news Briefs LAW & DISORDER A Santa Maria jury deliberated four hours before throwing out charges that Orcutt rapper Anthony Murillo — who performs under the name “Lil A”— threatened two teen sexual-assault vicA” tims with the words of a song, “Moment for Life Remix,” in 2013. In his lyrics, he called out two girls younger than 18 by their real names and vowed to hunt them down for testifying against his friend Shane Villalpando, who was ultimately sentenced to a year in jail for three counts of unlawful intercourse with minors. The case went to trial only after an appellate court ruled that the song could be construed as a true threat by a “reasonable listener.”
nO nEED: Property owners complained that the city’s proposed set of tenant protection rules was too onerous and far-reaching.
Landlords Resist Tenant Protections Renters Mobilize Own Efforts to Combat Housing Crisis
by Tyler Hayden
he tale of Santa Barbara’s two cities was told again and again Tuesday evening as landlords and tenants turned out in droves to debate a menu of proposed protections for renters before the City Council. The discussion was prompted by spiking rental rates, mass evictions, criminally poor living conditions, and an excruciatingly low vacancy rate, all of which have plagued Santa Barbara for decades but appear to have reached a tipping point as tenants — who make up 60 percent of residents—are using greater force to bend the ears of city leaders to address the overall housing crisis. On the table were five strategies for the council to consider: an enhanced mediation program meant to resolve landlord-tenant conflicts; a requirement that landlords offer one-year leases to provide a greater level of housing stability; the creation of a safetyinspection program to ensure basic habitability standards; the implementation of a “just cause” eviction ordinance that would prohibit evictions except under specific circumstances; and, lastly, the adoption of rent-control measures to slow climbing rental rates. Landlords put on a show of strength to oppose the package of tenant protections. Many of them were alerted to the meeting by a Santa Barbara Rental Property Association email, which featured a screaming headline warning members of impending “Rent Control!” The night before, more than 200 property owners convened at the DoubleTree Resort to strategize. The meeting was closed to reporters, and association director Laura Bode declined an interview afterward. When City Attorney Ariel Calonne
expressed disappointment over Bode’s message, she responded that her intention was to “bring people together” to develop common solutions. The council chambers overflowed with landlords who arrived early to the 6 p.m. hearing to secure seating and a chance to speak. The majority described themselves as mom-and-pop operators who maintain a small number of units and collect modest rent checks. They rejected the image of greedy landlords squeezing and evicting helpless renters, and they worried onerous regulations would eat into their livelihoods and derail retirement plans. Many pointed to the problems spawned by rent control ordinances in San Francisco and Santa Monica, and others warned government involvement would strain relations across the board. “These are bad ideas,” said Tommy Thompson with the California Apartment Association. “Rent control, just-cause evictions —these are things that ruin communities.” David Kim, speaking on behalf of the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors, cautioned against blanket regulations that would cause the “whole community to suf suffer” when only a fraction of landlords mistreat their tenants. Landlord Dario Pini’s name was mentioned more than once. In a letter to the council, the association also outlined several existing policies meant to chip away at the housing crisis—the city’s affordable-housing program, density bonus incentives, a tenantdisplacement-assistance ordinance, and so on. Let’s concentrate on those methods, said Kim, rather than set more rules. The frustration of property owners boiled over on occasion. A few called the tenant-pro-
tection package a “handout,” claimed reports of rent increases were “lies,” and described mandatory safety inspections as “government intrusion.” Wagging his finger at the council, Frank Cox demanded: “Keep your hands off my properties and off my tenants!” Michelle Salmon repeated, “I don’t like to be told what to do,” and then refused to yield the microphone. Toward the latter part of the five-hour hearing, tenants who’d been forced to wait outside took their turn at the podium. “Some of these property owners, despite being elder in years, are acting like children,” said Kyle Lee. “You live in a country with rules and regulations. Sometimes people are going to tell you what to do.” Speaker after speaker described the challenges of renting in a drum-tight market where landlords hold all the cards. “Finding a rental is like the Hunger Games in Santa Barbara,” said Hillary Blackerby.“It’s very, very intense.” She said it’s important to recognize the vulnerability of renters in such a power dynamic. “For owners, it’s their investment. For renters, it’s our shelter.” California Democratic Party Secretary Daraka Larimore-Hall agreed.“Please, can we not be naive about our conversation and act as if the landlord-renter relationship is one of equality?” he asked. Santa Barbara City College President Anthony Beebe said he supported a justcause eviction ordinance.“Hardly a week goes by that the college hears of students getting evicted with short notice for no reason,” he said. Frank Rodriguez, a lead organizer with CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy), was similarly in favor, recalling the mass evictions that took place over the holidays last year at the Ivy Apart-
Mail fraud and check theft have been plaguing cities from Oxnard to Goleta recently. Police recently caught two women (pictured) on bank video who were holding checks stolen from mailboxes and were asking bank customers to please help them. They claimed they had no identification and were not customers of the bank; they would plead for help in cashing the check. Anyone with information is asked to call Santa Barbara Police at 897-2327. Citizens are reminded to halt mail when on vacation, pick up checks at the bank, give mail directly to the post office, and to secure mailboxes with a lock.
cIty Under a steady spray of light rain, the City Council voted 5-2 to lift the mandatory ban on lawn watering that it had adopted just three months ago and to replace it with a voluntary ban instead. The council majority also voted to ease up on the level of conservation demanded of city residents, dropping the 40 percent target down to 30 percent. The heavy rains that pummeled the South Coast throughout February helped fill Lake Cachuma to the halfway mark and the Gibraltar Reservoir to the top. City water planners Joshua Haggmark and Kelley Dyer cautioned that the drought is far from over but agreed that residents had earned a respite from the “drought fatigue” caused by six of the hottest, driest years on record.
cOunty In a 3-2 split, county supervisors voted to increase building-permit fees after hiring consulting firm MGT of America two years ago to analyze prices. Permits to build a 2,000-square-foot, single-family home, for instance, will increase from about $4,000 to $6,380. Fiscal conservatives complained most builders are already subsidizing the department by paying taxes and noted similar fees in San Luis Obispo County were much cheaper. In S.L.O., that building permit is about

The Republicans’ much-embattled Affordable Care Act repeal legislation — the American Health Care Act — passed the House Budget Committee, on which Santa Barbara Congressmember Salud Carbajal sits, by a 19-17 vote on 3/16. Explaining that it “shafted the middle class,” Carbajal voted against the bill with all the Democrats on the committee, as well as three Republicans who objected the bill doesn’t go far enough to contain entitlement creep among Medicaid recipients. Amendments were offered on Medicaid this week, including provisions requiring recipients to work and allowing block grants for states. The full House vote is expected on 3/23.

The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County has moved $450,000 closer to paying off its purchase of 21 undeveloped oceanfront acres in Carpinteria that had long been eyeballed by hotel and resort developers. With a $3 million down payment last June, the Land Trust picked up the Carp Bluffs III property (pictured), located just east of Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve, for $6 million and has since rallied donations from the community and applied for grants to help chip away at the balance. The recent $450,000 payment comes from California’s Environmental Enhancement and n Mitigation Program.

A flowering plant that hasn’t been seen on the Channel Islands in more than a century was recorded for the first time on Santa Barbara Island recently. Prior to this discovery, white mallow (Eremalche exilis) was last recorded on Santa Cruz and Santa Catalina islands in 1888 and 1902, respectively. Related to hibiscus, its white or pale purple flowers measure about five millimeters across.

However, the K-8 will no longer offer 7th and 8th grades starting in the fall, and La Colina Principal David Ortiz will oversee both schools. Tashma said that OAS has been ramping up its recruiting efforts and will be relying more on private donations to pick up any slack created by districtwide budgetary adjustments. —Keith Hamm

ACLU Mounts a Comeback Initiates Full-Court Press on Trump
by Nick Welsh
he presidency of Donald Trump has fueled tremendous interest in the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). That membership has tripled both nationally and in Santa Barbara County. This jump has ACLU leaders scrambling to accomodate, engage, and direct this tsunami of new enthusiasm.Hector Villagra, executive director of the ACLU of Southern California, told the gathering at a Wine Cask fundraiser that the ACLU was one of the few groups that took Trump both seriously and literally from the minute he became the Republican nominee. The organization — with chapters in 50 states and a staff of 300 attorneys—had already prepared a series of “Trump Memos,” so that on Election Day, he said,“we had our marching orders in place.” Even before the inauguration, he said, the ACLU ran a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times, warning Trump: “If you do this, we’ll see you in court.” Then on Trump’s first day in office, they filed a Freedom of Information Act requesting all records relating to Trump’s private business interests. It’s been a full-court press ever since. When Trump announced his executive order barring citizens from seven countries — all with Muslim majorities — the ACLU filed five lawsuits against what Villagra termed “the Muslim ban.” “Trump issued his order on a Friday,” he said. “By Saturday afternoon, we had filed.” Trump’s amended ban is still objectionable on constitutional grounds, according to Villagra, since it still targets Muslims. The ACLU, which has seen a huge rise in its national membership, is now focused on a more activist, grassroots approach, one that might mesh well with Indivisible and other mass movements that have mushroomed in opposition to Trump’s agenda. Villagra, whose mother emigrated to the United States as a 14-year-old refugee from the Castro regime in 1962, said the ACLU has already filed lawsuits on behalf of immigrants facing deportation to ensure they have access to legal representation. Noncitizen immigrants may lack the right to
vote, he said, but they enjoy the same rights citizens have to due process. In deportation tribunals, he charged, it’s common for no judges to be present, let alone attorneys. If Trump lives up to his campaign rhetoric, 4.5 million immigrants will be deported in the first 18-24 months, and another 5 million after that. This would dwarf the record established by former president Barack Obama, whom Villagra described as the “deporter in chief ” for having overseen the deportation of 400,000 people a year during his two terms in office. ACLU attorneys, he said, have recently discovered cases where immigrants were picked up, processed, and deported within seven hours.“There have been mass denials of due process,” he said. More than 500 people have already attended constitutional-rights teach-ins sponsored by the Southern California ACLU, and plans are afoot, he said, to hold such an event in Santa Barbara. The organization has also held Constitution Day events at public middle schools teaching students their rights. Though Santa Barbara’s ACLU was disbanded two years ago as a result of an internal board dispute, a resurrected chapter is forming, with its membership numbers already tripled to 3,325. According to Richard Solomon, one of the organizers, a “core group” rather than a “board of directors will guide the new ACLU chapter,” and meetings will be open to members rather than the public at large. Solomon said that at the recent Santa Barbara Progressive Coalition meetings he has attended, interest in the ACLU, and the legal education and backup it can provide, has been palpable. But even as the new group is working to reconstitute itself, Solomon said they’re already planning a Know Your Rights forum at City College in May and one about the Muslim ban in June. Solomon, who participated in a Know Your Rights workshop organized by Legal Aid Foundation this past week at Our Lady of Guadalupe, printed 500 Spanish-language brochures at his own expense. n

The mission of DTSC is to protect California’s people and environment from harmful effects of toxic substances by restoring contaminated resources, enforcing hazardous waste laws, reducing hazardous waste generation, and encouraging the manufacture of chemically safer products.
EMERGENCY PERMIT University of California Santa Barbara Building 565, Mesa Road Santa Barbara, California 93106 On February 10, 2017, University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) requested an Emergency Permit from the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) for the transfer and treatment of expired chemicals found at Building 565, Mesa Road, Santa Barbara, California 93106. The items to be treated are approximately 6 Liters of Tetrahydrofuran, 1 Liter of Diethyl Ether, 100 grams of Picric Acid, 60 grams of Azidotrimethylsilane, 75 grams of Diethyl Azidocarboxylate, 2 Liter of Borane THF Complex and 200 grams of Diazald. Clean Harbors Environmental Services (CHES) has been contracted to conduct this treatment. The chemicals are potentially reactive and unsafe for transport. The treatment involves addition of liquid solution to the containers to stabilize the chemicals. Once the chemicals are treated, they will be transported offsite for proper management. DTSC has determined that the chemicals pose an imminent and substantial endangerment to human health and the environment and therefore an emergency permit should be issued. This Emergency Permit is effective from March 1, 2017 through March 31, 2017. The Emergency Permit includes measures to minimize any adverse impact to the community and the environment. CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT (CEQA): DTSC has determined that the project is exempt from the requirements of CEQA and filed a Notice of Exemption (NOE) with the State Clearinghouse on February 10, 2017. The Emergency Permit, NOE, and UCSB’s request (dated February 10, 2017; revised February 27, 2017) for this project are available for review at the following DTSC office: DTSC Sacramento Regional Office 8800 Cal Center Drive Sacramento, California 95826 (916) 255-3758, call for an appointment CONTACT INFORMATION: If you have any questions or concerns, please contact: Hiral Doshi Phil McPhaul Sandy Nax Project Manager Public Participation Public Information (916) 255-3742 Specialist Ofﬁcer Hiral.Doshi@dtsc.ca.gov (714) 484 5488 (916) 327-6114

Chumash Chair Reelected
enny Kahn won reelection last week after completing his first year as chair of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. Kahn ran unopposed after winning a special election last year after former chair Vincent Armenta unexpectedly stepped down. “I certainly am honored to have the confidence of the tribe from the beginning of the election process,” said Kahn, who has been a member of the Business Committee, the tribe’s five-member governing body, since 2003, when he was just 25 years old. Under Kahn’s leadership, the past year has been monumental for the tribe. Last summer, the Chumash opened a new 12-story hotel expansion, adding to their portfolio of a casino, three hotels, two gas stations, and a winery. Earlier this year, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) granted the tribe’s application to annex the 1,400-acre Camp 4 property. The county and other valley groups have appealed the decision. Neighbors have expressed skepticism of the tribe’s plans to build more housing on the site, but Kahn reiterated that intention this week and pledged not to start construction for nine months to “calm the nerves of anyone in the short term.” Earlier this month, the Chumash announced that Representative Doug LaMalfa, who represents a Northern California district, reintroduced legislation to affirm the BIA’s decision to annex Camp 4 into federal trust. Meanwhile, Kahn, Vice Chair Raul Armenta, and county supervisors Joan Hartmann and Das Williams have begun meeting privately, a departure from

Kenneth Kahn the public — and contentious — forums that frayed nerves on both sides. Another new element is the role of Congressmember Salud Carbajal, whose relationship with the tribe was considered friendlier than that of Lois Capps, his predecessor. As a county supervisor for the past 12 years, Carbajal voted against suing the tribe over its annexation plans. “I have always said that the best outcome of the tribe and county is one that is reached locally, and I still believe in that,” Carbajal said this week of the bill. Carbajal said he “understood” the tribe’s desire to pursue legislation but declined to say whether or not he would ultimately support the bill. “To say yes or no is not my posture at this point,” Carbajal said. “The reality is that it puts pressure on the parties to work in good faith to come up with an —Kelsey Brugger agreement.”

Members of the immigrant community, meanwhile, have begun to gather in churches and community centers to prepare emergency plans if ICE agents should suddenly detain them. The details of each plan depend on individual circumstances, explained Diane Martinez, director of Immigrant Hope, a nonprofit offering legal services on San Andres Street.“Think about every possible situation and fill out forms to cover each one,” Martinez told the 10 attentive participants on Monday evening. One woman, who has two daughters, ages 23 and 13, asked exactly how to arrange for her oldest to take care of the youngest should she be forced out of the country. Another asked if she could take her small child with her if she were deported. Another woman wanted to know if she should seek dual citizenship for her child born in America. Martinez went through a list of safety measures: Make copies of your marriage certificate, work authorization forms, and passports; talk to your employer about allowing someone to pick up your paycheck; add a second person to your bank account; ask a friend who is a U.S. citizen to be prepared to post $1,500 bail. Though it is frightening to arrange these exhaustive emergency plans, Martinez explained it is crucial for undocumented people do so before the Department of Homeland Security’s budget is approved and it receives funding to enforce mass detentions. Legal assistance groups such as Immigrant Hope and Legal Aid Foundation have received many requests for information, though it has been difficult to get large numbers to attend the five workshops that have been held in recent weeks. “People are scared to come to a meeting like this,” one woman explained. “A few years ago, people
by Kelsey Brugger n the midst of intense fears about President Donald Trump’s expanded immigration enforcement policies, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff ’s Office finds itself accused of “potentially endangering Americans” for refusing to cooperate with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) holds. “We were taken a little off guard by this report,” Sheriff Bill Brown said in an interview Tuesday evening. In the document released by ICE this week, Santa Barbara County was listed among dozens of jurisdictions in the country where sheriff’s officials declined to honor requests to detain immigrants beyond their local sentence. The report focused on only a one-week period in late January. In that time, the ICE report stated, the Sheriff’s Office declined to detain an inmate convicted of forgery. But Brown said his department could not identify anyone who fit that description. An ICE agent clarified the forgery charge is the individual’s most serious crime, not necessarily the most recent. The reporting period represents the time frame in which ICE became aware the detainer was declined, which could happen in several ways such as the individual was rearrested by another law enforcement agency. The report will be updated weekly, ICE said. The “noncooperation” charge comes as a surprise to many, as the Sheriff’s Office works with ICE agents on a weekly basis, allowing them free access to its databases and to interview foreign-born inmates. The office, however, does not hold inmates after their cases are adjudicated, as doing so would violate California’s TRUST (Transparency and Responsibility Using State Tools) Act. To his knowledge, Brown said, the same policy is true throughout the state.

be worked out at a later date. Rent control was taken completely off the table. “The fundamental problem is we have an extraordinarily low vacancy rate,” said Councilmember Gregg Hart. “The council has been struggling for many years with that issue. Today is step one.” Mayor Helene Schneider said she was “positive the vast majority of landlords want the best for their tenants,” but she acknowledged recent incidents that have caused tenants “tremendous pain.”“Our challenge is to create a set of rules to protect the most vulnerable.” Councilmembers Frank Hotchkiss and Randy Rowse were skeptical of new regulations. “When we, the government, get into trying to control the market, we never get to where we want to go,” said Rowse. “The market is a cruel teacher, but it does even things out in the end.” The decisions made on the mediation program and task force weren’t enough for Councilmember Cathy Murillo, who lobbied hard for just-cause evictions, an issue that’s taking on greater urgency in her Westside district, she said.“Right here, right now is our chance,” she pleaded to her colleagues.“I want to do more tonight.” Finding no support, she lamented, “It seemed like we were right on the edge of n doing the right thing.”

ment Home Complex on West Carrillo Street. Working families who had lived there for decades were left to sleep in their cars when the new owner, motivated by higher profits, ordered them to clear out, he said. Like a number of other tenants, Anna Marie Gott acknowledged the many property owners who treat their tenants fairly. But, she said, “we have some really terrible landlords. Some of them are sitting in this room.” They’ve turned apartments into illegal short-term vacation rentals, raised rents by as much as 20-30 percent, and evicted elderly residents, she claimed. Santa Barbara native Steve Storeman described the rent of his girlfriend, a graduate student, jumping 50 percent overnight.“I want to love this town, but it’s very hard when it feels like me, my friends, and my neighbors simply aren’t welcome.” By the end, the council declined to make any major decision, citing the late hour and the intricacies of the issue. But its members did make two minor moves. They voted to enhance the mediation program—which, last year, intervened in 1,478 disagreements—and to form a task force of landlords and tenants who will study the proposals for an inspection program, mandatory leases, and just-cause evictions.

were told they were going to win prizes, but when they showed up, immigration officers were there.” These are just one of the fears Martinez is trying to quell. Rumors about mass ICE raids continue to keep undocumented people off the streets, particularly after dark. Latino businesses catering to undocumented people have seen sharp declines in sales, the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics have had fewer patients, and Mexican restaurants have had fewer customers, though to a lesser degree because they tend to serve more U.S. citizens, explained Bea Molina, president of the board of the Milpas Community Association. “We keep telling people,‘Stop. You have to live your normal lives,’” Martinez said. “There are so many rumors. Children are coming home crying.” One distraught child was a little boy with autism whose parents feared what would happen if they were deported, said Molora Vadnais, director of the county’s Legal Aid Foundation.
“The upheaval of moving Mom and Dad was more than he could handle,” she said. “We can help out to some degree, but something like that … It puts a face on it. For the volunteers, I think it was a real eyeopener. There is really the possibility of this family being torn apart.” Another woman told Vadnais she worried ICE agents would leave her children on the side of the road after pulling her over and taking her away. “That’s a civil rights violation,” Vadnais said.“If you have a valid driver’s license — driving should not put you at risk in this county.” But, she said, “immigrants are watching CNN and other news outlets. They believe ICE is lying in wait.” Congressmember Salud Carbajal, who recently met with ICE officials, said he has been “assured that they are not going to do checkpoints or raids. They are not going to go to schools or churches. Even though, Carbajal said, “their message is ICE has much discretion and broad authority.” n

Survival of the Doggest
MARCH MADNESS: Vice President Mike Pence had made it clear he thinks little of Charles Darwin, having thoroughly dissed evolution as “just a theory.” Once again,
Pence finds himself on the wrong railroad track of history. And the light at the end of his tunnel—once again—is the oncoming train of Donald J. Trump, his boss. There’s no immediate record of Trump expounding on evolution, but given that he’s embraced “survival of the fittest” with all the ardor of a boa constrictor in heat, one can only assume he’s a big fan. As always with Trump, an unmistakable element of perversity is involved. I say this because Trump — as has been widely reported —won biggest in communities with the highest death rates among white voters. This demographic cohort in the United States is unique among all westernized industrial democracies: Its members have experienced an actual decline in life expectancy. In fact, this life expectancy decline emerged as the single most reliable indicator of Trump support, even more than political party affiliation. In other words, more dead white people, more Trump votes. Typically, victorious politicians seek to curry favor by rewarding friends and punishing enemies. Trump — strikingly counterintuitively, and yes, even boldly—is doing the exact opposite. In a morbid way, this makes sense. If Death by Despair —opioid addiction, suicide, gun deaths, and alcohol poisoning—got Trump
to the dance, he can stay in the cha-cha line by feeding that despair. Based on the fine print of the repeal-and-replace health-care bill that Trump is trying to ram down the throat of a reluctant Congress this week, that’s exactly what he’s doing. Even with last-minute changes to make the bill more palatable, the Republican health-care alternative will harshly punish the rural white communities that overwhelmingly supported Trump while simultaneously rewarding younger, affluent voters who overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton. Trump is doing this mayhem by making private insurance more expensive for older whites, hacking their subsidies, and pushing them off the expanded publichealth-insurance ledge that’s proved to be the single-most-effective element of the Affordable Care Act by far. Feed the despair. By cannibalizing expanded Medicaid coverage to the tune of $880 billion, Trump and the Republicans can justify massive tax cuts for a group who needs them the least, the very wealthy and reasonably healthy. Depending on whose numbers you use, $275 billion in these tax cuts will benefit the top 5 percent of income earners. Two-thirds of the cuts will go to the top 20 percent, and 40 percent of the proceeds will line the pockets of the now famous One Percent. For their sacrifice, those who already have a lot will get to have more. On any normal planet, this would be sufficient to make even robber barons blush, and the proposal would have been DOA. Instead,
it remains on life support as House Speaker
Paul Ryan gives new meaning to the expression “a pig in a poke.” At some point, real people will die. Others will wish they had.
Again, this makes sense under a perverse Darwinian logic. America spends $3.1 trillion a year on health care — more than $9,000 a year per man, woman, and child. That’s screamingly more than any other nation on the planet; 70 percent of which goes to 10 percent of the population in hopes of prolonging their last six months of life. If our expenditures are high, life expectancies are decidedly not. By that metric, we’re lucky to hover in the middle of the pack among comparable nations. Rather than reform what is an impossibly complex system and focus more on health and less on sickness—as the Affordable Care Act sought — Trump and the Republicans have seized upon a much bolder solution: Cut costs by making health care accessible to those who need it least — the young, healthy, and rich. In Santa Barbara, push is coming to shove in ways both obvious and not so obvious. Since Obamacare was passed, roughly 1,000 people have signed up for drug-addiction treatment with the County of Santa Barbara. Of these, 30 percent have opioid addictions. Many of these can be regarded as the “ablebodied” individuals some Republicans insist shouldn’t qualify for re-imbursement. In a similar vein, Obamacare has enabled the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics to
screen 7,000 of its patients for opioid-addiction issues. Of those, it appears 1,000 need serious help. The clinics provide primary care to about 20,000 low-income, working people, many of whom are Spanish-speaking immigrants. Before Obamacare, 35 percent of the clinics’ customers were uninsured, meaning they paid what they could, typically $42 for a basic visit. Those visits cost $170 to provide. Under Obamacare, the number of self-paying visits has dropped to 22 percent. That’s helped give the clinics a degree of financial stability that long eluded them. Maybe you don’t use the clinics so don’t care. If they disappeared overnight, there’d be 50 more patients a day choking up the Cottage Emergency Room. Absolutely everyone would feel that. The clinics will also be hurt by Trump’s decision to cut all funding to the Community Development Block Grant program —which has funded low-income assistance services for 42 years. That’s because four of the five county government entities receiving block grants use a portion of their funds to keep those clinics afloat. It’s no secret the clinics serve large numbers of immigrants. Since Trump unleashed the hounds of mass deportation, the number of patients visiting the neighborhood clinics has dramatically dropped. Some sick people too afraid to get medical help will get better. But most just get sicker. Sooner or later, sick people end up in the Emergency Room. If you think that doesn’t affect you, think again. No one outruns Charles Darwin. Not even Mike Pence. — Nick Welsh

Health Insurance Thoughts
he U.S. government has made a mess of health care, distorted the process, and driven the whole U.S. economy into financial failure. First Medicare by the radical Democrat Lyndon Johnson and then the worst radical Democrat Barack Obama and Obamacare have virtually destroyed health coverage in the U.S. to promote the have-nots at the expense of the haves. This is a dictatorship of the American people for political reasons and does nothing to provide the best medical coverage. When the government gets involved, everything goes to hell. Why do we need the government to tell us what insurance to buy? We don’t. Most of us buy the insurance we need without the government involved, e.g., home insurance, car insurance, dental insurance, eye insurance, and travel insurance, you name it. Just why do we need to have government involved for health? Only for politics. We should not be forced to pay for someone else’s insurance. If they can’t afford their insurance, they should not buy it. Getting rid of Obamacare is the first step. Then we should eliminate tax credits to those who can’t afford insurance because they do not pay taxes. Private insurance without the government is what is best for all of us. The government cannot do anything right. —Justin M. Ruhge, Lompoc
he Affordable Care Act (ACA, a k a Obamacare) is the closest the United States has come to addressing health care. The Republicans have tried 61 times to repeal it. It is time to fix it once and for all. All the proposals to replace ACA would leave tens of millions without coverage and be too expensive for those who could least afford it. Since the Republicans and the Democrats are never going to agree, let’s take a different approach. Let’s
send a delegation of Democrats and Republicans that include members with medical and legal backgrounds to Canada and European countries that have singlepayer universal health-care systems that cover all citizens. Study what works and what does not work, and select the parts of the system that would be best for the United States. Propose that as a system that could be supported by both parties. Universal health care could reduce costs by as much as 50 percent, giving every citizen access to health care that every other industrial county in the world now already has. So can we. Take the insurance companies out of the healthcare system all together and have the government negotiate with the drug companies to reduce the cost of prescription drugs. Universal health care would be free to all, rich or poor, and paid for by reducing the military budget and increasing taxes on the wealthy to pay their fair share. This is not a political issue; it is a human-rights issue. The Republicans and Democrats need to work together on this one for the good of the American people. —Thomas I. Morse, S.B.

H. Peter Karoff 1937-2017
H. Peter Karoff, a renowned contributor to the world of philanthropy and a business leader in Boston, died at his home in Santa Barbara on March 9. He was 79. The cause of death was complications from pancreatic cancer. Beginning with his early work as a founding member of the Foundation for Urban Negro Development in Boston, Peter was a champion of civil rights and social justice. He discovered his true calling in strategic philanthropy when in 1988 he introduced a friend, who happened to be the CEO of a major corporation looking to initiate a corporate giving program, to another friend, the film-maker Henry Hampton, who was struggling to find funding for the second installment of his civil rights documentary Eyes on the Prize II. Inspired by the idea of matching wealth to need, in 1989 Peter founded The Philanthropic Initiative (TPI), a pioneering non-profit consulting firm dedicated to increasing the impact of philanthropy in society. Over the next 25 years under Peter’s guidance and direction, TPI became a leading influence in the world of philanthropy. Whether working with individual donors and families or large foundations and corporations, Peter employed empathy and wisdom to align donor goals and values with historically underserved communities and populations, and with projects that sought to advance the human condition through art and culture. The richness and depth of his commitment to progressive causes reflected his core belief in the ethical and moral purpose of philanthropy, which he realized throughout both his personal and professional life. The impact of Peter’s humanism, generosity, compassion, lyricism and mentoring were deeply felt by people from all walks of life, and will be missed by all who knew him. Peter frequently spoke and wrote on philanthropic and social issues. His book on philanthropy, The World We Want, was published in 2007, and he was the editor of the 2004 collection Just Money–A Critique of Contemporary American Philanthropy. For 25 years prior to founding TPI, Peter was prominent in the real estate and insurance industries in Boston. Peter’s love of poetry was legendary, and his need to poeticize was constant and inveterate. He practiced the art over many years, on his family (epically), friends and colleagues, in speeches around the country and abroad, in classrooms at Columbia where he earned an MFA in poetry at the age of 51, and at Tufts University, 18
Boston University and the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he taught both philanthropy and poetry. His last class was a poetry seminar he taught in fall 2016 through the Vista Program in Santa Barbara entitled “Poetry and Metaphor—Living a Life of . . .” Peter's poetry has been published and anthologized, and his first book of poems, Parable, will appear this spring. Over the years, Peter was on the board of more than 30 nonprofit organizations, including Roxbury Development Corporation, Business Executives for National Security, WGBH Educational Foundation, Boston University's Institute for Nonprofit Management and Leadership, the Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, and Blackside Productions. He was a Fellow of the MacDowell Colony and a 2006 Purpose Prize Fellow. Most recently, he was active in the GHR Foundation, Robina Foundation, and the Santa Barbara Foundation. Upon his move with his wife Martha to Santa Barbara in 2008, he embraced a West Coast philanthropic community and new cohorts of leaders to mentor, as he had done for decades on the East Coast. Hillel Peter Karoff was born in Brockton, MA, on May 16, 1937, to George and Sadie Karoff. He graduated from Brandeis University in 1959, earned an MFA from Columbia University in 1988, and received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Lesley University in 2002. It was at Brandeis that he met his wife and the love of his life, Martha Conant, who predeceased him in 2015. They married young in 1956 and had four children by the time he was 25. For Peter, family was everything, and gatherings over Christmas and Thanksgiving—often with 30 or more at the table—made for great joy and enduring memories. Peter was an avid sailor, whose passion for the water occasionally met with mishap, and he was affectionately referred to as Crash Karoff at the local boatyard. But his children never wavered in their confidence and they fearlessly sailed with him in the waters of Buzzard’s Bay and Martha’s Vineyard, where the family spent many happy summers. His love of place—West Newton and Chappaquiddick, Massachusetts, and Santa Barbara—leaves his family with many memories, and many poems. Peter will be deeply missed by his daughters Deborah Karoff of Santa Barbara, CA, Lorinda Karoff of Brooklyn, NY, Rebecca Karoff of Austin, TX, and son Thomas Karoff of Armonk, NY, and their devoted spouses, Anna DiStefano, Jeffrey Younger, Brad Wolbert, and Pamela Furtsch. He leaves behind seven beloved grandchildren ranging in age from 25 to 8: Jacob and Sophie Wolbert, Kaeli and Emma DiStefano-Karoff, and Devon, Sarah and Lauren Karoff. Peter also leaves behind his brother- and sisterin-law, Richard M. Karoff and Sandra Manzella, along with three nephews, David Karoff, Paul Karoff and John Karoff, and their wives and children, with whom he enjoyed wonderfully close relationships. Peter dearly loved his family, his home, his community, art, music, and

sailing. Most of all, he loved his life with his soul mate of 59 years, Martha. What I do what we all do is write the poem of life You see it isn’t a matter of time but compassion Call it community or hope or faith or call it love. That is the flow that is the poem. – “If I Had More Time,” from Parable Services are planned in Santa Barbara on May 12 at 2:00 p.m. at the University Club, and in Boston on June 11 at a location and time to be determined. Additional information may be found at http://www.wrhsb. com/obituaries/. Donations in memory of Peter may be made to the Karoff Fund for Leadership in Philanthropy, c/o The Boston Foundation. Contributions will be used to fund and disseminate research, writing, and other projects that inform, inspire, and support the next generation of philanthropic leaders.

David Gold (no middle name) was born in Centerville, Iowa, a small, mid-western, coal town with a surprisingly vibrant little Jewish community. He was raised in a kosher household by two Russian/Polish Jewish immigrants fleeing the pogroms sweeping Eastern Europe. His father ran a general store and his mother ran the house. David was a bit of a child prodigy with his mother convincing the 1st grade teacher that although he was only four years old he could read fluently and was ready for school. He entered school early and proceeded to skip two grades becoming the first person in his high school to receive a scholarship to Harvard. He didn’t go as his father thought it was too expensive and too far away but that is another story. A Bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Iowa had to suffice. David enlisted during WWII as a first lieutenant in the newly formed US Air Corps where he commanded a small communications base in what was then known as Burma and flew 53 missions over “the hump” (the Himalayas) into China supporting Chiang Kai-Shek. At one point with his base surrounded by Japanese soldiers and fearing death he decided if he made it home alive he would “try to change this crazy world” and what else does someone do when they want to change the world but become a Sociology professor. Students at the University of Iowa, the University of California Berkeley and finally the University of California Santa Barbara all were subjected to what his three surviving sons fondly called the kitchen table lectures for almost 30 years. Statistics, Public Opinion, and the Media were his subjects of choice. David is survived by his three sons; Jeremy, James and Jeth; their wife’s Calla, Robin, and Susan; and three grandsons; Daniel, Alex, and Brennan. He lost his first wife (Judith) to an accident and is survived by his second wife JanClaire Elliott and her three sons; Ron, Markus and Gregory Hamm. David Gold died at the age of 92 living in his house, sitting in his chair, doing the cross words, yelling at Trump as Rachel Maddow unraveled his newest executive orders. No pain, no hospital, not a lot of regrets, doing what he wanted. We celebrate our father for teaching us about community and how to “try to save this crazy world”.

The Man Who Loved Horses
by J o a n a c o c e l l a
ith the death of the eminent veterinarian Robert Saunders on February 11, 2017, Santa Barbara lost a beloved citizen, and the county’s horses lost a good friend. Bob was born in San Diego in 1943, the second child of Catherine Hartzell Saunders and Colonel William Saunders, a West Point graduate, who was stationed there at the time. After the end of World War II, the family moved to Santa Barbara, and Bob was a Santa Barbara boy for the rest of his life. He attended Garfield Elementary School, Santa Barbara Junior High, and Santa Barbara High. Then he and a friend went on what they called a “tour of the world.” They traveled to New York, got a ride across the Atlantic on a tramp steamer, and hitchhiked through Europe.

During World War II she was then a teenager and participated in USO dances along with her friends. She came from a very patriotic family of Italian heritage who were very proud to be Americans. Darlene married Robert Postel in 1953 at Mount Carmel Church in Montecito and went on to give birth to three children. Claudia Wilberger (Gary), Robert Postel and Christine McAfee (William). She had three granddaughters, Robin Wilberger, Rachel McAfee and Nina McAfee. She was very proud of her family. Darlene is survived by her children, grandchildren and sister Lorraine Giorgi Morey. She leaves her cousins Dennis Feeley (Connie) and Annette Mendez. Her nephew Justin Bosio, (Cheryl) and Justine, Sheldon and Lindsay Bosio. The family would like to thank Senior Advocates Residential Care where she lived for one year. The love, care and excellent food that she raved about are very much appreciated. “As Time Goes By” (one of her favorite songs), we realize how important family is. To love and be loved, to have a sense of humor which Darlene certainly had and to be the best we can be will be our legacy. Darlene lived a long life and passed peacefully of natural causes. She will be greatly missed by family and friends. In lieu of flowers we ask that you donate to your favorite charity. Private service at Calvary Cemetery, March 23rd at 1:00 p.m.

Meet Santa BarBara’S
Young ResisteRs by Kelsey Brugger, richie deMaria, Keith haMM, tyler hayden, and nicK Welsh photos by Paul WellMan
oung, tough, and ready to rumble, a new crop of South Coast activists has quickly become a force to be reckoned with. They’re jumping into demonstrations and debates, digging in for a siege of resistance, and spreading an infectious enthusiasm for a better Santa Barbara and country that’s impossible to ignore. Some have lived a life of organizing for some time; others were freshly energized by the words and laws coming out of Washington. All recognize the groundwork laid by a long line of progressive activists before them, and each is ready to carry the torch forward.
IN THE TRENCHES: Chelsea Lancaster, flanked by other activists, speaks to a crowd of hundreds during the November 12 postelection protest.
here’s a place at the end of a Westside cul-desac that buzzes with the spirit of true grassroots activism. El Centro is a newly revived community center that had sat vacant for years until last January, when Santa Barbara benefactor and agitator Russell Trenholme leased the single-room space and turned it over to the organizers of CAUSE, Black Lives Matter, Ethnic Studies Now!, and other social-justice groups. They’ve since formed a tight-knit and growing collective that doesn’t look or feel like anything else in town. “We push the boundaries in terms of activism,” said Chelsea Lancaster, a student program advisor at Santa Barbara City College and a board of directors member at the Fund for Santa Barbara. Compared to other resistance coalitions, El Centro is younger, scrappier, and “a little more radical,” said Lancaster. “And we’re okay with that.” Right now, they’re fighting for more transparency from the Sheriff’s Office and its relationship with federal immigration officials, and supporting a set of proposed protections for city tenants.

Inside the airy room at 629 Coronel Place that’s adorned with murals and hand-painted signs, they plan marches, hold open-mic nights, form political action plans, and, perhaps most importantly, create an atmosphere of safety and healing for the marginalized among us.“The coalition represents our communities in a positive way and meets the needs of the people in the homes right next door,” said Gabriel Cardenas, pointing to nearby apartment complexes filled with working-class families, many of them Latino, and nodding at the lawn in front of El Centro, some of the only green space for blocks around. No single leader makes decisions at El Centro. “Someone has an idea, and we all get excited about it,” said Lancaster. Meetings are held in a circle, members call each other comrade, and those old enough to remember him look up to former S.B. city councilmember Babatunde Folayemi and his work with the young and the disaffected. Anyone can book the space. Someday, said Lancaster, El Centro wants to become financially self-sustaining, but in the meantime, “part of its commitment is no one is turned away for lack of funds.” Bianca Sunnadeniyage, a single mom enrolled in a nursing program, regularly brings her two young sons to El Centro. On a recent Tuesday, they played outside as she described how Ethan, 9, came home from school crying the day after the election. He doesn’t feel safe there anymore, said Bianca. El Centro has been a comfort.“To be coming here, to be around people like you and know you’re not alone has made n a huge difference,” she said.

rejuvalase medi spa Southern California's Most Advanced Medi Spa STUBBORN FAT HAS MET ITS MATCH!
the Bern’s Main Man by Keith hamm
ugust Hirschkorn grew up on both sides of the political aisle, so to speak, living in Isla Vista as a boy while his mom earned a PhD in religious studies from UC Santa Barbara and then moving to Livingston, Montana, when he was 10. He moved back to Santa Barbara for his senior year at Dos Pueblos High School, where, right after reading George Orwell’s 1984 in English class, a Bernie Sanders quote on the reauthorization of the Patriot Act caught his eye. “I worry that we are moving toward an Orwellian society,” Sanders said in 2015,“and this is something I will oppose as vigorously as I can.” Hirschkorn admired the senator for standing up for his beliefs, and when Sanders threw his hat in the presidential ring last year, he took a special interest in the race, especially as it meshed with his political science coursework at Santa Barbara City College. Today, Hirschkorn’s the president of SBCC’s chapter of Our Revolution, Sanders’s movement to reclaim democracy and advance progressive politics. Before the primary, Hirschkorn made more than 2,000 phone calls and knocked on more than 1,000 doors — both in Santa Barbara and Livingston — to drum up support, he said. “Even in a red state like Montana, Bernie’s message really caught fire.” (Hirschkorn’s mom, now an assistant teaching professor, is the faculty advisor for the Our Revolution chapter at Montana State University, in Livingston.)

Even after Clinton won the nomination, Hirschkorn didn’t want the momentum of Sanders’s narrative to fall off, so he stayed active with the SBCC for Bernie Club, which picked up speed on November 9. “We rarely see [Hillary] Clinton anymore,” he said. “But Bernie’s still out there, standing up against Trump and staying at the forefront of the conversation.” The college’s Our Revolution chapter officially launched on January 31 and has hosted well-attended documentary screenings, tabling on campus, and a letter-writing get-together opposing oil by rail along the South Coast. Come April, the chapter’s helping organize the Global Climate March at La Playa Stan dium, among other Earth Day events.
Izeah gaRCia out of necessity by Kelsey Brugger
s a teenager, Izeah Garcia would leave his Republican community of Fullerton and campaign door-to-door in Long Beach, where now-Congressmember Alan Lowenthal, a Democrat, was running for office. He knew the Democrats had no chance in his home district, and a friend told him he might even get to meet Joe Biden. Politics, after all, were in Garcia’s blood. His uncle had been a union organizer in Mexico. He loved it. “That was the thing that ultimately got me really enthralled and engaged in the electoral process,” he said. Though he said he never really viewed the work as activism —“just the work that had to be done”—he came to appreciate one key value he learned as an intern: Voting is the bare minimum; activism is turning your one vote into hundreds. Garcia, 21 years old and a UCSB history of public policy major, now finds himself in a community that shares his political values. When he started at UCSB as a first-generation college student nearly four years ago, he volunteered for State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson by calling Spanish-speaking voters. Two years later, he phone-banked for Measure P, the proposed ban on enhanced oil drilling in Santa Barbara County. Now Garcia is the president of the Campus Democrats.
Given the presidency of Donald Trump, Garcia again finds himself with more — much more — work to do. He recently organized a lobby trip for six students to Washington, D.C., to advocate for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and federal financial aid. He is planning another trip to D.C. for 30 students before he graduates in June. Garcia remains close with his family in Fullerton, sending extra money to his mother when he can. “Whenever we go on lobby trips to D.C.,” he said,“my mom tells me to be careful.” When she thinks of politics, she remembers they were dangerous in Mexico, Garcia explained. But she certainly encourages him to keep going.“She told me people are here for a reason,” he said.“She said,‘You like to do this thing, so you have to do it well.’ ” n
sage DesIree gaspaR growing up Fast by richie deMaria
efore the election, Sage Desiree Gaspar was your typical teenager. “I liked going to concerts and the beach,” she said. “Now, my whole life is organizing.” The Santa Barbara High School senior—who led the campus-wide walkout to the courthouse on November 9 and a sit-in on State and Anapamu streets on Inauguration Day — speaks with a mix of wisdom, strength, and some weariness.“But I’m super, super honored to be a leader,” she said. Beyond acting as a facilitator of her school’s Ethnic Studies Now! group, Gaspar is president of the Gender & Sexuality Alliance, a volunteer at Bici Centro, and, in the summers, enrolled in the CDF (Children’s Defense Fund) Freedom Schools program in Los Angeles. Gaspar is driven by a deep sense of purpose, one initially instilled by the communally active grandparents who raised her and took her along to labor union rallies. It was only recently that she realized how close to home the reality of Trump would hit. “I really didn’t focus on immigration issues growing up,” she said.“I was born here, my grandfather became a citizen many years ago, and my grandmother became a permanent resident when she got married,” she said. Gaspar’s birth mother, however, had been deported. And now she’s seeing community members arrested by ICE agents. “All of a sudden, it’s become super real,” she said. Through Ethnic Studies Now! — which advocates for mandatory multicultural curriculum in Santa Barbara schools — Gaspar works in tandem with Just Communities and CAN DO (Change Agent Network for Dismantling Oppression) to provide resources to undocumented students and help some apply for DACA protections. S.B. High School is an intersection of two very different Santa Barbaras, she said. “Our student body is really split in half just because of our location on the border of the Riviera and the lower Eastside. A lot of privileged, conservative students go to our school, and a lot of very low-income students do, too.” Gaspar said she can’t allow herself to sit on the sidelines as she watches friends endangered by stricter immigration policies. “There wasn’t a choice. We all have to use our privilege in a positive way,” she said. “If I’m not fighting for my family and my friends who run the risk of being n deported or arrested, I’m just wasting space.”

everend Allysa De Wolf doesn’t fit the traditional minister mold. She’s openly gay and married, and you’re just as likely to find her at an LGBT rally as up on the pulpit. That’s because De Wolf, lead minister of the First Congregational Church of Santa Barbara, doesn’t separate the secular from the sacred. “If your faith doesn’t apply to real life,” she asks, “then what’s the point?” Under De Wolf’s watch, the church on the corner of State and Padre streets—long a place of progressive thought — has become an even stronger refuge for people now under threat from Washington. It’s a warming center for the homeless on cold nights, serves the only free Christmas Eve dinner in town, provides space to a transgender advocacy group, partners with Muslim and refugee organizations, and is studying the possibility of becoming a sanctuary site for the undocumented.“Churches can no longer sit on the fence,” said De Wolf.“It’s time to let it all hang out.” De Wolf grew up in conservative Orange County, attending an orthodox Pentecostal church. She remembers always being different. While her peers were reading about lions, witches, and wardrobes, she was poring over the writings of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. She believed hopeful aphorisms. When someone said, ‘You can do anything; you can change the world,’ I actually believed that,” she recalled. At New York University, De Wolf, 29, studied nonviolent resistance and protest movements. She served as a hospice chaplain for veterans and was working
Faith in humanity by tyler hayden
as an associate minister in Newtown, Connecticut, during the Sandy Hook massacre. Three years ago, she was chosen to lead First Congregational. “I’ve always held this deep-seated idea that when a church works well, it’s on the front lines of social justice movements,” said De Wolf. Her personal methodology for justice is breaking bread with others. “If you get people who have nothing in common around a meal,” she said, putting “nothing” in air quotes,“you will create friendships and relationships, and suddenly you understand other people’s problems. Suddenly, you care.” The pain and fear she sees every day can be overwhelming. “But” she said, “I believe deep down we’re good people, and if we can acknowledge the good in one other, we can truly make change. More than ever, n we need each other.”

hen it comes to Santa Barbara’s young generation of activists, Zack King is among the old guard. About 15 years ago, as a student at La Colina Junior High, King organized protests against Operation Enduring Freedom. But those antiwar sentiments arose after what he describes as a 180-degree “change of heart.”When the Twin Towers fell, King’s knee-jerk response was to hurry up and get old enough to enlist in the army to help avenge the 2,996 deaths of September 11. But as he got turned on to politically charged punk rock — and paid attention in a social studies class that covered Islam and Middle Eastern history and culture — the military conflict took human form, “and when the bombs were falling on Afghanistan, I couldn’t help but think of the innocent people below,” he remembers. Since then, he’s expanded the scope of his activism, rallying for cost-of-living raises for teachers, for example, and joining the “Right to Write” campaign. In 2013, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office limited inmate mail correspondence to postcards, citing recent contraband smuggling via envelopes. King and his crew met with families, read inmate letters at public meetings, and got the ACLU onboard. The Sheriff’s
Office reversed its position after a federal judge ruled Ventura County’s postcard-only policy was unconstitutional.“It was a swift, successful campaign,” remembers King, now 27, and a UCSB sociology grad student studying the impact of climate change on society. For the past seven years, his main project has been the Bonfire Collective, a twice-a-month bookstore or coffee-shop pop-up “to provide books, art, resources, and social space to support progressive leftist activism,” he explained. Their last event, held at El Centro, featured a workshop on the rights of the homeless, led by older-guard activists who had been part of the 1980s campaign against Santa Barbara laws discouraging loitering and sleeping in public spaces. In general, King said, “there’s been a huge surge in activism since November 8, and we’ve been trying to channel all these new people into long-term organizing projects to confront Trump’s policies.” The collective’s next pop-up is March 26. For details, go to n bonfirecafe.org.
active listener by tyler hayden
imone Baker leads marches down State Street and shouts through bullhorns in De la Guerra Plaza. She just delivered her first sermon at Trinity Episcopal Church. But before Baker is an activist, she is a listener. As a caseworker, she listens to her clients. As a UCSB graduate now married and living on the Eastside, she listens to her neighbors. And as a leader of Black Lives Matter Santa Barbara, she opens her ears to our city’s “tiny but mighty” community of color. “Listening isn’t just hearing,” Baker said. “It’s a promise to act on the concerns people voice to you.” In person, Baker, 27, is easy to laugh but full of purpose. She grew up in Oakland, where the women in her family taught her early about the power of protest. She remembers, as an elementary school student, participating in a walkout demonstration alongside her mom and educators over salaries and campus conditions. When her teacher began holding class in her own home, the young Baker realized, “If you want to make real change, you have to put yourself on the line.” Through Facebook messaging and word of mouth, Baker and others started Santa Barbara’s Black Lives Matter chapter two years ago as they and the rest of America watched video after video of police brutality inflicted on black citizens. They learned from Los Angeles chapter leaders how to home in on local issues and started gathering concrete data, notably a governmentfunded 2015 report by the Burns Institute detailing stark racial disparities in Santa Barbara’s justice system. They’re also laser focused on our law enforcement agencies’ use-offorce policies, contending that Santa Barbara police and Sheriff’s Office deputies have not been trained in de-escalation techniques when confronting armed suspects. As a result, these encounters too often end in violence.“All life is beautiful,” said Baker,“so we will push and prod and do whatever we can to make sure this training happens.” The group is also nurturing up-and-coming black leaders to create more safe spaces for kids, women, and families, and actively partnering with other community organizations on the common goal of social equity — all efforts, Baker was quick to point out, that were taking place behind the scenes well before the election. But now, she admitted, the heat has been turned up, and that means taking public stands.“Because there are not many black folks in Santa Barbara, it’s even more important to make myself a little uncomfortable to make sure someone is saying what we need to say,” she stated.“We cannot rely on other people to give our message for us.” n

want to waste my youthful energy doing community organizing,” Frank Rodriguez likes to joke. After that, he wants to settle down to the academic life of a policy wonk. Given the meteoric impact of Donald Trump’s presidency, however, Rodriguez — who just turned 30 — might have a long wait. In the past few months, Rodriguez, a Santa Barbara native on the rebound from graduate school in Texas, has managed to be everywhere all of the time. As the Santa Barbara Progressive Coalition dragged itself out of the mothballs, Rodriguez jumped feet first into a leadership role. Just this Tuesday, he spearheaded the charge for tenant protections in front of the Santa Barbara City Council. Most profoundly upsetting has been the intense fear of deportation. Rumors of raids abound. Exaggeration, fueled by Facebook, is rampant. “This morning it was ‘Fourteen people picked up at Winchell’s!’” Rodriguez recounted. “It wasn’t true.” Rodriguez, who began work for the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) less than a year ago, has joined a community response program to separate smoke from fire. He is also part of an effort to determine just how much cooperation is taking place between the county jail and immigration authorities to facilitate deportations. For Rodriguez, who grew up on the Eastside, none of this is new. He remembers being in 4th grade in 1994 when the now infamous “They’re coming!” ad campaign was launched to pass Proposition 187, the equally infamous anti-immigrant ballot initiative.“I played soccer all the time, and I remember how empty the soccer fields were after that,” he said. Both Rodriguez’s parents were Mexican immigrants. His mother — with whom he now lives — cleans houses. His father — now living in Mexico — worked as a bartender at La Cumbre Country Club. Rodriguez sometimes worked there, too. At La Cumbre, Rodriguez experienced the very mixed message that Santa Barbara’s Anglo society sends the children of immigrants. He hasn’t forgotten being called, on occasion, “stupid Mexican.” Neither has he forgotten the generosity of country club patrons whose financial help enabled him to attend Bishop Diego. From there, he jumped to UCLA, where he immersed himself in the theory and practice of progressive — with a capital “P”— political organizing. In person, Rodriguez betrays no hint of the doctrinaire. Both goodlooking and goofy, he’s friendly and uncommonly up-beat. Once an avid skater and runner, Rodriguez now pedals an old 10-speed around town. But even sitting still, he moves. It’s all that youthful energy, and n none of it is going to waste.

t was the Women’s March that jump-started Jorie Mitchell’s fledgling career in environmental activism. She and her friends, all nature lovers, chanted down State Street in a protest that echoed across the globe. They were inspired by the experience and wanted to do more, “especially since the science community is taking such a blow under the new administration,” said Mitchell. She’s now organized the Santa Barbara March for Science, a sister march to the pro-science demonstration in Washington, D.C., on Earth Day. The goal of the April 22 protest, said Mitchell, is to drum up attention and support for Senate Bill 51, introduced by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson to direct California agencies to protect scientific information from censorship or destruction orders that come from Washington. It would also shield government whistleblowers and scientists who speak out against federal policy. Like most mass movements these days, the event gained steam as soon as Mitchell — a City College biology major and volunteer extraordinaire with wildlife groups — created a Facebook page for it. Around 4,000 people want to attend, and that number is climbing fast.“I’m getting so many messages from people wanting to help,” she exclaimed. A number of organizations — including the Community Environmental Council, the Museum of Natural History, and Indivisible Santa Barbara — have been eager to lend a hand. The march is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. with speakers in De la Guerra Plaza before it heads up State Street at noon and ends among the Earth Day festivities in Alameda Park. Attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, or carpool to town. Mitchell, 22, grew up in Bellingham, Washington, in a commercial fishing family. She was always outdoorsy but didn’t catch the science bug until her first class at SBCC, where she’s the Biology Club president and the Sustainability Committee’s water consumption officer. “Before the election, I was very opinionated,” she said. “But I never took action.” Mitchell, like many others, is alarmed by the views of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, who stated this month, contrary to scientific consensus, that he doesn’t believe carbon dioxide is “a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.” Mitchell shook her head. “The things that man says …” But Mitchell doesn’t dwell. She’s cheerful, determined, and infectiously energized. And she’s hopeful next month’s marchers continue the momentum. So what’s next? “Maybe a march all the way to Washington,” she smiled. n

Feasting at The Guilded Table A
Eight Artisans Now Selling Photos, Clothes, Jewelry, and More at The Waterline in the Funk Zone by Anjalie Tandon
BED|STÜ: Started by a husband-
BLANKITA: For every Ace Rivington guy, there’s a girl for whom Jennie Stierwalt’s neighboring space is the perfect match. Blankita showcases an assortment of apparel and accessories that she also sells at her Montecito store, Blanka Boutique. “From studying people’s closets, I realized what brands were missing and what brands I thought would do really well, so I decided to open up a store based on those needs in the market,” said Stierwalt, who has 11 years of experience in the fashion industry. “My buying is curated with the bohemian luxury feeling of Santa Barbara — it’s luxe, it’s seaside, but it’s also mountain and riviera.” She’ll also start selling her own line of clothing in April. blankaboutique.com
ACE RIVINGTON: Hidden in the back right corner is the secret world of Ace Rivington, the aviation-laced character and brand that Beau Lawrence created as a fusion of entertainment and fashion. “I created a character who grew up on a fishing camp in Alaska and is a modern-day private jet pilot,” he said.“That’s Ace Rivington. He’s a machismo kind of fellow.” So Ace’s story is told by the apparel, which Lawrence designs based on 18 years of experience, and ranges from Italian denim to the popular crewneck sweatshirt made out a super soft homespun terry that inspired the business. acerivington.com
and-wife team in 1995 out of a small warehouse in L.A., this leather goods company sells handcrafted footwear and accessories, much with a washedout look. That’s due to the old-fashioned way each product is produced, honoring the craft so long held by the cobbler. “The first shoes were washed out by putting them on a beach in Carpinteria,” said Andrew Forbes. Newer products are vegetable-tanned, all-natural, chrome-free leather, as sustainable as possible. “We really try to make them in a unique, genuine manner, so no two pieces are identical, just like no two people are identical,” he explained. bedstu.com
a lifestyle brand for people that like to adventure and keep life simple,” said Karley Mase of his clothing and accessory boutique. “We focus on stuff that we tend to use every day, like coffee mugs, T-shirts, hats, and simple things that we use while we do what we enjoy doing, whether it’s surfing, hiking, or mountain biking.” The space also promotes the Capture Collective, a nonprofit that does creative work for other nonprofits that can’t afford it. “Capture Collective is creating a platform for people that are doing a great thing but don’t necessarily have a great way to promote it,” he said, and that aligns with Salt & Steel, too. “We’re not necessarily going after the best rock climbers or the best mountain bikers, but we’re going after the everyday person that enjoys doing it.” saltandsteel.com
an extensive collection of sea glass. “I realized this is so beautiful; I have to do something with it,” said Kramer, who taught herself wire wrapping, soldering, and gem-stone placement. Her space glimmers a shade of blue almost identical to the ocean, thanks to her recurring use of apatite, her favorite gem. “I put a lot of my love and energy into it, and so I feel it goes on to each person who buys and gives it,” said Kramer. “It’s sort of like a traveling gift.” julesbytheseasb.com
While on a trip to South America, sisters Ashley and Erin Hayes discovered a Peruvian blanket woven with alpaca yarn that led to Asher Market. “It’s perfect for Santa Barbara all year round because it’s lightweight,” said Ashley, who explained that alpaca wool is five times warmer than sheep’s wool but much lighter. They expanded into throws, scarves, and other Californiadesigned, Peru-made merchandise, all comfortable yet durable. “They’re machine washable so you can take them to the beach after you surf, and then take them home and wash them,” said Ashley of the throws. ashermarket.com CROWE STUDIOS:
MEADOW ROSE PHOTO ART: Using
lumber rather than leather, Meadow Rose and her partner, Andy Lancaster, print digital photography on wood. “Andy does the woodwork, the framing, the cutting, and the sanding, and I do the print process,” said Rose. Her sunny, muted images of the Santa Barbara coast are enhanced by the patterns and textures of the wood. “It’s California lifestyle stuff,” she said. “The beach, a small town, VW bugs, surf shots, sunsets — all that is beautiful about California, I try and capture it.” meadowrosephotoart.com JULES BY THE SEA S.B.: Jules Kramer’s jewelry busi-
ness started five years ago when, seeking a bit of mental clarity, she took beach walks and wound up accumulating
The latest addition, expected to move in by the end of March, is Crowe Studios, which incorporates jewelry by Jen Crowe and panoramic landscape photography by her husband, James Crowe. “Our collections are all based around places we’ve visited together,” she said. “He takes the pictures of the places, and I create little wearable pieces of art that are inspired by the places we’ve been.” Crowe’s bold, sculptural jewelry is largely influenced by natural rock formations, and James portrays large-scale landscapes of vast expanses devoid of human disturbance. But more than just portraying nature, the Crowes give back to their inspiration, planting a tree for every item sold. jencrowestudio.com paul wellman
SALT & STEEL COLLECTIVE: “It’s
nyone who’s taken apart one of those Russian nesting dolls can easily understand The Guilded Table. The outer shell is Santa Barbara, inside which is the Funk Zone neighborhood, and inside that is The Waterline development on Santa Barbara Street. Open it up further to find The Guilded Table, inside which are eight different craftspeople. “It came initially from a desire to recognize that the Funk Zone has … artist roots, and that’s starting to disappear,” explains Kassie Goodman, who developed the concept. “So we wanted to give a nod to what this community has originally been about.” Adjacent to the shared common space, each artisan has an individual studio where they design and sell inventory, throw events, and, starting this month, hold their own workshops that are open to the community. “Brick-and-mortar retail is kind of dying,” said Goodman, “so we created a concept that is more interactive, more experiential.” Here’s a look at each artisan involved.
Opening every day at noon, The Guilded Table is located inside The Waterline (120 Santa Barbara St., guildedtable.com).

TTYL, CoLLege Kid of Mine
ight now, high school seniors throughout the country are receiving admission decisions from colleges. Over the next few months, their parents will begin grappling with the chesttightening realization that their children — the very lives they created, cultivated, and cherished for nearly two decades — will no longer be within hugging distance. Or even “WHO GOT MUD ON THE FRICKING SOFA?!”–hollering distance. Allow me to relieve your anxieties, my fellow moms and dads. As someone who was in your shoes a year ago, I can attest that your home will feel different without your kid in it, and your relationship will undoubtedly … shift. But with any luck, you can maintain a bond like the delightful one my oldest son and I still manage to share from seven states apart. Sure, I don’t get to hear his voice much because it’s “awkward” for him to chat freely, out loud in front of his roommate, with the woman who withstood chilling glares from countless strangers when he used to shriek in restaurants as a toddler. But hey, I totes get it! I’m chill! And he and I, we just understand each other like that. The great thing is you can develop an amazing new repartee via text! Whether you’re sending “Happy Tuesday! Use a condom!” messages or links to news stories you know your child will love, you’ll treasure the sweet nuances of the intergenerational digi-dialogue. Why, just today, I texted my son that his father, brother, and I will be coming to his school’s Family Weekend in New Orleans in the fall. Won’t that be fantastic? All of us together again on campus! “oh boy” he texted. Just like that. With no punctuation or emoji or anything. Clearly, he meant it literally, email: firstname.lastname@example.org because why would he type it if he didn’t mean it? He’s way too busy to type things he doesn’t mean. I know that he’s busy because sometimes he doesn’t text me back for a whole day. Or more. When I asked him about that, he (eventually) replied: I don’t mind the occasional text, I just may not respond :) I have a bad habit of disregarding them. It’s like “oh another trump article” or something that I’ll tell myself I’ll read later … but then don’t remember. Haha! See? We go back and forth like this, having soul-bearing conversations, our fingers flying, the time just slipping away. Does a mother’s heart good. Sometimes, though, he’s so excited to chat that he texts me when he’s supposed to be listening to a lecture! It’s bad, but you can’t fault a boy for missing his mom. Even when said mom is staving off a much-needed house painting in order to pay the tuition so he can attend said lectures. So … how often does he text during class? Depends on the class. If it’s Political Thought in the West, I would rather receive a text saying the world is ending than listen to more of that guy’s babbling. Short answer: fairly often. Sometimes we’ll all FaceTime together. We gather with his 11-yearold brother on the sofa to grin at the iPhone, comment on his dorm décor, and share stories … like his recent detailed account of the pornographic acts depicted on Mardi Gras floats and the X-rated toys being tossed to gleeful bystanders. It was just like old times, my husband and I mouthing “NO!” and “STOP!” while his brother interrupted, “Wait, what’s THAT?!” Still generating fun family memories, even 1,671 miles apart. That’s how far away he is, according to Find My iPhone — which I do not use to track his whereabouts … unless I haven’t heard from him and I’m afraid he might be dead. The few times I’ve tracked him, he’s always in his dorm, which only tells me that he may be dead in his dorm and no one has noticed. Or that he left his phone in his dorm, was hit in the head with a flying sex toy, and is currently being dragged dead under a Mardi Gras float. But so far, neither scenario has been true, and I’m sure it won’t happen to your college-bound kids, either. Good luck!

GAuchosCoachBAseBAll spruces up for BiG West Andrew Checketts Tightens Reins After Uneasy Season Start
s long as his team is heading in the right SCRAPPY NEWCOMER: Colton direction and playBurns (38) has put some spark ing baseball the right in the Gauchos on the field and at bat, hitting .393 and stealing way, UCSB coach Andrew third base with a head-first Checketts has been known slide against Stony Brook. to relax seemingly peripheral matters like requiring that the Gauchos be clean-shaven. But one-third of the way through the regular season, with the Gauchos off to a disappointing 7-11 start, the boss is pulling tight on the reins. “We’re struggling to do all kinds of stuff,” Checketts said Sunday after UCSB’s 7-0 loss to the visiting Stony Brook Seawolves. “We’re struggling to show up on time, wear the right clothes, all of the discipline details … We’ve seen the product of that on the field: not making tough, competitive at-bats; not coming out of the bullpen with strike-one mentality.” After last year’s historic run to the College World Series, where the Gauchos finished as one of the top six teams in the nation, they came into this season ranked on every top25 poll. Now they are nowhere to be found.“Chomaha” was their slogan when they made it to Omaha, the final destination of college baseball’s championship contenders. As of now, call it “Nomaha.” There is still plenty of time for the Gauchos to clean up their act. A strong showing in Big West Conference games will be crucial. The Big West counts for something in college baseball. UCSB qualified for the NCAA playoffs by finishing third in the conference last year, and in the postseason, they eliminated such powers as Louisville and Miami. As if avenging Louisville’s downfall, the Kentucky Wildcats swept a three-game series from the visiting Gauchos

four bases and ends every game with dirt on his uniform. “I’m doing the best I can to get on for my teammates and get things rolling in the first inning,” he said. Starting the season as an outfielder, Burns has since moved to second base. Clay Fisher, UCSB’s outstanding shortstop, has been sidelined by an elbow problem, necessitating the move of veteran JJ Muno from second to short. Muno, who was UCSB’s top hitter (.379) in the 2016 postseason, has been struggling at the plate with a .179 average and 19 strikeouts. He had the announcer introduce him as “Jeremiah” over the weekend (his full name is Jeremiah Jeorge Muno), and it was speculated that he did so in an attempt to change his luck. But Muno disclosed that he was honoring his namesake uncle, Jeremiah Murphy, a Catholic priest who died March 1. “I’ve had slumps before, but this is probably at the top of the list,” said Muno, who has dropped to the ninth hole in the batting order. “I’m just trying to grind through it. The hardest part is not being able to do it for my team. I feel like I’m letting them down a little bit.” Billy Fredrick, an everyday player in the outfield after his pinch-hitting heroics of past years, is hitting .341, and slugging first baseman Austin Bush has hit for a .313 average with three home runs. Along with Burns, newcomer Armani Smith has earned a spot in the starting lineup. The freshman outfielder from De La Salle High in Concord is hitting .364. “The lineup is set, although Fisher being down changes things,” Checketts said. Not so settled is UCSB’s pitching rotation. The coach was not happy to see Stony Brook score 16 runs in the series, although starters Noah Davis (4-1) on Friday and Kyle Nelson (2-2) on Saturday pitched well enough to win. Checketts gave 67 freshman Ben Brecht his first collegiate start on Sunday, and he showed promise, getting ahead of hitters with his fastball, but he gave up some big blows, including a two-run homer by Stony Brook freshman Nick Grande. “We’re holding tryouts,” Checketts said of the search for starting pitchers beyond Davis and Nelson. “The pitching’s been like a box of chocolates. We’re trying to get the right n one out of the box.”
earlier this month. UCSB came home to face Stony Brook after dropping six of seven games on the road. In the opener of the series, the Gauchos erupted for seven runs in the first inning and went on to defeat the Seawolves from Long Island, 12-4. Another early outburst — five runs in the first — spurred the Gauchos to an 8-5 victory on Saturday. Then came Sunday’s stinker, when they were blanked on five hits and committed four errors on the field. “Two steps forward, one step back,” Checketts said. “It would have been nice to take three steps forward.” The longest home stand of the year will continue this weekend, when the Gauchos play three against New Mexico State (Fri.-Sun., Mar. 24-26), followed by a Tuesday game against Pepperdine. Then Long Beach State will come to town for the opening of Big West play March 31-April 2. “Hopefully we’ll have a good series against New Mexico State and start off hot against the conference,” said Colton Burns, UCSB’s leadoff hitter. Burns earned Junior College First Team AllAmerican honors last year at College of the Canyons. He enjoyed John watching UCSB, to which he had already committed, in the televised play3/25: High School Track and Field: 79th Annual Santa Barbara Easter offs.“They were a scrappy Kayla Sato, Matt Mills, Relays Against the backdrop of Leadbetter Beach and the Pacific Ocean, prep athletes will team,” he observed.

THE NEXT GREAT GRAPE? Sonja Magdevski is betting on single-vineyard grenache as the future of her Casa Dumetz brand.
she started making wine in 2004 and opened her popular tasting room in Los Alamos in 2011, Magdevski’s decision to focus her Casa Dumetz brand on grenache didn’t come until after first working with the grape in 2014. “I was freaked out and excited by the flavor profiles that were coming out from the barrels,” said Magdevski, who makes about 1,000 cases a year, 80 percent of which is grenache. “Everything that applies to pinot and syrah does not apply to grenache.

It is farmed way more minimalistically, so it’s super concentrated and so structured because the berries never blow up.” It sells itself. “I don’t even put it on the tasting list, and people buy it all day,” he said. “Everyone is looking for a new variety to bring to the party, and grenache is really crowdpleasing.

renache is considered to be the pinot noir of Rhône varietals. That’s due to its pretty aromatics, full of rose petals and bright red cherries; a relatively lighter frame, compared to brawny syrah and leathery mourvèdre; and the ability, depending on where it’s grown and how it’s vinified, to be made into a wide range of styles, from delicate, lithe, and transparent in color to ripe, structured, and inky. It’s rising in popularity across the country—and is the preferred grape for rosés most everywhere — and provides a truly blank canvas for emerging winemakers to establish their style. So grenache is a perfect pairing for the California Garagistes, a boutique winemaker community whose Southern Exposure festival comes to Solvang March 31-April 2. Along with more than 40 producers pouring all sorts of varieties and blends at the main tasting on Saturday, there’s a panel that morning featuring these three grenache producers discussing why they love this grape. Here’s a sneak preview. See californiagaragistes.com for tickets.

eader Matt let me know that Gimeal Café opened this week at 5892 Hollister Avenue, the former home of The Natural Café. I spoke with owner and chef Hsin Lee, formerly with Takenoya, Ahi Sushi, China Pavilion, and Mandarin Palace.“The food is Taiwanese-American,” says Lee.“We serve bento boxes. It’s quick food for students and businesses in the area. We offer an open area with Wi-Fi so people can study and hang out here. They won’t have to spend a lot of money, because the price is not too high.” The main menu includes combo plates ($9.95), with main dishes of onion chicken, teriyaki chicken, fried chicken steak, barbecued pork, broiled pork chop, and soy chicken leg. Options include mapo tofu, stir-fried vegetable, spiced egg (one), scrambled eggs with tomatoes, seaweed salad, and corn with ham. The over-rice/noodle menu (presets) includes porkdon ($7.95), sliced chicken over cold noodle ($9.50), spicy chicken ($8.95), and unadon ($13.95). A variety of skewers and appetizers are also available. Hours are 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Call 770-7474.

NEW HEAD CHEF AT BARBAREÑO: A native Californian, Chef Justin Snyder has returned to his roots by accepting the role of head chef at Barbareño, 205 West Canon Perdido Street. At the age of 28, Snyder has a wide breadth of experience, having worked for some of the world’s most acclaimed chefs, such as Michael Voltaggio, Hideaki Sato, and Bruno Chemel. Having honed his craft through work in places such as Hong Kong, Paris, and Hawai‘i, Snyder is inspired to combine flavors from various ethnic cuisines with the freshest ingredients that Santa Barbara has to offer, all interpreted though the lens of a Michelin-trained chef. Not afraid to push the limits, Snyder is able to seamlessly marry modern cooking techniques with age-old methods to create dishes that are at once familiar, but at the same time completely novel and delicious. At Barbareño, Snyder seeks to further the restaurant’s mission of exploring the regional flavors of the Santa Barbara area, delving further into the culinary history, traditions, and ingredients of California’s Central Coast. By using his extensive training, Snyder hopes to bring a new level of creativity and refinement to the restaurant’s menu. NEW FOOD TRUCK: This just in from reader

Using the garden as an outdoor classroom, students learn about Planting, Cultivating, Harvesting, Composting, and Nutrition. Students in our School Gardens Program grow vegetables, healthy bodies, and lasting friendships. Research shows that children who grow their own food tend to eat more fruits and vegetables, have a greater understanding of ecology, and receive higher test scores in science. Explore Ecology provides schools and youth with on-site gardening lessons, teacher trainings, and curriculum.

Inspiring children to engage with the natural world and experience the value of environmental stewardship “The best day of my life!” “My favorite field trip ever!” “I learned how good it feels to take care of the Earth.” These are the comments that we hear from delighted elementary aged students on Explore Ecology field trips. When children connect with nature and learn how to protect the environment they feel empowered, alive, and important. Explore Ecology has educated over a half million students at Art From Scrap, the Watershed Resource Center, and in classrooms and gardens throughout Santa Barbara County.

ungry, sea-breeze-loving souls of all ages find plenty to love about Padaro Beach Grill, the casual, walk-up joint on Santa Claus Lane where you eat your food on the grassy lawns alongside the railroad tracks as the waves crash just yards away. But if you have kids, the picnic grounds are a small slice of hometown heaven: The little ones play for hours in the sandbox, securely fenced in from the trains and cars as all adults on hand tend to supervise in the village-like vibe, with the occasional brave seagull as the only visible hazard. Parents grow so unusually relaxed — due in part to the decent range of beers on tap—that the food could suck and no one would care. But it doesn’t. Among other highlights, I recently enjoyed this burger, loaded with green chiles, red onions, cilantro, jack cheese, and chipotle mayo, layered in flavors and easy to eat on the super-soft bun. And it’s just the right size that you can finish your sweet potato fries without overloading the tummy — which is good, given that you might be required to dash to the 3765 santa Claus ln., sandbox to resolve kiddie scuffles at any time.

Talk like a
hen a package arrived at my office from Prospect Park Press containing a new paperback original called Talk Like a Californian by Helena Ventura, I smiled at the clean, sunny layout and laughed at the wit of the more outrageous of the usage examples. Then I tucked the book away with the idea that it might soon come in handy. Four days later, I stood in front of a classroom full of high school juniors and seniors at 2 p.m. on a Friday —the last class period of the week. What could I possibly do to capture the imaginations of this entire group with the freedom of the weekend so near at hand? First, we had a quick look at the classic Saturday Night Live sketch known as “The Californians,” and then we began to play the traditional schoolroom game of Dictionary. It’s the one where people have to guess which of the four contestants has given the real definition of a word, while the other contestants get points for creating false definitions that fool their classmates into thinking they are real. Playing Dictionary with a copy of good old Merriam-Webster is fun, but playing it with Talk Like a Californian is, wait for it, hella fun. Show me a 17-year-old who is tired of making up mock definitions for “tightsauce,” and I’ll show you a child
who is tired of Snapchat. Each round of the game brought new heights of zaniness, especially when it came to writing the usage examples. According to the book, “gandolf ” is surf-speak for “an older, wiser guy,” but my students kept wanting to make it a verb, as in “gandolf — the act of surfing with a midget on your shoulders.” Usage example? “Dude, let’s hit up Steve for a gandolf sesh.” You will

have to imagine what they came up with for “tightsauce” yourself; Talk Like a Californian defines it as “outstanding and/or attractive.” A week later, I heard from Prospect Park publisher Colleen Dunn Bates that she would be available to take a call in her capacity as spokesperson for the book’s author, “Helena Ventura.” I asked her if we might do the interview as a conference call so that Helena’s high school fans could listen in and ask questions. What followed was fascinating. The uproarious verbal free-for-all of the California Dictionary game morphed into a sophisticated discussion about etymologies, geographies, databases, and the logic of the research process. Colleen/ Helena’s approach to this seemingly fanci fanciful topic turned out to be quite scientific, and part of a literary history that stretched back to popular glossaries of “cowboy talk” published in the 19th century. Bates told the students that most of all, she enjoyed the human contact that the research afforded her, whether that was talking with her adult daughter about the slang of the film indus industry or exchanging emails with tech bros in order to explore the linguistic subculture of Silicon Valley. Even if you are not in front of a class on a Friday afternoon like I was, Talk Like a Californian could still help you to flip a bitch (to make a sudden U-turn) in the face of life’s eggy (dull, blah, boring) moments and turn them into golden time (superduper overtime that typically kicks in for union workers after 16 hours). —Charles Donelan
Broadway at the Granada and features songs by the acts he made famous including Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, and Michael Jackson. Cyndi Lauper penned the tunes for Theater League’s third offering, the six-time Tony Award– winning musical Kinky Boots (Feb. 20-21), which is based on a true story of a young man who inherits his father’s failing shoe factory, turning the business around by creating ladies footwear for drag queens. Next up is the “singular sensation” A Chorus Line (Mar. 20-21), which exposes and explores the lives of Broadway hopefuls trying to make a living on the stage. Lastly, Let It Be offers up a reimaging of the Beatles’ history, in which John Lennon wasn’t murdered on October 8, 1980, and the legendary band performs together on October 9, 1980. “I have seen all of these shows, and they have amazing production value, compelling stories, and incredible talent,” said York.

If you have the opportunity to travel to New Jersey Boys York City to take in a Broadway musical, good on you. If not, no worries, as the Theater League brings a handful of them to Santa Barbara every year. Although its 201617 season doesn’t wrap until the fall with Dirty Dancing (Oct. 9-10), Theater League has already announced its 2017-18 lineup, which includes Tony Award winners Jersey Boys, Kinky Boots, and A Chorus Line. “We use surveys and the best shows available on national tour to pick a season,” said Reida York, Theater League’s director of advertising and PR, regarding how the lineup is selected. Kicking off the new season is Jersey Boys (Nov. 27-28), which follows the career of the Four Seasons — focusing particularly on frontman Frankie Valli — and includes the group’s hits such as “Sherry” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” Another hit maker is the subject of Motown: The Musical (Jan. 9-10, 2018), which tracks record company founder Berry Gordy’s rise to music mogul

A New Home for MCaSB
The Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) closed escrow on 35 Anacapa Street in February. The organization intends to build a museum that would serve as its permanent home on the one-acre lot at the southwest corner of Anacapa and Mason streets. Positioned in the shadow of the La Entrada project, between lower State Street and the Funk Zone, the museum would occupy a prime location at the center of this rapidly evolving, waterfront-adjacent arts and entertainment district. MCASB Executive Director Miki Garcia described the acquisition as an example of the principle that “luck favors the prepared.” “In 2013, we turned a corner,” she said, referring to the decision to gain accreditation as a museum and change the organization’s name from Contemporary Arts Forum to Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara. “And at that time, we decided that expansion was our ultimate goal. We knew we needed a permanent home here, so that’s when we began positioning ourselves” to make an investment in property. “The land was owned by a family trust,” Garcia said, “and they wanted to see it go to an organization working for the public good.” After due diligence was done as to whether or not the land could be used for a museum, the group closed with the intention to build one there. While Garcia was quite open about how early they are in the fundraising process, saying, “We’re not even in a capital campaign yet,” she praised Tom Parker of the Hutton Foundation for his role in securing favorable terms on a loan. The Hutton Foundation helps Santa Barbara nonprofits achieve sustainability by subsidizing such properties as the Arts Building at State and Sola streets, where the Granada Theatre, S.B. Symphony, Opera S.B., and Ensemble Theatre all have their offices. Asked to put the move in a larger context, Garcia was eager to share her vision for the design process: “This is all part of a bigger conversation about accessibility and connecting with the community.” MCASB plans to initiate a design council this summer and is currently preparing for the March 26 launch of takepart | makeart, a mobile pavilion and artists residency that will travel to several parts of the city. — CD

Funny Festivities They’re the “irreverent uncle” of Lucidity, the jester in the Lucid court: Fishbon, the whimsical and wacky performingarts collective that serves in many ways as the creative backbone to Santa Barbara’s festival underground. From Solstice to Burning Man, the reveling band of creators has spread the joy of S.B. bohemia through installations and floats, providing visceral and interactive experiences to participants and passersby far and wide. For those not in the Fishbon know, it’s a nonprofit affiliation of actors, visual artists, dancers, sculptors, and more, who incubate imaginative works in their Pescadrome, a two-story art building managed by its community. With the collective founded in the year 2000, you can barely allude to other artcentric spaces like SBCAST or the galleries of the Funk Zone without mentioning the piscine performance party starters. Fishbon is intimately entwined with the Lucidity family, as it was through the inspirations of Fishbon members that some of the Lucidity concepts first began to gel. A Fishmas street party led to a Walkabout Woods Christmas tree forest at Burning Man, which in turn led to the idea of a forested, transformational music festival. “We’re part of the family, and we’re the eccentric uncle,” said boardmember Bryan Snyder.“We build and take over an environment and provide our own performances, which tend to be a bit silly and satirical.” While Lucid University offers festivalgoers the chance to think deeply, Fishbon gives them the chance to laugh deeply, too. Case in point: This year’s performance, titled Rainbow Brite and the Great Rehab Adventure, sees the ’80s cartoon character in a drug-addled afterglow.“She’s jaded; she’s burnt out; she’s turned into a totalitarian dictator,” Snyder said. Strawberry Shortcake appears as a diabetic mercenary, and there’s a whole army of rabid Care Bears. The weekend will also feature the second annual Lucid Olympics, a loving satire of Lucidity culture featuring unconditional hugging competitions, Zen garden relay races, and chakra opening contests. Other Fishbon inclusions will include a biometric campfire surrounded by heartbeat amplifiers and chairs that read the sitter’s heartbeats and project them through pulsing lights, plus ambient lighting from Jonathan Smith. To round things out, L.A.-based theater troupe Teatro Korazon will join the Fishbon stage antics by performing a piece called The Fore Play. Like Lucidity itself, the days ahead for Fishbon are wrapped in spontaneous mystery, but whatever creations pop up next, they’re sure to be a satirical delight. — RD

HARD OAK: Strand of Oaks’ Tim Showalter likes to live and love hard. “It’s how I love my wife; it’s how I love my family, my friends, my passions. I don’t do anything subtly,” he said.
Live WhiLe i’m ALive by Richie DeMaria SIC TRANSIT GLORIA: Chuck Berry has passed on, but if anything is left of our civilization by the end of this century, his music might be one of the few. His music now floats in space for eons on a golden record, waiting for extraterrestrial listenership. Hopefully, vinyl is making a resurgence in that corner of the galaxy, as it is in ours. After the previous year, which struck down many of the mightiest trees in the rock forest, that ecology has now lost some of its foundational roots; the year 2017 will no doubt see further reminders of the mortality of even the eternally young. But legacies live on, and even if Berry may no longer walk the earth, people will be rocking to his music so long as there are people to populate this place. Thanks for the good times, and for changing music forever. LIVE FREE, LOVE HARD: Of course, for the many of us not yet crossing that finish line, there’s a whole lot of living left to do. The sturdy indie rock of Strand of Oaks, who play with Heather McEntire (of Mount Moriah) and classic rocker Jason Anderson at Velvet Jones (423 State St.) on Tuesday, March 28, at 8:30 p.m., show a frontman standing like an oak after many years of weathering too much hard living. “I have a new phrase called ‘Pick Your Party,’ ” said Strand of Oaks’ Timothy Showalter, who has a notorious enjoyment for the perks of the rock ’n’ roll lifestyle. “The universe sets up nights when it’s time to party and live in the moment; the problem I’ve had in the past was the party was every night, and that’s when it gets kind of depressing.” He’s rid himself of the illusion that creativity needs constant conflict.“It’s that common artistic struggle I often face—unless there’s deep conflict or some kind of massive problem, the creativity can’t have integrity to it. But that’s not the case. There will still be those conflicts in my life, and I’m trying to feed off the joy a little bit more.” The title of his new album, Hard Love, is about loving and living intensely and passionately. “I don’t do anything subtly,” he said.“If you’re gonna miss, miss big. If you really go for something, you’re setting yourself up for the largest failure or the greatest of joys, and that’s what this record is.” For those who like to party with a purpose, Strand of Oaks have partnered with Arcade Fire’s charity, Plus 1, so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to support Planned Parenthood. ALL DAY, EVERY DAY: S.B. music producer Fuzjn is living each day to the fullest, and as far as musical legacies go, he’s already building quite the one. With his Project 365, he’s releasing a song a day, every day, for a full year on Spotify, iTunes, and other platforms. The largely new-age project offers easy-listening moods — some quite gorgeously produced, with other explorations in tropical house and even singer/songwriter-type pieces — in a multigenre effort to break molds and break records. Guinness World Records has its eye on the project; the producer said: “I’ll have more songs out than Eagles or Lil Wayne in one year.” In some respects, it’s an exploration in breaking down business models and modes of recording.“The album in today’s day and age is not a physical form,” he said.“It’s a project that’s an ever-evolving art piece, an open-ended album of open-source material. I want to demystify the stigma that it’s hard to create and put it out there,” said the prolific producer. “I’ve done it on a shoestring budget, working relentlessly and working smart.” CAMINO CIELO: In other musical reasons to savor the best of life, Spanish guitarist Chris Fossek is celebrating the release of his new album, Camino Cielo, at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore (1260 Channel Dr.) on Thursday, March 23, starting at 7 p.m. and featuring a specialty eponymous cocktail, plus wine and beer on tap. Sip, savor, and enjoy the experience of living. n

Five For Fighting
ast Sunday, fans gathered to close out the weekend with the musical offerings of platinum-selling recording artist Five for Fighting (a k a John Ondrasik). The evening began with a short set by folk/ pop singer Marie Miller, who charmed the audience with her wit and musical prowess. The multi-instrumentalist, who has performed for Pope John Ondrasik Francis, showcased her songwriting talent with original numbers “62” and “This Side of Paradise,” and also wowed with a spare version of Bob At the Lobero Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Theatre, Sun., Love.” Miller provided a Mar. 19. delightful lead-in for the night’s headliner. With a string quartet stage left, Ondrasik walked unassumingly to the grand piano he would command throughout the night, beginning his set with “World” from his 2006 record, Two Lights. Considering the current political climate, it was a fitting start, with lyrics asking, “What kind of world do you want?” and “Be careful what you wish for.” Next, Ondrasik trotted out the pleasing pop
hit “The Riddle” before addressing the audience. An adept storyteller — he is an accomplished public speaker, ruminating on topics such as creativity and business—Ondrasik created a relaxed, intimate experience as he explained the origins of songs and told stories from his life. Highlights of the evening included “Ocean” and “White Picket Fence,” both from Five for Fighting’s debut 1997 album Message for Albert, on which Ondrasik played acoustic guitar. Mega-hits “Superman” and “ Years” also made the set list for a concert that offered an exceptional presentation of piano pop music and delightful banter — a perfect bookend to the weekend. — Michelle Drown
TRANSITIONAL AND SUPPORTIVE HOUSING PROPOSED ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENTS Program 2.8 of the Santa Barbara County 2015-2023 Housing Element directs the County to amend its zoning ordinances to be consistent with state law regarding the permitting of transitional and supportive housing. Supportive housing is permanent rental housing linked to a range of support services that promote stable, independent living. Transitional housing is also rental housing linked to supportive services, but it is specifically designed to facilitate the movement of homeless individuals into permanent housing. Transitional and supportive housing require residents to be of low incomes and have one or more disabilities. State law (Government Code Section 65583) requires that local governments permit transitional and supportive housing as residential uses, subject only to those regulations that apply to other residences of the same type in the same zone. To effectuate Program 2.8 and comply with state law, the County proposes to amend the Montecito Land Use and Development Code, County Land Use and Development Code, and Coastal Zoning Ordinance. Staff expects to present the amendments to the Montecito and County Planning Commissions during public hearings this spring. Staff will present the amendments to the Board of Supervisors in summer 2017. Additional information is available on the following website: http://longrange.sbcountyplanning.org/programs/housing_program_2dot8/index.php

ymphony orchestra concerts don’t come any more substantial than this double bill of Johannes Brahms’s monumental Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 15 and the Symphony No. 10 in E Minor, Op. 93 by Dmitri Shostakovich. And if authenticity is your thing, consider that the St. Petersburg Symphony premiered Conducted by Nikolay the Shostakovich Alexeev. Presented by Symphony No. 10 CAMA. At the Granada back in 1953. In any Theatre, Tue., Mar. 14. event, the result was a truly splendid evening of music, as fulfilling as any of the great concerts by major international orchestras that CAMA has presented in recent memory, and that is saying a lot. The standard comparison of the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 to another great work in D minor, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, was fully borne out in this immaculate and lush rendition. The young Brahms slaved over the composition of this lengthy (just short of an hour) piece, and not only the hard work but also the extraordinary dynamics of his emotional life during this period are clearly audible. With Garrick Ohlsson at the keyboard, the conversation between the orchestra and the soloist plumbed the depths of the concerto’s massive structure while retaining crystal clarity. After receiving a standing ovation, Ohlsson returned to play a thoroughly charming encore by Frédéric Chopin, the Op. 64 & entertainment No. 2 Waltz in C-sharp Minor.

After intermission, things got wild. Depending on how much credence one gives to the more extravagant claims of certain music writers, in the 10th, Shostakovich could have been continuing to write brilliant symphonies that surpassed even his great inspiration, Gustav Mahler, for expressive orchestration. Or, he could have been doing that while celebrating the death of his longtime tormentor, Joseph Stalin, in a composition that contains an entire movement devoted to demonizing the recently deceased communist dictator. Either way, it’s an extravagant work of art, filled with chattering and then booming percussion, spooky horn calls, and darkly suggestive sonorities. The St. Petersburg played it with such authority that you would think it had been written for them, which, in fact, to some extent it was. The orchestra’s encore was another waltz, this time an amusing one drawn from an eccentric Shostakovich score known as the Hypothetically Murdered. Much credit must go to CAMA for making this once-in-a-lifetime experience of Russian music at its finest available without traveling to St. Petersburg. — Charles Donelan

n 1979, a group of Santa Barbara dancers pooled their creative resources to form the Choreographers’ Collaborative, a platform for the presentation of underfunded and underrepresented dance works. A performance model took flight, paving the way for an ever-growing assemblage of area creatives unified through a singular goal: expand an audience’s perspective on how cooperative art might be presented and digested.

Now in its 17th year and holding court at the New Vic, what was once an exclusive glimpse into the city’s vibrant ballroom dance scene has grown into a celebration of strength through diversity, encouraging a familial atmosphere by layering young and seasoned artists under an inclusive arc of entertainment. In Autumn Phillips’s “Rise Up,” the spectacle of circus adagio and shimmering costumes became instantly humanized through the earnest vocals of Dakota Lotus, a young singer who wove his way around the high-flying performers in a touching display of unadulterated optimism. Dancers Rebecca Li and Yin Lu dazzled in fluttering dresses and quick, syncopated hand gestures in Dragon Sun’s “Butterfly Love,” a gratifying balance of theatrical display and cultural reverence.

Bethany Sutherland’s “Tribal Instinct” was a tour de force of texture and technique, with eight powerhouse dancers displaying the galvanizing and unifying effects of movement in the absence of archetypical gender roles. A few blocks south, the 15th installment of Cybil Gilbertson’s thematic, multidisciplinary collective known as Nectar explored the topic of rebirth and transformation in a quietly intimate program where musicians and dancers rubbed shoulders with visual artists, poets, and actors, each one using their chosen medium to recount a personal journey through discovery and acceptance. In the dance film Park, Hannah Ruth Brothers presented an endearing series of contemporary, plein air phrases shot over the course of a single afternoon using little more than her iPhone. In “One Good Egg,” comedian Elaine Gale offered up a sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking recollection of her pregnancy goals. In “Songs to My Soul,” Cynthia Waring (accompanied by guitarist Brandon Battle) presented a delightfully crude antidote to the business of spirituality with stories told through the lens of experience and healing. As the evening came to an end, singer Zoe Guess (accompanied by the ukulele prowess of musician Ocho the Owl) reverberated the pressing relevancy of a community collective with a simple statement: “To be seen and heard is a luxury for so many people; thank you for taking the time to listen.” — Ninette Paloma independent.com

Roster Features 13 Films About Jewish Culture from Around the World
his coming weekend, Jewish culture and expression will be the stars at the New Vic as the second annual Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival (SBJFF) gets underway. From Thursday, March 23, through Monday, March 27, folks can steep themselves in Jewish culture by way of movies made in countries around the world, including Hungary, The Netherlands, Germany, Israel, and the United Kingdom. The program was culled from more than 100 submissions, which, according to SBJFF co-chair Mashey Bernstein, gave them “an abundance of riches” from which to choose. So difficult was it to whittle down the roster, in fact, the festival board decided to expand the number of offerings this year. “Last year we did 10 programs, and this year we are doing 13 because these are great films and we didn’t want to lose out on showing them,” said Bernstein. It may seem oxymoronic to say that a niche film festival covers wide-ranging subject matter, but it’s true nonetheless. For example, this year’s slate explores themes that range from “circumcision, the religious rights of women, and the diversity of Israeli life to issues of sexuality, questions of who is a Jew, and the role of memory,” according to Briana Sapp Tivey of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara. Of the process, Bernstein noted that only the films that received a unanimous vote from the selection committee made it into the festival.“We decided every movie on the slate had to be approved by everybody. If someone didn’t like it or there was strong objection to showing it, we would not show it,” he said. “One of the most controversial ones will be The Settlers. It’s about the people who settle on the West Bank and the hilltops; we went back and forth on that one quite a lot. It’s very politically a hot potato, so we wanted to be sure that we could position it correctly and that we would have the right sort of context for it. So we are bringing in the director, and also there will be a discussion afterward so people can [talk about] what they’ve just seen.” Another standout, according to Bernstein, is 1945, which tells the story of two Orthodox Jews whose

arrival in a Hungarian village forces the denizens to come to terms with the ways they profited from the deportation of their Jewish neighbors.“This Holocaust movie [is] almost like a Hitchcock and Polanski film combined. It’s shot in wonderful black-and-white,” said Bernstein. Also included in the festival lineup is Time to Say Goodbye (Germany), a comedy about circumcision; The Women’s Balcony (Israel), which follows Jerusalem women vying for a place in the synagogue; On the Map (Israel), which tells the true story of the Israeli National Basketball team winning the European Cup in 1977; and Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? (Israel/U.K.), a documentary about an ex-Israeli paratrooper who comes out as gay and joins the London Gay Men’s Chorus. What makes a film festival so enriching is the aspect of audience engagement; so for those who ask, “Why go to a festival when I can see this film at home on Netflix?” Bernstein’s response is: “We are going to give you an experience you can’t get at home. We are able to bring in directors [and] actors and have discussion groups. When we show Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?, we are having a gay men’s chorus sing, as well.” Say no more! — Michelle Drown

DON’T MISS THIS AWARD-WINNING SEASON!
Kedi Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, and Holly Hunter. Plaza de Oro T2 Trainspotting (117 mins., R) It’s been 20 years since they’ve seen each other, but Rent Boy (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Franco (Robert Carlyle) return in director Danny Boyle’s followup to his 1997 film Trainspotting about four lads living in Edinburgh, Scotland. Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Mar. 30)
Wilson (94 mins., R) Based on the satirical graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, this film stars Woody Harrelson as lonely, middle-aged Wilson who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and meets his daughter (Isabella Amara), who is now a teenager. Fiesta 5
The Zookeeper’s Wife (124 mins., PG-13)
Author Diane Ackerman’s nonfiction book comes to the big screen and stars Jessica Chastain as Antonina and Johan Heldenbergh as Jan, the real-life couple who helped save hundreds of Jews when Germany invaded Poland during WWII. Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Mar. 30)
NOW SHOWiNG O Beauty and the Beast (129 mins., PG)
It’s a tale as old as time that doesn’t age — Disney’s live-action adaptation of its animated classic dazzles, enchants, and charms just as it did more than 20 years ago. As Belle, Emma Watson perfectly encapsulates the complexities of a “funny girl” yearning for adventure outside of her provincial village where the hyper-masculine Gaston (Luke Evans) chases her every move. Her deliberate imprisonment in the Beast’s (Dan Stevens) castle to save her aging father (Kevin Kline) takes Belle on a whimsical adventure filled with singing dressers, storytelling teapots, and dancing feather dusters. The animated antiques play matchmaker between the beauty and the beast, knowing that only true love will allow them to see the sun once more. The baroque sets, soundtrack, and wardrobes garnered smiles, applause, and a couple of tears from the audience. The invasion scene is a bit violent, and there is some adult humor, but this is a delightful, magical film that hopefully inspires a new generation of Belles unafraid to do the right thing, seek adventure, and love beyond what meets the eye. (SM) Camino Real (2D and 3D)/ Fiesta 5 (2D and 3D)/Metro 4 (2D)
The Belko Experiment (88 mins., R) It’s a game of kill or be killed in this horror film that involves a social experiment on 80 American business people being held hostage inside an office building in Bogota, Colombia. Fairview/Fiesta 5
O Get Out (103 mins., R) Director Jordan Peele’s terrifying debut horror flick takes the genre to a new level, playing with themes outside of the traditional blood, guts, and shrieks of terror from unsuspecting victims. From the beginning, its protagonist, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), is on edge, almost as if he knows what he is getting into when his seemingly perfect white girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), invites him home to meet her parents. Subtle yet intentional derogatory remarks made toward Chris from her wealthy parents and their neighbors don’t surprise him; what does unsettle him are the odd mannerisms and dated language used by the three other black people he meets. Things really start to go wrong when Rose’s mother (Catherine Keener) hypnotizes Chris to get him to quit smoking, prompting him to surrender his conscious, free-thinking self to his traumatic past. The film poetically plays out the following events as if his fate was premeditated because of his physiological makeup. Get Out taps into our underlying fears, but what aspect of the movie will scare you the most depends on which lens you see it through. (SM) Fairview/Metro 4
Kedi (80 mins., NR) This documentary follows the lives of the seven cats who live on the streets of Istanbul, Turkey, with interviews of the people who care for and interact with them. Paseo Nuevo Kong: Skull Island (120 mins., PG-13) The King is back— back bigger, but not better, than ever. Kong: Skull Island hits many of the sweet spots of its previous incarnations, with the hairy lug satis-
fyingly picking off cocky grunts with assault rifles, wrestling monsters across landscapes that time forgot, and getting lovey with the leading lady (this time without the groping). But it misses the mark in one inexcusable way— way Kong never leaves his home island, which always offered the most allegorically interesting moments in the seven other King Kong films. And the screen feels a little too small to fit both a giant ape and a crowded group of marquee actors — Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, and Samuel L. Jackson. The effect is a dizzying mishmash of CGI and close-ups that leaves too little room to breathe. Kong should have just been left alone, like he’s always wanted. (TH)
BROADWAY IN SANTA BARBARA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE
NOV. 27-28, 2017
Arlington/Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo
O Logan (137 mins., R) Set in the year 2029, Logan finds superhero-turned-limo-driver Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) holed up in a remote Mexican hideout and caring for an ailing Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart). When a young mutant named Laura (Dafne Keen) seeks their help, the trio sets out on a dysfunctional road trip across America, with mutant-hunting heavies hot on their trail. From the film’s brutal, expletive-laden opening, director James Mangold makes explicit this is no country for old X-Men and no movie for young children. Drawing from westerns like Shane and Unforgiven, Logan is a surprisingly understated and mature film that smartly avoids the gratuitous exposition, tie-ins, one-liners, destruction porn, and other clichés that take up so much screen time in superhero movies with less guts and grit. Instead, we are treated to a tense, tender, exceptionally well-crafted character study and meditation on violence that goes for the jugular and tugs at the heartstrings with equal force.

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of maRch 23 ARIES
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Of course you want to get the best of everything. But that doesn’t mean you should disdain cheap thrills that are more interesting and gratifying than the expensive kind. And of course you enjoy taking risks. But there’s a big difference between gambling that’s spurred by superstitious hunches and gambling rooted in smart research. And of course you’re galvanized by competition. But why fritter away your competitive fire on efforts to impress people? A better use of that fire is to use it to hone your talents and integrity.
(June 21-July 22): You are on the verge of achieving a sly victory over the part of you that is unduly meek and passive. I believe that in the coming weeks you will rise up like a resourceful hero and at least half-conquer a chronic fear. A rumbling streak of warrior luck will flow through you, enabling you to kill off any temptation you might have to take the easy way out. Congratulations in advance, my fellow Cancerian! I have rarely seen our tribe have so much power to triumph over our unconscious attraction to the victim role.
librium where there has been imbalance. Too much NO becomes YES, for example. A superabundance of yin mutates into yang, or an overemphasis on control generates chaos. Flip-flops like these tend to be messy if we resist them, but interesting if we cooperate. I figure that’s your choice right now. Which will it be? The latter, I hope. P.S.: The reversals that you consciously co-create may not be perfect. But even if they are baffling, I bet they will also be amusing and magnificent.
(Apr. 20-May 20): If you own an untamable animal like a bull, the best way to manage it is to provide a fenced but spacious meadow where it can roam freely. So said famous Zen teacher Shunryu Suzuki, using a metaphor to address how we might deal with the unruly beasts in our own psyches. This is excellent advice for you right now, Taurus. I’d hate to see you try to quash or punish your inner wild thing. You need its boisterous power! It will be a fine ally if you can both keep it happy and make it work for you.
(July 23-Aug. 22): Leo journal entry, Thursday: Am too settled and stale and entrenched. Feeling urges to get cheeky and tousled. Friday: So what if I slept a little longer and arrived late? Who cares if the dishes are piling up in the sink? I hereby refuse law and order. Saturday: I’m fantasizing about doing dirty deeds. I’m thinking about breaking the taboos. Sunday: Found the strangest freshness in a place I didn’t expect to. Sometimes chaos is kind of cute and friendly. Monday: The nagging voice of the taskmaster in my head is gone. Ding-dong. Let freedom ring!
(May 21-June 20): If I were to provide a strict interpretation of the astrological omens, I’d advise you to PARTY HARDY AND ROWDY AND STRONG AND OFTEN! I’d suggest that you attend a raging bash or convivial festivity once every day. And if that were logistically impossible, I’d advise you to stage your own daily celebrations, hopefully stocked with the most vivacious and stimulating people you can find. But I recognize that this counsel may be too extreme for you to honor. So I will simply invite you to PARTY HARDY AND ROWDY AND STRONG at least twice a week for the next four weeks. It’s the medicine you need.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): William Boyd writes novels, which require him to do copious research about the real-world milieus he wants his fictional characters to inhabit. For example, to ensure the authenticity of his book Waiting for Sunrise, he found out what it was like to live in Vienna in 1913. He compares his process of searching for juicy facts to the feeding habits of a blue whale: engorging huge amounts of seawater to strain out the plankton that are good to eat. Ninety percent of the information he wades through is irrelevant, but the rest is tasty and nourishing. I suspect you’ll thrive on a similar approach in the coming weeks, Virgo. Be patient as you search for what’s useful.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When I was 24, I lived in rural North Carolina and had a job washing dishes in a city four miles away. I was too poor to own a bicycle, let alone a car. To get to work I had to trudge down backroads where hostile dogs and drunk men in pickup trucks roamed freely. Luckily, I discovered the art of psychic protection. At first I simply envisioned a golden force field surrounding me. Later I added visualizations of guardian animals to accompany me: two friendly lions and two sheltering wolves. Maybe it was just the placebo effect, but the experiment worked. My allies made me brave and kept me safe. You’re welcome to borrow them, Scorpio, or conjure up your own version of spirit protectors. You’re not in physical danger, but I suspect you need an extra layer of protection against other people’s bad moods, manipulative ploys, and unconscious agendas.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The empty space at the end of this sentence has intentionally been left blank. The serene hiatus you just glided through comes to you courtesy of Healing Silence, an ancient form of do-it-yourself therapy. Healing Silence is based on the underappreciated truth that now and then it’s restorative to just SHUT UP and abstain from activity for a while. (As you know, the world is crammed with so much noise and frenzy that it can be hard to hear yourself think — or even feel.) With Healing Silence, you bask in a sanctuary of sweet nothingness for as long as you need to. Please try it sometime soon. Wrap yourself in the luxurious void of Healing Silence.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I hope you won’t feel the need to say any of these things: (1) “I’m sorry I gave you everything I had without making sure you wanted it.” (2) “Will you please just stop asking me to be so real.” (3) “I long for the part of you that you’ll never give me.” Now here are things I hope you will say sometime soon: (1) “I thrived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.” (This declaration is lifted from novelist Joshua Graham.) (2) “I’m having fun, even though it’s not the same kind of fun everyone else is having.” (Borrowed from author C.S. Lewis.) (3) “I’m not searching for who I am. I’m searching for the person I aspire to be.” (Stolen from author Robert Brault.)
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I’m not suggesting you should listen to your heart with rapt attention every waking minute for the next four weeks. I don’t expect you to neglect the insights your mind has to offer. But I would love to see you boost your attunement to the intelligent organ at the center of your chest. You’re going to need its specific type of guidance more than ever in the coming months. And at this particular moment, it is beginning to overflow with wisdom that’s so rich and raw that it could unleash a series of spiritual orgasms.
(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Are you fantasizing more about what you don’t have and can’t do than what you do have and can do? If so, please raise the “do have” and “can do” up to at least 51 percent. (Eighty percent would be better.) Have you been harshly critiquing yourself more than you have been gently taking care of yourself? If so, get your self-care level up to at least 51 percent. (Eight-five percent is better.) Are you flirting with a backward type of courage that makes you nervous about what everyone thinks of you and expects from you? If so, I invite you to cultivate a different kind of courage at least 51 percent of the time: courage to do what’s right for you no matter what anyone thinks or expects. (Ninety percent is better.)
