The Fund for Santa Barbara’s Gary Clark was in Australia giving a talk at Swinburne University on “Change, Not Charity” and found folks “very curious about the Trump administration and its impact on the nonprofit sector.” About 10,000 Aussies and Kiwis had protested Trump’s inauguration the day before Clark touched down. Politics aside, he got to some of New Zealand’s famous beauty spots: Wharariki Beach (“Oh my god!” was his comment) and Wainui Falls, pictured here. The highlight of the trip, though, was the Australian Open (at which people chanted Hillary slogans when Americans were on the court): “I got to share the experience with my mom,” he said, “who taught me how to play tennis when I was 8 years old.”

NEWS of the WEEK pau l wellm an photos

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

poliTiCs

news Briefs law & disorder A UC Santa Barbara international student from China committed suicide on 2/12. Weiwei Liu, 20, was found dead in her dorm room at Santa Cruz Residence Hall after UCSB police responded at about 4 p.m. They confirmed her death later that evening. Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover declined to comment how Liu died or say whether or not she left a note. Hoover said the death is under investigation, but “no foul play [is] suspected.” Strong smells and barking alerted paramedics and a Caltrans worker to the hoarding of 47 dogs in Santa Barbara and Los Alamos, respectively. Kathryn Thomas was sentenced to three years’ probation in January after 23 Jack Russell terriers and Australian shepherds that she was breeding were found in her stinking Ontare Road home last April. In Los Alamos in November, 24 dogs were found languishing in a home with excrement-covered floors. Owner Sean Donaghy’s arraignment on a misdemeanor failure to care for animals is scheduled for 2/27. One dog was euthanized for liver failure, seven were adopted, four are in foster care, eight were transferred to nonprofit partners, and four are up for adoption.

CoUNTY Just two weeks before the proposal was due, mental-health advocates were invited to offer input on a $3 million state grant for expanded alternative treatment programs. At a meeting on 2/9, county Behavior Wellness’s Suzanne Grimmesey told an agitated crowd the grant would set up an initial Post-Arrest Diversion and Support Program to serve 40 people per year in South County. About a third would receive some housing assistance. Deputy public defender and mental-health advocate Deedra Edgar was among those who thought the program should focus on substance abusers, a target of the grant monies: “the people … in the criminal justice system [who] don’t have a place to go in this county.” Edgar also pointed out that $75,000 per person didn’t “seem like an appropriate model.”

‘Shouting into the hurricAne’ Indivisible Santa Barbara Borrows Tea Party Tactics

A

by Nick Welsh

nti-Trump activists have designated every Tuesday a “Resist Trump Tuesday,” a time to demonstrate their disagreement with the new president’s agenda. This last Tuesday started off on a positive note, with a delegation from Indivisible Santa Barbara, a branch of the nationwide movement, showering newly elected Congressmember Salud Carbajal with handmade Valentine’s greetings. “We Love You Salud,” proclaimed one. Carbajal, of course, was in Congress at the time—not in his new digs by the Plaza de Oro movie theater. As the 24th Congressional District’s representative in Washington, D.C., Carbajal has become the go-to man for the growing legion of Indivisible volunteers in Santa Barbara. A liberal-progressive organization, Indivisible intentionally seeks to mimic the take-no-prisoners, in-your-face tactics of the right-wing populist Tea Party. Carbajal, a liberal Democrat who has already spoken out against Trump’s policies on the floor of the House, has not yet experienced their ire. There was no such luck for archconservative Republican Congressmember Tom McClintock, who represents the Sacramento metro region. (McClintock once represented Santa Barbara in the State Senate

before moving north eight years ago.) Two hundred Indivisible activists from his district packed a town hall meeting McClintock scheduled in Roseville last week, leaving several hundred more protesters outside. Inside, they were boisterous and determined, challenging McClintock’s stated intention to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Roseville police insisted Indivisible protestors were peaceful and cooperative, but since the crowd was bigger than anything they’d encountered, they gave McClintock a police escort when he left. McClintock later spoke on the House floor, bemoaning the loss of civility in public discourse, but only after he first characterized the protestors as “an anarchist element” and “the radical left.” There were no Indivisible Valentines for McClintock. The national Indivisible organization began shortly after the presidential election as nothing more than a well-modulated civics primer on social media, written by former

staffers of a former Democratic congressmember from Texas. The 26-page how-to manual offered angry but politically inexperienced anti-Trump citizens ways to make elected officials feel their heat. It emphasized the success enjoyed by Tea Party agitators, who translated their rage against the bank bailout and the 2008 election of President Barack Obama into a highly effective campaign of uncompromising opposition. Certainly, Carbajal’s predecessor — Congressmember Lois Capps—felt their wrath when busloads of Tea Party activists assembled in front of her downtown offices to denounce

Earlier this month, CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy) published figures on the county’s immigration numbers derived from Census and other accredited data. Their findings include the following: Nearly a quarter of the county’s population are immigrants, and more than 11,000 undocumented farmworkers labor in county fields and ranches. Among all immigrants, 67,949 are noncitizens, 39,516 are undocumented, and 23,871 of those undocumented are working. Among studentage immigrants, 5,000 are eligible for the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Program, and 4,000 are currently enrolled. The Secure Communities program deported 2,684 people.

He lived in the City of Santa Barbara and had been previously convicted of assault with a deadly weapon, a misdemeanor charge, as well as other low-level, alcohol-related charges. Carreno had been named on the city’s proposed gang injunction, which a Superior Court judge ultimately threw out. Five years ago, he was featured in a video produced by Youth CineMedia, which works with atrisk young people, protesting the injunction. At that time, he had two low-level, alcoholrelated incidents and an altercation with his brother on his record. He had been a Santa Barbara City College student, majoring in English. —Kelsey Brugger

Prison for DUI Attorney

D

arryl Genis, perhaps Santa Barbara’s best known and most verbally bombastic criminal attorney, was sentenced Monday to serve 24 months behind bars by a federal judge in Los Angeles. Convicted of willfully failing to pay $679,958 in taxes on $3.5 million of unreported earnings over eight years, Genis will surrender to authorities May 15. Under federal rules, Genis will only be allowed a 3.6-month reduced sentence for good behavior. Genis pleaded guilty to three counts of criminal misdemeanor tax evasion last year. “I did what I did, and there’s no excuse,” he said, claiming a 20-year gambling addiction partly explained his “extremely poor judgment.” In court papers, Genis claimed he lost $166,000 in Las Vegas during one weekend alone. His attorney, Martin Schainbaum, argued Genis was badly advised by his now deceased accountant and that he should be sentenced to house arrest, thus allowing him to pay back his IRS debt — which Genis estimates at $1.5 million. “Restitution … effectively places the defendant in economic servitude, an incarceration without bars,” Schainbaum pleaded. Federal Judge Dale Fischer rejected such arguments and reportedly opined that she regretted not imposing a stiffer sentence. “I didn’t hear it that way,” said Genis, “but she could have.”

anta Barbara Sheriff ’s deputies fatally shot 26-yearold Bryan Carreno Sunday night after a pursuit and a standoff near North La Cumbre Road. According to Sheriff ’s Office spokesperson Kelly Hoover, a family member of Carreno’s called 9-1-1 at about 6:30 p.m. to report he was in a garage behaving erratically. Carreno, thought to be high on methamphetamine, left the garage and made his way through the neighborhood, witnesses told deputies, climbing onto “several roofs” and eventually breaking into a house on Russell Way. The residents fled outside while deputies entered. They found Carreno inside armed with what Hoover described as a kitchen knife with a “fourinch handle” and “large blade.” The deputies went back outside and ordered Carreno multiple times to drop the weapon, but he refused, said Hoover. He advanced on the deputies, and five of them fired “multiple” shots. Hoover declined to comment on the identity of the deputies or the number of shots fired. Carreno died at the scene.

Darryl Genis Twenty-five letters of recommendation were submitted, many by attorneys praising Genis’s legal skills and by former DUI clients, including investigative reporter Peter Lance, who had written controversial articles attacking his arresting officer Kasi Beutel. He called Genis, who succeeded in getting his DUI charges dropped, “one of the finest attorneys in the nation.” Genis has claimed the District Attorney’s Office targeted him for standing up for the accused. But even admirers concede Genis can often be his own worst enemy, gratuitously antagonizing judges and prosecutors. —Nick Welsh

he last time any meaningful amount of rental housing was built in the City of Santa Barbara, Ronald Reagan was president, The Golden Girls had just debuted, and rent averaged around $500 a month. For the next 30 years, virtually no apartments would be constructed as the city intentionally slowed growth to preserve Santa Barbara’s smalltown character, and developers found far better profits in single-family homes and condominiums. This drought in new rental housing — which has helped squeeze the vacancy rate to below one percent and driven rent prices to record levels — will start to lift February 25 when The Marc hosts its grand opening.

It’s exactly what we envisioned from the beginning.” Dubois said he hopes to have The Marc fully leased in the next six to nine months. But the project is not without its critics. They’ve balked at The Marc’s high price points and are skeptical it will attract the Santa Barbara area workers for whom the AUD program was designed. City Councilmembers Jason Dominguez and Bendy White have proposed putting the brakes on the AUD program until it can be tweaked to better meet its intended goals. Others at City Hall have cautioned against prematurely reworking the program before its true impacts can be measured. Yes, The Marc may be expensive, they’ve said, but the program should be given time to mature and produce a variety of projects with varying rates, which, taken as a whole, will eventually soften Santa Barbara’s drum-tight rental market. —Tyler Hayden

Pini Faces thousands of Violations

S

anta Barbara City Attorney Ariel Calonne announced that 3,200 notices of code violations on 13 rental properties owned by landlord Dario Pini were posted this Tuesday. Calonne said Pini, the target of an intense inspection sweep in early December, will have 30 days to remediate the issues. How Pini complies, Calonne said, will affect whether the city initiates receivership actions against him. The notices of violation include vermin, mold, faulty toilets, exposed wiring, and construction conducted without permits. Calonne said tenants would be notified by mail that the work was required but that they had nothing to fear.

“These are trumped-up charges,” Pini said, resulting from when building inspectors arrived on his properties in December 2016 with 15 armed police officers. “It’s a Wednesday. It’s raining. Kids are in school,” he said. “They have no place to go.” The 12

whole thing, Pini said, extremely alarmed the tenants.“Imagine, Trump just got elected and now this!” Though Pini claimed the violations were not health and safety concerns, one two-bedroom unit reportedly had 12 beds and was missing an inside doorknob. Pini expressed surprise at this, but he said it was because previous low-income rentals have been recently upgraded, displacing existing tenants. His attorney, Larry Powell, said all 100 units inspected in December have been brought up to code. To date, City Hall has never taken over a rental property from a noncompliant landlord. And Pini, who rents to thousands of tenants, has never lost a property to receivership.

GeTTiNG iN earlY: Growers urged the county supervisors to begin establishing local regulations for recreational marijuana businesses so they can apply for state licenses next January.

he Board of Supervisors meeting on recreational pot was so confusing it lasted two and a half hours longer than planned. But it wasn’t because everyone was stoned. The Santa Maria hearing room was packed with consummate professionals, County Supervisor Steve Lavagnino noted, decidedly not characters from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Some marijuana growers in Santa Barbara County have been urging officials to establish a local regulatory framework so they can apply for state licenses when regulators start issuing them next January. To be eligible, growers must provide a form of authorization from their local jurisdictions. If county officials failed to provide such authorization or dragged their feet, growers said, they would be out of luck. They explained they would be less competitive with other places —a shame, considering the area’s plush sunlight makes cannabis grow like weeds. But on Tuesday, they breathed a sigh of relief. The county supervisors voted to set up a registry for marijuana growers that would allow them, as proponents put it, to “come out of the shadows.” Even though hundreds of marijuana operations exist in the county, there is no record of them, save for websites like weedmaps.com. “I don’t even think we know what the baseline is,” Lavagnino said. “Three hundred or a thousand. It’s kind of a gray area right now.” It also proved to be cloudy in terms of political leanings. Supervisor Janet Wolf, a strong liberal progressive, was the only one to vote against the registry. “The whole industry for me is really troubling,” she said. “I know the voters voted for it, but it goes against what I’ve seen in the county,” including juvenile justice, CenCal low-cost (health insurance), and mental-health issues. The other county supervisors, though, had few reservations about moving forward. Even Supervisor Peter Adam, the farright-winger who owns a massive commercial farm, acknowledged,“Pandora’s box has been opened. … As much as I hate to say it,

we should let them have their experiment,” he said, “and in half a decade or a decade, we’ll figure out if it was good or not and maybe we’ll rejigger the law.” For the time being, the supervisors also voted to form a subcommittee—manned by supervisors Lavagnino and Das Williams—to study the various facets of the entire pot business, from cultivation to delivery.

the FeAr eFFect Anxiety and Rumors Abound After ICE Raids

A

by Tyler Hayden

fter last week’s deportation raids that resulted in the arrest of 680 people across the country— including five in Santa Barbara County— city police are still trying to dispel rumors of immigration sweeps and checkpoints actively taking place throughout town. “We have been receiving information that people are claiming there are ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] checkpoints in the city,” said Sergeant Joshua Morton in an email. Similarly, The Santa Barbara Independent received multiple reports of ICE agents making arrests along State, Milpas, and San Andres streets. A checkpoint on Las Positas Road was also described. None of those reports could be verified. “[ICE] has not conducted any ‘checkpoints’ within the City of Santa Barbara,” said Morton. Police did set up a DUI checkpoint over the weekend, Morton explained, but it was announced ahead of time and did not involve federal agents. ICE agents typically operate on their own when they enter Santa Barbara to conduct what the agency calls “targeted enforcement operations.” They will occasionally ask police for assistance. Federal officials are not required to notify local law enforcement departments when operating within their jurisdictions but may do so as a matter of courtesy.“It does not appear [ICE agents] were in the city making any of the arrests during this sweep,” said Morton. ICE confirmed Monday that 161 arrests were made in six Southern California counties during the five-day, nationwide roundup called Operation Cross Check. More than half of those 161 arrests took place in Los Angeles. The majority of suspects— 151— had prior criminal convictions for domestic violence (42), drug offenses (26), assault (23), sex crimes (17), and DUI (17). The suspects came from 13 different countries, including Mexico (121), El Salvador (16), and Guatemala (11). “This operation targeted public safety threats,” the agency said in a prepared statement, “such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, and individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws.” ICE agents arrested four individuals in Santa Maria and one in Los Alamos. The agency has not disclosed the nature of their offenses. Authorities admitted that during their sweeps, agents frequently encounter immigrants who may not have committed any crime other than entering the country illegally. These collateral contacts are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, the agency said, and the individuals are arrested and deported when appropriate. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said last week’s arrests were business as usual for the agency. “ICE conducts these kind of

targeted enforcement operations regularly and has for many years,” he said. Kelly said President Donald Trump “has been clear in affirming the critical mission of [the Department of Homeland Security] in protecting the nation” by deporting those who have violated immigration laws. But immigration advocates across the country contend last week’s sweeps were both broader and more intrusive than previous ICE enforcement actions. They worry the raids are a sign of things to come under Trump and his stated intent to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, which was fortified by his recent executive order to expand the criteria that would make a person a priority for removal — including being only charged with any criminal offense, no matter how minor, and committing an act that could lead to a criminal charge. “These mass immigration raids are striking terror into our communities,” said Lucas Zucker with CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy), a Santa Barbara immigrantrights group. “For so many local people, this means at any moment their parents or spouses, neighbors or friends, coworkers or classmates could be picked up and taken away.” Congressmember Salud Carbajal said he was “troubled” by ICE’s new protocols and will be meeting with immigration officials from the Department of Homeland Security both in Santa Barbara and Washington, D.C., “to ascertain firsthand the extent of their operations and future operating procedure regarding deportation priorities under this administration.” Last week, Carbajal’s district staff met with ICE supervisor Steven Finn in Santa Maria to discuss the agency’s new arrest guidelines. Finn spoke generally about the Santa Maria branch’s mission and said it was still focused on finding convicted criminals. Carbajal’s staff are still trying to determine if the five Santa Barbara County residents arrested during Operation Cross Check had any sort of criminal record. Carbajal and other members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus were scheduled to meet with ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan on Tuesday. Homan, however, canceled the meeting at the last minute, claiming the caucus had tried to expand the number of attendees, which would make the gathering too partisan and break congressional rules. “Bullshit!” Representative Grace Napolitano (D-CA) exclaimed at a Tuesday afternoon press conference. She and other congressmembers said they knew of no such rules and that administration officials frequently meet with multiple members of the same party without equal representation of the other. n

Legal Punches thrown in Vacation-rental Fight

F

acing a lawsuit that claims the city’s position against short-term rentals violates state law supporting affordable lodging along the California coast, City Attorney Ariel Calonne countered on January 30, filing an antiSLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) motion against plaintiff Theo Kracke, owner of Paradise Retreats, which manages vacation rentals countywide.

pau l wellm an f i le photo

immiGraTioN

The common perception that the city has banned short-term rentals is “entirely not true,” said Calonne, explaining that councilmembers simply voted unanimously last summer to increase funding to enforce zoning ordinances that prohibit homeowners in residential neighborhoods from renting out rooms or entire houses for stays of less than a month. Kracke’s lawsuit, Calonne added, “constitutes a direct attack on the First Amendment rights of 70 [public speakers and] the City Council.” According to court documents, “Kracke does not challenge the validity of the city’s ordinance, which was enacted in 1954 and amended in 1983. Instead, Kracke challenges the city’s discussions and the informal minute order documenting those discussions.”

Theo Kracke “The City’s heavy-handed tactics continue,” Kracke said in a statement. “It’s outrageous the City is alleging I’m stifling … free speech. It’s obvious the … strategy is to delay and escalate my attorneys’ fees in the hopes that I drop the lawsuit. The [California] Coastal Commission is on record that any action banning short-term rentals amounts to ‘development’ under the Coastal Act and therefore requires an amendment to the City’s Local Coastal Program or an application for a Coastal Development Permit.” Ventura Superior Court Judge Mark Borrell hears the case on March 2. —Keith Hamm

new Psych Beds Looming

F

or decades, Santa Barbara County has suffered from an excruciatingly small number of involuntary treatment beds for those in severe mentalhealth crisis. Last week, a county committee authorized the expenditure of $4 million to convert Santa Barbara’s old juvenile hall on Hollister Avenue into a 15-bed lockdown facility for individuals whose psychological issues have gotten them in criminal trouble. The point of the new facility — known in the bureaucratic parlance as an “institution for mental disease” or IMD — is to keep the mentally ill out of County Jail and get them into treatment. There are no IMD beds anywhere in Santa Barbara County and never have been. The same committee — the Community Corrections Partnership — authorized an additional $750,000 to staff the new facility. That’s only enough, however, to run it for two months. Where the rest of that money comes from has yet to be determined, but Behavioral Wellness czar Alice Gleghorn noted that millions can be saved by the new bed spaces.

spends $3 million a year keeping low-level criminal offenders deemed “incompetent to stand trial” (ISTs) in the county’s Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF). By placing such individuals in the new lockdown facility, the county will save a bundle. A night at the PHF costs $2,000. By contrast, a night in the repurposed juvenile hall will cost $500. In the next couple of weeks, county supervisors are slated to hear a progress report from Marian Medical in Santa Maria about plans to convert its now-closed urgent care facility into an institution for mental disease. The project has been the subject of considerable planning and anticipation for nearly five years, and the number of beds reportedly under consideration hovers around 20. Currently, the county spends about $3.5 million a year sending 42 IMD patients to outof-county facilities. Demand for such beds is intense. About five Santa Barbara patients are currently on waiting lists for out-of-county providers, but for every bed space, there are 70-100 qualified patients statewide.

Obamacare. After that, Capps hosted her town hall meetings in churches, hoping to encourage civil discourse. Indivisible soon morphed from social media underground into a flesh-and-blood movement thanks to a three-hour special broadcast by MSNBC’s lefty commentator Rachel Maddow. In Santa Barbara, a couple of filmmakers—Jennie Reinish and Christina Eliason—decided Santa Barbara needed an Indivisible chapter of its own. They teamed up with Laura Smith — a techie, sculptor, Summer Solstice organizer, and paid field operative for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. On January 2, the Santa Barbara chapter had 14 members. Two weeks ago, 185 mostly middle-aged and white people showed up for an organizational meeting. The next day, they packed a scheduled Carbajal press conference, transforming it into a bona fide political pep rally. One of his fieldworkers exclaimed: “We need people shouting into the hurricane.” Indivisible is all about writing and calling one’s congressmember and senators, and showing up for office visits and town hall meetings. They ask yes or no questions. They leave short messages on one—and only one — subject. They share personal stories that are relevant to the issue at hand—the Affordable Care Act, for instance. In Santa Barbara, most Trump Tuesdays have been

To keep Carbajal in office is one thing, she said; to keep Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch off the Supreme Court for two years is quite another. Today, there are about 6,200 Indivisible chapters throughout the United States; Santa Barbara’s boasts about 1,200 members, and that doesn’t include the 80 people who just formed one in Carpinteria. “But there’s a big difference between reacting and organizing,” Eliason believes.“If you’re just reacting, you’ll get burned out. We need to be better at organizing. This has been such an insane month.”

Ban Smoking, Butts Will Follow

A

s a Westsider, psychologist, educator, and mother of two, I urge the city to better regulate outdoor smoking in public places immediately. I do my best to protect my little ones’ safety and health, and we enjoy taking family walks, including on State Street. It is concerning that I cannot protect them from breathing in harmful toxins when people are smoking in public. Secondhand smoke affects so many people walking by (with no way to avoid it). All the scientific evidence unequivocally demonstrates the harmful effects of second- and thirdhand smoke. Further, cigarette butts are a source of pollution and are unsightly. Other cities who have adopted measures restricting public outdoor smoking have found that their policies have been well received and appreciated. I am hopeful that our progressive, healthy, beautiful city follows suit.

undreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children murdered by a privatized war in Iraq; drones built and directed by American companies killing thousands of innocents around the world; indefinite detention of mothers and children sexually exploited by for-profit, ICE-sponsored prisons; massive for-profit exploitation of the sick and disabled by unchecked insurance companies; butchery of unarmed U.S. citizens by hardened, militarized police in the homeland; financial institutions creating and exploiting financial insecurity among U.S citizens; oil company disinformation campaigns that accelerate catastrophic global climate change beyond the point of no return: all this under Obama. If people who mobilized January 21 had mobilized like that when “their man” was in power three, five, eight years ago, we wouldn’t be in this dire situation today. Now you “wake up” under Trump. Great. Glad you did. You know what? Too late. — Martin Schaefer, Lompoc

Mindlessly Wider

P

ublic transportation is much needed to help prevent Santa Barbara from becoming the next overbuilt, traffic-snarled, crime-ridden Los Angeles. The fastest way to turn our town into another L.A. is to keep mindlessly widening Highway 101. As do many studies, UC Davis’s Institute of Transportation Studies’ 2015 traffic report indicates that “transportation experts have repeatedly found that building new roads encourages more people to drive, which in turn negates any congestion savings (from adding highway lanes) — a phenomenon known as ‘induced demand.’ ” Ask anyone who regularly commutes on L.A.’s traffic-snarled, 10-lane Interstate 5 whether adding additional lanes in 2010 eased traffic congestion. They will unanimously tell you that it did not. The answer to easing traffic congestion is not by adding more freeway lanes but by improving public transportation services, designating carpool lanes, and adding bike and pedestrian lanes. Santa Barbara’s environmental community for decades has pressed for slow, planned growth to prevent this predictable traffic nightmare from occurring. However, with every new strip mall, subdivision, and apartment complex built under the banner of “creating jobs and growing the economy” comes the very predictable outcome of traffic congestion. I hope that the citizens of Santa Barbara will continue to support Scott Spaulding’s efforts to bring commuter rail to Santa Barbara.

Michael Alan Vigil was born in Santa Barbara to Phyllis Valdez Vigil and Edward R Vigil on Feb 16 1957. He attended San Roque School, La Colina Jr. High and San Marcos with his life long friend Roger Chackel. Michael enlisted in the Navy in 1975 and served aboard the USS Mobile. He married his first love Kathy Barnett. He and Kathy were blessed with a daughter Haley Dawn, who was the apple of his eye. Anyone who knew him know he was a rabid San Francisco 49’s fan. Michael passed way the morning of Jan 24, 2017 surrounded by his family. His passing leaves a hole in the heart of many.

world, some more than once. Another touchstone in their lives was a bicycling group that ended up not only riding weekly in Santa Barbara, but transporting their tandems to other U.S. states and to Europe for extended rides. A vibrant hostess, Shirley's parties were numerous and imaginative: foods that she made herself, decor she'd collected from her travels, and fun for a wide group of friends. We are deeply grateful for the care and concern shown by Dr. Kurt Ransohoff over the 25 years he acted as John and Shirley's doctor, and also thank oncologist Dr. Mukul Gupta, Hangama Abassi, and the staff at Sansum Cwlinic. Hospice of Santa Barbara and Visiting Nurse and Hospice provided care and support in the last months of Shirley's life. A Celebration of Life is planned for Sunday, February 26 at Cabrillo Pavilion at 1:00. If you so desire, in lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to a charity of your choice. Bon voyage, Shirley.

Shirley Anne Doris (McLellan) Carter died on Thursday, February 9, surrounded by her family in her home. Born in Philadelphia, Shirley grew up in Pasadena. She met husband John Carter at a folk dancing class in Santa Barbara, where, John says, "it all started with her big, brown eyes." They married 7 months later and celebrated their sixtieth anniversary in 2016. Shirley is survived by her loving husband John, daughters Kathi (Mark), Karin (Tom) and Kristin, and grandchildren Matthew and Juna. Shirley had a long career in teaching. At Head Start, Shirley connected with the local Hispanic community through some of her fellow teachers, the beginning of Shirley's love for all the cultures of the world. Shirley found a long-term home at Monte Vista helping children get a memorable start on their school years. The lifelong friends she made through teaching surrounded her with love as she approached the end of her life. The family began traveling early, going to Hawaii when it was considered an exotic destination, visiting Mexico several times, and seeing family in Alaska. Little did anyone know that Shirley's yen to travel would become a major life activity. John and Shirley visited three quarters of the countries of the

father as a gardener, he began working at the post office as a clerk. When he retired in 1978, he was the Officer in Charge for the Goleta Post Office. He was an active member of the Santa Barbara Buddhist Church and served as President of the church. Tom was also actively engaged in the operation of Perry Ranch. He had a large circle of Santa Barbara friends from childhood and was an avid golfer and pinochle player. He and Florence traveled widely after his retirement. In December 2001, Florence suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and became severely disabled. He and various home caregivers took care of her until her death last year. Tom was fortunate to have lived a long and happy life. He remained mentally sharp throughout. In old age his judgment remained as good as ever. He never pushed his advice on others; when requested it was always valued. His kind and gentle nature was supported by a keen and observant intelligence, which informed all his words and deeds. Surviving Tom are his son, Stan, his daughter, Shirley, and his daughter in law, Henri. Tom is also survived by four grandchildren - Kate, Laura, Brandon, and Jason. He requested that there be no memorial service for him. The family will honor this request but will organize a small remembrance with his extended family.

Barbara Louise Swain

Tom Tsunoda was born and raised in Santa Barbara, growing up on the eastside near Franklin school. At that time there was a large Japanese American community in Santa Barbara, and the Tsunoda family were active members of the Santa Barbara Buddhist Church. Tom and his older brother Bori, loved to play in the youth baseball leagues organized by the church. As young boys they also picked oranges at Perry Ranch, a Fillmore property that their father and his partners had developed. He was 22 when WWII broke out, and along with many persons of Japanese descent on the West Coast, he and his family were sent to an internment camp. Like many young men living in the camps, he was given the opportunity to serve in the US Armed Forces. He said yes to this opportunity. Whenever asked, he would explain that he volunteered because he wanted to be able to hold his head up high when the war ended. This decision by him and his contemporaries led to significant contributions to the Allied war effort and made it easier for succeeding generations of Japanese Americans. He served in the ChinaBurma-India theatre of operations as a linguist in the Military Intelligence Service. He was part of the Mars task force whose mission was to operate around and behind enemy lines, to cut off supplies and reinforcements, and to clear the Burma Road. After his discharge from the Army, Tom met Florence Nakano. They had a long distance courtship as he was attending business college in Denver and she was attending college in California. They would see each other when she came home for vacation, playing tennis together and going out for beer afterwards. They married in 1951 and began their life together in Santa Barbara. Their devotion to each other throughout their lives was evident to everyone who knew them. After some years working with his

Louise quietly passed away November 17, 2016, at the age of 87. Born in Longview, WA, she was the second of five children born to Joe and Barbara Marx. As a teenager, her family moved from the “city” to a small rural community of Rice, WA, where they lived on a ranch with no running water and an outhouse. Louise moved to Salem after high school to pursue a business career. She met her husband Dick Swain in Salem and they married in 1952. Dick and Louise celebrated 58 years together before his passing in 2010. The young couple moved to Wenatchee, WA and started their family. They moved again to Spokane to be closer to Louise’s four brothers and their families. In 1964, Dick got a job at Raytheon and the family relocated one last time to Santa Barbara. Louise worked as a legal secretary/ Paralegal for 20 years in Santa Barbara. She was a member of the Santa Barbara Legal Secretaries Association and is a founding member of Channel Cities Legal Assistants Association (now the Santa Barbara Paralegal Association). Louise earned her Paralegal Certificate from the UCSB Extension Paralegal Program in 1982 while working full-time. Louise retired from Schramm and Raddue in 1992 after 16 years in their Probate Department. Although retired, she was never out of the legal loop and regularly lunched with the “legal gals.” In retirement, and spurred by her volunteer work with the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society, Louise began actively researching the Marx and Schweigert families (which took

her research to Odessa, Russia), as well as her husband’s family the Thimmes and Swains (Dick’s namesake being one of the original purchasers of Nantucket Island). A born storyteller like her father, she took writing classes from Adult Ed. and began writing stories of her life on the ranch in Rice, her four brothers, growing up in the 30’s and 40’s, and her life in California. Louise is of a generation that didn’t complain. She worked hard, took care of her family, and lived a bit of the American Dream. She loved her little home on the cul-de-sac with its window in front (so she always knew what was happening on her street) and winter sun in the back to curl up with a good book. In retirement Dick and Louise traveled, played with their grandsons, walked on the Wilcox property, lunched at the Breakwater Restaurant, and enjoyed the fruits of their labor. Louise was an avid reader (something she passed on to her three daughters), and often read books long into the night. She read the newspaper everyday to keep up with the world, scissors in hand to clip an interesting tidbit, a recipe, or an Anne Landers to pass on. She was a dedicated letter writer keeping in touch with family, childhood friends, old neighbors, and those she met along the way. Her home office was filled with 70 years of cards, letters, and later emails (along with boxes of those clippings). She was a generous hostess and welcomed everyone into her home. Louise had a beautiful smile and a cute little giggle, which we miss. She had a lovely singing voice, which was fully discovered and enjoyed by many after her move to Villa Riviera. Even though she suffered short-term memory loss, she lived her last few years with dignity and grace and with a smile on her face. We are so proud of her and miss her dearly. Louise is survived by her daughters Patty (John) Jernejcic of Gig Harbor, WA, Paula (Paul) Ryan and Janet (Marc) Alexander, both of Santa Barbara, grandsons Casey and Connor Ryan, and Jacob Alexander, brothers Jim Marx and John (Lois) Marx, sisters-in-law Betty, Vivian and Jan, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband Dick, her parents, her brothers Joe and Don, and sister-in-law Helen. The family would like to thank everyone at Villa Rivera for all their care, love and support of Louise (and us) during the last five years Mom was in residence there. Words cannot express our gratitude. The family would also like to thank Assisted Caregiver Services, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care, and Doctors Mietus and Uyesaka for their excellent care for Mom. We feel truly blessed that Mom was always surrounded by such compassionate, loving and caring people. A celebration of life will be held March 3, 2017 at Harry’s Plaza Café from 2:00-5:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Louise’s name to Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care or to the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society.

Adios, Trump?

CALIFORNIA FREEDOM? Can’t stand the

thought of suffering through the King Trump presidency? And maybe an equally insufferable second term? And a following presidentking who might be even (horrors!) worse. Well, here’s a legal solution. It’s permanent but not as quick as moving to Canada or some other foreign land where you’d be a “subject” and they talk funny. Here it is: As you read this, there’s a petition drive to make California its very own nation. Yes, free, free at last. The Yes California Independence movement seeks to collect the 585,407 valid signatures required by July 25 to put the issue on the 2018 ballot. It says it’s already got 7,000 volunteers scouring the state for signatures. Should be a snap, maybe, seeing as 8.7 million Californians voted for Hillary Clinton in last November’s presidential election, about 4.3 million more than for Trump. And wouldn’t he love to get rid of those darned voters, along with California’s two senators, both Democrats, and the state’s Democratic majority congressional delegation? But, sorry to say, this is only the first step. And the going gets much tougher. The final step after other major hurdles are jumped is that two-thirds of all states must approve this legal secession. For one thing, Texas, which has flirted with secession in recent years, might be stimulated to start its own exit from

the Union, complicating matters. And who else might want to follow? If California bails, would its liberal mates Oregon and Washington state want to seek nationhood and cling to us for support out there in the big world? Poof! The nation risks falling apart. Abe Lincoln would be horrified. But suppose the dawn of nationhood breaks through. Then what? As usual, be careful what you wish for. Californians would then be responsible for all the financial and other benefits of life with Uncle Sam, like mounting a defense against the world. An army, navy, and a nuclear deterrent, to say nothing of all the other necessities of life in a crazy mixed-up world, would cost a mint. A major price tag, perhaps, for the pleasure of freedom from Washington, D.C., and its current tide of zealots eager to take freedom away. My guess is that the new nation of California might want to make a deal (Trump loves deals) to pay the U.S. to continue a defense

arrangement, just as small cities contract with the county for police and fire. I forgot to mention that even if Californians approve the Yes California initiative next year, that only removes the words in the state Constitution saying that we are an “inseparable” part of the United States and also asks the governor to seek admission to the United Nations. Then there’d have to be a second California election on the key issue: Folks, for keeps, do you want to secede? It’s legal to do so, apparently, as long as a state does it nonviolently, not 1860-style. Then nationhood would depend on that pesky two-thirds vote by other states. What do you think?

prepared for a powerful theatrical experience with the George and Ira Gershwin and DuBose Heyward opera Porgy and Bess on stage at the New Vic. The 1935 pageant of the life and times of impoverished black people on Charleston’s Catfish Row has been praised, criticized, and reworked over the years. But, I feel sure, never sung more movingly. True to most operas, blood flows and hearts break. Porgy (played by Elijah Rock), on crutches, must have his Bess (Karole Foreman) no matter what. But sinful New York City and flashy Sportin’ Life (Frank Lawson) lure her. Despite revisions over the years, the familiar songs remain: “Summertime,”“I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin’,”“It Ain’t Necessarily So,”“Bess, You Is My Woman Now,” and the softly sung “Clara, Clara” requiem. Gershwin spent 11 months composing the original music and nine more orchestrating it, and then struggled with casting. At a Washington, D.C., performance, the actors refused to take the stage unless the theater was desegregated. It was, temporarily.

CITY OF SANTA BARBARA Planning Commission Hearings Regarding the New Zoning Ordinance Thursday, March 2, 2017, 4:00 p.m. and Thursday, March 9, 2017, 4:00 p.m. City Hall, City Council Chambers, 735 Anacapa Street The Draft New Zoning Ordinance (NZO) proposes updates and new formatting for the Zoning Ordinance, which is Title 28 of the City’s Municipal Code. The Zoning Ordinance establishes the zone classifications, permitted uses in each zone, development standards and regulations, and the development review process for the City. Development standards related to growth, such as residential density, and amount of nonresidential growth allowed remain unchanged. The majority of the proposed changes consist of reformatting and modernizing language, and clarifying existing regulations; however, a number of changes to zoning regulations are proposed, including, but not limited to: Zone Designations and Districts: Revising the names and designations of most zones in Title 28 and several in Title 29 (Airport) to be more descriptive of the allowed uses. Three existing commercial zones (C-P, C-L and C-1) are proposed to be combined into one zone (C-R). Area A of the Veronica Meadows Specific Plan is proposed to be rezoned to P-R (Parks and Recreation) with an Open Space designation. Allowed Land Uses: Narrowing the range of allowed uses in the M-1 (Light Manufacturing) zone, allowing neighborhood markets, updating home occupation standards, allowing mobile food vendors on private property, and expanding temporary use regulations. Development Standards: Regarding the number of stories in a building, building separation, setbacks, open yards, allowed encroachments into setbacks and open yard, size of accessory buildings/garages, fences and hedges, nonconforming buildings and uses, and other aspects of property use and configuration. Parking: Standardizing nonresidential parking requirements, including food service uses, parking for change of use, parking for expansions, bike parking, and parking reduction for small residential units. Open Houses Two open houses will be held, so that interested parties may learn more on any topic of interest in the NZO: Saturday, February 18, 2017 Thursday, February 23, 2017 Faulkner Gallery Faulkner Gallery Santa Barbara Public Library, Main Branch Santa Barbara Public Library, Main Branch 10:00am – 1:00pm 11:00am – 2:00pm The Planning Commission Staff Report, which includes the Draft New Zoning Ordinance and additional information regarding this work effort, is available at SantaBarbaraCA.gov/NZO. Planning Commission recommendations will be forwarded to the City Council for its consideration later this year. The legislative actions required include: 1. General Plan Map Amendment to re-designate Veronica Meadows Specific Plan Area A (APN 047-010-064) from Low Density Residential (Max 2 du/ac) to Open Space; 2. Amendment to the Certified Local Coastal Program Implementation Ordinances (SBMC §28.44.250.D); and 3. Amendment to Title 28 (Zoning Ordinance & Zoning Map), Title 29 (Airport Zoning Ordinance & Airport Zoning Map), Specific Plan 9-Veronica Meadows, Title 9 (Public Peace and Safety), Title 22 (Environmental Policy and Construction), Title 27 (Subdivisions), and related Titles of the Santa Barbara Municipal Code (SBMC §28.92.020). The Environmental Analyst has determined that the proposed amendments are implementing actions of the 2011 General Plan and within the scope of the Certified Final Program Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the General Plan. An Addendum to the Certified Final General Plan Program EIR provides documentation of environmental analysis of the proposed amendments under California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

Resistance Works Peaceful Protest Can Be Powerful, but Will It Hold?

D

by Odessa stORk

onald trump is the president of the United States, and the past three weeks have been absolutely disastrous. Two months ago, though, the idea of compromise between Democrats and Republicans was still a probable one. But that idyllic vision is evidently no longer possible. The new wave of alt-right Republicans have decided they would rather live in an alternate reality in which they define what’s true and what’s false, rather than having to interact with Democrats. And Democrats have instead gravitated toward something much more impactful: resistance. Post-election sadness has turned to anger, and from the nationwide women’s marches to relentless protesters occupying airports in response to Trump’s travel ban, Democrats are firm in their resolve to resist President Trump at all costs. History has proved time and time again that anger and motivation channeled into the form of peaceful protest can be a powerful thing, and now is no different. Since his election, President Trump has backtracked or compromised on a number of his brazen, thoughtless declarations the minute any kind of sizeable opposition emerges, whether it be ordinary people or lawmakers telling him he “can’t do” whatever it is he wants to do. Most recently, federal judge James Robart temporarily blocked the entire travel ban. And a couple of weeks ago, when news broke that the Trump administration planned to remove all mentions of climate change from the EPA website, those plans were halted overnight. A formidable backlash hit the administration from many Americans, who insisted the information remain up. Resistance works. But the question is, for how long will Trump’s opponents remain willing to fight for their cause? Democrats are said to have found their leftist version of the Tea

Party movement, but will they sustain this level of passion in resisting the new president and his policies? While on a college-visit trip to New York, I found myself dead center in one of the women’s marches. As I walked through Times Square that day, I was moved to tears. Being surrounded by all different types of people fighting for a common cause made me realize that Trump’s presidency is temporary, but the overflowing light, life, and power brought out by unity and togetherness is forever. But not everyone had similar epiphanies, and for that reason I am worried. Observing the behavior of some young people after Trump’s inauguration, it is clear that hating on Donald Trump has become the trendy thing to do. For each person who attended the women’s marches with passion for the resistance effort, another attended purely on the basis of bandwagon appeal. Sadly, some seemed to want nothing more than a good photo-op. Once the act of rebelling is no longer glamorous, will young people, the driving force, abandon it? Listen close. I’m here to tell you to never fade away. There will be times when hard work and dedication do not succeed. There’s the demoralizing Army Corps eviction notice to a Dakota Access Pipeline protest camp last week. Efforts fail sometimes, but we must keep fighting. Do not lose hope; this is the next four years of our lives. It is each and every one of us who must do everything we can to resist, and resistance can take many forms. Get the word out on social media. Educate those around you. Take to the streets, and be a part of a peaceful protest. Call your elected officials, your senators, urging them to vote against the new administration’s legislation. Do something, and do it with dedication. Because it’s truly all we’ve got.

moxi Make Way for

The Wolf MuseuM of exploraTion

by MiTchell kriegMan

+ innovaTion opens february 25 phoTos by paul WellMan

ump race, build, tinker, listen,

think, but don’t just stand there— make your way down State Street to MOXI, Santa Barbara’s newest museum. Officially known as the Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation, the long-awaited MOXI opens its doors on Saturday, February 25, after more than a quarter century of plotting. Though initially envisioned as a children’s museum, MOXI is not just for kids anymore — its offerings will resonate with “pre-K through gray” Santa Barbarans, and even millennials will love the 21 and Over Nights. When you first walk beneath the Color and Light Mixing Machine, through the towering arched glass doors, it’s immediately clear that the newest addition to the Santa Barbara skyline is not just an interactive, hands-on, educational mecca for all ages—it’s a beautifully designed and executed feast for the eyes. At the foot of the Funk Zone, located between the train station and Hotel Indigo, the three-story tower with the wavy turret topped by a glass and wood pavilion is easy to spot. As part of the $1-a-year lease with the City of Santa Barbara, MOXI must provide experiences for as many people as possible. To do so, the museum has removed all foreseeable physical, financial, and cultural barriers to exploring the science-rich cornucopia inside, so the graphics are bilingual and the staff is incredibly diverse and educated. The exterior was designed by star architect Barry Berkus before his passing. AB Design Studio transformed his original drawings for a conventional children’s museum into a full-fledged, multileveled museum focused on the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) curriculum. Located at 125 State Street, the LEED-certified museum will regularly change and update exhibits to engage on multiple developmental and intellectual levels. It scales up and down, guaranteeing wonder for all ages. The opening marks the culmination of a $25 million capital campaign and more than 25 years of tireless work by volunteers, professionals, and an unusually proactive board of directors that represents energetic new blood in Santa Barbara’s nonprofit scene. The founders are determined to deliver a vital experience to families at every economic level from 100 miles in every direction. “No matter your age, abilities, background, or interest in science, you will find something — hopefully many things — that you will love about MOXI,” said Steve Hinkley, the president and CEO who previously worked for seven years as vice president of programs at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. “MOXI is a place where we promote creative thinking, collaboration, experimentation, hands-on learning, and fun.”

open-ended and guided experiences that include creating your own Vex Robot, a sensor-aided, Lego-like robotic design system that encourages teamwork and science skills and puts your dad’s erector set to shame. Kids can sit all day in a corner of the makerspace, utterly entertained, and never leave. The second floor features Light, Speed, and Interactive Media, including the Muzzy Family Speed Track. Kids and kids at heart will gravitate toward Build It, Test It, Race It, a customizable race track with make-it-yourself racing cars infused by enhanced learning technology that will give you essential data on speed and impact in real time. Wander to the back corner and you’ll find a small black-box theater that will house rotating exhibitions and shows.

There’s lots and lots of technology here, but MOXI is about people, too. The museum has a staff of more than 40 full- and part-time employees as well as nearly 100 volunteers. “For everybody who walks in the door, we have the staff with the training to accommodate their learning needs,” said Ron Skinner, the director of education. The floor staff, known as Sparks, are not conventional museum explainers. They’re thought-provoking guides whose goal is to engage in the learning process.“We want MOXI Sparks to ignite learning by sparking curiosity and creativity,” said Skinner. “Sparks engage with guests through hands-on exhibits, activities, demonstrations, challenges, and games, encouraging guests to experiment, observe, explore, discover, question, make, and design.” “No one’s going to leave because they’re bored, that’s for sure,” said Sean O’Brien, director of exhibits. “Every person is going to have a different experience every time they come here. I guarantee you’re going to be tired by the end of the day and happy.” BIG SOuNd: Gracie Iverson (right, in wheelchair) plays with a giant guitar in the Muller Family Sound Track.

Enabling that continual evolution are the many partnerships that MOXI is forging with schools, businesses, and nonprofits. “Santa Barbara, pound for pound, is an innovative dynamo,” said Hinkley, who will spotlight these partners on the Innovation Wall. “There are world-changing companies right here in Santa Barbara, and MOXI gives them a chance to tell their story.” Dos Pueblos High School’s Engineering Academy is one such partner. “I am really excited that many more young people will be introduced to innovative and creative thinking, exploration, and problem-solving at an early age through the extraordinary opportunity to visit MOXI,” said Amir Abo-Shaeer, the MacArthur “Genius”Award–winning educator who developed the groundbreaking, project-based academy. Other partners include Sonos, InTouch, 20th Century Fox, Curvature, FLIR, Cottage, and Cox Communications. All have either provided significant funding to support an exhibit or donated materials and content. In addition to being open to the general public, MOXI will offer afterschool classes, summer camps, and mobile outreach as well as quarterly after-hours events that will transform the typical museum experience into a themed night out just for adults. MOXI expects to attract more than 100,000 guests in its first year, including Santa Barbara residents, tourists, and approximately 15,000 area schoolchildren.

E.J. Dionne, Jr. Making America Empathetic Again: The Challenges of the Next Four Years Tuesday, February 28 / 8:00 p.m. / FREE Lobero Theatre, 33 E Canon Perdido Street We are a country in which a majority of people who voted for one candidate in 2016 don’t know anybody who voted for the other. We have a president who divided the country in a way that lost him the popular vote but gave him a narrow electoral college victory. A great many Americans are fearful of what his presidency will bring. At the same time, many different kinds of Americans feel shortchanged by an economy that treats different groups in different regions very differently. Are we becoming a nation in which some of us find it impossible to empathize with others among our fellow citizenships – not only when the problems involved are different, but also when they’re similar? And are our religious institutions helping to heal these divides, or are they deepening them?

WE SEE COLORS: Brandon Friggione (left) with daughter Quinn and wife Tiffany check out the Color and Light Mixing Machine.

Nathalie Gensac is especially excited about MOXI’s possibilities. She founded Youth Interactive nearby in the Funk Zone five years ago to help teens develop job skills and creative business ideas. “For the first time, MOXI will enable our communities’ most at-risk youth to merge art and technology with their own creative possibilities,” she said. “There is no doubt this will give these kids an incredible edge as they move onto college and seek employment in the modern workplace.”

MOXI’s impressive trajectory is almost entirely due to the extremely active and engaged board of directors. “My fellow boardmembers include individuals from diverse backgrounds, and they are not just boardmembers in name,” said benefactor Noelle Wolf. “They have rolled up their sleeves. Everyone has been passionately involved.” Said board president Jill Levinson,“We’ve been the actual staff for a long, long time. Up until a few years ago, there was virtually no other staff.” The results are exceeding expectations, even before opening day.“I never imagined MOXI could be this good,” said Nancy Sheldon, co-chair of the building campaign committee with Alixe Mattingly.“I don’t have an imagination so strong that I could have ever imagined it could all come out like this.” They believe that MOXI’s impact may soon extend beyond the museum’s four walls. “I am a firm believer in branding — I’ve done it on television,” said Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, whose multimillion-dollar donation was the single-largest gift to the museum’s capital campaign. “I see the potential with MOXI to be a model for other cities around the country. We can develop the brand and tailor it to other locations, as well.” Most critical to that expansion is how much the exhibits themselves draw visitors into learning.“When you enter MOXI, you enter an environment that will compel you mentally and physically to interact,” said Hinkley. “It is much easier to get the brain to go where the heart is going.”

E.J. Dionne Jr. graduated from Harvard University and received a D.Phil. in sociology from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. Dionne joined the Wasington Post in 1990 and has been writing a column for the Post since 1993. He is a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution and a university professor in the Foundations of Democracy and Culture at Georgetown University, where he teaches in the McCourt School of Public Policy and the Government Department. Dionne analyzes politics weekly on NPR’s All Things Considered and is a regular analyst for MSNBC. He is the author of six books.

in San Diego

’ve become quite familiar with San Diego over the 20 years that my brother has lived there, from late-night college burrito joints (French fries inside!) and dingy dive bars (Pacific Shores!) to the more family-friendly places we now take our kids (cue pandas at San Diego Zoo). But it’s a big city with lots of eclectic ’hoods, leaving plenty new to discover on weekend visits. That’s why we pulled into the Kona Kai on Shelter Island around 11 p.m. on a Friday night, after a strategic post-traffic Santa Barbara departure that let the kids sleep most of the way. The resort is one of the centerpiece properties on this skinny stretch of developed sandbar at the northern end of San Diego Bay, where many locals, like my bro, rarely go. It started as a yacht club of sorts in 1953, became an inn six years later, and was extensively renovated in 2015 by the Noble House

hotel group, which upped the spa, pool, fitness, kayaking, and beach bonfire s’more game. They’re adding dozens more rooms and are proud of the on-site Vessel Restaurant, where we’d later dine on, among other highlights, the porcini-dusted sea bass in a smoked bacon-dijon sauce. For our first morning, we walked the bay-side trail, past the dramatic sculpture dedicated to dead tuna anglers, and onto the fishing pier, where Fathom Bistro bills itself as the “only craft beer bar literally on the water.” Our next stop was meeting up with my brother’s family at the big playground at Liberty Station, a massive former naval facility that’s now home to parks, big-box stores, and lots of smaller businesses, as well. Our real destination— destination indeed, a main reason for the whole trip — was Liberty Public Market, the food hall to end all food halls. Including the next day’s return visit, we enjoyed the following: rajas, beef, and lobster tacos; trio of empanadas; half-dozen oysters; beetroot Reuben; harissa fries; ceviche tostada; spicy tuna roll; four different kinds of chicken sausage; fresh pasta to cook at my bro’s house; ice cream; smoothies; rosé from Baja; grüner veltliner from the Wachau; a gose collab from Evil Twin/Two Roads; and a Kölsch from Thorn Street. We never made it to the Stone Brewing garden next door. Aside from all that eating and the mandatory zoo visit, we ventured to the Cabrillo National Monument at the mouth of the bay. After burning some calories walking along the wave-wracked bluffs — the tide was up, so no tide pools for us — we hit the monument itself, a stark white statue of Juan Cabrillo. He’d later die somewhere around our Channel Islands, but his first taste of what became California was somewhere on the shoals below. As we looked back at the San Diego skyline and pirate-like tall ships cruised by below, I wondered which neighborhood we’d hit up next time. —Matt Kettmann

ith more than 10 inches of much-needed rain soaking Santa Barbara County, it’s time to start thinking about where to go for what could potentially be a spectacular wildflower bloom. The last great bloom was back in 2010, so it’s been a long dry spell, that California drought hanging tough across Santa Barbara’s diversified landscapes. Nevertheless, water is life, so here’s a go-to list of wildflower hotspots, a fleeting burst of color that will surely splash across the islands, mountains, sand dunes, and front-country canyons come late March into April.

Anacapa Island: There will be island flora blooming across the entire northern chain, but for some concentrated color, head to the second smallest isle in the Channel Islands National Park. The bright, yellow flowers of the California native coreopsis can be seen from miles away while you’re being transported by the Island Packers ferry. Mixed in with the annual herb are Indian paintbrush, blue dicks, and yarrow. Guadalupe – Nipomo Sand Dunes National Wildlife Refuge:

Hidden in the West Coast’s largest, most intact coastal dune ecosystem are wildflowers that endure stinging sand and howling northwest winds, but eventually they help fortify the shifting dunes in northern Santa Barbara County. Look for beach sand verbena, silver lupine, beach morning glory, beach evening primrose, and Indian paintbrush. Occasionally found in the deep dune troughs are coreopsis. Figueroa Mountain: It’s not certain what is more astounding: the sight of the vast bushels of bush lupine that cluster the steep slopes of Figueroa Mountain or its thick, fragrant scent that pours across the entire San Rafael Range. Whatever it is, when it’s going off, Figueroa Mountain is one of the best wildflower locales in Southern California. Equally stunning are the chocolate and Mariposa lilies, goldfields, and wallflowers. Just northwest of Figueroa is Grass Mountain. When there’s an eye-popping bloom, a vast carpet of California poppies can be easily seen sweeping across its broad slope from highways 101 and 154. — Chuck Graham

FIGUEROA FLORA: When it’s going off, Figueroa Mountain and its neighbor, Grass Mountain, are some of the most spectacular displays of wildflowers in California.

DOS PUEBLOS AT SANTA BARBARA HIGH: Stung by a 51-40 loss to Dos

lasted No. 3 Westmont in overtime, 64-57.Westmont (21-3, 10-2) is now two games behind Vanguard (24-1, 12-0) in the Golden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) standings. “I don’t know … we seemed tight,” Westmont coach Kirsten Moore said.“We wanted it so bad.” Layups and free throws attained a high degree of difficulty, as the Warriors missed several of both in the final minutes of regulation. Thanks to their defense, which blunted Vanguard’s high-scoring attack (78.7 points per game), the game went into overtime with the score tied, 49-49. After the visitors forged a 59-54 lead, Westmont senior Cora Chan hit a three-pointer, and a foul away from the ball gave the Warriors an opportunity to tie the score on a rare five-point play. But both of Aimee Brakken’s charity shots clanked, and Vanguard scored the last five points. Claire Lamunu, a 61 senior from Uganda, played like a lioness for Vanguard, scoring 25 points and taking 11 rebounds. Westmont junior Lauren McCoy scored 16 points, and Moore had high praise for Chan, who had 12 points and four assists while giving up just one turnover: “She was fantastic. She played to win.” The Warriors will play the Lions in Costa Mesa next Tuesday (Feb. 21) and may see them again in the GSAC Tournament.

Pueblos in January, the Dons’ girls caught fire early in last Monday’s game and won going away, 65-44. Providing the spark was Alondra Jimenez. The 56 junior point guard made her first appearance on the court since last March after rehabbing from her second ACL injury. Jimenez, wearing a brace on her right knee, made her first shot, a three-pointer. “Everybody went crazy,” said Cassandra Gordon, who had shouldered the playmaking duties in Jimenez’s absence. “She’s just a super player,” Santa Barbara coach Andrew Butcher said of Jimenez. “She gets the ball to the right person at the right time.” LIONS’ DEN: Westmont’s 56 playmaker Cora Chan The right person in this game was looks for an opening in Vanguard’s defense, anchored junior guard Kristen Sullivan, who by 64 New Zealander Tania Uluheua (30).

f you’re like me, there’s a certain glimmer —some may call it a haze—to those college days of Isla Vista in the 1990s, when you could do whatever you wanted in Anisq’Oyo’ Park (in front of the cops!) while jam bands played and wander Del Playa without worry so long as your cup was upside down. And amid many sensory memories — the slight stank served alongside burgers at Isla Vista Brewing Co., the greasy cheese-meats of New York Hero House, the crisp bacon and cool lettuce of a Javan’s #10 sandwich—one stands the test of time (and is still actually served): Freebirds’ BBQ Chicken Burrito, once the calling card of this national chain that was founded in I.V. in 1987. (This location isn’t part of that chain, apparently.) Today’s Gauchos probably have no idea that this was once the primary way to ingest these pickyour-ingredient burritos, nor may they realize that the now super-popular monster-sized nachos weren’t even on the menu way back when. And I’m all for low-carb options, but let’s not get started on the “bowls.” For those in the know, or at least in the nostalgia, the star is still that somewhat sweet, slightly spicy, always savory sauce sensation of yesteryear. Throw in some chunk chicken, pinto beans, yellow cheese, and whatever else you like, and let your taste buds — Matt Kettmann keg-stand like it’s 1999.

he Club doesn’t serve a club sandwich — the atavistic, multi-bread-layered favorite of our forefathers —and that’s a huge hint about what’s up at UCSB’s recently renovated oncampus restaurant/hotel/conference facility. Formerly known as the Faculty Club (note today’s more inclusive name), the new menu, which is available to the public at lunch, proudly explains: “The Dining Room at the Club & Guest House is committed to procuring local tastic,” said Cooper. “Our hotel guests hold a gorgeous and organic product whenever possible, and promot- sunset most nights.” ing sustainability and environmentally friendly pracCooper’s cooking career began in Los Angeles, so tices at UCSB.” So while you can still get garlic herb her role as UCSB’s senior executive chef for residential fries on the side (thank you, carb gods), the main might dining is a SoCal homecoming of sorts.

long-awaited restaurant is now open at Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company in Buellton. Appropriately called The Kitchen @ FigMtnBrew, the menu offers such gastropub fare as a breakfast burger (bacon and eggs), a fried chicken sandwich, tacos, salads, and more. Additional dessert and kids’ menus make sure there is something for everyone. Nonalcoholic drinks and wine are also available in addition to the full list of craft beer, beer cocktails, and cask beers. The new kitchen is located on the bottom floor of the two-story brewery with a counter for customers to order directly from the kitchen. The seating is open, and servers bring your meal directly to you.“We wanted to provide top-notch food with great prices,” said GM Jeff Hawxhurst. “The casual environment helps us keep prices affordable while offering fresh, farm-to-table cuisine.” They also take the farm-to-table approach one step further.“Our brewery actually gives our spent grain to a local farm who then feeds it to their cattle,” explained Executive Chef Brian Champlin. “We are then able to serve the local beef on our menu. It’s a sustainable cycle that ensures we know what’s in our food and where it is coming from. We call it ‘brewery-to-farmto-table’ cuisine.” With a background in both catering and restaurants, Champlin was most recently co-owner and executive chef of Succulent Café in Solvang, where he focused on made-from-scratch cuisine. He continues that style at The Kitchen @ FigMtnBrew with his own sauces, such as the Dragon Sauce for their carne asada tacos. The restaurant is open daily, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Call 694-2252 x110 or visit figmtnbrew.com. 718 STATE UPDATE: Readers Annie and Louie

Goleta, known for being the home of The Natural Café, was sold last year. The same family had owned 5892 Hollister Avenue property since the 1930s. I’ve reported that it will be an Asian fusion restaurant. Reader Christine and others let me know that the name will be Gimeal Café. LEONARDO’S OPENS: Reader Mary tells

me that Leonardo Ristorante & Pizzeria has opened at 632 Alamo Pintado Road in Solvang at Nielsen’s Plaza. ALDO’S REALLY IS GONE: Readers have been

telling me that Aldo’s at 1031 State Street is gone and the phone number has been disconnected, yet a sign at the restaurant says they are only closed for a remodel. Reader Matthew let me know that Craigslist has cleared things up with the following posting: “Liquidation Sale! 1031 State Street: Refrigeration Equipment, Cooking & Ventilation Equipment, Flatware, Cutlery, Drinkware, To Go Supplies, Industrial Espresso Machine, Cushioned Dining Chairs, Patio Chairs With Optional Cushions, Round And Square Tables, Industrial Microwaves, and much more.” ISABELLA MOVES: Reader Steve H. tells me that Isabella Gourmet Foods has closed its East Figueroa Street/La Arcada Court location and reopened inside The Honey B café, upstairs in the Antioch building at 602 Anacapa Street. GROCERY OUTLET UPDATE: Reader Steve

H. tells me that the Grocery Outlet has made it official that it is coming to the old Ralphs location at 2840 De la Vina Street by posting a large sign that reads “Future home of Grocery Outlet bargain market.” HONOR BAR TO-GO: This just in from reader Annie: “Restaurant Connection is now delivering from Honor Bar and Honor Market! I’ve been waiting so long for this.” PROPERTY FOR SALE: The land that is the

home of The Daily Grind’s second location is listed for sale on LoopNet. To be clear, it is not the business that is for sale but the property itself at 2912 De la Vina Street.

iron Curtain Wines @ european deli Market For years, I’ve been driving by the European Deli Market where Modoc Road runs into Hollister Avenue in Noleta, and always wondered what obscure Old World treasures it held inside. When I heard they had an array of Eastern European wines, I was soon parking my bicycle outside to fill my backpack with the most promising bottles I could find. Though some use familiar grapes, such as pinot noir or cabernet sauvignon, I aimed for grapes I had never (or rarely) heard of, so as to capture the native flavors of countries that lived for decades behind the Iron Wall. But I also avoided off-dry and semi-sweet wines, trying to find the mostly dry styles I prefer. The results, ranging in price from just $8 to $11, were quite impressive. I’d expected at least some dusty funkiness or some bland flavors, as might occur from regions without the latest technology that must ship wines across the world, only to sit on grocery store shelves for years. There was none of that. The bottle of Marani, from Georgia’s saperavi grape, showed cedar, black cherry fruit, and leather on the nose, very Old World. The Casa Panciu, from Romania’s băbească neagă, had softer fruits of strawberry and red plum, with neagă touches of cola and caramel, more New World in style. And the Armenia wine (the brand appears to be the country’s name), made from 95 percent areni and five percent hakhtanak, was bright and refreshing, as well, if slightly less interesting than the others. —Matt Kettmann

DaviD CassiDy D in s.B. Dy sidy said. People ask him what it’s like, and he doesn’t know what to say. “I’ve been doing it so long, it’s like breathing. I don’t know what another reality would have been. I’m just living mine, and it’s been quite extraordinary.” His show at the Granada will be “a map of where and how it began, and how now, in 2017, I’m going to say good-bye to touring.” It will be something of a homecoming for Cassidy, who lived in Montecito in 1976 with then-wife Kay Lenz. “If I ever move back to California, S.B. is the only place I would consider living. I truly love it there,” he said. He lived on an 11.6-acre Spanishhacienda-style property with a few horses, and remembers having great times at Joe’s in the late ’70s in his getaway home from the L.A. bustle. The years have a tinge of pain now, as he looks back on the marriages that didn’t work out. “I made very poor choices when it came to relationships. I’m not real good at it; I just never have been,” he said. But in all, it’s been a great life on the road. “I just can’t tour anymore. I know it’s time. I’ve done it at the highest level. I’ve been embraced by millions and millions and millions of people all over the world,” Cassidy said. See him at the Granada for one last chance to cherish his work live in person. Cassidy plays Sunday, February 19, 7 p.m., at the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.). Call 899-2222 or visit granadasb.org. granadasb.org

ing grown up in a family that was doubly musical and theatrical, “I had no intention of pursuing my career as a musician or as a singer,” he said. He credits his father for influencing him “enormously” on the professional front, with work-ethic adages such as “You never show up late,”“You never take a shitty job for money when you know it’s crap,” and “The only thing that survives is talent.” The grueling tour schedule “was so emotionally and physically demanding, but I never resented it. People thought I hated it; I never did. I’ve had phenomenal opportunities with who I’ve gotten to work with, on every level, some of the greatest musicians in the world,” Cas-

three’s a Festival at SBCAST Three is the magic number on Sunday, February 19, when SBCAST (S.B. Center for Art, Science and Technology) will host its first-ever 3-Minute Film Festival. With a schedule of 18 films from all over the world, it’s a celebration of compact renderings of cinematic forms, perfectly sized statements in a mediascape of YouTube channels and Twitter feeds. Coming just a week after the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, it’s something like a palate-cleansing petit four course following the larger cinematic feast of the previous weeks. Festival director and SBCAST curator Lynn M. Holley put out a call for three-minute works made within the last three years and falling into one of three categories: narrative, documentary, and experimental. Holley views the short films as concise expressions in tune with our increasing need for communication speed. “It comes down to tweeting and texting,” she said. “I think it’s

harder to sit through longer films now unless they’re super good.” But what’s more, she said, this style of filmmaking asks creators to sharpen and condense their craft akin to a poem for a novelist, and it’s a great format for young Sundream filmmakers. The festival will showcase live-action and animated shorts from countries such as Iran, Italy, Japan, and Romania, as well as three area films. Highlights include a pair of S.B. student films created through the Dance on Camera Mentorship with student dancer/filmmakers from the 2016 Arts Fund Mentorship Program, one of which will feature live music by Freya Phillips and Curran McCrory to a piece arranged by student producer Allie Cole, and another by a Ukrainian exchange student in her second year at Anacapa High School.

“The two films are brimming with vitality and mystery and set at the shore, which has its own significance,” said mentor Robin Bisio. The festival will conclude with a longer piece, the 10-minute Till Human Voices Wake Us, starring Lindsay Lohan and preceded by a reading of T.S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” after which the film is named. In all, it will be a short, sweet showcase of stimulating cinema. For more information, see 3minutefilmfestival .com. —RD

ife has been one long, incredible journey for David Cassidy, and no one knows it better than the man himself. His show at the Granada Theatre this Sunday, February 19, will be a special one, as it will be the last one he ever plays on the West Coast. “This is the thing I love to do the most, but I just got to a point that my body, after 49 years, was beat up by working and traveling and touring from all over the world,” said the Partridge Family idol, who has arthritis. “But I still have a fire in my gut for it.” That fire was stoked from a very early age for the pop sensation, whose life has been the inspiration behind many a biopic and behind-the-scenes retrospective. He knew as young as 3½ years old the destiny that lay ahead, when he saw his parents perform in a matinee when they lived in Manhattan.“It changed my life because I knew exactly what I wanted to do: go back to New York and work for a theater company, get an agent, and start going to auditions, and that’s exactly what happened,” said Cassidy, whose career really took off after a casting director invited him to audition in L.A. In a quick matter of time, he found himself playing Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” for a little pilot with the working title The Family Business. Things didn’t exactly go as expected, and the unbelievable whirlwind that followed, with Cassidy vaulted to then-unprecedented levels of teen adoration, was totally unintended. Though he knew he could sing, hav-

Perhaps no band has been more responsible for reviving traditional Irish music worldwide than The Chieftains, who have spread the storied sounds of their Emerald Isle not just around this world but even beyond its orbit. In 2013, The Chieftains performed with Canadian astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield, who played acoustic guitar from the International Space Station along with a band, and two years prior, Irish astronaut Cady Coleman played an antique wooden flute and a shiny pennywhistle in space, donated to her by The Chieftains. Yet there is no removing The Chieftains and their founder, Paddy Moloney, from their sense of place, no matter how many miles their sounds have traveled. When I spoke with Moloney on the phone, he was in his home in the mountains of Glendalough, and he spoke of how the spirit for traditional Irish music swells strongly in the town of his youth. “Young musicians are coming up all the time, playing the music that we used to played all around the parish,” he said, where it’s “still vibrant and the people are wonderful” not far from the dreamy green hills of Luggala, “the most beautiful place in the world.” Though they’ve toured many times, after all these years, he said, there is no snuffing out the fire for Irish music burning in Moloney. “If it’s in you, it’s in you,” he said. “It’s one of the great folk arts of the world. It’s thought for the mind, nourishment for the soul, and food for the stomach.” This tour will see the band “getting more into the poetry side of things,” with recitations of poetry set to music, including works by John Montague — the recently passed-away author whom Moloney considers “the greatest Irish poet of all.” Moloney feels Irish music could help bring the world greater peace. “The world is a small place, with so much violence and twisted minds … I wish to God they could all get a tin whistle and a songbook and have a good time. The world would be a happier place.” The Chieftains play Tuesday, February 21, 8 p.m., at the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.). Call 899-2222 or visit granadasb.org. —RD

F

ew childhood memories compare to the experience of sharing a well-loved picture book. First, there’s the settling in process, as child and reading partner find a comfortable way to sit that allows both to see the book. From this intimate point of departure, the pair takes off on an imaginative journey that’s guided by whatever is on the page but is certainly not limited to it. The book becomes a point of departure, a place from which child and adult leap together into a world that is as much a place they make as it is one they perceive. In the impressive new exhibit David Wiesner & the Art of Wordless Storytelling at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA), one of the preeminent figures in contemporary picture book making gets a show that explores the process and the influences behind his powerfully fertile imagination. As the exhibit’s title indicates, Wiesner operates beyond illustration in a territory that’s primarily defined by what can be told through images alone. Among his three Caldecott Award winners, for example, only his sublimely surreal take on the tale of The Three Pigs (2002) employs the traditional composite art of images complemented by words on the page. The other two Caldecott winners, Tuesday (1992) and Flotsam (2007), deliver their stories without recourse to written language. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and a prolific artist in multiple media since early childhood, Wiesner blends the wide-eyed enthusiasm of a kid who loves comic books with the educated sensibility of an art historian and the craftsmanship of a technical illustrator or a precisionist painter. His heroes include Charles Sheeler and Salvador Dalí, but he also learned a lot from the artists at DC Comics and from Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng, the animators behind Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner. In practice, Wiesner often harnesses his command of technique and delight in intricate detail to ideas that resist or even shatter

the fourth wall of the conventional picture plane. His version of The Three Pigs offers a particularly bold example of this tendency. In the opening pages, the wolf pursues the first of his victims, the pig who builds his house with straw, until we reach the standard and, for the pig at least, catastrophic first plot point, when the wolf’s huffing and puffing ordinarily results in a blown-down house and an eaten-up pig. That’s not how things go in Wiesner’s version, however. His straw-house pig scrambles across the edge of the picture frame and escapes the wolf by exiting the representational schema in which he originated. The technical execution of straw pig’s transition is dazzling and adds an irreducible element of visual pleasure to the conceit. Inside the old frame, where the wolf lives, the pig’s hind end is flat and strongly bounded by a dark black line. Outside the frame, the rest of his piggy body is rounded, textured, and deliciously fleshy. Over the course of the next dozen page turns (the page turn being the fundamental discursive unit of the picture book), the three pigs take a merry jaunt through a surreal space that’s neither in nor entirely out of the book. The image of three giddy pigs flying on a paper airplane that’s been folded out of a page from the book they are in has an M.C. Escher–like audacity, but the blank pages that follow go where even Escher feared to tread. I fear I have overemphasized what’s clever about the work at the expense of its extreme charm and vitality. There is one certain corrective, and I recommend it to everyone. Get to the SBMA (1130 State St.) for the David Wiesner show, and if you really want to enjoy it, take some children. They will show you how wordless storytelling works and what fun it can be. David Wiesner & the Art of Wordless Storytelling shows through May 14. — Charles Donelan


MOUTHFULS OF ART: Sharks of all colors and sizes cover the walls at Breakfast Culture Club, where Lorien Stern’s ceramic carnivores commingle with coffee drinkers.

a

rt is … a ceramic shark head? In a town where art can be stuck in old styles and definitions, a polka-dotted, smiling ceramic shark, emerging in relief from the white wall of an art gallery, can be an energizing, palate-cleansing, even eyeopening experience. Lorien Stern, a former Ojai resident now residing in the Mojave Desert, specializes in refreshing. Her wall-spanning array of 23 shark heads, ranging from baby sharks to big, imposing ones with a few hammerheads thrown in for good measure, are an immediately engaging, delightfully intriguing magnum opus of ceramic construction. If you’re afraid of sharks, there’s probably nowhere safer to be than the Mojave Desert. Nonetheless, Stern found herself contemplating sharks. Naturally fearful of them, she discovered a way through her art to disarm her fear. The underlying theme of her work is to find the harmony in life that makes unhappy, disturbing images approachable. She accomplishes her goal by combining a lollipop sense of color with streamlined composition and shape. The work is amusingly displayed at the perfect gravity-defying height that summons the image of a shiver of sharks — yes, that’s the term for a group of sharks — stealthily emerging through the gallery walls. Stern lives in a desert playland and art factory called The Land, her family’s 40-acre property on the northern tip of the Mojave Desert. The property is a repository for boats, an old fire engine, an army truck, a big rig, tractors, motorcycles, and trailers, all in various states of function and repair. Dad was a jeweler and specialized in energy and alchemy — the perfect heritage for a trans-

former of sharks. After he passed away, his stuff was stored in a number of wrecked cars scattered around the property. Stern can walk out into the desert, open a rusty car door, and find a trove of childhood memorabilia and relics from her dad. The Land is surrounded by ghost towns and is famous for its proximity to the Trona Pinnacles, weird drip castle rock formations produced hundreds of years ago when the Mojave was an ocean. Innumerable shark teeth have been found at various sites in the desert sands. Stern works in the dry 118-degree heat. She set up a screen-printing studio and a music room inside an old double-wide trailer and a ceramics studio inside a shipping container that once functioned as a military control room. As she manufactures her work “Ice Cream,” her pet duck follows behind. The gallery at Breakfast Culture Club at 711 Chapala Street is one of the few well-designed multi-use galleries in Santa Barbara. A selfproclaimed clubhouse for creative people, it’s filled with curated retail, surfboards, specialty books, and an innovative, well-thought-out plan for the presentation of new artists. A recent group show was very popular and sold remarkably well. The art gallery and café have a unique creative vibe that allows for longerduration shows of art including photography and, well, sharks. Stern’s work, with its themes of discomfort and fear transformed into goofy approachable objects, is shown to great effect at Breakfast. Inspired by the clarity of the midnight stars and super sharp lines of the desert, she skillfully executes engaging, irresistible concepts in her lighthearted, emotive work. — Mitchell Kriegman independent.com

UCSB PreSentS Lydia

Play Tells of Mexican-American Family’s Struggles with Life in America

t

here are as many unique stories and spe-

cific points of view regarding the “American dream” as there are people living in the United States. The UCSB Department of Theater and Dance’s production of Octavio Solis’s Lydia weaves one account of cultural experience into narrative in its portrayal of a Mexican-American family in El Paso struggling to consolidate the expectations of life in America with the realities. Directed by Irwin Appel, Lydia tells one story of life in a country that cannot always live up to its promises of liberty and justice for all. After a car accident leaves 15-year-old Ceci Flores in a vegetative state, her family hires a maid and caretaker to aid in her recovery. The maid, Lydia, an undocumented immigrant from across the border, develops an unexpected connection with the teenager that shapes the family’s experience of loss. Director Appel related the play to the tradition of “the ambitious, epic tragedy of the American family,” in the vein of works by Eugene O’Neill, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, and Lorraine Hansberry. Appel called the play charged and intense, and he said it speaks to issues of sexuality, forbidden love, disability, immigration, and the very roots of familial dysfunction. Much of playwright Solis’s work reflects the Mexican-American experience. Appel, who selected the play for production, was struck by Solis’s lyrical style after seeing another of his plays, El Paso Blue, at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Lydia exemplifies Solis’s poetic tone with the implementation of nonlinear storytelling and elements of the fantastic that blur the boundary between the

Verenice Zuniga (left) and Oliver Rubey tangible and the intangible. An exploration of family that forces private moments into view, Lydia gives the audience access to the characters’ thoughts and dreams. Ceci’s experience, for example, is communicated to the audience despite her limited physical state. Lydia will be produced in the round to emphasize the persistent claustrophobic atmosphere of this struggling family living in close quarters. Much of the action relates to the care of Ceci, who’s confined to a hospital bed onstage. This immediate and pressing familiarity with the characters’ private lives plunges the audience to the depths of intimacy with the Flores family. Appel, who is also the sound designer for this show, described Lydia as a story with the conviction and energy recognizable in the music of the late ’60s/early ’70s; Appel has composed the original music heard onstage. Featuring performers from the BFA, Lydia runs February 17-26 at UCSB’s Performing Art Theater. There will be talkbacks with the cast and director after each Saturday matinee.

O

n the lookout for something sumptuous to spice up date night? The Comic Strippers, Canada’s premier traveling striptease troupe, has an intriguing suggestion for you: improv comedy at the Lobero! After last year’s successful,“sexy-larious” tour through Santa Barbara, The Comic Strippers, a male stripper parody and improv comedy show, return for a night of fab flab (and very little ab). Lighthearted and high-energy, this show offers audiences unscripted double entendre and negligible nudity. Performer Roman Danylo, who’s had a full career as a stand-up comedian and improv artist, swears there are two things a comic can do onstage for a guaranteed laugh: dance like an idiot and remove articles of clothing. For this reason, gyratIncLudeS improv laughs ing and stripping — such outlandish and atypical acts in everyday society — are a by Maggie Yates perfect foundation for a parody about male “sensual performance artists.” Danylo said that while the word “stripper” may concern some sensitive viewers, this evening of spoofy burlesque is more Chris Farley than Patrick Swayze. The impromptu singing, joking, dancing, and shirt removing provide a good-natured evening of non-seedy innuendo. The Comic Strippers teasingly refer to themselves as having “comedy bodies.” Danylo was emphatic about the lack of fitness regimen that informs these characters — the running joke with these guys is that they may (or may not) drop and force out one push-up to “buff up” pre-show. So if you’re looking for Channing Tatum, you’ll have to look elsewhere. The cast of The Comic Strippers includes Canadian stand-up comedians Roman Danylo, Ken Lawson, Chris Casillan, and David Milchard (whom you may recognize from “Convos with My 2-Year-Old” and Haters Back Off). After two years of touring with this show, the performers have built upon their original concept and refined the performance. The Comic Strippers is a fully realized piece with characterization and narrative arcs that more strongly support the improvised jokes. For instance, one of the strippers is a newbie, and the show follows his induction into the fold — he learns the ropes from the veteran stripper (who’s been in the troupe for 43 years) and gains a worldlier viewpoint from the foreign-exchange stripper from another county. This is all in good fun, of course, and the evening is packed with over-the-top dancing, ridiculous slapstick, and unscripted, prompt-based entertainment. Be ready: Improv comedy demands audience interaction!

LUCIDITY’S LAST: The year 2017 also sees the final chapter of the Lucidity Festival, the consciousness-expanding psychedelic music and arts festival of life and spirituality where ancient oak trees meet EDM, dubstep, and folk music. For one last time, the Live Oak Campground (4600 Hwy. 154) will be ablaze with breakbeats and breakthroughs from Friday-Sunday, April 7-9. Back in 2012, Lucidity introduced the world to a festival unlike any other: a festival staged in six parts, told across six years of revelry following the path of the Hero’s Journey as laid out by mythologist Joseph Campbell. Now in its final year, the festival centers around the theme of Eudaimonia, a Greek philosophical concept meaning “the good composed of all goods,” said Alison Hensley, Lucidity’s Food and Sustainability Department head. With the rites of spring just kicking in around then, with the hills gloriously alive with wildflowers, it shall be the perfect weekend to celebrate human flourishing, as Eudaimonia encourages us to unite in a fractious era. “Whether it’s folky singer/songwriters or banghra-electronic-funk-fusion, we want to amplify the idea that great music is a unifying force,” said James Spektrum, one of the booking managers for Lucidity. As positive impacts go, Lucidity has brought positivity to a lot of lives. Though I have yet to experience it myself, I know many have found it to be akin to a Burning Man in its cosmic crossroads nature. For those who have frequented the lucid fest, or for those who have always been curious, this April will give you one last chance to feel the good vibes and the higher power of music. THE RIGHT STUFF: Meanwhile, over at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.), Dennis Quaid & the Sharks will take a bite out of Friday night, February 17, with soul-surfing, fun-loving rock ’n’ roll and country soul.You can expect a mix of covers and originals from the actor/musician, who has recently shown great Fortitude on television while he also helped to let us know A Dog’s Purpose on the silver screen. Here, your purpose as much as theirs will be to have a great time, and all signs point to your purpose being fulfilled. TEAR IT AWAY NOW: Also at SOhO, the night before, The Tearaways will tear it up for the good of Dos Pueblos High School’s (DPHS) Instrumental Music Program with a fundraising concert. The band’s vocalist and guitarist John Finseth remembers playing in the school’s Greek Theatre when he himself was a student at DPHS and said there are few things more important than music education. He should know—their band has, somewhat improbably, gone on to be honorary Liverpudlians, no doubt the kind of experiential education that makes for a good lifetime.

For a couple of years, Just Play Music was the only record store in town after Morninglory closed and before Warbler set up shop. It was also a rocking refuge for music fans like myself, where in its dimly lit, black-walled interiors one could feel in a musical little world apart from the drab commerce lining the blocks. Though the vibe there seemed perhaps a bit cryptic at times, as author to the column named Positively State Street, I do declare that Just Play impacted State Street positively, from their awesome storefronts to their deep (if sometimes expensive) selection of albums, posters, T-shirts, DVDs, and odds and ends galore, and many musical frontiers were opened up for me there. It was a small shrine to not just music but music cultures, where rock-god veneration was the belief of choice. Alas, business models come and business models go, and technologies, inevitably, change. Farewell, Just Play, and thanks for the music.

It feels so good to have your blood run through my veins!” The camaraderie had audience members giggling with embarrassment and joy and conjured memories of singing songs around a campfire on warm summer nights. The blues-inspired Americana artist had more to offer than just foot-tapping tunes; he shared stories of his grandparents, falling in love with a communist girl from Eastern Europe, and his friend who survived a form of melanoma cancer that has only a 5 percent survival rate.

Thursday night. “I’m not gonna fool anyone anymore.” It was a show worthy of a much bigger crowd, but doting couples and friends gathered for the early dinner program and reveled in House’s captivating acoustic set. Though not universally known, House does have his die-hard fans; two young girls, presumably sisters, wearing matching sweaters from the merchandise table and a man who drove from L.A. just to see him play were in attendance. House encouraged the crowd to sing along even if they didn’t know

Several adaptations, including the revision by preeminent African-AmeriPresented by Ensemble Theatre Company. At the New Vic, Sat., can dramatist Feb. 11. Shows through Feb. 26. Suzan-L or i Par k s c u rrently onstage at Ensemble Theatre, have served to make the production more palatable to modern audiences (and more feasible for smaller theater companies to produce). Beyond the fascinating social implications of Porgy and Bess, Ensemble’s production (directed by Jonathan Fox) makes clear the true appeal of this theatrically rendered folk opera: the music. Performed at the New Vic by

a five-piece jazz ensemble and an impressive cast, Porgy and Bess is a bluesy slow dance through a late-summer romance between crippled beggar Porgy (Elijah Rock) and hustler-turned-housewife Bess (Karole Foreman). The narrative isn’t founded in gritty realism — instead, Porgy and Bess is movement poetry that enhances a very engaging (and very attractively produced) musical melodrama. The only inexplicable design element is the choice to set the piece in the late 1960s. Beyond a series of civil-rights-era photographs pre-show, there was little substantial to tie the play to the period, making the gesture seem like a disclaimer to deter perception of the show as racist or insensitive. There is good work happening in Ensemble’s Porgy and Bess— work that need not be preempted with a thinly disguised trigger warning. — Maggie Yates

The most affecting moment of the evening unfolded over an invented-language version of Ravel’s Boléro, commissioned to include inflections of African dialects—a nod to the international scope of the company’s cast. Through clouds of all-purpose flour, each artist took turns contorting words and limbs into physical and intimate monologues before collectively dashing over to the oven to pull out the pièces de résistance: fragrant loaves of banana bread to share with a ravenous audience. — Ninette Paloma

his thoroughly satisfying program revealed the Santa Barbara Symphony at its strongest, offering both refined, powerful renditions of two important works from the standard repertoire and a West Coast premiere of a sparkling new concerto for clarinet by At the Granada Theatre, composer Jonathan Leshnoff, a favorSun., Feb. 12. ite of maestro Nir Kabaretti’s. The opener, the Symphony No. 8 in B Minor, D. 759 (“Unfinished”) by Franz Schubert, contains some of the most masterful writing in the history of orchestral composition. Even without a full complement of four movements, Schubert’s “Unfinished” makes a bold and paradoxically complete statement. Kabaretti coaxed a relaxed yet deliberate performance from his musicians, and the second movement, in particular, flowed with an inexorable momentum that showed what Schubert was capable of adding to the legacy of Beethoven.

Contemporary composer Leshnoff’s Concerto Grosso served as his introduction to the Santa Barbara Symphony when Nir Kabaretti commissioned the work from him for the orchestra’s 60th anniversary season in 2013. In this return engagement, we heard a new composition that was co-commissioned by Santa Barbara and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The Clarinet Concerto made an exceptionally good vehicle for the virtuosity of Donald Foster, who romped through the syncopated passages with brio, extending an invitation to the orchestra to join in the jaunty exuberance of Leshnoff’s score. After intermission, the orchestra returned for Aaron Copland’s Third Symphony, a somewhat bombastic effort that concludes with the overly familiar strains of the Fanfare for the Common Man. It’s American music with a bit of a chip on its common shoulder, but the symphony did a marvelous job of bringing it home, and I’m sure that for many it was a highlight. — Charles Donelan

LION

THIS...is a GREAT Film! 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) Fiesta 5 Fifty Shades Darker (115 mins., R) Maybe it was the change in directors or the significantly better chemistry between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) that made this sequel more enjoyable than the first. Still, however, the 50 Shades film franchise fails to capture any sort of authentic emotion because of its unrealistic circumstances, like how Grey survives a helicopter crash at Mt. Hood and returns home the same night. While it was great to see Steele stick up for herself more, this film offers hardly any insight or clarity into why she decides to stay with a man who attempts to control her. Yes, we do learn more about Grey’s past and why he is the way he is, but it’s still difficult to sympathize with him because his backstory is too complex to understand unless you’ve read the book. I would see 50 Shades Darker for its steamy, erotic sex scenes and large romantic gestures, but be prepared for two hours of dull, meaningless drama. (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) Paseo Nuevo

O Rings

The original remake of The Ring was one of the scariest American movies of its time — that unnerving, surreal video, that black-haired girl. Of course, something so scary could only be further monetized, and Rings returns 15 years later in that grand tradition of sequels that merely multiply the monster and call it new. The problem is, the video becomes less scary with each successive viewing, and there are only so many scenarios in which Samara can kill you. Throw in some fan-fiction-grade discoveries about the ghostly girl’s family tree, and you have a very dumb, very dull echo of The Ring Ring. The walk down memory lane was nice, at least. (RD)

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 16 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): By my estimates, 72 percent of you Aries are in unusually good moods. The world seems friendlier, more cooperative. Fifty-six percent of you feel more in love with life than you have in a long time. You may even imagine that the birds and trees and stars are flirting with you. I’m also guessing that 14 percent of you are weaving in and out of being absurdly, deliriously happy, sometimes without any apparent explanation. As a result of your generosity of spirit, you may be the recipient of seemingly impossible rewards like free money or toasted ice cream or unconditional tenderness. And I bet that at least 10 percent of you are experiencing all of the above.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): I am launching a campaign to undo obsolete stereotypes about you Bulls. There are still backward astrologers out there who perpetrate the lie that many of you are stingy, stolid, stubborn slowpokes. As an antidote, I plan to heighten everyone’s awareness of your sensual, soulful sweetness, and your tastefully pragmatic sensitivity, and your diligent, dynamic productivity. That should be easy in the coming weeks, since you’ll be at the height of your ability to express those superpowers. Luckily, people will also have an enhanced capacity to appreciate you for who you really are. It will be a favorable time to clarify and strengthen your reputation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Will Giovanni surreptitiously replace Allesandra’s birth control pills with placebos? Will Camille take a hidden crowbar to her rendezvous with the blackmailer? Will Josie steal Jose’s diary and sell it on eBay? Given the current astrological omens, you may have an unconscious attraction to soap-opera-type events like those. The glamour of melodrama is tempting you. But I’m hoping and predicting that you will express the cosmic currents in less toxic ways. Maybe you’ll hear a searing but healing confession after midnight in the pouring rain, for instance. Perhaps you’ll break an outworn taboo with ingenious grace, or forge a fertile link with a reformed rascal, or recover a lost memory in a dusty basement.

CANCER

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(June 21-July 22): All naturally occurring matter on Earth is composed of 92 basic elements arranged in various combinations. Since some of these appear in trace amounts, they took a long time for humans to discover. In the 18th and 19th centuries, chemists were exuberant when they tracked down seven of the 92 in a single location: an underground mine on the Swedish island of Ytterby. That small place was a mother lode. I’m predicting a metaphorically similar experience for you, Cancerian: new access to a concentrated source that will yield much illumination.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The ancient Roman rhetorician Quintilian authored a 12-volume textbook on the art of oratory. As ample as it was, it could have been longer. “Erasure is as important as writing,” he said. According to my reading of the astrological omens, that counsel should be a rewarding and even exciting theme for you in the coming weeks. For the long-term health of your labor of love or your masterpiece, you should focus for a while on what to edit out of it. How could you improve it by making it shorter and more concise?

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The meaning of the Latin phrase crambe repetita is “cabbage reheated, twice-cooked.” I urge you to avoid partaking of such a dish in the coming weeks, both literally and figuratively. If you’re truly hungry for cooked cabbage, eat it fresh. Likewise, if you have a ravenous appetite for stories, revelations, entertainment, and information — which I suspect you will — don’t accept the warmed-over, recycled variety. Insist on the brisk, crisp stuff that excites your curiosity and appeals to your sense of wonder.

LEO

SCORPIO

(July 23-Aug. 22): The next four weeks will be an excellent time to upgrade your understanding of the important characters in your life. In fact, I suspect you will generate good fortune and meaningful synchronicities whenever you seek greater insight into anyone who affects you. Get to know people better, Leo! If there are intriguing acquaintances who pique your curiosity, find out more about them. Study the oddballs you’re allergic to with the intention to discern their hidden workings. In general, practice being objective as you improve your skill at reading human nature.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do you know about the long-running kids’ show Sesame Street? Are you familiar with Big Bird, the talking eight-feet-tall yellow canary who’s one of the main characters? I hope so, because your horoscope is built around them. In the Sesame Street episode called “Don’t Eat the Pictures,” Big Bird solves a riddle that frees a 4,000-year-old Egyptian prince from an ancient curse. I think this vignette can serve as a model for your own liberation. How? You can finally outwit and outmaneuver a very old problem with the help of some playful, even child-like energy. Don’t assume that you’ve got to be relentlessly serious and dour in order to shed the ancient burden. In fact, just the opposite is true. Trust blithe and rowdy spirits.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Here’s your mantra for the next three weeks: “I know what I want, and I know how to glide it into my life.” Say this out loud 11 times right after you wake up each morning, and 11 more times before lunch, and 11 more times at bedtime. “I know what I want, and I know how to glide it into my life.” Whenever you do this little chant, summon an upflow of smiling confidence — a serene certainty that no matter how long the magic might take, it will ultimately work. “I know what I want, and I know how to glide it into my life.” Don’t let any little voice in your head undermine your link to this simple truth. Lift your heart to the highest source of vitality you can imagine.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 1787, English captain Arthur Phillip led an eight-month naval expedition to the southeastern part of the continent now known as Australia. Upon arrival, he claimed the land for England, despite the fact that 250,000 Aboriginal people were living there, just as their ancestors had for 2,000 generations. Two hundred years later, an Aboriginal activist named Burnum Burnum planted the Aboriginal flag on the White Cliffs of Dover, claiming England for his people. I encourage you to make a comparably artful or symbolic act like Burnum’s sometime soon, Virgo — a ritual or gesture to assert your sovereignty or evoke a well-deserved reversal or express your unconquerable spirit.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your lessons in communication are reaching a climax. Here are five tips to help you do well on your “final exam.” (1) Focus more on listening for what you need to know rather than on expressing what you already know. (2) Keep white lies and convenient deceptions to a bare minimum. (3) Tell the truth as strong and free as you dare, but always — if possible — with shrewd kindness. (4) You are more likely to help your cause if you spread bright, shiny gossip instead of the grubby kind. (5) Experiment with being unpredictable; try to infuse your transmissions with unexpected information and turns of phrase.

AQUARIUS

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “We cannot simply sit and stare at our wounds forever,” writes Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami. “We must stand up and move on to the next action.” That’s your slightly scolding but ultimately inspirational advice, Pisces. According to my astrological analysis, you have done heroic work to identify and investigate your suffering. You have summoned a tremendous amount of intelligence in order to understand it and further the healing. But right now it’s time to turn your focus to other matters. Like what? How about rebirth?

Homework: Imagine you have time-traveled to one of your favorite places in the year 2020. What do you see? I’m at Truthrooster@gmail.com.

Any information obtained may be used for that purpose. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 730‑2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site ‑ www.servicelinkASAP. com ‑ for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case: 128635. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. A‑4608735 02/16/2017, 02/23/2017, 03/02/2017
