When he’s not selling tickets at the Granada Theatre or Lobero box offices, Gabriel Tanguay can be found drinking black coffee at The French Press while writing melancholic poetry or a review of one of the classical concerts he frequents around Santa Barbara. Tanguay also plays the guitar, writes music, has a penchant for pessimism, and is an avid astrologer. With much respect for classically trained musicians, he’s always been awed by the humility shown by the best among them.

Limón Pushed to Support Sanctuary Bill


lthough a couple hundred activists

marched on May 1 to celebrate International Workers’ Day, the crowd felt small compared to recent protests that have packed downtown streets. Central Coast Alliance United for A Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) organizer Frank Rodriguez thought turnout was impacted by work schedules and growing fears about Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. As California plans to fight President Trump’s immigration initiatives, CAUSE has called on Assemblymember Monique Limón to support SB 54, known as the“sanctuary state” bill. The law would considerably limit area law enforcement’s cooperation with ICE officials, barring “serious or violent felonies.” But Limón —who has been visible at Know Your Rights events and is the daughter of immigrants— has remained silent as the bill has approached the Assembly floor. Law enforcement has been highly critical of the bill. When asked,

a spokesperson said such opposition has not prevented Limón from supporting the bill, adding that her practice is to wait until the language is final and she receives feedback from her constituents. In related news, hundreds of marchers set out from La Playa Stadium on April 29 and walked to Shoreline Park and back for the nation- ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER MARCH: Pavement-pounders hit the streets for wide People’s Climate International Workers’ Day (top) and the People’s Climate March.

Beware of the Grannies New State Law Simplifies Permitting by Kelsey Brugger anta Barbara planners are not so quietly


panicking about the next wave of Airbnbesque neighborhood impacts—legalized granny flats. In January, a new state law forced cities and counties to accelerate the permits for permanent rentals. Housing experts say this new law could, in theory, double the density in the City of Santa Barbara. In practice, it likely won’t. But it could be significant. Since January, the city has received 38 applications to build what are known in planning jargon as accessory dwelling units, or ADUs. They could be anything from a converted garage to a cabana and even a mobile home could qualify (but RVs would not). Another 17 preliminary applications are in the queue. By contrast, in the past 24 years the city has permitted just 16 ADUs.

So far, proposals have come in all shapes and sizes, scattered mostly in the Upper Eastside, San Roque, and Lower Riviera. The state says they can be up to 1,200 square feet— roughly the size of a roomy two- or three-bedroom apartment — and include a bath and kitchenette. To qualify, applicants must reside on the property. They must also provide one parking space per unit, unless the lot is within half a mile from public transit or a block from a ride-sharing location. Several of the 38 applications are close to approval, said City Planner Renee Brooke. “The state law is very permissive.” Once submitted, the city has just 120 days to approve or deny an application.While municipalities have little authority to say no, they are granted some discretion, such as prohibiting units in highfire-danger areas along the Riviera or parts

of Mission Canyon. The arduous public hearing component of design review is eliminated, except in the Coastal Zone, which roughly stretches between the seashore and Highway 101 as well as along Cliff Drive. Brooke said the City Council would address the matter this summer. Neighborhood preservationists worry the new law will immensely change the character of the community, putting more parked cars on already crowded streets. County Supervisor Das Williams, who supported the state bill when he was an assemblymember, said the crucial piece of the debate is that “people are being squeezed out of Santa Barbara by rents that are skyrocketing.” “The whole reason the Legislature weighed in on this was local jurisdictions have failed to address the housing crisis, and this is one of cont’d on page 15 É

news Briefs LAW & DISORDER Authorities are searching for the man who robbed the Carpinteria branch of Montecito Bank & Trust on 4/27. He’s described as heavyset, middle-aged, Caucasian or Hispanic, 50-60 years of age, and 5‘9”-5‘11” tall. He was wearing a black T-shirt, blue jeans, and sunglasses, and his baseball cap said “Zoo York.” The man handed a teller a note demanding money and was given an undisclosed amount of cash. Members of the public with information are encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 681-4150. Two weeks into a trial that was supposed to go through May, Aubrey Wadford pled guilty on 4/26 to the second-degree murder of his ex-girlfriend Angela Laskey in October 2014. Wadford was initially charged with first-degree murder and faced a possible prison sentence of 25 years to life, but the prosecution and defense reached an agreement on second-degree murder in exchange for a reduced sentence. With the added charge of use of a deadly weapon, Wadford agreed to a sentence of 16 years to life.

CITY The regulatory fate of oversized vehicles — a designation that includes “high-profile vehicles” such as the Mercedes Sprinter, as well as RVs — within city limits will be hammered out at a public forum at 5:30 p.m. on 5/3 at City Hall. Santa Barbara City Attorney Ariel Calonne hopes to unveil the draft regulations by which the city’s strict “No Parking” ordinance will be enforced. Since last November, it’s been illegal for RVs or other oversized vehicles to park on city streets, though enforcement of the new ordinance has been delayed pending the development of certain exceptions for visitors and people who rely on such vehicles for their jobs. The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra (SBCO) is suspending operations for the 2017-18 season while its Board of Directors contemplates the organization’s ongoing financial viability. Led by Music Director Heiichiro Ohyama since 1983, the SBCO has earned a reputation as one of the finest chamber orchestras on the West Coast, attracting top international soloists and enlisting some of the best musicians in Southern California to its ranks. The orchestra’s 2016-17 season concludes on 5/16 at the Lobero Theatre with acclaimed pianist Alessio Bax performing Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A Minor.

GOLETA Goleta’s Islamic Center hosted a ceremony of thanks on 4/30 and praised the support it’s received from the interfaith community, as the Muslim congregation’s first mosque is starting to take shape after breaking ground in March. The two-story structure at 302 North Los Carneros Road won’t be completed for about another 10 months, and the ceremony had members of several churches and synagogues, as well as former congressmember Lois Capps and Goleta City Councilmember Michael Bennett, gather at the cont’d on page 10 É

In its second test in a week, Vandenberg Air Force Base launched an unarmed Minuteman III missile in the early morning of 5/3. “The purpose of the ICBM test launch program is to validate and verify the effectiveness, readiness, and accuracy of the weapon system,” Air Force Global Strike Command said in a statement. Santa Barbara’s Nuclear Age Peace Foundation criticized both launches as illtimed, considering escalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. “This is a very dangerous game we are playing,” said David Krieger, president of the nonprofit peace organization.

With such unimpressive numbers, Adam said the project had to have been financed by “The Bank of Unicorns and Rainbows.” Supervisor Das Williams countered that the project was a success according to the standards in place when it was proposed in 2010. It also saves the county more than $1 million on its energy bill. The project has surpassed expectations, producing nearly a million more kilowatts than projected and saving the county about $1.2 million in electricity costs.

County mental-health administrators have signed a $1.6 million contract with private medical service Traditions Behavioral Health (TBH) to provide six temporary full-time psychiatrists devoted to acute and crisis care over the next year. Last year, the county contracted with TBH to provide just one psychiatrist. Nationally, there’s a shortage of new psychiatrists entering the field to balance the exodus of those retiring. In that context, the pay offered by Santa Barbara County has lagged behind what many psychiatrists can make. As a result, only seven of the county’s budgeted 24 medical professional positions are currently occupied by civil service psychiatrists. The supervisors also approved three additional contracts — totaling another $1.5 million — for additional psychiatric services to help fill that void.

OpEN MIKE: After endorsing countless City Council candidates over the years, retired Sgt. Mike McGrew is now thinking about running for office himself.

Make Your Reservation Today!

The ‘Force’ reTIreS Mike McGrew Stepping Down After 31 Years with SBPD by Nick Welsh n his 31 years as a Santa Barbara city cop,


Sergeant Mike McGrew became a force of nature not just on the streets but inside City Hall. For more than 20 of those years, McGrew—laconic, ferocious, hilarious, and implacable—ran the police union, backed countless political candidates, and famously waged war not just against “the bad guys” but various mayors, city administrators, and police chiefs with whom he so famously feuded. McGrew—also described as blunt, confrontational, and media-savvy—won an award his rookie year for tackling a samuraisword-wielding man on State Street, starred in reality TV highlighting the department, lost a teenaged son to cancer, struggled with addiction issues of his own, found God, and, most recently, struggled with his own cancer. The side effects of that treatment—numbness of hands and feet—persuaded McGrew it was time to retire, effective last week. He is, however, hardly disappearing. McGrew is currently entertaining thoughts of running for City Council from the Fifth District. Were he to jump in, he’d run against Eric Friedman — backed by the Democratic Party, and aide to former county supervisor and now Congressmember Salud Carbajal. McGrew confirmed only that there’s been a lot of discussion and that he’s “still praying on this one.” Regardless, McGrew said he will function as a departmental chaplain and that he’s helped launch the Santa Barbara Worship Center, where he leads services every other Sunday at the Louise Lowry Davis Center. In addition, he’s finishing a book combining several G-rated cop stories and his religious awakening. McGrew is also part of an Orange County–based ministry that specializes in “casting demons out,” a gift he said he stumbled upon while praying over a homeless man who appeared to be bleeding to death on the street. “After we started, all these distractions started happening all at once,” he recalled. “Radios, phones all started going off, and the smell of death was everywhere.” McGrew said he remains very much involved with the At Ease program he helped start to counsel law enforcement officers and

first responders experiencing job-related post-traumatic stress. Such services, he said, are confidential. “No one wants to tell the boss they’re on the verge of meltdown,” he said.“A lot of people use it. It saves lives.” McGrew’s father was the city fire chief, and his uncle also held an executive position in the department. McGrew became a cop, he said, because he wanted to be a firefighter but there were no openings. Shortly after joining the force in 1986, he encountered that man with the samurai sword. That’s when Pat McElroy — now city fire chief and McGrew’s longtime friend and political coconspirator—first saw McGrew in action. McElroy was driving down State Street with his then-pregnant wife. He fully expected bullets to start flying. “In any other city, the guy gets shot for sure,” McElroy said. Instead, he watched McGrew tackle the man without incident. McGrew said he had started to “pull the trigger” when he saw his opportunity and took it. “I was fortunate I never had to kill anybody,” he said. “When you were in a jam, you definitely wanted Mike on your side,” said McElroy. Since the early 1990s, McGrew and McElroy led their respective unions in what became known as the “guns and hoses” coalition. They were among the most politically influential behind-the-scenes power brokers in town. Where McElroy picked his political battles and took pains not to make them personal, McGrew drew his battle lines in black and white; his take-no-prisoners battles with former city administrator Jim Armstrong, former police chief Cam Sanchez, and former mayor Marty Blum became the stuff of political folklore. McGrew said he was born with “a warrior’s spirit” and, for one, couldn’t back down when he saw Great Recession staffing cuts that he felt compromised officer safety. If he runs for council, toes stepped on in the past could possibly be raised to trip him up. Either way, McGrew said he’s stepping down with more love in his heart than anger. “It’s a new season, a new chapter,” he said, laughing in equal parts relief and disbelief. “I’m still standing,” he said.“After everything, I’m still standing.” n

witnesses say that when Davies Kabogoza fell from his stand-up paddleboard near the mouth of the Santa Barbara Harbor, he sank, resurfaced momentarily, and then went under again and never came up, according to Public Information Officer Kevin Corbett of the Santa Barbara City Fire Department. After an unsuccessful 40-minute search by City Fire and Harbor Patrol rescue swimmers — who searched the murky harbor floor while breathhold diving — Kabogoza’s body was recovered about 30 feet underwater by members of the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Dive Team, who happened to be training in the area. Kabogoza was wearing a belt-pack floatation device, but “it was not deployed,” Corbett said. Kabogoza was with a female friend at the time, who was nearby in a kayak when he Davies Kabogoza fell; she could not be reached before print deadline. The 30-year-old Uganda native arrived in the U.S. in late 2010 with the help of the Sports Outreach Institute, a Christian initiative to help impoverished countries through athletics and job training.

ust hours after President

Donald Trump announced he would open the door to offshore oil drilling in federal waters — including the Santa Barbara Channel — State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (pictured) asserted that she would slam it shut. Via executive order on April 28, Trump reversed an Obama administration moratorium on oil and gas drilling on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), including the Pacific seafloor. Jackson responded with SB 188, legislation that would essentially prohibit the development in state waters of any infrastructure needed for new oil development, effectively preventing oil drilled in federal waters from being transported to land. “Why should we go back to the dirty, dangerous, and destructive policies of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s?” Jackson said, calling Trump’s order “a step backward.” Jackson’s bill would bolster the California Coastal Sanctuary Act that already bans oil and gas leasing. But there are a few exceptions to the 1994 law. For years, the oil company Sunset Exploration has sought to take advantage of one exception by proposing to drill at Vandenberg Air Force Base by a method known as slant drilling, wherein the mainland-based operation would insert 12

a giant straw to suck crude from offshore. Meanwhile, oil experts say environmental opposition might not even be necessary to stop oil drilling. Given slouching prices, limited resources, and deep-rooted opposition to drilling on the Central Coast, “Oil companies are not making a big push to do that [drilling] in the first place,” said Peter Cantle, the director of Santa Barbara County’s energy division. In the meantime, Kevin Slagle of Western States Petroleum Association said each company would have to decide “how to proceed.” Given the atmosphere against Big Oil in California, there is no question that’ll be an uphill battle. —Kelsey Brugger

Household hours: Saturday: 9 am- 3 pm Sunday: 11 am- 3 pm WATER BuffALO NuMBER ONE: County Water’s Tom Fayram is pushing a new contract governing how water is taken out of Lake Cachuma.

More State Water? County Water Agency Aims for Better Reliability


by Nick Welsh he last time Tom Fayram walked on

water, Lake Cachuma was just a mud puddle. Today, Cachuma is half full, thanks to this season’s extravagant deluge. But even amid this newfound aquatic abundance, Fayram — as the county’s official water czar — might find the ability to walk on water an occupational necessity in the months to come, given the challenges ahead. At Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, Fayram was gently pummeled for presenting a highly preliminary report on a proposal to allow Santa Barbara County water agencies to secure an additional 12,000 acre-feet a year in state water entitlements. As Fayram told it, the deal — which would cost $30 million — would not be used as the basis for new development but to increase the reliability of current state water deliveries, which vary dramatically from year to year. It would also be used, he explained, to create a “drought buffer.” Longtime critics of the State Water Project — Carolee Krieger, Arve Sjovold, and Marc Chytilo — pounced, arguing the additional supply would enable water agencies, such as Santa Maria and the Carpinteria Valley water districts, to sell their more expensive state water allocations to developers trying to build along the Gaviota Coast or in Goleta. Carpinteria’s district, as Krieger testified, has been trying to market up to 1,000 acre-feet of its state water and has been in discussions until a few weeks ago with developers of Shelby Ranch in Goleta. Before that, Carp water had been in similar discussions with the owners of Gaviota’s Bixby Ranch. Neither went anywhere. Supervisor Das Williams expressed serious concern about the growth-inducing effects of such water wheeling, which prompted Supervisor Steve Lavagnino to express shock that water — or its absence — would be used as a tool to limit growth.“It also sustains life,” Lavagnino said. Williams noted that new water supplies have always been used to fuel growth. “To ignore this,” Williams said, “would be to ignore the entire history of Southern California.” The proposal to secure additional state water is still very much in its infancy; envi-

ronmental review is only just starting. The supervisors, in fact, had to green-light that process. Williams pushed for, and got, language requiring that the supervisors be notified of any future efforts by any county water agency to peddle state water to private developers. On another front, the supervisors approved Fayram’s request that the County Water Agency notify the federal Bureau of Reclamation — which built and owns Lake Cachuma — that the county wants to commence negotiations to renew the contract for the dam, which expires in 2020. This is likewise a very preliminary move for a process that promises to be very long and very fraught. The County Water Agency was the signatory on the original 1948 contract but actually neither gets nor delivers any water from the dam. Several of the five water agencies that do receive water take a dim view of Fayram playing the lead role in a bargaining process for which there isn’t even a table they could sit at. The City of Santa Barbara, for example, demanded not just a table but a seat that afforded voting rights commensurate with the money they spend buying water from the lake. A water district in Santa Ynez demanded that everything be put on hold pending the development of a process giving the water agencies their due voice. Underscoring what has been a heated debate about process has been Fayram’s conviction that only the County Water Agency has the broad regional view. In the recent drought, he’s complained, water districts pursued their individual self-interests at the expense of the lake’s long-term water supply. Given siltation of the lake, climate change, and endangered steelhead issues, Fayram has argued that water districts will be forced to cut way back on how much water they take from the lake. Without getting into detail, he assured the supervisors that all stakeholders would be involved. They gave Fayram the green light to begin contract talks. “I may be an optimist or maybe just a fool,” he said afterward, “but I think we can get through n this together.”

NEWS of the WEEK

fACE-Off: County supervisors Janet Wolf and Das Williams — both liberal progressives — are known for their different public styles. Wolf tends to be very process-oriented, while Williams is known as an ambitious political fighter. They clashed Tuesday over library funding.

Library Wars Break out

supervisors Das Williams and Janet Wolf erupted in a public argument. But no one knew it’d be about libraries. In 2006, the two liberal Democrats ran against each other for 2nd District supervisor. Although they made amends, some tension has remained unresolved. It boiled to the surface on Tuesday over a dispute about library funding allocations, service areas, and government processes. Wolf essentially accused Williams of cutting Goleta out of its traditional library funding — and giving it to the branches in his district — while Williams charged Goleta with getting more than its fair share for years. The Library Advisory Committee decided last month to increase the fees each of the branches pays for administrative services over the next three years. But after discovering the Goleta branch has been assigned to cover areas it likely shouldn’t, such as parts of Mission Canyon and Hope Ranch, the committee recommended the funding formula be revised. “I don’t think

the least painful ways to address [it],” he continued. “I would say what we should do as a community is try to make it work.” He added that the fear that the city will lose all control is unwarranted — for now. There are currently two state bills to further encourage second units with more restraint on local discretion. Last month at the Montecito Planning Commission, architect Jock Sewall painted a rosy picture of in-laws moving into the pool houses at Montecito homes. “It’s just a wonderful thing to be able to congregate,” said Sewall, who is running full-page ads in area newspapers. “What people need are community and privacy. It seems to serve a need for a lot of people in Montecito.” Members of the Montecito Planning Commission seemed highly skeptical, however.“This could double, perhaps, the number of customers you have,” Planning Commissioner J’Amy Brown (pictured) pointedly told Montecito fire officials, adding it prob-

it takes high-level math for us to know Goleta does not serve nearly 80 percent of the unincorporated [zone that includes the South Coast and Santa Ynez],”Williams said. But Wolf argued the Goleta branch indeed serves everyone from the edge of the City of Santa Barbara to the Gaviota Coast, and this sudden hit was “unfair.” She explained the boundaries were drawn before Goleta became its own city in 2002. “All I’m saying is, do not do that this year,” she said. Goleta Councilmember Michael Bennett acknowledged there might be room to negotiate but added Goleta has spent considerable money on the library’s capital costs. Wolf sought to keep the process status quo until a consultant can study the number of people each branch serves, but no one agreed. Williams is not known for supporting the status quo. He proposed the library system adopt this new formula, which allocates $90,000 less to Goleta, and fund a study. The motion passed 3-1, with Wolf dissenting and Supervisor Peter Adam abstaining. —Kelsey Brugger pau l we llm a n


t was only a matter of time until county

ably wouldn’t. “Your response times in my neighborhood are just outside the limits. How are you going to take this extra impact on?” Likewise, Brown and the other commissioners were astonished when Montecito water manager Nick Turner claimed granny flats counterintuitively reduce water usage as they cut into landscaped square-footage. So far, six applications have been submitted in Montecito and three in other unincorporated county areas. The Board of Supervisors will also review the issue later this summer. n

A Dog Agog

BEER AND OIL DON’T MIX: It used to be that

Santa Barbara ruling elites had a modicum of common sense. Say what you want about the landed gentry, mouths into which silver spoons were born, and, of course, the white patriarchal privilege thing, but those snugly sinecured in their valley ranchos and behind vaulted hedges knew a thing or two about maintaining the status quo. I was reminded of this last week when President Donald Trump issued yet another executive order, this one threatening — at least hypothetically — to open up the Pacific coast to further oil development. Statewide enviros quickly held a DefCon Four fire drill in response, and Santa Barbara’s State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson introduced a bill that would effectively declare all state waters off-limits to any of the infrastructure needed to further drill in federal waters. For enviros who have traditionally insisted upon beltsand-suspenders vigilance where offshore oil is concerned, Jackson’s bill has moved us to bulletproof vests and bomb shelters. As a rhetorical gesture, Jackson’s bill sends Trump a finely wrought, one-fingered salute. But given how her other anti-oil bills have fared, I don’t see this one getting anywhere. That’s probably okay given the limited nature of the actual threat. Only by staring into the sun can the language of that order be construed to apply to the Pacific coast’s Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), or more colloquially, our beach. That order was designed

to undo actions taken by Barack Obama in the last days of his administration making vast swaths of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans off-limits to new oil and gas exploration. Nowhere in that order is any language opening up the coast of Florida to such exploration, an interesting coincidence given the frequency of Trump’s visits to Mar-a-Lago. Also nowhere in Trump’s new order is there any reference to the Pacific. But then again, nothing in the order says tracts of the Pacific OCS cannot be considered in the future for offshore oil exploration. To the extent there’s anything remotely specific in Trump’s order pertaining to our area, it’s that the potential for oil and gas development must be considered when deciding to designate any new areas a national monument. Such language could weigh against the creation of a Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary — now under discussion — but I’ve never

regarded that plan as a serious possibility. Conspicuously missing in action have been the landed gentry who in years past — long before the birth of the modern environmental movement — played a major role fighting back against offshore oil … and effectively, too. Contrary to popular journalistic fiction, Santa Barbara’s hate-hate affair with Big Oil didn’t start with the Oil Spill of 1969. Way back in 1954 — 15 years before The Spill — it was the blue bloods and landed gentry who first conspired to stop offshore oil development. That’s the year former mayor

Jack Rickard got a bill passed declaring oil

development off-limits for a stretch of Santa Barbara coast 16 miles long. Rickard — a card-carrying Republican who would later be appointed a superior court judge by thengovernor Ronald Reagan, now a Republican deity — was as wily an operator as Santa Barbara has ever seen. He got the bill passed by convening a hearing of the state legislature right here in Santa Barbara, taking the attendees out on a blissful tour of the channel, wining and dining them in fine fashion, and then twisting arms, buttonholing, and exploiting his old-school connections for what they were worth. Back then, Rickard and the Powers that Be, Republicans and Democrats, had decided Santa Barbara’s economic future lay in the expansion of UCSB (then a fledgling UC campus) corporate think tanks, and enterprises that could be described as smokeless industry. In this scenario, oil development, very conspicuously, was flat-out bad for business. In their own inimical ways, Rickard and Jackson each got it right. For all the oil out there, it’s strictly a short-term proposition. Recent estimates suggest that if you maxed out the channel for 25 years, you’d get enough oil to supply the United States for 22 days. By contrast, if you increase the fuel efficiency standards by just .01 percent, you’d “produce” more oil than that in energy savings. In this context, I was sorry to learn that a family trust on which Adam Firestone is a trustee — Rock Hollow 2013 Trust — donated $250,000 to Trump’s inauguration. Firestone is now most famous for cocreating the popu-

lar, successful Firestone Walker Brewing Company right here in River City. Firestone is the bear seen on the company label, and Walker the lion. He’s also the son of Brooks Firestone — scion of the Firestone tire and rubber empire which used to all but own the nation of Liberia — who helped pioneer wine production in the Santa Ynez Valley. Brooks represented Santa Barbara in Sacramento in both the Assembly and Senate and later served a few terms as 3rd district supervisor. Though Brooks was the epitome of the rock-ribbed Republican plutocrat, he was remarkably accessible. He was also sane and moderate. Perhaps that’s why he was savaged far worse by the Republican right wing than he ever was by Democrats. I don’t pretend to know Adam or why he might have made such a lavish gift to the inauguration of Donald Trump — even among gazillionaires, $250,000 qualifies as a lot of money — but sanity and moderation rank high among the qualities Trump violently repudiates on a daily basis. It should be noted that Firestone Walker didn’t make the donation. It just happens to share a mailing address with the trust that did. Adam Firestone grew up in the Santa Ynez Valley. I’m guessing that former valley resident and fellow vintner Tom Barrack — who ran Trump’s inaugural committee — might have put the neighborly squeeze on Adam. In an equally neighborly way, he wrote out a check for $250,000. Jack Rickard, I’m certain, would have figured out how to say no. Good thing I drink Guinness. —Nick Welsh

n April 20, I witnessed a terrible thing. A mother duck and her babies were trying to cross the freeway to get to Lake Los Carneros. My family tried to safely stop traffic, but it didn’t work. Only some people stopped, and I had to watch the baby ducks get run over. After seeing this, I was extremely sad. I feel that Goleta needs an animal-crossing bridge for the wildlife to cross the freeway safely. Animals’ homes are being destroyed to make houses and streets for people. So we need our city planners to be aware of the impact that construction will have on our wildlife and consider building safe passages for them. I never want to see baby ducks get run over again! I would like people to drive safely and slow down when driving. I would also like the City of Goleta to build a wildlife bridge for the animals to cross. — Maile Valdez, 10 years old

A Rental on Every Lot


hough this has been creating a buzz in the real estate universe, it has gotten little notice elsewhere, though it fundamentally changes all California neighborhoods. Accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, is the term used in AB 2299, a bill enacted in 2016, for second dwelling units on a lot. AB 2299 requires—not allows but requires — local governments to allow ADUs in all zones. If you thought you bought and lived in a single-family zone, that is no longer true. Every lot is now allowed to have two dwelling units.ADUs can be up to 1,200 square feet and do not have to abide by the standard setbacks or parking requirements. If you think your neighborhood is crowded now, it is about to double in density. AB 2299 is a product of the California real estate industry in a bid to drive home prices even higher (and of course their profits). With a rental unit, and its income, allowed on every lot, home prices will skyrocket.

Former assemblymember Das Williams (voted for AB 2299), State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (couldn’t be bothered to vote either way), and Gov. Jerry Brown (signed AB 2299 into law) have all turned their backs on the millions who bought homes with the expectation they would remain in single-family zones. AB 2299 robs them of their property rights. Many cities voiced opposition to AB 2299, but Santa Barbara’s was noticeably absent. AB 2299 will mean more people, more traffic, more density, more noise, more trash, less privacy, less security—all in less desirable neighborhoods. If this disturbs you, let your elected representatives know about it, loudly and often. — Brian Kenny, S.B.

Mission Creek Lives On


e are fortunate that Mission Creek still runs through our city [ missioncreekbattle]. After the disastrous flood of January 1914 when bridges and houses were washed away, and witnesses said the creek “roared like a freight train,” there was a proposal to divert Mission Creek somewhere north of the city so that it would follow the course of Arroyo Burro Creek out to the ocean and bypass the city entirely. — Betsy J. Green, S.B.

Jody Lynn Kaufman 07/24/52-04/17/17

Jody Lynn Kaufman, age 64, died on Monday, April 17th, 2017 at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara CA, surrounded by her friends and family. She was born in Minneapolis MN to Michael and Shirley (Danielson) Comstock, and was the second of four children. She graduated from University of MN, where she met and married her husband Scott Kaufman before moving out to Santa Barbara, CA in 1976. She had a long and successful career at UCSB, was active in her Jewish community, and raised a strong and loving family. After retirement, she remained active by volunteering to work with disadvantaged students who needed help with reading and math. She had recently undertaken perhaps her favorite life role, that of a loving, energetic, and hands-on grandma to two adoring little girls. She was smart, fun and humble. She showed her love by caring for and supporting those around her. She gave without asking in return and loved unconditionally. Her family has no words to describe their sudden loss. She will forever be loved and missed - A guiding light extinguished too soon. Her husband Scott, daughter Rachel, son Conner, son-in-law Jordan and granddaughters Ella and Lyla survive her. How could I have come so far? (And always on such dark trails?) I must have traveled by the light Shining from the faces of all those I have loved. - Thomas McGrath

Charles Patterson Collier 09/04/21-04/17/17

istry from the University of California, Berkeley. During World War II, he received his commission in the U.S. Navy and was stationed in Connecticut as a Lieutenant working on submarine navigational systems. During that time, Chuck attended a USO event in New York City and met his love, Barbara, who was a U.S. Navy nurse. After completing their service to their country, Chuck and Bobby relocated to Northern California and then Santa Barbara, which they considered to be paradise on earth and where they raised their two sons, Pete and Matt. Chuck worked as a food technologist with Pea Soup Anderson’s, where he researched and developed food preservation techniques. He eventually pursued his interest in graphic arts and developed a widely used chemical process that enhanced the resolution of color photographs and illustrations in magazines and newspapers across the country. He retired happily from his company, Fluorographic Services, at age 75. Chuck’s wife Bobby, son Pete and four siblings preceded him in death. He left behind his son Matt, daughters-in-law Roberta and Fran, granddaughter Marisa Glisan, sister Martha Trainer, numerous other relatives and countless friends. Chuck was a lifelong leader, jokester, intellectual, big personality, family man, reader, fan of crossword puzzles and Sudokus, and all around great guy. He was an avid tennis player who enjoyed playing three days a week until he hung up his racquet at the age of 88. Chuck was the catalyst for the poker game with his buddies every Thursday night for over 50 years. He also loved to ride through town in his classic Sunbeam Tiger, revving the powerful engine, laughing out loud and peeling out ahead of startled younger drivers when the light changed. He was fond of quoting poetry to his family, especially to make a point that he thought they should learn. People who knew Chuck often say he lived life to the fullest and made others come alive. He found the ultimate life with his Savior on Easter Sunday, the day before he passed away. One who met him during his recent residence at the Villa Santa Barbara remarked that he lit up the room when he walked in, and that it was a pleasure to know this very, very special man. He was sincerely loved, is now missed, and will not be forgotten. Chuck, you will always be in our hearts until we see you again. A celebration of Chuck’s life will be held at a later time..

Charles “Chuck” Collier passed away in peace on April 17, 2017, at Cottage Hospital at the age of 95. He was the third of five children born on September 4, 1921, to William and Mary Collier in Salem, Oregon. He grew up in Marin County and graduated from Tamalpais High School. His higher education resulted in a Master of Science degree in Chem18

David Bariş Miller 05/05/70-03/20/17

Long time Santa Barbara resident, David Bariş Miller, 46, passed away unexpectedly in his home on Monday March 20th, 2017. Born to Nicole (Nihal) Anter and David Carr Miller in Ankara, Turkey on May 5th 1970; David spent his formative years in Austin, Texas and he then moved to Santa Barbara, CA in the early 1990’s. David’s memory is carried on by his wife Hana Fujii Miller, daughter Kaya (7), son Ronan (2), mother Nicole Anter, brothers Chris Anter and Julian ‘Alex’ Bartlett, sister in-law Jennifer Anter, nephew Jackson Anter, his uncle Esat Anter, aunt Serap Anter Ozer, beloved grandmother Jane K. Miller, several loving cousins as well as many close friends and colleagues. For Hana, Kaya and Ronan, the void left with his passing is only softened by the intense love he gave them during his life. Married in the Sunken Garden of the Santa Barbara Courthouse on November 11, 2000, David and Hana’s union (affectionately referred to by many as, Dav-ana) was distinct for both its strength and the profound care they showed to one another. David captured Hana’s heart during college at UCSB and they knew, very early on, that each other was “the one.” He was Hana’s safety net and protector when times got rough, always there to assure her that everything would be OK. She misses his loving, gentle kisses and the constant reminders of love he showed her every minute of every day. The loving father, David was ever present in his children’s lives reading countless bedtime stories or just being the “silly” parent, ready with a smile and encouraging words for both Kaya and Ronan. As older brother to Chris and Alex, David’s influence was that of both mentor and friend. As role model in their youth, David was a consistent, supportive presence always there to provide guidance. Genuinely interested in their lives, David paid close attention to them providing both with a patient ear and thoughtful advice as they grew up. As Chris remembers, “He really made me feel like he cared deeply about me. He is the reason I am the man I am today.” In their adulthood, he stayed close to both Chris and Alex where they remained loving brothers as well as close friends. David’s relationship with his mother Nicole was marked by the love they had for one another as well as the long professional relationship they developed. As a boy, David was a voracious reader, full of curiosity. Family camping trips and trips to visit family in Turkey fed this love of life and interest in the world. He was the bright star of Nicole’s life from

the day he was born. He became “the man of the house” at a very young age and his loving touch and emotional strength helped sustain Nicole through the difficult times as well brighten her happiest days. After relocating from Texas to California, David would go on to work at the Alternative Copy Shop. His role in the printing industry would mature when Nicole founded Grafikart in 1994 where he served as Senior General Manager for close to 20 years. When Grafikart closed in 2013, he began work at Associated Students UCSB where he met many new colleagues and friends who were immediately struck by his vast knowledge, innovative ideas and quick wit. To his friends, David was uniformly known for his intellect, comedic timing and warmth. Always the reader, he had a strong interest in sports, history and politics; though as many that knew him would come to find, there were few topics that he could not opine on credibly. David’s ever-upbeat attitude served him throughout his life in fostering close friendships while his quick wit, at times off-color sense of humor and love of conversation enriched many a get-together. Generous and compassionate, David never hesitated to step in and help anyone he encountered. Always quick with a smile, David brought sincerity, generosity and affection to all he called a friend. He is profoundly missed by his family, friends and colleagues. Until we meet again. A fund has been established for his beautiful young children and memorial donations may be made at hanamiller-785280..

Robert S. “Bob” Grant 01/26/25-04/13/17

Noted Santa Barbara architect and sailor Robert S. “Bob” Grant passed away comfortably on Thursday, April 13, 2017. Known for his integrity, pragmatism, gentle, self-deprecating sense of humor, and cheshire cat-smile, Bob was a beloved native Santa Barbaran who touched countless lives. Bob was born in Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on January 26, 1925 to Ulysses S. Grant, a civil engineer and surveyor, and Mary (neé Leslie) Grant, who worked in the planning department. Bob joined older brother M. Leslie “Les” Grant in the family’s home on Pueblo St. across from the hospital. The boys attended Garfield Elementary and Santa Barbara Junior High School and lived at the family’s cabin at Painted Cave during the summers when they weren’t working with their father. “In junior high school, if the 1928

Buick pickup was in the driveway, I knew I’d be going out to carry the (surveyor’s) rod with dad,” Bob said. Bob graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1943 where he participated in R.O.T.C., which shuttled him around the country to five different colleges and universities after high school. During a year at the then College of the Pacific in Stockton, he played a season of football under famed coach Amos Alonzo Stagg as a third-string tight end after his roommate encouraged him to try out for the team. Bob’s R.O.T.C. service subsequently earned him the rank of Midshipman in the U.S. Navy and an assignment as a deck officer on the destroyer U.S.S. Henry Hubbard at the conclusion of WWII. He decamped to Los Angeles with his first wife Dorothy (neé Gross) to enter the University of Southern California’s School of Architecture. His time there was interrupted by his being recalled to the Navy and promoted to Lieutenant J.G. to serve as a gunnery officer on the destroyer U.S.S. Nicholas. The couple relocated to Hawaii during the war where their son Steven was born. After being honorably discharged, Bob returned to USC, where his design instructor skipped him ahead a year allowing him to graduate on time in 1954 while earning the program’s Alpha Rho Chi medal awarded for “leadership, service and professional promise” and membership in the architectural honor society Tau Sigma Delta. Bob was hired before he graduated by the internationallyrenowned firm Welton Becket and Associates, which tapped him to serve as a project architect during the construction of the Ford Motor Company’s general offices. During his time there, Bob and Dorothy’s daughter Karen came along. After deciding he wanted to live in a smaller town, he strongly considered moving back to Hawaii, but as he said with self-deprecating humor, “I didn’t see any economic opportunity there.” But Santa Barbara beckoned, and Bob was lured back to town by the local firm Howell and Arendt Architects, where he had worked as an office boy during high school. Not long after he became a partner for what is now known as Arendt, Mosher, Grant Architects. Daughter Julia rounded out the family in 1957. The next five decades would be marked by a name change to Grant, Pederson, Phillips Architects and a prodigious output of primarily commercial and institutional projects. Bob also served as Campus Architect at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. The “Delco Building” (recently refreshed and presently occupied by Flir Systems) is one entry in a notable portfolio that includes the 1978 wing of UCSB’s Davidson Library,, the original U-Cen, Santa Barbara City College’s Interdisciplinary Center, the Santa Barbara YMCA, La Colina Jr. High School, most of Goleta’s elementary schools, Vieja Valley School, portions of Laguna Blanca School, Banyan Elementary in Newbury Park, and many more. Known for detailed, comprehensive plan sets, he also designed the City of Santa Barbara’s Community Development Building where

Pruitt: listen to Your Scientists


Pesticide Harms the Brain, Including Children’s


by John SiSSer and M at t G a r G i u l o very so often, political appointees surprise us

by standing up to special interests and making scientifically sound decisions that put the health and safety of the public and the environment first. Spoiler alert: We are not going to be talking about one of those cases. In the final days of March, while most of us were more invested in our NCAA brackets than federal environmental policy, the newly appointed head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scott Pruitt, announced that the agency would not be banning a toxic pesticide linked to human and environmental health complications. Chlorpyrifos (don’t worry — we have to sound it out, too — klor-pir-i-foss) is a pesticide intended to kill insects on contact by disrupting critical brain function. Though it has been banned from household use in the United States since 2001, chlorpyrifos is still widely applied on agricultural lands nationwide. In 2015, the EPA — the same EPA that Pruitt now heads — moved to permanently ban the pesticide following an assessment that found risk to humans through dietary and drinking water exposure. But Pruitt’s announcement last month retracts this action in an effort to “provide regulatory certainty to the thousands of American farms that rely on chlorpyrifos” and return to “using sound science in decision-making — rather than predetermined results.” Pruitt’s argument that sound science should serve as the foundation of our environmental policy is absolutely correct. Unfortunately, his actions do not match his words. The decision to withdraw the chlorpyrifos ban appears to be rooted more in political promises to reduce regulation than legitimate scientific evidence. You see, the science around chlorpyrifos is sound. There is no shortage of studies linking chlorpyrifos exposure to negative human health effects, such as lower birthweight, tremor, and other neurodevelopment problems in children. And when it comes to its environmental impact, studies showing the pesticide’s effects on other species and their habitats are downright abundant. An EPA assessment of chlorpyrifos’s potential biological effects evaluated more than 1,400 studies on its toxicity to various plants and animals that are endangered, threatened, or candidates for listing under the Endangered Species Act. The results of the assessment are alarming to say the least, showing that chlorpyrifos is likely to negatively affect nearly 97 percent of the species evaluated. That includes 91 species of birds, 188 species of fish, and 87 species of mammals. Amphibians have been particularly hard-hit. Recent amphibian population declines have prompted numerous studies attempting to determine a cause,

and pesticide exposure is one leading hypothesis. Take, for example, a 2009 study on tiger salamanders, a relatively common amphibian found throughout central North America. Researchers found chlorpyrifos exposure reduced survival and made larvae more susceptible to viral infection. Or how about the study in which researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey found lower brain functioning and higher chlorpyrifos concentrations in Pacific tree frog tadpoles sampled from Sequoia National Park compared to those from other parts of California.

Perhaps you are questioning why relatively pristine ecosystems like those in the Eastern Sierras appear to be showing more problems from chlorpyrifos than other, more polluted parts of the state. If so, then you’ve picked up on a key problem with pesticides: They rarely stay put. Much of the 1.45 million pounds of active-ingredient chlorpyrifos applied annually in California is used in the agriculturally intensive Central Valley, but summer winds blow chemicals eastward, putting in harm’s way many of the beautiful natural areas we Californians love. So, what’s the solution? How do we balance the need for food security with environmental stewardship? The answer probably includes a diversified approach that mixes different agricultural management strategies. This may even include some pesticide use, but we should be responsibly using the pesticides we believe to be safe and eliminating those we know to be damaging. Our reactionary “spray first, think later” national pesticide policy has let us down in the past (anyone remember DDT?), and we share Pruitt’s desire for a change toward decision-making grounded in sound science. That starts by listening to scientists, including those at the EPA, who have already agreed: Chlorpyrifos simply isn’t worth the risk. John Sisser and Matt Gargiulo are master’s degree candidates at UC Santa Barbara’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, specializing in Pollution Prevention and Remediation. Sisser also specializes in Water Resources Management.



architects have presented their own work for review since 1988. Although he enjoyed designing living spaces, he ultimately moved away from residential work because, as he said, “I ended up being a marriage counselor to the clients!” He designed two of his own homes; the first received an award by Better Home Magazine in 1959. The second received a citation from the Santa Barbara Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 1974. He and Dorothy were divorced in 1964 and he married his second wife Dianne (neé Mostue) in November of 1965. Thirteen years later, at the age of 53, he became a father once again to son Robert L. Grant. Bob and Dianne were married for 45 years, and together they traveled extensively in Europe and the Americas. His experiences in the Navy led to a lifelong passion for sailing, and he spent countless days on the water. Although he found joy in cruising and daysailing, Bob was an insatiable racer, contending all the way up to his retirement from racing at the age of 88. Every year featured a packed schedule of local and regional inshore races, and many also featured an offshore passage or two, including multiple races from Southern California to Mexico. In 1970, Bob served as watch captain on the overall winner of the Los Angeles-Tahiti Race. As a skipper he scored a class win and third overall out of 60 boats in the 1983 TransPacific Yacht Race from Los AngelesHonolulu. One of his crewmembers of 20-somethings who later went on to success in subsequent editions of the race said, “It was great; still my favorite TransPac. He put complete trust in a bunch of us ‘kids’ to sail the boat at all times.” His name graces numerous trophies at his beloved Santa Barbara Yacht Club — a total of 47 times over six decades, including wins for Outstanding Contribution to Yachting, Outstanding Contribution to Junior Sailing, Sportsman of the Year and Skipper of the Year. He also served on the club’s board of directors for two stints during two separate decades. Bob also had a lifelong love of music, and he served on the Community Arts Music Association’s Board of Directors. He recalled that as a kid, his brother Les, a talented pianist, would practice on Saturday mornings and all the windows in the neighborhood would open. “When I started playing my cornet, they would all slam shut!” He is preceded in death by his father Ulysses, mother Mary, and brother Les, and he is survived by his children Steven D. Grant, Karen L. Grant, Julia L. Braeger and Robert L. Grant and grandchildren Drew McPherson and Dana Grant. A celebration of life will be held at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club next Wednesday, May 10, at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations in his memory to be made to the redevelopment of the UC Santa Barbara sailing facility at the harbor, which serves both students and the general public and is at the end of its lifespan. Checks should be made payable to the UCSB Foundation with “UCSB Sailing in memory of Bob

Grant — sailing facility redevelopredevelop ment” written in the memo line of the check and mailed to: Student Affairs Grants and Development, UCSB, Santa Barbara, CA 931065015. Online memorial gifts may also be made at giving/recsailing with “UCSB Sailing in memory of Bob Grant — sailing facility redevelopment” in the comments section.

Lillian Garcia Pizano January 8, 1933 – April 24, 2017 Lillian passed away on Monday, April 24, 2017. She was born and raised in East Los Angeles where she married Alberto Pizano and where their two sons and two daughters were also born and raised. She devoted her life to her husband of 65 years. An effective advocate, she supported and participated in many of his political and social advocacy endeavors, such as the community effort to clean up the lake in Los Angeles’ Lincoln Park. In Los Angeles, her husband was uncommonly involved with the Democratic Central Committee, and was President of the Monterey Park Democratic Club. He took major responsibility for local activities related to Robert Kennedy’s presidential campaign and because of his involvement they were both in attendance during the events at the Ambassador Hotel on June 5, 1968. While many issues were important to Lillian and her husband, Latino issues were the most important. The family moved from East Los Angeles to Santa Barbara in the late 1970s when her husband accepted a promotional opportunity to be District Manager for the Southern California Gas Company. During her time in Santa Barbara she volunteered for many local organizations such as Old Spanish Days, The Hispanic Achievement Council, the Santa Barbara Mariachi Festival, and the Flamenco Arts Festival. One of the highlights of her life was serving as the First Lady of Old Spanish Days when her husband became El Presidente in 1987. As First Lady, she was proud of her duties, including designing the costumes and coordinating activities for the flower girls.

While hosting many charitable events Lillian’s beautiful smile, laugh and kind demeanor would light-up the room and put people at ease. She loved the Arts having attended numerous performances at both The Granada Theatre and the Lobero Theatre, as well as various museums and art exhibits on the West Coast, Central America, South America and Europe. Lillian was in many ways ahead of her time. She had an independent conscience from an early age. She was very modern and competitive. Having been the captain of her high school volleyball team, she couldn’t help but enjoy watching sports, especially the Super Bowl with her husband. She was so enchanting, Bobby Darin asked her for a dance rather than her many girlfriends sitting at the same table. She is eternally graceful and beautiful. She embraced the roles as loyal wife, devoted mother, loving grandmother and a dedicated, compassionate, supportive community leader which were paramount. She will be greatly missed, but her family finds comfort that she is reunited with her husband Alberto and her two sons, Michael and Paul. Lillian is survived by her daughters, Vibiana Pizano Smith and Sonia Pizano-Bellotti, her sons-in-law Brian Smith and Philip Bellotti, and her two grandchildren, Pablo Pizano and Jaclyn Pizano Smith. Services will be held on Friday, May 5, 2017 at the Santa Barbara Cemetery Chapel, 901 Channel Dr, Montecito, at 1:00 pm. A celebration of life will follow at 1207 Miramonte Drive, Santa Barbara, CA.

So You Wanna Be Mayor?

JUST ONE VOTE: The mayor only has one

vote on the Santa Barbara City Council, so why does everybody want to be Hizhonor or Herhonor? In fact, some newer cities are content to rotate the job every year, making it no big deal. But in Santa Barbara, we elect da mayor for four whole years, which IS a big deal in a small town. True, he or she does wield the gavel, preside at ribbon cuttings, and pick up prestige points to use when running for higher office (lotta good it did for Mayor Helene Schneider when she ran for Congress last year and lost). Being mayor is also a good way to make enemies, sure to come out of the woodwork on Election Day. The days of Big City power mayors are over, it seems. Chicago’s Richard J. Daley ran the Windy City from the day he was elected in 1955 until the day he died in 1976. In Chicago, no one was talking about any term-limits bull. He also headed the Democratic machine, and you didn’t get in his way if you knew what was good for you. In Santa Barbara, running for mayor tends to be orderly, with few if any harsh words; it’s my turn now. I knew Don MacGillivray, who was elected Santa Barbara mayor in 1963 under the traditional strong mayor system, where the mayor runs city government and controls the departments.

RICHARD V. RICHARD: Nixon arrives on the tarmac in 1971 and is greeted by Daley, the storied mayor of Chicago.

He was a strong personality with firm opinions on nearly everything. A lifelong conservative Democrat, he turned Republican in the 1960s when he felt the new breed of Democrats was too liberal. He strongly opposed the shift to a city manager administrator system in 1969 when the city moved to what voters considered more professional management. The city also dumped the old ward system, which he felt created fiefdoms in which

city councilmembers too often failed to consider the overall needs of the city. Don ran for Assembly that year and served two terms. Ironically, last year, Santa Barbara returned to the district form of elected councilmembers due to a state law banning electoral discrimination against racial minorities. But in 1935, a just-elected mayor became what some called a dictator. Edmund O. Hanson, who resembled actor Charles Bickford, vowed to “clean out City Hall” on a reform ticket. He took office five minutes after midnight on June 1, 1935, and abruptly fired Police Chief Jess A. Butts and practically all department heads. When dawn broke, a crowd estimated at 1,600 gathered in De la Guerra Plaza in advance of the council meeting. “I also plan to build a municipal comfort station in the Plaza, in front of the Daily News building for the comfort of the public,” Hanson told the crowd through a loudspeaker. Installing a public toilet there was a direct insult aimed at T.M. Storke, then publisher of the Daily News (now the Santa Barbara News-Press), with whom Hanson had clashed during the campaign. The City Council rebelled, challenging the mayor’s right to fire department heads. Hanson survived an April Fool’s Day recall election in 1936, but four department heads lost their jobs.

Hanson then became insufferably arrogant, according to area historian Walker Tompkins, criticized Superior Court judges, and found himself facing contempt-of-court charges and possible jail. On December 10, 1936, Hanson resigned. The hullabaloo was over. Patrick J. Maher was named to succeed him, and relative peace settled over City Hall. MINEARDS’S CASE: Although former News-

Press columnist Richard Mineards is expecting up to a couple of million dollars from his federal labor case against the paper, others close to the scene are doubtful that he’ll get anywhere near that much.When Mineards was sacked back in January 9, 2009, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) charged the paper with an unfair labor action. Newsroom employees are represented by the Teamsters union.A federal court ruled March 3 against the News-Press regarding this and other allegations. The paper will have to offer reinstatement and back pay to Mineards and sports reporter Dennis Moran, and pay bargaining expenses to the union and annual raises to all qualifying newsroom employees. The NLRB will also require that a notice be posted regarding employee rights to organize without management interference and allow a reading of the notice to a gathering of newsroom employees. — Barney Brantingham

Sound Inside the

How the SymphOny and the SchOOlS Came TogeTHer To SAVe the StRingS


aturday April 29, at the Page Youth Center aturday, was like any other Saturday at the city’s most popular destination for parents and school-age children. The parking lot overflowed with family cars, SUVs, and vans, and the bases of the ball fields were loaded by Little Leaguers. Yet something was different; there was an unusual new sound coming from inside the big main room of the recreation center. Instead of the squeaking of athletic shoes on polished wood, the steady rhythm of basketballs being dribbled, or the sporadic applause of a crowd following a close volleyball game, there was music. Classical music. Entering through the center-left door between the bleachers, I saw a large half-circle of folding chairs set up on the court and, seated in them, close to 200 young people between the ages of 8 and 18 holding and playing musical instruments. What’s more, while the majority of the spectators sat facing the action in the bleachers, just as they would at a sporting event, there were several dozen parents and siblings who had chosen seats alongside the players in this jumbo-sized orchestra. They were on the court with their children instead of cheering them on from the sidelines. The idea for this novel approach to concert seating came from Santa Barbara Youth Symphony conductor Andrew Radford, and in between the Bach and the Beethoven, he commended those who had chosen to break the fourth wall and enter the playing space. After the traditional conductor’s rite of acknowledging his section leaders and soloists, Radford spoke to the audience, thanking all the friends and family for being there and calling attention to the ones who had taken their seats in the orchestra with the students. “I call that being in the middle of the sound,” he told them, “and it’s something I recommend that everyone try because it’s a very special experience to be inside the music.”“That’s why I do this,” he added, raising both hands in a classic conductor’s pose, “because I love to be in the middle of the sound.” Maestro Radford and Marisa McLeod, the conductor of the Symphony’s Junior

BRAVO! IN ACTION: Teaching assistant Susanna Vinogradski (pictured left) works with students at Santa Barbara Junior High School. have managed to keep our public schools not only functional but flourishing. The organization lobbied successfully on behalf of parcel taxes twice, once in 2008 and then again in 2012, while suffering only one ballot box loss in spring 2011. These four-year deals helped pay for such programs as BRAVO!, the Monday and Thursday afternoon music school currently conducted at Santa Barbara Junior High. Yet despite the public support, revenue from these measures was spread thin across the system, and in its early years the total BRAVO! budget hovered at around $30,000. Music teachers had barely enough resources to keep the lights on, and participation lagged accordingly.

pRiVAte mOney fOR the puBlic gOOd Enter the Incredible Children’s Art Network, or iCAN, a visionary program for teaching visual art and music funded by a private family foundation. Inspired by the extraordinary achievements of Venezuela’s El Sistema, the progressive music education movement that produced Los Angeles Philharmonic Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, iCAN set up a pilot program at Franklin Elementary School in 2011. With ample resources and a dynamic young leader, Adam Johnston, the iCAN music program at its height offered three hours of after-school music instruction daily to more than 100 students between the 1st and 6th grades. When I observed and wrote about the program in June 2013, I found it to be exemplary. Student were provided with instruments free of charge. Help with homework was available on-site every afternoon, and the quality of the instruction was clearly first-rate. The organization’s teaching artists in both the visual arts and music were recruited from the community, paid a living wage, and supplied with enthusiastic assistants mostly drawn from Westmont College. By 2014, the iCAN music program was ready to jump State Street, and with help from the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, they opened a second music site at the Westside Neighborhood Center that year. At that time, the much larger

iCAN visual arts program served 3,200 students at six Title 1 schools in Santa Barbara. Alas, how fast things in the philanthropic world can change. Johnston decamped when his partner took a new job working for Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and within a year, the executive director of the entire organization, Jeffry Walker, was announcing a restructuring that would hand over control of the operation to the SBUSD. Another year went by, and in June 2016, iCAN said “I can’t” continue to deliver services to the community directly, and it became a granting (rather than a programoperating) foundation. The teaching artists, along with Walker, were given notice, and by September 2016, the iCAN music program was history. The title of a June 7, 2016, press release said it all: “Incredible Children’s Art Network closing all programs.” In fairness to iCAN, at least two things ought to be made clear. First, in a family foundation, as in a family, expenditures that don’t pencil out can’t be rescued by wringing hands. In other words, sometimes there’s only so much you can do. Second, as is the case with all of the wonderful foundations that make Santa Barbara such a rich and rewarding community to live in, the goal is ordinarily to initiate positive change rather than to underwrite public programs in perpetuity. Every person I talked to for this story made the same request —“Please don’t make iCAN sound bad.”— and I see their point, because without what iCAN started, the amazing effort that came next would not have been possible.

RAlly time While researching this story, I had the good fortune to attend an event sponsored by the Santa Barbara County Alliance for Arts Education at the Community Arts Workshop on Garden Street. Both Ronzone and Williams were there, and by telling the story of how the Santa Barbara Symphony got involved with BRAVO! and salvaged the work done by iCAN, they gave attendees a master class in negotiating school district bureaucracy. Their story begins in June 2016, and it’s a thriller. Here it is from Williams’s perspective:

c o v e r

s t o r y

COALITION AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE • A Santa Barbara County Coalition •

“We saw the need at the Symphony. We had been receiving students out of this program [iCAN] into the Youth Symphony, so we knew the value of what they were doing, and we could see what might happen if it stopped. One evening I was in the Vons on Turnpike, and a child walked up to my husband in the deli section and said, ‘You are married to Amy; what’s going to happen to my cello?’And my husband turned to me and he said,‘Amy, what’s going to happen to this kid’s cello?’ The conversation we had that night sent me to Donna, and I said to her, ‘You’re going to be seeing this massive bump of students [in BRAVO!, the remaining publicly funded music instruction program]. What are you going to do?’ And she said they were ready to take them on.” Williams was impressed by the can-do attitude but was skeptical about the practicality of BRAVO! absorbing so many new students. She continued the story: “You have to understand this about teachers: They are phenomenal at doing a job with just the resources at hand. At the beginning of my first meeting with the music teachers, I asked them what they needed, and I think the answer was something like ‘25 pencils.’ And that made me change my question. Instead of asking them what they needed, I started to ask, ‘What do you dream of doing?’ Gradually, they opened up, and they said, ‘Well, an 8-1 student-to-teacher ratio would help, and we have students in 4th grade who are starting violin but they don’t have an after-school program, so we could use one of those.’ ” According to Williams, “These conversations took a while; we had many meetings.” In those meetings, she found out it was not just that the music teachers needed

—Dr. Amy Williams resources; they also needed site coordinators. They were operating without on-site support, so, literally, if a kid needed a Band-Aid, the instructor would have a student conduct the orchestra while he or she would go and get that Band-Aid. At that point, because the district was paying for the whole program, there wasn’t enough money for on-site support. So the Symphony came in and raised funds. Between the beginning of June 2016 and the end of August, they raised $91,000, in the process turning a $40,000 program into a $130,000 program. Williams devoted her every waking hour to creating the best possible music education program, and with this new influx of resources, including a major contribution from the S.B. Bowl Foundation, she started looking around to see what else could be done. That’s when the foundation established by iCAN came back into the picture. Williams said, “We realized that there were all these trained teaching artists available who had been with iCAN. These were highly qualified teachers that the students already knew, and they were bilingual, so we hired them.”

we could do better, that was already a step out of that pattern. And now, when I look at what happened, I realize that we all knew how valuable these programs were to the children and to the district. When we found out somewhat abruptly that iCAN was ending, rather than just crying and having kids say, ‘They’re taking my violin away,’ we had to find a route to go forward. How do we make this work? These kids are invested in this, and it’s valuable, and we have to maintain it. What was wonderful was that we found there were people in town who could do this, that we had the right personnel right under our nose. And then it was like, how can we not make this work? Success breeds success, and the community steps forward.” For Williams, it all comes back to one basic principle: If you want to make a difference, you start by asking questions, and you end by answering them. “Collaboration is communication,” she said, “and not just with teachers but with families who need to learn how to advocate for their children through the arts.” She related an interesting story in this regard: “I’ve had a parent come to me with this question: ‘I understand soccer, and I have a violinist. What do I do?’” And, like Maestro Radford with his seating plan, she’s prepared to answer that person.“The arts experience will provide a foundation that can launch these students to another level,” she said, and as they take their places alongside their children inside the sound of this emerging youth orchestra, Santa Barbara families are beginning to imagine what that future n might be.

As is the case with any citywide program, logistics were a special challenge. Some students using the regular bus routes were riding around for up to an hour after school just to get to Santa Barbara Junior High for their lessons. Williams and Ronzone went to work with the transport company and got five buses designated just for BRAVO!, but that triggered another glitch. Many of the students in BRAVO! were also enrolled in A-OK, a five-day-a-week, after-school child-care program. Taking these students out of A-OK, even for just two days a week, would have significantly affected that program’s funding. The solution? On the two days a week that they have BRAVO!, students sign into A-OK, take the bus to BRAVO!, and then take the bus back at the end of the day to sign out of A-OK. This way, A-OK keeps its funding and the students get their music program. For Williams, the final push came in August, when it was still not clear that the Symphony was ready to go forward with the program. She described the process like this: “When I set the first deadline for August 1, I already knew we weren’t going to make it. The board kept pushing back, saying they needed more time to figure things out, so I moved it to August 5 and then to August 15. At that point, I had to say,‘Look, if you can’t get fully behind this by August 15, I can’t do it.’ When I pushed back, they were surprised at first. I literally got the word that we were a go at 5 p.m. on August 15, 2016. That’s how down to the wire this was. It was truly fast and furious, and we still had a pretty wild first month. We had no site The final BRAVO! concert of the current school year coordinator at that point.” was held Monday, May 1, 6 p.m., at the Marjorie Luke Theatre.

For Ronzone, the experience was eye-opening. As a former principal and a longtime SBUSD administrator, she enjoyed a privileged perspective on the Symphony’s fast track to supporting BRAVO!, and she summed up her take this way: “It’s very common in the school district to operate based on the status quo.

ooking for something fun to do with your mother or girlfriends this year? Check out these series of classes put on by a new business in town, Woman’s Heritage Skillshares, which was founded by three friends: Lauren Malloy, the animal expert; Emma Moore, the chef; and Ashley Moore, the herbalist. The idea behind the business is to bring together women who are interested in learning the domestic arts and crafts from decades past and to create a feeling of sisterhood. The classes, which are held in different locations around the county, range from the art of fermentation to cow milking to how to make your own natural beauty products. The goal in these classes is not for you to suddenly decide to make this long-lost skill your new life’s work — although if it did, more power to you! — but instead to gain a deeper understanding of where and how things are made. It’s also just really fun to enjoy an afternoon with a bunch of women who are eager to learn. Women’s Heritage also now offers a full BeautyShare skin-care line, which is handmade in small batches and is created with the purest natural materials, without added preservatives and lists of ingredients that only a chemist could understand. They offer a face wash, toner, serum, and face lotion, which includes elements such as calendula, rose, and jasmine. In a time when there is great interest in learning about foods and where they all come from, we should not just think about what we are putting in our bodies but also what we are putting on our bodies.

eauty is in the eye of the beholder, but for many eyes, beauty cannot be beheld without beautiful glasses to frame them. Thankfully, there’s Occhiali Fine Eyewear, the longstanding glasses and sunglasses boutique specializing in high-quality designer eyewear. I visited the store, which Independent readers have voted as having the best eyewear selection in our Best of Santa Barbara® issue, to see what makes them such an optimum optical shop. For starters, there’s the inventory, by co-owners Irwin and Salli Eve, both licensed opticians who carry luxury brands such as Oliver Peoples and Francis Klein. “We love innovative brands,” Irwin said. Whether they’re stunners studded with sterling silver décor or prescription frames flush with the finest Japanese woods and titanium —“They take such pride in the craftsmanship,” Irwin said of Japanese designers and manufacturers — the Eves select shades and spectacles that are stylish, cutting-edge, and carefully made, befitting your eyesight needs. “We believe in technical competence. Our clients need to see well,” he said. What’s more, they want you to look good — and will be frank when you don’t. “We’re really critical,” Irwin said, adding that he and his staff will work through multiple looks until they find just the right one. “The customer is at the center. We get a feeling of what styling [the customer] is looking for, who they are, and what they want to project. We try to be empathetic and

get a sense of what they’re looking for.” They also like to push boundaries, having customers try a bolder look than they may usually reach for. “I want to take people a step beyond their comfort level. It’s a way to express yourself, and you want something good,” he said. Eve said the fashion trends in eyewear for 2017 include chunky bold glasses, modern cat eyes, elegant detailing of glasses, frames made of exotic woods, retro styling, sunglasses with double wires — and round is back. So if you have your sights set on a new pair of glasses that will make you see and look better, Occhiali’s, with its stylish stock, could be your place. Give it a look.

ing to punctuate facts that don’t exist. That whiny voice huffing, “The biggest. Ever. Believe me.” I’ve long thought it true, but now statistics prove it: There’s something about Donald Trump standing at the presidential podium that makes women want to run. They’re not running away from politics, though; they’re sprinting toward it—in vast, pissed-off, let’s-do-this numbers. Attendance was 66 percent higher than usual at Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics’ “Ready to Run” workshop in March, for women interested in seeking office; they had to turn folks away. EMILY’s list, a group that helps pro-choice Democratic women get elected, talked to 900 women who wanted to run during the 2016 election cycle; this year they’ve heard from 11,000. “After this election cycle, I think a lot of women were just like, ‘You know, it’s enough. I need to find a way to get involved and make my political voice heard,’” says Maimuna Syed, the brand-new executive director of Emerge California. Emerge is a national organization that identifies, encourages, and trains women to run for office—and to get elected. Trainees undergo 70 hours of in-depth candidate coaching: from public speaking to fundraising, networking, cultural competency, and ethical leadership. Their list of alumnae makes you want to scrap your life and start over as a warrior princess. This week, the Golden State branch graduated its largest class of 57 women — nearly double its typical size. The U.S. ranks 96th in the world email: (behind China and Pakistan, mind you) for percentage of women in elected office. Less than a fifth of our Congress is women. Studies blame the fact that women here are less likely to be recruited or encouraged to run, are still responsible for the majority of child care in their families, and, most significantly, tend to believe they aren’t experienced enough. “I never felt like politics was accessible as a minority immigrant woman—a Muslim woman—like it was somewhere I could fit in,” says Syed, who will speak at the Women and the Environment Conference in Santa Barbara on May 17-18. “I think a lot of women feel this way, like they’re not visible.” Syed planned to go to med school after college but got an internship with Hillary Clinton in 2007. She spent the following years in the labor movement, directing massive unions before returning to Clinton’s campaign for the 2016 election. Like many women, the stunning loss spurred her to action. How could such a qualified woman not be elected, she thought? Why aren’t qualified women being elected to every office? “In California, women only make up 22 percent of the legislature, and yet we’re 52 percent of the voting population!” she said.“That gap is what I decided to focus my effort on. Not just to have gender parity but to stress the issues that elected women are going to advocate on behalf of.” Not only is it crucial to have people at the decision-making table who will actually be affected by those decisions (hello, room full of old white men deciding the fate of women’s reproductive rights), Syed says, but also women are often a different kind of politician — the kind we need more of right now. “Women tend to be problem solvers and, in that sense, are more willing to compromise on issues,” she says. They say, “‘Explain how this affects you,’ and ‘What can we do to fix the problem?’ rather than just making unilateral decisions.” Syed hopes that Emerge’s next few cohorts will produce a fierce, fearless class of female leaders who no longer feel restricted by “the social implications that women have been facing for generations: not having their voices heard and feeling like they have to be the smartest, loudest, most articulate voice, and yet simultaneously the most rational person, in order to succeed in politics.” If Trump has done nothing else for our country, at least he’s disavowed us of that notion.

CROWNING MOMENT: The Santa Barbara Dons celebrate with their coach, Chad Arneson, after they secured the Channel League volleyball championship with a 3-1 victory over Dos Pueblos. They went 8-0 in the league. Both teams enter the CIF playoffs next week. HOME AT LAST: Bill Pintard will send the Foresters out on the diamond at Pershing Park next month.

A PlAte to CAll home Popular Team Begins new Season at Pershing Park


t long last, the popular Santa Barbara Foresters have a place to call home plate this summer. The sixtime champions of the National Baseball Congress will begin their 27th season on June 9 at Pershing Park, a bit of a fixer-upper at a prime location near the waterfront. Bill Pintard, the Foresters’ manager and executive director, basked in the love of the community last Friday at a housewarming ceremony on the Pershing Park diamond. Numerous officials extolled the arrangement that will give the town’s baseball fans a special place to gather this summer and hear the sounds of wooden bats swung by college players from California to Louisiana. Kids can get autographs from potential big leaguers, and youngsters fighting cancer can go on fun-filled outings through the club’s Hugs for Cubs program. Pintard expressed gratitude to everybody who worked to give the Foresters a home after UCSB canceled their longlasting rental of Caesar Uyesaka Stadium. The city-owned park is shared by SBCC, which hosts a playoff baseball series there this weekend, and Major League Softball. Pintard described their cooperation as “what makes a champion.” He singled out Rich Hanna of S.B.’s Parks and Recreation for guiding the process.

All that good stuff resulted from UCSB’s sending the Foresters packing, but Pintard bears a grudge over his club’s eviction. “They just don’t want us,” he said last week. “It put our 2017 season in jeopardy. We were unhappy to leave.” UCSB Intercollegiate Athletics Director John McCutcheon said the Foresters were told more than a year ago that their tenancy would end following the 2016 season. The reason given was that year-round use was putting wear and tear on the facility, and the cost of maintaining and repairing it exceeded the rental payments. Gaucho baseball coach Andrew Checketts backed up the decision. “By the time we get on the field [in the fall], it has not had enough recovery time to be in good shape for the season,” he contended. “There are safety issues with the ball jumping up and hitting kids in the face. It’s not suitable for a competitive Division I program.” Baseball has been among UCSB’s most competitive sports, although the Gauchos are struggling this year. In the six years since Checketts became head coach, they have qualified for the NCAA tournament three times, and last year they reached the College World Series. The university has tried to parlay that success into fundraising for several needed upgrades to its baseball facility. Checketts said he has enjoyed watching Foresters games and wishes them the best at Pershing Park. He confessed that he and Pintard have had a rocky relationship since Major

He was the low scorer for the Dons in the two wins they needed to tie for the Channel League championship, shooting a 73 against Dos Pueblos at the Glen Annie links, and a one-under-par 70 at La Cumbre Country Club in a victory over Buena.

Madison Herrera, Westmont track and field

The sophomore won four individual events (100m, 200m, 100 hurdles, long jump) at the Golden State Athletic Conference Championships, ran on the winning 4x100 relay, and scored a fifth in the triple jump, as Westmont won the team title.

League Baseball’s 2015 amateur draft. The New York Yankees, for whom Pintard is an area scout, selected UCSB’s Paddy O’Brien in the 24th round and signed him as a pitching prospect. O’Brien, who hit .391 as a designated hitter for the Gauchos, was a redshirt sophomore with two more years of eligibility. “That’s a reason for our relationship being strained,” Checketts said, “but it’s not the reason the Foresters are moving.” Checketts pointed out that the only Division I college ballpark on the West Coast with a regular summer tenant is Oregon State’s Goss Stadium, where the field is fully surfaced by artificial turf. The Corvallis Knights play there in the summer months. They are named after their primary sponsor, Penny Knight, the wife of multibillionaire Nike founder Phil Knight. The Santa Barbara Winfreys, anybody? There’s no reason to choose sides between the Foresters and the Gauchos — or Westmont’s Warriors, SBCC’s Vaqueros, the high schools, and the youth leagues, for that matter — if you like baseball. Think of all the hours you’d spend watching Dodgers games, if they were available on TV, and spend some of them at a ballpark near you. Besides SBCC’s regional playoff games, UCSB will host UC Davis in a Big West Series this weekend. The Gauchos, just 5-7 in the conference, managed to pull out a 6-5 victory in Sunday’s game at UC Riverside, thanks to freshman center fielder Tommy Jew, who scored the winning run after a ninth-inning triple and made a game-saving catch for the final out. TWIN TENNIS TRIUMPHS: With a pair of 4-1 victories in the Big West finals at Indian Wells — the men over Cal Poly and the women over top-seeded Hawai‘i — UCSB’s tennis teams will both be advancing to the NCAA tournament. The Gaucho men (19-5) have won 12 consecutive matches. n The women are 17-9.

hile strolling through Paseo Nuevo recently, I noticed a new sign that reads “Fresh Seafood — PokeCeviche Fresh Macros Coming Soon.” The sign was on a window in the space immediately to the left of Brookstone, and a peek inside reveals that the building is mostly empty. Poke and ceviche seafood dishes originate from different geographical regions and, as such, draw on very different ingredients. Poke hails from Hawai‘i and has traditionally been largely influenced by Asian flavors and ingredients; ceviche has its roots in Latin America and is often accompanied by tangy citrus, fresh herbs, and pepper. It sounds like this business will be offering the best of both worlds. iSlandS reStaurant conFirMed For la cuMBre Plaza: Reader

Eric spotted an update to the La Cumbre Plaza website that shows Islands Restaurant is taking over the space previously occupied by Marmalade Café. Reader Eric noted that the names of the businesses behind Marmalade (inside the mall) are no longer listed on the map, indicating that Islands might expand beyond the Marmalade space to fill most of the building … or not. We’ll see. On March 8, I publicized a report from reader Bodie that Islands had signed a lease at La Cumbre Plaza. On March 15, reader Bodie reported that Islands takes over the space May 1 and should open in mid-October. Fire at BreWhouSe: On Wednesday morning, April

s o c i A l ly c o n s c i o u s Music fest

couple of weeks back, New York magazine inquired, “Is Political Art the Only Art That Matters Now?” It’s a question artists across the U.S. have been asking themselves over the past few months. Shaken and, in many cases, appalled by the Trump administration’s attitudes and actions, many have been pondering whether and how they can use their talents to promote a vision of a more just and inclusive America. For Noel Paul Stookey, who was one-third of the legendary folk music trio Peter, Paul & Mary, the answer is obvious. Throughout the turbulent 1960s, his group and many like-minded others wrote and performed the protest songs that became the soundtrack of a movement. The best of these — such as Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind”— Wind” have

become classics. “Songs of solidarity, songs of faith, and songs of equity have always served as a stirring call to community,” he noted. And he believes they can, and should, again. To that end, Stookey is curating and hosting Music for Changing Times, a weeklong festival that kicks off Monday, May 8, at Ventura’s Rubicon Theatre. “It has always been our intent as a theater company to reflect and respond to the times that we’re living in,” said Producing Artistic Director Karyl Lynn Burns. “And we are living in difficult times. As an individual, I find sometimes I feel powerless to make change. But I think music gives us hope and inspiration. And there’s a particular kind of anthemic music that, throughout history, has empowered us to take positive action.”

Troubled Times Call for TruTh-Telling Troubadours

San MarcoS HigH preSentS

Damn Yankees Ambitious high school musical theater performers are always looking for ways to sharpen their understanding and improve their interpretation of the roles they play. Studying the script, watching the movie, listening to the soundtrack recording — these all help, but what about a visit from the original leading man? That’s what students in the San Marcos High School production of Damn Yankees got on March 16 when Tab Hunter, who played Joe Hardy in the 1958 film, showed up at their rehearsal. Director Riley Berris contacted Hunter, a longtime resident of Montecito, and he graciously accepted her invitation to visit the school, answer questions about Damn Yankees and his career, and even offer the cast some notes on their rehearsal performance of the ensemble number “Six Months Out of Every

Year.” Students were clearly thrilled to meet and interact with Hunter, who remains as vibrant and acute in his insights as he was in his heyday. Damn Yankees makes an exciting choice for the school’s spring musical. Bob Fosse’s work on the original production has inspired the show’s choreographer, Jessica Ballonoff, to new heights of imagination and creativity, and the cast is thoroughly enchanted with the story’s take on the passions ignited by professional sports and by its lively and humorous look at the battle between the sexes. Alex Marquis stars as Joe Hardy, the ball player who’s in league with the devil, and Lana Kanen will perform as Lola in the sensational role that made dancer Gwen Verdon a star. Berris has nothing but praise for the “amazing musical talent” of her cast and

The Rubicon festival will both celebrate the last great era of such music and introduce audiences to new songwriters who are emulating those politically aware troubadours of the past. It begins with three performances of a new “musical play in progress” that is a sequel of sorts to Lonesome Traveler, a celebration of American folk music Rubicon created, premiered, and ultimately took to New York. The new show focuses on the folk-rock movement and features music by Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, and many others. The schedule also includes a number of concerts, including one Friday, May 12, at 7 p.m., featuring Stookey and his longtime singing partner Peter Yarrow; a concert featuring 10 winners of a young songwriters’ competition; and a master class in which these up-and-coming balladeers will be paired with veterans who “write songs that reflect current events and inspire change.” “I disagree with the assumption that current times have not inspired much in the way of protest music,” Stookey said. “Music of concern is being continually generated by many young writers.” Inspired by memories of his performance with Peter and Mary at Martin Luther King’s 1963 march on Washington, he insisted music can “articulate the issues of the times and respond to them compassionately. Songs of faith, and songs of equity, have always served as stirring call to community.” On one level, the festival seems far afield from the Rubicon’s core mission of presenting new and classic plays. But Burns sees it as “a natural outgrowth of our underlying vision for the theater,” she said. “We hope it is a broadening of our approach … and a deepening and a diversifying.” — Tom Jacobs

A Mezzo’s love for


To most concertgoers, the name “Mahler” in a program indicates a long sit. But not so for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s concert Sunday afternoon at the Granada Theatre. In between two early Schubert symphonies, Michelle DeY DeYoung will join the orchestra for Mahler’s Songs of a Way Wayfarer, a set that wraps up in less than 20 minutes. farer But that doesn’t mean the work’s scope — or for that matter, its impact — is small. “Just within these four songs, he takes you through every emotion of life,” the mezzo-soprano said in a telephone interview from her Colorado home.” It starts with the trauma of losing someone and takes you through the entire journey” from despair to acceptance. DeYoung has sung a lot of Mahler over the years. “I would say my approach to his music has changed as I have grown,” she said. “It can change that day, quite frankly. I’m an in-the-moment kind of singer. I find that keeps the music alive. And then, of course, there is the influence of the conductor — in this case, L.A. Phil Music Director Gustavo Dudamel. “He’s one of my favorite people to work with,” she said. “I feel he gets the best out of singers. He never says, ‘It has to be this way.’ It’s a real collaboration. That’s definitely not always the case with conductors.” Another maestro DeYoung has worked with frequently is Michael Tilson Thomas, and one particular collaboration of theirs illustrates how meaningful she finds Mahler’s music. He had asked her to perform and record the composer’s Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children) with his San Francisco Symphony in September 2001 — a gig she had to turn down because she was committed to appearing in a French opera production. Then came the 9/11 attacks. With all flights grounded, she couldn’t get to Europe, and the European singer the symphony had hired couldn’t get to California. So DeYoung drove from Denver to San Francisco and performed the piece after all. “It was really healing for all of us,” she recalled. “People would start crying in the middle of rehearsals. We ended up winning Grammy Awards for that recording, which was wonderful because it meant so much. Mahler can be quite cathartic.” CAMA presents the Los Angeles Philharmonic Sunday, May 7, 4 p.m., at the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.). Tick Tickets are $39-$104. Call 899-2222 or see — TJ

Fire ant bites are noticeable immediately immediately. The bites begin as little red marks that turn into white pustules or blisters, Raupp said.

magine …” Elizabeth Gilbert begins, and I’m already enrapt. Since 2006, the acclaimed author’s eating, praying, and loving has ignited imaginations all over the world. Indulging her audience with awe-inspiring humility, whimsical wit, and food for thought, her storytelling bursts at the seams and leaves her readers craving more, more, and more. But Gilbert’s journey to storytelling — which she will speak about in a UCSB Arts & Lectures–sponsored conversation with Pico Iyer on Saturday, May 6 — is just as inspiring as her books that have graced best-seller lists across the country. She continues: “It’s 5 p.m.You head to the nearest hardware store to buy one bucket of paint. You enter your new apartment and start painting in the middle of a white wall. You run into shelves and nails and other obstacles. Now you’re out of paint and all you’re left with is a blotch in the center of your wall.” Gilbert describes her early approach to writing as, yes, blotchy. “It was inefficient. I didn’t know how to plan,” she admits. Now the effortless ebb and flow of her masterfully crafted sentences make it difficult to imagine that her path to authorship wasn’t easy. In her early twenties, Gilbert was waitressing in New York City, working three jobs to sustain a living yet making no proby Olivia Nemec ductive strokes on her canvas of dreams. Though she had always wanted to be a writer, fulfilling her artistic visions with limited resources and time seemed impossible. But one evening, a painter’s harsh words would inspire Gilbert to draw creativity into her life with premeditated strokes, careful planning, and fierce dedication in spite of the many obstacles life presented. Perhaps what makes Gilbert’s stories so moving and universally relatable is her ability to uncover the life-changing lessons in seemingly mundane realities, like painting a wall. “It’s become a lifelong practice of collecting clues and following creativity,” she explains. At some point, we all have to begin sketching the outlines of the lives we hope to lead. For Gilbert, it’s not the final aesthetic that counts; rather, what marks our successes in this world are the strategies with which we go about crafting our lives and the perseverance to complete the tasks we set out for ourselves. After all, she says, “the point, and whole game of life, is staying with ‘it.’ ” Gilbert has dedicated her creative life to helping women everywhere discover their own “it,” whatever those “its” may be.“At this moment, women have agency, more than ever before,” she says with an infectious resilience in her voice.“Women have always been strong and fierce, but they didn’t have rights. I don’t want to waste that. When I’m feeling small and powerless, I think of my ancestry, and they always say,‘do it!’” And do it she does. Named one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in the world by Time magazine, Gilbert pursued her dreams, filling the world with stories that empower millions to paint their lives colorful and pursue their own dreams — whatever they may be. “This is an incredible moment for individual power,” she says.“The world will always have a place for you, if only you ask it to.”

see myself as an artist, an album artist,” said legendary singer/ songwriter Rodney Crowell in a recent phone interview with The Santa Barbara Independent. “I approach [making a record] much in the same way as someone who’s a painter paints, and hopefully has a collection of 20 canvases to have an art show. Basically, I look at my albums as an art show.” During his storied career, now in its fifth decade, Crowell has created enough “canvases” for many art shows. His latest release, Close Ties, is no exception. The multi-Grammy winner began honing his craft as a struggling musician in Nashville, hanging out with future musical luminaries including Townes Van Zandt, Waylon Jennings, and Guy Clark, who was particularly influential in shaping Crowell’s approach to songwriting. Crowell said Clark once told him, “You can’t hide your narrative behind the chord changes and the melody and sleight-of-hand wink of the eye. … You gotta be able to look somebody in the eye and tell them what you’re singing and not flinch.” Listen to any of Crowell’s songs, including his recent single, “It Ain’t Over,” and it’s apparent that he took his mentor’s advice. The following is an abridged version of our conversation.

It seems to me that a lot of artists these days do not do that. In fairness to them, they may not have stumbled into a salon of hard-drinking, stayup-all-night [musicians] discussing the finer points of poetry. We didn’t grow up looking at videos, watching somebody create images to go with music.

good on that promise if only “Deacon Blues” had been included in the lineup. The light show was minimal, but it did not need to be anything more. The musicianship dazzled on its own. Donald Fagen’s strong vocals and keyboard playing anchored the band while Jon Herington’s guitar never ceased to inspire and rejuvenate songs with a new energy. His mesmerizing solos were especially impressive in the effervescent “My Old School” in which the horn section also played a starring role. Three soulful backup

ust before country legend Willie Nelson emerged at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Sunday night, people passed around a note: “When he comes out, sing Happy Birthday to Willie—Pass it on.” The high school gimmick was surprisingly successful as the middle-aged crowd stood and belted “Happy Birthday” to the 84-year-old. Though he played the night before at Stagecoach, Nelson’s voice was the opposite of tired. He might have been the oldest person at At the S.B. Bowl, the show. Sun., Apr. 30. Nelson began his set with the smooth sounds of “Whiskey River,” making the warm April night feel more like July. He played a swath of favorites — including “Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” and “On the Road Again” — and just before 9 p.m., he tore off his red bandana, threw it to the crowd, and sang “Georgia on My Mind.” Many were already wearing bandanas and flannels and cowboy hats. Nearly everyone appeared to be lifelong fans, one of them telling those waiting in line for the restroom, “You are in for quite the treat!”

Each song flowed into the next, and Nelson gave little commentary. He did insert “Happy Birthday to me!” into his riff, to the delight of the crowd, which reportedly included Jessica Simpson. At the tail end of the show, Nelson was joined onstage by rising country star Maren Morris, who opened for him. Though he didn’t play an encore, the audience did not seem bummed. He’s 84, after all. — Kelsey Brugger

The IMMorTal lIfe of henrIeTTa lacks Oprah Winfrey Shines in Socially, Medically, Ethically, and Racially Charged Film


ontecito resident Oprah Winfrey recently made one of her too-infrequent steps boldly into the mass cultural spotlight, in a thespian sense, and reminds us why she really should make a habit of doing so more often. In the utterly and literally unique tale of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks on HBO, Winfrey’s commanding presence — by turns coolly and righteously indignant, warmly and collaboratively activist, and cathartically heated—is certainly one of the reasons to tune in, aside from the socially, medically, ethically, and racially charged resonances of its backstory. Based on the best-selling book by Rebecca Skloot, Henrietta Lacks tells the true tale of the African-American woman who died of cervical cancer in 1951 whose cells, which were successfully harvested and replicated, eventually contributed to important research on cancer treatment, the AIDS Cocktail, the polio cure, and other medical breakthroughs. And yet the decision was made to keep her name anonymous, changing it to Helen Lane and hiding the identity behind the generic code word HeLa. Her daughter Deborah (Winfrey) tussles and ultimately rallies with journalist Skloot (Rose Byrne) in bringing the identity and life story of her heroic mother to public light, an effort in the crosshairs of this film. Secondarily, the book and TV film go inside the inside, conveying the story of the struggle to make the true story public. Suspicious of attempts to cash in on the Lacks controversy, the family is quick to suspect and shun freelance writer Skloot when she attempts to penetrate the family — and the family’s — trust. Eventually, but never predictably, the reporter becomes endeared and entrusted to set the record straight, bucking dubious and racist schemes by Johns Hopkins and the medical industry to keep the Lacks name secret for decades. If director George C. Wolfe’s HBO project fails to reach that critical level of artistry where we broach the question, “Is this TV production encroaching on the caliber and care of a film film?,” it has the power of a good story (and, among other things, the power of a good musical score by Branford Marsalis) to magne-

tize us. We happily sink into the small-screen movie’s narrative, which unveils not only this one mid-century black woman’s humble life, but also the conditions of life in the community and the American black rural experience, from juke joints to hallelujah zones to dark chapters of abuse, the subject of a particularly harrowing flashback sequence with Winfrey’s momentary, convincing undoing. In a broader context, TV’s Henrietta Lacks follows suit in a screen season that has been an inspiration in terms of evening up the score of African-American contributions to the pool of film/TV work of note— from Moonlight’s well-deserved Oscar hosanna (sorry, La La folks) to Denzel Washington’s triumphant Fences feat and, most relevant here, the crowd-pleasing, warm, fuzzy biz of Hidden Figures, another remarkable truelife tale of an African-American woman (and women) making an important impact on America’s progress, out of sight and mind of America’s awareness. If Figures gives due credit to black women’s role in NASA and the Space Race, Henrietta Lacks casts longoverdue light on the genuinely “immortal” role of a black woman’s impact on health and wellness in the past half-century, on a continuing, cellular level. Even Hollywood wouldn’t have dared to invent such a crazy notion. HeLa is the hero of this story and will outlive us all. — Josef Woodard

Our Environmental Future: Connection, Collaboration, and Creation

Camino Real/Metro 4 (Opens Thu., May 11)

NOW SHOWiNG O Beauty and the Beast

Wed, May 17 / 7:30 PM / Granada Theatre

(129 mins., PG)

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. The animated antiques play matchmaker between the beauty and the beast, knowing that only true love will allow them to see the sun once more. This is a delightful, magical film that hopefully inspires a new generation of Belles unafraid to do the right thing, seek adventure, and love beyond what meets the eye. (SM) Fairview/Fiesta 5

O Born in China

(76 mins., G)

In 1954, Walt Disney Productions won an Academy Award for its documentary The Living Desert. The film was one in a spate of nature docs that the company produced for its True-Life Adventures series, which ran from 1948 to 1960. After the success of March of the Penguins Penguins (2005), Disney decided to reintroduce animal films to its repertoire and in 2009 released Earth. Born in China is Disneynature’s, as this arm of the film studio is called, latest offering and is just what you’d expect from the Magic Kingdom — 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 with her cub who spends much of her days accidentally rolling down leaf-strewn hills. With beauty and compassion, the film shows the complexities of the animal 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

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

How to Be a Latin Lover also stars Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, and Bill Paxton, in his last film role. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

O The Fate of the Furious (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! The acting talents of the massive ensemble cast range from one-dimensional wonders (Michelle Rodriguez) to Oscarwinning performers (Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron), but the real fun is the witty banter between Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, who both prove — once again — their ample comic chops. Tyrese Gibson also delivers in the humor department, cracking wise to great effect. 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) Fairview/Metro 4

O Get Out (103 mins., R) Director Jordan Peele’s terrifying debut horror flick takes the genre to a new level, playing with themes outside of the traditional blood, guts, and shrieks of terror from unsuspecting victims. From the beginning, its protagonist, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), is on edge, almost as if he knows what he is getting into when his seemingly perfect white girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), invites him home to meet her parents. Subtle yet intentional derogatory remarks made toward Chris from her wealthy parents and their neighbors don’t surprise him; what does unsettle him are the odd mannerisms and dated language used by the three other black people he meets. Things really start to go wrong when Rose’s mother (Catherine Keener) hypnotizes Chris to get him to quit smoking, prompting him to surrender his conscious, free-thinking self. 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

How to Be a Latin Lover (115 mins., R) Ken Marino directs this comedy about a man, Maximo (Eugenio Derbez), who seduces older, rich women for their money. Then one day, his billionaire, 80-year-old wife dumps him for a younger man. Maximo goes to live with his estranged sister (Salma Hayek) and her son in their tiny apartment while he schemes to land his next sugar mama, Celeste (Raquel Welch). Camino Real/Fiesta 5

O The Lost City of Z

(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. (RD)

An award-winning journalist, environmentalist and activist, Naomi Klein is a contributing editor for Harper’s and a regular columnist for The Nation. Her incisive books include The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies. Her most recent book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate, was made into an acclaimed documentary film. Presented with Pacific Standard magazine

Paseo Nuevo

O Their Finest

(117 mins., R)

The 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. Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton), while not the contemporary feminist hero, was strong, charming, and engaging to watch. Her rise from the “slop” writer of women’s dialogue to being an essential part of the writing staff and the crew as a whole was fascinating to see, especially because she didn’t achieve it by ardent speeches or a complete change of the old guard, but rather through talent and commitment. 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) 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. Fiesta 5

MAY 4, 2017



a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of may 4 ARIES




(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Beware of feeling sorry for sharks that yell for help. Beware of trusting coyotes that act like sheep and sheep that act like coyotes. Beware of nibbling food from jars whose contents are different from what their labels suggest. But wait! “Beware” is not my only message for you. I have these additional announcements: Welcome interlopers if they’re humble and look you in the eyes. Learn all you can from predators and pretenders without imitating them. Take advantage of any change that’s set in motion by agitators who shake up the status quo, even if you don’t like them.

(June 21-July 22): In a typical conversation, most of us utter too many “uhs,” “likes,” “I means,” and “you knows.” I mean, I’m sure that … uh … you’ll agree that, like, what’s the purpose of, you know, all that pointless noise? But I have some good news to deliver about your personal use of language in the coming weeks, Cancerian. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you’ll have the potential to dramatically lower your reliance on needless filler. But wait, there’s more: Clear thinking and precise speech just might be your superpowers. As a result, your powers of persuasion should intensify. Your ability to advocate for your favorite causes may zoom.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In addition to fashion tips, advice for the brokenhearted, midlife-crisis support, and career counseling, I sometimes provide you with more mystical help. Like now. So if you need nutsand-bolts guidance, I hope you’ll have the sense to read a more down-to-earth horoscope. What I want to tell you is that the metaphor of resurrection is your featured theme. You should assume that it’s somehow the answer to every question. Rejoice in the knowledge that although a part of you has died, it will be reborn in a fresh guise.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The versatile artist Melvin Van Peebles has enjoyed working as a filmmaker, screenwriter, actor, composer, and novelist. One of his more recent efforts was a collaboration with the experimental band The Heliocentrics. Together they created a sciencefiction-themed, spoken-word poetry album titled The Last Transmission. Peebles told NPR,“I haven’t had so much fun with clothes on in years.” If I’m reading the planetary omens correctly, Capricorn, you’re either experiencing that level of fun, or will soon be doing so.


(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In what ways do you most resemble your mother? Now is a good time to take inventory. Once you identify any mom-like qualities that tend to limit your freedom or lead you away from your dreams, devise a plan to transform them. You may never be able to defuse them entirely, but there’s a lot you can do to minimize the mischief they cause. Be calm but calculating in setting your intention, Aquarius! P.S.: In the course of your inventory, you may also find there are ways you are like your mother that are of great value to you. Is there anything you could do to more fully develop their potential?

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): When poet Wislawa Szymborska delivered her speech for winning the Nobel Prize, she said that “whatever else we might think of this world — it is astonishing.” She added that for a poet, there really is no such thing as the “ordinary world,” “ordinary life,” and “the ordinary course of events.” In fact, “Nothing is usual or normal. Not a single stone and not a single cloud above it. Not a single day and not a single night after it. And above all, not a single existence, not anyone’s existence in this world.” I offer you her thoughts, Taurus, because I believe that in the next two weeks you will have an extraordinary potential to feel and act on these truths. You are hereby granted a license to be astonished on a regular basis.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Would you consider enrolling in my Self-Pity Seminar? If so, you would learn that obsessing on self-pity is a means to an end, not a morass to get lost in. You would feel sorry for yourself for brief, intense periods so that you could feel proud and brave the rest of the time. For a given period — let’s say three days — you would indulge and indulge and indulge in self-pity until you entirely exhausted that emotion. Then you’d be free to engage in an orgy of self-healing, self-nurturing, and self-celebration. Ready to get started? Ruminate about the ways that people don’t fully appreciate you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In 1668, England named John Dryden its first Poet Laureate. His literary influence was so monumental that the era in which he published was known as the Age of Dryden. Twentieth-century poetry great T.S. Eliot said he was “the ancestor of nearly all that is best in the poetry of the eighteenth century.” Curiously, Dryden had a low opinion of Shakespeare.“Scarcely intelligible,” he called the Bard, adding,“His whole style is so pestered with figurative expressions that it is as affected as it is coarse.” I foresee a comparable clash of titans in your sphere, Leo. Two major influences may fight it out for supremacy. One embodiment of beauty may be in competition with another. One powerful and persuasive force could oppose another. What will your role be? Mediator? Judge? Neutral observer? Whatever it is, be cagey.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Just this once, and for a limited time only, you have cosmic clearance to load up on sugary treats, leave an empty beer can in the woods, watch stupid TV shows, and act uncool in front of the Beautiful People. Why? Because being totally wellbehaved and perfectly composed and strictly pure would compromise your mental health more than being naughty. Besides, if you want to figure out what you are on the road to becoming, you will need to know more about what you’re not.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Are you ready for the genie’s favors? Don’t rub the magic lamp unless you are.” That’s the message I saw on an Instagram meme. I immediately thought of you. The truth is that up until recently, you have not been fully prepared for the useful but demanding gifts the genie could offer you. You haven’t had the self-mastery necessary to use the gifts as they’re meant to be used, and therefore they were a bit dangerous to you. But that situation has changed. Although you may still not be fully primed, you’re as ready as you can be. That’s why I say: RUB THE MAGIC LAMP!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may have heard the exhortation “Follow your bliss,” which was popularized by mythologist Joseph Campbell. After studying the archetypal stories of many cultures throughout history, he concluded that it was the most important principle driving the success of most heroes. Here’s another way to say it: Identify the job or activity that deeply excites you, and find a way to make it the center of your life. In his later years, Campbell worried that too many people had misinterpreted “Follow your bliss” to mean “Do what comes easily.” That’s all wrong, he said. Anything worth doing takes work and struggle. “Maybe I should have said, ‘Follow your blisters,’” he laughed. I bring this up, Sagittarius, because you are now in an intense “Follow your blisters” phase of following your bliss.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “We are what we imagine,” writes Piscean author N. Scott Momaday.“Our very existence consists in our imagination of ourselves. Our best destiny is to imagine who and what we are. The greatest tragedy that can befall us is to go unimagined.” Let’s make this passage your inspirational keynote for the coming weeks. It’s a perfect time to realize how much power you have to create yourself through the intelligent and purposeful use of your vivid imagination. (P.S.: Here’s a further tip, this time from Cher: “All of us invent ourselves. Some of us just have more imagination than others.”)

Homework: Which of your dead ancestors would you most like to talk to? Imagine a conversation with one of them.

legals admiNister oF estate NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: SYLVIA ANN FRANCO CASE NO: 17PR00164 To all heirs, beneficiaries, c re d i t o r s , contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both of SYLVIA ANN FRANCO, SYLVIA FRANCO A PETITION FOR PROBATE: has been filed by: MARY JEAN FRANCO in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that MARY JEAN FRANCO be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. 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. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: Megan N. Bowker 3910 Constellation Road Suite 105B Lompoc, CA 93436; (805) 430‑8990. Published Apr 27.
