Every wedding is as individual as the two it pairs, with the best generating fond memories and happy tears, theorized Terry Ortega, the mastermind behind this year’s Wedding Resource Guide. She remarked that this, her third year putting the guide together — ably supported by Savanna Mesch, Caitlin Fitch, Diane Mooshoolzadeh, and Marianne Kuga — reminded her of how happy she was that she was married in simpler times. Our copy chief, Jackson Friedman, the glowing groom on our cover, agreed, recalling that his charming wedding was “just perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing.” online now at

Luke Stein, 23, an SBCC student, was riding his motorcycle on 2/15 along Cabrillo Boulevard toward Montecito when Coredareo Nelson, 29, who was parked in his Honda Accord at the curb near the East Beach volleyball courts, pulled out in front of Stein. The two collided, and Stein was fatally injured. A DUI investigation revealed Nelson was possibly under the influence of marijuana. He was booked into County Jail on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI (drugs/marijuana), and driving without a license. His bail was set at $100,000.

Steven Courtney, 61, was sentenced to two months in jail for capturing hidden footage of his tenants in the bedrooms and bathrooms at his Montecito home. He will also serve three years of probation, be required to register as a sex offender, and pay more than $17,000 in restitution fees. The British biologist had been spying on his tenants for sexual gratification for more than a year and was caught after one tenant found a miniature camera. Courtney, an active bird watcher and public policy ecologist, rented desk space at UCSB’s National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis downtown, an arrangement that ended after criminal charges were filed.
After 25 years of offering a free service, James O’Mahoney (pictured) is closing his Santa Barbara Surf Museum, located on Helena Avenue in the heart of Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone. O’Mahoney said its next-door neighbor, the Santa Barbara Museum — which he also owns — will remain open. The decision to pull the plug on the surf museum came shortly after investor Ray Mahboob bought the building late last year. With the high-end Entrada hotel about to open its doors at the bottom of State Street this summer, Funk Zone real estate values are going stratospheric. “You have to turn the other cheek, I know,” said O’Mahoney, “but I’ve run out of cheek,” adding, “plus I need to get a new hip.” In the meantime, O’Mahoney says he’s looking for someone interested in buying his collection of 60 vintage surf surfboards, hundreds of skateboards, and about as many ukuleles.

FroM BlooMS to BluntS Carpinteria Flower Growers Toeing Greener Grasses of Marijuana Industry
pau l wellm an
by Kelsey Brugger orty-five years ago,
Dutch immigrants began arriving in the Carpinteria Valley to escape strict government regulations in the flowergrowing business. But now, since dabbling in the morphing marijuana industry, they are begging to be regulated. Growers say the once successful flower trade in Carpinteria has been strapped by several factors: An estimated 80 percent of all flowers sold in the United States now originate from Colombia; the adoption of Carp’s “Greenhouse Plan” has restricted greenhouse size and scope; and new statewide rules hiked minimum wage and overtime rules, and also increased diesel standards, among other things. This forced some operations to lay off employees and make other cuts. But others that began growing marijuana are flush with cash. “Some growers feel they have no choice but to grow something that will produce more money,” said longtime Gerbera daisy grower June Van Wingerden, who said she does not want to grow marijuana. “I don’t like it. I was once a high school teacher and have seen the damage marijuana can do to teenagers, but I can understand that a grower who has worked their entire life growing flowers just sees marijuana as another crop, a more profitable crop.” The burgeoning cannabis industry in Carpinteria Valley is both widely known and somewhat hush-hush. It is legal to grow medical marijuana in Santa Barbara County, but it remains unclear what the number of growers is who have dabbled in — or delved into — the industry. The only local enforcement is essentially nonexistent, driven only by complaints to the county sheriff or building inspectors of skunk-like odors. Sheriff ’s Lieutenant Mike Perkins said grievances have waned in recent months, but he used to receive several per week near the greenhouses along Carp’s northern border. Depending on which way the winds are blowing, traces of what is unmistakably marijuana can be sniffed from Carpinteria High School. “That is not desirable,” said County Supervisor Das Williams, who lives in Carp. But “those are issues you can take care of by requiring a standard to be met.” The county supervisors are in the process of establishing such standards, following the passage of the recreational marijuana initiative by California voters in November. “This would be right up their alley because they have always been innovators,” said Williams in an interview. They have increased flower production per acre, worked to keep all water

Liz Rogan on site, and prevented pesticide migration, which “frankly, other agriculture industries could imitate,” he said. But since marijuana is still prohibited under federal law, flower growers who grow cannabis tend to keep low profiles. Williams appeared sympathetic to the plight of growers, but in an interview afterward, he offered measured remarks. “We don’t want Carpinteria to be the marijuana capital of the United States,” he said. “That being said, with the passage of Prop. 64, somebody is going to grow it.” In anticipation of Prop. 64’s passage, about 50 growers with varying degrees of experience growing marijuana formed the Cannabis Business Council of Santa Barbara County. They have hired attorneys and public relations representatives to help lobby the county supervisors to adopt their proposed ordinance. Liz Rogan, a founding member, said she moved to the area 15 years ago after seeing the many benefits of “the relationship between plants and people.” She works with a Carp grower who delved into marijuana five years ago and also manages several delivery services in the area. She explained that though openness around the issue has occurred, marijuana growers are still overcoming stigma. Many growers, though, are slowly edging toward speaking about their operations. Several declined to be interviewed for this story, but some publicly spoke in front of the county supervisors last week. To determine how prevalent marijuana cultivation is in Carpinteria, just perhaps follow your nose. Rogan acknowledged the strong whiffs of pot, but she said growers are working on ways to control odor. “Unfortunately,” she added, “when you live in an ag area, odors are part of it.” n

Santa BarBara anti-iMMigration group FindS neW liFe under truMp
by Tyler Hayden mong the many Santa Barbara groups outspoken
on immigrant issues, one voice stands out. Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), headquartered at 1129 State Street, is a nonprofit organization with national reach and more than half a million members who feel “runaway population growth” is responsible for what they see as California’s greatest crises — air and water pollution, clogged roads, and overcrowded schools. CAPS advocates for tougher border laws and domestic policies that shield legal California residents from the influence of outsiders. CAPS was founded in 1986 by a group of environmentalists, doctors, lawyers, and writers. Today, five Santa Barbara area residents sit on its nine-member board of directors, including interior designer Judith Smith, investor Kenneth Pasternack, art dealer Keith Mautino Moore, urban planner Marilyn Brant Chandler DeYoung, and attorney Kristin Larson. CAPS often finds itself fighting an uphill battle, existing as it does in a liberal city in a Democratic state. But with the election of Donald Trump, who made mass deportations and a wall along Mexico his biggest presidential selling points, the organization has found new life and new supporters. We spoke last week with CAPS spokesperson Joe Guzzardi about his group’s core beliefs and policy ideas. This is an edited version of our conversation.
immigrants, but it just isn’t possible to provide humanely for all of these individuals.
how do lawmakers respond to the caps agenda? It’s hard to get
these guys engaged in mature conversation about the issues. They don’t want to hear it, and the default response is “You’re a racist and a xenophobe, and I don’t want to talk to you.”
what new legislation does caps support outside california?
Senators Tom Cotton [R-AR] and David Perdue [R-GA] have introduced a bill we support that would redefine, and basically eliminate, chain migration. That’s when an immigrant comes to the United States and brings his wife and children; then after a certain amount of time, the wife becomes a citizen, and she brings her family members … and so on.
i’m guessing you’re opposed to birthright citizenship. Oh yeah, totally, totally opposed to that. Just look at the birth tourism industry, where hotels shamelessly cater to women who come to the United States in their third term for the specific purpose of citizenship.
For places like Santa Barbara to continue to defy the president’s explicit wishes is really playing with fire. is trump the answer to all your prayers? We’re happy that
immigration is finally back in the national spotlight and getting the attention it deserves. There’s been a steadfast refusal by both Republican and Democratic administrations to enforce immigration laws. Open-border advocates have had their way for three decades, and now that Trump has come along, they’re getting hit with a ton of bricks.
— Joe Guzzardi, CAPS spokesperson
what countries do you admire for their immigration policies? Japan comes to mind. It has limited immigration, limited refugees, and has a thriving economy. And they don’t have birthright citizenship, I can tell you that.
what’s your opinion on the concept of sanctuary cities? It’s
what should be the goal of immigration law reform? To create
completely baffling to me why [local] law enforcement would not want to cooperate with [federal] law enforcement … It just doesn’t make sense to me on the most basic level, and since Trump has come into office, I think for places like Santa Barbara to continue to defy the president’s explicit wishes is really playing with fire.
if you were on trump’s team, how would you advise him to do that? Move quickly on mandatory E-Verify [which proves a

worker’s legal status by comparing information on the person’s I-9 form to data from Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration]. E-Verify would take away lots of problems both in terms of illegal immigration and in restoring American jobs.
the wall — a viable plan or silly campaign promise? The way it is
right now, Mexicans, Africans, Cubans, and Asians are lined up at the border because they know that once they get in, the chances of getting deported are close to zero. In California you have the TRUST [Transparency and Responsibility Using State Tools] Act, you can get a driver’s license, you can qualify for in-state tuition, you can qualify for a professional license. It’s an extremely welcoming environment for illegal

with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on immigration requests is certainly at least welcoming.
there are studies, though, that show cities with high immigrant populations actually have lower crime rates. To me, that’s a
disingenuous argument … Go to the ICE website and take a look at the people they apprehend every day for kidnapping, rape, sexual assault against minors. If these individuals were not in the United States, they wouldn’t be committing those crimes against citizens.
if it’s all about population numbers, can deportation raids ever have an appreciable impact? I believe they send a much-needed message that the new administration is not going to tolerate the presence of criminal aliens in California or elsewhere
in the United States, which will have a long-term effect on stabilizing California’s population. Plus, it’s entirely possible, in fact probable, that Trump will remove two million immigrants in his first term alone.
on the caps website you say, “stop terrorists via new regulations for student and tourist visa holders that make their location and movements known.” can you elaborate on that? California high
school graduates now have to compete not only with their fellow graduates and kids from Arizona or New Jersey but also with international students. It becomes a question of what’s fair. Here you’ve got California kids whose families have paid into the system and supported universities in some cases for generations. Should that kid have the first shot to attend Cal, or should somebody who has never been to the state of California in their life and has never paid 10 cents to the tax base of California?
what about international students who stay in california, join its tax base, and contribute to the economy? I would say that only
makes it worse because if they stay, and of course a great many of them do, then they’re competing in the same shrinking job market that we’re talking about. It’s not a very good deal for the California kids looking to get ahead.
isn’t immigrant labor critical to our economy, not only in more skilled sectors but also to the service and agriculture industries?
As for the service industry, it’s just not possible to make the argument that you can’t find Americans to work in the service industry. Certainly there are people who would take those jobs, part-time jobs. People who are trying to supplement the family income by working 30 hours a week at a hotel or a restaurant or a bar; college kids who are trying to save up for next year’s tuition. And as far as agriculture goes, I would say, look, fellas, it’s time for you to start focusing on automation, because that’s been successful worldwide.
how does caps feel about economic refugees? There are over
seven billion people in the world, and the vast majority are poor. Not every solution to dire economic conditions should be resolved in the U.S.
what’s it like being a conservative voice in a mostly liberal community? There are a lot of immigration advocacy groups out there lobbying for more rights for immigrants. But what would really be best for the immigrants in the United States would be fewer immigrants. Good jobs are increasingly hard to find, schools are overcrowded, and roads are overcrowded — so the best thing for an immigrant, especially a brand-new immigrant who’s trying to find his way, would n be if he had fewer immigrants to compete with.

Planned Parenthood supporters gather at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens.
pink for planned parenthood
bout 300 supporters of Planned Parenthood slogged across the wet and slippery turf
of the Courthouse Sunken Gardens late Tuesday afternoon to voice their opposition to the Trump administration’s vow to cut funding for Planned Parenthood. Retired Episcopalian minister Mark Asman, wearing a pink scarf and Planned Parenthood cap, stressed that access to family planning information and medical assistance was inextricably entwined into the quest for social and economic justice. As Asman and four other ministers held center stage, two anti-abortion protestors, each wielding large, gory posters showing aborted fetuses, sought to inch their way forward. Determined Planned Parenthood supporters carrying pro-Planned Parenthood signs successfully blocked them. Congressmember Salud Carbajal, the Democratic representative from the 24th District and a former Planned Parenthood boardmember, said the organization served three million women—and men—a year, providing birth control, sex education, HIV tests, and cancer screenings, as well as abortions. He spoke derisively of Trump’s “little administration” in Washington, D.C., and vowed to oppose any effort to roll back 40 years of abortion rights — as now guaranteed by the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case. “We are not going back,” he —Nick Welsh shouted.

month after President Trump issued executive orders hardening America’s immigration policies, federal security officials this week announced they would be hiring thousands of additional enforcement agents, accelerating the administrative deportation process, and expanding people who are targeted for removal, among other things. The announcement came just days after people across the country boycotted work as part of a somewhat impromptu A Day Without Immigrants, including many in Santa Barbara. A number of restaurant owners shut their doors on February 16, including Adam White, who operates Boathouse at Hendry’s Beach, FisHouse, Santa Barbara Shellfish Company, and Casa Blanca. “I didn’t set out to make some sort of statement,” White said. “I’m just trying to show support for my guys. These are good people. They pay their taxes. They are not taking any jobs away from anyone I grew up with.” He said roughly a third of his 260 workers are first- or second-generation immigrants. None of his employees had complained to him about the decision, he said. He estimated he lost $45,000 in sales that weekday. Los Agaves Restaurant, Enterprise Fish Company, Arnoldi’s Café, Cesar’s Place, Lily’s Tacos, Taquería Cuernavaca, Mayo’s Carnicería & Tacos, La Super-Rica Taquería, Live Oak Café, Sly’s, Jeannine’s Bakery, and Los Arroyos also appeared to be closed Thursday as no one answered the phones at those locations. At Carpinteria Children’s Project, where 70 percent of the 24 preschool teachers are immigrants, seven stayed home. Maria Chesley Fisk, the executive director, said one classroom had to close that day. She received some annoyed communications from parents, unaware of the last-minute decision sent out Wednesday night, but even those frustrated “supported the cause.” Passionate discussion about the debate rapidly took off on social media, where the movement began. Super Cucas on the Mesa, which stayed open, posted on Instagram a photo of the owner with a sign made of tinfoil that read #IamAmerican. “For all the ignorant people who want to believe my boss/uncle is a bad person for not closing his restaurants …” the post read, followed by questions and answers about his experience pursuing the American Dream after immigrating here at age 16. —Kelsey Brugger

State of Sativa
As Legal Weed Looms, Good and Bad News for California Stoners
marketing tip for Santa Barbara pot growers getting set for legalization of recreational sales in 2018: Aim some ad dollars at Mother’s Day. That’s one merchandizing conclusion to be drawn from a new “State of Cannabis” report, based on a survey of 5,000 clients of Eaze — a mobile app and online platform that arranges 20-minutes-orless-deliveries of legal pot to a claimed 250,000 California medical marijuana consumers. The “Uber of Weed,” as it’s known in Silicon Valley, does not yet operate in Santa Barbara, where several smaller firms offer online services. As a financial matter, however, Eaze provides a glimpse of the sleek and sizedto-scale, Big Pot corporate future of retailing in California, forecast as a $20 billion market, when recreational sales become legal next year. “Every 30 seconds, someone orders marijuana on Eaze,” proclaims the company’s site, which offers clients a detailed menu of product choices, as well as online connection with physicians. WHAT WE’RE SMOKING: Entrepreneur
Keith McCarty launched the corporation in 2014. To date he’s received more than $20 million in financing from venture capital firms, according to the tech press, in addition to original investor Snoop Dogg. A major company asset is the huge database it continues to build, which compiles and catalogues the tastes and trends of hundreds of thousands of pot consumers. Some intriguing findings from the second annual “State of Cannabis” survey: • The most popular strain of marijuana in the 100 cities served by Eaze is the hybrid “Gorilla Glue #4,” with sales equivalent to “30,000 pre-rolls,” according to the report, which also tracked big gains by “Bubba Kush,” “Girl Scout Cookies,” and “Jack Herer,” along with declines in demand for “Sour Diesel” and “Blue Dream.” • The fastest-growing products are manufactured vapor cartridges, which surged 400 percent in sales in one year, at the expense of pot in flower form, which sharply declined in 2016, from 75 percent to 54 percent of Eaze total sales. Sorry, Carpinteria.
Less predictable, however, are several other special occasions that round out the Top 10 list, including Veterans Day (#4), Earth Day (#9) and Mother’s Day (#10).

In a financial world where survival of a small business against behemoth corporate competition often depends on sales to a distinct niche, a wily merchant might consider offering a special holiday package: Gets mom baked before a sumptuous Mother’s Day brunch at the Fess Parker. Plenty of free parking. ON THE OTHER HAND: In Sacramento,
Governor Brown has proposed $51 million in his new budget to establish a legal framework that would align new guidelines for recreational pot, authorized by the passage of last fall’s Proposition 64, with existing benchmarks for medical marijuana. Amid the debate, there remains nagging concern about the possible threat to implementation of the initiative posed by the White House administration of President Hair Boy. Under federal law, marijuana is still illegal, and new Attorney General Jeff Sessions has a long record of opposing legalization. Among his past statements: “Good people don’t smoke marijuana” and “We need grownups in Washington to say marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized. …” In his Senate confirmation hearing, Sessions wiggled around on the issue, saying at one point that enforcing federal law in 29 states where pot now is legal might overtax his budget, but declaring at another that he would “not commit to never enforcing federal law.” So California’s independent Legislative Analyst has urged lawmakers to go slow, warning them in a new report that “federal policy could change in the future, which might affect the state’s ability to effectively implement regulations on cannabis.” — Jerry Roberts Sheesh.

Glenn William “Bill” Elliott 06/03/28-02/10/17
Our beloved Bill died at home on February 10, 2017 after a lengthy illness. Born June 3, 1928 in Wheatland, Wyoming, he grew up on the family farm in Mitchell, Nebraska. His parents were Glenn Weaver and Retta Springer Elliott. The farm was part of land homesteaded and purchased by the three Springer brothers (one of whom was his grandfather) who had passed through the North Platte Valley along the Oregon Trail. Life on the farm taught Bill and his four sisters the value of family, community, and work and instilled a respect for the land and all living things. He earned a B.S in Mathematics and an M.A in Educational Psychology from the University of Nebraska. After serving as a 1st Lieutenant, Field Artillery, in Korea he completed his Ph.D. in Psychology and Education from the University of Denver. Bill, his wife, Dorothy Harnsberger, and their daughters Amy and Elizabeth then moved to California where he was Guidance Coordinator for the San Diego County Department of Education and then School Psychologist for Carlsbad Union School District. In 1963 he began a career in the Goleta Union School District serving as Director of Pupil Personnel Services, Director of Title I,III, and V ESEA projects, and School Psychologist until his retirement
february 23, 2017
in 1989. He developed the interdisciplinary model for Goleta’s Child Study Team. Bill married Susan Cherney Ehrlich in 1982 and their combined family included John William Elliott, Bill’s grandson/adopted son and Leigh and Dave Ehrlich. They hosted many exchange students, had wonderful travel experiences and shared a passion for birding. Bill was a master pie baker and indulged his wife by learning to tango. He read avidly, relished the exchange of ideas, and could never resist buying a book of poetry. He taught graduate level courses in Education through the University of California, Santa Barbara, and California Lutheran College and supervised counselor interns from UCSB. He was a licensed Clinical Psychologist and a member of the American Psychological Association, several state counseling and psychological organizations, and the Santa Barbara County Psychological Association. He was an early volunteer supervisor with the Santa Barbara Night Counseling Center and a founding member of the Isla Vista Youth Project. He served on the boards of the local March of Dimes, the Santa Barbara Mental Health Association, and the Goleta Valley Land Trust and was a member of the Santa Barbara County Mental Health Commission. In 2013 he was honored by the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara as a Hero for Justice for his assistance to elderly and disabled clients helping many avoid eviction and homelessness. He was preceded in death by his son John and his sister Eleanor Ganz of Lincoln, Nebraska. He is survived by his wife Sue, his daughters Amy (Victor) Gallant of Cloverdale, Oregon, Elizabeth (Stephen) Green and grandsons Bryan and Brennen Green of Lake Oswego, Oregon, David Ehrlich (Cheryl) of Hercules, California, Leigh Ehrlich (Alexander Ivanov) and granddaughter Aurora Ivanova of Moscow, Russia and Santa Barbara, and sisters Arlene Buffington of Mitchell, Clela Duemler of Madison, Wisconsin, and Donna Swaim of Tucson, Arizona. Bill’s life work was helping people to grow. He had a generous spirit and a warm and caring heart. His school office was well supplied with scrap wood, tools, glue and nails because therapy was not all talk, and he and his kids wore out many pairs of batakas. After retiring from the schools, his clients ranged from toddlers to seniors to group home kids to Santa Barbara’s homeless. He traveled about town in his “therapy” van and designated a picnic table at the beach where the homeless could find him. A modest, unassuming man, Bill would have shrugged his shoulders and described himself simply as a Nebraska farm boy trying to make his way in the world. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date in Santa Barbara. Friends may honor him by
remembering Planned Parenthood California Central Coast, Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara, Mental Wellness Center, or Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care of Santa Barbara.
George Edward McClintock 01/16/29-02/09/17
It was a different era, when all men felt it their patriotic duty to serve in the US armed forces, risking their lives, for their country. The men, who fought the Korean War, June 25th 1950, were fighting to secure the peace and security, which we know today. But, what of the character of a man … a US Army Corporal, who saves the lives of his men, returning to the battlefield, under enemy fire, until they are secure? George Edward McClintock was such a man. Awarded the Purple Heart, he was always humble about saving the lives of fellow soldiers. Instead, he chose to remember the lives of the men he could not save. At the age of 88, George joined them, passing away peacefully, on February 9, 2017, in Santa Barbara. George was born in Chicago, Illinois, on January 16th 1929, to Edwina and George McClintock, Irish immigrants, from County Cork. The family moved to Los Angeles, when he was very young. George had three other siblings, Norma Jean, Dennis and Patricia, now all deceased. He was tall for his age and, at 6’4”, loved to play high school basketball, which led to George’s recruitment, by Santa Clara University. He served in the military and fought in the Korean War, before being honorably discharged and awarded the Purple Heart, in 1952. But, the happiest day of his life was, February 20th 1954, when George married the love of his life, Inez Lucy Fantin, the daughter of Italian immigrants. The young couple moved to Santa Barbara, purchasing a home on the Mesa, where they intended to start a family. They welcomed six children into the world, five daughters and one son, all of who became their pride and joy. Of his many interests, George had a passion for Jazz, founding Santa Barbara’s first jazz club, the Spigot, on upper De La Vina Street. The Spigot was an incredible night spot and through its doors came the jazz greats: Louis Armstrong; Cal Tjader; Dizzy Gillespie; Herbi Mann; Marv Jenkins; Cannonball; Curtis Amy; and the
Ray Charles Band. His wife, Lucy, prepared homemade Italian pasta, serving it, “compliments of the house,” to their patrons. After concerts, George invited musicians to his home, for impromptu jazz sets, while enjoying barbecue steak and more of Lucy’s “old world” Italian cuisine. Theirs was a community of friends and family, loving and supportive, especially through Lucy’s long struggle with MS, which took her life, on January 21st 1989. George’s later years were focused on the achievements of his children and grandchildren, a proud legacy and a lifetime devotion to his family. An Irishman to the heart, he had a great sense of humor and amused everyone with his stories of “the kids.” George loved SB County’s natural beauty… looking out to sea, enjoying incomparable sunsets, along Goleta Beach and long walks, on hiking trails. He undertook one such hike, on the Nawoi Falls trail, near Lompoc, at the youthful age of 84. Everywhere he went, his constant companion, was his service dog, Bruiser, a 20 lb. Pomeranian, resembling a fox. Some of his last words were to the effect, “Make sure to give him love.” For the infinite, loving example he brought to life, strength in family, and enduring joy, we loved George well. George is survived by his six children: Kathleen McClintock Stimson DDS, Diana McClintock, Darlene Reynolds, Cynthia Hagon, Mark McClintock and Norma Howell and ten grandchildren: Jaclyn Hagon, Briana Curry, Chad McClintock, Nathan Hagon, Jacob Reynolds, Maria McClintock, Joseph McClintock, Kelsey Stimson, Jessica Howell and Kathleen Stimson. The Rosary is at Saint Raphael’s Church at 6:30 PM on Thursday February 23rd, 2017. The funeral is Friday February 24th, 2017 at 10:00 AM at Saint Raphael’s Church with a reception to follow, location to be announced at the funeral.

dancer. I have lived in Santa Barbara since 1973. I was raised in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. My father was a senator in the Virgin Islands Senate, a Princeton alumnus, and a hunter, and he was from a family of American royalty (the wealthy Alexanders of Kentucky). He was not just a Republican but also a Nazi sympathizer, a white supremacist who hated Jews, blacks, women, and, worst of all, the poor (the “Have Nots” = anyone who was not white, wealthy, and old money). My mother was a popular Broadway actress from a poor Midwest family. She started the Humane Society in the islands and took in abandoned children and animals and gave them food, money, comfort. She was also a Republican, but a humanitarian Republican. Everyone adored her. When she died, it was a community tragedy. As might be expected, my mother and father were at odds all the time. They fought about everything under the sun; sometimes they put each other in the hospital. One of the more memorable fights was over his hunting. At one point, while my father was on a hunting trip, my mother put all his guns and ammunition out on their sailboat, sailed out to the open ocean, and dumped the guns, ammo, and body parts of the dead animals. That was quite a fight. But it was rivaled by my illegal abortion. In 1968, abortion was illegal. I was 17 and engaged to a 25-year-old college grad. I was on the way to college when I got pregnant. Hearing this, my boyfriendbroke up with me, having realized he really wasn’t ready for a serious relationship. I was devastated. My heart was broken, and I didn’t know how I would care for a child alone and go to college. Afraid to tell my father (who would undoubtedly shoot the guy), my mother took me to the southern island of Grenada where I could have an abortion secretly. I remember being in the waiting room with about a dozen other (mostly) poor women who could not afford to have another child. Most had no husband or anyone to help them care for and raise yet another child. They could not afford birth control, which was a fairly new thing. When it was my turn, I went in and
got on the table. The doctor dilated my cervix and inserted the saline solution. We went back to the hotel, and for two days, I lay in a tub bleeding and miscarrying. It was excruciating. By the time we got home, I was very ill with a high fever and still bleeding profusely. I couldn’t stand, because I would lose consciousness from the loss of blood. My mother had hoped not to have to tell my father about the abortion, but it was obvious after our arrival that my condition was serious and I could possibly die. So she had to tell him. He went insane with rage. But going to the hospital was not an option. It would not only mean destroying his political career, but they would go to jail, and our family would be broken up. As usual, a fight ensued. My father put me in an ice bath to bring the temperature down. My mother then dragged me back to bed and covered me with blankets. Then my father returned and put me back into the ice bath. Mother returned and put me back in bed. This went on for almost two days. No one knew what to do, and no one dared call for medical assistance because of the dire consequences of being found out. Nonetheless, I was young and healthy and made it through. I went to college, grew up, got married, and had a beautiful son. Happily, abortion became legal soon after that, so I never had to experience that kind of near-death experience again, because I had several abortions after that. I am one of those unfortunate few who never found a form of birth control that wasn’t life threatening for me. I had three surgeries to take an IUD out. I am severely allergic to latex, so condoms and diaphragms do not work; I got blood clots with the pill and had toxic shock from the sponge, and there were no patches, NuvaRings, or injections when I was of childbirth age. And abstinence is not an option when married. My personal feeling is that those opposed to abortion have never experienced an illegal abortion, or they would think twice about condemning it.

Good-Bye, 401(k) Promise
n spite of all the rhetoric we’ve heard from Trump and other Republicans about making Washington work for Joe Six-Pack out in the hinterlands, when it comes to walking the walk, it’s the same old story. Our state recently passed California Secure Choice. The new law would require small businesses to allow their workers to contribute to a state-administered individual retirement fund. The businesses themselves would not be required to make contributions.You can check out the California State Treasurer’s website for more information (treasurer.ca.gov/scib). State-sponsored retirement plans were given the U.S. Department of Labor seal of approval. Governor Jerry Brown touted the new law as a way for workers who have little savings to make up some lost ground in building a nest egg. But guess what? Last week the U.S. House effectively killed these plans by closing off an Obama administration order that gave them the green light. The Senate will probably follow suit. There is a House Education and the Workforce Committee news release full of doublespeak and false claims that attempts to justify shutting down these plans. The GOP opposes them because the financial services industry feels that state-sponsored plans will be unfair competition. It’s Wall Street over Main Street once again. The sad fact is Republicans are killing this opportunity for millions of small-business workers currently not covered by 401(k) plans to live a better retirement, and I think the Republicans need to own it. —Charles Stauffer, Solvang

rump promised to release his tax returns during the campaign. However, he also said he would not get elected if he released them. So which is it? Are the tax returns so bad that the American people would call for an immediate impeachment? Would the tax returns show that he paid no taxes for the past 20 years, as he’s already stated? Or would they show his connections to Russia and the Russian mafia? But to be fair, the American people just need to see the tax returns to either settle the issue that there is no conflict or that there is. Every other president for the past 40 years has done so. No bull, Donald. Step up to the plate, and release —Thomas I. Morse, S.B. your tax returns.

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?

Breathe into rollness MeMorial for Floyd the Chihuahua I L paul wellman
ast June, Michele Morrow met a sensitive chihuahua named Floyd at the animal shelter. Tragically, one month later, Floyd was adopted, tortured, and killed by the person who was supposed to be his salvation in what became a massive news story. Not wanting his death to be in vain, Morrow decided to create a memorial for Floyd at Elings Park in order to raise awareness about animal abuse. The memorial’s ribbon cutting, fundraiser, and “day of action” is at the park on Friday, March 3, 4-6 p.m. The memorial, which is planned for above the soccer fields, features a garden and a statue of Floyd created by sculpNOT IN VAIN: Animal activists Diana Basehart (left) and Michele tor Bud Bottoms.

nhale, exhale. Focusing on these simple actions, you can bring your body into greater alignment, ease stress, and relax your mind. This is the basic premise of Rollness, a gentle, breathing-centered exercise akin to yoga, Pilates, or tai chi that will be taught by FrancoAmerican fitness specialist Shirley Marcus at the Santa Barbara Yoga Center on Sunday. Using principles of Chinese energetic meridians, the low-impact exercise fosters improvement of posture, bone alignment, and lymphatic circulation. “The movements are easy, but they’re precise,” explained Marcus. The techniques definitely appeal to those looking for a low-exertion, at-home fitness routine or a moving meditation, or to injured athletes or yogis who want to maintain the benefits of their practice during recovery. In fact, Marcus discovered the routine through her doctors after a car accident. She developed a following in France, where she conducted online classes, before moving here to spread the exercise stateside. Her students report great benefits, said Marcus, explaining, “Their back straightens; they’re more flexible; they’re more toned; their digestion and skin are better.” I tried out the Rollness technique in a one-on-one session and can vouch for the benefits. Though the forward-backward, contractionexpansion exercises were small and simple, I was standing straighter afterward, and the rather chronic stress-related pains in my shoulders and hips were very noticeably gone. I practice yoga, so the principles of balance and counterbalance were familiar to me, but the exercise achieved similar effects with much less exertion. With Rollness, a little goes a long way. — Richie DeMaria
Rollness is at S.B. Yoga Center (32 E. Micheltorena St.) on Sunday, February 26, at 11 a.m. See santabarbarayogacenter.com. To register, call 825-7865, email email@example.com, or visit rollnessusa.com.

UCSB Grad’s PoCkET GuIdE
To CoLLEGE SuCCESS É
mile Nelson doesn’t just work hard—he works smart. He’s one of those rare and enviable guys for which impeccable time management comes naturally. Nelson graduated UCSB last year with straight As, highest honors, and a University Award of Distinction. He was also a member of Phi Beta Kappa, served as the Nexus editor in chief, and juggled friends, a girlfriend, and a law firm job in his “free” time. “No time is really free,” he said. “It always costs you something.” Nelson was figuring out his first post-UCSB move — he’d been considering careers in journalism or law— law when he was invited to a workshop put on by author Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup for the Soul fame. “Boom,” Nelson said, snapping his fingers. “The inspiration hit, and I thought, ‘What’s something I have expertise in?’ Being a good student.” With his characteristic efficiency, Nelson set out to create an interactive journal for the new college student, hoping to pass along the lessons he learned and lived in an engaging and easy-to-use way. “I wanted to make college not such a threatening thing,” he said, noting that less than 35 percent of college students graduate in four years, and more than 40 percent never graduate at all. Take Off! Your Pocket Coach to Student Success was published last August and reached number two on Amazon’s list of best-selling back-to-school books. Nelson partnered with his mom, Åsa Odbäck, on the book and credits her business acumen and life experience for its success. “We’re a great team,” he said. Unfortunately, Nelson noted, colleges do little to prepare freshmen for their new lives of independence and higher learning, and how to manage both. He remembered his UCSB orientation focusing more on binge-drinking than study habits or health care. Take Off! helps students think both practically and introspectively, asking questions such as: What do you appreciate about yourself? What is your plan to take care of your body during college? and How do you manage times of stress? Blank pages are for responses, and motivational quotes and stories highlight different themes of self-help. The whole idea, said Nelson, is to build confidence and good habits in order to save time that would otherwise be wasted by doubt or distraction. Nelson admitted it’s tough for a young graduate like himself to not come across as sanctimonious. He’s careful about his approach, and that tact comes through in person. He’s authentically humble. He’s just happened to figure out time in a way most, especially college freshmen, haven’t. “There’s a lot of time in the day,” he said. “You just have to be aware of the best way to use it.” Nelson plans to have a few more books published by the end of the year. — Tyler Hayden
s a teenager, the Israeli author and historian Yuval Noah Harari wanted to answer life’s biggest questions. But he had to endure a detour through academia and the minutiae of medieval military history first, before getting tenure at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University and shifting his focus to macro-history. His book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind hit many must-read lists around the world, and his recent follow-up, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, takes his theories into the future. He’ll discuss them both when he comes to UCSB’s Campbell Hall for a free talk on Monday, February 27, at 7:30 p.m. He answered a few of my questions via email, and a much longer version of this chat can be found at independent.com/harari.
PrediCts huManKind’s Future
Your new book shows humans on a dangerous path. What can we do to right the ship? We need to construct truly global identi-
ties and loyalties. All our major problems are global in nature. In order to face these challenges successfully, we need global cooperation. We also need to protect our local communities. For hundreds of thousands of years, humans have been adapted to living in small, intimate communities numbering no more than a few dozen people. Consequently, even today, most humans find it impossible to really know more than 150 individuals, irrespective of how many Facebook “friends” they boast. Global identities can work only if they leave room and give support to local communities. On an even more intimate level, we need to keep in touch with our bodies. We have lost the ability to pay attention to what we smell, touch, and taste, and instead we get absorbed in our smart-phones and computers. Before we use bioengineering to upgrade our bodies, we first need to get back in touch with them. Finally, we need to understand our minds better. In recent decades we have made great progress in understanding the human brain, but we have made far less progress in understanding the mind. Many people, including many scientists, tend to confuse the brain with the mind, but they are really very different things. Though we have more answers and data at our fingertips than ever, why do so many people appear more lost than ever? I think
that today our ability to understand the world is smaller than ever before. In the past, human knowledge increased slowly and technology took time to develop, so politics and economics also changed at a leisurely pace. Today, our knowledge is increasing at breakneck speed, and theoretically we should understand the world better and better. But the very opposite is happening. Our newfound knowledge leads to faster economic, social, and independent.com
Yuval Noah Harari
political changes; in an attempt to understand what is happening, we accelerate the accumulation of knowledge, which leads only to faster and greater upheavals. Consequently, we are less and less able to make sense of the present or to forecast the future. In 1017, it was relatively easy to predict how the world would look in 1050. Sure, dynasties might fall, Vikings might invade, and natural disasters might strike; yet, it was clear that in 1050 most people would still work as farmers, men would dominate women, life expectancy would be about 40, and the human body would be exactly the same. In contrast, today we have no idea how the world will look in 2050. We don’t know what people will do for a living, we don’t know what gender relations will be like (or even if there will be any distinct genders at all), people might live much longer than today, and the human body itself might undergo an unprec unprecedented revolution thanks to bioengineering and direct braincomputer interfaces. No wonder people feel apprehensive and are very curious to hear about the future. It is a pressing issue. For example, we have no idea what to teach our kids because we have no idea what kind of world they will inhabit. Most of what they currently learn at school will probably be irrelevant by the time they are 40. What will you speak about during your talk at UCSB? I will focus on the shift in authority from
humans to algorithms. Given enough biometric data and enough computing power, external algorithms will soon know us better than we know ourselves. Once this happens, authority might shift from humans to these algorithms, and practices such as democratic elections and free markets might become as obsolete as rain dances and flint knives. — Matt Kettmann

CIF PLAYOFFS: Nothing comes easy in the postseason. Two
Channel League champions had to sweat out close victories in their CIF Southern Section playoff openers last weekend. The Dos Pueblos Chargers (22-4) got a last-minute bucket from Diego Riker to send their Division 2A basketball game against Saugus into overtime, and they pulled out a 75-65 victory. In the Division 1 soccer playoffs, the No. 3–seeded Santa Barbara Dons (20-1-5) were down 1-0 at halftime against the Century Centurions, and their attack was sputtering. They moved the ball with more skill in the second half, and when a long throw-in by Guillermo Mendoza dropped between defenders, freshman Juan Carlos Torres hammered the game-tying goal for the Dons. They went ahead 2-1 moments later with senior Luis Alfaro’s leaping header off a corner kick, and they withstood an all-out Century assault in the final minutes. “It was exciting,” senior goalkeeper Juan Santana said. “The ref added a lot of extra time. I thought, ‘When is this going to end?’” The Dons have made 17 consecutive playoff appearances under coach Todd Heil and won two CIF championships, the last in 2010. They reached the final last year and lost to Loyola, 3-1. The teams were set for a rematch in the second round on Wednesday at Loyola, which pounded Simi Valley 6-1 in another first-rounder. “There are no bad teams in this division,” Heil said, noting that four of the top 10 seeds were upset in the first round. He said the Dons have a quality that makes him anxious but suits them well under adversity. “They fall behind, but it never fazes them.” In girls’ water polo, the top seeds all made it to Wednesday’s final four in Irvine. Trying to break up an Orange County final are No. 3 San Marcos (against No. 2 Mater Dei) and No. n 4 Dos Pueblos (against No. 1 Laguna Beach).

World of Pinot noir in your Glass
AnnuAl CelebrAtion of the ‘HearTbreak Grape’ Comes to bACArA resort
Dining Out Guide
Good food is a critical part of enjoying pinot. Here are some highlights: BOUNTY IN BOOK: Arroyo Grande Valley vintner Brian Talley celebrates his family’s more than half century of farming along the Central Coast in a new book called Our California Table. He’ll be selling and signing copies at the World of Pinot Noir event March 3 and 4.
The Talley family started farming in the Arroyo Grande Valley in 1948, but it wasn’t until they started making pinot and chardonnay in the early 1980s that their name became known across the Central Coast. Today, Brian and Johnine Talley lead the vineyard and winery operations and remain involved with their extended family in Talley Farms, which wholesales vegetables all around the country as well as through their popular CSA (community-supported agriculture) program. “That’s been such an incredible shot in the arm for our business,” said Brian of this direct-to-consumer option they now offer to fans from San Luis Obispo to northern Santa Barbara County. This year, the Talleys are releasing a beautiful book of family lore and recipes called Our California Table: Celebrating the Seasons with the Talley Family. Featuring photographs by Lompoc’s own Jeremy Ball, the book, which was written by Brian, discusses the value of family, profiles various vegetables and fruits that they grow, and gives a very halcyon tint to the present, enough to make any Central Coast resident proud. Brian will sign copies of Our California Table during the main tastings on Friday and Saturday, as guests sip on wine from more than 200 combined producers and nibble bites from C’est Cheese. See talleyvineyards.com.

hough it took the Hollywood help of Sideways — let’s just get that mandatory nod out of the way — pinot noir was always primed for the spotlight.

peTer CHam @ FinCH & Fork
since 2016, Peter Cham combines farm-driven California cuisine with creativity, inspiring his menus seasonally with an electric array of new culinary pop-ups around town. Résumé: An artist and chef, Cham is a culinary grad of City College of San Francisco, having staged at such notable restaurants as Coi, Quince, and Fifth Floor in San Francisco. A Santa Barbara native, he returned in 2015 as the chef de cuisine at Hungry Cat.
weekly markets, Finch & Fork’s West carrillo street, menu changes seasonally. This winter, try the roasted heirloom finchandforkrestaurant.com carrots with a vadouvan spice, topped with honey, crispy shallots, and a mint yogurt. “I love Santa Barbara and its farmers’ markets,” said Cham. “I recognize the same farmers weekly; it’s nice to build those relationships into our menus.” One of Cham’s favorite specials is Thursday’s Pork & Cork. Billed as “Pork. Done 52 Ways,” this rotating night offers a main pork dish alongside a glass of wine. From Cuban to Italian to Cambodian, anything goes. “This night is always incredibly fun for us,” said Cham. “We love to push ourselves to do something different, to venture outside the box and experiment.”
Eat ramen to support Chefs Cycle: Cham will be joining
his Finch & Fork colleague Chef James Siao and dozens of other California kitchen stars in this year’s Chefs Cycle, a three-day, 300-mile ride to benefit No Kid Hungry. To raise money for the ride, Cham will be hosting a Ramen Pop-Up on Saturday, February 25, at Telegraph Brewing Co. and again on Saturday, March 4, at M.Special Brewing Co. in Goleta. The winner of the 2016 Ramenfest at The Goodland Hotel, Cham loves the fatty goodness of his tonkotsu ramen. Paired with braised or smoked pork belly and a marinated egg, the toppings can change but the rich broth remains. So slurp away for a good cause. Cham is also hosting his own benefit for the Chef’s Cycle: Chamily Meal, a seven-course pop-up dinner at Sama Sama Kitchen on Tuesday, March 21.

ART STARS: Nathan Vonk (center) is the new owner at Sullivan Goss, where Jeremy Tessmer and Susan Bush are curators.
have been polished to a rare glow, by the unstinting efforts of Goss and his team. Encompassing everything from plein-air landscapes and discreet still lifes to hardedge abstraction and finish-fetish minimalism, the shows at Sullivan Goss have educated a generation of artists, collectors, and citizens about the enduring significance of California in the history of American art. At times functioning more like a small museum than a traditional gallery, Sullivan Goss has been responsible for the publication of dozens of beautiful books, including the excellent first-ever monograph on Ray Strong, Ray Strong: American Artist, in 2015. For Vonk, the acquisition of the gallery represents an investment in his personal passion for fine art and in the future of Santa Barbara. Backed by the curatorial team of Jeremy Tessmer and Susan Bush,
he has ambitious plans for the coming years, including a major show of work by Pitcher as soon as spring 2017. Vonk’s ability to fund the purchase stems from a remarkably similar experience in which he went from employee to owner of a small business back in 2008. “I was teaching at Ventura College at night, and during the day I worked for a dog-walking company,” he told me. “As I became more and more involved in running that business, and as it became increasingly successful, the owners decided that they wanted to retire, and they asked me if I would buy them out. I did, and that’s how I got my stake as a small business owner,” Vonk said. Going from walking dogs to deciding what’s on the walls in a prestigious art gallery is quite a journey. Here’s to the continued success of a beloved Santa Barbara institution. —Charles Donelan
Jazz HeroeS and villainS
This February, young musicians from the Boys & Girls Club’s Notes for Notes program educated area junior high students about Black History Month with one of the most powerful teaching tools around: music. With a string of school performances, The Jazz Villains, a group of 12- to 16-year-old musicians who attend Notes for Notes, partnered with the S.B. Blues Society and performed a set of African-American spirituals, jazz, and blues standards alongside a presentation by S.B. Blues Society boardmember and S.B. High School teacher Eric Nichoson. They’re “telling the story of how one of America’s few original art forms, the blues, runs parallel with African-American history,” said Notes for Notes metro manager Kris Ehrman, with a set list spanning musical history, from the triangular trade to the civil rights movement. THEY GOT THAT SWING: From left, Iyana, Sergio, and Angel C. of The Jazz Villains perform The performances have been a huge success for the band, Duke Ellington as part of a live music lesson in blues, jazz, and spiritual music. a sextet directed by program director David Rojas.

ullivan Goss, An American Gallery has changed ownership. In a press release dated February 10, 2017, the Central Coast institution announced that longtime gallery employee Nathan Vonk is the new owner of the business that Frank Goss and Patricia Sullivan Goss brought to Santa Barbara from its original location in Sierra Madre in 1994. In a conversation on Thursday, February 16, Vonk expressed his excitement about the opportunity and his determination to preserve and extend the legacy of the gallery’s original owners.“We’re not going to change the gallery’s name or its mission,” said Vonk. “I love Sullivan Goss. I put everything I have on the line to purchase the whole business—the name, the inventory, and the lease — because I believe in what we are doing here. If I could have made this happen without anyone even noticing, I would have done that,” he added. Known internationally for his vast knowledge of American art and his extreme devotion to forwarding the reputations of California artists, Frank Goss has spent more than two decades at the center of the Santa Barbara art scene. No one has done more to advance the careers of fine artists in this city than him. While representing such contemporary giants as Hank Pitcher, Nicole Strasburg, John Nava, Meredith Brooks Abbott, and Angela Perko, Goss has cultivated a thriving market for the work of a remarkable roster of historically important figures. Lockwood de Forest, Colin Campbell Cooper, Leon Dabo, Anya Fisher, and Nell Brooker Mayhew are just a few of the artists whose estates have been tended and documented, and whose reputations
Richard North, leader of the UCSB Gamelan Ensemble, who performs its quarterly concert in the UCSB Music Department Bowl next Wednesday, March 1, remembers the first time he ever heard the entrancing Indonesian music at a music festival in 1971. “I immediately fell in love with its rich textures and complex multilayered rhythms — not to mention the visual beauty of the carved and painted instruments,” he said. “The feeling of being surrounded by the vibrations from the pulsing gongs, flutes, and xylophones is simply incomparable.” For those who have never felt this indeed incomparable vibration, a holy chorus of chiming, twinkling, and deep droning sounds from metallic percussive instruments, it is the traditional ensemble music of Java and Bali, a music that has taken root in UCSB since its founding around 1986 by Donn Howell. North took on the usually 15-member ensemble in the spring of 2015 after Howell’s retirement and has focused on the music from the ancient kingdom of Cirebon, “known for its liveliness, energy, and village atmosphere. It’s pretty fun stuff!” Unlike Western classical music, with its emphasis on virtuosic individuality, there is less specialization in gamelan music. “Indonesian gamelan music is fundamentally, deeply communal. Each musician is expected to not only know her/his musical part but to understand (and hopefully be able to play) their fellow musicians’ parts, as well,” North said. “Musicians are constantly responding to subtle cues from each other. Playing your instrument is less than half the job of a Gamelan musician. Our main focus is on listening.” Others are listening beyond UCSB. In August 2016, six members of the group traveled to Cirebon, Indonesia, where they were invited to perform in both regal palaces and villages throughout the region. The cross-culturalism continues, and the March 1 performance will also feature a lively traditional masked dance learned by one of the ensemble’s members on that trip. For those who can’t attend but are interested in hearing more, or even possibly playing, the community gamelan ensemble Sinar Surya (which means “the Rays of the Sun “), also led by North, meets twice weekly and will be performing in a joint concert with the UCSB Gamelan Ensemble in June. —RD

t’s been almost a century since the great Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca encountered his destiny in Madrid, where the then19-year-old son of a great Andalusian landowner met the pair who would become his main amigos at the University of Madrid: Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí. Under their influence, he wrote and produced his first play, a tragic love stor y ab out t he EntErs a nEw CEntury impossible desire of a butterfly for a cucaraby Charles Donelan cha. García Lorca’s youthful infatuation with surrealism was relatively brief, yet the movement’s premise, that art should reflect the subconscious mind, remained an essential aspect of his aesthetic until his untimely death in 1936, when it appears that he was assassinated by Spanish nationalists. On February 24, the Westmont College Festival Theatre will open a two-weekend run of one of García Lorca’s three most important works, Blood Wedding. I say one of three because the play is part of a famous trilogy along with The House of Bernarda Alba and Yerma. Taken together, García Lorca’s three tragedies are among the only 20th-century works that can stand up in direct comparison with the tragic trilogies of Ancient Greece. Westmont’s Mitchell Thomas is directing a cast that includes the splendid Anna Telfer as Bride, Karly Kuntz as Mother, and Troy Chimuma as Leonardo. It’s a great choice for this moment in history. García Lorca lost his life to a dictatorship that could not tolerate this outspoken gay artist and his socialism, and thus had

him murdered. His art reflects the turmoil of his times with grace and urgency, offering a humane vision of what it means to be trapped in a society that cannot, or will not, meet your most basic needs. In a bold reimagining of the work for this new century, Thomas has set it in rural America, rather than in southern Spain, and collaborated with his actors and his creative team on a version in which the movement “lives on a subconscious level,” according to the director. Eric Ederer has supplied the score, and students onstage will play the banjo, fiddle, and guitar.

a walk in the woods INDEPENDENT The Plaza Playhouse Theater and DIJO(2Productions present... 1/5 page col. (3.833”) x 6.25")
WhaT abouT russIa? W hen Ed Giron and William Waxman walk onstage at Carpinteria’s Plaza Playhouse Theater this weekend, they will be portraying two men wrapped up in a conflict that is perhaps more alive now than it was when A Walk in the Woods was written in the late 1980s. Lee Blessing’s drama tells the story of two diplomats, one an experienced Russian arms treaty negotiator played by Giron, and the other an idealistic younger American played by rEvEals thE PErsonal sidE of Waxman. Based on a Nuclear Diplomacy real incident that took place in the woods outby Charles Donelan side of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1982, it portrays how these two men exited the formal proceedings of a nuclear arms nonproliferation meeting between the superpowers to take the title’s “walk in the woods” and get to know each other as people. In the process, they develop a new strategy for de-escalating the mutual buildup of weapons of mass destruction. Needless to say, the subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union as a Communist state has not rendered the Russian nuclear arsenal less of a threat. If anything, the current uncertainty about U.S.-Russian relations is more confused and unstable than it was during the Cold War. Speaking with Giron last week about the experience of rehearsing this play in February 2017, he cited a particular night on which the actors and director Jerry Oshinsky all happened to hear about potential Russian interference in the recent presidential election at the same time. “As we began running

our lines, many of which deal with the irrationality of using potential nuclear destruction as a political bargaining chip, the rehearsal suddenly got emotional,” he said, adding that “everyone realized that the high stakes of this game are real, and that it’s happening right now.” Fans of the DIJO team’s previous historical dramas such as the Indy Award–winning Frost/Nixon won’t want to miss this latest addition to their distinguished repertoire.

The night, overall, was a delight. Narrator Cecil Gershwin Palmer was the consummate host, playing both a friend as intimate as the voice in your own head and also the terror of your midnight wonderings, capable of both kindly and scary intonations. Meg Bashwiner was lovely and hilarious as emcee and the sentient haze Deb, a lively spark of a performer. If there’s one critique, it’s that the narrative felt emotionally unbalanced, snowballing all its serious weight into the lopsided final act, when the emotionalism felt overdetermined. But with a show this smart and entertaining, it’s exciting to know their true masterpiece is likely yet to come. — Richie DeMaria david bazemore

Live, it’s even better, as it adds a human face and the dynamism of live theater to the aural experience. On Valentine’s Day, the cast of the UCSB-alum-created podcast visited the Lobero Theatre for a spooky night of Ghost Stories, a very entertaining experience abuzz with the kind of in-joke enthusiasm of a Rocky Horror screening.

Foremost in this regard is Jazmine Bang, whose plays Ceci, a teenage girl reduced to a vegetative state by a car accident. The way the role is written requires that the actress shift seamlessly back and forth between her present, incapacitated self and the active, passionate girl she could have been. Other roles, while not split in two like that of Ceci, nevertheless ask that the actors make transitions that are nearly as demanding. Rosslyn Cornejo and Byron Torres play Rosa and Claudio, the married couple in whose home the story takes place. Playing people who could easily be their parents, at least in terms of age, both succeed in making the audience forget that these are college students, and young ones at that. As the broth-

ers Rene and Misha, Elias Reyes and Oliver Rubey are wonderfully memorable, with Reyes bringing an indelible and distinctive physical characterization to his part as Rene, and Rubey handling a large share of responsibility for the coherence of the evening in the key role of Misha. As Alvaro, Bruce Terrance is onstage slightly less than the rest, but he makes every minute count as the smoldering love object of multiple hearts. As is clear from the title, this play revolves around Lydia, the Mexican immigrant who comes to take care of Ceci and who ends by turning the household upside down. In that part Verenice Zuniga glows, her radiant smile a beacon of hope in a sea of secrets and stifling misery. That this does not necessarily mean that things will all work out is just one of the reasons that Lydia is such a refreshing take on what a contemporary play can be. — Charles Donelan

he festive atmosphere of a holiday weekend, combined with the warm sense of community that’s always present whenever dancers and their fans gather, made a perfect setting for this President’s Day offering, which included three different but equally gratifying recent works of choreography. The opener, (con)version, by Kassandra Taylor Newberry, was last seen by a Santa Barbara audience at the New Vic in May as part of Women’s Work, State Street Ballet’s spring festival of new choreography. This snappy, sock-happy piece features a duo, Meredith Harrill and Thomas Fant, interacting with an ensemble of nine. It’s fast, it’s witty, and it looked better than ever on the broad At the Granada Granada stage. Theatre, Sat., William Soleau’s Five Feb. 18. by Gershwin showed the company at its most swinging and fluid. The format juxtaposed three pairs of dancers —Leila Drake and Ryan Camou, Harrill and Noam Tsivkin, and Deise Mendonça and Mauricio Vera—in a series of parallel duets, and thus augmented the jaunty exuberance of social dancing with the athleticism and precision of ballet. Toward the end of intermission, while the happy crowd remained on its feet, chatting amiably, a lone figure appeared onstage and began to grapple with a bare branch. This was one beginning of Edgar Zendejas’s Rite of Spring. Another came a few minutes later, with the house lights properly dimmed, when
drawn-out exhalations of smooth energy and beautifully expressive bursts of humanity — through his horn, you somehow felt his soul. Speaking of soul, keyboardist Cameron Graves, who held it down on piano during epic pieces such as “Change of the Guard,” also contributed a work of his own, “The Soulness,” with some downright stanky keyboard that would make George Clinton proud. It was certainly cool to see a band of musicians who have known each other for so long —Washington grew up with many of these players—and to be invited into their groove. — RD Rite of Spring

the music began and the curtain rose just a few feet, exposing only the improbably dangling legs of the rest of the company. Hidden above the waist by the curtain, the dancers hung from a horizontal beam that ran the width of the stage. Although invisible wires quickly whisked away the beam and the curtain, the surprise of this unexpected initial image lingered throughout this mysterious, deeply mythological composition. Working in large, complex physical associations, the 16 dancers in Rite of Spring conjured a world in which individual fate depends on the community. On some days you ride high, borne aloft by society; on others, you capsize. Yet even when your legs fly off above your head, you still depend on and remain part of the same crowd. It’s a powerful, if enigmatic lesson, and one that resonates both with the jagged modern music of Igor Stravinsky and the unsettled mood of our current moment. — CD independent.com

middle-aged working British mothers who decided to row across the Atlantic Ocean, to the great surprise of their families. In Iran: A Skier’s Journey, two skiers go against the precautions of friends and family and find a rich skiing culture in the deeply religious country. Mountain bikes are the main feature in Max Your Days, about a wicked fun summer solstice on Canada’s West Coast; in Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out, where the Scottish star bikes around his home countryside; and in Shift, wherein an indigenous Yukon community transforms itself into a world-class mountain biking destination. And there are stories of solitude and struggle, such as Ace and the Desert Dog, where adventure photographer Ace Kvale spends 60 days in the Utah canyon country for his 60th birthday, or Doing It Scared, where climber Paul Pritchard returns to scale the site of a climb that partially paralyzed him.

Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out
Canadian short DreamRide is a lushly shot ride through a dense, fern-filled rainforest on mountain bike, a fiveminute short of wheeled adrenaline past ancient trees. Others, such as Dog Power and The Super Salmon, fix their lens on animals. The former, an American film, is a fascinating look at dog-powered sports and the owners, athletes, and trainers who bond with these special canines as they mush along. In Super Salmon, the fish of focus swims against plans to build a hydroelectric dam in Alaska’s Susitna River. Others are a different kind of adventure altogether. Sure to be one of the more inspiring highlights of the festival, Metronomic looks at a team of artists and high-level balancing athletes who create a sky-borne symphony on sheer cliffs. Sea Gypsies: The Far Side of the World puts the viewer onboard the Infinity, a 120-foot, hand-built sailing ketch with a nomadic crew who journey 12,800 kilometers from New Zealand to Patagonia. Poumaka is a personal story, following American bouldering champion Angie Payne; she leaves behind her usual stomping grounds to discover the French Polynesian jungle with veteran explorer Mike Libecki (who spoke in town last year as part of Arts & Lectures’ Nat Geo series).

a&e | film & TV cont’d from p. 57 NOW SHOWiNG A Cure for Wellness (146 mins., R) Director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean, Rango) helms this mystery thriller about a young executive who goes to a spa in the Swiss Alps to retrieve the CEO of the company he works for. He soon discovers the “wellness center” is not what it seems, as the guests never leave. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 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, the 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 Disneylike 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)
Everybody Loves Somebody (102 mins., PG-13)
This bilingual rom-com by Mexican filmmaker Catalina Aguilar Mastretta is about a successful gynecologist whose love life gets a kick start after a family wedding in Baja. Metro 4 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
Fist Fight Fist Fight (91 mins., R) I was unsurprised by the numerous debaucherous acts that overtake the halls of director Richie Keen’s fictional high school on the last day before summer vacation and senior prank day; the man has written for raunchy comedies
such as It’s Always Sunny, Shameless, and Maron. Nothing is off-limits in this adult-friendly comedy — not even an elementary-school-aged girl dropping the F bomb, Mr. Strickland (Ice Cube) swinging an axe at a student’s desk, or a meth-addicted female teacher (Jillian Bell) joking about having sex with a student. Not only are the crude jokes unfunny, but the characters perpetuate inappropriate ideas of masculinity, femininity, and what it means to stick up for yourself. This buddy comedy could have made a much more impactful point of how teachers are treated in America’s public schools if it hadn’t made such a mockery of it — and if the burning question in my mind the entire film wasn’t “When will this be over?” (SM)
The Great Wall (103 mins., PG-13) Billed as an action/adventure/fantasy film, The Great Wall tells the story of European mercenaries who, while searching for “black powder,” come under attack from a monster, leaving only two men, William and Tovar, alive. After their escape, the men join forces with the Chinese to defend the Great Wall. Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, and Willem Dafoe star. Camino Real/Metro 4

Based on a true story, this biopic depicts the deeply rooted attitudes practiced before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which made segregation illegal. It’s a story of how human resilience, compassion, and knowledge superseded NASA’s bureaucratic mandates of segregation and allowed three African-American women — played by Taraji P.

OThe Lego Batman Movie
(104 mins., PG)
The Lego Movie of 2014 was a surprise smash hit with children and adults alike. Audiences were enamored of the catchy tunes, spectacularly nostalgic concepts, and stellar animation and voice acting. The follow-up, or rather spin-off, The Lego Batman Movie is a well-executed follow-through on most of what made the original so successful. This time, the live-action bits are cut out and the story lives entirely in the realm of fiction: Batman’s fictional Gotham to be exact. As our hero deals with his storied villains, he must also deal with commitment issues and the meaning of family. The reverence with which the directors handle the Batman lore in all of its absurdity shows a care that only fans of the series could pull off. Even if you never saw The Lego Movie, take it upon yourself to visit the theaters for this one. (JT)

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

This is a sequel in the most direct sense, taking place within weeks of the original as the titular character retrieves the last item stolen from him: his car. It’s a wonderful reintroduction into just what kind of world— world and what kind of movie — John Wick operates in. This go-around, John is forced into diving into the world of assassins once more to satisfy a debt. There are, of course, high-octane car scenes, intense and brutal action pieces, and obvious yet deep betrayals along the way. Once again, Keanu Reeves shows us what he is good at: the brooding, reluctant hero who must use a “particular set of skills” to get what he wants. The music is fantastic, the choreography solid, and, most importantly, the film knows what it is: action at its finest. (JT)

“Who is you, man? Who is you, Chiron?” Can a bullied black gay boy, growing up poor in Florida with a drugaddicted mother, ever get to answer that truthfully? Walking a tightrope between tragedy and hope, between hard reality and lyrical filmmaking, Moonlight depicts three pivotal chapters in the life of Chiron, superbly played by three dif different actors. His story is so real, so true, so haunting, it feels as if you’re living it with him. Written and directed by Barry Jenkins and based on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue by Tarell Alvin McCraney, its impressive accolades are well-deserved. If you go to the movies to fall in love, have your heart broken, and walk out with your humanity affirmed, then go see Moonlight. (HDK) Metro 4

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of febRuaRy 23 ARIES
(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): My astrological radar suggests there’s a space-time anomaly looming just ahead of you. Is it a fun and exotic limbo where the rules are flexible and everything’s an experiment? That might be cool. Or is it more like an alien labyrinth where nothing is as it seems, you can hear howling in the distance, and you barely recognize yourself? That might be weird. What do you think? Is it worth the gamble? If so, full speed ahead. If not, I suggest a course correction.
(June 21 - July 22): “I like the word ‘bewilderment’ because it has both ‘be’ and ‘wild’ in it,” says poet Peter Gizzi. I propose that you go even further, Cancerian: Express a fondness for the actual experience of bewilderment as well as the word. In fact, be willing to not just tolerate, but actually embrace the fuzzy blessings of bewilderment. In the coming weeks, that’s your ticket to being wild in the healthiest (and wealthiest) ways. As you wander innocently through the perplexing mysteries that make themselves available, you’ll be inspired to escape formalities and needless rules that have kept you overly tame.
(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): How would Buddha ask for a raise or promotion? How would Jesus tinker with his career plans as he took into consideration large-scale shifts in the economy? How would Confucius try to infuse new approaches and ideas into the status quo of his work environment? Ruminate deeply on these matters, dear Libra. Your yearning to be more satisfyingly employed may soon be rewarded — especially if you infuse your ambitions with holy insight. How would Joan of Arc break through the glass ceiling? How would Harriet Tubman deal with the inefficiencies caused by excess testosterone? How would Hildegard of Bingen seek more emotional richness on the job?
(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): The near future will be mutable, whimsical, and fluky. It’ll be serendipitous, mercurial, and extemporaneous. You should expect happy accidents and lucky breaks. Your ability to improvise will be quite valuable. Do you believe in lucky numbers? Even if you don’t, yours will be 333. Your sacred password will be “quirky plucky.” The cartoon characters with whom you will have most in common are Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner. The place where you’re most likely to encounter a crucial teaching is a threshold or thrift shop. Your colors of destiny will be flecked and dappled. (P.S.: I suspect that an as-yet-undiscovered talisman of power is crammed in a drawer full of junk.)
(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): I suspect you would benefit from acquiring a new bedroom name, my dear. But should I be the one to give it to you? I’m not sure. Maybe you could invite a practical dreamer you adore to provide you with this crazy sweet new moniker. If there is no such person to do the job (although given the current astrological omens, I bet there is), I’ll offer the following array of amorous aliases for you to choose from: Wild Face ... Kiss Genius ... Thrill Witch ... Freaky Nectar ... Boink Master ... Lust Moxie ... Pearly Thunder ... Peach Licker ... Painkiller ... Silky Bliss ... Slippery Diver ... Swoon Craver.
(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Treat your body like a sublime temple, please. And regard your imagination as a treasured sanctuary. Be very choosy about what you allow to enter in to both of those holy places. This strategy is always a wise idea, of course, but it’s especially so now, when you are extra sensitive to the influences you absorb. It’s crucial that you express maximum discernment as you determine which foods, drinks, drugs, images, sounds, and ideas are likely to foster your maximum well-being — and which aren’t. Be a masterful caretaker of your health and sanity.
(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): What would your best mother do in a situation like this? Please note that I’m not asking, “What would your mother do?” I’m not suggesting you call on the counsel of your actual mother. When I use the term “your best mother,” I’m referring to the archetype of your perfect mother. Imagine a wise older woman who understands you telepathically, loves you unconditionally, and wants you to live your life according to your own inner necessity, not hers or anyone else’s. Visualize her. Call on her. Seek her blessings.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Someone on Reddit.com asked readers to respond to the question, “What is the most liberating thought you’ve ever had?” Among the replies were the following six: (1) “If new evidence presents itself, it’s okay to change my beliefs.” (2) “I get to choose who’s in my life and who isn’t.” (3) “I am not my history.” (4) “You can’t change something that has already happened, so stop worrying about it.” (5) “I am not, nor will I ever be, conventionally beautiful.” (6) “I don’t have to respond to people when they say stupid s— to me.” I hope these testimonies inspire you to come up with several of your own, Taurus. It’s a perfect time to formulate liberating intentions.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): It has been a while since I told you that I love you. So I’m doing it now. I LOVE YOU. More than you could ever imagine. And that’s why I continue to offer these horoscopes to you free of charge, with no strings attached. That’s why I work so hard to be a playful therapist and an edgy mentor for you. That’s why I am so tenacious in my efforts to serve you as a feminist father figure and a kindly devil’s advocate and a sacred cheerleader. Again, I don’t expect anything in return from you. But if you would like to express your appreciation, you could do so by offering a similar type of well-crafted care to people in your own sphere. Now would be an excellent time to give such gifts. Homework: Find a new person or institution you can eagerly and earnestly respect. Report on your triumph at Freewillastrology.com.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Are you familiar with psychologist Carl Jung’s concept of the shadow? It’s the unflattering or uncomfortable part of you that you would prefer to ignore or suppress. It’s the source of behavior about which you later say,“I wasn’t acting like myself.” Jungians say that the shadow hounds you and wounds you to the degree that you refuse to deal with it. But if you negotiate with it, it leads you to beautiful surprises. It prods you to uncover riches you’ve hidden from yourself. I mention this, Leo, because any shadow work you do in the coming weeks could generate rather spectacular breakthroughs.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): You could make a vow like this: “Between now and April 15, I will be relentless in getting my needs met. I will harbor a steely resolve to call on every ploy necessary to ensure that my deepest requirements are not just gratified, but satiated to the max. I will be a dogged and ferocious seeker of absolute fulfillment.” If you want to swear an oath like that, Virgo, I understand. But I hope you will try a softer approach — more like the following: “Between now and April 15, I will be imaginative and ingenious in getting my needs met. I will have fun calling on every trick necessary to ensure that my deepest requirements are playfully addressed. I will be a sweet seeker of unpredictable fulfillment.”
(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Soon I’ll be off on my first vacation in 18 months. At first glance it might seem odd for an astrologer like myself to have selected two Sagittarians to be my housesitters. Members of your sign are reputed to be among the least home-nurturing people in the zodiac. But I’m confident that by the time I return, raccoons won’t be living in my kitchen, nor will my plants be dead or my snailmail stolen or my TV broken. The current astrological omens suggest that most of you Centaurs, at least for the foreseeable future, will display an uncommon aptitude for the domestic arts.

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
