Indy intern Talya Meyers laughed as she recounted her mother’s warning “to stay away as far as possible” from journalism: “My entire life, she told me newspapers were dead if not on life support.” Happily for us, Meyers finally ignored her mom, a writer with the Los Angeles Times … but not until she’d finished her Stanford dissertation on Muslims in Renaissance literature—think Spenser’s The Faerie Queene and Tasso’s Gerusalemme liberata—and began lecturing at UCSB. Meyers recently came home to a journo career writing on such topics as domoic acid poisoning and Santa Barbara’s March for Science. She also teaches a class called “The Postconsumer World,” in which students consider a life other than one built on money and success. Yep, living the dream.

CITY

news Briefs LAW & DISORDER The body of 51-year-old Jon Jay Read was found on the beach below More Mesa around noon on 5/8 by two people on a walk. He was a New York resident who frequented Santa Barbara, according to spokesperson Kelly Hoover with the Sheriff’s Office. “His death is under investigation, but there are no signs of foul play.”

DESAL DEAL HITS ImpASSE Montecito Gets Cold Feet, May Walk Away from City’s $70 Million Project

S

million share of capital costs and up to $1.6 million in operational costs. Was this any way to treat a prospective partner?, the directors wanted to know. In the end, the board balked at making a $250,000 payment to the city this spring. It would have covered half the cost of designing a pipeline to carry desalinated water uphill to the city’s transmission mains near the Mission. And it would have been on top of $190,000 that the district paid the city last year for legal and engineering costs incurred during negotiations. “It’s tabled for the time being, unless the city would like to present alternate terms,” Floyd Wicks, a newly elected Montecito water board director, said. During 30 years as a water company executive, he added,“I don’t remember any time where I had to pay to sit at the table. That doesn’t make a lot of sense.” But the city never had a “pay-to-play” arrangement with Montecito, according to

Josh Haggmark, the city’s water resources manager. The city had hired a contractor to begin designing the pipeline but has halted the work now, he said. “We understood it was a priority for the district to get desalinated water,” Haggmark said. “The city has invested a lot of resources in trying to meet their water-supply needs. It’s frustrating to have them hit the brakes when we get a little rain.” The city’s desalination project is a complete overhaul of a plant that was built at the same location in 1991 to turn seawater into drinking water. On the heels of the “March Miracle” storms of 1991, the original plant was used for only a few months. As fate would have it, the new $70 million plant is expected to begin operations next month, on the heels of a very wet winter. For now, Haggmark said, the city plans to use desalinated water instead of well water to give its depleted groundwater basins a chance to recover. Back in January, representatives of both sides seemed upbeat and optimistic about reaching an agreement. But the Montecito water board is no longer viewing a deal with Santa Barbara as a panacea for drought. The pressure on this community of big estates and small groundwater basins has eased considerably after the heavy rains—enough so that penalties for overwatering have been lifted. Now that both Cachuma and Jameson lakes are more than half full and there’s plenty of state aqueduct water, district officials say they have enough supplies on hand for the next three years, even if it doesn’t rain. “We have to look at what’s best for Montecito, and the city has to do c ity of santa bar bar a

by Melinda Burns anta Barbara’s new waterfront desalination plant is expected to go online next month, but behind the scenes, negotiations over a 40 percent share for Montecito have stalled, raising the possibility that the wealthy community will opt out of the $70 million project. The two sides, represented by staff employees, began weekly talks in October but haven’t met since January. In February, the Montecito Water District’s Board of Directors requested a face-to-face meeting with the Santa Barbara City Council to hash out their differences. The city declined. Then, in March, amid complaints that the city was “exacting a pound of flesh,” the Montecito board publicly aired its opposition to a number of key points including the 20-year term of the agreement. Board directors also objected to a $237,500 annual fee imposed by the city, on top of Montecito’s annual $1.7

The Babich Family Foundation’s Monica and Tim Babich have made a $500,000 matching gift to MOXI, the new children’s museum downtown. The Babiches have pledged to match donations to the museum’s Education Fund for up to $100,000 a year for five years. Ron Skinner, MOXI’s director of education, said, “The Babich family’s generous support will make our field trips, camps, and classes accessible to all.” Pau l wel lm an

WATER IN THE WEST: This season’s exceptional rainfall was especially welcomed after five years of historic drought. But it has also thrown a wrench in desal negotiations between the City of Santa Barbara — represented by Josh Haggmark (left) — and the Montecito Water District and its Board President Dick Shaikewitz (right). Picured below is an aerial shot of the city’s desal plant.

Santa Barbara Herb Clinic reopened on 5/1 under new ownership, as the administrators of the estate of Dr. Weidong “Henry” Han and his wife, Huijie “Jennie” Yu — both murdered along with their young daughter, Emily Han, in March 2016 — have sold the business to acupuncturist Tram Pham, who studied biological sciences and global studies at UCSB before obtaining her master’s from the Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Los Angeles. The preliminary hearing for triple-murder defendant Pierre Haobsh is set to start on 5/31.

City officials cut the ribbon on 5/8 at the recently opened traffic roundabout at the busy intersection of Cliff Drive and Las Positas Road (pictured). The $2 million feature is designed primarily to prevent lengthy backups along Las Positas during afternoon rush hour. The redo includes a public transit stop and new streetlights, landscaping, and storm-water drainage. Ace Hardware CEO John Venhuizen was in town on 5/8 to honor Gary Simpson, the owner of Santa Barbara Home Improvement Center, celebrating 50 years in business and many recent retail accomplishments. Santa Barbara Home Improvement Center was the highest volume store for Ace Hardware nationally in 2016. Also, in 2016, the store raised $16,920 for Cottage Children’s Medical Center.SCHOO cont’d on page 14 É

DESAL CONT’D FROM P. 9 what’s best for them,” said Wicks, who campaigned last fall as an advocate of recycled water. “I think we should put things on hold for a while and study the alternatives. There could be other locations for a desal plant somewhere near Montecito.” At the staff level, Haggmark said, Montecito had been “very much in concurrence” with the city during negotiations. “I think, if we hadn’t had that one storm on February 17, their board would have arrived at a different conclusion,” he said. “Any agreement has elements of give and take, and I thought the current draft terms reached at staff level came close to striking that balance. It really is fair and reasonable. And I’m not ruling out that it won’t still happen.” One of the main sticking points for the Montecito water board has been the 20-year term that the city set for the agreement, with the possibility of three 10-year extensions. The city charter limits all contracts to 50 years. But Montecito directors said they wanted a guaranteed long-term share of desalinated water; they were afraid the city would shut down the plant. “We were looking to make it a source forever on into the future because it’s not rainfall-dependent,” Wicks said. “The city has other sources — a lot more well water, for example. We didn’t want to get into a big dispute about how long desal should be a big source of water.” Haggmark said it simply wouldn’t make sense for the city to walk away from the plant after investing so much money in it. “I would welcome an example of why we would do that,” he said. “It seemed to be a red herring in my mind. Their logic did not hold water— water pun intended. I’m confident we could resolve this under further negotiations, unless this is just an excuse for Montecito to delay participating in desal ’til the next drought.” The plant has been sized to produce 3,125 acre-feet of water yearly. The Montecito district had requested a 40 percent share, or 1,250 acre-feet — enough water to meet a third of the yearly demand in Montecito and Summerland. The district would pay 40 percent of the $4.2 million annual capital cost of the project, plus 40 percent of operational costs. In a major concession to Montecito, the city agreed to reduce the district’s 40 percent share of the capital cost proportionate to its actual share of the water, should the plant

capacity be expanded for other districts. At the same time, there was friction over whether Montecito was the city’s partner or its customer. Montecito wanted the option to double its share in the plant, and the city wanted to charge the district $37,500 yearly for the right to be first in line for that option — another condition the board didn’t like. The two sides also argued over whether the city could supply well water and, in the future, recycled water, as part of Montecito’s share. “That’s a real deal killer,” said Tobe Plough, who joined the Montecito board with Wicks in January as an advocate of recycled water. “They were putting in a condition where the city could give us any kind of water they had available.” Finally, the parties were at odds over a $237,500 annual fee that the city wanted Montecito to pay toward past development

costs. Montecito and Goleta had been partners in the original desalination plant in 1991 but they dropped out in 1995, leaving the city to pay millions of dollars to buy the land, maintain the plant in standby mode, and keep the permits current. “We had to come up with a small amount of money that attempted to compensate the city for costs that we had incurred to make desal even a possibility at this point,” Haggmark said. Montecito Board President Dick Shaikewitz believes there is a 50-50 chance that the two sides can still come to an agreement. “If it can work, it’s a benefit to both of us,” he said.“If it doesn’t happen, there is a chance that we will build our own facility.”

Do You Like Strawberries? Trump’s Ag Order May Open Back Door to Guest Worker Program FiFtH-generation groWer: George Adam, pictured here in a broccoli field, said an increasing amount of food is coming from Mexico, where regulations are less stringent.

F

by Kelsey Brugger

armers in the Santa Maria Valley are breathing a sigh of relief since President Donald Trump ordered Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue two weeks ago to ensure the industry has “access to a reliable workforce.” The faint reference to immigration in his executive order on promoting and regulating agriculture constitutes a sharp departure from Trump’s campaign promise of mass deportations. It is “the first sign we’ve seen for having an opportunity for some type of guest worker program,” said Santa Barbara Republican Mike Stoker, who has worked on ag policy for more than 20 years.“Otherwise we don’t have a reliable workforce.” While many farmers share Stoker’s confidence, they disagree about what form such a program would take. A task force of Perdue and White House officials has 120 days to draft recommendations for Trump. Asked if this one line in the executive order amounted to a significant shift, Stoker said Trump has been softening his tune on immigration for two years.“Every president evolves,” he added. “Obama evolved on a lot of issues — thankfully so.” Stoker, who reportedly is pursuing an appointment to the National Labor Relations Board, famously originated the “lock ’er up” chant at the Republican convention last year. Roughly 30 percent of the county’s estimated 40,000 undocumented laborers work in agriculture to the north of the Santa Ynez Range, many earning just enough to live there permanently as a strong immigrant community. The area is also where Santa Barbara’s most conservative voters live; the region’s 4th supervisorial district was the only one in the county where Trump beat Hillary Clinton, by 9 percentage points. Even though many farmers support Trump, they also knowingly hire undocumented farmworkers. “The Trump administration is in a bind where their proposed mass deportations and border wall would be devastating to their business allies in the ag sector,” said immigrant-rights advocate Lucas Zucker of the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy.“They are looking for a way to have their cake and eat it, too.” Californians for Population Stabilization spokesperson Joe Guzzardi called Trump’s softened position “extremely disappointing,” adding,“There’s not a shred of evidence that

more ag workers are needed.” There is “no shortage of anything” at the farmers markets or grocery stores, he claimed, adding that growers have fabricated the issue in an attempt to get an “abundance of labor.” Yet white Californians have not been seen working in the fields for years. “It’s backbreaking work, and I’m pretty sure there aren’t a lot of millennials filling out applications at our local farms,” said conservative 5th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, who has said he did not vote for Trump. In fact, most Republicans and Democrats agree the immigration system needs reforming; they just disagree on how to get there. Many Republicans have abandoned their old hard-line mentalities, Stoker said, and would probably support reform as long as citizenship is not included. Citizenship tends to be a sticking point for Democrats, though, particularly coastal Democrats, he added. Farmer George Adam of Innovative Produce said perhaps undocumented workers could be issued “resident alien cards and [paid] so much to achieve that status.” Otherwise, farmers say they won’t be able to compete with cheap produce from Central and South America increasingly stocked in grocery stores. Most area farmers support some type of a guest worker program, as a labor shortage of an estimated 25 percent straps the county, leaving $11 million of crops to rot in the field. The growth of strawberry farms has only made it worse. More hands are required to delicately pick the lucrative crop, and farms are nowhere near automation. They pay an hourly wage of roughly $12.50, which is a few dollars more than growers farming leafy greens and broccoli. In recent years, Santa Barbara County has brought in the highest number of temporary ag workers as part of the H-2A program in California, according to Zucker. In 2015, the year the most recent data is available, nearly 1,300 immigrants were brought in for up to nine months—about 500 more than the prior year. Yet almost everyone hates it. Farmers complain the program is cumbersome and expensive, while immigrant advocates say it confines workers to cramped housing and creates an underclass. “Agriculture policy shouldn’t be driven by people in Washington, D.C., who love strawberries but hate farmworkers,” Zucker n said.

Seeking Common Ground on Gun Violence

H

osted by the Coalition Against Gun Violence (CAGV), Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer visited the Santa Barbara Club on May 7 to speak about California’s gun laws and the ever-changing national dialogue on gun safety. “When President Obama was in office, we worked closely with the federal government, both with the Justice Department and with the White House,” Feuer said. “That has changed. The White House is now led by a president who just went to the [National Rifle Association’s] convention, indicating how much he owed the NRA.” Despite the new administration, Feuer said he believes he can find bipartisanship by following gun violence data. “The common ground that should emerge could happen around domestic violence,” he said.“No one thinks that a domestic abuser should have a weapon. Science tells us a domestic abuser in the wake of having a temporary restraining order imposed on him is tremendously more likely to commit an act of violence.” Feuer said the same restrictions should apply to mentally ill people, mentioning Elliot Rodger, the man who went

painfully Inconvenient UCSB Scholar: Torture Victims Will Say Anything

U

by Brian Tanguay

niversity of California, Santa Barbara scholar Elisabeth Weber has spent the last 14 years studying torture, resulting in her new book, Kill Boxes: Facing the Legacy of U.S.-Sponsored Torture, Indefinite Detention, and Drone Warfare. Weber recently sat down with Brian Tanguay to discuss her research and her book.

What motivated you to write about torture? I

believe it is the duty of scholars to search for the truth, no matter how painful or inconvenient that truth might be. Ignorance isn’t an option when it comes to the total denial of human rights represented by torture, indefinite detention, and drone strikes. We must confront such blatant injustice. There is a long tradition in the humanities of confronting the denial of human rights [and] of gross ethical violations, which is one reason autocratic regimes attack the arts and humanities. We deal in complexity and deep truth; autocratic regimes tend to favor black and white, either/or ideas and solutions.

To provide some context, did the united States employ what we now call enhanced interrogation techniques prior to 9/11? The CIA

was involved in developing psychological methods during the Cold War, including sensory deprivation, stress positions, and so on. Many of the techniques developed by the CIA were taught to the security and intelligence services of U.S. client states in Central and South America, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and so on. But, of course, 9/11 changed everything.

Can you explain what you meant when you wrote that torture victims are forced into becoming traitors of themselves? When a prisoner is subjected to intense physical or

psychological pain, like sensory deprivation, he or she will do or say practically anything to make the pain stop, even if this entails betraying friends, family members, country, or religious beliefs. In fact, some prisoners might confess to committing acts they had nothing to do with. Stopping the pain quite understandably becomes paramount. This is one reason why torture is an unreliable method for extracting actionable information from prisoners. It doesn’t work in the real world as it does in movies and television dramas.

President Trump has said he believes torture works. President Trump might want to listen

to people inside the intelligence services, and it wouldn’t hurt if he became familiar with U.S. and international law.

You write a lot about the iconic photograph of the hooded man from Abu ghraib prison in Iraq. Why did that particular photograph resonate so powerfully around the world? I think that

image tapped into ancient memories of the practice of crucifixion, particularly in the Middle East, and it also brought up collective memories of colonialism. That and [the] blatant cruelty contributed to [the photograph’s] power. It’s a shocking symbol, and we—and by this I mean the United States —own it and its legacy. Crucifixion was the most despised form of torture in the ancient world.

Some of the prisoners at guantanamo have been held for years without ever being charged. Indefinite detention without due process of law seems a particularly cruel form of punishment.

Yes. Detention without due process is a form of torture. Unfortunately, American citizens don’t know as much about this as we should. Guantanamo is operated in the name of our collective security, but the practice has the cont’d on page 14 É

Torture CONT’DFROMP.13 effect of perpetuating hatred and animosity and fear. Imagine if your father or brother or uncle was seized without justification, flown to Guantanamo, and forcibly detained for years, his life, liberty, and human dignity stolen from him; there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it. In those circumstances, you might be inclined to seek revenge or retribution for this injustice, either directly or by lending support to others. The point is that our actions have consequences.

How has researching and writing about torture changed you? I’m not entirely sure. I

started my academic career studying the Holocaust. Torture is certainly a dark and unsettling subject, but like I mentioned before, I feel a responsibility as a scholar to investigate and think critically about human rights, about gross injustice. In the long term, it’s in the self-interest of the United States to reflect, deeply and seriously, on our policies and actions. Torture n is an abomination.

Detractors worried about the impacts to tourism and the late-night bottom lines of bars and restaurants. Ultimately, councilmembers followed the leads of Central Coast cities like Carpinteria and San Luis Obispo and opted for a more restrictive measure.“We have a certain image, a certain brand,” said Councilmember Jason Dominguez of Santa Barbara’s health-conscious reputation.

ENVIRONmENT Assemblymember Monique Limón recently authored a bill that would require conventional oil and gas companies to issue quarterly chemical reports. AB 1328 would make the full list of chemicals available to regulators with the Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources and to the public. This mandate is currently in place for unconventional drilling operations — such as fracking — in California, the third largest oil producer in the country, with 201.7 million barrels in 2015. The bill faces opposition from several oil associations including the Western State Petroleum Association, as well as the California Chamber of Commerce. Citing inconsistencies with state and county law, the California Coastal Commission has requested

that the parking lot gate and new signage at Loon Point be removed. Not only were the gate and sign installed without a permit, the new posted hours allow beach access between 8 a.m. and sunset, a more restricted window of time than the historic use from dawn to dusk. “The next step is, I’m talking to [the Coastal Commission] regarding their request,” said Brian Yanez, deputy director of Santa Barbara County Parks Department. Channel Islands National Park rangers are encouraging the boating public to inspect their vessels, anchor lines, and fishing gear for the invasive seaweed Undaria pinnatifida, which has been competing with native seaweed along the northern coast of Anacapa Island and has been found in Ventura Harbor.

HEALTH CARE

mIxED FEELINGS Dr. Frederic Kass Reflects on State’s Aid-in-Dying Bill

by Nick Welsh hen the state’s aid-in-dying law, the End of Life Option Act, went into effect nearly a year ago, Dr. Frederic Kass was one of the few physicians in town willing to even discuss the matter. If the Legislature voted to give those facing terminal illness the right to end their own lives, Kass — a highly respected oncologist and major player in the South Coast medical community — argued, doctors needed to step in to make sure it was done competently and humanely. The state bill was strictly voluntary: doctors were allowed to participate if they so chose. In Santa Barbara County, both Cottage Health and Marian Medical — the two big hospitals — declined to participate. Sansum, with which Kass is affiliated, offered to be involved. So, too, did a small number of private doctors. Since then, a small handful of patients have chosen to activate their opt-out clause. At least one was a patient of Dr. Kass’s. This week, the doctor spoke on the End of Life Option Act at a forum hosted by the Alliance for Living and Dying Well. Beforehand, he spoke with Santa Barbara Independent editor Nick Welsh. The following is a transcribed version of their conversation.

W

When this act was first passed, it seemed that not many providers in Santa Barbara were willing to participate. Yes, only a few

of us were willing to say so publicly. I think some physicians didn’t want people coming to them asking: “Can you help me?” Some just wanted to do it quietly for their own patients. No one here wants to be offering this as a service.

Did that happen in Oregon, where assisted suicide has been legal for 19 years? The data from Oregon shows a few group prac-

titioners who [had] a relatively large number of patients for whom they provided this service; yet, if you look at the time from when they met the patient until the time the patient died, it was barely more than the statutory minimum. The implication is that new patients came to them with their plan, and the doctors were willing to do it. It became a concierge service. That is not the kind of service I want to offer.

Wow, that is a tough one. It goes from the theoretical to the very real. That is right. In the State of California, this is part of

practicing medicine. But, I will tell you that I spend time asking myself: Is this what God wants me to do? And if you ask me, am I sure I know the answer to that? The answer is no. But it was a way to help her with her suffering. And I pray that that’s part of compassionate care. I really spent time in prayer asking if this was the right thing to do.

‘When her quality of life had diminished and she was at the point where her body would not be able to save itself, she told me: ‘I don’t want to be just lying in bed waiting for my heart to stop.’’

Oh, man. That must have been really tough. Yeah, but if I am

going to take responsibility to do this, I can’t hand someone a prescription and say I am not going to be around for the hard part. Right? If I was going to go this far, then I was going to be present for the whole journey.

So you write a prescription … Right, and of course it is up to the

patient to acquire the medication. But once the patient has the drug, I think it is safer if a provider is there. There are questions about how to do this right to avoid mishaps. What you don’t want is for the patient to get sleepy and then not finish it.

Right, so you take like, 100 seconals? So do you have to take apple sauce or … What you do is empty all the capsules, I think

there are 90, and then dissolve it in a juice that the patient can drink. But first, the patient takes anti-nausea medication and other things to make sure it will go down okay. And I gave the patient some advice about eating or drinking that day to be sure it would be absorbed. I hate to describe it this way, but like any other medical procedure there is guidance on how to make sure it goes well. The patients, however, have to do this themselves — the voluntariness has to be straight through to the end. The patient has to be on his or her own to the very end taking the medication.

Thank you very much for discussing this. To be honest, Nick, to

say it’s not easy is an understatement. This is just really hard. You know, the fact of the matter is that, well, we can’t fix being mortal, can we?

We haven’t figured that one out yet. And I, for sure, think God n

intends it that way.

deserved to be fired … just not by Trump, nor for any of Trump’s phony-baloney reasons. The stated rationale is that Comey violated protocol and usurped the chain of command by announcing last July there would be no charges against Hillary Clinton for numerous email security transgressions, and that he did so again on October 28—just 11 days before the election — when he announced he was reopening the investigation because new emails had surfaced. July and October being several eternities ago, one can reasonably ask, why fire Comey right now? Because Comey was actively investigating ties between the Trump White House and Russia for possible collusion. Two hours before Trump fired Comey, federal grand jury subpoenas had been issued demanding business documents from associates of Trump’s short-lived former national security advisor Michael Flynn. In other words, the investigation was heating up. Flynn, as we now know, improperly met a Russian diplomat before Trump was sworn in, improperly discussed American sanctions recently imposed against Russia for hacking the election, lied about it, and failed to properly disclose the $45,000 he was paid by a Russian propaganda agency to deliver a speech in Russia. To an unusual degree, Trump’s election brought America’s genitals out of the closet. It’s worth remembering that we would not be in this mess were it not for disgraced congressmember Anthony Weiner’s twisted

ning for Santa Barbara city mayor. Who do they have to bribe to get a break? I say that because this year’s mayoral election is threatening to become one of the weirdest, wildest, most out-of-control, genuinely unpredictable, and freakishly interesting since 1934. That’s when a messianic megalomaniac who got in fights on Haley Street and packed a gat in his cummerbund beat out a fractured field of boring, pince-nez-wearing establishment ho-hums and the combined might of the city’s power elite. Yet no one cares. Yes, Santa Barbara might have a certified, male, XY chromosome mayor for the first time in 36 years. But such possibilities can’t compete with the ever-escalating self-immolation Trump has unleashed upon himself, firing G-Man-in-Chief James Comey in the most craven way imaginable: via TV news announcement executed from the safe distance of 3,000 miles away. Comey initially thought he’d been the victim of a particularly well-played prank. This from a commander in chief —with his finger on the buttons of 4,018 nuclear missiles — who achieved critical mass in the celebrity freak firmament for his syndicated reality show, You’re Fired! Barely 100 days into Year One, Trump appears to have ignited a constitutional crisis of such magnitude that in any parallel universe would have already brought him down.

Weiner was married at the time to Clinton’s aide and confidante, Huma Abedin, to whom Clinton had sent some of her emails for printing. Abedin shared a computer with her husband, who in his sextcapades went alternately by the on-screen monikers “Carlos Danger” and “T Dog.” When the feds investigated Weiner and his computer for corrupting the morals of a minor across state lines, they stumbled across emails from Clinton. These emails— the number of which, we have since learned, Comey greatly exaggerated — gave rise to his October 28 announcement that the investigation against Clinton was being reopened. He would quickly conclude there was nothing to the new emails, either, but by then the damage was done. There’s no doubt Comey’s October 28 announcement was the fatal blow to Clinton’s campaign. Only in America does a compulsive dick waver named Weiner manage to get an inveterate pussy grabber elected president. Competing for oxygen in this atmosphere are six definite mayoral contenders. In a normal universe, Councilmember Cathy Murillo would be and should be the clear front-runner. As the furthest-left, most overtly populist member of the council, Murillo should be able to tap into the surging anti-Trump sentiment. No one will campaign harder, she’s raised tons of cash, and she’s backed by the Democratic Machine. But Murillo tends to lead with both heart and chin, and a backlash is mounting. Normally, Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss, as the sole Republican, wouldn’t stand

a chance, especially given his past skepticism about climate change. But with so many candidates, Frank — a Zen Buddhist realtor with a steamy midlife-crisis novel featuring a hot Russian babe as lust object—could win with even a tiny fraction. Former Deckers CEO Angel Martinez just announced from Mt. Olympus this week that he’d generously make his vision and executive skills available since both are so sorely lacking at City Hall. Martinez, a Cuban immigrant who reportedly grew up eating Great Society peanut butter, has gobs of dough, a business pedigree that can appeal to the right, and progressive beliefs that resonate left—he hates Trump and has the Tweets to prove it. Though he has zero experience with City Hall, he is strongly backed by a coalition of impatient, agitated, and frustrated Funk Zone property owners. Spicing things up is wild-woman art curator Maiza Hixson, who declared her candidacy at a press conference at 7:45 p.m. on Thursday. Hixson, in town only two years, finds Santa Barbara’s art scene—with its conspicuous lack of nudity and political content — suffocatingly tame. Hixson may have no chance, but she’s smart and funny and should run an entertaining performance-art campaign that offers actual nutritional content. Councilmember Bendy White has yet to announce and former councilmember Hal Conklin has, but both toil in the ho-hum fields to which smart, experienced, mushy moderates with gobs of experience are consigned. If Trump’s the question, they may not be the answer. Here’s what I want to know: If Trump’s the answer, what’s the question? — Nick Welsh

other’s Day is when we celebrate the efforts of moms everywhere to deliver on the promise they make to us when we’re born, to nurture and protect us so we can reach our full potential. But no matter how hard some moms try, they don’t have the knowhow or resources to ensure their babies get the nutrition they need to grow and develop properly. Without this essential nutrition between pregnancy and age 2, many children die. Others are “stunted,” meaning their brains and bodies are irreversibly underdeveloped. President Trump’s budget proposes a 30 percent cut to development assistance programs that help moms deliver on their promises to children. I’m calling on our senators and representatives to speak to leadership in the Senate and House about protecting effective development assistance programs, particularly nutrition programs. What better gift to ask for this Mother’s — Celeste Margaret Anacker, S.B. Day?

A Move in the Right Direction

I

am happy to hear that the Santa Barbara Foresters will be having their baseball games at Pershing Park this year. I am a longtime Santa Barbara resident and attended SBCC many years ago. I have always thought it a shame that Pershing has been underutilized. Some new life is being breathed into it, however, with the Argentine Festival, Santa Barbara Middle School, and now the Foresters holding events there. It is such a lovely park and in such a lovely location; anything that encourages our community to use this gem is appreciated. I hope the city and Parks & Rec are continuing to revive this trend to use Pershing Park for community events. —Sasha Ablitt, S.B.

No Home Here

T

he fine “Racist Housing Legacy” article by Max Golding in the April 20 issue [independent.com/

racismhousing] about a City Council meeting that addressed “tenant protection issues” reminded me of my own experience with prejudice when we came here from San Jose in 1959. We looked several years for a house and were assured by many realtors, especially after they heard the last traces of my Southern accent, that no blacks would ever live in whatever neighborhood we might choose. My mother had urged me to leave Mobile as she was afraid I could be maimed or killed defending the black people whom I loved, as they had always been so good to me. She paid our cook’s way to live in New York with her daughter so she would not be hurt if she went to Selma, and my mother knew I would try to protect her. A psychiatric consultant I worked with, who lived in Hope Ranch, said she was not aware that minorities were not allowed to live there. At a dinner party down the street, the host, a college professor here, said proudly, “... and no blacks will ever live in our neighborhood.” I stood up and told him I thought that was disgusting! The party broke up shortly after that. My compliments for bringing this to the attention of many fine people who are not aware of the undercurrent of prejudice that exists in our beautiful city.

Jose Vazquez passed away April 30th, 2017. He was beloved by friends and family and was known for his tireless work ethic, sense of humor and love for life. His passing was a peaceful one, sur surrounded by family. Jose was born in Michoacán, Mexico to his father Agapito Vazquez and mother Petra Lira. He came to the U.S. as a part of the Bracero Labor Program circa 1950.

Through that program, he served as a laborer for the US government, working through Texas, Arizona and California in the harvest of crops ranging from cotton to tomatoes to oranges. Jose decided to start a family, married and settled in Santa Barbara, California in 1967. Jose was a well-established resident of Santa Barbara from 1967 on, building a suc successful landscaping business and establishing a strong real estate footprint of rental properties in Santa Barbara. Jose’s tireless pursuit of a better life for his immediate and extended family was the embodiment of the American Dream. Jose was an avid Dodger fan, teaching him himself English through the Vin Scully radio broadcasts. He was also a soccer fan, cheering on the Mexico team and the Monarcas from his home state of Michoacán. More than anything Jose was a devoted father and grandfather. Jose was happiest with a child in his arms, patiently walking them through his many gardens and explaining all there was to tell about the plants and trees he so deeply cared for. Jose is survived by his wife of 50 years: Noelia, his sons: Roberto and Jose, and his daughters: Yolanda and Graciela. Grandchildren: Jose Vasquez, Esteban Mendez, Miranda Vasquez, Diego Vasquez, Adrianna Vasquez, Arianna Allison, Isabella Vasquez, Alina Allison and Maya Cruz.

Our dearest Audrey, a delight delightful, warm and empathetic woman died April 11, 2017 after a short illness. Born on Flag Day, 1922 in San Francisco to Swedish immigrants Theodore and Marie Bostrom, she grew up in the small logging town of Tuolumne, CA with her brother Ted and sisters Barbara and Jeanette. Following Ted’s example, she enlisted in the USMC in 1943 and was stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. There she met fellow Marine and the love of her life, Maj. Robert F. Seward. They married in San Francisco on January 12, 1946. Her sense of adventure, can-do attitude and all around smarts made the family’s nomadic military life successful. They settled in Santa Barbara in 1969, a city she has loved since her first visit with Bob via train in the 1940’s. She was the heart of our family and a fabulous mother, grandmother and friend. In addition to the Marines, she had a passion for reading, gardening and the Green Bay Packers. Predeceased by Robert F. Seward (2011).

Yes, march for Climate But What Actions Will Affect This Defining Issue of Human History?

www.santacruzmarkets.com

lee heller

T

by Lee HeLLer hirty-one years ago, I took an

overnight train from Boston to my first march in Washington, D.C., to protest for social justice in Central America and South Africa. Last week, I flew from Santa Barbara to D.C. for what will likely be my last march there (before moving to New Zealand in the fall). This time it was to march for climate justice or, to put it more plainly, to save the planetary ecosystem from catastrophe. The first march was followed by change — no more right-wing paramilitary assaults on the democratically elected socialist government in Nicaragua, and an end to apartheid in South Africa. I’m feeling less optimistic about the likely effectiveness of this last one. There were a lot of people in D.C., although not even a third as many as were reportedly at the Women’s March in January. I was afraid this would be the case, although I understand why—the Women’s March was the first organized response to the nightmare of the emerging alt-right/Republican Trumpocalypse. It channeled the rage and horror of everyone (although led by women reacting to the reality of a Sexist Molester in Chief) on behalf of all those who were being demeaned and devalued. And it was powerful and empowering, spawning sequel after sequel to the point where there seems to be a demonstration nearly every week. And that has me really worried. If the purpose of public protests is to cultivate optimism and community, then that is all to the good. And it would be pretty hard to say to any one cause, “Hey, we’ve already marched for women, science, tax transparency, and the environment — sorry, we’re going to stop now, so you are SOL.” But if the purpose of marches and rallies is to effect change, then I am concerned about two consequences of the current March of the Week pattern: diluting the impact of public demonstrations by making them ordinary (and with smaller turnouts over time) and leading attendees to believe that participation in rallies and marches is in itself effective action. I’ve been an activist for a long time, from social justice and anti-nuclear work in the ’80s to animal welfare and environmental advocacy during my 20 years in Santa Barbara. I’ve been at it long enough, and at the granular level, to care that my efforts are more than feel-good or symbolic; I want my time and energy to pay off. I went to L.A. for the Women’s March and to D.C. for the Peoples’ Climate Rally because I wanted my participation to be effective, and that meant helping to make a public protest big enough, in a place that captures national news coverage, to influence the national debate and the decision makers who determine policy. Most people don’t have that travel option, so local rallies give them a chance to speak up at home. But when they are rallying again and again, to send messages to elected officials already in their camp, and then going

home thinking they have made a difference … what then? The smaller crowd at the climate rally in D.C. seemed to me to be the result of just this superabundance of public protest. Having had marches nearly weekly for the past month, including a March for Science the week before (and some people thought, understandably, that that march on Earth Day was the climate rally), turnout was inevitably smaller. And yet: Climate change is the defining issue of human history. If global climate catastrophe is not averted, everything else—from gender equality to immigrant protection to democracy itself — will fall before rising seas, droughts and floods, mass extinctions, and displacements. The motto of the climate rally was, “To change everything, we need everyone.” Well, we were nowhere near the “everyone” mark on April 29. As I was wandering around, waiting for the march to start and taking photos of a range of smart and clever signs, I ran across a little girl, maybe 6 years old, carrying the most chilling sign of them all. It read:

CITY OF SANTA BARBARA Planning Commission Hearing Regarding the New Zoning Ordinance Wednesday, May 31, 2017, 11:00 a.m. City Hall, City Council Chambers, 735 Anacapa Street The Draft New Zoning Ordinance (NZO) proposes updates and new formatting for the Zoning Ordinance, which is Title 28 of the City’s Municipal Code. The Zoning Ordinance establishes the zone classifications, permitted uses in each zone, development standards and regulations, and the development review process for the City. Development standards related to growth, such as residential density, and amount of nonresidential growth allowed remain unchanged. The majority of the proposed changes consist of reformatting and modernizing language, and clarifying existing regulations; however, a number of changes to zone classifications, permitted uses in each zone, development standards and regulations are proposed, including, but not limited to: Zone Classification/Districts and General Plan Changes: Revising the names and classifications of most zones in Title 28 and several in Title 29 (Airport) to be more descriptive of the allowed uses. Combining three existing commercial zones (C-P, C-L and C-1) into one zone (C-R). Area A of the Veronica Meadows Specific Plan and an adjoining lot are proposed to be rezoned to P-R (Park and Recreation) with a park designation of Open Space, and the General Plan Map designation changed to Parks/Open Space. Allowed Land Uses: Narrowing the range of allowed uses in the M-1 (Light Manufacturing) zone, allowing neighborhood markets, updating home occupation standards, allowing mobile food vendors on private property, and expanding temporary use regulations. Development Standards: Changing standards including the number of stories in a building, building separation, setbacks, open yards, allowed encroachments into setbacks and open yard, size of accessory buildings/garages, fences and hedges, nonconforming buildings and uses, and other aspects of property use and configuration. Parking: Standardizing nonresidential parking requirements, including food service uses, parking for change of use, parking for expansions, bike parking, and parking reduction for small residential units.

The Ordinance Committee Draft of the New Zoning Ordinance, a memo describing the project and major topics discussed by the Planning Commission, and additional information regarding this work effort is available at www.SantaBarbaraCA.gov/NZO. Ordinance Committee recommendations will be forwarded to the City Council for its consideration later this year. The legislative actions required include: 1. General Plan Map Amendment to designate the Veronica Meadows Specific Plan Area A (APN 047-010-064 and 047-010-065) as Parks/Open Space from Hillside Low Density Residential (Max 2 du/ac), and to designate APN 047-061-026 as Parks/Open Space from Hillside Low Density Residential (Max 3 du/ac) and Suburban Low Density Residential (Max 3 du/ac); 2. Amendment to the Certified Local Coastal Program for all proposed changes in the Coastal Zone; and 3. Amendments to Title 28 (Zoning Ordinance & Zoning Map), Title 29 (Airport Zoning Ordinance & Airport Zoning Map), Specific Plan 9-Veronica Meadows, Title 9 (Public Peace and Safety), Title 22 (Environmental Policy and Construction), Title 27 (Subdivisions), and related Titles of the Santa Barbara Municipal Code (SBMC §28.92.020). The Environmental Analyst has determined that the proposed amendments are implementing actions of the 2011 General Plan and within the scope of the 2011 General Plan Certified Final Program Environmental Impact Report (EIR). An Addendum to the 2011 General Plan Certified Final Program EIR provides documentation of environmental analysis of the proposed amendments under California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). You are invited to attend this hearing. On Thursday, May 25, an Agenda with all items to be heard on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 will be available at City Hall, 735 Anacapa. Ordinance Committee meeting agendas, reports, minutes, and videos are available online at http://www.santabarbaraca. gov/gov/cityhall/council/meetings/videos.asp For information or to submit comments, please contact Marck Aguilar, Project Planner at MAguilar@SantaBarbaraCA.gov, by phone at (805)  564-5470, by mail at P.O. Box 1990, Santa Barbara, CA 93102-1990, or in person at the Planning Division Office, 630 Garden Street.

CLUE MASTERS: The House of Clues Santa Barbara’s co-owners (left to right) Assel Abdrakhmanova, Oscar Zevalos, and Whitman Heining stand in their new escape room.

House of CLues T

here’s something new in Santa Barbara for those of you who like to live on the edge: The House of Clues, an escape room that combines mental puzzles with physical challenges and fosters a team-building mentality to the intense countdown of a clock. Designed by a clever group of artists with backgrounds in prop and set design, The House of Clues currently has two themed escape rooms available for play — Pirate Ghost Ship and Psycho Dentist—both created to challenge logic, draw players out of their comfort zones, and collaborate with other individuals in a setting far different from anything found on the daily. With 45 minutes to escape from each respective room, you are under constant video and audio surveillance and can communicate with the game master at any time, as well as receive guidance in the proper direction when needed. Every move counts, and nothing is as it seems. The Pirate Ghost Ship room is right up your alley if you’re in the market for a traditional adventure. Full of treasure, rickety floorboards, and skeletons, the room is decorated to perfection, with every detail playing a key role in the story and in solving the riddles and (literal) puzzles. The Psycho Dentist room is not for those with weak stomachs. This scenario places you in the middle of a deranged dentist’s chilling murder plot, where the key to escape rests in solving a series of tough mysteries based on logic and mathematical puzzles. Though the room has its fair share of jump scares, it’s instantly gratifying to witness your team progress with each riddle solved. Currently operating Friday through Sunday, The House of Clues is a great addition to Santa Barbara’s repertoire of things to do, especially for local adrenaline junkies and those who enjoy stimulating activities. The group of artists behind The House of Clues, with experience in escape rooms from Los Angeles, has brought a big-city activity to Santa Barbara, truly unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I highly recommend you pay The House of Clues a visit, be it with coworkers as a way to strengthen the team mentality, or with friends as an interinter esting way to spend a Saturday afternoon. With a third escape room in the works, this is going to be our community’s next commodity and will satisfy our healthy need for adventure. —Gabriel Tanguay The House of Clues Santa Barbara is at 629 North Salsipuedes Street.

UCSB’s Kayte Christensen Scores Big in Basketball

W

hen The Fast and the Furious movie franchise started in 2001, the same title could have been applied to Kayte Christensen’s brand of basketball at UCSB. “She’s crazy,” said Mark French, then the Gaucho women’s coach.“I couldn’t imagine, when I was a player, getting cranked up like she does all the time.” The numbers and honors tell the story of why Christensen will be inducted into the Santa Barbara Basketball Court of Champions this month: She helped the Gauchos win four consecutive conference titles (1999-2002); she had a career field-goal percentage of .560 (one night she made 16 of 17 shots against Arizona); as a senior, she was the Big West Player of the Year and an Academic All-American; and at her commencement, she was the keynote speaker for the Arts and Humanities graduates. But basic facts don’t reflect how incredibly hard she played, fighting tooth and nail for every loose ball, except maybe the hundreds of fouls she accumulated. The 63 forward took her racehorse style of play to the WNBA for six years, until an injury ended her career. But she did not slow down off the court. Christensen went to work in sports media, becoming a sideline reporter and analyst for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. Three years after they hired her, the Kings replaced her with big-name sportscaster Jim Gray, prompting an outcry from a considerable number of fans. Christensen took on other gigs until the Kings wised up and brought her back in 2013. Gray’s departure was unlamented. Christensen’s forthrightness has earned her the respect of the players she covers.“My favorite job is doing player interviews,” she said. “Because I was a player, I’ve built relationships with them.” Even the gifted but controversial center DeMarcus Cousins, who spent seven turbulent seasons in Sacramento, will cooperate with Christensen. “He trusts me,” she said. “He’s done some horrible things to the media that I can’t condone, but he’s not a bad guy once you get to know him.” Cousins was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans this year, and Christensen said,“I wouldn’t be surprised if he winds up with the Lakers.” Christensen is cohost of weekday sports talk show “The Drive with Dave, Kayte and Nate” on Sports 1140 KHTK in Sacramento. As part of her job, she writes a regular blog that is as expressively vigorous as her crashing the boards for the Gauchos. When she sees ignorance and hypocrisy in sports, Christensen jumps all over it. After former WNBA star Candice Wiggins gave an interview that trashed the women’s league for bullying her and suggested that 98 percent of the players were lesbians, Christensen termed her remarks “unwarranted, disgust-

ing, and petty.” Pointing out that fewer than three WNBA players would be straight, according to Wiggins’s math, Christensen wrote: “Get the hell out of here, Candice. You’ve lost your damn mind. That’s just not true. And even if it was, who cares?!” Having gotten along as a straight player in the league, she questioned whether Wiggins knew the difference between bullying and the competitive nature of professional sports. “It came easily,” Christensen said last week about her opinion piece.“I know a lot of players and coaches. I didn’t find any credibility [in Wiggins’s claims].” LaVar Ball offended Christensen’s sensibilities during March Madness when he took the spotlight away from his son, UCLA guard Lonzo Ball.“It’s shameful. It’s embarTALKING LIKE A CHAMPION: Former UCSB basketball star Kayte Christensen says interviewing NBA rassing.

5/17: Cycling: Amgen Tour of California (ATOC) Many of the world’s best professional riders will shove off next Wednesday at the start of Stage 4, a 99-mile lung-buster from Santa Barbara to Santa Clarita. It’s the midpoint of the 2017 ATOC, which gets underway Sunday in Sacramento and finishes Saturday, May 20, in Pasadena. Stage 3 on Tuesday will start in Pismo Beach, dip into northern Santa Barbara County, and finish in Morro Bay. Santa Barbara is a host city for the eighth time in 12 years since the tour’s inception. Last year, the “Queen Stage” of the race finished at the top of Gibraltar Road, where Julian Alaphilippe of France took the overall lead for good. This year’s outcome may be decided by Stage 5, which ends with a climb up Mount Baldy. The Santa Barbara-Santa Clarita route will likely end in a sprint finish. The usual prospects include perennial Amgen Tour participants Mark Cavendish of Great Britain and Peter Sagan of Slovakia. The NBC Sports Network will televise the race live from 2 to 4 p.m. Start: 11:30am. Cabrillo Boulevard near East Beach. Free. Visit amgentourofcalifornia.com. independent.com

BIG SUR TO WINE COUNTRY: Chef John Cox (above) came to Los Olivos from the Post Ranch Inn to spearhead the ranch-to-restaurant cuisine at The Bear and Star alongside cattle rancher Katie Parker McDonald (below). That includes (clockwise from top left) growing pink oyster mushrooms, serving peppercorn sorbet-topped oysters, shaving cured emu egg on Wagyu carpaccio, and making the best deviled eggs ever.

Achieving Authenticity at

The Bear and STar “T

his ranch is the heartbeat to our family,” says

Katie Parker McDonald, the eldest granddaughter of actor-turned-vintner and hotelier Fess Parker. “Grandma has always loved the winery, but Fess loved the land.” We’re riding through the high grass of an oak-studded plateau on the Parker family’s Foxen Canyon Road ranch, where our horses don’t quiver at the sight of a gopher snake nor pay much attention when a donkey brays loudly in the distance. We’re on the hunt for Katie’s Wagyu cattle, a Japanese breed famed for the marbling of its beef, and we find their dark hides and docile demeanors lingering in pockets of shade near the last of the season’s purple lupine. After spending all of her life stabling horses, teaching riding lessons, leading trail rides, renting livestock to television shows, running beef cattle, and even raising bucking bulls for professional rodeos —“I like to think I was my grandpa’s favorite because I’ve always been the resident cowgirl,” she quipped — Katie and her husband, bull rider Rocky McDonald, started raising the coveted breed about four years ago. The inspiration came from a Wagyu hamburger in Las Vegas. “It was so good; I didn’t even eat the bun,” said Katie. Despite being a slow-growing and sensitive breed, the herd — whose life starts on the family’s New Mexico and Texas ranches and then continues on these pastures before ending with a butcher in Santa Paula — is now a substantial family affair. The 120 head of cattle are further fattened on grape pomace from the family’s winery operations as well as spent brewer’s grains from her half-brother Kristopher Parker’s Third Window Brewing Company. Katie hopes to plant beardless wheat in between the vineyard rows next year while growing the herd to 300 animals. When Katie’s dad, Eli Parker — the son of Fess, who died in 2010, and Marcella, who’s still alive — started to wonder what to do with the meat, he talked to Chef John Cox during a visit to Big Sur’s Post Ranch Inn. “When it’s that tied in, it would be a shame to take a product and sell it to someone else,” Cox advised about a year and a half ago.“I told him that, long-term, you need to create a restaurant. It was inevitable.”

Fess Parker Family

ranCh-to-restaurant ConCePt in los oliVos by matt kettmann

Farm-to-table, For real The family’s Wagyu, wine, and beer are just a few slices of the ranch-to-restaurant pie being cooked up by Cox and the Parkers at The Bear and Star, which opened on May 1 in Los Olivos inside the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn. Katie is also raising 50 sheep for the menu, and Cox’s friend Carly Connelly is tending to Mangalitsa pigs, two acres of row crops, 75 fruit trees, 40 chickens, and a greenhouse on their property, with 50 quail accessible nearby. And the restaurant itself is putting out. There’s an aquaponics system growing about 30 catfish below and leafy greens, watercress, and nasturtiums atop, as well as a fascinating mushroom cabinet with pink, white, and yellow oysters, bear’s heads, shiitakes, and reishis. “My pet peeve as a chef is how abusive people have become to the farm-to-table slogan,” said Cox, who

worked at Post Ranch on and off for 15 years and for similar properties such as Hotel Hana Maui, Cavallo Point, and Sea Ranch Lodge among other stints in Fiji, Florida, and Carmel. Even with everything he’s got going, Cox will be excited to source 50 percent of the menu from the ranch right away and hopes to be close to 80 percent within a couple of years. Why not 100 percent? “Ultimately, it’s people’s expectations,” Cox said. “I would be completely happy with kale, dry-aged beef, and sunchokes — that’s achievable. What’s not achievable is 20-30 menu items, like seafood. We couldn’t really have steelhead trout; we couldn’t have salmon.” So despite all the cross-country hype, Cox explained, “You could probably count on two hands the number of true farm-to-table restaurants in the United States. You’d think that places in California would do it more.” Due to that unique opportunity, Cox jumped onboard as a partner last November, moved from Big Sur to the Santa Barbara Harbor, and directed the design evolution that ensued during the speedy remodel. The look is elegantly modern yet infused with chic cowboy touches, most prominently the skull that hangs over the fireplace in the dinner room.“Maggie was the favorite cow on the ranch,” said Cox, explaining that her addition came at the last minute.“She finished the room for us.” He’s also proud of enhancing the outdoor seating options and breaking down the layout — which was formerly home to Petros and once housed the family’s Restaurant Marcella — into more intimate spaces. That includes the secret room behind the wall of wine bottles and the chef’s room, where he plans to serve more inventive fare amid the shelves of pickling vegetables, fermenting hot sauce, lab-looking rotovap machine, library of cookbooks, mushroom cabinet, and view into the kitchen.

texas, CaliFornia-style (or ViCe Versa?) Though born in Dallas to a multigenerational Texas family, Cox was raised in Santa Fe and got into food in California kitchens, so traditional barbecue wasn’t really in his arsenal. So he bought a massive smoker in Texas with his crew, trained with a famed pit master at Perini Ranch,

and then hit the world barbecue championships in San Angelo, where Fess Parker was born. Despite being outsiders — a beef rib preparation they envisioned at the last minute got them dubbed “The Kumquat Boys” — they got first place in chicken and third overall out of about 40 contestants. The smoker is now an integral part of the restaurant for beef, bacon, ribs, and more, and serves as a symbol of what The Bear and Star is all about: the melding of Texas tradition with California ingenuity. Menu highlights include oysters with pink peppercorn sorbet; deviled eggs with guajillo pepper yolks topped by crispy lardon; smoked pork rillette on grilled bread with pickled onions; Wagyu carpaccio with koji, charred scallions, radish, crunchy mushrooms, and shaved cured yolk (emu if you’re lucky, which tastes like gouda cheese); and cornbread in a cast-iron pan that comes out sizzling in bacon lard with a brown sugar, sherry vinegar, and house hot sauce glaze. And those are just appetizers. Entrees include burgers, pork chops, meatloaf, stuffed quail, and Wagyu tri-tip, while dessert upholds old-school Texas: savory 2860 Grand Avenue, pecan and chess pie, a custardy Los Olivos; 686-1359; concoction whose sugary insides thebearandstar.com form a crust on top while baking. There’s also a full breakfast served daily 7:30-10 a.m. “At Post Ranch, a lot of the food got pretty cerebral,” said Cox, who will still do some of that for one-off dinners. “I hope the level of detail here is the same as there, but we’re trying to do it at an accessible scale.” That’s also why the prices are downright cheap, at least for such considered and directly sourced cuisine: the most expensive items are the $32 Wagyu tri-tip and $28 Berkshire pork chop —similar items easily go for double at many steakhouses—all the way down to the $16 burger and $14 smoked chicken cobb salad. With a pint of Third Window beer, you could escape satisfied for about $30. “It’s the most fair pricing we can do,” said Cox. “The artist from down the street can not only make the plates, but she can come down 10 minutes from her house and afford it. It’s so much fun seeing your neighbors come in and have an awesome experience.” In my estimation, The Bear and Star is not just another new restaurant to try. With so much competition in the culinary space, the biggest challenge is creating something truly unique yet honestly authentic while keeping the menu logistically manageable and relatively affordable. If Cox and the Parkers can stick to the formula, and continue to grow this real ranch-torestaurant experience, The Bear and Star may prove to be Santa Barbara County’s homegrown version of New York’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Certainly, that Dan Barber hotspot is a whole different animal, with a $258 tasting menu and almost everything grown on-site, but the spirit is identical.   The Parker family’s extensive resources don’t hurt either, nor does the fact that this is the culmination of a generational dream for many of them, including Katie, who’d wanted to do something like this for a long time. “Everyone was at a point in their careers where they were perfectly prepared for this restaurant,” she explained as our horses trotted under the spring sun.“You couldn’t have planned it better.” n

LuSTau VermuT

Just introduced from Spain to U.S. markets, this isn’t your father’s red vermouth. Those usually begin with a base of neutral grape wine. This product, coming from a longtime winemaking family in the Jerez region, begins with sherry: both an Amontillado (drier) and a Pedro Ximénez (sweeter). That creates a vermut that’s as deep in flavor as it is fun to say. It is a bit sweeter than some red vermouths, so take that into consideration when making your cocktail — it’s fine in a Bronx, balancing out the acid of the orange, but a bit more dominating in a Manhattan, and would probably push a bourbon-based one past the saccharine safety net. Of course, with the sherry backbone, Lustau Vermut is delightful neat or on ice before or after dinner, when all its botanicals can shine on their lovely own. Plus, its nuttiness makes it a perfect pair with some creamy, perhaps bleu, cheese. — George Yatchisin See lustau.es.

• Wine Guide

simply indulgent as it gets, with mac ’n’ cheese fried up with Fresno chiles and a beer cheese sauce. Though I might have liked some extra vegetable taste and texture in the interiors, I could see these quickly becoming a craving for some.

sauce, this was one of our favorites for its refreshing qualities—a lightly spicy counterweight to something hop-bitter, like a nice IPA, which Eureka! always has.

t’s hard to go wrong with the consistently good menu offerings at Eureka! Burger, the mostly West Coast chain of upscale burgers, salads, sandwiches, and craft drinks that has become a community favorite since its arrival in town. As of this spring, seekers of gourmet gold now have even more options to choose from as Eureka! has introduced several unique new menu items. I was lucky to sample a few.

he good news is that Santa Barbara County’s unemployment this March was only

5.2 percent, down from 5.5 percent the previous month and 5.6 percent this time last year, and way down from 10.5 percent during the depths of the recession. The bad news, however, is that Santa Barbara’s numbers are slightly higher than the state of California’s, 4.9 percent, and that of the nation, 4.6 percent. Aside from the statistics, there are bigger, more compelling questions that have yet to be resolved, according to Peter Rupert of UCSB’s Economic Forecast Project. For example, what impact will the immigration policies of the Donald Trump White House have on North County farmworkers, already in notori notoriously short supply given the dramatic drop in immi immi-grants crossing the Mexican border in recent years? That same question mark hovers over the South Coast’s hospitality industry, where thousands of immigrant workers fill vital “back of the house” functions. At the same time that the state’s new minimum wage is starting to take effect, Rupert reported that salaries for some occupations are starting to increase somewhat, reversing the chronic, mystifying trend of wage stagnation that had defined county labor markets for so long. As addi addiby niCk tional increases in the minimum wage take effect —eventually eventually bumping it from $10.50 to $15 an hour — Rupert said he expects Santa Barbara restaurant operators to shed labor costs by transitioning away from waiters to counter service. In places like New York, some restaurant owners are doing away with tips altogether, incor incorporating tip revenues into the cost of the meal and sharing the proceeds with other kitchen staff. To date, Rupert said, he’s seen little evidence of Santa Barbara owners following suit. Writ large — and with all the statistical caveats acknowledged — the total number of non-farm jobs in Santa Barbara County appears to have increased by about 3,800 since last March. Modest but significant gains were reported in the realm of government, education, tourism, hospitality, professional management, services, and engineering. Legal profes professional jobs flatlined; oil mining dropped. The number of retail jobs fell, as well. Wage and occupation reports constitute a statistical selfie into the state of the local economy, bursting with intriguing details. Some are so aggregated as to defy immediate application to the economic realities experienced by most people, but they provide a useful

barometer of the economy nonetheless. In terms of take-home pay, the picture is marginally rosier. The average hourly wage went from $18.04 an hour to $18.22. The mean annual pay moved incrementally from $51,390 to $53,090. Some of the stats in such reports are merely curious. For example, the number of CEOs increased by 10 countywide between 2015 and 2016, and their annual mean compensation compensation— — not counting stock options and other bonuses — remained flat at $213,000. The number of clergy plunged from 76 to 50 in the past year and their annual pay dropped from $76,000 to $64,000. In the world of media, the number of reporters and correspondents dropped from 60 to 50 in the past year, and the pay —in — in apparent contradiction of the laws of supply and demand — dropped from $42,970 to $38,310. By contrast, the number of public relations practitioners dropped far more modestly—from modestly from 210 to 190—while 190— 190 — while compensacompensa tion increased from $63,000 to $66,820. In health care, home care attendants saw their numbers drop from 620 to 530 and their pay go from $28,820 to $25,890. The ranks of doctors offering general practice services decreased from 190 to 170, but their pay went up welsh a smidgen by $1,000 to $217,000. The biggest gains gains—in in both pay and numbers — seemed gravitationally inclined toward those professions dealing with construction and real estate, reflecting the hotter pace of residential development now taking place. At the lower end of the economic ladder, the number of dishwashers went up by about 130 while their pay inched up from $21,000 a year to $24,000. The number of janitors dipped slightly — to 22,670 — and their pay bumped up $100 to $30,050. The same trend took place with maids and housekeepers. Their numbers dipped by 200, but their pay went from $24,580 to $26,710. These numbers could prove problematic, given new gender equity legislation that requires comparable pay for comparable work. Many occupational scientists regard house housekeeping and janitorial work as requiring comparable skill sets, but housekeeping is largely a female occupation, while janitorial services are dominated by males. The following snapshots are intended to shine a light on potentially interesting and n rewarding occupations for anyone seeking to navigate their career course.

Police Officer, Beat Coordinator

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? There’s kind of a love-hate relationship with the job. Every day is different, which is my favorite part, but that can bring up the unknown, which can be the worst part. On duty or off duty, you just don’t know what might happen. We all signed up for this, so there’s no ambiguity that things can happen. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? You kind of get to be your own boss. When the call board isn’t stacked with requests for service, you can decide to walk through the park to check things out after you’ve let dispatch know first. Or you can sit at a stop sign at an intersection that’s been bugging you. And you can interview to join special divisions, like crime scene investigation or narcotics. I also really like the basics, the interactions with the public. We visit classrooms — the kids are so excited by our “Batman belt”— and we get to talk with them, play on the playground with them. What personality type best thrives in this position? There’s not one that fits all. Some say type A, but some officers — out of uniform, you’d never know they were police officers. What would others find surprising about the job? [Laughs.] How much we really have to deal with every day. We deal with everything, from homicide to two neighbors arguing about a property line. What are the formal education or background experiences required? Everyone can be a police officer. We’ve had an English professor—his reports were something—and a singer. I used to work in a skate shop building decks [and] in a coffee shop. But you need to have a high school diploma, and the more education you have, the quicker you move up the ranks. I went to Cal State University-Fresno, majoring in women’s studies with a minor in criminology. My dream was to be an investigator with the District Attorney’s office, but the Fresno DA said they wanted people with a background in law enforcement. I put myself through the police academy there—here in Santa Barbara, the department will educate you—interviewed here, and fell in love with the job. I work with amazing people. — Jean Yamamura

Horticulturalist

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? Giving incorrect information, which I’m sorry to say, I probably have done in the past. Early on, I changed my thinking about being very clear with guests about what I think I know and what I actually know. I take pains to explain to the public what I’m certain of — what I’ve read or taken from my own observations — versus what are my hypotheses. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? One of the things I enjoyed most in the beginning was working with the volunteers. They’re a great group of people. Many are retired folks, but they’re also all ages, and there’s a story behind each one of them. Nowadays, I really enjoy communicating information about native plants to the public. What personality type best thrives in this position? Plants are creatures that require patience and tenacity to observe. Type A personalities might have a harder time. You need the focus to stay with the plant and watch it grow and change to find what happens when you water it this much or give it that much light. That might take days or weeks to find out. What would others find surprising about your job? That there aren’t simple answers for why a plant does or doesn’t grow. It’s a very complex equation of factors, and there’s quite a lot we still don’t know about why plants do what they do. When people come into the retail nursery asking questions, they often assume I can give them easy answers. When the conversations get longer, sometimes they’re surprised. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? There’s not a lot of formal education required. I’m mostly self-taught. I’ve kept my ears open, and I keep learning. Even before I started working in the horticulture field, I was reading about plants. Many people get a degree in horticulture, but that’s not the path I chose. I’m really lucky to be in the milieu that I am here at the garden. There are so many people I can rub up against and absorb information from. And I’m really lucky to have taken classes from Bob Haller when he was still teaching classes here. —Tyler Hayden May 11, 2017 • the Sa nta BarBara In depen den t • WO RK IT! Th e CaReeRs Is s ue

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? I don’t know that I would characterize it as scary, but there is a lot we do on a daily basis that has an impact on people’s health and business. It’s challenging to strike the correct balance of information, education, assistance, compliance, and enforcement. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? At first, I was out doing the inspections and permitting work and had direct contact on a daily basis with business operators. And now being in a management role, it’s much more in the world of dealing with systems, performance, and oversight of all of our staff. A lot of my contact with the public is in problemsolving mode. Sometimes, people are dealing with things we just really haven’t seen before and that we don’t really have a place for in our regulations. Rules are pretty stagnant and tend to be conservative, and people’s views and aspirations don’t always line up with rules. For instance, there is increasing interest in the use of gray water for irrigation and the capturing of gray water and use for some of the non-potable purposes. Some of our paradigms have shifted a little bit in terms of our willingness to look at these things and balance a bit of risk with other, bigger goals that might be worthy of pursuing. What personality type best thrives in this position? Golly, there is a bunch. A person who is going to do well in this work has to, first off, naturally enjoy working with people. If you don’t have empathy, it’s going to be really challenging. What would others find surprising about your job? People ask about restaurant codes. They ask, “Where do you eat? What do you eat?” I don’t rely on inspectors to tell me where the good food is. They can tell me where the safe food is but maybe not the best food. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? There are a couple of pathways to pursue an environmental health program degree. Most people don’t have the environmental science degree. They have a degree in one of the biological sciences or related fields. Those folks can apply for trainee status, and the state looks at their work experience. —Kelsey Brugger

What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? I think the best thing starting out was the fun of having a chance to put together a good team. There were already many excellent staff members, but there were a number of openings, especially in the curatorial ranks. We have excellent and ambitious curators, who are really the engines of a museum, and a very creative and passionate group of educators in our Education Department. Thanks to all of them, no two years are alike—in fact, no two days are alike! My favorite parts of my job now (and then) are going through our exhibitions, especially when they are just going up, and observing our education programs, particularly the Day of the Dead celebration. What personality type thrives best in this position? There are many different personality types in the museum world. There was a time when it was mainly led by more “scholarly” types; in recent years, one sees more “public relations” types in charge. As a result, there has been more emphasis at some museums on spectacular building projects and less on the art itself, which is unfortunate. At our museum, virtually the entire staff is composed of A-type personalities. If you aren’t one, there’s a good chance you’ll get run over! What would others find surprising about your job? Those not familiar with the museum world may not be aware of some of the complexities. In a sense, the museum, with its scholars and educators, is like a university or a school. We are not only in the business of educating the visitor but also, through partnership with local schools, in the business of educating the vast majority of students in Santa Barbara. We organize and present not only events involving the visual arts but also musical, theatrical, and dance performance as well as literary events. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? Over the years, the formal educational requirements have gone back and forth. In the early days, many directors needed only to come from the right families and attend the right undergraduate college. Then, as the field became more competitive, advanced degrees became de rigueur. Lately, some directors with no museum experience and little management experience have been hired at —Charles Donelan some institutions. It will be interesting to see how that works out. … May 11, 2017 • the Sa nta BarBara In depen den t • WO RK IT! Th e CaReeRs Is s ue

welding 18 years, teaching 18 years

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? I don’t really like eels. I mean, they’re pretty cool, but they’re mean-looking and have big mouths, and they just stare at you like they might take a bite. Especially wolf eels. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? As a welder, I liked the travel and the money, once I got up the food chain. With teaching, I like being around the students. I learn as much from them as they do from me. It feels good to be in a learning environment; it is very fulfilling to be able to help someone reach their hopes, dreams, and ambitions. I wake up stoked to go to school each morning, and the students and faculty are all together most days — we become family. What personality type best thrives in this position? Type A personalities. Competitive, adventurous people. I liked going places and being part of an elite team doing unique things that other people could only dream about. It’s always something new — the process and procedure are the same, but the task is always a bit different. What would others find surprising about that job? If you do it correctly, you don’t get shocked that bad, considering you’re submersed in a brine solution with a welding electrode in your hand. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? Underwater welders are required to be certified commercial divers first. In the U.S., that would be through a dive school like Santa Barbara City College’s Marine Diving Technologies program. The certification is from the Association of Commercial Diving Educators and the American National Standards Institute. Welders are also generally required to pass a practical examination using equipment and materials that replicate what they will be doing in the field. It is called a welder qualification test and is administered by a certified welding inspector. You can’t just be a good diver or good welder; you have to excel at both. Back when I was doing it, a person could just be an underwater welder. There is still a niche market for the best underwater welders, and they still travel a lot and make much better money than [in] the old days. However, it is better to think of underwater welding as another arrow in your quiver to make you a versatile and well-rounded diver that employers want. —Keith Hamm

Kristen Wieners Marc Minier Golf Pro

Senior Mammal Keeper

SAntA bArbArA Zoo 6 years

Glen Annie Golf Club Teaching 28 years, playing 49 years

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? You really want to make sure the person you’re teaching gets better. Golf can be a complicated thing, and sometimes people get worse before they get better. People need to see that they’re learning something and that they’re improving. It was that pressure. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? It was being able to make a difference, especially with the juniors. You don’t just teach lessons, but you establish a bond and it remains. With younger golfers, I’m helping them develop specific skills, but I’m also helping them develop confidence and the ability to socialize. A lot of them are at the age where their parents can’t really teach them. There’s friction. I can be their friend and mentor. My daughter is 15. She’s a very fine golfer and a very fine lady. I enjoy watching her grow in golf and in life. What personality type thrives best in this position? I’ve had to learn to become more a psychologist than a teacher. Everyone learns differently. You can’t teach everybody the same way. You have to adapt to their own particular learning track and teach them their way. I’m teaching very specific skills, but I’m also teaching how to read a whole environment. You play tennis or basketball, and you have the court pretty much as-is. When you golf, the grass is different, the wind is different, and you have to be able to shift your approach in response. What would others find surprising about your job? A lot of people think I’m living the lifestyle they’d like to be living. It’s fun, to be sure, but it’s also hard work. I teach 14 lessons a day. I give 40 lessons a week. I work from 8:30 in the morning, and I stay ’til about 7 p.m. I’m out here all day. Doing what I do, you really want to help the person. You feel their shot. You feel their pain. You feel their joy. At the end of the day, that’s a lot of emotion. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? I am a PGA-certified instructor. It helped that I had four years of college at UCSB. But you need to complete a three-year apprenticeship as well. And you need to take three week-long classes put on by the PGA. Lots of written materials. At the end of each, you take a four-hour test. It’s like the —Nick Welsh SATs. The pass rate is something like 28 percent.

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? Working with wild animals; I’d say getting used to that was the biggest thing. I started with macaws and a serval and a porcupine at another facility and then shifted over to gray wolves. You’re looking at this animal, and it looks like a dog, but no; it’s a wild animal, and they remind you of that. It’s a little intimidating. Then shifting to the big cats and all of a sudden you’re working with a 300-pound lion that is just as tall as you. What did you like best when you began your career? What do you like best now? When I first began, it was the fact that I could make a career working with amazing animals. Every single day of my life, I get to go to work and work with these amazing creatures. And I get paid to do it. [Laughs.] It’s kind of shifted over the six years. Now for me it’s really connecting our guests with these animals and sharing the conservation story. Like the amur leopard — no one really knows they exist. That there are only 60 left in the wild and that we are making a difference to save that species is incredible. So my shift has been to share that with our guests and share my passion. What personality type best thrives in this position? A lot of personality types do well; we are a very diverse group of people. What we all have in common is a passion for what we do; for animals; for making sure they are happy, healthy, really well taken care of; and [spreading the] conservation message. What would others find surprising about your job? That it’s more than just picking up poop. [Laughs.] What people seem to be surprised by when they ask me that question is the amount of training that we do with our animals and that we are able to train big cats to participate in their health care. And we don’t force them to do that; it’s always their choice. People are always surprised [that we] can train a lion to take a vaccination. … [Also], we spend a lot of time with the guests. We do keeper talks … we do a lot of behind-the-scenes tours. I spend a lot of time out on the public side. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? It depends on the individual facility. At Santa Barbara Zoo, we require a background in biological sciences, so animal science, biology, zoology. I personally have a four-year degree. A lot of facilities are shifting to that higher education and then wanting a lot of experience behind it … any experience with animals so you can start to read [their] body language and subtle cues, [which] will —Michelle Drown benefit anybody in this career.

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? I started out at Able Engineering, building a rotary joint for the International Space Station’s solar array, but when I went out on my own, I learned that the patent on such an object is not frequently used. Market research is really necessary. I had made a $100 device, except only about 600 are needed per year. I spent several years consulting, eating mac ’n’ cheese, before my company got off the ground. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? I got into engineering through art and design. Engineering allows art, but it’s a lot harder to get art to finance engineering, like kinetic sculpture, for instance. My pinnacle project, the one that challenged all my engineering experience, is this massively articulating surgical robot. It’s like a third arm for a surgeon. Getting the 10 separately moving pieces to move together as the surgeon directs was difficult on the software side, but it was also a packaging nightmare, like a puzzle. The 3D printer makes all the difference. They’re 10-12 times faster than machining a model, and you can produce a piece at a time. I can work the bits out rather than the whole, and then, holding it, carrying it around, I can think about how to make it better. What personality type best thrives in this position? Well, as a kid, my parents were happy if my toys lasted more than a day. I’d take them apart; I couldn’t ever put them back together, either. But drawing and inventing all the time, the mechanical left side of the brain got a workout and also the creative and artistic right side of the brain. What would others find surprising about the job? I’ve found that when you’re on the way to an impossible goal, spin-offs happen. Your work may not be taking you to where you thought you were going, but don’t feel bad. You’ll end up somewhere, and you’ll embrace it. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? I went to Cal Poly for a bachelor’s in aeronautics, but my scores weren’t good enough, so I went into physics. But I worked with the aeronautics team as an illustrator for a human-powered flight project, so I —Jean Yamamura got my toe in the door for aerospace that way.

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? When you’re young and new, it’s the fires. As you get more experienced, you learn how many more hazards there really are. The fires become one of the last of your worries. Most fatalities are in aviation, driving, falling trees. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? At first, it was all about being able to work out outside, being in the woods like where I grew up in Mariposa. Working with my hands and trying to improve our forests were big. Now, it’s working with and being able to influence all these amazing young men and women. I’m just constantly getting to meet incredible people—uncommon people coming together to reach a common goal. It’s a really diverse group. They come from all walks of life. What personality type best thrives in this position? Someone who likes teamwork, can work well with others, and who’s accountable—accountable to themselves and to their crew from November through May. That needs to be their priority. What would others find surprising about your job? The amount of sacrifice that goes into it. We work 16-hour shifts for 14 straight days. We call them tours; I’ve done six back-to-back. A lot of the time, we don’t have cell phone coverage. Our families and friends really sacrifice, too. All summer, you might get two to four days off a month to spend with them. We also get pretty fatigued toward the end of the season, but I don’t want to say it’s a negative job. I’ve had some of the best times of my life in fires. I work with amazing people, and we keep morale up. I think it’s the best job in the world. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? That’s one of the great things about being a Hot Shot. You just need a high school degree or equivalent. I was fresh out of high school when I joined. There are others who have four-year-college degrees and decided office life wasn’t for them. Overall, it’s a really diverse group. You might be surprised when you see me — I have a lot of tattoos on my throat, hands, arms. We’re extremely professional, but it’s —Tyler Hayden nice to have that kind of leniency. Everyone’s welcome.

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? How many eyes were gazing on my very first words when I was introduced to the school. Same goes for being introduced to the families. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? The best thing about the job was meeting new people. I knew I belonged when the students reached out to me with their problems prior to making the wrong decisions. My favorite part now is the stronger relationships I’ve built with these new people. What personality type best thrives in this position? An “understanding” personality. You have to take in multiple perspectives, ideas, and beliefs to help facilitate the most informed decisions that affect the most students. When things are not going according to plan, I try to read up on the most recent research to help sharpen my understanding. I like to talk to other administrators, especially in other districts, to see how they approach problems. Many of my topics of conversation deal with engaging students and making sure they are being taught at their potential. What would others find surprising about your job? It requires a lot of time, and much of it is spent dealing with adults rather than students. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? Formal education requirements are a teaching credential and an administrative credential. Being able to speak Spanish helps with the population I serve. [If it were up to me,] I would allow teachers to take on administrative roles. This would allow our talented teacher leaders to start exploring [leadership opportunities]. —Keith Hamm 14

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? The scariest part at that time was when we — my wife, Erica, and I — found out we were being considered for this position on the same day we found out we were expecting a child. We knew our life was gonna change right then. Also, I was sort of a little bit nervous with my inexperience of the position at the time. I probably wouldn’t have been considered for any other place except here, because I was so familiar with its logistics.

What was the scariest thing about your job when you first started? Being a musician isn’t a scary job. I guess just being the new guy and trying to fit in. What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? The quality of the symphony was much better than I thought it would be. I didn’t know anything about Santa Barbara when I moved here. I came from New York City, and Santa Barbara was much smaller. But the quality of the orchestra was much better than I expected, and it just keeps getting better and better. What kind of personality type thrives in your positon? We tend to think of ourselves as the calm, stable, patient personalities. What would others find surprising about your job? Just how much concentration is required to play in a symphony orchestra. People don’t understand how much focus it takes. Even when you’re not playing — and not playing for a while — you have to be keeping track so that when you come back in, you come back at exactly the right place. You always have to know exactly where you are. The whole time. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? About 100 percent of the members studied music in college or attended a music school. I attended Juilliard. —Nick Welsh

What did you like best when you began? What do you like best now? It’s an honor to hold this position. Just being offered this was the best feeling ever. Only one person has this position in all of S.B., and the S.B. Bowl is a pretty neat place. … You just take a lot of pride in it when you have a good team around you, and the place — it feels like it’s better than it’s ever been. It makes you proud to be such a key role in that. What personality type best thrives in this position? Well, you have to be flexible. Every show day is different. There’s no recipe to making everything work. You have to be friendly and open and be very approachable because you’re working the tour with very professional people you’ve never met before. What would others find surprising about your job? It’s more involved than people think it is. A show day starts at 6 a.m. and ends at 2 a.m. and goes through different roles all day long. You start the morning off with trucks and buses, and then different departments all start to roll in throughout the day. The promoters crew, the security ushers — they all kind of come to you with everything that they need done or answered. You don’t really get a whole lot of time to enjoy the shows. What are the formal education or background experiences required for your job? Mine was all learned hands-on on this property. Like I say, I probably would never have been considered for this position anywhere else than right here, and I wouldn’t want to do it anywhere else than right here, too. —Richie DeMaria May 11, 2017 • the Sa nta BarBara In depen den t • WO RK IT!

When I interviewed Sun Sushi co-owner Max Kuo, who used to work at Ichiban on the Mesa, I got the impression that his new restaurant offers serious quality and is run by management and chefs who know what they are doing. I would recommend sushi lovers give them a try. Sun Sushi has been remodeled and updated since the Ahi Sushi days. They use only fresh fish that is never frozen. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, they serve fish that is flown in from Japan. Kuo suggests you try their “Sushi-6-Steps” offerings: sushi served on six wooden steps that form a staircase emerging from your table, with soup and salad. The Salmon 6-Steps ($18.96) includes six styles of sushi from three types of salmon (Scotty, Atlantic, and Ocean-Trout). The Tuna6-Steps ($37.95) offers six styles of sushi using exclusively bluefin tuna. Call 845-7720.

When it comes to gophers, poisoning and trapping are successful control methods, but continued vigilance is necessary when employing conventional control methods. the rodents may go unnoticed until depredations begin, especially where grasses and weeds obscure evidence of burrowing activity. By then your garden may be in shambles. Call the experts at your local pest control company for help.

If you’ve been looking for a way in to gin but don’t appreciate the fresh smack of pine many can provide, Bluecoat could be the spirit for you. Of course, its main botanical is juniper — it is a gin, after all — but Philadelphia Distilling has opted to go for a less piney juniper berry, and then they infuse a combo of unspeciunspeci fied citrus peels that make this a perfect mixer for cocktails that also lean citrus (think an Aviation, or even a Corpse Reviver #2). It is about as smooth a gin as you can tipple, especially since it’s oak-barrel-aged. If you want a macho martini, look elseelse where. But if you want a sipping gin, hunt down this pretty blue bottle. — George Yatchisin See bluecoatgin.com.

Omar SOuleyman C meS CO S tO tO S.B. Syrian Folk-EDM icon PErForMS May 15 at StorkE Plaza 4·1·1

Omar Souleyman and UCSB’s Middle East Ensemble perform Monday, May 15, 6 p.m., at UCSB’s Storke Plaza. See events.ucsb.edu/event.

holding shows in his community has been complicated by the ongoing Syrian civil war, and in a letter penned to his home country, he dedicated “all future Omar Souleyman shows … to help Syrian people fleeing to a better life elsewhere. Omar Souleyman is a refugee himself, but not an exile, alone providing for a family of 30. Together with all willing promoters of his shows he conspires to raise funds to aid the refugees in flight from Syrian situation.” His newest album, To Syria With Love, will be released on June 2. Playing alongside Omar Souleyman is the UCSB Middle East Ensemble, an “ethnomusicology performance group” composed of 40-45 orchestral musicians, 10-12 singers, and up to a dozen dancers, though the group performs in various sizes depending on the show. The ensemble “performs music and dance from Arab, Turkish, Persian, Armenian, Greek, Sephardic and Oriental Jewish, Kurdish, and Assyrian cultures,” and seeks to reflect and promote awareness of “the great diversity of cultures found in the Middle East.” Their music is often fast-paced, boasting a rich sound constructed by a variety of traditional Middle Eastern instruments, with an “extended cabaret-style dance set” at the end of most performances. — Kyle Roe

interview in Ahram Online with journalist/ professor Omar Al-Ghazzi, the “music was mixed in studio and Souleyman had no say in the process of production and, as he was keen to tell me, he did not have much input in determining the profit he would make off the album sales.” He and Björk never met in person to work on the remixes. After being signed by “extra-geographical” Seattle record label Sublime Frequencies (he’s now signed to Mad Decent), Souleyman expanded his global following through a decade of world tours accompanied by keyboardist Rizan Sa’id and saz (Turkish lute) player Khaled Youssef. The prospect of

Best.Cover.ever. You can’t change a channel these days without finding a new, fab reality TV competition designed to pluck talented artists from obscurity and slingshot them to stardom. The latest comes from Ryan Seacrest Productions and takes advantage of YouTube’s foray into original programming. Hosted by Ludacris (pictured), the show is called Best.Cover.Ever., and its premise is summed up in its title: Unknown singers are asked to submit an original video of themselves covering a song by one of the high-profile artists participating in the series. For the first round of submissions, which ends Friday, May 19, contenders can choose “As Long As You Love Me” by the Backstreet Boys, “Confident” by Demi Lovato, or “Trumpets” by Jason Derulo. The winner has an opportunity to duet with the famous singer. For all the submission details and more about the series, see thebestcoverever.com. —Michelle Drown

lege and community radio station KCSB-FM 91.9 will host Syrian folk-EDM sensation Omar Souleyman alongside the UCSB Music Department’s Middle East Ensemble, in a celebration of Middle Omar Souleyman Eastern music past and present. The concert is taking place at Storke Plaza on the UCSB campus, and it seeks to raise awareness of the evolving humanitarian crisis unfolding in Syria and provide attendees with options for participating in relief efforts. From cutting his teeth on wedding dance floors throughout his home region of Al-Hasakah (formerly Al-Jazira), Syria, where he used to sing part-time, to gracing the stage of Oslo Spektrum Arena, where he performed in the annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert in 2013, Omar Souleyman has recordings that have garnered an impressively large audience in his community and worldwide. His sound, though it draws from many styles of Middle-Eastern folk, mainly augments traditional dabke music with drum machines and heavily modulated keyboards, adding a contemporary twist to a style of music and dance that spans millennia. He has called his sound “popular heritage music.” The music video for 2013’s Four Tet–produced “Warni Warni,” off the album Wenu

Wenu, helped propel him to international fame, gathering more than 16 million views on YouTube. A few successful remixes on Björk’s Crystalline Series EPs didn’t hurt, either, though the nature of their collaboration was a bit unbalanced. According to an

Painting by Garrett Speirs

Carp artiStS t tS StudiO tOurS ur urS Numerous canvases hang on the gallery walls of the Carpinteria Arts Center. While the multicolored streaks of paint captivate onlookers, the signatures of their creators at the bottom of each canvas are often overlooked. The Artists Studio Tour, organized by the Carpinteria Arts Center, puts a friendly face to these names. This Mother’s Day weekend, May 13-14, 10 a.m.5 p.m., more than 30 professional artists in the Carpinteria and Summerland communities will open their studios to the public. In this free exhibit, visitors have the opportunity to see where the artistic magic unfolds. The Carp Arts Center established the tour in 2007 to promote the work of area professional-level artists. Like a modern-day treasure hunt, detailed maps direct visitors to the studios of participating artists. But rather than gold, guests will find each painter’s, ceramicist’s, and photographer’s charming workspaces. “Some artists paint in their living rooms and kitchens. It’s interesting to see where they work,” said Gary Campopiano, Arts Center boardmember and an artist on the tour. Artists’ spaces tend to be as unique as the pieces they display; the studio tour highlights their unique styles instead of a theme. “Whatever the artist’s style is, is what you see,” said Campopiano, who will showcase his acrylic and watercolor paintings, although he looks forward to the lithographic print studio of Garrett Speirs, a first-time open-studio participant. Visitors can expect to see a wide variety of working environments and artistic styles. They may also have the opportunity to purchase art pieces at a discounted rate. A portion of the sales will go toward supporting area artists and other programs organized by the Carpinteria Arts Center. For more information, see carpinteriaartscenter.org. —Naomi Zaldate

Lynsey Addario

Lynsey AddArio Comes to UCsB

hen I mentioned to photojournalist Lynsey Addario over the phone that I read her memoir, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, and found it both stirring and terrifying, she laughed and said, “Aren’t you glad you’re not my mother?” It’s a sobering question considering the life-and-death situations with which Addario is constantly confronted in her job as a war correspondent — she’s been kidnapped twice. Selfishly, I am glad she chose the path she did, as Addario has documented some of the Middle East’s most pivotal moments of the past decade, from the fall of Saddam Hussein to the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan to the Libyan civil war. What she captures is far more than combat stills — she illuminates the humanity of the men, women, and children living in battle zones trying to carry on semblances of “normal” existence: going to school, having babies, providing for family, etc. In doing so, Addario reveals that we have far more in common with people of differing cultures than we may have thought. From her home in London — which she shares with her husband, journalist Paul de Bendern, and their 5-year-old son — Addario spoke about spending time in war zones, the sexism she experiences on the job, and the responsibility she feels to show the world the consequences of our foreign policies. The following is an abbreviated version of our conversation. For the full interview, see independent.com/ lynseyaddario.

Nat Geo PhotoGraPher talks aBoUt life as a War CorresPoNdeNt

I find your profession both scary and enviable; to be in the middle of the fray — I imagine there is nothing like it. When I first witnessed what it was like to watch history unfold, I mean, there was no substitute. It’s exhilarating, and I started to feel this sense of responsibility immediately because I felt like most Americans — who make up the bulk of whatever readership I’m working for — don’t get the chance to witness what I witness, so I felt like it’s very important that I’m here and show them what’s happening on the ground. These are the fruits of our foreign policy; this is where our troops are fighting. I felt like it’s really important to be here. How do you cope with that burden of responsibility? It’s hard because I’m a pretty intense person and I don’t have an off switch, really. So once I started doing this work, I just felt like there was no end in sight. One of the things I always struggle with is that I kind of always want to be in a hundred different places at once. Obviously, that’s not possible, but I never feel like I’m doing enough. I always feel like I’m sort of struggling with [the] need to be doing more.

by Michelle Drown You’ve spoken about being a female photographer in war-torn places. It must be disheartening to have men make assessments of your capability — or liability — based on your gender. I think [that] whether or not people admit it, the sexism is incredibly pervasive today in the year 2017. I’ve been doing this job for 23 years, and it still exists. I still have to fight to prove myself in a way that I’m sure my male colleagues don’t, and that is incredibly frustrating. But my philosophy has always been to just get on with it, to just show rather than sit around and complain. To just do the work and to try and do it better than anyone else or to try and do the best I possibly can. It’s not that it’s not frustrating, but it’s just a fact. This is, sadly, how it still is. You mention in your book that you are a shy person. But to take the photos you take, you have to get right up in the melee. Does being behind the lens embolden you? I started out shy; there was no question I was terrified to photograph people. Now I think it takes a lot for me to be intimidated. I observe a lot when I’m working. I feel like my greatest asset is to be able to just hang out and observe and then figure out how to tell a story. But I also feel like the camera enables me access to places that obviously I would never have access to [otherwise]. I think it’s kind of an excuse to sort of butt into people’s lives. Obviously, why would a complete stranger let me into the delivery room? Or why would a complete stranger let me photograph the funeral of their mother? These are, for me, such great privileges to be able to witness those things. I think, also, being a woman helps because I think that I’m seen as sort of less threatening. But I also think it’s in the approach. We all have different techniques with how we approach a subject. Your photos capture people in intimate moments — experiencing loss, birth, fear, family, celebration, war — showing that their lives are similar to our own despite the separation of culture, etc. That’s my point. That’s exactly my goal, to connect these two very different worlds. How can I show that Iraqi women are just like us? Or Syrian women? Sure, they might be refugees, but they’re women, just like us. They want the best for their children. They want a home. They want security. We might have these huge cultural divides, but we’re all the same at the end of the day.

These days feel more frightening than ever, with the philosophy of our president being “us versus them.” Has that changed anything in terms of your job? Maybe makes it more important than ever? It was really disheartening when [Trump] came in and implemented the Muslim ban, for example, because I feel like,“Oh my god, you are basically doing recruitment for ISIS.” … It’s hard for me because I’ve spent the last 17 years in the Middle East and in the Muslim world, and I’ve been treated with such incredible respect and generosity and hospitality and I think that it’s very easy for people to just label things and people they don’t know. The harder thing is to actually take the time to get to know them. How do you cope with the long periods of waiting for the action? It seems a job of contrasts — durations of downtime and then go, go, go. How did you deal with it? So much of international journalism and being a war correspondent or a photographer is waiting. The best stories usually entail a tremendous amount of waiting. I think that that’s something that most people don’t realize, but that is the reality. [You] just have to make sure you’re there when everything goes down, and the only way to do that, because so much of this is unpredictable, is actually just being there and waiting. … That’s something that I could do in my twenties and thirties. Now I have a child, and so it’d be a lot harder for me to go into a situation where there was no exit with a 5-year-old because, God forbid, [if] something ever happened to him, I’d need to get out. Is there anything you would like to say about your job or what’s going on in the world today? I think that there’s always this misconception that people who cover war are adrenaline junkies, and I think that the most important thing is to realize that adrenaline has nothing to do [with it for me]. Look, everyone’s different, so everyone has different reasons for covering war. But me personally, and a lot of the great correspondents that I know, don’t do this for the adrenaline; they do it because they believe that the public has the right to know what’s happening and to know about human rights and abuses, to know about the repercussions of our foreign policy. So I think it’s important to dispel that misconception that it’s all about the adrenaline.

Pete Yorn

A Mother’s DAy of Music by Richie DeMaria

GET IN THE ZONE: Sunday is Mother’s Day, and if you’re in the mood for some good bonding this weekend, why not take her to a concert? For a very non-traditional experience, consider taking her to the Drone Zone. For 24 straight hours, Funzone will host 20-plus musicians for 24 hours of ambient, drone, and noise soundscapes, providing a solid block of prolonged, hypnotic waves and washes of tones and timbres from synths, guitars, computers, and more. Many of the musicians hail from the S.B. region. The event boasts the stated goal of “inspiring, provoking thought, and providing a meditative listening experience and working art space for attendees.” Bring open ears, an open mind, and perhaps an open journal or sketchbook page, allowing your thoughts to meditate in the midst of massive musical mists. The droning begins Friday, May 12, at 8 p.m. and continues through Saturday, May 13, until 8 p.m. inside the East Beach Batting Cages (226 S. Milpas St.). YOU & YORN’S: Your mother may also be happy to know that Pete Yorn is coming to Velvet Jones (423 State St.) on Thursday, May 11, with his You & Me solo acoustic tour. Yorn is known to deal in pronouns, as one of his first projects was to make the score for the Jim Carrey film Me, Myself & Irene. He rose to musical prominence with 2001’s Musicforthemorningafter, and he most recently released ArrangingTime in 2016. Hear the man and his music starting at 7 p.m. YOU GOTTA GARUDA: Hotel Garuda, the EDM sensations who found success on SoundCloud, will make Velvet Jones a great place to dance on Saturday, May 13, starting at 8:30 p.m. Formed by deejay/producer duo Manila Killa & Candle Weather, who met in middle school in Indonesia, the group’s unique take on house music has tallied millions of listens and multiple Hype Machine picks. Brooklyn’s Wingtip will join. POUR ME SOME POOR MAN’S WHISKEY: If dancing to banjos is more your style, you’re in luck, as Poor Man’s Whiskey is back in town. Like whiskey, known for its simultaneously invigorating and relaxing burn, the good time provided by Poor Man’s Whiskey will fire you up and ease your worries all at once. It’ll kick up the jams once again at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Friday, May 12, at 9:30 p.m. in a near-yearly tradition for the homegrown act. For those who have followed the storied troupe of bluegrassers, they’ve continued their Californian kind of Appalachia ever since beginning in the Isla Vista environs, covering Paul Simon’s Graceland and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Catch them at SOhO, and hear what new kinds of good times they’re whipping up.

HEAD TO HEADLESS HOUSEHOLD: Speaking of recurring regional acts, the always fascinating Headless Household will return to SOhO on Sunday, May 14, with a 1 p.m. afternoon performance presented by the S.B. Jazz Society. What makes them so compelling is their daring decision to continually forge forward with nonstop, unbounded creativity, genres and confinements be damned. Theirs is an unusually inventive kind of music in a town sometimes known for its comfortable cultural complacency. Hear what new tunes they’ve cooked up as a post-brunch repast, and enjoy an inventive afternoon. A MAP TO MUSIC: Hump Day is always something to be gotten over, and thankfully, We The Beat will help you get over any midweek blues with a performance by Bay Area–based band Geographer. With bright synths and bright colors, the band has made a creative cartography of indie-rock themes around kites and animal shapes. May it be a welcome return to innocence in the midweek mire of work and responsibility at SOhO on n Wednesday, May 17, at 9 p.m.

n Becoming Leonardo: An Exploded View of the Life of Leonardo da Vinci, Mike Lankford sets his goal as stripping the halo from da Vinci and placing the reader across the table from Leonardo the man, dirty fingernails and all. Many people rightly associate da Vinci with masterpieces such as “The Last Supper” and the “Mona Lisa,” his sketch of the “Vitruvian Man,” and perhaps with his polymathic notebooks. Or they’ve heard that da Vinci was a genius of the Renaissance, a contemporary of Michelangelo. Lankford, while steeped in historical resources, dates, and places, doesn’t get bogged down in dry recitations of facts; he’s always trying to get at da Vinci the man, even if that means taking liberties as a novelist might. Becoming Leonardo is not a romanticized biography. Lankford speculates, supposes, and makes assumptions about the impact and implications of da Vinci’s illegitimate birth to a woman who may have been a domestic servant (and possibly a slave), his distant father, and da Vinci’s sexuality. Life in da Vinci’s time was difficult and often brief, with an average life expectancy of 40 years. Wars raged as did diseases like

the plague and syphilis; a fall on the uneven streets of Florence might leave one crippled. Da Vinci was always keenly aware of the fleeting nature of existence. Da Vinci’s talent for drawing and music became apparent early, but in no way made his existence easy or secure. In 15th-century Italy, artists and craftsmen depended on the patronage of dukes and bishops and princes, who could be capricious, demanding, and cruel. Foul up or flake on a commission for a noble or the church, as da Vinci did more than once, and you might find yourself unemployable. da Vinci’s existence was often tenuous. For all his abilities — as a painter, military engineer for hire, sculptor, and dreamer dreamer— da Vinci was obsessed with his failings and limitations. “We think of him,” Lankford writes, “as a universal genius but his own intense self-perception was of his limitations and lack of knowledge. That was a hole he kept trying to fill and never could.” What comes through Becoming Leonardo are da Vinci’s humanity, foibles, and imperfections alongside his gifts. In Lankford’s hands, da Vinci isn’t objectified. He is, as Lankford writes,“sitting across the table covered in ordinary sunlight.” — Brian Tanguay

ood stories, storytellers say, have a mix of comedy and tragedy. Great storytellers, like David Sedaris, know you can’t often separate comedy and tragedy, and that life is both one big joke suffused with sadness and one bleak sermon alit with laughter. At the Arlington Theatre, Wed., May 3. Knowing his S.B. audience, he opened with ferociously funny recollections on the weary and dreary days of the 2016 election and the interpersonal divides we all faced. The highlight was a heart-wrenching story in which Sedaris used the absurdity of intervention and reality T.V. as a springboard to humanize his mother’s struggles with drinking, he and his siblings tenderly helping her along with a mix of innocence, grace, and

two action-packed sets, the members of OCMS steered a course through Dylan’s classic double album Blonde on Blonde, sticking to the original song order while tinkering with many of the other parameters laid down back in 1966. Although tunes were sometimes transposed into new keys or modified in tempo for certain sections, the focus and intensity of the original was never compromised. In many instances, a new ebullience was added — the joy of a younger generation celebrating the discovery of a deep and lasting musical legacy.

With three singers taking turns on the vocals, no single member stood out as most similar to Dylan, or most different, but there was certainly something extraordinary about the way that Ketch Secor added his soaring violin solos to such great songs as “Visions of Johanna.” It may be too soon to start calling Dylan’s songs great in the way that we call the compositions of Bach and Beethoven great, but these wonderfully wellcrafted versions of his songs might be the right place to start. —Charles Donelan

Gustavo Dudamel put At the Granada on a dazzling display Theatre, Sun., May 7. from the podium, conducting the program in his inimitable, fullbodied manner and without a score. Dudamel has his own approach to everything, even the way he calls attention to players who deserve special recognition. Rather than nod and point from the podium, he wades in among the music stands, shaking hands and sharing a few quiet words of praise with, for example, cellist Ben Hong after he played a beautiful solo in the concert’s first work, the Symphony No. 1 in D Major, D. 82 of Franz Schubert. DeYoung’s formidable presence would overshadow many orchestras, but not this one. Listening to the duel between her highly expressive vocals and the equally idiosyncratic music Gustav Mahler wrote for them in his Songs of a Wayfarer was like hearing a tragic opera in miniature.

home with the weight of passion, and these four highly symphonic songs made a useful counterpoint to the songful symphonies of Schubert that bookended them. The concert’s finale, Schubert’s Symphony No. 2 in B-flat Major, D. 125, was a whirlwind showcase for the rhythmic precision and subtle articulation Dudamel coaxes from his strings. These first two symphonies, written when Schubert was still in his teens, contain many beautiful melodies and a strong presentiment of greatness to come in the young composer. —CD

Movie Guide

his month, UCSB’s Carsey-Wolf Center (CWC) is hosting Trans Media, a multi-night series of films created by or about transgender and gender-nonconforming people, at the Pollock Theater. The series is a timely one. With shows like Amazon’s Transparent and Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, trans-focused works have introduced nonbinary lives to a wider audience than ever. UCSB film professor Patrice Petro, the Dick Wolf Director of the CWC and presidential chair in Media Studies, oversaw the series curation and felt it was high time to introduce audiences to an array of film pieces. “There was a lot of new work out there by trans people both in front of and behind the camera,” she said. The series will feature post-screening Q&As. Last Thursday, May 4, Raising Zoey screened, a documentary about a family’s experience as their child transitions gender identities, with a Q&A by director Dante Alencastre. It was followed by two episodes from Transparent on Saturday, May 6, with Professor Amy Villarejo leading the Q&A. On Wednesday, May 10, Director Jacqueline (Jac) Gares spoke after a screening of her documentary Free Cece, about the survivor of a hate crime. Still to come, on Tuesday, May 23, Director Kortney Ryan Ziegler will give a talk following the screening of his documentary Still Black: A Portrait of Black Transmen. The series concludes on Thursday, May 25, with Tangerine, a buddy film in the tradition of Thelma & Louise, about a trans prostitute and her friend, with an appearance by lead Mya Taylor. Petro thought it was especially important to diverge from more clichéd accounts of transgender lives and to offer audiences a chance to think more expansively and critically about trans portrayals. “I wanted to move away from [how] the trans issues have been represented since the beginning of cinema — in the last couple of decades, there’s been a number about trans people who are murdered or are murderers or are frightening or pathetic or dead,” she said.“I thought

it was really important to carry a series that highlights the work of media makers in the trans community that really try to produce a different view of what it is to just live.” “I don’t feel like we’ve been fully embraced as people,” agreed Tangerine’s Taylor. Trans themes make for well-received films —“as long as it’s we’re getting killed and being victims,” she said. “I cannot tell you how many auditions I have done for how many prostitution roles.” — while series such as LaVerne Cox’s Doubt, about a trans lawyer, quickly get canceled. Taylor also hopes her work and the series itself will inspire gender-nonconforming performers and artists to continue despite the odds. “Before I got discovered for Tangerine, I had applied for 86 jobs in one month and I didn’t get one,” she said. She recalled a long, difficult streak of unemployment, which she feels was largely due to discrimination. Her advice: “Don’t give up, and don’t trust nobody, and follow your own rules.” With its Trans Media series, the CWC will help, in its way, to break the usual cinematic boundaries and rules and open audience’s eyes to a wider lens.

NOW SHOWiNG (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) Paseo Nuevo

The Circle The Circle (110 mins., R) Based on Dave Eggers’s 2013 book of the same name, this sci-fi-tinged film stars Emma Watson as Mae, who gets a job at the world’s largest tech company only to find that the corporation is involved in nefarious experiments that threaten privacy, ethics, and personal freedom. It also stars Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, and Bill Paxton, in his last film role. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo The Dinner (120 mins., R) Based on the novel by Dutch author Herman Koch, this drama/thriller explores the lengths that parents will go to keep their children safe.

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 (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 — and ultimately imparts the valuable, though difficult to confront, lesson of the circle of life.

O Beauty and the Beast

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.

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). Fairview/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.

Paseo Nuevo

➤O Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer (117 mins., R) “Trust me”— those are always fraught words. But when followed by “something good will happen,” oh, look out. Norman, written and directed by Joseph Cedar, is either about a boundless optimist or a thick-skinned operator, but whichever way you take him, Norman, played by Richard Gere, is never short of charming. When the quintessential back-scratcher befriends an aspiring politician (Lior Ashkenazi) on the mean streets of New York, the storyline’s hapless humor tilts, which soon begins twisting around Norman’s attempts to “help.” With the refreshingly unpredictable plot comes a readily recognizable cast — from Harris Yulin and Steve Buscemi to Dan Stevens and Michael Sheen, with a delicately coldblooded performance by Charlotte Gainsbourg — not to mention some jaw-dropping split-screen editing.

CANCER

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): The process by which Zoo Jeans are manufactured is unusual. First, workers wrap and secure sheets of denim around car tires or big rubber balls, and take their raw creations to the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan. There the denim-swaddled objects are thrown into pits where tigers or lions live. As the beasts roughhouse with their toys, they rip holes in the cloth. Later, the material is retrieved and used to sew the jeans. Might this story prove inspirational for you in the coming weeks? I suspect it will. Here’s one possibility: You could arrange for something wild to play a role in shaping an influence you will have an intimate connection with.

(June 21-July 22): You are free to reveal yourself in your full glory. For once in your life, you have cosmic clearance to ask for everything you want without apology. This is the LATER you have been saving yourself for. Here comes the reward for the hard work you’ve been doing that no one has completely appreciated. If the universe has any prohibitions or inhibitions to impose, I don’t know what they are. If old karma has been preventing the influx of special dispensations and helpful X-factors, I suspect that old karma has at least temporarily been neutralized.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “Kiss the flame and it is yours,” teased the poet Thomas Lux. What do you think he was hinting at? It’s a metaphorical statement, of course. You wouldn’t want to literally thrust your lips and tongue into a fire. But according to my reading of the astrological omens, you might benefit from exploring its meanings. Where to begin? May I suggest you visualize making out with the steady burn at the top of a candle? My sources tell me that doing so at this particular moment in your evolution will help kindle a new source of heat and light in your deep self — a fresh fount of glowing power that will burn sweet and strong like a miniature sun.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your symbol of power during the next three weeks is a key. Visualize it. What picture pops into your imagination? Is it a bejeweled golden key like what might be used to access an old treasure chest? Is it a rustic key for a garden gate or an oversized key for an ornate door? Is it a more modern thing that locks and unlocks car doors with radio waves? Whatever you choose, Gemini, I suggest you enshrine it as an inspirational image in the back of your mind. Just assume that it will subtly inspire and empower you to find the metaphorical “door” that leads to the next chapter of your life story.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions,” said Irish writer Oscar Wilde.“I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.” In my opinion, that may be one of the most radical vows ever formulated. Is it even possible for us human beings to gracefully manage our unruly flow of feelings? What you do in the coming weeks could provide evidence that the answer to that question might be yes. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you are now in a position to learn more about this high art than ever before.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Africa’s highest mountain is Mount Kilimanjaro. Though it’s near the equator, its peak is covered year-round with glaciers. In 2001, scientists predicted that global warming would melt them all by 2015. But that hasn’t happened. The ice cap is still receding slowly. It could endure for a while, even though it will eventually disappear. Let’s borrow this scenario as a metaphor for your use, Virgo. First, consider the possibility that a certain thaw in your personal sphere isn’t unfolding as quickly as you anticipated. Second, ruminate on the likelihood that it will, however, ultimately come to pass. Third, adjust your plans accordingly.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Will sex be humdrum and predictable in the coming weeks? No! On the contrary,

your interest in wandering out to the frontiers of erotic play could rise quite high. You may be animated and experimental in your approach to intimate communion, whether it’s with another person or with yourself. Need any suggestions? Check out the “butterfliesin-flight” position or the “spinning wheel of roses” maneuver. Try the “hum-and-chuckle kissing dare” or the “churning radiance while riding the rain cloud” move. Or just invent your own variations and give them funny names that add to the adventure.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Right now, the word “simplicity” is irrelevant. You’ve got silky profundities to play with, slippery complications to relish, and lyrical labyrinths to wander around in. I hope you use these opportunities to tap into more of your subterranean powers. From what I can discern, your deep dark intelligence is ready to provide you with a host of fresh clues about who you really are and where you need to go. P.S.: You can become better friends with the shadows without compromising your relationship to the light.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can bake your shoes in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, but that won’t turn them into loaves of bread. Know what I’m saying, Sagittarius? Just because a chicken has wings doesn’t mean it can fly over the rainbow. Catch my drift? You’ll never create a silk purse out of dental floss and dead leaves. That’s why I offer you the following advice: In the next two weeks, do your best to avoid paper tigers, red herrings, fool’s gold, fake news, Trojan horses, straw men, pink elephants, convincing pretenders, and invisible bridges. There’ll be a reward if you do: close encounters with shockingly beautiful honesty and authenticity that will be among your most useful blessings of 2017.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Of all the signs of the zodiac, you Capricorns are the least likely to believe in mythical utopias like Camelot or El Dorado or Shambhala.

Go to RealAstrology.com to check out Rob Brezsny’s EXPANDED WEEKLY AUDIO HOROSCOPES and DAILY TEXT MESSAGE HOROSCOPES. The audio horoscopes are also available by phone at 1-877-873-4888 or 1-900-950-7700.

You tend to be uber-skeptical about the existence of legendary vanished riches like the last Russian czar’s Fabergé eggs or King John’s crown jewels. And yet if wonderlands and treasures like those really do exist, I’m betting that some may soon be discovered by Capricorn explorers. Are there unaccounted-for masterpieces by Georgia O’Keeffe buried in a basement somewhere? Is the score of a lost Mozart symphony tucked away in a seedy antique store? I predict that your tribe will specialize in unearthing forgotten valuables, homing in on secret miracles, and locating missing mother lodes.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): According to my lyrical analysis of the astrological omens, here are examples of the kinds of experiences you might encounter in the next 21 days: 1. interludes that reawaken memories of the first time you fell in love; 2. people who act like helpful, moon-drunk angels just in the nick of time; 3. healing music or provocative art that stirs a secret part of you — a sweet spot you had barely been aware of; 4. an urge arising in your curious heart to speak the words, “I invite lost and exiled beauty back into my life.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Ex-baseball player Eric DuBose was pulled over by Florida cops who spotted him driving his car erratically. They required him to submit to a few tests, hoping to determine whether he had consumed too much alcohol. “Can you recite the alphabet?” they asked. “I’m from the great state of Alabama,” DuBose replied, “and they have a different alphabet there.” I suggest, Pisces, that you try similar gambits whenever you find yourself in odd interludes or tricky transitions during the coming days — which I suspect will happen more than usual. Answer the questions you want to answer rather than the ones you’re asked, for example. Make jokes that change the subject. Use the powers of distraction and postponement. You’ll need extra slack, so seize it! Homework: If you knew you were going to live to 100, what would you do differently in the next five years? Testify at freewillastrology.com.
