It’s a soothing, elegant, and refreshing environment, an international bazaar with Venetian mirrors and Himalayan wedding chests, made over with the posh Santa Barbara style. Favorite items: Maison K is one of the few purveyors of Astier de

Villatte’s renowned and highly in-demand ceramics from Paris. “I am very, very fond of this line,” Hayes excitedly explains of the handmade pieces, textured with a bit of underclay. Hayes’s current favorite product is a line of baroque pearl jewelry made by a couple in Italy. “It’s all strung on linen and silk, and they use crystals and these beautiful, beautiful pearls, and there’s just something very approachable about it,” she said. A line of Kenyan soapstone hearts, also crafted by husband/wife couples, help raise school funds for the artisans’ children. Hayes’s all-time favorite product, though, is her set of one-of-a-kind vintage Moroccan wedding blankets. Each small, woolen blanket has small silver sequins sewn on by women belonging to the Berber tribe in Morocco, who wear the blankets as a part of their traditional marriage ceremonies; here, they’re popular draped over a sofa, bed, or wall. —Anjalie Tandon

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.

CharGers Beat out royals in eleCtrifyinG Game

L

ook who’s riding high in area high school basket-

ball after winning a game in the most chargedup atmosphere of the season: the Dos Pueblos Chargers. “It was our house,” senior guard Dylan Shugart said after the Chargers staved off the San Marcos Royals on Friday night, 65-61. “The difference was our aggressiveness. We gave it everything we had.” DP’s Sovine Gym was packed by students and fans who had seen the Chargers end their drought in the Channel League — 1-7 records each of the last two years — but to go from last place all the way to first, they needed a downpour. It came in the third quarter, when Dos Pueblos scored 30 points to overcome the Royals’ 27-20 halftime lead. Diego Riker’s fourth threepoint bucket of the period put the Chargers ahead 50-47 entering the fourth. San Marcos rallied back with a flurry of threepointers by junior guard Ryan Godges, who tied the score at 58-58. Cyrus Wallace put the Chargers back ahead with a pair of free throws, and Marcellous Gossett expanded the lead to 63-59 with an explosive offensive rebound and putback. After Stefan Korfas of San Marcos made a short jumper with 17 seconds remaining, Shugart and Wallace secured DP’s triumph at the free-throw stripe. With its second victory over the Goleta Valley rivals, Dos Pueblos (5-0 in the Channel League, 18-3 overall) padded its lead over San Marcos (3-2, 17-7) and fourtime defending champion Santa Barbara (2-2, 13-10). The Chargers have a clear path to the title with three league games remaining: tonight (Thu., Feb. 2) against Ventura; February 7 at Santa Barbara; and February 9 at Buena. DP coach Joe Zamora was circumspect. “There’s a lot of games to be played,” he said, including a February 4 game against JSerra at the Nike Extravaganza in Santa Ana. But he is reminded of the last Charger team to win the league in 2008. “They love each other,” he said. “They like to pass to each other.” Zamora also was gratified to feel the electricity around the campus on big-game day.“We had a pep rally,” he said.“Kids were all over the place.”

DPhS Staves off San Marcos in Close Basketball Showdown The Chargers are a seasoned squad, with four senior starters — Shugart, Riker, Gossett, and Thomas Jimenez. Riker (20 points) was the leading scorer Friday, while backcourt mate Shugart scored 14. Wallace, a junior, contributed 10 points. He, Gossett, and Jimenez — all 63 — contended with the Royals’ 68 junior center, Jackson Stormo. Stormo, who put up 36 points in a win over Buena, had to work hard for his team-leading 19 against Dos Pueblos.“He’s very difficult to defend,” said Gossett, an all-league defensive lineman in football.“I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the MVP in the league.”

Stormo played all but a minute or two of Friday’s fastpaced game. “I built up my stamina for a game like this,” he said. It was a night of such intensity that the Royals’ young coach Landon Boucher said he was wrung out just standing on the sideline. San Marcos has a bright future, with four starters, including Stormo, slated to return next year. “He has made unbelievable strides,” Boucher said of the big junior. “As good as he is, he can be even better.” Said DP’s Zamora: “I’m scared to think about next year.” The area’s teams will be slotted into different divisions in the upcoming CIF Southern Section playoffs. Santa Barbara, based on its success in recent years, is in the high-powered Division 1AA; San Marcos is ranked No. 10 in 2AA; and Dos Pueblos is No. 8 in 2A. Two leading men on area prep courts last year — Santa Barbara’s Bolden Brace and San Marcos’s Scott Everman — are seeing significant playing time as college freshman, Brace at Northeastern University, and Everman at UC San Diego. Bishop Diego’s boys, who hold second place in the Tri-Valley League, are in CIF Division 4A. The Cardinals play at rival Carpinteria on Friday, February 3.

CHARGER COUNTRY: Marcellous Gossett (20) puts the ball off the glass over San Marcos center Jackson Stormo during a showdown that packed the Dos Pueblos gym.

Hill, a 2010 graduate of Dos Pueblos High, was a goalkeeper for the gold-medal-winning U.S. water polo team. Nwaba, a 2012 graduate of UCSB and member of the Santa Barbara Track Club, is the U.S. heptathlon champion who finished 12th at the Olympics against the world’s best allaround female track-and-field athletes. The special luncheon will take place Monday, February 6, at 11:30 a.m. at the Earl Warren Showgrounds. Reservations should be made by Thursday. For more info, visit sbart.org. RETIREMENTS: Two-time Olympic decathlon champion Ashton Eaton and his wife, heptathlon bronze medalist Brianne Theisen-Eaton, jointly announced they are

retiring from international athletics. The pair had trained every April for five years at Westmont College. Former Dos Pueblos basketball star Julyan Stone is still playing, but the No. 2 he wore with the Chargers was retired Friday. Stone is on the Indiana Pacers’ D-League team, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

GIRLS’ HOOPS: Dos Pueblos, 19-3 and

ranked No. 4 in Division 2AA, will play at home against Channel League superpower Ventura (No. 8 in 1AA) on Friday night. The Chargers, 3-2 in the league, will visit Santa Barbara on Monday, February 6, in a game likely to decide second place. Mitch Cota,

In three victories by the Cardinal girls, the senior averaged 13.7 points, including a double-double (12 points, 10 rebounds) against Villanova.

Game of the Week

2/4: College Basketball: UC Davis at UCSB It’s a day-night double-header. Coach Bonnie Henrickson hopes for a supportive home crowd when the UCSB women take on the visiting Aggies in a pivotal Big West game. Both teams entered the week a game out of first place. The Gauchos are coming off an 85-60 victory at UC Irvine in which freshman guard Aliceah Hernandez made seven three-pointers. In the men’s game, a depleted UCSB team will try to play spoiler against the first-place Aggies. A ticket to either game Saturday will be good for general admission to the other game. Women: 2pm; Men: 7pm. The Thunderdome, UCSB. $8-$14. Call 893-UCSB (8272) or visit ucsbgauchos.com.

ou just got out of the 11 a.m. documentary about North Africa and plan to hit that Norwegian thriller at 2 p.m., but you’re starving. Or you need some eggs and coffee before joining the early birds for the 8 a.m. Italian comedy, but nothing seems open. Or that on-screen investigation of the latest environmental catastrophe requires a post-flick stiff one before you hit that celebrity tribute at the Arlington. Over the next 10 days, these and many other food-and-drink-needing scenarios will be daily concerns for the thousands who attend the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. To guide you through, we’ve asked our downtown-based staff for their suggestions, and here are some of their top —Matt Kettmann tips.

Breakfast & Coffee

Dawn Patrol (324 State St.): Usual breakfast fare with specialties

including build-your-own hash browns; baked goods such as the Prisoner Egg Muffin; strong, organic coffee; and loose-leaf teas. Get there before 8:45 a.m. if you want to eat inside, or bring proper clothing and eat on the patio. (Paul Wellman, photographer) Joe’s Café (536 State St.): Best sit-down breakfast place near Metro 4. Go for biscuits and gravy egg sandwiches. (Nick Welsh, executive editor) Daily Grind (2001 De la Vina St.): Close to downtown with ample parking, superb breakfast burritos, fresh juices, coffee — everything you’d ever want before 8 a.m. (Brandi Webber, sales rep) Peet’s Coffee (1131 State St.): Quick cup of quality joe, minus a bustling hipster scene. (Kelsey Brugger, news reporter) The courtyard in back is one of the best-kept non-secret secret spots, hidden right out in the open. (NW) Judge for Yourself Café (1218 Santa Barbara St.) and Garrett’s (2001 State St.): Both greasy and good, slightly off the

beaten path, quick, and open early. (Tyler Hayden, senior editor)

LunCh Sachi Ramen and Robata Bar (721 Chapala St.): Great for warm, soupy noodles. (Jean Yamamura, opinions editor) Three Pickles (126 E. Canon Perdido St.): The best Reuben in town. (JY) Savoy Café & Deli (24 W. Figueroa St.): Great spot for any vegetarians/vegans looking for something quick. Their salad bar is amazing, and their vegan burrito is bomb (and easy to hide in your bag). They also have a grab-and-go section and a large variety of water, kombuchas, cold brew, etc. (Emily Cosentino, marketing director) Rincon Alteño (115 E. Haley St.): This taquería is genuinely great, and there’s never a crowd to fight. The chile relleno burrito is a meal for two, but once you start eating, you won’t want to share. (NW) C’est Cheese (825 Santa Barbara St.): Great salads, sandwiches, and cheese. What else could you ask for? (KB) Hana Kitchen (5 W. Haley St.): Fast and yummy, with hella good prices. (TH) South Coast Deli (10 E. Carrillo St.): Order and pay online for easy pickup of tasty yet affordable sandwiches and filling salads. (Matt Kettmann, senior editor)

Renaud’s Patisserie & Bistro (1324 State St.):

To stockpile on the way into the movies, they have the best pastries. (NW)

Cantwell’s Market & Deli (1533 State St.):

Drinks The Good Lion (1212 State St.): Thoughtfully

crafted, meticulously made drinks presented with explanations and flair, usually by dudes with mustaches. Great sherry and vermouth selection, too. (MK) Bobcat Room (11 W. Ortega St.): This cool spot for farm-fresh drinks has a bit of an older crowd than the Wildcat next door. (Laszlo Hodosy, sales rep) Milk & Honey (30 W. Anapamu St.): Craft cocktails that are reasonably priced. (KB) The Pickle Room (126 E. Canon Perdido St.):

Stiff Drinks. Reuben Egg Rolls. Say no more. (KB)

Dinner The Black Sheep (26 E. Ortega St.): They’ve got happy hour at 5-6 p.m., and ramen is just $10. (BW) The ramen might be the best in town and is reasonably priced. Plenty of other tasty, creative dishes, too. Excellent bottled beer selection. (KB) The Palace Grill (8 E. Cota St.): Get there at 5:30 p.m. to get right in and order yourself some quick gumbo and dirty rice. They’ll throw in the

Late night Roy (7 W. Carrillo St.): Tried, true, and tested for

full sit-down meals until midnight. (TH)

The Blue Owl (5 W. Canon Perdido St.): It’s as

close as we get to a bustling Southeast-Asian night market, with night-reviving flavors that burst you back to life, like in their Thai basil burger, shrimp roll, and fried rice. (Richie DeMaria, assistant editor) Little Kitchen (17 W. Ortega St.): Indulge in comfort foods and feel sophisticated about it, too, in their deliciously gourmet bites such as bánh mì sliders, brioche breakfast sandwiches, and a Southwestern chicken tikka masala. (RD) Romanti-Ezer (701 Chapala St.): Mole has a way of tasting better at midnight, a pleasure you can enjoy here in the moonlight with their famed mole burritos or enmoladas, and wash it down with horchata.

Lots of premade snacks that taste homemade. And it’s off the beaten path, so it won’t be jammed. (KB) Lilac Pâtisserie (1017 State St.): All sorts of sugary goodies, many of which can fit in your pocket or purses; gluten-free friendly. (TH)

Rocket Fizz (1021 State St.): The perfect place

corn muffins for free. Terrifically dangerous martinis, too. (JY) Benchmark Eatery (1201 State St.): The pozole verde (hominy, tomatoes, onion, lime, jalapeño) is nothing close to traditional pozole, but the large serving is hearty, tangy, and filling—the perfect in-between movie meal.

SOMERSET REOPENS: Somerset restaurant at 7 E. Anapamu Street has reopened after a brief closure from a kitchen fire. LAO WANG COMING TO ISLA VISTA: Lao Wang

Asian Street Food restaurant, which I recently learned had a location in Old Town Goleta from

lis tell me that it appears Caffe Primo at 516 State Street (the former home of Pierre Lafond Wine Bistro) has closed. Google search results say “closed permanently” and Open Table lists Caffe Primo as “offline.” But Yelp and Caffe Primo’s own website don’t yet mention any changes in status. Caffe Primo opened in October 2015. ALDO’S UPDATE: Reader Ray says that there is a

sign at Aldo’s Italian Restaurant at 1031 State Street saying it is being remodeled and that the for-lease sign, mentioned by other readers, refers to the office upstairs that is available for sublet. Aldo’s website doesn’t indicate that anything has changed. Previously, multiple readers told me that the business was closed, which of course is true under the remodel scenario. I have confirmed that the main phone number has been disconnected, which suggests that something more than a remodel might be going on. Your call. NEW MENU AT OUTPOST: The New Year brings

a new menu to Outpost at 5650 Calle Real in Goleta, where chef Nick Bajal has added seasonal dishes including the Plantain Empanada (pork carnitas, tomatillo broth, and queso fresco), Crispy Chicken Thighs (miso potato salad, Korean chili cucumber, and grilled lime), and Acorn Squash (red quinoa, shaved heirloom carrot, ginger vinaigrette, crispy lotus root, and pickled fresno chili).

ith sweeping water views and sustainability on the menu, The Club & Guest House at UCSB is officially open for business. The former Faculty Club has been under renovation since late 2015. The reborn interior features boutique lodging, state-of-the-art meeting spaces, and a first-class dining room overlooking the campus lagoon and the ocean beyond. “I am thrilled about the new Club & Guest House,” said Willie Brown, UCSB’s associate vice chancellor for Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises. “It is a very unique space that captures the history of the old building while looking toward the future aspirations of one of the world’s great public institutions. As a gathering, meeting, and special events venue, UCSB now has a living room where staff and faculty colleagues can continue their natural exchange of ideas while dining from a quality menu that focuses on local, sustainable, and organic offerings.” Done in partnership with UCSB Housing and Residential Services, the renovation also came with an expansion: The Club & Guest House is twice its former size, with an increased dining and meeting space, 34 guest rooms, and an outdoor terrace. Betty Elings Wells, a UCSB Foundation trustee, real estate investor, and philanthropist, helped fund the project with a significant leadership gift to name the west terrace and a pavilion at the new club. The building also boasts a members’ lounge, a bar, and a private, ocean-view dining room adjacent to the main dining area, plus modernized restrooms. An entrance has been added at the restaurant level, as have a larger lobby and enclosed entry upstairs. The dining room offers breakfast daily for hotel guests and is open for lunch to the broader campus community 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each weekday. Indras Govender, food and beverage manager for The Club, summed up all that’s new and good at the Club & Guest House.“Our beautifully remodeled modern facility now includes state-of-the-art conference rooms together with a new seasonal menu incorporating sustainable, fresh, and locally sourced items coupled with exceptional service delivered by our very own UCSB students,” he said.

SOL SURVIVORS: Reader Susan says that the

managers at the former Café del Sol are still part of the local restaurant scene:“Hi John, Here’s some fun news for those of us agonizing every time a popular local restaurant goes under, a scene happening too frequently the past couple of years. One of our biggest losses was Café del Sol, the kind of place that was loaded with residents and friends. Part of that was thanks to Alfredo and Manny, Manager and Assistant, who always made us feel welcomed. Where are they now? I just found out that they’ve taken over the Crocodile Restaurant at the Lemon Tree Inn! They have a new menu and that same wonderful service. Count on us being ongoing customers.”

Inspired by a conversation with a Norwegian barkeep about herbal liqueurs, the cocktail is an aromatic, floral one, “reflecting the botanical notes you’re likely to find after a post-rain hike,” Rojas said in a statement, with a spicy pop from the Nostrum’s shrub. The cocktail “was engineered with as many local ingredients and producers as we could conjure to fit the true spirit or our local flavor. “Santa Barbara is a cornucopia of flavors, activities, backdrops, climates, and cultures,” and the Ginspiration Point, he said, echoes this “lush variety of flavors. The feeling and flavors you get with our cocktail are analogues to the community’s zest for life and affection for the beauty and variety we experience with our climate, culture, and outdoor life.” Cheers to that! You can try the newly crowned cocktail both at Alcazar (1812 Cliff Dr., 962-0337, alcazar tapasbar.com) and Milk & Honey (30 W. Anapamu St., 275-4232, milknhoneytapas.com). n richie demaria

lcazar’s Ginspiration Point is the 2017 Official Drink of Santa Barbara. An homage to the hike that takes you to one of the city’s most inspiring vista points, the fizzy tipple topped the judges’ lists for the Official Drink of Santa Barbara Cocktail Contest — copresented by Visit Santa Barbara, The Santa Barbara Independent, and the Museum pendent of Contemporary Art S.B.— with raves for its “balanced, lovely” flavor, deemed “super zesty and distinct.” Designed by restaurateur Alvaro Rojas, the drink features Santa Barbara–made Cutler’s gin and Nostrum pineapple turmeric ginger shrub, along with Bénédictine, lime juice, Chartreuse, and an egg white from the S.B. Farmers Market. “I feel really honored that we were chosen to represent the whole city with a cocktail, and moving forward with all these great players that I’m among, it feels a little surreal,” said Rojas, who made the drink onstage with assistant Kyle Peete.“It’s a privilege to live in a town where we have an elevated cocktail scene now,” he added.

GhostliGht Project commitment

The tension in a divided American community hit a climax with the inauguration of the new president. As Trump took office, many of the disenfranchised marched to defend their power, which they fear will be revoked in this new political era. The American theater community, on the eve of the inauguration, enacted its own protest. On January 19, the Ghostlight Project lit up theaters across the country, when at 5:30 p.m. in each time zone, members of the artistic community convened to turn on a collective “ghostlight” (created by flashlights and phones) to symbolize a light in the darkness. In Santa Barbara, they stood in solidarity in front of the Lobero Theatre, offering the community at large a safe harbor from intolerance in all its myriad masks. “When our theaters go dark at the end of the night, we turn on a ghostlight,” said event emcee Charles Donelan (who is also this paper’s executive arts editor). “This offers visibility and safety for those who might enter [the theater]. This tradition is tonight’s inspiration. Like a ghostlight, the light we create tonight will symbolize our values of embracing diversity … and the belief that through our actions, positive change is possible.” Attendees made personal pledges for continued action to create art spaces that are both safe and brave, which included the promise to inspire audiences to attend and participate in the theater; to engage in creative collaboration that inspires connection and community; to not react to the negative, but appreciate the good and emphasize, pursue, and speak the positive; and to fight for and embody human kindness and human rights (no matter what gender identity, race, political party, religion, or sexuality). Santa Barbara’s artistic community proudly pledges to continue its commitment to inclusion, participation, and compassion — on and off the stage. — Maggie Yates

by Richie DeMaria U.S.A. OF WTF: What a gloriously nightmarish era we have sleepwalked into! Even our eloquent forefathers could only be moved to utter “WTF?!” at this bizarrely divided house, with its racist “no entry” signs. Sure, they had their Civil War, but has ever the human consciousness collectively wreaked such havoc on the planet in the name of America? Questions like these I ponder when we have a few consciously geographical music artists singing of American soils in an often uplifting way: S.B.’s very own punk-become-Americana artist Dave Hause & The Mermaid, who plays with Kayleigh Goldsworthy at The Imperial (320 S. Kellogg Ave., Goleta) on Friday, February 3, and old-time musician Willie Watson, who plays Buellton’s Standing Sun Winery (92 2nd St., Ste. D) with Sean Watkins on that same night. These artists dig deep into the roost of American tradition, in old-time, bluegrass, country, and other styles, and punk in the case of Hause, recalling the America that is truly lovable.

“The pre-eminent large ensemble of our time.” – The New York Times

IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN CALIFORNIA: “This record was more about moving west and falling in love with the discomfort that can come when you come into a new place,” said Hause on his new album, Bury Me in Philly, released the day he plays the Imperial. He first fell in love with Cali while getting a samurai tattoo in San Francisco in the ’90s and moved here from his Philadelphia home in 2013. Upon the move, it became “abundantly clear that the thing that you leave ends up being sort of what you lean on and defines you in a new place.” His roots became the framework for his newest work.“I found myself not only missing my family and my tribe but really identifying with the workingclass spirit and the grit that comes along with the East Coast.” S.B.’s a different place, and he loves it here, but he admits the move was a risk— risk the basis of the lyrics for his new song “The Flinch.” “To put it on the line is scary, and you can fail; I think that little anthem hopefully is an encouragement to other people having a hard time in getting over that hump, whatever it may be.” WATSON TAP: Watson, whose music delves deep into the history of Appalachian song, is an old voice in a troubling new time. His is quite the voice, too, sometimes almost a yodel or a wail, the type you might expect to surface on a dusty warm vinyl from decades ago. Since leaving Old Crow Medicine Show, Watson, the band’s cofounder, has readied up a new batch of songs in Folk Singer Vol. 2, a collection of covers from the last century of song, and he’s quite proud of the batch. “I actually like it; I can’t really say that for pretty much everything I’ve ever recorded,” he said. Being a solo artist is “very freeing,” he added.“What I’m doing now is back to the basics, back to the beginning as far as performing.” He doesn’t feel especially cheery about the state of things but finds solace in songs of old, as does his longtime friend Sean Watkins, the Nickel Creek cofounder who addressed politics on his latest, What to Fear.“I don’t think America has changed so much as it’s sort of been discovered and uncovered. We’re coming to terms with who we actually are,” said Watkins of the new versus old America. “It’s going to bring about a lot of good art; it’s really cathartic,” he said, but there’s much good to be found, as well, in the wisdom of old songs, too. “The old songs, they still ring true and always will.” n

auded violinist Itzhak Perlman played a sold-out show at the Granada Theatre last Monday, celebrating the 20th anniversary of his klezmer album In the Fiddler’s House. Accompanied by talented members of Brave Old World, the Klezmer At the Granada Conservatory Band, and Theatre, Mon., The Klezmatics, Perlman Jan. 23. put on a one-time concert that included a spontaneous set of lively music from the Hasidic culture. Featuring melodies pulled directly from the Sabbath and traditional klezmer medleys, the concert included a vibrant, high-energy montage that Perlman himself performed at his daughter’s wedding. With Andy Statman shredding on the mandolin and Frank London demonstrating mad trumpet skills, Perlman bowed with such passionate speed that the audience formed an impromptu grandscale hora. Klezmer Conservatory Band’s clarinetist Ilene Stahl delivered a powerhouse performance so emotive that the audience gasped and applauded her formidable sound. Quick-witted and humorous, Perlman’s

The first selection, Beethoven’s frenetic Violin Concerto in D Major At the Lobero Theatre, Tue., showcased the orchestra’s Jan. 24 impeccable string section, a collaboration of skilled performers who together created a sound of sheer magnitude. With a stoic demeanor, Huang quickly proved himself one of today’s finest young violinists; within minutes of taking the stage, he secured himself a spot beside virtuosos Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell. The concerto’s first movement included a fiery violin solo that impressed and inspired, with Huang channeling a clear serenity in the chaos of Beethoven’s grand schematics. It was a true honor to experience Huang’s talent backed by such an outstanding orchestra, a performance worth many standing ovations. Following Beethoven, the orchestra played Schubert’s ambitious Symphony No. 9 in C Major, a composition of epic proportion that

His witty rejoinders to the harping of Mrs. Brummett garner some of the evening’s biggest laughs.

Although fine ensemble work across the board lays its firm foundation, Gulf View Drive’s highest points belong to Nicksay as May.

his may be hard to believe, but last week marked 15 years since the release of Mandy Moore’s tearjerker film A Walk to Remember, which introduced the world to a littleknown rock band At the Arlington named Switchfoot. Theatre, Thu., The commercial Jan. 26 success of the movie launched the San Diego–based group’s musical career when it featured songs “You,” “Learning to Breathe,” “Only Hope,” and “Dare You to Move.” More than a decade later, the fellows are still at the top of their game, as proved by their electrifying set at the Arlington Theatre last Thursday night. Switchfoot opened its set with a powerful performance of “Meant to Live.” Singer Jon Foreman gave a shout-out to his hometown but shared his admiration for Santa Barbara and the surf at Rincon. Fans lost it when the frontman took the idiom — and song title —“Bull in a China Shop” quite literally as he sprawled across the first few rows of chairs to shake hands with fans. Also on the band’s set list were “Only Hope,” the heart-wrenching Christian-

themed song Moore sings in A Walk to Remember, “Love Alone Is Worth the Fight,” and “The Shadow Proves the Sunshine.”Arms swayed in the air to the heartfelt songs. This tour is called Looking for America, and the band sought to inspire hope with its message. Foreman shared words of unity with the audience when he said, “Before anything happens: If you look different from me, if you vote different from me, you are still my brother.” The show ended with Foreman holding up a sheet of paper that read “Where I Belong” as he quoted the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal,” he said. “I’d just like to say to those looking for hope that change is gonna happen.” — Savanna Mesch independent.com

a&e | film & TV cOnt’d frOM p. 61 liams 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 Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (106 mins., R)

The Founder

NOW SHOWiNG 20th Century Women (118 mins., R) O Dorothea (Annette Bening) is a nononsense single mother intent on seeing the world through her teenage son’s eyes. The kid is California dreaming, skateboarding down canyon roads, and soaking up free-spirited Santa Barbara, which, according to our hometown boy (writer/director Mike Mills), thrived in the ’70s thanks to the spiky intelligence of intriguing women played so wonderfully by this dream cast. (JK) Paseo Nuevo

A Dog’s Purpose (120 mins., PG) A Dog’s Purpose attempts to answer the implied titular question through the story of a dog that gets reincarnated through multiple lives. While the movie’s themes and messages don’t offend, dialogue did. Much of the film was a predictable and preachy cheese-fest with Josh Gad’s narration at the forefront. The movie dabbled in some adult concepts like alcoholism and depression but mostly stuck to a naive and Disney-like concept of a plot. Don’t go out of your way to avoid the film, but certainly don’t make it a mission to see it. (JT)

Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

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 to power through the American mandate to “win” and profit at all costs. (RD)

Paseo Nuevo

before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which made segregation illegal. It’s a story of how human resilience, compassion, and knowledge superseded NASA’s bureaucratic mandates of segregation and allowed three African-American women — played by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe — to participate in making John Glenn the first American astronaut to orbit around Earth. (SM) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

O La La Land

(128 mins., PG-13)

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling play young artists trying to make it in the entertainment industry; their chemistry is akin to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, including a delightfully enchanting tap dancing scene. Through song, dance, humor, romance, and heartache, the lovers inspire each other to work for their dreams. Yet the film also reminds the audience that fantasy can be just that — things we desire but may never have. (SM) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

O Lion (118 mins., PG-13) Loss and love propel Lion, in which a 5-year-old boy falls asleep on a decommissioned train and ends up 900 miles from his village in rural India. Surviving the hellish streets of Calcutta and a dodgy orphanage, the boy gets adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty years later, Saroo (portrayed by a soulful, melodramatic Dev Patel) goes looking for his birth mother with the aid of Google Earth. Based on a true story, the movie is both timely (80,000 children go missing in India each year) and timeless (a perfect cinematic depiction of every mother’s worst nightmare). Alternating between heartbreaking and hopeful, Lion is deeply moving. The cast includes Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara. (HDK) Plaza de Oro O Manchester by the Sea (137 mins., R)

This poignant film captures raw human emotion in the wake of tragedy. Not only do Casey Affleck and Michelle Wil-

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.

O Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (134 mins., PG-13)

In terms of the Star Wars timeline, Rogue One falls between the space opera’s disappointing prequels and its game-changing originals — so after the Empire really hits its dark-side stride but before the Alliance blows the Death Star to bits. In terms of appeal, the 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 damn. Fun homages abound without being overplayed. But Rogue One tries too hard to cement a new cast of gritty yet lovable rebel warriors, throwing out action and one-liners when a couple more moments of meaningful dialogue would have hit much harder. Still, it’s a ride worth taking. (TH) Camino Real

(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 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 febRuaRy 2 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Once upon a time, Calvin of the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip made this bold declaration: “Happiness isn’t good enough for me! I demand euphoria!” Given your current astrological aspects, Aries, I think you have every right to invoke that battle cry yourself. From what I can tell, there’s a party underway inside your head. And I’m pretty sure it’s a healthy bash, not a decadent debacle. The bliss it stirs up will be authentic, not contrived. The release and relief it triggers won’t be trivial and transitory, but will generate at least one long-lasting breakthrough.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): The coming weeks will be an excellent time to ask for favors. I think you will be exceptionally adept at seeking out people who can actually help you. Furthermore, those from whom you request help will be more receptive than usual. Finally, your timing is likely to be close to impeccable. Here’s a tip to aid your efforts: A new study suggests that people are more inclined to be agreeable to your appeals if you address their right ears rather than their left ears. (More info: tinyurl.com/intherightear)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Here are your five words of power for the next two weeks, Gemini. (1) Unscramble. Invoke this verb with regal confidence as you banish chaos and restore order. (2) Purify. Be inspired to cleanse your motivations and clarify your intentions. (3) Reach. Act as if you have a mandate to stretch out, expand, and extend yourself to arrive in the right place. (4) Rollick. Chant this magic word as you activate your drive to be lively, carefree, and frolicsome. (5) Blithe. Don’t take anything too personally, too seriously, or too literally.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The 17th-century German alchemist Hennig Brand collected 1,500 gallons of urine from beer-drinkers, then cooked and re-cooked it until it achieved the “consistency of honey.” Why? He

thought his experiment would eventually yield large quantities of gold. It didn’t, of course. But along the way, he accidentally produced a substance of great value: phosphorus. It was the first time anyone had created a pure form of it. So in a sense, Brand “discovered” it. Today phosphorus is widely used in fertilizers, water treatment, steel production, detergents, and food processing. I bring this to your attention, my fellow Cancerian, because I suspect you will soon have a metaphorically similar experience. Your attempt to create a beneficial new asset will not generate exactly what you wanted, but will nevertheless yield a useful result.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In the documentary movie Catfish, the directors, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, present a metaphor drawn from the fishing industry. They say that Asian suppliers used to put live codfish in tanks and send them to overseas markets. It was only upon arrival that the fish would be processed into food. But there was a problem: Because the cod were so sluggish during the long trips, their meat was mushy and tasteless. The solution? Add catfish to the tanks. That energized the cod and ultimately made them more flavorful. Moral of the story, according to Joost and Schulman: Like the cod, humans need catfish-like companions to stimulate them and keep them sharp. Do you have enough influences like that in your life, Leo? Now is a good time to make sure you do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The city of Boston allows an arts organization called Mass Poetry to stencil poems on sidewalks. The legal graffiti is done with a special paint that remains invisible until it gets wet. So if you’re a pedestrian trudging through the streets as it starts to rain, you may suddenly behold, emerging from the blank gray concrete, Langston Hughes’s poem “Still Here” or Fred Marant’s “Pear Tree in Flower.” I foresee a metaphorically similar development in your life, Virgo: a pleasant and educational surprise arising unexpectedly out of the vacant blahs.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When he was in the rock band Devo, Mark Mothersbaugh took his time composing and recording new music. From 1978 to 1984, he and his collaborators averaged one album per year. But when Mothersbaugh started writing soundtracks for the weekly TV show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, his process went into overdrive. He typically wrote an entire show’s worth of music each Wednesday and recorded it each Thursday. I suspect you have that level of creative verve right now, Libra. Use it wisely! If you’re not an artist, channel it into the area of your life that most needs to be refreshed or reinvented.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Many vintage American songs remain available today because of the pioneering musicologist John Lomax. In the first half of the 20th century, he traveled widely to track down and record obscure cowboy ballads, folk songs, and traditional African American tunes. “Home on the Range” was a prime example of his many discoveries. He learned that song, often referred to as “the anthem of the American West,” from a black saloonkeeper in Texas. I suggest we make Lomax a role model for you Scorpios during the coming weeks. It’s an excellent time to preserve and protect the parts of your past that are worth taking with you into the future.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The mountain won’t come to you. It will not acquire the supernatural power to drag itself over to where you are, bend its craggy peak down to your level, and give you a free ride as it returns to its erect position. So what will you do? Moan and wail in frustration? Retreat into a knot of helpless indignation and sadness? Please don’t. Instead, stop hoping for the mountain to do the impossible. Set off on a journey to the remote, majestic pinnacle with a fierce song in your determined heart. Pace yourself. Doggedly master the art of slow, incremental magic.

stances, a human can prevail. In June of every year since 1980, the Man Versus Horse Marathon has taken place in the Welsh town of Llanwrtyd Wells. The route of the race weaves 22 miles through marsh, bogs, and hills. On two occasions, a human has outpaced all the horses. According to my astrological analysis, you Capricorns will have that level of animalistic power during the coming weeks. It may not take the form of foot speed, but it will be available as stamina, energy, vitality, and instinctual savvy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Who would have guessed that Aquarian Charles Darwin, the pioneering theorist of evolution, had a playful streak? Once he placed a male flower’s pollen under a glass along with an unfertilized female flower to see if anything interesting would happen.“That’s a fool’s experiment,” he confessed to a colleague. “But I love fools’ experiments. I am always making them.” Now would be an excellent time for you to consider trying some fools’ experiments of your own, Aquarius. I bet at least one of them will turn out to be both fun and productive.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, three witches brew up a spell in a cauldron. Among the ingredients they throw in there is the “eye of newt.” Many modern people assume this refers to the optical organ of a salamander, but it doesn’t. It’s actually an archaic term for “mustard seed.” When I told my Piscean friend John about this, he said, “Damn! Now I know why Jessica didn’t fall in love with me.” He was making a joke about how the love spell he’d tried hadn’t worked. Let’s use this as a teaching story, Pisces. Could it be that one of your efforts failed because it lacked some of the correct ingredients? Did you perhaps have a misunderstanding about the elements you needed for a successful outcome? If so, correct your approach and try again.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Who can run faster, a person or a horse? There’s evidence that under certain circum-
