Cov Cover STORY

alvin, the amaZing alpaCa On a scouting expedition to South America, hardy traveler Craig Harris encountered a rare breed of literate alpaca. “It’s an amazing world we live in,” he said of his discovery, crediting Alvin’s pack leader, Felipa, with the feat. Harris had interrupted the Peruvian’s usual day spent farming potatoes to arrange a ramble around the Ausangate environs. As Harris packed up to head home, Alvin asked him to “bring another issue so he can keep himself up to snuff on the goingson in Santa Barbara,” Harris said. Oxygen deprivation is suspected to be a factor in the exchange; Alvin’s town, Tinque, sits at 13,000 feet.

Crescencio Ramos Ramirez (pictured), 33, of Santa Barbara, drowned on 3/30 off the sandspit at Santa Barbara Harbor while reportedly trying to help a young girl struggling in the surf. Two city college students rescued the girl, and a surfer pulled Ramirez to the sand. Emergency personnel found the father of two unresponsive; he was pronounced dead at the scene.

teachers Protest for Pay raise


ore than 200 teachers filed into Santa Barbara Unified School District’s board of education meeting Tuesday evening to protest contract negotiations that have not gone their way. Bargaining began in January, with the Santa Barbara Teachers Association aiming for a 4 percent raise, according to union president Karen McBride. The district — wrangling a budgetary shortfall of $6 million over the next two fiscal years — countered with no salary increase for this year.“It’s almost like a slap in the face to get offered a zero percent

The high-speed chase that ended at Gaviota Tunnel on 3/28 had its roots in Thousand Oaks on 3/1. The four suspects were part of the “Rainbow Crew,” a name originally given to a group of women with multicolored hair who were known to steal merchandise up and down California and out of state. Retailers recognized the suspects when they returned to stores in T.O. on the 28th, after having allegedly burgled them on the 1st. The chase, which began in Camarillo, saw a Honda Civic traveling up to 120 mph up the 101 and ended with spike strips, blown tires, and a full stop just south of the Gaviota Tunnel an hour later at noon. The crew is believed to have stolen more than a million dollars’ worth of merchandise through the state.

I understand where they’re coming from, and I look forward to negotiating a productive outcome. I’m hopeful we’ll —Keith Hamm come to an agreement this week.”

State Street VacancieS Vent FeSt Movers and Shakers Ponder Which Way Downtown by Nick Welsh n January 4, Macy’s announced it was pulling the plug on 100 stores nationwide, downtown Santa Barbara included. For the city’s central business district, that decision constituted a shrill and urgent wake-up call. Late this Monday morning, about 30 movers and shakers crammed into a small meeting room at City Hall and collectively tried to answer the phone. What they said wasn’t nearly as important as the fact that they tried. Even more important is who was in the room trying to say it. Assembled together in one space were more downtown property owners than Bob Tuler has ever seen at one time, and Tuler— Tuler a head honcho with Radius — has been leasing commercial real estate in Santa Barbara for 40 years. When Tuler started out, J.C. Penney was the commercial mastodon of State Street. But like mastodons everywhere, J.C. Penney has come and gone, now Macy’s with it. Two weeks ago, Tuler surveyed the central business district in search of similar departures. What he found were 45 empty spaces. That

doesn’t count the vacancies in Paseo Nuevo. “If we had this during the recession of 2010, that would be expected,” said Tuler. “But to have this now, during one of the longest, most sustained recoveries ever? That’s surprising.” For many downtown business owners, the word “alarming” is more like it. Tuler said he hasn’t seen downtown so bleak since the recession of 1991 and BiG loss: Losing Macy’s was the very large straw that broke the 1992, before Paseo Nuevo camel’s back and triggered anxiety over State Street vacancies. was built.

A former Spearmint Rhino dancer filed an unfairlabor lawsuit against the strip club, charging the owners “do not pay their employees anything.” Los Angeles–based attorneys for the exotic dancer, who worked there for just one month last fall, claimed their client had to split her tips with management as “overhead” or “rent,” was not entitled to breaks, and did not receive overtime pay. In addition, attorneys alleged the club did not provide training, dance seminars, or choreography. “The dance skills utilized are commensurate with those exercised by ordinary people dancing at a typical nightclub or wedding,” attorneys argued. Multiple attempts to reach Spearmint Rhino’s general manager were unsuccessful by deadline.

city Caltrans is proposing to spend $1.8 million to install a giant underground “floating slab”— slab” coupled with a “geo-synthetic drain”— drain” to fix the chronic water seepage that’s afflicted the Castillo Street underpass since the day it was built in 1961. Caltrans last tried to fix the problem in 2015, spending $800,000 to install street pavers that were supposed to carry seeping water but which by any reckoning have made the issue worse. City traffic planners insist the dilemma is sufficiently serious that a major reboot of the Castillo Street

According to an engineering study commissioned by City Hall, some land on which the units were built abuts Sycamore Creek, and the water level will be a half an inch higher than permissible. Three of the eight units already occupied are close to the creek. Should the inspections be denied, the city will take legal action to have the tenants removed. City Hall will submit its findings to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which oversees development in such flood plains.

next 10 years for the state’s roads and bridges, as well as increase funding for transit and safety. Gasoline would face a 12-cent tax on November 1, autos a fee scaled by purchase price in 2018, and electric vehicles a $100 surcharge in 2020. These could add more than $8 million per year to the county’s road coffers, which have had to dip into the general fund the past three years to keep the streets smooth, pothole-free, and safe. “Something needs to be done to address these needs,” said Assemblymember Monique Limón, who is in favor of SB 1 in its current form. “That would be great news for our roads,” said Scott McGolpin, the county’s director of Public Works. “Is there any way to make it immediate?” A 500-kilowatt electricity storage facility — i.e., a big bunch of high-tech batteries — is proposed for a corner of the Ellwood Generating Station roughly across Hollister Avenue from Sandpiper Golf Club. The Ellwood station generates electricity when demand exceeds supply, and the battery storage proposed by NRG Energy of Carlsbad would create the ability to hold power produced during times of low demand or from solar or wind sources. The City of Goleta’s initial review has resulted in a mitigated negative declaration, with mitigations generally addressing the chemicals on-site and fire or emergency response; birds, trees, and nests; and cultural or tribal resources that might be uncovered. The public may comment on the report before 4/27. Pressured in federal court by two Southern California environmental groups, the U.S. Forest Service’s Los Padres National Forest has shelved its plan to cut a wildfire fuel break between Gaviota and Refugio. The agency aimed to considerably widen — up to 300 feet wide, terrain permitting — an existing six-mile stretch of dirt roadway along the mountain ridge. But the plan failed to protect rare plants and animals from the vegetation clearance, according to the lawsuit, filed late last year by California Chaparral Institute and Santa Barbara’s Los Padres ForestWatch. The groups dropped the lawsuit when Los Padres n officials reconsidered.

Let there Be Water W ith the reservoir at Lake Cachuma now half full thanks to winter rains, deliveries to the South Coast water agencies have started back up for the first time in two years. Water managers are hedging their bets, however, against the prospect of more dry years; they’re taking 40 percent of normal deliveries over the next six months and another 40 percent for the six months after that. Of the 97,000 acre-feet in the reservoir, about 22,000 are being set aside for human consumption. That’s slightly less than what’s taken out of the dam in a normal year. Of the rest, the biggest chunk will offset water lost to evaporation — about 25,000 acrefeet; about 9,000 acre-feet is being set aside for steelhead recovery efforts, and 12,000 to restore the dead pool, the minimal amount

needed to maintain the lake on ecological life support. But even amid the bounty of this year’s heavy rains, there are painful complications. For example, Santa Barbara County water agencies had about 30,000 acre-feet of state water stored in the Los Banos Reservoir, which flooded during this winter’s storms. As a result, two-thirds of that stored water was lost. In addition, federal officials ordered water released from Cachuma to restore steelhead habitat downstream. Because the same pipes that are used to release fish water are also used to import state water, no state water deliveries have been made to Cachuma since March 27. At 44 acre-feet a day, that adds up. That issue, however, should be rectified in the next several weeks. —Nick Welsh

Stanford Study Details Benefits of State Law Granting Licenses to Undocumented Immigrants


by Tyler Hayden

ranting driver’s licenses to California’s undocumented immigrants reduced hit-and-run accidents statewide by as much as 10 percent, according to a Stanford University study published Monday. The study, examining the initial impacts of Assembly Bill 60, which was enacted in January 2015, is the first meaningful assessment of the law allowing immigrants living in the country illegally to obtain licenses. Twelve states and the District of Columbia have adopted such laws. Several others, including New York and New Jersey, are considering similar initiatives. The passage of the California law — under which more than 800,000 licenses have since been issued—generated intense debate. Opponents argued that not only would it grant a privilege to lawbreakers, but it would also increase accident rates since undocumented immigrants might drive older, less safe cars and be unable to read road signs. Supporters maintained AB 60 would improve road safety by ensuring more drivers are properly trained, tested, and insured. And because the law prohibits local police from reporting AB 60 drivers to federal immigration officials, they contended, drivers would be less likely to flee an accident for fear of deportation. The Stanford study backs up the bill’s supporters. It concluded that an estimated 4,000 hit-and-run accidents have been prevented by AB 60: “Hit and run behavior results in serious injuries and fatalities because of delayed medical reporting, and therefore, the policy has been a benefit for public safety.” Moreover, the study continued, AB 60 has so far saved an estimated $3.5 million in outof-pocket repair costs for drivers who were not at fault, and it transferred $17 million in costs to at-fault drivers’ insurance. The study also found that AB 60 had no discernable effect on the overall number of traffic accidents and fatalities in the state. It relied on monthly data from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and California Highway Patrol to draw its conclusions.

Immigrants’-rights groups have hailed the report as proof the AB 60 program works. “This is a perfect example of how fully including immigrant families makes our whole community stronger and safer,” said Lucas Zucker with Santa Barbara’s CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance for a United Sustainable Economy). “Excluding undocumented Californians from driver’s licenses for many years meant that immigrant drivers faced the fear of car confiscation or deportation for a minor fender bender. Allowing immigrant drivers to be part of the DMV and insurance systems makes us all safer on the road.” California counties like Santa Barbara with comparatively high numbers of undocumented immigrants saw the largest drops in hit-and-run accidents. Among AB 60’s critics at the time of its passage was the Santa Barbara–based antiimmigration group Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS). Spokesperson Joe Guzzardi said CAPS stands by its initial position. “The study’s conclusion … noted that more illegal immigrants are working, and their incomes are up. Those jobs and higher earnings should have gone to American citizens or legal permanent residents.” CAPS was recently classified as a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center for its views on immigration and former employment of noted white nationalists. The organization disputes the label. Stanford social scientist Duncan Lawrence, a coauthor of the study conducted by the university’s Immigration Policy Lab, said in an interview Monday, “Our goal was to provide evidence so that policy makers can make better decisions.” He and his colleagues were surprised when they learned little to no empirical data exists around the effects of laws like AB 60, despite the strong opinions on both sides of the issue. Lawrence predicted the results will generate backlash from more conservative opponents of the law, but he stressed the lab was nonpartisan in its approach. “We do data analysis and let the data speak for themselves,” he said. n

Wagner and City Traffic Planner Peter Brown both referenced the car-shedding phenomenon occurring in cities across the country, where couples or small families looking to save forgo owning two vehicles in favor of one and rely on shared cars when needed. Brown said the Santa Barbara program will be evaluated after three to six months to determine if more or fewer cars are needed. The official rollout will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 18. Zipcar will lease each of the 10 parking spots from the city for $160 a month. Curbs will be painted and signs posted to designate the “home base” for each vehicle, which will be a mix of mostly four-door sedans like Ford Fiestas and Honda Civics, as well as a couple of larger SUVs, said Zipcar spokesperson Kate Hickman. Los Angeles area rates run around $9 for an hour and $75 for the day; Santa Barbara’s will be similar, said Hickman. Each Zipcar takes 15 personally owned vehicles off the road, the company claims, increases transit usage among members by 46 percent, and reduces their annual driving miles by 40 percent on average. —Tyler Hayden

MS-13 Gag Order Sought a

ttorneys defending one of the alleged MS-13 gang members indicted for several murders in Santa Maria this past July have petitioned for a gag order in response to purportedly prejudicial statements made by the Santa Maria Police Department, Santa Barbara Sherriff’s Office, and the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office against their client. If granted, this unusual request would restrict any lawyers, witnesses, law enforcement officers, and court officials involved from discussing the case or making public statements about it. Defendant Marcos Manuel Sanchez Torres (pictured) and 16 other alleged members of the Salvadorian gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) were arrested in March 2016 for first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, torture, and street terrorism in the City of Santa Maria. Torres’s gagorder motion, submitted March 20, refers to Police Chief Ralph Martin, who

repeatedly characterized the defendants negatively in public, remarking in a KCOY television interview how “it’d be like the Mafia in Chicago just moving into your city and all of a sudden taxing people and really committing horrendous acts.” It also cites a press release issued by District Attorney Joyce Dudley and statements made by Deputy District Attorney Ann Bramsen, which discussed the defendants’ connection to murders in the past four years and the subsequent indictments. Bramsen filed an opposition to the motion, arguing the gag-order request was overly broad and did not adequately demonstrate the effects of these statements on Torres’s case. She mentioned how even Michael Jackson, who was tried in the very same courthouse in Santa Maria, received a fair trial despite national news coverage and public government statements following his case. The MS-13 case is scheduled to be back in court on April 7. cou rtesy



arking has emerged as the Achilles’ heel of the city’s ambitious high-density housing experiment, with critics repeatedly complaining that residents of new apartments in and around the downtown corridor will bogart already limited on-street spaces. Santa Barbara officials are actively strategizing ways to better mesh alternative forms of transportation with the Average Unit-size Density program — which banks on apartment dwellers walking, biking, or busing instead of driving—and last month signed a contract with Zipcar to bring 10 of its rideshare vehicles to the city. The cars will be stationed at strategic points along busy routes — one each in City Garages 10 (Ortega and Anacapa) and 6 (Anapamu and Anacapa); two at the Amtrak Depot lot; one in Cottage Hospital’s parking garage; and five on the corners of Sola and De la Vina, Figueroa and Chapala, De la Guerra and De la Vina, Micheltorena and San Andres, and Milpas and Gutierrez. The fleet will join a handful of student-specific Zipcars already located at Santa Barbara City College, Westmont, UCSB, and Isla Vista. Representatives at each school reported the cars are well-liked and heavily used. They’re faster than a bus and cheaper than a cab ride to run errands, attend a doctor’s appointment, or even take a quick trip home, explained James Wagner, UCSB’s Transportation Alternatives Program manager, and they’re available to students under 24, the typical cutoff age to rent a car.“People are really happy with them,” he said.

ice Hot and cold

Federal Agency Ping-Pongs on Shaming S.B. Sheriff by Kelsey Brugger resident Donald trump’s immigration initiative rollout is giving Santa Barbara County officials whiplash. Two weeks ago, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) issued a report accusing the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office of “potentially endangering Americans” by releasing an inmate convicted of forgery. A few days later, ICE field director David Marin called Sheriff Bill Brown to apologize for the “error.” It turned out the inmate was not from Santa Barbara. But less than a week later, ICE besmirched Santa Barbara again. The next report, which is updated weekly, accused the county of being among the top 10 worst offenders in the country for failing to cooperate with federal law enforcement on “a routine basis” during a one-week period in early February. “It’s frustrating,” Brown said Monday. “My frustration is not with the local ICE authorities. It’s with the way this thing was rolled out.” Brown was much more measured in his criticism of ICE officials than his counterpart in Kern County, which was accused of being the third most uncooperative county in the country. Sheriff Donny Youngblood convened a press conference to declare the information “fake.” The confusion centers on the release of foreign-born inmates from county jails who are wanted by ICE. When ICE agents find an inmate they wish to detain — by searching through a sheriff’s database — they issue what are known as “immigration detainers.” They ask jail staff to hold these inmates for 48 hours beyond their release date so they have time to pick them up. But under a California law passed in 2014 — known as the TRUST (Transparency and Responsibility Using State Tools) Act — sheriffs are prohibited from holding defendants longer than their local sentence.


The ICE report functions as nothing more than a scare tactic to compel sheriffs to cooperate out of a fear of losing federal funds, argued Marisol Alarcon, an immigration attorney in Carpinteria.“It’s misleading,” she said. Santa Barbara County receives $1 million in funds from the federal government. Of that, Brown said, $350,000 is specifically for housing undocumented immigrants in jail. Virginia Kice, an ICE spokesperson, explained the report lists the declined detainers that ICE agents became aware of during that week in February. “ICE can only report what we know,” she said. She acknowledged criticism of the rollout but said the reports have “succeeded in focusing attention on an issue we believe is a vital importance to public safety. … It’s got people talking, and that’s important.” The second report stated ICE agents became aware Santa Barbara County officials “declined” 24 detainer requests. But Brown argued that’s not even statistically possible. “We are the 17th most populous county in the state. If we are all doing the same thing, there is no reason we would appear on a top 10 [list],” he said. “It can’t be accurate.” Exactly who these 24 inmates are and what they have been charged with is information Brown said even the local ICE agents don’t have access to.“It’s generated in Washington,” he explained. “I think [local ICE authorities] have been as frustrated as we have been as far as this change in policy.” Though he said his frustration was not directed toward President Trump, Brown said he thought the new administration was going through “some growing pains.” “There is a lot of data,” he said.“All the sudden, now you have this additional mandate … They are working to get it resolved at a national level.” cont’d on page 17 É

hen writer Leslie Westbrook was interviewing the owners of Carpinteria’s Farm Cart — Jason and Katherine Lesh — for a piece in Edible Santa Barbara magazine, a lightbulb went off. “I learned about their social justice concerns and big hearts,” she said. Already aware that many low-income families were afraid to re-register for food stamps since President Donald Trump took office, Westbrook enlisted the Leshes to help. They agreed to provide at-cost organic produce boxes filled with cilantro, onions, radishes, lettuce, papaya, and other vegetables. Westbrook found 12 families, identified by a friend who is a social worker, to receive them. The group of supporters just started a week ago, but they’ve already raised $500. The effort is being made through the Carpinteria chapter of Indivisible, the national organization that sprang up to resist the Trump agenda.

Standing in front of the Farm Cart, a rustic wagon planted in front of the Carpinteria library that has been selling area organic produce for five years, Westbrook, who is the cofounder of Indivisible Carpinteria, explained there are many ways to resist Trump. This effort addresses a need in a tangible way, she said. “Parents are afraid to walk their kids to school.” Kids are playing “La Migra”— Spanish for immigration authorities — and pretending to lock each other up. Several other efforts have been underway in the small community of Carp, Westbrook said. On Tuesday night, about 100 people gathered at the Plaza Playhouse Theater to watch the movie 1984.

County Launching Online Registry of Marijuana Farmers by Kelsey Brugger

“The Tax is On Us”

ressed in plaid button-up shirts and Carhartt vests, farmers showed up to the fourth floor of the County Administration Building on Tuesday to praise the county supervisors for their “progressive” approach to legalizing cannabis production. But Peter Adam, the ultraconservative supervisor and fifth-generation farmer, told them to “change the word ‘progressive’ to ‘libertarian.’ ” In a way, the exchange perfectly embodied the end to California’s prohibition on the recreational use of marijuana. In Santa Barbara County, it appears to be a bipartisan effort. Even those — like Adam —who were once opposed to pot for pleasure have somewhat begrudgingly gotten on board after voters passed Proposition 64 last November. To that end, the county supervisors voted Tuesday to launch an online registry to allow pot growers — existing and potential—to provide seven pages of detailed information about their operations. Where are they located? County Supervisor Janet Wolf (top) and Liz Rogan How many plants do they grow? What with the Cannabis Business Council of Santa is their water supply?

So, too, did councilmembers Bendy White and Jason Dominguez, City Administrator Paul Casey, planning czar George Buell, Police Chief Lori Luhnow, and a host of commercial agents and business owners.

Others, like Gene Montesano —owner of Lucky Brand Jeans—pushed to close off State Street to traffic two weekends a month, allowing business owners to set up shop on the sidewalks, creating a quasi-famers’ market feel. As for the homeless, Mayor Schneider urged those in attendance to participate in collaborative efforts now underway to find housing for those in need. New laws banning smoking anywhere, she said, gave police a new tool. Chief Luhnow noted retirements and transfers have left her department down by eight officers, but a wave of new recruits were just starting. In addition, she announced she’ll be starting a new “ambassador”—volunteers dressed in uniforms and equipped with radios —program to provide a positive presence downtown. But cops cost money, and City Hall is stretched thin and getting thinner. If property owners are willing to tax themselves —via a revised business improvement district — the proceeds can be used to pay for enhanced security, among other things. For that to happen, said Maggie Campbell, a lot more property owners need to be not just in the same room but on the same page. Her organization, she noted, will celebrate its 50th anniversary next week. In that time, she said, the downtown has had to reinvent itself over and over again. It can do it again. Bob Tuler of Radius said he was gratified the meeting took place at all, but he expressed a keen sense of urgency. “How many more vacancies do we have to see for the city and the owners to step up? Do we n have to go from 45 to 60?”


Matt McFarlin, president of the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association, took exception to the public perception that Santa Barbara custody deputies have failed to cooperate with ICE officials.“It’s not an order. It’s a request,” he asserted, adding, “We don’t create the laws. We follow the laws.” What Brown’s custody staff does—when possible — is inform ICE agents exactly when wanted inmates will be released from County Jail or are scheduled to be on the premises to get their electronic monitor removed.

While sheriff’s officials stress their cooperation with ICE agents, immigration activists contend the relationship has been too cozy.“When you give ICE unfettered access to the county database, they can look for anyone who is foreign born and match it up with the release date,” Alarcon said. As for President Trump’s immigration initiative more generally, she called it “hateful.” “He doesn’t quite understand the problem, and he’s preying on people’s fears that immigrants are here to steal people’s jobs,” she said.“The reality is it is the opposite.” n

welcome “We felt very lucky to have the staff at Cottage Children’s involved in Huxley’s care. Their expertise made us feel confident that our baby was in good hands.” - Abbie and Derek Olson

Huxley Santa Barbara

When Huxley was only three weeks old he was diagnosed with pyloric stenosis after several episodes of projectile vomiting. He spent the night at Cottage Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) and was taken into surgery the next day. Huxley made a quick recovery and has grown to be a strong, healthy, happy boy. Children and families benefit from receiving nationally recognized patient care. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you choose the extensive children’s health care services at CCMC, which includes acute care pediatrics, neonatal and pediatric intensive care units (NICU and PICU), a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center, and outpatient Grotenhuis Pediatric Clinics throughout the tri-counties.

Eat, Dog, Eat

SELECTIVE OUTRAGE: Somehow I never worried much about Big Brother rifling

through my underwear drawer. I know I should. I feel bad that I don’t. Naturally, I mustered all the requisite indignation expected when it was revealed — post-9/11 — that thousands of card-carrying American citizens had been “inadvertently” spied on by the National Security Agency — without benefit of warrant or due process — during the Regime of George Bush the W. That was wrong. I made a point to say as much. But my heart wasn’t really in it. Who among us does not crave the sense of selfimportance that only comes from being spied upon? No matter how inflammatory I made my emails, no clipped men in rainy black suits — and, yes, Tom Hanks would play both of them when Steven Spielberg got around to making the movie of my life — came knocking on my door. We live in an age of desperate self-affirmation. I clearly did not matter. The therapy bills have been crushing. That being said, I remember being struck by the indifference to this outrage from Republicans who otherwise proclaimed a quasi-religious devotion to the U.S. Constitution and the principles for which it stands. I understand it has lots of amendments, but fourth from the very top is the one saying no searches or seizures without probable cause.Warrants have to be obtained on which judges have to sign off. That kind of stuff. Their silence was deafening.

Imagine my relief when the Right Side of the Aisle started waking up to such things. The Party of “Lock ’em Up” now cares about how

evidence is obtained and even — on occasion — the rights of the accused. It started last year when Democrats — desperate to pass some kind of gun-control law — wanted to ban anyone on the Transportation Safety Administration’s No Fly List of suspected terrorists from buying a gun. Republicans objected — ferociously, I might add — that many on the list had been unjustly accused. My head spun. What planet was I on? The Republicans prevailed. The TSA terrorists would be allowed to buy guns. A new day has clearly dawned, as the case of Donald Trump’s deposed national security adviser Michael Flynn dramatically demonstrates. Flynn got deep-sixed when it became known he failed to report that he’d met on several occasions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump was sworn in as president. In one of those meetings, Flynn discussed serious sanctions that Barack Obama — in the waning moments of his administration — had imposed on Russia’s Vladimir Putin for interfering in last November’s presidential election. It’s obvious to anyone but a simpleton Flynn assured his Russian counterpart the sanctions would not last. What else could explain Russia’s total lack of response to Obama’s action? At any other time in American history, Flynn’s conduct would be considered treason-

ous. Charges would be filed and perps marched.

Traditionally, Republicans have led any and all charges where alleged Russki malfeasance has been hinted at. Trump himself was personally mentored by one of the most accomplished Red-baiters of all time, Roy Cohn. Republican response to the Flynn scandal has been heartening, albeit perversely. How is it, Trump and his GOP defenders have thundered, the government knew Flynn was meeting with Kislyak? Why wasn’t Flynn’s name properly “masked,” as proper protocol requires when any American incidentally surfaces in such international security intercepts? These, by the way, are issues civil libertarians cared deeply about when the Bush administration rammed the so-called Patriot Act down the country’s throat in the wake of 9/11. Republicans at the time — with a handful of notable exceptions — could not have been more contemptuous. For those now expecting Trump and the GOP to exhume and exonerate the fried corpses of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, dispatched as Russian spies to the electric chair in 1953, don’t hold your breath. Even if the Rosenbergs were infamously framed, they also happened to be guilty. Trump’s civil-libertarian aversion to Big Brother is lamentedly selective and predictably transactional. This Monday — with not a single tweet — Trump signed a law repealing an internet privacy bill successfully ram-rodded through Congress by Obama. The Obama bill would prevent big internet service providers, such as Verizon, Comcast, and AT&T, from strip-mining its customers’ browsing histories and selling the aggregated

search and click data to various and sundry internet advertisers unless individual customers gave their explicit and affirmative consent. One might wonder, what’s the fuss? Don’t Google and already know you even better than your dog does? How much more can your inner sanctum be intruded upon? Apparently, quite a lot. What Google knows, Facebook might not. It turns out they maintain their own separate silos of excruciatingly personal information about their customers’ keystroke proclivities. Next to God, internet service providers have the most total picture of who we really are. There are no silos. By a narrow margin, the Republican Congress voted to veto these paltry protections to which the internet service provider universe took offense. Such a requirement, they objected, would impede the pace of innovation, as if that means anything. It would, they contend with a perfectly straight face, block consumers from the knowledge they so desperately need to make informed shopping choices. It goes without saying that these companies would never do anything untoward with such detailed information. Likewise, it goes without saying that their political contributions — to all parties — has been nothing less than overwhelming. Like advertising, campaign donations are, after all, considered free speech. The good news here is that the protections that Trump just revoked hadn’t gone into effect yet. To steal a line from Muddy Waters, you can’t lose what you never had. Worry about Big Brother? —  Nick Welsh Why bother?

Timothy Ferris McMahon 04/21/27-12/30/16

On December 30, 2016 Tim McMahon spent the day with his wife and friends filling his room with love and sharing with each other laughter and stories of his endless adventures throughout the years. That evening he peacefully left the loving embrace of his wife Cindy and set off on a new adventure. Tim was born on April 21, 1927, in Seattle, Washington, the son of Roy Gruwell and Catherine Ferris. At the age of 3 he, together with his mother, moved to Santa Barbara, attending local schools. At the completion of high school he joined the Army. Upon discharge he entered UCSB on the Riviera Campus, graduating in 1950, and entered law school at Hastings College of the Law. Tim began his law practice in Santa Barbara in 1954, served for 2 ½ years as the Judge of the Carpinteria-Montecito Justice Court and practiced law with Brelsford, McMahon & Butcher & Loberg. During his law career he served as President of the Santa Barbara County Bar Association and the Santa Barbara County Law Library Board of Trustees. He also served as a Special Master for the State Bar of California. Tim had a varied law practice and was best known for his uncompromising ethics, integrity, truthfulness, and his dedication to his clients. In 1997 the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors honored Tim and his brother Patrick by renaming the Santa Barbara County Law Library “The McMahon Law Library." At the age of 60 Tim retired and he and Cindy moved to the Santa Ynez Valley and began their life together. He restored antique farm tractors, reconnected with his friends at Midland School, had cof coffee with his buddies regularly, hiked with his Labradors, perfected his garden and considered himself the luckiest man alive to have such a life with Cindy in Santa Ynez. Tim was the ultimate outdoorsman with hunting, fishing, scuba diving, camping, backpacking, motorcycle and bicycle riding adventures throughout his life. His many friends were fortunate in that he shared many of these loves 20


with them by organizing group bike and camping trips. He cherished numerous hunting trips with his sons and friends, including several to Argentina. His Labradors and his home were the center of his life. He travelled several times a year to Montana, Wyoming, Oregon and Arizona – his dogs and Cindy always accompanying him. His beloved Tule, a chocolate Labrador of 12 years, followed him in death several days later. He was a voracious reader. He consumed the New Yorker as soon as it arrived every week and decided at the age of 70 to read every Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Tim is survived by his wife Cindy, his children, Timothy M. McMahon, Stephen P. McMahon and Catherine A. McMahon and his grandchildren Kimberly, Ryan, Natalie, Thomas, Megan, Chandler and Piper. Tim was predeceased by his father Roy Gruwell, his step-father and mother Leo T. McMahon and Catherine (Kit) McMahon and his brother Patrick L. McMahon. A Celebration of Tim’s life will be held on April 22, 2017, from 11:30 to 2:30 at Montanaro Farm, 2531 Grand Avenue, Los Olivos, California. RSVP to highlandmac@

Albert Steven Frederick Elwood 04/01/43-02/23/17

farm and raised chickens and goats. He graduated from High School in Vallejo, California where he found his niche working after school in an electronic repair shop. He would fix just about anything and his nieces and nephews still marvel over their childhood memories of him taking transistor radios apart and then diligently putting them back together and making them work! Albert's siblings married and spanned the coast of California. He would visit them and eventually made Goleta his hometown. Goleta Pier was one of his favorite spots to take his nieces and nephews fishing. He worked for the Santa Barbara County over 20 years. During his later years of life, Albert spent a great deal of time at the Devereux Foundation surrounded by peers and staff who adored him. He would come daily rain or shine ready to work at the Greenhouse—from tending to the plants to cleaning up roads or running errands to Home Depot. Albert graciously made himself available. He was and will continue to be an honored member of the Greenhouse Guild. Albert never spoke ill of others and was loved by all who knew him. He had tremendous integrity and was fiercely independent. He will be remembered by his kind, caring, and considerate spirit. He was a wonderful person, brother, uncle and friend - He was respected and cared about by all who crossed paths with him. May you rest in peace. We love you (Uncle) Albert. There will be a Mass at 11:30 on Friday, April 7, 2017 at St. Mark's Church in Isla Vista. A Celebration of Life for Albert will take place at 1:30 the same afternoon at Devereux. The family would like to thank Devereux and Serenity House for their gracious support. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to either of these programs.

Mervin Louis Lane Jr. 10/05/28-12/31/16

Mervin Louis Lane Jr., a resident of Santa Barbara, California for over 67 years, died peacefully in his sleep on December 31, 2016, on the last day of Hanukkah. He was born in New York City on October 5, 1928, and raised in a Sephardic Jewish family the eldest of four children.

Mervin grew up with a great enthusiasm for sports and music. He attended the New York High School of Performing Arts as an accomplished pianist and percussionist performing in a number of New York orchestras. Upon graduation he was offered a full music scholarship to the Yale School of Music, however he declined the scholarship and instead, decided to hitchhike through post war Europe with only a duffel bag and guitar on his back. Having lost all but one surviving Dutch relative to the Holocaust, Mervin’s time in Holland and France deeply influenced the path that formed the rest of his life. There the importance of the arts took on new meaning and his interests beyond music grew to include the visual arts, literature, poetry and the importance of freedom of expression and original thinking. Upon his return to the United States, Mervin enrolled in the innovative yet little known Black Mountain College in North Carolina - known as the first bi-racial, experimental liberal arts college in the South. The school gave rise to many notable artists, thinkers and writers, such as Walter Gropius, William and Elaine de Kooning, Josef and Anni Albers, Arthur Penn, M.C. Richards, Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Ruth Asawa and Kenneth Nolan, hosting guest faculty the likes of Albert Einstein, William Carlos Williams, Buckminster Fuller and May Sarton. While attending Black Mountain Merve met his first wife, dancer and choreographer June Rice Lane Christensen. Merve and June married and moved to Greenwich Village in New York City where they continued their studies in music and dance. A dream of teaching and building an art center for children took them to the West Coast where they eventually settled in Santa Barbara, California. In 1951 Merve and June bought an acre of land on Mountain Drive and began building their own adobe home and dance studio by hand, becoming part of the original Mountain Drive Community. In 1953 their daughter Katherine was born and in 1956 their son Nathan. The house was completed in 1958. In the aftermath of the Coyote Fire in 1964 when much of Mountain Drive burned, the family home survived but the marriage ended. Some years later Mervin married Margaret Robinson, remaining deeply devoted until her passing in 2013. In the 1950’s Mervin taught music at both Kate and Devereux Schools. He studied recorder with neighbor and music professor, Nazi German refuge Erik Katz, helping form a local classical baroque and renaissance music group, the Colle-

gium Musicum of Santa Barbara. In 1961 he completed his Masters Degree at UCSB and began teaching English Literature at Santa Barbara City College. Over his 33 year tenure he became known for his additions to the College curriculum; teaching Yoga (as the first certified Yoga teacher in the Santa Barbara City Schools), Tai Chi and a Philosophy Course on Buckminster Fuller. Mervin’s primary passion was in American Literature and the works of Marcel Proust. He will probably be best remembered for his 28 years of teaching through Santa Barbara Continuing Education the works of Henry James and Proust’s ‘Remembrance of Things Past’. In his spare time, Mervin studied Chinese calligraphy, practiced the piano, Tai Chi and Yoga until a stroke impaired his movement. He loved to laugh, tell stories, play tennis, swim, and enjoy exotic foods and spices. He was an amazing cook, forever looking for the perfect pastrami and chicken liver sandwich none of which could compare to the delicatessens of New York City. In retirement Mervin continued to write and study literature. His published works include ‘Sprouted Seeds: Black Mountain College - An Anthology of Personal Accounts,' ‘Going To Town,’ ‘Ancient Letters’ and ‘Houston Passage’. Sadly, in 2008 Mervin and Margaret lost the family home to the Santa Barbara Tea Fire in which everything, including all art, collection of letters and unpublished works were lost. His last years with Margaret were spent at Vista del Monte until her death. He later moved to Peppers Estate where he spent his time rereading the classics, the writings of Confucius and Emerson always by his side. In December, Mervin transferred to hospice care spending his final days at Serenity House. Mervin is survived by his brother Christopher, his children Katherine, Nathan, Robbie, Maia, Tamar, Rima and Louis, their spouses and families, including 8 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren along with his beloved nieces and nephews. We honor the many ways Mervin influenced and intellectually challenged us: to be self-determining, authentic and creative, to openly view the world, approach matters honestly, and live a life full of reverence - in the true Oxford definition meaning of the word. An outdoor memorial service will be held on Mountain Drive, April 23, 2017. RSVP for location and details (805) 729-4456. For those students of Mervin who were inspired to write, please bring a copy of a short piece to read, share and post on Mervin’s memorial wall!

The Bird Lady

Many years after she was forced, due to failing eyesight, to give up caring for injured or orphaned birds, Maureen would get phone calls such as that and was able to direct the caller to the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network. I met Maureen in the early ’80s when a mutual friend suggested I might like to join a small group of volunteers dedicated to rescuing wild creatures. Especially during the spring months, these devoted animal lovers had cages and baskets and boxes in their homes, filled with babies that had fallen out of nests or were orphaned or injured and which they nurtured until they could be released back into the wild. Maureen, who ran her own business from home, often had more than 50 birds and small mammals to clean, feed, and medicate. As word got around and ever more people heard about the group and brought them birds and mammals they found, it became evident that a more structured system was needed.

Born in Huntington Park, California, the youngest of six with 5 older sisters, which may explain why he never left the toilet seat up! He was very enterprising from a young age and held many jobs; a paperboy, box boy and a grocery checker. Sandy then joined the hippy movement and moved to Haight Ashbury, listened to the Grateful Dead, and drove a Chicken Delight truck for work. Then Uncle Sam called and he spent 2 years in the Army, and later went to school on the G.I bill at Cal State Fullerton, received a B.A. degree in Anthropology and later met the love of his life, Helen. A devoted husband for 40 years and father to two beautiful girls, Kelsey and Karlyn, he was the best supporter anyone could ask for. Always going over and beyond, from making coffee in the morning to fire places at night. His secret love for old classic Broadway musicals was a good transition to 20 years of attending his daughter’s ballet performances and dance competitions. The adventurer that he was, he took his family on the best of the best trips around the world. From swimming with manta rays in Hawaii to the flying trapeze in Turks and Caicos to monkey chasing in Malaysia to Tequila tasting in Mexico to ATV’s in Aruba and snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. The adventures were endless. These adventures ultimately led him to a new sense of adrenaline: The IRONMAN RACE- a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, followed by a full 26.2 mile marathon. Sandy approached this newfound Swim, Bike, Run athletic event at the age of 60, despite the fact he didn’t know how to swim! His type A personality combined with passion, drive and enthusiasm were the perfect mix for a triathlon. He found a supportive new community of friends and training partners taking part in the SBAA Running Club, the Master Swim Club and his infamous Sunday Bike Crew. Also a member of the Santa Barbara Triathlon Club, he quickly became a fixture at Club meetings and weekly training sessions with the club. He was a generous business sponsor and promoter of running and tri events. It was not uncommon to have a conversation or receive an email from Sandy outlining the top three reasons why you should sign up to compete in a race with him at some exotic destination. One great benefit to racing with Sandy in distant locations was simply to be invited to the sendoff barbecue at his beautiful home, alongside the Hostess with the Mostess, Helen.

Sandy's constant focus to improve would ultimately result in an impressive list of athletic accomplishments. He began to dominate the local sprint and Olympic distance races, often winning his age group, and then set his sights on his ultimate goal: The Ironman - Sandy completed his first Ironman in Arizona, followed by the North American Ironman Championships in Mont Tremblant, Canada, with a podium finish. With that success he achieved the ultimate Ironman goal: The World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. Sandy chose Ironman Canada at Whistler as his qualification race, claiming first place in his age group therefore obtaining a starting slot at the World Championships in Hawaii. He raced and finished at the World Championships, achieving 12th in the world in his age group. In that same year Sandy also qualified for and competed in the Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico, which qualified him for Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Australia. He qualified and raced in the Boston Marathon, swam the “escape from Alcatraz” open ocean race, all after learning to swim at the age of 60. Sandy was and continues to be an inspiration to many, demonstrating that at any age, with a sincere heart and determination, you can achieve anything you set your mind to do. His legacy will live on in his athletic achievements, but he will be remembered most for his generosity of spirit, his constant smile, his words of encouragement and kindness, that twinkle in his eyes and his fierce devotion to his family and friends. A life well lived, he left no words unsaid, and gave all of the hugs, love and smiles he had to give. Sandy left us in the act of doing what he loved. We should all be so lucky. Godspeed dear Sandy...and until we meet again, wishing you the wind at your back and a glorious sunset ahead. #smileforsandy #wwsd Written By: John Herzog (Sandy’s Friend and Training Buddy for Life) *Sandy was scheduled to race the St. Croix ½ Ironman on May 7th with 3 of his friends who will now be doing it in his honor. His wife and 2 daughters will also be attending to represent his true spirit of passion and dedication to life.

Lake Intake?


ake Cachuma has been reported at increasing levels of water containment, and always 193,000plus acre-feet is shown as “capacity.” Is that true? How is capacity measured? And if that measurement is based on the original size and capacity of the lake when the dam was closed, has silting over the years since then been taken into account? Might the true capacity now —Des O’Neill, S.B. be significantly less?

Meeting Musings


wonder if, just maybe, there’s a world where the headlines might read,“Landlords Conspire on Eve of Tenants’ Rights Meeting.” But not, apparently, in Santa Barbara. In “Landlords Resist Tenant Protections” [], we learn that, the night before the City Council meeting,“more than 200 property owners” met at the DoubleTree to strategize. And the meeting was closed to the press. And the director of the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association has not spoken to the press about the meeting. But she does say “her intention was to ‘bring people together’ to develop common solutions.” So why all the secrecy? What on earth could property owners possibly think everybody doesn’t already —Leo Raabe, S.B. know about?

Another Huge Tax


ot again. California, the highest taxed state in the nation, is about to pay even more in taxes. Governor Jerry Brown won the support of Democrats to push through a transportation bill funded by raising gas taxes and Department of Motor Vehicles usage fees. According to the Sacramento Bee, Brown revealed California’s roads are in poor shape, and he wants a $5.2 billion road-funding package. His plan would hike the state’s gas tax (by 12 cents) and set up a “user fee” based on a sliding scale tied to the vehicle’s value. Once again, Californians are getting screwed. How can we trust our politicians? They have diverted money for infrastructure to general funds, used tax money for free college for illegal aliens, wasted money on a high-

speed train that no one wanted, and increased pensions for public unions. Nobody is looking out for “we the people.” —Don Thorn, Carpinteria

Healing Art


our article on Hank Pitcher was outstanding []. I first met Hank surfing at Isla Vista Beach in the early 1960s. Through the years, I watched as his artistic skills went through the roof, and I often continued to surf with him. When I served on the Capital Campaign Committee, securing funds for construction of the newly opened Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital, the concept of “Healing Art” was explained, and the decision was made to include the works of local artists who would have a feeling for the region. The beautiful works are now on the walls of the new hospital. When it came time to choose what I considered to be the most important work of art for the hospital, I immediately thought of Hank. His recent landscapes took on the feeling that is so expertly expressed in Roger Durling’s fine article. Hank’s calm and “healing” expression of the Goleta environment is now located in the lobby of the new Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital. Hank and Frank Goss donated significantly, and it was further financed by a generous contribution by Sue and Brian Kelly. When you visit the new hospital, you will be more than impressed.

The Life-and-Death Difference Planned Parenthood’s Cancer Screenings Save Lives


by Dr. AyeshA shAikh

s a practicing physician for 32 years, I have dedicated my life to the health and well-being of people worldwide. I moved to California in 1984, focusing my OB/GYN practice on our community here in Santa Barbara. Every year I see hundreds of patients at all stages of cancer treatment and recovery. This commitment to my practice and patients makes it all the more disheartening and disturbing to see politics threatening health-care access for people in our state — especially those who already have the least access to health care. Last week, Republican leadership and the White House tried to jam through a bill that would have cut millions of women off their health insurance, ended access to Planned Parenthood, and threatened maternity care and family planning. It is thanks to champions like Congressmember Salud Carbajal in the House, and women and men across the country rising up, that we were able to protect health care for millions and protect access to Planned Parenthood. I know firsthand that Planned Parenthood health centers are an irreplaceable resource for lifesaving cancer screenings, prevention, and referrals for women in California. Planned Parenthood’s health centers nationwide provided 635,000 cancer screenings in 2015, including more than 360,000 breast exams and more than 270,000 Pap tests, and are critical for early detection and ensuring that patients are connected to any follow-up care they need right away. Without Planned Parenthood, many patients would have nowhere else to go for care. As a physician, I know that screenings save lives. Every year, almost 13,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and more than 4,000 American women die of the disease. Latinas and AfricanAmerican women have higher rates of cervical cancer than other groups and are also more likely to die of the disease. More than half of cervical cancer cases are in women who have never been screened or in those who haven’t been screened in the past five years. As many as 93 percent of cervical cancer cases could be prevented by screening and HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccination. Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the U.S. and has a particularly devastating impact on women of color. That’s why we

need to be working together to ensure that more people have access to regular cancer screenings, rather than fewer. The claims made by politicians that other health-care providers could serve Planned Parenthood patients are false. More than half of Planned Parenthood providers are in underserved areas. The idea that other providers could absorb Planned Parenthood’s patients has been resoundingly dismissed by experts. In fact, Georges Benjamin, the executive director of the American Public Health Association, has called the idea “ludicrous.” As a physician, I know what it means when someone is forced to delay or skip preventive screenings because the nearest provider is 100 miles away or won’t take

their insurance. It means putting off getting the lump in your breast checked out or skipping your next Pap — it’s the difference between life and death. Blocking patients from getting care at Planned Parenthood health centers would leave millions cut off from lifesaving cancer screenings and other preventive care. Those hurt the most would be communities already having a hard time getting by and those who already face barriers to accessing health care—especially people of color, people with low-to-moderate incomes, and people who live in rural areas. We know this is the beginning, not the end. The political attacks on Planned Parenthood are very real and will harm the 35,000 patients seen annually in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties who rely on our local affiliate, Planned Parenthood California Central Coast, for care every year. Thank you, Congressmember Salud Carbajal, for standing with us, and I urge you to continue to reject any attempt to cut off millions of women from essential health care at Planned Parenthood. Dr. Ayesha Shaikh is a practicing OB/ GYN in Santa Barbara and boardmember of Planned Parenthood California Central Coast. 805-437-2748

I Bear Hugs Sends Teddies to Syrian Refugees I f you are the lucky recipient of a stuffed bunny, duck, or bear this Easter, or the generous giver of one, consider spreading the good cheer to a child who may dearly need the gesture of love. With Bear Hugs, a teddy bear donation program for Syrian refugee children, UCSB senior Melissa Ha and junior Jennifer Lin hope to create an international youth-to-youth connection and send a message of solidarity to the thousands of kids stranded in camps in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. Ha, a global studies major, was inspired by the teddies of Valentine’s Day to send a message of shared

humanity and cultural exchange. “We get to recognize and be aware that other kids around the world may not be as fortunate as us and allow us to share this moment of compassion and understanding,” she said. Bear Hugs is aiming to send 250 bears from the West Coast. The community at large is encouraged to drop off teddy bears and other stuffed animals at one of three collection centers (Wake Cup and Spudnuts in Isla Vista, or CorePower Yoga in Goleta) or contribute monetary donations for school supplies through — Richie DeMaria

t seeps from our coastal cliffs, it bubbles up from our channel waters, and an entire civilization was built around it. It’s asphaltum, the liquefied, black, petroleum-based substance otherwise known as tar that oozes out from ocean originates in places like the Carpinteria Tar Pits and makes for many a frustrating footfall if you’re not careful. Asphaltum is also the subject of a new exhibit at the S.B. Maritime Museum (SBMM), and the public is invited to a free opening reception on Thursday, April 6, 5:30-7 p.m. The following week, the museum will host Asphaltum: Chumash Super Glue, a lecture presented by Chumash Elder Julie Tumamait-Stenslie and archaeologist John Foster, April 13, at 7 p.m. “Asphaltum is a substance used in almost everything the Chumash did— did in decorations, in ritual objects, in clothing, to make water bottles with, and they used it for tools and things. It played a part in their everyday life,” Foster said. Foster, a retired California State Parks archaeologist, has conducted hundreds of excavations throughout the western United States on both prehistoric and historical sites, and he continues to work for their conservation. He will lend a historical overview of the Chumash and their use of local oil seepages, along with Tumamait-Stenslie, who will share stories from the ancient Chumash tradition and how asphaltum plays into their cultural history. Tumamait-Stenslie can trace family roots to at least 11 known Chumash villages going as far north as San Luis Obispo and as far south as Malibu, as well as almost everywhere in between. She continues to serve the community as chairperson for the Barbareño/Ventureño Band of Mission Indians and as spiritual adviser for CSU Channel Islands. Their talk marks the opening of a new exhibit on the Chumash use of asphaltum at SBMM, which covers a hugely significant chapter in S.B.’s maritime history. IN DIFFERENT FORMS: Displayed at the “Asphaltum was pervasive Maritime Museum in solid and semi-solid in everything the Chumash form, this sticky, viscous petroleum-based substance seeps on area beaches. did with regard to maritime identification,” Foster said. Most importantly, the asphaltum played an indispensable role in the construction of the Chumash peoples’ revolutionary tomol canoe, which replaced an earlier, unreliable boat model made of balsa and slough reeds. “Asphaltum was a key component in basically one of the first watercraft Native Americans ever used,” he said. “They could use it to get all the way out to the islands, and by doing that, it broadened the capabilities of Chumash to feed themselves.” Their abalone fishhooks were bound to the cordage with asphaltum, and their harpoons were sewn to the staff with the same substance. Foster is fascinated with the “commonality between prehistory and the modern world. We do the same thing with the same resource — we use tar and hydrocarbons in almost everything we do. It’s an important and pervasive aspect of our cultural identity as it was with the Chumash who were here up to 10,000-12,000 years ago,” he said. “I think the value here for us from an educational standpoint is to show people that we’re not all that different.” — RD There will be a free opening reception for the S.B. Maritime Museum’s new asphaltum exhibit on Thursday, April 6, 5:30-7 p.m., and Asphaltum: Chumash Super Glue takes place Thursday, April 13, 7 p.m., at the S.B. Maritime Museum (113 Harbor Wy.).

Exploring Ventura’s Waterfront by bikE


ith beautiful scenery, great parks, and varied topography, Ventura has been on my list of family biking destinations for a while, but the logistics of biking from Santa Barbara with two young boys always felt overwhelming. Rentals provide an opportunity to skip the stress and focus on enjoying the ride. As I sign the rental paperwork, my husband supervises the never-ending tinkering of our sons inside the Ventura Bike Depot (239 W. Main St., Ventura; 652-1114; The boys ding bells, climb onto kid-sized bikes, and twist the crank of the old-fashioned gumball machine, yet the staff treats them as welcome entertainment. The shop’s family-friendly atmosphere is cultivated by owner Shelley Sund, whose own son grew up there. Sund got into the bike business in 1984. While on a trip to Greece, she saw the multi-person pedal bikes that have since become ubiquitous at beach towns everywhere. Once back stateside, she contacted the manufacturer and began importing the bikes from Italy. “Everybody told me I was crazy,” she said, “but I had an instinct.” Sund— who frequently comes up with short sayings such as Sund “Live life in the bike lane” and “More butts on bikes makes everyone safer”— owned six shops at one point, including locations in Santa safer” Barbara, Oxnard, and Lake Casitas. She downsized after her nowteenage son was born. “It’s much more manageable now,” explained Sund, who opened the Ventura Bike Depot in 1995. In addition to sales and tours, the shop rents everything from beach cruisers and downhill mountain bikes to electric bikes. “It’s in a perfect location, within a mile of multiple Class 1 bike lanes,” she said. Our family’s suggested route starts about a block from the shop. Reminiscent of Santa Barbara’s Cabrillo bike path, the Omer Rains Coastal Trail follows the beach in a flat, unbroken stretch that is inviting to beginners, families, and those seeking a leisurely ride. After the mechanics set us up with a front-mount seat for our toddler and a trailer bike for our 5-year-old, we travel a short distance alongside the Ventura River, admiring birds and rock sculptures, and then pass over the train tracks, much to the delight of our cheering boys. Turning left, we follow alongside the beach, watching surfers enjoy a winter swell. The path merges with the Ventura Promenade, and about a mile and a half in, we arrive at the pier. There is an impressive children’s playground built directly on the sand. This would be a good stopping point for snacks or even lunch at one of the restaurants, but the kids are content to keep moving. At about the three-mile mark, the path merges onto the street, becoming a bike lane. We continue through a picturesque residential neighborhood for a few blocks, on to the Marina playground for lunch and some seaside play. The park makes for a perfect morning distance of about seven miles round-trip. Back at the shop, we return the bikes and let the kids slide quarters into the gumball machine. Sund says connecting with people is one of the best parts of her job. “There’s always a backstory. We pay attention to people’s lives; the bike is only part of their story.” Then she shares her newest saying: “The family that bikes together, stays together.” —Andie Bridges

POOLING KNOWLEDGE: Combining research from the UC system with other universities, David López-Carr’s Planetary Health Center of Expertise combines scientific resources from across the academic spectrum.

hen it comes to researching planetary health, UCSB geography professor David López-Carr is at the forefront. In October 2016, he cofounded the Planetary Health Center of Expertise, under which interdisciplinary researchers from the UC system and beyond study the complex interaction of human and natural forces. Funded by the National Science Foundation and the Gates Foundation, the team is underwriting $1.5 million in creative projects to tackle complicated problems around the globe. One such project is López-Carr’s work with UCSB zoology professor Armand Kuris and two Stanford researchers: They’re introducing prawns (which eat the snails that host parasitic worms that cause disease) to key river systems in sub-Saharan Africa, a problem initially created by the building of dams. This spring, the center will begin awarding seed grants to candidates from the 10 UC campuses who are studying the consequences of environmental change, particularly in the developing world. The grants will range from $1,000 to $10,000, and López-Carr hopes to distribute between $50,000 and $100,000 annually. He recently spoke to me about planetary health research.

Tell us about the center. The idea is to study

years? I hope so. The bottom line is, how can we not do this? How can we not match the resources with addressing this area of science? We can’t sit around and wait. We have to do this today. Many senior administrators and faculty have responded positively to the reality of environment change core to humans and the intersection with sustainability. But the training and the infrastructure, it will catch up 10, 20 years down the road. In the late ’90s, I was in a program at the University of North Carolina [that] broke some boundaries. These were people who were not trained [in this corner of science], but they made it happen anyway. I look at what they did and where I’m at mid-career now, and so many of us are doing so well. Now I tell my students, “You’re the beneficiaries of our work.” Why are the UCs a good place to base this research? The UCs are the place to be. We are the

largest, the most powerful, most productive university system in the world. We have increasingly had incentives from our administration to work together to take advantage of our strengths, to collaborate and work together. It’s very powerful. The UC system has superior medical schools, some of the top ecology and public health schools, and excellent strengths in modeling and statistics. It’s also unusually collaborative. The boundaries are relatively flexible, and it is relatively easy to work across departments to introduce new ideas from bottom up rather than top down. I do really feel extremely grateful to be here.

issues that will improve planetary health. It was formed by myself and epidemiologist Woutrina Smith at UC Davis. Her focus and strengths are in animal health, which is connected to environmental and human health. UC Davis specializes in the study of agriculture and land systems, and UCSB has a strong emphasis on coastal life and marine ecology. For these reasons, it was a really good match.

Are you optimistic about the future? I am optimistic. It’s a challenge, [but it’s also] an exciting opportunity. —Michael Aushenker

DID YOU KNOW... entomologist mike raupp said that the main difference between regular ants and fire ants is their aggressiveness. “They live in a large mound that you will be able to see on the ground. If you bump into that nest, they will swarm out immediately and aggressively attack you, and no other ants will do that. There are no other stinging ants in Parking on North America. so if you get stung by an ant, Salsipuedes you can pretty much assume it’s a fire ant.”

The PerPeT e ual homecomings of eT

Nyuol Tong

are not getting their fair share of jobs or privileges. “But if you look at the argument that the ‘others’ are a threat to our way of life or they’re lazy, it’s just not true. No one works harder than those refugees and immigrants. They’ve been working hard all their lives. “Generally, the return to nationalism, especially in Europe and America, is not sustainable, and those who want to restore that kind of parochialism know it,” he reflects. “You cannot keep the refugees away from your doors. It’s not sustainable. But there’s nothing more dangerous than a dying animal. That’s what Trump is.” In the meantime, Nyuol grieves for the kindhearted America he knew, and he seeks through his writing to restore truth and eloquence to a time of incoherence. “Especially when something in the present evokes the past, like this fearmongering and hatred and bigotry and cynicism that Trump has occasioned, this darkness that is not too dissimilar to what has been happening in Sudan for many decades, it’s hard not to despair. “Of all the sufferings that one endures as a refugee, hope is the most difficult. It’s not willed. It’s not you saying, ‘I’m going to be hopeful.’ It just happens. Hope is often born out of hopelessness. Refugees are the few survivors, at least in the case of South Sudan during its protracted wars; they are the ones who have made it out, the ones whom death has given a pass, to whom death has shown kindness. When you have been avoided by death — not avoided death, but avoided by death — you learn that it has nothing to do with your will. “I keep going because I have to, because there’s nothing else to do. Beckett said it best: ‘I can’t go on. I’ll go on.’ There’s nothing intentional or heroic or poetic about it. If anything, what you feel is probably embarrassment, a bit of shame, too, that you were spared, ignored by death. And there is nothing heavier to bear than death’s mercy, but I suppose that’s what you have to bear and come to terms with every day, the debt you have to pay, the reason you have to carry on, and carry on we must.” —Cynthia Carbone Ward

n a time when so much that we hold dear is being undermined, the brave and poetic voice of Nyuol Tong is a source of strength and sustenance for the fight that we now face. His story is one of unlikely outcomes and breathtaking possibility, of dreams rendered real by a welcoming America. A graduate of Duke University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and currently the inaugural Writer-in-Residence at Dunn School in Los Olivos, California, Nyuol was born in the South Sudanese village of Ayeit during a time of chaos and horror. In the 1990s, armed militiamen came in search of his father and demanded that the 6-year-old Nyuol tell them where he was. He has written about it: “When I refused, they dug a hole, threw me in, and began to fire. Luckily, I was not hurt, but my father feared a recurrence and sent my mother, siblings, and me to Khartoum. From there we sought asylum in Egypt.” For six years, Nyuol and his family were refugees in their own country, fleeing to Egypt in 2003. In Cairo, Nyuol met an American University professor who took an interest in him, recognized his ability and his yearning for education, and helped to maneuver a student visa and scholarship for him to attend high school at Dunn. Nyuol is acutely aware of his extraordinary good fortune and has sought to find ways of giving back. While a student at Dunn, he founded a nonprofit organization called SELFSudan  that has built a school in his village, and he strives to always make his life a narrative of kindness, humility, and gratitude. “I survived,” he wrote in 2012, “but more than two million people were killed in the war, with more dying even today.” (In fact, the United Nations recently declared famine in parts of South Sudan, where war, a collapsing economy, and impeded humanitarian access have resulted in an escalating catastrophe.) With his thin frame, gentle manner, and elegant bearing, Nyuol seems almost too slight to carry the unimaginable burden of what he has witnessed and experienced, but it is with him always. “Being a refugee is a perpetual kind of homecoming in which you move from place to place,” he explains, “each place holding the promise of some kind of security, stability, a community to which to belong at last— last but of course that rarely happens, and so you start to look for another home again, prepare for another homecoming. But when I came here, I felt like I had finally arrived, found that community in which I could begin anew.” The November election jolted that sense of home on many levels, particularly in terms of policies and attitudes toward immigrants. “For all my trust and confidence in my belonging to America,” says Nyuol, “I am being told that actually I don’t. My strangeness, my foreignness is being highlighted, and the figure of the refugee has been reinscribed to me.” He recognizes that some of the support for Trump stems from a sense of fear and victimhood by those who feel they

TruTh in recruiTmenT

n late February, President Donald Trump proposed a $54 billion increase in defense and security spending, meaning an increase in military jobs. In Santa Barbara County, one group, Truth in Recruitment, presents regional high school students with the realities these jobs entail. Coordinator Kate Connell and intern Ari Cohen visit high schools to educate prospective applicants of what it means to join the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines. “Our activism is directed to both students and families, to provide both with accurate information about what military recruitment really means,” Connell said. “All jobs have their risks, but a career in military is a really different choice. You can’t give 30 days’ notice; you can get thrown in jail if you don’t show up to work. You lose a lot of your civil rights,” and you could be asked to kill. “There’s kind of a sheen of advertising with the recruiting that glosses over the reality.” The U.S. Army is looking to spend $300 million toward recruiting efforts, seeking 6,000 soldiers over the next eight months, Connell said. Truth in Recruitment has visited high school career fairs with information pamphlets, and at Santa Barbara and Ernest Righetti high schools, they erected temporary cemetery displays with tombstones representing 18- to 19-year-olds killed in action. What’s more, and most significantly, they’ve worked to limit how military recruiters visit area schools. In 2014, Truth in Recruitment helped draft a formal policy change around recruitment within the Santa Barbara Unified School District. The new rules allowed equal access for those offering other post-secondary opportunities, ensured protection of student confidentiality and parent/guardian rights, and changed recruiter guidelines. In a departure from previous years, where there was no limit to recruitment visits, all military organizations are now limited to visiting schools twice a year with a maximum of three recruiters per visit. Truth in Recruitment’s goal is not to demonize the military but to inform prospective recruits of the other options at their disposal. “Near Vandenberg, I’ve heard the word ‘only’ a lot, as in this is their only option, but it’s not,” Connell said, adding that there are numerous college options in North County, plus many different organizations serving low-income families for whom career prospects may seem limited. —Richie DeMaria

Aims to Make His Mark

March 26-april 1

New Coach the Third in 34 Years for Gauchos

coach in NCAA Division 1 under dire circumstances. An assistant coach with the Cal Bears, he took the helm at the University of New Orleans (UNO) when the Privateers were still adrift from the impact of Hurricane Katrina. They had achieved some stability when he left after four years to join Sean Miller’s staff at the University of Arizona. Miller promoted Pasternack to associate head coach during a sixyear period in which the Wildcats reached a pair of Sweet 16s and a pair of Elite Eights in the NCAA tournament. Those were pretty good cards for him to show when he came to Santa Barbara looking to take charge of another program that is reeling a bit. It was a bold stroke for UCSB to make Pasternack just the third head coach of the Gaucho men’s team in the past 34 years. His predecessors, Jerry Pimm and Bob Williams, were both 45 when they came to Santa Barbara, and they settled into long and generally successful careers. Pimm’s teams filled the Thunderdome for epic games against UNLV and achieved UCSB’s only victory in the NCAA tournament. Williams had a 19-year run that included three NCAA

appearances and the most wins (313) of any UCSB men’s coach. The Gauchos averaged 17 victories a season before fading to 6-22 in 2016-17. There’s a burst of energy that comes with the hiring of Pasternack. He turns 40 on April 15 and is eager to make his mark. UCSB athletics director John McCutcheon listed the new coach’s attributes: “He was in the UC system at Cal; he has head coaching experience; he has recruiting ties in the West Coast; he was involved in game planning and on-floor coaching at Arizona.” For his part, Pasternack said in a statement that was released prior to his introductory press conference: “I am really excited for the opportunity to build a comprehensive program at UCSB. I expect us to be competing for Big West championships each year and developing student-athletes on and off the court.” Pasternack is a New Orleans native — a factor in his taking the UNO job after Katrina — and he attended the Indiana University, where he was a student manager on Bob Knight’s basketball staff. He headed west to Cal after graduating. Because of his youth, there’s always the possibility that UCSB will become a short-term steppingstone for Pasternak to move up to a major program.“If that happens, he’ll have done something special for us,” McCutcheon said. A five-year deal is in the works, the AD said.

creekside restaurant & bar Ready to Open


eaders Nick and Tabitha let me know that in the coming days, Creekside Restaurant & Bar will be opening at 4444 Hollister Avenue, the former home of Boondocks and the legendary Creekside Bar. I stopped by the other day and quickly realized that this is not just a new coat of paint. Creekside owner David Burkholder, who also owns The Neighborhood Corner Bar & Grill at 235 West Montecito Street, has extensively renovated the property. Creekside, which used to be a 21-and-over bar, is now a full restaurant and bar for people of all ages, and it’s very family-friendly. When fans of the Creekside come for a visit, the first thing they will notice is that things have been turned inside out. Among many upgrades, the space that used to contain a large indoor dance floor is now an outdoor dining area. Behind the restaurant is a huge space for private parties, one of the largest outdoor dining venues anywhere on the South Coast. Barbecue fans will rejoice. “What I have done is a Southern-barbecue-based menu with California influence,” says longtime area chef Kyle Jones. “We have the traditional stuff like the baked beans, coleslaw, and mac and cheese, then I’m bringing California influences like roasted Brussels sprouts and a watermelon feta salad. We were doing farm-fresh salads to appeal to what we think the Santa Barbara area wants. Then you have Southern things like smoked chicken wings with Alabama white sauce, jazz apple, and celery. We’re doing house-made sausage, smoked chicken, ribs, tri-tip, pulled pork, and we have vegetarian-based salads. You can get à la carte meats to go with your salad. We’re doing craft cocktails [by General Manager and Mixologist Richard Hollowell], wines by the glass, wines by the bottle, and we’re outsourcing local wineries like Brander and Ballard Lane. We’re trying to get a real, approachable feel, basically a smallerend, middle-end, and higher-tier wine selection. Quality is our focus all the way across the board.” BASIL’S COMING TO ANACAPA: A new res-

Reader Mary let me know that after eight years in business, Petros restaurant, inside Fess Parker Wine Country Inn at 2860 Grand Avenue in Los Olivos, closed last January and has now reopened as Petros Kafe at 487 Atterdag Road in Solvang, the former home of The Greenhouse Café. “Our menu is a combination of the best ingredients that Greece and California cuisine have to offer,” says owner and chef Petros Benekos.“We import olive oil, feta, honey, oregano, and wines from Greece, the freshest organic vegetables from our farms in Los Olivos, and wineries of our great state. Quality, simplicity, healthy and tasty food is the creation of that combination. Enjoy.” Hours are Sunday-Monday, 8 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; TuesdayThursday, 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m.10:30 p.m.; and Saturday, 8 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Call 686-5455 or visit SOJOURNER UPDATE: Last August, food news

First, the bad news: You no longer get a free token to hit balls at the adjacent batting cages when you order The Triple Play, a trio of your-choice tacos at East Beach Tacos on Milpas Street. The good news? The inventively crafted tacos are still some of the best in town, from the “Bánh Mì,” with pulled pork, cabbage, pickled daikon, jalapeño, and hoisin aioli, to the “Gangnam Style,” with Korean short rib, spicy chili vinegar, and green onion. Finish off the trio with one of the fish options, such as the tempura shrimp or the battered cod or the ahi poke, and wash it down with Cabotella Blonde Ale, a craft brew from Baja Brewing Company. With your stomach sated, work off the lunch by popping a couple of bucks down at the batting cage booth and taking a few dozen pitches in the cage. With a range of speeds and both hard balls and softballs available, it’s solid fun for all ages — both my 4-year-old daughter and sixty-something mom cracked away, after my 7-year-old and I tamed the higher speeds. Better yet? Spend an hour swinging, and go back for more tacos.

ConCert for trump era Camerata PaCifiCa Performs old and new works with PolitiCal overtones


dPhS Performs The Add AddAAm AmS fAmily fA It’s fair to say that when Charles Addams’s one-panel comic debuted in The New Yorker in 1938, no one would have imagined that nearly 80 years on the illustrator’s peculiar cast of characters would still hold a place in popular culture. Though no longer in the funny pages, the adventures of the Addams Family — which made the leap to television in the 1960s and hit the big screen in the 1990s — can still be seen onstage thanks to the award-winning The Addams Family. Since closing on Broadway in 2011, the musical comedy has made its way into theaters around the world, including Dos Pueblos High School’s Elings Auditorium, where it opens April 7. “This is a show that students were really excited about and brought to my attention,” said DP Theater Director Clark Sayre of how The Addams Family made the grade. “One huge criterion for choosing shows for a high school cast is that there are good ensemble opportunities … In addition to the great character songs you’d expect, there are terrific group numbers, as well, like ‘Death Is Just Around the Corner’ and ‘When You’re an Addams.’”

Among the cast are Nolan Montgomery, winner of the S.B. Teen Star 2017 vocal competition; Nicole Trujillo, a Teen Star 2017 finalist; and Sierra Kelly, whose work includes a starring role in a Cannes International Film Festival– accepted short film. Although a comedy, the play has poignant social and political pertinence. “The musical is very topically relevant to today’s current political climate — come expecting lots of current references,” Sayre said. “In this telling, the Addams live in a mansion in Central Park and welcome the Beinekes from the ‘swing state of Ohio.’ The challenge for the characters in the musical (and for the country as a whole) is to reconcile differences and come together … they often break the fourth wall and sing directly to the audience, which is always lots of fun.” The Addams Family runs April 7-8 and 21-22 at 7 p.m., and on April 8 and 22 at 2 p.m., at Elings Performing Arts Center (7266 Alameda Ave., Goleta).

The Head and the Heart has become increasingly popular on mainstream airwaves in recent years. You may have heard its melancholic “Rivers and Roads” on such TV shows as Chuck, Chuck How I Met Your Mother Mother, and New Girl Girl, or the capricious yet optimistic “Lost in My Mind” as the backing track for the trailer of the Jennifer Lawrence film Silver Linings Playbook. Active since 2009, The Head and the Heart is composed of multi-instrumentalists who are fueled by a passion to create music. The members met at Seattle’s Conor Byrne Pub, where bassist Chris Zasche was the bartender, and bonded over playing open-mic sets “over the course of six months or so,” said pianist Kenny Hensley in a recent interview with The Santa Barbara Independent. Based in Seattle, the band was influenced by the city’s rich musical history from the very start. “This band would have never existed if it weren’t for that,” said Hensley. “In Seattle, you can play an open mic and start drawing a crowd if you’re any good. People there respect the art and support it fully, and that is rare.” Despite having songs on numerous television and film soundtracks, the band didn’t form with commercial success in mind. “It was purely for the joy of creating something with other people who had similar musical minds,” Hensley said. Members of The Head and the Heart are keeping busy these days, on the road for their Signs of Light tour, which sees them playing Coachella April 15 and 22. Hensley credits other artists as a motivation to continue their pace. “We’ve done tours now with some of my favorite bands,” he said. “And there’s nothing better than watching a band you’ve loved since high school sound check every day.” The Head and the Heart performs Saturday, April 8, 8 p.m., at the Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.).

ARLO GUTHRIE Running Down The Road



The Running Down The Road Tour promises to be a flashback inducing, mind-expanding adventure, presenting the best of Guthrie’s material from 1969 forward.


LOVE AND LOSS: Leslie Gangl Howe, pictured with cast mate Elaine Arnett (right), portrays grieving mother Becca with intelligent humor and genuine warmth without losing the integrity of the character.

Rounding out the supporting cast is more unexpected the death, the more aberrant the experience will seem. The Theatre Shannon Saleh, Elaine Arnett, and Ryan Group at SBCC explores this theme in the Ostendorf. Saleh plays Becca’s pregnant final play of its 2016-2017 season: Rabbit sister, described by Laris as “funny, quirky, Hole, by David Lindsey-Abaire, is about a and pugnacious.” Arnett plays their mother, devastated couple’s jouranother woman ney forward after the who’s felt the grief accidental death of their of burying a child, young son. who tries to counsel Becca through her Rabbit Hole is a strong choice for the Theatre anguish.

EVOLVED CAVEMEN: On its most recent album, last year’s Otero War, Caveman introduced stately string sounds to its Brooklyn indie rock.

Spring Singing in Full Swing by Richie DeMaria OUT OF THE CAVES, INTO THE GOODLAND: Spring’s in full swing, which means the best months of S.B.’s music scene have begun again. From the Bowl to the bars, there’s an incredible influx of talent coming in town, some of them as a stopover between Coachella weekends. The Goodland Hotel (5650 Calle Real, Goleta) has launched a monthly concert series featuring emerging artists, and this month, music lovers can enjoy a Coachella away from home when Caveman visits the poolside courtyard on Wednesday, April 19. You may know the Brooklyn-born rock band from its cello-punctuated hit “The State of Mind,” a KCRW favorite that is about as serious and stately as radio indie rock gets, and they do it very well, with rather hopeful lyrics to soften the existential dread of your morning commute. Their tunes shall make for a lovely pairing with the bittersweet tang of $5 Goodland Grapefruit IPAs — the tasty result of a partnership with M.Special Brewing Company — and $3 brats off the grill. For those who won’t be making it out to the Palm Springs pools, you can enjoy a much more temperate version of the experience with a Coachella artist right in your backyard. Indie folk songstress Caroline Smith comes on May 10. DEAD MEN DO TELL TALES: Luis Muñoz, the award-winning S.B. jazz artist and producer known for his soothing compositions and expressive percussion, is back with a new album, The Dead Man. He will be celebrating the release of the new work at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Saturday, April 8, with special guest artist Téka, starting at 6 p.m. His new, largely improvised work, called a masterpiece by Sounds of Timeless Jazz, features a danse macabre of searing electric guitar and smooth trumpet, a music of mortality comparable to the vivifying flair of a New Orleans funeral march. It should be a show exciting enough to make corpses rise. AGENT ORANGE HELPS CARPINTERIA SKATE: Also that night at SOhO, the ultimate OC punk/surf power trio Agent Orange headlines the Carpinteria Skatepark Benefit Concert with pop-punkers The Grownups and ska shredders Skamikazie at 9:45 p.m. What better band than these punk pioneers, who brought a surf-rock influence to the scene, to help build a skate park for the good people of Carpinteria? It’s definitely going to rock. SPEAKING OF SURF: The sounds and songs of the sea will breeze gently into the Mercury Lounge (5871 Hollister Ave., Goleta) on Saturday, April 15, with the return of Golden Minstrels, a series featuring traveling surf musicians. Central Coast chanteuses Jeff Grimes, Parting Lines, and Zeb Zaitz will bring their beautiful beachy works to the always relaxing lounge with a delightful selection of beer and wine, starting at 8 p.m. SINGIN’ SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAIN MEN: The Coffis Brothers & the Mountain Men, a rootsy rock ’n’ roll band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains, will rock Seven Bar and Kitchen (224 Helena Ave.), also on April 15, at 8 p.m. Their new album, Wrong Side of the Road, finds them on the right side of rock, building on classic influences for a solid sound. With swaying, twanging riffs, and multipart harmonies, their songs have earned comparisons to early Neil Young, with a rustic vibe familiar to anyone fortunate to have spent time in the piney peaks above Santa Cruz. Lucky as we are to live in such a sumptuous city, Seven will of course offer you a sinfully good selecn tion of sandwiches and cocktails to pair with the music.

Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, a superlative duo known for pushing the envelope of folk, bluegrass and jazz, are joined in concert by folkpop singer Aoife O’Donovan, who is regularly featured on A Prairie Home Companion and known for her work on The Goat Rodeo Sessions.

The Selah Dance Collective, in conjunction with Nebula Dance Lab, presented Endgame, a contemporary dance showcase offering a broad range of reactions to art and politics: from choreographer Ashley McQueen’s “Plunge the Swamp,” a memorable commentary on At Center Trump’s tendency toward Stage Theater, Fri., Mar. 31. diarrhea of the mouth, to “Endgame,” choreographed by Selah’s founder, Meredith Cabaniss, a piece inspired by the Samuel Beckett play of the same name (as well as the 1913 Armory art show in New York City that shocked the art world with unfamiliar techniques of exhibiting the human form). Endgame explored a world in which representational movement flows in and out of expected meaning and paired concepts and moods with unconventional counterparts. Conceptually interesting but, by design, varyingly inaccessible, Endgame featured a variety of contemporary pieces by choreographers Cabaniss, McQueen, Taylor Fisher, and Wilson Vu. An ambitious collection of work

by talented dancers and choreographers, Endgame explored the balance between reality and societally constructed and perpetuated fictions. The concept of basing art on inspiration from other art suggests a captivating layering of concepts — Beckett’s Endgame is an absurdist view of the end of humanity — but such a broad creative stimulus left Endgame without blatant manifestation of theme. However, the conversation that Selah presented through this work is vital, and despite a consistent viewpoint, audiences learned that some art — especially art that is representational of a reaction to other art — can be a continuous conversation that constantly evolves with social perception. — Maggie Yates

A 12-Session Symposium: Human Resource Management for Small Businesses Session #1: April 13; 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management 4408 Cathedral Oaks Rd., Santa Barbara The Santa Barbara Human Resources Association (SBHRA) presents “HR Department of One,” a year-long symposium on a variety of topics critical to human resource professionals. This program is designed for solo HR Practitioner, Office Manager, Payroll Manager, Controller or other manager who has been tasked by the CEO or COO to “Become the HR person.” The HR Managers working on this project are or have been the Department of One, and learned it the hard way. They will be sharing their expertise with real-life examples, and how they solved HR issues, providing insight into problem-identification and how to interpret rules and regulations. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to those who complete the 12-session symposium. SBHRA is offering the program not only to its own members, but to the many small companies in the Tri-County area who either have such a person in place with no training on the ins and outs of HR Management, or have been thinking about adding those responsibilities to someone in the organization. Given the plethora of workplace regulations in California, this program can help employers stay out of trouble by understanding how to comply with the laws and avoid potential employee complaints or lawsuits. $25.00 registration fee covers costs of materials for all 12 sessions. Water and coffee will be provided. Sessions will be held on the second Thursday of each month, in a brown-bag lunch format. To register or for more information, visit; click on

Pizzarelli is a raconteur as well as a singer and a guitarist, and his longest story of the night served as an introduction to the second set, when he played four consecutive numbers written by Paul McCartney. Pizzarelli’s Midnight McCartney, an album that covers post-Beatles McCartney songs, was recorded at the suggestion of Sir Paul himself, and Pizzarelli is justifiably proud, not only of the ex-Beatle’s approval, but also of the great chemistry he has with this particular music. From there, the show went off in an Ellington direction, highlighted by a crisp, stylish take on “Satin Doll.” Two warm standing ovations were well earned by these Manhattan night birds. — Charles Donelan david bazemore

In the second half of the set, the band kept crowds engaged with the hand-clapping retro hit “When They Fight, They Fight.” Bouncy and bright single “Black Lemon” seemed tailor-made for Santa Barbara, transporting the crowd to a warm day on an Isla Vista balcony as the audience basked in the song’s infectious breeze. As the duo ushered in “Keep It Low,” with its fuzzy, enveloping beat, the energy levels in the room were anything but! If their impressive discography, performance prowess, and slew of fresh gems are any indicator, this is a band that will continue to “give us something we can sway to.” —Rebecca Horrigan

Generationals didn’t waste any time getting into their fresh material, opening the show with their instantly likeable new single, “Turning the Screw.” A shower of tasteful multicolored lights beamed down on the crowd, illuminating the joyful fans and creating a close and communal feel.

Black Belt Power


on’t be deceived by this thin volume of stories collected by Melodee Meyer, a fifth-degree black belt and co-owner of Santa Barbara’s Martial Arts Family Fitness. Many a slight martial artist is capable of delivering a powerful strike, and this collection likewise packs considerable inspiration. The stories in Black Belt Power: Inspirational Stories by Extraordinary Martial Art ists have universal application because the traits, habits, and attitudes common to accomplished martial artists are the same ones needed for achievement in other fields. The path to a black belt—or or learning to play a musical instrument, speak a foreign language, become a gourmet cook, or solve mathematical equations—is consistent, mindful prac-

tice over time. The martial arts just happen to be an excellent vehicle for developing mental focus, presence, resiliency, and the ability to act in the face of fear or stress. A common theme in these stories is how the practice of martial arts helped someone overcome a crisis — the death of a fiancée, an abusive partner, or debilitat debilitating social awkwardness. The confidence and personal agency gained through mastery of a dis discipline can be life-changing. An irony of martial arts practice is that the more skilled one becomes, the less inclined one is to seek out physical confrontation. Call it the paradox of the peaceful warrior. Meyer—black belt, author, teacher, and coach—embodies this paradox. — Brian Tanguay

Comedy Heist Film and Panel Discussion to Raise Awareness About Health Issue


INDEPENDENT Thusday, APRIL 6 - color

hat makes film a delightful (and essential) art form is its multipurpose capacity—it can, among other things, entertain, inspire, distract, enthrall, and enlighten; some movies achieve several of these things at once. For example, Going in Style, a comedy heist directed by Zach Braff (Garden State, Wish I Was Here), aims not only to charm but also to educate ROBBING RETIREES: Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin viewers about kidney disease, a serious star in Going in Style, about three pensioners who decide to rob their ailment that affects 26 million people in company’s bank. the U.S. each year.

Her deliberate imprisonment in the Beast’s (Dan Stevens) castle to save her 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. 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.

The Boss Baby (97 mins., PG) DreamWorks Animation called in the voice talents of Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, and Tobey Maguire for this story of a briefcase-toting, fast-talking secret agent baby who must bring down the CEO of Puppy Co., who is trying to steal all the world’s love. Fairview (2D)/Fiesta 5 (2D and 3D)

OGet 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. 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) Metro 4 Ghost in the Shell (120 mins., PG-13) In this film based on the Japanese manga of the same name, Scarlett Johansson stars as Major, a cyborg counterterrorist field commander tasked with thwarting cyber criminals and hackers. When she finds out the true reason behind her cyber enhancement, she stops at nothing to find out who stole her life. Arlington/Camino Real/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.

T2 Trainspoting 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—Kong never leaves his home island, which always offered the most allegorically interesting moments in the seven previous films. 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 closeups that leaves too little room to breathe. (TH) Paseo Nuevo

O Life

(103 mins., R)

In this boldly titled sci-fi thriller, an international team of astronauts welcomes a Martian life form aboard their space station — with horrifying results. Rarely since Ellen Ripley came faceto-face with a face hugger has an interstellar thriller achieved such palpable, visceral tension, with some scenes so gripping as to be almost tormenting. The cuddly alien, too, is quite beautifully designed and believably organic, also a rarity in the CGI days. While this, like many horror movies, slows in its final third, there’s enough unpredictable chaos to make it more exciting than your typical round of Hollywood carnage. (RD) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo


(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. (JF) Camino Real/Fiesta 5

Power Rangers (124 mins., PG-13) At its worst, Power Rangers is America’s anime. The franchise credits its inspiration from the prominent tokusatsu Japanese TV series Super Sentai, Sentai hallmarked by erratic bursts of color and special effects, live-action characters, and mixed martial arts. At it’s best, it’s a touching story of teenage misfits unleashing the power of teamwork, trust, and leadership to fight against evil. Young fans will revel in the film’s action-packed scenes and extraterrestrial robotic sets and weapons. And while some scenes may be too violent for younger kids, the heart of this film lies in its message that even the most unlikely friendships can lead to the greatest of teams when you embrace who you are, mistakes and all. The film tackles teenage issues such as self-harm, reckless driving, and sexting, proving that this action flick is more than what it’s marketed as. I was pleasantly surprised by the message of this film, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it unless you’re familiar with the franchise. (SM) Camino Real/Metro 4 Toni Erdmann (162 mins., R) In this German-Austrian, Academy Award–nominated film, a divorced father who likes to take on fake personas travels to Bucharest to visit his workaholic daughter, disguising himself as a life coach. Plaza de Oro T2 Trainspotting (117 mins., R) Trainspotting 2 is a story of when burnouts fade away. With all of the grit and grime of the first film, but hardly the style, it’s an interesting character study of what happened to some of ’90s cinema’s most iconic heroin heroes. It’s not to say it’s a bad film — in fact it’s slightly compelling on some levels — but it’s hardly the generation-defining cultural behemoth of the original, which created a perfect (if bro-ish) encapsulation of hedonism, despair, philosophy, and hope, soundtracked by Underworld and Lou Reed. Mostly violent and brutish, the merely decent decent Trainspotting  Trainspotting 2 is about finding meaning after the party’s over, when you’re a bruised shadow of your lively former self.

APrIl 6, 2017



a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of apRil 6 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Be interested in first things, Aries. Cultivate your attraction to beginnings. Align yourself with uprisings and breakthroughs. Find out what’s about to hatch, and lend your support. Give your generous attention to potent innocence and novel sources of light. Marvel at people who are rediscovering the sparks that animated them when they first came into their power. Fantasize about being a curious seeker who is devoted to reinventing yourself over and over again. Gravitate toward influences that draw their vitality directly from primal wellsprings. Be excited about first things.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Are you weary of lugging around decayed guilt and regret? Is it increasingly difficult to keep forbidden feelings concealed? Have your friends been wondering about the whip marks from your selfflagellation sessions? Do you ache for redemption? If you answered yes to any of those questions, listen up. The empathetic and earthy saints of the Confession Catharsis Corps are ready to receive your blubbering disclosures. They are clairvoyant, they’re nonjudgmental, and best of all, they’re free. Within seconds after you telepathically communicate with our earthy saints, they will psychically beam you 11 minutes of unconditional love, no strings attached. Do it! You’ll be amazed at how much lighter and smarter you feel. Transmit your sad stories to the Confession Catharsis Corps NOW!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Now is an excellent time to FREE YOUR MEMORIES. What comes to mind when I suggest that? Here are my thoughts on the subject. To FREE YOUR MEMORIES, you could change the way you talk and feel about your past. Re-examine your assumptions about your old stories, and dream up fresh interpretations to explain how and why they happened. Here’s another way to FREE YOUR MEMORIES: If you’re holding on to an insult someone hurled at you once upon a time, let it go. In fact, declare a general amnesty for everyone who ever did you wrong. By the way, the coming weeks will also be a

favorable phase to FREE YOURSELF OF MEMORIES that hold you back. Are there any tales you tell yourself about the past that undermine your dreams about the future? Stop telling yourself those tales.

them with disciplined devotion. Be selfish in your rapt determination to serve your clearest and noblest and holiest agendas.


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I hope that by mid-May you will be qualified to teach a workshop called “Sweet Secrets of Tender Intimacy” or “Dirty Secrets of Raw Intimacy” or maybe even “Sweet and Dirty Secrets of Raw and Tender Intimacy.” In other words, Libra, I suspect that you will be adding substantially to your understanding of the art of togetherness. Along the way, you may also have experiences that would enable you to write an essay titled “How to Act Like You Have Nothing to Lose When You Have Everything to Gain.”

(June 21-July 22): How big is your vocabulary? Twenty thousand words? Thirty thousand? Whatever size it is, the coming weeks will be prime time to expand it. Life will be conspiring to enhance your creative use of language … to deepen your enjoyment of the verbal flow … to help you become more articulate in rendering the mysterious feelings and complex thoughts that rumble around inside you. If you pay attention to the signals coming from your unconscious mind, you will be shown how to speak and write more effectively. You may not turn into a silver-tongued persuader, but you could become a more eloquent spokesperson for your own interests.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): We all need more breaks from the routine — more holidays, more vacations, more days off from work. We should all play and dance and sing more, and guiltlessly practice the arts of leisure and relaxation, and celebrate freedom in regular boisterous rituals. And I’m nominating you to show us the way in the coming weeks, Leo. Be a cheerleader who exemplifies how it’s done. Be a ringleader who springs all of us inmates out of our mental prisons. Be the imaginative escape artist who demonstrates how to relieve tension and lose inhibitions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): People in your vicinity may be preoccupied with trivial questions. What’s more nutritious, corn chips or potato chips? Could Godzilla kick King Kong’s ass? Is it harder to hop forward on one foot or backward with both feet? I suspect you will also encounter folks who are embroiled in meaningless decisions and petty emotions. So how should you navigate your way through this energy-draining muddle? Here’s my advice: Identify the issues that are most worthy of your attention. Stay focused on


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you have a dream of eating soup with a fork, it might mean that in your waking life you’re using the wrong approach to getting nourished. If you have a dream of entering through an exit, it might mean that in your waking life you’re trying to start at the end rather than the beginning. And if you dream of singing nursery rhymes at a karaoke bar with unlikable people from high school, it might mean that in your waking life you should seek more fulfilling ways to express your wild side and your creative energies. (P.S. You’ll be wise to do these things even if you don’t have the dreams I described.)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you’re a Quixotic lover, you’re more in love with love itself than with any person. If you’re a Cryptic lover, the best way to stay in love with a particular partner is to keep him or her guessing. If you’re a Harlequin, your steady lover must provide as much variety as three lovers. If you’re a Buddy, your specialties are having friendly sex and having sex with friends. If you’re a Histrionic, you’re addicted to confounding, disorienting love. It’s also possible that you’re none of the above. I hope so, because now is an excellent time to have a beginner’s mind about what kind of love you really need and want to cultivate in the future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your new vocabulary word is “adytum.” It refers to the most sacred place within a sacred place — the inner shrine at the heart of a sublime sanctuary. Is there such a spot in your world? A location that embodies all you hold precious about your journey on planet Earth? It might be in a church or temple or synagogue or mosque, or it could be a magic zone in nature or a corner of your bedroom. Here you feel an intimate connection with the divine, or a sense of awe and reverence for the privilege of being alive. If you don’t have a personal adytum, Capricorn, find or create one. You need the refreshment that comes from dwelling in the midst of the numinous.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You could defy gravity a little, but not a lot. You can’t move a mountain, but you may be able to budge a hill. Luck won’t miraculously enable you to win a contest, but it might help you seize a hardearned perk or privilege. A bit of voraciousness may be good for your soul, but a big blast of greed would be bad for both your soul and your ego. Being savvy and feisty will energize your collaborators and attract new allies; being a smart-ass show-off would alienate and repel people.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Here are activities that will be especially favorable for you to initiate in the near future: (1) Pay someone to perform a service for you that will ease your suffering. (2) Question one of your fixed opinions if that will lead to you receiving a fun invitation you wouldn’t get otherwise. (3) Dole out sincere praise or practical help to a person who could help you overcome one of your limitations. (4) Get clear about how one of your collaborations would need to change in order to serve both of you better. Then tell your collaborator about the proposed improvement with lighthearted compassion.

legals aDmINISteR of eState NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: EDWARD W. SMITH, also known as EDWARD WILLIAM SMITH NO: 17PR00118 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both of EDWARD W. SMITH, also known as EDWARD WILLIAM SMITH A PETITION FOR PROBATE: has been filed by: KIMBERLY LARSEN in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara THE PETITION for probate requests that (name): KIMBERLY LARSEN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The Independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: on 05/04/2017 AT 9:00 a.m. Dept: FIVE SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA, located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Anacapa Division. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.
