Samantha Bean likes working without a net, whether she’s entwined in aerial silks, cooking without a recipe, or reporting on any manner of public meeting. Our news intern has put in the time to cover a rally against dirty oil, mix with evangelical Christians on climate change, and spend interminable hours with Isla Vista’s new government, all to “inform and educate our community on current events and initiate discussions about local politics,” she said. We’d say she’s succeeded, and we’re sure success will follow her when she heads to New York City for her next internship, this time with PEN America. Happy trails, Sam!

NEWS of the WEEK pau l wellm an

photo of the week

news Briefs law & disorder On 4/18, Judge Thomas Anderle ruled that a lawsuit filed over the death of UCSB student Sierra Markee-Winkler can proceed. Siobhan Markee and Lon Winkler initiated the lawsuit in May 2015 after their daughter fell to her death from the cliffs of Sea Lookout Park in Isla Vista the year before. The suit named the county, the state, and other defendants, and it alleged a lack of safety measures and that the importation of sand had contributed to cliff erosion. Anderle dismissed the defendants’ arguments that Markee-Winkler had fallen somewhere else or that the defendants had no responsibility for the park’s natural hazards. He ordered the case to mediation.

Santa BarBara MarcheS for Science For Santa Barbara’s March for Science on Saturday, thousands crowded into De la Guerra Plaza, the surrounding street and sidewalks, and even up the stairways of the buildings facing the grassy oval before making their way up and down State Street. Protesters expressed frustration with the Trump administration’s climatechange denial as well as its threats to research funding and scientific freedom. But they were also there for constructive reasons: to show solidarity, make their voices heard, and find a way forward. The crowd, which police estimated at 5,000, was relaxed and upbeat, laughing at political jokes and answering science trivia questions posed by emcee Susan Epstein. Signs showcasedSTEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) humor

(“Alternative Facts = √-1”), topical references (“Fund Science Not Walls!”), and some more whimsical approaches (“We are your canaries and we are freaking out!”). Alex Dorsett, a physics graduate student at UCSB, was there with his dog Leela, who wore a sign declaring, “Dogs fur Science.” “Being in a STEM field, it’s important to show my support,” he said. “I’d feel bad taking funding and not standing up for other [scientists’] right to funding.” Speakers included State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, who recently introduced Senate Bill 51, the Whistleblower and Data Protection Act, which Santa Barbara march organizers Jorie Mitchell and Hannah Armer wanted the event to support. “Did you ever imagine in your wildest dreams that you would have to be marching —Talya Meyers for science?” asked Jackson.


hotchkiss hops into Mayoral race The Republican Currently Stands Alone Against Two Democrats


more crowded and a lot more interesting with Santa Barbara City Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss announcing his candidacy this Saturday to a few dozen supporters gathered on the outside patio of Chuck’s Waterfront Grill. Hotchkiss, by margins the most conservative member of the left-leaning council, challenges Democrats Cathy Murillo and Hal Conklin for the center seat on the dais. “This isn’t going to be an easy climb,” warned Hotchkiss, now serving his second term on the council and terming out this year. “We have a powerful political machine opposing us.” But, he continued, that same machine opposed him four and eight years ago, and he beat it both times.“So guess what we’re going to do this year? We’re going to win again!” With characteristically direct delivery, Hotchkiss rattled off his accomplishments on the council: He took credit for increasing the number of cruise ships visiting Santa Barbara from two in 2009 to 29 this year.“No

other candidate for the office of mayor can boast of this.” And he highlighted how the police force has grown by 16 positions in that time. “Some people call me the law-and-order candidate. Well, I’m happy with that.” Hotchkiss also talked about opposing the installation of parking meters in the downtown historic district, removing RVs from Cabrillo Boulevard, Frank Hotchkiss and rallying support for the State Street Christmas tree when Edison threatened to pull the plug.“We saved Christmas!” Looking ahead, Hotchkiss said the city should upgrade its police station, support efforts to curb bad behavior by homeless “who now act as if they own our streets and parks,” and mend its aging infrastructure. Though that would mean new sources of revenue, Hotchkiss was clear none of it should be levied on voters without their personal approval—a clear reference to the sales-tax-

increase measure that will likely appear on the November ballot—and it should be carefully controlled so the funds go toward their intended purpose, “not some errant project that favors political favorites.” Hotchkiss also promised to provide more off-street parking and forever put to bed any hope for rent control. “And we’re not going to pour huge amounts of water meant for Santa Barbara from Lake Cachuma into the ocean in the unlikely prospect of saving a few fish.” Hotchkiss ended by issuing a stern message to anyone who might consider Santa Barbara a “sanctuary city” that protects its undocumented residents from enhanced federal immigration policies.“We are a nation of laws, not a haven for people whose first act is to break those laws,” he said.“Santa Barbara is a sanctuary for people who want to work hard to achieve their hopes and dreams legally.” n pau l well m a n fi le p hoto

The jury trial began last week for Aubrey Wadford, arrested in October 2014 for allegedly murdering former girlfriend Angela Laskey in her apartment while their baby daughter slept in the next room. Jurors heard from neighbors who described loud, constant arguing between Wadford and Laskey in the months leading up to her death. First-responding police officers gave testimony about the bloody scene in the apartment and their attempts to revive Laskey — who’d been stabbed multiple times in the neck — with CPR. They also talked about how they made sure her daughter did not see the murder scene as they waited for Child Protective Services to arrive. The trial is expected to last through May.

county When rates nearly doubled in Santa Maria’s Laguna County Sanitation District, the Grand Jury got involved to investigate why. The district has operated sewer and wastewater treatment since 1959, and its equipment has been replaced in bits and pieces over the years. “The state and feds used to give grants to upgrade plants,” said district manager Marty Wilder. “Now we have to find low-interest loans.” Regulatory changes and simple age have hit critical mass for the plant, and the Grand Jury concluded the increased rates were justified to help fund the needed modernization. Phase I of the upgrade project should arrive before the Board of Supervisors in the fall. The small Ellwood electricity plant currently fires up when South County faces rolling blackouts during times of peak usage. It had been proposed as a supplemental power source for a larger Southern California area, as well as emergency power if Santa Barbara’s transmission towers fell during a natural disaster. In a tersely worded proposed decision, Administrative Law Judge Regina DeAngelis set up each argument in favor of keeping the Ellwood peaker plant and then knocked them all down. The plant is too small to be suitable, she wrote, and perhaps most damning, that it is a “highly polluting resource permitted to emit as much as 103.59 pounds per hour of nitrogen oxide — which is over 20 times the normal emission rate of a modern peaking unit with modern emission controls.” cont’d on page 10 É

By contract, the raise will also go to classified staff and, by tradition, to management, as well.

Fourteen months before the 2018 primary election, Morro Bay’s Michael Erin Woody, a Republican, filed papers to challenge Rep. Salud Carbajal in the race for the 24th District, which spans Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, and includes a slice of Ventura. Woody, who appears to be an engineer and the owner of Struct One Engineering & Construction, filed a Statement of Candidacy on 4/20. He has not officially started fundraising. In the first three months of this year, however, Carbajal raised a whopping $563,000 and spent $73,000, according to campaign finance filings. He has $547,000 on hand.

Superior Court Judge Pauline Maxwell sided with the Santa Barbara Unified School District as the Goleta Water District (GWD) sought to deny water service to proposed senior-care housing on school district land — known as Granny’s Field or the Tatum property — near Turnpike and Hollister. Parched by five consecutive years of historic drought, GWD complained in court last fall; Max-

well ruled last week that the school district has water rights. The facility could feature upward of 180 units of independent living and a yet-to-bedetermined number of assisted-living beds, plus memory care. The Towbes Group is the developer, and depending on the size of the facility, the land lease could bring roughly $1 million annually to the school district’s general fund. Twenty-nine part-time Santa Barbara Unified School District employees — mostly secretaries, teaching assistants, and curriculum specialists — have been “impacted by the current budget,” according to Assistant Superintendent Mitch Torina. The Board of Education approved the layoffs Tuesday evening. The laid-off employees could be brought back if and when the budget sees better days, Torina added.

environment Phillips 66 oil train opponents cheered when the oil company missed the deadline to file opposition to the project denial by the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors, but a lawsuit in Superior Court lingers. Phillips had until 4/16 to oppose S.L.O.’s rejection to California’s Coastal Commission, whose staff, however, had written in support of the project denial. S.L.O. Superior Court Judge Barry LaBarbera had already told Phillips it needed to exhaust its administrative remedies before suing the county in court — the Coastal Commission being such an administrative body — so it remains to be seen whether the lawsuit, based on a lack of timeliness by the county in finding environmentally sensitive habitat on the n project grounds, will go forward.

discovery of a technical but critical miscalculation about the location of a key boundary line has blown up in the faces of county solid waste planners who’ve spent 15 years trying to expand the shelf life of the county’s Tajiguas Landfill by building a new complex of three separate recycling operations. This mistake initially came to light two months ago as county administrators prepared the paperwork to seek financing for the $110 million construction project. They discovered that the state’s Coastal Zone Boundary line intruded 173 yards farther inland than county solid waste planners believed. In the short-term, that renders permits null and void. What that means in the long term remains a matter of intense conjecture, but Ed Easton of the Gaviota Coast Conservancy declared the project “dead in the water.” The Conservancy has opposed any efforts to prolong the life of Tajiguas, arguing to do so further industrializes the coast and violates a supervisors’ vote in 1999 to that effect. At the very least, however, this discovery has brought to a screeching halt county efforts to apply for financing. Under state law, the California Coastal Commission has jurisdiction for any development within the state’s coastal zone. County administrators state

Scores of Sea creatures Sickened


ince the beginning of April, Julia Parker has seen 216 sick pelagic birds come into the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network. There were only four in February, and three in March. A large number of those 216, mostly loons, grebes, and murres, displayed neurological symptoms, including confusion, lethargy, and decreased response to stimuli. Many more have been found dead on nearby beaches. Meanwhile, the Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute (CIMWI) “started getting inundated with calls—100 calls per day” reporting sick and dead sea lions, some of them convulsing with seizures and foaming at the mouth, said CIMWI veterinarian Sam Dover. Rescue agencies, research laboratories, and wildlife centers are still compiling data and performing tests, but there’s a likely culprit: domoic acid, a toxin produced by algae called Pseudo-nitzschia. “The reports that I’m hearing are from Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, and Orange Counties — nothing north of Point Conception,” said Lena Chang, a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. But Pseudo-nitzschia tends to work its way up the coast, as Southern California waters grow too warm for healthy blooms. Raphael Kudela, a professor of Ocean Sciences at UC Santa Cruz, tests domoic acid levels in Monterey Bay. The newest samples, reported on Friday, had

Pseudo-nitzschia doesn’t automatically produce domoic acid. While researchers don’t understand all the factors involved, evidence suggests that if healthy blooms are stressed — by conditions like excess carbon dioxide, too much copper, or not enough iron — they will begin to produce toxins. Some researchers think that climate-changecaused ocean warming and acidification could be contributing to the problem. There are repercussions for humans, as well.

Supervisors Williams, Lavagnino Make Unlikely Allies in Drafting Pot Ordinance


by Kelsey Brugger

Das Williams was elected 1st District county supervisor last November, conservatives grumbled. Even people who agreed with him expected him to polarize the board, given his reputation as a grandstanding progressive. But now, Williams and County Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, a classical conservative from Santa Maria, have become strange bedfellows. What’s brought them together is pot. “We’re seeing eye to eye almost all the time,” Williams said. He admitted he was “a little surprised.”“What we share in common is we both work in the real world.” The idea that Williams and Lavagnino would get along so well would have been highly unlikely three years ago. Williams had zealously launched a campaign known as Measure P to halt fracking (and other unconventional oil drilling) in Santa Barbara County. Lavagnino was one of the first to oppose it, arguing fracking was not even occurring in the county. Voters shot it down. The only district where the measure passed was the one Williams now represents — spanning Montecito, Carpinteria, and the City of Santa Barbara. It’s where some of the richest and most liberal residents in Santa Barbara County live. In contrast, Lavagnino represents a farming community in the Santa Maria area that leans Republican. But everyone from those in the Carpinteria greenhouses to the Santa Maria fields wants to get into pot. Williams and Lavagnino have been holding regular private meetings to draft an ordinance that will regulate how much weed can be grown in the county. This includes land-use permits, zoning licenses, and taxes (which eventually must be passed by voters). They also must decide on how many of the county’s 700,000 acres of ag land they’ll allow cannabis to be grown. They have a long way to go. Growers have complained they are moving at a snail’s pace. Counties such as Monterey, Santa Cruz, and Sonoma are all ahead of Santa Barbara. And growers need the county’s authorization before they can get in line for state permits. That process opens next January. hen

“We are moving as fast we can,” Lavagnino told a packed room of growers and some marijuana critics on Tuesday. “The reality is we are not going to be ready by January 1.” For starters, he said, it would cost $1 million to hold a special election to approve the taxes. “I didn’t think it was a wise decision,” he said. The tax will be on the ballot in June 2018. Second, the results of the environmental impact report (EIR) won’t be ready “bestcase scenario” until next February. (The county supervisors will decide in June what firm to hire to complete the EIR, according to county spokesperson Gina DePinto.) Few complained on Tuesday about odors, particularly in Carpinteria Valley, where there are an estimated 340 acres of greenhouses. Barbara Kloos—an opponent of Proposition 64, the law legalizing recreational marijuana—emphasized the drug’s societal impact, particularly when the plants are grown a short distance from schools.“Six hundred feet really isn’t going to do much,” she said. “I didn’t move into an ag area.” While weed cultivation will be prohibited in neighborhoods zoned residential, Williams explained, it would be allowed in places that might feel residential but are technically zoned agriculture. To manage odors, he referenced a $1,500 device—the Nasal Ranger—that looks like a periscope you would attach to your nose. It could be used to determine whether or not the smells violate odor laws. But Carpinteria growers argued most agriculture — save for roses — stinks. And the flower industry has been so financially strapped as cheaper flowers are imported from Colombia. And the only way to preserve the open space throughout the valley, proponents said, is to allow them to grow pot. They just cautioned that too steep a levy on taxes would be bad for competition throughout California. Tax measures are one of the elements Williams and Lavagnino still must figure out—and agree on—before they go to the Board of Supervisors and then to voters for approval. And given the politically charged nature of taxes, that could end the honeymoon. n

Damnable Dog

NO SMOKING LOOFAH: Geographically, Santa Barbara juts out more aggressively

westward than any place along California’s infamous Left Coast. Even so, S.B. still manages to be the Center of the Universe. It’s uncanny. The most recent case involves Sean Hannity, the turgidly tumescent stuffed suit who now hovers as heir apparent to the Fox News throne forcibly vacated by news commentator Bill O’Reilly in the wake of his escalating sexual harassment scandals. Most of us have long forgotten — or perhaps never knew — that Hannity got his start as a 27-year-old right-wing radio shock jock in the politically correct, lefty-wanker badlands of Isla Vista. For about a year — in 1989 — Hannity produced an incendiary and offensive talk show for KCSB called The Pursuit of Happiness. The marriage between Hannity and KCSB was, to say the least, never a happy one. The powers that be at the station yanked Hannity’s show after he and one of his guests — a so-called AIDS expert — blamed the AIDS epidemic then devouring America on the socalled fact that gay people were disgusting, ate fecal matter, and engaged in disgusting practices. When another KCSB talk show host called in to object, Hannity pointed out she was a lesbian mother. His guest suggested her child was conceived with a turkey baster. Hannity said he felt sorry for her son. It went like that. It’s no stretch to say that this act of censorship by KCSB helped Hannity immeasurably.



Hannity cried foul. The local ACLU took up his cause, a fact he conspicuously omits in the retelling of his political victimization. According to Stuart Holden, the attorney who represented Hannity, the case was a “slam dunk.” Holden noted the termination letter the station issued was “less than artful.” Station mangers did themselves no favors, commenting at the time that they would have considered their action censorship if a government agency did what they did. As Holden made clear, that’s exactly what they, in fact, were; KCSB, after all, was an extension of the UC system, which in turn was an extension of the State of California. The controversy helped propel Hannity to the national stage as a truth-telling, rightwing Cassandra, forever bemoaning cultural depravity of the left and all the other “liberal fascists” tearing American down. Were it not for KCSB pulling Hannity’s plug, he might have wound up just another loud-mouthed cranky conservative looking for vulnerable ears to bend. But Hannity shrewdly seized upon his exile from KCSB’s airwaves. He billed himself as “the most talked about college radio host in America.” The rest, as they say, is history. Today — if the New York Times is to be believed — Hannity ranks as one of 20 luminaries outside the insular orbit of the White House who regularly converse with President Donald Trump, providing him support, advice, and loyal friendship. From the swamps of Isla Vista to the president’s ear



— that’s quite a journey. That doesn’t qualify as six degrees of separation; it’s barely even one. Hannity took vehement issue with the New York Times, angrily denying that he is Trump’s fawning lapdog — or any kind of lapdog — as was described in the cover-page article in last Sunday’s Times. Hannity’s protests of journalistic integrity have been obscured, however, by his more urgent denials that he ever engaged in anything remotely resembling sexual harassment. For the record, his accuser — a kooky, right-wing Islamophobe named Debbie Schlussel — has shifted her account. Although she insists Hannity twice invited her to his hotel room sometime in the early 2000s — and then retaliated against her professionally when she declined — such behavior was merely “weird and creepy,” she said, and did not rise to the level of sexual harassment. I don’t pretend to know what Hannity did or did not do. Just because so many alpha males at Fox News have been implicated in predatory behavior does not mean Hannity did, too. Unlike O’Reilly — whose alleged victims were paid $13 million to make complaints go away — there are no civil filings nor cash settlements with Hannity. With O’Reilly, there is the famous tape-recorded phone conversation with one of his producers, Andrea Mackris, in which he orgasmically describes how he’d like to get in the shower with her and rub various parts of her body with his loofah. O’Reilly got himself so lathered up that he referred to the imaginary loofah as a “falafel.” Shortly after, he brought himself

to audible climax. For Hannity, there is no “smoking falafel” tape. He has, for the record, emphatically denied any of the allegations and is threatening to sue. Hannity, as always the ever-aggrieved victim of political correctitude, seeks to portray the allegations against him as part of the “liberal fascist” plot to bring down the Fox News empire and him with it. Given the actual facts of this case, that dog just won’t hunt. That’s because there’s nothing the least bit politically correct or remotely liberal about Schlussel. For example, when American Special Forces assassinated Osama bin Laden, her posted comment was, “One down, 1.8 billion to go,” the latter figure being to the number of Muslims in the world. When it was announced former president Jimmy Carter had been diagnosed with cancer, she quipped, “A cancer has cancer,” adding,“Oops, I mean, Jimmy Carter has cancer. Same diff.” Likewise, Schlussel insisted then-president Barack Obama was Muslim because his middle name is Hussein. If such facts don’t fit Hannity’s preconceived narrative, it won’t be the first time. Every time a new Hannity book comes out, his old attorney Stuart Holden checks the index. To the extent the ACLU is mentioned at all, it’s always scathingly negative. Never does Hannity acknowledge that the organization — paragon of liberal fascism that it is — came to his defense. In fact, Holden and the ACLU got Hannity his radio show back at KCSB. He —NickWelsh chose not to take it.

transforming the Garland outrage into a campaign issue. Actuarial amusements. Now, Republicans swiftly have restored a 5-to-4 conservative tilt to the court and set up Gorsuch to shape legal precedents for the next 40 years. By tossing the filibuster rule, which previously required 60 Senators to agree to an up-or-down vote on a nominee, they also have set the table for Trump to put an emphatic right-wing stamp on the high court, if and when any of its three cou rtesy


t one point, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch posed a sardonic and spurious question during the Senate’s confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. “One of my Democratic colleagues said that it’s important to know whether you are a surrogate for President Trump or for particular interest groups,” began Hatch, for decades a reliable right-wing Senate voice and vote. “Are you?” “No,” Gorsuch answered. “Of course not,” the Senator replied. To the surprise of no one, Hatch was chuckling as he said it. As every schoolchild knows by now, the fix was in for Gorsuch when that exchange unfurled last month. By then, Republican leaders had decided to ram through his confirmation by abolishing the historic Senate rule that previously allowed filibusters of Supreme Court nominations; the GOP’s power move meant that minority Democrats had absolutely no say over Gorsuch — and that they will have precisely that much influence over any future nominations that occur during the reign of President Hair Boy. For the (all rise) 46 percent 45th president, the ascension of the telegenic, 49-year-old conservative federal judge to the Supreme Court marked a rare, unalloyed personal and political triumph, amid the unsettling Keystone Kops chaos that marked much of Trump’s first 100 days. It’s far more than that, however. At a time when the nation is bitterly and ideologically polarized over countless cultural and constitutional issues—from abortion rights, environmental law, and health care to immigration, political corruption, and voting rights — conservatives now hold hegemonic control over all three branches of the federal government. The confirmation of Gorsuch capped a yearlong struggle over the Supreme Court seat left vacant when Associate Justice Antonin Scalia unexpectedly died in early 2016. Led by the caecilian Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Senate Republicans took a big political gamble by refusing even to consider President Obama’s nomination of centrist federal judge Merrick Garland, absurdly arguing that only the president inaugurated in 2017 had the right to fill Scalia’s seat. Apparently inspired by Hillary Clinton’s Flight-of-the-Hindenburg presidential race, Democrats failed utterly in

Even more importantly, Gorsuch is just the start of an extraordinary opportunity Trump now holds to remake the federal judiciary system to his idiosyncratic likings. Among the U.S. government’s 840 appointive, lifetime judgeships, a rare combination of vacant seats and aging jurists is expected to hand him authority to appoint nearly 40 percent of the federal judiciary, according to a New York Times analysis. Beyond the nine Supreme Court seats, the hundreds of lower court judgeships in many ways are more important: About 85 percent of federal cases are decided at the district level; of the much smaller number that make it to the Court of Appeals, only a very few ever land before SCOTUS. “Mr. Trump could soon find himself responsible for appointing a greater share of federal court judges than any first-term president in 40 years,” the newspaper reported. As with the Supreme Court, all of Trump’s lower court nominees would need only a majority vote. It must be recalled that Democrats erased the 60-vote standard for district and appellate justices in 2013, when they ran the joint and Obama was in charge. — Jerry Roberts Payback’s a bitch.

Margaret Marini Griffin 07/01/45-04/05/17

Her irresistible positive attitude never left. Yes, you know who she was. The woman who drove around Santa Barbara in a 1965 Bahama Blue (light green) Bug from her university and college days. It was her first and last car. She tooled around town with husband and dogs in tow. She was Santa Barbara High School’s Betty Crocker homemaker of the year 1963, my, how things change. She lived up to the distinction hosting Thanksgivings, Christmases, Easters and a couple of weddings at her home sometimes with 40 guests or more and preparing everything from soup to nuts herself, well… she used her boys and husband as scullery maids. Her home was the go to hangout for her sons and their friends. Dearly loved by her students greeting her on the streets of Santa Barbara, who she sometimes pretended to recognize, but they sure knew her. They remember mummifying chickens as though they were pharaohs from her Egyptology lessons, and they remember negotiating with their check books in micro society. Her 5th and 6th graders, her favorite ages, could be sweetly sassy and she loved their challenges. Former students bathed her at Cottage Hospital, talk about role reversal. After 25 years of teaching she returned to the classroom and for years with her engineer brother, Ed, formed groups of students in engineering contests using straws, tennis balls and tooth pick bridges. Married July 19, 1969, she and Tom, from the Pierpont Inn, watched Neil Armstrong join them on the moon the next morning after a final raucous gathering the prior night with the wedding party who got the maid of honor, Elaine, drunk at Chuck’s, and squeezing out of her where they were staying the first night. Give and take guided them through 47 years of marriage but everyone knew who was in charge. The family expresses their affection and appreciation for the Sansum staff, Cottage Healthcare givers and UCLA experts and facili16


ties for easing her into her next life after attending the Santa Barbara Mission as a child parishioner, bride (father Virgil presiding), and as a mother and grandmother. She, her children and granddaughters were born at Cottage Hospital. Her grandsons were born in Houston. Her trade mark smile in death, as in life, and seeing the good in everyone, were her most memorable gifts to us. “Mammy” was incredible. As much as she wanted to stay she left us with that smile on her face until the last moments, with her men Tom, Matt, Cullen, and her brother Ed taking turns holding her hand in those final hours at the UCLA Ronald Regan Medical Center. Margaret was predeceased by Angelo (Babe) Marini and Amelia Varni Marini. Margaret is survived by her husband, Tom, sons Matt (Jennifer) and Cullen (Phoebe), grandchildren Amelia and Harlyn, Thor and Titus, her brother Ed Marini (Karen), nieces and nephew. And extended family. She was a wonderful woman and will be deeply missed. Services will be held at the Santa Barbara Mission on Friday, May 5th at 11:00 a.m. A celebration of her life will be held at the Griffin residence, May 6th at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Sansum Clinic Endocrinology Dept., P.O.

Jacqueline Hyde 02/01/22-03/29/17

Jacqueline Hyde, 95, passed away peacefully March 29, 2017 in Santa Barbara. She was born on Feb. 1, 1922. At the age of 16, she was swept off her feet by the love of her life Joseph Hyde. They were married in Las Vegas in 1940. After the war, they settled in Los Angeles and began raising a family. They moved to Santa Barbara in 1962 where they developed several student housing projects in Isla Vista. Jackie was always vivacious and fun loving with a wonderful sense of humor. She loved social gatherings with family and friends especially at Christmas time when she would make hand knitted blankets

David McLeod Brainard 08/03/55-03/23/17

Surfer. Actor. Cyclist. Writer. Teacher. Ironman. Bartender. Realtor. Warrior. Santa Barbara recently lost a mountain of a man who amassed quite a following across a broad spectrum. David presided over thousands of Board Meetings at Hammonds, Rincon, Mesa Lane and most other local spots. David also frequented the Islands. He performed over 70 plays at our Ensemble and Garvin Theaters, at off-off-Broadway and in Hilton Head. He landed roles in a host of TV shows like Chicago Hope, Sex and the City, The Sopranos and Hawaii Five O. He had numerous indie film starring roles, as well as several at UCSB and City College. David was the fortunate recipient of two Indy Acting Awards. He was an avid cyclist who knew the Santa Barbara back country as well as most. In the early years, he picked up a couple “Stump Jump” trophies for winning mountain biking races. David published a semi-autobiographical book called "The Ides of August" and was a persistent contributor to the Independent, the Montecito Journal, and the News Press. David successfully taught at the El Puente School for alternative students. He would drive around town and the locals would yell "Yo, Mr. Brainard, what's up." He competed in THE Ironman and finished in the top 10% of the entrants. David was also a famous bartender at Arnoldi's, Zelo and Blue Agave. He spent some time as a realtor and was a

proud member of the Rental Housing Mediation Task Force Key saviors in David’s cardiac struggles were Santa Barbara’s Dr. Bruce McFadden, UCLA’s Drs. Murray Kwon, Mario Deng, Arnold Baas, Gene DePasquale and Daniel Cruz. David passed away after three years of valiantly battling the cruel stroke suffered after receiving a heart transplant on his 58th birthday. He has joined his parents, Chris and John, in heaven. He is survived by a bunch of Brainards: his siblings Michael, Melanie and Alison; his sister-in-law JoAnn; his half brother John Martin; his niece and Goddaughter Christina, and his nephews Michael II and Gregory.

Mary Josephine Little 08/11/54-04/14/17

Mary Jo Little passed away at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara on Friday, April 14, 2017 surrounded by family and friends. Jo is survived by her devoted husband, Dan, sons Cyrus McNally, William McNally and Charlie (Sabrina) McNally, her siblings Lewis Reed Jr. (Debbie), Linda L. Reed (Judith), Jay W Reed III (Shannon), 5 grandchildren and 10 nieces and nephews. Born Mary Josephine Reed on August 11, 1954 to LaVerne and Lewis Reed in Ft Eustis, Virginia, she spent her early years living in a number of countries including Japan, Germany and the Netherlands before her father retired from the military. The family settled in

Santa Barbara where Jo graduated from Santa Barbara High School and attended Santa Barbara City College and UCSB. She held a variety of positions during her professional life, her last as Assistant Dean in the College of Creative Studies at UCSB. A loving wife, caring mother, patient sister, cousin and friend, Jo is remembered for her generosity, quick wit, bright and humorous spirit, the mischievous twinkle in her eyes, her calm smile and valiant spirit. She loved traveling with Dan, hosting family and friends at her home, holding babies, stimulating conversation and bringing a warm, welcoming presence to anyone she met. We have been honored to be a part of Jo’s life. She graced and enriched those of everyone who knew her. We give special thanks to the many wonderful and talented nurses and doctors who cared for and cared deeply about Jo during her long stay in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU) of Cottage Hospital. Thanks also to hospitality staff that greeted us each day, to our friends in the parking structure kiosk, and for maple scones from the coffee cart, and for the caring folk in the cafeteria. Just as with Jo, each of you will never be forgotten. A celebration of Jo’s life will be held Sunday, April 30 at 3 pm. The location is the First United Methodist Church, 305 E. Anapamu St., Santa Barbara. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, a scholarship fund has been established in Jo’s name.

Recent History Firsthand


ll the recent talk about the term-limit ordinance’s return to haunt Hal Conklin [] certainly does bring on a feeling of déjà vu! And like last time, there is confusion both about what the language means and about how it came to be written. A court may once again wind up deciding the former, but I can address the latter. The original proposed measure was brought to the city council by a citizens’ reform group, who requested that we — I was a city councilperson at the time — place it on the ballot. It was not placed on the ballot by initiative; it was the council who wrote the final language. Our concern was that incumbency was such an advantage in elections that challengers were placed at an inherent disadvantage. The only goal was to require a break in service after two consecutive terms on the council or as mayor. The proposal brought to us, and reviewed by the city attorney, said simply that no one may serve more than two consecutive terms on the city council, or more than two consecutive terms as mayor. Members of the public addressed that proposal, comment was closed, and the council agreed to place it on the ballot. Then, at the last minute, one councilmember suggested the unlikely possibility that a person could serve two terms on the council and two terms as mayor, then go back on the council for two terms, and back to the Mayor’s office, ad infinitum, without a break. The last-minute addition that managed to put “cumulative” and “consecutive” in the same sentence was intended only to close that sole loophole in the measure. It was not to impose any sort of lifetime ban after 16 years of service; it was not to prevent anyone from serving as mayor after any length of service on the council. And yet here we are. No one will ever again be in Hal Conklin’s position of having served four consecutive terms on the council,

and the court last time ruled that voters only meant he needed a break from service. But because that awkward postscript to the law, hastily drafted on the council dais, is now being misinterpreted as a lifetime ban, it needs to be changed. The council should immediately place before voters a measure to remove that sentence from the law and restore the original wording and intent of the law. The group that proposed the law in the first place perhaps was right about the advantages of incumbency in elections. The measure was approved in 1989 in the same election that saw Mayor Sheila Lodge and me elected to our third terms, and Hal Conklin elected to — Gerry DeWitt, S.B. his fourth!

For the Record

¶ The news article “Déjà Vu All Over Again for Conklin?” on April 13 should have stated that Ernie Salomon and his family came from Germany, not Austria. ¶ After the news story “Laura’s Law on Chopping Block” went to press for the April 20 edition, we were notified that while no one from the Downtown Organization testified at the county supervisors meeting, the organization had submitted an email emphatically urging them to maintain funding for the Laura’s Law program. And in that issue, “Clear as Copper” should have named Jeff, not Andrew, Bermant as developer of Paseo Chapala. ¶ Last week’s Angry Poodle column cited a 300 percent increase in “incompetent to stand trial” (IST) referrals by local judges of criminal defendants to the county’s Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF). While the increase in IST referrals cited was accurate, not all were referred to the PHF unit.

FRANCIS (“Franco”) BERNARD KARZAG, a beloved son, brother, father, grandpa, uncle, and husband, as well as a dear friend of many, died peacefully on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017, at Serenity House, after a short but hard fought battle with an inoperable brain tumor. His loving wife Rhonda Johansen-Karzag and his daughter, Lauren Karzag-Fritz, were at his side. Franco was born in Santa Barbara on April 30, 1953 to Dezso Karczag and Sylvia Karczag, the fourth of five children. He is survived by his daughter, Lauren, his son-in-law- Steven Fritz and his two grandchildren, Mason Fritz and Athena Fritz. His daughter, Lauren, and his grandchildren were everything to him and he cherished every minute he spent with them. He married his love, Rhonda, just a few months ago, on January 18, 2017, since he said there was no better time than the present to be with the woman he so loved. He is also survived by his 3 siblings, Christian Karzag, Anna Karczag and Stephan Karczag as well as his mother, Sylvia Karczag, and 7 nieces and nephews. We all have shared his dreams, felt his passion for his work at Direct Relief, and admired his dedication to his many friends. Franco attended kindergarten at Marymount Girls School when it was co-educational for just kindergarten boys. He later attended Mount Carmel school in Montecito and then Jefferson grammar school located on Alameda Padre Serra, which later became Santa Barbara Middle School. After Jef Jefferson, he attended Santa Barbara Junior High School and briefly Santa Barbara High School. It was during his high school years in the early 70’s that he attended Finegold, an alternative High School where his diploma was handed to him by Jerry Rubin himself – the American social activist, anti-war leader, and counterculture icon

of the 1960s and 70s. Later, he attended Santa Barbara City College and then Santa Barbara College of Law later in life. His only daughter, Lauren, was born in 1983. During their times together they would enjoy Big League Bubble Gum, Apple Juice, Beef Jerky and singing “This Old Man (knickknack Paddy-Whack).” He later passed the tradition of singing this song down to his grandson Mason. Franco had great musical ability in both singing and playing the guitar and cherished the classic rock of the 60’s and 70’s – mostly the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and above all, Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven. His varied career ranged from going through the Panama Canal, to working in New Orleans on Gulf oil rig service boats, to a stint as a roofer in Indiana, and even a soccer coach in Los Altos. In the 90’s Franco enjoyed a career in car sales and management. He prided himself in being a car enthusiast, and loved to share stories about all the vehicles that he had owned throughout the years to anyone who would listen. Franco was determined to become a professional and graduated from Santa Barbara College of Law with a JD. It wasn’t an easy task for him for many reasons, but he persevered and stuck with it as he did with many things. But his true calling and passion was working for Direct Relief. He carried on the legacy of his father, Dezso Karczag, a co-founder of Direct Relief, by dedicating every working hour of the last years of his life to the organization. In November 2016 Franco furthered his commitment to helping others when he traveled to El Salvador to help install a drinking water purification system for a village with no clean water. It was an experience that touched him deeply and that he hoped to do again in the future. Franco was a shining light who had a tremendous impact on so many lives, especially in the last 6 years. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues at Direct Relief, all of the many people he sponsored and mentored in Recovery and, most of all, his family and friends. Franco would have wanted his struggles in the last few months to have meaning and make a difference for those to come. In his memory please consider donating to the Defeat GBM Research Collaborative. Visit to donate. A memorial for Franco will be held at Direct Relief 27 S. La Patera Lane, Goleta on Sunday May 7th at 1 pm.

Where Have All Our Characters Gone?

ARE WE BORING? Santa Barbara: so sensible,

so straight-arrow, so, shall we say, lacking in local color? All right: boring? In days gone by, our streets were festooned with characters, mostly harmless, some loveable, others just plain strange. We gave them names, chatted with them when we could, and tolerated their eccentricities. Today, their places on State Street seem to be taken by the young and the restless, who hang around briefly and then move on without leaving an indelible mark on the town. Of all the characters of yesteryear, none were more embraced by locals than Jonesie, court jester of downtown Santa Barbara. He was usually decked out in outlandish duds, bells dangling, and often went around banging a drum or blowing a horn. He eventually retired to the Mother Lode Country. Before they finally hauled off the Highway 101 stoplights, you could find Freeway Emma, a k a Preacher Woman, urging the young hitchhikers to give up their roaming ways and Find God. It took courage to stand out there in her thin print dress, rain or shine, and bring The Word to kids who politely listened but gave no sign of heeding her pleadings. After the lights went out, she could be found buttonholing youths downtown. The Cart Woman was familiar to many as she roamed the streets, pushing a heavy gro-

cery cart laden with belongings of every sort, on a journey known only to her. Sadly, she met her fate under the wheels of a bus. I often chatted with Downtown Jerry, a short, well-dressed guy who drifted from bar to bar, never noticeably drunk and who handed out business cards. Always had a pleasant smile on his face. The cards read “Downtown Jerry,” and something to the effect of having no job and no worries. Cigarette Man walked the downtown sidewalks, eyes peeled for something to smoke. If he chanced upon a butt, he’d stash it away so as never to be without a smoke. I always suspected him of putting signs in urinals that said: “Please Do Not Throw Butts in the Urinals. It Makes Them Soggy and Hard to Light.” Then there was The Bookworm, a k a Library Man, wearing a floppy old raincoat and lugging an armful of books. But I never saw him in the downtown library. He was usually muttering, sometimes shouting, about the sorry state of the world. People gave him a wide berth. Beach Boy, no connection with the singing group, was 50ish and always wore a swimsuit and T-shirt, no matter what time of year. Someone who kept track of him said he’d never seen him at the beach. Messiah Man could be found in a white, biblical-era robe, seated in a De la Guerra

Plaza group of the young, apparently attempting to guide them onto paths of righteousness by preaching The Word. People whispered that he ministered them with weed, but probably not, because I never heard of him being questioned by cops who also frequented the park. There were countless more, like the Standing Man, who could be found immobile in parks, staring at trees. “He has a fetish for palm trees,” a friend ONE OF A KIND: Not too many moons ago, Santa Barbara was home reported. to many offbeat characters, among them the Standing Man, who was The Angry Woman mesmerized by palm trees. loved to sit on a State Street bench, puffing on a cigarette but now and then against the cold, her eyes closed, slowly rockflying into a rage and delivering long, pointless ing.Was she dreaming of happier days, recalltirades at passing tourists.

One repOrter’s JOurney thrOugh a strange Land


ne hundred days ago, on a cold January morning, I was wandering around the Washington Mall, waiting for Donald J. Trump to be inaugurated as president of the United States. Small clutches of people draped in plastic smocks and red caps milled about the wet, muddy grass. Few, in the mostly white crowd, restrained their adoration of Trump. Everyone seemed thrilled the temperature was in the high 40s. I was freezing in my borrowed black parka and green wool gloves. Everyone else seemed to be from everywhere but California. I did not recognize them. They probably didn’t recognize me. I thought I had just landed on Pluto. They looked like they had just arrived home. Most of the people in the crowd were men, some of whom acted as if I were privileged just to hear their thoughts. One guy from Texas spoke with such conviction I could barely get a word in. Progressives had attacked good Christian values, he said; they were taking his country in a direction he could not control. As I made my way around, I wondered how these enthusiastic people justified the fact Trump had, on the campaign trail, slighted everyone from our Mexican neighbors to war heroes such as Senator John McCain to a Gold Star family. Most agreed they had reservations about such remarks, but they complained the media has blown them out of proportion. Well, I was media, I suppose — sent to D.C. to report on both the inauguration and the Women’s March on Washington. It’s a traditional trait for journalists to distance themselves from the events they cover, and in the four years I’ve worked as a reporter, I’ve learned to stand in the back of the room, always on the outside looking in. It’s not the usual social interaction, and one that has sometimes been a challenge for me since the recent presidential election.

June GlOOm

When I began working at The Santa Barbara Independent, I was assigned to cover the crevices of Santa Barbara life, from immigration to sexual violence to criminal justice to school board meetings. At UCSB, I had studied the history of public policy. But I soon discovered it’s a lot more difficult to write about people who are alive and living in my own town — to be honest but not to have an anxiety attack the next time I run into them at the grocery store. For those of us in our twenties, this is the first time we’ve experienced such an enormous political spectacle. Of course, we lived through the horrors of 9/11 and the Iraq War, but we were just kids. We didn’t experience the cultural earthquake those from the Vietnam generation did — at least until now. Perhaps the Trump phenomenon is our Vietnam. When Trump was declared the next United States president, on

November 9, a fog seemed to descend over Santa Barbara, or at least its mostly liberal population. It was as if June Gloom started seven months early. For the last 100 days, I’ve tried to make sense of that fog, talking politics with my friends and my parents and during the interviews I had while covering stories. Plenty of smart people are still trying to make sense of Trump’s ascension to power. Perhaps the most knowledgeable person I spoke with was the renowned journalist Lou Cannon, who has covered national and state politics through many administrations, most notably for the Washington Post during Ronald Reagan’s administration. When I told him I was struggling to figure out something original to say about Trump’s first 100 days, he stopped me. That marker, he said, was an “artificial construct,” for any president, especially this one. “The first 50 days revealed how inexperienced he is and how much it is an amateur operation,” he said. “It didn’t take 100 days.”

like Oil and Water

I grew up in a politically mixed family. My mom, a moderate liberal, was a high school guidance counselor. My dad is a conservative freelance artist. You don’t hear about many of those. He doesn’t fit into any pigeonhole. In his youth, he was a Vietnam War protester and a self-described JFK liberal. As he has gotten older, though, he has gotten more conservative. As a kid most evenings, I talked about current events with my dad as we watched NBC news together. For a long time, I considered many of my dad’s beliefs gospel (not that I know much about the Gospel). But by the time I got to UCSB, my political point of view had changed. Our dinners together became battlegrounds — ideas polarized for the sake of debate. I became the Knee-Jerk Liberal, and he the Grumpy Conservative. My mom hated it. But deep down, I refused to accept my dad truly believed some of his points. I respected him so much. For the past several months, however, I was afraid to ask him whom he voted for. When he confirmed it was Trump, I cringed. He said he found many of the things Trump said offensive but worried Hillary Clinton would “send the country

down a leftward path it would never return from.” I really lost it when he used the phrase “progressive cultural hegemony.” Is he really worried political correctness would wipe out individualism and personal freedoms? The truth is I don’t personally know many other Trump voters. Many of my friends in California grew up hating Republicans. I rarely told anyone my dad was a “Republican.” It sounded like a bad word. But I’ve come to realize my dad gave me a useful perspective. He has made me more empathetic and open to different viewpoints. In Santa Barbara after the election, it became commonplace for many to ridicule Trump. It’s as if we forgot 56,000 people in the county voted for him. A giant blue truck parked on Anapamu Street last October was vandalized with white spray paint: “FUCK TRUMP.” Some passersby rejoiced. Fifth graders reported being bullied in school when they stuck up for Trump. I’ve interviewed several Trump voters who said they are afraid to admit they voted for him. One Westmont student said he felt he was forced to take the Trump bumper sticker off the back of his truck after a middle-aged woman flipped him off on the freeway. As she sped past, he found it ironic she had a “Love Trumps Hate” sticker on the back of her car. Trump’s election has made us all reexamine our personal set of values. In my social circles, I am surrounded by Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton fans. We can barely get through dinner without someone listing Trump’s latest outrage or citing some new resist hashtag like #DeleteUber. (During Trump’s Muslim travel ban in January, protesters called for taxi companies and Uber to boycott airports. Taxis supported the protests, but Uber sent their drivers and turned off “surge pricing.”) Frankly, I never understood why people expected Uber to be so socially conscious. Wasn’t it the one who treated their drivers as independent contractors, not as employees, and never shied from trying to override state safety laws? Why would leftists have ever downloaded the app in the first place? In Santa Barbara, we tend to think we live in a liberal enclave of tolerance and safety. But it is a comfort blanket that doesn’t cover everyone. Last month, I attended a workshop where a group of Spanish-speaking women came to learn how to protect their families should immigration agents suddenly arrest them. One woman said more people wanted to come but were afraid the meeting was a federal government trap. Some worried their children would be left on the side of the road if they were pulled over in a traffic stop. Mothers pored over forms, adding a second name to their bank accounts, applying for dual citizenship for their children, and developing a plan to care for their older relatives. I realized how oblivious I was to such fears. Later, I learned that 5-year-olds in Carpinteria were playing a hide-and-seek-type game called La Migra, Spanish for

immigration law enforcement. Though there are no confirmed reports of immigration authorities rounding people up and shipping them to detention centers, fear is more powerful than truth. In Santa Barbara, elected leaders have sought not only to calm these fears but also to speak truthfully about what policy changes may impact lives — which ones Trump will enforce and which ones will be funded. It is difficult for officials to figure out what is the best way to handle these new policies—threatened or real. When 1st District Supervisor Das Williams said that after the election he felt more ideological than ever, I could not help but feel some hesitation. What does that mean for projects that need federal funding, such as the Highway 101 widening? And that’s just the roads. Santa Barbara County receives a total of about $240 100 SHOCKS: Eric Johnson, one of the few people of color at the Trump million from the federal government every inauguration, said the African-American community clings too much to past struggles. But he predicted Trump would get a higher percentage of year. Congressmember Salud Carbajal has spothe black vote in 2020. As for Trump’s first 100 days in office, Johnson said ken out against a number of proposed policies in January: “Every day we are going to be surprised.” affecting immigration and off-shore oil drilling.

Some shake this issuing these lists, but to me it highlighted a major disconnect between the Trump administration and government agencies carrying out laws that have been in place for years.

Even though recent polls show Trump’s approval rating continuing to drop, especially among independent voters, conservatives see him as making good on his promises. While the media is highlighting one botched Trump initiative after another—the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, broadened immigration policies, the Muslim travel ban—Republicans realize the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court will greatly outlast any other failures and mistakes of the Trump administration. In fact, according to Cannon, the best thing for Trump was the failure of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal. Sure, it cost him a healthy crop of negative press, he said, but he doesn’t have to deal with the “ire” of Trump voters who obtained health insurance through the ACA.“If you voted for somebody and you lose your coverage, that will affect SNIFFLING: As the Trump presidency feels like allergies that won’t you,” he said.“All politics is retail.” go away, progressive liberals such as Susan Epstein reconvened The bungled repeal attempt also demonstrated meetings of the Progressive Coalition. members of Congress do not feel they owe Trump anything, he added, for the politicians who finished notion off, saying the Trump administration is so inept ahead of Trump in their districts might be less inclined it might take them more than four years to figure it all to support his bills. To contrast, President Reagan ran ahead in almost every congressional district, he said, out. But is that a little too cavalier? This really hit home for me when I was covering the extent to which the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office cooperated with agents from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). For some time, immigrant activists hammered Sheriff Bill Brown for allowing ICE agents unfettered access into his jail to search databases and interview foreign-born inmates convicted of what ICE called violent crimes. But despite this history of a good working relationship with local ICE agents, Santa Barbara County suddenly showed up on a White House–requested list issued by Homeland Security, citing LYIN’ MEDIA: Hard-core Trump fans at the inauguration saw my press pass the county as being uncooperative and and considered me to be an enemy of the people. “potentially endangering Americans.” kelsey brugger

Elizabeth Gilbert

APPLES AND ORANGES: Esteemed journalist Lou Cannon, who has written five biographies of Ronald Reagan, said a fair comparison does not exist between the two Republican presidents’ first 100 days in office, because Reagan was shot in that time period and Americans were sympathetic toward him.

even carrying a number of Democratic districts. “It was no coincidence those were the Democrats who voted for his tax bill,” he said. So far, Cannon gives Trump a C-. “But I’m grading him from the presumption he wasn’t going to do a lot of things he said he was going to do, because he didn’t know how to do them,” he said. “He hasn’t held political office. He doesn’t read. He believed his own rhetoric. … At some point, if he doesn’t start moving on the tax issue, [congressional leadership] will. Can he cobble together some kind of half-assed way out on health care before that happens? I don’t know the answer to that.”

What nOW?

We’ve all had moments crystalizing the notion we are in a new era. For me, it was after the Women’s March on Washington. The energy that day felt like a giant Zumba class, but the lingering spirit was zapped out of me that night. As I sat at Off the Record, a hip bar in D.C., an elegant woman drinking champagne grew irritated after the bartender refused to change the channel to Fox News. She got up and walked out in a tizzy. Taken aback, the bartender told me Republican politicians come through all the time, but no one has ever had such a problem with CNN. It’s easy to look at history and say the pendulum swings; the Republicans and Democrats take turns wielding power. But will the progressive gains during the last 50 years withstand the next four years (or eight)? So one key question is this: Does the new movement of opposition have staying power? And in Santa Barbara, are we confining ourselves to an echo chamber where well-intended progressives are just preaching to the choir?

GOOd GrieF

One progressive activist told me liberals, here in Santa Barbara and across the country, have been going through the six stages of grief —shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance. He thinks that eventually they will have to accept the loss. But Santa Barbara doesn’t seem quite ready. About two months ago, on March 2, writer and activist Gloria Steinem spoke at the Arlington Theatre. I was struck by how light-heartened and uplifted she still was. At 83, she’s seen worse. It made me wonder if progressive forces will be able to launch a successful counter-campaign — to mitigate climate change, fight poverty, strengthen civil rights, preserve social welfare nets and women’s rights, and try to stay out of World War III. So in 100 days, I’ve gone from Pluto to Santa Barbara, living a journey of high emotions and downright confusion. I will continue to try to distill all the bureaucratic rhetoric, the bluster both here and in Washington, into as truthful a picture as possible. I’ve learned that no one has the one predictable answer: not Lou Cannon, not the protesters, certainly not my dad. We exist in unchartered territory, folks. But it is our territory, our world, as strange as it has become.

It’s Happening Here: American Renewal, Ingenuity, and Innovation Monday, May 1/ 8:00 p.m. / FREE Lobero Theatre, 33 E Canon Perdido Street Today’s dominant political refrain is that America is in a state of decline. But to James Fallows nothing could further be from the truth. Over the course of a three-year, 54,000-mile journey across the country, he discovered many surprising points of reinvention, in every region of the country—and enough to refresh the bleak national conversation to reflect a positive truth. Fallows reports on the wide range of civic projects underway that are rebuilding America—a crosssection of generations, races, and political affiliations working far from the usual metropolitan hubs.

n Thursday, April 27, UCSB Arts & Lectures will host a free talk with Laila Lalami, who will speak on Muslims in America: A Secret History at Campbell Hall. Three years have passed since Lalami’s The Moor’s Account was published, but buzz continues to surround the award-winning novelist and essayist. Lalami was born and raised in Rabat, the capital of Morocco, before pursuing higher education in Great Britain and the United States. Her most current novel, The Moor’s Account, details the experience of Estebanico, a Moroccan slave who was one of four survivors from the Narváez expedition — a journey led by Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca in 1527 that began in Spain and ended in Florida. This historical fiction novel was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2015. Lalami shares her experience living as an immigrant, emerging as a public figure, and writing the fiction novel that not only sheds light on the past but calls attention to present-day affairs.

GOING SWIMMINGLY: Bikini Factory owner Linda Meyer (left) stands with designer/seamstress Stacey Brown.

ell, ladies, swimsuit season is back. While the thought of shedding our Santa Barbaran winter coats may be intimidating to some, a visit to the Bikini Factory’s beachy swimsuit paradise makes the transition into bikini season more fun than ever expected. A stop at the Bikini Factory feels remarkably similar to a visit with a close girlfriend rather than a trip to your usual swimsuit store. Half doors invite you into a homey space, where colorful swimsuits adorn the walls and a children’s toy box sits in the far left corner. A staff of young women wait to accompany you patiently through the search for the perfect swimsuit. Empowering signs hang beside each dressing room mirror, reminding all women: “The first rule in body appreciation is not to knock it! Do not stand in front of the mirror berating the bad points. Do stand in front of the mirror praising the good parts.” “That’s our motto,” explains store owner Linda Meyer, who manages the business with an effortless authority. Fifty-two years after its founding in 1965, the store still teems with the strong feminine energy that had inspired the founding of the Bikini Factory in the midst of second-wave feminism. The late store founder Sally Yater had hired Meyer on July 5, 1975, when Fourth of July festivities left most of her staff bedridden. Meyer was only 21 at the time, and she looked up to Yater as not only a female boss but also a mentor. Now at the age of 63, Meyer perpetuates the store’s transgenerational legacy. “I like to hire girls whose mothers I know. If the girls are close to their mothers, I can trust that they’ll understand how to communicate with women of different age groups,” she says. When asked to disclose her secret to the Bikini Factory’s decades of unrivaled success as Santa Barbara’s Best Swimwear Store, according to this paper’s Best of Santa Barbara® Readers’ Poll, Meyer puts it simply: exceptional customer service and a genuine understanding of women. The Bikini Factory covers the gamut, fitting women of all ages with their ideal swimsuits. In addition to a wide in-store selection, customers are given the option to custom design their own swimwear to fit their unique needs and preferences. The Bikini Factory is at “It still feels really good when I can help every woman find a swimsuit 2275 Ortega Hill Road, she truly feels comfortable and Suite B, Summerland. confident in,” Meyer admits with For more information, a warm smile. call 969-2887 or —Olivia Nemec

The Fresno State recruit pitched a complete game and drove in four runs with a homer and a double in an 8-4 win over Dos Pueblos. In a 5-4 win over Ventura, she had the game-winning RBI and a save.

ROYAL FLASHES: San Marcos hurdler Allie Jones (above, foreground) and 800-meter standout Erica Schroeder (below) set new records at the Santa Barbara County Championships.

RecoRd-seTTinG RaceRs three high School Stars hit Personal and county Records


hree high school track athletes were hanging out together during the Santa Barbara County Championships. Anthony Manahan, Michael Powers, and Kiasa Salgado had finished one-two-three in the varsity 400-meter run. Salgado was asked about his unusual first name. “It’s Kenyan,” he said. “It means ‘One who stands on his own.’ ” “That’s a dope name,” declared Manahan — enabling this aged reporter to quote the latest youthful transformation of a word with a formerly bad connotation, like “sick” or “bad” itself, into an affirmative expression. Manahan then made a call on his mobile phone. “Mom,” he said, “I’m changing my name. I want to be called Kiasa.” It is one of the salutary aspects of track and field that competitors from different teams — Manahan from Lompoc, Powers from Santa Maria St. Joseph, and Salgado from Santa Barbara — can take the time to engage in friendly conversations beyond the perfunctory handshake at the end of an event. The three seniors all pushed themselves to personal records (PRs) in the 400, Manahan winning in 49.37 seconds, followed by Powers (50.37) and Salgado (50.51). Regardless of where you finish, a PR is like a medal to an athlete. It’s a measure of how hard and how smartly you trained to perform to the best of your ability. There’s no way to fool the stopwatch and tape measure. They’ll tell you if

you’re slacking off or reward you with evidence of your improvement. The County Championships last Saturday, April 22, at Carpinteria High produced some of the best performances in three decades of record-keeping. San Marcos senior Erica Schroeder lowered her own meet record in the girls’ 800 meters to 2:13.45. Most importantly, she felt good doing it, having overcome the aches and pains that are the enemy of performance. An Achilles tendon problem prompted her to do the wise thing and rest early in the season rather than run relentlessly. “I’ve got to take care of myself,” she said. Schroeder is an elite athlete, heading to the University of Washington, with six sub-2:10 clockings to her credit, including a PR of 2:07.08 in winning the state championship as a sophomore on a night of perfect racing. She was a state finalist again last year, and you know her heart is set on making it there a third time. Allie Jones, a San Marcos junior, is coming on like gangbusters. She won the 100 hurdles in 14.08, a new school, meet, and stadium record. The aspiring heptathlete also won the 100 meters, took second in the shot put, and anchored the winning 4x400 relay team. Jones gave credit to Santa Barbara’s Natasha Fesh­ bach, a freshman at Yale, who won three straight county hurdle titles. “She made me run faster,” Jones said.

John ZanT’s Game of The Week

Kiasa Salgado, Santa Barbara track

He won his third title in the varsity 300-meter hurdles at the Santa Barbara County Championships, matching his best time of 39.36 seconds, and placed third in the 400. He is bound for UC San Diego.

in the distance races, Hunter Clark taking the boys’ 1,600 and Christina Rice lapping several girls in the 3,200. Rice is going to UCLA and looks forward to seeing Schroeder and former DP star Addi Zerrenner, who’s at Arizona, in Pac-12 competition. Anybody who’s attended a meet at San Marcos knows that the school goes all out in track and field. The participation and energy that the Royals put into the sport resulted in their sweeping top team honors in every category at the county meet. Among their other winners were junior sprinter Jenny Nnoli in the girls’ 200 and 400, and her older brother Brian Nnoli, who twice exceeded 46 feet in the triple jump, winning at 46′1¾. AROUND THE TRACK: Dos Pueblos graduate Stamatia Scarvelis, who won three consecutive state championships

in the girls’ shot put, has transferred from UCLA to Tennessee, where she has broken the Vols’ record in the hammer throw with a heave of 64.86 meters (212′9½). … Barbara Nwaba, the Santa Barbara Track Club’s Olympic heptathlete, is healing from a stress fracture in her left knee. … UCSB junior Jenna Hinkle set a school record of 4:16.62 in the women’s 1,500 at the Stanford Invite. … Jordan Hasay of Arroyo Grande was a phenomenal runner from age 12, when she left adults in the dust in Santa Barbara road races, through her high school years. She had her ups and downs in college and fell short of Olympic qualifying. But last week, at age 25, she seems to have found her bliss in the marathon. She finished third at Boston in 2 hours, 23 minutes, an American women’s record for a marathon debut. … Beverley Lewis, for years one of the most-watched people at a track meet (when she fires the starter’s pistol), has been named the 2017 Southern Cal Female Official of the Year by the California Coaches Association. … Kudos to the Carpinteria High crew that puts on the county meet, the Russell Cup, and the CIF Division 4 prelims every year. One of its diligent workers is Ben Hallock, the school’s football coach, who is retiring after 38 years in education. He also coached at Bishop Diego and Santa Barbara High, his alma n mater.

Harish Prather

Take a Trip on the

S.B. Ale TrAil M

uch like what’s happened across the country, Santa Barbara’s craft brew scene exploded in recent years, as nearly 20 producers now operate from Carpinteria to Lompoc. With more on the way — most notably the Night Lizard Brewing Company, which is coming to 607 State Street sometime soon — how are beer lovers supposed to keep track of it all? Harish Prather’s answer to this draughty dilemma is the Santa Barbara Ale Trail, a digital app and printed map that neatly organizes all of the breweries in Santa Barbara County and rewards repeat visitors. “I’m so excited about the craft brew scene and in Santa Barbara, and this map is really just Guides Craft Brew Lovers our way to encourage around town and Beyond people to engage with community-oriented by Matt Kettmann businesses,” said Prather of the free map and app. “It’s a one-stop place to see the latest beer list, upcoming events, the new releases, and other things that the beer world cares about.” Prather, who came to town in 1999 to attend S.B. City College and worked for years in restaurants, came up with the idea while a graduate student at UCSB’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management. He studied the carbon footprint of buying bottled beer in stores versus refilling growlers at nearby breweries, and he realized there was a vast difference when it came to transportation and packaging costs. So, with the help of start-up mentor Kyle Ashby and the support of UCSB’s Technology Management Program, he first developed the Loyale app about a year ago as a sort of digital punch card, where a certain number of check-ins and/or refills lead to special deals with participating breweries. That part of the business continues to evolve, with subscription-like services available to breweries for a small monthly fee. The app also provides an easy-to-use and automated platform that enables small breweries to expand their digital presence. “It gives each brewery the technology that only a big brewery can afford,” said Prather.   But the real consumer interface for Santa Barbara beer lovers is the Ale Trail, which awards prizes to those folks who use the Loyale app to track their brewery explorations. “The purpose of the prizes is to provide a memory of the experience,” said Prather, so that can include free glasses and other memorabilia.

las, we’re in an age when it seems we need to donate to everything, as so much seems at risk —women’s rights, the air we breathe, the arts, bear cubs in their den… So it’s great to see that the Foodbank continues a wonderful way to raise some funds with the Fork & Cork Classic, celebrating what’s good to eat and drink in Santa Barbara. This year’s event happens Sunday, May 7, at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort. “Each year, we feature restaurants and wineries that have been mainstays in the region’s food and wine landscape, and we introduce new voices,” says Leslie Velez, development coordinator of the Foodbank. “The restaurants as a group represent our diverse food culture, from seafood to tacos to beef sliders. Since a major part of the Fork & Cork Modern Masters honoree Foodbank’s mission is to Archie McLaren transform the health of Santa Barbara County through good nutrition, we emphasize restaurants that use fresh, local produce in their cuisine and serve food that is as nourishing as it is satisfying.” Think everyone from Bar 29 to Wildwood Kitchen, plus special hyper-local delights such as The Good Lion serving cocktails made with Cutler’s Artisan Spirits at the Backyard Bounty Bar, which highlights the Foodbank’s Backyard Bounty produce-gleaning program. Each year, Fork & Cork honors Modern Masters, and this year it lauds Independent Foodie Award–winning chocolatier Jessica Foster, Independent Foodie Award–winners Jasper and Brook Eiler of Harvest Santa Barbara, and Archie McLaren of the Central Coast Wine Classic, who has never won a Foodie as his event is so wonderfully wine-y. “At Fork & Cork, we recognize visionaries in food, wine, and agriculture,” Velez stresses. “Our 2017 honorees have distinguished themselves in their work, but what is most impressive is how much they each give back to the community through their businesses and also through generously sharing knowledge and time.” So while people eat and drink themselves happy on Fess Parker’s circular Plaza del Sol, they are also helping the Foodbank provide food for 300 nonprofit organizations in Santa Barbara County.“One in four people seek nutritional support from the Foodbank annually; we distribute 10 million pounds of food countywide each year,” Velez points out. “This event has raised as much as $50,000 for the Foodbank in past years.”

Cox, who earned praise for his work at Sierra Mar at the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur. Cox is supported by Santa Barbara native Chef Jeremy Tummel and Sous Chef Trent Shank. Overseeing the restaurant and beverage program is General Manager and Sommelier Rachel Vander Veer. There are four environments within the restaurant space: The Dining Room, Wine Room for area winemakers and private functions, Chef’s Room for classes and small dining groups, and Bar/Lounge. The Bear and Star’s “Refined Ranch Cuisine” model is intertwined to the 714-acre Fess Parker Home Ranch, located seven miles away on Foxen Canyon. Seventy-five head of Wagyu cattle are raised and finished with the spent grains and pomace from the family brewery and winery. Also raised on the ranch for use in the restaurant are chickens, quail, rabbits, pigs, bees, and a number of heirloom fruits and organic vegetables, ultimately linking the Parker family’s expertise in hospitality, wine-making, and ranching to the dining experience. With this all-encompassing ecosystem developed under Chef Cox’s passion and vision, the ranch is supplying much of the produce for The Bear and Star, with beef and pork anticipated to be available by fall 2017. The all-day menu for lunch and dinner offers Wagyu Fries with garden herb aioli; Smoked Berkshire Pork Rillettes with grilled country bread and house pickled onion; Deviled Ranch Eggs with Santa Barbara urchin and espelette; Fried Green Tomatoes with “cheese wiz” and BBQ spice; Smoked Wagyu Carpaccio with cured egg yolk, koji, charred scallion, and radish; Parker Ranch Wagyu Burger with smoked cheddar, tomato jam, and butter pickles; Crispy Catfish with refried black-eyed peas and “blackened” smoked tomato sauce; Berkshire Pork Chop with cheesy grits, syrah-braised cabbage, and grain mustard pan jus; Wagyu Meat Loaf with potato purée, garden vegetables, and pan jus; Gnocchi Stroganoff with mushrooms from the farm and crispy herbs; Parker Ranch Chile with cheddar, chives, and corn bread crouton; Local Stuffed Quail with farro risotto, bay laurel, and red-wine demi-glace; Cast-Iron Steaks with crispy shallots, demi-glace, and herb butter; and choices of a 60-ounce Angus Filet, 12-ounce New York, or an 18-ounce Wagyu Ribeye. The restaurant is open daily for breakfast from 7-10:30 a.m.; the full-day menu for lunch and dinner is 11:30 a.m.-10:00 p.m. and serves brunch on weekends, 7:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. The bar is open every day, 11:30 a.m.-midnight.

n what is almost a yearly tradition now, the much-beloved writer, humorist, essayist, and orator David Sedaris will come back to Santa Barbara in an Arts & Lectures–hosted evening at the Arlington Theatre on Wednesday, May 3 — and we couldn’t be more grate-ful. After all, the man who has made his life’s work of recounting his life in pierc piercingly thoughtful, gently sweet, wryly wise, and outright hilarious memoirs and essays, after all these years, does not stop being great at what he does, and he’s found quite the connection in Santa Barbara audiences.You might say he’s stolen our hearts. Speaking of thievery, his newest work takes the title Theft by Finding.. In his new book and in Finding his upcoming talk, Sedaris will take us back in time by recounting pieces pulled from his own journals over the years, shar-ing with us snippets of a life rich with unique expeexpe riences and observations. Sedaris learned the phrase “theft by finding,” a British term, while traveling in EngEng land.“I found a five-pound note on the street, and my friend Pam said it was theft by finding: If you

find something, you don’t bother to figure out if it’s lost or stolen,” he said. In his new collection, whether it’s “the things I found, the stories people told me, or the jokes I heard heard— it just made sense as a title.” The book documents 25 years of Sedaris’s life, spun from the pages of the diaries he began keep keeping when he was 20. “My boyfriend calls it David Copperfield Sedaris,” he said. A great deal of Sedaris’s work comes from his own observations of life, and he’s renowned for raising the potency of the mundane to reveal its profundity. When he looks back on the days that were, he sees, much like a char character in a story, a person propelled by his wants, motiva motivations, and needs.“When I look back, I can see somebody who wanted certain things, and I saw that person getting those things, which is really what a story is,” he said. If you want to be a storyteller, Sedaris says, don’t forget to make your characters want something, too. “At [storytelling] clubs,

people would be reading, and the character in their story would have no name, or they were so blasé they just didn’t want anything. They didn’t care if they lived or died, and I didn’t care if they lived or died, either.” Sedaris says he’s gotten a lot of the things he’s wanted, albeit not always in the way, shape, or form he planned. Getting what he wanted has been a mixture of luck, choices, and circumstances, but Sedaris says the first step to getting what you want is admitting you want it.“When you announce what you want, it’s scary because [you feel] if you don’t get it, you’re a failure,” he said. Not all of Sedaris’s stories have such high stakes, though, as he so often finds funny material in fractions of fractions of moments.“I had dinner with a writer friend who teaches, and one assignment she gives is to write about something that happened that day, or over the past hour, and, wow, that’s a really good assignment: if you make them look back over the past hour and say, ‘What happened then?’ and ‘How can I make that compelling?’” he said. But whether we’re living our lives or fleshing out the characters in the stories we tell of our own lives, in the end, we’re all just human, he said. “For one moment in the story, I have to make them realize that we’re the same,” he said. “If people can relate to these stories on some level, they say, ‘Oh my god. He’s a human; I am, too.’”— ” my job is to make that connection.” David Sedaris will give a talk at the Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.) on Wednesday, May 3, at 8 p.m. For more information, visit —Richie DeMaria


I.V. RockeRs R Rs


I’ve got no idea what the Isla Vista music scene is like right now, though I’d bet it’s dominated by recorded tunes as compared to live bands, thanks in large part to the sound and suds shackles social host ordinances and other well-meaning/ culturally destructive measures the overlords have imposed in recent decades. When I was cruising Del Playa 20 years ago, however, live music was the nightly show, with rock ’n’ roll, jam bands, reggae, ska, and the occasional freestyle rap accompanying our Natty Ice and Red Nectar kegs every weekend. Granted, some of the tunes that I shimmied to with drunken abandon may not have stood up to less beer-lubed ears. But flipping out to ALO’s light show in I.V. Brew Co., skanking to Jimmy 2 Times on a balcony with ocean waves crashing below, and catching a Cool Water Canyon show at Anisq’Oyo’ Park as the smoke blew and cops watched on remain some of my fondest experiences in life, let alone college. Those were the days — prior to the Attias crash, prior to the mass shootings, prior to social media creating the Float- and Deltopia crazes that inspired the crackdowns — when Isla Vista was fully engaged in guilt yet still somewhat innocent.

Cool Water Canyon In a fit of brilliance, UCSB Alumni is bringing such bands back for a show at Campbell Hall during the All Gaucho Reunion, which itself is becoming quite a worthy affair for all graduated ages. Zach Gill of ALO (and keyboardist for fellow alum Jack “OMG, will he show up, too?” Johnson), Jimmy 2 Times, and Cool Water Canyon (who also plays Sat., Apr. 29, at Velvet Jones) will rep my general era, while The Olés are picking up the more recent slack, on Friday, April 28, at 8 p.m. In a nod to an ALO song, it’s billed as Wasting Time: Music at the Heart of Isla Vista, and tickets can be snagged at Bring $5 for the keg (not really). —Matt Kettmann

Sweeney Todd The character Sweeney Todd was first introduced to the masses in Britain in 1846, when a weekly magazine featuring penny dreadfuls — macabre popular fiction that usually involved detectives, criminals, or supernatural beings — published a serialized story called The String of Pearls, in which the cannibalistic, psychotic barber appeared. The piece was an instant hit. More than a century later, the demon barber of Fleet Street still entertains and chills audiences thanks to Stephen Sondheim’s musical adaptation, which premiered on Broadway in 1979 and will soon be playing at Laguna Blanca High School. “We chose this show because our students were ready for the challenge, to have something to bite their teeth into,” said LB theater teacher Dana Caldwell of tackling the Tony Award–winning musical. High school theater is often a training ground for future professional thespians, and Caldwell takes that seriously. “My goal as a theater teacher is to provide my actors and crewmembers with the greatest range of experience I can to prepare them for university and beyond.” In contrast to last year’s spring offering, Seussical the Musical, Sweeney Todd delves into the wicked side of human nature, which allowed the students to explore sinister themes. “Exploring the darkness, along with the light, is vital for young artists,” said Caldwell, “and I believe they will be stronger for it, both as performers and as citizens of the world.” Sweeney Todd’s subject matter is indeed grisly, and digging into it with teenagers can seem an ambitious exercise. Yet, according to Caldwell, it was what made the experience so gratifying. “[It was] the most challenging part of working with these young actors but, of course, the most important and rewarding,” she said. “[The] students have left me in awe, and I could not be more proud of their tremendous achievements both on and off the stage. Sweeney Todd runs Thursday-Friday, April 27-28, 7 p.m., and Saturday, April 29, 2 p.m., at Laguna Blanca’s Spaulding Auditorium, 4125 Paloma Drive. Tickets are $10 at the door (for mature audiences). —Michelle Drown

Justin townes eArle



y records are always concepts, with loose themes to all of them,” said singer/songwriter Justin Townes Earle in a recent phone interview with The Santa Barbara Independent. On his new album, Kids in the Street, which drops May 26, one of the subjects that Earle, who is the son of folksinger Steve Earle, ponders is the effect of gentrification in his hometown Nashville, Tennessee.“There are areas I don’t even recognize,” he said. Earle’s songwriting is contemplative, often ruminating on the darker side of life, such as addiction and disappointment, his pleasing, wistful voice drawing in the listener. However, Kids is more hopeful than previous albums, he said. “It’s by far the most up-tempo record I’ve made.” With a daughter on the way, Earle has much to rejoice.“Life is changing for the better.”

Is there a theme lyrically to Kids in the Street? Yeah, it’s gentrification and the structure of the inner city. I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, and there’s a difference between the gentrification that takes place in Nashville and everywhere else …. They’ve wiped out whole historic sides of town. There’s not much time between your records. Every year or so, you put something out. Do you think any of those records were made in haste? No, I mean that’s one thing I’ve been careful of from the start. I know a lot of people … [who] hate

Where did you learn that you should make the album when it’s time, as opposed to just churning them out? I got it from my dad. One of the things he said to me really early on, “Nobody should ever mount the record ’til they’re ready, ’cause then you can make sure that it’s right.” But then he said, “You’re my son, so you really can’t make a record until you’re ready. They’ll rip you to pieces,” and they would. I think that’s the way I’ve been able to avoid — I hate to use it as an example — but the Julian Lennon syndrome, you know? Where you’re constantly compared [to your father] and it drives you insane. — Michelle Drown

their first record. Or they don’t like their sophomore record. I still feel great about all my records. I haven’t listened to them. [Laughs.] Still, there’s none that I regret, no songs I regret.



udiences were introduced to the powerhouse vocals of Crystal Bowersox in 2010 when the singer competed on the ninth season of American Idol. Although she didn’t walk away with the title, Bowersox etched herself into the hearts and ears of millions. Since then, she’s released two records, moved to Nashville, and is now on tour for her third record, a live album called, appropriately, Alive, available June 16. I recently spoke over the phone to the gracious, epically talented singer as she headed down the highway for a slate of West Coast gigs that includes a stop at the Lobero Theatre on Friday, April 28. Tell me about your new record. I’m proud of everything that I’ve released. But I didn’t feel like any of my previous releases had captured my show and who I am as a live show. What better than a live record? Although it’s been years since you were on American Idol, how pivotal was it for your career? I would say my life is separated by it—it’s my life before and my life after. It changed my life in every way possible. I have stability for my son, which is the reason I even tried out for the show. I’m making music for a living, and I’m blessed. I’m utterly blessed in every way. Are you working on another album? I’m kind of always writing songs. Some artists I suppose write songs for a particular project. When a song strikes, just write it. After a while, I’ll have enough collected, and I can choose


which ones make a project and put them together. I will start working on the next release pretty soon. Is there anything else you’d like to say about the tour, your music, or for the Santa Barbara audiences? I can’t wait to get to California, that’s for sure. It’s funny, you said,“You should have won [American Idol]” … . Someone said to me, “If only you had a dollar every time you heard that.” Then a light bulb came on. At my show, there’s a funky little “You should have won” box. I ask fans to write [that] down on a dollar bill denomination of their choice and put it in the box, which then goes on to charity. My pet charity is type 1 diabetes research, JDRF. The other thing I guess you can say to fans is the chance for them to meet me is about 95 percent. I like to come out after the show. I’m the first one there and the last one to leave. — MD

t is always with great marvel that one bears witness to a young artist on the precipice, feet slowly backing away from the familiar and toward the prodigious unknown. Each spring, UCSB celebrates this dedicated rite of passage through its annual spring dance concert, and each year, a fresh perspective unfolds as a new set of graduating seniors descend on the Hatlen stage to At UCSB’s Hatlen reflect on how their Theater, Sat., Apr. 15. studies might fit into the world’s broader conversation. Guest choreographers Stephanie Gilliland (“Buffalo”) and Gianna Burright (“Anywhere I Can See the Moon”) offered prophecies of strength and hope for the graduating class through respective works that included multifaceted and technically driven composition (not to mention stunning lighting) and personalized accounts through an intimate voiceover soundtrack, while Alice Condodina’s reconstruction of José Limón’s “Psalm” brought a grounding sense of historical context to the program’s curation.

In four of the evening’s seven works, graduating seniors seized the choreographic reigns to explore the use of narrative and structure in distinctive manifestations of voice and approach, from the highly satisfying synchronicity of Rachel Epling’s vintagefiltered “Etched in Us” to Savannah Green’s pulsating push and pull against conformity in “Life in Cages” to Kelli Forman’s “Towards the Yin,” where street dance and gaga influences were fleshed out in four distinctive sections. The dazzling set design and spirited premise of Olivia Maggi’s wonderfully ambitious “The Breeders” fell just shy of execution without a definitive through line, though all four works perceptively touched on subjects that press against the psyche of a young artist on the verge. — Ninette Paloma chris hughes

fter an 11-year hiatus, the SBCC spring dance concert made its triumphant return to the Garvin Theatre, home turf for the newly minted SBCC Dance Company, who bared their technical range in a powerhouse program that underscored the dancers’ palpable hunger for expansion. To say that department head Tracy Kofford is At the Garvin Theatre, making good on his Fri., Apr. 14. promise to expose his dancers to diversified approaches is a story half told; he’s also sanctifying community ties through dedicated collaborations with both emerging artists and seasoned choreographers. The effect is a satisfying study in unified and clearly outlined perspectives — an opportunity for Santa Barbara audiences to take in the diversity of its area artists. Highlights included Weslie Ching’s “We & entertainment Are Made of Stars” and

Shelby Lynn Joyce’s “Until East Meets West,” where sharply focused movement made full use of the larger stage, flooding their reprises with energized intensity, while Brooke Hughes Melton presented the sensually edgy “Echo Chamber,” set to a pleasing soundtrack and costumes of her own design. Through flowing hair and quiet strength, Kofford’s award-winning “Intersecting Fugue” invoked the mysticism of the female siren — a stark contrast to Jerry Pearson’s textured, high-velocity “Bash” — both managing to convey an authentic sense of strength through their emotionally charged dancers. Guest companies from Los Olivos Dance Gallery (“The Trooper”) and Santa Barbara Festival Ballet (“Emboîté”) rounded out the program with a fresh set of student dancers — the latter offering up a whimsical, en pointe number with a 1950s shop-girl vibe that left the audience chuckling with delight. — NP

ew Order paid the Santa Barbara Bowl a visit last Tuesday night. Kicking off the set with “Singularity” off its recent 2015 album, Music Complete, the band showcased its signature, classic ’80s sound that hit close to home for many longtime listeners. Taking a step back in time with 1981 single “Ceremony,” the undeniable aura of Joy Division emanated from the stage, satisfyingly nostalgic for those in the audience who’ve been with New Order since the beginning. Other songs included 2001 Frontman Bernard Sumner single “Crystal,” undoubtedly the tune that reinvigorated the group with a heavy ’85 high school reunion full of youthful recguitar influence after lamation. Yes, the accompanying light show their five-year hiatus was exhilarating, and the band members have At the S.B.

fter 19 years, the battling Reid Brothers have finally dropped a new The Jesus and Mary Chain (TJAMC) album—and it’s great! Of course, the trade trademark TJAMC elements are all present — sardonic stream-of-consciousness lyrics, earworm melodies, distortion, fuzz tone, and a Velvet Underground/ Beach Boys/Phil Spector sensibility … but there’s something more. Perhaps it’s the passage of time, orchestral and synthpop flourishes, or the inclusion of a gaggle of female guest vocalists:

Bernadette Denning on the winning “Always Sad”; Isobel Campbell on “Song for a Secret” and “The Two of Us”; the Reids’ younger sister, Linda, on “Los Feliz (Blues and Greens)” and “Can’t Stop the Rock”; and Sky Ferreira on the excellent “Black and Blues.” Standout tracks include the morbidly satirical Kurt Cobain–referenc Cobain–referencing “Simian Split,” the witty and word-playinfused “Presidici (Et Chapaquiditch),” and the instant classics “War on Peace” and “All Things Pass.” — Sean Mageean

FreDDie giBBs you only live 2wiCe


efitting his holy resurrection depicted on the album cover, rapper Freddie Gibbs’s third album is strewn with religious imagery and airy choral samples over the hardhitting trap beats he’s rapped over the length of his career. Songs such as “Dear Maria” and “Amnesia” are proper showcases of both his abilities as an emcee and his ear for catchy instrumentals that complement his head-nodding flow.

Unfortunately, this record suffers from a lack of ear-grabbing hooks. Gibbs’s rapidfire delivery, while serving him well in giving his verses a sense of urgency, feels tiresome when carried over to the choruses. But at the end of the day, hiphop fans will appre appreciate this album for Gibbs’s technical ability on the mic compared to his peers in the trap rap genre. — Eugene Cheng

METRO 4 CURRENT AFFAIRS: the CW’s Riverdale takes a subversive spin on the high school goings-on of Archie (K.J. Apa) and co.

is about a small town … get closer, and you start seeing the shadows underneath.” Said shadow play includes an opening scene with the redheaded Blossom twins going to Sweetwater River, where Jason (hunky captain of the football team) goes missing. There are subtle suggestions of “twincest” with catty sister Cheryl Blossom, and Jason’s dead body is discovered during a gay triste in the woods. No, this is not your father’s Archie and gang. Speaking of fathers, simmering troubles in Riverdale range from adolescent adventures and flirtatious energies to their parents’ dark sagas. Jughead’s father is battling alcoholism and has gang connections, while Archie’s father suffers woes in his construction business — partly because of the heartless power broker and family-feud-tender Cliff Blossom — and references to Veronica’s white-collar-criminal father freely circulate. In episode eight,“The Outsiders,” Polly Cooper, pregnant with Jason’s baby, is heading to live with the dreaded Blossom family, and Neil Young’s “My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)” takes us into the end credits. What next? Riverdale may be a bit too serious, gothic, soapoperative, and smartphone-age-centric, considering the cheeky and vintage feel of the comic. Melodrama keeps getting the best of things, and humor is all too desperately wanting. Somehow, though, the series can be almost perversely and illogically alluring. Through it all — the blandness and warm, fuzzy moments mixed in with the murderous intrigue and hints of a very dark side in the otherwise clean ’burb-ishness of Riverdale — we keep wondering, “What would David Lynch do with this material?” Stay tuned for the (reportedly) imminent return of Twin Peaks for an alternate viewpoint on American teendom. — Josef Woodard

Archie Comics Dive Headfirst into 2017 with Hormone-Fueled Melodrama ife spent as a prolonged, if not perpetual, adolescent amounts to something of an American ideal, whether or not we choose to fess up to it. And what better personification of the highs, lows, mids, and rebootable Groundhog Day–ish loopiness of that situation than the saga of Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa) and his might-be/could-be loves, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart). Inevitably, and not entirely comfortably, those well-drawn, perfectly proportioned high school heartthrobs, trapped in a frozen, hormonal time machine since first appearing in comic book form in 1942, have arrived at a television viewing platform near you, courtesy of the new series on The CW: Riverdale, which premiered in January. We’ve grown accustomed to the idea of two-dimensional cartoon characters springing to living, breathing, live-action movie life with superhero comics, most recently in Marvel Entertainment’s Logan, the surprisingly inventive twist-up of Old Man Logan (an offshoot of Marvel Comics’ Wolverine series). But, in contrast to the phantasmagorical aspects of superheroes transformed into the flesh (with help from makeup and CGI), life in Riverdale, at least on the high school level, is something else — something at least slightly clued into reality and humanity as we know it. That aspect makes Riverdale both unique and periodically dubious, as the sometimes melodramatic and overly serious sheen and gurgle of the show’s take on Archie’s world rubs against our time-honored understanding of what that world is and should be. These time-trapped teens have the accoutrements of life in the ’10s, with ready social media access and vernacular vocab of the day, Archie’s nuzzling relationship with the often leopard-clad singer Josie (she of the band The Pussycats), and a lesbian kiss as part of Betty and Veronica’s cheerleading audition for the River Vixens. We know that something at least slightly sinister — and running-subplot-driven — is afoot in Riverdale (and Riverdale) from the very first moments of the show’s pilot, called “The River’s Edge” (echoes of the 1986 teen-y thriller River’s Edge). In the first instance of the occasionally and usually vaguely ominous narration, Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) intones,“Our story


The Circle (110 mins., R) Based on Dave Eggers’s 2013 book of the same name, this sci-fi-tinged film stars Emma Watson as Mae, who gets a job at the world’s largest tech company only to find that the corporation is involved in nefarious experiments that threaten privacy, ethics, and personal freedom. It also stars Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, and Bill Paxton, in his last film role. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo Free Fire (90 mins., R) An all-star cast heads up this action comedy about two gangs who meet in a warehouse in Boston for an arms deal. Tension erupts into a shootout.

Disney’s live-action adaptation of its animated classic dazzles, enchants, and charms just as it did more than 20 years ago. As Belle, Emma Watson perfectly encapsulates the complexities of a “funny girl” yearning for adventure outside of her provincial village where the hyper-masculine Gaston (Luke Evans) chases her every move. Her deliberate imprisonment in the Beast’s (Dan Stevens) castle to save her father (Kevin Kline) takes Belle on a whimsical adventure filled with singing dressers, storytelling teapots, and dancing feather dusters. This is a delightful, magical film that hopefully inspires a new generation of Belles unafraid to do the right thing, seek adventure,

a&e | film & TV CoNT’d FRom p. 57 and love beyond what meets the eye. (SM) Camino Real/Fiesta 5 Born in China (76 mins., G) After the success of March of  of the Penguins (2005), Disney decided to reintroguins duce animal films to its repertoire and in 2009 released Earth. Born in China is Disneynature’s latest offering and is visually stunning, humorous, heartwarming, and educational. John Krasinski narrates the stories of animals living throughout the wild expanse of China, including a snow leopard and her cubs, whose survival is fraught with hardship and tragedy; an adolescent golden snub-nosed monkey who leaves his family for the company of the group’s other disenfranchised males; and a giant panda and her cub who spends much of her days accidently rolling down leafstrewn hills. With beauty and compassion, the film shows the complexities of the animal world— world from familial bonds to the prey-predator dynamic— dynamic and ultimately imparts the valuable, though difficult to confront, lesson of the circle of life. (MD) Fiesta 5

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/Fiesta 5

O Colossal (110 mins., R) In Colossal Colossal, Nacho Vigalondo, the Spanish director known for sci-fi thrillers Timecrimes (2007) and Open Windows (2014), manipulates the kaijū genre by humanizing the monster through its protagonist, Gloria (Anne Hathaway), an unemployed alcoholic who moves back to her small hometown after being kicked out by her New York City boyfriend. When an uncanny series of events begins to unfold, Gloria believes she has control of a monster terrorizing Seoul, South Korea. This enigmatic Hollywood picture is easily one of the more poignant films of 2017, proving once again that any genre can be repurposed into dynamic storytelling reflective of our modern world. (SM)

O Get Out (103 mins., R) Director Jordan Peele’s terrifying debut horror flick takes the genre to a new level, playing with themes outside of the traditional blood, guts, and shrieks of terror from unsuspecting victims. From the beginning, its protagonist, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), is on edge. 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) Fiesta 5 Gifted (101 mins., PG-13) Chris Evans stars as a single man raising his 7-year-old niece, Mary, who turns out to be a mathematical prodigy. Rather than allow her to go to a school for gifted children, he sends Mary to public school so she can experience a “normal” childhood. Fairview/Metro 4

O Going in Style

(96 mins., PG-13)

Zach Braff may be best known for his role as John Michael “J.D.” Dorian in the long-running sitcom Scrubs, but he is also a deft director, to which his latest film Going in Style attests. The heist movie stars Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin as three lifelong friends who face destitution when their pensions are canceled and so decide to rob the offending bank. Theodore Melfi’s (Hidden Figures) script is tight and clever, and Braff’s pacing of the film keeps it engaging from start to finish. If you’re looking for a smart, entertaining film, Going in Style is a must-see. (MD) Camino RealPaseo Nuevo

Lost City of Z

O The Lost City of Z

(136 mins., PG-13)

Although ridiculous is the word I would use to describe this iteration of the popular Furious franchise, that doesn’t mean I didn’t thoroughly enjoy it. In fact, it was what I was counting on given the increasing preposterousness of each film. While there is still plenty of car action, the plot has expanded to include, among other vehicles, a decommissioned, remote-controlled Russian submarine, which, at one point, breaches through an iced-over lake like an orca picking off penguins. Brilliant! Though not the best of the franchise’s releases, the delightfully implausible action sequences, beautiful locations, and cast chemistry make for an absurdly entertaining experience. (MD) Camino Real/Metro 4

The Promise (132 mins., PG-13) Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Le Bon star in this historical drama, which takes place in a small Armenian town at the fall of the Ottoman Empire, about a medical student, an American journalist, and an Armenian raised in Paris who become involved in a love triangle. Camino Real/Plaza de Oro

Raw (99 mins., R) This French-Belgian-made horror film tells the tale of a vegetarian, Justine, who undergoes a hazing ritual when she starts veterinary college that involves eating rabbit kidneys, which awakens an insatiable craving to consume fresh, raw meat. Camino Real

(140 mins., PG-13)

In this subtly thoughtful and powerful movie, English explorer Colonel Percival Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) sets out to search for a mysterious city in the Amazon rainforest. As with many period pieces, it’s a bit dull in the pacing, even though it’s based on the no doubt adventuresome disappearance of said explorer in the 1920s. But even if it’s a tad slow, it’s the kind of film that unfolds and rewards better in hindsight. With a Spielberg-like wonderment at the awes and horrors of the Amazon and an unusually wise script, the movie tackles themes of colonialism, the European underestimation of the Native Americans, and the journey of life itself.

The story— story based on Lissa Evans’s novel about the production of a British propaganda film during World War II and, more importantly, one woman’s role in making it successful— successful triumphs in making you feel just about every emotion while watching the film. The movie struggles with its themes and plots during its third act, but the emotional bond the film has earned for its characters carries it through to the end. (JT) Paseo Nuevo

Unforgettable (100 mins., R) Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl star in this thriller about a pathologically jealous woman (Heigl) who torments the new wife (Dawson) of her ex-husband. Fairview/Metro 4

O Your Name.

Paseo Nuevo

The Fate of the Furious

Phoenix Forgotten (80 mins., PG-13) On March 13, 1997, thousands of people reported seeing mysterious lights in the night sky over several Arizona cities. This psychological horror film uses a documentary style — including fictional “unseen footage”— footage” to tell the story of three teens who went missing after seeing the lights. Metro 4

(106 mins., PG)

On its surface, Your Name. is a formulaic teen movie about identity, growing pains, and a bit of body-switching for good measure. But just a short way into Makoto Shinkai’s anime hit, the heavy emotion and mystery of love and time come spilling out of watercolor landscapes so gorgeous they take your breath away. We watch as the inexplicably entwined lives of Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi) and Taki (Ryûnosuke Kamiki) fill up and break apart like their ping-ponging hearts and hormones. The plot, like its subject matter, is hard to hold onto at times, but that feels like the point. Life is beautiful and messy and goes in directions reason can’t follow. Mitsuha and Taki are on that journey together, and it’s a treat to join them. (TH) Fiesta 5 The Zookeeper’s Wife (127 mins., PG-13)

Author Diane Ackerman’s nonfiction book comes to the big screen and stars Jessica Chastain as Antonina and Johan Heldenbergh as Jan, the real-life couple who helped save hundreds of Jews when Germany invaded Poland during WWII. Plaza de Oro

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of apRil 27 CANCER


(June 21-July 22): Apparently, a lot of kids in the U.K. don’t like to eat vegetables. In response, food researchers in that country marketed a variety of exotic variations designed to appeal to their palate. The new dishes included chocolate-flavored carrots, pizza-flavored corn, and cheese-and-onion-flavored cauliflower. I don’t recommend that you get quite so extreme in trying to broaden your own appeal, Cancerian. But see if you can at least reach out to your potential constituency with a new wrinkle or fresh twist. Be imaginative as you expand the range of what your colleagues and clientele have to choose from.

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): I have misgivings when I witness bears riding bicycles or tigers dancing on their hind legs or Aries people wielding diplomatic phrases and making careful compromises at committee meetings. While I am impressed by the disciplined expression of primal power, I worry for the soul of the creature that is behaving with such civilized restraint. So here’s my advice for you in the coming weeks: Take advantage of opportunities to make deals and forge win-win situations. But also keep a part of your fiery heart untamed. Don’t let people think they’ve got you all figured out.



(Apr. 20-May 20): “One of the advantages of being disorderly,” said author A.A. Milne, “is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.” I wouldn’t normally offer this idea as advice to a methodical dynamo like you. But my interpretation of the astrological omens compels me to override my personal theories about what you need. I must suggest that you consider experimenting with jaunty, rambunctious behavior in the coming days, even if it generates some disorder. The potential reward? Exciting discoveries, of course.

(July 23-Aug. 22): In speaking about the arduous quest to become one’s authentic self, writer Thomas Merton used the example of poets who aspire to be original but end up being imitative.“Many poets never succeed in being themselves,” he said.“They never get around to being the particular poet they are intended to be by God. They never become the person or artist who is called for by all of the circumstances of their individual lives. They waste their years in vain efforts to be some other poet. They wear out their minds and bodies in a hopeless endeavor to have somebody else’s experiences or write somebody else’s poems.” I happen to believe that this is a problem for non-poets, as well. Many of us never succeed in becoming ourselves. Luckily for you, Leo, in the coming weeks and months you will have an unprecedented chance to become more of who you really are. To expedite the process, work on dissolving any attraction you might have to acting like someone other than yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): According to my reading of the astrological omens, it’s time for you to take a break from the magic you have been weaving since your birthday in 2016. That’s why I’m suggesting that you go on a brief sabbatical. Allow your deep mind to fully integrate the lessons you’ve been learning and the transformations you have undergone over the past 11 months. In a few weeks, you’ll be ready to resume where you left off. For now, though, you require breathing room. Your spiritual batteries need time to recharge. The hard work you’ve done should be balanced by an extended regimen of relaxed playtime.

Homework: What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever done? Testify! Go to and click on “Email Rob.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): On numerous occasions, French acrobat Charles Blondin walked across a tightrope that spanned the gorge near Niagara Falls. His cable was three and a quarter inches in diameter, 1,100 feet long, and 160 feet above the Niagara River. Once he made the entire crossing by doing back flips and somersaults. Another time he carried a small stove on his back, stopped midway to cook an omelet, and ate the


meal before finishing. Now would be an excellent time for you to carry out your personal equivalent of his feats, Virgo. What daring actions have you never tried before even though you’ve been sufficiently trained or educated to perform them well?

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I’d love to see you increase the number of people, places, and experiences you love, as well as the wise intensity with which you love them. From an astrological perspective, now is an excellent time to upgrade your appreciation and adoration for the whole world and everything in it. To get you in the mood, I’ll call your attention to some unfamiliar forms of ardor you may want to pursue: eraunophilia, an attraction to thunder and lightning; cymophilia, a fascination with waves and waviness; chorophilia, a passion for dancing; asymmetrophilia, a zeal for asymmetrical things; sapiophilia, an erotic enchantment with intelligence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Ready for some subterranean journeys? They may not involve literal explorations of deep caverns and ancient tunnels and underground streams. You may not stumble upon lost treasure and forgotten artifacts and valuable ruins. But then again, you might. At the very least, you will encounter metaphorical versions of some of the above. What mysteries would you love to solve? What secrets would be fun to uncover? What shadows would you be excited to illuminate?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You could go online and buy an antique Gothic throne or a psychedelic hippie couch to spruce up your living room. For your bathroom, you could get a Japanese “wonder toilet,” complete with a heated seat, automated bidet, and white noise generator. Here’s another good idea: You could build a sacred crazy altar in your bedroom where you will conduct rituals of playful liberation. Or how about this? Acquire a kit that enables you to create spontaneous poetry on your refrigerator door using tiny magnets with evocative words written on them. Can you think of other ideas to revitalize your home environment? It’s high time you did so.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Why would you guzzle mindclouding moonshine when you will eventually get a chance to sip a heart-reviving tonic? Why spoil your appetite by loading up on non-nutritious hors d’oeuvres when a healthy feast will be available sooner than you imagine? I advise you to suppress your compulsion for immediate gratification. It may seem impossible for you to summon such heroic patience, but I know you can. And in the long run, you’ll be happy if you do.



(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Among America’s 50 states, Texas has the third-highest rate of teenage pregnancies. Uncoincidentally, sex education in Texas is steeped in ignorance. Most of its high schools offer no teaching about contraception other than to advise students to avoid sex. In the coming weeks, Pisces, you can’t afford to be as deprived of the truth as those kids. Even more than usual, you need accurate information that’s tailored to your precise needs, not fake news or ideological delusions or self-serving propaganda. Make sure you gather insight and wisdom from the very best sources. That’s how you’ll avoid behavior that’s irrelevant to your life goals. That’s how you’ll attract experiences that serve your highest good.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “You’ll always be my favorite whatif.” Many years ago, I heard that phrase whispered in my ear. It came from the mouth of a wonderful-butimpossible woman. We had just decided that it was not a good plan, as we had previously fantasized, to run away and get married at Angkor Wat in Cambodia and then spend the next decade being tour guides who led travelers on exotic getaways to the world’s sacred sites. “You’ll always be my favorite what-if” was a poignant but liberating moment. It allowed us to move on with our lives and pursue other dreams that were more realistic and productive. I invite you to consider triggering a liberation like that sometime soon.

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. 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 05/25/2017 AT 9:00 am Dept: 5 Room: located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, California. 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. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to

the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE‑154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250.
